The collection is exclusive to Roots of Fight and includes graphic apparel across five styles on sweatshirts and shirts. It is inspired by the colors of the promotional posters that sport bright yellow, pink and blue.

The match itself features two boxing legends. Tyson, 54, is the former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world while Jones Jr., 51, racked up 66 wins in his career and held belts in four different weight classes.

Tyson is one of the most well-known and feared fighters in the history of boxing. He opened his career with 37 consecutive wins and finished at 50-6. His last professional fight was June 11, 2005.

After retiring as one of the most recognizable faces on the planet, Tyson’s stock rose as a pop culture icon, appearing in television and film, including as the lead of “Mike Tyson Mysteries,” an animated series that sees the heavyweight champ solving Scooby-Doo-like mysteries.

The fight is available on Pay-Per-View by clicking right here. It will begin at 9 p.m. EST and cost $49.99.

While Tyson vs. Jones Jr. is the main event, Jake Paul vs. Nate Robinson, Badou Jack vs. Blake McKernan and Viddal Riley vs. Rashad Coulter are also part of the main card.

ShinePay Laundry Payment App

By Hannah DiPilato

The new app ShinePay brings laundry payment to your pocket with the new convenient app. This is a way for apartments or laundromats to easily add phone payments for their customers. 

Customers download the ShinePay app and add a payment method. Each washer and dryer will have a unique QR code that customers will scan to view prices and submit wifi. Funds are then transferred to the owner’s ShinePay account which can be securely withdrawn.

ShinePay installs with new or existing units with ease and the ShinePay Bluetooth Spark installation can be completed in just a few minutes. The ShinePay Bluetooth Spark installation can work by itself or be installed to work in conjunction with other existing ways to pay. The system does not require wifi or any equipment besides the customers’ smartphone. There’s even a video that shows how easy the installation is. 

The ShinePay Bluetooth Spark only costs a one-time payment of $149 per unit for the price of each hardware. The transaction fee, which only applies to electronic transactions, is 3.9%. ShinePay also helps to reduce the cost of coin transportation when transitioning to a coin-free laundry service. 

ShinePay also brings a new level of safety and security to the laundry room. By going coinless thieves have nothing to steal, so you can own your machines with peace of mind. The company also keeps data security as a top priority and keeps all customers’ data safe. ShinePay also stores, decrypts, and transmits customers’ card numbers in a hosting infrastructure that is entirely separate from ShinePay’s primary services. 

Certified to the most rigorous Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS), ShinePay ensures security. The company has also obtained global regulatory licenses. The payment technology the company uses has a PCI DSS Level 1 certification which is the most stringent level of certification in the payment industry. There is also advanced fraud detection put in place to protect against imposters. 

Support is given to both owners and customers 24 hours a day, seven days a week by phone, chat and email. This provides around the clock support for any questions regarding ShinePay. The brand is always improving its platform and continuously adds new features. 

ShinePay has also introduced ShineKiosk, a payment system where customers don’t need to download an app. This system is perfect for hotels, laundromats or apartment buildings where people are just passing through. The ShineKiosk requires a one-time hardware payment of $899 and a monthly cost of $25. There is the same 3.9% transaction fee for ShineKiosk transactions. 

Customers can type their card information into the secure system and payment is wirelessly sent to the selected machines. All you need to host a kiosk is a wall, power outlet and internet connection. ShineKiosk has the same security as the ShinePay app, so all credit card information is secure.

How Much Time do We Spend Using a Smartphone in the UK?

On average, the Britons are currently spending more than 30 hours a week online making it one of the most addictive activities around. People spend a good part of their time on the internet doing a variety of things including betting, playing online games, dating while others are there mainly for business purposes. 

In recent statistics, most of the youths aged between 16 years and 24 years have been noted to be having the highest population of internet users. Smartphones have made work extremely easy and manageable due to the high levels of technology prevailing in the country.

Some Statistics

In these times, the rate at which people are using the internet, especially the smartphones has greatly risen compared to the past 10 years. The statistics have also shown that women are spending more of their time on the internet as compared to men.

More time online

As previously stated, in the UK people are averagely spending 24 hours a week on the internet. This tells of the great influence the internet has to the people and their general well-being. The comprehensive report which was compiled by Ofcom has also revealed that 78% of the UK population use smartphones on online related activities. 

The addiction has moved to a higher level in that people here check-in using their smartphones after every 12 minutes and as well 35% of the population check their phones just before going to bed.

Less time on phone calls

Another good example that can really tell how much people treasure their smartphones than any other thing else is in the way they are making their phone calls. It has been noted that the total number of outgoing calls has greatly dropped by 1.7 percent. 

The main cause is that people have turned away from the normal phone calls and have opted to call using WhatsApp or messenger. To be more precise, 75% of the population prefer making phone calls in this way and at the same time 92 percent of the population say browsing the web is more important.

The Most Popular Mobile Activities

Mobile related activities have been on the increase especially after the introduction of modern technology and the wide use of the internet by most people in the UK. This brought a lot of advancement and development in the mobile sector and the entire IT fraternity.

Social Media

The social media platforms are among the most popular among many of the UK residents. People have turned away from messaging and currently WhatsApp, Facebook and twitter among the widely used social media platforms. This has become one of the simplest ways of reaching out to a wider audience and is equally an effective tool for communication.

Slots

This is another common activity among many residents of the UK, especially the adults. Most of the residents are glued on their screens spending a few of their minutes and hours playing at casinos not on Gamstop via mobile. This has gained popularity among the residents and it has greatly contributed to uncontrolled rates of addiction among many. Slots can either be played for fun or for real money. Although it is liked by many, it has as well caused high rates of addiction leading to problem gambling rising.

Dating services

This is yet another more popular activity among many. Most people have linked up through these dating sites and it eventually ended up in marriage to a number of them. It has been a common thing on the internet among many youths and adult and several relationships have thrived to a greater extend.

Conclusion

Since the introduction of mobile technology especially smartphones, a lot of developers have been realized in the technological sector. This has glued many people on their screens spending time with mobile gaming. Great thanks to the recent advancements in mobile technology who are taking the lion’s share in terms of offering reliable, fast and standard solutions to many of the problems.

Naz “ItsNastyNaz” Saleh

TikTok, a phone app allowing users to share fun videos of singing, dancing and skits, has taken the world by storm, and Naz “Itsnastynaz” Saleh is its megastar.

Saleh, or “Itsnastynaz” on TikTok, was a completely ordinary fast food worker yet a complete anomaly. He was born on April 27, 1997, in Bronx, New York, and raised by his Yemeni-descendant parents looking for a better life for their kids. When he turned 12, he started working 12 hours per day, seven days per week. Saleh hit rock bottom when excessive bullying made him drop out of high school, but things changed.

Saleh went from working in fast food to being a man who enjoys all luxuries of life, but what made Naz Saleh who he is today?

It all started when Saleh was watching a YouTube video and a Musical.ly ad popped up. He saw the famous Baby Ariel. The video made him laugh and think he could do it even better than she could if he gave it a try. That was the turning point in his life. He started performing more skits with his brother in his workplace. He became an overnight success when the third video he uploaded was viewed 5 million times, and it didn’t stop there. The video spread like wildfire and was featured on news channels internationally.

His audience skyrocketed to over 6 million followers. He was awarded the “Popular Creator” badge by TikTok after his videos broke the internet and were viewed between 100 million and 350 million times.

That’s when he quit his 84-hour-per-week job to focus full time on his TikTok career. He now sits at 13 million followers.

Saleh is now known as “The Most Generous Man in New York” after filming himself giving food and money to homeless people. His videos also caught the attention of the government, giving some of those homeless people the option to go to rehab. Many said goodbye to their previous lives and moved toward a path of happiness.

Following his quick ascent, Saleh signed deals with iconic brands such as What Do You Meme? and Fashion Nova. He even received sponsorship deals from apps on the Apple App Store. He went from working in fast food to making seven figures and driving luxury cars all in a day’s work.

Though he has found success on TikTok, life isn’t always easy for Saleh. He receives many hateful comments online.

When asked how he deals with hateful comments, Saleh said, “Receiving so much hate can be heart-breaking and really demotivating. It used to have really bad effects on my mindset and my happiness until I realized making skits, helping people and making others happy is my safe place, and no one can make me feel bad about that.”

He admits sudden fame can be a bit overwhelming, but Saleh tries to remain positive, using his power to spread as much love and happiness as he can.

Craigslist Safety Tips

Safety Tips for Avoiding the Most Common Craigslist Scams

When you ask people if they’ve heard of Craigslist, the answer is invariable “yes.” Not surprising, as the selling portal is active in more than 70 countries. But what people don’t realize is that craigslist takes in over $1 Billion in revenue each year, but there are only 50 employees in the company! That’s due to the fact that the buyers and sellers on craigslist do all of the work.

But what most people don’t know is people use craigslist to scam others out of merchandise, data and money. Never has “buyer beware” been more important to follow than it has on craigslist. So what are some of the things that you need to watch out for? Let’s look at some of the most common scams.

Big Ticket – Big Scam

If you’re looking to purchase a big-ticket item, like a car or even a house, and the seller doesn’t ask for a credit check before engaging in a transaction, stop! The seller is just trying to get your financial information and will take your money and disappear. Buyer beware on this because without question, this is a scam.

Something to remember: the Internet and social media have the unique identity to mask the identity of the person you’re dealing with, so even though they give you a name or email address, you have to verify that it’s true. Start with Nuwber, an easy-to-use online tool that will verify the true identity of the person you’re communicating with, simply by entering his or her phone number or other pertinent info. Once you’ve received their true identity, if the person whom you’re dealing with is not who they say they are, end all communication immediately. The person is a cybercrook and scam artist and they’re only out to rob you anyway they can. 

Here’s another tip: if someone would prefer to call you rather than text or email you, watch out. They want your phone number in order to gain access to additional data and information, so never give out your number. Always use Google Voice to make or receive phone calls, because it lets you use a phone number that is totally different from your own. And always use craigslist’s proxy email to avoid revealing your own.

Avoid Wire Transfers

A sure giveaway to a scam is when the seller asks you to use a wire transfer to pay for merchandise. This provides an opportunity for the cybercrook to steal your financial data or your money without ever sending any merchandise! Avoid wire transfers. If you do want to use PayPal, use the website to get a link – never use one that’s provided to you by the seller. They’ll simply send you to a spoof site where they can access all the account information you enter.  

By following these simple tips to protect yourself, you should be able to buy and sell using craigslist without any problems.

5 Questions You Should Ask When Hiring a Web Development Team

Pretty much anyone can call themselves a web developer nowadays, and it is important that you do your due diligence before working with anyone. Make the wrong choice, and you could end up with tons of hidden costs, unfinished work, or in the worst case, never hearing from them again. 

However, by asking the right questions and doing your research, you should be able to find a great team that will be able to understand your vision and execute it. Here are some questions you should ask when hiring a web development team.

Have You Ever Worked on Projects Similar to Mine?

All websites have very different needs and have to be approached differently. For instance, building an e-commerce store and a portfolio site will be very different. If you need some of your employees to be able to access log in functions, for instance, or need an extensive database to be installed, not all web developers will have this kind of expertise.

This is why it is very important that you know your objectives for your website, and make sure that they can show you work similar to it. Don’t take their word for it. Some will say yes to everything, only to take twice as much time once they realise how much research they have to do.

How Long Will the Project Take from Beginning to End?

This is also something that needs to be clear from the get-go. If you have a deadline for this project, then you want someone who’ll be able to get the job done within that time period. That doesn’t mean, however, that you should go for rushed work. Some people might take a little bit longer, either because of conflicting schedules or previous engagements. Make sure that you look around to check the average completion time, and go for someone who can deliver the best work as fast as possible.

What Kind of Services do You Offer?

Different development teams will offer different packages, so it’s important that you know what their actual scope of service is, and what you can expect to pay. For instance, some companies will also offer some marketing and SEO services. Some will offer social media management and promotion as well.

That’s why you should make a clear list of the services you want to be included. This way, you’ll be able to eliminate those who can’t provide a crucial service that you absolutely need.

What About Your Employees?

You want to know what type of employees they work with. Do they outsource some of their work? If so, what do they outsource?

While outsourcing is not always an issue, it’s always better to go with a web development company that has their own in house employees. Teams like Appetiser, for instance, personally hand pick their programmers and have them go through a gruelling hiring process to make sure that they’re up to par. As a matter of fact, only 1.7% of the applicants coming from major tech firms are able to make it through their coding challenges.

You want a team that will be self-sufficient so you won’t have to suffer delays. Another thing is if you need some follow up work done, it’s better if the programmer who previously worked on your website performs it. Working with another programmer will require some additional troubleshooting that you may have to pay out of pocket for.

What Technologies Are Your Specialty?

This question allows the developer to talk about what distinguishes them from the competition. If you haven’t decided what technology you’re going to use, still ask what technologies they’re specialised in. If they’ve adapted to new technologies well, they are probably qualified to help you migrate to a new one.

Ask how many developers they have that work with these technologies. You don’t want to hire a software firm that specialises in a specific area, but if that expertise resides with one person who may leave the firm at any time this is also a problem. Ask how much time it may take to scale up the team to handle your project. If you may need to accelerate your schedule, you want to know you won’t have to wait a few weeks for key people to be available.

A related question to ask is their seniority. If their entire expertise in an area is within a group of junior developers, they may not be capable of the quality of work you need. Conversely, a mixed team of junior and senior developers is certain to be able to handle any challenge. 

Conclusion

Hiring a web development team is essential if you want to have a website that will show your business in the best possible light as possible. Make sure that you take your time, shop around, and find a team that can align with your goals and expectations.

The 5 Most Beautifully-Crafted Online Casino Games Today 

Let’s face it: The online casino industry is not the first place you would think to look when searching for stunning artistic creations. But the industry is hugely competitive at the developer level; and, when there is intense competition, stylistic choices are integral to helping your creations stand out from the crowd. 

Indeed, with the technology now available to developers, they effectively have a blank canvas to create what they want. Designers have broken the rules, and casino games no longer must be designed in a linear fashion. 

Below we are going to look at five online casino games that stand out as, well, artistic creations. You can win money with these games, sure. But the designs are the real winners: 

North Storm – Rabcat 

A new game from up-and-coming developer Rabcat, North Storm captures one of the most popular themes in online casino gaming at the moment – Norse mythology. While other games with a similar theme have perhaps cashed in on the popularity of Marvel’s Thor movies, Rabcat has gone much more traditional with North Storm. The slot is beautifully-crafted, featuring Norse symbols and iconography presented on a 3D platform. The subtle hues of colour, as well as a 3D snow effect, add to a pleasurable atmosphere for gaming.  

Quantum Blackjack – Playtech  

One of the biggest trends in online casino gaming is the concept of progressive betting blackjack. In a nutshell, that’s blackjack as you know it, but with supercharged prizes added to the mix. Quantum Blackjack is very much of that sort, but the presentation is simply outstanding. Played live through a studio stream or in a virtual format, Quantum Blackjack features a jet black backdrop with stark neon lines shaping the blackjack table. It looks like the kind of casino game you would find in the movie, Tron. 

White Rabbit – Big Time Gaming 

In its base game, White Rabbit resembles most other slots. However, once the bonus game launches, this Alice in Wonderland-themed slot transforms into something else altogether. The bonus game is a series of free spins played on a new reel set, which expands when cupcakes land on the screen. To be honest, it’s a difficult concept to describe, so different is it to anything else we have seen in the online casino world. In true Lewis Carroll style, White Rabbit takes you to a world you have never seen before. 

Age of the Gods Roulette Live – Playtech 

With this one, the question of whether it’s stylish or gawdy is perhaps a matter of personal taste. Age of the Gods Roulette is played in a studio with real dealers, and it has become one of the most popular games around since its 2017 release. The studio is designed to look like Mount Olympus – the game has a Greek mythology theme – and the croupiers dress in garb to make them look like Greek gods. Sounds tacky? Perhaps. But it somehow works, and it makes an exciting change from the standard roulette games you find everywhere else. 

Archangels: Salvation – NetEnt 

This game from NetEnt hints at the future of online casino; namely, that video slots are becoming more like video games. The graphics on Archangels: Salvation are nothing short of sensational, and they would not look out of place on a PlayStation 4. The screen is split between a ‘good’ and ‘bad’ angel, both of whom can interrupt the play to add special prizes. It looks a little bit like World of Warcraft, but, of course, there is that extra allure of some massive prizes on offer. Top stuff from NetEnt, which boasts one of the best in-house design teams in the industry.
