Devonport: A town that has been rebuilt; a neighbourhood which has seen death and destruction; a community torn apart and glued back together again. But just how much has the area changed? SARAH WADDINGTON looks back to discover more In 2008, Devonport was one of the poorest neighbourhoods in the South West. Before the millennium regeneration, more than 75 per cent of homes in the town were social housing. The buildings, mostly flats, were constructed after the Second World War, when bombs...

Great casting - Jennifer Grey! - some brilliant nods to '80s films, a short run time means this is a series you can eat up in one neon-fuelled sitting. Seasons on Amazon Prime: 2 Sneaky Pete's plot maybe a little cliche - a con man assumes the identity of someone else to try and make a new break in the world - but Giovanni Ribisi is superb as Marius, the titular character and there's plenty of intrigue to keep you glued to this new Amazon Original. Interestingly, the show is co-created by Bryan Cranston which makes him the streaming king, given he's done so well with Breaking Bad on Netflix. Don't expect Sneaky Pete to be as intense as Breaking Bad - it's a crime caper, yes, but it doesn't take itself too seriously. Seemingly always vying for the top spot of Best Recently Finished Drama (we may have made up that award) with Breaking Bad, Sons Of Anarchy is a long brooding menace of a show that deserves your attention.

5 degrees. The switchingwindow’ is between approximately 78 and 84mph, depending on how much yaw is detected at the time, but in practice the transition is seamless. All you’re aware of from behind the wheel is much sharper front-end bite with maybe a hint of neutral oversteer that never develops into full-blown oversteer on turn in – a massive step in the right direction for the Aventador. And then at high speed it feels pretty much glued at both ends, with far less steering input required to get it to turn-in, plus a lovely sense of control on the throttle mid-corner. And because the car is so much better balanced under power across all speeds, this has allowed the engineers to send much more torque to the rear axle at any given time. Which has the effect of making the S feel like a rear-wheel-drive car most of the time, and a very well set up rear-wheel-drive car at that.

[Bithead942]'s ten-year-old niece is a huge Star Wars fan, and also a violinist. Which of course has led her to learn to play some of the music from the film franchise, and then to ask her uncle to make her violin bow light up like a lightsaber. His solution might seem fairly straightforward at first sight, simply attach a strip of DotStar addressable LEDs to a bow and drive them from an Arduino Pro Mini to gain the required animation of a saber power-up. But of course, there's another dimension to this project. Not only does the bow have to do its lightsaber trick, it also has to be a playable bow. The electronics must not impede the musician by being too heavy or intrusive, but the result must have enough power in reserve to keep the lights burning for the duration of a performance. After experimentation with AAA cells and CR2032s the power requirement was satisfied by a tiny Li-po cell attached to the top of the end of the bow with industrial Velcro, and the LED strip was glued and further secured using tiny rubber bands of the type used by orthodontists.

Photo by Aleya Lanteigne “There is a great art to installing laminate, so the material looks beautiful,” explains Professor Matthew Hebert. Ashley Andersen, one of the students, describes, “Once my partner and I got all the sides glued on the cube, when it came to routing the edges flush, it was a lot harder than I had anticipated simply because I compared this experience to the times in the past that I have routed wood veneer edges. The laminate is thicker and while it is stronger than wood veneer, it is also brittle. It also was difficult making sure we didnt accidently shave off the decorative face of the other edges of the laminated sides of the cubes. And yet, laminate is pretty forgiving in a lot of ways. I especially found the spray adhesive glue to be my favorite to work with simply because it really fascinated me on how it would adhere the piece of laminate flat and be so smooth.

Then on the case I first peeled the foam off the front cover then CNC cut some patterns on the front backed with painted mod mesh for some enhanced front airflow for the radiator to be placed in the front of the case. The next mod was a magnetic power supply shroud made of laser cut acrylic for the front of the case. I used 1/8" red for the base and 1/16" black on top to fit flush right behind the tempered glass. The Top layer caps the magnets and allow them to be glued in place. After that I installed the radiator, and made a custom grill with 2 layers of laser cut acrylic glued together. Moving right along with the watercooling I made 2 of my favorite things to make, water manifolds! I went with the glued style this time because of time constraints and I didn't want to worry about possible o-ring leaks or anything. I pocketed out the base which was .

I remember exactly where I was on the night of November 4, 2008 . It was a Virginia strip mall restaurant, where a group of organizers who had come from around the country to help people get to the polls on election day. Like many Americans, my eyes were glued to the television screen as I watched Barack Obama take the stage in Chicago. It was a thrilling moment, all the more so because he wasnt just another elected official, born into a political family. He was one of us. As a community organizer with the Developing Communities Project in Chicago in the late 1980s, a young Obama had organized with local residents to improve their lives and neighborhoods. The experience informed his campaign for president. In the months leading up to the election, he had campaigned on the idea that the power of our democracy lies in the hands of the people.

The business model of the old media agency was built on buying and trading media and thats what has glued the system together. Many are fighting hard to keep that cemented in place, and the current malaise is being exacerbated by the need for agencies to make money through their trading functions . But, clients are wising up to the savings guarantees that agencies have made over the past few years, and as they wake up to bot fraud, arbitrage and agency-owned inventory, clients are no longer settling for the illusion of value. The model isnt dead, but the patient is extremely sick. Clients will take all of their media buying back in-house We have certainly seen some of this happening, especially with digital media, and particularly with programmatic. But, I think this has less to do with perceived impropriety and more to do with data management.

These ideas coalesce into one of this year's most remarkable entries in the genre and is well-deserving its own shot in the spotlight as well as a Game of the Year nomination. This absurdly faithful horror experience definitely isn't another day in the Corps Isolation is the game that made the Alien scary again. We've run into H.R. Giger's eyeless, monstrosity in so many dodgy spin-offs over the years that the basic design has lost much of its capacity for terror. Creative Assembly's interpretation stands apart in a couple of ways. One: it can't be killed by conventional means, obliging you to spend much of the game hiding in lockers with one eye glued to your motion tracker. Two: it's horribly smart, responding to your avoidance tactics as a predator would rather than plodding along a pre-programmed path. Add in the space station environments, which are modelled with obsessive exactness on the film's sets, and you have a franchise-defining title.

There have been only a handful of gadgets in my life that, upon their arrival, fundamentally altered how I use technology in my life. The Amazon Echo has been one of those products. I've long been a believer in the promise of hands-free computing. The basic concept is promising: Voice control promises the ability to engage with computers while still going about our business as normal. Over the past few years, us humans have become increasingly glued to our screens, even while we're out and about. I believe voice control will soon offer the same level of functionality and benefits without the need to bury our faces in our various displays. Read more: The ultimate guide to the Amazon Echo Today's biggest technology companies are already laying the building blocks towards that future. Those firms already focused on voice-only interfaces will have a big head start, because that kind of computing requires a total rethink on how we interact with our devices.

So is meditation. Last week I was feeling discouraged about how difficult it can be to meet new people. I found myself having a very whiny inner dialogue: It's so isolating working at home. I could go to a coffee shop but people are glued to their computers. No one is friendly anymore. Being friendly is just too hard. Blah blah blah. Luckily I recognized that there was a request buried under all those complaints, and I had not bothered to articulate it. So I said out loud, "I would like an encouraging encounter. Something to restore my faith and make me feel connected." The next day I was ordering my coffee at Starbucks and the barista squinted at me. "You look so familiar," he said. I couldn't place him, but then he practically shouted my name and I remembered; twelve years ago he owned a store that I frequented, and we had daily, friendly contact.

It's pretty pricey at $449.99. But I have to say that the Swagtron T3 is much better than their previous models. The wheels are beefier, the ride is stable, and the motor is peppier. Why does the Swagtron T3 make me feel old? Tonight, I decided to live on the wild side and switched from “Standard” to “Advancedmode on the app. When I did, I got this friendly warning: “Extremely high injury risk”?! There was a time when I’d completely ignore a message like that or treat it as a challenge. But these days, with my back issues, bad knees and fear of everything around me, I have to be careful. And even though the T3 will reach a top speed of only 8 MPH, it’s plenty fast when you’re standing upright with your hands glued to your sides. Which brings me to this dude in Dubai who is surely riding in Advanced mode. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKrHDwXeBOU What the S#!T is that? And how did I get so old?! PRO/CON COMBINATION The SWAGTRON T3 can also play music via Blootooth while you ride.

Oh, but what content! It's the wealth of eye-popping imagery and exhaustive commentary that will keep anyone with an interest in space glued to their iPhone, devouring items by the dozen. The Images' section is particularly lovely, with a huge range of photos. There are pictures of star clusters that look unreal, moody shots of planets and moons, and snaps of engineers doing clever things. These can all be rated, run as a slideshow, shared, or saved locally. Elsewhere, you get a ton of informative and educational videos, guides to missions, news, and, slightly weirdly, access to NASA's Twitter feed. And if you fancy turning your brain off for a bit, there's a live feed from the ISS, the blue marble that is Earth slowly rolling underneath.

20, Reines speculates. “When’s the last time someone said to him, you have to do X and he bought into it?” he says. “I think the presidency is going to be a lot more ‘you have to’ than he realizes.” Reines has not been able to give up his Trump obsession, and was glued to the news conference last week, where he thinks the president-elect skillfully dominated the media. “You guys are bringing knives to a gunfight,” the famously combative Reines says of the press corps covering Trump, joking that he should stand in to train the media on how to grill the president-elect. Reines cringed at the convoluted, multipart questions that allowed Trump to avoid a straight answer. The media’s only hope of pushing Trump where he doesnt want to go is working together to ask follow-up questions, he says. “He knows that whack-a-mole works.” *** If the confident Clinton campaign made a mistake in its assessment of Trump, it was in underestimating how the simplicity of his message was breaking through to win the war, even if Clinton was winning every debate battle.

Aaron Hendel, Gail Malone, Grand Mufti Hassan and Janice Kortkamp Brandon Turbeville Activist Post BrandonTurbeville.com While most Americans are force fed propaganda and misinformation about virtually every country outside their own borders (including the country in which they live) Syria has been a particular target of the corporate press. In fact, so much propaganda and lies have been spread regarding Syria and the crisis unfolding there that the average person glued to Fake News outlets like CNN, FOX, and MSNBC could scarcely recite one fact about the country correctly. One such propaganda narrative is the lie that the Syrian crisis is sectarian in nature and that the country was plagued by religious tension and division before the war began. Neither of these claims were the case and, five years into the NATO imperialist war effort, Syrians are as united as they have ever been.

Kids and technology. It seems to be a love-hate relationship for parents. For me these days it's more of a hate relationship. Everywhere I go I am seeing more kids plugged into technology, glued to a screen, walking around like zombies. This frustrates me and makes me sad at the same time. I wish we could rewind to the days when Atari was considered ground-breaking technology and the thought of having a cell phone seemed like something only the Jetsons could achieve. But, the reality is many kids are obsessed with their various devices to the point they don't know how to have a conversation or use their imagination. Market research found that children ages five to sixteen spend six and a half hours in front of a screen everyday! If you take into consideration the fact that they sleep for at least eight hours if not more, that means there's less than ten hours left in the day.
