How to turn off Google Maps’ many notifications
Judging by the flood of notifications I get on a daily basis from Google Maps, it really likes me — maybe a little too much. If you use Google Maps on Android, you might be in the same boat. Google Maps has a lot of notification options (between 40 and 54 nestled into 10 categories in the three phones that we tried out), and they’re all turned on by default. When I look down the list, I find a few crucial notifications in the mix, like the one that lets me know my train schedule before I leave for work. But I find most of the others to be trivial and annoying to deal with, constantly stacking up in my notification tray and distracting me from other important notifications. (Note: This isn’t an issue for people who use iPhones. It’s just a little treat from Google to those who use the navigation app on the company’s own OS.) No matter which Android phone you use, the Maps app lets you turn notifications off one by one. But there’s a faster, easier way to filter all of those notifications if you use a phone that runs on Android 9 Pie software. You’ll find all of the steps below. Before you get started, note that the location of some menu items may vary slightly depending on the brand of phone you use. On any Android phone with Google Maps installed Open Google Maps, then tap the menu button in the top left corner of your screen Scroll down, then select “Settings” Once you’re here, find and tap on “Notifications” Here, you’ll see each of the notifications categories. You can open each one to deactivate any notification that doesn’t seem useful. On phones running Android 9 Pie software Long-press on the Google Maps app icon, then tap the “i” (information) button. This will take you directly to the “App info” page. Tap “Notifications” Here, all of those notifications are divided into separate categories, so you can scroll through the categories and deactivate whole sections of unessential notifications. You can also deactivate individual notifications within each category. Vox Media has affiliate partnerships.

Nerf just made an Overwatch blaster for Soldier 76 that actually looks good
Just in time for Pride week, Nerf is bringing us what looks like its best Overwatch-inspired blaster yet: a fully automatic, Nerf Rival ball-blasting, 30-round version of Soldier 76’s pulse rifle from the game, complete with lighting, “recoil action,” and a full mask with visor so you can look the part, too. It’s a GameStop exclusive that’ll cost $130 when it ships this November, so it’s not exactly cheap, and you’ll need six D-cell batteries to power it. But it’s notable for being the first Overwatch blaster that looks even remotely battle-ready. When we heard Hasbro was working with Blizzard Entertainment to bring our favorite Overwatch characters’ guns into the real world as foam-slinging blasters, we were tentatively excited — only to find they were glorified props. Clearly, Hasbro took D.Va’s cries of “Nerf this!” literally, seeing how her amazing in-game pistol turned into a basic pull-back Nerf gun that can only fire three times before you have to reload. (Don’t get me started on McCree’s one-shot “revolver.”) But Soldier 76’s blaster has an internal 30-round hopper you can easily fill as you’re running around, scavenging balls off the ground, and it fires those rounds fully automatically at 90 feet per second, after you rev up the motors. Sadly, Hasbro tells The Verge it’s not compatible with the Rival Rechargeable Battery Pack, so you’ll need those heavy D-cells if you don’t want to wire a LiPo in there yourself. Still, that price hurts. Even a licensed toy like Nerf’s Fortnite-themed AR-L Elite, a semi-automatic 20-round dart blaster, only costs $50. And if you don’t need to roleplay, Nerf has a similar hopper-fed, full-auto blaster, the $100 Nerf Nemesis, that holds 100 rounds at a time.

How the Rockets and Sixers can both win in a Jimmy Butler trade
Butler’s sign-and-trade is complicated. But if he wants to go home, the Rockets can make it worth Philly’s time. Daryl Morey got out in front of it. Almost immediately after a Yahoo! Sports report deemed the relationship between Chris Paul and James Harden as “unsalvageable,” the Rockets general manager shot down the notion as sternly as he could. “No, Chris Paul does not want to be traded,” he said on a June 17 appearance on Sports Talk 790. When asked if he would field calls on a Paul trade, Morey responded: “No. We want to add one more star to this team.” Nearly a week after Morey’s radio appearance, Houston’s ideal third star has been identified. It’s Jimmy Butler, the same player the Rockets had a chance to acquire from the Timberwolves in November, but couldn’t complete the deal. Minnesota, as you know, went on to deal Butler to Philadelphia for a package headlined by Robert Covington and Dario Saric. Morey is now attempting to atone for that misstep by forcing a sign-and-trade for Butler just as he enters free agency in a landscape that could feature 10 teams with max cap space. It’s ballsy and will take some serious cap gymnastics, but it sounds like Morey and Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta are on the same page, for better or worse. How would this work? Houston cannot sign Butler as a free agent. The Rockets have $77 million committed to Paul and Harden alone. Clint Capela is on the hook for the remaining four years of his five-year, $90 million deal. Eric Gordon and P.J. Tucker combine for an additional $22.3 million. The salary cap is only $109 million. Their best hope is what they’re attempting to do: trade everyone not named Chris Paul or James Harden, and siphon the assets off to Philadelphia for Butler. Reporting w/ @ZachLowe: Houston’s offering Clint Capela, Eric Gordon and PJ Tucker individually to teams w/ space to absorb salary. Rockets trying for best available first-rounder for any of those three, hoping to redirect pick to Philly in pursuit of Jimmy Butler sign-and-trade.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 26, 2019 If BUTLER truly desires to leave for his home region and a chance to compete alongside Chris Paul and James Harden, he would have to sacrifice some money to do so. The Rockets have no cap space, so they would only be able to pull this trade off so long as it falls in accordance with the league’s complicated base year compensation rules. Butler can only agree to a sign-and-trade at max Houston could offer him: four years, $146 million. Philadelphia can, and reportedly will, offer him the full five-year, $189 million max extension. If Butler chooses to leave the fifth years worth $43 million on the table and wishes to play in his home region, the Rockets can create the pathway for this to happen. For this to work, the Sixers would have to execute a sign-and-trade with the Rockets at Butler’s four-year max. This has to be a multi-team deal — it’s the only way it would be allowed by base year compensation rules. (This ESPN video offers a good explanation of base-year compensation). Math 101: Breaking down a Jimmy Butler sign-n-trade and why Base Year Compensation matters. pic.twitter.com/mssigMofmg— Bobby Marks (@BobbyMarks42) June 25, 2019 Houston would then find deals for two or all three of Tucker, Gordon and Capela, then redirect those assets to Philadelphia as a hat-tip for facilitating the trade. The Sixers would not need to take back any salary; they could create a traded player exception worth Butler’s Year 1 salary of $32.7 million. They could then renounce that trade exception, creating cap space to add a new max free agent or multiple key players to their rotation, or use it if they stay over the cap. It remains to be seen, though, if Houston will fetch assets for their players. If the Knicks strike out on their top free agents, fashion icon P.J. Tucker would make a great fit in New York City. Gordon is a bona fide hooper, and any team angling for a championship would love to have him on their bench, but he’s getting up there in years. Moving Capela might be tricky because of the length of his contract. Case-in-point: The Celtics are interested in acquiring him, but The Boston Globe’s Adam Himmelsbach reports a deal is “unlikely” because Boston “would not have interest in surrendering the players needed to complete the trade.” But Capela did post career-highs in scoring and rebounding last season. He can help a team, that much is certain. The Rockets’ odds at landing Butler will rest on their ability to move these players. This will be easier said than done, and it wasn’t easily said at all. But Morey found a way to finesse Chris Paul from the Clippers, then re-sign him to a long-term deal. If anyone can pull this monstrosity of a deal off, it’s him. This, of course, is assuming Butler wants to leave the Sixers If Butler doesn’t want to leave, Philadelphia would have no incentive to trade their prized free agent to a championship contender. The Sixers had been confident they’d not only be able to re-sign Butler, but Tobias Harris, as well. And for good reason: the lineup of Butler, Harris, Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and J.J. Redick only played 11 regular season games together before their playoff push. It was the second-best starting lineup behind the Warriors during that stretch. But Philly’s playoff run ended with a Kawhi Leonard buzzer beater that tapped the rim four times before ending Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. It could have very well been the Sixers in the Raptors’ place, had Leonard’s shot tapped the wrong way that fateful night. The Sixers owe it to themselves to run it back, and the bond Butler formed with Embiid was undeniable. That team still has room to grow. Remember: the Sixers gave up Saric and Covington for Butler, then most of their other young players and assets for Harris. Pressing the big red button so soon would mean sacrificing so much for a second-round exit. The ball, however, is not in Philadelphia’s court. It’s in Butler’s, unless they take an adamant no-trade-to-Houston-on-our-watch stand. One more wrinkle: Which team has an easier path to championship contention? The East could be even more competitive this season depending where Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard and Kemba Walker land in free agency, but it won’t be nearly as ridiculous as what's out West. The Lakers have Anthony Davis, LeBron James and at least $23 million in cap space to sign one or multiple free agents The Nuggets grew up last season, drafted Bol Bol, and could have Michael Porter Jr. back from injury The Jazz just traded for Mike Conley and could still have $17 million in cap space to add to Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert Paul George just placed third in both MVP and Defensive Player of the Year voting, and the capped-out Thunder are reportedly looking to improve via trade just like Houston The Clippers have cap space to sign two max free agents Portland just went to the Western Conference Finals You can never count Gregg Popovich and the San Antonio Spurs out The Warriors without Kevin Durant were still enough to beat the Rockets in Games 5 and 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals That’s eight teams already, and who knows what happens with other teams like Dallas, Minnesota and Sacramento. The Rockets will also need to fill the other ten spots on the roster with limited funds. It will be a challenge: players willing to take pay cuts for championships will have multiple options this summer. It all boils down to Jimmy Butler, and what he wants to do with his future. Philadelphia can facilitate his route to Houston, so long as the Rockets pay the toll. Or they can convince him to stay and run it back with a team that came just a tap short last season. Either way, Daryl Morey creating this option for Butler and the Sixers is genius in and of itself. Scared money don’t make no money, and the Rockets are going all-in on themselves.

How China ingests and adapts western culture
Back in January, Amy Hawkins and Jeffrey Wasserstrom published a fascinating, nuanced look why Chinese state censors had banned the mention of Orwell's "Nineteen Eighty-Four" on social media, but not the book itself. Now, the pair are back with a wider look at the way that Chinese authorities and the Chinese people adapt western culture for both a local audience and local politics. Some of this is just funny twists of syncretism, like Santa Claus invariably being depicted with a saxophone (!), but there's a much more interesting and meaty political story. Hawkins and Wasserstrom begin their story with the adoption of Marx's ideas by the Chinese Communist Party, producing "socialism with Chinese characteristics" and banishing Confucionism to the scrapheap of history -- and how that turned into today's "capitalism with Chinese characteristics," overseen by Xi Jinping, who describes himself as being a fan of both Marx and Confucious. Another deeply contested western idea is International Women's Day, which has taken on many meanings at different times in Chinese history -- being celebrated as a tribute to women who stayed home to care for family, then as a holiday celebrating the revolutionary cause of women's equality, finally turning into a shopping holiday where companies offer discounts on spa treatments (one Beijing pizza chain offered 50% off to women -- but only for salads). This fluxuating nature of political meaning for western symbols is neatly described in the rise, fall, and rise again of Peppa Pig, who entered China as a counterculture icon for millennials, with a fad for Peppa tattoos leading the state to denounce Peppa as "an unexpected cultural icon of gangster subculture in China." But Peppa was rehabilitated by the state, who drafted Alibaba Pictures to produce a Peppa movie embodying Confucian values, wiht a story about "a rural grandfather who makes a Peppa Pig toy to bring to his grandson in the city at Chinese New Year." Likewise with rap music: first it was banned as "tasteless, vulgar and obscene," then it was rehabilitated with a state-sanctioned TV reality show called The SHow of Rap, and now China exports made-in-China hiphop around the world.

Why CBP won't accept supplies for separated children in migrant detention camps
