Naval Academy puts stories to names with virtual memorial

They perished in the exact same crash as somebody who is already in the memorial hall,” McConnell said.

McConnell said he’s written entries for several dozen men and women he believes should be in the memorial hall.

Without family members like Harrison reaching out, the task of telling each sailor’s story wasn’t easy for McConnell.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - To someone visiting the Naval Academy Memorial Hall, Lt. John Franklin might just be a name carved in the stone.

As a new part of their Link in the Chain program this fall, midshipmen in the Class of 2023 were each assigned a name from the hall and have been tasked with finding as much as they can about that person.

Singapore otters’ lockdown antics spark backlash

With the streets empty, the creatures have been spotted hanging out by a shopping center, scampering through the lobby of a hospital and even feasting on pricey fish stolen from a pond.

The otters’ more frequent forays onto the streets of Singapore are part of a global trend triggered by virus lockdowns, with animals increasingly slipping cover to explore the streets of some of the world’s biggest cities.

There are estimated to be about 90 otters in Singapore, making up 10 families, and appearances at popular tourist sites around the city-state’s downtown waterfront have transformed them into local celebrities.

Singapore’s otters, long adored by the city-state’s nature lovers, are popping up in unexpected places during the coronavirus lockdown but their antics have angered some and even sparked calls for a cull.

He also said many recent sightings were likely of the same family of smooth-coated otters, which have been searching for a new home along the city’s rivers.

Sweden’s coronavirus experiment has well and truly failed

A spokesperson for Sweden's public health agency says that herd immunity was never a deliberate part of the plan – either way, a recent study showed that only 7.3 per cent of people in Stockholm, the epicentre of the epidemic in Sweden, had developed antibodies indicating that they had already been infected with Covid-19.

“The biggest problem in Sweden is there is really only one voice – that voice is the public health agency, and in particular Anders Tegnell,” Einhorn says.

Despite recent murmurings of disquiet, the agency remains broadly popular among the public – and Tegnell has become something of a cult figure in Sweden, with toasts on his birthday and people getting tattoos of his face.

Some argued that Sweden was a unique case because of its demographics, or because of the fact that more people live in single-person households, and multi-generational family units are less common than they are in countries like Italy.

There are simple measures that could be taken to lessen the effect of a second wave even without a lockdown – face masks for people in crowded spaces and for those working in the elderly (about half of Sweden’s deaths have been in care homes), and more testing and tracing.

Lenovo Flex 5 2-in-1 with AMD Ryzen 5 4500U, 16 GB of RAM, and 256 GB SSD now on sale for $600 USD

This particular mid-range CPU should offer a performance level roughly in between that of the Core i7-8565U and Core i7-10710U — two high-end Intel processors found on some flagship laptops like the Dell XPS 13 series.

Users have been keeping a close eye on these new models since the Zen 2 CPU series is expected to offer similar or better performance than any Intel 9th gen or 10th gen U-class processor while costing noticeably less.

Lenovo have been championing the Zen 2 series with more and more options these past few weeks and the Flex 5 is the latest.

The budget 15.6-inch Lenovo convertible will come with a processor that's just as fast or faster than the Core i7-8565U as found on Ultrabooks almost twice the price.

The main drawback to the system is that the Flex family belongs to Lenovo's budget range of affordable 2-in-1 laptops.

SpaceX Demo-2 Launch is a Success, Astronauts Begin 19-Hour Journey to the ISS

Assuming the launch does go according to plan, it will be a 9-minute ride for the crew into orbit and about a 19-hour flight in the Crew Dragon to the international space station.

With rain hitting the Falcon 9 and the Dragon capsule on the launchpad, we just heard from the crew that the weather is expected to clear by launch time.

Site technicians are working from the outside of the Crew Dragon capsule to close the hatch and seal the astronauts into the craft until launch.

After making their final goodbyes to family and friends through the phone at the top of the launch platform, both astronauts have now loaded into the Crew Dragon capsule.

Both astronauts have taken the elevator 77 meters (255 feet) into the air — to the top of the crew platform — as they prepare to load into the Crew Dragon capsule.

Artist Imagines Simpsons Characters In Real Life

This is a series of 3D models created by Turkish character artist Hossein Diba imagining the Simpsons family (plus Mr. Burns) in real life.

As you can see, Marge is not nearly as alluring in realistic form as she is in cartoon form.

I'm kidding, Marge could never not be a stone cold fox, even without those bedroom googly eyes of hers.

I'm just thankful Hossein didn't decide to do Marge's sisters too.

Keep going for a video of each family member, and Mr. Burns, as well as a video of Hossein actually creating the Homer model.

Go read this Forbes investigation alleging Kylie Jenner isn’t actually a billionaire

Jenner’s response tackles Peterson-Withorn and Berg’s reporting, but barely scratches the deeper analysis from the piece: the reason it seemed so vital for Jenner, and her team, to be seen as a billionaire.

Jenner’s company still pulled in revenue, and Kylie Cosmetics was still a staple product within the beauty world, but it just was perhaps not as popular as the Kardashian-Jenner team projected.

How did Forbes, the same magazine that initially declared Jenner a self-made billionaire, discover that she wasn’t?

A new investigation by Forbes has discovered that Kylie Jenner, who Forbes named a self-made billionaire in March 2019, isn’t actually a billionaire.

Peterson-Withorn and Berg’s investigation gets into why Jenner and her family felt like they needed to go the whole nine yards to have a 22-year-old land the cover of Forbes magazine as a self-made billionaire — a term that launched a million eye rolls around the world.

A woman wondered what Barbies would look like in quarantine. Her answer is amazing

Over the years, Mattel has expanded its line of Barbies to accommodate more realistic standards.

Created by Tanya Ruiz, Quarantine Barbies (which are not for sale) cover the gamut of self-isolation: There’s the flour-covered Bread Baking version, complete with bagels and pastries and accessories; the New Hobby edition, featuring a Barbie who’s taken up everything from guitar lessons to knitting; the Quarreling Couple set, with Barbie and Ken in desperate need of counseling; and more.

Ruiz began creating her own modified Barbies and sharing them online under the title “Barbie Gets Real” in 2019.

“I didn’t want my daughters to grow up thinking that their worth was based on the way they looked and that they needed to look like a blond-haired, blue-eyed Barbie,” Ruiz said in an interview with Yahoo late last year.

Ruiz had been modifying dolls to resemble her and her family, but she got the idea for her new Quarantine line from a 2011 segment on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where DeGeneres created her own realistic Barbies, including Homewrecker Barbie, Distracted Driver Barbie, and Hoarder Barbie.

Hulu’s Ramy takes cringe comedy to a dark and funny place

In its second season, Ramy, Hulu’s award-winning comedy created by star Ramy Youssef, is about being a believer and how hard a thing that is to be in America.

As that last part suggests, Ramy season 2 is often a very dark show, much more so than its first, which already had plenty of bite accompanying its comedy.

In one episode, he unexpectedly runs into a former adult film star after spending several episodes getting off to porn; in another, his desire to absolve himself leads to him pushing Sheikh Ali to welcome a man he barely knows into their mosque — a vet with PTSD that ultimately results in tragedy.

Much like in season 1, the series liberally expands its scope beyond Ramy, with episodes dedicated to his family and friends, taking every opportunity to contrast and complicate Ramy’s limited view with another perspective.

In being so openly messy, Ramy attempts to resist the urge to characterize it as the Muslim American comedy, rooting itself in a cast of characters that have experiences that can be universal to its community — most notably, islamophobia, along with a more general American hostility toward immigrants — but also with significant flaws of their own.

5GBioShield: A USB key that promises to protect against 5G for almost US$450

Using "proprietary holographic nano-layer" and "quantum biological shielding" technologies, 5GBioShield claims that its USB key will protect you against harmful 5G radiation.

However, Pen Test Partners has confirmed that the 5GBioShield USB key is real and 5GBioShield is shipping units to people for a minimum of £349.60 (~US$430.74) including shipping.

According to 5GBioShield, its USB key provides the following: ...protection for your home and family, thanks to the wearable holographic nano-layer catalyser, which can be worn or placed near to a smartphone or any other electrical, radiation or EMF emitting device.

Apparently the result of "research of several decades in multiple countries", the 5GBioShield USB key is nothing more than a 128 MB pen drive.

In fact, the 5GBioShield bears an uncanny resemblance to the Crystal USB sold by USB2U.

HP launches new EliteBook laptops, ZBook Firefly mobile workstations

The new EliteBook x360 convertibles are due to ship in July, with the x360 830 G7 starting at $1,419 and the other models with pricing to be announced closer to their availability.

Joining the 1030 G7 and 1040 G7 is the new x360 830 G7, a more affordable 13.3-inch alternative that features the six-core Intel CPUs only in higher-end configurations, but is notable for its inclusion of 4x4 LTE antennas, which HP is hailing as the first for a "mainstream" business convertible.

In particular, the 13.3-inch EliteBook x360 1030 G7 and 14-inch 1040 G7 convertible laptops receive updates that include a slight reduction in size that results in up to an 89-percent ratio of screen to body, which HP claims is a class-leading figure.

No doubt recent events have kept notebook sales afloat, and HP is looking to capitalize on the telecommuting surge with its announcement of a fleet of new business laptops, including a refresh of its EliteBook lineup and an expansion of the ZBook mobile workstation family.

Last fall HP debuted the Elite Dragonfly business laptop -- as light as its name suggests -- and it's sticking with the winged-insect product naming with the new ZBook Firefly G7 mobile workstations.

Women Have Always Worked From Home

In the past several decades, as women’s employment has risen to match men’s, men have not proportionately increased their share of work on the home front.

I have lost count of the Zoom meetings I have had with women who apologize for having to leave to take care of their children—as if there were something unprofessional about being a parent—or of conversations with friends who thought that the Covid lockdowns would be the moment when the men they love finally realized how much effort is involved in taking basic care of a family.

+++ The home, for a great many women, and particularly for a great many mothers, is a hostile work environment.

It is only in the past century and a half that the idea of “separate spheres” of work for men and women took hold.

And it is still culturally acceptable for men to leave that work to women.
