Shielding Scott Rudin: How the Super-Producer Avoided Answering for Abusive Behavior for Decades

BY TATIANA SIEGEL | HollywoodReporter.Com Troy Warren for CNT Rudin relied on intimidation, NDAs and industry relationships to continue his bullying: "I find it impossible to imagine that people who worked with him more than one day would miss any of that. People just ignored it." In September 2019, Eric Emauni was rolling calls when his boss, Scott Rudin, ordered him to get media mogul Barry Diller on the line. Immediately. So the assistant did just that. The only problem was Rudin wasn’t quite ready for the call. It was a cruel game the producer played with his staff, leaving them to…

How to create a puddle that butterflies will love

How to create a puddle that butterflies will love

By Walter Reeves, For the AJC Troy Warren for CNT Q: I saw your YouTube video about creating a butterfly puddling station with sand and composted manure. Can you use worm castings instead of composted manure? Judy Van Kuren, Cleona, Pennsylvania A: Yes, worm castings have enough micro nutrients and other salts to keep butterflies healthy when they visit. Making an artificial puddle for butterflies is one of the best ways to have them stand still for a bit so you can admire them. All it takes is a wide, shallow saucer, some sand, and some composted manure (or worm castings or Milorganite).…

Business travel faces long road to recovery from pandemic

By Kelly Yamanouchi, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Troy Warren for CNT Atlanta’s economic fortunes linked to corporate trips, conventions American leisure air travel is bouncing back quickly after plunging last year. But it could take months or years for business travel to return to normal — if ever — even as more companies prepare to bring workers back to offices.

The One Circumstance When You Actually Should Rinse Your Cooked Pasta

The One Circumstance When You Actually Should Rinse Your Cooked Pasta

By Sara Tane | FoodAndWine.Com Troy Warren for CNT Yes, there’s a time and place for rinsing your noodles. Preparing dry pasta is as straightforward of a cooking method as they come. You bring some heavily salted water to a boil, you drop in your pasta and cook it to your desired doneness (al dente for a little bite or fully cooked through), and then maybe you reserve some pasta water before draining the noodles. See? Simple, easy, boom, done. No questions asked. Most pasta recipes would never instruct you to rinse your pasta after cooking it. For a lot of folks, the mere thought…
