Orson Scott Card was the first ever author to win back-to-back Hugo and Nebula Awards with Ender's Game and Speaker of the Dead. With an impressive collection of books, plays, and short stories in his repertoire, in recent years Scott Card has expanded his Ender universe to the big screen with the 2013 film adaption of Ender's Game starring Harrison Ford, Asa Butterfield, and Ben Kingsley, and now with BYUtv's new sci-fi series, Extinct.
Four hundred years after the extinction of the human race, a small group of humans is revived on the earth by an alien civilization. The aliens claim they want to restore the humanity, but the "reborn" humans uncover new dangers, hidden agendas, and powerful secrets that challenge and threaten to annihilate the species once again.
Men only drink beer and women only drink wine. Right? Wrong.
Arrow actor Stephen Amell and longtime friend Andrew Harding stand behind the ideology that dudes can still be dudes and drink wine. In 2012 they created Nocking Point Wines, a winery located in Walla Walla Valley, now home to the popular tri-monthly subscription box service The Wine Club.
Editor's Note from Omni, 1989:
On my corner, the drug guys hang out cracking (which in this context means trading insults) until launched to the pay phone by their beeping pagers. Current fashion dictates that you clip these in the bottom crook of pants pockets.
Star Wars fans have been anticipating the release of the new The Last Jedi trailer since the rolling credits of The Force Awakens appeared on the big screen. Unfortunately, Disney took their time and they made us wait – more than one year –for the trailer. Fortunately, we had Rogue One and a few Untitled Han Solo Film photographs released. All I have to say is, thank goodness Disney didn't wait until May The Fourth to release the trailer. I wouldn't be able to go another month until knowing who The Last Jedi is (or, are). Since The Force Awakens premiered in December 2015, fans have speculated over the lineage of Rey, the fate of Han, the mysteries surrounding Luke, and who the hell the Last Jedi is (Is Jedi plural? Is it Luke? Is it Rey?).

Exposed inquisitive exploration—that is what it means to travel the world, and in my case, solo; where experiencing different cultures, customs, nuances, and beliefs are a day to day learning experience and way of life.
