Proud Parents! Tom Brady, Bridget Moynahan's Sweetest Quotes About Son Jack

  Proud Parents! Tom Brady, Bridget Moynahan's Sweetest Quotes About Son Jack Gushing over their guy! Tom Brady and Bridget Moynahan have opened up over the years about raising their son, Jack, who was born after their 2006 split. The professional football player was dating his now-wife, Gisele Bündchen, when he found out that he and the Blue Bloods star were expecting a baby. The news turned the model’s world “upside down,” she wrote in her 2018 memoir, Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life. Although she didn’t have “an easy time” coming to terms with the actress’ pregnancy, the Brazil native added that her “heart expand[ed] in ways [she] didn’t know were possible.” As for Moynahan, the New York native felt “assaulted” during that time. She wrote in Our Shoes, Our Selves in 2019: “It’s unnerving to be followed and stalked like that, especially during such an emotionally vulnerable time. … I became reclusive for a bit. I became wildly private. I shared little and only with a select few.” After Jack’s birth, Brady wed Bündchen and welcomed two more children with the businesswoman — Benjamin and Vivian in 2009 and 2012, respectively. The former Victoria’s Secret Angel doesn’t “like the word stepmom” to describe her relationship with Jack, she wrote on her February 2020 Instagram Story. “I use the word bonus mom because I feel like it’s a blessing in my life. I feel so lucky that I got to have an extra, wonderful little angel in my life.” Jack is the “sweetest big brother in the world,” Bündchen captioned an Instagram photo celebrating his birthday in 2015. “Thank you for bringing so much joy into our lives. We love you so much peanut.” Keep scrolling to see the sweet things Brady and Moynahan have shared about their son, from his personality to his career goals.

OTTAWA — As he contemplates a failed Conservative leadership campaign that put the cart before the horse — trying to win a federal election instead of first securing his party — Peter MacKay is reminded of an age-old cliche: "Nice guys finish last." 

And while the longtime Tory leader-in-waiting has few regrets, he does worry that the ever-growing influence of social conservatives within the movement could lead to more disappointment at the polls if victor Erin O'Toole can't keep them in check.

In a long and wide-ranging interview with The Canadian Press, MacKay said the examination of his second-place finish in the contest is still underway, but several factors are evident.

The pause forced by the COVID-19 pandemic stopped MacKay's early momentum, and a decision by party organizers to extend the deadline for membership sales gave his rivals time to catch up. He also cited "ring rust" from being out of politics for five years and the immense reach of social media in amplifying minor errors.

But he also acknowledges that the premise upon which he ran his campaign was flawed.

"The plan was in retrospect too much focused on the next steps and not enough on winning the party," MacKay said. 

That plan: don't bother with negative attacks on other Conservatives or even the Liberals. Instead, present a new vision for the country.

That also meant sidestepping issues dear to some of the most powerful grassroots members of the party: social conservatives. 

"When you open the door to a crack of daylight on these social issues it becomes very very difficult to win the country, to present the party as modern, inclusive, as a party that is committed to focusing more on the economy than debating the past and I just made that very clear to my team from the beginning," he said. 

"It was exploited to the max, that this was disrespectful, that it wasn't inclusive to social conservatives. Not true, it was the same approach as Stephen Harper."

MacKay believed that clinching the win required what would be needed to win a general election. 

So his team focused on selling memberships to disaffected Liberals and to lapsed Tories in ridings where the party hasn't been strong before. In some areas, this paid off: membership growth was strong in the Atlantic provinces and in some urban centres. 

Rolling Stone Updates Top 500 Albums Of All-Time List

  Rolling Stone Updates Top 500 Albums Of All-Time List To include more diverse artists, Rolling Stone has updated its Top 500 Albums of All-Time list. The outlet released the original list almost two decades ago in 2003, but updated it in 2012. And now, Rolling Stone has completely revamped its entire list. Consequence Of Sound compared the old top 50 list to the brand new one and noticed a lot of changes. It looks like the 2003 version only featured three albums by female musicians in the top 50, with the first, Joni Mitchell’s Blue, not appearing until the 30th spot. Another noticeable difference is five Beatles albums, which all appeared in the top 14, are now spread out.

2020 ACM Awards Nominations: The Complete List. Where in Nashville are the ACM Awards taking place? Stars will take the stage at three different venues this year: the Grand Ole Opry House, the historic Ryman Auditorium and The Bluebird Café.

But the party uses a points system to choose a leader. Each of the 338 ridings in the country is worth 100 points. How many points a candidate gets is based on their percentage share of the vote. In ridings with tiny member counts, many of which are in Quebec, a handful of members can have an outsized influence on the results. 

MacKay's campaign thought it had a lock on Quebec, racing against the clock — and against O'Toole — to mount a massive get-out-the-vote effort in the final days. His team's projections, however, didn't match up against reality, MacKay admitted, and he's asked his team pointed questions to figure out why. 

That team was a mix of loyalists from his days with the PCs, newer recruits to the cause under Harper's leadership and a handful of slick campaign operatives credited with delivering victories for conservatives elsewhere in the country.  

Tensions within the team led to some missteps, MacKay acknowledged. He downplayed those errors, though they were seized upon by his rivals, like one where in an email he used a derogatory term for a transgender-rights bill.

But he said what really upended things was the COVID-19 pandemic. 

MacKay, with his history as leader of the former Progressive Conservative party has always been something of a celebrity among Tories: his presence at any event is guaranteed to bring people in, and his ability to rally a crowd comes naturally. His team had plotted a national cross-country tour that would get him in front of big groups he'd woo with rah-rah speeches on his vision for the country.

Making an appearance at the general meetings for the provincial conservative parties was also a priority; ahead of the shutdown MacKay attended both the Nova Scotia and Ontario PC events, though some grumbled he didn't put in enough facetime with attendees. He chalked his truncated time in Nova Scotia up to weather-related flight delays, and says he did work the circuit well into the wee hours of the morning in Ontario.

But the full stop put to those in-person opportunities by the pandemic meant MacKay was instead stuck in his basement, doing as many as six virtual meet-and-greets a day with hyper-engaged local partisans who wanted to pick over policies.  

Still, that his campaign managed to raise $3 million — though does have a debt of about $1 million — is proof that he succeeded on some fronts, he said. 

Four things we learned from Thursday's MLB playoff games

  Four things we learned from Thursday's MLB playoff games Thursday saw four Wild Card playoff games, with one postponed. Here's what we learned.After the eight-course playoff meal Major League Baseball served up to fans on Wednesday, the quadruple-header on Thursday seemed more like a rich dessert.

But. 

Of the three other candidates, two — Derek Sloan and Leslyn Lewis — came from the well-organized, well-funded and highly motivated social conservative wing of the party.

Even before the race had begun, MacKay was on the outs with that faction after describing social conservative issues as a "stinking albatross" around the party's neck in last fall's election campaign.

During the race itself, he was also captured on video telling social conservatives to "park" their concerns. 

Meanwhile, O'Toole, though he was publicly in support of LGBTQ rights and a woman's right to choose to terminate a pregnancy, made direct pitches to Sloan and Lewis supporters, saying he'd always respect their points of view.

The party uses a ranked ballot, and in the end, when Sloan dropped off, most of his support went to Lewis. When she dropped off, most of hers went to O'Toole, and that handed him the win. 

Social-conservative groups wasted little time claiming responsibility for his victory, while Conservatives' opponents in turn wasted little time warning that an O'Toole government would roll back rights. 

Social conservatives are on their way to making up a majority of the party's base, MacKay said, and whether and how the party can evade or redirect the line of attack that ultimately sank former leader Andrew Scheer rests on O'Toole. 

"The next election, if it comes soon, this is a penetrating statement of the obvious, but there isn't going to be a lot of time to nuance or address these issues that you raise: modernization, inclusivity, contrasting in a way that doesn't scare the masses who are not card-carrying members of any party," he said. 

Minor leaguers score win in quest for fair wages as Supreme Court dismisses MLB request

  Minor leaguers score win in quest for fair wages as Supreme Court dismisses MLB request Minor league baseball players scored a victory in their effort for higher wages Monday when the Supreme Court denied MLB request to dismiss lawsuit.On the first day of the new judicial session, the country's highest court denied Major League Baseball's request to dismiss a class action lawsuit for fair compensation. The news means Senne v. Royals, the case first filed in 2014 that has expanded to include thousands of ballplayers, will return to trial court after an appeals allowed the suit to move forward as a class action in August 2019.

MacKay claims no bitterness at his loss, but it seeps into his voice when he talks about how his rivals painted him as "Liberal-lite."

"Liberal-lite, come on, Liberal-lite on what? Foreign policy? Defence? National security? Policing? Mandatory minimum penalties?" he said. 

"From an objective perspective, which I cannot be, that is beyond insulting."

He used similar language to describe a claim from the O'Toole camp that MacKay operatives hacked into O'Toole's database and used material from there to leak videos. Disinformation that was circulated about MacKay's wife was also hurtful, he said.

Modern campaigns rely too heavily on stoking fear and anger, with candidates too often promoting themselves as standing in a crowd with "a pitchfork and a flaming torch," MacKay said.

That makes some people disengage entirely from politics, he said.

That's in part why, MacKay said, he sought to frame his efforts in a more positive light. 

"But what's that saying about nice guys?" he said.

They finish last. 

So, he and his family have moved back to Nova Scotia, where he had intended to go to run for a seat as party leader. He's not ruling out a run again anyway, he said, and has met with the riding association in Central Nova already. 

But MacKay said he's had a good run in politics, and if that's not where he returns, he's comfortable with that choice. 

"Being labelled a nice guy is not a bad thing."
