Back at the ball, Charlotte is surprised to see Augusta and Alexander. Augusta is elated, telling Charlotte that she must always stay around, for the effect that she has on Alexander. When Alexander ends up dancing with Charlotte, he also asks her to stay: her presence has transformed them all, himself included.
Charlotte flees, distraught, and runs into Alexander, who spots Lennox and asks what he said. Charlotte angrily tells him what Lennox told her about Alexander, then chides Alexander for not explaining why he warned her against Lennox. He promises to tell her everything, but not at the ball.
In a flashback, we see that Fred engineered his own departure, really, telling Cory to take the reins in his place and send him off scot-free, which he compares to Ford pardoning Nixon. (\"In this situation, I am the Richard Nixon guy\" is apparently something Fred thinks is a good thing.) Fred says he will reveal all if Cory doesn't get the case settled.
Kyle, Cory's assistant, apparently has a friend who spotted Bradley and Laura together, and later, Kyle tells Cory that the hot goss is that they're dating. Cory is like NUH-UH THEY ARE NOT, because it seems he's in love with Bradley. He flashes back to the Bad Times when she still had dark hair, when she told him she was going to go to the Board and threaten not to come back from her suspension () unless they rehired him (what). And it looks like Bradley and Cory were going to make out, but it's not clear here whether they ever did, because he stops thinking about it right before they either do or don't, I guess.
Cory pays a visit to Hannah's father, played by the great David Paymer. Cory tells him (actually yells at him and lectures him) that he should just take the money in the settlement, because there's going to be a smear campaign against Hannah if he doesn't. Somehow, Mr. Schoenfeld fails to see this as a gesture of kindness.
None of this satisfies Alex, who goes to Maggie's room late at night (presumptuous!) and demands to know what's in The Book (unacceptable!). She goes through Maggie's stuff (see above: trashcan!) until she finds a book cover, which reveals that The Book is called The Wrong Side Of The Bed. Maggie tells her that since it's truthful, there's nothing in it about Alex that Alex doesn't already know. Maggie eventually realizes that Alex's real concern is that The Book says Alex slept with Mitch, which Alex fears will bind her to him in people's minds forever. Alex just keeps on lying that the idea that she slept with Mitch is false and libelous and has to be taken out. Maggie is not impressed. Do not come for Marcia Gay Harden, people.
Mitch tells Paola about how he bullied Hannah right before she died. And he says mournfully that this, unlike all the other things he did, can't be written off as ignorance. Hey, guess what, dude! None of the rest of it can be \"written off as ignorance\" either! A guy in Mitch's situation not knowing he shouldn't pressure women who worked for him to sleep with him in 2017 was active ignorance at best; it was a refusal to know. \"This was the result of cultivated ignorance\" and \"this can be written off as ignorance\" are two different things.
Yanko is still trying to work his way out of the \"spirit animal\" thing, which is going to involve him sitting down with members of the Seminole Tribe. Yanko keeps returning to his \"I'm not a racist, I'm Cuban, Stella is using racism as a weapon against me\" defense, and he says he's not participating in this stunt, and Mia looks tired. I feel you, Mia.
Stella experiences some viciously racist street harassment, and ... I understand why the show chose to include it. But at least in the short run, instead of really digging into the ways it affects Stella, they make it part of Yanko's story of being cancelled over a single comment. Specifically, it becomes about how he steps up to defend Stella from racists and winds up in a fight that's caught on video. See, Yanko is good!
As Visago gets free of the droid, he sends more into the cockpit, telling them to keep Ezra busy. Ezra manages to use the Force to get back the droid controller from Vizago, but a stray blaster shot from one of the droids causes him to lose it again. When Ezra finally manages to get it back and shut down the droids, he gets a distress call from Chopper, Hondo is stealing the Phantom!
Kate doesn't shy away from telling Anthony that she's also plagued by feelings for him. However, there is a third party whose feelings she has to take into consideration. Declaring herself in love with Anthony, Edwina wants nothing more than to go on with their betrothal. And so, in the following day, it is not to confess her love that Kate goes looking for Anthony on her morning ride, but to ask him to take Edwina back.
But while the seller wants to get the $2.2 million she paid for the place plus the money she sunk into all of those swank blinds and custom cabinets and closets, Luis is a bit more pessimistic. One woman's $45,000 blinds is another woman's garbage. But desperate for a deal, Luis tells her what she wants to hear and proposes to list the place at $2.65 million. Deal.
A few days later, the strategy pays off with an offer of $2.25 million, which is low. The buyer doesn't want to pay $400,000 more than the price from a few months before, but Luis's seller refuses to go lower than $2.35 million. Luis tells the buyer's rep that they will need at least $200,000 more, knowing that whatever he gets above the seller's goal is just gravy. Maybe that time he spent in Fredrik's presence paid off
Oh yeah she is! Let's all have a KiKi together. Ryan is really smitten over her, especially when she tells him that her parents will just let her pick any apartment she wants because she is a princess. Just look at this face.
With Mabel, Alice and Oliver left at the end, he starts accusing her of more than just the game as she has a tell; playing with her hair while lying. Hurt by the exposition, she leaves and her card turns out not to be Son of Sam.
At the beach club, Albie makes it a point to spend time with Lucia despite Dominic's dismay. Grandpa calls her and Mia escorts, which offends Albie. He again schools his father and grandfather on why their judgment of prostitutes is hypocritical. Meanwhile, Cameron scolds Ethan for telling Harper what happened during their rager night. Albie tells Lucia that he has her money during a cute little swim at the beach club. In response, she lets him know that she wants to see him again, but not for money because she \"likes\" him. Sparks are flying, folks.
These thoughts were going through my mind when I first looked at this oil painting called Aspiration by Aaron Douglas. I was curious as to what Douglas was really trying to tell his audience and why these elements were painted. This piece is part of a mural cycle that he painted to represent the lives and journeys of African Americans. The importance of looking for hope and towards a better future can really be read through the title Aspiration and through the way the figures are shown in this piece.
SHANNON:Yeah. When you see that, it's very easy to tell them apart with just like a little bit of practice. But back to what Lara was saying was size and how to tell them apart from a tree frog, because, believe it or not, I get a lot of phone calls about cane toads that are actually Cuban tree frogs.
LARA:Yeah. So removing invasive species, at least in terms of animals, isn't exactly my favorite part of my job to tell people to do that. But at least in the case of the cane toad, Shannon and I mentioned a lot of people call us expressing concern about their pets. So that's one way you can help protect your pet, by removing these species.
Whenever people tell porkies, they seem to come to Sandy for help. Being a spare man and his own master - he can provide the alibi or hide the goods. However, multi-tasking was never his strongpoint even when he was Manager (Acting) of the Five Feathers, Frinton. Deceiving needs practice and not on the job, either.
Yeah, and I think fear gets used as almost like a Boogeyman. In the sense that, you know, and we see this a lot in the vaccine misinformation, which is, you're only getting a vaccine because you're a prisoner of fear that someone is using fear to control you. So, when you're, when you're thinking through fear, and vaccines and misinformation around vaccines, there's fear plays a dual role. One is fear is the enemy. But then, the other one is fear is your friend. So it could be these untrustworthy institutions are using fear to manipulate you and force you to do something to your body that you should never do. On the other hand, you know, if we look through, as we have, right, just this afternoon, looking through Telegram and Facebook, and how people are talking about the COVID-19 vaccines, they're very much designed to make people afraid of the vaccine. The telegram channel, that one of them that has, you know, something like 30,000 followers on it, but I was looking through just now, one of the most common ways or anecdotes is just to list somebody who died after getting the vaccine. And there's this idea that there's a period where you might be fine, and then you'll just collapse and die. That format, right, tells like a horror story, and so mobilizing fear to sow distrust in the vaccines of the vaccination process. That's another way that fear kicks into this situation. 781b155fdc
