Star Trek Fan Film Lawsuit Settled

quote [ The Star Trek fan film Axanar is moving forward again. Axanar Productions raised $1 million via crowdsourcing to produce a feature-length fan film with production values beyond your typical fan project. After the movie had started shooting, CBS and Paramount filed a lawsuit, claiming the fan film violates the rights of their intellectual property. Despite directors J.J. Abrams and Justin Lin urging the studio to drop the lawsuit, it continued, but it’s now settled. ]

quote [ Like many fields of work, the drag racing scene was and is fairly well dominated by men. During its heyday, specifically the mid-1960s through the early 1970s, the National Hot Rod Association incorporated the use of gorgeous women/models to help appeal to the fanboys. ]

London Necropolis Railway: The Train For The Dead

quote [ It was a difficult time to be alive in 1848 London, and worse still to be dead. A cholera epidemic had just swept through the city killing nearly 15,000 of its inhabitants, and bodies were literally pilling up besides churches waiting to be buried. But there was one problem: there was no space to bury. ]

Healthcare without Planned Parenthood: Wisconsin and Texas point to dark future

quote [ In the remote western plains of Texas, the Midland-Odessa region is separated from the nearest major city by hours of open road. So when the Planned Parenthood clinic in Midland closed down in late 2013 – a casualty of legislative cuts that targeted Planned Parenthood directly – it served as an isolated experiment in what happens when the government defunds the largest women’s healthcare provider around. ]

Subversive Sounds: The Straight Men Who Made America's First Gay Record

quote [ When “Love Is a Drag” hit record-store shelves in 1962, it was decidedly not a sensation. Only a few shops carried the album, which featured jazz standards performed by an anonymous singer and band, and its label flopped shortly after the release. But beneath this mundane veneer, the record’s content was remarkably provocative, becoming the first major release to feature a male singer crooning love songs about other men. ]
