Mazda Plans To Raise Prices In North America By As Much As $350 As Profits Sink

A confluence of factors including parts shortages and inflation are driving prices up across the automotive market. Now, after a very rough first quarter for Mazda in terms of operating profits, the Japanese brand is recognizing the opportunity to raise prices as demand for its products swells. Led by the all-new CX-50 here in America and the new CX-60 overseas, Mazda believes volume will increase for the full fiscal year.

Ben Stiller talks about Emmy-nominated ‘Severance,’ wanting to direct since age 10

Working a scene Tubsful of Hollywood actors turn into directors. Now Ben Stiller’s Apple TV+ thing is “Severance” with Patricia Arquette and Christopher Walken. It’s memories divided into work and home. Ben produces and directs. Ben: “The show jumped off the page and reminded me of great office-based comedies but in a surreal world. They’ve become a genre in American comedy over the last 20 years. “I’ve wanted to be a director since age 10. It’s what I love doing. It’s not having the pressure to be on camera. I’ve always loved Japanese food and the ‘Severance’ sushi connection is just there naturally. Maybe in Season 2...

A big omakase night out at Umami

Remember when a $20 hamburger or $100-a-person fine-dining experience seemed absurd? While it’s still worthy of an eyebrow raise, it’s not far-fetched or too exceptional. How about if I told you a $158 meal-for-one was a bargain? An omakase seating at Umami in North Cambridge is around that much during the week and slightly more on weekends; that may make your eyes bug out some, but compare it with a similar experience at renowned upscale sushi bar O Ya in Boston’s Leather District and you’ll see what I was coming to. For your hard-earned, special-evening-out dollars (and for me and an omakase-minded friend that I go with, that’s like once a year, or every other) you get an 18-course meal in which every dish is prepared before your eyes with an explanation of each course and where it came from, sea to seat. It’s a unique, personalized experience at an L-shaped bar with chefs toiling in plain sight while engaging with the audience – not quite the interaction of a Bisuteki, but let that give you a sense.

Dota: Dragon's Blood Book 3 Review: Despite Shortcomings, This Video Game Adaptation Is Full Of Existential Tension

"Dota: Dragon's Blood" didn't seem to rake significant traction upon its release. Yet another Netflix video game-adapted cartoon riding the fantasy adult animation steam trail left by the "Castlevania" animated adaptation, "Dota: Dragon's Blood" (created by Ashley Edward Miller) pitifully does not duel well against the agile contemporary canon of video game cartoons like the groundbreaking "Arcane." But although its shortcomings have been conspicuous, it isn't necessarily an undeserving production.
