Really…Wolf Van Halen, son of the late legendary rocker Eddie Van Halen, seems a bit salty he didn’t win Best Rock Song at the 2022 Grammys on Sunday night. Wolf, 31, was nominated for his song “Distance” which he wrote about his late father, a founding member of Van Halen. The award instead went to Foo Fighters’ “Waiting on a War.”“We came, we saw, but we did NOT conquer and that’s ok!” Van Halen wrote on Twitter after the awards ceremony. Van Halen attended the show with his girlfriend, Andraia Allsop, and his mom, beloved TV actress and Food Network star Valerie Bertinelli, who gushed to Entertainment Tonight about how proud she was of her son. Van Halen knows his dad would also be proud, saying, “He would be losing his mind, but also, at the same time, he would be like, ‘duh,’ because that’s how much he believed in me.”Getty Images

Last week we looked into how fast charging affects battery capacity and asked you about your preferred charge rate. Fast charging clearly emerged as the preferred method, while slow overnight charging has clearly fallen out of fashion. The thing about slow charging is that it’s always an option – just use one of the low-power chargers you have in your drawer. These charge fast enough with no downsides. It’s also worth noting that many of the phones that boast super fast charging capabilities are marketed as gaming phones.

Many people wonder how late 19th-century famous figures might have sounded and moved, what sorts of gestures they may have made, and what kinds of facial expressions they might have displayed.

KYIV, Ukraine — Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy warned his people early Saturday that retreating Russian forces were creating “a complete disaster” outside the capital as they leave mines across “the whole territory,” including around homes and corpses. He issued the warning as the humanitarian crisis in the encircled city of Mariupol deepened, with Russian forces blocking evacuation operations for the second day in a row. They are mining homes, mining equipment, even the bodies of people who were killed,” Zelenskyy said in his nightly video address to the nation. “Europe doesn’t have the right to be silent about what is happening in our Mariupol,” Zelenskyy said. A resident who gave her name only as Lila said she helped hurriedly bury them on March 5, just before Russian troops moved in.

As you may know, yesterday OnePlus decided to finally take its 10 Pro out of China, and announced it for global markets. Today, a mere 24 hours after that, the company is already issuing the first software update to the global model. In the EU it's going to be NE2213_11.A.12, and this rollout should follow very soon. As usual, the rollout of this update will be incremental, so it may take a few days for it to complete. Given that the global model was only announced a day ago, we're guessing this update is what's going to be waiting for 99% of owners as they take the phone out of the box.

Today, the company tweeted that it will be holding an announcement tomorrow, April 1. During the announcement, Nothing founder Carl Pei also mentioned that Nothing intends to create a kind of open ecosystem meant to compete with other ecosystems that lock the user into their lineup of products. Otherwise, there aren’t any actual specifications offered, but that may change tomorrow when Nothing makes its “(1) more thing” announcement. The Nothing Launcher will be arriving next month, so perhaps the announcement could be related to that. Perhaps Nothing plans to make a real announcement to break through the noise on a day otherwise reserved for cheeky jokes and fake announcements.

WARSAW, Poland — President Joe Biden on Saturday dramatically escalated his rhetoric against Vladimir Putin, calling for the Russian leader to be removed because of his brutal invasion of Ukraine. Earlier in the day, as Biden met with Ukrainian refugees, Russia kept up its pounding of cities throughout Ukraine. Some of the women and children told Biden that they fled without their husbands and fathers, men of fighting age who were required to remain behind to aid the resistance against Putin's forces. “Your freedom is ours," Biden told Poland's president, Andrzej Duda earlier, echoing one of that country's unofficial mottos. “I’m confident that Vladimir Putin was counting on dividing NATO," Biden said.

Biden met on Friday with American soldiers who are serving alongside Polish troops on NATO’s eastern flank. More than 2.2 million refugees have entered Poland since the start of the month-old war, and many propose to stay there. The European Union has accused Poland of eroding judicial independence since the Law and Justice party started governing in 2015. In 2018, while asking the U.S. to establish a permanent military base in Poland, Duda proposed calling it "Fort Trump.”The proposal sparked some mockery in Europe and was quickly dropped. Before Biden returns to Washington on Saturday, he is expected to address the Polish people.
