Rather than strangling the doctor (difficult, due to his injury) Jalava took the corny line as inspiration. He decided to go ahead and actually build a prosthetic finger that contains two gigabytes of digital storage. He can now jack his finger into a computer just by peeling back the nail to expose the USB plug. He can also remove the entire finger at any time and hand it to a friend to use.

When it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, BBC Culture critic Sam Adams awarded Call Me By Your Name five stars and praised Chalamet and Hammer’s chemistry, the lush photography of the sun-kissed Italian setting, and the particular nuance and depth of the script.

His astounding domestic run had veterans and analysts talking about him during the buildup to IPL 2020, especially with Suresh Raina opting out of the season. And despite little match practice amid his extended quarantine period, Gaikwad was given a go, but in the middle-order, in CSK's second and third game. Playing away from his natural position of opening, Gaikwad registered scores of 0 and 5.
He was dropped eventually, and returned only after a month, when CSK's season was all but over. With an eye on the next season already, the management wanted to take a look at available options, mostly youngsters. Gaikwad returned, in place of a struggling Shane Watson, for the game against Mumbai Indians earlier this week. But was dismissed by Trent Boult for a golden duck in the first ball of the game, on a night when CSK were humiliated by the defending champions.
Dhoni continued to back Gaikwad and gave him another go as an opener in the game against Royal Challengers Bangalore in Dubai on Sunday. And this time he did not disappoint and indeed showed some 'spark'. The 22-year-old fell anchor amid the presence of Faf du Plessis and then Ambati Rayudu who brought about immediate urgency against a challenging 146 on a Chepauk-esque Dubai track.

Chinese manufacturers:Coming to the U.S.? Warren Buffett’s BYD says it is arriving in 2015 and Geely in 2016 but we’ve been hearing that someone was coming since at 2006. The refinement of Chinese cars is the issue. With more than 80 local automakers producing 524 different models in China, R&D money is spread too thinly to produce meaningful results.

'Fruitvale Station' represents another remarkable feature debut, by the director Ryan Coogler. Its subject matter-the fatal shooting of Oscar Grant, a black, unarmed 22-year-old by a white transit cop in Oakland, Calif.-might have made a documentary. Mr. Coogler had the better idea of exploring it as a dramatized, and to a considerable extent fictionalized, account of the day in Oscar's life that preceded his death. He's played by Michael B. Jordan, whose performance can break your heart or fill it with joy, sometimes simultaneously.
