    A new Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves trailer releases and provides a better look at Paramount's movie adaptation of the tabletop role-playing game. Directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves stars Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, and Hugh Grant.

    The UK government has announced that it is set to considerably reform its policy on transgender prisoners so that inmates with “male genitalia”, or who were convicted of sexual offences, will be prohibited from being placed in women’s prisons. Following a review initiated by the short-lived administration of former PM Liz Truss, who was unceremoniously kicked out of office by her own party in October for attempting to institute a set of mild free-market reforms, the Conservative government announced on Wednesday that it is prepared to change its policy on housing transgender inmates. Under the proposed framework, biologically male transgender...

    I realize this is old news but, why is Savage banned from entering the UK? All I am able to find is provoking violence and fostering hate. This is rather vague. Does anyone know what specifically provoked the ban?
  • Mentally disabled girl, 14, raped by her uncle is refused an abortion by Polish hospitals

    A disabled 14-year-old who was raped by her own uncle has been refused an abortion in Poland, sparking outrage in the conservative country. The Catholic nation has some of the strictest laws on abortion in Europe, and doctors can even refuse to provide them on ethical grounds, a law which has been slammed by women's rights activists. Termination is only legal when the pregnancy is the result of a criminal act such as rape or incest, or when the woman's health is at risk. Even though the underage girl was clearly a victim of abuse, two separate hospitals in her...

    Senator Ron Johnson on Thursday called for Congress to investigate vaccine manufacturers and the Covid vax approval process in response to Project Veritas’ explosive undercover video exposing Pfizer’s alleged plans to ‘mutate’ the Covid virus. Pfizer is experimenting with dangerous gain-of-function on Covid-19, according to a director of research for the Pharma company. Federal health agencies have been captured by Big Pharma and grossly derelict in their duties throughout the pandemic.” Ron Johnson said. “It’s time for Congress to thoroughly investigate vaccine manufacturers and the entire COVID vaccine approval process,” he said.

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) joined TikTok on Wednesday to complain about being kicked off the House Intelligence Committee — though TikTok is a Chinese-owned app increasingly seen as a national security threat. In the video, Schiff asks for money from supporters, claiming that Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) banned him from the committee “all for doing my job, for holding Trump accountable, and standing up to extreme MAGA Republicans.” [snip] It is not clear what device Schiff used to create and post his video. As of Thursday morning, it is the only video on Schiff’s TikTok page, where...

    Is Atlanta a good place to live? Recent rankings certainly say so. In September 2022, Money magazine rated Atlanta the best place to live in the U.S., based on its strong labor market and job growth. The National Association of Realtors calls it the top housing market to watch in 2023, noting that Atlanta's housing prices are lower than those in comparable cities and that it has a rapidly growing population. But this is only part of the story. My new book, "Red Hot City: Housing, Race, and Exclusion in Twenty-First Century Atlanta," takes a deep dive into the last...
