Another one for true crime show fans: Catching Killers talks to the investigators behind cracking infamous serial killer cases, retelling the harrowing and suspense-filled details of the process of finding these criminals. Season two of the show has just been released, looking at three different cases in the US and Canada. The first looks at BTK, a Kansas serial killer who re-emerges after 30 years of hiding, leading investigators to use DNA technology and garner help from the media to catch their guy. The Phoenix Serial Shooter is another case in the US, in which the killer sees murders as a sport as he targets random pedestrians on the streets. Finally, the Toronto Village Killer gets two episodes which explore how men with similar features were being reported missing in Toronto in a horrific story of cannibalism.

🍕 EAT THIS TONIGHT-

Stop by Pizza Near Me for a slice of deliciousness: The new pizza deli in Arabella Plaza has tray after tray of pizza coming fresh out of the oven all day, serving customers by the slice or by a portion of the tray. The owner has other pizza places in Italy and Malta, but decided to venture into Egyptian bellies with the new food joint. The hot pizza options include staples such as pepperoni, mozzarella funghi, and vegetarian. However, if you want to try something a bit new, go for their eggplant-focused pizza (melanzane) or the tacchino patate mozzarella which has turkey, potatoes, and spicy olive oil. Pizza Near Me also has cold pizzas topped with tuna, salmon, or shrimps. For a sweet treat, you can go for their stuffed Nutella pizza.

The importance of democratizing access to tech: Dignity in a Digital Age, written by US Congressman Ro Khanna, looks at the unequal distribution of tech within the US and the effect it has on people, education, jobs, and the economy. After the pandemic underlined the necessity of tech adoption, it is even more important now to bring in those left behind by the digital revolution, Khanna argues. The book features insights from several political philosophy and economics experts, who alongside Khanna, suggest that the approach of “progressive capitalism,” can help democratize access to tech. While the book is mainly US-focused, it provides a roadmap and policy recommendations on how to fastrack access to tech that can be implemented in countries like Egypt, such as more public and private partnerships.
