So cut a bagel for someone you love today, because nothing says “I love you” like two intertwined, congruent bagel halves.
Sound phobias are very common for dogs—and cats—making this holiday a nightmare for millions of animals. “Half of the dogs in my practice are dealing with fireworks fear this week,” says veterinarian and animal clinical behavior resident Amy Learn, whose clinic in Richmond, Virginia, sees more than 2,000 clients annually. For many dogs, the nightmare has already begun. A quick search on Twitter shows people across the land complaining about neighbors popping fireworks off early. In Boston, where I live, they first started exploding in the middle of last week. The German shepherd next door has been pacing back and forth every night since, nails skittering across the floor.
In the aftermath of the US elections, documentary photographer Guy Martin travelled to Veles, Macedonia to find out why this small town became the heart of the fake news scandal. These are the photos he took.

Skyline – the Bar in Any City: The Skyline lounge (for grown-ups only) has it’s own cool piece of technology, not unlike the virtual portholes. It has no actual windows, but has screens where windows would be behind the bar and on the opposite wall. The screens project what the view would be like if you were sitting in a lounge at the top of a skyscraper in one of many cities around the world.

Microsoft sees those entrenched ways as an opportunity. People are already, still, a part of the Office ecosystem. Microsoft’s job in now to convince them—us—that with the introduction of Office 2016’s new features, it’s worth your while to use Office for every kind of work you’ve shifted onto other apps. And in Microsoft’s favor, it’s got a good head start over even the most popular newfangled productivity tools: 1 in 7 people on the planet (1.2 billion in total) use Office today. The number of consumer subscriptions on Office 365—Microsoft’s cloud-based subscription service—grew 22 percent in the fourth fiscal quarter of 2015, from 12.4 million to 15.2 million subscribers. Microsoft also saw a 74 percent increase in the number of commercial subscribers in that quarter compared to the same quarter one year ago. According to the company, there have been more than 150 million downloads of Office on iPhones, iPads and Android tablets in the fourth fiscal quarter of 2015.
From a future standpoint, I think you could wind up having one account. Underneath that parent account are all the sub-purses, if you will, that will trigger your purchase behavior from there. There might even be credit under there, but there’s one master account and you’ll hook in all these things that you pick. So you can say under this, I want my Citi debit card, and over here is credit, and here is prepaid. And when you make a purchase, you can choose how you want to pay. From there, you could do things like hook it into your QuickBooks and it becomes your own ledger. I think that kind of mass personalization is where payments will end up.
Instead of using the real-time camera capture, you can go into your iPhone’s photo library, Google, or Flickr, and complete the same process with a photo you’ve already taken. When you’ve finished and have a theme you like, you can name it, add tags, and share it to Twitter. All your work in the Kuler app syncs to your web account and Adobe Creative Cloud, so your previously created and favorited color themes will appear in the app, and your new ones will be added on the website. Adobe is also rolling out Kuler integration with all its CC programs, so eventually your themes will be automatically synced not just to Kuler’s website, but to your workspaces in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and other programs you subscribe to in the cloud.
Ken Le said, “This vote is not to mock the hardworking people, toiling to meet impossible expectations…. Unlike the Duke, perpetual lord of vaporware, this vote is cast in loving anticipation…. We’re waiting with a new video card, new CPU, more RAM and a chunk of hard drive just for you.”
