Roe v. Wade ‘Could Well Be Overturned’ With Kavanaugh on the Court, Planned Parenthood President Says


Reported to us by: TIME - 20 min 56 sec ago - [CET]

Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Leana Wen said Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court ruling that legalized abolition, “could well be overturned” with the addition of Brett Kavanaugh to the nation’s highest court.

“I’m a doctor and a scientist and I have to look at the evidence,” Wen told TIME the TIME 100 Gala on Tuesday. “The evidence is clear on Brett Kavanaug’s record of being anti-women’s healthcare, anti-reproductive healthcare, anti-healthcare, anti-rights. We are very concerned about what he’ll do.”

When Wen was named president of Planned Parenthood last year, she became the first physician to lead the health care organization in five decades. She attended the TIME 100 Gala as one of the event’s honorees.

Kavanaugh was narrowly confirmed to the Supreme Court after a bruising nomination fight, which included Christine Blasey Ford publicly accusing him of sexually assaulting her decades ago in high school. Kavanaugh repeatedly denied the allegation.

Both Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh were named to the 2019 TIME 100 list of influential people.

In a divisive political environment with an increasingly conservative Supreme Court — both of which have threatened abortion providers like Planned Parenthood — Wen has also stressed Planned Parenthood’s important role as an provider of affordable health care, for people of all genders.

She said despite the political opposition, she her organization will continue with its missions.

“Planned Parenthood has been attacked countless times before,” she said. “Our doors are open today, they’ll be open tomorrow, they will be open for another 100 years.”

Jared Kushner, Hillary Clinton, Tim Cook and More: Highlights of the Inaugural TIME 100 Summit


Reported to us by: TIME - 21 min 43 sec ago - [CET]

Leaders shaping the worlds of politics, science, business and culture sat for interviews in New York City on Tuesday during the first TIME 100 Summit.

Apple CEO Tim Cook, White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton were among the speakers at the wide-ranging event, which featured thought leaders from the annual TIME 100 issue. The issue names the top 100 figures who have wielded the most significant influence on the world over the last year.

Here are a few of the standout moments of the inaugural TIME 100 Summit:

Kushner discusses the Mueller report

Among the event’s highlights were comments by Kushner on Special Counsel Robert Mueller report on Russian interference on the 2016 election and its involvement with President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign. Kushner downplayed the implications of Russia’s actions, arguing that the investigation had a more detrimental impact on the country than Russia’s widespread operation.

“All of the speculation that’s happened for the last two years has had a much harsher impact on our democracy than a couple of Facebook ads,” Kushner said.

Hillary Clinton on indicting Trump

Clinton, unsurprisingly, offered a different take on the report. She argued that if someone else had behaved like the President, they would have been indicted.

“Any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been indicted, but because of the rule in the Justice Department that you can’t indict a sitting President, the whole matter of obstruction was very directly sent to the Congress,” Clinton said.

However, she said that she didn’t trust legislators to take action, criticizing what she called “the do-nothing Senate.”

Rep. Nancy Pelosi discussed impeachment

Rep. Pelosi was more cautious in her criticism of the President, arguing that members of Congress have not yet gathered enough evidence to justify pursuing impeachment.

“[Impeachment is] one of the most divisive paths we could go down in our country, but if the path of fact-finding takes us there, we have no choice,” Pelosi said. “We’re not there yet.”

However, she lobbed criticism at members of the President’s party who have turned a blind eye to his conduct, and argued that it’s crucial for Congress to receive the entire report.

“What’s surprising about it is that the Republicans seem to have an unlimited appetite for that kind of behavior. Instead of being ashamed of what that report said, they gave their blessing once again to the President.”

Tim Cook said government should regulate tech

Apple’s CEO argued that the government can have a role in making technology companies behave ethically.

“Technology needs to be regulated. There are now too many examples where the no rails have resulted in a great damage to society,” Cook said.

Thought leaders called for humanity in scientific advancement

Panelists including geneticist George Church discussed ways that their fields can be made more ethical.

Church explained that he had learned in his career that there are times when it is necessary to practice restraint instead of blindly moving forward in the name of progress. He explained that a decade earlier, he had made a decision not to spread information about the possibility of tailoring biological weapons to individual people. He later pushed back at another researcher who wanted to publish about a similar idea.

“I asked, ‘do you really want to do this, enabling no particular purpose?’ It was a line I didn’t cross, and wouldn’t,” Church said.

Daenerys and Robb Stark Just Had a Game of Thrones at an Event Where Everyone’s Definitely Safe


Reported to us by: TIME - 31 min 10 sec ago - [CET]

It’s been some years since Emilia Clarke and Richard Madden were co-stars on Game of Thrones, but at Tuesday night’s TIME 100 gala, it was clear the bond was still strong.

In the midst of mingling with fellow 2019 TIME 100 honorees the Mother of Dragons and the doomed King in the North Robb Stark were all smiles as they chatted. It’s par for the course for the actors.

“I see Emilia all the time so not too big a deal to reunite,” he told TIME.

With Game of THrones on everyone’s minds, we had to ask Madden about the most heartbreaking Thrones scene him. “Jon riding out to save Rickon, but just missing him,” he said, which makes total sense to us.

Next up, Maddess is set to star opposite Taron Egerton as Elton John’s former manager and boyfriend John Reid in the Rocketman biopic.

But Thrones breakout role is still the one he’s most liked to play. “I would love to say Prince Charming, but probably Robb Stark. He tries to do the right thing but is bad at it,” he said.

In the midst of the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke attended TIME’s celebration of the 100 most influential people in the world as one of the 2019 honorees. Clarke, who has rocked the world with her portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen over the past eight years that HBO’s beloved medieval fantasy drama has been on the air.

Even in the midst of suffering two life-threatening brain aneurysms in the early days of Thrones, a trauma she spoke publicly about for the first time in March, Clarke has consistently been an inspiration to women both on and off screen.

“She has the courage of a small lion, the stamina of a Welsh pit pony and the soul of a clown,” actor Emma Thompson wrote in a tribute to Clarke for the TIME 100 issue. “A powerhouse to watch and an ally to die for.”

Looking ahead, Clarke is set to star alongside Thompson and Crazy Rich Asians‘ Henry Golding in the romantic comedy Last Christmas and make her true crime debut in a movie adaptation of Joe Sharkey’s nonfiction thriller Above Suspicion.

Chip and Joanna Gaines Say Their New Television Network Is ‘Bigger and Broader’ in Scope


Reported to us by: TIME - 58 min 9 sec ago - [CET]

Just weeks after officially announcing their latest project — a cable television network — design superstars Chip and Joanna Gaines celebrated at the TIME 100 Gala as two of the evening’s honorees.

The Texas couple parlayed their hit HGTV home remodeling show Fixer Upper into an empire that includes branded goods, a magazine, a coffee shop and a market, along with their Magnolia Homes remodeling business. Though Fixer Upper ended in April 2018, the Gaineses shared details about their return to television with TIME.

The new venture will be “in the vein” of Fixer Upper, but “bigger and broader in scope,” Chip told TIME during cocktail hour. The network will also expand its scope to “cooking, lifestyle, family,” Joanna added.

The as-yet-unnamed network is set to replace Discovery’s DIY network, and will premiere in 2020.

“We do construction for a living, we raise babies for a living, we’re married for a living so all of those elements will definitely be in the show,” Chip said. The Gaines welcomed their fifth child, son Crew, last June.

The luminaries kept rolling into the event and the pair had jokes about collaborating with a few. “We’ve got Jimmy Fallon, we’ve got the Rock. Glenn Close just told us she’d do a 30-minute documentary with Jane Goodall,” Chip riffed.

Before mingling with their fellow honorees, the pair made a joke about Joanne’s noted adoration of shiplap, the wooden board “This just in: Jo’s over shiplap,” he said. “That is not true!” Joanne contested.

Khalid Says People Used to Chant ‘Khalid Can’t Sing’ at Him in High School


Reported to us by: TIME - 59 min 56 sec ago - [CET]

At just 21 years old, Khalid is already on the path to becoming something of a legend in the hip-hop world.

But there were haters who doubted his skills, and even bullied him.

“I guess people didn’t like my singing or my voice. Says it’s something that happens to everyone in high school but he had a good friend group to get him through it. “I never let it get me down,” the R&B singer and songwriter told TIME at the TIME 100 gala in New York City Tuesday.

Khalid, born Khalid Robinson, hit the red carpet before performing for his fellow honorees as one of TIME’s most influential people of 2019. Taylor Swift is set to perform at the gala as well.

Since he released his first single in 2016, his songs have repeatedly topped the billboard charts. In 2017, he snagged an MTV video music award for best new artist and he’s showing no signs of slowing down.

Alicia Keys, who wrote his tribute for this year’s TIME 100, praised him as “totally unique.” “He’s accessible—almost like you’ve met somebody like him before, although there’s nobody else like him,” Keys wrote.

His latest album Free Spirit came out earlier this month and it’s already topping charts. But Khalid was coy about when he would release his third album.

President Trump Met With Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey After Criticizing the Social Media Platform


Reported to us by: TIME - 1 hour 13 min ago - [CET]

(Bloomberg) — Twitter Inc. Chief Executive Officer Jack Dorsey met with Donald Trump at the White House Tuesday, the same day the president tweeted that Congress should “get involved” in a battle against “discriminatory” practices by the social media company.

In a series of tweets, Trump said it was “so true” that he was the best thing to happen to the company, but that Twitter doesn’t “treat me well as a Republican.”

“The best thing ever to happen to Twitter is Donald Trump.” @MariaBartiromo So true, but they don’t treat me well as a Republican. Very discriminatory, hard for people to sign on. Constantly taking people off list. Big complaints from many people. Different names-over 100 M…..

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 23, 2019

…..But should be much higher than that if Twitter wasn’t playing their political games. No wonder Congress wants to get involved – and they should. Must be more, and fairer, companies to get out the WORD!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 23, 2019

The president complained that his follower count would be “much higher” if Twitter “wasn’t playing their political games.”

“No wonder Congress wants to get involved – and they should,” he said.

The meeting between Trump and Dorsey, reported earlier by Motherboard, was confirmed by White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Twitter didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Great meeting this afternoon at the @WhiteHouse with @Jack from @Twitter. Lots of subjects discussed regarding their platform, and the world of social media in general. Look forward to keeping an open dialogue! pic.twitter.com/QnZi579eFb

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 23, 2019

As of Tuesday morning, Trump had 59.9 million Twitter followers, making him the 13th most-tracked user on the social media network behind individuals including former President Barack Obama and singers Katy Perry and Taylor Swift. But the president has repeatedly voiced his displeasure with an effort by Twitter last year to remove tens of millions of suspicious accounts, with the company saying it was trying to help combat manipulative and abusive content by deleting fake profiles.

The president lost hundreds of thousands of followers in the purge, but so did many of the company’s most-visible users, including Dorsey, who said he lost about 200,000 followers as part of the initiative.

Dorsey told lawmakers in September that the company wasn’t biased and that there were technical explanations for each example that Republicans had raised to press their case of political bias. And Twitter said Tuesday that about 38 percent of abusive content is now being found through technology and flagged for human review, up from none last year.

“We are taking a more proactive approach to reducing abuse and its effects on Twitter,” Dorsey said Tuesday in a statement. “We are reducing the burden on victims and, where possible, taking action before abuse is reported.”

One Taste Samin Nosrat Would Give Up If She Absolutely Had to Live Without It


Reported to us by: TIME - 1 hour 16 min ago - [CET]

Samin Nosrat’s Netflix show focuses on the the four essential flavors of salt, fat, acid and heat – but pressed on which one she would give up if she had to, she picked salt.

“Fat gets all the textures. Acid gives dimension. Heat is cooking. But salt is kind of an acquired palate… I like to think that I would forget how delicious salt tastes,” the TIME 100 honoree said at the TIME 100 Gala on Tuesday.

When the chef, food writer and cookbook author turned her award-winning cookbook Salt Fat Acid Heat into a Netflix series, it didn’t take long for viewers to fall in love as they watched her travel the world, dispensing tips and schooling viewers on the four fundamental elements of flavor.

The Netflix series, which premiered last fall, brought Nosrat to Italy, Japan, Mexico and her adopted hometown of Berkeley, Calif. Along the way, she ate everything from miso eggs to aggressively spicy tacos.

Nosrat, who is Iranian-American, has also long been passionate about increasing diversity in the food industry, and bringing opportunities to other brown chefs.

Nosrat came from Chez Panisse, one of the most prestigious restaurants in the United States – but her fight to improve diversity and representation in the restaurant industry isn’t just focused on elite kitchens.

“We can’t invent a generation of leaders, we have to raise them,” she said. “We’re not done until we’re really, really done, until a server at Applebee’s or a cook at Red Lobster [gets the same treatment as those at the top].”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Says Impeachment Would Be Divisive But Is Not Off the Table


Reported to us by: TIME - 2 hours 41 min ago - [CET]

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi maintained that impeaching President Donald Trump would be incredibly divisive for the country while speaking at the first annual TIME 100 Summit on Tuesday in New York City. But she also said it wasn’t off the table.

“The Russians had a systemic overall assault on our electoral system and what we also did see is that the President of the United States engaged in behavior that was unethical, unscrupulous and beneath the dignity of the office that he holds,” she said. “What’s surprising about it is that the Republicans seem to have an unlimited appetite for that kind of behavior. Instead of being ashamed of what that report said, they gave their blessing once again to the President.”

“[Impeachment is] one of the most divisive paths we could go down in our country, but if the path of fact-finding takes us there, we have no choice,” the California Democrat and 2019 TIME 100 honoree added a bit later. “We’re not there yet.”

On the question of whether Trump’s actions were criminal, Pelosi responded that it “remains to be seen” after Congress can see the rest of the report, sans redactions. She also reiterated previous statements that she and fellow Democrats were not interested in seeing less-redacted versions in secure rooms a few legislators at a time.

“This is about being totally free from passion, from prejudice, from politics,” she said. “It’s about the presentation of the facts. And when we have the facts, we’ll have a better idea of how we go forward.”

She also expressed disappointed in how the Trump administration has acted in the days since the report was released.

“We now see the administration engage in stonewalling of the facts,” she said in reference to the Trump administration suing the Democratic chairman of the House Oversight Committee in efforts to block a subpoena sent last week seeking information about Trump’s finances.

The Mueller report was not the only thing Pelosi talked about, however. She also discussed the issues Democrats are prioritizing in this congressional session.

Instead of letting the Mueller report solely dominate discussion over the next several months, Pelosi said Democrats are trying to lower healthcare costs by reducing prescription drug prices, raise paychecks by building infrastructure and end partisan gerrymandering.

“We really have to do the people’s business because their kitchen table concerns are our concerns,” she said.

Those goals would certainly be easier to accomplish if Democrats win the White House in 2020, but Pelosi said she hasn’t picked a favorite contender just yet.

“Whether it’s 20, 21, 22, the number [of Democratic candidates] is growing — any one of them would be a better President than the present occupant,” she said. “I think they’re all wonderful, but it’s up to the public to decide.”
