Review • iPhone XS review, updated: A few luxury upgrades over the XR HP Laptop 15t Value: $520 (save $780) I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Wait — no, I’m not.

So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

After pool party Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 girls Erica Hina and others

first_imgKasautii Zindagii Kay 2 girls Erica Fernandes, Hina Khan and Pooja BanerjeeinstagramKasautii Zindagii Kay 2 ladies Erica Fernandes aka Prerna, Hina Khan aka Komolika, Pooja Banerjee aka Nivedita and Shubhaavi Choksey aka Mohini Basu enjoyed a break from their hectic shooting schedule. The girls were spotted having an amazing time as they went out for dinner together. A day earlier, they had a pool party in sexy swimwear, pictures of which were later shared on their social media accounts.While the pool party was missed by Shubhaavi, she made sure to attend the dinner date with the girl gang. Hina posted a few pictures from the fun night where her colleagues are chatting over dinner. Recently, Shubhaavi, while shooting for a dramatic act on Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 set, mistakenly slapped Hina instead of Erica.Talking to SpotboyE, Shubaavi, who plays the role of Komolika’s mother-in-law, said: “It was such an unintentional act and I feel very guilty about the same.” She further elaborated saying: “There was a scene where my character Mohini had to slap Prerna (Erica). I was in my own zone as I needed to prepare myself. Unfortunately the marks got changed and accidentally I slapped Hina Khan. I did not realise the mark for closure. This is the first time something like this has happened in my career and I was very uneasy and sad after the incident.”Hina took to Instagram to clear the air after speculations started doing the rounds regarding the reason behind Shubhaavi sending flowers to her. “A lot of you must be wondering why Shubvi sent me flowers in the morning. It was totally unintentional but I kind of zonked out. Shubhaavi has apologised to me a zillion times but it’s really not required. It happened by mistake and after realising what happened, she grabbed me and hugged me,” she said.

Corpus Christi South Padre Island Prepare For Harvey

first_imgIn Corpus Christi, dozens of people waited in line at a Sam’s Club on Thursday. The city and other communities along the coast were shipping in sandbags, extra water and other items.The storm’s maximum sustained winds have increased to near 60 mph (95 kph). The U.S. National Hurricane Center said additional strengthening was expected and Harvey could become a hurricane by Friday, when it’s expected to approach the southern Texas coast.As of Thursday morning, the storm was centered about 335 miles (540 kilometers) southeast of Port Mansfield and was moving north-northwest near 10 mph (17 kph).Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has ordered the State Operations Center to elevate its readiness level, making state resources available for possible rescue and recovery actions. Abbott also pre-emptively declared a state of disaster for 30 counties on or near the coast, to speed deployment of state resources to any areas affected.Emergency officials on Wednesday asked residents along the upper Texas coastline to move or prepare to move inland. Those in low-lying areas were urged to seek higher ground, and those elsewhere were told to monitor official announcements closely.On South Padre Island, people filled sandbags and loaded them into cars and vans Wednesday to take to protect exposed homes and businesses. Others in the forecast path of the storm sought out generators, plywood and other goods from hardware stores. Meanwhile, rice farmers in coastal Matagorda County moved quickly to harvest their crops. Long lines extended from grocery stores along the Texas Gulf Coast early Thursday as residents braced for a slow-moving tropical storm that forecasters say could drop as much as 20 inches of rain.8:30 am HEB Plus on Saratoga packed with people stocking up on water & food.

The storm is expected to make landfall late Friday or early Saturday.“Harvey is looking like it’s going to just meander around the area,” National Weather Service meteorologist Penny Zabel said Thursday. “It’s going to hang out for a few days, and that’s why we’re looking at such high rainfall amounts.”Zabel noted that it’s been 14 years since a hurricane made landfall along the state’s southern coast. She said 10 to 15 inches of rain could fall from Friday through Tuesday, with higher amounts in some areas.Ken Knox secures a friend’s boat in the #CorpusChristi Marina in advance of #HarveyStorm pic.twitter.com/FqCm0IB5ZU— Rachel Denny Clow (@CallerClow) August 24, 2017 Sharelast_img read more

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Vital Stats: Lanny Morton, 37, and Deena Morton, 38, of Sportscloseouts.comCompany: A sporting goods retailer in Phoenix2006 Projected Sales: $4 millioneBay User ID: ArizonaswedeBottom of the Ninth: Lanny Morton knows what it means to get down to the wire. He was broke in July 2002 when his then girlfriend, Deena, suggested he parlay his love for sporting goods into cash by selling sports equipment online. “I bought 20 bats for $40 each. I sold them on eBay and made $500 [profit] in a week,” recalls Lanny. “My brain kicked in and said, ‘If you can turn product that fast, you could really build wealth quickly.'” Rookie Season: “I didn’t think of it as a business at first,” says Lanny. “The idea wasn’t to turn it into a big company.” But after six months of stellar sales, the pair developed www.sportscloseouts.com.Nothing But Net: Features like Buy It Now helped the Mortons turn over product quickly. The challenge was keeping up with customer demand and becoming more efficient at one point, for example the pair had so many customers they had to stop writing shipping labels by hand and find faster ways to create their listings. Salary Cap: Growing so quickly provided a few scares, however. “We were growing to a level of volume that we didn’t have cash reserves for,” says Lanny. But the pair got better at managing their inventory levels and structuring their listings to maximize profits. Today, they have seven employees.The Crowd Goes Wild: The biggest reward for these sports-minded entrepreneurs is the jubilant response from customers. Says Lanny, “I love it when we sell somebody a bat and they e-mail us [saying], ‘Oh my gosh! My kid hit a home run! We love that stuff.” Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 2 min readcenter_img October 31, 2006 Register Now »last_img read more

GNU Health Federation message and authentication server drops MongoDB and adopts PostgreSQL

first_imgJust after RedHat announced its plans to drop MongoDB from its Satellite system management solution because of it being licensed under SSPL, GNU has followed suit. Earlier this week, GNU announced its plans move its GNU Health Federation message and authentication server –Thalamus– from MongoDB to PostgreSQL. As listed on the post, the main reason for this switch is because MongoDB decided to change the license of the server to their Server Side Public License (SSPL). Because of this decision, many GNU/ Linux distributions are no longer including the Mongodb server. In addition to these reasons, GNU expresses their concerns that even the organizations like the OSI and Free Software Foundation are showing their reluctance to accept this idea. Adding to this hesitation of accepting the license; rejection from a large part of the Libre software community and the immediate end of support from GPL versions of MongoDB has lead to the adoption of PostgreSQL for Thalamus. Dr. Luis Falcon, President of GNU Solidario says that one of the many reasons for choosing PostgreSQL was its JSON(B) support that  provides the flexibility and scalability found in document oriented engines. The upcoming thalamus server will be designed to support PostgreSQL. To stay updated with further progress on this announcement, head over to the GNU blog.
