Watch a Teaser for Netflix’s New Kyle Chandler Thriller, Bloodline

Originally posted on TIME:

Looks like Coach Taylor is up to no good. Former Friday Night Lights actor Kyle Chandler is starring in a new, binge-watchable Netflix original series called Bloodline, from the creators of Damages. The above teaser doesn’t reveal much — the streaming video giant only just confirmed the title Thursday — but the show will follow four siblings in the Florida Keys whose interpersonal drama gets dug up when their ne’er-do-well sibling comes back home. (A burning boat is also involved, evidently.)

Linda Cardellini, Ben Mendelsohn, Sissy Spacek and Sam Shepard will also star in the show, whose 13 episodes arrive all at once in March.

Let’s be honest, email isn’t what it used to be. Today’s email is a way to keep in touch with anyone, anywhere, anytime, no matter what. And while this is great, sometimes the sheer volume of unread messages in your inbox can be overwhelming. Enter the new brainchild of the geniuses at Google, Inbox by Gmail.

“Inbox is by the same people who brought you Gmail, but it’s not Gmail: it’s a completely different type of inbox, designed to focus on what really matters,” Google says in a post on the Gmail blog. “We get more email now than ever, important information is buried inside messages, and our most important tasks can slip through the cracks—especially when we’re working on our phones. For many of us, dealing with…

A Letter to My 19-Year-Old Self on My 39th Birthday

Dear me,

You know how right now EVERY SINGLE THING seems like IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT? Like, how every small thing and every huge thing needs to be done perfectly all the time right now and there’s no perspective and you can’t waste one single second because right now is your big time and pretty soon you will be old and it’ll all be over?

Yeah, throw all that kind of thinking out the window.

You’re going to turn 20. And you’re going to turn 40. And you’re going to die. People are going to tell you that you need to have a plan, that you have just one chance, that you better not “blow it.” Here’s what they don’t tell you. You only make it when you blow it. Meaning, don’t be afraid to screw up. A lot. But if you can, try…

All Your Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer Questions Answered

Originally posted on TIME:

As you’re likely aware at this point (and if not, surprise!), the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron leaked late last night, so Marvel—after blaming those no-good troublemakers at Hydra—decided to release the official version nearly a week ahead of schedule.

If you’ve watched the trailer, it’s a good bet that you have at least a few questions. We’ll do our best to answer them below:

Marvel

Who’s that guy talking to us in the voiceover?

That would be the titular Ultron (James Spader, recently of The Blacklist), one of Marvel’s chief supervillains and a prime nemesis of the Avengers in the comics.

Wait, so it’s not the Mandarin?

No. Even though Spader is using the same creepy/menacing inflection that Ben Kingsley employed for the Mandarin in Iron Man 3, these are two entirely separate and distinct characters.

Okay, so back to Ultron. What’s his…

The Best Browser Privacy Tools (That Don’t Make Life More Difficult)

Originally posted on TIME:

In a year when social media giants and governments alike have made headlines for tracking users online without their consent, battening down the virtual hatches has become a vital part of Internet hygiene.

Blocking tracking technologies, however, also disables those handy auto-fill log-ins and web personalization features, preventing you from easily shopping online and making your web experience feel as if you’re back in 1999.

So we went in search of privacy tools that don’t impact your browsing experience. We tested browser tools ranging from the basic Private Mode on all browsers to full-featured ad blockers. We looked at the four most-used browsers in the United States: Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer. Here’s what we found to be most helpful for safeguarding your privacy and anonymity — and what measures of convenience you might have to give up if you use them.

Here’s How Well Your Genes Can Predict Your Breast Cancer Risk

Originally posted on TIME:

Your genes have a lot to say about who you are and how healthy you are. But for certain diseases, including cancer, so many genes are likely involved that it’s hard for doctors to come up with a useful, reliable way to turn your DNA information into a precise risk score.

But in a paper published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, researchers say that combining the known genetic players in breast cancer can predict with much higher accuracy a newborn girl’s theoretical risk of developing the disease.

Alice Whittemore, a professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at Stanford University School and Medicine, and her colleagues included 86 known genetic variants that have been associated with breast cancer—including BRCA1 and BRCA2, which are relatively rare but confer a very high risk of disease compared to…

Hale vs Harris, and the Breach of Online Ethics

[10/22: This post has been edited to include new information regarding Hale & Harris's Twitter conversations, and the dissemination of Harris's physical address. Many thanks to commenter Cheryl for the updates.]

Over the last couple of days, fingers have been flying across keyboards all across the book industry in response to the October 18th article in the Guardian, titled Am I being catfished?’ An author confronts her number one online critic. If you have any ear turned towards author, book, or book blogger news, you’ve probably already been introduced to this story. Many prominent bloggers have thrown their weight into the ring, and what perhaps began as a largely “on the author’s side” argument, is now firmly in the realm of “what was she thinking?”

In case you aren’t aware of what happened, feel free to read the article above, or any of the others listed below. However…
