Free beer and popcorn — I must admit, that’s what lured me out on a recent rainy evening in Cambridge to see Seth Rogen and a screening of "The Interview."
One day before the Sony Pictures hack, Rogen presided over a Harvard event on the intersection of humor and politics. He joked about the initial response from North Korea when the trailer came out and expressed hope the release would occur without incident. "I would hope they would have better things to do,'' he said.
Former state representative Peter Beck of Mason will go to trial March 23 on dozens of counts involving theft and fraud.
The trial is scheduled for four weeks in the Hamilton County Common Pleas courtroom of Judge John West.
Beck, who resigned from the Ohio House earlier this month, was indicted on sixteen counts in 2013. A second indictment this year added fifty-three more counts. But Beck's lawyers say 15 of them were duplicates of the original indictment.
Just a few streets away from the blue-doored houses of Sousse’s old town, one alley stands derelict and abandoned. Patches of wild grass have grown in amid the trash and rubble. Graffiti painted on the walls reads “Go away.”
The message was directed at Rathia, and the 90 or so other women working that alley.
“We literally had to run for our lives,” says Rathia, as she remembers the day her neighborhood, and business, went up in flames. “They came here and they just torched the places. We had to run out or we would have been burnt.”
The December issue of Cincinnati Magazine includes the editor's list of the Best of the City for 2014. From pony keg to olive bar, mountain bike trail to lawnmower repair, rainy day fishing spot to deli-made dip, the list covers food, the arts, exercise, shopping and just downright fun and unusual things you can find in our fair city. You might agree or disagree with some of their picks, and chances are you probably never gave a thought to some of their categories (best source for Japanese office supplies?), but you have to give them credit for doing the legwork, scouring our town to come up with what they consider the very best in Cincinnati. Here to share some of the things and places they say are the best, and how they went about finding them, are Cincinnati Magazine Deputy Editor Amanda Boyd Walters, Senior Editor RJ Smith, and Digital Media Editor Amy Brownlee.
In Coming Out to Play, Rogers takes readers on his incredible journey from terrified teenager to a openly gay professional soccer player for the L.A. Galaxy, who has embraced his new identity as a role model and champion for those still struggling with the secrets that keep them from living their dreams.
