Last Saturday, police in Chico, California reported that 13 people in the same house were involved in a mass drug overdose, possibly involving the powerful opioid fentanyl, with at least one person dying as a result.

The case is tragic, though some of the details reported by the Chico police and uncritically repeated by the media reinforce a myth about the dangers of accidental exposure to fentanyl — and this stoking of unnecessary panic could put people at risk if first responders become too afraid to make physical contact with a suspected overdose victim.

Gotham’s dysfunctional villains have been so interesting to watch develop because the show introduces each of them at various stages in their journeys to becoming part of the classic Batman rogues’ gallery we’re all familiar with.

Last year’s Suspiria, one of the biggest horror releases of the year, was a remake of a classic 1977 horror flick by the legendary Dario Argento. As for Argento’s thoughts on the remake, directed by Luca Guadagnino? Well. Uh.

And for a little as $US60 ($83), the Smart Pen’s silly gimmickry doesn’t really exceed its price.

Apps! They’re everywhere! Even Pope Francis is endorsing them. On Sunday, the pontiff touted an app called ClickToPray ahead of the World Youth Day festival in Panama.

Last year was not great for Facebook’s embattled chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg—particularly after it was revealed that she personally requested information on vocal Facebook critic George Soros after he publicly deemed the company as a “menace.” But Soros conspiracy ordeal notwithstanding, the company she’s partly responsible for running experienced the most disastrous year in its history.
