Lawmakers prepared 12 accusations for Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google
Apple and Google team up to track patients with COVID-19
If you were near a sick person, a notification will come.
Apple and Google are developing technology to help curb the spread of coronavirus. It uses smartphones on Android and iOS with Bluetooth enabled and will allow you to keep track of who is sick COVID-19 and you contacted.
Here's how it should work:
Two people communicated briefly with each other, for example, for about 10 minutes. Their smartphones automatically exchange anonymous identifiers, which change every 15 minutes.
If one of these two is later diagnosed with COVID-19, the health authorities pass its identifiers over the past 14 days to Apple and Google - of course, only with the consent of the patient.
The system compares identifiers, and all people who have contacted the patient are given an alert and information on how to behave when there is a risk of infection.
Something similar is being created simultaneously by specialists at the Massachusetts University of Technology.
The social interaction tracking feature will be introduced in mid-May with Android and iOS updates. Then the corresponding official applications will appear on Google Play and the AppStore. They should be compatible even with fairly old versions of systems, such as Android 6.0.
If a person receives a notification about contact with an infected person, no names will be contained there. The system is decentralized and identifiers will only be stored on user devices.
Specialists from the American Civil Liberties Union believe that any smartphone tracking to control the spread of COVID-19 could violate privacy. So participation in the program should be voluntary.
10 most seached babies in 2020 according to Google
Children are the happiness of life. The year 2020 was full of negative events, but also positive ones for many celebrity families, and not only. We have collected in this top, the most sought after on Google children of the year 2020. We remind you that we also have characters invented in this top, or lets's say that this are virtual babies, that melted hearts of million people - Baby Nut for example . But you will surely fall in love with each of them. Let's start this cutness overload collection with babies. Bemorepanda loves it!
1.Elon Musk baby
The first on the list is a beautiful baby, who's name is unique. Canadian singer Grimes and the head of SpaceX and Tesla Elon Musk have a son. Musk tweeted this and posted some photos with the boy.
The child was named X Æ A-12. That is, his first and last name is X Æ A-12 Musk.
Musk's other children are named Damian, Griffin, Xavier, Saxon and Kai. His first son, Nevada Alexander Musk, died at the age of 10 weeks from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Grimes has this first child.
At first, everyone thought Musk was just joking on Twitter. But soon there was confirmation from Grimes herself. Yes, the head of Tesla did not lie - their son is really called X Æ A-12, and this is not just a random set of letters. Each letter has its own meaning. Grimes talked about this on Twitter. Here's how their son's name stands:
X is an unknown variable
Æ - According to Grimes, this is how AI is written in Elvish, that is, "artificial intelligence". The singer claims that Æ in Elvish can also mean “love”.
A-12 - In honor of the American Lockheed A-12 reconnaissance aircraft, the predecessor of the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird (Grimes and Musk's favorite aircraft). A-12 is also called the "Archangel". Grimes wrote SR-17 instead of SR-71, but Musk corrected it. The couple explains their love for the SR-71 as follows: the scout has no weapons installed, there is no protection either, the emphasis is on speed. Useful in combat, but not harmful.
Grimes gave two additional explanations: The “A” in X Æ A-12 can also be seen as a reference to her favorite song “Archangel”. And "X" - to the symbol of 2020 in the Chinese horoscope, the white metal rat.
The singer hopes that her son will like this name. Grimes thinks that this could be the name of the protagonist of some story.
A photo of a funny creature, which people considered a baby platypus, spread on Twitter and surprised users of the social network.
Platypuses in the wild are found exclusively in Australia and are rightfully considered one of the symbols of the continent. The only representative of the platypus family and the second animal in the order of monotremes, this unusual animal combines the features of a mammal and a reptile, and its appearance to this day amazes and amuses humans.
And in mid-February, the inhabitants of Twitter learned that the cubs of the platypus look even more strange - or so, at least they thought. A lot of posts appeared on the social network with a picture of a gray baby in the palm of a person. The baby has a beak, a shovel-tail and thumbs - it would seem that everything is as it should be for a future adult of this beast.
But many commentators doubted that the beast in the picture was real, and they did the right thing. People googled the photo and found it on the Artstation site for creators of all kinds.
3.Ice Age Baby
Sometimes memes are born by themselves, and no one can tell where they come from or who invented them. Recently, perhaps one of the strangest animated memes has appeared on the Web - and its main character is baby Roshan from the first "Ice Age".
Roshan is the most ordinary child, except for his height - judging by what is written on the Ledopedia website, he has grown up to 186 centimeters, and this exceeds the average height of a modern adult. But the hero is just a baby!
Often Roshan is even compared with Peppa Pig, which is almost two meters tall. In general, this seemingly insignificant detail of the characters' appearance often comes as a shock to fans - for example, Olaf from "Frozen" is a real giant, and Marinette from "Ladybug and Super Cat" is very tiny.
In any case, memes are memes, and the hero in the cartoon is a completely innocent and kind creature, like all babies. Or almost everything.
4.Anderson Cooper baby
Anderson Cooper has been pictured with his newborn son Wyatt Morgan, and the adorable little boy looks just like his father on the cover for the People photo.
CNN anchor Anderson Cooper recently welcomed his son Wyatt Morgan Cooper, and from a recently released photograph, the similarities between father and son are striking.
Anderson admitted that as a new parent, experiencing severe stress and lack of sleep, he did not mind all the problems.
Anderson greeted Wyatt in April with a surrogate, and when announcing the birth, he explained that he never thought he would become a father because of his sexuality.
The CNN anchor also added that although he wants his parents and brother to be alive in order to meet his son, he believes they can see him from there.
Andersons reported last month that he was Wyeth's parent with former partner Benjamin Maisani, with whom he had been in a relationship for ten years.
He explained that he wants his son to have as many positive role models as possible and added that it would be better if Wyatt had two parents.
5. Baby Nut
After the final American football match, or Super Bowl, the United States was swept by a wave of love for a new advertising character - Baby Nut. During the game, the fans were shown a video about the birth of a new mascot for the snack manufacturer Planters.
The story of the baby's birth in the video began with a sad and strange event - with the funeral of the previous Planters character, Mr. Peanuts. During the farewell ceremony, green sprouts appeared from the ground, in which Tiny Peanuts with huge eyes resembling those of Baby Yoda (which, of course, did not go unnoticed), were wrapped. The video ends with the words “It was a joke, I'm back,” and the voice of Mr. Peanuts, familiar to the American viewer, utters them.
Planters has created an online store featuring a collection of Baby Nut branded products. Sweatshirts, baby suits and towels, dishes, toys, and other niceties featuring a tiny nut can be purchased for between $ 15 and $ 34.
In addition to his own measure, Baby Nut also has a Twitter account, where you can watch a series of short animated videos with his participation, leave a comment and even give advice to the new Planters symbol.
Note that not everyone appreciated the idea of the brand's creatives. In the comments, Twitter users are wondering whether it was worth killing Mr. Peanuts for the sake of having a baby - after all, the old mascot would have been enough just to get married and become a father.
The image of Mr. Peanut wearing a top hat and a monocle has been used in advertising for Planters since the early 20th century. In the 1930s, he became a symbol of the entire peanut industry in the United States. His image has remained unchanged for almost a century. In 2006, the brand conducted a survey among consumers who were asked if they should add new details to Mr. Peanuts. Most of the respondents asked to leave everything as it is. Shortly before the Super Bowl, the company announced the death of their signature character and even promised to devote a series of comics to this event.
6. Nicki Minaj baby
American rap singer Nicki Minaj became a mother for the first time.
The 37-year-old star gave birth to a child to her 41-year-old man, Kenneth Petty, who was convicted of Rinishe's attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl. According to the insider, the couple's firstborn was born on September 30 in Los Angeles. The couple themselves have not yet commented on the good news. Note that the singer's pregnancy became known in July this year. She announced this to fans on her Instagram page. The star posted a photo in revealing outfits, on which she showed a big tummy and added the gestag "pregnant". Recall Nicki Minaj and her beloved Kenneth Petty
got married last October. Nicky posted a video showing mugs with the words Mr and Mrs (Mr and Mrs) and baseball caps with the signatures Bride and Groom (bride and groom).
7. Katy Perry baby
American pop singer Katy Perry told the world about her pregnancy in the video for the new song Never Worn White. Her rounded belly is visible only in the very last frame of this four-minute video.
"OMG, so glad you don't have to suck in your stomach or carry a huge bag around with you," the singer tweeted.
Perry is expecting the first child from her current fiancé, actor Orlando Bloom, with whom they have been together since 2016.
Prior to that, the pop star was married to the English comedian, publicist and TV personality Russell Brand.
In her post on Instagram, the 35-year-old singer said that she and Bloom are "absolutely delighted" with this news, and the child should be born at the same time when her sixth album is released.
"So many things are going to happen this summer. Not only will I be giving birth literally, but also figuratively - something that you all have been waiting for a long time. So let's just call it:" double whack. It's two in one bottle. "
Perry explained the decision to talk about pregnancy in the music video this way: “I want to share everything with you friends, but I know that it is best to do it with music, because ... this is my way of dialogue with you. This is how we talk to each other, "the singer admitted.
She added that she began to have a craving for certain foods - and now carries around Tabasco sauce and eats the same thing for weeks - burritos.
8. Ed Sheeran baby
Famous British songwriter and songwriter Ed Sheeran became a father for the first time. The singer spoke about this on his Instagram page on Tuesday, September 1.
His wife Cherry Seaborn gave birth to a daughter. She was given an unusual name - Lyra Antarctica.
"Hello everyone! I have news for you to share ... Last week Cherry gave birth to our beautiful and healthy daughter, Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran. We are totally in love with her. Both mom and daughter are doing well, and we are in ninth heaven with happiness ", - wrote the musician on the social network.
Screenshot of the post. Photo: instagram.com
Only less than a month ago, the media reported that Ed Sheeran's 29-year-old wife was pregnant. The spouses carefully concealed this fact to the last, even from close friends, which was possible thanks to the quarantine. The couple were isolated on an estate in Suffolk.
The singer also wrote that he and his wife are now having a special period in their lives, so they need privacy.
Note that Ed Sheeran got engaged to Seaborn in January 2018, and a year later they got married. The couple organized a modest ceremony to which old school friends, close family members, and a priest were invited.
9. Cameron Diaz baby
Hollywood star Cameron Diaz, who shone in the famous films "The Mask", "Charlie's Angels" and "Very Bad Teacher", has not appeared on the screens for more than five years. The actress gave up her career for her family when in 2015 she married musician Benji Madden, who is seven years younger than his wife.
However, the celebrity was able to give birth to the long-awaited first child - daughter Raddix - only in December last year. Long months of examinations, unsuccessful attempts to get pregnant, despair and finally a successful IVF procedure - this child Diaz literally suffered, having gone, according to relatives, all the circles of hell.
And now, four months after giving birth, the couple are expecting a baby again. This was reported by the sources of the American magazine "OK!"
- She began to carefully monitor her diet and gave up alcohol. Cameron just glows with happiness and even got a little fat, - the friends of the spouses who communicated with them via video link shared with reporters.
10. Cocomelon baby
If you have a small child, you have probably heard this song. Perhaps after reading the title of the article, you mentally began to sing along: "Baby shark, doo doo da-doo da-doo ..."
It's no exaggeration to call the track Baby Shark in PinkFong's version one of the biggest hits of 2018. A funny dance composition about a family of sharks won children's hearts and made kids all over the planet dance dashingly, repeating funny movements from the video.
The Baby Shark video has collected about two billion views on YouTube, which allowed him to enter the thirty most popular videos in the history of the site. When we factor in across all major platforms, the total number of video launches is close to four billion.
According to unverified data, the melody of the composition was born at the beginning of the twentieth century, but world fame came to her only a century later.
Initially, Baby Shark spread in summer camps. In the evenings, children sang it around the fire, introducing members of the shark family in different movements.
In 2007, Alexandra Müller, also known under the pseudonym Alemuel, posted a video of Kleiner Hai on YouTube. In the video, she sings Baby Shark in German, accompanying the song with curious gestures.
Later, Alexandra signed a contract with EMI Muller, who offered to officially release the song Kleiner Hai. The track was set to dance music and presented to the public in a new format. It hit the charts in Germany and Austria.
It is hardly worth looking for deep meaning or some subtext in the words of the composition. It's just a children's song about a shark family.
Several versions of the text are known in which the main characters are engaged in different shark affairs. They hunt small fish, sometimes eating sailors or occasional swimmers who, after death, go to heaven.
Below are the lyrics of the song in the most common version.
Baby Shark covers
The song was made a global hit by the Korean educational channel for children Pinkfong. On November 25, 2015, the studio released the Baby Shark video.
The video was gaining popularity at a leisurely pace. In 2017, he went viral in Indonesia, then he was loved in Asian countries. In the summer of 2018, Akulenok delighted children around the world.
In Russian-speaking countries, kids often sing: "Shark, tu-ru-ru-ru."
The song attracted the attention of numerous K-pop groups.
It seems that not a single popular television show has done without it. Let's hear James Corden sing Baby Shark.
Finally, a metal rock cover of Baby Shark by Frog Leap Studios.
This year, the video game industry has found a second wind thanks to the pandemic, because many, due to self-isolation, have decided to turn to this particular type of entertainment. Metacritic, a website aggregator of reviews and ratings, has compiled a list of the best games of the outgoing year, which hit the taste of both critics and ordinary gamers.
People searched for a lot of new games titles in 2020, but some of them became famous for everyone. Bemorepanda collected all these famous games that were searched in 2020 for you. Of course we have some good information about all of them.
1) Among Us
Among Us is a multiplayer game in which players must find a traitor among the ranks of the spaceship team, whose goal is to kill everyone. The traitor needs to kill as many "teammates" as possible before being declassified. In fact, this game is an analogue of the tabletop "Mafia", where for successful subversion, players must mislead their opponents and do everything possible not to reveal themselves.
The game offers several different maps, support for a huge number of players and cross-play between platforms. On each map, players have different ways to get things done. For real crew members, this is a fight against traitors, while the latter have completely different methods of committing sabotage, which will destroy the entire crew together with the station or spacecraft.
2) Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is a multiplayer game in which players will experience a mad obstacle race in which they must overtake 99 other participants and remain the only winner. The entire playing space is filled with various traps and obstacles that can prevent you from reaching the end at any time.
In fact, Fall Guys is a "royal battle" in which players should not shoot their opponents, but compete with them in agility, reaction speed and knowledge of cards. The game offers several different modes with completely different conditions. The main goal is to stay as high as possible than all other players, which will bring the crown and victory in the round.
Valorant is a multiplayer shooter from the creators of League of Legends, in which players are expected to face off against teams in a 5x5 format. The gameplay is familiar to everyone who has played Counter-Strike at least once - one team is trying to plant a bomb at a certain point, the second is trying to prevent it from doing so. The main difference between Valorant and CS is the unique characters-Agents, each of which has unique skills and abilities. "Spamming" with skills, however, will not work here - each skill has a certain amount of charges that must either be bought in the store or received for kills.
4) Genshin Impact
Genshin Impact is an open world action RPG inspired by The Legend of Zelda series. Players will find the fantasy world of Teivat, which is full of ruins of ancient cities, fortresses, magical forests and the like. The world of the game is completely open to exploration, and you can climb every mountain - if only the character has enough stamina. Players are not limited in their freedom in any way - except perhaps by the edge of the map, behind which lies a non-playing space.
Genshin Impact is a party game where you can switch between characters at any time of the battle. The very same characters can be obtained from the "gacha" - an in-game system, similar to loot boxes, where for a certain amount of special currency players get weapons and heroes. The composition of the group must be approached wisely, because the characters have different skills of different elements, the combination of which in battle is the key to victory. The game also has a co-op that allows four players to conquer the vastness of Teiwata at the same time.
5) Ghost of Tsushima
Ghost of Tsushima is an open-world action-adventure game set in the mid-13th century. In the center of the story is a samurai named Jin, who finds himself on the island of Tsushima in the midst of the first Mongol invasion of Japan. It is he who will have to stop the invasion of the Mongols into the territory of the Land of the Rising Sun. The game is based on real events, but the characters are created by the authors themselves.
The island of Tsushima in the game is an open world in which players can move freely in any direction, and in Ghost of Tsushima there are a minimum of different markers and pointers - you need to navigate the local world yourself. Players must not only explore the island, but also fight the Mongols, liberate castles and destroy military camps, and help civilians in trouble.
6) Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a life simulator and the fifth game in the Animal Crossing series that invites players to start a new life on a small desert island. While exploring the island in real time, players must collect resources, get food, and gradually transform the island into an inhabited settlement with anthropomorphic animals as inhabitants. As in all previous games in the series, real time and game time are synchronized with each other, so when the players have winter outside, the game will also have winter.
Players must settle down on their island, invite new inhabitants to it, and also improve and build it up in every possible way to their liking. New Horizons has both single player and multiplayer - up to four players in local mode and up to eight online can be on the same island at the same time. The game also supports Amiibo cards and figures.
7) Assassin's Creed Valhalla
Assassin's Creed: Valhalla is the next installment in the Assassin's Creed series, set in a completely new location for the series - on the shores of Norway and England during the ninth century AD. The protagonist of the game is a Viking named Eivor, who opposes the English king Alfred. Players will face battles for territories, the ability to capture the settlements and cities of opponents, as well as elements of Scandinavian mythology.
In "Valhalla" there is a large base-hub, where the protagonist will have to start all his adventures, the non-linearity of the passage and a large number of RPG elements - even more than in previous games in the series. In the Scandinavian edition, the developers have once again reworked the combat system, improved hunting and progression. Naval battles are a thing of the past - in Valhalla, ships are used for fast travel, not for battles.
8) The Last of Us 2
The Last of Us 2 is a sequel to the action adventure The Last of Us. The game takes place five years after the events of the original, and the protagonists of the original game, Joel and Ellie, again become the main characters. A completely different story awaits players, centered around hatred and revenge rather than love. The main character of the second part is not Joel, but Ellie.
The second part differs from the first one not only in the subject matter, but also in the changed and modified gameplay. The Last of Us 2 relies on stealth even more than the first one - so, the heroine can hide in the grass, bushes, in crevices between houses, under cars, and so on. However, depending on a number of factors, enemies may still notice it - and in this they are helped by improved artificial intelligence. It is worth noting that not only the human enemies have changed - the infected have also become much more dangerous.
9) Madden NFL 21
Madden NFL 21 is the latest addition to the popular American football series in development since 1997. As every year, the game features licensed teams and real, faithfully reproduced athletes that we can lead to victory in subsequent matches. This game is developed by EA Sports, which specializes in sports games.
Madden NFL 21 - American football simulator. The game allows you to play matches against real licensed American NFL teams. The developers focused on the realism of the game - they made sure that the virtual wrestling resembled as much as possible what we know from real sports.
New is a player control mechanic called Skill Stick, which allows you to perform a series of maneuvers both offensively (when you are in possession of the ball) and when defending - these are turns, jumps and slides, as well as passes that can be combined into complex combinations.
It's also worth noting that thanks to the updated Superstar X-Factor (2.0) system, individual stars have their own characteristic moves and games.
In Madden NFL 21, we can play alone or with others. The game offers the opportunity to play both single matches and tournaments - both with a live opponent and with AI-controlled athletes. In this game, we can also find the Madden Ultimate Team module and the Face of the Franchise: Rise of Fame mode, which the creators describe as a documentary career mode.
Madden NFL 21 has very nice 3D graphics. Both stadiums and player models have a high level of realism and detail.
The Jackbox Party Pack 7 is a vibrant and dynamic game designed for parties and a great time with friends. In total, this project includes five unique parts, each of which will not let you get bored even for a minute. The first part is designed for a team of three to eight players, where participants need to give answers to interesting, and sometimes even funny questions, gaining points and trying to snatch victory into their own hands. The second part is a kind of collaboration, where players have to go through the various difficulties of the life of ordinary people, going straight to hell. A team of three to eight people will have a great time here. As for the third part, it was performed in the style of a fighting game, where the player needs to make every effort and opportunity to defeat an insidious and equally strong opponent. In the fourth part, everything is rather strange, because the basis is laid in the conversation, whoever speaks more will win. The fifth part is a "guessing game", where from two to six players take part, and the main task is to guess the correct answer to a particular question.
Google trends has released top 10 sports teams of 2020
The three most popular sports that have developed in North America are American football, baseball, and basketball. The main professional sports associations in the United States for these sports are the National Basketball Association and the National Hockey League (NHL). Competitions within these associations receive tremendous attention from the public and the media and are considered among the most important sports in the world in their respective sports. All of the above leagues are among the most profitable sports associations in the world.
Referred to as soccer to distinguish it from its national counterpart, soccer is somewhat less popular as a spectator sport in the United States than in many other countries, although it is widespread at the amateur and semi-professional levels, especially among young people and Hispanics in the United States (people from Mexico to South America). The Major League Soccer (MLS) is growing in importance in the country and has already surpassed the NBA and NHL in average attendance, although it still lags well behind in average fees and budgets.
In addition to the higher, some associations also have professional minor leagues. US professional teams in all major sporting events actively franchise the rules and symbols of their respective associations. At the same time, all major sports leagues use the Olympic playoff system for organizing and accounting for tournaments.
Sports play a large role in the US education system and student lifestyle. Most colleges and universities organize sports teams for important sports and host individual sports competitions. There is the National Collegiate Sports Association (NCAA).
In 2020, Google posted the most searched sport teams, Bemorepanda is ready to introduce you in the sport world.
1) Boston Celtics
The Boston Celtics is an American professional basketball club based in Boston, Massachusetts. Serves in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Basketball Association. The club was founded in 1946 and has won the NBA title 17 times during its existence.
For the first time basketball players "Celtics" became champions in 1957. From 1959 to 1966, Boston won the championship eight times in a row, setting a record winning streak for North American professional sports. During this period, the club faced the Los Angeles Lakers 5 times in the final, which influenced the birth of the most famous confrontation in the NBA.
The Boston players won the title in 1974 and 1976, with Dave Cowens, John Hawlicek and Joe Joe White as leaders at the time. Since the 1981/82 season, the Celtics have played Larry Bird, Robert Parish and Kevin McHale, now known as the Big Three. During its existence, from 1980 to 1992, Boston won the championship three times.
2) Miami Heat
The Miami Heat is a professional basketball club playing in the South East Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Basketball Association (NBA). The club was founded in 1988 and joined the league in 1988/89 as a result of the expansion of the NBA, along with the Orlando Magic, Minnesota Timberwolves and Charlotte Hornets.
The team is based in Miami, Florida, and plays its home games at the American Airlines Arena, which was built in 1999. In 25 seasons in the NBA, the club won the championship three times, the conference four times, the division twelve times, and 17 times in the playoffs. Miami Heat is the third in NBA history in terms of the number of games won in a row - 27 (from February 3 to March 27, 2013), behind only the Los Angeles Lakers (33 matches) and the Golden State Warriors (28 matches )
3) Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City Chiefs ("Chiefs of Kansas City") is a professional American football club from Kansas City (Missouri, USA), playing in the National Football League. The team was founded in 1960.
In July 2020, the team signed a 10-year contract with quarterback Patrick Mahomes worth $ 503 million, a record amount in sports history. The player appeared on the team during the 2017 draft, and was named the NFL's Most Valuable Player of the Season the following year, just like in Super Bowl LIV.
4) Los Angeles Clippers
The Los Angeles Clippers is a professional basketball club serving in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Basketball Association. The club was founded in 1970 in the city of Buffalo (New York) and was called "Buffalo Braves". In 1978, the team moved to San Diego and changed their name to San Diego Clippers. In 1984 the club moved to Los Angeles, where it is based today, playing home games at the Staples Center.
After moving to California, the club could not achieve success for a long time, both in the regular season and in the playoffs. Only in the 2010s, with the arrival of such players as Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, the Clippers began to consistently make the playoffs, and in 2013 won the title of division champion for the first time.
5) Dallas Stars
"Dallas Stars" is a professional hockey club playing in the NHL (National Hockey League). The club is based in Dallas, Texas, USA.
When in 1967 the NHL decided to expand the league to 12 teams, they could not ignore Minnesota, the state that gave and continues to provide the largest number of American hockey players.
The new Minnesota North Stars played their first match on October 21, 1967 against the California Seals and won 3-1. The game took place at the Met Center stadium in Bloomington, 20 kilometers from downtown Minneapolis. For 26 years, Met Center has been home to the Northern Stars.
6) Washington Football Team
This is not a Washington Football Team game unless it has a slow start.
In every game except Dallas, the Washington Football Team had a bad start. In the first quarter alone, the Washington football team is down 67-23 in its first nine games. In the first half, that's a grim 139-82 deficit in favor of the rivals of the Washington Football team.
Only once did the Washington football team lead at half time. And only once, when trailing, the deficit was one point or less.
In addition, the Washington DC football team is the only team in the NFL that didn't score in their first race. Washington is terrible at the start of the game. Terrible.
This is a trend that needs to be resisted. This cannot continue if Washington ever wants to achieve a stable winner. I am high on this coaching staff and I like some of the young figures, but it doesn't matter if they come out flat in every game.
To their credit, retaliation is usually not a problem for the Washington soccer team. Against the Eagles, Browns, Giants twice, and now against Lions, they made the games competitive. Against the Eagles, they finished the victory from behind.
This team is struggling. Coaches know how to adjust the break. There are elements in this team that give you hope for a bright future for this team.
These positives will be invalid unless the Washington football team does better.
It became embarrassing how terrible this team was at the beginning of the game. The entire team would be much better if they didn't have to play absolutely perfect in the second half to give themselves a chance. This is difficult for any team, and given the lack of talent in this team, this is an almost impossible task.
Again, there are some positive aspects that can be taken away. The Washington football team is determined. Defender Alex Smith played an impressive game against Lviv, almost returning for the second week in a row. Ron Rivera's staff, unlike the previous one, knows how to adjust the break. There are flashes of good free football from this team.
And yes, I'm going to say this, NFC East is still ready to take.
However, they need to run games better. Given how impressive these employees are at adjusting breaks, they might have something if they didn't dig themselves out of double-digit deficits every other half.
7) Philadelphia Flyers
Philadelphia Flyers is a professional ice hockey club based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Philadelphia represent the National Hockey League Eastern Conference Capital Division. Appearing in the NHL as a result of the expansion of the league by 6 clubs, the Flyers were the first of these six who managed to win the Stanley Cup (in 1974 and 1975). Since then, Philadelphia have played six more times in the Cup final, but the Flyers have yet to win it again.
All of their home games Philadelphia play on Broad Street, from 1967 to 1996 at the Spectrum Ice Arena, and from 1996 to the present at the Wells Fargo Center. This street earned the Flyers the nickname Broad Street Bullies.
The Flyers' most important rivals are the Pittsburgh Penguins, the New York Rangers and the New Jersey Devils - clubs that Philadelphia often cross in the regular season and playoffs.
The Philadelphia Flyers became the second National Hockey League club ever to represent the capital of Pennsylvania. Its predecessor, the Philadelphia Quakers, was formed prior to the 1930-1931 regular season as an outsider from the Pittsburgh Pirates moved to Philadelphia. The owner of the club was the famous boxer Benny Leonard, who became the world lightweight boxing champion in the period 1917-1925.
However, the team in Philadelphia lasted only one season, in which they won 4 wins, 36 defeats and 4 draws. The win rate was 13.6%, the worst in NHL history until the 1974/75 season. Leonard's losses amounted to about $ 80,000, which forced him to stop investing in the club. As a result, the Quakers were disbanded due to lack of funding, and the club's last game, held on March 17, 1931 against the Chicago Blackhawks, ended in a 0-4 defeat.
Ed Snyder was the initiator of the return of big hockey to Philadelphia. In 1964, Snyder, as vice-president of the Philadelphia Eagles club of the National Football League, attending the matches of the NHL outsider Boston Bruins, noted for himself inexplicably high, in his opinion, attendance at home matches of the Bruins - more than 15 thousand fans on average per match. Assessing the great prospects of the hockey business, he decided to take part in the fight for a new NHL team. When the NHL announced its expansion from 6 teams to 12, Snyder raised the $ 2 million required for an entry fee, as well as provided guarantees from the city authorities for the construction of the Spectrum arena, after which on May 15, 1967, Philadelphia received the right to create an NHL team.
Bud Poyle became the general manager of the club, and Keith Allen became the head coach.
Snyder is also the author of the team's name. Together with his partners, he went through more than a dozen options before the word Flyers came to his mind. Interestingly, Snyder's team played their first few matches with a modified name - Fliers, which has the same meaning as Flyers.
8) Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers is a professional American football club, playing in the National Football League and based in Tampa, Florida. The team was founded in 1976 and is currently the Southern Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League. They are the only team in the division and have not moved from the old Western Division of the National Football Conference. The club joined the Seattle Seahawks in 1976 with the expansion of the NFL. The Buccaneers played their first season in the Western Division of the American Football Conference as part of a 1976 expansion plan. At the end of the season, they changed conferences with the Seattle Seahawks and became part of the NFC. The club is now owned by the Glazer family. The club holds home games at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.
The Buccaneers are the first team since the extended squad merger to win the division title and win the playoffs, and host and player of the 1979 Conference Championship matches. They are also the first team since the merger to end a victorious season starting with 10 or more rookies who came in the 2010 season. In 1976 and 1977, the Buccaneers lost their first 26 games. After a short winning streak in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the team was defeated for 14 consecutive seasons. Then, for 10 years, they competed in the playoffs and at the end of the 2002 season won the Super Bowl XXXVII final, but were unable to repeat the victory in that tournament; thus, the Buccaneers joined the New Orleans Saints and the New York Jets only as the NFL's Super Bowl Singles Team.
Tampa Bay is often used to refer to a geographic urban area containing a body of water, also known as Tampa Bay, which includes the localities of Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and Bradenton. Unlike Green Bay, Wisconsin, there is no municipality called Tampa Bay. In professional sports club names, Tampa Bay is a franchise used by the Buccaneers, Tampa Bay Rowdies, Tampa Bay Rowdies, Tampa Bay Lightning, Tampa Bay Storm. and others, meaning that they represent the entire region, not just Tampa or St. Petersburg.
9) Boston Bruins
The Boston Bruins is a professional hockey club playing in the National Hockey League. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. He plays home games at TD-Garden and is one of the oldest teams in the league. Also one of the Original Six teams, along with the Detroit Red Wings, Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers and Chicago Blackhawks. It is the first American team in the NHL and the second to win the Stanley Cup.
Debuting in 1924/25, the Boston Bruins were the first American team in NHL history. The general manager and coach of the team was Art Ross, whom the owner of the Bruins, millionaire Charles Adams, met during his trip to Canada in search of players.
In their first season, the Bruins were firmly in the bottom of the league with just 12 points in 30 games. The team's results improved next year, but not enough to make it to the playoffs. The immense popularity of hockey in Boston convinced Adams to spend $ 50,000 on new players ahead of the 1926-27 season. One of the newcomers is legendary guard Eddie Shore. The team immediately became one of the candidates to win the Stanley Cup, made it to the final, but lost to Ottawa.
Success came to the Bruins after two seasons, in 1929. Boston won its first Stanley Cup, beating the New York Rangers in two games in the final, thanks to a marvelous performance by goalkeeper Cecil “Tiny” Thompson, who finished the playoffs with a 0.60 goals per game average.
The first eight years of the 1960s were the most nightmarish in the history of the club. From 1959/60 to 1966/67, the Bruins never made the playoffs and finished last six times in the regular season.
Glimmers of hope began to break through in the 1966/67 season. That year, 18-year-old defender Bobby Orr, who had been closely watched by the Bruins since he was 12, became the league's top rookie. In the same season, control of the club passed to 34-year-old coach Harry Sinden, and the following year, as a result of an exchange with Chicago, Phil Esposito appeared in the team, and the Bruins "woke up".
Season 1999/2000. Having shown a dull game in the second half of the regular season, the Bruins lost almost all chances to make it to the playoffs a month before the end of the championship. The season, which began with a disagreement between striker Dmitry Khristich and general manager Harry Sinden, which brought Khristich, one of the team's top scorers to Toronto, ended with the exchange of fan favorite Ray Burke to the Colorado Avalanche. A dark spot fell on the Bruins by the 22-game suspension of defender Marty McSorley for hitting the head of Vancouver Canucks player Donald Brashear with a club. The encouraging news was the stable performance of striker Joe Thornton, who is starting to reach the high level expected from him.
At the end of the 2013/14 regular season, the Boston Bruins won the Presidential Cup for the second time in their history, but the club finished in the playoffs in the second round, losing seven games to its principal rivals from Montreal. Further, the team's results went down and during the next two seasons Boston did not play in the playoffs, and on February 7, 2017, Claude Julien was dismissed as head coach, under whose leadership the Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup in 2011. With the arrival of new head coach Bruce Cassidy, the Boston Bruins returned to the ranks of the league leaders, and in 2019 reached the final again, where they lost to the St. Louis Blues in seven matches.
10) San Francisco 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers is a professional American football club serving in the Western Division of the National Football Conference of the National Football League. The team was founded in 1946 and played in the All-American Football Conference, and in 1949 became the NFL after the merger of the two leagues. From 1981 to 1994, the club won 5 Super Bowls. With five wins, the team tied for second place with the Dallas Cowboys for the most championship titles won.
The 49ers name comes from the nickname given to the gold diggers who swept into Northern California in 1849 during the California Gold Rush.
The 49ers entered professional football in 1946 as a member of the All-American Football Conference. They were founded by forest tycoon Tony Morabito, who tried several times to get an NFL team for the Bay Area. Morabito was one of the first to realize that with the advent of air travel, truly national professional sports leagues are now possible.
Indeed, the 49ers were the very first team in four major sports to emerge on the West Coast. The 49ers have never been able to oust the dominant Cleveland Brown and are lucky enough to be in the same conference with the Browns. However, they were clearly the second-strongest franchise in the AAFC, both on and off the pitch. Thus, along with the Browns and the first Baltimore Colts, they were admitted to the National Football League in 1950. The team's name comes from the California Gold Rush gold seekers who came to the San Francisco area in 1849.
The 49ers renewed their roster before and during the 2019 season, such as making a defensive ending for Nick Bose, signing midfielder Tevin Coleman, traded for veteran midfielder Dee Ford, and acquiring successor Emmanuel Sanders from the Denver Broncos before the trade deadline. After Garoppolo returned from injury, San Francisco started 8-0 and ultimately took first place in the NFC with a 13-3 score thanks to improved play on both sides of the pitch. After Coleman, Matt Braida and Raheem Mostert, the 49ers enjoyed dominant committee running play, finishing second in fast yards and first in quick touchdowns.
Combined with an efficient passing game from Garoppolo, the 49ers scored 479 points, which was the second best in the league. On the defensive, they were just 281.8 yards per game behind and also finished with the best pass defense and 48 sacks. In their first playoff appearance since losing to Seattle Seahawks 23-17 in the 2013 NFC Championship game, the 49ers hosted the Minnesota Vikings in the divisional round, winning 27-10 before beating the Green Bay Packers 37-20 in the NFC. conference championship games. This allowed San Francisco to complete its seventh Super Bowl match for the first time since 2012.
In the Super Bowl, they faced the Kansas City Chiefs, who made their first Super Bowl trip since 1970. The 49ers' defense was able to hold back Chief quarterback Patrick Mahomes and their attack for most of the game, leading 20-10 with just over 8 minutes left. However, Mahomes' 3rd and 15th finish before Tyrick Hill turned the momentum the other way, with the Chiefs topping 21 straight points to win the 31-20 thriller for their first Super Bowl championship in half a century. With the defeat, the Nines were unable to equalize the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers for Super Bowl wins with 6 points.
Everything you need to know about the Apple Titan, Apple's autonomous car- 10 Facts by Bemorepanda
Rumors of Apple's involvement in the automotive industry are not just rumors, given that several hundred people are already working in the prototype development department of a car, and people in Apple's management have already met in Austria with several car manufacturers, including with officials from Magna Steyr, a company that assembles cars for several brands, from Mercedes-Benz to BMW. Here's everything you need to know about what Apple could do in the automotive industry by Bemorepanda.
1. Apple has a mountain of money that lies unspent
$ 155 billion in cash. It made a profit of 18 billion in the first quarter of fiscal year 2015 alone (October-December 2014). BMW and Mercedes-Benz, together, are worth a little over 105 billion dollars (BMW: 83 billion, Mercedes-Benz: 23.8 billion). Tesla is worth $ 25 billion. Romania's gross domestic product was, last year, about 190 billion dollars. That's to put things in perspective. By the way, Apple's market value is about $ 483 billion…
This is what Apple's headquarters will look like in the near future. Really, cities do not build Apple?
2. Apple already has hundreds of people working on this project
According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, Apple already has several hundred employees working on this project, and the team will reach 1,000 people. So no, it's not just a rumor. Cars with the Apple logo on them are already on the streets of California, and the project is clearly one for autonomous cars…
3. The project is essential for Apple, given who runs it
This is not a side project, given that Steve Zadesky, Apple's vice president, has been named at the helm, none other than the one who led the development teams of the two products that brought Apple to where it is today: iPod and iPhone . His appointment as team leader shows that Apple considers involvement in the automotive field as a priority.
4. We don't know yet if it will be a car that will go into production, but we can guess
Analysts are still divided on whether to produce a stand-alone car as part of a future car range, or just want to build a prototype to show the car world what an autonomous car should look like. -would it facilitate both the development of our own solutions for current car manufacturers, but also the imposition of their Apple ecosystem? Hard to say.
However, the fact that they also hired top car designers shows us that we will have a finished product, at least in the form of a prototype. And Apple is not used to developing only technologies, but wants absolute control to develop a top product. So we're inclined to believe that Apple will still produce a production car as part of a strategy to revolutionize the field.
5. Apple has hired top designers from car manufacturers. And that fills our souls with joy
First of all, Jonathan Ive, Apple's design director, is a big fan of cars, with an impressive collection already in the garage. Secondly, the team working on this prototype includes Mark Newson, who has already drawn a prototype for Ford, Julian Honig, who has already done the exterior design for the Audi Q3, Audi A4 and also has in his CV a few years at Lamborghini, but also Aaron von Minden, who was part of the team that created the famous Gina concept for BMW.
In other words, if they wanted to think only of the technologies inside the cars of others, why would they turn to specialized designers outside of them?
6. Where it has no expertise, Apple simply buys it
In addition to car designers, Apple is able to buy, if necessary, entire companies that develop technologies of interest. In addition, it has invested in people who have already headed the research and development departments of major manufacturers (Johann Jungwirth, former president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz's North American R&D division, for example).
A 1999 design by Mark Newson for Ford. Ugly today, but beautiful in his day
Several company executives also met in Austria with several carmakers, including representatives from Magna Steyr, a division of Magna International, a company that assembles cars for several European premium brands (MINI, BMW, Mercedes-Benz etc). So creating a coherent team, able to introduce it to the automotive industry, is absolutely no problem for Apple.
7. The Titan car will be an electric one with advanced autonomous car functions
Apple's interest is especially for cars with advanced autonomous driving functions, because in them we spend about 2 hours every working day, and these two hours can be the basis for consuming media content through the Apple platform.
Building an electric car is simpler than making a combustion engine car, and the horizon of the 2020s will bring us the first fully autonomous cars. Apple cannot miss the two new technologies essential for the future of mankind.
It is rumored that, unlike Tesla, which produces cars with sporty valences, Apple would initially focus on building a minivan, a stylish people carrier. Remains to be seen
8. Profits would be made from the sale of applications throughout the life of the machine
Here, in fact, is Apple's interest: making huge profits by rethinking revenue sources in a particular industry. In the case of the automotive industry, the fact that the car will drive alone means that the two hours a day can be dedicated to interacting with Apple devices in the car.
Schedule the destination, possibly choose the route, then let the car drive. But Apple would like to keep an eye on a screen…
Then people would be willing to pay significantly more for a car app. Today, users of Apple mobile devices spend, on average, over $ 40 a year on applications. In a car, this revenue could even increase several times, especially if the applications come as an option to a car that could cost over $ 40,000 at launch. Apple already has over 800 million iTunes users, and its involvement in the automotive industry, both as a carmaker and as a technology provider, could much better monetize at least some of this huge user base.
9. If you enter the automotive industry, Apple must build or buy processes and production units
Although appealing to a third party like Magna Steyr, who could assemble her car in the first instance, is the shortest path to the automotive industry, the reality is that you can't count on it until you have complete control over the entire production chain. It's absolutely no problem for Apple to build cutting-edge plants, just with the money from quarterly profits, and Apple can make a difference here, especially since it would start from scratch.
BMW is already building wind cars at the Leipzig pilot plant. And it's just the beginning!
Apple could even buy Tesla, and a combination of the two companies would allow it to enter the market with fully autonomous electric cars even earlier than 2020. If Elon Musk, the owner of Tesla, would like this, it's a whole other story ( the two companies have completely different market philosophies).
10. The Apple car will not be on the market before 2017, but in 2020 the car world will not be the same
Even if it wants to make its own car, Apple will not be able to launch it before the end of 2017, and only if it uses a subcontractor to build it (like Magna Steyr). Unlike computers and telephones, the construction of a car is much more closely controlled and the restrictions related to safety and environmental protection are much more numerous. Also, the production cycles are much longer, a generation of a model lasting 7-8 years, not 18 months as in the case of a telephone.
But the entry of Google, Apple and Tesla into the realm of automakers will forever change the automotive world as we know it now. The only ones who have reacted to the futile ambitions of IT companies are BMW (in the field of electric cars rethought from scratch) and Volvo (in the field of car safety), the others still have to regain ground, although they do it quickly. However, the huge amounts of money available to IT companies also mean a very fast scalability of new technological solutions, which will lead to the much faster adoption of electric and autonomous machines, if the IT giants finally decide to invest their electronic devices than driving and watching other cars stuck in urban traffic.
