Laura Dern and Pete Souza talk their new doc, TikTok challenge

Published

on

Over the past four years, photographer Pete Souza’s social media posts have inspired media outlets like Politico to dub him the “King Of Instagram Shade.” As the Chief Official White House Photographer for Barack Obama, Souza’s photos of the life and work of the former president stand in stark contrast to what we’re dealing with today, and that’s precisely the point. “I can understand why people say it’s political, but really, it’s citizenry!,” says Souza, whose life, career (he also worked for the Reagan administration), and his fruitful Instagram hobby are the focus of Dawn Porter’s new documentary, The Way I See It, which hopes to remind audiences what it means to be “presidential” through the lens of someone who’s had unprecedented access to the country’s highest office. Among the film’s producers is celebrated actor Laura Dern, who recognizes the importance of its message, especially in the face of the crucial election year: “We have an opportunity to protect what we want leadership to look like.” Ahead of The Way I See It’s television premiere, The A.V. Club had the opportunity to Zoom chat with Souza and Dern to discuss the documentary’s timeliness and the power of social media. And, speaking of social media, we couldn’t resist asking the pair about the recently viral Laura Dern Sitting Challenge on TikTok, of which Dern reveals, “I have not seen it, but I do hope Pete does it, whatever it is!”

The Way I See It—which opened in select theaters last month—makes its television premiere Friday, October 16 on MSNBC at 10 pm ET.

Radhika Apte in her most recent interaction with Vikranth Massey on social media from London has admitted that she does not believe in the institution of marriage.  When asked why she got married the talented performer replied that it is easier for married people to get a British visa and that’s why she and her man opted for it in 2012.

Radhika is currently chilling with Taylor in their London home during the lockdown and will soon start filming her next English film ‘Noor Inayat Khan’ in which she plays a spy based on a true story.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

on

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
