Blink Outdoor camera review

Our Verdict

Get the Blink Outdoor if you’re looking for a home security camera under $100 that can withstand the elements.

  • Inexpensive
  • Records good quality audio and video
  • Can store video locally
  • Long battery life

Against

Field of view: 110 degrees
Resolution: 1080p/30 fps
Power: Two AA batteries
Size: 2.8 x 2.8 x 1 inches
Works with: Alexa

The Blink XT2 was one of the best home security cameras for those who wanted an outdoor camera for less than $100. Its successor, the Blink Outdoor, improves on its successor with a better camera and the ability to save videos locally rather than just in the cloud. You’ll find in this Blink Outdoor review that everything that made the XT2 great is still here — and that the camera is still a bargain. That's why it's one of the best outdoor security cameras for those on a budget.


Noun: A word (other than a pronoun) used to identify any of a class of people, places, or things.

Pronoun: A word that refers either to the participants in the narrative (e.g., I, you ) or to someone or something mentioned elsewhere in the narrative (e.g., she, it, this).

Article: A determiner that introduces a noun phrase.

This module will help you learn more about nouns, pronouns, and articles in English grammar.

Although APA is not a focus in this module, it was created using APA 6, and the example paragraphs and citations you see will reflect APA 6.

This module should take you 30 minutes to complete.


The 5-D itch scale: a new measure of pruritus

Background: Itching is a subjective and multidimensional experience which is difficult to quantify. Most methodologies to assess itching suffer from being unidimensional, for example only measuring intensity without impact on quality of life, or only measuring scratching activity. None has actually been demonstrated to be able to detect change over time, which is essential to using them as an outcome measure of response to an intervention. The 5-D itch scale was developed as a brief but multidimensional questionnaire designed to be useful as an outcome measure in clinical trials. The five dimensions are degree, duration, direction, disability and distribution.

Objectives: To study the 5-D with respect to validity, reliability and response to change.

Methods: The 5-D was administered to 234 individuals with chronic pruritus due to liver disease (n = 63), kidney disease (n = 36), dermatological disorders (n = 56), HIV/AIDS (n = 28) and burn injuries (n = 51). The 5-D was administered at baseline and after a 6-week follow-up period. A subset of 50 untreated patients was retested after 3 days to assess test-retest reliability.

Results: The 5-D score correlated strongly with a visual analogue score: r = 0.727 at baseline (P < 0.0001), r = 0.868 at the 3-day repeat (P < 0.0001), and r = 0.892 at the 6-week follow-up (P < 0.0001). There was no change in mean 5-D score between day 1 and day 3 in untreated individuals (intraclass correlation coefficient = 0.96, P < 0.0001). The 5-D did, however, detect significant changes in pruritus over the 6-week follow-up period (P < 0.0001). Subanalysis of the different patient groups revealed similar response patterns and scores, with the exception of lower total scores for the burn victims due to lower scores on the distribution domain because they itched only at the site of their burn.

Conclusions: The 5-D, therefore, is a reliable, multidimensional measure of itching that has been validated in patients with chronic pruritus to able to detect changes over time. The 5-D should be useful as an outcome measure in clinical trials.


5.D: Module 5 Review

Module 5 Coding Assignment

Last assignment and you are DONE!

Time to complete: About 30 minutes.

Ask questions in Discussions if you get stuck! We are all learning, and going through getting stuck and then unstuck (even with someone's help) can be a very valuable learning experience!

Summary: In this assignment, we are going to have a bit of fun with our built restaurant web application. The front page of our web app contains 3 clickable tiles: Menu, Specials, and Map. If you click on the Specials tile, you will be taken to a single category page where all the menu items that belong to the Specials menu category will be shown. Your task in this assignment is to alter this behavior such that when the user clicks on the Specials tile, the web app takes the user to a random single category menu page, listing menu items in the category, be it "Lunch", "Dinner", "Sushi", etc. That way, any random category can become the Specials! What fun! (not! :-) )

In order to accomplish this, we need to change the home HTML snippet and, besides pulling it dynamically from the server, also insert a random category short_name into the function call of the following code. Previously, the code to send the user to the "Specials" category was this:

For this assignment, we changed this line to prepare it for a random category short_name to be this:

Here is what you will need to complete the assignment:

(If you haven't already) Create a GitHub.com account and a repository that you will use for this class.

(If you haven't already) Follow the Development Setup Video (beginning of Module 1) instructions on how to create a repository and set it up such that you can host and view your finished web pages on GitHub Pages, i.e., GitHub.io domain name. You will need to provide that URL for your peer review.

Create a folder in your repository that will serve as a container folder for your solution to this assignment. You can call it whatever you want. For example, module5-solution or mod5_solution , etc.

You will need to download the starter files for this project and copy them into your solution container folder (e.g., into 'module5-solution'). Since assignments and starter code get updated from time to time, don't assume that you have the latest version already on your system. The best way to ensure that you are working with the very latest starter code is either 'git clone' the fullstack-course4 repository into a new directory OR, if you've already done 'git clone' previously, you can simply open up your command prompt (cmd on Windows or Terminal on Mac), navigate to the folder where the fullstack-course4 repository was previously cloned into and do: git pull

This will update your local repository with whatever changes have been made since the last update.

Once you update your repository, copy all the contents of the fullstack-course4/assignments/assignment5/assignment5-solution-starter folder into your newly created solutions container folder for this assignment, e.g., module5-solution .

Once that's done, you are ready to start coding the solution.

NOTE: the provided code will not run. It is up to you to follow the instructions to get it to run.

You are NOT allowed to change the home-snippet.html file. Any adjustments to the value of randomCategoryShortName property needs to be done in Javascript code.

There are 4-5 fairly simple steps to implement the required functionality.

  • Open up js/script.js file.
  • Find TODO: STEP 0, and follow the instructions until you are done with TODO: STEP 4.

If you've watched the lectures, the code should be very familiar to you.

  1. Once you are done, verify that the desired functionality is working correctly. Use Browser Sync or deploy your solution to GitHub pages.

Repeat this several times to make sure that most of the time you see a different single category page.


5.D: Module 5 Review

The X5D is an entry level keyboard from Korg. It basically offers Korg's acclaimed Ai2 sound engine (from the 01/w series) packed into a small, lightweight, affordable package! Being an entry-level keyboard, the usual luxuries such as aftertouch and an internal power supply have been omitted, and it lacks an arpeggiator or a sequencer, however it more than makes up for this in sound.

In addition to its General MIDI sound set, the X5D comes loaded with two banks of preset sounds that can be loaded alternately, however you can overwrite the preset sounds and store up to one hundred program sounds and one hundred combination sounds of your own. The preset sounds vary widely, from complex pads and SFX sounds, to pianos, organs and orchestral instruments. Some of these sound dated in this day and age, the piano sound is a little on the thin side to say the least, but the string, pad and organ sounds can still hold their own against much newer keyboards! Korg have even included some classic voices from their iconic M1 workstation. The famous 'Universe' and 'M1 Piano' sounds are present in the X5D.

Editing the sounds can at first be a bit like performing keyhole surgery. The tiny two-line screen means that a lot of the words are abbreviated, and a lot of scrolling and menu diving is required to edit the sounds. However, it is a relatively short learning curve. Once you have created some program sounds, you can combine up to eight of them in combi mode. This allows you to create really thick sounds and textures, but is also useful for creating keyboard splits and velocity switched setups.

Upgrade your environment to Az

To keep up with the latest Azure features in PowerShell, you should migrate to the Az module. If you're not ready to install the Az module as a replacement for AzureRM, you have a couple of options available to experiment with Az:

  • Use a PowerShell environment with Azure Cloud Shell. Azure Cloud Shell is a browser-based shell environment that comes with the Az module installed and Enable-AzureRM compatibility aliases enabled.
  • Keep the AzureRM module installed in Windows PowerShell 5.1 and install the Az module in PowerShell 7 or later. Windows PowerShell 5.1 and PowerShell 7 and later use separate collections of modules. Follow the instructions to install the latest version of PowerShell and then install the Az module from PowerShell 7 or later.

The 10 Best Books of 2016

The year’s best books, selected by the editors of The New York Times Book Review.

A finalist for the National Book Award, Mahajan’s novel — smart, devastating and unpredictable — opens with a Kashmiri terrorist attack in a Delhi market, then follows the lives of those affected. This includes Deepa and Vikas Khurana, whose young sons were killed, and the boys’ injured friend Mansoor, who grows up to flirt with a form of political radicalism himself. As the narrative suggests, nothing recovers from a bomb: not our humanity, not our politics, not even our faith.

Propelled by a vision that is savage, brutal and relentless, McGuire relates the tale of an opium-addicted 19th-century Irish surgeon who encounters a vicious psychopath on board an Arctic-bound whaling ship. With grim, jagged lyricism, McGuire describes violence with unsparing color and even relish while suggesting a path forward for historical fiction. Picture a meeting between Joseph Conrad and Cormac McCarthy in some run-down port as they offer each other a long, sour nod of recognition.

With a conceit as simple as it is bold, Whitehead’s brave, necessary novel imagines a slave fleeing north on a literal underground railroad — complete with locomotives, boxcars and conductors. By small shifts in perspective, the novel (winner of the National Book Award in fiction) ventures to new places in the narrative of slavery, or rather to places where it actually has something new to say: about America’s foundational sins, and the ways black history is too often stolen by white narrators.

In Han’s unsettling novel, a seemingly ordinary housewife — described by her husband as “completely unremarkable in every way” — becomes a vegetarian after a terrifying dream. Han’s treatments of submission and subversion find form in the parable, as the housewife’s self-abnegation turns increasingly severe and surreal. This spare and elegant translation renders the original Korean in pointed and vivid English, preserving Han’s penetrating exploration of whether true innocence is possible in a vicious and bloody world.

Inspired by the notebooks and reminiscences of his grandfather, a painter who served in the Belgian Army in World War I, Hertmans writes with an eloquence reminiscent of W.G. Sebald as he explores the places where narrative authority, invention and speculation flow together. Weaving his grandfather’s stories into accounts of his own visits to sites that shaped the old man’s development as a husband and father as well as an artist, Hertmans has produced a masterly book about memory, art, love and war.

The author of the Montaigne biography “How to Live” has written another impressively lucid book, one that offers a joint portrait of the giants of existentialism and phenomenology: Sartre, Beauvoir, Camus, Jaspers, Merleau-Ponty, Heidegger and a half-dozen other European writers and philosophers. Around the early 1930s, the story divides between the characters who eventually come out more or less right, like Beauvoir, and the ones who come out wrong, like Heidegger. Some of Bakewell’s most exciting pages present engaged accounts of complex philosophies, even ones that finally repel her. And the biographical nuggets are irresistible we learn, for example, that for months after trying mescaline, Sartre thought he was being followed by “lobster-like beings.”
