5.0 out of 5 stars Compact, yet solid. Love it!, November 5, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love my new stand! My phone cases with the built-in stand function have all caused by phone to overheat, so I kept having to take them off, but then I'd try to prop my phone up against things, while watching movies or TV shows, and it would always slide down the front or fall back, just completely inconvenient.

Now, I just use the stand. It's compact, yet solid. It folds flat so it's easy to carry around and to throw in one's bag. And though it may be a bit heavy maybe for some, I really like the solidity of it, and it can be placed at any angle that's optimum for your viewing pleasure. It's good quality, it just feels good in the hand, and the aluminum looks really nice as opposed to some of the cheaper looking plastic ones.

And the best part was how reasonably priced it was. I have bought several other things from Anker. I've been happy with all of their products, and they have clean, simple yet distinctive package design with printed material inside that made me smile. I will keep buying their products.

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the Hotel North Korea, April 3, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This black-comic, waking nightmare from Richard Badalamente details the misadventures of the hapless Joseph Kimmelman, an American abroad who finds himself out of his element, out of luck and possibly out of his mind. Mr. Kimmelman, you see, has been assigned the task of assessing the investment potential of a hotel in The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, more commonly known as North Korea, which is the one you don't want to get stuck in. And not just any hotel, but the infamous, perpetually "under-construction" ( i.e., never-opened and sitting empty for decades) Ryugyong Hotel in the capital of Pyongyang. Oh, and he's also supposed to be doing something shady for the CIA, though he's not sure precisely what that may be.
Kimmelman's adventures in the Hermit Kingdom start out ominously enough: the mandatory and involuntary loss of his passport is followed by a variety of alienating encounters, every moment of them dogged by one or more minders, officially known as "guides" but best described as jailers. It's a world in which every third person is named Kim regardless of sex and Joseph is never quite sure who, if anyone, can be trusted. So far, so bad -- until it gets worse. When Kimmelman goes off the reservation on an unwise excursion, he descends into a Kafkaesque hell, a shifting, opiate-enhanced fever-dream of constantly escalating pain and humiliation. Is there any way out? And, if so, at what price?
The Reunification of Joseph K. is a screamingly funny journey, emphasis on the screams. Judiciously doled-out details indicate that Mr. Badalament has done his research; I certainly hope, at any rate, that he hasn't based any of this tale on personal experience. The prose is clean and droll, and changes in tone from funny to funny-horrible to just plain horrible are navigated with the ease of stepping into an open elevator shaft in an unfinished hotel. Enjoy the drop.

I received this cable at the end of February. It seemed like a solid cable, well-built, However, it didn't even last one month before it stopped working.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beneficial supplement in a very good product, July 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Anti-inflammatory effects, antioxidants, improved brain function and complexion - the benefits of curcumin are numerous and well-documented. It's also a mood-booster, according to some studies: it increases serotonin, and at higher doses, also significantly increases brain dopamine levels, making it a natural antidepressant. It's even anti-viral. Do a little searching online and you'll be a convert.
On a personal level, I've noticed relief from joint pain since I've begun taking it -- my knees and elbows have begun aching in recent years, and curcumin seems to have alleviated this.
Dr. Danielle's contains piperine (black pepper) to make it more bioavailable. While concerns have been expressed about the piperine affecting other medications, it's generally believed to be safe in doses under 15 mg per day. One capsule of Dr. Danielle's contains 2.5 mg, so even if you take two a day you should be fine. (I'm no expert, though, and I suggest you do your own research.)
It's organic, vegetarian-friendly, GMO-free and GMP-certified. Recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a try, February 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As far as I can tell, this stuff works. Of course, there's no way of proving it's not a placebo effect, but my seasonal depression has improved. I'm staying on saffron until further notice.

2.0 out of 5 stars Error, April 30, 2010
I have not read this book, so take my star rating with a grain of salt. However, as I was perusing an excerpt on Google, I was surprised to discover that Frederick Elmes is credited as the author of the novel Wild at Heart, which is the basis for David Lynch's film of the same name.

Wild at Heart was written by acclaimed author Barry Gifford. The error is compounded by the fact that Elmes is not even a writer -- he's the gifted director of photography of such films as WaH and BLUE VELVET. Perhaps this mistake -- which could have been prevented by a cursory look at the film's Internet Movie Database page --has been rectified in subsequent editions. I hope so.

4.0 out of 5 stars Toothsome Victuals, January 26, 2010
This review is from: The Starving (Kindle Edition)
If you like horror in the style of the fabled H.P. Lovecraft, check out The Starving. This short story puts an even more horrific spin on an already grim historical incident involving Captain John Smith, but Disney's Pocahontas this is not! Instead, it's a well-researched -- and imagined -- tale of gruesome and supernatural goings-on at Jamestown, told in the classic journal entry-style of Stoker or the aforementioned Lovecraft. Author Richard Badalamente knows both his history and his genre fiction, and this is a creepy, intelligent homage, finely calibrated and concluding on just the right note. Subtle, spooky fun for the discriminating lover of chills that sneak up in the night, teeth bared. Pull your feet up under the covers when you read.
