The Office Edition Of The 10 Year Challenge Shows How The Actors Lives Have Changed

Well time flies, not only in our daily lives but on the TV screens as well. Remember when Pam and Jim found out that they’re expecting a baby? Well in few months time, that will be 10 years ago. How did they look back then? How do they look today? We compiled a series of pictures where we compare the cast of The Office and how they’ve changed in 10 years. And it’s not only the beards that have appeared. Some things have disappeared… Like that infamous golden haircut that Ryan used to rock 10 years ago.  John Krasinski has been up to way much more than lifting weights, wearing tank tops and growing a beard. Today John is not …

Sarah Silverman slams doctor for giving her a creepily inappropriate mammogram.

Getting an annual mammogram is one of the most important things a woman can do for her health. Finding breast cancer early reduces the risk of dying from the disease by 25-30% or more. Women should begin having mammograms yearly at age 40, or earlier if they’re at high risk. Actress-comedian Sarah Silverman’s recent experience getting her annual mammogram was a wake up call for her that has a lot of women nodding in agreement. However, the light-bulb moment wasn’t about her health, but a realization about the importance of confronting men in positions of power.

No-deal Brexit ferry contract scrapped

Could Channel ports cope with no-deal Brexit? No-deal Brexit ferry contract queried A really simple guide to Brexit What preparations are being made for a no-deal? Seaborne Freight was awarded the £13.8m contract in December to run a freight service between Ramsgate and Ostend, Belgium, in the event that Britain leaves the EU without a deal. The government was criticised for choosing Seaborne Freight, a company with no ships or trading history, and for leaving too little time to establish the new ferry service before the Brexit deadline of 29 March. And local politicians in both Ramsgate and Ostend warned that the ports at both ends of the route will not be ready the deadline. At the time, the government …

‘Ground-breaking’ pay deal for Hermes staff

Hermes’s 15,000 couriers can deliver parcels in whichever order they want and will be able to continue to do so if they take up the new arrangement. New couriers wishing to take up the pay holiday terms will have to follow routes specified by Hermes.

Unusually Warm Period In Greenland Allowed Vikings To Thrive

The climate of Greenland when Vikings were living there has been a long-term subject of scientific and popular debate, yet has only been tested very indirectly. The first study of proxy data closer to home confirms the southern region was warmer during the occupation than in centuries before and after, and about the same temperature as today. Spend much time discussing climate change online and you’ll encounter people attempting to disprove thousands of peer-reviewed studies with a handful of claims. A favorite is that Greenland was warmer 1,000 years ago than today. Therefore, the “logic” goes, the whole planet must have been warmer, therefore human-induced global warming can’t be real. The last part of this case is pure bunkum – for …

‘Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club’ Recap: The Regina George Of The House Betches

Welcome back to another week of Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club. This week, MTV has conveniently moved the show to Monday, so it directly conflicts with both Vanderpump Rules and The Bachelor. This is really proving my dedication to Panos and Lindsay. Tonight we’re getting two new VIP Hosts, and Lindsay will decide what to do with Jonitta and Gaby after last week’s fight. Should be a good episode! We pick up where we left off, with Lindsay and Panos arriving at the Host villa to deal with Gaby and Jonitta. Jonitta is wearing a shirt that says “LIKE, REALIZING STUFF,” which I flat-out need in my life. Lindsay is in full conflict mediator mode, and she explains in her thickest …

Political world mourns the loss of John Dingell

Washington (CNN)The news of former Michigan Democratic Rep. John Dingell’s death shook the political world Thursday night as memorials poured in from political leaders spanning his decades as the House’s longest-serving member. Former President Barack Obama mourned Dingell, calling him proof that change “does not always come with a flash, but instead with steady, determined effort.” “John sat beside me when I signed the Affordable Care Act — a law that nearly cut in half the uninsured rate in America. He had a long tradition of introducing legislation on the first day of each new Congress to guarantee health care for every single American,” Obama said in a statement. “Because of him, we’ve come closer to that vision than ever …

China just quietly wrote off a chunk of Cameroon’s debt. Why the secrecy?

(CNN)When top Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi met Cameroon President Paul Biya in the capital Yaounde last month and wrote off a chunk of the African country’s debt, the deal very nearly went unnoticed. But while the news report was wrong, its release did force the Chinese government to speak publicly about what type of deal had been reached. Last week, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying told CNN: “China agreed to waive the interest-free inter-governmental debt that Cameroon had not paid back by the end of 2018.” That debt was worth $78.4 million. Cameroon’s total debt is 5.8 trillion Central African CFA francs ($10 billion), about a third of which is owed to China, according to the International Monetary Fund. …

Twitter Q4 beats on sales of $909M and EPS of $0.33, but MAUs slump to just 321M

After strong results from Facebook and Snap this quarter, all eyes were on Twitter to see if the other big, publicly listed social network could deliver a hat trick of growth. If we judged the company on financials alone, Twitter did not disappoint. The company reported Q4 revenues of $909 million (up 24 percent on a year ago) and diluted earnings per share of $0.33 with a net income of $244 million. On average, analysts had been expecting revenues of $859.5 million on an EPS of $0.25. However, Twitter’s achilles heel remains user growth. It has now slumped to 321 million monthly active users, falling short even of estimates that were expecting a decline. Shares are equally slumping in pre-market trading, down …

Japan’s deputy prime minister blames women ‘not giving birth’ for declining population

(CNN)Japan’s deputy prime minister has come under fire after apparently blaming childless women for Japan’s demographic woes. “It gave a false impression without conveying the meaning of my original remark,” Aso explained, without clarifying what he had actually wanted to say. Shrinking Japan Japan is a “super-aged” nation, meaning more than 20% of its population is older than 65. It has been on a steady demographic decline since the 1970s. In 2017, fewer than 950,000 babies were born while the number of deaths rose to a postwar high of 1.3 million, according to the Ministry of Health and Labor. Tokyo, a city of more than 9 million people, has the lowest birth rate of all the 47 prefectures in Japan, …

The next integration evolution blockchain

Bilgin Ibryam Here is one way to look at distributed ledger technologies (DLT) and blockchain in the context of integration evolution. Over the years, businesses and their systems are getting more integrated, forming industry-specific trustless networks, and blockchain technology is in the foundation of this evolutionary step. Enterprise integration Similarly, organizations also need to share data and functionality in a controlled way among themselves. They need to integrate and automate the key business processes that extend outside the walls of the organizations. The latter is an extension of EAI and achieved by exchanging structured messages using agreed upon message standards referred to as business-to-business (B2B) integration. Evolution of integration Evolution of integration technologies Data integration approach is used for system …
