Dirty water, Diana, and Elián González

- Nearly 30 years ago, Flint, Mich., had the dubious honor of being the focus of Michael Moore’s lacerating documentary about the ravages of corporate downsizing, “Roger & Me.” Now, as seen in Llewellyn M. Smith’s documentary, “Nova: Poisoned Water,” the city epitomizes the perils of environmental pollution and a deteriorating infrastructure. In 2014, economically ravaged Flint decided to save money by switching the source of its water from Lake Huron to the Flint River

Hollywood's hacking pains are bigger than movie leaks

- Piracy is a long-running and even routine issue for Hollywood, whether it's street vendors hawking bootleg DVDs on street corners or video uploaded to file-sharing sites like Pirate Bay. Now cybercriminals are also putting embarrassing chatter and other company secrets at risk. The reputational risk from leaked email is much more difficult to calculate than any financial risk from piracy. "In some ways, that risk can be higher because you have no way of knowing what's in those emails," said Erik Rasmussen of Kroll Cyber Security

'Glass Castle' doesn't have happily ever after feel

- If you haven’t seen “Captain Fantastic,” put it at the top of your must-see list. It’s a much better look at an unconventional childhood than “The Glass Castle.” Based on Jeannette Walls’ memoir, “Castle” never shows the joy that could come from life with free-spirited parents.
