Pete Buttigieg’s Lurch to the Center Reeks of Hypocrisy

Two months before officially announcing his presidential campaign, Pete Buttigieg appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, selling himself as a generational and transformational presence in national politics. Not only could Buttigieg, 37, drive turnout among millennials, still the Democratic party’s most untapped base of likely supporters, but the mayor of South Bend would bring a movement of cross-sectional voters along with him, too, refusing to kowtow to establishment fears while pushing for an aspirational brand of progressive populism. “I think today we’re negotiating the tensions between democracy and capitalism. I’m committed…

GE Pension Failure Could Send Investors into Arms of Bitcoin

General Electric (GE) has decided to freeze its pension plan, removing two of the key features that have come to be associated with retirement savings – secure and guaranteed – for tens of thousands of employees. GE isn’t the first company to pull the plug, but as one of the oldest traditional companies in corporate America, it sends a strong signal to employees that they can no longer bank on their employer for retirement benefits. Now, instead of shouldering the risk for employees, GE will essentially shift that risk back…

Can Daniel Jones Keep The Good Times Rolling, Make It Three In A Row?

Expectations were low for Daniel Jones when he took over the role of starting quarterback for the New York Giants in week three. All he had to do was play better than how Eli Manning had been playing—and he has. After two starts, he is 2-0, the Giants are 2-2, and they are only one game back in the NFC East. Does this mean it is safe to go ahead and get excited about the Giants? Some would say yes; many more would say no. But depending on how Sunday’s…

Andrew Yang Skateboards His Way Into Democrat Voters’ Hearts

2020 presidential candidate Andrew Yang just skateboarded his way into Democratic voters’ hearts. At a Yang 2020 rally in Las Vegas Wednesday, the New York businessman stoked the crowd with some gnarly moves on a supporter’s skateboard. The best part is supporters caught Yang thrashing wood on video. But that might be bad news for Democratic primary rival and fellow skater boy Beto O’Rourke. The rad video footage prompted Iowa Hawk Blog to tweet, “RIP Beto.” In the 1990s, Baby Boomers thought it was all that and a bag of…

Ubisoft’s Greed Makes Already-Broken Ghost Recon Breakpoint Bleed

The extent of the micro-transactions in Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint puts EA’s efforts to shame, and that is no small feat. They are everywhere, pervasive even, encompassing every aspect of the game, which in itself doesn’t offer players all that much to write home about in the first place other than a generic take on the tried-and-tested tactical shooter genre. Once again, publisher greed trumps gameplay considerations in what is among the most blatant examples of shameless interactive money-grabbing veiled as a video game. Ghost Recon Breakpoint’s TWO In-Game Currencies…
