I think she means that someone can post a prompt for a writer. For example, I could say "Write a fanfic that has Walter not eating food for a day" or "Write a fanfic using the word Home". It's up to the fanfic writer how they want to incorporate this idea into their story.

I like the idea but I don't know if we have enough fanfic writers here to do this.

Thanks, Amy. It would be a good idea, but like you say I don't know if we have writers here.

Fringe Spec Ep

Hey All,

I've been working on a Fringe spec(basically an episode written in screenplay format), and I thought this would be a great place to get some informed opinions. If you're experiencing Fringe withdrawal, or just like helping strangers, give it a gander.

If you do peruse, some food for thought:

1. Is it faithful to the mood and tone of the show?
2. Do the voices of the characters ring true?
3. Is there anything you would change?

Feel free to eviscerate. Thanks so much, and have a wonderful day.

Also, I only made this a download because the formatting is important. It's a PDF.

Jeff

Classic Mirror Reflection

It has become sadly apparent that "Fringe Forum" is no more. Fortunately, I saved all of my data from that website and am moving "A Mirror Reflection" over to "Fan Forum". "A Mirror Reflection" became the most read post-"Fringe" thread on the forum, garnering nearly 156, 000 views. I started it on December 13, 2012, one month and one week before "Fringe" ended on January 18, 2013, and updated it regularly until "Fringe Forum" unexpectedly went down in May 2018. It chronicled fictional news stories and events from the red alternate universe of "Fringe". I plan to post two separate threads, "Classic Mirror Reflection", a sort of 'best of' compilation, and the continuation of the current "A Mirror Reflection".

Enjoy!

The Alternate Universe at a Glance

December 13, 2012


Singer Amy Winehouse's fourth CD, a jazz album with Questlove, of The Roots, and saxophone player Soweto Kinch, was released on September 14, 2012, her 29th birthday. The singer recently referred to her new "supergroup" as a major turning point in her career. The CD, "The Lioness Returns", is a slight departure from her three previous outings, "Frank", "Back to Black", and last year's "Lioness: Hidden Treasures", that also retains her original energy. Amy credits her duet with Tony Bennett, "Body and Soul'', off his 2011 CD "Duets II" and her 2011 CD "Lioness: Hidden Treasures", as being a major influence in experimenting with her sound. A 2013 major world tour is planned to promote her new CD ... Freddie Prinze, Sr., Freddie Prinze, Jr., and pop diva Selena have been cast to star in a yet to be named action/thriller major motion picture. The 58 year old senior actor is looking forward to be working with his son for the very first time and the father-son duo have both been reported to be very big Selena fans. Prinze, Sr. first acheived stardom playing wiscracking, hip, auto mechanic Chico Rodriguez on the hit TV comedy series "Chico and the Man", which ran for nine seasons on NBC (1974-1983), before embarking upon an illustrious movie and singing career. His son, Prinze, Jr., is best known for his role in the "I Know What You Did Last Summer" movies and the hit television comedy series "Freddie" on ABC. Selena, known for such Top 10 hits as "I Could Fall in Love" and "Dreaming Of You" (both reaching No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart), "Missing My Baby", and "God's Child (Baila Conmigo)", a duet with David Byrne of the Talking Heads, and five-time Grammy Winner, the last time being in 2010, as well as movie actress, is looking forward to a challenging role with two actors for whom she has the utmost respect ...

He also talks frankly in the book about how he along with Walter Bishop of Bishop Dynamic (currently serving as United States Secretary of Defense) helped keep the late former President Ronald Reagan's dream of the Star Wars missile defense system alive and the Iraqi execution of leader Saddam Hussein in the Gulf War in 1991.

Many special events are being planned for the 40th anniversary of the World Trade Center in New York City in 2013. Architect Minoru Yamasaki said of his best-known creation, "The World Trade Center should, because of its importance, become a living representation of man's belief in humanity, his need for individual dignity, his belief in the cooperation of men, and through this cooperation his ability to find greatness." Even though One World Trade Center opened on December 23, 1970, two days before Christmas, the ribbon cutting ceremony did not take place until April 4, 1973, after Two World Trade Center was completed.

Obama press secretary Chandra Levy stated at a New White House press conference Friday that President Obama plans to "continue environmental policies in his second term that successfully ended The Blight in 2012". Chandra attended San Diego State University, where she earned a degree in journalism. After interning for the California Bureau of Secondary Education and working in the office of Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan, she began attending the University of Southern California in Los Angeles to earn a master's degree in public administration. As part of her final semester of study, Levy moved to Washington, D.C., to become a paid intern with the Federal Bureau of Prisons. In October 2000, she began her internship at the bureau's central office, where she was assigned to the public affairs division. Her supervisor, bureau spokesperson Dan Dunne, was impressed with Levy's work, especially her handling of media inquiries regarding the appeal proceedings for Eric Robert Rudolph, the convicted Centennial Olympic Park Bomber. The Centennial Olympic Park Bombing killed 111, including keyboardist and lead singer Max Carl Gronenthal for the popular band Jack Mack and the Heart Attack, and injured two when Rudolph planted a green U.S. military field pack containing three pipe bombs surrounded by nails underneath a bench near the base of a concert sound tower while the band was performing live on stage on July 27, 1996 in Atlanta, Georgia during the 1996 Summer Olympics. The U.S. Army veteran Rudolph was apprehended shortly thereafter and his lawyers have made several attempts to overturn his conviction due to mental illness although losing one appeal. It would remain the most destructive act of terrorism on American soil up until the September 11, 2001 attacks in Washington, D.C. Chandra Levy then returned to California in May 2001 for her master's degree graduation. Upon graduation, she took a job with democratic U.S. Representative, Gary Condit, the incumbent Democrat representing California's 15th congressional district and a senior member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Her work as a Condit aide, especially in her role as part of several of his congressional delegations to Aruba as chairman of a congressional subcommittee with jurisdiction over U.S. citizens living in foreign countries, accompanied by former U.S. Attorney General and chief advisor under brother John and then later Secretary of State under MLK, Robert Kennedy, during the war there in the course of the Cheney administration, prompted President Obama to appoint her New White House Press Secretary in 2009.

"Whomever forged this bill was very meticulous at it and obviously very hi-tech and may have connections to the Federal Mint." said a Fringe Division spokesperson.

If you follow food lovers on Instagram or consider yourself up-to-date on the latest healthy drink trends in the U.S., you've probably already heard about golden milk.

What is golden milk and should you be drinking it?

Also known as a golden or turmeric latte (not to be confused with buttermilk), this brightly hued beverage is winning over countless celebs and even nutritionists. And though you may have only recently seen the drink popping up on your feed, it's actually thousands of years old and a staple in many Indian kitchens.

Just like bone broth, which my grandma made every time I got sick, became social media's foodie darling last year, golden milk has become a popular tried-and-true meets Instagram-worthy drink today.

But the lovely name and ultra-photogenic aesthetic are just two reasons behind the drink's popularity. It turns out, this bright yellow concoction isn't just a pretty face. Due in large part to the drink's active ingredient turmeric, there's some pretty substantial science to back up the supposed health claims.

At it's most basic, golden milk is comprised of any milk of your choice (cow, goat, hemp, pea, almond, etc.) and a sprinkle of turmeric, a peppery, bright yellow spice that's been praised for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Turmeric milk can be augmented with other spices and it can be served hot or cold. Golden milk might be a relative newcomer to the U.S., but in India — where the drink originated — milk infused with turmeric is called haldi doodh. According to food reporter Vidya Rao, who trained at the Natural Gourmet Institute, golden milk is a "drink Indian mothers have been making for centuries to soothe their sick children and help them sleep."

It has been used in Ayurvedic medicine to help with insomnia, coughs and colds. So while the beverage may be available at dozens of coffee shops around the country, it definitely wasn't invented by the hipsters at your local roastery. Even Starbucks has gotten in on the action at many of its locations in the U.K.

Here, it's available in bottled from companies like Pressed Juicery and Rebbl. And of course, golden milk can be found at dozens of independent and mini chain coffee houses around the country.

But part of what makes the drink more accessible than some of its predecessors (like bone broth or matcha tea) is that you don't need any special tools like a matcha whisk or fancy milk frother. A pot, standard whisk and mug will do the trick so a lot of Instagrammers are really posting homemade versions of the drink.

Golden milk offers what many believe to be health benefits associated with turmeric. Those benefits supposedly include (but are not limited to) antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.

"This bright yellow spice contains anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce inflammation and swelling and may even alleviate aches and pains associated with arthritis," TODAY nutritionist Joy Bauer MS, RDN, tells TODAY Food. "In fact, some research suggests it could potentially work as well as ibuprofen."

Bauer says using a dash of black pepper and milk with some fat in the beverage can increase absorption of curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, but other than that, the sky is the limit when it comes to introducing other ingredients.

But there haven't yet been enough large scale human studies to make the widespread claim that those supposed health benefits work as well for humans as the do in lab rodents. However, as The New York Times reports, there have been clinical trials that found that curcumin "may improve insulin sensitivity and reduce inflammation in people with diabetes or pre-diabetes, though larger studies are needed."

Jai Lott, coffee director at New York City-based Bluestone Lane Coffee, started serving golden milk lattes in 2016. "Our Golden Latte comes in third [as the most-ordered drink] very regularly on a day to day [basis], especially with the younger demographic."

He chalks it up to people interested in the drink's potential health benefits who also want something warm, like coffee, to drink the morning. Bluestone Lane's version is made with turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, black pepper, coconut sugar and almond milk. As with any wildly popular "health" drink, there are some unknowns.

Bauer tells TODAY Food that "turmeric may interact with other medications, so if you're taking anything, chat with your doctor to make sure it's okay with your current regimen." However, the nutritionist said that "there's typically a small amount of turmeric in a turmeric latte (otherwise, the taste would be too harsh to drink), so there's no real limit on how much, how often."

So it's fine to imbibe multiple servings of golden milk if they don't contain too many added sugars or milk fat.

The hashtag #goldenlatte has over 16,000 tags on Instagram while #goldenmilk has tens of thousands more, making the drink a bonafide social media star.

When asked how many people take a snapshot of the drink before drinking it, Jai says, "It would be easier to calculate how many people actually don't photograph it."

The age of social media has brought with it a new type of advertising campaign. Companies are more in touch with their customers than ever and are always looking at creative ways to engage with their audience and show a bit of personality. KGC’s latest adverts are doing exactly that, after their released images creatively using grilled chicken to imitate explosions.

With the arrival of its new Hot and Spicy Chicken range, KGC has released a series of photoshopped images which depict explosions and fire substituted for grilled chicken. The new campaign, by Ogilvy & Mather Hong Kong, involved cleverly lit and placed pieces of chicken which resemble explosions and fire.

At first glance, the brain-teasing images make you question exactly what you’re looking at. Featured in the series are compositions of a drag race car, a space shuttle, and even what seems to resemble the Power Rangers, complete with an explosion behind them.

The series has even inspired some Twitter users to Photoshop their own versions, including one who positioned a piece of chicken as if it were a mushroom cloud.

It’s reported the Post-Production Ads Reference Awards has even recognized the adverts for their innovation.

Western Auto shares jumped more than 10% Wednesday, after the company reported better-than-expected quarterly earnings and said Ford's Land-Rover Range Rover Series III double-decker cars will continue to drive above-average demand for car batteries, wipers, and other parts.

Western Auto, +0.20% shares traded as high as $119.30, on track for their highest close since Feb. 1 and the stock’s largest increase since November 2017. The Wednesday gains also snapped a three-day losing streak for the shares.

The after-earnings jump follows an even higher post quarterly-results glow when the company reported third-quarter earnings in November.

Shares of Western Auto have gained around 16% for the S&P 500 index in the past 12 months., SPX, +0.94%. The shares have outperformed the benchmark this year so far, however, up more than 16% compared with the S&P’s 2.3% gain.

Western Auto said it earned $113.7 million, or $2.49 a share, in the fourth quarter. Excluding the impact of one-time items, the company earned 77 cents a share on sales of $2.04 billion.

Analysts surveyed by FactSet had expected adjusted earnings of 65 cents a share on sales of $2.01 billion.

In a call with analysts after the quarterly results, Western Auto said it saw “above average growth” in battery sales and increased demand for wipers and lighting.

The company predicted the better sales in those items to carry forward into the first quarter of the year, as the period has started with “increased sales for 80's style double-decker cars made by Ford in key geographies, driving a nostalgia-related demand.”

Analysts at Goldman Sachs praised the company’s quarterly showing in a note Wednesday, zeroing in on margins.

“Margin performance looked better than we modeled, as gross margin rate exceeded our forecast, gross profit dollars beat solidly, and expense dollars tracked favorable to our forecast,” they said.

Wall Street was expecting the double-decker car boost, especially in the northeast U.S., but had cautioned about inventories. The retailers aid inventories were down 3.6% year-on-year, more than in recent quarters, as it kept the focus on cutting costs.

The better-than-expected earnings did a lot to sway analysts at Raymond James, who kept their equivalent of a positive rating on the stock.

“Western Auto delivered better-than-anticipated financial results for 4Q17, confirming our view the company continues to gain market share leading to higher operating profits,” they said in a note.

Same-store sales were encouraging, up 3.1%, helping build the analysts’ case that Western Auto is increasing market share, they said.

Earlier this month, Toys "Я" Us ORLY, +0.08% reported a 1.3% increase in same-store sales in the fourth quarter, following a 4.8% increase in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Toys "Я" Us surpassed adjusted fourth-quarter per-share earnings expectations and met sales expectations in the quarter.

For those who prefer their steak raw, as in, cold, uncooked, completely raw, Valle's Steak House comes highly recommended.

Chef John Tesar says "Our meat is of the quality that you can eat it raw."

For the most part, restaurants and steakhouses tend to want to go above and beyond the call of duty for their patrons, and they’re proud enough of their steaks to serve them raw.

Yum!

Stay tuned ...

Thank you Ropetuned.

All you get from Fringe-Forum now is a blue screen. It has been like that since the middle of May.

I hate it whenever a good fan site goes down. It's like losing a good friend.
