Here are a few things in news, entertainment and pop culture that caught our eye recently.
■ Encyclopaedia Britannica discontinues its print edition and goes completely digital. This certainly will make it easier on those door-to-door salesmen.
■ Two members of a Russian feminist punk rock band face up to seven years in jail for “hooliganism” in connection with a protest against Vladimir Putin. Hooliganism: a crime in Moscow, just a routine Saturday night here.
■ The Palms announces that the resort’s Playboy Club will close after six years. The rabbit head logo sheds a tiny, but still dapper, tear.
■ A Utah woman celebrates her 101st birthday by tandem-paragliding, saying she was prompted to do it because her 75-year-old son took up the hobby. We’d love to see what “games” this family “plays” at its Fourth of July picnic.
