Kobe Bryant is a legend on the basketball court, but he's much, much more than that. The former shooting guard for the Los Angeles Lakers appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Monday night to promote his new film, Dear Basketball and while there, he had an opportunity to flex on the haters by whipping out an unexpected talent: slam poetry. A turtleneck-wearing Bryant laments about Steve Urkle, everyone's favorite character on the '90s sitcom Family Matters. He performs with unexpected grace and flow that would make the television nerd proud. Don't worry, he slides in the iconic catchphrase in there, too. Read more...

Fears Not Listenintome would suffer a drop off in form after his dismal display in Dubai were slightly allayed with a strong trial at Sha Tin now trainer John Moore just wants to see it on raceday. Even when a Hong Kong horse performs well on Dubai World Cup night there is a query they can bounce back to their best upon returning, but when a horse is comprehensively beaten, as Not Listenintome was on the sand in the Group One Golden Shaheen, the doubts are doubled.

Show Your Character As you set out to determine the length of your text, regardless of the platform, remember to do so with the user in mind. Many of these channel-mandated character limits are established for that reason -- to keep audiences from getting bored or overwhelmed. Like anything else in marketing, however, it's never an exact science, despite the best data. We encourage you to follow these guidelines, but don't be afraid to experiment if they don't always work. Test different amounts of text within your various channels, and keep track of how each post performs. From there, you can make decisions about which types of content, as well as its accompanying titles and descriptions, are the most well-received from your audience. How do you approach text with different online channels? Let us know in the comments. This post was originally published in January 2016 and has been updated for accuracy and comprehensiveness.

The Exmouth Town Concert Band have hit out at 'grossly unfair' new rules that 'penalise charitable groups.' The band have been forced to find a new home for their free concerts after East Devon District Council hiked the price they charge them by 300 per cent. Every summer, the band performs a weekly free concert in Exmouth's Manor Gardens, delighting locals and holidaymakers alike. But this year the band have been forced to seek an alternative venue following East Devon District Council's...

A group on a Delta flight going from Tampa to Los Angeles was treated to a Kenny G performance Saturday morning. Per ABC Action News, the person sitting next to the award-winning saxophonist was an off-duty flight attendant whose daughter had died of brain cancer. She asked Kenny G to play. The head flight attendant then told passengers that Kenny G would play for them if they donated $1,000 to cancer charity Relay for Life. Passengers rose to the challenge and then some, raising about $2,000. Kenny G lived up to his promise, performing while walking up and down the aisle. Follow Breitbart.tv on Twitter @BreitbartVideo

Pink Floyd in slow motion The resulting effect is a sound closer to an accompaniment for Tibetan meditation than it is to chamber music. And it's far from other well-known tributes to water such as Maurice Ravel's "Fountains" or Luciano Berio's "Water Piano". While the water transports the sound, it also stifles it and slows it down considerably: the effect is a bit like playing Pink Floyd or Jean-Michel Jarre in slow motion. Musician and producer Robert Karlsson plays the violin – made of carbon fibre – and the crystallophone, a distant relative of the glass harmonica invented by Benjamin Franklin. Nanna Bech performs the rotacorda, an instrument inspired by a traditional Byzantine hurdy gurdy. It has six stainless steel strings which can make sound either with a sustained pulling of the string or when fingered. "It's the only one in the world so I don't even have a teacher.

All Media Temple shared hosting plans include an Installatron-powered Managed Apps feature to quickly install more than 20 popular applications: WordPress, Joomla, ownCloud, Zen Cart, Drupal, PmWiki, phpBB and more. We'd prefer something like Softaculous as it supports more applications and gives you additional help to find whatever you need, but otherwise Managed Apps performs very well. The module exposes security settings not always addressed by similar tools, in particular to limit failed logins, and it'll install WordPress and the other supported apps just as reliably as anyone else. All this was implemented very professionally, almost like a desktop application. Clicking WordPress in Managed Apps doesn't open a new tab, for instance instead a panel slides across with your settings, so you can close it if necessary and try something else.

A drama group in Manchester is setting out to revive repertory theatre, a system where a single company with the same cast performs a number of different plays. The art form has been dying out over the last 50 years. But the actors are hoping the style will appeal to a modern audience used to binging on box sets.

ManyCEOs strive to clear their inboxes daily, or at the very least weekly, a goal that forces them to stick to certain habits for staying on top of their incoming messages. Typically, thatmeans settingaside multiple windows of time during the dayusually onein the morning and onein the eveningto wade through their inbox. Brad Smith, the CEO of Intuit, the maker of TurboTax and parent company of Mint, sums up his email approach asread, act, file, or delete. By limiting himself to these four optionsand requiring that he performs one of themSmith says he manages to clear his inbox daily without the help of an assistant. It requires real commitment, he concedes, but the goal is simple: Never touch something more than once. In order to leave time for regular inbox maintenance, Smith schedules meetings that cant run longerthan 45 minutes so he can catch up on emails during the 15 minutes in between meetings.

It's a one-instruction-set machine following a transport triggered architecture , and that means it deviates sharply from the conventional architecture described above. Each instruction is a move between the different physical functions of the processor, and computation is achieved by the physical functions working on the data as it is moved into them and presenting the result on their outputs ready to be moved elsewhere. The result is a computer that is in its own way beautifully simple, though at the expense of some inflexibility and lack of some hardware functions we take for granted in more conventional processors. This machine has been built on a piece of stripboard, and has an accompanying board with display, keypad, and a modem. There is a small board based upon an ATmega8 microcontroller which performs the function of fast program loading, and can be removed once the code is loaded.

But our email arrived in around five minutes not a big deal, and it included so many helpful extra setup details that it probably still saved us time overall. Performance We're always keen to see how a web host's support system performs, and DreamHost's website got the company off to a good start. You can enter a keyword at any time in the control panel search box to pull up relevant articles, and a Help menu gives you links to all your web-based support options: knowledgebase, community forum, live chat and email. The knowledgebase tramples all over most of the competition. Our usual import WordPress search returned a large number of relevant articles, with clear opening summaries in the list of search hits. These were individually very helpful, with plenty of screen grabs and step-by-step guidance, and advice on dealing with potential problems (what to try if PHP times out during a lengthy upload, for example).

Metering is weighted to the AF point, so it can trick the metering on occasion, as here The T7i / 800D uses the same 7560-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor as the T6i / 750D, with 63-zone Evaluative, Partial, Centre-weighted and Spot metering options. The evaluative system does a good job most of the time, but its worth keeping in mind that the weighting applied to the active AF point can mean you need to use exposure compensation in high-contrast situations; we experienced a couple of occasions where the same shot threw up two different exposures simply because we shifted the AF point slightly. The white balance system performs very well, while the option of an Ambient Auto White Balance mode has its uses, delivering slightly warmer results that can be welcome, while White Priority can deliver clean, neutral results even in artificial lighting.
