  6. SAVE $174: As of Jan. 19, the Sunny Health and Fitness Magnetic Rowing Machine is on sale at Amazon for $224.99 instead of its usual $399. That's a savings of 44%. Treadmills and ellipticals are all well and good, but rowing machines have been gaining traction in the home fitness realm lately, and for good reason: They provide a full-body workout that's a good combination of strength training and cardio, with little stress to your joints. Done properly, rowing can even promote better posture. The only downsides to having a rowing machine? Size and price. The Sunny Health and Fitness Magnetic Rowing Machine doesn't do much to alleviate the first concern (though it does fold over for upright storage when not in use). If you have the space, though, it sure is a bargain. The machine features an LCD monitor that keeps tabs on your workout, with numbers denoting time, count, calories, total count, and scan. The extra-long slide rail can be adjusted to suit people of any height. Its magnetic resistance is also adjustable, so you can customize the intensity of your workout.

It comes from Uwade, a 21-year-old singer born in Nigeria and raised in North Carolina, who happens to be the first voice you hear on Fleet Foxes’ 2020 opus Shore. Uwade released her debut 7″ last year while finishing up undergrad at Columbia, and now she’s back with a tender, entrancing new track called “Do You See The Light Around Me?” Uwade produced it with Brad Cook, who has done great work with their fellow North Carolina musician Indigo De Souza with a similar blend of pop and indie elements.

  11. PRICE HIKES INCOMING: Peloton will begin charging its Bike and Tread customers an extra $250+ for delivery and setup starting Jan 31. On the plus side, you'll get a free two-month trial of the Peloton app (a $79.98 value) if you order a machine before Jan. 31 to avoid the new fee. Attention, all wannabe Peloton Wives: You've got until the end of the month before the notoriously expensive spin bike and its treadmill counterpart get even more so. Peloton will soon tack on an extra delivery and setup fee for its flagship Bike and Tread due to "inflation," the company announced this week. That service is currently included in the machines' prices but will cost an extra $250 and $350 (respectively) starting Jan. 31, bumping the Bike up to $1,745 and the Tread up to $2,845. Meanwhile, the premium Bike+ will keep its original price of $2,495. SEE ALSO: Score a free iPad when you upgrade your home gym with Echelon fitness equipment While the Tread has always sat around $2,500 until now, real heads know that price changes aren't anything new for the original Bike. Peloton slashed its cost twice during the pandemic, first from $2,245 to $1,895 upon the release of the Bike+ in September 2020, then a further $400 to $1,495 last fall in an attempt to appeal to more customers. In other words, Peloton's new pricing won't be its highest ever (at least for the Bike). But it'll still suck to know you could've gotten your machine for hundreds of dollars less had you just placed your order a little sooner. Buy a Bike or Tread anytime between now and Jan. 30 to avoid the new upcharges. That hustle will also earn you a free two-month trial of the Peloton app (a $79.98 value), which unlocks its massive library of live and on-demand workout classes.

  12. I think she's right, and I like that she doesn't keep quiet about it but speaks her mind. A friend of mine suffered because she used pot in large quantities, which caused her to overdose. Good thing she didn't have time to try more potent drugs before we enrolled her in a course from theluckiestclub.com. I think it would have been a lot harder for us to talk her out of her addiction. Because I don't think drugs or alcohol can make your life better. Everything is in your hands now, and only you can create your destiny. So if you want to live a good and happy life, you need to try to do your best for this.

  14. February is almost here, meaning it's almost time for Netflix to roll out new original movies and TV shows for us to binge. New Netflix originals include Tall Girl 2 and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a sequel to the horror classic that brought us Leatherface. Other, films joining the Netflix catalog include The Exorcist, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and The Dark Knight. On the TV front, get ready for Shondaland's Inventing Anna, Season 2 of Love is Blind (as well as spin-off Love is Blind Japan), and The Cuphead Show! Here's everything coming to Netflix in February 2022. Top pick: Murderville Detective Terry Seattle is on the case. Credit: Lara Solanki/Netflix Meet Terry Seattle (Will Arnett), your new favorite grizzled homicide detective. Every day, Terry partners up with a new celebrity guest to solve a murder case. But it wouldn't be a whodunit without a killer twist, and Murderville has a big one: None of the celebrities have a script. Instead, each guest has to improvise alongside Terry on their way to catch a killer. The result is a madcap romp through crime scene after crime scene. Joining Arnett in Murderville are guest stars Annie Murphy, Conan O'Brien, Ken Jeong, Kumail Nanjiani, Marshawn Lynch, and Sharon Stone. How to watch: Murderville hits Netflix Feb. 3.

  17. Enlarge / Apple has stopped providing security updates to iOS 14. (credit: Andrew Cunningham) When iOS 15 was first unveiled, Apple announced that the upgrade wouldn't be mandatory for people who wanted to stick with iOS 14. The new operating system would still be offered to every device that could run it, but iOS 14 would keep getting security updates so that people wouldn't be left vulnerable just because they were happy with the performance and stability of the OS they were already running. But last week, 9to5Mac and others noticed that the iOS 14.8.1 update had stopped being offered to phones running iOS 14. The only upgrade option was for the latest version of iOS 15, currently 15.2.1. We've confirmed with Apple that this isn't an error; iOS 14 is no longer being updated, and anyone who wants the latest security updates will also need to accept the other changes in iOS 15. Apple told Ars that it always intended the iOS 14 security update option to be temporary. Essentially, people could have a short grace period while Apple worked out the worst of the new operating system's early bugs, but you would always eventually have to upgrade to stay patched.

  21. Cordae is a good rapper. Cordae has always been a good rapper, and “good rapper” has always been Cordae’s chief sales pitch. When Cordae first emerged from internet obscurity three and a half years ago, he seemed to be an exceptional type of good rapper. Back then, he was known as YBN Cordae, and his affiliation with the rest of the young-and-viral YBN Crew placed him within an insurgent SoundCloud-rap wave. In that context, Cordae’s twisty technical flows and writerly precision stood out. But now that he’s released his second major-label rap album, Cordae’s whole context has changed, and so has his presentation. These days, Cordae is still rapping well, but he’s channeled all that good rapping into securing a permanent place on awards-show nomination lists. Cordae is a prestige-rapper now.

  23. In the past few days, the world has witnessed the extremely contentious breakup of Every Time I Die, the Buffalo metalcore band that had been going strong for more than 20 years. Longtime singer Keith Buckley had apparently reached a breaking point with the rest of the band, including his guitarist brother Jordan. Over the weekend, Jordan and fellow guitarist Andy Williams both posted a statement claiming that Keith had cut off all communication with the rest of the band and the that band was now completely finished. Keith responded by tweeting a scan of a cease-and-desist letter that he’d gotten from the rest of the band. Today, Keith has shared a longer statement about his own side of this sordid saga.

  24. Welcome to Fix It, our series examining projects we love — save for one tiny change we wish we could make. Emily in Paris Season 2, episode 4, minute 16: That is when The Sip occurs. It is at this precise moment I fell out of love with series regular Gabriel and had my experience of Netflix's French fantasy forever changed. I'll regale you of the revolting incident that led to our unceremonious split, but be warned: You cannot unknow this. I remember fawning over the TV hottie (played by actor Lucas Bravo) like it was yesterday. Gabriel is designed to inspire audience crushes, of course. The hunky restaurateur, known for his coy smile, sexy hair, and refined taste in cast iron skillets, enchanted many as the flirty friend of the titular Emily (Lily Collins) throughout Emily in Paris Season 1. But more than filling a trope, Gabriel is the exact type of lovable himbo that butters my personal favorite flavor of rom-com croissant. He's charming, but not intimidating; sweet, but not saccharine; a leading love interest who knows just how over-the-top wonderful to be before shit gets unbelievable. His and Emily's secret first kiss? I mean, come on. Still, Gabriel's perfectly-imperfect-perfectness passed the point of acceptability for me when he went to apologize to Camille (Camille Razat) in the Season 2 episode "Jules and Em." I take no issue with the impetus for the visit; Gabriel betrayed Camille by hooking up with Emily and an apology was overdue. Rather, it's what he did on his way to make the apology that shook me to my core — and seriously turned my stomach. At the 16:29 time stamp, we see Gabriel walk into an art gallery to meet Camille. There are visitors holding glasses of white wine as far as the eye can see. Approaching the room where Camille is, Gabriel stops in front of a waiter holding a tray of three identical, wine-filled glasses. Silently, Gabriel takes one. He sips it, steeling himself against the confrontation to come. Then, as if possessed by some supernaturally unsanitary force, he puts it back. Behold: Via Giphy It's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it kind of moment, but miss it I did not. Immediately upon seeing this horror play out in the middle of my Emily in Paris binge, I rewound. Over and over, I watched Gabriel taint the rim of this perfectly good wine glass. And over and over, I watched the waiter holding the tray do nothing about it. The glass just sits there, a sleeper cell of tannins and someone else's spit. What's worse, Gabriel seems to know what he's done is revolting — making long, confusing eye contact with the unfazed server before wandering away. There are a million reasons this troubles me within the universe of Emily in Paris. For starters, it's nasty and could get someone sick. (The show doesn't acknowledge the IRL pandemic, but other germs exist!) It's also utterly incongruous with who Gabriel is as a character. This man is a culinary expert, presumably well-versed in not just the preparation of food but the polite consumption of it. He would know not to do this. (For reference, if you ever find yourself at a cocktail hour with a glass you would like to get rid of, the broadly accepted etiquette is to leave it politely on an empty serving tray or at an unoccupied seating area.) Outside of the world of Emily in Paris, it just plain old annoys me. I'm nitpicking, yes. But this show, the glorious trash fire that it is, sucks me in every time I cue it up, and thoughtless moments like this make me feel silly for caring about its story and characters. Ensuring actors' blocking makes sense is essential to selling any scene, yet here no one could be bothered. So I got totally sucked out of the story. Let Gabriel take the glass with him or skip the wine altogether. Just, for the love of France, don't make him put it back. Emily in Paris is now streaming on Netflix. View the full article
  25. In what might be one of the nerdiest film references from scientists to date, Jeff Daniels now has a parasitic worm named after him. Newly discovered by scientists at the University of California, Riverside, the "Tarantobelus jeffdanielsi" is a nematode capable of killing tarantulas. The name is a nod to the 1990 classic horror-comedy, Arachnophobia, in which Daniels starred. With research published in the Journal of Parasitology, scientists claim this nematode — a microscopic worm-like organism, some of which act as parasites — is only the second ever found to infect tarantulas. In Frank Marshall's '90s film, Daniels' character, Ross Jennings, faces attacks from a new species of deadly arachnids in the small town of Canaima, California. "His character in the film is a spider killer, which is exactly what these nematodes are," UC Riverside parasitologist and lead researcher Adler Dillman told the university's news site. But in this case, it's the clearly worms that are the villain. And look at it: Behold, Tarantobelus jeffdanielsi. Credit: Adler Dillman / UCR Informed of the discovery and its title, Daniels offered up the perfect response for someone who's had a worm named after them. "When I first heard a new species of nematode had been named after me, I thought, 'Why? Is there a resemblance?'" Daniels told UCR. "Honestly, I was honored by their homage to me and Arachnophobia. Made me smile. And of course, in Hollywood, you haven’t really made it until you’ve been recognized by those in the field of parasitology." Not pictured: The actual scientists involved with the discovery. Credit: Moviestore / Shutterstock According to the university, the study began in 2019 when lead researcher Dillman was contacted by a tarantula breeder whose spiders had been plagued by infection. Study found these to be nematodes, heralding a particularly nasty plight for the spiders. Infection from the jeffdanielsi worms was found to be lethal, with the parasitic creatures only inhabiting the tarantulas' mouths (!) and paralyzing the organs that work a tarantula's fangs. Meaning the tarantualas were dying of starvation. "It may take months because tarantulas don't have to eat particularly often. However, if they get this infection, they will die of starvation," Dillman told UCR. "It isn't clear that the nematodes feed on the spider itself. It’s possible that they feed on bacteria that live on the tarantulas." SEE ALSO: There's officially a snake named after Salazar Slytherin now They've yet to discover how exactly the worms are able to control the tarantula's fang organs and stop them eating (again, what). The researchers have discovered how the jeffdanielsi worms reproduce, being mostly self-fertilizing, and that a single worm can produce 160 babies over its 11-day lifespan.
