Netflix CEO: Broadcast TV Will Be Dead By 2030

Netflix CEO: Broadcast TV Will Be Dead By 2030 Nielsen Ratings are going to finally factor in Netflix traffic. Reed Hastings thinks it’s too little, too late. If you checked Nielsen Ratings, you’d think that the only people watching TV were age 54 and older (and you’d be right), and that Millennials are a black hole of immeasurable Internet content consumption—that is, until Nielsen starts measuring Netflix traffic next month. But what does Netflix CEO Reed Hastings think about Nielsen’s bold step forward? Meh. Earlier this week, in Mexico City, he said that it’s “not very relevant” either way, according… View Article

The beginning of the end for Nancy Pelosi?

The beginning of the end for Nancy Pelosi? No one in Washington much cares what House Democrats do these days. House rules tend to ensure that the main job of members of the minority is to show up, vote “no” and lose. And in the next Congress, Democrats will have fewer House seats than they’ve had since 1930. So not much notice was directed last week at Nancy Pelosi’s first major intraparty defeat since she became House Democratic leader in 2003. Pelosi won that post by defeating colleague Steny Hoyer and has been winning fights ever since. Until now. That… View Article

Cocoa flavanols reduce memory loss from aging, study shows

Cocoa flavanols reduce memory loss from aging, study shows Antioxidant flavanols naturally found in cocoa may be able to reverse some age-related memory loss, according to a study published in the journal Nature Neuroscience. The study was conducted by researchers from Columbia University, New York University and Mars, Inc. Previous research by scientists including Dr. Scott A. Small, MD, senior author of the new study, has shown that age-related memory loss is associated with changes that take place in the dentate gyrus, a region of the brain located within the hippocampus. Notably, early-stage Alzheimer’s disease is believed to affect a… View Article

Three amazing herbs for a clear and healthy complexion

Three amazing herbs for a clear and healthy complexion The skin is the body’s largest organ. It’s constantly eliminating toxins via perspiration through every single pore on the body. Every now and then, the burden of removing toxins can become too much for the skin, and trouble manifests itself in the form of pimples, acne, discolorations and other skin issues. Most individuals turn to makeup to cover up the unsightly marks, but sometimes that only worsens the issue. Others pick at the problem to see if they can make it go away; this never works and it only serves to… View Article

FBI Report Accidentally Exposes the Severity of the Police State

FBI Report Accidentally Exposes the Severity of the Police State A recently published FBI report accidentally proves that while the police claim cops face growing threats from rowdy populations like in Ferguson–the opposite is true. The report presents law enforcement deaths in 2013. The report found that across the entire country, only 76 LEOs were killed in “line-of-duty” incidents. 27 died as a result of “felonious” acts and 49 officers died in accidents namely, automobile (ironically, of the 23 killed in car accidents, 14 were not wearing seat belts–a violation for which cops routinely ticket drivers). More officers die from… View Article

This trend is especially pronounced… View Article

Class-action suits to go ahead against Bell, Telus over minutes

Class-action suits to go ahead against Bell, Telus over minutes A judge has given the green light to class-action lawsuits against telecom companies Bell and Telus over the practice of rounding up minutes. A call lasting one minute and one second, for example, would be billed as two minutes, thereby depleting talk time faster for millions of Canadians, who would then incur per-minute charges at a higher rate, the suits allege. They also allege the practice began in mid-2002 but was not disclosed by either telecom. “Cellphone users were unwittingly charged excessive and unjustified fees in breach of the express… View Article

Conviction would be roadblock for Jian Ghomeshi in U.S.

Conviction would be roadblock for Jian Ghomeshi in U.S. Former CBC host Jian Ghomeshi’s future career could hit a major roadblock south of the border if he’s convicted, a criminal law specialist said Thursday. “A criminal conviction for an offence such as sexual assault will cause him to have problems to travel into the U.S. for years after his sentence is served,” defence lawyer Daniel Brown said. “Typically, a sexual conviction can render you inadmissible to the U.S. unless you get special permission or a waiver to enter the U.S. “The notion he can just pick up and leave for… View Article
