    There is "no compromise" on Brexit that commands majority public support in Britain, with opposition to Prime Minister Theresa May's deal the only point of agreement, a leading pollster said Tuesday. "No procedural or substantive option appears to be both widely popular and capable of bridging the Brexit divide," said the University of Strathclyde's John Curtice. "The problem with Brexit is that the centre ground of politics is rather thinly populated," he said, presenting a report entitled "Brexit and Public Opinion 2019" in London.

As a civil libertarian, it’s my opinion that we still have a long way to go — and putting Kamala Harris in the White House would not be a step in the right direction.

  • Iowa's 'fetal heartbeat' abortion ban ruled unconstitutional news

    Iowa's Republican-controlled legislature passed the restriction in May 2018, outlawing the procedure after a fetal heartbeat is detected, often at six weeks and before a woman realizes she is pregnant. In the ruling, posted online, District Court Judge Michael Huppert wrote, "It is undisputed that such cardiac activity is detectable well in advance of the fetus becoming viable." A fetus that is viable outside the womb, usually at 24 weeks, is widely considered the threshold in the United States to prohibit an abortion. The district court decision is a victory for supporters of abortion rights, but abortion opponents have vowed to take the fight to Iowa's appellate courts, the Des Moines Register and other media reported.

  • Hulu dropped the price of its standard plan right after Netflix raised its prices

    In what is either an incredibly timely coincidence or an intentional act of aggression, Hulu announced on Wednesday that it is cutting the price of its standard plan down from $7.99 to $5.99 on February 26th. Hulu has previously lowered the price of this plan, but always as part of a temporary promotion. This appears to be permanent. The "No Ads" plan will remain at its current price of $11.99, as will the $12.99 Hulu/Spotify combo plan. Hulu's announcement comes just days after Netflix unveiled the biggest price increase in the history of the streaming service. Netflix's popular standard plan (HD video and two streams at once) jumped from $10.99 to $12.99, while the basic plan was bumped up by a dollar and the premium plan increased by two dollars. Netflix and Hulu, despite the fact that both have invested a significant amount into original programming, are markedly different services. That said, seeing the price of the standard plan on one increase while the other goes down may be enough to convince a few new subscribers to take a chance on the cheaper service. Unfortunately, it's not all good news for Hulu subscribers, as the Hulu + Live TV plan is actually going to be subjected to a price hike as well. Starting on February 26th, the live TV plan (which also includes 85,000+ episodes of television and thousands of films on demand) will rise from $39.99 to $44.99. A $5 increase is nothing to sneeze at, but it is worth noting that no other live TV service can offer the same on demand library as Hulu. As a peace offering of sorts for live TV customers, Hulu is also dropping the price of the Enhanced Cloud DVR add-on (which bumps cloud storage up to 200 hours from 50 hours) and the Unlimited Screens add-on from $14.99 to $9.99, respectively. It's not much, but it should balance out the price hike for some live TV subscribers
