As such, there is no dedicated events staff. The Week Live was organized under Nikki Ettore, integrated marketing director at The Week, and the events were curated by editorial leadership at the magazine, including Frumin. It’s the live embodiment of a print magazine: recipes, restaurant reviews, and interviews with theater and Hollywood stars — brought away from the privileged world of the journalist, and made tangible for the magazine’s audience. “We wanted to really stretch our legs,” Ben Frumin, editor-in-chief of TheWeek.com, tells Folio:. The Week has a rate base of 550,000, with 7.2 million monthly uniques on TheWeek.com. It’s a drop in the bucket when compared to a magazine like The New Yorker, with a rate base of 1,025,000, and its own competing events series, The New Yorker Festival, on October 7-9. While the team intends to make such events a fixture, Tara Mitchell, VP of marketing, says the current revenues will not significantly impact the company’s bottom line. And despite industry trends to the contrary, Frumin says the events are an addition to the magazine, not a supplement. “We always want to think about our audience first,” Frumin says. “We have this tremendous magazine. It’s a little weird. It’s idiosyncratic. That’s why it’s so successful, the fact that it is different. So we really wanted it to be an experience where our audience was involved.” Nonetheless, it’s the quality of The Week’s readers which may just make The Week Live a successful endeavor. The Week is getting a taste of live events. Sunday, the small, punchy news digest launched its three-part event series, The Week Live, with a high-brow live cooking class and meal at the Michelin star restaurant Bâtard. “Still to this day, I’ll tell people where I work, and seven or eight out of ten will say, ‘What’s that?’ And the other two or three will say, ‘The Week is the best!” Frumin tells Folio:. “Our readers are straight up evangelical about the magazine, so we also want to serve these people who already love The Week.” “We are a scrappy and relatively small company and we all work on a lot of things. We take pride in that,” Frumin says. “We’re smaller than our competitors and we punch above our weight class.” “We are never going to be an events-first business,” Frumin says. “But we do hope that going forward this will be a great business opportunity.” Tonight, attendees will visit Broadway to see Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, followed by a Q&A hosted by The Week’s managing editor, Carolyn O’Hara. On Thursday, guests will see a special screening of My Blind Brother along with a Q&A by Frumin himself. With only 400 spots, and a cost of $425 for an all-access pass, The Week Live isn’t built for market saturation. Instead, it’s the wave of a hand to advertisers and potential readers who don’t yet see the brand as a place to go for curated, tasteful cultural news.

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales.

However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

ABCD – American Born Confused DesiTwitterDirector Sanjeev Reddy’s Telugu movie ABCD – American Born Confused Desi starring Allu Sirish and Rukshar Dhillon, has received mixed review and rating from the audience around the world.ABCD – American Born Confused Desi is a comedy drama and it is a remake of the Malayalam film of the same name. Madhura Sreedhar Reddy and Yash Rangineni have produced the movie under the banner Madhura Entertainment. The film has received a U certificate from the censor board and its runtime is 2.25 hours.ABCD movie story: The film is about a spoilt brat (Allu Sirish) from New York. His father (Nagababu) decides to teach his slacker son a lesson of responsibility. He cuts all his financial resources and tricks him into return to the city. How he rebuilds his life from scratch forms the crux of its story.Analysis: Sanjeev Reddy has made some minor changes in the original screenplay to suit the taste of local movie buffs. The first half of the movie is routine and slow and some comedy scenes keep you engaged here. The second half is no better than the first half, say the audience.Performances: Allu Sirish has delivered good performance, which is the highlight of ABCD. Rukshar Dhillon has done good job and her chemistry with the hero is one of the attractions of the film. Nagendra Babu, Master Bharath and Kota Srinivasa Rao have done justice to their roles, say the audience.Technical: ABCD has good production values and music, picturisation, action and dialogues are the attractions on the technical front, add the viewers.ABCD movie review live updates: We bring you some viewers’ verdict on the film shared on Twitter. Continue to see audience’s response.V ı N A Y C H A G A N T I @VinayChaganti0 #ABCD #ABCDMovie watchable film. @AlluSirish anna this time U Rock the show with ease.
