Importantly, Sokoloff’s character was not part of the Baby-Sitters’ Club. Cokie served as an antagonist for the club members, and Sokoloff had the mean-girl cred for the role: She’d previously played Gia, Stephanie Tanner’s bully-turned-buddy on Full House. Since, Sokoloff has appeared in Dude, Where’s My Car? as well as on The Practice, Burn Notice, Melissa & Joey and Grey’s Anatomy. … [Read more...] about 20 Years Later: Where Are They Now?

In addition to the eternal mystery of the phrase “zig-a-zig-ah,” “Wannabe” continues to leave its mark. Noted Spice Girls fan girl Adele crooned the 1996 hit with James Corden on “Carpool Karaoke,” before revealing that she’s a total Ginger Spice. And in 2014, it was rated the most easily recognizable pop song of the last 60 years. Just this week, the ’90s jam was given a 2016 makeover by The Global Goals campaign, which reimagined the girl power anthem as a call to end worldwide injustice against women. The clip, which has received crucial stamps of approval from both Posh and Sporty Spice, features a range of stars from across the globe and has already been viewed more than 46 million times on Facebook alone. … [Read more...] about 20 Years of Girl Power: How the Spice Girls Fought to Keep ‘Wannabe’ Weird
It seems strange that Marvel would continually keep this character around, only to keep her at arm’s length when it comes to power and position in their universe.

Oddly enough, it was around this time that she was featured as a playable character in the widely popular game X-Men: Legends. … [Read more...] about A ‘Jubilee’ 20 Years in the Making: One Character’s Journey
"We are creating an entirely new community of 8,000 homes," said Chris Meany, co-founder of Wilson Meany, which is overseeing development of Treasure Island.

The Supreme Court had decided a challenge brought by the American Civil Liberties Union, which argued that the section of the Communications Decency Act (CDA) at issue could criminalize too broad a swath of speech. The ACLU maintained that the CDA did not define what "indecent" meant and that the law would dumb-down the Internet in the same manner as the censorship requirements imposed on broadcasters that transmit over public spectrum. The ACLU won its case on June 26, 1997. The decision, in conjunction with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and other surviving parts of the CDA, has provided one of the strongest legal tools for crafting today's Internet as we know it. … [Read more...] about How 7 words unfit for TV fostered an open Internet 20 years ago today
