It’s time to admit it: Prestige television is largely mediocre . It seems good while you’re watching it, but it’s smoke and mirrors—big-name streamers pour millions into new shows, causing style to be mistaken for substance. When you look back months later at a show you thought you enjoyed, can you still name more than three things you loved? Can you ascertain one reason you kept watching, other than, “Eh, I guess since I started it I should see what happens”? A League of Their Own is, remarkably, the antithesis of this “golden age” of televised deception. Remakes aren’t supposed to be good anymore. Ask the 47,000 think pieces about it that have been written in the last 10 years. Admittedly, Hollywood is devoid of new ideas, and would rather guarantee a return on their investments by frankensteining an old project with nothing new to say. But this new series is so surprisingly, refreshingly good. Amazon Prime’s serialized reboot of the beloved 1992 film about the … [Read more...] about The New ‘A League of Their Own’ Is the Rare Home-Run Reboot

WASHINGTON (AP) — Whether it's the fitness tracker on your wrist, the “smart” home appliances in your house or the latest kids’ fad going viral in online videos, they all produce a trove of personal data for big tech companies. How that data is being used and protected has led to growing public concern and officials’ outrage. And now federal regulators are looking at drafting rules to crack down on what they call harmful commercial surveillance and lax data security. The Federal Trade Commission announced the initiative Thursday, seeking public comment on the effects of companies’ data collection and the potential benefit of new rules to protect consumers’ privacy. The FTC defines commercial surveillance as “the business of collecting, analyzing and profiting from information about people.” In Congress, bipartisan condemnation of the data power of Meta — the parent of Facebook and Instagram — Google and other tech giants that have earned riches by aggregating consumer … [Read more...] about FTC looking at rules to corral tech firms’ data collection
THORNTON — After nearly 20 years of code violations, health orders, lawsuits and neighbor complaints, a dilapidated and forlorn shopping center that once gleamed with American mid-century suburban promise just took a critical step toward a long-awaited makeover. But it took the strong arm of the government — through an eminent domain action filed in court on Aug. 1 — to finally move the long-stalled transformation of the Thornton Shopping Center along. A judge could authorize the city to take possession of the strip mall, built in 1955 and beset with contamination issues that will cost millions to remedy , as soon as October. Chad Howell, redevelopment administrator for Thornton, said the city did everything it could over the years to “sweeten the pot” with various developers to prod them to take over the site, which could cost upwards of $10 million to fully clean up. “No matter how they sliced this project, they couldn’t put together a project pro forma that they could make … [Read more...] about Is eminent domain the best way for Thornton to clean up a crumbling, contaminated shopping center?
