Stock Price Reactions to ESG News: The Role of ESG Ratings and Disagreement

Company performance evaluations have included sell-side analyst forecasts, recommendations, and credit ratings, but a newer set has emerged: environmental, social, and governance (ESG) ratings.

LA County resists Blue Shield’s efforts to take over vaccine duties

Los Angeles County officials are resisting efforts by health insurer Blue Shield of California in their state-directed effort to coordinate vaccine distributions across-the-board. Public health officials said on Tuesday they met with representatives from the company last week and said — until their concerns are all met — the county will continue to administer the network it spent weeks building. “Public health will continue to play a lead role because we are the local government entity tasked wi...

A Starling Murmuration Magically Makes the Shape of a Bird

“After months of chasing these birds around Lough Ennell, Co. Westmeath [a lake in Ireland], James Crombie and I captured a unique display, writes Colin Hogg on YouTube. He’s referring to the video above, which–for one ever-brief moment–captures a murmuration of starlings forming the shape of a giant bird. It’s a pretty meta concept. Crombie also captured the moment with a photograph that graced the cover of The Irish Times. View it here. The newspaper provides some interesting backstory...

Celebrating 10 years of Chromebooks in education

A decade ago, we launched a small pilot program with a handful of schools. Council Bluffs in Iowa and Fon du Lac in Wisconsin were among the very first to use Chromebooks. Today, Chromebooks are as essential as a backpack for students learning in the US and in places like Australia, Brasil, Canada, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain and Sweden. As we celebrate our 10th birthday, we’re taking a look back at how far Chromebooks have come in the classroom, and announcing new feature...

Compare the Original Trailers of Classic Films with Their Modern Updates: Casablanca, Dog Day Afternoon & The Exorcist

You must remember this, a kiss is just a kiss and audiences’ taste in film trailers evolves, just like movies do. HBO Max is capitalizing on these shifts by releasing a series of Modern Trailers for some of the classic (and not so classic… looking at you, Gremlins) films streaming on its platform. Take the recut trailer for 1944’s Oscar winning Best Picture, Casablanca, above. Rather than using a narrator to deliver exposition, it’s supplied by dialogue, superimposed over moody shots of ...

How Looney Tunes & Other Classic Cartoons Helped Americans Become Musically Literate

Distance learning experiments on television long predate the medium’s use as a conduit for advertising and mass entertainment. “Before it became known as the ‘idiot box,’” writes Matt Novak at Smithsonian, “television was seen as the best hope for bringing enlightenment to the American people.” The federal government made way for educational programming during TV’s earliest years when the FCC reserved 242 noncommercial channels “to encourage educational programming.” Funding did not mate...

John Cleese’s Very Favorite Comedy Sketches

Asked by Time magazine to name his favorite sketches among all those he has written or performed in, John Cleese deliberately excluded most of his Monty Python work. Instead he turned deeper into his back pages, all the way to At Last the 1948 Show, which originally aired on ITV in 1967. (Its title referenced the long delays inflicted by television’s executive decision-making processes.) The program was conceived at the behest of broadcaster David Frost, who’d previously engaged Cleese a...
