Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

Naruhito is now officially the Emperor of Japan, following the abdication of his father, Akihito.

His succession to the Chrysanthemum throne marks the end of the Heisei era and the beginning of the Reiwa era.

It looks as though the fire may have had something to do with renovations at the cathedral.

Imagine being the construction company that burned down Notre Dame.

This is Spike Lee's first nomination, which is unbelievable.
It's his first for Best Director, but he was nominated for Best Documentary for Four Little Girls.

Certain other boardies with specific avatars will have a different opinion of course.

Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

Maybe the academy should just have a host-less Oscars show this year. Few people seem willing to host it, and I think the host plays a big part in why the shows are so damn long.

I don't know if Jeopardy cares about the Golden Globes, but the nominees were announced today.

"Vice", the Dick Cheney biopic starring Christian Bale, lead the film nominations with six.

I knew who the Final Jeopardy was referring to, but I couldn't remember for the life of me what her name was. I ended up blurting out "flag lady" before the music ended.

RIP to the great Stan Lee, creator of Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk and many other comic characters. He was 95 years old.

The Boston Red Sox are the 2018 World Series Champions, 1st baseman Steve Pearce is named Most Valuable Player.

:D :D :D
It's probably also worth mentioning that the Red Sox' first-year manager, Alex Cora, is the first MLB manager from Puerto Rico to win a World Series.

Welp, we've entered the bi-annual period where I have to DVR Jeopardy and watch it later so I can skip the political ads.
