Review • Google Nest Hub review: Still the smart display to beat See It $99 Mentioned Above Google Home Hub Read CNET’s Google Home Hub review to learn more. Verdict: Top marks, even if the audio quality doesn’t quite rival some screenless smart speakers. Likewise, over at Best Buy, it has an impressive 4.6-star review average from over 3,000 buyers.At $150, this might have seemed a little extravagant. But at $59? Awfully tempting. (Of course, I’m also tempted to see if it can drop any lower.)Read more: The first 9 things you should do with your Google Home HubOriginally published March 29.Update, July 29: Back in stock, but with a different promo code.

How To • Google Assistant, Android Q, Google Nest Hub Max: Google’s big plans for the rest of the year How low can it go? Hard to say, but the Google Home Hub keeps dropping a few bucks every few weeks. Google Well, here we are again. A while back I made the joke that if this trend continues, the Google Home Hub (which was recently renamed the Nest Hub) will soon be free. Because for months now, each week seems to bring another $1-2 discount.Like this week: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Altatac via Rakuten has the Google Home Hub for $58.65 when you apply promo code SAVE15 at checkout. You also need to be signed into your Rakuten account (assuming you have one; if not, you’ll have to sign up for one).See it at RakutenThe Home Hub originally sold for $149, but Google recently lowered it to $129. Even before that, it started showing up from resellers for around $80, and every couple weeks it seems to drop another a buck or two. I keep thinking it can’t possibly go any lower, but, well, happy Monday! The Home Hub takes the Google Home smart speaker and adds a 7-inch touchscreen. That opens the door to things like guided recipes, song lyrics, appointment calendars and so on — all the same stuff your phone or tablet can do, but on something that’s a permanent fixture in, say, your kitchen.There’s no camera, so you can’t use it for video calling the way you can an Amazon Echo Show or Facebook Portal. (Some people might find that preferable, though, in light of recent privacy concerns.) Google does offer a smart assistant with a camera, the new Nest Hub Max, but it’s $230.And don’t forget the new Echo Show 5, which seems very Google Home Hub-like and sells for $90 — but has just a 5-inch screen.

While shutterbugs were waiting outside to click her, the actress for some unknown reasons, was seen hiding her face.Wearing a black transparent top with trousers, Parineeti was seen in a hurry to enter her car, and escape the lens as soon as possible. A video has come out that shows her first rushing back into the salon as soon as she spotted paparazzi waiting outside.She then comes out, but quickly enters her car, and is seen desperately trying to hide her face with her hair and hands. The video is out on Instagram, and people are wondering what made her hide her face so desperately.While some suggested that the actress wanted to avoid being clicked as she was without make-up, some others thought there is something fishy about it. Nonetheless, it is only Parineeti who knows the reason behind her act.On the work front, she was recently seen in Kesari alongside Akshay Kumar. Although she had a small role in the film, the actress was glad to be a part of such a big project.

LONDON, ENGLAND – JULY 14: Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex attend day twelve of the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships at All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club on July 14, 2018 in London, England.Photo by Clive Mason/Getty ImagesKate Middleton and the Queen are quite close. Kate Middleton joined the Royal Family and became the Duchess of Cambridge about ten years ago, so she has quite the advantage over Meghan Markle when it comes to the Queen’s favour it seems. But it looks like the monarch’s relationship with the Duchess of Cambridge is quite different from her relationship with the Duchess of Sussex.Reportedly Kate Middleton and the Queen, were spotted together at the Chelsea Flower Show last week when the monarch visited the Duchess of Cambridge’s garden at the event. A body language expert has analysed how Her Majesty and Kate interact, and compared their relationship with the monarch and Meghan Markle. Apparently, Royal fans were shocked when Kate Middleton kissed the Queen, with some claiming the move was a breach of royal protocol.A body language expert has analysed Kate and the Queen, providing Express.co.uk with exclusive insight into their relationship. Body language expert Judi James revealed how the Queen has begun to treat the Duchess of Cambridge “as a friend.”Judi pointed out some noticeable similarities between Kate and the Queen, and claimed Kate is one of the few people who entertains the Queen, and not vice versa. Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle bond is only getting stronger.Getty ImagesThe expert went on to say that Kate has always been a slow but steady integrator into the royal firm and her slightly traditional approach, making very few if any ripples in continuity, does seem to have resonated with the Queen, who increasingly appears to treat her as a friend as well as a daughter-in-law.On the other hand, Meghan Markle in not known shirking traditions and breaking protocols. Though Meghan is new to the Royal Family, her inability to not cause ripples may rub the Queen the wrong way. On the other hand, Meghan and the Queen’s relationship is “much newer and probably still in the ‘forming’ stage,” Judi said. The expert claimed that the Queen treats Meghan Markle differently to Kate, as she only recently became a member of the Royal Family.But Meghan still has a few years to earn the Queen’s favour as long as she plays by the monarch’s rules.

Anupama Parameswaran and Samantha AkkineniCollage of photos taken from Twitter and FacebookAnupama Parameswaran has revealed that she was the first choice for Ram Charan’s Rangasthalam and Samantha Akkineni accepted the role after she rejected it.Anupama Parameswaran will be next seen alongside Bellamkonda Sreenivas in Ramesh Varma-directed film Rakshasudu, which is scheduled for worldwide release on August 2. The actress, who is currently busy promoting the movie, opened up on rejecting Rangasthalam in a recent interaction with the media.Talking to media, Anupama Parameswaran reportedly revealed that director Sukumar had initially approached her with the offer to play the female lead in Rangasthalam. But she rejected the film as she could not adjust her dates for the project. The actress says she regrets missing the opportunity to work with mega power star Ram Charan in the film.After Anupama rejected it, Sukumar reportedly approached Samantha Akkineni, who grabbed the offer and rest is history. Rangasthalam not only became a blockbuster success at the worldwide box office but also emerged as the highest-grossing Telugu film of 2018.Anupama Parameswaran rose to fame with her debut Malayalam movie Premam in 2015 and forayed into Tollywood with its remake in 2016. Later, she has also entered Tamil and Kannada film industries. She has starred in over 10 movies in the last five years and has some hit films like A Aa, Premam and Sathamanam Bhavati. RakshasuduTwitterThe actress has worked with popular actors like Nani, Sharwanand, Ram and Sai Dharam Tej in Telugu films, but she never had the chance to romance a top star like Ram Charan. She might have had hit films in her kitty, but she does not have high grossers like Rangasthalam. By rejecting Sukumar’s film, she lost both the opportunities which could have changed the prospects of her career.Anupama Parameswaran will be seen romancing Bellamkonda Sreenivas in her upcoming movie Rakshasudu, which is touted to be an action thriller. It is the official remake of 2018 Tamil film Ratsasan. Both the hero and heroine have pinned a lot of hopes on the movie.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating around 300 people admitted into the United States as refugees for suspected terror-linked activities, a senior US official said Monday.“We are talking about 300 individuals who were admitted to the United States as refugees who are currently being investigated by the FBI for potential terrorism-related activity,” the official of the Department of Homeland Security said.The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, gave the figure as part of a justification for a 120-day halt on refugee admissions to ensure they are properly vetted.He did not give any details on where the refugees came from or how many might have come from the six countries subject to a new travel ban signed Monday by President Donald Trump.“The salient fact here is that there are 300 individuals admitted and welcomed to the United States in the refugee admissions program who either infiltrated with hostile intent or who radicalised after admission to the United States,” he said.
