Maze Alpha: безрамочный смартфон с чипом Helio P25

Идея смартфона с почти отсутствующими рамками по трём сторонам корпуса из четырёх не так уж и нова — подобное решение было предложено ещё в 2014 году компанией Sharp. Вторую жизнь этот дизайн обрёл после того, как Xiaomi выпустила Mi MIX, а уж за ней последовали другие производители, среди которых встречаются совсем молодые бренды, и Maze – как раз один из них. О Maze Alpha мы уже рассказывали вкратце в одной из наших апрельских новостей, однако тогда характеристики новинки были представлены не полностью. Теперь же у нас есть возможность более детально познакомиться с аппаратом, 6-дюймовый экран которого умещается в корпусе, по габаритам сопоставимым с 5,5-дюймовым устройством.

Why it’s awesome to be awkward | Ty Tashiro

Nerds are all the rage. They may be social misfits but ‘awkwards’ see detail in glorious TechnicolourA few years ago, “awkward” became the term du jour for the socially clumsy. When I looked at the number of people who Googled the question “Why am I so awkward?”, I saw a spike that remained consistent for five years. The sharp rise in people’s interest in awkwardness may partly reflect the trendiness of the word, but also that more people are feeling socially awkward and wonder why that might be the case.Today, it’s cool to be a nerd. We can’t get enough of awkward physicists on television shows like The Big Bang Theory or awkward millennial sex scenes on Girls. When Star Wars: The Force Awakens opened, fans proudly posted their cosplay photos on social media with self-aware hashtags like #awkward and #cantstop #wontstop. Continue reading...

Zbigniew Brzezinski, Carter's National Security Adviser, Dies At 89

His death was announced by his daughter, Mika Brzezinski, who’s a co-host on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program. He died at a hospital in Falls Church, Virginia, The New York Times reported. “My father passed away peacefully tonight,” his daughter wrote in an Instagram post. “He was known to his friends as Zbig, to his grandchildren as Chief and to his wife as the enduring love of her life. I just knew him as the most inspiring, loving and devoted father any girl could ever have. I love you, Dad.” My father passed away peacefully tonight. He was known to his friends as Zbig, to his grandchildren as Chief and to his wife as the enduring love of her life. I just knew his as the most inspiring, loving and devoted father any girl could ever have. I love you Dad❤️ #HailToTheChief A post shared by Mika Brzezinski (@mikabrzezinski) on May 26, 2017 at 7:09pm PDT Carter issued a statement late Friday, calling Brzezinski a “brilliant, dedicated and loyal,” adding: “I will miss him.” He said “Zbig” was a “superb public servant” as well as “inquisitive, innovative and a natural choice to be my national security adviser.” NEW: Jimmy Carter releases statement following death of Zbigniew Brzezinski, calling him "a superb public servant." https://t.co/E1Jh8sbeU8 pic.twitter.com/7n5jC0Q6FZ— ABC News (@ABC) May 27, 2017 To the world, the Polish-born Brzezinski was a steely, opinionated power in the Carter White House, from 1977 to 1981, who left a big footprint in world affairs. He helped guide Carter during the Iran hostage crisis, when 52 Americans were held in Tehran for 444 days, and he supported billions of dollars in military aid to help Islamic fighters battle the 1979 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.  Brzezinski was instrumental in the doomed 1980 commando raid to rescue the hostages in Iran, who were held by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini’s forces after the overthrow of the shah. The mission never reached the hostages, and eight servicemen died when their aircraft crashed. (The hostages were finally released on the day Ronald Reagan became president.) But Brzezinski also aided Carter in achieving the historic Camp David Accords between Israel and Egypt in 1978. Brzezinski was a staunch foe of the Soviets who instead encouraged developing ties and normalizing relations with China. His single-minded foreign policy path often put him at odds with Secretary of State Cyrus Vance, who ultimately left his post in 1980 after the failed hostage rescue. Brzezinski first came to government work in 1966 after earning a doctorate in political science from Harvard University and teaching there and at Columbia University. The author of multiple books, he remained active, opinionated and outspoken to the end. He was a sharp critic of President Donald Trump, whose foreign policies he skewered as muddled. America needs “clarity of thought and leadership that projects optimism and progress,” he wrote earlier this year in a New York Times opinion piece with researcher Paul Wasserman. “‘Make America Great Again’ and ‘America First’ are all very well as bumper stickers, but the foreign policy of the United States needs to be more than a campaign slogan.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Did You Hear The One About Al Franken in 2020?

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); WASHINGTON ― Al Franken and I have been friends for 30 years, so I got right to the point. “Will you ever run for president?” I demanded to know in an interview with the 66-year-old Minnesota Democratic senator this week. There was an ever so slight, theatrical pause. “Aaah … no,” he then answered, letting loose his patented chest-bursting cackle. “I’m going to ask [Democratic National Committee Chairman] Tom Perez to start a primary just for vice president. I would run for that.” “Really?” I asked humorlessly.  “NO! I wouldn’t! That was a joke! See, I thought it was a funny idea because I would be the only one running in that primary. Get it?”  Got it.  An eerie amount of Franken’s career arc from comedian to politician has consisted of life imitating art and/or vice versa. It’s often hard to know what is meant to be a joke and what isn’t.  This isn’t even the first time Franken has thought about running for president. But in the past it was about comedy, not politics.  He and I discussed the topic at D.C.’s Palm Restaurant 20 years ago. He was planning to write a book making fun of presidential politics. His method would be to chronicle his own imaginary, victorious campaign and his later resignation in disgrace.  Along with the scholarly über-pundit Norman Ornstein of the American Enterprise Institute and Mandy Grunwald, one of the Democrats’ leading media consultants, I became a Franken “adviser” for the day.  We brainstormed our way to a “platform” that was vaguely realistic but also risibly trivial: exorbitant ATM fees. Al would “run” on a crusade to reduce them, and would sweep the nation.  Which, in his mind and in the narrative, is what he did in the resulting book, published in 1999, called, Why Not Me? The Inside Story of the Making and Unmaking of the Franken Presidency. It’s a side-splitting tale from beginning to end, and a sendup of every absurdity and hypocrisy of our way of public life.  Now, on the eve of the publication of his new, facetiously named autobiography, Al Franken, Giant of the Senate, the presidential question is out there. This time it is all in real life.  The book is a witty, candid account of his life so far, including his wife Franni’s battle with alcoholism, the joy and pain of writing comedy, the moments of crisis and doubt in his difficult first Senate campaign, and his struggle to balance his need to make audiences laugh with the serious work of the Senate.  Out Tuesday, it has prompted speculation about whether he might run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020. Publications from The Washington Post to Politico to People are asking the question. After all, if he were to run, the new book could serve as what consultants call “inoculation” ― surfacing the “worst” material early to lessen its impact later.  Especially in an era when politics has become almost interchangeable with entertainment (and even comedy), there is a weird  logic ― something vaguely approaching destiny ― to the idea that he now at least should consider stepping even higher.  “Trump has so devalued the presidency that people are coming up to me and saying, ‘Al, of course you can do it. … And I say, ‘No! You can’t compare me to him and just say, yeah, you can do it.”  But is the idea realistic? Well, Franken and I have been friends ever since we met at the Iowa caucuses in 1988, and even I have to admit that at first glance the answer is no.  After all, in a three-decade comedy career, Franken appeared half-naked on “Saturday Night Live”; said beastly, crude things at 2 a.m. in the writers’ room; and, in the early years, did a fair amount of cocaine.  Franken is an emotional person, with the ups and downs of a stage performer. He yearns to be liked and can be stubborn to a fault.  Relatively late in life, he has risen fast in politics through his lacerating writing, talking and gift for humor as a rhetorical weapon. He’s never really managed much besides his own career, which actually has been managed by the saintly and ever-patient Franni Franken, to whom Al has been married for 41 years.  function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_2'),onPlayerReadyVidible); Franken does not mention Why Not Me? in his autobiographical Giant of the Senate. Why? Well, it wasn’t a bestseller. More seriously, he wants to run for a third term as a senator in his home state of Minnesota in 2020. He also has a good relationship with the state’s senior Democratic senator, Amy Klobuchar, who definitely IS running for the presidency.  “If Al showed any interest in the nomination it would get very awkward with Amy very fast,” a leading Minnesota political expert told me.  And yet…  In the age of Trump, Franken is a force. With his sharp mind and the presentational skills he learned in comedy, he has become a progressive star by eviscerating Trump and his circle in Congress, including, famously, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. The comparisons with Trump are telling. The president is a performer who intuitively “knows the room” and defeats foes with words. His feel for TV and social media is unrivaled.  Franken in that sense is the anti-Trump.  He has the theatrical gifts and media experience that Trump has. But Franken studies his briefs with maniacal intensity. He always knows precisely what he is talking about. He is honest to a fault by political standards; indeed, his humor is largely based on “kidding on the square,” which means to say something funny that is also true. He is a devotedly square family man with one wife for life, two adoring kids and a small but growing brood of grandchildren. His idea of fun is to be with them all. He is diligent about spending as much time as he can in Minnesota.  There is no Minnesota bean feed too small for Franken to attend. He is vigilant about his home state’s interests. Like his “SNL” character Stuart Smalley, he genuinely likes people and earnestly wants them to like him back. They usually do. No bridge-burner in the Senate, Franken in his book eviscerates the deeply loathed Sen. Ted Cruz (no one in the Senate would object) but otherwise is careful to tell only the most anodyne stories, all of which he cleared (as dictated by custom) with the members involved.  He actually enjoys legislating. To that end, he is almost obsessively polite about Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, with whom he disagrees on virtually every matter but whom he has the good sense to flatter personally. He has an even better relationship with Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer.  Franken can become a power in the Senate if the Democrats ever take it back.  But what about the Big Job?  I asked him whether the thought he could handle it, and he gave a long answer that indicated he had in fact pondered the topic.  “I know what a heavy job it is. That’s all I can say,” he began. He used Syria as an example. When he first heard that President Bashar Assad had used chemical weapons to kill civilians in Syria, Franken said, his first reaction while at the state fair in Minnesota was to demand swift retaliation. But when it seemed that the Senate might have to vote to authorize such retaliation, the studious and detail-oriented Franken immersed himself in briefings and documents and saw the another side. More innocents would be killed as Assad used “human shields” at all the sites the United States would target. “The president has to make those kinds of decisions all the time,” Franken said earnestly, “and I am not sure that I would be terribly comfortable having that job for four to eight years.” That doesn’t sound like a flat no to me. type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related Coverage + articlesList=59247859e4b034684b107a41,58c500d6e4b0ed71826d20f0,58b894fee4b0eff615d023e0 -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Что нужно съесть, чтобы стать умнее

Еще со школы помню, что всегда говорили перед экзаменами - кушай шоколад, чтобы голова лучше работала. Воспринимал это как ерунду какую то.А тут обнаруживаю, что оказывается есть некие пищевые продукты, поедая которые ученые на полном серьезе утверждают, что можно стать умнее.РозмаринРозмарин стали покупать активнее после того, как исследование показало, что это растение может повысить умственную работоспособность. Что очень важно для тысяч студентов, готовящихся к сдаче экзаменов.В магазинах Холланд и Барретт, торгующими здоровыми продуктами питания в Великобритании, на 270% расширилась продажа эфирного масла розмарина, после того как ученые из Нортумбрийского университета выяснили, что ученики, которые работали в классе с ароматом масла розмарина, добились лучших результатов в тестах на проверку памяти.Люси Поттингер, заведующая отделом косметики и ароматерапии в Холланд и Барретт, сказала, что большинство клиентов — это «родители, которые надеются повысить шансы своих детей на успешную сдачу экзаменов».ЧерникаВ 2015 году исследователи из Университета Рединга обнаружили, что сок лесной черники улучшает память и концентрацию у детей младшего школьного возраста.Профессор Клер Уильямс обнаружил, что дети, которые выпивали полтора стакана черничного сока, лучше справились с тестами, где требовалось вспомнить слова, и где при выполнении заданий важно было не отвлекаться.Уильямс объяснил это тем, что в чернике содержится антоцианин, органическое соединение, активизирующее работу мозга. «Мы давно знаем, что антоцианин хорошо влияет на работу мозга у взрослых, но теперь мы можем видеть благоприятное влияние антоцианина на память и внимание у детей».МороженоеХоть и не все с ним согласны, но японский ученый Йошихико Кога утверждает, что съедая мороженое на завтрак, вы становитесь умнее.Профессор Кога обнаружил, что потребление мороженого улучшило концентрацию внимания и умственную работоспособность его испытуемых. Участники эксперимента ели мороженое сразу же после пробуждения, а затем они должны были выполнить определенные задания.По сравнению с теми, кто не ел мороженое, испытуемые профессора действительно демонстрировали более быструю реакцию и лучше обрабатывали информацию.РыбаИсследование 2011 года, проведенное британскими учеными, показало, что употребление в пищу продуктов, богатых омега-3, таких как жирная рыба, увеличивает приток крови к мозгу, что приводит к улучшению показателей во время умственных задач.В ходе эксперимента, в котором участвовали добровольцы в возрасте 18-35 лет, испытуемые также продемонстрировали лучшую реакцию и меньший уровень усталости после выполнения задачи.Автор исследования доктор Филиппа Джексон сказала: «Данные свидетельствуют о том, что регулярное потребление жирной рыбы или добавок с содержанием жиров омега-3, может предотвратить снижение умственных способностей и слабоумие».Апельсиновый сокУченые из Университета Рединга предложили 37 взрослым ежедневно потреблять 500 мл апельсинового сока в течение восьми недель. К концу эксперимента у испытуемых на 8% улучшились познавательные функции.Соавтор исследования д-р Даниэль Лампорт объяснил это улучшение природными «флавоноидами», присутствующими в апельсиновом соке.Лампорт сказал: «Ежедневное употребление богатых флавоноидами фруктов и овощей может существенно помочь здоровью мозга».ШпинатИсследователи из университета Раша в Чикаго наблюдали за питанием и умственными способностями около 950 пожилых людей в течение 10 лет. Они обнаружили, что у тех, кто ел зеленые листовые овощи, такие как шпинат, по крайней мере, один раз в день, в значительно меньшей степени наблюдались нарушения умственной деятельности, чем у тех, кто этого не делал.Ведущая исследовательница Марта Клэр Моррис сказала, что листовая зелень так благотворно влияет на мозг, вероятно, из-за высокого содержания витаминов и питательных веществ, таких как витамин К, лютеин, фолат и бета-каротин.Ну что, как вы думаете? Опять исследования "британских ученых"? Тем более шоколада то нет!!!источникиhttp://www.telegraph.co.uk/food-and-drink/news/brain-food-things-should-eating-keep-mind-sharp-besides-rosemary/Для того, чтобы быть в курсе выходящих постов в этом блоге есть канал Telegram.
