Fall TV: ABC comedy a black-isha tackles cultural identity

The new ABC comedy “black-ish” partially came out of a conversation Anthony Anderson had with his son a couple of years ago. The actor-writer says that one day his then-12-year-old told him, “Dad, I don't feel black.” Taken aback, he let his son explain that his world was very different than the one in which Anderson grew up - “in the hood, in Compton.” “The existence that my son knows is nothing short of privilege, being in private school since the age of 4, and his surroundings in that environment is what he was referring to,” Anderson says.

Tough time to sell Ukraine president's 'mouthwatering' candy empire

A chance to buy the candy empire of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is the kind of opportunity in a fast-growing market that would normally have multinational confectioners - like Nestle or Cadbury's parent Mondelez - drooling at the prospect. But despite owning factories in four countries and making $1.2 billion in annual sales, Ukraine's "chocolate king" may have a hard time finding a buyer for his company, now that its founder is the leader of a country at war.

For Statton Furniture's third-generation president and the Hagerstown manufacturer's craftsmen and customers, it was a sad time in late 2008 when the 82-year-old company sold off its machinery and tools, and shut its doors.
