National Enquirer allegedly ran stories by Trump before publishing during campaign

During the presidential campaign, National Enquirer executives sent digital copies of the tabloid's articles and cover images related to Donald Trump and his political opponents to Trump's attorney Michael Cohen in advance of publication, according to three people with knowledge of the matter - an unusual practice that speaks to the close relationship between Trump and David Pecker, chief executive of American Media Inc., the Enquirer's parent company.

Column: Wendell Carter Jr. is not the sexy pick but the smart one for the Bulls

Unrealistic expectations diminished this NBA draft for the Bulls, who set their fans up for disappointment a year ago when they traded All-Star Jimmy Butler and tanked last season. Perception distorted Thursday night’s reality.

#China has ramped up its anti-American rhetoric, warning #US farmers would be the ones who suffer the fallout of a full-blown #tradewar between the world's two biggest economies, while offering to join forces with Europe to fight Donald #Trump's 'protectionism'.

#China has also showed willingness to work more closely with the #EuropeanUnion, which has also become embroiled in its own trade dispute with the Trump administration. China said on Thursday (June 21) it would hold a trade summit with the #EuropeanCommission on June 25 to promote bilateral economic and trade cooperation. China also reiterated its criticism of Mr Trump's latest salvo in the tit-for-tat trade dispute, accusing Washington of 'extortion' and threatening to stand its ground in a dispute expected to hurt the economies of both countries.

Almost lost in all the noise and chaos of Trump's more recent crimes against human rights, this article from just a couple of weeks ago exposes another of his lies.

Trump has a severely distorted view of ordinary reality and a severely corrupted memory of events. With that combination, he's incapable of knowing what truth is, let alone speaking it.
In combination with his arrogant idea that he "has one of the world's great memories," he's a clear and present danger -- to the world at large..

The score of lies keeps rising.

From the article linked below:

"Sixteen thousand people, many of them in Texas, for whatever reason that is. People went out in their boats to watch the hurricane,” Trump said. “That didn't work out too well.”

One Texas official said: "I'll be sure to invite the president to ride out the next hurricane in a jon boat in Galveston Bay the next time one approaches"
The Coast Guard rescued about 11,000 people and 1,400 pets during the storm
....
Texas officials on the call were not pleased with the president's characterization of the Coast Guard rescue efforts, the paper reported.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez credited civilians for making an “extraordinary effort” with their own boats to rescue neighbors, relatives and pets in the storm.

“I didn't see anyone taking the approach that would reflect his comments,” Gonzalez told the newspaper. "I'll be sure to invite the president to ride out the next hurricane in a jon boat in Galveston Bay the next time one approaches," he added.

Hurricane Harvey flooded the Texas coast with 52 inches of rain last year.

The record rain fall led to law enforcement putting out the call for help.

The Houston Police Department tweeted a plea asking anyone with a boat to volunteer.

Some Texans went out on kayaks and canoes to rescue others. There were even some died in the flood waters while trying to rescue their neighbors.

Crocus, version 2
In this iteration, I’ve used multiple exposures to affect the tone and coloration of the flower. This is a double exposure using Canon’s Bright blending mode. The first exposure was a straight shot of the flower on a light box. The second exposure was a slow ½ second pan of the crocus flower. Canon’s Bright blending mode makes a pixel by pixel comparison of the two images and keeps only the brightest pixel from each image. For this reason, the background white from the first image is unchanged by the second exposure since nothing in the second image can be brighter than absolute white. Only the flower is subject to change and only to the extent that the pixels in the second image are lighter than those of the first. And because the second image was a pan, its individual pixels are a blend of the various parts of the image through which they’ve been moved. Thus, the stem of the flower is a kind of grey tone because those pixels in the second image were a blend of the original stem and the white background (both of which were panned through this space) and this, in turn, was lighter than the first image which contained the original stem only. I know…it sounds complicated. The best way to really grasp it is just to try it yourself. Seeing is understanding.

Google Showcases Google Assistant With New Phone Booth Demos

Google is teaming up with +T-Mobile to install experimental demos in signature T-Mobile stores in Chicago and San Francisco.

The demos aim to blend old tech with new tech — they are styled after phone booths, and inside them, customers will be able to both demo hardware like the LG G7 ThinQ, JBL Pulse 3, and Google Home Mini, and software — the Google Assistant. Of course, once you have experienced Google Assistant, you will be able to buy compatible devices from T-Mobile.

Three type of booths/demos will be showcased,
- “Tiny Gym,” basically involves customers asking Google Assistant to play a workout playlist while customers use resistance bands.
- “Tiny Kitchen” involves Assistant looking up recipes and setting timers for cooking time.
- “Tiny Museum,” in which customers can pick up a phone and use Google Lens to learn about paintings and artists featured in the Art Institute of Chicago.

Demos will be running for next three months, and you can check them out for yourselves at T-Mobile’s flagship stores in Chicago and San Francisco.

This isn’t the first time we have seen the phone booth demos, which first showed up at CES earlier in the year. Then, recently, Google launched a mini-golf pop-up in New York City, in which each hole was aimed at showcasing what Google Assistant can do in a different room of the house. It’s likely we will see more experiences like this as Google continues to take on the competition.

How To Fix Windows 10 Annoyances

"Windows 10 starts as a very annoying operating system. The Start menu is full of games like Candy Crush, advertisements are all over the place, and useless icons like People litter the taskbar. Here’s how to eliminate all those annoyances."

"Out of the box, your PC includes apps you probably don’t want. Every Windows 10 install starts with a Candy Crush game like Candy Crush Soda Saga. You’ll also see other annoying apps like Bubble Witch 3 Saga and FarmVille 2: Country Escape. Thanks, Microsoft."
