Hey Windows users, Apple still loves you (according to this job listing)
Remember when Apple said iTunes is toast and that it will be replaced by several, separate media apps? Well, it only happened on macOS Catalina where iTunes has been split into Music, Podcasts and TV applications; on Windows, iTunes and the web browser are still the default way to handle Apple's many media services.  According to a new job listing, spotted by Neowin, Apple is working on it.  The company is looking for a Senior Software Engineer to "build the next generation of media apps for Windows."  The ad doesn't outright say what the company's Media Apps team is working on, but it's fair to assume that it might be Windows-based versions of apps like Music and Podcasts.  Read more...More about Apple, Windows, Tech, and Big Tech Companies

Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey talk Amy Adams on 'The Office' and that Meryl Streep photo
The main cast members of The Office have become some of the most famous names in Hollywood, but some of the show's minor guest stars have also made it big. For instance, Sharp Objects star Amy Adams played Katy, a woman who sold purses to the Scranton branch in the sixth and final episode of Season 1. Adams first appears in the episode titled "Hot Girl," which aired on April 26, 2005. Michael allows her character Katy to sell purses in the conference room, and he and Dwight spend the day trying to impress her. On the latest episode of the Office Ladies podcast, former co-stars Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey chatted about Amy Adams on the show, and finally told the story behind their iconic photo with Adams and Meryl Streep at the 2010 Golden Globe Awards.

When Republicans say "How will you pay for Medicare for All?" Democrats should answer: "Mexico will pay for it"
The "pay-for game" is that gotcha game that Conservatives like to play, wherein the ridiculous boondoggles favored by the right (billions for Trump's wall, more than a trillion in tax cuts for the wealthy, massive increases in Pentagon and intelligence agency spending, even a $16 million bomb used for no military reason) can be financed with infinite amounts of deficit spending, while any program that benefits the majority of America needs has to be "fully funded," generally by making cuts in other programs that benefit the majority of America -- something that the idiotic Democratic establishment has bought into. When Republicans are asked how they'll pay for their corporate welfare, authoritarian up-armoring, mass surveillance and military adventures, they are silent, or, if they are Donald Trump, the insist that "Mexico will pay for it." America has spent $10b on Trump's wall so far (Trump picked a design that can be carved through in minutes with a $100 reciprocating saw and a $15 blade), a downpayment on the $21b+ that Trump has pledged to spend. On the campaign trail, Trump promised the "Mexico would pay for the wall" more than 200 times on the campaign trail. Trump has added $4t to the national debt in less than 3 years in office. Republican' "pay-for game" is an unfunny joke: they are the party of fiscal irresponsibility and unfunded liabilities, while Democrats are the party of paying for programs with a proven ROI: public health, public education, sustainable energy, green resiliency, public infrastructure, and other programs that deliver more dollars out than the government puts in to them.

It's time to add internet slang 'ship' to the dictionary
I came of age online. LiveJournal and Tumblr were fixtures for me in the early 2010s, when Harry Potter fan-fiction was written at warp speed and Tumblr had not yet banned adult content. In those days, one could not go far without running into the internet slang term “ship.” Ship, a term so ubiquitous in fandom it has its own Wikipedia page, was immortalized on Urban Dictionary in 2003, in noun and verb form. Noun, short for relationship. Verb, to endorse a romantic relationship.  While the concept of wanting two fictional characters to have sex/fall in love predates “ship,” the term reportedly first entered the online forum sphere in the 1990s with The X-Files. Fans who wanted to see Mulder and Scully together were known as “relationshippers,” which was truncated to just “R’shippers,” and finally just “shippers.”  Read more...More about Dating, Ship, Oxford English Dictionary, Dictionaries, and Culture

Groups that existed on the fringe of British politics a generation ago have recently become key playersIn the 1970s, when I was still at primary school, I was convinced that Britain had four parties: Conservative, Labour, Liberal and Others. Those were the parties listed by the BBC when it showed the running totals of seats on election night.When I realised my mistake, the word “others” continued to intrigue me. And I’ve come to think that one way of understanding the last quarter-century of British politics is as the slow reveal of what lay behind that label. In our fragmented political culture, parties that once didn’t warrant a namecheck now help make the running. Continue reading...
