Everyone's already seen this mess from National Geographic, right?
Dang, that's some impressively poor journalism. You can see above that National fucking Geographic still apparently entertains Murray's discredited witch-cult hypothesis from the 1930s.
This screencap is from soon after the article went live, and it's since been amended, of course, after people wrote in to complain. Now it describes the Horned God worshipers as "ancient Celts."
The thing is, the Horned God is a Wiccan concept, though. There's ancient horned deities, of course, but no one central horned figure like in Wicca.
So they're kind of just mixing things around at this point? Oh wow. Please try harder, NatGeo!

Exclusive: Avatar Studios has begun casting for an animated project titled Avatar: New Generations
We have another new potential title for you today: Avatar: New Generations. Avatar Studios is currently casting for this project.
Avatar Kyoshi and her supporting cast including Yun, Rangi, and Hei-Ran from the Chronicles of the Avatar novels will all appear in sizeable roles in New Generations-- learn more about their involvement in our previous exclusive here.
There’s still a bit of uncertainty about this current round of casting and what projects each casting call is for. We know for sure that the 2025 adult Gaang movie (itself already rumored to be titled ATLA: Hidden Kingdom) is casting the adult Gaang at the moment. We also now know these Kyoshi characters are being cast for New Generations. We technically don’t know whether they’re being cast for the adult Gaang movie, in which case that would be New Generations, or a separate project, most likely the new earth Avatar series coming the same year (2025). It would make a lot of sense for something called New Generations to be about, well, the new generation, so it feels like that’s a point for the Kyoshi characters showing up in the new earth Avatar series rather than the adult Gaang movie. However, for posterity, it is still possible it’s either the movie or show or even some complete other project we’ve never heard about (or the Kyoshi movie is back lol). If it is the movie (in which case it would probably be referring to the Gaang’s kids’ generation?), this makes it the THIRD potential title we’ve heard for it now: Echoes and Aftershocks, Hidden Kingdom, and New Generations.
Also note: this title is less fixed info than usual-- it could change or just be a code name. We have reason to believe it could be slightly off, for example it’s possible New Generation (singular instead of plural) or something similar like Next Generation(s) are on the table.

Josei Yuri Manga 'She Loves Cook, and She Loves to Eat' Volume 2 Released
On March 21, Yen Press released the second volume of Sakaomi Yuzaki's slice of life Yuri series She Loves to Cook, and She Loves to Eat (Tsukuritai Onna to Tabetai Onna).
The manga follows Nomoto, who likes to cook to destress. One day, she finds herself making more food than she can possibly eat by herself. And so, she invites her neighbor Kasuga over for an impromptu dinner date.
The publisher describes the second volume:
Kasuga and Nomoto promised to spend their Christmas and New Years together. Now, they find themselves learning more about each others families through the food sent by Nomotos mother. Cute character bento, salmon and rice, stollen, fruit sandwiches, roast beef... Nomoto and Kasuga warm up to each other over a cheerful holiday season.
She Loves to Cook, and She Loves to Eat is serialized digitally by ASCII Media Work’s COMIC it. ASCII Media Works publishes three volumes of the series in Japanese.
A live-action television drama adaptation of the series aired from November to December 2022. It was broadcast for 10 episodes. Yui Matsusaki and Hiroyuki Nakata direct the drama. It stars Manami Higa and Emi Nishino.
The manga has received mostly positive reception, in 12 and 13th place in the 2021 and 2022 Next Manga Awards, respectively. Rebecca Silverman gave the second volume an overall rating of A- on Anime News Network, and Erica Friedman of Okazu awarded it a 9/10.
