Japan’s Handy ‘Bra Liner’ Unsurprisingly Gets Shunned By Lusty Straight Guys

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 12:59

Japanese brand Bra Liner literally has women covered on days they have to dress more modestly. It certainly can’t please everyone though.

The newly-launched company’s innovative line of cleavage-concealing fabrics are perfect for warmer days, when putting on layers of clothing—even lighter apparels like tank tops and camisoles—seems out of the question.

The liners are triangular pieces of cloth that can be fastened to a woman’s bra straps, and can easily be detached to switch between office and date night looks. Essentially, they’re lifesavers for women everywhere.

Ahead of the designs’ launch, the ‘Bra Liners’ have already been praised by many Japanese women, who have expressed their excitement in purchasing them—but the products aren’t so much lauded by a different demographic.

Translated by SoraNews24, male Twitter users have responded along the lines of, “Why did you go and create something like this?” and, “This is the worst.”

Some even lambasted the company for “taking all the joy” out of summer, when people are more likely to dress lightly.

Seeing as how many shunned the less “sexy” redesign of childhood superheroine ‘She-Ra’, the reactions to Japan’s new ‘Bra Liners’ don’t really come as a surprise to women.

Netflix has given its user profile icons a makeover.

The streaming giant has bestowed its current icons with an updated look and added new options, including characters from your favorite shows such as Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black and Queer Eye. Users can select from a library comprising 100 different icons.

“Today we are announcing an evolution of profiles. The profile icons you’ve used for the last five years are getting a fun makeover. We’re also introducing a bunch of new icons—including some of the most beloved characters from Netflix shows and movies. Get excited, things are about to get a lot more personal,” the company announced on its website.

If you still very much prefer its existing icons including the ‘masked superhero lady’ or ‘man with mustache and glasses’, fret not. Netflix will continue to offer them, what’s more in enhanced colors.

This change is part of Netflix’s push to promote its very own original shows and help viewers feel more connected to their favorite films on the platform.

The new profile icons will roll out on Netflix’s website and across its mobile as well as television interfaces in the upcoming weeks.

Recently, the streaming giant redesigned its TV interface so users can browse through its list of movies and TV series with less hassle.

The Impact WordPress Has Had on the Web

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 12:41

WordPress recently celebrated its 15th birthday. Not only is it quite an achievement for anything web-related to last that long, it’s also impressive to see that the content management system is still at its peak relevancy.

That got me thinking about the impact WordPress has had on the web and specifically on web designers. Frankly, it’s hard to imagine the web without it. WordPress has become an essential part of many of our careers and has impacted the end user more than they might realize (it would be near impossible to spend a day web surfing without hitting on at least one WordPress-powered website).

In my view, WordPress has had the biggest impact of any single web application. Here’s why:

Solving the Early Struggle for Content Management

I’m old enough to remember web design in the pre-WP days. Content management in the 1990’s and early 2000’s wasn’t so easily accessible. Large companies had their own systems developed at a high cost. Meanwhile, the tools available to the masses were complicated to use and not always so flexible to design for or extend.

Because the existing CMS market was so difficult to navigate (and had no clear leader), many of us stuck with static HTML or built homespun systems that weren’t really up to the challenge. It led to sites that were difficult to maintain and, in the case of a cobbled-together CMS, lacked any sort of standards or portability.

What was lacking was a platform that could:

  • Handle various layouts and styles with ease
  • Allow developers to add functionality without losing it due to software upgrades
  • Enable content to be organized in a logical manner
  • Provide thorough documentation and best practices
  • Be used by both highly-technical and non-technical users

Not to say that some of those earlier systems didn’t have their own strong points. But, at the time, no one had put it all into one package.

Of course, WordPress didn’t do all of these things right out of the gate. But, over time, new features were added in that greatly extended the possibilities of what you could do with it. Piece by piece, an open source ecosystem was being built.

The Community

One of the key measures of an open source project’s success is the community that sprouts up around it. However you want define the term “community”, it’s clear that WordPress has an incredibly strong one.

We see it in the 55,000+ plugins in its repository, the scores of volunteers who write code or answer questions in the support forums. It’s evident in the various WordCamp events held around the world. It lives and breathes with the designers and developers who actively tout the CMS as a selling-point to clients. And let’s not forget the economy built around themes, plugins and other related services.

The truly amazing part about this community is not that it exists, but how it came into existence. There were no major ad campaigns shouting about what WordPress was capable of. Social media, although helpful in the community’s growth, was in its very infancy during the first several WordPress releases. No viral memes starring co-founder Matt Mullenweg were there to get the word out, so-to-speak.

Instead, the community grew organically, one member at a time. People tried WordPress and found that it met their needs. They learned how the software worked and passed that knowledge along to someone else who had a question in a forum or at a Meetup.

And, importantly, people realized that they could use free software to make a living. It helped to drive the growth of the community and WordPress itself. But capitalistic gain is only part of the story.

Just as crucial is the willingness of the community to share code and advice. There is definitely a “pay-it-forward” spirit that encourages users to stick around. After all, it’s much more fun to be a part of a culture of helping rather than one where everyone keeps to themselves.

Community is one of the biggest reasons why WordPress has become and remained the top dog for so long.

The Biggest Impact of All

Web professionals, in particular, have been impacted by WordPress more than any other tool, library or service I can think of. Personally, I wrote about how my career was changed by WP way back in 2012. As I write this years later, I’m really not sure what my business would look like had I not started experimenting with it. The question I ask myself is whether I’d even still be in the web industry at all.

For me, the biggest hurdle WordPress helped me clear was the one of self-doubt. I’d always been afraid of the skills I didn’t know and wasn’t confident in my ability to learn them. But the more that I used WordPress and became familiar with the treasure trove of available learning resources, I found myself actually able to absorb new concepts. There are still plenty of things I don’t know – but I’m much more confident that I can continue learning and adapting as times change.

Perhaps more than any one technological reason, the empowerment of both web designers and average users alike is what has made WordPress the most widely-used CMS on the planet – with no signs of slowing down at the ripe-old age of 15.

Regardless of whether or not you use or even like WordPress, the imprint it has left on the web is a unique one and impossible to deny. What started out as a simple tool for blogging grew over time to power everything from a teenager’s poetry blog to a Fortune 500 company’s sprawling home on the web. And it has been benefitted greatly from a community that has, time and again, come together to move things forward.

Certainly, WordPress isn’t the only option out there when deciding which CMS to use. But it has proven itself as a force unlike any other in the industry.

Motion Reveal Slideshow

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 12:24

Today we’d like to share another slideshow with you. The idea is to have a bit more of motion when navigating between the slides and showing another preview part with a fullscreen image. The inspiration for the effect comes from Louis Ansa’s beautiful design, “Paradis – Reprise”. The animations are powered by TweenMax.

The demo is kindly sponsored by monday.com: The visual project management tool for designers. If you would like to sponsor one of our demos, find out more here.

Attention: Note that we use modern CSS properties that might not be supported in older browsers.

The slideshow shows a medium sized image in the center of the page. The title is also prominently placed in the center:

When navigating to the next slide, we cover the current image with a reveal element that’s of the same color like the background of the page. The next image, which is initially covered, will be revealed. We add some translations to the elements to create a bouncy motion.

When the details arrow is clicked below the image, we slide the respective fullscreen image with its content up in the same uncovering fashion.

We hope you like this little slideshow and find it useful!

Who's Side Are You On?: Industrial Animated Workstation Desktop Environment

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 12:01

XFCE4 (5?) would benefit the most, being light on compositing and resources

I am on KDE5's side, KDE5 looks pretty clean cut as an industrial workstation DE, maybe catered to industrial animation

The heart of this conversation, sadly, is Wayland and how well developers and users coordinate its uses.

Any free browsers that provide full page translation like Chrome?

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 12:01

I’ve recently ditched Chrome for Firefox, and everything has been pretty plain sailing but one thing I’m really missing is the built in translation, that translates a web page in place.

Other than Chromium, are there any free browsers that provide this feature or an extension for it?

I’m currently using the Google Translator for Firefox plugin, but it opens the translation in a new tab, not in place, which doesn’t really work when I’m trying to translate a form or JS heavy site.

McDonald’s Misleading ‘Tokyo Roast Beef’ Ads Get Roasted By Japanese Government

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 11:38

Do you fancy thick, premium, juicy beef slices, similar to what’s conveyed in the ad above for McDonald’s Japan’s ‘Tokyo Roast Beef Burger’ and ‘Tokyo Roast Beef Muffin’?

Sadly, you won’t be able to find these in its aforementioned food offerings.

Japan’s Consumers Affairs Agency has served McDonald’s Japan an official disapproval and administrative order against its misleading advertising for the limited edition menu items, which were rolled out last summer.

The marketing for the burger and muffin included photos that showed a carving knife slicing into sizeable chunks of roasted beef, thereby suggesting that the brand was using high quality cuts for these food items.

In reality, however, more than 50 percent of the beef used comprised distinct cuts heat-fused together to ultimately imitate the form of roasted beef slices.

The brand’s television ad, in particular, received the most flak from the Consumers Affairs Agency, with the knotty visual opening the commercial at the one-second mark.

Even though the ‘Tokyo Roast Beef Burger’ and ‘Tokyo Roast Beef Muffin’ were only briefly sold until September 2017, the Consumers Affairs Agency has ordered McDonald’s Japan to inform customers that what had been advertised conveyed a different standard of quality compared to reality. It has warned McDonald’s Japan to refrain from issuing such deceiving advertisements moving forward.

According to the Consumers Affairs Agency, McDonald’s Japan is not required to make any monetary refunds to the 4.9 million customers who had purchased these ‘Tokyo Roast Beef’ sandwiches during their sales period.

McDonald’s Japan upholds that despite using processed beef for these sandwiches, the marketing does not indicate a variation in quality beyond what was actually provided.

Confused? Well, you’re probably not the only one.

The brand has acknowledged the warning and added that in future, it would use “accurate” and “easily understood language and imagery” in its advertisements.

Kit Kat Loses Rights For Its Iconic Chocolate Bar Design To Rivals Like Cadbury

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 11:37

For nearly two decades, Kit Kat envisioned wrapping its four fingers around the chocolate industry. Now, it has to loosen its grip.

The chocolate bar’s maker, Nestlé, has just been denied its 16-year-long appeal to trademark its iconic four-fingered shape by the European Court of Justice, making it acceptable for rivals to produce their own ‘Kit Kat’ lookalikes.

The verdict comes of benefit to direct competitor Cadbury, which fiercely contested Nestlé’s attempts to trademark the four-fingered bar. Cadbury is owned by Mondelez, and the latter makes a similar chocolate bar called ‘Kvikk Lunsj’ (pronounced “quick lunch”).

Just two years after ‘Kit Kat’—formerly known as ‘Rowntree’s Chocolate Crisp’—reached the masses in 1935, Mondelez debuted ‘Kvikk Lunsj’. For the most part, the two chocolate brands had a relatively peaceful relationship—until Nestlé decided to defend its ‘Kit Kat’ shape in 2002.

Interestingly, Nestlé was approved of the rights to the ‘Kit Kat’ shape in 2006, but the decision was retracted, and then it flung back and forth.

In 2016, a lower EU court ordered that if Nestlé wanted ownership of the design, it had to prove that ‘Kit Kat’ was recognizable in all EU countries. No evidence was available for Belgium, Greece, Ireland, and Portugal, reported the BBC.

Nestlé, Mondelez, and even the European trademark office weren’t receptive to the decision.

Nestlé debated that if it had to prove that the four-fingered chocolate bar shape was synonymously ‘Kit Kat’ in all states, then no brand would be able to pass the standard.

Mondelez, on the other hand, rebutted that ‘Kit Kat’ did not have “distinctive character” anywhere.

The top court eventually ruled on Wednesday that proving a product’s distinctiveness in “a significant part” of the EU wasn’t enough—it had to be recognized by all markets.

In spite of the ‘Kit Kat’ slogan, Nestlé is not going to have a break. A spokesperson responded that the verdict was, “not the end of the case… We think the evidence proves that the familiar shape of our iconic four-finger ‘Kit Kat’ is distinctive enough to be registered as an EU trademark.”

World Press Photo Gets Flak After ‘Poverty Porn’ Photos Spark Heavy Criticism

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 11:37

Image via Shutterstock

A photographer’s recent takeover of the World Press Photo’s Instagram has garnered major criticism for its insensitivity and has even been dubbed as “poverty porn.”

The series of images, posted to the account on Sunday, 22 July, are part of the World Press Photo’s ‘Instagram Takeover’ by Italian photographer Alessio Mamo.

They are part of Mamo’s photo series called ‘Dreaming Food’, which features poor Indian children from rural villages covering their faces with their hands, while standing behind a table ladened with mouth-watering food.

Mamo aims to highlight the severe poverty crisis in India, and posted these photos with the caption, “These photographs are from Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh two of the poorest states of India. From the series ‘Dreaming Food’, a conceptual project about hunger issue in India.”

The images received flak not only on Instagram, but also on Twitter, with feedback describing the project as “cruel,” “exploitative,” and “unethical.”

Award-winning journalist and photographer Lauren Wolfe, who has written for publications including The Atlantic and The New York Times, commented on Twitter, “This photographer brought his own fake food to put in front of these starving children in India. He asked them to dream about what kind of food they wanted to put on the table. This is an example of #journalism with no moral compass. @WorldPressPhoto why are you supporting this?”

In wake of the critique, the World Press Photo Foundation responded with a statement explaining that the photographers were “responsible for selecting their work to show and writing their captions.” They are given a set of guidelines to adhere to and as such, photographers have to “respond directly to the audience when questions arise.”

This response did not sit well with many, including ZUMA Press’ editor Jim Colton, who called the statement released by World Press Photo “bullshit.” Colton added that the images were “exploitative” due to the fact that the images were “set up by the photographer” and are not representative of credible photojournalism.

Colton expressed his disappointment with how World Press Photo handled the ethical questions that were posed and in turn, threw the responsibility wholly back to the photographer.

Mamo released a statement following the backlash and apologized to those who were offended by his project. He clarified that it was not his intention to discredit anyone.

See the photos inside World Press Photo’s Instagram album directly below.

These photographs are from Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh two of the poorest states of India. From the series "Dreaming Food", a conceptual project about hunger issue in India. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ [This project has been the subject of much online debate. Please read Alessio Mamo’s statement, released on 24 July 2018, giving more details and apologising for any offence: https://medium.com/@alessio.mamo/my-statement-on-dreaming-food-7169257d2c5c] ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My name is Alessio Mamo (@alessio_mamo) an Italian freelance photographer based in Catania, Sicily. In 2008 I began my career in photojournalism focusing on contemporary social, political and economic issues. I extensively cover issues related to refugee displacement and migration starting in Sicily, and extending most recently to the Middle East. I was awarded 2nd prize in the People Singles category of #WPPh2018 and this week I’m taking over World Press Photo's Instagram account. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Despite economic growth, a majority of the Indian population still lives in extreme poverty and disease. Behind India’s new-found economic strength are 300 million poor people who live on less than $1 per day. Government figures may indicate a reduction in poverty. But the truth is, with increasing global food prices, poverty is spreading everywhere like a swarm of locusts. These pictures are taken in rural areas where conditions are worse than in the cities and where close to 70% of India’s population reside today. Statistics show that 2.1 million children under 5 years old die of malnutrition annually. The idea of this project was born after reading the statistics of how much food is thrown away in the West, especially during Christmas time. I brought with me a table and some fake food, and I told people to dream about some food that they would like to find on their table. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #WPPh2018#asia #dreamingfood #india

Apple Consumers Report Fraudulent iTunes Transactions, Some Totaling US$5,000

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 11:37

Image via Natee Meepian / Shutterstock.com

Apple Singapore has found itself prey to fraud via hacking.

According to Channel News Asia, dozens of Apple customers across Singapore recently experienced sham credit charges via their iTunes accounts. Apple Singapore is currently investigating the issue.

Two users revealed they had lost at least S$7,000 (US$5,151) each. One victim told Channel News Asia that she became aware of the situation when she received a text from bank HSBC, informing her that she had “less than 30% of credit limit” remaining.

Those who were affected are said to be holding accounts with various banks including UOB, Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation (OCBC) and DBS.

According to Vincent Tan, OCBC’s Head of Credit Cards, the company had noticed atypical transactions across 58 cardholders’ accounts. These victims confirmed them to be fraudulent transactions through iTunes, and the company is placing necessary counter-measures to prevent such incidents from occurring again.

UOB also mentioned that it will keep an eye on all of the expenditure done through iTunes due to this surge in fraudulent activity.

According to The Straits Times, one particular user who had not purchased any Apple products or services for the last five years found more than S$4,400 (US$3,235) deducted from her DBS account on 11 July. She also received a text from DBS bank, saying that her card had been blocked.

She was told by an Apple customer service officer that no transactions were made on her Apple account, but her debit card had been used by a phony iTunes account. Apple Singapore immediately banned the account and DBS refunded a partial amount to her.

Apple Singapore is currently “looking into the matter,” and is also helping affected users through its support page, which shares the necessary steps that can be taken with regards to these problematic iTunes purchases.

How to define caching for OutboundPathProcessor

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 10:57

I've got a customized OutboundPathProcesser that adds GET parameters to URLs starting from a specific node type targetting a specific node id. Basically whenever I'm on a node of type product, I add the node id as GET Parameter to all URLs leading to my enquiry node.

A simplified version of my code is below.

public function processOutbound($path, &$options = array(), Request $request = NULL, BubbleableMetadata $bubbleable_metadata = NULL) { $node = $request_stack->attributes->get('node'); if ($node->bundle() == 'product') { if ($path == $enquiryNodePath) { $options['query']['product_id'] = $node->id(); } } }

This mostly works, especially for enquiry links inside the full view of my products. But for enquiry links in menu blocks, the parameters are cached: When starting on a product page after cache clear, the GET parameters is appended on every page, when starting on a normal page, the GET parameters is never appended.

I greenly tried to add caching similar to LanguageNegotiationUrl:

public function processOutbound($path, &$options = array(), Request $request = NULL, BubbleableMetadata $bubbleable_metadata = NULL) { $node = $request_stack->attributes->get('node'); if ($node->bundle() == 'product') { if ($path == $enquiryNodePath) { if ($bubbleable_metadata) { $bubbleable_metadata ->addCacheContexts([ 'url.path', ]); } $options['query']['product_id'] = $node->id(); } } }

But this totally destroyed my site, it somehow corrupted the router table and even after disabling my module I was no longer able to rebuild the router table. I had to restore my site from a backup to fix the WSOD.

How do I correctly I make my OutboundPathProcessor / menu blocks cache-aware of the current node id?

(I do NOT want to disable caching for menu block with something like max-age=0)

I dont seem to find much information regarding this, has anyone done it? Does the Drupal CDN module work with google? Or is it only for drupal deployments on their cloud?
