Crystal And Porcelain Masterpieces By Makers You've Probably Never Heard Of

Capodimonte porcelain has actually been around for quite a long time. The 1740's to be exact. It started out in Naples and was under explicit orders from the King of Italy to produce porcelain superior to the famous Meissen factory in Germany. It did for a while but then the factory was moved to Spain; it burned down; and later it was restarted in Italy only to be destroyed again during the French invasion of 1798. 

In the period of its glory as a royal business it turned out porcelains of such gorgeous quality that they were used only by Royal families because of the high cost of production. After it was looted and destroyed during the French invasion, it was again rebuilt. But during the French interregnum in Italy its production was halted and porcelain production was sold to a group of local businessmen. It's fate is as dull as the years of its existence, apart from saying it produced magnificent porcelain. It more or less disappeared from view for a while.

Fortunately, it was resuscitated by some local businessmen who wanted to keep the Capodimonte tradition alive. A few factories in Italy still create these masterpieces of another day as well as our own time - a variety of home decor items ranging from stunning candlestick holders to breathtaking chandeliers with lots of flowers, birds, and animals in between.

Today, Capodimonte is quite simply the finest and most perfect grade of Italian artistic pottery, one that is cherished for its craftsmanship and attention to detail. And that goes for its subsidiaries discussed in the following paragraphs. 

The new outfit, along with V. Sabadin and A. Santini, under the Capodimonte imprimatur is Cevik Glass and Porcelain. The products of each of these companies are all registered and stamped to protect the public against fraud. A buyer always knows that he or she is purchasing an authentic piece.

Cevik was established in Vicenza, Italy by Scaggiari Maurizio in 1971. The Cevik Company in Italy produces hand-crafted and hand-blown glass and crystal. Crystal, of course, is the elite of all glass. It has the uniqueness of letting the light show all of its glorious brilliance. Each individual piece of Cevik crystal is then fully integrated with exquisite porcelain to produce an item of sheer artistic beauty. These days the company concentrates on crystal vases. These are among the finest glass and porcelain vases available anywhere. So fine in fact that you will be hard pressed to find them for sale in the United States or in Europe. When you acquire a Cevik piece as a gift or to occupy a special place in your own home, You are getting an item of matchless beauty.

If your preference is for figurines, look closely at the A. Santini collection. Amilcare Santini founded the company near Florence in 1910 after a long apprenticeship to a famous sculptor of his day. Working at first in clay which Santini used to mold statues of great beauty, he attended the university in Florence where he was instrumental in developing the process of combining marble, alabaster, and resin. This material was poured into molds made by Santini and allowed to harden to room temperature; then the figure was taken out and completely finished using the very old techniques and styles known to the great Italian masters of marble. 

Amilcare Santini died in 1975 and the company has since been run in the Santini tradition by succeeding generations of the Santini family. The great Amilcare Santini tradition of producing exquisite objets d'art continues through four renowned sculptors who are active in the company. Each pursues a different specialty: classical and religious figurines, handpainted figurines and animals, Art Deco and nude figures, and creches and holy images. In addition they reproduce original pieces by Amilcare Santini. Altogether they continue to be known for quality, beauty, and craftsmanship under the rubric of A. Santini.

Santini sculptures represent some of the most prestigious museum lines of quality in the world.

Except that he was a great sculptor, little else of note can be said of Vittorio Sabadin. Exquisite, delightful, whimsical, humorous - all of these are words that come to mind when you talk about his pieces. His ladies, dancers, clowns, and animals speak to the multifarious nature of his creative mind. It's easy to understand why people simply fall in love with his little pieces. They bring out the humanity in us all.


This team will definitely get draw after draw because the batsmen won't let them lose and the bowlers won't let them win. So if we want to saw a draw game after 5 days, you can pick this team. However, selecting Zaheer Khan ahead of Prasanna will make the team more competitive. With Zaheer comes the variety of left arm fast bowler along with right arm quickies of Kapil and Srinath.

PELVIC THRUST The science behind how India’s R Ashwin became the world’s best Test cricket bowler Written by Liam Sanders, PhD Researcher, Loughborough University December 20, 2016 Quartz india Epic talent. (Reuters/Danish Siddiqui) Share Written by Liam Sanders, PhD Researcher, Loughborough University December 20, 2016 Quartz india With a victory over England in the fourth Test match by an innings and 36 runs, India’s cricket team has secured its fifth consecutive Test series win and have now gone over four years without losing a test match on home soil—a run of 18 matches. Throughout this period we witnessed the meteoric rise of Ravichandran Ashwin, India’s prize Test match finger spin bowler. Ashwin, now the no.1 ranked bowler in world cricket has amassed 15 five-wicket hauls in Tests, the highest for any bowler in two successive calendar years. In September, he became the second-fastest bowler to claim 200 Test wickets in his career. Statistics aside, success on the world stage is not a matter of chance, quite the contrary. Ashwin’s journey is a culmination of his technical refinement, innovation, and the teammates who bowl alongside him. Refining the technique While there are many facets that contribute to a successful spin bowler, imparting a high number of revolutions on the ball is seen as critical and the main cause for both the ball’s “drift” in the air and deviation off the pitch. Coupled with the ability to pitch the delivery in advantageous areas, elite finger spin bowlers such as Ashwin play an integral role in the success of teams competing in the international game. A forthcoming study on the biomechanics of elite finger spin bowling, led by myself and my colleague, Mark King, at Loughborough University in conjunction with the England and Wales Cricket Board, profiled 30 elite male finger spin bowlers over a four-year period (including the English spinners Graeme Swann, Monty Panesar and James Tredwell). Our team of researchers explored the technical factors within a bowling action that influence the rate at which a ball spins. Highly advanced motions of the pelvis are paramount to producing high spin rates to the ball. The team observed very strong positive relationships between the orientation of the bowler’s pelvis and the rate at which the ball spins during flight, particularly at the instance of front foot contact and ball release. These findings created a compelling argument that highly advanced motions of the pelvis are paramount to producing high spin rates to the ball and therefore that spin bowling should not be solely thought of as an upper arm skill. The movement during the ball’s flight is due to its “lift” or Magnus force, which affects the way a ball reacts during motion. This movement occurs because on the side of the ball which is advancing due to the spin motion the air flow is slowed down, creating a high-pressure region. On the other, receding side, it creates a low-pressure region. The difference in pressure causes a “lateral” force perpendicular to the ground and a lateral movement of the ball during flight. This is known as drift. The force of the lift will vary in direction and magnitude and depends on the amount of spin and the axis along which the ball is spinning. In addition, cricket balls have a seam, and spinners commonly apply spin along the line of this seam to help their grip on the ball. This means the spin axis is commonly kept perpendicular to the direction of the seam, promoting a stable seam position and the possibility of the ball deviating off the seam the moment it hits the pitch. When the ball meets the pitch surface, particularly in India (due to drier pitches creating high friction between the ground and the ball), this commonly creates large lateral deviation and a heightened challenge to the opposing batsman. In 2016, Ashwin’s front foot is now directed toward the opposing batsman with an optimal pelvis orientation at ball release. (AP/Altaf Qadri)Coming back to Ashwin, since 2012 he has noticeably made a number of key technical changes to his bowling action to improve alignment and promote a transfer of momentum throughout his delivery stride. In 2016, he now bowls with a slightly open pelvis orientation when his front foot hits the ground. This differs to the strictly side-on, or at times closed-off pelvis orientation that he used when releasing the ball back in 2012. He now has the ability to rotate his pelvis effectively and efficiently, promoting the transfer of kinetic energy from the pelvis to the hand as he releases the ball, and so injecting greater spin onto the ball. Partnerships and pace Humility is a strong virtue in any individual. With this in mind, Ashwin’s rise to stardom has to be partly credited to his orthodox left-arm spin partner, Ravindra Jadeja. Between November 2015 and the end of the fourth Test against England in mid-December 2016, India’s star duo had accumulated the most wickets in Test cricket—an incredible 124. The pair is unrelentingly accurate, with Jadeja mounting great pressure, bowling 53 maidens (an over, or six consecutive deliveries where no run is scored) in the current series against England alone. The speed at which the ball is released also plays a significant role in the success of an elite spin bowler. When a new, competent batsman enters the crease, they use the idiosyncratic cues provided by the bowler, such as the release velocity, height, and angle of preceding deliveries. This forms a mental template of the ball’s trajectory—essentially an attempt to predict the trajectories of the deliveries to follow. Here, Ashwin’s subtle variation of the speed and the axis around which he spins the ball comes into play. He commonly delivers his stock ball with an initial release speed around 54mph. Variations of pace close to this speed may exploit a batsman’s mental template and take advantage of the batsman’s subtle “blindness” to length and speed. This can create a fatal weakness in judgement, particularly for any new batsman at the crease. The new batsman’s ability to tell what speed and trajectory the ball will arrive is now sub-optimal, meaning vital mistakes are made in deciding whether to come forward or back when playing the ball. This can result in a quick return to the dressing room. Innovation Ashwin can also be considered as one of the modern game’s great innovators through his use of a unique delivery known as the “carrom” or “sodukku ball,” meaning “snapping of fingers” in the Tamil language. When delivering the carrom ball, Ashwin spins the ball using half as many revolutions as he would with one of his regular deliveries. The ball is released out of the front of the hand as opposed to the side, using the middle digit to impart spin. As a result, it is very difficult for the opposing batsman to distinguish and therefore a dangerous tool of deception. With this magnitude of spin, the ball’s trajectory is much straighter and results in many wickets as the opposing batsman often plays down the wrong line of trajectory. As a result, Ashwin, who is one of the very few operators of this delivery in the world game, has one of the highest percentages of dismissals for leg before wicket in Test cricket to date. All this has combined to make Ravichandran Ashwin one of the most effective bowlers in today’s modern game. This article was originally published on The Conversation. Read the original article.

Double-hundreds followed in both the summers of 1949 and 1950 and in 1952 he was appointed the first professional England captain. The move paid off as England finally regained the Ashes the following year after 19 years of hurt, before retaining them 18 months later down under which was the crowning glory of his cricketing career. Hutton had six series in charge, winning five and drawing the other.

This is a good team except MS Dhoni who used to drop a Catch per Inning/Match while others deserve their place. They have 2 Fast bowlers and 3 Spinners and I m so happy that Vinoo Mankad was chosen unanimously. They have all type of Spin and then who is asking where are the Bowlers? Right Kapil, Kumble, Srinath, Erapalli Prasanna and Vinoo Mankad are good enough to bowl out any opposition while you have V Sehwag and Vijay Hazare as additional bowling option for Spin and Medium Fast while don't forget Sachin who's wicket taking ability that changes the match and in every famous win of India like the Kolkata, Adelaide and Multan (M Khan Bowled) is more then good enough. Don't keep cry for the Bowlers.

Sandeep Patil | India Cricket | Cricket Players and Officials ...

I think this is a very good list. Before I read the article I came up with a list of my own and apart from Vijay Hazare (I havent had the pleasure of seeing him bat) I had the same list in mind. I was struggling between Vishwanath, Vengsarkar and Ganguly. I think Vijay Hazare is a better choice. Also, I had a tough time picking between Chandrashekar and Prasanna but based on the description Prasanna is probably the right choice.

King of Swing, Wasim Akram most famous Pakistani cricketer. Akram is regarded as the greatest fast bowlers in the history of cricket. He holds the world record for most wickets in List A cricket with 881. He was the first bowler to reach the 500-wicket in ODI cricket. He was ranked as the best bowler in ODI of all time in 2002. Akram is considered to the Best Captain. He won 17 Man-of-the-Match awards in 104 tests and 22 in ODIs. He took 4 hat-tricks in International cricket. He hit 12 sixes in that, most by anyone in a test innings.

It is hard to find anyone who hasn’t heard the name of this legendary player. Sachin Tendulkar who is affectionately called Little Master by his fans is widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen of all time. The 39-year-old Tendulkar made his international debut in 1989 and still continue playing cricket. In his twenty-two years of cricket career, he has achieved many records in both Test and one-day international cricket. He is the highest run scorer and highest centurion in both format of the cricket game. So far he has scored 15470 runs in Test and 18426 runs in ODI respectively. He is the only player to reach the milestone of scoring a hundred centuries, including 51 centuries in Test and 49 centuries in ODI. He is also the only player to score fifty centuries in Test cricket. He is the first player to have scored double century in ODI cricket. He is also the first player to cross 10000 runs in one day cricket.

“I saw the scoreboard, and I was nearing my 200 with five overs to go, so I decided to go for the kill,” Mohit added. “I reached 250 with just two overs to go, I told my partner, ‘let me try if I can make 300’, and I got 30 off the last over.”

What you fail to appreciate is the difference in the balance between, say India and Australia. Whereas the great Indian batsmen will certainly match the great Australians, there would be no comparison between the sets of bowlers, as @Navillus so cleverly sketched. Even on Indian pitches Warne & O'Reilly would be more than a match for Kumble, Pras and Mankad. But if you put Lillee, McGrath & Miller against the Indian duo, you will get the mismatch of all time! So Australia will beat India, every time! (btw, I'm a Desi).

To those who suggest that this bowling attack lacks killer instinct, I partially agree. That is why despite his evident greatness I decided against Pras and went for Chandra! Agreed Kumble 's record is greater, but Kumble and Chandra wouls make as fearsome a combo as Warne and O'Reilly! Where does it say that you can't opt for two bowlers of the same kind for your team. Given the kind of bowlers the 2 Indians are, I think they would complement each other perfectly, just as Warne and O'Reilly would have done for Oz.

Sachin Tendulkar, in full Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar (born April 24, 1973, Bombay , India), Indian professional cricket player, considered by many to be one of the greatest batsmen of all time. In 2012 he became the first cricketer to score 100 centuries (100 runs in a single innings) in international play.

It's a fine 11. I would prefer Nissar or Amar Singh in place of Srinath, but Srinath is not a bad choice given the options. For the second spinner, it is a tossup between Pras and Bedi, and Pras is as good a choice as any. Glad Hazare made it.

Although India emerged as a major cricket-playing nation in 1983, the South Asian nation had given birth to many talented cricketers even before winning the World Cup in England. In fact, Indian players have not only ruled the world, but have rewritten the record books time and again. Let’s take a look at a list of 25 Indian cricketers, including batsmen, bowlers, and wicketkeepers, who have helped India win many matches with their brilliant performances on the field.

As far as averages is concerned, i HOPE you understand that averages are inflated by the number of Not Outs and had Lara been Not Out as many times as Sachin has been in his career, his average would have been:57.19 as compared to Sachin's 56.02. So if you bother to filter away/home matches also filter Zimbabwe/Bangladesh as opponents and number of not outs..

Sadagoppan Ramesh played just 19 Tests, in which he had 2 SDs, including one against Pakistan (60 and 96 in a series-levelling game remembered solely now for Anil Kumble’s 10 wickets in an innings). Nothing, including his low failure rate of 37%, justified his being discarded so early in his career.

There are very few Indian players who can claim to rival Sachin Tendulkar’s popularity. MS Dhoni is certainly one of them. The wicketkeeper-batsman took India’s domestic cricket by storm using brute force. His ability to consistently hit the ball out of stadiums held the domestic circuit in thrall. Dhoni lived up to his billing and didn’t take long to seal a place across all formats after making his ODI debut in 2004. For years, India craved for a wicket-keeper batsman who could beat the daylights out of opposition bowlers lower down the order, and Dhoni turned out to be that. His legend grew to another level after he captained India to the trophy in the inaugural World T20 in 2007. In 2011, he led the team to another World Cup win, this time in the 50-overs format besides winning the Champions Trophy in 2013. He also captained the Test team to No.1 in the ICC rankings, a first for the Indian cricket team. Dhoni retired from Tests in December 2014 and gave up captaincy of limited-overs teams in early 2017. In the twilight of his career, he still retains his power hitting and ability to finish off matches with composure of the highest order.

Acknowledged as a great of the game in England, he was less appreciated in India. However, he has a lasting legacy in the country of his birth in that that the 'Ranji Trophy', the national first-class competition for cricket in India, is named after him.

These are the highest impact batting performances in a series context. That is, the performance came when the player’s team was either level or behind in the series, and final series scoreline was decided by that match – where this high impact performance came.

Virat Kohli is a much higher impact batsman in ODIs than in Tests, but his run-scoring propensity is the second-best (after Pujara; for a minimum of 30 Tests) in India’s Test history. His ability to absorb pressure is at par with Laxman. That he has yet to register a single SD in Tests is also an anomaly perhaps, but it is remarkable that if we actually remove the big-match component, it is Kohli who emerges as the highest impact batsman in India’s Test cricket history (minimum of 40 Tests).

Iam very satisfied with this XI, they all deserve their place in the eleven. I don't know how Hazare's and Mankad's have played but i felt VVS Laxman is the most notable absentee. He is a very special player should have been in this squad atleast as a 12th player. Gavaskar's a legend easily on eof the best openers in the game, Sehwag a game changer he should fit in any team. Dravid an automatic selection and then th master called TENDULKAR simply the pride of India. Kapil Dev comes in as the allrounder best India have ever produced Dhoni has done enough to score over Kirmai's, Engineers', More n Mongia. Anil Kumble is India's greatest match winner he is in my choice is a trump card of this team. i have seen somebody written of Srinath n Prasanna here but they were absolutely wrong. Srinath has produced some match winning spells for India with limited support from other end but yes Zaheer is touch unlucky to miss out. Prasanna scores over Harbhajan and Bedi.

The remaining participants were split equally between those who were offered weight-loss classes for three months, and those offered them for 12 months. Then we changed things up. But the team do not expect 12-month programmes to be rolled out any time soon, pointing out that local authorities are strapped for cash and that currently even provision of three months of dieting classes is patchy. Weight Loss Surgery, also known as Bariatric Surgery can be categorised into many different procedures, each with their own pro’s and con’s and levels of complexity. The study found that those given a year-long pass to weight-loss classes lost more weight and were better able to keep it off than those on three-month programmes or those going it alone with self-help guides. The results show that, on average, those offered self-help guides lost 3.26kg after a year, while those offered weight loss classes for three months or 12 months lost 4.75kg and 6.76kg respectively. “One of the things we see with weight loss is that the more weight you lose, and the better you keep it off, the bigger the health benefits,” said Amy Ahern, first author of the study from the University of Cambridge.

However, moving from offering a three-month to a 12-month weight-loss programme has a net cost of £49 per person, over a 25-year period. The researchers then used a model to explore how much the different weight-loss classes would cost over a 25-year period. Answers to specific problems may not apply to everyone. Despite the 12-month programme being more expensive than either three months of weight-loss classes or the use of self-help guides, researchers say the quality of life gained by individuals means that according to Nice benchmarks it would be considered to be cost effective to move to offering the longer course. Quick-fix diets can lead to a yo-yoing effect of drastic weight loss followed by weight gain, resulting in a vicious cycle.

Gastric Balloon For many patients with a BMI (body mass index) of 27 - 35 surgery is not always available or recommended according to the NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) guidelines, as patients with a lower BMI do not normally qualify for weight loss surgery.

Weight Loss Surgery provides a surgical solution to people who are obese in order to help them lose weight. However, a review of several studies found viscous fiber reduced appetite and calorie intake much more than other types (29, 30).

This doesn't mean crash diet (anything less than 1500 calories), which usually ends up with you either getting weaker or giving up in desperation. It keeps my hunger down so I snack less throughout the day. Fortunately, you can do several things to lose water weight.

Overweight or obese patients should be offered 12 months of weight-loss classes rather than the standard three months, according to research showing that the move could prevent tens of thousands of cases of obesity-related diseases over the next 25 years. The new study, he says, offers important evidence that “it should be possible and it is cost effective,” he said.

As you can see there is nothing glamorous about getting super lean, it isn't even that complicated and I promise this is what I actually do and what my clients will do. The upshot was that offering three-months of weight loss classes would save about £2.68 per person over 25 years compared to offering self-help guides, as a result of savings from a drop in cases of weight-related diseases.

It may seem like these are problems to worry about in the future, but time flies by and tomorrow becomes today. The web site does not have answers to all problems. By contrast, it’s very easy to overeat processed foods.

The team followed up on the participants after three months, one year and two years. Published in the Lancet by a team of researchers from institutions across the UK, the study involved 1,267 overweight or obese participants split randomly into three groups.

We are a married couple in our 60s with grownup children who come to stay. My husband has his own bedroom and is addicted to sex chatrooms. The sounds can be heard all over the house every night. He refuses to acknowledge this, and says it is all in my imagination. Should I leave the marriage now to protect the wider family, or wait for matters to be overheard by our children? (Friends no longer stay.) A counsellor has advised turning detective, but I feel ill with the worry of it all and have little energy left.

Rooms, as the feature is called, is “for public conversations about topics and interests. Each room has a link that can be shared so anyone on Messenger can join the conversation.” It is a spin-off of Facebook’s standalone app, called Rooms also, which launched in 2014, and was based on the same premise. However, it wasn’t very popular and was shut down a year later.

A chat room is a virtual place on the Internet where people can get together and type messages to each other using text. People use programs like IRC to join a chat room and type messages or send pictures to the other people within that chat. There are also other programs called instant messengers to stay in contact with friends, colleagues and other people. Websites on the Internet often have types of chat rooms built into them, and lots of chat rooms also use webcams. Chat rooms are normally used as tools to talk with people that are far away, but many people still use them to talk to people who live near them, because it's very convenient.

Newport Crown Court heard the RAF veteran started using the internet to find a housekeeper after his wife died in 2014. After learning to use chat rooms, he began talking to what he thought were two girls aged 11 and 12, and within half an hour started talking about sex and tried to arrange to meet the youngest girl. Over several weeks, Gifford groomed the girl and sent explicit photos of himself. He was confronted by the group when he arrived to meet the fictional girl at Llanhilleth Railway Station near Abertillery.

Jakarta’s also going to help ServiceNow’s push beyond IT, especially into customer service. The company thinks it has a big opportunity here because it feels that its rivals in the field are tied to CRM, which wasn’t built to do customer service but became the de facto source of information about customers. ServiceNow’s schtick in all fields is creating workflows that span multiple applications, so that instead of hitting “computer says no” moments due to silos, whichever app or department is required to achieve a business outcome gets told when and where to play its part.

The Chat Room is a space where delegates can talk about anything that’s on their mind. Some of the topics looked at in the main meetings and seminars during the events can raise important questions in young people and because of this we want to provide a safe space where they can talk about how they feel, ask questions about things they don’t understand, and receive prayer. To be on this team you’ll need to be a good listener as that will be your main role! You’ll be providing a listening ear and chatting and praying with delegates, but you’re not there to solve all of their problems or counsel them. You should be friendly, good at interacting with young people, and good at working in a team as you’ll usually meet with each person in a pair. You will hear all sorts of topics being discussed – anything from sexuality to family problems, mental health issues to bullying – and should be comfortable with praying one-on one with people. The Chat Room team will work closely with the Connect team who handle any welfare issues that arise. After each session, you’ll need to complete a short form so that we can keep track of the age and gender split of the Chat Room users and to have an overview of the kind of issues that are being discussed. The Chat Room is open 9.30pm – 11pm on Day 1 and then 1-5pm and 9.30-11pm on Days 2-5, plus you’ll have a short meeting with your team each day too. You will need to arrange your own accommodation but in return for your hard work we will provide you with an event pass and all your meals (dinner of Day 1 until breakfast of Day 6) – winning! EXTRA REQUIREMENTS You’ll be required to apply for a DBS certificate before we can confirm your place on this team. Information will be sent to you when we process your initial application but if you already have a DBS with Soul Survivor that is less than three years old or you’re subscribed to the update service, then you won’t have to complete a new one – winner! Just drop us an email with the details and we can take it from there.

It's crucial that you pay attention to the seasoning throughout the cooking process when you're making soup. The flavors naturally evolve over time as the ingredients meld, so taste as often as you can. Be bold about herbs, spices, and other seasonings, while also remaining mindful of how they complement one another.

7. Simmer savvy: Once soup has come to a boil, reduce to a simmer and make sure that it stays there. Boil things too vigorously, and the vegetables will get mushy, the meat will toughen, and the noodles will start to break down.

preparing tomato puree for tomato soup: first rinse the tomatoes really well and keep aside. remove the stems if there are any. in a saucepan or pot take enough water (approx 5-6 cups). so that the tomatoes get immersed completely. add 1 teaspoon salt to the water and bring the water to a rolling boil. add the tomatoes and switch off the fire. close the saucepan or pot with the lid. let the tomatoes be immersed in the hot water for 20-30 minutes. drain the water and let them become warm or cool down. in the meantime, finely chop the onion and garlic. keep aside. once the tomatoes become warm or cool down, then peel them. slice off the eye part from the tomatoes. then directly chop the tomatoes above the blender jar so that the juices drop directly inside the blender jar. if you cannot do this, then chop the tomatoes on a chopping board and add everything to the blender including the juices. blend the tomatoes to a smooth puree. keep aside.

Heat 3 Tbsp. olive oil until shimmering over medium heat in a large soup pot. Add 1 chopped large onion, 2 stalks chopped celery, 1 tsp. kosher salt, and ½ tsp. black pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until soft, about 10 minutes. Add the 2 tsp. dried oregano and 1 tsp. fennel seeds and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add 1¼ lbs. quartered new potatoes and 8 cups chicken broth and bring to a boil.

Adding ingredients at the wrong time Shutterstock Different soup ingredients require different cooking times. Avoid adding all of them into the pot at once just to make it a little easier on yourself. Instead, try layering them with the aim to build flavor as well as get everything to finish cooking at the same time. Most soups begin with a base of sauteed aromatics such as onion, celery, or garlic. From there, you add the stock, water, or both and begin to layer the vegetables according to how long they will need to cook. If using, add the grain or pasta. Since any meat or poultry should already be cooked, you can add these in near the end to warm through.

6. Take stock of your stock: When it comes to making clear, brothy soups, the stock that you use is the most important ingredient. Poorly flavoured stock will ruin the entire pot of soup. For clear soups, homemade broth is always the best choice. If that isn’t an option for you, purchase butcher’s broth instead of grocery store brands. (You can cheat puréed and cream soups with canned broth in a pinch.)

Later, I'm invited to the Not For Sale ceremony awarding trainees their catering certificates. The women are invited on stage to collect their qualifications and th crowd applauds for each one. Vera, who completed her Dignita training after being trafficked to the Netherlands as a housekeeper, takes to the microphone to talk about her experience.

Choose Your Own Soup Adventure: To flavor the soup, raid your spice cupboard. Try curry powder, chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, or any other warm and toasty spices. Get creative with salt; try smoked salt or truffle salt. Add dried herbs such as mint, oregano, or sage.

Unlike baking, where you need to follow a recipe, soup is very flexible. You can adapt any soup to make it your own and it’s almost impossible to get it wrong, so it’s ideal for the novice cook.

This could just be a chopped onion, or a stick of celery and a carrot. It’s not the main flavour but is the starting point for soup and adds depth. Finely chop and sauté in a little oil until soft, or brown to add colour and a deeper flavour.

Healthy food swaps - Live Well - NHS Choices

What should I eat? East fewer high sugar foods and more wholegrain cereals, nuts, beans, lentils, fruit and vegetables. Sugary foods are absorbed quickly into the bloodstream. This may cause an initial ‘high’ or surge of energy that soon wears off as the body increases its insulin production, leaving you feeling tired and low. Wholegrain cereals, pulses, fruit and vegetables are more filling and, because the sugar in these foods is absorbed more slowly, don’t cause mood swings. These foods are more nutritious as they contain thiamin (B1), a vitamin that has been associated with control of mood, and folate and zinc (supplements of these nutrients have been shown to improve the mood of people with depression in a small number of studies).

“ ‘Healthy’ is a bankrupt word,” Roxanne Sukol, preventive medicine specialist at the Cleveland Clinic, medical director of its Wellness Enterprise and a nutrition autodidact (“They didn’t teach us anything about nutrition in medical school”), told me as we strolled the aisles of a grocery store. “Our food isn’t healthy. We are healthy. Our food is nutritious. I’m all about the words. Words are the key to giving people the tools they need to figure out what to eat. Everyone’s so confused.”

Dairy products are major sources of the protein and calcium essential for building strong bones, so have an important part to play in maintaining a balanced diet. As diets low in saturated fat reduce the risk of developing heart disease, we’ve included all unflavoured, fat-free or skimmed milk – including fresh, long-life, UHT and powdered fat-free milk – in the healthy food list. We’ve also included all unsweetened soy milk, fat-free yoghurt – plain and flavoured – with no added sugar and plain, unflavoured, fat-free cottage cheese.

Nearly two thirds of those who do not report daily mental health problems eat fresh fruit or fruit juice every day, compared with less than half of those who do report daily mental health problems. This pattern is similar for fresh vegetables and salad. Those who report some level of mental health problem also eat fewer healthy foods (fresh fruit and vegetables, organic foods and meals made from scratch) and more unhealthy foods (chips and crisps, chocolate, ready meals and takeaways).

These healthy fats have been shown to be a natural aid to weight loss. A 2001 study, for instance, found that people eating a MUFA-rich diet lost an average of nine pounds, while their counterparts on a low-fat diet gained six, on average.

Protein is a key element of a balanced diet. It provides the amino acids needed for various bodily functions.  To limit your intake of saturated fat, You should prioritise healthier protein options such as fish (especially oily fish), seafood, tofu, eggs, skinless lean chicken and turkey. Eggs A good source of high-quality protein and B vitamins. The healthy food list includes all whole, uncooked eggs. Tofu Soya bean curd (tofu) is a good source of calcium and protein.

Protein is a key element of a balanced diet. It provides the amino acids needed for various bodily functions.  To limit your intake of saturated fat, You should prioritise healthier protein options such as fish (especially oily fish), seafood, tofu, eggs, skinless lean chicken and turkey.

The kidney beans are chock full of protein, helping this dish deliver a whopping 29 grams per serving (not to mention a full 8 grams of protein). The chili powder, meanwhile, gets its kick from capsaicin, a fiery compound found in chili peppers that literally heats up your body, spurring it to burn more calories.

Vegetables You should eat vegetables every day. Containing lots of vitamins, minerals, fibre and phytonutrients, they help promote good health and prevent disease. Our healthy food list includes all whole fresh, frozen and dried vegetables and herbs, as well as all unseasoned, raw, chopped and sliced vegetables and herbs. Our healthy food list also includes some unflavoured, unseasoned canned vegetables with no added salt. The list doesn’t include fresh, frozen and dried vegetables and herbs with added spices, seasoning, flavouring, fat, oil or sauces. Fruit You should eat fruit every day. Like vegetables, it’s a good source of many vitamins, minerals, fibre and phytonutrients that help promote good health and prevent disease. However, eating fruit should not replace eating vegetables. Our healthy food list includes all whole fresh and certain frozen, canned and dried fruit. It also includes plain, raw, cut or sliced fresh fruit, as long as it doesn’t include any added sugar, flavouring or other ingredients. Carbohydrates Carbohydrates are an important part of a healthy diet. They provide the body with a steady supply of glucose throughout the day, to help keep energy levels up. You should prioritise wholegrain and high-fibre foods – found in oats, wholegrain bread, brown and wild rice, for example – with at least half of grains eaten being whole grains. That’s because they’re a healthier choice than refined grains, due to the additional fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Protein Protein is a key element of a balanced diet. It provides the amino acids needed for various bodily functions.  To limit your intake of saturated fat, You should prioritise healthier protein options such as fish (especially oily fish), seafood, tofu, eggs, skinless lean chicken and turkey. Eggs A good source of high-quality protein and B vitamins. The healthy food list includes all whole, uncooked eggs. Tofu Soya bean curd (tofu) is a good source of calcium and protein. All, raw, unseasoned and unflavoured tofu is included in the healthy food benefit. Seafood The healthy food list includes all raw, unseasoned and unflavoured seafood. It doesn’t include all seafood in sauces, crumbs, batter, cooked or pre-prepared meals as well as flavoured and processed seafood products. Dairy Dairy products are major sources of the protein and calcium essential for building strong bones, so have an important part to play in maintaining a balanced diet. As diets low in saturated fat reduce the risk of developing heart disease, we’ve included all unflavoured, fat-free or skimmed milk – including fresh, long-life, UHT and powdered fat-free milk – in the healthy food list. We’ve also included all unsweetened soy milk, fat-free yoghurt – plain and flavoured – with no added sugar and plain, unflavoured, fat-free cottage cheese. Legumes It’s highly recommended you eat legumes - beans, peas and lentils - regularly. They’re a good source of protein, fibre and several vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. Therefore, the healthy food list includes all dried and some canned legumes. It doesn’t include all texturised or processed soya products, such as burgers and sausages. Oils, nuts, seeds and spreads Vegetable oils and spreads, nuts, and seeds are rich in unsaturated fat, which is highly beneficial in promoting health and preventing disease. Oils You should prioritise monounsaturated fats, especially if you’re at risk of coronary heart disease. Oils rich in monounsaturated fats, such as olive oil, are also a good source of phytonutrients and antioxidants. For these reasons, the healthy food list includes olive oil, canola oil and avocado oil. Nuts Nuts and seeds are good sources of unsaturated fats, fibre and phytonutrients. Therefore, the healthy food list includes all unsalted, unseasoned, unflavoured and raw nuts. It doesn’t include salted, seasoned, flavoured or nuts roasted in oil. Seeds The healthy food list includes all seeds as long as they’re not salted, flavoured, seasoned or roasted in oil.

Then again, why should she question it, given that we allow food companies, advertisers and food researchers to do our thinking for us? In the 1970s, no one questioned whether eggs really were the heart-attack risk nutritionists warned us about. Now, of course, eggs have become such a cherished food that many people raise their own laying hens. Such examples of food confusion and misinformation abound.

Mother’s Day: Inspiration for Father’s Day The “Mother’s Day” we celebrate today has its origins in the peace-and-reconciliation campaigns of the post-Civil War era. During the 1860s, at the urging of activist Ann Reeves Jarvis, one divided West Virginia town celebrated “Mother’s Work Days” that brought together the mothers of Confederate and Union soldiers. Did You Know? There are more than 70 million fathers in the United States.However, Mother’s Day did not become a commercial holiday until 1908, when–inspired by Jarvis’s daughter, Anna Jarvis, who wanted to honor her own mother by making Mother’s Day a national holiday–the John Wanamaker department store in Philadelphia sponsored a service dedicated to mothers in its auditorium. Thanks in large part to this association with retailers, who saw great potential for profit in the holiday, Mother’s Day caught on right away. In 1909, 45 states observed the day, and in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson approved a resolution that made the second Sunday in May a holiday in honor of “that tender, gentle army, the mothers of America.”

In New Zealand, Father's Day is celebrated on the first Sunday of September and it is not a public holiday. Fathers' Day seems to have been first observed at St Matthew's Church, Auckland on 14 July 1929 and first appeared in commercial advertising the following year. By 1931 other churches had adopted the day. In 1935 much of Australia moved to mark the day at the beginning of September and New Zealand followed, with a Wellington advert in 1937, a Christchurch Salvation Army service in 1938 and in Auckland from 1939.

Pete is delighted at how Rose has turned out. They talk in the vestry about the future and time travel, but Rose is strangely vague about what he is like in the future. Jackie comes in with the young Mickey, and is jealous again. Pete tries to explain who Rose is, but Rose tells him not to let Jackie know. In the basilica, the Doctor is looking after the infant Rose. The adult Rose shows up. The Doctor apologises for snapping. He was not really going to abandon her, but confesses that he has no idea what to do and that nothing will stop the creatures forever. When the Time Lords were still around, paradoxes like this could be repaired, but now there is nothing to stop the creatures, who are continuing to sterilise the entire Earth of human life until pockets of survivors in old refuges like this become all that's left of the human race. The TARDIS key glows hot in the Doctor's pocket, and the Doctor realises it's still connected to the TARDIS, sparking hope. Although the TARDIS' interior dimensions were thrown out of the wound in time, the ship is still linked to the key and he can summon it back.

Many Father's Day gifts have slogans such as "The World's Best Dad", "For My Father" or just a simple "Dad" on them. The increase in print-on-demand services offered by photo processing companies has made personalized gifts even more popular for Father's Day. Photographs of children can be printed on desk calendars, mugs, T-shirts, mouse mats, bags and even ties. Many fathers are expected to take these to the office to remind them of their families while they are working.

In Taiwan, Father's Day is not an official holiday, but is widely observed on August 8, the eighth day of the eighth month of the year. In Mandarin Chinese, the pronunciation of the number eight is bā, and the pronunciation is very similar to the character "爸" "bà", which means "Pa" or "dad". The eighth day of the eighth month (bā-bā) is a pun for dad (爸爸 or "bàba"). The Taiwanese, therefore, sometimes refer to August 8 as "Bābā Holiday" as a pun for "Dad's Holiday" (爸爸節) or the more formal "Father's Day" (父親節).

Being a father has been, without a doubt, my greatest source of achievement, pride and inspiration. Fatherhood has taught me about unconditional love, reinforced the importance of giving back and taught me how to be a better person. Naveen Jain

The first such “Father’s Day” was held in Spokane in 1910, with a number of towns and cities across America later following suit. Others say it is Grace Golden Clayton, from Fairmont, West Virginia, who should be credited with the concept of Father’s Day, after she suggested a day celebrating fatherhood in 1908. She put forward the idea following a mine explosion in a nearby town which killed more than 360 men – arguing that children in the town needed a time to remember their fathers.

Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad, and that's why I call you dad, because you are so special to me. You taught me the game and you taught me how to play it right. Wade Boggs

In Thailand, the birthday of the king, is set as Father's Day. December 5 is the birthday of the late king Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX). Traditionally, Thais celebrate by giving their father or grandfather a canna flower (ดอกพุทธรักษา Dok Buddha Ruksa), which is considered a masculine flower; however, this is not as commonly practiced today. Thai people will wear yellow on this day to show respect for the late king, because yellow is the color of the day for Monday, the day King Bhumibol Adulyadej was born. Thais flood the Sanam Luang, a massive park in front of the palace, to watch the king give his annual speech, and often stay until the evening, when there is a national ceremony. Thais will light candles and show respect to the king by declaring their faith. This ceremony happens in almost every village in Thailand, and even overseas at Thai organizations.

Father’s Day: Controversy and Commercialism Many men, however, continued to disdain the day. As one historian writes, they “scoffed at the holiday’s sentimental attempts to domesticate manliness with flowers and gift-giving, or they derided the proliferation of such holidays as a commercial gimmick to sell more products–often paid for by the father himself.” During the 1920s and 1930s, a movement arose to scrap Mother’s Day and Father’s Day altogether in favor of a single holiday, Parents’ Day. Every year on Mother’s Day, pro-Parents’ Day groups rallied in New York City’s Central Park–a public reminder, said Parents’ Day activist and radio performer Robert Spere, “that both parents should be loved and respected together.” Paradoxically, however, the Great Depression derailed this effort to combine and de-commercialize the holidays. Struggling retailers and advertisers redoubled their efforts to make Father’s Day a “second Christmas” for men, promoting goods such as neckties, hats, socks, pipes and tobacco, golf clubs and other sporting goods, and greeting cards. When World War II began, advertisers began to argue that celebrating Father’s Day was a way to honor American troops and support the war effort. By the end of the war, Father’s Day may not have been a federal holiday, but it was a national institution. In 1972, in the middle of a hard-fought presidential re-election campaign, Richard Nixon signed a proclamation making Father’s Day a federal holiday at last. Today, economists estimate that Americans spend more than $1 billion each year on Father’s Day gifts.

“When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.” –Mark Twain (1835–1910)

If your dad’s a meat-lover, beef up his Fathers’ Day with the ultimate roast dinner. Treat him to all the trimmings – Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes and lashings of gravy – to really get his juices flowing.

On June 19, 1910, a Father's Day celebration was held at the YMCA in Spokane, Washington by Sonora Smart Dodd. Her father, the civil war veteran William Jackson Smart, was a single parent who raised his six children there. She was also a member of Old Centenary Presbyterian Church (now Knox Presbyterian Church), where she first proposed the idea. After hearing a sermon about Jarvis' Mother's Day in 1909 at Central Methodist Episcopal Church, she told her pastor that fathers should have a similar holiday to honor them. Although she initially suggested June 5, her father's birthday, the pastors did not have enough time to prepare their sermons, and the celebration was deferred to the third Sunday in June. Several local clergymen accepted the idea, and on June 19, 1910, the first Father's Day, "sermons honoring fathers were presented throughout the city".

i lost my my father on December the 5th, 1965. i am now 65 years old and that remains the single worst day of my life. i was blessed to have him 13 years and in another sense, i am doubly blessed to have avoided any other calamities of that level. i've lost friends and relatives to suicide, cancer, accidents, and old age. i watched the space shuttle explode and the Twin Towers collapse but nothing has ever touched the depth of that loss on that cold Sunday morning when i was 13.

Father's Day reply Submitted by Liliana Siciliano on June 6, 2017 - 1:00pm very nice post. I instead lost my Dad in 2014 and mother was gone much earlier in life very young at age 58 in 1991. They were part of my life. Up until today, when I see their pictures I cannot stop crying and asking GOD why they are no longer with me. He knows why and I have to accept the fact that they are gone but to a better place called Heaven.

At Pete's flat, Rose looks around and remarks on all the various bits and pieces of entrepreneurship that her father is involved in, including health drinks and solar power panels, which he will now have the opportunity to exploit. The Doctor is angry with Rose, implying that she had planned this from the moment she heard that the TARDIS was a time machine. Rose says there was no plan, that she just saw a chance to stop it and did so, and questions why it is all right for the Doctor to save people but not for her to save her father. The Doctor calls her a selfish and stupid, another person who was more concerned with seeing what the universe could do for them. He knows what he is doing while she does not; the presence of two sets of them made that location a vulnerable point. They argue, more and more heatedly, until the Doctor demands the TARDIS key back and leaves, telling her she's getting left behind. Rose hands over the key but tells the Doctor she knows he'll never leave without her. Pete looks out of the kitchen at this point, thinking it a lover's quarrel. Pete and she go to the wedding. At the wedding, the church is only a quarter full as Stuart Hoskin's dad tries to persuade him not to go through with it. Outside the bride arrives with Jackie and baby Rose, but is asked to drive around the block due to all the people who haven't turned up.

Using an omni-channel strategy is becoming increasingly important for enterprises who must adapt to the changing expectations of consumers who want ever-more sophisticated offerings throughout the purchasing journey. Retailers are increasingly focusing on their online presence, including online shops that operate alongside existing store-based outlets. The "endless aisle" within the retail space can lead consumers to purchase products online that fit their needs while retailers do not have to carry the inventory within the physical location of the store. Solely Internet-based retailers are also entering the market; some are establishing corresponding store-based outlets to provide personal services, professional help, and tangible experiences with their products.

Most experts believe that 'digital' is not just yet another channel for marketing. It requires a new approach to marketing and a new understanding of customer behaviour. For example, it requires companies to analyse and quantify the value of downloads of apps on mobile devices, tweets on Twitter, likes on Facebook and so on.

This module provides you with the opportunity to explore, analyse and assess the processes of digital innovation and related product and service development. You will examine the development of new marketing products, services, digital processes and applications, emphasising the need for organisations to be creative and innovative in their endeavour to sustain competitive advantage within their markets.

Thanks to the digital portfolio that I created on the course, I was able to get a better job as a Digital Assistant/Content Editor for the new website at LILA. My new employers congratulated me on my website (digital portfolio) and my blog. They also told me that they liked my website, and that having one is very important when you apply for these kinds of jobs. Lourdes Villalobos, Graduate

Game Center is an online multiplayer "social gaming network" released by Apple. It allows users to "invite friends to play a game, start a multiplayer game through matchmaking, track their achievements, and compare their high scores on a leaderboard." iOS 5 and above adds support for profile photos.

Move content manually from your Android device to your iOS device ...

To some, one of the best features of iOS 10 is the ability to delete most of the preinstalled apps from Apple. Everything can go, excepting a few critical apps like the App Store, Camera, Clock, Health, Messages, Phone, Photos, Safari, Settings, and Wallet. Minimalists will rejoice. I know I savored finally deleting the Stocks app after eight years of ignoring it.

Apple iOS - OpenStreetMap Wiki

I've enjoyed using the Apple Music service, but the app has been a pain since day one. The new version is an improvement, but confusion remains. Most of that, I believe, comes from the fundamentally confusing nature of Apple's current music strategy, and the changing face of, well, music. At a time when digitally purchased, imported, and not-purchased-but-saved-locally-from-a-streaming-service tracks all commingle, the result can't help but be a bit bewildering.

iOS Developers: Apple Now Rejecting Apps Not In Compliance With ...

TechRadar's take: Apple News is a worthy Flipboard alternative. It's biggest issue it's tucked away in an app, with a small box in the Today menu for a few story snippets. That's how we access Apple News 90% of the time, and this should have a much bigger, graphically rich presence, like Flipboard on Samsung devices.

A new Browse section shows off featured tracks, videos, and chart-topping songs, as well as curated playlists. This last feature seems to be aimed squarely at the Editors' Choice winning Slacker Radio, which hangs its hat on human-curated music. The Radio section still features the bewildering Beats 1 24-hour streaming music experience, along with stations created from your preference and created by Apple. The new Search page shows off your recent searches—a simple tool that should have been available at launch—and clearly shows whether you're searching your library of purchased and streaming songs, or the entirety of Apple's music library.

“The visibility from Search Ads on the App Store has been huge for us in helping drive iPlum downloads. Compared to other platforms, Search Ads dominates the paid channels for our in-app monetization, because of all the quality users we get from Apple.”

The iOS user interface is based upon direct manipulation, using multi-touch gestures. Interface control elements consist of sliders, switches, and buttons. Interaction with the OS includes gestures such as swipe, tap, pinch, and reverse pinch, all of which have specific definitions within the context of the iOS operating system and its multi-touch interface. Internal accelerometers are used by some applications to respond to shaking the device (one common result is the undo command) or rotating it in three dimensions (one common result is switching between portrait and landscape mode). Apple has been significantly praised for incorporating thorough accessibility functions into iOS, enabling users with vision and hearing disabilities to properly use its products.

Your privacy always comes first. That’s why iOS 10 uses on-device intelligence to identify the people, objects and scenes in Photos, and power QuickType suggestions. And when you do share sensitive data with Apple for services like Siri and Maps, it’s always encrypted and never used to build user profiles.

In 2010, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) successfully convinced the U.S. Copyright Office to allow an exemption to the general prohibition on circumvention of copyright protection systems under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). The exemption allows jailbreaking of iPhones for the sole purpose of allowing legally obtained applications to be added to the iPhone. The exemption does not affect the contractual relations between Apple and an iPhone owner, for example, jailbreaking voiding the iPhone warranty; however, it is solely based on Apple's discretion on whether they will fix jailbroken devices in the event that they need to be repaired. At the same time, the Copyright Office exempted unlocking an iPhone from DMCA's anticircumvention prohibitions. Unlocking an iPhone allows the iPhone to be used with any wireless carrier using the same GSM or CDMA technology for which the particular phone model was designed to operate.

The operating system was unveiled with the iPhone at the Macworld Conference & Expo on January 9, 2007, and released in June of that year. At the time of its unveiling in January, Steve Jobs claimed: "iPhone runs OS X" and runs "desktop applications", but at the time of the iPhone's release, the operating system was renamed "iPhone OS". Initially, third-party native applications were not supported. Steve Jobs' reasoning was that developers could build web applications through the Safari web browser that "would behave like native apps on the iPhone". In October 2007, Apple announced that a native Software Development Kit (SDK) was under development and that they planned to put it "in developers' hands in February". On March 6, 2008, Apple held a press event, announcing the iPhone SDK.

That's just the start. It's also opening up Maps to third-party developers, so Uber riders can call, follow and pay for their ride without ever leaving Apple's app. It's getting there.

I'll talk about stickers first, because they are the more straightforward of the two features. Stickers are similar to emoji in that they are premade images you add to messages. They've been available in many messaging apps for years, but are new to Apple apps. Emoji, however, are Unicode characters that are approved by a central authority and can only be adapted for different platforms. This is why emoji look different on iOS, Android, Twitter, and other platforms. Stickers have no such limitations, and appear the same everywhere.

When you activate the Portrait mode for the first time, you're warned that Apple considers this a beta feature. That's a bit odd, considering that Apple waited months after the initial OS release to push it to users, but I digress. Once activated, a small box will light up when you can use the effect. If you're too close or too far away (you need to be within 8 feet) or the room is too dark, the phone alerts you. The photo size is a bit more narrow than the Square setting.

In my testing, I successfully sent a full dollar via Venmo to my friend Sarah. I summoned Siri with the Hey Siri command, and instructed the assistant to send a $1 to Sarah (three cents added as a surcharge). Siri obliged within seconds, asking my permission before the transaction completed. It was a totally seamless experience, and one that finally delivers on the fast and hands-free experience Apple promised with Siri.

Apple News is reaching 60 million people every month with 2,000 publications and it's in for a redesign, too. The For You tab now breaks news into personalized topics and hand-picked stories by editors.

Nowhere is this truer than in Messages, where a deluge of functionality is now at your fingertips. Here, Apple has found a smart way to play to what has always been the real strength behind iPhone: providing a curated platform where talented developers can show off their work. The addition of apps to Messages delivers on the new bot-centric experience promised by Microsoft (in Skype), Google, and Facebook; one where the commerce and creativity tools we've come to love are close at hand and work nearly seamlessly. The new Portrait mode continues to make Apple an attractive choice for selfie-takers and photographers alike, despite the improvements seen with the Pixel's camera.

Slap them on top of bubbles, dress up a photo, or even put one on another sticker. Available in the new App Store for iMessage.

To get iOS 10, you have only to wait until your phone informs you that it's ready to update. If you can't wait, just open the Settings app, tap General, and then tap Software Update. Be sure to back up your phone and keep an AC adapter handy. For more detailed instructions, you can read How to Get iOS 10. Once the update is installed, take some time to get to know your new OS. Apple has a habit of peppering updates with secret features that often go unnoticed.

Apple has also announced macOS High Sierra for its computers. The new software comes with a refined, faster Safari that blocks videos from playing automatically and stops websites from tracking users. It is compatible with virtual reality for the first time and features tweaks to Mail, Photos and file storage.

Advertising helps fund our journalism and keep it truly independent. It helps to build our international editorial team, from war correspondents to investigative reporters, commentators to critics.

TechRadar's take: Messages is now ridiculous and fully competes with Facebook and its apps. That's good and bad. There's a lot to learn here, and it's only going to be more enjoyable over time if you're not scared off. iMessages is the best combined SMS and internet messages app out there, with Mac and iPad support for easy, cross-platform messaging. You'll have to update your Mac to Sierra to get many of the effects, but it's well worth it.

The Today tab will be updated daily with different content, such as an App of the Day, tips on how to get the most out of popular apps and other app news. You can keep scrolling down to see the featured apps from previous days.

From the Digital Touch menu, you can also write messages with your fingertip that appear as animations on the recipient's phone. It's the best-executed Digital Touch feature, and I especially like that the message animations move at the same speed at which you drew them. You can even snap a video or still picture and doodle all over it. It works well for still photos, but the video option needs work. Instead of drawing over a completed video, you draw as the video records. It's counterintuitive, and I found in my testing that the final product jiggled like I had been poking my camera while I shot. Because I had been.

That's the only major improvement we see in iOS 10.3, but it has performance perks that are harder to see at first, as we're currently experiencing with Siri.

iOS Design Themes As an app designer, you have the opportunity to deliver an extraordinary product that rises to the top of the App Store charts. To do so, you'll need to meet high expectations for quality and functionality. Three primary themes differentiate iOS from other platforms: Clarity. Throughout the system, text is legible at every size, icons are precise and lucid, adornments are subtle and appropriate, and a sharpened focus on functionality motivates the design. Negative space, color, fonts, graphics, and interface elements subtly highlight important content and convey interactivity. Deference. Fluid motion and a crisp, beautiful interface help people understand and interact with content while never competing with it. Content typically fills the entire screen, while translucency and blurring often hint at more. Minimal use of bezels, gradients, and drop shadows keep the interface light and airy, while ensuring that content is paramount. Depth. Distinct visual layers and realistic motion convey hierarchy, impart vitality, and facilitate understanding. Touch and discoverability heighten delight and enable access to functionality and additional content without losing context. Transitions provide a sense of depth as you navigate through content. Design Principles To maximize impact and reach, keep the following principles in mind as you imagine your app’s identity. Aesthetic Integrity Aesthetic integrity represents how well an app’s appearance and behavior integrate with its function. For example, an app that helps people perform a serious task can keep them focused by using subtle, unobtrusive graphics, standard controls, and predictable behaviors. On the other hand, an immersive app, such as a game, can deliver a captivating appearance that promises fun and excitement, while encouraging discovery. Consistency A consistent app implements familiar standards and paradigms by using system-provided interface elements, well-known icons, standard text styles, and uniform terminology. The app incorporates features and behaviors in ways people expect. Direct Manipulation The direct manipulation of onscreen content engages people and facilitates understanding. Users experience direct manipulation when they rotate the device or use gestures to affect onscreen content. Through direct manipulation, they can see the immediate, visible results of their actions. Feedback Feedback acknowledges actions and shows results to keep people informed. The built-in iOS apps provide perceptible feedback in response to every user action. Interactive elements are highlighted briefly when tapped, progress indicators communicate the status of long-running operations, and animation and sound help clarify the results of actions. Metaphors People learn more quickly when an app’s virtual objects and actions are metaphors for familiar experiences—whether rooted in the real or digital world. Metaphors work well in iOS because people physically interact with the screen. They move views out of the way to expose content beneath. They drag and swipe content. They toggle switches, move sliders, and scroll through picker values. They even flick through pages of books and magazines. User Control Throughout iOS, people—not apps—are in control. An app can suggest a course of action or warn about dangerous consequences, but it’s usually a mistake for the app to take over the decision-making. The best apps find the correct balance between enabling users and avoiding unwanted outcomes. An app can make people feel like they’re in control by keeping interactive elements familiar and predictable, confirming destructive actions, and making it easy to cancel operations, even when they’re already underway.

That said, with Android it is possible to install apps without going through Google. WonTube's Free YouTube Downloader for Android is one—you can download the APK (Android application package) file to sideload on an Android device. Find it in your device's downloads and click it to install. (You may have to go into your security settings and enable "Unknown sources.") After that, launch the app, use it to surf around YouTube, and the download links and video management features are built right in. YTD and KeepVid, mentioned above, have similar apps.

KeepVid Supporting downloads from 28 sites, KeepVid does more than video (as evidenced by supporting downloads from SoundCloud). Just paste in the video's URL and click download next to it—don't click the big advertisement that typically also says "download" (even KeepVid admits it's an "ads trap" in its FAQ page). You'll get back a slew of download options, video and audio, in every size possible, including MP3 audio. Right-click the file you want and select "Save Link as" to download to the desktop. The site requires Java to run.

Despite being ridiculed, Long remains determined. His next project is to build a seaplane, which he plans to transport to Svay Rieng by truck before launching it from the Waiko River.

June 13, 2017 This is a great app. I love how you can make your own videos and post them on the internet for the whole world to see in just a couple steps. I don't know why everyone keeps complaining about ads when they watch a one hour video. if you don't like the ads, don't watch a video that is an hour long. Ads are how the YouTubers you watch make money to make more daily content for your entertainment. What I'm trying to say here is that YouTube is a great app and you should download it today to keep up with your favorite YouTubers and to keep up with what is going on in the world around you and so much more cool stuff everyday.

Simon Arcila June 4, 2017 The new design is horrible. No more swiping between tabs, the tabs being on the bottom make it harder to use. It was just fine with the red design this looks nothing like an android and and just feel like a downgrade to be consistent with the iOS app. Full Review

Marc G June 2, 2017 Works good. A feature where you can scroll to videos that were uploaded weeks ago in your subscription feed faster would be great. Right now I have to scroll and scroll down the subscription feed list waiting fir each scroll to load the list of videos before i can move on to get to the last video I watched to start the next video in the timeline. And if i close the app, I have to re-scroll down the long list. Or a feature were it leaves you on the spot that you left off and does not refresh you to the top of the feed only if you choose to refresh. Thanks. Full Review

YTD Video Downloader Free or $29.90/year; YTD works over 50 other video-hosting sites. It will convert files to other formats. Pay the yearly fee and you get more functions, like downloading multiple videos at once and download acceleration, plus no advertising. YTD has Android and iOS apps, but only the Android version actually downloads video. You can't install it from Google Play, though; you have to use the APK file it provides (with instructions). We have more on that below. YTD is the old guard in this area, but it's a little hard to use.

TubeNinjaIn years past we recommended a site called YouTube Downloader (not to be confused with YouTubeDownloader.com, which is not related), but that doesn't matter because YouTube Downloader is now TubeNinja. We also warned readers away after getting a malware warning. TubeNinja says it's only been contacted about that problem once, and on my revisits to update, I didn't get any issues. (It notes that it uses the same ad network as VDYouTube mentioned above, which goes to show that these ad networks and potentially unwanted programs do nothing to help the developers in their relationship with the users.)

A few of these sites try to go the extra distance by making it easy to grab video by letting you change the URL of a vid at YouTube just slightly, so the service takes over. For instance, change the "youtube.com" part to "vdyoutube.com" and the site VDYouTube takes over. (Or you can cut and paste the URL into VDYouTube.)

The new update is super glitchy! Everytime i load up the app the thumbnails don't work it's like watching youtube with no wifi. Please fix it. Its really annoying. Everytime this happens I will get soooo annoyed and smash my tablet. Fix it now. Because of you i almost broke my tablet. Marc G Works good. A feature where you can scroll to videos that were uploaded weeks ago in your subscription feed faster would be great. Right now I have to scroll and scroll down the subscription feed list waiting fir each scroll to load the list of videos before i can move on to get to the last video I watched to start the next video in the timeline. And if i close the app, I have to re-scroll down the long list. Or a feature were it leaves you on the spot that you left off and does not refresh you to the top of the feed only if you choose to refresh. Thanks. Galaxy Macaron Why am I still rating low? Well , you didn't fix the problem! When I tried to type a reply , and I finished writing it and was about to post it , the same freaking thing happened again! It said that there wasn't any network. Seriously , how long do I have to wait? A year? 5 years? 10 years or even 20 years?! Do you even take anybody's suggestions and problems seriously?! Aamir Shaikh Maybe you should drop the function to users so that we can block the video or channel we don't want to see. I currently have recommendations full of unwanted videos which I don't want to see. I loved the previous version of YouTube. It was really good. Just change this update because it's​a forceful update for me because I was happy with the previous version but you guys stopped playing the videos. Really hate it This version sucks If you can't do anything about it just let me know or just block my ID

Don't be timid when it comes to gun safety. If you observe anyone violating any safety precautions, you have an obligation to insist on safer handling practices, such as those on this Web site.

For example, many handgun manufacturers recommend that their handguns always be carried with the hammer down on an empty chamber. This is particularly true for older single-action revolvers, but applies equally to some double-action revolvers or semiautomatic pistols. You should always read and refer to the instruction manual you received with your gun, or if you have misplaced the manual, simply contact the manufacturer for a free copy.

Despite the criticism, officials in Carroll County school district, Md., will be among the most recent to experiment with a gun-avoidance program in grades K-12, starting this fall. Their program is based on both Eddie Eagle and STAR, but has been “tailored to fit our community,” said William Piercy, assistant supervisor of staff development and health for the district.

“The Eddie Eagle GunSafe® program, it doesn’t teach parents about guns. But it does teach parents about gun safety and how to relay that information to their kids correctly in a method that’s really memorable to kids. It’s the gun equivalent of stop, drop and roll. My kids can recite it.” —Lisa L., Mom

Before you load your firearm, open the action and be certain that no ammunition is in the chamber or magazine. Be sure the barrel is clear of any obstruction. Even a small bit of mud, snow, excess lubricating oil or grease in the bore can cause dangerously increased pressures, causing the barrel to bulge or even burst on firing, which can cause injury to the shooter and bystanders. Make it a habit to clean the bore and check for obstructions with a cleaning rod immediately before you shoot it. If the noise or recoil on firing seems weak or doesn't seem quite "right," cease firing immediately and be sure to check that no obstruction or projectile has become lodged in the barrel.

“And this is seven hours into the blackout,” he said, pulling up a new map, cloaked in darkness. “New York City is almost dark. The blackout extended all the way up into Toronto, all the way out to Michigan and Ohio. It covered a huge section of both Canada and the United States. And it was largely due to a software bug in a control room in Ohio.”

All shooters should wear protective shooting glasses and some form of hearing protectors while shooting. Exposure to shooting noise can damage hearing, and adequate vision protection is essential. Shooting glasses guard against twigs, falling shot, clay target chips and the rare ruptured case or firearm malfunction. Wearing eye protection when disassembling and cleaning any gun will also help prevent the possibility of springs, spring tension parts, solvents or other agents from contacting your eyes. There is a wide variety of eye and ear protectors available. No target shooter, plinker or hunter should ever be without them.

Cleaning Regular cleaning is important in order for your gun to operate correctly and safely. Taking proper care of it will also maintain its value and extend its life. Your gun should be cleaned every time that it is used. A gun brought out of prolonged storage should also be cleaned before shooting. Accumulated moisture and dirt, or solidified grease and oil, can prevent the gun from operating properly. Before cleaning your gun, make absolutely sure that it is unloaded. The gun's action should be open during the cleaning process. Also, be sure that no ammunition is present in the cleaning area.

Indoor ranges require good ventilation to remove pollutants such as powder, smoke, and lead dust from the air around the shooters. Indoor and outdoor ranges typically require extensive decontamination when they are decommissioned to remove all traces of lead, copper, and powder residues from the area.

By now, you probably know what guns are and what can happen if they fall into the wrong hands. Even though guns are featured in many television shows, video games, computer games, and movies, it's important to know that real guns are dangerous. Guns are so dangerous that they can hurt or even kill someone you know — including other kids.

5. Use Correct Ammunition You must assume the serious responsibility of using only the correct ammunition for your firearm. Read and heed all warnings, including those that appear in the gun's instruction manual and on the ammunition boxes. Using improper or incorrect ammunition can destroy a gun and cause serious personal injury. It only takes one cartridge of improper caliber or gauge to wreck your gun, and only a second to check each one as you load it. Be absolutely certain that the ammunition you are using matches the specifications that are contained within the gun's instruction manual and the manufacturer's markings on the firearm. Firearms are designed, manufactured and proof tested to standards based upon those of factory loaded ammunition. Handloaded or reloaded ammunition deviating from pressures generated by factory loads or from component recommendations specified in reputable handloading manuals can be dangerous, and can cause severe damage to guns and serious injury to the shooter. Do not use improper reloads or ammunition made of unknown components. Ammunition that has become very wet or has been submerged in water should be discarded in a safe manner. Do not spray oil or solvents on ammunition or place ammunition in excessively lubricated firearms. Poor ignition, unsatisfactory performance or damage to your firearm and harm to yourself or others could result from using such ammunition. Form the habit of examining every cartridge you put into your gun. Never use damaged or substandard ammunition — the money you save is not worth the risk of possible injury or a ruined gun.

Updated at 6:29 p.m. ET Attorney General Jeff Sessions offered an aggressive defense of his conduct surrounding the Russia investigation on Tuesday, but his repeated refusal to answer questions based on a vague reference to executive privilege will likely prolong the congressional effort to understand what preceded former FBI Director James Comey’s controversial ouster last month. The former Alabama senator offered little to rebuff allegations from Democrats that there’s too much smoke around Comey’s firing and the Russia investigation for there to be no fire. Nor did his replies firmly clear up questions about his own contacts with Russian officials. Sessions began by telling lawmakers at the open Senate hearing that any allegations he had colluded with Moscow to undermine the election were an “appalling and detestable lie” and that he would not stand by while others suggested he had committed any wrongdoing. “I recused myself from any investigation into the campaigns for president, but I did not recuse myself from defending my honor against scurrilous and false allegations,” he told senators in a raised tone, as he read his opening statement. “At all times throughout the course of the campaign, the confirmation process, and since becoming attorney general, I have dedicated myself to the highest standards.”

There are several types of locks that serve to make it difficult to discharge a firearm. Locks are considered less effective than keeping firearms stored in a lockable safe since locks are more easily defeated than approved safes. After stealing a locked firearm, a thief can bypass the lock at their leisure. Some manufacturers, such as Taurus, build locks into the firearm itself.

Hunger is about weight gained and lost and gained—at her heaviest Gay weighed 577 pounds. It’s also about so much more: the body she built to shield herself from the contempt of men and her own sense of shame, her complex relationship with parents who took great interest in solving her weight “problem,” and what it has meant for her to be highly visible and yet feel unseen. She describes much of her ongoing struggle with weight and trauma as a result of being gang-raped at the age of 12 in the woods near her home in Nebraska. “People see bodies like mine and make their assumptions. They think they know the why of my body. They do not,” she writes. “I ate and ate and ate in the hopes that if I made myself big, my body would be safe.” The story of Roxane Gay’s body did not begin with this violation of her innocence, but it was the fracture that would come to define her relationship with food, desire, and denial for decades.

“Just wanted to say thank you for your Eddie Eagle GunSafe program. I used the program to instruct students at McKinley Elementary in Toldeo, OH what to do if they found a firearm. Your program really helped me drive the message of safety home with them and your free materials were a Godsend!” —Joe Okos, Toldeo Police Officer

Firearms may also fire unintentionally for several reasons, including dropping the weapon or when a firearm receives any hard mechanical shocks. Similarly, unintentional firing may occur due to faulty triggers, or excessive heat buildup in the chamber which leads to the propellant cooking off. To prevent accidental firing when firearms are dropped or jarred, experts often suggest using modern firearm designs that have safety features such as a transfer bar or a firing pin block which prevent the firing pin from striking the primer unless the trigger is squeezed. For older firearms without these features, experts suggest that they should be carried without a round in the chamber, or with the firing pin resting on an empty chamber in the case of revolvers.

What is White Hat SEO?

So you and your company (yes – even you one-man-armies out there) are brand new to the world of search engine optimization. Maybe your offline business has been suffering due to the economy or a myriad of other factors, however you are a warrior – a trooper – and you will not take no for an answer. You know that the internet is a gold mine, but you have trouble tapping into this unending fountain of visitors. You manage to convince yourself that an online game plan is required. Over the course of a few days, you feverishly search the internet for tools and software that can help your endeavors.

I know all these questions have been addressed in this or that article, like in my discussion with Ken Krogue in his Forbes piece or in the latest letter by Senator John D. Rockefeller to Matt Cutts about SERPs and moving companies. Yet why is there so much confusion about search engine optimization? In an attempt to clear things up, let’s take a basic look at SEO ethics with some terms and definitions.

An SEO technique is considered white hat if it conforms to the search engines' guidelines and involves no deception. As the search engine guidelines are not written as a series of rules or commandments, this is an important distinction to note. White hat SEO is not just about following guidelines, but is about ensuring that the content a search engine indexes and subsequently ranks is the same content a user will see. White hat advice is generally summed up as creating content for users, not for search engines, and then making that content easily accessible to the spiders, rather than attempting to trick the algorithm from its intended purpose. White hat SEO is in many ways similar to web development that promotes accessibility, although the two are not identical.

164. Time your link building campaign properly, but don’t expect to see great results in a jiffy. Google has incorporated delays into the algorithm, because it wants to prevent SEOs from manipulating the search results. Effective, white hat SEO strategies will boost keyword rankings for sure, but it may take 3…6 months until this happens. The good news is that search engine optimization continues to provide the highest ROI for most businesses.

56. All paid and affiliate links should have their “nofollow” attribute set. According to Google, these links don’t transfer PageRank or anchor text, so (in theory) nofollow links won’t provide any SEO benefits to the sites that you are linking to.

154. Use Google Alerts not only to discover link opportunities, but also to learn about new sites that Google considers to be relevant for your keyword(s). Then, study those sites and try to replicate their success.

Oh man, blog commenting is so ridiculous seen from a publisher perspective. You really underestimate a good publisher’s editorial. They will set you and your IP on Spam and you’ll be blacklisted everywhere. Can you really call that “White Hat”? I see this shit everyday, and it’s nothing else than this.

Nice post & my opinion is “Be smart, have patience, and outsource (wisely) your content marketing. It’s time we revamp our game, and be friends with Google, or they can easily spray out our web sites from the SERPs.”

22. Ask Google what are the keywords your website should be ranking for. Go to Google’s Keyword Planner Tool, and then input the URL of your website in the “Your landing page” field, without typing any keyword in the “Your product or service” field.

162. Always prioritize your website pages, giving more attention to the ones that attract visitors who convert to customers. Write more content to support those top performing pages, and try to attract more links to them.

102. Google Analytics is a free website traffic monitoring tool; install it on your website, and then boost the success of the keywords that are already sending visitors to your website by optimizing the existing pages, creating new pages, trying to attract more links to those particular landing pages, etc. If you dislike the idea of having Google monitor your website, StatCounter is a good alternative.

For example, if you’re a plumber in your area, you might create one site that includes your city name plus the word “plumber.” You could also create another site that includes the name of a nearby city plus the word “plumber.” If both of those sites eventually take visitors to your main site, then they’re doorway pages.

Glad you enjoyed it, Brian. That’s a great question. I actually use a Chrome extension called Check My Links. It finds all the broken links on a page VERY quickly. To help automate the process of finding pages and checking for broken links, I’ve also used the (paid) tool at BrokenLinkBuilding.com, which I really like.

138. Use a “related posts” widget or plugin. This will encourage people to read more of your website pages, boosting dwell time and reducing the bounce rate. Jetpack is installed by default with WordPress, and it includes a related posts feature as well. Other popular plugins are YARPP and Contextual Related Posts.

White Hat Search Engine Optimization (White Hat SEO) Definition - What does White Hat Search Engine Optimization (White Hat SEO) mean? White hat search engine optimization (white hat SEO) refers to SEO strategies that aim to build a quality website over the long term by focusing on the website’s audience. White hat SEO techniques include creating unique, high-quality website content and providing links to other relevant content on the site. White hat SEO tactics adhere to all search engine rules and policies, which act to dissuade webmasters from gaming search engines at the expense of the reader's experience. White hat SEO is also known as ethical SEO. Better to Ask Permission? Best Practices for Privacy and Security Techopedia explains White Hat Search Engine Optimization (White Hat SEO) White hat SEO aims to provide search engines with relevant information about the content on the site and present it clearly and honestly. Google, the world’s most popular search engine, uses an ever-evolving algorithm that aims to evaluate a Web page much like a human reader would. This means that Google looks for signs of unique (not copied from another site) content that is relevant to the given search term. Google uses several other measures and factors to determine whether a given site is a reputable and trusted source. Although black hat SEO techniques can fool search engines and increase search engine page rank for the sites that use them, search engines frown on the use of these techniques. Sites that are found to be using black hat SEO may have their page ranks downgraded; their sites may even be removed from search results on a given search engine.

147. Make sure to keep your website clean and free from links that point out to shady websites. Update its CMS and plug-ins regularly and back it up regularly. Often times, this can be done by your hosting provider for a small fee, or it may even be included in a regular hosting package.

In 2007, Google announced a campaign against paid links that transfer PageRank. On June 15, 2009, Google disclosed that they had taken measures to mitigate the effects of PageRank sculpting by use of the nofollow attribute on links. Matt Cutts, a well-known software engineer at Google, announced that Google Bot would no longer treat nofollowed links in the same way, in order to prevent SEO service providers from using nofollow for PageRank sculpting. As a result of this change the usage of nofollow leads to evaporation of pagerank. In order to avoid the above, SEO engineers developed alternative techniques that replace nofollowed tags with obfuscated Javascript and thus permit PageRank sculpting. Additionally several solutions have been suggested that include the usage of iframes, Flash and Javascript.

Search is still in its infancy. They look at page layout and markup, aggregate and localized user engagement metrics, as well as linkage data to determine the relative importance and meaning of a document.

SEO may generate an adequate return on investment. However, search engines are not paid for organic search traffic, their algorithms change, and there are no guarantees of continued referrals. Due to this lack of guarantees and certainty, a business that relies heavily on search engine traffic can suffer major losses if the search engines stop sending visitors. Search engines can change their algorithms, impacting a website's placement, possibly resulting in a serious loss of traffic. According to Google's CEO, Eric Schmidt, in 2010, Google made over 500 algorithm changes – almost 1.5 per day. It is considered wise business practice for website operators to liberate themselves from dependence on search engine traffic.

While this is amusing to read about, it also carries a lot of truth behind it. Time and time again we see newcomers to the SEO community being flamed off the discussion boards for questions deemed misguided, misinformed, black hat, grey hat, upside down hat, you name it. If you haven’t seen this behavior – pay a visit to some of the more well known forums surrounding search engine optimization tips and techniques. The question begs though….

133. Install the Yoast SEO plug-in, and then disable the following archives: – Author archives, for single-author blogs; – Date archives, if you aren’t using them; – Subpages of archives.

Optimization techniques are highly tuned to the dominant search engines in the target market. The search engines' market shares vary from market to market, as does competition. In 2003, Danny Sullivan stated that Google represented about 75% of all searches. In markets outside the United States, Google's share is often larger, and Google remains the dominant search engine worldwide as of 2007. As of 2006, Google had an 85–90% market share in Germany. While there were hundreds of SEO firms in the US at that time, there were only about five in Germany. As of June 2008, the marketshare of Google in the UK was close to 90% according to Hitwise. That market share is achieved in a number of countries.

Remember, Google has a product, the information it serves and if that information is no good then Google has no value. Google wants better websites and gets them from SEO professionals.

So how do you fix a low bounce rate? Begin by making your content much more attractive. Maybe you can rewrite it, add more info to it, add some great images, videos, and so on. Don’t forget to interlink your articles, thus giving your readers the chance to discover more of your great content.

Numerous technological advances have been made between the present day and the 31st century. The ability to keep heads alive in jars was invented by Ron Popeil (who has a guest cameo in "A Big Piece of Garbage"), which has resulted in many historical figures and current celebrities being present, including Groening himself; this became the writers' device to feature and poke fun at contemporary celebrities in the show. Curiously, several of the preserved heads shown are those of people who were already dead well before the advent of this technology; one of the most prominent examples of this anomaly is Earth president Richard Nixon, who died in 1994 and appears in numerous episodes. The heads also appear to be in the age that the individual was most famous and not the older age in which they died. The Internet, while being fully immersive and encompassing all senses — even featuring its own digital world (similar to Tron or The Matrix) — is slow and largely consists of pornography, pop-up ads, and "filthy" (or Filthy Filthy) chat rooms. Some of it is edited to include educational material ostensibly for youth. Television is still a primary form of entertainment. Self-aware robots are a common sight, and are the main cause of global warming thanks to the exhaust from their alcohol-powered systems. The wheel is obsolete (no one but Fry even seems to recognize the design), having been forgotten and replaced by hover cars and a network of large, clear pneumatic transportation tubes.

On August 19, 2010, Comedy Central aired "The Prisoner of Benda", an episode written by Ken Keeler. To support the plot of this episode, Keeler, a PhD mathematician, penned "The Futurama Theorem", also known as "Keeler's theorem", which establishes (with mathematical proof) an algorithm for reversing the results of a particular body swap scenario.

Environmentally, common animals still remain, alongside mutated, cross-bred (sometimes with humans) and extraterrestrial animals. Ironically, spotted owls are often shown to have replaced rats as common household pests. Although rats still exist, sometimes rats act like pigeons, though pigeons still exist, as well. Pine trees, anchovies and poodles have been extinct for 800 years. Earth still suffers the effects of greenhouse gases, although in one episode Leela states that its effects have been counteracted by nuclear winter. In another episode, the effects of global warming have been somewhat mitigated by the dropping of a giant ice cube into the ocean, and later by pushing Earth farther away from the sun, which also extended the year by one week.

The planning for each episode began with a table meeting of writers, who discuss the plot ideas as a group. A single staff writer writes an outline and then produces a script. Once the first draft of a script is finished, the writers and executive producers called in the actors for a table read. After this script reading, the writers collaborated to rewrite the script as a group before sending it to the animation team. At this point the voice recording was also started and the script is out of the writers' hands.

Robots make up the largest "minority". Most robots are self-aware and have been granted freedom and self-determination, but while a few are depicted as wealthy members of the upper class, they are often treated as second-class citizens. Likewise, robot–human relationships (termed "robosexual") are stigmatized, and robot–human marriages are initially depicted as illegal. Sewer mutants are mutated humans who must live in the sewers by law. They are initially depicted as holding urban legend status and regarded as fictional by most members of the public. This was contradicted by later episodes that depict Earth society as having enforced laws regarding mutants. However, since the conclusion of Season Six, mutants have been granted full status as citizens and are therefore granted the same rights to surface use as normal humans.

While the show has survived cancellation before and may do so again, head writer David X. Cohen claims the staff has written Wednesday’s episode to serve as an official series finale. Thus ends a show that, while only a moderate success ratings-wise, boasted a legion of devoted fans as well as some of the smartest, most creative comedy writers in the business.

Time travel can be a tricky thing. One must avoid paradoxes, black holes, and alternate dimensions. But most importantly you must be careful when meeting your own ancestor. Here are a few fictional characters who learned that very lesson.   Marty McFly - Back to the Future The most notorious time traveler on this list is Marty Mcfly. Sent back in time to 1955, Marty inadvertently becomes the romantic love interest of his teenage mother. Awkward. To fix his timeline and make sure he’s even born, Marty must bring his parents together. With a little rock and roll Marty manages to save the day and himself.       Philip J. Fry - Futurma For a television show set in the future, Futurma sure did travel to the past pretty often. Most famously of course was when Fry travels to 1947 and meets his grandparents. Unfortunately for Fry, this means protecting his grandfather from any harm to ensure his future existence. Talk about pressure. Fry succeeds at ensuring his existence, but at a shocking/disgusting cost.       Kindred - Octavia Butler When Dana finds herself transported back in time, the last thing she expects is meeting her ancestors. This time traveling novel takes place mostly on a pre-civil war plantation. Further complications arise when Dana must protect her loathsome plantation owning ancestor in order to assure her birth. This complicated time travel tale deals with race, gender, and slavery. No one said time travel was always pleasant.         Dr. Who - Father's Day When the Ninth Doctor and his companion Rose Tyler travel back in time to the day Rose's father dies, things go awry. By saving her father, Rose creates a paradox that threatens to consume the world. With time running out, the only way to correct the timeline is for Rose's father to die. This time, an adult Rose is with him until the end. Why are our eyes so wet? Is someone cutting onions in here?     Supernatural - In the Beginning The Winchester brothers have faced many a demon foe. But dealing with your teenage parents…well that's a different matter. In this episode, the brothers are sent back in time to witness their family's secret past. This means fighting an evil demon that wants to kill everyone. Lives are lost and questions are left unanswered, but hey, kicking demon butt is a plus!

Comedy Central announced in April 2013 that they would be airing the final episode on September 4, 2013. The producers said that they are exploring options for the future of the series as " have many more stories to tell", but would gauge fan reaction to the news. Groening and Cohen have previously expressed a desire to produce a theatrical film or another direct-to-video film upon conclusion of the series.

The writing staff held three Ph.D.s, seven master's degrees, and cumulatively had more than 50 years at Harvard University. Series writer Patric M. Verrone stated, "we were easily the most overeducated cartoon writers in history".

When Dana finds herself transported back in time, the last thing she expects is meeting her ancestors. This time traveling novel takes place mostly on a pre-civil war plantation. Further complications arise when Dana must protect her loathsome plantation owning ancestor in order to assure her birth. This complicated time travel tale deals with race, gender, and slavery. No one said time travel was always pleasant.

In addition to the main cast, Frank Welker voiced Nibbler and Kath Soucie voiced Cubert and several supporting and minor characters. Like The Simpsons, many episodes of Futurama feature guest voices from a wide range of professions, including actors, entertainers, bands, musicians, and scientists. Many guest-stars voiced supporting characters, although many voiced themselves, usually as their own head preserved in a jar. Recurring guest stars included Dawnn Lewis (as Hermes' wife LaBarbara), Tom Kenny, Dan Castellaneta (as the Robot Devil), Al Gore, and George Takei, among others.

In June 2009, 20th Century Fox announced that Comedy Central had picked up the show for 26 new half-hour episodes that began airing on June 24, 2010. The returning writing crew was smaller than the original crew. It was originally announced that main voice actors West, DiMaggio, and Sagal would return as well, but on July 17, 2009, it was announced that a casting notice was posted to replace the entire cast when 20th Century Fox Television would not meet their salary demands. The situation was later resolved, and the entire original voice-cast returned for the new episodes.

In July 2011, it was reported that the show had been picked up for syndication by both local affiliates and WGN America. Broadcast of old episodes began in September 2011. On September 19, 2011, WGN America began re-running Futurama, and now airs the series weeknights during the overnight hours, and once on Saturday nights. Futurama has since doubled its viewership in syndication.

The Winchester brothers have faced many a demon foe. But dealing with your teenage parents…well that's a different matter. In this episode, the brothers are sent back in time to witness their family's secret past. This means fighting an evil demon that wants to kill everyone. Lives are lost and questions are left unanswered, but hey, kicking demon butt is a plus!

Futurama's setting is a backdrop, and the writers are not above committing continuity errors if they serve to further the gags. For example, while the pilot episode implies that the previous Planet Express crew was killed by a space wasp, the later episode "The Sting" is based on the crew having been killed by space bees instead. The "world of tomorrow" setting is used to highlight and lampoon issues of today and to parody the science fiction genre.

First started in November 2000, Futurama Comics is a comic book series published by Bongo Comics based in the Futurama universe. While originally published only in the US, a UK, German and Australian version of the series is also available. In addition, three issues were published in Norway. Other than a different running order and presentation, the stories are the same in all versions. While the comics focus on the same characters in the Futurama fictional universe, the comics may not be canonical as the events portrayed within them do not necessarily have any effect upon the continuity of the show.

Time travel can be a tricky thing. One must avoid paradoxes, black holes, and alternate dimensions. But most importantly you must be careful when meeting your own ancestor. Here are a few fictional characters who learned that very lesson.

Taxi services are typically provided by automobiles, but in other countries various human-powered vehicles, (such as the rickshaw or pedicab) and animal-powered vehicles (such as the Hansom cab) or even boats (such as water taxies or gondolas) are also used or have been used historically. In Western Europe, Bissau, and to an extent, Australia, it is not uncommon for expensive cars such as Mercedes-Benz to be the taxicab of choice. Often this decision is based upon the perceived reliability of, and warranty offered with these vehicles. These taxi-service vehicles are almost always equipped with four-cylinder turbodiesel engines and relatively low levels of equipment, and are not considered luxury cars. This has changed though in countries, such as Denmark, where tax regulation make it profitable to sell the vehicles after a few years of service, which requires the cars to be well equipped and kept in good condition.

Taxi deregulation proponents claims that immigrants and other poor minorities suffer most from taxi regulation, because the work requires relatively little education. Regulation makes entrance to the taxi business particularly difficult for them. The elderly, disabled, housewives and poor use taxis more often than others.

This report argues that deregulation has led to undesirable results in several American cities. Seattle deregulated taxis in 1980, resulting in a high supply of taxicabs, variable rates, price gouging, short-haul refusals, poor treatment of passengers. As a result, Seattle re-regulated in 1984, reinstating a restriction on taxicab licenses and fare controls. In St. Louis, deregulation produced a 35% rise in taxi fares, and taxicab drivers complained of waiting hours at airports for customers at taxicab stands. Taxicab companies claimed they increased fares in order to make up for lost competition resulting from the increased supply of taxis. As a result, the St. Louis City Council froze new taxicab licenses in 2002.

A taxicab, also known as a taxi or a cab, is a type of vehicle for hire with a driver, used by a single passenger or small group of passengers, often for a non-shared ride. A taxicab conveys passengers between locations of their choice. This differs from other modes of public transport where the pick-up and drop-off locations are determined by the service provider, not by the passenger, although demand responsive transport and share taxis provide a hybrid bus/taxi mode.

The medallion system has been defended by some experts. They argue that the medallion system is similar to a brand-name capital asset and enforces quality of service because quality service results in higher ridership, thus increasing the value of owning the medallion. They argue that issuing new medallions would decrease the medallion value and thus the incentive for the medallion owner to provide quality service or comply with city regulations. They also argue that the medallion may be preferable to alternate systems of regulation (such as fines, required bonds with seizures of interest payments on those bonds for violations, or licensing of all would-be taxis with revocation of that license for violations) because fines are difficult to collect, license revocation may not be a sufficient deterrent for profitable violations such as price cheating, and because using penalties on bond interest payments give regulators an incentive to impose penalties to collect revenue (rather than for legitimate violations). Medallions do not earn interest and thus inappropriate seizures of interest by regulators is not possible.

In Ireland, taxi deregulation decreased waiting times so much that the liberalization became very popular among the public. The number of companies was increased and the quality of cars and drives did not fall. Some have argued that the regulation should be completely abolished, not just cut down.

San Francisco became in 2005 one of the first cities to introduce hybrids for taxi service, with a fleet of 15 Ford Escape Hybrids, and by 2009 the original Escape Hybrids were retired after 300,000 miles per vehicle. In 2007 the city approved the Clean Air Taxi Grant Program in order to encourage cab companies to purchase alternative fuel vehicles, by providing incentives of USD2,000 per new alternative fuel vehicle on a first-come, first-served basis. Out of a total of 1,378 eligible vehicles (wheelchair-accessible taxi-vans are excluded) 788 are alternative fuel vehicles, representing 57% of the San Francisco's taxicab fleet by March 2010. Gasoline-electric hybrids accounted for 657 green taxis and compressed natural gas vehicles for 131.

Chicago is following New York City's lead by proposing a mandate for Chicago's entire fleet of 6,700 taxicabs to become hybrid by 1 January 2014. As of 2008 Chicago's fleet had only 50 hybrid taxicabs. In 2008 Boston mandated that its entire taxi fleet must be converted to hybrids by 2015. Arlington, Virginia also has a small fleet of 85 environmentally friendly hybrid cabs introduced in early 2008. The green taxi expansion is part of a county campaign known as Fresh AIRE, or Arlington Initiative to Reduce Emissions, and included a new all-hybrid taxi company called EnviroCAB, which became the first all-hybrid taxicab fleet in the United States, and the first carbon-negative taxicab company in the world A similar all-hybrid taxicab company, Clean Air Cab, was launched in Phoenix, Arizona in October 2009.

Remorseless plays Football

Recently, Jon Hare of Sensible Software fame spoke about how the Speedball 2 HD redux was framed with what he announced' communal multiplayer' in memory. Massively massive online shenanigans has kind of established the concept a smaller recognise animal amongst gamers, but back in yonder era there was something fairly special about this specific brand of performance. It frequently committed a minuscule area of the bedroom with an Amiga disk-drive chugging away in the background and a d! ckhead brother for fellowship, but there was little else more rapturous than each of you mashing the f* ck out of a zipstick in an attempt to totally humiliate the other on the likes of Sensible Soccer Kick Offor the aforementioned Speedball 2 . The simple-minded pleasure of chafing it in when you attracted off a spectacularly sublime piece of knowledge entwined with the calls of' luck git' or that video games was cheating you two are a constant enjoy. No spikey 12 -year-olds bellowing death-threats down a head-set here; a good old-fashioned affectionate grappling would sort out legal disputes. Within this context Brutal Sports Football was a particular foreground of the communal multiplayer vistum . 

That it was particularly Brutal is perhaps why most former Amiga owners find it a relatively memorable event. A hybrid of rugby and American football in a fantasy define with Viking/ Northmen applying artilleries to trounce the blue inferno out of the opposition, Brutal Sports Football fully fitted into the Blood Bowl zeitgeist of the early nineties. Perforating opposings and stomping on them whilst they are down is joyously promoted alongside the more traditional method of undertaking. Swords and shields make great efforts to represent the defeats even more deadly. The more shatter received the increasing likelihood that a participate will cark it, at which point a truly beautiful stuff happens. With too much sanction taken the player's chief daddies off in a shower of gore, much like a furious champagne cork be prepared to explode. And everyone enjoys a bit of chief. From Ash lopping off his girlfriend's noggin with a blunt shovel in Evil Dead 2 to fighting love singing' we want chief' whenever Al Snow made an image, decapitation is pleasantly cathartic.

Obviously, more activity does exist but in two participate mode scoring was often left on the side-lines so that the constant defeats could reign supreme. With succes possible through outright decimation of your opponent's unit what are you not choose this option? If for some reason you did contend with playing video games like a gimp ... eh, I signify less ruthlessly, then Brutal Sports Football begins to resemble a much simpler plays claim. Played across two-halves of seven minutes each, the aim is simply to tally more goals than the other unit. With two goals set into the brickwork at either resolve of a lovingly styled gladiatorial arena the pellet can be kicked, thrown or run into the opposition point to register a tally. Fairly simple-minded genuinely! Of track, the remorseless tactics available make this more complicated, as do power-ups that they are able alter video games rapidly. Frost impedes, lightning bolts and grenades add to the carnage, but having the pellet bud legs so it can run in the direction of the goals and targets you are attacking is much more cunningly seen. Hares and tortoises rarely run across the battlefield as well, changing participate speeding respectively. 



In additive Brutal Sports Football is a good seeming activity to get ones retinas around. The big cartoonish players are well defined against a lovingly crafted and colourful playing field. The little touches are equally requesting, be it the turf slowly growing more and more tarnished as video games goes on to the corpses persisting littered on the battlefield. You can even pick up the decapitated intelligences and throw them around for chuckles! Although the scrolling does have a dres of chugging ever so-slightly and the flow of it all never genuinely goes beyond a medium pace( it doesn't facetSpeedball 2 's striking cruelty that's for certain ), sprites are well-animated and perfect for the job in hand. The show all around is lovingly designed and music and in-game consequences are as there is a requirement to. From a communal multiplayer attitude, Brutal Sports Football has most of its sh! t in all the right places.

Shame then that when such a theory is removed the game begins to lavish as a single participate entity. The first headache to strike one's mono-brow is the lack of magnitude available. Sure it has a league method to play-through, but this is simply a rinse and reproduce exercising. Succes and decapitations offer a variable amount of money at the end of each coincide yet this can only be spent on preserving your force of players health, which does include reattaching discombobulated intelligences. There are no gives, sciences upgrades, or bugger everything else to do as a administration attempt in video games. It are quite performance, retrieve, performance, retrieve and play video games until the end of daytimes. Simple and straightforward yes, but pitted against peers the appeal of Brutal Sports Footballstarts to dwindle. 

Unfortunately the extent of the single participate objection is too a problem. Battling through four discords of four squads( six competitions per split) does offer a sensing of longevity, and this is helped along by the unique play-styles of the lizardmen and rhino squads( not available in the affable gaming mode) on account that the game is doing something slightly different. Alas, it's a bit of a pretense. It doesn't take long to work out these creature-based squads- mashing them into a vicious pulp frequently does the gimmick- and whilst the AI does scale as you are promoted through the league method this starts from a fairly low baseline. It's not uncommon to hand out 12-0 thrashings in season 1 and sure, the score-lines do narrow as the A.I. becomes less of a three-legged pony, but not nearly enough to bother a proficient participate too much.

Tellingly, there is no Super Nashwan here to forever p* ss in your cereals; instead infuriatingly difficult opposings shall be substituted for power-ups that are far too over-powered. Pick up the bunny and you are able to virtually lead the length of the field and tally with barely anyone getting close to making a attack. Likewise, plunging the suspension and lightning power-ups at the right time means you can canter over the line for another tally with little difficulty at all. And exceedingly gradually Brutal Sports Football goes ever so slightly tedious because the challenge just is not there. This is not helped by the seven minutes per half. An option to change the duration of a coincide would have been accepted, but all it does here is allow a game that you triumphed some five minutes ago to drag out until the end of heaven. Even the cathartic head-popping gradually losses its goofy request, which probably does everything that needs to be said about the single participate crusade. 

Missing the magnitude and objection of its peers pretty much demotes Brutal Sports Football to a game of two-halves( and ridiculous football cliches, undoubtedly ). On the one side we have a essential single participate mode that goes dull all too quickly; on the other a gloriously entertaining two-player event "thats appropriate" up there with the pick of other communal multiplayer designations. It does represent me pine for my d* ckhead brother- he'll be glad to know that he is actually helpful for something- for the defeats "thats been" handed out at the descended side of my mad gaming sciences, but dang is that single-player mode disappointing. Eventually, loved it while it lasts but stick withSpeedball 2 Sensible Soccer or Kick Off whenever you get that retro itch.

G MATT McQUAID

6-4 sophomore

Izzo love McQuaid's defensive persistence and offensive versatility at the patrol recognise, calling him a" junkyard dog ." His three-point shooting touch made an immediate splash as a newcomer, draining three of them in MSU's win over Kansas and working his direction soon into the playing group. Injuries beginning in December, and McQuaid played the rest of his newcomer season with a double plays hernia that he had operated on in June and missed much of the summer months. Izzo expects him to play a crucial role between the 2 and 3 recognises, and also at point patrol in a pinch.

MSU clues two basketball recruits, still attempting Gary Trent Jr.

F MILES BRIDGE

6-7 freshman

Perhaps Izzo's most talented incoming actor ever put on a 33 -point, eight-rebound, four-block, three-assist achievement in his show introduction against Northwood. A pogo-stick leaper at both sides of the floor, Bridges fascinated during the two show plays with an display of offensive and defensive gamblings, depicting a dexterou shooting touch from three-point series and hammering dwelling dunks with equal naturalnes. Izzo has been affected with Bridges' unselfish nature and pure ability, planning to give him chances to run the offense at the point or on the break with better-than-advertised ball-handling and decision-making ability.

Windsor: Miles Bridges building strong foundation

F KENNY GOIN

6-6 sophomore

With the hurts to Ben Carter and Gavin Schilling, former walk-on Goins becomes an even more integral component to the Spartans' frontcourt. A batch of that comes from his ability to defend and rebound, but he also has shown a ingenuity for timely berth stages with a decent mid-range shot from the shoulder and baseline. A important issue will be keeping Goins health after standing two knee hurts last-place season and having a minor knee procedure in June that cost him much of the summer months development day. MSU necessity Goins to play at least 20 instants a game eventually.

Key RESERVES

SG JOSHUA LANGFORD

6-5 freshman

Like Bridges, Langford is a McDonald's All-America who can play three positions offensively and represent four. Izzo already has called him the Spartan' best advocate -- high praise from the instruct, let alone for a newcomer. A hamstring injury preserved Langford from obligating his introduction during show plays, and MSU necessity him to be health to help the security jell around him. Langford can make jumpers, make passes, direct traffic and hit from outside. He can rebound well on both the offensive and defensive glass, a requirement for any patrol who plays for Izzo.

PF/ C NICK WARD

6-8 freshman

The least-heralded of the incoming freshmen intent up becoming the most valuable with hurts to fellow berth actors Schilling and Carter. That will leave Ward as a potential 20 -minutes-a-game candidate as he continues to improve his defense and physical conditioning. Ward is a physical large-hearted male with a soft offensive handle and speedy hoofs around the basket, producing Izzo to liken him to a" good, good man's Zach Randolph ." Another less talked-about part of Ward's game is his interior berth lead ability, as well as his glue-like handwritings to catch berth entry passes.

Couch: MSU's lack of width could curtail compelling season

PG CASSIUS WINSTON

6-0 freshman

Izzo experimented with dual point patrol lineups during show plays, with freshman Winston and junior Nairn presenting differing styles with the projectile. The predominating Michigan's Mr. Basketball can attack the basket from the point, but he has impressed his new instruct with a better-than-expected outside shot that saves defenses honest. Winston possesses superb tribunal image and communication skills, the lead ability to get the ball to his berth actors and others on the transgres, and a stop-and-start, herky-jerky savvy with the ball that will have him pushing for a starting task by the end of the season.

SG ALVIN ELLI

6-4 senior

Ellis went from a tentative crap-shooter with an inability to finish off drives at the boundary to a self-confident deep menace and steady-going presence by the end of last-place season. The Chicago native will be counted on to provide leadership and more three-point shooting with the departures of Valentine and Bryn Forbes. During last-place season's Big Ten Tournament, Ellis averaged more than 9 instants video games, cleared 3 of 6 threes, grabbed five backlashes and dished out three assists.

SF KYLE AHREN

6-5 sophomore

After breaking his leg and missing much of his junior year of high school, Ahrens opted to not redshirt last-place season for MSU and played sparingly. With the hurts to Schilling and Carter, Izzo has moved Ahrens into more of a pick-and-pop persona at the 4 thanks to his somewhat surprising athletic they are able to criticize off the backstage and his steady outside shot. Izzo will need Ahrens to provide solid instants off the bench sooner than expected.

SF MATT VAN DYK

6-5 senior

The athletic former junior college actor and walk-on earned a scholarship before the season, following two seasons as a prized scout team player. The Imlay City native realise some instants last-place season in blowout wins with its capability to drive to the basket and finish at the boundary with a deceptively speedy horizontal leap. He'll is a need for that this year perhaps in more significant rival with the injures at forward.

C GAVIN SCHILLING Basketballiscool 

6-9 senior

Last year, "its been" turf toe which ended Schilling's junior season. This die, it's a significant knee harm that has him on crutches. Izzo said the best-case situation is for the Spartan' tallest and most experienced berth actor to come back during Big Ten comedy. When health, Schilling owns a strong upper body, long wingspan, solid stalk and speedy hoofs to provide a defensive presence in the paint. But the biggest theme will be at what level Schilling can contribute if and when he does return.

PF BEN CARTER

6-9 fifth-year senior

Like Schilling, Carter suffered a preseason harm that has him on crutches after a second knee surgery in less than a year. The graduate convey from UNLV was expected to help fill the void left when Deyonta Davis left for the NBA. Should he render this season, Izzo hopes to get a unfold 4 who enjoys the dirty work of playing gritty security, taking charges and giving hard screens.
