10 Positive Parenting Mantras to Channel Your Inner Calm

My 3-year-old is eating peanut butter toast with banana for breakfast (his request), and we are officially running late for preschool. We need to get in the car soon if we want to miss the morning traffic, but he has decided that he no longer wants the food that he begged for 2 minutes earlier. What started off as a relatively calm breakfast has turned into a battle of wills over him taking a few more bites of food.

“You’re going to be hungry” I say, realizing immediately that he could care less. I can feel my frustration rising and even though I’m trying to stay calm, I’m getting snappy and irritable. In hindsight I can see so many opportunities that fell through the cracks to salvage this morning, but in the moment… there was nothing. Nothing I could do to stay calm, nothing I could do to get this tiny human to eat his food. Tantrums all around.

And all I could think was here we are again. I had cros...

White minimalist decor is the height of cool and sophisticated refinement. With all excess removed and focus set firmly on functionality, the result is sharp stylish living spaces like these four pristine examples. We’ll take a wander around one flat and flawless living room with a hidden kitchen and hideaway TV/media wall, and discover a barely there bathroom. Next we’ll feel our way around the curves of a softly minimalist living room, in a white home decor scheme with some colourful relief. Third up is a vision of concrete, stone and terrazzo with warm natural infusions, finishing up last but not least in a solidly monochrome minimalist moment.


How to activate dark mode for Instagram

Running Instagram in dark mode can help conserve power (as Google's research has revealed), it's easier on the eyes at night, the contrast can make text easier to read and perhaps most importantly, it just looks cool.

Developers have been scrambling to update their apps with new color schemes in recent months (Google Chrome, Facebook and Twitter have all received makeovers), and Instagram is one of the latest to gain the option.

However, enabling dark mode for Instagram isn't as simple as flicking a switch in the app, and it isn't yet available to everyone. As head of Instagram Adam Mosseri notes in a tweet, you need to be running the latest version of the mobile operating system – that is, Android 10 or iOS 13 – to enjoy the dark tones:

Starting today, you can use Instagram in dark mode on iOS 13 or Android 10. Turn dark mode on your phone to try it out.

Oscars 2020: Who Will Win Best Animated Feature?

The Academy Awards are always an exciting time for film buffs, and while many will be on the edge of their seat waiting to see who will win Best Picture, there is one medium that is, with occasional exception, not considered for that category: Best Animated Feature. 

While the core of visual storytelling is the same (performance, production design, cinematography, etc.) animation is unique in that every element must be produced from scratch. It’s no wonder most animated films take three or four years on average to make, but the results can be nothing short of magical. 

We believe the Animated Feature nominees deserve a closer look, and wish to shed light on the diverse pool of films hoping to snag that 2020 Oscar.
