August’s Smart Lock Goes On Sale Online And At Apple Retail Stores For $250 | TechCrunch

That said, the August unit didn’t operate perfectly all the time. Every now and then it didn’t recognize my phone as I approached the door. One time I made it all the way to the door before realizing that I was no longer signed into the app for some reason. 

There was also one late night when a stranger opened the door and walked into the house when August should have auto-locked the door. (The stranger was trying to enter our next-door neighbor’s house and didn’t realize he was at the wrong door.)

Why wouldn’t you just use a fucking key I don’t even

It is officially autumn. The butternut squash at Spar was calling out to me. I thought of pairing the sweet taste of butternut squash with the tang of tomatoes. A simple two layered Lasagna seemed to be the right thing to make.

You need three lasagna sheets. Boil them for 8-10 minutes.

Tomato-mushroom sauce:
Blanch tomatoes. Cut them up. Fry garlic add chopped mushrooms, fry and add the cut up blanched tomatoes. Add oregano and salt to taste. A pinch of sugar. Stir and cook till it becomes a slightly thick paste.

Creamy butternut squash:
Chop the butternut squash (I used the thin top half). Heat oil. Fry half an onion (chopped), add the chopped butternut squash pieces. Cook till tender. Add salt and two tablespoons of cream. Add pepper and keep aside.

Assembly:
Take your baking tray. Pour a drop of oil and spread it out. Put the first lasagna sheet. Spread the tomato mushroom sauce. Add a little bit of cheese. Add the second lasagna sheet. Spread the creamed butternut squash. Put the third layer and apply whatever little is left of the tomato sauce. Sprinkle shredded cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 180.

Goddamnit Vishnu you’re making me hungry

I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

You can also read a more detailed explanation of what’s going down here and watch a live feed here.

I have been keeping up with Hong Kong for about a decade now, and I have to say, their slogan is the most morbid fucking thing on the planet.  

The courage and determination of these protesters is really inspiring. It’s like Euromaidan again. Here’s hoping they have the discipline to resist Chinese provocations and keep up their momentum.

I was watching Feminist Frequency today, and yet again I’m frustrated because she is SOOOOOOOOOOO boring, and simplistic, its the most reductive shallow form of feminism out there. But you know what? The fact is plenty of people hate her simply because she is a women and are attacking her because…

>Anita censors every comment on her videos.

>Anita claims every criticism is misogyny.

>MRAs are at fault.

When the reason why she does the first two is because people are sending her death threats and rape threats because she made a kicstarter where they planned to talk about feminism in games, then yes its there fault.  Its this little thing called Cause and Effect, you might have heard of….no wait, your Thatcher, of course you haven’t

I regret reblogging this.

Of course you do, because like your namesake, your a coward and a weakling.  Which begs the question, why speak up at all.  If you lack the will to actually argue for your beliefs (as sick and dehumanizing as those beliefs are) then have the decency to roll over and get out of the way for those of us who can.  

Yes. You got me.

Why are you still talking?  Either respond or stop bitching and go home.  New Flash, Thatcher is Dead, and we are all thankful for it.  

I think I can reblog and write whatever I want in my blog. Don’t censor me. :’(

I am not censoring you, I am responding to you.  Censoring would imply I had the power to prevent you post from being made.  You have the right to say what you want, and I have the right to say that it is stupid.  

You can accuse Thatcher of many things, but cowardice and weakness are not among them. Also I’m unfollowing you because my timeline is like 50% you arguing with 14-year-olds. Gotta curate my space, yo.

Raising Most People's Wages

robertreich:

I was in Seattle, Washington, recently, to congratulate union and community organizers who helped Seattle enact the first $15 per hour minimum wage in the country.

Other cities and states should follow Seattle’s example.

Contrary to the dire predictions of opponents, the hike won’t cost Seattle…

Well, this is embarrassing

Left: Adrianne Palicki promo shot for NBC’s Wonder Woman.

Right: Kimberly Kane promo shot for ‘Wonder Woman XXX: An Axel Braun Parody’.

….is it just me or does the porno version outfit not only look WAY BETTER crafted and prettier, the actress also has more muscles, a nicer fitting chest piece and a waaay more fitting body type and skin tone. 

Also the porno version doesn’t look more “feminine”/more sexy whatever.

That… is EMBARASSING

the “official” one looks like a really bad Halloween costume

I mean fuck the porno one has bigger wrist cuff I REPEATE: BIGGER WRIST CUFFS PORNO WOMAN IS BETTER DRESSED TO KICK ASS *cries*

can someone contact the designer of the porno 

clearly he/she knows how a womans body works.

It’s embarrassing when the official looks a like a porn and the porn looks like the official thing.

The thing that makes me stunned the most is that even the boobs of the porn version are cupped and held in better by her clothing than those of the official thing…

The moment a porn movie treats the boobs of a woman with more subtlety than a big name production, some staff changes are in order.

What both fascinates and disturbs me the most about these is the body language and facial expression.

The “official” TV version looks passive, slightly confused, her pose is sort of ambiguous and floppy. She’s waiting for the viewer to do something before she reacts. The XXX version looks determined and fierce, and is taking literally 0% of your shit.

One of these Wonder Women looks like a sex toy, and it’s not the pornographic one.

The NBC one just looks so uncomfortable. This is sad.

I think the XXX version is suppose to be a dom, notice the whip

That’s a lasso. And Wonder Woman was always meant to be a domme.
