A Letter to my Pregnant Child-Less Self… Dear Judgey McKnows-It-All, Right now, your due date is approaching, and you’re hyper focusing on a lot of insignificant stuff. I wish you knew that none of what you are worrying about matters. What’s that you say? Advertisement - Continue Reading Below While we are on the topic of useless shit (pun intended) that you are obsessing over, it seems as though you are sitting around wondering if you’ll poop on the table during delivery. Oh, and that book you’re reading on natural birth?

Love, Me

Mount Nod: the almost forgotten resting place of Wandsworth’s Huguenots | Flickering Lamps Marooned on an island between two busy stretches of road in south west London is a little known burial ground that tells a small part of the long and complex story of London’s immigrants. The name of one of the adjoining streets gives away this connection: Huguenot Place. The Huguenots were French Calvinist Protestants who left France in search of religious freedom after the Edict of Nantes was revoked in 1685. The Edict of Nantes had previously granted the Huguenots significant rights in a predominantly Catholic country, but under the more autocratic rule of Louis XIV this tolerance was revoked and many Huguenots saw no option other than to leave France. It is thought that around half a million Huguenots fled to other Protestant countries in Europe and further afield. Many of them settled in England, and today they are most closely associated with the Spitalfields area of East London. There isn’t a great deal of information to be found about the old burial ground.

3 Easy Ways To Remove Backgrounds From Images Without Specialized Software Advertisement I hate graphics software. There, I said it. I know I’m a tech blogger, and I should have at least some basic graphic skills, but the truth is I don’t. One of the most common tasks I have to do with images is removing their background. But is it really? ClippingMagic ClippingMagic is a brilliant tool that makes it unbelievably easy to remove a photo’s background. After uploading your image, you’ll see two copies of your image side by side. There are four different brush sizes to choose from, and you can zoom to take care of the finer details. Pros: Doesn’t require any installs, very easy to use, and does most of the hard lifting all by itself. Cons: Being a web app, ClippingMagic requires an internet connection; this method cannot be used offline. Bottom Line: A simple Windows software tool anyone, from a child to a grandmother, can use to remove any background from almost any image. MS Office 2017 Before you being, you need to insert the picture into a new document. That’s it.
