“I don’t like them. I really don’t,” actress admits about the superhero genre Marvel fans might remember that it was Emily Blunt, not Scarlett Johansson, who was the first choice to play Black Widow in “Iron Man 2.” Now, Blunt wants to “clean up the story” about why she turned down the iconic role — and why we probably won’t see her in any future superhero flicks, either. Speaking with Howard Stern on Tuesday while promoting “A Quiet Place Part II,” Blunt explained that she originally turned down the part of Black Widow because she was already contracted to star in the 2010 film “Gulliver’s Travels.” “I was contracted to do ‘Gulliver’s Travels.’ I didn’t want to do ‘Gulliver’s Travels,” Blunt said. “I take such pride in the decisions that I make, and they mean so much to me. The films that I do… I care very deeply, very, very much, about the choices I make. That’s all I have, the choices that I make.” That said, Blunt admitted she’s not the biggest fan of the superhero genre. Elsewhere in the interview, she dispelled a rumor that she and her husband, John Krasinski, would be playing the leads in the next “Fantastic Four” film, brushing it off as “fan-casting.” As a result, Stern asked Blunt if the superhero genre itself was “beneath” her. “It’s not that it’s beneath me,” she responded. “I love ‘Iron Man’ and when I got offered Black Widow I was obsessed with ‘Iron Man.’ I wanted to work with Robert Downey Jr. — it would’ve been amazing. But I don’t know if superhero movies are for me. They’re not up my alley. I don’t like them. I really don’t.” She continued: “It’s been exhausted. We are inundated — it’s not only all the movies, it’s the endless TV shows as well. It’s not to say that I’d never want to play [a superhero]. It would just have to be something so cool and a really cool character, and then I’d be interested.” “A Quiet Place Part II” — a movie with zero superheroes in it — hits theaters May 28.

Ending “Ellen” show opens the door for Kelly Clarkson and Tamron Hall Ellen DeGeneres is ending her daytime talk show after 2022’s Season 19. That’s good news for (relative) newcomers Kelly Clarkson and Tamron Hall, who have been nipping at her heels in syndicated TV ratings for the last year or two. Ellen’s fellow syndicated veteran Maury Povich probably won’t be too broken up over her exit either. Like much of the TV landscape, the “Ellen” ratings have declined for years — but they really started to struggle this season, which kicked off just weeks after production company Warner Bros. fired three of the show’s top producers amid accusations of a toxic workplace and sexual misconduct that tarnished her onscreen persona as a queen of “nice.” DeGeneres’ daytime show is down a whopping 47% in ratings from her previous season so far, averaging a 1.0 in national household ratings. She had a 1.9 average in 2019-20 and a 2.1 in 2018-19. And she’s shed more than 1 million viewers on average since last season, according to Nielsen. “Dr. Phil” has regularly been the daytime talk show leader in ratings, though “Live With Kelly & Ryan” is currently ahead this season,...Read original story Ellen DeGeneres’ Exit Comes After Years of Daytime Ratings Declines At TheWrap

Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 42 percent of American adults are considered obese. "Obesity is a serious chronic disease, and the prevalence of obesity continues to increase in the United States," they explain. While there are ways to treat obesity, there isn't a cure. However, researchers claim that promising new drugs be the most effective treatment ever. Read on to find out what it is—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss this special report: I'm a Doctor and Warn You Never Take This Supplement. 1 What Is Obesity? Artur Viana, MD, Clinical Director Yale Medicine Metabolic Health&Weight Loss Program previously explained that obesity is defined as a chronic, relapsing, multifactorial, neurobehavioral disease, wherein an increase in body fat promotes adipose tissue dysfunction and abnormal fat mass physical forces, resulting in adverse metabolic, biomechanical, and psychosocial health consequences. "In obesity there is an increase in fat mass and the fat tissue (which is a tissue that is involved in many important regulatory steps in metabolism) is not working as it should," he said. Health complications can include organ system damage and result in everything from diabetes and joint disease to heart disease, and is even one of the leading causes of death in the United States. 2 How Is Obesity Treated Now? While eating a healthy diet and exercise are effective in helping with weight loss, many people who struggle with obesity can't keep the weight off. Currently, there are prescription medications that suppress appetite. "Most current prescribed treatments are aimed at reducing food intake by targeting the central nervous system," says Dr. Yan-Chuan Shi, head of the neuroendocrinology group at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Sydney, Australia."However, these can have significant psychiatric or cardiovascular side effects, which have resulted in over 80% of these medications being withdrawn from the market." 3 What the New Research Says Dr. Yan-Chuan Shi and her team wanted to find a way to help people lose weight with their central nervous system being affected. So, they focused their energy on the nerve signaling molecule called neuropeptide Y (NPY) which helps many mammals to survive without eating as much. Basically, it increases food intake while conserving energy stores by decreasing heat generation in brown adipose tissue—aka fat. "The Y1 receptor acts as a 'brake' for heat generation in the body. In our study, we found that blocking this receptor in fat tissues transformed the 'energy-storing' fat into 'energy-burning' fat, which switched on heat production and reduced weight gain," Shi explained."NPY is a metabolism regulator that plays a critical role during states of low energy supply, where it helps store fat as a survival mechanism," Professor Herbert Herzog, head of the Eating Disorders Lab at Garvan, explained in a press release. "Today, however, these advantageous effects can exacerbate existing diet-induced weight gain, leading to obesity and metabolic disease."RELATED: The #1 Cause of Obesity, According to Science 4 What This Means The researchers are confident that their findings could be a game changer in terms of how obesity is treated. "Our study is crucial evidence that blocking Y1 receptors in peripheral tissues without affecting the central nervous system is effective at preventing obesity by increasing energy expenditure. It reveals a new therapeutic approach that is potentially safer than current medications that target appetite," says Professor Herzog."Our team and other groups have revealed further potential benefits in targeting the NPY-Y1 receptor system, including the stimulation of bone cell growth, and improvement in cardiovascular function and insulin resistance," he added. "We hope that the publication of our findings will lead to increased interest for exploring BIBO3304 and related agents as potential treatments for obesity and other health conditions."

The hosts of the talk show unanimously defended the ousted Republican After more than a week of speculation, Liz Cheney was officially ousted from her leadership position in the GOP on Wednesday, and the hosts of “The View” were exceedingly disappointed. Wednesday was one of the few times the panel unanimously agreed on something political, with each woman defending Cheney. Host Joy Behar kicked off the discussion, applauding Cheney for breaking ranks from Trump and the GOP, no matter what that meant for her job and future within the party. “She is the Joan of Arc, standing up to the heretics at this point. And so she is very lonely in that position,” Behar said. “I do have faith though that she is a tough cookie and intends to persevere. It is rather refreshing to see somebody stand up to the QAnon party, who’s not afraid to lose her job like the rest of those cowards who are shivering and quivering in the corner that they may have to go back to their old lives.” Behar continued to slam the GOP, speculating on the long-term ramifications of those insisting without evidence that the 2020 election was “rigged” or “stolen,” before outright condemning any Republican, lawmakers or otherwise. “In this instance, we may lose our democracy. So, why anybody is a Republican at this point is something I cannot fathom,” Behar said. You can watch Behar’s comments in full below. .@JoyVBehar on Rep. Liz Cheney: “It is rather refreshing to see somebody stand up to the QAnon party who is not afraid to lose her job like the rest of those cowards who are shivering and quivering in the corner.” https://t.co/OtB5sDxzDd pic.twitter.com/J7CkmvAiWh— The View (@TheView) May 12, 2021 Host Sara Haines also noted her dissent in political opinion, but added she appreciates the moves Cheney has made over the last few weeks. “I don’t agree with much of Liz Cheney’s politics, if any at all. I’m leaving a little room for error,” Haines said. “But I do respect her right now because she is standing up for the truth.” Even Meghan McCain, who is openly conservative, praised Cheney for not bowing to the pressure of her party. For McCain, the real disappointment is Cheney’s replacement: Elise Stefanik. McCain noted that Stefanik is historically much more centrist in her voting, where Cheney was decidedly conservative. McCain added that she doesn’t believe that Stefanik “actually believes what she’s saying,” and thinks Stefanik is simply trying to obtain power.

DaCosta has starred on the Dick Wolf medical drama for six seasons Yaya DaCosta is exiting NBC’s “Chicago Med” to star on Fox’s new Lee Daniels drama “Our Kind of People,” TheWrap has learned. “America’s Next Top Model” alum DaCosta has starred on the Dick Wolf-created medical drama for all six of its seasons, playing the role of April Sexton, a smart, bold and intuitive nurse with the ability to adeptly tackle the most harried of circumstances in the hospital. Inspired by Lawrence Otis Graham’s book, “Our Kind of People: Inside America’s Black Upper Class,” the new Fox series takes place in the aspirational world of Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard, a historical stronghold where the rich and powerful black elite have come to play for more than 50 years. “Our Kind of People,” which will air during the 2021-2022 season, follows strong-willed, single mom Angela Vaughn (played by DaCosta) as she sets out to reclaim her family’s name and make an impact with her revolutionary haircare line that highlights the innate, natural beauty of Black women. But she soon discovers a dark secret about her mother’s past that will turn her world upside down and shake up the community forever. Angela is described as fashion-forward “boho” woman, an up and coming hair products entrepreneur. Angela grew up in a working class household and has never gotten over the fact that her wealthy father (who she never met) turned his back on them. A lot of her bravado and moxie is to protect her heart. After the death of her beloved mother Eve, Angela inherits a waterfront Main Street property on Martha’s Vineyard and moves there with her alienated daughter Nikki. Angela intends to open a store on the island and further build her brand, and she’s hoping to gain acceptance into the Vineyard’s elite and long-standing Black community. But her way is blocked by Leah Franklin Dupont, the social arbiter who rules the roost on the island. However, Angela is a fighter who isn’t deterred. “Our Kind of People” is written and executive produced by Karin Gist. Additional executive producers include Daniels and Marc Velez for Lee Daniels Entertainment, Pam Williams and Claire Brown for The Gist Of It Productions, Ben Silverman, Howard T. Owens and Rodney Ferrell for Propagate and Montrel McKay. Read original story Yaya DaCosta to Exit NBC’s ‘Chicago Med’ to Star on Fox’s ‘Our Kind of People’ At TheWrap
According to science, one out of every four Americans develop insomnia every year. Fortunately, 75 percent of them recover, 21 percent experience poor sleeping with bouts of acute insomnia, while the remaining six percent develop chronic insomnia, meaning they struggle to sleep for at least three nights a week for more than three months. Those who struggle with sleep disorders may attempt to treat the condition in a variety of ways, ranging from calming bedtime rituals and hot tea before bed to taking natural or prescription sleeping aids. Now, a new study has determined that one of the most popular treatment methods is ineffective for those dealing with chronic insomnia. Read on to find out what it is—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss this special report: I'm a Doctor and Warn You Never Take This Supplement.Sleep Medications Don't Help Chronic Insomnia, Study FindsAccording to research published Tuesday in BMJ Open, while prescription sleep medications can help women who experience acute insomnia, it won't help the chronic version. "Whether caused by stress, illness, medications, or other factors, poor sleep is very common," senior author Michael Perlis, Ph.D., an associate professor of Psychiatry and director of the Behavioral Sleep Medicine program, explained in a press release. "These findings reveal new insights about the paths that acute insomnia takes and can inform interventions that target poor sleep and help people recover sustained sufficient sleep."Researchers pored through two years of data from almost 700 middle-age women, focusing on their sleep habits. They determined that Ambien, Lunesta and other anti-anxiety meds—all of which can be helpful in the short-term (up to six months)— aren't any more effective to help women sleep than taking nothing at all. "Sleep disturbances are common and increasing in prevalence. The use of sleep medications has grown, and they are often used over a long period, despite the relative lack of evidence from [randomised controlled trials]," the study authors concluded.They added that while the drugs may work well in some people with sleep disturbances over several years, the findings of this study should "give pause for thought to prescribing clinicians and patients thinking about taking prescription meds for sleep disturbances in middle age."RELATED: 5 Ways to Prevent Dementia, Says Dr. Sanjay GuptaThe Right Amount of Sleep Per NightAdults need 7 or more hours of sleep per night for the best health and wellbeing, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Short sleep duration is defined as less than 7 hours of sleep per 24-hour period.

Freshman congressman keeps it classy Freshman representative Madison Cawthorn celebrated Wednesday after his colleagues in the House voted to remove Rep. Liz Cheney from her leadership position because of her criticism of former President Donald Trump. “Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey, goodbye Liz Cheney,” the young Republican wrote in a tweet. Cawthorn’s November election, like Cheney’s Wednesday morning ouster, signals how much power Trump and his brand of conservatism have in the Republican party. Just before Cheney was stripped of her role as House Republican Conference chairwoman, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough tore into the new iteration of the GOP on “Morning Joe,” saying the party he used to be proud to belong to no longer exists. Cheney, too, had plenty to say to the coalition that removed her over her vocal criticism of Trump, though she did not agree with Scarborough’s assessment. “I do not think that it is an indication of where the Republican Party is. I think that the party is in a place that we’ve got to bring it back from and we’ve got to get back to a position where we are a party that can fight for conservative principles, that can fight for substance. We cannot be dragged backward by the very dangerous lies of a former president,” she said. Still, the party is clearly basing plenty on Trump. In 2020, Cawthorn, a 25-year-old North Carolina Republican and political novice, sent a distinctly Trumpy, antagonistic tweet when he won the U.S. House seat held by Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows. “Cry more, lib,” Cawthorn tweeted on election night after the Associated Press projected him the winner in his contest with Democrat Moe Davis, a 62-year-old retired Air Force colonel. Cawthorn had won 54.4% of the vote to 42.4% for Davis, with 99% of the ballots counted.
