A selfie stick is used to take photographs or video by positioning a digital camera device, typically a smartphone , beyond the normal range of the arm. The sticks are typically extensible, with a handle on one end and an adjustable clamp on the other end to hold the device in place. Some are connected to a smartphone via its jack plug , while others are tethered using Bluetooth controls. The connection between the device and the selfie stick lets the user decide when to take the picture or start recording a video by clicking a button located on the handle. In contrast to a monopod for stabilising a camera on the ground, a selfie stick's arm is thickest and strongest at the opposite end from the camera in order to provide better grip and balance when held aloft. Homemade selfie sticks could date back as early as A photo from that year shows a man taking a photograph of himself and his wife, with the aid of a long pole which is pointed towards the camera and out of frame. Amateur box cameras of the period would not have been able to capture a self-portrait in focus when held at arm's length, requiring photographers to use remote shutter devices such as cables or sticks. A device which has been likened to the selfie stick appears in the Czechoslovak sci-fi film I Killed Einstein, Gentlemen. One character holds a silver stick in front of herself and another character, smiles at the end of the stick as it produces a camera flash, and immediately unfurls a printed photograph of the pair from the stick's handle.
I was on the phone to my mom saying, 'I feel like I can't breathe. I don't know what's going on. The "Last Christmas" actress said that her mom advised her to take a seat after Clarke started crying. I'm crying and crying, this guy's like, 'Can I get a selfie? Just having a minute,'" Clarke said, adding, "It was after a few moments like that where I was like, 'I don't know how to do this. According to Clarke, going forward, she's planning on refusing photos with fans, but will still autograph things for them. Who am I making it out to? This isn't the first time Clarke has been open about her struggles with her mental and physical health. Earlier this year, she penned an emotional essay for the New Yorker , in which she revealed she'd suffered two brain aneurysms while filming HBO's "Game of Thrones.
You'll get something that looks like this:. Now, of course, if you're attracted to Latinas or women who look like a Latina stereotype , then, well. The internet is a strange and beautiful thing in that it provides you with so much access to whatever it is that turns you on, be it a lady with red hair, a man with a mustache, or triplets sitting on plates of spaghetti in animal costumes. You do you. A problem arises, though, when a group -- particularly a racial or ethnic group -- is given a very specific sexual value online. Out in the real world, the term Latina can take on many nuances and meanings in conversation depending on context and who is speaking or being spoken to. Online, however, the currency of the word is very tightly linked with sex, either explicitly or more subtly read: descriptions like "fiery" or "spicy". The term becomes less a moniker for a diverse group, and more a subcategory of porn and cheesecake. Reclaiming the Latina Tag a Tumblr we've written about before as part of our "Tumblr of the Week" feature is addressing and combatting this reality by asking their readers to tag their posts with "Latina" -- a simple, impactful way of broadening, at least on one social network, the value and implications this term has online.
He's been in the medical field for over 16yrs and I didn't have a problem when we were dating 6yrs ago but since he proposed 2yrs ago I've been feeling very unsecured. My dear faithful LDS aunt married a good non-member man. I'd at least insist that at 12 the kids can choose to disaffiliate. When we started dating, he was in his fellowship. He really was awful to women and should've come with a warning sticker. He is also a bit too neat. Too bad she couldn't handle the guilt and remorse. In the end people have to make their own decisions. The church is very important to her.
