After several 'Fantastic Four' flops, Disney should use its upcoming Netflix competitor to revamp the franchise

The Disney-Fox merger closed on Wednesday, and Disney now owns the film rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four. Fox made three "Fantastic Four" movies in the last fifteen years, and none were resounding successes. The 2015 reboot is an infamous disaster. Disney should not rush the characters to the big screen, and instead utilize its upcoming streaming service, Disney+. With Disney's acquisition of Fox, which closed on Wednesday, Disney now owns Fox's film studio, many of its television asset...

5 ways to improve your garden this week, Mar. 23-29

1. Harvest time Continue harvesting winter crops and citrus. Remember – you don’t need to pick all your oranges, lemons, and other citrus when it first ripens. Most citrus fruits will hold on the tree – and become even sweeter – for several months. So harvest what you can use and let the rest of the fruits get sweeter. Then as more and more start to fall off, you can harvest the rest of the crop and share it. 2. Herbal remedy Refresh woody herb plants such as rosemary, sage, and tarragon by prun...

Why "Settling" Was The Best Decision I Ever Made

Most people are terrified of "settling" in their relationships. But don’t we all fall in love with imperfect partners in the end? Susan* is a 30-year-old Londoner who’s about to get engaged to someone who — on paper — probably wouldn’t meet half the criteria on her "ideal partner" checklist, yet is the person she sees her future with. We asked her to tell us more about the fantasy of love, the reality of relationships, and why settling doesn’t always mean that you could do better. As told to Cr...

Today's bake 3-15-2019: Mixed grain sourdough by a new/old method

Today's bake 3-15-2019: Mixed grain sourdough by a new/old method Submitted by dmsnyder on March 15, 2019 - 8:51pm. Sourdough BreadMarch, 2019David Snyder My recent trials of sourdough bread production methods have made some very good breads, but still not exactly what I want. I recall that, about 10 years ago, I baked some breads from a recipe developed by a home baker who was an active participant on The Fresh Loaf at the time, “Susan from San Diego.” At the time, I felt...

Comment on extra-flaky pie crust by Susan

I guess when you consider that Rugelach dough has even more fat than this recipe, just reducing the flour in regular pie dough is likely going to make a workable dough. It’s the folding that makes it so much flakier. I use a fraisage method for making pie dough now and when you smear out the dough to flatten the butter to sheets, then gather it together by scraping it into a pile in order to form you disks, it has a similar effect; it makes for a very flakey crust.

Jonathan Ward on Designing Without Corporate Interference, and Where Icon Could Go

In design school, we're taught that our greatest struggles will be design-based: Find the form. Improve the function. Source the best materials. Figure out the manufacturability. But spend a few years working in industrial design, and you'll often find those aren't the greatest struggles at all. Your greatest challenge is named Dennis and he's an uncooperative engineer.

The Role of Karma in Your Relationships

If you think karma is all about getting punishments for doing bad deeds, you probably got it all wrong. You see, Karma is an old Sanskrit word that simply means “deed”. Its ethical concept dates back thousands of years in India. To clarify all about it, let’s talk about its true meaning. What is Karma? Karma is actually the accumulation of our every thought, intention, and action from this and former lifetimes. It’s like a piece of luggage we carry with us on our trip from life to life. Only u...

Comment on artichoke gratin toasts by Susan

This was great and will be in our regular rotation. I had never cooked artichokes before, I used the frozen kind from TJs and it was not hard at all. I served it with a simple salad of romaine, avocado, and French dressing. Also, I made the artichoke/potatoe mixture during the day while my son was at school, put it in the fridge, and then just assembled and toasted right before we ate – it held up totally fine even after being in the fridge for a few hours. Thank you so much for having so many ...

Why Motivating People Doesn’t Work

Regardless of your responsibilities, you will inevitably face an individual or a team who appear unmotivated. Trying to motivate them is frustrating for everyone involved and it just doesn’t work. Susan Fowler—top leadership researcher, consultant, coach, and author of Why Motivating People Doesn’t Work…and What Does—says that you can’t actually motivate people: they are already motivated, but generally in superficial and short-term ways. Traditional carrot-and-stick techniques may result in tem...

I Make $42,000 — & I Haven’t Been On A Real Vacation In 7 Years

I love Instagram. I love all the baby pics and the silly Saturday night Instagram stories and the behind-the-scenes snaps from my favorite celebrities, and I don't care that it's all a little (or a lot) fake. But sometimes when I spend too much time mindlessly scrolling, I'm left with a bit of a social media hangover and the feeling that everyone is doing cooler stuff than me. I also frequently wonder how the hell everyone can afford these cool lives, whether they're regularly eating out at som...

Jim Steyer runs the powerful nonprofit Common Sense Media; now he’s using his influence to battle big tech

California Governor Gavin Newsom earlier today proposed a so-called digital dividend that would let consumers share in the profits generated by California-based tech companies that have been “collecting, curating and monetizing” their users’ personal data. Newsom added that he has asked his administration to develop a proposal for a “new data dividend for Californians, because we recognize that data has value, and it belongs to you.” It’s an idea that tech companies will surely argue against if ...

They were deported as kids. Now the Rubio sisters are California lawmakers

They spent their childhood on both sides of the Mexican border, on both sides of U.S. immigration laws. Dad was a factory worker, mom a housekeeper. The family spoke little English. In high school, in the 1980s, when Blanca and Susan Rubio expressed interest in college, a high school counselor suggested they look instead at home-economics classes to get ready for marriage and children. The Rubio sisters did not grow up imagining careers in elected office. “I used to believe you could only be in ...
