The Brothers Tsarnaev, English Racists, and Ted Koppel

How Ted Koppel and ABC TV Tried to Steal My Life WorkNate Thayer
“I am banned by legal agreement to write the following: ABC Television/ Disney Corporation, after seven years in court, where they attempted to bankrupt me and ruin my reputation for objecting to them stealing fifteen years of my life work, buckled and paid me. They have the legal right to take back the money they finally paid me–which actually all went to lawyers and taxes–if I open my mouth. Fuck them.”

What is it Like Working For Extremely Wealthy People?Slate
“For a number of years, I worked as a wealth management adviser. Financial services is the “concierge of money” for the plutocrat class.

“Have you ever spiraled down into a disused tube station, feared for your well-being during an exhilarating ride on the backseat of a Vietnamese motorcycle or scaled a derelict chimney in London? Have you ever wandered through the perpetual flow of humans in an early-morning Mumbai market, felt the chaos resolve itself around you as dusk falls and lanterns alight in Kyoto, or found yourself wonderfully lost whilst meandering down a charming Milanese side-street?”

No Girls AllowedPolygon
“The stereotype, for example, does not explain why “girls don’t play video games.” It does not reveal who or what is responsible for it. It does not explain how an industry that started with games like Pong (1972) or the first computer version of Tic-Tac-Toe (1959) came to be responsible for a medium that, for most of its history, hasn’t had even an aisle’s worth of games for Maida.”
