‘Special day’ for history-making woman umpire

first_imgWindhoek (Namibia): Australia’s Claire Polosak said it was a “special day” as she made history in becoming the first female umpire to stand in a men’s one-day international. The 31-year-old officiated in the final of the World Cricket League Division 2 between hosts Namibia and Oman at the weekend and admitted she would “sleep well” after her performance. “It was a special day for everyone and I wanted to do the best I can,” said Polosak. “There was a little bit of intensity out there, some argy-bargy between the teams but I nipped it in the bud with a quiet word. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: Rijiju”Everyone responded well, there were no issues with player behaviour.” Polosak has already stood in 15 women’s ODIs, the first one in November 2016 between Australia and South Africa. She has also umpired the semi-final of the Women’s T20 World Cup in 2018 between England and India and four matches at the 2017 Women’s World Cup. “I had a couple of big calls,” she added of Saturday’s game which was won by Namibia by 145 runs. “Big caught behinds, lbws which I was pleased with. You never walk off completely happy but I will sleep well tonight.” Polosak has already blazed a trail — she was the first woman to stand in a men’s domestic fixture in Australia in her first List A match in Australia in 2017. In December last year, she and her South Australian counterpart Eloise Sheridan became the first female umpires to officiate on-field together during a professional match in Australia when the Adelaide Strikers hosted the Melbourne Stars in the WBBL.last_img read more

CBS and Viacom announce deal to reunite

NEW YORK — CBS and Viacom said Tuesday they will reunite, bringing together their networks and the Paramount movie studio as traditional media giants challenge streaming companies like Netflix.Viacom owns Paramount Pictures and pay TV channels such as Comedy Central, MTV and BET, while CBS has a broadcast network, television stations, Showtime and a stake in The CW over-the-air network.Analysts say the reunion will help both companies navigate an ever-competitive streaming landscape. MoffettNathanson analyst Michael Nathanson said Paramount’s movie library could be added to Showtime’s premium networks and streaming service, for instance, while CBS’ streaming service could get a boost from Viacom’s Nickelodeon video.CBS was one of the first media companies to launch its own streaming service, CBS All Access. The $6-a-month service now has a new “Star Trek” series, a revival of “The Twilight Zone” and archives of old and current broadcast shows. CBS says All Access and its Showtime streaming services have 8 million subscribers combined. That’s far less than the 60 million U.S. subscribers that Netflix has, though it’s comparable with the estimated number of subscribers to HBO Now, that network’s stand-alone streaming service.Now, Disney, Comcast’s NBCUniversal and AT&T’s WarnerMedia are jumping in with their own services as well to challenge Netflix, Amazon, Google and other tech companies encroaching into entertainment. To expand its library, Disney bought Fox’s entertainment businesses for $71 billion in March, while DirecTV owner AT&T bought Time Warner last year for $81 billion.Moody’s media analyst Neil Begley said the CBS-Viacom reunion would help cut costs and provide greater scale for creating and distributing content.“There’s growing pressure on companies to bulk up content libraries and merging is the easiest and safest way to do that,” Begley said.Viacom CEO Bob Bakish will become CEO of the combined company. Acting CBS CEO Joe Ianniello will become chairman and CEO of the CBS division. The deal is an all-stock transaction. CBS shareholders will own about 61 per cent of the combined company and Viacom shareholders will own 39 per cent. The companies say the combined company will have $28 billion in revenue.The deal will be beneficial to earnings and lead to $500 million in cost savings, the companies say.The reunion is expected to be completed by the end of the year.The combined company would still be small compared with behemoths like Disney, with a vast library of movies and shows, and Netflix, the pioneer in streaming technology. CBS has a market value of $18 billion and Viacom has a market value of about $11.7 billion. Disney’s is nearly $245 billion and Netflix is at $136 billion.Begley said the combined entity might have to consider other acquisitions to keep up with competitors. However, the number of possible targets is dwindling, he said, with what’s left mostly smaller companies such as the Discovery and the AMC television networks and the MGM and Lionsgate movie studios.CBS and Viacom have had an on-again, off-again relationship.CBS split from Viacom in 2006, but both remained controlled by National Amusements. Shari Redstone, daughter of media mogul Sumner Redstone, runs the holding company.The split was a way to separate Viacom’s networks like MTV, Nickelodeon and BET, which were very successful at the time, from the slower growth of the CBS network.But over time, the two companies’ fates were reversed. CBS under longtime chief Les Moonves became more profitable and Viacom struggled, hurt by weakness in its Paramount studio and people dropping cable in favour of streaming.A recombination makes sense now because media companies are bulking up their content offerings to better compete for ad dollars. But Moonves was against the idea, as CBS was stronger and more profitable than Viacom.Moonves’ ouster last year in the face of multiple sexual misconduct allegations changed the dynamic. Under an agreement, Shari Redstone agreed not to push for a reunion for at least two years, but that left open the possibility of CBS itself pushing for it.Mae Anderson, The Associated Press read more

Iraq is at crossroads warns Annan as reports say 100 civilians are

“The Iraqi people and their leaders have arrived at an important crossroads: if they are able to build firm foundations for the common interest of all Iraqis, the promise of peace and prosperity will be within reach,” Mr. Annan says in his latest report to the Security Council, which was released today.“However, if current patterns of discord and violence prevail for much longer, there is a grave danger of a breakdown of the Iraqi State, and potentially of civil war, which would be detrimental not only to the Iraqi people, but also to countries in the region and the international community in general.”The report, covering the period from 2 June until 2 September, describes Iraq as “one of the most violent conflict areas in the world,” adding that according to the latest Government figures, the number of civilians killed has increased considerably and stands at an average of 100 people per day, while more than 14,000 were reportedly wounded per month.Faced with growing violence and insecurity, the Iraqi Government has focused its political efforts on promoting national reconciliation and dialogue, Mr. Annan says, and while he notes “significant achievements” in the political transition process, he points out “there can ultimately be no military solutions to the many challenges” the country faces.He acknowledges that the “burden of leadership is a heavy one,” and notes in particular the growing threat of militia activities, urging the Government to do “everything possible to progressively foster an environment conducive to the demobilization, disarming and reintegration” of these forces.Mr. Annan also highlights the role of the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI), noting that although the country’s insecurity had “severely constrained” its ability to operate effectively, the Mission was exploring how it can maximize its impact and prioritize its tasks.He also welcomed the Security Council’s decision last month to extend UNAMI’s mandate for another year, adding that the UN also wanted to engage in “strategic dialogue” on future plans for the country and that was why it would convene a high-level international meeting in New York next week with Iraqi representatives.“A vital element in the quest for addressing the security and human rights situation is the improvement of living conditions for all Iraqis,” Mr. Annan points out, highlighting that one important Government initiative to deal with this is the International Compact with Iraq.The Compact, which is co-chaired by the UN, is a new partnership with the global community that was launched in July and aims to pursue political, economic and social development over the next five years in the strife-torn country.Mr. Annan notes that “considerable preparatory work” has already been done to create an effective framework for the Compact in which the Government can develop its economic programme according to clearly defined priorities, benchmarks and commitments. And yesterday an international agreement was adopted to move the process further along.Representatives of 13 Governments, the League of Arab States, the World Bank and other regional and international organizations met in the United Arab Emirates to welcome the Iraqi Government’s commitment to “making urgent progress” on national reconciliation, political inclusion and other measures. The Abu Dhabi Declaration also pledged to work closely with the authorities in further developing the Compact with the UN and the World Bank, and “recognized the need to expeditiously complete the development” through a “broad consultative process at the national, regional and international levels.” The meeting also pledged to work towards adoption of the Compact by the end of this year. read more

US consumers boost spending 03 per cent in August as their income

US consumers boost spending 0.3 per cent in August as their income grows 0.4 per cent. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted Sep 27, 2013 8:42 am MDT WASHINGTON – U.S. consumers increased their spending slightly last month as their income grew at the fastest pace in six months. The figures point to only modest economic growth in the July-September quarter.Consumers’ spending on goods and services rose 0.3 per cent in August, the Commerce Department said Friday. That’s up from a 0.2 per cent gain in July, which was slightly more than the 0.1 per cent reported last month.Income rose 0.4 per cent in August, the best gain since February and up from a 0.2 per cent July increase. Private wages and salaries rose 0.5 per cent, while the government wages and salaries rose 0.2 per cent.The government figures would have been higher if not for forced federal furloughs that reduced wages and salaries by $7.3 billion.Consumer spending drives 70 per cent of economic activity. Many analysts say the increases are not enough to accelerate economic growth in the third quarter from the 2.5 per cent annual rate in the April-June quarter.“With more money coming in, consumers spent a little, just a little, more freely,” said Jennifer Lee, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets.And Americans grew more pessimistic this month about the economy, their own finances, and government budget policies, according to a survey of consumer confidence released Friday.The University of Michigan says its final reading of consumer sentiment dropped to 77.5 in September from 82.1 in August. It was the second straight decline after confidence reached a six-year high of 85.1 in July.Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist at Capital Economics, predicts the economy is growing at an annual rate of 2 per cent to 2.5 per cent in the July-September quarter. Still, the pickup in August spending could signal stronger growth in the final three months of the year.But other economists are less hopeful. Peter Newland, an economist at Barclays, said that the modest increase did not change Barclay’s forecast for growth at a 1.7 per cent rate.Americans saved some of the extra money they earned last month. The personal savings rate edged up to 4.6 per cent of after-tax income, a slight improvement from 4.5 per cent in July.Consumers are benefiting from mild inflation. An inflation gauge tied to consumer spending increased 1.2 per cent over the past 12 months, well below the Federal Reserve’s 2 per cent target. Some Fed officials have argued that the central bank should not start reducing its support for the economy until inflation has risen closer to the Fed’s target.A recent spike in interest rates and mixed signals from the job market were key reasons the Fed decided held off last week on reducing its $85-billion-a-month in bond purchases. The Fed also scaled back its economic growth estimate for this year and next.There are some signs that consumers may be better positioned to step up spending soon.The number of people seeking unemployment benefits has sunk to its lowest point in six years because few companies are laying anyone off anymore. That has led some economists to predict that employers added 200,000 jobs or more jobs in September — the most since February.And gas prices are falling again. The average national price for a gallon of regular gas on Thursday was $3.43. That’s 11 cents cheaper than a month ago and the lowest since January. read more

Happy anniversary Harry and Meghan A lot can happen in a year…

Having broken the story of their relationship in October 2016, this was the happy ending to the royal fairytale I, along with royal watchers everywhere, had all been waiting for – the crowning glory of an extraordinary union between an American actress and a British prince. It also marked the start of a new dynamic for the monarchy, with Meghan the first mixed-race person to marry into the Firm – a paradigm shift symbolised by mother-of-the-bride… From the lovestruck look Harry gave Meghan as she was tenderly walked down the aisle by Prince Charles, to Bishop Michael Curry’s exuberant speech about ‘the power of love’, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding remains one of the most memorable of modern times. read more

Zarko Markovic doesnt show up for national team Kastratovic I will resign

The Zarko Markovic and Montenegro national team saga have its epilogue. Frisch auf Goppingen’s right back, Zarko Markovic, as it was expected, did not show up at the scheduled meet-up of the national team and trainings. Official explanation from Zarko Markovic did not arrive, and he did not play at the World Championship in Spain either.Zoran Kastratovic, Montenegro’s coach said that he was angry with Markovic’s behaviour: “It’s normal that every coach will want to rely on such a player. He plays greatly in both – attack and defence. It’s up to him if he wants to play for the national team, and when he does that, I can responsibly say that after his first game played I will resign from the post coach of the national team”. crna goraGoppingenkastratovicmarkovicmONTENEGRO ← Previous Story Lazarov for Marca: “Spain are favorites, but we will try to win a point” Next Story → Marko Vujin about EHF CL finish: Kielce and Metalurg don’t deserve to play at F4 read more

Climat Bonn accueillera les prochaines négociations début avril

L’échec du sommet de Copenhague a conduit à une remise en cause des compétences de l’ONU concernant l’organisation de la lutte contre le réchauffement climatique.Jusqu’alors, une seule conférence avait été fixée, du 31 mai au 11 juin à Bonn, avant le sommet de Cancun. En 2009, cinq sessions avaient eu lieu pour préparer le conférence de Copenhague. Yvo de Boer, le secrétaire exécutif de la convention-cadre de l’ONU sur les changements climatiques, a souligné que l’ajout de la réunion d’avril est nécessaire pour tenter de parvenir à un accord international à la fin de l’année.

Deux nouveaux smartphones Samsung Galaxy avec dualSIM pour 2012

first_imgDeux nouveaux smartphones Samsung Galaxy avec dual-SIM pour 2012Le constructeur sud coréen vient de dévoiler, histoire de donner l’eau à la bouche pour l’année qui arrive, deux nouveaux smartphones: le Galaxy Y Duos et le Galaxy Y Pro Duos. Ils seront équipés d’Android et proposeront deux emplacements SIM.La dual-SIM, tout de même peu répandue chez nous, permet de coupler deux puces dans un seul téléphone. Lors de déplacements professionnels ou par loisir, cela évite toujours de se promener avec plusieurs téléphones. En plus de cet atout, chacun des deux Galaxy embarque un processeur à 832 MHz, 512 de RAM, 2Go de mémoire interne, les connexions Bluetooth 3.0 et Wi-Fi, un APN de 3 mégapixels ainsi qu’un GPS, l’ensemble tournant sous Android 3.2 Gingerbread. Le Galaxy Y Duos possède un écran tactile LCD de 3,14 pouces alors que le Y Pro Duos dispose d’un écran de 2,6 pouces et d’un clavier physique (côté professionnel oblige). L’aspect pro de ce modèle ressort encore plus avec Polaris, une application permettant de visionner et éditer des documents Office, Find My Mobile et Social Hub. Esthétiquement parlant, les deux Galaxy se fondent dans la gamme habituelle de Samsung, donc pas de surprise de ce côté là.Ces deux nouveaux Galaxy devraient arriver l’année prochaine en Europe mais aucune date ni prix n’ont été communiqués.Le 23 décembre 2011 à 19:10 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

State ferries wont stop sailing April 16 after all

first_imgFerry props wait for use at the Alaska Marine Highway Warehouse in Ketchikan on Feb. 19, 2014. The ferries will continue sailing this spring and early summer thanks to a bill Gov. Bill Walker signed Tuesday. (Photo by Ed Schoenfeld/CoastAlaska News)The Alaska Marine Highway System will not have to shut down in April.Listen nowGov. Bill Walker signed a supplemental appropriations bill Tuesday funding the ferry system through the end of the current fiscal year in June.The gap would have left an 11-week hole in the system’s budget. April 16 was set as the shutdown date.Sitka Republican Sen. Bert Stedman represents many of the Southeast communities most dependent on the ferry system.“I think that’s great. We can get the marine highway through the first of July and then have a fairly flat schedule going forward, with a few little improvements for the next year and continue to try to move the marine highway forward instead of backwards,” Stedman said.The supplemental bill provides about $24 million for the ferry system.The shortfall was caused by an earlier spending bill meant to fund Medicaid if it ran out of money. It called for that money to come from the ferry system. Those terms were not widely known.Stedman sounded the alarm about the shortfall in September. He called it “skullduggery and downright sleazy.”“It’s not how we should do budgets or how we should deal with the public purse. So I think the negative press from those type of actions goes a long way to keep them from recurring” Stedman said.The $110 million fast-track supplemental bill also funds gaps in state Medicaid and prison programs.Ferry funding for the budget year beginning in July still needs to be approved by the full Legislature. So far, it’s passed the House but not the Senate.last_img read more

Futuristic Taiwan tower to have floating observatories

first_img(PhysOrg.com) — A futuristic tower called “Floating Observatories,” which resembles a tree trunk with eight floating elevator observatories shaped like leaves, will soon become a major landmark in Taichung, Taiwan’s third largest city. Image credit: DSBA More information: www.dsba.ro/mainEN.php?lang=EN&news=1 Image credit: DSBA The floating elevator observatories can take up to 80 people and are built from lightweight materials developed by the space industries, and covered by a new generation membrane of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). Their design was influenced by science fiction computer games. They move up and down on a vertical track positioned within a strong electromagnetic field and are “self-sustained” by helium balloons. The observatories provide the key exhibit of the museum for the visitors — the city itself — and when nested they are themselves exhibits.The design’s “green” features include a small footprint, natural ventilation through the “chimney” effect, turbines and solar cells to generate power for the building, a fiber optics dome to light basement areas and museum spaces, and rainwater collection and purification. There is also a geothermal power plant in the basement for heating in winter and for heating water. Image credit: DSBA The conceptual design of the tower was made by a team from the companies Dorin Stefan Birou Arhitectura (DSBA), Upgrade.Studio, and Mihai Cracium, and led by DSBA principal architect Stefan Dorin from Romania. The tower design won first prize in the recent Taiwan Tower Conceptual International Competition. Dorin explained the design represented a “technological tree,” with elevator observatories shaped like the island of Taiwan, which is leaf-shaped.The tower, standing over 300 meters high, will include an information center, museum, office tower, conference venue, fixed and floating observation decks, restaurants, and an urban park.

The design was chosen from 237 entrants from 25 countries and gives Dorin a prize of around $130,000 as well as the chance to have the tower built to his design. Building of the tower on the one hectare site within sight of the Taiwan Strait is expected to begin in 2012 and take two years to complete.The competition was held to celebrate the centenary of the founding of Taiwan and to commemorate the merger of Taichung County and Taichung City.

Williams, Ph.D., associate professor of radiology, biomedical engineering and physics at the University of Virginia, appears in the April 2010 issue of Radiology.The DMT breast scanner works by coupling 3D digital X-ray breast tomosynthesis with 3D molecular breast imaging tomosynthesis, a technique that uses intravenously injected compounds (tracers) that are absorbed to a much greater degree by malignant lesions than benign ones. A special camera positioned in close proximity to the breast then performs functional imaging of the entire breast, while the digital X-ray tomosynthesis obtains co-registered structural images. The device runs the scans sequentially, obtaining both types of images with the breast in the same, immobilized position.According to the researchers, the scanner particularly useful for women with radiographically dense breasts. Williams points out, this pilot clinical study of the 17 women tested could have far greater implications.For more information: www.healthsystem.virginia.edu FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Cardiac Imaging | July 30, 2019 VIDEO: The History of CT Calcium Scoring Arthur Agatston, M.D., clinical pro read more Video Player is loading.Cynthia McCollough explains new advances in CT technologyPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 13:56Loaded: 1.17%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -13:56 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

All those guys can hit the home run on you. (Beanie) Wells, (Ryan) Williams, obviously (LaRod Stephens-) Howling, (William) Powell, so it’s a dangerous group, an explosive group and they can hurt you in a lot of different ways, not just handoffs, but the passing game, inside and outside. They all have speed to get to the corner, but they can definitely take it up inside and blast through there, too. I’ve really been impressed with Wells. I think he’s a big-time back. Once he gets his shoulders going downhill into the line of scrimmage, it’s going to be a pretty big collision.on Cardinals pass rushA lot of teams have usually one guy that you really have to focus on or maybe two. I think with the Cardinals, it’s really they have a well-balanced rush. Certainly they are impressive inside with Calais Campbell and Darnell Dockett. Those guys, really, they’re outstanding. Dockett is really hard to block. He’s quick, really active and Campbell is long and quick. He’s got power and quickness to go with it. (David) Carter’s got good quickness in there too. Dan Williams is a good inside rusher, powerful guy. (Vonnie) Holliday gives them some stats in there. They’ve got good edge rushers with (Sam) Acho and (O’Brien) Schofield. Quentin Groves gives them another quality guy, so they are really well-balanced inside and outside with good depth and a combination of power and speed and quickness to go with their blitzes. They present a lot of problems in terms of pass protection or just throwing the ball in general. September 12, 2012: Behind Enemy LinesAs New England head coach, Bill Belichick has never lost a game to the Cardinals in three career meetings.Under Belichick, the Patriots are 38-10 (.792) against the NFC in the regular season. And his next victory will be his 194th career win, moving him out of a tie with Chuck Knox into sole possession of 8th place all-time.Belichick spoke to those of us in the local media on a conference call earlier Wednesday: D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke on Adrian WilsonHe’s a guy that can ruin the game for you offensively. He’s a very instinctive player in the passing game. He knows where the ball is, is obviously a big hitter and he can control the middle of the field. He’s very active in the running game, makes a lot of plays at or behind the line of scrimmage. You see different players in the league and the number of tackles they make and so forth, but this guy makes tackles and a lot of them are for no yardage. That’s the impressive thing to me about him, is the number of negative plays or plays that he makes for little or no gain that then put the offense in a long-yardage situation. He just does a lot for their defense. I’ve been always impressed with him. He’s playing well. He’s definitely a guy that you absolutely have to know where he is every time the ball is snapped, run or pass. The quarterback can’t let the ball go without knowing where he is.

workforce "Yaorenmao" escapes online where she prances and preens in cosplay outfits for her 13 million fans Her alternative world is bilibilicom a Shanghai-based video-sharing platform that has attracted more than 150 million Chinese users with its eclectic mix of user-generated videos and animation largely inspired by the Japanese world of ACG (anime comics and games) Spurred in part by a shortage of engaging youth-oriented content in China’s heavily censored media and entertainment outlets Chinese ACG is developing into a multi-billion-dollar industry analysts say drawing investment from deep-pocketed tech titans like Tencent and Alibaba And with amateur video uploads booming in smartphone-addicted China platforms like bilibili are fuelling and capitalising on the ease with which the average Chinese armed with a camera can attain viral celebrity The twenty-something Yaorenmao a pseudonym meaning "cat that bites people" began a few years ago to upload brief DIY videos from her home in the southwestern city of Chengdu in 2011 She dances to saccharine-sweet tunes in the clips acting out an unfulfilled childhood dream of becoming a dancer You can never leave "I worked like a normal person after graduation (from university) but normal life and work are just too boring" she said withholding her real name and occupation to keep her two lives separate Fans accumulated often sending gifts or money which she ploughs back into increasingly elaborate costumes and settings including a 10000 yuan ($1500) trip to Japan to shoot videos during the picturesque cherry blossom season Her fans approach her amateurish work "with a generous heart and encourage me because they want to see me getting better and better It’s as if they are getting better and better themselves" she told AFP Based heavily on hugely popular Japanese ACG sites like Niconico bilibili hooks many with its signature live-comment feature in which waves of user remarks flow across the screen in real time often obscuring the videos being commented on Bilibili chairman Chen Rui told AFP Chinese millennials born in the internet age are increasingly inhabiting the virtual world "Everyone is afraid of loneliness and everyone wishes for a better world where you can speak your mind and don’t have to see people you don’t like" Chen said "Once you’ve seen the world bilibili created you can never leave" Analysts estimate China’s ACG world has more than doubled in the past four years to around 300 million fans whose spending within the subculture averages more than 1700 yuan ($255) per year and some predict the industry could one day rival its Japanese forebears Going mainstream Bilibili offers a bewildering array of material — 70 percent of it user-generated — including role-playing quirky personal videos like Yaorenmao’s amateur commentary on lifestyle tech beauty fashion and entertainment games and of course Japanese anime series Even the Communist Youth League has opened a bilibili feed containing videos extolling the ruling party Huang Yanhua an analyst with iResearch Consulting said China’s online ACG world is in a messy "beginning stage" but she expects it to serve as an incubator for successful original Chinese content "Each generation has their own way of entertaining People born after the 1990s have started working and they are now the main consumption force in China and as their hobbies become the mainstream it will change the industry landscape" Tencent launched its own bilibili-like site Tencent Comics in 2012 and is now partnering directly with bilibili to produce animated videos E-commerce giant Alibaba through its streaming site Youku Tudou led a $50 million investment in bilibili rival Acfun in 2015 Market analysis firm CIConsulting said recently China’s ACG market had become a fast-growing multi-billion-dollar industry Bilibili launched an annual Shanghai convention in 2013 that drew just 800 people This year’s event in July attracted more

called "Crazy Warfare-Show" said the virtual realm was rapidly replacing the real world for countless Chinese millennials grappling with the country’s rapid economic technological and social changes "They now live in tall buildings in Shanghai and they may not even know the kid next door" Zeng said Bilibili’s often-frivolous content is a salve he said "People are also under lots of pressure in
