Comments The folding Tribit XFree Tune headphones look and sound luxurious, but the price tag is all cheapskate. Sarah Tew/CNET Just last year, CNET audio guru David Carnoy was delighted to discover that the $50 Tribit XFree Tune over-the-ear wireless headphones offered “terrific sound for the money.”Right now, today, I’m delighted to tell you that Cheapskate readers can score the Tribit XFree Tune over-the-ear wireless headphones for $32.49. That’s after clicking the on-page 5% off coupon and then applying promo code DLTXFREE at checkout.See at AmazonCarnoy’s XFree Tune review is the best place to start if you want the full scoop on these, as I haven’t had the chance to try them myself.I can tell you that the carrying case is included at this price; it’s not $5 extra as mentioned in the review. And speaking of reviews, the headphones scored a genuinely impressive 4.6-star average rating from over 700 buyers.Other important things to know: Tribit promises a whopping 40 hours of playtime on a charge (though it takes a full 4 hours to recharge), and you can also bypass Bluetooth in favor of a wired connection (cord included), which requires no power at all.I think these would make a great gift for a mom, dad or grad.Read more: The best headphones for 2019 Bonus deal: One of my favorite recent sci-fi books is on sale for $2Not to be confused with the sci-fi TV series of the same name, Dark Matter by Blake Crouch is a twisty, trippy sci-fi novel that was among my favorite reads of the past few years.The Kindle edition normally sells for $10, but for a limited time, you can grab Dark Matter for just $2.

Dont pull down others because of your own selfish interests Taapsee Pannu

first_imgTaapsee PannuTwitterTaapsee Pannu was seen in an engaging discussion with Vidya Balan on her radio show called Dhun Badalke Toh Dekho with Vidya Balan on Big FM where the two divas talked about the idea of Indian women breaking the glass ceiling.When she asked if there is really a glass ceiling, Taapsee replied, “Yes, it’s very much there. Fingers have been raised on those who have broken the glass ceiling. They get to hear it often that she must have done something or used some strategy. There are cracks which have started appearing and it will break certainly. Women don’t have to back out. Most importantly, we must support each other. Most of the times what I end up seeing is that a lot of women start questioning each other’s potential instead of helping each other out, because we are in the same boat in a lot of ways. I am not saying just go out of the way and support them. Don’t pull down others because of your own selfish interests. We are on the same side and fighting the same battle. So we must all try to join hands together.”Adding further to the conversation, Vidya shared a valuable piece of advice with the women that instead of getting de-motivated by statements, like women are emotional and family oriented, they should see the situation in a positive light and use that emotional and nurturing attitude for their own development.last_img read more

first_imgListen 00:00 /01:46 Share – / 11With less than five seconds left in the game, North Carolina erased the last of what had been a 10-point deficit by hitting a three-pointer that tied the game at 74.Many fans were probably ready for overtime. But Villanova guard Ryan Arcidiacono quickly dribbled up the court before handing off the ball to forward Kris Jenkins, who made a three as the buzzer sounded.Villanova coach Jay Wright called it one of the greatest college basketball games ever.“That was just great college basketball, two great teams,” he said. “In a national championship game to hit a shot at the buzzer, I mean, I haven’t seen many better than that.”Arcidiacono won the Most Outstanding Player award for his performance during the NCAA tournament.“I wanted to be aggressive,” he said about the last few seconds of the game. “If I could get a shot, I was going to shoot it, but I heard someone screaming in the back of my ear, in the back of my head, and it was Kris. And I just gave it to him and let it go with confidence, he let it go with confidence.”This is the second national title for Villanova after 1985.On the losing side, North Carolina coach Roy Williams got emotional after the game.“The difference in winning and losing in college basketball is so small,” he said. “The difference in your feelings is so large.”74,430 fans attended the game at NRG Stadium, the second-highest attendance for an NCAA championship game in history.
