Pamela Anderson Takes On Ride-Hail Apps in #MeToo Campaign

NEW YORK -  The National Limousine Association's Ride Responsibly™ initiative and Promoting Awareness, Victim Empowerment (PAVE) have joined forces to produce a public service campaign, starring actress, activist and sexual violence survivor Pamela Anderson. The PSA draws attention to the vast number of sexual assaults that have occurred in ride-hailing vehicles and questions if these were caused by insufficient background check procedures. This PSA serves as a call-to-action following alarming revelations of sexual harassment and assault that reach far beyond Hollywood and Washington, D.C.

The video, titled "The Signs", is Pamela's second PSA for the Ride Responsibly initiative, and comes on the heels of the #MeToo movement. The PSA is a stark reminder that even getting from point A to B carries risk, particularly if you are not conscientious of the service that you choose. 

'This Is Us (Original Score),' Featuring Siddhartha Khosla's Original Compositions from NBC Hit Show, Released Today

LOS ANGELES - This is Us (Original Score), a companion to the show America loves, is available today via UMe for download purchase and streaming. With 23 original pieces from composer/musician Siddhartha Khosla's compelling score for the NBC hit show, the album is curated by "This Is Us" Creator/Executive Producer Dan Fogelman and his team, music supervisor Jennifer Pyken and Khosla. Each musical element is carefully woven throughout the series, with the evocative score and songs clearly defining a moment or serving as a gentle guide through the complex emotional journey.

"Dan Fogelman's extraordinary gift as a storyteller and his ability to write beautifully about the human condition inspires me," says Khosla. "My approach to the score is simple and timeless: A $25 beaten up acoustic guitar from a thrift store in Vermont, vintage acoustic guitars, my voice, hand-tapping on my wooden table to create the rhythmic pulse, and cellos. These sounds feel appropriate to support the raw emotional energy of the show.
