The Scandal Rocking California’s Weed Industry

Sometime in 2018, a Chicago-area union honcho named Joseph Senese started showing up at cannabis industry mixers in California.Senese represented himself as a leader of the National Production Workers Union, an Illinois-based outfit. As he put it to curious cannabis business owners and consultants, the union was getting into weed with a new California-based local called “ProTech Local 33.” The idea was to help West Coast cannabis businesses fulfill a labor-friendly licensing requirement necessar...

‘Fantasy Island’ Review: Stay Far, Far Away From Blumhouse’s Horror Getaway

Fantasy Island, the late ’70s/early ’80s TV series that made the catchphrase “The plane! The plane!” wildly popular, heads to the big screen thanks to the fright masters at Blumhouse. As is their want, Blumhouse has warped the show into a horror movie – a move that’s not entirely unprecedented. The original show had plenty of supernatural elements – there was even an episode featuring the Devil. And the old adage of “be careful what you wish for” has been exploited time and time again for scary...

The new program will be the third under Matternet’s belt; An earlier partnership with UPS has made some 1,900 flights at WakeMed hospital in North Carolina, and flights with SwissPos...

As Bushfires Rage, Australia Faces Another Challenge: Protecting National Mental Health

As wildfires continue blazing a deadly path through Australia, leaving destroyed homes and landscapes in their wake, people and countries around the world are coming together to offer financial and firefighting assistance. But with months of burning likely still to go, and 18 million acres of destruction already recorded, along with 24 lives lost, it’s clear that reconstruction will be a long process—both in terms of physical rebuilding, and psychological recovery. “Their national psyche wi...

How Lid Design Changes in 1967, '75 and '84 Led Us to Drink Coffee On-the-Go

To be clear, I don't think plastic disposable coffee cup lids are a good idea. But as product designers, I think it's helpful to know the history of so ubiquitous an object, and the role that design played in popularizing on-the-go coffee. (It's weird to think that for decades, coffee was something that was only drank while sitting down, in-situ, from a ceramic cup.)Big changes to the design of snap-on cup lids came in 1967, with the first pull tab; in 1975, with a pull-tab that could be folded ...

Uber sues California over the gig-worker law. Now what?

A new law that’s set to take effect in the new year is facing a lawsuit from a couple of the very workers it’s trying to protect — ride-hailing and delivery drivers — as well as the companies for which they work, Uber and Postmates. AB 5 codifies a state Supreme Court ruling, which last year adopted a simpler test for determining when a worker must be classified an employee and therefore entitled to a minimum wage and benefits. The test, which the UC Berkeley Labor Center estimates could apply t...

The Good And Bad Of The Decade

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Did you know that this decade was the only one in which the NHL had 10 different Hart Trophy winners? You do now. The teams that dominated the first half of the 10s — the Blackhawks and Kings — have become lottery-divers at its end, trapped by inevitable aging and management blunders dealing with the cap that was always meant to punish excellence. Don’t worry, though. America’s Outdoor Hockey Team — that’s Chicago, folks — will find a way to...

‘The Slaves Dread New Year’s Day the Worst’: The Grim History of January 1

Americans are likely to think of New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day as a time to celebrate the fresh start that a new year represents, but there is also a troubling side to the holiday’s history. In the years before the Civil War, the first day of the new year was often a heartbreaking one for enslaved people in the United States. In the African-American community, New Year’s Day used to be widely known as “Hiring Day” — or “Heartbreak Day,” as the African-American abolitionist journalist Wi...

‘Can’t See [Raiders] Getting Another Win,’ Says CBS13’s Marshall Harris

(CBS13) — The Oakland Raiders, in mid-November, seemed to have turned a corner. They were 6-4 and riding a three-game winning streak. Their burgeoning season included impressive wins over the then-relevant Chicago Bears and Indianapolis Colts. Derek Carr was playing efficiently. Josh Jacobs, one the season’s few bright spots, was piling up yards. The team seemed to be gelling in Jon Gruden’s second season. Then the Raiders ran into an unlikely brick wall — the 3-7 New York Jets. Sam Darnold torc...
