I cannot believe how many websites I m finding for businesses that do not work properly on mobile devices!Major news organizations, attorneys and even Apple s own website that introduces people to their new 7 Plus iPhone requires a magnifying glass to read the text even on one of the biggest phones in the world with one of the largest display screens.There is also a side scroll bug on the Apple website that prevents the entire top navigation menu from being displayed properly in vertical mode requiring users to flip to horizontal to even see the selections.In other words, your website needs to be responsive.No matter whether a visitor to your website is browsing on a laptop, iPad or a phone it simply needs to work.Scott Web Media specialists can redesign your website so that it is responsive to all devices.
Not only are they beautiful to behold, they also are unique in how they stretch and move.Not surprisingly, scientists have been studying spider webs for years, hoping to uncover the mechanism that allows the material to stretch, yet remain tight.The sticky glue that encases the thread does more than capture prey; it also functions like a fishing reel that coils up the excess parts of the thread.The scientists were able to recreate this unique property using a plastic filament that was covered with tiny droplets of oil.Our bio-inspired hybrid threads could be manufactured from virtually any components.These new insights could lead to a wide range of applications, such as microfabrication of complex structures, reversible micro-motors, or self-tensioned stretchable systems, said Dr. Hervé Elettro, a doctoral researcher at Institut Jean Le Rond D Alembert, Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris.
This week he is on the Google conference for developers, which takes place in Mountain View, California. King veteran Tommy Palm, founder and CEO of Resolution Games, has traveled from Stockholm the day before to participate in Google's developer conference I / O. We knew VR initiative before and it's something we've hoped for will come, says Tommy Palm. We believe that everyone has the opportunity to experience and have fun with VR, not only traditional gamers, "says Tommy Palm. Di Digital has previously reported on Resolution Games first VR-drop, fishing game Bait !, which has been developed for Samsung's Gear VR headset. And do not want to share what Resolution Games will charge for the Wonder Glade.
This week, the Department of Labor announced an update to overtime regulations, changing the salary threshold from $23,660 to $47,476.What Will ChangeThe salary threshold basically means hourly and salaried workers who earn less than $47,476 a year have to be paid time-and-a-half for every hour they work over the standard 40 hours.There are exceptions businesses that make less than $500,000 in sales or nonprofit charities, for example , but overall, the new rules are expected to affect an additional 4.2 million workers.The change goes into effect December 1st, and the threshold will automatically adjust every three years, based on wage growth over time.Geographically, they found southern states are most likely to see a benefit:Raising the threshold will affect workers in all states, with the biggest effects—in terms of states with the greatest share of salaried workers in that state who will directly benefit from raising the threshold—in West Virginia 30.7 percent , Arkansas 30.6 percent , South Carolina 30.3 percent , Florida 29.3 percent , Tennessee 29.2 percent , Idaho 29.1 percent , Georgia 28.2 percent , South Dakota 28.2 percent , Delaware 27.7 percent , and North Dakota 27.5 percent .They also predicted an increased benefit in certain industries:Of the major industries, the new threshold will have the biggest impacts—in terms of the greatest share of salaried workers in the industry who will directly benefit from the increase in the overtime threshold—in agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting 39.7 percent ; leisure and hospitality 37.3 percent ; other services 33.2 percent ; construction 32.6 percent ; and public administration 32.5 percent .
In order to help the states meet that goal, two energy companies are vying to implement floating wind turbine farms off the coast of Oahu that could supply a large amount of the island s power needs.But for a state committed to the sanctity of both the environment and animals, building offshore wind farms isn t necessarily an ideal plan.Hawaii Wind has offered to build two separate wind farms in federal waters: one about 12 miles off of Kaena Point on the northwest coast of Oahu, and a second 17 miles south of Diamond Head.Progression Hawaii Offshore Wind proposed a single 400 megawatt wind farm that would use between 40 and 50 floating turbines off the southern coast of Oahu.Above the surface of the water, fishermen are concerned that the turbines will scare away the sea birds that alert them to fresh catches, or that the wind farms will hinder their regular fishing patterns.There are many obstacles to implementing such a large-scale renewable energy solution in real life, but the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management is currently holding meetings on the two proposals.
Toledo instead stands as a "new" voice among a younger generation of musicians ala Chance The Rapper, age 23, or Torres, age 25 who grew up alongside our current digital music ecosystem.As such, Car Seat Headrest's first original album for a label represents a culmination of many changes the industry has gone through in the past decade-plus: instant accessibility to vast catalogues; the democratization of recording and releasing; the need to share it all immediately.In the decades before the digital music revolution, parents, siblings, and friends needed to have that breadth of music available for you to experience it Blindly fishing at the record store didn't make financial sense, and radio stations couldn't provide the vast and thorough exposure of today's Internet.Debates over the quality of these programs compared to old four-track hardware fill Pitchfork features, but they unquestionably allow someone like Toledo to flesh out his ideas and experiment in a previously unthinkable way.My Back is Killing Me Baby started life as 5, and Toledo re-sequenced the entire thing when changing the album name.The upcoming album contains new songs written expressly for the occasion, so any sneak previews had to be managed.
Editor s note: We previously ran a transcript of Rami Ismail s talk at GamesBeat Summit 2016.Vlambeer has only two people, but the Dutch indie game maker has managed to draw outsized attention to itself during its six years of making games.Part of the reason is that Utrecht, Netherlands-based company has made one hit after another in the bullet hell genre of moment-to-moment action.It has produced hits like Ridiculous Fishing, Luftrausers, and Nuclear Throne.But it has also drawn a lot of attention because of Rami Ismail, its outspoken cofounder and a thought leader for the game industry.Ismail has traveled the world as one of the big voices of the indie game industry, speaking at a wide range of conferences and speaking out on issues such as diversity, Muslim representation in games, Gamergate, and uncompensated crunch time in games.He s drawn a lot of Internet hate for his views, but he has been a voice of reason in some very intense discussions.Our conversation covered topics like underdogs, what indies want from platform owners, seizing opportunities quickly, standing up to Internet bullies, and traveling the world to inspire indies.Anybody here wants the games industry to be the best place it can be, to have the largest audience it can have, to have the biggest impact on the world it can have.
Camp fires or gas burners might be the traditional way of cooking when you re exploring the great outdoors, but both can be fiddly and not that easy to use.The Wayv Adventurer is a thermos flask-sized container that s battery powered and uses radio frequencies to heat and cook food – just like a microwave.The Adventurer started life as a crowd-funding project on Crowdcube, but after raising the money needed to get off the ground – £150,000 – it can now be pre-ordered ahead of an expected release in 2017.Power comes from quick-charging li-ion batteries that are compatible with in-car as well as solar chargers, or being plugged in at home.It can hold between 100ml and 500ml of food or liquid, and while the initial aim was to develop it for military personnel and adventurers, Wayv has seen plenty of interest and enthusiasm from hikers and those simply out fishing, as well as in workplaces where there might not be a microwave or you need a quick desk-side lunch.There s a simple range of controls on the lid of the Adventurer – a start/stop button, timer settings, backlight switch and a digital display to show you how much cooking time is left.
This aerial view of Monterey Bay from the south was created by combining computer-generated topographic and bathymetric data.Vertical relief has been exaggerated to better show the Monterey Canyon and mountains on either side of the bay.Prosecutors have dropped their lawsuit against a California fisherman who they alleged took a government-owned scientific buoy "hostage" after it nearly struck his fishing vessel earlier this year in Monterey Bay.Last month, federal prosecutors filed an amended civil complaint in US v. Sherer.For his part, Sherer had told Ars that he merely wanted adequate compensation for losses he says were caused by the buoy, which popped up out of the ocean in January 2016 and got tangled up in his boat s propellers.As a result, his boat was out of commission for about four days.

I spotted an Otterbox case on the train ride in this morning that more or less confirmed my feelings about the company s products: big, bulky and protective.But while there will always be a place for hyper-protective cases I know what I want my phone in the next time I go crab fishing , the company has clearly been looking for a way to offer up protection without effectively encasing the thing in Lucite.Otterbox took steps toward shedding that image with the launch of its commuter series and the 2013 acquisition of LifeProof, a San Diego-based company that has largely done a good job designing protective cases that do a fine job offering protection without adding too much bulk.The sky s the limit, really, and Otterbox is coming out of the gate with an impressive set of accessories for the iPhone/iPhone Plus case helped along by some high-profile partnerships.Polar has created the lion s share of the plug-ins here, but other partners include a card reader from Square, Olloclip s four in one lens Influx s WiFi booster and Seek Thermal s thermal imaging camera.Of course, as with any phone case, there s still a little mental arithmetic to be done with regards to whether the system is worth your while.
Except it's not money you can withdraw and have to spend on food.His trick was a fairly basic abuse of the trumped-up minicab firm's referral system, one he sort of hacked a bit by creating a Twitter bot to scan for people looking to share codes and... getting in there first.Except he didn't even do it himself.It was made in python by a Kazakhstan student studying in Prague and it cost me $20 in total actual cost was $70, but I had a $50 coupon code ."That bot did nothing more than respond to tweets for Uber referral requests -- which give both the existing user and the new signer-upper £10 in credit -- sending out his code.The fishing trips worked once tuned enough to beat Twitter's anti-spam algos, eventually earning up to 150 referrals worth £10 in free trip credit each time.

They re starting off with the simply named Battle, an eight-player deathmatch in the last survivor is the winner.At first, the fishing rod looks like a useless piece of loot, but you can use it to hook other players and yank them off walkways to their doom.When asked if 4J Studios will be arranging timetabled multiplayer tournaments and competitions, Microsoft producer Roger Carpenter has a positive response.A local multiplayer mode will allow four players to gather around one screen and compete against each other Photograph: MicrosoftAfter the Battle release in June there are plans to release paid-for content packs with new maps and content.Carpenter says there will be new content every month, and eventually new mini-game modes.It ll be interesting to see what mini-game styles follow Battle onto PlayStation, Xbox and Wii U, but for now, it s all about fighting, looting and being a really annoying bat.
Three opposition politicians urged the government to implement a national strategy fishway. The Greens MPs Krista Mikkonen, Halmeenpää Hanna and Emma Kari demanding pace of implementation of the national strategy fishway. Currently, all of our species migratory fish are threatened with extinction and survive mainly planting efforts. In 2012, the fishway strategy adopted by the Government aim to strengthen the vitality of endangered migratory fish stocks. Mikkonen, Halme Head and Karin, this means hydropower companies fisheries obligations of focus from the planting of fish to maintaining and restoring the natural reproductive cycle. Regarding the opening of the fishing road construction would increase the point of view of nature tourism and recreational fishing in the attractiveness of the regions.
Proposed legislation, which could become law this week, seeks to restrict the number of days residents can offer Airbnb rentals in their properties to 90 days a year before they must pay business tax.Tourism has been the salvation of the North Atlantic island where the economy, built on fishing, was seriously damaged after the catastrophic collapse of its banking industry in the 2008 global recession.People bathing in the relaxing waters of the Blue lagoon, Grindavik, South West Iceland.Photograph: David Brabiner/AlamyElvar Orri Hreinsson, a research analyst at Íslandsbanki who recently produced a report on the impact of tourism in Iceland, said the ratio of short-term holiday lets to properties in the central capital was really high compared with other countries with larger populations.Photograph: AlamyLocal media have reported complaints that puffin shops – those aimed at tourists – and Viking-themed enterprises were taking over in downtown Reykjavík.She said the legislation was not an attempt to ban Airbnb, because many tourists preferred that experience to hotels, but to establish controls and to give it a place within the tourism sector where it has to adhere to rules .
Acknowledging The Lost Valley s shortcomings, Natsume vows that community feedback will play a large role in Skytree Village s development prior to release.Harvest Moon has struggled to reinvent itself following the departure of longtime developer Marvelous, which now produces similar farming-themed simulation games as part of Xseed s Story of Seasons series.The Lost Valley pictured above marked a significant departure for the Harvest Moon series, adding Minecraft-inspired terraforming mechanics while omitting expected features like explorable villages and item foraging.Natsume promises an improved gameplay experience in Skytree Village with additions like user-friendly tutorials, upgraded farming tools, and overhauled fishing mechanics.After the evolutionary Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley and a successful jaunt to mobile platforms with Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories, we are really excited to share everything we have learned with our fans, Natsume CEO Hiro Maekawa said.Harvest Moon: Skytree Village will make its debut appearance at the Electronic Entertainment Expo later this month.
Discovery Communications Inc. is in talks with Twitter Inc. and Facebook Inc. to show programming from its Eurosport channel, including Olympic Games, on the social-media sites in Europe, Chief Executive Officer David Zaslav said.The Internet companies approached Discovery and Eurosport, its pan-European sports broadcaster, for deals to stream sports content, Zaslav said in an interview during the French Open tennis tournament on Thursday.Discovery owns the European television rights to four Olympics games, starting with the Winter Games in South Korea in early 2018.Deals with Facebook or Twitter have the potential to expand Eurosport s reach by drawing younger social-media users to the Olympic Games, one of the oldest sporting events on the planet.It s an audience that s been dwindling in recent years as younger people ditch traditional TV in favor of viewing content on mobile phones and tablets.Last year, Discovery agreed to pay 1.3 billion euros $1.5 billion for exclusive European broadcast rights to air the Olympics, which it will show mostly through Eurosport, in a bid to strengthen the network and give it heft in negotiating deals for sports rights.Known in the U.S. for reality shows such as Alaskan Bush People and Deadliest Catch, which features life on board fishing vessels in the Bering Sea, Discovery today earns about half its revenue outside its home country.The Silver Spring, Maryland-based company has committed $5 billion to sports over the next 10 years, Zaslav said.Twitter is paying the National Football League $10 million to stream 10 Thursday night games during the 2016 season while Snapchat in April agreed with Comcast Corp. s NBC to show highlights from the 2016 Summer Games.Discovery, which counts cable-TV billionaire John Malone as an investor and has snapped up a number of European broadcasters and a production studio in the U.K., is also doubling the money it invests in Eurosport to $300 million, Zaslav said.

In his writings, naturalist and intrepid explorer Alexander von Humboldt recounted how natives in Venezuela used horses to lure and trap electric eels.According to Kenneth Catania, a biologist and neuroscientist at Vanderbilt University, electric eels can be up to eight feet long, weigh as much as 20 kilos, and can deliver up to 600 volts of electricity to stun and kill their prey—five times the power of a standard electrical socket.So they went to the South American village of Rastro de Abaso in Veneuela and enlisted the help of natives there in obtaining live specimens.Electric eels like to burrow down deep into the slime of marshes and shallow waters, making them difficult to catch using typical fishing techniques.He placed electric eels in a small aquarium and submerged a conductive rod and metal plate.Sure enough, the eels leapt up as the plate entered the water, bending their necks to maintain contact with it as they released high-voltage pulses.
