If You Take Out Your Phone in a Movie Theater, I’m Going to Ask to Use It PSP Hacks

Almost every weekend this year, I’ve ended up at the movies. In a relentless news environment, it’s nice to head over to the local multiplex, plop down, and turn off the rest of the world for a couple of hours. Sadly, I’ve noticed a disturbing trend: Even there, before the greatest spectacle that Hollywood can provide, people can’t stay off their fucking phones.

At a recent showing of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, for instance, I watched a man come in halfway through the movie and immediately pull out his phone. As Keanu Reeves used everything from a library book to a goddamn horse to fight through one of the most violent ballets ever performed, this jabroni was browsing Reddit on a brightness setting I can only imagine is called “Hydrogen Bomb Test.”

And that’s not all! Just minutes later, a woman entered the theater actively talking on her phone. “Mm-hmm, yeah, okay. You don’t say? Well, I should really go,” she said. “I’m in a movie theater right now.” Yeah, no shit!

I wish I could say this was an isolated incident. In the last couple years, I’ve watched people become increasingly incapable of sitting through an entire movie without whipping out their phones. We’ve all paid upwards of 10 bucks to see this thing, but a significant percentage of the population can’t get to the end without reading that important text that says: “kk, c u later!”

If people were doing this discreetly, I wouldn’t mind. Unfortunately, this behavior is closely linked with a lack of basic knowledge about screen brightness. (Here’s a tip: Swipe down and pull the sun slider towards “I’m an oblivious jerk in a movie theater.”) An even more discreet way of checking your phone, by the way, is to take it outside.

Luckily for me, you, and anyone else who likes watching movies in the dark, I’ve come up with a solution: If you take out your phone in a movie theater, I’m going to ask to borrow it.

After all, it’s only fair. If what you’re looking at is so much more interesting than the movie we’ve all paid to see, the rest of us deserve a peek.

Is it a funny meme? If it’s so funny, let me check it out, too! I might even share it with my other seat neighbor, who shouldn’t be left out of the fun.

Naturally, anyone will be free to decline my request, but as long as your phone is out, I’ll be asking. Just let me borrow it, man, c’mon! And when I’m done, I’ll turn the brightness setting down, leaving it a bit less eye-catching.

Strangely, since committing myself to this course of action, I haven’t had the chance to try it. At the last few movies I’ve been to, no one has taken out their phones. Maybe other moviegoers can sense my newfound interest in their screens. Maybe they’ve rediscovered the magic of film. Maybe they just haven’t been annoying dicks.

Either way, I suggest you try it out yourself. At the very least, you’ll no longer worry about having your movie experience interrupted. When I head off to the movies these days, I look forward to the interesting emails I might read, the texts I might see, and the funny memes that—if they’re worth looking at, at all—deserved to be shared.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Treated for Tumor on Her Pancreas PSP Hacks

U.S.|Ruth Bader Ginsburg Treated for Tumor on Her Pancreas

The Supreme Court justice’s treatment lasted three weeks, according to a news release on Friday.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent treatment for a malignant tumor discovered on her pancreas, according to a news release issued by the Supreme Court on Friday.

“The tumor was treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body,” the statement said.

The abnormality was first discovered in early July after a routine blood test, according to the statement. A biopsy conducted on July 31 at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City confirmed a localized malignant tumor.

“Justice Ginsburg will continue to have periodic blood tests and scans,” the statement said. “No further treatment is needed at this time.”

The health of the 86-year-old justice, the senior member of the court’s four-member liberal wing, has been a subject of concern.

In December, surgeons removed two malignant nodules from Justice Ginsburg’s left lung. The court described that surgery as successful, and said then that she was cancer free. After missing two weeks of arguments in January, she returned to work in February.

Justice Ginsburg also had surgery in 2009 for early-stage pancreatic cancer.

She was also treated for colon cancer in 1999, but she did not miss a day on the bench.

Justice Ginsberg’s career as the second female justice appointed to the Supreme Court, and her overall fortitude, have inspired books (“Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg”), a major motion picture, a documentary and merchandise, including a pin resembling the collar she wears when writing a dissenting opinion.

Justice Ginsburg has repeatedly vowed to stay on the court as long she is of sound mind and body. In a 2013 interview with The New York Times, she said she loved her work and intended to continue “as long as I can do the job full-steam, and that, at my age, is not predictable.”

Pancreatic cancer accounts for about 3 percent of all cancers in the U.S., and about 7 percent of all cancer deaths.

Some 56,770 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2019; about 45,750 will die of it, according to the American Cancer Society.

For three weeks this August, Justice Ginsberg underwent focused radiation treatment, and a bile duct stent was placed, according to the court’s statement.

Dr. Diane Simeone, director of pancreatic cancer at NYU Langone’s Perlmutter Cancer Center, said the preferred treatment for a localized tumor is surgery to remove it, but said she was not familiar with the details of this particular case. Radiation “is not typically given as first-line treatment for a newly diagnosed pancreatic cancer,” she said.

“The question is: Where does this fit in the big picture?” Dr. Simeone said. “She had a pancreatic cancer resectioned about a decade ago. Is this a second primary tumor? Is this a local recurrence? Those are things that are unclear from the information we have today.”

Though pancreatic cancer has a reputation as an aggressive and fast-moving disease, Dr. Simeone said some subtypes are indolent and slow-growing. Some of them have a tendency to spread to the lungs and might have been implicated in the justice’s lung cancer.

“It’s hard to know the prognosis without knowing the true extent of the tumor,” she said. Radiation can be effective for local control but “it’s often not curative,” she said.

Other justices have had cancer while serving on the bench. In 1992, Justice John Paul Stevens underwent radiation treatment for prostate cancer. Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist’s thyroid cancer was diagnosed 11 months before his death in September 2005.

Aside from canceling an annual visit to Santa Fe, New Mexico, Justice Ginsburg has otherwise maintained an active schedule this summer, the statement said. The State University of New York at Buffalo said in a statement on Friday that it had received confirmation that she would visit on Monday as scheduled.

Last month, in an interview with NPR, Justice Ginsberg dismissed concerns about her health by recalling a long-ago comment from a senator.

“There was a senator, I think it was after my pancreatic cancer, who announced with great glee that I was going to be dead within six months,” she said. “That senator, whose name I have forgotten, is now himself dead, and I am very much alive.”

You Should Increase Your Retirement Contribution, Like, Now PSP Hacks

There’s good news for Americans saving for retirement: We’re getting better and better at actually doing it, according to a new survey from Bankrate.com. The percentage of people who have increased their contributions in the past year has almost doubled since 2011, with 29% increasing their contributions. Forty-six percent of respondents said they’re saving the same amount as last year.

Older millennials (age 30-38), in particular, were the demographic most likely to have increased their savings rate. “They’ve got their student debt paid off, or they’ve bought that first house, or they’ve gotten that promotion that pays more, and they’re thinking downstream” more than the earlier years of their careers, Greg McBride, chief financial analyst at Bankrate.com, said. The survey had 2,016 respondents.

You really should “get around to” adjusting your contribution

Here’s the not-so-inspiring news: 16% of people are saving less for retirement than they did last year. Many of the respondents cited other financial goals, but 12% said they simply had not “gotten around to” adjusting their contribution. Young millennials, McBride said, were the worst offenders among respondents who had let the task slide to the bottom of their to-do lists.

But young people have the most to lose by not keeping an eye on their contribution, he warned. “Because of the power of compounding interest, time is your greatest ally when saving for retirement,” McBride said. “And so there’s an urgency to contribute sooner rather than later.”

Steady progress wins this marathon, and even if you can increase your contribution by 1% this year, it’ll benefit your long-term financial health.“If you’re working and drawing a paycheck, you want to keep having that money automatically put into your retirement account,” McBride said.

But uh, about that economic forecast? Things aren’t looking so optimistic out there, but that’s no reason to start messing with your allocations when you log in to check on your contribution levels. “The biggest risk for retirement savers is getting the jitters from market volatility, and shifting the way your retirement savings is invested,” McBride said. “Volatility can actually work in your favor over the long term.”

Attempted abduction


| Story:
262922

Photo: Contributed

Fort St John RCMP are investigating the attempted abduction of a road flagger that is alleged to have occurred on August 4th 2019 at approximately 9:30 a.m.

RCMP have learned that a dark blue van with silver striping approached a road flagger on


Highway 29 near Szoo Rd, approximately 27 kms south-west of Charlie Lake. The van came to a stop near the female flagger who was alone at the time and a caucasian male opened the van’s rear doors and attempted to pull the woman inside. The flagger struggled with the unknown male, who eventually got back in the van and took off toward Hudson’s Hope B.C. The victim did not recognize the person who tried to abduct her.

RCMP members have launched a full-scale investigation and are currently canvassing neighboring properties to speak with witnesses. They are also calling for any video surveillance that may be out there.

The vehicle is described as:

  • dark blue with silver striping
  • chrome on the front grille
  • barn style rear doors

The suspect is described as;

  • caucasian male
  • approximately 5’9
  • no accent when he spoke

‘We’re asking for anyone who was in the Charlie Lake area to try to remember if they saw a vehicle matching this description to call the RCMP’ says Sgt Joelle LaChance, A/Operations NCO of the Fort St John RCMP. ‘Your dash cam footage may be able to help us identify the suspect in this crime’.


The Ft St John RCMP are asking anyone who may have been in this area at the time of this incident and may recognize this van, the suspect or have dashcam video footage to contact the Ft St John RCMP at 250-787-8140.

Check to See if Robinhood Exposed Your Password PSP Hacks

Illustration for article titled Check to See if Robinhood Exposed Your Password

Bad news, money-makers. The popular stock-trading app Robinhood recently sent emails to an undisclosed number of users, letting them know that the company made a bit of a boo-boo and stored their passwords on its servers in plaintext.

While you probably get a number of emails from your various financial institutions, and probably filter Robinhood’s to a folder (or trash) if you’re a fairly active trader, you’re definitely going to want to comb through your email app or web-based service to see if you’ve been affected by this issue.

Even if you haven’t, or are too lazy to look, changing your password on the service is easy. Pull up the app and use the “reset password” link on the login page, or visit this link on the web.

Once you’ve done that, make sure you’ve set up two-factor authentication on your account so you’re a bit more protected even if someone has managed to decipher your password. I almost feel like I don’t even need to tell you that, because it would be the absolute worst practice in the world to only have a simple password protecting a financial app like the one you use to buy and sell stocks.

Even though Robinhood has a verification system in place that alerts you via text message or email whenever there’s a new login attempt for your account, you absolutely should use every security measure you can get your hands on for your financial services. This is not an area where you want to be lazy about your account security, because the consequences could be disastrous—even more so than when your favorite stock pick tanks.

As for Robinhood’s plaintext problem, the company maintains that no third-party used them to access user accounts. That’s reassuring news, even though you should still be a little upset about the company’s gaffe. As they wrote in an email to affected users:

“When you set a password for your Robinhood account, we use an industry-standard process that prevents anyone at our company from reading it. On Monday night, we discovered that some user credentials were stored in a readable format within our internal systems. We wanted to let you know that your password may have been included.

We resolved this issue, and after thorough review, found no evidence that this information was accessed by anyone outside of our response team. Out of an abundance of caution, we still recommend that you change your Robinhood password.”

And, of course, please don’t use a new password for Robinhood that you use for other services around the web. You’re better than that.

The Roku Channel is adding a kids and family section with free TV shows and movies PSP Hacks

The Roku Channel currently offers a mix of free-to-watch, ad-supported movies, TV shows, and live news. You can also purchase subscriptions to HBO, Showtime, Starz, Epix, and other networks through the Roku Channel instead of subscribing to each of those streaming apps separately. Beginning today, the company is adding a new section to the Roku Channel that’s focused on kid and family content.

The Kids and Family area is available now in the US on Roku streaming players, Roku TVs, on the web, and on select Samsung smart TVs. It includes a curated mix of shows that are grouped into different age ranges so that it’s easy to find something appropriate when trying to entertain a child. Roku says that it provides “a unique blend of quality shows, movies, live linear and short-form video typically found across multiple free and paid kids channels and brings them together to watch in a single place.” Everything is chosen by an in-house editorial team, so one would hope nothing too weird or creepy will slip through.

Everyone will be able to stream a family-friendly mix of TV shows and movies at no extra charge. In total, Roku says it’s including “7,000 free, ad-supported movies and TV episodes” from partners including All Spark, A Hasbro Company, DHX Media, Happy Kids TV, Lionsgate, Mattel, Moonbug, and pocket.watch, among others.”

But customers who subscribe to Noggin, Hopster, or even HBO or Starz will see kid-appropriate content from those networks featured in this new section as well. Roku explained to me that this will only happen if you subscribe to those channels through the Roku Channel. So if you’re paying for HBO elsewhere, Sesame Street won’t show up in the Roku Channel’s kids and family portal. Make sense?

Roku notes that although the new section is ad-supported, it’ll see 40 percent less ad volume compared to regular Roku Channel content, which the company claims is already below cable TV averages. Like the TV shows and movies you can stream, ads will also be screened to ensure kids aren’t seeing anything they shouldn’t.
