How to find the best Prime Day deals in the UK

How to find the best Prime Day deals in the UK

Prime Day kicks off on Oct. 13 this year, and then we've got Black Friday and Christmas shopping to tackle. The last few months of the year are going to be hectic, but there's also going to be plenty of opportunities to save big. We know that these major shopping events can be overwhelming, but there are steps you can take to make things go smoothly.

Firstly, you need to be prepared. You should make a plan, put a list together, and then wishlist these products and set deal alerts within the Amazon app. This way you'll be ready for when the prices drop. You should also familiarise yourself with how Amazon works, and how the site looks. These things might seem obvious, but they can save you a lot of time and hassle in the long run. Read more...

Trump refused to condemn white supremacists. The debate didn't get any better from there.

Trump refused to condemn white supremacists. The debate didn't get any better from there.

On Tuesday night in Ohio, Donald Trump told white supremacists to “stand by.”

Then he told his followers to “go into the polls and watch carefully.” 

There was a lot of noise in the first presidential debate of 2020. Trump lied. He was rude. Three old men yelled over each other. But if you're going to remember anything from this disaster, it's that the president of the United States refused to condemn white supremacy, and that he encouraged his followers to intimidate voters at the polls. 

Chris Wallace: "Are you willing, tonight, to condemn white supremacists and militia groups and to say that they need to stand down..."

Trump: "Proud Boys, stand back and stand by! But I'll tell you what, somebody's got to do something about antifa and the left." pic.twitter.com/4vrPocKzcu

Everyone agrees the first Trump vs. Biden debate was a total disaster

Everyone agrees the first Trump vs. Biden debate was a total disaster

The first 2020 presidential debate was a disaster. A shouty, incomprehensible, undercooked turducken stitched from the carcasses of a debate and a drunken Thanksgiving argument and a phone video of a racist shouting slurs on a bus. 

Moderator Chris Wallace spent several full minutes over the course of the 90-minute event literally begging President Trump to stop interrupting and talking over opponent Joe Biden as well as over Wallace himself, reminding him at one point of the terms his own campaign agreed on. An exasperated Biden at one point literally asked the president "Will you just shut up, man?" and later told him to "shush".  Read more...

Joe Biden spent the first debate staring into the camera like Jim Halpert

Joe Biden spent the first debate staring into the camera like Jim Halpert

Look out, Jim. There's a new reaction guy in town, and his name's Joe.

On Tuesday night, Joe Biden made his hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania, proud by spending the majority of the first presidential debate imitating another famous Scranton man: Jim Halpert.

As fans of The Office know, Jim is the go-to camera reaction guy in Dunder Mifflin's Scranton branch. His signature move is a look straight to camera, often accompanied by a smirk or a dumbfounded look — depending on the situation. And as the first debate unfolded, Biden essentially perfected Jim's famous reaction.

For those who missed the debate (or simply blacked out from stress and can't remember anything that happened) Donald Trump and Joe Biden had a tough time communicating. The two spent nearly 90 straight minutes talking over each other and moderator Chris Wallace, and at one point Biden got so frustrated with Trump's constant interruptions that he simply said, "Will you shut up, man?"

The angry Australian animal Australians are actually scared of

The angry Australian animal Australians are actually scared of

Australia has a reputation for terrifying, deadly animals, from brown snakes to redback spiders to buff red kangaroos that can disembowel you with their feet. Fortunately, most of these hell creatures will won't start anything if you just leave them alone. Unfortunately, magpies do not extend the same courtesy.

Also known as "spring" in the U.S., swooping season is in full swing in Australia, adding just one more reason for everyone to stay indoors right now. Every year from early August to late October, the Australian magpie loses its tiny feathered gourd and starts indiscriminately dive-bombing anything that comes within 50 to 100 metres (164 to 328 feet) of its nest, as seen in a video that went viral this week.

Biden asks Trump what everyone's thinking: 'Will you shut up, man?'

Biden asks Trump what everyone's thinking: 'Will you shut up, man?'

Joe Biden isn't moderating the first presidential debate, but he did have one very important question for Donald Trump: "Will you shut up, man?"

For those who aren't subjecting themselves to this extremely painful night of Men Talking Over Each Other. Here's what you need you need to know. 

Donald Trump appears to be incapable of having a normal back and forth, and instead of calmly and constructively debating he keeps interrupting Biden. This then leads to them loudly butting heads and speaking over actual debate moderator, Fox News' Chis Wallace.

At one point Trump yammered on so relentlessly that Biden snapped and asked what so many people have been wanting to say to Trump for years now: "Will you shut up, man?" Read more...

Hillary Clinton hitting a Zoom limit on TV is a 2020 mood

Hillary Clinton hitting a Zoom limit on TV is a 2020 mood

Even former presidential candidates have to deal with Zoom's time limits.

From office happy hours to college classes, the world has had to adjust to meeting virtually during the pandemic — even former Secretary of State, FLOTUS, 2016 presidential candidate, and feminist trailblazer Hillary Clinton. 

Clinton appeared on MSNBC ahead of the first presidential debate on Tuesday, declaring that Trump's "series is about to be canceled." Her insight, however, was interrupted by an all too familiar pop up: "Your meeting will end in 10 min." 

It seems that neither Clinton nor MSNBC upgraded their Zoom accounts for unlimited meeting time.  Read more...
