Trade Like Warren Buffett
Trade Like Warren Buffett
I am a Finance MBA and Buffettphile and this book barely held my attention. They did a very poor editing job. The numerous errors detract from the work. A lot of "Buffett-like" and "Buffett-style" speculation but not so much Buffett.

The book is lacking in too many areas to illustrate them all. I'll use the chapter on merger arbitrage as an example. Mr Altucher mentions some studies on merger arbitrage and how you can improve your success rate. He completely fails mention Graham's criteria for entering a merger arbitrage transaction as stated in the Intelligent Investor. The criteria are annualized 20% expected return and an estimated success probability of 80% or greater. Buffett probably still uses these. His overall treatment of merger arbitrage is woefully superficial. Anyone can calculate the return on capital if the merger succeeds. How do you determine the expected return on capital if the merger fails? How can you determine the implied probability of success from current market pricing? These and many other critical areas to one who practices merger arbitrage are not discussed.

While the book is not written in sufficient detail to actually be useful, Mr Altucher did cite many academic studies that I am anxious to read when I have the time. Mr Altucher, you got me. You put "Buffett" in the title and I bought the book.
TypeScript High Performance: Code for performance, use asynchronous programming, and deliver resources efficiently
TypeScript High Performance: Code for performance, use asynchronous programming, and deliver resources efficiently
Initially I was very interested in the contents of this book. The overall idea of paying attention to code quality and performance is very important and I was glad to find such a book.
However starting to do some coding using the samples I quickly came accross a major mistake, at the beginning of the book, in the 'string concatenation' example: the first loop has 40000 iterations, the second 400000 iterations?! (you can see this in the online preview of the book and the downloadable code on github). This coding mistake explains the huge time difference of both loops. On top of that: Timings are given for Chrome, Internet Explorer an Edge. When running the code example in Firefox (with equal amount of iterations) I get the opposite results consistently: concat is slower than +=!
So, it seems not that easy to come to the conclusion that concat is much faster...
Conclusion: very expensive book which looses its credibility very quickly. I'm not saying everything is wrong in this book but it's not a fair business to sell such expensive books of poor quality. Sorry, I have to be honest.
Children Who Changed the World: The Childhood Biographies of Gates, Jobs, Disney, Einstein, Ford, Tesla, and Edison
Children Who Changed the World: The Childhood Biographies of Gates, Jobs, Disney, Einstein, Ford, Tesla, and Edison
Of course, we all know famous people used to be children, but until reading this new book, I had not read short childhood biographies of people who changed the world, much less understood their common characteristics. The author does a service by writing this book for adults as it is true that there are biographies for children about these people.

The stories about the childhood of these geniuses have some striking and surprising commonalities, as well as interesting facts. All seven people did not have the exact same characteristics, but often four of them shared some trait or experience. Would we read this to try to develop such gifted people? No, as it is partly the time period of history, world events, and family life which combined to help them. Each person’s story is told until they are about age 21, then stops, as we all know the rest. The author’s observations chapter summarizes his thoughts. He provides a diagram of the traits for all of the people while showing which belong to each of the seven people. It does give one pause to think.

As a teacher, in the fall we would get our new class lists, and when we had maybe 15 boys and 7 girls, we would say it was preparation for a coming war. Who knows, but it stopped our possible complaining about how active our classes would be. What I mean is people are born at certain times and that the future doesn’t just happen all at once someday in the far future. A life starts at the beginning.

Yes, the times were important to allowing these people to excel in their chosen fields, as I read in Malcolm Gladwell’s book, Outliers. But there was something going on from birth for each person, and the way was paved with a combination of intelligence, environment, family, and access to the technologies of the time. It began with perhaps being born with a large head, educated parents, or the conditions to foster curiosity and interest in learning. None of these people were complainers, and they all showed continued persistence, and had to deal with less than understanding teachers and principals. They all faced obstacles of some kind and, before reading this book, I had no idea how many things they each had to endure. Yes, luck was on their side, but they did not have completely easy lives. Reading this book shows how true it is when people say luck is how hard you work.

This book has implications for schools who may have gifted education courses to perhaps be more flexible about grade levels and have more willingness to try advanced curriculum with students who could possibly be mislabeled as having behavior issues. It was a near miss a few times for several of these people who obviously did make it through life, but not without having to change schools or be taught at home.

One interesting fact in the book is that some of the people were slow to speak, doing so at ages 3 or 4. I did teach several years of gifted education classes, and it was not unusual for a student to leave a challenge class to walk across the hall to the speech teacher. Of course, that doesn’t happen to all bright people, but it was interesting to me that it was one of the characteristics mentioned.

I recommend this book to bright secondary students struggling with the prescribed curriculum, parents dealing with gifted children and the related challenges, and schools looking to be more empathetic to very intellectual children. Often, it is a difficult road for children and families. This author understands.

"It Always Seems Impossible Until It's Done.": Motivation for Dreamers & Doers
I love this little book. The best way to utilize it in my opinion is to simply open it up anywhere and read a few quotes. Every morning I will read a page or two to get my day motivated. I've given three away as gifts already. It's filled with great quotes. Only thing I'm not thrilled about it is there doesn't seem to be any order of the way the quotes are organized.
Invisible Branson: Definitive Guide to Becoming a Business Rock Star
Invisible Branson: Definitive Guide to Becoming a Business Rock Star
The Invisible Branson was a timely book. I simply couldn't put it down.
It dissects Richard Branson strategies from a learning and educational perspective rather than just telling the reader how great Branson is -- a subject adequately covered elsewhere.
What makes this book unique is the diversity of the authors' backgrounds and experience: a blend of eastern Buddhism, advertising and marketing knowhow coupled with true understanding of how the mind works.
The Invisible Branson certainly fills a need for the entrepreneur who wants to create a brand for themselves in their own right without sounding like some sort of egomaniac. It also highlights the important difference between empty style and solid substance.
What appealed to me is the way the authors have gone to extreme lengths to explain that the key to earning the status of a business 'rock star' like Branson is about building your reputation on solid core values consistent with the real you.
It is about far more than strutting about and feeding the ego; it is about running your enterprise so well that you outstrip your competition as a matter of course. Branson, like him or not, has done just that and The Invisible Branson analyses his unique approach in a way you can learn from and above all, apply to your own situation.
The information in The Invisible Branson is presented in a deceptively easy read that is enjoyable and easy to understand and digest. It's invaluable to business owners and managers. It definitely hit the right chords with me.
Complete Satchmo Plays King Oliver + 15 Bonus
Complete Satchmo Plays King Oliver + 15 Bonus
I have been enjoying the music of Louis Armstrong for over 60 years and I was unaware that this recording existed until the last few weeks. It had originally been released as a Long Playing record in the 1960's but with only 12 tracks on it. More recently it came out on the Blue Moon label as a CD, but it passed me by. So now we have all of the tracks from the recording session in September/October 1959, plus some alternative tracks as well as some tracks from other 1950's recordings, plus some recordings made in the 1920's. In all, a total of 39 tracks. Included are two versions of West End Blues ( 1928 and 1955 ) which are worth the money alone. The recording is excellent and there is also a 16 page booklet that includes the original Liner notes. The group that made the Satchmo plays King Oliver tracks was the group that visited the UK in early 1959, I was lucky enough to see Louis when he played in London, a magical event. All of the tracks on this reissue are excellent, but I would suggest that the 2 versions of " St James Infirmary " are some of the latter Louis Armstrong's best tracks. This reissue does raise the question just what else is lying ignored in some Record companies vaults ? Where, for example, is the Eddie Condon/ Louis Armstrong Newport Jazz Festival recording ? If you are a fan of Louis, you will love this recording. Buy it, you know it makes sense.
Jupiter's Moon [DVD]
Jupiter's Moon [DVD]
One of the quality’s of great cinema is when you find yourself at a loss for how to describe a movie, where the listener simply has to watch it to fully understand its power. Jupiter’s Moon is one of those films. A Syrian refugee desperate to escape his country and find his father discovers that he possesses the ability to fly. What follows is a parable driven thriller that captures human struggle within a society that is devoid of hope.

This movie was a reminder of why I love movies in the first place. When you take a story that is grounded in human emotion and tangible reality, and add a single drop of the fantastic. Director Kornel Mundruczo states that, “the image of someone flying stays with me. When and how did we lose that innocence and our belief in miracles? If we lost that belief what are we living for?” He achieves his goal in creating a story that asks that question in the midst of a society that faces subjugation and violence. His main character isn’t a super hero. He’s a completely average human being who has experienced something unworldly and has no explanation for it. But its those who witness it that experience the revelation of something impossible, ranging from curiosity to terror.

The music alone is absolute perfection. It flawlessly scores the extraordinary visuals with unique sounds that feel as if something is slightly wrong with our reality. The sound of the unknown becoming known. The fluid cinematography is beyond belief with long expertly crafted shots that keep you constantly attached to the action and practical effects that created the films one of a kind visuals. Jupiter’s Moon is an amazing cinematic journey that shows how the impossible can become tangible and what happens when we forget to open our eyes and look up.
Christmas In The Heart
Christmas In The Heart
Many people thought that Bob Dylan's album Christmas in the Heart must have been some kind of sick holiday joke back in 2009, but I think it has held up well in the years since. This is one of the more offbeat, but finest holiday albums released in the past 20 to 25 years. And as the years (and Christmases) go by, it seems more and more that this is the Christmas seed from which all of Dylan's recent "great American songbook" albums have sprung from. This album was meant to echo the classic, old-time Xmas songs of way back when. Like Sinatra, Doris Day, Bing Crosby, Burl Ives and company. The arrangements and production values reflect that. Yes, Bob's voice is ragged, creakly, sandpapery and rough, but you get a feeling that he puts new life into these songs which can seem tired at best in the hands of another singer. And you feel that he truly believes the sentiments expressed in these songs, something very rare in today's Xmas albums. Another trick of the trade that Bob (and perhaps everybody) knows: just like the late great Leonard Cohen, Bob uses sweet female voices to be the sugar on his sometimes hard to get vocals. The backup singers here remind me of the Andrews Sisters. The point is that this album works.
Highlights include Here Comes Santa Claus, I'll Be Home for Christmas, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, The Christmas Song and more. I'd never heard the song Christmas Island before, but now I have to rank it among my favorite Xmas songs. It's cute and kitschy. This album is recommended for Dylan fans, Xmas album nuts, and those who grow a bit tired of the holiday fare on Lite FM. It's also a wonderful primer for those who wish to get into (or try to appreciate) Dylan's more recent standards albums, Shadows in the Night, Fallen Angels and Triplicate. All in all a nice recommendation. Happy (very early) Holidays!------------------------------PEACE
BTW-The one bad song was Must Be Santa. Dylan doing a polka??!!
Down In The Groove
Down In The Groove
After two eighties-production, synthesiser-drenched albums in "Empire Burlesque" and "Knocked Out Loaded", Dylan tried to get back to a more bluesy, rootsy sound with some of the material on this almost universally-panned failure of an album in 1988.

TRACK LISTING

1. Let's Stick Together
2. When Did You Leave Heaven
3. Sally Sue Brown
4. Death Is Not The End
5. Had A Dream About You, Baby
6. Ugliest Girl In The World
7. Silvio
8. Ninety Miles An Hour (Down A Dead End Street)
9. Shenandoah
10. Rank Strangers To Me

So, is it time for a reassessment? The first track "Lets Stick Together", previously done by Canned Heat and Bryan Ferry certainly rocks a fair bit, in an upbeat, guitar-driven, chunky riff blues style. I like it and it is certainly a relief after some of the keyboard-dominated, backing vocal-drowned songs from the last two albums. This is, at least, a down 'n' dirty blues. Bryan Ferry used a similar riff on his version of "The Times They Are A-Changin'" on his "Dylanesque" album. "When Did You Leave Heaven"? is a laid-back devotional song that would not have been out of place on "Shot Of Love". "Sally Sue Brown" is a blues cover dealt with in a rousing, enthusiastic fashion. "Death Is Not the End" is the first Dylan original on the album. It begins with a lovely, evocative harmonica and has a fetching, quiet tender as Dylan tells us, sonorously, that "death is not the end". It has a nice sound to it, and a certain laid-back beauty. There are all sorts of assorted musicians on this album, almost too many to mention, but it does ensure that the music is of a high quality throughout.

"Had A Dream About You Baby" is an organ-driven rocking blues that, had it appeared on "Blonde On Blonde" would have been hailed as a work of genius. To me, it is not too dissimilar to some of the upbeat bluesy numbers from that 1965-66 period. "Ugliest Girl In The World" is another fast tempo number with clearly throwaway, tongue-in-cheek lyric. I really haven't got a problem with this album. It is the superior product to the previous two. I think most people seem to accept that the shuffling, rhythmic, gospelly fun of "Silvio" is a good track that begs more than one listen, for sure. Dylan sounds confident and enthusiastic on the track and the backing vocals add their own vitality to it.

It seemed to be de rigeur to slate pretty much every second Dylan release as being an "embarrassment" and praise every other one as being "a return to form". This is a myopic view in my opinion. "Ninety Miles An Hour (Down A Dead End Street)" is a soulful piece of gospel. Sure, it's not "Tangled Up In Blue" but what the heck, I like it anyway. Similarly, if Dylan wants to record "Shenandoah" in a folky, gospel style, so what? Again, I actually really like it. Springsteen gets away with it, why not Dylan? I think it's great. The closing track of this short album, "Rank Strangers To Me" has Dylan at his bleakest. It is a slow-tempo, haunting ballad of the sort that the afore-mentioned Springsteen would do over the next few years too. It is a bit of a hidden gem, with a sumptuous bass line.

Many have cited this as a nadir in Dylan's career. I would beg to disagree a little, I do not mind the album as much as they seem to. It is certainly nowhere near as bad as "Dylan" and, personally, I much prefer it to the strange "New Morning". Whenever I listen to it, I am always pleasantly surprised.
Pina Colada (Jazz Mix)
Pina Colada (Jazz Mix)
It was late 2001, and I was on duty, in military uniform, representing my country as an aide to a senior military officer. We were in the cafe at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, at a working lunch with a senior officer of the Malaysian armed forces, and all of a sudden I became aware of this song. I lost track of the conversation and this song pulled me right on in, slow and smooth.

I called the waiter over, and in the middle of the lunch meeting asked what song this was. Not knowing, the waiter brought over the manager, and by then both the Malaysian host and my star-wearing boss were looking at me more than a little sideways. I asked the manager for the info, and he brought me the

100 Glow Sticks Bulk Party Supplies - Halloween Glow in The Dark Fun Party Pack with 8" Glowsticks and Connectors for Bracelets and Necklaces for Kids and Adults
Used these for my girls' costumes this year. They did their thang. We tested the glow time on every color, and found that all of them lasted at least 12 hours. However, some do glow brighter than others. The green, yellow, and orange are by far the brightest, and will completely drown out any of the other colors that they're placed next to. The initial glow is very, very strong, but will lessen by roughly 1/3 after 15 to 20 minutes. The sticks used in the picture had been lit for approximately 45 minutes and the super bright glow had already faded by that time. These are also extremely sensitive to any minor impacts and will activate when you don't want them to if you aren't careful. We had them crack from putting them back in the tube, setting them down on a table, and gently assembling them with connectors. If you aren't mindful, you will waste quite a few. That being said, keeping in mind what I said above, anyone that has realistic expectations will be more than happy with this purchase.

GUND 6052069 Sesame Street 50th Anniversary Elmo Stuffed Animal Plush, 20"
The color was somewhat off, more orange than red, the cover was not as plush as expected for a Sesame Street endorsed item, the lips were of hard cardboard, which, for a stuffed toy, is not conducive for cuddling. I bought this item for my 2 year old grandson's birthday. He watches Sesame Street videos with me and loves Elmo, so you can imagine my disappointment when I received my shipment.

I'd go 3.5 stars if i could but I'm biased to Annie's brand so i rounded up.

Protip: 2 minutes in my standard microwave with water to the fill-line = Water boils over. I suggest laying a piece of paper towel over the cup even though it says don't cover. Also, adding 20 seconds is the difference between tender noodles and ones that are a bit chewy so do that.

I like making these and then adding a can of tuna as well as hot sauce and oregano.

A detta di mio figlio One piece è un capolavoro, ma le condizioni del libro sono discretamente buone. Ho fatto l'ordine di tutti i volumi speciali di quest'opera e appena aperto il pacco ho visto le copertine: alcune graffiate e altre con degli angoli stropicciati. In qualita di accanita lettrice di libri, vedere le copertine in queste condizioni è un'insulto. Concludo quindi ricapitolando che se acquistate per via del prezzo basso questi manga, non aspettatevi di trovarli in buste sigillate (e quindi in condizioni nuove).

The Case of the Dubious Bridegroom (The Perry Mason Mysteries Book 3)
The Case of the Dubious Bridegroom (The Perry Mason Mysteries Book 3)
I've been reading Gardner's Perry Mason books off and on for many years. Many years ago, I was an intense fan of the series, and read them all, at least once. Now, after a lot of water over the dam, I'm looking at them again.

Those who are used to really fine mystery writers, such as Ross Macdonald, may find the writing style here off-putting. It can be stiff and mechanical. Nonetheless, I still love the general setting: the characters of Perry, Della, Paul, Lt. Tragg, and Hamilton Berger. That, and the ingenious plots, are why I read Perry Mason.

On the whole, the ones written by 1945 are the best. This one was written in 1949, and is good but not great. It opens with a bang (as many do) when Mason dozes off in his office one night, and wakes to discover a shapely young woman coming down the fire escape outside his window. She's been spying on the office one story above. Is she carrying a gun? A good scene follows in which she manages to elude Mason and leave him nonplused.

The story shifts to the people who occupy the office right above Mason's office. Eventually, the head of the business there becomes Mason's client and we learn of a connection between them and the girl on the fire escape. But the real conflict is with the wife of the businessman -- or is she the ex-wife? The man has gone through a Mexican divorce and then married again in Mexico. Unfortunately, the marriage won't hold up in the US, so he is a "dubious bridegroom." Meanwhile, the first wife is plotting a scheme to take over the business! It comes to a head in a Mexican hotel where a number of people spend the night but some don't spend as much of the night as they pretend. Eventually there is a murder, and a witness seems to think that Perry's car was on the scene! How could that be?

There is no Hamilton Burger, although there are good courtroom scenes involving the DA of the jurisdiction where the murder takes place. It's a good story with a good plot that somehow didn't connect with me. Part of the problem is that Mason's client is not very interesting or sympathetic.

MIDNIGHT SONS AND DAUGHTERS
A new favorite series from my favorite author. She weaves the reality of everyday situations and gently places a mirror in place which exposes the thoughts that come into play with the descriptive emotions and inter workings of relationships between friends, family and community. Debbie Macomber is a master weaver, and i pray she keeps prolifically writing her insights and thoughtful unfolding of events and the growth or challenges her characters experience. She has a unique way of bringing one into the story -- as though you're sitting on the front porch watching the parade of people and events unfold, and meet being part of it, right along with them.
Bleach, Vol. 5
Bleach, Vol. 5
Ichigo Kurosaki is one of those many anime heroes that takes his fights very, very personally.

And Tite Kubo's "Bleach Volume 5: Right Arm of the Giant" he's called on to defend his pride against his new rival, a mysterious young man who can destroy Hollows with a spirit-bow. But their competition basically serves as a springboard for his buddies Chad and Orihime, and the mysterious powers that start popping up for them. what's more, events seem to be getting more complicated for Ichigo's little gang, fast.

While Ichigo is left fuming and forgetful after encountering the Quincy Uryu Ishida, Rukia takes a trip to Urahara's shop to find out what the Quincies are... or were. And after learning that Uryu goes to his school, Ichigo tries to trail him -- only to have the acid-tongued Uryu rope him into a Hollow-slaying contest, and deliberately causing Karakura to be overrun. Uryu's goal: to prove that Quincies are superior to Soul Reapers.

And across town, Chad is attacked by one particularly large one as he tries to defend Ichigo's little sister Karin. For all Chad's strength, his only hope is to call on a new power of his own. In the meantime, Orihime is helping her pals clean up when she spots a horrific Hollow octopus, who turns the other students into puppetlike zombies. But when Tatsuki is wounded trying to defend her friend, Orihime gets fighting mad.

"Bleach Volume 5: The Right Arm of the Giant" is something of a crossroad -- the action-packed plot is obviously about to blow out in every direction, with more Hollows than ever before doing nastier things than before. And additionally, it's pretty obvious that soon more Soul Reapers will be entering the scene -- and this might be a bad thing for Rukia.

In the meantime, we get plenty of slam-bang action -- Chad's punching power, Uryu's glowing spirit bow, and even the mild-mannered Orihime turns out to have some power coming from a very unusual source. Lots of green gore, vaporized Hollows, and some creepy varicose veins. The big surprise is that central hero Ichigo is about the only one who ISN'T really doing any fighting, but obviously that's going to start pretty soon, now that Orihime and Chad have shown their abilities.

Fortunately all this grimness and action is leavened by the humor from Kon and Ichigo's classmates, such as Keigo's shrieking horror when he learns that the punky Ichigo is No. 23 in their class ("You're possessed by ghosts! SMART, EVIL GHOSTS!") or Ichigo's ongoing difficulty remembering names and faces. And Orihime's powers -- manifested as a cute little gang of fairies -- are worthy of some chuckles, especially the feisty Tsubaki.

Our orange-haired hero is about the only one who doesn't have much development in this volume -- Chad and Orihime have plenty. Kubo spins quiet shadowed flashbacks into their backgrounds, showing the origins of Chad's "gentle giant" status and Orihime's friendship with the tomboyish Tatsuki. And we get a full introduction to Uryu, a sort of anti-Ichigo -- he's prickly, chilly, sews like a maestro, hates Soul Reapers and there are hints about what motivates him.

"Bleach Volume 5: Right Arm of the Giant" fleshes out two established characters and fully introduces a third one, while building up to what is obviously going to be a big confrontation.
The Collectors (The Camel Club Book 2)
The Collectors (The Camel Club Book 2)
The Collectors

This is the second in the series of books by David Baldacci featuring the cast of characters known as the Camel Club. Set in Washington DC the club consists of a number of eccentric individuals. They have one thing in common and that is to question the workings of government and in a city like Washington there is a lot of government activity going on.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives has been assassinated. A senior official in the Library of Congress dies suddenly with no visible cause of death. Government secrets are being sold to the enemies of the United States with a significant negative impact on the War on a Terror.

One of the victims is a colleague of Camel Club member Caleb. The circumstances of his death appear suspicious to the club members and those fears are compounded when they realise they are being followed. Matters come to a head when following a particular line of enquiry one of the club members is accused of murder.

Alongside but apparently unconnected a team of grifters are carrying out a long con. Their mark is a notorious gangster and their aim is to remove $40 million dollars from his business accounts. Their problem is not so much the robbery but in the getting away with it afterwards. The gangster is notorious for his viciousness in dealing with anyone deemed to have crossed him.

Somehow these matters become entangled and Baldacci has created a fast-moving thriller which races around the streets of Washington. Using the institutions of government as back-drop settings it further establishes the Camel Club as a viable literary series and in addition leaves the door open for future books about the Club.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 4K [Blu-Ray] [Region Free] (English audio)
Ho deciso di acquistare tutti i titoli di Harry Potter in questa edizione stand alone 4K, perché non sono un amante dei cofanetti.

Devo dire che mi sono piaciute molto le cover e le trovo carine da riporre sullo scaffale anche perché sulla costa, hanno riportato i numeri dell'anno scolastico (da 1 a 7) e questo da una certa continuità visiva.

Detto ciò, secondo me vale la pena acquistare la versione 4K anche per chi non possiede un tv adatto. Il motivo? Inanzitutto l'edizione contiene anche la versione in blu-ray normale per chi volesse e, acquistandoli in 4K, ve li potrete gustare un domani quando possederete un bel TV 4K hdr.
Insomma una specie di investimento.
Pur ammettendo che non è sicuramente il film migliore per sfruttare tale risoluzione a causa delle scene piuttosto scure e cupe.

Come tutte le custodie dei blu-ray, segnalo che la qualità dei materiali non é dei migliori, sono piuttosto fragiline quindi vi consiglio di farci attenzione.

Perché occhio al prezzo? Io le ho acquistati durante dei forti sconti che proponeva la Warner. Piu ne acquistavi e piú sconto c'era. Mi pare di non aver speso più di 60 euro per tutti e 7!

Jolie grosseur de porte-clé bien qu'un peut trop parfois, cela dépend de chacun vis-à-vis de là où il prend sa place.
Une douceur très agréable, là dessus, rien à dire.
Par contre, je suis extrêmement déçu de la peluche en général. Elle ne ressemble pas à un niffleur, on dirait plutôt un pingouin.
Moi qui suis fanne de niffleur, je suis très très déçu et bien entendu, j'arrive pas à faire le retour. Tant pis...
Du coup, ça ne vaut pas son prix ni toutes les étoiles.
Bad Taste
Bad Taste
Charming beyond belief, Bad Taste is a great example of creativity, hard-work, skill, and persistence paying off with a great movie for not a lot of money. It's not for the prudish, the squeamish, or the pretentious. Rather, Bad Taste is a delightful, instructive, and inspirational movie-making workshop resource. It has great effects gags - including great sets, props, models, folly, and gore - all with EXTREMELY great editing, and all in service of a funny plot with a clever storyline and outrageous sequences.
Bad Taste also has GREAT pacing. There are no boring or unnecessary lulls to pad time. The provisions of exposition and tone are just right, so as the story unfolds and elements are revealed, everything is easy to follow and makes sense in the context of the movie. It has set-ups, and the set-ups have pay-offs. It has fun and funny dialog, fun characters with clear motivations, and tons of action. The lighting, cinematography, directing, choreography, and locations all work well. Even beyond its over-the-top gags, there are also tons of great props, effects, shots, and edits so well crafted and executed that it isn't always apparent that they're not real stunts, objects, or actors being filmed in real locations. And again, it's all in service of what turns out to be a good storyline and a funny movie.
For any fans of practical effects, gross-out comedy gags, and inspired creativity in the face of limited resources, Bad Taste is a must-see, and worth multiple viewings. Really, it's worth owning.

Small Signal Audio Design
Small Signal Audio Design
This is the second edition of Small Signal Design. It's a fascinating book if you are interested in electronic design in the audio field. Mr. Self has included very through explanations of transistor and op amp circuits related to small signal audio design. He explains how circuits work and which characteristics of circuits are important. He builds many of the circuits to prove out theory and his simulations. He then explains the use of these circuits in various pieces of electronic equipment.

This latest edition has a lot more material on design of circuitry that interfaces with for example; phone cartridges. I'm not interested in designing such circuitry, but I still found those sections very interesting and worthwhile, because they added to my overall knowledge of design. This latest edition must be at least 100 pages longer than the first edition, which I also own, and the added pages are very valuable.

I use the knowledge I have gained from Mr. Self's books to better understand audio equipment and to help decide which equipment is well designed. These aren't easy subjects and a couple of readings of the books are required; but, I've found that after reading this book and Mr. Self's book on power amplifiers, I can often look pictures of circuits boards from various pieces of equipment, or the circuit boards themselves, and have an excellent idea of their actual circuitry. I can reference datasheets from say op amps, and tell which ones have better specifications for a particular application. That means Mr. Self is doing a great job of educating me; with some work on my part!

If you enjoy the technical part of audio, especially electronics, this a wonderful book. I also enjoy Mr. Self's humor which makes the material much more interesting.
Royal Canin Small Puppy Dry Dog Food
Royal Canin Small Puppy Dry Dog Food
Both my dogs loved Royal Canin, until they changed the recipe!!!
For the past 3 months there are over 70 complaints with Consumer Affairs!!! I wish I knew this before buying it!!
Both dogs won’t touch it, I ordered the puppy one, which this review is based on, and my older dog always tries to eat it, when the puppy smelled it and walked away the older dog who is 3 went over and smelled it and walked away.
My puppy eats everything except this new recipe food!!!
I will never understand why companies have a good thing going and then change it!!!

NO, I do NOT recommend this brand anymore.

I’ve been a faithful customer with my other dog who was 14 and loved it (she recently passed, no relation to food).

I have the adult bag of food on it’s way and now I regret buying it.

72 people in three months and thousands in vet bills took the time to complain to Consumer Affairs. I wish I read it before buying it.

The green bag of Royal Canin was much loved by all three of my dogs. The new blue bag and the new recipe they won’t touch it. It’s heartbreaking to see them dance as I opened the bag and then smell it and walk away hungry while looking at me like I poured toxins into their dish. I’m very upset about this!!!
Cast Alaska
Cast Alaska
Kind of a documentary. More just watching people fish.
1) yeah, the soundtrack has some more punk/rock'ish music. But if that's your major turn-off from this like some of the other reviews, then I suggest you find a new hobby, or just not watch it.
2) one major issue with one of the fisherman in this. He stated that an 18"-20" Rainbow in the lower 48 is a "fish of a lifetime" I hate to say when someone is wrong, but wow, is he WRONG. Lots of places where wild fish top over the 20" mark. 30" like they're going for is a different story, those are few and far between, or non-existent in some areas.
So yeah, just that one guy with the "I'm from Alaska and smell my own farts" mentality is a little annoying. The older gentleman is pretty humble though, I like him.
NOUHAUS ErgoDraft Drafting Chair, Tall Office Chair, Shop Stool Chair or Standing Desk Chair. Adjustable Chair (Black)
NOUHAUS ErgoDraft Drafting Chair, Tall Office Chair, Shop Stool Chair or Standing Desk Chair. Adjustable Chair (Black)
It's a decent chair, especially for the price. Here are my pros and cons.

Pros:
It's tall enough to use with a standing desk. I can either just sit on it, or slightly rest on it to take a little strain off my legs throughout the day.
I like that it locks in the furthest back position.
I like that the seat rises as the back moves, but the seat rise is only subtle so that you aren't at 90° with the seat back all the way back.
I like that it uses mesh material for the utmost in air flow, no sweaty bottom or back from sitting all day.
The armrests are simple, only move up and down, but I like that they move low enough down to be out of my way when I don't want them and they don't hit my keyboard tray in this position. I debated putting them on at all, but figured I'd want them to hold the chair steady when sitting down or getting up.
The drafting chair round footrest is great for when I want to fully sit, but don't feel the need to lower my desk or chair.
The headrest looks like it sits too far in, but I generally find it to be in a good position. It can move up and down and tilt. I leave it just below my head at the top of my neck and find it fairly supportive.
I really appreciate the degree of lean of the chair back. I have sciatica and other nerve issues with my lower back and being able to recline to 130° is particularly important to relieving some of the stress on my lower back.
It's such a simple thing, but I like the little coat rack on the back. It's so annoying to drape a jacket with a zipper or buttons around the chair shoulders and have them poking into your back or arms.

Cons:
I'm 5'11" and at the lowest setting, the chair is still high enough that I can't put my feet flat on the ground. It doesn't bother me much, but to move around, I have to push with my forefoot.
Each caster has a lock and they are super easy to flip down. I understand why they're there, this is a tall drafting chair after all, but they're a tad annoying.
I'm not a large person, but even I can feel the plastic at the sides of the seat a little bit. More so if I man-spread. This aspect would make this chair uncomfortable on the sides of the thighs for anyone larger than 34 or maybe a 36" waist.
The chair back is not adjustable up/down or in/out. Nor is the seat.
There is a decent bend in the lumbar region, but it isn't adjustable and you can't add any additional support. I think the mesh does fine, but others might find it lacking.
When wearing shorts, the mesh at the edge of the seat tends to rub on my skin, not particularly comfortable.
I'm not sure about the longevity of the material. I fear sitting down with a pencil or other similar object in a pocket would easily damage it and it would shred to pieces shortly thereafter. This is only a concern though and I'll update this review with any changes or after a year of use to comment on longevity.

Overall, I'm pretty satisfied with this chair. It does lack in configuration options and I do have concerns about the longevity of the material, but the rest of the build seems pretty sturdy. Assembly was easy, though the directions weren't as clear with regard to identifying which screws were which and there were extras that weren't called out in the instruction manual making you wonder if you missed a step. The main thing is that I needed a chair that had a decent lean angle and headrest, wasn't leather or non-breathable fabric, and I really wanted something that I could use while standing for additional support. This was the only chair I could find that checked off all those boxes.
Something Wonderful (The Sequels series Book 2)
Something Wonderful (The Sequels series Book 2)
“What is it you think is going to happen?”
Alexandra shivered deliciously. “Something wonderful."

There is always something about historical romance that can get me out of a book slump. There’s just something about them that pulls on my heart strings with their one of a kind love stories. And Something Wonderful didn’t disappoint.

When seventeen-year-old Alex, daughter of a lord and a commoner, saves Jordan, the Duke of Hawthorne from some highwaymen, well that’s when something wonderful begins. It isn’t all flowers and rainbows—that’s what I love about Judith McNaught’s novels. It’s a rollercoaster of emotions.

Jordan is a rake, player—call him what you want. He does not deserve Alex. She has “life is wonderful” goggles over her eyes; is kind, selfless, so trusting, and so naïve. She thinks of Jordan as a god, when he’s nothing but a libertine.

I had a smile on my face the entire beginning of Something Wonderful. After certain circumstances arise, Jordan and Alex are forced into a marriage. Neither wants it. But Alex makes it known that she will accept it. And her young heart immediately falls for Jordan. God, I was cringing at her naivety and declarations of love, for only Jordan to say “Thank you.” But it was also so endearing to me. It showed my black heart how selfless and true young love can be. And hers was.

When Jordan disappears and is declared dead, Alex is broken. But it was her husband’s wish that she be accepted into society, and so she worked hard to become what he wanted. At first, she was so naïve, and so in love with Jordan that she made a fool of herself, because she didn’t know the kind of man he was. She was unknowingly complimenting his mistresses' looks, and becoming the laugh of the ton. Until she changes it all around and realizes how Jordan had played her, and who he really was.

When Jordan returns, it’s to find Alex about to marry his cousin. The only reason he got through the torture he’d been through, was thoughts of getting back to her. He realized she was it for him, and he wanted a life with her. A five star read for me if I didn’t find some parts a bit slow. But still a very enjoyable one, nonetheless.

Something Wonderful takes us on a journey of jealously, betrayal, lust and love. Another great one by Judith McNaught, and I’d absolutely recommend to lovers of historical romance.

"Something wonderful had happened."
Spigen Tempered Glass Screen Protector [Glas.tR EZ Fit] designed for iPhone 12 Pro Max (2020) [6.7 inch] [Case Friendly] - 2 Pack
Spigen Tempered Glass Screen Protector [Glas.tR EZ Fit] designed for iPhone 12 Pro Max (2020) [6.7 inch] [Case Friendly] - 2 Pack
Product is extremely easy to install, like ridiculously easy and so for that I love it. That said on the iPhone 12 Pro Max I will say it causes an appreciable loss of light transmission. It also moves the apparent white point down a LOT. The iPhone 12 Pro are at 6500K nominally and this does not look like 6500K.

If you look at the side by side that’s my phone with protector in store with a naked phone to the right. The difference is easily apparent and becomes even more apparent at max brightness. In the second pic I overlaid another of the protectors onto the display of an iMac Pro; you can see clearly the degree of attenuation and color shift induced. Upon peeling off the adhesive layer/laminate and getting down to bare glass the situation is much better but obviously that doesn’t work.

This is disappointing, I had a Spigen protector on my 11 Pro Max and the color shift and light loss was markedly less. There also seems to be a bizarre polarization effect. The 12 Pro Max looks like a rainbow in portrait and great at 45 degrees towards landscape with polarized sun glasses. The 11 Pro looks great at portrait and goes rainbow at 45 degrees which is more ideal because who holds their phone tilted half way over? I don’t know if this is the display of the phone or if it’s caused by the stack up of the protector glass and plastic film but it’s super annoying. I forgot to take my polarized glasses to the retail store to check and I’m not sure I want to rip off my protector to I find out.
Apple TV
Apple TV
I was really enjoying SEE and The Morning Show. Then I got to episode 3. It tells you to continue watching you have to sign in from an Apple device. I don't own any Apple devices so now I excluded that's not right. It might surprise those at Apple but you are not the be all end all of technology, or all the other brands out in the market would not exist. Not everyone can afford or likes your products. If you are truly trying to compete with Netflix's. Your content should be available to everyone on all platforms, NOT just to those who have Apple devices. UPDATE I called Apple to see why I couldn't sign up for Apple TV Plus. They told me that it's because I don't have their Apple TV box. I'm not going to buy a $200 box just to watch a few TV shows. I will stick with Netflix. Netflix doesn't make you buy expensive equipment to watch their shows.

KINPS [MFI Certified 10ft] USB C to Lightning Fast Charging Cable Compatible with iPhone 12/11/11Pro/11 Pro Max/XS MAX/X/XR, Supports Power Delivery(for Use with Type C Chargers), White
If you need a 10 Ft lightning cable for your Apple devices, this is the one to buy & for good reasons. Never mind the durability (which is great) or that a cable needs to be MFI Certified (it is) but because it is the ONLY one, unless you buy counterfeit (they're all over) and is it really worth saving a few $ on a cable that will ruin your device? The other MFI Certified do not fit in the higher watt brick you need for lightning. (33W, 40W Apple) The others only work in the 12W, which defeats the purpose. I suppose you could buy an adapter, but why? Tech sites ought to make this clear. I initially bought a brand I trust, only to discover the issue & returned it.

I absolutely HATE this laptop. It's probably my own fault for not realizing how Microsoft-ized it is. It's like a virus, an infection, it own communist-socialist system....it constantly pops up with every program and ap in Microsoft's arsenal to convert you to their team. I detest Edge. It's a pile. It wants to trick you into accepting a Microsoft account and One Drive. If you are a Chrome, Google Drive, Play Store fan, this is not the laptop for you. Not to mention all the stinking ads that pop up in the lower right corner of the screen along with every stupid email - legit or spam. I will be getting rid of this pile.
BERLMAN Ergonomic Mid Back Mesh Office Chair Desk Chair with Flip-up Arms and Adjustable Height (Black)
BERLMAN Ergonomic Mid Back Mesh Office Chair Desk Chair with Flip-up Arms and Adjustable Height (Black)
4.5/5 Stars

Putting the chair together was a breeze. The instructions were in the bag with the chair's cushion, and were easy enough to follow. Had a little trouble with two of the five wheels, but a little elbow grease pushed them right in.

Getting the arms on was a little tricky, but only so much as that I had to really hold the arm on while trying to screw the supports in at the same time. And you can't screw it in all the way so you have wiggle room to get the back of the chair on! But the directions warned me of that, so no worries. Just follow the directions!

I had my chair put together in about 30 minutes. The lock feature for the lean-back is nice, and the metal legs are a nice touch, feels sturdy. They're comfortable to rest my feet on since I'm too short to touch the floor (5'3" at the height I need for my desk). I have a keyboard drawer on my desk so I have the chair raised just enough so I can rest my elbows on the arm rests, which are actually very comfortable and soft.

Speaking of soft: the cushion and again the arm rests are SO soft. I haven't used the chair for more than an hour yet but it's more comfortable than my old chair by a long shot. Will update with comfort levels in the future after I've broken the chair in more.

I took off a half star because while the metal legs are nice, they do make a bit of noise when you move the chair around across a tiled floor, specifically when you go over the grout. Not a big deal as I'm not usually moving my chair around, but that's the only noise I hear from the chair at all. No squeaking, no groaning.

I'm glad I upgraded and I would recommend this chair to a friend!

My grandmother always loved black licorice flavored anything. She use to even have a gum. She recently passed away and I’ve never been much of a fan BUT THESE ARE AMAZING! I’m trying my best to not eat all 12 bags in 12 days. Now i ordered these in fall so if you live in TX, or other not states I wouldn’t buy in the summer I wouldn’t doubt it would melt. If you pay attention to temperate when you buy it you won’t be disappointed. I’ve tried similar products and while they are ok, the pale in comparison.

Walkers - Tarro de regaliz (2.8 lbs)
Like so many others, I have mourned the demise of Callard and Bowser and their odd and wonderful packages of wrapped toffees we used to get on occasion as kids here in the US. (They resembled cigarette packages, which we loved.) And like so many others, I agree that these Walkers Nonsuch Licourice Toffees are about as good as Callard and Bowser's -- which means they are strong but creamy, last a satisfyingly long time, and are incredibly delicious.

I started with two of the small bags just to test -- and scarfed those up in about a week. So I immediately graduated to the Big Jar and could not be happier to thus ensure that I always have these toffees on hand. They are that good (and that addictive).

I also have to note that the UK distributor for these candies, R and I Jones, Ltd, is absolutely top-notch. Both of my purchases came lightning fast -- as much as two weeks before the stated delivery date. Can't beat that!

I am now planning to give these toffees as Christmas gifts to those I know like licorice, just to share the dark black joy.

I had bought the 3/4'' version of these a while ago and now needed some 1/2'' pipes for pipe clamps. Compared to the 3/4'' ones, these are pretty bad with respect to the outer surface. While the 3/4'' versions appeared to be annodized and had a smooth black finish, these here appear to have been dipped in black paint which flakes off easily. They feel really rough; probably need to sand them down before using, quite disappointing.
