CULTURE & ARTS 01/02/2019 07:36 pm ET Carvens Lissaint, once homeless, now stars in one of the biggest hits in Broadway musical history. It hasn't insulated him from racism. By Laura Bassett Carvens Lissaint is tired of having to prove he belongs in his own building. He’s a 6 foot 3, 29-year-old black man, raised in Harlem, and he lives in a new upscale glass residential tower in downtown Brooklyn called the Eagle. He moved there in September, the same month he landed a starring role in “Hamilton” on Broadway, one of the biggest hits in musical theater history. But again and again — five times in all, by his count — the rotating cast of security desk attendants treats him like an outsider. “I come here with some Trader Joe’s groceries, about to cook my wife some dinner, and they’re like, ‘I’m sorry, deliveries are downstairs. You have to call up,’” he said. “They just see a black guy … [Read more...] about You Can Star In ‘Hamilton’ And Still Fear For Your Life As A Black Man

Inmate No. 15000-030 is released into the frigid January morning at 8:46, a gray custodial suit of sweatpants and long-sleeved thermal clinging to his immense frame, a bushy salt-and-pepper beard wrapping around his face, a guard escorting him with a high-powered rifle slung over his right shoulder. Most politicians would appear hopelessly—dangerously—misplaced in a federal prison. Kent Sorenson is not most politicians. Standing over six feet tall and weighing every bit of 270 pounds, with 11 tattoos and a cleanshaven head, Sorenson is probably the only state senator to have ever been mistaken for a member of the Aryan Brotherhood. That happened during his first stop on the penal turnpike, the Metropolitan Correctional Center (“The MCC”) in Chicago, an administrative facility with maximum-security lodging where the “fish” was viewed warily by fellow inmates.

One high-volume third-party fix shop speaking under condition of anonymity told AppleInsider on Monday that about one in three screen repairs on the iPhone 8 family were having the problem. Apple first tied hardware and software together with the launch of Touch ID on the iPhone 5S.According to Vice, the iOS 11.3 update that Apple released in March is now killing touchscreen functionality in devices that were previously repaired by third parties.This has been confirmed by the fix community and also the folks at Engadget who tested it out themselves, where they swapped displays between brand new iPhones only to have the ambient light sensor to stop working after. Third-party repairers quickly found out that replacing a broken fingerprint sensor with a working unit would disable Touch ID. Apple recently started shipping these machines (around 400 last year) to some of the 4,800 authorized service providers around the world.
