Some dogs prefer a pat on the head. Others crave a massing
service of physical attention. We hear about some races that have
literally approached my welcoming category.
ready for some surprises – I left the list of choices for dog breeds. Some
of the “most affectionate races”, such as the Labrador Retriever, off
the island voted. Guess it’s time that we humans give these breeds the
chance to put together credits for pampering.
First of all, we Vizsla are not sticky, dependent or needy. What
we are is passionate about people. We were bred
to hunt and recover in the forest, in the field and in the water. But
while we are true athletes, what we want most about the goal is love and a lot. But
don’t roll your eyes. After all, I bet that the humans of the Olympics
wake up embracing their loved ones too. And I don’t think we’re too old to
be little dogs. We weigh only around 50 pounds, and we can shoot in a
narrow heckuva ball.
for me, I like to sit on the lap of my human being with my front legs on his
shoulders. At the least, I rest my head on the feet of a family member. But
yes, people who crave personal space can be overwhelmed by us. Apparently,
the Hungarian aristocracy was not. They have developed us for love and for
hunting, and we excel in both.
2. Boston Terrier
Now, despite my misleading name, I’m not technically in the
Terrier group. I was, however, bred by Terrier lines, and would like to
see other types of Terriers entering the super-duper affectionate list. I’m
bursting with affection for my family. I embrace the cuddles and cuddle
them with the best of them. And not to fuck my horn, but I’m extroverted,
lovable, funny, kind and generous with kisses.
almost exclusively for company, I am called the American gentleman, partly
because my coloring seems apparently human smoking. It’s flattering, but
how about if we change? From now on, could you call me the affectionate
3. Great Dane
I happily admit that all the cartoons and photos of us that are
nestling with the family on the sofas are accurate (though, yes, sometimes
comic) illustrations of our loving temperament. Weighing about 150 pounds,
we are a gigantic breed with a huge desire for family love relatives.
for our heritage, we were developed in Germany (not in Denmark, by the way) to
hunt wild boar and protect property. Today we will still warn you about
neophytes in general, but our main occupation is camaraderie. We bond
closely with families who appreciate a strong dose of affection and at least
humor us when we pretend to be dairy dogs from time to time.
So, I guess when you go up the steps of a house with a
greyhound, you expect to find an active breed that runs around. Well, it
could be the case if you stop during the short session a day we want to run. But
more often than not, you’ll find me curled up in a ball, quietly sleeping next
to my favorite human. I am not excessively needy (I can actually rest
alone during the day rather well), but I delight in sharing warmth and physical
affection with my special humans.
we are an ancient race known for its remarkable speed, we are also renowned for
our kind spirit. Ah yes, but one last comment: keep in mind that as a
result of centuries of farming, I have an innate instinct to chase small
animals. So if I’m hugging you comfortably in the hammock, you might want
to make sure the courtyard gate is closed!
Flourishing with human interaction, we have worked alongside man
for centuries. You humans seem to enjoy the image of us on our hind legs,
but the odds are that it’s more fiction than reality. We are, however,
known athletes, developed long ago to hunt and keep the prey. We have
worked hard even in the world wars.
yes, we are powerful and sporty. But as the Vizsla rightly explained,
athletes also crave affection. We have a silly gene and we’ll do anything
for a laugh from our family. Furthermore, we love having fun in the
family, but especially children. We like the bizarre kisses of the little
ones as promptly as we give them.
The rings accompany the most
important moments of your life, they exalt them, and over time, they will be
witnesses of promises and sincere feelings.
Maybe you never thought about it.
Maybe you are not a romantic type but would like to do something special to
crown your love story and you don’t know how to do it. Yet you know that you
don’t like being the same as everyone else, that’s why you always try to put
your personal touch in all your choices, how you dress, where you go on
vacation, what you read, how you want other people to see you .
Just look for the opportunity to
express yourself and you would like the ring, the symbol of your love, to be unique
The engagement ring
The handing over of the
engagement ring is one of the most intense and delicate moments of life: it is
the moment of the Promise that two people make a commitment to each other and
no one for that moment wants any ring.
Tradition has it that man is the
one who donates the ring to his girlfriend but now nothing is taken for granted
or immutable. Many men create the magic moment and decide to choose the ring
together with their woman.
The wedding rings
Wedding rings are the concrete
sign of love and mutual fidelity. They are the rings that probably accompany
you throughout your life, they have engraved the name of the person you married
and with whom you will live all the adventures of the new family.
Who should give wedding rings as
gifts? There are different traditions in the world, very often they are the
witnesses of the couple who offer to give the rings as gifts. For example, in
the USA there is a tradition of giving the engagement ring together with the
wedding ring, which is kept intact until the wedding day. Once married, they
are welded together with the solitaire. The two rings become inseparable!
Symbolic and ethical importance of the rings
The rings are very important
objects that accompany the most important moments of your life, they exalt
them, and over time, they will be witnesses of promises and sincere feelings.
This is why the rings are so important for those who choose and wear them.
More and more people now choose
special rings for themselves and for the person they love, handmade by hand,
because they feel the desire to carry on their hands an object made with
passion and work and not simply a catalog item, maybe beautiful but maybe a
somewhat anonymous and cold.
However, only a few choose to
have a personalized ring made. They are people who love to take care of the
person they love and the gift they want to give them. They are not satisfied
with choosing from a catalog, but they dream of creating an object that
witnesses their feelings with metals and precious stones.
They want to devote time to the
design of the ring, embellish it with details of their love story and accompany
the artist in the realization of the object which will then shine forever on
the hand of the person to whom one loves.
More and more people want their
own ring with an ethical diamond (or more than one), whose provenance is
certified, to have a guarantee that workers have not been exploited for their
extraction (ethical diamond rings).
If you are reading these few lines,
you are probably trying to understand what your style is even when choosing a
ring. You can choose a ring that you have proposed in some store, that you have
seen in some magazine or movie, or that you have noticed on the hand of other
Now you know that if you want you
can also choose to have a ring that comes from some detail of your love story,
which is created by the hands of an artist just for you and that will be a
unique piece in the world.
It’s up to you then: what ring
does your love story deserve?
January 2013. It was still two years before CD Projekt RED
conquered the genre of RPGs with The Witcher III. Geralt de Rivia had not been
crowned as one of the maximum references in a matter of fantasy and swords and
the study was already beginning to make shade by showing his next project. A trailer,
a word and four figures: Cyberpunk 2077.
Why start talking your next game so soon? We want to think
that the ad itself was too mind-boggling to not feel excited and share. Enough
to blow our heads off, but leaving us with our feet on the ground with a
warning: it will come out when it is finished. Well, Cyberpunk 2077 is quite
likely to be the Sistine Chapel of the Polish studio.
A project simmered, of course, but we must also bear in mind
that Cyberpunk 2077 is postulated as the most ambitious videogame of the
current generation. Older words, especially coming from a CD Projekt RED that
unleashes his inexhaustible talent when something is his passion. As for
example, the original Cyberpunk.
The playable adaptation of Mike Pondsmith’s work was a dream
combination: it is no secret that Polish studio is passionate about
role-playing games, and that future ruled by mega-corporations had stimulated
the imagination of half the world, including Ghost in the Shell of Masamune
Shirow, the film Blade Runner or the acclaimed game saga Deux Ex. The expectations
were (and still are) outside the orbit.
And no wonder, CD Projekt RED has set itself the goal of
being the definitive adaptation of Pondsmith’s work, and that means moving
through swampy waters: we will change the papers full of numbers and crossed
out as well as the whim of some dice by controls, mice and keyboards, but the
real challenge of these digital rolemasters is to create the perfect game.
One that, as in the classic experience, is capable of
filling the imagination and the thirst for adventures of the players of all the
life, the passionate ones by the RPGs of consoles and desks and all that one
that is arranged to play the gaznate putting the noses in the city of Night
From paper and dice to ray tracing: A RPG in the first person
Coincidence or not, Cyberpunk 2077 will go on sale in 2020,
the year in which the events of the dystopian future imagined by Pondsmith take
place. In fact, there is a continuity between the two and we are ahead of us
will appear characters from Cyberpunk 2020 lore despite the fact that, in this
case, the action takes place 57 years later. How is it possible? Well, let’s
say that cybernetic implants have become an obsession … and the implant that
grants immortality will be ours in this adventure.
Mike Pondsmith himself is fully involved in the project, an
unbeatable endorsement for the fidelity of this adaptation, but also a
challenge for development …
The game will put at our disposal all kinds of
RPG (Crag, mercenary, netrunner, executive, nomadic …), which not only affect
our attributes and abilities, but also essential in the face of experience
offering lines dialogue and exclusive situations.
However, unlike other RPGs, we will not have the
option to choose class / profession at the beginning of the game. According to
Kyle Rowley of CD Projekt RED, the class system is fluid and will depend on our
choices: there will be three main classes: Netrunner, Techie and Solo and we
can combine them to access optional classes that we can add to our class.
The feeling of freedom and free will is the basis on which
the idea and experience itself is sustained. Cyberpunk 2077 takes us to a
megapolis obsessed with power, glamor and body modification, yes, and although
we will be exposed to all kinds of threats and interests, CD Projekt RED
ensures that the story will depend on our own decisions. What’s more,
annihilating other enemies will be totally optional.
In fact, the level of freedom is so advanced that even if we
fail a mission we will not lose the game: the world will follow its course and
we will only leave it when we finish the game session or we are eliminated. CD
Projekt RED completely leaves aside the failed mission screens of other open
worlds and welcomes the authentic role. To that in which we will have to give
everything at all times and in which not only our decisions count, but also our
actions and failures.
On the other hand, the visual section of Cyberpunk 2077 will
be absolutely transgressive. Beyond the ambition and the details, the Polish studio
will take advantage of the ray tracing for its next project, confirming a very
suggestive alliance with GeForce that, being optimistic, we can even enjoy in
the next generation of consoles thanks to the retrocompatibility.
“Ray tracking allows
us to recreate, in a very realistic way, the behavior of light in crowded urban
environments,” said Adam Badowski, director of the CD studio PROJEKT RED.
“Thanks to this technology, we can add another layer of light. Depth and
verticality to the already impressive magacity in which the game takes place.”
With that in front, how to play Cyberpunk 2077? In essence,
we will discover the best and the worst of the city of Night City in the first
person, emphasizing at all times that -though there will be shots and projectiles-
it is not a shooter.
The reason why you have opted for the view in the first
person is twofold …
On the one hand, we want to offer the player a
total immersion in the experience. Do not live from outside, but from within
and appreciate the small details that make the difference in this world.
Something that would not be achieved through other perspectives.
On the other, to give more burden to the
corporal modifications. Through this view we can see how effects and
consequences of implant use manifest, access information or allow us to take
advantage of the unique possibilities of the game.
Something very convenient, if we consider that V, our
protagonist and alter-ego in the game, will be who we want and how we want. We
can define its appearance and modifications, but also its character. And yes,
you will have a voice and a predisposition of your own that will be established
during the creation of the character. After all, Cyberpunk 2077 is a pure role.
Welcome to Night City: The new capital of sin
As important as the playable proposal of Cyberpunk 2077 is
the open world that we will have at our disposal. CD Projekt RED anticipates
that Night City will be a city that will establish a new reference in visual
quality, complexity and depth. And the first gameplays of the game give us an
idea of the magnitude of what is being talked about.
The priority of the more than 400 workers involved in the
development of the game was the creation of Night City itself, a totally
fictitious city that would be located between San Francisco and Los Angeles
with a layer of noir cut in terms of setting and that, in design issue,
combines the style of both cities.
Our open world, which will have complete cycles of day and
night, always radiates color thanks to the enormous presence of futuristic
neons, offering a very distinctive atmosphere. To which we must add a second
essential element: While The Witcher III and other maps are horizontally huge,
Cyberpunk 2077 will be vertically huge.
In terms of volume, we still do not have clear the
dimensions of the mapping, but we can expect six large districts with their
respective sub districts and the Badlands, the huge area that makes up the
surroundings of the city. Of course, to deal with it we will have all kinds of
vehicles ranging from motorcycles, cars, taxis and even Kyle Rowley has come to
suggest the possibility of controlling flying cars.
However, the third element that the experience will drink
will be its inhabitants. Although our games will be conditioned to our
decisions and actions, CD Projekt RED has not saved in means to fill Night City
with identity through the souls that swarm through it: while the
mega-corporates quench their thirst for power, the bands of each district
disputes control of the underworld.
And in the middle of that spiral of ambitions, we, a
mercenary pursuing a unique implant that allows us to achieve immortality.
Fortunately, we will not be alone: the character played by Keanu Reeves will be
the second most dialogue will have in the game. And his cover letter already
tells us that he has big plans for Night City.
And beware, there is an internal roadmap to expand content. Although,
at the moment the priority of CD Projekt RED is -logically- to launch the
Cyberpunk 2077: Date, Availability and Editions

Now that we prepare for the arrival of summer, Extreme temperatures can be commonplace in our day to day, so having an air conditioning system in the home can be a solution for overcoming the inconveniences that this changing climate can generate.
An air conditioning in which the
use of a thermostat is fundamental, being even better if it is an intelligent
thermostat. It is the way to control the temperature at home from anywhere,
even if we are absent from home and at the same time, benefit from our daily
use to learn and be more proactive. This is what the new Ecobee thermostat
A new model in which the company
leaves aside the nomenclature based on numbers as in previous models and opts
for a new type of names. The new model comes under the name of SmartThermostat.
With a very clean and polished
design, the SmartThermostat includes an LCD-type touch screen with glass cover
that facilitates the control of the most common parameters if we do not want to
use the controls by voice or through the mobile application Ecobee, available
on iOS and Android. The connection is made thanks to the support of 2.4 GHz and
5 GHz for dual band Wi-Fi.
Ecobee has made efforts to
improve the control of temperature and for this it has included a sensor
capable of controlling the temperature but also detecting the movement. This
allows you to know if there is any person in the room and adjust the
A model this SmartThermostat in
which highlights the inclusion of voice support to use Alexa and voice controls
so that it is easier to use without having to use our hands. In this way and
only with verbal commands we can control the temperature, turn off or turn on
the air conditioning … and if we have a compatible speaker, make a call or
send a message from the device.
To offer these functions, the
SmartThermostat includes a digital microphone accompanied by an AI system that
is responsible for improving natural language processing and speech detection.
In addition, the new
SmartThermostat allows thanks to the inclusion of a loudspeaker, its use to
listen to streaming audio services music case of Spotify (it is compatible with
Spotify Connect), Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, Pandora and TuneIn. And if you do not
want to use the thermostat audio, you can always transmit the music to a
speaker thanks to the new compatibility with Bluetooth connectivity.
The SmartThermostat offers an
advantage over other alternatives and is that it does not require an electrical
outlet nearby, because it includes a battery that grants autonomy that the
manufacturer figures in five years.
