今天早些时候,苹果在中国官网上已经上线了为 iPhone 11 系列准备的智能电池壳产品——iPhone 11、iPhone 11 Pro 和 iPhone 11 Pro Max 都有。如果要选官方保护壳的同学现在有了新选择。这次的更新不仅是像之前那样提供了多一块电池,而且还加上了独立的拍照按键。

苹果这条配件产品线最早从 iPhone 6 开始适配,不过也是断断续续的在推出,并不是每一代 iPhone 都有。这种“驼背”保护壳的设计在过去被不少粉丝吐槽,但也有不少用户为了实实在在的电池续航时间而选择它——相比第三方的移动电源,这种保护壳不仅带着更加方便,而且在 iPhone 的系统管理下是可以一并了解到电池壳的剩余电量的。

这次为 3 款 iPhone 准备的智能电池壳的价格都是 1071 元,整体仍然是硅胶材质,内衬用了保护手机的超细纤维,边框进行了弹性设计,方便手机的取出或者嵌套。配色上体现出了一点区别——为 iPhone 11 准备的电池壳只有黑白两色,iPhone 11 Pro 和  iPhone 11 Pro Max 的电池壳除了黑白两色之外还有一个粉砂色。按官方提供的数据,这次的电池壳将为手机延长电池续航最多到 50%

这次最大的变化是多了一个专门的快门键,它可以和 iPhone 完全联动,无论 iPhone 是否在解锁状态都可以直接启动拍摄功能,短按拍照片,长按拍摄视频,包括自拍下也支持——能多一个功能,倒是为这个配件系列增加了一些拥有的理由。

iphone11case_20191121122159_08.jpg

它当然也并不影响 iPhone 本身所支持的 Qi 无线充电,充电时也是同时在为 iPhone 手机和电池壳进行充电。当然它本身也是支持 Lightning 口有线充电的。那么,正在用 iPhone 11 系列的你,会考虑这个配件吗?

white snake review

For all the dominance that China has asserted on the movie industry in recent years, the country has not yet been able to gain a foothold in the animation market. There have been a few Hollywood productions co-financed or co-produced by Chinese studios, but no original films from China have yet to make a mark on outside of the country’s borders. And considering China’s rich cultural history and mythology — which has frequently been cribbed by Western animators — it seems like a long time coming.

White Snake, the second feature film from Beijing-based CG animation studio Light Chaser Animation, bears all of this baggage on its back and delivers a breathlessly imaginative and visually stunning animated film that is easily one of the most beautiful animated films this year. But for all its visual splendor, the story itself feels like an afterthought, too heavily inspired by the Disney films that it emulates.

Amp Wong and Zhao Ji direct White Snake, which acts as a prequel to the well-known traditional Chinese fable Legend of the White Snake In the original folk tale — considered one of “China’s Four Great Folktales” — a white snake spirit falls in love with a human man, who is unaware that his beautiful wife is an immortal demon. Their happy marriage is interrupted by a monk who tricks the man into giving his wife wine that reveals her true form, but their love overcomes the vengeful monk’s actions. White Snake hones in on the epic love story between the white snake, a beautiful woman named Blanca, and the human man Ah Xuan, a village snake hunter. Blanca is discovered by Xuan unconscious and amnesiac, unaware of her nature as a demonic spirit. To recover her memory, the two embark on a journey retracing her steps, and discover that she was part of a clan of snake spirits sent to assassinate a powerful general that had been harnessing the snakes’ powers. On their journey, they fall deeply in love but are met with countless obstacles, including Blanca’s beloved sister Verta, a green snake demon who harbors a grudge against humans.

The core narrative of White Snake is comfortably familiar — it’s Studio Ghibli’s Castle in the Sky meets Disney’s Tangled, and the film liberally borrows elements from each. The goofy slapstick of Disney films, complete with a snarky talking dog sidekick, sits a little uneasily alongside the elegant Ghibli-esque whimsy, and it frequently feels like White Snake is too heavily leaning on these well-known tropes to come into its own. Its main characters are like a collection of attractive attributes: Xuan is the rogue-ish Aladdin meets Castle in the Sky‘s noble Pazu, Blanca has the naiveté and powers of Rapunzel with the dignity of Sheeta, but with a dark past.

But there’s nothing inherently wrong with being a simple retread, especially in a film so eager to prove itself. However, what could have been a forgivable simple, if predictable, premise gives way to too much plot. White Snake has at least two false starts before the main story gets going, and even then, the front half of the film is loaded with flashbacks that only serve to make the narrative even more convoluted. This overly complicated structure is indicative of the many ambitions of White Snake: it wants to be a global hit that appeals to as wide an audience as possible, but it also wants the prestige of arthouse animated films. In the end, it lands somewhere in the confusing in-between: the silly antics and predictable plotting of kids’ films clashing with the steamy, adult-targeted romance at the center. Yes, this is an animated movie with a sex scene, which seems a strange element to have when you’ve got a talking dog who makes quips about being cowardly, or something. However, it is those kinkier elements that make White Snake stand out — one particular sequence with a sexy fox demon lady and her overly affectionate dwarf helpers is so bizarre and borderline kinky that it makes you wish for the more sensual version of this film.

White Snake‘s greatest saving grace is its jaw-droppingly gorgeous animation. The level of detail in the film is staggering, with loving attention given to the vibrant environments and the surreal experimental sequences that look like traditional Chinese calligraphy paintings brought to life in eye-popping 3D animation. While the character designs themselves are a little too Disney with delicate embellishments, they are perfect vehicles for the film’s breathtakingly inventive action sequences, which play like a Wuxia fight between superheroes. Despite the complicated plot contrivances toward the latter half of the film, White Snake finally comes into its own in the last half hour once it sheds the skin of the Disney and Ghibli films it’s trying to emulate and becomes an awesome action-packed spectacle.

With White Snake, China’s burgeoning animation industry shows it is technically gifted but unoriginal in its storytelling. Rather than relying on the well-worn tropes done in better Western and Japanese films, White Snake would do better by giving the spotlight to the fascinating, tragic fable upon which its based, and help find Chinese animation an identity of its own.

/Film Rating: 6.5 out of 10

11 月 20 日消息,Bottega Veneta 已经在大阪阪急百货男士馆开出了品牌旗下的第一家咖啡馆,这间 Bottega Cafè 就位于男士馆二楼 Bottega Veneta 的精品店里面,占地 55 平方米,整体风格和零售区域完全不同,不仅空间敞亮、“无边界”,并且色彩非常丰富且大胆。品牌希望以这样的方式来体现自己的意大利血统。

Bottega_cafe_20191121031938_01.jpg

具体来看,Bottega Cafè 的地面是多种威尼斯大理石构成的帕拉弟奥水磨石地板(Terrazzo Palladiano,之前我们报道的迈阿密首家 Bottega Veneta 精品店也是这个地板材质),霓虹灯牌是亮粉色的,此外还有蓝色的吧台、明黄色的餐桌,包括店内还有磨砂玻璃隔开的绿植区域——整体非常的“网红”。而咖啡色皮革和木质座椅的组合也让人想到 Bottega Veneta 品牌标志性的 intrecciato 编织图案。

Bottega Cafè 虽然名字是咖啡馆,不过店内提供的餐食还是相当丰富的,除了传统的意式咖啡,包括果汁、茶和葡萄酒等都有——葡萄酒都来自 Bottega Veneta 的诞生地——威尼托大区(具体是 1966 年在维琴察诞生的)。此外这里还可以点到各种甜点和咸点,逛店累了可以舒舒服服地来一份下午茶——也完全可以美美的拍上好久的自拍。

Young woman suffering from headache

I'm no stranger to the gym. I'm not a gym rat by any means, but I really do enjoy a good workout. With that being said, I also struggle with depression, and if I'm in the midst of a downswing, exercise doesn't really help. In fact, it often just makes me feel exhausted, overly self-conscious and critical of my body, and disappointed that I wasn't able to push myself as hard as I usually would.

Finding the motivation to go for a run or do squats is a lot to ask when you're struggling to even get out of bed.

Yet I've heard the refrain "You probably need to work out more" as a rebuttal to my feeling depressed for as long as I've been vocal about it. To an extent, I understand why people would say that. Everyone knows that exercise releases endorphins that make you feel good. I'll be the first to admit that, when I'm feeling more balanced, working out can put me in an even better headspace. There's even some research to suggest that exercise can help reduce symptoms of depression. But it's more complicated and nuanced than that. It's not that I don't understand the science. It's just that finding the motivation to go for a run or do squats is a lot to ask when you're struggling to even get out of bed.

Some days, I'm too emotionally drained to do anything at all. Fatigue is one of the most common symptoms of depression, and it can be debilitating. When you're feeling that way, being told to exercise - and then not being able to muster the strength - only makes things worse.

But even if I can physically go to the gym, I may not be in the right place for it, mentally or emotionally. People often fail to recognize that not everyone has the same relationship with exercise that they do. Working out may be a great way for you blow off steam, but when I'm feeling down, the last thing I want to do is fan the flames of my insecurities. Body issues have contributed to my depression in the past, and while I'm working on it, those feelings can resurface and make me experience the gym in a different way than I would when I'm healthy.

I know people just want to help, but the best thing you can do when someone opens up about their struggles with anxiety or depression is simply listen. Oftentimes, they're still learning their limitations, and some compassion and understanding can go a long way.

Never have I ever walked into the gym thinking, "I'm going to work on my ankles today!" It's probably my most ignored body part when it comes to strength training, but that's definitely not for my own good, especially as a runner and a lover of all things HIIT.

"Your ankles are comprised of a variety of muscles and ligaments that are used to absorb forces and propel your body when walking, running, changing direction, jumping, and hopping," Jason Machowsky, RD, CSSD, RCEP, CSCS, exercise physiologist at Hospital for Special Surgery, said.

"Having weak ankles can compromise performance and increase risk of injury of these activities."

But what causes someone to have weak ankles, exactly?

Sometimes it's a previous injury to the ankle, like an ankle sprain. Certain sports are linked with an increased risk of ankle injuries, too. Machowsky pointed to one study profiling ankle injuries in high school athletes thaat found that sports involving jumping in close proximity to other players and swift changes of direction while running had higher rates of ankle injuries.

Machowsky also noted that sports that involve high landing or change of direction loads - like gymnastics and certain styles of dance - may have a risk of ankle injuries.

Other times, weak ankles result from simply not performing exercises that promote adequate range of motion.

Building strength in your ankles not only decreases this risk of injury, but also allows "you to move more efficiently through your legs and create or absorb more force through the ground, which can certainly create more strength and power in the sport specific movements described earlier," Machowsky explained.

You can start to build strength in your ankles by adding in a few exercises to your warmup and within your leg workout routine.

Machowsky recommended these ankle-strengthening moves ahead.

"Easier versions can be done as a part of your warmup to get the muscles active," he explained.
"More challenging versions can be done as a secondary leg exercise after your primary leg exercises so you don't prematurely fatigue the ankles for harder activities - i.e., jumping, squatting, deadlifting."

Calf Raises

  • Stand in good posture near a supportive object like a table or back of a chair.
  • Use the muscles of your lower legs to raise up onto your toes and then slowly lower back down.
  • To progress, raise yourself up on both legs and then slowly lower down on just one leg. Alternate which leg lowers.
  • To progress further, raise yourself up and down on one leg only.
  • Perform eight to 15 reps of each, or as tolerated.

Single Leg RDL

  • Stand on one leg with the opposite knee raised and bent to about 90 degrees. Note: if balancing on one leg is challenging, you can start with just this and hold for a specific amount time, up to 30 seconds.
  • Slowly hinge at your hips, allowing your chest to fall forward as your butt and hips push back.
  • Maintain alignment from foot to knee to hip, don't let the knee fall in.
  • You should feel like you are working the glute/hamstring of the stance leg to control the motion down and back up.

When your ankles are tight, Machowsky recommended stretching and/or foam rolling to boost your range of motion and flexibility.

"Ankle stretching can be done standing in split stance (calf stretch) or with feet up on a wedge. You can hold the stretches with the knees straight, and then with the knee lightly bent to get the different areas of the calf," he added.

If you have any questions about how to work ankle stretching or strengthening into your gym routine, it's always best to consult the individualized help of a certified personal trainer or physical therapist.

I thought it was just your normal, average, post-race soreness. I've run nine half-marathons (give or take) and my feet usually hurt for a few days afterwards. I take my mandated two weeks off from running and things are usually fine.

Key word: usually. When I toed the starting line in November 2019, I'd been dealing with on-and-off foot pain for a few months, nothing that had kept me from training or running. But by the time I finished that 13.1, my foot was aching, top to bottom, side to side. I took some extra time off, got a new pair of running shoes, cut back on my non-running workouts. The Monday before Thanksgiving, I tied on my new shoes and ran seven miles. It felt great. I was healed! On Thanksgiving, I ran a Turkey Trot 5K with my family; the day after that, I went on another run. By the time I limped in the front door, I knew I'd pushed it too hard.

My foot started hurting during almost any physical activity, including walking, strength workouts, and even swimming laps. I didn't even think about running, because I could barely walk a mile without my foot twinging with pain. As the weeks passed and my foot still didn't get better, the dread started to mount. I had one more half-marathon coming up, right before Christmas in my hometown. My family and I had run this race since 2013; it was the first half-marathon I'd ever done. The course was gorgeous, winding from inland San Diego across canyons, through a sparse hilly forest, and finally to the beach. You cross the finish line with Pacific waves crashing 50 yards away. I earned my PR in this race. I'd never missed a year. And, more broadly, I'd never signed up for a race I didn't run. I finally had to admit that this would be the first.

On race day, I waited at the finish line with my mom. We parked up on a cliff with a gorgeous view of the ocean, but instead of going out to enjoy the panorama, I huddled in the cold front seat catching up on work. It was productive, but it was also punishment. I couldn't run (because I was weak, because I was scared of the pain), so I didn't deserve to have fun. I kept looking at the clock, calculating what mile marker I'd be passing. Five, six, seven; that's when the fatigue usually set in. Eight, nine, 10; that's when I'd get my second wind. Right about now, we'd come out of the trees, loop around the freeways, and finally glimpse the ocean. When I watched my sister and then my dad cross the finish line, smiling, sweat flying, I felt jealous and upset, and not just because I missed the race with them. I was disappointed in myself, like if I was just stronger, or less afraid, I could've run through the pain.

It's true that a lot of fitness is mental. Having the determination and willpower to work out when it's early, late, freezing, or sweltering; when you're anxious about failing; when you just don't feel like it. Over the years, I conquered those mental obstacles and progressed my training in a way I was really proud of, lifting weights, increasing my running distances. But I focused so much on the mental game and the results that I ignored the physical signs of burnout.

Actually, I didn't ignore them. I knew my foot was hurting, even before the November half-marathon that pushed it over the edge. I just didn't want to stop, so I didn't take it seriously. I kept running until I could barely walk.

Without question, deciding not to run my December race was the right decision. If I'd tried to run, best case scenario, I would've finished with my slowest time ever; worst case scenario, I wouldn't have finished at all. I certainly would have made what's now been diagnosed as a stress fracture much, much worse.

I finally listened to what my body was telling me, and it felt pretty sh*tty. Which - not to complain, but OK, maybe to complain a little - doesn't quite seem fair. I know doing the right thing doesn't always feel good, but I didn't expect it to feel actively bad. I was upset I missed my race and I was disappointed because I didn't just "push through." But when I finally got the diagnosis, I was angry for not stopping earlier, because forget about one dropped race; now I'm really paying the price, physically and financially. I've been wearing an exorbitantly overpriced protective boot for a month, and my doctor has ruled out not just running, but also weights and swimming. I can walk, but not the distances I'm used to. And I'm still dealing with the anger and disappointment, plus anxiety that the injury isn't healing as quickly as I expected.

I'm trying (key word: trying) to focus on what I can do. Right now, that means yoga, Pilates, and non-impact ab workouts every morning, because those are the only workouts I'm cleared for; improving my sleep schedule; and meditating to deal with the mental turmoil. I'm failing a lot of the time and trying to be OK with it. And I'm trying really, really hard to stop blaming myself, first for listening to my body and skipping the race, then for not listening to my body sooner.

My daily mantra, and the biggest, blaring, neon-lit lesson I've taken from this experience: "Pushing through the pain" doesn't mean "ignoring the red flags." There's a fine line between strength and stubbornness (or maybe stupidity), and I'm trying to get better at finding it. Skipping my race, scaling back my workouts, and getting treatment, none of that felt or feels great. Waiting around for this damn foot to heal is driving me up the wall, but I accept that it's what I need right now. I won't pretend to like it, but I know I'm doing the right thing.
