En kraftfull högtalare med bra bas och väderskydd, men få finesser.Om man vill spela från en musikkälla utan Bluetooth, eller helt enkelt spara lite ström, så finns det en Aux-ingång bakom en lucka på baksidan.App med equalizer.Med normal volym och bas kan man faktiskt njuta av alla sorters musik.Den är tillräckligt liten för att kunna knölas ned i ytterfacket på ryggsäcken och har ett gummiband för att kunna fästas på cykelstyret eller tältpinnen.Anslutningen via Bluetooth går ganska smidigt och vill man ansluta en annan musikkälla sitter det en Aux-ingång bakom en gummilucka.
Foursquare and Uber have today announced a global partnership that would use Foursquare s location data to let users type in a venue name instead of address when setting their destination.Uber currently partners with Google Maps for points of interest, with TomTom Navigation hooked into the driver apps for directions and transit information.Perhaps more interesting is the fact that this is not a one-sided deal.Foursquare will enable Uber to customize, improve and increase the breadth of our non-personal POI location data to enhance Uber s rider and driver experience.Foursquare and Uber already have a relationship in place, as Uber is integrated into Foursquare via Button.The company has a fine consumer-facing business, but where the value truly lies is in the troves of location data that Foursquare has on both users and the places themselves.
We ve got this amazing treasure, birds found nowhere else in the world, Dr. Lisa Crampton, project leader of the Kauai Forest Bird Recovery Project, told The Huffington Post.Crampton said mosquito-borne diseases, specifically avian malaria, are among the biggest threats facing Hawaii s isolated bird species, and we d be remiss to at least not consider all possible conservation measures, including genetic engineering.And of the 42 that remain, roughly 75 percent are listed as endangered species.Luke Alphey, co-founder and chief scientist of Oxitec Ltd., examines a petri dish containing insects at the company s headquarters in Abingdon, U.K, in 2012.Fish and Wildlife Service, told HuffPost in an email that the agency and its partners are evaluating a wide range of control techniques to protect native Hawaiian birds and ecosystems, and are aware of the evolving technology on genetically modified mosquitoes.And then there s the challenge of getting Hawaii on board — a difficult sell, according to Eben Paxton, an avian ecologist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Hawaii.

Meta descriptions and open graph meta descriptions are like advertisements for your web page that show up on search engine results.There is a meta tag for copyright information, a meta tag that tells search engines whether or not to index the web page, and a meta tag that holds a short, text description of the page.This last tag, the meta description tag, is sometimes used on search engine results pages and on social media sites, when a page is shared.Many companies work very hard to ensure search engine bots can easily index their pages and discern meaning in content, but they forget that ranking on a search engine results page is fruitless unless searchers click on the link, generating site traffic.For ecommerce, it can be a good idea to start a meta description or open graph description with a verb like shop or try.Shop skate shoes at Zumiez, carrying a huge selection of styles from top skateboard footwear brands, like Vans, adidas, Nike SB, and Supra.Wave Ekiden 10 by Mizuno at Zappos.com – FREE Shipping.
