Sony Pictures’ Foxcatcher Movie Trailer & Poster

On behalf of Sony Pictures Classics, we are excited to share a NEW Official Teaser Poster from the upcoming film FOXCATCHER, starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo & directed by Bennett Miller!

Synopsis

Based on true events, FOXCATCHER tells the dark and fascinating story of the unlikely and ultimately tragic relationship between an eccentric multi-millionaire and two champion wrestlers. 

When Olympic Gold Medal winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is invited by wealthy heir John du Pont (Steve Carell) to move on to the du Pont estate and help form a team to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new state-of-the-art training facility, Schultz jumps at the opportunity, hoping to focus on his training and finally step out of the shadow of his revered brother, Dave (Mark Ruffalo). Driven by hidden needs, du Pont sees backing Schultz’s bid for Gold and the chance to "coach" a world-class wrestling team as an opportunity to gain the elusive respect of his peers and, more importantly, his disapproving mother (Vanessa Redgrave).

 

Flattered by the attention and entranced by du Pont’s majestic world, Mark comes to see his benefactor as a father figure and grows increasingly dependent on him for approval. Though initially supportive, du Pont’s mercurial personality turns and he begins to lure Mark into an unhealthy lifestyle that threatens to undermine his training. Soon du Pont’s erratic behavior and cruel psychological game-play begin to erode the athlete’s already shaky self-esteem. Meanwhile du Pont becomes fixated on Dave, who exudes the confidence both he and Mark lack, knowing that these are things even his money cannot buy. Fueled by du Pont’s increasing paranoia and alienation from the brothers, the trio is propelled towards a tragedy no one could have foreseen.

FOXCATCHER is a rich and moving story of brotherly love, misguided loyalty and the corruption and emotional bankruptcy that can accompany great power and wealth. As with Academy Award® nominee Bennett Miller’s previous feature films, CAPOTE and MONEYBALL, he explores large themes in society through his complex character portraits of real people.

Ensuring Health for Mom and Baby

 

clip_image001Are thoughts of baby booties and the pitter patter of small feet running through your mind? Whether you are trying to conceive or are already pregnant, your health should become a priority. Before you wonder if you’ll ever be able to brush your teeth alone again, there are few things that need tending too, for instance your body. While regular prenatal checkups are an important piece to this puzzle, there are some over-the-counter items that should be on your list for your next run to the grocery store, if they are not already.

Head for the vitamin aisle near the pharmacy or wherever it is in the layout of the store. Search for the prenatal vitamin section. There are going to be a few different options to choose from. Either choose the brand specifically recommended by your doctor or look for one manufactured by reputed companies such as The Honest Company. You may need to switch your choice later, but for the health of both mom and baby, these vitamins are an important purchase.

Vitamins for Mom

There are so many types of vitamins available to consumers today, it can be hard to determine exactly which one to take and why. Mothers to be and those who are trying, but want to get a jump start on ensuring their health and the health of their fetus should consider vitamins a part of their routine.

These vitamins can provide many benefits to the mother including boosting her body and protecting her baby from problems either before or after birth. For instance, a mother’s low vitamin D level may lead to dental problems for babies after they are born, according to US News and World Report. However, many already include the recommended amount. As always, if there are questions or concerns the expectant mothers should consult their doctors for more in depth information.

No matter what form of the prenatal vitamin that you chose, chewable or not, the important thing is to take them. Some are available by prescription only while others can be purchased over the counter, do not combine supplements, but do find the one that works for you, according to the American Pregnancy Association.

Impact Baby

The positive impact of proper maternal care including vitamins, on a fetus has been proven time and again. Vitamins and supplements can help lower the chances of or prevent certain health problems all together.

Two of the most important ingredients in a prenatal vitamin are iron and folic acid, according to the Mayo Clinic. Moms to-be and those trying to conceive should really learn how these two elements work in pregnancy. Iron will help baby grow and support mom’s body by preventing anemia. Taking folic acid supplements, even before pregnancy, is extremely important because it helps prevent many health issues including neural tube problems that can affect the brain and spinal cord.

After Birth

By their nature, these supplements are intended to be taken prior to giving birth. However, there have been some benefits linked to continuing these vitamins after the baby is born. It is important to note that your doctor is the best judge whether or not this is a safe practice for you.

If you are on the fence whether or not to continue your regimen once your new family member makes an appearance there are a few things you and your partner may want to keep in mind. This information is especially important if you are planning to breastfeed your new addition.

· You used to supply baby with nutrients while they were in the womb, now you supply them once again. Keep up the strong flow of good new nutrition.

· One consideration for the new mom is the amount of calcium. It likely will not be enough to supplement your needs as you feed. Consider adding other sources of calcium to your diet to make up for the short fall, but consult your doctor first.

· You only need one supplement instead of multiple. Just in the prenatal stage, only one type should do unless doctor’s orders state otherwise. Just imagine one quick second to yourself that can impact both you and your baby.

The importance of strong prenatal health cannot be stressed enough. It is important to consider every aspect of life from your daily workout to your diet, vitamins included when considering starting a family. These elements grow in importance once conception has taken place. Even on a weak stomach, vitamins are essential. Whether they are store bought, it does not matter because that can have a positive impact on the health of the mother and the baby prior to and even after

Morgan Fairchild & Lindsay Hartley Star In "Perfect On Paper"

 

PerfectOnPaper_

For those moving to Los Angeles from other cities and towns, the West Coast metropolis can require a bit of an adjustment period. But the secret to success is making sure not to judge a book by its cover, a lesson that fuels the romantic new Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere “Perfect On Paper” Saturday, September 20 (9 p.m. ET/PT, 8C). The film features the incomparable Morgan Fairchild (“The Seduction,” “The Bold and the Beautiful”) as its marquee star, alongside soap opera darling Lindsay Hartley (“Passions,” “All My Children”). Fairchild portrays author Beverly Wilcox, a powerful, glamorous and intimidating figure straight out of “The Devil Wears Prada.” Our heroine in this tale of love and literature is Natalie Holland (Hartley), a book editor from Portland who unfortunately hasn’t had good luck in relationships. But when Natalie accepts a job offer from a publishing friend in Los Angeles, she finds herself moving to the West Coast metropolis and working alongside Beverly. As if that weren’t enough, more complications arise when she meets a handsome surfer (Drew Fuller of “Charmed”) and a charming, successful LA attorney (Kieren Hutchison of “One Tree Hill”). As tensions mount at work and in romance, the young editor learns a lesson about judging a book by its cover and finds out that guys who look “Perfect On Paper” may not always be the better choice.

Denny’s Dishes & Coupons TO End Childhood Hunger @NoKidHungry #DennysNKH #Dennysdiners

Making sure that children don’t go hungry is a BIG deal to me. My husband’s family was homeless for a brief period of time. And they used food banks to eat, making me want to keep food banks as full as I can so I love to support brands that support the No Kid Hungry campaign.

A wholesome breakfast can jumpstart any day, as studies have known that kids who eat school breakfast are more apt to attend class, perform better on standardized tests and, as a result, are 20 percent more likely to graduate high school. In an effort to ensure that every child in the U.S. starts his or her day off right with nutritious, attainable meals, Denny’s (#DennysNKH) is teaming up with and raising funds for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign, a national movement aimed at ending childhood hunger by connecting kids with healthy food where they live, learn and play.

From Aug. 15 through Sept. 30, nearly 1,600 Denny’s nationwide will sell coupons in support of No Kid
Hungry’s efforts to help the more than 16 million American children struggling with hunger. For a $3
donation, guests will receive $9 worth of coupons redeemable at participating Denny’s restaurants.
Every dollar donated helps feed a child up to 10 healthy meals.

In addition, guests are invited to contribute to the cause via two alternative means this year, including
making a monetary donation of their choice at dennys.com/nokidhungry; all who donate online will be
e-mailed a coupon for $5 off their next $20 meal at Denny’s. Customers can also pledge their support by
purchasing one of three exclusive No Kid Hungry campaign t-shirts – designed by Denny’s team
members in Texas, Nevada and Kentucky – for $10 each. T-shirts are produced by Booster, available at
dennys.com/nokidhungry and a portion of all sales goes directly to No Kid Hungry.

“Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry effort is by far one of our nation’s most important, most influential
and impactful campaigns aimed at ending childhood hunger in this country to-date, and Denny’s is
proud to be a partner in the movement for the fourth year in a row,” said Denny’s Chief Executive
Officer John Miller. “With one in five children struggling with hunger in the U.S., Denny’s remains
committed to No Kid Hungry and in the organization’s efforts to increase school breakfast participation
nationwide, thereby bettering our kids’ academic, health and economic futures.” 

Since 2011, Denny’s has donated more than $1.4 million to the No Kid Hungry campaign. In order to
increase its impact this year, Denny’s is beginning its fundraising efforts, which includes online t-shirt
and in-unit coupon sales, a full two weeks ahead of most partners. 

“We are grateful for Denny’s continued commitment,” said Billy Shore, co-founder of Share Our
Strength. “It matches the commitment of our nation’s teachers who see their students regularly coming
to school hungry and who know that academic success can be measured in meals—especially breakfast
in the school day. By dining out at your local Denny’s, pledging your support online or even just buying a
t-shirt, you’re helping every child get that most important meal of the day and making No Kid Hungry a
reality.”

Watch As Endangered Sea Turtle Lays Nest on Beach @harbourvillageb #Travel

Humans aren’t the only ones drawn to Harbour Village Beach Club’ serene, sandy shore. The resort recently welcomed what scientists believe is a repeat guest: a critically endangered Hawksbill sea turtle, who laid a nest of about 100 eggs near where it likely hatched 17 years ago.

turtles

The hatchlings are expected to emerge from the eggs and scramble through the sand and into the sea between September 5 – 15. To capture the moment and help educate people about these magnificent creatures, Harbour Village is working with Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire to set up a live web cam and nightly watches near the nest beginning the week of August 18. Updates will be posted at http://www.harbourvillage.com/turtlecam.html

"This is something we want to share not only with our guests but with everyone interested in learning about sea turtles and how we can help protect them," said Jean-Marc Petin, General Manager of Harbour Village Beach Club. "We will catch the hatching live on camera, and Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire will provide volunteers to sit with the nest each evening around hatching time to document the event and notify guests when to come and watch the turtles come out of the nest."

Harbour Village Beach Club is located on a four-acre private peninsula on Bonaire’s mainland. The nest, currently marked and roped off so as not to be disturbed, is located near the resort’s dive shop.

Bonaire is home to three of the seven species of sea turtles in the world: hawksbills, green turtles and loggerheads. Hawksbill turtles weigh up to 185 pounds and prefer calm, tropical waters near coral reefs. They come ashore only to nest. The turtle who laid the nest at Harbour Village came onto the beach on July 12. A Hawksbill turtle laid her eggs near the same spot in 1997. Since sea turtles usually return to next where they hatched to nest, local scientists believe the turtle was likely one of those hatchlings.

In addition to sea turtles, the Caribbean waters surrounding Bonaire teems with a wide variety of marine life. The island is designated as having the most pristine coral reef environment and most species of fish in the Caribbean by the NOAA and is consistently named Best Overall Dive Destination by Scuba Diving Magazine’s Reader’s Choice Awards. Due to the island’s leeward location outside of the hurricane belt, and its consistently pleasant climate, crystal-clear visibility prevails at any depth and gives an enthralling view of the undersea landscape. On land, Bonaire is also home to the world’s largest pink flamingo nesting grounds.

Dive sites just off Harbour Village’s shore include the shipwreck of the 60-foot "Our Confidence," located just 50 yards out, while another popular dive site, "Something Special," is also a short swim away. The resort also offers florescence night diving, allowing guests to use special UV lights to see the astounding array of florescent colors emitted by underwater animals and corals.
