Hear Steve Jobs demo his NeXT computer in 1988

This audio recording is one of three that feature Jobs, and one of 92 that were made of Boston Computer Society meetings and similar events.

[But] in 1988, when I was basking in Jobs's presentation, [Charles] Mann was elsewhere in the hall recording it [on audio]."

But at evening's end, as we streamed out of Jobs's reality-distortion field back into the chilly Boston air, each of us got a NeXT product to take home: a glossy poster depicting the cube in all its unattainable glory."

On November 30, 1988, Steve Jobs gave one of the first public demonstrations of the then brand-new NeXT Computer to the Boston Computer Society.

An audio recording of Steve Jobs revealing the NeXT computer shortly after its official launch has been released in full.

Star-studded Ramleela in Ayodhya! Manoj Tiwari as Angad, Ravi Kishan as Bharat, actor-MPs set to play key roles

The report added that the Ramleela would feature North East Delhi MP and former Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari in the role of Angad, while Ravi Kishan, who is a Bhojpuri actor and MP from Gorakhpur, would play the role of Bharat.

The event is being organised by the Meri Maa Foundation, while BJP MP Parvesh Sahib Singh would be the main patron of the Ramleela.

Meri Maa Foundation founder Subhash Malik was quoted by the report as saying that the Ramleela would not have any audience due to the coronavirus restrictions.

The report quoted Kavita Joshi as saying that it was her good fortune to be playing the role of Sita, and it is one of the happiest moments of her life, especially because the Ramleela would, for the first time, be staged on the same soil where the foundation stone for the Ram Temple has been laid.

Malik said that the stars were casted for the Ramleela based on the actors’ performance on the Delhi Ramleela stage, adding that he had watched them perform and could vouch for them.

The Vans & MoMA Collaboration Features Artwork By Salvador Dalí, Claude Monet and More

Showcasing a selection of pieces from his Water Lilies series, the collection features a hat, fleece and backpack displaying the paintings from his later years, from 1914 to 1926.

Also in the collection is a series inspired by abstract artist Wassily Kandinsky, with a short sleeve tee, crewneck, snapback hat and a pair of sneakers depicting his 1923 work, Orange.

On top of a graphic printed longsleeve and teal hoodie, the collection includes a pair of the Old Skool Twist, fitted with a print of the painting on the side panels under the brown suede upper, complete with a signature black side-stripe and a distorted foxing stripe that seems to be melting off the sneaker.

Starting with a 10-piece MoMA branded selection, we see a colourful transformation of Vans’ signature checkerboard print across long and short sleeve tees, a cinch backpack and the recognisable ComfyCush Old Skool and Era sneakers, all inspired by the museum’s recent expansion.

Vans is always launching new collaborations, and next on their list is a creative collection with The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

50 designers reimagine the humble toilet paper holder

Toilet paper, tp, bathroom tissue; no matter what you call it, the little holder it spins around generally looks the same.

The show, called Under/Over, features the works of more than 50 artists who redesigned the hardware responsible for the thankless, yet essential job of keeping toilet paper at the ready.

Marta directors Heidi Korsavong and Benjamin Critton say they’ve always been interested in “under-celebrated and overlooked domestic objects,” and after partnering with eco-friendly toilet paper brand PlantPaper, they learned just how bad toilet paper can be for the environment (it’s a single use paper product, and all those soft multi-ply sheets lead to major cutting of virgin forests).

The team at Marta got interested in the literal point of contact between toilet paper and consumer—the oft-overlooked dispenser.

Sure, all this attention on toilet paper can see a bit silly.

Dragon Age lore is made richer by its readiness to break with canon

We are told in the codex and by characters, in both the first and second games, that the Vallaslin – as the tattoos are known – are the outcome of a religious ritual stemming from ancient elven culture, and that the different designs represent various deities in the Elven Pantheon.

Compare this to a piece of information that is presented to us in the codex section of a game menu as a block of text, with no name or source attached to it – we are led to assume that this knowledge comes from an omniscient writer adding to what is already in the game.

One of the reasons that this change in lore makes Dragon Age’s own history feel real, and not flimsy, is that the information provided to you throughout the series has always been potentially unreliable.

Dragon Age: Inquisition, the third game in the series, makes numerous revelations in regards to the history of its fantasy world.

When we think of a game world’s history we think of it as a single narrative, a collection of events and characters, with little room for new branches once a sequence has been established.

Pison receives 158 tenders from Hyflux creditors, puzzles over UWG's reluctance to engage

"Pison is aware of the tight timelines and the pressure on the Hyflux group to undertake and complete its debt restructuring exercise, and Pison has made concerted efforts and taken active steps to facilitate the progress and success of the invitation memorandum.

"There are tender application forms Pison has received from eligible creditors with a quantum of eligible debt larger than some members of the UWG.

In its letter on Tuesday addressed to Hyflux's executive chairman and group chief executive Olivia Lum, Pison said that it had on Aug 31 arranged for a townhall meeting with the noteholders via Zoom, for Corporate FinEdge to walk them through the key terms of the invitation memorandum and to address the questions they had.

SINGAPORE (THE BUSINESS TIMES) - Potential Hyflux investor Pison Investments on Tuesday (Sept 15) said it has received 158 tender application forms from noteholders and other eligible creditors to date, but efforts to engage with the unsecured working group (UWG) of seven banks have fallen through.

Our hope is that if Pison is successful in completing the invitation memorandum and dealing with the UWG, the P&P holders and Hyflux's shareholders, Hyflux, an iconic company in our view, together with the help of Pison, can be rescued and once again flourish."

Markets are counting on a vaccine rescue that is further away than they think

Loading The US federal immunisation panel says the Pfizer vaccine must be transported in "cool boxes" and stored at deep freeze temperatures of minus 70 celsius.

The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has lowered the approval threshold to 50 per cent efficacy, enough to cut the "R" infection rate to manageable levels and take the sting out of the pandemic.

Global numbers crunched by Goldman Sachs suggest that generalised use of indoor masks is worth 5 per cent of GDP in positive reopening and confidence effects, so mask-resisters raise the likelihood of a second full lockdown and a double-dip recession.

The UK is winding down its furlough support and will end the scheme next month, with much ill-judged talk of zombie companies and the need for Schumpeterian tough love.

Eoin Noonan/Web Summit/Getty Images Billionaire investor Ray Dalio told Bloomberg that the US is in a period of "great risk" because of rising deficits and the uncertainty around the upcoming US election.

The most important thing investors can do to manage this risk is to diversify their portfolios by asset class, country, and currency, he said.

Robo-advisors offer automated investing services at a low cost — here's how to tell if they're right for you

Nikola Disputes Short Seller’s Report With Additional Detail. The Stock Is Soaring.

Alternative-fuel trucking company Nikola released another response on Monday to a negative report from short seller Hindenburg Research.

Monday’s release offers investors more detail, saying Nikola has been through “extensive due diligence processes” with companies it is doing business with, including auto-parts maker Bosch, hedge-fund ValueAct Capital, machinery-maker CNH Industrial (CNHI) and General Motors (GM).

The release does appear to indicate that some of the issues in the Hindenburg report may be valid, such as a Nikola truck rolling down a hill, not under it’s own power.

Hindenburg was referencing an old marketing video and the new Nikola release states the truck in the video “was never described as under its own propulsion or powertrain driven.”

Wedbush analyst Dan Ives wrote in a Monday note that the Hindenburg report references “a host of historical negative issues,” adding that from this point forward Nikola’s success will be about business execution.

Mulan’s live-action love interest is better than her animated one

In the animated movie, Shang spares Mulan’s life and is one of the few people who listens to her when she explains that Shan Yu and his followers are out to kill the emperor.

Image: Disney Actually, Honghui is one of the first soldiers to start talking to Mulan as a friend, directly addressing her when they’re in group settings.

But hear me out: because Honghui is now just a soldier, he establishes an actual rapport with Mulan early on in the movie, so the burgeoning attraction he feels toward her is present from the very beginning.

In the live-action Mulan, Li Shang is split into two characters: Commander Tung (Donnie Yen), who serves as a sort of father figure to Mulan (Liu Yifei), and Cheng Honghui (Yoson An), a fellow soldier.

When the news broke two years ago that Disney’s animated Mulan character Li Shang, captain in the Emperor’s Imperial Army, singer of the workout classic “I’ll Make a Man Out of You,” and bisexual icon, was not going to be in the new live-action Mulan, fans of the original movie took to social media to complain.

New ID Will Help 1 Million Britons Avoid Arrest For Cannabis

There has also been bipartisan support among members of parliament, including Conservative MP Crispin Blunt, who said, “Despite the law change in November 2018 very few of the estimated 1.4 million people in the UK who consume cannabis for medical reasons have a prescription and thus face prosecution for treating their illness.

The patient’s general practitioner does not need to approve of their use of medical cannabis for the CanCard to be issued, they only need to confirm that the recipient has one of the qualifying conditions.

The card was the brainchild of medical cannabis patient and activist Carly Barton, described on the CanCard website as the first person in the UK to receive a private prescription for herbal cannabis to treat her fibromyalgia and post-stroke neuropathy.

The CanCard is a holographic photo ID that is available for patients who are currently being prescribed medical marijuana, as well as people who have one of the more than two dozen qualifying conditions for a medical cannabis card but have not received a prescription because they can’t afford one.

Medical cannabis became legal in the UK in July 2018, and since November 2018, specialist doctors have had the ability to prescribe cannabis-based medicines to patients.
