Summer is now officially here. For me that means butchering countless mangos with my trash knifeskills and playing Daryl Braithwaite's One Summer on repeat. Summer break is also a time where my fellow colleagues and I like to catch up on some of the books that have been piling up on our shelves and Kindles for months/years. Here's the reads you'll find us getting into our eyeballs. More »

I am watching a video of the outward crevice of a human’s large intestine. The cavity, exposed in the cold light of day, is isolated from the owner’s body; it pulsates to what sounds like wet dog food squishing in the palm of a hand. It is, at turns, grotesque, then abstract, suggestive of the hungry mouth of a carnivorous sea creature. It is what a high-minded curator might call “liminal” in a thesis on the postmodern diaspora as expressed in avant-garde video art. Instead, it appears next to...

Robotics is rapidly being transformed by advances in artificial intelligence. And the benefits are widespread: We are seeing safer vehicles with the ability to automatically brake in an emergency, robotic arms transforming factory lines that were once offshored and new robots that can do everything from shop for groceries to deliver prescription drugs to people who have trouble doing it themselves.

In 1996 a movie was unleashed on the world that resurrected the slasher genre from the consumerist graveyard of the 1980s. Not only that, it completely spoofed and subverted it. Scream was a movie that should never have happened, never should have worked. And yet it managed to redefine horror and become a cult classic. But that was twenty-three years ago. Does it still hold up in 2019? More »

After the large V8s and bulky shapes of the 1960s, times got tougher for automakers. The market got more competitive and challenges like safety concerns and fuel shortages drove manufacturers to think harder about what cars should be like. It was a complicated process, but Peter Wherrett is here to coach us through it. More »

It can feel like the holiday toy-buying gets a little out of hand this time of year. We want to see our kids’ faces light up on Christmas morning, but we don’t want to drown in a sea of plastic to make it happen. That’s why adding a couple of STEM toys into the mix can be such a great middle ground. Kids are naturally curious little beings who like to dabble in science, technology, engineering and maths; parents like to feel as though at least some of their toys have educational...

South Park jokes often very pointedly come at someone's expense. But a throwaway joke from the Season 23 episode that aired Tuesday, Dec 3 had an unintended victim for a change. A real person from Fairway, Colo. got bombarded with hundreds of calls from fans misdialing a number advertised as co-creator Trey Parker's during the episode titled "Basic Cable." The number appeared in an in-universe commercial urging streaming services to call and buy the rights to a variety of fake spin-off shows...

Like most guys of a certain vintage, I have mixed feelings about my body. Staying lean and not surrendering to the siren’s call of the dreaded 'Dadbod' is a key concern. But then so is building and maintaining enough muscle so that I can keep up with the young bucks on the soccer field or in the gym. One of the main keys to success is your diet. You need a meal plan that's high in healthy carbs, fats and proteins. More importantly, it needs to be easy to prepare and affordable - so you'll...

Before Star Wars belonged to Disney, it belonged to Kathleen Kennedy. George Lucas himself picked the legendary producer to run his beloved namesake, Lucasfilm, before Mickey Mouse swooped in and bought it all up. And at that time the plan was always this: A new trilogy of films, which ends later this month in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. More »

The nature of Andrzej Sapkowski’s Witcher books being more focused on a collection of time-strewn short stories than it is actual linear novels makes the particular trial of adapting them for television a struggle. It was one Lauren Schmidt Hissrich wrangled with when she helped bring Geralt to life for Netflix—but we almost got a very different take on it. More »

Last year Valve proclaimed that it would allow virtually any game on its Steam service, so long as the game wasn’t illegal or “straight up trolling”—but activist-minded developers who have made games about the Hong Kong protests have realised that, perhaps, there are other ways to get barred from the gaming platform.

There's been a lot of (understandable) hand-wringing around deepfakes, but consider this: What if you could swap your face onto your cat's body? Not so apocalyptic anymore, right? It looks like that's the pitch for Snapchat Cameo. You can use it to superimpose a face over another face in your Snaps, creating a sort of low-rent deepfake GIF or video clip. While the upcoming feature hasn't technically been revealed, some Snapchat users in France got to access it a bit early on Sunday. TechCrunch...

Apples do a lot of heavy lifting around the holidays. We bake them in pies, drink their fermented juice, and sip on spiced cider. Apple brandy is my favourite vehicle for this particular flavour, and when paired with Bénédictine liqueur, it makes a drink that tastes like a more alcoholic version of your favourite seasonal hard cider.

Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman is returning to the big screen to save the world — but this time, she’s not fighting alongside the Allies in World War I. The first trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 transports the superheroine to a decade defined by big hair, iconic musicians, and Ghostbusters. It’s also a decade defined by the Cold War, and that’s when Wonder Woman’s story takes place. Gadot told an audience gathered at Comic-Con in Brazil that Wonder Woman is “quite lonely, she’s lost all of her friends...

It's been a long, patience-testing road for Wonder Woman fans. The movie's sequel was originally slated for Nov. 2019, but it eventually got pushed back to June 2020 due to Warner Bros.' desire for another summer release. Still, they say good things come to those who wait, and we finally have some footage! The trailer for Wonder Woman 1984, which sees the alliterative Amazonian facing off against Cheetah during the Cold War, is every bit as epic as we could have hoped. Is it June yet? Read...
