‘Doctor Who’ Tries to Resolve Its Identity Crisis With the Mostly Solid “Revolution of the Daleks”

For the past two seasons, Doctor Who has been going through an identity crisis. What kind of show is Doctor Who now? What kind of character is Jodie Whittaker‘s Doctor?

And now, as we head into a new year and the 3rd season of Chris Chibnall’s era (13th overall), we still have no idea what kind of show our bel...

The US and China are breaking up. The only question now is how ugly it will get.

Madoka Ikegami - Pool/Getty Images; Samantha Lee/Business Insider The question is not when or whether the US and China will decouple. Decoupling has already begun, and the questions now are how deep it will go and how smoothly it will be carried out. As Beijing has flexed its muscles in Asia and around the world, the US — along with much of the West — has stopped trusting Chinese leadership to act in good faith. Once participants in China's rise, Western nations now see it as adversarial....
