    Georgia's Nikoloz Basilashvili arrested on domestic violence charge (May 2020) I think the trial is still pending.
  2. @ams1001 said I have contacts that are "multi-focal" (supposed to correct for presbyopia in addition to my nearsightedness), but I still frequently need reading glasses on top of them. It's frustrating. I also wear Rx glasses sometimes and use Fitovers sunglasses with them. I swear they were $25 when I bought them, but now they seem to be $40 and up. And of course I can wear them by themselves as regular sunglasses when I'm wearing the contacts.
  3. From the Miami Herald: "[Fisher] earned his bachelor’s in theater and English literature from Northwestern University in 2012 and had several stage roles in Rhode Island after graduation. For the last few years, Fisher has lived in Southern California where he is a professional stage actor. 'Particularly, with a company that does a Shakespeare tour every summer where we tour all around Southern California,' he said." If they're just reading glasses, they're not that expensive, but also what @vibeology said:
  4. More on his research, from https://seas.yale.edu/news-events/news/who-matt-amodio-jeopardy-champion: How would you describe your area of research? "In the broadest sense, I’m in the department of Computer Science, but I focus on artificial intelligence and deep learning - specifically, neural networks. And within that, by virtue of being in Smita Krishnaswamy’s lab - she works in Genetics as well as Computer Science - my big thing is applying neural networks on biological data."
  5. In one of his interviews/stories (on the show), he said he's aiming to finish at the end of this year.
  6. The judges and host can read the screens before they are revealed. I may have read this in Claire McNear's book, but I listened to the audiobook and thus can't search it to give a source. I just did a little searching online and found this to confirm, however.
  7. Yes, sometimes you could catch "Alex Trebek's wardrobe provided by Giorgio Armani" or somesuch in the end credits. Here's a story about his stylist from a few years ago: https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2015/12/alex-trebek-stylist-phil-wayne Mayim was wearing red shoes--funny (to me), given the correct FJ response. Of course, the shoes are silver in the book. And the book was originally titled The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, but editions without "wonderful" have been published, and Jeopardy has accepted/used both titles in the past.
  8. I totally missed the connection. Thanks! I was surprised Matt got Valerie Bertinelli, to be honest.
  9. All right, I'll confess I did not get it. It's because Sarah said, "Nichelle Nichols, who shared one of TV's first interracial kisses with William Shatner, & who would later help NASA recruit more women & minorities for the space program, wore this uniform..." I stopped listening here and said "redshirt " (though she wasn't). (The clue finished, "as Lieutenant Uhura on this series.")
  10. And, some trivia: There's an episode of The Muppet Show titled "Sex and Violence"! https://muppet.fandom.com/wiki/The_Muppet_Show:_Sex_and_Violence
  11. You got me wondering. That category has never been used per the J-Archive (search is definitely faster now!), but there has been "Sports Birds" (in 1985): https://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=3051&highlight=birds+sports
  12. Ohhh, thank you. I thought the laughter moment was because she finally got a novel clue right. She mentioned that she used to work in a bookstore in her interview. I had forgotten her name was Rebecca, but I get it now! I liked that, too. I'm sure the show doesn't want another "emanciptation" brouhaha. I know I don't. As with that game, the ruling on the spelling in this game would not have changed the outcome anyway. But it's nice to explain the reasoning, especially for more casual viewers.
  13. I heard "soldier" too, and it reminded me of the gangster/gangsta overrule. https://www.jeopardy.com/jbuzz/behind-scenes/judges-table-whose-paradise-it From today: I can't wait until his name's no longer attached.
