‘Goodnight Moon’ reimagined as ‘Good Morning Zoom’ for coronavirus era

Published

on

Goodnight, society as we knew it.

Margaret Wise Brown’s 1947 children’s book “Goodnight Moon” has been reimagined for the time of the coronavirus. “Good Morning Zoom,” a parody version of the book by investment banker Lindsay Rechler and illustrator June Park, will be published by Penguin Random House in October.

“It seemed fitting because ‘Goodnight Moon’ takes place exclusively in one room or home, and that is how I felt about quarantine,” Rechler, who’s been quarantining with a 2- and a 4-year-old in a Manhattan apartment since March, told Jewish parenting site Kveller. “Zoom was a nice play on words and fitting, given our new reality and this concept of replacing hugs with technology.”

In addition to bringing adults a smile with her clever alternative to the original, Rechler believes the book will bring solace to young readers. “I think children will find comfort because the book details what they are actually going through each and every day,” she said, adding that the book is intended to serve as a source of simultaneous familiarity and a prompt for questions on recent, drastic changes to little ones’ daily lives. “Most importantly, for both kids and parents, I want the book to provide hope.”

Book profits will be donated to coronavirus relief charities.

Rechler is not the first mom to be inspired by COVID-19 to reboot children’s literature for the present moment. During lockdown, Manhattan mother Stefanie Trilling topically redesigned kids’ book covers, including “Green Eggs and Wash Your Hands” and “The Berenstain Bears and Too Much Time Home.”

And “Good Morning Zoom” is not the first alternative take on the classic read — “Moon” has been rewritten as “Goodnight Dune” and “Goodnight iPad” over the years.

Children’s author Wise Brown was beloved for the timeless tale, which has sold more than 14 million copies. She died in 1952 and is remembered as a bisexual rebel who didn’t like kids. Her work has been posthumously published as recently as 2017.

How to Watch the Final Round of the US Open

Published

By

After a weekend full of some exciting rounds, we’ve finally reached the end of the 2020 US Open. Today marks the final round of golf’s biggest tournament. 21 year-old Matthew Wolff, whose decision to drop out of college is looking more and more fortuitous, is sitting atop the leaderboard at -5 after the first three rounds. Bryson DeChambeau, a former US Amateur champion, is only two strokes back at -3, while Patrick Reed (who began yesterday in the lead before a disastrous round of 77 after falling prey to Winged Foot’s treacherous rough) is eight strokes behind Wolff.

Whether you’ve been watching for the last four days or just wanted to get in on the final round of all the action, we’ve got you covered. Here’s how to watch the final round of the US Open, live:

WHEN IS THE FINAL ROUND OF THE US OPEN GOLF TOURNAMENT?

It’s your last chance to watch one of golf’s biggest events live, so don’t miss it. Today, Sept. 20, marks the final day of the 2020 US Open.

WHAT TIME IS THE FINAL ROUND OF THE US OPEN GOLF TOURNAMENT?

Just like yesterday, action started off bright and early at 8/7c. The final round of the US Open goes until 5/4c today, when it’s time to say goodbye and pack up the clubs until next year’s event.

HOW TO WATCH THE 2020 US OPEN GOLF TOURNAMENT FINAL ROUND 4 LIVE STREAM:

If you’ve been watching the 2020 US Open all weekend, you’ll know that Peacock is an easy way to stream the event live. NBC’s new streaming service has been airing the tournament since its first day earlier in the week, and will continue to cover the US Open on its final day. To livestream the final round of the US Open on Peacock, just go to Peacock’s website. There, you can check out the tournament schedule and hours, and stream every match. Peacock’s biggest perk is its cost, which is $0. Yup, Peacock is totally free, so you can stream the US Open right after you sign up, with no credit card entry necessary.

Peacock isn’t your only option, though. You’ve also got the Golf Channel livestream, which will be covering the final round of the US Open today. To watch, head to the Golf Channel website and log in with a valid cable login, or use the free trial option. You can also access the livestream with a subscription to Hulu + Live TV or YouTube TV. Then there’s FuboTV, where new customers can get a free trial, or USOpen.com, which is live streaming the tournament  for free.

If you have good old fashioned rabbit ears, you’re in luck: NBC will begin coverage of the final round of the US Open today at 12pm ET/9am PT.

WHAT ARE THE US OPEN ROUND 4 TEE TIMES FOR THE FINAL ROUND?

How Cobra Kai season 3 will change everything you know about Mr. Miyagi

Published

on

By

In the first teaser for season three, Daniel says, “Mr. Miyagi treated me like a son, he wouldn’t keep any secrets from me.” Someone off-camera responds, “Are you sure about that?” Tellingly, we then see someone bring down a trident-style weapon near Daniel’s head.

When he took Daniel on as a student, Mr. Miyagi insisted that karate should only be used for self-defense. Additionally, the sensei was always depicted as a calm, wise adult with all the answers. Since Cobra Kai delights in re-framing all of the small details that the franchise previously told fans, right down to the assertion that Johnny is an irredeemable villain, it only makes sense that Mr. Miyagi wasn’t always the perfect mentor and teacher that Daniel believes him to be.

If Cobra Kai has a mission statement, it’s that people are rarely ever entirely good or bad. Most people exist in the gray zone, and that presumably includes Mr. Miyagi. If Daniel is going to continue to grow as a mentor to his own students, then his journey into his teacher’s past will be essential. Whether he discovers that Mr. Miyagi didn’t always believe that karate should be a nonviolent practice, or something even more shocking, the revelation will no doubt serve as a reminder that even our heroes are fallible.
