How little boy’s Baby Yoda gift became good-luck charm to wildfire-fighting crews

Firefighters battling the West Coast blazes have found some happiness in the form of, believe it or not, Baby Yoda.

It started in September when Carver, a 5-year-old Oregon boy, told his grandmother, Sasha Tinning, that he wanted to accompany her to the store as she bought items to donate to a supply drive for firefighters. As they browsed, they spotted a toy version of the most adorable character from the Disney+ series The Mandalorian.

“He was the last one,” Tinning tells Yahoo Entertainment. “I looked at Carver, and I said, ‘Do you think this would be something the firefighters would like? And he said, ‘Yeah, Yeah, sure, they could use a friend.’”

Her grandson wrote a sweet note to go along with the gift: “Thank you Fire Fighters. Here is a friend for you, in case you get lonely.  Love, Carver.”

Kimiko’s statement jewelry on The Boys

Welcome back to Look of the Week, celebrating the best in TV and film sartorial excellence, past and present across sci-fi, horror, fantasy, and other genre classics!

When we first meet Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) in Season 1 of The Boys, the cutesy unicorn sweatshirt and cartoon panda-print pants she is wearing are soon covered in blood. The childlike combo cannot mask the rage she unleashes on those who held her captive and inflicted these powers on her. Despite her propensity for carnage, Frenchie (Tomer Capon) immediately identifies with her situation and views her as a kindred spirit. This relationship has hit a rocky streak in recent episodes, but a piece of statement jewelry kickstarts a dialogue that leads to an important realization by Frenchie. Not everyone needs to be saved — even on a superhero show.

Spoilers for Season 2 of The Boys ahead.

The History Of The Iconic Fred Perry Polo, And Why The Proud Boys Adopted It

The Proud Boys seem quite joyful about their passing, if weirdly coded and freighted, presidential shout-out in the first televised slugfest between the incumbent and his challenger on September 29th. As mentions by any sitting president would do, no matter the circumstance, it seemed to buttress them. Ironically, the day before this unexpected boost on the very hottest of national stages, the British sportswear/fashion brand Fred Perry issued a no-doubt press-release declaring that it was removing the now-iconic Proud Boys uniform, what’s called the “twin-tipped” (aka, double-striped), polo in black with yellow stripes from the market in the U.S. and Canada, as a result of the Proud Boys’ wholesale love for

Atlanta, GA, Sept. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Young King Hair Care is the first and only natural hair care line internationally crafted for multicultural boys.

Founded by husband and wife Cora and Stefan Miller, the duo searched but couldn’t find hair products that suited the needs of their son and other boys with textured hair. There were plenty of options for women and girls, but nothing for boys.  

Research confirmed their theory and they also discovered that black purchasing power grew 114% in the last 10 years and that last year alone black spending grew $1.4 trillion.

Fashion brand Fred Perry pulled a polo shirt from sale in September 2019 after it was appropriated by the far-right Proud Boys group in North America, the company said in a statement on Thursday, September 24.
