The aforementioned clip was shared on Twitter by a page called Gators Daily. And must we add, it is nothing less than a spectacular moment.

“Croco races speedboat (sic),” the caption for the video reads. Without any further ado, watch it here:

The point-of-view footage was shot by a person riding on the speedboat. At first, one could only see water around. However, after a few moments, a crocodile emerged from the water body and was seen racing with the boat. The crocodile swam really fast and tried hard to defeat the boat in the

How to make video meetings more like in-person experience? Add social hours, games, trivia and fun

Camille Schmidt was recently asked at a meeting to share something about her that no one at the company knew. As opposed to the previous meeting, when she needed to announce a hidden talent her co-workers weren’t aware of.

If it sounds like getting-to-know-you day at school, it should. The intent among leaders at Philo, a TV streaming company, is to humanize the dry video meeting and make them come to life.

Meetings “will never be the same as in person, but this way continues to make us a cohesive group,” says Schmidt, a communications manager for Philo. “It’s the social hours that really connect us as a company. We have 10 new hires that have come aboard since the pandemic. And I feel like I know them, even though I’ve never met any of them in person.”

If our reality is a video game, does that solve the problem of evil?

Pandemics and natural disasters cause pain and suffering to millions worldwide and can challenge the very foundations of human belief systems. They can be particularly challenging for those who believe in an all-knowing and righteous God. The Lisbon earthquake of 1755, for example, shook the previously unquestioned faith of many and led Voltaire to question whether this really could be the best of all possible worlds.

When the Spanish flu struck in 1918, some chose to see it as divine punishment for the sins of mankind and looked to prayer, rather than science, for salvation. Notoriously, the Bishop of Zamora resisted calls from the Spanish authorities to close his churches and instead insisted on holding additional masses and processions.

From a theological standpoint, natural disasters and pandemics inevitably raise the profile of the long-standing and much-debated “problem of evil”. Here is philosopher Galen Strawson’s take on the problem:

Jeffree Star broke his silence over the weekend.

Jeffree Star / YouTube

  • Jeffree Star released a 10-minute YouTube video on Saturday called “Doing What’s Right,” where he vaguely apologized to James Charles.

  • The video follows Star’s month-long hiatus from the internet since Karmegeddon had people wanting some accountability from huge online celebrities like Star and Shane Dawson for problematic behavior in their pasts.

  • He said this video was the start of a “new chapter.” But as many commentators and YouTubers have pointed out, Star has been starting new chapters periodically throughout his entire career.

  • While he claimed to be taking responsibility for his past, Star left out a lot of specifics in his apology video, including the main accusations against him and Shane Dawson from Tati Westbrook, his problematic past, and the end to his partnership with makeup brand Morphe.

John Oliver slams Trump for pushing conspiracy theories about coronavirus [Video]

On Last Week Tonight With John Oliver Sunday, Oliver slammed President Trump for pushing baseless conspiracy theories. In the past, Trump has claimed that former president Barack Obama was born in Kenya, Hillary Clinton got millions of illegal votes in the 2016 election, in which she won the popular vote, and he flirted with the conspiracy that the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was murdered. Just last week, Trump retweeted a tweet from former game show host Chuck Woolery claiming that the coronavirus is just a big lie meant to hurt Trump’s chances of re-election. The day after Woolery’s tweet, his son tested positive for COVID-19, and after posting that it is indeed real, Woolery’s Twitter account disappeared. Trump defended retweeting the conspiracy.

“I didn’t make a comment,” Trump told CBS News’s Catherine Herridge. “I did. I reposted a tweet that a lot of people feel. But all I

PowerPoint is an incredibly useful tool for giving presentations. With the click of a button, you can control how fast or slow you want the slides to progress, and when other extras like music or animation come in. 

However, if it is not your intention to give your presentation live and in person, this fact can be more of a hindrance than a help. If you intended, for example, to email it to your coworkers, or to post it online, it might be more helpful to simply have your PowerPoint be a video that people can press play on and simply sit back and watch.

Luckily, this is something that the Microsoft Office team has already thought of, and they make it just as easy to save your PowerPoint as a video as
