Today at New York Comic Con, the stars of DC’s Stargirl joined creator/executive producer Geoff Johns to recap Season 1 and tease what’s to come in Season 2.
During the virtual panel with actors Brec Bassinger, Yvette Monreal, Anjelika Washington, Cameron Gellman and Meg DeLacy, Johns said that we can expect “a lot of bad guys, and a lot of bad things happening” in the series’ second run. “Everyone’s got a great journey ahead in Stargirl Season 2,” he added. “We broke the season a long time ago, but [we’ve now] broken the season even deeper.”
One of the main antagonists set to clash with Stargirl’s Justice Society of America in Season 2 is Eclipso, a life essence trapped inside a blue diamond. Once owned by the Injustice Society of America, that diamond was stolen in Season 1 by DeLacy’s Cindy, which will result in problems for the JSA going
Set in 1995, with the OJ Simpson trial as a backdrop, John Vercher’s debut novel Three-Fifths is a deft, multifaceted exploration of racism in America. The trial, just at it was in real life, becomes less about the case itself – the murder of Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman – and more about the great racial divide that is still patently an issue in America today.
One memorable description from a black character in the novel outlines the way in which white America is against OJ because they can’t stand a black man who is wealthy and successful. Former Miss America Vanessa Williams is also mentioned in a flashback scene. The first black woman to win the pageant, in 1983, Williams lost the title later that year when unauthorised nude photographs of
Stimulus checks and enhanced unemployment benefits that helped the poorest Americans weather the coronavirus pandemic are in danger of ending, throwing the finances of the most economically vulnerable into a tailspin.
The Federal Reserve’s “Update on the Economic Well-Being of U.S. Households,” a highly watched annual report that has been expanded this year to reflect the coronavirus pandemic, showed that government measures have helped low and middle-income families boost savings.
To that point, in July, 48% of families making less than $40,000 annually said they’d cover a $400 emergency expense with cash or an equivalent, up from 39% in October 2019, according to the most recent supplemental survey updated Sept. 22 by the Fed.
Americans deserve privacy online. Currently, Big Tech siphons the data of millions of Americans every minute and sells and resells that data for billions of dollars. Most of us never see a dime from any of that. It’s time to put control of data and privacy rights back where it belongs: with ordinary Americans like you and me.
That is why I support Proposition 24, the California Privacy Rights Act. This initiative builds on the foundation of California’s landmark privacy law, passed by the Legislature in 2018, and will provide even greater data control and privacy protection to Californians if it passes. It includes strong measures, such as the creation of a new consumer protection agency to be a watchdog over big tech, and expands on the tools Californians have when companies misuse their data under the law.
Prop. 24 puts money back where it belongs — in the hands

We are going through times, which seem, unlike any others, in recent memory! Instead of any coherent, real attempt, at bringing us, together, for the greater good, it seems, we are observing, the politics of division, and polarization! Unless/ until, our nation’s priorities, emphasize creating about, a meeting – of – the – minds, instead of the overwhelming degree of partisan politics, we will all, be losers, in the long – run! President Trump’s emphasis, on, America – first, and Make America Great Again, while opposing the ethnic diversity, which has distinguished our history, and existence, combined with his anti – women’s rights, rhetoric, steps to minimize consumer protections, environmental protections, etc, are dangerous, both, at present, and in terms of creating a sustainable future! Abandoning traditional allies, and, aligning with certain autocrats, and dictators, is certainly, a focus, unforeseen by our Founding Fathers. With that in mind, this article … Read More
