The Good Place season 4 premiere: inside the show’s moral philosophy lessons - Vox.com

Image
The only time I can remember feeling like a piece of culture was designed for me, specifically, was when I watched the premiere of The Good Place.The NBC show, whose fourth and final season ends Thursday night, was self-recommending: it was by Michael Schur, one of the original writers on The Office who went on to create and run Parks and Recreation and co-create Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The rest of the writing staff was a who’s who of the funniest writers for Parks and a few other extremely funny people, and if that weren’t enough, it starred Kristen Bell and Ted Danson.So far, so good. Then about halfway through the first episode, it started mentioning my college adviser.Eleanor Shellstrop (Bell), upon arriving in heaven (technically known as “the Good Place”), is paired with a “soulmate”: moral philosophy professor Chidi Anagonye (William Jackson Harper).

A Hail Mary For Community Colleges - ForbesA Hail Mary For Community Colleges - ForbesPosted: 31 Jan 2020 05:00 AM PSTGrowing up in Canada, football was a sport that merited so little attention that no one thought it odd that 25% of the teams in the Canadian Football League—two of eight franchises—shared the same name: The Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Ottawa Rough Riders. Such inanity wouldn't pass muster in the U.S. where football receives more scrutiny than any other sport, particularly around the apotheosis of controlled chaos and conspicuous consumption known as the Superbowl. Every social media post, gesture, and play is picked apart, and millions of fans wonder at and/or second guess the intricate strategies devised by overworked, but well compensated coaches and coordinators.Football wasn't always so elaborate. In the early days of the NFL, quarterbacks would call their own plays, not unlike boys on a sandlot. It wasn't until legendary Cleveland coach Paul Brown…
