A day after publicly endorsing his wife and her new show, beleaguered actor Chris Noth was seen shopping at a jewelry store in the Berkshires of Massachusetts.

The numerous sexual assault charges filed against Noth late last year that essentially destroyed his career appear to be behind him and his wife of ten years, Tara Wilson.

After Wilson was caught in public without her wedding ring, the controversy sparked rumors that the couple might be divorced or split, but it appears the TV star’s marriage is holding on.

Exclusive footage captures Noth, 67, leaving Lennox Jewelers on the town’s main thoroughfare on Friday while clutching a red gift bag.

A day after publicly endorsing his wife and her new show, beleaguered actor Chris Noth was seen shopping at a jewelry store in the Berkshires of Massachusetts.

The numerous sexual assault charges filed against Noth late last year that essentially destroyed his career appear to be behind him and his wife of ten years, Tara Wilson.

After Wilson was caught in public without her wedding ring, the controversy sparked rumors that the couple might be divorced or split, but it appears the TV star’s marriage is holding on.

“The family are over the moon with the premiere of their new play by Tara at the @berkshiretheatregroup,” he said.

“A woman portraying a black teenager accused of murder is forced to confront truths about marriage, race, the decisions she made, and the silent lies she told herself to abide by,” according to the synopsis. of the room.

Since the sexual assault charges surfaced, the former The Equalizer star has only occasionally been photographed with his wife.

Noth, who is also the father of Tara’s two-year-old son Keats, was pictured wearing her wedding ring while she was without hers.

The 42-year-old Canadian and the 67-year-old Wisconsin-born, Connecticut-raised man just celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary on April 6.

The Hollywood star’s most recent activity on social media comes as he maintains a low profile following allegations of sexual misconduct which led to his exclusion from the Sex and the City reboot.

Due to allegations of inappropriate on-set behavior dating back to 2004, when he was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in Los Angeles, his acting career is in jeopardy.

Two women who went by the aliases Zoe, now 40, and Lily, now 31, claimed they were sexually assaulted by Noth in a Hollywood Reporter article published in December 2021.

According to the two charges in the report, the first assault took place in 2004 and involved Noth having sex with them from behind while they were both facing a mirror.

Three years after Noth and Tara got married in 2015, the second alleged incident allegedly took place.

Noth gained fame for his portrayal of John James Preston, popularly known as Mr. Big, in the 2008 and 2010 films as well as the original television series Sex and the City, which ran from 1998 to 2004.

After claims surfaced, he was killed off the show; in the first episode of the remake, which debuted in December last year, his character died of a heart attack.

What is Tech? Should you keep your car insurance card on your phone? https://androidappscritic.com/what-is-tech-should-you-keep-your-car-insurance-card-on-your-phone/ Tue, 14 Jun 2022 20:41:00 +0000 https://androidappscritic.com/what-is-tech-should-you-keep-your-car-insurance-card-on-your-phone/ Job : June 14, 2022 3:41 PM CDT by Alabama Information Network Staff 49 states now accept digital proof of auto insurance, two states accept digital driver’s licenses, and Apple says 11 more states are working to add the option in the near future.

Job :

49 states now accept digital proof of auto insurance, two states accept digital driver’s licenses, and Apple says 11 more states are working to add the option in the near future.

This means people can store these official documents on their iPhones and open the Wallet app when someone asks for proof of license or insurance.

But is it a good idea?

Consider this: You’re asked to show proof of car insurance at a traffic stop, and you have to hand the officer your unlocked phone. It is always best to keep a hard copy of this insurance card in your glove box or console. But let’s say you haven’t replaced an expired proof of insurance card with a new one. The only proof you will have is on your phone.

There are other times when we share our phones with someone else. Maybe it’s a friend who wants to play a game, a friend who wants to read a book on your Kindle app, or someone asking to text someone. I don’t want anyone using my phone but if it is necessary to hand it to someone unlocked there is a way to prevent them from seeing anything without
permission.

This is a setting you should change if you ever give your phone to someone. On an iPhone: Open Settings then Accessibility, then scroll down the screen to turn on “Guided Access”. It is disabled by default.

When you move the slider to the right to enable it, you will be asked to create a password. This is not the password you use to unlock the phone. You can set it as the same or any new password (just remember what it is).

When someone needs to watch a certain app on your phone, before handing it over, open the app they need to use and click the power button on the side 3 times. You will see a pop-up window for Guided Access. Tap it and it will prevent them from opening another app or navigating away from the app you have allowed them to use.

To turn off Guided Access, triple-click the side button and enter the password you just set up to unlock the phone.

On an Android device: go to settings and security, and at the bottom of the screen, open the “Advanced” options. At
at the very bottom of the screen, activate “App Pinning”.

On the screen showing all open apps, long press the icon of the app you want to pin. This will pin any open app, preventing someone from opening and closing apps or navigating away from the app you pinned.

To turn it off, press and hold the back button and the home button simultaneously, which will open the locked screen where you can re-enter your password to unlock the phone.

This may be different on other Android phones, so you may need to dig a bit into the security settings to find App Pinning.

Guided Access and App Pinning don’t change the way you use your phone now, so you can set it up ahead of time (just make sure you don’t forget the new passcode on an iPhone ).

Today at the WSOP: Busy Monday in Stores as Three Tournaments Wrap Up https://androidappscritic.com/today-at-the-wsop-busy-monday-in-stores-as-three-tournaments-wrap-up/ Mon, 06 Jun 2022 14:54:51 +0000 https://androidappscritic.com/today-at-the-wsop-busy-monday-in-stores-as-three-tournaments-wrap-up/ As the second week of the 2022 World Series of Poker prepares for launch, there will be plenty of business to do starting Sunday. “The Housewarming” will meet under one roof for the first time, while a second event failed to reach a champion early Monday morning.

As the second week of the 2022 World Series of Poker prepares for launch, there will be plenty of business to do starting Sunday. “The Housewarming” will meet under one roof for the first time, while a second event failed to reach a champion early Monday morning. Add the other action around Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas and the program is full of poker action for the railbirds in attendance.

“The Housewarming Party” begins on the second day

For the first time since its launch, the first mega-tournament of the 2022 WSOP calendar, “The Housewarming”, will be brought together under one roof. On Sunday, however, there were trivial things to tie together – like how many entries would be officially reserved and what the eventual prize pool would be.

The last flight of the $500 buy-in event drew a monstrous 7,268 entrants during the day on Sunday, pushing the total number of entries above the 20,000 entry mark (20 080, to be exact). The $5 million guarantee that WSOP officials placed on the event was breached, creating a prize pool of $8,435,280. After another 399 fighters survived the Day 1D carnage, the total number that will advance to the Day Two game is 899 players.

You would think that with the massive number of chips in play, the Day 1D chip leader would have amassed a huge stack. That wasn’t the case in this tournament as Tyler Gaston was only able to pick up 4.51 million chips to enter the second day action. That wasn’t enough to knock George “Tony” Degon off the top of the overall standings, though:

1. George “Tony” Degon, 4.655 million (Day 1C chip leader)
2. Tyler Gaston, 4.51 million
3. Justin Liberto, 4.225 million (Day 1A chip leader)
4. Gianluca Pace, 4.085 million (Day 1B chip leader)
5. Jong Kim, 4 million

The action will resume at the poker-unfriendly hour of 10:00 a.m. (PDT) Monday morning, with plans to play either 17 levels of action or up to five players, whichever comes first.

Event #7 goes into overtime

Three days were not enough to determine the champion of the $1500 Omaha Hi/Lo Eight or Better tournament. Scheduled to end Sunday night, two players battled into the early hours of Monday morning and still couldn’t find a champion. So those two players – Day Three chip leader Amnon Filippi and Matt Vengrin – will return Monday afternoon to determine the champion.

Twenty-six players returned on Sunday, which should have told WSOP officials to prepare for a long night. Due to the split pot nature of any Hi/Lo game, the process can be extended for an extremely long period of time. Filippi started the day leading the pack but was overwhelmed by Rami Boukai and David Funkhouser early in the action as some of the short stacks fell.

However, Filippi couldn’t stand this. In a monstrous pot three, Filippi made a Broadway straight against Funkhouser and Matt Glantz to pick up a three million chip pot and regain the lead. Filippi was also responsible for the knockout of veteran professional poker player Mel Judah, appearing at a WSOP final table for the first time in several years, in eighth place.

Filippi was in command, but Vengrin wouldn’t allow him to stray too far. Vengrin beat Funkhouser and Glantz to sixth and fifth place, respectively, as the WSOP curfew approached. After Paul Zappulla knocked out Murilo Figueredo in fourth place, the three remaining players were given the option of an extra hour to conclude the battle or stop at this point. They decided on another hour and the battle raged.

In that hour, only Zappella would leave at the hands of Filippi, but that didn’t mean there was no action. Filippi quickly took a huge lead over Vengrin, but just wasn’t able to take him to the felt to finish the event. So, these two men will return for action Monday afternoon at 3 p.m. (PDT) with the table set like this:

Amnon Filippi, 19.525 million
Matt Vengrin, 7.7 million

Brewer tops 15 finals in $25,000 eight-handed high roller

The 251 entries into the eight-handed $25,000 No Limit High Roller Hold’em tournament, event #8 on your calendar, are reserved for its last fifteen players. Chris Brewer, who managed to rack up 5.1 million in chips, will lead the way for Day 3 action. That’s barely ahead of Chad Eveslage (4.915 million) and Brek Schutten (4.61 million), who prepare for a big battle of the “high roller” titans on Monday.

1. Chris Brewer, 5.1 million
2. Chad Eveslage, 4.915 million
3. Brek Schutten, 4.61 million
4. Jake Schindler, 3.15 million
5. Dan Colpoys, 2.385 million

The action resumes Monday afternoon at 1pm (PDT), with the high roller action being part of the streaming package offered by PokerGO. Everyone is guaranteed a salary of $65,511, but the future champion will take the lion’s share of the prize pool, $1,415,610 and the WSOP bracelet.

Alex Livingston tops Seven Card Stud final table

Event #9, the $1500 Seven Card Stud tournament, will crown a champion on Monday. Alex Livingston will be the leader with his 2.495 million chips, the only player who is in this rarefied air. His closest competitors are Kenny Hsiung and John Racener, who also did well. The rest of the field has a tough line to hoe if they want to challenge for the title.

1. Alex Livingston, 2.495 million
2. Kenny Hsiung, 1.605 million
3. John Racener, 1.16 million
4. Thomas Taylor, 765,000
5. Brad Ruben, 725,000
6. Daniel Weinman, 660,000
7. Hojeong Lee, 585,000
8. John Evans, 170,000

By the way, we have our first “possibility of double bracelet” alert. Brad Ruben, last week’s $1500 Six Handed Dealer’s Choice champion, gets a chance to pick up some more gems. Ruben is going to have to take breaks to run for that to happen, though.

Friedman Four-Peat Declined in $10,000 Dealer’s Choice Championship

112 participants took on the challenge of another high roller tournament, the $10,000 Six Handed Dealer’s Choice Championship, but the dream will continue for only 51 of those players after the first day on Sunday. One such player who was eliminated was three-time defending tournament champion Adam Friedman, ending what has been a historic run at the WSOP. The field still has a chance to grow as registration remains open until the cards are released this afternoon.

Joao Viera’s 425,000 chips are currently leading the pack, but the pack is tight with no dominant player in the mix.

1. João Viera, 425,000
2. Mike Gorodinsky, 401,500
3. Nacho Barbero, 269,500
4.Richard Ashby, 250,500
5. Jean-Robert Bellande, 249,000

Other “high roller” names like Naoya Kihara, Jeff Madsen, Shawn Deeb and Phil Hellmuth lurk in the rankings. The action resumes at 2 p.m. (PDT), with the plan to reach the final six players.

Familiar names capture bracelets online

Two online tournaments wrapped up play on Sunday, with a few familiar names winning the jewels in each case.

In the $5000 No Limit Hold’em High Roller Freezeout, Norbert Szecsi managed to capture his third WSOP bracelet overall by beating Tony Dunst for gold. The final table was filled with top pros including Phil Galfond, Taylor Paur and Greg Merson. These three men came out in sixth, fifth and third place respectively. The win earned Szecsi his third WSOP bracelet and reserved a top prize of $288,850 to go with it.

With the “BIG $500”, the WSOP was looking to build buzz around a low buy-in event with a large crowd (like “The Housewarming”). Players responded, with 1,213 entries creating a prize pool of nearly $800,000. In the end, Germany’s Manig Loeser, who also won last year’s second WSOP online event, won the championship to win his second bracelet. Loeser dominated ‘omahabrian’ to win the championship and the first place check for $127,153.
