Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could be delaying having a baby for this reason

And we kind of get it.

Getty

Ever since Prince Harry showed off his parenting skills, jokily scolding a little boy for pulling his wife’s hair and then catching two-year-old Emily Henson stealing his popcorn at last year’s Invictus Games, fans have been waiting for the 33-year-old prince to become a father himself – and it seemed like it wasn’t far off.

Prince Harry and his new wife Meghan Markle explained in their engagement interview last year that they were taking ‘one step at a time’ on the family front, with Harry explaining, ‘Hopefully we’ll start a family in the near future’.

But how long in the near future? Well, people thought it could be right now with Prince Harry fuelling baby rumours that the Sussex family was about to grow, after he put his car up for sale.

Yes, the 33-year-old may have owned his Audi RS6 Avant for just over a year, but he has already put it up for sale, with rumours that he might be upgrading his sports car for a more family-friendly model.

But it looks like we can all calm down, as it has reported that we probably won’t be seeing any Meghan-Harry babies for a while, with the couple thought to be delaying having a baby.

Why? Well, it’s all to do with their impending tour.

According to a source, the newlyweds are waiting to expand their family until after the tour, hoping to avoid a difficult trip around Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and The Kingdom of Tonga.

A royal tour sounds like hard enough work anyway, but throw in morning sickness and a long list of dietary requirements and nutritional no-nos that come with pregnancy, and it’s virtually impossible.

Hopefully it won’t be too long to wait until we hear the pitter patter of tiny Sussex feet however, with royal correspondent Katie Nicholl reporting to Entertainment Tonight that it’s only a matter or time.

‘My sources are saying that Prince Harry, particularly, is very keen to start a family, pretty soon after the royal wedding,’ Nicholl explained. ‘He’s made no secret about wanting children.’

She continued: ’I think that moment [for Harry] really kicked in when his brother, Prince William, of course, settled down with Kate Middleton. That has definitely gotten Prince Harry pretty broody.’

‘The reason he wanted Meghan to meet Prince George and Princess Charlotte was so she could see that — this would be hopefully replicated by them, that they would go on to have children. That you marry into the royal family, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a regular family with cute children, and here are George and Charlotte to show that that can happen. That was really important to him.’

It looks like the Duke and Duchess are going to have a busy year.

Michael Cohen’s Tape Sounds Like He Could Bring Down Trump

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

The release of a secretly recorded conversation between Michael Cohen and Donald Trump about a proposed secret payment to one of Trump’s supposed mistresses goes a long way towards a potential criminal charge for both men.

The tape captures Cohen and Trump discussing setting up a shell corporation to pay “David” (presumably David Pecker, who owns the National Enquirer’s parent company, AMI) for the rights to Karen McDougal’s story that was acquired by AMI in a “capture and kill” move: AMI purchased exclusive rights to the damaging story of Trump’s affair and didn’t run it. 

Lanny Davis, one of Cohen’s lawyers, told CNN that he released the recording to show that Trump lawyer Rudolph Giuliani lied last week when he claimed that Cohen raised the idea of paying cash.  Davis claims that the recording clearly shows Trump proposing the idea of paying “cash,” while Giuliani continues to dispute this.

7 Fictional Schools We Wish We Could Attend

School is far from the most thrilling part of life. We’re told it will be some of the best years we could live, but usually, the most exciting thing to happen is if pizza makes it onto the lunch menu.

Yet somehow, the wonders of fiction can produce institutions that never contain a dull scene or go a chapter without an exciting twist or turn. Although thinking about school is probably the last thing many of us want to do, we’ve managed to single out seven scholarly sites that are bound to change your mind.

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry – Harry Potter


Hogwarts Castle at night
Hogwarts Castle.

Let’s not kid ourselves – Hogwarts was always going to be at the top of the list. Normal (see: Muggle) schools have dull subjects like chemistry, sports, history, and that optional foreign language. Hogwarts, on the other hand, teaches potions, flying broomsticks, charms classes, and maybe they do still have history but wizard history has trolls.

Good students spend their evenings relaxing in comfy dormitory rooms located throughout the magical castle. For the more adventurous students, there’s still plenty of danger to excite even the most hardened thrill-seeker. Screaming books for the after-hours reader, a giant squid in the lake, and staircases that can move around and stretch the memory. There are few schools — fictional or otherwise — that can match Hogwarts.

Starfleet Academy – Star Trek


Starfleet Academy
The main building at Starfleet Academy.

Located in Marin County, California and roughly 15 decades in the future, Starfleet Academy is the science-fiction answer to Hogwarts. Based near the Starfleet Headquarters, the Academy is where the best and brightest train to operate the vast, interstellar exploration ships of the Federation Fleet.

Like a lot of top-tier schools, Starfleet has gruelling admission regulations, including psychological tests and a six-week preparatory program. Those resilient few who manage to enter could go on to study everything from Advanced Subspace Geometry to Xenolinguistics in preparation to boldly go where no one has gone before.

Xavier’s School For Gifted Youngsters – X-Men


The X-Mansion during its incarnation as the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning.
The X-Mansion during its incarnation as the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning.

For a school dedicated to equal opportunity and understanding, Xavier’s School For Gifted Youngsters has strict entrance criteria: mutants only. Between crunching calculus and quoting Shakespeare for drama classes, students can earn extra credit saving the world from both threats to mutants and mutant threats. Select students who show the right aptitude can even join the greatest peace-keeping team in the extensive Marvel multiverse – the X-Men.

Here, mutants who are otherwise hated and feared across the globe can find a safe haven within the grounds. They’re taught not to react with violence towards the rest of humanity but build towards a mutually beneficial future.

UC Sunnydale – Buffy the Vampire Slayer


University of California Sunnydale.
University of California Sunnydale.

Built with no other goal than educating the students, UC Sunnydale is really just like any other university. That is, once you grow accustomed to the vampire students squatting in the abandoned dorm. Or the illegal government experiments in the basement. And maybe the occasional magically intoxicating drink. Otherwise, a perfectly normal establishment.

Due to the chaotic influence of the local Hellmouth, choosing to attend this institution may give you more of an education than you expected. That is, if you can survive long enough to collect your diploma.

St Trinian’s


St Trinian's.

St Trinian’s School for Young Ladies takes the traditional idea of a posh girls boarding school and blows it out of the water. Here, chaos is queen, the students are career criminals in the making, and the teachers are as disreputable as the infamous institution. Rivalries between factions run riot and it’s rare that a day goes by without at least one trap being set.

With hockey sticks for weapons and mischief on their minds, the outcasts and rebels who make this school their home hold no fear for what the world can throw at them. Really, it’s the rest of the world that should worry. There’s no telling what a Trinian survivor will (or won’t) do to any who are foolish enough to cross their paths.

William McKinley High – Glee


Glee's William McKinley High School main entrance.
William McKinley High School’s main entrance.

Everyone loves a good beat and William McKinley High is there to fill the spotlight. Primary entertainment of both staff and students is the ongoing rivalry of catchy tunes from the underdog glee club against frequently sarcastic cheer squad coach, Sue Sylvester.

William McKinley High also has an unusual knack for dealing with dense moral issues. Year after year, the school tackles subjects like sexual identity, physical and mental disabilities as well as cultural differences.

Maybe it’s not as fancy as some of the other entries but it has the right stuff to make a nice, normal school – if you can get behind the occasional choreographed Britney Spears assembly.

Jedi Academy – Star Wars


The Star Wars Jedi Temple on Coruscant.
The Jedi Temple on Coruscant.

For the lucky few who are born with a connection to the Force, the only place to go is the nearest Jedi Academy. Varying in size from a single class to an academy large enough to stand out on the city-planet of Coruscant, whichever Jedi Temple prospective students end up at will teach them mastery of their emotions and control of the Force.

Lucky students might even end up on one of the mobile academies. These vast space-faring vessels that double as both travelling Temples and explanatory ships. In between meditating on the cosmos, the migratory Jedi catalogue them for their vast Archives.

ENTERTAINMENT DEAL UPDATE:

Our Audience Offers 21 Ways the WNBA Could Up Game Attendance

A’ja Wilson, a WNBA player for the Las Vegas Aces, recently took to social media to complain about the pay gap between NBA players and those in the WNBA.

Wilson’s comments stirred a vigorous conversation on social media and the sports world about the wage discrepancy between male and female basketball players. Wilson made the comments after LeBron James signed a four-year, $ 154 million contract with the Lakers.

Even the most skilled WNBA players make just a fraction of what an NBA player who is benched for a majority of the season can earn. Reigning WNBA MVP Sylvia Fowles, for instance, earned $ 109,000 last year. In comparison, NBA 2017 MVP Russell Westbrook made a whopping $ 28.5 million. Meanwhile, Leandro Barbosa earned $ 500,000 in the 2017-18 NBA season despite being waived by the Phoenix Suns in July, reports Forbes. As a result, Barbosa will earn nearly five times Fowles’ earnings even though he is no longer playing for the Suns.

Many make the claim that the WNBA players are paid less because they do not draw the same attention and attendance as the NBA. While attendance has been improving over the years since the league’s inception in 1996, getting fans into seats still remains an issue. The Washington Post reported:

WNBA games averaged 7,716 fans per game in 2017, the highest number in six years but far from a significant improvement. WNBA games haven’t averaged 8,000 fans per game since 2009, and the 2017 figure was down 28.9% from the league’s all-time high attendance in 1998, which was the WNBA’s second season.

We solicited our audience to offer ideas to increase attendance at WNBA games. Here are some suggestions (these are posted verbatim from Instagram with some light editing for clarity):

– Team with NBA on promotions, social media, shout-outs, community events, and other involvements.

– Live streaming, community activations, and global initiatives.

– Unique and more involved half-time shows.

– Figure out a way to involve hip hop or the black culture. For example, give Beyonce and Jay-Z side seats.

– Play before the men’s (NBA) games.

– Lower the rims to 8.5 feet, so more players could play above the rim.

– Play satellite games in other cities where multiple games occur, lots of prizes and guest interaction.

– Open to foreign countries.

– Look at smaller venues.

– Sell tickets via Instagram.

– Have partnerships with Girl Scouts or Girls Inc. to spread the word.

– [Have] a fan night for aspiring WNBA players in each city where they play.

– Buil[d] a pipeline of young female athletes and provide free tickets to WNBA games.

– [Develop] integrated summer leagues/all-star games so they can develop a stronger fan base that will support them independently.

– Give the ladies real extra financial incentives to ball.

– They need to be featured on networks other than just ESPN.

– Engage older players who have retire[d] to remain involved outside of coaching.

– Half-time entertainment with local celebrity entertainers.

– Go to markets with no sports teams and let them sell the arenas out.

– [Create a] reality show following five of the most interesting/outrageous/intelligent/socially active, etc., players.

– Every WNBA team should have their own touring bus. During some off days and during the off season, drive this bus into neighborhoods in your respective city, where the players will get out and meet the fans, offer giveaways, and shoot arounds.

Nintendo’s Switch could outsell the PS4 in 2018

Nintendo Switch vs. PS4

Sony has had a stranglehold on the market ever since the PS4 launched in 2013. To date, the PS4 has reportedly outsold the Xbox One by greater than a two to one margin, and the distance between the two consoles grows larger each and every year. But one analyst believes that Sony might finally have some competition in 2018.

In a recent report, NPD Group analyst Mat Piscatella predicts that the Nintendo Switch will be the best-selling console of the holiday season, and could even overtake the PS4 for total sales on the year. Keep in mind that the Switch has only been on store shelves since early 2017, so millions of consumers had already chosen between the PS4 and Xbox One by the time Nintendo joined the current console generation.

Amazon could start selling cheap drugs at ‘right away,’ experts think

Amazon PillPack

Hot on the heels of #disrupting the grocery world by purchasing Whole Foods, Amazon is dipping its toes into the US healthcare market with a billion-dollar acquisition of online pharmacy PillPack. The deal is set to close in the second half of this year, and according to some experts, Amazon-backed changes could come to the online pharmacy literally overnight.

“Amazon could rename PillPack as ‘Amazon Pharmacy,’ and start right away,” Talha Sattar, CEO of internet pharmacy start-up Nimble, told CNBC. “The bigger question is about the form that the offering will take.”

Cyber Saturday—How Science Could Have Saved Reality Winner

Happy weekend, Cyber Saturday readers.

Reality Winner has pleaded guilty: “All of my actions I did willfully, meaning I did so of my own free will,” she told a court on Tuesday, per the New York Times‘ report.

The former Air Force linguist earned the distinction of being the first person prosecuted by the Trump administration on charges of leaking classified information under the Espionage Act. Her defense struck a deal with the Justice Department that would have her serve 63 months in prison and three years of supervised release. (A judge must now decide whether to approve the sentence.)

Federal authorities accused Winner last year of leaking a classified report concerning Moscow’s meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. They believed her to have sent the document to The Intercept, a news outlet funded by Ebay billionaire Pierre Omidyar, which published it online in full. For all its talk of protecting whistleblowers, The Intercept made a rookie mistake: uploading a scanned copy of the original report, which contained telltale, electronic traces all but confirming Winner as the culprit. The pages bore unmistakable watermarks–printer microdots–that identified their source.

Although the FBI did not mention the dots in its court filings, the agency did say it was able to determine the leaked document was a printout thanks to crease marks. The dots no doubt clinched the case. (Winner also apparently sent emails to The Intercept from her work computer–doh.)

Whatever your stance on Winner’s situation may be, her undoing at least provides a valuable lesson to would-be whistleblowers and media outlets: Heed the dots. Indeed, already there are workarounds. A new paper authored by four German researchers at the Technical University of Dresden describes a method for overcoming these watermarks. Having decoded a variety of dot arrangements, the team suggests adding additional dots in precise ways so as to thwart the tagging technique, rendering output anonymous.

You can test out the group’s obfuscation tools here.

***

If you read last weekend’s dispatch, you may recall we discussed whether Mandiant, the digital forensics division of FireEye, a cybersecurity firm, conducted a so-called hack back in order to pin a series of hacks on a group of Chinese spies, as a new book by David Sanger, national security reporter at the New York Times, seemed to allege. Mandiant released a statement this week saying that it did not and does not hack back, and that the suggestion it might have done otherwise is “a serious mischaracterization of our investigative efforts.” The firm said its actual methods allowed it to “diligently and legally” pursue attribution. No dots needed.

***

One last note: Next week Cyber Saturday will be taking a break from publication. Your host intends to extend his July 4th vacation through the weekend. I hope you enjoy the time off as much as I plan to.

THREATS

Say hi to Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi Alliance, a trade group that certifies wireless Internet standards, released details about its next generation networking protocol, WPA3. The new standard features stronger encryption, protection against certain types of attacks, and one-touch setup for connected devices, like smart speakers. Broad implementation isn’t expected to occur until late 2019.

Betting on the right horse…the wrong way. A former Equifax employee has been charged with insider trading. Sudhakar Reddy Bonthu, 44, a software engineering manager, took out options to short the credit bureau’s stock after creating the website that disclosed the company’s breach. A complaint filed against Bonthu said he had been told the website was for a customer, but that he figured out Equifax was the real subject.

Twitter buttons up. The micro-blogging service said it has begun taking more proactive measures to identify and shut down malicious and spam bot accounts before they can wreak havoc on its platform. Expect your follower count to go down as the company kicks offenders off the site. Additionally, Twitter has added compatibility with hardware security keys, tools that protect accounts against unauthorized logins.

Data leak roundup. Exactis, a marketing data aggregator based in Florida, leaked 340 million records on Americans and businesses, including people’s names, home addresses, email addresses, and other personal characteristics. Adidas disclosed that information for a few million online customers was exposed, although the full extent of the breach remains unclear. Ticketmaster said that 5% of its customers’ data were accessed by an unauthorized third party.

ACCESS GRANTED

Because that’s where the money is. The latest Bloomberg Businessweek bills itself as “the heist issue“–and it’s chock full of sordid tales, as advertised. (Side note: the issue has a very fun cover, which recalls one of Fortune’s very own.) One of the features, “The Biggest Digital Heist in History Isn’t Over Yet,” tells the tale of the Carbanak gang, a group of cybercriminal bank robbers that has looted financial firms to the tune of $ 1.2 billion since 2013. While the alleged ringleader has been apprehended, the thievery continues…

For years police and banking-industry sleuths doubted they’d ever catch the phantoms behind Carbanak. Then, in March, the Spanish National Police arrested Ukrainian citizen Denis Katana in the Mediterranean port city of Alicante. The authorities have held him since then on suspicion of being the brains of the operation. Katana’s lawyer, Jose Esteve Villaescusa, declined to comment, and his client’s alleged confederates couldn’t be reached for comment. While Katana hasn’t been charged with a crime, Spanish detectives say financial information, emails, and other data trails show he was the architect of a conspiracy that spanned three continents. And there are signs that the Carbanak gang is far from finished.

ONE MORE THING

Random key discovery. In 1882, a Californian banker by the name of Frank Miller, proposed a method of encipherment known today as a “one time pad.” This unbreakable cryptographic scheme was thought to have been first devised 35 years later by researchers at Bell Labs. As this IEEE Spectrum story relates, Steven Bellovin, a Columbia University computer science professor, discovered the true origins of this intellectual achievement after coming across a description of the mathematical invention in an old telegraphy codebook in 2011.

This Year’s Wimbledon Could Give Tennis Fans Another Roger Federer-Rafael Nadal Classic

At this point, coming up with novel ways to describe the Roger Federer-Rafael Nadal rivalry is like trying to eat just one Skittle out of the bag — it’s a futile exercise. We all know the contrasts that make their tennis duels so compelling. Federer’s the artiste, the effortless ballet dancer, grace on grass. Nadal’s the snarling street fighter, the mental grinder, the…don’t say it, please, okay, here it goes…the swashbuckler. (Dear Grand Slam tournament officials: is there any way to officially retire the Nadal-as-buccaneering-swordsman-cliche at a post-match ceremony?)

So give the producers of Strokes of Genius, a new documentary that explores the classic 2008 Federer-Nadal Wimbledon final — which Nadal won in five sets — credit for juxtaposing the two all-time greats in a way that didn’t feel tired. The film features a clip of Nadal, arms ripped, standing beside Federer, who was sporting a preppy sweater with gold-colored buttons.

“I remember seeing Nadal, in his sleeveless shirt, bulging biceps,” says BBC commentator David Law, host of The Tennis Podcast, in the documentary. Someone wolf-whistles at the chiseled Spanish star as he warms up before the match. “And then right next to him,” says Law, “you’ve got what looked like a prince.”

Strokes of Genius, which airs July 1 at 8 p.m. ET on Tennis Channel, serves as more than a mere nostalgia trip. Sure, reliving arguably the most riveting match in tennis history, which saw Nadal end Federer’s quest to win six straight Wimbledon titles in a four hour, 48 minute epic that included two rain delays and ended in near darkness, is delightful. But the documentary stands out for its timeliness. Who would have thought, a decade after that incredible July day — which saw Nadal squander a two sets-to-none advantage before prevailing in a fifth-set tiebreaker, finally giving him his first Wimbledon title — that both players would still be going strong? That they’d be 1-2 in the world (Nadal No. 1, Federer No. 2) in 2018, when Federer’s 36 years old, and Nadal’s 32? That they’d have won the last six Grand Slams running (Federer’s the 2017 Australian Open champ, the 2017 Wimbledon winner, and the 2018 Aussie champion; Nadal’s taken the last two French Opens, and won last year’s U.S. Open)? That the promise of another Nadal-Federer Wimbledon final, another unforgettable duel a decade later, is very, very real?

Both players participated in the documentary, which is based on the book by Sports Illustrated executive editor Jon Wertheim, who’s also an executive producer of the film (Meredith Corporation owns both TIME and Sports Illustrated). Fans learn more about Federer’s early proclivities for temper tantrums — it’s true, the unflappable Federer almost went all John McEnroe on everyone.

“I [sought] perfection maybe way too early in my life,” Federer says. Footage of a prepubescent Federer making faces and kicking balls and dropping rackets follows. “We sometimes felt very ashamed,” says his father, Robert, who’s spent the last 15 years beaming on millions of television sets around the globe as his son piled up his 20 major championships. “We really took him many times aside and said ‘Roger, I’m not going along with you anymore. I’m not playing the fool.’”

“I used to tell him, your bad behavior is like sending an invitation to your opponent,” says Federer’s mother, Lynette. “Here I am, beat me. I’m ready to beat today. So go ahead.”

Federer listened to his folks. Nadal’s family also supported his rise: his uncle Toni, who’s featured prominently in Strokes of Genius, coached him for years. Nadal makes a comforting admission in the film: When up against Federer, he led the fourth set tiebreaker 5-2, and had two serves to close out the match. But then his mind failed him. “I start to feel nervous,” Nadal says. He missed his first serve, and said he had a feeling he’d double fault. He did exactly that; Federer charged back to force a fifth set.

Superstar athletes rarely cop to mental frailty. Doing so offers comfort for the rest of us.

Nadal’s lapse makes his eventual win ever more impressive. He could have folded, instead, he fought back and won anyway. That victory was Nadal’s first Grand Slam win off of the Roland Garros clay. He’s gone on to win 17 slams, second only to Federer’s 20. Nadal became Federer’s foil: he owns a 23-15 head-to-head advantage against Federer, though Federer prevailed in their last Grand Slam final, when he beat Nadal in five sets at the 2017 Australian Open. Both players continue to push each other to unprecedented excellence.

“I had to embrace the idea of a rival,” Federer says in Strokes of Genius. “In the beginning I didn’t want to have one. And then eventually I realized, there’s something good to take out of these situations. So I maybe have to adjust my game a little bit. I don’t like to do that, per se. But why not? Let’s go.”

Strokes of Genius celebrates a sport’s golden age. All that remains for Nadal and Federer: writing their Wimbledon sequel.

Old Is Gold: What Game Developers Could Learn From Retro RPGs

With the crowdfunding-driven resurgence of retro-style computer RPGs (CRPGs) in recent years, it’s a fantastic time to be a classic CRPG buff. The legends of this medium have captivated players over the decades and shaped the history of an entire game genre.

But the old greats are not just there to be admired and emulated — they’re there to be surpassed. They, and their modern torchbearers, offer game developers much to chew on as we forge toward the next wave of gaming greatness.

Writing Can’t Be an Afterthought


The Myrkul encounter in Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer.

Ever tried editing a document that’s gone through a few runs of Google Translate? No matter how skilled the editor might be, something’s already been lost in translation. That’s how it is with game writers. All too often they’re called in only after the rest of the game has already been nailed down and told to write sense into it all.

In the spring of 2006, something different went down at Obsidian Entertainment. Work on Neverwinter Nights 2’s first expansion had kicked off, and thanks to time and budget constraints, it was to be a simple hack-and-slash adventure. And that’s what fans would have gotten if writer George Ziets hadn’t pushed for bigger and better.

It took some trust and convincing, as Ziets tells it, but Obsidian approved his far grander vision of individuals challenging the gods and the very order of the universe, accented by deep-dives into faith, love, and mortality. Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer far outgrew its original, humble concept to win runner-up on GameBanshee’s 2007 RPG of the Year feature. It remains one of the finest CRPG experiences of the 2000s.

Ziets’s story is a standout case for giving game writers a seat at the development table from the get-go and a free hand to shape a game’s journey. Even if the game isn’t a story-centric one, game developers still shouldn’t de-prioritize the writing. Just look at how titles that led with gameplay and visuals, like Destiny and Mass Effect: Andromeda. They sank into mediocrity on the weakness of their writing. Writers of old CRPGs didn’t just lay mortar between the bricks, they helped plan the wall.

Mind the Barrier to Entry


The final boss encounter from Icewind Dale: Heart of Winter.

CRPGs used to be hardcore, designed for savvy players who knew their spellbooks and bestiaries — and relished a challenge (like in the Icewind Dale games). With their hack-and-slash focus, esoteric Dungeons & Dragons-derived rulesets, and high difficulty curve, Icewind Dale and its sequels were prime examples of older CRPGs’ unforgiving nature. But while challenges can be fun, we can’t all afford the time and energy they demand.

Obsidian understood this when they added a minimal-difficulty option to Pillars of Eternity. According to game director Josh Sawyer, this “dad mode,” as it was nicknamed, was aimed at longtime fans who no longer had as much gaming time. But it’s not just dads — or mums — who benefit from such accommodation.

Gamers have wildly different skill levels and reasons for picking up a game. Some don’t mind, and even enjoy, studying arcane rulesets and retrying tough battles. Others just want — or need — a quicker, less stressful experience. Game devs shouldn’t exclude this chunk of every player base.

It’s about options. No one’s saying devs should “dumb down” a game to make it easy for all. But that sweet spot between substance and accessibility can be pretty elusive. As Pillars demonstrated, the best way to hit that bullseye is for devs to make a game’s barrier to entry more flexible.

Keep What Worked and Make it Better


The battle with the famous Scorpitron in Wasteland 2.

In the real world, nasty behavior has repercussions. Not so in CRPGs, where for a long time, you could sass everyone you met and carry on like a boss — until Pillars of Eternity came along. As the game kept track of your conduct and had characters react to it accordingly, suddenly watching your mouth was the smart thing to do.

Things like this do a lot to enhance CRPG worlds — and they’re not all modern inventions. 1988’s Wasteland went down in gaming history for its multiple-solution approach to obstacles and a story big on choice and consequence. As the director of its 2014 sequel tells it, preserving these elements was a top priority in Wasteland 2’s development. That, along with jazzing up of other elements such as combat, enabled inXile Entertainment to deliver a Game of the Year winner that is lauded as a leading success of the retro RPG renaissance.

This is how we make progress, by carrying forward what worked and building on it. Even retro-style games that sell on nostalgia need some innovation to make them relevant. And that doesn’t just mean innovating on the visual front — that’s a black hole where gamer appetites are concerned. Innovations must carry over to the things that shaped the old greats like gameplay, design, characterization, and more. Game devs need to study and surpass these elements to forge new greats.

It’s only practical to appreciate the great games of past generations. They were great for many reasons. Each title presents a learning opportunity for devs who know what to look for. After all, old may be gold, but even gold needs polishing every once in a while!

What Trump Could Learn From Freud’s Daughter About Parentless Kids

Seventy-five years ago in the midst of World War II, Anna Freud, the daughter of Sigmund Freud, and her close friend, Dorothy Burlingham, published their classic study, War and Children, documenting the impact that separating children from their parents had during a time when England was under attack from Nazi Germany.

Freud and Burlingham knew their subject firsthand. They had been directing the Hampstead War Nurseries, which provided children, many of whom had lost their homes to German bombs, with residential care and comparative safety.

Today, thanks to the Trump administration’s policy of criminally prosecuting asylum-seeking adult immigrants who do not cross into the United States legally and separating them from their children, Freud and Burlingham’s study of children in crisis has become relevant in ways its authors never could have imagined in 1943.

What the DC Cinematic Universe Could Learn from the Arrowverse

The Arrowverse as done the Justice League better than the DCEU Justice League film was able to. DC’s mad rush to compete with the Marvel cinematic money-printing machine has left its major film properties unoriginal and poorly fleshed out. Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman have been realized on screen together, but the story that has brought them together is thin at best.

DC’s small screen efforts have fared much better over the past 10 years. Namely, they were given 10 years to work on exploring and gradually expanding the world. The Arrowverse, headed by Greg Berlanti, has gone above and beyond what the DCEU has been allowed to. Establishing their own television version of the Justice League, exploring and highlighting heroes and villains unknown to many, and crafting exciting stories that move beyond established canon.

Of course, the DC TV properties don’t always nail it. The television medium and some creative restrictions like not using certain heroes or villains have forced the DC shows to get creative and explore things the movies couldn’t, or wouldn’t. These are also the things that could help the DCEU thrive.

Utilize Uncommon DC Heroes


Not a pair of bat ears or a golden whip in sight.

For a time, the holy trinity of DC consisting of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman could not be used in television products. However, the limitations DC put on its television series were less a barrier and more a creative puzzle to solve. How do these shows garner interest if we can’t show the core of the Justice League? The answer was to dig deep.

Characters like Damien Darhk, Vixen, Prometheus, Constantine, and the entirety of the Legend of Tomorrow help bring the Justice League to life. The eclectic mix of personalities, back stories, and powers help them stand out in a crowded superhero playing field. After a time, you grow to love these new characters, and soon they become part of the common superhero lexicon. How many people actually knew who Mr. Terrific was before he was introduced on Arrow? Now, fans of the show are acutely familiar with that niche, face-painted hero.

Time and Room to Breathe


Oh, the greasepaint. Domino masks all the way.

The sheer volume of heroes and villains introduced on TV between every DC show in the past six years is staggering. Television affords DC the ability to let relationships develop, sour, or blossom. For better or worse. The DCEU has rushed itself into the Justice League and the New Gods, yet it hasn’t allowed time to explore either group. So, we are left with paper-thin characters like Steppenwolf who show up, growl, and then get defeated. Steppenwolf is certainly niche, but without any context, build, or real resolution, he is simply another CGI punching bag.

It took many years for the Arrowverse to build their own version of the Justice League. When the crossover events eventually happened and we finally saw the on-screen team-ups we had been waiting for, they felt earned. The DCEU version, on the other hand, consisted of our favorite (and not so favorite) characters thrust together in a way that simply felt forced. The cinematic outing wasn’t given the proper time to mature and bake as the Arrowverse has been.

Introduce Fan Favorites


Martian Manhunter: the Martian man who hunts men.

The DCEU’s main objective was to put Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman on screen together for the first time ever. Fans were then gifted with the big screen versions of Cyborg, Flash, and Aquaman as well. All of these characters were certainly welcome, and core to the JLA, but nothing new.

All of these characters have been on the small screen in one version or another. Smallville, the original DC TV property to introduce the modern Justice League, had all but Batman pop up. The Arrowverse has taken steps to flesh out the greater universe and their efforts have led to some truly unique on-screen characters. Gorilla Grodd, Killer Frost, and The Atom all made their home on television, becoming permanent fixtures and household names in the process.

The Martian Manhunter also received a nice introduction to the Supergirl universe and a wonderful on-screen representation. These sort of characters show the magnitude of DC’s catalog.

Infuse Fun


A selfie in front of the alternate earth version of your job? Sure, that’s fun.

What fans and critics have voiced repeatedly is the lack of fun DC infuses into their recent cinematic outings. Suicide Squad aside, the main DCEU panel of films present a very bleak, heavy take on the comic book properties. After some reshoots, the infusion of levity in Justice League feels out of place and sticks out like a sore thumb. It is certainly a welcome addition but it feels like it was added in post.

Shows like Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl lean more towards the fun side of on-screen, comic book properties. These shows help balance out Arrow’s grit and Black Lightning’s socially charged content. When the crossovers happen, the injection of jokes and levity from characters like Cisco don’t feel out of place. They add a fun element to the crazy proceedings.

Emotional Resonance


Even superheroes get harassed.

After watching several DCEU films, there has been no lasting feelings or any attachment to a particular character. Superman killing Zod or Cyborg lamenting his father were there to elicit an emotion but they all came off as empty calories. It’s hard to feel sorry for gods.

Black Lightning burst on the scene earlier this year and made an immediate impact. Its ripped-from-the-headlines storytelling and grounded protagonists helped make a real emotional connection to the characters and that world. Flash, Arrow, and Legends alternate building and testing relationships and exploring consequences of characters decisions.

Finding the Balance


The Big Six, minus one.

It is easy to criticize the DC films, but the film medium dictates what can be done. The key is finding a balance between exploring new ideas and allowing time for the world to build. Films are expensive gambles and one wrong move can spell disaster.

While the Justice League film tried to introduce the New Gods with Batman’s out-of-place Apokolips dream and Steppenwolf, since neither was given time to grow, the setting and character was short-changed. What could’ve been a great opportunity, it was instead shuffled off without decent explanation as to their importance in the DC Universe.

The Arrowverse has taken the time to find a good balance in their universe. Over the years, the shows have explored multiple dimensions, fan favorite locations like Nanda Parbat, and evil hero counterparts. All of these characters and places were given the time to be established and worked in service of the characters. Each show established its own canon and as each series crossed over, they brought their established history with it. TV for the win once more.

Elder Scrolls 6 Location Guide – Where Could Bethesda’s Next Game be Set?

If there’s one game that’s probably on most gamers’ wishlist, it’s Elder Scrolls 6. Bethesda is keeping incredibly tight-lipped on the topic however, especially regarding the game’s existence and where the Elder Scrolls 6 location would be.

Whether it’s Valenwood or Argonia, there’s been plenty of speculation as to what the Elder Scrolls 6 setting will be.

Here we take a look at the possibilities and top fan favourites for the Elder Scrolls 6 locations.

A brief history of Elder Scrolls

Of course, the location for the game is more than just a setting, it also gives us an idea of what the game’s called.

For example, Elder Scrolls 2: Daggerfall was set across the High Rock and Hammerfell provinces, while Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind took you to the island of Vvardenfell.

Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion was set in Cyrodil and finally Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim took us to… well, Skyrim.

All these locations were featured in the original game, Elder Scrolls Arena. It’s the only Elder Scrolls game to date to allow you to explore the full empire of Tamriel, but sadly because it was 1994 it was very basic and repetitive.

The original map from Elder Scrolls Arena looks something like this:


Elder Scrolls Arena map
From left to right: Summerset Isle, High Rock, Hammerfell, Valenwood, Skyrim, Imperial Province, Elsweyr, Black Marsh and Morrowind

In fact, this awesome map from a Reddit user sums up where the events of all the Elder Scrolls events have taken place so far:


Tamriel Elder Scrolls game map

All the events of every Elder Scrolls game since have taken place within Tamriel, so it’s safe to believe that it’ll be the same for Elder Scrolls 6.

With that in mind, here are all the potential Elder Scrolls 6 locations currently up for games within Tamriel.

Elder Scrolls 6: Valenwood


Elder Scrolls, Valenwood
The Valenwood province of Tamriel

Location: Valenwood is a south-western province of Tamriel, west of Elsweyr, south-west of Cyrodiil and east of the Abecean Sea.

Home to the Wood Elves or Bosmer, this is a largely uninhabited forest wilderness. The coastlines are dominated by mangrove swamps and rain forests.

Likelihood: Strong

Valenwood is one of the spots in Tamriel that Bethesda hasn’t yet explored in the Elder Scrolls series beyond Arena.

However, there’s also a purportedly leaked memo from within Bethesda back in 2014 that supports a Valenwood location.

The memo allegedly prohibited Bethesda employees from “using or referencing” a number of terms. These included Fallout: Nuka World, which ended up being part of a Fallout 4 DLC release, Elder Scrolls 6 or something known as Project Greenheart.

Many believe that Project Greenheart is the codename for Elder Scrolls 6 because Greenheart is a city found in the Valenwood region.

Coincidence? Probably not.

Elder Scrolls 6: Elsweyr


The Elsyweyr province of Tamriel

Location: Elsweyr is a region of Tamriel bordered by Valenwood on the west, Cyrodiil to the north and east and Argonia to the east.

The province is separated into two nations: Anequina to the north and Pelletine to the South. Anequina is a desert-like badlands similar to Hammerfell. Pelletine, on the other hand, is a mixture of dense jungles and woodlands like Valenwood.

It’s the home of the feline race of Elder Scrolls, the Khajiit.

Likelihood: Possible.

Bethesda has regularly said that the setting of Elder Scrolls games tends to be based on which province has the most lore.

There’s plenty of information about Elsweyr in the previous games, so could be a great base to build Elder Scrolls 6. 

Elder Scrolls 6: Hammerfell


Hammerfell, Elder Scrolls
The Hammerfell province of Tamriel

Location: Hammerfell is a vast province to the west of Tamriel. The region is bordered by High Rock to the north, Skyrim to the north-east and Cyrodiil to the east and south-east.

It’s a massive region that’s covered by mountain ranges, grasslands and even deserts – just for that real mix of terrains.

The Redguards call Hammerfell their home, who are a race of men known for their cunning and skilled swordsmanship.

Likelihood: Strong.

The only issue with Hammerfell being a potential location for Elder Scrolls 6 is that it was partially featured in Elder Scrolls 2: Daggerfall. 

However, at E3 2018, Bethesda released the first teaser trailer for the game, revealing few details beyond a sweeping view of a mountainous region. This could indicate that Hammerfell will be the location for the upcoming sequel.

Hammerfell is an absolutely massive region so there’s plenty more that Elder Scrolls 6 could explore.

Elder Scrolls 6: Argonia


Elder Scrolls Argonia, or Black Marsh
The Black Marsh or Argonia region of Tamriel

Location: The Black Marsh, known also as Argonia, is a region in the south-east of Tamriel. It’s bordered by Morrowind to the north, Cyrodiil to the west and protected by both the Topal Sea and the Padomaic Ocean.

It’s here that the reptilian Argonians call home, some of which you will encounter in other Elder Scrolls games.

The province is filled with great rivers and impenetrable swamps. It seems to be ruled by the King of Argonia and an Argonian Royal court.

Likelihood: Strong

Online rumours have speculated that Argonia or the Black Marsh will be the setting for Elder Scrolls 6 for years.

Although there don’t seem to be any verified leaks as yet, it is one location that the Elder Scrolls series hasn’t yet explored.

Plus, there’s plenty of knowledge of the Argonian race in previous games to support the next game exploring their homeland region.

Elder Scrolls 6: Akavir


Akavir Elder Scrolls
There are currently only fan-made maps of Akavir, but it could look something like this

Location: Akavir or the “Dragon Land” is one of the only areas in this list that’s outside of Tamriel.

It’s actually a totally different continent that lies to the east of Tamriel and is the homeland of the Akaviri.

These people are made up of unrelated races, the Snow Demons of Jamal, the serpent men of Tsaesci, the Monkey People of Tang Mo and the Tiger Dragons of Ka’Po’Tun.

Little is known about the continent but it is referenced multiple times throughout the series.

Likelihood: Possible.

If Bethesda thinks the Elder Scrolls series is just retreading old ground in Tamriel, moving to the nearby yet historically connected continent of Akavir definitely has potential.

Elder Scrolls 6: Atmora


Atmora Elder Scrolls
Again, there are no real images for Atmora from the game, so this is a fan-created outline of the continent

Location: Atmora, also known as Elder Wood, is a frozen continent way to the north of Tamriel, across the Sea of Ghosts.

It’s described in the Elder Scrolls series as a place of permanent winter, with little life and no sign of habitation.

Likelihood: Very unlikely.

Nothing lives in this land of ice, so what reason would Bethesda have to set Elder Scrolls 6 there?

Elder Scrolls 6: Alinor


Elder Scrolls Summerset Isles

Location: The Summerset Isles, also known as Alinor, is an archipelago consisting of three major islands: Summerset, Auridon and Artaeum.

The archipelago is located to the south-west of Tamriel and west of Valenwood in the Abecean Sea.

It’s home to the Altmer or High Elves/Western Elves. They’re one of the ten default playable races in Elder Scrolls games and are primarily known for their enhanced magic abilities.

Likelihood: Possible.

The High Elves are one of the most popular races in Elder Scrolls, and any player would love to see a game set in their homeland.

There’s plenty of history when it comes to the Summerset Isles too, which could give a major AAA release plenty of source material.

Plus, there’s a couple in Fallout 4 called the Summersets. Is that a little hint from Bethesda?

Justify Could Win the Triple Crown at the Belmont Stakes, But It’s a Long Shot. Here’s Why

The stakes are perhaps the highest for one chestnut colt at the Belmont Stakes this year.

As many thoroughbreds before him, Justify will attempt to join an elite — and extraordinarily small — class of horses to win the Triple Crown at the 2018 Belmont Stakes on Saturday. The thoroughbred will face his toughest challenge yet at the mile-and-a-half race, where he will attempt to make good on his 2018 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes wins.

Justify could be the second Triple Crown winner for trainer Bob Baffert, who trained American Pharoah back in 2015 when he ended a 37-year Triple Crown drought. But winning the Belmont Stakes isn’t so simple — and the New Jersey track presents the most challenging race of the three, said Nick Zito, an experienced trainer with Derby, Preakness and Belmont wins under his belt.

“It’s called the Triple Crown for a reason,” Zito said. “It’s one of the most difficult things to do in sports.” After all, only 12 horses have won it in close to 150 years of these races. And if Justify fails to clinch the win this weekend, he’ll become the 24th thoroughbred to win the Derby and the Preakness — but not the Triple Crown.

Indeed, the longest race of the three American Classics bookends the series and reflects just how hard it is to win the the coveted title. These thoroughbreds complete the series — or compete in one or two races — over the span of just more than a month, with races in varying distances in different states. Justify’s first win of the series came at the one-and-a-quarter-mile Kentucky Derby track on May 5, and his second victory came two weeks later in Baltimore at the one-and-three-sixteenths-mile Preakness Stakes track.

However, Zito warned, “Belmont is the most grueling of the Triple Crown races. It’s the toughest for sure.” Zito knows that first hand. Despite two wins in 2004 and 2008 at Belmont Park, Zito’s horses have come in second there seven different times. And in addition to Justify’s already slim odds of snagging the Triple Crown title, he also got a bruised knee at the Kentucky Derby and raced back-to-back on wet tracks.

The additional length at Belmont often tires out these horses, Zito said. Even the sand on the track at Belmont feels tougher — it’s deeper, softer and can be tough to trudge through. And Triple Crown-vying horses often have to compete with thoroughbreds who didn’t appear in Kentucky or Baltimore, now stepping into the arena with fresher and more energetic legs.

On top of all of these conditions, for horses to even have a shot at the Triple Crown, they must have an excellent pedigree, Zito said. That means these winning race horses likely come from lineages that exhibited both speed and stamina, as well as intelligence and good judgement. Secretariat, the legendary thoroughbred who won the 1973 Triple Crown, is the pinnacle of these sets of qualities, Zito said. While Justify has a strong pedigree of his own, “you can’t say he’s Secretariat-safe,” Zito said.

There are also a range of ways a race could go all wrong and destroy a shut at the title. A horse can simply have a slow day, or he could have a poor start when the starting gates break away.

But if the stars align correctly, perhaps Justify can join the high ranks of the Triple Crown winners before him. Indeed, Zito doesn’t just want Justify to win. He’s hoping to see Justify win Belmont by “many” lengths — perhaps inspiring memories of Secretariat’s historic 1973 finish.

“You need stars in racing like everything else,” Zito said. “We’re always looking for stars. And that’s what (Justify) looks like.”

What the G7 and G20 Summits Could Mean for Feminist Foreign Policy Worldwide

This week, world leaders will meet in the Charlevoix region of Quebec, Canada for the annual G7 Leaders’ Summit. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been gathering headlines for his leadership of the G7; a self-described feminist, Trudeau has placed gender equality at the center of the G7 agenda and invited more leaders from the Global South than in recent years. Similarly, Argentina’s President Mauricio Macri, leading this year’s G20, has committed to a “cross-cutting gender approach.”

Decisions made at the G7 and G20 can change the course of international policy and cooperation. With all eyes on the global stage, civil society has been calling on Trudeau and Macri to fully embrace ideals of equality and inclusion. Feminist advocates have been at the forefront of these efforts, urging governments to fully integrate gender into their outcomes and to invest accordingly.

But what are the G7 and G20, and why should we care?

In 2015, thousands snaked through midtown Manhattan in a collective show of solidarity for the global women’s movement with UN Women. (J Carrier for UN Women / Creative Commons)

The G7 includes seven of the world’s leading economies; the G20 is composed of the same G7 countries plus the European Union and twelve emerging economies. These forums, given their economic power, wield immense global influence—directing national and multilateral policies towards political and socioeconomic issues.

Every year, a different government takes over each summit’s Presidency and is responsible for determining the agenda. In the G20 context, the previous, current and subsequent presidencies work together as a “troika” to maintain consistency from year to year. The G7 and G20 are primarily led by officials referred to as Sherpas, who represent the heads of state and government. They meet a few times each year to negotiate their governments’ shared interests.

The G7 and G20 are not exactly inclusive processes, nor are they very transparent—civil society and other key stakeholders are not given a preview of the discussion outcomes and strategies or asked for their input before they are made public. However, there are multiple pathways for official stakeholder engagement.

Both summits have seven official engagement groups, including forums for business associations (B7/B20), civil society (C7/C20), labor unions (L7/L20), the scientific community (S7/S20), think tanks (T7/T20), women’s organizations (W7/W20) and youth leaders (Y7/Y20). These groups organize ahead of the Leaders’ Summit to submit recommendations to G7 and G20 leadership, aiming to influence their political and financial commitments. Civil society organizations also collaborate separately through national and global advocacy networks such as the G7 Global Task Force, a coalition that develops its own policy recommendations and organizes advocacy efforts both in G7 countries and at global convenings.

In addition to Sherpa meetings, the Presidency hosts both working group meetings and ministerial meetings. Working group meetings focus on specific topics like development, health or climate change. The Accountability Working Group publishes a report every three years on the G7’s progress in meeting its commitments. Ministerial meetings, which convene government officials like foreign or finance ministers, often release their own outcomes. The G20 process is heavily influenced by finance ministers and central bank governors, as the summit tends to focus more narrowly on global economic cooperation—as opposed to the G7, which addresses broader economic and political issues. The Sherpa team, working group members and ministers are most closely associated with decision-making at the G7 and G20—making them essential contacts for civil society advocates. 

The International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) has been actively participating in both civil society advocacy and official engagement groups around the G7 and G20. Through our involvement, we’ve seen that Canadian leadership has demonstrated an unprecedented level of interest in advancing gender equality compared to previous presidencies.

Last year’s Italian G7 Presidency organized the first gender ministerial meeting—but it was held after the Leaders’ Summit, and therefore had minimal impact and little visibility. Italy also released the first G7 Roadmap for a Gender-Responsive Economic Environment, outlining policies to advance women’s economic empowerment.

Canada has aimed to take things further, and with a broader gender agenda. Prime Minister Trudeau established the first Gender Equality Advisory Council to oversee the integration of gender throughout all G7 activities. The Council recently released its own recommendations for the G7, which elevate and endorse those issued by the W7. Both sets of recommendations call on G7 leaders to adopt a feminist approach that integrates intersectionality, acknowledges diversity and gives adequate funding to women’s rights organizations and movements. 

ICRW and allies are calling on G7 and G20 countries to make advanced commitments to gender equality and women’s rights with meaningful and sustained investments. There’s a real opportunity for G7 and G20 countries to drive the feminist agenda forward this year—but first, they must unify. Consensus is a central focus of these summits, and even if Canada or Argentina want to make bold strides, other member-states may drag their feet.

That’s where advocacy comes into play, particularly given the fact we are living in an era of growing political divisions. Feminist advocates are needed now more than ever, with the pendulum of gender equality poised to swing forward. The time is now for feminist civil society to pressure world leaders to take bolder actions, to be more inclusive in their approach and to hold themselves accountable and follow through on their commitments.

Spogmay Ahmed is a Global Policy Associate at the International Center for Research on Women.

Google could face yet another multi-billion-dollar fine in Europe, this one for Android

Android Antitrust Fine

About a year ago, Google received a massive antitrust fine in Europe for abusing its search dominance. The EU decided Google should pay €2.42 billion for its transgressions or about $ 2.7 billion. That was more than double what Intel got a few years before that.

To celebrate the one-year anniversary of that fine, the EU is about to deliver a new multi-billion dollar blow to Google, and this time around it might be a more significant one, because it’s about Android.

The New Characters in ’13 Reasons Why’ Season 2 and the Impact They Could Make

Here’s the lowdown on the new characters you can expect to see in the new season of 13 Reasons Why, and how they could affect the show as it looks back at Hannah’s story.

Chloe

Chloe enters the show associated with rapist Bryce Walker. The latest trailer suggests she could be his girlfriend. She’s head cheerleader and tries to befriend Jessica, one of Bryce’s victims in Season 1, recruiting her into the cheerleading squad.

Actress Anne Winters, who plays Chloe, told Pop Sugar that her character will cause “a bit of drama” and that she fits a “mean girl” stereotype.

She also said: “It’s funny because I always forget that all the episodes that we filmed are going to come out at the same time. So, in my head I’ve been thinking throughout the season people might have a different opinion of me, but if people binge-watch it then I feel like people will see the entirety of my character throughout the whole season in a day or two.”

This suggests that our attitude to Chloe will change as the season progresses. Could something happen to make us change our minds about her?

Nina


Samantha Logan-13 Reasons Why
Samantha Logan, seen here in Teen Wolf, joins the cast as track star Nina Jones.

New addition Nina is played by Samantha Logan who previously appeared in Teen Wolf. She’s on the school athletics team but there’s more to her than meets the eye. Will she reveal her secret and could it affect proceedings? A track star, she could well cross paths with cheerleaders Chloe and Jess.

Cyrus


13-Reasons-Why-Cyrus
Bryce Cass as Cyrus in 13 Reasons Why.

Cyrus is a punk-loving outsider at Liberty High who befriends fellow outcast, amateur photographer Tyler Down. Played by Bryce Cass, Cyrus is out to make mischief at the same time as acting as an advocate for the downtrodden. Will Cyrus help or hinder a new Tyler who seems to have developed a penchant for guns, as seen at the end of Season 1?

Mackenzie


13-Reasons-Why-Mackenzie
Chelsea Alden plays Mackenzie, sister to fellow newcomer Cyrus, in the new season.

Cyrus’s sister, Mackenzie is a young woman who plays by her own rules. Confident and forthright, she’s sharp and funny. She’s played by Chelsea Alden who you might know from American Horror Story: Roanoke. Her story will most likely tie in with her brother Cyrus and his new pal Tyler.

Barry and Nora Walker


13 Reasons-Walkers
Jake Weber and Brenda Strong play Bryce’s parents.

Season 2 introduces us to Bryce’s parents. There’s something off about this pair – who could give us an insight into why Bryce is the way he is. Barry, played by Jake Weber, earns a lot of money as a hedge fund manager, but his ethics seem questionable. Nora, meanwhile, played by Brenda Strong, is a woman who seems — on the surface anyway – pretty ruthless and intent on keeping up appearances. But how might she feel if she learns the truth about her rapist son? If Bryce ends up facing the consequences of his actions, plenty should be revealed about these two characters.

Justin Prentice, who plays Bryce, told Refinery 29: “I think [entitlement] is a part of who Bryce is, who Bryce’s father is and the background that he comes from. When you’re a part of a power family, in their eyes anyway, you’ve gotta do what you need to do to reach the top and stay on top.”

Caleb


RJ Brown
RJ Brown plays Caleb.

Played by RJ Brown, Caleb is Tony’s boxing trainer, and is a fiercely competitive but also gentle and understanding. He helps Tony process his anger issues. Could the two become confidantes, or closer?

Sonya


Allison Miller
Terra Nova's Allison Miller plays lawyer Sonya.

Joining Wilson Cruz’s Dennis in the courtroom is Allison Miller’s Sonya. She’s an ambitious lawyer who is wily and clever – and could bring Bryce to justice.

Rick


Ben-on-Designated-Survivor-ABC-620x375
Designated Survivor's Ben Lawson plays sports coach Rick.

Played by Ben Lawson, Rick is the school baseball coach. He’s a sports teacher dedicated to supporting and protecting his rising baseball stars. The Australian actor, who had a long-running role in Aussie soap Neighbours, has appeared in a number of high-profile TV series including Billions, Grimm, Modern Family and Designated Survivor.

Carolyn


Meredith Monroe
Alex's mum makes an appearance this season.

Following what happens to Alex at the end of Season 1, it was perhaps inevitable we’d meet his mother in Season 2. She’s played by Dawson’s Creek actress Meredith Monroe. She’ll presumably help in his rehabilitation — as well as his mum, she’s also a nurse.

Jackie


13-Reasons-Why
Jackie provides support for Hannah's mum.

An advocate for victims of bullying, Jackie, played by Kelli O’Hara, becomes involved in the Bakers’ legal case against the school, lending her support and counsel to Hannah’s mother.

13 Reasons Why Season 2 hits Netflix on May 18.

How A $2 Act of Defiance Could Bring Waffle House To Its Knees

A nationwide boycott of Waffle House set for Friday has now been issued by the Atlanta branch of Black Lives Matter. As part of the boycott, protesters are being asked to stage a $ 2 sit-in at Waffle House restaurant locations around the country, according to AL.com. Protesters will spend $ 2 on a soda and will consume the beverage at tables and counters in the Waffle House restaurants during peak business hours.

More than a week after 23-year old Chikesia Clemons was violently arrested at one of its locations in Alabama, Waffle House officials are still siding with their own employees saying they called the cops out of “concern for their own safety.” On Monday, company officials invited into its headquarters civil rights advocates including a representative from the NAACP and Black Lives Matter, to view an unedited version of a security tape they purport shows Clemons being belligerent.

Lamar Howard, Clemons’ stepfather told ABC News that Waffle House staff had called police after she refused to pay $ 0.50 cents for plastic spoons and had requested a corporate phone number to lodge a complaint. “She’s owed an apology, just like the two men in the Starbucks,” Howard said.

Early in April, Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson, both 23-year old entrepreneurs, walked into a Philadelphia Starbucks where they sat, waiting for a business meeting. Nelson immediately asked to use the restroom and the manager insisted something must be purchased to get access to utilize the bathroom. According to 911 accounts, Starbucks staffers had called the police approximately two minutes after the men arrived. In an all too familiar scene, Nelson and Robinson were told to leave the store and when they refused, they were handcuffed and arrested in a video that has gone viral.

Both Nelson and Robinson reached a settlement with the city for $ 1 each, with a $ 200,000 commitment to a youth entrepreneurship program, according to the New York Daily News.

In Clemons’ case, she was slammed to the ground by three Saraland Police officers, as her breasts were exposed while she was being handcuffed.

“When I saw the video, it was very inhumanely done,” Penny Poole, a member of the Gwinnett County NAACP, told reporters.

Saraland Police Department held a press conference last week defending the actions of the three officers. According to Detective Brian Mims, Clemons and her friend Canita Adams, had an alcoholic beverage with them when they came into the Waffle House restaurant to which Waffle House staffers told them they couldn’t have. Mims said the situation escalated with Clemons becoming “loud and using profanity toward the employee.” He said both Clemons and Adams threatened employees, and according to a witness, one of them said, “I can come back and shoot this place up if I need to.”

Coincidentally, the incident occurred on April 22, the same day Travis Reinking shot up a Waffle House restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee killing four. The security tape, which could have clarified exactly what happened and what was said during the entire confrontation did not include an audio.

What is “forest bathing?” It could change your mental health for the better

What is “forest bathing?” It could change your mental health for the better


What is “forest bathing?” It could change your mental health for the better

We’ll be the first to admit that we don’t go outside often enough. And we’re certainly not alone. According to the National Human Activity Pattern Survey, an average adult only spends about 5% of each day outdoors. But all that time spent indoors means we’re missing out on a potentially life-changing activity that could improve our mental health. It’s called “forest bathing,” and don’t worry — it’s not as scandalous as it sounds.

Forest bathing is a wellness practice with origins in Japan and South Korea (it’s called shinrin-yoku in Japanese). Fortunately for those of us with busy lives, it’s a beautifully simple idea. To partake in forest bathing, all you have to do is go outside, walk into a quiet forest, and surround yourself with trees to help restore and soothe your stressed mind. Dr. Frank Lipman, an integrative medicine specialist and author of How to be Well, talked to HelloGiggles about how forest bathing works, and how everyone can benefit from it.

First, forest bathing is a mental cleansing process, not a physical one. Dr. Lipman says that surrounding oneself with nature for a short period of time on a weekly or, even better, a daily basis can positively impact one’s mental state.

“Being fully present in nature puts you in a state of pleasure and relaxation, which turns on your parasympathetic nervous system,” Dr. Lipman told us. “You remain aware, but with a more soft focus that is less information-loaded and more calm and peaceful.”

What’s more, Dr. Lipman said that nature can boost serotonin levels, therefore enhancing a person’s empathy and altruism. When outside and surrounded by greenery, you’re proven to feel more “compassionate, connected, and serene,” according to Dr. Lipman.

Forest bathing is a “low-cost and effective way” to better your mood and mental clarity, Dr. Lipman added. And you don’t necessarily have to live near an undeveloped forest to reap the benefits of the practice.

According to Dr. Lipman, for city-dwellers, parks and botanical gardens can be just as rejuvenating as strolling through the woods. Getting into the green for a short amount of time, a few days a week, can prove to be a refreshing way to shed anxieties caused by work and the chaos of day-to-day life.

So the next time you’re feeling frustrated or tapped out, dip your toes into the sea of green. Forest bathing might just be the stress relief that’s been sitting right in front of us all along.

How 3D Printing Could Change How We Eat

Researchers 3-D print food with customized texture and body absorption characteristics.

Imagine a home appliance that, at the push of a button, turns powdered ingredients into food that meets the individual nutrition requirements of each household member. Although it may seem like something from science fiction, new research aimed at using 3-D printing to create customized food could one day make this a reality.

Jin-Kyu Rhee, associate professor at Ewha Womans University in South Korea, will discuss his new research and the potential of 3-D printing technology for food production at the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology annual meeting during the 2018 Experimental Biology meeting to be held April 21-25 in San Diego.

“We built a platform that uses 3-D printing to create food microstructures that allow food texture and body absorption to be customized on a personal level,” said Rhee. “We think that one day, people could have cartridges that contain powdered versions of various ingredients that would be put together using 3-D printing and cooked according to the user’s needs or preferences.”

A: Food materials are pulverized under ultra-low temperature close to -100 degrees Celsius. B: Micro-sized food materials are reconstructed into a porous film-shaped material by jetting bonding an agent under optimized water content and heat conditions. The process to build film-type materials is repeated layer by layer to form to a three-dimensional food block. C: The exterior of foods and internal microstructure of a food block with specific porosity is designed to give texture with controlled human body absorption while eating and ingesting.

3-D printing of food works much like 3-D printing of other materials in that layers of raw material are deposited to build up a final product. In addition to offering customized food options, the ability to 3-D print food at home or on an industrial scale could greatly reduce food waste and the cost involved with storage and transportation. It might also help meet the rapidly increasing food needs of a growing world population.

For the new study, the researchers used a prototype 3-D printer to create food with microstructures that replicated the physical properties and nanoscale texture they observed in actual food samples. They also demonstrated that their platform and optimized methods can turn carbohydrate and protein powers into food with microstructures that can be tuned to control food texture and how the food is absorbed by the body.

“We are only in early stages, but we believe our research will move 3-D food printing to the next level,” said Rhee. “We are continuing to optimize our 3-D print technology to create customized food materials and products that exhibit longer storage times and enhanced functionality in terms of body absorption.”

Super Bowl Winner: Top NFL Prospect Lamar Jackson Could Change Football’s Power Structure

If we have learned anything about the NFL and its surrogates in the media lately, it’s that athletes who feel empowered to speak for themselves — without prior approval — will either be mitigated or punished. That’s part of why I’ve been following the story of Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson — and the young quarterback’s fiercest advocate, mother and sports representative, Felicia Jones — as he bucks the status quo by declining to hire a traditional sports agent. Heading into the NFL draft, which begins on April 26, Jackson is poised to change both his personal and family’s realities, as it seems he will sign a first-round draft pick contract. He also stands to make a sizable contribution to the ongoing and much-needed reformation of the NFL’s inequitable power dynamics and economic engine.

Take, for instance, Jackson’s decision to decline to run the 40-meter dash for NFL scouts. Jackson is the fastest quarterback the NFL has seen in a long while. It’s obvious. And yet you can almost hear the collective dismay of league officials and team decision-makers, flabbergasted at the audacity of a player and his mother who might just understand the business side of his talent better than those who designed the system. They made an intentional, strategic decision custom-tailored to Jackson’s individual abilities and contract desires. The fact that a conventional sports agent would have rarely advised a client to do anything as off-script offers rich insight into why the one-size-fits-all approach to sports representation that the NFL tries to demand can potentially result in the athlete’s own best interest not even being the highest priority.

When I announced plans to represent myself in July 2015, I remember the experience that followed for a year and a half. I was constantly maneuvering and positioning myself in a way to establish credibility among the NFL powers that be. That was what I signed up for by declining to hire an insider who was already familiar with the front-office staff of teams throughout the league.

The beginning of my self-representation journey was rough, and despite now being satisfied with the end result, I certainly learned some valuable lessons along the way. Overall, I was most struck by how threatening my desire for self-representation was received by some, and how some of the tactics ended up discouraging other players from attempting to be self-directed free agents. I hope Jackson helps change that.

There is an unmistakable implication in the other assertion that teams are struggling to get ahold of the quarterback: that Jackson and Jones don’t know what they’re doing. This framing reinforces the coercive narrative that younger athletes who are weighing their options should depend on the professional sports agent industry to decide what is best for them. This has become an insidious grooming technique that follows the athlete throughout their professional sports career.

As someone quite familiar with the workings of the NFL, I see a different way of interpreting the storyline that organizations are unable to reach Jackson: that the teams don’t know what they’re doing or are pushing a narrative that benefits them. If teams can send out private investigators and scouts to record, follow and document the character of a player they are interested in drafting, I don’t see how they are unable to get in touch with Jackson. The man’s DMs are open. And maybe Jackson just doesn’t want to talk with the teams complaining.

I recognize that the industry of professional sports agents has some redeemable elements. In fact, I believe that the scarcity of player self-representation actually prevents some of the best sports agents from proactively adapting to these changing realities. Imagine what it could look like for an agency to actually encourage some hybrid form of self-representation, following the lead of other industry pioneers and implementing thoughtful solutions for entrepreneur minded-athletes — or just those of us with subtle elements to our game underserved by the one-size-fits-all approach. More and more of us are finding our voice and discovering ways to exchange notes. This is a necessary evolution as the status quo begins to expire.

Self-representation isn’t for everyone. But we need to normalize it, because the system as it exists now reinforces the disempowerment of athletes, which itself is fueled by a narrative that suggests we couldn’t possibly understand what’s in our own self-interest. This has negative downstream ramifications, as people generally expect athletes to remain in their proverbial box and stick to the script. They are content with us performing on the field, yet struggle to accept the fact that we are more than just jocks. Just ask Colin Kaepernick or Eric Reid. We are allowed to play, providing fans an entertaining escape from their “real world,” while we are prevented from making society confront ours. Lamar Jackson is representing a world in which his assertion matters.

In case this finds him, here are some of the things that I learned from my own experience and that I wish I would have known (and that I personally assume Felicia Jones is already aware of) as a self-representing athlete:

  1. The most important part of any first-round rookie NFL contract is how much of the deal is guaranteed (cue the Internet commenters talking about my Broncos contract). Many if not all players in the earlier part of the first round have four years fully guaranteed, while the latter half of picks of the first round have the first three years guaranteed and only a portion of the fourth year. In the 2nd round, many contracts have the first two years guaranteed. If you happen to fall to the second round, understand the amount that has historically been guaranteed at that pick — then get more.
  2. Aside from guaranteed money, cash flow is one of your most important considerations. Get as much of your money as possible paid in guaranteed roster bonuses at the beginning of training camp (instead of earned over the 17-week regular season via salary).
  3. Refuse any offset language. Teams will try to add this into your contract to rid themselves of future obligation. If you are drafted to be a franchise quarterback, the language in the deal should reflect a committed and reciprocal relationship.
  4. Rely on the NFL Players Association. As a member of the executive committee, I want to emphasize that we have the staff in place to go over any language in your contract and make sure it is right. It’s our job.
  5. And since you’re a quarterback, you should know: The concept of a “QB Premium” is not limited to veteran contracts, no matter what they tell you. Especially in structuring contracts, teams overplay the “precedent” argument in negotiations. Teams have proven time and time again that they will go against precedent for QBs (see Johnny Manziel’s contract). Get that QB Premium!

Good luck in the draft, Lamar. I’m available if you need me. My DMs are open, too.

Could you raise your baby without gender?

by

Maggie Downs

posted in Life

Is it possible to raise a child without gender?

A recent story from New York magazine’s The Cut explores families who raise theybies — “babies whose parents had decided not to reveal their sex, who used they/them pronouns for their children, and whose goal was to create an early childhood free of gendered ideas of how a child should dress, act, play, and be.”

These are parents who know the anatomy their child was born with, which is biological sex, but reject designating the child’s gender, which is how someone identifies. (Want to know more about the difference between sex and gender? The Genderbread Person is super helpful.)

The article mostly follows one couple, Bobby McCullough and Lesley Fleishman, who were inspired by a news story about a Canadian baby born without a gender designation, and decided to raise their own baby in a more gender-creative way.

“Definitely the concept of not enforcing gender stereotypes was something that was on our radar, but we simply didn’t know or have the idea on our own to not assign the baby a gender,” McCullough told reporter Alex Morris.

The couple spoke openly to friends and family about their decision and answered questions. They found a midwife who was on the same page and was willing to not register a gender. They researched how to register a birth certificate without a gender listed and started referring to the baby only with neutral pronouns like their/they, not he/she.

Several pieces of chalk in an array of rainbow colors

The goal was to allow the child to embrace their own identity, not to force one on them. 

“We wouldn’t tell somebody else how they should identify or who they should be or what they are,” McCullough said.

You should know that even if this idea feels new, it’s not. The classic feminist Lois Gould short story, X: A Fabulous Child’s Story, about a family who raise a gender-free child, first appeared in Ms. Magazine in 1972. The story reveals how uncomfortable people become when they don’t have a gender to assign to a person — in this case, a baby.

“When the (family) smiled and said, ‘It’s an X,’ nobody knew what to say. They couldn’t say, ‘Look at her cute little dimples!’ And they couldn’t say, ‘Look at his husky little biceps!’ And they couldn’t even say just plain ‘kitchycoo.’ In fact, they all thought the Joneses were playing some kind of rude joke.”

I read X: A Fabulous Child’s Story when I was in college, and it had a lasting effect on me. It’s also made me painfully aware of how often I say gendered things to babies. I remember one moment in particular, in which my friend’s son kicked his legs wildly, and I said, “He’s definitely going to be a football player!” — and then I stopped. If the baby had been a girl, would I have said the same thing?

It happens even with my own child, whom I’ve described on more than one occasion as “all boy,” even though I don’t know what that means exactly. I know many different kinds of boys.

A baby sits on the floor and plays with a red toy. It's unclear what gender the baby is.

I never considered raising my son in a more gender-creative way, although I’ve tried to avoid giving him obviously gendered toys and clothing. His preference is the color orange, which has made buying gender-neutral clothes easy, and I follow his lead for toys. He loves stuffed animals, unicorns and sparkly things, and he loves garbage trucks, monsters, and my old set of Hot Wheels cars too. None of those toys are inherently masculine or feminine, a point I’ve tried to drive home to him.

It’s getting more difficult the older he gets, however. My son is three now, and he likes to categorize things. He sees pictures of actresses and says, “Mommy,” and recently told a man on the street, “You are furry like my daddy.” He has already assigned genders to his own stuffed animals. Recently he said he didn’t want to dance, an activity he loves, because he said it was “for girls.”

I guess it’s just up to me to pose the question, “Why?” — then take his hand and encourage him to dance anyway.

Could you raise your baby without gender?

Regulatory filings suggest Apple’s first new iPhone of 2018 could debut in May or June

iPhone X Plus Release Date

It’s difficult to call the response to Apple’s iPhone X tepid considering the phone has made three times more money than every major Android vendor combined. But at least a half-dozen reliable independent reports at this point have said that Apple cut iPhone X manufacturing and parts orders multiple times since the phone was released last November. Tens of millions of iPhone X units have been sold at this point, but estimates are still far below analyst expectations, and they’re apparently well short of Apple’s expectations, too. The sky-high price tag, which starts at $ 1,000, is undoubtedly a factor. Another factor could be anticipation of this year’s iPhone launches, which will reportedly include a lower-cost version of the iPhone X and an “iPhone X Plus” with a larger OLED display.

For those reasons and more, Apple’s 2018 flagship iPhone launches are eagerly anticipated by Apple fans around the world. The bad news is they’ll all have to wait until September to get their hands on Apple’s iPhone X successors, including the less expensive version and the larger iPhone X Plus. But the good news is Apple supposedly has a fourth new iPhone model planned for release this year, and it could hit store shelves as soon as next month.

Could Entrepreneurship Help Cardi B Get a Leg Up on Her Taxes?

Cardi B might have made “money moves” famous, but recently she brought to light what many of us often wonder when we drive over massive potholes, see overflowing public trash bins, or share a train ride with homeless people who seemingly have been forgotten.

What is Uncle Sam doing with our money?

Cardi recently took to social media in a now-viral video, questioning why she has to fork over so much tax money out of her hip-hop superstardom and Mona Scott checks. Billboard reports she was more than annoyed about the 40% tax rate. (Hey, when you start making more income and moving up in those tax brackets, it’s inevitable that you’ll start getting hit in your pockets.)

“Uncle Sam, I want to know what you’re doing with my f—ing tax money,” she says in the video. “You know what I’m saying? When you donate to a kid from a foreign country, they give you updates on what they doing with your donation.”

She also expressed that she doesn’t see proof that tax money is being put to good use: “The streets are always dirty, New York one of the dirtiest cities in America. What is y’all doin’? There’s rats on the damn trains. I know you ain’t spending it in no damn prison because y’all be givin’ n—-s two underwears, one jumpsuit for like five months.”

Fans commented informing the platinum-selling star that the government uses citizens’ taxes to support programs like SSI and the military, but Cardi wasn’t having it: “How do you know tho? where is the prove? My neighborhood still look like s—!”

But what are ways anybody who has enjoyed an increase in income can see more of their money in the bank? One idea: Cardi might need to think about joining the millions of other successful female entrepreneurs of color. (By no means is this direct advisement, but it’s definitely something to look into, especially if Cardi wants to diversify her financial portfolio and build generational wealth that can be sustained for years to come.)

Consider starting a small business that is a pass-through entity. In an interview with Black Enterprise contributor Jeffrey McKinney, Thomas Jones Jr., lead tax partner at McConnell & Jones L.L.P., indicated that “most owners of pass-through entities, including S corporations, partnerships, and sole proprietorships, will see their income tax lowered with a new 20% income reduction calculation. The Act increases the amount of income allowed to be claimed as pass-through from 17.4% to 20%.”

Once you start a business, put in a provision to transfer to your children in your estate plan. “The estate tax, which applies to the transfer of property to decedents, either as a gift or through a will or trust, has been doubled,” Jones cited in the interview. “The basic amount of the exemption for individuals has jumped from $ 5 million to $ 10 million.”

Apple’s first foldable iPhone tipped to launch in 2020, could double as a tablet

Foldable iPhone Release Date

Samsung is currently the most vocal company when it comes to foldable smartphone designs, but the Korean giant has repeatedly made it clear that it is not quite ready to launch the highly-anticipated foldable Galaxy X yet.

That doesn’t mean Samsung is the only smartphone maker designing such a device though. ZTE’s Axon M is one example that comes to mind, and while it’s not for everyone, it is on the market. But Apple has foldable iPhone plans of its own, and some people seem to think the first foldable iOS device will arrive in 2020.
