Most N.B.A. Players Are Vaccinated, but Skeptics Speak Out
More than 90 percent of N.B.A. players have been vaccinated against Covid-19, according to the league, and all referees and key team personnel without exemptions will be, too, by the season’s start in three weeks. But a few high-profile players, including the Nets star guard Kyrie Irving, have expressed skepticism about vaccines or been evasive about their vaccination status.Because the Nets are projected to be a top championship contender, and the team is one of just three whose players must be vaccinated to play in their home arenas, Irving’s vaccination status could be as much of a factor in the N.B.A. rankings as his team’s play.“I would like to keep all that private,” Irving told reporters on Monday in response to a question about whether he expected to play home games this season. “Please just respect my privacy. All the questions leading into what’s happening, just please. Everything will be released at a due date once we get this cleared up.”

New York City can proceed with vaccine mandate for educators and staff, judges ruled.
New York City’s vaccine mandate for nearly all adults working in its public schools can proceed as scheduled, a federal appeals panel ruled on Monday, reversing a decision made over the weekend that paused enforcement of the mandate until later this week at the earliest.Mayor Bill de Blasio had originally ordered well over 150,000 educators and staff in the nation’s largest school system to receive at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine by tonight at midnight. That deadline was put on hold late Friday by a judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. The three-judge panel was scheduled to take up the issue on Wednesday, but it appears to have ruled early.It’s not yet clear if the city will decide to implement the mandate tonight at midnight as originally scheduled or wait until later in the week.

HP ZBook Studio G8 Review: Rock Solid Performance, Painful Price Tag
HP’s ZBook lineup — which encompasses the lightweight ZBook Firefly, the affordable ZBook Power, the powerful ZBook Fury, and the best-of-all-worlds ZBook Studio brands — doesn’t attract a lot of attention. As a mobile workstation-class device, the ZBook Studio is not as flashy as most gaming laptops or as affordable as most “creator” laptops, but in many ways, it’s better than both.In the parlance of the tech nerd, the HP ZBook Studio G8 is a “mobile workstation.” On the hardware side, that typically means that you’re getting a Xeon processor, error-correcting (ECC) RAM, and an A-series or Quadro graphics card, paired with some sort of reliability testing (MIL-SPEC or MIL-STD), software certifications from major developers like Adobe, and an extended warranty. All of this usually comes attached to a price so high you’ll get altitude sickness if you stare at it for too long.

A Gardener's Guide To Pampas: The Fun, Fluffy Grass You're Seeing Everywhere
Whimsical pampas grass can give any home, wedding, or event space a certain je ne sais quoi. Here's everything you need to know about growing the dreamy grass in your backyard (in an eco-friendly way) and/or decorating with oh-so-trendy dried pampas. Where to grow pampas grass. Pampas grass, Cortaderia Selloana, is a fluffy perennial grass native to the warm climates of South America. It can grow up to 10 feet tall and has an uncanny ability to thrive in the heat."As a gardener, my only concern lies in knowing that they're an invasive species in some areas," master gardener and wild forager, Brianne Dela Cruz tells mbg of pampas grass.Since the grass' signature fluffy plumes grow so quickly and densely, you need to pay attention to them to ensure they don't get out of control."My hope is that the fascination of pampas grass isn't having a negative impact on the environment by encouraging this plant to be grown in inappropriate landscapes," Dela Cruz adds. Some places that consider pampas invasive include California, Washington state, Hawaii, Texas, Australia, and New Zealand.

iPhone 14 Will Reportedly Be a ‘Complete Redesign’
The iPhone 13 series phone just barely reached store shelves, but new reports allege that the iPhone 14 coming next year will be a “complete redesign” and that buyers can expect a total “overhaul.”Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman who has a rather sterling record when it comes to leaks and rumors regarding Apple wrote in his Power On newsletter that while the iPhone 13 may not be a worthwhile upgrade for those who have iPhone 12 series phones, Apple will get more “dramatic” with the next model. Citing mounting competition from Google and Samsung which are now releasing top-tier smartphones and pushing technological boundaries, Apple has to respond and plans to next year. Gurman even says that since Samsung is going so hard into foldables that Apple plans to release its own in a few years.

A top F.D.A. official moved on Monday to take over the agency’s vaccines office.
Dr. Peter Marks, one of the Food and Drug Administration’s highest-ranking regulators, on Monday took over the agency’s vaccines office, whose two leaders had publicly questioned whether the general population needed coronavirus booster shots.Dr. Marks said in an email to staff that the move, which makes him acting director of the office, would allow the two — Dr. Marion Gruber, the director of the vaccines office, and Dr. Philip Krause, her deputy — to “take care of close-out activities prior to departing and help to assure a smooth transition.”Dr. Gruber recently announced plans to retire at the end of October, and Dr. Krause in November.Both have evaluated vaccines for decades at the agency’s Office of Vaccines Research and Review, and were said to have been upset at the Biden administration’s announcement last month that booster shots would be available to most adults by the week of Sept. 20, contingent on F.D.A. clearance.

Vivo has designed a detachable pop-up camera system that consists of three total cameras and two flashes and runs on its own built-in battery.Detachable smartphone cameras are not a new concept, at least in the design phase. For example, Vivo itself explored the idea of a small detachable phone camera with its own touch-display earlier this month, which was built upon a 2020 prototype that showed a smartphone design with a detachable front camera.This time, Vivo designed a double-sided pop-up camera that may be the most advanced and practical design yet. The patent — as found and illustrated by LetsGoDigital — shows a Vivo smartphone with a full-screen design and a pop-up camera situated in the top right corner.
