"Holy mother-forking shirtballs!" - You, seeing how cute you look in these outfits Eleanor Shellstrop Note: This article, and many of the links featured in it, contains spoilers!Ever since binge-watching The Good Place over the winter holidays, I've become thoroughly obsessed with the fantasy-comedy show's thought-provoking scenes, major plot twists, extremely clever sense of humor, and the way that the writers weave in lessons about major moral philosophers and their ideas. Of course, I also ...

Call For Political Action After Laquan McDonald Cases

CHICAGO (AP) — Activists and others who were disappointed by the outcome of two historic cases involving the killing of black teenager Laquan McDonald by a white Chicago police officer see a way forward — by turning tragedy into political power. A judge on Friday sentenced former Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke to less than seven years in prison for McDonald’s 2014 death. Video of Van Dyke firing 16 shots at McDonald as he walked away from the officer prompted protests, a U.S. Justice D...

Three times! Christopher Bell outduels Kyle Larson for 2019 Chili Bowl victory

Christopher Bell entered the record books Sunday morning by becoming just the second driver in Chili Bowl history to win the prestigious dirt Midget race three consecutive years. Bell, who drives for Joe Gibbs Racing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, didn't lead the 24-car A-Main championship race until the final turn of the final lap. The Oklahoma native took advantage of leader Kyle Larson getting stuck in traffic, then beat the full-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver to the line in...

LAUSD’s student decathletes wait and worry while teachers’ strike chips away at their chance to compete

“Today’s lesson is social activism and participatory democracy,” Heather Wilson, AP English and 9th Grade Honors English teacher at Bell High School, told her Academic Decathlon team this week as the LAUSD teachers strike trudged on. The labor dispute left students without their regular curriculum — and also shut down most of the clubs and extracurricular activities they look forward to. The Academic Decathlon, among the most anticipated annual events for student scholars, is just around the cor...

Christopher Bell survives caution-filled Chili Bowl Prelim

Christopher Bell survived the most caution-filled Feature of the week to win Thursday's preliminary night at the 33rd Annual Chili Bowl. His ability to hold the lead on restarts helped lock Bell into his seventh Saturday A-Feature since 2013. I pretty much suck on restarts.

The FBI Says Its Photo Analysis Is Scientific Evidence. Scientists Disagree.

The bureau’s image unit has linked defendants to crime photographs for decades using unproven techniques and baseless statistics. Studies have begun to raise doubts about the unit’s methods. At the FBI Laboratory in Quantico, Virginia, a team of about a half-dozen technicians analyzes pictures down to their pixels, trying to determine if the faces, hands, clothes or cars of suspects match images collected by investigators from cameras at crime scenes. The unit specializes in visual evidence...

Opal-Filled Fossils Reveal Timid, Dog-Size Dinosaur That Lived Down Under

When Mike Poben, an opal buyer and and fossil fanatic, bought a bucket of opal from an Australian mine, he was surprised to find to find what looked like an ancient tooth in the pile. Later, he also found a fossilized jaw piece -- one that was shiny and glistening with opal. After showing the two opalized specimens to paleontologists in 2014, Poben learned that they were part of a previously unknown dog-size dinosaur species, a new study finds. This dino lived about 100 million years ago in Au...

Audi and Mercedes-Benz unveiled theirs, while Nissan debuted a revision of an earlier debut, and Bell collaborated with Uber.

Antarctica’s once sleepy ice sheets have awoken. That's bad.

Antarctica — home to the greatest ice sheets on Earth — isn't just melting significantly faster than it was decades ago. Great masses of ice that scientists once presumed were largely immune to melting, are losing ample ice into the sea.  In a study published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers illustrate that the ice-clad continent is losing more than six times as much ice as it was in the 1980s. A "major contributor," the scientists emphasiz...

Terrorists Say Ignorant Grifters Lack Commitment.

Hoodlums with their hoods. The Telegraph reports that League Against Cruel Sports labelled 'parasitic organisation' by hunt saboteurs. Right.   A better title:  Terrorists say ignorant grifters lack commitment. LACS is a basket case, but it's always had one foot in the loony bin. A short history: The League began in Morden, a suburb of London in 1923. Henry Amos raised a protest against rabbit coursing, he was successful in motivating support and managed to achieve a ban.

Polite Movies? Not Interested: Karyn Kusama, Phil Hay, and Matt Manfredi on 'Destroyer'

None In one of the most uncharacteristic, gritty performances of her career, Nicole Kidman plays Erin Bell, a grizzled, self-destructive, veteran LAPD officer whose sordid past is revealed piece by tantalizing piece in Karyn Kusama's brutal, uncompromising cop drama, Destroyer (reviewed here on PopMatters). Co-writers Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi craft a slow-burn story that jumps around and jumbles Bell's timeline, following the emotional flow of her journey rather than its chronology. It's a st...

Bell has begun building Uber’s Air Taxis

The Nexus is a 6-propeller, 4-seater eVTOL from Bell. Showcased in part last year at CES, the company has now built the entire vehicle to scale, much to the delight of its viewers. Bell hopes to have the Nexus ready for flight by the mid-2020s, which means we aren’t far from Uber’s air-taxi takeover.The Nexus comes with a hybrid-electric propulsion system that allows it to travel further than a full-electric eVTOL. It seats 4 passengers and a driver, and coming from a company that practically ...

Bell Canada asks Canadians for permission to harvest and sell their browsing, location, viewing and other data

Bell Canada is the giant, diversified former national monopoly carrier that has been allowed to buy magazines, TV channels, and other users of its infrastructure, violating the cardinal separation of telcoms between services and carriers. As Bell has grown, the quality of the services it delivers and its relationship with its customers have declined, as the company sought ever-more-invasive, rapacious ways of serving its shareholders instead of the taxpayers who paid for its creation and b...

Uber air taxi partner unveils its Bell Nexus flying car

At CES, Fort Worth, Texas-based firm Bell revealed a full-scale model of its Nexus hybrid-electric air taxi that can take off and land vertically, and seat five people. The flying car/helicopter uses six tilting ducted fans to move through the air and make vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) maneuvers, and its hybrid propulsion system is said to allow for covering greater distances than a purely electric drivetrain. The company previously showed off the interior of its taxi concept at last year...

Nicole Kidman Wreaks Havoc in Karyn Kusama’s Disorienting 'Destroyer'

None It's hard to imagine a less family-friendly Christmas day film than Karyn Kusama's gruff, impassioned Destroyer, which stars Nicole Kidman as an alcoholic cop. Luckily, that much could be gleaned from promotional footage and photos, which feature a largely unrecognizable Kidman in a grey mop-like haircut and wrinkly, dry-as-dirt face makeup. That and the title should have been enough to steer those searching for purity away; this is less a tale of love than of vicious, animalistic vengeanc...

Failed white supremacist "law-and-order" Toronto mayoral candidate is now breaking the law by selling Canadian coat-of-arms merch

Faith Goldy is the white supremacist who failed in her bid for mayor of Toronto (despite an endorsement from US white supremacist Congressman Steve King); during her campaign, she unsuccessfully sued Canadian media monopolist Bell Media for refusing to run her ads, saddling her with an order to pay $43,117.90 in Bell's legal fees. Goldy's racism has gotten her kicked off of Paypal and Patreon, which rules out the easy options for crowdfunding, so she's turned to selling merchandise that be...
