Thirty-five thoughts on the Patriots’ 35-14 victory over the Giants … 1. I suppose a game in which you win by 21 points and still come away annoyed at how it played out is a sign that you have a very good football team. And the Patriots, now 6-0, do. The defense is spectacular, their special teams put points on the board when the offense was struggling to do it, and Tom Brady and Julian Edelman – with help from unexpected places – finally found their mojo in the second half. 2. But man, that was an annoying game for a long time. Frustrating. Briefly worrisome. The Giants were without arguably their three best offensive players, Daniel Jones (15 of 31, 161 yards, one TD, three interceptions) looked like a bewildered rookie, and yet the Giants – a team the Patriots always want to maul under any circumstances – managed to hang around even into the fourth quarter. 3. The Patriots were so disjointed in the first half that one couldn’t help but … [Read more...] about 35 thoughts on the Patriots’ disjointed win over the Giants

Tali Arbel Associated Press Published 11:48 AM EDT Sep 23, 2019 New York – It’s a 21st century space race: Amazon, SpaceX and others are competing to get into orbit and provide internet to the earth’s most remote places. And like the last century’s battle for space supremacy that was triggered by the Soviet Union’s launch of Sputnik 1, this one involves satellites. Thousands of them. More than a dozen companies have asked U.S. regulators for permission to operate constellations of satellites that provide internet service. Not all are aimed at connecting consumers, but some have grand and global ambitions. “The goal here is broadband everywhere,” Amazon founder Jeff Bezos said at a conference in June. With half the world’s population – more than 3 billion people – not using the internet , it’s a huge potential market. And there’s the obvious benefit on the ground: Not having internet access makes it difficult … [Read more...] about Can a new space race connect the world to the internet?
Illustration by Trịnh Lập By An Phương “Not everyone is an artist, but everyone is a critic.” I reblog this quote or ones with a similar meaning to my personal Tumblr account every time I feel attacked by a random Internet fellow.

Of course, I’m not here praising Tumblr for being a healthy platform but discussing one of the most relevant topics of today’s society, “criticism culture”. With the introduction of the Internet, followed by “keyboard warriors”, defined as those who behave aggressively online but are too shy to do the same face-to-face, criticism culture seems to be a predictable result. “I’m familiar with the concept of keyboard warrior. In fact, I was once a serious 'warrior' defending my K-pop … [Read more...] about What’s wrong with the internet’s criticism culture?
