The Tesla Model X is unrivaled in the electric-vehicle market in terms of its ability to deliver performance, range, and cargo capacity.

I first drove the Tesla Model X in 2015 shortly before it was unveiled to the public.

As a large premium electric crossover SUV, it inhabits a segment with only a handful of rivals like the Audi e-tron and the Jaguar I-Pace.

In addition, the 120-mile drive would finally give me the opportunity to try out Tesla's vaunted Supercharger network.

That means I usually never burn off enough range to require a recharge.

Recently, Adobe held its annual MAX conference and issued a few noteworthy statements.

Particularly, the software giant said it will introduce another desktop-level image and graphics application to the iPad.

The product is scheduled to be released in 2020.

Last year Adobe announced a similar program to provide Photoshop for the iPad, which was launched on the App Store on Monday.

It would be fair to say San Diego Comic-Con changed Phil Yeh's life.

He wasn't much of a comic book fan, but attending the convention and meeting sci-fi author Ray Bradbury and comics legend Jack Kirby set him on a track he'd follow the rest of his life: starting a publishing company, spearheading the early days of graphic novels, starting literacy nonprofit Cartoonists Across America & The World and more.

At his booth on the expo floor, I spoke with Yeh about setting up shop in a hotel basement, paying $2 for a ticket and getting career advice from Bradbury and Kirby.

So I was a street kid, mostly into playing poker and other things, but I had a friend who was a comic book fan, and in between when I would play cards, I'd say, "Hey, give me a comic book to read," and he would always hand me Jack Kirby, Fantastic Four, something like that.

In 1970, there was a little [classified] ad for San Diego Comic-Con, and my friend, who was the guy giving me the comics, said, "Phil, you should go to this," because he knew I drew.

I was 15, so I had to get my father to drive me to San Diego, and we took my little sister.

After a year of keeping away from each other, social distancing measures are relaxing, meaning dating and sex are very much back on the cards.

But for two thirds of people, the thought of getting intimate with someone new is causing all kinds of anxiety.

A survey by dating website Badoo found 63% of single people feel anxious at the thought of getting physically intimate after a year in and out of lockdown.

Two in five (43%) respondents said they feel out of practice and just aren’t used to physical touch, while 41% say their intimacy anxiety stems from not knowing enough about their date’s lifestyle and worrying about the risk of Covid-19.

Sex therapist Charlene Douglas says it’s actually pretty normal for people to feel this way given all that’s happened this past year. “If you think about normal non-romantic relationships, it’s been quite difficult for us to get back out there again and engage with people just on that level, in terms of having conversations and going to social events,” she tells HuffPost UK. 

“So you can imagine how much more difficult it would be to be physically naked with somebody – not just in terms of all that usually goes along with that in terms of the anxiety, but when you add Covid into the mix as well.”

Do you have intimacy anxiety?

Knowing the signs of intimacy anxiety

A person with intimacy anxiety might feel the need to drink more than their usual level when meeting up with a new romantic interest, says Douglas, or they might use distraction techniques such as talking a lot throughout the date so the conversation doesn’t ultimately lead towards physical closeness and sex.

Another sign is avoidance, in other words completely avoiding meeting new people or responding to messages from prospective partners.

And then there are the physical manifestations of anxiety to watch out for like a racing heart or sweaty palms. Douglas notes it’s about noticing the difference between those casual pre-date butterflies in your stomach and that feeling of real dread.

So how can you start to tackle this kind of anxiety?

Look inwards

First up, psychosexual and relationship therapist Aoife Drury urges people to really consider whether they’re ready to get back out there or not. Ask yourself: are you doing it because you want to, or are you doing it because of societal pressure or pressure from others? If you’re not ready just yet, that’s totally fine.

A bit of self-awareness can also help you figure out exactly what it is that’s making you feel so anxious about dating. “Ask yourself what you need to feel comfortable,” says Drury. “If there is anxiety, create some space to look at why that may be.” Is it because you’re not used to being touched and you’re out of practice, are you worried about catching the virus, or do you not really know what you’re looking for?

“Self-awareness is a powerful tool, but equally an important aspect of dating and relationships,” she says. “Take time to discover what you are looking for in a sexual partner, and what you may need to feel more comfortable. Even try writing it down – it may help you be able to communicate these fears if you need to.”

Touch yourself

Self-touch might just help you overcome the lack of physical intimacy from the past year, as if you’ve lacked touch since before Covid-19, “it inevitably could be triggering anxiety,” says Drury. “This step forward may not be an easy journey to begin with, so a lovely way to start is with yourself. There are a few things that you could do to help ease back into physical touch that may help you feel more at ease.”

Give yourself hand and foot massages, or spend more time in the bath or shower, recognising the fall and feel of the water on your skin. It might also be helpful to invest in a weighted blanket, a human-sized pillow, or heated eye masks, Drury suggests. And don’t forget to carve out some time for sensual touch too. “Draw on some mindful masturbation or a sex toy to get you reacquainted and in tune with your body and pleasure,” she says.

Slow things down

You’re ready to date again and you’ve found someone you like – now you need to take things at snail pace. Badoo’s survey found that of those who feel anxious about getting back out there, two thirds (62%) want to spend more time getting to know someone before being physically intimate.

Charlene Douglas is a firm believer in taking the pressure off yourself to have sex by focusing on taking things slowly and building emotional intimacy first. “To expect our bodies and our minds to just connect with someone after not being out for a year may be quite unrealistic,” she says. “We may need some time to adjust to that.”

She recommends building emotional intimacy first, before you head down the physically intimate route. This could mean having a conversation on the phone first until you feel comfortable meeting up, and maybe doing some video calls so you can really get a sense of somebody before you meet with them.

Talk about your worries

Before you do physically meet with your new love interest, it might be useful to have a frank conversation about your concerns. It’s totally ok to ask how they’ve been keeping themselves safe from Covid-19. You might also both agree to take a lateral flow test before going on your date for peace of mind. 

“What’s really important for people to think about is: can you have the conversation with your new partner about some of these anxieties?” says Douglas, “because I think what we find is with a lot of things we’re anxious about, when we can talk about it, it does release some of that anxiety. So communication is really key.”

Remember, it’s very likely your date feels the same. “Our experiences may have been different and the way we feel might be different, but we’ve all been through this [pandemic] so it might feel a bit strange for the other person to meet with us,” she continues. “If you can have a conversation openly about these worries, I think that really helps. And then it takes away the pressure and you can have a bit of fun together and see where it goes from there.”

Plan a fun date

Now that you’ve communicated how you’re feeling, plan your date and try to ensure it’s activity-filled if you’re not quite ready for sexy time.

“If you can plan a date where you’re going bowling or ice skating, where you just have fun together and a laugh, it takes away the pressure of that dinner date or coffee date where you’re sitting opposite each other and you’re having to think of conversations and the sexual tension’s building and then the anxiety builds as well,” says Douglas.

“If you can build some emotional intimacy activities in there, that could hopefully help when it comes to going down that route of the physical intimacy.”

And if you do have sex... 

Enjoy it! “Although sex is daunting and can feel very anxiety provoking when it’s been off the table for a while, it can be incredibly beneficial for our mental health,” says Drury. “With dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin flying around it can help give your mood a boost.

“Try to frame it as an opportunity to meet somebody new, and to learn about yourself. Enjoy the added benefits that it can bring to both physical and mental wellbeing.”

A new partnership between future fuel firms, PowerTap Hydrogen Fuelling and the Andretti Group, could be bringing 100 new hydrogen filling pumps to gas stations across the US. The deal, announced earlier today, will begin by fitting hydrogen pumps to 39 Andretti-owned filling stations in California. So, that sucks if you don’t live in California and want to get a hydrogen car. Once these 39 locations are complete, other Andretti locations across the rest of the US will be retrofitted with the company’s hydrogen dispensing pumps. PowerTap Hydrogen has ambitions to install more than 500 hydrogen filling stations across the…

Early last year, the revival craze was in full swing among networks.

Just a year and a half later, however, a straight-up TV revival has started to lose its luster.

The Conners—which is what Roseanne morphed into after star Roseanne Barr was fired in May 2018—is still going strong, but Murphy Brown was canceled after just one season.

NBC is ending Will & Grace this season after declining ratings, and The X-Files, whose 2018 season stumbled after its huge 2016 return, also seems to be done for good.

Yet even as revivals stumble, nostalgia remains a strong draw for audiences, as proven during the past month by a pair of movies based on popular TV shows: El Camino, the Breaking Bad movie that debuted Friday on Netflix and in select theaters; and Downton Abbey, which has grossed $82.7 million at the U.S. box office since its release last month.

Coupled with the Deadwood movie that aired on HBO in May and helped wrap up the critically acclaimed series, which abruptly ended in 2006, these movies show a potential new path forward for studios and creators as audiences’ appetite for revivals has started to wane.

The authors of the study analyzed 22,484 porn sites and found that 93 percent of them leak data to third parties, including when accessed via a browser’s “incognito” mode.

“[E]veryone is at risk when such data is accessible without users’ consent, and thus can potentially be leveraged against them,” write the authors.

“These risks are heightened for vulnerable populations whose porn usage might be classified as non-normative or contrary to their public life.” This might include countries where homosexuality is illegal, for example, or instances when a public figure’s sexuality is not public knowledge.

But while it’s clear that people are being tracked when visiting porn sites, it’s less certain what happens to this data, and in what cases it can be linked to someone’s identity.

“We don’t allow Google Ads on websites with adult content and we prohibit personalized advertising and advertising profiles based on a user’s sexual interests or related activities online,” a Google spokeswoman told The New York Times, which was first to cover the findings of the study.

“Additionally, tags for our ad services are never allowed to transmit personally identifiable information.”

“The site offers several ways to delve into the collections: simple or advanced searches, entries by curatorial department, and themed albums,” says the press release. I humbly offer another way to delve in: hand-selected links to some paintings of animals that should tickle your whimsy.

These are the ads, and by extension the games, that game makers are putting major muscle behind.

Below are the top five most-seen gaming industry TV advertisers from July 16 through August 15.

Overall, there were 401.5 million TV ad impressions during the period measured, with eight brands spending an estimated $5.6 million on 19 spots that aired over 1,600 times.

Firefox Preview, as the name suggests, is a work-in-progress, but it already presents some appealing prospects.

Mozilla claims the browser is up to two times as fast as its previous Android browsers.

So far, it seems to be faster than the existing Firefox for Android, and about on par with Chrome for Android, or slightly slower.

Its landing page, or general home area, is where you’ll find your search bar, open tabs, incognito mode toggle, and some other options.

The incognito toggle and search box areas are easily accessible at the top of this area, but if you’re the kind of person who has 99 tabs open, the Collections are at the bottom is going to get buried.

However, this toolbar is set apart from its competitors with one key significant difference: it’s placed at the bottom of the screen rather than at the top.
