The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (Etaf) and the United Nations Foundation's Nothing But Nets campaign announced today a partnership to combat HIV and malaria in southern rural Malawi.
Combined, malaria and HIV cause more than two million deaths each year. The partnership between Etaf and Nothing But Nets is a strategic approach to offering holistic care in order to tackle two deadly diseases that cripple communities. By combining resources, the organizations aim to continue a sustainable impact in the villages.
The remote rural area of Malawi visited by the delegation is home to approximately 675,000 people who face extreme poverty and an inadequate health infrastructure, with under-resourced health care facilities struggling to meet high demands for care. Etaf has funded quality, village-based health services »

If you thought you knew everything about Zac Efron, think again.
The 29-year-old actor participates in Vogue's "73 Questions" segment, and is as charming as ever while answering candid questions, doing celebrity impressions and standing by a cardboard cut-out of himself at the pool.
Efron makes an entrance by pulling into the driveway of his Los Angeles home in a 1964 1/2 Mustang, a.k.a. the first Mustang model ever made by Ford, that he calls "Gramps," because it was given to him by his grandfather.
One thing fans will quickly learn about the Baywatch star is that he has a name and/or title for everything. His DJ name would be AfroZac, his life as a musical would be Zacalicious, and if he could just change his name, he would like to be called Khaleesi -- after the fierce character on Game of Thrones.
Kate Upton, Joan Smalls, Elsa Hosk and their model friends are the most stylish, fierce workers to ever strut through Vogue‘s offices. The supermodels were invited to Vogue headquarters on the final day of New York Spring collections for an office-inspired video shoot featuring Dolly Parton’s classic “9 to 5”.

Macy, the film stars Alexandra Daddario, Kate Upton and Matt Barr. This sweet, and occasionally crude, comedy is a funny tale, and the film’s stars are very engaging.

In the road-trip comedy, directed by Macy, Daddario and Upton’s characters are on a flight heading to Fort Lauderdale that gets rerouted due to hurricane warnings. The best friends find themselves in St. Louis fighting over the same guy, played by Barr.
Macy told Variety that he’s a big fan of slapstick humor and romantic comedies. “I thought bringing my sensibilities to this might result in something good,” he said. “The script is unexpected, which is what I think comedy needs.”
Macy’s acting background proved to be an added benefit in having him direct, according to Daddario.
“He knows how to communicate with actors, he understands our insecurities, he »

If Hollywood had stopped making bad films, they would have made more money…
2017 probably isn’t the year to say that the Hl Mencken line about nobody losing money underestimating the public isn’t true, but it certainly looks like it no longer holds for the film industry.
Amidst the wailing and gnashing of teeth from studio executives with the news that 2017’s summer crop of blockbusters have failed to bust any blocks, there is the hope that maybe people have finally realised that the general public might go and see franchise films, remakes and comedy reboots of bad TV shows, they won’t go and see just Any old franchise films, remakes and comedy reboots of bad TV shows.
With studios looking likely to have their worst summer in ten years, the finger of blame is being pointed at an over dependence on stale movie ideas and big budget »

We’ve come to know Alexandra Daddario as the beach-babe-slash-girl-next-door who can also kick some serious butt.

And her star power is only rising, with a slew of movies slated to come out over the next two years.

If you thought we’d gotten past the point where romantic comedies were about two women throwing away their friendship just so they can hook up with a hot guy while on vacation, think again.

Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present, and future.
Sandwiched in between the summer’s biggest blockbuster offerings and superhero tentpoles are a pair of outrageously funny outliers — comedies that, for all their raunchy gags and wild behavior, center squarely on women and their friendships — in the form of “Rough Night” and the upcoming release “Girls Trip.” Although both films lean hard on their comedic trappings, often in the form of booze-fueled bad behavior from their leading ladies, they also both find unexpected heart and charm in their deeper explorations of the relationships between the very different women that populate them.
But even with films like “Rough Night” and “Girls Trip” hitting the multiplex with a welcome dose of girl power, it seems that even this summer isn’t immune from the most tired and toxic of lady-centric comedy tropes: the dicks before chicks sub-genre. »
