'Black Panther' fans have so much thirst for breakout star Winston Duke - 18時間前  Mashable

It takes something extra to stand out in a Black Panther cast filled with achingly beautiful humans. Whatever it is, Winston Duke has got it. The actor behind M'Baku, leader of the movie's Jabari Tribe, steals just about every scene he appears in. Even his first scene, when he challenges T'Challa to ritual combat for Wakanda's throne... how many of you were quietly just cheering him on?

We regret to inform you that dogs named 'Bitcoin' exist - 19時間前  Mashable

Every day we stray further from God's light. Case in point: it appears that, on this cursed Earth, there are more than zero dogs named Bitcoin. Yes, for some reason, real humans have looked into a dog's beautiful, loving eyes and thought, "This dog should be named Bitcoin." We don't know why and we certainly can't stop it — all we can do is let you know and hope that this idea doesn't become a trend. Here's one dog named Bitcoin, a Maltese puppy who has a very pleasant Instagram presence. Luckily, Bitcoin seems to be interested in cryptocurrency (judging by her captions, anyway), so perh...more

Google's firing of James Damore was legal, according to a federal labor agency - 13時間前  Mashable

A federal agency has found that Google was well within its legal rights to fire James Damore in 2017. The company dismissed its former engineer after he wrote a paper arguing that woman aren't as biologically equipped for leadership roles as men. Damore filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board after his firing, but a newly released January memo from the agency sides with Google.

There's a striking difference between Obama and Trump's responses to school shootings - 16時間前  Mashable

On Friday, President Donald Trump visited Parkland, Florida in the wake of a school shooting in a high school that left 17 people dead. But Trump has faced criticism over the way he carried himself during that visit. After an awkward meeting with first responders, the president and first lady Melania Trump stood together for a friendly photo op, which in itself seems insensitive. Trump had a huge smile on his face in the photo, and flashed his now signature thumbs up. Trump updated his Twitter cover photo with the picture from the meeting Friday evening.

Shuri from 'Black Panther' may be a princess, but she's queen of our hearts - 17時間前  Mashable

It's hard to say who among the incredible cast of characters in Black Panther reigns supreme.

After Florida shooting, gun control becomes a global conversation - 20時間前  Mashable

When you move to America from a country with more effective gun control laws, one of the first things you learn is how hard it is to talk to Americans — on either side of the political divide — about the gun issue.  It was particularly difficult when I arrived on these shores in 1996, direct from living in Scotland during its (and Britain's) worst-ever school shooting. In the tiny town of Dunblane, a 43-year old former shopkeeper and scoutmaster brought four handguns to a school gymnasium full of five-year-olds. He shot and killed 16 of them and their teacher, then turned his ...more
