How to Get Rainbow Flag Reaction on Facebook (Pride)

Facebook has added a new rainbow flag reaction to its social network for a limited time so users can celebrate Pride month. So if you are wondering how to get Rainbow Flag Reaction on your Facebook Accounts. You are at the right place.


The flag, which has been a symbol of the LGBT community since 1978, joins the thumbs up and heart signs as well as excited, shocked, sad and angry emoji as a way to react on Facebook.

But Facebook's addition isn't immediately available to all Facebook users, which has sparked controversy among people on social media.

The rainbow flag reaction will only appear as an option for users if they like Facebook's LGBTQ page.

How to get rainbow flag reaction on Facebook

  1. Log in to Facebook using the app or on the web
  2. Go to the LGBTQ@Facebook page
  3. Like the page
  4. You might need to log out and log back in again before the reaction appears
The page is the "official LQBTQ resource page for Facebook" and was set up in 2008. It has 14.1 million likes and shares news and information regarding LGBTQ rights and events.

Some users asked if Facebook would consider making the reaction available permanently. It said it is "continuing to bring you the most relevant experiences for the moments you care about" and asked users to provide feedback on its site.

Watch Video Below:



As well as the flag reaction, Facebook has added a new banner that users can place on their profile pictures.


How to add the Pride Banner or Frames on Facebook

  1. Log in to your Facebook account
  2. Go to facebook.com/celebratepride
  3. Select the Pride banner you'd like to add and the time you'd like to have it for
  4. Click "Use as Profile Picture"
As you can see on the below image, Google is also celebrating Pride month with the addition of the rainbow flag on LGBTQ-related searches.

We are listing down some tips you can follow to tighten up Facebook account security. You don’t necessarily have to apply these security measures, but if you are concerned about your account’s security and don’t want to take any risks, then follow these tips:

How to Secure your Facebook account


1. Add a Phone Number:
Adding a phone number is one of the best ways to secure your account. It will let you easily recover your account even if your email is hacked and also let you use Facebook’s 2-step verification. To add a phone number, go to Facebook Settings and head to “Mobile” settings from the left menu and click on “Add a Phone”. Now, just follow the instructions to add and confirm your phone number.



2. Add Login Approval Security
Login Approval Security is the 2-step verification process of Facebook that will let you login to Facebook with your password and also a code sent to your phone. To set it up, go to Facebook

Phishing Sites: Hackers can create a fake Facebook login page and when you enter your details there, it will be sent to the hacker instead of Facebook. Phishing attempts are usually made through emails and other modes of communication. If an untrusted person gives you a link to access Facebook through it, don’t do it. Your browser may also give a warning to not enter.

READ ALSO: How to Download Facebook videos on Android

Keyloggers: Keyloggers are software that can log the keystrokes you make on your keyboard, therefore stealing your username, password and other sensitive info when you type it. Usually they are installed with shady programs, but hackers can remotely install it as well, if they get access to your PC. Thus, use a good antivirus program to identify and stop keyloggers and try to use password managers like Lastpass to automatically enter passwords instead of typing them with your keyboard.

Never Give up your Password: Many scams may ask for your Facebook login details in order to give you gifts, game coins and other incentives. Never give up your information even if a so-called Facebook employee asks for it.

Change Password: change your password anytime you think or experience a suspicious activities or log on your Facebook account. I recommend changing your password twice in a month. Depending on how often you use your Facebook Account.

Avoid writing Down your password: Never write your Facebook password or login details on a notebook or a text file on your phone. If you have to do so, keep the notebook away from people or friends. For the text file make sure it is hidden on your device when you want to use it then unhide.

Nokia 9 is out with 8GB Ram and 835 snapdragon processor


We all know that Nokia 9 is one of the most anticipated phones this summer and in short of all 2017. Recently, the most anticipated phone Nokia 9 spotted with 8GB of RAM, Snapdragon 835 processor.





Nokia 9 Spotted With 8GB Of RAM, Snapdragon 835 Processor

The Nokia 9 is one of the most anticipated phones this summer and in short of all 2017, will have an exceptional technical sheet, which seems to be declined the Nokia 9 model with 4GB of RAM. It seems that the versions of Nokia 9 will aim higher than expected, now we will know why.

Just last week we knew that the Nokia 9 had gone through the FCC, the North American certification that revealed that the new device was very close to being introduced, and thanks to which we have also known that would dispense with the 4GB version.

The Nokia 9 will arrive with 6GB and 8GB of RAM

The Finnish company Nokia is very clear, and they seem determined to create a new flagship as far as possible from the conventional. We refer to it because as we know now, HMD Global, the company behind Nokia, which in a note to the US authorities has asked to cancel the model TA-1004 we saw in the certification last week and replaced By TA-1012. On the other hand, in Geekbench we saw this TA-1004 with 4GB of RAM, which would lead to think that Nokia has canceled this version, which is not going to arrive in the market.





The logical thing is to replace it with some of the versions of Nokia 9 that we have already seen go through Geekbench with 6GB and 8GB of RAM, pointing very high to this basic feature to have a fluid multitasking. As you know the majority of manufacturers are offering for their top of range 4GB of RAM as standard, while 6GB and 8GB are basically spreading in Asia, especially in China. So, taking into account this information, it seems that Nokia’s intention is to create a flagship with 6GB and 8GB of RAM options.

At the moment it remains a mystery and the date of presentation of this Nokia 9, we only know that the company anticipated that Nokia 9 would arrive during this summer and that the passage through the FCC is a previous and imminent step for the mobile to be marketed. From the Nokia 9, we expect in addition to this RAM the Snapdragon 835 processor, the most powerful at the moment, a large screen with QHD resolution, and a camera with Carl Zeiss optics, which could be dual with 13-megapixel sensors.

16 Quick car maintenance check

Hello and welcome to this article about car maintenance checks you need to know about. If you have red my
About page, I said I'm an Automobile Engineer so, I'm not too good but I know a bit about care maintenance. So without wasting much time.



The most important car maintenance check , is to stick to your manufacturer's advice on servicing. Your handbook will tell you when a service is due and exactly what's needed – just make sure you book your car into the garage promptly.

The second is to do your own simple car maintenance checks.

16 Car Maintenance Checks You Need To Be Doing


1. Tyres

Every two weeks, check your tyre pressures and the condition of your tyres (including the spare). Look out for cuts or wear and make sure your tread is within legal limits.

2. Alingnment

Always go for alignment when necessary or when you experience a waving movement while driving your car. If you find it difficult to make a U-Turn, just go for alignment of your steering and it will be solved. Go for alignment if your car is not moving straight forward.

3. Wheel Balancing

Always go for wheel balancing when necessary or when you experience or think one or two of your tyres are jumping or shaking while driving. Wheel balancing prevents your tyres from burning or eating one sided. Replace tyres that have swelled up with new ones.

4. Brake Pads:

Check your brake pads as often as possible. Change them when necessary. Don't wait until you hear a sharp noise between the pads and disks before you change them. I recommend using a fibre brake pads than using an iron brake pads.

5. Brake Fluid or Hydraulic

Always check your brake fluid or hydraulic as often as possible and refill them if possible. Check if there is a leakage at any of the 4 tyres, if there is a leakage consult your engineer to get rid of it.

6. Toolkit

If your car has a spare wheel, then at the very least you need to carry a jack and wheel removing tools (plus a locking wheel nut key if appropriate).

7. Engine oil

Use your dipstick to check oil levels every couple of weeks, and before any long journey, and top up if needed. Pop your car back to the garage if you're topping up more than usual.

8. Water

Every week, while your engine's cold, check your coolant level is between the MIN and MAX marks.
Seasonal tip: before the cold weather sets in, get your anti-freeze checked and topped up, if required.

9. Fans

Check your car radiator fans. Always make sure your car fans are working to avoid overheating which will burn your car top gasket. If you car is use thermostat make sure it's working properly or connect your fans automatically.

10. Windscreen wipers

Replace your windscreen wipers once a year to prevent smearing.

11. Screenwash

By law, your screenwash system must work. Keep it regularly topped up with a good screenwash additive  – one that prevents it from freezing, and clears oily grime.

12. Windscreen

Keep an eye out for stone damage and, if you spot any chips, get them repaired as soon as possible (they can grow and crack if left alone).

If the damage can't be repaired, or it's in a place where it could distract you, your windscreen may need to be replaced.

13. Lights

Check all your lights – including indicators, reversing lights, brake lights and fog lights – once a week. Look out for blown bulbs and cracks or dirt on the lenses.

14. Power steering

Make sure your garage fills your hydraulic fluid reservoir when they service your car. Then all you have to do, once a month, is check its levels; if necessary, you can top up with a recommended fluid.

15. Bodywork

Give your car panels an occasional once-over for any damage, or signs of rust.

16. Fuel Pump

Check and change your fuel pump whenever your experience or thinks your car movement is slow or you car doesn't move or accelerate the way it should when you want to overtake another vehicle. Change your fuel filter when necessary.

These quick car maintenance checks are all fairly straightforward, but if you'd rather not do them yourself, pop into your local garage.I

25. If you have a major repair to do, it's wise to get at least 3 estimates, if possible, before you decide.

26. Read and follow your car owner's manual - it's your car's bible for making your car last longer.

27. Whether you are a man, woman, boy or girl, learn to do some routine maintenance on your car yourself. A multitude of books, videos, magazines and classes are available at your local library that will teach you for free if you don't know. Learn how to check your own oil, transmission fluid, tire pressure and coolant, etc.

28. If you find a good mechanic who you can trust, stick with him even if his prices are a bit higher - all things being equal. You'll always save time, money and aggravation in the long run.

29. Don't race or gun your engine when you start it up.
Accelerate slowly and smoothly when your engine is cold.

30. Avoid burning rubber - it places excessive wear on the transmission, rear end, not to mention your tires.

31. An international tire company estimated that 33% of all tires on the road are under-inflated (low air). Under-inflated tires wear out quicker and have a tendency to blow out easier.

32. A garaged car lasts longer. A car port is next best, and a car cover is a distant third.

33. Avoid jackrabbit starts and stops. Stop and accelerate gradually.

60. Regular oil changes are the most important thing you can do to protect your engine and make it last longer.

Why You Should Slow Down on Soda In-Take

Many Nigerians can’t do one meal without driving it down with a can of their favorite soda . Sometimes , it is what gives them he determination to eat at all. However , experts have no qualms about people taking one soda once in a while , but a significant daily intake is the bone of contention .

soda

» Your teeth : Taking too much soda will on the long run have a negative effect on your dental health aspect because the sugar content and acidity of soda can destroy your teeth . This is so because , Soda contains phosphoric acid and is well known to interfere with the body’s ability to absorb calcium .

» Belly fat : The high sugar content of soda has been conclusively linked to an increase in abdominal fat -which is dangerous, as this is where many vital organs are.

» Exhaustion and fatigue : Soda most often contain 48 spoonfuls of sugar. The body usually contains only two teaspoons of sugar, which makes a ten teaspoons shot of sugar( which is more than what we get from consuming a can of soda) a shock to the system and the body has to push that sugar out of the blood as soon as possible . That’s where the energy surge and hyperactivity comes into play .

» Diabetes : Over time, this push and pull on the pancreas to produce more insulin and the cells to accept more sugar results in depleted insulin and insulin resistance of the cells — diabetes .

» Dehydrate your body: Any time you ’re drink soda , you obviously drink less water. “Sodas do nothing but fill your body with empty calories and sugar, therefore , if you are drinking sodas, you are depriving your body of good clean water and increasing the demand on the pancreas, as it produces the insulin - producing cells with a greater challenge .

» Osteoporosis : Soda can steal those important nutrients from your bones , leading to osteoporosis . Beyond the sugars , sodas also contain phosphoric acid, which is known to promote osteoporosis or bone loss by leaching calcium from bones, as well as benzoate or benzoic acid.

» Cancer: According to experts , when left in hot temperatures , that benzoic acid can transform into a scarier chemical : benzene . Ever notice your soda tasting chemically ‘off ’ when it’s been stored improperly? That’ s benzene you ’re tasting , a known carcinogen or cancer causing agent . ”

» Age faster : Not only does soda make you fat , but it can affect your beauty in a totally different way: accelerated aging, “due to the high levels of phosphoric acid in sodas . ”

There is nothing more unnatural or detrimental to good health than soda, many experts have warned !!!

Billiards Basic Play, Rules, Accessories and Equipment

Billiards is a traditional tabletop game played with balls, sticks called cues and a specialized table. Pool is a common nickname for the game pocket billiards. These two games use similar hardware but are different due to the objectives of each game and the number of balls used.

billiards

Basic Play: Each turn is called a "break" and consists of a series of strikes of the cue ball that come to an end when a player makes a non-scoring strike or a foul stroke. Scoring is achieved by "potting" balls, by "cannons", and by going "in off". A ball is "potted" when the cue ball knocks it into a pocket. A "cannon" is when the cue ball strikes first one ball and then the other. A player's ball goes "in off" when it falls into a pocket having first "kissed" (struck) another ball.

Foul shots: A foul occurs when a player's ball hits no other balls in which case 1 point is added to the opponent's score or when the player's ball goes directly into a pocket without hitting any other ball whereupon 3 points are given to the opponent. It will quickly be seen, however, that the size of these penalties are trivial compared to the injury suffered merely as a result of allowing the opponent onto the table.....

Pool and billiards are two versions of the same game. Each of these sports focuses on the idea of hitting small balls with the end of a narrow stick called a cue with the object being to accrue more points than the opponent.
It is most common in traditional billiards to use only three balls. All of the sides, or rails, of the table are bound in cushions and no pockets are present. The goal is the strike one ball and bounce it off the sides, hitting the other two on the rebound.

Pool: is a common name for pocket billiards and is found in many American sports bars and recreational halls. It features a table the same size as a billiards table but with less cushioning on the rails and pockets set at the corners and midpoints of the longer edges. There are 18 balls in this game and one white cue ball, which is the only ball the cue ever contacts. Winning requires putting more balls into pockets or completing a colored set before the opponent.

Basic Play: Each turn is called a "break" and consists of a series of strikes of the cue ball that come to an end when a player makes a non-scoring strike or a foul stroke. While there are reds on the table, a break must always start by potting a red. When a red has been potted the player must next pot a nominated coloured ball (if it is not obvious which colour is being aimed at, the player is required to orally make this clear). A coloured ball that has been potted after a red is immediately returned to the table on its home spot. After a coloured ball, another red ball must be potted followed by a colour and so on until there are no red balls left. After the final red ball and its accompanying colour have been potted, the balls must be potted in order starting with yellow and finishing with black.

Billiards is an age-old game and to some, a serious sport. While you're idea of fun might involve a casual game of snooker or eight ball, you should also possess a general knowledge of the grand old game of billiards.

The rules of billiards are quite simple, and not too unlike the barroom sport you're more inclined to play.


► In billiards, all of the balls within the racking triangle must be touching. If you take the break shot, strike the cue ball with your cue stick to initiate play of the game. Anything other than a direct strike of the cue ball can result in your disqualification.

► In regulation billiards, it is essential to call every shot. If you are playing under these rules, you must call the shot out loud before the stroke of the cue stick, indicating the ball you are shooting for and the pocket or combination you are attempting to hit. If you do not pocket your shot, your turn comes to an end. Any extra balls that are pocketed however, are credited to you.

► A billiards ball is only considered pocketed when it falls into the pocket and stays there. This includes balls that may fall through the pocket onto the floor. If the billiards ball bounces out of the pocket and back onto the table, it is not considered pocketed and the ball is still in play.

► Each of your shots must be made with both feet set firmly on the ground. Any billiards shot that you make with one foot raised off the ground, even slightly, is cause for disqualification.

► As the shooter, you can also be disqualified from the billiards game if you make a shot while one or more balls are still in motion. Billiards players must wait for all of the balls to come to a complete stop before taking the next shot.

► At any time, if the cue ball is pocketed on a shot, that player's turn is over.

► If a billiards ball jumps off of the playing surface as a result of a shot, that shot is considered foul. The ball can jump, but not leave the playing surface (rail or floor) without penalty. If your ball lands on the floor or rail, it is considered foul and must be replaced after all other billiards balls from the shot have stopped moving.

You never know when a new opponent might challenge you to a game of billiards. If you know the rules you'll be ready to join in the fun. Besides, having an understanding of proper billiards might just help you to become a better pool or snooker player.

Accessories


There are a ton of billiards accessories for you to choose from today, and therefore it can be difficult to find the right ones. Very simply, when choosing pool and billiards equipment, you have your choice of which billiard chairs to pick from, billiard tables, billiards cues, balls, gloves, etc.

Since the chairs is such a vital part of the room, they will really add or diminish the appearance of the overall room look and feel. You don't spend a lot of money getting the perfect billiard room and then simply having the chairs take away from the look of it. It is important the chairs match the overall decor of the room to give it the look you want.

billiard chair

A billiard table or billiards table is a bounded
table on which billiards-type games ( cue sports ) are played. In the modern era, all billiards tables (whether for carom billiards, pool or snooker ) provide a flat surface usually made of quarried slate , that is covered with cloth (usually of a tightly-woven worsted wool called baize), and surrounded by vulcanized rubber cushions, with the whole elevated above the floor.

Keep in mind, these chairs are manufactured both with and without handles and cushions, and which one you decide to purchase is simply matter of how much you are willing to pay. They also come in two different heights; the first site is the counter height and bar height. These are the two most popular kind of billiard chairs purchased, and generally come in about 23 to 25 inches tall.

The ones that come taller than these are known as spectator chairs, and these usually come with a wide seat cushion, arched back, and also beverage holder. Of course, these are more expensive than the regular billiard chairs, but if you do have the money for these top-of-the-line chairs, paying the money it is probably worth it.

Keep in mind, these chairs are generally manufactured from either wood or iron. You can also get them cost designed to match your individual needs. Therefore, if the particular story you are shopping at doesn't have exactly what you want, you can order the chairs to be manufactured specifically for your rooms appearance.

Also, you might try looking in the Internet in places such as the Billiard Zone, Billiard Warehouse, etc. These are two of the most popular billiards websites on the Internet today, and if you do plan shopping online come you should certainly start looking at these sources.

On the Internet there are many different companies that sell billiards tables directly from cheaper countries such as China or other third world countries, you can purchase them for a much more affordable price and if you confine your research to the United States. Also, when looking online, you can generally purchase these a wholesale prices, and sometimes below them. When you look at the store, you will generally full retail price.

Also, you might try looking in magazines for information about the right billiard accessories as well. There are many difficulties that publish these magazines, and therefore finding them really isn't all that difficult.

The most important thing is to know is what to look for beforehand, so you don't end up paying higher price than you really have to.

Equipments


Athletes in every sport seem to have their little quirks.

Basketball players massage the basketball before a game. Batters on deck at a baseball game wait patiently, swinging the bat over and over. While these may look like nervous habits, attention grabbing tactics or ways to entertain the fans, the athletes are really getting in tune with their equipment. By knowing the equipment they use, the athletes are able to play the game to their full potential.

It is no different in the game of billiards. Whether you are a seasoned expert in the game, or a first-time billiards player, you need to know the equipment in order to play the game.

True regulation-size billiard tables are about 4 1/2 feet off the ground, and the length of the table is approximately double that distance. The playing surface of regulation tables measure about 50 by 100 inches. Billiards tables do not share the same dimensions as regular pool tables, so billiards players who like to practice their technique at home or at a pub or community center need to remember these numbers. Some stores that offer billiards tables to rent or purchase might let you come in and pay to play billiards, but even those tables may not be regulation size.

Billiards is a very technical game involving many angles and a great deal of discipline. It's important to know the dimensions of the pockets you're aiming for. The angles of the corner pockets are roughly 142 degrees, give or take a few, and the side pocket angles sit at about 103 degrees. These numbers may seem completely meaningless, but in the game of billiards, understanding the geometry is as important as having the proper cue.

When it comes to the cue, the use of regulation billiards equipment is in the hands of the user. Billiards cues should have a 14mm wide tip, 40 inches long and weigh 25 ounces. The billiards ball should be around 5.5 to 6 ounces in weight and be 2 1/4" in diameter. The playing surface of the billiards table must flat, slightly raised (between .20 and .40 inches), and lightly cushioned to give the ball a little "English" when it's hit just right.

Like any game, billiards can be quite enjoyable when played by the casual observer, but it is serious business to the professional player. Billiards players who know and understand their equipment will surpass all others who play the game. Great billiards players are not created of raw talent, but developed from a true knowledge of regulation equipment.

While you may not see championship players swinging their cues, you can bet that they are perfectly in tune with their billiards equipment.
