    Avatar: The Last Airbender creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko are no longer working on the live-action series adaptation set for Netflix. The creators announced their departure on Wednesday, sparking concern among fans. DiMartino’s lengthy blog post only confirmed those concerns, as the writer and executive producer noted that “whatever version ends up on-screen, it will not be what Bryan and I had envisioned or intended to make.” Both DiMartino and Konietzko cited creative differences with Netflix over the direction of the project. The news may have come as a shock to Avatar fans, considering that when Netflix announced the project in 2018, both DiMartino and Konietzko’s involvement was heavily promoted. “When Bryan and I signed on...

    I was raised in the Episcopalian church, the American variation of the Church of England, or Anglicanism. It used to be illegal to hold office in England if you believed in transubstantiation. Personally, I prefer to keep religion out of politics, and that goes double for theology, but I’ll note that one of the main appeals of settling in the New World was to get away from governments that dictated what you could and could not believe. That process wasn’t really complete in America until we had to pull all the colonies together into one cohesive unit. It was only then that we banned religious tests, and we originally only banned religious tests for federal offices. Today, you can believe that...

    On Saturday, The Guardian profiled The Lincoln Project — the group of disaffected Republican strategists who have turned against their former party and are releasing a string of needling ads attacking President Donald Trump. “In their launch manifesto, published as a column in the New York Times, the founders said their goal was ‘defeating President Trump and Trumpism at the ballot box’, including his Republican supporters in Congress,” reported Richard Wolffe. “To that end, they said their efforts were about “persuading enough disaffected conservatives, Republicans and Republican-leaning independents in swing states and districts” to defeat Trump and elect congressional majorities opposed to Trumpism.” According to executive director Sarah Lenti, one of the ways this is accomplished is by sharing testimonials from anti-Trump Republicans up and...

(RELATED: Trump Explains Tweet Suggesting Election Delay, Says He Doesn’t Want Date Change.) “I actually think that a lot of the policies they are proposing have very little to do with responding to the pandemic and everything to do with trying to accomplish a long-held dream that they have had to fundamentally reshape our elections,” Snead said.

    What if scientists could harness the extraordinarily powerful process that fuels the sun to generate clean energy here on Earth? In a potentially historic milestone, they are taking a step towards just such a future today. At a ceremony Tuesday morning in southern France, a 35-country consortium officially began the assembly phase of a megaproject known as ITER — the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor. Once assembly is complete, about four and a half years from now, it will be the world's first industrial-scale fusion device. If successful, it promises to pave the way for virtually limitless, waste-free energy.  Fusion is the process that powers stars like the sun, which can be thought of as a gigantic fusion reactor.

    HYDE PARK — In the months before the coronavirus pandemic, Hyde Park Refugee Project organizers planned to help a family resettle on the South Side through partner agency RefugeeOne. That all changed when the pandemic hit and “resettlement [was] completely closed down by the government,” said Lisa Jenschke, one of the project’s three co-directors. As a result, Jenschke and other project leaders shifted their focus to “the families we already work with and the needs they were going to have” as a result of coronavirus. The project has paid out $11,025 to the families it supports since April. “One family basically has had no income the entire time; as soon as the restaurants closed down, that was it,” Jenschke said....
    Knitting is notoriously hard to depict accurately in media. I get it. It can be confusing for the uninitiated — it’s all fiber! — but once you know, you know. Knitting is a craft that’s been represented onscreen in media since silent films, but ever since I started knitting, I can’t help but notice that lots of media just straight up gets it wrong. (Ahem, this Quilted Northern commercial … you can’t knit a quilt or quilted toilet paper!!) For someone who’s been knitting for years, it’s just a matter of simple mechanics, creating loops out of yarn and moving those loops back and forth between two needles. This creates a basic, flat stitch pattern, different than if you were...
    A couple of erstwhile Republican operatives who notably failed to elect GOP presidents are now trying to elect a Democratic one. They call their super PAC, self-importantly, the Lincoln Project. The operation is devoted to churning out harsh, often ridiculously over-the-top ads attacking President Trump. The media and progressives on Twitter — the Lincoln Project’s real political base — inevitably praise the ads. The project’s operatives tend to this constituency with a slavish devotion, catering to its longstanding hatreds and its momentary passions. They know that without cable- TV mentions and Twitter buzz, the Lincoln Project — which doesn’t spend much on actually broadcasting its much-vaunted ads — would be a complete irrelevance. So far they have proved more adept...

    Sen. Tom Cotton is facing pushback following comments he made about the history of slavery in the United States. However, the Arkansas Republican says his critics are taking the remarks out of context.

    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) raised eyebrows with comments that were published in the Arkansas Democrat Gazette on Sunday, calling slavery “the necessary evil upon which the union was built.” Cotton’s remarks came in the context of an interview regarding a bill he filed that would prevent federal tax dollars from being used to teach the “1619 Project,” a research project, podcast series, and accompanying curriculum that was developed by Nikole Hannah-Jones for The New York Times Magazine. The date refers to the year in which the first slaves from Africa were brought to colonial America, and the project seeks “to reframe American history by considering what it would mean to regard 1619 as our nation’s birth year.” The 1619 Project...

    Republican Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton introduced legislation Thursday which would prohibit the use of federal funding from going towards the teaching of The New York Times’ “1619 Project.” The Saving American History Act of 2020 would also bar federal professional-development grants from schools that teach curriculums related to the “1619 Project.” (RELATED: New York Times Writer Claims Property Destruction Is ‘Not Violence’) “The New York Times’s 1619 Project is a racially divisive, revisionist account of history that denies the noble principles of freedom and equality on which our nation was founded.

    Ola Osaze (center) with members of the Black LGBTQIA+ Migrant Project. July 9 was the anniversary of the ratification of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, “the linchpin of the current constitutional system” that allowed for birthright citizenship, granting citizenship to formerly enslaved people and promising equal protection of the laws. More than 150 years after these promises were made to African Americans, the country has yet to deliver on them. It seems like an interesting moment to reflect on this milestone given the nationwide uprisings as part of the Movement for Black Lives.

    One tweet describes President Trump’s campaign as a “criminal enterprise.” An ad — with the hashtag #TrumpIsNotWell — shows the president struggling to walk down a ramp, and another mocks the size of the crowd at Trump’s rally in Tulsa, saying, “You’ve probably heard this before, but it was smaller than we expected.” They’re all from a political action group called the Lincoln Project, and according to co-founder Reed Galen, they’re meant for one specific audience: Trump himself. “We have what we call ‘an audience of one’ strategy, which is clearly aimed at the president,” Galen told me. The Lincoln Project is made up of former Republicans who are avowed “NeverTrump” conservatives. The group brought in $16.8 million between April...

Chickens lay eggs in a nearby coop. When family members and a hired hand gathered for lunch a few days before the Fourth of July, they ate chops from a lamb the Noltes had raised themselves.

Nolte had been running his 500-head beef cattle operation mostly out of sight, on scrappy land that has been in his...
