But what follows is a flurry of first-hand observations spanning from subtle details on the game itself to what it was like sitting in a section of trolling Bulls fans who chanted at John Henson that he looks like Barack Obama. Derrick Rose looked like the pre-injury Derrick Rose and it’s not just the Bulls fan speaking. The numbers back it up. For one, Rose’s 34 points is the most he’s scored in a game since March of 2012. Yes, it came in 10 extra minutes but Rose had 28 points in 38 regulation minutes, which is impressive in itself. This is the stat that should make Bulls fans and really, just fans of the NBA extremely happy. Rose exploded through the lane for what amounted to a number of memorable drives throughout the game. Sometimes they concluded in a bucket from a teammate, like a Mike Dunleavy Jr. corner 3 off an ooh-inspiring 1-handed no-look pass (3:10 above). Other times he pulled off a double crossover on Michael Carter-Williams for a 1st quarter buzzer beating floater (1:03). Or he darted through a trio of Bucks defenders and contorted his body around Zaza Pachulia like he was a giant orange cone for... That’s Rose at the end of regulation, ultimately getting fouled by 3 people and disappearing behind the basket stand and into a sea of cameramen and Bulls teammates.
It did not take long for the daily rhythms of prosperity to establish themselves at Hungry Ghost Coffee Bar and Café, a recent arrival in a gentrifying Brooklyn neighborhood. Around 10:30, the freelancers arrive and park themselves on stools at the bar along the wall, beneath a row of large mirrors, and open their MacBooks. Hungry Ghost, he says, became profitable in its second month. But by 4 o’clock, the freelancers pack up their things and Hungry Ghost empties. As one afternoon last August became evening, Uyaroglu found himself behind the counter in his nearly deserted café and thought: This is not right. By this point, Uyaroglu, who emigrated from Turkey in 2000, had become something of a mini café mogul in Brooklyn, with three cafés and a lobby concession for a local arts center. He had financed his third café with a Small Business Administration loan at 8 percent interest, but it took six months to close--the government shutdown added an extra month--and he didn’t want to wait another six months for the $20,000 or so it... He didn’t even consider a bank, after an early attempt to get an equipment loan ended with rejection. Since the recession, many banks have stopped issuing small loans, even to healthy businesses.
Ruark has addressed several of the failings of that previous model, as well as adding that Bluetooth wireless support, to make this an almost flawless table/bedside radio and music streamer. Ruark Audio R1 Mk3 – Design & Features The Ruark R1 is a gorgeous object, with a core that feels like it’s been hewn from a solid aluminium billet and wrapped in beautifully figured wood – although that woodgrain’s obscured if you’ve opted for one... The design is all very familiar, with a single round 3. 5-inch driver hidden behind a grille on the front panel, a screen above it, and the controls on the top, dominated by a large knob. The LCD screen on the R1 Mk2 was one area where it fell down, with appalling viewing angles that made it poor as a bedside clock. It’s not blazingly bright, but you can still read the time across a medium-sized room when the brightness is set to high – you can adjust the brightness separately for when it’s on and when in standby, which is a nice touch. One of the most significant changes from the Mk1/Mk2 to the Mk3 is to the controls, despite them having a familiar look. While we were disappointed by the limited control offered by the previous models’ rotary knob – it performed volume duties and nothing else – we’re pleased to see a far more logical system here.
