Box office: ‘F9’ rules on the 4th of July weekend as ‘Boss Baby 2’, ‘Zola’ has a strong start

It’s not going to be a weekend for the record books, but this year’s Christmas box office on July 4th is a significant improvement over the 2020 edition. The box office boost is thanks to a trio of new films, the kid-friendly “The Boss Baby: Family Business,” the gruesome thriller “The Forever Purge” and the satirical comedy “Zola”, each of which appeal to a completely different cinema audience. A number of holdovers, namely “F9: The Fast Saga” and “A Quiet Place Part II”, also support domestic revenue.

NICK STROBEL: Moon will not dim July 4th fireworks | Leisure

Happy Independence Day! Tomorrow is Aphelion Day, when the Earth is furthest from the Sun at just over 94.5 million miles.

The extreme heat wave in the Pacific Northwest a few days ago clearly shows that the distance between the earth and the sun is not the reason for the seasons. Unfortunately, it is very likely that heat waves like the one we had last week will be more frequent.

We can handle very hot days here in the Central Valley because most of our homes and businesses have air conditioning (while electricity is still running), but most places in the Pacific Northwest don’t have air conditioning.

When my wife came home from a trip to the east late at night, she pointed to a bright star in the southeast and asked if it was Venus. Reasonable guess because the star is very bright, but Venus is now our “evening star”, visible deep in the west shortly after sunset.

The bright star we saw at almost 1 a.m. is Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system, but because of its great distance from us, it appears weaker than Venus. A large brownish-yellow waning domed moon also appeared just above the horizon, one day from the third quarter.

The moon tonight will be a waning crescent so the moon won’t wash away any of the fireworks. The moon will be in the new moon phase on Friday and the first quarter will take place on July 17th. That said, there are some nice shots of a waxing crescent moon next to bright Venus in the evening next week.

July 11th will be especially great because Venus is right next to Mars (about a thumb’s breadth at arm’s length to the right of Mars). A little further to the right is a thin waxing crescent moon. All three may just barely fit in the same field of view of your binoculars.

The following night, July 12, Venus is only a little finger away from Mars, but the moon does not fit into the field of view of the binoculars.

Remain skeptical

My last trip included a night in Washington, DC, and one place we visited was the International Spy Museum. The various tour websites say it takes people an hour or two to get through, but it took my wife and I more than four hours just to do the first floor and we had to rush through the second floor to give us time Had to grab a quick bite to eat before heading to the airport. We read all the signs in museums.

One of the messages from the ISM was to draw reasonable conclusions from incomplete data and not know the full context of your data, a context that can radically change the meaning of the data.

It made me think of all the media hype surrounding the recent report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence on UFOs (also referred to in the report as “unidentified aerial phenomena”). There have been over 140 sightings referenced in the report since 2004, all but one that the experts called in by the US government cannot explain.

This media noise is of course due to the fact that many people are very willing to make a big logical leap from the “unidentified flying object” to immediately identify it as an alien alien spaceship without considering more prosaic explanations.

The saying “extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence” means that the burden of proof rests on those who make claims about alien alien spaceships. You have to prove that the UFO cannot be anything but an alien alien spaceship. (For more information on this burden of proof, do a Google search for “Sagan Invisible Dragon”.)

People from all demographic categories have seen UFOs, but it is people from the United States who report the vast majority of sightings. The reasons most of the sightings reported are from those in the US is because of our very strong individualistic culture, which focuses on individual experience and expertise; our distrust of the federal government (often for very good reasons); and people here believe we live in a country with a technology that is superior to any other country. People in other countries who see a UFO are more likely to attribute it to new US war technology than to an alien spaceship. Context makes a big difference in how data is interpreted.

While as a skeptic of UFOs as extraterrestrial extraterrestrial spaceships I don’t have to disprove the hypothesis, I’ll point you to a nice one-sided guide to extraterrestrial UFOs published by Andrew Fraknoi bit.ly/ufoskeptic and Mick West’s investigation into the Navy videos of the strange phenomena that have featured in the media several times (see Fraknoi’s list for the links). Spoilers: The videos that are making the rounds in the media can be explained by definitely mundane and boring things, including camera optics artifacts.

White Sox Betting: The Sharp Cash Marketplace for July 4, 2021

The White socks and Detroit Tigers will wrap up a three-game weekend series on July 4th, and the first two games were highly rated. Chicago’s bats were against that in their previous series Minnesota twins, and that trend continued when they traveled to Motor City.

Even if the Tigers are still far behind the White Sox in the AL Central classification, they were an entertaining team and a personal competition favorite for me. Let’s break down the most attractive betting angle for the final game in this series.

The listed pitchers

Lucas Giolito (6-5, 3.84 ERA) will take the hill for the White Sox during this matinee game. In his last start against the Minnesota Twins, he was marked for three deserved runs and managed only one strikeout despite six innings. Nevertheless, he won the last time. If Giolito’s material isn’t what it should be on Sunday, he’ll have to expect more from his teammates, as they averaged 4.39 run support on his starts.

Rookie Matt Manning (1-2, 8.16 ERA) is called for the Detroit Tigers. It was disastrous on his last start against Cleveland, a 13-5 game in which Manning gave up nine deserved runs. He still has time to turn his season around but the early returnees are not promising. He hasn’t lasted more than 5 2⁄3 innings in the three games he started in 2021, but he managed to get 5.54 runs per game in support. If he can limit his mistakes against a dangerous White Sox lineup, there’s a good chance his team can handle the rest.

The hot hitters

The White Sox have been getting a lot of performance out of their seasoned players as well as their rookies lately. Although their winning streak ended 11-5 at Comerica Park on Saturday, the bats were impressive. The newcomers of infielder / outfielder Gavin Sheets and third baseman Jake Burger were silenced on Saturday, but otherwise they produced offensively. Last week, Sheets became the first Sox player to score at least one hit and RBI in each of his first four career games, while Burger had two hits on his debut.

In the game against Detroit on Saturday, the White Sox were able to develop an early lead thanks to Tim Anderson’s two doubles and two runs, Leury García’s two-run homer and the two RBIs from the great José Abreu. It would be easy to convince yourself that the White Sox’s last game was an aberration during a great, victorious baseball route.

The selection

For my money, I have to bypass the running total, which is currently 8.5 runs (-122). The Tigers are very unpredictable, and you never know if it will be one of their games that has three runs – or almost 20. I trust an exceptionally good line-up of the White Sox to take advantage of Matt Manning and knock him out early on in the game. If the Tigers’ staggering offense makes you pause, I would also recommend the White Sox Run Line bet (-1.5, -102).

Here are the top news, trends, and analysis investors need to start their trading day:

1. Stock futures flat before the job report in June

Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange on November 4th. 2020.


US stock futures were flat on Friday morning before the release of the June key job report, scheduled for 8:30 a.m. ET. All major street indices closed on Green Thursday as Wall Street got off to a positive start into the second half of 2021 after a strong first half. The S&P 500 rose by 0.5% to 4,319.94 and thus reached the sixth record high in a row. The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 131 points, ending the session at 34,633.53. The 30-person Dow is up three in the last four sessions, and is at its highest level since June 4th. The tech-heavy Nasdaq rose 0.13% to 4,522.38 on Thursday. The key averages are all positive for the week and at the level of their second consecutive weekly gain.

All eyes are on the June job report as investors seek further insight into the US labor market’s recovery from the rubble caused by the coronavirus pandemic. So far it has improved more slowly than expected. According to the Dow Jones, economists estimate 706,000 non-farm jobs were created in June and expect the unemployment rate to have fallen from 5.8% to 5.6%. The average hourly wage is said to have increased by 0.3% in June compared to May and by 3.6% year-on-year. Labor Department employment reports for April and May fell short of Wall Street’s expectations.

3. Robinhood applies for the highly anticipated IPO

In his eagerly anticipated IPO on Thursday, Robinhood Markets announced that it has 18 million retail clients and more than $ 80 billion in client assets. The free stock trading pioneer said it was profitable in 2020, posting net income of $ 7.45 million on net sales of $ 959 million as the number of accounts funded more than doubled that year. In 2019, Robinhood lost $ 107 million on net sales of $ 278 million.

Robinhood ended the first three months of this year in a loss of $ 1.4 billion, related to the emergency funding it closed during the peak of the Reddit-fueled GameStop madness in January. Revenue for the quarter rose 309% to $ 522 million, compared to $ 128 million in the first quarter of 2020. Approximately 38% of Robinhood’s revenue comes from options trading accounts. Stocks make up 25% of sales, while crypto makes up 17%.

Founded in 2013, the company plans to raise $ 100 million when it goes public. It intends to list on the Nasdaq and trade under the ticker “HOOD”.

Toyota engine more vehicles sold in the US than General Motors in the second quarter and therefore for the first time in the three-month reporting period. On Thursday, Toyota announced it had sold 688,813 vehicles in America from April to June, narrowly ousting GMs 688,236 vehicles. Toyota’s results exceeded analysts’ expectations; GMs fell short. Toyota may become the best-selling automaker in the US, depending on where Ford’s results come in. GM’s Crosstown rival reported the number on Friday morning, and analysts are forecasting US sales of 645,000 vehicles in the second quarter. The last time GM wasn’t America’s best-selling automaker for a quarter was in the third quarter of 1998 when Ford oversold them, according to Edmunds.

The automotive industry has coped with semiconductor shortages and messed up production schedules at a time when consumer demand for new vehicles was strong. Toyota and other Japanese automakers have weathered the chip crisis better than their US rivals so far.
