Macy’s Fires Donal Trump Too

The list of businesses that are dissociating themselves with Trump is growing. In the latest move, Macy’s department stores have decided that they will no longer carry the Trump line of clothing and ties in any of their stores. WhenMacy’s fired Trump, Donald was quick to go on the offensive and say that he in fact ended the relationship with them. This sounds familiar to what was said after NBC cancelled three Trump shows earlier in the week.

According to Brian Torchin, the department store took offense to comments Donald Trump made about Mexican immigrants being killers and rapists. The spokesperson for Macy’s said that they are severing ties with all Donald Trump products because they do not feel that Macy’s shares those same opinions. Trump was quick to respond to the department store, saying he was already in talks with them about pulling his products from the chain because he is unhappy that they are manufacturing the ties in China and not here in the United States.

Some question Trump that if he was unhappy with the production of his merchandise, why did he wait until now to break off the relationship. Regardless, Macy’s is just another in a long list of companies that do not want to be associated with the presidential candidate as his campaign kicks into high gear. Trump appears to be getting positive reaction however, as his ratings went from 4% to 12% in the presidential race.

“Jurassic World” Breaking Records

The film “Jurassic World” has been breaking box office records since it was released three weeks ago. During its third weekend in theaters it made over $54 million. The film’s earnings were among the highest ever in box office sales when it opened the first weekend. “Jurassic World” is still on a roll, earning even more by its third weekend out in theaters. So far it has grossed about $500 million in domestic sales. Internationally, the film has grossed $737 million so far.While at the top of the highest grossing movies ever, it is not the highest. Movie lovers like Alexei Beltyukov agree that it joins the ranks behind films such as “Titanic”, “The Dark Knight”, “Avatar”, and “The Avengers”.

The latest installment in the “Jurassic Park” series stars new Hollywood hunk Chris Pratt and is directed by Colin Trevorrow. By all accounts, the film is a fun watch. Many people have gone to see it multiple times in the theater, helping drive up the ticket sales.
“Jurassic World” beat out “Ted 2″, “Inside Out”, and “Spy” which all opened this past weekend. “Ted 2″, which stars Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried, and Seth MacFarlane, grossed about 40% lower than was anticipated.

The Retail Industry and Visual Search

Have you ever been in a situation where you saw something and wanted it? Of course you have and this statement is truer for fashion than anything else. The Spice Girls started the trend of flat platforms (or ‘flatforms” as they are now called) back in 90s and 25 years later, that trend is still going strong. Back in those days, there weren’t smartphones and you couldn’t click a picture of Britney Spears’ flatforms so that you could get one for yourself. But now, you can. And it is all thanks to a technology called ‘Visual Search’.

Fashion Is Synonymous With Trends – A simple one-off garment goes from an outfit to a statement to a trend in a matter of minutes in this visually driven age. It is not just with celebrities but even street fashion inspires mainstream designers to dedicate entire collections to something as simple as a color. Of course, the media, Hollywood and stars have a lot of influence on what people wear but that is not all. One second your cerulean tank top is just another item in the wardrobe and the next second, Scarlett Johansson is seen wearing something similar, and boom! Off goes the trend. This is why Visual Search is going to change the future of retail – it is going to make trendsetting much easier.

Visual Search Leads to Quick Popularity – People not only emulate their idols in terms of likes and dislikes but they also want to wear what their favorite stars are wearing. Some stars wear clothes like the rest of the world, and yet, they manage to set trends because fans want the exact T-shirt or capri pant that they saw in a particular event on their idol. Visual search is going to have a huge influence on retail because it is going to make or break brands overnight. The best example is the “dressgate” incident. After the blue or gold debate was settled, the designer got orders for hundreds of the same dress.

Small Brands Can Now Compete With Big Names – The thing with fashion is that brand name pays a lot in the short and long run. There are some brands that are so trusted that for some people, it’s the name that counts and not the style of clothing. This is nothing new because brand names are used for making a statement. However, small and independent designers get the raw end of the deal in this case because it takes them years to make a name for themselves. With visual search, however, fame would come overnight.

Slyce is one such company that is a pioneer in visual search and has understood the true potential that this technology would have over the world in the future. The Slyce app is also a neat tool for using visual search to explore the retail world like you’ve never done it before. In a way, companies like Slyce and technologies like Visual Search are making the world a fast shrinking place.

‘Meg’ Ready to Roll with Director Eli Roth

The movie business has a way of harnessing what is popular and churning out productions to capitalize on those trends. With “Jurassic World” earning a serious amount of cash at the box office, audiences can likely expect a few more dinosaur or extinct animal movies to start trickling into theaters. The appeal of massive monsters causing havoc on human populations dates back to Godzilla and even King-Kong. However, one studio has decided to aim a bit lower in territory unfamiliar to human eyes.

According to Screen Rant, Warner Bros. is putting a lot of effort behind a prehistoric shark movie and has tapped Eli Roth to direct “Meg.” Literary fans likely remember the book from author Steve Alten that deal with extremely large sharks. Similar to the massive underwater beast seen on screen in “Jurassic World,” the sharks will likely get some serious screen time. While the studio did not cite the success of the dinosaur romp as the key force to get “Meg” rolling, it probably did not hurt the momentum of the film either.

Shark movies have a somewhat uneven history at the box office, but tying in the prehistoric and rare storyline could push this project over the top. Until more news breaks about cast and story the film is going to be a hot topic in Hollywood according to what Handy employees have been reading. The mammoth monster genre is apparently back again, and audiences might be impressed with this series of films.

Kristen Stewart Reportedly in Same-Sex Relationship

To be or not to be… in a same-sex relationship, that is the question. A question that members of the media across the globe are asking amid rumors that Twilight actress Kristen Stewart is dating galpal, Alica Cargile.

According to the Mirror, Jules Stewart spoke to the press and allegedly ousted her daughter as being in a same-sex relationship. The story claimed that the actress has been canoodling with Cargile, her personal assistant.

Reporter Sharon Feinstein reported that Jules Stewart was “happy for Kristen and accepting of her girlfriend.”

Jules has since denied that she claimed her daughter was in such a relationship.

“We never once discussed Kristen,” Jules stated. “The reporter was there to talk about my movie and because it was placed under a LGBT banner, she started asking me about gay rights.”

Feinstein, however, was not having it.

“I understand Jules is claiming that we did not discuss her daughter and her daughter’s relationship,” Feinstein said. “What happened is quite the opposite and I am saddened that a parent would make such open, loving statements and then deny them.”

Stewart has previously been linked romantically to fellow Twilight alum Robert Pattinson. Jaime Garcia Dias thought that relationship was a bit too perfect. Her relationship with Pattinson went south when she was caught on camera having an affair with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.

Sanders was married at the time of the affair and has since divorced.
