‘GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS’ Stephen Curry Makes Emphatic MVP Case by Prince Simon

The Golden State Warriors faced a stiff test in the Atlanta Hawks during the NBA’s Monday night slate.

They trailed by as many as 15 points in the first half, but it was a lead Atlanta would not have for long as Stephen Curry went nuclear, breaking out of what had been a bit of shooting slump to begin the season. Curry scored 50, putting on a show against Trae Young, whom many believe is the next in line to take over the mantle as best long-range shooter in the NBA.

It was a masterful performance by Curry, as he made 50 percent of his shots overall and 9-of-19 from the 3-point line. The rest of his stat line was stuffed as well, as he pulled down seven rebounds, handed out 10 assists, swiped three steals, and even added one block in 35 minutes of play. Curry got rolling from the start, going on a 10-0 run by himself, and carried that momentum throughout the game.

The fans at Chase Center chanted ‘MVP’ throughout the night, as Curry looks well on his way to competing for the award again this season Head coach Steve Kerr was in awe of the performance. “That was just a stunning performance by Steph,” coach Steve Kerr said.”… With his performance against the Hawks, Curry became the oldest player in NBA history at 33-years old to record a 50-10 game. The previous record was held by Wilt Chamberlain, who did it at 31-years old. It was also the 10th time in his career that Curry broke the 50-point mark, and he was the third Warrior to have a 50-point, 10-assist game, joining the aforementioned Chamberlain and Rick Barry.

SQUID GAME, DO THEY WANT TO CONDEMN VIOLENCE WHILE REVELING IN IT? (by Prince Simon)

Most of us have Netflix on our mobile phones and while it’s cheering that quite so many people are curious about a project that they are watching with subtitles, little feels novel about people flocking to a project that allows them to have it both ways.

“Squid Game”, created by Hwang Dong-Hyuk, depicts a competition with some 456 entrants, in which boundless wealth is made available to whoever survives a brutal gauntlet of fatal events. The violence is at once eerily intimate and impersonal. While there is a brutal frankness to the way the competitors’ lives are cut short, the shooters are masked game employees (or, in the case of Red Light, Green Light, a robotic doll).

What we gradually learn, through the device of a detective who is broken into the system, is that they are utterly bought-in , obeying rules of their own and believing rigidly in a game they have worked to present with a certain baroque innocence. Having now seen both the harsh realities they face in the game and at home, we are force to reckon with the notion that infinitesimal odds of survival in the Squid Game might just be better than none in modern society.

But this is a starting point from which the series does little in the way of development. This series amplifies itself endlessly, raising the stakes and the level of inhumanity. (It’s opening salvo of hundreds of dead bodies, seems difficult to top, but it gets over the line in demonstrations of players’ brutality, which alternates somewhat schematically with their startling shows of kindness).

As the series runs on, it becomes clear that the Squid Game exists for many reasons, including for the harvesting of human organs form the killed and to provide amusement for a chattering class of wealthy people some of them depicted as white Westerners who bet on the results.

About the first, there seems little to say, other than that it’s impressive that the series found a way to be even more affectedly direct and unbothered about showing ways the human body can come apart. A season-closing conversation between the game’s winner and it’s architect indicates that the game was, in its essence, designed for entertainment and to see if it is possible for people to be good. (He believes that they are not, despite having seen variations of the participants exhibiting team work, selflessness and cooperation but then, he was personally betrayed by the game’s winner, so his feelings maybe a bit raw).

This is maybe the point: “Those who play the Squid Game are subject to the banalest and juvenile philosophizing of those who, because of lucky breaks in life, get to determine everyone else’s reality. But taken on literal terms that the show burned through so much life and so much fake blood in order to stage a character-based investigation of goodness, then it really is no surprise that this show has taken off.

10 Lessons to be Learned in Watching “Third is My First”

This movie is about closure in a relationship.

But you should let it go. You can watch this again at netflix.

  1. Being sentimental person is ok but not to the point that you are holding the past like it’s your present but you’ll never realise that it’s not your future.
  2. A person is busy in his / her lifestyle, working and caring with the people surrounds them but deep inside, he / she still longing with something in the past that cannot move on.
  3. Life gets boring if you have routinary things everyday and you will used to it. But it will spice up with your partner to reminisce the happy moments and flare up the flame of love.
  4. It’s not true that if you love somebody and you broke up, you will no longer have feelings with that person. You still care though it’s not that kind of care like before when both of you are in that relationship.
  5. If you really love your spouse you are ready on how heavy the cross you will carry for a lifetime.
  6. There is no perfect relationship. Do not find your happiness with others. Open your mind because someone beside you really wants you, to make you happy.
  7. Sometimes two person are together because they really love each other. Sometimes they are together because they do not have choice and also they are in good terms for each other, as they need each other.
  8. Even you ask yourself many times, if you are happy on the person you have in your side. It will not be enough unless you will act and respond to take good care with each other. A love to a person is like a love to a plant, you need to give sunshine and water everyday. But do not give in 100% of your love to him/her, save some for yourself.
  9. Having an understanding partner is really a blessing and considerate of your happiness, because if you are happy he / she will be happy too.
  10. You will choose and weigh between, when things don’t work out, must be separate and have to move on. And if an old thing that still useful and you know that you can fix and believe that it will re-run again, you must have patience and determination to do it. We can associate this to marriage, if you want it to be last and stick to your wedding vows, do not give up easily, try to fix it and hold on to it. Believe that love and respect will conquer it all.
