These kinds of design decisions can reinforce gender stereotypes,” emoji creative director Jennifer Daniel wrote in a blog post. “So with this update, emojis that don’t specify gender will default to a gender-ambiguous design. You can still choose between male and female presentations if you want to opt into a gender on your keyboard.”Google designed 71 couples with different skin tones (via Google)The Unicode Consortium in February unveiled 230 new icons, revealing text substitutes ideal for chats about adorable aquatic creatures, favorite recipes, laundry, and outer space.Apple and Google are both expected to launch their own interpretations of this year’s characters later this year for iOS 13 and Android Q, respectively.Until they are supported on your device, new emojis may display as an empty square (⃞).More on Geek.com:Eat Your Feelings With Hershey’s Limited-Edition Chocolate Emoji BarNumber of Emoji References in U.S. Court Cases Growing ‘Exponentially’Twitter Is Piloting a New Design Update With an Emoji ButtonEditor’s note: This article was updated on July 17 with additional comment from Google.

The good news was that the rain was light, just measurable as of 4 p.m. The bad news was as of 4 p.m. the high temperature was only 54 degrees, some ten degrees below average. We see more rain today before the big warm up.Yes, believe it or not, Wednesday and Thursday will be the highlights of this year’s weather so far.

first_imgVancouver’s only local radio station, KXRW-FM, revealed last week that some local listeners might tune in and hear different voices through the airwaves soon.Portland radio company Bustos Media has applied to broadcast on the same frequency — 99.9 FM — and its feed from across the Columbia River may overpower some of the local transmissions.Radio industry experts say it’s not an uncommon occurrence, but KXRW worries that it could be a setback for the young, volunteer-run station.“It’s pretty nerve-wracking,” said Susan Galaviz, chair of the radio station’s board of directors. The station launched in March to highlight politics, events and music in Southwest Washington.“It took all of our efforts” to get launched, she said. “Our whole goal is to have a platform to educate and inform folks, and we were just starting to have all local Vancouver musicians on who never have their music on the radio.

first_imgOver the last year, runner David Crawford said, he’s seen an uptick in homeless encampments along the Padden Parkway bike path. He recalled seeing tents and shopping carts full of old shoes and other items along with garbage.In February, Crawford said he saw a particularly bad encampment with garbage strung about. He said that after it sat there for a long time, he decided to contact the Clark County Council.It took a month for the encampment to be cleaned. The delay occurred, in part, because of confusion over whether the encampment fell under Vancouver or Clark County’s jurisdiction. But Crawford said that it seemed like the county didn’t have a chain of command or policy in place when it came to homeless encampments.“From the guys I talked to, it’s like, who is supposed to take care of this?” he said. “Somebody needs to do something.”The increase in homelessness in recent years has created new challenges. In 2016, Clark County lost a lawsuit over its handling of the personal property of homeless people during sweeps of encampments.last_img read more

first_imgMotorists arrested on suspicion of drunken driving this weekend will encounter a law enforcement strategy that is new to Clark County.If a suspected drunken driver refuses to take a breath test, law enforcement officers will automatically seek a search warrant allowing them to take the driver’s blood sample as evidence.The strategy is called a “no refusal weekend,” and it’s being implemented starting today in conjunction with enhanced patrols through Sunday, according to the Washington State Patrol.“This is just another tool in our toolbox to help us with getting impaired drivers prosecuted properly and gathering other pieces of evidence that we can use in our investigation,” WSP Trooper Will Finn said at a press conference Wednesday. “It’s another form of evidence to help us prosecute individuals who are out there putting dangerous behavior out on our roadways and putting other motorists in danger for the choices they’re making by driving impaired.”‘No refusal’Normally, when a driver is suspected of being impaired in Washington, an officer pulls them over and conducts a series of tests — including a field sobriety test — before taking them to a secure area to provide a breath sample.If the driver refuses to provide a breath test, the officer has the option to apply for a search warrant or proceed without it.last_img read more
