While it's not the most groundbreak app, I can create a one-tap order with the Chipotle Apple Watch app and have my meal ready to go while I'm on the treadmill at the gym next door. It's as efficient as it is calorie rich. The best part is, I get the skip the always massive line. Facebook Messenger on Apple Watch got a late start, but it finally lets you respond to those pressing messages to friends and family without opening up the sioled-off app on your phone or website on a computer. You can initiate and reply with a thumbs up (which I see as kind of curt and rude) or dictate a reply. Sending Facebook's ugly smiley face or your current location can be done with the press of one or two taps too. No, there's still no WhatsApps for Apple Watch, but this is the next best thing from Facebook. What's better than controlling the lights throughout your entire household with your iPhone? Doing it with a flick your your wrist with an Apple Watch.

Of course, it's interesting that a number of those voters actually voted for Donald Trump, it seems, now. I think, in many ways, at the press conference yesterday was about addressing some of those criticisms. If you look at things like the movement of Black Lives Matter, the fact that more black people are involved in gun crime, the disparity in earnings in household income, the unemployment level - actually, it must be very frustrating for Obama.

Too bad for him, he lost, and now is losing big time. For four days in a row this Christmas season, wind turbines generated more electricity in Scotland than it needed. In the month of December, wind provided about half of Scotland's electricity. Scotland had had a goal of 50% of its electricity from renewables of all sorts by the end of 2015, but got to 60%. By now, about 3/5s of electricity consumption is met by renewables. Scottish green activists are now pressing to get household and business heating off of natural gas and onto the electric grid, so that expanding renewables can replace hydrocarbons across the board. It just got in 70 new electric trains , which can be run off renewables. But note that these trains were bought from Japan, not from the United States. That is the sort of opportunity cost American workers will increasingly bear under Trump.

(PARIS) WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange retreated from his pledge to accept extradition to the U.S. if Chelsea Manning was granted clemency, arguing Wednesday via his lawyers that what he was really asking for was an immediate pardon for the ex-Army analyst. It was only last week that Assange raised eyebrows across the internet when he appeared to offer himself up as a kind of swap for Manning, the former private convicted of leaking the hundreds of thousands of documents that made WikiLeaks a household name. If Obama grants Manning clemency Assange will agree to US extradition despite clear unconstitutionality of DoJ case, WikiLeaks said, apparently referring to the U.S. Department of Justice's continuing investigation into the radical transparency website. But when Obama granted clemency to Manning on Tuesday, setting a May release date that lops almost 30 years off her sentence, Assange's lawyers said it wasn't enough.

KUALA LUMPUR: There should be an allocation mechanism by the government for buyers of Projek Perumahan 1Malaysia (PR1MA) homes following the new income eligibility which has been increased from RM10,000 to RM15,000. The House Buyers Association (HBA) said as more people from the middle income group are now eligible to own PR1MA homes, the core objective of the programmes, which is to provide affordable homes to the lower income earners should be safeguarded. HBA Secretary-General Chang Kim Loong said the increase of household income eligibility to RM15,000 is appropriate given the increase in cost of living. However, he told Bernama that this new rule will also give an advantage, in terms of a better chance to get a unit, to the middle income earners over those from the low income group. "Buyers with RM15,000 income per month should not be competing against buyers who earn only RM5,000 per month.

President Barack Obama said his daughters were “disappointed” by President-elect Donald Trump’s 2016 election win but that they have not become jaded because of it. “What we’vetried to teach them is resilience and we’ve tried to teach them hope,” Obama said Wednesday at his final press conference as president, “and that the only thing that is the end of the world is the end of the world.” He said neither Sasha nor Malia plans to have a political career but that his daughtersdont mope” and that they remain hopeful — a reoccurring theme both in his presidential campaigns and his farewell addresses. “They paid attention to what their mom said during the campaign and believed it because it’s consistent with what we’ve tried to teach them in our household and what I’ve tried to model as a father with their mom and what we’ve asked them to expect from future boyfriends or spouses,” Obama said.

Before making a decision about which company to join, imagine yourself at a cocktail party/game night, talking to your peers or other people whose opinion matters to you. If you can, don't imagine it, but actually do it -- invite a few people over. Tell each of them about your top 2-3 choices in 2 sentences: 1) what the company does (if not a household name) and 2) what your role would be and what you'd do there . "Initech builds wheelchairs you can control with your brain. I'd be their first data scientist and I'll work on route prediction for faster, smoother control." Now, the standard advice is to ask for feedback and see what people think and what questions they ask. That's good advice. However, what's even more important is to pay attention how you feel when talking about it. Do you feel like a puppy? Is your brain wagging its imaginary tail? Are you so excited you could barely contain yourself, even if you're not usually "the type"? That's a good sign.

You know, if your mom and dad don't brag on you, you know you got problems. (LAUGHTER) But man, my daughters are something. And and they just surprise and enchant and impress me more and more every single day as they grow up. And, so these days when we talk, we talk as parent to child, but also we learn from them. And, I think it was really interesting to see how Malia and Sasha reacted. They were disappointed. They paid attention to what their mom said during the campaign and believed it because it's consistent with what we have tried to teach them in our household and what I've tried to model as a father with their mom and what we've asked them to expect from future boyfriends or spouses. But what we've also tried to teach them is resilience and we've tried to teach them hope and that the only thing that is the end of the world is the end of the world.

5 billion to Americas GDP. Though Obama will no longer set national policy, he can still play an essential role. For kidsespecially those who grow up, as he did, in a single-parent householdhe is the ultimate role model; for parents, teachers and policymakers, he will remain a relentless champion for change. He has always been focused on creating opportunity for the next generation, especially for children who grow up in disadvantaged communities. Thats where his heart is. I have every confidence that as a former president, he will continue to inspire the young people of this country and will stay engaged with schools and students for the rest of his life. In the many years of service that lie ahead for Barack Obama, there will be a lot of adults clamoring for his time and attention. But its our kidsthe many whose worlds will expand and whose futures will be brighter as a result of his effortswho will be the ones to write his legacy.
