So, for example, if a pitcher is trying to work on changing the arm angle at which he throws, he would want to wear the Halo Sport in the morning in the 20 minutes or so before beginning his 10 a.m. workout. Even after stretching, the pitchers throwing session would still be within the devices 60-to-90-minute effectiveness window. San Francisco Giants pitcher Tyler Beede And the benefit may not be limited solely to what a player can do on his own, Head says. In fact, the Halo Sport improves learning as well. So players will be more likely to internalize training feedback from coaches if it happens during that time frame. The benefit even extends to getting stronger, Head says. So if a players biggest weakness is, excuse the pun, his strength, he will do well to wear the Halo Sport prior to doing his weight liftingand may even want to wear it for the first 20 minutes of those sessions, Head says.

Light determines how we see the world. Take a golf ball: we can see the shine on it, make out the structure or even perceive it as a flat disk because in a certain light we cannot see any shadow. Knowledge of light and how we perceive it can help designers to make our life and work easier. Measurements made with a cubic photometer and software have now been used to make a systematic analysis of the light in a room. Sylvia Pont, appointed as Antoni van Leeuwenhoek professor in 2016 for her work in the Perceptual Intelligence lab (PI or π-lab), will present her research during her inaugural lecture on Friday 31 March.

Meunier and Tournebuf both of whom are French approached the collection from an outsiders perspective, noting the difference between what they saw in the American snapshots and similar European photos from the same time period. Where the pose in front of the car and the house was a constant in the American images, Europeans were more likely to pose at the dinner table. Today and even more so than yesterday we use photography as means of representation and self-representation, says Meunier. Capturing ourselves in front of beauty and sharing that result with friends and family is even more prevalent today with the explosion of social media. So even though the mid-century world of American Dream is different from our own, the instinct is something today's viewers will likely understand.

Known as fast processing, this process formerly enabled technology companies to hire and sponsor employees from foreign countries within just a few weeks. In addition, with a cap on the number of H-1B visas granted every year in the U.S. currently being considered, renewing said visas may be an issue. Under current rules, H1-B visas are valid for three years. Normally, extending these visas or even officially beginning the immigration process to the U.S. would follow after technology employees based abroad had decided to move to the U.S. on a permanent basis. In an effort to urge U.S. technology firms to start looking at local talent first, President Trump has been pushing for a great deal of visa policy changes.

The NBA draft lottery is basically hope made manifest. If you're in it, it's because the season you just put together wasn't any good, and you're hoping (there's that word again) an influx of young talent will make you better. The conceptthe feelingof hope is inherently unquantifiable. It's based on something other than facts for the most part. It's a wish . Still, anyone looking at this year's projected lottery participants can see there are varying degrees of rationality attached to each team's hopes. Even if we can't apply a specific measurement, some clubs definitely have more than others. Having Karl-Anthony Towns already achieving stardom, for example, tends to swell the positivity stockpile. Based on present talent, assets and even management, we have enough to rank each lottery team's futurewhich we'll define here as a three-year timeline. For each squad, we'll highlight the main reasons for hope and despair, just to keep things fully in perspective. Begin Slideshow

Attacks against Southeast Asian-Americans have made the news more often as of late. The perpetrators often associate the victims with Islam, even though they're not Muslim. This demonstrates how the victims of Islamophobia aren't just Muslims—despite what many may believe—and that the racialized component of Islamophobia, or the association made between skin color, language and national origin, leaves a direct impression on Islamophobes and allows for them to widen the scope of anti-Muslim violence. In January, South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT), national South Asian advocacy organization, reported that attacks against South Asian Americans has returned to levels seen in the aftermath of 9/11. During the 2006 elections alone, SAALT found that out of 200 documented hate crimes, 95% of the incidents were motivated by anti-Muslim sentiment.

Semiconductors are the cornerstone of modern electronics. They're used in solar cells, light emitting diodes (LEDs), microprocessors in laptops and cell phones, and more. Most of them are made of silicon, but silicon has its limitations. So for decades researchers have been exploring new materials with properties that make them good candidates for better, lighter, and cheaper energy-efficient lamps, solar cells, and evensomeday, perhaps – solar energy-harnessing "paint."

The plot is great: Django (Jamie Foxx) is a freed slave-cum-bounty hunter who is on a mission to find out what happened to his wife. Before Guardians of the Galaxy catapulted director James Gunn's career into the stratosphere he had worked on another superhero movie, albeit one that's about as far from the mainstream as you can get. Super sees Rainn Wilson as a chef who decides to turn into a vigilante after his wife leaves him. What ensues is the blackest of black comedy, with Wilson fighting through bad guy after bad guy, splattering graphic violence all over the shop. Think Deadpool but that bit ruder and you are halfway there - Super is a devilish delight. Requiem For a Dream is a hard, hard watch. Based on Hubert Selby Jr's novel about addicts in New York, director Darren Aronofsky doesn't shirk on showing what drugs do to even the best people.
