even as kobe bryant poured his heart into a retirement letter thanking the game of basketball for giving him so much, he knew he wanted to do more. so after bryant stepped away from the nba last april following 20 stellar seasons and five championships with the los angeles lakers, he made it his mission to bring the letter he titled "dear basketball" to life.

there’s a fair amount riding on wonder woman, dc’s summer blockbuster, for more reasons than just being the first major female superhero movie made. it follows up two divisive entries in the universe, batman v superman: dawn of justice and suicide squad. while successful, the performances of both at the box office and with critics merited re-evaluation by the filmmakers in the form of corporate restructuring and written mea culpas.despite these stumbles, there’s many reasons to be optimistic about wonder woman. gal gadot was well-received as diana prince in batman v superman, it’s set in the past, focusing on one character after two ensemble pictures, and both patty jenkins and geoff johns add directorial and comic credibility, respectively. plus, it’s no small thing that dc fil...

one of the more offbeat tales in a new book written by jackie kennedy’s former personal assistant involves a play date between john f. kennedy jr. and robert chambers, who went on to become the infamous “preppy killer.” in kathy mckeon’s “jackie’s girl: my life with the kennedy family,” she writes that john-john was set up on a play date with the son of a nurse who came to stay with him when jackie was away and he was sick with bronchitis. it was an ill-fated plan, as the kindergarten-age son was much younger than john. despite the nurse’s aggressive efforts to engineer another visit, the family never saw the boy again. at least not until years later, when he showed up on the evening news after killing an 18-year-old girl in central park during what he claimed at the time w...

apparently, public pressure works... to a degree. tesla has reintroduced automatic emergency braking to the model s and model x through an update after their continued omission led consumer reports to lower its ratings for the electric cars. it's a tentative step, mind you. the feature currently only works at speeds up to 28 miles per hour, so this won't save you if someone abruptly slows down on the highway. higher speeds will come in stages, tesla says. it's not clear just when you'll see the 90-mile-per-hour braking that came with models released before october 2016.consumer reports plans to revisit its ratings once it believes the "vast majority" of tesla owners have the update, and should look at scorecards again when higher speed limits arrive. that's no doubt what tesla is hoping fo...
