Tyga sued by Landlord for not paying rent

 - Celebrities - Nov 12 SHARE ON:

The landlord claims the rapper didn’t pay $32,000 he owed in April after moving out of the property after almost a year of renting it.  The landlord also says that Tyga left dents on the flooring of the kitchen, which contributed to $27,650 in repairs, as well as damaging marble floors and counters ($15,575) and walls ($103,160). 

A basketball hoop that damaged the driveway and new locks that destroyed the entrance door were allegedly installed by Tyga, none of which Tyga had permission to install. The landlord is suing for contract violation and demanding damages of over $200,000.

Pope is providing free Covid-19 tests for homeless people

 - COVID-19 - Nov 12 SHARE ON:

Pope Francis is providing free coronavirus testing in the Vatican to the poor and homeless of Rome, the Vatican said on Thursday. The declaration comes as part of the Day of the Poor of the Roman Catholic Church, which was diminished this year as a result of the pandemic. 

Swabs are being provided at a clinic off St. Peter’s Square, which the Pope set up a few years ago to provide basic medical services to homeless people, some of whom live on the streets of the Vatican neighborhood.

New device can stream music directly into your head, without headphones

 - Movies - Nov 12 SHARE ON:

This device uses a 3-D sensing module and locates and monitors the ear position sending audio via ultrasonic waves to create sound pockets by the user’s ears.  Sound can be heard in stereo or 3-D spatial mode that produces 360-degree sound around the listener, the company said. 

The official demo includes a short video of the swans on the lake, the buzzing bees and the babbling water, where the listener feels absolutely transported into the scene. CEO Christophe Ramstein finds it difficult to translate the idea into words. “The brain can’t comprehend what it doesn’t know,” he said.
