More so than any other major dance company, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater carries an aura of social, moral and even spiritual righteousness. It’s not just the dancers’ exquisite athleticism and peerless commitment that convey this and transfer such a rush to the audience. It’s also the artistic content, especially when it directly engages with human virtues. The obvious example is “Revelations,” the company’s closer that guarantees a standing ovation, as its gospel score and images of strength and fellowship build to a roar that engulfs you and lifts you, no matter how many times you’ve seen it. Each piece on the Ailey company’s opening program at the Kennedy Center Opera House had this effect. “Revelations,” of course, worked its spell at the evening’s end.

A few months ago, Apple admitted to slowing down iPhones as batteries age to prevent unexpected shutdowns. Now, the company is introducing a new battery management system in its iOS 11.3 beta 2 to help users better preserve their devices. The feature, only available to iPhones 6 and later, helps users monitor and predict the battery’s performance and health. Located in the settings tab under “Battery,” it reveals the maximum capacity and peak performance capability of the phone. While the maximum capacity measures the battery’s full charge ability compared to when it was new, the peak performance capability reveals how the battery’s degradation is affecting the phone’s peak execution. In December, Apple issued an apology over the iPhone battery speed, saying there has been “a lot of misunderstanding” about the issue. “We have never — and would never — do anything to … [Read more...] about What is the iPhone battery health tool?
