On these lists you’ll find all the old standbys but probably some surprises, too. Kyle Lowry’s performance last year put him the 97th percentile, well within the mark we’d expect to find for the best player on a championship-caliber team. The Toronto Raptors team around him just wasn’t up to that level.You’ll also notice that four members of the San Antonio Spurs appear on these lists, while just one member of the Miami Heat does: LeBron James. The Heat were something of an outlier last season as Dwyane Wade, the team’s second-best player, had an SPM that placed him in the 82nd percentile, more than a standard deviation less than the average second-best player on finals teams. In fact the average SPM percentile rank of the Heat’s three best players last season — James, Wade and Mario Chalmers — was just 82. On only six of the 40 finals teams in this sample did the three players have a lower average mark. By comparison, the average SPM percentile rank of the Spurs’ three best players last season was 92nd.Which brings us to the 2004 Pistons, the championship team often acknowledged as lacking a transcendent star. But this perception is a misconception. No players on the team were dominant individual scorers, sure, but the Pistons’ best players performed at levels of elite stardom. Their three best players that season — Ben Wallace, Rasheed Wallace and Chauncey Billups — had SPM marks that placed them in the 95th, 95th and 92nd percentiles, respectively. In fact, the average of the trio’s SPM percentiles that season ranks higher than that of all but five of the 40 teams in this sample. The 2004 Pistons may have been starless in terms of the subjective ways we define the term, but by objective measures of performance, they had as much star power as nearly any championship-caliber team of the last 20 years.This should bring hope to teams like the Warriors, Grizzlies, Raptors and Wizards. We may not see Andrew Bogut, Mike Conley, Marc Gasol, Kyle Lowry or John Wall as the kind of stars who can help lead a team to the finals. But each has been at or near that level of production in the past. If the teams around them can provide the necessary support, the fact that they aren’t dominating scorers or sneaker-selling heroes won’t stop them from winning championships. You need stars to win championships. It’s one of the oldest pieces of NBA conventional wisdom, and every year it’s validated as another star leads his team to the title. So far this year the Golden State Warriors, Memphis Grizzlies, Toronto Raptors and Washington Wizards may hold some of the top spots in each conference while seemingly lacking the celestial requirements for championship contention. But at some point they’ll be overtaken by the Cleveland Cavaliers, Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets, San Antonio Spurs or Los Angeles Clippers.It’s an idea that gains more credence every time an NBA analyst trots it out. Bill Simmons asks, “Can you win an NBA Championship if Carmelo Anthony is your best player?” Jeff Caplan wonders if a team “lacking a legit superstar” like the Grizzlies or the Indiana Pacers can really win it all. NBA.com roundtables lead off with questions like, “Can a team win it all nowadays without an MVP-type superstar?” The starless 2004 Detroit Pistons are often acknowledged as the exception that proves the rule.What we do know for sure is that it takes an elite team performance to win a championship, and elite teams are usually (but not always) driven by elite players. The problem is that there is no objective definition of what makes somebody a suitable enough star to win championships. Dwyane Wade didn’t have the experience to lead his team to a title … until he did just that in the 2006 NBA Finals. After his playoff struggles in 2006 and 2007, Dirk Nowitzki clearly couldn’t help his team break through … until he did in the 2011 finals. Often we don’t recognize the players who meet our imagined championship threshold until the second before they cross it.But the data — the data holds some answers. We can use it to look at the rosters of teams that made the finals and better understand just how good their best players were. Using Statistical Plus-Minus — an estimated measure of a player’s value in points per 100 possessions relative to the league average — I looked at where each finals player ranked, relative to the league, in the season his team made the finals.The table at left covers the past 20 seasons and shows the average, minimum and maximum SPM percentile for the first, second and third-best players on finals teams.That bottom row is not the fabled 2004 Pistons. It’s the 1999 New York Knicks, who made their way to the finals as an eight seed during the lockout-shortened season. Only two other finals teams over the past 20 seasons had their best player rank below the 90th percentile in SPM — the 2010 Boston Celtics and the 2000 Indiana Pacers.So the best teams are indeed almost always driven by the best players. But who are those players? Let’s use last season as an example. The table below shows SPM percentile ranks from 2013-14. The table is color-coded, separating the players into two groups: those who are within one standard deviation of the average for the best players on NBA Finals teams for the 1994-95 through 2013-14 seasons, and those who just missed the cut.1Percentile ranks are for players who played at least 115 minutes, a pool of about 200 players per season.
A graph showing how paper books beat e-readers for bonding The researchers assessed seven to nine-year-old children and their mothers sharing a story book in each of four conditions: mother or child as reader, paper or tablet screen as medium.They discovered that whilst the medium did not affect information retention, interaction and warmth was lower for screen than for paper and dropped over time for screens, particularly when children rather than mothers took the role of reader.Children also showed higher story engagement with paper than with screen, and there was evidence that mothers made more story-relevant comments with paper books.Additionally, the team found evidence that use was linked to different positioning for mother and child; on the whole, child readers held and used tablets in ways more typical of individual use, so mothers had to ‘shoulder-surf’ the screen.Conversely, mothers read paper books in ways that supported shared visual attention, enabling the child to adopt a range of curled-up postures.The research was published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology.

Reading with an e-reader is more distracting and changes the posture for parent and child Reading bedtime stories from paper books rather than kindles can help parents bond with their children far more than using an e-reader or tablet, researchers have found.Since e-readers were invented there have been arguments about whether the technology distorted the experience, or enjoyment, of reading.Now the University of Sussex has discovered that children feel less of a physical and emotional connection to their parents if they are read bedtime stories from an electronic device.The researchers believe that tablets can be distracting for youngsters, because they know they could be watching a film or playing a game on them instead of reading. It also changes the posture, allowing for less cuddling.Dr Nicola Yuill, who led the study, said: “A paper book tends to have a single purpose, while an e-book is often only one app on a highly multi-functional device that can also be used to book tickets, play games, work on spreadsheets, and watch films.“And because digital devices are so often used in solo situations, reading books on digital devices moves from a potentially shared activity to a more individual, private activity.“Our results demonstrate that the use of digital technology and the activity of reading seemed to exist in two somewhat separate spheres.”
MANY PEOPLE ARE unaware of the amount of food they waste. In fact, 30% of the food we buy ends up in the bin, costing the average household around €700.Nobody wants to waste food, but often our busy lives and changing plans mean that food bought with good intentions, doesn’t get eaten. We buy too much, don’t store it correctly, or we don’t eat it on time.Some of the most common types of food we throw away include bread, dairy products, fruit and vegetables.We waste 20% of bread and bakery products; bananas, apples and potatoes are the fruit and veg we waste the most and 10% of yoghurts, milk & dairy are wasted. Making sure to correctly store and prepare our food means that when life gets in the way, our food can get another chance.BreadBread is best stored in a bread bin or paper bag (not plastic) at room temperature. This allows for air circulation but prevents it from drying out too fast.Even though smaller loaves are more expensive per slice, they are better value if much of the large loaf goes uneaten. An alternative is to freeze half a large loaf straight after purchasing.Stale baguettes can be rejuvenated by slightly wetting their surface and warming in the oven. Old, dried bread can be turned into breadcrumbs and stored in the freezer. Breadcrumbs have many uses including coatings for baked chicken or fish, and binding for burgers and fishcakes.Fruit, veg and potatoes Keep bananas at room temperature, without a plastic bag, until they are ripe. Bananas produce ethylene gas which causes other fruits to ripen faster. Unless you actually want to ripen other fruit, store bananas separately.Store potatoes in a cool, dark and dry place. Plastic bags encourage condensation, which in turn promotes the development of rot. To avoid this, remove potatoes from their bag as soon as you get them home. A cloth potato sack in a dark cupboard is perfect. Potatoes with visible damage such as cuts and bruises will be fine to eat but will not store as long and should therefore be used first. Avoid storing spuds in the fridge.Small quantities of apple can be used up in soups, salads, coleslaw or bread. Old or damaged apples are still great stewed, perfect for baking or adding to porridge. Stewed apples can be frozen.DairyMilk should always be stored in the fridge. If storing for more than a couple of days, avoid putting it in the door. The door is the warmest part of the fridge and experiences the most temperature fluctuations. Milk should be returned to the fridge as soon as possible.There are loads of recipes requiring milk so if you find yourself with milk to spare that might otherwise go off, use it up in rice pudding, white sauce, or custard. Alternatively, make pancakes which you can also freeze.The EPA’s Stop Food Waste programme has developed an A – Z of Foods, a handy resource that provides ingredient specific tips to make the most of these common food items that often go to waste.

Stay on target Persona 5’s stylish opening animation is absolutely gorgeous, with its red and black motif, perfectly choreographed character movements, and other bits that make it one of the most memorable introductions to a game you’ve probably ever seen. Its jazzy theme song, attractive text, and other awesome elements make it modern and retro at the same time, and you really can’t say enough good things about it. So naturally, that means it’s controversial, at least for Korean gamers who noticed something particular about protagonist Ryuji’s shoes.It appears that there’s a small red dot on Ryuji’s white sneakers that appears to resemble the Japanese flag, the one generally associated with the Imperial Army of the World War II era, and this caused a bit of an uproar. Korean internet denizens noticed the shoes and were understandably upset with the sneakers, given the relationship between Japan and Korea. It’s not atypical to see both countries sharing pop culture like music, movies, and video games, but Korean gamers weren’t so pleased to find this Japanese flag in the game.Sony Interactive Entertainment Korea took down the original video that depicted Ryuji’s sneakers with what looked like the Japanese flag and replaced it with one where Ryuji simply has plain white shoes with red lines on the bottom. Sony Interactive Entertainment Korea has since released a statement about the imagery, noting that the video in question that caused the uproar wasn’t actually from the Korean version of the game, and instead the version shown with Ryuji’s white shoes was actually the video taken from the Korean version of Persona 5.Hopefully, after this snafu that means all is well, but we’ll have to wait and see. Persona 5 is an excellent game, and there really wasn’t any reason to not include plain white sneakers to start with.

A bill to repeal the death penalty in Washington succumbed Friday to the Legislature’s first key cutoff deadline. But a measure to strengthen regulations on trains carrying crude oil continues to gain momentum.While lawmakers are in the midst of negotiating proposals to solve the state’s biggest problem — funding the state’s public schools — they are also championing their own personal priorities in Olympia.More than 2,000 measures were proposed in the House and Senate this session. Friday’s cutoff for policy bills reduces the volume of measures lawmakers are considering.Here’s a look at some of the local priorities the Southwest delegation has been working on recently:• Dueling bridge bills: Two different measures aimed at easing congestion over the Interstate 5 bridge are still alive. The majority of the local delegation signed on to Senate Bill 5806, to declare replacing the I-5 bridge a project of statewide significance, with the goal of expediting the permitting and construction process. But House Republicans Liz Pike of Camas and Vicki Kraft of Vancouver are pushing House Bill 1222. That bill would create a work group to look at new corridors and bridges, and ensure the focus isn’t only on replacing the Interstate 5 Bridge. Pike has been a proponent of building a third bridge elsewhere in the county. Friday’s cutoff doesn’t affect these two measures because bills in Transportation and the Senate Ways and Means committees have a longer deadline.• Sen. Ann Rivers, R-La Center, fulfilled a dream of Bigfoot fanatics everywhere this week when she introduced a measure to declare the creature the state’s official cryptid, meaning an animal that’s not been proven to exist. The measure won’t become law this year, but Rivers and the Sasquatch bill will be back next session. Meanwhile, Rivers’ measure to strengthen laws and penalties on distracted drivers, Senate Bill 5289, remains alive in the Transportation Committee. She’s also promoting Senate Bill 5557, a measure to ensure nonprofit gun clubs continue to enjoy a clay target tax exemption, and Senate Bill 5034 to simplify reporting requirements for some special purpose districts, such as a diking district. The goal of this measure is to encourage more people to stay engaged on local, smaller boards.
By Amie Sanneh“If you patronise local poultry, you are also supporting Gambian farmers and fisher folks,” said Momodou Mass Jobe, the Technical Director of Cenelaa Feeds Company Limited.He said this in an interview at his outlet in Busumbala on Monday, 23 June 2014.Mr. Jobe called on Gambians to patronise the locally produced chicken in the local market. He said when one is buying something; there should be some form of nationalism. He reminded the consumers that anytime one buys imported chicken, the person is helping a farmer in Brazil or somewhere else but that if you buy locally produced ones, you are not only helping the chicken farmers in the country, but also those who produce corn, groundnuts and fish which are the basic ingredients of chicken feed as well as those who are employed by the poultry farm.“So these are the things we should be considering and not just reduce it to say this is cheaper. How much is it costing us and what are we doing to address it? We are working on trying to improve on our cost of production, but then you cannot just go to the corn farmer and say give me your corn for free or sell me your corn at a price that is ridiculous, because the corn farmer also needs his profit, so every-time the price of corn increases, the price of chicken also increases and these are the realities,” he remarked.Mr. Jobe said with every 1500 chicken raised in this country, one Gambian is directly employed in the production of that chicken and there is additional three or four Gambians who in their various ways are contributing towards that. “So we should look at the issue of local chicken and chicken products as an issue of empowering our people in terms of employment,” he noted.He said the price of imported chicken sold here is one third the price they sell it in Europe.Mr. Jobe described poultry as a value chain. He said one of the key components of the chicken business is corn and if corn reduces that can help with the cost of chicken. He therefore called on the government to help the local farmer to grow more corn and then help the poultry farmers in terms of infrastructure development such as land, soft loans, etc.At the moment they have over 20, 000 chickens which he described as small, adding what they want is to go beyond this.The Technical Director of Cenelaa Feeds Company Limited told Foroyaa that they produce to serve the market, but the problem is people’s ability to buy as the 100, 000 male chickens they produce a month is costing over a million Dalasi. He said people are willing to buy the local chicken, but they do not have the ability to do so and they normally compare the cost of local chicken with the imported one which is cheaper.On why the imported chicken is cheaper than the locally produced one, Jobe said he does not exactly know why, but thinks that it has to do with the “dumping of chicken legs.” He said normally chicken should be kept for seven days after the day it has been slaughtered and after which it should be discarded.Explaining why he is into the business of poultry, Jobe noted that he has passion for animals and one of which is chicken. He said he has been in the business for five years. He explained that his poultry farm raise chickens and day old chicks and that they feed, medicate and take care of them to grow into matured birds. He said they sell both life and dressed chicken.On how the business contributes to the economy of the country, Jobe stressed that poultry and poultry products significantly contribute to the development of the economy not only financially but in terms of job creation and nutrition sufficiency, noting that it’s the quickest way to create protein.Highlighting the challenges, he said they are faced with numerous hurdles some of which are being surmounted gradually. Previously, he said, they have a problem of getting a day old chicks which has now been addressed and that now they can produce 100, 000 day old chicks per month. He also noted the problem of feed as there are presently two feed mills in the market.The other challenge noted by Jobe is the cost of infrastructure.On a concluding note, Jobe indicated his willingness to provide assistance to anyone who intends to set up a poultry farm, adding that there is need for the venture to be encouraged for people to invest in it. ]]>
Cesare Prandelli claims Genoa were clearly undone by poor refereeing decisions in their narrow 3-2 defeat to AS RomaPrandelli was furious after the game but equally blamed his side for not taking advantage of Roma’s situation.“It’s strange because from the bench the push was really clear. It was obvious. We feel somewhat defrauded. I don’t understand why it wasn’t viewed again on VAR,” the Coach told Football Italia after a 3-2 defeat.“We knew that Roma were in a difficult situation psychologically and wanted to start strong to take advantage of that.Karsdorp reveals he had too much stress at Roma Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The Dutch defender has been with the Gialorrossi since 2017, but he has not enjoyed his time in the Italian Lega Serie A.“Football is a fast-paced sport and it is essential to always be concentrated, as the smallest errors can make a big difference, especially inside the penalty area and on set plays.“We had a lot of scoring opportunities and attacking moves, but our final ball wasn’t always correct. I think we lost the game five seconds from half-time, as we were caught in possession, they went on the counter and equalised.“We knew Roma were playing a new system and they hadn’t practiced it much, so inevitably their preventative marking and defensive movements weren’t well-oiled and we tried to take advantage.”
KUSI Newsroom Small brush fire in Lemon Grove causes trolley shutdown KUSI Newsroom, Categories: Local San Diego News, Traffic & Accidents FacebookTwitter LEMON GROVE (KUSI) — Flames in Lemon Grove Sunday damaged power lines, trolley rail ties, a fence and the eaves of some houses, according to Heartland Fire and Rescue.The fire broke out about 5 p.m. near the Lemon Grove Trolley Station in the 1500 block of San Altos Place, department spokesman Sonny Saghera said.Initial reports were that palm trees were on fire, Saghera said. Responding firefighters — who came from Lemon Grove, Le Mesa, San Diego and San Miguel — found two palm tree crowns ablaze near a house.The fire the spread down to the trolley tracks and into nearby grass, threatening about 20 homes, he said.A water-dropping helicopter was used, and firefighters knocked down the flames in about 40 minutes.Flames damaged power lines and railroad ties to the trolley, a nearby fence and the eaves of some houses, Saghera said. The trolley was temporarily shut down because of the fire, which burnt an area amounting to about 130 yards in total.The cause of the fire was being investigated by the Orange County Sheriff’s Bomb and Arson squad, Saghera said.

DU BCL leader expelled for ‘torturing’ quota protesterChief of Kabi Sufia Kamal Hall unit of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) was expelled from the Dhaka University and the party for allegedly torturing a female protester inside the hall early Wednesday.The expelled leader is Iffat Jahan, president of Sufia Kamal hall unit of BCL, reports UNB.The punitive action was taken against the female BCL leader immediate after the incident, said DU Proctor Golam Rabbani.Witnesses said several numbers of BCL leaders and activists led by the hall unit president swooped on the general residents early Wednesday, leaving Morsheda Akhter, a 4th year student of botany department, critically injured.They beat Morsheda mercilessly for being involved in staging demonstration demanding quota reform, witnesses said.Hearing her screams, the other students of the dormitory rushed in and confined the BCL leader.The image of Morsheda went viral on different social networking sites which drew attention to other general students.Iffat JahanMeanwhile, around thousands of students of the university thronged in front of the Kabi Sufia Kamal Hall and took position in front of the gate in protest of the incident.They also brought out a rally from the hall demanding punishment of the BCL leader. The procession ended in front of the Raju Sculpture after parading High Court premises, Doyel Chattar and Central Shaheed Minar around 3:00am.Later, the DU authorities as per the order of Dhaka university vice-chancellor professor Md Akhtaruzzaman expelled Esha, the proctor said.Earlier, the BCL central executive committee expelled Esha on charge of ‘violating organisational discipline’.Students of public and private universities across the country, including the capital, have been staging demonstrations since 8 April to press home their demand to get the quota system reformed.
Last month, Brewer, who is also black, shot and killed Thomas about 20 seconds after he saw Thomas and another man struggling in a busy intersection. When the deputy got out of his car and yelled, Thomas approached Brewer, unarmed and with his pants around his ankles, and Brewer filed a single shot, according to video from Brewer’s dashboard camera.The shooting garnered national attention, occurring within a week of Sacramento police killing of Stephon Clark, an unarmed black man in his grandmother’s backyard, and Louisiana officials declining to pursue criminal charges against officers in the high-profile shooting death of Alton Sterling. In 2017, Texas law enforcement officers injured or killed 158 people in shootings, according to data from the attorney general’s office. A quarter of the shootings involved a black individual, and 16 percent of the injured or killed were unarmed.Gonzalez said after Thomas’ shooting that he was concerned by Brewer’s use of deadly force since the deputy was armed with a Taser as well. He said during a news conference that Thomas was “obviously in a state of crisis of some kind.” Two of Thomas’ children were killed by their mother in 2016, according to his sister.At the meeting Monday, Gonzalez told residents and members of Thomas’ family that his agency and the Houston Police Department were expediting their investigations, departmental and criminal, to get answers for the community as quickly as possible.Jackson Lee, however, had already made her judgment. She said to the family that she would fight for them in the “unjust killing.” She mentioned a bill she filed after the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, to increase police accountability, including a national task force on law enforcement oversight and collecting data nationwide on police practices.“We all should be on saving lives, whether they are blue lives or they are black lives,” she said. “We need to be prepared to do that, and we need to pass laws that let us do better.” Shelby Knowles for The Texas TribuneThe Texas Organizing Project calls attention to a town hall meeting in north Houston at the intersection where Danny Ray Thomas, an unarmed black man, was shot by a Harris County Sheriff’s deputy in March 2018.Terrance Koontz stood, megaphone in hand, at the intersection where Danny Ray Thomas lost his life.“We want to change the policies that allow the police to kill black and brown people at will,” he shouted during Monday evening rush hour at the cars who drove over the asphalt where Harris County Sheriff’s deputy Cameron Brewer hunched over Thomas after he shot and killed him less than two weeks ago.Koontz’s chants — along with the signs his coworkers at the Texas Organizing Project held up calling for “no more bloodshed” — got polite honks and a thumbs up from passersby in the north Houston neighborhood of Greenspoint. Others handed out flyers for a town hall later that evening to discuss potential policy changes with local politicians and officials stemming from the latest officer-involved shooting of an unarmed black man.Shelby Knowles for The Texas TribuneA memorial at the intersection where Danny Ray Thomas, an unarmed black man, was shot by a Harris County Sheriff’s deputy in March 2018.U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee and state Rep. Jarvis Johnson, both Democrats from Houston, joined Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez and representatives from the county’s district attorney’s office and the Houston Police Department at a community meeting Monday night at a local church about a mile away from where the shooting occurred. He said he knows cops have one of the most stressful jobs but that in looking at the issues, “we have to start looking at not what’s wrong with our community, we have to start looking at what’s going on with our police officers.”Near the end of the meeting, Thomas’ sister, Kita, spoke directly to the elected officials overseeing investigations into her brother’s death. She paced with the microphone in front of the stage, sometimes yelling, often sobbing, for about a half hour. She talked about them having only each other after the loss of their mother when they were young, and how Thomas struggled after the murders of his two children.“We’ve been suffering our whole life,” she sobbed. “Do you hear me? That was my world, and he was taken from me … I need for you to bring justice for my brother.” Last week, she called on the federal government to investigate the shooting, but she acknowledged Monday it would be a hard mountain to climb with the current administration, adding that the federal government wouldn’t come in before the local authorities completed their investigations anyway. On Wednesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders repeatedly said in response to questions about Clark’s shooting that the investigations were “local matters.”“In these specific cases and these specific instances, those would be left up to local authorities to make that determination and not something for the federal government to weigh in to,” Sanders said.Shelby Knowles for The Texas TribuneKita Thomas, sister of Danny Ray Thomas, spoke at the “No More Blood Shed” town hall meeting in Houston, Texas on April 2, 2018.Locals are well aware of the federal government’s shift away from police shooting investigations. Tarsha Jackson, the criminal justice director of the Texas Organizing Project, said before the meeting that the federal government could enact policies on accountability and training but that she’s not hopeful under U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.“We have to rely on our local administration to put some policies in place to protect us,” she said.Gonzalez, for his part, said he has started a “very aggressive campaign” to provide deputies with crisis intervention training.Last year, state lawmakers passed the Sandra Bland Act, which increased the number of hours of de-escalation and crisis intervention training for all law enforcement officers dealing with people with mental impairments. It also added training in dealing with all citizens, including techniques to limit the use of deadly force. That statewide training program by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement began rolling out for officers this year.At the hearing, Johnson, the state representative, brought up his failed legislation from last year to have a biannual psychological exam of law enforcement officers. He said he would file the bill again, stating that in a decade, significantly more officers died of suicide than in the line of duty by another person.“When we have more officers committing suicide than being killed in the line of duty, we have our priorities mixed up,” he said, mentioning the bill that granted nearly $25 million for local police departments to get bulletproof vests.

Stay on target Sorry, the latest Loot Crate unboxing is a bit late. Technical difficulties, gun distractions, obsessing over the Nintendo Switch, you know how it is. December 2016’s Loot Crate theme was REVOLUTION, and it had some neat items.The biggest property in the Loot Crate is Assassin’s Creed. Not only is the month’s pin a pretty nice silver Assassins logo, but the box comes with a Funk Pop figure of Aguilar from the Assassin’s Creed movie. In a related note, did you know there was an Assassin’s Creed movie? It apparently came out last month. Had Magneto in it. No, young Magneto, the guy who was in Prometheus.Still hitting that geek nostalgia note, Firefly has an appearance in the Revolution box in the form of an iron-on Browncoats patch. It’s a pretty neat logo that wasn’t featured prominently in the show, with a blue start on a green triangle. Obviously military, but with just a bit of extra geometric complexity to give it a sci-fi look.There’s also the book Figure Fantasy: The Pop Culture Photography of Daniel Picard. It’s a book of immaculately posed and photographed Sideshow Collectibles figures in different tableaus. Mostly Star Wars and Marvel, The photos really show off the absurd detail of Sideshow figures, which is why they’re several hundred dollars each. The book also comes with a coupon code for $25 off an order from Slideshow, with a chance of that code being worth $200 in Sideshow products.Incidentally, with the name Picard, this extremely talented photographer was obviously doomed to shooting action figures, from birth.Finally, there’s a Fsociety t-shirt. Fsociety (Is it fsociety? FSociety? Style guidelines are weird for things like this) is the hacker collective from Mr. Robot, which many of my friends are saying I should watch. I’m too hooked by Terrace House at the moment, though.The full list:Assassin’s Creed Aguilar Funko Pop figureFirefly Independents (Browncoats) iron-on patchFigure Fantasy: The Pop Culture Photography of Daniel Picard bookMr. Robot Fsociety t-shirtMonthly pin: Assassin’s Creed logo The Best Wonder Wharf Prizes for Bob’s Burgers FansOpen The Nick Box from CultureFly, Get Amazing Hat
The last time a certain set of fishing baskets was used was most likely the 14th century: a time of plague, of war with France, of Chaucer and Plantagenet kings. Next stop: the year 2018.Fishing baskets buried for hundreds of years under silt and clay have been found by two brothers walking off the Monmouthshire coast, reported the BBC.The items, which could date back to the 14th century, were uncovered on the Severn Estuary during recent storms that washed away the layers of mud, sand and silt.Image © BLACK ROCK LAVE NET HERITAGE FISHERYMartin and Richard Morgan, who found the four baskets, said the level of detail was incredible.“It’s amazing to think the last person to see them was possibly in the 14th century,” said Martin.It is now the close season for the Black Rock Lave Net Fishery, but the fishermen kept an eye on the fishing grounds. They said in an interview that they often find many things of interest, ranging from prehistoric animal bones to wooden shipwrecks.Black Rock Lave Net Heritage FisheryMartin Morgan, secretary of the fishery, explained to the South Wales Argus that it is unusual to uncover so many baskets grouped together.Morgan said: “The baskets would have been baited and pegged to the estuary bed at low tide. The catch would have been green eels and lamprey.”Image © BLACK ROCK LAVE NET HERITAGE FISHERY“They are made of willow and hazel in an urn shape with a non-return built into the neck. The overall length is around two feet.”Previous finds made by the fishermen that have been recorded by Cadw and carbon dated by Reading University were from the 12th to the 15th century. These baskets are of a similar design.A Roman fishing basket (Latin nassa)It’s clearly been a popular place for fishing for a very long time.“People have fished this estuary for thousands of years, and it’s great for our fishermen to uncover and record some history.”Lave net fishing, as practiced by Morgan and his colleagues, is an ancient fishing method, recorded on the estuary in the 17th century. However, it is thought to have been around for much longer.Wagenya fishing baskets.

The tradition has been passed down through the generations.The estuary has played a significant part in the life of those that have dwelt in the area for thousands of years, said transceltic.The area of Caldicott saw considerable activity at the time of the Bronze Age. Close to the Nedern Brook beside Caldicot Castle, excavations uncovered a plank from an ancient boat and wooden structures in the former riverbed.Read another story from us: Discovery of Military Plane Wreck Could Solve 50-yr-old ‘Homesick Pilot’ MysterySudbrook probably played a role in guarding the Severn estuary at an ancient ferry crossing place. Sudbrook hillfort is also located on the coast, and is thought to have been built and occupied by the Silures from the 2nd century BC.The Silures were a powerful Celtic tribe that lived in what is now southeast Wales.Nancy Bilyeau, a former staff editor at Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and InStyle, has written a trilogy of historical thrillers for Touchstone Books.

From today (21 June 2017), Rail Plus is introducing an exclusive new luggage storage and transfer service in Paris that ‘relieves’ travellers of their luggage, on arrival in the city by air or train, so they are free to explore the city and its surrounds immediately without having to lug around suitcases.The new service entails being met on arrival by a concierge who collects customers’ bags and delivers them to their hotel at a convenient time – which can range from check-in on the same day to one, two or even three days’ later.At check-out, the concierge collects the bags and then delivers them to the train station or airport in time for departure.The service can be used on arrival and/or departure and must be booked through Rail Plus seven days prior to luggage pick-up. Prices range from $61 for two pieces of luggage for same day delivery, to $129 for five pieces of luggage stored for three days.Rail Plus Commercial Director Ingrid Kocijan says the new service allows customers to make the most of their time exploring Paris.“As soon as the concierge relieves customers of their luggage they can start enjoying Paris, rather than lugging suitcases around for hours while waiting for their hotel check-in. “And when it’s time to depart, they can hand over the bags and enjoy all the city has to offer – whether its strolling through the Louvre, relaxing in cafes or shopping in the city’s stylish boutiques – until it’s time to board their train or flight.” ParisRail Plus
By Mike TheodoulouYou might be an international company in Cyprus scouting for highly skilled employees. Or you could be a high-flying Cypriot IT professional in London or Melbourne who would love to come home – provided you can find a rewarding career.Invest Cyprus, which promotes and facilitates foreign investment in Cyprus, has now launched a free match-making website that will bring you together with a just a few clicks of the keyboard.Called Invest Career, the platform is part of Invest Cyprus’ proactive drive to provide ongoing support to existing and prospective investors in any sector by making it easy to find and recruit the best talent. Equally, Invest Cyprus believes Invest Career will help to reverse the island’s brain drain, although qualified professionals of any nationality can also register, as can Cypriots living here. Invest Career’s highly effective search tools identify and attract the best candidates for a job – wherever they are.“Our portal (www.invest.career) is the key to a unique pool of listed professionals and companies seeking to make the most out of what Cyprus offers in terms of job opportunities and human talent,” says CIPA’s Natasa Pilides (former Director General).The number and range of companies locating their regional or global headquarters in Cyprus have risen steadily in recent years, with financial stability and a surge in economic growth attracting a steady increase in foreign direct investment.On Invest Career, companies can outline what they require of an employee for an opening, the salary range and when the employee would be required. In turn, those seeking a career in Cyprus can list their skills, experience, what salary they would consider, and when they would be available to relocate. It gives both company and potential employee the chance to plan ahead.Sophisticated software then sends companies and prospective employees electronic notifications alerting them to the best matches. For instance, a job-seeker would learn that his or her qualifications, skillset and experience match 80 percent of what a certain company needs for a particular placement, or 65 percent of what another employer requires. In turn, a company will be notified about which job-seekers match what they are looking for and by what percentage.With one of the highest per capita rates of graduates in the world, Cyprus has a rich pool of human talent. But expanding its width and depth is essential to keeping pace with the international business sector’s rapid growth.Following large offshore gas deposits in the eastern Mediterranean, Cyprus is expected to become a regional energy trading hub and IOCs (international oil companies) are already making Cyprus their base to support exploration drilling. Other developments, such as Brexit, also mean that many international companies are either relocating their headquarters to Cyprus, establishing a presence, or expanding existing activities here.All need skilled, multilingual staff. In particular, there is increasing demand for employees with IT skills and experience. Many overseas Cypriots working in top-notch companies overseas fit this profile. They moved abroad either during the recent recession or studied and remained overseas because of better opportunities.Now many companies in Cyprus offer opportunities that compete with the best abroad. Salaries are attractive and while they might not be as high as those for top professionals in London or New York, nor is the cost of living or income tax. Returning Cypriot professionals will be able to save more here than they would in other more expensive European cities. Invest Career has a handy information section detailing the cost of living, tax rates and other incentives.Many of the same incentives account for Cyprus’ success as an international business centre. It has a business-friendly environment that is efficient, transparent and well-regulated. Operational costs are substantially lower than in mainland Europe while Cyprus’ corporate tax regime is highly favourable and there are tax breaks for expatriate executives. A popular holiday island, Cyprus is also renowned for its quality of life and very low crime rates.Last but not least is the island’s strategic location as the European Union’s easternmost member. In one direction, Cyprus is the eastern gateway into the EU’s market of 500 million people. In the other, Cyprus provides an ideal springboard into emerging markets in the Middle East, North Africa and Asia, and enjoys excellent relations with the oil and gas-rich Gulf states.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboola
