New York Times best-selling author Elin Hilderbrand eats, sleeps, and breathes Nantucket. She first visited the island in 1993 and moved there full time to write in 1998. All of her novels take place on the island, starting with “The Beach Club’’ (2000), a romance she started in graduate school at The University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop. On June 19, her 21st book, “The Perfect Couple,’’ goes on sale, a murder mystery about a maid of honor found floating face-down in Nantucket Harbor the morning of a fancy wedding. So, what first drew Hilderbrand to this elbow of sand 23 miles off Cape Cod? “I grew up spending summers in Brewster at my family’s house,’’ says the mother of three. “I had been to the Vineyard and thought, you know what, I’m going to Nantucket, and when the ferry pulled into Nantucket Harbor, I said, ‘Oh, my goodness, this place is so gorgeous, I never am leaving.’ ’’ What … [Read more...] about Elin Hilderbrand on living in Nantucket: ‘What I write about in my novels is also what’s in my life.’
Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan says working with quarterback Tom Brady and “his guy” has changed his career. Speaking to host Sean Delaney during a recent episode of the podcast, “What Got You There with Sean Delaney,” Hogan explained how practicing what Brady preaches has altered his training regimen for the better. The 30-year-old didn’t explicitly mention the TB12 Sports Therapy Center at Patriots Place or Brady’s body engineer, Alex Guerrero, but he gave a not-so-subtle shoutout to “the facility they have up there with Brady” and “his guy.” “I mean, it’s changed my career,” Hogan said. “It really has. I’ve really bought into what he talks about and pliability and keeping everything fresh, and it really has. I do it every single day — sometimes twice a day. I don’t think I could play without it anymore. It’s amazing.” Hogan told Delaney he used to be “a big … [Read more...] about Chris Hogan on Tom Brady: ‘I’ve really bought into what he talks about’
Former FBI Director James Comey is opening up about his conversations with President Donald Trump involving the Russian election scandal and the dossier that alleged the president's involvement with prostitutes in 2013.When speaking to then-President-elect Trump and his team about the election scandal, Comey was surprised at how focused they were on the public relations aspect, he said."No one, to my recollection asked, 'So what's coming next from the Russians? How might we stop it?'" he said. "It was all, 'What can we say about what they did, and how it affects the election that we just had?'"As for the dossier, Comey said that he approached the president about it because he believed that it was important that he know. "I started to tell him about the allegation was, that he had been involved with prostitutes in a hotel in Moscow in 2013 during a visit for the Miss Universe pageant and that the Russians had filmed the episode. And he interrupted very defensively, and started talking … [Read more...] about ‘Do I look like a guy who needs hookers?’ Comey recalls Trump’s reaction to dossier
Time magazine recently named “The Silence Breakers” as its 2017 Person of the Year in recognition of the #MeToo movement and the people who have spoken out about sexual assault. Some of the Silence Breakers led to national storylines chronicling the downfall of powerful men who used their positions to commit sexual assaults and get away with it—until now. And some of the Silence Breakers simply tweeted or posted #metoo, often sharing for the first time, with that simple hashtag, a hint at what they’d suffered. From Hollywood to news organizations to elected politicians on both sides of the aisle, and now to the judiciary, the list of the accused keeps growing. The stories being reported and (mostly) believed are ones with significant corroboration. But many men will never be accused or held accountable. Because most sexual assaults occur without the corroboration many people require to move beyond their reaction of “Not him?!” when the perpetrator is … [Read more...] about The judiciary must deal with #MeToo—and with what I know
