These are the key commercial real-estate deals and trends to watch

We rounded up the latest news on commercial real-estate deals and trends. Katie Warren/Business Insider The coronavirus pandemic threw the real-estate world into disarray, as people emptied out of offices, hotels, and malls and worked from their homes. That disruption has transformed how people and companies finance, operate, and occupy real estate. Some big firms have been rethinking office needs — and some commercial real-estate deals were put on ice as financing dries up. Coworking and f...

What on earth are GM Bill Guerin and the Wild doing?

Wednesday's news that the Wild sent Eric Staal to Buffalo in exchange for Marcus Johansson was enough of a head-scratching moment that it requires the exploration of a bigger question: What exactly are Bill Guerin and the Wild doing here? The Wild is in need of centers and doesn't have a ton of financial flexibility. And so Minnesota … traded its popular top-line center for someone less productive and more expensive ($4.5 million cap hit next year vs. $3.25 million for Staal, with both on the fi...

Trump had an unusual reaction to 9/11 just hours after the attacks

building (48/100)

My husband has a thing for bikes. He’s had a thing for bikes ever since I met him 19 years ago. He has a thing for bikes like I have a thing for bags and journals. (But let the record reflect my things are far cheaper than his thing. Ahem.)Because Marcus is a big guy (6’5”, more or less), finding a bike frame that fits him can be a bit of a challenge. Some time ago, he ordered a custom frame, and it a...

Markieff Morris breaks out for Lakers in Game 2 win

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — His teammates call him “Smooth.” Markieff Morris is “Smooth” because of his low-pitched baritone that soft until the moment he needs to start talking tough on the court. “Smooth” wears blue Crocs after games — prioritizing comfort over fashion — and when he walks he takes slow, gliding strides. Most importantly, “Smooth” can shoot, and when he knocks down threes, that’s when he seems to be playing at his most effortless of all. His Lakers teammates have seen that side of...

Lakers seek answers for Rockets after another Game 1 loss

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Time off, it seems, does not suit the Lakers. For the second time, the Lakers had six days off going into a Game 1 while their opponent had played just two days before. And both times, against the Trail Blazers and then the Rockets, they looked like the slower, less-prepared team.  Even though the Rockets are the NBA’s smallest team on paper, the Lakers seemed overwhelmed by their speed – something Kentavious Caldwell-Pope said he doesn’t think will happen quite on that ...

summer vacation (40/100)

When I was growing up, my parents were adamant about leaving home at some point during the summer, preferably to visit a different country. Since we lived in the Caribbean, these trips were sometimes exotic — to places like the United States, Canada (where my Dad has family) and once, Europe — but more often than not, they were quick trips to neighbouring islands. It was important to them that my sister ...

Clippers’ Marcus Morris produces and plays instigator in opening round of playoffs

When fans think back on Marcus Morris Sr.’s role in the Clippers’ Western Conference first-round series win against the Dallas Mavericks, the first thing that comes to mind likely will be his Game 6 ejection, the result of his chop to the back of Luka Doncic’s neck as Morris defended his drive to the basket. And then they’ll probably recall the debate about whether Morris did or didn’t intentionally step on Doncic’s sprained left foot in Game 5 — Morris, let’s not forget, says no way was it purp...

close call (34/100)

We woke up to some hopeful news: while Hurricane Laura intensified to a Category 3 storm last night, it looks like Houston is going to escape the worst of it. We might get a gnarly thunderstorm or two, and wind gusts might knock power out, but not much more. We've decided there's no reason to evacuate. For now, I'm just spending the day in Marcus' favourite armchair, writing and keeping a lookout for any ...

Rolling Blackouts in California Have Power Experts Stumped (slashdot)

Energy experts are bewildered as to why the manager of California's electric grid called on utilities to cut power to hundreds of thousands of customers over the weekend. "They said that the utilities had plenty of power available and that the blackouts weren't necessary," writes Ivan Penn via The New York Times. From the report: "They set it up like this is a historic event," said Bill Powers, a San Diego engineer who provides expert testimony on utility matters before the state's regulators. "...

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — On the first night of the NBA playoffs, the Clippers took care of business. In a wild 118-110 win over the Dallas Mavericks, the Clippers were able to withstand Luka Doncic’s 42-point playoff debut, in part thanks to a controversial call that drew near-universal criticism. But what are the storylines to follow as the series unfolds? What might apply to the future games?

Cory Doctorow experiments with AI writing partner Sudowrite

GPT-3 is a machine-learning trained language model that generates text based on a text prompt. Cory Doctorow has been playing around with a closed-beta implementation of Sudowrite, which he describes as a "GPT3-based text generator for fiction writers. You give it characters, plot summaries, dialogue, or twist endings," and Sudowrite generates one of more paragraphs of text based on that.
