Winners take all – and keep it

Will “creative destruction” – capitalism’s ability to innovate, destroy and reinvent itself — eventually take care of the tech giants’ market dominance? This seems unlikely because the combination of winner-take-all factors is so powerful. For example, a challenger to Google in search would have to offer an incentive or a noticeably better experience to attract users, over a period long enough to break their Googling habit. This would take years and cost tens of billions, with little chance of success. Microsoft’s cumulative losses in search were estimated at $11 billion in 2013.

It is therefore hard to see the tech titans losing control of their core markets anytime soon. The partial exception is Apple. Still the most profitable company in the world, Apple now faces challenges as it is increasingly forced to include Google services in its ecosystem and its price premium over high-end Android devices is eroded. The other tech giants also face some competition at the margin of their core markets. For Google, the main direct threat is Amazon’s growing search business, as consumers looking for a product increasingly go direct to Amazon, possibly using its Echo smart speaker (and microphone!) and Alexa voice assistant. Similarly, in social media, users can “multi-home” – engage with more than one platform – enabling competitors to co-exist with Facebook. Nevertheless, following the pattern described earlier, there seems little chance of Google, Amazon, Facebook or Microsoft losing its global core market dominance in the foreseeable future.

Eclipse by a rival with a dominant share of a new and potentially bigger market is always a possibility, however. To head off this threat, the big tech firms invest heavily in emerging products and technologies, whether through their own R&D, by acquiring promising or threatening start-ups, or by replicating those that cannot be bought. Self-driving technology is a good example, with companies such as Tesla, Google and Apple jostling to capture the leading position in a high-stakes new market.

High prevalence of FASD, other impairments

Following the recommendations of the Royal Commission into the Protection and Detention of Children in the Northern Terrirtory, researchers said their study provided evidence to further change the way troubled youths were dealt with in courts and in detention.

ABC News: Gavin Johns

Of the 99 young people aged between 10-17 years who received a full assessment, almost all were male and 74 per cent were Aboriginal.

6. There are twice as many bathrooms as necessary.
In an America still highly segregated by race, the Pentagon’s planners found it necessary to design the building with separate facilities for black and white employees, including “white” and “colored” cafeterias for the construction crews and 284 bathrooms, twice the number needed for the anticipated staff levels. However, in June 1941 President Roosevelt issued Executive Order 8802, which prohibited segregation among federal employees. At first, Virginia authorities, determined to enforce the regulations laid out in its Jim Crow-era Separation of Races law, insisted that the facility be segregated, before finally relenting and ceding control of the Pentagon to the federal government. From its opening, all facilities were open to both black and white employees, making the Pentagon, for a time, the only non-segregated building in Virginia.

7. The building went up in record time.
The groundbreaking ceremony was held on September 11, 1941, and work quickly got underway, with more than 15,000 workers on site around the clock. The demand for office space was so great that the first workers moved in before the complex was fully finished, and many employees found themselves working in offices without walls and travelling around the complex on wooden planks laid across open construction pits. Construction wrapped up on January 15, 1943. It’s been estimated that under normal circumstances, construction should have taken four years—the Pentagon went up in just 16 months. This speedy construction was costly, however: The project was initially budgeted at $35 million, but wound up costing $63 million, more than $900 million in today’s money.

Nicole Kidman takes ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ on a dark ride and more

Nicole Kidman takes ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ on a dark ride and more

Could you use a bit of a retreat?

Stress that won’t let up is all around us, it seems (and has been for a very long time). So why not take a break and get into:

Three things to watch

‘Nine Perfect Strangers’

Speaking of retreats, Nicole Kidman stars as a guru at a facility that looks like part paradise, part horror film setting.

«Nine Perfect Strangers» reunites Kidman with author Liane Moriarty, whose book this series is based on. Kidman scored big with another Moriarty project, «Big Little Lies.»

This time, Kidman may freak folks out a bit as a mysterious wellness expert who oversees a resort where nine weary city dwellers (played by Melissa McCarthy, Bobby Cannavale, Regina Hall, Samara Weaving and others) come for some R & R.

Between this and «White Lotus,» I am seriously rethinking how «relaxing» these types of trips actually are in reality.

«Nine Perfect Strangers» is currently streaming on Hulu.

‘Marlon Wayans: You Know What It Is’

But let’s not forget his comedy roots.

If you need a few giggles, check out his stand-up special, «Marlon Wayans: You Know What It Is,» where he takes on everything from being part of a famous family to parenthood.

It’s currently streaming on HBO Max (which is owned by CNN’s parent company).


If you are a fan of Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard — or dark musicals — you may want to check this one out.

The pair star in «Annette,» a film about a comedian and opera singer who fall in love at the height of their careers and have a daughter named — you guessed it — Annette.

That’s pretty much all I can say without revealing any spoilers, but it starts streaming Friday on Amazon Prime.

Two things to listen to

Lorde already came for the «song of the summer» title with her «Solar Power» single, which also happens to be the title of her new album.

And unlike other artists who have been concerned about not being able to have massive stadium tours because of the pandemic, the New Zealander told The Wall Street Journal, «I don’t know if I’m ‘arena girl,’ you know?»

«I would be in the basement of a sports venue, showering in the basketball lockers — or, like, (the venue) would be named after a fast-food restaurant — and I’d just (think), ‘I don’t know if this is me,'» she said. «I’m an amphitheater girl. I’m a 150-year-old theater girl.»

The «Solar Power» album drops Friday.

It’s been a long time, Debbie Gibson.

Twenty years after «M.Y.O.B.,» Gibson has a new album titled «The Body Remembers.»

She told Billboard it’s «‘Electric Youth 2021’ in a lot of ways,» referencing her hit 1989 album.

There’s even a new version of her hit «Lost in Your Eyes,» this time as a duet with none other than Joey McIntyre from New Kids on the Block.

«The goal was to make an undeniably special, authentic, well-crafted and yet still raw album,» she said. «I feel great about the fact we found that. I feel like I’ve made an undeniable album.»

Way to take us back and bring us forward, Debbie. The new album is out Friday.

One thing to talk about

Dear Debra Winger, I dub thee the Queen of Shade.

When asked about her «Terms of Endearment» costar Shirley MacLaine, who played her mother, writing in her memoir that Winger once farted in her face, Winger is quoted as saying «Well, I have never known Shirley to tell the truth about anything» — though she did also add they are «loving friends.»

She also didn’t shy away from having called «An Officer and a Gentleman» costar Richard Gere «a brick wall.»

«I probably could have come up with something nicer,» she said, chuckling.

But it was the revelation that Winger quit the film «A League of Their Own» because they had cast Madonna that garnered the most attention.

Winger said she didn’t think the film paid enough homage to the legacy of the female professional baseball players for whom it was about, but also said she didn’t «begrudge» the cast who made the film with Geena Davis replacing her.

Winger had this to say about Madonna: «I think (her) acting career has spoken for itself.»

Something to sip on

I worry about Lizzo.

Now, I know it’s not really my place because we are not acquainted personally, but she brought us all in recently when she shared an emotional video on social media in which she accused people of being «racist» and «fatphobic» in how they have treated her.

I’ve written about the zaftig singer and the conversation regarding her size before, but apparently criticism ramped up after the recent release of her single «Rumors,» featuring Cardi B.

And while people could definitely stand to be nicer on social media, I hope Lizzo gives some consideration to whether or not she is making herself more of a target, given the frequent bare-booty photos and videos she has posted.

I’m all for self-love and celebrating bodies of all sizes, but many of us would love her regardless.

Lenticular Sclerosis in Dogs

Medical Conditions, Pet Services

What is lenticular sclerosis? —> —>

Lenticular sclerosis or nuclear sclerosis is the medical term for a bluish transparent haze that develops in the lens of the eye in middle-aged to senior dogs. This is considered a normal change in the lens associated with aging, and is observed as a cloudiness or bluish discoloration on the pupil.

«Vision does not appear to be significantly affected in dogs diagnosed with lenticular sclerosis.»

Vision does not appear to be significantly affected in dogs diagnosed with lenticular sclerosis. This condition is not the same as cataracts.

Cataracts are white and opaque and represent a change in the ability of light to penetrate to the retina. Cataracts cause diminished vision. Cataracts and lenticular sclerosis are two of the most common eye problems seen in dogs over the age of nine. Some estimates show the prevalence of lenticular sclerosis or cataracts at 50% in dogs over nine years of age and 100% in dogs over the age of thirteen.

«Lenticular sclerosis appears as an evenly gray, rounded opacity (cloudiness) in the center of the lens, and is most easily observed when the pupil is dilated.»

Lenticular sclerosis typically occurs bilaterally (in both eyes) and symmetrically in dogs. Lenticular sclerosis appears as an evenly gray, rounded opacity (cloudiness) in the center of the lens, and is most easily observed when the pupil is dilated. The opacity is often more dramatic when viewed from the side rather than from the front. When the eye is examined with an ophthalmoscope, the retina and fundus (back of the eye) can still be seen through the sclerotic lens.

What causes lenticular sclerosis?

While the exact mechanism is poorly understood, it appears that the lens gradually becomes harder with age. Lens fibers are produced throughout life, but the lens does not become bigger. It is believed that, as the central lens is compressed by new fibers deposited on the outer rings of the lens, the compression leads to hardening and lens becomes opaque.

Will my dog get cataracts? —> —>

Many dogs do develop age-related cataracts after having lenticular sclerosis. While the two seem related, there does not appear to be a causal relationship. This means that not all pets with lenticular sclerosis will develop cataracts. Senile cataracts form when the aging lens fibers degenerate. It is important to note that senile cataracts develop in many older pets, so the chances that your dog will develop lenticular sclerosis and/or a cataract is high.

How is lenticular sclerosis treated?

There is no specific treatment for lenticular sclerosis, nor is treatment necessary. Dogs diagnosed with lenticular sclerosis should be evaluated regularly to monitor for the development of cataracts. If a cataract develops, it can be surgically corrected, and this procedure should be pursued early in the course of the disease for best results.

Blackpool 2-3 Sunderland: Game at a glance as Aiden O’Brien’s hat-trick sends Black Cats through

Aiden O’Brien’s hat-trick saw Sunderland come from behind to beat Blackpool and progress to the third round of the Carabao Cup

  • 21:59, 24 AUG 2021

Aiden O’Brien completed his hat-trick in injury-time at Blackpool to send Sunderland though to the third round of the Carabao Cup.

The Black Cats fell behind when Shayne Lavery took advantage of some slack defending to put the Seasiders in front inside the first ten minutes.

But that lead did not last long, with O’Brien hauling Sunderland level almost immediately, with Dan Neil’s clever pass setting up the chance.

O’Brien and Nathan Broadhead both had chances to complete the turnaround before half-time, but the former shinned his shot wide while the latter fired tamely at the keeper.

Blackpool also had chances, the best of which fell to Sonny Carey but Bailey Wright was in the right place to clear off the line.

In the second half, Sunderland completed the turnaround when O’Brien’s deflected shot following a corner found the net.

Anthony Patterson late on to preserve his side’s lead, but sub Josh Bowler equalised for the hosts just two minutes from time.

Team news

Lee Johnson handed debuts to his newest signings, with Niall Huggins and Frederik Alves starting.

Former Leeds United man Huggins — who was today named in the Wales U21 squad — lined up at right-back, while on-loan West Ham defender Alves was included at centre-back.

Another new signing, on-loan Everton striker Nathan Broadhead, made his first start for the club.

Those trio were among seven changes to the side that beat AFC Wimbledon at the weekend with only four players — Anthony Patterson, Carl Winchester, Alex Pritchard and Dan Neil — retained from that starting XI.

The other players to come into the side were Dennis Cirkin, Bailey Wright, Jack Diamond, and Aiden O’Brien.

The seven who made way were Tom Flanagan, Callum Doyle, Luke O’Nien, Elliot Embleton, Lynden Gooch, Aiden McGeady, and Ross Stewart.

Blackpool boss Neil Critchley also made wholesale changes — in his case, nine from the side that drew 2-2 at Bournemouth on Saturday.

In came Dan Grimshaw, ex-Sunderland man Reece James, Sonny Carey, Shayne Lavery, Oliver Casey, CJ Hamilton, Dan Gretarsson, Cameron Antwi, and Richard Keogh, with Chris Maxwell, Callum Connolly, James Husband, Marvin Ekpiteta, Josh Bowler, Kenny Dougall, Grant Ward, Jerry Yates, and Keshi Anderson.

Tyreece John-Jules and captain Luke Garbutt were the only players retained from the weekend.

Blackpool: Grimshaw, Casey, Keogh, Gretarsson, Garbutt, James, Antwi (Bowler 69), Carey, Hamilton (Anderson 78), Lavery (Yates 78), John-Jules. Subs not used: Moore, Husband, Ekpiteta, Holmes

Sunderland: Patterson, Huggins, Alves (Doyle 75), Wright, Cirkin, Winchester, Neil, Diamond, Pritchard (Embleton 73), O’Brien, Broadhead (Stewart 73). Subs not used: Bond, Gooch, Taylor, Hawkes

Referee: Peter Wright (Merseyside)

Attendance: 5,756


O’Brien’s hat-trick goal. It came just minutes after Blackpool thought they had done enough to earn a penalty shoot-out, but O’Brien finished the tie in front of the Sunderland fans

Star man

Dan Neil was impressive, Anthony Patterson too, but this was hat-trick hero O’Brien’s day, and it was no wonder the Sunderland fans were singing his name at full-time

The draw for the third round of the Carabao Cup will take place on Wednesday, August 25, and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

It will be made following the conclusion of the televised second tie between West Bromwich Albion and Arsenal, with the draw expected to start around 10pm.

The draw is no longer regionalised from the third round stage onwards.

Third round ties are due to be played the week beginning September 20.


This was a game that could have gone either way, but the finishing power of O’Brien ensured it was Sunderland who go through to the third round.

Sunderland’s defending was ropey at times and they should have done better for both goals.

But, having got the right result, Lee Johnson will be happy with the way his young side performed, and with the debuts for Alves, Huggins, and the first start for Broadhead.

There were lots of positives to reflect on, aside from the scoreline.

Windies face tough chase in Kingston

Pakistan’s Shaheen Shah Afridi grabbed career best figures as the tourists dominated with bat and ball on the fourth day of the second and final test against West Indies at Sabina Park to put themselves on course to square the series.

Shaheen took 6-51 as the visitors bowled West Indies out for 150 shortly after lunch to ensure a 152-run first innings lead and then sped to 176-6 before declaring their second innings, to set the home side a target of 329 to win the test.

West Indies were 49-1 at the close in a test that has already lost a full day to bad weather yet still looks likely to produce a result.

Pakistan still need nine wickets while the home side require 280 runs in what would be a record-breaking run chase at the Jamaican venue.

The Windies won the first Test by one wicket.

White Ferns beaten in tour opener.

The White Ferns have been beaten by England A by four wickets in a 50-over warmup game in Derby.

Sixteen individuals tested positive for COVID-19 in the Premier League’s latest round of tests carried out on 3,060 players and club staff.

The third round of tests conducted between Aug. 16-22 showed an increase in infections after the English top flight recorded 20 cases in the first two weeks of testing.

Among the players who tested positive last week were Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic and Arsenal’s new signing Ben White, with both players missing yesterday’s clash which Chelsea won 2-0 to move to the top of the standings.

Arsenal forwards Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette were among club’s four positives a week ago, but Aubameyang returned to the side for the weekend’s clash.

Boucher admits singing offensive songs

South Africa head cricket coach Mark Boucher has apologised for singing offensive songs and using racist nicknames during his playing days in an affidavit submitted to Cricket South Africa’s Social Justice and Nation-Building committee.

Boucher was responding to allegations levelled against him by former spinner Paul Adams, who last month said at the hearings that he was subjected to racial discrimination and name-calling during his time with the national team.

While Boucher denied giving Adams the racist moniker, he did «apologise unreservedly for any offensive conduct, real or perceived».

«While at the time we thought it was playful banter within a team environment in which we all participated. I deeply regret and apologise for the part I played by joining in with my team mates in singing offensive songs or using offensive nicknames,» Boucher said in the 14-page affidavit.

Skipper Temba Bavuma confirmed that Boucher had spoken to the team, providing «clarity and context» on the charges against him.

South Africa travel to Sri Lanka for three ODIs and three T20s next month.

Ko climbs another spot

Lydia Ko has climbed another spot to now number the world number five ranked golfer.

Ko is taking some time off after competing at the British Open in Scotland last week where she finished in a tie for 29th.

Ko has had nine top ten finishes this year with one victory.

The 24 year old hasn’t been this high in the rankings since 2017 and dipped to as low as 55 in the world before her revival in the last couple of years.

American Nelly Korda remains number one.

Sporting memorabilia to be auctioned for Pele

Want a Brazil jersey owned by Pele? An All Blacks shirt signed by Dan Carter? A New York Yankees photo autographed by Derek Jeter? David Beckham’s AC Milan shirt?

Those items, plus others from Cristiano Ronaldo and Kylian Mbappe, are among 229 that will be up for sale next month at an auction organised by Pele for the foundation he created in 2018 to help underprivileged children.

The Brazilian, the only player to claim three World Cup winner’s medals and a man often called the greatest footballer of all time, said all monies raised will help Brazil’s fight against and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
