The erstwhile Facebook status update has long been usurped by the Snapchat and now Instagram Story as the social currency of choice for younger app users. Of course Facebook owns the latter product too, and has mercilessly cloned Stories. But it hardly wants its flagship service to just fade away into the background like the old fart it actually is in Internet age terms. Not if it can reinvigorate the product with a new purpose — and so we arrive at online dating. Zuckerberg is not trying to compete with online dating behemoth Tinder, though.

There was a lot riding on this, the concluding episode of the two-part season finale of ” Star Trek: Picard ,” entitled “Et in Arcadia Ego — part II,” especially given that the build up last week was not too shabby. The week before however, episode 8 , had been a rollercoaster ride of highs and lows — now, imagine that times a thousand. You’ll be shell-shocked for sure, and after that, probably left feeling more than a little disappointed, maybe even angry, but definitely wondering how much the writers on this show get paid.
Sadly, this season finale is going to polarize “Star Trek” fans for a long time to come. In essence, the first two acts, with the exception of a few small to mid-sized shortcomings, were mostly of high quality, with some good ideas and even a couple of glimpses of genius. But then, just when you thought that Alex Kurtzman, Michael Chabon, Akiva Goldsman and everyone else who has a hand in writing this show were about to pull off the boldest most unexpected and courageous move ever …the plot reaches its apex, forward momentum gently slows to a stop and then it pitches, nose down and heads vertically straight for the ground at maximum warp.

In this special competition, the baskets are filled with enticing, soul-soothing comfort foods! The chefs are asked to carry the comfort food theme onto their completed plates, starting in round one when they must utilize something starchy and something greasy. A homey protein and some beautiful tomatoes are in the mix in the entree round, then a nostalgic cookie meets a dairy delight in the dessert basket.
The chefs must make use of ingredients that are usually thrown out, for being imperfect, overripe or stale. For example, the first basket includes juicer pulp and tea bags. Then in the second round, the competitors have to get creative with a little bit of salad dressing and some paltry scraps of poultry. And the finalists get some often-tossed portions of a fruit and the peels of a veggie to work into their desserts.
Guest judge Andrew Zimmern is on hand in this competition filled with bizarre surprises in all the baskets. The chefs have to contend with an offbeat ice cream flavor and an unusual meat in the appetizer round.

With the revelation that Melissa Hardinge and others in the BBC have asked presenters to remove red lipstick because it makes them “too sexy,” and not suitable for “fantastic female role models,” we have to be asking ourselves, what’s wrong with lippy all of a sudden? As per always, the discussion of what is considered ‘sexualising’ or ‘harmful to girls’ fails entirely to consider either the historical perspective or what the same markers of femininity signal to different cultures.
The same factors haunt any discussion of power and women’s hair length; it’s entirely dependent on context, but this is often unacknowledged, perpetuating the myth of British cultural homogeneity.

British Broadcasting Corporation Home. Our Lhasa Apso, Rascal , is getting too fat. The vet was none too happy with us.

Samples of the body were taken for DNA analysis, though many people believe it is the blood-sucking beast “el chupacabra,” the world’s best known monster after Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster. The chupacabra first appeared in Puerto Rico in and sightings soon spread to other Spanish-speaking countries and areas.
