    Ever tried finding a Mac to drive a 4k display? 카지노사이트주소 Yes I have a high powered 2015 MBP 15" and it does the job at 60hz with some shuddering if I get too speedy. The cheapest you can go is a Macbook with a bunch of adapters to get the image out and power in. No mini can do it with any self respect, I am putting together a mobile VC / meeting room display, 4k 65" and the simple fact is that it will be a Windows Pro device probably running on a Asus VivoMini UN65U. The mini and the pro are now both sad and expensive jokes. Maybe 2018 sees some love for the Mini, truly pathetic given the march of chipsets that have gone on by ignored by Apple that would all have dropped in to the existing chassis and totally fine port config. 바카라사이트주소 I investigated iOS, TVOS and Airplay, but I cannot find any info on Airplay 2 + Apple TV 4k allowing 4k streaming. Rather the opposite seems to be true. Neither iOS or TVOS offer external hardware VC solutions, nor could I find anything for Android. Far as I can tell for TVOS Apple is either preventing or discouraging any productivity or business apps. Android I would have thought otherwise but with the in TV versions of Android I read equally dismal reports. What would your effective 4k solution be? VC, Office docs and other meeting room basics.

    Is the "Apple slowing down older phones" a US thing? I ask because I have a 6s Plus, nearly 2 yrs old, and it does not seem slow to me. My kids use my old and battered 5s for games and YouTube, and while it is clearly slower than my 6s it is perfectly usable. Prior to this I used an old 4s, that to me remained perfectly fine until I upgraded. 인터넷바카라 Also, most of the people I know and work with have iPhones (a few even used a 3GS or whatever it was called, until about 6 months ago) and I have never heard any complaints of slow phones from them either. Yet forums and articles are full of slow iPhone stories. I hail from little Denmark, so I wonder if that’s anything to do with this discrepancy?

    Hey everyone, so I wrote a few posts here and here about my battery issues on the iPhone 6 earlier on in the year. I am glad to finally find out the truth, and I am not angry that Apple was throttling my phone without informing me. I'm just angry that they did it to cover up whatever was going wrong on their end. I say this with certainty because there was never a single update that resolved the battery performance, and in fact by iOS 11 the phone was unusable. As such, their claim that the updates were aimed at resolving battery life issues is moot. 온라인바카라 If you read my posts, I naively suspected the abysmal phone performance on low RAM here, yet in fact it was Apple behind the scenes covering up on poor energy-management software by bricking the whole phone experience. The whole time I was bothered by how consistently ineffectual the updates were. In fact in all my years of owning Apple products I had never experienced this. I know this is my experience and it may not be a typifying example of what iPhone 6 users went through but I think its good that this coming to light. Johny Ive's Apple really needs to step it up when it comes to software. Leave your comments and share your experiences.

    So I finally had a chance to check out the infamous unibrow phone today: the iPhone X. Here were my initial findings: 온라인카지노 THE GOOD As many have said, the notch isn't so bad in person. It does kind of blend in. It's alright, I guess, maybe I was just so used to looking at it in images so much over the past 6 months that it wasn't much of a shock. Interestingly enough, the ears weren't as crammed as I was expecting. I think Apple marketing actually blew it with the images, surprisingly. The status icons looked fine. The screen looked sharp and vibrant, but that was to be expected. What was a real joy to use was what I was excited about from the launch event: the multitasking. Boy was it sweet. It was almost the perfect implementation, one I've been wanting, and waiting for, in a phone forever. If they just took the Force Touch way from the previous iPhones, and allowed you to initialize it from the right edge, combine it with the X mechanism, that would be the ultimate. Having my thumb down so low to swipe between apps felt a bit awkward. As well, it was super smooth and fast. Felt very responsive and snappy to use. 온라인바카라 THE BAD Now for the bad. As expected, the side bezels were basically the same as any other iPhone. I even took a photo with the 7 next to it to compare, for all the naysayers. Bezelless my butt. The chrome frame was, pretty garish. Not sure if it was to hide the bezels in the marketing images or just a throwback to the older iPhones, but seriously? Chrome in 2017? C'mon people. If Samsung did this they would have been laughed off of the internet. Also, the combination of the all black front, chrome sides, and white back really didn't work. It felt messy and didn't balance or compliment each other at all. A jet black version would have blown this out of the water, especially with a black background. THE UGLY Well, as you can expect, I tried the X in landscape mode. 안전놀이터 So what did I find? Hey, remember all those people saying that 'nothing important happens on that side of the screen anyway'? This was literally the first 3 seconds of the first clip I opened. Yeah... And the individuals running don't move to the center of the screen. They keep running towards the phone on that side. Really sloppy built in promo video by Apple. And it just highlights the sloppy (software) design of the notch. I mean, why the hell couldn't have Apple just done this, when in landscape, via software? At least when watching a fullscreen video. I get they wanted to look different in a sea of all screen phones. I get the brand identity retention, I really do. I used to be in marketing, I know how this all works. But when Apple puts their brand over the user experience of watching a video/movie, that is bad. There is no way to slice that. All they had to do was implement some software to add 'side bezels' when watching a movie, and all would be well. Do people really need to know you are holding an iPhone X when you are watching a video? How often does that even happen? Most of the time you will probably be at home on your couch or in bed. The rest of the time you will be holding the phone in portrait, and the notch will be front and center. But forcing it to be there while watching a video, just to market yourself, is just hubris. Plain and simple. I hate to bring up this tired trope again, but I seriously doubt Jobs would have signed off on this.

    So I've been wondering what's been taking Apple so long to get Homepod ready for launch. Sure, it's almost here, but it was announced before the Google Home Max, for example, and the Max is already on the market (for all five people who wish to buy it). And they allowed themselves to miss the Christmas bumper sales opportunity. So why the delay? 온라인바카라 I THINK I HAVE AN IDEA WHY. But what are the options? 1 - Maybe Apple is just having a hard time organising the scale of production they need to meet expected demand. I find this unbelievable. Apple has the biggest clout of any company when it comes to organising their supply chain. They fund the building of whole new factories just so they can get exclusive access to the product for years to come, putting them ahead of others in the game. For Apple to be unable to organise their supply chain for such an (initially) niche new product that wouldn't even require huge numbers, is highly unlikely. After all, exclusivity (as we have seen with some version of the Watch and the iPhoneX) can be a strength when it comes to new products. It can't be supply chain and production issues. 온라인카지노 2 - Maybe Apple is just taking the time to 'perfect' the design. Nope. The outer design was set already at the announcement. Good quality speaker drivers are an established market that doesn't require redesigning for noticeable improvements in sound. Siri already listens on iPhone and Watch well enough for 'Hey Siri' commands. Google Home Max has shown that the 'tuning' of the sound to the speaker's environment doesn't take months to get right and could easily be corrected with later software updates, just like they did with 'portrait mode' on the iPhone. The delay has nothing to do with the design.   So why do it? Why miss out on the holiday season and let your only potential competitors pick up customers to the point that EVEN JEFF HAS AN ECHO NOW? What the hell is going on? And then I saw this article by Russell Brandom. The NSA's voice recognition tech has the potential to use these far-field microphones to track down individuals whenever they are nearby a device. It doesn't have to be theirs; it could just be somewhere in a house they are visiting or even just walking close to outside in an urban environment. 바카라사이트주소 THIS IS WHY APPLE'S HOMEPOD HAS TAKEN SO LONG GETTING TO US. Apple relies on the 'security' and 'privacy' narratives to differentiate themselves from the ad-reliant companies who (arguably) provide better services. Homepod has to be completely secure to maintain this narrative. And security is difficult, especially when you've got vulnerabilities like Meltdown and Spectre creeping around. So this has to be the reason. Maybe the Homepod delay wasn't directly due to Spectre and its derivatives (although I find the timing rather appropriate). Maybe there was some other software security issue that had to be plugged to make absolutely certain that Homepod was 'safe-enough' for Apple to start to allow people to put it into their homes. Either way, it certainly wasn't due to hardware and it certainly wasn't due to (normal) software; this was a security issue.

    I'm usually not a fan of most of Apples products, but sometimes you have to take a step back and admire some of the results of the decisions they make. 카지노사이트주소 AirPods... Well IMO they look goofy as hell, and probably fall out of half the populations ears. However MKBHD said in his last video...more so proclaimed he sees them everywhere, and they are most likely the most popular wireless earbuds. Is he right? I don't know. Maybe. However, it is pretty easy to notice AirPods from any other BT earbud. They stand out.  Most earbuds are black little things nestled in your ears that don't stand out to a normal person in public. They all look alike. But...not AirPods. They are white little sticks coming out of your ears. They scream, "Notice Me." It is probably why they don't even come in a black colorway. 온라인바카라 I'm sure Apple did this on purpose, because guess what? Tech YouTubers saying they are the most popular thing ever, is just free advertising. It'sactually kind of genius. Me personally, I don't see them much over here in California. But I think many folks maybe too embarrassed to just wearing walking around, because they look crazy. But then again all BT headsets kind of do.

    I'm talking about the integrated, universal TV experience. Where all your app channels get integrated into the TV view along with the ability to universal search movies, TV shows, episodes. Well, the dream died today when I tried to search for a VICE News episode and ATV(4th Gen) failed. It couldn't even bring up 'Vice News' by itself. Don't tell me that HBO NOW is at fault. 바카라사이트 https://support.apple.com/en-us/ht205321 HBO NOW is under supported apps for US region and it just Doesn't WORK. Sad! I'm starting to seriously think about getting the 4K Roku TV instead. The only thing I'd probably lose with that is iPhotos on my television, but I hardly look at that anyways.

    Chinese notch knock-offs vindicate Apple 온라인바카라 By now I’m sure we’ve all read Sam Byford’s excellent update out of MWC. That’s right: the notch is now a selling point. Kane’s supposed phone, the Leagoo S9 Pro, is just one of a tide of iPhone X clones that have swept through Mobile World Congress this week, often from little-known Chinese manufacturers competing to get products out as fast as possible. Oukitel. Doogee. Blackview. UleFone. OtOt. Ila. The list goes on — and it’s starting to include names more familiar to Western audiences. Asus’ new Zenfone 5 takes obvious notch inspiration from Apple’s latest phone, while leaks suggest that Huawei’s next flagship will follow a similar path. Add this to the list of innovations from Apple, initially panned by out-of-Touch Apple-haters, that went on to change the industry. 안전놀이터 There’s a clear pattern here that I want folks to remember Apple introduces a new innovation Anti-Apple crowd makes fun of innovation The rest of the industry follows Apple Anti-Apple crowd refuses to give Apple credit, goes on to cite obscure products from history as the true innovators. I can think of a couple of examples off the top of my head. Swipe to unlock. Samsung rips this off. Anti-Apple crowd gives credit to some obscure feature phone. Touch ID. Anti-Apple crowd write breathless posts about biometric security and how easy it is to hack. The industry adopts fingerprint scanners. The crowd gives credit to the obscure Motorola Atrix. iPhone 6 antenna lines. The crowd laughs at this. Chinese OEMs rip it off. The crowd gives credit to some HTC Phone. 바카라사이트 Headphone jack. We see what’s happening here. The crowd hasn’t accepted this one yet. But some have given credit to Motorola for dropping the headphone jack first. The notch. Rejected by the doubters. Embraced by the industry. And now in the comments for Sam’s post you see people giving credit to the Essential Phone for starting the trend. Can anyone think of other examples? You can get really into the minutia. Chinese companies rip off the shape and colors of iPhone apps and the crowd says "Apple didn’t invent rounded corners!" All of this feeds into why people don’t like green bubbles in their iMessage. Why Kanye West told an audience "If you don't got an iPhone, don't put it up. Only originals." It drags down the entire brand Why is it so hard for some folks to admit that Apple generally has pretty good design chops, and tends to be an industry leader?

    As a result of Jeff’s recent forum post on iMessage, I’ve been thinking a lot about iOS; more specifically, about its native applications. 인터넷카지노 My smartphone history consists of various different OSs and Phones [Palm Treo => iPhone 3G => Windows Phone(s) => Galaxy Note 5 => iPhone 7], so I’ve had a chance to try all of (what at the time was) the Big Three. In hindsight, my decision to leave any particular platform was fairly petty/short-sighted: I left Palm because I thought the iPhone was cooler I left the iPhone because I preferred Windows Phone’s (and/or Zune’s) design principles I left Windows Phone because I wanted Snapchat I left Android because of battery issues/how it managed background applications But there were only 2 reasons I switched back to an iPhone: Official battery case (a friend showed me his and I loved it) iMessage (a friend of mine is colorist AF and hates seeing green bubbles) 인터넷바카라 But aside from iMessage and the case, there is nothing that’s making me stick with iOS. I use a few of the other default apps (Phone, Weather, Clock, Photos, Camera, TestFlight*), but every platform has their own incarnation of those and I could survive without them. So my question to the forum is: what are the (other reasons) users stick with iOS? What applications do you prefer over the default iOS applications? And if you prefer certain iOS default apps, which ones and why are they better the competition offered in the App Store?

    Apple have got Facebook and Google in its sights with its latest move to make 'fingerprinting' and other tracking methods advertising companies use that bit harder. 바카라사이트 A lot harder actually. After the terrible press Facebook has cooked up for itself this year before and after the Cambridge Analytica scandal, this seems like great news for consumers: the freedom to roam the digital waves without a string tied to our surfboards latching us back to a bit advertising agency. But here's the thing: do we really want a web without tracking? 인터넷카지노 Tracking is what makes much online advertising so valuable for those wanting to target their products to the right audience. The more data the sellers of advertising space have on consumers, the more likely it is your products will come into contact with potential buyers. Without it, it's going to make reaching your potential customers much more difficult. We risk making the advertising that supports the sites we love completely irrelevant and ineffective - and thereby making advert-supported independent journalism financially unviable. 온라인바카라 And let's not beat around the bush here: where Apple leads, the rest of the industry follows. Restricting tracking IS going to impact Facebook and Google and the firms that rely on their targetted advertsing services. So, what do you think's going to happen? How does the internet move forward without tracking?

  • Apple have got Facebook and Google in its sights with its latest move to make 'fingerprinting' and other tracking methods advertising companies use that bit harder. 바카라사이트 A lot harder actually. After the terrible press Facebook has cooked up for itself this year before and after the Cambridge Analytica scandal, this seems like great news for consumers: the freedom to roam the digital waves without a string tied to our surfboards latching us back to a bit advertising agency.

    Do any of you think IOS 12 comes close to even the playing field or do you think Apple is in a slow downward spiral in irrelevance? My biggest beef with IOS has always been the notification system. I would say its unusable in its current state. 인터넷바카라 Grouped notifications are definitely better but are they even close to making the IOS notification mess useful? I was watching the keynote and noticed you STILL can't swipe away notifications. Instead you have to click the "clear" button aftewords. What a waste. I don't know how much all of you interact with your phone but for me notifications are KEY. There is of course a few other things that i prefer about android like androids superior sharing system, keyboard, ect but wouldn't be deal breakers for me. 온라인바카라 Of course on there are things i prefer about IOS too: Privacy,security, adblockers in safari. The on BIG thing i love about IOS is updates. You pretty much get them for like 5 years. Android is very poor in that realm. In fact if i couldn't get a Google Pixel (i would run back to IOS). Even with the pixel you only guaranteed OS updates for 2 years (with another year of security updates i believe). Samsung has beautiful hardware but their update story suck. 안전놀이터 I know this has been kind of bunch of random thoughts and all but i think apple has just kind of lost its way. Post Jobs apple is not the same company. They kind of have screwed up the Macs too. They keyboard sucks, the touchbar sucks. I dont' know about you but i don't need a "thinner mac" my 2014 13'' rMBP is thin enough. Id much prefer a bigger battery they a bendgate style Mac. The keyboard on my Mac is awesome the new ones suck. any thoughts?

    I bought a used 2011 Macbook Air that is incredibly odd. 바카라사이트주소 For some odd reason, the Air stutters heavily when running Mac OS. Its about four times slower than it should be and is practically unusable. I tried reloading it, but it's even slow when it's running the MacOS installer. I thought this might be an issue with the SSD, so I tried reformatting it, but it's still slow. The really odd part is that when I installed Windows 7, 8 and 10 on it, they all run perfectly smooth. Is there any known issue that could be causing this issue in MacOS? I've also tried PRAM and SMC resets, but it's still slow.

    So I was really hoping for a cool iPad announcement today. I loved the rumors of a slim to no bezel, all touch iPad Pro model. Sadly this rumored product did not launch today. 바카라사이트주소 Nor did the rumored new "Pro" Mac Mini and MacBook Air replacement. Does this mean there could be another event in October this year? Let's discuss. PS - Isn't it weird that the iOS devices are not announced together? If Apple were to do an event announcing 3 products, they really should put the iOS products together right?

    I'm interested in the Xr review more so now. 인터넷바카라 For those who have pre-ordered the Xs: How much value do you place on display and dual cameras? Is it truly worth $250+ over the Xr?  For those who have pre-ordered the Max: How do you feel about the screen being so much bigger than before? Do you anticipate having problems with things like reaching the corners for notifications? 카지노사이트 While I can see choosing between the Xr and Xs Max, I personally find it much, much harder to compare the Xr and Xs. The Max will offer superior battery life to either of the others. That, along with the display and camera are almost enough to warrant a pause before buying. Let's hear your thoughts below.

    At what price point will you consider to stop "giving Apple your money"? 카지노사이트 I have been a die hard iPhone fan for years, but I regrettably resorted to buying the iPhone 8+ instead of the X last year as it was the only one I considered "fair" enough for the price. I simply can't convince myself to shed more than $1000 on a phone. I upgraded from a 6+ back then, so I had skipped 3 whole years of iPhones before justifying the purchase. I was hoping the iPhone X would fail to sell, with more people like me thinking it's overpriced and wait for Apple to bring their prices down again. 온라인카지노 But as we see, with every new iteration, Apple can, and DOES raise the price of its' entry and premium models. When will iPhones be considered "too expensive" for people to actually afford? I seriously have doubts the $1500 version of the iPhone will sell... but with Apple, who knows?

    Los Angeles prosecutors said on Wednesday (Aug 22) they were reviewing a second sexual assault case involving Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey. 바카라사이트 "A sex assault case was presented yesterday to our office by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department involving Kevin Spacey. It remains under review," Los Angeles District Attorney spokesman Greg Risling said in an emailed statement. Risling declined to give any details on the latest case. Representatives for the actor did not immediately return requests for comment on Wednesday. The District Attorney's office said in April that it was reviewing a case involving Spacey dating from 1992, involving an adult male. Spacey last October publicly acknowledged for the first time that he was gay. More than 30 men have said they were victims of unwanted sexual advances by Spacey, who became embroiled in controversy last year when actor Anthony Rapp accused him of trying to seduce him in 1986 when Rapp was 14. 인터넷카지노   In October, Spacey apologised for any inappropriate conduct with Rapp but has not commented since. The fallout resulted in Spacey, who won a best actor Oscar in 2000 for American Beauty, being dropped from the final season of the Netflix series House Of Cards and erased from the 2017 movie All The Money In The World. Netflix in January reported a US$39 million (S$53 million) write-off on Spacey-related projects. London's Old Vic theatre, where Spacey served as artistic director for 12 years, said last year that it received 20 accusations of inappropriate conduct by Spacey between 1995 and 2013. Spacey is one of dozens of men in the entertainment industry and politics who have been accused of sexual misconduct in the past 10 months, partly as a result of the #MeToo social media movement.

    Ed King, a former lead guitarist for the Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd who co-wrote one of the group's best-known hits, Sweet Home Alabama, has died at age 68. 인터넷카지노 King joined Lynyrd Skynyrd in 1972, not long after the band formed, and with two other lead guitarists, Gary Rossington and Allen Collins, helped create the group's powerful triple-guitar sound prominent on such rock classics as Free Bird.  Rossington, a founding member of the band, said he was "shocked and saddened" by King's death. A notice on King's Facebook page said he died at his home in Nashville, Tennessee, on Wednesday (Aug 22). No cause of death was revealed. 카지노사이트 King left the group in 1975, two years before a plane crash killed two of the band's members and a backup vocalist. King returned to Lynyrd Skynyrd when the band regrouped in 1987 and stayed until 1996. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of the band in 2006. During his original stint, King co-wrote several songs, including the 1974 hit Sweet Home Alabama, a retort to Neil Young's Southern Man. The California native previously played with psychedelic rock band Strawberry Alarm Clock.

    YOSHIYUKI IS NOW YOSHI Kaiseki Yoshiyuki at the basement of Forum The Shopping Mall is now called simply Yoshi. The fine-dining kaiseki restaurant has also become less formal, with a brighter entrance and a simpler menu. 온라인바카라 Lunch has donburi menus from $58, but there are also three eight-course set menus for lunch and dinner - the maguro menu ($158), the wagyu beef menu ($178) and the uni menu ($188) - with sake pairings at extra cost. Except for the main course, the sets are similar with appetisers, soup, sashimi, chawanmushi and desserts. I tried the wagyu menu and, though not as lavish as the previous kaiseki meals I had eaten at Yoshiyuki, it was substantial enough. And the starters and sashimi were just as refined.   The wagyu was served in the shiizakana course - a clear broth with vegetables, tofu and thin slices of the beef. The rice course, which was supposed to be a wagyu beef don, was swapped to sakura ebi on rice instead because the tiny shrimps were in season. 카지노사이트 I would have preferred more beef, but the shrimps were good, too. WHERE: Yoshi, 583 Orchard Road, B1-39 Forum The Shopping Mall MRT: Orchard OPEN: Noon to 2pm, 7pm to 10pm. Closed on Sundays

The American-born Wang wrote in both Mandarin and English: "Praise the Lord, my 'love rival' is no longer Beethoven but it's: Wang Jiayao! We have a son today!" He added that both mother and child are healthy and doing well. The boy is their third child; they have two older daughters. Their first daughter was born in 2014 and the younger one born in 2016.   Wang married Lee, then a 27-year-old graduate student in Columbia University, in 2013.

    The boxing match between YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul on Saturday (Aug 25) was set to be, at least according to the hype, " the biggest event in internet history ". But in the end, it may have all been the prequel to another event, as the main fight ended in a draw in front of 20,000 people at the Manchester Arena. 온라인바카라 Online, the fight was watched by millions, both on the official pay-per-view YouTube channel, and on bootleg livestreams on other platforms. Neither of the men are professional boxers, having earned their fame for the videos they post on YouTube. KSI, real name Olajide William "JJ" Olatunji, has more than 19 million subscribers. He initially shot to internet fame with videos of him playing Fifa video games. Logan Paul was one of the breakout stars from Vine, a now defunct social media app on which users posted humorous six-second videos. Each comes with his share of controversies. In January, 23-year-old Paul posted a video showing the body of an apparent suicide victim , while KSI, 25, was accused of making sexist comments in his earlier videos . Both apologised in the aftermath of each case. Appropriately enough, the boxing event too was contentious. The British Boxing Board of Control put out a statement ahead of the match distancing itself from the event: "Neithe r individual is licensed by the BBBBofC and the BBBofC does not participate in such events." 바카라사이트주소    Among the fans who made it to the arena were 22-year-olds Luke Robinson and Laura Busby, both from Scunthorpe. "I've never been to a boxing match before, but we're massive KSI fans, so we thought we'd come," said Busby. "It's a really big deal for KSI," said Robinson. "It's not just a boxing match - it's personal." The encounter in the ring seemed to be important to Paul too. Referring to the uproar over the incident in January, he thanked KSI and said: "You saved my career." The match had all the trappings of a professional boxing event, from the dramatic walkouts to the trash talk. Renowned ring announcer Michael Buffer even announced the main card with his trademark: "Let's get ready to rrrrrumble!" This is the second time two YouTubers have fought in a white-collar match, in a phenomenon that aims to monetise online feuds between internet celebrities. Over the last few months, KSI and Paul have been curating the drama of their feud through social media. Adding to the soap opera, their brothers, Jake and Deji, also fought on the undercard, with Jae emerging victorious. 카지노사이트 But after six evenly fought rounds, the judges scored a draw - meaning the drama will be extended to a rematch already scheduled for February. Interviewed after the fight, KSI said: "Let's do that again, that was fun. Holy shit." Paul, too, seemed to have enjoyed the experience: "I think it's what the people want. Let's give them a motherf***ing rematch! … I feel like I won that fight, but it doesn't matter. What happened happened. The rematch is going to be f***ing crazy." It's unclear exactly how much money the participants will make, but between livestreams, ticket sales, merchandise and the promise of a repeat next year, it's likely to be a small fortune.

The British Boxing Board of Control put out a statement ahead of the match distancing itself from the event: "Neithe r individual is licensed by the BBBBofC and the BBBofC does not participate in such events." 바카라사이트주소    Among the fans who made it to the arena were 22-year-olds Luke Robinson and Laura Busby, both from Scunthorpe. "I've never been to a boxing match before, but we're massive KSI fans, so we thought we'd come," said Busby. "It's a really big deal for KSI," said Robinson. "It's not just a boxing match - it's personal." The encounter in the ring seemed to be important to Paul too. Referring to the uproar over the incident in January, he thanked KSI and said: "You saved my career." The match had all the trappings of a professional boxing event, from the dramatic walkouts to the trash talk. Renowned ring announcer Michael Buffer even announced the main card with his trademark: "Let's get ready to rrrrrumble!" This is the second time two YouTubers have fought in a white-collar match, in a phenomenon that aims to monetise online feuds between internet celebrities. Over the last few months, KSI and Paul have been curating the drama of their feud through social media. Adding to the soap opera, their brothers, Jake and Deji, also fought on the undercard, with Jae emerging victorious. 카지노사이트 But after six evenly fought rounds, the judges scored a draw - meaning the drama will be extended to a rematch already scheduled for February. Interviewed after the fight, KSI said: "Let's do that again, that was fun. Holy shit." Paul, too, seemed to have enjoyed the experience: "I think it's what the people want. Let's give them a motherf***ing rematch! … I feel like I won that fight, but it doesn't matter. What happened happened. The rematch is going to be f***ing crazy." It's unclear exactly how much money the participants will make, but between livestreams, ticket sales, merchandise and the promise of a repeat next year, it's likely to be a small fortune.

    Entertainer Wang Lei started working at a young age to support the family. His father was a drunk who beat his mother. Wang later gambled and got heavily into debt. Today, he is a respected getai veteran who also acts in movies.  인터넷카지노 His storied life is the stuff of dramas. And now it is. Wang, 57, will star in Lu Bian Ge Wang (When The Night Falls - The Story Of Wang Lei), a 10-part Hokkien and Mandarin series based on his life which debuts on the streaming platform Toggle on Aug 30. The series by film-maker Jack Neo's J Team Productions is directed and scripted by Ivan Ho, who co-wrote the hit movie Ah Boys To Men 3: Frogmen (2015). The show was launched at a celebration of his 20 years in getai at Good Chance Popiah on Aug 24. Turning up to support him were fellow getai artists as well as his family, including his wife, Madam Florence Cheng, 57, who has stood by him through thick and thin. With her standing next to him, he said: "I'm really sorry that when we had a family, I sold off our first flat in Woodlands after losing everything. Secondly, we've been married for over 30 years but we don't have wedding rings because I lost those as well. Sorry once again."   At one point, he lost more than $200,000 and was left with only the air-conditioner at home. Wang choked up at this point. He then added: "After letting her suffer for so many years, I just want her to enjoy life these few years." Neo, 58, was also at the event. Wang calls him his benefactor as it was the director who gave him his break into film. 인터넷바카라 Wang had no lines in his first two movies and so he left the script for horror comedy Where Got Ghost? (2009) at home, until his son pointed out his character had plenty of dialogue. He said: "I studied it all and memorised it thoroughly, and then on the day of filming, the director changed everything." Filming a series based on his own life was quite an emotional experience and Wang said that he "cried a few times, especially thinking of how tough life was for my mother". Asked if he had wanted to withhold anything from the screen, he told The Straits Times: "Everyone knows and I'm not afraid of how people will look at me. Everyday, I'm counselling people on Facebook on how to overcome gambling." Lu Bian Ge Wang (When The Night Falls - The Story Of Wang Lei) debuts on the streaming platform Toggle on Aug 30.

    In the hilly region of Champagne in eastern France, winegrowers are bringing in grapes early this year for a harvest they expect to be one of the best in a decade. 바카라사이트주소 The harvest began at the end of August for most vineyards instead of the usual September after a rainy winter and a summer heat -wave look set to yield a bumper crop and high-quality bubbly. Champagne wines are expected to see a sharp rise in production, up 56 per cent from last year to 3.5 million hectolitres, after several years of unsatisfying crops due to bad weather. "The last few years have been tough, this year is expected to be exceptionally good so we are very happy," said the president of Champagne winegrowers' union, Maxime Toubart. While most Champagne winegrowers are celebrating an exceptional harvest, others see the beginning of long-term change in the region. Winegrower Eric Rodez, who runs his own vineyards and operates a 1936-built traditional press, is convinced climate change is making earlier harvests the norm.   "Because of climate change, we have to be prepared to regularly harvest in August," Rodez said, noting that starting earlier is the only way to keep the uniqueness of the Champagne wine, produced with grapes that cannot be too ripe. The trend has already emerged over the last decade with three harvests starting in August rather than September. Thirty years ago, harvests in October were not unheard of. According to Toubart and the Champagne winegrowers' union, the more than 15,000 Champagne winegrowers will likely harvest between 13,000 and 16,000kg of grapes per hectare. 인터넷바카라 That leaves a comfortable margin for producers to use only the best grapes and rebuild reserves used up in recent years since the industry has agreed this year to bring 10,800kg per hectare to market. "We have never experienced this before in the Champagne region, in terms of quantity and quality," said Jean-Marie Barillere, president of the Champagne houses' union. "This will enable us to put into cellar amazing wines which will be on the market in three years," he added. Each year, 310 million bottles of French Champagne - whose geographic designation is strictly controlled as a brand - are sold worldwide while more than a billion are stored in cellars waiting for the right moment to be savoured.

    Following a surprise visit to a local bak kut teh joint, Mandopop king Jay Chou was once again spotted in Singapore, this time with his wife - actress Hannah Quinlivan - in tow. 인터넷바카라 On Sunday (Aug 26), the 39-year-old posted an Instagram photo of himself and a friend with their pet dogs. He captioned the photo in Mandarin: "At the Sentosa beach, where walking your dog on the weekends is a trend." While his 25-year-old wife did not appear in the picture, she had posted her own Instagram photos hours before Chou's post. Members of the public who spotted the couple and posted photos on social media tagged the location as Tanjong Beach Club. This is the second time Chou has been spotted in public here over the weekend. On Saturday, local bak kut teh eatery Founder Bak Kut Teh Cafeteria posted a photo on their Facebook page, where Chou is seen with his arm around the restaurant's founder Chua Chwee Whatt, who was celebrating his 73rd birthday. Chua's son told The Straits Times that Chou is a regular at Founder's Balestier branch and came with two friends and a bodyguard. Quinlivan was not with him. He stayed for 35 minutes and was treated to lunch by the elder Chua. 온라인바카라   Chou, who wrapped up the Qingdao, China leg of his world tour The Invincible last Friday, revealed on Instagram that he had hopped on a plane immediately after the concert ended. He was then spotted in Singapore. Chou, who held a sold-out concert at the National Stadium in January this year, is set to return to Singapore next month as one of the music acts headlining the upcoming Formula 1 2018 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix.

    The story: Four-year-old Kun (Moka Kamishiraishi) is jealous when his baby sister Mirai arrives and monopolises their parents' attention. Then he meets a grown-up schoolgirl Mirai (Haru Kuroki), who calls him "big brother" and asks him not to bully her. Kun also meets a mysterious former prince, his mother as a child and his grandfather as a young man. He learns about the past and gets a glimpse of the future. 카지노사이트 Japan's Mamoru Hosoda is the director, and sometimes writer, of several lauded anime hits. The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (2006) features a time-travelling schoolgirl; Wolf Children (2012) is about a mother raising her two half-human half-wolf children; and The Boy And The Beast (2015) dwells on the relationship between a powerful beast and his human disciple. At first, Mirai seems to be a departure from his previous fare as it is very much rooted in everyday life. Kun's mother goes back to work after having Mirai and his architect father tries to balance working from home with taking care of the household.   Hosoda has an eye for realistic details, from the sombre expression on baby Mirai's face to the way Kun sleeps (there's a reason why yoga has a Child's Pose). Thematically though, the film-maker is back on familiar ground as he explores what it means to be family. The point of view is a fresh one and the gentle family drama is a non-condescending and non-cutesy examination of a toddler's emotional life. The fantasy element so prevalent in his past works is not completely absent; after all, the Japanese title is Mirai No Mirai, which means Mirai Of The Future. Keeping away the ceremonial dolls properly and promptly after Hinamatsuri, or Girls' Day, becomes an entire adventure that involves Kun, future Mirai and the mysterious prince. 인터넷카지노 But the fantasy has been given a twist, one that is perfectly tailored for the young protagonist here. Is what we are seeing merely imaginative play on Kun's part? Or is there more to his flights of fancy since he is unlikely to know of his mother's and grandfather's pasts in such detail? The question is not definitively answered but what matters is that Hosoda delves into the sometimes chaotic world of a four-year-old with care and respect.

    Shoppers in Mexico City's Argentina Market got an unexpected dose of culture last Saturday (Aug 25) when they were treated to Spanish composer Pablo Sorozabal's opera La Tabernera Del Puerto. 안전놀이터 The impromptu performance by a troupe of four singers was part of a programme called Opera En El Mercado, which aims to take classical music to everyday places, the Associated Press (AP) reported. From June to November, performers will pop up to sing in many of the city's 300 food halls and 195 metro stations. Last Saturday's performers, clad in T-shirts and aprons, included music therapist Lydia Rendon, who told AP: "This is where our humanity connects - the food, the smells, the flavours - and it's even better with music." Another member of the troupe is also a market vendor. Mr Franciso Pedraza, 50, who sells shoes near the Basilica Of Guadalupe, serenaded the crowd with his strong tenor voice. Trained in opera from age 16 to 30, Mr Pedraza auditioned to join the roving opera troupe when it was doing a sound check at his market in June.   He told AP: "The voice is an instrument that you have to exercise continuously to always maintain the same range." 온라인카지노 Mr Juan Carlos Diaz, coordinator of the community cultural action programme for Mexico's national fine arts institute, said he is planning more impromptu operas next year. The programme is reminiscent of last month's effort by a Mexican theatre company, Ardentia, to bring cheer to frustrated drivers on Mexico City's congested roads. Tutu-clad dancers, twirling and twisting with their chins held high, presented 58-second shows - the duration of a traffic light - on the streets of the city. The performances ranged from ballet classics like Swan Lake and The Nutcracker to Michael Jackson's Rock With Me, reverberating from a boombox plugged into an iPod.

Tutu-clad dancers, twirling and twisting with their chins held high, presented 58-second shows - the duration of a traffic light - on the streets of the city. The performances ranged from ballet classics like Swan Lake and The Nutcracker to Michael Jackson's Rock With Me, reverberating from a boombox plugged into an iPod.

    British performer and choreographer Lindsay Kemp died suddenly last Friday (Aug 24) in Livorno, a port city in Italy's Tuscany. He was 80. 온라인카지노 The artist was known for his brilliant and subversive performances, as well as for being a mentor to famed English singer Kate Bush and the late acclaimed star David Bowie, the Guardian reported on Sunday. David Haughton, a close friend and collaborator of Kemp's for 45 years, told BBC News that Kemp had been working up until his sudden death, and called the death "a huge shock". "But if it had to happen, this was the best way. He was in a very good period - he had been working and dancing. He had no illness, he was with friends," he said. Haughton said that Kemp had reported feeling ill and then was "gone" a minute and a half later.   Some Singaporeans may remember him for his version of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Kallang Theatre more than two decades ago. The rendition shocked audiences here with its avant-garde use of nudity and sex play. A glowing review dated June 25, 1992, in The Straits Times nonetheless called the production "beguiling", and the use of nudity "integral to the spirit of the performance". Kemp, then 54, played the character of Puck, a mischievous and clever sprite in Shakespeare's play. Kemp was born May 3, 1938, near Liverpool, England. He found a passion for dance at an early age, and after watching the Ballet Rambert company perform, went to London to audition at the age of 17. After studying under expressionist dancer Hilde Holger and French mime Marcel Marceau, he formed his own dance company in the 1960s. 바카라사이트 He developed his own distinctively camp style, combining different elements of mime, dance and British punk rock. In 1972, he staged Bowie's famous Ziggy Stardust concerts in London, and then left Britain for Spain and Italy in the late 1970s. Kemp had been rehearsing with students, preparing for a tour of Italy and writing his memoirs before his death. British actor and writer Nicholas Pegg said on Twitter last Saturday that Kemp was "one of life's originals". "An artist to the tips of his fingers, a mentor and inspiration for titans... a prodigiously talented performer, and a truly delightful man."

    The Venice film festival was slammed for its "toxic masculinity" as it opened on Wednesday (Aug 29) with just one female director represented among its most mouth-watering line-up in decades. 온라인바카라 With Hollywood effectively turning the festival into its launchpad for the Oscars with new films by Damien Chazelle, the Coen brothers, Alfonso Cuaron and Lady Gaga's much-hyped screen debut, feminists have lashed the organisers for choosing only one film by a female director. It is the second year in a row that Venice has featured just one film by a woman among the 21 vying for the Golden Lion top prize. Festival director Alberto Barbera had declared that he would "rather quit" than give in to pressure for a quota for women after the Cannes, Toronto and Locarno festivals pledged themselves to gender equality. But his stance - as Venice bids to rival Cannes as the world's most important festival - was lambasted by an alliance of European women filmmakers. "Sorry, but we don't buy this anymore," said the European Women's Audiovisual Network in an open letter earlier this month. "When Alberto Barbera threatens to quit, he is perpetuating the notion that selecting films by female filmmakers involves lowering standards." 카지노사이트주소   Others blamed a streak of Italian "toxic masculinity" that saw actress and #MeToo campaigner Asia Argento pilloried in her homeland for accusing Harvey Weinstein of rape. But on Wednesday, Barbera seemed to soften his position considerably as the head of his jury, Oscar-winning Mexican director Guillermo del Toro, threw his weight behind the 50/50 by 2020 campaign launched by women stars and directors at Cannes. "For me the goal is clear and has to remain 50/50 by 2020," the director told reporters in Venice. "I think 50/50 by 2019 is better. It is not a matter of establishing a quota... (but) it is extremely important to call (under-represenatation) out. For many decades and centuries it had not been called out."

In a tweet following the announcement, the creator wrote: "Excited to show you guys the final chapter in Elliot's journey. It's going to be sad to say goodbye to Mr Robot, but it'll be sadder to say goodbye to all the fans." 안전놀이터 The first season of Mr Robot was a buzzed-about and critical success, garnering numerous award nominations and wins, including a Golden Globe for best television series drama and an Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a drama for Malek.

    Columnist and cookbook author Cathy Barrow and writer Kristen Hartke recently joined The Washington Post Food staff to answer questions about all things edible. Here are edited excerpts from that chat. 카지노사이트주소    Q: I have beautiful celery in my garden. What is the best way to save it for Thanksgiving stuffing? Should I dice, then freeze, or freeze the whole stalks? If diced, how best to dry it before freezing? A: Celery, because it's mostly water, doesn't like the freezer. Once the diced or whole stalks emerge from the freezer, the water is released and you're left with (very aromatic) limp bits of celery. If using the celery for soup or to scent stock, it will be useful, but if you hope for that crunch in your stuffing, I'm afraid you'll be disappointed. - Cathy Barrow Q: I bought what I thought was a pint of shishito peppers at the farmers market, but now I'm thinking they're either very hot shishitos or birds eyes. I've thrown a few into my meals throughout the week, but thought I'd see what folks in here would do with a big batch of very hot peppers. A: Probably the first thing I would do is to freeze some of them, because, much as I love hot peppers, a big batch probably won't get used up that quickly. Just spread the whole peppers on a cookie sheet and they'll freeze solid, then you can pop them into a freezer-safe container and defrost and cook with them at will during the winter. You can also pickle them. - Kristen Hartke  바카라사이트주소 Q: I made a pureed sauce last night for dinner and had lots of leftover, so I decided to freeze it. However, I'm not actually sure if it's a sauce that can be frozen and then thawed to its original glory. It's basically made of pureed jalapenos, mayonnaise, sour cream, a bit of lime juice, and olive oil. I'm concerned because of the sour cream (and maybe mayonnaise?) Should I be OK, or should I just go ahead and toss it out?   A: Neither mayonnaise nor sour cream are good candidates for the freezer. A sauce made with both would keep in the refrigerator for two or three days, surely, but if you have already frozen it, I'm afraid it will need to be tossed. - C.B. Q: I'm new to lentils - after discovering and enjoying them from a restaurant, I purchased a bag (Whole Foods store brand red lentils) to add variety to my salads. The first time I cooked them, I followed the instructions on the bag precisely. They boiled over and turned to mush, so I threw them out. The second time I cooked them, I followed the instructions on a Washington Post recipe. While they didn't boil over this time, they too turned to mush. What am I doing wrong? Should I purchase a different type of lentil? Should I cook them in a much larger pan than the sauce pan I'm using? I want to be able to cook them but at this rate will never buy again. A: Red lentils . . . turn to mush! A beautiful, wonderful mush. That's pretty much the idea with them. If you want lentils that don't, you should get brown, green or black ones. - Joe Yonan Q: I want to make some sandwiches that I could take on a flight in a couple of days and I would like to avoid meat. Ideas? Should we consider a different savoury snack instead of sandwiches? A: One of my go-to traveling sandwiches is just a bunch of mixed roasted veggies (oil, garlic, salt, pepper) - in the summer I use squash and eggplant - combined with goat cheese, herbs and whatever other condiments you like. It's simple and holds pretty well. - Becky Krystal 안전놀이터 Q: I moved six years ago and there are several boxes of pasta that moved with me and remain unopened. Does pasta expire? Is it safe to eat? Will it still taste OK? A: Dried pasta can keep for a long time - it has no water content, so I wouldn't be overly concerned about it myself. If it looks or smells funny - and, again, I can't imagine why - then pitch it, but, otherwise, I suspect that it's fine. - K.H. Q: My uncle and his husband give out home canned stuff for holiday gifts. All sorts of things from apple sauce to pear butter to pickled stuff. What do I do with the jars after I eat the goodies? Should I be bringing it back to them? Recycling? I'm pretty sure you can't reuse the lids (right?) but what about the jars? A: You can reuse both jars and lids, but you can't reuse the lids for actual canning. You can reuse them as just lids, though, of course - and you can reuse the jars as storage containers for all sorts of things, but they're especially good for salad dressings. And if you do can, you can reuse the jars for that - with new lids. Having said that, if the guys do a lot of canning, they probably would appreciate having the jars back, for future projects. And yes, you can recycle them. - J.Y. Q: My husband and I each replaced the usual quart of half-and-half in our fridge at the same time. It's from a local farm, so doesn't keep as well as the usual store-bought, which is one reason we like it. How can I use up that extra quart before it turns? A: I love using it for French toast. - B.K.

     Ratatouille can take many forms. 안전놀이터 There's fancy: eggplant, tomatoes and zucchini artfully cut and arranged in a dish before baking - the kind of thing you don't mind getting the china down for. And there's simple: a potentially sloppy mix of long-stewed vegetables, liable to collapse in an oily heap on your everyday plates before being devoured. The same can be said for ratatouille baked in a crust. It can be an elegant tart, a dainty quiche or, as in this case, a rustic pie that's homely, but impossible to resist. Its golden crust shatters messily when you cut it. The custard filling could leak, escaping the pastry. The cheese may brown; the tomatoes on top may shrivel. None of that matters when you taste it, each buttery, creamy, vegetable-filled bite flavoured with herbs and olives, and covered in cheese. This recipe is very loosely based on a Southern tomato pie. There's a parbaked pie crust anchoring the vegetables, and a custard imbued with mayonnaise and cheese to bind them. But that's where the similarities end. Here, I skipped the raw tomatoes, substituting a mix of summer vegetables cooked in plenty of olive oil until velvety soft. I particularly like to roast them so they caramelise and release much of their moisture, which keeps the pastry from turning soggy. If you have leftover ratatouille or any kind of cooked vegetables - roasted, grilled, sautéed - in your fridge, you could use those instead. You'll need about three to four cups of cooked vegetables, enough to fill the crust by two-thirds.   If you are using your own cooked vegetables instead of roasting them as in the recipe, be sure to stir in plenty of herbs: basil, rosemary and thyme. These add a lot in terms of complexity, and keep the olives from taking over. 카지노사이트주소 Now, about the mayonnaise. While it may seem like an odd match with ratatouille, it has an inherent tanginess that works well with the richness of the vegetables. I did try baking a version using crème fraîche to make it a little more French-seeming. But, to me, the result was insipid. Purists can make their own mayonnaise if anyone objects to using the stuff from the jar. No matter how else you tweak it, make sure to bake the pie on the day of serving. This hot mess is its best, stunning self when it's just that: just baked, a little warm from the oven and delightfully gooey.

    Thousands of revellers hurled around 145 tonnes of tomatoes at each other on Wednesday (August 29) during the annual "Tomatina" festival in the Spanish town of Bunol, 38 kilometers west of Valencia. A fire cracker signal marked the start of La Tomatina at 11am (0900 GMT) and during the next hour, six trucks loaded with tomatoes drove through Bunol's main street providing red ammunition for the revelers to enjoy themselves. 온라인바카라 The food fight originates from a spontaneous bust-up amongst villagers in 1945. It was banned for a time during the 1950s at the height of General Francisco Franco's dictatorship, but has gained popularity since it was reinstated, drawing a huge international crowd. At its peak, the Tomatina attracted approximately 45,000 people, but it has now become a ticketed event with only 22,000 places, 5,000 of which go to local residents.

    A consortium led by Hillhouse Capital Group is offering US$17.6 billion (S$24 billion) or US$46 per share for Yum China, a purveyor of fried chicken and pizza. 인터넷바카라 The offer is nearly 24 per cent higher than its closing price on Tuesday (Aug 28). But, the company has reportedly rejected the buyout deal, which did not offer detailed terms. Sources told Reuters that Yum China's board decided the offer provided no extra value. Mr Justin Urquhart Stewart, co-founder of Seven Investment Management, said: "In China, they maintain in fact a monopoly on those brands. Therefore, they are a cash cow... Management would see this as a rather opportunist bid to come in to try and buy assets, albeit at a premium to current price, still at a discounted price to where they were a few months back." Yum China is the biggest fast-food chain in China, and holds exclusive licensing rights for KFC, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell. 인터넷카지노   It currently operates 8,100 restaurants across the country and was the first major Western fast-food company to enter China. Its latest move quashes what would have been one of Asia's biggest deals this year. Mr Stewart added: "So what this will do in fact is actually probably just give further support to say the business like this has got a greater premium than currently being offered." Yum China declined to comment, but says it has the potential to grow to over 20,0000 stores in the long term.

Management would see this as a rather opportunist bid to come in to try and buy assets, albeit at a premium to current price, still at a discounted price to where they were a few months back." Yum China is the biggest fast-food chain in China, and holds exclusive licensing rights for KFC, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell. 인터넷카지노   It currently operates 8,100 restaurants across the country and was the first major Western fast-food company to enter China. Its latest move quashes what would have been one of Asia's biggest deals this year. Mr Stewart added: "So what this will do in fact is actually probably just give further support to say the business like this has got a greater premium than currently being offered." Yum China declined to comment, but says it has the potential to grow to over 20,0000 stores in the long term.

    With the recent announcement of the NFL deal with Yahoo to stream a game online, it should be time to take a look at the things to watch for during the livestream. This is a massive opportunity for both the NFL and Yahoo, as both groups have large audiences and large reaches. 바카라사이트 International Viewing: With the game being broadcast via Yahoo for most markets, this is a test to see the global reach that the NFL has. For many years, an expansion team has been talked about in overseas locations for the NFL, but this is a chance to see what that interest may be like. For Yahoo, this is a chance to further grow their international platform as a whole. Yahoo will be able to broadcast this game in massive markets, such as the UK, China and other large countries that may not have regular viewing access to NFL games. Prediction: Welcome to the USA, where we are extremely curious about new things. Ratings may be high at the beginning, because we want to see things we are not used to. Ratings in the on home turf should expect to go down throughout the game. However, expect international ratings to be at a very high number, with football becoming a growing sports in expanding markets. 인터넷카지노 Yahoo Integration: Yahoo has many different properties that it can use to further enhance the experience for fans. For example, Yahoo Screen is the main video part of the website that will be used by many fans to see the actual game. Yahoo-owned Tumblr is a growing social product, with tens of millions of posts being created by people all around the world everyday. Can Yahoo use Tumblr in order to make the game more social? Yahoo also has created a very successful Fantasy Sports application used by millions. There is a massive amount of potential to use it's fantasy sports platform directly with the game. Other properties and platforms that are interesting in partnership with the game are Yahoo Search, Flickr and it's main news website. Prediction: This one should be fun. Yahoo is going to be creating a massive platform FOR ONE GAME OF THE BILLS VS. JAGS. Expect GIFs every two seconds on Tumblr, followed by fantasy exclusives provided by the top Yahoo NFL writers. Quality: Let's be honest. The first livestream NFL game via Yahoo could go up in flames. It could be amazing, but how do we know the quality is going to be perfect, something we are pretty used to with CBS, NBC and Fox Sports. Just a thought... 인터넷바카라 Prediction: It is not going to be perfect, but I do not think it is going to be awful. Yahoo Screen is a platform with high potential, and with CBS producing the game, this has the potential to be good. But not perfect...let's remember that. Game Experience: For your average TV user, the game may be DVR'd (or something similar) to either skip commercials or watch the entirety of the game of if the viewer is a couple minutes late. What does Yahoo provide us with this time around? Will we have the chance to record the game, and start it from the beginning a few minutes late? In addition, will Yahoo allow us to watch the game after it is done, allowing people to maybe see a game later in the day? Will we have a chance to rewind the game if somebody makes an amazing catch (or Rex Ryan does something weird, since that is very high in probability). Prediction: The game will be allowed to be rewinded (a certain amount of time), but not recorded. Yahoo will allow Yahoo-registered users to watch the game after it ends via Yahoo Screen. The game will be lowell watched after it ends, because people realize they have work, school...or the rest of their days.

    My girlfriend was pretty excited that her new apartment had FiOS equipment pre-installed and has had the service for about a month. I knew that Verizon did some fairly pretty invasive stuff in terms of watching your activity while on their network, but she got a message threatening to suspend her internet if she continued to visit this website that hosts (to view but not download) videos, including copy-written content. Is there anyway around that stuff? 바카라사이트주소 Can you opt out like with some Comcast packages? Is using a VPN while she's online enough? I don't think anyone here is that into having company's monitor your browsing habits (although they all do to some extent) but I've never had AT&T or Comcast send me a notice for visiting RandomAnimeSiteC, let alone beam a threat directly into a blank tab when I open my computer. If there are any FiOS customers out there with other warnings about things you shouldn't try to do on Verizon's network, those comments would also be welcomed!

    I realize the new rules aren't really rules yet; more than anything they're scaffolding for future rules. But regardless, in light of Adi Robertson's article, "New Reddit rules will crack down on some hate communities, leave others standing," I'm wondering what folks think of the new rules that Steve Huffman announced. 온라인카지노 I say beef. This seems to strike as good of a balance as Reddit was ever going to be able to strike. On the one hand, they want to retain their moniker of being the "bastion of free speech." Despite the fact that Huffman denies that it is a full fledged, unregulated community, it's clear that part of the allure of the site is the fact that people can discuss whatever they want in almost any way they want. But at the same time, there must be limits. On the other side of the scales is the fact that Reddit wants to make money. They aren't just a company in someone's garage. They have a huge audience with a huge number of page views. They have to find a way to monetize those eyeballs, and advertising is the way to do it. If Donald Trump has taught us anything, it's that advertisers don't want to be associated with inflammatory or offensive things. 온라인바카라 Reddit's reputation isn't just that it is a place with a lot of eyes, and that it often has a hand in breaking news stories, but also that it is a place where truly heinous, offensive, and sometimes threatening behavior occurs. Say what you want about Trump, but he's a good business man and has his hands in a lot of profitable businesses. Even so advertisers pulled their money from one of this profitable ventures, the Miss America Pagent. That shows that it doesn't take much for them to back away. By secluding the "content that violates a common sense of decency" from random people that find their way to Reddit while browsing the web, but still allowing members to continue to contribute to that content, Reddit has found a pretty good way of having its cake and eating it too. 카지노사이트주소 As an aside, if the "content that violates a common sense of decency" gets enough eyes, I'm guessing Reddit will open it up to advertisers and be more than happy to generate revenue from it. The organizations advertising in those sections will just be less-mainstream businesses that might, themselves, seem to violate a common sense of decency.

    I tweeted this morning asking whether tweeting with proper casing (and grammar, too — why not) is cool or lame. I wanted to bring the conversation to the forums and expand it a bit: do you think society should be 100% proper while posting on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc? I think brands should definitely maintain that standard, but what about humans? 인터넷바카라 When I first joined Twitter and for the first year or two, I was *very* careful to always post with 100% correct grammar and spelling and punctuation. Nowadays, the only time I really care is if I'm mobile, because you're forced to use capital letters at the beginning of sentences.

    Los Angeles prosecutors said on Tuesday (Sept 4) that they did not plan to file sexual assault charges in three separate cases targeting actors Kevin Spacey, Steven Seagal and Anthony Anderson. 온라인바카라 The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office told AFP that the cases involving Spacey and Seagal were not being pursued because the statute of limitations had run out, while the case against Anderson was being dropped because the alleged victim had declined to be interviewed by police. Spacey, who lost his role in the hit series House Of Cards following sexual misconduct charges against him in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, had been accused of sexually assaulting an unidentified acquaintance in 1992. "The allegation is outside the statute of limitations, therefore, an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the evidence is not warranted and prosecution is declined," the prosecutor's office said. The case for the action-movie star Seagal, who was accused of assaulting an 18-year-old acquaintance in 1993, was also abandoned on the same grounds. 바카라사이트주소 Black-ish star Anderson was accused of sexually assaulting a woman earlier this spring, but the alleged victim "has declined to be interviewed by the investigating officer", the prosecutor's office said.   The woman had told police that the assault took place at an event the actor had hosted. He has denied the claim. Spacey and Seagal are facing potential charges in other cases currently under investigation. Spacey is also under investigation for sexual misconduct in London. Seagal has denied the accusations against him. Spacey's publicist in November said the two-time Oscar winner, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than a dozen men and boys, was "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment".

     Hollywood actor Jeff Goldblum has faced dinosaurs and aliens in his movie franchises, but on Wednesday (Sept 5) he showed off a very different skill - playing jazz music. The Jurassic Park and Independence Day actor surprised commuters at London's St Pancras International train station by performing music from his forthcoming jazz album on a public piano. 온라인바카라 Crowds gathered around the 65-year-old, who recorded The Capitol Studios Sessions with his band The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, and they applauded his solo performance. The album is set to be released in November.

    Most fruit tarts flaunt their bright fillings. Whether their fruit is added to pastry before or after baking, they are vivid confections - conspicuously appealing and hard to resist. 안전놀이터 This plum tart is a dessert of a shyer order, less ostentatious than its flashy friends. On the surface, it's subtle, looking like a giant shortbread cookie. But once it's cut, the tart reveals a magenta stripe of simmered plums in each slice - fragrant with cinnamon and glistening with honey. The recipe is based on a gâteau Breton, a traditional flat cake from Brittany consisting of an egg yolk-enriched, butter-based dough that sometimes sandwiches jam or dried fruit purée. Older recipes often call for using all- or part-buckwheat flour, once the region's principal grain (and used in its famous crepes). Now, you are more likely to see gâteaux Breton made with regular wheat flour, which, in combination with the butter, gives it a particularly rich, crumbly texture. I have made the recipe with puréed dried apricots or prunes in the centre, homemade or spooned from jars of lekvar (also known as prune or apricot butter). But when fresh plums are plentiful, it makes sense to use those instead. And, if you find red or purple ones, they will make for an extremely pretty slice. You will need to cook the plums down, but that takes only about 15 minutes. While they simmer, you can add aromatics to the pot. I threw in a cinnamon stick and a rosemary sprig, along with some honey. But feel free to play around with other herbs and spices. A few slices of ginger root and some lemon thyme could also be nice. 바카라사이트   You could also skip the compote and substitute jam in a layer as thick or thin as you like. A thin one will be elegant and restrained; a thick spread, sweeter and more extravagantly messy. Just be sure to choose a jam with good acidity, so that it is tangy next to the buttery dough. Raspberry and orange marmalade fare better than strawberry and peach, but the possibilities for variation are many. Or stick with the plum compote, and consider serving this as dessert for your Rosh Hashana dinner. Rich and honeyed, it is a sweetly appropriate treat to usher in the New Year. Yield: 12 servings Time: 1 ½ hours Ingredients1 cup plus 1 to 3 Tbs granulated sugar2⅓ cups all-purpose flour¾ tsp ground cinnamon¼ tsp fine sea salt225 g unsalted butter (2 sticks), diced, plus more for greasing pan1 large egg5 large egg yolks4 large plums, halved, pitted, and sliced 6cm thick (about 2¼ cups)2 Tbs full-flavoured honey such as wildflower1 cinnamon stick1 small sprig rosemary (optional) Method 인터넷카지노1. In a food processor, process 1 cup sugar until powdery and fine, about 1 minute. Add flour, cinnamon and salt; pulse to combine. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add egg and 4 egg yolks, and pulse until mixture comes together. Divide dough in half, form into disks, and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill at least 2 hours or until firm. 2. In a small saucepan, combine plums, 1 to 3 Tbs sugar (this depends on how sweet your plums are), cinnamon, honey and rosemary sprig, if using. Simmer until jammy and thick, 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer plum mixture to a bowl to cool, and remove cinnamon stick and rosemary sprig. Taste and stir in more sugar if mixture seems very tart. 3. Heat oven to 170 deg C. Grease an 20-cm springform pan and place it on a rimmed baking sheet to catch any butter leaks. 4. Between two sheets of parchment paper or plastic wrap, roll one of the dough halves into an 20cm circle. Transfer dough to prepared cake pan, pressing into edges. Spoon plum compote on top of dough, leaving 2cm border around edge. 5. Roll second piece of dough into an 20cm circle, transfer to pan, press around outside edge to stick the pieces together and seal in fruit. 6. In a small bowl, combine remaining egg yolk with 1 tsp water and beat lightly. Brush over top of cake, then use a fork to score a crisscross pattern into the dough. Bake until golden brown, 1 hour (cover with foil if cake is browning too quickly). Cool in pan for 15 minutes, then run a butter knife around the inside edge of the pan and unmold from ring. Cool completely and serve.

     A stirring story of revenge and friendship involving an Irish convict woman and an Aboriginal tracker in colonial Tasmania was hailed the favourite on Thursday (Sept 6) to win the Golden Lion at the Venice film festival. 바카라사이트 The Nightingale by Australian Jennifer Kent - the only film directed by a woman out of a total 21 vying for the top prize - had critics reaching for comparisons with Jane Campion's 1993 masterpiece The Piano. But the first screening of Kent's haunting evocation of the brutality of the former penal colony, whose original inhabitants were all but wiped out in a genocide, was marred by racist and sexist abuse hurled at its makers. After loud cheers had greeted the demise of a British officer near the end of the film who had murdered the heroine's husband and baby, a handful of Italians in the audience clapped the death of the Aboriginal man who had helped her. Then, as Kent's name came up in the credits, one shouted: "Shame on you, whore! Your film sucks." A young Italian director later admitted he was the culprit and apologised for the "deplorable insult", saying it was "not meant to be misogynist". The dearth of women in the official line-up has seen Venice condemned for its "toxic masculinity" and the organisers forced into an embarrassing U-turn on gender equality. 카지노사이트 But the Brisbane-born actor-turned-director refused to be provoked, telling reporters her film proved the "absolute importance of reacting with compassion and love to ignorance. "We see other options played out and they gave no succour or relief," said Kent, who turned down the Hollywood blockbuster Wonder Woman to make her own historical epic. "Love, compassion and kindness are our lifeline and if we don't utilise them we will all go down the plughole," she added. The film, which is shot in English, Irish Gaelic and the Tasmanian Aboriginal Palawa Kani language, portrays the extreme violence and racism of the island in the 1820s when it was known as Van Diemen's Land. Variety called it "a magnificent mass of movie... an elemental revenge tale (of) near-mythic grandeur". But critic Jessica Kiang of The Playlist website said that with judicious cuts to "pare it back to its thrilling and beautiful essentials, The Nightingale will really sing." Kent said she it was "incredibly important" that audiences be shocked by the brutality she depicts. 카지노사이트주소 "I hope horror and beauty exist side-by-side. But we are so numbed and anaesthetised to cinema violence - we can watch a movie where 50 people die and feel nothing. "This is objectionable and disagreeable to me. I wanted to show the human cost," she told AFP. Rising Irish-Italian star Aisling Franciosi, of The Fall fame, said she never realised quite how violent the penal colony was, "particularly towards women, who were outnumbered eight to one. "They were sent there for very petty crimes to populate the island. It made me furious to see how cruel, brutal and systematic it was." Kent said the story of genocide and enslavement "needs to be told", hanging her plot on the touching and unlikely friendship between an enslaved convict played by Franciosi and a tracker by Aboriginal actor Baykali Ganambarr. "When I first went to Tasmania I was struck by the residual sadness in the land," she told AFP. "I visited the penal colonies and felt the ghosts of many heartbroken souls that somehow stayed in the place and I always wanted to tell the story." Ganambarr said there was no "sugar coating... This is what happened to my people and I am really proud to represent them." Kent, who wrote the script, said being the sole woman director in competition in Venice "brings me no joy. I wish I had my sister filmmakers here. Cinema's job is to reflect the world and if we only reflect 50 per cent, it's not doing that." The last time a woman took Venice's top prize was 43 years ago when German director Margarethe von Trotta won with Marianne And Juliane.

  •  A stirring story of revenge and friendship involving an Irish convict woman and an Aboriginal tracker in colonial Tasmania was hailed the favourite on Thursday (Sept 6) to win the Golden Lion at the Venice film festival. 바카라사이트 The Nightingale by Australian Jennifer Kent - the only film directed by a woman out of a total 21 vying for the top prize - had critics reaching for comparisons with Jane Campion's 1993 masterpiece The Piano. But the first screening of Kent's haunting evocation of the brutality of the former penal colony, whose original inhabitants were all but wiped out in a genocide, was marred by racist and sexist abuse hurled at its makers. After loud cheers had greeted the demise of a British officer near the end of the film who had murdered the heroine's husband and baby, a handful of Italians in the audience clapped the death of the Aboriginal man who had helped her. Then, as Kent's name came up in the credits, one shouted: "Shame on you, whore! Your film sucks." A young Italian director later admitted he was the culprit and apologised for the "deplorable insult", saying it was "not meant to be misogynist". The dearth of women in the official line-up has seen Venice condemned for its "toxic masculinity" and the organisers forced into an embarrassing U-turn on gender equality. 카지노사이트 But the Brisbane-born actor-turned-director refused to be provoked, telling reporters her film proved the "absolute importance of reacting with compassion and love to ignorance. "We see other options played out and they gave no succour or relief," said Kent, who turned down the Hollywood blockbuster Wonder Woman to make her own historical epic. "Love, compassion and kindness are our lifeline and if we don't utilise them we will all go down the plughole," she added. The film, which is shot in English, Irish Gaelic and the Tasmanian Aboriginal Palawa Kani language, portrays the extreme violence and racism of the island in the 1820s when it was known as Van Diemen's Land. Variety called it "a magnificent mass of movie... an elemental revenge tale (of) near-mythic grandeur". But critic Jessica Kiang of The Playlist website said that with judicious cuts to "pare it back to its thrilling and beautiful essentials, The Nightingale will really sing." Kent said she it was "incredibly important" that audiences be shocked by the brutality she depicts. 카지노사이트주소 "I hope horror and beauty exist side-by-side. But we are so numbed and anaesthetised to cinema violence - we can watch a movie where 50 people die and feel nothing. "This is objectionable and disagreeable to me. I wanted to show the human cost," she told AFP. Rising Irish-Italian star Aisling Franciosi, of The Fall fame, said she never realised quite how violent the penal colony was, "particularly towards women, who were outnumbered eight to one. "They were sent there for very petty crimes to populate the island. It made me furious to see how cruel, brutal and systematic it was." Kent said the story of genocide and enslavement "needs to be told", hanging her plot on the touching and unlikely friendship between an enslaved convict played by Franciosi and a tracker by Aboriginal actor Baykali Ganambarr. "When I first went to Tasmania I was struck by the residual sadness in the land," she told AFP. "I visited the penal colonies and felt the ghosts of many heartbroken souls that somehow stayed in the place and I always wanted to tell the story." Ganambarr said there was no "sugar coating... This is what happened to my people and I am really proud to represent them." Kent, who wrote the script, said being the sole woman director in competition in Venice "brings me no joy. I wish I had my sister filmmakers here. Cinema's job is to reflect the world and if we only reflect 50 per cent, it's not doing that." The last time a woman took Venice's top prize was 43 years ago when German director Margarethe von Trotta won with Marianne And Juliane.

    Burt Reynolds, whose good looks and charm made him one of Hollywood’s most popular actors as he starred in films such as Deliverance, The Longest Yard and Smokey And The Bandit in the 1970s and 1980s, has died at age 82, a spokesman for his Los Angeles agent said on Thursday (Sept 6). 바카라사이트 Reynolds died on Thursday morning at the Jupiter Medical Centre in Florida, The Hollywood Reporter said, citing Reynolds’manager, Erik Kritzer. At the peak of his career, Reynolds was one of the most bankable actors in the film industry, reeling off a series of box office smashes until a career downturn in the mid-1980s. He rebounded in 1997 with a nomination for a best supporting actor Academy Award for Boogie Nights and won an Emmy Award for his role in the 1990-1994 TV series Evening Shade. With his trademark moustache, rugged looks and macho aura, he was a leading male sex symbol of the 1970s. He appeared naked - reclining on a bearskin rug with his arm strategically positioned for the sake of modesty - in a centrefold in the women's magazine Cosmopolitan in 1972. 온라인카지노 Reynolds' personal life sometimes overshadowed his movies, with marriages that ended in divorce to actresses Loni Anderson and Judy Carne and romances with others, including Sally Field and Dinah Shore. Reynolds also generated attention for financial woes and his struggles with prescription pain medication. Reynolds cited director John Boorman's Oscar-nominated 1972 Deliverance as his best film and said he regretted that the hoopla from his Cosmopolitan appearance detracted from the movie that made him a star. He played tough-guy Lewis Medlock - opposite Jon Voight, Ned Beatty and Ronny Cox - in the chilling tale of a canoe trip gone bad in rural Georgia. He starred in dozens of films, also including White Lightning (1973), WW And The Dixie Dancekings (1975),Hustle (1975), Nickelodeon (1976) and Semi-Tough (1977). He was the top money-making star at the box office in an annual poll of movie exhibitors 1978 through 1982. Many of his films were set in the South. He often played a lovable rascal who outwits local authorities as in director Hal Needham's 1977 crowd-pleasing action comedy Smokey And The Bandit, co-starring his girlfriend Field and Jackie Gleason, and its two sequels.

He appeared in a supporting role 2005's remake with Adam Sandler. Reynolds also directed several movies in which he starred, including Gator (1976), The End (1978), Sharky's Machine(1981) and Stick (1985). While some of his performances were critically praised, others were ridiculed, particularly in the bloated action comedy Cannonball Run II, a sequel to his financial success Rhe Cannonball Run (1981). He also starred in the notorious 1975 musical flop At Long Last Love, a film so atrocious that director Peter Bogdanovich publicly apologised for making it. Reynolds turned down notable roles, including Han Solo in Star Wars, which went to Harrison Ford; the title role in a James Bond film; and the astronaut in Terms Of Endearment that Jack Nicholson turned into an Oscar-winning performance.

    A 1943 propaganda film featuring a Japanese "Robin Hood" in Malaya inspired the new Teater Ekamatra production opening this week. 안전놀이터 Written by Alfian Sa'at and directed by Teater Ekamatra's artistic director Mohd Fared Jainal, Tiger Of Malaya features a cast from Singapore and Japan, and runs at the Drama Centre Black Box from Sept 12 till Sept 23. The term "Tiger Of Malaya" is often associated with Japanese general Tomoyuki Yamashita, who captured Malaya and Singapore during World War II. However, the old film and this week's play are based on the life story of Tani Yutaka, a Japanese bandit who lived in Malaya. He is portrayed as a heroic figure, leading his band against British imperial forces and "evil" Chinese capitalists. The play re-enacts scenes from the film - with "interruptions, interventions and subversions" according to Alfian. Malay actors play parts that were originally played by a Japanese cast. The cast includes Farez Najid, Siti Khalijah Zainal and Rei Poh from Singapore, and Rei Kitagawa and Yuya Tanaka from Japan. Dialogue is in Malay, English, Japanese and Mandarin - Japanese-speaking researcher Shawn Chua is the dramaturg. Actor Farez, 30, watched the Tiger Of Malaya film even before being cast for the production. "It was with a bunch of boys who were interested in war and it was hilarious," he says. 바카라사이트 For him and many of the other performers in their 30s, World War II is too far away to affect the present day. "We consume Japanese media a lot, the culture," he points out. "The war is generations away." Japanese actor Tanaka, 31, feels equally distant from the war but says: "I'm curious how people will respond to the play." Alfian, who has written several plays for Teater Ekamatra including political satire GRC (2015), is fascinated by the "mythmaking" aspect of Tiger Of Malaya, where a bandit "was pitched as a symbol of the Japanese providing anti-colonial and nationalist leadership in Asia". "I've been very interested in exploring historiography - or how history is written - through theatre, and I felt that the movie provided this very rich material," he says. For the director, Fared, the play brought up similar questions. "How can we relate back to an event that happened way before this current time? How true is history being recorded?" he asks. 인터넷카지노 Work began on Tiger Of Malaya well before it was announced that Singapore would commemorate its bicentennial in 2019 - 200 years after Stamford Raffles landed. Fared says: "We were not particularly aligning it to the whole bicentennial celebrations. But somehow with this work, it questions our very own existence in this part of the world through the lens of history."

    An article in an online magazine under famed American lifestyle guru and cookbook author Martha Stewart's brand prompted taunts from netizens when it mistook durian for jackfruit. 인터넷바카라 The article, titled Here's Exactly How To Use Jackfruit, published on Stewart's eponymous site under a section named Strive, which purports to be about "the art and science of taking care", mistakenly featured a picture of durians. A line about jackfruit which appeared right before the picture of the durians said:"This tropical fruit, often grown in India and southeast Asia, has a texture that can be an excellent substitute for meat." While unripe jackfruit has become popular in recent years as a meat substitute because its fruit can be easily shredded, similar to pulled pork, durian's texture is very different from meat and is not known to be used as a substitute. 카지노사이트 Netizens spotted the error and descended upon the 77-year-old, who now has a lifestyle empire under her name. Reactions ranged from ridiculing Stewart to asking for more diverse writers on her team, to avoid such mistakes. Freelance writer Erin Chew who uses the name ThisAsianWomanSays on Twitter tagged Stewart's official Twitter and questioned how she could make the mistake and why no one on Stewart's team bothered to do an image search of jackfruit. She added: "Can these celebrity #white folks get our SE Asian fruits correct?"

    United States rapper Nicki Minaj has refuted suggestions that she insulted fellow rapper Cardi B's daughter. Cardi B implied earlier, without naming anyone, that comments about her daughter had led her to get into a scuffle with Minaj last Friday night. 바카라사이트주소 The altercation, which took place at a New York Fashion Week party, was caught on tape. Magazine Vanity Fair reported on Monday (Sept 10) that Minaj had made her latest comments about the issue during an interview with Beats 1's Queen Radio on Apple Music. Minaj said that the pair's skirmish last week had been "something so mortifying and so humiliating to go through in front of a bunch (of) upper-echelon people who have their life together". "The way they passed by, looking at this disgusting commotion - I was mortified," she said. "I was in a Gaultier gown off the motherf****** runway, and I could not believe how humiliat(ing) it all felt, (how) we made ourselves look." The incident happened at a bash hosted by fashion magazine Harper's Bazaar. Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, lunged towards Minaj, 35, but was stopped and held back by security. 안전놀이터 The 25-year-old rapper was heard yelling loudly and asking Minaj to come to her and was seen throwing a shoe at Minaj. In an expletive-laden note on Instagram shortly after the incident, Cardi B wrote that the reason for her outburst was because of comments made about her ability to be a good mother to her daughter. She did not name who made those comments. Cardi B gave birth to her first child, a baby girl, in July. But Minaj said in her radio interview, referring to herself in third person: "I just want people to know that Onika Tanya Maraj (Minaj's real name) has never, will never...speak ill on anyone's child. I am not a clown. That's clown s***. "The world gave you a blessing, of a beautiful bundle of joy, and the only thing on your mind after you gave birth was to attack people." 바카라사이트 Minaj, who had not made any comments about the altercation immediately after it took place, said that she had not felt the need to defend herself that night. However, she suggested that Cardi B posted about the incident because she felt embarrassed. Minaj added that Cardi B "built her career off sympathy and payola". Payola refers to the frowned-upon practice in the music industry of paying a DJ to promote one's music. The pair have had a complicated relationship following the success of Cardi B's rap track Bodak Yellow, released in 2017. Comparisons were often made between the two female rappers and rumours were rife that Minaj took digs at Cardi B through song lyrics. Referring to Cardi B during her radio interview, Minaj said: "Do you know what it is to sit in your room for hours and days at a time writing raps? You came into my f****** culture! I never had a DJ to play my f****** songs. "This is about, get this woman some f****** help. This woman is at the best stage of her career and she's throwing bottles? Who the f*** is gonna give her an intervention?"

    LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Los Angeles prosecutors said on Tuesday (Sept 11) they would not charge Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter over a 2003 sexual assault accusation because it fell outside the California statute of limitations. 인터넷카지노 The Los Angeles District Attorney's office said it had reviewed the accusation by a woman who was 18 years old at the time, but said the statute of limitations had expired in 2013. "An analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the evidence is not warranted, and the matter is declined," prosecutors said in a charge evaluation worksheet released to the media. They gave no details of the case, but Carter last year denied an allegation that he raped a teen pop singer 15 years ago. An attorney for Carter, whose band is currently playing a long-term engagement in Las Vegas, said in a statement on Tuesday that the singer was "happy to put the matter behind him." 인터넷바카라 "Nick has denied these allegations ever since he first learned of them last year," attorney Michael Holtz said in the statement. The Backstreet Boys were one of the biggest boy bands of the late 1990s and early 2000s, with hits like Quit Playing Games With My Heart. Accusations of sexual misconduct, inspired by the #MeToo social media movement, have forced multiple celebrities, politicians and businessmen to step down or be fired in the past year.
