Carter had been earning $2 million as editor of Vanity Fair; reports at the time of Jones’ hiring in November 2017 put her salary at $500,000. A Condé Nast insider, however, insisted this week that that figure was absurdly low and that Jones’ total compensation is in the seven figures. And while neither Condé Nast, a privately held company, or Jones will confirm reports that Vanity Fair’s editorial budget was cut by $14 million upon her arrival, Carter’s high-level (and highly paid) masthead editors were an immediate casualty of the changeover. Jones let go of about 20 people on Feb. 14 and 15, 2018, in what was promptly dubbed the “Valentine’s Day Massacre” within the Condé Nast offices at 1 World Trade Center.

Marvel’s “Jessica Jones” and “The Punisher” have been canceled at Netflix, Deadline reports. These cancellations officially end the Netflix and Marvel partnership that started in 2013 for the Marvel Defenders series.

The rather positive statement reflected nothing but pride in how all five of the shows faired. … [Read more...] about Netflix cancels Marvel shows ‘Jessica Jones’ and ‘The Punisher’

Spaniards leave home much later than everyone else Photo: AFP An enduring stereotype when it comes to Spaniards is that they live at home far longer than their European counterparts, enjoying all the home comforts madre can offer until often well into their 30s. This is most definitely true: a whopping 80 percent of Spaniards under 30 still live at home, but some Spaniards are more likely to live at home than others; while young Spanish women often fly the nest, young men are less inclined to leave home.
