The Atlanta Braves traded outfielder Matt Kemp to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Adrian Gonzalez, Brandon McCarthy, Scott Kazmir and Charlie Culberson, the teams announced Saturday.

The Braves, who also received cash considerations in the deal, immediately designated Gonzalez for assignment after the veteran waived his no-trade clause since Atlanta already is set at first base with Freddie Freeman.

“This allows him the opportunity to go and find some playing time,” new Braves general manager Alex Anthopoulos said of Gonzalez.

[Some of her videos] take serious issues – like anxiety, the pressure to fit in, and internet trolls – and make them accessible and engaging for her viewers.”[8]

In 2017, Koshy became “the fastest YouTube personality to reach 10 million subscribers”.[9] As of December 2017, her main YouTube channel has over 12 million subscribers and more than 1.3 billion views,[10] making it the 80th most subscribed channel on the platform.[3] Videos on her main channel receive an average of nearly 10 million views.[11] The same month, her second YouTube channel had more than 5 million subscribers,[12] she had more than 14 million followers on Instagram,[13] more than 2.7 million on Facebook[14] and more than 1.6 million on Twitter.[15] By August 2017, her total social media penetration was approximately 45 million followers.[6][16]

A Madea Halloween,[6] and starred in the YouTube Red series, Jingle Ballin.[19] Koshy starred as Princess Aubrey in the 2016 comedy film FML.[20][21] In 2017, she played a recurring character, The Explorer, in the YouTube Red series Escape the Night.[22][23] Koshy is set to star in and co-produce a new YouTube Red series, Liza on Demand, premiering in 2018, “following the chaotic misadventures of the eponymous character” as she works to become an “elite tasker”[24] doing odd jobs for pay.[25]

Other activities

Koshy is one of the hosts on Total Request Live on MTV, which began to broadcast live daily in New York City in October 2017.[9][26] Her previous hosting experience includes the live preshow at the 2017 Golden Globes Awards,[9] which received 2.7 million live viewers on Twitter – a record for the medium.[6] She also hosted Nigel Lythgoe‘s series Every Single Step and was “the only social entertainer chosen to promote the 2016 MTV Movie Awards.”[21] Koshy also serves as a producer and developer of content for MTV.[27] Koshy was the first “digital star” interviewed for Vogue magazine’s “73 Questions” web series.[28]

Koshy collaborates with The Giving Keys, a jewelry company that employs and supports the formerly homeless population, on a necklace collection.[29]

Reception and awards

Koshy has won two Streamy Awards and a Teen Choice Award. She also received one nomination for a 2017 Shorty Award, one for a People’s Choice Award, two other Teen Choice Awards and two other Streamy Awards. Teen Vogue named Koshy to its 2016 list of “The 7 Female Comedians You Need to Know”.[39] The Hollywood Reporter included Koshy in its 2017 list of “15 Rising Crossover Stars”.[30] The Washington Post cited Koshy as one of the “funny women .. at the top of their game today [who] girls get to study” as models for comedy and empowerment.[40]

John Jurgensen of The Wall Street Journal described Koshy’s appeal as follows: “Her comedy is heavy on self-deprecation, slapstick and wordplay, more goofy than snarky. … One reason her sketches work for advertisers is the replay factor, [squeezing] in dozens of puns and double meanings, in part to encourage easily distracted viewers to re-watch. … Koshy has proven to be safe territory for established entertainment companies and advertisers who have fled from edgier online content”.[25]

Debra AnnDebbieMcGee (born 31 October 1958) is an English television, radio and stage performer who is best known as the assistant and widow of magician Paul Daniels. McGee is a former ballet dancer and for three years was artistic director of her own ballet company. She presents a Sunday morning show for BBC Radio Berkshire. Debbie made it to the final of BBC’s 2017 Strictly Come Dancing.

Early life and magic career[edit]

McGee was born in 1958[1] in Kingston upon Thames, to Patrick McGee and Lillian Howes.[2] When McGee was young her parents ran a corner shop. Later, her father worked for a large manufacturing firm making gold rings and other jewellery.[3]

McGee attended Our Lady Immaculate RC Primary School in Tolworth, followed by Tolworth Girls’ School, a secondary school also in Tolworth. At the age of 16 McGee auditioned for and won a place at the Royal Ballet School. After graduating, she joined the Iranian National Ballet Company in Tehran. Aged 19, she became part of the Corps de Ballet and later a soloist, but her ballet career was brought to an abrupt halt by the Iranian Revolution. She was forced to flee the country and returned to the UK with little in the way of money and possessions. Seeking new work she auditioned for the Bernard Delfont Organisation, which was responsible for a number of big summer resort shows and touring productions.[4][5][6]

Delfont found her a job performing on stage with magician Paul Daniels in his 1979 summer show in Great Yarmouth. She met Daniels on 23 May 1979 at rehearsals for the show, which were held at a church hall in London.[3][6][7]

She later joined Dougie Squires‘s Second Generation troupe as a dancer, which involved touring Europe with acts including Chris de Burgh and James Last. After winter work in pantomime, McGee joined Daniels again for his 1980 summer season in Bournemouth. She then performed in his London stage show It’s Magic, which opened on 10 December 1980 and which, by the time it closed 14 months later, had become the longest running magic shows ever to play in the West End.[4][unreliable source?]

McGee achieved national and international fame through television appearances with Daniels. After seeing her on stage in the West End, BBC producer John Fisher asked Debbie to appear in the BBC One series The Paul Daniels Magic Show, which had begun in 1979. That series continued until 1994 and regularly attracted audiences of 15 million in the UK and was sold to 43 countries.[8] Daniels regularly referred to McGee on his TV shows as “The lovely Debbie McGee”, a phrase that entered popular culture as a stereotype for magicians’ assistants.[9] Daniels and McGee were married in Buckinghamshire[10] in April 1988.[6][11]

In October 1991 McGee became one of the first female members of The Magic Circle, a society for British stage magicians. She celebrated by appearing on TV to perform a trick accompanied by Daniels as her assistant “The Lovely Paul”, who was not allowed to speak during the performance. [12][13]

McGee was the 2017 winner of the Magic Circle’s Maskelyne award “for services to British Magic”, the same award that her husband received in 1988.[14]

Debbie McGee’s pastimes include golf and she has played in celebrity charity events.[3] She has collaborated with novelist Susan Wilson on a number of books.[15] She is known for her work with dogs.[16][17]

Other work[edit]

Dance company[edit]

In 2000, McGee and Daniels set up Ballet Imaginaire to produce ballet shows and tour them around the country.[6]

Radio[edit]

In 2004 McGee presented Box Jumpers, a two-part radio documentary about magician’s assistants for BBC Radio 4.[9][18] She works as a presenter for BBC Radio Berkshire, where, since 8 June 2008, she has hosted a regular Sunday morning show from 9 am to noon.[19]

Television and film[edit]

In 2000, McGee and Daniels were the subjects of an episode of a documentary filmed by Louis Theroux. The episode, titled When Louis Met… Paul and Debbie, was broadcast on BBC Two.[20]

In 2001, McGee appeared in the documentary Paul Daniels in a Black Hole, which challenged Daniels to be recognised as a famed magician in the United States within one week.[citation needed]

McGee appeared on comedian Caroline Aherne‘s talk show The Mrs Merton Show in 1995;[21] Aherne’s character Mrs Merton asked McGee “what first attracted you to the millionaire Paul Daniels?”,[22] a joke which a poll later ranked as Britain’s second-best one-liner.[22] The couple later joked about the quip, with Daniels saying “when Debbie and I got married, I certainly wasn’t a millionaire and the other funny thing was Caroline had just married a millionaire so we thought that was hysterical”.[23] Calling the continuing popularity of the joke “lovely”, McGee credits the appearance on Mrs Merton for kickstarting her own fame, saying “after Mrs Merton people started to really recognise me. It gave us great publicity.”[24]

In October 2004, McGee and her husband appeared on The Farm, Five‘s version of the RTÉ show Celebrity Farm. In May 2006, she appeared on The X Factor: Battle of the Stars with her husband singing Let Me Entertain You by Robbie Williams. Debbie and Paul were knocked out in the first round of the talent show.

On 1 April 2007, McGee appeared along with her husband, Vanessa Feltz, and her fiancé Ben Ofoedu in a celebrity edition of Channel 4‘s hit reality television show Wife Swap. In 2008 McGee appeared on Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway. On 14 September 2010, McGee appeared on the celebrity version of Come Dine with Me.

In 2012, McGee made a cameo appearance as herself in an episode of the UK TV comedy drama Stella.

In 2017, McGee appeared alongside Nigel Havers, Simon Callow and Lorraine Chase in Celebrity Carry On Barging.

She took part in Celebrity MasterChef in 2017. In August 2017, it was announced that McGee would be appearing as a contestant on the fifteenth series of Strictly Come Dancing. Her professional dance partner is Giovanni Pernice.

In November 2017 she appeared alongside Chesney Hawkes in Celebrity Antiques Road Trip.[25]

Other activities[edit]

McGee continued to work alongside her husband in venues around the world. Also, according to the biography on her personal website, she has been writing a book for a long time. A cookery and party book written by McGee has appeared on WH Smith and Amazon websites called Dine with Debbie, although it is no longer in print.[5] In 2005 she became the brand ambassador for ‘Good Boy’ chocolates.[26]

In 2006 McGee and friend Sue Simons created modelling and casting agency Debbie McGee Models. The firm was criticised in the Daily Mail for taking fees from prospective models but not being able to find them work.[27]

In February 2009, McGee and Daniels appeared in Closer magazine in a picture recreating an image from an Armani advert that featured footballer David Beckham and his wife Victoria.[28] Later in the summer of that year, she appeared in a fringe theatre show in London called Frank’s Closet.[29]

On 21 August 2013, McGee took part in the Dead Air Podcast, a show hosted by Nick Lee and Rob Oldfield.[30]

From 9 December 2016 to 1 January 2017, McGee starred in the pantomime Aladdin as Slave of the Ring at the Grand Opera House, York.[31]

Nina Hoss (born 7 July 1975) is a German stage and film actress.

Early life[edit]

Hoss was born in Stuttgart, West Germany. Her father, Willi Hoss (de), was a German trade unionist and politician (member of the Bundestag in The Greens). Her mother, Heidemarie Rohweder (de), was an actress at Stuttgart National Theatre and later director of the Esslingen-based Württemberg State Playhouse (Württembergische Landesbühne Esslingen).

Career[edit]

Hoss acted in radio plays at the age of seven and appeared on stage for the first time at the age of 14.[1]

In 1997 she graduated from the Ernst Busch Academy of Dramatic Arts in Berlin. Her first major success was the title role Rosemarie Nitribitt of Bernd Eichinger‘s A Girl Called Rosemary in 1996, a period drama (based on an actual scandal) set in the 1950s that looks back at the days of West Germany’s postwar Wirtschaftswunder with a curdling cynicism.[2]

In 2000 she was one of the Shooting Stars at the Berlinale. Her close collaboration with director Christian Petzold has been extremely successful: she won the 2003 Adolf Grimme Award for her role in his film Something to Remind Me and two years later the Adolf Grimme Award in Gold for Wolfsburg. Her performance of Yella, earned her the Silver Bear for Best Actress at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2007 and the German Film Award in 2008.[3] Another collaboration with Petzold, Barbara, in which Hoss plays a doctor exiled to an East German provincial backwater in 1980, premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2011 and the Toronto International Film Festival in 2012. In a review of her 2009 film A Woman in Berlin, The New York Times remarked that Hoss, “whose strong frame and graceful bearing suggest both old-style movie-star glamour and Aryan ideals of feminine beauty, is an actress of haunting subtlety, and the film, episodic, ambitious and a few beats too long, is held together by the force of her performance.”[4]

Hoss has been a member of the Juries of the Locarno International Film Festival in 2009, and the Berlin International Film Festival in 2011. She was an ensemble member at the Deutsches Theater in Berlin from 1998 to 2013, where she appeared as Medea and as Franziska in Minna von Barnhelm (2005).[citation needed]

In 2012, she was appointed sole judge of the 2012 Alfred Kerr Acting Prize at the Berliner Theatertreffen.[5] In 2013, she joined the ensemble of the Schaubühne theatre in Berlin. She recorded a duet with the Welsh rock band Manic Street Preachers called “Europa geht durch mich” (“Europe goes through me”) for the album Futurology which was released on 7 July 2014.[6]

In July 2016 she was named as a member of the main competition jury for the 73rd Venice International Film Festival.[7]

Social and political commitment[edit]

Hoss supports the Make Poverty History campaign[8] and fights female genital mutilation. She is quoted as saying, “For me, genital mutilation, torture, is one of the worst crimes in the name of so-called honour on earth. I dream that it will be possible for this form of domination over women to be abandoned.”[9] In continuation of the work of her father she is committed as a Goodwill Ambassador of the State of Pará in Brazil against the destruction of the rain forest and to improve the living conditions of the indigenous people living there.[10]
