5 things I do every morning before I open my compute

It will come as no surprise that my mornings look quite different these days than they did seven months ago. It’s clear: The whole world looks very different.

Aside from the mundane life changes which make up our new “new normal” (taking coffee at home, wearing masks outdoors, dropping my daughter off at the dining table instead of her school and embracing that “#wfh life” instead of meeting my team at our design studio), there is one major shift that I think most people can relate to. As a parent and entrepreneur, I find myself onboarding new employees through Zoom, attending virtual trade shows, catching up with friends and family through FaceTime, using distance learning for my daughter, and unwinding in front of the TV. After a day of these activities, it seems my whole life is unfolding before a screen. And with my phone in hand most waking hours,

The latest on UGA football and basketball games with Georgia Tech and other schedule updates – Sports – Savannah Morning News

ATHENS — Georgia’s football game with Georgia Tech in 2021 will remain as scheduled to be held in Atlanta even with the teams not playing in Athens this year, Bulldogs athletic director Greg McGarity said.

The in-state rivals will not go up against each other this season for the first time since 1924 after the SEC decided to play a conference-only schedule due to the pandemic. The ACC allowed for one nonconference game played in the school’s home state.

“I think if the shoe were on the other foot, it’s not that you push the game back a year, but it would take both schools to agree to do that and obviously Tech has no interest in doing that,” McGarity said. “We’ll just basically be in Atlanta in 2021. It’s unfortunate but it’s just where things stand.”

The Georgia men’s basketball game at Georgia Tech for this season may not

The South China Morning Post reimagined visual storytelling to cover H

Following the passage of a bill that would allow extradition to mainland China in June 2019, a typically peaceful Hong Kong became the setting of massive pro-democracy protests. Plumes of smoke and tear gas obfuscated neon lights. Police clad in paramilitary gear clashed with protestors in T-shirts, shorts, and makeshift protective gear. The effect was a series of remarkable contrasts. “It was a story made to be told visually,” says Darren Long, head of graphics and magazine design for the South China Morning Post. And yet it was unlike any story his team had told before.

That story, the constant barrage of breaking news, also changed how Long’s team approached news coverage. SCMP’s visual coverage of the Hong Kong protests was incredibly robust, ranging from explainer infographics to in-depth timelines. But when you look at the scope of the SCMP’s graphics as a whole, they offer a

For the rest of us, we’ll make another attempt at locking down a PlayStation 5 (GameStop will take a few more orders today online or in-store) or an NVIDIA RTX 3090 (sorry, you might need a personal genie to get one of these anytime soon). As far as things that are more easily obtainable — Left 4 Dead 2 is available for free on Steam all weekend, complete with a brand-new expansion pack to make one of 2009’s best games fresh all over again. You’re welcome.
