DISCOVER NEW DEPTHS
Star Walk 2 is the first astronomy guide to introduce plausible three-dimensional models of planetary nebulae. Star groupings of the 88 officially recognized constellations are also presented in volume. You can see them as separate entities, turn them around and take a look from the other side. Complemented by articles on connected myths and history, this is the most comprehensive collection of information on constellations.*

REAL-TIME MOTION TRACKING
As you hold your phone up and point it towards the sky, Star Walk 2 follows your motions using the built-in gyroscope to match the map on your screen to the stars seen from your location. Easily find any star, constellation, or satellite in the sky by tapping Search. Star Walk will indicate the direction to look in.

NEW POINT OF VIEW
Unlike on a plain photograph, every star in Star Walk 2 has coordinates. That means you can look at objects, for instance, a constellation from any vantage point in space, not to mention the ultimate accuracy of your map for your exact location.

NOW AND LATER
Star Walk 2 gives you accurate daily data on current moon phase, time of sunset and sunrise, and elevation of planets. With just one slide you can see how the sky will look later tonight or throughout the year.

PRO STARGAZING
Special night-time soft red mode will help you preserve night vision when stargazing with a telescope. You can see the sky in X-Ray (and 5 more filters) to study the invisible structure of the universe. Live tracking for over 8,000 satellites will help you catch iridium flares, and detailed articles will satisfy the most curious inquirer.

LONDON (Reuters) – (This version of the story was refiled to make clear in paragraph three that Isner won fifth set 70-68)

LONDON (Reuters) – The needle on the Wimbledon Richter scale sat poised and ready but Serena Williams dug deep into her battle-hardened playbook to ensure there was no earth-shuddering shock at the hands of scurrying Briton Heather Watson on Friday.


MADRID (Reuters) – The new president of the Spanish tennis federation (RFET) has fired the nation’s first female Davis Cup captain, Gala Leon, two weeks before the Group I second-round tie away to Russia.

Back in January, we shared a video of an iPhone 6 that went into space, protected by an iPhone case constructed by Urban Armor Gear. The iPhone 6 came out unscathed, so when Urban Armor Gear offered us the chance to get our hands on a few of its cases to check out for a review, we agreed.

Urban Armor Gear’s line of cases are definitely unique, with an industrial-looking armored shell and an impact resistant inner core. Cases are available for several devices, but we checked out the company’s Rogue Folio for the iPad Air 2, its Rogue Folio for the iPhone 6 Plus, and its Navigator case for the iPhone 6 Plus.


We liked the lightweight, rugged protection offered by each of the cases, but we had some qualms with each of the folio cases. The Rogue Folio for the iPad works as expected, keeping the iPad safe from drops and serving as a stand that offers multiple viewing positions, but when holding the iPad with the case on, the flap is loose and hard to grip.

The same goes for the Rogue Folio for the iPhone. It offers all-around protection, leaves the buttons easy to press, and holds credit cards, but the of the folio is bulky, covers the camera, and feels downright sloppy.

The company’s line of non-folio iPhone cases, which all have a different name based on color, are thin and light, and for the protection they offer, they don’t add a lot of bulk to the iPhone. Ports are left open, buttons are easy to press, and a screen protector keeps the display safe. There’s also a lip around the phone to prevent the display from touching a surface like a desk when facedown.

Urban Armor Gear’s standard iPhone cases can be purchased from the company’s website for $39.95, and are available in white, blue, orange, black, pink, and clear. The company’s folio cases for the iPhone and iPad are available in red and black and can be purchased for $39.95 and $49.95, respectively.

Note: MacRumors received no compensation for this review.


This neo-soul artist performed most of his new album, ‘In Another Life,’ in his set at the Highline Ballroom on Wednesday.


The Reddit community was in flux after the administrator of one of the site’s most popular sections was let go on Thursday.

It’s unclear why Victoria Taylor, the administrator of /r/IAMA (Ask Me Anything), was dismissed, but volunteer moderators shut down several other sections of the social sharing site in protest, NPR reports.

On Friday afternoon, a moderator of the AMA section, or subreddit, posted an explainer:

You may have noticed that /r/IAmA was recently set to “private” for a short period of time. A full explanation can be found here, but the gist of it is that Victoria was unexpectedly let go from Reddit and the admins did not have a good alternative to help conduct AMAs. As a result, our current system will no longer be feasible.

Chooter (Victoria) was let go as an admin by /u/kn0thing. She was a pillar of the AMA community and responsible for nearly all of reddit’s positive press. She helped not only IAMA grow, but reddit as a whole. reddit’s culture would not be what it is today without Victoria’s efforts over the last several years.

We have taken the day to try to understand how Reddit will seek to replace Victoria, and have unfortunately come to the conclusion that they do not have a plan that we can put our trust in.

Taylor reportedly helped arrange and run thousands of AMAs, Reddit’s version of the Q&A, including with President Barack Obama. She said in a short AMA of her own that she was “dazed” after the firing, but didn’t give any hints as to why it happened.

As a result, several popular subreddits, including /r/IAMA, /r/gaming, /r/history, /r/Art, /r/videos and /r/funny, were temporarily set to private, effectively shutting them down. Most of them appeared to be back up and running by mid-Friday afternoon, and many of them explained that the shutdown was due to Taylor’s dismissal.

In a post early Friday, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian apologized for “how we handled communicating change to the AMA team this morning.” He urged subreddit monitors to make their pages public again:

Your message was received loud and clear. The communication between Reddit and the moderators needs to improve dramatically. We will work closely with you all going forward to ensure events like today don’t happen again. At this point, however, the blackout has served its purpose, and now it’s time to get Reddit functioning again.

The popular 10-year-old site reported nearly 164 million unique viewers last month.

MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (AP) — An appeals court has agreed with an Ohio woman who said her parking citation should be tossed because the village law was missing a comma.

Andrea Cammelleri (kah-meh-LEHR’-ee) says she shouldn’t have been issued a citation in 2014 based on the wording of the law enacted by the village of West Jefferson.

The law lists several types of vehicles that can’t be parked longer than 24 hours, including a “motor vehicle camper,” with the comma missing between “vehicle” and “camper.”

Cammelleri says her pickup truck did not fit that definition.

The village says the law’s meaning was clear in context, but Judge Robert Hendrickson of the 12th Ohio District Court of Appeals says in last week’s ruling that West Jefferson should amend the law if it wants it read differently.

Even though most developers work their hardest to ensure that the programs you download onto your Mac run smoothly, sometimes, things go wrong. One issue that may arise is an app using an exorbitant amount of energy or memory, causing your Mac to overheat or suffer severe battery drain.

Sometimes, simply closing an app doesn’t do the trick. For example, if a program includes a helper tool, that tool may be the culprit. Closing the program may not solve the problem.

We’ve got a troubleshooting guide for finding out which apps are using the most percentage of processes on your computer.

Check Energy Consuming Apps

If you experience a fast drain on your MacBook’s battery, it may be caused by certain programs running in the background. While you may have intended to run something like Spotify, it is possible that you have a program open that you didn’t know about.

Apps using significant energy
You can quickly check to see which apps are using a significant amount of energy by left clicking on the battery icon in the upper right corner of your laptop’s tool bar. From the dropdown list, wait a few seconds until your Mac finishes collecting power usage information. Any apps that are using a lot of energy will be listed.

You can then find the app by searching in Finder and quit the program. Or, you can right click on the app to open Activity Monitor.

Since its debut in April, the new 12-inch Retina MacBook hasn’t seen that much in the way of functional, protective travel cases showing up either online or in brick-and-mortar stores. Fortunately, San Francisco-based accessory manufacturer Waterfield has released not just a single travel sleeve for Apple’s newest MacBook, but an entire line of bags and cases for early adopters of the device.

Waterfield Review 2
Waterfield sent me the “Dash MacBook Sleeve” to review, and the case is covered in a black ballistic nylon outer shell but houses a plush, smooth inner liner to ensure your brand-new MacBook won’t scratch or scuff while resting inside the case. The Dash’s backside comes packed with a mesh netting that will hold accessories like cables and headphones, and to ensure your MacBook doesn’t tumble out, there’s a single elastic band attached on top.

Waterfield Review 1
After a few days taking my MacBook around with the Dash sleeve, I barely have any big quibbles with the case. While certainly a downside for some, I found Waterfield’s decision to stick to stark, bare-bones color options — all-black or with a copper trim — refreshing over some of the more out-there case options on the market. Notable as well, the case barely gains any thickness while housing the Retina device, retaining the 12-inch MacBook’s sense of lightness even in a protected environment.

Tawfeek Barhom and Yaël Abecassis in Eran Riklis’ A Borrowed Identity, photographed by Eitan Riklis

The first film I ever watched by Eran Riklis was The Syrian Bride, starring Hiam Abbass and Makram Khoury. I remember how enthusiastic I was to finally learn something that wasn’t commonplace about the Druze community in the Golan Heights, through the work of this wondrous filmmaker. Fast forward to years later when, at a party, upon meeting a Syrian Druze gentleman I exclaimed “OMG, you must watch The Syrian Bride, it’s a gorgeous film about your community made by an Israeli director.” The man looked at me in disbelief and answered “What does an Israeli know about the Druze!” It was then that I first realized how our origin, our background affects what we’re allowed, and not allowed to talk about, even as artists.

Thanks goodness Riklis never got that memo!

From Cup Final to The Human Resources Manager, from Lemon Tree to Zaytoun, Riklis has always talked about the untalkable in his films: Peace, humanity, and the ability to discuss what makes us different, while also celebrating our contrasts.

I’m a year late in watching Riklis’ latest, A Borrowed Identity — also known as Dancing Arabs, the film’s original title at festivals around the world, and Mon Fils, “My Son” in its French incarnation. But better late than never in this case, because once again, I walk away from one of Eran’s films a different woman, a more informed person and a better human being. It’s become the norm for me with the work of the most open-minded, best cultural bridge-building filmmaker I know.

Typically, I would have watched a film like A Borrowed Identity in Cannes or Venice. But the film ends with such a provocative scene, an idea so unthinkable and bold that I can only imagine the programmers at those festivals scrambling to find words to explain their choices to the press. Simpler for them to just turn it down, quietly. So while it premiered at Locarno, where it was also not given the Golden Leopard it deserved for the same reasons, I assume, A Borrowed Identity traveled a different festival route, finding its biggest success in open-minded Telluride. Now, it is finally in US theaters, enjoying a second week at Lincoln Plaza in NYC, rolling out to West Coast theaters this weekend, and later across the US.

A Borrowed Identity opens with a line by Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish that goes “Identity is our legacy and not our inheritance; our invention and not our memory…” So why should where, how and who we are born decide what we can and cannot do? Unfortunately, not everyone in this world can make a choice, or even attempt to wonder aloud what I’m writing know. Palestinians and Israelis risk much when they do.

Riklis’ film begins slowly. But it builds momentum to a finish that left me and my viewing companion in sobs.

I’ll admit something that shames me, I might have left the theater in the first twenty minutes if I didn’t possess the faith I have in this filmmaker’s genius. The background about the family, the part that comes from the first of Sayed Kashua’s books to make up the storyline of A Borrowed IdentityDancing Arabs — didn’t envelop me right away. Perhaps I would have liked only a hint of the grandmother, as a voiceover, with the fated suitcase opening upon her death and the instructions carried out by her nephew, Eyad (played by the most charismatic acting discovery of the year, Tawfeek Barhom). The story could have started there for me, I didn’t need childhood scenes or interiors.

Yet once Kashua’s narrative from Second Person Singular kicked in, the film grabbed me wholeheartedly. There was no turning back, no turning away from that big screen even for a minute, only and completely with all my being following the triangle of Eyad, Yonathan (played to perfection by Michael Moshonov) and his mother Edna (played by one of my favorite actresses, the stunning Yaël Abecassis). What followed turned out to be, once again, one of those Eran Riklis masterpieces of endless possibilities.

Israeli Arab novelist and journalist Sayed Kashua also wrote the screenplay for the film, which may explain the indulgence of the family set-up. To a writer’s format such details are necessary, while in a film they can be done away with. Though Eyad’s father Salah’s efforts (played by Ali Suliman), to send his son off to an Israeli Hebrew school, clarify much and probably couldn’t be dealt with differently in the narrative.

In the end, A Borrowed Identity left me with more questions than answers, more thoughts than words. That’s what a great film should always do, while also helping its audience to understand themselves and the world around them just a little bit more. It’s a film full of courage, by a filmmaker who is unafraid and unapologetic about who he is. And perfect proof that our background, our birth-given opportunities have very little to do with the person we become, despite what the world wants us to believe.

Every year on the 5th of May, Americans consume tacos and tequila in honor of — wait, what is it for? … oh, really? — Mexico’s military victory over France in the Battle of Puebla. If you’re of Mexican descent, you’ve probably grown a little tired of U.S. stereotypes and misinformation about Cinco de Mayo. For the record, Mexico’s Independence Day is actually Sept. 16.

Well, now the poorly researched holiday shoe is on the other foot, so to speak. Check out this Flama original video in which Mexicans celebrate the 4th of July in the same way that Americans celebrate Cinco de Mayo.

The pair reportedly dated before Scott started a relationship with Kourtney Kardashian, with whom he has three children.

Most women would love to be compared to Angelina Jolie. But Veronika Black, who says she gets confused for the stunning actress on a daily basis, claims the resemblance makes it surprisingly difficult to find love.

The Canadian model told the Daily Mail that the Jolie comparisons began in 2011 after she first injected her lips. “It happened overnight,” Black told the Mail. “I was working as a shop assistant at the time, and I was just a regular girl on the tills, but suddenly people mistook me for Angelina Jolie. It was bizarre, but Angelina is absolutely gorgeous so I was obviously flattered too.”

The problem, according to Black, 27, is that men find her intimidating. “I think I scare men off. Men seem to be intimidated by the way I look,” Black told the Mail, adding: “I just want to find my Brad Pitt.”

Black told the Mail that mistaking her for Jolie, an ambassador for the UN, has even resulted in bizarre requests. “I’ve had all kinds of weird messages, but the one that really sticks out in my mind is an email from a man begging me to come and save his country,” Black said. “Luckily most of my mail is relatively normal.”

For a band that’s on the road more than 150 days a year, coming home is a big deal. Coming home to play for three days to a hometown crowd is even better.

That’s why three years ago members of The Steel Wheels started their own boutique, summer music festival in the shadow of Natural Chimneys Park in Mt. Solon, Virginia.

“Where we live has an effect on how we interact with the world around us and the relationships we form,” fiddler Eric Brubaker tells Whurk magazine. “We travel a lot, but the lifelines that sustain us are our families and communities back home.”

This year’s Red Wing Roots Music Festival is July 10-12. The name of this nascent event is a nod to the group’s 2010 album, “Red Wing” that included “Nothing You Can’t Lose,” which won Best Country Song at the Independent Music Awards. The Steel Wheels are a four-piece string band that has been described as making dynamic, yet soulful mountain music similar to Old Crow Medicine Show that blends old-time musical traditions with their unique stylings.

Following in the footsteps of other Americana groups such as Yonder Mountain String Band, which hosts a festival of its own each summer just outside Portland, Oregon, the members of The Steel Wheels — lead singer/guitarist/banjo player Trent Wagler, standup bass player Brian Dickel, mandolin player Jay Lapp and Brubaker — decided to stick close to their roots in Harrisonburg, Virginia, which lies in the breathtaking Shenandoah Valley.

Wagler tells Whurk: “We like the idea of creating a place where we can play our music and get our friends and fans to hangout for a weekend, but also getting to build a musical experience that’s larger than just us. We get to bring in artists that we love and that influence us, and the different sounds that we think everyone should be listening to.”

With an impressive lineup of 36 artists that include Robert Earl Keen, The Punch Brothers, Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, Aoife O’Donovan, The Wood Brothers, Nikki Lane, Elephant Revival and the Travelin’ McCourys, it’s clear Red Wing Roots has already hit its stride. That’s not by accident, says Jeremiah Jenkins, managing partner of Black Bear Productions, which works with The Steel Wheels to bring the festival together.

“We wanted to have good music, all day long, every day,” Jenkins explains. “We wanted to bring names that were worth seeing and would be a regional and national draw that would encourage people to drive two or three or six hours.”

MerleFest and Rooster Walk Music and Arts Festival attendees will also recognize RW veterans Stephane Wrembel and Sunliner and MerleFest performers Chatham County Line, The Honey Dewdrops, Jon Stickley Trio and Mandolin Orange.

In addition to four stages of music, the festival offers onsite camping, hiking, bike tours, yoga, art vendors, local craft beer and wine, a variety of food vendors from the area and a fiddle contest for youngsters, who get to join The Steel Wheels on stage at the festival.

“It’s a wonderful drive here and we have great B&Bs around for those who don’t want to camp,” Jenkins says. “We’re proud to bring people here. We also wanted this to be a cultural and economic boost for this amazing area.”

If you’re looking for more of a Bonnaroo or Stagecoach experience, this festival may not be for you. Despite the number of headliners, organizers plan to cap festival attendance at no more than 3,500 a day.

“The message we received the first year is please don’t let this get bigger,” Jenkins added. “It’s a clean, conscious, convenient, calm, family-friendly event and that’s the level we want to maintain. We don’t want lines or for people to have to wait.”

Taking a cue from its older cousin Floydfest, the festival is indeed family friendly; children 12 and younger go for free with a ticket-holding adult and tickets for teens 13-17 are $39 for the entire weekend, and daily arts activities — specifically for children — are available.

“We’re winning with Red Wing,” Jenkins adds. “We knew what level we wanted to produce it at and there’s been such a strong response, we know we are doing something right.”
