Anna Camp's acting debut came with a Streisand surprise
The pilot for Reinventing The Wheelers, which never made it to air, was memorable, because Camp's dad was portrayed by the diva's real-life husband, James Brolin."I played Alyssa Milano's little sister and we shot it in Charleston, South Carolina," Anna tells SAG Conversations. "No one ever saw it but I got to meet Barbra Streisand because of it."I remember we were going out to eat and there were whispers, 'Is Barbra coming? Is Barbra coming?' She came and it was epic!

Assessing the October surprise in the 2020 Presidential Election
The “October Surprise,” according to Urban Dictionary, is “an unexpected, dramatic last-minute event which potentially alters the outcome of an election.” Accepting this definition at face value, the past week in America has checked all the boxes.Since 1980, many dramatic events have happened in October. Sometimes, it was a personal scandal. In 2012, it was Hurricane Sandy. Last week – on October 2, shortly after midnight – US President Donald Trump tweeted: “Tonight, the First Lady and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get t...

French Muslims are now being called 'separatists'… well that’s a surprise!
In 2005, the chorus of the French rapper A.L.I.’s song ‘Tolérance zéro’ started like this: ‘je suis ni intégré, ni intégriste, je reste juste intègre’. With the evident loss of the play on words, this would translate as ‘I am neither integrated, nor am I a fundamentalist, I just remain myself’. A.L.I. stands for Afrique, Loi suprême, Islam (Africa, Supreme law, Islam). He is a practising Muslim – his beard and the salient prostration mark on his forehead make him a ‘visible’ one, at that. The lament contained in his verse is his and his French co-religionaries’ cross to bear: how to be a pract...
