I have a tag for "dogs," but only one dog breed has its own tag.

ADDED: I'm looking at the Wikipedia entry for "Poodle." It begins: "For the political insult, see Poodle (insult). For the security vulnerability, see POODLE.

How to learn the basics of Mandarin

There is no language in the world as widely spoken or as ancient as Mandarin. With a written history dating back more than 3,000 years, Mandarin is the oldest written language still commonly spoken today, with around 917 million native speakers throughout the world. But despite its commonality, the potential for heinous mispronunciation and a complicated writing system has made Mandarin a notoriously difficult language to learn. This reputation is undeserved, however, as many people will find...

‘Doctor Who’ Offers Love in the Time of Ecological Horror in Season Highlight “Praxeus”

Doctor Who is inherently a cheesy and sentimental show — despite its sci-fi label, it’s about as far from the hard science and technological imaginings that the genre offers. The series has always been about a quirky time traveler who saves the day with compassion. Doctor Who is often at its best when its leaning into its big, overwrought emotions and delivering a humanist vision of sci-fi and, yes, when it lets the Doctor save the day with love. “Praxeus” is an explosive, big-budget episode th...

We got married just last year after a long relationship of 13 years and I branched out of our relationship before the wedding, having five one-night stands.

LAFC forward Adrien Perez ready for more responsibility

LOS ANGELES — When Los Angeles Football Club recruited Adrien Perez, the young forward was two years into his tenure playing indoor soccer for the Ottawa Fury.
