When “Black Panther” star Chad Boseman died almost two months ago after a four-year battle with colon cancer, he didn’t have a will.

Now, the fate of at least part of the 43-year-old actor’s estate is left up to the courts. His wife, Simone Ledward, has asked to be named administrator with limited authority over the estate, which has an estimated value of nearly $939,000, according to court documents.

That isn’t necessarily the entirety of his estate and, because there was no will, those assets are subject to probate and court intervention. Some accounts, such as life insurance and qualified retirement accounts like 401(k) plans and individual retirement accounts, may be passed down to a beneficiary without having to go through the courts. Up to $11.58 million per person can

‘Helstrom’ on Hulu: Meet new Marvel TV star Sydney Lemmon

Sydney Lemmon really, really, really wants you to vote.

The 30-year-old actress has been volunteering regularly with Knock for Democracy, calling voters in states like North Carolina and Georgia, where Democrats are in competitive House and Senate races.

Trying to talk politics with strangers sounds intimidating at a time when Americans are as polarized as ever on nearly every issue, and Lemmon admits it’s hard not be discouraged by the harsh rejections, which can feel personal. But the positive interactions make it worthwhile.

“In our own little echo chambers and bubbles, we’re all so driven and obsessed with this [political] moment,” Lemmon, who passes quite a bit of time engrossed in the news cycle, says during a video call from Connecticut. “But there are people whose votes count just as much who don’t feel the urgency the same way. I just can’t say enough about how meaningful it’s been to

Heffner column: Learning how to learn – Opinion – Journal Star

Columns share an author’s personal perspective.
*****

The continuing presence of COVID-19 has for the most part, defeated attempts around the country to open schools for traditional classroom teaching and learning. Many schools have resorted to split schedules consisting of two days a week of in-classroom attendance and the balance of time remote learning on-line at home.

This change in education means that children are learning not only subject matter, but how to learn in new ways. Parents, too, have had to participate in their children’s education in new ways, and are now learning themselves how they can help their children learn how to learn in new ways.

Parents and children have had various reactions to the involvement of parents in their new way of learning. As in all things related to child care the responsibility always seems to fall back on the mother. In the present era of many

Love Island 2019 contestants Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury might not have walked away with the £50,000 prize money at the end of their series, but the couple haven’t done too badly when it comes to post-villa earnings. And when we say ~too badly~, we mean the pair have been absolutely raking it in.

What is Molly-Mae’s net worth?

Before we even get to Instagram earnings, let’s not forget the huge deals Molly-Mae’s done with big brands like Pretty Little Thing. After leaving Love Island, the 21-year-old influencer landed a sponsorship deal with the online fashion retailer, which was reportedly worth £500,000. Then there was her deal with Beauty Works Hair Extensions which she secured straight after leaving the villa, and in late 2019 she also launched her very own line of tanning products. This September, she hit more than one million YouTube subscribers,

Is this the best time to start a business? ‘The Profit’ star offers some insight

Is this a good time or a bad time to start a business? What if I told you it is a great time?

I have long thought that recessions are excellent times to start businesses. The smart and passionate Marcus Lemonis, star of the “The Profit” on CNBC, agrees.

Recessions could work well for startups for a few reasons:

•Startups require passion and commitment, and those facing financial uncertainty have those traits in spades.

•Essential startup costs are cheaper in recessions, i.e. rent, advertising, labor, etc.

Lemonis added another very important reason: There is a lot of money available for startups. “With the (Small Business Administration) being more generous than ever with their guidelines and with more cash on the sidelines than there has been in years,” the time could be opportune to launch a startup.

Perhaps it’s time to launch a startup.

Lemonis suggested that we all should
