Published by
The Street

By Michael Tedder Move over, Chucky. There’s a new killer doll in town. Studios have long used January as a place to burn off films that they know are misfires, often unfunny comedies or schlocky action films that probably won’t work.

But that was before the advent of streaming and internet-based marketing. While giant franchise blockbusters used to be saved for the summer, we’ll be getting a new Marvel film, “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” in February.

Europe’s leaders are younger and less experienced. It probably doesn’t matter

Published by
Euronews (English)

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz is something of a rarity amongst European leaders: aged 64, he has been an elected politician since the 1990s. At meetings of EU heads of government, he cuts an avuncular figure as only Nicos Anastasiades of Cyprus is older. Antonio Costa of Portugal and Klaus Iohannis of Romania are the only other leaders to have blown at least 60 candles on their birthday cakes. Nine of the 27 EU leaders are meanwhile in their forties. One, Finland’s Sanna Marin, has yet to even reach that milestone. According to a 2019 report by Bloomberg, the average age of global leaders has … Read More “Europe’s leaders are younger and less experienced. It probably doesn’t matter”
