Fitbit Inspire HR review: Detailed fitness tracking for a low price

TwitterFacebook Fitbit Inspire HR $99.95 View Product The Good Impressive feature lineup for the price • Easy setup • comfortable to wear • Mobile app integration works seamlessly The Bad Serious lack of extra features • Mobile notifications on the watch screen are useless • Step counter a bit generous at times The Bottom Line It's easily the best value in Fitbit's product line, but don't expect a lot of bells and whistles. ⚡ Mashable Score 3.5 😎 Cool Factor 2.0 📘Learning Curve 2.5 💪Performance 4.0 💵 Bang for the Buck 4.5

I’ve never particularly liked wearing things on my wrists. Watches, wristbands and the like tend to be more distracting than not, and the fact that I have a phone on me at all times negates the time-keeping aspect of watch ownership. Read more...

Jimmy Fallon surprises military veteran with $50K in heartwarming video

The second surprise, meanwhile, was even closer to home. "Our friends at The Home Depot Foundation started a brand new contest this year called Operation Surprise, where people all across the country get to nominate a U.S. military veteran in need, and the winner gets $25,000 to go towards critical home repairs," explains Fallon in the clip above.

Workplace harassment and abuse are hugely under-reported, and the problems are only made worse by the fact witnesses hardly ever speak up
Fairfax Media / Getty A whitepaper released by Spot — an artificial intelligence tool where people can anonymously report abuse — showed that while 79% of 1,096 interviewed participants had seen an incident of workplace harassment or discrimination, 77% of them never reported it to human resources. This is a stark reality for people who face these problems in the office. Sergaya Krantz told Business Insider she believes she was the victim of intense bullying and harassment in her old job. She claims her former manager spread a false rumor that she was mentally ill, which led to her being told to leave the office. She said she felt nobody in the office supported her, either taking part in the abuse or ignoring what was going on. Psychologist Julia Shaw, cofounder of Spot, believes her team's artificial intelligence bot is the key to encouraging more people to report what happens to them and others. There are many reasons people don't speak up, including fear of losing their job, and not wanting to interfere. But Shaw said it's up to everyone to realize the power they may have over others, and that harassment is not an individual problem, but a structural one. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. When Sergaya Krantz raised concerns about a coworker who wouldn't stop pretending she was a cat, she didn't realize it would start what she believed was a vicious campaign to remove her from the office. Krantz worked at the UK branch of Bloomberg Tax, a department within Bloomberg Industry Group, in London until February 2018. The company is a small subsidiary of Bloomberg LP, with about 25 employees, that supplies legal tax information.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Taylor Swift is the world's highest-paid celebrity.

Saudi Arabia video labels feminism an 'extremist idea,' undermining attempts to promote tolerance and attract western female tourists
The General Department for Counter Extremism/Twitter Saudi Arabia says feminism is an "extremist idea," despite taking steps to make foreign female tourists welcome in the kingdom. The General Department for Counter Extremism released a video on Friday warning "all forms of extremism and perversion are unacceptable." A voiceover in Arabic listed feminism, atheism, and homosexuality as extremist pursuits.  The news contrasts with laws accompanying Saudi Arabia's new tourist visa, which made it easier for foreign women to travel solo, and advertising campaigns extolling the virtues of the country. 11 Saudi feminist activists were imprisoned in June 2018, some of whom were tried in a specialist court for terror offenses this year.

'When you're black, being alive is a success': Angel Bat Dawid, 2019's brightest new jazz star
Recording on the fly on her iPhone, the Chicago musician quit a high-end job to embrace free jazz and confront the racism that still thrives in the USFor young black girls from deprived parts of Chicago looking to play the clarinet, there aren’t too many role models. “I’d never even heard of the clarinet before. It didn’t look cool. I’d seen saxophones, but this looked weird,” says Angel Bat Dawid, who was told she could play one in her school band. “I went to the library to work out what it sounded like, and everything I could find was Benny Goodman. I was like: damn, this corny-looking instrument with this corny-looking white dude.”Thirty years later, Bat Dawid has hauled the clarinet out of corny white dude territory and hurled it into the cosmos. She appears at this month’s London jazz festival and her debut album The Oracle is one of the year’s best releases in any genre, where swelling vocals, warm organ chords and lilting and freaked-out clarinet lines combine in a profoundly affecting whole. It was recorded on the voice notes app of her iPhone, and takes its name from her own nickname, a character in the Matrix: “A powerful black woman, and when everyone is acting crazy, she’s chilling in her kitchen and dropping so much wisdom. I aspire to be a woman such as that.” Continue reading...

Forget the evil stepmother: why step-parents are often at the heart of a happy family
Step-parents are much maligned in pop culture, but many children develop lifelong – and life-affirming – bonds with their parent’s new partner. What’s the secret of making the relationship work?Tales of wicked stepmothers may be common in storybooks, but they are often a far cry from reality. Despite the potential challenges with step-parenting, many children develop close bonds with their mum or dad’s new partner. The actor Dakota Johnson, now 30, is still on great terms with her stepfather, Antonio Banderas, who divorced her mother, Melanie Griffith, in 2014. At the Hollywood Film awards this month, the Spanish actor revealed just how close they still are. “She calls me Papi, and I love that, you have no idea.” The Fifty Shades of Grey star described her childhood growing up with him as “the most fun a kid could have”.They may present a contrast to the evil step-parent stereotype we see depicted in movies, but they certainly aren’t alone. Since divorcing her husband six years ago, Frances Rose has maintained a close friendship with his daughter, Louise. “I first met her in 2003 when she and her siblings were very young,” she says. “Her mum handled the breakup extremely well with a lot of maturity, which made it easier to get to know her children.” Continue reading...

The Atlantic Makes a New Mark
The Atlantic has an arresting new look, and a new way for readers to experience its journalism.Today, The Atlantic has launched a stunning design and product experience—most striking through a new logo and visual identity; a complete redesign of the print magazine, beginning with the December issue, out today; and an iOS app that now offers a more curated, visual, and personal way to navigate The Atlantic’s journalism. This is the most dramatic overhaul of The Atlantic’s visual identity in its 162-year history; the design draws on the best from that legacy while creating an enduring and instantly recognizable mark for The Atlantic wherever readers encounter it.[See a video about the design and a Q&A between editor in chief Jeffrey Goldberg and creative director Peter Mendelsund.]These changes arrive two months after The Atlantic launched a digital subscription service, beginning a new era for The Atlantic and for its readers. September and October both drew record numbers of subscribers—more than double the number of subscriptions and revenue originally forecast.“The design is bold but classical, beautiful but spare, and respectful of the reader most of all. We’ve rethought everything about the way we present The Atlantic to the world, helping readers better understand our words through clarity in design,” said Goldberg. “The resulting work makes The Atlantic visually arresting, classically informed, and radically modern, all at the same time.”Among thousands of design changes, the most noteworthy is to the logo: The Atlantic nameplate that’s consistently topped the magazine (in different forms) for a century and a half has been updated to a simple and declarative A. The Atlantic also commissioned its first bespoke typeface, Atlantic Condensed, which was inspired by the original type chosen by the magazine’s founders in 1857. The new design also marks the start of a wholesale redesign of the website, beginning with a simplified and streamlined design and user experience.The North Face is the exclusive launch sponsor of the new design and The Atlantic’s app.The MagazineThe new visual identity, led by creative director Peter Mendelsund and senior art director Oliver Munday, retains the heritage and sensibility of the 162-year-old magazine while giving as much weight to the design as has long been given to the words. Small design and editorial elements emphasize the magazine's history and ethos: the magazine’s founding year, 1857, is noted quietly on the cover; the mandate of its founders to be "of no party or clique" is prominently noted in the table of contents.By stripping away many graphics and images, the team created a clean new look that emphasizes the text, while enhancing the reading experience through original photography and illustration.The December 2019 issue inaugurates this new look, matching the power of the new design with a remarkable editorial collection. “How to Stop a Civil War” is a singular special edition devoted to explaining this particularly dispiriting moment in America, with essays confronting the question of eroding national unity by writers including Yoni Appelbaum, Andrew Ferguson, Caitlin Flanagan, Megan Garber, Tom Junod, former Secretary of State James Mattis, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Adam Serwer, and Tara Westover. “We don’t believe that the conditions in the United States today resemble those of 1850s America,” Goldberg writes in an introduction. “But we worry that the ties that bind us are fraying at alarming speed—we are becoming contemptuous of each other in ways that are both dire and possibly irreversible.”The Atlantic App: A Guide to IdeasThe Atlantic’s new iOS app is a curated, visual, and personal selection of news and ideas that adapts to a reader’s day. The “Today” tab, available without a subscription, reads like a newsletter/homepage/magazine hybrid, coming in carefully crafted editions while serving as a jumping-off point for the best of The Atlantic’s reporting and ideas of the moment. The design is bold, with whimsical visual cues throughout, such as handwritten greetings based on the current time of day for the reader (when read late at night, the app asks: “Still Awake?”).New features include: “Today,” a curated daily digest. Atlantic editors bring readers the stories that made them think. Exclusively available in the iOS app. Ad-free articles, now also available in Dark Mode. Offline reading. Save articles and download more than 150 archived magazine issues to read later. The Atlantic Crossword. Solve puzzles right in the app. An annual Atlantic subscription unlocks unlimited access to the app and TheAtlantic.com; monthly app subscriptions may also be purchased via the App Store.The app is the culmination of months of collaboration among the editorial, product, engineering, and growth teams, and will inform the next generation of The Atlantic’s digital platforms.###Media ContactAnna Brosspress@theatlantic.com

These genius translation devices will forever change the way you travel
In the Golden Age of Marie Kondo, tiny homes, and minimalist interior design trends, people are focusing their intentions on swapping out things for experiences, making traveling abroad more popular than ever. The shift — and the rise of the sharing economy — has proven that today’s travelers are seeking out more authentic experiences as they’re opting for AirBnbs rather than luxury hotels and planning their travel itineraries so they can fully immerse themselves within the local culture.  Even with the best intentions in mind and all the pre-trip research you can fit in, traveling to a country where you don’t speak the native language presents a roadblock in making the most out of your visit. Experiencing cultures different from your own and meeting the locals is part of what makes international travel so special, but communicating in a country where you don’t speak the same language can prove rather difficult.
