What is Doxxing, and Why Is It Bad?

Teguh Jati Prasetyo/ Doxxing is the collection and publishing of someone’s private information online, usually done with the intent of inciting harassment in real life. While not technically illegal, it’s considered harassment by most people, and there have been bills proposed to make it a crime. Do I Have to Worry About It? Probably not. Doxxing is generally a targeted abuse, similar to harassment in real life, and unless you’ve got a target on your back, you’re probably...

Smithfield market in London

The Smithfield district of London is famed for its meat market, its architecture, and its rich history as a centerpiece for conflict — often surrounding religion but sometimes focused on football. It’s also one of the most underrated neighborhoods of London. For anyone interested in London’s macabre past, Smithfield delivers in droves. Apart from the bloody meat market, Smithfield offers everything from famous execution sites to haunted buildings, as well as some of the best preserved histori...

On the Smugglers’ Radar

“On The Smugglers’ Radar” is a feature for books that have caught our eye: books we have heard of via other bloggers, directly from publishers, and/or from our regular incursions into the Amazon jungle. Thus, the Smugglers’ Radar was born. Because we want far more books than we can possibly buy or review (what else is new?), we thought we would make the Smugglers’ Radar into a weekly feature – so YOU can tell us which books you have on your radar as well!

Nam Nguyen edges teen phenom Stephen Gogolev for Canadian figure skating gold

SAINT JOHN, N.B. — Nam Nguyen had made a deal with his parents, the sole supporters of his career since he first stuffed his feet in figure skates. Either the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympic season would be his last, or he would start paying for his skating himself. He chose the latter. And when he edged 14-year-old phenom Stephen Gogolev to win his second Canadian figure skating title on Saturday, Nguyen credited the newfound balance in his life. "I'm very pleased with what I did tonight. It just...

Why You Should Consider Volunteering With a Search and Rescue Team

Editor’s note: This is a guest article from Graham Shea. This is the time of year when people are making goals towards their personal development. Yet the paradoxical thing about seeking to improve one’s self, is that it’s best accomplished by looking outside of it. A couple years ago I stumbled across an ad in the paper which said that my local search and rescue team was recruiting volunteers. SAR teams are called upon to help people who are in potential distress or imminent danger, often goin...

Netflix May Have Turned Down ‘Holmes and Watson’ for Being Too Elementary

No one likes Holmes and Watson, not even Netflix. The Sherlock Holmes comedy starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly is one of the worst-reviewed films of the year, and rumor has it, Sony saw this coming. After disastrous test-screenings, and several release date changes, the studio allegedly tried to sell the film off to Netflix. But Netflix, in a rare moment of restraint, said no. There are some great movies on Netflix – Roma being the latest example. But there’s also a fair amount of cra...

‘Holmes and Watson’ Reviews Earn the Film a Dreaded 0% on Rotten Tomatoes

When a studio avoids screening a movie for critics, it’s usually a bad sign. Holmes and Watson, a comedy that reunites the Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, hit theaters on Christmas Day, and not a single early review surfaced before that. Some committed critics ventured out to catch the flick on the holiday, though, and they clearly were not pleased with what they saw. As a result, the movie is now sitting at an alarming 0% on Rotten Tomatoes. Holmes and Watson Holmes and Watson should’...

‘Holmes & Watson’ Review: This Uninspired Parody Arrives Several Years Too Late

The warning signs come early in Holmes & Watson that this will be a painful experience. The cinematic reunion of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, a decade removed from Step Brothers , should be triumphant and hilarious, as opposed to a desperate, sweaty mess. But there are implications that the final product has been through the editing room multiple times, leaving a movie with no comedic rhythms or consistent tone. As the title suggests, Ferrell and Reilly play Sherlock Holmes and ...

All Guy Ritchie Movies Ranked

All Guy Ritchie Movies Ranked Inspired at a young age by 1969’s Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Guy Ritchie has always known the type of movie he’s wanted to make. Luckily for him and his vision, there’s no denying that Ritchie is a director who operates on a single stream of consciousness. His films are all distinctly his own, with a signature Ritchie flare that feels wholly original and wholly British. Like many of the most stylistic directors of our time, Ritchie never attended film s...

Review | The Hollow of Fear by Sherry Thomas

This series. My feelings for it are fierce and tangled, much like the ties that bind its protagonists. Charlotte, Lord Ingram, Livia, Inspector Treadles, Bancroft, Lady Ingram . . . characterize them each how you will, but there is nothing equivocal about them. While there is infinite room for every sort of gray area in their circumstances, their histories, and their difficult presents, the feelings that they engender (at least in me) are nothing if not strong one way or the other. And really, ...

‘Holmes and Watson’ Clip: Selfies Do More Harm Than Good

Even the greatest detective of all time struggles a bit with a selfie. The latest clip from the upcoming comedy Holmes & Watson shows the titular mystery-solving duo (Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly) requesting a picture with Queen Victoria (Pam Ferris), and possibly inventing the selfie long before the word entered today’s lexicon. But as the clip continues, we learn that perhaps there’s a reason that Watson’s newfangled invention never caught on. Holmes and Watson Clip Get your dose o...

Netflix’s ‘Dark Crystal’ Prequel Series Reveals First Look Photos and Star-Studded Voice Cast

Netflix is reviving a cult favorite for many children of the 1980s in the form of the prequel series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. The series serves as a follow-up to Jim Henson’s dark fantasy adventure The Dark Crystal from 1982, which featured some extremely impressive and immersive puppet work and production design. But don’t worry if you’ve never seen the original movie – this series is set long before the events of The Dark Crystal, telling a new epic story. Netflix has revealed...
