NEW YORK (AP) — Warren Beatty says Academy of Motion Pictures President Cheryl Boone Isaacs should “publicly clarify” what happened during Sunday night’s best picture presentation “as soon as possible.”Beatty released a statement Tuesday to The Associated Press in which he declined to comment further on the debacle that led to him and co-presenter Faye Dunaway mistakenly reading “La La Land” as best picture winner rather than “Moonlight.” Instead, he urged the academy to answer questions.”I feel it would be more appropriate for the president of the Academy, Cheryl Boone Isaacs, to publicly clarify what happened as soon as possible,” said Beatty.Representatives for the academy didn’t immediately comment Tuesday.Since Sunday’s broadcast, the academy has largely left the explaining to PwC, the accounting firm that has taken the blame for the “La La Land” mistakenly being read as the best picture winner by Beatty and Faye Dunaway. PwC, which is in charge of tabulating the winners, has said partner Brian Cullinan mistakenly handed them the wrong envelope.The film academy didn’t release a statement of its own until late Monday.

The Obama administration assessed $20 billion in corporate fines and settlements in its final days, according to new data from the nonprofit group Good Jobs First in Washington, D.C.Between 2010 and 2016, the Obama administration racked up more than $320 billion in corporate fines and settlements, Good Jobs First reports.The dollar amounts recorded in the final year of Obama’s term will be more than anything previously posted, said Philip Mattera, the Good Jobs First research director.“The Obama approach has been to seek unprecedented levels of settlements compared to any previous administration,” Mattera told AMI Newswire.President Obama’s final offensive against corporations for financial, environmental, health and other alleged misconduct could mark the high point in terms of penalties levied, Mattera said. President Trump’s emphasis on deregulation may mean business misconduct will now be less of a priority, Mattera said.“We’re assuming that there are going to be fewer such cases, and we’re not going to see these types of settlements,” Mattera said.Recent cases tracked by Good Jobs First include payouts of $7.2 billion from Deutsche Bank, $5.3 billion from Credit Suisse and $4.3 billion from Volkswagen.The level of corporate wrongdoing suggested by the recent settlements and fines should give pause to advocates of deregulation, said Mattera. But other analysts express concerns about how the payouts affect overall economic activity and whether they truly reflect willful, onerous corporate behavior.

Jameelah “Just Jay” Wilkerson, CEO and Publisher of “The Hype Magazine”, continues to make a name for herself as one of the leading women in the entertainment industry. The Indiana Native was most recently honored at “The Trailblazer Awards” December 4, 2016, at the Madame Walker Theatre.
Though she is the CEO of her own company, Jameelah prefers to be very “hands-on”, when it comes to the tasks necessary to keep the magazine running smoothly. She showcases her many talents on the back end of the magazine including web designing, consulting, and graphic designing.
She launched the magazine in 2002, at the young age of 24. Not only was she considered “young” to start a company, but it was apparent that she was one of the few women trying to accelerate her career in the midst of a predominately male-run industry. Though it wasn’t always easy, and she wasn’t always taken seriously because of her gender, this never stopped her form excelling in her field.
Why “The Hype”? What does the name stand for?
Jameelah: It stands for How You Perceive Everything. It basically was originated to be more of a literary magazine at first, but then it kinda turned into more of a hip-hop magazine over the years.
