the future of the NEWSrickmc

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 11:04:41 +0000

What will the most popular news sources of the future look like? I’m hopeful for the soon to be launched Wikitribune. Evidence-based journalism People today mostly get their news from TV (not bad) and social media (terrible). My favourite news source right now is Axios, just 6 months old. Smart brevity. Axios covers 7 areas: politics, tech, … Continue reading the future of the NEWS(image)

“… aspartame has been approved for human consumption by regulatory agencies in more than 100 countries and received wide consumer acceptance with consumption by hundreds of millions of people over the past 20 years, representing billions of man-years of safe exposure.”  No, Dumbass.

And Chris Sullivan as Toby, her boyfriend. 37% of Americans are currently obese (50% obese by 2020). 34% more are currently overweight.
