IT was a cute Halloween shot — the latest in a seemingly endless series of pictures that Brian Austin Green has posted of himself playing the doting single dad to the three young children he shares with his estranged wife, Megan Fox. But when Megan, who split from the actor after 15 years this spring, caught sight of their son Journey, 4, in Brian’s spooky Instagram, she hit the roof. “Why does Journey have to be in this picture?” the 34-year-old ranted in the comments. “It’s not hard to crop them out. Or choose photos that they aren’t in. I had a great halloween [sic] with them yesterday, and yet notice how absent they are from my social media...” She went on to accuse her ex, 47, of trying to create “the pervasive narrative that I’m an absent mother, and you are the perennial, eternally dedicated dad of the year.”

PUBLISHING AMID A PANDEMIC: How Board Games Survived and Thrived in 2020
COVID’s lasting impacts on our health and economy are still far from being understood. It will take many of us years, perhaps even a decade, to unravel what has changed in the last year. But some patterns are emerging, at least in the board gaming hobby, that indicate many publishers were well ahead of the curve even before the threat of a pandemic affected their supply chains worldwide. As the world began locking itself down to quell the threat of COVID-19, people continued to find solace in hobbies. Soon, the business journals and magazines of the world began tracking the increase of sales across a wide swath of interests as people did anything and everything to take their minds away from the weight of a pandemic circling the globe. Turns out, everything from toys, guitars, crafts, and board games were selling well despite a deflated economy. Report Linker’s “Board Games Market - Global Outlook and Forecast 2021-2026” estimates that sales in the hobby will grow by 13 percent in the next five years, even with continued lockdowns. But what about the hobby as a whole? This article examines how 2020 affected the board gaming industry through three facets — big box stores, local board gaming cafes and stores, and the digital space — and how the pandemic has shaped them in the interim as well as moving forward. Is this projected forecast of its growth still as rosy?

SLIDING FOR ADVENTURE
For the last 25 years I’ve been riding off road on everything from a 450cc lightweight to a heavily laden 1200cc adventure motorcycle. Although I was usually able to handle anything through rough terrain at slower speeds, I struggled at higher speeds on loose surfaces. And the biggest pucker moments occurred while approaching tight turns on gravel roads at high speed—barely navigating them safely.
