The French film, Populaire (2012) plays homage to the 1950s era when typewriters were the MacBook equivalent. Rose, played by Deborah Francois, is 21-years old and lives with her father, who runs the local village store. Rose yearns for more excitement in her life, to break routine- so she travels to Lisieux, Normandy. She becomes hired by Louis Echard, played by Romain Duris, as a secretary. Louis is in dire need of a secretary for his insurance agency, but Rose seriously lacks the basic necessities of a secretary. She has one special skill she can bring to the job though: she can type extremely fast.
Louis uses this opportunity to enroll Rose in a speed typing competition, and gives Rose the job as a secretary in return. Louis starts to train Rose to be the fastest typewriter in the world!

Gwen Stefani posed for a photo before taking the stage at the secret Rolling Stones concert in Los Angeles, California. The singer showed her admiration to the band by pairing together a stones shirt with a pair of the J Brand Leather Leggings in Noir.
It has been long overdue to see Gwen in these pants. She is one that is constantly caught in the new styles by J Brand, whether it be their cargos or their more uniquely detailed pairs like the Roz or tie-dyed pairs. These took her a bit longer to get caught in though, but I am happy to finally see her in them.

LOS ANGELES — There’s a scene in “42″ in which Jackie Robinson, the first black player in modern Major League Baseball, endures intolerably cruel racial slurs from the Philadelphia Phillies’ manager.
It’s early in the 1947 season. Each time the Brooklyn Dodgers’ first baseman comes up to bat, manager Ben Chapman emerges from the dugout, stands on the field and taunts him with increasingly personal and vitriolic attacks. It’s a visible struggle, but No. 42 maintains his composure before a crowd of thousands.
As a viewer, it’s uncomfortable to watch — although as writer-director Brian Helgeland points out, “if anything, the language we have in that scene was cleaned up from what it was.”
Such hatred may seem archaic, an ugly episode in our nation’s history that we’d rather forget. But
