• TikTok’s Ban Has Been Temporarily Delayed

    By today, by all accounts, TikTok should have been banned in the US. However, it looks like the company is enjoying a temporary stay of execution. According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, it seems that the US Department of Commerce will not be pushing through the order that would have forced TikTok to shut down in the US.

    According to the Department of Commerce, they cite a preliminary injunction that a judge in Philadelphia had granted TikTok back in October, where a group of TikTok influencers had come together and filed a lawsuit, claiming that ban would have resulted in a detrimental effect on their businesses.

    The agency goes on to add that they will not be enforcing the order “pending further legal developments”. That being said, TikTok is not completely in the clear just yet. TikTok is involved in at least two legal cases

    On Monday, a press release from the transnational pharmaceutical company Pfizer dropped a rare spark of hope into the ongoing misery of the Covid-19 pandemic. Yes, new infections have hit an all-time high in the United States, and, yes, cities and states around the world are walking back their reopenings.

The release touted “a vaccine efficacy rate above 90 percent,” and it announced the company’s intention to seek from the US Food and Drug Administration an authorization to start giving people shots. The company’s ready to make 50 million doses this year and 1.3 billion doses in 2021.

    That’s an ember of hope, but it’s sitting under a bucket of cold water, ready to pour. The Pfizer vaccine is finicky—hard to make, transport, and deliver. Because of desperate

  • Spider-Cat officially ‘takes a pet, like no problem’ in Spider-Man: Miles Morales

    We already knew that Spider-Cat was going to be the true hero of Spider-Man: Miles Morales, but with the PS5 game’s launch yesterday, we’re learning new things about this furry sidekick. Specifically, that he takes a pet, like no problem.

    Video shared by the excellent and informative Twitter account @CanYouPetTheDog shows Spider-Cat getting a pet in-game, along with a very familiar line of dialogue. (You can also see the line at around 52 minutes in this playthrough video by YouTuber H20Delirious.)

    If the phrase isn’t ringing any bells, it comes from this video below, itself from another excellent Twitter account, @Bodegacats_, in which an unseen New Yorker gives his authoritative review of one of the city’s feline vagabonds.

    The phrase itself never quite hit full-blown meme status, but it’s recognizable enough for a certain section of the internet. Hell, in our original post about Spider-Cat in October, we
