Comment on deep dark gingerbread waffles by Shell

Loved them! I am a gingerbread fanatic and thought they were delicious, especially loved the texture after they cool off for a few minutes. They do stick but it still worked out for me using my cheap proctor silex waffle maker and buttering between each waffle. I think they would make an excellent dessert, a bit too sweet for brunch.

Porter's Head: Rapper Porter Ray on His Latest Hip-Hop Opus, 'Eye of the Beholder'

None His talent caught the eye and ears of a kindred spirit, Ishmael Butler of Shabazz Palaces and Digable Planets, who clearly saw much of himself in the young upstart. Indeed, Porter Ray possesses a similarly skewed vision of hip-hop upheld by his far more experienced mentor. But Ray is wise beyond his years, exhibiting a firm sense of self which translates effortlessly in the recording studio. Butler, also an A&R at Sub Pop Records, brought the young rapper onboard at the label in 2015. Ray'...

How Netflix’s ‘Cowboy Bebop’ Series Can beat the Anime Adaptation Curse (And What It Can Borrow From Marvel and ‘Star Wars’)

Anime fans around the country clutched their chests in fear as they read the fateful words that Netflix is planning on adapting Cowboy Bebop into a 10 episode live-action miniseries. If you’re an American anime fan like me, then you’ve probably been a person who has had to suffer through several horrible live-action adaptations. It seems like Hollywood never gets their approach to live-action anime correct. Sometimes, it can seem like the industry doesn’t even try. Therefore, I’ve prov...

‘Your Name’ U.S. Remake Will Be “Through the Lens of a Western Viewpoint”

It’s the word that we all dread when we hear about a Hollywood remake of a wildly successful foreign-language property: “Americanized.” Often it comes with the territory of making an English-language remake of a foreign movie — after all you have to cater to your audience. But for Bad Robot, which is currently developing the U.S. Your Name remake with Arrival writer Eric Heisserer attached, it’s a tricky line to walk in lieu of a history of bad anime remakes and recent controversies around whit...

Trash & Treasure: Between the Firmaments by J.Y. Yang and In the Vanishers’ Palace by Aliette de Bodard

Trash & Treasure is a miscellany of monthly opinions on SFF, fandom and general geekness from Foz Meadows. Last month, I read two excellent novellas – Between the Firmaments by J.Y. Yang and In the Vanishers’ Palace by Aliette de Bodard – that struck me as being in conversation with one another. In terms of worldbuilding, both works blend magic, mythology and science fiction into a seamless new whole, while thematically, each story uses that backdrop to discuss the impact of (alien) colonisatio...

‘Bird Box’ Screenwriter Eric Heisserer on Building a Mysterious Post-Apocalypse and Working With Netflix [Interview]

Bird Box is set in a post-apocalyptic world where the exact cause of the apocalypse is never shown.

Malorie (Sandra Bullock) ends up in a stranger’s house where a group of survivors covers the windows, and the audience never sees the monstrous forces in Bird Box. Screenwriter Eric Heisserer adapted Bird Box from the novel by Josh Malerman. He previously adapted ...

Shell is tying executive pay to carbon emissions. Here's why it could create real impact

With greenhouse gas emissions, Shell's CEO will have to make even tougher strategic choices that balance emissions reductions (which could be costly to implement) against the annual and long-term goals of cash flow, write Radhakrishnan Gopalan, John Horn and Todd Milbourn of Washington University. The new pay-for-performance targets are also beneficial because they're non-financial metrics, which are much harder to manipulate at the end of the fiscal year since they're largely out of the CEO's c...

Shell links executive pay with carbon targets

One of the ongoing debates in ethical investment is over divestment vs engagement. The divestment movement holds that it is immoral to profit from fossil fuels, and that investors should withdraw their funds. The engagement counter-argument is that by holding shares you get to influence the company and potentially change it for good. One of […]
