          ¿Cómo saber si estoy siendo una buena mamá? Estas 13 señales te lo confirman      Cache   Translate Page      
¿Estaré siendo buena madre? Es una pregunta que sueles hacerte siempre. La duda crece cuando tienes la necesidad de responderte a ti misma si le estarás dando todo lo que necesita y, lo más importante, dándole una educación correcta. Sin duda, ser madre en la actualidad es una tarea compleja, así lo afirmó Mariel Rienman, madre de dos niñas al sitio familias.com. Para ella, en la actualidad es la presión más grande debido a la era de las redes sociales porque estas son invadidas por fotos de niños felices haciendo todo tipo de actividades y con madres que parecen sacadas de tapas de revista, por lo que a veces saber si está haciendo un buen trabajo es difícil. Con ayuda de ella, elaboramos una lista de señales que son verdaderamente importantes en la felicidad tuya y la de tus hijos, y que te dan certeza de que estás siendo una BUENA mamá para ellos. ¡La mejor! via GIPHY 1.Cuando tu hijo está contigo, siempre sonríe, juega y se divierte a más no poder. Te das cuenta de que lo disfruta porque acaba con un: “Más, mamá“. Amas estos momentos porque las risas contagiosas de él o ella invaden cualquier espacio y terminan siendo para ti un relajante que te hace olvidarte de los problemas. 2. Le enseñas a partir de los 2 años la importancia de compartir. El ser generoso con su comida y juguetes, así aprenderá a ceder y se entiende que hacerlo no es malo. Entiende también sus sentimientos, pero le explicas. Por ejemplo, “sé que estás enfadado porque tu primo Julián tiene el lápiz que tú quieres, pero cuando él acabé, te lo prestará”. 3. Sabes identificar las situaciones en las que debes decir “no”. Te duele en el alma hacerlo, pero sabes que es lo correcto y que la retribución vendrá después porque tu afán es educar en valores y con disciplina positiva. 4. Le enseñas a decir las cuatro palabras mágicas: “Muchas gracias”, “disculpa”, “perdón”, “por favor“… Lo haces dando el ejemplo porque sabes que los niños tienden a repetir el comportamiento que ven en ti. 5. Ahora eres la última que se arregla antes de salir de casa, la última en comer, la última en irte a la cama… Es más, si antes pensabas en gastar todo tu dinero comprando los outfits más de moda, ahora todo ese dinero es para comprar ropa, zapatos… pero para él o ella. ¡Tu hijo es prioridad para ti en TODO! 6. Cuando tiene una pesadilla, eres capaz de pasarlo a tu cama porque tu corazón no te permite dejarlo solo. ¡Es demasiado dolor! 7. Cuando se cae o está enfermo, siempre corre hacia ti porque sabe que lo recibirás con los brazos llenos de amor y ternura que le harán sentirse mejor. 8. A pesar de preparar el desayuno por la mañana, dejarlo en la guardería o escuela, ir a la oficina… regresas a casa con las baterías recargadas porque tu rol de mamá es el más importante para ti. Deseas abrir la puerta de tu casa y escuchar esa frase que te llena de tanta alegría: “Mamá”. 9. En medio de un berrinche has tenido que escuchar frases como: “Ya no te quiero”, “quiero más a mi papá”…, pero te tranquiliza saber que son el resultado de momentos de cólera y que cuando sea un adulto te agradecerá que lo hayas corregido. 10. No te importa que ya no sea tan bebé, de igual forma lo besas y abrazas en frente de sus amigos. 11. Los abrazos, besos y las cosquillas son tu pasatiempo favorito. Tumbarte a la cama o sobre un tapete en el piso hace de estos instantes momentos únicos. El olor de tu bebé o niño te parece tan delicioso que no quieres despegarte. 12. Te prometes a ti misma hacerle saber que aunque crezca y se equivoque, seguirás siendo su mamá y estarás siempre para él o ella. Esa a la que puede recurrir cuando se sienta feliz, pero también triste. Cuando se equivoque o pase por una mala racha, podrá volver a casa, no lo juzgarás y más bien lo apoyarás para que siga adelante. 13. Aunque ya sea un adolescente y mayor de edad, sigues esperando despierta a que llegue de la fiesta. Esperas a que suene la puerta de tu casa como señal de que llegó sano y salvo. ¿Cierto? Si tuvieras que añadir otra señal que te describe como buena madre, ¿cuál sería?

          La historia de uno de los grandes retos científicos y tecnológicos de nuestros tiempos: conseguir una máquina que planche la ropa      Cache   Translate Page      

La historia de uno de los grandes retos científicos y tecnológicos de nuestros tiempos: conseguir una máquina que planche la ropa#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Invertimos unas 9.000 horas de nuestra vida en doblar la ropa. Es un dato de Foldimate, una de las empresas que está intentando revolucionar un sector que nos afecta a todos como es el de las tareas domésticas más básicas. Lavar, doblar o planchar la ropa. Cerca de un año de nuestras vidas que podremos aprovechar en otros quehaceres si logran tener éxito en su misión: crear una máquina que doble y planche la ropa por nosotros.

Aunque un robot para planchar la ropa puede que solo sea otra de esas ocurrencias tecnológicas sin sentido, en realidad es la innovación que todos esperábamos. Y no está siendo nada fácil. Desde hace más de diez años investigadores y expertos en robótica están trabajando en construir un robot capaz de realizar estos movimientos, naturales para el ser humano pero todo un desafío para las máquinas.

Afortunadamente tenemos buenas noticias. Los avances en robótica e inteligencia artificial están dando sus frutos y ya tenemos varios modelos preparados para aterrizar al mercado. Vamos a conocerlos y repasar el camino que se ha tenido que recorrer hasta poder fabricar estas máquinas que todos querremos tener en nuestra casa.

Laundroid, un proyecto con más de 60 millones detrás

El proyecto más ambicioso de crear una máquina que doble y planche la ropa por nosotros era Laundroid. Fue mostrado por primera vez hace cuatro años pero el modelo final sigue sin estar disponible. ¿Su precio? Todavía no está confirmado pero sus creadores hablan de unos 16.000 dólares.

Seven Dreamers es la empresa japonesa detrás de Laundroid. Pero para este proyecto tan ambicioso no están solos. Panasonic y Daiwa House han colaborado con ellos desde el principio con una fuerte inversión. 60 millones de dólares por parte de Panasonic con una participación del 10% del proyecto según la BBC. Todo sea por adelantarse en la carrera por construir una de las máquinas del futuro.

Laundroid Robot Plancha

Durante el CES del año pasado tuvimos oportunidad de ver Laundroid en funcionamiento. Estamos ante un enorme armario en cuyo interior tiene un mecanismo para reconocer las distintas prendas y sacarlas perfectamente dobladas y planchadas. El objetivo de la empresa es que en el futuro tengamos un Laundroid en la habitación, donde podamos colocar la ropa de cualquier manera y nos la devuelva en perfecto estado.

Laundroid es la máquina para doblar y planchar la ropa más avanzada. Un proyecto que cuenta con el fuerte apoyo de compañías japonesas como Daiwa House y Panasonic pero sigue sin materializarse.

El sistema tarda de cinco a diez minutos en plegar cada prenda, pero esperan reducir ese tiempo significativamente. La compañía cuenta con más de 40 desarrollos propios en campos como el análisis de imagen, inteligencia artificial y robótica. Una serie de tecnologías que permiten al Laundroid identificar los tejidos, el tipo de ropa y organizar las prendas en montones separados. Todo en un armario que no hacía especialmente ruido cuando estuvimos viéndolo y con un diseño vanguardista. También es cierto que su tamaño y precio lo alejan bastante de la máquina para planchar la ropa que podríamos tener en nuestras casas.

La última versión mostrada Laundroid dispone de integración con el asistente de voz Alexa así como una aplicación para móvil donde el usuario puede elegir qué piezas de ropa concretas la máquina doblará y planchará. El equipo de Laundroid tiene en mente además lanzar una API para que otros puedan extender sus posibilidades, aunque todavía estamos lejos de esa fase.

Panasonic aprovechó la IFA para promocionar su idea futurista de hogar conectado. Entre los distintos electrodomésticos también se mostró un prototipo de mantenedor sostenible. Un sistema de lavado inteligente que identificar la ropa, elige el ciclo de lavado apropiado según el nivel de suciedad, seca la ropa, la plancha y la dobla en su lugar correspondiente. Un modelo muy similar al de Laundroid y muestra que tarde o temprano el gigante japonés quiere ofrecer una máquina de estas características. Veremos si finalmente en el IFA de este año conocemos alguna novedad de este ambicioso proyecto.

TEO y su plancha

Teo

Para llegar a fabricar estas sofisticadas máquinas antes se han hecho muchas pruebas. Experimentos, robots más rudimentarios y muchísima investigación en robótica e inteligencia artificial para poder realizar una tarea aparentemente tan sencilla. En el hogar tenemos robots aspiradores o de cocina pero la automatización del planchado representa un reto más grande.

En 2010, Pieter Abbeel y Jeremy Maitin-Shepard del Departamento de Ingeniería Eléctrica y Ciencia Computacional de la Universidad de Berkeley crearon un robot denominado B.R.E.T.T (Berkeley Robot for the Elimination of Tedious Tasks). Teníamos un robot con dos brazos capaz de coger la ropa, apilarla y en unos 20-25 minutos doblarla. Todo un trabajo en inteligencia artificial para aprender cómo enfrentarse a una pieza de ropa.

Laundry Robot Ropa

Programar doblar una camisa era una tarea sencilla, pero si esta camisa no se colocaba de una determinada forma o tenía más botones, entonces el algoritmo fallaba. Los investigadores lo planearon de otra forma. Breet coge la prenda y mediante sus cámaras 3D identifica la forma y el peso de la camisa para poder extenderla en la mesa. Una vez extendida el robot es capaz de identificar las esquinas, las mangas y las distintas partes. Y entonces proceder al planchado. Las primeras demostraciones se hicieron con 50 toallas de diversos colores y tamaños.

Más reciente es TEO, el robot fruto de la investigación de David Estévez, Juan G. Victores, Raul Fernandez-Fernandez y Carlos Balaguer de la Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. De nuevo a partir de cámaras 3D puede planchar prendas y entender arrugas o pliegues en la ropa.

Su sistema de computación "Wrinkleness Local Descriptor" calcula la trayectoria de la plancha y al contrario que otros trabajos no necesita conocer previamente cómo será la ropa. Los resultados son muy precisos y al contrario que otras máquinas planchadoras, a TEO le han dado forma humanoide.

Los avances en visión por computador e inteligencia artificial están permitiendo algoritmos más precisos capaces de entender arrugas en tejidos de todos los tipos.
Iron Workflow

Otra investigación enfocada en el planchado de nuestra ropa es la del Departamento de Ciencia Computacional de La Universidad de Columbia. En 2016, Peter K. Allen y su equipo nos mostraban todo su trabajo en análisis de superficies para detectar arrugas y eliminarlas.

El algoritmo se basa en dos técnicas, por un lado escaneo de curvaturas y otro de discontinuidades. La primera de ella analiza la altura del tejido mientras que la segunda detecta las zonas más abruptas que normalmente corresponden a las arrugas. Con una combinación de estas dos el sistema sabe dónde debe planchar. Estas investigaciones fueron la base de la creación de estas máquinas y continuarán siéndolo para conseguir que sean más eficientes.

¿Cuánto costarán estas máquinas? Unos 1000 euros si quieres doblar la ropa

Hemos visto el ambicioso proyecto de Panasonic y Laundroid. La tecnología para reconocer arrugas también está muy avanzada. ¿Qué es lo que queda? Principalmente crear una máquina suficiente económica para ser un producto viable comercialmente. Y esto es lo que ha conseguido FoldiMate, capaz de doblar hasta 25 piezas en menos de 5 minutos.

FoldiMate nos doblará la ropa por 980$. Disponible a finales de 2019 en los EEUU y con un tamaño no mucho más grande que el de una lavadora.

FoldiMate nos ofrece una máquina en un tamaño no mucho más grande que una lavadora. Colocamos la pieza de ropa sobre una placa, la máquina se traga la pieza y la devuelve perfectamente doblada en un cajón en la parte inferior. La pudimos probar con pantalones, camisas, camisetas, toallas o jerseys y en todos funcionó a la perfección. Aunque tiene sus limitaciones, FoldiMate se limita a doblar y no plancha la ropa. También debemos colocar la ropa inicialmente en una posición concreta para que la máquina pueda doblarla. El prototipo mostrado de momento es bastante delicado y se atasca en cuanto colocábamos mal la prenda o la recogemos antes de tiempo.

Gal Rozov, CEO de FoldiMate anticipa que "Estamos encantados con el nuevo modelo mejorado y queremos tenerlo en nuestras casas lo antes posible.". Una muestra que su dispositivo está listo para el mercado ya que desde su web online abrirán las reservas. ¿Precio y disponibilidad? 980 dólares en los Estados Unidos a finales de 2019.

Pese a que no dispone de función de planchado, ya están trabajando con BSH para popularizar seriamente este tipo de máquinas.

Más interesante además es su alianza con BSH, líder de electrodomésticos en Europa. Más reconocido por ser la matriz de marcas como Bosch, Siemens, Junkers o Balay. De momento se trata de una exploración de sinergias e innovación conjunta, pero sin duda es un paso en la buena dirección para democratizar las máquinas que doblan nuestra ropa.

FoldiMate además asegura que la máquina está preparada para recibir actualizaciones OTA a través de WiFi, por lo que en el futuro también podría recibir nuevas formas de doblado y mejoras en su algoritmo.

Para planchar la clave sigue siendo el vapor

Effie

A decir verdad ya tenemos disponibles máquinas que ponen nuestra ropa a punto en 10 minutos. Tenemos opciones como Swash, que además de reducir las arrugas también elimina los malos olores. Se trata una máquina que al contrario que el resto no se basa en movimientos mecánicos, sino en unas pequeñas pastillas que contienen componentes químicos como humidificadores, agua y neutralizadores del pH. Se puso a la venta en 2016 por 499 dólares en los EEUU, pero no parece que tuvo el tirón necesario para expandirse.

En primavera de 2018 llegó Effie, una máquina de planchado creada por Rohan Kamdar y Trevor Kerth. Dos jóvenes londinenses que prometen haber reducido en un 95% el tiempo de planchado. Únicamente tres minutos para planchar cada prenda y otros tres para secarlas.

Encontrar una máquina que nos doble y planche la ropa todavía es difícil, pero si lo que queremos es únicamente planchado sí podemos encontrar numerosas opciones. Principalmente basadas en el vapor.

Su precio será de 699 libras y el diseño es peculiar. Un armario de plástico de 128cm de altura con doce perchas ajustables en el interior. Tiene además un espacio donde lo rellenaremos con agua y esto nos creará un vapor que mediante un brazo irá subiendo y bajando. Una máquina que copia el mecanismo de la plancha de vapor más tradicional pero automatiza el proceso.

Effie permite planchar hasta 12 prendas de una tirada, funciona con todo tipo de prendas tradicionales como pantalones, camisas o camisetas y también con la mayoría de tejidos excepto el cuero.

Lg Styler
Los armarios del futuro nos plancharán y doblarán la ropa. Pero hay que esperar que mejoren la identificación de prendas y arrugas, sean más ágiles y cuidadosos al doblar la ropa y por supuesto bajen de precio.

Otra máquina que nos planchará la ropa es el LG Styler, un elegante armario con espejo exterior que también mediante vapor caliente pulverizado nos ayudará a eliminar las arrugas y reducir el mal olor. En 20 minutos podremos tener nuestras prendas listas para la ocasión. En este caso, el precio sube a los 2099 dólares.

Durante este CES, LG ha presentado una modificación de su LG Styler con espejo y un diseño más refinado y moderno. Adicionalmente se ha añadido compatibilidad con Google Assistant y el uso de tecnologías como 'LG TrueSteam' para eliminar olores y bacterías o 'Pants Crease Care' para garantizar una apariencia limpia y sin arrugas.

Lg Styler

De momento estas máquinas para doblar y planchar nuestra ropa son bastante limitados pero los avances en los últimos años nos hacen ser optimistas. Por un lado tenemos los robots capaces de doblar la ropa como FoldiMate que estarán listos, previsiblemente, para este año, por otro máquinas de vapor en forma de armario para planchar como Effie o el LG Styler que ya se pueden comprar. Finalmente hay proyectos muy ambiciosos como Laundroid que permiten planchar y doblar la ropa, pero su precio, tamaño y disponibilidad los sitúa de momento lejos de nuestros bolsillos.

          小丑以及他的「風騷」斧頭幫:比金塊更可怕的,是他們的未來      Cache   Translate Page      
延續前篇:小丑以及他的「風騷」斧頭幫:丹佛金塊如何強勢崛起金塊近來表現有些疲軟,自從在12 月 3 日在客場虐殺暴龍、取得大勝之後,球隊的防守效率就急遽下降,在那之後的 22 場比賽,每百回合失分達到 112.6 分,在全聯盟中排名倒數第四位。金塊在外線就像旋轉門一樣,雖然 Jokic 的防守能力飽受低估,但他在內線無法扛住、也不太可能衝上外線防守。金塊在防守擋拆時,還是常常讓 Jokic 向內線下沉,這就導致對手多了三分空檔。via GIPHY上圖中投籃的是Klay Thompson——NBA 史上最強的射手之一,但金塊卻不識相地給了他大空檔,Jokic 並未趨前跟上擋拆換防;加上全隊最好的外圍防守球員 Harris 缺陣,情況更是雪上加霜。Beasley 的防守雖然也不差,但他終究比不上 Harris,無法破解對手擋拆掩護,死命地黏著著對手的外圍射手。Murray 也常常在防守無球球員時放空,讓對手有空檔投籃或上籃切入的機會。金塊的對手也看中了這點,投籃出手中高達 72.4% 都是在三分線外或是近框出手,比例高居全聯盟第一。然而就連Harris 傷癒復出也無法解決外線防守問題;不過他常常被派去盯守當家球星,至少這點就能補足一些球隊防守上的缺憾。就跟許多球隊一樣,金塊需要找到更好的側翼、前鋒防守球員。這點可能會在 Jokic 和 Murray 成為球隊的主要進攻核心之後更顯重要,到了季後賽階段他們雙雙更容易成為對手的目標,雖然他們在進攻上是火力強大的組合,但是金塊能夠在季後賽走多遠,端看他們能否在防守端共存。「我們從沒打進過季後賽。你得先學會爬,才有辦法學會走。」當我問到 Connelly 金塊如何從一支好球隊晉級成為冠軍勁旅?他回答道:「季後賽就像是『實話血清』(truth serum)一樣,能夠暴露出你的真正實力,我們還沒有本錢放鬆,不能好高騖遠,我們離冠軍還有一段距離,我們需要證明的是能在季後賽跟這些強敵匹敵。」金塊離總冠軍賽還有一段距離,這是事實。今年一月中,勇士就證明了這一點。他們在金塊主場殺得片甲不留,第一節就飆破紀錄拿下 51 分,最終也以 142 比 111 血洗金塊。「失敗為成功之母,」Malone 在吞敗之後說到,「好好接受這場敗仗,從中汲取教訓,向前繼續邁進。如果我們能做到這些,這樣這場敗仗才能真正幫助我們成長。」金塊陣容中多半為20 歲上下的小伙子,他們的球技都尚未定型;幸運的是,也就是因為這樣,他們在薪資財務上也相當具有彈性。金塊已經和 Jokic、Harris 以及Barton 重金續約,但其他球員的合約則都尚未跑完。即便是 Millsap 下季的3000 萬合約,也都是球隊選擇權。到時候球隊若不執行選擇權,暑假金塊將有 1630 萬的薪資空間。如果球隊沒有簽下長約,他們有機會在2020 年夏天替Murray 清出高達 3200 萬的薪資空間。在接下來的休賽季,金塊也將握有三個分別價值 1380 萬、1280 萬和 590 萬的交易特例空間,以及 910 萬的非納稅球員中產特例和一個 350 萬的半年交易特例,讓他們有機會再休賽期的交易市場中大肆進補。(這兩名金塊核心才剛要走完和球隊簽下的第一年合約)金塊向來不是自由球員心之所嚮的地方,Millsap 和 Andre Miller 已經是隊史從自由市場上簽下最大咖的兩位球星。也許只差最後一塊拼圖的他們會受到大咖球星的青睞,能和像 Jokic 這種獨角獸搭檔,加上和受人尊敬的 Malone 總教練共事,都是金塊吸引人的地方。但在讓陣容升級之前,對金塊而言更重要的是對球團的投資,包括像是建立自己的發展聯盟球隊,以及添加一些專業的籃球訓練設備等等。到了 2020 年加州英格塢市( Inglewood )的洛杉磯公羊隊的訓練中心落成後,金塊球員就能使用。「等那座新場館建好之後,Kroenke 家族相關的球隊所以就能彼此共享,屆時球員會有一部分的時間待在洛杉磯,對他們來說能使用新場館練習,將會是件非常棒的事。」Connelly 表示。至於發展聯盟球隊的部分,日前也盛傳他們也正努力籌建一隻發展聯盟的球隊。根據 ESPN 記者 Jonathan Givony 去年十月時的報導, 金塊鎖定了丹佛西北部郊區的城鎮,將在那裡建立 G-League 的球隊。全聯盟至今只剩下金塊和拓荒者,是唯二沒有附屬 G-League 球隊的球團。擁有一支 G-League 球隊對於球團的好處是,球隊可以用他來調配教練團、球隊體系和球員,有助於整支球團的發展。發展聯盟球隊還能作為球隊訓練制服組新人,讓他們累積經驗的地方:像是 WNBA 傳奇球星 Sue Bird 就在去年 11 月加盟金塊管理層。「每個管理層的人員都能獨力運作我們的球隊,」Connelly 談到球隊制服組時表示。若能擁有一支 G-League 球隊,也是讓這些人才有大展身手的機會。就目前的情況而言,金塊得把他們自己的球員下放到其他隊的發展聯盟球隊當中,像是上季他們將控球後衛 Monte Morris 下放時一樣。「我們試過和不同球隊合作,我們希望確保這樣的合作不只是邏輯上合理,商業上也是可行的。」Connelly 解釋他們的 G-League 球隊計畫。他並沒有明確喊出一個日期,但他有明確地說,金塊的發展聯盟球隊很快就會成立。上季在其他發展聯盟球隊的 Monte Morris,是本季金塊倚重的替補戰力Connelly 表示,金塊現在的終極目標是要能維持好表現:「我們不想成為只為了一、兩年成功,陣中卻堆滿短期傭兵的球隊,」但在未來的某個片刻起,這名單也會變得所費不貲,金塊老闆們也可能得為此付上一筆奢侈稅。金塊的大股東 Kroenke 家族,在 2000 年一口氣買下丹佛金塊和科羅拉多雪崩隊(NHL),但他們在體育方面的投資卻極度不均衡。 Stan Kroenke 從 2007 年買下英超的兵工廠隊之後,被媒體爆出他已經好長一段時間沒有為球隊買單,兵工廠的球隊教練 Unai Emery 最近表示,他們只能跟靠租借的方式簽下球員,而沒有財力真正買斷。 這就像是金塊跟小牛借來 Dwight Powell ,而非真正簽下 Millsap 的道理。兵工廠的球迷一直認為 Kroenke 只是想用這支球隊融資,好為其他球隊籌措資金。Kroenke 已經花了 1.6 億在加州大興土木,也把公羊隊重新帶回洛杉磯。自去年三月之後,公羊已經花了 2.37 億美元的保證金——比其他 NFL 球隊都還多,公羊隊也還算爭氣,挺進今年的超級盃,兵工廠的憤怒球迷們全都支持新英格蘭愛國者;金塊球迷應該非常希望哪天也能被兵工廠球迷痛恨—這代表著老闆正投資在金塊身上。金塊前一次支付奢侈稅已經是 2009-10 賽季的事了。那年金塊殺入西區冠軍賽,最終以 2:4 敗給了洛杉磯湖人。從那時候開始,金塊就用盡辦法避免繳納奢侈稅,包括去年夏天他們為了甩掉 Kenneth Faried 的肥約,甚至把 2019 年的首輪選秀權也拱手讓人。2010 年開始接任金塊老闆的 Josh Kroenke 去年曾向記者表示:「我們之前也付過奢侈稅,我們並不怕又要再繳一次。」Connelly 跟老闆口徑一致:「我們會不惜一切以取得更好的成績,並盡可能維持目前的核心。如果我們需要為此付出更多錢也 OK,倘若我們真的表現很棒,你必須得為了這些好傢伙付錢,我想這會是個甜蜜的負荷。」Faried 的交易並不是單單只是為了減少支出,更攸關球隊的未來。在近四個賽季中付過三次奢侈稅的球隊,就得承擔「累進奢侈稅懲罰」(repeater tax),這種稅的金額更具有懲罰性,甚至會影響到球隊的穩定。但Kroenke 家族若想讓球隊更上一層樓,勢必得在某個時間點付出奢侈稅以維持戰力,但在那時間點來臨之前,他們就得把現在做得最好的一件事繼續下去:培養年輕人才。「如果你在選秀會上挑對人,那你就能輕鬆應付大部分情況。因你永遠都有天賦在手。」Josh Kroenke 去年三月在 The Woj Pod 節目中說道,「我想我們已挺過了最初幾年的困境,也在那幾年中累積了不少優秀球員。在這過程中並不是球球安打,我們在 2017 年選秀會也因為向下交易,讓爵士拿走出色的球員而被批評了許久。」Kroenke 所指的當然是金塊把 Donovan Mitchell 送到了爵士,換來 Trey Lyles 和第 24 順位的選秀籤,金塊後來用這支籤選中了前鋒 Tyler Lydon。Kroenke 向 Adrian Wojnarowski 解釋了為何當初要做這筆交易,因為當時球隊後衛人滿為患,加上當時他們對 Lyles 這位 2015 年極力想拿下的球員有很高的評價。但這筆交易中最糟的部分就是:金塊之所以換來 24 順位,就是想簽下 O.G. Anunoby ,結果被暴龍搶先一步選走,「我們錯過好人選的次數,跟成功的次數相差無幾。但你也不能因為怕錯過就放棄了你大膽追求的腳步。」Connelly表示。現在全隊當中大家最期待的,便是去年選秀會上,金塊以第14 順位選中的 Michael Porter Jr. 。他在進入密蘇里大學之前,一直被外界預測為 2018 年選秀狀元,可惜在前年 11 月和去年 7 月,因為椎間盤突出和腰椎問題先後動了兩次手術,讓他在密蘇里大學的總出賽時間僅有 53 分鐘。但 Connelly 和 Karnisovas 都強調他在美國國家隊、高中比賽或是 NIKE 籃球高峰會(hoop summit)的資訊。Connelly 曾說:「在另一支球隊的同事在做了很完整的分析後,曾對 18 年選秀說過句精彩的話:『在 Porter 身上沒有打不出好成績的風險。』不管你怎麼看 Michael 所經歷的這些傷病,但沒有一支球隊會認為他不會打球。」Connelly 談起他們的新秀,「他是個 6 呎 10 吋(208 公分)高的進攻好手,又具有相當高的籃球智商,他的家人也跟他一樣非常熱愛籃球。」金塊從來不會因傷病問題而放棄潛力股,Beasley 在 2016 年選秀會上,就因為右腿疲勞性骨折而被其他球隊所放棄,金塊則在首輪第 19 順位把他簽下;2018 年選秀會金塊也以第 41 順位簽下 Jarred Vanderbilt 這位球風詭譎的策應型內線,他就像是個少了耳洞、缺了染髮 Dennis Rodman。Connelly 表示球隊的分析系統計算認為 Vanderbilt 的籃板水準是史上最強,但他的選秀排名卻因為高中時的多重腿傷——手術後只在肯塔基大學打了 14 場比賽——而掉到第二輪中段。「如果不是因為腿傷,那他會是前15 順位的樂透區好手。我們已經有太多技巧型的球員,我們缺的是能幹些苦工的球員。」金塊希望 Porter 也能成為球隊中技巧型球員的一份子。Connelly 不急著為Porter 設定復出的時間表,但他表示這位年僅 20 歲的新秀,在非對抗性的訓練中表現出色。「當你看到他在那非對抗練習中的表現時,很難不會留下深刻印象,而且會非常期待他康復之後在場上的表現,」Connelly 談到 Porter 現在的狀況,「他的流暢性已經慢慢抓回來,他已經覺得自己準備好了,但我們還是得有點耐心,我們不想看他又再次在比賽中倒下。」「能加入一支不用扛起『救世主』名號的球隊,其實是很好的一件事。我們也沒有對著他說『我們亟需要你。』我相信當他完全準備好重新上場的時候,他絕對能轟動整個 NBA。」延伸閱讀:下一個Ben Simmons?因傷耽誤的大物新秀Michael Porter Jr.via GIPHY一旦 Porter 復出,他將是添補金塊「時髦」球風的最佳人選:當金塊派出「大型陣容」時,他有能力去打 3 號位;要拚小球陣容時,他又能以大前鋒身分跟 Jokic搭檔,做 Hernangomez 或 Millsap 的工作。不難想像Porter 上場時的樣子:他會用他出色的無球技巧幫隊友做擋拆掩護,接著空手切入或是埋伏外線。當然,Porter 持球進攻能力也遠高於 Hernangomez、甚至是 Millsap,Connelly 表示球隊的助理教練 Mark Price 把 Porter 譽為全隊最佳射手:「如果你問我們現在還缺什麼球員,我會告訴你:我們就缺少 Porter這種球員,」Connelly 如此盛讚。雖然 Porter 還有些關鍵部分需要加強:舉例來說,像是他現在跳投選擇時機選擇都不是很理想,常常也被詬病太過黏球;現在他效力於一支人才濟濟的球隊,他勢必得做出些改變。儘管如此,只要他發揮出自己的潛力,就有機會把金塊提升到更高的層次。「我覺得 Michael 有些特別之處。」作為隊友的 Hernangomez 談道,「他身體素質不錯、技巧也好,雖然現在狀況還未達 100%,但他已經具備了關鍵球星的所有特質。」姑且不論 Porter 會如何發展,金塊不太可能在短時間就有所提升。他們擁有全 NBA 最年輕、最具天賦的球隊核心之一。金塊現在雖然還沒達到冠軍隊的水準,但接下來的兩個夏天,他們都有很大的機會蛻變。「我覺得我們可以做的很好,」Jokic 談起和 Murray 的默契,「有些時候我們真的是銳不可擋,你懂嗎?」這意味著Jokic 將會搏得更多的關注和名氣,但有什麼辦法呢?這畢竟是他工作的一部分。更多最新 NBA 精選好文:國王隊的國王:De’Aaron Fox 談本季的成功、季中交易以及種族議題小小的我有大大的夢 默默成長的活塞是東區季後賽大黑馬!?突破看衰西區坐九看八!Fox 要用「速度」帶領國王超車距離突圍東區角逐冠軍金盃 Kawhi Leonard 只差最後一道課題居然還需要 Kuzma 推一把?7 大片段控訴 LBJ 本季悽慘的防守【特約編輯 葉冠銘/責任編輯 徐立哲】本文編譯參考:Nikola Jokic and the Funky Bunch

          USWNT Files Lawsuit Against US Soccer for Gender Discrimination & World Cup Kits Revealed      Cache   Translate Page      
Lawsuit Against US Soccer



• Last week all 28 members of the USWNT filed a lawsuit against US Soccer alleging institutionalized gender discrimination.

• Players are seeking back pay and damages for any female player who's represented the United States at the senior national level since Feb. 2015.

• In 2016, five members of the USWNT at the time filed a wage discrimination action against US Soccer with the EEOC (ONTD Post). The complaint was never resolved, but the EEOC granted a right-to-sue letter to allow for a federal court filing.

• In 2017, USWNT & US Soccer agreed on a new collective bargaining agreement through 2021.

• Timing for the lawsuit was chosen not only to coincide with International Women's Day, but to capitalize on the attention on USWNT & US Soccer in the lead-up to the World Cup. US Soccer won't do anything to jeopardize the WNT's chances this summer so there's no threat of players being dropped from the squad in retribution and there will be a lot of discussion on equal pay, revenue produced, etc.

          Recado da Gal Gadot para Capitã Marvel é LINDO e supera rivalidade entre DC e Marvel      Cache   Translate Page

Todo mundo sabe que a Marvel e a DC são rivais na indústria mundial de quadrinhos e pode ser difícil escolher qual das duas é a favorita quando o assunto envolve super-heróis.

E se você acreditava que as franquias eram irreconciliáveis, uma declaração feita por Gal Gadot, intérprete da Mulher Maravilha, para a Capitã Marvel, vivida por Brie Larson, vai provar exatamente o contrário.

Recado da Mulher Maravilha para a Capitã Marvel

"Capitã Marvel" é o primeiro filme da franquia que apresenta uma mulher como protagonista. Nessa categoria, a DC acabou levando vantagem, já que lançou a história da "Mulher Maravilha" em 2017.

Poderíamos acreditar que agora a DC e a Marvel competem para provar quem tem a heroína mais poderosa. A resposta para essa pergunta é: por que não as duas?

Faltando um dia para o lançamento de "Capitã Marvel", que aconteceu no dia 8 de março, Patty Jenkins aproveitou a oportunidade para homenagear Brie Larson e todos os que participaram da produção.

Por isso, a diretora de "Mulher Maravilha" publicou uma ilustração no Twitter, feita por John Yandall, na qual as duas personagens voam lado a lado no céu.

Congratulations team Captain Marvel! Can't wait to see it and our whole WW crew wish you a great weekend. Love this gorgeous piece by @SamoanJYandall! pic.twitter.com/A3yUxwHhLZ

— Patty Jenkins (@PattyJenks) March 7, 2019

"Parabéns, equipe Capitã Marvel! Mal posso esperar para vê-la e toda a nossa equipe MM deseja um ótimo final de semana para vocês!".

Com essa atitude, Jenkins mostrou que lutar por um número maior de bilheteria não é tudo. O mais importante é apoiar outras mulheres que estão conquistando espaço na cultura pop.

Gal Gadot, por outro lado, usou o desenho de Maxy Artwork para celebrar o sucesso da Capitã Marvel. No Instagram Stories, a atriz escreveu: "Estou muito feliz por você, irmã! Felicidades".

A maior surpresa do gesto adorável entre as artistas foi que Maxy, que tem apenas 17 anos, é fã das duas personagens. A ilustradora compartilhou a publicação de Gal Gadot e apostou em uma mensagem que resume o que TODOS os amantes da Marvel e DC pensam.

"Hum, olá. Então, Gal Gadot, a própria Mulher Maravilha, publicou minha arte em suas histórias no Instagram para apoiar o Capitã Marvel de Brie Larson. Não consigo descrever em palavras como estou incrivelmente feliz por não ser só porque é minha arte, mas por causa de como elas se apoiam mutuamente. Eu faço esse tipo de arte para unir mulheres e mostrar como é importante para nós ter protagonistas femininas. Obrigado".

Tem como não admirar as duas? Girl power!

Why Your Family Is Your Inspiration, By Zodiac Sign

Family is important. Though not always related by blood, family are the people who stay by your side during the good and bad times.

They are the people who you know that you can count on no matter what.

You know that they love you unconditionally, and that you will always have a group of people you belong with.

RELATED: Why Your Family Relationships Are So Complicated, Per Astrology

To have a family is to have the greatest gift of all. In astrology, you choose what family you would be born into, including the life circumstances you would have faced by virtue of your horoscope and time of birth. In addition to all the other previously mentioned benefits of having a family, family also does something else that is pretty special. Family has the ability to inspire you to be the greatest version of yourself.

They know what you are capable of and through their words and actions motivate you to be successful. While you can be inspired by anyone and anything, being inspired by the people you love most holds a greater weight. This is because you know how much time and energy you’ll put into each other.

Inspiration can come in many different forms including challenging a person to chase their dreams or motivating them to do so by pursuing your own. Sometimes you don’t even realize how or why a person inspires you.

Zodiac signs can help you determine the what, how and why you are inspired. Your sign can specifically tell you why you are inspired by your family. If you’re a Cancer, then you care deeply about family, which is why your family inspires you to keep up with matters of the home.

If you’re a Virgo, then you are dedicated to your family, which is why your family inspires you to step away from your work. Find out why your family inspires you based on your zodiac sign. Then use that knowledge to stay motivated to keep pushing to make them proud and to inspire them to do the same.

According to astrology, here is why your family inspires you and keeps you going, by zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries are known for being independent and ambitious, which is one of the reasons why they are currently looking for speed and competition . Their loved ones are the first people to understand their need to be first in everything and therefore allow them to participate in sports and other activities where they can be challenged to be the best.

As Aries get older, they show appreciation to their families for giving them a platform to shine on by striving to excel in their career fields. Aries knows that the workplace is the perfect arena for their ambition and creativity to show.

They work hard to become the boss so that they are able to use that position as a sign of success and as a way to create a more flexible schedule that allows them to take care of family obligations whenever needed. 


TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus is a sign that enjoys spending time with loved ones. That is why family is so important to them. Taurus likes being able to look back on all of their childhood memories as they are reminded why they love their family dynamic so much.

This is why their family inspires them to find a lover who shares the same values as it relates to upbringing and traditions. They want to choose someone who will respect their family  routines and customs. This way when the time comes to have a family of their own, they are able to pass down those traditions as a way for them and their partner to teach their kids the importance of staying connected to loved ones.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Referred to as the caring twins, Gemini has two different personalities. On one hand they have fleeting emotions which cause them to leave their loved ones behind. On the other hand, they wish to build a strong emotional bond with them.

This is especially true for the younger members of their family, including their kids. Gemini's family therefore inspires them to find balance between these two personalities. They will continue to be their social selves, connecting with people all over as they seek intellectual stimulation and information that will inspire them to move forward in life.

At the same time, they will come up with a routine that will allow them to carry out their family responsibilities as they don't want to miss out on spending time with them. 


CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

As the sign of family, there is nothing Cancer cares about more than matters of the home. Though home is their preferred place to be, because they care so much about the image of their family Cancers are inspired to connect with the outside world.

As family continues to encourage Cancer to step outside of their comfort zone, they are able to better blend with the world around them as they help people who are not their loved ones. Cancers are also able to expand their horizons as they participate in activities they otherwise wouldn't and create memories they can preserve for a lifetime, something

          Novedades de Chrome 73: modo oscuro, soporte para teclas multimedia y mejoras para las PWA       Cache   Translate Page      

Novedades de Chrome 73: modo oscuro, soporte para teclas multimedia y mejoras para las PWA #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Vamos a contarte cuáles son las novedades de Chrome 73, la nueva versión del navegador lanzada hoy oficialmente por Google tal y como nos lo han contado los compañeros de Genbeta. Los titulares se los lleva el nuevo modo oscuro automático para macOS, pero también hay otras novedades que conviene tener en cuenta.

Por ejemplo, Google ha implementado soporte para las teclas multimedia de que tienen algunos teclados, la posibilidad de usar Aplicaciones Web Progresivas en macOS, y ventanas flotantes en ellas. También hay algunas novedades para Android e iOS, además de las clásicas soluciones de bugs y problemas de cualquier otra versión.

Modo oscuro para macOS, y pronto para Windows

El modo oscuro de Chrome llevaba semanas acercándose con sus pruebas en Canary o el tema oficial para usar su aspecto, pero finalmente llega de una manera bastante interesante. Eso sí, de momento parece que sólo está funcionando en las versiones para macOS Mojave para adaptarse al tema que haya en el sistema operativo.

El funcionamiento es el siguiente, si tienes activado el modo oscuro de macOS, Chrome se adaptará automáticamente para utilizar también el mismo modo. Este es el que vimos en el tema que ya puedes descargar, y utiliza los mismos colores que ves en la sesión de incógnito del navegador. Para activar el modo oscuro en macOS, simplemente debes ir a Preferencias del Sistema > General, y en la parte superior seleccionar el "Aspecto" que quieras utilizar.

Soporte para las teclas multimedia de tu teclado

Muchos teclados incluyen teclas multimedia, accesos directos para controlar la reproducción musical o de vídeo del ordenador que pueden ser botón de Play/Pausa, para avanzar o retroceder en las pistas o ajustar el volumen. Hasta ahora Chrome ignoraba estas teclas, pero ahora ha pasado a soportarlas como ya hacen los propios sistemas operativos u otras aplicaciones como Spotify o VLC.

De esta manera, si en el navegador estás reproduciendo un elemento multimedia y pulsas por ejemplo el botón de pausa, el elemento quedará pausado, y si pulsas el botón de "Play" volverá a reproducirse. Esta compatibilidad también servirá tanto si Chrome está en primer plano o en segundo plano. En Chrome OS, podrás pausar y continuar reproducciones en Chrome, las aplicaciones de Chrome y las de Android.

Soporte para "Picture in Picture" en vídeos de PWA

Otra de las novedades de esta nueva versión es el hecho de que Chrome añade en el escritorio soporte al modo Picture in Picture para las [Aplicaciones Web Progresivas](PWA](https://www.xataka.com/basics/que-es-una-aplicacion-web-progresiva-o-pwa). Se trata de un modo con el que vas a poder desplazarte por una de estas aplicaciones o una web sin perder de vista un vídeo que estés viendo, ya que se transforma en una ventana flotante que puedes mover a la posición que quieras.

Esta ventana se mantendrá siempre visible mientras haces otras cosas. Con ello, por poner un ejemplo, podrás mirar aplicaciones o pestañas mientras estás en una videoconferencia sin perder de vista lo que se está haciendo o diciendo en ella.

PWA para macOS

Además de los vídeos, Google también ha dicho que sigue mejorando la experiencia de las Aplicaciones Web Progresivas haciéndolas compatibles con macOS. Google lleva bastantes versiones del navegador ofreciendo mejoras con esta tecnología, que busca que puedas utilizar aplicaciones web como si fueran aplicaciones nativas.

Al añadir el soporte para macOS, ya podemos decir que Chrome ya permite utilizar las PWA en todos los principales sistemas operativos, como Windows, GNU/Linux, macOS, ChromeOS, pero también en móviles Android e iOS.

Un poquito más de privacidad

Google también ha mejorado las opciones de sincronización de datos de Chrome. Con ello, puedes elegir de forma más sencilla qué información quieres compartir con la empresa y acceder a ella desde cualquier dispositivo, ya que toda estará unida y centralizada.

Mejoras para iOS y Android

Lite Pages

Los sistemas operativos móviles también han recibido alguna novedad. Por ejemplo, Android ahora tiene sugerencias en la Dino Page para poder leer artículos sugeridos cuando se esté offline. Además, también se estrena la característica Lite Pages, que es la función del ahorro de datos que deja de cargar las imágenes y vídeos de una página web, optimizándolas para conexiones lentas.

En iOS si los formularios no se completan automáticamente, ahora puedes tocar los iconos sobre el teclado y acceder a tus contraseñas, direcciones e información de tarjetas guardas para agilizar procesos. También se actualiza la lista de motores por defecto para que puedas elegir tu favorito.

  • Twitter has made it easier for people to take videos and photos from inside its app.
  • A design tweak means you can swipe left from your timeline, straight into the camera.
  • Twitter bills itself as the best place to follow events as they're happening, and wants to make it easier for people to start broadcasting right away.
  • It coincides with the massive popularity of image-oriented apps like Instagram, TikTok, and Snapchat.
  • Twitter says videos and images captured through its camera will look a little different to uploaded media, in a bid to ensure authenticity.

Twitter has made it easier to take pictures and video from within its app, thanks to a design tweak that gives users access to the camera in a single swipe.

The design update means that you can open the Twitter app and land on your main timeline as usual, but then swipe left straight into the camera.

Previously, the app didn't do anything when you swiped left from the timeline. Getting to the in-app camera used to be a two-stage process that required you to open the tweet composer, then hit the camera icon.

Here's how the new design looks:

Twitter is billing this as an evolutionary rather than a revolutionary change, but one that makes it easier for people to see what's going on in real-time. The redesigned camera lets you take pictures, capture video, and broadcast live from inside the app.

If you have location switched on within Twitter, the camera will work out if you're at a major event and suggest suitable hashtags for you to post alongside your video or image. If you are, for example, attending a football game, Twitter will work out that you're at the stadium and perhaps suggest the match hashtag for your post.

The design tweak is, perhaps, a very belated nod to the rise of image-focused apps like Instagram and Snapchat, which have prioritised visual storytelling over text. Twitter is comparatively wonkish, and its 280-character post limit has perhaps kept it more focused on pithy written updates than imagery.

"Obviously there are a lot of camera apps out there," Twitter's VP of product Keith Coleman told Business Insider. "Cameras on phones are much better, and people are used to having a phone in their pocket to take pictures with. Certainly, that makes all of this possible.

"For us, we think where Twitter is useful is pretty distinct. There are lots of other apps where you can see what friends are doing... what Twitter does, it's the place to see what's happening."

There is definite scope for mischief by making it easier for people to post video and images to Twitter.

Covington 1.JPG

A video showing the encounter between Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann and Native American activist Nathan Phillips went viral, in part thanks to being pushed by an unknown Twitter account called @2020fight. The video wasn't inauthentic but subsequent, longer footage gave a fuller picture of the events. US lawmakers are now interested in who was behind the Twitter account.

Twitter doesn't necessarily have a solution for the precise Covington Catholic problem, which is one of context, but said videos and images shot through the in-app camera would look different to uploaded media.

"Things taken with the new camera will look different," Coleman said. "The idea of the new camera is that this was something from your phone, you were on location, it's much more likely to be real, on-the-ground footage."

An early look at Twitter's new camera feature 

Business Insider had an early play with the feature and, from what we can see, this has meant overlaying image or footage with a big coloured box.

Twitter camera update

The overlay doesn't look especially elegant and, as far as we can tell, it only appears via the app and not via the web version of Twitter. Coleman stresses that this is very much "version 1.0."

He added that the update was designed partly with journalists in mind, since they're most likely to be regularly posting newsworthy updates on the platform. To that end, anyone clicking into video shot via Twitter can swipe up and see additional context and commentary, which could be useful for following breaking news.

"We see this as an evolution, one of many evolutionary steps we’re making in the product," Coleman said. "And it is part of a much bigger story of how do we help you see and talk about events. This is one step in that bigger story."

Gboard mejora el reconocimiento de voz sin conexión en los teléfonos Pixel: ahora más rápido y preciso#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Hace ya muchos años que el teclado de Google incluye el reconocimiento de voz, y también tiene desde hace tiempo el reconocimiento de voz sin conexión. Sin embargo, éste era de peor calidad que el modo online, en el que tu voz es enviada a Google y tu móvil recibe de vuelta la transcripción a texto. Ahora Google está probando una nueva transcripción offline más rápida en su teclado Gboard.

Al igual que el año pasado las traducciones de textos offline se volvían menos robóticas al lograr comprimir los paquetes de reconocimiento a una cifra aceptable, ahora Google presume en su blog sobre IA de lograr reducir los 2 GB que ocupan los paquetes de reconocimiento de voz más avanzados a solo 80 MB. Estos paquetes ya se pueden probar en un teléfono Pixel, aunque por el momento solo en inglés.

Casi como online, pero offline

El nuevo reconocimiento de voz sin conexión tiene la ventaja de... eso, funcionar sin conexión, aunque esto realmente no es nuevo pues ya era posible en 2015. La real ventaja es que, tomando la palabra de Google, está a la altura del realizado en sus servidores. En la imagen anterior lo puedes ver en acción comparando el modo online, a la izquierda, frente al nuevo reconocimiento offline, a la derecha.

El resultado es el mismo -aunque tendremos que probarlo nosotros mismos para verificarlo- pero la principal ventaja es la rapidez. Al no tener que enviar la voz al servidor y recibir el resultado de vuelta, este método muestra el resultado de forma más suave y fluida, casi letra a letra y no "escupiendo" palabras como pasa con el reconocimiento online habitual.

Si tienes un teléfono Pixel, ya lo puedes probar, aunque por ahora está disponible solo en inglés. Puedes activar este reconocimiento de voz yendo a los Ajustes - Sistema - Idiomas e introducción de texto - Teclado virtual - Gboard - Dictado por voz - Escrutura por voz más rápida. Por el momento no hay detalles de cuándo se añadirán otros idiomas, aunque el equipo "espera que estas técnicas se usen pronto para adaptar otros idiomas".

          Happy Haunting from First Class HALT!!!       Cache   Translate Page      
 


We, at First Class HALT in Greenville and Anderson, love serving our customers here in the Upstate, because of all the wonderful events and activities our communities put together this time of year! Autumn brings trips to harvest festivals, pumpkin patches, apple picking, hayrides and rides through the nearby mountains to view the vivid colors of fall. And then there's the trunk-or-treating, costume parties, trick-or-treating, and all the spooky activities of October. We find joy in knowing that our first-class service takes a part in helping you and your families get around to all of this season's destinations safely and efficiently, and in our last article, we addressed the things you need to consider about servicing and equipping your automobile for the change of seasons. In this month's article, we have put together a list of our area's top-rated haunted attractions, links to their sites, and a few tips to remember when driving this Halloween.





Driving Tips

  • Watch for kids at intersections and anywhere near the street or road, even if you are not in or near a residential area.

  • Be alert and drive slowly when going through residential neighborhoods.

  • If you live in a residential neighborhood where trick-or-treaters are likely to be about, use caution when pulling in and out of driveways.

  • When leaving and returning to your home, make sure to turn your headlights on, even if it isn’t dark yet.

  • Make a trick-or-treating map! If you are a parent and are traveling to take your child trick-or-treating, consider the size, layout and location of the neighborhood you plan to visit, and decide on a route to take. See what areas are available nearby for parking, if possible, to help save on gas and cut down on the vehicular traffic on secondary and residential roads, which can tend to be narrow, and on Halloween, can become crowded and dangerous very quickly.

A finales del mes pasado, vimos como se filtraba en las redes sociales (por ejemplo en Reddit) que Chrome estaba trabajando en un modo oscuro para macOS y Windows 10.

Eso significa que el navegador es capaz de activar el modo oscuro por defecto, teniendo en cuenta los ajustes que tengas en tu sistema operativo. Ahora que Chrome 73 ha llegado oficialmente, los usuarios de macOS ya pueden disfrutar de esta funcionalidad.

Revisa primero si tienes instalado algún tema

Como decíamos, a partir de ahora, Chrome mostrará automáticamente el tema de color más oscuro si así lo tenemos habilitado en Mojave. Al menos de momento, parece que esta opción todavía no está activa para los usuarios de Windows 10.

Para activar el modo oscuro en macOS, simplemente tenemos que ir a Preferencias del Sistema > General > y en la parte superior seleccionar el "Aspecto" que aparece a la derecha.

General

Precisamente, justo hace un mes Chrome lanzó una nueva colección de temas oficiales, permitiéndonos elegir entre decenas de combinaciones de colores. Uno de esos temas, llamado "Just Black", ya anticipaba el ansiado modo oscuro.

Chrome 73 ofrece soporte para las teclas multimedia que aparecen en algunos teclados

De hecho, si has utilizado alguno de estos temas tendrás primero que deshabilitarlo (dentro de los ajustes de Chrome) si quieres que se active por defecto en modo oscuro.

Esta no es la única novedad que trae consigo Chrome 73, y con esta actualización podremos agrupar y organizar mejor múltiples ventanas. La compañía asegura haber resuelto varios problemas de seguridad y ahora también ofrecen soporte con las teclas multimedia que incluyen algunos teclados.

          Detox Reveals Secrets Behind the Best F***ing Song to Ever Be on RuPaul’s Drag Race      Cache   Translate Page      

The RuPaul’s Drag Race fan base can be argumentative with each other about a lot of topics surrounding the show, however its universally agreed on that All Stars 2 was one of the best (if not the best) season to ever exist.

 

 

There are several reasons as to why this is true. The irresistible cast, the challenges, the unforgettable lip syncs, and of course… “Read U, Wrote U”.

 

 

“Read U, Wrote U” has become an iconic RPDR song due to the lyricisms that each of the final four queens (Detox, Alaska 5000, Katya, Roxxxy Andrews) exhibited. Make fun of Roxxxy’s verse all you want, but its legendary and one that is burned in our heads for eternity.

Detox, 33, recently made a video where she invited fans into her new home outside of Chicago. She talked about “Read U, Wrote U” during the footage and how it all came together.

 

 

“Nobody heard each other’s lyrics, nobody heard each other’s verses until the night before we went in to do rehearsal,” she reveals. “When they gave us our iPods with that track [“Read U Wrote U”] on it, we were all sitting around this little table with an umbrella, smoking cigarettes, dying. It wasn’t even finished, but everyone on set was like, ’This is going to be fucking epic,’ and it was.”

 

 

Facts are facts.

------------------------------------------

THE QUESTION:

IT IS TIME TO ALL BIG TEN VARIOUS THINGS

Seth: Are we making a lineup or just five guys and shoehorning them into positions? And does our lineup have to match what the guy's primary role is?

Brian: Lineups should be realistic but not dogmatic.

Seth: So Happ at point guard is...

Brian: Incorrect.

All right, basics first. All Big Ten. Let's just take it as read that everyone has Cassius Winston.

Seth: He's pretty good. It is infuriating that he's not on draft boards.

My pet stat this year is "%PAst" ie percent of a guy's points from the field that came off assists. It's a way to spot the Just a Shooters wracking up points off open looks someone else created for them. Here's a list of the top 15 Big Ten players this year with at least 100 FGAs by %PAst:

image

Every Michigan State starter except Winston made this list.

Alex: I really like this stat, Seth. Good idea. Who’s at the bottom?

Seth: Geo Baker, Shot Taker.

image

Seth: X is second to last. All hail Zareem Xabdul-Sabbar.

Brian: Of course Geo is last. The most interesting name on the get your own list is Andres Feliz.

Seth: That is deeply unfair to Isaiah Washington, founder and CEO of Assists & Bricks Dot Com, but I concede your point.

One of the quiet things about this Big Ten season that we haven't said out loud is that Michigan caught several teams at their worst versions of themselves. Not Michigan State--Langford was replaceable and the Ward injury merely prevented Izzo from playing the wrong center in his two biggest games. But we played After Copeland Nebraska, Early December Purdue, got Illinois when they were still playing Kipper Nichols and were just starting to discover Dosunmu, got IU twice during their midseason 1-12 swoon, and faced Brad Davison the game after his douchebaggery made national news. We even got Northwestern without Law, though we also got Northwestern on the road before the collapse.

Ace: I was gonna say Nojel Eastern, who maybe should look for it less.

Alex: Anyways, I feel like the Carsen Edwards discourse has moved too far in the "he's actually not that good" direction. To me, a guy who leads his team to a Big Ten title while leading the conference in scoring average by a comfortable margin is a no-brainer first-team selection. He takes bad shots and wastes possessions, and it can look pretty rough at times, but he's as much of a lock as Ethan Happ.

He's also slightly more efficient than Happ on slightly lower usage.

[After THE JUMP: An all-fives all-conference list?]

------------------------------------------

image

Edwards has to make our list. We don't have to put him at PG though. [via Hammer & Rails]

Ace: Agreed. I thought the toughest part of picking guys this year was that outside of Winston there isn’t much in the way of guys who are both high usage and high efficiency. Adjusting for role is very much in the eye of the beholder but I lean big usage guys this year.

Brian: I dunno. In Big Ten play he's shooting 40/30 and has a 100 ORTG.

Alex: There's also no way anybody can hope to be efficient at the Happ / Edwards level of usage unless they're First Two Months Of His College Career Trae Young.

Ace: Edwards is still the #5 most valuable player in the Big Ten by PORPAGATU.

With three low-usage guys above him, so it’s not all that.

Brian: If this is a whole season thing than he's probably good enough since he's got 107 for the season.

If it's just Big Ten play... ehhhhh

Alex: Purdue was second in points per possession in Big Ten play with Edwards using over a third of their possessions while he was on the floor (and he rarely sat).

Ace: I think you’re underestimating how hard it is to post a 100 ORtg on 34% usage when surrounded by a couple shooters and… not a whole lot else. Yeah. Like, I don’t think anyone here is confused about who’s mostly responsible for Matt Haarms posting a 136 ORtg in the conference this year.

Brian: I'd be more amenable to that argument if Edwards had a good assist rate. I don't think he drove much of the rest of the team's efficiency.

Ace: Ooooooh, incorrect. A guy that liable to pop off a jumper off the bounce changes the entire approach of a defense. He also posted a decent assist rate, but his gravity is really what does it. I love Ryan Cline but he needs somebody to play off.

Brian: Cline's able to curl off screens and hit absurd contested looks. He's the Just A Shooter of the year in the conference.

Ace: No argument here, I just don’t think that earns you first-team all-conference. Purdue without Edwards would be a wreck.

Brian: Early in the year probably, but they had several different guys come on and late in the year it felt like Purdue was badly hurt by Edwards taking tons of garbage shots.

Ace: Big Ten play PPP:

Edwards on: 1.12
Edwards off: 0.99

Brian: Like, they wouldn't even run offense, Edwards would just pop a three with 20 seconds on the clock.

Ace: QED.

Alex: I feel like reasonable minds can differ as to how much to knock Edwards for his half dozen horrible possessions per game, but if a guy who's the best scorer in the league wins a conference championship, he has to be on the first team.

Ace: When he’s not on the floor, 10% fewer of their shots come from beyond the arc. Dude drives that offense.

Seth: The Big Ten has three or four obvious All Big Ten players and none of them are at the two so whatever, Edwards is in.

Ace: Edwards is obvious.

Alex: I think there are three obvious ones: Winston, Edwards, Happ.

image

Won't be missed. [Marc-Grégor Campredon]

Seth: Does Ethan Happ have to be a lock? On an MVP level, sure, without him Wisconsin is a puntaholic football team without a quarterback, but Bruno Fernando is a major upgrade defensively. If I'm adding one of these guys to my team...

Ace: You have to include Happ. I have no clue how Wisconsin is remotely this good.

Alex: Wisconsin did have the best defense in the Big Ten (per points per possession in league play).

Seth: /giphy garbage program

Alex: Happ had absurd block, steal, and rebound rates before he had to put the team on his back these past two seasons. I could see an argument for adding both Fernando and Happ.

Ace: Yeah, considering both play on teams that run out two bigs, I don’t see a problem with including them both.

Seth: Right, I don't want to disclude Happ so much as give Fernando his due.

Alex: The question of who to add next to Winston / Edwards / Happ is a difficult one for me. Fernando definitely deserves to be in the conversation but I'm not entirely sure I'd pick him.

Ace: My question is where that leaves Lamar Stevens. Another high usage/middling efficiency guy but he was by far the most important piece of that surprising PSU team, took on a huge load, and played strong ball at both ends.

Alex: Michigan is in the (somewhat enviable) position of having too many guys who are really good with nobody being particularly outstanding relative to the others.

Brian: The last thing on Edwards. ORTGs vs the other tourney locks in the league: 82, 120 (Iowa), 59, 111, 86, 86.

Ace: If we’re picking out games against good teams those might get ugly for a lot of dudes.

Brian: Not that ugly. He was flat horrible against the top of the league.

Ace: Iggy had a legit 0 in the first Wisconsin game, if we’re cherrypicking. Regardless, not including Edwards would be nuts.

Seth: Stevens's game is ugly. He took 274 two-point jumpers this year. #2 in the league is Happ with 150. Matthews had 124.

Brian: I'm not into going with the high usage guy on a bad offense.

Alex: Stevens gets buckets on a crappy team.

Ace: Name another good scorer on Penn State.

Alex: He's not a first-team guy to me.

Ace: He also defended 3-5 pretty well. Guarding the 5 won the Michigan game.

Brian: Is the guy shooting 47/22 a good scorer?

Seth: Do Penn State fans call them buckets or are they bubbies or something? Buckies.

Ace: It’s useful to include volume there. He takes a ton of twos that he makes at a solid rate given the difficulty; he doesn’t take many threes.

Alex: If he can get 20 points a night, he's a good scorer.

Seth: Inny rims.

Ace: Teske took more threes in conference play.

Alex: Maybe not an efficient one. But to me that's not exactly the same thing.

Seth: Net ticklers.

Ace: I’m still not sure I’d include Stevens on the first team but dismissing him as a guy who scores because he has to isn’t fair to him, I don’t think. He had to drag that offense most of the year.

I also don’t love the options on the wing.

Brian: It's hard to judge a couple of the Iowa guys because of defensive issues and they had a balanced offense, but I'd think about Wieskamp and Cook.

Seth: I don't think we should be that afraid to take Ignas Brazdeikis. He doesn't share but he also doesn't turn it over. He cans threes, gets to the rim with a modicum of help, gets to the line, and fit right in on the best defensive team in the league.

image

How bout a little appreciation eh? [Paul Sherman]

Ace: Tyler Cook of the 96 conference ORtg? That Tyler Cook? I’ll take Stevens or Iggy over him.

Brian: Wieskamp: ~25% assisted inside the arc, 56% from two, 43% from three, good FT rate.

Ace: Ditto either of Purdue’s gunners over Wieskamp.

Brian: Cook: whoops! Wieskamp creates for himself more than Cline and has the same ORTG, so I'd favor him.

Ace: I like Wieskamp but Cline’s ability to hit from range and on the move is game-changing and Eifert is super-efficient with strong defense. Purdue’s defense vs. Iowa’s defense. I don’t think either guy is Dakota Mathias on defense but they’re closer to that than Wieskamp.

Brian: I don't know how much of that is Wieskamp and Cline, respectively.

Ace: I’ve been impressed with Cline’s off-ball work. To Wieskamp’s favor, however, I’ll add that he isn’t working alongside any perimeter defender in the same league as Nojel Eastern. I’m sure that helps make Purdue’s guys look better.

Brian: The other guy who pops out as a 4 is Jordan Murphy.

Ace: …albeit while somewhat destroying their spacing on the other end. I can’t argue for a Minnesota player this year.

Brian: Can't shoot, but top FT rate in the league, A rate higher than TO rate, 12% OREB rate, 27% DREB rate.

Alex: I would take Murphy over Stevens if I had to choose.

Seth: I can respect what Jordan Murphy does even if what he does is technically charging.

Ace: Murphy was slightly more efficient that Stevens with ten points lower usage.

Alex: Can’t say I can recall a much better rebounder than him.

Ace: On a worse team. Great on the boards, though.

Brian: Drawing fouls is an important skill.

Ace: Super-high defensive rebounding rate doesn’t do a lot for me, to be honest.

Brian: But if I'm thinking about Jordan Murphy at the 4 you might as well go with Bruno

Alex: I don’t know that we have to have a wing or wing-type guy. Yeah.

Ace: A real basketball team does. And yeah, I think we’re arguing Bruno in here.

Winston/Edwards/Wing-Type Substance/Fernando/Happ?

image

Made it! [Sherman]

Alex: I wouldn’t have a problem with Winston, Edwards, X, Happ, Fernando if someone advocated for that.

Ace: I was going to say that if we threw out positions the next two guys I’d want to include are X and Teske. But you can’t have Happ/Fernando/Teske out there.

Seth: If he had started all year would we be talking about Xavier Tillman in that pile of forwards?

Brian: Yes.

Ace: Without a doubt. I think he should’ve make third team over Ward.

Brian: Haarms was also a giant impact guy in 20 MPG.

Ace: Also kinda lost his job.

Brian: He got it back for the stretch run and killed it down the stretch.

Seth: /Another nearby 7'2 guy with elite defense who can hit threes waves his arms, but everyone ignores him.

Ace: If we’re looking across the whole conference season, I’d lean Dererk Pardon for bigs. He was quietly quite efficient.

Alex: It isn’t a real team. I am a proponent of picking the best five guys.

Ace:

Brian: Ok, X it is.

Seth: The problem with picking the best five guys is most of the candidates are fives.

Ace: I feel like there should be a wing. Most teams play 3 or 4!

Brian: Justin Smith Against Michigan State That One Time

Ace: Iggy could absolutely count as one if we’re reaching this far. Should, in fact. Also, and I really hate this, but Matt McQuaid deserves a mention.

Alex: Depending on how much you weigh team success, Iggy should be the pick over a Stevens, Murphy, whoever.

Seth: /giphy mcpoyle

Ace: I’m personally torn between Iggy and Stevens.

Seth: McQuaid from the field is 87% assisted. He's a good defender, but Charles Matthews is a better one who can, you know, actually create his own shot.

Brian: uh... Romeo Langford?

Alex: Iggy is an efficient two-way player who led the second-best team in the league in scoring. Definitely deserves a long look for a first-team spot.

Ace: Despite the lack of shooting, Romeo was good, just not as good as the hype.

Certainly a second- or third-team guy.

Brian: I'd rather have a knockdown three shooter who can also create some shots I guess.

Alex: Archie’s utilization of Romeo was criminal.

Brian: So Iggy or Wieskamp to me.

Alex: Is Fernando unanimous for us?

Brian: Shoehorning him into the 4 but yes.

Ace: Not saying he’s a totally crazy choice, but Wiescamp didn’t even make honorable mention for the coaches or media.

Jordan Poole made both lists.

Brian: Oh wait what about Ayo Dosunmu?

Seth: I kept trying to find a spot to bring him up.

Ace: Third team for me but he’s fun as hell.

Brian: meep meep

Matthews was not all-defense I don't give a single damn about the actual lists

Seth:

Alex: So we have Winston-Edwards-Fernando-Happ?

Ace: Oh, the all-defense list was criminal.

Alex: Unless Brian boots Edwards.

Brian: No

Seth: Winston-Edwards-Iggy-Fernando-Happ. Or we can go Winston-Edwards-Wieskamp-Fernando-Happ and stipulate that Michigan would beat this team.

Brian: I dunno Ace just pick someone and let's move on

Ace: Please don’t put my name on a first team with Wieskamp. Iggy.

Brian: Fine.

Great conversation.  How dumb can Izzo possibly be to start langford and ward when anyone with a pulse knows Tillman and mcquaid are better and on the bench?  You can't just look at the fact that Langford and ward averaged more points and other stats than their replacements. Tilman and mcquaid are eye test winners. Anyway too bad we couldn't have faced a depleted msu with Langford and ward in the lineup or we probably are hanging a banner.

Correct. 

They probably lost a little bit of defensive know-how right after the injury (even though their defensive numbers improved, it was largely due to a change in three point luck).

They lost a little bit of three point shooting but they gained a lot by not having Langford as a ball-stopper that takes too many long twos.  Langford had a bad 105 Ortg on a whooping 25% usage.  Henry is right there in Ortg (102) but he only uses 15% of possessions which leaves more for the high efficiency guys (i.e. the rest of the team).

MSU was definitely better off losing Ward and arguably better off losing Langford, especially as Henry has improved his defense and rebounding.

They have a near perfect starting five in terms of knowing and playing their roles.

As much as we rag on Izzo, he deserves a ton of credit for developing Winston into the best player in the conference, McQuaid and Goins (a former walk on!) into bona fide three and D difference makers and Tillman into arguably the best pick and roll defender in the league and a highly efficient offensive player in his own right (the value of his good FT shooting can't be underestimated).

 Good stuff. I personally enjoyed Ace roasting Bryan with his take and supporting evidence of the appropriateness of Edwards on the first team.  Ace brought an informed opinion, and Brian brought semi-informed dissent with a touch of snark. Point for Ace today.

Edwards had a brutal stretch in February and I feel like Brian is weighing those performance too heavily.  And to Ace's point, undervaluing the gravity with which he brings to the game: the way defenses focus on him which opens things up for other guys and the way he affects defenses in more ways than can be counted with individual stats. his teams on/off stats demonstrate that well (although I'm not sure how many possessions the "off" stats include).

          Alessia Marcuzzi: ecco cosa ha fatto subito dopo lo scandalo del video di Corona      Cache   Translate Page      
alessia marcuzzi isola dei famosi chi settimanale

Da quando Fabrizio Corona ha fatto il suo intervento a L'Isola dei Famosi è successo di tutto. Settimanali, siti, programmi tv, opinionisti, vip e presunti tali hanno detto la loro sull'argomento, c'è stato persino un cambio di autori nel reality, ma Alessia Marcuzzi sembrava scomparsa.
Oggi il settimanale Chi ha svelato cosa ha fatto la conduttrice de L'Isola dei Famosi nei giorni successivi alla bufera mediatica.

"Dopo la bufera del caso Fogli e Corona all'Isola dei Famosi, la conduttrice ha scelto il silenzio e con il marito è volata a Londra. Un viaggio provvidenziale per sottrarsi alla gogna mediatica e per consolarsi a suon di shopping.

Non parliamo del licenziamento della capo progetto, né delle reazioni dei dirigenti Mediaset o dell’indignazione (cauta) delle opinioniste Alba Parietti e Alda D’Eusanio, ma del modo in cui Alessia Marcuzzi, conduttrice del programma e inevitabilmente capro espiatorio di ogni suo inciampo, ha affrontato gli attacchi relativi alla vicenda: lasciando, anche se per poco, l’Italia.

La Marcuzzi? Non pervenuta. Non un’intervista, non un comunicato, non un commento. In linea con le direttive aziendali, Alessia ha scelto il silenzio totale. Il che, invece di smorzare le polemiche, ha avuto l’effetto di enfatizzare le sue “colpe”: il non essersi dissociata da Corona e la poca empatia per Fogli, uno di famiglia per lei (Roby Facchinetti, compagno dei Pooh, è nonno di sua figlia Mia). E su Instagram l’ultimo post (gli auguri a un’amica) ha dato il “la” a un coro di insulti più o meno argomentati.

Ma forse Alessia non li ha neanche letti, perché nel pieno della bufera è “scappata” a Londra con il marito Paolo. Il fantasma del Canna-gate aleggia ancora nei suoi ricordi e Londra è il rifugio ideale per non pensarci (o provarci). Perché qui si è sposata, perché qui ora vive e studia il figlio Tommaso, perché qui è il paradiso dello scacciapensieri per eccellenza: lo shopping. Al resto? “Ci penserò domani”, come cantavano i Pooh."

Шепчущий во тьме в поисках своего принца Alexander

https://media.giphy.com/media/10SthGoxE3moZq/giphy.gif
Старший сын царя Всеволода, наследный принц страны Эвраук. Александр любимчик народа. Его уважают, ценят, им восхищаются. И свято верят, что в его руках страна не пропадет, а ещё больше укрепит свой особый менталитет.
Говорят, что обычно дается либо ум, либо красота. Цесаревич является исключением по каждому доводу. Образован, начитан, разбирается в каждой тонкости своего великого дела. Александр просто не имеет право не оправдать возложенных на него надежд, именно по этой причине он должен быть идеален во всём. Будущий принц должен умет делать всё, и охотно обучать этому свой народ. Нет сферы жизни или науки, которой бы цесаревич не интересовался и не пытался изучить по большей части самостоятельно. 
Родители с детства прививали основы правления, стараясь подготовить будущего царя как можно лучше. А также пытались ему помочь осознать и обуздать свою звериную сущность. Первое обращение в медведя произошло в 10 лет, что гораздо позже сверстников. И хотя многие боялись, что проявления звериной сущности не произойдет, вскоре осознали, что все опасения напрасны. (Ген зверолака в царской семье наследный: именно по этому гену определяется достоит будущий цесаревич страны или же его следует изгнать).  В облике белого медведя Александр намного крупнее остальных сородичей и сильнее. А ладит со звериной сущностью так, что ни одному врагу не должно и в голову прийти напасть на Эвраук.
Мужчина прекрасно подготовлен чуть ли не по всем аспектам жизни. По сей день не перестает изучать военное дело, не смотря на то, что прошел войну, а также постепенно начинает набирать обороты на политическом поприще и показываться в свете. Долго изучая свою страну, её особый менталитет, народ и историю; стараясь вникнуть во все аспекты существования своего будущего царствования – Александр только с некоторых пор стал помогать отцу в правление, давать советы, высказывать своё мнение, принимать народ, издавать некоторые незначительные указы. 
С виду может показаться, что любое дело дается ему с легкостью, а проигрыши вовсе не для него. Вот на любовном фронте точно. Александр прекрасно совмещает прекрасное с полезным и слывет на весь мир знатным Казановой. Это еще один способ добывать необходимую информацию.
Мужчина рассудителен, хитер, в силу своей звериной сущности - жесток. Но этого никогда не бывает без причины. Все, что делает цесаревич только во благо своего государства и его подданных. Привык доверять только семье. Имеет собственную команду, для решения политических вопросов. Для всей команды твердый, иногда жесткий руководитель. Они его боятся, но куда больше уважают. Но точно ни один не сомневается, что если Балконский возьмется за работу, то сделает ее лучше любого из них. Сейчас до цесаревича доносятся не лестные слухи, что в Исуриуме творятся странные вещи, которые могут повлиять на привычный уклад мира. Александр решает лично разузнать, что творится в столь далекой стране, ведь изменения коснуться каждого и прежде всего Эвраук и его народ. Беря псевдоним Алекс Уайт, мужчина направляется в Эльбрук, в самую гущу событий.


          Hooray! Rondo Nominations and other MFTVM News!       Cache   Translate Page      

If you follow my social media, you may have seen that I was nominated for three Rondo Awards this year! But in case you haven't, I just wanted to spread the word on ye old blog, with a little info on how to vote.

Let me begin with the nominations themselves. I have to admit, it was really great to wake up last Friday morning and see my name all over the ballot. It means a lot and I feel so honored to be listed in the following categories, because the competition is wonderful!
You can look at the ballot for the Rondo Awards, and send your votes to taraco@aol.com.

OK, I haven't won anything, but seriously, thanks to the folks who nominated me!
I won't go into too much about why each nomination is really important to me, but let's just say talking to people (whether in person or even on a podcast) has always been a nerve wracking experience, so to see the support from the horror community that I'm doing OK at some of these things just really means a whole heck of a lot.

So, big thanks to any and everyone who listens to, or attends anything where you have to hear me jabber for a couple of hours. It's been great and I truly appreciate each and every one of you, even if you don't vote for me (but you know, vote for me). There are so many great podcasts, commentaries and events to choose from, so go look and vote with your heart!

Also, if you haven't seen, I was recently interviewed by the Los Angeles Times in a piece all about TV movies! You should check it out!

(The LA Times brought a photographer to my lecture, but the photos didn't make the article. Here's some outtakes my friend took! The second snap is me with the powerhouse we call Kier-La Janisse!)



One more piece of Made for TV Mayhem news. I've opened up an Instagram account (@madefortvmayhem) which will hopefully allow me to add a more visual aesthetic to what I'm already doing on facebook and twitter. Come and follow me, please! I'm just getting started, but I have tons of TV Guide ads, as well as some promo pics and screen grabs that I'm dying to share on a more regular basis. Plus, it will serve as another place to update everyone on podcast episodes or new blog posts or any other kind of related news.

Coming soon!
And finally: I think I'm actually almost done with my intro episode to The Trap-Cast, which is just going to be a monthly series of minisodes dedicated to the show Trapper John MD! It's time, guys.

Thanks to everyone again! I've actually half-written two reviews for this blog, so I hope I can find a little time to finish them. Til then, I have more exciting news coming soon... So please keep tuning in! Thank you!

          CINCO PERGUNTAS PARA SE FAZER ANTES DE COMPRAR UM BONG      Cache   Translate Page      


Você já fumou muitos baseados, já experimentou pencas de sedas e já entrou de cabeça no mundo dos maconheiros de plantão, tanto que até um pipe você tem, mas cá entre nós, falta alguma coisa?

TAMANHO X TIPO X NECESSIDADE: QUE SEDA EU COMPRO?

Sim, falta um bong, aquela peça de decoração que entra como uma bomba na sua mente e no seu pulmão, que entorpece a sua turma e enaltece o seu status perante a sociedade. Mas você precisa de um bong, vai usa-lo com frequência? Descubra:

Você é cuidadoso?

Pois é, se o controle remoto da sua TV está sobrevivendo com fita isolante e alguns tapas, pense duas vezes antes de comprar um bong. Independente se forem de vidro ou de acrílico, eles são frágeis e quebram com qualquer queda. Tenha cuidado ou não tenha um bong.


Você fuma muito?

Sim, se você fuma muito, vale a pena ter um bong, você pode usa-lo como alternativa ao bolatrício, para dar uma variada na forma como você consome o seu verdinho.

Você é preguiçoso?

Sim, se você tem preguiça de bolar um baseado, saiba que apenas colocando o seu beque na biqueta já é possível saborear o prazer do trago duplo que um bong te proporciona.

Você é limpinho?

Pois é, aquela água parada lá em baixo do seu bong não vai virar criadouro do mosquito da dengue, mas vai ficar com um cheiro ruim da porra se você não trocar. Compre uma bucha de mamadeira e limpe o seu bong por dentro (caso ele seja do tamanho de uma).

Você tem muitos amigos?

Pois é, um bong é um instrumento que serve para que você e seus amigos se divirtam. Isso não significa que você não deva ter um, mas implica no tamanho dele, não precisa ser equivalente à quantidade de amigos, mas se não for só pra você, que seja grande pra impressionar a galera.


          CINCO SITUAÇÕES EM QUE TER UM PAU É UM SACO      Cache   Translate Page      
Você, mulher, deve estar pensando que ter um pau no meio das pernas deve ser só alegria. De fato, é bem divertido mesmo ter esse naco de nervo, carne e pele que aumenta e diminui de tamanho, proporcionando imensas descobertas desde a primeira mijada, até a última gozadinha.

Mas então, apesar de todas alegrias que nascer com um pênis trazem para um cara, saiba que existem situações em que o nosso amigão aqui de baixo nos atrapalha e envergonha. Não, não quero tirar o meu pau fora, muito menos dar aquela famosa aquendada com Salompas, mas fica aí uma breve lista de situações em que a sua piroca tem um destaque negativo.

 

A Última Gota

Sim, você já ouviu dizer que a última gota sempre fica na cueca, e isso é um problema chato pra cacete (ops!). Então, o problema é que, eventualmente a tal gota atravessa a sua roupa de baixo e mancha a sua calça. Isso não significa que somos porcos, é bem normal aliás ver que a sua cueca branca ganhou um ponto amarelo. Problema de quem olha, mas a cara de nojinhos nos deixa constrangido.

O Zíper

O nosso bilau é um negócio frágil, por mais que a gente deixe ele em um pedestal, como se fosse um grande, imponente e maciço naco de mármore, o negocinho é sensível. E um dos lances mais complicado dessa vida é prender a pele da sua piroca no zíper da sua calça. Bicho, isso faz um cara durão chorar.



Mijar de Pau Duro

Ir ao banheiro de pau duro, pela manhã principalmente, é uma tarefa muito complicada. Primeiro porque, ao contrário das mulheres que sentam sonolentas no vaso para fazer o seu xixizinho, homens de pau duro (e sonolentos) precisam mirar e acertar a privada. O resultado nem sempre é satisfatório, e mijar no chão ou na parede se torna uma rotina.


Tesão Espontâneo

Sentir tesão é legal pra cacete. Sim, todos concordamos, mas enquanto as mulheres ficam molhadas, os homens mostram isso para o mundo. Somos reféns de nossas pirocas quando bate aquele calorzinho, o volume se destaca em nossas vestimentas e os olhares de reprovação dizem com todas as letras que somos tarados.

       

 

O Lado Favorito na Cueca

Assim como você tem o seu travesseiro favorito, o lado preferido da cama e a posição perfeita para dormir, o seu pirulito também tem um lado favorito para ficar na cueca. Seja na esquerda ou na direita, não adianta colocar do lado oposto, vai incomodar.O lance mesmo é acostumar a sua pica a dormir em qualquer lado, ou então não usar cuecas.



Pois é, esses são cinco dos pontos negativos de se ostentar uma piroca no meio das pernas, mas em compensação, podemos mijar em qualquer lugar e resolver discussões com um "pega aqui", ou um "chupa aqui, seu otário", que fazem esses lances chatos passarem despercebidos.

          Meet the Insta360 EVO, a foldable camera that shoots 3D 180º video and 360º 5.7K video      Cache   Translate Page      

Insta360 has launched EVO, a cube-style camera that shoots 360-degree and stereoscopic 3D 180-degree video footage and stills thanks to its unique folding design.

The camera features the same 5.7K video resolution and 18-megapixel still resolution as the Insta360 One X, as well as Insta360's six-axis FlowState stabilization technology. In fact, the camera as a whole has similar specs to the One X as a whole, including F2.2 apertures on both lenses, various exposure modes in video and stills, Bluetooth 4.0, 5Ghz Wi-Fi and a microSD card slot with a maximum storage of 128GB.

But the internal specs are where the similarities end. Unlike the One X, the EVO doesn't have any integrated LCD display. Instead, the camera features a hinged design that enables the cameras to capture a full 360-degree image when the lenses are facing opposite directions or stereoscopic 3D 180-degree images when the EVO is folded out with the lenses facing the same direction.

The camera itself has only a few buttons and ports on it, including a power button and a button for switching between various shooting modes and settings. On the side of the camera is the microSD card slot and a micro USB slot (unusual Insta360 didn't opt for a USB Type-C port instead).

Since the EVO doesn't have a screen of its own, the camera is dependent on an Insta360 EVO app to compose the images, change the settings and overall control the camera with more finesse than the limited on-device controls. The app will be available in the iOS App Store and Google Play Store.

The EVO is currently available for order on Insta360's website and B&H for $419.99.

Insta360 has also announced Insta360 VR, a new app for Oculus Go, HTC Vive Focus and Samsung Gear VR that will allow users to connect an EVO camera to a headset for simple wireless playback of the stereoscopic 3D 180-degree video or 360-degree video.

For phones that don't have stereoscopic playback capabilities, Insta360 has also announced Holoframe, a specialized phone display cover that will enable standard smartphones to view photos and videos in 3D with the naked eye. In its press release, Insta360 says 'It’s simple, mind-blowing and feels like magic.'

The HoloFrame is available for iPhone X/Xs, iPhone X Max and iPhone XR for $29.99 from Insta360's online shop.
