Watch 49ers celebrate win over Washington with slip-and-slide

first_imgIt could not have been much fun for the 49ers Sunday, all the coaches and players standing on the sideline in a total downpour.Very little went according to plan for either offense, creating some ugly football in incredibly sloppy conditions. But after about three hours, the Niners came out with a 9-0 win.To celebrate, the heroes of the game — the 49ers defense — took advantage of the rain-drenched turf of FedEx field, throwing it back to with a middle school-style slip-and-slide.Nick Bosa …last_img read more

Where To Get A Chromecast Now, And Why You May Want To Wait

first_imgGoogle’s $35 Chromecast TV-streaming device remains in high demand. A month after launch, retailers still can’t keep the tiny gadget on its shelves, whether real or digital.Last week, Google Play showed a September 3 ship date for the product, but it has since pushed that back to 2 to 3 weeks. Best Buy showed some inventory for a brief, shining moment on Monday, and unlike Google Play, the retailer even promoted the rare offer of free Netflix for three months. Sadly, it too has vanished. And there’s still no joy on Amazon, with or without the Netflix offer. [Update 8/27: Appears that Best Buy has refreshed its stock.]If you’re a would-be Chromecast customer trying to get your hands on this elusive device, take heart: If you absolutely must have it right away, there are ways you can snag this streaming stick. Where To Buy Right NowSee also: 5 Cool Chromecast Hacks and WorkaroundsThings change on a moment-by-moment basis, but as of this writing, you’d be hard-pressed to find Google’s streaming media player at any of the usual suspects—i.e., major electronics retailers or Google Play.That’s no surprise. Whenever a new device grabs a lot of attention, people tend to stockpile them. Sometimes they hoard products for family and friends, but often enough, it’s a business move. High demand allows opportunistic types to sell inventory at an inflated cost.Indeed, a quick search on eBay reveals several Chromecasts for sale. Some even offer the Netflix deal, which means they were originally purchased early in the launch phase. A Craigslist search shows similar results in sub-sites all over the country. These sales aren’t necessarily a bad way to go, since the prices—which start at around $40 and go up to $50 or $60 and beyond—aren’t prohibitively expensive. But bear in mind that you’re likely doing business with an individual or small operation, not a large reputable company with customer satisfaction or return policies. So standard eBay and Craigslist cautions apply, like checking reviews/ratings and never sending cash or paying with a debit card.Why You May Want To WaitSee also: What You Can Watch On Chromecast And HowGoogle just sent out a software update that blocked AllCast (née AirCast), a popular Android app that allowed users to stream local media and other files to Chromecast.According to a Google+ post by Android developer Koushik Dutta, who created the AllCast app, Chromecast’s latest firmware update not only blocks the functionality, but does so on purpose. Heads up. Google’s latest Chromecast update intentionally breaks AllCast. They disabled ‘video_playback’ support from the ChromeCast application.Given that this is the second time they’ve purposefully removed/disabled[1] the ability to play media from external sources, it confirms some of my suspicions that I have had about the Chromecast developer program: The policy seems to be a heavy handed approach, where only approved content will be played through the device. The Chromecast will probably not be indie developer friendly.Dutta seems to be accusing Google of going out of its way to block external streaming sources, though when I reached out to the company, a Google spokesperson flat-out denied that: We’re excited to bring more content to Chromecast and would like to support all types of apps, including those for local content. It’s still early days for the Google Cast SDK, which we just released in developer preview for early development and testing only. We expect that the SDK will continue to change before we launch out of developer preview, and want to provide a great experience for users and developers before making the SDK and additional apps more broadly available. So if streaming from an Android device is a make-or-break feature for you, just know that you may have to wait for it regardless of whether you buy the product now or not. (Streaming from a desktop, however, still seems to work fine via tab casting.) Ultimately, my advice is to go with Google Play and wait the couple of weeks for delivery. Unless you’re a savvy eBayer or Craigslist treasure hunter, sticking with an official channel will offer the most peace of mind and ensure that you’ll definitely get your goods. Plus, you won’t pay extra and you’ll have a warranty with your purchase. Your mileage may vary, but in my book, that’s worth waiting an extra week or two. Feature image by Madeleine Weiss for ReadWrite. UPDATE August 27, 2013: Best Buy appears to have gotten more inventory. How long it will remain in stock, however, is anyone’s guess, but it’s worth noting that the sale page does feature the Netflix offer for now. Hopefully this retail channel will remain open.  Serverless Backups: Viable Data Protection for … Tags:#cloud#connected TV#media#streaming Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img adriana lee How Intelligent Data Addresses the Chasm in Cloud Cloud Hosting for WordPress: Why Everyone is Mo…last_img read more

T20 WC: Gayle’s women guests arrested from his hotel room

first_imgThree British women were arrested by Sri Lanka Police on Wednesday, after they were found to be socialising with West Indian star cricketer Chris Gayle in his hotel room.Sources at the Cinnamon Grand hotel in Colombo, where the West Indian players are staying for the ongoing T20 World Cup, said the women were guests of Gayle and his team-mates Andre Russell, Fidel Edwards and Dwayne Smith.Police bodyguards protecting players arrested the three Britons before handing them over to the nearby police station for further investigation.”Ministerial Security Division (MSD) guards assigned to protect the players carried out the arrest and the three women were handed over to the Kollupitiya police station for further investigations,” police said in a statement.”There was no wrongdoing on the part of the players or the women and we are surprised at the police action,” a hotel source told the agencies. “It is not against the law to be a guest of a player.”The International Cricket Council and the West Indies team have refrained from commenting on the matter. The Caribbean team take on Australia in the second semi-final on Friday.On September 24, a Sri Lankan broke into the rooms of two Australian cricketers at the same hotel and offered them sex. He was fined 1,000 rupees (around eight dollars) and handed a one-month suspended jail term.Hotel security has been a key issue at international cricket tournaments since then-Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer was found dead in his room during the World Cup in Jamaica in 2007.His death was initially treated as a murder case before police concluded he died of natural causes.advertisementlast_img read more

Camp Southern Ground Announces Grand Opening Of The Peterson Dining Hall

first_imgCamp Southern Ground announces the completion of the Peterson Dining Hall, designed by Perkins + Will, with construction by DPR and Structor Group.Peterson Dining HallCredit/Copyright: Tim HurlseyThis marks the completion of a signature component of the build-out on the growing campus.Camp Southern Ground is located on over 400 acres in Fayetteville, Georgia, and is the non-profit passion project of three time GRAMMY Award-winning artist Zac Brown of the Zac Brown Band.Inspired by his own experience as a camp counselor, Zac’s vision is to create a state-of-the-art facility that is more than the typical camp experience. Camp Southern Ground’s mission is to provide extraordinary experiences for children to recognize and magnify the unique gifts within themselves and others to profoundly impact the world. While at camp there will be activities to challenge, educate and inspire campers, with a special emphasis on children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), learning and attention issues like ADD, ADHD and Dyslexia, social or emotional challenges, and those with family members serving in the military.Located in the center of the campus, the Peterson Dining Hall was tasked with being the heart of Camp Southern Ground.“Peterson Dining Hall is the heart of Camp like the kitchen is the heart of Home. Zac told us that he wanted an iconic building unlike any other, as the centerpiece of Camp – a building that signals to the kids upon arrival that they are in a unique and special place transcending everyday experiences,” says Chris Sciarrone of Perkins + Will.As the first major build-out to the campus, Camp Southern Ground can now begin work towards completion of more projects to prepare for a Summer 2018 opening.“We are thrilled to have the Peterson Dining Hall completed. It is a major functional component of our camp programs and really sets the tone for architectural design, construction quality and sustainability. Now, having the dining hall completed, this puts us one step closer to being able to open for week long, overnight camps which is slated for summer of 2018,” said Mike Dobbs, President and CEO of Camp Southern Ground.The Peterson Dining Hall includes some very special features and is comprised of materials in which the majority was sourced locally. The ceiling is also made from sustainably harvested Mahogany wood donated by Bob Taylor of Taylor Guitars, and the focal point of the dining hall is the 26-foot-high brick fireplace.The state-of-the-art dining hall will serve up to 300 campers plus 150 counselors, staff and volunteers during the summer camping sessions, and has the capacity to serve well over 400 for special events, meetings and conventions in the off season.The structure is not only a modern work of art, but its sustainable features and architectural innovations will enhance energy efficiency as well as support the mission of the camp’s certified organic farm and nutritional education. For instance, from the geothermal system that will heat and cool the building, to the natural zinc building envelope, and the low energy, renewable building materials, this building will save more energy over time. An example of its design innovation is seen in the custom grinder and extractor which converts as much food waste as possible from the kitchen into compost for the farm, while minimizing what goes to the landfill.The Peterson Dining Hall is available to rent for special events and conventions.

Illegal landing in NW Provo
