Everyone knows Google, the internet giant that has spent more than $300 million buying up property on the edge of downtown San Jose to build a colossal campus. But Gary? By the end of June, he, too, will have spent about $300 million on properties downtown — scooping up 21 separate parcels in two years — including the historic-but-neglected Bank of Italy building that he has been lighting up to celebrate the Sharks’ run in the National Hockey League playoffs. He and his partners, including real estate investor Jeff Arrillaga, have assembled such a large collection of properties and in such a pattern — essentially running down the spine of San Jose’s downtown core — that he’s considering … [Read more...] about This man is spending as much as Google on downtown San Jose

DES MOINES—The man knows how to make an entrance. During his opening swing through Iowa after declaring his candidacy for president, at his very first campaign stop inside a bustling brew pub here south of downtown, John Hickenlooper arrives to find a crowd of more than 100 voters buzzing about the latest applicant to join the strangest job-interviewing process on Earth. Bending his lanky, 6-foot, 1-inch frame to fit through the crowded doorway of the events room, all eyes on the White House hopeful, the celestial nature of his moment shatters with the pint glass meeting the concrete floor just a few feet away.Story Continued Below It spawns something of a Zapruder film debate: Some attendees say they saw Hickenlooper fumble the glass, others insist he bumped into the man who dropped it, while the candidate himself swears he had nothing to with the accident. Whatever the real explanation, it’s less compelling than what happens next. Hickenlooper instinctively kneels and … [Read more...] about John Hickenlooper Is Running for President As Himself. Uh-oh.

Some older series have aged better than others – as is often the case, even with ones that are critically acclaimed and highly awarded. Others, like “The Golden Girls,” are still beloved and finding new audiences via reruns and streaming services today. Many classic TV series don’t have a large body of critical writing about them, especially when compared with classic films of similar age. From “All In The Family” to “Mad Men,” some important and groundbreaking TV series were multiple Golden Globe winners for different seasons across their runs. Ranking TV series according to critical acclaim is bit different from movies – because there are multiple seasons, a show might appear more than once on this list. It also might have completely different ratings from season to season – among critics and fans alike. After all, isn’t half the fun of being a fan of a show arguing over which season is the best, and exactly … [Read more...] about All 109 Golden Globes best TV series winners, ranked from worst to best
Viet Nam News HCM CITY– The interesting teaching method adopted by Lê Thiên Phúc, a teacher of biology and technology at Phú Nhuận High School in HCM City, is making lessons exciting for students compared to the traditional theory-based lessons. His method, based on the principles of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics), won the first prize in a contest this year titled Community’s Ideas, which encouraged individuals and organisations to come up with innovative technology ideas, products and solutions for the city’s socio-economic development. With Phúc’s method, his students experience food processing and cooking, which they had never done before at home or school. Students are learning how to recognise food and vegetables contaminated by chemicals and poisonous substances and how to grow organic vegetables. Information about nutrients such as proteins, lipids, vitamins, and minerals in vegetables … [Read more...] about Contest honours innovative ideas from community
