TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) \u2014 Filmmaker Michael Moore is looking to cast a manager to oversee Traverse City's historic State Theater.

The Academy Award winner announced the job opening in a weekend Facebook post.

The Grand Rapids Press reports (http://bit.ly/2lkc67n ) the Flint native says he's looking for a spirited film-lover who believes in the importance of experiencing movies in a theater atmosphere.

Moore was heavily involved in efforts to reopen the northern Michigan theater following a 2005 renovation. The century-old downtown theater closed in 1991 and reopened in 2007 following a renovation.

The theater was given to the Traverse City Film Festival by Grand Traverse Rotary Charities.

Moore founded the Traverse City Film Festival and continues to serve as the head of its board of directors and selects the theater's programming every week.

LOS ANGELES (AP) \u2014 Right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos was trying to clarify past comments on relationships between boys and older men after a conservative site posted a collection of edited video clips that set social media abuzz.

After the polarizing Breitbart News editor was invited this weekend to speak at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference sparked a backlash, the Reagan Battalion tweeted video clips Sunday in which Yiannopoulos discusses Jews, sexual consent, statutory rape, child abuse and homosexuality.

Yiannopoulos wrote on Facebook blamed deceptive editing and his own \"sloppy phrasing\" for any indication he supported pedophilia.

The British author says he spoke of his own relationship when he was 17 with a man who was 29. The age of consent in the U.K. is 16.

It's unclear who edited the videos.

Yiannopoulos writes for Breitbart News, considered by many a platform for the so-called \"alt-right\" movement, an offshoot of conservatism that mixes racism, white nationalism and populism.

The Reagan Battalion is a blog that describes itself as \"news, information, commentary, from a conservative perspective.\"

This story has been corrected to reflect the proper spelling of Milo Yiannopoulos' last name.

Are you in need of a new workout routine? Chances are, when you think about working out, dancing may not be the first thing that comes to mind. However, exercise doesn't have be regimented or in a group fitness class. You can break a sweat and have fun dancing to your favorite music just about anywhere. Not only is it fun, it also has lasting effects on your health.

Here are the top 5 benefits, as I see it:

1. Weight control and muscle tone. There are many styles of dance; some slow and steady and some that are quick and calculated. Whichever you choose to engage in, you can be sure that you are burning calories and improving muscle tone at the same time. Many people tend to overlook the importance of building muscle but if you have more muscle, your body will burn more calories throughout the day, thus increasing your resting metabolic rate. Get fit and have fun? Yes, please.

2. Posture.\u00a0Good posture has to be maintained. Long hours at a desk or too much time hunched over a laptop will lead to back pain and possible curvature of the spine. When we dance, we have to remember to keep our chins and chests up and shoulders back. This type of practice will not only improve our posture and prevent back pain, it will also aid in digestion and breathing.

3. Balance and flexibility. These two skills are necessary not only in dance but also in everyday life and especially as we age. Being able to stand on one foot or bend over and touch the toes is surprisingly difficult for many people (at all stages of life). Dancing not only improves your balance and flexibility, but it increases your confidence and blood flow at the same time. A warm-up and cool-down are essential before and after any dancing session.

4. Improved mood. When we dance, our brains release neurotransmitters known as endorphins. Have you ever heard of the \"runner's high\"? After prolonged exercise, such as running or dancing, endorphins and other compounds trigger this euphoric response. Sometimes, we need a little encouragement to get on the dance floor, but once you do, you'll be happy you did.

5. Making memories with friends. Being able to share your love of dance with someone special is a great bonding activity. Though choreographing a dance is particularly exhilarating, just letting your body move to the music is equally entertaining. The great thing about dance is that it enables you to paint a picture of the music using your body as the brush.

I've been dancing since the age of 3 and it\u2019s still one of my favorite activities. When I'm dancing, the world melts away and it's just me and the music.

So, don\u2019t just sit there, join me and bust a move.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) \u2014 The United States on Monday marks Presidents Day, a holiday that's taking on a new meaning for some Americans this year as President Donald Trump \u2014 to the dismay of some and delight of others \u2014 upends traditional notions of the office.

The holiday began as a celebration of George Washington's birthday, Feb. 22, and its official name remains Washington's Birthday.

Throughout the 19th century, communities celebrated with parades and fireworks, said Evan Phifer, a research historian at the White House Historical Association. In the late 1800s, Feb. 22 became a federal holiday.

The holiday was moved to the third Monday in February in 1971, creating a three-day weekend for many workers.

\"There was fear when the holiday was moved to the third Monday that it would lose the distinction of Washington's birthday, and people would forget his legacy,\" Phifer said.

To some extent, that has happened. Abraham Lincoln's birthday is Feb. 12, and many people now associate both presidents with the holiday. It has also become a retail holiday, where shoppers can get deals on cars, furniture and other goods during Presidents Day sales.

The Associated Press spoke with people around the country about their ideas about Presidents Day, the presidency and how it is changing.

___

Jack Warren is executive director of the Society of the Cincinnati, the nation's oldest patriotic organization, founded in 1783. George Washington was the first president general of the group.

He calls the idea of Presidents Day \"wrongheaded\" and said referring to Washington's Birthday as Presidents Day is a reflection of how out of touch we are with our revolutionary origins.

\"The revolution George Washington led created the first great republic since antiquity. It articulated ideals of universal liberty, natural rights and equality that have shaped the entire history of our country and have reached beyond it,\" he said.

\"We don't need a holiday to commemorate the presidency. We do need one to commemorate our greatest national leader.\"

___

Curt Viebranz is president and CEO of George Washington's Virginia estate, Mount Vernon. He expects between 10,000 and 15,000 people to visit on Monday.

\"We wouldn't have a country without him,\" he said. \"We wouldn't have a republic.\"

Many of the formal traditions of the presidency that survive today were established by Washington, he said, such as the open-air inauguration. But recent presidents are also different.

\"He's not a man who would have been tweeting, for sure. It's not going to happen,\" he said.

These days, people have a more informal connection to the institution: \"It's sort of the end of leadership as we know it, where the leader sets himself apart.\"

___

Juathawala Harris, 67, of Baltimore, was on a trip to Dallas that included a visit to the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, which is dedicated to telling the story of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Harris, who works as a manager for a dialysis unit, said Presidents Day meant more to her in the past.

\"We've lived through presidencies, and they have always been men that we look up to. That is not so for me now,\" said Harris, who voted for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

\"I am fearful now, and I've never been fearful in all of my years,\" she said, adding that she is scared the country may be moving toward a war.

Presidents Day, she said, now feels tarnished.

___

Robin Allweiss, a 56-year-old attorney from Tampa, Florida, considers herself a patriot and takes Presidents Day seriously \u2014 especially so this year. She is a Trump supporter and thinks he's vastly different than any other president in the country's history.

\"He relates to us. He gives us a feeling that he could be our father, our brother, he could be our cousin or our best friend, and that's what makes him so different. He doesn't care what anybody thinks. What he wants to do is make America great again,\" she said.

\"Donald Trump cares about us. And no other president in the history of the United States, or even any foreign leader, has cared about his country as much as Donald Trump.\"

___

Barbara Perry, presidential studies director at the nonpartisan Miller Center at the University of Virginia, has been fascinated by presidents since she was 4 years old and her mother took her to see John F. Kennedy speak one month before he was elected.

Children as young as 6 have a sense of the president \u2014 who he is and what he does \u2014 long before they understand Congress or the judiciary, she said, and teaching children about the president is an important way to help them understand our government.

\"I still have somewhat of a childlike vision of the presidency,\" she said. \"I know my faith is not misplaced. I know we have had heroic presidents. Even the ones who were not great still were, by and large, great people.\"

The presidency began to demystify under Franklin Roosevelt, who created personal connections with Americans through his radio \"fireside chats\" in the depths of the Great Depression, she said. That familiarity eventually \"ended up breeding contempt, I think, for normal presidents, or traditional presidents.\"

\"In the end, this has led to a Donald Trump, a populist demagogue in the White House,\" she said. \"The Trump presidency, based on the baser instincts of people, is painful to me. It feels like a desecration.\"

___

Deen Brown, 94, of Oakdale, Connecticut, conducted submarine war patrols for the Navy during World War II.

Brown said he has early memories of conversations in his home about Herbert Hoover, president from 1929 to 1933.

\"What is most impressive to me, and I still believe this firmly today, is the awe of the momentous decisions that they're called on to make. It is just beyond belief. And this was true for President Roosevelt and also for President Harry Truman, and it may be coming true today,\" he said. \"And very often, they don't get to choose between right and wrong. That's too simple. ... They must choose one of the wrongs and maybe the one that's least wrong.\"

President Donald Trump has already changed the way people see the presidency, he said, because he's a businessman who is being more decisive than some of his predecessors.

\"He certainly deserves the respect of the nation,\" he said.

___

Rhonda Bicknell, 39, who is in real estate investment, is based in Phoenix but spends most of the year traveling in a motor coach.

She said Presidents Day to her is \"really a day to honor that person that actually does a pretty thankless job \u2014 not matter what party you are in.\"

A Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton, she said presidents she has admired include Barack Obama and John F. Kennedy.

She feels that President Donald Trump is \"disgracing\" the presidency.

\"I don't think that this president has much class, or integrity, or even intelligence, to be honest,\" Bicknell said. \"So I think he's affected the presidency in a negative way, and I think that the rest of the world feels the same.\"

___

George Davenport, 23, works two jobs \u2014 one as a dishwasher and the other as a street sign-holding Statue of Liberty for a tax preparation service in St. Petersburg, Florida. He has two toddlers, and affordable education is his biggest concern for the future.

Presidents Day doesn't mean much to him.

\"It's really just another day where I work, and a day off for kids,\" he said.

___

Wendy Nelson, 59, a hairdresser in Helena, Montana, expects a busy day on Presidents Day, as legislators and government workers come in for haircuts and other services. \"They have that day off. I don't,\" she said.

\"Presidents Day means a celebration of leadership that we have in this country,\" Nelson said. \"We have independence, and we pick those people.\"

On Election Day, she picked Donald Trump. \"I wanted to see change. At first I thought he was kind of a scary guy. But the more I listened to him, the more I realized he's very independent, too. And that's what this country's about.\"

___

Helen Heenan, 69, was visiting The President's House on Wednesday. It's a permanent installation on the footprint of the home and executive mansion of Presidents George Washington and John Adams when Philadelphia was the capital.

Heenan, an American citizen and retired IT worker who lives in London, said Presidents Day is a reminder \"that the government is not just the president. It's the judiciary and it's the legislature,\" she said. \"I think that is the lifeblood of the American system and constitution, and the great presidents we have will respect that.\"

Heenan, who voted for Hillary Clinton, said she thinks President Donald Trump is testing the idea of the presidency \"to the limits\" but a positive outcome is that his actions are making people think about the role of the president.

___

George Cleveland, 64, of Tamworth, New Hampshire, was born into politics; his grandfather was President Grover Cleveland, who was elected in 1884 and 1892.

He will be spending Presidents Day taking a friend to the hospital to have shoulder surgery.

\"What does Presidents Day mean to me? Well, it's a nice idea to think that we'd all kind of take a day and review American history and the high points and the low points and what some of the presidents did and perhaps didn't do,\" he said. \"I'm afraid we don't do that. Presidents Day right now seems to be really more of a holiday.\"

___

Nareg Fradjian, 32, a photographer who lives in Pasadena, California, was among the 3,000 people to become a U.S. citizen during a Los Angeles ceremony on Wednesday. Frandjian is from Armenia and has been in the U.S. for the past 16 years.

\"Any president, they work super hard. It's either four or eight years. They live and breathe their job every single day,\" said Fradjian.

He said he would have voted for Trump if he had gotten his citizenship in time.

\"It's awesome to have that one designated day just to say 'Thank you.' This year, morale is down. We don't know where we are as a country. It's crazy,\" he said. \"Presidents Day is going to be another day for people to do marches, just say a lot of negative things about the current president.\"

___

Felicia Paul, who lives on the Flathead Indian Reservation in Montana, voted for Hillary Clinton.

\"My fears and my hopes as a Native person is that he thinks about the Native people, our treaty rights,\" Paul said.

What does the holiday mean to her?

\"As a Native American, I really don't call it a Presidents Day holiday,\" she said. \"I just think of it as an all-chief's day.\"

FLORIDA, N.Y. (AP) \u2014 When Denise Krohn came home to find her goldendoodle Kirby bleeding on the kitchen floor, she at first thought it was a terrible accident. But she soon realized that her home had been ransacked, and that her other dog, Quigley, was lying dead on his favorite blanket in the living room.

Burglars who tore through her hilltop farmhouse north of Albany made off with several televisions, a laptop, some cheap jewelry and change. And, police say, they apparently shot her friendly, goofy dogs on their way out the door.

\"It was just a mean, nasty thing,\" Krohn said.

A year later, the crime remains unsolved. But what bothers Krohn is that police told her that if someone is caught, they would likely get 25 years in jail for burglary, but no additional punishment for killing the dogs.

\"It's just not right,\" she said. \"I don't care about the TVs and other stuff. What hurts us every day is losing our dogs.\"

Krohn hopes to gain some measure of justice by making her pets the poster pups for New York state legislation that would make it a felony to harm a companion animal, even by accident, during the commission of a crime. Conviction would be punishable by a $5,000 fine and two years behind bars on top of the jail time for the burglary or other crime.

Dubbed \"Kirby and Quigley's Law\" for the slain dogs, the proposal currently faces an uphill fight among lawmakers. But if it does pass, experts say it would be one of the toughest animal-cruelty charges in the nation.

Diane Balkin, a former Denver prosecutor who's now with the Animal Legal Defense Fund, likened it to felony murder, a legal rule that allows someone to be charged with murder if they kill someone during the commission of another dangerous crime, even if the killing wasn't intentional.

Sen. Jim Tedisco, a Schenectady County Republican who first introduced the bill five years ago, said he was originally motivated by two cases in which heroin traffickers smuggled drugs in the stomachs of puppies and dogs and were charged with drug crimes but not animal cruelty.

\"Attorneys said it had nothing to do with cruelty, they were just smuggling heroin,\" Tedisco said. \"What this bill does is make it clear that if you harm a companion animal while committing another crime, you face an additional penalty.\"

Tedisco's spokesman said the measure is intended to apply only to cats and dogs. But the bill says \"companion animals,\" and a state appellate court once upheld a felony cruelty conviction under the current law of a man who stomped a goldfish to death.

The bill passed the state Senate 59-2 this month but has died in committees in the Assembly the past five sessions. Opposition has focused on whether such a law is really needed.

In the case of Kirby and Quigley, Balkin said the criminal could probably be charged under the existing cruelty law because the shooting was clearly an intentional act. The new law would also cover an unintentional act, such as hitting a pet with a getaway car.

\"This bill is unnecessary,\" said Assemblyman Joseph Lentol, a Brooklyn Democrat. \"It's already a crime to assault or kill an animal; it's already a felony if you do it with malicious intent.\"

Lentol said if the point of the law is to deter cruel acts, it makes no sense to expand it to include unintentional harm.

Publicity about Kirby and Quigley led several breeders to offer goldendoodle puppies to the Krohns. They now have 8-month-old Porter and 7-month-old Tedi, who's related to the blond, curly Quigley and looks just like him, right down to the joyful grin.

Krohn has already written a pile of letters to lawmakers and promised to keep fighting for the bill.

\"I never thought of myself as an animal activist,\" said Krohn, a retired teacher. \"I just want to do what's right.\"

LONDON (AP) \u2014 London Fashion Week neared its climax Sunday with shows by Preen, Topshop, Mulberry and others taking place at many sites in the more-chic-than-usual British capital.

A fleet of Mercedes-Benz sedans is ferrying VIPs from venue to venue as buyers, bloggers and wannabes gauge each show for that elusive dash of something special and off the wall. Not to be outdone, some have arrived at shows in a polished silver Rolls-Royce.

The pace of shows is a challenge for anyone trying not to miss a thing. The Monday slate is full as well, topped by the long-anticipated Burberry show.

ARISTOCRATIC CHIC AT MULBERRY

Amid all the political debate on Brexit, British identity was the topic of the day \u2014 even on the catwalk.

Designer Johnny Coca, who heads heritage brand Mulberry, on Sunday dished up his vision of British style \u2014 one that is aristocratic and traditional, though with some funky twists. Think horse riding and hunting while staying at an English country mansion: Tweeds, checks, nostalgic florals on faded wallpapers, pearls and heirloom jewelry.

\"It's all the things I like about the U.K.: the countryside, the hunting, the wallpaper, the checks and embroidery,\" Coca, who is Spanish, said backstage.

The show opened with models sporting head-to-toe brown and green checks, featured on box pleat skirts and mannish tweed blazers that look like they were borrowed from the models' fathers.

Then came a series of large quilted capes, which Coca said were inspired by horse blankets and the equestrian styles of English country dress. There were vintage rose prints that came from sofa fabrics found in the brand's archive, and pearl chains and oversized cameo locket pendants adorned the outfits.

The handbags \u2014 which are coveted by fans worldwide and the brand's bestselling items \u2014 had a vintage feel, too, with structured shapes that recalled hatboxes and antique luggage.

Much of the collection brought to mind the 1970s, with its earthy tones, crochet dresses, rich brocade and loose flowing skirts. That's because the clothes drew heavily from Mulberry's 1970s archive, Coca said.

In case things got too retro or stuffy, the designer inserted some modern and quirky touches. Models wore furry knee socks in bright green and mustard, and outfits featured bold clashing colors, such as an orange blouse paired with a purple skirt and turquoise boots.

TOPSHOP UNIQUE DOES BREEZY BOHEMIAN

She's a bohemian soul, living in the moment \u2014 Topshop Unique's latest offering is all about clothes that give off that carefree, freewheeling vibe.

The outfits may look thrown on and eclectic, but the look is anything but effortless. Getting the dressed down cool girl look just right requires careful layering and thought.

Staged in a basement hall in London's Tate Modern art gallery, the label's show featured models in figure-hugging, bias-cut slip dresses \u2014 some with high slits \u2014 that were layered under graphic sweatshirts, oversized sweaters and outdoorsy fleeces.

Elsewhere, super-short mini-skirts in high-shine primary colors and satiny, striped wide trousers were paired with sporty striped tops.

As always with Topshop, there was plenty of fun and attention-grabbing party wear, too. A huge, fluffy orange coat stood out, as well as some silver sequined dresses adorned with bright floral embroidery.

PREEN MAKES IT MARK IN SPRINGTIME SETTING

It's time for fall and winter collections, but the space set up by Preen by Thornton Bregazzi had a springtime feel more in tune with the British countryside with painted splashes of color suggesting flowers bursting into bloom.

This cheerful feeling pervaded the collection, with many black outfits set off by floral themes relying on fine embroidery and other outfits featuring reds and blues.

The models wore smeared red lipstick (evocative of a kiss, the designers said) and the choices were unusual, including a black and white shearling coat worn over a black floral bra.

Gowns were styled off the shoulder, and flat shoes and boots featured pale pink, a color seen in a number of outfits in the first few days of fashion week.

There was also a traditionally tailored tweed suit, as might have been in style a century ago, but set off with an oversize, bright green color, and a lingerie-style dress.

Designers Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi displayed photos of books they said had helped inspire the collection, including works by poet Carol Ann Duffy, the photographer Christina Boom and the artist Tracey Emin.

\"It's just a celebration of women throughout history and the importance of women who have something to say,\" Thornton said of the collection.
