Android P and iOS 12 may not be ready for the public just yet, but if you’re OK with downloading a buggy operating system, you can get your hands on the betas now. Both Apple and Google have been working on their new mobile operating systems for some time now, and both of them have introduced a few new features to those operating systems. Namely, the companies have introduced a new set of gestures to control your software. But how do the operating systems compare when it comes to gestures? We put them head to head to find out. Android P Because most of the gesture-based controls in iOS came before iOS 12 in the iPhone X, the biggest changes to gesture controls come in Android P. And it would be easy to assume that Google has simply copied Apple here, though there are some major differences in gestures between iOS and Android. For starters, Google has done away with the navigation bar at the bottom in favor of a single pill-shaped button. That button acts as a home button when you … [Read more...] about Android P gestures vs. iOS 12 gestures: What are the differences?

At the recent post-premiere party for Uncut Gems, held at the the legendary New York delicatessen Katz’s, I found myself talking with some fellow Jewish film critics. “That guy,” one said, “really reminded me of a family friend.” He was talking about Howard Ratner, the diamond district hustler played by Adam Sandler in the latest from Josh and Benny Safdie. “I have a cousin just like him,” another added. “I don’t think he’s allowed back in the country.” I was still too thunderstruck to speak. The truth is, were it not for a few life choices, Ratner could have been me. Ratner in Uncut Gems is only the most exciting example of this season’s NCJs – New Cinematic Jews. We also have Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit and the Israeli-French film Synonyms. Although there has been no shortage of Jewish characters in movies and TV over the years, they tend to be primarily sardonic, rootless cosmopolitans kvetching … [Read more...] about Soldiers, survivors and loveable rogues: the new wave of Jewish cinema
Kieron Pollard is familiar to the Wankhede pitch due to his IPL experience. © Twitter West Indies coach Phil Simmons on Tuesday said the team would be banking heavily on skipper Kieron Pollard in the series-deciding third T20 International against India as his understanding of the pitch due to IPL exposure will be "invaluable" for the bowlers. Pollard has played a lot at the Wankhede Stadium as he has been part of the Mumbai Indians IPL squad and Simmons said his experience will help the visiting bowlers.

In September 2013, the Polish city of Legnica was preparing to host a reunion of former Soviet officers who had served in the city and left after the Soviet Union fell. The centrepiece of the celebrations would be a monument in the main square showing two soldiers, a Pole and a Russian, locked in a handshake; on their shoulders sat a small girl, her gaze fixed on the Russian. When it was unveiled in 1951, the monument had been described in the local press as an expression of the Polish people’s “limitless gratitude to their liberators”, of “inseparability and eternal friendship with the Soviet Union”. In the middle of the night before the reunion event, Piotr Borodacz, a 25-year-old Polish nationalist, gathered with several friends on the square and doused the “monument of gratitude” in red paint. On its base, they scrawled the symbol of the National Radical Camp, a Polish prewar fascist movement that was resurrected after the fall of … [Read more...] about Poles apart: the bitter conflict over a nation’s communist history
