Hello, unicorns! How are we doing this week, in this world without David Bowie? Let’s catch up on some of this week’s interesting news stories…
Greetings, unicorns, and Happy Friday. This week’s news updates are a little more entertainment-heavy at the end, but first let’s get to this week’s politics and other newsy items:
So much has happened this week, primarily centering around one story: Race in America. We started out with the ridiculousness that is Rachel Dolezal and ended with the tragic church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina. Let’s get started.
Greetings, all. We have some notable deaths to cover, some interesting entertainment news, and more, so let’s get started:
Happy Friday and Happy Halloween, everyone! If you’re celebrating the holiday today, whether at a party or with your munchkins, I hope you have a fun time. We’ve got a lot of science-y links to cap off the week, as well as the usual mixed bag of things I found interesting. Let’s get to it.

We were all holding out the new Doctor would be something different other than a white male. Internet casting had the front runners of Idris Elba, Dame Helen Mirren, and Chiwetel Eljiofor as the three in the lead of dream casting. People were demanding a POC or a woman as the new Doctor. No one believed those three would actually get the role but was more of an outline to what fans wanted. Sadly Moffat gave us another white man in the string of Doctors.

I’ve been waiting for Prime Suspect to turn up on Netflix Instant for… oh, as long as I’ve had a subscription. I love Helen Mirren. How can you not love Helen Mirren, really?
