Kanji tutor/Near future must read/Where goes?

Kanji tutor:
In the last six months I’ve learned over 500 kanji characters and Japanese vocabulary words using WaniKani, a “spaced repetition system” flashcard website. The first 3 levels are free, after that you can pay by the year or buy a lifetime account. (Disclosure, my wife used to work at WaniKani’s parent company). — MF

Authentic bling:
My wife picked a small cubic zirconia synthetic diamond for her engagement ring. Because it is just one carat it looks like a diamond. Nobody can tell it is synthetic. Really. It cost $24. Real diamonds are a ripoff. — KK

Watchable:
I enjoy the occasional Joe Rogan rant, because he can be very enlightening. Thankfully, his video on Happiness is short and straightforward, and surprisingly uplifting. Personally, I struggle with “[Happiness is] not having all your ducks in a row on paper,” so this video is a good reminder.  — CD

Near future must read:
The juiciest source I know for what’s new in the world of artificial intelligence, biotech, and the near future is the free weekly newsletter from Azeem Azhar called Exponential Review. His succinct list of links, annotated with his remarks and degree of confidence of its importance, are a telegraphic way to keep up easily and quickly. I’ve found more good stuff from him that no one else is pointing to. — KK

Travel razor:
This small $15 electric razor from Philips Norelco uses 2 AA batteries. I bring it with me when I travel and have started using it at home too, because it works so well. — MF

Short link tool:
If you’re avoiding clicking on a link because it’s shortened or you don’t know or trust the sender, copy and paste the url into WhereGoes.com. It’ll show you the entire path of redirects so you know exactly where it goes. — CD

Hover: Revolt Of Gamers Available Now

https://static.gamespot.com/uploads/scale_super/1579/15795667/3242800-hover1.jpg

After a successful Kickstarter that raised over $116,000 in 2014 and years in early access, Hover: Revolt of Gamers is finally available on PC, Mac, and Linux.

Three developers strong from Montpellier, France, Fusty Games took their love of Sega’s 2000 hit Jet Set Radio and modernized it. In their world, all forms of videogames and entertainment are outlawed. You’ll fight back against the oppression by vandalizing propaganda and helping citizens along the way with the same fun and familiar parkour moves of Jet Set Radio.

The game features nine different playable characters, two open world stages, four linear stages, and a multiplayer mode. In multiplayer, you’ll be able to play competitively or cooperatively in races, chases, minigames and more.

Hover also features 17 original electronic songs by Jet Set Radio composer Hideki Naganuma. The full score is available as DLC.

To celebrate the launch, Hover will be 20 percent off $19.99 for a limited time.

きみのおと (with 辻林美穂) by happy machine

words&voice: 辻林美穂

https://happy-machine.bandcamp.com/album/sweet-songs

また指で なぞってる
ふと聞こえてきたメロディー
宝箱あけるような笑顔
ふたりの会話なんて そっちのけ

突然歌い出しても
全然おどろかないよ
散らばったピースが ぴたり
はまった合図だから

ドレミをならべて
耳元で唱えるよ
目の前の景色が
壊れてしまっても
つまずいても
心がいつか 思い出せるように

音の鳴る雲をながめては
ハサミでチョキチョキ 何をしてるの?
ハズレくじ引いたようなため息
ひとりの世界の中 こもりきり

5つならぶ線の上に
12色の絵の具で
誰かの時間(とき)を彩る
頭を傾げながら

ドレミをあつめて
星空で奏でるよ
暗闇が行く手を阻んでしまっても
つまずいても
心がいつか 導けるように

まどろみの渦
なつかしいメロディー
モノクロの破片が
鮮やかに色づいて

記憶をならべて
そっと口ずさんでみる
あの時の 日差し 香り 口癖に
涙がこぼれた

ドレミをならべて
ずっと歌い続けるよ
目の前の景色が
汚れてしまって
崩れ落ちても
心がいつか 思い出せるように https://i1.sndcdn.com/artworks-000226004272-dk6lp4-t500x500.jpg

PJ MASKS

By day, best friends Connor, Amaya and Greg look like pretty normal 6-year old kids. They hang out like normal kids and go to school just like normal kids. But when something goes awry in the city, these special friends, filled with curiosity and a sense of justice, get ready for their mission – but they have to wait until nightfall when the city is asleep and they can go undetected. Instead of going to bed like all the other children, Connor, Amaya and Greg activate their cool bracelets and pull on their pyjamas to magically transform into super heroes and become The PJ Masks.

Meet Catboy – who’s super-fast and agile, Owlette – with the ability to fly and see great distances, and Gekko – who is super strong and can scale walls. Together, Catboy, Owlette and Gekko go on the wildest of adventures, stop crimes, defeat villains, solve mysteries and learn important lessons in this action-packed animated Disney Jr series the whole family will enjoy!

‘It’s time to be a hero!’ so grab your super hero pyjamas and join the PJ Masks!

CONNOR aka ‘CATBOY’
‘Furballs!’ Here comes Catboy! When Connor needs to fight crime, the fearless leader of The PJ masks transforms into Catboy! Thanks to his cool feline skills, he has super hearing using his Cat Ears, can leap super high and super far using his Super Cat Jump and sprints fast using Super Cat Speed. Armed with all these skills plus a super cool Cat Car, Catboy really is ready for everything and on hand to help save the day!

AMAYA aka OWLETTE
‘Fluttering feathers!” Here comes Owlette! When Amaya transforms into Owlette she has a cool red cape that can magically turn into Super Owl Wings so she can fly through the night sky. Luckily she also has Owl Eyes which help her to be able to spot villains in the dark who are up to no good. She swoops through the sky fighting crime using her cool Owl Glider and is an awesome member of The PJ Masks.

GREG aka GEKKO
‘Leaping lizards!’ Here comes Gekko! Gekko is the youngest member of The PJ Masks and transforms into a cool green reptile! He can use his Super Gekko Camouflage to change colour and blend into the background, use his Super Gekko Muscles to lift heavy things, Super Lizard Grip to climb walls and Super Lizard Water Run to help him walk on water! And when he needs to get to the bottom of things, he can rely on his cool Gekko-Mobile, his amazing underwater car!

THE NIGHTIME VILLAINS

ROMEO
Romeo is one of the nighttime villains and a crazy inventor and scientist who drives his mobile laboratory throughout the city determined to beat the PJ Masks and take over the world!

NIGHT NINJA
The Night Ninja is a mysterious nighttime villain who controls a bunch of minions called the ‘Ninjalinos.’ They are more than happy to do their masters dirty work but their plans are always foiled by The PJ Masks!

LUNA GIRL
Flying through the night skies on her ‘Luna Board’ is Luna Girl, a clever nighttime villain who can control things with her Luna Magnet. This mysterious nocturnal baddie is followed by a swarm of Luna Moths who help her in her dastardly deeds

Words

redoubt

redoubt


Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day for June 4, 2017 is:

redoubt • \rih-DOUT\  • noun

1 a : a small usually temporary enclosed defensive work

b : a defended position : protective barrier

2 : a secure retreat : stronghold

Examples:

From his redoubt on the ninth floor, the fugitive could see the line of police cars that had surrounded the building.

“Near Moore’s home were the remains of the old earth walls of Fort Marcy built by Zachary Taylor’s soldiers in 1845. These were dirt embankments, or redoubts, but there really was no ‘fort’ except on paper.” — Murphy Givens, The Corpus Christi Caller-Times, 15 Mar. 2017

Did you know?

Based on its spelling, you might think that redoubt shares its origin with words such as doubt and redoubtable, both of which derive from the Latin verb dubitare, meaning “to be in doubt.” But that’s not the case. Redoubt actually derives via the French redoute and the Italian ridotto from a different Latin verb—reducere, meaning “to lead back,” the same root that gives us reduce. How that b ended up in redoubt is a lingering question, but some etymologists have posited that the word might have been conflated with another redoubt—a now-archaic transitive verb meaning “to regard with awe, dismay, or dread.” Unlike its homographic twin, that redoubt does derive from the same root as doubt and redoubtable.
