Nikola Jokic Wins #KiaMVP Most Valuable Player! | 2020-21 NBA Season

The end of the 2020 – 2021 NBA season is scheduled for May 16 and the MVP race is still underway. The announcement for the NBA MVP normally takes one month after the end of the regular season or just before the conference finals.

When is NBA MVP announced 2021

2021 NBA MVP announcement date was on the 8th of June. Nuggets star Nikola Jokic wins the MVP award. The last center to win the MVP award was Shaquille O’Neal in 1999-2000

Who is most likely to win MVP NBA 2021?

NBA’s Most Valuable Player for the 2021 year judging by the media poll and betting sites is Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic aka Joker. Jokic is standing way above the rest of the other NBA stars like Joel Embiid, Giannis Antetokounmpo, StephenCurry, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Luka Doncic, Damian Lillard, Chris Paul, Julius Randle, Kyrie Irving, James Harden, etc.

According to ESPN, these three players are top finalists for the MVP award.

Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic, Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid, and Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry are the finalists for the 2021 NBA Most Valuable Player award.

Joker finished first in all important metrics. Offensive Win Shares, Player Efficiency Rating (PER), Box Plus-Minus, Value Over Replacement Player, and Win Shares. He also played in every NBA game and has more minutes than any other contender for the MVP trophy. Jokic is the third player in NBA history to finish a season ranked in the top five in total points (third), rebounds (fifth), and assists (third). I have to mention that Nikola was the number 41 pick in the second round of the 2014 draft selected by the Nuggets, he could be the lowest draft pick ever to win MVP.


Who is the MVP of the NBA 2021?

My pick for 2021 NBA MVP award is Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic. All I can say:

"Nikola Jokic is like water vapor. The driving force of the team, invisible and elusive"

Serbian native Nikola Jokic, who has not missed a single game this season, collected 90 of the 101 first-place votes cast in ESPN’s latest MVP straw poll. The Joker is almost averaging a triple-double. He has 60 double-doubles and 16 triple-doubles in the 2020-21 NBA regular season.

Why should Jokic win MVP this season? I can suggest that you read this article by Matt Moore with a lot of good arguments about Joker being the front runner. Moore: Making The Definitive MVP Case For Denver Nuggets Star Nikola Jokić

The MVP votes are weighted with a point system that breaks down like this:

  • 1st place vote: 10 pts
  • 2nd place vote: 7 pts

  • 4th place vote: 3 pts

Dark season 4? (Netflix)

Will there be Dark season 4 Netflix series?

Popular German sci-fi series Dark was always meant to be a trilogy. Well you never know, this show is so popular it wouldn’t surprise me if they make the 4th season. There is a lot of material for season 4 of Dark and I wouldn’t mind it all.

But everything about the Dark series revolves around the number 3, three time periods at the beginning and three worlds in the end.

Plus, Baran bo Odar, one of the show’s co-creators announced on Instagram back in May 2019 about a Dark future.

Baran bo Odar stated: “And it‘s official! We are working on Dark Season 3. It is the final cycle of this great journey.”

Also, Odar and his co-creator Jantje Friese announced the following:.

 “We will offer answers to the questions that our viewers have been asking and help untangle the story through time.

“It will be hard for us to walk away from those characters we have really grown fond of, but the beginning is the end, and the end is the beginning.”

Well that was back in 2019, I still believe/hoping there will be a Dark season 4 in near future, fingers crossed.

Dark Season 3 Family Tree, Who is Who?

I know it is quite confusing to catch up who is who on Dark.

Here below is the image/map explaining all important relationships in season 1, 2 and season 3.

Aleksej Pokusevski Girlfriend

Aleksej Pokusevski is a basketball player who plays for the NBA team Oklahoma City Thunder. Plays power forward position and stands 7 feet in height and weighing 190 pounds. Only 19 years of age with the huge potentials of becoming a future NBA All-Star player.

Born in Belgrade, Serbia, Pokuševski played for the Greek club, Olympiacos Piraeus in his early basketball years where he met his girlfriend Ioanna and they’ve been dating since.

Telling by her Instagram profile, Ioanna is a big believer, she is from Athens, Greece, she studies Political Science and enjoys traveling and beaches.

Pokushevski followed the draft with the family, and with him was his girlfriend, an attractive Greek woman, Ioanna Laou, who also posted a greeting on her Instagram profile.

Ioanna wrote: My man succeeded and was drafted from 17th place. I love you with all my heart, your dream has just begun.

Aleksej Pokusevski Stats

Aleksej Pokusevski had the best night vs Charlotte Hornets since he joined NBA as a rookie this 20/21 season, He scored for OKC Thunder 25 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assist with the seven made three-pointers a career-high. And the last game of the season against the LA Clippers he shows all of his potential scoring season-high 29 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assist with the six made three-pointers.

Pokusevski Stats for the 2020- 2021 NBA rookie season

  • Points 8.2
  • Rebounds 4.7
  • Assits 2.2
  • 3P% 28.0
  • FG% 34.1
  • FT% 73.8
  • PER 6.18

Why Pokusevski is gonna make NBA ALL-Stars team!

He’s like a quicker, more athletic Nikola Jokic and Dirk Nowitzki, but I think he will become more like Kevin Durant in the years to come. The thing that stands out the most to me surprisingly is his shiftiness with the dribble and understanding of how to attack what defenses give him. Poku is gonna be a problem for any big players trying to guard him. The one-footed jumpers off the dribble that is just amazing, nice court vision too. Obviously, he’s tall and can shoot but he actually plays more like a guard. He really can pass the ball reminds me of his countryman Nikola Jokic. His three-point shot is getting better each day. Poku when you watch his game he plays so casually meanwhile destroying everyone while being so casual. The kid just turned 19 years!

Aleksej Pokusevski potentials are unlimited. Poku is just an all-around basketball player who happens to be 7 feet tall.

If he gets his weight up and becomes more skilled in the post he will be extremely hard to guard.

Thumbs up for OKC organization for allowing him to come to the NBA league right away and gain the necessary NBA experience instead of holding off for a year. The experience he’s getting now will put him ahead of the curb so he’ll come back much better next year than expected. 

 Me on Pokusevski:
"Poku plays so casually, like playing street basketball, meanwhile destroying everyone while being so casual." 

Poku Career Highlights And Awards

  • 2017 Jordan Brand Classic 

He played for Serbian national team in 2018 FIBA Under-17 World Cup, in Argentina. and in 2019 FIBA Under-18 European Championship, in Volos, Greece.

Is Pokusevski NBA unicorn? Well time will tell, meanwhile i’m rooting for him.

Jamf Daemon on Mac, How to uninstall it

Here is what I did to remove/uninstall Jamf Daemon from the Mac. My Macbook pro starts to overheat after only five minutes of any work, so I did a little digging. Naturally, I Google-searched for a solution.

First I tried to establish what is taking my Mac CPU usage and I find-out in Activity Monitor that the Jamf Daemon was responsible for the high CPU usage, and unfortunately I could not kill this process. To find Activity Monitor on a Mac, go to your Applications folder > Utilities folder, and then double-click the Activity Monitor icon.

After more digging, I found you can uninstall/remove Jamf Daemon using Mac’s Terminal application. To find Terminal application on a Mac, go to your Applications folder > Utilities folder, and then double-click the Terminal icon.

How to remove Jamf Daemon on Mac

To remove all Jamf-related components run the following command on the Terminal application: Be sure to backup your computer with Time Machine before these steps below:

First, Change to “bin” directory/folder on your Terminal by typing

CD /usr/local/bin/

Once you are in the “bin” directory. Then type in:

sudo jamf removeFramework

Enter

Or change to this “sbin” directory/folder, if the first didn’t work, and do the same as above

First, Change to “sbin” directory/folder on your Terminal by typing

CD /usr/sbin/

Once you are in the “bin” directory. Then type in:

sudo jamf removeFramework

Enter

Double check in Activity Monitor to see if you were able to remove Jamf Daemon.

It worked for me!

SQLiteStudio Error on Mac

How to fix this installation error on Mac: “Can’t be opened because the identity of the developer cannot be confirmed.”

After I tried to open the SQLiteStudio installation file I got this error message: “Can’t be opened because the identity of the developer cannot be confirmed.”

I google-searched for a solution but whatever I found suggested I need to run recovery mode which is complicated and not that safe. You can easily make your Mac not working again.

But I found a much easier solution, and it is very simple!

This is how you can install SQLiteStudio 3.2.1 on Mac OS Catalina:

  1. Find the installation file called SQLiteStudio

2. On Mac keyboard select Control then Right Click on SQLiteStudio installation file and then select Open.

3. After that a new pop-up window is opened with this message: macOS cannot verify the developer of “SQLiteStudio”. Are you sure you want to open it?. This time is different than the one with an error. It has an Open option. Click on Open and voila, now you are able to install SQLiteStudio.

This is it! Now you can continue with a SQLiteStudio installation.

Good Luck!

Patti Page – Drina (Little Soldier Boy) Lyrics

Drina (Little Soldier Boy) song by Patti Page – Lyrics

Drina, little wooden soldier boy.
Playmate for your little drummer boy.
He’ll grow big and tall.
And leave you for a living doll.
He’ll be glad.
But you’ll never know it.
For if you could show it,
You’d be sad.

Drina, life is just a big parade.
Marching to a wedding serenade.
Lovers when in bloom, Become a happy bride and groom.
How they dance,
Full of gay romance,
While wooden hearts are left without a chance.

Music, music, swinging and dancing.
Hopping to the polka band.
Hoopla, hoopla, happy is the bride,
When everybody kisses her hand.

Singing and dancing, drinking to the future.
Wishing happiness and joy. 
Someday, Drina, maybe you’ll be happy,
With another little drummer boy.

Lovers when in bloom,
Become a happy bride and groom.
How they dance, Full of gay romance,
While wooden hearts are left without a chance.

Music, music, swinging and dancing.
Hopping to the polka band.
Hoopla, hoopla, happy is the bride,
When everybody kisses her on the hand.

Singing and dancing, drinking to the future.
Wishing happiness and joy.
Someday, Drina, maybe you’ll be happy,
With another little drummer boy.

FlightHub phone number, FlightHub flight cancellation info

This is from my personal experience with the Flighthub. For some reason, I couldn’t find the Flighthub phone number. It took me a while to find it and here it is:

Flighthub contact number

Call Toll Free 1-800900-1431.

Call Us toll-free 24/7 1-800900-1431.

First I tried at their site “Our Support Hub Page” this link support.flighthub.ca and so many other pages but no luck. I’m not sure why is that, but my guess is since the COVID-19 outbreak a lot of people are trying to reach Flighthub in order to speak to Flighthub representatives regarding their flights, holidays, flight cancellation, airfares, etc.

Most likely they are getting tons of calls a day and they just decided not to share phone numbers at the Flighthub.ca website.

I called regarding a COVID-19 flight cancellation and took me a while to speak to the Flighthub representative.

Here is a part of the itinerary:

“The airline has issued a travel advisory for your booking. Please click here to check cancellation options due to the major changes to your itinerary. If you are still willing to retain your flight and would like to explore other options available to you, please click here.”

Itinerary on the website

There are two options:

You have two options for canceling your booking

  1. Refund (RECOMMENDED). You can cancel your airfare flight with a full refund and that depends on which company you are flying with, minus $35 a handling fee for each ticket. “You may be entitled to a refund. Some airlines are allowing tickets to be refunded even if you purchased non-refundable tickets due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Refunds are only available for un-flown flights. When you request a refund with us, we will cancel your booking and will handle fulfilling your request with the airline on your behalf. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, it could take up to 18 weeks to receive a refund to the original form of payment you used when you purchased the itinerary. Please note that not all airlines are offering refunds.”
  2. Future Travel Credit (NOT RECOMMENDED). “Most airlines are waiving their penalty fees to cancel your flight and receive travel credits. This allows you to cancel now and book new flights at a later date once you are ready to travel again. New flights must be within the airline’s requirements, which usually consist of a rebooking deadline or travel-must-commence-by date. These are typically 1 year after the date of purchase, but could be extended due to COVID-19 outbreak.”

Canceling your booking options

UPDATED: I was able to get a full refund after 6-7 weeks, it took some time on the phone but I got the full refund. Kudos to them at least I got my money back.
