The Three. Le Trois. El Tres

Happy Tuesday!

Here are the three articles that caught my eye!

I love you all!



P.S. There’s opportunity everywhere.


1) Words = $$$

Read this article to see how much your favorite actor/actress earns.

Per word:

Lucrative lines

2) Better standards = faster downloading speed

Tech’s impact on the entertainment world?

A codec standard (think of it this way. Imagine if you and a friend/partner/girlfriend/boyfriend/husband/wife/family members are using two soup cans. Attached to them is a piece of string. The longer the string (distance), the better you can hear the other person when they talk to you. The same idea applies to codec except (1) the signal is encrypted so no one can listen to your conversation and (2) you need software to decode it so you can hear and understand the other person).

From a tech POV? Standards mean that everyone is on the same page (similar to operating systems: if you use a Windows computer, you can use another one that has the same operating system without any problems). That’s my understanding of codec. Let me know if I’m wrong):

Versatile Video Codec (H.266) standard finalised

3) The clock on your wall

It’s all in your mind (re: where did time go when you decided to binge watch a show on Netflix).

P.S. It a good quiz. Share it with others:

Why time feels so weird in 2020


Stay at home workout

Take some plastic water bottles (2L soda, plastic/cardboard milk carton etc).

Cut a small hole in the cover.

Fill it with water.

Turn it upside down and place it next to your plants or trees in the garden = drip irrigation system = saves you time from watering your plants on a daily basis (check them in a day or two so you can move or refill the container)

The exercise will work on your strength, coordination and cardio 😉

P.S. If you’re using cardboard milk carton, you have two options:

A) you can poke a small hole at the bottom and fill it with water or

B) you can remove the plastic cover, fill it with water and put the cover back on. Don’t poke a hole at the bottom of the container.

If you use option A, place the container next to a plant.

For option B, flip it. Open the plastic cover a little bit until you see some water dripping out. Place it next to a plant.

P.P.S. If you’re using a milk carton that doesn’t have a plastic cover, go with option A. It’s easier.


Author: Research King

My real name is Nick but my clients call me the Research King. Why? Because I love researching and finding information. And they’re literally amazed when I find the information for them. I love analyzing how technology influences the media and entertainment world. Because the media and entertainment industry is constantly changing. And technology is playing a big role in changing it (from CD’s to live-streaming). Finally, I love coffee, going to the gym/working out and anything to do with athletic leisure clothing (I’m a big Lululemon fan). P.S.
