There are a number of quests to complete in the city during your MyCareer journey. NBA 2K23, however, doesn’t do much to actually explain how you’re supposed to complete each task.

Although most of the quests are quite simple, some will leave you puzzled. For example, the Dime magazine cover quest is probably one of those quests.

The quest vaguely tells you to “help out a local business by doing standard daily photo or selfie quests” around town. If you thought that meant taking random selfies, think again.

The following guide will tell you exactly how to take your selfies the right way to complete the Dime Magazine Cover quest in NBA 2K23.

Where to Take Selfies for the Dime Magazine Cover Quest

The quest requires you to take selfies but in certain places. You can’t just walk into any random store with your camera and mug.

What you need to do is search for daily quests on your map. These will have yellow camera icons For your convenience. Head over there and use the in-game camera to take photos or selfies.

The only problem is that you might not see those yellow icons every time on your map. They are on a timer and will appear on their own.

The only thing you can do is keep a close eye on your map. Every time a yellow daily marker appears, quickly go there and take a selfie for the Dime Magazine Cover quest.

Another thing to note is that a few players faced a problem where they are unable to complete the quest even after using their yellow marker camera. If you encounter such a problem, restart your NBA 2K23 and try again.

New blow for Meghan Markle: the cover of Variety magazine delayed https://continentalmag.com/new-blow-for-meghan-markle-the-cover-of-variety-magazine-delayed/ Thu, 15 Sep 2022 18:18:54 +0000 https://continentalmag.com/new-blow-for-meghan-markle-the-cover-of-variety-magazine-delayed/ While helping Prince Harry mourn the death of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, Meghan Markle is losing several high-profile opportunities that were meant to boost her career as a global media superstar.

While helping Prince Harry mourn the death of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, Meghan Markle is losing several high-profile opportunities that were meant to boost her career as a global media superstar.

The latest opportunity Meghan has lost or delayed is an honor from Variety magazine, to grace the cover of its upcoming Power of Women issue. Following the Queen’s death last week, the magazine announced that coverage of Meghan was delayed “out of respect for the recent death of Queen Elizabeth II”.

The magazine also announced that the Duchess of Sussex will not be joining other honorees – Hillary and Chelsea Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Ava DuVernay, Malala and Elizabeth Olsen – at its Power of Women event in Los Angeles on September 28.

Meghan, who has lived in California since her acrimonious departure from royal life with Harry in 2020, is expected to remain in the UK with Harry at least until the Queen’s funeral on September 19. She and Harry were in London for a charity event when word came that the 96-year-old Queen’s health suddenly deteriorated on September 8 and she died hours later.

Variety’s delay in coverage is the latest blow to what was supposed to be Meghan’s triumphant media blitz to introduce the world to her new life in America. The blitz began with the launch of the former TV actress’ long-awaited podcast for Spotify, “Archetypes,” and continued with a lengthy profile in The Cut magazine.

Some of Meghan’s statements on the ‘Archetypes’ episodes and in her interview with The Cut have been controversial, largely because she leveled criticism at her husband’s family and veiled threats to smear royal life further. Her critics added to some people’s view that she and Harry can only make money from their various media ventures by positioning themselves in opposition to the Royal Family.

With the death of the world-famous queen, Meghan’s promotional efforts immediately came to a halt. The Telegraph and other outlets have reported that the release of the next episode of Meghan’s podcast has been suspended, possibly for weeks, “as a sign of respect”.

Page Six also reported that the Duchess has postponed an upcoming appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s show. The Duchess was booked for NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” on September 20, while she and Prince Harry were in New York to attend the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly, Page reported. Six.

With the Queen’s state funeral scheduled for September 19, after a 10-day period of national mourning in the UK, Meghan canceled her appearance at Fallon.

Meghan Markle’s report on the cover of Variety has been officially postponed following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

Wednesday, the publication announced that the Duchess of Sussex had been selected as one of the winners for her Power of Women number. As well as appearing on the cover of the magazine, Meghan had to be profiled for VarietyThe annual Women’s Impact Report “which highlights the best women working in the entertainment industry”.

However, the magazine has now revealed that its cover has been ‘postponed to a later date out of respect for the recent death of Queen Elizabeth II’.

Additionally, Meghan will not be attending the Power of Women event, which will take place in Los Angeles on September 28.

VaridityThe next issue will also pay tribute to Hillary and Chelsea Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Ava DuVernay, Elizabeth Olsen and Pakistani activist Malala.

Prior to the announcement of the Queen’s death, Meghan and her husband Prince Harry were already in the UK and preparing to visit several charities. Harry visited Scotland on September 8, the day Buckingham Palace announced the 96-year-old royal had “passed away peacefully” at her Balmoral estate.

Throughout their stay in the UK, Meghan and Harry reunited with the royal family, including Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton. They saw some of the floral tributes left in memory of the Queen outside Windsor Castle on Monday. It was the first time four of them had been seen publicly together since the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations in June.

On Wednesday, Meghan and Harry joined other senior royals in a short service for the Queen at Westminster Hall.

At the event, Meghan paid a subtle tribute to her mother-in-law through her choice of jewelry. She wore a pair of pearl earrings given to her by the late monarch.

Since stepping down from royal duties in 2020, Harry and Meghan have lived in California with their three-year-old son Archie and one-year-old daughter Lilibet. The couple are expected to stay in the UK until after the Queen’s funeral on September 19.

Fake 1977 Edition TIME Magazine Cover Photo Predicting ‘Next Ice Age’ Reignited To Spread Climate Change Misinformation – FactCrescendo https://continentalmag.com/fake-1977-edition-time-magazine-cover-photo-predicting-next-ice-age-reignited-to-spread-climate-change-misinformation-factcrescendo/ Thu, 15 Sep 2022 14:04:51 +0000 https://continentalmag.com/fake-1977-edition-time-magazine-cover-photo-predicting-next-ice-age-reignited-to-spread-climate-change-misinformation-factcrescendo/ We continue to witness the consequences of climate change across the world in the form of wildfires, devastating floods and scorching heat waves.

We continue to witness the consequences of climate change across the world in the form of wildfires, devastating floods and scorching heat waves. It is becoming difficult to deny the existence of day-to-day climate change as it affects millions of people around the world. Despite this, climate change deniers do not seem to be moving. While denying climate change, they often use disinformation as arguments.

A poster containing a meme showing a comparison between the covers of TIME magazine from the year 1977 and 2008 has reappeared on social networks. This misinformation has been spreading on social media for many years and comes up periodically. This time we found a Tweeter containing this meme.

Archived link

The meme says: “When the exact same group of ‘Experts’ who claimed it was global cooling in 1977, now claims it’s global warming, you can easily see why am I skeptical.”

However, the 1977 poster is faked. TIME Magazine never published such a cover photo in 1977. Let’s know the truth.

Fact check

We checked the archives of TIME magazine covers published in 1977. However, we found no such cover photo.

TIME safe

We did a keyword search on Google with relevant keywords gathered from the meme and found TIME magazine’s website refuting this fake cover photo in 2013.

TIME

According to the article, this fake photo has been circulating for a while. Also, this photo was made by editing the photo from another Time Magazine cover called “The Global Warming Survival Guide” published on April 9, 2007.

You can see the comparison between the modified image and the original image. We can clearly see that the text “The Global Warming Survival Guide” has been changed to “How To Survive The Coming Ice Age”.

Besides TIME, organizations such as Reuters and Climate Feedback have already debunked this misinformation. However, he still comes up frequently on social media platforms.

Conclusion

TIME magazine’s 1977 cover photo predicting the next ice age is wrong. The photo was created after editing a 2007 TIME magazine cover that read “The Global Warming Survival Guide”.

BTS’ V dazzles with expensive bling

Kim Taehyung, you really are a man of taste! The BTS singer, who stole millions of hearts around the world with his latest magazine photo, doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. In fact, this time around, his trial mode choices are going very viral.
If you’ve been living under a rock and don’t already know it, V recently graced the cover of Vogue Korea in newly leaked preview images. Looking like a million bucks, while his visuals were top notch as always, did you notice all the bling he was sporting?
On the subject of bling, it’s widely speculated that Cartier could announce a brand deal with the singer, hopefully in the future. Considering how V is decked out in their premium collection, not to mention Vogue actually tagging the luxury brand on Instagram, it’s highly likely that VX Cartier will become a possibility!

Currently hailing from the world of K-pop, Blackpink’s Jisoo holds the title of Cartier brand ambassador and has often amazed fans with her chic jewelry and flawless photo shoots. We don’t have to tell you how much ARMY looks forward to for this, just in case V ends up striking a deal with the brand.

For now, if you haven’t had time to look past her visuals and focus on her jewelry, let us tell you that V wears some very exquisite diamonds from the jewelry brand. In one of his photos, V adorns Cartier’s representative Panthère collection, also known as their most expensive and iconic collection.

The watch, bracelet and ring, all from the same collection, cost Rs 49 lakh, and it’s not even the most expensive piece of jewelry he put on for the photoshoot.

james lebron of the Los Angeles Lakers has been on the cover of numerous magazines throughout his career.

But the latest with him is probably the most expensive yet.

James was front and center in Sports Illustrated with his two sons, Bronny and Bryce.

The cover story, titled The Chosen Sons, highlights James, his sons and their plans to play in the NBA together.

In the image, James stands between his two boys, looking both proud and challenging for any contestant who wants to take them on.

During this time, he wears a shirt that features his first SI appearance, when he was dubbed “The Chosen One”.

Is the James dynasty really about to begin?

The LeBron legacy continues

James opened up in the magazine about his desire to play with Bronny, who should be eligible for the NBA in a few seasons at the most.

But most surprisingly, James has also suggested he could also play under youngster Bryce, who may not join the league until around 2027.

James said his body feels good, fit and ready to go.

In fact, he said the biggest challenge for him would be mental, with his mind providing the only obstacles that could slow him down.

He said he felt like it was really possible for him to play with his two boys, a feat most people thought was impossible given his age.

But James, 37, has repeatedly proven people wrong and shown that while Father Time is taking a toll on him, it doesn’t affect him like other people.

August 31—Reader: First, let me say that I respect and admire the work you do for The Californian. You had big shoes to fill, and you filled them well. That said, though, I have to say you really screwed it up in the September 2022 issue of Bakersfield Life.

The issue’s cover identifies the issue as “The Women’s Issue”. Your editor’s note states that you “feature this issue focused on women and women in business.” And yet, your cover story “Local Lawyers Spotlight” features two male lawyers and firms where there are very few or no female lawyers. I am much less apt than my friends to notice the implicit bias inherent in the lack of representation of women and people of diverse backgrounds; however, the inclusion of mostly white male lawyers in the local lawyers section was remarkable even to me.

Please understand that my review has nothing to do with the lawyers featured in your lawyer profiles. They are good lawyers. However, it is very ironic to see so many male lawyers in this “Women’s Issue”. Apparently, you didn’t realize that the current president of the Kern County Bar Association is a lawyer, Xochitl Garcia, as is the outgoing president, Alekxia Torres Stallings.

Wouldn’t a photo of them have been ideal for this particular issue which aims to focus on women and businesswomen and spotlight local lawyers? There are also many women lawyers in town, practicing in various areas of law. There is more to the legal profession than civil litigation, which is the area in which all of the attorneys listed in your attorney profiles practice.

It would also have been nice to have included a female lawyer in the “Perspectives on Women’s Success” article, because female lawyers in private practice are businesswomen. Additionally, three of Bakersfield’s government law firms are headed by women – Kern County Attorney Margo Raison, Bakersfield City Attorney Virginia Gennaro, and Kern County District Attorney Cynthia Zimmer. .

I hope the next time you decide to dedicate an issue to women, you will think of the women in our local legal profession.

— Sincerely, Susan M. Gill

Reader: I was instantly disappointed when I opened the newspaper on Saturday morning to see the Bakersfield Life proclaiming it to be the women’s issue…and yet two guys were on the cover! And, to add insult to injury, articles about women have been relegated to the back half of the magazine.

I think at best it shows that the layout was particularly tone-deaf, but more so it shows a perhaps unconscious disregard for the huge impact of women on our community…we are referred to “the back of the bus” by this layout. For once, you should have put those overpriced lawyers and their ads behind the stories featuring Bakersfield women and their accomplishments.

— Jenell Mahoney

Reader: I’ve enjoyed the magazine since it went to print and I’ve never been more disappointed than today. So much so that I had to write to you. “The question of women”? Yet the cover has two lawyers on it. Who cares about the lawyers in this town but the lawyers themselves? Having been through a divorce and also self-employed for over 28 years, I have been verbally abused, exploited, disrespected, ripped off financially and generally think that lawyers are the worst our society has to offer. They prey on those who have no knowledge or experience of our joke of a legal system and charge whatever they want. Needless to say, I hate lawyers.

So when I saw this issue indulge these self-centered people, it obviously struck a chord. This issue was to honor our successful women in the community, I thought. I won’t even watch it. It goes straight to the trash can where it belongs. Do better! If your magazine hadn’t been free and put in my Saturday paper, I wouldn’t even have looked at it from now on.

—Sean Moran

Reader: It was not just my wife and I who noticed the irony of the choice of the cover photo for the latest issue of Bakersfield Life which purports to be “women’s issue”, but which features the photo of two white male professionals middle-aged. In place! I would have thought that one or more of the successful women celebrated in this issue would have been a much better choice for the cover photo and would have been far more progressive than one might have expected from the stereotypical patriarchal Bakersfield. I’m just saying…

— Thank you, Robert M. Yohe II, Ph.D., RPA

Reader: I have just opened my journal and see that September’s Bakersfield Life is titled “The Women’s Issue” second. I also see that the cover of the issue consists of two men. Shouldn’t a female issue include at least one female person on the cover?

— Disappointed reader Sandra Goins

Reader: September 2022 issue. The question of women. Cover photo: two male lawyers. Oh good? Oh good? A major mistake and a thumbs up to all the wonderful women in Bakersfield.

-Joan Little

Reader: I thought it was humorous and hard to understand why TBC chose to call this month’s issue of Bakersfield Life The Women’s Issue. With two guys on the cover. We have a female mayor and a female DA. If, suppose, we were to choose two local female leaders for this month’s cover. Maybe two lawyers. Maybe.

-John O’Connell

Reader: I’ve just been given this month’s Bakersfield Life magazine and the first thing that came to mind before I opened it was that it’s The Women’s Issue, but the cover featured two men.

— Sincerely, Sybil Pearce

Reader: I just wanted to draw your attention to a clear error in judgment and a serious misstep by your publication. Am I seeing this correctly? Your September issue is called “The Women’s Issue,” but the cover photo is of two middle-aged white men in suits? How could this surveillance even be possible?

Given that you are a female executive, I’m sure I don’t even need to tell you about the struggles of a male-dominated business world, but actions like this show how much we still have a long way to go. I’m not even a woman and I’m still quite surprised by this shameful and egregious lack of diversity and inclusion.

I would seriously amend this error if possible, or at least start preparing a public apology for the backlash, as this matter is already blowing up on social media.

— Disappointed, Steve Brandon

Reader: While I appreciate a magazine issue dedicated to women, it was very off-putting to see two men on the cover of this issue. If you chose to feature local lawyers, I’m sure you could have found some great women to feature. It would have been more in line with the message you detailed in the editor’s note: “Women should take the time to uplift, praise, inspire, compliment and mentor other women.”

— Sincerely, Joanne Carrillo

Peterson: Thank you to all of those above, and others, for taking the time to write and voice your concerns.

The September issue of Bakersfield Life, which appeared in the August 27 edition of The Bakersfield Californian, had two main themes: women’s issues and lawyer profiles.

Everything but lawyer profiles was reported, written, compiled and created by news and reporting staff, freelancers and columnists to celebrate the extraordinary and accomplished women in our community. We all know there are many more than have been included in this issue. But you have to start somewhere with recognition! As I read the stories our staff have written, I see that there are even more wonderful women in our community that I would love to meet.

Lawyer profiles are paid advertisements. These pages are labeled “promotional content” and are not created by the press team. These are pieces sold by advertising reps, and any lawyer or company could have purchased one. This includes the ability to buy the cover, which an advertiser did. As such, the advertiser decides who is in the photo, subject to certain technical specifications such as what will go on the cover and will always include space for titles. (And yes, I absolutely know that there are also some amazing women who are lawyers.)

It’s similar to the advertisements you see in newspapers. An advertiser can purchase the “ad strip” position at the bottom of the home page. An advertiser can also buy the position in the top right corner of the home page. Such a purchase does not affect anything else in the newspaper reported and written by our staff, trusted freelancers and news agencies. It’s the same with the magazine.

I appreciate our readers and our advertisers, who help pay the bills.

I also appreciate the opportunity to explain the difference to people who have inquired. All the readers whose letters are printed above have responded graciously to my communications with them and have agreed to have their letters published. But I am deeply saddened by the vitriol I have suffered over the past four days from those who have chosen to attack, especially on social media, rather than inquire.

TIME Magazine has unveiled its latest cover star, and it’s none other than legendary tennis player Serena Williams.

The black and white cover features the famous athlete with her head held high in a profile shot. Under the title “Time”, the words “THE GREATEST” appear. The cover focuses solely on Serena, with the only fashion details being a small earring that says Ma and the hint of an athletic tank top.

The caption of TIME’s Instagram post for the cover refers to Serena as “the greatest female athlete of all time – check this out: possibly the greatest athlete of all time,” and goes on to explain how, after all her years as a professional tennis player, she is finally retiring. Williams announced in the interview for her recent August Vogue cover that she would be retiring from tennis, although she also says she doesn’t like the word retirement.

After the US Open, after 27 years, 23 majors in singles, 14 in doubles, two more in mixed doubles and four Olympic gold medals, Williams will focus on other projects. Just last week, Williams arrived at the New York Stock Exchange wearing one of her S by Serena dresses and Serena Williams jewelry to ring the New York Stock Exchange bell. Williams has taken her venture capital firm, Serena Ventures, public.

Serena Ventures’ goal is to invest in companies with diverse viewpoints. Her fashion line, S by Serena, has been in production since 2018.

The Instagram caption in Time’s post goes on to praise Williams for changing the behavioral expectations of female athletes, and by extension women in all workplaces, by exuding power and passion – and bringing herself fully – at his hard desk.

TIME’s cover photo was taken by Paola Kudacki, who has also photographed notable celebrities such as Stella Maxwell, Jacob Elordi and Dakota Johnson.
