Link roundup

1. "If you’ve seen Spectre, it should already be obvious to you that the James Bond franchise is a spinoff, taking place entirely within HP Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos."

2. "The United States Soccer Federation unveiled a series of safety initiatives [that] will prohibit players age 10 and younger from heading the ball and will reduce headers in practice for those from age 11 to 13."

3. "The direct act of heading the ball isn’t necessarily a problem. The study found that only 4.7% of boys’ concussions and 8.2% of girls’ concussions were due to head contact with the ball. But overall 30.6% of boys’ concussions and 25.3% of girls’ concussions occurred on headers, mostly from banging heads with another player, but also from hitting the turf."

4. Probe droid in the crowd to see The Emperor. Also, Knights of Ren.
