Section 230 Ends Demonetized YouTuber’s Lawsuit–Lewis v. Google

Lewis ran a YouTube channel called “Misandry Today.” Misandry is hatred of men, like misogyny but with reversed genders. I didn’t look at Lewis’ content but I worry that its examples of alleged misandry actually might be presented to advance a misogynistic narrative. Whatever the case, YouTube demonetized, restricted, or removed some of his videos. He sued YouTube for: violating the First Amendment national origin discrimination (allegedly, YouTube acted because he “is a patriotic American citi...

Skill Will Be On Display In The Return To Play Stanley Cup Playoffs

from Mike Chambers of the Denver Post, Winning the Stanley Cup usually takes equal parts will and skill. It takes 16 victories to hoist the Cup, and normally teams are banged up heading into the tournament grind. While the reformated, 24-team 2020 playoffs might lead to more games played by the champion, each team will enter the fray at nearly 100% health due to the season being shuttered due to the coronavirus pandemic.  So, from the outset of this unusual proposed summer series, it ...

Protesters return to the streets as Trump decries ‘lowlifes’

By ZEKE MILLER and TIM SULLIVAN, ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — Undeterred by curfews, protesters streamed back into the nation’s streets Tuesday, hours after President Donald Trump pressed governors to put down the violence set off by George Floyd’s death and demanded that New York call up the National Guard to stop the “lowlifes and losers.” But most protests passed peacefully, and while there were scattered reports of looting in New York City, the country appeared calmer by late Tuesday than i...

Allosaurus dabbled in cannibalism according to new fossil evidence

Rare fossil evidence of dinosaur cannibalism among the Allosaurus has been discovered. Scientists analyzed dinosaur bones found in the Mygatt-Moore Quarry in western Colorado, paying special attention to bite marks that were present on 2,368 of the bones. It's likely that the predatory carnivore only ate their already-dead peers during times when resources were scarce. Rare fossil evidence of dinosaur cannibalism has been discovered by paleontologists in a large quarry near the Utah-Colorado ...

Types of American cheese to try

American cheese is more often the butt of the joke than the centerpiece of a cheeseboard. It conjures thoughts of yellow squares in flimsy plastic — great for burgers and melting on sandwiches like grilled cheeses and tuna melts, terrible for nearly anything else. Instead, people in the United States often defer to European cheesemakers in France, Italy, Switzerland, and Ireland for the fancy stuff. While those imported cheeses have an admirable reputation, homegrown American cheese deserves ...
