SeaWorld officials opposed the condition barring breeding, saying it would mean that the park’s population of 11 whales would be the last orcas held in the park.3. "Humble Bundle has laid off 12 people — about 20 percent of its staff — in a move that the company's CEO admitted reflected overly eager expansion."
Humble Indie Bundle 15 has so far sold 137,000 units, with less than a day to go before the offer's expiry. The last two bundles both sold more than 160,000 copies, according to a list on Wikipedia. Sales of the Indie Bundle have been diminishing. Humble Indie Bundle 9, released in September, 2013, sold 713,000 bundles. Indie Bundles have generally sold more than 300,000 copies each, stretching back to the earliest days of the packages, in 2011.(Other than the Android sales, I buy pretty much every bundle.)
I just ordered Star Wars Where's the Wookiee Search and Find Book at Amazon:
Chewbacca, a notorious rebel ally, is wanted for crimes against the Empire. Not often seen without his partner-in-crime, Han Solo, this Wookiee has evaded capture on multiple occasions, due in no small part to the fastest freighter in the universe, the Millennium Falcon. Chewie, as he is more commonly known, has a sizeable bounty on his head. Can you find this furry criminal before other accomplished bounty hunters beat you to it? A uniquely illustrated search and find format, perfect for Star Wars fans young and old!

I watched a Youtube tutorial about how to recreate one of my pieces. Holy shit that video tought me so much about Photoshop.2. NYT:
That was days after Calvert, 29, had repeatedly been challenged for head-to-head play in another game, on the website FanDuel, by a Rick Sawyer. After checking a search engine, Calvert said, he found that Sawyer was actually a business planning manager at DraftKings.3. Replace the word "wand" with "dick" in any sentence from Harry Potter.
“I could only think that he had watched my DraftKings account and had me pegged as a suboptimal player,” Calvert said. “I felt like a moron.”
Calvert said it was “pretty obvious that with insider information and access to top players,” players like him would not have a chance in the long run.

second, if we're talking about families — 158 families — how are they "overwhelmingly... male"?3. Twitter Moments "is a disaster":
[Third] If all of the households gave just $5, that would be $600 million, vastly overwhelming those supposedly fearsome, overspending, rich, white men.
[Fourth] Why did the NYT draw the line at 158 families?
Twitter is obsessed with the celebrities that use its platform, and this is hardly the first time that Twitter takes their content and shoves it down your throat.4. $100 itunes for $80 at ebay. $50 for $40.
Twitter Moments are more of the same: Official organizations, members of the media, and celebrities.
The problem for Twitter with this approach is not only can you get that commentary anywhere, you can in fact get it better in other places!
