FULL CORN MOON SEPTEMBER 2 2020
The Full Moon for September 2020 is the Full Corn Moon! (This year, the Harvest Moon will be in October instead.) Learn how the Corn Moon got its name—plus, see Moon phase dates, Best Days by the Moon, folklore, and more!
WHEN TO SEE THE FULL MOON IN SEPTEMBER 2020
This year, start looking for September’s Full Corn Moon just after sunset on Tuesday, September 1, as it rises high and reaches its peak illumination at 1:23 A.M. Eastern Time on Wednesday, September 2.
NO HARVEST MOON THIS YEAR
The full Moon that happens nearest to the autumnal equinox (September 22 or 23) always takes on the name “Harvest Moon” instead of a traditional name—a rule that often places the Harvest Moon in the month of September. However, when September’s full Moon occurs early in the month, the full Moon of early October lands nearest to the autumnal equinox and therefore takes on the Harvest Moon title instead.
That’s the case in 2020, when October will experience two full Moons: one on October 1 (the Harvest Moon) and the other on the 31st (the Hunter’s Moon and a Blue Moon, too)! Learn more about the Harvest Moon. Read More

THE FORSYTE SAGA 2002 MINI-SERIES
My latest TV obsession during the Lockdown of 2020 is The Forsyte Saga on Amazon Prime/PBS. The acting is superb, the writing is really tight and true to the classic books by John Galsworthy. Not your usual dry British period series. Gripping drama along with humor and touching interactions with its characters. It's so much better in my opinion than Downton Abbey as the plotlines are much more realistic.
The Forsyte Saga is a 1967 BBC television adaptation of John Galsworthy's series of The Forsyte Saga novels, and its sequel trilogy A Modern Comedy. The series follows the fortunes of the upper-middle-class Forsyte family and stars Eric Porter as Soames, Kenneth More as Young Jolyon, and Nyree Dawn Porter as Irene. Original release: 7 January –; 1 July 1967
Then in 2002, a new version was filmed. The makers of the 2002 version of The Forsyte Saga felt that any new production would be compared with the 1967 version, which set the standards for period drama for the next 25 years.
The idea came initially from David Liddiment, ITV's director of channels, who seized on the Forsyte novels not only as a great achievement in English literature but also for their iconic status in British television.
Granada was thinking big from the outset of the project - this was clearly something that couldn't be dashed off as a two-parter. The initial plan was for two series, the first an adaptation of The Forsyte Saga and the second continuing with A Modern Comedy.
Sita Williams (fabulous!) attached herself to the project in late 1999 and by the start of 2000 was talking to writers and working on the adaptations. Casting began in 2001, first casting the leading roles of Soames, Irene, and Bosinney (Williams had seen Damian Lewis as Captain Winters in Band of Brothers). All of the casting choices are rock solid. The Full Cast is Here. Read the Episode Guide Here

WILLIAM SHATNER TEAMS UP WITH GUITAR LEGEND RICHIE BLACKMORE!
Los Angeles, CA – Hot on the heels of the superb joint effort from William Shatner and Canned Heat comes to a brand-new alliance that is sure to have music fans cheering. Former Rainbow and Deep Purple axeman and one of the most revered guitarists of the classic rock era, Ritchie Blackmore, joins Mr. Shatner for a deeply felt, heart-rending take on the blues classic “The Thrill Is Gone.”
The song, perhaps best known by the smash-hit version that B.B. King recorded in 1970, was actually written the same year that the young Mr. Shatner made his film debut in 1951. Since then it has been interpreted numerous times, but King’s version was the first to unite the soul-piercing lyrics with absolutely awe-inspiring guitar licks to create the definitive version of the song, and no doubt inspired the Shatner/Blackmore version.
As a special treat, Blackmore’s wife and longtime collaborator in Blackmore’s Night, Candice Night, contributes background vocals to add even more pathos to this inspired track.
Mr. Shatner had this to say about the song, “'The Thrill is Gone' is the title of the song, but the thrill is there with Ritchie Blackmore and his great guitar!”
Blackmore and Night return the praise saying, “We would like to express our gratitude for being able to appear on the recording with William Shatner. It is always an honor to work with him. He is a man of many legendary performances.”
Stream the single: https://orcd.co/william_shatner_ritchie_blackmore
“Thrill” is a highlight of Mr. Shatner’s fantastic new album, The Blues, which is now available for pre-order on CD, vinyl, and digital. The album will feature a constellation of blues, rock and country performers who work together with Mr. Shatner to bring the blues to life including Sonny Landreth, Brad Paisley, Pat Travers, Tyler Bryant and more! Look for the album to be released October 2 courtesy of Cleopatra Records.

BIGGEST DEAL OR NO DEAL WINS IN HISTORY
Deal or No Deal has been an increasingly popular game show since its launch in the 2000s, having been televised in 84 countries, with some of these versions still being broadcast today. As well as being an undeniably entertaining television show, with shocks and excitement to boot, Deal or No Deal also plays a hand in changing people’s lives with vast sums of money! The Deal or No Deal casino game has also granted a lot of wins and bonuses over the years, much to the delight of its players.
With this in mind, let’s take a look back at some of the greatest Deal or No Deal wins from around the world.
The UK series of the show ran for 11 years, with only nine people winning the top £250,000 prize over 3,003 episodes!
In January 2007, Laura Pearce became the first-ever winner of the grand prize. At that crucial moment she was left with two boxes, with one holding £3000 and the other boasting £250,000 – the banker then offers Pearce a £45,000 deal to end the game and go home with a bit of extra money in her pocket. However, she doesn’t take it, much to her own luck, and opens up her box to reveal that big sum that we all crave!
A few years later, in September 2011, Tegan Roberts followed suit and walked away with the top prize. Roberts had the strongest culmination of box values ever seen after three rounds, with a whopping total of £560,250.60 still floating around in the game. And then, that inevitable call finally comes, and the banker offer Roberts a juicy £77,000. But, of course, she rejects it and proudly receives the top prize when her chosen box is opened.
The Australian version of the much-loved classic game show first appeared back in July 2003, running over 11 seasons and just over 10 years. In all this time, believe it or not, we only saw four winners of the dazzling $200,000 jackpot, one of which came from a celebrity version of the show, giving their winnings over to one lucky viewer at home!
The first ever winner was a man named Dean Cartechini during the early stages of the game in 2004, who rejected the banker’s very generous offer of $102,500, in favour of carrying on with his boxes. Eventually he unveiled that tasty grand prize, and got the news that if he’d ended up choosing the other remaining box then he would have been walking away with a measly $5 instead! Talk about lucky!
America presented their own version of the show, debuting in December 2005, with comedian Howie Mandel guiding competitors through their luck-of-the-draw journey. Over 13 years of airing, the game only saw two big winners in 2008, mere months apart!
First came Jessica Robinson, who took home a staggering million-dollar cheque, after turning down the banker’s $561,000 offer. That’s right, in the American Deal or No Deal there is a mind-blowing $1,000,000 up for grabs! Next came a man called Tomorrow Rodriguez, who had his moment just nine episodes after Robinson. He went on to reject the banker’s offer of $677,000, whilst unknowingly running the risk of being given the $300 that sat in his other box. But, of course, it all worked out in Rodriguez’s favour, and he soon became a millionaire!

LEARNING ABOUT ELECTROSTATIC TECHNOLOGY
If you have a chance to speak with true audiophiles don’t forget to mention electrostatic headphones or speakers. You will be amazed with their excitement when this topic is being mentioned.
For a very long time, electrostatic headphones or speakers have been into the high-end technology category. The main reasons for this are minimal distortion, extraordinary clarity of sound and remarkable detail. The good this about this technology is that it has become easily available thanks to the Shure KSE1500 - Electrostatic Earphone System. It was a real challenge to pack the technology and components into these compact earphones.
Many online magazines have described them as extraordinary. And they really are, mainly because Shure succeeded to replace the standard in-ear drivers with the high-tech electrostatic transduction system.
Is there a difference between the electrostatic and standard headphones or speakers?
The main difference between electrostatic headphones and standard ones is in the way they generate sound. Electrostatic drivers for example, have two electrified plates with a thin membrane in between. The membrane is extremely lightweight and it is ceased inside an electrostatic field which allows it to move easily and produce the sound waves.
The principle of electrostatic technology requests a very amplified signal, but this technology has its advantages.
The standard membrane for example is a bit heavier than the one found in electrostatic drivers, plus there are several other mechanical mechanisms, while in the electrostatic driver the only thing that moves is the membrane itself. Its surface is supplied with a continual 200V DC bias charge and this is one of the reasons why electrostatic headphones have much less distortion than standard ones.
The membrane in the electrostatic driver is extremely lightweight. We can say that it almost has no mass at all. This allows it to move much faster than the standard membrane. As a result, the response is unbelievable and thanks to this, the reproduction of music is crystal clear and precise.
Thanks to the membrane the electrostatic driver is able to provide an awesome frequency range. For example, standard headphones or speakers will need more than one driver to reproduce the same frequency range as electrostatic ones. Unfortunately, this results in problems with the frequency response and this is another reason why the electrostatic headphones or speakers are better.
Detail and Accuracy
One of the most precise ways to reproduce music is with the help of electrostatic technology. The Shure earphones we have mentioned earlier, the KSE1500, don’t accentuate a specific frequency band. This has its good and bad sides. If the recording is excellent you will actually hear the music just like it was intended to be heard. However, this level of detail and clarity will easily reveal the mediocre recordings and audio sources. Of course, there are situations where this is more than welcome, but there are also cases where we really don’t want to listen to not so quality recordings, especially after we have invested our money for our electrostatic headphones or speakers.
Are they worth the money?
When it comes to electrostatic earphones, it took several years for Shure to finish the KSE150. And they did their job perfectly well because many audiophiles will always pick these earphones over other mainly because the sound quality and overall listening experience. No other product can match them in terms of detail, accuracy and clarity. So, if you are ready to bring your listening experience to a completely new level then the Shure KSE150 is the best option for you. Just try them, we guarantee you won’t regret it.

THE GREEN BERET KILLER JEFFREY MACDONALD: NEW FX DOCUMENTARY
A Wilderness of Error the book by Errol Morris has been made into a new documentary premiering on FX September 25,2020. This case about the Green Beret Dr. who was convicted of murdering his young wife and 2 small daughters has been disputed for over 50 years. Morris leans towards MacDonald's innocence.
Macdonald has proclaimed his innocence from the beginning, he was, however, convicted of murder and sentenced to three consecutive life sentences. He remains in a Maryland prison.
The new documentary examines the evidence in the case against MacDonald, who was convicted in 1979 of murdering his pregnant wife and two daughters. A Green Beret physician, MacDonald claimed that the murders were committed by drug-crazed hippies.
544 Castle Dr. Ft Bragg NC
Early on the morning of February 17, 1970, in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, Jeffrey MacDonald, a Green Beret doctor, called the police for help. When the officers arrived at his home they found the bloody and battered bodies of MacDonald’s pregnant wife and two young daughters. The word “pig” was written in blood on the headboard in the master bedroom. As MacDonald was being loaded into the ambulance, he accused a band of drug-crazed hippies of the crime.
So began one of the most notorious and mysterious murder cases of the twentieth century. Jeffrey MacDonald was finally convicted in 1979 and remains in prison today. Since then a number of bestselling books—including Joe McGinniss’s Fatal Vision and Janet Malcolm’s The Journalist and the Murderer—and a blockbuster television miniseries have told their versions of the MacDonald case and what it all means.
Errol Morris has been investigating the MacDonald case for over twenty years. A Wilderness of Error is the culmination of his efforts. It is a shocking book because it shows us that almost everything we have been told about the case is deeply unreliable, and crucial elements of the case against MacDonald simply are not true.
It is a masterful reinvention of the true-crime thriller, a book that pierces the haze of myth surrounding these murders with the sort of brilliant light that can only be produced by years of dogged and careful investigation and hard, lucid thinking.
By this book’s end, we know several things: that there are two very different narratives we can create about what happened at 544 Castle Drive, and that the one that led to the conviction and imprisonment for life of this man for butchering his wife and two young daughters is almost certainly wrong.
Along the way, Morris poses bracing questions about the nature of proof, criminal justice, and the media, showing us how MacDonald has been condemned, not only to prison but to the stories that have been created around him.
In this profoundly original meditation on truth and justice, Errol Morris reopens one of America’s most famous cases and forces us to confront the unimaginable. Morris has spent his career unsettling our complacent assumptions that we know what we’re looking at, that the stories we tell ourselves are true.

TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR CREDIT SCORE WITH INSTALLMENT LOANS
A good credit score will help you get loans and credit cards on attractive terms. If your credit score is poor, most banks will deny you loans, and credit card unions will reject your credit card application. Do you know an installment loan can help improve credit score? To make things easy for you, here are some tips on how to use an installment loan to improve your credit score.
The credit report consists of five essential categories. The two most important ones are Payment History and Amount Owed. The “Payment History” makes for 35% of your score, while amounts owed make another 30% of the credit score. According to financial experts, you need to use the funds to make credit card payments. This will lead to entries in the payment history section that improves the credit score.
On the other hand, it will reduce the “Amount Owed.” Credit Mix is also an essential section of the credit score. It refers to different debts you owe like credit card debt, student loan, car loan, home loan. The more diverse debt you have, the better the credit rating you will have.
When you continue to make repayments towards high-interest loans, you are losing money. Taking an installment loan and paying off high-interest debt seems like a good idea. The interest rate of installment loans falls in the range of 8% to 36%.
The interest rate of credit card debt falls in the range of 3.35% to 41.88%. This clearly shows credit debt is causing you loss. You may use the funds from installment loans to repay credit debt as it will save you money in the long run as you are not paying high-interest on the amount owed in the credit card.
Reduce Credit Utilization Rate
A high credit utilization rate hurts your credit score. Credit utilization rate refers to the amount of revolving credit you are using divided by the total credit available to you. For example, the credit limit available to you is $50,000, and your credit card dues are $25,000. It means the credit utilization ratio is 50%.
According to financial experts, you need to maintain a credit utilization ratio below 30%. This will help improve your credit score. If you have credit card dues more than $25,000, make sure you pay around $10,000 towards credit card dues to bring down the credit utilization ratio. Also, make sure you clear credit card dues each billing cycle.
If you find it challenging to manage multiple debt payments, an installment loan to improve credit score can help. You can consolidate your debts and pay off with one installment loan. With all other debts settled, you are only required to make one monthly repayment. It will allow you to create a smart budget and make timely repayment towards the installment loan.
When you make payments on time, the payment history improves, which positively affects the credit score. Check your credit score and ensure all financial activities are reported to credit bureaus. If you find any missing information in the credit report, ask for corrections.
These are some easy to follow tips to improve credit score through an installment loan. It will help if you remain disciplined and consistent in making repayments, which may slowly improve your credit score.
