Kohler Where is Ronaldo in the big games

first_imgFormer Juventus and Germany star Jurgen Kohler has questioned Cristiano Ronaldo’s big game recordThe five-time Ballon d’Or winner ended his nine-year stay at Real Madrid for a move to Juventus this summer.However, he has yet to find the back of the net in his three Serie A appearances.And Kohler, who won one Scudetto, one Coppa Italia and the UEFA Cup at Juventus, questioned Ronaldo’s ability to perform in the biggest matches.The 33-year-old didn’t score in last season’s Champions League final and has never managed to find the net in a knockout match at a World Cup following Portugal’s last-16 exit at Russia.“There are no two opinions about Ronaldo’s qualities. He holds many records in Spain,” said Kohler, as stated on AS.“He has managed to win the major trophies. You have to pay tribute to him.“However, I must say that you rarely see Ronaldo in the decisive matches.Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.“Then he goes on to score the goal to make it 4-1, with a penalty, and wants to be celebrated for it. But that’s the way he is, too.”Despite the criticism, Kohler did acknowledge Ronaldo as a “true champion” due to his outstanding work ethic.“I talked about him to a lot of people,” he said.“Everyone is fascinated because he also works a lot on the pitch.“Only the true champions are willing to work more. That applies to Ronaldo.“That’s the difference between world-class players and the regulars.”Kohler spent four years at Juventus and he also played for Cologne, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.The 52-year-old was also a part of the Germany squad that won the 1990 FIFA World Cup and the 1996 UEFA European Championship.last_img read more

Facebook makes News Feed more personal with ranking algorithm changes

first_img Post a comment Read Google Home Hub review $999 Tidal 3-month family subscription: $5.99 (save $54) Tags Mobile Tech Industry Internet 0 Facebook has updated its prediction algorithm. Facebook Facebook has added data from surveys to better predict what pages users want at the top of their News Feed. Posts from family and friends, and news articles or videos from pages followed, will now be ranked at the very top of the page, Facebook said Thursday. The changes focus on quality of user experience over quantity of time spent on the social network, Facebook said. Surveys were used in the algorithm change, with users asked to rank the friends they are closest to, Facebook said in a blog post. The survey data is being used in addition to Facebook’s oversight of people’s likes, comments, and shares, as well as how often they interact with friends, who they have marked as close friends and how many mutual friends two users have. Facebook’s prediction algorithm also looks at friends who are tagged in the same photos, friends who react to or comment on the same posts, and friends who check in at the same places. The prediction model will continuously update, Facebook said, to keep up with any changes to favorite people or pages.

Are you lambasting Shahid Kapoors Kabir Singh or cheering for it You

first_imgShahid Kapoor in Kabir Singh.YouTube ScreenshotShahid Kapoor starrer Kabir Singh, which is a remake of Telugu hit Arjun Reddy, is being widely talked about on social media. While a particular section of media hailed the movie to be Shahid’s best film, some others criticised the flick left, right and centre in their review.Similar is the scene among the viewers. A lot of people have appreciated Kabir Singh as a well-crafted performance-based film, and a lot of others lambasted Shahid and the director calling it as one of the biggest misogynistic films.The fact remains – both the section of people are right and also wrong at the same time.First, let us talk about reasons why Kabir Singh should be appreciated.Performance-based filmDirected by Sandeep Vanga, it is one of the best movies made in Bollywood in terms of performances. Shahid nailed it with his acting while portraying the role of an ill-tempered but brilliant medical student, who eventually turns a drug-addict and almost a psychopath. It is just a movie and watch it as a cinematic brilliance. Also, Indian film industry is often criticised for not making many movies on flawed characters. And now when they did, it faces criticism again.Not all movies are meant to be inspirationalKabir Singh is being criticised on the lines of glorifying toxic masculinity and misogyny. It is being said that this movie will make youths consider such abusive behaviour to be a sign of manliness, and they may imitate the same in real life. Well, it is a movie that is based on a flawed character, and not anywhere does it appear to be an inspirational film. His inappropriate actions eventually leads him to lose his lady-love, his job and even almost his life. Yes, he eventually gets the girl back, but that happens only after he quits alcohol, drugs, and becomes a better person. Only a fool can feel inspired by such sequence of events. Not all movies are meant to be inspirational.It’s Shahid Kapoor’s job to play various rolesThe saddest part is Shahid being slammed for playing the role of Kabir Singh. He is an actor, who is expected to portray varied roles. If he can play a “perfect” man’s role in Padmaavat, why cannot he play an extremely flawed character in Kabir Singh? It is an imperfect world, and we all know such flawed characters do exist, and it is just a portrayal of the same. Kabir Singh stillYouTube ScreenshotNow, let us talk about the reasons why haters of Kabir Singh are right too.Films are a powerful mediumFilms are a powerful medium, and fans often tend to idiolise their favourite actors, not just off-screen but also on-screen. So, when someone expresses the fear that showing the abusive character of Kabir Singh in such a glorifying manner may have a bad impact on the young minds, he or she may not be totally incorrect. Like I said earlier that a fool only can be inspired by such a character, and like these flawed personalities, such fools also do exist in real world.Men cheering on Kabir Singh’s abusive behaviourA lot of people on social media have been saying that they came across men in theatres who hooted and cheered for Kabir Singh every time he abused someone or displayed his toxic masculinity to the girl. This indeed is not a healthy sign. Kabir Singh stillYouTube ScreenshotThis is how both the section of people are right and also wrong at the same time in their verdict on Kabir Singh. The critics are right when they say glorifying such characters is not a good thing to do as it may influence young minds (the fools, remember?). But, the critics also should understand that it is not the first time a flawed character is shown as a hero on the big screen (Instance: Shah Rukh Khan’s character in Baazigar). We cannot expect the directors to follow the same tried and tested path, as it will cease versatility. Also, it is not fair to expect unconventional stories from them, and at the same time lambast them when they actually come up with one. Moreover, flawed characters existed in society before Kabir Singh or Arjun Reddy were made, and they will exist even later.Talking about the other lot of people who have been slamming the critics for their opposing views, they also cannot overrule the fact that films are a very powerful medium, and it will not be surprising to see some actually trying to follow few of Kabir Singh’s atrocious antics.last_img read more

India asks Pakistan to take back bodies of Kashmir intruders approach with

first_imgReutersThe Indian Army has asked Pakistan to take back the bodies of the intruders from Border Action Team (BAT), who were killed while attempting to infiltrate the Line of Control on Saturday.The Pakistan Army has been asked to approach with a white flag as a sign of a truce. The country is yet to respond to India’s offers.”We have offered Pakistan Army to take over the dead bodies (of 5-7 Pak BAT army regulars/terrorists). Pakistan army has been offered to approach with a white flag and take over the dead bodies for last rites, they are yet to respond,” Indian Army was quoted as saying by The Times of India. “In the last 36 hours, the Indian Army has foiled an infiltration attempt by a Pakistani BAT (Border Action Team) squad in Keran Sector. Five-seven Pakistani army regulars/terrorists eliminated; their bodies are lying on the LoC, not retrieved yet due to heavy firing,” the statement released by the army read.The  Border Action Team (BAT) are smaller units of the Pakistan Army who carry out operations across the Line of Control. They are known to maim and mutilate soldiers of the Indian Army in order to ambush them. In the security operations across the state on Saturday, four terrorists, allegedly belonging to Jaish-e-Mohammed, were killed. A sniper rifle, IEDs and mines with Pakistani markings were also retrieved.The incident comes a day after the Jammu and Kashmir government suspended the Amarnath yatra and advised pilgrims to leave the state immediately. In addition to this, tourists across the state, including in hotels were asked to go back.The move came after Army officials received intelligence inputs that the Amarnath pilgrims faced a security threat. In addition to this, the security threat had increased on Friday after security personnel recovered a military-grade sniper rifle along the route taken by the pilgrims. A Pakistan Ordinance factory anti-personnel mine was also discovered in the region.last_img read more

The Shadow King is Still the Bad Guy on Legion

first_img I love Legion, but the show isn’t without its problems. Its amazing visuals and complex, twisting plots disguise the fact that the story moves very slowly, and it never introduced its ensemble cast very well. The only reason I love it so much, is because it’s so good at the other stuff. And the distance kind of fits a story where you’re not even sure which scenes are real to begin with. Even the show knows what it’s done to us at this point. The series recap we got before the episode started opened with the words, “Apparently on Legion.” I respect that kind of honesty. Once the episode picks up proper, we see the vetting Lenny had to go through once she got into Division 3. She gets interrogated by Clark, who appears to be messing with her. Trying to see how she reacts. To be fair, he has the same questions that we do. Is she the real Lenny? The one who died back in the mental hospital? Or is she The Shadow King, still using the Lenny’s body?She goes into some real uncomfortable backstory. A childhood full of abuse, crimes of desperation, addiction. Above all, she just wants to talk to David, and Clark won’t let her. He threatens to lock her in the cells below the building. She tells him the Shadow King knows where his body is. And as we see after another trippy credits sequence, where the camera flips upside down and the setting morphs into a desert road, she’s right. The Shadow King is taking Oliver to exhume his body. Only when they get there, it doesn’t appear to be the Shadow King’s body they dig up. We only see the corpse’s arm, but it looks much whiter and more feminine. Oliver takes a small sample of skin, and puts it in a device he stole from Division 3.Jemaine Clement as Oliver Bird. (CR: Suzanne Tenner/FX)Things get even weirder when Ptonomy starts questioning her. He realizes her eyes are a different color than they once were. Whoever’s body this is, it’s not Lenny’s. When he tries to dive into her memories, it doesn’t go as planned. He’s forced back out, into his own head where the gooey delusion creature crawls into his ear. One of these episodes, we’re going to find out just what that thing means. And who planted the idea that grew into it. For now, Ptonomy comes out of the memory feedback loop to find himself choking Lenny.The late title card and John Hamm’s Philosophy Time (yay, it’s back) give the episode a paranoid undercurrent. This one’s called “conspiracy,” and John Hamm describes the phenomenon of people seeing the face of Jesus in a piece of toast. It goes back to humans’ ability to recognize patterns, something that helped us avoid predators in the wild. We still have that ability, which is why, Hamm tells us, we interpret coincidence as a conspiracy. It doesn’t tie into this episode’s story as well as past segments have, but it adds some more uncertainty to the season’s overall arc. How much of the conspiracies being hinted at are really just coincidences? Most of us watching aren’t entirely trusting of Future-Syd, but are we looking for ulterior motives where there are none?Dan Stevens as David Haller. (CR: Suzanne Tenner/FX)Lenny finally does get to see David. Her smile can still creep me the hell out. She clears a few things up. She may not be The Shadow King, but she’s still being forced to work for him.The Shadow King sent her to let David know that he’s found his body. Why? Where? He didn’t share that information with her. Or with Oliver. What makes this scene extra unsettling are the brief flashes of memory, shot to look like old home video. It’s only at the end that David sees something that triggers a realization. Two kids together. That’s when the two dueling stories come together in a cool, terrifying way.Throughout the episode, it keeps cutting between Lenny’s interrogation and Farouk and Oliver’s journey through the desert. First, we think they’re going to find his body. Then, we think they’re going to find Lenny’s They do find hers, but the big surprise is what they do to resurrect her, and why she has blue eyes now. They spend a lot of time following a donut truck. Near the end, it’s revealed that the truck is delivering supplies to David’s sister, Amy, who’s in some kind of witness protection program. The next scene feels like a horror movie. It’s genuinely scary the way Oliver, acting on behalf of the Shadow King, suddenly appears in Amy’s kitchen. It’s even scarier when she tries to run, and he appears right in front of her. Who knew Jemaine Clement could do horror so well? Like scary horror, not comedy vampire horror.When he catches her, we see what the device was that Oliver stole. As he uses it on Amy, she screams in pain as she’s slowly transformed into Lenny. Only with blue eyes this time. It’s a very sad reveal, but really because of the effect it has on David. It made me wish we’d gotten to know Amy more. She had a decent presence in season one, but this was the first and last time she’s shown up this season. It’s hard to really get attached to a character when you barely see them. The scene still worked as a scare, though. The transformation was horrifying to watch, especially because of how much the scene left to our imaginations.Navid Negahban as Amahl Farouk. (CR: Suzanne Tenner/FX)That’s the nightmare-inducing moment this week’s Legion leaves us on. With these most recent episode’s the show appears to be pushing back on the idea that Future-Syd knows best. Last week, current-Syd encouraged David to toughen up to protect their love, knowing that that love is what put him in an uneasy alignment with the Shadow King. This week reminded us that even if the future needs the Shadow King to survive, he’s still evil. He’ll still need to be dealt with at some point. This episode featured two characters telling Farouk they were going to kill him. The first was Oliver, who appeared to have been moved to rebellion for just one second by an image of Melanie. That moment of consciousness surprised even Farouk. The next was David, at the very end when he realized what happened to Amy. Farouk’s made some powerful enemies. That might seal his fate even if he finds his body.Even if the big reveal didn’t pack the emotional punch it should have, Legion remains some of the most unique and enjoyable superhero shows on TV. The mystery was intriguing enough to mostly make up for the weaker payoff. The show still consistently provides meaty questions to think about and unmatched visual spectacle. I just hope this reveal means the story can take a meaningful step forward now. The last few episodes, great though they’ve been, have pretty much all been David in someone’s head, in a room in Division 3. No matter how different they make them, the story gets old after a while.

VP releases commemorative coin to mark statisticians birth

first_imgKolkata: Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu today released a commemorative coin of Rs 125 denomination on the occasion of 12th Statistics Day and 125th birth anniversary of scientist Prasanta Chandra Mahalanobis. Naidu, who unveiled the coin at Indian Statistical Institute (ISI) in north Kolkata in the presence of Union Statistics Minister D V Sadananda Gowda, said he felt privileged to be a part of the programme. Bratya Basu, the state’s information technology and electronics minister, was also present at the occasion among other dignitaries. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killed The vice president referred to Mahalanobis as the “architect” of national sample survey organization and a “visionary” who set up the north Kolkata institute. “This is a wonderfully designed coin – a fitting tribute to Mahalanobis, who was a great soul and genius statistician. I am happy to be a part of this initiative,” he said. Union minister Gowda, during his speech, said the country had been observing June 29 as Statistics Day since 2007 in recognition of the invaluable contribution of Mahalanobis. Also Read – Naihati: 10 councillors return to TMC from BJP “Mahalanobis had thought about an environment, where information would be secure and data collection would be done for professional considerations. ISI has lived up to that objective,” he said, adding that the government would be drafting a statistics policy soon after taking opinion of all stakeholders. The director of the institute, Sanghamitra Bandyopadhyay, said the institution had been facilitating high-level inter-disciplinary research in statistics, driven by real-life problems faced by the country, as visualised by its founder. An audio clip, dwelling on the three-decade-long relationship between Mahalanobis and Rabindranath Tagore, with voice-over of noted actor Barun Chanda, was also released at the institute today on this occasion.last_img read more

Meet the Middlemen Who Connect Hackers for Hire With Corporate America

first_img To gain access to an elite network of hackers, you need a hookup. You need to know a guy. And that guy doesn’t make the connection for free. To the contrary. There’s a nascent group of companies whose business it is to make that connection.HackerOne is one such company. And it’s got some mighty giant companies on its client list. Take Uber, for one. Other clients of the San Francisco-based tech startup include General Motors, Yahoo, Twitter and Salesforce.Co-founded by the former Facebook security engineer who formalized the social network’s process of engaging with the hacker community, HackerOne helps companies coordinate bug bounty programs. What that means is that it helps companies invite hackers to find vulnerabilities in their software and applications. If a hacker finds a bug, then HackerOne helps the company pay out the cash prize. It’s not necessarily easy to remit payment to a teenager hacker in Siberia who doesn’t even have a driver’s license. For the middleman service, HackerOne charges a 20 percent commission of whatever the hacker is paid.The HackerOne team (L to R): Michiel Prins, co-founder and product lead; Alex Rice, co-founder and CTO; Merijn Terheggen, co-founder and advisor; Jobert Abma, co-founder and tech lead.Image Credit: HackerOneSimilar to HackerOne, Bugcrowd connects “good hackers” with companies looking to vet and verify their security systems. BugCrowd charges clients a subscription service fee or a project-based charge — and business has been good. The San Francisco-based securities startup reported 300 percent revenue growth last year over the previous year.Bugcrowd has compiled a pretty comprehensive list of the companies that are currently offering some sort of bug identification program. They include AT&T, Dropbox, Etsy, Facebook, Microsoft, Paypal, Samsung, Snapchat, Tesla and Twitter.Related: Congress Is Trying To Pump the Brakes On Hackers Who Can Control Your Car WirelesslyGoogle has a public bug bounty program that offers rewards of up to $100,000 for hackers who can find vulnerabilities in its Chrome software. The size of a bounty slides based on the size of the bug, but most bounties range from a few hundred dollars to the several thousands.It may feel ironic to see some of the biggest names in tech jumping through hoops to get in touch with the hacker community. But more than anything, when a company liaises with the hacker community, that’s actually a sign of sophistication. No matter how good a tech team is, hackers can always make systems better.“In an ideal world … you would have bulletproof security. You would be able to hire a security team that is going to keep pace with the actively changing code and find all of the vulnerabilities. The reality is there is not a single organization on the planet that has achieved that despite massive amounts of spending on security,” says Alex Rice, the CTO and co-founder of HackerOne. “The idea of bulletproof, vulnerability-free software is just a utopia that we as an industry haven’t figured out yet.”No doubt. We live in a world where cyber attacks are as common as Mondays. Recent hacked companies include Verizon, T-Mobile, the Internal Revenue Service, Target, Staples and Sony. And the cost of those security breaches is staggering. By 2019, the cost of cybercrime globally is expected to surpass $2 trillion, according to an estimate by market research firm Juniper Research.That’s why Uber recently announced that it was offering as much as $10,000 to hackers who identify bugs in its system. Uber’s bug bounty program will be coordinated and administered by HackerOne. Last year, Uber launched a private bug bounty program among 200 security officers, and those hackers found almost 100 bugs in the transportation app’s software. Now, the ride hailing tech giant is opening its bug bounty program up to any hacker who is interested in giving Travis Kalanick a run for his money.Related: Google to Hand Out ‘Infinity Million’ Dollars to Hackers Who Break Into Google Chrome“Today there is a growing trend of large companies … who provide these bug bounties for hackers to find vulnerabilities in their network or in their application,” says Darren Hayes, assistant professor and director of cybersecurity at Pace University’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems in New York. “It’s really important that companies do this and offer an incentive to find a vulnerability, rather than one of the bad guys finding a vulnerability and doing something nefarious on their network.”Opening a bug bounty program up to the public is a sign of confidence and humility at the same time. It signals that a company is confident enough in its software to invite the best computer brains out there to find holes, but it’s also a recognition that even the best teams of software professionals are fallible.“Even with a team of highly-qualified and well-trained security experts, you need to be constantly on the lookout for ways to improve,” says Joe Sullivan, the chief security officer at Uber, in a statement unveiling its bug bounty program. “This bug bounty program will help ensure that our code is as secure as possible.”Of considerable note, Apple doesn’t currently pay hackers to find bugs in its system. Perhaps it should, though. As it stands now, if a hacker finds a security vulnerability in an Apple product, there’s not much incentive to deliver the bug to Tim Cook. “If you’re an individual who is a software developer or a security researcher and you have to choose between getting $100,000 and not fixing the vulnerability and turning it over for free to do the right thing, it’s a choice that is unfair for us to ask anyone to make,” says Rice. “There are very few people, no matter how strong of a moral compass they have, who would turn down something like that when it’s not clearly criminal or even malicious.” Hackers are, despite all of their computer wizardry, after all, only human.Related: Wall Street Teams Up to Try to Fight HackersBug bounty programs aren’t only for the Googles, Ubers and Apples of the world. Quite the contrary. Soliciting the expertise of a professional hacker can be an efficient way for a smaller business to verify it’s own network’s security. That’s because you only pay for the expertise when you have a problem.“It’s like getting a consultant to find security vulnerabilities on your network but not worrying about paying any overhead for that individual. You are only paying somebody if they find a vulnerability, which is even better than hiring some consultants,” says Hayes. “You are only paying the best of the best who can find these vulnerabilities.” March 28, 2016 Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.center_img 6 min read Register Now »last_img read more

Enroll Now for Free Within the last 10 years or so, software infiltrated almost every facet of our lives. Today, it’s with us everywhere we go. It’s in our pockets, strapped to our bodies, scanning our faces and listening to our voices.Related: 11 Big Changes to the Internet From the Past DecadeThis rapid ascent was no accident. The tech industry is obsessed with growth and market domination. Investors expect engagement metrics rocketing higher every quarter. Advertisers demand more eyeballs, more taps, more data. More is always better.To achieve those constantly upward trends, software companies keep finding new ways to capture our dwindling time and attention, often resorting to dark patterns and aggressive tactics.The result? People are overwhelmed, distracted and flat-out addicted to software — both at work and home. Things are so hilariously out of control, there are even phone apps that help you stop looking at phone apps.In the design community, a small movement has been brewing around these issues, shining a light on harmful interfaces and shady business practices. It feels like an inflection point. After years of rapid change, it’s now time to pause and reflect critically on the Frankenstein’s monsters we built.Related: Stanford Students to Apple: the iPhone Is Too AddictiveThe software design features that keep you hookedThink about the software products you use every day. They probably include all the following problematic behaviors — and you might be hooked on them more than you think.1. Notification blasts: In the always-connected era, our days are dictated by a cacophony of buzzes, beeps and badges. Every time you’re dinged by a new email, group chat, text message or push alert, it’s an irresistible interruption that steals your focus from any meaningful thing you might have been doing.In isolation, each little distraction seems excusable, but in the aggregate, it’s death by a thousand cuts. Every year it seems to get worse, with ever-more apps and gadgets vying for your exhausted eye.This is a destructive pattern that wrecks our productivity, and we’ve all just accepted it as a routine part of our day.How can we improve? For starters, turn those dings off! Then spread the peace to your friends and co-workers by changing your behavior. Don’t expect others to get back to you instantly. If you’re in charge of the tools your company uses, wean everyone off the workplace apps that encourage immediate real-time responses. Switch to products that prioritize asynchronous communication methods instead.Related: 6 Ways to Break a Tech Addiction2. Status and presence indicators: If you’ve used a chat app to work with a group, you’re probably familiar with those little colored dots that show each person’s status. Online, Away, Out to Lunch.These features appear helpful on the surface, but look closer and you’ll notice they subtly encourage bad habits. A status indicator implies you’re being watched, and that you’re supposed to be “around” — always available and reporting your whereabouts during work hours.This makes people feel anxious and glued to the app, particularly if the boss is using status to see whether people are working or not. (In reality, it reveals nothing of the sort — you can easily show yourself as “Online” while walking the dog.)Worst of all, that green dot is like an open invitation. It broadcasts that you’re at your desk, ready for interruptions. As if we needed any more of those!Related: Apple, Facebook and Google Vets Form Coalition to Fight Tech Addiction3. Vanity metrics: Back when video game arcades were big, earning a prominent high score was an impressive feat worth bragging to your friends about.Modern software designers took that high score concept and perverted it to keep people hooked on their platforms. Practically every action you take on the internet now has some vanity count attached to it. Likes, faves, followers, retweets, views, reads, claps, reactions … the list goes on and on.These counts act like a drug for your brain. When everything you say or post has a popularity measurement, you inevitably start gaming things and judging everything against the numbers.What a waste of energy. In the real world, those numbers mean almost nothing, so why do we let them control our minds? At Basecamp, we’re experimenting with removing our “Applause” feature and uncovering all the anxiety and hidden social obligations it was causing.Related: You Could be Having a Digital Mental Health Crisis Without Realizing It4. Infinite feeds: Sometimes software is designed to help people accomplish tasks. Other times it’s designed to help software companies make money.Infinite-scrolling feeds fall squarely into the latter category. Think of apps like Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn: Almost every social service relies on this idea for its core interface.What’s the business motivation behind this design? To have you stick around for as long as possible, of course! That’s why it’s the information equivalent of an all-you-can-eat buffet. And just like a buffet, you’re guaranteed to overeat every time you visit.It doesn’t have to be this way. Imagine if these apps cared about your diet, and served only a properly sized meal. One example of this was the NYT Now app. Instead of a never-ending feed, it broke each day’s news into thoughtful briefings with about eight to 10 stories total. And that was it. If you got to the bottom, you were done. Come back tomorrow. What a respectful and refreshing model.Related: Study: Constantly Texting and Checking Social Media Makes You ‘Morally Shallow’Reclaiming your most valuable currency: your attentionThere’s an underlying theme in all these features: Software companies desperately want you to stick around. They need you using their product again and again. You’re a valuable number they can report to their corporate masters, so they suck you in with subtle psychological and social tricks.That sounds troubling, but you still have the power in this relationship! Your attention is a valuable currency. Take steps to preserve it. Support the products that bring you calm instead of chaos.If we collectively push back on these bad practices and vote with our time and money, things will change for the better.

Steve Grand on alcohol almost destroying him closet sobers in gay community

first_imgGAYSTARNEWS- Steve Grand | Photo: SteveGrand.com Steve Grand has spoken about his battles with alcohol in a new interview. The Walking singer admits that while he has never considered himself an addict, his heavy drinking has threatened to ‘destroy’ his life in the past.‘It became clear to me that if I kept up what I was doing I was going to destroy myself,’ he explained. ‘I had that self-destructive tendency.’Speaking to Queerty, he furthermore added: ‘I found that no matter how much I would limit my alcohol intake before the night started, as soon as it hit my lips I wouldn’t be able to say no. I was always able to rationalize drinking more. And then I was able to rationalize drinking in the morning because I would be stressed. So I would do a shot or two in the morning to get through my day.‘I realized I started to be embarrassed that there was alcohol on my breath. All of that lead to me being like, I’ve tried to moderate and it’s clearly not something that is working for me. I don’t want to pass any judgment on people who are able to drink, but it wasn’t for me.’ Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Got a news tip?

Go back to the enewsletter COMO Hotels and Resort

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterCOMO Hotels and Resorts has opened a new hotel in Tuscany. COMO Castello Del Nero is an exceptional 300-hectare historic estate in the world-famous Chianti wine region of Italy. At the property’s heart stands a 12th-century castle featuring 50 rooms and suites with new interiors by Milanese designer, Paola Navone.This is a significant addition to the COMO Group, not least because it is the first COMO hotel to open on continental Europe. It fulfils an important ambition for the founder, Mrs Christina Ong, who has always cultivated a strong allegiance to Italy.“I have a deep affection for the Italian aesthetic. I admire how they can layer up history with modernity and come up with the most exquisite result,” says Christina Ong: “Italians may be the masters of Baroque, but they also understand the way simplicity resonates in its own unique and powerful way, from design to food.”Working with Navone, COMO Hotels and Resorts have softly adjusted the spa and culinary offerings to create a contemporary retreat offering precise service, therapeutic wellness experiences and exceptional, carefully sourced food.While the Castello’s historic terracotta flooring, fresco walls and vaulted ceilings remain untouched, Navone has introduced a lighter, more modern ‘COMO’ aesthetic to complement and enhance the period bones of the Castello without losing any of the deeply authentic historic texture.The Michelin-starred La Torre restaurant is located in the original stables of the castle in the winter, transferring to the garden terrace in summer, with all menus overseen by executive chef Giovanni Luca Di Pirro. Menus showcase gourmet Italian cuisine using the finest Tuscan produce, much from the estate’s kitchen-garden; the estate has its own vineyard, beehives and olive groves.COMO Castello Del Nero also features two informal restaurants: La Taverna and, during the summer months, the Pavilion. The Pavilion offers Mediterranean-inspired cuisine and COMO signature dishes, while traditional Italian dishes, including many Tuscan favourites, feature on the menu at La Taverna.In addition, there are tennis courts, a heated outdoor swimming pool as well as a COMO Shambhala Retreat. This is where guests will feel healed and inspired by the deep expertise for which COMO Shambhala is known, including complimentary morning yoga and therapeutic massages.For more information please visit comohotels.com/castellodelneroGo back to the e-newsletterlast_img read more

Turkish Cypriot daily in trouble over vulgar Erdogan cartoon

first_imgTurkey’s Deputy Prime Minister responsible for Cyprus Affairs Recep Akdag, called on ‘prosecutors’ in the north to bring to justice Turkish Cypriot daily Afrika for publishing an ‘insulting’ cartoon depicting a Greek statue urinating on the head of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, it was reported on Monday.Afrika found itself in hot water after publishing the cartoon, which originally appeared in a Greek newspaper, last Thursday during the Turkish president’s official visit in Athens last week. Afrika posted the cartoon under the title “Through Greek eyes”.Speaking to Anadolu agency, Akdag condemned the sketch as ‘shameful, dishonourable and vulgar’.“Those who did this will be asked to answer to the justice. I will personally do my utmost for this immorality on behalf of the Turkish Cypriot people to be punished,” Akdag said.Akdag also criticised Afrika and its columnists for lacking ‘national spirit’ and for writing not on behalf of the Turkish nation but rather “expressing the voice of the Greek Cypriots”.“Those who did this should definitely pay the price and be brought to justice,” Akdag said.This immorality and indecency, he said, was targeted not only against President Erdogan but also against the entire Turkish nation.The sketch reportedly drew the ire of representatives of the Turkish ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) as well as members of the Turkish Cypriot Revival Party, backed by Turkish nationals living in the north, who protested outside Afrika’s headquarters and placed a black wreath at the daily’s main entrance.Reactions from politicians in the north varied with some supporting the publication and others condemning it.  You May LikeLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
