The first season of The Marvelous Mrs Maisel was nothing short of fantastic. And, if you're anything like me, you can scarcely hide your excitement for the next season of this truly wonderful show. 

So, what's in store for Midge in the next season? Rachel Brosnahan told Jimmy Fallon what to expect. "Season One mostly followed Midge's journey down this brand new path, she's trying her hand at stand-up comedy. She's finding her voice," says Brosnahan.

"In Season Two we find her sitting on this giant secret. Nobody knows that she's trying this thing that she's got no business doing, as far as anyone else is concerned." Read more...

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 11/28/2018 - 11:33

It's the most wonderful time of year. And that means, every street corner will be looking like Santa's Little Helpers have puked up twinkly lights and inflatable holiday characters. 

One road in Cambridgeshire, UK, fell foul of the festive cheer after an inflatable santa got loose and blew onto a road, causing traffic pandaemonium.

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 11/28/2018 - 10:45

Discovering that your kid has swallowed Lego is pretty annoying as a parent, but these researchers did the same thing in the name of science.

The study, published in the Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health, had six paediatric professionals from a group called Don't Forget The Bubbles swallow a Lego head to see how long it would take for it to pass through their body.

Learn Python for cheap: Shop online classes on sale

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 11/28/2018 - 10:00

One fateful day in December 1989, motivated by the sheer overcomplexity of existing programming languages, Guido van Rossum set out to build his own. He wanted it to be clean and easy to read, as well as open source so users could play a part in its development. And so he set out to do some programming magic and eventually came up with what we know today as Python.

On top of being one of the fastest growing programming languages of 2018, Python is also predicted to dethrone Java as the lingua franca of coding — and for good reason. Its incredible versatility allows it to be the driving force behind many widely-used applications. Netflix uses it for curating suggested viewing, Spotify for helping you discover new bands, and Instagram for, well, everything. Read more...

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 11/28/2018 - 02:44

The question over whether loot boxes constitute as gambling keeps popping up.

Australia's government could be the latest set to investigate the gaming feature, after a Senate committee recommended a "comprehensive review" of loot boxes in a report released Tuesday.

SEE ALSO: Labeling loot boxes as 'gambling' isn't just dangerous for EA. It's dangerous for gamers, too.

One of the committee's chairs, The Greens senator Jordon Steele-John, is behind the push for a wider look into the feature and whether they could pose any gambling-related harm, especially to children.
