DMV Begins Issuing ‘Real ID’ Licenses, ID Cards

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享As of January 2, Alaskans will be issued a new driver’s license or ID card. The state has officially begun issuing new identification that is compliant with the federal Real ID Act by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The act does not take away the state’s authority to issue licenses or ID cards, but does require higher standards to protect against tampering and fraud. The REAL ID Act of 2005 changed federal laws to protect against terrorism, increase security for driver’s licenses and ID cards and improve border infrastructure. Beginning October 1, 2020, the Department of Homeland Security requires any driver license (DL) or identification (ID) card be REAL ID compliant if you wish to use it as identification to board a domestic flight or enter military bases and most federal facilities. The new IDs have a green-and-blue holographic silhouette of Denali with fireweed on the left side and a moose on the right side. A transparent star in a black roundel signifies that the license meets federal standards.center_img A Real ID costs $40 versus a traditional driver’s license that costs $20. According to the DMV’s checklist you’ll need to bring additional documentation, a passport, naturalization certificate or birth certificate is needed to confirm your identity. You’ll also need to bring a Social Security card (or another document that has your Social Security number, such as a pay stub) and two pieces of mail that include your current address. The Legislature approved allowing the state to issue licenses compliant with the federal REAL ID law in 2017. State law previously barred agencies from spending money to help implement the law, which some legislators saw as overreaching.last_img read more

Eddie Hearn rejected the chance to sign Tyson Fury because Gypsy King was so overweight during talks in Monaco

first_img People Slammed By Massive Waves 4 EDDIE HEARN rejected the chance to sign Tyson Fury in 2017 because he was so overweight.The Matchroom promoter held talks with the Gyspsy King in Monaco and regrets his decision with hindsight.Eddie Hearn rejected the chance to sign Tyson Fury and thought the Gypsy King would never get back in shape after he ballooned to 27st 7lbsFury ballooned to a whopping 27st 7lbs in November 2017 and that was when he ran into Hearn.He managed to shed a staggering 8st for his June 2018 comeback fight with Sefer Seferi and a further 1st 4lbs for his controversial draw against Deontay Wilder in December that year.Asked which fighter he could have signed but didn’t, Hearn revealed the Gypsy King was the one that got away.He told ‘Doing the Rounds’: “I mean you could say Tyson Fury.“I had a chance to sign him. I was in Monaco, I think I could have signed him.“I didn’t want to give him the fights that he wanted to take at the time, because I thought it was just too much money and the fights weren’t good enough – and I probably should have done it, to be honest with you. “I looked at him and I thought, ‘You ain’t ever going to come back anyway, look at the size of you,’ but he surprised everybody and how wrong I was.“Fury is definitely up there, and there’s a few others. A few American guys that I probably had the chance to sign as well.”Hearn is under pressure to match up Fury with his current big hitter Anthony Joshua, but was also asked who else he would like to have on his books in an ideal world.He added: “If I could sign three fighters right now in the world – I would sign Tyson Fury, I would sign Ryan Garcia, and I would sign Gervonta Davis.“There’s three people involved with Tyson Fury – MTK, Top Rank and Frank Warren.“They’ve kind of agreed among themselves that all three of those must be there and present when we have a proper chat.“So at some point we will have to talk, and I have no problem on the phone, face-to-face.“I’m not going to let a fight like that slip away, because we don’t talk.”Mike Tyson reveals he is in boxing training ahead of shock return to the ring for four-round charity fight Travel Diary // Vietnam 2017 Rebekah Vardy scores an impressive penalty in six-inch heels Source: Boxing – What’s This “Trick” Called?

‘The Voice’ recap: Blake Shelton nabs three artists, but John Legend lands the biggest one of the night

first_imgCopyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved. Trae Patton/NBC(NEW YORK) — The Voice blind auditions continued on Tuesday night with Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Gwen Stefani continuing to build their teams.Blake grabbed the most artists of the night, picking up three for his team.  John wound up with two, including the biggest artist of the night.  Gwen and Kelly each had one.But first, Monday’s show ended with a cliffhanger, as Gwen, John and Blake all fought for indie-alternative rocker Cali Wilson, who performed Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams.” Legend praised Cali’s “super-gorgeous tone” and the control she had over her voice. Gwen called Cali’s rendition of the song “moving,” adding she “got lost” in the performance.  However, it was Blake’s knowledge of the 28-year-old singer’s hometown of Salem, Iowa, and the fact that she once spotted Blake at the town’s only gas station, that convinced her to join his team.Here are some of the other highlights from Tuesday’s show:Jordan Chase, 19, tackled Drake White’s “Makin’ Me Look Good Again,” touching off a battle between Blake and Gwen for the raspy-voiced singer.  The Pensacola, Florida native, who moved to New Orleans with his family, is a Hurricane Katrina survivor who began to withdraw as an effect of the storm.  Music helped him find his voice. Blake noted that, unlike most singers with the grit Chase has in his voice, do not have his range.  “I’m probably gonna pay for this later,” added Blake, “[but] that’s how much I love you.”  Gwen was impressed with how “honest” Chase’s voice sounded, but things got a little weird when Gwen said she could imagine what it would be like to be a 19-year-old boy.  “All I can tell you Gwen, is I’ve been a 19-year-old boy, and I must say, those are definitely not the best times of a young man’s life,” joked Legend.  Despite Kelly’s pleas for Jordan to pick Gwen, the young singer chose Blake.Dane and Stephanie are a pair of 21-year-old twins from New Jersey with an unusual back story: Dane’s name used to be Dana, before transitioning to a male.  The idea of auditioning based solely on how they sounded is what drew the pair to The Voice, so it was especially gratifying when John and Blake turned around for them as they performed The Lumineers’ “Angela.”  In fact, Dane’s history never even came up during the course of their conversations with the coaches. Instead, Legend touted his experience leading choirs and his excitement at landing a duo for his team. Blake Blake said that while he’d never directed a choir, he has won The Voice six times, once taking a duo into the finals.  Dane and Stephanie chose Legend as their coach.James Violet is a Utah native who tried his hand at making it as a musician in Los Angeles before turning tail and heading back to Utah.  He was ready to give it another go by auditioning for The Voice.  His rendition of Harry Styles’ “Sweet Creature” inspired Kelly, Gwen and Blake to turn their chairs, which led to a fierce battle between the two female coaches. Gwen was victorious.Preston C. Howell, a 14-year-old crooner from Miami, Florida closed the show, drawing the only four-chair turn of the night with his cover of, “Dream a Little Dream of Me,” a big hit for the Mamas and the Papas with Cass Elliott on lead vocals in 1968.  Once again, Gwen pulled out all the stops against John, the clear front-runner, to score Preston for her team.  Ultimately, Howell went with the obvious choice, joining Team Legend.The Voice returns Monday night at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.last_img read more

Lijit Closes $7.1 Million Series C Round – Readies Advertising Network

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Lijit, which provides search services to bloggers and blog networks, announced today that it has closed a $7.1 Million series C round led by Foundry Group. Lijit had raised a small Series A round in January of 2007 and a larger $3.3 million Series B in July 2007. With this new round, Lijit is planning to use this new influx of money to finance the launch of its search-powered ad network. Lijit provides bloggers with an enhanced search engine that not only looks at the content on the blog itself, but also takes a blogger’s social graph into account and allows you to bring together all your activities on other sites as well and make them searchable. Besides search, Lijit also provides bloggers with a comprehensive statistics package (see an example here). Lijit claims that using their search widget can increase pageviews by 5% or more.Currently, Lijit displays Google AdSense ads in its search results, but its advertising network would allow publishers to sell their own search ad inventory. As many bloggers and publishers are looking for ways to monetize their blogs through services other than AdSense, chances are that there are quite a few people who would like to at least give Lijit’s ad network a chance.Lijit company profile provided by TradeVibes frederic lardinois Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img Tags:#news#web 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts last_img read more

Gareth Southgate backs Raheem Sterling to improve England form

first_imgWinger Raheem Sterling has the determination to replicate his domestic form for the England national side, manager Gareth Southgate has said ahead of Thursday’s penultimate World Cup qualifier against Slovenia.Sterling has scored six goals in nine appearances for Manchester City this season but his international form has been mediocre in recent years, with the 22-year-old scoring the most recent of his two international goals in September 2015.The former Liverpool player was withdrawn at half time in England’s win over Malta last month and played seven minutes in the subsequent fixture against Slovakia.But Sterling, who has 34 caps for England, has been backed by Southgate to raise his game.”I think Raheem is a tough lad,” Southgate told reporters. “That’s one of the attributes I really like about him. He bounces back from disappointments and he goes again.”He is ready, I can see he is ready for the game and looking forward to it. He is in a good place with his club, he is working with a good coach there and we have huge belief in him as well.”We want the crowd to be excited with what they’re watching, and he’s a player who can do that: he can beat people; his goal scoring record is improving, and he works hard for the team, chasing back and tackling. He’s not just a winger.”Sterling could replace Tottenham Hotspur forward Dele Alli in the England starting side after the 21-year-old received a one-match suspension for a rude gesture during last month’s 2-1 win over Slovakia at Wembley.advertisementEngland, who lead Group F on 20 points, will seal a spot in the 2018 World Cup in Russia if they beat third-placed Slovenia at Wembley.Southgate’s side travel to Lithuania for their final qualifier on Sunday.last_img read more
