“Parler’s site was a mess. Its public API used no authentication. When users deleted their posts, the site failed to remove the content and instead only added a delete flag to it. Oh, and each post carried a numerical ID that was incremented from the ID of the most recently published one.

The rookie code made it easy to automate the scraping, as this script used by donk_enby’s archival team demonstrates. As a result, massive numbers of posts that discussed the insurrection before, during, and after it was carried out will be preserved indefinitely so that they’re available to researchers, journalists, prosecutors, and others.

Another amateur mistake was Parler’s failure to scrub geolocations from images and videos posted online.”

Mac Jones’s passing line pretty much sums it up: 36 for 45, 464 yards, 5 TDs. DeVonta Smith caught three touchdowns in the first half – among 12 receptions for 215 yards. According to ESPN Stats & Information research, Smith had more TDs and total yards than Ohio State’s entire offense. Smith and Jones finished #1 and #3 in the Heisman voting.

It could have been worse. Alabama had scored 52 with 13 minutes left, but chose to eat up the clock. Final score 52-24.

‘Bama averaged more than 48 points per game, about the same as last year’s LSU powerhouse.

A summary of this year’s winners and … well, links to every other year’s as well.

Kate Winslet first appeared on the list in 1996 for her performance in Jude, and she’s still going strong. That’s a full quarter of a century, during which she appeared on the list nine times.

From 1996 to 2008, she appeared on the list more frequently than anyone else – eight times in just thirteen years:

96 Jude #2
97 Titanic #8
98 Hideous Kinky #17
99 Holy Smoke #14
00 Quills #12
02 Iris #10
06 Little Children #13
08 The Reader #13

She hasn’t been in contention since then – until this year when she cunningly teamed up with Saoirse Ronan for a quite explicit sapphic encounter that lifted her to the very top of the list. It’s fair to say that the vote is really for Saoirse, but it’s impossible not to root for Winslet. She has done more for screen nudity than any other distinguished actress of her generation. Kate not only gets naked on film, but has consistently urged other actresses to do the same, not just with her example, but in words as well.
