Noting the notable "new crop of reform-minded prosecutors"

Though I do not expect a new wave of progressive prosecutors to radically change American criminal justice system, I do hope they can and will be important contributor to whole new conceptions of how to approach crime and punishment in the USA.  This new AP piece talks about some of the notable new folks taking office this year, and here are excerpts: To get elected as a district attorney, sounding tough on crime used to be the most effective campaign strategy. But in recent years, district att...

How to Free Your Heart At Christmas

We skipped church one Sunday morning. I suggested we go get donuts, something I’ve never said before. My husband looked shocked but quickly agreed with a smile. I appreciate his trust in me and how he goes along with my Spirit-led spontaneity. As the three of us blew into the tiny donut shop that smelled of sweet bread and warm caramel icing, I saw the sign overhead that read “Hold Tight to Jesus.” The woman behind the counter smiled with joy-filled eyes as we asked about their baked goods. A ma...

‘Mortal Engines’ Star Stephen Lang on Playing a Mummified Assassin, ‘Don’t Breathe’, ‘Avatar’ Sequels, and ‘Tombstone’ [Interview]

Over the course of a 37 year career, actor Stephen Lang has played his fair share of cowboys, marines, thugs, lawyers, cops, and more. But in Mortal Engines, he’s breaking new ground. In the new film, which hits theaters this week, Lang plays a “resurrected man” named Shrike, a mummified zombie assassin who’s on a never-ending hunt for protagonist Hester Shaw. I sat down with Lang last week and he told me about the tactics he wanted to avoid while playing this role, the physicality of the c...

‘Mortal Engines’ Visual Effects Team Talks About Solutions to Industry-Wide Problems, Bringing Those Moving Cities to Life, and More [Interview]

Mortal Engines director Christian Rivers is a protege of filmmaker Peter Jackson, who co-wrote and co-produced this adaptation with his The Lord of the Rings collaborators. This is a tight-knit group, so it’s no surprise that when they needed a company to tackle the visual challenges of a movie about a city that eats other cities, they turned to New Zealand-based Weta Digital, who have consistently proven to be one of the best in the world. Last week, I sat down with visual effects supervisor K...

With deadline looming for healthcare.gov enrollment, Stride offers direct enrollment for gig workers

Stride Health, the consumer healthcare consulting and optimization service, has inked a new partnership with the U.S. government’s healthcare departments to provide “enhanced direct enrollment” to verify tax credit eligibility and process enrollments on its platform.

Using the service freelancers, gig economy workers and bas...

‘Mortal Engines’ Review: A Confused and Messy Adaptation in Search of an Identity

I sat down last night at the screening of Mortal Engines , and had just about no idea what to expect. Greeted only by a bland, vague tagline and a pair of glaring blue eyes staring out from the screen, I wondered, “What is this movie all about?” The bland, vague tagline should have been enough of a hint. What unfolded once the lights went down was a film so in search of an identity of its own that it simply scavenged from the remnants of other, far more accomplished genre and/or fantasy stori...

Exclusive: ‘Avatar’ Sequels Are “More Complicated” For Stephen Lang’s Villain

Pop quiz: without any hints, can you recall the name of the villain in Avatar, the highest-grossing movie of all time? You may not remember his name – it’s Colonel Miles Quaritch, in case you were wondering – but you probably remember Stephen Lang‘s grizzled performance as the ruthless military man. Lang is coming back to reprise the role in James Cameron‘s Avatar sequels, and in a new interview, the actor told us about what we can expect from his character as the story continues. I sat down ...

‘Worst Possible Site’: SELC Sues to Protect Cumberland Island from Commercial Spaceport

Camden County, Georgia, is proposing to build a commercial spaceport that would launch orbital and sub-orbital rockets eastward over populated areas, including the Intercostal Waterway, Little Cumberland Island, and Cumberland Island National Seashore. But according to litigation filed by the Southern Environmental Law Center (SELC) on October 17, 2018, the risks of the project have not been fully disclosed to the public.

After Seven Seasons, Jessica Lang Dance To Shut Down

While Lang’s career as a choreographer has been going well, things (mostly money) for her company have been as difficult as for any small, independent dance troupe. “You have to raise so much money, the smaller companies don’t have enough staff, and Jessica was running the company for the last seven years without a day off,” said Lang’s manager. The group will disband in April, after completing a final tour.

Packers’ “cheap” approach with T.J. Lang was smart

A year and a half ago, the Packers watched as longtime starting guard T.J. Lang walked away to a division rival, the Lions, taking more money from Detroit than Green Bay was willing to pay. At the time, the Packers were criticized for that move. The Lions have placed Lang on injured reserve today, ending his second straight injury-plagued season in Detroit.

Dapper Day brings 20,000 to Disneyland to ‘turn it all the way up’ with dashing fashions

It’s that time of year again when parasols, bow ties, high heels and straw boater hats are more common at Disneyland than t-shirts, cargo shorts and flip flops.

What’s the best way to finish the Great Commission?

International (MNN) -- Before ascending to heaven, Christ gave His followers what came to be known as the Great Commission. Matthew 28:19 and 20 reads, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” Just over a third of those surveyed by Pew Research Center in 2015 – or, 2.3 billion people – claimed to follow Christ.(Graphic credit Pew Research Center) ...
