Netflix plays subscriber-new show matchmaker

Frazier Moore

NEW YORK — Netflix wants subscribers to know it’s looking out for them.

For instance, the average Netflix subscriber might never guess that its dark superhero drama “Jessica Jones” might strike similar chords as the zany hijinks of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” Netflix is happy to help you make the connection.

Much of the attention showered on this streaming-video giant in recent years has dwelled on its insatiable appetite for original content and for creators to produce it.

“We want to appeal to as many different people as possible, and appeal to the many moods that each person has,” said vice president of product innovation Todd Yellin. “The more diverse our content, the more likely that someone, at their moment of truth about what they’re going to watch, will choose to go to Netflix.”

“She (a rescuer) told me that she had Gus, at first I was ‘No, you don’t,’ I was shocked, I didn’t believe her, then she held up the phone and I could hear him barking and howling in the background,” said MarLee Riel, Gus’ owner.

A Blacksburg man has been charged with 13 counts of the exploitation and solicitation of a minor, according to the S.C. Attorney General’s Office.

Attorney General Alan Wilson said Nathaniel Leron Jordon, 29, was arrested Wednesday by Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office Internet Crimes Against Children investigators.

Wilson said in a statement that investigators received an online tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children which led them to Jordon.

NPS search crew finds body of missing person in Wrangell-St. Elias …

COPPER CENTER (KTUU) – Search and rescue personnel have located a body in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve they believe to be 34-year-old hiker Nick Larsen.

Larsen was last seen on August 5th in the town of McCarthy.

The body was found in the Nizina River and the cause of death is “pending determination by the State Medical Examiner Office,” said Jamie Hart, a spokesperson for the National Park Service.

“The experienced hiker planned to backpack alone in the backcountry. A backpack was found on the Nizina River on Monday, August 28th and helped to narrow the search area,” said Hart in a press release.

Hart said investigators initially had a large area to search before the backpack was located by rafters. After it was found, the NPS could narrow its search to a 15-mile stretch of the Nizina River.

Unlike Denali National Park, Wrangell-St. Elias does not require backcountry
