Disneynature’s Penguins Melts Hearts and Expectations

Unforgiving ice and snow bombard the Antarctic tundra. After this storm, the plain is desolate—lifeless. Suddenly, a beak breaks through the blanket of snow. Against all odds, Adeline the penguin has survived, with an egg in tact underneath her. This is not just a showing of survival, it is a display of resilience. Disneynature’s Penguins...

Champions League Reactions: Semifinal First Leg

We got two very different semifinals this week, but I personally wasn’t all that surprised by anything that happened. So let’s take a look, shall we?
