The tsunami brothers cut 80 points! All-Star Thompson 3 points

The Warriors bathed the Bulls with 146-109 blood at home and won three consecutive victories. Stephen Coory achieved a milestone, with three-point hits in the regular

season surpassing Jason Terry to third place in history. The three giants combined to score 80 points and the Warriors swept the Bulls season.

Cray Thompson shot 30 points in 7 out of 11 points, Curie 28 points, 8 assists, 5 rebounds, Durant

22 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds. On the Bulls side, Zack Raven scored 29 points, 4 rebounds and Botis scored 16 points.

All-Star: Thompson

Thompson has gradually recovered his three-point touch recently. Today, he has thrown 63.6% of th

e three-point shooting rate. His three-point run helped the Warriors set the tone of the game at the beginning. After

that, he was very accurate in both three-point shooting and negative angle shooting from mid-distance. Thompson’s three-point shooting rate has

exceeded 43% in six consecutive games. In the last six games, he has hit at least 50% in five. At this pace, Thompson’s three-point shooting rate is expected to return to 40% this season.

Home highlights:

In the last meeting, Thompson broke the historical record in 14 three-point shooting against the Bulls. Today, Thompson opene

d the game with three-point shooting, one-handedly handling the first nine points of the Warriors.

Dunn hit the basket in the face of Curie’s defensive counter-attack. As a result, his right foot landed unsteadily, sprained his ankle and limped off.

Before the end of the first quarter, Jerebko catches and throws a three-point ball in the back field, and the ball magically presses

the whistle into the basket. The magic goal ignited Oracle Stadium, and the Warriors’bench and other players rushed up to celebrate with Jerebuko.

The team lagged behind in a big score, and Raven could only use this wonderful free-kick to save face for himself and the team.

In the third quarter, 10 minutes and 02 seconds, Curie hit three points in his return, reaching

2,283 in his career, surpassing Jason Terry and rising to the third place in history, after Ray Allen and Reggie Miller.

The bribery scandal in Japan’s bid for the Olympic Games has

According to the Associated Press, the French National Financial Procuratorate confirmed on November 11 that the French side had formally launched an investigation into

the alleged bribery and solicitation of tickets by the Chairman of the Japanese Olympic Committee, Henghe Takeda, when he bid for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

It is reported that the French National Financial Procuratorate launched a formal investigation on the alleged bribery of Zhutian

Henghe in order to win the right to host the 2020 Olympic Games on Dec. 10 last year, but the French National Financial Procuratorate did not disclose more details of the case.

On the other hand, Zhutian Henghe denied some media reports that he had been prosecuted by the French side. He said on the 11th that he only cooperated with the French in

vestigation in December last year and denied that he had acted improperly in the process of bidding for the Olympic Games.

According to Kyodo News Agency, in September 2013, the

International Olympic Committee announced that Tokyo had the right to host the 2020 Olympic Games.

Before and after the successful bid, Japan remitted two sums to the account of a Singapore consulting company.

The total amount is about 2.8 million Singapore dollars (about 13.99 million yuan) under the title of “Tokyo Summer Olympic Games Bid”. The account is related to the son o

f Diak, former president of the International Athletics Federation. When Tokyo’s bid was successful, Diak was also a member of the International Olympic Committee.

It was influential and was subsequently investigated for other bribery issues. Hiroshi Takeda was questioned by the Japanese judiciary

in 2017 for the money. The Japanese Olympic Committee also acknowledged the remittance, but insisted that the money was a “legal consultation fee”.

At present, the IOC and the French judiciary are paying close attention to the progress of the incident, and relevant investigations are under way.

After the battle there had been thousands of them struggling through the forest, hungry, frightened, fleeing the carnage that had descended on them at the Wall. Some had talked of

 

returning to the homes that they’d abandoned, others of mounting a second assault upon the gate, but most were lost, with no notion of where to go or what to do. They had escaped the

black-cloaked crows and the knights in their grey steel, but more relentless enemies stalked them now. Every day left more corpses by the trails. Some died of hunger, some of cold, some

of sickness. Others were slain by those who had been their brothers-in-arms when they marched south with Mance Rayder, the King-Beyond-the-Wall.

Mance is fallen, the survivors told each other in despairing voices, Mance is taken, Mance is dead. “Harma’s dead and Mance is captured, the rest run off and left us,” Thistle had claimed,

as she was sewing up his wound. “Tormund, the Weeper, Sixskins, all them brave raiders. Where are they now?”

She does not know me, Varamyr realized then, and why should she? Without his beasts he did not look like a great man. I was Varamyr Sixskins, who broke bread with Mance Rayder. He had

named himself Varamyr when he was ten. A name fit for a lord, a name for songs, a mighty name, and fearsome. Yet he had run from the crows like a frightened rabbit. The terrible Lord

Varamyr had gone craven, but he could not bear that she should know that, so he told the spearwife that his name was Haggon. Afterward he wondered why that name had come to his

lips, of all those he might have chosen.

Molitor had the best competitive swimming club

Molitor had the best competitive swimming club in Paris. Therewere two pools, an indoor and an outdoor. Both were as bigas small oceans. The indoor pool always had two lanesreserved for

 

swimmers who wanted to do lengths. The waterwas so clean and clear you could have used it to make yourmorning coffee. Wooden changing cabins, blue and white,surrounded the pool

 

on two floors. You could look down andsee everyone and everything. The porters who marked yourcabin door with chalk to show that it was occupied werelimping old men, friendly in an ill-

 

tempered way. No amount ofshouting and tomfoolery ever ruffled them. The showers gushedhot, soothing water. There was a steam room and an exerciseroom. The outside pool

 

became a skating rink in winter. Therewas a bar, a cafeteria, a large sunning deck, even two smallbeaches with real sand. Every bit of tile, brass and woodgleamed. It was – it was…”It was

 

the only pool that made Mamaji fall silent, hismemory making too many lengths to mention.
Mamaji remembered, Father dreamed.

That is how I got my name when I entered this world, alast, welcome addition to my family, three years after Ravi:
Piscine Molitor Patel.

Thistle had warned him that might happen. “I sewed it up the best I could,” she’d said, “but you need to rest and let it mend, or the flesh will tear open again.”

Thistle had been the last of his companions, a spearwife tough as an old root, warty, windburnt, and wrinkled. The others had deserted them along the way. One by one they fell behind or

 

forged ahead, making for their old villages, or the Milkwater, or Hardhome, or a lonely death in the woods. Varamyr did not know, and could not care. I should

 

have taken one

I had the chance.

One was better off at the Piscines Chateau-Landon, Rouvetor du boulevard de la Gare. They were indoor pools withroofs, on land and open year-round. Their water was suppliedby the

 

condensation from steam engines from nearby factoriesand so was cleaner and warmer. But these pools were still abit dingy and tended to be crowded. “There was so much goband spit

 

floating in the water, I thought I was swimmingthrough jellyfish,” chuckled Mamaji.

The Piscines Hébert, Ledru-Rollin and Butte-aux-Cailles werebright, modern, spacious pools fed

 

by artesian wells. They setthe standard for excellence in municipal swimming pools. Therewas the Piscine des Tourelles, of course, the city’s other greatOlympic pool, inaugurated during the

 

second Paris games, of1924. And there were still others, many of them.

But no swimming pool in Mamaji’s eyes matched the gloryof the Piscine Molitor. It was the

crowning aquatic glory ofParis, indeed, of the entire civilized world.
“It was a pool the gods would have delighted to swim in.

That was as a wolf, though. He had never eaten the meat of men with human teeth. He would not grudge his pack their feast, however. The wolves were as famished as he was, gaunt and

better, quicker. A mercy.

“A mercy,” he said aloud. His throat was raw, but it felt good to hear a human voice, even his own. The air smelled of mold and damp, the ground was cold and hard, and his fire was giving

The chief financial officer at Lucasfilm found Jobs arrogant

The chief financial officer at Lucasfilm found Jobs arrogant and prickly, so when it

came time to hold a meeting of all the players, he told Catmull, “We have to establish

the right pecking order.” The plan was to gather everyone in a room with Jobs, and

then the CFO would come in a few minutes late to establish that he was the person

running the meeting. “But a funny thing happened,” Catmull recalled. “Steve started

the meeting on time without the CFO, and by the time the CFO walked in

Steve was already in control of the meeting.”

Jobs met only once with George Lucas, who warned him that the people in the division

cared more about making animated movies than they did about making computers.

“You know, these guys are hell-bent on animation,” Lucas told him. Lucas later recalled,

“I did warn him that was basically Ed and John’s agenda. I think in his heart he bought

the company because that was his agenda too.”

The final agreement was reached in January 1986. It provided that, for his $10 million

investment, Jobs would own 70% of the company, with the rest of the stock distributed

to Ed Catmull, Alvy Ray Smith, and the thirty-eight other founding employees, down to

the receptionist. The division’s most important piece of hardware was called the Pixar

Image Computer, and from it the new company took its name.

For a while Jobs let Catmull and Smith run Pixar without much interference. Every month

or so they would gather for a board meeting, usually at NeXT headquarters, where Jobs

would focus on the finances and strategy. Nevertheless, by dint of his personality and

controlling instincts, Jobs was soon playing a stronger role. He spewed out a stream of

ideas—some reasonable, others wacky—about what Pixar’s hardware and software could

become. And on his occasional visits to the Pixar offices, he was an inspiring presence.

“I grew up a Southern Baptist, and we had revival meetings with mesmerizing but corrupt

preachers,” recounted Alvy Ray Smith. “Steve’s got it: the power of the tongue and the

web of words that catches people up. We were aware of this when we had board meetings,

so we developed signals—nose scratching or ear tugs—for when someone

 

had been caught up in

Steve’s distortion field

and he needed to be

tugged back to reality.”
