Nicole Kobie 15 min 6 sec ago Life Culture The ascension of Donald Trump to the presidential hot seat is enough to worry even the calmest soul that the apocalypse is nigh. Be it nuclear armageddon, a Russia-sparked world war, or a plague of tangerine zombies, such disaster scenarios somehow now seem plausible. With the inauguration looming, there’s never been a better time to turn “prepper” and follow the lead of survivalists making ready for apocalypse by storing food supplies and preparing a “bug-out bag” for when the shit hits the fan (SHTF). There are a few items common on bug-out bag listsrope, knives, rain poncho, long-lasting food, water – that you should surely include, although there’s debate over exactly what to bring, as it depends on where you live and your own personal preferences. But alongside keeping fed and fending off thieves, we’d also like to stay connectedlife without the internet simply isnt worth living, and if Trump is going to spark a real-life disaster movie, we’d like to monitor the end of days via his Twitter stream (“Zombies made up.

Its similar to Apples widgets, which are accessed with a swipe right from the notifications shade, but with one fewer finger flick. If you can't go five minutes without checking Twitter, Facebook or Instagram then Flow Home could be the launcher for you. The app replaces your standard home screen with a combined feed for those three services, plus Tumblr and Feedly (or as many of them as you want to include), so they're always the first thing you'll see when you turn your phone's screen on. Your actual apps, which would usually take center stage, are instead relegated to a second screen, though favorites can be accessed by tapping an icon in the bottom right corner, and for anything you want really fast access to you can add a widget above the main feed. Flow Home definitely isn't for everyone, but it's stylish, different and worth a look if you glanced at your Twitter timeline while reading this.

Other technical specs include a weight of 32 grams (shipping weight 41g) and Amazon promises that the pencil is "Unique pencil that can not be missed in any schoolboy pencil case!" Unfortunately there aren't currently any reviews of the pencil on Amazon, but since when did people who were into things as cool as motorcycles play things safe? There are cheaper items available on Amazon, but we think the Harley Davidson Design Wooden Pencil strikes a nice balance between, 'I have to find something cheap to buy,' and, 'you can always use another pencil.' The deal is running for one day only, and the offer is valid once per customer.But you can buy as many Harley Davidson pencils as your heart desires.

It worked. After these changes were implemented, Di Bruno Bros. more than doubled its average conversion rate and boosted online sales by 6.5% . 3) BOXHILL The Takeaway: Showcase the Product (and Earn Press) When BOXHILL revamped its logo, the team looked to implement a new site design that would accomplish two goals: The logo was to appear front and center. The new design needed to showcase the products, pushing more customers to conversion, rather than losing them on what was a confusing journey across the site. The use of white space, a centered logo, and a more modern site experience increased conversion by 410% . Even better?

Spy shots reveal production model’s exterior shape ahead of its reveal; it’ll rival the Porsche 718 Cayman The upcoming Alpine A120 sports car has been spotted testing again in pre-production guise ahead of the model’s unveiling later this year. The Alpine A120 will debut at the 2017 Geneva motor show. Click here for more Captured testing near the Arctic Circle, the camouflaged car looks almost completely unchanged from the concept on which it is based. Key differences include smoother sides, a wingless rear and larger door mirrors. The car wears a rear diffuser with a centrally mounted exhaust, and the concept’s Alpine A110-inspired fog lights have been kept. Renault has confirmed that the car uses a mid-engined layout, and the hinged rear hatch to access the powertrain can be clearly seen on this pre-production model. The production car will use a turbocharged four-cylinder engine of an unspecified capacity.

Some of these such as equalising the age of consent, removing the ban on serving in the Armed Forces, and outlawing all the discrimination practices, which I have already mentioned, other measures prior to 2010 include but were not limited to the repeal of section 28 of the local government act 1988, and, the right of same-sex couples to adopt children and civil partnership legislation. Since 2010 we have seen further measures to enhance LGBT equality and a consistent desire from the government to tackle any remaining prejudice and discrimination.
