Tina Fey eats a cake for America on SNL’s ‘Weekend Update: Summer Edition’


Tina Fey didn’t like seeing racists march through her college town. 

“It broke my heart to see these evil forces descend upon Charlottesville,” the University of Virginia graduate told Colin Jost on Weekend Update: Summer Edition.

Then she laid into Donald Trump. 

“Donny John comes out and he says that he condemns violence on many sides, on many sides, Colin. I’m feeling sick because, you know, I have seen Raiders of the Lost Ark. I wasn’t confused by it. No, Colin, Nazis are always bad, I don’t care what you say.”

When talking about a planned alt-right rally on Saturday in New York City, she settled on a desert-based method of protesting. Read more…

How To Budget For A Family In Hong Kong

First-time Parenting: Creating a Family Budget Plan in Hong Kong Learning how to budget for a family in Hong Kong is an important step to ensure that you can survive in this expensive city. According to the survey conducted by Mercer, a human resource firm in New York, Hong Kong landed second to the most expensive urban centres in the world. This data was actually intended for expats planning to live in Hong Kong. While they have a choice whether they want to live in this expensive city or not, the local residents of Hong Kong have to deal with the harsh reality of this city’s cost of living.   Usually, expensive cities justify the cost of living with high wages. But then again, how do the wages fare in Hong Kong? According to the data published by the South China Morning Post, fresh graduates are given HK$10,860 as their first salary. Do you think that is enough for you to live by?   Obviously, when you reach the point when you have to budget for a family, you should have gone through a couple of salary increases. Let us say that you are already earning HK$20,000 when you decided

★★★★ A woman in a bikini didn’t wait for the morning sun to reach the couches or lounges on her building’s roofdeck, but sat up in a straight chair on the side walkway where the rays were already shining. The light was clear and the air had dried. Thin clouds showed up to mitigate the […]


Leaked images might show the iPhone 8’s wireless charging setup


This year’s upcoming iPhone 8 product line is widely expected to be Apple’s first generation of smartphones to feature wireless charging capabilities, finally freeing up iOS users from their Lightning cords — and we might just have gotten a good look at what the accessories that will provide that power might look like.    

New images that allegedly show off some of Apple’s charging pad’s internal components popped up online, giving us a peek what could possibly be coming later this year when the company is expected to unveil three new glass-backed phones — the premium iPhone 8, the iPhone 7S, and 7S Plus — that offer inductive charging using the Qi standard. That means that the phones will only charge when they’re actually touching the surface of a specialized charging pad.  Read more…

One Art Lover’s Crusade To Catalog The World

If you’re a famous dead artist, nothing welcomes you to the canon quite like someone sitting down and meticulously recording every piece of art you ever made. These records become a compendium, often several volumes long, called a catalogue raisonné. Such a catalog can itself represent the life’s work of the scholar who compiles it. […]


How to Make It in Theater: A Quick Guide By the ‘West Side Story’ Cast

Somewhere in the back of my mind, there’s a child’s dream to be onstage. Growing up seeing Lea Salonga and Monique Wilson make it big here and abroad, theater acting seemed alluring.

Want To Buy A Car In Hong Kong? Answer These Two Questions First

Do you have plans to buy a car in Hong Kong? Some people may feel the need for it.   The truth is, you can easily get around through the public transportation system – which is actually one of the safest and most efficient in the world. You have a lot of options from taxis, rail, bus, or tram. You can even use the ferry to get to the different islands around Hong Kong. Thanks to the Octopus Card, you can choose to ride any of these without difficulty.   While the public transport may be the best in the world, having your own car is still quite convenient – especially when you have a child. You can choose to go anywhere you want and no rain or other weather disturbances will make it hard for you to get to your destination.   This is probably the sentiment of the car owners in Hong Kong. According to the data from the Transport Department, the number of new registrations in the region is steadily growing from 2011 to 2015. For the first quarter of 2016, it is slowing a bit and in some months, the new registrations are lower than the

We’re Okay Now (I Think)

I spent two weeks without any alcohol—and my head stopped hurting in the morning and I didn’t throw up in any kitchen sinks and I didn’t have to make any phone calls to apologize and I didn’t eat a spring roll while sitting on the floor of my shower and I didn’t ever at all think it was an appropriate idea to FaceTime the guy I used to like three times at 3:34AM. I just felt fine.


‘Game of Thrones’ is proving itself to be leak-proof


What is dead may never die — and what is Game of Thrones will never be defeated by leaks.

It’s been a rough ride for HBO recently. Like a White House administration that cannot stop leaking out of its “whatever,” the prestige TV mogul can’t seem to seal its faulty pipes. Yet somehow its most popular show stared those instruments of potentially devastating audience dropout and taunted: “What do we say to the god of death? Not. Today.”

Two weeks ago, hackers spoiled “The Spoils of War” by releasing one of Season 7’s most epic episodes a full two days before its official release. We urged true fans to wait until Sunday night to watch the dragonfire unleash — for their own good. Read more…

New York City, August 15, 2017

★★ What the morning lacked in brightness it made up for by the intensity of the smells on the damp air. A light but increasing rain fell on the short, straight-line walk to get lunch, a rain unimportant enough for umbrellas to be effective against it. There was no going out afterward; the rain got […]


All the people (and things) Trump actually thinks are racist


President Donald Trump has had an especially hard time convincing Americans he’s not racist this week.

What with blaming “many sides” and the “alt-left” after this weekend’s deadly violence in Charlottesville — despite white supremacists and neo-Nazis being at the heart of the protests against the removal of a Confederate statue — he’s making it pretty hard to believe otherwise. 

Trump received a great deal of backlash for refusing to directly condemn white supremacists, the KKK, and neo-Nazis until Monday, and that statement was undermined by his off-the-rails press conference a day later that once again blamed “both sides,” emboldening the KKK and white supremacists.  Read more…

Why Apple’s not going to sell an OLED TV


It’s no secret Apple really, really wants to reinvent the TV. On his deathbed, Steve Jobs expressed great interest in fixing the crummy TV watching experience, telling his biographer Walter Isaacson that he had “finally cracked it.”

Jobs said he wanted to create an “integrated television set that is completely easy to use” and “would be seamlessly synced with all of your devices and with iCloud.”

In 2014, leakers and analysts repeatedly said Apple would release its own TV set, which many speculated could have been powered by Siri. No such Apple-branded TV was ever released and many believe Apple shelved it. Read more…

Not-so-sneaky kid tries to get past dad’s security cam


One kid was practicing his secret agent skills to get past his dad’s security camera, and it didn’t really work out.

In a YouTube video posted by Jeremy Gabrysch, Gabrysch wrote that his elementary school-aged kids had been coming down “to party” in the middle of the night. 

The dad happened to bust the kids each time, but they didn’t know how. After spotting that there was a security camera hidden in the living room, the son decided to take matters into his own hands and tried to disable it by slithering on the floor so he’d go unseen. 

Unfortunately for him, he was definitely caught on camera trying his luck. Maybe next time the kids should just enjoy their parties in the daytime when it’s safe.   Read more…
