The largest Dutch supermarket chain, Albert Heijn, is planning its own blockchain makeover. Albert Heijn wants to stamp bottles of its private-label juice with special QR-codes. Customers can scan them with an app that will show details about its origin and supply chain.

Stay awhile … and listen. A few months back gaming juggernaut Blizzard updated its job openings page with some tantalizing evidence we’d be hearing about a new or remastered Diablo game soon. But, as it turns out, the rumored “unannounced Diablo project” might instead be an R-rated animated Netflix series. This was semi-confirmed when Andrew Crosby, the writer who penned the upcoming Hellboy reboot, tweeted out that he was in final talks to write and show-run a Diablo series for Netflix.

Texas is not big enough for Ted Cruz and Beto O’Rourke, so the two candidates for U.S. Senate are duking it out tonight in the first of three debates. Republican incumbent Cruz has occupied the seat since 2013, but the notably unlikable senator may have met his match in the charismatic O’Rourke. Polls indicate the 45-year-old congressman has all the momentum, with one forecaster now calling the race a “toss-up.”
Either way, tonight’s high-stakes debate should be entertaining to watch. The one-hour event takes place tonight (September 21) at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. It starts at 6 p.m. local time (7 p.m. ET).
If you’re looking to stream it online, you have a few options. Texas Tribune, the nonprofit news outlet, will live-stream the debate on its website. The Dallas Morning News will also stream it online, as will the local NBC affiliate KXAS.
The debate topic is domestic politics. It will be moderated by NBC 5 reporter Julie Fine and Dallas Morning News writer Gromer Jeffers. If Cruz and O’Rourke both survive, a second debate will take place in Houston on September 30, and a third in San Antonio on October 16. After that, we’ll definitely be all Cruzed out.
