A Chinese virologist claimed the coronavirus was 'intentionally' released. Turns out, she works for a group led by Steve Bannon.

A laboratory technician works with samples being tested for coronavirus at "Fire Eye" laboratory in Wuhan, China. Getty A group of Chinese virologists released a strange new paper on Monday that claims the new coronavirus was engineered in a Chinese lab. One of the virologists, Li-Meng Yan, told Fox News host Tucker Carlson it's a "man-made virus" that the Chinese government released "intentionally."

These are the 29 power players steering TikTok's rise in the US

TikTok is facing a full-scale attack from the Trump administration, which has threatened to issue a nationwide ban on the app over accusations the platform allows the Chinese government to spy on Americans, and therefore poses US national-security risks. Although TikTok's popularity has allowed its ...

Security bugs let these car hackers remotely control a Mercedes-Benz

Few could ever forget back in 2015 when security researchers Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek remotely killed a Jeep’s engine on a highway with a Wired reporter at the wheel. Since then, the car hacking world has bustled with security researchers looking to find new bugs — and ways to exploit them — in a new wave of internet-connected cars that have only existed the past decade. This year’s Black Hat security conference — albeit virtual, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic — is no different. Secu...

The Job Search: Steak or Bacon?

I love cooking. When I was young I wanted to be a professional chef. Not because I knew what that mean, only because I loved creating things in the kitchen. My mom instilled a love of cooking in me. I wasn’t much a baking aficionado, I was interested in doing entrees and stuff like that. I have fond memories of watching Wok with Yan back in the 80’s, laughing at this super hilarious guy. We’d make a list of ingredients, shop for them, and then cook up some marvels. Those were the (simple) days!...

Large shift of the Pacific Walker Circulation across the Cenozoic

Yan and colleagues presented a modeled scenario for the Cenozoic evolution of the Pacific Walker Circulation (PWC; ~65 Ma to present). The results show the width of the PWC narrowed significantly throughout the Cenozoic era; accompanied until the Pliocene by a strengthening. A transition occurs in the PWC between the Late Miocene and Late Pliocene, manifested by an eastward shift and weakening, which is linked with the closure of the tropical seaways.

‘Birds of Prey’ Producer Sue Kroll on Me Too, Reshoots, and Sequel Possibilities [Interview]

Producer Sue Kroll has been with Birds of Prey from the very beginning. Since it was just an idea in star Margot Robbie‘s head while she was originating her breakout character Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. Since director Cathy Yan came to Kroll and fellow producer Bryan Unkeless with a vision of a wild, bombastic, and unabashedly fun girl gang movie. “There was something very raw about it, very visceral,” Kroll said of the sizzle reel that Yan showed to her and Unkeless. That visceral tone was...

‘Birds of Prey’ Director Cathy Yan on Crafting Old-School Action With the ‘John Wick’ Team [Interview]

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a movie bursting with personality. It’s poppy and gritty, slapstick-y and visceral, and most striking of all, it doesn’t confine itself to as many boxes or rules as most comic book movies do. It’s a rare comic book movie with an actual sense of freedom and spontaneity. Behind the boisterous vision is filmmaker Cathy Yan. Before Yan was writing and directing films, she was already sharpening her skills as a storyteller. A gr...

Birds of Prey Proves the Feminist Revolution in Franchise Films Is Going to Be an Uphill Battle

Harley Quinn is an unlikely character to try to transform into a feminist icon. The villain–and longtime girlfriend of a physically and emotionally abusive Joker–has been a troubling figure in the Batman animated TV series, comics and video games since she was introduced in 1992. Her suffering was frequently used as a punch line: in the popular 2009 video game Arkham Asylum, after the Dark Knight gets into an altercation with her, the Joker quips, “Slapping around Harley is my hobby.” Direc...

‘Birds of Prey’ Review: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun in This Stylish, Hilarious and Satisfying DC Superhero Movie

Birds of Prey just wants to have fun, and damn to hell anyone who won’t let it. A pulpy, kaleidoscopic funhouse ride that feels simultaneously high-stakes and low-stakes all at once, Birds of Prey is as cheeky, irreverent, and erratic as its central character, Harley Quinn — to both its benefit and its detriment. But mostly, it’s having too much of a blast to notice. Margot Robbie‘s breakout character from Suicide Squad finally gets a movie all to her own, and despite its title, Birds of Pre...

How Jackie Chan and ‘John Wick’ Inspired the Action Sequences in ‘Birds of Prey’

One of the prevailing issues with recent superhero movies are the clear division between the drama and the action sequences. The comic book movie industry has become a well-oiled machine, and as a result, you get CGI-packed action sequences designed by a VFX team while the indie auteur who was plucked out of obscurity to helm a major blockbuster gets to focus on the narrative and character scenes. But Birds of Prey director Cathy Yan didn’t want that to happen with her comic book film. “It was ...
