Why Ravichandran Ashwin’s wife trolled Virender Sehwag on Twitter

first_imgIt’s not too often that we see Virender Sehwag getting trolled on Twitter and usually the former India opener’s hilarious tweets put his followers in splits.Just like he demolished his opponents with his bat on the cricket field, Sehwag bats the same way on Twitter too. However, today was one such rare occasion when Sehwag’s pun-intended tweet on Ravichandran Ashwin’s performance against New Zealand in the Indore Test boomeranged on him.In his latest tweet, Sehwag was stumped by the reply of Ashwin’s wife.Sehwag congratulated Ashwin for his seventh Man of the Series award after the Tamil Nadu tweaker finished with 27 wickets in the recently-concluded three-Test series. Ashwin also grabbed his career-best 7/59 and best-ever match haul of 13/140 as India completed a 3-0 series whitewash.”Congrats @ashwinravi99 for an incredible 7th Man of the series. Only a married man can understand d urgency of going home early. #FamilyTime,” Sehwag tweeted.While Ashwin’s reply was a mere “lol”, but that did not stop Prithi Ashwin and Aarti Sehwag from engaging in more family drama.Congrats @ashwinravi99 for an incredible 7th Man of the series.Only a married man can understand d urgency of going home early.#FamilyTime Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 11, 2016@virendersehwag lol..viru pa Ashwin Ravichandran (@ashwinravi99) October 11, 2016@ashwinravi99 @virendersehwag hahaha I didn’t do much 🙂 Prithi Ashwin (@prithinarayanan) October 11, 2016.@prithinarayanan Neither did I.

The Onion Chops Its Remaining Print Circulation Seriously

first_imgAfter 25 years, The Onion’s satirical newspaper will become 100 percent digital at the close of 2013. At its peak, the publication was circulated in 17 cities nationwide, however that had been whittled down to just three–Chicago, Milwaukee and Providence.”The Onion’s focus in recent years has been on growing the digital side of our business,” president, Mike McAvoy tells FOLIO: in an email. “While the print edition is an important part of our history, we are very excited for the opportunities that come with prioritizing digital for even greater company growth.”Advertising for the print publication had been waning for several years, and as CRAIN’s Chicago Business points out, the most recent Chicago issue only had two pages of print advertising, hailing from one source. However, the publication suggests that digital native ad buys are growing nicely. And The Onion claims its audience has never been bigger or more engaged–thanks to the affordances of digital technology, which gives editors the flexibility to produce timely content.”Since this transitional process began, we have seen our audience grow stronger than ever, and our unique visitors to The Onion and A.V. Club sites have increased by more than 200 percent since July 2012,” McAvoy says. “Our success has allowed us to invest in our Onion Labs creative services business and, in a short time, Labs has completed projects with brands such as Home Depot, Lenovo, 7-Up, 7-Eleven, Clorox, YouTube and DSW.” Although The Onion is exiting one platform, it is still expanding its multiplatform strategy–which includes an Amazon-exclusive TV series titled Onion News Empire. Still, after 25 years The Onion certainly has a large library of content assets, but when asked, the company declines to address whether it will continue to leverage its assets for premium print products like anthology books.

Incentives Used to Promote Renewable Energy Development Could Benefit Small Reactors Report

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Federal incentives to encourage private sector investment in the deployment of small modular reactors could generate a higher payoff than the government effort over the past decade to promote the use of renewable energy, according to a new Department of Energy report. Examination of Federal Financial Assistance in the Renewable Energy Market, co-authored by Kutak Rock and Scully Capital, estimates that $10 billion in incentives would be needed to deploy 6 gigawatts of small modular reactor capacity by 2035. The cost of such an investment on a per kilowatt hour basis would be only one-third as expensive as the federal government’s initiative to stimulate the development of solar plants and wind farms. From 2005-2015 the government provided $51.2 billion in mandates, tax incentives, loans and research grants to stimulate solar and wind production. About 90 percent of that investment came in the form of subsidies, which included investment and production tax credits. As a result, solar capacity grew by nearly 78,000 megawatts and wind capacity added more than 446,000 megawatts over that period.Photo by Idaho National Laboratorylast_img read more

Who is Norm Self The 85yearold retired clergymanturnedporn star

first_imgNorm SelfYoutube screengrabNorm Self, a priest from North Dakota, appeared in his first adult film at the ripe age of 85. The retired clergyman exchanged his crucifix for life in adult films and has no regrets as of yet. He made three more adult films in the past two years.Self joined the clergy at the age of 18 and after 28 years of marriage, he realised that he was gay.It all began in 1997 when Self was working as a campus minister and came across a group of gay men. It was then Self realised that he was gay, he told The Sun.Self’s first introduction to adult film happened when his housemates invited him to be part of one. He said, “My housemate asked me if I’d be in a film. I was invited in and all of a sudden all this attention comes to me. We are going to have sex anyway so why not make it a liberating and bonding experience instead of hiding it away in the shadows?”Describing his first experience, Self told HuffPost in 2018 that it was delightful. He said that his body was a temple where intimacy and ecstasy intermingled and was open to making more adult films.”It was splendid! How could it not be? (I was in) a blessed rural setting, surrounded by a cast and crew of loving, competent, supportive brothers intent on sharing the good news of the healing power of pleasure. What could be more delightful? And if you’ve seen the video, with the two adorable models “performing, what else could be lacking?” Self was quoted as saying by HuffPost.last_img read more

Friends Greys Anatomy Were Most BingeWatched TV Shows of 2018 Study Finds

first_img“Friends” — which last aired on broadcast TV 14 years ago — was the most binge-watched television show of 2018 thanks to the full run being on Netflix, according to a new study.The sitcom about twentysomething New Yorkers nabbed the highest share of binge sessions over the course of the year, according to TV Time, based on its analysis of the behavior of 12 million registered users worldwide of its app for tracking, commenting on and voting for television shows.The enduring popularity of “Friends” (corroborated by other third-party research) clearly motivated Netflix to re-license the show from Warner Bros. Television: It was set to roll off Netflix at the end of 2018, and after a social-media uproar the streamer announced a new deal to keep “Friends” on the service through at least another year. Netflix reportedly agreed to pay around $100 million to keep all 10 seasons following Rachel, Monica, Ross, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe available to customers in the U.S. and Canada. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses. Rapunzel, Mulan, Ariel,Tiana, Sleeping Beauty and Jasmine all got some love from the Disney stars.More VideosVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9Next UpJennifer Lopez Shares How She Became a Mogul04:350.5x1x1.25×1.5x2xLive00:0002:1502:15 Rank ShowNetwork/ServiceShare of Binge-Watching Popular on Variety 8.“Orange Is the New Black”Netflix1.19% 3.“13 Reasons Why”Netflix1.69% 5.“Riverdale”CW/Netflix1.68% 10.“Pretty Little Liars”Freeform/Netflix1.06% 9.“The Big Bang Theory”CBS1.16%center_img 1.“Friends”Netflix2.36% 4.“La Casa de Papel” (“Money Heist”)Netflix1.69% 2.“Grey’s Anatomy”ABC/Netflix/Hulu2.07% Source: TV Time 6.“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”Fox/NBC/Hulu1.40% 7.“The 100”CW/Netflix1.25% No. 2 on TV Time’s ranking was ABC’s long-running primetime drama “Grey’s Anatomy,” whose past seasons are available on Netflix. That was followed by Netflix’s controversial teen-suicide show “13 Reasons Why”; Spanish-language series “La Casa de Papel” (“Money Heist”), which premiered on Spain’s Antena 3 in 2017 before it was picked up by Netflix; and The CW’s “Riverdale” (the first two seasons of which also are on Netflix). TV Time defines a binge session as one in which a user watches at least four episodes of a show within a 24-hour period. For the annual report, bingeing patterns were calculated from Jan. 1-Dec. 13, 2018.But take these rankings with a really big grain of salt.For starters, the binge-watching data aggregated by TV Time is self-reported by users of the free app — it’s not a passive measurement service that tracks actual viewing behavior. In addition, the company says the app’s base of 12 million users skews young, comprising primarily people 18-34. TV Time’s business model is geared around selling data and analytics to networks, streaming providers, studios and others.Another important point: Popular shows on traditional broadcast and cable channels are likely to be underrepresented in TV Time’s binge-viewing data, because episodes of current seasons are released weekly. Fans of, say, “Game of Thrones” would be far less likely to stack up four or more episodes to watch in one sitting than, for example, people who were eagerly anticipating season 2 of “13 Reasons Why.” Note that CBS’s “Big Bang Theory,” one of the top ratings-getters on primetime television, came in No. 9 on the TV Time list.That said, here are TV Time’s rankings, for what they’re worth:Top 10 Binge-Watched Shows of 2018last_img read more
