How The Mandalorian Can Work for Disney+
This story contains spoilers for Episode 2 of The Mandalorian.The first episode of The Mandalorian might’ve been too slight to carry the hopes of an entire streaming service, but two entries in, that sleekness is starting to look like an asset. When Disney+ launched last week, the flashiest original offering for subscribers was a show set in the Star Wars universe that felt consciously removed from the high stakes of the cinematic “Skywalker saga.” Set on the fringes of George Lucas’s galaxy and focusing on a nameless character identified only by his species, The Mandalorian had some crisply shot action, but only the barest hint of a plot.The second episode hit Disney+ on Friday (six more installments will follow weekly) and, being a little removed from the hype of the service’s launch, it functioned rather beautifully. The pilot followed the Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) as he was tasked with hunting a difficult, off-books bounty by the sinister Client (Werner Herzog). His travels led him to a desert planet where he realized his target was an infant alien, a member of Yoda’s unnamed species. The backstory of that wise, small, frog-like Jedi is one of the few things Star Wars creator George Lucas chose not to delve into in his much-maligned prequel trilogy. By building his show around a Yoda-esque baby, The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau could be changing that—giving people yet another reason to sign up for Disney+.The service debuted to 10 million subscribers, according to the company, even with initial technical problems. Despite the relative paucity of new programming on the site—one of the other original shows centers on the Toy Story 4 character Forky and has five-minute-long episodes—the nostalgia factor helped lure people in. Viewed alongside the database of animated classics, Marvel movies, and Star Wars material that the studio is offering, The Mandalorian makes sense: It’s a nerdy throwback that’s happy to exist on the margins of a bigger world.Filling in the gaps of Star Wars’ wider universe, it seems, will be the purpose of the blockbuster original programming on Disney+. The other announced Star Wars shows include one that will feature Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi, depicting his life in the years between the original and prequel trilogies. Another will follow Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), a character from the spinoff film Rogue One who worked as an operative in the heroic Rebel Alliance. The Marvel shows will similarly spotlight supporting characters from the cinematic universe such as Loki, Scarlet Witch, Vision and The Falcon, before introducing new comic-book characters such as Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk.Marvel president Kevin Feige has insisted that those shows will matter to the wider movie universe, knocking down the barriers between television and cinema for his colossal connected diegesis. But it’s likely those crossovers will only provide background information for devoted completionist fans. Marvel movies have always been designed so that casual viewers can understand the nuts and bolts of the plot without worrying about everything the Winter Soldier or Hawkeye have been up to.Star Wars is an even bigger sandbox to play in, and Episode 2 of The Mandalorian had fun dredging up minutiae from Lucas’s original trilogy. Coming in at a slender 33 minutes, it embraced the humor of its protagonist’s anonymous persona rather than using it to build suspense. “Chapter Two” saw the Mandalorian get battered by villainous rivals and huge desert fauna; it also re-introduced the impish Jawas (small, hooded scavengers who play a supporting role in the original Star Wars) as bugbears who torment our stoic hero.The episode reminded me of Star Wars: Clone Wars, a stunning 2003 series developed by the animation legend Genndy Tartakovsky (known for creating shows such as Dexter’s Laboratory and Samurai Jack). Clone Wars, which aired on Cartoon Network, similarly existed between two installments of the cinematic series, and relied on spectacular, dialogue-light action sequences that told stories with little unnecessary exposition. Watching the Mandalorian face off against a horde of Jawas or battle a hairy desert beast (with the assistance of his alien quarry, who possesses some modicum of Jedi power) had more pure, joyful energy than the dreary first episode.Favreau’s biggest inspiration for The Mandalorian appears to be Lone Wolf and Cub, a Japanese manga series about an assassin and his three-year-old son seeking revenge during the days of the Tokugawa Shogunate. Much as Lucas acknowledged that his movies were indebted to the cinema of Akira Kurosawa (Star Wars has the same broad plot strokes as The Hidden Fortress), Favreau is drawing on elemental tropes for a smaller tale. The Mandalorian probably won’t end its run as the most popular Star Wars story ever, but it is working to earn its spot at the apex of Disney+’s new programming.

When it's OK to work out with a cold and when you should stay in bed
Peter Bernik/Shutterstock Whether you should workout with a cold depends on the severity of your symptoms. Working out with a cold may relieve your congestion, but the relief is only temporary and could prolong your illness if you overexert yourself. A good rule of thumb is that if you are going to work out when you're sick, keep the intensity low. This article was reviewed by Rod Oskouian, MD, at the Swedish Neuroscience Institute. When your nose is dripping faster than the sweat from your pores, you might wonder if exercising with a cold is a good idea. While following a regular fitness routine is beneficial to your overall health, it's important to listen to your body and adjust your workouts when you're under the weather. See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: 9 items to avoid buying at CostcoSee Also:No, you cannot get sick from being cold.

26 celebrity moments that went viral in 2019
Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP; Joel C Ryan/Invision/AP; John Nacion/STAR MAX/IPx Insider rounded up the biggest, most talked-about celebrity moments of the year. Celebrities went viral for their priceless reactions, controversial actions, and outspoken comments (among other things).  2019's standout moments include Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's intimate Oscars performance, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello showing fans how they "really kiss," and Kylie Jenner singing "rise and shine" to daughter Stormi Webster. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Bebe Rexha famously called out designers who refused to dress her for the Grammys because she's a US size 8. Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP In January, the "Meant to Be" singer shared a video online, speaking out about designers who she said weren't interested in dressing her for the Grammys because of her size.  "If you don't like my fashion style or my music that's one thing," she captioned the video. "But don't say you can't dress someone that isn't a runway size. Empower women to love their bodies instead of making girls and women feel less than by their size." Rexha's words resonated with fans and followers and she was praised for speaking candidly. Speaking to Insider, the singer said that she "was a little scared putting it out because a lot of times, you don't want to come off like this person that's always complaining," "I had to put the video out because I felt hurt, and I can't believe the positive response that I got," she added. "It was incredible." Rexha went on to stun at the award show in a halter-style Monsoori red dress with multiple tiers of ruffles.  Nicole Kidman accidentally ignored Rami Malek while on stage at the Golden Globes. NBC At the 76th Golden Globes in January, Malek and the cast and crew of "Bohemian Rhapsody" went onstage to accept the award for best drama motion picture. Malek portrayed Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in the biopic. While navigating through the people on stage, the actor had a brief interaction with Kidman, who presented the award. During the quick exchange, Kidman seemed oblivious to Malek trying to get her attention. Days later during an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," the "Mr. Robot" star rewatched the "very awkward" viral moment and said: "I've known her for many years, despite as it may seem from that video." "I have a feeling this is probably haunting me on the internet," he added.  While backstage at the Critics' Choice Awards, Kidman told "Entertainment Tonight" that they're "really good friends" and she was "mortified" by the blunder.  Will Smith's blue Genie from the live-action 'Aladdin' movie was turned into a hilarious meme. Disney In February, Disney released a new trailer for the "Aladdin" live-action remake. When people saw the CGI version of Will Smith's blue genie, they expressed a lot of doubt about the design of the iconic character. A lot of people were also horrified by the appearance, despite being fans of the actor.  The blue genie went on to be turned into memes and Disney defended their take on the character's look. Smith also called the intense reactions "very funny."

NCAA basketball rankings: Duke, Louisville take over AP Poll
Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports ACC places four teams in the top seven. There’s another number one in college basketball as the Duke Blue Devils took over the top spot in this week’s AP Poll. For those keeping track at home, that’s three teams at No. 1 in three weeks as Michigan State and Kentucky held the top spots in the preseason and Week 1, respectively. The Louisville Cardinals moved up to No. 2, followed by Michigan State, Kansas, and North Carolina to round out the top five. Maryland jumped up one spot to No. 6, and the reigning national champs Virginia moved up two to No. 7 as their defense continues to set the standard this season. Kentucky dropped to No. 9 after falling to Evansville at Rupp Arena, the worst drop for teams that stayed in the rankings. This season has been full of upsets and close games already as no team has really established themselves as the team to beat. Three teams fell out of the rankings this week as two SEC teams — Florida and LSU — picked up losses and St. Mary’s fell to Winthrop. LSU picked up a loss on the road at VCU (now ranked No. 21) in a game negotiated as part of Will Wade’s buyout, and Florida followed up its loss to Florida State with one to UConn. The ACC, Big 12, and Pac-12 all had four teams in this week’s poll, with all four of the ACC squads coming in the top seven. Here is the full poll:

Chick-fil-A slightly less homophobic now
The popular fried chicken sandwich fast food chain Chick-fil-A has long been targeted by pro-human-rights groups for aligning with hate and homophobia. They say they will now focus giving on “education, homelessness & hunger.” “Years after splitting from actively anti-LGBTQ orgs, Chick-fil-A will stop funding two huge charities that have also opposed same-sex marriage: The Salvation Army & Fellowship of Christian Athletes,” reports Ethan Kraft at CNBC. Excerpt from CNBC's report: The fast-food chain’s foundation has donated millions of dollars to The Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Both organizations have a history of opposing same-sex marriage. Chick-fil-A said it no longer funds the organizations. “We made multi-year commitments to both organisations and we fulfilled those obligations in 2018,” a spokeswoman for Chick-fil-A told the Thomson Reuters Foundation, adding the company would focus its giving on “education, homelessness and hunger.” The Atlanta-based company has faced criticism in the past for its charitable donations and CEO Dan Cathy’s public comments opposing gay marriage.
