Quaden Bayels, The Child Victim of the bulls

Quaden-Bayles
Hugh Jackman wanted to send Quaden Bayles, the nine-year-old victim of bullies who in a dramatic video declares he wants to die, a message in which he offers his support and friendship. Wolverine’s interpreter has joined other sports and entertainment stars, including Jeffrey Dean Morgan, to condemn bullying that has profound consequences for the victims.

The boy, so small but already so deeply troubled, showed himself with a tear-streaked face because every day he is targeted by his companions. The boy also said in the outburst that he wanted to die and wanted to commit suicide. In fact, the boy was born with achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism. The reason he is laughed at by his peers is his height.

The fundraiser launched by Brad Williams on GoFundMe to give Quaden and his family a trip to Disneyland, and support organizations that fight bullying, has in the meantime exceeded $ 276,000.

Amie Harwick, the therapist who appeared in the documentary “Addicted to sexting”, was killed in her Los Angeles home. Dr Harwick, one of Hollywood’s best-known sexologists and couple counselors, was found by police outside the entrance to her home in Hollywood Hills.

The agents were called by his roommate, who heard fierce cries coming from Amie’s room. Amie Harwick: the Hollywood therapist died When the police arrived on the scene, they found Harwick’s body crashed to the ground: the therapist threw herself from the balcony of her apartment, located on the third floor, to escape her assailant. The tenant managed to escape because she fled ahead of time: when she arrived at the neighbors’ house, she called the local police station. Amie was rushed to a hospital in the area, where, however, she arrived already dead from her injuries.

The first investigations revealed possible evidence of a scuffle already on the first floor of the building: the doctor would have been forced to enter her home by force. Amie Harwick: Drew Carey is ex-husband Harwick, ex-wife of television host Drew Carey (famous in the United States for being the symbol of the quiz The Price is Right, the original format of Ok, the price is right!), He had reached the notoriety in the world of television thanks to the documentary Dipendenti dal sexting, a film by Joseph Tosconi in which various personalities from very different fields recount this phenomenon, which is on the increase thanks to the internet and apps.

LAPD investigators already have a suspect in this crime: detectives have arrested Gareth Pursehouse at his home in Playa del Rey on charges of murder. Pursehouse and Harwick have been dating for some time and have recently split up. Police learned that Amie had expressed concern about her attitudes and had requested a restraining order. However, the measure had expired and the two had seen each other in recent weeks.

WhatsApp reaches 2 billion active users. An absolute record

9e79bbcf-fe9e-4134-bd9a-eeac2e07f265

WhatsApp continues to grind record numbers and to say it is the platform itself that announces the record of 2 billion active users. Incredible numbers that clearly make the app among the most used in the world and in terms of messaging certainly the most used. The numbers probably highlight the improvement work that the developers are carrying out in the code by introducing week after week novelties capable of making the application more user friendly. An attention that clearly pleases users who decide to reward the app by using it more than others both in general and in this field.

 

Dark mode coming soon

After repeated experimental versions, the new Dark Theme publicly arrived on WhatsApp a few weeks ago. In this case the users who can use it daily are only those with the Beta version by installing an APK. How does it work? Basically, users can activate the new mode directly from the settings of the application itself in the “Theme” section. Here three distinct options will appear: Light, Dark and Energy Saving, which will guarantee energy savings by proposing a color with gray tones rather than completely black.

FANTASY ISLAND: remake of a cult series

The producer is Blumhouse Productions, which in recent years has given theaters a vast assortment of horror titles, some of which are valuable as “Insidious” and “Get out”, others in “splatter with panache” style for teenagers. Well, of such a large assortment of titles “Fantasy Island” is probably the worst.

The story sees five lucky prize contest winners land on a lush island. Waiting for them is the manager of a luxury resort, Mr. Roarke (Michael Peña), whose task will be to create a fantasy for each guest.

“Fantasy Island” takes a dated but successful idea and tries to adapt it to meet the tastes of the new generations. The intriguing premises and the suggestive location, however, do not find the right ingredients that make up the whole so it is a missed opportunity. Unnecessarily convoluted and full of illogical narrative overturns, “Fantasy Island” leaves us exhausted: the word “fantasy” is repeated by all the characters in a ridiculously obsessive way, it is not known why every now and then a man appears who is prowling in the jungle (Michael Rooker ), the characters are all annoying or whining and the ending is nothing short of messy, full of course changes

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X: the first 64-core desktop CPU

ryzen
It is the first processor for desktop systems with 64 cores inside and represents the fastest currently available on the market. However, it requires applications that are able to take advantage of the high number of cores present to give the best. It is therefore not for everyone, starting from the price: 3,999 dollars!

 

The Ryzen Threadripper family of processors debuted on the market with the first versions in the summer of 2017, representing a radical novelty compared to what AMD previously offered. For the first time, in fact, the American company has been able to offer a product intended specifically for the field of HEDT systems, High-End Desktop, putting itself in direct contrast with the range of Intel solutions of the Core-X series.

 

In the comparison between the two families of Intel and AMD HEDT CPUs, some differences immediately became clear: AMD aimed to offer a higher number of cores, clearly evident with the transition to the number of 32 in the debut of the second generation Ryzen Threadripper CPUs , while Intel has benefited from higher clock rates and superior single-core efficiency. The particular architecture of the first two generations of Ryzen Threadripper processor, borrowed directly from the EPYC proposals for datacenters, also represented a limit with those applications highly dependent on the latency of access to system memory.

 

However, everything has changed with the debut of the third generation of Ryzen Threadripper processors, based on Zen 2 architecture and built with 7 nanometer production technology, which took place last November. AMD presented two models, equipped with 24 and 32 core architecture respectively, anticipating the debut of a third version capable of offering 64 internal cores.

The Minister of Cultural Heritage and Activities, Dario Franceschini proposed the day for the commemoration of Dante and yesterday (17 January 2020) has been approved by the Council of Ministers. The day chosen is March 25, which is considered by many to be the day on which the long journey to the afterlife begins.

The proposal of the national day dedicated to Dante Alighieri as well as being the subject of several parliamentary acts had collected the adhesion of intellectuals and scholars and prestigious cultural institutions from the Accademia della Crusca, to the Società Dantesca, to the Dante Alighieri Society, to the Association of the Italianists to the Italian Society for the study of medieval thought.
These are the words of Minister Franceschini:

“Every year on March 25, the date that scholars recognize as the beginning of the journey into the afterlife of the Divine Comedy, Dantedi ‘will be celebrated. A day to remember Dante’s genius throughout Italy and throughout the world with many initiatives that will see a strong involvement of schools, students and cultural institutions ». «A year after the celebrations of the 700 years since Dante’s death – added Franceschini – there are already many projects under consideration by the Committee for the celebrations chaired by prof. Carlo Ossola. Dante – concluded Franceschini – remembers many things that hold us together: Dante is the unity of the country, Dante is the Italian language, Dante is the very idea of ​​Italy “.

The current situation (war) with Iran

Trump, Soleimani era il maggiore terrorista al mondo

What will happen in the next few days or months? This is the question that everyone is asking, especially after the reaction of the Asian markets following the American raid.

Because a possible war could destabilize world markets (and stock exchanges) by generating economic crises. The price of gold and oil have already gone up. And gold has reached its listing record since 2013.

Trump gave his word that as long as he is president of the United States, Iran will never have a nuclear weapon. This is in fact the reason for the current conflict.
General Soleimani killed by the drone was planning nuclear weapons as well as possible conflicts with other countries.

The united states are supported by many countries. Israel has said it will support Trump’s action as he considers Soleimani’s work bankrupt, having killed hundreds of innocents.

Instead, France has declared that it will not withdraw troops drom Iraq, where they currently reside, and where they explicitly support the United States.

It is always difficult to judge the action of the United States, which are often the judgments of the diplomatic balances of the world, but also and above all of peace in the world. Many believe that this conflict was triggered to overshadow the judicial problems of President Trump, who in recent weeks has suffered numerous accusations and impeachment for having illegally influenced Ukraine in the voting.

Others believe that the conflict was triggered also by economic interests, mainly due to that of oil. The truth is that the United States is always responsible for the balance of the world, but often by abusing its power, it chooses the timing and methods most suited to them.

 

Reform of Italian justice: the removal of the prescription of legal processes

kkk

The central point of the parliamentary debate of these months is the reform of justice which contains the removal of the prescription, which is currently foreseen for almost all trials, except those for massacres.

The prescription has been the debate of Italian justice for years, because many consider it as the remedy for the infinite length of some trials, which often last a lifetime for the accused. But others instead view it as a salvation for some criminals, often those wealthy people who can afford to pay the best lawyer who can drive the trial for decades.

This reform is mainly supported by the five star movement which is the creator and is supported by the PD, which is currently the coalition party together with the Five Star Movement.

The prescription in the other states exists only for specific and singular cases and that therefore for most of the processes cannot be implemented. In Italy, unfortunately, where the trial times are very long, this expedient was used which in reality had to be applied only in specific cases and which instead allowed many people to save themselves from very serious crimes, such as the mafia crime. and corruption.

Champions League round of 16 draw

EL55rLRXkAA9Jl1

On Monday 16th the draws for the Champions League knockout rounds took place in Nyon (Switzerland), in addition to those of the Europa League. For the champions there were some very interesting draws in terms of clashes between teams.

The most balanced matches are: Chelsea-Bayern, Atletico-Liverpool, RealMadrid-ManchesterCity, on which it is difficult to make a prediction.

Probably the team that had the most favorable (lucky) draw was Juventus who will play Lyon. Even Tottenham was lucky, meeting Leipzig, which on paper is perhaps even easier than Lyon. Barcelona will meet Napoli, which although it is a difficult team, is certainly not a big danger. The atalanta, the Italian team that for the first time arrived in the Champions League and even in the round of 16, will meet Valencia. This will be a very interesting game. In theory, Valencia is favored which, as is the case in Spanish tradition, will be very difficult, but it is not certain that it will win.

The favorite teams for the Champions League final victory are surely Manchester City and Barcelona. Real and Juve have a good chance, in addition to PSG. The other teams will have a hard life.
