Red Dead Redemption 2 release date news and GTA 5 Online money update

The Red Dead Redemption 2 release date has been set for October 2018, and fans are hoping that there will be no new delays. Fans were expecting to find out more about the upcoming release this month, but were probably surprised to learn that Rockstar were pushing back their launch plans yet again.

Ancient Mexican City Once Had As Many Buildings As Manhattan, Laser Scan Reveals

The method, which is called light detection and ranging scanning (LiDAR), uses a combination of aerial light pulses and GPS to create a 3D map. It’s been used to uncover a number of cities and most recently played a role in rediscovering a more than 1,000-year-old city in western Mexico, according to The Guardian. Related: Ancient…

Joy Reid: ‘Black Panther’ envisions what could have been for black Americans

Get the Think newsletter. SUBSCRIBE If I had to reduce “Black Panther” to a single word, it would be “glorious.” The movie was a first on many fronts: a Marvel blockbuster directed by an African American, Ryan Coogler, and starring a nearly all-black cast led by Chadwick Boseman as the title character King T’Challa (the “Black Panther” himself), Michael B.

Why Americans Started Buying Military-Style Weapons Like the One Used in the Florida Shooting

It’s become a sadly familiar American routine. The shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., bore many of the hallmarks of the other school shootings that have shocked the nation over the course of the last weeks, months and years. Among those similarities was the weapon used by accused shooter Nikolas Cruz: the AR-15. This semiautomatic version of the U.S. military’s M-16 infantry rifle and similar weapons have been used in most of the deadliest mass shootings in the last decade, including the one at Sandy Hook…

After large-scale killings, aid groups find new ways to comfort

Charitable giving in the United States went up 4 percent last year, a nice jump after near-zero growth the year before, according to the Blackbaud Institute. The causes include a better economy, big hurricanes, and the ease of online giving. But also of note is that giving was even higher to faith-based and international aid groups.
