What’s in a job title? A marketer by any other name would still smell so…

I’m up for a raise and contract renegotiation soon. My manager said I should give some thought on whether I would like a title change. This would largely be symbolic and really just for resume purposes as my job description and duties would remain the same. As of now I am the Digital Marketing Coordinator on a 3-man marketing team for a $25 mil/yr company. My duties include but are not limited to: – All graphic design (print and digital) – web design and maintenance – SEO – Content creation (blog articles and videos) – Social media (posts and ad campaigns) – Digital advertising – Aid in planning and attending networking events Ever heard of being spread thin? 🙂 The …

Sink into Tycho’s fifth studio album, ‘Weather’ [Stream]

The further an artist’s career extends, the less frequent are the opportunities for sonic firsts. Such would certainly seem to be the case for Tycho; the ethereal stylistics of Tycho’s sound spanned four studio albums, and spilled over into a fifth July 12, with the arrival of Weather. Weather is an ambient next installment in Tycho’s successive history of long-form outings that constitutes a new first for the electronic entity: the application of his own vocals. “I wanted to finally fulfill what has been a vision of mine since the beginning, to incorporate the most organic instrument of all, the human voice,” writes Tycho. Tycho integrates his vocals with measured subtlety, to foreground those of fellow artist, Saint Sinner, across …

Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 855 Plus is a natural fit for tomorrow’s gaming phones

Qualcomm has announced a mid-year refresh of its flagship Snapdragon 855 chipset. The new Snapdragon 855 Plus is further optimized for gaming, VR, AI, and 5G connectivity. It sticks to the same overall design and chip layout as the 855, but Qualcomm says the Plus’ eight-core Kryo CPU runs at higher peak clock speeds of up to 2.96GHz. But more important to gamers is a 15 percent performance improvement from the Adreno 640 GPU. That will likely result in the 855 Plus making its way into the next wave of gaming-focused smartphones like those we’ve seen from Asus, Razer, and other companies. As for AI and VR improvements, Qualcomm is continuing to talk up its fourth-generation AI Engine that’s capable …

Does anyone else really like a deck- except for one aspect of it?

It could be a single card, the sizing, the matte/ gloss, or anything, but I was wondering if anyone felt the same as me. For me, my hands are child-sized, so card size and ability to shuffle them is important. But there's this one oracle deck, Colette Baron-Reid's Wisdom of the Oracle- I love the design, but there's faces everywhere. Hidden everywhere, and I hate it! I wish there was a deck without it, 'cause otherwise I love the design. Anyone else have a deck they really like except that one thing? submitted by /u/SquirrelTale [link] [comments] Read more: reddit.com

Jr. Developer resume, trying to get my foot in the door, looking to advice

Resume ​ Just recently completed an online developer bootcamp for front-end development. I've only really applied to a handful of jobs, because I am still working on some personal projects and want to gain another language under my belt before I think I'll really be ready.

Should skills now be at the top? Should I leave my experience? Add stuff? …

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 leaks in official-looking promo image

The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 has been doing the rounds in the rumorsphere lately, with mumblings talking about it matching the latest Apple Watch in offering ECG and fall detection, and maybe even one-upping its competitor by packing in body composition measurement. And now we get to glance at what surely looks like the first leaked official press render: As you can see, it confirms the name, as well as an overall design that’s very similar to the first Watch Active – unsurprisingly, of course, as this is bound to be that device’s successor. That’s a little odd, though, given… Read more: gsmarena.com

Billie Eilish, Rihanna, and Cardi B Have All Worn This Summer’s Hottest Nail Color Trend

In the same way that neon green symbolizes “go” on a traffic light, our favorite celebrities are thrusting the hue forward as this Summer’s biggest nail color trend.

Google is redesigning its News tab with more emphasis on headlines and publisher names

Google is rolling out an update to the News tab of its desktop search function, with a refreshed design that sacrifices information density for clarity. The new design, which the company announced in a tweet, brings the look of the News tab closer to that of the dedicated Google News site. News stories are now displayed in a card format rather than a list, making headlines and the names of publishers more prominent. It also seems like the company is grouping stories together more clearly, so if you search for a broad topic (like “MLB”) it’s easier to distinguish different strands of coverage. Over the next couple weeks we’re rolling out a redesigned News tab in Search on desktop. The …

‘There was blood on the walls’: what to do when teen parties go wrong

When my son threw a Facebook bash for 25 friends, it spiralled out of control. So why did I encourage him to have more? We were enjoying a final barbecue with our two younger children on the last night of a holiday in Cornwall. Earlier we had dropped Jake, our 16-year-old, at the station so he could go home for a party. What we didn’t know, as we watched another dazzling sunset, was that the party was at our house. Jake was the host. And it had been flagged on social media for more than a week. Skip to the next day. We were driving home when we received an ominous phone call from Jake: “I’m really sorry,” he said, …

Limitations of Love Spells

Hello all, I’m a new witch (I’ve only been practicing for seven months) and am curious about love spells. I’m not intending on doing any, anytime to anyone, but am just curious as to what they are, how they go into affect, and what they mean. Can you cast a love spell on someone you don’t necessarily know, or have contact with? I wondered this after someone I knew remarked about casting love spells on celebrities, ones that this person had never met. At first I assumed it would be impossible to do, but celebrities are regular humans at the end of the day. Then I wondered if perhaps this person would simply be placing a curse upon themselves by …

Mate 30 Pro might feature a daring new design that Samsung wouldn’t attempt

A report a few days ago from a trusted Samsung insider revealed that Samsung has been working on smartphone designs unlike anything we’ve ever seen. But the company decided not to go forward with those plans for its next-gen devices. The same leaker then said the Mate 30 Pro, which is easily one of the most exciting phones of the second half of 2019, would have the display innovations that Samsung decided to ditch.
