Z-Edge F1 dash cam: Great image quality and versatile GPS outweigh the baffling buttons

The $170 Z-Edge F1 ticks nearly all the boxes a front/interior dash cam should tick, especially for professional and rideshare drivers. Boasting 1440p front video, 1080p front/interior video, good night and low-light captures, and GPS, it’s almost the total package—once you figure out how the heck to use it. Features and specs The F1 is a wide-body camera, measuring approximately 4.25×1.75×1.35 inches. It’s handsome as dash cams go, with a suction mount that also incorporates the GPS module. Nicely, the GPS module serves as a handle that rotates to aid the removal mechanism. If you’ve used a high-suction model that relies on only a rotary dial, you’ll appreciate how much easier it is.

OnePlus 7 review: competition-beating performance for less

A little less ‘Pro’ means the regular OnePlus 7 is smaller and lighter, offering a top experience for £500 The OnePlus 7 is basically the OnePlus 6T with the guts of the OnePlus 7 Pro, which sounds like a bad thing, but for £500 it is arguably the best bang for your buck going. There was nothing wrong with the design of the 6T, so there isn’t with the 7. The 6.41in AMOLED display is bright and crisp, filling most of the front of the phone with a small chin at the bottom and a teardrop notch in the top for the selfie camera.

Into the Lighthouse: the UK’s first safe space for child sexual abuse victims

Radical one-stop shop aims to provide care and support to traumatised children Tucked behind a busy north London road, the UK’s first “safe space” for child sexual abuse victims is an oasis of calm. Set over two floors, the building is airy and light. The toxic legacy of child abuse gets minimal attention, yet the problem amounts to a public health challenge, say experts. Although we don’t know exactly how many children in the UK experience sexual abuse as it’s hidden from view, research suggests one in 20 children have been sexually abused, yet many more incidents go undetected, unreported and untreated.

‘Five years to do 10 chuffing houses!’ – meet the guerrilla gardeners of Granby

Why is there a full-size tree inside this once-abandoned Liverpool terrace? Step inside Granby Winter Garden, the latest transformation from Turner prize winning architects Assemble From the outside, they look like any other houses in the street, with their big bay windows framed by chunky liver-coloured sandstone, and bright-blue front doors in brick-arched openings. But there’s something strange going on. You can see the sky through the first-floor windows, and exotic leaves are pressing up against the panes. Step inside and, rather than a standard two-up two-down, you’re confronted with a lush scene of ferns, lilies and full-sized beech trees, while fronds of star jasmine wind up the stair banisters towards a greenhouse roof. This is the Granby Winter Garden, …

Amaal Issues Debut “Black Dove” EP & Plants Her Stake In The Ground

Somalian-born, Canadian-bred songstress Amaal made a strong resurgence in the last year with her “Coming & Going” and “Not What I Thought” singles, properly giving the siren her due entrance in a climate where R&B in an increasingly post-genre industry has found definitive revival in its torchbearers. Amaal’s catalog is no anomaly to the notion and with her full-length Black Dove EP, she properly assures us of such. The effort is a wondrous mix of midtempo bops to emotive and moody selections. Altogether, they craft a cohesive six-track offering that finds Amaal translating womanhood and growth into instant staples. “I know I’ve had great opportunities come my way and I’m very happy and ecstatic for them,” she tells Exclaim! of the real-life …

Medical Alert Tattoo

I'm a diagnosed coeliac and have a few other issues that I feel would be an issue if I ever had to be in hospital and was not able to advocate for myself. I'm considering getting a medical alert tattoo of some kind on my abdomen with that information and am wondering if any of you have one of these or suggestions on size, design, or location. A search on the web shows me lots of folx with tattoos on wrists. Is this a better location than abdomen? I have a job where any visible tattoo might be an issue with my employer. Just looking to bounce around ideas, thanks very much in advance. submitted by /u/TraipseAndTiptoe [link] …

Lea Michele Remembers Cory Monteith 6 Years After His Death: “The Light Always Remains”

It’s been six years since Cory Monteith tragically passed away, and Lea Michele is making sure his legacy lives on. The 32-year-old actress, who married Zandy Reichs earlier this year, honored her former boyfriend on Saturday with a touching photo and message on social media. She shared a snap of the sun breaking over the water on Twitter, with the caption “the light always remains” – a similar sentiment to the tribute she shared exactly a year before. Lea and Cory were costars together on Glee and dated for almost two years, until he died in 2013. She keeps Cory’s memory close in the form of two tattoos: one of his character’s name, Finn Hudson, and the other of Finn’s …

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.

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.

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. A-listers have been wearing different variations of the electric shade across their nails. Cardi B paired the hue with an almond shape, while Billie Eilish’s version of the manicure was extralong. Chief Creative Officer of Paintbox Eleanor Langston predicted the trend in an interview with POPSUGAR, saying to to expect the fluorescent hues to be popular this Summer. “We are already starting to see our [Paintbox] clients transition to brighter, bolder colors for an early start to Summer — they’re willing warmer weather to come,” she said.

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 …
