    In a sense, it‘s both. Surrealism is like the cinema in that way; sometimes you‘re happy just to be with your own thoughts or watching something beautiful on the screen without caring about what happens next and when I want my work to feel dreamlike, those are always good feelings.

    The word surrealist is used so loosely these days and I‘m not sure many people appreciate the origin of it. The word comes from a French playwright named Alfred Jarry who wrote something calledThe Supermale in 1896, which is where he first used the term surrealist to describe his characters. It‘s really quite funny; it‘s a farce in which the characters act like they‘re living in their own dreams, no matter how absurd things get.

    It was really quite revolutionary for its time and it‘s what ultimately led to the Dadaists of Europe as well as Surrealism proper.

    The word surreal can either be used in a positive or negative way. It‘s the same as a dream, which can be either good or bad and everything in between. I think it really depends on how people choose to use it.

    I think it‘s a beautiful word, sounding like something that has been plucked from the sky. A surrealist is someone who wants to create art with as much truthfulness as they can muster and in doing so, immerse themselves in their own dreams.

    Daryl Katz did get rich after purchasing the Canadian rights of a drugstore chain called Medicine Shoppe for $300,000 in 1991. The next year he founded Katz Group of Companies by opening the first Medicine Shoppe store in Canada. The company’s revenue grew after he bought the Rexall drugstore chain in 1996.

    At the time of purchase, Rexall was a small business with just a few stores in its drugstore chain. Katz started opening new stores of both Medicine Shoppe and Rexall and as of 1998, over 30 Medicine Shoppe & 80 Rexall stores were part of the Katz Group.

    Daryl kept expanding the company as years passed by. He bought another drugstore chain 143-Store Pharma Plus for a whopping $100 million from Oshawa Group. This was Katz’s first biggest deal at that time. After seeing a lot of growth in the Canadian market, Katz eyed the U.S market & purchased U.S based Snyders drug store chain in 1999.

    Daryl Katz made most of his wealth by buying drugstore chains during his early foray into the business during the 1990s. For example, the Medicine Shoppe chain which he bought for $300,000 in 1991 later brought him $1.2 Billion in 2012 when he sold it to McKesson Corporation. This is how Daryl Katz got rich in a period of 29 years. His current net worth is $3.5 Billion (12th richest person in Canada).

    Yes. You can deposit a check into your Chime account using the mobile banking app. All you have to do is simply download & install Chime’s official app on your iPhone or Android smartphone. Also, make sure to sign on the back of the check that you want to deposit into your spending account.

    Follow these steps –

    1. Launch the Chime app
    2. Log into your Chime Account
    3. Take a look at the bottom of the screen
    4. Choose Move Money option
    5. Select Mobile Check Deposit
    6. Enter the amount that is specified on the check
    7. As per the instructions, take front & back images
    8. Choose the account in which money has to be deposited
    9. You will be asked to review the details entered
    10. Review & complete the check deposit process

    Make sure to capture the pictures of the check in an area with enough brightness as Chime may decline your check deposit if the images are blurry. Also, it is important that you choose the correct account (Spending Account or Savings Account). You will have two choices, you can either deposit the money in your Savings Account or Spending Account. But, note that you cannot use the deposited amount for transactions if that’s a savings account.

    How long does it take for Chime mobile check deposit?

    Chime usually deposits the check amount in your account as soon as it clears the process. It mostly depends on the originating bank as Chime bank won’t hold any type of deposits. So, it’s better to wait up to a period of 7 days and if still, the money doesn’t appear in your account, you can contact chime @ 844-244-6363.

    How can I deposit my stimulus check using the Chime mobile app?

    To deposit your IRS check (any government-related check like unemployment check or stimulus check), open Chime app >> Sign In to your account >> Tap on the Move Money option >> Then, choose Mobile Check Deposit option >> Tap on U.S Treasury >> Sign on the back of the check >> Write “For deposit to Chime only” under your signature >> Capture the front and back of your check >> Choose the account in which money needs to be deposited >> Review all the details entered by you >> Done!

    How long does Chime take to deposit stimulus checks?

    Chime deposits your stimulus check amount as soon as the government processes the payment. Being an online bank, Chime claims that it won’t hold any money and so, the check gets deposited as soon as the government releases your stimulus payment. Some members may get the amount deposited within a few hours while some have to wait up to a week.

    If you didn’t get the amount deposited in your Chime spending account even after a week, you should talk to a Chime representative about the same and he/she will check the status of your payment. You can call 844-244-6363 between 6 AM and 10 PM CST or send an email to [email protected].

    Why can’t I deposit my stimulus check in the Chime mobile app?

    Chime allows almost everyone to deposit their stimulus checks via its mobile banking app. However, to be eligible for Chime mobile check deposits, you will have to be a frequent user of Chime’s debit card and spending account. That said, there should be a good history of transactions attached to your account.

    So, the option will be available to all those who have a great Chime bank account history. If this is not the case with you, any of these could be a reason for your mobile check deposit declination –

    1. You didn’t sign on the back of your check
    2. You didn’t mention “For deposit to Chime only”
    3. You took blurry pictures of your check
    4. You entered the wrong amount
    5. Your name didn’t match with your Chime’s account

     

    These are a few reasons Chime might have declined your check deposit via the mobile banking app.

    You cannot watch Netflix on your Peloton bike’s touchscreen. The Peloton’s software that’s installed on the device is not compatible with third-party apps and so you will not be able to download & install apps like Netflix and Hulu. It’s really good if Peloton makes this feature available as soon as possible as many people love to watch Netflix while working out.

    However, there’s a way you can watch Netflix while riding your Peloton. The touchscreen device comes equipped with Android web browser and you can make use of it to browse anything including YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, etc. There’s no guarantee that trick works and if anything goes wrong with your device, Peloton may not provide you with its Warranty assistance as this is not part of its service.

    To watch Youtube or Netflix on your Peloton Bike screen –

    1. Tap on the Settings icon
    2. Choose Device Settings
    3. Go to About Tablet
    4. Tap on Legal Information
    5. Then, choose System Webview Licenses
    6. Tap on any Homepage link
    7. The Stock Android web browser will open
    8. Now, browse Youtube or Netflix or Hulu, etc.

     

    I think this may work for you but however, with constant software updates from Peloton, the browser may not let you access Netflix or any other third-party website or app on that screen.

    A Peloton bike is worth the cost if you have the habit of exercising daily and looking for some motivation. Its sleek design makes it suitable for almost any person and the greatest thing about it is its membership that gives you access to several types of classes that train you to shape your body in the perfect way.

    The cost of a normal Peloton bike is $1,895 which is highly expensive plus the monthly all-access membership subscription cost of $39 makes it look like a big investment. But, the best part is the fact that you will get motivated by watching the leaderboard on the 22-inch screen that sits in front of you.

    You will get to watch content created by famous personalities and the screen’s library comes with hundreds of virtual videos which get you an experience of pedaling through countryside, on the coastlines & streets, etc. So, I can say that a Peloton bike is something that you get to see in only a few exclusive gyms.

    However, the price of the bike is something that we need to think of. So, buy a Peloton bike if you think everyone in your family is gonna use it on a daily basis. If you are thinking of buying this bike only for you and if you are on a budget, you may try checking out other bikes in the market.

    The bike that was launched by Peloton recently (Peloton Bike+) is priced heavily @ $2,495 (without all-access membership). This bike comes with a 24-inch HD Touchscreen whereas the previous model equips a 22-inch screen. The old model equips only 2 rear speakers whereas the plus bike will have 2 front-facing and 2 rear-facing speakers.

    It’s better to buy the original Peloton Bike (old model) as it comes with essential features and so, I think the Peloton Bike+ model is not worth the money. The old model is worth the money.

    4FRNT is a good Ski brand as it is one of the only few skiing companies started by a professional skier. 4FRNT was founded in 2002 in Utah, USA by Matt Sterbenz who was a passionate skier. Moreover, the Skis that are produced under this brand are designed by professional skiers like Ben Hoiness, Jake Doan, Eric Hjorleifson, Thayne Rich, Stinius Skjotskift, Kelly Meckenzie, etc.

    Another great thing about 4FRNT Skis is its factory direct policy which negates distributors, sales agents, and retail stores in its selling strategy. So, the Skis you order from 4FRNT official store will be delivered to you straight from the factory and so, they are priced low compared to the Skis of other brands.

    The team at 4FRNT designs all its Ski models in its Whiteroom which serves as a production and prototype facility. Before a product from 4FRNT goes for sale, it gets tested by Engineers, designers, and Athletes so that the product lives up to the customer’s expectations.

    You can find three types of Ski collection on the company’s official store: MSP Collection, Eric Hjorleifson Collection, and Freeride Collection. The Powder Skis offered by 4FRNT are also good as they are designed to glide smoothly even on the steepest and deepest terrains. A Powder Ski like RENEGADE (Signature edition) at 4FRNT will cost you $729.
