- President Gabrielle Carteris of SAG-AFTRA has tough words for IMDB
HOLLYWOOD (Herald de Paris) — Since of January 1, 2017, IMDB – (The Internet Movie Data Base) has been required by law to remove subscribers’ date of birth information, upon request. However, IMDB has not been doing so. The President of the Screen Actors Guild, Gabrielle Carteris, retaliated by sending a message to SAG’s entire membership today, chiding IMDB by calling them, “Stubborn,” and threatening legal recourse.
The core issue SAG has with IMDB’s publishing of birth dates is that it gives casting directors, directors, producers , investors, studios and ad agencies an opportunity to discriminate against an actor(s) based on their real age.

- Who owns the land at Standing Rock? The top thing to know about DAPL
STANDING ROCK SIOUX TERRITORY (Herald de Paris) — US Army veterans numbering in the hundreds have been filtering onto the snow-swept plains at the construction site of the Dakota Access Pipeline, intent on shielding the Native American protesters from the militarized police. At issue are historically sensitive native lands, the rights of Indian Nations, and for the traditional inhabitants of this land, sacred sites and the protection of their fresh water source.
Since the beginning of the stand-off, others have joined the protest in numbers that swell daily. While it seems clear that all those opposing the US Army Corps of Engineers are in favor of the rights of the Standing Rock Sioux protecting their historical lands and their water, how we arrived at this point continues to be muddled by the fast-evolving human interest aspects of the story.
Rather than to scratch the surface on this issue, we went all the way back to the beginning. Consulting with professional subject matter experts in cultural resources, archaeology, anthropology, and even environmental regulations, we have uncovered the core issues – issues key to ending this standoff before anyone gets killed.
- Where we stand on Standing Rock
Washington, DC (Herald de Paris) — As we enter into December, with snow falling in Sioux Country, many people have asked why we have not been reporting on the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the stand-off between the US Army Corps of Engineers, the Standing Rock Sioux, and the growing protest in North Dakota. The truth is, we are neck deep in our own investigation, and we are not yet ready to reveal all we have uncovered. Without blowing the cover off our exclusive investigation, here is what we can tell you, thus far:
Our exclusive investigative team includes professional cultural resources specialists with nearly 40 years of combined experience in cultural resources, protected land, and in particular Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, the legislation at the center of the controversy. Our team has been scouring through hundreds of pages of documents on the Dakota Access Pipeline project, looking to see that the US Army Corps of Engineers adhered to the letter of the law with respect to Section 106; that the rights of the indigenous people were not violated; and that the program was scoped within the allowable standard practices in the cultural resources industry.
