  2. FCC Fines Networks Millions for Airing Olympus Has Fallen Emergency Alert Trailer

    I guess they're taking a break from the important work of stopping people from saying dirty words.

    When the Olympus Has Fallen trailer aired last year, you were being subjected to dangerous desensitization to more than just crappy movies: Your innate ability to be mildly inconvenienced brought to a state of alert by the Emergency Alert System was damaged when networks aired the trailer.

  3. ESPN Hosts Hacking Competition for Women [Now Hear How This Makes Sense]

    The Future Is Now!

    ESPN, coding, and women aren't three things you'd expect to see in connection to each other, unless, perhaps, it was a statement about how the cultures of the first two aren't generally known for involving a lot of the latter, at least in participatory roles.

    You may remember that the Ole Miss Rebels are looking for a new on-field mascot. And the reason you might remember this may well be that for a while, one of the most widely-supported choices was none other than Star Wars’ Admiral Ackbar. Sadly, that ship has sailed (this lists the final five choices as “a land shark, a bear, a horse, a lion or two characters named Hotty and Toddy”), but now the Ackbar campaign lives on through what appears to be a universally-loved ESPN commercial from last night – and it’s not hard to see why. >>>Check it out at SportsGrid.
