#Solved  
Hello,

Looking for a little assist with Flex boxes.

In this example I am trying to create a circle with four segments. what I can't quite work out, is how to move segments 3 and 4 below 1 & 2.

Any assistance is much appreciated.

For anyone looking for a better way to present their presentation, Google has finally added Cast to it's Power Point alternative "Slides". The only thing I will say is that there are more powerful presentation tools out there. Don't get me wrong, it's good for some basic stuff but if you wanna do something more flashy, then nothing beats Prezi but even MS Powerpoint offers a better solution.
 
Show up, don't set up - starting today, you can present your stories easily on big screens. The Google Slides app now supports Chromecast and AirPlay. Say goodbye to wires and set up stress - download the app today for your Android device (goo.gl/uB07vT) or iPhone/iPad (goo.gl/Qt46c6). Happy presenting!  Learn more on our blog (goo.gl/jpHH6e)

Find out the best times to avoid the queue when planning your next shopping trip.
 
Do you ever find yourself trying to avoid long lines or wondering when is the best time to go grocery shopping, pick up coffee or hit the gym (hint: avoid Monday after work)? You’re in luck!

Now, you can avoid the wait and see the busiest times of the week at millions of places and businesses around the world directly from Google Search. For example, just search for "Blue Bottle Williamsburg", tap on the title and see how busy it gets throughout the day. Enjoy your extra time!

I thought it was only me that did this but turns out not...a minor thing but as many an apple fan has said in the past "it's the small things, that make the difference".

I have a new found fondness for Samsung phones with the new Galaxy S6... I am not totally convinced it will last, based on past models but as a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) for work, it works better than other phones I have had recently (all of which were Android based but from other manufacturers).

Without even activating the Knox system I am able to keep my personal and work stuff as separate as I need to for how much I use my personal phone for work. Then there is the support for Exchange, which, is the best I have seen outside a windows phone, certainly better than Gmails Exchange support. These are mostly little things though...

The real clincher for me, is the fingerprint scanner which, like on recent iPhones, allows me to meet our corporate security policies without having to enter some ridiculously complex password every time I want to use my phone.

'*EmployAbility - Let's Work Together*'

Employability is an Internship Program that +National Grid UK started two years ago to give school leavers with learning disabilities the opportunity to not only experience work but also find full time employment. At the end of each year, any student that shows the aptitude to work and contribute to the business is offered the opportunity to take a full time, paid position with the company, something some of these lads and lasses never thought possible.

This not only benefits the students but also the employees at National Grid by giving them the confidence to understand a person's abilities rather seeing their disability which helps tear down barriers for disabled people to fulfill their potential in the work place.

To give some context only about 7% of people with learning disabilities ever make it into paid employment but with the help of programmes like this, hopefully many more people will be able to realise their potential and contribute grow in ways they never believed possible. This doesn't just help them professionally but also socially which is another thing many people with any disability can struggle with. So at the end of May National Grid shared the model with more than 50 other major organisations which will hopefully help more people with learning disabilities around the country to have the same opportunities as those that have joined our teams at National Grid.

Story
Introduction
What can I say...I am a huge evangelist of Android and Google in general, though it is not all about Google, ultimately I just enjoy technology and gadge in general. I am a bit of a geek but more of a commentator than a hands on technical guy.

Don't get me wrong I have done my fair share of tech support and am more than comfortable with VB, SQL, a little C+ and am also quite capable of throwing a web site together using HTML, CSS and PHP..... so OK yes that is all very techy but I don't do enough of it to call myself an expert.

It isn't all techno babble...well not all the time I do enjoy a bit of motor sport and am very disappointed in the BBC's decision to let Sky TV take the lead in the broadcasting of the Formula 1 season from 2012.

The postings on this site are my own and do not represent the positions, strategy or opinion of National Grid the company I work for.

Went here and got to say from the moment I called they were really helpful unlike some other places that won't do anything for you unless you physically go into the store. Haven't placed order yet but once the few last bit of paperwork is sorted I shall be. If there is anything I had to say that was negative about it, it is the consultation area which was just in the reception which just had a whole bunch of chairs kind of just placed there. It wasn't a bother to me as such because I had already made my mind up what I wanted but if I were going there to find the right model I probably would have felt a bit...."Is that it?"! As I say I haven't actually given them the nod on this order yet so I will be revisiting this review again in a few weeks.

I only wish these delivered. This is probably my favourite Chinese take out in Hinckley. Generally speaking the service is quick and portions are a good size especially for the money. Beef Chow Mein is one of my favs, big slices of tender beef.

Not your typical Indian menu they were more traditional dishes and got to say it was bang tidy. Staff were really good, Owner was really engaging making sure we were ok and got to know us a little. What wasn't on the menu they were willing to do and even let us try a few nibbles for free... In fact they insisted. Little more expensive than most places but I really felt it was worth it.
