After Deepika Padukone, Kangana Ranaut and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, now it's Sonam Kapoor's turn to bowl everyone with her ultra glamorous fashion statements at Cannes Film Festival. Needless to say that the Bollywood beauty has already made a splashing start at the French riviera with her chic style choices. Of course, we expected nothing less from the fashionista, who is known for her edgy sense of fashion, and has walked the red carpet at the international event since 2011. This year too, the new bride seems to be all geared up to make her Cannes appearance 'phenomenal'.Like they say that first impressions matter, Sonam Kapoor's stylish first look was proof that she was at Cannes to rule. She arrived dressed in a black and white, polka dotted dress from the spring summer 2018 collection of Mother of Pearl, a luxury womenswear brand from UK. She channeled the classic French vibe in this tailored midi dress with bell sleeves and a contrasting polka dotted scarf while teaming it with all black accessories a Bottega Veneta handbag, a pair of Victoria Beckham sunglasses and ankle boots from Chloe.
Politico reported #xA0;this week on two monitoring reports by the Sunlight Foundation apos;s Web Integrity Project #xA0;that #xA0;tracked the HHS website WomensHealth.gov. The organization #xA0;found a webpage that provided health resources for lesbian and bisexual women had been removed last fall between September and October 2017.The website, overseen by the HHS Office on Women apos;s Health, first posted the pages in 2012. quot;The outdated lesbian and bisexual health pages were removed and the health content was integrated into the relevant health topics pages across the website, quot; an HHS spokesperson told Politico, stating the changes were a part of a routine update. #xA0;
The Sunlight Foundation is a nonprofit and nonpartisan organization focused on quot;making government and politics more accountable and transparent, quot; according to its website. It published a pair of reports on Mar. 21 alleging that quot;the Office of Women's Health (OWH) removed a webpage with extensive information about lesbian and bisexual health, and links that correspond to that webpage, from its website. quot; The Sunlight Foundation found that a PDF containing similar content to the content that was removed is still live on WomensHealth.gov, but quot;it is not linked from elsewhere ... rendering it inaccessible by navigating through the website. quot;The Sunlight Foundation further stated, quot;The removals are part of a broader pattern of changes to the OWH website in which access to other informational resources, such as those pertaining to breast cancer, men s health, healthy aging, and other health topics, in addition to lesbian and bisexual health, have also been reduced. quot;
The search for Scar for the live action Lion King rages on. Sources at the D23 expo had said that Scar would be played by Hugh Jackman but now there are reports that Chiwetel Ejiofor is up for the role. Which is fine.Chiwetel is an incredible actor and someone we can really appreciate on screen. If you haven t seen his work in Z for Zachariah, I cannot encourage you enough. He s incredible in it. But here s the thing that I love about what the Broadway show did and what I thought the movie was doing: Casting a white man as Scar unintentionally makes the villain even worse.Now granted, Jackman is a sweet man and we all know that. But so is Jeremy Irons (the original voice for Scar). But to me, there is just something ominous about a white man being the villain and then being killed by Simba at the end. (Albeit unintentionally but still, our Simba came back to Pride Rock to save the day.)Does he need to be a white man?The idea that Scar is a white man goes further than just a white guy taking another role. Let s look at Scar for a second. He s a power hungry lion who brutally murders his own brother in order for him to become king. He s ruthless and he takes what he wants.All these qualities are represented in our history. Just look at what happened when white men came to America. Many of them took what they wanted and didn t care who was hurt in the process. Something about casting a white man for the role would tap that deep history of greedy white men acting, well, villainous.This is also me thinking a bit too deeply about the casting of Scar, but I think it has the potential to have a very powerful message.So yes, I d be very happy with Chiwetel as Scar because the most important thing, for me, is Scar s voice and Chiwetel has a pretty amazing one. (Scar s voice was my favorite thing as a kid. It is just those Jeremy Irons pipes.)I just think that it d be interesting to keep Hugh Jackman as the predicted Scar, the evil villain who gets his due. But either way, I m happy with either of these men taking on the role. Again, the important part of Scar? That sweet, sweet voice.

By now, you 've probably seen that video claiming that Game of Thrones has killed over 150,000 characters in its 60 episodes so far. Now, we 're going to guess that the number is going to jump even higher in season 7. Why else would the trailers emphasize war so much? No, there 's going to be some dying going on. That 's not really a bold prediction. But io9 found a new analysis breaking down the first six seasons by the numbers. While io9 chose to focus on screen time, Looker also analyzed when deaths of characters that we actually care about are more likely to occur by episode counts. In fact, there 's even a trend.Basically, in recent seasons, the season finale and the midpoint of the season are likely to be deadliest. Now, Looker was operating on the idea of the regular 10 episode season, since the analysis focused primarily on the already extent seasons of the show.Of course, season 7 doesn 't actually have 10 episodes. There are seven instead. But you can 't neatly divide seven by two. That means that episodes 3 and 4 could sort of split the mid season death duties in season 7, and then episode 7 just makes up for the three missing episodes and kills as many characters as it can get away with.And then season 8 will just throw all the patterns out the window.Could season 7 already start to defy this pattern, though? We don 't think episode 1 will ramp things up too much or start with a bang. That comes from season 6, where we had to wait until episode 2 for Jon Snow to do what we all figured what he would and come back to life.Just as a guess, episode 1 might end on a big moment as a sort of "welcome back ". After all, Thrones has an hour to play with in the season 7 premiere. It could be a nice callback to season 1, where Jaime Lannister pushed Bran Stark out of a window right before the credits rolled.Additionally, Looker found that the show has been a lot more willing to kill its named characters (something it emphasizes, probably so as not to have to make the estimates that the video does) in the previous three seasons. Now, this makes sense on a practical level. The show has expanded widely in seasons 4, 5, and 6, meaning that there are more people who can die. Besides, it also has multiple assassins among its named characters now.Next: Will Jon Snow survive season 7?Keep an eye on those patterns as we get closer to Game of Thrones season 7 's premiere on July 16.
