‘The Conjuring 3’ Will Take Viewers Away From the Traditional Haunted House Set-Up

If things had gone according to plan we would’ve seen The Conjuring 3, AKA The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, this year.

But if you’re craving just a glimpse of new footage, a new Conjuring featurette goes (briefly) behind-the-scenes of the new film, teasing a twist in the familiar Conjuring formula.

The week of pantomime-like negotiations that brought Britain back to the Brexit negotiating table

It was only a week ago that Boris Johnson declared the Brexit trade talks over, and said the UK would “embrace” WTO terms. Just days later, both sides were back around the table. The resumption of talks followed a series of carefully choreographed moves which saw the European Union meet British conditions to restart the negotiations. Many in Brussels have suggested that they never believed Boris Johnson was serious when he threatened a no deal Brexit. The EU is, after all, used to fiery summit w...

Why Is Socialism Becoming Less Scary?

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis.  In her extraordinary new documentary film, “The Big Scary ‘S’ Word,” director Yael Bridge examines the surprising rebirth of American socialism. “Socialism is as American as apple pie,” notes one of the film’s interviewees, Harvard University philosopher and activist Cornel West.

It should in yours, too.The role of the economy is to prioritise the creation of a safe and just space for humanity.It's not to deliver GDP or shareholder value. They follow. If you follow the wrong kpis, you behave the wrong way. The UK's Johnson government is not alone in getting this wrong.

What is Trump's healthcare plan? It looks a lot like Obamacare.

Demonstrators hold signs outside the US Capitol on June 26, 2018 in Washington, DC. Photo by Aaron P. Bernstein/Getty Images For years, Republicans have lambasted Obamacare, and promised that a full replacement for the Affordable Care Act is in the works. But more than 10 years after the ACA was signed into law, no major GOP replacement plan has surfaced. Trump's administration has instituted incremental changes to the landmark healthcare law, and zeroed out the universal coverage mandate....

"Trump weighs firing FBI chief..." "Trump aims for adulation..." — the Washington Post reports on the inside of Trump's head.

I feel a little embarrassed for the Washington Post, embarrassed and disgusted. They flaunt their disregard for journalistic standards with front page headlines that state — as if it were verified fact — what's going on in Trump's psyche. These are front page headlines right now:1. 1. "Trump aims for adulation. Biden goes virtual. The two are running vastly different presidential campaigns." The facts here are that Trump is doing rallies, while Biden is staying out of view. "Trump has been spen...

No, Mouthwash Will Not Save You From the Coronavirus

You may have noticed a rash of provocative headlines this week suggesting that mouthwash can "inactivate" coronaviruses and help curb their spread. While the news is based on a new study from researchers at the Penn State College of Medicine, it's important to note that the study focused on a coronavirus that causes common colds -- not the one that causes COVID-19. "Not only did the study not investigate this deadly new virus, but it also did not test whether mouthwash affects how viruses spread...

FCC Defends Helping Trump, Claims Authority Over Social Media Law
