Rafael Nadal steamrolls to opening Monte Carlo win

Inquirer Breaking News - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 14:37
Rafael Nadal charged out of the blocks Wednesday to hammer Roberto Bautista Agut 6-1, 6-1 in his opening match at the Monte Carlo Masters. The 11-time champion showed no sign of the knee problems which forced him to quit ahead of an Indian Wells semi-final against Roger Federer a month ago. The 32-year-old had expressed pre-tournament caution regarding the health of his knee -- a worry which appeared to be groundless after a 76-minute masterclass. "I'm happy for this very positive start. I had good feelings on court," he said. Nadal collected the opening five games of the afternoon in 17 minutes as he set the tone for another dominant display in the principality. He wa...

New macOS function could let Mac owners use iPad as external display

Inquirer Breaking News - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 14:28
The forthcoming update to macOS (10.15), due September 2019, could bring a new native desktop extension mode allowing Mac owners to use their iPad as an external display, according to revelations from 9to5Mac. The project is reportedly codenamed "Sidecar." While it is already possible to use an iPad as an external display for Macs, thanks to paid-for third-party solutions such as Luna Display, the aim here is for Apple to integrate the function directly into its operating system. This would make it possible to view any application window open on your Mac directly on your iPad. The function promises to be extremely simple to use, with a new menu proposing the option to...

Inquirer Breaking News - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 14:27
NEW YORK --- The first big stop for James Dolan's plane will be to pick up Patrick Ewing, if the Hall of Famer wants a lift to Chicago to represent the Knicks at the draft lottery.

Airline requiring female crew to wear heels, makeup draws flak

Inquirer Breaking News - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 14:13
A Norwegian airline has come under fire after it required its female staff to wear heels, unless they have a doctor's note saying they have to wear flat shoes. They must also carry the doctor's note at all times and update it every six months. Apart from heels, Norwegian Air also required its female crew to wear cosmetics, such as foundation, moisturizer and eye makeup, among others. The policy was criticized by Norway's Socialist Left Party, according to Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang via The Independent on April 17.

Inquirer Breaking News - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 14:00
    MEMPHIS, Tennessee --- An arsenal of new technology is being put to the test fighting floods this year as rivers inundate towns and farm fields across the central United States.

Tips on How to Eat Healthy from Someone Who’s Always On the Go

Inquirer Breaking News - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 13:18
In an ideal world, we would have complete control of what are our meals are and the timing of when we eat them on the daily. Ideally. However, the reality is, we lead busy lives. We run from appointment to appointment. We eat what is readily available to us. We eat when we can. It certainly takes a little more discipline to make sure you eat healthy despite the busyness of life. That's the story of my life as well. I produce events for a living as my day job (or I'd like to say, as my all-day job!), so it can certainly get hectic. Because my job requires me to do various meetings outside the office, I am often on the go. This kind of lifestyle can make it quite difficult to eat cle...
