Essential Angular for ASP.NET Core MVC
Essential Angular for ASP.NET Core MVC
Meine Überschrift klingt widersprüchlich. Klar wird's, wenn man berücksichtigt, dass es sich um zwei verschiedene Anwendungen und auch Architekturen handelt. Dazu kommt mit TypeScript noch eine für die meisten wohl unbekannte Sprache dazu.

Gute Kenntnis von ASP.NET Core sollte meiner Meinung nach daher gegeben sein. Dies wird auch vom Autor empfohlen, und der Titel ist dem Intermediate level zugeordnet. Ich hatte mich zuvor mit Pro ASP.NET Core MVC befasst.

Am Anfang werden die Werkzeuge und Pakete vorgestellt, nebst Schritt-für-Schritt-Anleitungen zur Installation. Hatte damit keine größeren Probleme mit Windows 10 (Dogger s.u.). Daneben werden auch Linux und Mac behandelt.

Thema "project.json to csproj": Voraussetzung von Visual Studio als Umgebung ist die 2017er Version. Da ich aktuell keinen Nerv auf eine Parallel-Installation habe, entschied ich mich dafür VS Code zu verwenden.

Thema VS Code: Kann nur dringend empfehlen, sich mit der Konfiguration und den Shortcuts zu befassen. Sonst ist der Nervenarzt nicht weit. Dies ist natürlich nicht Teil des Büchleins, aber mit ein wenig Recherche komme ich immer besser zurecht. Und irgendwie passt das Teil auch zum Buchinhalt: Die TypeScript-Dateien etc. sind für mich sowieso wie eine andere Welt. Setze nun die Konsole vielmehr ein. Debuggen ist aber mit einer Extension (C#) wie gewohnt möglich.

Vorüberlegung Dogger: Unter 8GB Speicher geht nichts, da Dogger bereits 4GB reserviert bekommt. Habe mal interessehalber VS2015 gestartet und da ist dann nicht mehr viel Platz nach oben. Bei 8GB und Dogger hat man dann auch einen weiteren Grund VS Code einzusetzen.

Installation Dogger: Vermutlich wegen HyperV wird nur der Administrator, der installiert, als User eingetragen. Ein anderer User bekommt eine Fehlermeldung präsentiert. Hatte vor etlicher Zeit mal vergeblich versucht, einen neuen Eintrag für HyperV zu erstellen, und wollte mir dies nicht erneut antun. Wenn man nicht ständig als Admin unterwegs sein will (empfehlenswert), gibt's aber einen einfachen Trick: Für die Installation von Docker den präferierten Standarduser zum Admin machen und dann wieder zurück. Dann gibt's damit keine Probleme.

Einsatz Dogger: Bei ersten Lauf wurde eine Konfiguration nicht gefunden und der Container wurde nicht gebaut. Recherche ergab, dass ich keine weitere Zeit damit verbringen wollte, da ich weniger am Einsatz interessiert bin und nur mal einen Einblick in die Materie haben wollte. Den hatte ich ja nun. Also deinstalliert und einfach einen localhost-ConnectionString aus einem anderen Projekt in die appsettings.json-Datei kopiert und angepasst.

Angular: Habe nicht schlecht gestaunt, wie ich mir zum ersten mal den erzeugten Seitencode angeschaut habe. Kein Spoiler an dieser Stelle.

Edge als Browser: Nun ja. Wenn dat Dingens nicht so tut, wie's im Büchlein steht - nicht wundern oder gar aufregen. Stichwort HMR (Hot Module Replacement) recherchieren und dann doch wundern, aber nicht aufregen.

Entity Framework: Staunte auch über das Datenmodell. Entspricht mal nicht dem, was ich so kenne. Die stufenweise Beschäftigung damit in Kap.5 ist didaktisch sehr gut - der Service wird ohne Angular aufgerufen, und die resultierenden JSON-Strings werden im Browser angezeigt und können verglichen werden.

FAZIT: Aller Anfang ist schwer. Die Struktur und Funktionsweise von ASP.NET Core sollte immer präsent sein. Und Zeit und Geduld für die Beispiele sollte ebenfalls vorhanden sein. Der Inhalt ist wirklich knackig und ohne Abschweifungen. Nach der Lektüre von Pro ASP.NET Core MVC finde ich das gut, da ich mich auf das hier Wesentliche konzentrieren kann: Angular und TypeScript. Ein großer Vorteil ist dabei, dass Parallelen zwischen den zwei Welten aus der Sicht eines C#-Programmierers aufgezeigt werden. Habe zwar erst ein Drittel durch, aber von mir jetzt schon eine Kaufempfehlung.
A Few Lessons for Investors and Managers From Warren Buffett
A Few Lessons for Investors and Managers From Warren Buffett
Some good teachings from Warren Buffet, presented in an interesting format, but, sincerely, not the book I was expecting. For someone who has read all of Buffets letters to investors, this books is just a recollection of some ideas and thoughts deemed relevant to Peter Bevelin.

If you want quick look into Buffets letters, this book is ok, but if you want something more profound, I would suggest simply reading Buffet's letters directly on his website.
Learning TypeScript
Learning TypeScript
"Learning TypeScript" contains ten chapters describing in detail the modern state of ECMAScript and two common implementations of ECMAScript (JavaScript and TypeScript). The book not only introduces the reader to TypeScript 1.5+, but also looks at where the ECMAScript specification is going with ES6 and ES7. It uses TypeScript implementation details to help demonstrate where ECMAScript is headed.

Chapters 1, 3, and 4 are heavily TypeScript-specific and are the introductory chapters on the language. For the most part the remainder of the book covers syntax, concepts, and ideas that largely apply to JavaScript as well as TypeScript. This includes chapters on testing, working with the JavaScript runtime, and improving runtime performance.

The chapter on object-oriented programming contains concepts familiar to developers used to using class-based object-oriented languages such as Java and C#, but is likely to provide some key insights for those who are primarily comfortable with JavaScript's prototype-based object-oriented approach.

The code listings in the PDF version of "Learning TypeScript" that Packt Publishing provided for me to review are black text on white background with no color syntax and no line numbers. Most graphics, illustrations, and screen snapshots in the PDF version are in color.

Because "Learning TypeScript" contains both TypeScript-specific details and JavaScript-general details (TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript), the book is largely standalone, meaning that a person with only minimal JavaScript exposure is likely able to learn TypeScript from using this book. Even a person interested only in JavaScript (and not in TypeScript) would find the several JavaScript-general topics interesting because they are on current and near-future JavaScript features.
Authoritas: One Student's Harvard Admissions and the Founding of the Facebook Era
Authoritas: One Student's Harvard Admissions and the Founding of the Facebook Era
This book is odd. It's well written and the narrative is compelling; enough for me to read it all in one go.

The stories of inadequate ego-driven teachers and students early on in the book are relayed well. The book's exposure of incompetence, back-scratching and favoritism from supposedly upstanding academic leaders is excellent. This is a good reason to read this book, and for excellently depicting an often overlooked part of academic life, this book deserves 4 stars.

The problem is, that's not why I bought the book. I was expecting a book about the "founding of the Facebook era" as the sub-title suggests. This is certainly not a focus. From 335 pages in all, the name "Mark Zuckerberg" first appears on page 287, and any facts relating to Facebook's rise are within only the last 40 pages and are mostly tainted by disdain.

Initially the author developed a system called CriticalMass that allowed students to rate their satisfaction of different academics at Harvard. Textbook Central, a textbook trading site, followed. Another system called FAStWebmail allowed Harvard students to access their official Harvard e-mail accounts over the Web. These were eventually rolled into a system called houseSYSTEM that included some other features like course preselection and calendars.

For a few chapters after explaining how these systems were developed, the focus is on how the administration and some other students considered houseSYSTEM to be insecure and flawed, due to its pseudo-requirement to have users' official Harvard passwords (in order for the webmail function to work) and a lack of proper SSL (HTTPS) security.

In dealing with these concerns the author showed a lack of technical knowledge. He protested that only an MD-5 hash of users' passwords were stored, but if this were the case, how did his system then access the users' official e-mail accounts? The author doesn't provide a proper level of detail to make a judgment as an independent reader, and the way he portrays it may just be poor.

The author also says "Brian Wong is telling people that MD-5 generates 16-byte hashes, when it doesn't! There are 32 characters in all of them! Each ASCII character is one byte!" MD-5 generates a 16 byte hash (128 bits). That a textual hexadecimal representation of that 16 byte hash takes 32 characters does not make it a "32 byte hash."

The author has a habit of "quoting" his mental monologue, nearly all of which is negative in nature, and assuming whoever he's talking to is either an idiot or out to get him. The author's paranoia (warranted or not) permeates the last half of this book enough to make for uneasy reading. He jumps to exaggerated conclusions. Shortly after the initial security concerns, the university decides that Greenspan needs to delete the password hashes he had collected so far and "forward the list of all those whose information you have collected" in order that those students could have their passwords reset. Instead of complying with this reasonable request, the author rants about how the users table has other information like phone numbers in it and asks "What, do they want those, too?" The e-mail he quotes requested a list of people who signed up for his site, not other details. This doesn't stop the author from eventually sending the whole user table anyway!

On the SSL issue, the text implies that a self-signed certificate was used, but the author appears not to understand the identification issues with this (though those who e-mail him appear to). It's a common theme that the author, IMHO, quotes well-thought-out e-mails and refutes them poorly. He argues that a wildcard certificate would be necessary - costing some $1000, though InstantSSL had them for under $500 at the time - not realizing he could use a regular SSL certificate (under $50) for the password transfer (the parts where security really counted), and a wildcard cookie for cross sub-domain authentication beyond that.

On Facebook, he seems to feel that Zuckerberg's developments, though independent, were a rip off of his own even though Zuckerberg is constantly quoted as remaining separate. houseSYSTEM did have a "face book" feature where pictures of students were located along with their names, but this had no social networking aspect. Zuckerberg's did. Nothing the author relays gives me the impression he "founded" the "Facebook" era.

On page 302, I feel that Greenspan relays a tale of attempting to blackmail Facebook. Despite considering Zuckerburg "inarticulate and naive," he suggested that he join Facebook. When told they needed an engineer with 15 years' experience, Greenspan highlighted Facebook's problems with ConnectU (who were suing Facebook for allegedly copying their idea and stealing code) and suggested that he had "grounds to sue both of you" before suggesting that if Facebook would hire him, he'd be on their side and help the lawsuit go away.

The last 20 pages are dire. The author claims that having a full Facebook profile "would have meant I endorsed intellectual property theft" without realizing that information willingly shared is not "thieved."

Lastly, the author appears to rub most people in the book up the wrong way. Other than his closest associates and his family, almost every social interaction seems to result in the author antagonizing someone or being ignored. In many cases, he relies on his father to write e-mails and letters on his behalf (mostly unsuccessfully), rather than fight his own battles. "If Mark can get $2 billion for my ideas, I should at least be able to get a couple million!" sums up what I see as a jealous individual who, as it happens, has written a gripping and interesting book.

As good as this book is, I sense Greenspan isn't the sort of person to get over a slight easily and it saddens me that he appears restricted him from achieving all that someone with his talents could be.
Infinite Powers: How Calculus Reveals the Secrets of the Universe
Infinite Powers: How Calculus Reveals the Secrets of the Universe
First off, this book is not a textbook. You won't be reading it and doing homework or taking tests or solving equations and checking the back of the book to see if you got them right - thank goodness! This is a book that makes it possible for anyone (well, maybe not ANYONE, but anyone who is interested enough to try) to understand what Calculus is and the basics of how it works and why...

But why would you want to do that? Well, as the author asserts in the beginning of the book, Calculus is the language of God. Perhaps even more interestingly, he says that Calculus is the operating system or computer language that animates EVERYTHING from moment to moment and place to place.

So consider this; if you've EVER thought that maybe we are in a simulation - a virtual reality - then Calculus is the game engine code that our universe uses to draw the world we are playing the game in right now.

If you can imagine God as a computer game coder, and he set out to create a game called "Humanity" or "Life in the Universe As We Know It" - then instead of sitting down with UnReal Engine or Unity or Java or C++, he chose Calculus. Calculus is the language he programmed the Universe with and the more we understand the code, the more we understand the Universe.

That's kind of fascinating if you think about it - AND it is coexists with the Bible just fine. The Bible doesn't tell us the details of how God created the Universe or what he used to create it - The Bible just says he did it. Calculus is the "language" or a way for us to be able to tell what it is going to do next. My son and I have intense conversations about things like this - and this book makes them far more interesting.

I took Calculus in college several decades ago. I was a C student. I also took Differential Equations, and did much better. I felt like Calculus was the tools and D.E. was using the tools to do things. This book explains the tools and it is fascinating. I recommend it for anyone who is even a little curious about how our universe works, or also anyone who appreciates the artistic beauty of the order in our universe. Calculus is fascinating and even exciting if it is explained by the right person, and with Infinite Powers: How Calculus Reveals the Secrets of the Universe, Steven Strogatz is the right person to do it. I highly recommend this book if you are even slightly interested in how the universe and the world around you works.

I hope this is a helpful review. If there is anything more you would like to know, please ask. I try to check my reviews for comments and respond to them right away. I think it is important for fellow shoppers on Amazon to look out for one another by letting each other know if a product is good, or if it is a stinker. I take this very seriously and try to be helpful. Thank you!
Loonshots: How to Nurture the Crazy Ideas That Win Wars, Cure Diseases, and Transform Industries
Loonshots: How to Nurture the Crazy Ideas That Win Wars, Cure Diseases, and Transform Industries
Every so often I come across a book that I know as I'm reading it that my perspective is changing and my horizons are broadening. "Loonshots: How to Nurture the Crazy Ideas That Win Wars, Cure Diseases, and Transform Industries" is one such book. From the outset, Safi Bahcall grabs the reader's attention and keeps it with examples from history of what he's going to explain, setting it up to be understood thoroughly. He talks about lessons learned in wartime as well as from Polaroid and space exploration, among other periods and events. There's a lot I could say about this book, but to keep it simple I'll anchor my comments to a few of the many key terms the writer discusses.

To begin, there's the important distinction to be made between a franchise and what Bahcall refers to as a 'loonshot.'

Franchise: The subsequent iterations or updated versions of an original product or service.
Examples provided include each new version of the iPhone and the 26th James Bond Movie. I also relate this to a phenomenon I noticed many years ago among fast food restaurants, where new items on the menu are often just reformulations of existing menu items. A prime example is the 'KFC Famous Bowl,' which marketing now refers to as a 'classic.' Ever since first time it went on sale, not long enough ago to count as a 'classic' by any normal measure, I've seen it as the company just phoning it in. Innovation is too risky, and they already have the ingredients, so they just toss it all in a bowl and sell it.

Loonshot: A neglected project, widely dismissed, its champion written off as unhinged.
A loonshot is risky, because it's based on an idea that established 'experts' generally consider unfeasible and unfundable. Radar is a famous example of a technology that was roundly rejected by military brass and bureaucrats until it was almost too late. Another is statins, the first of which faced a difficult road to success and acceptance.

False Fail: When a valid hypothesis yields a negative result in an experiment because of a flaw in the design of the experiment.
Sometimes the test is the problem. When Akira Endo was testing a drug to see if it would lower cholesterol, the tests failed. He was testing on rats, which were later discovered to have low levels of LDL (aka 'bad cholesterol'). When he tested on chickens, which have high levels of LDL, the results were spectacular. Eventually, statins resulted, and people were provided a pharmacological solution to high cholesterol. This almost didn't happen, because Endo's research had repeatedly faced setbacks and failures. It was only through luck and his determination to see it through that we now have this option for treatment.

Phases of organization: When an organization is considered as a complex system, we can expect that system to exhibit phases and phase transitions — for instance, between a phase that encourages a focus on loonshots and a phase that encourages a focus on careers.
This part about organizational phases was an eye-opener for me. I've heard various executives over the years complain about the lack of innovation in major corporations generally, and I've always attributed it to the size of such companies making them slow-moving. While that may still be part of it, I now see how managers at various levels act in the interest of their careers over the chance at a breakthrough success. Loonshots are often ugly babies, easily dismissed and lethal to careers if they face failure. Bahcall tells the reader about his observation that loonshots experience three deaths before possibly reaching success, which translates to three failures. Some take years, even decades to see through all the way, and many don't come back from a single death. With them can go any respect or credibility previously accorded their backer(s), making it better to be the person who poo-poos novel ideas in meetings. In career terms, it's the safer route.

To this and more Safi Bahcall offers a handful of solutions and strategies that can foster loonshots, but to get those you'll just have to read the book for yourself.

Radical Simplicity: How Simplicity Transformed a Loss-Making Mega Brand into a World-Class Performer
Radical Simplicity: How Simplicity Transformed a Loss-Making Mega Brand into a World-Class Performer
I couldn't put this book down! Part autobiography, part leadership manifesto, in this easy-to-read book Ken Allen shares his SELF Reflection philosophy of Leadership that produced one of the greatest turnarounds in corporate history. Most strategies fail because they're too complicated or because of poor implementation. He says you cannot run a large organisation such as DHL from behind a desk. You've got to get out and about and engage with your people. Ken puts employees at the centre of building a successful organisation. However, not symbolically as many Leaders do. Instead, he turns the front-line into heroes! Ken walks his talk and sets the bar very high for other leaders who aspire to do great things! A worthy read!
Jimi Hendrix - Black Legacy: (A Dream Deferred)
Jimi Hendrix - Black Legacy: (A Dream Deferred)
This book is so full of interesting stuff that it deserves conversation as you are reading it...The book is something that needed to be done because it fills the void of an African American speaking up for Jimi and his influence...Most of the Hendrix world has been covered by non-black sources that tend to tune out this very necessary angle to Jimi and all its fascinating tangents...After all, Jimi wasn't making this music for himself so how it affected people and other things like music, race relations, human experience, etc is a registration of what Jimi did and its purpose...Jimi sent a powerful wave through human kind in his 4 short years the greatness of which is recorded in Corey's interviews and people's commonly-shared and often independently repeated mutual experiences of his most important aspects...In effect this is part of what Jimi's music was as well as its purpose...As usual, difficult Jimi "homework" like this gets scant attention and a good sign that you are over the Hendrix "target" is the lack of any response...But that's all right because, as Corey points out, that was true for Jimi himself wasn't it...Let's get down to it folks...Even though Jimi was a foremost example of enlightened raceless-ness he was undeniably black and owed his musical experiences and education to black roots...It is hard for some people to admit that one of God's most incredible miraculous examples of talent and the enchanted mysteries of the universe just so happened to be a humble soft spoken black man from Seattle...It's just the way it is...
Aretha Gospel
Aretha Gospel
Aretha Franklin was only 14 years old !!! when this absolutely terrific album of gospel music was recorded live,at her father's church,the Reverend C.L.Franklin.There was never such an amazing voice in the gospel field,and the live recording gives to this gigantic music a special,dramatic,intense feeling that could never be reached at a studio session.This extraordinay voice,which surely will make you cry,was the voice of a young girl who was on her way to glory.This may be one of the most important albums ever recorded in the history of great black music,wether it is jazz,blues,or gospel;I'll allways treasure this record as one of the highest masterpiece of singing.Aretha is bewildering,and maybe NOBODY ever sang with such emotion and perfection.This music is so intensive,so emotionnal,so rich,so unique that it will make you shiver and cry.You can't imagine what's in this CD,even if you listened to a lot of gospel.That's simply terrific.
"there's a fountain filled with blood" is sung almost a cappella by Aretha,with only piano and organ background,and exhortations by the members of the church.Her absolutely perfect voice marvels here."Precious Lord" is a masterpiece,a very great moment in the history of singing;there is an unbelievable dramatic intensity here,that was rarely equalled.This music is so intense that I can't find my words to describe it."You grow closer" is another great tune,somptuously sung by Aretha.And so are the other tunes.
You,jazz,blues or gospel lover,you have to own this exceptionnal record.If you don't like the music Aretha FRanklin did later,just listen to "Never grow old" and you'll have to admitt that you're listening to some of the most essential minutes of the music you like.This is,forgive me if I'm repeating this,an extremely important record.Don't miss it.
Aretha Franklin - Gospel Greats
Aretha Franklin - Gospel Greats
I bought Aretha Franklin's gospel album years & years ago at a music store inside the mall before online shopping was available or became popular (so you can only imagine how long ago that's been🤣) . I played it so much that I wore it out! So, I ordered this same wonderful album (cd) through Amazon & it sounds as good as it did when I first heard this years ago. I would recommend this album to anyone young or old. The songs are those songs that the older generation were raised on, yet, these songs can touch the heart of anyone! Mrs. Franklin song these songs so, until you knew they were song as testimonies of what the good Lord brought her through! Amen
Louis Armstrong - The Hot Fives - Volume 1
Louis Armstrong - The Hot Fives - Volume 1
This superb set captures Armstrong at a critical point in his artistic evolution,-having served his apprenticeship in King Oliver's Creole Jazz Band in 1923,he first lit a fire at the trumpet chair in Fletcher Henderson's Orchestra the following year and then he played and recorded with small combos with the likes of Sidney Bechet and Clarence Williams and now in 1925 he leads his own combo of all-stars.There is nothing negative to be said about this CD,unless you wish to quibble over the sound,which is low-fi compared to more recent releases in box sets but I much prefer the warmer,rounder tone of this CD;in a similar vein,there is nothing negative to say about the MUSIC on this CD either - this is prime classic jazz at its very finest,from the polyphonic brilliance of "My Heart" to the darting playfulness of "Big Fat Ma And Skinny Pa" and "King Of The Zulus",here was a major musical genius just beginning to stretch his legs.An essential buy,darn the sound quality its perfectly great sounding on my player!

Conoscevo questo lavoro grazie agli ascolti in rete, una versione Dylaniana abbastanza elettrica da piacermi. Devo dire che il prodotto è in una confezione molto elegante, ottima qualità di stampa e suono molto presente. Unico difetto uno dei due dischi è ondulato. Niente che non possa suonare ma non dovrebbe succedere nei vinili di peso elevato.

I've always gotten Logitech webcams, so I was nervous trying a new brand especially without any reviews. Based on the below reasons, I'm going to rate this four stars for value and features, and will update the rating again after getting some mileage out of it.

Pros:
+ This camera does indeed have the tripod screw hole on the bottom, which I'm pleased with.
+ The camera part of the webcam can tilt down separate from the securing brackets.
+ The USB cable seems to be a good length, not super short like some webcams.
+ Win10 automatically installed the driver's, named appropriately too (not like a "generic USB webcam installed", it actually said the manufacturer name after plugging in. No bloatware either)
+ 4 lighting modes work well with a tap, still need to try it out when playing at night.
+ Does not obstruct my thin 27 inch monitor too much with the mounting notch
+ Works with OBS software perfectly, just added the video source in the program.
+ No blur on movement, feels accurate as 1080p, picks up detail well at stock 30 FPS as advertised.
+ Red dot showing its ON above camera lens.

Cons:
- No built in camera cover, but I just unplug when not in use.

Overall, very pleased with this purchase, glad I tried this brand out. You never really know with webcams so I'll be sure to update this review if anything stops working as intended or if it lasts some good milage, I'll bump up an extra star to this review.

LG K8 Phoenix 2 K371 AT&T GSM Unlocked 4G LTE 16GB Smartphone - Black
I may be over selling this , but this is definitely the best $70 investment I think I've ever made! This phone does everything any other $600 smartphone can do. It's the perfect size, not a brick, extremely light weight, and very customizable, which is why i love droids. I don't know why we get so caught up in the fads of technology when it ultimately cell phones at least, end up being used for the same basic purposes. Seriously , not getting sucked into financing a phone through my carrier anymore. The battery life is good, but could be better , other than that the phone is a beauty and love the simplistic design. The phone is locked but of you have at&t already , before using the phone make sure you replace the sim card so you don't have to go through the unlocking process.

FELL APART WITHIN 1 WEEK! Didn't even last 7 days outside. Within a few days of being outside the edges started ripping and fraying and within a week it was awful. Don't waste your time or money. I wish i took a photo of the flag before sending it back to amazon, the photo i uploaded is of another crap flag i bought on amazon, don't bother trying that one either, as you can see in my photo it did the same thing, but the Elite Fan Shop one was even worse.
Wolverine Men's W03258 Durashock Waterproof Steel-Toe Boot
Wolverine Men's W03258 Durashock Waterproof Steel-Toe Boot
We were very happy the first time we bought these boots so I decided to order the same exact pair from the same exact seller. When I got my order yesterday the shoe box was torn apart. Similar to what boxes look like after our dogs are done with them. The outside of the boot wasn't really damaged, just some scratches. But when my husband went to put them on this morning for work, he discovered the one insole is missing. On top of paying what I did for the boots I now have to go to the store and buy insoles. I would return them for a new pair but we don't have time for that. Very disappointed. Was hoping for another great pair like the first ones.
Clip: Time Lapse Drawing of Deadpool
Clip: Time Lapse Drawing of Deadpool
I don't know what made me click on this, but I watched it to the end. The entire video is focused on the artwork and the girl's hand as she draws the image. My only issue is, I had to fast forward throughout. That was the only way I was able to watch it. There was no sound, which might've helped. (A little music?) If there was, I didn't hear anything, and I had the volume up. But other than that, it was very interesting, and the finished piece was STUNNING! (I'm rating the video, not the artwork.)
Deadpool Classic, Vol. 3
Deadpool Classic, Vol. 3
Covering issues #9-17 of Joe Kelly's famous Deadpool run and a throwback to the classic Amazing Spider-Man #47 for referencing purposes, this third installment of the Classic series jumps right in on the action. Wade has a run-in with the oddball team "The Lightning Rods" but not before defeated the just-as-odd Deathtrap at his own game! Then, after a wonderfully-wrong teleporter malfunction, Deadpool and Blind Al are tossed into a 60s Spider-Man comic and, without completely $*@^ing up the timeline, Deadpool must pretend to be the nerdy Peter Parker and get back to the present with his Aunt May look-alike before anyone finds out! Then, back in present-day, he has a showdown with T-Ray that leaves him broken, physically and mentally and Typhoid Mary and the severe lack of Siryn make it all worse! Finally, Deadpool finds he's the chosen one and is taken to a secret lair within LL&L to fulfill his destiny!

These issues all make for some really good reading and Joe Kelly's writing shines here with some quirky crap that only Deadpool's pie-hole can spew. McGuinness and Denton start off the book with their art that we all know and love and Pete Woods continuing and the genius behind the Romita-clone Spider-Man issue! McDaniel also contributes in a more realistic tone that works well for the later issues. There's also the original Spider-Man issue thrown in to catch newer readers up on the issue 11 references. Issue 11 in particular was done very well as to copy the look Romita had to make it look like Deadpool really was in the 60s fighting Kraven! Overall, this was a nice collection of issues and the Spider-Man issue made it all that much better! Definitely one to get!
Sabrina the Teenage Witch
Sabrina the Teenage Witch
I LOVE the first season of Sabrina so I decided watch this and I cannot overstate my disappointment. Wrapped inside a higher production value, this is just another corny teen love drama with a pinch of magic sprinkled on top. The dialogues are horrendous at times and Melissa Joan Hart's acting is much less convincing in the film than in the tv which is surprising. Wouldn't have been able to finish this if it wasn't for Michell Beaudoin cuz Jenny is easily my favorite character in the show. Oddly Jenny (or Marnie as in the film) is the only character that is written well and consistently both in the first season and in this film. Don't think I'm ever gonna get over the fact that she got replaced in the second season. One star for Jenny and one star for the sometimes astonishingly well done cinematography.

I haven't had any issues at all with video quality watching this on my Windows PC.
The series covers mostly Canadian crimes so the stories are new to me - a big plus since I've watched every episode of Forensic Files and most of the First 48 series. The subject matter is interesting but there are lots of overdramatic, stretched-out filler moments. Overall a good watch for True Crime buffs looking for something different.

There's a Wocket in my Pocket (Bright & Early Books(R))
This is NOT the Dr. Suess book that I grew up with. Huge disappointment. I am in the process of homeschooling my 6 and 4 yr old and have been incorporating books into our lesson that helped me learn to read as a child. I saw this and was thrilled because it happened to be one of my favorites. When I opened my package this afternoon I was like, huh??...what's this??
It's an abbreviated version of the original and a lot of the cute parts that I loved so much when I was little are left out. It's the kind of book that my kids call "baby books" (the hard bound cardboard page style books) so naturally when they saw it they said, "we're not babies anymore Momma!" Lol
I guess I should have read or looked at the picture description before purchasing because it does in fact show the size but it doesn't show or describe it being an abbreviated version (if it does I can't find it anywhere). I'll just put it up and maybe give it to someone as a baby shower gift so it's not a total waste of money I suppose.

I've been wanting this one for a while, I keep walking past it in shops but couldn't justify buying it... then lockdown hit and I just thought screw it, I'm buying some Christmas happiness. It's one of my favourite Jim Shores, I collect all the Christmas pieces but this was my first Grinch one. It's very well made, I look forward to the usual yearly stress of wondering where I'm going to put them all. This one might take pride of place on top of the fish tank... hmmm, a nice conundrum during a weird year

elope Dr. Seuss Cat in The Hat Insta-Tux Costume Kit
I loved that I didn't have to get a whole body costume for this that was hot and complex. I went to an outdoor Trunk or Treat that was blazing hot, so I just wore a short sleeve black tee shirt underneath and was very comfortable! Then actual Halloween was pretty cold, so I wore a long sleeve black sweater underneath. Loved the versatility! The bow/fur piece has loops that you can use to attach to the buttons of a button-up shirt, but since I didn't want to wear that, I had to use safety pins. I wish there was a better option, like maybe a ribbon to go around the neck?
The House of Thunder
The House of Thunder
This effort on Koontz's part is just not up to his usual level of entertainment. One of the reasons that he's so good is that you attach to the main characters and progress through the book like a tail hooked on a cat. You feel what the character feels and empathize as if you are the object of the story. This, however, enticed me only as an observer into the life of a character I really didn't care that much about. The book had the possibility of being one of Koontz's better novels but these prospects were never realized. We have a lady hospitalized after a car accident, a fraternity hazing, a sinister corporation, a hospital with secret doors, people who aren't who they say they are - wow - what a set up! Unfortunately, it just didn't come together. Love Dean - I'll patently wait for his next installment of the Frankenstein series. bg

Paulo Coelho: A Warrior's Life: The Authorized Biography
Paulo Coelho: A Warrior's Life: The Authorized Biography
If you're a fan of Coelho's works, skip this autobiography. The author seems to hold his subject in great contempt, repeatedly calling him ugly (which is disproven by the included photos) and listing in boring detail things like every single poor grade received in school, while mentioning significant life events only in passing. So poorly written, I had to speed-read over many tedious passages and read between the lines of the poorly-explained life transitions to get to the meat of what actually occurred in Mr. Coelho's formative years to lead him to become the person he is today. I can't imagine why this book is the authorized version.
L'Alchimiste (French Edition)
L'Alchimiste (French Edition)
Cela faisait un moment que j'avais envie de découvrir ce livre et je dois dire que je n'ai vraiment pas été déçue...bien au contraire ! L'histoire est celle de Santiago, un jeune berger espagnol qui par deux fois, a fait le même rêve, celui de se rendre au pied des pyramides d'Egypte pour y trouver un certain trésor. Après avoir consulté une gitane qui interprète les rêves, il décide de réaliser son coeur et pour cela, sur les conseils d'un vieillard qui se dit être roi, il n'hésite pas à vendre tous ses biens et à s'engager dans sa quête.
Au cours de celle-ci, il lui arrivera de drôles d'aventures, pas toujours heureuses mais toutes cependant instructives. Car, c'est bien connu, "ce qui ne nous tue pas nous rend plus fort". Et c'est certainement ce qu'il faut retenir avant tout de cet ouvrage. Il ne faut pas hésiter à aller au bout de ses rêves, même si l'on se trompe car ainsi, nous n'aurons pas de regrets et surtout, nous en apprendrons plus sur nous-mêmes. C'est ce que l'auteur appelle accomplir sa "légende personnelle". Quant au personnage de l'alchimiste, il s'agit d'un homme,qui est réellement alchimiste, mais qui surtout lui apprendra à savoir écouter son coeur, à communiquer avec les éléments et à être sensible à tout ce qui l'entoure.
Un livre qui nous en apprend beaucoup sur nous, plus que ce qu'il nous en apprend sur la réelle destinée de Santiago -si je puis dire- et qui nous apprend à être sensible aux signes que l'on voit autour de nous ! Balivernes ! , me direz-vous mais pourtant...
Un livre très bien écrit, aux chapitres courts et qui m'a énormément plu ! A découvrir !

The Angel of Terror
The Angel of Terror
This is a review of the free Kindle version.

The Angel of Terror is story from 1922 which has a very enjoyable main female criminal. Not too many stories of the time have such an interesting female criminal, and religious, which is an interesting twist. I'd rather enjoy knowing more how she reconciled those facets of her personality. Watching her rampage is quite amusing.

The free Kindle version could use a good cleaning, as it has page numbers listed throughout.

Definitely worth reading.
Gesammelte Werke, Bd.20, Die Felsenburg
Gesammelte Werke, Bd.20, Die Felsenburg
Die Geschichte über drei Bände hinweg (Die Felsenburg/Krüger Bei/Satan und Ischariot) - das ist phasenweise ein Schmöker, hat aber auch immer wieder, vor allem im Mittelband, lange Längen. Die Trilogie teilt in ihren Protagonisten die Welt in Gut und Böse, das Recht kommt schließlich zur Geltung, bei May aber auch eine mystische Gerechtigkeit: „Das ist das Gericht Gottes, das schon hier auf Erden beginnt und sich bis jenseits des Jüngsten Tages in alle Ewigkeit erstreckt!“ (Satan und Ischariot, S 457) So der Kommentar Mays zum Selbstmord eines Bösewichts der Handlung, die Art und Weise seines Freitodes erfüllt exakt eine Prophezeiung `Old Shatterhands`, `Auge um Auge, Zahn um Zahn`..
Besonders erwähnenswert finde ich die Maysche Skzizzierung der weiblichen Hauptperson`Judith`, eine Jüdin, wie der Autor bei keinem ihrer Auftritte zu erwähnen vergisst. Ihre Eigenschaften erfüllen vollständig alle - damals wie heute - virulenten Klischees: Judith ist eine oberflächliche Frau, nur um ihr Aussehen besorgt, ohne inneren Kompass, ausschließlich dem schnöden Mammon nachjagend, ach ja, dabei auch über Leichen gehend. Widerwärtig!

Nihonjin o kangaeru : Shiba Ryotaro taidanshu
梅原猛が、最近某有名新聞紙上で、”私が関係している財団などにも関西電力から寄付を受けたり、東電社長とも付き合いがあり、原発容認してきたことを悔やんでいる”というような発言をしている記事を読み、怒りがこみあげて来た。
氏が何十年も前から原発反対の立場であったならば、関西電力から寄付を受けたり、電力会社の社長が知人であっても、是は是、非は非であることを、声を大にして喧伝するのが、世間に対して影響力がある立場の有名学者としての責任(noblesse oblige)ではないだろか?
そこで、あらゆる分野の碩学と対談している司馬遼太郎対談選集全10巻を調べてみたが、梅原猛との対談はしてないことが判った。
これは、司馬遼太郎が、「空海の風景」を、梅原猛から批判され犬猿の仲になっていたから対談なんかしてないんだと自分勝手に思い込んでしまった。
が、その後友人から文春文庫で1978年に刊行されている、「日本人を考える」というタイトルの対談集で二人が1970年に対談していることを知らされた。
「日本人を考える」を、私も三十年ほど前に読んだ記憶が甦ったのだが、内容をほとんど忘れていたので早速再読してみた。(再読してみたら、両氏の対談は、「空海の風景」発刊前だったことが判明した)
本書での両氏の対談タイトルは、”西洋が東洋に学ぶ時代”であったが、対談の内容は仏教思想などでページのほとんどが割かれていた。
対談中に、両氏が創価学会(梅原猛が公明党の政治関与が政治に良い結果を与えるのではとの発言)などへ言及したところで、二人の宗教観の違いが読み取ることが出来た。
西欧などの一神教より日本のような多神教のほうが、なんとなく柔軟性があり人間にとって息苦しくないのではないか、との両氏が同じ考えであったことには納得したのだが、生涯一書生を貫いた小説家としての司馬遼太郎と、高名な学者の梅原猛との生き方が微妙に違っているのが、この対談から透けて見えてくる。
中曽根康弘が創設を主導した「国際日本文化研究センター」の初代所長に就任することになるとき、梅原猛が司馬遼太郎の参加を何度も促したが、司馬遼太郎が参加を固辞したことの意味を知ることができる。
本書巻末の今西錦司氏との対談(1971年4月)”都市集中を憂う”の章で、将来天変地異が起きることを危惧する発言をしていたが、私達は、今その天変地異と、人災としか思えない原発事故を目の前にしている。
Rescate En El Tiempo/ Timeline (Spanish Edition)
Rescate En El Tiempo/ Timeline (Spanish Edition)
This is the Spanish text edition of an absolute page turner of a book. It opens with one of the most absorbing first chapters I have ever read. An elderly man is found wandering in the desert, speaking in rhyme. There is something not quite right about him. The hospital to which he is taken discovers that the anomalies do not end with just his speech. Something is very wrong with him.

Highly inventive and compelling, the reader is reeled in hook, line, and sinker, right from the get go. A wholly plot driven book, make no mistake about it, the story revolves around a highly secretive, technological corporation, ITC, headed up by a megalomaniacal, young genius, who is tooling around with quantum physics in a way that has never before been done. Our genius is spearheading a project that is truly cutting edge. Of course, he is not doing this for the betterment of mankind. He is doing it simply because it will ultimately result in mega bucks for him, if all goes according to plan. Alas, the best-laid plans often go awry.

Cut to a group of dedicated historians who are involved in an archaeological dig, located along the Dordogne River in France. Their project, the ultimate restoration of a fourteenth century, feudal town, is very generously funded by ITC. Now why would a technological giant such as ITC be funding such a project?

This is the basic premise of the book. The use of quantum physics is applied in such a way as to access the past. Here, a group of historians find themselves with the chance of a lifetime. They can actually enter fourteenth century, feudal France and experience it themselves. There is quite an adventure in store for them.

Their reason for doing so, however, is not research. They are actually on a mission to rescue their chief historian who had ventured into fourteenth century, feudal France, using ITC's technological application of quantum physics. Due to an unfortunate set of circumstances, however, he found himself mired in the fourteenth century and unable to return to the present, as originally planned.

What happens to these intrepid historians will captivate the reader. Well written and thoroughly researched, those who, like me, love science fiction, as well as historical fiction, will, most likely, enjoy this book. As a devotee of medieval history, I was entranced by the historical detail contained within the novel. I also found the book somewhat reminiscent of the sci-fi television series called "Sliders", in which the concept of quantum physics is utilized in order to slide into parallel universes.

All in all, this well-written novel makes for riveting, escapist entertainment. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found that I simply could not put it down!

For my purposes, this book was worth the price. I read it to my kids (9 & 12). My kids would not have read it on their own--the reading level and content was age-appropriate but it was perhaps "TMI" but I am glad we read it. It was a good enhancement to their study of World War I, provided some insight into the Middle East situation today, and prepared them for to view the 1962 film starring Peter O'Toole. The book is out of print and hard to find (I tried to get it through interlibrary loan). I was happy to find a used copy on amazon.

Clifford books in our house are an absolute naptime and bedtime staple. They consistently have good themes and great teachable lessons. The great thing about Clifford books is the length; it is easy to include these books as part of a routine because they only take about 3-5 minutes to complete so you can read multiple books. The price is right also. Two thumbs up for Clifford the Big Red Dog!!
JOJOVELLER (愛蔵版コミックス)
JOJOVELLER (愛蔵版コミックス)
Great set. Since it might not be clear just by the description, this comes with the actual Jojoveller art book, a Jojo's history book, and a book with details on every stand. It also comes with a neat cardboard box like you see on the product thumbnail. The majority of the contents of both the art book and the stand/history books are in japanese.

Some notes on each part of the set before you buy:
-The Jojoveller art book is the reason to buy the set, and has tons of great artwork mostly ranging from part 6-8. It also includes artwork from the Fly High with Gucci and Rohan x Louvre exhibits, as well as some special art for every Jojo's part. The book itself is pretty large and high quality. The only problem to look out for is that there is a major spoiler for part 7 (in english), so if you're buying this as a gift for someone it might be a good idea to warn them before they read it or make sure they've finished the series.
-The stand book is has a lot less English in it and is mostly just information in Japanese on every stand in the series up to a couple stands after the start of part 8. I still enjoyed rifling through it to see the well printed designs of the stands and stand users on every page. The book is in color (most of the stands are shown in black and white) and has a really nice print quality.
-If you don't speak japanese, you probably won't be able to enjoy the history book all that much, but it's more of a bonus in the set than anything. As far as I can tell it contains information on the making of Jojo's, and includes some pictures etc.

There's also a limited edition version of Jojoveller available on amazon, which comes with a deluxe box and a bluray documentary on the Jojo 25th anniversary. Honestly, if you don't speak japanese I would just opt for the standard edition. The bluray disc is nice and all, but I doubt you'd enjoy it without being able to speak the language, and all the visuals you see regarding the exhibit etc are things you'd be able to find in the artbook anyways. You would essentially be paying a hundred dollars more to get a better box.

All in all, a great collection and well worth the price.

Where There's a Will (A Nero Wolfe Mystery Book 8)
Where There's a Will (A Nero Wolfe Mystery Book 8)
Nero Wolfe is the world's greatest detective and its most eccentric. In "Where There's a Will", he is hired by the three Hawthorne sisters, each one an unusual character: June, a controversial author who is married to the current US Secretary of State; May, a towering intellectual and now college president; and April, a beautiful and talented actress. Their brother has died and left the bulk of his sizable estate not to his wife, but to his mistress. The girls, and the male characters surrounding them, want to avoid the scandal of a will dispute between the wife and the mistress (also unique characters). They hire Wolfe to negotiate a settlement. Soon, Wolfe's assignment expands to include solving two murders.

Wolfe puts all his associates (Archie, Saul, Fred, etc.) to work. Then, miracle of miracles, Wolfe, who never leaves home, travels to the home of one of the Hawthorne's, to eat (gasp!) salad for lunch and to try to interview the suspects. He departs precipitously when a dead body is discovered and refuses to answer the summons of the NYC district attorney, police commissioner, and the detective in charge of the case. (After all, he might miss one of Fritz's gourmet meals, or his two sessions with his orchids each day.)

But Wolfe pulls together seemingly unconnected bits of information, then sits and thinks and thinks. And solves the case. And entertains the reader every step of the way. Thank goodness, Rex Stout and Nero Wolfe have come to Kindle.

French Toast Girls' Two-Tab Pleated Scooter Skirt
French Toast Girls' Two-Tab Pleated Scooter Skirt
I’ve been utilizing children’s place (CP) for my children’s school uniforms, until recently my youngest 2yr old started an academy and I couldn’t find not one skirt to fit. I ended up finding the CP brand online and purchased them( super cheap)! HOWEVER!!!!! You get what you pay for.. fast forward a month later and her skirts are faded, linty, shrinking tremendously, and god awful to iron without those iron prints. Because she has to wear uniform daily, I needed better quality and durability to the washes. So when these bad boys popped up across amazon, I made the switch and I’ll never go back! The style and material are durable, breathable for hot Florida weather, and more uniform style. The skirt doesn’t get wrinkled, and she comes home from being at school looking like she did when she left. No faded look after washing, no wrinkles, minimal ironing needed, and they even come with a cute buckle style to the side. These fit right at knee level, and since it’s a skort, they have nice discreet shorts underneath. My daughter is tall, wears a 3T now and I bought these in 4T. My choice to size up, since I read it comes with an adjustable band. The band allows for you to size up and your child to grow into; super important and one reason I like CP. For the price and quality, these don’t break the bank over CP, these like a few bucks more (not even a big deal lol) and are really worth the bucks! Will definitely be buying again.
Midnight Sun: A novel
Midnight Sun: A novel
1978. Finnmark, north of the Arctic Circle, where Norway shares a border with Finland and the Soviet Union. Where “[e]ven the greenery of summer held a promise of harder, colder times that would try to pull you down, and which would win in the end.”

Arriving by bus to hide out, a drug dealer and hit man has fled the wrath of the Oslo drug lord known as The Fisherman. He calls himself Ulf, though that’s not his name. Ulf has arrived in an out-of-the-way village populated by indigenous local people known as the Sami. There he stumbles upon a young woman who invites him to hole up in her husband’s hunting cabin and loans him a rifle and ammunition. Her precocious ten-year-old son shows him the way. We suspect that the hit man and the young Sami woman are attracted to each other, but there’s no hint of that in her manner.

Midnight Sun is at once a murder mystery of sorts, a meditation on faith, and a travelogue. In flashbacks interspersed with passages describing Ulf’s stay in the village, we learn the backstory. His life selling hash, his work as a hit man, his relationship with The Fisherman. Gradually, we come to understand exactly why Ulf has fled Oslo, and why he is in danger from men who will surely be sent to murder him on The Fisherman’s behalf.

Ulf’s encounter with the unique fundamentalist sect that dominates the Sami community takes center stage in the story. His benefactor is the daughter of the local preacher, a fearsome man who instills the fear of fire and brimstone in everyone around him. Ulf’s own atheism is put to the test.

About the author

Jo Nesbo‘s ten novels about the troubled Oslo policeman Harry Hole have elevated him into the first rank of crime writers worldwide. He is less known outside Norway for the other twelve novels he has written, as a vocalist and songwriter for a popular local rock band, or for his former career as a soccer player for one of the country’s principal football clubs.

I heard this song originally at the bowling alley and I found that it made me feel very good and made me want to dance without even thinking about it. I thought this was the version I here at the bowling alley but it's not. This version is a little bit slower and has lunch money Lewis singing in the middle in a sort of rap style for a few seconds. Still very good but not as good as the one that I here at the bowling alley. If you want to feel good this song will help you do it. If you want to feel really good find the version that they play at the bowling alley.
Transvaal Episode
Transvaal Episode
I knew nothing beyond the basics of apartheid in South Africa until I read Harry Bloom's incredibly powerful book. Even now, I cannot claim that this book has made me an expert, far from it, in fact. But, I have a much greater appreciation of what like was like in the Transvaal (or black locations) in South Africa. Even though the title is a work of fiction, I believe that the reader will get a much greater understanding on this topic. (And like other reviewers, I admit I picked this up because it is written by Orlando Bloom's father.I will use any excuse to pick up a new and different book! )
Bloom's story is set in the fictional town of Nelstroom, S. Africa. We are introduced to two main characters, Du Toit, the location manager and Mabaso; a black man who has come from Johannesburg with the hopes of easing the hardships of life in the location. Du Toit begins his job with the best of intentions, trying to make life better while still enforcing the laws of apartheid. He will eventually, of course, give in to the higher ups. Mabaso is an educated man. He makes the people of the location aware of how they suffer. And we all know education is a powerful thing. The people who stand behind these two men will clash and begin to rebel against each other. This is a book you know will not have a happy ending from the first page.
Since I can't find the words from my own experiences to describe the total unfairness and confusion of apartheid, I would like to take a quote from the book, which stuck with me from the point I read it until I finished and long after that. "Facts are twisted, illusions fostered, truth destroyed to prove that the perverted is normal, the sordid noble, the brutal beautiful, the guilty innocent, the coward a hero, disaster a victory-and the reverse of all these things."(Pgs 277-278). Harry Bloom was imprisoned for writing this book, that alone is testament to its truth. Despite its heavy subject, it is a great, fast paced read. And a book that will stick with you for a lifetime.

Everything from the hardware to software really impressed me, the compact form factor and locking mechanism makes it easy to pack and makes it far less prone to damage from bending when inside a backpack. The controls system is smooth and robust, they really tuned this thing to perfection. The buttons feel fine and controls easy to use. The app is a bit limiting because there is a gap between phone can do and what the app allows the phone to do such as video resolution. If you just want a smoother video recording experience without all the bells and whistles, then you can just use the native camera app.

One thing I would change or add is a marker showing the range of motion for all axis, but this can easily be done with a sharpy so it's not a huge deal.

The other thing I would change is the phone grip because it cant accommodate thick phones or rather, thick phone cases. I had to buy a different slimmer case for my phone to fit on this device. Again not a big deal, but it's something that may have been overlooked.

Overall they did a phenomenal job on this 3rd revision in the and kept the price surprisingly low.

I love the idea of this product and what it is intended for, the shipment is very simple with 6 dowels, a bored out sphere and a hook, but the dowels which are supposed to fit into the matching holes in the sphere fall out. The holes are too big and too shallow for them to stay in.

Customer service was kind enough to send a replacement but that one was even worse than the first one. I suppose one could add some padding but not worth the chance that they'll fall out once they're laden with objects.

I purchased these late May 2018. I blew up a test balloon as soon as they arrived. It is now mid-December, that test balloon still has a fair amount of air in it. It is past its prime, but still looks pretty good. I don’t have the heart to pop it.
If you are looking for long lasting balloons that keep their air long after the party is over, look no further. You can fill them a few days before the event, and still have balloons that look freshly filled for your celebration.

edit: My test balloon finally lost the battle for life in March. It lasted about 10 months. Granted the last few months it wasnt perfect, but it still speaks volumes about the high quality of the balloons.

Ok well the illustrations are great, and vast rich full of information and resources and links some really good stuff and nice Eco cover and design. Lots of cute designs if you like tiny homes or even thow ideas and does offer a few container home designs

So what's wrong? The designer clearly was a designer in the 70's. Almost every design features a bathroom off of the kitchen!? Who travels through a kitchen to take a shower, then back out thru living room back to the bedroom. It's the layouts that seem like the have no rhyme or reason why they put things where they do. Bathrooms should be near or connected on suites to bedrooms not past a kitchen. None of the designs even have a tv. So these are all mainly off grid designs even though only a few show solar (most just say optional solar). Few show propane or water tanks or other needed items of a good design like storage. Two story designs with main bedrooms upstairs need the full/three quarter baths need to be with them upstairs not half baths.

The whole book needs an upgrade for the 2000's with new appliances, tv's , solar, pocket/sliding doors, window options, etc

Also some actual building details would also be nice to see not just basic 2d sketches. The plans should/could even be offered for sale for full blueprints etc

So ya want some ideas and lots of pretty decent info on all sorts of things grab this up but the interiors need help bad

PowerA Charging Stand for PlayStation 4
PowerA Charging Stand for PlayStation 4
Going from a cord used for charging to this charging station has been revolutionary!

It's not as convenient as it could be simply because you cannot charge and use the controller at the same time like you can with a charging cable. If you have 2 controllers though, that shouldn't be an issue at all! I leave one controller on the charging station at all times (there's an intermediate 'setting' on the dock which lets you set the controller within the docking cradle, but not set it far enough down to initiate charging) while I use the other controller. With the amount of life that one controller gives, I can fully charge the other controller a few times over and just switch them out when the one I'm using gets low!

It's a basic thin, plastic base which feels cheap-ish, but that's negligible to the amount of use you get out of it! It prevents you from having to plug your wireless controller in to charge. It gets rid of the unsightly/annoying cord draped over your lap. It looks sleek while also being useful!

How-to: Set your Ps4 controller into one of the cradles. Push the controller down into the cradle until you hear/feel a solid 'click'. If you do it right, the controller's light bar will start pulsing a dim yellow/orange to let you know it's charging. When charging is complete, the light bar will no longer pulse.
To release: Push down on the controller again and you will hear/feel another click and will be able to lift the controller out of the station.

Pros:
Controller light bar will pulse a gentle yellow/orange while charging to let you know it's working
Can hold a controller without having to charge it (see above notes)
Looks good next to the Ps4!
Charges your controller within an hour or two and lets you get back to gaming quick!
There's a slight divot in each cradle that has an indication as to where the 'PS' button will go to make lining up easy
Has a notch on the bottom for the cord so it sits evenly on the table

Cons:
Relatively cheap material
Doesn't have an extra 'hook' for headphone storage

It's very dull. Everything is extremely monotonous. We can't figure out why the tow truck keeps growing every time it picks up a letter and then shrinks when it starts driving off. It seems like a quality control issue. They could have put more effort into this video.

The screen protector is thin and it’s great but I guess it’s my own error. I thought it was a glass screen protector that would provide any sort of protection besides against scratches. It also makes the screen look horrible and has a weird look to it. I’ve bought one of these protectors in the past and it has not been this bad I don’t know what’s wrong this time but I already bought a new GLASS screen protector to replace this after 1 week with dealing with it.

Amazon is asking me to give stars on the Vrv app for ease of use (ok), Thickness (huh?), Sheerness (wtf?). Uh, yeah.. I dont know how to rate an app that.

Anyhoo, I got this I am an anime fan and use crunchyroll cause I am too impatient to wait a week to watch a freshly released episode and despise ads with a passion. With Vrv, you will not only get crunchyroll for your anime fix but Hi-dive and other non anime related channels.

Crunchyroll - Anime, some live jdrama, i think some manga too?

Vrv Has:
Hi-Dive: Dubbed anime titles. I used ro hate dubs but many have gotten better. Watch Log Horizon, Is it wrong to pick up girls in a dungeon and my favorite here: G.A.T.E.

Boomerang
Cartoon Hangover
Mondo
Rooster Teeth
Vrv Select

I dont really watch these but you may like em.

All this for 2 bucks more if you already have crunchyroll. Also, cons with crunchyroll or vrv booths sometimes give ya free stuff if you are a member. Got some sweet posters, pins and bags.

Both crunchy and vrv are free if you can stand the ads but remember, every bit of time you save from watching ads, lets you that much more anime 😄

These are the real drop they sell in the Netherlands. If you like the sweet, soft licorice they sell in the US (for example the twizzlers or the ones labelled Australian licorice) you might not like these ones. These have a very strong taste and they are hard. Not appropriate for small children - my son chocked on one when he was 1 yr old! So keep them away from the little ones. But I give it 5 stars because they are the drop you buy in Holland. Now we don't have to ask people to bring us some when they go there. The price is also very reasonable as you get 4 bags and they go a long way.
