Apple’s event today was full of hardware and new products, but the company also took some time to have fun by unveiling a new trailer for Ted Lasso ’s second season. The show — which stars Jason Sudeikis as a perpetually positive football coach who takes on a gig helming an English soccer team — has been one of the breakout hits on Apple TV Plus, the company’s fledgling streaming service. I always hear the question: who let the dogs out (who who who who)? With respect to The Baha Men, I prefer WHEN let the dogs out (when when when when)? — Ted Lasso (@TedLasso) April 20, 2021 Season 2 follows Lasso as he leads AFC Richmond during a season of turmoil, with the club recently relegated to a lower league.

No word on whether the controversial European Super League will be a plot point. … [Read more...] about Ted Lasso season 2 is coming in July, and it looks as charming as ever

We have only just moved into May and despite being seven months away from next summer in the southern hemisphere, climate researchers are seeing the beginnings of what could be the most powerful El Niño event since 1997/98. An El Niño is a change in Pacific Ocean and atmosphere that typically causes drought, extreme heat and bushfires in Australia. Last year was a neutral El Niño and we have been surprisingly lucky with only a few small El Niño ’s since the 21st century started, despite having two of the hottest years on record globally in 2005 and 2010 .
