Devin Booker of the Phoenix Suns scored 70 points in an NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics.
He accomplished something that not even the great Michael Jordan has ever done.
To put that milestone into perspective, only 5 other players have ever scored at least 70 points in a game. Devin Booker joined the likes of:
1. Wilt Chamberlain
2. David Robinson
3. David Thompson
4. Elgin Baylor
5. Kobe Bryant
What makes this feat even more amazing is that Booker is just 20 years old. What makes it even more amazing is that it was on the second night of a back-to-back.
Overall, Booker's stat line read: 21-40 shooting overall, 4-11 from 3-pointer's, and 24-26 from the free throw line. He s
No I am not talking about the ability to earn money from blogging and interacting on a social media site, although that is definitely a strong selling point.
There is something very compelling about the platform that goes right along with it being built on top of a blockchain. It has the ability to keep a record of my life.
If you are like most people, you want there to be a record of your life. That is why we love taking pictures and watching home movies about ourselves or our family.
Ideally that record would be recorded by others because of some profound difference that we made upon the world, but for most of us that likely won't be the case.
That is where keeping a record of our own life comes in.
Being built on a blockchain, Steemit.com has the ability to record all the little (or big) things about my
Both these processes act synergistically to impair the functioning of our cells and may also increase the risk of certain types of disease.
Previous research has found that levels of something called NAD+ (oxidised nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) decline with age and that this seems to result in an impairment of DNA repair mechanisms.
I don't often get that angry these days. I can't really attribute it to any meditation practice, as I've repeatedly failed to exercise the discipline to do the regular meditation I probably need to cultivate a consistent peace of mind & soul. Maybe it's just a part of maturity, to not get rattled as easily as I used to in my youth. Whatever the case, it takes a fair amount to get me heated up at this point. And yesterday, I got boiling.
A few hours later, the wave of heated upset subsided. Yet, there's still some residual needing venting. And what better way to release than a public publication of a story worth sharing...
I'm not sure there is any final moral of the story. There may be lessons in the experience for me, and perhaps some reflections that could be valuable to some reading. Though I guess the point in sharing - besides just 'blowing off some steam' (no pun intended) - is to contribute to a dialogue about CHARACTER and CONDUCT. These are topics its taken me years to better understand. And someti
Doesn't that ever happen to you where you get on a particular food kick? Or like when you find a good restaurant, you wear it out, like you eat there three times in one week?
It happens to be Autumn here in Southern Chile, and I have access to a lot of pumpkin.
So, as they say,
make hay while the sun shines, I think I'll make pumpkin while they are plentiful.
One thing I have learned about living in Chile, if you see something you want, get it. You can't go on the notion that it will be there the next time you come back.
As Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms continue to seemingly crackdown on the individuals who are using their platforms to promote terror propaganda, it's been pushing those individuals to embrace a new platform in order to communicate. One of the platforms they are said to be increasingly using is the Telegram messaging service.
And the UK minister, Amber Rudd, warned this week that companies need to do more to stop terrorists from using these sorts of platforms. They are urging technology companies to cooperate with law enforcement and they are encouraged to stop offering a secret place for terrorists to communicate.
They don't want any sort of space online available for individuals to
We all know that this happens twice a year, but in a time where electronics update the time automatically most people don't think about it too much.
Do you know why we actually turn the clocks twice a year? How did this happen, why isn't the whole world changing the clocks on the same day, and why are some people against it?
The initial idea of changing the time with the seasons isn't new.
Even the romans were already adjusting the length of their hours depending on the time of year.
Then at the start of the 20th century, daylight saving like we know it begun.
The British builder William Willett first proposed the idea because he wanted the population to enjoy the sunlight more, and the extra hour could also be very useful for farmers during harvest s
That I'm glad to be back on Steemit (I took a little break) and I'd like to thank everyone for all of their support for my work, I truly appreciate it.
If things keep going good like they are now I have some plans that will bring more attention and users to Steemit. But for me to make that happen I have to have a great success story on here myself (This is needed for media exposure.)
My personal goal for Steemit is to be able to support myself just from posting on Steemit. Once I get to that level then I will use that story to bring many others to this platform via my expertise in Marketing and PR, unless it just takes too long to make it happen as I still have to face reality and think like a business man and choose the best opportunities if I want to keep doing what I love which is why I had to take a break before.
I have run into a few snags along the way and I missed the days in the beginning when massive payouts were the norm for awhile other
Just Finished! Tomorrow I will be exhibiting among other painters from Naxos, so I thought of painting a purely Naxian subject; Argokoili.
Argokoili is an area on top of the Naxian mountains, where Naxians go to pray as the Church Panagia Argokoiliotissa is home of a very old icon that is considered miraculous.
I have experienced a miracle of faith and love myself so I cherish this place in my heart.
In fact, many years ago I and my dad used to be closer to the left not very religious (my dad was actually an atheist). But one day he got sick. He got an unbearable stomach pain, we went to the hospital and the doctors said he had cancer in pancreas. In fact the MRIs showed a dramatic state, and the doctors estimated 2 weeks of life left. We cross checked, we went everywhere.
We found a top fame doctor that agreed to operate him, but at the time the outlook of the operation itself was 30% survival rate. For the sake of his family my father agreed.
You can imagine how we all felt. All I remember was cryin
Hello lovely steemit community
My name is Aisha and I live in a small town near Hamburg (Germany). I'm half Canadian and half German- I know it's shocking. I'm so exited to finally becoming a member of steemit, I've heard so many positiv things about this platform and want to get an impression by myself.
I'm a student, hostess and I work as a model. I'm also very athletic I started track & field 11 years ago and dancing last year. Since my father is an entrepreneur I'm very interested in business, this is what steemit makes so fascinating for me. I also hope to meet new people, who have the same interests.
Furthermore I really enjoy traveling, especially meeting new people and getting to know different cultures, which is GREAT! I've been to several countries in the past years (not only because here in Germany the weather is most of the time rainy and cold lol) and I'm looki
