The Tomb Raider reboot, at least in my opinion, was one of the more recent successes in injecting a refreshing take on everyone’s favorite heroine.

Moreover, one casual gadget can combine a few different functions. Let us see what novelties can make our life more exciting.

There was nothing but excitement as the escalator took me up to the floor of Arrozeria at the Century Mall. Known for its paella and other dishes focused on rice, the venue of choice piqued my (blooming) sensitivities to expand my palate. This was the lunch venue of Cheryl Tiu’s “Cross Cultures” food tour, a movement to experience the food we don’t often see (or taste) very often. For lunch, we had Rachaleve’s Kenyan Cuisine behind the counter. Her full name is Rachaleve Kamau, born in Nairobi and like many foreigners with similar origins stories of landing in the Philippines, fell in love with Manila in 2009. She lives here part time, sharing Kenyan cuisine in dappled regularity at bazaars and catering.
A lot of companies organize large scale events, such as seminars or office parties, and forget to focus on audio visual equipment and lighting. This is mainly because they don’t know how much planning is actually involved in this. The technical side is something that most people have little understanding of, after all. According to a prominent audio visual company, a number of problems are most common.
There is a huge rise in demand for loans for people with poor credit ratings. This is mainly because everyday people are still suffering from the recent economic collapse.

So it’s been a while, but Libon has really been making waves from the other side of the pond. “Traditionally” speaking, VoIP apps are always third-party, coming from familiar services such as WhatsApp and Viber.

Libon, which is short for “Life is Better On” is made by French’s Orange but is available worldwide to anybody, as an “Over-the-Top” app.

When compared to Europe, what do Tauck Tours to USA river cruises have to offer? Many people believe it would be an inferior experience. In reality, however, they would be wrong.
As a gamer, I’ve been quite sedentary in front of the computer. Video games go well with chips and soda. It was only years later (now that I am in my mid-30’s) that I feel I’m paying for all of the sugar. But it’s never too late — I’ve gone back to the gym and removed soft drinks (SODA WATER FTW!!!) from my diet.

Looking to build your website rankings for the coming new year? Incorporate these web design trends with your site to keep your readers engaged.
It is incredibly fascinating to observe the evolution web design undergoes over the years. Sometimes changes occur seemingly all by themselves, sometimes as a reaction to changes in offline or online world; but the process never stops for a single moment. Knowing these tendencies, it is not all that hard to make an educated guess what web design will be like in 2016 – so let’s take a look.
In this technologically evolving world, it’s easy to forget about the technologies that got us to where we are today.
Many of them aren’t obsolete in the way the floppy disc or cassette tape is. Simple inventions like the ink pen continue to be as relevant today as they were when they were first introduced. They continue to have a very important relationship with humans, and the way we think and record our thoughts and feelings. Here are three reasons to think about making handwriting more a part of your life, as well as a suggestion to let uni-ball provide the pen you use to do it.
(1) Handwriting is the most tactile form of recorded communication. There is something about putting a pen to paper and using it to map out each character that represents a thought, which is useful in turning that thought into a memory. Typing just doesn’t have the same physical connection to higher thought. Perhaps this is because handwriting is so difficult to learn for the first time. Children labor at it in school, trying to get their clumsy fingers to mimic the motions necessary to craft neat print and cursive.
(2) Handwriting is personal. It’s a uniquely human form of recording words. Computers can generate their own text, but an individual’s handwriting is as unique as her fingerprint. When communicating from the heart, nothing works like handwriting.
(3) Handwriting is beautiful. Handwriting can achieve a nuanced beauty that a typeface never could. There is a place for both, of course. But without handwriting, written communication becomes tragically uniform.
Uni-ball is trying to reclaim handwriting for a new generation, providing the best pen experience you’re likely to have. Click here to see some of the pen options that uni-ball brings to the table. Next time you need to make a note or write a letter, do it with uni-ball.
From bracelets that can track your daily activity and heart rate to watches that accept phone calls and send text messages, wearable technology is becoming more common. Until now, medical professionals have had to rely on obtrusive home tests and patient compliance to gather daily data on their patient’s chronic medical conditions. For millions of diabetics, this means constant monitoring of fluctuating blood glucose levels via a finger prick and a portable blood glucose monitor. A team within tech giant Google, known as Google X, is working on making wearable technology in the form a smart contact lens. Think of a smart lens as an amped-up technology-rich version of your favorite contact lenses such as the ultra-popular Acuvue Oasys lenses.
