The best beanies in 2020: Carhartt, Patagonia, The North Face

  • If your winter coat is lacking a hood or if you want an extra layer to keep your head warm, a good beanie is your best bet.
  • The North Face Shinsky Beanie is the casual, warm, slouchy winter hat you’ve been waiting for. The best part? It’s reversible, so it goes with everything in your wardrobe. You might not take it off until springtime.

I love beanies more than any other winter hat style. They give you that cool, casual hipster look, but most importantly, they’re usually pretty warm. Of course, there is the issue of hat hair — a lot of beanies tend to be close-fitting so that they trap heat against your scalp and actually stay on your head.

But beanies are also stylish enough that you can just leave them on inside. Two birds, one stone, right?

The word “beanie” is kind of one of those catch-alls

The Best Memes And Moments

The 2020 Emmy awards looked a little different this year.

Jimmy Kimmel presented the biggest night in TV from a lonely looking studio. Some of the nominees, like Rachel Brosnahan and Samira Wiley, wore pyjamas (no judgement here, we dig it) and winners were given the awards in their own homes rather than nervously walking up to the stage in a couture dress to give a speech in front of a daunting A-list crowd.

But one thing that remained the same? The memes.

Luckily, the 2020 awards have shown us that whichever format an awards show takes, we can still rely on celebrities to do meme-worthy things and the meme-makers at home to work their magic at impressive speed.

Here are our favourite memes from the 2020 ceremony:

10 Best Manhwa To Read For Geminis

Dreams, friendships, and relationships take centerfold in these manhwa, and these would be a perfect pick for a busy bee like Geminis to read.

Geminis are busy bees. If they’re not the center of attention at a party, then they’re the top star at their job. They’re even mostly mistaken for being two-faced most of the time when they can be the sweetest people in general. For this busy bee of a zodiac sign, they are perhaps more in line with dreamers, romance, and starry-eyed characters.

The commercial launch of 5G in the Philippines will bring not only super-fast internet for mobile phone users, but also introduce a new generation of digital services for both individual and enterprise customers.

“5G is a major milestone in the development of mobile phone services and digital technologies.” said Ramon Isberto, PLDT-Smart Public Affairs head and first vice president, in an interview with Cito Beltran’s “Agenda” on One News.

“It is a platform that enables new technologies such as artificial intelligence, internet of things, cloud computing and other digital services that when combined, will not only enhance existing services, but also make possible a new generation of wireless services,” he bared.

Initially, 5G’s fiber-like speeds will improve entertainment services such as video viewing, and e-sports and e-games.

“Through your 5G-capable handsets, you can enjoy streaming high-movement videos such coverage of sports events,” said Lloyd

‘Sana all’: Liza Soberano, Bela Padilla, Julia Barretto get fast response over internet woes

Jan Milo Severo (Philstar.com) – September 9, 2020 – 5:07pm

MANILA, Philippines — Kapamilya celebrities Bela Padilla and Julia Barretto reacted on telecommunications giant PLDT’s initiative to provide Liza Soberano a faster internet connection. 

In her Twitter account, Liza recently criticized her Converge internet provider for the slow connection. 

Days after Liza tweeted, PLDT provided her with fast internet. 

“Okay so @pldt came to my house yesterday and hooked me up with the best internet I have ever experienced in my whole 5 years of living in this house. 300 MBPS. What a lifesaver. Lag? I don’t know her,” Liza wrote.

Jack Dorsey still thinks Bitcoin is the strongest contender for an internet-native currency

The world of cryptocurrency moves at a whirlwind pace but Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey remains committed to its earliest lodestone, Bitcoin (BTC).

In an interview with Reuters on Sept. 10, Dorsey, who also founded the mobile-payment platform Square, said he believes the coin’s potential still outshines later developments:

“I think the internet warrants a […] native currency and […] Bitcoin is probably the best manifestation of that thus far. I can’t see that changing given all the people who want the same thing and build it for that potential.”

Dorsey connected Bitcoin’s founding principles with the cooperative and decentralized ethos that he considers to be the driving spirit behind the web:

“The internet is something that is consensus-driven and is built by everyone, and anyone can change the course of it. Bitcoin has the same patterns, it was built on the internet.”

Dorsey lauded the fact that “anyone with a

The best fibre broadband deals in September 2020

Fibre broadband deals will seem like the obvious choice for a lot of people when investing in a new internet plan. We’re streaming constantly, houses are filled with smart devices and more and more people are working from home.

And luckily, fibre has slowly become a very affordable option, with prices dropping right down to sit just above what you’d pay for ADSL. The likes of Virgin Media, BT Fibre, Sky Fibre, Vodafone and more are providing faster and faster packages.

If you thought that the best broadband deals were reserved for slower ADSL internet connections, think again. Fibre optic broadband is a bloody battleground for the major providers, which means frequently fantastic prices for the consumer. Over the last few months, we’ve seen prices less than £20 per month for 35Mb internet with the likes of TalkTalk, Vodafone and Plusnet bearing arms to fight it out for the best
