‘Cooking Mama: Cookstar’ Is Going Through Some Drama With “Unauthorized” Launch

‘Cooking Mama’ lands in hot water
Looks like a small stove fire just started in the kitchen…
The license holder and publisher of the new “Cooking Mama: Cookstar” have taken to the Internet to argue over who has control over the title.
The original developer of the DS game, Office Create, first licensed Cookstar to publisher Planet Entertainment back in 2018. Later in March, the game was made available on Nintendo Switch, but it was pulled from shelves days after being available for sale.
Office Create released a statement saying that the title “failed to meet the standards its customers expect and deserve.” The developer raised their concerns with Plant Entertainment, but it seems the publisher went ahead and released the game anyways.

However, Office Create said in a statement that Planet was “contractually obligated” to address all concerns before release. As a result, Office Create is considering legal action against Plant in order to protect customers, property rights and the Cooking Mama series.
Plant Entertainment released its own statement saying that “creative differences arose” that were “outside the scope” of the two companies’ agreement. The statement went on to say that “there is no active litigation or ruling that prevents Planet from publishing the game.”
“Cooking Mama” is a popular series of cooking simulation-styled games. Players perform different kitchen tasks through the instructions of “Mama” and must cook various meals. So far, there have been five main games on Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS, two spin-offs on Wii and DS, and one spin-off on 3DS.

Model approved collection with affordable price points
The body-positive activist has revealed her latest venture, and it’s sure to make a lot of dreams come true for many women.
Ashley Graham shared her experience of having to compromise on her own wedding dress because of her size. In hopes of relieving other women from having to go through the same thing, Graham teamed up with Pronovias to launch a plus-size wedding dress collection.
Graham took to Instagram to say that no one should have to compromise on their wedding dress and that saying yes to a dress was hard for her. “It has been 9 years since Justin and I got married and I wouldn’t change anything about that day,” Graham wrote in her Instagram post. “EXCEPT…a lot of us know the feeling of compromising style for size, something you shouldn’t have to do on your wedding day.”

It has been 9 years since Justin and I got married and I wouldn’t change anything about that day. EXCEPT…a lot of us know the feeling of compromising style for sizing, something you shouldn’t have to do on your wedding day! I found a silhouette that I loved, but I had to accept major details I didn’t want because there was nothing in that shape that fit me. And it wasn’t even the right size! We ended up adding a panel to a size 10 dress off the rack so it would fit my 16 frame to make it work. Finding a dream dress is something I would have loved to experience! Andddd I want all of you to be able to have! I’m so excited to be partnering with @pronovias to create a bridal line for everyone. The collection runs from size 0-34 and there is something for any type of bride! There are so many different dresses for anyone from the classic bride to the ultra glam bride and options with SLEEVES, which I love. By far my favorite part is that every dress has shapewear and bras built in. I can’t WAIT for you guys to see the collection when it’s out this March! You shouldn’t have to compromise who you are because of what’s on the rack
A post shared by A S H L E Y G R A H A M (@ashleygraham) on Jan 6, 2020 at 3:26pm PST

Graham and Pronovias released a 16-piece collection featuring dresses and a tuxedo suit in the U.S. sizes 0-34 (the UK sizes 4 to 38). The bridal collection will feature a range of styles, designs, and silhouettes for every body type.
As Graham said, the collection is made for anyone who wants to be “the classic bride to the ultra-glam bride.” Even more inclusive than the designs and sizes are the prices of the dress. Dresses start at around $1,000 and go up to about $4,500, as reported by Harper’s Bazaar.
The Ashley Graham x Pronovias collection is already available for purchase in-stores as of March.

Universities Consider Canceling In-Person Classes Until 2021

Universities and colleges considering going all online
College students who were hoping to get back into the swing of things in the coming months may be in for some sad news. A number of universities are beginning to consider the possibility of canceling in-person classes for the rest of 2020, meaning that they will not resume until 2021.
One institution that has already canceled all “in-person summer activities” is Boston University, but should officials deem it unsafe to return to classes for the fall semester, the University has a recovery plan that involves continuing classes remotely come August.
In an online statement, the University said that it “[E]nvisions the need to consider a later in-person return, perhaps in January 2021.” Boston University went on to say that it will “continue providing the minimal housing and dining services that are currently available.”
Students returning to in-person classes in the fall is the “best-case scenario” not just for BU, but for universities and colleges across the country. But the safety and health of students is a top concern, so many schools want to re-open in the best and safest way possible.
Other universities that are following suit include Harvard, Oregon State, and Florida International University. This scenario goes to show just how schools are facing some unimaginable changes to their curriculum and just how upending the COVID-19 virus has been to the operations of higher education.
In March, classes were moved online in a matter of days, spring break was canceled, summer jobs furloughed, and commencement ceremonies postponed or canceled altogether. Aside from university officials, students are hopeful that fall will bring an end to the uncertainty and things can go back to relative normalcy.

(Photo: Disney Channel)
“Together, together, come on let’s have some fun!”
Director Kenny Ortega immediately expressed his enthusiasm when ABC and Bob Iger asked him is he would like to participate in the April 16 special of “The Disney Family Singalong.” The “High School Musical” director shared that he asked actors and artists from his previous movies and TV series to participate in a performance of the High School Musical anthem “We’re All In This Together” for the special.
But of course, the anthem wouldn’t be complete without the East High Wildcats, but thankfully, Ortega was able to convince Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, Monique Coleman and Lucas Grabeel to agree to participate. And in a last-minute edition, Zac Efron agreed to come on board to send out a positive message to everyone during these tough times.

“Everyone we reached out to was quick — and you’ll see it in their spirit and the way they come together from their homes,” Ortega said. “They recognize this is an opportunity to strengthen spirits for those joining us for the broadcast.”
In addition to the original six from “High School Musical,” Ortega also shared that other artists from the Disney family will be coming together for various different projects. That includes Raven-Symoné who he worked with on “Cheetah Girls” as well as the cast members from “Descendants,” “Zombies” and “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.”
The performance of “We’re All In this Together” will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest on April 16 at 8 pm ET on ABC. Other artists who will be participating in the nationwide singalong include Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Josh Groban and much more.

Educating muggles on the Wizarding World
Those awaiting their acceptance to Hogwarts only to be left heartbroken when it didn’t arrive now have a shot at being a student. Whether you’re in Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff, you now have a second chance at taking classes at the famed School of Witchcraft and Wizardry—virtually.
A group of Harry Potter fans banded together to create an online Wizarding World filled with magical curriculum, and the best part, it’s free!
Headed by some diehard Potterheads, Hogwarts is Here allows people to enroll in a realistic online course. Course loads are for everyone from first to seventh years, and classes include some of the most famous like Defense Against the Dark Arts and Potions.
Other courses include the history of the magic and students can even take O.W.L.S exams. The open course directory allows fans to explore the material at their own pace and enrolled students even have the option of completing real assignments.
Upon sighing up, the student will be able to choose their character and house. From there, they can join a “dorm” based on their house and socialize with classmates in a private group chat. For those that don’t want to be a student, they have the option of being a House ghost, auror, magical creature expert, or any other magical occupation.
As stated on the Hogwarts is Here website, fans can “immerse” themselves at Hogwarts and earn house points, meet new friends in the common room and more.

Nintendo Halts Switch Shipments Amid Explosive Sales

Looks like Mario and Animal Crossing have been keeping people busy
With millions of Americans staying home because of the COVID-19 outbreak, children and adults alike are taking up their Switch to play fun games and pass the time. Despite being three years old, the console still remains a hot commodity, selling over 52 million units.
However, because of the stay at home order and many people using the Switch to play fun games and keep sane, the console is sold out at most major retailers. “Nintendo Switch hardware is selling out at various retail locations in the US, but more systems are on the way,” Nintendo said. “We apologize for any inconvenience.”
Retailers like Target, GameStop and Best Buy lists various versions of the console as sold out both in-store and online. When it comes to Walmart and Amazon, because third-party sellers offer products at a markup, the Switch is still available, but only if you are willing to pay more than the retail price.
The recent launch of “Animal Crossing: New Horizons” no doubt triggered the Switch’s increase in sales. The game sold nearly 2 million copies in Japan alone in its first three days. In the US, the game has proven equally as popular, with people playing and posting their adventures on social media.

Miss England 2019 hangs up her crown to return to medical field as NHS worker
Bhasha Mukherjee was crowned Miss England in 2019, but in light of the ongoing pandemic, the beauty queen has hung up her crown to continue her career as a doctor. She returned to the United Kingdom from overseas charity work and will work as a junior doctor.
After taking a career break to compete in the Miss World pageant in December 2019 and representing England, Mukherjee was invited to be an ambassador for several charities. She initially had plans to focus on humanitarian work until August.
In an interview with CNN, Mukherjee said that she was invited to Africa, Turkey, India, Pakistan and several other Asian countries “for various charity work.”

"My services would be much more useful in a hospital."

Just last month, Miss England was in India for four weeks as the ambassador for Coventry Mercia Lions Club, a development and community charity. She and the organization visited schools to donate stationary and provide financial support to a home for abandoned girls.
However, after being informed of the worsening situation back home, Mukherjee contacted her old hospital, the Pilgrim Hospital in Boston, eastern England, to let them know she wanted to return to work.
Before returning to work, Mukherjee self-isolated herself for two weeks. She specializes in repository medicine; however, doctors are being rotated to wherever they are needed.
