RIP, Professor Stephen Hawking.

Stephen Hawking, the renowned physicist known for his popular work in science, died Wednesday in his Cambridge home. His family told BBC he passed away in peace.

“His passing has left an intellectual vacuum in his wake. But it’s not empty,” Neil deGrasse Tyson tweeted shortly after midnight on Wednesday. “Think of it as a kind of vacuum energy permeating the fabric of spacetime that defies measure. Stephen Hawking, RIP 1942-2018.”

Black-ish Episode About Kneeling Athletes Won’t Be Aired.

There’s an episode of Black-ish that addresses athletes kneeling on the field, which is great! …Except for the fact that it will never be aired. Titled “Please, Baby Please,” the episode was reportedly shot in November and was directed by the show’s creator, Kenya Barris. Due to “creative differences,” however, the episode—which was set to air on February 27—was shelved.

“Given our creative differences, neither ABC nor I were happy with the direction of the episode and mutually agreed not to air it,” Barris told Variety. “Black-ish is a show that has spoken to all different types of people and brought them closer as a community and I’m so proud of the series.”

Wonder what those “creative differences” entailed…. 🤔
