AngularJS y Apache Cordova: Del ni idea al ¡soy un maestro! (Spanish Edition)
Creo que el libro está bien enfocado y que toca palos realmente interesantes, pasando por el detalle de las instalaciones de node, bower, gulp... la creación de tareas con gulp, la realización de un mock para emular la llamada a un servicio...
Todo esto está bien para tener un conocimiento básico de la integración de todas estas herramientas y de cómo realizar una aplicación en angular 1.X pero no esperéis convertiros en maestros con el libro.
Al margen de algunas erratas (no se especifica en algunos puntos la declaración de variables necesarias y la instalación de algunos paquetes) que se pueden resolver por uno mismo, el libro está bien.
Facebook: The Inside Story
Facebook: The Inside Story
For someone who claims to know as much as he does about Facebook, Levy only manages to capture half of the true narrative at best, in what could be described as nearly 600 pages of anger towards a company and a person.

Levy cannot write for more than a few pages without hurling insults at Facebook, Zuck, or any of its many employees. Seriously - open up and read any few pages at random to see for yourself. There's nothing objective about this writing; a smear campaign, at best.

Don't just take my word for it - read Aaron Greenspan's one-star review of this book, where he calls out Levy for his factuallly inaccurate retelling of Aaron's story from their interview together in 2018 (Greenspan is a former college friend of Zuck's, who makes a number of appearances in the earlier chapters of the book.) Why would Levy intentionally misrepresent the facts if he was not biased in his feelings and sentiments towards Zuck, Facebook, or any of its employees?

This is so dishonest I don't know how Levy views himelf as a person with integrity. I highly reccomend never buying this fiction.

L'editore, non migliora in nulla – anzi la peggiora – la precedente edizione stampata dalla stessa casa editrice e curata da Ewald Zimmermann. Uno spreco di denaro che lascia senza parole.

Amazon Brand - Solimo Silver Energy Drink, Sugar Free, 16 Fluid Ounce (Pack of 24)
I tried the Silver flavor as I'm a fan of the White and Blue Monster Ultra energy drinks. First, to start with the energy boost, it is extremely comparable to Monster Ultra. If you're looking for a different flavor of the same type of energy drink, this is a perfect replacement.

For the flavor, it has a comparable taste to the Monster Ultra energy drinks, except a little less sweet. The silver flavor I can best describe as a a melted orange popsicle sweetened with artificial sweeteners. It has a less natural taste than the Monster Ultra drinks and has a lingering aftertaste that is... not great. The artificial sweeteners really pull through at the end which is why I couldn't rate it five stars. It is certainly sweet, but not as sickly sweet as the Ulta flavors. If you like the Monster Ultra flavors, you'll definitely like these, especially if you think that the Ultra flavors are a little on the sweet side.

Overall these are a great, cheaper alternative to the Monster Ultra drinks. If you're looking for another low carb and low cal energy drink and don't mind a little artificial aftertaste then these are a perfect match for you.

Dead Like Me
Dead Like Me
Certainly the conversation-starter of your DVD collection.

Dead Like Me tells the story of an eighteen year old girl who is killed by a toilet seat that falls from space. Before anyone can even
carry her body away, she's given a new one and hired as a grim reaper. It's now her job to collect the souls of people about to die.
Turns out the man who reaped her soul had filled his quota, and now that he's moved on, Georgia has to take his place.

There are five reapers in Georgia's division, and they all deal with accidental deaths. Their boss meets with them in the same coffee
shop every morning and hands out post-it notes with names, addresses and times so they know where to go. When the reapers aren't reaping,
or ordering coffee and trading insults, they still have to pay the bills somehow. One's actually a meter maid. Georgia works in an office.

This show shines in various ways. The banter between the reapers in their favourite coffee shop is always spectacular. The imaginative
deaths of the "victims" are always surprising, and Georgia's desperation to stay in contact with her family (which is strictly against the
rules) is believable. The concept of death as entertainment may sound a little distasteful but it's dealt with in a serious and touching
way, without becoming sentimental or weepy. It's sharp and honest, but always a laugh. You will fall in love with the characters over the
29 episodes that span Seasons 1 and 2.

The 2009 movie that comes with this collection is a bit of a dud. It tries to pick up where the series left off in 2004, but one regular
character is written out and one is played by a different actress who (sorry!) is pretty bad. There's plenty of laughs in the film and ties
up a few loose ends but some are left loose for good, because the show was cancelled in 2004, despite its high ratings.

The collection is decent. It would be five stars alone for the quality of the episodes, but the movie is pretty bad, the story is not
*entirely* resolved, and the cardboard box that holds the set is a bit flimsy. Mine arrived in the post already a bit bent. This is a
brilliant buy, and you'll definitely enjoy it. Sadly you'll not see anything like it again.

NOTE: THIS COLLECTION IS REGION 1! You will need a region free DVD player to play the collection. You can buy Seasons 1 and 2 separately,
and in Region 2 (which is the UK region.)

I bought this cd to get some songs that I didn't have from Usher's collection. These are mostly club/house/dance mixes of his hits, which is not what I really expected. I thought these were just remixes. If you like club/house/dance mixes, you will enjoy this.
RIN-NE, Vol. 14
RIN-NE, Vol. 14
I have to say, initially reading the chapters online in Japanese wasn't very fun, I thought the chapters leading up to Renge's introduction were "meh" in terms of quality. I assumed Renge's arc would be the only good thing about the book. However, after buying this book in English I realize that the hilarity of the preceding chapters was merely lost in translation--> my inability to read in Japanese, hence just skimming the chapters and looking up the summary online in English.

My favorite volume! All of the chapters are very strong on their own, and when all compiled into the same book, it makes for a great volume.

(1)Tsubasa and Rinne Chill together after the influence of a lazy spirit, (2) the Black cats celebrate an ornery old Cat's birthday, (3) an Oni (demon) sucks the crew into Hell, (4-5) Tsubasa gets possessed by a fox demon, and (6-10) a strange new transfer student is being haunted by the spirit of--Marilyn Monroe?! But, it soon turns out that is not the case as Sakura gets kidnapped and Tsubasa gets the soul sucked out of him!

All great chapters! If you're going to buy a stand-alone book, this is the one to get of the series.

Now, I'm waiting for volume 19 (I'll be buying all the rest, of course) to have as my favorite.
WINCO Rectangular Non-Stick Cake Pan, 13-Inch by 9-Inch, Aluminized Steel
WINCO Rectangular Non-Stick Cake Pan, 13-Inch by 9-Inch, Aluminized Steel
My wife is from SE Michigan and every time we go back Detroit style pizza is on the menu. We decided to recreate it at home and this is the perfect pan. The pan is extremely sturdy and the crust never sticks. Try this pan and the recipe from Cook’s Country. It makes authentic, Buddy’s Detroit style pizza easy as pie. Pun intended.
Adult Cat in The Hat Costume Accessory Kit
Adult Cat in The Hat Costume Accessory Kit
The quality of things you buy for the purpose of costuming is often a crap shoot. That's why I spend more time reading the reviews of costume products than I do of computers costing over a thousand dollars. You always have a recourse if the computer doesn't work right. If you are stuck with a shoddy costume item costing three dollars, no body cares.

With this set, you get your money's worth. I was only interested in the hat, and I found that fit my relatively small head rather well. But, if you have a larger than 6 1/2 head, it may be a bit tight. Next to fitting is the ability of the hat to stand up straight, with only the slightest hint of a bend, here and there. This succeeds quite well, although I will not attest to whether it will hold that shape if you scrunch it down to store in a bag for any period. It needs "space" like on the top shelf of a tall closet, or perhaps on a peg on a clothes tree.
The Captain's Daughter (Illustrated)
The Captain's Daughter (Illustrated)
This book was my first introduction to Pushkin and the jury is still out on whether I will read another. It is an easily read simple Russian tale that was reasonably enjoyable but it is told without the richness that Tolstoy brings to his stories. Although the primary character, Peter Andreitch, is undoubtedly noble in his sense of duty both towards the Empress and his love, Maria Ivanovna, the characters were never really developed and lacked depth. It's possible that they may come to life more with a second reading but that would require an effort I currently have no desire to make. The illustrations did not come across well on my regular Kindle although I'm sure they would be more interesting on a Kindle Fire and add to the experience.

Private Down Under
Private Down Under
I agree with another reviewer: One star is being generous. The characters are insipid; bland; boring and not original. The dialogue is so stupid as to induce cringes. There are a couple of scenes in the book where I wanted to scream when I read them. One was a description of the hero's car accident, wherein he climbs out of the wrecked car and is given the forensic report on the other driver. Really? How fascinating. I know things happen slowly here in the states with regard to crime scene investigation, but to find out that the Aussies can gin up a forensic report AT THE SCENE is positively embarrassing.

Another scene which doesn't pass muster: one of Private's richie-rich clients (are there any other types?) is being threatened with a very sharp object, and is being held down by the assailant. The Private detectives burst in, and then just STAND THERE. Doing nothing. Watching. In fact, the narrative goes like this "...and Johnny and Darlene realized the best thing they could do was nothing." Holy carp! If I am paying these dolts tons of money, and I am being threatened with being filleted like, well, a carp, I would hope my 'protectors' would do SOMETHING, except watch. A final scene that begs credulity... the perpetrator of the main crimes is holding a VIP at knife point. The cops are behind her, about 10 feet, guns drawn. She doesn't know they are they there. Do they shoot? Do they act like cops in any way? NO! They simply stand there, too!

This was an ignorant story written by a lame-brain. Do NOT waste your money or time on this dreck. BAD, BAD, HORRIBLE!
The Umbrella Man and Other Stories
The Umbrella Man and Other Stories
小生は、Harry Potterに挫折した後Encyclopeida Brownシリーズで洋書を初めて読破する経験ができ、その後そのシリーズを第五巻まで読みました。同シリーズでのレビューでも書きましたが、これらは読みやすくてそれなりには面白いけれども、本格的な小説を読む喜びまで期待できるものではありませんでした。
 本書は、読みやすい上に、本格的な小説を読む喜びを味合うことができます。他の人も書いておられますが、ぞくぞくするような感覚がたまりません。ただし、私は好きですが、人によっては「怖い」とか「気持ち悪い」という感想を持つ人もいると思います。私の家内が読んだらそう言うと思います。
 なぜかこれらの短編はミステリーに分類されるようですが、いわゆる推理小説ではありません。ただ、落ちのところでどんでん返しがあるものが多くて、いわゆる純文学の短編のようにストンと終わるわけではないので、そういう意味でミステリーなのかなと思ったりします。質の高いエンターテイメントとして楽しめます。
 これから読む人へのアドバイスとして、英語力に自信のない人は頭から順に読むのではなく、短いものから順に読んだ方がよいということです。The Umbrella Man(9ページ)、Man from the South(15ページ)あたりが短くて面白いです。また、The Butlerは5ページと短いのでとっかかりとして適しています。
 英語の勉強のために洋書を読む人にとって、単語や文法が簡単と言うことも大切ですが、内容が面白いということも非常に重要だなと思いました。内容の面白さが読書を続けるための牽引力になってくれます。その意味で、本書は英語を勉強する人にとってもお勧めです。
The Border Legion (Annotated)
The Border Legion (Annotated)
The Border Legion has without a doubt the greatest of Zane Grey's villains--the blond beast, Gulden, whose way with women was a rope and a cave, the most vicious and depraved of the border bandits. And as in earlier works by Zane Grey this novel had to undergo many editorial changes demanded by his publisher before they would print it. Things today which seem very tame indeed, but yet his editors felt did not belong in fiction, regardless of how historically accurate Zane Grey was being to actual events upon which this book was based. When Joan Randle decides to follow her 'boyfriend' Jim Cleve after he departs because of a quarrel she finds herself captured by this outlaw gang and held, only to find out Jim has joined them as well. (She had accused Jim of not being man enough to even be bad, so he sets out to prove her wrong.) This book is a fascinating look at what happens to men, I should say, mankind, when driven by their passions and left to revert to the barbaric when the environment is one of dog eat dog i.e. "survival of the fittest" a phrase used by Darwin and popularized by Zane Grey, as he subscribed to some of Darwin's theories, as seen in many of his novels as he expressed his philosophy of life, and concerns for America in his writings. It has been said more students learned of Darwin's theory from reading Zane Grey than they did in the class room. But if one goes beyond any "hidden" agenda and reads this book as a novel of escapism and adventure and romance it is a good read I think you will enjoy.
P.S. If you want the unexpurgated version as Zane Grey wrote it buy a copy of Cabin Gulch, Five Star Westerns 2006.
Naruto, Vol. 55: The Great War Begins (Naruto Graphic Novel)
Naruto, Vol. 55: The Great War Begins (Naruto Graphic Novel)
Books and comic books in general are usually expensive. Even Scott Pilgrim is more expensive despite being a paperback that is almost as this as this. However Scott Pilgrim's problem is the spine being damaged from opening the book.
Many manga publishers including Viz Media respect the long term presentational quality of their printing, this is very nice to have on the bookshelf as oppossed to my damaged Scott Pilgrim books. The material is durable, it has a thin plastic sheet embedded to the cover to improve the texture and aesthetic appeal of the book. This all ultimately adds to the great quality of Kishimoto's artwork.

Kishimoto's use of colour on the cover is on par with what anime studios can do which is impressive considering he doesn't use computer's to manipule the colour after drawing.

Then the content of the book is packed. There is a lot great art and use of dialogue which keeps you reading for hours. Although manga is quicker to read than light novels, the art provided richens the experience and as a result of a better experiece from reading, the reader will reread moments multiple times, especially if you are a long time Naruto fan who keeps upto date and may use past volumes as a reference to predict later plot points.

Although manga is cheap to buy, the mangakas (manga artists) are extremly hard working to the point they release new chapters faster than American comic releases. The authors work long hours to provide a longer and detailed story which can only be provided through this medium. So you may find yourself spending a lot for the whole collection, I recommend being economical and looking out for discounts so that you can bulk buy the volumes cheaper as I'm currently doing with my manga collecting. Currently there are 59 volumes released, volume 60 is due for release sometime in Febuary.
Preda (Italian Edition)
Preda (Italian Edition)
Preda è stato il mio primo libro di Crichton e sono rimasto davvero stupito dalla rapidità con cui l'ho letto. Un thriller intrigante pieno di colpi di scena e situazioni critiche per il protagonista, con un'attenzione ai dettagli scientifici davvero molto approfondita. Consigliato senza alcun dubbio se volete un thriller fantascientifico!
Rita Hayworth's Shoes: A Novel
Rita Hayworth's Shoes: A Novel
Before I jump into writing about Francine Lasala's absolutely fabulous novel, RITA HAYWORTH'S SHOES (yes I loved it), I have to tell you, I too am a shoe girl/chick/broad! I have more shoes and handbags and LBDs (little black dresses) in every size, because like many, let's face face it, MOST women my weight bounces, forget yo-yo-ing, SO its ALL about ACCESSORIES! Right now we're thin and LOVING it! The reason being, we're walking long distances, eating hearty breakfasts and skipping junk, but back to Francine. I see some darling red shoes on the cover of her book and hello, Rita Hayworth, I have to read this. Thank goodness I did! You have to love, Miss Smarty Lasala not only writes novels, she's quite the promoter. She includes a nice little chunk of how new novel which is also out now, so once you finish this one, you're going to want to buy her newest book. But first here's a little bit about, Francine Lasala's novel, RITA HAYWORTH'S SHOES.

Amy wants a ring on her finger so badly she agrees to get married at the counter of KATZ DELI, while the butcher preps a very lean brisket and schmear. Then the groom calls two hours late to say he's not going to show-up for the "I dos." No one wants to believe it, but then again, they never did like that David, and please, the wedding location was his idea!

Turns out he's run off with another woman, but Amy still has hope that he'll come back to her and they will live a life of marital bliss. Meanwhile her friends and family can't be happier, believing David is the reason for her less than happy state and has held her back from getting her PhD at the University where she works.

Francine Lasala's novel, RITA HAYWORTH'S SHOES is a sassy chick-lit, romance, mystery mixed with magical realism, which I'm finding incorporated into fiction more and more. At a low point in her life, Amy comes across a pair of red shoes supposedly worn by film star, Rita Hayworth at Smitty's second hand shop. After some nudging, well, you know what happens.

"She had never been one of those women who went gaga for shoes, but there was something about these- shiny, red leather pumps with a dramatic high heel and an embellishment on the toe that looked like a happy little daisy."

Keep an eye on that daisy and where Amy travels in those red shoes. Lasala creates a wonderful menagerie of characters but you better pay attention, because it's easy to get lost in the drama of RITA HAYWORTH'S SHOES. There are lots of twists, turns and surprises right up to the very last page, so don't expect to know the ending until you've read the final word. But the best part? Of course, there's a happily ever after!

Francine Lasala's newest novel is THE GIRL, THE GOLD TOOTH & EVERYTHING.
The Rubber Band (A Nero Wolfe Mystery Book 3)
The Rubber Band (A Nero Wolfe Mystery Book 3)
Clara Fox is at the center of two mysteries: 1) one of her employers accuses her of stealing $30,000 of company monies and 2) she asks Wolfe to help find an associate of her deceased father and recover monies promised when he was a member of the Rubber Band.

The Rubber Band was a group of 6 men who, 40 years previously, helped an Englishman escape the law in Silver City, NV in return for possible rewards if he inherited a part of his family's wealth in the future. Time has passed. Clara has found two survivors of the band and the daughter of another. Together, the four have located the Englishman who is now a peer and extremely wealthy. They ask Wolfe to help them prevail upon the Englishman to fulfill his promise.

Before long, two men are murdered and the lives of two women, including Clara, are threatened. The two cases appear related and people are not what they seem.

This is an early Nero Wolfe, but it has all the classic ingredients. Wolfe stays in his office/home and directs Archie, his assistant, and a group of hourly wage PI's. He never misses a meal or his two daily sessions with his prize-winning orchids in the greenhouse on the roof. The police and district attorney come to his office to threaten and cajole. But Wolfe sits and thinks and solves the cases.

This is a great mystery (as are all Nero Wolfe mysteries). It is well constructed--events are carefully interwoven and characters are unique. It relies on interrogation, deduction, and intellectual prowess not DNA, forensic evidence and violence. You can follow along and see if you can find the killer.
The Efficiency Expert
The Efficiency Expert
I gave this four stars, but that was in the context of antique pulp fiction. In terms of literature, I’d probably give it a 2 1/2. I thoroughly enjoyed it, on it’s own terms. One criticism that I have of critics is that they frequently apply standards to works that they criticize which are inappropriate. I think that the artist’s purpose and methods of achieving that purpose ought to be relevant to the critic. For example, “The Lord of the Rings” is a unique and outstanding work of literature. It has since inspired a legion of imitations, all of which are inferior to the original. It is a seminal work of the highest quality. It would be correct to observe that the characterizations in the “Lord of the Rings” are weak. Does that lessen the importance of the work? Not at all. The standard is poorly chosen for that particular trilogy.
Point of Origin: Scarpetta (Book 9) (Kay Scarpetta)
Point of Origin: Scarpetta (Book 9) (Kay Scarpetta)
This book is what I consider the last good Scarpetta novel; all the books that follow it (The Last Precinct, Blowfly, Predator, et al) are hardly worth the paper they're printed on.

The plot centers on the suspected arson of a media magnate's home which resulted in the death of one female and several prize horses. A new villain enters the picture (Newton Joyce), and he's aided by serial killer Carrie Grethen, newly escaped from prison. There's a subplot involving Benton Wesley, Scarpetta's FBI paramour, which turns into the mother of all plot twists in her later novel 'Blowfly'. I felt that Cornwell didn't give her characters enough chance: she rapidly ditches both Joyce and Grethen in favor of Le Loup-Garou, her villain of 'Black Notice' and 'The Last Precinct', which in my opinion was a mistake.

The supporting characters are back: Lt. Pete Marino (I swear if she kills him off I will never touch one of her novels again), FBI agent Lucy Farinelli, Scarpetta's neice (although too much of a deal is made of her lesbianism), and one of the best villains in contemporary thrillers, Carrie Grethen. Carrie can be placed easily next to Hannibal Lecter in terms of fictional villains.

As you read, you'll learn about how arson fires are investigated and, incidentally, how fires work in terms of accelerants and point(s) of origin (where the fire initially begins); you'll also learn a little bit about how a scanning electron microscope (SEM) works. Cornwell's science is always dead-on, and this book is no exception.
Henry VI, Part 2: Arkangel Shakespeare
Henry VI, Part 2: Arkangel Shakespeare
Shakespeare's histories are best read back to back in sequence, which gives a broader context and more of a historical sense. It can be a bit confusing to just take in one at random, more or less like dropping in on the middle of a story.

That is particularly true here, in the second part (of three) about the reign of Henry VI. There is a lot going on in this play, and some of the acts seem to be there mainly to move us along in the historical narrative as efficiently as possible. There are some interesting characters who Shakespeare takes some extra time to develop a bit more, but most of them are just various plotters in various factions who get killed off by each other in short order.

The most interesting part of this play is Act IV, which is all about Jack Cade's rebellion. Shakespeare portrays him as nothing more than a rabble-rousing, populist demagogue, and brutally satirizes such movements as pandering to the lowest common denominator. Cade promises his followers, who are mostly petty criminals, a sort of communist utopia, with an unending supply of free booze. Then, as his first official act, he executes a clerk for being literate enough to be able to sign his own name, rather than simply making a mark like a plain, honest man---and likewise promises to "kill all the lawyers." And things go downhill from there.

This isn't one of Shakespeare's best histories, but it has its merits and is definitely not bad either. This fully dramatized audio edition is quite well done and easy to follow---a very good way to experience these plays.

The Power of Collaborative Solutions: Six Principles and Effective Tools for Building Healthy Communities
The Power of Collaborative Solutions: Six Principles and Effective Tools for Building Healthy Communities
Book Review:
The Power of Collaborative Solutions by Tom Wolff
The book The Power of Collaborative Solutions proves once again that Tom Wolff is one of the preeminent voices in the country today, on building healthy communities through collaboration. As the Director of the Santa Barbara Pro-Youth Coalition (PYC), I witnessed Tom's unique ability to empower all segments of our community to identify and solve our seemingly most complex social and community issues through collaboration.
Tom's sincere, informed and humble manner and his vast hands-on experience with communities across the nation, at once inspired a close to unbelievable trust among the parents and youth that PYC sought to serve. Almost ten years later and some of these youth are parents themselves - they still ask about Mr. Wolff.
Anyone who is seriously seeking solutions to whatever community issues face them must read this book. Tom does not just identify problems - Tom offers practical, attainable solutions which are still vital to today's pressing community issues.

Living in the Northwoods of Minnesota, and a late splurge into competitive cycling, plus year round commutes on bikes help spike my interest in this movie. The filming was well done, and the human interest stories were pretty much confined to the race itself, and past experiences with different manifestations of the Iditarod. The beauty and the brutality are captured during the presentation. Yet, as the movie focuses on certain individuals, it also drops them with little explanation for what happened to them.

The scratch rate was very high, and I wish the director would have focused A bit on this. Plus some background on the technical aspects of racing and survival in the Weather conditions that challenged the participants, would have added to the viewers appreciation. Such as:: perhaps keeping warm was not much of a problem, but, the last thing one wants to do in deep cold is to get lathered up in sweat. Once that happens, whether from pushing the bike through deep snow, or cycling itself, the cold will set in, and then it becomes difficult to regain warmth. How did the participants deal with sweating, ie stripping layers or technical clothing, electrical systems... A bit of technical data about the bikes themselves, gearing, tire pressures, tubes, tubeless, ice accumulation freezing up brakes, etc. The only thing I remember from the movie was some of racers being stuck in certain gears due to conditions. This could all have been handled quite well if discussed in the movies beginning, or as they moved along the trail.

All in all, an interesting and worthy watch, that in my opinion Could have been a bit better.

Peppa Pig - Scarpe Nuove by animazione
Ho comprato tutta la serie (i 5 DVD in italiano per capirci).

Il prezzo 6,92 a pezzo ... secondo me pure troppo, ma ogniuno decida per se.
Peppa pig e' un personaggio molto facile per i bimbi un po' meno digeribile per i grandi.

Il DVD non e' molto descritto (ad esempio mancano i nomi degli episodi) per cui devi cercare altrove per le info di dettaglio.

Il contenuto comunque e' di qualita', l'imballo originale
le lingue sono inglese ed italiano.

Rimane un prodotto da avere nella possibile scelta di cosa vedere nelle giornate d'inverno.

Amazon e' riuscita a stupirmi: ordinati il pomeriggio arrivati la mattina del giorno dopo.

I just wished I have believed the other negative reviews saying that the second DisplayPort connection didn't work. I thought they were not knowing what they were doing trying wrong cables or having a weak hardware. Those things can totally influence the results. I have a collection of different cables to try and also different monitors and different laptops. I tried all possible combinations to make sure that that port is actually problematic. It is not just one or two units. The second DisplayPort is indeed broken by design. Every single unit is going to behave the same way.

I was actually able to make it work but the solution is hacky as hell and defeats the purpose of having a dock station. Here are my findings:
All tests have a thunderbolt3 enabled laptop connected to the dock with the provided thunderbolt3 cable at the right port (the one in the front).

Test1 with MBP152019 (works)
dock connections: one 4k monitor connected to the first DisplayPort (closer to Power connector)
---------
Test2 with MBP152019 (works)
dock connections: one 4k monitor connected to the second DisplayPort
---------
Test3 with MBP152019 (doesn't work)
dock connections: two 4k monitors connected to the DisplayPorts. Second screen is blank

So.. After those 3 simple tests my conclusion was that as the second DisplayPort alone worked perfectly at 60hz, the problem was just happening when both ports were used simultaneously. Then I decided to trick the internal dock board a bit out of curiosity.

This is what I did in the following order:

1. Disconnect the laptop from the dock
2. Connect *just one* 4k monitor to the *second* DisplayPort (the left one looking from behind)
3. Connect the laptop to the dock station and the monitor works normally at 60hz
4. Connect the other 4k monitor to the *first* DisplayPort (the right one looking from behind)

Voila! Everything worked as expected. At this point you have two 4k monitors working independently (no mirror) at 60hz. Of course this defeats the purpose of having a dock if I have to repeat all those steps every time the laptop sleeps.

I repeated all the tests described above several times and the result was always the same. This is how I concluded that this model has actually an internal design problem and Im pretty sure that every single unit is going to behave exactly the same way. It is sad because it had a lot of potential! I really wanted to like this model as it had the limit price point I was decided to spend. I returned the unit and payed decided to pay the extra dollar to get the Elgato dock that I already knew it worked.

Shame on the engineering team and management behind this project. You are just incompetent.
Microsoft Xbox One Kinect Sensor Bar [Xbox One](Renewed)
Microsoft Xbox One Kinect Sensor Bar [Xbox One](Renewed)
I ordered two Xbox One Kinect sensors for a project i am working on and i ordered them around a day apart but both came from the same seller who was selling certified refurbished (this is a 100% lie as Microsoft does not authorize any dealers or distributors to certify anything), however there is a considerable savings so i was willing to take a chance that it could be a little banged up but fully expected the sensor would be in full working order. Both sensors i bought smelled really bad of cigarette smoke so the seller is likely a pawn shop simply passing off pawned/used sensors as certified refurbished which shouldn't be allowed. BUYERS BEWARE you get what you pay for, make sure your sensor fully works, one of mine did not arrive and was 100% dead on arrival which i returned and have since bought another sensor which is on it's way, so hopefully this 3rd sensor will work.
Earthing Pillowcase Grounding Pillow Case with UK Plug for Better Sleep Emf Protection(20X30in)
Earthing Pillowcase Grounding Pillow Case with UK Plug for Better Sleep Emf Protection(20X30in)
The first thing I did was test the sheet with a multimeter for actual conductance from the sheet to the socket which proved fine wherever I touched the hatches on the sheet.
The first couple of nights I was a little restless but every night after that has been a deep sleep with vivid dreams.
I bought this to help me ground after very deep spiritual work and I must say it worked.
I cant imagine sleeping without one of these.
This works like this:
Your household mains has an earth connection supplied which is electrically connected into the ground to prevent an electric occurring, you cannot get a shock from this cable due to this earth connection. When you plug in this sheet it utilises the earth pin connection from the socket (connected to ground/earth by supplier) and brings the earth potential to your bed meaning its equivalent to lying on the floor outside.
Excellent product.

SfAVEreak Face Mask Disposable Blue (Pack of 50)
SfAVEreak Face Mask Disposable Blue (Pack of 50)
Ordered these to wear in stores and public places as mandated by law in our state due to COVID-19. I prefer these to the reusable masks as they are easier to breathe in and I can just toss it at the end of the day. I've tried a few different brands and these seem the best. I have a tinier head, so they are a bit loose on me, but I just twist the ear loop or tie a small knot in each ear loop and the problem is solved. I will definitely be ordering another box for me and one for my mother once my current box gets low. Good product, good value.
NETGEAR N300 Wi-Fi Router with High Power 5dBi External Antennas (WNR2020v2)
NETGEAR N300 Wi-Fi Router with High Power 5dBi External Antennas (WNR2020v2)
My 9-YO N300 wireless router finally stopped working, so I bought the newer model, which had antennae. When I connected this new one to my cable and computer, it had no output signal. The LAN outputs, which are connected with an Ethernet cable to things like a desktop computer, security system or other device, did not transmit a signal between the Router and the device. I checked the cables for proper function by connecting them directly between the Modem and computer, and they worked fine, so that narrowed the problem down to the Router.

Netgear's online help was of no help. Their website says they offer phone-help, but I was unable to even enter my phone number in the place provided. The window prompts I clicked on to contact customer service kept bumping me back two pages, so I was stuck in a loop of no help whatsoever. They must not want to be contacted. Sad.

That is when I decided to stop trying to contact Netgear, and just send it back to Amazon the very same day. Dropped it off at a UPS outlet, and got a "square box" code image from Amazon so UPS could scan that and know what to do with the modem, which was all packed back neatly in its pretty box, with the power cord and one Ethernet cable. UPS said they would package it in a shipping box and ship it, no worries.

As of now, my delay is extended by 6 days, plus having put 2 hours into messing with the non-working unit, and a 10-mile round-trip to the UPS store.

I liked my FIRST router, and am hoping this was an isolated incident of a faulty unit, and so am buying another one, hoping that the replacement will work. Fingers crossed.
Y: The Last Man Vol. 7: Paper Dolls
Y: The Last Man Vol. 7: Paper Dolls
Y: The Last Man is a 10-volume graphic novel collection about what would happen if an unexplained plague wiped out every male on earth, animals and human alike, in a heartbeat. The premise of this story is that two males were inexplicably spared: a young man named Yorick Brown, amateur escape artist and generally something of a loser, and a capuchin monkey. The primary plotline is concerned with how to keep Yorick alive long enough to figure out just why he survived and whether that information can be used to help repopulate the earth, all while Yorick tries to find his girlfriend and would-be fiance, who was on a sabbatical in the Australian Outback when the disaster struck.

In the process, Yorick and the people who help him encounter crazed "Amazons," who believe it is their duty to remove the last vestige of the male of the species from the planet, an out-of-control Israeli Defense Forces commander who wants Yorick for her own purposes, Yorick's mother, a Representative and one of the few members of the U.S. government left alive, Yorick's sister (with a few plot twists I won't reveal), and various others, some who try to aid him, many of whom try to kill him.

The science in this set of graphic novels frankly doesn't make much sense, so you have to turn your brain off, much as you have to do when you read Superman. Some of the depictions of life without men make sense; some less so. There are plot twists galore and *everyone* has secrets, some of which aren't revealed until the final volume.

I found the artwork in this series to be adequate but uninspiring. It reminded me a little of the old Curt Swan Superman and Legion of Super Heroes days. It's clean and uncluttered but this isn't artwork that's going to blow you away or that you'll want to show off to your friends. The real attraction to this series is the writing. To a certain extent, I think that's appropriate, as this doesn't have the grandeur and the scope of, say, the latest Avengers or Justice League space battle.

In the last volume, Yorick, Agent 355, and Dr. Mann, were on an Australian submarine that had sunk the boat that was taking them to Japan, where they were looking for the other last male on earth, Yorick's monkey, Ampersand, previously captured by a ninja assassin named Toyota. Book 7 opens with the submarine in port in Australia, while a tabloid reporter on the docks is asking people if they had seen, or knew of, any surviving men (not because she knew about Yorick but because that's what tabloid reporters do).

Inside the submarine, Yorick is insisting that he be allowed to go on shore to at least have a try at finding his girlfriend Beth. Beth was on a walkabout in the outback but was home based to an anthropology center in Sydney, where the sub is currently docked. The others are reluctant but eventually agree that he and Agent 355 will make the attempt. They run into trouble at the center and Yorick is unmasked, upon which an onlooker immediately calls the reporter who had previously been interviewing people at the dock. She quickly arrives on the scene, takes out Agent 355 with a taser, and unmasks Yorick. Knowing that she has the story of the century, she has Yorick strip, hold up a current edition of her employer's daily paper, and takes a picture (warning: full-frontal nudity).

After a brief flashback which reveals more about Agent 355's past, she awakes to find Yorick in his boxers and finds out what has taken place, so they head out looking for the reporter to see if they can stop the story. Meanwhile, Dr. Mann and Rose, the eyepatched sub crew member have been getting closer and learning more about each other, leading to a midnight kite-flying expedition where, for the first time in this series, Dr. Mann manages to relax and to even smile, leading to ... um ... activities that make her smile even more. Afterward, Rose reveals that she wants to join the team and go with them to Japan.

Yorick and Agent 355 manage to track down the reporter, who proves to be resourceful enough and determined enough to take on Agent 355. She forgot one thing, though, and so Yorick and 355 get another chance. The ending of this sequence might surprise you, though, so I'll just stop right here. I'll also not reveal the next bit about our eyepatched crewman, Rose. Suffice to say that, as usual, Vaughan has a few surprises up his sleeve.

And speaking of surprises, with the reporter issue resolved, Yorick and 355 finally get some news about Beth. They track down her favorite watering hole only to find that she's just taken off for Paris, due to a discussion that she and Yorick had had (revealed in an earlier flashback).

Since it's been a while since we've looked in on the rogue Israeli general, Vaughan reveals that she's made her way to America and to the office of Yorick's mother, now a Secretary in the new presidential administration. The confrontation between the two is brief and violent.

Vaughan seems to be touching all the bases in this issue, since our next visit is to California where Yorick's sister Hero has found Beth, whom we last saw making love to Yorick in an abandoned Catholic church. Much to Hero's, and our, surprise, their brief tryst had some consequences, as it is a very visibly pregnant Beth that answers the door. Beth is convinced that she's bearing a son but has not been to a doctor for fear of the consequences of having to explain just how she can be pregnant.

Hero's journey to Beth was to deliver a letter that Yorick had written. Beth claims that it's just a goodbye letter but we find out later that it's a bit more than that. Again, you'll have to read the book to find out the contents. Both women are surprised by a nun and two women dressed as Catholic Swiss Guards, who are looking for a male born of a virgin birth, who is reputed to be the next pope and savior of the Catholic church. Is that Beth's child? You know the drill... read the book to find out.

The next sequence consists of some flashbacks which reveal more about Agent 355 than we've seen thus far and provide a great deal of insight as to just why she is the way she is. Some of it is moving, some of it is violent, all of it is well written. The next set of flashbacks, oddly enough, are about Ampersand, and how Yorick ended up with what we now find out was the wrong monkey: a lab monkey instead of a monkey to be trained as an assistant for disabled people. We then flash forward to the present day, where Toyota gets her comeuppance from a mere monkey, who escapes from her and gets lost in the crowd at the port where her ship is docked. And on that note, the book ends.

There is a lot going on in this book, a lot of insight about the characters, a lot of continued movement on the various threads. I think another reviewer had it right that we've got a big jigsaw puzzle here and this book just laid out several pieces for us to see. I still really like what I read and love what Vaughan is doing with these characters. The writing is strong, consistent, and believable, and we really do care about, and want to see what happens to, Yorick, 355, and Mann.

I wanted to love this pressure cooker. It was a GREAT price and advertised as an "11 in 1" with the same price as the InstaPot Duo "7 in 1." I thought-GREAT! More features for the same price! Um....not exactly. There is no high pressure/ low pressure function switch on this machine, so it actually compares to the bottom-of-the-line, first generation InstaPot Lux. It's advertised with an Egg function, but there is no Egg function. (This shouldn't be a big deal if you could set the cooker manually. ) BUT- the biggest problem of all is that the Manual function doesn't allow you to choose any time less than 30 minutes!!!!! Whaaat? On a pressure cooker you definitely need to be able to set time less than 30 minutes. Finally- the instruction manual is good for a laugh. Written in very poor English and does not address very simple questions. Sorry y'all.... I had to return this and buy the better name brand.

Mentos Licorice Mint Chewy Dragees rollos de 1.32 onzas (Paquete de 40)
So, here's my take on this. I was hesitant to buy because, well, this isn't like a single tube of these things. Its a case. How would I get rid of them if they weren't any good? But I loved them! I agree they aren't as sweet as black jelly beans, but they sure aren't like the non-sweet licorice you find in Europe. They were 75% the way to jelly bean. What I liked was the sharp crunch of the bite. The shell of the jelly bean is, after all, where the flavor is, and the shell of these is great! So, I ate my case and am buying another one.
