At $59, this is within a buck of the best price we’ve seen. It lists for $129 and sells elsewhere in the $89-to-$99 range.This is one item of many available as part of eBay’s Labor Day Sale (which, at this writing, doesn’t specifically mention Labor Day, but that’s how it was pitched to us). Read DJI Osmo Action preview $261 at Daily Steals via Google Express See It Lowe’s,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. 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. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running.

At $250, the compact Rylo dual-lens camera is selling for its lowest price yet. And for an extra $50, you can get the bundle that includes the waterproof housing.This deal runs through Sept. 3; it usually costs $500. Turo: Save $30 on any car rental Read the Rylo camera preview Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). 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. Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand. It’s a little smaller than the Amazon Echo Show 5, but also a full $30 less (and tied with Prime Day pricing) during this Best Buy Labor Day sale. 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. 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!

The Hubitat Elevation is a smart home hub that processes most automations locally to keep your information private. With fully customizable rules and scenes, it already served as a viable alternative for Lowe’s Iris customers looking for a new hub, because it worked with certain second- and third-generation Iris sensors. Now, with the Iris cloud and services days away from shutting down, Hubitat is announcing support for first-gen Iris sensors, too. According to the company’s press release, Hubitat’s lead engineer has found a way to connect with those first-generation Iris devices. The rub is that Hubitat still doesn’t have an app, meaning you have to control and program the system from a web browser. That said, an app is supposedly in the works, to be released this summer. As for the system itself, it’s highly customizable, with an interface that’s clearly aimed at avid DIY-ers. We haven’t tested Hubitat’s hub just yet, but in the meantime, you can currently buy it at a promotional price of $100 from the company’s website, which is $50 off the normal price. 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. $59 at eBay Rylo See at Turo See It Sarah Tew/CNET Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity.

Seattle Seahawks offensive linemen Joey Hunt and Jordan Roos visited the Lulu Herron Elders Home on July 11, 2018. (Photo by Aleina Tanabe/KYUK)Professional football players embarked on a whirlwind tour of Bethel on Wednesday. Seattle Seahawks offensive linemen Joey Hunt and Jordan Roos were in town for a grand total of nine hours and got a crash course in Yup’ik culture.Listen nowElder Mary Nanuwak gave the linemen a Ziploc bag of fry bread on Wednesday afternoon, during their tour of the Lulu Herron Elders home.“You can top them with whatever you want,” Nanuwak said.Nanuwak also gave them a hand-knit hat and scarf to wear on the sidelines between plays.Hunt and Roos flew to Bethel to promote health and wellness in the community and learn about Yup’ik culture. At Lulu Herron, the Seattle football pros autographed posters and took pictures with Bethel’s elders. They were so much taller than some of their fans that they occasionally had to crouch to fit in the frame.“They say Bethel’s true Alaska,” Hunt said. “This is what we wanted to see, so we’re excited to be here.”This is Hunt and Roos’s first trip to Alaska. The offensive linemen were particularly excited to visit local families’ fish camps outside of town.“Just getting across there on the boat; we were just hauling it across that water,” Roos said. “It was awesome and the fish smelled amazing.”Roos and Hunt also toured Bethel’s hospital with State Representative Tiffany Zulkosky and played games with local kids at 4-H. They said they were excited to learn about Yup’ik culture. Some elders, like Gloria Anvil, may not watch too much pro football, but they can still get pretty excited to meet a player.“I’m glad they stopped by here,” Anvil said. “Thank you.”You can watch Jordan Roos and Joey Hunt, and maybe Mary Nanuwak’s hat and scarf, in action against the Indianapolis Colts in the Seahawks’ first preseason game on August 9.
IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan VarthamanWhile it is illegal for a member of the Indian Air Force to openly express support for a particular political party, a post has been making rounds on social media of Indian Air Force Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman snapped on camera with a saffron scarf.ClaimsThe post, which was initially uploaded on Facebook by a page known as “Namo Best PM of India”, showed a man with sunglasses and the trademark Abhinandan Varthaman moustache with an image caption saying that he voted for Prime Minister Narendra Modi. FacebookThe caption was written in Hindi and said that Abhinandan is supporting the BJP and has said that no one can make a better PM than Modi. In addition to this, the caption also asked to send this message to “Jihadis and Congress”. Verification of factsOne of the main facts which prove that the image is fake is that Abhinandan is from Tamil Nadu. Hence, he will be in the Tamil Nadu to cast his vote and the state will be going to polls only on April 18. The man in the picture is seen to have already voted.The Manual of the Air Force Law states, “no person subject to the Act shall attend, address, or take active part in, any meeting or demonstration held for party or political purposes, or belong to or join, or subscribe in aid of, any political association or movement.”The Act also states that a member of the IAF cannot be endorsed by a political party nor can he publicly be announced as a prospective candidate for elections, be it to the state legislative assembly, local body, the Parliament, or even be part of the election campaign of a candidate. The person can also not call out or condemn a candidate.Hence, it is impossible for Abhinandan to be vocal of his political leanings.When it comes to the physical features of the person in the image and the Wing Commander, there are stark differences which prove that the man in the photo is not Abhinandan. People hold placards and photographs of Indian Air Force pilot Abhinandan Varthaman, as they celebrate the announcement of his soon release, in Amritsar on February 28, 2019.NARINDER NANU/AFP/Getty ImagesIn a detailed report by AltNews, it can be seen that the man in the image has a mole under his right eye while Abhinandan does not. In addition to this, Abhinandan has a mole on his chin and the man in the image does not have a mole there.VerdictAfter careful consideration of the IAF rules as well as the physical feature of the Wing Commander and the man in the image, it can be proven that the man is not Abhinandan and that it is some other person posing as the IAF hero.

β Cep stars are massive, non-supergiant variable stars with spectral type O or B, showcasing variations in photometric, radial velocity, and line profile due to low-order pressure and gravity mode pulsations. Observations show that most stars of this class are of early B-type with masses ranging from 8.0 to 17 solar masses, characterized by their relatively high-frequency pulsations (typically between two to seven hours).β Cep stars are perceived as natural laboratories to conduct seismological studies of the interiors of massive stars. Such studies could be crucial in advancing knowledge about the evolution and structure of massive stars. However, given that the list of known β Cep stars is still relatively short, any new detection of a star of this class is of high importance for astronomers.Now, a team of researchers led by Jonathan Labadie-Bartz of University of São Paulo, Brazil, reports the finding of dozens of new stars of this type. The detection was made as part of the KELT exoplanet survey. As a result, the astronomers identified 113 β Cep stars, and 86 objects of this sample turned out to be new discoveries.”We conducted the search by performing a frequency analysis on the optical light curves of known O- and B-type stars with data from the KELT exoplanet survey,” the paper reads.As noted in the paper, the team’s primary goal was to conduct a periodicity analysis of light curves from the KELT survey for O- and B-type stars. Besides the detection of 86 new β Cep pulsators, the astronomers also identified a further number of 96 stars as β Cep candidates. This group likely contains a mix of genuine β Cep stars, plus other O-type and B-type variable stars.On the list of 113 β Cep stars observed by Labadie-Bartz’s team are five new eclipsing binaries and 22 stars with equal frequency spacings, which could be indicative of a rotational splitting of non-radial pulsation modes. Moreover, the average number of pulsation modes detected per star in the sample turned out to be 3.14. This value is higher when compared to other studies reporting new β Cep stars. In addition, the researchers found unusual light curve shapes for some of the identified β Cep stars that are difficult to explain at the moment. Therefore, the scientists propose to perform time-resolved spectroscopy of these stars in order to unveil their true nature.In concluding remarks, the authors of the paper underlined the significance of their discovery, noting that it means a 70 percent increase over the currently known sample of galactic β Cep stars. They added that the newly found stars, together with β Cep stars identified by previous studies, will be a target for observations with NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), which could shed more light on the structure and evolution of massive stars in general.”The high-quality TESS light curves will then be used to perform asteroseismic studies on this population, which will reveal valuable information about the interior structure and evolution of massive stars,” the researchers concluded.

Further complicating the cemetery’s fate is that not all who are buried here died in the Korean War. Also among the forlorn graves are the bodies of nearly 30 North Korean commandos who unsuccessfully stormed South Korea’s presidential palace in 1968, as well as a North Korean agent who killed himself after planting a bomb that killed 115 people aboard a South Korean jetliner in 1987.Neither Pyongyang nor Beijing has shown interest in taking back the remains of their nationals or trying to identify them.In a written response Thursday to an AP request for comment, the Chinese Civil Affairs ministry said it “will closely monitor the conditions of overseas facilities for Chinese martyrs and will collaborate with related departments on relevant efforts.” It made no direct reference to the South Korean cemetery.Pyongyang hasn’t commented on the cemetery, and when Seoul asked it to retrieve its troops’ remains in the 1980s, North Korea accepted only the ashes of dozens of Chinese soldiers.Lee Chang-hyung, an analyst at Seoul’s government-affiliated Korea Institute for Defense Analyses, said the South should fix up the Chinese graves and leave the North Korean markers until ties between the Koreas improve. The two Koreas remain bitter enemies. China, however, has become one of Seoul’s most important economic partners and a significant source of tourists. But those interested in visiting the graves of their countrymen who fought in the 1950-53 conflict may have a hard time even finding it. There is no parking lot, no signs on the main road; those who do make it are often saddened by what they see.“My fellow countrymen were left in the wild by themselves. So lonely,” said Huang Zhun, son of a Chinese Korean War veteran who survived. Huang, a businessman in east China’s Hangzhou city, visited the cemetery last year to honor the dead.Last year, more than 2 million tourists visited South Korea from China, which established diplomatic ties with Seoul in 1992 and has been its biggest trading partner since 2004. South Korean records estimate nearly 150,000 Chinese troops died in the Korean War, while China says 116,000.Inspired by visiting Chinese, local officials have reviewed plans to renovate the cemetery. But the bitter feelings most South Koreans have toward their northern neighbors remains a seemingly insurmountable obstacle.“How can we sympathize with people who aimed their guns at us?” said Won Bok-gi, an 82-year-old Korean War veteran. “I absolutely oppose such a move. … We should destroy such a place.” Associated PressPAJU, South Korea (AP) – Just south of the Demilitarized Zone, hundreds of identical wooden grave markers poke from a grassy hill surrounded by rice paddies and trees. Some markers are rotting; others have been knocked to the dirt; most have no names.Here, within sight of the North’s dark mountains, is South Korea’s badly neglected “enemy cemetery,” final resting place for Chinese and North Koreans, most of them killed in the Korean War that ended with an armistice agreement 59 years ago Friday. “We need to make a good use of the cemetery,” he said, “for the development of our military and diplomatic relations with China.”___Tang reported from Beijing.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Sponsored Stories Some South Koreans want to do more. Local resident Kim Dong-hun is pushing for private development of the cemetery, hoping it could increase tourism and also be a site of pilgrimage for the Chinese.Mukgai, a South Korean who goes by his Buddhist name and plans to soon become a monk, conducted a 108-day prayer session at the cemetery this year, and plans to build a small temple there and hold a concert.“Offering the highest-level respect to the dead is a heroic act,” he said.Gyeonggi province, which has jurisdiction over the cemetery, discussed a renovation plan with Defense Ministry officials earlier this year, but provincial officials later shelved the idea because of worries over a possible conservative backlash ahead of December’s presidential election. Provincial officials who attended the meeting spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity, saying they were not authorized to discuss it with the media.The Defense Ministry declined to comment.Tensions between the Koreas remain high since the sinking of a South Korean warship and a North Korean artillery strike on a border island in 2010. Pyongyang has threatened several times in recent months to attack Seoul, and its April rocket launch, said by North Korea to be a peaceful attempt to send a satellite into space, was widely seen as a test of its long-range missile capabilities.

Most of the dead are unidentified.Qin Furong, a 63-year-old bank employee from Jinan, in eastern China, had long dreamed of finding the remains of her father, who was killed in the war when she was 2. She visited the enemy cemetery after learning about it in 2010, but found most of the graves marked only by wooden signs that read “anonymous.”“No names,” she said in a phone interview with The Associated Press in China. So she burned paper “spirit money,” bowed before a mass grave and made offerings of fruit and alcohol.“Let it be for all the Chinese soldiers who are buried there,” said Qin, who later asked a friend to bring her soil from the cemetery, which she plans to take to her father’s hometown as a memorial to him. She’s grateful South Korea has a place for its former enemies, but she’s disappointed there’s no way to know if her father is among them.Only a few people visit the cemetery each day. During a recent visit by Associated Press journalists, the burial mounds were littered with cigarette butts, possibly used in lieu of incense offerings by Chinese visitors.
But on Tuesday, Peake said her party has changed its mind and would stay in the coalition, calling it a “pragmatic” decision.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

Midland States Bancorp agreed last week to originate millions of dollars of mortgages in predominantly minority neighborhoods as part of a settlement to resolve allegations of lending discrimination.Midland States Bancorp, headquartered in Effingham, Illinois, will originate $8 million in mortgage loans in minority neighborhoods over the next three years to resolve charges that it previously avoided doing business or establishing branches in predominantly black and Hispanic neighborhoods in St. Louis and northern Illinois, according to an announcement from HUD.The settlement comes as a result of a housing discrimination complaint filed against the bank by the Metropolitan St. Louis Equal Housing and Opportunity Council (EHOC), a HUD Fair Housing Initiatives Program agency.According to EHOC’s complaint, Midland States Bancorp deliberately segmented its service area in a manner excluded areas of high minority concentration, a practice referred to as “redlining.” EHOC also alleged the bank located branches in a way that did not give equal access to customers based on race and national origin and also that the bank failed to market mortgage loans in black and Hispanic communities.All charges constitute violations of the Fair Housing Act, which prohibits denying or changing the terms of a loan based on race, sex, disability, or other traits.In addition to providing $8 million in mortgage loans, HUD reports the bank has also agreed to originate $3 million in home repair loans in minority census tracts and an aggregate $4 million in loans for multifamily housing in those areas over the next three years.Midland States Bancorp will also create a $550,000 subsidy fund to provide discounted home purchases or refinance loans in minority markets in St. Louis, Central Illinois, and Northern Illinois, setting aside an additional $400,000 fund for affordable home repair loans.Furthermore, the bank will open a full-service branch in Joliet, Illinois, a loan production branch in St. Louis, and, tentatively, a full-service branch in St. Louis. All will be located in minority neighborhoods.The agreement also provides funding for affirmative marketing to African Americans and Hispanics, financial education for individuals and small businesses, support for training and education, and $200,000 for EHOC, HUD announced.”Today’s settlement demonstrates HUD’s ongoing commitment to addressing lending discrimination, no matter what form it takes,” said Gustavo Velasquez, HUD’s assistant secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity. “Everyone, regardless of their race or national origin, should have equal access to banking services and HUD will continue to take appropriate action to end discriminatory practices.” Share October 6, 2014 486 Views Illinois Bank Settles Over Alleged Fair Housing Violations Fair Housing Act HUD Loan Discrimination Midland States Bancorp 2014-10-06 Tory Barringer in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, News
