A half-dozen years after launching Wikipedia Zero, The Wikimedia Foundation is sunsetting the program. Announced in 2012, it was the result of partnerships with mobile carriers, designed to waive the cost of accessing the free encyclopedia in developing countries, where data fees presented a barrier to accessing the site’s seemingly bottomless well of information. The Foundation says… Read More

Excited for Black Panther? So are we. Which is why we’re rolling out obsessive coverage with Black Panther Week.
Spoilers ahead for Black Panther.
Black Panther just pulled off a Marvel Cinematic Universe first: A supervillain worth rooting for.
Sure, other MCU baddies have been charming (hello, Hela) or surprising (hi, Mandarin) or sympathetic (we see you, Loki). A couple of them have even made good points – Zemo and Vulture’s grievances felt legitimate, even if their methods of rectifying them did not.
But Michael B. Jordan’s Killmonger is all of those things, and something more besides. It’s a truism that every villain sees themselves as the hero in their own story; Killmonger is the first time this has actually felt true in a MCU movie. Read more…

- Lindsey Vonn completed her first two training runs for the downhill event on Sunday and Monday at the Winter Olympics.
- After Vonn failed to medal in the Super-G, her training times suggest she will be in a good position to rebound in the downhill.
- Despite Vonn intentionally slowing herself down, she still “won” the first training run and finished third in the second.
- Vonn later admitted to playing mind games with her opponents.
Lindsey Vonn came up short in her first Olympics event, but early signs suggest that won’t happen in the ladies’ downhill event, despite her own attempts to hide how fast she was really going.
Towards the end of Vonn’s second training run on Monday, she came out of her crouch and raised her arms, slowing herself down before the finish line.See the rest of the story at Business Insider

In once sleepy Kadıköy-Moda, new nightlife and culture hotspots happily coexist with the district’s established restaurants and cafes
Until recently, the neighbourhood of Kadıköy-Moda, on the Asian side of Istanbul at the southern end of the Bosphorus, was an unremarkable, mostly residential place that barely registered on the city’s cultural map. Over the past few years, however, it has become an unlikely hotspot for cutting-edge bars, art and culture hubs, cafes and music venues, as well as a haven for plugged-in, liberal-minded people opposed to Turkey’s increasingly authoritarian political climate.

Pop star and Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie opened the NBA All-Star game with her rendition of the national anthem, and by goodness, it was an interesting rendition to say the least.
While other singers may have opted for a straight-up, no fuss performance; Fergie gave the anthem a jazzy twist, which is incredible in both its braveness and repugnance for the ear.

Throughout the performance, Fergie wildly shifts between different keys for some reason. Read more…
There’s a glut of devices out there designed to tell all sorts of things about your bodies, but few you’d want stuck to your body for very long.
Perhaps with that in mind, engineering researchers at the University of Tokyo and Dai Nippon Printing have developed an ultrathin display which sticks to skin.
It’s made up of a 16×24 array of micro LEDs, stretchable wiring, all mounted onto a rubber sheet. Researchers say the display will last on your skin for a week without causing inflammation.
Of course, it isn’t the first stretchable display around. What researchers say makes this different is its durability on skin, claiming it can be expanded up to 45 percent more than its original length. Read more…
