    • Eventually, the sergeant was allowed to drive away while the biker was arrested.
    • Then an unarmed bicyclist was arrested, and not the angry man with the gun, because the angry man with a gun was also an off-duty cop.
    • The man who shot over 100 people and killed 49 in an Orlando nightclub Saturday worked at a retirement home as a security guard for G4S – a giant, often controversial global contracting corporation that provides mercenary forces, prison guards and security services. G4S is one of the world’s largest private security companies, with more than 620,000 employees and a presence in over 100 countries.
    • But one of Mateen’s former coworkers told the New York Times that he “saw it coming,” that Mateen “talked about killing people all the time,” and that he was “always angry, sweating, just angry at the world.”
      • You can raise your VDOT 1 point per weekSo 20 weeks = VDOT 60? Probably not. It’s not linear, you’ll see diminishing returns. Useful for now though.For now, stick with roughly 30 miles and 100 Daniels points. Improve organically with increasing long runs and faster training pace (more time at threshold).
    • It’s a thin, striking machine with 4K and HDR support, and a seriously attractive proposition for those that don’t have an Xbox One already. (By all accounts, that’s the vast majority of gamers). But then Microsoft did something crazy: It announced the next next Xbox, codenamed Project Scorpio. And now… why would anyone buy an Xbox One S?
    • Even if Blu-ray isn’t your thing, there’ll be 4K content from Netflix and Amazon Video. There’s also support for HDR gaming. It’s very much in its infancy, but Microsoft announced that Gears of War 4 and Forza Horizon 3 would support the wider color gamut it brings.
    • If you’re one of the 40 million-or-so people with a PlayStation 4, why not pick up an Xbox as a 4K-capable media player and take advantage of some exclusive games while you’re at it?
    • There are some nice features in the new Xbox One S, though. A built-in IR blaster will allow the One S to turn on your other devices, like your TV. Currently, the Xbox One can only turn on your TV if it supports HDMI-CEC. This also lets the One S control other devices like your A/V receiver or cable box. The new Xbox also has the power brick built into its body. Finally, the new Xbox controller will be Bluetooth, so you can connect it to your console as well as directly to your Windows 10 computer.
    • Operational reports provide the necessary data to keep the business moving forward.
