She was the first female journalist to report from Vietnam for network TV

Emmy-winning television journalist Marlene Sanders died Tuesday at age 84. The cause of death was cancer.

Her son, The New Yorker staff writer and CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, announced the news on Facebook. “She informed and inspired a generation,” he wrote. “Above all, though, she was a great Mom.”

Sanders was the first female journalist to anchor a primetime newscast in 1966 when she filled in for ABC’s Ron Cochran, and she was also the first female journalist to report from Vietnam for network TV in 1966. A decade later, she became the first female vice-president of a news division.

She began working for CBS as a documentary correspondent and producer in 1978 and remained there nearly decade and won three Emmys. She taught journalism at New York University as an adjunct professor after her broadcast career.

Here’s What LeBron James’ Kids Tell Him When His Team Loses

The basketball star's children don't pull any punches

Nobody gives LeBron James a harder time about his basketball game than his kids.

The Cleveland Cavaliers player stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night and offered the late-night host a sample of the feedback he gets from his children during his off nights: “Daddy, why did you lose?” “Why didn’t you play well tonight?” “It’s your fault you lost.”

We’ll see what they say about his acting skills when he appears in Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck movie, in theaters Friday. For now, watch LeBron play “faceketball” with Fallon — it’s exactly what it sounds like.

Listen to Lana Del Rey’s Cinematic New Song ‘Honeymoon’

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals
Jason Merritt—Getty Images Lana Del Rey attends the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Jan. 11, 2015 in Beverly Hills, Calif.

It's the first taste of the singer's upcoming album

At the start of this year Lana Del Rey warned that her new album, Honeymoon, would be a return to form after exploring her bluesier side on last year’s Ultraviolence (which TIME named as one of the best albums of 2014). Perhaps her soundtrack contributions to last year’s Big Eyes put her in a cinematic mood, because the just-released title track leans closer to the sounds of her breakthrough LP Born to Die than the material she cooked up with the Black Keys’ Dan Auderbach. The characteristically broody “Honeymoon” even appears to reference her earlier work in its lyrics, with Del Rey calling the lover she’s singing about “Mr. Born to Lose.”

Then again, she also alludes to his “history of violence” and the “guns that blaze around him”—clearly, you can take Lana out of the Ultraviolence, but you can’t take the Ultraviolence out of Lana. Hear the studio version of the song, which she’s been teasing since last month, below:

Boy Scouts of America Set to Allow Gay Leaders

The BSA's National Executive Board will decide on July 27

An executive committee for Boy Scouts of America unanimously voted to get rid of the organization’s ban on gay adult leaders and volunteers on Monday, paving the way for the organization to become as inclusive for adults as it now is for youth.

The Scouts’ National Executive Board, which governs the body, will now vote on the resolution on July 27, and their decision will go into effect immediately, according to activist group Scouts for Equality.

In addition to allowing gay or bisexual adults to work and volunteer in the BSA, the resolution allows previously removed leaders to apply for their former positions. It also allows each individual troop or unit to determine its own eligibility policies concerning gay leaders, while blocking non-troop organizations and regional governing bodies from discriminating against volunteers or employees on the basis of sexual orientation. The BSA board lifted the ban on openly gay youth serving in the program on January 1 2014.

“For decades, the Boy Scouts of America’s ban on gay adults has stood as a towering example of explicit, institutional homophobia in one of America’s most important and recognizable civic organizations,” Zach Wahls, an Eagle Scout and the Executive Director of Scouts for Equality, said in a statement. “While this policy change is not perfect—BSA’s religious chartering partners will be allowed to continue to discriminate against gay adults—it is difficult to overstate the importance of today’s announcement.”

Kristen Stewart on Her ‘Feral’ Post-Twilight Life

Kristen Stewart's August Marie Claire cover hits newsstands July 21.

"I lit my universe on fire and I watched it burn"

Kristen Stewart is done apologizing for being herself.

“Lately, I’ve been doing less of the ‘I’m sooooo sorry.’ And more of the ‘No. F-ck. Jesus,’” she tell Marie Claire in the new August cover story that explores how the actress survived the intense and often cruel public scrutiny that came with her Twilight breakout.

“I lit my universe on fire and I watched it burn,” she tells the magazine. “Speaking very candidly, it was a really traumatic period in my early 20s that kick-started something in me that was a bit more feral … I’m really proud that I am able to move forward and not fall into every mental crater. That’s a new thing for me. Age has made me smarter and calmer. And it is f-cking awesome.”

Stewart also opens up about a period of self-sabotage that occurred between the ages of 15 and 20. “I was constantly anxious,” she says of that time in her life. “I was kind of a control freak. If I didn’t know how something was going to turn out, I would make myself ill, or just be locked up or inhibited in a way that was really debilitating.”

Watch Jack Black in the New Trailer for Goosebumps

The movie comes out just in time for Halloween

The upcoming Goosebumps movie isn’t an adaptation of one of the wildly popular children’s horror books by R.L. Stine, but a movie about the books themselves—with a fantastical twist.

Jack Black stars as an exaggerated version of the author who keeps the monsters and ghosts he writes about locked up in his Goosebump manuscripts. When new next-door neighbor Zach (Dylan Minnette) accidentally releases the beasts from their binding, he and his friends have to use their knowledge of the books to re-capture them.

See the just-released trailer, above, and catch the film just in time for Halloween when it opens Oct. 16.

Donald Trump Says He’ll ‘Win the Latino Vote’ By Creating Jobs

He also called Hillary Clinton the worst Secretary of State in history

Presidential hopeful Donald Trump says Latinos “love” him and that he’ll win their vote in 2016 despite controversial comments he made about Mexican immigrants that cost him his business relationships with the likes of NBC, Univision, Macy’s and NASCAR.

“I’ll win the Latino vote because I’ll create jobs,” he told NBC News on Wednesday. “I’ll create jobs and the Latinos will have jobs they didn’t have. I’ll do better on that vote than anybody. I will win that vote.”

In his first campaign announcement in June, Trump said, “When Mexico sends its people, they are not sending their best … they are bringing drugs and they are bringing crime, and they’re rapists.” He’s since repeatedly stood by his comments and shrugged off his former business partners, calling them “weak.”

In the interview, he also took swipes at Hillary Clinton.

“In the history of the U.S. there’s never been a Secretary as bad as Hillary,” he said. “The world blew up around us, we lost everything, including all relationships. There wasn’t one good thing that came out of that administration or her being Secretary of State.”

London Braces for Massive Transit Strike

Four unions are taking part in 24-hour strikes regarding the terms and pay of a new weekend night service

Approximately 20,000 workers of London’s underground train network, commonly known as the Tube, will stage a walk-out beginning Wednesday and lasting till Thursday, one of the unions involved in the strike says.

Members of four different unions are striking following disputes over the terms and pay conditions of the London Underground’s weekend night service that’s scheduled to begin in September, BBC News reports. Three unions will begin their walk-outs at 6:30 pm local time, with the fourth following three hours later. The strikes are expected to last for 24 hours.

“We are very clear that it is unacceptable and unjustified,” a spokesperson for Prime Minister David Cameron said in a statement. “It is going to hit families, workers, and businesses across the capital.”

London’s governing transportation body, Transport for London, says extra buses and river boats would be dispatched during the strikes.
