Most people are familiar with CrossFit, the intense circuit workout that has dominated the gym scene the past few years. There are tons of videos and pictures of people working out, but none quite like the video of Lindsay Hilton at a CrossFit box in Halifax.
Because Hilton was born with no arms and legs.
The video came to be when she asked someone at her gym to film her workout so she could check her form, and she was shocked when it was posted on the primary CrossFit Facebook page, garnering over 60,000 shares. She said she didn’t exactly feel inspiring in the CrossFit video, but that she also hopes if people see the video, they’ll think, “I can do that as well, and then the message gets passed on.”
In an awesome video that ends with President Obama dropping the invisible mic in his hand, the POTUS and Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda teamed up for a freestyle on Monday.
In case you’re unaware, Hamilton is an impossible ticket to get, unless you’re the President and the cast performs several hits from the Broadway show in the East Room. And for an encore? They took it out back for a little freestyle rap…
It’s the Big Game — the Super Bowl — which means it’s time for you to up your game in terms of what you’re putting in your own super bowl. Because whether or not your team wins, what’s important is that you’re well-fed and you have a variety of things to dip chips, pretzels, pita chips, and various other snack foods into.
Don’t worry. From spinach artichoke and supreme pizza dip to a few dessert options that may or may not include peanut butter and chocolate (spoiler: they do) we’ve got you covered. Score!
It’s like spicy, mouth-hugging chili meets comforting, soul-melting cheese fondue.
They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and, when you have a celebrity parent, that can mean the apple is one of those shiny, over-priced pieces of fruit from Whole Foods.
In other words, looking just like your famous parent no doubt comes with certain advantages. And, while most of us resemble our parents in some way, there is no doubt as to who these children call Mom and Dad.
There’s really no way to argue against the fact that actors are paid insane amounts of money — more money than 99.9 percent of us will ever see in our lives or those of generations that come after us.
But putting that fact aside, it’s always interesting to hear which actors are paid the most insane amounts of money for creating the entertainment that we spend our own money on.
And, for the third year in a row, Robert Downey Jr.’s $80 million payday is more than any other leading man on the planet — $30 million above Hong Kong hero Jackie Chan’s second place haul, to be exact, according to Forbes’ annual list.
The highest-paid actors, who hail from seven countries, earned a combined $941 million before taxes and fees between June 1, 2014 and June 1, 2015.
The list measures earnings before subtracting management fees and taxes; figures are based on data from Nielsen, Box Office Mojo and IMDB, as well as interviews with agents, managers, lawyers — and stars themselves.
(Forbes said that a separate list of highest-paid actresses will be published later.)
