A jolly good sport who genuinely looks like he had the best time, McCartney runs through some of his most iconic numbers, from the thematically necessary "Drive My Car," to "Penny Lane," and the first song he ever wrote...

Long-haul truck drivers already face plenty of dangers on the road, but if you also happen to be a gay couple or a trans woman emerging from the cab at a gas station or rest stop, these can potentially expand to discrimination, violence, and hate. That's why Shelle Lichti, a 25-year veteran of the trucking industry, created an online community for the disparate and wide-ranging truckers who identify as LGBTQ.  Lichti was one of six panelists Uber Freight brought Thursday to its San Francisco...

Organizations like Time's Up are fighting long, hard battles against systemic discrimination in Hollywood. And a new study on the state of diversity among film directors shows not only how much work lies ahead, but how desperately needed these movements for change are. The Directors Guild of America (DGA) released its annual inclusion report for 2017 on June 21, and the numbers leave a lot to be desired.  The study found that a mere 16% of women directed the 651 feature films accounted for by...
