Watch F R I E N D S 124
SharePlay -- introduced in iOS 15 and MacOS Monterey -- is a FaceTime feature that lets iPhone, iPad and Mac users share screens for watch parties with up to 33 people. The feature works with streaming services Apple TV, Showtime, Paramount Plus, NBA, TikTok and Twitch, and there are plans for the feature to work with Disney Plus, ESPN, Hulu and HBO Max soon. However, it doesn't work with Netflix or YouTube. For it to work, everyone in the watch party needs to have iOS 15.1 or later installed, and they need a subscription to the streaming service being watched.

Anyone in the watch party can hit pause, play, fast-forward or rewind, according to Apple. If people talk during the show, SharePlay will lower the volume of the video until people quiet down. There's also a group chat icon in the bottom left corner of the screen people can tap so they can message each other without disturbing the video.
Teleparty, formerly known as Netflix Party, is a Google Chrome extension that lets you host a watch party for up to 1,000 people, if you know that many. It works for Netflix, Disney Plus, Hulu, HBO and other streaming services. Note that each viewer needs to have a subscription to the streaming service being watched in order to join the watch party, and they also need the Teleparty extension installed.
Amazon's Prime Video Watch Party is similar to Hulu Watch Party in that it's built into Amazon Prime Video, and only works on movies and shows on the service. However, Prime Video Watch Party allows up to 100 Amazon Prime members to simultaneously watch a video. Prime Video Watch Party is accessible on Android mobile devices and tablets, Fire tablets, Fire TV devices and Google Chrome. It can't be accessed on iPhones, iPads, smart TVs, game consoles or in Internet Explorer or Safari.
Disney Plus has a built-in watch party feature called GroupWatch. The feature only works for Disney Plus content, and everyone in the watch party needs to be a Disney Plus subscriber. For movies that launch under Premier Access like Black Widow and Jungle Cruise, everyone in the party needs to unlock the video on their own or you can wait for the standard release of those movies. Only seven people can watch simultaneously, and kid accounts can't use GroupWatch, according to Disney. You can use GroupWatch on a desktop or Mac, or through the Disney Plus app on iOS and Android devices.
If everyone in your friend group has a different streaming service, or if you have a DVD or Blu-ray player attached to your computer, you can still have a watch party. Just use Zoom, Google Meet or any other free video chat service. The major drawback is many free video chat services have a screen-sharing time limit, so this option might be best suited for half-hour episodes of TV.

50 Ways To Break is a series where he smashes a certain electronic product in 50 different ways by making up short skits. Typically, the first two ways are dropping it on the floor and dropping it in the water, along with the last two ways of typically smashing it with a hammer fifty times and re-watching or recapping the video.
Whitehouse hall is a suite-style residence hall that has plenty of room to connect and focus on academics. There are several large lounges throughout Whitehouse that make building a community and hanging out with friends easy and accessible. While the smaller lounges scattered throughout the building offer opportunity to really hone in on your academic studies. Students often take to our front living room on the first floor to play board games and watch movies with their friends. We also have a newly renovated lounge on the ground floor that is right next to the community kitchen and laundry room which allows students the opportunity to gather over home-cooked food or just study and hang out while waiting on their laundry to finish.
And so we use icebreakers two or three times during your party to help mix the room up. Because as I watch an event, if I show up to a party, I'm looking to see how much the room is moving and shifting. I like to see moving and shifting, because for me, that means there's new conversations happening. And I like that I host events so that people can have as many new conversations as possible. And what I know is that the good ones they'll follow up on, they'll get the contact info, they'll schedule a lunch or a Hangout or something like that. They'll go get drinks, but I want to host events where my friends all the attendees can meet as many new people as possible. And so we do these icebreakers. Where I go around, I ask people to say their name, say what they do for work. And then an easy little question to ask as an icebreaker. My favorite one that's a green level icebreaker for easy is, you know, what's one of your favorite things to eat for breakfast? That's a good question. That'll work 100% of the time, when the room is cold when there's no rapport, and it's not really about what do you like for breakfast? It's about getting everybody to sort of speak and signal and make the room start to open for new conversations to give people that conversational crutch to go meet somebody.
It's messy, there's clean up, there's just a lot of reasons why I don't like dinner, and dinner is like you said dinner is sitting down and sitting down as the kryptonite to good energy to meeting new people. You get stuck sitting next year. Now, I'm not saying that dinners are bad. You can do dinners. Maybe you're listening to this. And you're like I host some dinner parties. I commend you. If you host some good dinner parties. I would encourage you though, to try cocktail parties to see that in the time it takes to watch a movie on Netflix, you can build relationships with 15 to 20 people. It's kind of like an amazing secret weapon.
Troy: Of course not. My eyes might have teared up a little bit. And we talked, too, about kind of putting aside the doctor piece and just being there and just being a dad, and that's what I tried to do. I mean, I was tempted to go into doctor mode there and overthink everything and watch everything that's happening and get nervous, but I was like, "Hey, I'm just here. I'm just a dad." And it was nice to do that.
Douglas: Yes. Yeah, that's true. That's extremely interesting. And of course I was watching this on the news as well and thinking very much the same thing. But I think that there probably is a difference in the person who sits at home and reads this information on the internet and then decides whether or not it's true and the individuals who are prepared to actually go and storm a building or to go out and actively cause trouble based on these conspiracy beliefs. So there's probably a lot going on there, but in terms of the way we measure belief in conspiracy theories, we just don't, with these sorts of gender differences that might seem obvious, don't seem to play out really in the research that we do on the everyday population, I suppose.
In this public rhetoric and practical communication course, we will use media narratives from stand-up to documentary film and television episodes to explore how we tell our personal, professional, and political stories. The narratives we'll engage with, from Nanette to Gloria Andalúa's writings and the 1619 Project, will situate personal stories, research, and expertise within broader histories and geopolitics, mobilizing rhetorical devices from humor and emotion to lighting and costuming. The texts we watch will serve as (fun, hopefully) springboards to discuss different topics and rhetorical strategies and how to play with those same strategies in our own self-presentation.
The course will be part discussion and part writing workshop, driving towards helping you think through your future plans from graduation to life after college, from graduate school to getting a job you want/like. Part of this will entail using reflective strategies for reading, watching, and listening rhetorically, i.e. being mindful of contexts, messages, and audiences. You will also practice several modes of rhetorical speaking and writing, making decisions about content and structure to inform, persuade, or tell a story, and ultimately support you as you hone your voice and style. Finally you will develop strategic plans, turn your goals into actions, and discuss and develop a work-life balance. Exercises and assignments are loosely structured so as to allow you to compose texts that will support your present and/or future-life hopes and goals, while highlighting different stages of the writing process, from pre-writing and drafting to peer review and collaborative revision. 041b061a72
