Apple’s recent update for the iPhone has removed Easter Sunday from some users’ calendars, prompting consumer complaints.
While the previous update displayed both Easter Sunday and April Fool’s Day on April 1, Easter Sunday was removed for some users on their iCal calendars following the latest update.
“Easter Sunday shows up on calendars for iPhone users running versions 11.2.2 of Apple’s iOS operating system, but not some users of 11.2.5, which is the latest version of the OS. However, one user said Easter showed in their calendar,” reported Fox News. “The default setting on iOS devices is for U.S. holidays, which shows holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas and Independence Day. However, there is an option to add Alternate Calendars, including Chinese, Hebrew and Islamic. But Christian is absent from this list on iOS 11.2.5.”
Several users complained about the disappearance of Easter Sunday from their calendars on Apple’s forums.
How dirty is San Francisco? An NBC Bay Area Investigation reveals a dangerous mix of drug needles, garbage, and feces throughout downtown San Francisco. The Investigative Unit surveyed 153 blocks of the city – the more than 20-mile stretch includes popular tourist spots like Union Square and major hotel chains. The area – bordered by Van Ness Avenue, Market Street, Post Street and Grant Avenue – is also home to City Hall, schools, playgrounds, and a police station.
As the Investigative Unit photographed nearly a dozen hypodermic needles scattered across one block, a group of preschool students happened to walk by on their way to an afternoon field trip to city hall.
“We see poop, we see pee, we see needles, and we see trash,” said teacher Adelita Orellana. “Sometimes they ask what is it, and that’s a conversation that’s a little difficult to have with a 2-year old, but we just let them know that those things are full of germs, that they are dangerous, and they should never be touched.”
In light of the dangerous conditions, part of Orellana’s responsibilities now include teaching young children how to avoid the contamination.
( TGP) Shocking photos posted to Twitter of a CBS News reporter and students who survived last Wednesday’s high school massacre in Parkland, Florida that killed seventeen students and faculty, show the reporter and students laughing uproariously and posing for the photos like they are partying rock stars.
The photos featuring CBS reporter Gisella Perez and the students were posted by CBS This Morning staffer Caroline West and student activist Cameron Kasky. The photos come off as if they were promo stills for Glee: The High School Massacre.
These photos were taken over the weekend on the set of an interview taped for broadcast Monday morning. This means the students were only three or four days out from surviving a massacre in their school. In just a few days they have become celebrated heroes of the anti-Trump resistance and are acting and being feted like rock stars. In fact rock stars (or a pop star in this case) are reaching out to them, “I just want to thank @justinbieber for being so kind to our movement since last night. He and I had some trouble because my third grade girlfriend was much more interested in him than she was in me, but he and I have gotten over that. We have each other. #NeverAgain”
Yeah he is so grief stricken! Shame on u CBS and shame on these kids acting like its a party. Funny he was so sad last week but this week he's partying like its 1999 with CBS something doesn't smell right! pic.twitter.com/QPPTk1sH2S

“This is not about being anti-football, it is anti-corporatization,” one of the Black Lives Matter protest organizers recently said on the Edge of Sports podcast.

On Monday, banners were dropped by members of Black Lives Matter and Antifa during the Super Bowl LII’s media event warning that “#WeReadyWeComin.”
As the two large banners were dropped inside, hundreds of leftist protesters marched in the streets and blocked traffic surrounding the event at the Xcel Energy Center. Many of the demonstrators have formed an Antifa-aligned group calling themselves the “Super Bowl Anti-Racist Anti-Corporate Coalition.”
According to their Facebook page, the group is planning to hold protests every day leading up to the main event. “Their plans will culminate on Sunday, February 4, with a 3pm rally at Peavey Park (Franklin & Chicago Ave), followed by a march to US Bank Stadium,” the page states.
“The banner drop and rally/march marks the first day of the week of protests surrounding SB52. The Super Bowl brings with it a SEAR-I designation, which has resulted in the Minnesota’s largest security operation in the history of the state,” the anarchist website Unicorn Riot reports.
The National Guard, multiple federal agencies, and law enforcement from across the nation have been in Minneapolis since the 26th in preparation for the sporting event
( IBTimes ) On 31 January, earthlings will be treated to a rare ‘super blue blood moon‘, and we give you the how and the when of this rare celestial event. In fact, the event is so rare that it occurs once every 150 years.
The whole ‘blue blood’ moniker might sound a little spooky but there is obviously a lot more to it. The event, as described by Nasa, is a combination of three separate events which will occur at the same time – the moon’s closest approach to the Earth, a full moon and a full lunar eclipse.
The closer-than-usual approach of a full moon makes up what we call a bigger, brighter ‘supermoon’ while the lunar eclipse adds the element of ‘blood’, or a reddish hue, which it will have while passing through the Earth’s shadow for a short while.
It becomes reddish because the Sun, Earth and Moon will be aligned perfectly in a manner that the Earth will bend sunlight passing through its atmosphere to give the moon its colour.
While that sounds interesting, it gets much better. This is the second full moon of the month, which means it is also a blue moon. This is not related to colour in any way but happens once every two-and-a-half years. The first supermoon of the month appeared on 1 January, which was the second member of a trilogy that started with last month’s supermoon and will end with the one on 31 January.
Now that we know why the upcoming supermoon is so special, we take a look at what will be the best time to capture its beauty.
