The pilot announces, in slightly too jolly an inflection, that we’re going to have a “bumpy descent” into Toronto, which my body takes as a cue to begin sweating. I’m heading to a press junket for The Strain , the FX show based on a trilogy of books by Guillermo Del Toro. It’s not hate-watching exactly. there are a lot of interesting odd things about The Strain that kept it from being actively bad. I don’t want to continue watching shows I don’t enjoy—at least on some level—and The Strain has thus far held my interest, though not because it’s doing very many things right. ) I’ve come on this trip in part to see if I can suss out what exactly the people involved with the show think about it, and whether they’re taking steps to improve it. I’m not at all sure anyone involved with the show will actually talk to me... This is a press junket, and I am the press, there to drum up interest for the next round of episodes involving vampires taking over New York City. I will see special effects guys hold up plaster busts of heads that have been torn apart, and joke about wishing the same thing would happen to them when it gets too busy. I will take part in question-and-answer sessions that seem primarily designed not to offend anybody.
There’s no denying that the latest additions to the Samsung flagship family, the Galaxy S6 , and its curved display counterpart, the Galaxy S6 Edge , are two of the best smartphones of the year thus far. Of course, Samsung does tend to launch multiple devices with various features and capabilities that share the flagship moniker, and that’s exactly what you get with the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active. Before we fully jump in and do our best to answer that question, it has to be mentioned that a lot of what made the Samsung Galaxy S6 a success returns with the Galaxy S6 Active. Still, there are a number of enhancements or compromises made with the Galaxy S6 Active, which is why we will skip over all that is same and instead focus solely on what makes the Galaxy S6 Active different from its flagship namesake. Without further ado, let’s dive in and take an in-depth look at the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active vs Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Many of us were excited with Samsung’s decision to move on to a different build material in the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, with their metal and glass unibody designs finally offering the premium look and feel that we wished for.

LIVING HISTORY -- "Obama bounces back," by Edward-Isaac Dovere : "There was shouting in the hallway outside the Oval Office when the decision came down - but most people couldn't tell at first whether it was happy or distraught. The Supreme Court decision capped a week of major and very personal victories for the president. A discussion on race, the most personal issue of his presidency, gained new urgency after he purposefully used a word that most agreed only he could say. 'Obamatrade,' as some right-wingers tried to rebrand 'fast-track' trade authority, is headed to his desk pretty much how he wanted it. " http://politi.
