Bears quarterback Nick Foles (9) looks for an open receiver during the second quarter against the Buccaneers at Soldier Field.

The two schedule additions will debut Wednesday on Marquee, the TV platform launched as primary home of Cubs baseball earlier this year by the team and Sinclair Broadcast Group.

“Bear Essentials” is slated for 7 p.m., followed at 7:30 p.m. by the abridged version of the Bears’ 20-19 victory over the Buccaneers from six nights earlier with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman on the call.

Typically, Marquee said, the Bears shows will run on Tuesday evenings.

Twitter on Friday announced changes that it hopes will limit the spread of disinformation surrounding the 2020 election, even if the bullshit is coming from inside the White House.

The tweaks are among the most aggressive by a major social media platform to muffle election-related misinformation to date. But with the future of American democracy hanging on a Donald Trump tweetstorm and mere weeks until Election Day, we’re all just going to have to cross our fingers that this does anything at all.

The first change to Twitter’s platform includes adding warning “prompts” to tweets with “misleading information” when users try to retweet them; users will also be encouraged to quote tweet—i.e., add their own commentary to a “disputed” tweet—rather than simply retweet the misleading information without additional context. Twitter won’t stop you from simply retweeting misinformation, but it hopes

The consumer review platform Yelp has added a new feature that allows users to flag businesses accused of racism.

The next time you open Lime’s smartphone app, you may see a new type of vehicle that isn’t an electric scooter. The San Francisco-based company announced today that it is integrating Wheels, a shared electric bike startup, into its app so customers can rent an e-bike from Wheels as easily as they would a scooter from Lime.

Lime plans to add more shared mobility services to its app in the coming months as it seeks to become both a provider and platform for all two-wheeled electric transport. The “ultimate goal,” a spokesperson said, is to own “all light electric vehicle trips under 5 miles.” It’s an ambitious one, especially considering that shared electric bike and scooter companies are still struggling to turn a profit as COVID-19 upends supply chains and the transportation section globally.
