The feature is unfortunately

The feature is unfortunately a bit confusing. You’ll see the Super Heart icon while watching broadcasts. Tapping it opens the Super Heart store, but first you’ll have to buy a bunch of virtual “coins,” starting at $0.99 with packages ranging up to $100 Managed Private Network
. Then you can buy three different kinds of Super Hearts with these coins, ranging from cheaper basic hearts covered in plus signs, to a bubbly and sparkly mid-range heart, to the most expensive ones that give off explosions and feature your face in the center. You can then send these hearts by tapping across any broadcasts you watch. For example, $0.99 gets you enough coins to send roughly 30 of the basic Super Hearts.

Sadly, the feature could exclude lower-income viewers as there’s no way to earn coins, unlike in many games that sell virtual currency but also let users grind to earn it free.

When users send the Super Hearts they’ve purchased, they’ll show up more prominently on the broadcast than free hearts that users can already send. The people who send the most Super Hearts during a broadcast are shown on a leaderboard, which other viewers can watch in envy or broadcasters can check to see who to shower with love on camera. For now, you can only buy and send Super Hearts from Periscope, though you’ll see them if you’re watching a Periscope broadcast via Twitter Interactive Table .

For every Super Heart a broadcaster receives, its coin value is added to their “star” count that appears on their profile. Once broadcasters have $175 worth of stars (around 185,000 stars) accrued, they can apply to join Periscope’s Super Broadcaster program. If admitted, they can cash out their star balance for real money via ACH transfer at the end of each month. If broadcasters don’t want to squeeze money out of their fans, they can turn off receiving Super Hearts.

Regarding the fee structure and Twitter’s revenue share, Periscope’s Sara Haider tells TechCrunch:

“We created Super Hearts for qualified broadcasters to monetize their content, and our objective is to learn from and iterate on this program to help them realize the most earning potential. After standard fees from in-app purchases and payment processing, broadcasters will receive around 70% of the remaining value. Changes in fees and foreign exchange fluctuations means that the effective percentage can vary.”

You might feel like this is all a bit baffling, with coins buying hearts that earn stars that are redeemed for money. That’s because it is. Users and broadcasters may be hesitant about the feature because it’s so hard to understand how much you’re paying or how much your favorite creator is getting wine buff.

But for some mega-fans, the ability to show up prominently in the comments and leaderboard of their favorite broadcaster, or even get thanked by name, could be enough for them to wade through the virtual currency mathematics necessary.

一望無垠的草原让人心矿神意!

我更喜歡一望無垠的草原。油亮的草,不僅洗乾鞋底的灰塵,而且讓你踩到別人後,自己會滑倒。小小的我,只能跟在大人身後走,怕被深處的草扎到下巴。草叢中會偶爾蹦出一隻癩蛤蟆,或者是“三特拉”,其結果是,我被直接嚇哭。滿山的野山杏,多到麻袋也裝不完,曾經能吃1斤山杏的我,現在回想一下,都會酸得渾身哆嗦。
展開草原的畫卷,首先入眼的婚姻介紹所,一定是告F,而且是滿眼告F。但僅僅有告F,那草原就是不完整的。最浪漫的妝點,便是那些白的、紅的、粉的、黃的、藍的、酷I、橙紅的、絳紫的、靛藍的形態各異的野花,真正是奼紫嫣紅,這是我的摯愛。有含羞低頭的薩日朗、圍抱成團的火柴花(我們孩提時代的叫法,其實是狼毒花)、昂首向陽的小鳥花、盡展嬌豔的野罌粟、香氣幽微的鈴鐺花… …還有很多叫不上名字的花花草草,星羅棋布地舖滿整片草原。
喝著山間汩汩清泉里湧出的潺潺泉水,極目遠眺,尋找“風吹草動”後的蘑繭氈B如果發現了,那今天就是大豐收了,肥美鮮嫩的草原白蘑,必須收入囊中。
那時候,沒有見過精心堆砌修繕過的敖包,但因為牧民對“騰格里”(天神)的尊崇以及草原游牧的生活習慣,使一個簡單的石堆,都能完整保存若干年。每每看見,我會盡量搜尋幾塊形狀大小合適的石頭,放在上面,算是入鄉隨俗。
  令人望而生畏的,是牧民殺羊。草原上的獵手刀真是很準,准保一刀斃命,而且還不流血。扒皮割肉的現場味兒真的很羶,羶到摀鼻子;掏出內臟時,還能看見肚子裡的青草。簡單清理後便扔進鍋裡,灶下燒著牛糞,灶上的大鐵鍋就咕嘟著……在諸如老爸等一類“吃貨”心中,此餐堪稱天下第一美食。
我眼見的威尼斯旅行,應該算是純正的手扒羊肉了。肉是用洗臉盆般大小的鋁盆裝的,而且冒著熱氣,沒有太小的塊頭。表面看起來,肉嫩油香,其實這肉最多8分熟。因為能看見撕開一塊肉裡帶的血絲。在我看來,真是難吃得很,可是桌上的食客,此刻似乎都顧不得身份、風度,雙手齊上,呲牙咧嘴、搖頭晃腦地撕著骨頭上的肉。我想,這隻羊的上輩子,一定是人民的階級敵人,今生來贖罪了。在給人們飽嚐美味的同時,也給人們提供了酣暢淋漓的情緒釋放。酒足肉飽後,桌上出現了羊肉粥和羊雜湯−−原湯化原食。
因為我不喜歡吃羊肉,所以不喜歡那個味道,但是很喜歡切盤腸的那個小刀。這個工具,也在度假村興起後才發現的,很精緻。那時候,我的想法是用它來削鉛筆,那是極好的。
那時每次去草原,因為目的不是羊,所以,最多吃上兩塊奶豆腐,上桌後最多吃點白菜、黃瓜什麼的,連奶茶都不喜歡,但牛奶是一定要喝的。那時候康泰旅行團,如果知道市場上的牛奶摻水,會慢慢演變成水摻牛奶,我一定每次都把自己的胃裝滿,就像《人在囧途》裡的牛耿。烏日末和炒米也不喜歡,因為小時候不喜歡吃小米,可能讓炒米也跟著受了牽連。
