These women are raising their voices and standing up against gender-based violence we face on a daily.

First Look at SnapGroups: A Delightful Tool For Lightweight Discussion

first_imgRelated Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Update:Just after we posted this, Fletcher says he’s lifted the password from the site and it’s live! SnapGroups makes it really easy to create a group discussion around a particular topic, invite people, set variable privacy controls and then participate in that conversation as part of a whole “newsfeed” style stream of updates from all your various groups in one place. Fresh comments, likes and dislikes get pushed to your browser live using a home-made bit of AJAX and the whole thing couldn’t be much simpler. It’s a lot of fun to use, in fact.Fletcher says this is only the beginning, that all kinds of features are still to come, but he’s focused on the basics for now. He started working on the site in October and says his favorite part of the project was “learning about the new technologies that have sprung up in the past couple years.” “The various databases that have come out recently are great,” he told us. “I’m using Mongo, but there are many interesting projects now.” The core of the site is written in C++.Fletcher says SnapGroups will go live tomorrow morning. You should try it out when it does. Invites to groups will no doubt be flying around Twitter and Facebook. It may very well become something you want to use regularly. Hopefully there will be a way to export your conversations easily. Fletcher is a pretty straightforward guy and will probably implement just about anything that enough people ask for and that isn’t too hard to do.Mark Fletcher has a habit of building relatively simple things, like the first major email list system and the first popular RSS reader, that end up being a defining player in the rise of a new era online. Simple, real-time group communication? Not at all hard to imagine that being a big new thing as well. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Mark Fletcher builds software, that’s just what he does. He may have sold the system that became Yahoo Groups for $400 million, and then made millions selling Bloglines to Ask.com as well, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to stop making software. And it’s not just any software he makes, either. Those two projects changed millions of peoples’ lives.Tomorrow morning Fletcher will unveil his newest creation, a lightweight group communication tool called SnapGroups. We first wrote about it two weeks ago but hadn’t been able to take a look until tonight. We’re happy to report that you’re probably going to like it a lot: it’s easy, it’s clear, it’s got good social design and it’s real time. Check out the screenshots below.

Sport soft and pretty skin

first_imgI have severe cracks on my heels. Even regular pedicures don’t help. What’s the cause and what can I do? -Deepa, HyderabadCracked heels are a problem for those who have naturally dry skin. The thickened dry skin around the heel that we call callus usually cracks due to mechanical factors that put increased pressure on that area (eg. the way you walk).Other factors include: prolonged standing; being overweight; open sole shoes; medical conditions like autonomic neuropathy (in diabetics). Skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema also cause dryness. To get rid of the ugly cracks, wash feet with warm water and soap, twice a day. Scrub the heels and soles with a gentle scrubber or pumice stone after lathering up with soap. Massage with moisturising cream after washing your feet just before hitting the bed and wear socks.I am 24 years old and have dry skin. Can face washes dry out my skin further? Should I use cleansing milk instead? -Chandra, KolkataDry skin tends to be thinner and more susceptible to rashes, especially from harsh cleansers. It’s important to find a cleanser that removes dirt and make-up thoroughly. Cleansing milks are modified moisturiser formulations without surfactants-the active cleaning ingredients of soaps and face washes-which remove dust and grime effectively.You need to use cleansing milk if you are exposed to pollution, dust, etc., for more than half an hour every day and also use make-up. The best way is to put cleanser on a soft facial tissue and clean your skin thoroughly. Finish by washing your face with warm water and a gentle face wash. Try: Toleriane Fluid, Toleriane by La Roche-Posay, Cetaphil Cleansing Lotion and Uriage Crme Lavante.advertisementDr Rekha Sheth is a leading cosmetic dermatologist.
