Please repost this and signal boost! My friend was robbed in London, looking for his wedding ring.
”On February 28 our flat was robbed in London, W9. The thieves took everything we have of value, and also my wedding ring.
I don’t include my wedding ring in “things of value” because to anyone but me it is virtually worthless. This ring was hand made by my wife out of precious metal clay: a molding clay that contains silver particles that fuse when kiln fired.
The silver in this ring is probably worth about $30. The sentiment in this ring is priceless to me.
The ring pictured on the bottom (infinity, no heart) is mine. This is what it looked like pre-firing. Today it looks the same, but is a polished silver color. It has 18 vertical lines around the band.
In the extremely unlikely chance anyone comes across this ring, please contact me. Everyone else, please publicly share this status to spread the word.”
Please, Tumblr, spread the word?

Call someone ‘gay’, make fun of someone’s weight, or their clothes, or how poor they are, or point out when you think someone looks ‘funny’ - maybe elbowing your friend in the ribs and pointing - we’ve all done it, and if you haven’t, bless you. I know I’m guilty of it more often than I’d like to admit. But what we don’t realize is that sometimes our single-serving joking is an all day, constant barrage for some people.
This was the case for Michael Morones, an 11 year old boy who was a fan of My Little Pony - ironically, a show about the magic of friendship. This young boy was bullied so much, he thought it would be better to kill himself than to endure one more day of it. Luckily he was rescued mid-attempt but has suffered brain damage. It’s sad, it’s a shame and it really puts things in perspective for people that have and have been bullied.
The awesome people at www.TeeVillain.com and I have teamed up to help Michael’s parents with the medical expenses. I’m donating my commission and TeeVillain is donating all the net proceeds to help. Let’s reach out to help comfort a family that’s had to go through this. It’s only $12, but it really is so much more.

Actually, I was thinking of something much simpler. A significant number of thefts are phones being snatched out of the users hands. The security risk appears if the phone is set to lock after an extended period, thus giving the thief potential access. Could the M7 not lock the phone as soon as acceleration is detected?
In addition to the fingerprint scanner, there is another new hardware component in iPhone 5S that security-minded folks might get excited about. I’m referring to the M7 motion coprocessor. According to Apple, the chip continuously measures motion data “from the accelerometer, gyroscope and…
