San Fransisco to Park City | Ski Road Trip

words by Melissa FieldsWhile multiple flights arrive and depart between San Francisco’s three airports and daily, the advantages of driving to Utah’s Powder Paradise are many. Road tripping allows you to check out cool attractions along the way; there’s no baggage weight limits in your car—particularly nice considering the heavy clothing and gear required for a ski trip; and with the post-pandemic resurgence of airline travel, driving—even with an en route hotel stay—is more economical. Throw i...

The Real-Life Moment That Made Steven Spielberg Fall In Love With Space

One of the key traits that sets Steven Spielberg's best blockbusters apart from other tentpoles is their sense of awe for the natural world. Even "Jaws" and "Jurassic Park" treat the dangerous creatures at the heart of their stories with a blend of fear and wonder, as opposed to seeing them as nothing more than human-snacking monsters. The same could be said for how Spielberg portrays outer space in his movies. As worlds apart (no pun intended) as the aliens in "Close Encounters of the Third Kin...

Watch 88MPH, A Documentary On The Greatest Movie Car Of All Time

There is no doubt about it. You can debate all you want, but the greatest movie car of all time is the 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 from 1985's "Back to the Future." I mean, yeah, there's the Batmobile and Bumblebee, but really, the crazy doors, the OUTATIME license plate, and the fact that it's clearly responsible for Christopher Lloyd never ageing means it's the cream of the crop. (Seriously, that man has been the same age since the 1980s. Exactly. The. Same!There is now a documentary out called "88MP...

12 Movies Like The Matrix Sci-Fi Fans Have To Check Out

In 1999, fans were highly anticipating the release of the "Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace," which had been generating hype since its trailer debut the previous November. However, while science fiction aficionados ended up largely disappointed with the direction of George Lucas' prequel, there was another, unexpected place to turn for a mind-bending narrative and state of the art special effects: "The Matrix." The Wachowski's game-changing action flick beat "Star Wars" to theaters by l...

Does Critical Race Theory Threaten the Gospel?

A lot of evangelicals are saying it does but I don’t see how. Over the past month, I have been reading critical race theory analyses in search of how they might threaten religion in some manner. Thus far, I haven’t encountered any mention of the Bible, the gospel, or religious criticism. There is frequent mention of white privilege, colorblindness, and systemic racism. However, nothing in the analyses I have read ask anyone to change their religion or modify their beliefs in God. The only change...

California Proposes New Oil Drilling Ban Near Neighborhoods

SACRAMENTO (AP) – California’s oil and gas regulator on Thursday proposed that the state ban new oil drilling within 3,200 feet of schools, homes and hospitals to protect public health in what would be the nation’s largest buffer zone between oil wells and communities. It’s the latest effort by Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom’s administration to wind down oil production in California, aligning him with environmental advocates pushing to curb the effects of climate change and against the powerful oi...

H.G. Wells and the Bicycles of Utopia

In 1904, H. G.

Hawks GM Danny Ferry had another race-related incident

NBA The comments Hawks general manager Danny Ferry made about Luol Deng might not be his first foray into racially insensitive remarks. Ferry said on a conference call with minority owners that Deng “has a little African in him” and promoted stereotypes about African heritage. There was a debate about whether those words were Ferry’s own, but, at the end of his day, they still came out of his mouth. (UPDATE: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has the audio.)  MORE: George’s ill-fated tweet | M...
