The fishermen protesting off St. Helier, Jersey hope to reach an agreement with Jersey authorities to keep the same fishing area access to the bay of Granville, or their livelihoods "will not be able to survive"."The problem is that if the large boats can't go far out, they will come closer to the land, so the coastal strip on the French side will be massively reduced. And already the cohabitation is difficult with the trawlers and everyone else. It's going to be difficult to work. It's impossible," the unidentified fisherman said on his boat.Earlier on Thursday, a flotilla of French trawler vessels protesting over the fishing rights had sailed to the Jersey port of St. Helier.The French government was angered when Jersey issued new fishing permits which, according to Paris, impose unfair and unfounded restrictions on French trawlers' access to Channel island fishing grounds.

Jimin and Jin mocked him for it, if that helps, Conan Just a few days after Conan O’Brien set an end date for his TBS late-night series “Conan,” the host was reflecting on his linear TV legacy during Wednesday’s show, unsure he’s made much of an impact thanks to BTS member J-Hope’s flub on a Korean variety series. “Without sounding too highfalutin, I’ve started to wonder a little bit about, gee, 28 years on TV. Day in and way out, every night. What’s my impact been? What have I meant to the world? These are just natural questions, you know?” O’Brien said on Wednesday’s “Conan.” “Have I really made a difference? What’s my legacy going to be on this spinning blue globe called Earth?” Conan then revealed he’d gotten a “hint” of it yesterday, when the ultra-famous BTS played a game on a Korean variety show where they had to identify celebrities by their pictures — and J-Hope incorrectly called him, “Curtain.” Now, even though J-Hope was mercilessly mocked by Jimin and Jin for the mistake and how he could possibly not know who Conan O’Brien is, Conan took the “Curtain” guess pretty hard. “Curtain. He called me Curtain!” O’Brien shouted at sidekick Andy Richter. “Well, it’s like the whole world is convening to wish you well on hour new endeavor and we’re drawing the curtain on–” Richter said. Conan then vows revenge on BTS — while also admitting he has no real way to get revenge on them ever at all. “I’ll get you BTS. Oh, I’ll get you good,” O’Brien said. “And by that I mean I’ll silently resent you, I have no power to do anything to you. You’re going to go on to have huge success. I’m very old and on the way out and you guys are pretty much running the world, so when I say, I’ll get you, I just mean I’m going to stew in my own juices for quite a long time and you’ll be vastly unaware.” Watch the full video above.

“This is the experience theatres were made for,” one critic touts of John Krasinki’s thriller sequel John Krasinski has returned to “A Quiet Place Part II” — if only for the latest trailer. After being delayed for a year, the movie is finally coming to theaters (and according to this trailer, only to theaters). The sequel to Krasinski and wife Emily Blunt’s hit 2018 thriller “A Quiet Place” was originally set to release on March 20, 2020. Then the world shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the movie was shelved just weeks before its release. Now, the movie is set to hit theaters on May 28, and Paramount has released a new final trailer, with a bit of new footage and a promise that seeing it in theaters will be worth it. “A Quiet Place Part II” is set to follow the surviving members of the Abbott family as they leave the comfort of their home, hoping to find other survivors. Of course, creatures still lurk in the wild, and with the family’s latest addition of a newborn in tow, things are that much harder for the Abbott’s. The sequel will introduce new characters, played by Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou, who are dubious of saving others, but for the most part look to be allies. Among the snippets of new sequences in the final trailer are quotes from critics who saw the film way back in 2020, geared toward getting fans back into theaters after months of pandemic shutdowns. “This is the experience theatres were made for,” Fandango’s Erik Davis opines, while KTVK’s Tara Hitchcock says: “So worth the wait.” Those quotes flash across the screen before it’s revealed that “A Quiet Place Part II” will ONLY be in theaters — though Paramount plans to debut the film on its Paramount+ streaming service 45 days after its exclusive theatrical window. You can watch the full final trailer above. Read original story ‘A Quiet Place Part II’ Final Trailer Teases Monsters Meant for the Big Screen (Video) At TheWrap

40% of those seeking assistance experienced food insecurity The Actors Fund released a study Thursday detailing the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on entertainment professionals, revealing that 79% of 7,163 surveyed people whom the national human services organization helped through Feb. 28 are suffering mental health impact. Additionally, 40% are more food insecure than before the pandemic, 28% are behind in their rent or mortgage payments, 20% have been forced to change housing and 56% have tapped into the Actors Fund Emergency Financial Assistance Program. “The last year has exposed how vulnerable people in our community are,” Joe Benincasa, CEO of The Actors Fund, said in a statement accompanying the survey results. “We need to continue to provide critical support while the industry safely returns to work, and we intend to continue to explore ways to ensure more access to our services going forward.” Per the Actors Fund: The majority of the respondents to the survey, who come from all parts of the United States, work in television and/or film (67% and 64% respectively), followed by theater (49%), music (24%), digital (19%), performance art (15%), radio/audio (15%), dance (13%), cultural center/performance venues (11%), clubs (6%), and theme parks (4%). Eight percent work in some other area of entertainment or performing arts. See additional results from The Actors Fund survey below, in the report’s own words: Impacts of Covid-19 The median household income among all respondents was $34,186. Given the low income and lack of savings, it is not surprising that the economic impact of Covid was greatest, with 76% of those surveyed saying they lost income, 62% reporting they lost part-time or gig employment, and 49% lost full-time employment in entertainment. Of the respondents who lost full-time or part-time employment in the entertainment industry, 22% do not know when they will return to work, 29% expect to return in less than six months, 34% in six to 12 months, 11% in one year.

Impact on BIPOC Entertainment Professionals BIPOC respondents – approximately 27% of those surveyed – were more likely to experience reduced food security, forced housing change, increased credit card or other debt, and/or to have changed utility usage as compared to white respondents. Health Insurance & Mental Health Access to health care remains a significant challenge for survey respondents. 10% of the respondents reported that they lost health insurance and have not had it replaced. A stunning 79% reported that Covid-19 has had a negative impact on their mental health, pointing to increased feelings of anxiety or depression, symptoms of stress, and a decreased ability to cope with economic uncertainty. Among respondents who have lost health insurance and do not have health insurance now, 13% expect to have coverage in less than 6 months, 18% in 6 to 12 months, 17% in 1 year, and 11% in 2 years or more. 40% do not know when they will have health insurance again and 1% never expect to have health insurance again. BIPOC respondents were slightly more likely to have lost health insurance and not have health insurance. Respondents who have health insurance were asked the likelihood of losing their health insurance in the next 12 months. 16% of respondents said they were very likely to lose insurance, 20% somewhat likely, and 38% were not at all likely to lose health insurance in the next 12 months. 25% of respondents do not know if they will lose their health insurance in the next 12 months. THE ACTORS FUND SERVICES The most accessed service provided by The Actors Fund was emergency financial assistance (56%), followed by Career Center services (18%), health insurance counseling (14%), financial education (10%), counseling/mental health services (7%), NYC health care (5%), housing workshops (5%), senior services (3%), and housing (3%). 14% of respondents had not used any of the listed services. In 2020, The Actors Fund served more than 40,000 individuals, a 71% increase from 2019; distributed more than $19 million in direct cash to some 15,000 individuals; and helped people from 126 different occupations in performing arts and entertainment with their services around career, financial wellness, mental health, health insurance, housing and more. Fund COO Barbara Davis said, “Clearly, we were able to help lessen the impact of the pandemic but the pandemic has a long tail. Now, we need to continue to provide direct financial assistance, must help more people access health insurance and receive health care, and provide mental health and other support services as the entertainment industry gradually returns.” Read original story Pandemic Caused Deep Mental, Financial Hardships for Performers, Actors Fund Survey Finds At TheWrap
