The latter was only found in 70% of homes down seven percentage points from the last time the survey was given out. One reason for the fall of Blu-ray/DVD players might be that smart TVs equipped with streaming services like Amazon Video, Netflix, Hulu and others have, in many ways, removed the need for traditional physical media. Glued to the tube All great in their own way, one area where TVs, smartphones and PCs are not on par with one another is how much time we spend in front of them watching video content. According to a study conducted by Nielsen , adults aged 18 years or older spent a monstrous 509,196,299,668 gross minutes watching TV content in Q4 of 2016. That number is in addition to the 63,637,309,003 minutes spent streaming TV through a connected device like a Roku Ultra , Amazon Fire TV or Google Chromecast for a total of 572,833,608,671 minutes of well-wasted TV time.

Weems cautions against pushing children too far, but helping them face their fears in a safe way. He recommends cognitive behavior therapy for youth with more serious difficulties following a traumatic event or natural disaster. Turn off the TV Previous work by Weems and colleagues found that children watching Gustav-related TV coverage was associated with their PTSD symptoms post-Gustav. Subsequent analyses revealed the relationship between TV viewing and post-Gustav symptoms of PTSD was significant only for children who had high levels prior to the hurricane. Parents of children with anxiety disorders such as PTSD should recognize the potential effects of media, Weems says. Parents don't necessarily need to keep their kids from watching the coverage, but it is best that they're not glued to the TV, he says. Parents should limit viewing and process the information with their kids.

Ostensibly quoting from a monograph of Campbell’s, Vonnegut writes, “America is the wealthiest nation on Earth, but its people are mainly poor, and poor Americans are urged to hate themselves.” To quote the American humorist Kin Hubbard, ‘It aint no disgrace to be poor, but might as well be.’ It is in fact a crime for an American to be poor, even though America is a nation of poor. Every other nation has folk traditions of men who were poor but extremely wise and virtuous, and therefore more estimable than anyone with power and gold. No such tales are told by the American poor. They mock themselves and glorify their betters. The meanest eating or drinking establishment, owned by a man who is himself poor, is very likely to have a sign on its wall asking this cruel question: ‘if you’re so smart why aint you rich?’ There will also be an American flag no larger than a child’s hand glued to a lollipop stick and flying from the cash register.

Do you like to binge-watch a TV series? I dont do it often. Hardly ever, in fact. But yep, I’ve done it before. For me, it’s one of life’s simple pleasures. Every once in awhile, I’ll find a series totallybinge-worthy.” It can make you a little crazy, especially if you spend the better part of the night glued to the TV. But it’s pretty frigginenjoyable. One series in particular that's binge-worthy is HBO’s Silicon Valley . If you’re unfamiliar, it’s about a team of young IT entrepreneurs who launch a startup called Pied Piper. The show chronicles their successes and failures along the way. It’s super funny and perfect if you’re at all entrepreneurially inclined or just like to geek out on tech. But I also think there are some golden lessons digital marketers can take away from the show. After all, even though it’s a comedy series with some wacked out episodes, it does have a lot of truth in it.

Spyshots usually provide a very rough idea of what an automaker is up to. The psychedelic camo test cars normally wear make it terribly hard for onlookers to figure out the details of prototypes before they are launched. Every once in a while though, our luck turns around and we catch a break, as it happened this week with a BMW Z4 test car. A few spy shots are currently circling online showing a prototype with a piece of paper glued to the passenger side dash, telling us almost everything about it. According to the test sheet, we’re looking at what will probably be the entry-level model in the Z4 range the sDrive20i. @Motor1 The badge suggests that the power is going solely to the rear wheels using a 2-liter four-cylinder engine under the hood codename B48B20O1. What that tells us is that this is actually a downtuned version of the B48 mill otherwise used on 30i models with 252 PS.

Both the medical and food industries have special requirements for cleanability and materials. If your cables will go into harsh environments, you may need to use special materials, and also consider using much larger bends for extreme heat (where electrical resistance increases) or extreme cold (where brittleness increases). Each application has its own demands. Prototyping Your New Design All products go through iterations of design-build-test, and strain relief is no exception. Happily, most designs can easily be tested using 3D printing . For designs intended to be manufactured from an elastomer, try printing in a rubber-like material for testing. If your design is destined to be made of a rigid yet flexible plastic, you can print in a strong and flexible nylon material . Designs which will be molded can be printed in halves and glued together, while slip-on designs can be tested in nearly their final form.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. The shredded 6'3", 218-pounder in a 2XL Mike Bibby throwback cannot catch a break. The harder he tries, the uglier it gets. It was his idea to golf. Why exactly is unknown. At the extravagant Topgolf driving range, Allen Robinson lines up his feet, adjusts his grip, switches up clubs and keeps his eye on the ball, only to whiff and slice and hook and hack away. Several shots look out! ricochet off the adjacent ball dispenser. A Happy Gilmore response is expected, yet through 60 swings, Robinson is remarkablycalm. He doesn't chuck his 3-wood, no. He's devoid of any emotion. At one point, he even walks over to the touch screen to dial up a more challenging game in which players must target specific, color-coded greens on this fairway. All that decision does is net a negative score. When he's finished, Robinson lounges on a couch inside his Topgolf bay, eats pepperoni pizza and is glued to a Cavs game on the TV above.

For a man who built his retail empire with brick and mortar, Kishore Biyani, rather uncharacteristically, has his online address — his email idvertically inscribed on the doors to his massive cabin on the 10th floor of Future Retail in the Mumbai suburb of Vikhroli West. Three wordsSimplicity, Happiness and Indiannesshang on the wall next to the chairman’s door. "KB (as he is called by colleagues) is the most accessible man,” says a member of his staff. "But he needs to be reminded about the mails,” he mischievously grins. Biyani’s cabin is spartan: bright colours are absent and the walls are as white as the sightscreen at the Indian Premier League (IPL), which has Fashion Big Bazaar (FBB), the group’s apparel chain, as the official style sponsor. Biyani, in white shirt and blue trousers, is glued to his armoury of iPad and iPhone. "Why does Apple need ID verification so many times?” he asks, peeved, as he scrolls the tablet and hands over his phone to an employee to fix the glitch.

No pain, no reality, and no agony: nothing will get to you; nothing will reach you and your citizens. Metro station (Photo: Andre Vltchek) It is you who is blind; it is not they. You actually like it, dont you? Admit you do. Let’s have it all in the open. And many citizens in the West like it as well – new titillating experiences, freeentertainment’, and a welcome break from the dire and empty, grey, loveless and meaningless routine of daily life in both North America and Europe. Hundreds of millions glued to their TV screens. Your popularity is going down, lately, isnt it? The more missiles you shoot, the more bombs you drop, and the more countries you intimidate and confront, the broader your ‘support base’ gets. You are a businessman, after all. The trade, the deal is simple, easy to grasp: you give to the majority of your people what they desire, and they give you support and admiration.

I dont know,” Brazile said, after telling the Europeans that she thought Democrats, not Russians or the ousted FBI director, bore more blame for the Trump victory. “He’s the president, he was elected.” Brazile said she prayed for Trump in church. “I want my president to succeed,” she said, before adding, “But no one is above the law.” A few minutes after she finished speaking, the New York Times posted the latest revelation of a week filled with them: that Comey had kept contemporaneous notes of his meetings with Trump, including the allegation that the president asked him to shut down the investigation of his first national security adviser, Michael Flynn. The Europeans, just like their American counterparts, were glued to their phones.

Or are we that glued to our television screens, it makes sense? Maybe I'm in denial. That's not to say Google Assistant won't be a well-used feature for Android TV owners, but rather if it will be enough to take the Android TV platform from its middling status to a smart TV platform to beat. The new homescreen for Android TV is a sizeable change over the current iteration, and if you're curious if and when your screen will get it, here's your answer: any television running Android O and higher will see the new homescreen, but Android O likely won't be available for a few more months. Google still hasn't decided if televisions running operating systems below Android O will receive the new homescreen, so sit tight if you aren't planning to upgrade. The changes Google has made to the Android TV homescreen aren't earth-shattering, but they are different.
