Rolling Stone’s old list of ‘100 greatest singers’ resurfaces, sparking new controversy

Rolling Stone Magazine on the shelves of Barnes & Noble in Staten Island. (Staten Island Advance/ Victoria Priola STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The social media pot was stirred Monday afternoon, thanks to Twitter account Classic Rock in Pics. The account posted a screenshot of Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Singers of All Time” list, which garnered thousands of views within hours. However, Classic Rock in Pics failed to disclose that the list was first published on Dec. 31, 2010. Needless to say, the 2019 Twitterverse had opinions about the placement of music legends like Stevie Nicks, Elvis Presley and Whitney Houston. The list also censored Joe Cocker’s name, posting it as Joe ****er — a move that became meme-worthy. Rolling Stone Magazine list of Top 100 Singers of All Time. Thoughts?https://t.co/nq2WAOnUsq pic.twitter.com/JnGCBgd5CO Christina Aguilera, a Staten Island native, was included at No. 58 — in between Eric Burdon and Rod Stewart. Readers did not appear to argue over the “Genie in a Bottle” and “Beautiful” singer’s place. Bob Dylan wasn’t as lucky. His name was trending on Twitter shortly after the outdated list went viral because fans were unhapp...

Мифы цензуры: почему критика власти выживает в китайском интернете

Команда исследователей из Гарварда организовала настоящую диверсионную кампанию для ответа на вопрос, что же на самом деле волнует китайских цензоров. Во-первых, ученые скачали огромное количество постов в социальных сетях и следили за их дальнейшей судьбой (были ли они удалены или нет). Во-вторых, они зарегистрировали множество аккаунтов в китайских социальных сетях и публиковали посты с самым разным содержанием. В-третьих, они создали в Китае свою социальную сеть, следуя всем формальностям. В результате получилась статья под названием «Как цензура в Китае закрывает глаза на критику правительства, но препятствует коллективному выражению мнения» («How Censorship in China Allows Government Criticism but Silences Collective Expression»). Исследователи выяснили, что критика правительства, в особенности региональных чиновников, практически не увеличивает вероятность удаления поста цензорами. А вот публикации, содержащие призывы к выходу на улицы или намек на это, подвергаются систематической цензуре. При этом совершенно не важно, призывает автор поста организовать шествие в поддержку государства или хочет собрать оппозиционно настроенных граждан. Иными словами, государство не боится...

Auto Review: 2019 Nissan LEAF • Exhaust Notes Australia

THIS journalist has never had his future read or seen a clairvoyant, never had the interest or inclination to. But after experiencing the 2019 Nissan LEAF, I have seen into the future of motoring, and it has markedly changed my opinion. Sure, I’d had experience with hybrids, and happily acknowledge the benefits of such an arrangement. But having been a self-professed pessimist regarding a possible full electric future, I took my first taste of an all-electric vehicle, and have to say I’ve been converted. Stepping into the LEAF feels like any other ordinary car. It’s like your climbing into a new version of the Pulsar, but not quite. The interior is luxurious, with nicely appointed leather spread through the cabin with some ‘eco blue’ accents and stitching. There is no gear lever, rather a drive selector knob which operates by sliding towards your desired gear and then springing back into place. Push the glowing blue start button however and, there is almost silence as the LEAF starts. You hear a few whirring noises and the digital dash sparks to life with a Nissan Zero Emission animation. Setting off for the first time is an unnerving experience, accompanied by an eerie noiseles...

5 Ways the Latest HVAC Solutions Offer a Perfect Fit for Modular Buildings | 2017-10-02

Modular construction is changing the way the world builds. For residential and commercial projects, modular offers plenty of advantages, from speed, quality control and cost-saving advantages to design flexibility. Because modular buildings are constructed in sections and then transported to be assembled onsite, it increases efficiency by streamlining the building process. Yet finding the right products and systems that can be easily integrated during the construction process is a challenge for many modular builders. HVAC manufacturers are responding with smart, efficient solutions to meet the short and long-term needs of modular builders and owners alike. These solutions include single package vertical HVAC systems that incorporate “in-closet” design and can be installed as part of the modular assembly process, increasing efficiency while delivering great performance. More modular builders are choosing single package vertical systems because they are compact, reliable and offer customizable climate control along with many other advantages, including: In modular construction, maximizing space and ensuring nothing interferes with the beautiful design of a building’s interior or ...

Virginia-based Potomac Metals Inc. invested in wire chopping technology to improve its wire processing capabilities.

Virginia-based Potomac Metals Inc. invested in wire chopping technology to improve its wire processing capabilities. The system arrived in four metal export containers. It wasn’t necessary to remove anything because the equipment inside was preconfigured. All workers had to do was bolt the containers together. For something so simple and ready-to-go, Cable Box—a wire chopper manufactured by MTB—has opened new markets for Potomac Metals Inc., a private scrap metal recycling company headquartered in Sterling, Virginia. Potomac Metals bought its Cable Box toward the end of 2017 through Buffalo, New York-based Wendt Corp., a supplier and integrator of scrap metal processing equipment. The system, up and running by February 2018, has allowed Potomac to make clean chops of No. 1 insulated copper wire (ICW) and insulated aluminum wire and to separate the wire from its plastic covering. The company had never chopped wire before adding the Cable Box. According to Wendt, the MTB Cable Box can manage other hard-to-process wire and materials, including ICW from auto shredder residue (ASR); aluminum conductor steel-reinforced (ACSR) cable, BX (flexible metal conduit), underground residential...

Grouse hunters should expect success in peak year | Columnists

A male ruffed grouse holds court on his drumming log in May 2017 in Beltrami Island State Forest. The Minnesota grouse season continues until the end of the year. A male ruffed grouse holds court on his drumming log in May 2017 in Beltrami Island State Forest. The Minnesota grouse season continues until the end of the year. Up until this week, my efforts to bag some birds has been more of a side note to my more pressing goal of scouting back forties for deer sign and some new places to throw up stands. The shotgun has been in hand during these off-road adventures, but my focus has been choke points and well-worn trails. Of course, since I haven’t been focused on spying the little guys and gals before they spy me I’ve been startled half to death at least a dozen times over the past two weeks as I’ve flushed birds from their hiding spots. Up until this week, the leaves and foliage were pretty thick still in the woods so I never did get a shot off but the fact that I’ve had so much action so early in the season has me pumped up for the next few week as I get serious about chasing my second-favorite game. Actually, grouse hunting might be my favorite hunting season (don’t tell the d...
