"... we have decided not to renew our agreement in the US with Epix, the cable network, which means that some high profile movies including Hunger Games: Catching Fire, World War Z and Transformers: Age of Extinction, will expire at the end of September in the US. If you want to see them on Netflix US, now is the time."

Specifically, some 2014-2015 seasons are becoming available just before the 2015-2016 season.

"Not sure if you got my last email but wanted to touch base again. I was wondering if you wanted to try our email marketing and lead generation solutions" ... says the guy who harvested my address from a forum I haven't posted to in over a decade. #NopeNopeNope

I use Sneakemail, and have one e-mail address per vendor / mailing list / whatever. (The above junk was sent to the address I used for Slashdot.)

Wow, six of the top ten public high schools are in New Jersey. (Two of those six are here in Monmouth County. One of those two is where my older granddaughter will be next month.)

(edit: added "public")
The Newsweek High School Rankings have been published for over a decade, recognizing the achievements of some of the best public high schools in the U.S. for college readiness.

"Countless questions may remain about the logistics of Pope Francis' visit next month, but the man they call the unofficial mayor of Philadelphia's pub scene says his papal planning is well under way. 'I have my order all ready. It's five loaves, two fishes, a few jugs of water and two miracles,' said Fergus Carey, better known as Fergie."

I went to a "Weird Al" Yankovic concert on Tuesday night. This was my second-favorite song.

"TL;DR: The phrase 'Black lives matter' carries an implicit 'too' at the end; it's saying that black lives should also matter. Saying 'all lives matter' is dismissing the very problems that the phrase is trying to draw attention to."

Actually I can only speak to what I was intending which was not what you are saying I was intending, which, of course, is the whole point of this discussion.  Right?  What BLM intends is exactly what it intends and to speak about it as if it is up for debate or opinion is a big FAT category error.  I do agree with your resistance to redefinition as well as your characterization of subsuming association.  What is needed is fundamental understanding, which is painfully absent in the agenda-based media, hence the big FAT period.  By leaving a statement right where it is uttered one is forced to deal with the context in which it was uttered without over or undertones.  Clarity is only possible when you consider the source within its original context.  There is much to be learned if we can come to this point as a society.

Finally, just this morning, I was thinking about how there is an automatic reaction in today's society to cast everything in terms of bleak opposition (you will never be like me) or subsumed co-opting (you have always been exactly like me).  There is almost never a conversation about how much all humans have in common and whether that can be a basis for normalization.  It's deeply disturbing to me and always has been.  This mindless disparate point is what I have dedicated my life to eradicating.  I am not advocating the eradication of dissonance or even the right to defer or disagree.  What I am saying is that concentration upon the automatic assumption that there is a friend and an enemy is only going to blow this planet to shreds.  Humanity has to begin to find common ground as a basis for addressing what marginalization even means.  This would be the deep understanding I am referring to.  I hope that helps to clarify what I was trying to say.

"You know what would make chess more fun?" my younger granddaughter said. "If you could use the pieces you capture from the other player."

It would make for a very crowded board (without further rules), but might be a worthwhile game.

"[CID Executive Director Carrie] Gartner initially approached her [Jen Henderson, the only registered voter living within the community improvement district] in June to explain the goals of the CID and ask her to consider 'unregistering her vote' so the property owners could make the decision. The more she researched the situation, Henderson said, things 'just didn’t seem to be as good as they were saying to me at first.'”

A mistake by representatives of the Business Loop 70 Community Improvement District means a sales tax increase the district needs to thrive will require approval by a single University of Missouri student.

Well, it rained in Mountain View last night, so I guess this is a week for rare atmospheric events.

Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan's experience with miscarriage is not a rare one.

once you mention you've had one, everyone else shares similar stories. In reality, 4/5 fertilizations do not result in a baby, most of those 4 lost aren't even noticed by the mother.
