Make Videos Even From 30 Feet Away Without Touching Your Camera

Videos On The Go
Make a video without touching your phone. EmoFix is with you on any adventure.

The button wakes up the EmoFix so that you can pair it with your iOS or Android device. A blue LED above the button will flash when the device is “awake” and ready for use. A replaceable 200 mAh CR2032 coin cell battery powers the EmoFix for up to 2 years when used up to 30 times a day. When paired with an Android device it will automatically turn off after 90 seconds of inactivity. With iOS devices it turns off after 60 minutes.

The EmoFix is water resistant, has a 30 ft range and can be paired with up to 7 other devices. However only one device can be paired at any given time. The nice thing is that no external apps are required to use this selfie remote. Just pair it with your iOS or Android device, launch the camera app and you’re done. A press of the EmoFix button will snap a picture when you’re in image capture mode and is supposed to toggle video recording when you’re in movie mode. I tested the EmoFix with a Nexus 6, LG G3 and a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, all using their built in camera apps. Other than having to press the button once to wake it up if it had timed out, the EmoFix worked fine as a remote shutter button for all three devices. I had a different experience using it for video capture though. It worked well with the Nexus 6 and would toggle video capture on and off when the button was pressed. On the LG G3, it would do nothing in video recording mode and on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, it would stop video recording but subsequent presses would snap pictures instead of starting a new video.

The EmoFix works fine as a remote shutter button for taking selfies, groupies and other shots where you need to locate the phone/device somewhere other than your own hand. But for video control, the EmoFix didn’t work well at all. The button also exhibits strange behavior when pressed outside of the camera app.

If You Loved "American Beauty", Then You Will Fall in Love with "My American Mistress"

If you loved Sam Mendes'multiple academy awards winning film American Beauty, then you will fall in love with Orikinla Osinachi's "My American Mistress", about a melodramatic relationship between a very wealthy white older woman and a younger African immigrant in New York who is a struggling artist and poet.

He wants to be the black Picasso of the 21st century and like Picasso, he also sees women as "goddesses and doormats" and she is going to be his goddess no matter what her snobbish racist white upper class says. She sponsors his first solo art exhibition and his first book launch and with fame and fortune he becomes the toast of America and the heartthrob of younger women who are falling over themselves to pose Unclad for him and the pregnancy of one of them is going to break the heart of his mistress.
"I thought you would be more faithful to me than my ex-husband. But you have turned out to be worse. He never stooped so low to prefer the doormats to his goddesses. You have brains, but no class," she sneered at him.

Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett and Nicole Kidman are all good for the role of the leading lady.

The release date will be announced later.

Questions and Answers On How the European Commission Helps Refugees

BRUSSELS, 19 June 2015 / PRN Africa / -- Who is a refugee?

Every year natural disasters, conflicts and human rights violations force millions of people to leave their homes and to flee to save their lives. Their survival often depends on international assistance and protection.

A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee his or her home country and is unable or unwilling to return because of fear of persecution. The 1951 UN Convention relating to the Status of Refugees gives refugees legal protection under the international refugee law. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is mandated to respond to refugee needs.

2015 Presidential Election Campaign Photographs That Changed Muhammadu Buhari

These presidential election campaign photographs changed the public image of President Muhammadu Buhari from the previous images of cold and stern looking personality to a family friendly father, grand father and more tolerant public friendly political leader.

These photographs of Buhari and grandson and grand daughter boosted his public relations and endeared him to the younger population.
They have been inspired by President Barack Obama's interactions with children.
These photographs showed us that the retired General Muhammadu Buhari is now indeed a born again political leader from the former military dictator to a true democratic leader who should inspire millions of Nigerians in the fulfillment of the Nigerian Dream of a New Nigeria.

As the lyrics from "The Greatest Love of All" speak volumes for the expectations of Nigerian children who are indeed searching for a hero; someone to look up to after thousands of them have been traumatized by the nightmares of the horrors of the bloody Boko Haram terrorists in the middle belt and northern regions of Nigeria. And we hope President Muhammadu Buhari will not disappoint them.

"Greatest Love Of All"

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

Everybody's searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to.

PS: "The Greatest Love of All" is a song written by Michael Masser and Linda Creed and originally recorded by George Benson for the 1977 Muhammad Ali biopic The Greatest.

Video of Inaugural Speech by His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari

Inaugural speech by His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari following his swearing-in as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on 29th May, 2015, at the Eagles Square, Abuja.

I am immensely grateful to God Who Has preserved us to witness this day and this occasion. Today marks a triumph for Nigeria and an occasion to celebrate her freedom and cherish her democracy. Nigerians have shown their commitment to democracy and are determined to entrench its culture. Our journey has not been easy but thanks to the determination of our people and strong support from friends abroad we have today a truly democratically elected government in place.

I would like to thank President Goodluck Jonathan for his display of statesmanship in setting a precedent for us that has now made our people proud to be Nigerians wherever they are. With the support and cooperation he has given to the transition process, he has made it possible for us to show the world that despite the perceived tension in the land we can be a united people capable of doing what is right for our nation. Together we co-operated to surprise the world that had come to expect only the worst from Nigeria. I hope this act of graciously accepting defeat by the outgoing President will become the standard of political conduct in the country.

I would like to thank the millions of our supporters who believed in us even when the cause seemed hopeless. I salute their resolve in waiting long hours in rain and hot sunshine to register and cast their votes and stay all night if necessary to protect and ensure their votes count and were counted. I thank those who tirelessly carried the campaign on the social media. At the same time, I thank our other countrymen and women who did not vote for us but contributed to make our democratic culture truly competitive, strong and definitive.
