Things of Interest: 01/09/15

I read and watch a lot of stuff on the Internet that I find interesting; plus, as a university student, I receive a lot of recommendations from students and teachers alike. In these posts, I share a few of the highlights I’ve come across.

  1. Tragedy struck the offices of a French satire magazine on Wednesday when three gunmen entered a meeting and murdered twelve people. More details here. Just insane.

  2. In The New Yorker, Lincoln Caplan isn’t happy about analysis that seems to indicate the United States Supreme Court seems to pick cases to look at based not only on the merits of the case but the merits of the lawyer as well.

  3. UCR was handing out free tickets for the 10 pm showing of Taken 3 today; the line was super long and lasted for hours. Not sure how the theater handled that. In honor of the new movie, Screen Junkies has released an Honest Trailer for the first two installment.
