If something seems novel and revolutionary to us, it is only because our perspective
is narrow, and we cannot see how the pattern repeats itself. Nothing has value simply
by virtue of being “new”.

Music and Video / Rihanna is the richest female musician in the world
« on: June 12, 2019, 05:11:57 PM »
Rihanna now has a net worth of $600 million, making her the world's wealthiest female musician.

She's made millions from music but most of her money comes from brand partnerships and her Fenty Beauty brand.

Rihanna most recently launched Fenty, a luxury fashion house with LVMH.


 Rihanna is officially the wealthiest female musician in the world. With a fortune of $600 million, she's richer than Madonna, Celine Dion, and even Beyoncé. According to her label, Roc Nation, she has sold more than 60 million albums and 215 million digital tracks, making her the second-best-selling digital artist of all time. But all that wealth didn't just come from her music.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Oracle Arena started to empty earlier than usual.

As a surprising number of Raptors fans stuck around to celebrate their team being one win away from the franchise's first championship, the Warriors faithful left the building with the knowledge that this could have been Golden State's final game in its home of 48 years. Considering the ramifications, it was telling.

The Warriors' Game 3 loss brought about defiance. Draymond Green talked about winning three games in a row as if it was business as usual. (He said there were "fun times ahead.") The thought of losing two consecutive playoff games at Oracle was laughable. After Friday night's 105-92 loss to the Raptors, though, laughter had no chance of entering the fray.

The postgame comments came as expected. Taking it "one game at a time" was mentioned more than once. But there was a somberness that was palpable, and as the Warriors head back to Toronto down 3-1, you can't help but think this dynasty is coming to an end.

Game 4 had all the makings of a Golden State victory. At home in a soon-to-be vacant arena, key players returning, a history of overcoming 2-1 deficits - it made too much sense. But even the greatest of champions can't overcome so many obstacles.

During an event at James Bond author Ian Fleming's GoldenEye villa in Jamaica, the cast and filming locations for "Bond 25" were confirmed. The movie will take audiences to London, Italy, and more. Daniel Craig's Bond will be joined by returning faces such as Naomie Harris' Moneypenny and Ben Whishaw's Q, and a recent Oscar winner was revealed to be the movie's villain.

"Bond 25" has had a rough journey to this point, though. The movie was pushed back from its original release date this November to next spring after director Danny Boyle exited the project over creative differences. Now, "Killing Eve" creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge has joined to polish the script.

It's unknown when the movie's title will be revealed, but for now, here is everything we know about "Bond 25."

Spying the Internet / 10 Internet Terms Everyone Has To Know
« on: June 06, 2019, 08:01:39 PM »
With the rise of the Internet, terms like encryption, cloud computing, and URL have become household words, but we often lack the in-depth understanding of these words, no matter how important and widespread they may be. And it’s not our fault either, as most of us weren’t taught any of this in school. At the same time, we use the Internet to connect with others, to make purchases and even to manage our banking or healthcare, and not understanding Internet jargon may leave us helpless or, in the worst case scenario, it can even expose us to hackers and identity theft.

If this is about you and you think you’re missing some knowledge about Internet lingo, on this list you will find 10 essential Internet terms that every beginner should understand.

Warriors beat Raptors 109-104 to even NBA Finals
By BRIAN MAHONEY | AP Basketball Writer

Jun. 3, 2019 12:23 AM ET

TORONTO (AP) The Golden State Warriors relied on a champion's heart to overcome their weary bodies.

Klay Thompson scored 25 points before leaving with a hamstring injury, Stephen Curry had 23 and the Warriors ran off the first 18 points of the second half on the way to a 109-104 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night that tied the NBA Finals at one game apiece.

With Kevin Durant already out and Thompson eventually joining him in the fourth quarter, the Warriors don't feel great - but they would've felt a whole lot worse flying home in a 2-0 hole.

''I think that when you get to this stage, our DNA shows up,'' Curry said.

Andre Iguodala, himself slow to get up after a hard fall in the first half, made the clinching 3-pointer with 5.9 seconds left after the Raptors scored 10 straight points to cut it to 106-104.

Kawhi Leonard had 34 points and 14 rebounds for the Raptors. They had won five straight since falling behind 2-0 in the Eastern Conference finals.

Curry appeared to be laboring as well in the first half, returning to the locker room in the midst of six straight misses to start the game.

But the Warriors cobbled together a good enough finish to the second quarter to keep it close, then stormed out of the locker room with one of their vintage third-quarter charges that have been so frequent during their run to five straight NBA Finals.

''Third quarter we didn't play well enough. We missed too many shots,'' Raptors guard Kyle Lowry said. ''They got out in transition and got a little confidence going. We lost the game there.''

DeMarcus Cousins was inserted into the starting lineup and delivered 11 points, 10 rebounds and six assists, and Draymond Green had 17 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists - missing by one assist a fourth straight triple-double.

The series moves to their Oracle Arena for Games 3 and 4, with the first NBA Finals to be played outside the U.S. assured of returning to Canada for Game 5.

The Warriors will hope to have enough healthy bodies to get through it. Thompson landed awkwardly after a 3-point attempt early in the fourth quarter and limped off soon after, with backup center Kevon Looney already missing the second half with a chest or shoulder injury.

And Golden State is still without Durant, who missed his seventh straight game with a strained right calf but hopes to return during the series.

For now, they got key contributions from Quinn Cook, who hit three 3-pointers, and veteran center Andrew Bogut, who wasn't even part of the roster most of the season but came off the bench for three baskets.

''It was a great win. We got to go home and protect our home floor and we'll see about all the injuries,'' coach Steve Kerr said. ''But I'm very proud of our team and in particular all the guys off the bench.''

Kerr said Thompson told him that he thought his injury was minor and he'd be fine, but added that ''Klay could be half dead and he would say he would be fine.'' Kerr was unsure the nature of Looney's injury.

Fred VanVleet scored 17 points for the Raptors, who had red T-shirts with their slogan ''We The North'' hanging on seats around the arena.

The Warriors sure were seeing red, especially Curry, during a mostly miserable first half when they missed 20 of their first 28 shots.

He hung his head and didn't even attempt to run back when VanVleet stole the ball from him and made a layup to give Toronto an 11-point lead with a little more than 2 minutes remaining in the half.

But Curry made two free throws for the final points of the half to cut it to 59-54, then the Warriors came back and pitched a shutout until nearly the midpoint of the third quarter during a series-changing - perhaps season-changing - swing.

Iguodala had five quick points including a 3-pointer that moved Golden State into the lead at 61-59. The surge continued with three straight baskets from Thompson and three more from Green, whose last one capped the 18-0 run that Elias said was the longest to start a half in NBA Finals history and made it 72-59 before Toronto finally got on the board with a 3-pointer with VanVleet with 6:20 remaining in the period.

''They moved the ball really well and were running freely,'' Raptors center Marc Gasol said. ''Once they run freely, everything opens up for them.''

The Warriors had won 12 straight Game 1s and this was their first time playing from behind in the finals since they were down 2-1 to Cleveland in 2015. They showed no signs of concern during the off days, and Thompson suggested part of the problem during their 118-109 loss Thursday was rust after they had nine days off in between series.

Their bigger problem early in Game 2 was the defense of the Raptors. But Toronto - which had a 23-0 advantage in second-chance points - missed a chance to take a comfortable lead into the half and couldn't overcome its 37 percent shooting, with Pascal Siakam going 5 for 18 for 12 points after scoring 32 in the opener.

TIP-INS

Warriors: Curry had his streak of 30-point games snapped at six. Wilt Chamberlain and Rick Barry share the Warriors' postseason record with seven straight. ... Kerr earned his 76th postseason victory, moving past Chuck Daly and Don Nelson.

Raptors: Siakam missed his first three shots, as many as he missed in Game 1 while going 14 for 17. ... OG Anunoby was active for the first time in the playoffs after having an emergency appendectomy April 11, but didn't play.

FAMOUS FAN

President Barack Obama sat next to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver across the court from the Toronto bench, getting a loud ovation and "MVP! MVP!" chants when shown on the overhead video screen and introduced in the second quarter.

Lifestyle, Culture and Arts / A Beautiful Story About True Love
« on: May 28, 2019, 08:20:14 AM »
"I am a doctor working at a little clinic. At about 8:15 am on a Tuesday morning, an old man in his 80's walked into my clinic to remove some stitches he received a few days before.

It was a very busy morning, and I asked him to please sit and wait. He told me he was in a rush, as he had a very important engagement at 9am he couldn't miss.  As he sat there,  I couldn't help noticing that he kept checking his watch. I decided to treat him since the doctor in charge was extremely busy, and I knew it would take at least an hour until he could see him.
 
I took off his bandages and saw that the wound was healing nicely. While I was gently pulling out the stitches, I asked him where he was off to that was more important than taking out stitches.  Was it also with a doctor?

"No," said the old man, "not a doctor. I am going to have breakfast with my wife, who is in the hospital."
"Why was she hospitalized, if I may ask?"
"She's been there for a few years now," he answered. "she has Alzheimer's and needs constant care."
As I finished taking out the stitches, I asked the man if his wife would be worried if he were late to their breakfast.
"No," he said quietly, "and she never will. She hasn't recognized me in over five years."
 
I was astounded by this and just had to ask: "And you go to her every morning although she doesn't know who you are?"
The man smiled, put his hand on mine and said: "She may not know who I am, but I know who she is, and I remember for both of us."  And he shook my hand, thanked me and left me standing there, my body shaking with sudden emotion.

"This," I said to myself, "this is what true love is all about. This is what I want for myself."
And I vowed, at that moment, to find such love.
