Let’s Talk About Alexsandr Kallus, One of the Most Underrated ‘Star Wars’ Characters Ever

With all the acclaim given to Star Wars: The  Clone Wars in recent years, it can be easy to overlook Dave Filoni’s other great animated Star Wars show, Star Wars Rebels . That makes some sense. For one, Rebels lacks the immediate proximity to a Star Wars property enjoyed by Clone Wars . While some familiar faces do appear, the show’s central cast is mostly populated with new characters. Many of the Rebels characters who are familiar originated in the earlier show, impl...

Junkyard Find: 1969 Chrysler Newport 4-Door Sedan

The Definition Of A Product Remains Elusive

We might argue as to the merits of the 4Ps of marketing, but do we even agree on what the Ps stand for? There’s been some (rather heated) discussions recently on social media regarding the 4Ps of marketing.

However, this is specifically about one of the marketing Ps – Product. A recent twe...

Report card: California cities, counties failing again on affordable housing goals

Only 3% of California’s cities and counties are fully on track to meet state goals to build sufficient housing — and 30% are failing to issue any permits at all for affordable housing, an analysis of state data shows. The Southern California News Group used that data to create its second annual housing permit report card for all 539 cities and counties in the state. Only 33 were doing well enough to earn an A, while 96 got an F. The average grade was a C-minus. There was some improvement from th...
