Enlarge 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.Enlarge 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 Apple
Iran-born Swedish author Jila Mossaed is photographed in Gothenburg, Sweden, on 5 October 2018. Photo: ReutersThe Swedish Academy, which awards the Nobel Literature Prize, on Friday announced an Iranian-born poet and a judge as new members as it seeks to recover from a #MeToo scandal that forced it to postpone this year’s Nobel.Eight of its total 18 members have either resigned or are on hiatus due to a deep rift within the Academy on how to manage its long-standing ties to a Frenchman recently convicted of rape.For the first time in 70 years, it postponed this year’s literature prize by a year while it attempts to sort out its problems.The election of Jila Mossaed, a 70-year-old Tehran-born poet who writes in Swedish and Persian, and Supreme Court judge Eric Runesson, brings the Academy’s active members to a quorum of 12.Members have traditionally been elected for life, but with several members no longer actively participating and in order to ensure the venerable body’s survival, its patron, Sweden’s King Carl XVI Gustaf, changed its statutes to make it possible for members to resign and be replaced.”The election of two new members is positive. I hope the Swedish Academy will be given the opportunity to continue rebuilding the trust of the institution and that the Academy can now continue its important work,” the king said in a statement.”My words were not appreciated in my old home country, but my new nation is offering me one of the best literary positions because of what I write,” Mossaed, who’s been living in exile Sweden since 1986, told TT news agency.She replaces Swedish author Kerstin Ekman who ended her involvement with the Academy in 1989 over its refusal to condemn a fatwa issued by Iran’s former supreme leader Ayatollah Khomeini against author Salman Rushdie over his novel “The Satanic Verses”.Meanwhile, Runesson, who was born in 1960 and has also worked as a professor at Lund University, jokingly referred to himself as an “ignorant hellion” compared to his other Academy colleagues.”This is about two people with strong integrity, who with their different backgrounds, knowledge, and competence complete the Academy in a welcome and interesting fashion,” author and member Peter Englund told TT news agency.
A diet missing soluble fibre promotes inflammation in the intestines and poor gut health, leading to weight gain, suggests new research. 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. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The research team at Georgia State University examined the effects of diets varying in amounts of soluble and insoluble fibres, protein and fat on the structure of the intestines, fat accumulation and weight gain in mice.The researchers found that mice on a diet lacking soluble fibre gained weight and had more fat compared with mice on a diet including soluble fibre. The intestines of mice on the soluble fibre-deficient diet were also shorter and had thinner walls. These structural changes were observed as soon as two days after starting the diet.

This popular Indonesian attraction is set to close for one year Posted by << Previous PostNext Post >> Thursday, January 31, 2019 Travelweek Group JAKARTA — The Dinosaur Age may soon come to an end – again.According to The Jakarta Post, Komodo National Park, one of Indonesia’s most popular attractions, will close for one year to increase the local population of Komodo dragons and the deer they prey on.The exact dates of the closure have yet to be announced.Viktor Bungtilu Laiskodat, Governor of the East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) administration, said that the temporary closure will allow the provincial administration to more effectively manage the park and develop the dragons’ habitat.He also said that dragons in the current population aren’t as big as they used to be, which he blames on a decline in the local deer population due to poaching.With fewer deer to eat, Viktor also said there’s a chance that the lizards could start preying on their own kind to survive.“It’s natural instinct will emerge when [the population of one of the animals] in the komodo dragon’s food chain declines,” he said. “If food is abundant, the Komodo dragons will [use] a different instinct. This is why the administration wants to manage the Komodo dragon’s habitat by temporarily closing the area to visitors for one year.”More news: A new low for no-frills flying: easyJet assigns backless seat to passengerKomodo National Park is located between the provinces of East Nusa Tenggara and West Nusa Tenggara, and comprises three large islands – Komodo, Padar and Rinca – as well as 26 smaller ones.
