    Business Insider ^ | June 22, 2018 | Harrison Jacobs and Myelle Lansat
    The Gangnam district is known as "South Korea's Beverly Hills" for its exorbitant real-estate prices and wealthy residents. •Property in Gangnam is three and a half times as expensive as South Korea's real-estate average. •The Gangnam neighborhoods of Cheongdam and Apgujeong are full of luxury fashion houses, plastic-surgery clinics, high-end real estate, and the homes of many Korean celebrities. •PSY's international song "Gangnam Style" famously lampooned the wealthy district, which has an outsized reputation in Korean culture. Ever since PSY's international mega-hit "Gangnam Style" in 2012, people all over the world have heard the name of Seoul's most affluent district....

    AT&T will drop $100M on its four-block downtown Dallas campus, adding restaurants, a small outdoor concert venue and a six-story video wall. The renovation, which would be completed by the end of 2019, will join a number of redevelopment projects in downtown's southeast quadrant in the last year: the Statler Hotel renovation, a two-year upgrade of the Adolphus Hotel and the relocation of the Dallas Morning News to the old Dallas library. "We're looking to inject additional growth, commerce and entertainment into Downtown Dallas," AT&T Regional Vice President Mike Peterson said in a news release Monday. "This investment will result...

    Liberals want to win the victory they can’t achieve at the ballot box by using their cultural power to systematically marginalize and exclude Normal Americans from every aspect of society – and we can’t let them. From the business world to Hollywood, we are seeing them react to their utter repudiation in recent elections by trying to intimidate us into silent conformity as the price of us being allowed to participate in the non-governmental institutions of society. We must therefore have a two-part response to this act of cultural warfare – not only must we get right back in their smug...

    Disney’s “Star Wars”-themed lands at its California and Florida resorts now have opening seasons. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open first at Disneyland in Anaheim in the summer of 2019, followed by a late autumn opening for the one at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando. No other details were released. The 14-acre themed areas will represent a location on a planet called Batuu, which the company previously called “a remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge that was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes.”(continued)

    The late Harry Anderson and his appearances as the youthful Judge Harry T. Stone on Night Court and elsewhere in the 1980’s were funny and often magical. It should not be surprising as magic was Harry’s passion. He was a special guy and will be missed and the show that defines him, Night Court, which ran from January 1984 to May 1992, was a unique show. Night Court was never popular in the way The Cosby Show, Family Ties, or Cheers were. Perhaps this is because Night Court had strong slapstick comedy. Night Court also had a more than a...

    For just one week, the leftist blacklisters who run popular culture allowed Trump supporters and the Faithful a shot at playing in the game, and look at what happened — we took the place over and the results were Roseanne’s viewership record, ratings wins, and big profits at the box office. Who could have ever predicted such a thing? After all, there are only about 150 million of us.Someone once made a joke about how the late Roger Ailes was a genius to figure out that with roughly half the country alienated by the left-leaning mainstream media, a Fox News...

    American Spectator ^ | Fall 2016 | Grant Wishard, Paul Kengor
    Herb Meyer would be commended by the intelligence community for his extraordinary 1983 memo predicting that America was going to win the Cold War — this at a time when virtually no one (other than Ronald Reagan and Bill Casey) thought winning was possible. Today his task remains the same. It should come as a revelation to those glued to the 24-hour news cycle that things aren’t as bad “out there” as we think. The evening news never reports the countless airplanes that land on time and unharmed, or the daily billions who walk through malls and shopping centers without...

    Townhall.com ^ | March 23, 2018 | Brent Bozell
    One thing that defines liberals is their incessant desire to push political messages into every time and space. Their "compassion" and "inclusion" is perpetually shoved in our faces. That problem has metastasized under President Trump. The urgency of their "resistance" is knocking down all the barriers. Don't they know that most Americans don't want politics invading every sphere? Can't they see that audiences of sporting events and awards shows are suffering? They would plead that TV ratings for everything are down because fewer people are buying cable or satellite TV. But now we have evidence that this endless politicization is...

    A care home has hired pole dancers to keep its elderly residents entertained. Pictures from the latest performance show residents watching the dancers acrobatically spin around a metal pole in sports bras and knickers. It’s been branded ‘inappropriate’ by local councillors, who said they were ‘staggered’ by the choice of entertainment. But bosses at Fairmile Grange home in Christchurch, Dorset, defended its decision to hire the dancers, the youngest being 10-years-old. Izzy Nicholls, operations and quality director for Encore Care Homes, which runs Fairmile Grange, said: ‘At Fairmile Grange, relatives and residents requested more modern-style activities.However, Councillor Peter Hall said...

    When Clint Eastwood’s 2016 drama Sully arrived in theaters, many people thought they knew the story of Captain Chesley Sullenberger. They thought they knew what happened after the heroic pilot safely landed his malfunctioning plane on the Hudson River in 2009. The film showed otherwise. It offered a revealing look back at the media frenzy and investigation that ensued after that January day. 15:17 to Paris, Eastwood’s latest feature, tells a more traditional story. The new drama stars three real-life heroes who helped prevent a terrorist attack on a Paris-bound train in 2015. Alek Skarlatos, Anthony Sadler and Spencer Stone...

  • Hostiles Review: Thoughtful Western showcases strong characters

    Townhall.com ^ | February 3, 2018 | John Hanlon
    The new Western Hostiles begins with an unshakably violent event. A small family is attacked and brutalized by a group of Native Americans. There’s no justification for the violence. Only bloodshed. There’s no moral ambiguity in that sequence but as the film tells a larger story, moral ambivalence takes center stage as the story explores the omnipresence of violence in the Old West. Set in 1896, the feature stars Oscar winner Christian Bale as Captain Joseph J. Blocker. Blocker is a weary warrior who has seen his share of violence and engaged in his share of battles. He’s seen friends...
