The Biggest Stadium Sport In America

The Biggest Stadium Sport In America

NASCAR stands for the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing. The sport is technically a league, but motor-sport is just too broad. The sport was founded in February 21, 1948 by William France Sr., as a family operated business to make stock car racing popular in America. Originally, NASCAR had three series; modified, roadster, and strictly stock. William was surprised that very small crowds arrived in roadster races, so he quickly abandoned the series. The modified series continues today as the Whelen Modified Tour.

Windows 8.1: Was It A Flop?

Windows 8.1: Was It A Flop?

Windows 8 was released on October 26, 2012 by Microsoft as an attempt to change how people use computers. They achieved this using a new user interface called “Metro”. In Windows 8, users could install programs through their proprietary “app store”. Microsoft also unveiled “Onedrive”; a service that gives the user 15 gigabytes of free online storage. The operating system was not without its flaws, and so consumers pushed for Windows 8.1. The update lowered the system requirements for the operating system so that lower end computers could run it smoothly. Thanks to the update, users can now 3-D print, use wi-fi direct, use miracast technology, and use monitors that support NVme.

Tim Burton Throughout The Ages

Tim Burton Throughout The Ages

For the past 30 years in the movie industry, there has never been a director so distinctive at combining the elements of horror and comedy other than Tim Burton. Burton is the man behind such movies as Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and the 1989 version of Batman, staring Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholosan.

The future of Burton’s career shall be judged entirely on the continuum of his movies, from the very first motion picture he produced to the movies he is currently producing.
