Rusty Staub never resembled an athlete so much as a 205-lb Sherlock Holmes who'd taken an intense interest in the game of baseball. Staub began with modest natural skills and honed them to precision through perpetual practice. Baseball was equal parts discipline and sport to Staub, whose broad, curious world view attracted him to the study of history and gourmet cookery. "He leads the league in idiosyncrasies," said one Staub observer. "He makes a science of getting ready to play to the point where it almost becomes an obsession to him." For years, Staub operated Rusty's restaurant on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. He'd often embarrass teammates who joined him for dinner on the road by sending his meal back two or three times until the chef got it right.

Staub retired with 2,716 hits and an unmatched reputation as a batter. "He is a pure hitter," said Duke Snider. Staub said, "I discovered at a very early age that nothing was going to come easy for me, that I'd have to work for my success." Despite a lack of speed, Staub led his league four times in outfield assists. When he was placed at DH by the Tigers, he knocked in a career-high 121 runs in 1978. The Mets made him a pinch hitter in his final few years, and he tied records in 1983 for consecutive pinch hits (8) and RBI (25), and had a record 81 pinch at-bats (he hit .296).

Staub signed with the Houston Colt .45s (later the Astros) for $100,000 in 1961 and played in 150 games as a 19-year-old rookie. He and Ty Cobb are the only players to homer before age 20 and after age 40, and Staub is the only player to appear in 500 games for four teams and collect 500 hits for four teams. His short, lefthanded stroke produced line drives and a .333 average for the Astros in 1967, with a league-leading 44 doubles. Always popular, Staub became a national hero (and was nicknamed Le Grand Orange for his red hair in French-speaking Quebec) in Canada as a star for the expansion Expos. He hit 30 homers for Montreal in 1970. A broken hand, his first major injury, sidelined him with the Mets in 1972, but he played a dramatic role in the postseason in 1973. Staub hurt his shoulder against the Reds in Game Four of the playoffs when he caught Dan Driessen's 11th-inning drive and smashed into the right-field wall at Shea Stadium. He took cortisone shots and threw underhand in the World Series against the A's. Though unable to pull the ball, he socked an opposite field homer off Oakland's Ken Holtzman to win Game Four.

  • problem31 said: Wearable device layout in the capital wearable device as the Internet portal of the value of depression, it is attracting a lot of venture capital layout. Like smart bracelet, smart watches, smart glasses can fill the limelight without a moment two smart phones, mobile Internet market in Nike Air Max 2015 Men order to successfully snatch the cake. Now it seems, has not out of reach. IDG, Matrix Partners, Northern Light Venture Capital, Gobi Air Jordan 7 capital, innovation workshops, Kuehne investment, a large number of early stage investment institutions since last year in the areas of concern, and quickly layout, layout belong to an earlier investment institutions in the industry . Gobi capital investment director Yang Shiyi predicts fourth quarter of this year there Nike Air Jordan 7 will be a lot of wearable devices Flex product onto the market, there will be many cases are invested in the future in the second quarter of next year, 'as in 2011, various institutions concerned about the mobile Internet venture projects, in 2014, more capital will be put into the field of hardware and software combination. 'Gobi capital invested in environmental monitoring a combination of software and hardware projects, and is currently in Nike Air Max 2015 Women the field of children smart wearable devices research. IDG is invested in open source hardware platform SeeedStudio. Do the same open source hardware platform MakeBlock were given a Northern Lights investments. As of September this year, the reporter Statistics wearable technology venture investment case more than 30 cases. Cooler in the market, while popular game business, wearable technology as an Air Jordan Heels emerging field, has burgeoned. It's like when CURRY ONE the whole people do have mobile phones in 2010, the entrance of new mobile Internet device market wearable war is being waged. Internet new entrance Google smart glasses, a variety of market education wearable device innovation possible. 2013, wearable technology is developing rapidly in the area of ​​health, intelligent and healthy bracelet watch market is gradually expanding. With respect to the high threshold of smart glasses, the market attracts more number of manufacturers, but also earlier productized. Nike, Fit-bit, Jawbone, ThalmicLabs, Inter-aXon, ZetrOZ, Sony, Samsung, Microsoft, Apple, Casio, and many agencies are speeding up the pace Nike Shoes Global of innovation and R \u0026 D. In addition to start-up companies, China's largest Internet companies and hardware are have the layout. 360 introduced the entry-level applications for mobile WIFI, recently also in the field of children wearable products for internal hatch, grand GEAK Smart Watch and GEAK Lord of the James Harden Rings, Baidu developed similar to Google's Baidu Eye glasses also closed beta, millet smart watches will be available. In addition, including Huawei, ZTE, Coolpad, and so a large number of companies have also launched their own smart in wearable incubator Nike Air Jordan 11 Women project. The market Nike Air Max may not be so good. 'For Nike Air Jordan 4 Women example, a smart bracelet, there are a large number of entrepreneurs are doing a bunch of people doing personal feeling now, next year will die a large number of independent operation to make intelligent watch entrepreneurs, after Air Jordan 6 the influx of large companies, there is no What chance. 'China's largest mobile phone / tablet peripheral manufacturers Pcase co-founder Huang Ming Jie said. However, this market is enormous. It is understood that in 2012 China market a variety of devices wearable device shipments reached 2.3 million, the market scale reached 610 million yuan, 2015 China market Nike Air Jordan 5 wearable device market volume will Nike Air Jordan Flight 45 Nike Air Jordan 9 be more than 40 million, the market scale reached 11.49 billion yuan. Indeed, while many of Jordan B'Mo Nike Lunar the wearable device products have been available, D Rose IV but life still far from the public users, especially, there are still a number of key issues of hardware, application services and customer acceptance of the product of these three aspects Nike Air Jordan Women of a direct impact on wearable devices universal. First, the urgent need to upgrade the hardware of life, often users complain, spent 2,000 yuan to buy a smart Nike Shoes bracelet, one day there is no JORDAN electricity. At present, the market is also a lack of killer applications. 'Now look at the hottest wearable device Pebble, shipments of 270,000, APP is one million downloads, with mobile Internet experience point of view, is too small. For VC, this business is difficult to have scale. software and hardware in the field of fire for so long, the total number of domestic VC investment project will not exceed double digits. change in the mobile Internet market, which is unthinkable. 'Wu Feng, vice president of the Northern Lights concluded. He believes that the existence of the current problem of wearable devices, such is the demand to find a narrow niche, rather than the user rigid demand, unable to retain users, use threshold is too high, the data collected can not be converted to the user with valuable information. Gobi capital currently looking for children's intelligence watch area start-ups, hoping to Air Jordan 9 find the child Cheap Nike Free Outlet anti-lost class Internet 2.0 era Nike Shox products. Huang Ming-Jie Tan Yan they have done such a venture, but once it comes to technical problems, the problem of market education, 'ask if there really use Smart Watch is built-in SIM card version, will challenge the consumer habits, unless operators Suppliers have special packages Nike Air Max 2014 Women to promote. 'Huang expressed. Upstream and downstream investment opportunities extremely intelligent router vendors routing (Hi-WiFi) in mid-October has just announced the completion ten million US dollars level A round of financing, the valuation has more than one hundred million US dollars. In May this year, Tencent cooperation with the Union of pushing anti-phishing route Nike Air Jordan 8 after June on the line 360 ​​Router. Has been lying in the corner of the living room routers, is being redefined start-up companies and large enterprises. The technology blog got Lei Jun Lei Feng network personal investment in the country to focus on hardware and software combination of reports, known for its founder Lin Jun said the company is also investing in a number of Flex-level projects, but the most promising is doing OEM ODE project or open-source platform, as Nike SB Shoes well as quarterly breakdown, the vertical field. 'I agreed to do ODM, OEM opportunities and potential this are great. However, this segment should be Air Jordan Outlet Air Jordan 8 specific, the vertical field of outsiders looking at some small entrance, but go after, discovered that in fact is a very big market. For example, the data needs of the market and the maternal and child behind, data model all kinds of professional sport, coupled with the algorithm is more valuable after these entrepreneurial teams are very large requirements. 'Huang Ming Jie said. Zeng Liqing founded the investment Kuehne began Nike Running a year ago to get involved in the Flex project has an investment portfolio to two companies, is an angel investment level. 'Our main concern is the box kind of product and smart appliances have relations projects. One is based on the Android kernel system designed to make set-top box, the other segments do is interface design and sensing.' Kuehne Investment Director Deng Haitao said he thought not perpendicular to the vertical is not the focus, the focus is to emphasize intelligent, 'Who can make a play tied with the micro-channel hardware, Bluetooth speakers who do take QQ music, the universal nature of the products, are good chance. 'Like with, Huang Ming-jie also optimistic wearable hardware and software support services,' such as making its upstream and downstream, such as ultra-thin battery, sensor development and sales, most recently seen in less than half a millimeter new battery. 'he said. 'Overall, it in this area is still in a very early stage, there is no iPhone a mobile space, or the automotive sector Tes-la appears. But it is a good direction, because the entry of the mobile Internet will certainly be moved forward . software and hardware in the field can be successful, must be using the Internet to transform the hardware of thinking, transform the user experience, the transformation of production, sales and customer service people. 'Wu Feng expressed. 10:49PM 08/12/15
  • yyourself said: Why your Android phone is always more you use, the slower? text / À evening according to third-party survey data show that 77% of the Android mobile phone users admit dogged affect the phone slow, Baidu search 'Android + card slow', there are over 4.6 million results. In the industry, Android phone has always had 'the more you use the more slow' reputation, this phenomenon is even beyond the hardware category - a lot of high-end Android phones on the hardware parameters are superior to the same generation iPhone, but they will still be in use for six months to a After years into the 'less smooth' state - this is Kids Nike Trainers a troubling thing. However, if you want to answer this question, we need to be traced back to the last century, to find the origins of smart phones. Western history and fantasy literature is very keen on the expression 'blood' setting, its traditional culture that the blood can determine talent and leads to philosophical thinking 'if fate is doomed,' the. For example, they are more familiar with the 'Harry Potter' series, after deconstruction is not difficult to find, which is actually a story of fight history Gryffindor and Slytherin and descendant of two lineages (Harry Potter Gryffindor descendants inherited the courage, Voldemort Slytherin descendants of its own ambitions), and ubiquitous prophecy (a eventually kill another), but also carry the usual Western fatalism Complex. To the technology industry, 'origin' is replaced by the definition of 'gene', a company what kind of genes determines its areas of expertise, this evaluation has been widely accepted as unique idealist philosophy materialistic age, and withstood the fact that the test - when we tried to explain Microsoft lost on the Internet, Google defeated in the social network, Baidu stop at the reason e-commerce, will be heartfelt emotion 'as early as in the original script had been written many years ago.' Similarly, why 'card slow' problem Android phone is always to be more serious than the iPhone, it's the answer from the outset doomed. In 1965, Bell Labs, General Electric and MIT can begin to develop a balance between ease of use and powerful nature of the operating system, after six years of collaboration, a software engineer Ken Thompson at Bell Labs completed during the vacation system called Unix written, and eventually became the parent company of Bell Labs, US telecommunications giant AT \u0026 amp; T's commercial products, and launched a decades-long copyright works. Although it has many variants, but in the strict sense, Unix is ​​not an open source operating system. In 1991, a Finnish college student, is also a computer hacker Linus Torvalds, he is fascinated to Unix, but can not afford the required workstations running Unix, so he tries to own the same programmatically write operation called for Linux system, and the father of free software Richard Stallman under the spirit of inspiration, the Linux added to the Free Software Foundation among (FSF), to allow everyone to use, copy, modify Air Jordan 6 and even sell Linux systems, and to assume the obligations of open source, to ban the Linux closure of attempts. The reason for such a big fuss is about Unix and Linux operating systems story because iOS and Android, it is based on Unix and Linux were derived out of work. That is, two features of Unix and Linux, iPhone and Android phones caused a huge difference in the use of experience. Jobs had invited Linux founder Linus Torvalds to work Apple to abandon open-source Linux, assisting the development of Mac OS enclosed Mach kernel, the latter after an argument with Jobs expressly rejected. Mac OS starting from privatization will be the operating system of Apple as a business strategy, with the words of Steve Jobs, he is put into the iPhone iOS in the box, and then sold to users. So, iPhone reason why the situation does not appear 'the more you use the card,' is because of Apple's phone has its highest administrative privileges from hardware to software, in a closed environment, the application can not call from a third party bear the limits of instruction over iPhone, naturally can not create sustainable systems damage. In contrast Android phones, because the open source open conditions, Google can not be constrained from the code that port third-party applications, at the same time, because the Linux kernel configuration applied when retrieval system function must get ROOT privileges, which also led to a large number of applications because single-function implementation requirements and the level of access to the entire ROOT dominated Android phone can read or write in any storage location, this high degree of freedom is tantamount to opening a Pandora's box, so malicious App Android phone can not advance fortification. It is also controversial open-source software, and in commercial areas was inconsistent reasons: it concerned whether the user is granted freedom - including the freedom to go beyond the boundaries of freedom - and not from the worst starting point to consider how to avoid being the risk of abuse. Although Google as a giant chain has been trying to unified management, but when this chain increasingly large, even Google can only play the role of one of the time, Android's out of control also reasonable. For example, the latest version of Android usually takes more than a year and a half, to make it active Android phones accounted for more than 50%, but iOS 7 only two months, more than half of the iPhone let all been updated. In addition, an application out of the penalty if Apple App Store, and it can no longer be attached to any one of the legitimate iPhone inside, but if an application is Google expelled from Google Play, Air Jordan 9 Retro but it still can log on Various third-party application market, provide normal download and install. So, Android is such a natural short board, but Air Jordan 1 also spawned a 'mobile tuning' of the market, and brought Air Jordan 3 Retro about a new industrial chain. 'Mobile tuning' of the first stage, is that the system layer. In Android L planning Android 4.4 and later, the operation mode of the application it replaced by the Dalvik ART, its simplicity is 'pre-compiled' effect, that is, when an application is first installed when Android, its byte code had been compiled into native machine code, start-up and implementation of follow-up time is reduced when the application is run. According to Google's own published results in different performance tests App, the average enhance the rate of speed comparison ART Dalvik reached 80% in some projects, ART enhance the rate even more than the 1.5 times, the result can be described as very gratifying . This is the Android Google hopes to solve the problem from the source card slow efforts, but this is just to have a role in performance optimization, the problem can not be solved because the application calls the resource violation arising. Also, because when you install the application of the 'pre-compiled' the entire installation time will be longer, after installation generated files become large, such as the latest Google+ installation package is only 6.9M, but after it is installed APK size reached 28.3M, which Android phone storage space and take up too much of a problem. 'Mobile tuning' in the second stage, that the ROM layer. As the world's largest Android market, many Chinese mobile phone manufacturers have to develop a dedicated ROM for the sale of products to add luster, most of the ROM, will also be considered to optimize the system for Android, such as MIUI V6 has stated that 'the introduction of a variety of Linux kernel memory optimization technology to improve operational efficiency applications. ' That is, Google do things like, ROM vendor major optimization work, but also for Linux knife, marked with various patches to the underlying language can be better adapted to a variety of mobile terminals. Or in MIUI V6, for example, in the introduction of new features, it that there is a: 'ZRAM scheduling optimization technology', in fact, is the Linux kernel ZARM a memory module, the role is to draw out a section in memory acts as a virtual disk, to carry the Linux swap partition, will accommodate some of the tasks compressed into that memory usage increase, so the CPU to memory services (as the current surplus smartphone universal CPU, and memory is the bottleneck). However, ROM is a double edged sword, it is for Android modify Nike Lunar Haze the underlying system, and it is for memory space occupied, but also have an increased risk of cell phone load. 'Mobile tuning' of the third stage, that the application layer. Place in a large number of applications the phone accidental or intentional seizure event, it is caused by Android phones more and slow the core reason. Too many applications are keen to remain in Air Jordan 5 Retro the memory space, as well as a large number of debris left in the storage space, the culprit is trouble. This is why immediate cleanup type applications to Android phones becoming standard; Android system has seven types of processes are foreground processes, visible process, the main service, secondary services, background processes, content provider node, empty process, is not installed clean up type applications when an Android phone can only rely on the system default allocation mechanism to automatically adjust memory usage, as long as the application requests, most will be open as long as the process remains in memory of them, which was originally to allow users When re-activate these processes do not need to reload the original intention of saving time considerations, but Android does not expect fierce competition in the market will be driven by the application have a 'bad money drives out good money' trend, many developers for commercial purposes, do not need to be retained in the case of memory also find ways to make the application remains a potential running, one of the two said okay, but once more numerous, Anrdoid phone will frequently Caton and fever. In the world's largest Android phone users to clean up type applications 'Cheetah clean-master' for example, the type of its cleanup process, mainly on background processes, secondary service, content nodes and empty process: background process (Hidden) - The cheetah is the top priority is to clean up scanned and recognized master of the process, because most Android users will not use the application when switching back key to exit, but directly press the Home key, the former will apply to Nike Shoes enter the empty process (occupancy resources are relatively small), which will be retained as a background process (relatively larger footprint), especially when the games category App runs in the background, it will compete for resources with other App, and does not care that money is App not the user is using. According cheetah clean up master statistics, about 20% of the Common App also without running back to start networking, mainly Submit Product and user information, access to advertising, query whether the upgrade; secondary service (Secondary Server) - - For example, some enterprise suite, mail contacts, touch interface, many of these processes are the system comes with, some users will use, but some users may not use or have alternative applications, so the cheetah cleanup Masters The cleanup logic is to establish (divided into two categories recommend cleaning and depth cleanup) based on user behavior and authorization; content provider node (Content Provider) - This part of the process there is no program entity, just providing content to other applications, such as calendar supply node, mail supply nodes, etc., in addition to the memory resources, it also consumes network, it will also create an unnecessary burden to Android phones; empty process (Empty) - if it is through the back key to exit the application, the majority of Applications will be left in the Android phone's memory in an empty process that no data run, but history will record applications, almost no value, again, this part of the process to clean up content is a cheetah kill the master priority is also very high. In addition to excessive consumption of memory, Android phone is also easy to accumulate a lot of redundant data in storage, including the inability to uninstall the pre-installed applications, cache files, and use the remaining applications generated after unloading process, because Android itself does not provide management tools, even after the phone is connected to the computer the same as Windows file tree Jiabao, the user is difficult to independently determine which folders can be deleted, which folder is the prerequisite, would eventually cause the phone size space Yulai The more narrow circumstances. 'Mobile tuning' of the problem, they might bring back to increase the burden on the user's operation, the psychological pressure and even to conduct pressure, playing with the phone also did not forget to use Gesanchaiwu Cleanup feature, which compared with the iPhone 'distinctive' operating habits, but also Android phones always like reason a semi-finished or engineering machine. 9:08PM 07/21/15
