3 Photo and Video Apps that’ll improve your life with Instagram

By John R.

Sorry for the rare posts, it’s just that ‘cos I want to make my posts feel the fullest. Here are some apps that will switch your life around and turn you into an Instagram pro!

1: Picsart – FREE WITH OPTIONAL UPGRADES

Honestly, In my opinion, Picsart is one of the best apps on the market. Although it’s free, you get close to these cool templates, collages, art, text and editing using this app. It’s easy to use and comes in full HD, which is a great advantage

2: Adobe Photoshop Express

If you’re looking for Photoshop-style power, Photoshop Express will give you the high standards you need. If you’re after a quick, free, highly usable tool for making edits to your iPhone photos, Adobe’s app is ideal. Use it for cropping, straightening, exposure adjustments, colour effects, sharpening and more. It doesn’t have advanced details like slimming down but it’ll do for Instagram.

3: Crop Video – FREE WITH OPTIONAL UPGRADES

Crop Video is a perfect app for editing your video. It is free with $0.99 or $1.99 upgrades for advanced options. Personally, I think that it’s an amazing video editor – like a mini iMOVIE PRO for the iPhone

Hope it helps!

Girl sues Instagram for $500 million!

How it started

At the beginning of May 2014, a photo of Alabama teen Keisha Johnson OWNED Instagram. Her meme with her ugly face inspired thousands of Instagram users to make fun of her face with a meme. With her confused-WTF face, she brought ideas of memes all over Instagram. Here are some:

Confused-Girl-Meme

How she reacted.

And she is pissed. Known as the “confused girl,” the teen has decided to sue Instagram from $10 million to $500 million for what sounds like defamation:

“My face looked ugly like I was about to throw up.. I look nothing like that in real life! I am a really pretty bad girl…” she said.

What they did

In a court session, Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom explained to Keisha that they aren’t responsible for the user’s actions.

According to its policy, users are responsible for what they post. It still looks like the IG star is confused, and still isn’t close to being a millionaire -__-

She is still suing Instagram. Lets see what happens…

The most awesome indoor playgrounds

1. Swing and watch TV at the same time.

2. You may be a bit dizzy when you reach the bottom of this curly fry of a slide.

3. No yard space? No problem.

This family’s home is a great example of how to bring outdoor recreational activities inside.

4. A cute little cottage equipped with a quick escape route.

5. The high walls of the pool help to prevent sand spillage.

Just make sure the kids know to brush off before they jump out — and keep your cat away: To their feline eyes it will appear to be a very luxurious litter box.

6. Slides! Balls!

The fun to be had in this house is almost overwhelming.

7. Turn a sprint up the stairs into a lesson about the colors of the rainbow.

So educational.

9. But if you believe that the tree is a necessary ingredient, just bring a hunk of one in.

Make sure to throughly cleanse your chosen stump of all insects first (unless you’re into that insectarium-style life).

10. You don’t even have to get complicated — plywood works.

Simple. Effective.

12. Relax in an enormous hammock.

Just try not to think of the pain that would ensue if the netting gave out. Maybe put a ball pit below it?

13. When you make your own ball pit, you don’t have to worry about strangers’ germs.

Here’s how.

14. Too lazy to put together a bunch of pipes? Blow up a pool.

The slide isn’t necessary, but strongly encouraged.

15. Get out that energy, kids!

Frolic! Play! Your parents will be over there….folding laundry. Again.

16. Gymnast in training.

Make sure to lay down a rug for a gentler falling experience. Maybe even a padded mat.

British Years vs. American Grades – Just for Year VIII

Young-boy-writing-Featured british-american-flag brandlogo A man holding a bulb with the world on it.

Student’s Guide on TES to NEW SCHOOL (IN KW):

This doccument is for the pupils in Year 8 of 2014-2015

T.E.S is the best school in Kuwait – no kidding.

Here are the Grades Conversions for different ages:

Age 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
British Curic. (Y) K Rec 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 University
KS1 KS2 KS3
American (G) Nur. P-K KG 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 University

Switching from TES to AIS, ASK or AUS is fine here in Kuwait, but you be careful, when you move, you may be put down a grade than you actually are.

So, Year 8 is our last year in TES. If you move to BSK, NES or KES, then next year you will move to Year 9 (WHICH IS ON TRACK)

If you want to move to AIS, ASK or AUS, then next year you will either be moved to Grade 8 or 9. YOU WANT TO MOVE TO GRADE 9. BUT, within your age, you are supposed to be in Grade 8. This is not what we want because you’ll learn Year 8 again as Americans start school a year after the British.

schoolCCSS-Wordle

So John, What do I do if I switch to the American curricula?

There is one simple answer. WORK HARD. If you don’t want your education to get messed up, then it is a must to prove to the school that you are capable enough to work a year above your age.

Weeks or months before the test, you should start revising and do research on what you need to learn to prove that you have finished Grade 8. If you want to learn about Core standards in 50 states in USA (Core Standards in Kuwait are General), visit one of these sites:

www.ixl.com (MATHS)

www.corestandards.org (WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW)

If you pass your test and you are going to Grade 9 (1 year above), then you will be on track. If you need help, you can ask me for help any time.

Remember, working hard in school is something that’ll affect us for the rest of your life so make sure to thank your parents and cherish your teenage-hood.
