    In this article CMCSA"Minions: The Rise of Gru" is the sequel to the 2015 film, "Minions," and spin-off/prequel to the main "Despicable Me" film series.UniversalFamilies have gone bananas for "Minions: The Rise of Gru." Over the weekend, the Universal and Illumination animated feature tallied more than $108 million in ticket sales. The fifth film in the Despicable Me franchise generated an additional $93.7 million from international markets, bringing its estimated opening weekend haul to $202 million globally. "With the incredible success of 'Minions,' the notion that family audiences were avoiding movie theaters due to Covid concerns can be shelved," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore. Box office analysts had wondered if this segment of moviegoers was still avoiding cinemas after Disney and Pixar's "Lightyear" took in just $51 million during its domestic debut last month, below expectations of $70 million and $85 million. It was unclear if tough box office competition led to "Lightyear's" less than stellar debut or if consumers were confused about the film's release. After all, there has not been a theatrical release of a...
    The House of Representatives on Wednesday night passed a bill to provide $28million in emergency funding to address the baby formula crisis after parents blasted President Joe Biden for taking too long to invoke the Defense Production Act. Republicans said the legislation was covering up for the administration's 'ineptitude' during the crisis and is only 'throwing money at the FDA' rather than fixing the problem.  The House passed two bills. The first was a measure approved on a 414-9 vote that will allow low-income women to purchase more baby formula through the federal Women, Infant and Children (WIC) program. The second, the Infant Formula Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2022, provides the funding as parents across America struggle to find supplies to feed their children and was passed on a 231-192 vote. Their fates are uncertain in the Senate, but Democratic Majority Leader has said he will try and pass the bills by unanimous consent - even though it could be blocked by one Senator.  Nancy Pelosi celebrated the votes, but Republican House Whip Steve Scalise urged his colleagues to vote no because the...
    Brooklyn Beckham is understood to have signed a prenuptial agreement with his heiress bride-to-be Nicola Peltz. The £380 million fortune of 23-year-old Brooklyn's parents, David and Victoria, is dwarfed by the estimated £1.3 billion wealth of Miss Peltz's financier father Nelson. News of the prenup comes as preparations for Saturday's £3 million ceremony and party at the Peltz family mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, gather pace. David and Victoria have already jetted to Miami together with family members, including daughter Harper and Victoria's niece Libby Adams. Despite her future mother-in-law's knowledge of fashion, Miss Peltz, 27, recruited Leslie Fremar – a stylist who has worked with Hollywood A-listers Demi Moore and Charlize Theron – to help choose her dress. The pair travelled to the headquarters of Valentino in Rome and Miss Peltz has confirmed her gown has been designed by the fashion house's Pierpaolo Piccioli.

    The adult children of a murdered Utah Shell executive are suing a Brazilian state-controlled oil company for 'orchestrating' the killing of their parents' 20 years ago, after their father allegedly uncovered a multi-million dollar corruption scheme in Rio de Janeiro.  Logan and Wesley Staheli were only 10 and 13 at the time - and were sleeping just down the hall from where the bedroom where the bloody scene occurred at their home in Rio. They were later accused by Brazilian authorities of using a toy hatchet to kill their parents, Todd and Michelle. The siblings claim government-owned Petroleo Brasileiro - known as Petrobras -planned their parents' 2003 murder to cover up a multi-million dollar corruption scheme Todd had been investigating.  Todd, an executive for a Shell Oil Company subsidiary, had traveled to Brazil to determine why the company was losing millions.  He found that 'hundreds of millions of dollars were being paid in kickbacks and bribes involving Petrobras,' the lawsuit claims.  The complaint also accused Rio de Janeiro law enforcement of interrogating the children without a legal guardian present and...

    More On: COVID vaccine Pfizer to ship fewer vials of COVID vaccine to US after extra doses discovered De Blasio pleads with Biden for quick action on COVID vaccine shortage ‘I gave up’: NYC seniors desperate to get COVID vax rip registration system Biden’s 1M shots-a-day COVID-19 ‘goal’ was already reached — by Trump I’m 56 years old, in good health, and not a health-care or essential worker. But on Jan. 2, I received my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. I was over the moon with joy — and relief. It took less than 30 minutes to go to the clinic, get my shot, and return home. Thankfully, my life partner, Gidon, who is 85, received his vaccine two days earlier.  Of course, I couldn’t resist posting our vaccination selfies on social media, but an instant later, I felt terribly guilty. At the time, many of my friends and even my elderly parents had no idea when they would receive their vaccinations. I am an American living in Israel, you see. The country with the most efficient COVID-19...
    An escape to the country might mean a little thatched cottage with roses over the door for most of us, but Pippa Middleton could soon be making a much grander move out of the city – to a 72-acre estate. Pippa and hedge-fund billionaire husband James Matthews are said to be close to buying the land which, handily, is just a stone’s throw from her parents’ £5 million mansion in idyllic Bucklebury, Berkshire. The couple currently live in a £17 million six-bedroom home in London. The huge countryside site they are said to have their eye on is known as Bucklebury Farm Park and operates as a safari park and petting zoo. Originally on sale at £1.5 million, agents Knight Frank have confirmed it is under offer, but refused to comment further citing client confidentiality. A spokesman for James, 45, and Pippa, 37 – younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge – described the potential purchase as no more than a ‘business opportunity’ for Mr Matthews, denying the couple had any plans to move there. Pippa and hedge-fund billionaire...
    New York (CNN Business)The new school year is just around the corner and parents and teachers are fretting about returning to the classroom during the pandemic. Economists are worried, too, because a lack of childcare could damage America's recovery.Single parents, parents with young children and parents who can't work from home are the groups most at risk to stop working entirely because they have no child care, said Goldman Sachs (GS) economists David Choi and Joseph Briggs in a note to clients on Tuesday.Since May, some 7 million people per week have not worked because they didn't have access to childcare, according to data from the Census Household Pulse Survey, a number that accounts for about 14% of virus-related reasons for missing working.Nearly a third of the pre-pandemic US labor force has kids at home, and about 15% of the work force falls into at least two of those three risk categories above, Choi and Briggs said. That totals about 24 million people.Historically, childcare policies have affected people's participation in the labor force and, unfortunately, women are more affected by...
    Joe Biden is rolling out the third part of his plan that makes use of the coronavirus pandemic to retool the economy - this time giving a boost to caregivers.  Biden will speak Tuesday afternoon in New Castle, Delaware and roll out a $775 billion plan spent to create 3 million new caregiver jobs, with the aim of making childcare cheaper and keeping elderly or disabled family members at or closer to home.    'Joe Biden has taken care of aging parents, and he's been a single parent. Biden knows how hard it is to raise a family and to take care of a sick family member,' a Biden campaign press release said. 'And, he knows how hard it is for millions of Americans who are just trying to make ends meet.' Joe Biden is set to roll out a plan Tuesday focused on producing 3 million more caregiver jobs to help American families with childcare and keeping elderly or disabled family members at or close to home  The plan spends the money over a decade and is paid for by rolling...
    Donald Trump's and Mitch McConnell's insistence that schools must be open in the fall, never mind the coronavirus pandemic that shows no signs of abating, is absolutely using children for their reelection and the pretense that everything is back to normal now. The only way Trump has any hope of winning, or McConnell keeping the Senate is with an economic miracle that is definitely not coming. But if they can try to force it by having kids in school and parents back in the job, that's what they'll do. But it's not just the kids being held out as sacrificial lambs. It's a lot of their parents and especially their grandparents. The Kaiser Family Foundation warned this week that there are 3.3 million people age 65 and older living with school-aged children in the United State, 3.3 million people who are at high risk of having serious complications if they are infected with the COVID-19.  What's more, older people of color are disproportionately more likely to live with a child, significantly so. "Nearly one in five (19%) Asian and Native...
