Check out all the new stuff you can do with the Google Fit Platform

To help users keep track of their physical activity, we recently updated the Google Fit app with some new features, including an Android Wear watch face that helps users track their progress throughout the day. We also added data types to the Google Fit SDK and have new partners tracking data (e.g. nutrition, sleep, etc.) that developers can now use in their own apps. Find out how to integrate Google Fit into your app and read on to check out some of the cool new stuff you can do.

Except for Scalia, who dissented with 'Icky Homo'.

(With all due respect to Pilate.)

Think I'm gonna give this a try next time I go out. Been having a hell of a time settling into my new Asics T500Ns, even though the last ones I had were amazing.

Checking out Work Here, an awesome #coworking space, in Maple Ridge today. Sure beats having to try and work in a noisy Starbucks!

Check them out next time you need a quiet, stylish place to get some work done.

Alright, in the interest of not being one of those people that intentionally propagates false information, I acknowledge that Mr. Scarborough (the "self-immolation pastor") did not actually promise that he'd set himself on fire, so my earlier picture today to that effect was inaccurate.

(A mild look of consternation at #TheNewCivilRightsMovement  and +brint crockett for the sensationalist, click-baity title, but I take ownership of my own brigading.)

However, Mr. Scarborough's actual sentiment was no less noxious - that he and those like him face getting burned, literally or otherwise, for standing against marriage equality. He goes on to assert that he'd rather face those fates than acknowledge a basic human right for the LGBT community. So for that, I'm not inclined to give him a pass and retract the photo. I also have doubts he'd offer any of us the same courtesy if our situations were reversed.

Lastly, while "turn the other cheek" and "being the bigger person" may be nice ways of seeking moral high ground, sometimes one needs to come back and say "how about you stop hitting me now", stand up, and fight back.

So no, Mr. Scarborough, I don't actually hope to see you burn. Your poisonous "they don't deserve to be happy" philosophy, however, is already well ablaze.

+Chris Nochance Haha, I don't think any Canadian suffers any illusion as to why stuff takes longer in the US. At least, none of the ones I talk to.

I think your political system is more complex than ours too, which some may forget. And the fact that States can opt-out of Federal law, I think? Makes the battles a lot harder, I bet, if that's the case.

Web Developer, General Technologist, Silly Biscuit
Introduction
Hi!

I'm passionate about technology and how it wields the unending potential to enrich our lives. I envision a future in which advances in mobile and ambient tech become a seamless, transparent part of our daily lives.

I love to tinker, I code for fun and stress-relief, and am of the philosophy that if a tool does not exist to get a job done, then we make our own tools.

Personally, I'm a strong advocate of critical thought and social equality. I consider myself fortunate to live in one of the most forward-thinking and free countries in the world, eh? I enjoy abstract, surrealist, and sarcastic humour, and try to see the silliness and absurdity in most everything.
