In preparation for the COP27 convention, President Xi Jin Ping and President Joe Biden met in Bali. This was the first time that two world leaders have sat down in person to meet since Joe Biden was elected as president. Before the meeting began, tensions between the two countries were at an all time high. Orville Schell, former professor of journalism at UC Berkeley, explained that because Biden had met Xi before, Biden was one of the better equipped American politicians to diminish tensions between the countries.
The anticipation for the newest romantic comedy “Ticket to Paradise” is growing following the release of the trailer, starring two of the most iconic figures in Hollywood. Leads George Clooney and Julia Roberts are back together once again on the silver screen, playing a divorced couple who run into each other on their way to Bali, both attempting to stop their young daughter from getting married to a man she just met. Clooney and Roberts last worked together on Oceans 11 and 12 in 2001 and 2004, so viewers have already had a glimpse of their on-screen dynamic as a divorced couple. However, the difference in their chemistry within the action/crime series to this romantic comedy will be interesting to watch.
