Stonewall – the largest lesbian, gay and bisexual equality charity in Europe – and SNOG Frozen Yoghurt have launched a joint campaign to celebrate 25 years of the lesbian, gay and bisexual equality charity and look forward to the next 25 years.The #FirstSNOG campaign, an online interactive photo exhibition, has been launched to celebrate Stonewall’s 25 years of campaigning so that lesbian, gay and bisexual people are free to love and be loved.The exhibition – which already features famous supporters of Stonewall including Harry Styles (One Direction), Rita Ora, Sam Smith, Nick Grimshaw, Calvin Klein, Florence Welsh, Boy George, Katy B – can be viewed here.An exclusive SNOG app, designed by Carri Munden of Cassette Playa, will be available to download from tomorrow for the general public to voice their support as well as upload their own #FirstSNOG picture. The app will be available to download from the SNOG website.Speaking on the collaboration and the brands support of Stonewall, SNOG founders Rob Baines and Pablo Uribe commented: ‘This year has been an exciting year for SNOG, we launched our first range that you can enjoy at home and we wanted to mark this by supporting a cause personal to our hearts – people’s freedom to SNOG who they want. You never forget your first SNOG and it should not matter who that is with. We admire and respect the work of Stonewall and are proud to be part of the 25th year celebration. We commissioned Cassette Playa as we loved the freedom and vibrancy of Carri Munden’s graphic sensibility and we are thrilled so many of the SNOG fans have got involved in the campaign.’Ruth Hunt, Acting Chief Executive of Stonewall, said: ‘In our 25th year we know that there’s still so much work to do. Around the world in countries like Russia, Nigeria and Uganda, LGBT people are being oppressed and persecuted simply because of who they are. We’re excited to collaborate with SNOG to help us continue to campaign for LGBT equality across the world.’As well as raising awareness, SNOG is helping Stonewall to raise funds via their London based shops where a special Stonewall serving, featuring a selection of rainbow coloured fruits, will be available for the duration of the Stonewall 25 celebration. A donation of £3 can be made to Stonewall by texting ‘SNOG’ to 70300, with proceeds going towards the charity’s continued international work.Stonewall has also launched a special website to celebrate everything that has been achieved over the last 25 years.
Michael Vick rumors that he will end up playing with the New York Jets next season are floating around the league like a Hail Mary pass.Just about the time Rex Ryan benched Mark Sanchez and elevated third-string Greg McElroy to the starting quarterback, bypassing second-string Tim Tebow, it was apparent next year’s Jets would have a new man at QB.Enter Vick. He’s almost assuredly out in Philadelphia, where the Eagles have turned the team over to rookie Nick Foles after Vick had a subpar year shortened by concussions.Sanchez, because of financial commitments, very well could remain with the Jets. But his abysmal play has killed any faith the team had in his ability to lead it to a championship. Tebow is almost certainly out, too, having been under-used by the team all season. He got only 70 snaps at quarterback and was rightfully angry and disappointed that Ryan chose McElroy over him to start the final two games.McElory could be a serviceable backup in the NFL. But if he is your starting quarterback, you are not a contender.So, Vick would be a place the team would turn, according to NFL.com sources. The website said Vick would be willing to play for the Jets, but only if he is the starter. It reported that Vick believe he has another four years of quality play in him.Vick would be due $17 million if the Eagles chose to keep him. They will not. Just two years ago, he signed a $100 million contract — the first player in NFL history to sign two deals at that milestone value. But his play has been shaky ever since the ink dried.He turned the ball over with alarming regularity early in the season and then could not stay healthy. The Jets would be even more of a circus with Vick at quarterback. Which means it very well could happen.

2 min read Once upon a time, serving bananas flambé — complete with fire leaping out of the pan — was an impressive way to end a dinner party. But soon, there could be an even crazier option: bringing your desktop 3-D printer to the table and serving up 3-D printed dessert made out of Nutella.Waterloo, Canada-based company Structur3D Printing has created a printer attachment called a “paste extruder” that works with most 3-D printer models and allows makers to create 3-D printed items with a variety of soft materials.Related: With $6.4 Million in New Funding, This 3-D Printed Insole Maker Is Looking HotA Kickstarter campaign for the tool launched today and has already surpassed its initial financial target. The team was hoping to raise $30,000 Canadian dollars (CAD) and, as of 2 p.m. ET, the team had already raised more than $32,500 CAD.The company intends to use the funds to produce at least 100 paste extruder units.With the attachment, which you get with a $249 CAD pledge to the campaign, you can print objects with silicone, polyurethane, wood filler, clay, ceramics, icing sugar, Nutella or conductive paint. The goal is to give inventors and makers the ability to use more than just plastic in their existing 3-D printers, allowing them to be more creative and save money as they experiment with prototypes. The plastic filament typically required in first generation 3-D printers is expensive.Related: Beyond Novelty: Architects in Amsterdam Are 3-D Printing an Entire House“There have been 3-D printers specifically designed to print different types of food or silicone. Our product is different, because we’re allowing you to make use of the printer you already have at home,” the Kickstarter campaign reads.The Discov3ry paste extruder is compatible with desktop 3-D Printers manufactured by MakerBot, Ultimaker and printrbot, among other popular brands.Related: 3-D Printers Take a Step Toward the MainstreamCheck out the video embedded below of the Discov3ry paste extruder being used with Nutella.

On day 1 of AWS re:Invent 2018, the team at Amazon released AWS Amplify Console, a continuous deployment and hosting service for mobile web applications. The AWS Amplify Console helps in avoiding downtime during application deployment and simplifies the deployment of the application’s front end and backend. Features of AWS Amplify Console Simplified continuous workflows By connecting AWS Amplify Console to the code repository, the frontend and backend are deployed in a single workflow on every code commit. This lets the web application to get updated only after the deployment is successfully completed by eliminating inconsistencies between the application’s frontend and backend. Easy Access AWS Amplify Console makes the building, deploying, and hosting of mobile web applications easier. It also lets users access the features faster. Easy custom domain setup One can set up custom domains managed in Amazon Route 53 with a single click and also get a free HTTPS certificate. If one manages the domain in Amazon Route 53, the Amplify Console automatically connects the root, subdomains and branch subdomains. Globally available The apps are served via Amazon’s reliable content delivery network with 144 points of presence globally. Atomic deployments In AWS Amplify Console, the atomic deployments eliminate the maintenance windows and the scenarios where files fail to upload properly. Password protection The Amplify Console comes with a password to protect the web app and one easily work on new features without making them publicly accessible. Branch deployments With Amplify Console, one can work on new features without impacting the production. Also, the users can create branch deployments linked to each feature branch. Other features The Amplify Console automatically detects the front end build settings along with any backend functionality provisioned with the Amplify CLI when connected to a code repository. With AWS Amplify Console, users can easily manage the production and staging environments for front-end and backend by connecting new branches. With AWS Amplify Console, one get screenshots of the app, rendered on different mobile devices to highlight layout issues. Users can now set up rewrites and redirects to maintain SEO rankings.
