Trial begins over insurance for 'suspicious' boat sinking

Trial begins over insurance for 'suspicious' boat sinking A civil trial getting underway in Providence will determine whether insurance companies should cover Nathan Carman's $85,000 claim for his boat that sank off New England in 2016. Insurers are refusing to pay the claim, saying Carman made suspicious alterations to the 31-foot vessel before leaving Rhode Island with his mother on a fishing trip. Carman, who lives in Vermont, was found eight days later in a life raft near Martha's Vineyard. Linda Carman is presumed dead. The federal judge hearing the non-jury trial that began on Tuesday says testimony will be limited to questions surrounding the insurance claim.

Lesson learned? Constance Wu addressed her Twitter scandal surrounding the renewal of her ABC sitcom, Fresh Off the Boat, three months after the debacle.

“It was moving to me how many people from the show reached out to me, and even on set … to say, ‘Just so you know, we love you and we know who you are, and you didn’t deserve any of that stuff.’ Because they also know that I’m an actress — I can be dramatic,” the 37-year-old Crazy Rich Asians star told the Los Angeles Times in an interview published on Thursday, August 29. “I’m emotional. But they also know that that doesn’t represent me because they have a hundred episodes of behavior that proves otherwise.”

Peer-to-peer boat rental marketplace Boatsetter raises $10M as it looks to grow globally

Peer-to-peer boat rental marketplace Boatsetter raises $10M as it looks to grow globally Obviously, not everyone owns a boat, and boat ownership is far more unique than car ownership -- which makes it maybe an ideal category for peer-to-peer marketplace rentals. P2P boat rental startup Boatsetter recognized this opportunity, and is now announcing a $10 million Series A "extension" funding round to help it grow its business, with investment led by WestCap Group and Valor Equity. Boatsetter counts itself the top peer-to-peer boat rental marketplace in the U.S., and offers insurance to boat renters, owners and captains alike through a just-announced strategic partnership with Geico.

“I’m not beating myself up for it because I know me,” she said. “But I don’t think I realized that people were paying so much attention to my Twitter.”

The Hustlers star ultimately was grateful for the criticism, pointing out that “it improved my awareness of what it means to be a … public figure.” She admitted to having “a back and forth about it. It’s the line between being a role model, but also authenticity.”

Wu further attributed the backlash to the seemingly flawless nature of social media.

“Nobody trips up,” she explained. “And sometimes I think, might it be good to see our heroes mess up a little bit and not always be perfect?”

The actress caused controversy in May when she reacted to Fresh Off the Boat’s season 6 pickup on Twitter. “So upset right now that I’m literally crying,” she tweeted at the time. “Ugh. F—k.” When a fan congratulated her on the “great news,” she replied: “No it’s not.”

Wu later deleted her tweets and clarified that her disappointment stemmed from a role she lost out on as a result of her continued commitment to the ABC series. In a lengthy apology, she wrote that she is “trying [her] best to use” her platform to push herself artistically. “People assumed that that meant I don’t love and enjoy FOTB,” she shared on Twitter. “But I do love and enjoy it. I hope you believe me.”
