Actors are more than just a pretty face. Many of them are talented to no end and have more abilities than remembering their lines. This is a list of actors who also have the hidden talents of being superstar athletes! Although it’s not hard to believe that the like of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Terry Crews and Carl Weathers have conquered the sports world, there are many more actors who were once on a totally different career path of sweat blood and tears.

Matthew Perry

We all know the face of Mathew Perry who was one of the stars of our favorite 90’s sitcom, Friends.

But little did you know that before Perry was a famous actor, and before his long journey of struggling with prescription drug addictions, he was an active sports star.

See which other Hollywood hotshots stood out in sports:

True love can come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Cross-cultural couples have become more common as racial barriers have broken down and age-old taboos left to the history books. Hollywood, to its credit, has played its part in leading the way in this regard. So, here we celebrate celebrity interracial couples who embody the true meaning of love being (color) blind.

George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin

It took human rights lawyer, Lebanese-British Amal Alamuddin, for Academy Award-winning actor, George Clooney, to call time on his bachelorhood. After several high profile relationships, Clooney wed Alamuddin in September 2014. The couple first met at a 2013 charity event, where the elusive Clooney was immediately smitten.

Clooney popped the question, after just months of dating, with the couple marrying just a few months later the very same year. In June 2017, the couple welcomed twins named Ella and Alexander. Prior to the birth of their children, Clooney said, “It’s going to be an adventure … We’ve sort of embraced it all … with arms wide open.”

In the past, it was handbags. Your purse brand and its price defined you. The more expensive, the better. But slowly, bags have taken the backseat, and shoes have begun to take their place – or so says Business Insider’s, Mary Hanbury.

In fact, numbers show that consumers are spending more money on expensive shoes than luxury handbags – $794 on one pair on average, Hanbury wrote, citing a report by The NPD Group. The most classic of these status-symbol shoes is a pair of Christian Louboutins, which can range from anywhere in the high hundreds to the mid-thousands.

However, a pair of shoes debuted on a yacht in Dubai as a part of MIDE (Made in Italy, Designed in Emirates) Fashion Week earlier this October makes the cost of a pair of Louboutins look like pocket change.

Designed by the Italian Antonio Vietri, the “Moon Star Shoes” are now the world’s most expensive shoe, valuing around $19.9 million according to Sophi Prideaux of The National, an English-language UAE news site.

Made of Stars?

So, what makes these shoes so expensive? Not only is the heel solid gold, but it also consists of 30 carats of diamonds and a bit of Argentinian meteorite circa 1576 – all combined to make a record-breaking shoe.

According to Forbes Italia, the shoes are meant to be a tribute to Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. Vietri is also known for designing the “world’s first 24k gold shoes” in 2017, reported Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. And, of course, they were delivered to buyers via helicopter.

“The most expensive shoes in the world are mine. And the record came to [the] city of Turin. I love my city,” the designer wrote on Instagram on October 14.

It’s undeniable that Vietri has taken the luxury market of shoes to a whole new level. What will he do next?

Still no news on how comfortable the shoes are as of yet.

SpaceX is looking at mid-2020 to start offering broadband services via Starlink – a huge internet-from-space project.  To get the project up and running 60 satellites must be deployed which requires 6-8 launches.

Starlink constellation will consist of thousands of satellites orbiting the Earth at low altitudes.  These satellites will be used to provide internet coverage.

The Federal Communications Commission has licensed Space X to launch 12,000 satellites as part of the project and last week the company contacted the ITU (International Telecommunications Union) to request radio frequencies it needs to communicate with another 30,000 satellites.  In total SpaceX intends to launch around 42,000 satellites into low orbit.

The World Wants to Connect

The initiative stems from the increased demand for reliable and fast internet globally, and to reach areas where connectivity has been patchy, non-existent or too expensive.  SpaceX will likely be working to make Starlink Constellation scalable to meet anticipated future needs.

To date, 60 Starlink satellites have been launched by SpaceX and 3 of these failed when they reached orbit.  Two further satellites were removed from orbit which indicates that the company can do this if they need to.  However, the other satellites have accessed the correct orbit and are functioning normally.  This was announced by Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX via the system.

The project is still very much in its infancy with a lot of work still to complete before the general public can access the internet via Starlink.  As well as getting the satellites into orbit, Space X is still developing the user terminal that receives the signal from space.

The eventual roll-out may mean direct launch to customers in some areas, whereas in others it will be accessed via a telecom company.  This, along with pricing, has yet to be established.

With its venture into the Starlink Constellation SpaceX moves into the realms of space technology being utilized in commerce.

A hiker from New Jersey has credited his Apple Watch for saving his life by dialing 911 after he and his date fell down a cliff.

The Apple Watch has several emergency response features including the ability to detect a fall and notify first responders.  Its location services send the coordinates of the wearer directly to emergency services.

James Prudenciano certainly believes that but for his Apple Watch he would not be alive.  He said that he and his date, Paige Paruso, had lost visibility as the sun went down when they were out hiking and had fallen down a cliff.

They had tried to slide down the drop believing it to be a lot lower than it was.  At the bottom, they were shocked to find they were going to fall directly into the Navesink River below.

The Watch Dialed 911

Paruso landed in the river sustaining minor injuries but Prudenciano landed hard on some rock, causing 3 spinal fractures.  At this stage, he believed he was going to die but the Apple Watch had already dialed 911.

All Apple Watch models after the Series 4 are fitted with this automatic SOS feature.  It can detect if a user falls and will ask if they require 911.  If there is no response or the wearer is immobile for longer than 60 seconds it automatically calls first responders and sends coordinates.

The couple were rescued by boat and were treated at the Hackensack Meridian Jersey Shore University Medical Center.

The hashtag #MeToo took the internet by storm the moment it was tweeted by actress Alyssa Milano in 2017. With more than 200,000 retweets and 12 million posts on the first day, a movement was born!

A National Discussion

Finally, a national discussion regarding sexual harassment in the lives of everyday women. In the modern virtual town square, Hollywood was the initial focus. But a universal discourse expanded beyond the industry!

Checking in two years later, how did things turn out?

After scandals, rallies, and firings, there are mixed opinions. Has the movement gone too far? Has there been unfair collateral damage along the way?

Or, perhaps justice has escaped a majority of cases! It’s time to look at the development of this social wave and take an inventory for 2019. Be honest — do you remember how it really all began?

Did victims finally get justice or were innocent people unfairly targetted?

Google has now confirmed that it has achieved quantum supremacy with its 54-qubit Sycamore processor. The announcement comes in an article in Nature. The news was unofficially leaked a month ago but now all of the research is public and being scrutinized by the scientific community.

According to Google, Sycamore took 200 seconds to perform a calculation that would take an existing supercomputer around 10,000 years. This is said to indicate that the way the machine made the calculation would not be possible using a non-quantum machine.

The supercomputer that Sycamore has been said to have beaten is operated by IBM which, not surprisingly, has disputed Google’s claim. IBM states that its computer could do the task in 2.5 days and not 10,000 years as stated.

Extraordinary Achievement

Although IBM is keen to play down Google’s achievements researchers have welcomed the news. Likely, our ability to produce quantum computers that are suitable and practical for common usage is years down the line but Sycamore does indicate that it is indeed possible.

Scientists have been so enamored with the new machine that they have compared it to the first plane flight undertaken by the Wright Brothers in 1903.

Qantas has announced that flight QF7879 has landed in Sydney after traveling non-stop to New York. With a flight time of 19 hours and 16 minutes in the air, it is officially the longest non-stop flight in the world stealing the top spot from Singapore Airlines who regularly travel from New York to Singapore.

Qantas is intending to test another non-stop flight, this time from London to Sydney which would add an extra 1 hour of flight time and 500 miles.

As airplanes continue to develop technological advancements and better fuel economy these longer flights become possible. However, this raises the question of how well flight crews and passengers will cope with the extra air time instead of the usual layovers which many passengers feel gives a much-needed break.

Qantas carried out research during the flight and intends to do so again in the planned London-Sydney flight to see how people cope with the extended time in the air and also looking at how to minimize the effects of jet-lag in passengers who will be crossing a total of 15 time zones.

The flight took 40 passengers and 10 crew with a complement of 4 pilots. The passengers included frequent fliers, Qantas staff, researchers and media. A full load of passengers and the associated cargo would reduce the plane’s range, making the continuous flight impossible but there are planes in development that will be able to do this.

Airbus and Boeing are expected to have these ready for service within the next 5 years.

Fewer Passengers – More Legroom!

The reduced numbers meant that passengers could make use of a business class seat which converts into a bed but they were asked to spend as much time as possible in the coach cabin. One of the passengers said that he felt better than expected and although he usually prefers direct flights rather than layovers he did not know how he was going to feel after the full 20 hours.

Qantas also adjusted the in-flight routine so as soon as the aircraft took off the flight was in Sydney time.

All of the lighting, meals, and food were tailored accordingly in an attempt to help the passengers adjust more easily to the time zones. All of the staff worked to the custom shift times and ate the adapted menu but also participated in additional tests including melatonin and brainwave measurement.

The team of 4 pilots under Captain Sean Golding worked together for landing and take-off and then worked in four shifts.
