If you’re one of the many millions who stream any sort of video content on your smartphone, whether it’s YouTube videos or feature films, then this new gadget is a must-have. The ease of streaming on your phone is often dampened by the minuscule screen size, but the Dizaul Pro screen magnifier is a simple and affordable solution to that problem. There’s really not a lot of science behind it — it’s a sleekly designed wooden stand that holds your phone horizontally. A platform extends out just a few inches in front of your phone screen and holds a thin sheet of magnifying material. It works like a small projector screen by amplifying the image on your phone screen to double its size. It’s compatible with most smartphones and requires no batteries. THE DIZAUL PRO SCREEN MAGNIFIER A Simple Solution to Small Screens

By the age of 3, 85% of a child’s brain is already formed, and the biggest impact on this formation is the child’s interaction with their parents. BabySparks in an innovative smartphone app that recognizes the importance of this relationship and supports it by focusing on the early development of children through meaningful play with their parents. With over 1,300 video-based activities and over 500 developmental milestones to achieve, the app is a fountain of information and know-how that first-time parents will find especially helpful. What makes BabySparks unique is that it is distinctly not one- size-fits-all. They use a proprietary smart adaptive technology that learns each child’s development profile through continued use of the program. This way, it identifies specific needs and provides parents with a customized program to support those needs. As each program is used, the child’s progress is automatically recorded, and while there are a lot of metrics at work, for the user, it’s a simple and clear snapshot of their child’s progress. Achievable milestones are set based on studies from child-development authorities like the American Academy of Pediatrics because BabySparks values real science when it comes to nurturing young minds. However, they value the role parents play above all else. That’s why they consistently implement feedback from parents who actually use the program. Over 3.5 million downloads in 180 countries means suggestions come from parents all over the world, and this is especially useful for bettering the adaptive technology. BabySparks understands that no two children are completely alike and no two parenting styles are completely alike. Their recognition of diversity in their users allows them to develop programs that are useful for all types of parents and children. While there may never be a definitive guide for perfect parenting, BabySparks isn’t afraid to test creative thinking and meaningful interaction in order to give the children of the world a chance at reaching their full potential. How BabySparks Is Changing Parenting THE POWER OF PLAY

The Dizaul Pro is lightweight and portable, so you can take it anywhere you’d take your phone. If you do a lot of gaming, you can play through the amplifier by way of a Bluetooth keyboard connected to your phone. It’s available in multiple colors to fit your preferences and is a simple and affordable replacement for a computer screen or tablet screen.

KIM SCOTT’S ‘RADICAL CANDOR’ Be a Kick-Ass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity

“Radical Candor” is all about caring personally while still challenging directly. It teaches readers how to effectively solicit criticism from peers in an effort to improve their leadership skills while providing steps for helping those around them grow, as well. It demonstrates the important balance between praise and criticism, which are both seen as necessities by author Kim Scott. Since publishing her book, Scott has earned international fame with her approach to effective leadership. She worked as a leader at Google and Apple, where she developed and taught

management classes. After publishing her book, she co-founded the Radical Candor executive education company, which puts the book’s philosophies into practice for every type and size of business. Her basic philosophy is that you don’t have to choose between being a pushover or a jerk. Using the lessons spelled out in this book, you can be kind and firm at the same time. “The way you ask for criticism and react when you get it goes a long way toward building trust — or destroying it,” Scott says. Proper avenues for helpful criticism are the baseline for what she outlines as a leader’s three core responsibilities: creating a culture of compassionate candor, building a cohesive team, and achieving results collaboratively. The effects of this philosophy have raised the bar for management practices worldwide.
