Sunday Link-Off: Hey Now! You’re an All-Star!

emily-ratajkowski-svedka16-02Well, I don’t know about the rest of you but I’ve had a busy couple of weeks. I’m sure you’ve noticed that by the content on the blog. I’m still playing Rise of the Tomb Raider for review. I’ve started writing my Until Dawn review as promised on the last podcast. I’m also doing a story on the Fine Bros react bullshit and will run that on here because it’s a big deal to the YouTube world. So I’m still writing but it’ll be a bit hit and miss.

Anyway, it’s Sunday which means that you’re here for the links. Let’s kick things off with Emily Ratajkowsi.

Another charity has been accused of being a waste. Wounded Warriors has been accused of blowing millions on admin expenses and executive. (CBS News)

Saudi Arabia is supposed to be helping matters in the Middle East but a UN report says that they’re busy bombing civilians when they’re supposed to be fighting rebels in Yemen. (The Guardian)

Add the World Bank to groups who don’t see a benefit to the TPP. They say that the Trans-Pacific Partnership will have a minimal impact on Canada, Australia and the US. Oops. (Tech Dirt)

Good news, Canada! Snow shoveling is probably going to kill you. (Atlas Obscura)

The Swiss will be voting on a new measure for the government to provide all citizens an unconditional universal basic income of CHF 2,500 per month.  It’s an interesting idea but I think the application is a little too broad. Now, if they treated it like a universal minimum salary rather than that in everyone’s pockets regardless, that would be a proposal I could get behind. (The Independent)

NHL All-Star John Scott talks about his journey to the All-Star Game. (The Players’ Tribune)

On that note, the NHL has to figure out if the All-Star Game is supposed to be fun or super serial. (Winging It In Motown)

Shinsuke Nakamura is on his way from New Japan Pro Wrestling to WWE. He’s best known for being one of the most dangerous strikers in NJPW. How do strong style wrestlers work without killing someone? (Fightland)

The Yukon’s Health and Human Services department has a new ad campaign to encourage you to get out in the sun. Unfortunately, they didn’t run the slogan by anyone under the age of 70. (Ad Week)

What did people do during the recent winter storm in the US? Watch porn. That’s not info from Porn Hub for once. It’s from an internet security firm who noted a spike in malware reports. (Daily Dot)

Formula One coverage returns to the blog tomorrow. We’ll be recapping the Pirelli wet tyre test at the Paul Ricard Circuit. Ahead of that, here is a look at the best radio messages from the 2015 F1 season. McLaren features prominently.
