Whether Haitian or Dominican, the discussion about the nationality of the New York Yankees player should be left behind and appreciate what he can do on the field.

At 23 years old and with some opportunities in the past, the ?prospect? label of Estevan Florial it begins to fall.

In his fifth major league call-up, although he has only played once previously, injuries to the Bronx Mules have opened up perhaps his best opportunity to date.

In two games and six at-bats, he has connected two hits (double and homer) with two RBIs and one scored, decreeing his best performance in the big top so far.

On the other hand, it is unfortunate that every time Florial begins to show his talent, whether in the minors or the majors, his nationality dilemma comes to light.

Florial was born in Dominican Republic but her parents are Haitian, a common reality at a general level. Many Dominican-Haitians find themselves in this situation, because their parents were irregularly in Dominican territory at the time of their birth.

A year ago, Florial spoke with William Aish, sports editor of the Nuevo Diario, where he reported that he gave up trying to play as a native in the Dominican Winter League, even though he feels Dominican.

?Although I live in the Dominican Republic, after all, Haiti is part of me and my family,? said the gardener.

Estevan Florial is a different case than the debates that are created when a player is born in a country and his parents have a different origin, since the legal issue is first-hand.

The jurist Nelson Jáquez points out that the Florial case is common in the Dominican Republic and qualifies the issue as ?complex? that has sparked countless discussions and has caused the country to be subject to sanctions by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights in different cases.

?Before the modification to the (Dominican) Constitution in 2010, article 11 established that all persons born in the territory of the Dominican Republic would be Dominicans, with only one exception relative to the legitimate children of foreigners residing in the country in diplomatic representation or in transit. This is known as jus soli ?, explains the Fima partner CHJ Legal.

?In the particular case there is a background that requires a greater analysis and to know, if there is any process in process,? concludes the lawyer.

At the moment Florial remains registered as Haitian even though he feels Dominican, although on the field he only needs to be one thing: a great player.

At under 30, John and Patrick Collison are the richest kids on the planet. They revolutionized e-commerce by inventing Stripe, a universal online payment software. They are worth nearly 10 billion!

The Collison brothers were 17 and 19 when they sold their first company, Auctomatic, in 2008 for $ 5 million. Today, the board of directors of their company, Stripe, their online payment software, counts among its members Elon Musk, Visa or American Express? As online commerce explodes, they invent Stripe, a simple software to design, only 7 lines of code (a simple app on the iPhone requires several hundred thousand), and extremely easy to install. Stripe only takes five minutes of practice to enable anyone, like large corporations, to cash secure online payments. And this, in more than 135 currencies.

100,000 companies (including thousands in France) use Stripe in more than 25 countries

Stripe employs 700 people around the world. Here, the two brothers at the premises of the San Francisco-based company.

At 27 and 29, John and Patrick Collison find themselves at the head of a start-up valued at nearly $ 10 billion. Only six years after its creation! However, nothing predestined the two Irish brothers to conquer Silicon Valley. If this is not their passion for computers and a certain talent. When, as teenagers, they create a system to automate the management of auctions on eBay, they understand that their future lies in the United States where they are welcomed with open arms.

The sequel is Stripe, launched in 2011, for which they raised nearly $ 450 million! They enter the closed circle of the youngest billionaires on the Net. Especially when Amazon embraces their system. The juggernaut of online sales which alone brews an annual turnover of 136 billion dollars propels them into the big leagues. That of Zuckerberg, Musk or Systrom.

Status: 07/22/2021 9:12 p.m.

The police and the public prosecutor’s office in Hildesheim searched a group practice in the Gifhorn district. The doctors are suspected of having issued false corona vaccination cards.

The starting point for the investigation was an anonymous tip, which initially involved suspected sham vaccinations against measles. The investigators suspect that, at the request of the parents, the doctors administered saline to the children instead of a vaccine. As a result, it turned out that false corona vaccination cards may also have been issued in the group practice – and “on a larger scale,” as a spokesman for the public prosecutor told the NDR in Lower Saxony. So far, the number can only be guessed at, a two-digit number is possible, according to the spokesman.

Up to ten years imprisonment for commercial fraud possible

The doctors in the group practice are now being investigated, among other things, for commercial fraud. If convicted, a prison sentence of up to ten years is possible. Because of the suspicion that measles vaccines have not been injected, the doctors are also being investigated for bodily harm. During the search of the practice rooms on Wednesday, the investigators found patient records and computer data, among other things, according to the prosecutor. The material is now being evaluated.

The Medical Association is aware of around 100 similar cases

The Lower Saxony Medical Association reacted in dismay to the allegations. Since the beginning of the corona pandemic, the chamber has dealt with around 100 similar cases, said a spokesman for the NDR in Lower Saxony. The spectrum ranges from denying or downplaying the corona pandemic to issuing false vaccination cards or mask certificates. “We expressly disapprove of that,” said the medical association spokesman.

American billionaires earned $ 1.3 trillion between March 2020 and March 2021, according to a study by the Institute For Policy Studies. Ten of the thirteen biggest developments concern Tech company leaders, capturing more than a third of the profits. Elon Musk leads the standings with over 550% increase.

Last March, almost the entire planet found itself confined in an effort by political powers to try to stop a coronavirus pandemic that had become out of control. In one year, this global upheaval has changed many variables, ranging from health aspects to economic issues, including technology. One variable, however, continues to follow the same path in the United States.

The wealth of American billionaires increased by 1.3 trillion dollars in March 2020 and March 2021, a study by the Institute For Policy Studies concluded in an Excel file uploaded at the end of last week, an increase of 44 % of their total wealth. The ranking also shows the hold of the Tech industries in the capture of wealth, with ten of the thirteen strongest changes in wealth favorable to business leaders at the head of Google, Tesla, Facebook and Microsoft.

Elon Musk in rocket mode

Elon Musk is the leader of this ranking with an increase of 558.9% and carried by a year 2020 which saw him for a time overtake Jeff Bezos and become the richest man in the world, according to CNBC in an article from last January, but what this classification invalidates. His estimated fortune rose from $ 24 billion to $ 162 billion.

Next comes Jeff Bezos, ranked first in the world with $ 182 billion, and an annual increase of 65 billion, and Mark Zuckerberg, third. The first woman in this ranking is Mackenzie Scott, novelist and former wife of Jeff Bezos, with a raise of $ 17 billion.

Among the fifteen strongest changes in fortune, the ranking lists ten business leaders in the Tech sector. Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg, so. Next are Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Bill Gates, Michael Dell and Steve Ballmer.

Los Angeles Dodgers lost a golden opportunity this Wednesday to their archrivals San Francisco Giants to take the lead of the NL West, losing his most recent series to them and the last of them being in a dramatic way, after Kenley Jansen once again blew a save in the last inning after a home run in the ninth by Wilmer Flores.

After the home run, manager Dave Roberts pulled out the crane and fans at Dodgers Stadium booed the Curaçao booing loudly, which the pilot did not like at all, since according to what he told Brook Smith of Dodger Nation, the fans have not behaved At the height of a player that he considers, he has given everything for the organization and his fans.

If it bothers me to be booed. He?s a lifelong Dodger. The fans have every right to express their discontent, I understand that; but Kenley Jansen is also a blood Dodger. Nobody hurts more than himself, I assure you. He?s worked hard, he had to be an All-Star, and he?s had a fantastic season.

The reality is that Jansen has had a very good season, once again being the safe closer for the Dodgers, since until before the All-Star Game he had a 1.24 ERA with 21 saves in 23 chances. However, since the All-Star?s return, he has missed two saves in as many chances, raising his ERA to 2.15 in just 2.1 innings pitched, with four earned runs allowed in that span.

Pete Shelley and Howard Devoto saw in the Sex Pistols what they wanted to achieve as musicians. “We realized that someone else was doing what we wanted to do,” Shelley said in an interview with Reuters.

It was the men of “God save the Queen” who motivated a trip in February 1976 from Manchester to London, just to see their new idols. They rented a car and drove to the English capital.

On the way, they bought a copy of the magazine of panoramas, culture and entertainment Time Out -which to date is still in circulation- where they found a headline that caught their attention. “In the magazine there was a synopsis of the television series Rock Follies. The title read ‘It’s the buzz, cock’. That’s where we got the name from, “Shelley said.

In a similar way they configured their greatest radio success: “Ever fallen in love (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve)”. In an interview with The Guardian in February 2006, the recently deceased musician Pete Shelley recalled that it all began in November 1977.

“It had only been six months since we finished our first album. In Manchester we dreamed of that … tours, interviews and being on television. We were enjoying life,” Shelley recalled for the British medium.

“One night in Edinburgh, we were in a house watching the musical Guys and Dolls and we hear the phrase ‘Have you ever fallen in love with someone you shouldn’t have?’. The next day, the van stopped outside a post office and I wrote the letter there. The music just flowed. “

Shelley had one specific person in mind when she let her pen run free across the paper, but that’s a secret she took to her grave: “I’ll keep it to myself.”

But the first few verses were cruder than what finally came to light. “The first line originally said ‘You piss on my natural emotions’, but since ‘Orgasm addict’ was censored on the radio for its title, it needed something more subtle. So I used the word ‘spurn’ (you reject), “he said in conversation with Uncut magazine.

The producer who worked on the song, Martin Rushent, said: “When Pete played ‘Ever Fallen …’ for the first time, my jaw dropped to the floor. I felt like it was the most powerful song they had ever written,” he declared in it. note posted by Uncut.

The 16 of July of 2010 the Warner Bros. Pictures presented the premiere of Inception, the seventh feature film by Christopher Nolan, which managed to become a box office success by grossing almost $ 830 million around the world being your budget just $ 160 million dollars.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoHD9XEInc0

Like other films by the same director, little was known about its history, with the aim of surprising the audience in the same way as 11 years ago I had done it Matrix. The main cast headed by Leonardo Dicaprio It was also a favorable point for his success due to the importance of the actor.

Then We present you a series of curiosities about this film by action Y sci-fi.

After completing the Insomnia, Christopher Nolan first presented the idea of Inception to the executives of Warner Bros. Pictures, who approved the development of the story. But the script was not written, and the director / writer took some time to put it together, thinking it would only be a couple of months, when in reality they ended up being almost 8 years.

This is the second original story in the career of Nolan, who after Following, all his films were based on some comic, graphic novel or some short story. Although he did have an inspiration: The life is dream of Pedro Calderon de la Barca.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hN4SN_A0Cgk

Another curiosity within the script is that the third level of the dream is a reference to On Her Majesty?s Secret Service, from the franchise of James Bond, which is the favorite movie of Christopher Nolan.

2 Edith Piaf

The song No, I do not regret anything of Edith Piaf It is used during the movie to mark “the kick” so that the dreamers can wake up. Nolan was about to change the song taking into account that Marion Cotillard, a member of the cast, had starred in the biopic of the French singer, but it was Hans Zimmer who made him reconsider his decision.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNm8f3tIfAA

There is also another reference to the same song: the movie that lasts 2 hours 28 minutes from beginning to end is a reference to the time of the original recording of the song that lasts 2 minutes and 28 seconds. In DVD, the movie lasts 8888 seconds, the 2 hours 28 minutes 8 seconds?

TREMENDOUS.

3 528491

This number is repeated throughout the film:

  • Number that Fischer le da a Cobb/Arthur it is 528491
  • The two hotel rooms used are the rooms 528 Y 491
  • The number that Eames (as a woman) gives to Fischer it is 528-491
  • The combination of the safe is 528-491
  • The combination of the room where the father of Fischer starts with 52

4 Visual effects

In keeping with the story, the film required various visual effects, which were done in a practical way. The stairs of Penrose, the revolving corridor, the avalanche of mountains and the sequences of zero gravity were done the old way, without making use of computer graphics as many other productions already did at that time. In addition, the tape contains about 500 effect shots on average, a number well below the average 2000 takes that normally such a production requires.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAbbJT0ZXmk

Just as the use of computer effects was rejected, Nolan did not want to bet on many technological advances. The idea of 3D it was discarded so that it had no more value than the story it wanted to tell.

On the other hand, in the cinematography part, analog and non-digital cameras were used, which achieved the Oscar award a Best Photography a Wally Pfister.

5 Leonardo Dicaprio

Besides being the protagonist of the film, Leonardo Dicaprio He served as an executive producer and as a screenwriter. This last position was focused on his role as Domm Cobb, where it helped Nolan already the producer Emma Thomas to better define the story and the character.

The contributions of DiCaprio they were essential to make a movie about a character and that it did not feel like a puzzle.

6 Characters

Some of the character names have different meanings:

  • Dom Cobb (Leonardo Dicaprio)
    “Dom” is the word used to define home in various Slavic languages such as Polish, Russian, Slovenian, Slovak, Serbian, Croatian, etc. This ties in with the character’s goal: to get home to his children. His surname refers to the American architect Henry N. Cobb, known for designing skyscrapers.
  • Yusuf (Dileep Rao)
    It’s the arabic way to say Joseph. In The Bible (Genesis 37-50), Joseph He is sold by his brothers because he has the gift of interpreting dreams.
  • Mal Cobb (Marion Cotillard)
    Just is the diminutive of Malorie which is derived from the French word “Malheur”, which means misfortune or unhappiness.
  • Maurice Fischer (Pete Postlethwaite)
    Named for the visual artist MC Escher, who inspired many of the visual effects
  • Eames (Tom Hardy)
    It refers to the last name of the couple formed by Charles Y Ray Eames, known for furniture design, building architecture, etc.
  • Ariadne (Ellen Page)
    In Greek mythology it is the name of the daughter of the King minos, which is present when the character presents as a solution a diagram of the King Minos Labyrinth for the test you do Cobb.

In addition, they have roles of a film team:

  • Cobb is the director
  • Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is the producer
  • Ariadne is the production designer
  • Eames is the actor
  • Saito (Ken Watanabe) is the study
  • Robert Fischer (Cillian Murphy) is the public

Finally, if you take the first letters of the names of the main characters, Judgment, Robert, Eames, Arthur, Just Y Saito, they spell ?Dreams? (dreams). And if you add to Peter, Ariadne Y Yusuf, the set generates ?Dreams Pay? (dreams pay), which is what a mental thief does.

7 Dreams vs. Reality

As we already know, the final scene leaves an open ending for the viewer to choose whether Cobb Are you living a dream or not by seeing your children. According to Nolan, he believes that it is reality, and it is not the totem where we should fixate, but that the protagonist is no longer obsessed with his dreams.

Michael Caine, who appears briefly in the film, has also joined this discussion by stating that when he is on stage it is always a scene that refers to reality. We can also define when Cobb he is dreaming when he sees his left hand, if he wears a ring it is a dream or a scene flashback.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hhavsmsi_5M

Finally, to the aforementioned musical theme No, I do not regret anything only heard by dreamers, who perceive the piece with a slower speed than normal. In the same way, in the credits of the film it is heard in this way, as a sign that the viewer is waking up from a dream.

By Regis CREPET, meteorologist

Every Thursday, the 4-week weather trend is updated. The latter, which covers the rest of the summer vacation, presents the most likely weather scenario for the next four weeks until August 22.

While the beginning of summer was marked by a very capricious weather with frequent precipitation and thunderstorms linked to the passage of several “cold drops”, the beautiful summer weather has finally managed to settle for a few days this week. As announced for a long time, this beautiful period of sunny and hot weather does not promise to be lasting since a more unstable weather is setting up for the end of July and the beginning of August.

Week from July 26 to August 1 : between clearings, showers and thunderstorms

It is therefore the return of a more unstable weather with an often changing sky, alternating between periods of clearings and cloudy passages sometimes accompanied by showers, even thunderstorms. Note that for once, the Mediterranean coast seems threatened by these stormy showers. Temperatures are trending downwards while remaining fairly close to seasonal norms.

Week of August 2 to 8 : rainy-stormy passages

Continued weather quite disturbed and unstable with passages of rain or thunderstorms over many regions. A few periods of dry weather with clear spells will develop at times but they will never be lasting. Temperatures are said to be quite fluctuating but often a little below seasonal norms.

Week of August 9 to 15 : still unstable in the north, better in the south

The weather would remain unstable in the northern half with showers and temperatures still too fair for the season. In the south, the high pressure could swell again and bring more pleasant weather with beautiful sunny periods.

Week of August 16 to 22 : time improvement wins the northern half

The high pressure could prevail over the whole country with generous sunshine and sharply rising temperatures, exceeding seasonal norms.

In conclusion, this summer is set to be atypical with short periods of good weather and frequently unstable weather with showers and thunderstorms. No period of long lasting heat, unlike the last few summers.

After a first half of July with a deficit of just over 1 ° C, this month of July should end in the normal range or with a slight surplus given the sharp rise in temperatures that we have experienced this week. As for precipitation, we can already say that it will be much more watered than expected. initially given the heavy rains at the beginning of the month over many regions and the new precipitation to come. However, the south-east remains threatened by a lasting drought with a significant risk of fires.

Every Wednesday, Yahoo invites you to get to know a business better. Little secrets, anecdotes, unusual stories, don’t miss the opportunity to wow your friends. For this 51st episode, let’s unravel the secrets of a tech giant: Microsoft.

1 – The $ 2 trillion business

In the midst of a health crisis, the company co-founded by Bill Gates is doing like a charm. Driven by a favorable year 2020 with the generalization of teleworking and confinements, Microsoft generated sales of $ 41.7 billion in the first quarter. These exceptional results enabled the digital juggernaut to cross the symbolic milestone of $ 2 trillion in market value in June 2021. It took him just two years to double his market capitalization. By crossing the threshold of 2000 billion dollars, Microsoft becomes only the second company to reach such a figure? behind Apple, which reached this mark last August.

2 – Microsoft saved Apple from bankruptcy

Precisely, between Microsoft and Apple it is ‘I love you, me neither’ for more than forty years. After working closely together at the end of the 1970s, things took a turn for the worse in 1981 when Microsoft decided to work with IBM, which came into direct competition with Apple machines. As Microsoft invades the world with its PC software, Apple is going through a dark period in the mid-90s. It sounds surreal today, but Apple only accounted for 7% of computer sales in 1996.

Against all odds, and even if Bill Gates and Steve Jobs have the greatest respect for each other, Microsoft is investing $ 150 million in Apple shares and saving it from bankruptcy a year later. In return, Apple agrees in particular to install Internet Explorer by default on its computers and Microsoft undertakes to develop the Office office suite in exchange for the abandonment of all legal proceedings on the patent front.

But this somewhat forced alliance does not please everyone. At the inaugural conference of the MacWorld Expo in Boston on August 6, 1997, Bill Gates was hissed heavily when he appeared on the giant screen. Ironically, Microsoft saw Apple steal the record for the largest market capitalization of all time fifteen years after the deal.

3 – Paul Allen, “the other” founder of Microsoft

If everyone knows Bill Gates and easily associates him with Microsoft, the general public is much less familiar with Paul Allen. And yet, this brilliant brain, who died in 2018, revolutionized computing by co-founding Microsoft – contraction of microprocessor and Software – alongside his childhood best friend Bill Gates in 1975. At the time, the two geniuses wanted to sell a platform capable of running computer programs on personal computers. But, as often, the relationship deteriorates rapidly.

Angry with Bill Gates whom he would later accuse of having conspired to reduce his shares in Microsoft while he was considering his departure and recovering from his first cancer, Paul Allen slammed the company door in 1983. Failing to agree, he leaves with his actions under his arm. His choice is the right one: he waits seventeen years to sell them and becomes extremely wealthy. His fortune exceeded 20 billion dollars at the time of his disappearance.

Although quarreled with his ex-partner, Bill Gates greeted one “of his closest friends” and felt that “personal computing would never have existed without him”. A sports enthusiast, he owned the Seattle Seahawks American Football Team and the Portland Trail Blazers basketball team. A philanthropist, he had pledged to devote half of his fortune to various causes.

4 – The Rolling Stones helped launch Windows 95

26 years ago, Microsoft released Windows 95. It is the first system to include the “Start” button, which has become a must for all users of the Microsoft operating system and its successive versions. And to promote its brand new program, Microsoft has put the small dishes in the big ones by spending several million dollars to have the right to use the tube “Start Me Up” of the mythical British group. A year after its release, Windows 95 became the most popular operating system ever, with nearly 40 million copies sold. It is also the first operating system to see Internet Explorer appear.

As with iPhones today, customers did not hesitate to wait several hours in front of the stores to leave with their precious cardboard box.

5 – millionaires in shambles

For those employees fortunate enough to join Microsoft when the company dominated the IT industry, the gains have been staggering. Some analysts believe that thanks to stock options the company granted to early employees, Microsoft helped 12,000 of them become millionaires in 2005, Business Insider reports. And we do not count either those who have amassed several hundred thousand euros with good investments. Even today, Bill Gates pockets 4,630 dollars (approximately 4,000 euros) per second.

But this somewhat forced alliance does not please everyone. At the inaugural conference of the MacWorld Expo in Boston on August 6, 1997, Bill Gates was hissed heavily when he appeared on the giant screen. Ironically, Microsoft saw Apple steal the record for the largest market capitalization of all time fifteen years after the deal.

3 – Paul Allen, “the other” founder of Microsoft

If everyone knows Bill Gates and easily associates him with Microsoft, the general public is much less familiar with Paul Allen. And yet, this brilliant brain, who died in 2018, revolutionized computing by co-founding Microsoft – contraction of microprocessor and Software – alongside his childhood best friend Bill Gates in 1975. At the time, the two geniuses wanted to sell a platform capable of running computer programs on personal computers. But, as often, the relationship deteriorates rapidly.

Angry with Bill Gates whom he would later accuse of having conspired to reduce his shares in Microsoft while he was considering his departure and recovering from his first cancer, Paul Allen slammed the company door in 1983. Failing to agree, he leaves with his actions under his arm. His choice is the right one: he waits seventeen years to sell them and becomes extremely wealthy. His fortune exceeded 20 billion dollars at the time of his disappearance.

Although quarreled with his ex-partner, Bill Gates greeted one “of his closest friends” and felt that “personal computing would never have existed without him”. A sports enthusiast, he owned the Seattle Seahawks American Football Team and the Portland Trail Blazers basketball team. A philanthropist, he had pledged to devote half of his fortune to various causes.

4 – The Rolling Stones helped launch Windows 95

26 years ago, Microsoft released Windows 95. It is the first system to include the “Start” button, which has become a must for all users of the Microsoft operating system and its successive versions. And to promote its brand new program, Microsoft has put the small dishes in the big ones by spending several million dollars to have the right to use the tube “Start Me Up” of the mythical British group. A year after its release, Windows 95 became the most popular operating system ever, with nearly 40 million copies sold. It is also the first operating system to see Internet Explorer appear.

As with iPhones today, customers did not hesitate to wait several hours in front of the stores to leave with their precious cardboard box.

5 – millionaires in shambles

For those employees fortunate enough to join Microsoft when the company dominated the IT industry, the gains have been staggering. Some analysts believe that thanks to stock options the company granted to early employees, Microsoft helped 12,000 of them become millionaires in 2005, Business Insider reports. And we do not count either those who have amassed several hundred thousand euros with good investments. Even today, Bill Gates pockets 4,630 dollars (approximately 4,000 euros) per second.
