2023 Cadillac Lyriq: Will This New EV Crossover Be Worth The Wait?

Don’t get me wrong, I particularly like the Cadillac Lyriq, and it boils down mainly to how it looks. My gosh, did Cadillac get it right this time around, huh!? But from how I see it, there are two problems. First, the Lyric you see here is not due for production until 2022, and that’s an issue considering the EV market is moving at a rapid pace already. And next, the Lyriq is a show car – or a concept, if you will – and Cadillac makes this clear in its press release. So yeah, you better hold...

Oilers Key Stories Heading Into Game 4: Ennis, Refs, More

The Edmonton Oilers will play for their playoff lives on Friday afternoon as they take on the Chicago Blackhawks in an elimination game four.

‘Star Trek’ Reboot From Noah Hawley is Now On Hold

Noah Hawley‘s Star Trek movie, which isn’t to be confused with the long-delayed Star Trek 4, is now on hold. Paramount actually has three different Trek movies on the backburner: Star Trek 4, the Star Trek movie that Quentin Tarantino was going to direct, and Hawley’s movie. The fate of all three remains in doubt now, and sources state that one of the reasons for the delay of Hawley’s film is that the plot involves a deadly virus, which audiences might not be in the mood for anytime soon. Ok...

Oilers Behind 8-Ball as Blackhawks Eke Out 4-3 Win

On April 30, 1986, on Steve Smith’s 23rd birthday, the Edmonton Oilers’ defenseman scored an own goal during Game 7 of the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. It was a backbreaker against a lower-ranked Calgary Flames team. Smith put the puck off goaltender Grant Fuhr from the side of the net. The goal ended a potential streak of three consecutive Stanley Cup wins. It took decades for Smith to live that goal down, but the Oilers shouldn’t have put themselves in that position against the F...

Fox News Host Sandra Smith Grills Kellyanne Conway on Trump’s COVID ‘Misinformation’

On Wednesday, Facebook finally took the long overdue step of removing a piece of Trump campaign content from its platform that pushed misinformation about COVID-19.

14 tech organizers and labor experts share their ideas for re-empowering American workers

Over the past half century, workers' wages have stagnated, their rights have been eroded, and whistleblowers have faced frequent retaliation for calling attention to the problems.
