It's easy to include Killmonger in the sequel. He can be in the spiritual plane. I'm not sure I want Glover unless he's Aaron Davis again. Like the Prowler comes across vibranium or something. Otherwise, I don't like hiring actors because of who they are. I want the best performers for the roles.

The 6 Best Screenshot Tools For Linux

A great thing about Linux desktop environments are the screenshot tools. Every desktop, from Gnome to LXDE have one, and it makes taking pictures inside of Linux super easy. Still, for as useful as the included screenshot tools for Linux are in most desktop environments, they tend to be basic, and not have a lot of advanced features. That’s why in this list, they’re going to go over some of the best replacement screenshot tools for Linux!

Although the list is really about desktop capture tools on the browser front both Firefox and Vivaldi also have pretty good capture ability for webpages.

Cumbria and the Lake District: Spring 2018, No. 12

https://www.iancylkowski.com/cumbria-spring-2018/

It's possible to get up-close and personal with the top of Stockghyll Force in Ambleside, just make sure you've got a steady foot. When we hiked this gorge the day was rather hazy, producing a soft light that was perfect for shooting waterfalls. However, upon scrambling down to get to this view of Upper Stockghyll Force the sun finally broke through and illuminated the whole scene in golden light.

Senator: There's a 'Very Real' Possibility Justice Kennedy is About to Retire, and I'm Told He Wants to Be Replaced By a Republican
Guy Benson |Posted: May 23, 2018 1:05 PM | TownHall

We've been writing about the possibility of a looming Supreme Court vacancy for some time now, having been informed by a very well-placed source last spring that Justice Anthony Kennedy was on the brink of retirement. Here we are more than a year later, and those rumors have only gained steam -- with the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee going so far as to urge Kennedy to get on with it and announce his intentions as soon as possible. Among the members of the Senate who are most plugged into the goings on of the Supreme Court -- out of both professional and family pedigree -- is Utah's Mike Lee, who also happens to be on President Trump's SCOTUS short list. Sen. Lee joined Benson & Harf last evening to discuss an array of topics, but his intriguing and thorough answer to my question about the Court piqued my interest. Skip ahead to the six minute mark for that piece of the exchange:

So that's how Michael Jackson did it! Thee was a peg from the floor attached to his shoe!

QUOTE: “Personally, I believe it’s not possible for me to cheat gravity even with this shoe,” study co-author Dr. Manjul Tripathi, a neurosurgeon at the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research in Chandigarh, India, tells Inverse. “However, as M.J. showed us the way, with good acrobatic practices and development of core muscular strength it’s possible.”

Day time driving around Lofoten

Making our way down through the Lofoten Archipelago, we stopped our car over a dozen times to check out the scenery. It really is incredible. Anyhow, one of the stops I decided to actually take a photo. See, I do take photos in the middle of the day… 😛

Anyhow, this may not be one of my prime landscapes I go for, but I just wanted to share a typical scene which is common around each and every corner in this little island group.

Google takes legal action against scammers targeting local small businesses and launches tools to report bad behavior

Today Google announced it is taking legal action against businesses that claim to be able to improve a business’ Google Search rankings, or that charge money for services that Google offers for free. They named specifically Kydia Inc. d/b/a BeyondMenu, Point Break Media, LLC (and affiliated entities), and Supreme Marketing Group, Inc. d/b/a Small Business Solutions.

There is also a new tool for business owners to report scammy practices and policy violations :
https://support.google.com/business/contact/gmb_3p_complaints

And Google is also launching the Google My Business Partners program to give business owners a directory of trusted partners to choose from when they need help managing their listings.

Here's what else small businesses can do to protect themselves:

* Verify whether someone is actually reaching out from Google.

Often these fraudulent callers will use language like, “Google specialist” or “calling about or on behalf of Google.” To verify whether a caller is actually calling from Google, you can ask that they send you an email from a Google email account to further verify their identity. Anyone who works for Google should be able to send you an email from an @google.com email account.

* Claim your business for free using Google My Business.
https://support.google.com/business/answer/6300717

* Learn what’s possible and not possible when it comes to search engine marketing.

Although you can pay for ads, there is no way to pay for better ranking.

* If you get an unwanted robocall, hang up the phone.

* Report unwanted callers to Google, and in the US, also the FTC or the FCC.

Google: https://support.google.com/business/contact/gmb_3p_complaints
FTC: https://complaints.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx
FCC: https://consumercomplaints.fcc.gov/hc/en-us/articles/202873880-Rules-and-Resources-for-Dealing-with-Unwanted-Calls-and-Texts

* If you are in the US, register your personal number with the National Do Not Call Registry (1-888-382-1222).

TESS was launched on April 18, 2018, with a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. This new planet-hunter will focus on stars between 30 and 300 light-years away. It will survey more than 200,000 target stars, viewing large parts of the sky for 27 days at a time.

For its two-year mission, astronomers divided the sky into 26 sectors: TESS will use four unique wide-field cameras to map 13 sectors encompassing the southern sky during its first year of observations and 13 sectors of the northern sky during the second year, altogether covering 85% of the sky.

The telescope will be watching for phenomena called transits.

A transit occurs when a planet passes in front of its star from the observer’s perspective, causing a periodic and regular dip in the star’s brightness.

The brightness of these target stars will allow astronomers to use spectroscopy, the study of the absorption and emission of light, to determine a planet’s mass, density and atmospheric composition. Water, and other key molecules, in its atmosphere can give us hints about a planets’ capacity to harbor life.

On May 17, TESS passed about 5,000 miles (8,050 km) from the Moon, which provided a gravity assist that helped the spacecraft sail toward its final working orbit.

TESS will undergo one final thruster burn on May 30 to enter its science orbit around Earth.

This highly elliptical orbit will maximize the amount of sky the telescope can image, allowing it to continuously monitor large swaths of the sky.

TESS is expected to begin science operations in mid-June after reaching this orbit and completing camera calibrations.

As part of camera commissioning, the TESS team snapped a two-second test exposure using one of its four cameras.

The image, centered on the southern constellation Centaurus, reveals more than 200,000 stars. The edge of the Coalsack Nebula is in the right upper corner and the bright star Beta Centauri is visible at the lower left edge.

TESS is expected to cover more than 400 times as much sky as shown in this image with its four cameras during its initial two-year search for exoplanets.

When all this is over, these two MUST be held accountable.

"It seemed they had decided by then that they didn't care who their nominee was, how he got elected or what effects having a foreign power influence our election would have on the nation, as long as they won."
