I know nothing about basketball. And yet every year for the past seven years, I’ve participated in an NCAA pool. I make my decisions based on mascot vs mascot match ups. Some people this this is easy: bear would beat ram, etc. It’s actually quite complicated.
Here are some of the ground rules:
On this episode of the podcast: Publishing is a predominately female staffed business. As that business becomes a digital-first platform, it is running into the world of tech, a historically male centric world. What happens from here and why women still don’t feel confident talking tech are…

This might be the most enticing book description I’ve ever read:
The plot of the manga centers around Kaiman, who does not remember who he was before he was transfigured by a Magic user. This transformation left him with a reptile’s head, and a desire to find out the truth about who he really is. Accompanied by Nikaido, his female companion, he tracks down Magic Users in The Hole and unceremoniously chomps down on their head, hoping to find out who it was that put him in this state.

So Gus walks into Don Eladio’s lair, seemingly unarmed. He brings with him a gift (Jesse) which he uses to bargain with Don Eladio. Don Eladio drops Gus into a trap - the pool party. Mike then pulls our Gustauvo’s secret weapon, the poisoned tequila which turns the tables leading to a battle, their triumph and escape.
