The focus on all that made Stranger Things great is strong. Netflix Season 1 was an overwhelming commercial success, season 2 didn’t quite hit the same heights, but Stranger Things is back. The good news: Season 3 is potentially the best one yet.With a tighter, slightly shorter run of eight episodes that manages to tap every emotional vein of childhood (even for those who didn’t grow up in the ’80s) while leaking more monsters from the Upside Down, season 3 is a roller coaster that never lets up. With a refreshing helping of humor and summer sunshine, this time round Stranger Things focuses on what the show does best. It’s a smart return to form for creators the Duffer Brothers, despite a creeping yet evident strain on upping the terrors for the kids of Hawkins, Indiana.Billy has a big role to play. Netflix As with the two previous seasons, a threat looms from the murky and generic science-lab world. Men in white coats have ill-advised designs on the small town of Hawkins. Meanwhile, those who remember the lasting shot of the second season will know that the gigantic spider-like Mind Flayer remains trapped but intact in the Upside Down. While it threatens the poor people of Hawkins yet again, Billy, our favorite mullet-sporting bully, does what he does best: Terrorize while looking cool. 2:33 Related stories Stranger Things 3: The tiny, beautiful references to season 1 and 2 Stranger Things season 3: Our biggest WTF questions Stranger Things 3 ending: Post-credits scene, Hopper, season 4 Comments While different, this season’s threats don’t benefit from the fear of the unknown — the Demogorgons and their variations just aren’t as scary as they used to be. However, our heroes Mike, Will, Dustin, Lucas, Max and El are entering new territory. It’s called becoming a teenager and the shock of seeing the young heroes stretched out and deeper voiced quickly gives way to hilarity as they attempt to navigate identity and love. Now playing: Watch this: Through the well-timed placement of banger after ’80s banger, a message of embracing your nerdiness is loud and clear. But while the smart kids constantly prove their worth to the bumbling adults, there’s still no escaping a few helpful coincidences.This season’s sense of fun, along with its relationship drama and multiple odd pair-ups bring humor and touching moments that recall Game of Thrones at its best. While the story flows in tighter spaces and everyone has a part to play in grander events, the conspiracy is simply a side project. It’s a fun excuse to spend the summer in the warmer-than-ever world of Stranger Things.Watch the third season of Stranger Things on Netflix July 4. 59 Photos Culture TV and Movies The ever-expanding cast introduces Maya Hawke, daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, as Robin, an ice cream scooper working a summer job with Steve Harrington, who’s recently graduated and down on his luck. Their prodding and poking fun at each other, along with the glowing Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin and last season’s MVP Priah Ferguson as Erica, form the backbone of a party of misfits we never knew we needed.Surprisingly, many of the most touching moments come from a hard-drinking and eating Hopper, who turns to Joyce for parental advice. His willingness to move on from everything that’s happened — including the loss of his daughter to cancer — carries his stubborn and bad-tempered police chief beyond his well-established Rambo machine gun-toting territory. David Harbour needs to take yet another bow. See all the Stranger Things season 3 photos 3 Stranger Things season 3: Everything to know As season 3 kicks off, El appears to be on shaky ground. Her world largely revolves around being Mike’s girlfriend: The boy and the sense of home he provides, which she tried so desperately to return to throughout season 2. Now their constant kissing causes Hopper deep disdain. Swiftly and for the better, though, her world opens up, along with a new shopping mall setting that seems to be an overflowing gateway to ’80s references.El and Max form a welcome friendship. Netflix A highlight is El’s relationship with Max. They overcome their initial misunderstanding and jealousy as Max provides some much-needed guidance for El. Some of El’s new vocabulary leads to standout El moments, including the word “bitchin'” used to golden effect. Tags Share your voice
US president Donald Trump. AFPUS president Donald Trump said Sunday he is creating a commission headed by vice president Mike Pence to investigate what the US leader alleges was massive voter fraud in the 2016 election.No public evidence has emerged of large-scale illegal voting in the November election, and Trump and the White House have failed to substantiate the president’s claim.However Trump listed the ways he believed voter fraud had occurred during an interview with Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly which aired before the Super Bowl on Sunday.The fraud was apparent, Trump said, “when you look at the registration and you see dead people that have voted, when you see people that are registered in two states that voted in two states, when you see other things, when you see illegals — people that are not citizens — and they are on the registration rolls.””It’s really a bad situation. It’s really bad” Trump said.Trump’s own lawyers have stated in legal filings that there was no evidence of fraud in the November 8 election.But on Sunday the president promised “to set up a commission to headed by Vice President Mike Pence and we’re going to look at it very, very carefully.”Trump has previously argued that were it not for illegal immigrants voting, he would have won not just the electoral college but also the popular vote, which was taken by Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.Although there has been no substantiated evidence of massive voter fraud, US officials have said they believe that Russia attempted to meddle in the presidential vote by hacking Democratic Party emails as part of a pro-Trump campaign.Senators have launched a bipartisan investigation into Russia’s alleged meddling.

We’re not trying to displace thousands of Harmony students,” said John Martin, senior counsel with Amsterdam and Partners which filed the complaint. “We’re trying to get to the bottom of several red flags related to discrimination, self-dealing and immigration visa issues.”The complaint alleges that Harmony has abused the immigration visa system to hire Turkish nationals, that it’s discriminated against other non-Turkish employees and that it’s given a large portion of contracts to affiliated companies or former employees.The complaint also alleges that the system has ties to a controversial Muslim cleric, Fethullah Gulen, who’s been accused of trying to overthrow the Turkish government.Harmony CEO Soner Tarim said that the complaint is a political attack from a Turkish administration hostile to critics.“You know this was established here, as a nonprofit organization,” Tarim said. “That’s why I call it a political move and it’s a witch-hunt. And we have nothing to do with Turkey.”Tarim, who is a dual citizen with Turkey, said that the current president there, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has received little support from Turkish Americans.He pointed to Harmony’s successes, like a $30 million federal grant and continued expansion.This isn’t the first time Harmony charter schools have faced state and federal investigations, though it’s never faced sanctions.A spokeswoman for the Texas Education Agency said that they’ve received the complaint and will decide the next steps.

Share Megan Kamerick/KUNMKate Noble speaks to voters at a listening session at Gonzales Community School in Santa Fe, N.M. She ran for a seat on the Santa Fe Public Schools Board.Will the election of Donald Trump, who once boasted of grabbing women by the genitalia and has a history of sexist remarks, create a wave of female candidates at all levels of government in the coming years?Early signs from the groups that work with women considering a bid for office suggest a level of intense interest not seen in at least a quarter century.Kate Noble had never considered getting involved in politics until she woke up the day after Trump’s surprise victory over Hillary Clinton.Noble worked for years in the economic development office of Santa Fe, N.M., and she believes a good workforce depends on well-educated citizens, so she decided to run for a local school board seat.Her political philosophy is distinctly un-Trumpian: “I want to be someone who can bring forward anybody’s and everybody’s good ideas. They don’t need to be my own.”The interest in running for office comes as women are still far from having anywhere close to proportionate representation at any level of government. In Congress, about 20 percent of lawmakers are women, while in statehouses, about 25 percent of lawmakers are women.In Noble’s case, she contacted the New Mexico branch of Emerge, a group that trains Democratic women to run for office. She ended up running unopposed and won.A Trump bumpIt turns out Noble wasn’t the only woman to wake up with the same idea after the election.“We saw an immediate uptick in interest in our work,” said Andrea Dew Steele, the president and founder of Emerge America. “And it has persisted through today. It’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen.”Applications for the group’s training sessions increased 87 percent after Election Day, Steele said.“Some of it is absolutely a reaction to President Trump and his policies,” said Jean Sinzdak, of the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University. “For others, it is Hillary Clinton’s loss,” because the fact that we don’t have a female president “sort of woke them up to the idea that maybe we haven’t made as much progress as we thought.”Sinzdak oversees the university’s nonpartisan New Jersey training program, Ready to Run, which also has affiliates nationwide. Ready to Run is experiencing its own Trump bump with more than 50 women signing up immediately after Election Day. This year’s program is already at capacity, which Sinzdak, who has been running the program for 12 years, says typically doesn’t happen until March. The program has been expanded to accommodate up to 50 extra people.Both Steele and Sinzdak say the interest they’re seeing from women who want to run for office reminds them of what they saw in the early 1990s following the Anita Hill hearings. Hill had accused then-Supreme Court nominee, now Justice, Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment.After those hearings, Sinzdak said, “We did have an increase in the numbers of women running for office and we saw a big jump in the number of women who ran for and won election to Congress.”Local and state officesWhile Trump became president without ever running for another office, most people get their start in politics the way Noble is, by running for local office.“I don’t think people realize that a lot of the decisions that are made that affect their daily lives happen at the local and state levels,” said Ashley Sanderson, the executive director of Emerge New Mexico.But a surge in interest in running for office might not translate into women actually running for office, said Rachel Michelin, executive director of the nonpartisan training group California Women Lead, pointing to 2012 as a year that was supposed to be good for female candidates in California.“We had open seats. We just had redistricting in California. It was a presidential election. So we thought we would see this big surge of women getting elected,” she said. “What happened, though, was we just didn’t have enough women running.”That’s where groups like California Women Lead, Emerge America and Ready to Run come in to help guide women from signing up for a training program to actually running for office. Steele, of Emerge America, believes this latest burst of enthusiasm is different from past years and she’s confident that more women will actually run in 2018.“The biggest challenge for us is getting more women interested in running,” said Steele. “So the fact that women are self-nominating, are waking up and saying ‘I want to do this,’ is the biggest, most hopeful sign that I’ve seen definitely since the Anita Hill hearings.”As for Noble, she says she’s already learned a lot by running for office.“I have really liked listening to people, working on ideas, having people listening to me.” She says the school board campaign was a good test run for future campaigns. “I’m so energized.”Copyright 2017 KQED Public Media.

Peer-to-peer file services like BitTorrent were seeing a decline in traffic over the last decade, with the increasing popularity of affordable streaming services like Netflix. The number of piracy streaming options fell and was said to be accounted for the services provided by the on-demand video services and strict anti-piracy laws. However, recent reports published by Sandvine, who has been keeping a close eye on the file-sharing traffic, suggested that the traffic for streaming file-services is now growing. The report also noted that BitTorrent was earlier evidently losing out on market share but is now emerging to be the leading file-sharing place with 97% share. Over the past few years, Netflix had emerged as the leader in the streaming market and was single-handedly responsible for hosting a wide variety of content. While this was happening, the market observed a decrease in upstream and downstream file sharing of content, popularly called the torrents. This went on to suggest that the streaming market was rising and piracy downloading was reducing. However, Netflix is no more the single most popular streaming services that exist. Other video streaming services like Amazon Prime videos, Hulu, and others have fragmented the market with popular content playing over multiple services. This seems to have re-introduced the traditional practice of file-sharing over the internet and BitTorrent has gained the market. Sandvine’s report further stated the following in its report: “More sources than ever are producing ‘exclusive’ content available on a single streaming or broadcast service – think Game of Thrones for HBO, House of Cards for Netflix, The Handmaid’s Tale for Hulu, or Jack Ryan for Amazon. To get access to all of these services, it gets very expensive for a consumer, so they subscribe to one or two and pirate the rest.” File sharing involves uploading and downloading a part of a file over a peer-to-peer network. Reportedly, file sharing makes up for 3% of all download and 22% of all upload traffic. Here, BitTorrent enjoys the lion’s share with a massive 97% of all upstream file-sharing traffic. Evidently, fragmentation in the subscription video-on-demand market is playing the major role. To know more about this in detail, check out the discussion thread on Hacker News.
