Change in Film Daze Payment Policy — September 2021

Dear Film Daze readers,

 

In light of feedback from our writers, we have realized that we can, and will, do better when it comes to compensating our authors for their labor in a fair and timely fashion. We realize that our current policy of payment being issued 40 days after a piece’s publication is not acceptable for our writers.

Effective for all pitches accepted and pieces published after October 1, payment for authors will be issued 14 days after publication for all essays and reviews. Festival coverage totaling or exceeding $150 will be paid together on or within 30 days of publishing. Editors will be paid on the same day as the writer for the piece they worked on.

Pitches accepted and published before then are still under the 40 day pay policy writers agreed to as we adjust our payment system, but we will make an effort to get payments out sooner.

Most of our staff and writers are either full-time students or work full time, and while we cannot pay salaries in line with other larger publications, we aim to compensate our writers fairly in accordance with our policies and, starting now, in a much more timely fashion. Film Daze is a not-for-profit venture and prides itself on not running ads, and our publication relies on Patreon and Substack support and donations, which all goes back into our budget for commissioning pieces and paying our writers and editors.

We aim to be as transparent as possible about our pay rates for staff writers/guest writers and our process, and are always here to answer any questions or respond to concerns, whether through our email or on Twitter.

To support the site and gain access to exclusive content, consider becoming a patron.

Drake celebrated his 35th birthday over the weekend with a “Cocaine Cowboys” themed soiree that reportedly had its share of scuffles. According to an alleged witness from outside of the party, “Black Ink” star Sky Days seemingly got into a physical altercation with a woman on the street outside the venue.

The clip uploaded to Twitter is captioned ‘not them beating up Sky outside Drake’s party.’ The video shows Sky being scooped off the concrete by an unknown man as a woman turns towards Sky and says, “I literally went behind her and she pushed me.” Sky, surprisingly was pretty quiet in response, dusting herself off and walking away. The majority of the video is inaudible thereafter, but its pretty CLEAR some kind of intense altercation went on right before Sky was helped up from the pavement.

 

Maybe Drake had the ladies really excited to get inside his party??? Supposedly, the men were too according to witnesses. The viral clip of Sky being scooped off the floor was later uploaded to The Neighborhood Talk blog where reality star Meghan James also shared her experience in the comments, saying,

“I almost got in to 3 fights, and one was with a n*gga who pushed me. Don’t f*ckin push me bc I push back. Period.”

Welp! In related news, Sky seems to still be sharing her big personality on TikTok despite being off of reality TV, for now.

24 lawmakers signed a letter to Dr. Anthony Fauci who approved grants to fund horrific experiments on adorable beagle puppies.

The White Coat Waste Project, a nonprofit organization, obtained documents and photos about the experiments on beagle puppies in Bethesda, Maryland in 2016 and Tunisia, Africa in 2018 and 2019.

In one photo released by the White Coat Waste Project, two drugged beagle puppies lay on a table with their heads trapped inside mesh cages.

The cages were filled with flesh-eating sand flies that ate the dogs alive.

The dogs’ vocal cords were cut so the laboratory staff could work in peace.

Purebred beagle puppies sell for $500 to $5,000 in the U.S.

The beagle puppies were used in research for anti-parasitic medications.

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) does not require drugs such as anti-parasitic medications to be tested on dogs.

Dr. Fauci is a clinical associate with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the director of The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).

The NIAID, led by Fauci, reportedly spent $2 million on the beagle research project.

White Coat Waste told Changing America:

“Our investigators show that Fauci’s NIH division shipped part of a $375,800 grant to a lab in Tunisia to drug beagles and lock their heads in mesh cages filled with hungry sand flies so that the insects could eat them alive. They also locked beagles alone in cages in the desert overnight for nine consecutive nights to use them as bait to attract infectious sand flies.”

South Carolina Congresswoman Nancy Mace wrote a letter to the NIH after learning of the investigation by the White Coat Waste Project.

Fifteen House Republicans and 9 House Democrats signed the letter asking Fauci to explain why beagle puppies were used in the heinous experiments.

It’s been nearly a month since Dale and Clare broke up for good. After the split, Clare seemed to throw shade at Dale in a message she wrote on her Instagram Story. “I’m choosing not to speak right now on the details of my relationship, because at the end of the day anyone can put on an ACT or throw words together to form any narrative they want,” Clare wrote.

The pair had reunited in February 2021 after calling it quits a month before. At the time of their breakup in January, Dale penned a long Instagram message explaining the split.

“I wanted share with you all that Clare and I have decided to go our separate ways,” he wrote. “We appreciate the love and support we’ve received from so many people, but this is the healthiest decision for both of us at this time. We strongly believe in leading with love and always remaining true to oneself — something our families have taught and instilled in us throughout our lives. We only hope the best things for one another.”

Clare and Dale first crossed paths on her season of The Bachelorette. “I definitely feel like I just met my husband,” she said after meeting Dale. “Every other guy, I felt confident with, but with Dale, everything else went dark around me. I felt everything that I haven’t felt ever.”

Clare gave Dale the coveted First Impression Rose on night one. Their relationship escalated from there. Midway through the season, Clare broke up with her remaining suitors. Clare and Dale got engaged and left the show together.
