A Crisis Expert Explains Why Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Did a “Wonderful Job” in Their New Documentary

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex Visit South Africa

POOLGETTY IMAGES
  • In the new documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, which aired on ITV in the UK last week, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle gave strikingly candid interviews.
  • The Duke and Duchess of Sussex opened up everything from the rumors of a Fab Four feud (Harry admitted that he and William are “on different paths”) to their ongoing battle with British tabloids.
  • Crisis expert and 5WPR CEO Ronn Torossian weighed in on the doc, which he says did a “wonderful job” of softening the couple’s images and making them more appealing to everyday people.

Last weekend, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle gave some of the most strikingly candid interviews we’ve ever seen from members of the British royal family in their documentary, Harry & Meghan: An African Journey.

The documentary, which premiered on the UK on ITV, came amid a string of troubles with the media for the couple. Not only have the Duke and Duchess faced criticism over some of their decisions (particularly surrounding their demands for privacy), but the royal couple are currently suing British tabloids over invasive reporting tactics and inaccurate stories that have been published about them.

So, will Harry and Meghan’s documentary help their case against the media? Ronn Torossian, crisis expert and CEO of 5WPR, weighed in.

When it comes to public opinion about the Sussexes, Torossian believes the doc (and Harry and Meghan’s deeply honest interviews) hit all the right notes.

“This documentary does a wonderful job of showing the public that while Meghan and Harry are public figures, they are people too,” he says. “Between Harry opening up about how he is still affected by his mother’s death every day and Meghan discussing the challenges of being a new mother in the spotlight, the video softened their images and made them more appealing to the everyday person.”

When it comes to the couple’s relationship with the press—particularly with the British tabloids—Torossian’s optimism is decidedly more cautious.

“However, whether this will help change how they are portrayed in the press is a different story,” he adds. “American media and social media have had a sympathetic reaction, but the British tabloids have not really softened their coverage, and have never really warmed up to Meghan as a member of the royal family. Only time will tell if this documentary has the intended effect, and brings both Meghan and Harry out back up to the standing of proper royals.”

The Time Has Come To End The Reign Of Language Schools!

A revolutionary alternative to language learning has been created. MUAMA Enence is a portable voice translating device which allows independent and efficient studying in the comfort of your own home.

The Time Has Come To End The Reign Of Language Schools! 11

Will this small device replace language learning institutions? Tutors and polyglots from all over the world are certain that it will.

Ever since progressive scientists from Japan had created and tested MUAMA Enence, language learning had a massive breakthrough. Thousands of people worldwide had already taken this opportunity and couldn’t be more satisfied Even those, who always believed that they were too lazy, had no talent or “too old for this”, found themselves immersed in their studies. How’s that possible?

“Language courses are a waste of time and money!”

This opinion was shared by people, who decided to try MUAMA Enence. They believe that traditional methods used by schools are boring, inefficient, and too expensive. Let’s explore these statements in more detail:

  1. Outdated teaching methods. Language courses focus on reading and writing instead of effective communication. Memorising grammar rules and sentence structure from textbooks requires a lot of repetition and starts to get boring. Scientists have proven long ago that boredom interferes with the ability to memorise which makes learning even more difficult and, of course, boring.
  2. Time and labour. An average language course is usually twice a week and lasts for around 1,5 hours. 6 semesters of such classes make up a total of 360 hours. Only 20% of the tutor’s attention goes to a single person. The remaining 80% goes to other students. Let’s not forget to mention that it’s only classwork. Many more hours add up between that. Travel, homework (which doesn’t teach to understand or speak) and constant repetition.
  3. Learning in a group. Students have to listen to each other’s mistakes and bad accents and form bad speaking habits as a result. No wonder feeling ashamed and being afraid of making mistakes is so common among novice learners. This lack of confidence in one’s speaking skills is often the cause of giving up on learning altogether.
  4. MASSIVE expenses. One semester (only 5 months!) of such “learning” can cost from $500 to $1500 and that’s not a one-off payment. To reach the level of proper communication, one needs at least 6 semesters $3000-$9000 of your income! More expenses pile up on textbooks and other required learning materials.

These four points perfectly illustrate the harsh reality of taking language learning classes. The odds of such a big investment (mental, physical and financial) bringing a desired outcome are so small, that, honestly, it’s not worth the risk. Especially now, when you have technologies by your side.

The Time Has Come To End The Reign Of Language Schools! 12

What makes MUAMA Enence so different?

MUAMA Enence is the total opposite of traditional learning. First of all, it‘s interactive. The brain is constantly stimulated by audio input which makes the process much more enjoyable, sparks enthusiasm and, most importantly, eliminates boredom – the root cause of difficulties. Another huge advantage is that you get to practice speech and pronunciation like never before – if MUAMA Enence understands you, anyone will! Furthermore, listening to translations allows your brain to take mental notes of how a sentence should be constructed correctly. This way the whole process becomes more natural and intuitive. That’s how babies learn, and we all know how strong those early acquired skills can be!

In other words, MUAMA Enence makes learning:

  1. FASTER. This interactive method speeds up memorising.
  2. EASIER. No courses, minimal expenses, no stress. You can learn wherever and whenever you want.
  3. MORE EFFICIENT. By developing natural intuition and understanding of a language, it is unlikely that those skills will be forgotten. You will be able to express yourself freely and with confidence.
  4. CHEAPER Pay once, get a textbook from a library and you’re all set!

Among other features, MUAMA Enence offers:

  1. Real time two-way voice translations.
  2. More than 40 interchangeable languages
  3. Amazing sound & recording quality
  4. High accuracy
  5. Long battery life
  6. Light and portable design

See How Your Favorite Ranks in Our Great Candy Corn Taste Off

Think all candy corn tastes the same? To be blunt, you’re wrong. While all candy corn may be throat-searingly sweet (a positive or negative quality, depending on who you ask) the variations in its flavor, texture, and appearance became abundantly clear after a blind tasting of three brands’ takes on the seasonal treat. Curious as to whether Walgreens, Brach’s, or Jelly Belly reigns supreme in the great candy corn taste-off? Keep reading to see how they’re ranked, from worst to best.

3. Walgreens Candy Corn

Grainy, overly firm, and crayon-like in flavor and texture, Walgreens Candy Corn ($2) was nearly unanimously ranked lowest in our taste-off. Some tasters halfheartedly praised its butterscotch flavor, but it was abundantly clear that this take on the classic Halloween candy was more trick than treat.

2. Jelly Belly Candy Corn

If we ate only with our eyes, Jelly Belly Candy Corn ($8 for three bags) would be the clear winner of the bunch thanks to its glossy finish and vibrant color scheme. Sadly, it didn’t quite live up to its enticing appearance. Although some tasters ranked it highest, thanks to its prominent vanilla flavor and smooth texture, most griped that it didn’t taste quite like candy corn.

1. Brach’s Candy Corn

Brach’s Candy Corn ($3) was the clear winner. Despite its ho-hum looks (many of the pieces were scuffed up, broken, or uneven in color) and crumbly texture, it won many tasters over with its honeyed flavor. Sure, familiarity bias was probably at play. But sometimes, a classic is hard to beat.

Essex lorry deaths: Anguish in Vietnam for families of missing

Families in Vietnam are waiting to find out if their loved ones were among 39 people found dead inside a lorry trailer in England.

The police investigation continues, following the discovery of the trailer in Grays, Essex, last Wednesday.

Maurice Robinson, 25, has been charged with the manslaughter of 31 men and eight women.

He has also been charged with people trafficking, immigration and money laundering offences, Essex Police said.

Mr Robinson, of Laurel Drive, Craigavon, Northern Ireland, is due before Chelmsford Magistrates Court on Monday.

In Vietnam, relatives of Bui Thi Nhung, 19, expressed fears she may be among the dead.

The teenager is thought to be the youngest of those who died.

Since the bodies were discovered on Wednesday, several families in Vietnam have expressed concerns over missing relatives.

Among them are Pham Thi Tra My, 26, who last messaged her family late on Tuesday, and two men – Nguyen Dinh Luong, 20, and Nguyen Dinh Tu.

A representative of VietHome – a website for Vietnamese people in the UK – said it had passed on the pictures of almost 20 people who have been reported missing to detectives.

Police said they were investigating a “wider conspiracy” after reports that the lorry may have been part of a convoy of three carrying around 100 people.

Another four people have been held by officers.

Selena Gomez Gets Candid About Love, Her New Album & Her ‘Worst Moments’ Being the ‘Biggest Blessing’

Selena Gomez visits The SiriusXM Hollywood Studios at SiriusXM Studios on Oct. 23, 2019 in Los Angeles.

Selena Gomez sat down for a lengthy interview with Zach Sang in which she spoke openly about love, her duo of new songs “Lose You to Love Me” and “Look at Her Now” and the full album that’s to come.

“Lose You to Love Me” and “Look at Her Now,” both released within the past week (with videos that were impressively shot on an iPhone), are “actually just kind of summing up one part of me,” Gomez explained, revealing that the rest of her next full-length — which will be her first album since 2015’s Revival — “is just me having a really good time, talking about real things and vulnerability and strength.”

Gomez said she released the emotional, introspective “Lose You to Love Me” first because “I think it would have been stupid if I didn’t acknowledge my feelings. It would be … inauthentic is a better word. Because I feel like I’ve always been who I’ve been. I’ve never really hidden anything.”

Of “Look at Her Now,” she said: “I’m talking to every girl that’s felt what I felt. You know that moment when you just kind of reach that point and you just want to be like, ‘Actually, I’m actually good. And I feel good.’ That’s what it felt like for me.”

The release plan was partly for herself, she said, and partly to show her supporters she’s in a good place.

“I thought it was a perfect way to kind of wrap up a chapter, and I wanted it to show the vulnerability of experiencing the pain of heartbreak and then stepping into this whole other journey, which is mine … I did it for me, but I also did it for my fans.”

While Gomez didn’t spill too many details about what fans will hear on the rest of the album, she did mention one more track inspired by personal growth.

“There’s a song that I basically said I can’t let myself let me down,” she said. “I wanted to kind of interpret that as every time I feel bad, I always end up going into this spiral. And I just feed it. And I’ve learned over the years to take a step back from that and try to rewire your thoughts so that you’re more focused on what it’s gonna turn into. One of the worst moments of my life ended up being the biggest blessing of my life.”

During the 40-plus-minute chat, Gomez (without naming any names from her personal life) talked about love and relationships, describing her past experience with young love and her current “super single” situation — and how it all makes an appearance in her art.

On being in love for the first time, she said: “You’re in a phase where you experience love for the first time and I think that that can be a little toxic … You have this codependency that you think is love and then you have this addiction to the passion and the frustration with each other that you think, ‘Oh, that’s love’ … I believed that for a long time.”

But, as she told Sang, “I’ve been super, super single for two years and I want to know what that love will look like next for me. I want it to be real, and I don’t want it to be codependent or messy or lack of communication. I think when you get older you find people that are actually right for you, that are actually on the same wavelength.”

Halsey and Evan Peters Couple Up at the AHS 100th Episode Celebration

Spot on!

Halsey and Evan Peters are making their romance red carpet official, after attending the AHS 100th Episode Celebration on Saturday night. Making their outing even more fun, the two certainly got into the Halloween spirit and donned a couple’s costume for the fanciful affair.

The dynamic duo dressed as none other than Sonny and Cher. Name a more iconic couple… we’ll wait.

However, the 25-year-old singer and American Horror Story actor didn’t just wear any Sonny and Cher ensemble. They totally stole the show at the star-studded event wearing a rainbow-colored polka dot get-up.

It was spot on.

For the special occasion, Halsey slipped into an asymmetrical dress that hugged her curves and showed off her tattoos. She also threw on dramatic false lashes and a long, straight black wig. The 32-year-old actor also went all out for his costume and rocked a matching polka dot blouse with a beige-colored suit.

He went the extra mile and even rocked a shaggy black wig and long mustache that matched the late singer’s.

And while Halsey and Evan have yet to talk about their romance publicly, they didn’t mind showing some PDA for the night-time affair. According to an insider, the dynamic duo “have been attached to each other all night.”

“They have been holding hands and kissing throughout the night,” the eyewitness shared, adding, “Halsey had her arms around Evan’s neck and was looking up into his eyes, while he had his hand on around her waist.”

They also were seen walking hand-in-hand on Friday night, after leaving the “Nightmare” singer’s Almost Famous Halloween party. They also decided to wear coordinating costumes for the fun-filled bash.

The duo dressed as Juggalos, which is the nickname for fans of the hip-hop group Insane Clown Posse. “resident goths,” Halsey captioned her Instagram post, where she posed with the AHS actor.

While the two have started to go more public with their brooding romance, they first fueled relationship rumors earlier this month. “Halsey has always been a huge fan of Evan’s,” a source told E! News at the time. “A friend connected them and they had also been chatting over social media before decidin

Marine combat veteran who served in Iraq facing deportation to El Salvador

Supporters of a Marine combat veteran who served in Iraq are calling on the California governor to help stop his imminent deportation to El Salvador, a country he left at 3 years old.

Jose Segovia Benitez, 38, served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1999-2004 and was deployed to Iraq, receiving multiple awards and decorations during his service, according to Marine and military records. His rib cage is tattooed with large Statue of Liberty.

“He is a soldier who put his life on the line to defend his country,” his mother, Martha Garcia, said in Spanish. “But when he returned from the war, he came back with problems.”

His supporters said that when Segovia Benitez returned, he suffered from PTSD and a traumatic brain injury. He began self-medicating with alcohol and ran into trouble with the law, they said.

While he previously had legal status, he was ordered to be removed from the country last year after serving several years in prison for drug and domestic violence-related convictions, according to immigration authorities.

His family, advocates and lawyers say that while they do not excuse his past behavior, Segovia Benitez did not get the treatment he needed for his PTSD and brain injury, noting he served both his country and his sentence. They say he does not deserve to be deported to an extremely dangerous country he has never known after his years of service.

“It’s just cruel,” Garcia said.

Segovia Benitez, who has lived in the U.S. since he was 3 and grew up in Long Beach, California, decided to serve his country right out of high school, his mother said.

Basty Garcia, his sister, said her brother enlisted because “he was patriotic and believed in this country.”

Immigration authorities began his deportation process Tuesday, but he was subsequently taken off a plane bound for El Salvador and is now being detained in Arizona, according to his family and advocates.

Basty Garcia said it remained unclear exactly what happened and why.

An advocate for Segovia Benitez appealed in August to California Gov. Gavin Newsom to pardon his convictions, Basty Garcia said. Attorneys for Segovia Benitez are now also seeking a pardon from Newsom.

Attorney Thomas Sanchez said Segovia Benitez was represented by a public defender in the drug and domestic violence cases and should have been charged with misdemeanors instead of felonies.

“So, when we looked at the case we said if we can get a pardon for him for the aggravated felonies, which should have been misdemeanors in the first place, then he can become a citizen,” Sanchez said.

Sanchez said the assault with a deadly weapon charge stemmed from Segovia Benitez having a screwdriver in his pocket that he did not use.

Carlos Luna, president of Green Card Veterans, said Segovia Benitez’s case highlights what can happen when a veteran facing the criminal justice system lacks resources.

“If he would have had the resources to have legal representation back then, he would not be facing this right now,” said Luna, who has been helping with Segovia Benitez’s case, “Even further, if he would have had the medical resources available that he needed, then he may not have ever ended up in a courtroom.”

Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in a statement Friday that Segovia Benitez was ordered removed to El Salvador by an immigration judge in October 2018 and has “an extensive criminal history.”

His convictions include corporal injury to a spouse, for which he received an eight-year sentence, assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment, narcotics possession, conspiracy to commit a crime and driving under the influence, ICE said. He remains in ICE custody pending removal, the agency said.

ICE said Segovia Benitez was in custody “pending removal” but did not indicate where he was being held.

Segovia Benitez is also part of a lawsuit filed in August with 14 other ICE detainees, claiming they were subjected to “horrific” and “inhumane” conditions during their detention.

His sister said that during his time in detention, Segovia Benitez has helped other detainees and is “really loved.”

“He’s very helpful and obviously cares about people,” she said.

Jeff Merrick, a retired master sergeant with the Air Force, said deporting veterans like Segovia Benitez after they served time was a “total disgrace.”

“They got into trouble, yes, they had issues, but they served their time, and instead of like other citizens, where they’re released back into the community, where they can have a life again, they’re committed to a life term of exile,” said Merrick, who is a board member with the group Military Families Speak Out.

Segovia Benitez’s mother said her son would not be able to get the treatment he needs in El Salvador and called Newsom to “please help us.”

“This is the country he belongs in, the country he fought for,” she said.
