‘SMILF’ creator Frankie Shaw opens up on misconduct allegations

Thursday 18:11 GMT

Despite the allegations, TheWrap.com reported a source “with knowledge of the project” claimed ABC Studios cleared Shaw following an investigation into the accusation of misconduct. The source added Weaving was reportedly released from her contract at her request and will not return to “SMILF” for Season 3, should it get picked up again.

A source claimed that when Weaving, who is Australian, spoke out, Shaw allegedly pulled her into a trailer, “yanked off her own top” and demanded to know why Weaving was worried about going nude when Shaw herself had no concerns of her own about it. Shaw’s attorney told Fox News that any claims of Shaw allegedly exposing her breast to coerce any actor into appearing in any nude scene is “100 percent false” and “it never happened.”

U.S. economy may face trouble if ‘sideways’ Treasury trade doesn’t end

Friday 19:06 GMT

Economists polled by the Wall Street Journal expect the U.S. economy to speed up to an annualized 2.4% growth in the second quarter of 2019 from an expected 2.2% in the current quarter, albeit these estimates are lower than those of a few months ago, after fears a weaker global economy would put the brakes on U.S. momentum.

That’s the warning from Jim Vogel of FTN Financial, who wrote in a Thursday note that if the current “sideways” trading takes hold in government bond trading for too long, that placidity could serve as a more troublesome sign of the economy’s prospects.

Trudeau slams Venezuelan ‘dictator’ Maduro, sidesteps question on Brazil’s president

Thursday 01:30 GMT

Canada will continue to stand up against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Tuesday night — declining, at the same time, to address his government’s recognition of Brazil’s controversial new president Jair Bolsonaro.

“I would propose to you, sir, that anyone who contends to be a friend of Venezuela… who contends that they are a friend to the Venezuelan people would be very clear in standing up and condemning the Maduro government that has been responsible for terrible oppression, for terrible marginalization, for a humanitarian crisis the likes of which South America has not seen in a long time, leading to mass exodus, an extreme number of refugees fleeing all across South America all because of an illegitimate dictator named Maduro who is continuing to not respect their constitution, the rule of law and the principles of what is true and fair for the future,” Trudeau said. The questioner then stated something in response that was inaudible, to which Trudeau responded, “Sorry sir, I disagree and the Venezuelan people will probably significantly disagree with you as well because they’re suffering and they need true democracy.”

Australia v India: MS Dhoni half-century guides tourists to ODI series win

Friday 21:50 GMT

MS Dhoni scored a third successive half century to guide India to a seven-wicket win against Australia and clinch the one-day international series 2-1.

Dhoni was dropped in the 48th over by captain Aaron Finch with India needing 27 runs from the final 18 deliveries, but the former India skipper never looked flustered as he and Jadhav saw the tourists home. The 37-year-old middle-order batsman was named player of the series in recognition of his 193 runs over the three matches - a marked improvement to Dhoni's form in 2018, when he managed just 275 runs from 20 ODIs.

Bandleader Glenn Miller’s doomed plane possibly uncovered decades after disappearing during WWII

Thursday 20:01 GMT

However, Miller’s 1944 Norseman was noted as the only plane in England with a combined steel-tubed fuselage and “a very specific type of Pratt & Whitney engine, known as a Wasp.”

He recorded the coordinates and the magazine noted it is this key piece of evidence that may finally lead to the site of Miller’s final resting place. Miller, recognized as “the hottest recording artist of his era,” dominated the swing music scene during his lifetime and was famous for his self-penned signature tune, 1939’s “Moonlight Serenade.”

Film review: Vice

Saturday 02:25 GMT

As you would expect from a film by the director of Anchorman, Vice does plenty of lampooning of male stupidity and over-confidence: Rockwell is especially entertaining as a goofy Dubya, pathetically grateful to have his authority lifted from his shoulders.

Towards the end of Vice, the film loses all narrative structure and becomes a bullet-pointed list of crimes and outrages.
