Webtacular World Issue # 214, January 7, 2018

Greetings Webtaculators! Welcome to 2018, where everything is bett… wait a minute. Nope. Still just as crazy as last year. On to the news.

STORY OF THE WEEK (6 min. read)
What: The Best Things Of 2017
Why: Because we should take time to reflect the good things that happened last year before moving on to this year.

2018 STORY OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: About A Book
Why: Because a book about Donald Trump inevitably sent him further off the rails than usual. Or not, considering he compared “button sizes” regarding the his still very real capability to launch nuclear missiles at whomever he feels like earlier in the week. Happy New Year indeed!

ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: The Fastest Growing Economies
Why: Because the United States’ economic growth performance is below the world’s average. This makes sense, since it is “mature,” but it still is interesting to think about where global investment is headed.

LAW THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: Legal Pot?
Why: Because as the clock struck midnight, Californian stoners rejoiced at finally being able to smoke legally. At least, that is until Sessions threw a wrench in potentially billions of dollars of taxable sales due to his hatred of fun times.

TECH THING OF THE WEEK (8 min. read)
What: Get Ready For A Spectral Meltdown
Why: Because it turns out every single Intel processor made in the last decade or so has been compromised. Whoops. Time to burn all of the computers.

SPORTS THING OF THE WEEK (whatever)
What: FOOOOTBAAAAALL
Why: BECAUSE THE PLAYOFFS OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN THE WORLD ARE HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. THIS INCLUDES THE “AMATEURS.” YOU MUST CARE IF YOU ARE AMERICAN.

WATCHIE THING OF THE WEEK (long read)
What: The Golden Globes
Why: Because there were protests, Seth Meyers roasting sexual harassers, and one of the worst actors ever finally getting his moment.

MUSIC THING OF THE WEEK (just listen)
What: New Music For A New Year
Why: Because Kendrick has new fire, Jay-Z has to hang on to his wife’s coattails to tell a story, and Justin Timberlake is doing… something in the woods?

RADIO THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: A Few Less Things Considered
Why: Because Robert Siegel is retiring.

PHOTOGRAPHY THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
