I feel I’m incredibly privileged. I’m in a very happy relationship, I have three gorgeous children, I’m in a profession that I love. So I suppose any hardship or intensity that I may feel, it all feels very minor. But certainly, I think it’s those moments where you feel you’re about to make a compromise, or those moments where you feel that you’ve said ‘yes’ to too many things, in a way, and you’re about to let somebody down, and then when you have to say no to someone. When I’ve thrown too many balls up into the air and I can’t juggle them all. [x]

She removes her wig, her eyelashes, her makeup, never breaking eye contact with the reflection of her natural self. It’s an intimate, powerful moment television doesn’t often show: A black woman removing all the elements white supremacy tells her she has to wear to be beautiful, successful, powerful. And let’s not forget that that wasn’t just Annalise taking it off: It was Davis, too—Davis, who remains brave in a world where a New York Times critic can get away with calling her ‘less classically beautiful.’x

The Ancient Town of Fenghuang, China

The town of Fenghuang is located in the Hunan province in China along the banks of the Tuo Jiang River. The town is exceptionally well-preserved and relatively untouched by modern urbanization.

The legacy of the Ming and Qing dynasties are preserved within the town, spanning 300 years of ancient heritage. In the ancient town zone, preservation of over 200 residential buildings, 30 streets, and hundreds of other ancient features and landmarks of the town has continued for hundreds of years.

Because of its unique geographical location, Fenghuang never suffered from the destruction of any natural disaster or suffered invasion from any wars. Even during the war of resistance against Japanese invasion, the isolated town of Fenghuang did not suffer occupation. In 1949, Fenghuang was peacefully liberated.

In the following 50 years, Fenghuang was spared any large-scale construction that occurred in nearby districts. As the people of Fenghuang cherish their valuable heritage, the local government has conducted strict control over all construction, continuing the preservation and the authenticity of the ancient town.

The Bi-Curious Case of Amy Landecker

"I crushed on a lot of people, and I felt very alive… I don’t want to upset someone’s girlfriend, but there were people on set that I would have absolutely gone out with that I had not considered before in my life,” Landecker says of her newfound awareness. “I feel completely open. I was not really schooled in toys and things that would allow your sexual appetites to be satisfied regardless of the gender of the person that you’re with. When you’re involved in the spectrum of sexuality that this show covers, and that we have people participating in and getting to know, you realize that you can be very easily attracted and very easily satisfied in a lot of different scenarios.”
