when he visits her in New York and Joan decides to tell him the truth Richard you see wants to travel the world and live his single-again life without plans or commitmentstaking care of a small child stands in the way of that Joan recognizes this the next morning too when shes frustrated by a scheduling mix-up with the babysitter and shouts "Youre ruining my life" as she walks out the door Ostensibly the remark was directed at the babysitter but the pause between the outburst and the sweet goodbye she gives her son suggests Joan wasnt sure whom her anger was directed at Fortunately Joan doesnt have to choose between romance and family as Richard shows up at her office with flowers and the offer to be apart of her and her sons life Is that all it takes for Joan to find the love she dreamed of Back at the Francis residence the Vietnam War comes into focus after being in the background so far this season Betty and Sally are paid a visit by a grown-up Glen Bishop whos rocking some serious 1970 sideburns as well as some serious sexual tension with Betty But as Sally quickly learns there is something more upsetting than the sight of your friend and your mom having a moment in front of youhaving that friend tell you hes enlisting in the army Or worsethat your friend could be enlisting because of your mom Thats what happens one afternoon when Glen appears in Bettys kitchen to make a move on her and tell her shes the reason hes enlisting Their relationship has always disturbed me and Betty takes a little too long to reject his advances on account of being married (come on Betty you cant think of any other reasons to say no) But its thanks to Glen that we get the episodes most moving scene (Sallys tearful goodbye phone call) so perhaps we should feel grateful to get something out of Glen that didn’t result in a hardcore case of the heebie-jeebies Thinking about whether Glen was going to live or die reminded me just how open-ended the fates of Mad Men characters might be in the end Unless theres a flash-forward in the works well never know if Glen survives the war and comes back for Betty Well never know in what ways Sally will follow in her parents footsteps as Don warns will happen in the bus station Heck we might not ever see Don figure out the questions he’s been wrestling with this whole time The episode ends with Don coming home and walking in on his real estate agent who has found a buyer for his apartment to their mutual surprise Just like that the place is sold Just like that Dons untethered from his belongings and his baggage with Megan And just like that hes left with a look on his face that seems to wonder: Now what Is that all there is The 10 Best Outfits From Mad Men Betty’s floral dress Her outfit for lunch with future husband Henry

talks on Monday North Korea agreed to send a 140-member orchestra troupe along with its athletic delegation to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang South Korea next month The historic foes agreed that the North Korean orchestra would perform in Seoul and Gangneung near the site of the Winter Games in the hopes of "[contributing] to improving relations and recovering the cultural homogeneity" of the Korean Peninsula South Korea’s Unification Ministry said News of the official North Korean delegation which the North said will also include its famous cheerleading squad and a press corp has raised speculation that the orchestra will be accompanied by another cadre of performers: Moranbong North Korea’s all-star pop group It hasn’t been confirmed whether or not Moranbong will attend the Games but here’s what you should know about North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s favorite band: Who are Moranbong The all-female group also known as the Moran Hill Orchestra was founded by Kim Jong Un in 2012 The North Korean leader reportedly handpicked the members himself as part of a “grandiose” cultural modernization effort according to Korean state media They’re known for their military uniform-style costumes extravagant stage shows and synthesizer-backed anthems that reveal a certain degree of Western cultural adoption in the pariah state They have performed in sequin-covered mini-dresses with Disney-themed backdrops and have even performed string-heavy instrumental covers of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” and the theme to the Rocky films Most of their repertoire however appears to be focused on one subject: the young North Korean leader himself “How can he be so kind” the lyrics to one ballad go “His smile is so warm and sweet I have no choice but to be taken by him and his warm heart” Why are they significant The troupe has performed at high-profile events in North Korea More significantly the regime has used them as a soft diplomacy tool bringing out the band to perform for a Cuban delegation in Sept 2015 Moranbong’s first international tour a three-concert calendar planned for Beijing in December 2015 was canceled after Chinese authorities objected to “anti-American” lyrics out of fear of escalating tensions Reuters reported The band resurfaced in February 2016 with a performance to celebrate a recent missile test Speculation has swirled that Moranbong could attend the PyeongChang Winter Games since former bandleader Hyon Song Wol who was reportedly promoted to the party’s Central Committee in October and is a prominent public figure was present at the inter-Korean talks in the truce village of Panmunjom on Monday What’s the controversy Moranbong’s songbook leans heavily on nationalism and revolutionary rhetoric including songs called “Advance of Socialism” and “We Love the Party Flag” which could risk falling foul of South Korea’s security laws according to the Guardian Performances including rocket imagery or praising North Korea’s weapons program would also likely rankle attendees particularly following a year of threatening rhetoric between Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump Other facts about Moranbong There is some confusion over how many members there are in the band with some sources saying 10 and others up to 20 There has also been a high turnover of members But each performer holds an official senior military position Hyon Song Wol is reportedly a colonel in the Korean People’s Army of the North They also play their own instruments In 2013 they were put on a regimented diet to standardize their waistlines according to North Korea watchers Sino-NK Amid a prolonged public absence in 2015 there was speculation that the band had been purged or replaced by the Chongbong Band a seven-member singing group that North Korea’s state news agency praised as a “promising revolutionary art troupe” according to the BBC The band reappeared shortly after Rumors about Hyon Song Wol have also romantically linked her to Kim Jong Un and she was thought to have been executed with a group of former performers in a sex-tinged scandal before reappearing on Korean television in 2014 Kim is married to Ri Sol Ju who is also believed to be a former performer with North Korea’s Unhasu Orchestra Write to Eli Meixler at [email protected] Three members of the original Spice Girls Melanie Brown (Scary Spice) Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) and

Wars announced Thursday a new partnership with Magic Leap a startup working on so-called “mixed reality” technology The two firms announced the arrangement during the Wired Business Conference presenting the video above as a demonstration of what might be possible when fusing Lucasfilm’s intellectual property with Magic Leap’s technology The footage while rudimentary in terms of plot offers an idea of the kinds of storytelling that might be possible with mixed reality Instead of virtual reality which offers users a completely digital environment mixed reality gives viewers the illusion that computer-generated images are inhabiting their real-world physical surroundings Magic Leap has yet to announce a consumer version of its product or many details about how it might work beyond demonstration videos like this one But CEO Rony Abovitz said Thursday that his goal is “to get all-day every day computing” meaning any eventual device might be a head-worn device that he would like users to wear as frequently as many people carry a smartphone today Lucasfilm Chief Technology Officer Rob Bredow floated that the device might allow users to “skin your world” adding visual elements from the Star Wars saga for instance to the real world around you Based in Florida Magic Leap has raised nearly $14 billion in funding from high-profile investors like Google and Andreessen Horowitz This new partnership meanwhile is sure to fuel speculation that Disney may be interested in acquiring the company for its technology and talent Still there are reasons for skepticism about Magic Leap Google Glass the most high-profile effort thus far to get consumers to wear a gadget on their face as they go about their day failed in part because people rejected the idea as too weird Others have worried that mixed reality could blend the real world and the digital one to an uncomfortable degree Another concern: a mixed-reality world could offer brands the chance to cover users’ environments in digital advertising Abovitz however said he views mixed reality as “a sacred space” “We don’t want this dystopian view of [alternative reality]” he said using an alternate term for mixed reality
