Did you watch Madrid play today? Thoughts on all the changes? asked by dislikethinkingofuniquenames

I watched a little at work while I worked out. I think it’s still early so I’m not surprised we were a bit unconvincing. But I have to say, I am SO excited about this team. There was a James shot on goal that was sort of amazing and I just started smiling. I LOVE that he’s ours. I’m sad Di Maria is gone. I’m sad that Real Madrid is the kind of team that rewards an amazing season (Di Ma last season) with a transfer just because shiny new toys (James) come along. But I accept it. And who didn’t fall in love with lil Hamez over the summer. I love that he’s ours, that he’s young and that he’ll only get better with age and experience. I love that we signed Kroos. I’m really excited about what he’ll bring. I’m thrilled that Gareth Bale didn’t play in the World Cup and that he seemingly just worked out non stop for 6 weeks and that he had a full pre-season with us. He’s phenomenal. I wish Arbeloa would get sold to a third division team in Russia. I’m still baffled by the goalie situation, that we bought a new one and sold Lopez. I love that Benzema scored today. I love that he renewed his contract and I love how much he loves this team. Basically I think this team could do unbelievable things this season. I think we’re a force to be reckoned with. I can not wait to see what we’re capable of.

Basically I love this team.

Sleep-Tracking Data Shows Who Was Jolted Awake By The Napa Earthquake
At 3:20 a.m. on Sunday morning, a magnitude-6.0 earthquake struck 9 miles south of Napa. It was the strongest quake to hit the Bay Area since 1989.
Now data prepared by Jawbone data scientist Brian Wilt gives us some insight into how strong the jolt was, using anonymous biometric data taken from thousands of Up health trackers worn by NorCal users affected by the quake.

Capturing the Moods of the Sea with @rochajuliana

For more photos from Copacabana’s moody shorelines, follow @rochajuliana on Instagram.

“I am not sure where Copacabana beach ends and Juliana begins,” says Brazil Instagrammer Juliana Rocha (@rochajuliana) of her #copacabanasentimental photo project. Each day, Juliana shoots Rio de Janeiro’s Copacabana beach in an attempt to capture the beach’s daily moods through photography and witty captions.

Although she’s originally from Brazil’s Northeastern state of Ceará, Juliana has always felt a draw to Copacabana over the eight years that she has lived in Rio. “The beach is the place where the ocean meets the sky,” she says. “Its infinite nature symbolizes everything that is unknown about life.” Her photo series began on a day when she came up with what she describes as an “infuriated” sea. From then on, she felt increasingly in tune with the waters. “In the beginning,” she explains, “I was able to separate my emotions from the emotions of the sea. Today, it’s as if my feelings and the emotion in the photos blend together completely.”

We were terrible at documenting our trip to South America. Apologies. 

But here is my recap video. It features Rio, São Paulo and Buenos Aires. The two weeks down there were incredible. Brazil is a magical place filled with the most amazingly welcoming, friendly people i’ve ever met. Our Airbnb finds were outstanding. The people we stayed with were awesome (and featured a bit in the video. Otavio is the one grilling meats and teaching us how to make caipirinhas.) 

Getting to witness Brazil watching Brazil play World Cup games in Brazil was something I’ll never ever forget. I’ve never seen a country get SO patriotically dolled up and have it be SO adorable. All the warnings and paranoia about getting mugged were unfounded. We had no problems.

Ipanema is and probably will always be the most beautiful place i’ve ever been to. It is every bit as incredible as you think it will be. 

Argentina has a very strong European vibe. It was beautiful. We ate and shopped like reina’s thanks to the exchange rate that worked in our favor (for once!). The men were beautiful and the food (read: steak) and wine were delicious. 

Anyway, ENJOY! :)
