(AP) — An executive with Netflix says the streaming giant has boosted its original content exponentially over the last several years and that will mean more action for its production hub in New Mexico, where state officials have been busy trying to woo more big partners in the industry. Entrance to ABQ Studios in Albuquerque, where Netflix announced at the studio complex that it chose Albuquerque as a new production hub. (AP Photo/Susan Montoya Bryan) Nick Maniatis, who ran the state’s film office before going to work for Netflix, spoke to a group of hundreds of business leaders and elected officials who were gathered Thursday in Albuquerque.

It’s easy to forget that the first Christmas tree adornments were relatively simple. Celebrants in 16th century Germany, the birthplace of the decorated evergreen, relied on apples, baked goods, candles and tin ornaments. Apparently, they were unable to track millennial influencers on Instagram or Etsy to tell them otherwise.These simple, homespun ornaments are still around — but the baked goods and apples are often made of glass, the candles aren’t lighted (we hope), and the tin decorations are molded and painted to approximate anything from caviar containers to mermen. Looking for something a little (or very) different this Christmas? You’re in luck: Your options include shiny red grenades, chain saws, body parts, and glass spheres painted with the words “well hung.” Advertisement Are you a unicorn aficionado?

LAS VEGAS — When Sheryl Thornton-Burnham moved to Las Vegas in 1995, she didn’t think the Raiders would someday follow. Thornton-Burnham had worked for the Raiders for several years in Los Angeles. She was aware of the NFL’s long resistance to basing a team in Las Vegas, a hub for legal sports gambling. Now, however, Thornton-Burnham need only look at the framework of the nearly $2 billion stadium going up near the Strip to be reminded that in less than a year, this city will become the new home of the Raiders, who are playing out their expected final season in Oakland. “People are excited,” said Thornton-Burnham, who leads a Raiders booster club here. “There are people who are not Raider fans who are still excited about it because they know what the influx of a team will do for a city. “Las Vegas is turning into a world-class city. It’s not Sin City anymore. It’s a bona fide city that can compete with anybody.” Optimism about … [Read more...] about Las Vegas prepares to welcome Raiders, but is it a bad bet?
