#FanclubdisesNoticias: Diario Usa Today pidió no votar por Donald Trump


El rotativo USA Today rompió con su histórica neutralidad en las contiendas presidenciales de EE.UU. e instó a sus lectores a que no voten por el candidato republicano, Donald Trump, al que calificó de “mentiroso compulsivo”, el próximo 8 de noviembre.

Nacido en 1982, el USA Today se había mostrado neutral durante sus 34 años de historia, una política que revisaba antes de cada contienda “porque cada elección es diferente”, pero que “nunca encontró razones para alterarla”, “hasta ahora”.

“Este año, uno de los candidatos -el republicano Donald Trump- está, de acuerdo con el criterio unánime del consejo editorial, incapacitado para la Presidencia”, sentenció el USA Today en un editorial.

“Desde el día en que anunció su candidatura hace 15 meses hasta el primer debate presidencial de esta semana, Trump ha demostrado en varias ocasiones que le falta el temperamento, el conocimiento, la firmeza y la honestidad que EE.UU. necesita en sus presidentes”, agregó.

El editorial enumera los motivos por los que considera a Trump “incapacitado” para llegar a la Casa Blanca, como su criterio errático, sus pronunciamientos en política exterior, sus prejuicios hacia los mexicanos, musulmanes y demás inmigrantes o su “accidentada” trayectoria empresarial plagada de pleitos.

Para el USA Today, el magnate neoyorquino es un “mentiroso compulsivo” que ha “vulgarizado” la política nacional y lo compara con el expresidente Richard Nixon (1969-1974) por su capacidad de crearse enemigos.

“Este editorial tampoco representa un apoyo incondicional a Hillary Clinton, que tiene sus propios defectos”, apuntó el USA Today, que sin embargo insta a sus votantes a votar por la demócrata, por candidatos de otros partidos o incluso a escribir el nombre de alguien que no aparezca en la papeleta, una práctica en EE.UU. conocida como “write-in”.

“Sea lo que sea lo que hagas, resiste a los cantos de sirena de un demagogo peligroso. Por supuesto vota, simplemente no lo hagas por Donald Trump”, concluye el editorial.

Más allá del USA Today, la candidatura de Trump ha provocado que muchos rotativos tradicionalmente conservadores se hayan inclinado por Clinton en esta elección.

The Dallas Morning News, de Texas, rompió en agosto una tradición sostenida por décadas de respaldar al candidato presidencial republicano al asegurar que Trump está “en contra de casi todos los ideales del partido” y “no está cualificado para ser presidente”.

Es la primera vez desde 1964, cuando evitó comprometerse en la elección entre el demócrata Lyndon B. Johnson, que era texano, y el republicano Barry Goldwater, que el diario de Dallas decide no apoyar al candidato del Partido Republicano a la Casa Blanca.

Este miércoles, el Arizona Republic, el principal rotativo de Arizona, acabó con una tradición de 126 años -desde su fundación en 1890- al apoyar por primera vez en su historia al aspirante demócrata a la Casa Blanca, al considerar que Hillary Clinton es la mejor opción para las elecciones de noviembre próximo.

El Detroit News, de Michigan, también rompió hoy su tradición, en este caso de 143 años (desde 1873) de apoyar siempre al candidato republicano (menos en tres ocasiones en las que se mantuvo neutral) al pedir el voto por Gary Johnson, el presidenciable del Partido Libertario

Tom Petty named 2017 MusiCares Person of the Year

Tom Petty will be honored as the 2017 MusiCares Person of the Year at the organization’s annual gala and concert Feb. 10, two days before the 59th annual Grammy Awards.

MusiCares provides services to people in the music industry going through financial, medical, and personal emergencies. Petty, a three-time Grammy winner, is being honored by the organization for his music career, his interest in defending artists’ rights, and his charitable work, which has been focused on combatting homelessness in L.A.
“Tom burst into our musical consciousness and never let go,” Neil Portnow, president/CEO of the Recording Academy and MusiCares, said in a statement. “His brand of rock and roll benefits from a celebratory rebelliousness, infectious rhythms, and unforgettable lyrics that are incised in our imaginations. His artistic talents coupled with his quiet philanthropy make him a great MusiCares Person of the Year honoree, and we are very fortunate to have the support of our Board, past honorees and the musical community around this special event.”

“I am so very pleased to be honored as the MusiCares Person of the Year,” Petty added. “I have so much respect for this organization, which really does care about the people in our industry. I myself know many people who MusiCares has aided in desperate situations. Again, let me say, this is a true honor.”

Lionel Richie received the honor in 2016.

“DisneyVersary 2016” — Beautiful Mashup Of Your Favorite Disney Songs Will Give You Major Chills


Guys, I’m not going to lie. I listened to all 10 minutes of the above mashup, and I was not so low-key weeping and definitely teary-eyed through nine minutes of it.
If you don’t know Alan Menken, start humming literally any tune from the last 30 years or so of animated Disney movies.
Go ahead, I’ll wait.
You’re humming away at your laptop, probably scaring away Starbucks customers? Good.
There’s a great chance the song you’re vocalizing (if you’re like me, off-key) was fully or partially composed by Alan.
While at the recent 25th Anniversary Screening of “Beauty and the Beast,” Alan walked on stage, waved to the crowd, sat down and performed a medley of some of your favorite Disney songs of all time.
Yes, he played the piano and sang simultaneously (WHAT ARE YOU, THE GENI?).
We’re talking hits like “Part of Your World,” “Colors of the Wind” and “Friend Like Me.”


But the most chills you’ll get during the mashup is when Alan sings “I Can Go The Distance,” and the show-stopper finale of “Be Our Guest.”
Trust me, it’s the next best thing to turning on the “Beauty and the Beast” soundtrack and playing with your candelabra while eating dinner.

(*Cough”) Not that I do that on a nightly basis. (I do.)
Seriously, after hearing all the songs, I’m 98.5 percent goosebumps right about now.
OK, yeah, the other 11.5 percent is also goosebumps.
Leave me alone I’m a wreck.
The only thing I could think of to make this more magical is if we got a full Disney medley. I’m talking about using a song from every single Disney animated classic.
Then again, that medley would probably last days (and the piano player would probably have to be hospitalized before he got through it all).
Oh well. This will have to suffice. Have a free 10 minutes? Press play right now.

Zendaya Announces Her Own Clothing Line


You may need to sit down before we dish this exciting news: Zendaya is officially coming out with her own clothing line. That's right, pretty soon you'll be able to shop looks created by the fierce fashionista herself. We're not ready.

Last week, Z offered up a clue that suggested she was going to be expanding her Daya by Zendaya collection – which previously only included shoe designs – to an entire wardrobe. When announcing her upcoming guest judging spot on Project Runway, she revealed that she's wearing "head to toe" Daya by Zendaya in this pic.



Then, Z provided definite confirmation that a clothing line is in the works by Instagramming a closer look at the chic style she designed for herself – and will soon be letting us shop.



The actress shared that it feels great to be wearing her own custom threads, and then revealed that she's partnering up with her superstar stylist Law Roach for this project.



We can't wait to see more from these two!

#LoveItUpNews, Season 2, Ep.10: I Went a Week Without Shampooing My Hair and It Changed My Life

You know those magical unicorn people who can go 14 days straight without shampooing their hair and still look like they're fresh out of the shower? Yeah, I'm not one of those people. I usually only lather up my hair follicles every other day, but if I go any longer without sudsing, I'm a greasy mess. Dry shampoo helps calm the situation, but it's only a temporary fix.

So when my boss suggested I go a full work week without shampoo (the liquid kind, dry shampoo is fair game, thank god), while documenting the entire process, I was not excited. But in the name of investigative journalism, the internet's obsession with gross stuff, and my paycheck, I offered my scalp in search of the truth. (PS: the word 'scalp' is probably going be used a lot in this story, so if it grosses you out (ߙ˩, you've been warned.)

We begin our journey...

Day 1



This morning when I woke up, I knew this would be my very last day of shampoo – glorious, glorious shampoo – for an entire week. To prepare for the disgusting days ahead of me (because I live in New York and it's the hottest month of summer, not because I'm a gross person, just FYI), I used a clarifying shampoo to strip my hair of all the oils and built-up gunk currently living on my head. I skipped conditioner to try to start with as little oil as possible on my strands.

When I went through my morning routine, I opted out of any and all product – my hands and my blowdryer were my only helpers. Luckily, I've been really into going product-free the past couple of weeks, so I was vibin' on my messy look. Then, I accidentally dipped my hair in soup. No Wash Challenge: 1, Kelsey: 0.

Day 2



Two days is normally my cutoff for skipping shampoo. Unless I use a ton of product or played with my hair all day, day two normally goes by smoothly and this time was no exception. As usual, I rinsed my hair with water in the shower, blow dried it a bit to remove excess water, and scrunched it as it dried. I always wet it in the shower if I'm skipping shampoo to avoid bed head.


Day 3


The reason I always shampoo after two days is because I physically cannot do more than that – my scalp can't take it. My head will start to itch and the longer I go with dirty hair, the more it itches. On more than one occasion when I've skipped sudsing, I've scratched my head to the point that my scalp started bleeding. This is serious business. Thankfully, though, avoiding product and skipping conditioner seemed to work. I didn't scratch at all and apart from a little greasiness around the crown of my head, my hair looked pretty much normal.

Instead of letting it hang down in my face, which would inevitably lead to me pushing it out of my face all day and thus, touching it with my oily fingers, I chose to rock a hun. Last summer I lived in half-buns, but I haven't really been feeling them lately. This was a great excuse to revive the look.

Day 4



Okay, I've officially figured out the secret to not washing your hair: don't use product. Because I cut out the added oils and gunk, my hair game was still pretty solid four days into my No Shampoo Quest. It looked a bit gross around my face and crown, so I caved and spritzed on some of my favorite dry shampoo, effectively ending my no-product binge. I'll probably pay dearly for this tomorrow.

Day 5



Nope, my hair still looks great. Weirdly, it seems like the longer I go without washing my hair, the better it looks. My curls are forming nicely, but honestly, I'm finding it hard to focus on anything because I can't stop thinking about washing my hair. Never have I yearned to use shampoo so intensely. My roots got a little nasty, so I tapped on some baby powder and it cleared up the grease instantly. I've also been spending extra time scrubbing my scalp with my fingers in the shower to try to let the water wash off as much head slime as possible.

Day 6



This was not a good week to schedule a haircut, but NYC is expensive and since I was going home to Illinois for the weekend, I had to get a cut at my go-to salon. I warned my hairstylist and thankfully she didn't complain much, but I felt awful for forcing her to touch my six-day-old hair. I keep getting whiffs of my dirty scalp and it's not pleasant, so I can't imagine how gross cutting my hair must be right now.

She sprayed down my hair with water before cutting it, but other than that my trip to the salon went pretty normally. Since I wasn't coloring my hair, she didn't have to wash it, but she did add a bit of styling spray to it before I left. The down side of all of this is that when your hair is dirty and gross, it's pretty hard to get that fresh, new cut feeling, even when you did just take off an inch of hair.

Day 7



I GET TO WASH MY HAIR TODAY! I'm literally counting down the hours – it's all I can think about. But still, my hair looks startlingly good. Apparently, seven days of dirt and sweat mixed with water really works for me.

After



Never have I felt more refreshed or amazing than the moment I stepped out of the shower after seven days sans shampoo. I washed my hair twice with clarifying shampoo to get out every last dirt particle, and now I feel like a newborn angel. This experiment definitely taught me the secret to skipping shampoo: just go as light on the product as possible and really scrub your hair while you rinse it.

Now that the challenge is over, my hair has retained its ability to go shampoo-free. I went back to my every other day wash routine, but after the second day I didn't feel like a wash was necessary. I still washed it though, just because I'm slightly traumatized after going an entire week without. Other than that, my hair doesn't feel much different. I feel like it's softer, but I think that's just because I got used to how it feels while covered in a week's worth of New York street dust.
