Can you imagine spending a single day without your high-tech smartphone? What an incredibly slow, boring and, not to mention, taxing day it would be, right? The thing is that we’ve come to depend on these advanced technological devices to such an extent that even the smallest activities, like switching on the air conditioner and looking up a recipe, are performed by using them. They’ve made our lives convenient to the utmost degree. Because of which, today, nearly every individual in the world has a smartphone in their pocket. On top of it, Statista predicts the mobile phone user count to exceed 5 billion by the end of 2019. Such is the prevalence of this technological wonder!

However, the more sophisticated the mobile software becomes, the more delicate and prone to being damaged the physical hardware gets.

You see, these super-sleek smartphones are sensitive enough to crack at the slightest fall, suffer glitches of the weirdest sort, or worse, suddenly heat up and melt all the data, leaving you crestfallen. This overheating is a significant problem that many smartphone users face these days as climatic temperatures skyrocket across the globe. One of the severest incidents of mobile overheating was recorded back in 2016 when Samsung Galaxy Note 7 caused serious burns and property damage to its owners.

Overusing the device’s battery power or cluttering it with junk might be the potential reasons behind the smartphone’s core-melt. But, what certainly pushes it over the edge to its early death is the intense summer heat on the outside.

So, how can you protect your prized possessions from these damaging internal and external factors this summer? Check out the following tried-and-tested tips:

Manage your Apps

A mobile phone without mobile applications is like a body without organs. Just an empty shell. These apps – from Google Docs to the latest Harry Potter AR game – are what actually give your phone its true value and real-time utility. However, a majority of smartphone applications require a ton of power to function properly, and once accessed, keep on running in the background without notice. What does this lead to? Battery drainage and ultimate rise in the phone’s internal temperature. So, before you head off to sleep, I’d recommend you to force close all the background apps.

In addition to this, de-cluttering your phone would also prevent its eventual overheating. Go ahead and delete those pointless apps that sit idly on the home screen and consume battery unnecessarily.

Check Your Usage

Let’s face it. Excess of everything is bad. If you spend too much, you over-topple your monthly budget. Similarly, if you overuse your phone, you unknowingly increase its chances of overheating & facing damage. Whether it’s playing PUBG with your peers all day every day, or even binge-watching your favorite seasons throughout the weekend over your spectacularly fast internet connection, you need to realize this over-usage puts a huge load on your phone’s battery and causes it to heat up from within. I’d suggest you alter this lifestyle a little, put the device aside for some time and give it a break to cool off. Then, go back to watching once the battery has stabilized. As simple as that.

Remove the Cover

Quick question: Do you ever wear gloves during summer? Not even as a fashion statement, right? Because it just doesn’t make sense. Then, can you expect your phone to survive the summer heat by constantly wearing a plastic case on its back? I’d take that as a no. The thing is, as your phone’s inner temperature rises, the heat seeps through the covering and gets entrapped by the cover, which on top of it, absorbs the heat from the outside as well. This double blow then gives your smartphone a severe thermal shock. So, do remove your phone’s casing every once in a while, and let it breathe a sigh of relief.

Don’t Leave it in the Car!

Your car is a giant metallic box which takes in the sun’s rays and intensifies them. That is precisely the reason why you cannot drive long distances at the peak of summer without proper air conditioning. This is why leaving your phone in a parked car would be a big mistake too. As the car’s inner temperature builds up, it will project that heat at the smartphone and lead it towards subtle overheating. So, always take your phone with you whenever you exit your vehicle, and place it adjacent to the cool AC waves as you travel from one place to another.

Assess the Sunlight Impact

‘Keep out of direct sunlight!’ That’s what grandma advised us kids when we were young and rebellious enough to skateboard down the street in the piping-hot June breeze. Why? Because she knew with the depleting ozone layer, sun’s rays had become super dangerous, carrying an intense ultraviolet element. These rays cause different degrees of sunburn or fever. That is why it is absolutely crucial you stay out of direct sunlight and keep your technological devices away from it too. For added safety, cover your phone with a glare screen which will protect it like the sunscreen on your skin.

In conclusion, smartphones are sensitive devices that require special care in summer, as they are more prone to overheating (from both internal and external factors). The aforementioned pointers show exactly how you can safeguard your prized possession from heat, and save your money from going down the drain.

Catcher Adley Rutschman named Most Valuable Oriole in standout rookie season: ‘He’s a different breed’

Catcher Adley Rutschman Named Most Valuable Oriole In Standout Rookie Season: ‘He’s A Different Breed’
google news

In Adley Rutschman’s first moments as a major leaguer, he stood behind home plate at Camden Yards and rotated, a quick visual lap to soak in the moment at the advice of other catchers in the Orioles’ system.

In searching for a turning point in Baltimore’s unexpected winning season, it’s hard to argue for anything else.

Rutschman was announced as the Most Valuable Oriole on Monday, with local media recognizing a rookie phenom whose arrival propelled Baltimore into contention. The Orioles were eight games under .500 when they promoted Rutschman on May 21 and have 66-53 since to secure their first winning season since 2016. He joined Gregg Olson in 1989 and Rodrigo López in 2002 as rookies to be named MVO.

“Right around the time Adley got here, we started playing better baseball,” manager Brandon Hyde said. “We started taking better at-bats, winning more series. We had winning months of just playing good baseball and pitching well.

“He’s a really good player, and to be able to put him in the top part of the lineup, to be able to catch majority of the games, the way him and Robbie [Chirinos] handled our pitching staff I thought was incredible. To have the guy behind the plate, controlling the game, and then the at-bats he takes as well and he got a bunch of big hits late in big games. He’s been a huge difference for our team.”

Rutschman would be the first to say the Orioles’ success was a byproduct of the group as a whole, and MVO voting reflected that. Others receiving at least one top-three vote were closer Félix Bautista, outfielder Austin Hays, starting pitcher Jordan Lyles, shortstop Jorge Mateo, first baseman Ryan Mountcastle, outfielder Cedric Mullins, second baseman Rougned Odor and outfielder Anthony Santander.

His humility quickly stood out to Chirinos, a 10-year veteran signed this offseason to serve as Rutschman’s backup and mentor. Taken with the first overall pick in the 2019 draft, Rutschman has long been viewed as the face of Baltimore’s rebuild, and when he reached the majors, most publications considered him the top prospect in the sport.

“Sometimes you see guys like that, and they think they know everything, and he’s different,” Chirinos said. “Since Day 1, he’s asking questions, trying to understand, like, ‘Hey, I don’t know everything. I need help.’ It’s cool to see that from a young player.

“He’s gonna be here a long time, and hopefully, he’ll stay here to help this franchise win many championships.”

He’s certainly the type of player who can have that influence on both sides of the ball. Rutschman enters the final three games of a season that could see him land among the top finishers for American League Rookie of the Year hitting .251/.356/.444, with his 35 doubles — a record for a Baltimore rookie or catcher — and 63 walks pacing the team despite his late arrival, a byproduct of a right tricep strain suffered in spring training.

Defensively, he’s endeared himself to the Orioles’ pitching staff by being himself and letting them do the same. After each inning, he meets them at the foul line for a fist bump, matching their excitement after a big out or offering words of encouragement after a rough frame. He ranks among the top 10 catchers in turning borderline pitches into strikes, according to Baseball Savant, and with him behind the plate, the Orioles have gone 49-33, with a record of 33-44 otherwise.

“I could talk for hours about him,” said outfielder Kyle Stowers, who came up the Orioles’ minor league system with Rutschman. “But honestly, in my couple of years of playing with him, the most impressive thing about him is the steadiness that he brings, behind the plate, at the plate, when he’s hitting. But also the person. He is the same guy every single day, and he brings such a steady presence to the team, but then also to us as friends. I think that’s the most impressive thing because he’s someone that deals with a lot of attention — pressure, if you will — and he handles it so well.

“He’s a different breed to handle it the way he does.”

Andrew Lloyd Webber is moving his ‘Cinderella’ to Broadway

Andrew Lloyd Webber Is Moving His 'Cinderella' To Broadway
google news

NEW YORK CITY — Andrew Lloyd Webber is saying goodbye to his last remaining show on Broadway and hosting another one.

The musical theater icon announced Monday that her revamped version of “Cinderella” will land in New York at the Imperial Theater in February with new songs, a new star and a new title.

“Bad Cinderella” – borrowing the title of a key song from the show rather than using the bland name of London West End’s “Cinderella” – will feature Linedy Genao in the title role. She had ensemble roles in “Dear Evan Hansen” and “On Your Feet!” Carrie Hope Fletcher played the title character in London.

Lloyd Webber hopes his fairy tale will end better on Broadway than in London, where “Cinderella” closed less than a year after opening and suffered heavy losses, especially when COVID-19 scrambled its run.

The musical features an all-new score by Lloyd Webber with book by Emerald Fennell and lyrics by David Zippel. JoAnn M. Hunter choreographs under the direction of Laurence Connor.

Lloyd Webber will close his “The Phantom of the Opera” on Broadway in 2023. Present on Broadway since 1988, it will close on February 18, a day after the start of previews for “Bad Cinderella”, which means that a comedy Lloyd Webber’s musical will have been performing on Broadway every night since September 1979.

Jaywalking decriminalized under new California law

Jaywalking Decriminalized Under New California Law
google news

Under a new law, Californians will be able to cross the street outside a formal intersection without having a ticket.

Governor Gavin Newsom on Friday signed the Freedom to Walk Act, which says pedestrians can be ticketed for jaywalking – or crossing outside an intersection – only if there is an “immediate danger of collision” , the statement said.

The law, drafted by Assemblyman Phil Ting of San Francisco, will take effect Jan. 1.

It amends the state’s vehicle code to “prohibit a peace officer … from stopping a pedestrian for specified traffic violations unless a reasonably prudent person becomes aware that he there is an immediate danger of collision with a moving vehicle”.

A similar bill that Ting introduced in the previous legislative session was vetoed by Newsom, who said he feared it would “unintentionally reduce pedestrian safety.” The governor, however, said at the time that “the uneven enforcement of jaywalking laws and the use of minor infractions like this as a pretext to arrest people of color…is unacceptable and must be addressed.”

Four years ago, Chinedu Okobi died after being repeatedly shocked by San Mateo County sheriff’s deputies trying to arrest him for jaywalking in Millbrae. And in 2020, an Orange County sheriff’s deputy shot and killed Kurt Reinhold after arresting him for allegedly jaywalking. Both Okobi and Reinhold were black. No charges were brought against the deputies.

Ravens CB Jimmy Smith retiring after 11 seasons in Baltimore

Ravens Cb Jimmy Smith Retiring After 11 Seasons In Baltimore
google news

Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith will announce his retirement Monday afternoon, ending his NFL career after 11 years in Baltimore.

Smith, a first-round pick in 2011 who helped secure the Ravens’ Super Bowl XLVII triumph, played 128 games in Baltimore, starting 90. He finished with 14 interceptions, seventh most in franchise history.

Smith, 33, acknowledged near the end of last season that his future in football was uncertain. He was set to become a free agent, and injuries had limited him to just 30 games from 2019 to 2021. He’ll be joined at a news conference Monday by coach John Harbaugh and general manager Eric DeCosta.

“It’s tough because I’m a football player,” Smith said before the Ravens’ regular-season finale in January. “I love it. Like, this is my life, and sometimes just even thinking about not playing, I’m like, ‘Ugh, I don’t want to do anything else.’ But it is a grind, and it’s something you have to mentally prepare yourself [for] the older you get. [And] having kids now, all the time, they’re like, ‘Daddy, you’re going to work again? You’re going to work again?’ And it’s like, ‘I’ve been doing this my entire life. I don’t know what it’s like to be free.’ ”

When healthy, Smith could be a shutdown outside cornerback, with the technique and size (6 feet 1) the Ravens have long coveted for their aggressive coverage schemes. Almost three months into the 2020 season, Pro Football Focus graded Smith as the eighth-best all-around corner in the league and the ninth best in coverage — ahead of starters Marlon Humphrey and Marcus Peters.

But injuries soon sidelined Smith, as they often did throughout his career. He played in every game in a season just twice, and after 2015, he never made more than 12 appearances in a year. Smith dealt with a sprained ankle, a sports hernia, a Lisfranc (foot) fracture, a back injury, a torn Achilles tendon, a sprained knee, a strained groin, a shoulder injury, a strained hip and a strained neck, among other ailments, over his career.

In January, Harbaugh, one of Smith’s fiercest advocates in Baltimore, recalled consoling him during his rookie year and telling him that he would recover from a sports hernia in time to play. Harbaugh said he told Smith that “You are going to be the guy that makes the difference in our season and wins us a championship.” In the Super Bowl, Smith kept San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree from catching the go-ahead touchdown pass on a fourth-and-goal play late in the fourth quarter.

“Darned if it wasn’t him on that last series that made the plays that needed to be made to win the Super Bowl in that game,” Harbaugh said. “So every now and then, we’ll kind of talk about that and kind of laugh about it. That always stands out for me. And then all the way through, he’s been through a lot personally. He’s done a great job with his family and his kids. He’s had to battle some adversity in terms of injuries and things like that, but when the time comes, he always shows up and plays good football.”

Any purchases made between October 6th and December 24th may be matched if the item’s price is reduced during another sale event. This peace of mind is huge for those looking to get their holiday shopping done early.

Another difference between Target Deal Days and Amazon Prime Day is that you don’t need to be a member to shop at the Target event or get the discounts. Anyone can shop the sales and get the items at discounted prices. Target Red Card holders can still save an additional 5% on every purchase and select items may be eligible for Target Circle offers.

“Our goal is to reduce the hundreds of miles people have to travel now to access care…and meet them where they are,” said Yamelsie Rodriguez, president of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis area and of southwestern Missouri. , said in an interview with NPR.

The mobile clinic will begin offering consultations and dispensing abortion pills later this year. It will work in Illinois, where abortion remains legal, but may move closer to neighboring state borders, reducing the distance many patients travel for the procedure.

“It gives us a lot of flexibility as to where to be,” Rodriguez said.

Illinois has become a hub for people from other parts of the Midwest and South who became unable to have abortions in their home state following the overturning of the state Supreme Court’s ruling. United this summer. Roe vs. Wade.

Anticipating this possibility, Planned Parenthood opened a large clinic in 2019 in Fairview Heights, Illinois, just across the border from St. Louis. Missouri had some of the strictest abortion laws in the country even before the court issued the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision, and state officials moved almost immediately to implement abortion bans in response to it.

The Fairview Heights clinic is expected to see about 14,000 patients traveling from across the region each year, an increase that “is materializing much, much faster than expected,” Rodriguez said. “We just need more access points.”

The mobile facility – housed inside a recreational vehicle – will include a small waiting room, a lab and two exam rooms. It will initially provide medical abortion up to 11 weeks gestation, officials said. It will eventually offer surgical abortions, probably starting next year.

Patients who see health care providers at the mobile clinic will follow the same protocol as those who visit a permanent Planned Parenthood facility, said Dr. Colleen McNicholas, chief medical officer for Planned Parenthood in the region. They take mifepristone — the first of a two-drug protocol approved by the Food and Drug Administration — on the spot. They are offered advice on the other drug, misoprostol, which is taken later.

“The only thing that will change is the fact that they may only have to drive for five hours instead of nine hours,” she said.

One of the first tasks will be to determine the best routes for the mobile clinic. The organization is looking at the data to determine where patients are coming from and is looking at health facilities, churches and other locations as potential stopping points. Another important consideration will be the safety and security of patients and staff, McNicholas said.

Officials say they may expand to other mobile units in the future. If the mobile clinic concept is successful, it could be part of a larger strategy to find new ways to reach post-abortion patients.Deer. An organization called Just the Pill also recently announced that it will provide mobile clinic medical abortion care to patients in the Western and Midwestern United States.

“We are all trying to work together to deal with the exponential increase in the number of patients traveling from prohibited states to what we call ‘safe haven states’ for abortion care,” said Yamelsie Rodriguez. “It’s a moment when everyone is on deck.”

Planned Parenthood says between June, when the Dobbs decision was made, and in August the number of patients from outside Missouri or Illinois nearly quadrupled at his clinic in Fairview Heights. The organization is also preparing to open a new family planning clinic in Rolla, Missouri in early November. Rodriguez said it was part of a broader effort to expand services, including contraception, STI testing and transgender care, and to provide reproductive health care in underserved rural areas of the state. .

The reversal of deer set up likely battles between states with a patchwork of different abortion laws. Earlier this year, a Missouri state legislator unsuccessfully proposed allowing people to sue those who help Missouri residents get out-of-state abortions — which she called of “abortion tourism”. That proposal fell through, but legal experts say it’s unclear how conflicts between state laws will be resolved in the future.
