The Lpga Just Released a Strict New Dress Code Eliminating Plunging Necklines, Short Skirts and Leggings
Women seem to be continually defending their clothing choices right now. We’ve seen instances from high school graduating seniors, mall shoppers and even female reporters in the House Speaker’s lobby, all of whom have stood up to the backlash and body shamers while promoting change in the process. But according to news from the Ladies Professional Golf Association, the organization is on a mission to reverse its players’ dress code by banning shirts with “plunging necklines,” racerback tank tops, short skirts and even leggings.

According to Golf Digest, it all started with an email sent out on July

Carlton Cuse: How Staying Zen Makes Him One of TV’s Most Prolific Showrunners
Carlton Cuse is a busy man. He recently signed a deal with Amazon Studios for ten episodes of his new “Jack Ryan” series, an action packed spy thriller written originally by famous writer of espionage Tom Clancy. And the new series is one of four shows backed by Cuse as an executive producer, which also include “Bates Motel,” “Colony” and “The Strain.” With his experience and almost supernatural ability to juggle a hectic workload (although he admits he has some leeway, as he was able to set up all of his production offices along the Ventura Blvd corridor), the Writers Guild asked him to explain his approach to writing and collaboration, and how to be an effective showrunner.

Here are some of his tips for writers and showrunners alike.

Things Will Change

Perfectly perfect in every way: Lost’s best episodes, by season

Lost was a landmark series for network television, a one-of-a-kind show that producers and executives are still trying, and failing, to recreate. It’s been ten years since it premiered, on September 22, 2004 (which, coincidentally, was the date of the crash of Oceanic 815). Rather than try to make a simple Top 10 Episodes list, which would induce nightmares of trying to rank drastically different installments, here are the best episodes from each of Lost’s six seasons, along with six runners up.

Season 1: “Walkabout”

Written by David Fury

Directed by Jack Bender

“Walkabout” is the episode that transforms John Locke from simple ensemble member to one of the focal points of the series, a character who up to this point has just been a mysterious hunter who smiles with orange peels in his mouth. He becomes so much more than that as the series goes on, as a member of two

Rescue efforts are in full force following the sinking of a South Korean ferry on Tuesday, and authorities believe that 270 people are trapped inside the vessel, with some possibly still alive. The five-story ferry listed and tipped to its side before sinking off the southern coast of South Korea. There were more than 450 people aboard the overnight ferry, and so far, 28 deaths have been reported, with around 179 people rescued from the waters. In more tragic news, one of the first people rescued, a high school vice principal on board with his students, was found hanging from a tree near the port where loved ones are awaiting news. It marked the latest in a series of dark events. Since Tuesday, there's been no shortage of wind, rain, and fog, and bad weather conditions have made rescue efforts difficult for the more than 500 divers searching the wreckage. A cause of the accident hasn't been confirmed,

'Hawaii Five-0': Inside the fan-built episode; plus, a sneak peek -- Exclusive Video
Hawaii Five-0 executive producer Peter Lenkov has his feet propped up on a long table, where the rest of the show’s writing staff also sits. All eyes are on the two dry erase boards covered in small, all-caps writing that run the length of the room. Here, much of the so-called “fan-built episode” is outlined but two unplaced pawns remain — a toy rocket and a maze.

Prior to this day in December, fans of the show voted on elements that would be worked into the storyline. They picked the setting (Chin Ho’s High School Reunion), the victim (a
