Adobe Spark has been the brand’s relatively recent jump into a range of both online and mobile products that make it easy for anyone to create well-designed content including videos, web pages, and graphics.
For creatives that fancy themselves better image creators than designers of promotional flyers or small web experiences or for DIY small business owners, Adobe Spark hopes to fill in the gaps and make it both easy and fast to design range of content types for your business.
Today, Adobe released some much needed updates that mark the start of what Spark always should have been.
The four U.S. Air Force E-4B "Nightwatch" planes are designed to ensure continuity of government in the event of a surprise U.S. nuclear attack. In case of attack, the President, Vice President, or the Joint Chiefs of Staff would meet up with the E-4B at a secret location and assume control of remaining American nuclear forces. The E-4B would then fly a classified route over the United States, skirting obvious nuclear targets, theoretically staying in the air for days at a time with the help of Air Force midair refueling tankers.
Odd are, you’ve probably seen, heard of, partied, or even DJed one. The silent disco (or headphone party) is one of those novelty parties that first appeared about 10 years ago and has become a bit of a hit. Almost every major music festival in the world seems to now have a stage or tent completely dedicated to just silent partying.
Even so, there are many people who have still yet to experience this bizarre, wonderful thing. For many promoters, eliminating the noise of a party makes it way easier to get permits and go late – which might be a game changer for some. I’ve personally put on, managed, and DJed hundreds of silent disco parties all through North America in the past 5 years. For this DJTT article, I’ve written up my surefire promoter’s guide to throwing a silent disco event.
After a mass casualty shooting like the one that killed 59 in Las Vegas Sunday night, the NRA invariably turns to a playbook it has perfected over several decades, critics and supporters alike told POLITICO. The approach calls for aggressive fact-finding and long strategy sessions before any public statements. The Fairfax, Virginia-based organization has waited weeks before responding to past deadly incidents that NRA critics call the indirect result of its resistance to tighter gun control.
“They’re trying to figure out what happened,” said Richard Feldman, a former NRA lobbyist and author of the 2011 book “Ricochet: Confessions of a Gun Lobbyist.” The first priority would be to “learn what we can about the shooter,” Feldman added.
Since 1998, the National Rifle Association has donated $3,533,294 to current members of Congress. Explore below to see how much money has been donated to members of Congress in your state.
In one email obtained by the Post, Manafort asked, “How do we use to get whole?” Manafort’s spokesman tells the Post this means nothing, because “it’s no secret Mr. Manafort was owed money by past clients.” But the known contours of the relationship indicate just the opposite. It is not that Manafort was owed money. It appears Manafort owed the money.
Just as the voting polls prepare to open, reports of staffers quitting Hodges’ re-election campaign have surfaced.
Hodges’ communications director, Alex West Steinman, confirmed several staffers left the campaign, but says the campaign team is fully staffed.
A former staffer told Fox 9 two campaign workers allegedly resigned in the last few days because they weren’t being paid.
President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner has used a private email account to conduct and discuss official White House business dozens of times, his lawyer confirmed Sunday.
Kushner used the private account through his first nine months in government service, even as the president continued to criticize his opponent in the 2016 presidential election, Democrat Hillary Clinton, for her use of a private email account for government business. Kushner several times used his account to exchange news stories and minor reactions or updates with other administration officials.
Joshua Browder said he decided to create a free online chatbot over the weekend when he realized Equifax customers weren’t taking advantage of small-claims court at the state level. Instead of hiring an expensive lawyer and joining a class-action suit that could take years to resolve, people could “empower themselves,” he said.
Using the chatbot, he said, suing Equifax for thousands of dollars takes minutes, maybe less.
The latest tool in the battle against parking scofflaws is a device that looks as harmless as SpongeBob SquarePants but sticks to an offender’s car like a barnacle. Hence, its name: the Barnacle, a parking enforcement device that its inventors say could replace the steel boot.
Ridiculous that I was "asked" to unlock my iPad by TSA for a domestic flight from MSP-SEATAC. I refused. The TSA pushed, and I told a supervisor I would power it on, but nothing more without a legal order. They huddled, then allowed me to proceed "this one time" with my device secure and locked.
What the hell?
Poland Spring, the country’s best-selling bottled water, is “a colossal fraud,” according to a class-action lawsuit.
The lawsuit, filed last week in Connecticut, alleges that instead of spring water, parent company Nestle Water North America has been selling billions of gallons of groundwater to its customers.
“Not one drop of Poland Spring Water emanates from a water source that complies with the Food and Drug Administration definition of ‘spring water,'” the lawsuit states.
And, it goes on: “the famous Poland Spring in Poland Spring, Maine, which defendant’s labels claim is a source of Poland Spring Water, ran dry nearly 50 years ago.”

Among other allegations of links with the campaign, the dossier claimed that the Russian government has a tape of Trump getting prostitutes to urinate in front of him on a bed that Obama and wife Michelle had slept on at the Moscow Ritz-Carlton.
Trump has vehemently denied the allegations, including in an interview with The New York Times just last month.
“Now that was totally made-up stuff.... I know a lot about those guys, they’re phony guys,” he said. “They make up whatever they want. Just not my thing. Plus, I have witnesses, because I went there with a group of people.”
The former Happy Days star first came under fire after retweeting a meme that suggests the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary and the Charlottesville white supremacist rally were hoaxes devised by the government or completely faked.
"We’re sending more than 155,000 cans of emergency
drinking water to those affected by #HurricaneHarvey.
Stay safe everyone."
That was a tweet posted by Anheuser-Busch on Aug. 29. A day later, the company upped itself by announcing it would use its logistical resources to send additional truckloads — another 210,000 cans — to the flood-stricken area bringing its entire contribution to 410,000 cans.
This is enormously generous. But that’s not the whole story. What’s interesting is how it did it. Did the company just magically produce 410,000 cans of drinking water overnight? No. The beer-making giant didn’t stop operations to produce these cans. It has been making them all along, all throughout the year.
Its Cartersville, Ga. brewery halts production of beer throughout the year for the specific purpose of making and then storing canned drinking water that can then be quickly distributed as soon as there’s a request made by the Red Cross.
“Putting our production and logistics strengths to work is the best way we can help in these situations” said Bill Bradley, an Anheuser-Busch’s vice president in a statement.
The company has been doing this kind of thing for years. Since 1988, Anheuser-Busch says it has provided over 76 million cans of drinking water to aid disaster victims. Many companies, big and small, are pitching in to help victims of the hurricane.
But Anheuser-Busch is doing something different and has a philanthropic strategy that is worth emulating. Unlike most other businesses, this company doesn’t wait for a disaster to happen and then respond.
Instead, management plans ahead and does its charitable work throughout the year by making canned water well in advance so that the water is ready when a disaster inevitably occurs.
In the Twin Cities, police live in the cities where they work less often than in most other large American cities. Only about 5.4 percent of Minneapolis officers live in city boundaries, according to data obtained by MPR News from the Minneapolis Police Department. About 22 percent of St. Paul officers live within city boundaries, according to the City Council. The national average for large cities is about 40 percent residency.
While everyone’s personal financial situation is different, many consumers experience similar financial issues. Of the more than 1 million complaints we’ve handled since 2011, the top five types of complaints reported by consumers from all 50 U.S. states and D.C. are: debt collection, mortgages, credit reporting, credit cards, and bank accounts or services. We’re also sharing information you can use if you have issues that are similar to many other consumers.
Twenty-seven percent of complaints we received were about debt collection. Many of those are specifically about repeated attempts to collect a debt the consumer did not owe. Here are steps you can take if you’re contacted about a debt that you don’t owe, that’s not yours, or that you need more information about. We also have sample letters you can use to respond to debt collectors.
It reads like the script of a dream: the City of Light blinks beneath you as you sit atop the Eiffel Tower, awaiting the next course prepared by one of the world's great chefs.
This is scheduled to happen to President Donald Trump, and for him it could be a nightmare.
More than 2 million Americans with traumatic brain injury (TBI) are seen in hospital emergency rooms every year. Millions more skip a hospital visit despite suffering a head injury that could cause lasting damage, according to researchers.
In a study published Monday in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, scientists at the University of California in San Francisco found that a new experimental drug can restore normal function in mice following two types of TBIs.
Norms are entirely up to us — they exist only as long as there’s a consensus, even unspoken, to preserve them. Such consensus is probably as important as law to the functioning of a democracy. But it’s also fragile. We say that laws are ‘‘broken’’ — a definitive act of rupture. Norms merely erode, slowly, amid argument and equivocation about the significance of a breach, until they’ve been destroyed.
Simply put, if there’s a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family – this bill will do you harm. And small tweaks over the course of the next couple weeks, under the guise of making these bills easier to stomach, cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation.
Even insurance companies hate #TrumpCare:
"The draft bill does not expand coverage; it does not do enough to protect people in need of care; nor does it provide enough assistance to those who need help in paying for health care and coverage,” said Bernard J. Tyson, the chief executive of Kaiser Permanente, a California insurer that offers plans on the exchanges in eight states and in Washington.
If the Senate version becomes law, insurers could increase premiums for individual coverage by at least 20 percent more than the double-digit increases already under consideration. By 2020, other changes are likely to result in plans with much higher deductibles.
People now getting tax credits that allow them to purchase a policy with a deductible of $3,500 would get subsidies for a plan where the deductible would nearly double, without any funding to pay their out-of-pocket costs.
