First ever HAUL blog!!!!!

Hello everyone!!!!!!!!! I am so pleased to post this today. This is a very different kind of blog; it’s something that I haven’t done before. I got this idea from lifestyle bloggers I have watched on Youtube, who post similarly for make up items and stuff like that. So, I bought a lot of books in the last few weeks and also, my mom returned some of the books that I had purchased a while back and left at her place. So, I have all of them with me now and I am ready to post a book haul! I am really excited for this blog! Have I said that already? Ok, anyway, I think, it will be a lot of fun! So let’s begin with the listing(in no particular order). So I bought these books mostly in the last few weeks, but the first one I am going to talk about is about a month old purchase, and the love for it is more than 10 years old.. it’s…    1.HARRY POTTER!!!! I have read, re-read and re-read HP like I don’t know, a million times. (Okay, not a million times, but you guys get the feel right?) I have been a crazy HP fan since like 14 years now. In fact, I was never much of a reader before that and read HP and got crazy about books, reading and writing. It brought literary breakthrough in my life and was the harbinger of whatever positive happened post that. Anyway, I never lost even 0.01% of the love and magic of HP and had read from library copies or those that my friend’s had. But I, this time when I felt that urge to read it again, I said to myself, this is the time, I have to get a copy of my own. And, so I did!! This is the how the set looks and I started reading it the day that I got it delivered!!! HP is love! HP Author: J.K. Rowling PublicationBloomsbury Press Link for purchasing: https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/1408856778/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=bhilasha-21&camp=3638&creative=24630&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=1408856778&linkId=894d89704ce1ca8ad68d2a3c605d12da Cost: I had purchased it at a discounted price of Rs. 2627. Although, the prices at various sites change with time, they try to keep it competitive.    2. Scion of Ikshvaku  (Book 1 – Ram Chandra series) Author: Amish Tripathi Publication: Westland Limited Link for purchasing:  https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/9385152149/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=bhilasha-21&camp=3638&creative=24630&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=9385152149&linkId=24488e031a3ff8774b6823ded7930385 Cost: Rs. 155 Scion_of_Ikshvaku_cover    3. Sita – Warrior of Mithila (Book 2 – Ram Chandra series) Author: Amish Tripathi Publication: Westland (29 May 2017) Link for purchasing: https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/9386224585/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=bhilasha-21&camp=3638&creative=24630&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=9386224585&linkId=24e90455c51bf264bbc43186ab3e3c84 Cost: Rs. 166 Sita_Warrior_of_Mithila_cover   I bought these two over a lot of hype that followed the release of Sita. Although, I have read another series by Amish Tripathi, called the Shiva trilogy and wouldn’t exactly call myself a fan, but, in the end, I caved in, hoping these ones are better and purchased them at discounted prices. These are fiction novels based on characters from Hindu mythology, which is interesting AF. So, hoping against hopes, I have bought them. Fingers crossed.         4.

AUTISM RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES FOR COMMERCIAL PROPERTY OWNERS BY LUCY WYNDHAM

Commercial properties ranging from shops and restaurants to places of work, such as offices, must comply with regulations set out in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). However, lawsuits are rising against non-compliant buildings while other groups are often ignored. The major focus for compliance is with physical accessibility which ranges from visual impairment to wheelchair access. Few, however, have been changed for those with autism. ADA, It’s Importance, and Areas of Coverage The ADA was created in order to allow more people to access public and commercial buildings including restaurants, retail stores, hotels, movie theaters, private schools, doctor’s offices, zoos, homeless shelters, and so on. Enforced by the Department of Justice, the ADA means all buildings must have adequate accessibility and safety provisions for people with disabilities. Meeting These Requirements Commercial property owners who follow the rules have nothing to fear from the ADA. The aim is to eliminate discrimination so means buildings first occupied after 1993 must be accessible. A quick assessment can be done to ensure there is suitable lifts, ramps, and other mobility solutions so anyone can come in, use, and leave the premises. It is best for landlords to adhere to the following tips: 1. Do not assume the building is automatically compliant – if it is not, there’s no excuse and there could be an expensive lawsuit 2. Negotiate all leases carefully and ensure that those you are letting the property to understand their responsibilities 3. Have the building inspected via a CASp professional 4. Understand all disabilities and accessibility/mobility issues – this should include those prone to sensory overload such as people on the autism spectrum Commercial Buildings and Autism It must be noted that in the ADA, few provisions are made for those on the autism spectrum. Study of this area was severely held back by poor research and thinking under Leo Kanner and his acolytes. Even today, the condition is misunderstood. While building owners look at solutions for the visually impaired, those with hearing impediments, mental illness, asthma, and mobility issues, they forget sensory overload. Buildings can be made, at least some of the time, more inviting for those on the autism spectrum. For example, some businesses have introduced autism hours where lights are dimmed, there are less shoppers, music is turned off or at least down, and checkouts are made quieter. These may sound like small things but for people who experience sensory overload, it can be the difference between staying home and braving a visit.

A 'bug' that let a $500 password cracking box open up iPhones is patched as of iOS 11

A video posted to YouTube by users EverythingApplePro yesterday shows a small $500 box unlocking an iPhone 7 locked with a short passcode. The box works on all iPhone 7 and iPhone 7+ models, as well as some iPhone 6 and 6S models and, unless you’re willing to wait an incredible amount of time, only works in a small subset of edge cases. 445 more words

Tech companies are on the offence against Nazis after violence

When white supremacists plan rallies like the one a few days ago in Charlottesville, Virginia, they often organize their events on Facebook, pay for supplies with PayPal, book their lodging with Airbnb and ride with Uber Technology companies, for their part, have been taking pains to distance themselves from these customers. 1,348 more words
