Starbucks Coffee Boycott: Why We Need to Reclaim Safe Spaces

I thought the Syrian Airstrikes would be the news highlight from last week. Sadly, I was wrong.

R1Day7: Playing with Flexbox Froggy

My #100DaysofCode R1ReDo has been moving slowly, but at least it’s moving. I tried out CSS Grid Garden in January. However, I put my coding aside to deal with a health issue. Now that I’m recovering on medical leave, I’m more determined to be consistent with learning how to code. (Well, at least for these next two weeks.) Today, Day 7, I decided to play around with Flexbox Froggy. Then, I worked on my JavaScript tutorials on FreeCodeCamp.org. I needed to review the basics before I started working on my projects again.

Video: Charging iPhone with 9-Volt Battery

The thrill of “thundersnow” wore off quickly once I lost power this evening. It went off just when Coronation Street’s Pat Phelan was lying to his project manager about Eileen being sick. I heard a boom, and then my Roku shut off. There would be no relaxing with BritBox tonight. Well, now I’ll spend time charging my phone and iPad instead of enjoying television.

Anyway, I figured I’d better do something useful with my phone while it was still charged. That’s when I remembered reading on Twitter about charging your cell phone with a household battery. This was the first video I found, and it looks easy. It uses a 9-volt battery. However, I’m sure there are videos about using other batteries.

Good luck and stay safe.
