Listen To The Full Song From Hawkeye's Rogers: The Musical

If you've watched the first episode of "Hawkeye," Marvel's latest Disney+ offering, you've seen a bit of "Rogers: The Musical." Even if you've only checked out the trailer, you've seen a glimpse of it. In my former musical theatre world, it's been speculated on more than the plot of the show. I'm pretty sure it wasn't just my friends talking about it. If you're dying for more, we have great news for you — you can listen to the entire song. Sadly, there is no video of the whole thing on stage, bu...

How The Captain America Musical In The Hawkeye Series Came Together

Marvel's upcoming Disney+ series "Hawkeye" will allow us to spend a little more time with everyone's favorite bow and arrow specialist around the holidays. Unfortunately for Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), that means he won't be heading home for the holidays with his family as soon as he'd like. The superhero finds himself keeping an aspiring archer (and Hawkeye fangirl) named Kate Bishop out of harm's way when she inadvertently puts herself square in the sights of some dangerous people after comi...

Trump and Biden's anti-China foreign policy is fueling violence against Asian-Americans

Demonstrators at a vigil for the Atlanta shooting victims, in New York City, March 19, 2021. Michael Nagle/Xinhua via Getty The recent killing of six Asian-American women highlights the link between domestic and foreign policies. Many officials have condemned the attacks, but they need to acknowledge that over-the-top language about China fuels fear and anxiety that spurs violence against Asian-Americans. Jessica J.

CenterStrike Putters: Brian Wittman Strikes Back

You first heard of Brian Wittman here on, when he was launching a new putter innovation under the banner of MxV Golf. With its distinctive rolled face, the MxV1 putter brazenly challenged the conventional wisdom of the traditional flat-faced, lofted putter. So, what ever happened to Wittman and MxV? Well, it turns out that Wittman is still in the game, and ready to strike again with his new CenterStrike brand and its upcoming CenterG putter, which takes his original concept to the...

Abbott’s Statewide Orders Limit Options For Local Officials Trying To Curb Spread Of COVID-19

Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) held back on supporting a shelter-at-home order for a Texas county that has been dealt a staggering blow by the coronavirus and that’s scheduled to begin Wednesday. While Abbott acknowledged in an interview with CNN affiliate KRGV Tuesday night that some counties continue to experience “record breaking” numbers of positive tests and hospitalizations as well as “far too many deaths” — he said a mandated stay-at-home order was not enforceable. The new emerge...

Conservative Activists Accidentally Publish Audio Mocking Abbott For Using Wheelchair

The conservative advocacy group Empower Texans accidentally published audio of two of their members mocking Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R), who is paralyzed below the waist and uses a wheelchair. Ironically, this is the same group that weaponized a recording once before — in June of 2019, Empower Texans president Michael Quinn Sullivan clandestinely recorded the Texas House Speaker, and ultimately forced him to drop his reelection bid. This time, the recording of the comments was seemingly a...

Inattentive Oshkosh Migrants Will Find No EAA Roosts at Wittman in July 2020

SM Spangler It is a statistical reality that regardless of the methods of dissemination, roughly 10 percent of the population will not get the word. Or they will forget they got the word and reflexively follow their atavistic inclinations. Some creatures, like the swallows who migrate to San Juan Capistrano every spring from their winter residences in Argentina, don’t have a choice because conscious decision making is probably not among their sentient capabilities. Pilots don’t have this excuse...

Texas Gov. Admits Dangers of Reopening State on Private Call With Lawmakers

During a private call on Friday, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott admitted that “every scientific and medical report shows” state reopenings “ipso facto” lead to an increase in novel coronavirus cases, even as he publicly announced plans that same week to end an executive stay-at-home order in the state.“How do we know reopening businesses won’t result in faster spread of more cases of COVID-19?” Abbott asked during a Friday afternoon phone call with members of the state legislature and Congress. “Listen,...

The Nesting Instinct: A Cabin Retreat in Washington Inspired by a Bird

In a large-scale study released last week, scientists confirmed a 29 percent decline in the North American bird population—to the tune of 2.9 billion fewer birds—since 1970. I read the alarming news with great sadness and fear. But then I stumbled upon this project by Wittman Estes Architecture + Landscape that was inspired by a small bird—the nesting killdeer—and I felt a tinge of hope. Their clients, Pat and John Troth, are environmentalists and nature-lovers. John is a wildlife photographer, ...

Living on the Edge of AirVenture Oshkosh

This year EAA AirVenture celebrated a half-century at Wittman Regional Airport. Many contributed to it with their first trip to Oshkosh, and to accommodate them EAA expanded the South 40 to the airport’s southern fence line. Having made my first visit in 1978, I wanted to celebrate with a new perspective, a new view of the event. Curious about the southland, I decided to walk the public perimeter and meet those living on the edge of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. To qualify as edge livers, they had to ...

Texas Governor Quietly Stocks Courts With GOP Judges Who Lost In Midterms

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Gov. Greg Abbott has quietly been stocking Texas courts with Republican judges freshly rejected by voters, employing one of the strongest powers of his office to stem the erosion of the GOP’s decades-long dominance in the state. In the three months since the worst election night for Texas Republicans in a generation, four of Abbott’s last six judicial appointments to fill key court vacancies have been former Republican judges who lost their 2018 races. One was elevated to ...

'Mary Poppins Returns' Is Practically Passable, in Every Way

None There wasn't much about Robert Stevenson's 1964 musical, Mary Poppins, that should have worked. The story made a hash of P.L. Travers' original stories about the stern nanny with a knack for magic. It jammed in a suffragette subplot that was so mistreated it almost seemed to mock the entire cause. One song led to the next without much of a plot. Yet, like so many other cultural properties that Walt Disney cut and warped into a wholly unrecognizable shape, it all came together in a densely ...

Two Tales From Alberta

I win the bet!” – Calvin, Calvin & Hobbes To me, the suggestion that the topic of the Standard of Review is the great Canadian passion, at least for practitioners of administrative law, is firmly tongue in cheek. While I have acknowledged that the standard of review is at the heart of judicial review, there is so much more to administra...

US Navy To Field New Drones, Combat Lasers and ships with Railguns

The US Navy is making progress developing unmanned systems and directed energy weapons. Congress would like to see more effort operationalizing and fielding these technologies. The Navy has done a good job getting test versions of the laser weapon system and electromagnetic railgun out to sea ahead of full development: in the case of railgun, the Navy is still pursuing a pulsed power system to allow for continuous firings, and in the case of the laser weapon system the Navy is at 150 kilowatts o...

6 things you should never store on your work computer

If you're storing personal material on your work computer, you could be setting yourself up for some serious trouble.

"If necessary, ask what is permissible and use a portable flash drive to store any private items you need to access from a work computer." Kerr said that, while laws vary between jurisdicti...
