Although barcodes are currently utilized mainly to keep track of merchandise, they may soon also be used to detect counterfeit goods. We’re not talking about ordinary barcode labels, however. Instead, British scientists at Sofmat Ltd and the University of Bradford have devised a new 3D barcode that’s actually molded into plastic or composite items.
The second men’s semifinal at the U.S. Open Friday night will feature a pair of compatriots who know each other quite well.
No. 2 seed Roger Federer is a Swiss legend and easily one of the best men’s tennis players of all time. He continues to perform at an elite level and raise his game to new heights even after reaching an age (34) where most players of his stature had long declined.
He’s won 17 Grand Slams in his illustrious career—including five U.S. Opens, with the most recent in 2008—but hasn’t lifted a trophy in one of tennis’ marquee events since winning Wimbledon in 2012. It seems that we say this every time, but this could well prove his last best shot.
No. 5 Stan Wawrinka is just 3-16 in his career against his better-known countryman, but he does have a slight psychological edge coming into the match.
The Stanimal dropped Federer in straight sets earlier this year at the French Open en route to the second Grand Slam title of his career. One has to wonder if the elation of that victory for Wawrinka, and the sting for Federer, will carry over to their next meeting.
Our live coverage will begin shortly after the completion of the first men’s semifinal between No. 1 Novak Djokovic and No. 9 Marin Cilic.
After dropping his second EP, Liberty City Storiez, Karim is back with his first visual from the project, a cinematic-style drama for the title track, “Liberty City.”
“Liberty City,” produced by his brother Yaser, openswith darkly seductive ominous overtones that provide the perfect soundscape for Karim’s gritty, sordid lyrics. The imagery Karim conveys in his raps come to life vividly, even without the video’s glimpse into the shady underworld of New York City’s underbelly.
Watch the clip above, and let us know what you think. You can download the full EP here, or revisit his first project, Metropolitics, which has a more “backpack rap” sound, here.
There’s no denying the two are just completely head over heels for each other.
But even though their relationship seems rock-solid, the Sports Illustrated cover girl isn’t taking any chances when it comes to hired help. When revealing how to make things work in the future when kids are in the picture, she joked:
“No hot nannies, drivers or maids. It’s an ongoing joke in my house. I do want kids one day, so it’s something that I have to think about. But the rule is no hot nannies. I trust John, but you never know with these men.”
In light of Ben and Jennifer Garner‘s divorce drama, we have to say this is probably a good idea!
However, it seems Chrissy already slipped up, since her staff is pretty attractive. She explains:
“It’s too late for me though, because I have a hot assistant – she is cute.”
The 29-year-old also jokes that only hiring less-than-appealing employees might not be enough, commenting:
“These days, it doesn’t really matter what you look like – sometimes cabin fever just strikes and men do the do. I have to keep an eye on my assistant. No, damn. Christine, you’re done!”
LOL! She’s got quite the sense of humor, so we can’t imagine John could ever want anyone else!
Late August first announcements started circulating that Kanye West would be showing his YEEZY Season 2 collection during New York Fashion Week on September 11. As we got closer to the date, the likelihood of that happening got very small and first rumors of Kanye stopping his relationship with adidas, at least on the fashion side, started coming up. Today the official invitations to the YEEZY Season 2 show have finally come out, just hours before the much anticipated first public New York Fashion Week show. The YEEZY Season 2 show is scheduled for September 16 and will include a live performance by Vanessa Beecroft. The fact that it is not in collaboration with adidas, but sponsored by adidas, might mean that the apparel is in fact not anymore produced by the sportswear company, but that the partnership continues with the popular footwear. We can certainly not wait to see how this second show will turn out and will of course keep you posted about the turn-out.
Pre-schoolers at the Beth El Synagogue had all eyes on the shofar, introducing the new year, which starts Sunday at sundown.
“I learned about Rosh Hashanah. We dip the apples in the honey,” said one student.
The tradition symbolizes a wish for sweetness in the coming year.
The class of 3-year-olds also made a special sweet treat.
“Honey cookies!” said Oliver.
Rabbi David Schuck reminds families that Rosh Hashanah is a time to step out of the craziness of life, reflect and reboot.
“Example: say we want to spend time with children but when we do, we are constantly on technology and it’s interrupting time with our family,” Schuck said. “Come out of Rosh Hashanah with a plan to limit use of technology.”
In the Jewish religion Rosh Hashanah begins the 10 days of introspection and repentance, culminating with Yom Kippur.

Anyone who follows the NFL knows that J.J. Watt is a beast on the field, and those that follow Muscle & Fitness know he’s also a beast in the training room. The epitome of hard work, dedication and sacrifice, Watt leaves it all on the turf or in the weight room. While millions see him each Sunday, crushing quarterbacks and running backs, few see the amount of work he puts into his training to get the upperhand on the competition each week.
With the Houston Texan’s 2015 NFL season about to begin, fans of Watt are looking forward to the big man’s domination on the field. And while it helps to be 6’5″ 288 lbs., it takes a whole lot more to be a success at the highest level of the game.
Watt followed his dream to play pro football, and pushed himself to the limits to reach his objective. If enough time, sweat, and effort are put towards that goal, that lock in moment is achieved. “I wanted to be here, I thought I could be here, and I worked to be here, so I’m here,” says the standout defensive lineman.
