Game of Thrones Jorah Mormont to play Bruce Wayne on Titans

first_img Angela Lang/CNET I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner!

Needing to reconcile his relationship with Dick Grayson, the duo hope to forge a new dynamic as Bruce tries to help his former sidekick and the Titans achieve success.”Originally published 11:48 a.m. PT. Update, 12:46 p.m. PT: Adds statement from executive producers.

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales.

Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30.

Muhith sees 100pc chance of ALs return to power

first_imgFiance minister AMA Muhith holds a pre-budget discussion with Economic Reporters Forum (ERF) at his office in Bangladesh Secretariat on Wednesday. Photo: Prothom AloSet to place the last budget of the present government next month, finance minister Abul Maal Abdul Muhith on Wednesday said teachers of more educational institutions will be covered by official pay roll in the next year.One who earlier rejected possibility of bringing any more private school and college teachers under what is officially called monthly pay order (MPO) facility, Muhith is going to make the shift only a few months before the scheduled general elections.He, however, said the MPOs, which were plagued by criticism of politicisation, would not be targeted to the teacher but to the institutions with certain conditions imposed by his ministry.“MPO will be given to some institutions but it is not the education but the finance ministry which will decide on the terms and conditions,” said the minister at a pre-budget discussion with Economic Reporters Forum (ERF) at his office in Bangladesh Secretariat.Muhith also expressed confidence that his Awami League party’s chance of returning to power through the next election is 100 per cent.“If voted to power again, it is going to devolve power, to take decisions on preparing budget by the local government authorities,” he said citing examples of many countries where local governments are more powerful.The finance minister expressed his confidence that rate of poor people in the country would come down to 10 per cent by the year 2024, the year after the likely election to the 12th parliamentHe reiterated that the government is going to lower the corporate tax, which is now up to 45 per cent of net income, in the next (2018-19) budget.The finance minister is likely to place in parliament his 10th consecutive budget on 7 June and it is expected to be passed by parliament on 30 June.Asked about the budgetary opportunity of whitening black money, Muhith insisted that the law is there to allow legalising untaxed money giving certain percentage as penalty and tax.About tax that increases prices of consumer items, the minister gave his opinion in favour of no duty protection to local sugar mills. “Duty on sugar is given for protecting 150,000 workers of nationalised sugar mills, but they must be allowed to die,” he added.Improving quality of education and healthcare services, introducing bus for schoolchildren, preventing rising cost of living in cities, bringing middle class and industrial workers under social protection schemes, and addressing banking sector crisis are some of the suggestions that came from the journalists.ERF president Saiful Islam Dilal, its former presidents Monowar Hossain, Zakaria Kajal, Khawaza Main Uddin and Sultan Mahmud, ERF vice president Salahuddin Bablu, former ERF general secretary Abu Kawser and ERF acting general secretary Rizvy Newaz, among others, joined the discussion.last_img read more
