— Harvey Weinstein knows he can be temperamental, and he knows he’s not above a good publicity stunt, but he said Thursday his complaints over an R rating for his company’s upcoming trans teen family story “3 Generations” are worth the effort on behalf of prospective young trans viewers.Starring Elle Fanning as a girl who wants to transition, the Motion Picture Association of America assigned the restrictive R based on strong language, including some sexual references. The film, which opens with a limited release in Los Angeles and New York on May 5, also stars Naomi Watts and Susan Sarandon.The dust up is similar to Weinstein’s ratings complaint for “Bully” in 2012. The Weinstein Company successfully challenged that film’s R rating and the MPAA knocked it down to PG-13.

An Anchorage dentist faces a slew of allegations that he unnecessarily sedated patients in order to maximize Medicaid payments, according to charging documents filed in court this week.Seth Lookhart of Clear Creek Dental was charged with 17 counts of fraud and “unlawful dental acts” based on an investigation by the state Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, the Office of Inspector General and agents from the FBI and DEA.Lookhart’s office manager, Shauna Cranford, faces 16 charges. Ten of the charges are felonies.Among the charges, filed Monday, are allegations that in 2016, Lookhart billed nearly $2 million in intravenous sedation without proper justification; that he illegally diverted funds from his employer; and he performed a tooth extraction while standing on a hoverboard, filmed it and texted it to others, while a patient was sedated.
(NEWSER) – It’s been established that screen time in its traditional form—think television and video games—is linked to sleep problems in kids, note researchers in introducing their more specific study: one that, for the first time, looks at touch-screen use among very young children. What they found is a link to poorer sleep, and it starts as early as infancy. Reporting in the journal Scientific Reports, researchers find that the more kids ages 6 months to 3 years use touch screens during the day, the longer it takes them to fall asleep and the less sleep they log in total. The study is observational and does not prove that the use of touch screens causes sleep issues, but researchers say the link warrants further study.
