The 56 biggest changes between Disney animated movies and their live-action remakes
Disney Disney has been remaking its animated classics as far back as 1996's "101 Dalmatians." With plenty more live-action remakes on the way, we examined the biggest changes that Disney has made in its remakes. 2019's "Dumbo" is almost unrecognizable from its 1941 version, with the addition of multiple new characters and the removal of the beloved Timothy Q. Mouse. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Disney has no less than 20 live-action movies in the works right now. Some appear to be faithful remakes of the original, like the recently released "Lady and the Tramp," while others are diverging from their source material, like the upcoming non-musical reimagining of "Mulan." But there have been a fair few Disney live-action remakes already, like "Alice in Wonderland," "Beauty and the Beast," and "Cinderella." We took a closer look to find the biggest changes Disney made when turning its animated classics into live-action blockbusters. Keep scrolling to learn more about Disney's biggest alterations."Lady and the Tramp" was part of the initial lineup when Disney Plus went live on November 12. One of the most needed changes was getting rid of the Siamese cats. Disney In the original, Aunt Sarah comes to dog-sit Lady and brings along her cats Si and Am, who are thinly veiled caricatures of Asian people, from their slanted eyes to their buckteeth to their voices — which were performed by a white woman, Peggy Lee. Their inclusion in the film led to Disney adding a disclaimer, saying that the film has "outdated cultural depictions." In the 2019 version, the cats are renamed Devon and Rex, and they are a different breed. They also sing a whole new song called "What a Shame." One of Lady's friends Jock was gender-swapped for the 2019 film and is now voiced by a woman. Disney In the original movie, Tramp, Jock, Bull, and Trusty are all male, while Lady and Peg are the sole female dogs. Adding Jock to the mix was a good way to even things out. The cast is more diverse, with Yvette Nicole Brown and Kiersey Clemons taking over previously white characters. Disney Ken Jeong, Adrian Martinez, Arturo Castro, and Parvesh Cheena are among the people of color with roles in the film, in addition to the voice cast of Tessa Thompson, Janelle Monáe, and Benedict Wong.

If you are horrified by the idea of a huge metal can being suddenly crushed by water pressure, this computer simulation of the San Juan's demise will rationalize and deepens your conviction never to set foot on a sub.

Trump wants to fire the intelligence watchdog who told Congress about the whistleblower's complaint
Reuters President Donald Trump has repeatedly discussed the possibility of firing Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community inspector general, The New York Times reported. Atkinson reviewed a whistleblower complaint against Trump and, after finding it to be urgent and credible, alerted Congress about it in accordance with US law. Trump is reportedly furious with Atkinson and doesn't understand why Atkinson shared the complaint with Congress. He also believes Atkinson's decision to do so shows he's disloyal to the president. There is no evidence that Atkinson acted improperly. The whistleblower's allegations have also been corroborated by a cascade of witness testimony; Trump's own public statements; statements made by the acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney; and a White House summary of the phone call at the center of the complaint. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. President Donald Trump wanted to fire Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community inspector general who deemed a whistleblower complaint about Trump to be urgent and credible, The New York Times reported, citing four people familiar with the discussions. Trump first expressed his anger toward Atkinson in September, when the complaint became public, the report said.

7 unbelievable facts about Thanksgiving food consumption in the US
Africa Studio/Shutterstock Thanksgiving is just a couple weeks away. There are some staggering statistics related to how much food Americans eat each Thanksgiving. Here are seven facts about how much we food we pack away during the holiday. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and Americans are already preparing for elaborate dinners with family and friends. Americans love Thanksgiving, and we show it by piling our plates high with turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, and other holiday staples. There's a reason why it's most Americans' second favorite holiday, according to The Harris Poll, trailing only Christmas. Here are seven unbelievable facts about what we eat on Thanksgiving to keep in mind as you go back for seconds.Around 46 million turkeys are eaten around Thanksgiving, according to the US Poultry and Egg Association. That's around as many turkeys as the entire population of Spain. Jessica Rinaldi/The Boston Globe via Getty Images American ate approximately 219 million turkeys in 2011, according to the association, so those 46 million turkeys represent around a fifth of all turkeys eaten for the entire year.  The average commercial turkey sold in grocery stores weighs just over 30 pounds, according to the Wall Street Journal. That means Americans are eating nearly 1.4 billion pounds of turkey during the holiday. Americans consume between 2,500 and 4,500 calories at the Thanksgiving table. That's the equivalent of eating between four and eight Big Macs in a single sitting. Thomas Barwick/Getty Images While no one literally eats their weight in food on Thanksgiving, many do end up satisfying their entire daily caloric intake from cocktail hour through dessert on holidays.  The New York Times  calculated that most people consumed around 2,500 calories consumed for their Thanksgiving meal, while Calorie Control Council put the number much higher, at 4,500 calories. For comparison, adult women should eat between 1,600 and 2,400 calories daily, according to the USDA's dietary guidelines. Men should consume between 2,000 and 3,000. Campbell's makes 40% of its total sales of cream of mushroom soup for the year leading up to Thanksgiving — and much of it goes into green bean casserole. Matthew Mead / AP Super-charging sales of a staple canned good is simple — if you can engineer an iconic side dish for one of America's major holidays.  The original green bean casserole recipe was designed by Dorcas Reilly in the Campbell's test kitchen in Camden, New Jersey in 1955, according to Smithsonian Magazine. Its six simple ingredients and quick preparation — it can be assembled in just 25 minutes — made it an instant classic.  The dish drives a whopping 40% of the company's cream of mushroom soup sales for the entire year, according to the magazine.  Today, around 20 million Americans serve green bean casserole as a holiday side dish each year, according to the Washington Post. It's also the signature holiday dish of the Midwest, according to statistics blog FiveThirtyEight.  See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:We made a 3-course feast using Chrissy Teigen's recipes, and had the best homemade pizza we've ever tasted13 horror films coming out in 2020 that scary-movie buffs can look forward toWe tried every single appetizer at Olive Garden and ranked them from worst to best

The Amex Platinum is available to active-duty servicemembers at no annual fee — but even with the fee, the credit card is a great value
American Express/Facebook The Platinum Card® from American Express offers a tremendous value to cardholders who travel, even with a high $550 annual fee. If you're an active-duty servicemember, Amex will waive your annual fee if you request it. The benefit is available as part of the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA).

Interior designers reveal the 10 decorating rules you should never break
Shutterstock Insider spoke to a group of interior designers to learn about the top decorating rules people should never break. One designer said that if you don't have a rug big enough for your space, you're better off having no rug at all. Buying all of your furniture from the same collection can make your space feel like a showroom. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The way you decorate your home is entirely up to you, but as you're decorating there are a few guidelines and design suggestions you may want to keep in mind.  Here are decorating rules you should never break, according to the experts.Having curtains that are too short can make your space feel incomplete. Shutterstock Lauren White, owner and principal designer at Ellen W. Interiors, told Insider that curtains should hit always hit the floor.  "Curtains that are too short are like wearing high-water pants," she said. "It does not look good and makes your space look unfinished." A too-small rug can throw off an entire room. Shutterstock A high-quality rug isn't cheap — and the bigger you go, the more expensive they become. Because of this, you may be tempted to go for a smaller, more affordable option even if that means sacrificing design. If that's the case, the best thing you can do is forgo a rug altogether, White said. "A rug that is too small takes away from the space, although you would hope it adds visual value. I would recommend not adding a rug if it's not scaled properly to space," she told Insider. But if you insist on getting a small rug, White said it should at least be able to sit under the front legs of your furniture pieces.  Ordering furniture without measuring your space can lead to expensive mistakes. Shutterstock It may seem like a no-brainer, but taking the time to measure your space is a crucial first step to a successful design, according to White. "The easiest way to do this is to get the dimensions of the furniture you're interested in, grab some blue painter's tape and create the shape of the furniture with the painter's tape and dimensions," she told Insider. "This will give you a visual guide to ensure your furniture will be functional in your space."

Creating fake neon signs with spray paint
Adam Fujita, aka Adam Fu, is an artist who creates neon signage using spray paint.  He uses a large range of similar colors — sometimes as many as seven shades to create the illusion of a glowing light.  He walked us through the process behind creating one of them. Visit for more stories.  Following is a transcript of the video.  Narrator: No, this isn't a neon sign. It's street art created in a way that tricks your eyes into believing it's glowing light. Adam Fujita, aka Adam Fu, has mastered the art of layering very specific colors in order to turn regular spray paint into something a little more luminescent. And while figuring out the technique to create this look, he has also mastered how to manipulate the human eye into seeing an entirely different material. But how does he do it? All of his projects start on his iPad. He uses an illustration app called Procreate to play around with typography and lettering. Adam uses it to map out the placement and scale of the piece according to the size of the wall the project will live on. Once that's all done, Adam preps the materials he'll need once he's on-site. This means pulling all the colors he'll need and extra cans of those colors in case he runs out. For this mural, he has prepared seven different colors in the yellow and orange shade range. Then it's time to take the design and tools to the site.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:An iconic bodega in the East Village is at risk of shuttering — here's why they hope a traditional NYC drink will help them surviveHow traditional French Camembert is made using raw milkA 10-year-old boy who used to get in trouble for doodling in school got a job drawing on the wall of a restaurant

Field Marshal Lord Bramall obituary
Former chief of the defence staff who served at D-day and was later embroiled in the Metropolitan Police’s Operation MidlandField Marshal Lord Bramall, who has died aged 95, was chief of the defence staff from 1982 until 1985, the pinnacle of a long military career that began just in time to land him on the beaches of Normandy as a freshly minted second lieutenant in the D-day invasion of June 1944.But in March 2015 he was drawn into the saga of claims of historical paedophilia and child abuse in high places that began with the unmasking of Jimmy Savile in 2012. Bramall’s cottage in a village near Farnham, Surrey, was raided by police as part of a co-ordinated initiative that also included the homes of Lord (Leon) Brittan, the former home secretary, who died in January 2015. All this was part of Operation Midland, set up by the Metropolitan police in response to allegations against a number of notable public figures. Continue reading...
