  • Colin Jost Kicks Off Weekend Update with Solid Debut

    Weekend Update has been held in such high regard since Seth Meyers took the show under his wing in 2006–2007 alongside Amy Poehler. After Poehler’s departure Meyers took on a solo role until taking on another co-anchor who seemed like the perfect fit, Cecily Strong this season. Meyers, who named Colin Jost co-head writer last season, kept the string of head writers behind the Weekend Update desk in tact. Jost has had a significant amount of success as a writer under Meyers and now in the leadership role, is keeping his head afloat working with a virtually unknown cast since the mass star-studded exodus last season. Jost’s performance behind the Update desk went over without a hitch, almost. Jay Pharoah and Keenan Thompson did a duel cameo as Shaq and Charles Barkley which had a great reception, aside from Pharoah missing a line due to, what looked like a cross-eye mishap. As for the jokes, Jost’s choices seemed to have the audience in stitches taking a few chances out of the gate with a “gay Jeter” joke; ”Jason Collins made history this week when he became the first openly gay athlete to play on a major professional sports team.

  • The Plan To Clean Up Mount Everest [20 Photos]

    Plan on tackling Mount Everest any time soon? If so, be prepared for a little extra weight on the trek back down. Over the last 60 years, the mountain has become increasingly covered in trash and to tackle the problem, Nepal is instilling a new rule where every adventurer must return with not only their own trash, but an additional 8 kg, or 17.6 lb, of garbage collected on the way. If you don’t follow the new rule, legal action will be taken, although it is unknown if that will be a fine or some other penalty. Expeditions already have to pay a $4000 deposit to scale the mountain, which is refunded when the party returns and proves they’ve brought back everything, but enforcement has been lax. Six decades of Everest expeditions has resulted in empty oxygen tanks, Buddhist prayer flags, beer bottles, tents, and even the bodies of deceased climbers (which don’t decompose in the cold), littering the landscape and hopefully the new policy will ease the problem.

  • The Secret Tunnels and Rooms Of Arrested Drug Lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman

    Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman had an assault rifle handy when authorities raided his beachside hideaway, but the world’s most wanted drug lord never opened fire. That’s because marines used infrared and body-heat scanners to pinpoint the locations of everyone inside the condo and make sure they were asleep, a Mexican official told CNN. Pictures from the February 22nd pre-dawn operation that captured Guzman in the Mexican Pacific resort town of Mazatlan have been released and they reveal seven houses, connected by secret tunnels that also tied in with the city’s sewage system. When authorities raided one of them last week, it turned out to be Guzman’s main residence in the town of Culiacan. The time it took Mexican marines to get past the house’s reinforced steel doors was enough to allow Guzman to escape via a hidden hatch under a bathtub, the officials said. With authorities temporarily off his trail, Guzman slipped out of Culiacan through the sewer tunnels, the Mexican official told CNN.

  • iOS On Your Dashboard With Apple CarPlay

    This morning at the Geneva International Motor Show, Apple announced its rebranded its iOS in the Car as CarPlay. Along with the new name, Apple revealed that the first cars to feature CarPlay will debut at the show from Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, and Volvo. So what exactly will CarPlay allow you to do? With the help of Apple’s voice-activated Siri, drivers will be able to keep their eyes on the road while making calls, sending messages, selecting music, and getting navigation help. Don’t worry if you’re not an iTunes user. Apple will allow connectivity to third-party music apps like Spotify and iHeartRadio for your cruising soundtrack. The system will also be predictive, using information from your texts, emails, and searches to figure out where you plan on going without telling it anything. In addition to the aforementioned automakers, Nissan, Peugeot, Jaguar Land Rover, BMW, and General Motors will all feature CarPlay in future vehicles. Even Ford, who has been using Microsoft’s Sync voice-command system for years, is said to be a future partner. Soon the CarPlay steering wheel button may be as ubiquitous as seat warmers in autos. Wait, you don’t have seat warmers? Yikes.

  • Northern Lights Make Rare Appearance In British Skies [25 Photos]

    Thursday night, folks in Britain were treated to a rare appearance by the Northern Lights in their skies. The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, is a brilliant light display in the sky caused by collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun and the Earth’s atmosphere. The phenomenon is usually only visible in Arctic regions, but strong solar winds caused them to be seen further south than usual. I suppose after all the flooding, Britain deserves a little treat from Mother Nature. 

  • Portraits Of Convicts With Letters To Younger Selves [10 HQ Photos]

    For “The Reflection Project,” photographer Trent Bell captured portraits of inmates in the Maine prison system with handwritten letters from each inmate to his younger self in the background. When these people get locked away for so long, it’s so easy to have an attitude of “out of sight, out of mind,” but the reality is that they are real people living their lives behind bars because of a mistake. The idea for the powerful project came to Bell after a friend, a professional with a wife and 4 children, was sentenced to 36 years. We’ve all had moments where things could have taken a wrong turn, and this series serves as a reminder that it’s possible for any of us to find ourselves in these circumstances. For more info and other projects, check out Trent Bell Photography.
