What to Watch 89th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

The annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is as much a part of the holiday tradition for many as turkey and stuffing. This year’s parade features performances by dozens of stars, among them Mariah Carey, Shawn Mendes, Jordin Sparks, Andy Grammer, Jake Owen, Train, and the Muppets. The famed spectacle’s lineup: 7 giant character balloons, 24 novelty-ornament balloons, balloonicles, and trycaloons, 27 floats, 1,100 cheerleaders and dancers, more than 1,000 clowns, 12 marching bands, and of course, the one-and-only Santa Claus.

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade airs on NBC from 9 a.m. to noon on Thursday, November 26.


For many, Thanksgiving has become synonymous with football. This year the NFL is hosting a triple-header, music to the ears of gridiron fans who can’t get enough of the game. First up, the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Detroit Lions in Detroit. Next, the Carolina Panthers will battle the Dallas Cowboys in Texas. And the prime-time game features a showdown between the NFL’s long-standing rivals, the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers, in Wisconsin. The Packers will honor one of their all-time greats, retired quarterback Brett Favre, during the game. For those still craving football, be sure to catch the undefeated New England Patriots take on the Broncos in Denver on Sunday, November 29, at 8:30 p.m.

The Eagles-Lions game airs on FOX at 12:30 p.m. The Panthers-Cowboys game is on CBS at 4:30 p.m. The Bears-Packers game kicks off at 8:30 p.m. on NBC. The New England Patriots–Denver Broncos game airs on NBC on Sunday, November 29. Kickoff is at 8:30 p.m.

Class Distinctions: Dutch Painting in the Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer at the Museum of Fine Arts

This groundbreaking show offers a whole new approach to 17th-century Dutch painting. Featuring 75 paintings—including masterpieces never before available for public viewing in the United States—the exhibition illustrates the ways paintings from the period represent the various socioeconomic groups of the new Dutch Republic. In the show are portraits, seascapes, landscapes, and genre scenes. Among the artists are Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Pieter de Hooch. The work is arranged according to 17th-century ideas about class distinctions.

This fascinating show pays tribute to the legacy of the small experimental college that opened in 1933 in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. In its short history, the school exerted an enormous influence on postwar cultural life in America. The exhibition traces the role of faculty artists such as John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Robert Motherwell, Elaine de Kooning, Willem de Kooning, and Robert Rauschenberg. Black Mountain, which closed in 1957, is among the first institutions to emphasize the relationship among art, democracy, and globalism. On view are individual works by more than 90 artists affiliated with Black Mountain College as faculty and students.

Admission is $15 for adults, $13 for seniors, $10 for students, and free for children 17 and under, museum members, and on Thursdays from 5 to 9 p.m. Find directions here.

ELF the Broadway Musical at Citi Performing Arts Center Wang Theatre

Based on the 2003 Hollywood comedy starring Will Ferrell, this musical stage version debuted on Broadway in 2010, the tale of Buddy, an orphan who accidentally crawls into Santa’s bag as an infant and is transported back to the North Pole, where he is raised by elves. Santa gives Buddy his blessing to travel to New York City to find his birth father and discover his real identity. Along the way, he helps New Yorkers remember the true meaning of Christmas.

This weekend’s performances are Friday, November 27, and Saturday, November 28, at 2 and 7 p.m., and on Sunday, November 29, at 1 and 6 p.m. No performances on Thanksgiving. Ticket prices range from $30 to $125 and can be purchased online here or by calling the box office at 617-772-1116. Take an MBTA Green Line trolley to Boylston or an Orange Line train to Chinatown.

Boston Ballet’s The Nutcracker

Boston Ballet’s The Nutcracker is at the Boston Opera House, 539 Washington St., Boston. Purchase tickets online here or call the box office at 617-695-6955. Take any MBTA Green Line train to Park Street.

On Saturday, November 28, 150 tubas will serenade onlookers at Faneuil Hall during the Boston Tuba Christmas Concert from 2 to 3 p.m; free and open to the public.

Take any MBTA Green Line trolley to Park Street or an Orange Line train to State Street. 

Where to Shop   

For some, the day after Thanksgiving has become as much of a tradition as Thanksgiving. Many get up at the crack of dawn Friday (or even late Thursday night) and head to their local shopping center to get some of the best deals, from televisions to shoes.

Want to do all your holiday shopping in one location? You’ll make the people on your list happy if you head to the Shops at the Prudential Center, home to nearly three dozen stores, including LOFT, Vineyard Vines, Lululemon, Barnes & Noble, Lord & Taylor, and Saks Fifth Avenue. If you’re looking for Santa, you’ll find him at the Belvidere Arcade through Christmas Eve.

The Shops at the Prudential Center, 800 Boylston St., Boston, are open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. (opening at 9 a.m. on Friday, November 27). Santa is available Sunday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Closed Thanksgiving Day.

Adjacent to the Prudential shops is Copley Place, perhaps Boston’s toniest mall. Featuring nearly 75 stores, Copley Place sports J.Crew, Gap, and Banana Republic, as well as Williams Sonoma. But the emphasis here is really on luxury goods: Tiffany, Eileen Fisher, Emporio Armani, Boss, Coach, and Neiman Marcus.

Newbury Street

If malls aren’t your thing, head over to Newbury Street, Boston’s premier shopping district, where you can stroll along eight blocks lined with art galleries, salons, restaurants, and shops ranging from the affordable (Forever 21, bebe, and H&M) to the expensive (Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry, and Chanel). Many of the stores are offering special sales on Friday, November 27 (Black Friday), and Saturday, November 28 (Small Business Saturday). Find a full list of Newbury Street stores here.

Take any MBTA Green Line trolley to the Hynes Convention Center, Copley, or Arlington stops.

This Cambridge mall is sure to be crowded on Black Friday, perhaps even at midnight on Thanksgiving Day, when it opens its doors to dedicated bargain seekers. There are more than 130 restaurants and stores, including Macy’s, Best Buy, H&M, Francesca’s, Forever 21, and Sephora. Be prepared for long lines and crowds of people. Find a list of stores having sales here and special college student discounts, with a valid college ID, here.

5 Things To Do To Improve Your Wsl Experience

Microsoft’s Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is a game-changer that provides the best of both worlds (Windows and Linux). However, to get the best out of WSL, you can’t just rely on how it comes out of the box. This tutorial goes over five things that can make your WSL experience even better.

We are using WSL 2 and Ubuntu throughout this article, but you can apply these tips to any distro.

1. Installing Zsh

To install Zsh, run:






With Zsh installed, you can install frameworks like Oh My Zsh to manage Zsh.

Installing Oh My Zsh

Oh My Zsh is an open-source, community-driven framework that lets you manage themes and plugins for Zsh in a more convenient way.

You can install Oh My Zsh using curl and git, which come preinstalled with most of the WSL distros. If you don’t have them installed, you can always install them using sudo apt install curl git.

Now that we have cURL and Git installed, run:

Installing Powerline Fonts for Zsh

You might have noticed some weird symbols showing on the terminal. This is because we don’t have the appropriate fonts (Powerline) installed.

Open PowerShell on Windows, and from your Windows home directory, run:

Go to the fonts directory:



Run in your PowerShell. This will install all the necessary fonts.

You can customize your WSL terminal from here. Here, we’re selecting the “Font” tab and using “DejaVu Sans Mono for Powerline” fonts, but you can use any Powerline font you want. Press “OK” after selecting your font.

Customizing Zsh

Oh My Zsh comes with so many preinstalled themes, and we can use them by configuring our “~/.zshrc” file.

In the WSL distro’s terminal, run:





Look for the line ZSH_THEME="robbyrussell" and replace it with ZSH_THEME="half-life".

Press Ctrl + X to exit from the Nano text editor. This will ask if you want to save the file.

Press Y and Enter to save the file. Restart your WSL terminal by closing and reopening it. You will see that the new theme has taken place.

You can find the names of all the preinstalled themes of Oh My Zsh here.

2. Configuring WSL to Limit Its CPU and Memory Usage

WSL can be quite resource hungry and a memory hog, especially when you are using applications like Docker, which can take up a lot of your usable memory. The problem is, sometimes it doesn’t unallocate your memory, even if it doesn’t need that extra memory anymore. This can result in your entire PC slowing down and even lagging. You can easily fix this issue by limiting how much memory and how many CPU cores WSL can access.

Create a new file in your Windows home directory called “.wslconfig.” In my case, the directory is “C:Usersmunna.”

Paste these lines to the file and save it:







To let these changes take effect, shut down all the WSL instances. Do that by running wsl --shutdown from PowerShell.

You can verify your new configuration for WSL using NeoFetch. Run neofetch from your WSL terminal.

You can also configure your WSL for things like limiting the swap usage, turning on console debugging, and using a custom kernel. You can check out Microsoft’s official docs for all the configurable options.

3. Using Windows Git Credential Manager on WSL

If you have used Git in WSL, you might have already noticed that WSL keeps asking for your Git credentials every time you push something on GitHub.

To fix this, you can use your Windows Git credential manager for WSL and have the same credentials across Windows and WSL.

To set your WSL’s Git to use Windows Git credential manager, run the following command in your WSL terminal:

git config



"/mnt/c/Program Files/Git/mingw64/libexec/git-core/git-credential-manager.exe"

4. Using a VNC Server to Use GUI Apps on WSL

Although WSLg can run GUI apps, it’s only limited to Windows 11 and Windows 10 insider versions. Also, running a desktop environment is a mess in WSLg. A VNC server can come in handy if you want to access your Linux distros remotely.

Install TightVNC by running:






Now we need a desktop environment for our Linux distro. Let’s install Xfce, which is a lightweight Linux distribution:




xfce4 xfce4-goodies

This will prompt you with two options for your display manager. We’re using lightdm here, but you can choose either one. Select “Ok” after choosing your preferred display manager.

Run TightVNC using the command vncserver. You will be asked for a password for your VNC server. Enter a password that is at least eight digits. When prompted to verify, just re-enter your password. You will be asked if you would like to enter a view-only password. Press N, as view-only passwords will only let you view the Linux distribution and not interact with it.

We need to make sure that whenever we start the server, the desktop environment also starts:

With a VNC server installed and running, we can use a VNC server to access it.

Download VNC viewer from here.

Enter your address in the VNC viewer’s address bar. It should be in ip:port format.

If you don’t already have the address, run hostname -I in your WSL terminal. This will output your current IP address. Here, it is

To find an accessible port for your TightVNC server, you can use the netstat command, which is a part of the net-tools package. To install net-tools, run:






We can use the netstat command. Run:




From the output, copy the port number under the “Local Address” column. Here, it is showing under the first “Local Address” column. The port number starts after : and is 5912. If you face issues like VNC Viewer taking too long to connect, you can retry with a different port from the “Local Address” column.

If netstat doesn’t show any port number, that means your TightVNC server is not running. You can always start your VNC server by running vncserver from the WSL terminal.

Enter the VNC server’s address in the VNC viewer’s address bar. (Here, it is

It will ask you for your VNC server’s password. Enter the password and press “OK.”

You can use the WSL’s Linux distro in a GUI environment and install any GUI app in your Linux distro and use it through the VNC viewer.

Using a Script to Start the VNC Server

The VNC server creates a new display session every time you run vncserver. We can create a script to avoid that.

To create a new script file, run:




and add these lines:


















X1 vncserver



and save the file.

This will kill the first display session and remove the files associated with the session.

Make the file executable by running:


u+x ~


From now on you can run “~/” to start your VNC server at the first display session.

5. Transferring Files from Windows to WSL Easily Using File Explorer

Although you can transfer files from Windows to WSL, having a GUI environment for copying and moving your files comes in handy. You can use the built-in File Explorer of Windows for transferring your files using a graphical interface.

Open File Explorer, and in the address bar type \wsl$, then press Enter.

This will open your WSL distros’ directories.

Open your installed distro’s Home folder and find a folder with your WSL distro’s username.

You can transfer files between WSL and Windows from the File Explorer’s Quick access menu.

Frequently Asked Questions Can I use an IDE on WSL using a VNC server?

Yes, you can use IDE in your Linux distribution using WSL. Although the performance is not the same as native apps, it’s quite usable.

Am I limited to the preinstalled themes of Oh My Zsh?

No. Besides the preinstalled themes, you can also install third-party themes for Zsh.

Do I have to configure WSL for each of my Linux distros?

No. Any configuration changes to WSL will be applied to all of your installed Linux distros.

Earthchat, Veni, Hologo And Other Apps To Check Out This Weekend

This week’s edition of our Apps of the Week roundup features an auto-translating chat app, AI software that can help you decide where to eat and an educational app that uses AR to help demonstrate complex topics. And as always, we’ve selected two great new games for you to check out.


EarthChat is an instant messaging and social media app that offers real-time translation in over 100 languages. The neat thing is, the translations occur automatically—no need for you to copy, paste or tap. Regardless of what language the other person is talking in, all you will ever see is English (or whatever language you set it to). Now I’m not sure how good the app’s translations are compared to, say a Google Translate, but at the very least it should allow you to communicate in real time with folks you wouldn’t normally understand at all.

Download for free


Veni eliminates the “where to eat” conundrum among you and your friends. Using artificial intelligence, the app suggests 3 restaurants based on everyone’s preferences. Then you can make your pick out of the 3 with a simple tap. You can browse restaurants, sorted by price and location, view photos and even chat with your friends, all within the app. I know it seems silly to add another app to your Home screen for something as niche as dining out with friends, but I think the weekend is the perfect time to check it out.

Download for free


This is one of the more interesting uses of AR I’ve seen to date. Hologo meshes education with immersive experiences to help you better learn and understand complex concepts. Imagine exploring a volcano in mixed and augmented reality, or an animal cell, or human systems like digestive and respiratory. The app appears to be geared towards teachers and students, but honestly I think anyone looking to learn new things will find it useful. You do have to register (for some reason) to use the app, but it doesn’t look too complicated.

Download for free


On the eve of discovering a mathematical cure for cancer, your mentor, Professor Claire Liddy, is murdered. Fortunately, before she died, the Professor was able to erase a lot of her formula, saving the cure from falling into the wrong hands. But now it’s up to you to fill back in the missing parts of the equation. As you can probably guess, there’s a comedic angle here that might not suit everyone. But with an 80s action movie-inspired storyline, a green screen with real actors, and a variety of puzzle types and mechanics, this is easily one of the most unique puzzlers I’ve ever come across.

Rotten Escape

If you prefer something that requires a little less time/though, check out Rotten Escape. You must help Little Tom and his friends—tomatoes that have been deemed too rotten to stay in the supermarket—escape the garbage dump. Naturally, the only way to do that is travel up, so you find yourself in an endless arcade game in which you must tap 3 areas of your screen to help Tom and his friends navigate various levels. There are over 20 characters to play with, one-handed gameplay and Game Center achievements.

Statuscal, Vibes, Gubadoo, And Other Apps To Check Out This Weekend

We made it to another weekend everyone, congrats! This means it’s time for another Apps of the Week roundup, and we have some great picks for you this week. There’s an inventive status updater, a new take on mindfulness, and an expense app designed specifically for home renovation projects. And as always, we’ve selected a fun new game for you to check out.


Here’s an interesting and inventive app. It’s called StatusCal, and its goal is to keep you from being disrupted by co-workers or housemates, while you’re busy. It allows you to set a Do Not Disturb message that can be displayed on an iPad or other device for others to see. It works like this: you set your availability using your iPhone or Apple Watch to something like, “on a conference call,” and that message gets displayed to an iPad that is sitting on your desk, facing your co-workers, or hanging outside your home office. It’s not going to be for everyone, obviously, but it could certainly come in handy for some.

Download for free

(Not Boring) Vibes

Tell me this doesn’t sound at least kind of awesome. (Not Boring) Vibes is an app, which is “based on science and inspired by video games,” that creates personalized music designed to improve your focus, intensity, and concentrate. The app knows your wake and sleep times, and generates background music based on your activity throughout the day to help you wake up, focus at work, relax, and sleep deeper. It’s easy to use, too — one tap to open and automatically play exactly what music you need for the moment. It also supports immersive spatial audio, widgets, has a timer, and more. Even if you’ve poo-poo’ed mindfulness apps in the past, this one seems worth checking out.

Download for free


Gubadoo. That’s fun to say. Gubadoo. Anyway, this app is super niche, but could really come in handy for folks renovating their homes or taking on a significant construction project. It’s a custom finance tracker, with tailored categories like build materials, labor, furniture, and more. You can record all of your expenses, track your spending, receive reports, and analyze your financial situation in real-time. Save time and eliminate overpaying, with Gubadoo. And just think, at the end of a major renovation, you can pretend you were on HGTV’s Love or it or List it show, “We have one more listing to show you, and that’s your own.”

Incapable? Yes, Artificial Intelligence Can’t Do These Things!

There are many things that Artificial Intelligence can’t do for humankind or the society Use ‘Common sense’ to Make Decisions in Real-time

A major aspect where artificial intelligence falls behind humans is in using common sense. Although robots are capable of doing what man is incapable of, such as labor intense jobs and working in dangerous circumstances, artificial intelligence is still no competition to humans’ intellect. Machines can even make wise decisions and help humans make the right choice, but when things get twisted, robots entangle in confusion. For example, if we say ‘A woman went shopping. She bought a beautiful dress. She left the place with a big smile.’ If asked what the woman shopped, a human would instantly say ‘a beautiful dress.’ But answering these simple questions is very difficult for artificial intelligence.

Humans can automatically grasp the concept in real-time, but machines are not wise enough to use their common sense and answer in such situations. Besides, humans have lived through times. So, we know what is necessary for a circumstance and what is not. But machines are just fed with data that were run on humans, which can be complicated. Robots can’t get things straight through those datasets and acting to situations in real-time is real trouble for artificial intelligence.

Care for Human Beings

Humans are gifted with a sixth sense that makes us different from other living beings. However, despite the improvements that AI researchers have made, robots are still incapable of caring for humans or fellow robots and machines. For example, the Australian government uses a chatbot called ‘Nadia’ to help people access the National Disability Insurance Scheme. Although Nadia can interpret their speech and expressions with 85% accuracy, she can’t abstract the emotions they carry. With zero emotional intelligence, Nadia just looks at their sad face and carries out the process. Therefore, all the responses by Nadia are rational from a perspective. Whether the caller yells or cries or talks sweetly, her response would be similar to all of them.

This is where robots highly differ from humans. Even AI researchers agree that people will never forget how you made them feel in a critical situation and today’s artificial intelligence can’t compete with reality on that scale.

Do Multiple Tasks at the Same Time

We must’ve come across the ideology that women are capable of doing multiple tasks at the same time very well. When men are already incapable of doing the same at women’s level, machines are nothing. AI researchers have trained robots to solve specific problems. But the ability to perform different tasks at a time is still in progress. Recently, Google tried its hand at making robots do multiple tasks. It implied its Google Assistant to do the routines. But the result was not very positive. Although artificial intelligence was capable of doing a number of things, it only played a selective role after receiving a command. So it is safe to say that today’s robots can’t take notes from a business chart, attend a phone call and answer the queries, and arrange things for the upcoming meeting, all at the same time.

Adobe Post, Grayout, Swingdo, And More Apps To Check Out This Weekend

I know most of you are probably still reeling from the Star Wars VII launch this weekend (I am literally writing this article while sitting in line, waiting to see it), but the world still continues and the App Store is still open. If you aren’t spending every waking moment watching the sequel to the most popular sci-fi movie in the world (or if you are sitting in line, wondering if there is anything new to play with while you wait), we’ve got a list of apps and games that you should check out.

Frank the Dillo

This app is described as miniature golf/platformer with an Arabian Nights theme. The goal is to get the adorable armadillo into his hole in as few moves as possible. It’s not quite as easy as the average put-put golf game. Frank has to navigate such obstacles as ramps, jumps, and traps. Plus, you’ll want to collect all those shiny gems on your way home. To get Frank rolling, drag your finger behind the ball and slide to aim. Then, let go to shoot. The trick is getting him to move without over shooting. The controls feature a percentage meter to help you out. This game is available for $0.99.

You may have noticed by now that I’m a big fan of the GIF, especially if there are cats involved. This app has all the typical features of a GIF maker, but adds the element of animation overlays to make things even more interesting. You can use photos, video clips, and other forms of media to combine one GIF. Then, choose from the included animation masks, effects, and stickers to turn it into a wild time. You can even search for content and import from Giphy. If you don’t already have content on your device, you can always create it from scratch using the in-app camera to record video or grab pics using burst mode. This app is available for free.

Have you ever had trouble finding the words to express yourself? Imagine if you were in an accident that affected your ability to speak. That is exactly what has happened in this game. You wake up in a hospital after an accident, unable to properly speak to anyone, even though you can understand them. Every time someone asks you a question a series of jumbled words appear on the screen and you have to figure out which of them to use to respond. Only when you pick the correct word or series of words will you be able to continue. This game is available for $2.99.


I often find myself buried in tasks and I can’t figure out what to tackle first, especially around the holidays. This app uses machine learning to organize your to-do list based on what time it is now, and what you have coming up. It also tracks your email and lets you know if you have forgotten to respond to an important message. Instead of displaying your tasks as a long, overwhelming list, your to-dos are organized into comfortable looking time cards around your calendar, for a less stressful visual experience. It works with Gmail, iCloud, Yahoo, Outlook, and Twitter. This app is available for free.
