The cat, owned by a woman who lives near Manhattan Avenue, up the hill from Union City, went missing for a week. Then “Max” returned having been tortured with cuts, starvation, shaved hair, and what looked like a symbol carved into his head. DeWeese says that her neighbor brought the cat over to borrow the phone and call the vet after her cat returned.“She came over to my house last week and said her phone wasn’t working and she needed to call the vet,” said DeWeese. “[She said the cat] had come home but was in bad shape. Some of his fur was taken off and in his head was some sort of symbol that may have been cut in there.”DeWeese said her neighbor took him to the vet who put him on an IV, as his cuts were infected.“He was so sad and scared,” said DeWeese, who went to visit the animal before he passed away. According to DeWeese, neighbors are frightened.“We have already put up thousands of posters in the area and we want to put up more in nearby towns,” said DeWeese. “It’s frightening all of us. These kind of people escalate.”She added, “This is a nice neighborhood. A lot of us have cats and dogs. We are all very afraid. We have had animals disappear and we don’t know what has happened to them.”The owner of the cat told NJ.com, “Max didn’t deserve this. He was a wonderful creature and a friend of people and we have to be friends back. He really was unusual. Please on behalf of a great animal and on behalf of other animals, please let us know so this doesn’t happen again.”If you have information call the Union City Police Department at (201) 865-1111. × UNION CITY–A $4,500 reward is being offered by the city of Union City and some residents for information on unknown perpetrators who allegedly tortured a local cat. Trudy DeWeese said neighbors and Mayor Brian Stack are offering the reward for information. “Please, if you have any tiny bit of information, please call the police. You never know what could lead to catching this person,” said DeWeese, a neighbor of the pet’s owner.

Load remaining images Beloved bluegrass band Cabinet kicked off their annual two-day Susquehanna Breakdown festival, named after the band’s stomping instrumental of the same name. The band brought a number of great artists out for the fest in their home state, and welcomed The Dishonest Fiddlers, Coal Town Rounders, Larry Keel Experience and The Flux Capacitor for a wonderful day of music at Montage Mountain near Scranton, PA.Of course, Cabinet also played two sets of their own music at the festival, including a full set with the bluegrass legend Larry Keel. Fortunately, our photographer Dave DeCrescente was on hand to capture the magic. Check out some photos from the performance below: Check out a full gallery of images below:
Long week? Have no fear–Ghost Light is here to groove you into the weekend with the release of their second single set to appear on their forthcoming debut album, Best Kept Secrets. The new song is titled, “Don’t Come Apart Just Yet, My Dear”, and follows the previously-shared “Best Kept Secret”, which arrived with the album’s announcement last month.With “Don’t Come Apart Just Yet, My Dear”, the five-piece rock band once again showcases their knack for matching catchy melodies with the collective power of all their instruments for a fun 5:38-minute listening experience.Related: Ghost Light Announces Late-Night Show During 2019 Jazz FestThe song opens up with authority, as the fuzz of Tom Hamilton‘s guitar dances along with an opening solo while a communal chant of “Hey!” is heard in the background to get the energy going right out the gate. The song quickly takes a turn at the 0:38-second mark, when Hamilton trades his overdrive pedal for the warmth of an acoustic 12-string, only to come in with the opening lines of the first verse shortly thereafter.Guitarist Raina Mullen is also heard joining in on the fun in helping out with lead vocal duties during the second verse, and providing some excellent harmonic contrast alongside Hamilton during the choruses.The band’s two guitarists added a few thoughts on their new single to go with the song’s premiere on Thursday.“I had the framework of this song demoed out about five or six years ago when I was getting back into two things: listening to Brian Jonestown Massacre, and smoking pot,” Hamilton said with yesterday’s song premiere via Guitar Player. “I think you can cover the feel, guitar tones, and tempo shifts all within those two activities.”Hamilton also added, “The juxtaposition of tones was important. Sloppy fuzzed out electric guitars and then like a light switch, it’s lush and precise 12-stringed acoustic guitars. The tempo shifts. The male, then female voices. It tells a story, sonically.”Mullen also chimed in on mentioning what kind of sounds she had in mind for how the two guitarists should mesh their sounds for their latest recording, stating, “When Tom and I were putting together the guitarmony bit at the end, I wanted it to feel like a plane going in for a rough landing, and I think we nailed it,” Mullen added. “It’s turbulent and gritty and it’s fun to play.”The band will have plenty of chances to play their new original material live when they head on our their spring 2019 tour starting later this month with a show in Des Moines, IA on March 20th. Tickets for the upcoming concert run are on sale now, and can be purchased here.“Don’t Come Apart Just Yet, My Dear” is now available for streaming and digital download on major digital music platforms. Fans can check out the Spotify player below to stream the new tune.Best Kept Secrets is scheduled to arrive on March 22nd.Fans heading down to New Orleans during this year’s New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival can catch Ghost Light performing a late-night show on Saturday, April 27th (technically early-morning on April 28th) at Republic NOLA.

Unlike the Vivo V20, the V20 SE does not run Android 11 out of the box – you get Android 10 instead. It still has the new FunTouch OS 11 UI on top, and Vivo is promising to roll out a software update to Android 11 soon. My unit was running the September Android security patch, which is fairly recent. The UI looks a lot like what you get on the V20 and there is some preinstalled bloatware. I found Facebook, Flipkart, PhonePe, Snapchat, and Spotify on my device. Vivo also has its own V-Appstore which is an alternative to the Google Play Store. There’s also a Themes app, which lets you customise the UI right down to the fonts.The V20 SE lets you customise the charging and unlock animations. You can also take advantage of the AMOLED panel and enable an always-on display mode. There is an Ultra game mode which lets you mute incoming calls and notifications while you are playing games, similar to what I’ve seen on Vivo smartphones I’ve tested in the past.Vivo V20 SE performanceThe V20 SE is capable of delivering acceptable performance without any issues. While using the smartphone, I did not notice lag, and multitasking was a breeze thanks to the 8GB of RAM. The in-display fingerprint scanner as well as face recognition were quick to unlock the Vivo V20 SE. Casual usage was good enough, but the slow processor does seem to increase app loading times.I ran a few benchmark tests to see where the Vivo V20 SE stands. In AnTuTu, the V20 SE managed 1,84,085, which is lower than what competitors at the same price level can manage, for example the Poco X3 (Review), which scored 2,80,030. The V20 SE scored 6,364 in PCMark Work 2.0 andmanaged 315 and 1,389 points respectively in Geekbench’s single-core and multi-core tests. In the graphics benchmark test GFXBench’s T-Rex and Car Chase scenes, the V20 SE managed 32fps and 6.2fps.The glossy back of the Vivo V20 SE is a fingerprint magnet The left side of the V20 SE is bare, as Vivo has positioned the SIM tray at the top. You get dual Nano-SIM slots along with a dedicated microSD card slot which makes storage expansion possible. The top and the bottom of the V20 SE are flat. There’s a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a speaker, and a microphone at the bottom.- Advertisement – The V20 SE managed good selfies in daylight as well as low light. You can take portrait shots using the selfie camera, and the V20 SE blurs out the background automatically. Beautification is enabled by default, which smoothens the output. In low light, you can use a screen flash, which Vivo calls Aura Screen Light, and this does help capture brighter images.Video recording tops out at 4K for the primary camera and 1080p for the selfie shooter. Footage shot at 1080p in daylight was stabilised but not footage shot at 4K. In low light there was a slight shimmer in the footage shot at 1080p, while 4K footage wasn’t stabilised.VerdictThe Vivo V20 SE should have been called the V20 Lite, considering that Vivo has watered down the specifications quite a lot to target a lower price point. Just like the Vivo V20, this phone focuses on design and cameras, so if you are looking for decent camera performance at around the Rs. 20,000 price point, the Vivo V20 SE can offer you that. On the other hand, if you are looking for a well-rounded smartphone, the V20 SE isn’t your best bet. It sports a weaker processor, which is evident when playing heavy games. In this case, the Realme 7 Pro (Review) and the Poco X3 (Review) would be suitable alternatives. Vivo V20 SE is the latest addition to the Vivo’s V-series, and it is positioned as a more affordable version of the Vivo V20, which was launched last month. With the V20, Vivo focused on design and cameras, and you can see a similar approach with the Vivo V20 SE as well. However, to target a lower price point, the V20 SE has undergone a cost-cutting exercise resulting in lower resolution camera sensors and a different processor, among other things. So is the Vivo V20 SE still special, or has Vivo gone a bit too far? Let’s find out. Turning the phone around reveals the triple camera setup of the V20 SE. The camera module sits in the top left corner and is slightly raised. Vivo offers two colour options, Aquamarine Green and Gravity Black. I had the latter for this review, and I found the glossy finish at the back prone to fingerprints and smudges. I used the supplied case to avoid wiping the smartphone frequently. Vivo also includes a 33W FlashCharge charger in the box, which should top up the 4,100mAh battery quickly.Vivo V20 SE specificationsWhile Vivo calls this a Special Edition (SE) the specifications are watered down compared to the Vivo V20. Powering the V20 SE is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC, paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. There is only one configuration of the V20 SE on sale in India, and it is priced at Rs. 20,990. While you do get decent amounts of RAM and storage, the processor isn’t very powerful considering the price. You will find the exact same processor in much more affordable smartphones such as the Realme Narzo 20A and the Nokia 5.3 (Review).The V20 SE sports a 6.44-inch AMOLED display with an in-display fingerprint scanner just like the Vivo V20. The display has good viewing angles and gets bright enough when outdoors. You also get the option to tweak the colour profile and temperature of the panel.The V20 SE runs Funtouch OS 11 on top of Android 10 In daylight, the Vivo V20 SE managed decent shots with good details on objects even at a distance. While shooting outdoors in bright conditions, the V20 SE is quick to enable HDR. Switching to the ultra-wide-angle camera offers a wider field of view but at the cost of details. Objects at a distance weren’t as crisp as they appeared in photos taken with the primary camera. There was visible distortion at the edges as well. You can take photos at the full 48-megapixel resolution but the level of detail is not as good as in shots taken at the default 12-megapixel binned resolution.Vivo V20 SE close-up camera sample (tap to see full-size image)Vivo V20 SE macro camera sample (tap to see full-size image) The V20 SE has an AMOLED display and an in-display fingerprint sensor Low-light camera performance is average overall. The V20 SE managed to keep noise under control but photos appeared smoothened and objects at a distance had a watercolour-like effect. Enabling Night Mode resulted in slightly brighter images with better detail, but it took about 3-4 seconds to process each shot.Vivo V20 SE daylight portrait selfie sample (tap to see resized image)Vivo V20 SE low light selfie sample (tap to see resized image) Vivo V20 SE design- Advertisement – Closeups turned out really well, and the phone managed to capture sharp images. It also adds a soft depth effect to the background. Portrait shots with steady subjects turned out well, with good edge detection. The V20 SE uses its ultra-wide-angle camera for macro shots and lets you get super close to a subject. I like this approach, since you get good functionality without needing another sensor, and shots have a higher resolution.Vivo V20 SE low light camera sample (tap to see full-size image)Vivo V20 SE Night Mode camera sample (tap to see full-size image) Performance was noticeably lower while playing heavy titles such as Call of Duty: Mobile. I noticed longer load times than usual, and the game ran with the graphics quality and frame rate set to Medium by default. After playing the game for 20 minutes, I noticed a six percent drop in the battery level. The Vivo V20 SE did not have any issues running casual games such as Among Us.Battery life on the V20 SE is decent, and the phone went on for a day and a half without me rushing for a charger. In our HD video loop test, the V20 SE went on for 14 hours and 31 minutes which is about the same as what the Vivo V20 managed. Charging was quick with the 33W charger bundled in the box. The device got to 52 percent in 30 minutes and about 96 percent in an hour.Vivo V20 SE camerasThe Vivo V20 SE packs a triple camera setup at the back consisting of a 48-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera that is also capable of macro photography, and a 2-megapixel “bokeh camera”. The camera app feels similar and is super easy to use. AI is enabled by default and the phone is quick to determine what it’s pointed towards. It also suggested different shooting modes and cameras based on the scene. Vivo has added an AI Image Matting feature in the album app which lets you edit photos to change the sky, add a moving effect, or even remove objects.Vivo V20 SE daylight camera sample (tap to see full-size image)Vivo V20 SE daylight ultra-wide-angle camera sample (tap to see full-size image) Vivo claims that the focus was on design for the Vivo V20 SE, and that is evident. The smartphone is thin and the weight is easily manageable. Vivo has gone with a 6.44-inch AMOLED display just like on the Vivo V20 (Review), with a dewdrop notch at the top and thin borders surrounding it. You get a full-HD+ resolution with a 20:9 aspect ratio, which means the display is tall and narrow.The sides of the smartphone are rounded, which makes it comfortable to hold. The frame of the V20 SE is made out of plastic and all the buttons are on the right. I found the power and the volume buttons to be easy to reach. They also had a clicky feedback, so I didn’t have to second-guess a button press.– Advertisement – – Advertisement –
Mesut Ozil’s agent has insisted there is “no chance” the German midfielder will leave Arsenal this summer. Two men threatened to “kill” Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil Dr Erkut Sogut says Ozil will stay in north London at least until the expiry of his current deal in June 2021. The 31-year-old was linked with an exit from the Gunners in January after struggling for game time and form in the first half of the campaign. He has enjoyed an extended run in the side under Mikel Arteta but failed to have a meaningful impact on proceedings as Arsenal suffered late heartbreak in the Europa League at the hands of Olympiakos on Thursday night Arsenal record £27.1m losses for 2019 – and Europa League failure could make 2020 worse “At the moment, we don’t even talk about it, because he still has one-and-a-half-years left,” he told the i.Advertisement Loading… “He still has 15 months to go. Until then, he will stay at Arsenal, for sure. He will stay until the end of his contract. There’s no chance he’ll leave.” Ozil moved to the Emirates from Real Madrid in January 2013 for £42.5million. He penned his current terms in 2018 and earns in the region of £350,000-a-week at Arsenal. When he does leave the Gunners, Ozil would likely be inundated with lucrative offers from China and the USA, but Sogut says he will continue playing at the highest level as long as possible. “He is going into the end of this contract, he will be 32 years old, he will be a free agent, and it’s not a bad situation,” he added.
