Apple Watch Series 6 review: minute improvements

Weirdly, the fact that the Apple Watch Series 6 is the very best smartwatch by a huge margin feels anticlimactic. That’s probably because the same was true of the Series 5, the Series 4, and even the Series 3. At this point, the company would have to massively screw something up with the Apple Watch for it to be knocked out of the lead spot.

Apple didn’t screw anything up. But that’s not the same thing as significantly moving forward, either. The Series 6’s updates comprise a bunch of very minor updates that will be unnecessary to the vast majority of people who will buy it. The headline feature, blood oxygen monitoring, also fits in that category.

Starting at $399, it’s not the best deal you can find for your wrist, but it justifies its cost by offering a ton of value — just not enough value compared to previous

News flash: We’re in the middle of a pandemic. That means there are no benches and chairs to sit on in your local Barnes & Noble. Baseball patrons are made of cardboard. And the theaters are closed. This last one stings the most, but the best Atlanta theaters are adapting to fill the void left by the absence of live theater. We’ve got drive-in cabarets. We’ve got outdoor opera. And we’ve got a variety of online stream-from-home offerings, including the new Our Stage Onscreen Digital Series at Aurora Theatre, a series that brings performing arts to homebound season supporters and new audiences while providing a safe workspace for Atlanta theatre artists.

Extension’s Cooking Basics series helps people navigate through the kitchen | Features

As restaurants closed in the beginning of the pandemic, many Americans learned just how much they had come to rely on them.

People had to start finding their way around the kitchen. That was a big task in a country where, according to the United States Department of Agriculture, people on average spend 54% of their food bills in restaurants.

Employees at the Manhattan-based K-State Research and Extension service thought they could help.

“At the beginning of the pandemic, Extension decided to do just a quick needs assessment with our clients,” said Lisa Martin, extension agent for the expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program.

The survey asked people what issues were the most important to them at the time — cooking and getting meals on the table hit high on the list.

“We had curriculum that we used with teaching, but we really didn’t have anything in fact sheets, and

Lorraine Bracco Will Renovate a Home in Sicily for New HGTV Series

Photo by Theo Wargo/Getty Images

Lorraine Bracco is getting into the home-renovation business — and the home-renovation television business — on HGTV’s “My Big Italian Adventure.”

In the upcoming series, the “Goodfellas” and “Sopranos” actress will remodel a 200-year-old, 1,075-square-foot home that she purchased in Sicily for exactly one euro. Her reno budget will be many, many, many multiples of that.

Bracco will be joined in the tiny hilltop town of Sambuca di Sicilia by an architect, a contractor (Piero) and a translator (Cynthia).

The mayor of Sambuca famously created the one-euro program to help sell the town’s vacant homes quickly and inexpensively. The goal was to encourage families to return to the rural oasis, but the catch is that renovation on the homes must be completed within three years of purchase.

Bracco’s centuries-old home
