There has always been a time when you take a photo on your phone and there's an unwanted object in the way. Well Google is working on new technology where objects get removed from the photo instantly but keep other objects in the photo intact. The technology is similar to Photoshop's “content aware” and “healing brush” functions but Google's could be more efficient and faster. The GIF that was presented with the news shows a perfect example of how things would work. With photography being such a common art in today's world, there's no doubt that Google is doing something right. The easy it is to take and edit photos the easier it is to post them to social media. Hopefully this technology cane release with the quickness.

Over the weekend there was an incredible attempt by Nike to run a full marathon in under two hours. Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge, gold-medalist at the Rio Olympics and the best marathoner in the world, missed the 2 hour mark by only 25 seconds. Missing only by 25 seconds is still a great time but it's still not the world record. Today Nike has announced the release of the Nike VaporFly Elite which is the brand's most advanced running shoe to date. The new sneaker has been developed strictly for the world record attempt. The only problem with the sneaker is the fact that it will never be for sale but you can win yourself a pair. The shoe was only built for the record attempt and exists only in three men’s sizes: US8, US9 and US10. Peep the rules below on how to participate in the contest:
“First, download the Nike+ Run Club app. Then, run a global 5k with us for Just Do It. Sunday on May 7th or 14th (or both). That’s it. You’ll be entered into a drawing to win a free pair of Vaporfly Elites. This is your chance to own the fastest shoes money can’t buy. So mark your calendars, set a reminder or two, and we’ll see you on Sunday.”

30 year old running back Marshawn Lynch has reached an agreement with the Oakland Raiders. Lynch has decided to come out of retirement and play for his hometown NFL team. Now even though Lynch & The Raiders have reached an agreement, the Seattle Seahawks still have the rights to the running back. This means that a trade will have to take place where Lynch will end up playing for Oakland. This is huge for the Raiders because they waived RB Latavius Murray so adding Lynch fills up a needed spot on the roster. The current running backs for Oakland are Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington but they aren't as big as Lynch. With all three backs in rotation, others teams are going to have to adjust accordingly. There will undoubtedly be a huge sale in Lynch jerseys as pretty much every Oakland fan wants one. I might even cop one. Great move for Oakland.
