Some roles have been significant hello, Mike Tyson in The Hangover while others have been just small appearances, like LeBron James in that one episode of Entourage.But some athletes have followed up illustrious sporting careers with significant acting roles on both the small and big screen, bringing impactful performances of a totally different kind than their time on the court, the field, or even the ring.Johnson has enjoyed so much success in the acting biz that it s sometimes easy to forget he became famous as an extremely popular professional wrestler.Scratch that: who can forget that signature raised eyebrow and do you smell what The Rock is cooking catchphrase?While he still works with the WWE from time to time, Johnson is a bonafide superstar.He most recently appeared in the latest film in the Fast and the Furious franchise Furious 7, has multiple other franchises in the works, and serves as star and executive producer of HBO s Ballers.

Insinöörikunnan mediaanipalkka kasvoi viime vuonna 2,4 prosenttia edellisvuodesta 3 992 euroon kuukaudessa.Keskiarvopalkka kasvoi samana ajanjaksona 1,2 prosenttia 4 211 euroon.Asia selvää Insinööriliiton viime vuonna tekemästä selvityksestä, jonka tulokset julkistettiin perjantaina.Palkkojen yleiskorotukset ovat insinööreillä olleet maltillisia, yleisimmin noin 0,4 prosenttia.Ne ovat auttaneet palkkojen ostovoiman säilyttämisessä, mutta ansiotason parantaminen on selvityksen mukaan edellyttänyt insinöörin omaa aktiivisuutta, kuten työtehtävien muuttamista tai työpaikan vaihtamista.Vastavalmistuneiden ansiot eivät kasvaneet, mutta työllisyystilanne oli hieman edellisvuotta parempi.
First, let s make this clear: Apple may want to make a vaporizer for industrial purposes.But let s say this, too: With marijuana legalized for recreational and/or medical use in 28 states and counting, there s a giant market opportunity for tech companies to produce devices related to pot consumption.And we know that Apple likes money — so much, in fact, that it parks hundreds of billions of dollars in cash outside the country so it can go on holiday to roll around in it while keeping Uncle Sam s filthy, tax-grabbing mitts off it.That Apple and weed could make for a lucrative match is unquestionable — the brand has world-class pull, and the company makes some awfully sleek devices.Whether Apple will go that route remains unknown outside the company.However, a patent application made public Jan. 26 by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office indicates the Cupertino firm is looking into a device that could perhaps be used for the consumption of pot and THC-bearing extracts.Apple applied in July to patent an apparatus for vaporization or sublimation of a substance.But what substance?SiliconBeat asked Apple, Hey, man, do you put weed in this vaporizer thing?or words to that effect.But we re hopeful: Maybe Apple noted our request and really meant to answer, but then forgot.Or got sidetracked looking for its keys.

Every January, Glassdoor publishes its list of the best jobs of the year.For the second year in a row, the top spot goes to data scientist."This report reinforces that the best jobs are highly-skilled and are staying ahead of the growing trend toward workplace automation," Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor's chief economist, tells Business Insider.He explains that the skills helping workers stay ahead of automation are creativity, judgment, and flexibility."Those are aspects of work that are extremely difficult to automate, and having them allows workers to team up with technology to become more productive, rather than simply being replaced by it," Chamberlain says."Many of the jobs on this list require proficiency in these 'soft' skills," he explains.

Despite its massive success with viewers, Google always had a hard time convincing advertisers that its video platform was the best place for them to reach their target audiences.Now, Google promises to give advertisers and agencies better tools to measure their reach and target specific audiences — all with a focus on mobile.As Google notes in today s announcement, 50 percent of YouTube views now happen on mobile.For advertisers, this means that many of the old tracking technologies that worked well on the desktop don t work all that well on mobile though if you re a user who would prefer not to be tracked, that may actually be a good thing .While technologies like pixels and cookies still have a role in the broader ecosystem, most were built for a single screen—neither pixels nor anonymous cookies were designed for the ways in which users increasingly watch content on YouTube, like on the mobile app or in the living room, YouTube director of product management Diya Jolly writes today.This can lead to inconsistent measurement and less relevant ads across screens, making it harder for people to control the ads they see or the data used to show them.
Hardcore PC gamers and esports pros will find a lot to like about AOC's new curved display thanks to its size, resolution, and carrying handle.Display manufacturer AOC revealed a new desktop monitor on Thursday called the Agon AG352UCG.Serving as the latest addition to the company s Agon line of panels, the 35-inch display sports a small curvature radius of 2,000mm, Nvidia s G-Sync technology, and a native resolution of 3,440 x 1,440.The company believes this panel is the perfect solution for esports professionals despite its size thanks to a nifty carrying handle for easy transportation between tournaments.For those not familiar with Nvidia s G-Sync technology, it only works with Nvidia s GeForce-based desktop graphics cards and its discrete GPUs for laptops.These graphics chips output a number of rendered frames per second just like video, but how fluid the framerates are depend on the underlying hardware, causing fluctuating rates.

Here comes the Sun, in all its terrifying glory.New up-close-and-personal shots from the Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array ALMA in Chile reveal a very large sunspot that looks remarkably like the Eye of Sauron.According to the European Southern Observatory ESO , ALMA used radio interferometry to create the images, meaning it used antennas to receive radio waves from the Sun.Sunspots are oases of relative coolness on the Sun s visible surface, called the photosphere.While sunspots are often pretty large, this one captured by ALMA could fit roughly two Earths in it.It s also rather pretty, in a chaotic way.
Across the universe, unsuspecting galaxies are literally getting the life sucked out of them.Though the culprit is still at large, a team of researchers at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research ICRAR in Western Australia is working tirelessly to crack the case—and to restore law and order.International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research ICRARAfter examining 11,000 galaxies using the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and Arecibo Legacy Fast ALFA survey, the team concluded that a process called ram-pressure stripping—which forces gas out of galaxies—is more common than previously imagined.It s a quick death, because without gas, galaxies are unable to produce more stars.The group s findings were published on January 17th in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

Lyft, the smaller upstart in the ride-hailing wars, is nipping at competitor Uber s wheels.The smaller San Francisco-based company, until now unique in that it showed no interest in global domination, apparently has made an about-face.Lyft is planning to expand internationally, and will reveal more details this year, a person with knowledge of the plans told CNBC.Lyft declined to comment directly on the CNBC report.In an email, spokesman Adrian Durbin told SiliconBeat: We continue to have strong relationships with our international partners and will explore additional ways of working together.News of Lyft s potential international expansion, reported Friday night by CNBC, follows revelations that Lyft also may be closer to profitability than rival Uber.Lyft lost about $600 million last year after pulling in $700 million in revenue, a person with knowledge of Lyft s finances confirmed to SiliconBeat.That s an improvement over 2015, when Lyft lost twice as much as it made.The company expects those losses to shrink even more this year, and plans to be profitable by 2018, according to the same person.The Information first reported on Lyft s 2016 finances Thursday.That means Lyft could be the first to make a profit.Rival Uber was on track to lose $2.8 billion last year after making $6 billion in revenue, The Information reported.Lyft completed more than 160 million rides last year, more than triple its number in 2015, the company announced in a blog post last week.The ride-hailing startup is much smaller than competitor Uber — Lyft is worth $5.5 billion, compared to Uber s $68 billion, according to CB Insights.
