BEGGING POST

Last year our family ran a charity even for Breast Cancer Care in our local town hall. It was really well attended, around 240 people, and we raised £10,000. We are running it again this year on the 15th of October and are on the hunt for sponsorship and prizes to auction off.

Here's the begging part. I would love it if any of you that own a business, work for a business or know someone that works for a business could help us find sponsorship or prizes (especially pink coloured prizes). Obviously there would be recognition for whoever helped out through being mentioned on our website and in our evening programme.

If you can help, or know someone that can help please contact me on hangouts or drop me an email (thebigchiefs@gmail.com). I really appreciate all and anything you can do to help.

Check out or site below and please remember, no offer is too big or too small, all is appreciated.

Breast Cancer took my mother in law and I'll do all. I can to help fight it and try stopping it from taking more lives. 
In Memory of Christine Thomson

Super excited that I get to talk about this now! This is how Open Source should work - sharing and contributing ideas and software back and forth, working towards bettering the ecosystem as a whole. 

Best part is that those devices sold to consumers using the QRD base and software instantly gain the benefit of all the community involvement in CM and Cyanogen alike. 

CAF is a well known figure in the Android ROM circles, and now we have a way to not only influence design of a large platform, but to also serve as an amplifier to how far a community driven feature can go. 

This goes beyond forums, pages and communities - this has the potential to shape hundreds of millions of user's experiences with Android.

"The Apple Watch ... is kind of slow."

"Sometimes apps take forever to load, and sometimes third-party apps never really load at all. Sometimes it’s just unresponsive for a few seconds while it thinks and then it comes back."

"It’s also surprisingly heavy."

"[The] side button is extraordinarily confusing."

"In the first of many moments where the Watch felt underpowered, I found that the screen lit up a couple of ticks too slowly: I’d raise my wrist, wait a beat, and then the screen would turn on."

"Having a screen that constantly flips on and off is definitely behind the curve."

"There’s no particularly great digital face, and there’s no ability to load up your own watch faces or buy new ones from the store."

"There’s no master switch to turn all notifications on and off, which is a huge pain."

"By the end of each day, I was hyper-aware of how low the Apple Watch battery had gotten."

"You only get a charging cable, which is lame. For $700, you should a nice charging stand, like you get with the $249 Moto 360."

"There’s virtually nothing I can’t do faster or better with access to a laptop or a phone except perhaps check the time."

"There’s no question that the Apple Watch is the most capable smartwatch available today."

Obama said he was concerned about Beijing's plans for a far-reaching counterterrorism law that would require technology firms to hand over encryption keys, the passcodes that help protect data, and install security "backdoors" in their systems to give Chinese authorities surveillance access.
By Jeff Mason WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Monday sharply criticized China's plans for new rules on U.S. tech companies, urging Beijing to change the policy if it wants to do business with the United States and saying he had raised it with President Xi Jinping. In an interview with Reuters, Obama said he was concerned about Beijing's plans for a far-reaching counterterrorism law that would require technology firms to hand over...

Couldn't share this the normal way because the original poster has me blocked, but I agree so much with it that I'm sharing anyway:

"When +CyanogenMod​ first announced they were forming an actual company, so many people cried out that CM as an open source project was dead. When CM started taking in funding from investors, especially when one was rumored to be Microsoft, many claimed CM was a sell out.


CM has shipped on multiple devices, received millions in funding, and yet they still contribute back heavily to the open source community. Never once leaving behind their roots as so many had feared would happen.

You were all so paranoid CM would be a sellout. How fitting it is that Paranoid Android actually is."

I don't even ... I hope this is weird satire or something. But it seems it isn't: "I stand by my decision to abort my baby because it was a male." https://web.archive.org/web/20150117101103/http://injusticestories.com/i-aborted-my-baby-because-it-was-a-boy/
Over the past 3 years, I have lost many friends, and several of my own family members have completely cut off communication with me. I now know that these are...

From this article:

In conclusion, E-cig exposure results in immunomodulatory effects that are similar to those observed after exposure to cigarette smoke. Since bacterial and viral exacerbations are major drivers of COPD disease progression, this study raises a concern that COPD patients who switch from cigarettes to E-cigs may not observe substantial improvement in their disease progression. Furthermore, popularity of E-cigs among teenagers is rapidly rising, which may lead to an emerging threat to public health with regards to recurrent bacterial or viral infections. Despite the common perception that E-cigs are safe, this study clearly demonstrates that E-cig use, even for relatively brief periods, may have significant consequences to respiratory health in an animal model; and hence, E-cigs need to be tested more rigorously, especially in susceptible populations.

From the Verge: David Peyton, a chemist at Portland State University who was not involved with the study, tells The Verge. "Critically, I would like to see this group follow up with no-nicotine e-cigarette fluid, I would like to see no flavoring at all, I would like to see ... the glycerine alone, and see what effects those have." Though Peyton sees no problems with the study's protocols, its limited scope means that it's a starting point for a lot more research. "As a scientist there are a whole host of question that this study opens up."

And I agree. There are many different variables at play here, but the most important takeaway is that there appears to be some immunosuppressive effect from this ecig vapor. People are going to argue that it's so much better than cigarettes for you, and that's completely true. It's a great smoking cessation device, if you plan on actually quitting eventually. Many people switch to ecigs only to go on to be addicted to using ecigs. While that's ultimately much better for them than cigarettes, it's not better than using nothing at all.

Another problem is that there is a substantial rise in people simply starting with ecigs because they enjoy the flavoring or "cool factor." For ecigarette companies, this is great. For the consumer, not so much. 

This is an actual, peer reviewed mouse model which is more definitive than in vitro models that have been done in the past.
