A new kids’ show was accused of copying ‘Hair Love.’ Here’s what you need to know

“It’s time to dream it, draw it, make it,” the tiny heroine of Nickelodeon’s new animated preschool series “Made by Maddie” says in its trailer. But the program, scheduled to premiere later this month, is already attracting scrutiny online over its own creative process.

When Nickelodeon shared the series’ trailer and first-look images on Tuesday, social media users were quick to point out that the central character and her parents bear a striking resemblance to the main characters in “Hair Love,” Matthew A. Cherry’s Oscar-winning short about a Black millennial father attempting to style his young daughter’s hair.

The Sony Animation project, which debuted in 2017 as a Kickstarter campaign, has since led to a children’s book and an animated series, currently in development at HBO Max

We Love These Inexpensive, Fun Bikes for College

From Bicycling

Unless you have a legit reason to bring a car with you to school, chances are good the only vehicle you need at college this year is a bicycle. Many campuses are all-inclusive or close to downtown, meaning everything you need access to is within walking—and riding—distance. After all, having a car means finding parking, paying for gas, and maybe even using it late night when it might not be the best idea. Plus, many colleges don’t allow first-year students to keep a car on campus, anyway. So there’s that. We rounded up 10 affordable and reliable bikes to help you cut travel time between classes, run errands faster, and maybe even meet new friends—all while keeping the dreaded freshman 15 at bay.

Check out quick info below of five of the top performers, then scroll deeper for more in-depth reviews of these and other

On International Dog Day, here are the top 10 cars your pooch will love

You can’t miss Kristina Williamson and her goldendoodle in the 2020 Jeep Wrangler.

“Maverick is my copilot,” said Williamson, co-host of “Broadway & Krissy in the Morning” on New Country 93.1 FM in Detroit that airs weekdays from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m.

“I have the doors and top off the Jeep 24/7. He just sits in my passenger seat and watches people go by,” she said. “Everyone smiles at him at stoplights. It’s awesome during a pandemic because we could all use an easy laugh right now, and he brightens up every face that catches him when we’re on our way to adventure.” 

Getting her first dog in April was “kind of perfect,” she said.

Jerry Falwell Jr. denied reports that he had resigned as the president of Liberty University on Monday after a business associate alleged a seven-year consensual sexual relationship involving the influential evangelical figure and his wife.

Falwell Jr. had taken a leave of absence from the university earlier this month after he posted — and later deleted — an Instagram photo of himself on a yacht with his pants unzipped and his arm around a young woman whose pants were similarly opened. Falwell later said the picture was an attempt at a joke.

Giancarlo Granda told Reuters that he first began the alleged affair with Jerry Falwell Jr. and his wife Becki Falwell in March 2012. Granda claimed that he met the Falwells that month at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel, where he had been working

‘If you wanna tell someone you love ’em, today’s the day’

The last thing you expect from an encounter with Bright Eyes is an invitation to get the guns out. “You guys see how strong I am right now?” says Conor Oberst, fragile poet of freak folk, rolling up a sleeve to flex his biceps down the camera. “I mean, I think I’m just getting stronger.”

As his two bandmates start pulling their own strongman shapes and cajoling the interviewer to “take that shirt off!”, our Zoom meeting starts resembling a screenful of scam online dating profiles. But Oberst’s machismo is metaphorical, a nod to his fightback from the abyss. It’s been a tempestuous decade for the sensitive, quiver-voiced intellectual who emerged from Omaha, Nebraska, in 1995 aged just 15 and, with his band Bright Eyes, built a formidable cult following over nine albums of visceral,

I Love My College Students But I’m Terrified To Go Back To My College Classroom

I am a college professor at a state school where almost 30% of the population are first-generation college students, just as I was. I never returned to my office after spring break because we began emergency remote learning—very different than distance learning—to protect the lives of our students and families. Not even my succulents could possibly still be alive on my windowsill. And I am really hoping I hadn’t left any half and half in my tiny fridge.

I have earned tenure and last year was promoted to Professor, so I enjoy a level of security and privilege not shared by the majority of my colleagues. I missed my students, but I also hadn’t gotten to know them all that well yet so I know I failed in connecting more with them.

My husband is a high school physics teacher in a wealthy suburban school outside of Philadelphia. Overnight he
