Get the Look: Shenova Women in STEM

I was so happy to find this cool dress from Shenova, a company that supports women in STEM! The owner, Holly, could not have been faster and kinder to deal with this request.

They have some pretty awesome designs from DNA Helix to Jupiter too. I’ve already picked up two more.  Sizes are pretty true – I’m in an XS and it fits great. Bonus: it doesn’t wrinkle so perfect for travel.

The Parallels Between 'The Man in the High Castle' and Today's Political Climate Are Impossible to Ignore

The Man In The High Castle, Amazon’s ambitious adaptation of the Philip K. Dick novel, has already attracted more than its fair share of controversy. The show first found itself embroiled in scandal when it plastered the New York City subway system with Nazi imagery, and then Amazon abruptly parted ways with its creator and Season 1 showrunner Frank Spotnitz midway through the filming of the show’s second season. However, the show and its primary cast members —Alexa Davalos, Rufus Sewell, DJ Qualls and Brennan Brown— were received with rapturous applause when they appeared earlier today at New York Comic Con.

He came out not with a fortune but, rather, an idea for a television show.

New York Comic Con 2016: It's the Final Chapter for the 'Resident Evil' Franchise

The streets of Hollywood are littered with the detritus of big budget video game adaptations that have failed to get film franchises off the ground: Prince Of Persia, Warcraft, Doom, Max Payne … we could go on and on. This is why it’s so surprising to hear that the Resident Evilfranchise is voluntarily coming to an end in 2017 when Resident Evil: The Final Chapter hits theaters. Since its theatrical debut in 2002, the series has spawned a total of six films and grossed well over $1 billion in worldwide box office, making it the most successful film series of its kind.
