The two-minute trailer brought together nearly every major superhero in Disney's Marvel Cinematic Universe. Captain America, Spider-Man, Black Widow, Doctor Strange all appeared in the dramatic trailer, which has already racked up nearly half a million views on YouTube.

The teaser included exciting scenes of the Avengers coming together to take on the Marvel super team's biggest foe: Thanos.

"In time you will know what it is like to lose," said Thanos, who is played by Josh Brolin. "To feel so desperately that you're right, yet to fail all the same."

Avengers: Infinity War starts the two-part finale of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it. The end will come for the original superheroes we’ve grown to love over the years, including Iron Man and Thor, but the question is how their stories will end. Will they die in a battle with Thanos, either in Infinity War or Avengers 4? Will they simply retire to Avengers Tower and watch as other superheroes, like Spider-Man, Black Panther and Captain Marvel, save the planet from catastrophic threats? READ MORE

Finally! The demolition of the old Silverdome is almost here! Read this great article from Crain's about it.

The decaying Pontiac Silverdome, former home of the Detroit Lions and pain in the neck building where I used to do shows, will also be destroyed by a controlled explosion — in part.

But whether a structure is demolished over the course of weeks or months, or in just a matter of seconds or minutes, depends on a variety of factors.

The most critical is what surrounds the targeted building, said Rick Cuppetilli, executive vice president of Detroit-based demolition contractor Adamo Group Inc., which is razing the Silverdome starting Dec. 3 with a minor implosion of the stadium's upper ring.

  • Pounds of dynamite to be used: 300.
  • Structural steel to be recycled: 1,700 tons.
  • Rebar to be recycled: 1,800 tons.

The Hunt for the Zodiac Killer Limited Series Premiered last night at 10/9c. You can see it on the History Channel online or On Demand.

Throughout the early 1960s and 1970s, the Zodiac Killer, one of history’s most famous unidentified serial murderers, terrorized America in a spree of heinous attacks, sending taunting letters and codes filled with bizarre and ancient symbols.

This code has baffled some of the greatest minds in cryptology for over 50 years. HISTORY’s new nonfiction limited series, "The Hunt For The Zodiac Killer" opens up a new investigation into the mystery of this twisted serial assassin.

There are tons of people over the years who think they know who the Zodiac might have been. A lot of those stories are compelling...but still not enough proof.


Review by Author Carol James

It can be classified as a thriller with political content, but also as a controversial historical drama about England’s Golden Age.

At the very beginning in a theatrical atmosphere we have the one and only Derek Jacobi who inserts us in the revealing of the truth about Shakespeare.

The story took us at the time of the Elizabethan era or more precisely at the very end of Queen Elizabeth I (Vanessa Redgrave) reign passing through the political intrigues from William Cecil (David Thewlis) and his son Robert Cecil (Edward Hogg) over her succession.

We see London where ordinary people struggle for their own place and moment in history by creating a public theatre called The Rose. This place is often visited by a nobleman Edward de Vere (Rhys Ifans), the 17th Earl of Oxford who is actually the central figure.

There he sees how easily spectators can be influenced by interpreting stories. In the same place another important figure, Ben Jonson (Sebastian Armesto) a play writer is arrested for insurrection against the established order through his play.

This is the moment where de Vere decides to use Jonson’s position and employ his plays written in secrecy with a hidden message for the spectators (the people) and promote the rebel cause of Robert Devereux (Sam Reid), 2nd Earl of Essex against the Queen.

It was rumored that the Earl of Essex is an illegitimate son of Elizabeth I, what makes the cause even greater vis a vis Cecil’s plan to bring James VI of Scotland (James Clyde), son of Mary, Queen of Scotland as a crowned king of England and end the Tudor dynasty.

Jonson is rescued by de Vere in return to materialize the plan.

The first play is Henry V, and the crowd bursts out for the writer’s name. But he could not get risque his name so as an author puts a semiliterate, drunk and below average young actor William Shakespeare (Rafe Spall). Although this was an unexpected start, Jonson will stay confidant to de Vere.

The other legendary plays follow, such as Romeo and Juliet where Shakespeare himself is to play Romeo. Hamlet is performed at court for the Queen in which there is also a hidden moment (death of Polonius) that tells us for the unresolved past between de Vere and the Cecils.

This animosity is based on the love affair between de Vere and the Queen during their youth (Edward de Vere – Jamie Cambell Bower /Elizabeth I Joely Richardson) because de Vere is Willliam’s son in law for his daughter Anne (Amy Kwolek/Helen Baxendale).

Edward de Vere and Elizabeth have a son, Henry Wriothesley, 3rd Earl of Southampton (Xavier Samuel), whose identity is known only by de Vere and the Cecils. He wrote Venus and Adonis to remind Elizabeth of their love.

But Shakespeare discovers the true author of the plays and extorts money, and that’s how he builds the Globe Theatre and gains patronage. Jonson is disappointed, they have a quarrel, but he fails to reveal the fraud. Shakespeare is dangerous, even Christopher Marlowe (Trystan Gravelle) ends up dead for discovering the truth about the other author.

The climax of the story is the performance of the play Richard III in which Robert Cecil is ridiculed (he was a humpback), but also sways the crowd and starts a riot that will help Essex and Southampton to march in the Palace and claim the throne in peace. But the plan failed because of the betrayal of Ben Jonson to Robert Cecil, so Essex and Southampton are arrested as rebels and are set to be executed.

This happens in front Edward de Vere eyes, and Robert Cecil then tells him a disturbing secret about Elizabeth’s many illegitimate sons including de Vere himself what makes them caught in incest. Edward de Vere is broken, but he has a private meeting with Elizabeth and tells her about their son, so Earl of Southampton is saved. However, she insists that the true author of “Shakespeare’s“ plays is never to be revealed.

Robert Cecil wanted the manuscript destroyed like he has stated “ Plays are the work of the devil – born from a cesspool of plague, whoredom, thievery, fornication, and heresy“ so he burns The Rose theatre with them inside it.

But Ben Jonson at the end discovers they’ve survived the fire and leaves us with the thought that the truth is still out there.

Director: Rolland Emmerich
Writer: John Orloff
Runtime: 130 min
Interesting: Joely Richardson who plays young Elizabeth is Vanesa Redgrave’s daughter

The early Native Americans did not record time by using the months of the Julian or Gregorian calendar. Many tribes kept track of time by observing the seasons and lunar months, although there was much variability. For some tribes, the year contained 4 seasons and started at a certain season, such as spring or fall. Others counted 5 seasons to a year. Some tribes defined a year as 12 Moons, while others assigned it 13. Certain tribes that used the lunar calendar added an extra Moon every few years, to keep it in sync with the seasons.



Actors Holt McCallany (Bill Tench) and Jonathan Groff  (Holden Ford)

In the late 1970s two FBI agents expand criminal science by delving into the psychology of murder and getting uneasily close to all-too-real monsters.

I streamed this series in one night...it is so good. The first episode gets off to a bit of a slow start. Episode 2 takes off and you are there right to the amazing cliff hanger last episode. Cannot wait for Season 2!

John Douglas the famous FBI Special Agent was one of the first criminal profilers and has written books on criminal psychology helped write all 11 episodes. that would explain why this series is so accurate and captivating.

Here is the book John Douglas wrote that inspiredthe Mindhunter series. Click the link below to purchase his book.

Two FBI agents, fighting the departmental stigma of backroom boys - those who try to complicate the status quo of simple MMO of crime-solving with academics - work to develop an innovative investigative field incorporating psychology as a method to reveal motive.
