This week's Nose is energy unfocused, innovation hindered, hope strangled, greatness disguised. Taylor Swift currently occupies the entire top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. That's the, uh, new record. She's also got 10 other songs in other spots on the Hot 100. Fully one-fifth of the entire Hot 100 is Taylor Swift songs right now. Federal law requires that we cover this phenomenon. (No it doesn't.) And: Don't Worry Darling is the second movie directed by Olivia Wilde. It's kind of a feature-length Black Mirror episode starring Florence Pugh, Harry Styles, Chris Pine, and Wilde. Its reportedly troubled production and promotion have been the focus of much scrutiny and spawned the word, uh, “spitgate.” Some other stuff that happened this week, give or take: Remembering Takeoff, The Best Rapper in Migos He was “the quiet” member of the Atlanta rap group, but his demeanor belied a commanding presence The Decline of Etiquette and the Rise of ‘Boundaries' For centuries, strict social norms dictated what people could politely talk about. Now we have to figure it out for ourselves. Grading Taylor Swift's ‘Karma' With a Buddhist-Studies Professor A Mom Who Tweeted About Throwing Out Her Kids' Halloween Candy Said She Was Accused Of Abuse After It “Escaped The Orbit” Of Her Followers Meet this week's Bean Dad. What do users want from their TV streaming? A new NPR/Ipsos poll has some answers ‘Non-binary' Romeo and Juliet set in Nazi Germany apologises for omitting Jews from casting call The Icarus Theatre production shows the hero as being a member of the Hitler Youth Pack Your Bags, We're Moving to ‘Roku City' Instead of streaming a new TV show or movie, some Roku users are in it for the screen saver. The Eerie Comfort of Liminal Spaces Why we're compelled by images of abandoned shopping malls, waiting rooms, and corridors The Original E.T. Model From The Movie Is Going Up For Auction, And You'll Just Need A Couple Million Bucks Martin Luther King Jr. paid the bill for Julia Roberts' birth. Here's the backstory Professional Cornhole Has a Cheating Scandal Called BagGate Officials talk of new regulations to root out illegally sized bags. Fans are reeling: ‘The dirty underbelly is being exposed.' Netflix's ‘Blockbuster' and Hollywood's Greatest Spite Projects The new workplace sitcom is the ultimate flex by Netflix after Blockbuster refused to buy the streamer in the early 2000s. But this isn't the first time egos in Hollywood decided to be petty… Who Is Jennifer Lawrence Now? The Oscar-winning “Hunger Games” actress is free from her franchise commitments. But after a brief hiatus from acting, what will she do next?

"All Quiet On The Western Front" had its world premiere at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, where it stunned audiences with its bleak story and technically astounding battle sequences. Based on the famous novel of the same name by Erich Maria Remarque, this is the first time the story has been adapted in German for a global audience. The film has been selected by Germany for Best International Feature Film at this year's Oscars and features some of the finest crafts of the year, all worthy of your consideration for this year's awards season. Director/Writer Edward Berger was kind enough to spend some time talking with me about why he decided now was the right time to tell this timeless story again, what went into making the action scenes, and more.

 How to Leverage Human Connections with Riaz Meghji   Today we are delighted to be speaking with Riaz Meghji, the author of Every Conversation Counts!  Riaz has had a fascinating career! He switched from being a broker to speaking about human connections. He has worked on TV and radio and is also a podcaster and TEDx speaker. He joins us today to tell his story, talk about human connection and share his insights and advice.  We hope you enjoy listening to today's enlightening conversation with Riaz Meghji! Bio: Riaz Meghji is a human connection expert and author of “Every Conversation Counts: The 5 Habits of Human Connection That Build Extraordinary Relationships”. His insights have been featured in Fast Company, Harvard Business Review, and Financial Post. He is also an accomplished broadcaster with 17 years of television hosting experience; he has interviewed experts on current affairs, sports, entertainment, politics, and business.  Riaz has hosted for Citytv's Breakfast Television, MTV Canada, TEDxVancouver, CTV News, and the Toronto International Film Festival. He is a natural storyteller with a proven ability to conduct engaging, in-depth conversations across various disciplines. Off camera, Riaz dedicates himself to philanthropy and causes he cares about, including Canuck Place Children's Hospice and Covenant House. He holds a degree in business from Simon Fraser University and studied leadership communication at Harvard Extension School and the Canadian Management Centre. He lives in Vancouver, B.C., with his wife Lori and son Nico. Riaz's story Riaz's family moved from East Africa to Canada. Twenty years ago, Riaz deviated from his career in finance, took a leap of faith, and followed his passion in the presentation space. Since then, he has interviewed thousands of people as a television host and broadcaster. He has learned something from every conversation!  Human relationships The power of human connection has always intrigued Riaz. He now lives a life of purpose, exploring how to build personal and professional relationships. From finance to becoming a presenter While in the final semester of his finance degree, Riaz did a presentation at an international student organization conference. Afterward, the co-chair took him aside and convinced him that he had something to offer in the presentation space. That person's belief in his potential opened Riaz's eyes to the life he wanted to live. A few months later, he landed his first internship with MTV in Canada.  Coaching Riaz advises people to find a coach and remain coachable. Listen to what they say, and also listen to your intuition. Complacency Avoid becoming complacent because complacency cultivates mediocrity.  A beginner's mindset Riaz entered the craft of presenting intending to retain a beginner's mindset and being his authentic self. A beginner's mindset is about staying open, finding people you respect, and asking them for feedback. Pushing forward Make all your contributions to the best of your ability at any given moment. Have the courage and humility to ask for help. That will push your forward as a speaker or when pursuing something you feel passionate about. Mentorship If you are looking for a mentor, find someone who is committed and cares about you.  Connecting Be intentional about connecting with others. Then strive to be consistent in your behavior until it becomes habitual.  Connecting with others in hybrid meetings As a leader in hybrid meetings, you are managing energy and people. Everyone has their own expectations, so be intentional about checking in with people consistently and getting their feedback. Empathetic curiosity When people with cultural differences get together in a meeting, it's vital for leaders to use empathetic curiosity and ask questions to understand how people show up and react.  Feedback Sometimes, people take honesty the wrong way. That could create a sense of distance. That's why it is necessary to earn credibility and trust before being vulnerable and sharing your thoughts honestly.  Building trust Use empathetic curiosity to build trust in a new relationship. Start the conversation with questions that allow the other person to reflect, open up, and share. After that, check in with them consistently to show you care. Consistency Leaders should consistently provide and receive a steady stream of feedback. Use consistent praise or constructive criticism to let people know that you are invested in their growth and progress. Brainstorming sessions Brainstorming sessions are helpful. They also create opportunities for employees to share their input. Accessibility As a leader, make yourself accessible so that employees know they can always reach you if they need help.  Audience Speakers need to consider their audience when preparing for a presentation. Riaz believes that the best speakers are the best listeners. So he always tries to understand his audience to provide them with maximum value and a memorable experience.  Experience Riaz likes to interview leaders who can participate live on stage in his sessions to role model how to make the experience interactive. Then he allows audience members to share stories about their defining moments.  Storytelling Storytelling is crucial to convey information with emotion. Storytelling also helps the audience interact and lean into what the speaker has to say. Rehearsing Rehearsing is a crucial part of any presentation. It helps to speak out loud and anticipate questions you may be asked. Communicating to strengthen human connection It is important to understand the context in which the people you are communicating with prefer to respond. Ask them how they like to communicate (text, email, or video, for example) when they like to communicate, and how often they prefer to communicate. Then, ask for suggestions so everyone feels like part of the process.  Sending daily voice notes will add a personal touch, show people that you care, and promote loyalty.   Connect with Eric On LinkedIn On Facebook On Instagram On Website   Connect with Riaz Meghji On LinkedIn

Anthony Shim (Daughter) directed, wrote, edited, produced, and acted in Riceboy Sleeps, the staggering coming of age film that screens at the 2022 Vancouver International Film Festival. The dramatic feature tells the story of a South Korean immigrant and single mom, So-young, who is raising her son Dong-hyun in the Vancouver suburbs in the 1990s. So-young desperately wants to instill a sense of pride in the boy. In turn, he only wants to be considered “Canadian” in hopes of avoiding bullying at school. As Dong-hyun grows older, his frustrations over knowing nothing about his father are only exasperated when So-young introduces a surrogate patriarch into his life. A cruel twist of fate sends the pair back to South Korea, where all will be revealed about the family's history. The film was shot in Canada and South Korea and had its world premiere at the venerable 2022 Toronto International Film Festival, where it was awarded the Platform Prize. Riceboy Sleeps explores the high cost that many immigrants pay – emotionally, spiritually, physically, and culturally – while striving to build their lives in Canada's so-called multicultural utopia. In this contemplative conversation, Anthony Shim reflects on the real-life events that led to Riceboy Sleeps, and how his identity as a Korean Canadian informs his work.

Nayani, and co-written with Golshan Abdmoulaie and Kawennáhere Devery Jacobs who also stars as one of the film's lead actresses, The film carefully explores the interconnection between cultural identity of different ethnic communities such as Tamil, Mohawk, Iranian, and through the use of music, Kalaisan explores the differences and similarities that are relatable to people in a multi-cultural society like Toronto.Visit Kalaisan's Intagram page and website to learn more about his work:https://www.instagram.com/kalaisan13/www.kalaisanmusic.comYou can read my interview with V.T. and lead actress Priya Guns, published in the Toronto Star.Follow me on Twitter and Instagram @CarrieCnh12, and look for the hashtag #SHWHTIFF22 for info about my TIFF22 festival coverage.

This week we're off to the Tremite mound to talk Karl Marx, Bala Town FC, Bradley Walsh's Crooning Career and what John knows about famous Ants. --- Join our Patreon for just a quid where you'll get access to Bonus episodes and help us pick an episode every month. https://www.patreon.com/100thingsfilm  --- Antz is a 1998 American computer-animated adventure comedy film directed by Eric Darnell and Tim Johnson (in their feature directorial debuts) from a screenplay by Todd Alcott, Chris Weitz, and Paul Weitz. The film features the voices of Woody Allen, Sharon Stone, Jennifer Lopez, Sylvester Stallone, Christopher Walken, Dan Aykroyd, Anne Bancroft, Danny Glover and Gene Hackman. Some of the main characters share facial similarities with the actors who voice them.[10] Antz was the first film from DreamWorks Animation, and the third feature-length computer-animated film after Disney and Pixar's Toy Story (1995) and NDR Filmes's Cassiopeia (1996). During its production, a public feud erupted between DreamWorks co-founder Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Steve Jobs and John Lasseter of Pixar, due to the production of their similar film A Bug's Life, which was released a month later. This only worsened when Disney refused to avoid competition with DreamWorks' intended first animated release, The Prince of Egypt (1998). Antz premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 19, 1998,[11] and was released theatrically in the United States on October 2, 1998, by DreamWorks Pictures. It grossed $171.8 million worldwide on a budget of $42–105 million. The film received positive reviews, with critics praising the voice cast, animation, humor, and its appeal towards adults.[12]

The first episode of Dear Mama premieres on September 15 at the Toronto International Film Festival, with the entire five-part series airing on F/X later this year; Hughes's conversation with Heilemann is the first time he has spoken in detail about the project. They discuss the director's tumultuous relationship with Tupac in both of their early years in show business, which led to Hughes being brutally beaten by gang associates of the young rapper; how the relationship between Tupac and his mother shaped his outlook, politics, and attitude toward violence; the hot-eyed feud between hip hop's East Coast and West Coast factions in the Nineties; and the still much-debated circumstances surrounding Tupac's murder in Las Vegas in 1996. In second part of the episode, Hughes and Heilemann explore the director's groundbreaking career, from Menace II Society, Dead Presidents, and The Book of Eli to the game-changing HBO doc series, The Defiant Ones, about music-industry titans Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine, as well as Hughes's tantalizing next undertaking: a biopic of Motown legend Marvin Gaye, entitled What's Going On.
