Olsen chose 24-by-48-inch porcelain tiles for the walls

Post by JamesExiva »

Designer Tonya Olsen, principal of The Olsen Home, proved that our master bathrooms deserve a starring role with this luxurious design inside a Park City home.
Here, .

Olsen shows us how she cleverly immerses this room in engaging style

The side walls’ large porcelain slabs resemble marble, offering a wallet-friendly alternative to real stone.

Olsen used the material’s veining to visually offset the room’s hard lines and angles

To affordably get the look of stone, Olsen chose 24-by-48-inch porcelain tiles for the walls.
She also favored narrow grout lines to maximize continuity of the tile.  An enclosed wet space occupies the end of the room.
“It isn’t for everyone, but it functions well for people who like to go back and forth from the tub to the shower,” Olsen says.

Creativity extends to the accessories.

Stephanie Holdaway and the team at Gatehouse No


1 cleverly used a dark cutting board to serve as a bathtub caddy.  Olsen set the bottom of the makeup vanity mirror at countertop level.
“You don’t want to have to look above a backsplash to see yourself while sitting,” she explains.  Photo by Rebekah Westover.
A cowhide rug delivers a bold geometric pattern to the room.
“The rug actually accentuates the shower door’s grid pattern,” Olsen says.  Forget about small, framed mirrors.
“A large single mirror visually expands the space,” the designer says.
What’s more, the mirror doubles the forms and light of the two cylindrical pendants suspended in front of it.  Looking for bold new ways to rethink your bedroom or bathroom.

addressing all Unix servers and then all Windows servers

Post by MatthewNub »

Privileged accounts represent a significant attack vector that organizations have to address as part of a proactive cyber security program.
With tens or hundreds of thousands of privileged accounts across a typical enterprise organization, IT security teams have to consider a number of factors as they improve privileged access controls – including complexity, legacy access and the unknown impact of change.
Though some CISOs set a goal from the start of deploying a comprehensive privileged account security program, many others take a phased, step-by-step approach based on an enterprise-wide, long-term strategy.
To start, they often identify a small set of accounts using classification and risk-rating mechanisms to pinpoint the highest risk.
These accounts are moved to a centralized and automated system.
Then gradually, over time, the organization expands coverage to new phases.
The way an organization defines each “phase” will differ from company to company, but following are some examples of typical phases: By platform/technology: Organizations can create phases for administrative accounts in Windows, Linux, mainframes, databases and so on.
In some cases, they address all of the machines on a particular platform first, then another platform, for example, addressing all Unix servers and then all Windows servers, can help to reduce the risk of intruders being able to move laterally between machines.
By region or by business unit: This approach is often used by global organizations in which each region has its own IT group and infrastructure.
Similarly, if a company has separate IT groups for each business unit, it may choose to address each one as a phase.

By application team: If an organization has multiple application development teams


it may choose to work with each team in phases.
When determining which phased approach will work best for your organization, consider what would cause the least disruption while adding the most value.
After you have success in one phase or area, you are in a position to scale up the program.
Look for ways to standardize your approach across the organization.
For instance.

If a pilot project has applied a new approach to managing Unix accounts


use that process and strategy as a blueprint for managing accounts in other platforms.

As one CISO noted in the CyberArk-sponsored CISO View report


“Don’t bite off too much initially.
Phase it in, manage the effort piece-by-piece in an incremental approach.
Use a scoreboard to track your progress as things move into your privileged ID process so you can see month over month what it looks like as you continue to drive the advancement.” In this short video, I share the three primary phases our customer success team often recommends for improving privileged account security using the CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution.

Democrats attending the late Rep

Post by MatthewNub »

We’ve long known that disinformation preys on intense emotional response.
Tommy Shane writing for First Draft in June laid out the myriad ways our psychology can be hijacked to spread falsehoods online.

Among the confusion and the politicization of health guidance in the COVID-19 pandemic


hypocrisy is being used as a tool to provoke emotions and question the credibility of authority figures responding to the crisis.
Democrats attending the late Rep.
John Lewis’ funeral were accused of flouting both masking and social distancing guidelines when a meme used an out of context photo from 2015.
It was debunked by Snopes.
LeadStories debunked a claim accusing Dr.
Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease official, of advocating the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus in 2005.
The fact-check pointed out the hoax cited the study of a different drug, chloroquine, .

And that the researchers never concluded it could be used to treat COVID-19

In the wake of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s congressional mask mandate, Reuters debunked a claim that used an out of context photograph to accuse Pelosi of secretly violating her own order in private.
It’s not the first time we’ve seen hypocrisy used as a tool of both dis- and misinformation during the COVID-19 infodemic.
In April, Le Monde’s fact-checking team Les Décodeurs debunked a claim accusing French President Emmanuel Macron of jet skiing during that country’s lockdown.
In July, Italian fact-checking organization Facta debunked a claim that chastised European leaders shown in a photo dining without wearing masks.
Both instances took old pictures out of context.
It’s also not surprising that these techniques work.
COVID-19 is a new virus, and changing scientific consensus has already bred confusion, as I wrote in July.
Moreover, in the United States, trust in public institutions has been on the decline since the 1960s.
So accusations that authority figures are flouting their own recommendations are appalling and infuriating.
And for the hoaxers and misinformers spreading these claims, that kind of emotional response is exactly what they’re after.

technology TikTok announced in a blog post it would ban deepfakes on the platform to cut down on the spread of disinformation.
Vanessa Pappas, TikTok’s general manager of U.S.
operations, said the intent was to protect users from, “content that misleads users by distorting the truth of events in a way that could cause harm.” Pappas also announced TikTok is partnering with PolitiFact and LeadStories to help with fact-checking in this year’s U.S.
presidential election.
WhatsApp is piloting a new feature it calls “search the web” aimed at helping users verify whether the content of messages they receive is true.
The Facebook-owned company said users can tap a magnifying glass button that will then lead to a prompt that will allow them to search the information on the web.
The feature was rolled out starting this week in Brazil, Italy, Ireland, Mexico, Spain, U.K., and the U.S.

Politics A number of news organizations are paying closer attention to QAnon


Among them: The Washington Post’s Isaac Stanley-Becker wrote that recent actions by President Donald Trump and his associates have brought QAnon adherents “more directly into the fold.” Axios described “QAnon’s 2020 resurgence.” One nugget from the piece: According to Atlantic Council data shared with Axios, QAnon pages and groups on Facebook “had nearly 10 times more likes at the end of last month than they did last July.” QAnon followers are targeting media outlets in Nigeria, casting U.S.
Democrats as anti-Black, the Daily Beast reported.
PolitiFact’s Daniel Funke tackled the question of why videos manipulated to make House Speaker Nancy Pelosi look drunk keep going viral.

science and health Quebec’s public health research institute found in a survey that even some health care workers believed misinformation about the coronavirus, the CBC reported.
Overall.

Almost one in four people believed the COVID-19 virus was man-made


the CBC said, and among those working in a health care setting the number was 28%.
Picking up on last week’s controversy involving doctors spreading misinformation about COVID-19 cures, HuffPost wrote about some ways people can tell if their doctor is a quack.
In a July 30 tweet.

President Trump once again criticized mail-in ballots as potentially fraudulent


saying their use could lead to inaccurate results, even as some state and local officials are trying to encourage people to vote by mail to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The president sought to make a distinction between mail-in and absentee ballots, while also raising the prospect of a delayed election.
There were so many assertions tied together in one tweet that unraveling it required a comprehensive guide.
Indeed, FactCheck.org delivered just that. The fact-checker walked through some of the most common claims associated with the balloting issue: Mail-in vs.
absentee voting, false claims about voting in Michigan and California, and a conspiracy theory about fake ballots being printed overseas.
In fact, Trump on Tuesday backtracked from a claim about mail-in ballots in Florida.
CNN reported that Republicans in the state had been urging the president to reassure Floridians that mail-in balloting was secure.
What we liked: With the firepower of four staff writers, FactCheck.org created a thorough, one-stop-shopping fact-check on mail-in voting that can be a go-to source for anyone seeking the facts on voting mechanics.

Communal bathrooms add to unique college experience

Post by JamesExiva »

One of the scariest parts of college dorm living for some students is the communal bathroom situation.
With several students all using the same bathroom, I often feared there would not be a shower available when I needed it, or it would be too crowded to use a sink when getting ready in the morning.  The University has announced new bathroom cleaning procedures and guidelines to limit the spread of COVID-19.
All bathrooms will now be cleaned daily with “hospital grade disinfectant and electrostatic devices,” all surfaces will be cleaned three to four times per day, shower walls and fixtures will receive a deep cleaning once per week, all occupants must wear a mask unless in the shower or at the sink and social distancing efforts are emphasized.
Though it may be hard to adjust to sharing a bathroom with other people, here are a few tips and helpful hints for getting used to communal bathroom living.
Always wear shower shoes or flip-flops into the shower The bathroom is one of the biggest areas of concern when it comes to the spread of COVID-19 among students.
With so many handles, fixtures and surfaces that get touched by dozens of students each day, limiting skin exposure in the bathroom is extremely important.
Wearing shower shoes or flip-flops in the shower is safe and easy (athlete’s foot is a real thing!), as the shower can sometimes be pretty gross and be covered in bacteria after multiple people have used it in a day.
Last semester, there was a student who never wore shoes into the bathroom and repeatedly got called out for it; don’t let that happen to you.

Bring a shower caddy Probably one of the most underrated college dorm purchases


a shower caddy is super handy (and cheap) and makes bathroom trips super easy and convenient.
Put your shampoo, conditioner, soap, razor or deodorant in it; anything you could possibly need.
Clean up after yourself No one likes a floormate who leaves their stuff everywhere and doesn’t clean up after themself when using the shower or sink.
Body hair is disgusting and no one wants to touch it; clean it up so you don’t have to force others to deal with it.
Be courteous to others and they will do the same in return.  Don’t forget to bring your keys with you You never know when your roommate will leave the room, even if you are only gone for a few minutes.
Avoid the embarrassing trips to the front desk with your shower caddy and clothes in your hand; bring your keys everywhere you go.

Avoid peak hours Definitely consider avoiding the bathroom during peak hours


usually between 8-9 a.m.
If you are a morning shower person, don’t wait until the last minute to get ready in the morning because you never know if a shower is going to be available.
If you know you are a slow-moving person in the mornings, set out your stuff the night prior (your roommate will thank you as well) and plan your time accordingly; you don’t want to be late to your classes, whether they be online or in-person.

The post Creating Characters in All-Star Troopers

Post by MatthewNub »

One of the most exciting parts of any game is getting to meet the characters that inhabit the game world.
Because our upcoming title, All-Star Troopers, features a cast of exciting and unique characters to play as, we wanted to give our fans an inside look at the process behind how we designed our Troopers.
While we can’t reveal all our secrets, and we can’t always account for the multitude of changes that can happen during game development, we can share a typical approach to how characters are designed, made, and put into a game.
As one might expect, video game characters are often born from a great idea.
We like to start out with a brainstorming session combining our art and design teams, with one key ingredient: a good understanding of gameplay.
Knowing what the core game loop is, what the player is going to do, and how they will progress is crucial to creating characters that fit well in the world and are exciting to play.
Once the team is together, we start with thinking about the type of game we’re making and the genre that it is a part of: what are the common personalities that exist in these kinds of games.
What does the player expect and want to see.
Luckily for us, the answers to these came pretty quickly.
Having already decided to make a mobile strategy builder, inspired by military and sci-fi imagery, some standard archetypes began to emerge that are commonly found in these types of games.
For example.

Bearzukov is a tank character: this is someone who will soak damage


have a big output, and typically move slowly.
Furthermore, having other characters that contrast with these characteristics – like speedy Leopoleon or healing Shamaya – makes it more satisfying for the player to create a squad with different traits that they can strategically switch between during battles.
As these ideas get discussed, our artist will sketch some options out for how the character might look.
But don’t forget about gameplay.
If a character uses a weapon or engages in any kind of combat, that needs to be drawn and designed too.

In the case of All-Star Troopers


long-range weapons are the way to go, so Bearzukov needed to be equipped with something that caused a lot of damage from a distance.
Below are some of the variations of our favourite military bear… you can see the evolution quite a bit.
(Check out our interview with our illustrator, Mari, to learn more about her role at Norsfell.) After the concept art is drawn and approved by our art director, then comes modelling.
Not every game needs this step, .

But we knew we wanted our Troopers in 3D

Our 3D artist works off of the concept drawing to create a standing ‘rest pose’ for the character, while still keeping gameplay in mind.
In this case, this means considering how the characters will move and interact in the world, while being aware of requirements and limitations.
At this stage, the 3D model may be returned to our artist for further texturing and detail.
The rest pose is then rigged, creating a skeletal and muscular system that not only designates joints, but also how movement in one part of the body affects the rest.
This creates a puppet that can then be animated.

The animations that we needed for All-Star Troopers are pretty standard – stationary pose


run, combat, etc – but a well-rigged model has all kinds of possibilities.
The last step is integrating the character in the game and assigning the correct conditions to each animation.

This ensures that Bearzukov will shoot when in range of an enemy


instead of just running in place.
Once the character is in the game, we can start testing it.
We’ll try everything from running around to interacting in the world, just to see if the design plans hold up.
At this point, balancing comes into play as our economic game designer will determine how strong a character is or how much damage they can handle.
This step generally requires playing the game and testing out different values and combinations, and is the best way to know if our Bearzukov is overpowering all the other characters and needs to be scaled back, for example.
It will also highlight if other aspects of the design need to be reviewed, such as a turret that is too strong or which characters should be harder to acquire than others.
Sometimes when games are designed, developers think of the characters first and then build the world around the people in them.
Others (and what we tend to do!) will start with gameplay and mechanics, and then choose a theme and characters that fit within it.
The pipeline detailed in this post is quite common in game development studios, and truly shows how many people it takes to create just one character.
While this is only one part of the game design process, interesting and well-designed characters are an important part of creating a memorable and fun gaming experience.

People are busy like in every European city

Post by elyaqtfgwpci »

By Pia ParolinI was in Trieste for work and had a spare day


one of those cold sunny winter days where the sky is just marvellous blue.
So, .

I decided for Ljubljana which is just one hour drive away

I had been there as a kid but I can hardly remember it.
And so much has changed since the fall of Yugoslavia – now Slovenia is part of the European Union and its currency is the Euro.I made my way over the well built empty highway through beautiful karstic landscapes.
The snowy mountains were visible in the distance. Only a few kilometres out of Trieste and already I was at the frontier, which is not a border any more.You can still see the old buildings where the Iron Curtain separated Western from Eastern Europe not so long ago.
Today, no controls, no frontier, only big signs saying “Slovenia” and “Europe”.I must admit I felt a bit like I visited a very remote country although I was in the heart of Europe.
I have no idea of the country, its language and its culture and yet it’s so close to where I was born, near Venice! I parked the car in the city center in a very modern subterranean lot and walked up to discover this European capital.
The centre of the city is very easy to access.
Up on the hill in front of me stood the castle which overlooks the city and the river down below, bending in the valley.Everything is restored and shiny and well organized.
I found myself in the middle of a spectacular huge square with trees, beautiful old buildings, lots of people walking around, park benches and a memorial.
All these churches and the castle on the top of the hill form a beautiful scenery. The people walked with a rather brisk step and did not really look at me.
I stood there with my camera, but they looked away and hardly gave me a smile.
People are busy like in every European city, walking with their cell phones attached to their ears.

But they are friendly and many speak English


at least in tourist places.I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the buildings and by the great atmosphere with lots of young people.
The university in the city centre diffuses a sense of youth and relaxation.
Not really much from the old days is left in the city centre.
All the cars are modern and of international brands, shiny and colourful.
Workers are busy renovating the roads and houses.

The old city architecture reminds me of Austrian cities


In fact, .

Austria is really close by and culturally closer than Italy

You can tell by the way the houses are rebuilt and by the local food.I crossed the romantic little river and walked along it.
There are a lot of restaurants.
People enjoyed sitting outside although a cold wind was blowing.
I imagine this place in summer, it must be full of life and enjoyment.Then, the architecture changed.
Old grey houses became more prevalent.
Some are occupied by squatters and painted with street art.
Just two minutes outside the touristic centre the feel of the old days is still there, .

With the architecture of the Communist times

Some houses are really rundown and not renovated, yet leaving space for the memory of the old times.
I liked the contrast between old and new which is so evident at every corner. I walked back towards the old city centre and came across a lot of old book and record shops.
They sell music on old vinyl records like 30 years ago.
I stopped at the beautiful traditional Restaurant Sokol and had a mushroom soup in a bread cup.
That was really different and very tasty. Ljubljana is a real European capital city with splendid architecture and great cultural life.

It is a candidate as capital of culture in Europe for 2024


The European banner is present everywhere


I cross my fingers, .

It really deserves the title.On my way back I drove past Lipica

It is the place where since 1580 they breed the Lipizzaner horses


The famous Spanish Riding School of Vienna in Austria uses these horses


which are the epitome of horse beauty and classical dressage. Lipica is the world’s oldest continuously operating stud farm.
In a one hour guided tour you can visit the whole area with its stables, dressage ring, pastures and historical buildings.
The huge white horses stared at us peacefully during our visit.I recommend this place not only for horse lovers, but also for those who appreciate nature.
To reach the farm you drive through a beautiful karstic landscape with dolines.
It is a charming terrain, but be careful when wandering around.
It is very rocky and belowground enormous cave systems have formed.
The small craters formed by the collapsing karst have their own special microclimate on the ground which allows plants to grow which otherwise do not tolerate the climate. In the afternoon I drove back to beautiful Trieste, with the firm intention to come back with a lot more time and explore the rest of this interesting country.About the AuthorBorn and raised in Italy, Pia Parolin studied biology in Germany and in Brazilian Amazonia.
