Dance music these days is all about the drop. You move and shake while the music picks up, before going absolutely nuts as the bass kicks in. Its formulaic and boring when everything is so similar. In response, Reddit user mrdvno, a former DJ, set out to create some of the worst drops ever in parody. The results are pretty hilarious.You can see the complete collection at the user’s Soundcloud, which has since become wildly popular, with some drops getting over 200,000 views. We’ve also selected some of the best ones below for you to check out.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today reported that 45 more people in 19 states have fallen ill with Salmonella poisoning since the CDC’s last update on Mar 15.The agency has now confirmed 132 cases in 32 states tied to the use of kratom, an herbal alternative to opioids. Thirteen states have reported their first infections, bringing the number of affected states to 38.Forty percent of patients (38 of 96 with available information) have required hospitalization, but no deaths have been reported in this outbreak, the CDC said. The update comes just days after the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a mandatory recall for all powdered kratom products from Triangle Pharmanaturals, the first-ever mandatory recalled issued by the FDA for a food product. The FDA issued the recall after the Las Vegas–based company failed to voluntarily recall kratom products.On Apr 3, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, MD, said, “This action is based on the imminent health risk posed by the contamination of this product with Salmonella, and the refusal of this company to voluntarily act to protect its customers and issue a recall, despite our repeated requests and actions.”It is not yet known if any Triangle products are involved in the current outbreak.Outbreak concentrated on West CoastThe CDC said illness start dates ranged from Jan 11, 2017, to Mar 20 of this year, and any cases occurring on or after Mar 14 may still not be reported. The CDC identified multiple strains of Salmonella involved in the 132 cases: Salmonella I 4,,12:b:- (61 cases), Salmonella Javiana (15), Salmonella Okatie (21), and Salmonella Thompson (35).”Despite the information collected to date about where ill people purchased kratom, a single common brand or supplier of kratom has not been linked to the outbreak. CDC continues to recommend that people not consume kratom in any form because it could be contaminated with Salmonella and could make people sick,” the CDC said.Fifty-seven (73%) of 78 people interviewed reported consuming kratom in pills, powder, or tea in the weeks prior to illness. Kratom is touted as both an herbal stimulant and pain killer, and it is often purchased online and consumed in powder form. Most cases (54%) have occurred in men, with Washington, Oregon, California, and Idaho each reporting eight or more cases. Washington, with 13, has the most cases.Whole-genome sequencing performed on isolates taken from 60 patients has shown no signs of antibiotic resistance, the CDC said.See also:Apr 6 CDC update Apr 3 CIDRAP News story “Tainted kratom prompts first mandatory FDA food product recall”
The Court of Arbitration for Sport have rejected Munir El Haddadi’s appeal to change nationality to Moroccan so he can go to the World Cup, after he previously played for Spain. Upd. on 15/05/2018 at 18:23 CEST IN SPORT.ES El TAS ha hablado: Munir se queda sin Mundial Munir and Morocco appealed against FIFA’s decision on March 13 which rejected his attempt to switch. Born to Moroccan parents on September 1, 1995 in Madrid (El Escorial), the forward has double nationality and made his Spain debut on September 8, 2014 under Vicente del Bosque. He featured in the qualification phase of Euro 2016, as Spain thrashed Macedonia 5-1. EFE/Sport EN RELATED STORIES 14/05/2018 From then Munir, playing at Alaves, has not been given more chances to play for Spain but FIFA did not let him switch to Morocco. Curiously they are in the same group, so he could have ended up playing against the country he has already played for. Official: Thomas Tuchel is the new coach of Paris-Saint Germain

Shanghai officials reveal novel coronavirus transmission modes MOST READ Senators to proceed with review of VFA EDITORS’ PICK Jamaica’s Usain Bolt wins the men’s 100-meter final during the athletics competitions of the 2016 Summer Olympics at the Olympic stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Sunday, Aug. 14, 2016. APKINGSTON, Jamaica — Usain Bolt is now a movie star. He refuses to say he’s an actor.Such a distinction is important for the Jamaican sprinting great and nine-time Olympic champion. Until his competitive career ends next year, Bolt will continue playing only one role — that of the world’s fastest man, someone who beat the odds to acquire immense fame and fortune on his way to becoming one of the biggest stars in global sport.ADVERTISEMENT There are also some moments where that megawatt smile isn’t present. Yes, even Usain Bolt can have a tough day.“You have to ask yourself, why am I doing this? I’ve done everything. I’ve done it many times,” Bolt said. “I have nothing else to prove.”Not now, he doesn’t.The triple-triple was the capper to a storied Olympic career. He’s the world-record-holder in the 100- and 200-meter dashes, and anchored the fastest 4×100-meter relay in world history as well. But without those three golds from Rio de Janeiro, Bolt would have felt somewhat unfulfilled.“I wanted to be one of the greatest,” Bolt said. “I wanted to be among the greats. Without this Olympics, I would be great, yes. But I don’t think I would be in the bracket of Muhammad Ali, Pele and the great footballers. That’s what I want.”Bolt’s plan is for the world championships next year in London to be his final meet.From there, who knows.He’s already well set-up as a businessman, with endorsement deals around the globe and other investments — such as a restaurant not far from Jamaica’s National Stadium in Kingston, an eatery where a two-lane track is stenciled on the floor around the bar. He’ll consider dabbling with other sports, and he has a clear desire to play soccer. He might coach. He will not be a politician.And he’s already been approached about acting. For the record, Bolt says the actor who could play him best is Denzel Washington, and he counts “2 Guns” as one of his favorite movies.“People always say it was ‘Training Day,’” Bolt said. “But I loved ‘2 Guns’ because it was different.” We are young Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

I love the pressure. And I have all the confidence in myself and my coach and the team I have that it would come true for me. The pressure was there, but the confidence was always there — which made it much easier.”Bolt agreed to make this film after realizing that he would be able to convince both his fans and his detractors that what they see on the track — a free-spirited showman who tries to be stoic and serious only when absolutely necessary — is what they would get if they tagged along with him on a typical day.He shows off some of the spoils of his life, whether it’s the party scene or traveling or enjoying luxury. He also shows how all that is possible, with 5:30 a.m. workouts that he groaned through and the rigors of what’s needed to keep an elite athlete in top physical condition.“I live a simple life, you know what I mean?” Bolt said. “One of the things that made me really want to do this was people always saying: ‘Aw, this is not really who he is. He’s not always laughing. It’s not always fun for him.’ This is who I am. I really wanted to show people this is who I am. I like to have fun. I like to chill. I like to go out. That’s just a part of me. The part that people don’t see, that’s the part I want to show people behind the scenes, the hard work.”ADVERTISEMENT As fate of VFA hangs, PH and US forces take to the skies for exercise He wanted this movie to be different as well.“I tried to talk about what I’m feeling, what I’m thinking,” Bolt said. “That’s what I really try to portray. I never try to be unoriginal.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next PH among economies most vulnerable to virus As such, it’s not a made-for-Hollywood version of himself that takes center stage in the documentary “I Am Bolt,” which is being released Monday. As the title wants viewers to believe, the Bolt who is in the film is the very same one that his friends, family and other members of his close-knit inner sanctum have seen for as long as they’ve known him.“I wasn’t an actor,” Bolt said. “I wasn’t trying to push a different person forward.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra teammates show love for SlaughterSPORTSWe are youngSPORTSFreddie Roach: Manny Pacquiao is my Muhammad AliThis is Bolt, a behind-the-scenes view of the superstar that took about two years to make and has him holding the camera at times. The idea in large part surrounds Bolt’s quest for the so-called triple-triple — three gold medals in three events at three consecutive Olympics, something no sprinter in the history of the sport had ever accomplished.He pulled it off, to little surprise, at the Rio Games.
Share This!Last week we asked. “if you could only have a day parade or a night parade at Walt Disney World, which would you prefer?.” And you answered here on the blog and on Twitter.RESULTSDay – 398Night – 1700 ✅And the clear winner was the Nighttime parade. Whether it’s SpectroMagic or the Main Street Electrical Parade, there’s just something iconic about a parade at night.Some of you had commitment problems and said a “day parade during the cooler months and a night parade during summer.” Others made the very valid point that day parades cut into your napping and pool time.SpectroMagic. Awesome and frightening nighttime parade. © DisneyIt’s strange to realize that there is currently no nighttime parade at Walt Disney World. And no parades at all outside of Magic Kingdom. If Festival of Fantasy doesn’t do it for you, Paint the Night returns to Disney California Adventure April 13! Or hop across the ocean to see Tokyo Disneyland Electrical Parade Dreamlights at Tokyo Disneyland park.And don’t forget the parade on the Seven Seas Lagoon – the Electrical Water Pageant. There aren’t many things at Walt Disney World that are still running since 1971, but this is one. Sure there have been a few changes. And maybe Was (Not Was) wasn’t a cultural touchstone when “Walk The Dinosaur” was added to the soundtrack seven years after it was barely a hit. It’s still a delight.Want more nighttime parade goodness?

Open, efficient communication drives innovation in the modern workplace, where it can facilitate knowledge transfer and problem-solving, reduce uncertainty, and break down geographic and managerial hierarchies.And communication is no longer limited to email and the telephone. With the advent of a variety of collaboration tools such as Workplace by Facebook, Yammer, or Microsoft Teams, communication is taking place in countless ways across a variety of platforms.Risky Employee Behavior in Private MessagesOut-of-the-box, many of these platforms don’t provide administrators easily-accessible visibility into private employee messaging. That leaves leaders to ask unanswered questions about what employees are discussing. Is it always work-related? Is confidential information being shared with the wrong people? Are there any inappropriate work communications occurring?These are valid concerns, given that 43% of all employee messages are private.This is why our data science team took on the challenge of analyzing over 1,000,000 employee communications—both public and private—to understand what type of employee communications are being shared on these platforms.What We FoundWhile toxic behavior such as workplace harassment, discrimination and inappropriate behavior is relatively rare in the workplace (as it should be!), our team found that risky human behavior is unpredictable and still exists in the workplace communication environment. And if it does, unfortunately, it is 250% more likely to exist in a private 1-to-1 chat than in a public environment. We also found that private messages can provide incredible insights to HR leaders into the overall sentiment and mood of an organization. Employees who only communicate via private messages—and that’s 1 out of every 7 workers—are 245% more likely to send negative scoring messages. One bad apple can poison an entire bunch and when dealing with employee negativity and mood, it’s important to identify the issue early in order to respond appropriately. Without visibility into private communications, this would be nearly impossible to identify on any of the leading collaboration platforms.The Need to Identify Behavior and Sentiment Before Issues Proliferate Out of ControlOrganizations need to track the sentiment and tone of both public and private conversations in order to get a true pulse on the health of their community and assess any areas of potential risk—and they need to do this efficiently without disrupting an already overworked team.With all of the benefits that come with new collaboration programs, comes the risk of unpredictable human behavior. As HR professionals, the job is to protect and support your company’s most important assets: its people. As a data scientist, I believe that any decision should be backed by some sort of evidence. In this work, you must start with an awareness of what is being said on any company-sponsored communication platform. And that includes private employee communications.Originally posted on Workology blog.
