Netflix confirms it has no plans to add fictional disclaimer to #TheCrown

Despite calls from Buckingham Palace and apparent members of the government —- streaming service Netflix has no plans to add a disclaimer to its smash hit. The calls for such originally came after members of the government claimed that the show was damaging to the image of the royal family. “We have always presented ‘The Crown’ as a drama – and we have every confidence our members understand it’s a work of fiction that’s broadly based on historical events,” a Netflix spokesperson told Variety.com “As a result we have no plans — and see no need — to add a disclaimer.”

T.V Time: What is the “Norovirus” as described in Netflix ‘s — The Barrier?

Following our T.V recommendation on Netflix ‘s The Barrier —- many of you have already e-mailed in response asking what in the world is the norovirus. As it turns out — that isn’t some made up virus that happens to be on a T.V show. In fact the norovirus has appeared before in real life on a number of instances. According to the World Health Organisation, the Norovirus is exactly as it is played out in the shockingly dysoptian hit. The virus has some pretty uncommon side effects and usually is transmitted by the fecal-oral route (I know that sounds pretty bizarre but it happens.) The virus can also be transmitted by human vomit (as seen in one of the scenes within the show where the man barfs on the house servant to the Minister.) The virus is believed to account for more t...

America’s 1st ever 2nd Gentleman is leaving his job before inauguration day

Prominent in his own right (check); dutiful career prior (check), now having to avoid conflicts of interest (check.) Douglas Emhoff, 56, Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris ‘s hubby is reportedly leaving his job at DLA Piper Law Firm before inauguration day. While mostly apparently a good deed in itself — it appears that DLA Piper Law Firm has actually its own ties to the federal government that would create a larger issue had he stayed on. Per reports, the law firm is fairly well known in Hollywood and even more well known among American behemoths like Comcast. DLA Piper has lobbied and even defended the likes of Comcast and more in favour of them to the federal government and apparently didn’t want to create issues for his wife.

New lockdown restrictions for NYC apparently on the way: De Blasio

There might be trouble brewing in New York City and reason enough for some to pay attention. According to Mayor De Blasio 's office, the city of New York is failing to contain the spread of the Coronavirus more than it previously did earlier this year. Failing so much that the apparent positivity rate has now sped past 2.88% -- a milestone that appears to be prepared to trigger potentially significant lockdowns again. The rolling weekly average was about 2.38% as of Tuesday afternoon. As a result of that -- De Blasio now says that new lockdown restrictions are being discussed among city and state officials. The new restrictions come amid apparent government fears that the virus could spiral out of control again --- and if it does NYC would likely be doomed. ‘Obviously if that g...

Obituary: Playboy Peanut (1988-2020)

Vine perhaps was best known as the orignation of internet funnies but the news surfacing about Vine isn’t so funny. According to the internet, PlayboyPeanut (see here) has died at the age of 31 leaving behind two sons in Louisiana. It remains unclear as to how the comedian turned Onlyfans creator actually passed away. To avoid speculation, we won’t say how we were told he died until we receive a confirmation. We have heard varying degrees of causes of death, however, we were unable to confirm them against any available information. Peanut was perhaps best known for his wildly funny Vine videos back in the day, and of course his wildly gorgeous hair. Editors Note: The status of this obituary is pending confirmation. An official cause of death is unknown, however, i...

The #USPS is removing mailboxes from cities, here’s why that it is important

The USPS and its corrupt general Louis DeJoy are pretty much making it obvious at this point their distaste for mail-in ballots. Over the weekend, it emerged that the org is apparently dismantling mailboxes (those usually blue neighbourhood mailboxes that appear across America) in what they claim is an effort to cut costs among other things. Perhaps the most standout problem with this is the fact that the blue mailboxes are vital for neighbourhoods because of how convenient it is to drop off mail. Historically, they have usually been considered pretty secure. Without those, millions of people especially those in perhaps rural or smaller towns (and even the larger ones) stand to be disenfranchised if the plan continues into the election. However, CNN has now confirmed that...

A plot twist in the criminal case against Trump out of Manhattan

The criminal case against Donald Trump in Manhattan has taken yet another plot twist. According to Politico, Manhattan 's District Attorney revealed in court documents that the case against Trump actually extends significantly beyond just tax records. Initially, it was believed that the case surrounded unreleased tax records and potential tax fraud. SCOTUS/ AP The DA 's office in Manhattan revealed in court documents that the investigation actually extends into the territory of potential business fraud and further liabilities. Such accusations extend Trump 's alleged wrongdoings far further than anyone may have originally realised. Officials believe Trump and co engaged in tax; business, and insurance fraud. On Monday, Cyrus Vance argued in the official filing that his ...

The press is already trying to paint Ahmaud Arbery as that black criminal so two white men can get away with his unjust murder

The Atlanta Journal Constitution should be vehemently ashamed of itself publishing a video that indicates no wrongdoing; indicates no crime, merely showing a man what they say appears to be Arbery briefly entering a construction-zoned home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rd3bezdgeow&feature=emb_title But according to the Atlanta based newspaper --- the video "indicates" that Arbery "was up to more than is being led on" and has now reportedly casted doubt on the claim he was "out for a jog." The family 's attorney Benjamin Crump has repeatedly stated that the "footage" changes nothing. "Our office has reviewed the surveillance video which appears to show a person, believed to be Ahmaud Arbery, entering a property under construction," Crump said in a statement on Satur...

Big news in the fight to actually have the monies meant for small businesses be used for small businesses.

LONDON….. TAKE COVER…

If the U.K gets its way that means a lockdown is imminent and residents across the U.K will get roughly a 12 hour warning before a full lockdown is in place. According to government officials --- residents would receive a full 12-hour warning to help accommodate them before they're forced inside. Allot of the disruption in the U.K appears to come from the fact that MP 's and lawmakers are noticing a significant rise in images of revellers at bars and such. Leaked government plans on Wednesday showed that the government, uh, has plans to guard airports and grocery stores. In that same plan, it is also revealed that they would airdrop food to people and only one person would be allowed outside at a time. This comes as the UK death toll has risen 33 more in the past 24 hours...
