Memes, Taraji P. Henson, and Janelle Monae: Box Office: "Hidden Figures' Beats "Rogue One' in Final Weekend Numbers thsou ja4 Fox’s “Hidden Figures” has topped Disney-Lucasfilm’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” by about $1 million for the No. 1 spot at the North American box office, with $22.8 million at 2,471 sites, final figures showed Monday. Sunday estimates had indicated that “Rogue One” was ahead by less than $200,000. But the comedy-drama “Hidden Figures” performed well ahead of those estimates on Sunday to deny “ RogueOne” a fourth consecutive box office crown. “ HiddenFigures,” which follows a group of pioneering African-American women in the early days of the American space program, had been forecast last week to take in between $16 million and $18 million. Taraji P. Henson stars as Katherine Johnson, a mathematician who, along with her colleagues Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae), helps launch astronaut John Glenn into space.Female customers dominated “Hidden Figures” business, comprising 64% of the audience. Fox domestic distribution chief Chris Aronson noted that “Hidden Figures” generated an A+ CinemaScore in all categories. On Sunday, “Rogue One” performed about in line with projections and finished its fourth weekend with $21.9 million at 4,175 locations, lifting its domestic total past $477 million in its first 24 days. The eighth “Star Wars” movie is now the eighth-largest domestic grosser of all time, trailing “Finding Dory” by less than $10 million. 17thsoulja blackqueens BlackIG17th

Beyonce, Brains, and Club: Black Female Physicist Develops Technology That Kills Cancer Cells With Lasers 17 lja4 @Regrann from @17thsoulja4 - Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green became the recent winner of a $1.1 million grant to further develop a technology she’s pioneered that uses laser-activated nanoparticles to treat cancer, AL reports. Green is one of fewer than 100 black female physicists in America. She lost her parents when she was young and was raised by her aunt and uncle. While in school her aunt died from cancer, and three months later her uncle was diagnosed with cancer, too. Green went on to earn her degree in physics at Alabama A&M University, being crowned Homecoming Queen while she was at it, before going on a full scholarship to the University of Alabama at Birmingham to earn her Masters and Ph.D. There Green would become the first to work out how to deliver nanoparticles into cancer cells exclusively, so that a laser could be used to remove them, and then successfully carry out her treatment on living animals. As she takes on her growing responsibilities, Green still makes time to speak at schools, Boys & Girls Clubs and other youth events. “Young black girls don’t see those role models (scientists) as often as they see Beyonce or Nicki Minaj,” says Green. “It’s important to know that our brains are capable of more.” 17thsoulja BlackIG17th blackexcellenceinmedicine🔬 - regrann Mediaoutrage
