Despite the convenience of online shopping, there is still something about a beautifully designed brick and mortar shop that makes shopping a truly enjoyable experience. Inspired by that, The New Stand is a new concept that is dramatically changing shopping, whether it's an everyday convenience store or clothing. Working with the UM Project , the two are designing next wave, modular and ever-evolving diminutive retail spaces that make shopping easy and pleasant for the shopper. It merges digital and analog, where each store has multiple touch points, while the app offers entertainment and utility while shopping. The store also has a unique array of products—you can find everyday items but also unexpected technology that you don't normally see at a newsstand. Essentially, UM Project and The New Stand came together to create flexible shopping environments where the pieces are always moving.

6 seconds to go from 0-62mph and the fastest (the new turbo 1.4-litre) doing the same in 8.9 seconds. An automatic gearbox is available with the turbo 1.4-litre engine and the two more powerful diesels; choosing this costs around £1,000 and has a negligible effect on fuel economy. When it comes to the driving experience, the latest Hyundai i30 impresses and frustrates in equal measure. It’s genuinely hushed on the motorway, feeling like a car from the class above – much as the Astra and Golf do. Unlike the Astra and Golf, however, the i30 feels a little unsettled at times, mainly because the steering is too sensitive, requiring frequent corrections to keep the car on the straight and narrow. Image 2 of 22 Inside, the i30 is comfortable, aesthetically pleasing and feels well built: the dashboard design is conservative, sure, but it’s pleasant enough and overall material quality is good, save for one rather prominent piece of scratchy plastic.

CNN has quoted an unnamed Republican source saying that Puzder "may be bailing" because he's "not into the pounding he is taking" from those critical of his labor practices at CKE. Some of that pounding took place at an emotional public forum on Capitol Hill on January 10, where three individuals with experience working for Carl's Jr. restaurants told U.S. senators about routine incidents of wage theft and other abuses. Two days later, the Fight for $15 campaign helped organize protests against Puzder in more than a dozen cities. It's not hard to believe that the rumors about Puzder having second thoughts might be true. Given the level of imperial coddling he's grown accustomed to at CKE, such public scrutiny would no doubt be a bit unsettling. This Institute for Policy Studies analysis of Puzder's compensation data was first published in a Restaurant Opportunities Centers United report .

Often in our experience what people are looking for is just a validation of people saying we believe you were raped. Denise Clair today gave a short statement. She said: "I am pleased by today's verdict. "However I am bitterly disappointed that I was "so badly let down by the criminal justice system "and was forced to seek a remedy through the civil court." Tonight the Crown Office maintain there wasn't enough evidence in law to get a criminal conviction. Both clubs will not field the players until they read the full ruling.

He also discussed the heavy influence on international news from American, Israeli and other Western intelligence agencies. Ulfkotte described his experience saying “I’ve been a journalist for about 25 years and I was educated to lie, to betray and not to tell the truth to the public,” referring to his career in mainstream media. He also noted that he was “fed up” with the propaganda and said he was speaking out, despite admitting having heart trouble on television. I’ve had three heart attacks, I have no children, so if they want to bring me to court or to prison, so it’s worth for the truth. The interview only has 166,000 views on the official RT channel; however, it has likely been seen millions of times because the video has been uploaded by many other YouTube channels and Facebook pages. The interview is often shared as a detailed example of mainstream media’s disinformation campaigns.

I'm looking for a portable thingy to sit on the couch and design with. I would opt for the iPad with pencil but I'm looking at learning zbrush and the more I read, the more I'm thinking Surface Pro. However, I'm all up for suggestions as it's a pretty large drop for what is essentially a hobby... Battery life isn't a huge concern as it's mainly going to be used near an outlet. Processing is as Photoshop and similar is a must. If anyone has any experience in this area, please let me know... I really want to turn my hobby into a career I can leave the bank for!

Dungeness crab fisheries on the West Coastvalued at about $220 million annually—may face a strong downturn over the next 50 years. The acidification of the ocean expected as seawater absorbs increasing amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere will reverberate through the West Coast's marine food web in unexpected ways, say researchers. Dungeness crabs, for example, will likely suffer as their food sources decline. But pteropods and copepods, tiny marine organisms with shells that are vulnerable to acidification, will likely experience only a slight overall decline because they are prolific enough to offset much of the impact, finds the study published in Global Change Biology . Marine mammals and seabirds are less likely to be affected by ocean acidification, the study found. (Credit: NOAA) What stands out is that some groups you'd expect to do poorly don't necessarily do so badly—that's probably the most important takeaway here, says Kristin Marshall, lead author of the study who pursued the research as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Washington and NOAA Fisheries' Northwest Fisheries Science Center.

Greenpeace researcher Jesse Coleman added, The EPA's final report on impacts of fracking on groundwater has concluded what too many Americans already know from personal experience: Fracking has caused lasting harm to drinking water sources throughout the country. The most important findings from this study is that drilling, fracking, and the use of hazardous chemicals necessary to frack have caused groundwater contamination. This puts to rest the widely repeated lie that fracking is safe' and has never caused drinking water contamination. Source: Common Dreams

' We did all this research before figuring out that on-the-books wasn't financially possible for us--so after all that legwork, we couldn't agree on salary and the nanny took another job. "Now our daughter is starting daycare and I have to do the nanny search all over again. I'm here because this time, I want to do it right." I immediately understood Karen's experience, because it is typical of the way that most parents go about finding nannies: They feel their way through this most important process with only their gut instincts to guide them, which means they are essentially flying blind. Many, like Karen, approach the process backwards: they round up a random assortment of nannies referred to them by friends and friends-of-friends, interview the nannies first, decide which ones they like, and then try to figure out who can match their actual, logistical needs.

People with chronic pain conditions have an increased risk of cardiovascular illness and addiction to opioids or self-medication with alcohol. In an attempt to save us from ourselves, the CDC recently updated its guidelines on the prescription of painkillers ; this led to an increased suicide risk in some patients already at high risk. Yes, there is a need to take us more seriously. A white-savior YA novel where chronic pain is treated as a supernatural power is not going to accomplish that; it will harm us. My chronic pain caused me to miss the first two years of my daughter's life. Those memories have been lost in a haze of painkillers and cocktails of prescriptions that were meant to make me functional and only succeeded in robbing me of my life, my career, even my home. And now Veronic Roth has appropriated-for personal profit-my experience, her friends' experiences, the experiences of millions of women who would do anything to be able to return their "gift.

A surprising number of people experience a form of sensory cross wiring in which light flashes and visual movements are ‘heard’, research finds One in five people is affected by a synaesthesia-like phenomenon in which visual movements or flashes of light are “heard” as faint sounds, according to scientists. The findings suggest that far more people than initially thought experience some form of sensory cross-wiring – which could explain the appeal of flashing musical baby toys and strobed lighting at raves.

He groused, Well, when you were FDRs son and in business, you couldnt totally avoid all political conflicts. Trump announced at a January 11 press conference that he is turning over operation of his business to his sons, who will not be involved in his administration. However, he has named Ivankas husband, Jared Kushner, to a senior advisory role at the White House. This is tricky because of the 1967 Federal Anti-Nepotism Statute that was designed to prevent adding family members to federal payrolls. Even if Kushner is allowed to serve, Trump might want to look at the experience FDR had. Get your history fix in one place: sign up for the weekly TIME History newsletter James was the only one of the Roosevelt children to take a paid position with the government, joining the four-member White House secretariat that ran the West Wing in 1937.

For others constructs though, for your most cherished beliefs about things like climate change or vaccines or Republicans, instead of changing your mind in the face of challenging evidence or compelling counterarguments, you resist. Not only do you fight belief change for some things and not others, but if you successfully deflect such attacks, your challenged beliefs then grow stronger. The research shows that when a strong-yet-erroneous belief is challenged, yes, you might experience some temporary weakening of your convictions, some softening of your certainty, but most people rebound and not only reassert their original belief at its original strength, but go beyond that and dig in their heels, deepening their resolve over the long run. Psychologists call this the backfire effect , and this episode is the first of three shows exploring this well-documented and much-studied psychological phenomenon, one that you’ve likely encountered quite a bit lately.
