A Controversial Milla Jovovich Movie Is Finding New Life On Streaming

If you see Paul W.S. Anderson and Milla Jovovich‘s names attached to a project in tandem, you’ve got a pretty good idea of what’s in store. Chances are very high that it’ll be an effects-driven fantasy movie with a heavy action element, almost certainly adapted from a pre-existing property of some description.

Gordon Monson: Great promise cuts through a dark cloud hanging over BYU football

Everybody talks about that one game. But there’s more. A lot more. The one, though, from two years ago, came when Baylor Romney got his first college start at BYU and beat highly-ranked Boise State, completing 15 of 26 passes for 221 yards and two touchdowns.

Fighting questions from within at Facebook

The smartest insight and analysis, from all perspectives, rounded up from around the web:. Over and over, Facebook has been made aware of the harmful effects of its platform yet done nothing to address them, said The Wall Street Journal in a multipart series called "The Facebook Files." Very often, Facebook's own internal research teams reported on the problems plaguing the 3 billion–user social network, only to either suppress the data or ignore it.

But there have been times even the man in charge "couldn't steer the platform as he wanted." Zuckerberg — who donated $3 billion toward disease-fighting research in 2016 — announced an ambitious effort in March to promote COVID-19 vaccination. But despite his best intentions, the comments on science-based stories were swarmed by anti-vaccine activists and COVID deniers. The company has been "playing catch-up for months."

“I’ve always assumed my responsibilities and I’ve always embraced them under pressure in moments like this. Today, I’ve failed.”.

Texas Rangers cap off one of the franchise’s worst road seasons with win over Baltimore Orioles

BALTIMORE — With apologies to the great Texas troubadour, Robert Earl Keen, the road has gone on forever for the Rangers. Only the losing never seems to end. The Rangers did actually win Sunday, finishing off the road schedule with a 7-4 win over dreadful Baltimore. It forestalled a 100th loss for another day. Well, at least two, since the Rangers don’t play again until Tuesday when they start the season’s final homestand in Arlington.
