‘Sicario: Day of The Soldado’ Director Stefano Sollima on the Importance of Authenticity and Real Locations [Interview]

With Sicario: Day of The Soldado, director Stefano Sollima roughened the edges of screenwriter Taylor Sheridan‘s potential trilogy. With Kate Macy (Emily Blunt) no longer around, Sollima felt Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro) and Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) unleashed naturally meant things would turn bleaker. A crowd-pleasing thriller Sollima’s sequel is not, and nor should it be. It’s a suitably bleak and often unpleasant experience that reveals more about Alejandro and Graver without completely stri...

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Featurette: How the Stars Became Queen

Becoming a rock icon is always a difficult job, but playing one that’s still living? That’s a Herculean task that each of the stars, with the exception of Rami Malek, had to take on in Bohemian Rhapsody. That’s the equivalent of playing Mozart’s concertos while Mozart watches you like a hawk. But Gwilym Lee, Joseph Mazzello, and Ben Hardy were up to the task, as shown in the latest Bohemian Rhapsody featurette released by 20th Century Fox. Bohemian Rhapsody Featurette Rami Malek has bee...

USC football looks to reverse recent fortunes at Utah

The atmosphere should be hostile. When USC senior running back Aca’Cedric Ware was asked where Rice-Eccles Stadium ranked among the toughest opposing Pac-12 stadiums, he put it in his top three, alongside Autzen Stadium at Oregon and Husky Stadium at Washington. “Their fans are crazy,” Ware said. “It’s loud. But it’s also exciting. I can’t wait to play there again. Last time, it didn’t go so well, so hopefully we can make a change.” There’s a reason why the Trojans would be willing to show rever...

Seven Square Miles

Over at In Focus, still the world’s best photoblog (remember those!?), Alan Taylor is looking at different parts of the world from the same height. Spending time looking at the varying and beautiful images of our planet from above in Google Earth, zooming in and out at dizzying rates, I thought it would be interesting to compare all of these vistas at a fixed scale-to see what New York City, Venice, or the Grand Canyon would look like from the same virtual height. Each of the 38 images s...

Whicker: Dodgers honor their small-ball past in Game 5 victory

LOS ANGELES — In this battle of disruption and futurism, the Dodgers voluntarily lost themselves in the 1960s. They took high-level baseball back to the days of DC-3 flights, with sport coats and ties and a Bobby Darin soundtrack. They looked a lot like the mid-60s Dodgers, when Don Drysdale was supposedly told that Sandy Koufax had pitched a no-hitter. “Did he win?” Drysdale replied. On Wednesday, none of the last 15 Brewers who saw Clayton Kershaw got a hit. He was so sharp that Manager Dave R...

Former Top Waymo Engineer Altered Code To Go on 'Forbidden Routes', Report Says

In the early days of what ultimately became Waymo, Google's self-driving car division (known at the time as "Project Chauffeur"), there were "more than a dozen accidents, at least three of which were serious," according to a new article in The New Yorker . From a report: The magazine profiled Anthony Levandowski, the former Google engineer who was at the center of the Waymo v. Uber trade secrets lawsuit. According to the article, back in 2011, Levandowski also modified the autonomous software to...

Rep. Scott Taylor Paid Thousands To Alleged Signature Forgers As Recently As September

Since news first broke in early August that some of Rep. Scott Taylor’s (R-VA) paid campaign staffers had allegedly forged signatures on official election filings, the congressman has promised to hold anyone involved accountable. Filings from Taylor’s campaign Monday night, covering campaign expenses from July 1 through Sept. 30, show the opposite happened. Taylor’s campaign paid more than $40,000 to four of the staffers involved in the forgery allegations during that period, with payments co...

Spanish floral fiesta wedding at a unique venue in Ventura, CA

When your groom-to-be calls you “bridechilla” you know you are the ultimate relaxed bride. You’d never guess that Taylor + Jeff’s planning process was so laidback, considering how beautifully their “Spanish fiesta” (dubbed so by Fleur de Rye based on the tones they chose for their florals) theme came together. Then there’s their unique “venue”—California State University, Channel Islands—that they decided on after an impromptu late night stroll through campus. It was a rare spot that could acco...

Google Pixel 3 XL review

The smartphone arms race isn’t always pretty. The knock-down, drag-out fight between Apple and Samsung in particular has given rise to some nasty lawsuits and wincing commercials year in and out as the two companies invest millions in outdoing one another. But Google is playing another game entirely. The company has never really been concerned with battling it out over flashy designs and specs. It’s really exactly the sort of approach you’d expect from a software-first company. I won’t go so...

His Wife Went Home Too Soon: How God Comforted Hudson Taylor

One of the most precious promises in Scripture is that God “comforts us in all our affliction” (2 Corinthians 1:4). But for years I wondered, what does that mean? How does God comfort us? How do we actually experience this? What helped me with these questions, as much as anything, was the story of how God comforted Hudson Taylor (1832–1905). He met Maria Dyer on the mission field in China, and the two were married in 1858. In 1866, after some time back in England, Hudson and Maria returned...

How trade unions are addressing automation

The first wave of computerized automation caught trade unions flat-footed; already reeling from the Reagan-era attacks on labor, union leadership failed completely to come up with a coherent response to the automation of manufacturing industries (a notable exception was the longshoremans' union, which ensured that containerization led to massive pay raises and generous retirements for the workers whose work was largely eliminated by better shipping techniques). With a second wave of automat...

Whicker: Rough night for Yasmani Grandal, but he wasn’t alone in Dodgers’ Game 1 loss

MILWAUKEE — The jokes will begin soon. The Catch of the Day is when Yasmani Grandal successfully gloves Clayton Kershaw’s first pitch. Catch-22 is what happens when you throw Grandal 30 baseballs. Grandal had two passed balls and two errors, one of them a catcher’s interference just as the Dodgers were finally doing something right in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series on Friday night. But the Dodgers practically got him off that hook, and they did the same for Clayton Kershaw. In...

The Importance of Mentorship for New Christians

We all need others to encourage, challenge, and teach us, but this kind of mentorship is critical in the early stages of a new Christian life. But mentorship itself can be challenging, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the rhythms of walking through life with someone else. Making sure you have stimulating topics and questions for your mentee week in and week out can often be difficult. In Brand New: A 40-Day Guide to Life in Christ, Shilo Taylor gave new believers a brief and practical guide ...
