    The Vatican’s Gay Overlords [Opinion]

    Marveling at the mysterious sanctum that his new book explores, the French journalist Frédéric Martel writes that “even in San Francisco’s Castro” there aren’t “quite as many gays.” He’s talking about the Vatican. And he’s delivering a bombshell. Although the book’s publishers have kept it under tight wraps, I obtained a copy in advance of its release next Thursday. It will come out in eight languages and 20 countries, under the title “Sodoma,” as in Sodom, in Western Eur...

    Vince Gilligan’s ‘Breaking Bad’ Movie Headed To Netflix & AMC

    No one would comment, but word is that the two networks might have their roles reversed, with Netflix taking first window and AMC second. The Breaking Bad series aired originally on AMC, with seasons subsequently made available for streaming on Netflix. For Netflix and AMC to share the Breaking Bad follow-up is fitting as the two outlets share the credit for the success of the original series. Gilligan acknowledged the streamer’s contribution in his acceptance speech for the series’ first be...

    The reports of bitcoin environmental damage are garbage

    I have a background in electricity, from when I was an investment banker. I worked in a Natural Resources & Power group for about 8 years and modelled electricity systems and assets in the UK and China in the context of acquisitions, capital raisings, restructurings, and regulatory submissions. One of the banks that I worked for was HSBC, in their emerging markets M&A team, and I know China well.

    2019 is the year the streaming wars get real

    For cord cutters and streaming lovers, 2019 will mean two things: A raft of new streaming services will hit the scene, and users will see major changes to viewing libraries. Two major new streaming services will launch this year from Disney (DIS) and WarnerMedia, the parent company of CNN. That means more movies, TV shows and originals, but also greater stratification.

    Could Expanding Employee Ownership Be the Next Big Economic Policy?

    TWO LIKELY DEMOCRATIC presidential contenders in 2020 have made quiet strides in recent years to bring into vogue a little-known policy that could reduce economic inequality — one that harnesses current law to expand workers’ ability to become owners in their place of employment. Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., have worked to advance legislation on employee stock ownership plans, or ESOPs, which are retirement vehicles that allow a business owner to sell their co...

    The Guy Who Owns ‘Avengers: Endgame’ URL Is Holding It For Ransom to Score Premiere Tickets

    Anyone hoping to find out more about “Avengers: Endgame” following the official trailer debut by going to www.AvengersEndgame.com got a frustrating and hilarious surprise: The URL automatically reroutes to 20th Century Fox’s “Deadpool” movie page, which is currently promoting the PG-13 rated “Once Upon a Deadpool.” While it’s a trick Wade Wilson/Deadpool would pull himself, The Wrap confirms the URL owner is actually @AGuyInChair (real name is staying anonymous for now).

    Trump on climate change: ‘People like myself, we have very high levels of intelligence but we’re not necessarily such believers.’

    President Trump on Tuesday dismissed a landmark report compiled by 13 federal agencies detailing how damage from global warming is intensifying throughout the country, saying he is not among the “believers” who see climate change as a pressing problem. The comments were the president’s most extensive yet on why he disagrees with his own government’s analysis, which found that climate change poses a severe threat to the health of Americans, as well as to the country’s infrastructure, ec...

    Miley Cyrus lost her home in southern California’s Woolsey Fire, one of three major fires currently tearing through the state. Gerard Butler photographed himself standing in the wreckage of his Malibu home, which he said was only partially destroyed. Villa de la Vina, the Spanish-style home best known for being the set of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, was damaged by the blaze. The ranch that was recently used as the set of Westworld burned to the ground. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West repo...
