Advantages And Disadvantages Of HD Radio

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

HD Radio is also known as High-Definition Radio. It first landed onto the market many years ago. The reasons why most consumers are unaware of the HD Radio option include the cost of equipment purchase, lack of marketing and push for satellite radio. HD Radio is free of charge. But, unlike satellite radio, you are required to purchase expensive equipment in order to get the exciting experience of this innovative technology. If you are considering purchase of such equipment, you must first understand the basis of the technology and its advantages and disadvantages. This way, you can find yourself in a much better position to determine what listening option is best for you.

Advantages of HD Radio The advantages of the HD Radio can be listed as follows.

  • It offers new and crisp, crystal-clear sound.
  • The HD Radio uses the advanced technology to display informational text on the radio screen.
  • This advanced digital display mechanism of the HD Radio has now enabled syndicated radio programs to provide regional and local information in a text format.
  • Both AM and FM frequencies are offered on HD Radio.
  • Because of this hottest new technology, the current AM sound will improve to the level at which we hear FM radio signal today.
  • Eventually, the listener gets more options in radio as the AM channels become more clear.

Disadvantages to HD Radio The disadvantages to HD Radio may include the following. ·

  • The HD Radio is not able to speak with a disc jockey.
  • HD Radio is designed to automate. It means it does not require disc jockey service. Therefore, if you have a question about an artist or a song, there will be no one to contact.
  • You may be listening to a continuous music format and nothing more because not all HD channels are presently using digital text display.
  • The equipment you need to purchase is quite expensive. The cost to purchase the equipment varies to purchase prices upwards of $1000 each.
  • However, you can also find a less expensive version in a clock radio, but cost still remains the primary factor, which prevents many from biting into the HD Radio market.

Criticism The HD Radio system has not been immune to criticisms.

  • Many find the claims of higher audio quality to be exaggerated or even untrue when multicasting is used, as individual channel rates are reduced.
  • Some also report a decrease in audio quality on the analog signal of stations that have taken up the system.
  • Another common criticism is that the use of the digital transmission format on the medium wave (AM) band is unreasonable because of high levels of interference and noise on the band.

Thus, there are various advantages and disadvantages of HD Radio. Therefore, you need to be prudent before you purchase the expensive equipment to enjoy the new technology.

Glenn Close Stars in "The Wife" As The Talented & Supportive Spouse – An Oscar Contending Role

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

It’s 1992, Connecticut. Joan and Joe Castleman (Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce) lie in bed failing to fall asleep, anxiously anticipating a phone call. Later Joe gets up and downs some sweets to calm his nerves for tomorrow the Nobel Prize Honorees will be announced. Awoken at dawn they hear the news exactly as they dreamed. In the following days there are celebrations, dinners and plans for the upcoming trip to Sweden. We recognize how they complement each other, Joe being casual, vain and absent-minded while Joan is composed, elegant and self-effacing.

After learning he won the Nobel, Joe tells admirers, „My wife’s not a writer.“ The comment irks Joan, yet she lets it pass. It’s the window into their fraudulent partnership.

On the Concorde flight to Stockholm, the family is approached by a relentless Nathaniel Bone (Christian Slater) who is set on writing Joe’s biography, with or without his participation. Joe rejects his pleas, uncomfortable with his intrusion. However, Joan advises a more diplomatic approach, a foreshadow of what’s to come, when things began to fall apart.

In Stockholm, we see why the Castlemans dislike such a journalist poking into their lives when Joe takes a shine to the pretty young photographer (Karin Franz Korlof) assigned to document his stay. Joan takes notice of this budding dalliance but lets it slide. It’s happened before. Interspersed flashbacks fill in the gaps, back to the 1960s when young Joe (Harry Lloyd) was a struggling married writer teaching creative writing at Smith College and Joan (Annie Starke) was his eager student showing considerable talent. They have an affair, he leaves his wife to marry her. Soon Joan abandons her ambitions realizing writing is male dominated game and that her talents are a threat to the self-esteem of the man she loves.

In preparation for the award acceptance, the attendees practice the ritual ceremony bowing to the King, then other prize winners and finally the audience. As Joe does his, he feels faint and has to be helped from the stage. Was it nerves, guilt, or maybe a health issue?

You might think that the Nathaniel Bone character is the antagonist in this story. However, as the story unfolds, he becomes the catalyst opening the scars of a fraudulent life. In the revealing scene at the pub between Joan and Nathaniel, we feel how her recognition in Joe’s success has been overlooked. Joan bobs and weaves, side-stepping Bone’s accusations, remaining the selfless loyal wife, but underneath is the pent-up frustration of always giving, never getting back. A superbly played scene that has so many levels. It’s a scene of escaping, as she drinks too much, smokes, something she’s avoided for years, and almost spills the beans about the marriage.

Within this pub scene, there’s a telling flashback that does spill the beans and reveals the crux of their relationship. It’s the open wound that festers in the climactic scene of the movie. After Joan walks out at the award’s dinner, Joe follows her back to the hotel. Thirty years of marriage unravel as they unleash their pent-up resentments and frustrations. As the truth comes out, it becomes a catastrophic ending to what first appeared to be a happy, loving relationship.

The standout performance by Glenn Close is one of restraint, concealing while at the same time revealing the turmoil underneath. It’s an onion-like layer presentation where we only see bits and pieces, yet as they accumulate we slowly get the full picture. Playing the devoted wife, she must keep his secrets, and in this extraordinary, riveting, complicated role, Glenn Close gives the best performance of her career.

As the cantankerous, conceited old writer, Jonathan Pryce vividly portrays the needy, narcissistic husband with suspect writing skills. This is demonstrated when his son David (Max Irons) repeatedly asks for an appraisal of his short story and again when Joe can’t remember the name of the lead character in his most popular book. Yet he has those moments when he is appreciative and loving; where all must be forgiven.

Christian Slater plays the smooth-talking journalist Nathaniel Bone, who seeks fame in doing a biography on Joe Castleman, especially now that he’s won the Nobel Prize. This is a difficult role as he skillfully turns a casual conversation into an impromptu interview gaining material for his book. His scene with Close is the centerpiece of the story as it reveals the depth of Joan’s resentment.

Jane Anderson’s script aptly applies screenwriting instruments, namely foreshadowing, flashbacks, and well-placed plot points. The dialogue is crisp yet filled with enough context to pull us deeper into the characters. In this #MeToo era, the premise, that of neglected respect is most relevant.

Direction by Bjorn Runge is straight forward allowing the highly capable cast to do their thing. With most of the story taking place within the minds of the characters he focuses on their emotional content rather than the informational. For this he uses a delicate balance of action and re-action shots.

Production values are top-notch and nicely display the pageantry of Stockholm and its Nobel Prize Ceremony. Jocelyn Pook“s musical score keeps us emotionally involved, yet making the outcome ambiguous. Editing and sound effects give us that, „We are there,“ feeling.

The Wife is a revealing emotional journey, celebrating feminism and self-discovery.

While screened at film festivals in 2017 (and subsequently acquired for distribution), it was rumored to have been held for release until 2018 in order to give Glenn Close a better shot at an Oscar nomination. Young Joan is played by the daughter of Glenn Close, Annie Starke. Though set in Connecticut and Stockholm, the majority of the film was shot in Glasgow, Scotland.

Moreover, one doesn't need to relax after getting treated using laser and can move to any place immediately after the session is over. As a result, it is a time-effective approach for people leading a busy life.

Shark Cove's Scuba Diving Beach on Oahu

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Named by the Scuba Diving Magazine as one of the "Top Twelve Shore Dives in the World," Shark's Cove at Kalalua Point in North Coast Oahu is definitely one of the island's best shore dives. The name might scare you off, but Shark's Cove is far from being homed by sharks. Instead, the name was derived from the way the cove's lava rock formation appears as seen from the air: it either looks like the head of a shark, or the remains of what a shark has bitten off.

The left side of the cove is where you enter. The rock and coral formations to the entry point are sharp; visitors are advised to wear shoes or reef walkers. However, entering the dive is fairly easy and leads you right out the lava tubes. Underwater, get ready to be amazed by the maze-like cave and cave and lava tube network, ledges, and smooth boulders. One of the best features of Shark's Cove is its clear blue water and visibility that ranges from 50-100 feet — just perfect enough for viewing the reef's rich marine sea life. The reef features more species of fish and more varied marine life than most dive shores in the island. Butterfly fishes, leviathan, needle fish, eels, perch, eagle rays, fluorescent crabs, trigger fish, and sea turtles are some of the sea creatures to delight any diver here.

Shark Cove's only downside is that it can only be dived in summer when ocean water is calm. Because it is located between the big wave surfing spots of Banzai Pipeline and Waimea Bay, diving conditions in Shark's Cove become dangerous during winter months when North Shore waves can rise to more than 20 feet high. Big breaking waves also reduce the reef's visibility. Even in summer, the coves sometimes get choppy. At any time of the year, when you see large ocean waves, it is strongly advised that you stay away from the rocks. And if you walk away from the rocks, walk away facing the sea. The waves are unpredictable, and can get dangerously big at any moment.

Dives in the cove are free. But because of Shark's Cove popularity, parking lots tend to fill up quickly. Still, Shark's Cove is not as crowded as the nearby Hanauma Bay.

If diving is not your cup of tea, there are tide pools nearby; they are excellent for swimming. The seascape is also stunning. You can spend your time just watching the ocean activity and the cove's rock formations, and already be blown away.

Services and amenities: free parking, rest rooms and showers, no lifeguards, small food and drink shops.

Unwanted Pop-Ups: Disguising an Erect Penis

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

For some men, there’s never a „wrong“ time to have an erect penis. An exhibitionist may always welcome a very visible „pup tent,“ or a man who is totally at ease may view penis pop-ups in social or professional situations as just a fact of life. But many men do find that there are times and places where an erect penis is an unwanted distraction. While not a penis health issue per se, an unwanted erect penis can be a problem for some men, so knowing how to handle this situation can make them feel more comfortable with their penis in general.

An adolescent experience

Many times, an adult’s discomfort with an unwanted erect penis goes back to their adolescence. Countless teen-age boys have stood in front of classrooms with pop-ups tenting their flies. They have been forced to make a report or awkwardly work out math problems while awkwardly keeping their boner from touching the chalkboard or smart board. And while doing so, they have endured snickers from their classmates and later may have to put up with nicknames from other boys.

Therefore, when an erect penis pops up in their adult lives – as they are giving a presentation at work or meeting their girl friend’s father for the first time – their previous experience greatly increases their embarrassment and discomfort.

Tips

So what can a guy do to help lessen the awkwardness he experiences in such situations? The following tips may prove helpful.

Go baggy. Sure, when wanting to impress a partner or potential partner, tight pants can be the way to go. But if a guy is worried about pop-ups, he wants to be able to disguise or hide that erect penis. Baggy trousers allow for the penis to expand and stand at attention without attracting undue notice. Sure, some guys are so heavily endowed that this doesn’t work, but for guys of average size, it can make all the difference.

Choose underwear carefully. Every man is different, and his penis has its own way of reacting to different stimuli. For some guys, the way the penis rub against boxers may be more arousing than with briefs – so choosing briefs may be an option. Cotton may cause a different reaction than synthetics. And if a dude associates a certain pair of underwear with hot sex – leave it at home on days when an erection is not on the menu.

Masturbate. If a man is really worried, he may want to simply masturbate a half hour or so before that big presentation or before that important cocktail party. Masturbating will decrease the chance that a penis will get all aroused and restless for the next couple of hours.

Meditate. Some guys find that meditating or practicing yoga can also help them to better control pop-ups. Learning what breathing exercises or visualizations can have a desired temporary „dampening“ effect can be invaluable.

Look for hiding places. Scout the room for opportunities to disguise a persistent bulge in the crotch. If making a speech, take advantage of a podium to hide behind it if the penis gets playful. Standing behind a high-backed chair at a party can do wonders, as can sitting and crossing one’s legs. As a last resort, standing with one’s hands clasped in front of the crotch may draw attention to the area – but those with big enough hands may be able to disguise the fact that there’s an active penis behind them.

An erect penis at the right time is wonderful, so a guy shouldn’t let unwanted pop-ups put him off his game. He still wants to regularly use a superior penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) to encourage greater penis health. The best cremes will contain L-carnitine, an amino acid which has neuroprotective abilities to help maintain a proper degree of penis sensitivity. The crème should also include, vitamin C, a key component of collagen, a tissue in the body that gives skin its tone and elasticity.
