2021 super bowl lv moved from los angeles to tampa


chicago -- the 2021 super bowl has been moved by the nfl from los angeles to tampa. five days after the opening of the $2.6 billion football stadium in inglewood, california was pushed back to 2020 because of construction delays caused by los angeles' uncommonly wet winter, league owners approved the move tuesday. owners voted unanimously to give the february 2021 game to tampa and have the rams' and chargers' new home host the 2022 super bowl. the nfl would have needed to waive a rule that prohibits a super bowl being played at a stadium before it has hosted two full regular seasons. instead, it chose to move the game to tampa, runner-up to los angeles in the bidding. "our focus in this process is this building should host multiple super bowls over many generations, and we need to make su

hands-on with ricoh's compact pentax kp: digital p og hy review


ricoh has taken the w s off it's newest dslr, the aps-c format kp. resembling a mini pentax k-1, and inheriting some of the same features, the kp is a more compact, modernized version of the k-3 ii.its price and all we've been told point to it being an k-3 successor but the company says it doesn't replace it. whether this is to avoid devaluing remaining k-3 ii stocks or because it hopes to introduce a higher-end sister model is unclear.we got our hands on a pre-production sample recently, and we've prepared a quick product tour.
