‘Like a Boss,’ ‘Wonder Woman 1984’

Wisconsin was all over the movies, big screen and small, in 2020 — even when it wasn’t really Wisconsin. 

Jon Stewart came to Wisconsin to research his purple-state comedy “Irresistible,” about out-of-town political operatives turning a fictitious Wisconsin town’s mayoral race into an all-out war. But the movie, which debuted this summer, was shot entirely in … Georgia. 

“Irresistible,” starring Steve Carell and Rose Byrne, played in only a handful of theaters when it debuted this summer, smack in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic that left a lot of screens dark. But, in what was a sign of things to come, it also was available on demand — a release strategy that we’ll see more of going into 2021.

In fact, the “biggest” movie opening of the pandemic was a movie available both in theaters and on streaming: “Wonder Woman 1984,” which pulled in an estimated $16.7 million Christmas

She was in her fourth year of university, living in Yemen, a newlywed and soon to be pregnant when she found out she won the US Diversity Visa Lottery, also known as “The Green Card Lottery.” It seemed Al-Doais had beaten the odds — 12.4 million applicants applied for a chance at the up to 50,000 visas that could be issued for 2017.

But in 2017, then-President Donald Trump took a series of actions aimed at barring individuals from Muslim-majority countries from coming to the United States. The one that was ultimately allowed to take effect — Presidential Proclamation 9645 — placed varying levels of restrictions on foreign nationals from eight countries: Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, Somalia and Yemen.

The path to a new life in the US for diversity visa lottery recipients like her seemed all but blocked. Although she said she was not refused under … Read More

US vaccine regulators on Friday authorized the nation’s first coronavirus shot for emergency use.

The Food and Drug Administration has determined that the benefits of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine outweigh the known and potential risks to the public, based on data from clinical trials.

Most trial participants reported temporary side effects after being vaccinated, including fatigue, headaches, and pain at the injection site. People under 55 reported more side effects overall, but few participants had severe fatigue or headaches that stopped them from performing normal activities. Serious adverse events were reported in only 0.6% of vaccine recipients.

These results were consistent across genders, age groups, ethnic and racial groups, and people with preexisting medical problems. But several populations were excluded from the trials – meaning it’s still unclear whether the vaccine is safe for

Billionaire Leonard Lauder reveals successful people are first to arrive at work, last to leave

Estée Lauder Chairman Emeritus and cosmetics billionaire Leonard Lauder told Fox Business Network Tuesday that being successful is all about the time put in and knowing firsthand that there’s no substitute for hard work.

Leonard Lauder, the eldest son of Estée and Joseph Lauder, told “Cavuto: Coast to Coast” that his father consistently beat him to the office and was last to return home.
