Dmitry Isakov holds a sign reading “Being gay and loving gays is normal. Beating gays and killing gays is a crime!”

An LGBT activist risks becoming the first person convicted under Russia’s new anti-gay law after police charged him for holding a one-man protest against it.

Police in the central Russian city of Kazan filed charges against Dmitry Isakov Thursday for his protest on July 30 this year, his legal team told BuzzFeed. Isakov stood in the city center holding a sign that said, “Being gay and loving gays is normal. Beating gays and killing gays is a crime!”

Isakov, 24, is not the first person charged under the law, passed in late June, but stands a good change of being the first person convicted under it, his legal team said. Police in the northern city of Murmansk arrested four Dutch nationals making a film about discrimination faced by LGBT Russians in July, but a local judge decided not to pursue the charges. A Moscow court referred charges against six activists arrested for a protest outside a children’s library a few days later back to the police, citing irregularities.

Police filed the charges on the basis of a complaint from a teenager in the northern Arkhangelskaya province who had seen Isakov’s protest online. The teenager, Erik Fedoseyev, wrote that he had been forced to write the complaint by his father, who hates LGBT people because his ex-wife, Fedoseyev’s mother, had left the family to live with another woman when he was four. Intolerance and incomprehension lead many LGBT Russians to hide their orientation and start straight families.

The charges are only the latest consequence Isakov has faced for his protest. He told London’s The Times that four policemen beat him so badly after he left the protest that he had to walk on crutches for 10 days. When his injured knee allowed him to return to work at a local branch of Sberbank, the former Soviet banking behemoth, he learned that he had been abruptly fired. Sberbank said that the woman he was providing long-term maternity cover for had cut her three-year leave early and that the protest was not a factor in his dismissal.

Isakov attempted to hold another one-man protest in the same place, but it was broken up by his own parents, who had been told by police that he would be jailed under the propaganda law. He faces a fine of up to 5,000 rubles ($150) if convicted. Officials found guilty under the law can be fined ten times that, while the maximum fine for people who use the media or the internet to promote homosexuality to minors is 100,000 rubles ($3,000).

Right now, I currently eat about seven meals a day. One breakfast, three lunches, two dinners…and then a snack, just to keep me going.

Imagine what it’ll be like when I’m pregnant one day. I’LL BE EATING FOR TWO. I’mma go ham on cheeseburgers and burritos every day, baby. Can’t wait.

Blac Chyna totally feels me on this. The girl is well on her way with baby number two and seems to be living it up.

During a Facebook Live chat on Wednesday, Rob Kardashian revealed he’s spent $13,000 in one month on food delivery for pregnant Chy.

LOL. $13K! THAT’S FOOD GOALS RIGHT THERE.

Seriously, I think I found my hero. I guess if I had $13,000 to spend on food, I’d use it up too. But um, my financial situation is just a little different.

If you’re a big fan of food delivery (I mean, who isn’t?) I’d check out the service Postmates. That’s what Rob and Chyna use, so it must be tasty as hell.

So what kind of foods has Blac Chyna been eating these past few months? Well, she confessed her two biggest cravings are P.F. Chang’s and Philly cheesesteaks.


THATTA GIRL. I’ve never been more proud.

If you love Rob and Chyna as much as I do (eh, I’m really just feeling Chyna…no offense, Rob) then check out their new reality show “Rob & Chyna”premiering on September 11.


You can watch the entire Facebook Live interview below.


Also, I suggest you follow Blac Chyna on Snapchat and watch her stories. Her yelling at Rob all the time is pure gold.

Now BRB, gonna go order a Philly cheesesteak.

I’m so happy I could cry real, Dawson Teary tears: a Dawson’s Creek might finally happen on the upcoming season of Van Der Beek’s Don’t Trust The B In Apt 23. So far, Joshua Jackson, Michelle Williams, and Busy Phillipps have all told news outlets that they’re game for it but one question remains: will Katie Holmes agree now that she’s out from under Tom’s wrath?

Holy crap! Rumors are swirling that Justin Timberlake is recording a “crazy” new album as we speak. Producer Jim Beanz (who has worked with both Britney Spears and Katy Perry in the past) said the following: “I’m going to be helping out on Shock Value 3 with Timbaland and the Justin Timberlake project. It’s still in the early stages, but they have a lot of tracks.” A lot of tracks!?!??! Holy moly.

After months of speculation, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis were photographed holding hands. Hope Demi’s dealing with the news in a reasonable manner.

Robsten Is Totally Broken, Day 14. Can you believe it’s been two weeks since the very-public breakup of Twilight’s lead couple? Well, it has.

His family abandoned him and left him to survive off of the scraps that strangers threw him in the streets.

This starved Nigerian boy was naked, full of worms and walking the streets of Nigeria alone when he was found by Anja, a Danish rescue worker.The emaciated 2-year-old was abandoned by his family because they believed he was a witch.

Thousands of children are being accused of being witches,”said Anja.In 2009, an estimated 15,000 children werereportedly accused of witchcraft in two of Nigerias 36 states over a decade. Around 1,000 of them had been murdered.

The little boy had been surviving the last eightmonths off of the mere scraps that strangers threw to him in the streets.


Anja Ringgren Loven/Facebook

Anja immediately wrapped the boy (who she named Hope) in a blanket and rushed him to the local hospital.She chose to call him Hope because when she found him, in a villagenaked, alone and almost deadthey were all hoping that he would survive.

Sadly, this is not the first time that the rescue worker has witnessed such a horrid case. Weve seen both frightened, tortured and even dead children, Anja described in ablog post. Aco-founder ofAfrican Childrens Aid Education and Development Foundation(ACAEDF), Anja is working tohelp more children who have been neglected and even killed by their families after being accused of witchcraft.

Her center offers food, medical attention and education for children like Hope.


Anja Ringgren Loven/Facebook

Thankfully, after a daily blood transfusion, proper nourishment and medicine to remove the worms, Hope was able to make a remarkable recovery.


Anja Ringgren Loven/Facebook

This is what makes life so beautiful and valuable, and therefore I will let the pictures speak for themselves, wrote Anja.

Just two weeks after he was found, Hope looked like a brand new boy! His once somber look of desperation wasreplaced with a smile from ear to ear!


Anja Ringgren Loven/Facebook

Only twodays after Anja petitioned for help for Hope, over $1 million in donations poured in from strangers across the globe.


Anja Ringgren Loven/Facebook

With all the money, we can, besides giving Hope the very best treatment, now also build a doctor clinic on the new land and save many more children out of torture! she shared on Facebook.

Thanks to the love of strangers, Hope has been blessedbeyond measure and given a chance to live, laugh and play the way any kid should.

In the year since Hope’s story first went viral, the little tike is one of 35 childrenin an orphanage run by Anjaand her husband. Thanks to the thousands of people from around the world who donated money to the ACAEDF after learning Hope’s story, Anja was able to help open a doctors clinic to help more children who are accused and abandoned in the Nigerian region. The organization also bought a piece of land, called Land of Hope, which will be home to a new orphanage that protects other abandoned boys and girls.

This week, the healthy, happy three-year-oldheaded off to school for the first time.

Anja took to Facebook to reminisce on the day that she first met Hope just one year ago:

“On the 30 of January 2016 I went on a rescue mission with David Emmanuel Umem, Nsidibe Orok and our Nigerian team. A rescue mission that went viral, and today it’s exactly 1 year ago the world came to know a young little boy called Hope…This week Hope will start school.”

As you can see Hope is growing with speed and he is such a handsome, healthy and very happy young boy because of the tremendous love and care he receives every day from our staff and all our children, Anjasaid. Where there is love there is hope.

We cant turn around all the evil in the world, but one life at a time, each of us can make a profound difference. Who will be your Hope today?

1. Kim Kelly has the DGAF attitude you can only aspire to.

2. Kim knows how to get what she wants, and is happy to share her technique.

3. But she’s also capable of being really, surprisingly sweet.

4. Kim’s signature look is a blue jacket she shoplifted.

Crime is not COOL, per se, but. That’s a little cool, in high school terms.

5. Kim Kelly really knows how to deliver a threat.

6. Her menacing sneer is unparalleled, even among the meanest of mean girls.

7. If you try to stay in on a weekend night, Kim Kelly will have none of it. She will make you do something FUN.

8. She has the Holy Grail of hot high school boyfriends.

*tries and fails to whistle*

9. But Kim calls Daniel on his shenanigans, even though he has the chiseled face of a marble god.

10. Seriously. Kim does not have time for your attitude, Daniel Desario.

Even though you are so hot. So hot.

11. Basically Kim Kelly makes you believe in true, high school bad kids love.

12. Kim Kelly knows how to rock a bad girl braid.

13. And a variety of interesting early-80s hair twists!

So cool. Everyone else will be doing it.

14. She’s not *super* diplomatic, but you can always count on Kim to be honest.

15. She runs the school with co-bully Karen Scarfolli, but don’t misunderstand who’s in charge.

(Hi, Rashida Jones!)

16. If Karen Scarfolli steps out of line …

17. … Karen Scarfolli can be eliminated.

18. Kim will stand up to Karen on behalf of your adorable little brother.

It doesn’t *hurt* that Karen also sucked her boyfriend’s finger, obviously.

19. In the end, you know she’s always got your back.

And is game to lure you away from smart kids’ camp to a Grateful Dead tour.

The post Community Post: INTERVIEW: Hilary Kole Admits, She And Taylor Swift Are Alike appeared first on Relationship Guide To Everything.

You are donating some sales from your new single to the Sandy Hook Support Fund. Is this because you have a personal connection to someone hurt by the event?

No, I was just so touched and devastated by the tragedy, and I felt I wanted to let the families know in a very small way that we were thinking of them, standing with them and giving them all of our support. I know you can’t take away any of their pain, but I wanted to give something to them to represent how much we cared about what happened to those children.

Kole harks of a popular past musical sound.

Does most of jazz writing really come from romance?

I am not sure that jazz comes from romance at all. You hear Dizzy and Bird and the founders of jazz, and I don’t think they were inspired by romance or love. I think they were inspired by pain and freedom of expression and a whole mess of tough emotions that created this music: an original American art form. You hear their strife, their struggle and their creativity most of the time in the face of adversity. That is what I believe created jazz. Now, standards, that is another story. American standards are all romance and love- as they should be.

Can you write songs when you are single?

I find it hard to write songs when I am in a good relationship! When I am happy, I am not inspired as much as when I am crying in my beer. For me, it is a lot easier to write a sad song then a happy one. They are always more interesting. I am happy now, so my writing is suffering.

Do you always feel like the songs that you are singing when you perform them? I heard some artists says they do this subconsciously.

I try to be very careful about which songs I choose for which performances, and I always try to bring myself to the song, so when I perform a song, I feel it deeply. I may not have gone through exactly what the song is talking about, but everyone can relate to love, pain, excitement, etc. I try to find what the song means to me and share it with an audience.

You are now contractually emancipated from your ex, who served as your manager. Are you now your own manager?

I am managed by CAMI (Columbia Artists Management), but it is a very different relationship now than my previous management experience.

What can a singer do so his or her relationship with any type of manager or agent is going well?

I think it is very important to be honest with yourself and figure out what you need in your life. If you aren’t a person who can handle micro-management – the kind of manager who likes to tell you which dress to wear or how to wear your hair – then be clear about that. You need clear, professional boundaries, and I think it is also important to be pro-active with your career, whether or not you have management or not. It is still your career. In the end, you are responsible for where you are.

What do you think would have to happen for jazz to overtake the Top 40 charts?

That’s a hard question. Jazz was never really on the charts. It works best, most of the time, in small intimate venues. That is great for the audience and terrible for the performers, because making a living is so tough. I think more education is key – many young musicians don’t know anything about jazz, and I think if they did, they would incorporate it into their music, and then possibly have it evolve into something new and something that a new generation of listeners would love. Artists like Esperanza Spalding are doing that now. I am hopeful for the future, because jazz isn’t going anywhere. We just need to get more people into the clubs.

What does an artist have to do now that people download music, and often, steal it? How do you convince people your music is worth buying?

Call me crazy, but I think if people have an option to pay a dollar for a song or get it for free – but they are educated that if they steal it, the musicians that they love are paying the ultimate price and won’t be able to make more music for them – they would pay the dollar. Again, we aren’t talking about a lot of money. The way things are going now in jazz and any music that isn’t Top 40 is that record companies don’t have enough money to pay artists what it costs to even make records anymore. This can’t continue.

Where are you performing soon so people can see you?

I am working on my first record in two years now, which will be out in 2014, and I will be performing in August at the Cooperstown Music Festival and starting a Symphonic tour in the Fall. Check out HilaryKole.com for my schedule.

AMC

The first words Walter White said during Sunday’s series finale of AMC’s Breaking Bad were to himself. “Just get me home,” he growl-whispered, while trying to steal a snow-covered Volvo. “Just get me home.” At the end of the episode, Walt was dead. He went out an inventor — of a crazily effective artillery sprayer — and lay down for the last time in a chemistry lab. I would say he got his wish.

There will be people who don’t like Breaking Bad’s finale. I can already see some carping start amid the general praise on my Twitter feed. There will certainly be those who feel like the show shouldn’t have redeemed Walt (Bryan Cranston) — I can understand that. And then there is the too resolved criticism. Walt got revenge on a number of monsters (Uncle Jack and his crew, Todd, and Lydia Rodarte-Quayle); he tried to make amends for the vile, life-altering harm he had done to Skyler (Anna Gunn), Walt Jr./Flynn (RJ Mitte), and most of all, Jesse (Aaron Paul); and he got to die contentedly — not of lung cancer, and not in custody. It was tied up neatly, and there will be people who hate that.

Not me, though. I loved it. Breaking Bad’s creator Vince Gilligan sewed together loose threads I hadn’t even realized were loose. Revisiting the Schwartzes, for instance, which Gilligan did because a terminally ill teen superfan had said to him, “I want to know more about Gretchen and Elliott.” That’s a pretty tight story and well-thought-out world you’ve got there if an out-of-nowhere comment from a kid can send the conclusion of a five-season-long show in a new, inventive direction. I particularly liked the finale’s surprise about the Schwartzes: that the murderous look Walt directed their way in the penultimate episode didn’t end up meaning that he was setting off to kill them. Instead, he used them to achieve his goal to get his remaining millions to his family — and got to terrify them at the same time.

Of the shows we all talk about these days as new classics, there are few truly great series finales. The Shield has one; Six Feet Under had another. When I feel like weeping — it happens! — I go to this link to say good-bye to that show again. There are plenty of very good finales: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Wire, ER, and [insert your own here]. And we all know which ones caused people to freak out (Lost, The Sopranos, and, as of last week, Dexter).

Ending a television show is hard as hell to do. But if one new business model for television is binging, it’s actually imperative that the show end well. Or all of that Netflix/Amazon/iTunes action the show was seeing during its life will fall off a cliff. Who in their right mind would tell someone now to begin watching Dexter? Better never to start. With The Shield, on the other hand, you could easily and truthfully say, “It is terrific the entire time and the ending is perfect.”

I did see the word “perfect” quite a bit on Twitter describing Breaking Bad’s end. It’s too soon for me to say for myself. (But maybe soon.) I do feel, though, that as a set, these last eight episodes are the smartest, most thrilling sprint to a finish of any television show ever. This underdog of a crime drama got its just reward: tripling its viewership, an Emmy last Sunday, and a tonnage of hype, about both its high-quality content and its exploded growth.

It’s over now, and I’ll miss Breaking Bad’s ideas about American life almost as much as I’ll miss the actors and its stressful plot. Gilligan was able to use the show to touch on politics without employing a battering ram (something that can’t be said about The Wire). How the drug war converges in the Southwest and how ill-equipped the DEA is to handle it, was one of the show’s subtexts. Breaking Bad also represented a withering critique of health care and health insurance: Both Walt’s lung-cancer remission and Hank’s recovery from his gunshot wounds were paid for with cash, and wouldn’t even have existed to people like them if Walt weren’t making lumps of money. In its early episodes, the show indicted the public education system’s exhausted, embittered, underpaid teachers, exemplified by Walt, and its burnout students, such as Jesse, who left high school with one bit of knowledge: how to call authority figures “Mr.”

And then there are Breaking Bad’s thoughts on family. Walt’s touchstone excuse for every awful thing he ever did, which came to its apex in “Ozymandias,” the third-to-last episode, when he screamed, “We’re a family!” at his wife and son, who were recoiling from him in terror at the time. It was a decimation of the idea, which is actually pretty common, that doing immoral things can be justified if you are doing them for your family.

But Gilligan turned the “family” question on its head one last time in the finale. In Skyler and Walt’s final conversation, during which they were both quiet and reasonable, Walt seemed to be starting to say again that he had destroyed their lives because he wanted to help his family. Skyler couldn’t stand to hear it, and cut him off.

That’s not what Walt was going to say, though. Here’s what he wanted to say: “I did it for me. I liked it. I was good at it. And I was really — I was alive.”

Yes! Yes! On top of everything else, Breaking Bad was also about excellence and purity and the joy of being the best at something. As he headed toward death, Walt finally discovered something he was good at that had value; it made him feel alive. As Breaking Bad flew toward this ending, I never found myself worrying that it would do viewers wrong like so many shows have before.

Gilligan and Breaking Bad’s writers simply were good at it.
