Indiana governor plans to 'clarify' religious objections law

Thousands of opponents of Indiana Senate Bill 101, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, gathered on the lawn of the Indiana State House to rally against that legislation Saturday, March 28, 2015.

Relive the N64 glory days and play this browser-based Super Mario 64 re-creation

The Nintendo 64 remains my favorite console for a variety of reasons, even though it’s been over 18 years since its North American release. If you have a similar affinity for the N64, you’ll want to check this out: A developer named Roystan Ross created a fully playable re-creation of the first level to Super Mario 64.

The Super Mario 64 revival serves as a demonstration for Ross’s Super Character Controller project for Unity. Ross worked to make it a fairly faithful re-creation, but he left out “some really minor stuff that nobody cared about like red coins or the Wing Cap or the Big Bob-omb,”  and replaced them with “crowd pleasers like giant springs and coin blocks.”

What Women Want in Women Characters
Women Characters Redesigned by Women SFF Artists
As I said, I'm going to be discussing this at length in my next post. For now, I'm going to give you a flood of examples of women characters in fantasy art — many infamous for being depictions unwelcoming to women — that have been redesigned by the professional artists in the Women in Fantasy Illustration group. Each woman's point of view is different, and the redesigns reveal what is most important to that woman, whether it's realistic body armor, or it's making sure the woman has a narrative and agency of her own. There is no one right way to depict a woman character, and it is not as simple as "cover her up more" because, as you'll see, some of these redesigns are sexier than the original. And I have found through my own work that you CAN absolutely have a single depiction of a character that is sexy and empowering to all genders. As I said, more on that next post.

Chrome OS beta has a new Launcher—and it looks suspiciously like Google Now

Anyone who has used Android can attest to the usefulness of Google Now: After all, it conveniently presents useful bits of timely information—weather, traffic, news headlines, and so on—in a clear, easy-to-parse manner. Chrome OS users will soon be able to join the fun, though: According to Google’s François Beaufort, Google Now functionality will make its way into the upcoming Chrome Launcher 2.0.

“This new launcher is the best way to start new activities on Chrome OS, like performing a Google search or launching apps,” Beaufort wrote in a post on Google+. “Search has been enhanced to help you find what you are looking for faster, apps you most often use right have been put at your fingertips, and the power of Google Now has been brought to your Chromebook.”

Indiana governor defends religious freedom law

Demonstrators gather to protest a controversial religious freedom bill in Indianapolis

By Alina Selyukh WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Indiana Governor Mike Pence on Sunday defended a new state law that opponents worry may support discrimination against gay people, saying he had no plans to add extra protections but would consider new suggestions from state legislators. Pence, speaking on ABC's "This Week," sought to counter criticism from protesters who have spilled onto the streets of Indianapolis and others, including some corporations, after signing the Religious Freedom Restoration Act on Thursday. "It does not apply to disputes between individuals, unless government action is involved." Supporters say the law, which was passed overwhelmingly by the Republican-led state legislature, will keep the government from forcing business owners to act against their strongly held religious beliefs. The Indiana law has drawn criticisms from companies such as Angie's List Inc and Wal-Mart Stores Inc , tech industry chiefs including openly gay Apple Inc CEO Tim Cook, and the White House.

PM: 'Dangerous accord' with Iran worse than Israel feared

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu renews his denunciations of an Iranian nuclear deal

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday denounced as "dangerous" a nuclear accord that world powers are negotiating with Iran, saying it goes beyond what his government had feared. "The dangerous accord which is being negotiated in Lausanne (Switzerland) confirms our concerns and even worse," Netanyahu said in remarks at a meeting of his cabinet broadcast on public radio. The premier warned that Iran could be in a position to "conquer" the Middle East through what he called the "axis" of control it has over the capitals of Iraq, Lebanon and Syria. Netanyahu angered the White House when he addressed a joint session of the Congress to warn against a nuclear deal with Iran in the lead-up to Israel's March 17 general election.
