A former Facebook executive raised $3.7 million to fund a game aiming to match the success of 'Pokémon Go'

Former Facebook employee Nikki Lannen has raised €3.3 million ($3.7 million) to fund the development of a new augmented-reality game at her startup WarDucks. The funding round was led venture capital firm EQT Ventures and will help get the new location-based game off the ground in 2020. Lannen left her job at Facebook in 2013 to launch WarDucks, which aims to make its titles "fun" rather than "super-realistic." Former Facebook executive Nikki Lannen has raised nearly $4 million to create a n...

Any folks on here living the RV or Van Life Full Time

I really enjoy looking at ways to improve the Gem Top Canopy on the back of my old 2wd F150. Youtube has TONS of videos of how folks are living in them full time.. How they've modified their trucks (or vans) (or travel trailers) to live what could best be as a Pre TEOTWAWKI lifestyle. Tonight I was looking over ways for making money while out there and while a decent wi-fi connect is a priority, so is a decent laptop that will run the software you're using. I actually use a legal version of ...

Summer Lovin’ Had Me a Blast; Summer Lovin’ Happened So Fast

This post originally appeared on Nomadic Chick. It all began, fittingly, on the first day of summer with a game called ‘tangled’, where everyone puts their hands in the center of a circle, grabs two random people’s hands and then proceeds to untangle themselves to make a circle as this is “team-building” and “creates friendships”. It was our first day as counselors at an American summer camp in up-state New York and we were wondering just what we had gotten ourselves into. In the fray of hand g...

REVIEW: Haagen-Dazs Spirits Collection Ice Cream (U.S.)

Judging from the length of their corresponding aisles at the grocery store, it’s no secret that Americans love alcohol and ice cream. Despite this, mergers between the two seem rare with mainstream brands. Befitting of the most drunken-sounding ice cream brand, Haagen-Dazs has risen to fill this void of boozy frozen desserts with the release of its new Spirits Collection. Each pint features a different variety of popular liquor, paired alongside indulgent mix-ins, and Haagen-Dazs’ famously ric...

On sluts and slatterns

Here is another attack on sl-words, a continuation of the one celebrated last week (“The sl-morass”). There, I mentioned the fact that a word beginning with sl– tends to develop negative connotations. My example was Engl. slim, as opposed to German schlimm “bad.” Another example (one of many!) is slight. In the Old Germanic languages, including Gothic, which was recorded in the fourth century, the word meant “smooth,” perhaps “slippery.” (Incidentally, to slip is also a verb of questionable ante...

Solo Female Travel in England, Scotland, and Wales — A UK Guide

I have spent a LOT of time traveling alone in England, Scotland, and Wales. Much more than I originally intended. I went to Europe without a plan, ended up living for months at a time in two different cities in England, and used them as a base to explore the country. I never thought the UK would become one of my most extensively traveled countries. At the time, I was more interested in warmer, sexier, more exotic travel destinations — the UK seemed so boring compared to Thailand or Italy or Sou...

Prayers and a cup of tea as Britain approaches Brexit deadline

Churches across Britain and Ireland are preparing for next week’s Brexit deadline, whether it is met by a deal, no deal, or a delay, by offering prayers for the nation and the region. The Church of England is also encouraging community conversation over a cup of tea. The Anglican Communion News Service reports: Churches are being encouraged to host “informal café-style meetings” over the weekend of 30 March “to bring together people of all standpoints and encourage open discussion.” The Archbish...

Most popular whiskeys in the world

Whiskey is one of the world’s most beloved spirits. It’s both sipped neat and mixed into cocktails, savored and taken as a shot alongside a pint of beer. With this level of universal popularity, it should come as no surprise that countries around the world make the spirit. Each does things a little differently, making exploring the world through a dram or glass all too easy to do. Quick note: America, Ireland, and Mexico use the spelling “whiskey.” Everywhere else goes with the English spelli...
