There are reviews elsewhere online if you want to read about someone trying everything the Watch can do. My approach was to let the Watch just fit into my life and see what happened. Here are 11 things I’ve learned from a fortnight of using it. 1. It became a normal part of my life surprisingly quickly I’m not one of those people who had to ‘re-learn how to wear a watch. ’ I’ve worn one pretty much every day since my tenth birthday, and the idea of pulling my smartphone out of my pocket to check the time never quite matched up to a quick glance at my wrist. As yet, there’s been none of the ‘forgetting to wear it and getting out of the habit’ that quickly blighted previous wearable tech that I’ve tried, although I’d argue that people who are used to wearing a watch every day anyway have an advantage... The battery life is surprisingly good Apple says the Watch’s battery will last 18 hours, and I was expecting to have a few scrapes where I’d struggle to have a working device on my wrist by the end of a long day. Point 3 below helps explain this, and I’ve not used it to track any intensive workouts, but with several time-checks per hour, regular interaction with notifications and occasional app usage throughout each day, I’ve never once been worried about...
“ My house will be called a house of prayer. This Bible story in Matthew explains how Jesus observed that some had denigrated a house of worship, causing him to flip over the tables of the “money lenders” and others selling wares. Franklin Graham’s stoking the flames of hate against a minority group in America over the past few days has again brought this Bible verse to mind. Graham announced last Friday that he was pulling the $128 million account for his nonprofit organization, The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association , out of Wells Fargo bank. (It’s truly astounding that it has that much money in the bank—you would think that the Christian thing to do is spend at least a few million on those in need. So why did Graham pull this huge sum of money from Wells Fargo. ” Graham’s answer: Don’t do business with Wells Fargo. And then on Monday, Graham took to the airwaves of the Family Research Council’s radio program to call on other Christians to follow his lead and boycott any business that “promotes the gay lifestyle,” including Wells Fargo, Starbucks, Tiffany’s,... Not content to simply advocate a boycott, Graham added during his radio.
The father of a South Iredell High School senior says his daughter's senior prank was what sparked an evacuation Tuesday morning after officials say "something" was found inside a student's locker. "My daughter was involved in it and told me about it, she was going to do a senior prank, take alarm clocks and put them in all these unused lockers and put, set them to go off every couple minutes, with zip ties, and apparently they thought it... "I didn't think anything of it when she told me, I thought it was kind of funny, you know, have one go off every couple minutes something happen, teachers running everywhere to get them, but I guess the more I think about it now I guess it was... South Iredell High School in Statesville was evacuated just before 10:45 a. m. The incident also resulted in a large police presence from several local agencies, the NC Highway Patrol, firefighters, and Iredell County EMS. “It raised suspicion because number one the alarm was going off inside, one of the administrators or staff members heard it and contacted admin and contacted us," Chief Matthew Selves of the Troutman Police told WBTV. “These are lockers that are not used by students, they actually have zip ties on them and there was a lock on one of these lockers, one of the zip ties had been cut and a lock had been put on it, a key lock type thing.
