Cursive is making a comeback. Relegated in 2006 to an optional piece of learning in Ontario elementary schools, cursive writing is set to return as a mandatory part of the curriculum starting in September. Education Minister Stephen Lecce said teaching kids to “write” again is about more than having them learn to sign their own name. He feels learning cursive is critical to “helping young people to express more substantively”, and “if we want to boost reading instruction, we have to embrace some of those time-tested strategies that have worked for generations.”

As Kevin Costner battles his estranged wife, Christine Baumgartner, over her alleged refusal to leave his $145 million residence in California, he has put up his massive home in Colorado, known as “Dunbar Ranch” for rent. The Golden Globe winner listed what seems like what would be his logical option for home base, his 160-acre Aspen estate in January for a colossal $36,000 per night, and it still seems up for grabs. Featuring 12 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, the spread occupies nearly 6,000 square feet. Dunbar Ranch has been pegged as “the ultimate luxury retreat,” with 24/7 caretakers on site, a baseball field, a sledding hill, 3 hot tubs and room to sleep 27 people comfortably.
Kevin Costner’s estranged wife has requested nearly a quarter million dollars in monthly child support. Christine Baumgartner wants $248,000 per month, a figure that is “less than the amount needed to maintain the (3) children in their accustomed lifestyle.” Additionally, the 49-year-old is requesting the actor pay 100% of their kids’ private school tuition, extracurricular activities, and health care expenses. The kids range in age from 13-16 years old. Costner previously agreed to pay $38,000 a month.
Paramount+’s “Yellowstone” prequel ‘1923” is the latest show to shut down production as the WGA strike hits the 50-day mark. “Metropolis”, Sam Esmail’s years-in-the making Apple TV+ adaptation of the 1927 sci-fi film, has shut down permanently amid the labor unrest and economic headwinds. Production was halted last week on Netflix’s first comedy pilot “Little Sky”, starring and executive-produced by Samara Weaving. And “The Penguin”, Max’s “The Batman” spinoff series starring Colin Farrell, ceased production on June 14 until after the writers strike.

A Bible that was once gifted to Elvis Presley is up for sale through memorabilia company Moments in Time – for a whopping $95,000. The Bible was given to Elvis by a fan, and it even has his name etched onto the cover. But much more important is the fact that Elvis signed it on the inside cover — making it a collectible. It also contains a photograph of Elvis and his mother, Gladys.
