The adorable Fiat 500 and 500e was discontinued in America for 2020. You can blame abysmal sales numbers for that, but the 2021 500e is rising from the ashes with a new rear door. Yes, the Fiat 500e is now a proper four-door coupe like the Hyundai Veloster. Unveiled recently by Fiat Brand President Olivier François at the Pinacoteca Agnelli … Continue reading

An increasing number of people are considering doing their own piercings during the pandemic – because clearly, they’ve never watched that wince-inducing scene in The Parent Trap. Searches for “home piercing kit” in the UK have increased 576% since the start of lockdown, while searches for “piercing ears at home” have increased by 244% and “how to pierce your own ear” by 133%.While some tattoo parlours and piercing salons are open, the work they’re able to deliver is restricted.Tattooists and body piercers are currently “strongly advised” not to tattoo or perform a body piercing that will bring them within the “highest risk zone” of their clients, according to the government guidelines. This means avoiding the area on the face, the throat and the front of the neck, where respiratory droplets caused by sneezing, coughing or speaking can pose a hazard from the client to the practitioner and vice versa. In case you need reminding, Daena Borrowman, from Jewellerybox.co.uk who conducted the analysis of search trends, says trying to pierce yourself at home, without proper equipment and health and safety, is “extremely dangerous”.“If you’re not careful you can shatter cartilage on impact which could leave you with irreversible lumps and increased chance of jewellery rejection,” she says. “Not only this, but your piercing can end up uneven, in the wrong place and of course, in the worst case scenario, infected.”It’s always better to go to an experienced and qualified piercer to get the safest and best experience overall, says Borrowman, even if that means waiting until after restrictions are lifted. “The rise in people piercing their own bodies is a concern and isn’t something we’d advise you do at home,” she says. “To be safe, you would at least need sterilising equipment and liquids, the professional needles, the right type of jewellery and gloves.”READ MORE: 10 Ways To Make Working From Home A Bit Cheerier Right Now 'I Expect A Manic Return': What Lockdown Is Like For Tattoo Artists Here's How To Get Up And Exercise Outdoors, Even If It's Cold, Dark And Wet

The coronavirus pandemic has forced most people to create an office space of their own – whether by devoting a room in our homes for work, sitting socially distanced in common areas or just creating a “Zoom worthy” corner in a bedroom. As a scholar who researches and designs learning and workspaces, I’m aware how the modern-day workplace was shaped over several centuries. But few people may know that the origins of the office can be found in the monasteries of medieval Europe. Early origin in monasteries Beginning around the fifth century, monks that lived and worked in monasteries preserved… This story continues at The Next Web

Huawei announced the Mate 40 Pro yesterday, and now we have one in hand. It might not be easy to recommend Huawei phones outside of China, since the Trump administration’s targeted sanctions have prevented it working with US companies like Google, but devices like the P40 Pro Plus and last year’s Mate 30 Pro have had hardware as impressive as anything else on the global smartphone market. The situation shouldn’t be any different with the new Mate 40 Pro. It’s likely to be Huawei’s most advanced device yet — even if there are still questions over the extent to which the company is actually able to manufacture it. I thought the Mate 30 Pro was the best-looking phone released in 2019, and the Mate 40 Pro builds on that design. The unit I... Continue reading…
