What are the things that are working well?’” she explained. “I’m really grateful that it’s the one thing that I can look at 2020 — as crazy as this year has been and difficult — and I’m so grateful for my family time because I’ve reevaluated my work schedule, the time that I’m away from my family, and realized that that was not a good balance for me. So I’m thankful that it happened in that way because it’s made our relationship stronger.”The couple tied the knot in June 1996 and are parents of daughter Natasha, 22, and sons Lev, 20, and Maksim, 18.The Let It Snow actress got real earlier this year about how her family dynamic shifted during the quarantine. “I started 2019 off as an empty nester and now I’ve got a full house again,” she told Us in April. “I am very happy that I have my kids home and spending time with my husband too. Because a lot of times we’re like two ships passing in the night with our work schedule. So that part has been the biggest blessing for me.”- Advertisement – “They do so much good work throughout the year, and this year, because of the pandemic and COVID, things are different,” she told Us on Wednesday. “You always see around the holidays the red kettles and the Red Kettle Campaign supports so much of Salvation Army’s work that they do through the year — helping families in need through shelter and food and job training and daycare. And this year, because we’re not out as much, we’re not out and about, those kettles are gonna suffer. So we’re asking everyone to go to and donate there or drop a few dollars in when you do see the red kettle or set up a monthly donation. They’re expecting 155 percent more families will be in need this holiday season.”With reporting by Christina GaribaldiListen to Us Weekly’s Hot Hollywood as each week the editors of Us break down the hottest entertainment news stories! The Fuller House alum emphasized that she had “incredible” conservations with her brood while detailing other activities they did to pass the time at home. “We’ve been taking lots of walks and playing lots of board games and we’re in sunny California.

first_imgJack Flaherty is speaking out.The 24-year-old California native posted a lengthy message on Twitter Sunday night, calling for justice for the “murder” of George Floyd and opined that law enforcement officials should take a more aggressive stance against other officers who are not as good at their jobs. Flaherty touched on everything, from standing alongside Black Americans and calling for change to wanting to hold substandard police officers accountable for illegal actions, while clearly drawing the line between generalizing law enforcement officials and calling action against unjust ones.In recent days, sports figures from around the world have taken center stage in calling for justice for Floyd, from LeBron James to Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence.Editor’s note: This article originally identified Flaherty as a white athlete. Flaherty is of mixed race. I CANT BREATHE— Jack Flaherty (@Jack9Flaherty) June 1, 2020 Here’s Flaherty’s post in its entirety:What happened to George Floyd and what continues to happen in America is inexcusable. Changes must be made, so that people, like officer Derek Chauvin, are held accountable for their actions. He and the other officers, officer Thomas Lane, officer Tou Thao, and officer J. Alexander Kueng, knew what they were doing was wrong. Standling idly by, as a man is MURDERED in broad daylight, is just as guilty as committing the action itself. 8 minutes and 46 seconds of a man crying out I CAN’T BREATHE, a man crying out for his dead mother, and you still CHOOSE to stand by and do nothing.The system continues to fail time and time again and nothing seems to change. Officers are not being held accountable for their actions. The badge and blue uniform are not a pedestal that puts a citizen of the United States of America above the law. The badge and blue uniform are there to distinguish those who are meant to PROTECT their communities, not terrorize and kill those that are meant to protect and serve. That being said, not all police officers are bad, but those who are not bad need to be speaking up about the injustices. Your voice needs to be heard. Your silence is speaking just as loud.Speak up, so that your communities don’t lose complete trust and faith in you. Speak up against the injustices, speak up so that the oath, your uniform and your badge don’t become meaningless.As for everyone else, especially those who have been able to reap the benefits of being born with white skin. Help make a difference. Use your voice. Support Black owned businesses. Educate yourself so that you can become aware of your own privileges you have had throughout your life. Educate yourself, to have a better understanding.Have tough conversations with those closest to you, help change the system. There is much to be done and we must not give up. Especially after all of this starts to dwindle, because the media doesn’t find it to be “new” and “exciting” anymore. Don’t stand silent. If we ever needed unity it’s right now! We can make a difference one person at a time. Today is the day to start so that others can live without being in constant fear of their lives being striped away from them, or the lives of their loved ones. We are stronger together than we are apart, and together we must fight to stop these injustices. Not next week, or next year. Right now! MORE: Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence understands the importance of using his voice as a white athleteFlaherty seems to understand the importance of being an athlete in a racially charged society, using his platform to reach others to take action. It’s even more important when you realize Flaherty is speaking out as a star athlete in a sport where race has constantly been at the forefront of discussions and controversies.last_img read more

first_imgThough we’re over a year away from the PS5 hitting shelves, rumors about the upcoming game console are heating up. And with the leak today of a Sony patent showing off the device’s proposed design, excitement might just ignite. The patent, published by LetsGoDigital, registers a “Sony electronic device” which looks a lot like a game console that is most likely the next-gen PS5. We could not find the device listed on WIPO, but our sister site TechRadar believes the page is on pretty good authority.MORE: PS5: Release Date, Specs, Games and LeaksWhat’s unique about the patented design is the imaginative V-shaped ventilation system. It could be a reference to the Roman numeral V, indicating the fifth version of Sony’s flagship console. The company has played with numerical designs in the past with the tiers on the PS3 and PS4.RECOMMENDED VIDEOS FOR YOU…logoCreated with Sketch.

Even if just a placeholder, though, this PS5 build would look stellar under a tree. Based on what we’ve heard about the PS5 so far, Sony is promising strong performance via an 8-core AMD chipset based on Ryzen architecture and a Radeon Navi GPU. You can also expect very fast load times via a custom SSD, and backwards compatibility with all PS4 games. Though not confirmed, the PS5 game lineup may include exclusives such as The Last of Us II, as well as next-gen titles such as Starfield and The Elder Scrolls VI. Most signs point to a late 2020 release, meaning the PS5 will arrive in time for the holiday season.
