Illustration by Luis G. Rendon/The Daily BeastSince the first film debuted in 2004, the Saw franchise has become infamous for its brutality. To many of the franchise’s fans though, the precarity of life is what allows the story to give way to a franchise about found family and queerness. And despite the story of Saw originally coming to a close in 2010—despite two recent “sequels,” the newly released Saw X is the first canonical entry since then—a younger, queer, and very online audience is refr

The yield on Germany's 10-year government bond was little changed on Tuesday, holding close to last week's 12-year high as policymakers continue to rule out interest rate cuts in the face of stubbornly high inflation. On Monday, the European Central Bank's vice president Luis de Guindos told the Financial Times it was premature to start talking about rate cuts, while the central bank's chief economist Philip Lane on Tuesday said wages were keeping up domestic inflation. U.S. policymakers have sounded even more hawkish, suggesting rate hikes could still be needed to bring inflation back down to the 2% target and that policy will need to stay restrictive for some time.

STORY: Ruth Bader Ginsburg is officially 'stamped' in American history as an iconThe US Postal Service unveiled a stamp to honor the late Supreme Court justice[Roman Martinez IV / Chairman, USPS Board of Governors] “The one particular thing that I admired was her ability to persevere, her ability to fight for what she believed in, but to do it so in a civil way. As she said, ‘You can disagree without being disagreeable’. In a time of sharp divisions in our country, we need more of that Ginsburg spirit. And as we Americans use her forever stamp, let us hope we forever remember what binds us together as a nation.”Ginsburg became the second woman ever on the bench in 1993She was hailed as a champion for gender equality and other liberal causes[Kim Sajet / Director, Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery] “Ruth Bader Ginsburg was extraordinary because she did not only create his story, history, but also her story. She inspired other women to fight for their independence, demonstrate their intelligence, and questioned the status quo to be, well, badly behaved or notorious. The kind of woman who was noticed and seen literally making positive change.”Ginsburg's granddaughter says she was a regular letter writer[Clara Spera / Granddaughter of Ruth Bader Ginsburg]"She had a penchant for sending handwritten snail mail letters. I always looked forward to receiving her birthday cards in the mail. My favorite from my fourth birthday, which featured a drawing of Bubbe and Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, surrounded by music notes and the lyrics to the Happy Birthday song. Inside the card, it simply said ‘From the Supremes’.”
