From Making Matcha to Tie-Dye, Here Are 10 Things We’ve Learned To Do During Quarantine

Click here to read the full article.

Let’s face it: we have a lot of time on our hands right now. Even if you are working from home these days, there’s only so much screen-time you can take before your eyes start to droop and your fingers get fidgety. Same goes for checking social media: doing a live IG workout is fine, but posting TikTok dances as a full-grown adult? Save your moves for something more productive.

Being stuck indoors isn’t ideal, but if you’re going to be quarantined, you might as well make the most of it. We’ve rounded up ten new things to try from the confines — and comforts — of home. From swapping coffee for Japanese matcha, to taking up a new instrument, there are a ton of easy ways to learn a new hobby or habit online.

Schools Can’t Reopen Safely Without A Lot More Money. Congress Is Running Out Of Time.

WASHINGTON ― In a matter of weeks, millions of children will head back to school in the middle of a pandemic, leaving millions more parents filled with anxiety about risking their child’s health ― not to mention school staff ― to get an education.

Public schools cannot safely reopen without a massive infusion of emergency funding from Congress, which is already dangerously late to this. Think of all the things a single school needs: Hand sanitizers and disinfectant wipes for classrooms. No-touch thermometers. Regular deep cleanings, which means hiring more custodial staff. Ensuring that every school has at least one full-time nurse (25% of schools have no nurse at all). Someone on every school bus to screen kids’ temperatures before boarding. Gloves and masks for staff. Masks for students who don’t bring one from home. Resuming before- and after-school child care programs with new cleaning protocols.

That doesn’t even factor

Beth and Mike live with their 17-year0old son, Mac, two cats and a goldfish. She, a fourth-generation Newporter, is running for an at-large seat on the City Council, while he, who holds a master’s in Business Administration from Harvard, is running for the School Committee.

Campaign website:

Why are you seeking elective office?

Newport is at a tipping point. I’ve chosen to run for Newport city council at-large. My husband Mike is running for the Newport school committee. We’ve been watching those over-sized, out-of-scale hotels go up on our historic waterfront, at the same time, we’ve been observing the highly skewed Rogers high school planning process take place. We can see that Newport is in a dire position; it’s standing at the precipice. Our character

How to convert VHS to DVD, Blu-ray, or digital

Memories have a lifespan. That’s why we do our best to capture the most precious moments, from births to graduations, through photo and video. In terms of aging, old photos are pretty easy to digitize. Scan, upload, and store on your computer, thumb drive, or the cloud. On the other hand, digitizing old video can be a bit more challenging, at least when it comes to footage captured on the all-but-dead medium called Video Home System, aka VHS.

The format was never intended to last forever and degrades over time. If your precious home videos managed to survive thus far, you may want to salvage the footage before time takes its toll. Converting well-worn videos will never be flawless — the slightest hiccup can interrupt the transfer signal — but it can be done on a modest budget with a few basic tools.

Below, we’ll show you how to save

3 Hot Tech Stocks to Buy After Solid Earnings

Tech sector earnings are entering their heaviest period and there’s sure to be much to say about them. One thing’s for sure, this should be a big quarter for many players because a truly large number of companies have benefited from the pandemic-induced changes in behavior. In this blog, I’ve highlighted results for three companies and said why these stocks are worth picking up-

The best accessories for your new iPad

If you plan to be a “pro” user of an iPad Pro, you’ll probably need more than the tablet’s single USB-C port. Apple has provided little guidance to which USB-C hubs and adapters work best with the iPad Pros — there’s no MFi certification for accessories like this yet. Some hubs specifically advertise that they work with the newest iPad Pros, and if you want to be really safe, I’d recommend buying one of those that comes from a reputable brand.

One of the most popular in that category is HyperDrive’s USB-C adapter. I’ll admit I was skeptical about this one, mostly because so many Amazon reviewers and YouTube personalities have raved about it (and I have a hard time believing a 6-port adapter the size of a lighter should cost $90). However, after testing it out, I can say it delivers on its promises: it’s a neat little adapter

Summer Activities, Rules To Know About: Mayor

Written by Mayor Mary Marvin:

BRONXVILLE, NY — Given the time of year and the recent spate of incredibly warm weather, there is no denying that summer is truly here, making a column about summer activities truly apropos.

The Village tennis program is up and running. Applications may be printed off of the Village website and either mailed to Village Hall or delivered in person between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays. As the Covid crisis is still very much with us, all play must have an online booking and maximum play time is one hour 45 minutes to allow time for sanitizing. The bathrooms and water fountain remain closed and masks are required to be worn to and from the tennis courts. The Bronxville School track is also re-opened for exercise.

While we were unable to have a summer paddle program, we are opening up the Fall/Winter program early.

Click here to read the full article.

The Montreal-set Just for Laughs Festival is going virtual for its 2020 edition this fall, setting a two-day online event for the annual A-list comedy showcase for October 9-10.
