Last year, you’llrecall, it was “Magabrands”—an awkward term coined by Men’s Health editor andconference chair David Zinczenko who, as the conference progressed, took flakfrom media critics and attendees for coming up with such a convoluted, gooeyphrase to describe what magazines have been doing for years now. That is,extending their brands into new platforms to generate new revenue.While this year’stheme probably won’t be met with the same sort of vitriol, it’s just as … I don’tknow … ridiculous?

How to watch the 2019 Indy 500 today Livestream info start time

first_imgEnlarge ImageWe’re getting closer and closer to the 2019 Indy 500, and you’re going to need to know how to stream it. Patrick Smith/Getty Images The Indianapolis 500 is one of the year’s most significant motorsport events. Like most motorsports events, it’s getting tougher to watch if you’re a cord-cutter. We’re here to help you with that. Here’s how to watch the Indy 500 today.The first thing you have to know if you’re planning on getting your Indy on is when you actually need to sit down and watch it. The 500 will begin at 12:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, May 26. The 500 is named for the length of the race in miles, which works out to around 200 laps around the famed Brickyard.The easiest way for you to tune in online is if you have a cable subscription already, then it’s just a matter of signing onto NBC’s website with your login information and you’re all set. The odds are good though that if you’re reading this, you don’t have a cable subscription. So what can you do? • Huge variety of live channels, including HBO and the DVR storage is included Tags 2019 Jeep Wrangler review: First-place performance Streaming options for the Indy 500 $44.99 at Hulu YouTube TV Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy?

It’s not cheap at $44.99 per month, but it is an option. The other bonus of this program is that it includes a chunk of DVR space so if you want to prolong the magic, you can record the 500 and watch it again, like a weirdo. It also includes a subscription to regular ol’ Hulu, which has been pumping out some great original programming lately.The next choice is with YouTube TV. This costs around $49.99 per month, and the NBC Sports package is included with your monthly fee. The catch is that the NBC Sports deal isn’t available everywhere, so you’ll want to double-check and make sure that you can get it where you live. Like Hulu, you can also DVR shows for later.You can also choose to go with something like FuboTV. It’s another monthly subscription, this time it’s $54.99, but you get access to a bunch of channels, and it’s got a free trial offer that some people (not us, obviously) would be able to take advantage of to maybe see some hot wheel-to-wheel racing.102nd Running of the Indianapolis 500Enlarge ImageThe 103rd running of the Indy 500 is going to be a good one, and you don’t want to be the only one of your race-obsessed friends to not watch it live, do you? Patrick Smith/Getty Images Another pricey option, but one that gives you a lot of other TV-watching opportunities (including HBO) is DirecTV Now. Its standard package offers you 45 channels for $50 per month. There’s an upgraded package with more sports and movies for $70 per month, too. The cool thing about DirecTV Now is that you don’t need to have a DirecTV satellite package. It’s available as a standalone online subscription.Sling TV is another monthly option, but unlike the others, it’s got a sub-$30 cost, and that is awesome. Again you get a bunch of channels, and your game console probably has an app for it that you can download. The downside is that, once again, NBC Sports is only available in some markets. Double-check before you commit.Finally, those with naught but lint in their pockets and a dream in their hearts can tune into the Indianapolis Motor Speedway livestream. It’s free, it’s streamable pretty much anywhere, and we’re betting the coverage will be OK at the very least.Honorable mention goes to the HDHomeRun by Silicon Dust. This little gizmo allows you to watch live TV on your Apple TV or the like. The downside is that they start at around $70 and you need to buy a separate digital TV antenna. Still, it’s not subscription-based, so you can enjoy all the broadcast TV you want, indefinitely. You can also install Silicon Dust’s app on your phone or your computer to stream live TV to those devices as long as you have their hardware set up and receiving in your home.Finally, if you want to truly be a baller, go to the race. General admission is only $35, and you get the bonus of experiencing one of the world’s great motorsports events in person. You’ll have to figure out how to get to Indianapolis, but that can be another website’s problem. $25 at SlingTV Sling TV service DirecTV Hulu YouTube Apple 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better More From Roadshow Service 4 Photos $54.99 at FuboTV Comments Starting monthly cost (USD) Access to hundreds of shows and movies including original programming from Hulu plus all the live TV channels you probably want anyway Applelast_img read more

New CEO Bringing Lone Star Flight Museum To Houston

first_img Share 00:00 /01:47 X Listen – / 6A new $35 million, 130,000-square-foot facility is under construction at Ellington.Retired Lt. General Douglas Owens is in charge of the logistics of that move, as well as the museum’s ongoing success.      “If you go out to Ellington Field today, you will see the walls of the first two hangars that are standing. You’ll see the iron going up for the roof. So it is looking like a museum,” Owens says. Owens says the new museum will highlight science and history for students and aviation enthusiasts. The Galveston location opened about 25 years ago, but technology for museums has improved significantly. “It’s going to be a 21st century state-of-the-art museum, with exhibits that are up-to-date and that are exciting to view and be part of. And it’s going to inspire the young people of Houston toward careers in aviation, and help them appreciate that they will stand on the very broad shoulders of the great Americans that pioneered aviation in Texas and America,” Owens says.       The collection at the Lone Star Flight Museum is rare because most of the aircraft are flyable. Their B-17 Flying Fortress, B-25 Mitchell, P-47 Thunderbolt and other vintage aircraft often participate in airshows across the country. Owens says when the time comes, they’ll be flown the 30 miles from Galveston to their new home. “It will be an orchestration and a ballet — an aerial ballet, if you will — as we bring everything in. It might not happen all at once because we will use our volunteer pilot force that will help ferry those aircraft from Galveston up. So it’ll be a short flight, but a momentous one, as we open the doors to the new museum,” Owens says.    The new Lone Star Flight Museum at Ellington is scheduled to open by next summer.

Moreover, incorporating soluble fibre back into the diet can restore gut health, the research conducted in mice showed.Foods rich in soluble fibre include oatmeal, nuts, beans, apples, and blueberries.“If our observations were to prove applicable to humans, it would suggest that encouraging consumption of foods with high soluble fibre content may be a means to combat the epidemic of metabolic disease,” the researchers said.
