Orson Scott Card ‘s Ender’s Game is such an exciting, surprising and influential sci-fi story that even if a film version was populated with unknowns, it would have a lot going for it. Director Gavin Hood is raising the bar though, populating his film with an absolutely stellar cast. The latest addition is Ben Kingsley playing Mazer Rackham, a pivotal character whose back story is kind of a major spoiler. I’ll explain with plenty of warning after...

The variety article has a pretty bad summary of the book imo.

"Futuristic tale will follow a gifted young gamer with an almost preternatural capacity for strategy and logistics who is recruited by the government to help battle an insect-like alien race"

Really, the noun they chose was gamer?

The time for reading comics is done. It’s time to live the marvel of mutated human beings, to realize that superpowers are real. And they’re here. This report on YouTube reports that a child in China has blue cat-like eyes, reflecting light back at us in the night. He’s able to do written tests in the dark and is terribly uncomfortable in the bright sunshine. Who knew, the elves of legend come from Chinese stock! Apparently he was even able to ca...

We took a number of bids to work on our yard project, and Robert's wasn't the lowest (or the highest), but he was attentive, was willing to work with our ideas and give good feedback, and was rated highest on Angie's List, so we went with him. He planned the project well and was able to give us good responses so that we could go through our HOA approval process quickly and easily, and was there to start the project on time when that came. His crew was courteous and clean, so using the house during the project wasn't an issue. Robert came by a number of times to take us through the plan, and to check in with us on the progress. As the crew was marking up the back yard for a patio, I noticed that something seemed different, and sent Robert an email about it. He was not only able to respond in the same day, but came over at the end of the day to explain what was going on, and ask us if we'd like to have it done differently. His attention to detail was great. There were a number of small things that we'd never even thought of that he was able to bring to our attention, and we're very glad with all of those touches three months on. We've enjoyed our new yard, and couldn't be happier with the work. We're planning on doing more work next summer, and we'll be calling Robert again for it.

TL;DR: wifi sucks at this location; go somewhere else if that's what you want I had an appointment nearby, so I was planning on working from this starbucks for a while today. Getting my normal drink wasn't hard, the place wasn't packed at 8:30am, and finding a place to sit wasn't hard, it's a pretty big location. Opening my new work macbook pro, I found that it hadn't connected to the wifi automatically. I thought that was weird, since I'd worked from a Starbucks for a dentist's appointment in Lake Oswego the previous week. Looking it up, it looked like the location was still using the old "attwifi" system rather than the newer "Google Starbucks" that I was used to. No problem, I thought, I'll connect to that and go. But when I was able to connect to that network, nothing worked. I wasn't able to refresh gmail, load a fresh google maps page, or able to connect to my work VPN. So, as a caveat, I only go to starbucks for the wifi, but this place blew it. I'll definitely be more careful next time about spending my money before finding out how the wifi is. This might seem like a lot of trouble for a little nit, but if you check the Starbucks description, it's coffee, light food, and wifi. Anything else is built on the base of those fundamentals. The location West of Jesuit High has the expected wifi experience, although filled with high schoolers, and in a pinch, I'd go for the Peet's in Fred Meyer next door.
