Facilities and Recent History

The Teatro Massimo is the largest theatre in Italy. Basile was inspired by ancient and classical Sicilian architecture and, thus, the exterior was designed in the high neoclassical style incorporating elements of the Greek temples at Selinunte and Agrigento. Realized in the late-Renaissance style, the auditorium was planned for 3,000 people, but, in its current format, it seats 1,381, with 7 tiers of boxes rising up around an inclined stage, and shaped in the typical horseshoe style. In 1974, the house was closed to complete renovations required by updated safety regulations, but cost over-runs, corruption, and political in-fighting all added to the delay and it remained closed for twenty-three years, finally re-opening on 12 May 1997, four days before its centenary. The opera season started again in 1999, although Verdi's Aida was performed in 1998 while work in progress continued. During the restoration regular opera seasons were performed in Teatro Politeama, a minor building not far from Teatro Massimo. In summer a few performances, usually concerts, ballet and operetta, are held in Teatro della Verdura. In recent years, "charges of corruption and political meddling…along with budget deficits and heavy debts" have plagued the house, but, under its then part-English music director, Jan Latham Koenig, it was reported that it is once again on track. 2013-2014 was a two-year hiatus under the leadership of the comissario straordinario Fabio Carapezza Guttuso, who brought in Lorenzo Amato and Eytan Pessen as artistic advisors. Under Carapezza Guttuso's leadership the theatre offered a varied programme including Richard Strauss's Feuersnot, Hans Werner Henze's Gisela!, Jaromir Weinberger's Schwanda the bagpiper and an increased ballet activity. The current intendant is the experienced Francesco Giambrone and the musical director is Gabriele Ferro. The final scenes of the Francis Ford Coppola's film The Godfather Part III (1990) were filmed at the theatre.

Recent history

Until 2001, the theatre was owned and operated by the Wimbledon Civic Theatre Trust, on behalf of the London Borough of Merton, who still own the freehold of the building. The trust was responsible for overseeing a multimillion-pound refurbishment in the late 1990s, incorporating a brand new backstage area, fly tower, and a complete re-seating of the orchestra stalls as well as redecoration of the interior. During this period, the theatre was closed for an entire year. The venue fell into severe financial difficulties in 2003 and was forced to close. Following lengthy talks between leading producers, local councillors, and companies, in autumn 2003 a deal was agreed for the theatre to be managed by the Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG). Following a name change to the New Wimbledon Theatre, the venue reopened in February 2004 with Matthew Bourne's production of The Nutcracker followed by a season of touring musicals, dance, and ballet, culminating in the London revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats. In November 2005, the theatre saw the launch of a new UK pantomime company, First Family Entertainment with their flagship production being Cinderella starring Susan Hampshire, Richard Wilson, John Barrowman, Naomi Wilkinson, Peter Duncan, and Tim Vine. In 2006, the theatre welcomed its first Hollywood star in the shape of Happy Days' Henry Winkler. Subsequent Christmases have seen global stars including Pamela Anderson, Warwick Davis, Edna Everage, Linda Gray, David Hasselhoff, Priscilla Presley, Jerry Springer, and Ruby Wax, alongside British household names including Brian Blessed, Jo Brand, Bobby Davro, Anita Dobson, Gareth Gates, Ross Kemp, Alistair McGowan, Paul O'Grady, Joanna Page, Wayne Sleep, Louie Spence, Claire Sweeney, and Tim Vine. The theatre has since played host to a large variety of major touring productions, plus the UK launch of Josef Weinberger's UK collection of Disney musicals available to amateur companies throughout the British Isles. In 2010, the national tour of Spamalot, the musical based on the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, opened at the New Wimbledon. Television usageThe venue is frequently hired out for television production, with many television series having been shot at the location, including The Bill, The IT Crowd, De-Lovely, Little Britain, Extras (the Aladdin pantomime episode with Les Dennis) and We Are Most Amused, a comedy gala performance to celebrate the 60th birthday of The Prince of Wales, in aid of The Prince's Trust. Notably, the venue was the home of annual televised Christmas pantomimes, including: Aladdin (BBC 1971) - starring Cilla Black, Alfred Marks, Roy Castle, and Norman Vaughan Dick Whittington and His Cat (BBC 1972) - starring Dick Emery, Peter Noone, Michael Aspel, Gemma Craven, Robert Dorning, and Stratford Johns Robin Hood (BBC 1973) - starring Terry Scott, Hugh Lloyd, Anita Harris, Billy Dainty, Dana, Freddie Davies, and Alan Curtis Aladdin (ITV 2000) - starring Ed Byrne, Patsy Kensit, John Savident, Roger Moore, Martin Clunes, Ralf Little, Paul Merton, Julian Clary, Billy Murray, Lisa Riley, Meera Syal, Trisha Goddard, Leslie Phillips, and S Club 7 Dick Whittington (ITV 2002) - starring Richard Wilson, Harry Hill, James Fleet, Amanda Barrie, Roger Moore, Kevin Bishop, Julian Clary, Vanessa Feltz, Lee Mack, Tina O'Brien, Paul Merton, Debra Stephenson, Jessica Stevenson, Mark Williams, and Hear'SayTouring productionsTouring shows that have visited Wimbledon include: Cats, Starlight Express, The Sound of Music, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Monty Python's Spamalot, Beauty and the Beast, West Side Story, Jesus Christ Superstar, Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Rocky Horror Show, Fame - The Musical, Never Forget, Priscilla Queen of the Desert - the Musical, Cabaret, Blood Brothers, Saturday Night Fever, Carousel, Footloose - The Musical, Grease, Anything Goes, Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake, Our House, Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story, Tap Dogs, Taboo, Flashdance - The Musical, Annie, Annie Get Your Gun, The Rat Pack - Live from Las Vegas, Dancing in the Streets, Sister Act, An Inspector Calls, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Rock of Ages, Chicago, Shrek the Musical, Avenue Q, and Dirty Dancing.

What Are Some Ways to Keep My Hair Really Healthy?
What Are Some Ways to Keep My Hair Really Healthy?
Use professional shampoo & conditioner. I know it may seem like a rip-off, however all the shampoos like Pantene, Garnier, etc. have a high alcohol content....since the normal pH of your hair is 4.5-5.5, things containing high amounts of alcohol throw your hair all out of whack and cause breakage, split-ends, fly-aways, etc. The reason these shampoos make your hair feel soft is because they contain high amounts of humectants, which are just a cover for how damaging they really are! Another tip is ALWAYS use a thermal protector while applying heat. Heat appliances cause tons of damage to your hair. Usually this is a cream/clear gel you apply before blow drying. Never use a flat iron on hair that is not completely dry!1. Split End Help. ( 10 Points) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?For sure you should get a trim and maybe even cut your hair as short as you are comfortable doing it. You should for no reason straighten or dye your hair. Look for some Garnier Fructis or Pantene shampoos and conditioner for curly hair so that it extra moisturizes it and helps the split ends repair themselves. I say from experience that ppl with curly hair have really bad split ends, which is why we have special stuff in our hair products. The split ends wont magically go away in like a month or a few weeks, but you will see improvement after a while. Oh, and for sure DO NOT PICK THEM OFF!! It will just make it worse. Every two months until your hair is healthy get a trim. just maybe half an inch or an inch will be just fine. Eventually your hair will go back to normal. Good luck with that!.2. Whats the best shampoo conditioner for cheap?clever or V05 are solid inexpensive ($a million) shampoos, yet whilst it is composed of conditioner i could bypass Tresemme ($6) it does an somewhat solid interest. i take advantage of salon shampoo because of the fact i am form of a hair snob, yet I nonetheless use the cheap conditioner. Pantene is undesirable on your hair (too plenty protein and reasons alot of greater build up on the hair) so i does not bypass there. desire this permits! My hair is oily, superb, and colour-taken care of if that helps you any!3. How can I get my curly hair to be nice like Taylor Swift?Haha i have the same hair long and curly..but not pretty curly! im completely obsessed with taylor and her hair so i did so playing with it and what you really NEED to get is the conair hot sticks!! they are these little flexible curlers and they are not very expensive and i would look like a frizz ball without them!! you can like get them at walmart. anyways what i do when iwear my hair curly is like i get up and get in the shower and wash it and condition it and this may sound weird but dont use a whole lot of conditioner just enough to get it done cause it will help your hair hold the curl the just get out and towel dry your hair till it is just damp and then put a curling mouse in it and frizz serum then finish blow drying it straight! and you know have the curlers on like when your gettin in the shower and then just make sure the little light is on meaning that they are hot enough and then seperate your hair into pretty small peices (if you have really thick hair then you might need to buy two sets cause they only have 14 in them and you use small sections) and then start from the botom of your hair and role it through your hair and pin it together youll see the instructions on how to pin them together and make sure you wrap it all the way to the top of your head and leave them for like 15 or 20 minutes while your finishin gettin ready and then use like a light hairspray about 5 minutes before you take them out then your done. i know this thing was really long but its not that hard lol!!!! hope i helped good luck!!!!!!!!
What "facts" Do People Today Or Recent History Believe as a Result of Propaganda?
Not everyone believes the same things or the same facts. This depends heavily on your influences, education, culture etc. Ill say some of the most effective propaganda has been the anti-soviet ones, where people very often just disregard lack of evidence, but make major claims about history. The US propaganda machine during the cold war was very effective, and I see people misquote Lenin, or make claims about the USSR as a hellscape or other things for which they actually dont have any evidence.If you move a little away from history for a moment, I would also say that in my life time people have become extremely accepting of violence and murder. Despite all the American worries about school shootings, the US population and European to a large extend, now accepts murdering innocent people, under the guise of foreign policy, as something almost natural. Just 15 years ago, there were wild protests against the Iraq War, today drone strikes murdering innocent civilians in countries that we are not at war with, isnt even new worthy at all. And most people I talk to are not the slightest upset over this constant state of affairs. The Hidden US War in Somalia Amnesty International USA it must be very frustrating being Amnesty international, in an age where propaganda have effectively justified international death squads and summary execution of civilians by a foreign power from the air.Going back to history, to make sure I offend someone, I will also briefly talk about the most widely spread propaganda poster I see.This poster is propaganda to the extreme, and i bet most people have seen it. The problem is basically nothing it claims is remotely true. For example, the first map shows Jewish settlements in a land largely owned by Palestinians. Well firstly, at this point this land is not owned by Palestinians, but by the British government, and it shows all land occupied by the British as Palestinian, it also shows all unowned land as being Palestinian, and it even shows the Negev desert as being Palestinian, despite almost no one living there. And in the records of the time, there is no mention of Palestinians even existing, though some land is owned by Arabs, its not nearly what is shown on the map.The second shows the UN partition plan, however, this plan was rejected by the Arabs, who instead launched a war against the Jews which they lost.The third map, shows Israel after this, with the west bank and Gaza being Palestinian. But again this is false, Gaza was Egyptian and the West Bank was part of Jordan, neither of these countries recognized the Palestinians as a people.The fourth map shows current settlements in the West Bank, and I believe its not totally inaccurate, but I cant attest to its detail. Its also out of date from what I know.The maps also just ignore the parts where Israel actually gave up the entire Sinai as land as part of a settlement with Egypt, which is them giving up more land than they ever took in other ways. I am not a fan of Israeli politics, but its very hard talking about things regarding Israel, when people have such a hate boner for it because of propaganda which simplifies or outright lies about pretty important aspects of the conflict. Not that the Israelis dont do that too.• Suggested ReadingWhy does cultural relativism make no sense?Descriptive cultural relativism makes perfect sense. Cultures are actually different. This has impacts on our lives.Prescriptive cultural relativism, where we say that the differences between cultures are therefore morally benign, is self-refuting. After all, if I am from a culture that is culturally imperialist, then I am correct to be culturally imperialist. Unrestricted comprehension kicks us in the shin again.But just like naive set theory still was useful as long as you didnt try to break it and the concept has been worked on, the fact that a really extremist version of the idea of prescriptist cultural relativism is a bad thing doesnt mean that the idea has no merit.For one, theres the basic reality of human respect. I live my life and you live yours. Neither of us live it perfectly. All too often, those who want to criticize other cultures are happy to do so imperiously, dishing out criticism, while then getting on their high horse when someone criticizes them back. The most extreme version of this is of course imperialism and invasion: One culture deciding that its superiority is so obvious that it can justify taking over another culture by force or other exertion of power. A more restricted form of cultural relativism can remind us to be more humble and respectful, and to try to make sure that other people may not have a good reason of living their lives differently from us.Let me offer a personal example. When I heard of The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down, I thought it was a story of people who were being misled by traditional medicine. But thats not the story. Sure, traditional medicine may not work, but neither did modern medicine for this family. The attitude I had, based in a good idea of testing if youre right and not merely doing things because some authority said you should, actually misled me. Modern medicine failed too, not because its epistemology or ontology is bad but because its practitioners were misled by attitudes that were implicitly culturally imperialist.Josh Hills response is insightful to introduce an additional problem: Why should we ever think there is one single correct culture? That would be as silly as saying that we should build a house the same way whether we live in the desert or the tundra. There are probably ideas that are good to try to bear in mind universally: women and men need to be treated with equity, racism and tribalism are bad things, etc. But cultures evolve and change based on external needs and problems. There may also be ideas that are useful in one environment but not in another. Sure, sexism is never a good idea, but what about, say, wearing a face mask? A culture going through a pandemic may need to very strongly police that response and use cultural forces like shame and confrontation to deal with those who dont comply. But that wouldnt be appropriate at another time.In other words, perhaps culture is a lot like whether we choose to drive on the right side of the road or the left. There may be a number of equally valid cultures that are equally just and fair but are arbitrarily different otherwise.Cultural relativism can remind us that theres lots of practices we have that are fundamentally morally benign that therefore dont matter. Some cultures say that a good belch honors the cook. Others say this is rude. This difference doesnt matter. Aside from potential health concerns with a belch, which are obviously avoidable, its perfectly okay.Similarly, in normal circumstances a bow and a handshake are equally good ways of showing respect and courtesy, but in a pandemic the bow is much smarter. Maybe Western societies need to switch to the Japanese-style bow if were planning on infectious disease being a more serious problem?Cultural relativism makes no sense if one adopts the most extreme version of the idea. But that is true of any idea

Huami Technology Held a Press Conference on August 27, and Amazfit Smart Sports Watch 3 Officially A
Huami Technology Held a Press Conference on August 27, and Amazfit Smart Sports Watch 3 Officially A
This morning, huami technology officially announced that it would hold the 2019 new product Conference on August 27. Then, Huang Wang, CEO of huami technology, posted the invitation letter for the new product Conference on his microblog. Huami technology distributed amazfit one-way wet guide short sleeved T-shirts and amazfit antelope running shoes to the media as physical invitations. The gift box vacated a watch position, which triggered extensive discussion in the media. Huang Wang also explained that this vacancy was actually reserved for the new amazfit intelligent movement watch 3.(invitation letter from Huang Wang, CEO of huami Technology)The theme of huami technology's 2019 new product launch is "run, amazfit! Run!", which is adapted from the classic line "run, Forrest! Run!" of Forrest Gump. With his pure love for sports, Forrest Gump, the protagonist in the film, runs across the United States. No matter how many difficulties and ridicules he encounters, he also doesn't give up. "Run, Forrest! Run!" is the symbolic line that Forrest Gump's mother encourages him, and Forrest Gump can persevere and succeed step by step. This spirit also inspires many people. According to Huang Wang's microblog, the amazfit smart sports watch 3 not only symbolizes huami technology's understanding and adherence to the sports spirit, but also has a taste of paying tribute to Forrest Gump.(theme poster of huami technology's 2019 new product launch)At present, huami technology has become a leading enterprise in the wearable field. With the power of technology, it promotes everyone in the world to enjoy better sports, health and medical services. Sports is undoubtedly an important part of the mission of huami technology. In the past amazfit smart watch products, we can also see a lot of improvements in sports functions.Taking the amazfit smart watch GTR released last month as an example, it provides 12 sports modes such as outdoor running, walking, outdoor cycling, indoor running, indoor cycling, open water swimming, swimming pool swimming, elliptical machine, mountaineering, cross-country running, skiing and exercise. Turn on the corresponding professional sports mode before sports, you can always understand your sports status and help improve sports efficiency.(huami technology amazfit smart watch GTR)Facing the professional sports market, huami technology has also launched several products of amazfit smart sports watches 1, 2 and 2S. It is worth mentioning that it has been a long time since huami technology last updated the smart sports watch series. With more and more attention to sports and healthy life, huami technology still needs to bring more stimulation to the sports watch market and further implement the mission of huami technology. This may also be an important reason why huami technology updates amazfit smart sports watch 3.In terms of function, at present, amazfit smart sports watch 2 has been equipped with 16 sports modes. According to Xiaobian's guess, amazfit smart sports watch 3 will be richer in sports modes to meet the sports monitoring needs of different users. With more powerful functions, the price of amazfit smart sports watch 3 may reach 2500 yuan, which is also the price level of mainstream sports watches at present. As for whether the new product has more professional sports function improvement, we still need to wait for the official answer on August 27.

One is getting higher dbi gain antennas for your ROUTER. The second is adding a higher gain dbi antenna to your adapter (optionally, you can do both and really extend the range). Another is getting a range extender. The higher dbi gain antenna plugged into your router and adapter can really extend your network. Without any obstructions, and 15 dbi gain antennas, you can connect at about 2 miles away. The range extender might be a little cheaper. It plugs into an electrical socket and you run an ethernet cable right into it. This is good if you have quite a few walls in between you and router. Not practical if you do not like wires, you would be better off with the antennas. Regards, Brandon— — — — — —Is it a good idea to download something from an unsecured network?If you see that a wireless network says it's "unsecured", this only means that that wireless network does not have a wireless password. Hence, you or anyone can readily connect to it without entering a password. There is minimal risk of you getting a virus just because of connecting to an "unsecured network", except probably if you go to a website or accidentally downloaded an email that has a virus attached to it - things of that sort. Another risk, although very negligible, is that other people who are connected to that same unsecured network may access your computer files given that you have set your computer files to be on SHARED mode.

Second, if you have a computer connected to the internet near the 360, you can use the laptop as a wireless receiver, then run an ethernet (CAT5) cable from the laptop to your 360. Thirdly, if you have a computer nearby that is connected by a wired connection (cables through the roof etc) then you can use that computer as a router, and plug the xbox into the computer to share connection.

Is Time Travel Possible? Can We Travel Back in Time?
Is Time Travel Possible? Can We Travel Back in Time?
There is no actual "correct." Einstein made a "theory," not a fact. If Einstein's theory is correct, we could theoretically travel back in time but the problem is, we would not be able to go into the future1. What's the similarities between time travel and space travel?The faster your motion through space relative to a stationary reference frame, the more your motion is diverted from your motion through time. In other words, in a very specific sense, we move through time at lightspeed. The faster you move through space, the more your movement through time is diverted by your movement through space. At lightspeed, all your motion through time is diverted by your motion through space. A photon does not experience time. All of its motion through time is diverted by its motion through space. According to relativity theory anyway2. How to travel with cats?Some cats do fine being loose in the car. Try taking them for a little ride (5-10 minutes) and see how they react. I had one cat, a wonderful loving tabby, that I took for a car ride. I was not driving, so she crawled into my lap, squalled, and peed all over my lap! Some years later I had 3 Siamese, and drove from Wisconsin to Montana with them loose in the car, without a bit of a problem. I think its great that you are taking your cats along with you!!!3. Is it Cheap to Travel to Trinidad?It all depends on where you are flying from. If you are in the US it might be better for you to go to Miami. For me in the Caribbean, I would definitely go to Trinidad because the fair is cheaper, the prices are not that bad, I know my way around and I would feel safe. I can just go down town and buy a few doubles and just watch the people go buy sitting on the side of the road. You might not want to do that. I might even buy some shark and bake. Generally, I go to Chaguanas and shop but I might just stay in POS. From the time I take to spend that extra money to go to Miami I could stop right here in Trinidad. I have been there many times and I have not have a problem. It is up to you though because my experiences might be different to yours. All you have to do is to stay where there is lots of people and the same precautions you would take in your country take there. Do not walk around with your purse expose because that would be asking for trouble.4. Is it safe to travel to Israel?Of course it's safe. It's safer than the US. all that stuff you hear is media bullS5. Where to travel in Europe?You can visit Norway :)6. How do I learn about mountain bikes?Firstly, size. Also, go and have a look at a few of their bikes, there is an interesting rating system next to the bikes, indicating the type of riding that it is suitable for. Next, using 1 - 10 scale. But this is based upon components, layout and value for money. MBR is a good place to do some research. For general bike buying, it is advisable to stick to some of the bigger brands. Trek, Scott, Giant, Specialized. You might also consider some of the smaller manufacturers like Claude Butler or Dawes. For components use either SRAM or Shimano gears. Cranks, either Shimano or Truvative, although if you want to throw money at this you could easily look at 2 - 300 on Race Face or Hollowtec. However, many manufacturers use their own brand, eg. Bontager = Trek. However, if you stick with the brands listed above, they will use viable kit, it just depends how much money that you want to spend on your bike. Hard tail or full sus? Firstly, do not spend less than 700 on a full sus. Do not buy an all singing, all dancing 200 bike from Walmart, Tesco, Cycleking, etc. Hard tails tend to be lighter. Also, because you are not spending huge amounts on a rear shock, you get better quality components elsewhere. So, spending 700 on a hardtail will get you a nice race machine with good quality components and viable suspension. You will still get a nice full sus for this price, but the overall quality will not be as high. If you are just hitting well maintained gravel tracks and roads, you do not want your front fork to do too much, so 80mm travel is good. This is also good if you want to race, since you lose less forward power to bouncy forks. For general XC, about 100mm fork travel, although an adjustable fork between 80 and 130 mm is OK. Any fork that starts at 120mm travel will tend to fall into the all mountain category. These will have chunkyer tyres than XC and are better for bounlders and logs etc. Downhill will have a lot of travel up front, with a raked back design. Luck

Nah, Dude save yourself time and money. Just purchase some cheap spray paint. Paint DO NOT VOMIT HERE on your table and everywhere else you DO NOT want puke. Your good to go! Good Luck Beer Pong Guy!1. Help me with my BEER PONG TABLE :) 10 POINTS?beerpongtable.com2. What paint and coating do i use for a beer pong Table?Do what I do when I make/paint things, use trail & error. Try out your paints etc.on a waste piece of ply, much more fun to do it all yourself3. Where can i buy an inflatable beer pong table here in the philippines?Inflatable Beer Pong Table4. how do i make a beer pong table?Advice on building Beer Pong Tables Large areas of paint: The best way to do the larger parts of the design is just spray paint with masking tape pressed down to prevent bleeding. Sanding the table down on places where you expect paint edges to be present also cuts down on bleeding. Ours bled a little on most edges, but we just put down white electrical tape on the points where the paint met the wood and it looked fine. If you have the resources, buy/rent a professional-grade low pressure paint spray gun (check out Home Depot or other home improvement stores) and you should not have any bleeding. Lettering For the more intricate parts, we got some heavy, glossy paper meant for LaserJet printers, and cut them out by hand. It was a pain, but it was the best way to do it. You can probably get away with thinner paper. Basically, thinner paper is more likely to let the polyurethane soak through, but it's also less likely to stick out of the poly (you can run your finger over the letters in our first table and feel a tiny ridge). If I were you I would get heavy paper, and then just poly the hell out of it (5 coats, wait 24 hours between each coat). Oh, and get a clearcoat/polyurethane that goes on clear. The white parts on your table (if any) will get a brownish tint otherwise. Graphics For the graphics on our basketball court table (ACC text and the flag) we went to the actual court and just took some digital pictures. With a little help in Photoshop, we were then able to get the graphics the right size and shape (for example, taking a picture of the "ACC" meant that it was kind of like a trapezoid, with the top part of the text not as wide as the bottom, since I took a picture from an angle as opposed to a bird's eye view). Anywho, for those we just went to Kinko's and printed it out on their good computer and color printer. Then we glued it on and polyeurethaned over it. Keep in mind you can always look for graphics online and just print them out (Google has an Image search feature that works well). Sturdy construction We do not have any plans drawn out (well, not on my computer anyway), but it's pretty easy to make a sturdy table. If you've got over $150 allocated for this, do not spare any expense on quality. 3/4" pine plywood is the sturdiest non-expensive board you can get. It will come in an 8'x4' section, but feel free to cut it down (but 8x4 is a nice size). If you've got money to waste, you can even get 3/4" oak. It will look better and is sturdier. You are going to want to build a sturdy frame underneath the table. A complete border of 2x4s should lay underneath the plywood. This not only looks good, but provides most of the anti-warping support. You are also going to want to spend the extra couple of bucks for two more 8' lengths of 2x4s to lay lengthwise along the underneath of the table (so you will have something like four 8-foot 2x4s underneath the table lengthwise, and then two 4-foot lengths at the edge). Legs are pretty easy. We use 4x4's, which is sturdy as hell but does not look great. If you paint them, they might look fine. In any event, a 3/4" plywood with the said frame underneath will never warp, and can even handle a few drunk college boys standing on top of it (not that I would suggest that). Misc Also, get trim for the edge of the table. It's $1/ft. and well worth it. It makes the table look much better, and even stops the occasional ball from rolling off. And to make sure that the table can handle all the beer that will get spilled, use a ton of polyurethane/clearcoat. If you have the time, do over 5 coats (10 is probably the most you will need). Follow the directions on can, but you should most likely not do more than one coat a day (bubbles could form if it does not dry all the way).
What Else to Do on PS3?
What Else to Do on PS3?
What else to do on PS3?Start renting movies. That's mostly what I use mine for these days. Do you want to know what other games you should buy? First I agree with the guy above me about the Assassins' Creed games and Uncharted 2. They are great games. Here is a list of other games you should check out. Buy them used from gamestop because you have 7 days to return them in case you do not like them or just rent them first. Batman Arkham Asylum-best comic book adaption and a must play Marvel Alliance 1 and 2- great to play with friends, up to 4 Red Dead Redemption-must have single player game, has online too but the single player is better The God of War Collection and God of War 3 Castlevania: Lord of Shadows- similar style to God of War Darksiders-similar style to God of War Mass Effect 2-must have single player Dead Space 1 and 2- best sci-fi horror Fear 2: Project Origin-more sci-fi horror Silent Hill Homecoming- eeriest horror Condemned 2- Metal Gear Solid 4-lot's of long cut-scenes but terrific story and gameplay. especially the boss battles Resistance 2 Army of Two: 40th Day-much better online but can play co-op on same screen Borderlands- it is better played online with a friend or 2 Heavenly Sword-short game but stunning production Saints Row 2- looser more over-the-top style of GTA Oblivion-best rpg Brutal Legend-great if you like heavy metal music and lore Transformers War for Cybertron Red Faction Guerrilla- the best destruction engine that allows you to break almost anything Fallout 3-must have single player game Prince of Persia Valkyria Chronicles-amazing game that is often overlooked Far Cry 2-slightly different fps than most with great African setting and good story Heavy Rain-best adult psychological thriller Pure- best atv racing NBA 2k 11-best basketball Fight Night Round 4-much better than 3, and the new Fight Night Champions Just Cause 2-adrenaline rush, open world gameplay Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time-best in the series The Sly Collection Civilization Revolution-great strategy Sonic Ultimate Genesis Collection-over 40 classic titles Soulcaliber 4-best 3d fighter The Orange Box- 4 great games in one Yakuza 3- Japanese mob story with fun side challenges— — — — — —Do you play any special floor time games with your baby such as "pattycake or peek-a-boo"? Any other games?I usually crawl behind him and he looks right behind me to see if I am following him and then he goes faster and starts laughing cause he thinks its funny. He also has this activity table where I just take off the legs and while he is sitting down we play with it together— — — — — —Is MGS4 worth getting a Playstation 3 for even if your not interested in other games but a fan of MGS series ?MGS4 is suppose to be the final chapter of Metal gear solid series at least for snake it is. This game was probably the main reason many people decided to get a ps3 just because of this game. This game is a visual masterpiece and the gameplay is aweesomee. This game has everything that a movie has and at the same time you are playing it. It has suspense,action, some humor and overall a fantastic conclusion (in my opinion) to the MGS franchise. This game is honestly a must have for the ps3. The only down side of this game is if you are one of those people who could give a rats *** about the story line and just want to play then you wont get the full experience. Some people say that movie scenes are way to long ,but thats because if you never played the MGS franchise it tries to explain everything and so that it basically breaks down the whole MGS franchise. I played that game twice already and probably going to play it again once i get it back from my friend. To me it was a piece of art and action packed game ,but everyone has the same opinion as i do. So its up to you man— — — — — —Would the video game industry be the same without Mario? What other games has Mario influenced?The video game industry would be VERY different w/o Mario. Mario is an icon in his own name. Super Mario Brothers would not exist.the Nintendo would not have been developed (or have made millions of dollars), arcade games would not be the same, Donkey Kong would need someone else to throw barrels at, Sonic would need someone else to copy (then create his own multi-million dollar franchise).Mario has influenced the game world greatly. .If Mario were gone. .through a VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY long series of gaming relationships.Halo would not exist.NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
How to Protect Data on IOT Devices
How to Protect Data on IOT Devices
Before obtaining internet of things devices or solutions, please first ensure their design security. In some environments, this may not be feasible due to factors such as traditional products, price points, or simply because you don't have enough details on how to protect them.If the provider is unable to provide sufficient information about device security methods, it should reconsider purchasing IOT devices. If the IOT device is already in place, security can be established around it.In addition, it should also ensure that manufacturers of Internet of things devices can provide timely patches and updates for the whole lifeline of the device. After the product entered the market, many security vulnerabilities were found. Since the service life of IOT devices may be as long as 10 to 20 years, their manufacturers should be able to provide you with patches and updates during this period.Here are eight effective ways to protect data on IOT devices.1. Learn about the advantages of connecting to the InternetDon't connect smart devices to the Internet just because they have functions. First, you should check the functions available in your device without connecting it to the Internet. You may find that your smart device has good functions and can be used without the Internet. In this case, it is best to use the device offline. This is a good way to protect your safety without spending any money.2. Use auxiliary networkMost of the time, your WiFi router can create multiple networks to help you create restricted access for family and guests. You should also consider creating an additional network for IOT devices. When accessing a connection through a smart device, this will help you prevent unauthorized access to sensitive data. Having a separate connection to act as a buffer will help ensure that no external entities are allowed to access your shared files and other types of encrypted data.3. Continue to change the passwordIt is important that you constantly change your passwords on your PC, personal accounts, and mobile devices. It should also be remembered that it is equally important to change the password used on IOT devices. Use these passwords carefully and ensure that each device has a unique password. You can use the password manager to remember your password, or even use traditional pen and paper methods. Remember that each password must be changed twice a year.4. Do not enable universal plug and playAlmost all smart devices have a function called UPnP. With this feature, different devices can find each other and connect to each other. This feature makes devices more convenient because you do not need to configure each device separately. However, you need to know that the UPnP protocol uses the local network for connection, so it is easy to be accessed from the outside. In the event of an attack, external entities may be able to access multiple devices at the same time. Therefore, it is best to turn off the UPnP function on each device.5. Update each deviceYou should enable automatic update and there is no automatic update. Please check the firmware update regularly. This is required because it is the way to install a new security patch on the device. As hackers and other intruders continue to come up with new ways to invade IOT devices, technology manufacturers continue to strive to deal with such threats with security measures. Therefore, ensuring that all devices are updated will help to enhance the security of the whole system.6. Reduce the use of cloud technologyAs you know, most IOT providers provide free cloud storage with their devices. The reason is that it is considered an emerging technology. However, this technology has some potential disadvantages. The first is that if you want to access the data stored in the cloud, you need an active connection. Without a connection, you can't access the information. Second, when you access your account, outsiders may invade your connection. So before you start using the cloud, make sure you are familiar with how to protect data security and thoroughly understand privacy measures.7. Pay attention to the storage location of wearable devicesWearable devices use WiFi connections to collect and store personal data so that they can provide you with accurate analysis in the future. Therefore, when you bring a wearable device to a public place, because it is connected to public WiFi, anyone connected to the same network can immediately access your data. Therefore, it is best to avoid wearing wearable devices with shared networks. In case you really want to use it, make sure to disable it when you are not using the device.8. Avoid using risky equipmentSome IOT devices need to be continuously connected to the Internet to operate effectively. Others don't bring much efficiency to your life as you think. Therefore, it is a good habit to evaluate the practicability of the equipment from time to time. If you think they don't help your life, or they seem risky, it's best to discard them. In addition, if only one device can replace multiple other devices, invest in the device. This is because the fewer equipment used, the fewer risk factors.
