AdvertisementSpence comes into the fight as a warm favorite but knows he has to be sharp and on his game, as any slip up would derail what has been a memorable career so far. Spence doesn’t seem like the kind of fighter who needs to guard against overconfidence though.A humble, down to Earth man who is looking to dominate the landscape of 147lbs, which he has gone on record as saying multiple times.Both boxers made the weight at the first time of trying on Friday with Spence weighing in at 146.75lbs and Ocampos coming in at 146.5lbs. The fight will be shown live on Showtime tomorrow night and will mark the second defense of Spence’s title which he won originally from Kell Brook in Sheffield, England. It has been reported that tomorrow night is expected to be a sell out crowd for the fight in Frisco, Texas.Given the relatively low profile of Campos, that’s quite the achievement to be fair, showing just how popular Spence is becoming.https://twitter.com/budcrawford402/status/1007689838525665280As all boxers know, it is not a good idea to overlook your opponent. Therefore, expect Spence to be focused on defending his title and Ocampo to be ready to take it this Saturday! Advertisement

Twelve global artists have voiced their concerns about climate change through many paintings that was showcased in the national Capital. They focused on carbon, a fundamental element for life and the primary cause for the greenhouse effect. Carbon is shown as a detriment for the future survival of human beings.Titled- ‘Carbon-12,’ after the most common natural isotope of the non-metal, the two-day-long exhibition began on May 3. It attempted to offer a unique amalgamation of art and science by shedding light on man’s relationship with earth while highlighting the impact of his carbon footprints. One of the artworks titled ‘The Sun’ displays a dark-skinned Egyptian woman, donning a crimson red bindi, who looks back at her viewers with teary-eyed rage, as if in rhetoric. “My idea was that she is the sun but she is sad and a little bit angry because she does not like what she sees – what people are doing to the planet,” said Lithuanian artist Dovile Norkute, who has two of her artworks on display. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Her works are also symbolic of a peaceful amalgamation of cultures. Her subject, who at first glance appears to be African but wears a familiar Egyptian hairdo with the quintessential red Indian bindi.Norkute’s works are an effortless mix of oil, graffiti, calligraphy and photo on collage. The selling art show was inaugurated at the Egg Art Studio by Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar, who termed it as the one that “easily touches your heart.” Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix“The topic is carbon footprint which we are experiencing today in the form of climate change. This is a beautiful exhibition makes people aware of the dangers and artists have come out with various good concepts and they can easily touch your heart,” he said. The minister who was part of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris last year and later at the UN Climate Summit in New York, talked about solutions regarding the climate change. “The challenge can be met by common will, collective wisdom and joint efforts. And therefore, what we decided in Paris and later in New York is about mitigating the challenge of climate change. I believe that if human intervention has caused climate change, now human intervention in positive way will help mitigate the challenge and we can deliver or hand over a better earth to the future generation,” he said. In layman’s language, carbon footprint can be essentially termed as impact of human beings on the environment measured by the greenhouse gases they are responsible for creating. Claudie Dimbeng hailing from Ivory Coast uses the concept of ‘mixed art relief’ to drive home the message of how carbon footprints are affecting the planet.Her work titled- ‘We are life, We are earth,’ is a textured piece of abstract art in myriad colours that often render a 3-dimensional effect. Its relevance to the theme of the exhibition lies in how she has created the artwork.The artist uses locally available materials, often found objects – marble powder, tree bark, leaves, handmade paper and recycled paper from factories, natural dyes and ceramic paste – all of which are “ecological.” “My artistic concept is mixed art relief which is mixed media technique and also a way to the mix of cultures, but it is very ecological and organic. “The purpose for me was to produce a green organic artwork which will be nature friendly because it is all about our impact on the planet. I also wanted to produce an artwork with a mix of cultures. So this is inspired by the colours of India matched with the colours of Africa,” said the artist, who has been living in Paris for the last three decades.Dimbeng says her work which is a splash of hues across a horizontal canvas, is symbolic of life, power and energy and can be seen a piece of earth. It shows the power that we have to make a change. For Indian-born artist, Premila Singh, the element of carbon has both positive and negative, and the focus should not be on eliminating it from the environment altogether, but to strike a balance.Her work in oil, showcases, the “carbon crying for help. Not the earth, but the carbon, because even they feel saturated.”
At one time or another, you’ve looked at the clock at the end of the day and wondered where the day went. You didn’t get a chance to finish this project, write that blog post or respond to those emails.Instead of doing something about it, you might have gone to bed hoping to be more productive the next day.After some extensive research, I’ve realized there’s no way to magically acquire productivity, especially not overnight. To drive more results, you just have to use the time you have more effectively.Crossing tasks off your to-do list happens more quickly when you eliminate distractions, busywork and interruptions. Luckily, there are tools designed to help you do just that. Here are five plugins designed to keep you focused and productive: Related: 44 Apps That Turn Your Smartphone Into a Productivity Powerhouse (Infographic)1. PasswordBox. You probably know people who are insanely organized. Their spreadsheets are color coded and they have folders for their iPhone apps. Everything they do follows a system. But for most people, things are a little messier, especially when it comes to passwords. If you’re anything like me, you probably have a dozen logins for various sites. Some are scribbled on Post-its or copy and pasted into Evernote. Not surprisingly, people waste a lot of time digging around for the right password. This is where PasswordBox comes in.This plugin automatically stores your username and password when you log in to a site. Logging in to webpages and retrieving your passwords is quick and seamless. Just make sure to choose a master password that’s easy to remember. 2. Pocket. Say you’re working on a blog post and take a quick break to scan your LinkedIn feed. Chances are, you’ll click on a catchy headline and spend a few minutes reading the article. The problem is, you probably won’t stop at one article. Before you know it you’ve spent 45 minutes jumping from articles to videos and SlideShares. Instead of falling down into the rabbit hole when you’re in the middle of a work task, save content for reading later.The app Pocket makes this easy. Unlike browser bookmark tools, there’s no dropdown menu or folder to choose from. Just click the Pocket icon once and the webpage is saved to your queue.Now, go ahead and finish that code you were cranking on or the brilliant email you were almost ready to send. The insightful article about the future of BitCoin will be waiting for you when you’re done. (Confession: I don’t always read everything I put in my Pocket queue but that doesn’t make the plugin any less useful.)Related: One Way to Beat Bad Online Habits and Be More Productive3. Inbox Pause.The typical employee checks email 36 times an hour, according to Atlassian. Switching gears that often makes it nearly impossible to get anything done. The same report said it takes people about 16 minutes to refocus after checking email.To check tasks off your to-do list, think outside the inbox.Inbox Pause does exactly what its name sounds like. If you’re about to dedicate an hour or two to heads-down work (and aren’t expecting any important messages), use this app to temporarily turn off incoming email. By pausing your inbox flow, you won’t be tempted to check it constantly because new emails won’t be delivered until you click Inbox Pause again. Boom. You have a child-proof inbox. 4. StayFocusd.Even when you’re in your most productive mode, you’re not immune to distractions like checking BuzzFeed and social media. Unless you have superhuman willpower, the only way to really avoid this time suck is to take those sites out of the equation.StayFocusd locks you out of distracting sites making it easier to focus on the task at hand. The app lets you set a time limit on how long you want to be blocked from Facebook or the number of minutes you want to spend on the site before you’re blocked. With no addicting sites to turn to, you can spend your time getting stuff done. 5. Sidekick.Being productive isn’t just about saving time. It’s also about optimizing the time you have. Sidekick, developed by a team at my company, HubSpot, is an email productivity tool that helps you take the guesswork out of emailing. Say you email a client or colleague and don’t hear back for a few days. Is that person ignoring you?Did he or she open it and then forget to respond? Did it go to a junk folder? Knowing how or when to follow up with the person is tough when you don’t have any context. Sidekick notifies you in real time when a contact opens your email or clicks on a link in that email. You don’t have to wonder if your message ended up in a spam folder and more important, you’ll know better when to reach out. So instead of taking a shot in the dark, start sending timely, relevant emails with Sidekick.Distractions like social media and email are here to stay. If you want to grow your career and your business, it’s on you to create an environment of productivity. These plugins merely scratch the surface on ways you can do that.
