Arizona Republicans are blocking Democrats' efforts to repeal the Civil War-era abortion law that is now in effect in the state.

Shortly before the Republicans on Arizona's supreme court upheld the 1864 law, a group of Republican state senators gathered on the floor holding what looks like a gibbering seance, praying that gawd would allow them to force children to carry rapist pregnancies.

Please spread this clip. This is the true face of the Republican party.

I finished #3BodyProblem last night. It's dogshit. 0/10 I hate it. If you're a fan of the books watch #ThreeBody on Prime instead. It's a very good representation of the books. If you just like random Game of Thrones actors doing their best with a god awful script that is tangentially related to the books, I guess sure check out 3BP, I'm not your dad.

I've been very critical of the anti-Biden Leftists, but it does appear that maybe I need to eat crow. They may have actually applied enough pressure to stop the genocide. Granted if they still protest vote and Trump wins it won't have matterered, but I'll tip my cap right now if it saves Palestinian lives. 🫡

@russellt if even Nancy Pelosi is joining in that tells me what way the winds are blowing. She wouldn't put her name on it if she didn't know it was ultimately the winning message. This IMO is much more significant than Biden's "ultimatum" to Bibi.

Unfortunately I think Israel may be so filled with bloodlust and so close to their ultimate goal, it may not matter. But I'm more hopeful today than I have been in 6 months, so I'll take it!

America's first sustainable urban agrihood in Detroit.
"The three-acre development has vacant land, along with occupied and abandoned homes centered around a two-acre urban garden, with more than 300 organic vegetable varieties, like lettuce, kale, and carrots, as well as a 200-tree fruit orchard, with apples, pears, plums, and cherries, a children’s sensory garden, and more."

Zoinks! Digital Trends has compiled a list of 10 TV shows that they say are overrated, from "Parks and Recreation" ("overly hopeful") to "The Bear" ("a great dramedy, but award shows and audiences keep treating it as Christ’s second coming, which it most certainly isn’t."). Here's the full list. We want to know: Which of these do you think are overhyped, or just don't stand the test of time (choose as many as you like)? Tell us in the comments if there's another show that's critically adored but that you just can't see the appeal of.

Blockades of military bases in #California continues in solidarity with #Palestine. This recent action was met with police brutality.

"During these arrests they violently attacked several femmes, and threw several to the ground. Of those attacked, one was knocked unconscious from the force of the police assault. Another who had arrived with a walker due to hip injuries, was thrown to the ground and hospitalized. Immediately after the arrests were made police moved to try and arrest protesters who had never entered the street, but they were stopped by other police. "

Imagine witnessing an overdose and being save somebody with the help of a drone.

“Via a video playing on a screen carried by the drone, the bystander received instructions on how to use the naloxone, which is administered as a nasal spray. We timed each participant on how long it took them to correctly give the medication during this crisis moment.

Average time for someone to view the video and administer the medication: 62 seconds.
Pretty remarkable.

Let's be clear on what it means that a famine in the technical sense is imminent for 1.1 million people in Gaza according to the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC).

One of the criteria is 2 deaths per 10,000 people from outright starvation or the interaction of malnutrition and disease... PER DAY.

The people who understand this stuff are saying that a situation is imminent where there are AT LEAST 200 starvation deaths every day.

UN expert: Israel is engineering famine in Gaza

UN Special Rapporteur Michael Fakhri says Israel’s intentional starvation of Gaza is unprecedented. “We’ve never seen a civilian population made to go hungry so completely and so quickly,” he tells Mondoweiss. “Never in modern history.”

John Williams is among 19 new members of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. The 92-year-old composer has won five of the 53 Oscars he was nominated for, and also conducted the Boston Pops for more than a decade and has composed classical concertos. Here's a story from ABC on Williams and the other 18 inductees to the Academy of Arts this year, which included composer Terence Blanchard, novelist Alice McDermott and artist Matthew Barney. We want to know, which is your favorite of these (some answers are movies and others are franchises where more appropriate).

Rockstar Games has asked its staff to return to the office five days a week, starting in April. The Edinburgh-based company says this relates to completing development on GTA 6 “at the level of quality and polish we know it requires,” and to mitigate security breaches. GTA 6, which is not due to ship until 2025, experienced leaks in September 2022 and December 2023. IGN reports that Rockstar developers are accusing the company of "broken promises," and are concerned about crunch as well as overall impacts to health and wellbeing.
