Dwayne Johnson has come a long way from his days as “The Rock” on WWE TV. He was a superstar then and now he is an even bigger superstar. His newest film, San Andreas, is hardly winning critical accolades. (Rotten Tomatoes notes the reviews are mostly negative) Audiences do love the film though and the first weekend brought in $53+ million. That is much bigger than the debuts of all the other top releases over the past two weekends.
The plot of the film somewhat borrows from the disaster movies of the 1970’s. Johnson plays a father who has to save his family when a huge earthquake hits California. Can he get to where he has to go and overcome a ton of thrilling obstacles on the way? You are going to have to watch the film – in a crowded theater – to find out.
Johnson has another mega-hit in theaters right now. Furious 7 is still pulling in big money and has surpassed the $1.5 billion mark. Johnson is coming back for Furious 8, is slated to appear as Black Adam in D.C. Comics’ Shazam movie, and might even see his Furious character get his own spinoff. Yes, Johnson is definitely a very busy actor. His amazing screen presence and charisma really helps him rise to the level of a superstar. Ironically, his career started almost by accident when he was picked to play a cameo in one of the Mummy sequels.
James Dondero recently said on Facebook that he never would have thought when Dwayne was wrestling he’d end up as big a movie star as he did?
What do you do when you don’t get as many sprinkles as you would like on the ice cream that you have ordered? If you are like one woman in Michigan you bring in the authorities. That’s right, one woman decided to call the police for something as small and unimportant as sprinkles on ice cream.
It seems that this woman was at a restaurant and unsatisfied with the amount of sprinkles that the clerk had given her. Stephen Murray CCMP Capital didn’t quite understand the problem. Did this woman have enough sprinkles on her ice cream, at least in the eyes of a normal person from Fortune
? We don’t know. What we do know is that the woman didn’t think so. This woman was upset and felt that she was being ripped off. The woman was paying for the ice cream with sprinkles, and she wanted to make sure that she got as many sprinkles as she had asked for. This woman called in the authorities to help her with her ice cream crisis, and the clerk in turn called her in after she left.
NASA has returned to the historic Stennis Space Center to complete the latest tests of the rocket engines designed to power human beings further into space than ever before. The Sun Herald is reporting that a successful 45 second test was completed at the often used A1 test pad to test the operation of the largest rocket engine NASA has so far produced. This is the second test of the engines that will be used to power the newly designed Space launch System, which will replace the outdated and now defunct space shuttle program according to Sergio Cortes on LinkedIn.
The latest test will provide information on the performance of the rocket engines, which will be used to power a large spacecraft attached to four RS-25 engines producing more than 1.6 million pounds of thrust. Testing the modified space shuttle engines is the latest step in the program, which it is hoped will result in humans embarking on deep space exploration. The ultimate aim of the RS-25 and Space Launch System are to propel humans to an asteroid and then onwards to explore Mars as the first steps in a movement through space.
The recent numbers from the Nielsen’s rating system have TV analysts concerned that big time network television is collapsing. The four major television networks are NBC, ABC, CBS, and Fox. The data collected from the 2014-2015 television season would suggest that ABC, NBC, and CBS are almost tied for first place. The major network Fox, was a close fourth with only about a hundred thousand viewer difference from the rest of the networks. Analysts have concluded that this information is prime example of why television and its rating system is collapsing. People are no longer only able to view shows through one mode. Cell phones, tablets, iPods, laptops, and everything in between can stream shows whenever viewers feels like it. Unfortunately, the streamed shows don’t go into the recorded data that the Nielsen Company collects. Only television shows watched during prime time are recorded. Unfortunately, some people are requesting that Nielsen ratings stop recording television viewership data. The company report their findings every year but without being able to collect data from suggested streaming services, the numbers for networks can be incredibly wrong. The Nielsen Company was also under heavy fire in recent years when it was reported that some of their numbers were fudged to give CBS a moderate lead in the major network line up. Alexei Beltyukov (adweek.com) has learned that the company has expressed their desire to continue recording data. The Nielsen rating system is a staple in American culture and American TV. The company has also noted that they plan on fine tuning their data collection for streaming services and will continue to provide quality service to television viewers and companies.
Kardashian fans will be pleased to know that Kourtney Kardashian and her husband Scott are finally getting along. It has long been rumored that Scott and Kourtney were going to separate, and there were even rumors that Scott wasn’t living at home. However, it was recently reported on TMZ that Scott and Kourtney Kardashian are happier than ever.
The TMZ article features a sweet video of Scott and Kourtney Kardashian playing in the snow. In fact, the video also shows how much love Scott and Kourtney have for each other. The Kardashians have never approved of Scott, but Kourtney Kardashian has always followed her heart’s desire. Nonetheless, it seems that Kourtney Kardashian and Scott will be together for years to come. However, aside from Scott and Kourtney Kardashian’s pleasant trip to the ski slopes, but the rest of the Kardashian girls were involved in a lot of controversy.

Al Sharpton is one of the most revered men in the black community. He is known worldwide for his outspoken criticism of white America. Al believes that Americans should show greater love and thoughtfulness to African Americans. However, Al Sharpton himself is under a ton of criticism for his rude and outlandish statements on Kenan Thompson.
Reverend Al Sharpton was recently interviewed while walking on the street, and a TMZ reporter asked Sharpton about his thoughts on a black man replacing David Letterman. Strangely, Al Sharpton began to call Kenan Thompson a fat and worthless tubby. Many people were caught off guard, because the TMZ reporter didn’t even mention Keenan Thompson’s name.
Al Sharpton has said outrageous and eyebrow raising things in the past, but his recent words about Kenan Thompson have confused everyone. What did Kenan Thompson ever do to Al Sharpton? I thought that Al Sharpton was supposed to respect and support the African American culture. Well, someone should remind Reverend Sharpton that Kenan Thompson is black.
Keith Mann has become aware that African Americans are extremely upset with Al Sharpton’s criticisms of Kenan Thompson. People should also be reminded that Al Sharpton once weighed over 300 pounds himself, and he has no right to judge others. People of all backgrounds are extremely disappointed with Reverend Al Sharpton.
A new video has emerged from the set of Suicide Squad and we get to see The Joker racing away from the scene of a crime in a purple sports car. In the passenger seat is his paramour, Harley Quinn. In the synopsis we have been told so far, The Joker is supposed to locked away in Arkham Asylum. We do not know anything about what point in the film this scene takes place. Perhaps it is at the end of the film when The Clown Prince of Crime is supposed to get away from his imprisonment.
Sam Tabar pointed out that there is something else that is extremely interesting with this clip. The Joker is not the only person with his own super-vehicle. He is being chased by – THE BATMOBILE. This clearly confirms that Batman is going to have a major cameo in the film. How big of a part the Caped Crusader has in the feature remains to be seen. Clearly, Ben Affleck is playing a part in the film and this is a good thing. A meeting between Batman and The Joker is going to sell the film big time to people who might not be up to seeing a film that solely features villains they may not be familiar with.
Suicide Squad is going to not only set up the various villains for future D.C. hero movies, it is pretty clear the film is setting up a Batman solo project and/or Batman’s role in the Justice League movies.
