It’s near impossible to keep up with TV. There’s just so much more of it — so many episodes, so many seasons! The medium just keeps going, even when it’s not initially supposed to (ahem, Big Little Lies season 2). So unless you know exactly what kind of show you’re looking for, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of the very best TV shows of 2019. This is everything that’s debuted this year (so far) that’s worth catching, from new shows to returning series. On this list, you’ll find everything from zany sketch comedies to fuzzy bears to contract killers and, you know, Game of Thrones. There are adaptations of obscure comic book characters, and then there’s Doom Patrol, a TV series based on the most simultaneously absurd and high-concept superhero team in the DC Universe, available only on the company’s subscription-based streaming-and-digital-comics platform. But Doom Patrol … [Read more...] about The best TV shows of 2019, so far

French revolutionary judge sim We. The Revolution (a clunky capitalisation I shall not use often, sorry devs Polyslash) is out now, sneaking up on me quiet as a guillotine blade. It’s vaguely similar to Papers, Please, in that it’s a game about being a political cog in a complex machine. Less similarly, this is about being one of the bigger cogs – a judge of some political influence – with your behaviour both in and out of court steering who will be in control of Paris when the fires burn out and the heads stop rolling. Below, a trailer looking at how the complex court cases work. We The Revolution looks surprisingly intricate, with the court cases giving you case notes to rifle through, witnesses to cross-examine and sentencing that is left up to player choice. Whether the suspect is guilty or innocent of their crime may be less important than how the case looks to the increasingly decapitation-hungry public. You even need to choose what kind of tone to … [Read more...] about We. The Revolution faces the court of public opinion today
On June 11th, 2018, the Federal Communications Commission repealed rules protecting net neutrality. These rules prevented private internet service providers from engaging in such practices as speeding up or slowing down traffic to specific websites, blocking access to law-abiding websites, or offering faster speeds to sites or users who pay them for the privilege. For example, an ISP like Comcast or Time Warner couldn't force you to pay an extra fee to stream Netflix in full HD like some cellular carriers already do. They also couldn't block entire sites for basic plans and force you to pay for a higher-priced package to access them. If you had a 100 megabit per second plan, the ISPs couldn’t have a say in how you used those 100 megabits so long as you weren’t breaking the law.So what happens now? Since the FCC did away with those protections, we haven't seen a dramatic shift in how ISPs operate. But that doesn't mean everything is sitting still. Acitivists are still … [Read more...] about What you need to know about net neutrality in 2019
President Donald Trump told former FBI Director James Comey that he had serious concerns about the judgment of his first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, and Trump's chief of staff asked days later if Flynn's communications were being monitored under a secret surveillance warrant, according to memos maintained by Comey and obtained by The Associated Press.Trump also told Comey that Russian President Vladimir Putin told him that Russia had "some of the most beautiful hookers in the world" even as he adamantly, and repeatedly, distanced himself from a salacious allegation involving prostitutes in Moscow, the documents state.The 15 pages of documents contain new details about a series of interactions with Trump that Comey found so unnerving that he documented them in writing. Those encounters in the weeks before Comey's May 2017 firing include a Trump Tower discussion about a possible encounter between Trump and prostitutes in Moscow; a White House dinner at which Comey says … [Read more...] about What did former FBI director write about his meetings with Trump?

Wisconsin is failing to keep farm pollution from fouling its water, says the leader of a nonprofit that represents conservation officers charged with enforcing state standards.“Failing not because conservationists and farmers don’t know what to do but because society does not expect agriculture to protect the environment,” Jim VandenBrook, director of the Wisconsin Land and Water Conservation Association, said in a recent letter discussing a landmark study the group has completed. VandenBrook has never before made such a stark statement, and it saddens him to do so now, he said in an interview with the Wisconsin State Journal.But he said there is “stunning” evidence showing the state has lost ground in efforts to prevent manure and manufactured fertilizer from making drinking water a health hazard for nearly 100,000 families, and leaving portions of more than 1,000 of Wisconsin’s lakes and streams with unnatural growths of weeds and bacteria than can … [Read more...] about Failure and a call for patience amid rising farm pollution of state waters
