The first Avatar sequel will be called Avatar: The Way of Water, Disney announced Wednesday at CinemaCon, perhaps the biggest indication yet that the long-delayed movie is actually going to be released on December 16th. And we might have even more potential proof soon, as the first teaser trailer is set to debut alongside Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which premieres on May 6th.

Here is Disney’s synopsis of the film, which is quite vague:

Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, Avatar: The Way of Water begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids), the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive, and the...

A ‘liveable future’ depends on slashing emissions this decade, major climate report finds

The world needs to slash greenhouse gas emissions in half this decade, a landmark new United Nations report urges. To reach that goal, the globe needs to make a speedy shift to clean energy, reduce energy use, and deploy technologies that can trap some of our planet-heating carbon dioxide pollution, the report’s authors say.

“We are at a crossroads. The decisions we make now can secure a liveable future,” Hoesung Lee, chair of the UN Intergovernmental Panel Panel on Climate Change, said in a press release. “We have the tools and know-how required to limit warming.”

Hundreds of leading climate scientists participated in the report, which outlines what’s needed to avoid all-out climate catastrophe. It boils...

I realized in the 90s (when I was a teenager) that this was a big issue and have been waiting for the world to act ever since. A big part of becoming an adult has unfortunately been me getting more and more jaded about us actually dealing with it before it's too late.

Single Moms Buy A House Together In Washington, D.C.

1 Comment and 3 Shares

Mom friends Holly Harper and Herrin Hopper used to joke about creating a mom commune in Vermont and letting their spouses visit periodically.

Then they both got divorced. And the logistics of being a single parent, plus the costs of living in the Washington, D.C. area, hit them along with the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Holly and I said, 'Why not do this?'" Hopper recalled in an interview with TODAY's Sheinelle Jones. "Within a weekend we found this house."

The two single moms found another two women, and they all moved in to the four-unit house, sharing the ups and downs of life while also raising their children together. It's not a commune, and it's not traditional extended family living, but the women say it's something pretty special.

"There is almost a spiritual safety net every day here," Hopper said. "I could be my worst self, I could be my best self, and they see me for who I am, and it's OK."

Harper said she always felt like she had to follow traditional rules in life. The opportunity to move in with her friend came at a time when she'd just gotten divorced, she'd recently turned 40 and her dad had died.

"Just like my life was burned to the ground," she recalled feeling. "I could turn to Herrin and say, 'I literally have nothing left. Let’s just do this.'"

Since moving in with her friend, she said she's realized: "You can do whatever you want. Burn the rulebook of life and just look at it differently."

Of course, things sometimes get messy.

“We don’t know whose socks are whose ... socks everywhere,” Hopper said. “iPads, dishes, cups. There’s a lot of exchanging that occurs. Usually not planned.”

The kids, ages 9 through 14, have built-in friends: They have a cousin-like relationship with each other, Harper said.

“There’s always someone to play a game with,” for the kids, Harper said. “It’s just the most fun.”

And for single moms, the co-housing arrangement offers an usual level of freedom. If someone wants to go for a run, they can do so knowing there are other adults around for their children.

On a practical level, they have regular “homeowners meetings” where they discuss issues like roof repair and yard work expenses, often over a bottle of champagne.

They call their house the "Siren House," named after the mythical creatures who would lure sailors to their deaths with beautiful songs. Same vibe, just without the whole "luring people to their death" thing.

They field questions all the time from single moms who want a similar co-housing arrangement. They hope to expand the concept to other moms.

"Siren is a form of sort of feminist power, right?" Hopper said. "We’re building a community, we sort of have the siren song so we bring people together."
