Time Is Up(2021)



Vivien is a high school student who loves math and physics. Steve is the clean-cut star of the high school swim team, and Vivien's boyfriend. Roy on the other hand is poor, has many tattoos, and is underperforming on the swim team. If he doesn't improve his times, he'll miss out on a college scholarship and be forced to work at his dad's garage.




Time Is Up(2021)



Vivien (Bella Thorne) is a high school student who loves numbers. She's studying physics and, in a voiceover, suggests that people are either like atomic particles, or not. TIME IS UP also focuses on two high school swimmers, Steve (Sebastiano Pigazzi), the team's fastest, and tattoo-covered Roy (Benjamin Mascolo), who lives on the wrong side of the tracks. If he can't improve his times, there's no hope of a college scholarship, he's often reminded, and he'll have to work at his dad's garage. Steve and Vivien are a couple, but Steve has been disappearing, not calling or texting when he should. Vivien suspects her mom is having an affair and trails her to find Mom indiscreetly making out with her boyfriend at a local restaurant. Vivien is less astute about her own love life and Steve's affair with his male swim coach. Roy has seen the pair kissing but keeps the information to himself, which doesn't prevent Steve from threatening Roy. When the swimmers head for a meet in Italy, Vivien hops on a plane to surprise Steve but ends up spending the day with Roy and kissing him. When she finds Steve, he's in bed with his coach and the trauma sends Vivien into a dark street, where she's hit by a car. How will everyone recover from this messy situation?


In her statement, Tchen noted that she spent her career fighting for positive change for women, including during her time as executive director of the Obama administration's White House Council on Women and Girls. And she said leading Times' Up since 2019 had been rewarding.


"Change will come when we move those who run companies to enact policies to make things better for women and other workers, and when legislators enact laws to further gender equity and safety," she wrote. "TIME'S UP's advocacy was based on that premise, that we cannot just shout on the outside for change without helping companies, government leaders and policy makers find the solutions to do better. Now is the time for TIME'S UP to evolve and move forward as there is so much more work to do for women. It is clear that I am not the leader who can accomplish that in this moment."


I'm a frequent contributor to the New York Times. I've written for the paper on everything from exclusives on new hotel openings such as the Crillon, in Paris, to breaking news travel stories like the immediate impact of hurricanes Maria and Irma on travel to the Caribbean. I also write for CNN.com, Bloomberg, Travel & Leisure and the New York Times Magazine. Contributing to Forbes.com is something of a homecoming for me: I was previously the site's full-time travel writer and am well versed in the world of luxury travel. I went to New York University's School of Journalism, but I believe that the best education for a travel writer is to...travel!


An accident will force 'Vivien' and Royan to come to a stop and reclaim their lives, one minute at the time, and finally start living in a present that perhaps will prove to be more exciting than any predefined.


Coal accounted for over 40% of the overall growth in global CO2 emissions in 2021, reaching an all-time high of 15.3 billion tonnes. CO2 emissions from natural gas rebounded well above their 2019 levels to 7.5 billion tonnes. At 10.7 billion tonnes, CO2 emissions from oil remained significantly below pre-pandemic levels because of the limited recovery in global transport activity in 2021, mainly in the aviation sector.


Despite the rebound in coal use, renewable energy sources and nuclear power provided a higher share of global electricity generation than coal in 2021. Renewables-based generation reached an all-time high, exceeding 8 000 terawatt-hours (TWh) in 2021, a record 500 TWh above its 2020 level. Output from wind and solar PV increased by 270 TWh and 170 TWh, respectively, while hydro generation declined due to the impacts of drought, notably in the United States and Brazil.


CO2 emissions in India rebounded strongly in 2021 to rise above 2019 levels, driven by growth in coal use for electricity generation. Coal-fired generation reached an all-time high in India, jumping 13% above its 2020 level. This was partly because the growth of renewables slowed to one-third of the average rate seen over the previous five years.


Marijuana Use: Past-year, past-month, and daily marijuana use (use on 20 or more occasions in the past 30 days) reached the highest levels ever recorded since these trends were first monitored in 1988. The proportion of young adults who reported past-year marijuana use reached 43% in 2021, a significant increase from 34% five years ago (2016) and 29% 10 years ago (2011). Marijuana use in the past month was reported by 29% of young adults in 2021, compared to 21% in 2016 and 17% in 2011. Daily marijuana use also significantly increased during these time periods, reported by 11% of young adults in 2021, compared to 8% in 2016 and 6% in 2011.


April is the time of year when San José Clean Energy (SJCE) solar panel customers will true-up their balances with SJCE for the year. If you used more electricity than your panels generated, you will see a charge in May. If you used less electricity than your panels generated, you will get a check in June.


We will true-up many SJCE customers for the first time this April. Several customers will see more than 12 months of SJCE true-up charges. Some may see as many as 20 months. This is because SJCE policy is to wait until customers have 10 months or more of billing history before their first SJCE true-up. This allows new solar customers to benefit from their NEM program in the summer, when excess credits are often generated, and in the winter, when credits are often used up.


In 1895, George Hudson, an entomologist from New Zealand, came up with the modern concept of daylight saving time. He proposed a two-hour time shift so he could have more after-work hours of sunshine to go bug hunting in the summer.


During the 1973 oil embargo, the United States Congress ordered a year-round period of daylight saving time to save energy. The period ran from Jan. 1974 to April 1975. The plan did little to save energy and lost popularity. In Oct. 1974, the U.S. switched back to standard time.

The split between mobile and computer screen time is almost equal in the US. On average, 3 hours 30 minutes are dedicated to mobile devices, while 3 hours 34 minutes are spent on computers.


Perhaps unsurprisingly, young people spend more time in front of screens than average. In fact, a recent study revealed that Gen Z spends around 9 hours per day looking at a screen - approximately 2 hours more than the US and global average.


"In the last four years, 19 states have enacted legislation or passed resolutions to provide for year-round daylight saving time, if Congress were to allow such a change, and in some cases, if surrounding states enact the same legislation," Jim Reed of the National Conference of State Legislatures told USA TODAY.


The Department of Transportation, which is in charge of daylight saving time, says the practice saves energy, prevents traffic accidents and curbs crime. But sleep experts believe the health effects of losing sleep eclipses the value.


The ultimate stumbling block for fans of year-round daylight saving time is the federal 1966 Uniform Time Act, which became law because of the random way states had been observing daylight saving time up until then. The act said states either have to change the clocks to daylight saving time at a specified time and day or stick with standard time throughout the year.


The only power individual states or territories have under the act is to opt out of daylight saving time, putting them on standard time permanently. That is practiced by Arizona, Hawaii, Guam, American Samoa, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.


Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., has been in favor of year-round daylight saving time for several years. His Sunshine Protection Act of 2019 was an effort to end the twice-annual time changes and keep daylight saving time year-round in his state and across the nation instead of the current eight months.


A press release from Rubio's office lists the advantages of permanent daylight time, including a reduction in car crashes, fewer cardiac problems and stroke, improved mental health, less crime, increased economic growth and increases in physical fitness.


"Opinions remain mixed on the benefits of permanent daylight time versus permanent standard time," Reed wrote in a blog post on the National Conference of State Legislatures website. "The Internet is rife with sites extolling both sides of the debate. That said, states continue to vote in favor of year-round DST as the new normal."


Still, the actual March and November time changes are almost universally reviled because of all the accompanying adjustments we must make, such as coming home from work in the dark and the slower-than-expected resetting of our internal time clocks, the legislatures conference said. 041b061a72
