Simone Biles beats out Gabby Douglas, advances to represent Team USA

The U.S. women’s gymnastic team dominated the qualifying round on day 2 of the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

On Sunday night, Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, Madison Kocian, and Laurie Hernandez made their country proud, but it was Biles who truly outshone the competition. She posted top scores in three of the four rotations -- floor exercise, vault and balance beam. Biles scored 62.366 to win by more than 1.7 points.

This is somewhat sad news for Douglas, whose hope to become the first American woman to win back-to-back golds in the all-around has ended as Biles’ star continues to shine brighter and brighter.

There is a rule in the Olympics that stipulates each country can only send two athletes through to the final round of a sport, even if all of its athletes receive the top scores.

At this year’s games, those two athletes in the women’s all-around gymnastics category representing the United States will be Biles and Raisman, who edged out Douglas by just .476.

But Douglas is taking the news in stride.

"I feel like the two-per-country rule is fine," the London 2012 Olympic gold medalist said. "I'm feeling pretty confident, and I'm rejoicing now. It's been an amazing experience so far. I would have loved to go back and defend my title, but you know what? It's been an amazing ride. I can't complain."

Biles’ vault set her apart from the competition Sunday night, earning her an outstanding score of 16.050.

About Trent:

Trent Harmon holds the reigning title as American Idol. The Season XV victor originally hails from East Mississippi and immersed himself in music from an early age. From singing “Amazing Grace” with his family to starring in various musicals in college, Trent credits life on his family’s farm as a major influence on his music career. Less than one week after taking the title during the final season of American Idol, Trent entered the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, earning him a “hot shot debut” with coronation song “Falling," which was written by Idol judge Keith Urban along with celebrated songwriters Dallas Davidson and Brett James. Already in the studio, the 25-year-old musician is eager to begin recording his self-described “Country-soul” album and recently released his debut single “There’s A Girl” on FOX & Friends’ Summer Concert Series. Critics raved week-after-week following each of Trent’s “vocally gifted” (LA Times) performances as he covered hits by Justin Timberlake, Sia, Parsan James, Percy Sledge and more.

Apple patent blocks iPhones from recording at concerts

Apple was awarded a U.S. patent in June for a system that can force iPhones into disabling video-recording functions at concert venues.

The system uses infrared signals to send messages to the smartphones to force them to shut down video recording capabilities. Apple's patent illustration shows a phone at a concert with the words "recording disabled" on screen. 

Various artists have been outspoken about fans filming their shows, with many claiming that it spoils the experience for other fans.

During a show this summer, Adele publicly told a fan who was filming the performance: "You can enjoy it in real life, rather than through your camera ... I'd really like you to enjoy my show because there's lots of people outside that couldn't come in."

It's not known whether Apple plans to put the patent into use.

Yondr is another company with a mission to eliminate cellphone distractions at concerts.

The company creates "phone-free spaces" at events where attendees must seal their cellphones in one of the company's lockable pouches. The pouch stays locked inside the phone-free zone but unlocks once you leave it.

"If you haven't been to a phone-free show, you just don't know what you're missing. There's something about living in real life that can’t be replicated," Yondr founder Graham Dugoni told The Washington Post.

About Old Dominion:

 

 Blending old-fashioned country charm, lyrical wit and rock n’ roll grit into radio-friendly hook-heavy pop nuggets, Old Dominion have emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands in country music.Their gut-punch of a new self-titled EP, which Rolling Stone Country says is dashed with “fuzzy guitars, catchy licks and even a little rap” is highlighted by the back porch smack of undeniable single “Break Up With Him” and the bruising “Shut Me Up,” and is the product of the five-piece band, which includes singer Matthew Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi, multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer Whit Sellers. They’ve spent seven years honing their craft, each making a name for themselves in Nashville by penning songs for the likes of Keith Urban and Luke Bryan. Now it’s nothing less than the country rock outfit’s defining moment.
