Fitbit is one of the worlds most successful and recognizable fitness tracker brand, and for good reason. The company makes good products, which in turn means that finding Fitbit deals a rather rare occurrence. Thankfully, they do exist and weve had our collective noses to the ground in search of the lowest prices for Fitbits range of wearables. If youre in need of a healthy change, start here to find your match. One of Fitbit's latest wearables is an update to one of its oldest: the Fitbit Flex . The new and improved Fitbit Flex 2 doesn't do a whole lot to change the familiar look, but the innards have been refreshed to make this the one worth buying over the original. It's smaller, more fashionable, and most importantly, it's water-resistant, which is a first for Fitbit. The lack of a screen might be a bother for some, but if you can adjust, this fitness tracker compensates by being remarkably low-profile.

We have made other country's rich while the wealth, strength and confidence of our country has dissipated... [T]he wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their arms and redistributed all across the world. In sentence after sentence, Trump's address underscored a world view grounded by the belief that U.S. foreign and domestic policy is, and must, operate as a zero-sum game: either the world wins or American wins. It cannot be both. Read More: Full Transcript of Trump's Inauguration Speech Trump's solution to the dystopia he so powerfully describes is protectionism, both economic and military.

An insanely difficult Super Mario Maker level has been making the rounds on the internet, and it's one of the most stressful 60 seconds of Mario imaginable. The level is called "P is for Pain" and consists of nothing but spike traps, P switches and trampolines carrying P switches. Something that is notably missing from that list: anything solid to stand on. SEE ALSO: Mario enters the real world in hilarious 'Grand Theft Auto' mod After the first patch of ground right at the start, Mario has to constantly jump and move to avoid death. P switches only offer a brief moment of respite before they disappear completely, so there is no spot to catch your breath anywhere on this level. On top of that, there are no powerups, so Mario dies in one hit. Read more... More about Game Grumps , Reddit , Gaming , Super Mario Maker , and Nintendo

When outspoken progressives among them try to legislate in the public, rather than the corporate interest, Party colleagues are reluctant to follow. That’s how we got where we are today. Republicans will now gleefully exercise the power they’ve acquired, controlling all branches of the federal government and the governments of most states as well. They’ll do their utmost to implement their entire program at last; and the longer they remain in power, the more harm they’re likely to do to the nation: to the urban and rural communities in which the great majority of us live, to our livelihoods, to our individual lifeways, to what’s left of our once-enviable reputation in the world. That’s because the Republican program was not designed to benefit, and cannot win the approval, of most Americans. It will disappoint many Trump voters; and it will infuriate the Democratic majority, those disenfranchised by Republican legislators, and those who usually ignore politics but will now experience unexpected pain.
