    Somehow, this seemed like an appropriate image. This is one of those seasons when people look back to history, but I’m looking a little further back than usual. Any podcast fanatic will almost inevitably eventually come across Mike Duncan’s History of Rome podcast. Duncan began the weekly dip into history while he was a student in the podcast Paleolithic of 2007 and carried on steadily until 2012, chugging determinedly past kings, the republic, and right on through an unwinding list of emperors. The result isn’t just one of the most monumental efforts in recording of any kind, but a genuinely enjoyable collection that generates the effects of something like a David Attenborough documentary, leaving you both educated and satisfied.   Eventually, I listened to all 179 episodes of the series twice, and was sorry when I reached the end. Both times. It had been years, likely decades, since I’d chewed through anything on Roman history, but after listening to Duncan’s podcast, I picked up Mary Beard’s book SPQR: A History of Ancient Rome. It’s a fantastic work, as interesting and lively as all the good reviews make...
    (ViacomCBS) – SHOWTIME welcomes a new comer to its Sunday night lineup on November 14th with the premiere of Yellowjackets. This coming-of-age/survival epic/psychological horror tells the story of a talented high school girls’ soccer team who is involved in a plane crash and forced to survive on their own in the wilderness. Throughout Yellowjackets viewers will watch as this once unified team devolves into separate savage clans fighting for survival while also tracking the fall out from those events 25 years later. CBS‘ Matt Weiss spoke to Christina Ricci who plays the adult version of one of the girls involved in the crash ahead of Sunday night’s premiere.

    Whether it’s divorce, relocation, expecting a baby, loss of job, pets that don’t get along, loss of homeowners insurance, change in zoning laws, we hear all the same stories that most rescue organizations and shelters do. The difference is that, if it were a domestic cat we were talking about, at least there might be some hope of finding an appropriate adopter. But, with a wild cat, that’s not the case. The All-Too-Familiar Story of Exotic Cat Ownership What we share below is a typical story we’ve heard time and time again: I recently got married and now I have a baby due soon. My husband hates my serval and has threatened to shoot him since my cat’s become aggressive. He’s an unneutered male with all his claws. He used to be easy for me to care for and handle. He loved going for walks and to butt heads. But, once he became sexually mature, his behavior drastically changed. He’ll appear to be nice one minute, and the next he raises his chin, makes strange noises and lunges at...
    Sean Lennon is speaking his mind. The 45-year-old son of Beatles legend John Lennon and Yoko Ono has become somewhat known for his sharp opinions and set his sights on "political correctness" during a Sunday Twitter tirade. "When I was young ppl used to say racist s--- about Asians around me all the time and then be like ‘Oh sorry! But you’re not reeeally Asian so…’ and I think they sincerely thought that would make me feel better," he recalled. "I’m not exactly sure why I brought that up but I think it’s because I want to say that I grew up in a time when there was zero political correctness." The musician continued: "I literally saw political correctness being invented right in front of me (at certain schools) and then distributed and eventually enforced as a mindset and ideology." SEAN ONO LENNON MOCKS PORTLAND STATUE VANDALS: ‘THE PYRAMIDS SHOULD BE TORN DOWN IMMEDIATELY’ He said that he understands the idea that being politically correct – and having others do the same – would lead to a more "integrated" and...
    Ford F-150 Lightning, which the company plans to start delivering by the middle of next year. Last week, Ford Motor Co. debuted its Ford Lightning, an F-150 pickup truck that is all-electric. Many people went bananas. Now, they said, we’ll really see EVs take-off because we’ve got an automobile manufacturer that knows how to build a truck that looks like a truck, not that goofy futuristic Tesla Cybertruck. Before I go farther, this is not about Elon Musk, certainly no paean to him. Heaven knows he’s deeply controversial, and holds to many views I find abhorrent, including but not limited to anti-unionism, COVID denial, and a brand of devil-take-the-hindmost libertarianism. This is about what Tesla engineers are putting on the road. How much credit Musk personally deserves or doesn’t for his company kickstarting EVs while the legacy carmakers still actively opposed them depends on your point of view. But much of the kind of talk I have seen or read in the wake of Ford’s announcement has been ridiculously anti-Tesla and pro Ford, even going so far as to say the F-150e will kill Tesla because the CyberTruck is—to recount...
    Elgato is one of the most notable brands in the consumer tech market when it comes to products aimed toward content creators and streamers. And today, the Corsair-owned company announced that it is expanding its line of creator-focused products. One of the more creative new options is a Green Screen Mouse Mat, which allows streamers and content creators to blend a flat surface like their desk into their video feed. Some streamers, such as competitive gamers and speedrunners, use a hand cam setups to show off their hand movements while on stream. The mouse pad could be a convenient way to let creators put that space to extra use instead of just showing their desk. Streamers doing unboxing videos could replace the mat with an enhanced image of the item they are opening, or gamers could make the game appear around their hands, as a couple of examples. The Elgato Green Screen Mouse Mat is available now and costs $30. It’s an extra-large mouse pad, at 37.0 x 15.7 x 0.1 inches. Alongside a new green screen mouse...

    President Donald Trump denied Sunday a report he seriously proposed he be added to Mount Rushmore, but indicated he thought it was a “good idea.” “This is Fake News by the failing New York Times and bad ratings CNN,” Trump wrote on social media. “Never suggested it although, based on all of the many things accomplished during the first 3 1/2 years, perhaps more than any other Presidency, sounds like a good idea to me!” This is Fake News by the failing @nytimes & bad ratings @CNN.

    Scott Olson/Getty Images President Donald Trump said he’s not against the idea of having his face added to Mt. Rushmore, even as he swatted “fake news” reports that suggest he took the initiative to make that happen. “This is Fake News by the failing New York Times & bad ratings CNN,” Trump tweeted Sunday night. “Never suggested it although, based on all of the many things accomplished during the first 3 1/2 years, perhaps more than any other Presidency, sounds like a good idea to me!” This is Fake News by the failing @nytimes & bad ratings @CNN.

    President Trump on Sunday denied reports that the White House contacted the governor of South Dakota about carving his face into Mount Rushmore — but said that adding his likeness to the historic monument “sounds like a good idea to me!” “This is Fake News by the failing @nytimes & bad ratings @CNN,” Trump fumed in a Twitter in a post linking to the report. “Never suggested it although, based on all of the many things accomplished during the first 3 1/2 years, perhaps more than any other Presidency, sounds like a good idea to me!” The New York Times article, published Saturday, states a White House rep reached out to South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem last year, inquiring about the process of adding Trump’s face to the nearly 80-year-old monument. The story, which was later picked up by CNN, also notes Trump previously spoke to Noem about it himself during a meeting in the Oval Office. While denying the report, Trump on Sunday tweeted an image of his face superimposed in front of the mountain. In it, Trump...
