Baby, he's a star: The Patrick Star Show will introduce more of the starfish's family.
Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge New Jersey’s Essex County Prosecutor’s Office is moving to dismiss the harassment charges against five people who tweeted or retweeted a police officer’s photo. Asbury Park Press reported the news on Friday afternoon, quoting spokesperson Katherine Carter saying that “after reviewing the cases, we concluded there was insufficient evidence to sustain our burden of proof.” The Nutley Police Department filed a criminal complaint in July against protester Kevin Alfaro, who tweeted a photograph of Detective Peter Sandomenico during a Nutley For Black Lives demonstration in June. Alfaro’s tweet asked “if anyone knows who this bitch is throw his info under this tweet,” something Sandomenico said caused him to fear for the safety of his family.... Continue reading…

  Sling is one of the most affordable cord-cutting services on the market, offering two packages —  Orange and Blue — with 30+ live channels starting at $30 a month or combined for $45 a month. Orange offers the Disney Channel and ESPN, while Blue offers a slate of Fox channels, NBC, Bravo, and Discovery. Both Orange and Blue offer CNN, TBS, Food Network, and BBC America. You can also add on multi-channel packages, like Sports Extras, Kids Extras, or News Extras, starting at $5 a month. Premium add-ons, like Showtime, Starz, and Epix, are also available for an additional monthly charge.  If you're new to Sling TV, you can receive a free three-day trial when you sign up. Here's a complete breakdown of the channels offered on each Sling package.    If you're hoping to get the most bang for your buck once you cut the cord with your cable subscription, Sling is one of the most affordable live streaming services on the market. You can read our full Sling TV review here. The service has two packages with over 30 channels starting at just $30 a month. Though you may make some compromises in the user interface department — it's not as pretty or as intuitive as some other streaming services out there — the amount of channels offered is just as good as its competitors. But Sling's website makes it a bit difficult to compare services and ensure you'll be getting the channels you're after, so we've broken down exactly what you'll get with each package and all the add-ons you can include to enhance your channel offerings. Updated on 8/5/2020 by Steven Cohen: Revised details for Sling's current free trial offer. Added Kartoon Channel! to premium add-ons. Added a link to our Sling TV review.  The two main packages — Sling Orange and Sling Blue — offer 30+ channels for $30 a month, or $45 combined Sling's two main offerings are Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each available to stream for $30 a month. For the most part, the channels largely overlap between the two, but there are a few key differences that might cause you to choose one over the other. Disney and ESPN are included with Sling Orange. You don't get them with Sling Blue, but in their place, you'll get a slate of Fox-owned channels including FX, Fox Sports 1, National Geographic, Bravo, TLC, and Discovery. Blue also comes with NBC and its local affiliates, but only if you live in select markets — more on that later. The channels that overlap on both Orange and Blue include standouts like Food Network, Lifetime, CNN, and the History Channel. If you're keeping up with the newest season of "American Horror Story" on FX, but you absolutely can't live without "SportsCenter" on ESPN, you might want to combine the two packages for $45 a month, giving you access to all 50+ channels Sling offers over the two services. Sling Orange doesn't offer any local channels at all, so if you're hoping to catch your local nightly news, Sling Blue is the way to go. Blue offers local channels from NBC and Fox, but only in select cities. If you live in any of the following Designated Market Areas, you'll have access to both your local NBC and Fox affiliates: New York; Philadelphia; Chicago; Washington, DC; Dallas/ Ft. Worth; Los Angeles; and San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose. For a full list of markets supported by each station, check out the Sling website.  If you live outside any of the supported regions and you're really attached to your locals, you'll have to find another way to access those networks. Sling actually offers a solution for this via a special bundle it provides with an antenna and an AirTV 2. This bundle is available for new subscribers who prepay for three months of Sling service. The antenna allows you to pick up local channels via over-the-air (OTA) broadcasts. The AirTV 2 then allows you to integrate those channels with the Sling app on several supported devices. There are plenty of add-ons starting at $5 a month if you're looking for specific genres or channels If you want to further enhance your channel selection, Sling offers a slate of genre-based add-ons starting at $5 a month. Each add-on, like Kids Extras, Sports Extras, and Lifestyle Extras, offers a mini-bundle of channels for an additional charge. Sling offers seven of these mini-bundles, which they'll package together and throw in 50 hours of DVR service for just $20 a month, a $20 savings compared to buying them separately. Though HBO is no longer offered, there are still several premium add-ons you may want to tack onto your service. For $10 a month, you'll get a slate of nine Showtime channels — perfect if you want to stay up to date with the new season of "The L Word: Generation Q." Sling also offers a Starz package for $9 a month and an EPIX package for $5 a month. If you're using Sling a la carte, the monthly charges per add-on can increase your rates pretty quickly, but if you're happy with its baseline Orange or Blue offerings, Sling is incredibly cost-efficient.   See below for a full breakdown of all Sling's channel offerings and add-ons, and click here to sign up and start streaming live TV.

(Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) If builders could incorporate solar harvesting into the siding of a building, the amount of energy from the grid that a structure would need may significantly decrease. In research published recently in Renewable Energy, a team of researchers from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, led by Diana-Andra Borca-Tasciuc, a professor of mechanical, aerospace, and nuclear engineering, demonstrated the potential of wedge-shaped luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs). These efficient modular solar units could easily be hung on the side of a building.

Sign up to the Life newsletter for daily tips, advice, how-tos and escapism.Two great-grandparents separated over lockdown celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary with a physically-distanced outdoor lunch at a care home.Andy Davidson, an 88-year-old resident at Jesmond Care Home in Aberdeen, and his 86-year-old wife Margaret, enjoyed some food and a whisky while separated by a Perspex screen as they marked the milestone.Their daughter Brenda had cushions made with pictures of their faces on them “so they can cuddle up together” while care home visiting remains restricted.She also organised a cake, while Andy made a picture for his wife with a blue heart to represent their sapphire anniversary. When asked for the secret to a long and happy marriage, Andy said they “have just always gotten along fine”.The couple met at work in 1951 and married on July 30 four years later at New Deer South Church in Turriff, Aberdeenshire.Andy worked for a local builder’s firm before carrying out national service for two years, and when he returned his future wife was the new office clerk.They were formally introduced by her brother Gordon at a dance – with Andy proposing at another dance in New Deer which eventually became their wedding venue.Margaret said: “Andy was always a quiet man. We were walking along the road and he turned to me and said ‘Let’s get married’.”As well as daughter Brenda, the couple are parents to son Andrew, grandparents to three children and have one great-grandchild.Andy said he “couldn’t believe” they have been married 65 years, while care home staff said they were impressed at the constant compliments he gives his wife, telling her she “looked really good”.Jade McGowan, activities co-ordinator at the Renaissance Care home, said: “It was great to be able to help set the anniversary celebration up for Andy and Margaret.“Lockdown has been tough for all of our residents’ loved ones and it’s been fantastic seeing them reunite over the last few weeks.“But to mark 65 years of love between the pair was extra special.”Related...

(University of Johannesburg) Researchers from the University of Johannesburg have shown that plantain, a starchy type of banana, is a promising renewable source for an emerging type of lighter, rust-free composite materials for the automotive industry. The natural plantain fibres are combined with carbon nanotubes and epoxy resin to form a natural fibre-reinforced hybrid polymer nanocomposite material. The composite has 31% more tensile and 34% more flexural strength than the epoxy resin alone.

Whenever I’ve tried using Discord’s mobile app to call a friend, I’ve found the audio quality to be pretty subpar. Sure, Discord’s desktop app gives you a few options, like simply using a better mic, and there are a few ways to add noise suppression — particularly if you have an Nvidia graphics card. But now, Discord has added the same background noise suppression feature to its mobile app that it rolled out on desktop in April, meaning your phone’s built-in mic or your earbuds should be able to take advantage as well. Like the desktop version, Discord partnered with Krisp.ai to create a virtual microphone that should intelligently filter out the background noise that might keep people from hearing your voice, like the clack-clack-clack...
