'This is why people are so angry': Tech giants like Google, Facebook, and Uber built their empires on the backs of contractors. A pandemic is showing just how horrifically that model failed American workers.

Over the course of the last decade, the tech industry has spurred the rise of the gig economy.  "Gig economy" has since become something of a catch-all phrase to describe many sorts of non-standard work: independent contracting, temping, or working for a third-party contract firm.  Most companies in the tech world rely on non-standard workers: Uber or Instacart for tasks like driving and delivery services; Google and Facebook for tasks like content moderation and data analysis. Those workers a...

‘Love Wedding Repeat’ Trailer: Netflix’s Newest Rom-Com May Have a Secret Sci-Fi Twist

At first glance, Netflix’s newest romantic comedy Love Wedding Repeat does little to set itself apart from the rest of the streamer’s swooning catalogue besides a dry British humor that makes the film feel like a charming successor to Four Weddings and a Funeral. But hidden in the logline for Love Wedding Repeat — and perhaps even the title — is the hint that this rom-com starring Sam Claflin, Olivia Munn, and Freida Pinto may have a secret sci-fi twist. Watch the Love Wedding Repeat trailer be...

Coronavirus kitchen: What to stock, cook if you face a 14-day quarantine

As the novel coronavirus continues to spread in California and residents consider the possibility of self-quarantine, one can’t help but wonder: Am I really going to eat all the protein bars I hoarded at Costco? Not if you’re stuck at home for two weeks, potentially unwell or taking care of someone who is unwell. You did the right thing by stocking up on toilet paper, hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes. But, remember: This isn’t an earthquake stash. Should there be a quarantine — government o...

Senators’ Prospects at the World Juniors

The 2020 World Junior Championship was filled with upsets and excitement, making it one of the more memorable tournaments in recent years. It began with wild speculation about the ‘Group of Death’ – the nickname given to Group A that included Canada, Russia, USA, the Czech Republic and newcomer, but certainly no pushover, Germany. Many of the predictions were correct when, after two games, every team was tied with a win and a loss apiece. Adding to the tension was Canada, who arrived as a medal ...

This was 1970, the dawn of the Seventies, and with it the world welcomed Joni Mitchell’s “Ladies of the Canyon,” Disney’s “The Aristocats” and “Broom-Hilda,” a comic strip that blew the lid off the secret life of a centuries-old husband-hunting cigar-smoking witch. Also, the American Motor Corporation introduced its weird little subcompact the Gremlin on April 1, a joke that practically writes itself. There were goodbyes, too, in 1970.

The NHL’s Top 100 Prospects – Midseason Rankings

Prospects are always a hot topic in the NHL. What teams have the best farm systems? Who’s the best prospect for each team? Which prospect is better than another? There is constant discussion about prospects in the league, and the landscape is always changing. Prospects graduate, they get traded, they perform better or worse than expected, and sometimes they simply don’t make the cut. In recent years, it seems like the talent pool is getting deeper and better as the years go on. With a wealth ...

Hiring A Santa Claus Is Harder Than It Seems

HO HO HOLD UP. Santas for hire can be really hit or miss And there are some very important tips if you are hiring a Santa. You want a Santa that: 1 - Assumes the guests believe he is the real Santa.
