Animal Crossing Is Letting Me Wear $1000 Jackets I Could Never Afford

Considering you could buy a Switch, a copy of Animal Crossing, a TV, sound system and still have more cash left over than if you’d bought an actual Acronym jacket, that’s a good deal!

An Acronym jacket is an enormous flex, but it’s one that comes at a price, because if you can ever get one new (they sell out quickly whenever released a few times a year on Acronym’s site), they’ll cost you well over $1000.

If you don’t know them by name, or their collaborations with brands like Nike and Stone Island, you might know them by their work in video games: they designed Adam’s jacket in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and featured prominently in Death Stranding’s rainy, apocalyptic wardrobes (including a cameo by Hugh himself).

And few pieces of techwear are as expensive, or as desirable, as Acronym jackets.

While it’s perfectly expected and cool that people are using Animal Crossing’s design tools to create unique and interesting clothes, some players are simply using them to craft recreations of outfits they already own.

Entrepreneurs teach business and the arts

Kimberly Parent of Saskatoon Salsa and Christine Marie of Awasis Boutique have joined forces to create “ayishiinoo” - a Michif word meaning Indigenous - to mentor and inspire other entrepreneurs in the Indigenous community.

So, I offer dance workshops and Christine offers sewing and fashion workshops,” Parent said.

They also offer fun workshops incorporating business with dance and sewing workshops.

They want to get out into communities and share their knowledge and enthusiasm to help others turn interests and passions into businesses.

“When you grow up not seeing people that look like you being role models, when someone asked me who my role models were, I had to stop and think and I didn’t know,” said Christine, adding that it’s important to create opportunities for the younger generation to have those Indigenous female role models.

Rihanna makes history as first 'British Vogue' cover star wearing a durag

"The tainted fabric has been reclaimed as a symbol of black beauty, a signifier of style worn on the streets, the catwalk, the red carpet… And now, in a powerful mic-drop moment, the durag is making its first appearance on the May 2020 cover of British Vogue, worn by Rihanna," she adds.

Contributing editor Funmi Fetto explains in a Vogue article the significance of Rihanna wearing the cloth, which was used in the time of slavery as a method to "suppress black women’s beauty and distinguish their lowly, inferior status as labourers."

This month, the Grammy-winning artist stars on the cover of the iconic fashion magazine wearing a durag — a first in British Vogue's 104-year history.

Now that Rihanna is an honourary Londoner, she should probably grace the cover of British Vogue every month (in my opinion, at least).

In the Vogue interview, Rihanna talked about her "imminent" new album, how she parties in London, and what she plans to do in 10 years' time.

Good Job! lets you chaotically smash through your office complex from home

You start off — literally — at the bottom, working your way up through the company by completing puzzles in the charming, isometric office environments.

In theory, the goal is to accomplish your objective as quickly as possible, while causing a minimum amount of property damage to your father’s company.

The game seems to be equally willing to reward both styles of play But what I actually did was stretch a plug across a doorway and use it to fling the projector through a wall, a plate glass window, and the unsuspecting audience below in a show of rubble.

Why Positive Test for Prince Charles Poses a Challenge for the Royal Family

The present royal family actually owes its status to a virus: the death of the Duke of Clarence in 1892 after an influenza epidemic meant that his intended, Princess Mary of Teck, had to marry his younger brother, the Duke of York, who in 1910 succeeded to the throne as King George V. Showing leadership was so much easier in wartime.

In the second world war, George VI made sure it was known the royal family were living on the same rations as everyone else – the young princesses Elizabeth and Margaret watched in silent fury as the lord privy seal, Sir Stafford Cripps, a vegetarian, “consumed a whole week’s egg ration” when dining with them.

It was a mistake that the royals did not make again: members of the royal family have regularly served in war – most recently Prince Harry who performed two tours of Afghanistan.

When the throne finally passed from his offspring to Queen Victoria in 1837, she and Prince Albert resumed the task of fashioning the royal family into a role of moral leadership for the nation.

The announcement that Prince Charles has tested positive for coronavirus highlights the acute dilemma the pandemic poses for the British royal family: how to display solidarity and leadership to a nation with a deadly disease hanging over it.

The Magic Mouse isn't the only option for your Mac

It's got multi-touch gesture support and is rechargeable, but many people would still trade fancy features for a traditional mouse.

The main thing is you get a mouse that has all the features you want.

If you're looking for a similar look and feel to the Magic Mouse, the Logitech Pebble is probably the closest I have ever tried.

It may not be a touch device, but the low profile and flat top make it easy to use for left or right-handed people to use, and it has a super quiet click mechanism, so it never gets annoying.

Lastly, if you like to game at all the SteelSeries Rival 650 is a great gaming mouse that doesn't cost hundreds of dollars.

New grad vs senior dev

The vast majority of VB developers are asking is “London” anywhere in this address, or similar problems where the strings are normal human-language strings without a lot of repetitions, and both the source and query strings are short.

As Tim explained to me, first off, the reason why VB does this seemingly bizarre “find the first character match, then check if query is a prefix of source” logic is because the skipto method is not written in the naive fashion that I showed here.

The naive algorithm’s worst case is O(n*m) where n is the length of source and m is the length of the query.

Aside: To keep it simple we’ll ignore all the difficulties inherent in this problem entailed by the fact that VB was the first Microsoft product where one version worked everywhere in the world on every version of Windows no matter how Windows was localized; systems that used Chinese DBCS character encodings ran the same VB binary as systems that used European code pages, and we had to support all these encodings plus Unicode UTF-16.

Think about it this way; most source strings that VB developers are searching have any given character in them maybe 2% of the time, and so for whatever the start character is of the query string, the skipto step is going to find those 2% of possible matches very quickly.

Comparing Machine Learning Algorithms for Predicting Clothing Classes: Part 4

Support vector machines (SVMs) provide another method for classifying the clothing categories in the Fashion MNIST data.

We specify a radial Kernel, use accuracy as the performance metric and let the algorithm perform a random search for the cost parameter over (=17) random values.

For an \(n \times p\) data matrix and binary outcome variable \(y_i \in \{-1, 1\}\), a hyperplane is a flat affine subspace of dimension \(p – 1\) that divides the \(p\)-dimensional space into two halves, defined by \(\beta_0 + \beta_1 X_1 + \dots + \beta_p X_p\).

In the first post, we prepared the data for analysis and built a Python deep learning neural network model to predict the clothing categories of the Fashion MNIST data.

The grid search selects the same optimal parameter values as the random search ( and ), therefore also resulting in 88% and 87% training and test accuracies.

I Had A CBD Facial To Help My Skin Disorder. This Is What Happened.

The CBD-only line will be available at STEAM’s exclusive retail partner Fred Segal Sunset and the brand’s own e-commerce site, while the THC products are available at the cannabis industry’s very-first beauty counter at SERRA, the dispensary’s first Los Angeles Flagship, open now.

I used the CBD Face Oil for a week after the initial facial and immediately noticed results — and after using the THC body oil on my arms for a week, for once in my life, I didn’t have embarrassing flakes of skin falling off of me.

Of course, I left feeling like my face was finally hydrated — but the real test would be if it stayed that way when I used the product on my own… I was sent home with both the THC and CBD products but I immediately wondered if I would feel any sort of “highs” from the THC version?

Related: Beyond CBD: Four Emerging Cannabinoids To Watch In Skincare And Topicals Company Co-founder Carla Gentile explains that “STEAM products were designed to create balance in the skin using the entourage effect of THC and CBD activated together.

I’ve tried other CBD products like CBD lip balm and Hemp-based lotion, but I hadn’t seen a real difference in my itchy skin.

Animal Crossing fans are building tarantula traps, mazes, and more

Some of these, you can’t enact unless you have multiple tarantulas on the map at once — which may not happen unless you’re on a dreaded tarantula island.

And then there are the players who are building traps, mazes, and even finding tarantula exploits.

By building out a specific set of pitfalls and rocks, the arachnid will get confused and stop coming after you, instead just going round and round: It seems that tarantulas are programmed in a way that makes it easy to take advantage of them.

While some may consider tarantula island a total nightmare, it’s a good opportunity to learn how to actually nab the creepy critters: Plus, tarantulas sell for a ton of money.

So, whether you build a trap, confuse your prey, or just get it the old-fashioned way, there’s plenty of incentive to not run away when a tarantula appears.
