True crime dramas are frequently engaging but don’t necessarily make for the easiest viewing experience. Shock, grief, and anger usually get involved as you watch the story unravel. 

All of these feelings are escalated in Netflix’s Delhi Crime. The seven-episode first season (which is mostly in English, with subtitled scenes in Hindi) is based on a real-life incident that took place in 2012 in India's capital of New Delhi – the horrific gang-rape of a physiotherapy intern on a moving...

Can Clemson land 5-star edge rusher Myles Murphy out of Atlanta?

It will take relationships, academics, and scheme fit to sign the five-star.

ATLANTA — Myles Murphy is a special football player. Out of Powder Springs (Ga.) Hillgrove near Atlanta, Murphy checks in at 6’5 and 260 pounds. And yet, he says schools are recruiting him to play on the edge, be it as a JACK linebacker or defensive end.

In praise of the weeklong social media break

Perhaps your phone has delivered your weekly Screen Time report and you know, in your heart, that it's time to take a break from social media. This is good. A little break is nice every now and then.

But you don't need to embark on a full 30-day screen-free detox every time you overdo it on Twitter. Instead, consider a weeklong break. Yes, just seven days. Will it irrevocably change your habits? Probably not. But a valuable break doesn't have to.

Crucially, you do not have to announce that...

MoviePass parent’s CEO discusses the service’s rocky year

In the space of a few months, MoviePass went from being the hottest startup on the block to a cautionary tale about growing too big, too fast.

It changed its subscription plans repeatedly, while a service outage found its parent company, Helios and Matheson Analytics, asking creditors for a $5 million loan.

I posted that question to Twitter a week ago, and the most notable response was the response that did not exist: not a single person disputed the premise of the question. Yes, Twitter responses are obviously...
