Violet Gray is a fictional character featured in the long-running syndicated daily and Sunday comic strip Peanuts, created by Charles M. Schulz, she was a major character, until she began to fade into the background. Violet is best known as a jealous girl who likes bragging and, along with her friends Patty and Lucy teases and torments Charlie Brown. In addition to the comic strip, Violet has appeared alongside other Peanuts characters in numerous Peanuts television specials, cinematic movies, theatrical plays, video games. Violet was first featured in the February 1951 Peanuts strip. From there on, Violet's character changed and developed until she began to become less prominent than the other major characters, with her forthcoming appearances reduced to mere cameos, her last comic strip appearance, discounting the reruns of the strip, was on the November 27, 1997 Peanuts strip. As Violet's character developed over the years, her appearance changed as well. In the early strips, Violet has her shoulder-length dark hair kept in either pigtails, a bun, or, sometimes, a ponytail.
On, Schulz dropped the braids and kept Violet's hair only in ponytails. Violet wears front bangs and wears dresses which are depicted as purple. During the winter, Violet switches to pants. Violet wears a purple dress in The Peanuts Movie. Violet is smart, a snob, she makes her opinions known to everyone, her haughtiness causes her to torment other people, whom she views as beneath her. Violet is of upper-class upbringing, she likes to brag about how her father possessing something her friends' fathers don't. For example, in a Father's Day strip, her boasts are quelled by Charlie Brown when he takes her to his dad's barber shop. After telling her about how his dad would always smile at him no matter how bad a workday he was having, a humbled Violet walked away, but not before wishing Charlie Brown a Happy Father's Day. In another example, a character named "5" fired back at her with "My dad goes to PTA meetings!" Charlie Brown once deflated her with the comeback: "My dad has a son."In the early strips, Violet acted like a preschool-age Suzy Homemaker: making mud pies, playing "house," and being linked to romantic scenarios involving Charlie Brown.
She collects stamps as a hobby. On some occasions, Violet was shown keeping company with Shermy, her surname was mentioned only once, on April 4, 1953. Violet's personality was much more forceful and recognizable compared to the more generic early Peanuts characters like Patty and Shermy, which allowed her to survive longer than those founding characters when a new wave of characters. By the 1960s, Violet, was phased out with the introduction of the next wave of characters. Schulz admitted in a 1988 interview that Violet's pure vindictiveness had made it difficult to give her punch lines. Speaking of her and Shermy: "Some characters just don't seem to have enough personality to carry out ideas. They're just born straight men." Violet's appearances were reduced to mere cameos in the background. Violet teased Charlie Brown, who makes comebacks. In an example of such, Violet once said to him, "It goes without saying that you are an inferior human being." His adroit reply to this was, "If it goes without saying, why did you have to say it?"
She, along with Patty, enjoyed tormenting him with this. Charlie Brown is depressed by this, but sometimes he decides to turn the tables on the two girls. For example: November 23, 1951: When they mentioned excluding Charlie Brown from their party, he let it roll off his back saying he did not want to go to their "dumb ol' party" anyway. After he left, they pondered. Violet was convinced he did, so Patty suggested "In that case, maybe we'd better invite him." January 29, 1954: Charlie Brown replied to them saying if they did not like him they were better off not inviting him. Stunned to silence, the girls just walked away, with Charlie Brown smiling after them. September 1, 1954: Charlie Brown uncharacteristically threatened to strafe bomb their house if he was not invited, to which both girls replied, "Okay, you're invited."In early strips, she was linked to romantic scenarios involving Charlie Brown. She feels bad for him when he doesn't get a Valentine's Day card in Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown, which hints that she cares about him deep down.
Although Charlie Brown was the usual recipient of Violet's cruelty, he was not the only one. One memorable Sunday strip of September 20, 1959, featured her hurling a series of virulent insults at Lucy, although Lucy won this battle by unleashing her own string of rapid-fire insults at Violet, causing Violet to walk away in shock. Nor was Linus immune - one 1961 strip involved her and Patty mocking Linus for carrying a blanket (to which Linus responded by wrapping himself in his bl
Happiness Is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown
Happiness Is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown is a Peanuts television special, released in 2011. The special is the 45th Peanuts special and the first produced without Bill Melendez on the production team, it is the first special without the direct involvement of Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz, Lee Mendelson Productions or Bill Melendez Productions. In addition, it is the first Peanuts special produced in part under Warner Bros. Television, which holds the home media distribution rights to the Peanuts specials; the special was released on DVD on March 29, 2011, first aired on television on October 1, 2011, on Teletoon in Canada. The special premiered in the United States on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2011, at 8:30PM ET/PT on Fox, the first Peanuts special to air on the network. Coincidentally, the first half of the film's original Fox broadcast in 2011 competed directly with a Peanuts special that aired at the same time on ABC; the special aired again on November 23, 2012 and December 17, 2013.
The program special is notable in that the characters/animation are drawn in a 1950s/early-1960s style, it uses only characters from that time period, except for the inclusion of one character and intermediate-era characters Frieda, Faron, 5, 4, 3 appearing as extras. The title recalls the 1960s Peanuts phrase "Happiness Is a Warm Puppy," which became a cultural reference; this special is, so far, the only Peanuts special to be made in the 2010s, the only special to be in high definition. The film was announced by one of the hosts at the 2010 84th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade when a Snoopy balloon passed by, saying "Snoopy fans will be happy to know that next year, a new Peanuts animation will be flying your way."The last Peanuts special had been in 2006. Craig Schulz, son of the strip's creator, said. WildBrain Entertainment employed Yearim Productions in Korea to do the work. Schulz said the majority of the script used the actual strips, supplemented by work by Pearls Before Swine creator Stephan Pastis.
Pastis had the idea to focus on Linus' blanket. After the death of Bill Melendez, the voices of Snoopy and Woodstock were provided by director Andrew Beall, however, in Peanuts animated productions, some recordings of Melendez were used; the movie was scored by Devo frontman Mark Mothersbaugh. Some scenes come from It's an Adventure, Charlie Brown, The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show, A Charlie Brown Celebration; the special starts with Woodstock following holes dug by Linus, looking for his security blanket. In the next scene, Charlie Brown is shown playing baseball with his friends, where Linus is criticized for bringing his blanket. Lucy informs Linus that their grandmother is coming this weekend, if Linus doesn't get rid of his blanket, it will be cut up into pieces by their grandmother. Meanwhile, Schroeder is playing piano, Lucy tries to get him to notice her, with her only obstacle being a bust on Schroeder's piano. Charlie Brown suggests. In the meantime and Patty roast Pig-Pen for his dirt cloud.
Lucy decides to lock Linus' blanket in the closet for the day, this time, Linus is to have no substitutes for his blanket. The next day, Snoopy steals Linus' blanket again, Lucy turns it into a kite, which gets lost after she lets go of it. Lucy smashes the bust on Schroeder's piano, only for him to have a replacement bust. A few days Linus gets his blanket back, only for Lucy to bury it, which leads to the scene the special started at. Snoopy digs up the blanket for Linus out of pity; the next day, Snoopy drags Linus and his blanket across the neighborhood, which all the children follow as they get affected in their path. After all the children criticize Linus to his limit, he delivers a monologue about how everyone needs some security, while pointing out their own securities that are like his blanket. Grandma Van Pelt arrives, Linus gives her a wash cloth as a decoy of his blanket; the story ends with Linus trying to get his blanket back after Snoopy steals it, shouting "AUGH!!"

Charles M. Schulz
Charles Monroe "Sparky" Schulz, was an American cartoonist and creator of the comic strip Peanuts. He is regarded as one of the most influential cartoonists of all time, cited by cartoonists including Jim Davis, Bill Watterson, Matt Groening, Stephan Pastis. Born in Minneapolis, Schulz grew up in Saint Paul, he was the only child of Carl Schulz, born in Germany, Dena Halverson, who had Norwegian heritage. His uncle called him "Sparky" after the horse Spark Plug in Billy DeBeck's comic strip, Barney Google. Schulz loved drawing and sometimes drew his family dog, who ate unusual things, such as pins and tacks. In 1937, Schulz drew a picture of Spike and sent it to Ripley's Believe It or Not!. Schulz attended Richards Gordon Elementary School in Saint Paul, he became a shy, timid teenager as a result of being the youngest in his class at Central High School. One well-known episode in his high school life was the rejection of his drawings by his high school yearbook, which he referred to in Peanuts years when he had Lucy ask Charlie Brown to sign a picture he drew of a horse, only to say it was a prank.
A five-foot-tall statue of Snoopy was placed in the school's main office 60 years later. In February 1943, Schulz's mother Dena died after a long illness. At the time of her death, he had only been made aware that she suffered from cancer. Schulz had by all accounts been close to his mother and her death had a big effect on him. Around the same time, Schulz was drafted into the United States Army, he served as a staff sergeant with the 20th Armored Division in Europe during World War II, as a squad leader on a.50 caliber machine gun team. His unit saw combat only at the end of the war. Schulz said he forgot to load it, he said. Years Schulz proudly spoke of his wartime service. In late 1945, Schulz returned to Minneapolis, he did lettering for a Roman Catholic comic magazine, Timeless Topix, in July 1946, took a job at Art Instruction, Inc. reviewing and grading lessons submitted by students. Schulz had taken a correspondence course from the school, he worked at the school for several years while developing his career as a comic creator until he was making enough money to do that full-time.
Schulz's first group of regular cartoons, a weekly series of one-panel jokes called Li'l Folks, was published from June 1947 to January 1950 in the St. Paul Pioneer Press, with Schulz doing four one-panel drawings per issue, it was in Li'l Folks that Schulz first used the name Charlie Brown for a character, although he applied the name in four gags to three different boys as well as one buried in sand. The series had a dog that looked much like Snoopy. In May 1948, Schulz sold his first one-panel drawing to The Saturday Evening Post. Around the same time, he tried to have Li'l Folks syndicated through the Newspaper Enterprise Association. Li'l Folks was dropped from the Pioneer Press in January 1950; that year, Schulz approached United Feature Syndicate with the one-panel series Li'l Folks, the syndicate became interested. By that time Schulz had developed a comic strip using four panels rather than one, to Schulz's delight, the syndicate preferred that version. Peanuts made its first appearance on October 1950, in seven newspapers.
The weekly Sunday page debuted on January 6, 1952. After a slow start, Peanuts became one of the most popular comic strips of all time, as well as one of the most influential. Schulz had a short-lived sports-oriented comic strip, It's Only a Game, but he abandoned it after the success of Peanuts. From 1956 to 1965 he contributed a single-panel strip, "Young Pillars", featuring teenagers, to Youth, a publication associated with the Church of God. In 1957 and 1961 he illustrated two volumes of Art Linkletter's Kids Say the Darndest Things, in 1964 a collection of letters, Dear President Johnson, by Bill Adler. At its height, Peanuts was published daily in 21 languages. Over the nearly 50 years that Peanuts was published, Schulz drew nearly 18,000 strips; the strips, plus merchandise and product endorsements, produced revenues of more than $1 billion per year, with Schulz earning an estimated $30 million to $40 million annually. During the strip's run, Schulz took only one vacation, a five-week break in late 1997 to celebrate his 75th birthday.
The first collection of Peanuts strips was published in July 1952 by Company. Many more books followed contributing to the strip's increasing popularity. In 2004, Fantagraphics began their Complete Peanuts series. Peanuts proved popular in other media. Numerous TV specials followed, the latest being Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown in 2011; until his death, Schulz wrote or co-wrote the TV specials and oversaw their production. Cha
DVD is a digital optical disc storage format invented and developed in 1995. The medium can store any kind of digital data and is used for software and other computer files as well as video programs watched using DVD players. DVDs offer higher storage capacity than compact discs. Prerecorded DVDs are mass-produced using molding machines that physically stamp data onto the DVD; such discs are a form of DVD-ROM because data can only be not written or erased. Blank recordable DVD discs can be recorded once using a DVD recorder and function as a DVD-ROM. Rewritable DVDs can be erased many times. DVDs are used in DVD-Video consumer digital video format and in DVD-Audio consumer digital audio format as well as for authoring DVD discs written in a special AVCHD format to hold high definition material. DVDs containing other types of information may be referred to as DVD data discs; the Oxford English Dictionary comments that, "In 1995 rival manufacturers of the product named digital video disc agreed that, in order to emphasize the flexibility of the format for multimedia applications, the preferred abbreviation DVD would be understood to denote digital versatile disc."
The OED states that in 1995, "The companies said the official name of the format will be DVD. Toshiba had been using the name ‘digital video disc’, but, switched to ‘digital versatile disc’ after computer companies complained that it left out their applications.""Digital versatile disc" is the explanation provided in a DVD Forum Primer from 2000 and in the DVD Forum's mission statement. There were several formats developed for recording video on optical discs before the DVD. Optical recording technology was invented by David Paul Gregg and James Russell in 1958 and first patented in 1961. A consumer optical disc data format known as LaserDisc was developed in the United States, first came to market in Atlanta, Georgia in 1978, it used much larger discs than the formats. Due to the high cost of players and discs, consumer adoption of LaserDisc was low in both North America and Europe, was not used anywhere outside Japan and the more affluent areas of Southeast Asia, such as Hong-Kong, Singapore and Taiwan.
CD Video released in 1987 used analog video encoding on optical discs matching the established standard 120 mm size of audio CDs. Video CD became one of the first formats for distributing digitally encoded films in this format, in 1993. In the same year, two new optical disc storage formats were being developed. One was the Multimedia Compact Disc, backed by Philips and Sony, the other was the Super Density disc, supported by Toshiba, Time Warner, Matsushita Electric, Mitsubishi Electric, Thomson, JVC. By the time of the press launches for both formats in January 1995, the MMCD nomenclature had been dropped, Philips and Sony were referring to their format as Digital Video Disc. Representatives from the SD camp asked IBM for advice on the file system to use for their disc, sought support for their format for storing computer data. Alan E. Bell, a researcher from IBM's Almaden Research Center, got that request, learned of the MMCD development project. Wary of being caught in a repeat of the costly videotape format war between VHS and Betamax in the 1980s, he convened a group of computer industry experts, including representatives from Apple, Sun Microsystems and many others.
This group was referred to as the Technical Working Group, or TWG. On August 14, 1995, an ad hoc group formed from five computer companies issued a press release stating that they would only accept a single format; the TWG voted to boycott both formats unless the two camps agreed on a converged standard. They recruited president of IBM, to pressure the executives of the warring factions. In one significant compromise, the MMCD and SD groups agreed to adopt proposal SD 9, which specified that both layers of the dual-layered disc be read from the same side—instead of proposal SD 10, which would have created a two-sided disc that users would have to turn over; as a result, the DVD specification provided a storage capacity of 4.7 GB for a single-layered, single-sided disc and 8.5 GB for a dual-layered, single-sided disc. The DVD specification ended up similar to Toshiba and Matsushita's Super Density Disc, except for the dual-layer option and EFMPlus modulation designed by Kees Schouhamer Immink.
Philips and Sony decided that it was in their best interests to end the format war, agreed to unify with companies backing the Super Density Disc to release a single format, with technologies from both. After other compromises between MMCD and SD, the computer companies through TWG won the day, a single format was agreed upon; the TWG collaborated with the Optical Storage Technology Association on the use of their implementation of the ISO-13346 file system for use on the new DVDs. Movie and home entertainment distributors adopted the DVD format to replace the ubiquitous VHS tape as the primary consumer digital video distribution format, they embraced DVD as it produced higher quality video and sound, provided superior data lifespan, could be interactive. Interactivity on LaserDiscs had proven desirable to consumers collectors; when LaserDisc prices dropped from $100 per
A hero or heroine is a real person or a main fictional character of a literary work who, in the face of danger, combats adversity through feats of ingenuity, bravery or strength. On the other hand are post-classical and modern heroes, who perform great deeds or selfless acts for the common good instead of the classical goal of wealth and fame; the antonym of a hero is a villain. The concept of the hero can be found in classical literature, it is the main or revered character in heroic epic poetry celebrated through ancient legends of a people striving for military conquest and living by a continually flawed personal honor code. The definition of a hero has changed throughout time. Merriam Webster dictionary defines a hero as "a person, admired for great or brave acts or fine qualities." Examples of heroes range from mythological figures, such as Gilgamesh and Iphigenia, to historical figures, such as Joan of Arc, Giuseppe Garibaldi or Sophie Scholl, modern heroes like Alvin York, Audie Murphy and Chuck Yeager, fictional superheroes, including Superman and Wonder Woman.
The word hero comes from the Greek ἥρως, "hero" one such as Heracles with divine ancestry or given divine honors. Before the decipherment of Linear B the original form of the word was assumed to be *ἥρωϝ-, hērōw-, but the Mycenaean compound ti-ri-se-ro-e demonstrates the absence of -w-. According to the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, the Proto-Indo-European root is *ser meaning "to protect". According to Eric Partridge in Origins, the Greek word Hērōs "is akin to" the Latin seruāre, meaning to safeguard. Partridge concludes, "The basic sense of both Hera and hero would therefore be'protector'." R. S. P. Beekes rejects an Indo-European derivation and asserts that the word has a Pre-Greek origin. A classical hero is considered to be a "warrior who lives and dies in the pursuit of honor" and asserts their greatness by "the brilliancy and efficiency with which they kill"; each classical hero's life focuses on fighting, which occurs during an epic quest. Classical heroes are semi-divine and extraordinarily gifted, like Achilles, evolving into heroic characters through their perilous circumstances.
While these heroes are resourceful and skilled, they are foolhardy, court disaster, risk their followers' lives for trivial matters, behave arrogantly in a childlike manner. During classical times, people regarded heroes with the highest esteem and utmost importance, explaining their prominence within epic literature; the appearance of these mortal figures marks a revolution of audiences and writers turning away from immortal gods to mortal mankind, whose heroic moments of glory survive in the memory of their descendants, extending their legacy. Hector was a Trojan prince and the greatest fighter for Troy in the Trojan War, known through Homer's The Iliad. Hector acted as leader of the Trojans and their allies in the defense of Troy, "killing 31,000 Greek fighters," offers Hyginus. Hector was known not only for his courage but for his noble and courtly nature. Indeed, Homer places Hector as peace-loving, thoughtful as well as bold, a good son and father, without darker motives. However, his familial values conflict with his heroic aspirations in The Iliad, as he cannot be both the protector of Troy and a father to his child.
Hector is betrayed by the gods when Athena appears disguised as his ally Deiphobus and convinces him to take on Achilles, leading to his death at the hands of a superior warrior. Achilles was a Greek Hero, considered the most formidable military fighter in the entire Trojan War and the central character of The Iliad, he was the child of Peleus, making him a demi-god. He wielded superhuman strength on the battlefield and was blessed with a close relationship to the Gods. Achilles famously refuses to fight after his dishonoring at the hands of Agamemnon, only returns to the war due to unadulterated rage after Hector kills his close friend Patroclus. Achilles was known for uncontrollable rage that defined many of his bloodthirsty actions, such as defiling Hector's corpse by dragging it around the city of Troy. Achilles plays a tragic role in The Iliad brought about by constant de-humanization throughout the epic, having his menis overpower his philos. Heroes in myth had close but conflicted relationships with the gods.
Thus Heracles's name means "the glory of Hera" though he was tormented all his life by Hera, the Queen of the Gods. The most striking example is the Athenian king Erechtheus, whom Poseidon killed for choosing Athena over him as the city's patron god; when the Athenians worshiped Erechtheus on the Acropolis, they invoked him as Poseidon Erechtheus. Fate, or destiny, plays a massive role in the stories of classical heroes; the classical hero's heroic significance stems from battlefield conquests, an inherently dangerous action. The gods in Greek Mythology, when interacting with the heroes foreshadow the hero's eventual death on the battlefield. Countless heroes and gods go to great lengths to alter their pre-destined fate, but with no success, as no immortal can change their prescribed outcomes by the three Fates; the most prominent example of this is found in Oedipus Rex. After learning that his son, will end up killing him, the King of Thebes, takes huge steps to assure his son's death by removing him from the kingdom.
But, Oedipus slays his father without an afterthought when he unknowingly encounters him in a dispute on the road many years

Two quick subsequent phone calls from Peppermint Patty add Marcie and Franklin to the guest list, but since Charlie Brown cannot get a word in edgewise with Patty, he finds himself in a quandary with no easy solution, at least not until Linus shows up.
Linus suggests to Charlie Brown that he could have two Thanksgiving dinners, the first one for Patty and her friends and the second one at his grandmother's house. Charlie Brown says, he says that all he knows how to make is "cold cereal and maybe toast". Regardless, Linus recruits Woodstock to help; the guests make their way to the backyard for the Thanksgiving feast. Linus leads the group in prayer that details the First Thanksgiving in 1621, Snoopy serves up the feast which includes buttered toast, pretzel sticks, jelly beans, an ice cream sundae. Patty's initial shock at the unconventional meal turns to outrage, when she loudly berates Charlie Brown he timidly leaves the table. Patty's tirade continues until Marcie reminds her that she had invited herself along with Marcie and Franklin. Coming to her senses, Patty asks Marcie apologize to Charlie Brown on her behalf. During the quasi-feast Charlie Brown is reminded that he and Sally are due at their grandmother's house for dinner and will now be a little late, so he calls her and explains his situation.
When he mentions his friends are there, that they have not yet eaten, his grandmother invites them all to Thanksgiving dinner, welcomed with cheers from everyone. After the kids leave and Woodstock go to the doghouse and cook up their own traditional Thanksgiving meal that includes a turkey, complete with all the trimmings. Over the end credits, the two friends each devour dessert sit back with contented smiles as Woodstock pats his full stomach; the special first aired on CBS on November 20, 1973, continued to air every year on that network until November 23, 1989. The Disney Channel and Nickelodeon revived the special for reairing in the 1990s and in 2001, it moved, along with the rest of the Peanuts specials, to ABC.

Entertainment Weekly is an American magazine, published by Meredith Corporation, that covers film, music, Broadway theatre and popular culture. Different from celebrity-focused publications like Us Weekly, In Touch Weekly, EW concentrates on entertainment media news and critical reviews. However, unlike Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, which are aimed at industry insiders, EW targets a more general audience; the first issue was published on February 16, 1990. Created by Jeff Jarvis and founded by Michael Klingensmith, who served as publisher until October 1996, the magazine's original television advertising soliciting pre-publication subscribers portrayed it as a consumer guide to popular culture, including movies and book reviews, sometimes with video game and stage reviews, too.. In 1996, the magazine won the coveted National Magazine Award for General Excellence from the American Society of Magazine Editors. EW won the same award again in 2002. In September 2016, in collaboration with People, Entertainment Weekly launched the People/Entertainment Weekly Network.
The network is "a free, ad-supported online-video network carries short- and long-form programming covering celebrities, pop culture and human-interest stories". It was rebranded as PeopleTV in September 2017; the magazine features celebrities on the cover and addresses topics such as television ratings, movie grosses, production costs, concert ticket sales, ad budgets, in-depth articles about scheduling, showrunners, etc. It publishes several "double issues" each year; the magazine numbers its issues sequentially, it counts each double issue as "two" issues so that it can fulfil its marketing claim of 52 issues per year for subscribers. Entertainment Weekly follows a typical magazine format by featuring a letters to the editor and table of contents in the first few pages, while featuring advertisements. While many advertisements are unrelated to the entertainment industry, the majority of ads are related to up-and-coming television, film or music events; these beginning articles open the magazine and as a rule focus on current events in pop culture.
The whole section runs eight to ten pages long, features short news articles, as well as several specific recurring sections: "Sound Bites" opens the magazine. It’s a collage of media personalities. "The Must List" is a two-page spread highlighting ten things. "First Look", subtitled "An early peek at some of Hollywood's coolest projects", is a two-page spread with behind-the-scenes or publicity stills of upcoming movies, television episodes or music events. "The Hit List", written each week by critic Scott Brown, highlights ten major events, with short comedic commentaries by Brown. There will be some continuity to the commentaries; this column was written by Jim Mullen and featured twenty events each week, Dalton Ross wrote an abbreviated version. "The Hollywood Insider" is a one-page section. It gives details, in the separate columns, on the most-current news in television and music. "The Style Report" is a one-page section devoted to celebrity style. Because its focus is on celebrity fashion or lifestyle, it is graphically rich in nature, featuring many photographs or other images.
The page converted to a new format: five pictures of celebrity fashions for the week, graded on the magazine's review "A"-to-"F" scale. A spin-off section, "Style Hunter", which finds reader-requested articles of clothing or accessories that have appeared in pop culture appears frequently. "The Monitor" is a two-page spread devoted to major events in celebrity lives with small paragraphs highlighting events such as weddings, arrests, court appearances, deaths. Deaths of major celebrities are detailed in a one-half- or full-page obituary titled "Legacy"; this feature is nearly identical to sister publication People's "Passages" feature. The "celebrity" column, the final section of "News and Notes", is devoted to a different column each week, written by two of the magazine's more-prominent writers: "The Final Cut" is written by former executive editor and author Mark Harris. Harris' column focuses on analyzing current popular-culture events, is the most serious of the columns. Harris has written among other topics.
"Binge Thinking" was written by screenwriter Diablo Cody. After several profiles of Cody in the months leading up to and following the release of her debut film, she was hired to write a column detailing her unique view of the entertainment business.
