The cards are spread face-down in a grid. Each student takes a turn and turns over two cards. They should then say the word out loud and make sure their partner sees and hears it. If the cards don 8767 t match, they 8767 ll turn them back over in the same positions and the partner takes their turn. If the cards do match, then the student picks them up, keeps them, gains a point and has another turn.
There are so many good podcasts out there (including Lifehacker’s The Upgrade ), but there’s only so much time in a day. The Wall Street Journal reported on “podcasts nuts” who make time for podcasts by speeding them up with apps like Overcast. Like, up to 5x speed. Sure, that saves time, but it also probably spikes your blood pressure and makes listening to podcasts super stressful. So what’s the best speed to listen to podcasts in without sacrificing your health or ruining the podcast?
♥Monday will begin with students sharing their ideas about non-traditional dating. I think it will be easier for them to start talking about something they have previously given some thought to. Once they are all warmed-up,..who 8767 ll dare stop them? I 8767 ve got these two nice handouts to ensure they keep on talking.
Don 8767 t you fear!. I 8767 ll hand them some peppermint drops to prevent hoarseness as they leave the class. They 8767 ll have well deserved them!
With the new Vega cards AMD is trying to get around the power constraints of it GPUs by offering some software solutions. The first, and most notable, is the Radeon Chill feature, and it’s actually sort of clever. It operates under the assumption that people don’t really need the fastest video card, they just need one fast enough for their monitor. Both AMD and Nvidia have a technology that allows cards to “sync” with monitors to deliver top-level graphics without straining the GPU (Nvidia calls its tech G-Sync, while AMD calls it FreeSync).
I would like to commend driver Lea Schroeder for the following reasons:
6. She frequently doesn’t stop for me when I’m waiting at the bus stop, but she always waves as she goes by.
7. If she’s running behind, she tells me, “Sit your butt down,” in a courteous way.
8. She nearly comes to a complete stop now when I disembark, so I haven’t fallen in almost a week.
9. Although she usually gives me wrong instructions on which bus to take, I enjoy riding all around Vacaville on the different routes.
5. The way she suddenly starts and stops, rides the rear bumper of the car ahead, and pulls several Gs of force when she turns corners unfailingly elevates my heart rate. This has obvious health benefits.
A waitress at our restaurant had a change of clothes stolen from the break room. Making matters worse, she d planned on wearing them to the Christmas party.
As a brand-new employee, I didn 8767 t know any of this backstory, so I was a bit surprised to find this indignant note posted on the community board: It has been two weeks since the Christmas party, and I still have not found my clothes.
Many podcast apps, including Apple’s Podcasts , have features that speed up podcast episodes. Overcast has Smart Speed, a feature that speeds up podcasts by shortening the silences. I listened to The Upgrade’s episode on awkwardness using Overcast’s Smart Speed setting and sped the audio up two notches. Overcast had turned the 58-minute podcast into a 89-minute one without changing the pitch of the voices or compromising the quality of the podcast (thanks, technology). The speed ranged from to but mostly stayed at. As I continued listening, I was able to increase the listening speed to an average of. I tried 8x, but it felt way too fast for me. I could still understand what the podcast was saying, but it required all of my attention and was tiring to keep track of.
the older clientele are up in arms over the ban they say they have nowhere else to go an 88-year-old ikea regular said we've been to mcdonald's and kfc but there are barely any of our peers there we feel like aliens there - surrounded by another frequent visitor to the restaurant said i guess few people know just how lonely old people are our kids are not around and some visit only on weekends i feel quite good when i come here i talk with friends but some elderly do meet people who become lovers some customers have little sympathy for those in search of love they have complained that there is nowhere to sit because of the matchmaking groups

This isn’t only happening on TBS, though. The Los Angeles Times reported that other cable networks, like TV Land, have done this too, especially with older shows like I Love Lucy and Friends. Because of this, more TV time has been taken up by commercials: Nielsen, a television ratings company, found that broadcast networks aired minutes of commercials per hour in 7569, compared to minutes in 7559.

My husband LOVED this (of course I did too 🙂 )!! I actually set up 5 different 8775 date tables 8776. At each 8775 table 8776 there was a different part of the meal and a different sort of seating arrangement, giving us a little variety 🙂 We start on two barstools, asking questions over drinks on the porch, spent some time eating pizza on the kitchen floor, ate popcorn in a pillow nest on the living room floor, etc., at each station there were two question cards, he picked his out and then we alternated questions back and forth.
theres this guy at school ad ive had a rush on him for ages then we went out and he dumped me on the 5 day because i didnt speak to him much then at youth group on the fith day at night we went bowling with our friends and my friend told him y i didnt talk to him(i was sick spewing blood) u didnt need 7 know that and then his friend made me sit down and then my x asked me out again cause he didnt know y i wasnt talking so now were going back out and i had to fid something to say to him for monday and so this site gave me heaps of ideas thanx xp 😀
Obviously, you shouldn’t speed up podcasts when the timing is important like meditation podcasts, music podcasts, or comedy podcasts—you can’t listen to Welcome To Nightvale at 7x speed without ruining the suspense and changing the tone of its storytelling. But for podcasts that I’m just trying to get information from, like The New York Times’ The Daily , speeding up podcasts can be more efficient.
One drive behind this is falling television ratings, which lowers the cost of individual commercial slots. To compensate for lost revenue, TV companies are airing more ads. In response to the increasing number of commercials, television shows have gotten shorter— The Big Bang Theory episodes have an average runtime of 77 minutes , compared to I Love Lucy episodes, which average 85 minutes. Older shows on television are often edited or slightly sped up to make more room for commercial breaks. Cable networks have also shortened opening credits for TV shows to increase ad time.
Most of us have gone on dates with strangers from the internet at some point. But even if you met your date IRL, it’s a good idea to give them a Google Voice number when you start chatting, Rucker says. Google Voice lets users generate phone numbers for free and use them to set up other secure chat services like WhatsApp or Signal. A user can easily turn off her Google Voice number and get a new one if her date turns out to be a creep—and she won’t have to go to the trouble of changing her real number and redistributing it to all her friends.
“$95K a Year to Attend Harvard University as Me.” Requirements include a GPA in high school or a GPA in college. Only males need apply, since, as the listing tells us, “I have a male name.” The lucky person tapped for the gig doesn’t have to do much other than “attend all classes, pass all tests, and finish all assigned work while pretending you are me.” Don’t worry about having to actually get into the Ivy League school: “I’ve already taken care of that,” he says.
Every nerd loves a good tech war: Windows vs Mac, Apple vs Android, Intel vs AMD. They give us something to armchair argue about over beers with friends—or to rant over in the comments of illustrious tech blogs. After spending the weekend playing with AMD’s new Vega 69 and Vega 56 graphics cards, I think I can safely say an old tech war is back on—even if AMD’s latest salvo feels paltry. Nvidia might be leading the discrete graphics card industry, but AMD’s two newest cards are cheap and fast enough to finally compete. And that can only mean good things for PC users.
