I've heard horror stories in the past about television networks denying their content to service providers. What happens is that a contract expires between, say, HBO (or its parent company) and Dish Network. So HBO is no longer beholden to previous terms and wants more money or whatever and, until Dish Network coughs up the demands or they meet somewhere in the middle, Dish can't broadcast HBO or any of its subnetworks, etc.
Why do we even bother forecasting weather more than 48 hours in advance? Is there any point to it at all?
Earlier today, I was reading an article on CNN.com in response to Trump's tweets aimed at Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez , Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley telling them to go back to where they came from and berating them in other ways simply for being women of color.
Reports have been circulating through local social and news media that the lagoon in Humboldt Park in the northwest side of Chicago may have an interloper of sorts.
Today, the U.S. Women’s National (Soccer/Football) Team won the 2019 World Cup for the second consecutive time, fourth overall. They came, they saw, they conquered... on the biggest stage possible in the most dominating way possible.
Not only is today the last day before Illinois’ gas tax doubles, but normal vehicle registration will jump by about 50%, electric vehicle registration jumps by what feels like 1000% (I don’t wanna do the math), and it seems like a bunch of other taxes are kicking in as well.
Wait wait wait... instead of burying people, Washington state wants to pass a law allowing for human composting?? I’m both mortified and morbidly intrigued. I should probably check and see if this is even legit news.
The saying of record in Chicagoland is that we have two seasons... winter and construction.
I’ve always been a Nirvana fan in some way, shape, or form. Not always a consistent listener as I’ve had spells where I’d listen all the damn time and others where I’d go months or even years without firing up an album. But the enjoyment and respect has always persisted in the end.
The other day, I looked at a truck emblazoned with a Pepsi logo. For some reason, to that point, I had never really paid attention to the fact that Pepsi’s newish logo with lowercase typeface had a weird, um, issue with the “e.”
I have nothing against Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin. Well, I should qualify that statement by saying I had nothing against them until yesterday.
With all the Trump hate going around — the lowest ratings ever and whatnot — all the Democrats should have to do is get behind their horse and ride it to an easy victory.
Although I do not live in Aurora, IL, I have long considered it a “home.”
W. T. F.???
It’s about to turn a little white here in Chicagoland. Yup, it’ll be fun alright.
I’d post something more substantial, but my mind is spinning so much over this image George Takei tweeted that I just cannot focus on anything else.
So far today, I have received no less than a dozen SMS notifications, 25+ Instagram notifications, Lord-knows how many Apple News notifications, among other less important notifications on my iPhone.
I keep finding myself having to explain to people how comic art can be a powerful conveyance of emotion. For some reason, they still don't always buy it. So how about I share some art I found on Twitter this morning commemorating the 17th anniversary of the September 11 attacks on our country.
So some Illinois kid visiting Seattle is upset that his MAGA hat was knocked off his head, taken, thrown to the ground, and spit on while the guy committing the crime hurled insults at him? He thought he should be afforded the right to wear the hat, reaction free?
Congratulations to France on their World Cup win. I admit I didn’t watch any of the World Cup until today. Katie was really getting into it so I watched some with her although I was rooting for Croatia.
It’s true. They were warned... They are doomed... And on Friday the 13th, nothing will save them.
NPR reported on a study published by researchers at Temple University and the Wisconsin HOPE Lab that concludes that 36 percent of college students are “food insecure,” another 36 percent are “housing insecure,” and another 9 percent are outright homeless.
To the planners and participants in today’s March For Our Lives, my unyielding awe and unwavering support.
As I said last week when I profiled Cameron Kasky, if I find out the name of the girl who butted heads with the NRA’s Dana Loesch, I would similarly profile her.
This is Cameron Kasky and he’s one of many of my new heroes.
First off, congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles on winning their first ever Super Bowl! It was an amazing game. That’s all you need say about it.
This shouldn’t be funny. It truly should not be. But it is.
Dear U.S. Government,
Whether you are a Republican or a Democrat or an Independent or whatever... DO YOUR DAMN JOB!
Last weekend, Katie and I stopped at both Sam’s Club and Costco to pick up some needs. On the way home, I asked her which club we should continue with when our memberships come due.
Did you go Black Friday shopping today? Did you line up last night or very early this morning or did you wait until a more reasonable hour?
If tech companies like Amazon, Apple, PayPal, or Google we’re to offer full-service banking options, would you switch from your standard bank to use one of them?
This was tweeted by our POTUS yesterday at 3:12 p.m.
I like to think that, at birth, we are all the same mentally and emotionally. We come from our mothers as blank slates full of a desire to learn, to glean, to improve on our station in life insofar as a child is apt.
So, say a big multinational retailer that sells, well, just about anything you can imagine that runs the gamut from A to Z offered you the opportunity to have anything you order from them delivered not just to your home but inside your house if you have a special lock on your door that would provide access to this company’s delivery drivers, would you do it?
