The Chicago Bears are working on a deal to make Ryan Poles, the Kansas City Chiefs executive director of player personnel, their new general manager, a league source confirmed. Poles was at Halas Hall for his second interview Tuesday, and by noon, NFL Network and ESPN reported the Bears were finalizing a contract with the man who will replace Ryan Pace.

It's a new year, which means another new class of composers and performers worth keeping an ear on for 2022. This sophomore class is a mix of happy discoveries and several dozen enthusiastic nominations from last year's inaugural list of "21 for '21" artists, which included such breakthrough creators as Randall Goosby, Angélica Negrón and Christopher Cerrone. This year's selection represents a diverse variety of composers, performers and artists hitting their stride with work that resonates with the right now. - Carlos Simon The trope of the cloistered composer is a tried and true archetype - the solitary soul flanked by stacks of scores in the dark study of a secluded home, squinting at notation while sitting at a keyboard dusted with spent erasers. As a cliche, it's got its charms. But Carlos Simon, the Kennedy Center's composer-in-residence, just hits different. Simon, 35, strikes me as the very model of a modern major composer: an artist whose windows are thrown wide open to … [Read more...] about 22 for ’22: Composers and performers to watch this year
LONDON — The choker, a neck-hugging jewelry style, seems to be riding a new wave of popularity. Its appearance on women’s, men’s and couture runways and in fashion-world look books was featured in the 2021 annual roundup by Tagwalk , a search engine that tracks fashion trends. It noted that the use of chokers had increased 25.6 percent compared with the previous year. And the style figured prominently in the spring 2022 fine jewelry and costume jewelry collections from Chanel, Dior, Coach and others.

It also landed five other nominations and made Oscar history when Ruth E. Carter and Hannah Beachler won in their respective categories of costume design and production design. This year, “ Spider-Man : No Way Home,” which just swung back to the top of the box office is leading the conversation once again for all the reasons Owen Gleiberman mentioned here, showing why a superhero movie should be considered worthy of cracking the best picture race — especially as the number of nominees has expanded to 10 possible slots.

George Conway is confident that Merrick Garland will indict Donald Trump’s former chief of staff Mark Meadows, and hopefully the ex-president, too. While some political players and pundits, like The New Abnormal host Molly Jong-Fast and former guest Preet Bharara , are worried an indictment from Garland’s Department of Justice will never come, the Washington Post contributing columnist and husband of Kellyanne Conway believes Garland is simply taking the slow-and-steady approach.

The latest national child welfare report shows an increase in the number of Black children who died, even though fewer abuse-related fatalities were investigated in the yearlong period that included the first several months of the pandemic. The findings were released in the 2020 Child Maltreatment Report, issued Friday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The report covers data from October 2019 to September 2020 and only partially reflects how COVID-19 disrupted the work of child welfare. “Disparities that were present before the pandemic were intensified, and COVID-19 exposed gaps in our human services delivery system,” Aysha E. Schomburg, of the department's Children’s Bureau, said in a statement. The report noted an overall 10% drop in the number of child protective services cases handled by states in the early days of the pandemic. That’s a troubling trend that the Associated Press first reported last year with an analysis of state child welfare data. The … [Read more...] about Child abuse report: Deaths of Black children up in pandemic
