Hollywood’s Richest Actors.

Robert Massimi
You Won’t Believe How Much Game of Thrones Stars Earn per Episode
So many TV shows exist, but only a few of them have managed to become popular across the globe. Who doesn’t love watching Friends, The Big Bang Theory, or The Simpsons? And, the most iconic shows in the world feature some of the highest paid actors who earn millions per episode.

Syndication has been extremely good to actors over the years, with many never having to work again if they don’t want to. If you consider the Seinfeld cast, only Dreyfus has worked consistently, while the others have struggled to be actors of any signifigance.
Jason Alexander, who I saw recently in The Portuguese Kid was aweful in it. He has tried sitcoms but none of which lasted too long.

One of such shows which had the fans go crazy since 2011 is Game of Thrones. Classified as a fantasy drama, the show is based on books written by George R.R. Martin. The characters were brought to life thanks to the amazing portrayal of the cast. The actors made sure that their audience enjoys the show and as a reward, they got to take home a pretty penny for playing some of the most iconic characters of all time.

Kit Harington as Jon Snow
Jon Snow is one of the leading characters and he appears at the very beginning of the show. Jon’s character earned the title of one of the “finest creations” by the author from The New York Times. He has also been at the center of many storylines and has intrigued all the viewers with the topic of his parentage.

Jon Snow seems to be an independent character, but he couldn’t have made it without the allies he made over the years as well as getting close to a character or two. Kit Harington, the man who portrays Jon Snow, has become a favorite actor for many all around the world. Thanks to this role, he got the opportunity to appear in several theater shows and movies. The actor is also one of the top paid GoT actors and gets to take home $500,000 for every episode.

Natalie Dormer as Margaery Tyrell – $100,000 – $200,000
Fans get to meet Margaery Tyrell in season two. This lovely character, sadly, made her departure in season six after she was killed in an explosion

When it comes to the novels, Margaery was a minor character. But, thanks to Natalie’s incredible acting skills, the show producers decided to make her one of the main characters. Similarly to Sophie Turner, Dormer earns between $100,000 and $200,000 per episode.

Aidan Gillen as Littlefinger
Petyr Baelish, better known as Littlefinger, becomes an immediate hit with the fans when he is introduced in the first season of the show. However, this doesn’t last for too long. Baelish is sly and he does his best to turn many of the other characters against one another. He is also prone to murdering all those who get in his way.

Many fans were relieved when Baelish got what he deserved. In season seven, Sansa and Arya joined forces to end his life and put a stop to his deceits. It takes true skill and talent to make the rest of the world hate you. And, that is exactly what enabled Aidan Gillen to earn between $100,000 and $200,000 per episode.

Conleth Hill as Lord Varys
Lord Varys, portrayed by Conleth Hill, might have been one of the minor and not so relevant characters in season one. However, it didn’t take long for his storylines to take off and have Hill promoted to one of the leading cast members.

Lord Varys is mostly seen serving others during the show, but many fans believe that there could be some major storyline development for this character in the final season of the GoT. Well, we will find out soon enough. Regardless of this, Hill still gets to take home between $100,000 to $200,000 for every episode he appears in.

Rory McCann as The Hound
The Hound, portrayed by Rory McCann, is one of the most feared characters in the show. He is known as one of the most skilled fighters. And, if we take into consideration his relationship with The Mountain, this character is definitely not the one to mess around with.

Many of us believed The Hound’s last appearance would be at the end of season four. Luckily, the producers granted The Hound a comeback in season six. In return, this enabled Rory McCann to earn an additional $100,000 to $200,000 per episode.

Iain Glen as Jorah Mormont
At the beginning of the show, Jorah was a spy who worked for Lord Varys. However, he met Daenerys and fell in love with her. Ever since than, Jorah became her loyal servant. Besides saving her life, Jorah also developed strong feelings and affection for Daenerys.

His unfortunate love story and his attempts to fight off an illness called greyscale, made Iain Glen one of the TV show favorites. As a reward, the actor earns $100,000 to $200,000 per episode.

Alfie Allen as Theon Greyjoy
Theon Greyjoy is one of the most prominent characters in the Game of Thrones books. George R. R. Martin often uses Greyjoy to tell his stories. The character is just as prominent in the TV series as he is in the books. At one point, Theon is initially taken hostage and spends the next few seasons being tortured and captured by other characters along the way.

Alfie Allen is the British actor who plays Theon. However, the fact that he is a member of the main cast was not enough to enable Allen to climb out of the “Tier C” characters. That is why his wage is $10,000 per episode.

Isaac Hempstead Wright as Bran Stark
At first it seemed that Bran Stark’s role would end in season one after he catches Jaime and Cersei who were romantically involved. As a result, Bran was pushed out of the window. At first it seemed that he would die, but Bran was only left crippled and soon became the Three-Eyed Raven.

Bran’s supernatural powers made him one of the crucial figures in the fight against the White Walkers and the Night King. But, despite Bran’s importance, his character is not as prominent as some others. That is why Isaac Hempstead Wright earns $10,000 an episode for his performance.

Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark
At the beginning of the show, it seemed that Sansa Stark would get to live happily ever after once she found her Prince Charming, Joffrey Baratheon. She was mesmerized by Joffrey after meeting him, but soon she learned what he was really like when Joffrey ordered her father’s execution right in front of her eyes.

While her role life might be full of heartache, actress Sophie Turner is quite lucky. Reportedly, she takes home between $100,000 and $200,000 for every episode she appears in. The reason why she earns less than the previously mentioned actors is because she play a “Tier B” character.

John Bradley as Samwell Tarly
Samwell Tarly is not one of those feisty characters. Still, he is forced to join the Night’s Watch after his father threatens him. Even though everyone made fun of him, Samwell proved that he is one of the characters who could help the Seven Kingdoms win the war thanks to his intelligence.

Samwell could have been in the line to become one of the lords of the Seven Kingdoms. However, his father’s disapproval of his lack of skills on the battlefield is what makes Sam go and train with the others. We don’t know whether John Bradley is as intelligent as Sam or a skilled warrior, but one thing is sure – his acting skills earn him $10,000 per episode.

Maisie Williams as Arya Stark
Arya Stark is Sansa and Bran’s sister and Jon Snow’s half sister. Playing a silly child at the beginning of the show, Arya’s character became incredibly popular in season two. She got to work The character became hugely popular with fans in season two when she got to plot against Charles Dance, who plays Tywin Lannister, and the entire Lannister family.

Maisie’s acting skills and the importance of her character got many wondering why she’s still among the “Tier B” actors earning $100,000 to $200,000 per episode. Could it be because of her age?

Liam Cunningham as Davos Seaworth
There are so many minor characters in Game of Thrones, and Davos Seaworth is perhaps the most popular among them. Also known as the Onion Knight, Davos started as an advisor to Stannis Baraheon. When Stannis died, this pirate-turned-knight decided to switch sides and support on Snow as Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch at first and then as the King in the North.

Being at Jon Snow’s side meant that Davos had to pledge allegiance to Daenerys as well. Seemingly a minor character, Liam Cunningham’s pay reflects Davos’s true importance. The actor earns $300,000 for every episode he appears in.

Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister
When it comes to wealth, it seems that Lena Headey was the perfect choice for the role of Cersei Lannister. Cersei becane the Queen of Seven Kingdoms once she married Robert Baratheon. Even though her father arranged this marriage, that didn’t stop her from having an incestuous relationship with her brother Jaime. And, Cersei’s wealth doesn’t end with the show since Lena earns $500,000 per episode

It seems as though love really does know no bounds after all. In fact, Cersei and Jaime havethree children together. All the ambition and power she portrays on screen granted Lena a nomination for a number of awards over the years. The actress won four Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe. Besides Game of Thrones, Lena also appeared in many movies, including the horror The Purge, and animated shows such as Trollhunters.

Nathalie Emmanuel as Missandei – $100,000
Missandei was introduced in season three and became an incredibly popular character among the Game of Thrones fans. What made Missandei an interesting character is the romantic subplot with Grey Worm. Oh, did we also mention that she is incrediblly intelligente and serves as a translator thanks to her mastery of languages.

When Daenerys freed the people of Astapor, Missandei joined her side and hasn’t left her since. Being Daenerys’s trusted advisor enabled Nathalie Emmanuel to appear in 34 episodes. And, Emmanuel is rewarded with $100,000 per episode for doing such a fine job of bringing Missandei to life.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister
Jaime has been one of the main characters since season one. His affair with his twin sister, Cersei, made some of the fans hate him from the very start. Jaime pushed Bran Stark out of a window when Bran caught the pair having an intercourse. Bran managed to survive but he had no recollection of the event.

The actor behind the character and his storylines is the popular Danish star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Nikolaj has been in the acting industry for many years before he gota part in Game of Thrones. Portraying Jaime brought Nikolaj worldwide fame. He is one of the five cast members who receives $500,000 per episode. However, rumor has it that his pay could be bumped up to $1 million as the last episodes are set to last much longer than the previous ones.

Natalia Tena as Osha
Natalia Tena is a very talented actress. She was best known for her appearance in the Harry Potter series. And, Game of Thrones certainly added to her fame. Tena played Osha, a wildling woman who ended up traveling with and protecting Bran Stark.

Unfortunately, it is unknown how much exactly was Tena paid for her time on Game of Thrones. However, we do know that thanks to her performances, she was able to ack up a decent net worth. In 2017, the Tena’s net worth was about $5 million.

Gwendoline Christie as Brienne of Tarth
Brienne of Tarth appears for the first time in the show in season two. After two seasons, she was bumped up to one of the main cast members – and Christie has remained there ever since.

Unfortunately, we didn’t get to she Gwendoline become one of the “Tier A” members of the cast, despite the significant role Brienne has in the show. Reportedly, everyone in the show is about to receive a pay rise before the final seasone and Gwendoline will get to earn between $100,000 and $200,000 per episode.

Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister
Tyrion Lannister has been with us since the first episode. As a member of the House of Lannister, Tyrion got to enjoy all the riches that come with being related to the wealthiest families in the land of Westeros. But, wealth and family name do not prevent the prejudice Tyrion receives for being a dwarf. Even though he might seem as careless and reckless at first, this character won the hearts of many fans with his loveable personality

Before starring in Game of Thrones, Peter Dinklage appeared in plenty of movies and TV shows. But portraying Tyrion brought him a whole new level of fame. And, Dinklage was one of the five actors who managed to negotiate a pay rise. Instead of $300,000, Dinklage will earn $500,000 per episode in the final season of the show.

Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen
Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons, was a weak and gullible character at the beginning of the show. But, as time went by her character and her importance in the show grew. Daenerys is portrayed by the lovely British actress Emilia Clark. Thanks to her brilliant acting skills, Clarke has received many nominations and awards.

As a reward for playing one of the most iconic characters of the series, Emilia also gets to take home $500,000 per episode throughout season eight, the final season of the show. Before the pay rise, Emilia was earning a staggering $300,000.

Net Worth: Peter Dinklage – $16M
No, this is not a mistake. We know that we already mentioned Peter Dinklage. But, instead of discussing the actors’ salaries, now it’s time to switch to their net worth. Peter Dinklage was not only nominated for multiple Primetime Emmy awards for his role as Tyrion Lannister, but he also managed to win a few. He even got himself a Golden Globe.

The actor has been active for years and he appeared in almost all genres, from comedies such as Elf to fantasy shows like GoT. His acting career earned Dinklage a net worth of $16 million.

Net Worth: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau – $16M
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is a Danish-born actor. He’s been acting in the US since 2001. His first appearance was in the Black Hawk Down. However, the greatest role he played is definitely that of Jaime Lannister.

At the times when he was taking a break from Game of Thrones, Coster-Waldau got to appear in a few movies as well, including the Gods of Egypt (2016), Small Crimes (2017), and Shot Caller (2017). Thanks to these big screen roles and the role of Jaime Lannister, Coster-Waldau’s net worth in 2018 was $16 million.

Net Worth: Emilia Clarke – $13M
Emilia Clarke is one of the most talented and gorgeous actresses ever. Her role in Game of Thrones enabled Clarke to star in the well-known movie Me Before You. However, before Daenerys, Clarke was relatively unknown in the acting world.

Thanks to her portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen, Clarke is now one of the most popular actresses in Hollywood. Whether it’s her breath-taking smile or her acting skills, everyone seems to want to work with her. That’s why she has managed to garner a net worth of $13 million.

Kit Harington – total net worth of $12M
Kit Harrington is also one of the actors whose career got a boost after appearing in Game of Thrones. He plays Jon Snow, as if we need to remind you… However, before getting the role of a lifetime in this fantasy adventure TV show, Kit practically didn’t have any screen acting credits.

Now, he has a fan base who can’t imagine living without him. Even though Harrington’s time in the spotlight may have started not so long ago, he has managed to earn about $12 million.

Net Worth: Lena Headey – $9M
Cersei Lannister is one of, if not even the most hated character on Game of Thrones. However, this only proves the amazing acting skills of the English actress Lena Headey.

Heade made a name for herself after appearing in two fantasy movies, The Brothers Grimm and 300. She continued to appear on the big screen and was also a part of movies such as Dredd and The Purge. That is why her fans were shocked when Lena stated that she had only $5 in her bank, after her messy divorce in 2013. But, an amazing actress that she is, Headey managed to bounce back and now has a net worth of $9 million.

Net Worth: Sophie Turner – $5M
Some may know Sophie Turner as the girlfrend of Joe Jonas. But, this lady has managed to make the name for herself all on her own.

Aside from portraying Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones, Sophie Turner will also have her own X-Men movie coming out in 2019. She will play the role of Jean Grey in the movie Dark Phoenix. At the age of 23, this young actress already has a net worth of $5 million.

Net Worth: Maisie Williams – $6M
Maisie Williams is yet another young but very talented actresses in Hollywood. We have no doubts that this talented actress will definitely be able to find work easily when her time on Game of Thrones comes to an end after the series finale in 2019.

She is probably going to be one of the most sought after young actresses as soon as her schedule opens up a bit. Thanks to playing Arya Stark on GoT, Maisie Williams is currently worth about $6 million.

Net Worth: Gwendoline Christie – $3M
When she was younger, this six-foot-two English actress had a dream of becoming a gymnast. Unfortunately, a back injury made her retire. That is when Gwendoline Christie decided to go for her backup career – acting. And, we’re pretty sure she has no regrets.

Apart from playing Brienne of Tarth, Christie was also lucky enough to land a role in possibly the only franchise bigger than Game of Thrones. We’re talking about Star Wars. Christie will play Captain Phasma in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. Since she’s relatively new in the acting world, Christie managed to earn only about $3 million by now.

Net Worth: Aidan Gillen – $8M
One of the veterans on Game of Thrones, Aidan Gillen convincingly portrays the sly Littlefinger. He is constantly coming up with schemes and plots until Sansa and Arya Stark finally find a way to bring him down.

Gillen was incredibly sad to leave the show he has been starring in for six years. But, this Irish actor has found some other things to do. He got a role in the sci-fi series Project Blue Book and is a part of four other projects which are already n various stages of production. We’re quite sure that all of these new roles will add to his net worth of $8 million.

Net Worth: Natalie Dormer – $6M
Aside from playing Margaery Tyrell on Game of Thrones, Natalie Dormer also appeared in other TV shows and movies as well. Dormer played Cressida in the last two Hunger Games movies, more precisely The Mockingjay (Part 1 and Part 2).

Despite these two popular roles, Dormer also has some minor roles behind her. But, we’re quite sure that GoT has opened many doors for this young actress. Thanks to all the roles she played, Dormer has earned around $6 million and probably has her sights set on much higher numbers in the future.

Net Worth: Jason Momoa – $14M
Jason Momoa appeared on Game of Thrones for a brief period of time. The Hawaiian-born actor played the fearsome Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo in only ten episodes. However, his performance was certainly memorable.

Momoa also appeared in several other TV shows. For example, he appeared in the last few seasons of the original Baywatch. But, Game of Thrones made Momoa incredibly popular. He got to play Aquaman in Justice League and then in his own standalone movie. All of these amazing roles enabled Momoa to earn $14 million.

Net Worth: Charles Dance – $5M
Charles Dance has definitely seen more time onscreen than majority of the other GOT actors. He has been starring in movies and TV shows since the mid-1970s.

However, the role of Tywin Lannister is probably his best-known role. Dance also appeared in The Imitation Game, Gosford Park, and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. After all these years of acting, Dance has been able to make his net worth climb to $5 million. We’re pretty sure that his appearance in Game of Thrones contributed a lot.

Hong Kong Protestors Keep Coming.

Hong Kong police fire tear gas as protesters vandalise legislature

* Police fire tear gas to try to clear protesters from legislature

* Anger over extradition bill coincides with handover rally

* Protests pose big challenge for Chinese leader Xi Jinping

* Major roads in heart of financial centre paralysed

By John Ruwitch and Joyce Zhou

HONG KONG, July 1 (Reuters) – Hong Kong police fired tear gas to try to disperse hundreds of protesters, some of whom stormed the legislature, destroyed pictures and daubed walls with graffiti, on the anniversary of the city’s 1997 return to Chinese rule on Monday.

Police arrived by bus and ran into position as about a thousand protesters gathered around the Legislative Council building in the heart of the former British colony’s financial district.

Police fired several rounds of tear gas as protesters held up umbrellas to protect themselves or fled. Plumes of smoke billowed across major thoroughfares and in between some of the world’s tallest skyscrapers.

Protesters had carried road signs, others corrugated iron sheets and pieces of scaffolding, as they barged into the council building. Some sat at legislators’ desks, checking their phones, while others scrawled “anti-extradition” on chamber walls.

Other graffiti called for Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam to step down, while pictures of some lawmakers were defaced.

“HK Is Not China” was painted in black on a white pillar.

The government called for an immediate end to the violence, saying it had stopped all work on extradition bill amendments and that the legislation would automatically lapse in July next year.

A small group of mostly students wearing hard hats and masks had used a metal trolley, poles and scaffolding to charge again and again at the compound’s reinforced glass doors, which eventually gave.

The Legislative Council Secretariat released a statement cancelling business for Tuesday. The central government offices said they would close on Tuesday “owing to security consideration”, while all guided tours to the Legislative Council complex were suspended until further notice.

Riot police in helmets and carrying batons earlier fired pepper spray as the standoff continued into the sweltering heat of the evening. Some demonstrators removed steel bars that were reinforcing parts of the council building.

Banners hanging over flyovers at the protest site read: “Free Hong Kong.”

The protesters, some with cling film wrapped around their arms to protect them from tear gas, once again paralysed parts of the Asian financial hub as they occupied roads after blocking them off with metal barriers.

Lam suspended the extradition bill on June 15 after some of the largest and most violent protests in the city in decades, but stopped short of protesters’ demands to scrap it.

It was not immediately clear if the announcement that it would lapse would ease the tension.

The Beijing-backed leader is now clinging on to her job at a time of an unprecedented backlash against the government that poses the greatest popular challenge to Chinese leader Xi Jinping since he came to power in 2012.

“The kind of deafness that I see in the government this time around despite these protests is really worrying. The complete disregard for the will of the people is what alarms me,” said Steve, a British lawyer who has worked in Hong Kong for 30 years.

“If this bill is not completely scrapped, I will have no choice but to leave my home, Hong Kong.”

Opponents of the extradition bill, which would allow people to be sent to mainland China for trial in courts controlled by the Communist Party, fear it is a threat to Hong Kong’s much-cherished rule of law.

Hong Kong returned to China under a “one country, two systems” formula that allows freedoms not enjoyed in mainland China, including freedom to protest and an independent judiciary.

Beijing denies interfering but, for many Hong Kong residents, the extradition bill is the latest step in a relentless march towards mainland control.

China has been angered by criticism from Western capitals, including Washington and London, about the legislation. Beijing said on Monday that Britain had no responsibility for Hong Kong any more and was opposed to its “gesticulating” about the territory.

The European Union on Monday called for restraint and dialogue to find a way forward.

THOUSANDS RALLY

Tens of thousands marched in temperatures of around 33 degrees Celsius (91.4°F) from Victoria Park in an annual rally. Many clapped as protesters held up a poster of Lam inside a bamboo cage. Organisers said 550,000 turned out. Police said there were 190,000 at their peak.

More than a million people have taken to the streets at times over the past three weeks to vent their anger.

A tired-looking Lam appeared in public for the first time in nearly two weeks, before the storming of the legislature, flanked by her husband and former Hong Kong leader Tung Chee-hwa.

“The incident that happened in recent months has led to controversies and disputes between the public and the government,” she said. “This has made me fully realise that I, as a politician, have to remind myself all the time of the need to grasp public sentiment accurately.”

Pro-democracy lawmakers and the protest organiser said Lam has ignored the demands of the people and pushed youngsters towards desperation, despite pledging to listen to people’s demands.

PROTEST MOVEMENT REINVIGORATED

Beijing’s grip over Hong Kong has intensified markedly since Xi took power and after pro-democracy street protests that gripped the city in 2014 but failed to wrestle concessions from China.

Tensions spiralled on June 12 when police fired rubber bullets and tear gas at protesters near the heart of the city.

The uproar has reignited a protest movement that had lost steam after the failed 2014 demonstrations that led to the arrests of hundreds.

The turmoil comes at a delicate time for Beijing, which is grappling with a trade dispute with the United States, a faltering economy and tensions in the South China Sea.

The extradition bill has also spooked some Hong Kong tycoons into starting to move their personal wealth offshore, according to financial advisers familiar with the details.

Suicide Rates At Highest Since WWII.

Robert Massimi.
Why is the suicide rate so high? Could it be social media’s fault? Do we live in pressure pact times? Is it because people feel that they can’t get out from under? Are meds to blame,or we over medicated?
Since 2006, wiyh the opioid crisis and a new generation of people, added with the social media sites, more younger people are committing suicide. For all the questions asked above,they all come into play as a problem for young people now a day.
From constantly on cell phones to unlimited games,kids today spend less time outdoors, interacting with other people in person. Younger people are more inclined to be alone today than ever before. All of this, coupled with prescription drugs are major factors for this jump in suicides.
It is a known fact that people need to be outdoors to have a good balance of mental health. Younger people spend less time getting exercise than ever before.

New data shows depth of U.S. mental health crisis
U.S. suicide rates are at the highest level since World War II, according to a new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report, per Bloomberg’s Cynthia Koons.

By the numbers: From 2000 to 2006, the suicide rate in the U.S. increased by an average of about 1% a year. From 2006 through 2016, it increased by 2% a year. There were 1.4 million suicide attempts in 2017 and 47,000 deaths.

Why it matters: Despite an improvement of material well-being, emotional distress in the U.S. has reached “crisis levels,” according to the CDC.

Koons reports that the national mental health epidemic stems from various causes, including “genetic, social, and environmental factors.”
It’s reached the scale of “the global financial crisis” — and yet there is no groundwork in policy, manpower or in institutions to address it.

Sarah Sanders is likely to hit the speaking circuit and write a book after leaving the White House on Friday, and she’ll move to Arkansas in August as the prelude to a possible 2022 run for governor, sources tell Axios.

Details: We hear the book will be billed as an account of her life in politics and experience inside the Trump administration, which she sees as very positive. Sanders plans to relax with her family in July, and she will help with Trump’s re-election campaign.

The U.S. Border Patrol apprehended roughly 87,000 unauthorized immigrants in the month of June, a decline compared to the steep figures reported over the last three months, according to leaked internal Department of Homeland Security data.

Why it matters: The drop enables acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan to tout that the June 7 deal the U.S. struck with Mexico to stem the flow of migration is working — the kind of cover he needs to fend off attacks from prominent Trump allies.

President Trump’s re-election campaign is developing an aggressive, state-by-state plan to mobilize even more evangelical voters than supported him last time, campaign officials tell Axios.

Why it matters: Trump captured 81% of the evangelical vote in 2016, a huge accomplishment considering they make up roughly a quarter of the electorate and play a prominent role in swing states like Florida.

Report: U.S. is underestimating Putin’s “grand strategy” for Russian dominance

A new report prepared for the Pentagon suggests that the U.S. is underestimating the scale of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “grand strategy” for dominance on the world stage, and that inaction in the face of Russia’s malign influence activities poses a serious threat to U.S. national security.

“Contrary to conventional analysis, after two decades under Vladimir Putin, Russia represents an ideological challenge to the West, not just a political and military rivalry. Although NATO continues to possess impressive overmatch against Moscow, that edge is dwindling, and Western vulnerabilities in certain military areas are alarming. Moreover, the unwillingness of Western experts and governments to confront the ideological — as well as political and military — aspects of our rivalry with Putinism means that the threat of significant armed conflict is rising.”

Libra, the wildly ambitious and probably doomed Facebook-backed cryptocurrency, is innovative in many different ways. But there’s one part of it that’s deeply familiar — the way in which it sells itself as a way of bringing millions of people into the global financial system.

The big question: Can the private sector, and technology companies in particular, bring critical financial services to those who have been excluded from the global financial system?

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told “Face the Nation” Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) will be “a force to be reckoned with” following her strong performance in the first Democratic debate this week, a clip released by CBS Saturday shows.

Details: In his interview with CBS’ Margaret Brennan, Graham defended former Vice President Joe Biden after Harris criticized him during the debate over his relationship with segregationists in the Senate, who had helped him pass an anti-busing amendment. “Anybody that knows Joe Biden, there’s not a racist bone in his body,” Graham said.

.@LindseyGrahamSC tells @margbrennan that @JoeBiden needs to “up his game” in the next debate: “And one thing I’ll say about @KamalaHarris, and I said this before, she’s got game. She is very talented, she’s very smart, and she’ll be a force to be reckoned with.” #campaign2020 pic.twitter.com/oU0nkxNk4v

2020 Democrats defend Kamala Harris as false claims on her race resurface

Several Democratic presidential candidates defended fellow 2020 contender Sen. Kamala Harris on Saturday against false online accusations about her race and U.S. citizenship — with many calling the attacks racist.

The big picture: A social media researcher, cited in the NYT and BuzzFeed, aggregated at least 12 tweets questioning Harris’ race during the first Democratic primary debate, saying “it has all the signs of being a coordinated/artificial operation.” Gary Wilmot, a self-described “birther” conspiracy theorist, made accusations about Harris’ race in 2017 — sentiments shared by the Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi website.

‘Rock of Ages’
by ROBERT MASSIMI 43 minutes ago in POP CULTURE
Long Live Rock and Roll.

Robert Massimi.

After a long run on Broadway, Rock of Ages returns to the New World Stages. If you love rock comedies with a lot of humor then Rock of Ages is for you.

The show is a typical boy meets girl, boy loses girl then gets her back, however, everything in between is fantastic. The singing, dancing, costumes, and sets are first rate. A smaller venue like New World makes the show that much more enjoyable. The silly fun on stage works that much better.

Set on the Sunset Strip when Ronald Reagan was president, we return to Los Angeles, California where some rock singers have already made it here, and some are trying to. The Bourbon Room is the location where a talented singer, Drew (CJ Eldred), is a bar back when not trying to break in to the music industry.

The entire evening we are guided through by the show’s narrator, Lonny (Mitchell Jarvis). Jarvis is both humorous and absurd in a great way. Jarvis draws the most laughs, and commands the role as he did as well on Broadway. Campy and rough around the edges, he takes the audience into rock and roll euphoria.

Drew and Sherrie (Kristen Scott) are playing footsie with one another. They both fall instantly in love with one another, yet neither one wants to take the initiative. Sherrie wants to be a Hollywood star, much to the chagrin of her parents. She follows her dream to the Sunset Strip and meets Drew. After a few bad decisions on her part, she eventually meets back up with Drew, and all is well in rock and roll-ville.

On a gorgeous set (reminiscent of New York City’s Hard Rock Cafe), the audience is treated to a fantastic band that blurts out one great tune after another. The club’s owner, Dennis, had his 15 minutes of fame working with Foghat. He is a hard living, warm, and friendly person who loves the chicks.

What makes Rock of Ages so successful is its lighting. Jason Lyons puts on a clinic in lighting design. From the multi lighting, to the strobes, lighting is always the drummer in a musical, and Lyons brings forth the energy to this great show. Songs like “Here I Go Again” are carnival-like, and the actors brought down the house to this great song. In “Oh Sherrie” Lyons worked the lights like a true maestro, rocking the song.

Gregory Gale’s costume nailed the Sunset Strip fashion of the times. Bar maid’s leaving little to the imagination, the rockers outfits, and the businessman who wants to rule the world. In Drew becoming a boy band star, his ridiculous costume was entertaining.

What would a musical be without great choreography? Kelly Devine was masterful in “Rock.” The singers rocked out to some pretty nifty dancing, Divine made the entire show sexy.

Under Kristin Hanggi’s direction, the entire performance worked like a great rock band does. The humorous moments work as well as the poignant ones. Hanggi has all the actors in line, tight and focused to the performance at hand. Not an easy show to put forth, but the actors make it look easy.

All of the actors were great in Rock of Ages, from Stacee Jaxx (PJ Griffith), the rock star of Arsenal, to Franz (Dave Biren), the son of the ruthless businessman. The banter between Dennis (Matt Ban) and Lonny made for great folly. Ban was exceptional in his roll as club owner, and a bit unorthodox on how he went through his roll. His great comedic timing was a joy for the audience.

Rock of Ages has something for everyone. Songs that took us back to the end of great rock and roll. The performers belt these songs out like the bands that originally sang them, only we got to see great dancing as well. The actors were relentless in their efforts to bring a real quality show. This great musical will go down in the annals as one of the true greats.

Apple Moves Mac Pro Production to China
The $6,000 desktop computer had been the company’s only major device assembled in the U.S.

Apple Inc. AAPL -0.91% is manufacturing its new Mac Pro computer in China, according to people familiar with its plans, shifting abroad production of what had been its only major device assembled in the U.S. as trade tensions escalate between the Trump administration and Beijing.

The tech giant has tapped Taiwanese contractor Quanta Computer Inc. to manufacture the $6,000 desktop computer and is ramping up production at a factory near Shanghai, the people said. Apple can save on shipping costs for components given the proximity of many of its suppliers to Shanghai, rather than having to supply a factory in the U.S.

While the Mac Pro isn’t one of Apple’s higher-volume products, the decision on where to make it carries outsize significance. Apple’s reliance on factories in China to manufacture its products has been an issue for the company, especially under President Trump, who has pressured Apple and other companies to make more in the U.S.

Where does it make the most sense for Apple to assemble its products? Join the conversation below.

With the previous Mac Pro model, released in 2013, Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook trumpeted plans to build it in the U.S. Apple invested $100 million in tooling and other equipment for a plant in Austin, Texas, run by contract manufacturer Flex Ltd. Each computer was stamped “Assembled in the USA.”

Flex and Quanta declined to comment. An Apple spokesman said the new Mac Pro is designed and engineered in the U.S. and includes U.S.-made components. Apple said it supports manufacturing in 30 U.S. states and spent $60 billion last year with more than 9,000 U.S. suppliers.

“Final assembly is only one part of the manufacturing process,” the spokesman said, adding that the company’s investments support two million American jobs. The Mac Pro is Apple’s most powerful computer, used primarily by a relatively small number of professionals working in industries such as film and videogames.

President Trump has pressured Apple to make some iPhones, Macs or iPads in the U.S. since the 2016 presidential campaign. He told The Wall Street Journal in 2017 that Mr. Cook promised to build “three big plants, beautiful plants” in the U.S., a claim Apple declined to comment on at the time. Last year, as his administration imposed tariffs on imports from China, Mr. Trump said the only way to ensure prices for Apple goods don’t increase would be to make products in the U.S.

Apple in the past two years has announced a second campus in Austin to handle customer support and operations, and reported more than $500 million in new contracts with U.S. component suppliers that manufacture at home. But Apple hasn’t disclosed any plans to build new manufacturing facilities in the U.S.

Making the new Mac Pro in China isn’t likely to affect many workers in Texas because demand for the old model fizzled years ago. The Flex workforce had shifted to refurbishing already-made computers, former Flex employees said. The Flex plant continues to make products for HP Inc. and other companies, they said.

Mr. Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping, looking to revive trade talks, are scheduled to meet for lunch Saturday at the Group of 20 meeting in Osaka, Japan.

Last year, the Trump administration spared product categories including Apple’s smartwatch and AirPods wireless earbuds from an initial round of duties. But the administration’s proposal to impose additional tariffs of 25% covering $300 billion in imports from China would affect all of Apple’s major devices, including the Mac, iPhone and iPad.

While it shifts Mac Pro production to China, Apple more broadly is considering moving some of its assembly work out of China because of concerns about U.S. tariffs, The Wall Street Journal reported last week. One of the people familiar with Apple’s plans said that same consideration could extend to the Mac Pro, with Ireland as an alternate possible site.

The Mac Pro’s history reflects the hurdles to doing assembly in the U.S. The previous Mac Pro model—known as the “trash can” because of its stumpy, cylindrical appearance—was the first computer Apple had made in the U.S. in about a decade. Mr. Cook, who had engineered Apple’s outsourcing to China, announced plans to build the product in the U.S. in late 2012, when Apple was facing major scrutiny over its reliance on manufacturers in China and those contractors’ treatment of workers.

Flex secured a designation as a Texas Enterprise Zone project at the time of the initiative, entitling it to $250,000 in annual tax breaks in support of $15 million in equipment purchases and 500 jobs with an average annual wage of $30,276, according to the state. The designation expires this month.

Almost immediately, Apple ran into challenges at the Flex plant in Austin, former Apple employees said.

More than 80% of the workers across three assembly lines were contract employees paid minimum wage for eight-hour workdays, Alan Hanrahan, a former Apple manufacturing supervisor, said in an interview with the Journal two years ago. As soon as their shift ended, many headed out, he said—even if the lines were still running. Then production would stop, only to resume when the next shift was in place, he said.

As demand for the Mac Pro tapered off, Flex began laying people off, several former Flex employees said. By last year, they were down to a skeleton crew working just a quarter of one of the assembly lines and refurbishing Mac Pros, said Jeff Gruger, a former vice president of product at Flex.

“They learned it’s very difficult to manufacture in America,” Mr. Hanrahan said of Apple in the 2017 interview.

Apple this year overhauled the Mac Pro to give it more power and a radically different silver, rectangular design. The design could be one of the last developed under the leadership of design chief Jony Ive, who Apple announced Thursday will leave the company later this year.

Manufacturing labor costs in China, though rising, still remain much lower than in the U.S., said Paul Gagnon, a consumer-electronics analyst with IHS Markit.

Quanta has made MacBooks and Apple’s smartwatch for years. In addition to four facilities in China, the Taiwan-based contractor it has a small facility in Fremont, Calif., where it works on custom desktops, according to one of the people familiar with its plans.

Jimmy Carter Should Not Criticize Any President.

Robert Massimi.
Jimmy Carter may be the worst president in my lifetime. Either Obama or Carter was the worst.Like Obama,the world ran roughshod over Carter. Thanks to Carter, we still have the Iranian problem.
Jimmy Carter was a buffoon in the white house. For Carter to criticize any president is the height of hypocrisy.We had horrible gas lines with him, we had a president who gave up on us. Carter was so over his head as president it was an embarrassment to our nation. Remember the intrest rates when he was president? It was because inflation was horrific.

Jimmy Carter Says Trump is an Illegitimate President: ‘He Didn’t Actually Win the Election’

Former President Jimmy Carter said he believes President Donald Trump’s election was illegitimate and “he didn’t actually win the election in 2016.”

Carter was speaking at at a Carter Center conference on human rights in Virginia with author Jon Meacham when he made the remarks. (First reported by USA Today’s Susan Page.)

“I think the interference, though not yet quantified, should be fully investigated and would show that Trump didn’t actually win the election in 2016, he lost the election,” Carter said.

“He was put into office because the Russians interfered,” he said. Carter was then asked if that meant he believed Trump was illegitimate.

“Based on what I said, which I can’t retract,” Carter responded, prompting laughter from the audience.

Carter has spoken with Trump in the past and attended Trump’s inauguration. Earlier this year, Carter says he offered Trump advice on dealing with China after Trump called him to talk about the country.

Ensemble Studio Theatre ‘s One-Act Plays.

Robert Massimi.

The Ensemble Studio Theatre (EST), has been putting on one act plays since 1977. Inspired by the likes of Tennessee Williams and Eugene O’Neill, new and established writers are brought together on one stage. A favorite of both audiences and actors alike, EST has three series this year. The one acts are a biennial event and has this year has some fantastic shorts.

Founded in 1968 by Curt Dempster, EST found a permanent home at 549 west 52nd st in 1972. Dempster and fellow artist like Jon Voight, Jerry Zaks and Danny De Vito had a mission to nurture innovative new theater throughout New York City. EST have given some of the biggest names in theater today there first shot at stage acting.

The Series C was performed last evening with some good performances, a few good shorts, and a few shorts that had good directing. New York City over the last few decades has had various shorts (59 East 59, aThe Fringe Festivals), but it is EST that has held the benchmark as the most recognizable theater when it comes to One -Acts.

EST had five one-acts last evening: i believe in a republic in which money has a great deal to say (all small letters). This One -act and The Tourist, were probably the two best of the evening. Well acted and directed with excellent costumes, the short was both funny and absurd. Taking place in Newport Rhode Island during the salad days of a bygone era, we watch four women run through a very good skit.

The next performance was Mandarin Duck, a short that really didn’t have any great dept to it. This one only scratched the surface, in the end, it was a big let down. Two woman talking about nothing of great importance and very little meaning. The audience waited for something more, but it never materialized.

The Tourists was probably the most entertaining One- Act of the evening. Set in Paris, France, two best friends made a road trip before Deb was to be married. The two banter about where to go next. Deb is fixated on a hotel employee named Di Mitri, who is young and handsome. The three performers give us a thrill of raucous comedy. The interaction and direction really clicks with The Tourists. Two local yocals from Tennessee trying to blend in Paris was well written.

Jesus In Manhattan tries to play a gender role reversal and does not go over very well. It tries to get political with immigration, sexual harassment and pits the woman as the dominant sex, as the writer tries to show us what it would be like if the roles were reversed. The biggest cast of the night blends well because of good direction, but the writing leaves us wanting more.

The last performance was Fall. This was based on a mother who is incapacitated and needs the help of a nurse from Haiti. The nurse and the mother’s hardened daughter fight like cats and dogs. As the play develops we find that the daughter is the way she is because of her mother. Never receiving any love, the daughter is an un caring, un loving person. We come to find out that the nurse and the daughter, as well as the mother have a lot in common, they all come from a particular inward hell.

Fall was fair to midland. It never gies deep enough, the conversations never really challenge the audience. We are never moved toward the daughters feelings. Even at the end when we should have been moved, we weren’t. Better direction and a tightening of the script could make this a much better play.

The Ensemble Studio Theatre’s Marathon Of One-Act Plays runs until June 29th. Always fun and as always entertaining. Some of the one acts are terrific and some are works in progress. The plays move quickly so if you do not like one, it’s time is limited.
