Set of 12 Thick Snag Free Endless Hair Elastics Bobbles Hair Bands, This did not seem like a good sign but it was a few weeks

first_imgIf you want to do a lot of smaller braids etc in your hair these do the job flawlessly nicely. They also occur off your hair neatly without acquiring to tug like with some elastics (which leaves a heap of hair nonetheless on the elastic when you have managed to get it out) but they have a single use for each elastic. They stretch out an ridiculous amount after the initially use which makes them far too massive and vulnerable to snapping. If you, like me, want to use elastics like these every single at the time in a while, then these are affordable and will do perfectly. But if you’re right after a little something a little bit far more resilient (like those people elastics for retainers you can get at the dentists place of work) these usually are not for you.Just what they really should be. They are pleasant and stretchy and long lasting more than enough for what they are. I use them to safe braids or more compact sections of hair, from time to time even a pony tail if i want an easy messy seem. My hair is thick, relatively extended and very slidy. (not meant for protected, good pony tails. Which appears to be what some folks received them for. Theyre perfect for braids)only trouble i have is that they simply cannot be reused, once you extend it it does not get back shape and so has to be gotten rid of. But there are heaps in below and so they are really superior benefit for revenue.Ideal for what we essential – arrived in excellent time. Had go through loads of assessments expressing they would snap but didnt. Didnt use them for hair though, employed them as elastic bands to safe product on major of our chutney jars for our marriage favours :).Key specs for Set of 12 Black Thick Snag Free Endless Hair Elastics Bobbles Hair Bands:Enter your model number above to make sure this fits.Set of 12 Snag Free Endless Hair ElasticsDiameter: 4.5cm (1.8″) Un-StretchedThickness: 0.3cm (0.1″)A Great Basic for your Hair WardrobeSuitable for all Hair TypesComments from buyers“This did not seem like a good sign but it was a few weeks , Good for the little things, Exactly what they should be”Coming from somebody else who is so picky about the items they purchase and reads by means of critiques beforehand, examining the testimonials that are quite negative and i’m like what?. Of course if they are tiny elastic ties they’re not gonna tie up your complete pony tail consequently them becoming small. Seriously excellent cost for the item you get. They may only final a single use every single but you get 250 in a pack so just buy extra if you genuinely want a lot more ? once again, fab for the selling price.I bought this products to use when tying my hair in little braids. They are helpful, theres a good deal of them, but they do kinda get all about the location and are fairly fiddly when seeking to stretch them all-around your hair. They are no superior for thick hair, just useful for boho styles when incorporating modest braids and tying ends off.This did not look like a very good signal but it was a few weeks. Honestly, the really very first 1 i lifted snapped when i was placing it on my hair. This did not appear to be like a fantastic indication but it was a number of weeks in the past and no other has in fact snapped. I couple have sort of stretched and gobe skinny but in fairness that always takes place following a although and they are very economical.last_img read more

Moving Pictures: Facebook Adds Video To Instagram

first_imgFacebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… The videos are limited to 15 seconds—a bit longer than Vine’s six-second limit. And crucially, there’s an ability to very simply edit videos as you take them. With Vine’s current app, you have to start over from the beginning.Instagram’s known for its photo filters—and there are entirely new filters for video included. Users can also pick a cover frame for the video from any still image captured.“This is the same Instagram we know and love, but it moves,” says Systrom.Instagram video will be available for both Android smartphones and iPhones today, Systrom said. It will also include an autostabilization feature Instagram calls Cinema.Setting The Stage For Video AdsInterestingly, the 15-second limit is longer than some reports had it. (Rumors suggested Instagram videos might vary from 5 to 10 seconds in length.)But it is long enough for short-form video advertisements. Ad Age recently reported that Facebook, Instagram’s owner, might delay the launch of video ads until the fall.That delay might disappoint eager advertisers. But it will allow time for Instagram users to flood Facebook with short videos.By that time, users will be far more accustomed to seeing videos in their news feeds. And marketers will likely experiment with Instagram to create promotional clips that fit into this new stream of videos seamlessly. When Facebook starts offering video ads, one way it might sell them is to let marketers pay to promote Instagram videos on Facebook—a far less obtrusive way of bringing video ads to the social network.Photo by Owen Thomas for ReadWrite owen thomas Related Posts As we pulled into Facebook’s Menlo Park headquarters, the company’s sign echoed an invitation sent to journalists: “A small team is working on something big.”What is that something?“I’d like to introduce video on Instagram,” Instagram founder Kevin Systrom announced Thursday morning. Instagram: More Than Photos“Instagram is a way to stay connected,” said Systrom, now nearly a year into his employment at Facebook after its $1 billion acquisition of the photo-sharing startup last year. Systrom defined Instagram as a place for “visual imagery,” “moments,” a “place for love”—”no single thing, but a collection of ideas and inspiration.”Notably, he didn’t say Instagram was about photos. Instagram has a lot of photos, mind you: 16 billion of them, Systrom announced, taken by 130 million users.“We’ve taken photos and made them beautiful,” said Systrom. “What do we work on next?”That, it turns out, was video. Systrom said he and his cofounder, Mike Krieger, had considered video years ago, but didn’t feel like they could deliver the “speed, simplicity, and beauty” they could achieve with photos.A small startup, Vine, acquired by Twitter, launched a video-sharing app that suggested one could do exactly that. Many observers have noted this, and it’s widely thought Instagram’s move is a competitive response to Twitter’s launch of Vine.What’s Different About Instagram For Video See also: Sources And Sinks: The Epic Battle To Control How Content Flows On The Web Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Tags:#Facebook#Instagram#Sources And Sinks#twitter#video#Vine A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditlast_img read more

Navjot Kaur Sidhu stokes controversy

first_imgCongress leader Navjot Kaur Sidhu stoked a controversy on Tuesday, alleging that it was Chief Minister Amarinder Singh and party general secretary in-charge for Punjab Asha Kumari who ensured that she was denied the Lok Sabha ticket from Amritsar.“Captain Sahib and Asha Kumari think Madam Sidhu does not deserve an MP ticket. I was denied the ticket from Amritsar on the grounds that I could not win in the aftermath of the Dussehra train tragedy in Amritsar last year,” she told reporters in Amritsar. Ms. Kaur, wife of Navjot Singh Sidhu, said the Chief Minister thought that he was alone capable of leading the party to victory in all the 13 seats of the State.“Amarinder Singh is our junior captain. Rahul Gandhi is our senior captain. Our junior captain has said he would win all 13 seats by himself,” she said, indicating that she might not campaign for the party in the State.On campaigning“Captain Sahib will do the campaigning. Asha Kumari is also a star campaigner. Sidhu Sahib will go wherever Rahul asks him to go,” Ms. Sidhu added. Earlier, Ms. Sidhu had staked claim to the Chandigarh Lok Sabha seat but the party chose former Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal over her as he has been a four-time MP from the constituency. In Amritsar, the Congress has pitted sitting MP Gurjit Singh Aujla against the Shiromani Akali Dal-Bharatiya Janata Party nominee Hardeep Singh Puri. The Amritsar constituency was represented by Navjot Singh Sidhu as a BJP leader on three occasions. Punjab’s 13 LS seats go to the polls on May 19.last_img read more

New South Wales leave it late in women’s open

first_imgBy BEN HARRISNew South Wales led only once in the first game of the women’s open and it was at the time when it counted the most.The women in blue got some revenge from their 2012 series defeat when they defeated Queensland 6-5 at Sunshine Coast Stadium on Friday night.The two sides were never far away from each other, in fact you would have thought they were identical in many aspects.Only a touchdown separated the pair throughout the entire match.Queensland had a chance to send the match into drop-off when New South Wales player Kristen Boss found herself forced-subbed, and with a one woman advantage for the final 10 seconds, Queensland could not score the much-needed touchdown.It was a thrilling end to an entertaining match.It took seven minutes for the first touchdown to be scored, which came courtesy of Savannah Pratten for Queensland.New South Wales captain Louise Winchester showed her experience when she darted through a gap to even the scores a short time later.Queensland took a 2-1 lead into half-time when Kate McCarthy scored.While it was tight in the first half, both teams broke free of their shackles in the second half as they went touchdown for touchdown.Four touchdowns had been scored in as many minutes.Another two touchdowns for both teams and Queensland held a 5-4 lead with 10 minutes to go.Both teams were good in attack but even better in defence as any touchdown-scoring opportunity was foiled by some desperate touches on the line.But two long balls by New South Wales led to touchdowns.The first was thrown by Danielle Davis to Samantha Rodgers.The second was a superb right-to-left pass by Jessica McCall to Elisabeth Hewitt, which put New South Wales into the lead for the first time.It proved to be decisive as New South Wales held on for the win.NEW SOUTH WALES 6 (Samantha Rodgers 2, Louise Winchester 2, Yasmin Meakes, Elisabeth Hewitt touchdowns) def QUEENSLAND 5 (Savannah Pratten, Brooke Walker, Shenae Ciesiolka, Kim Sue See, Kate McCarthy touchdowns).
