Emilia Clarke says she's been pressured to perform nude scenes so she doesn't disappoint 'Game of Thrones' fans
HBO Emilia Clarke said she has been told on certain projects that it would disappoint "Game of Thrones" fans if she didn't perform a nude scene. The "Last Christmas" star told Dax Shepard on his podcast "Armchair Expert" that she refused to be nude in a project as she wasn't told in advance.  "I've had fights on-set before where I'm like, 'No, the sheet stays up,' and they're like, 'You don't wanna disappoint your 'Game of Thrones' fans.' And I'm like, 'F--- you.'" Clarke also said she felt overwhelmed with the "f--- ton of nudity" in the first season of "Game of Thrones," as someone who came "fresh from drama school." While she feels more comfortable with nude scenes now, Clarke also credits Jason Momoa who played Khal Drogo in "Thrones," for empowering her to have more autonomy over her body. "When I got to do them with Jason, [the nude scenes] were wonderful, because he was like, 'No, sweetie, this isn't okay.' And I was like, 'Ohhhh.'" Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Emilia Clarke has revealed that she once refused to perform a nude scene on the set of a project, despite being told that it would "disappoint" her Game of Thrones fans.

This hi-tech turntable brings your vinyl into the modern age
Vinyl is officially back. People are hearing the proof behind the initial "retro" excitement: that records really do have a richer sound. And if you haven't switched to old-school records for serious listening, it's a new golden age. Why? Because quality turntables like the Altec Lansing ALT-500 are finally available to a market other than rich audiophiles. This unit comes with everything you need to start playing: A stylus cartridge, 45 RPM adapter, auto stop feature and two built-in hidden speakers. But there are some definite upgrades for modern listeners in terms of output. You can transmit sound to your own speakers through left-right RCA jacks. It's also compatible with Bluetooth technology, so you can use your wireless speakers or headphones. You can even stream in reverse, playing music from your own device through the ALT-500's speakers. The Altec Lansing ALT-500 Turntable is already half off the retail cost of $150, but you can take an extra 15% off by using the online promo code BFSAVE15 - for a final price of $63.74. Read the rest

There's a new iOS update out but maybe wait before installing it
I love what iOS 13 has brought to my iPhone's party. I'm not attached, however, to how frigging buggy it's been. More than once, I've been left waiting while waiting to receive a work-related message or something important, such as whether or not my wife should bring me a milkshake home from Peter's Drive-In. The Lords of Cupertino (which is like the shittiest possible version of the Masters of the Universe,) are aware that the delightful new iteration of their operating system is just a wee bit of a clusterfuck. As such, they've been liberal with the doling out of patches since the OS popped earlier this fall. The latest patch to make the scene is 13.2.3 which, hopefully, will fix more than it borks. From The Verge: The latest update includes a fix for the Spotlight system search feature that had been failing for some users recently. Search should now work consistently at the system level and in the Mail, Files, and Notes apps. If you use an app that downloads content in the background and you’ve noticed weird issues in iOS 13.2.2 or before, Apple is now addressing this in the new update. Mail is also getting updated to fix problems fetching new messages or quoting messages from Exchange accounts. The only other fix that’s listed on Apple’s release notes for iOS 13.2.3 is concerning an issue where photos, links, and other attachments haven’t been displaying properly in the iMessage details view. Today's update also includes security updates for iPhones and iPads (yes, I know they run iPadOS, yet here we are,) which is nice. Read the rest

Courtesy of Melody Wilding Melody Wilding is an executive coach who helps people navigate their careers confidently and find lasting work-life balance. Put simply, being introverted means you're someone who is more sensitive to stimulation.  You can bring your whole self to work, quiet qualities and all — there are ways to leverage your sensitivity to your advantage and thrive in the workplace. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Which sounds like a dream job to you?  Spending your day brainstorming and chatting with coworkers in an open-plan office? A day with no meetings and plenty of time to dive into a creative project by yourself?  If you picked option two, you might be an introvert.Who is an introvert, actually? Alex Wong / Getty Images Put simply, being introverted means you're someone who is more sensitive to stimulation. Many introverts cherish deep thinking and reflection. Most of all, introverts often need periods of rest and recharging in order to do their best work.  It's easy to imagine that introverts might see their qualities as a liability in their careers. especially when our culture glorifies hustle and charisma. (Don't tell that to Warren Buffett, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Marissa Mayer, and Michael Jordan, who are among history's most successful introverts alongside Abraham Lincoln and Eleanor Roosevelt.) The rise of the introverts Drew Angerer/Getty Images But take heart, dear introverts, because your time to shine is here. Growing recognition for the introvert movement, sparked by leaders like Susan Cain, means that different working styles are being embraced now more than ever. You can bring your whole self to work, quiet qualities and all. Here's how to leverage sensitivity to your advantage and thrive in the workplace:  1. Play to your strengths Thierry Chesnot/Getty Images Your emotional intelligence, empathy, and communication-savvy are skills that make you a loyal, valued team player (even if group work isn't your favorite). Plus, your curiosity perfectly positions you to lead, so look for opportunities to exercise this creativity. Be the one to ask thoughtful questions that inspire people to think differently. You'll soon be regarded as an innovator.   Believe it or not, introverts can be great salespeople precisely because they tend to be so skilled at building rapport, listening, and empathizing with customer needs.

Sudden Trump trip to hospital "just a physical" says adminstration
The president made an unscheduled weekend visit to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to "get a head start on his annual physical", but everyone is so accustomed to him and his staff lying about things it's blown up into a credible health scare. NBC News reports on the "skeptical reaction." For any president, a sudden trip to the hospital would raise questions. But such scrutiny was magnified with a president who has a history of exaggeration and playing loose with the facts, giving skeptics room to run with their own theories. “The one thing you can be absolutely sure of is this was not routine and he didn't go up there for half his physical,” tweeted Joe Lockhart, a press secretary under President Bill Clinton, who was himself impeached for perjury and obstruction. “What does it mean? It means that we just won't know what the medical issue was.” Note how the speculation abut his health echoes his own crude rumor-monging about the health of others. Bullshit is a hallmark of autocracy, but getting everyone to play by the same rules is another. Read the rest

Hundreds of Hong Kong protesters surrendered to police after a days-long university campus siege
Getty Hundreds of protesters surrendered to police after a days-long siege of the Polytechnic University in Hong Kong. Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam announced in a press conference on Tuesday that 600 people left the university campus — 400 of whom were arrested and 200 of whom were let go for being under 18. The seige had become the latest flashpoint in a months-long running battle between Hong Kong authorities, backed by China, and vast numbers of protesters. The campus stand-off saw police blockade the protesters in, and use tear gas on those inside. Protesters threw rocks and Molotov cocktails at officers. The mass surrender represented a victory for authorities, who have emphasized their desire to prosecute those involved.  A hard core of around 100 people, who refused to surrender, remained at the university.

How Prince Andrew's voluntarily decision to do a primetime interview about his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein has set his reputation on fire
REUTERS, AP Images. Prince Andrew spoke to BBC Newsnight about his friendship with disgraced financier and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, reviving a news cycle which had gone relatively quiet. The interview was almost universally panned, being called a "car crash" and "one of the single worst PR moves in recent history." Businesses are now distancing themselves from the prince, with KPMG cutting its sponsorship of his entrepreneurship charity and at least three other companies considering doing the same. Lawyers, royal experts, and Epstein accusers are also calling on Andrew to testify under oath to the FBI about Epstein. One of the most surprising features of this public self-detonation is that Andrew chose to do the interview, bringing its disastrous consequences on himself. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Prince Andrew's reputation is in tatters after the airing of his catastrophic interview about his friendship with disgraced financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

How to easily batch geotag DSLR photos in Lightroom
Having spent hundreds of dollars on glass tripods and other camera accessories for my iPhone, it's fair to say that I'm neck-deep in love with iPhone photography. However, there are still some situations where pulling up my trust Sony RX100 III to capture a moment is a better choice. It's a wonderful camera, but it lacks GPS. To get around this issue, after taking a photo with my RX100, I often snap off a throwaway shot with my iPhone for the sake of capturing the location information. I've been doing it for years. This video covers a bit of this, but it also goes a step further by illustrating how to batch import GPS coordinates for a single location into multiple images via Lightroom Classic. Unfortunately, I haven't figured out how to preform the trick described in the video using Lightroom for iOS or Android, but it works a treat with the desktop version of the app. Image via Pixabay Read the rest
