Aboriginal troops may teach Prince Harry some unusual skills

Prince Harry will get a glimpse into how soldiers in North West Mobile Force (NORFORCE) use ancient Aboriginal skills to patrol the unpredictable north-west coast of Australia.

NORFORCE’s area of operations is about 1.8 million square km and covers the Northern Territory and the north of Western Australia. 

Harry, who is fourth-in-line to the throne, is Down Under to complete a month-long secondment with the Australian army as part of his military training. 

NORFORCE patrols the area to be on the look-out for illegal foreign fishing vessels and drug smugglers as well as people smugglers from neighbouring Indonesia.

Photographs of the unit’s soldiers reveal Harry will be sleeping under the stars as well as completing drills in the darkness of night.

Possible activities he will engage in include lighting fires, digging for water amongst spinifex grass, eating and cooking turtle eggs, spear fishing and looking for mud clams among mangroves.

Aboriginal reservists make up a large proportion of the NORFORCE’s 600-strong unit, and are well-versed on the terrain and the food the land can provide. 

Fish, shellfish, turtle eggs and even insects supplement rations are eaten during the patrol. 

On Monday, Prince Harry touched down at 8.30am and made his way through throngs of people who were hoping to catch a glimpse of the red-headed prince in Canberra.

He will be travelling to Darwin in the Northern Territory, Sydney in New South Wales and Perth in Western Australia. 

The ‘People’s Prince’ showed off his playful side as he greeted thousands who were lined up behind barricades on Monday. 

He made faces at babies and even got a peck on the cheek from a elderly lady.

But what drew the Prince’s attention the most was Ethan Toscan, 12, from Bruce – a suburb north of Canberra.

In a show of solidarity, Ethan – who shares the same hair colour as the British royal – made a sign that read: ‘Red Heads Rule!’

What’s in my CES 2019 bag? The best tech for writing, photos and video

id=”article-body” class=”row” section=”article-body” data-component=”trackCWV”>

eats amateurs for breakfast.

Having a successful CES is about the intangibles — knowing how to cluster your meetings, wearing the right shoes, making time to eat something decent, staying hydrated and always making sure you get at least six hours of sleep.

But if you’re at CES to create content, there’s even more to think about. Because if you don’t plan well, you’ll run out of power, fight in vain for bad WiFi and get storage-full messages in the middle of your best video opportunities.

After more than a decade of sometimes learning the hard way, here’s the kit I bring to produce the best content possible while carrying a bag that’s light enough to sling all week.

Disclaimer: CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

— While plenty of content creators get away with a tablet or a slim Chromebook, I need a full laptop for running Adobe Creative Cloud and processing professional photos and video. I have the 2016 model, and while I don’t love the Touch Bar that’s existed on models since then, I do dig Touch ID and the 2560×1600-pixel Retina Display. And the 13-inch has plenty of horsepower in a small package.

<span class=

— This is my personal phone, but I also use it to take and edit a lot of photos — both from the itself and to quickly grab images from my mirrorless cameras to edit and post on Twitter or for stories with tight turn-arounds. Something else that comes in especially handy during CES is that my two are on two different wireless carriers, so I can sometimes get a connection on one when the other is sputtering.

 — If I’m honest, this is mostly for watching movies and videos on the flights to-and-from CES. But, it also comes in super handy when my laptop is low on battery and I just need to open a text editor and write a story — when paired with the . While this 2017 model is still available, though, those buying now should check out the snazzier 2018 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros.

— I dig Sony mirrorless cameras for their compact size, silent shutter, electronic viewfinder, and other digital-first features. My go-to camera is the full-frame , but the crop-frame and its lenses are smaller, lighter and more portable so that’s why it’s in my bag for CES. The a6300 also makes such a great video camera that many professional wedding photographers use it as their second shooter to get background and b-roll shots.

— This lens is an amazing deal for under $500. It’s a perfect walkabout lens for the Sony a6300. While it doesn’t compare in quality to the breaktaking Sony 70-200mm GM f2.8, you can buy this crop-frame lens for a fourth of the price and sometimes even less. And considering that you’re putting it on a crop frame, it’s basically the equivalent of a 300mm telephoto. That makes it a powerful option at events. In terms of performance-for-value, I think it’s one of the best kit lenses in the world (and one of the most underrated).

— I also bring this tiny nifty-fifty for the e6300 because the one thing the Sony 55-210mm won’t give you is beautiful bokeh (blurred background). This 50mm excels at those shots, which is especially helpful for taking products photos.

— Love to use this small, thin and lightweight strap with the Sony a6300.

— There are plenty of steps to track at CES. Just roaming the show floors racks up lots of mojo. But, you also quickly learn that traffic is so bad at CES that it’s often faster to walk between locations than waiting in long taxi lines and then sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic. Even the 30-minute walk between The Venetian and the Las Vegas Convention Center is a lot more pleasant as a walk and well worth it for your mental and physical health. The show floors are so loud that getting wrist alerts about calls and text messages on the is also clutch at CES.

— I’ll just say it, I hate charging headphones or earbuds. I’m a reluctant convert to this part of the wireless revolution. And I still always carry a pair of wired earbuds as a backup. But, the have terrific sound and are super useful when you’re walking a lot, or listening to podcasts and watching movies on planes. And the ease with which they automatically pair to an iPhone and iPad might be the most impressive thing about them.

— Since so much of the tech industry descends on CES — over 150,000 people and still growing — it’s a great place to interview smart people and ask them about the stuff they are working on. These encounters can make great video clips. But, CES is so loud that a lot of interviews can be useless without a good directional microphone. Movo offers some great options that can plug into either a camera like the a6300 or a smartphone. I like this one because I can plug it directly into the 3.5mm jack and this model of the Movo also has a second mic so I can record my own audio as well as a guest and also listen at the same time to make sure it’s getting a good quality recording.

— Power banks are a dime a dozen. This one is my favorite because of its size and modest price tag.

— used to include one of these long corded adapters with all of its MacBooks, but now it only includes the dongle to plug your power brick directly into an outlet. Those bricks are sometimes so heavy that they fall out of an outlet or can’t squeeze into a crowded power strip. I still use one of the perfectly extension cables from an old MacBook, but fortunately, as well. They’re super handy when sitting on a floor somewhere at CES to work on your laptop and stretching to plug into an outlet.

— I have plenty of old USB SD card readers that I could plug into USB-C adapters, but that’s clunky. And now that Apple has removed SD card readers from MacBook Pros, dealing with SD cards from cameras can be a bit of pain. This inexpensive little dongle makes it simpler — and theoretically, a little faster for transferring a lot of big files.

— Again, I could plug an old USB Ethernet adapter into a USB-C adapter, but that gets kludgy and it also doesn’t take advantage of Gigabit Ethernet. And at CES, whenever you can plug into a wired internet connection, you do it because the wireless gets swamped.

— This app lets you transfer photos from Sony mirrorless cameras to your smartphone, where you can then quickly edit them with your favorite app to post on social media and/or in stories.

— Speaking of favorite photo editing apps, is still the best for fast photo editing app on mobile. It’s also pretty full-featured. And Google bought it in 2012 and has made it available for free on Android and iOS ever since.

— Snapseed is great for quick edits of photos that don’t need much help and aren’t going to be very high-profile. But for images that need more polish and that I really want to make pop, I import those to Lightroom. The great thing is that with Lightroom CC, next-generation editor, the mobile, web and desktop versions are nearly identical so it’s easy to import from any of those places and then switch devices to do the actual editing. Then, you can even switch again to export the file wherever you need it.

Organize scarves and ties with shower curtain hooks

id=”article-body” class=”row” section=”article-body” data-component=”trackCWV”>

Closet organization isn’t exactly rocket science. For example, fb88 you can use a large . However, finding a place to store certain garments or other miscellaneous items while also maintaining order is often easier said than done.

For ties and scarves, there is a very simple solution. All you need is a handful of shower curtain hooks and a clothes hanger, which you can find in packs of 12 for around $1.00 at your local Walmart or dollar store.

Taylor Martin/CNET

To make your own tie rack, take an unused clothes hanger from your closet and add one shower curtain hook per tie to the rung on the clothes hanger. Thread the ties through the hooks, one by one, and hang the clothes hanger on the clothes rod.

This also works exceptionally well for organizing your scarves and making them easier to sift through quickly.

If you have a scarf or tie that only goes well with one particular garment, put the shirt or garment on the coat hanger, slip the shower curtain hook over the hook end of the hanger and thread the tie or scarf through the hook.

If you want to take it one step further, you can attach a Command Hook to the wall and place your clothes hanger with the ties or scarves on it.

Here’s where things get tricky and frustrating. Once you get everything hung and in the closet, you may realize that the clothes hanger does a really poor job of staying level with ties on it. A slight bump will send all the hooks to one end of the clothes hanger.

To prevent this from happening, use a small amount of hot glue on each shower curtain hook to hold it in place.

Alternatively, if you find this solution isn’t stable enough and you have some extra space on the hanging rod in your closet, you can add the shower curtain hooks directly to the rod itself. This way, you won’t need glue and the ties will stay in place much better.

Pete Deevakul

‘s innovative parlor, helmed by ice cream wizard Nicholas Morgenstern, is known for an array of funky and eclectic flavors, from favorites like burnt sage and black licorice to a whole section that’s a study in bananas, boasting flavors like charred banana and banana curry. The menu includes 88 flavors (all available to ship!), and while you’re at it, you can also add ice cream cakes and sandwiches to your cart.   

Graeter’s Ice Cream

This fifth-generation family-run ice cream business in Cincinnati, Ohio, has been in operation since 1870, so they certainly know a thing or two about the warm weather staple. Flavors here are an ode to that classic nostalgia (think butter pecan and peanut butter chocolate chip), and if you’re getting a shipment, you can create your own pack or choose from an already curated gift selection. Make it a party and throw in a few jars of the housemade raspberry and butterscotch sauces. You can also .

AJ Ragasa

A Seattle, Washington institution, Frankie & Jo’s specializes in plant-based ice cream — meaning all of the ice cream is 100% vegan. Expect flavors like salty caramel ash, mint brownie and chocolate date, all of which can be shipped across the country if you don’t happen to live near a Seattle scoop shop.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream

Fan favorite Jeni’s was born in Columbus, fb88 Ohio, but the brand now boasts locations in over 10 states. Jeni’s has long dabbled in nationwide shipping, and these times are no different. Orders require a minimum of four pints (that shouldn’t be too hard to maneuver), with flavors running the gamut from gooey butter cake to coffee with cream and sugar — not to mention seasonal flavors like pumpkin cake roll. Know an ice cream fanatic? Sign them up for Jeni’s pint club, a subscription that delivers four pints of Jeni’s, four times a year.  

McConnell’s Fine Ice Cream

This third-generation family business (that’s been around for 70 years!) has a number of scoop shops in Southern California, but if you’re not in the area, you can also order the beloved creamy flavors online. Pick pints like eureka lemon and marionberries, sea salt cream and cookies and peppermint stick, and if you really can’t stop throwing pints in your cart, consider opting for a 3-, 6- or 12-month membership.  

Van Leeuwen

Van Leeuwen has mastered classic American flavors, eschewing extraneous add-ins for the simple pleasure of an unadorned creamy scoop. The Brooklyn-based company also flaunts a host of vegan flavors, often crafted out of a cashew or oat milk base.

Salt & Straw

Salt & Straw’s ice cream is crafted in Oregon — built from local and sustainable ingredients — and has become something of a staple on the West Coast. For now, the rest of the country will have to rely on weekly shipments, where fun and innovative flavors reign, like honey lavender and strawberry honey balsamic with black pepper. Look for seasonal spins too, like applesauce cake with cream cheese frosting. Create your own selection, or nab one of the pre-curated packs.  

Chris Bauer

St. Louis, Missouri’s Clementine’s Creamery operates in both the naughty and nice spheres: The naughty flavors are infused with alcohol, while the nice ones eschew booze for your traditional ice cream ingredients. You’ll find a host of alcohol-spiked flavors, like chocolate infused with cabernet, as well as flavors that are odes to classic cocktails (think a Manhattan, but in ice cream form, fueled by sweet vermouth, tart cherry juice and vanilla). Nice flavors run the gamut from Italian butter cookie to salted crack caramel.  

Goldbelly

Aboriginal troops may teach Prince Harry some unusual skills

Prince Harry will get a glimpse into how soldiers in North West Mobile Force (NORFORCE) use ancient Aboriginal skills to patrol the unpredictable north-west coast of Australia.

NORFORCE’s area of operations is about 1.8 million square km and covers the Northern Territory and the north of Western Australia. 

Harry, who is fourth-in-line to the throne, is Down Under to complete a month-long secondment with the Australian army as part of his military training. 

NORFORCE patrols the area to be on the look-out for illegal foreign fishing vessels and drug smugglers as well as people smugglers from neighbouring Indonesia.

Photographs of the unit’s soldiers reveal Harry will be sleeping under the stars as well as completing drills in the darkness of night.

Possible activities he will engage in include lighting fires, digging for water amongst spinifex grass, eating and cooking turtle eggs, spear fishing and looking for mud clams among mangroves.

Aboriginal reservists make up a large proportion of the NORFORCE’s 600-strong unit, and are well-versed on the terrain and the food the land can provide. 

Fish, shellfish, turtle eggs and even insects supplement rations are eaten during the patrol. 

On Monday, Prince Harry touched down at 8.30am and made his way through throngs of people who were hoping to catch a glimpse of the red-headed prince in Canberra.

He will be travelling to Darwin in the Northern Territory, Sydney in New South Wales and Perth in Western Australia. 

The ‘People’s Prince’ showed off his playful side as he greeted thousands who were lined up behind barricades on Monday. 

He made faces at babies and even got a peck on the cheek from a elderly lady.

But what drew the Prince’s attention the most was Ethan Toscan, 12, from Bruce – a suburb north of Canberra.

In a show of solidarity, Ethan – who shares the same hair colour as the British royal – made a sign that read: ‘Red Heads Rule!’

Organize scarves and ties with shower curtain hooks

id=”article-body” class=”row” section=”article-body” data-component=”trackCWV”>

Closet organization isn’t exactly rocket science. For example, you can use a large . However, finding a place to store certain garments or other miscellaneous items while also maintaining order is often easier said than done.

For ties and scarves, there is a very simple solution. All you need is a handful of shower curtain hooks and a clothes hanger, which you can find in packs of 12 for around $1.00 at your local Walmart or dollar store.

clothes-hanger-ties-scarves.jpg

Taylor Martin/CNET

To make your own tie rack, take an unused clothes hanger from your closet and add one shower curtain hook per tie to the rung on the clothes hanger. Thread the ties through the hooks, one by one, and hang the clothes hanger on the clothes rod.

This also works exceptionally well for organizing your scarves and making them easier to sift through quickly.

If you have a scarf or tie that only goes well with one particular garment, put the shirt or garment on the coat hanger, fb88 slip the shower curtain hook over the hook end of the hanger and thread the tie or scarf through the hook.

If you want to take it one step further, you can attach a Command Hook to the wall and place your clothes hanger with the ties or scarves on it.

Here’s where things get tricky and frustrating. Once you get everything hung and in the closet, you may realize that the clothes hanger does a really poor job of staying level with ties on it. A slight bump will send all the hooks to one end of the clothes hanger.

To prevent this from happening, use a small amount of hot glue on each shower curtain hook to hold it in place.

Alternatively, if you find this solution isn’t stable enough and you have some extra space on the hanging rod in your closet, you can add the shower curtain hooks directly to the rod itself. This way, you won’t need glue and the ties will stay in place much better.

What’s in my CES 2019 bag? The best tech for writing, photos and video

id=”article-body” class=”row” section=”article-body” data-component=”trackCWV”>

eats amateurs for breakfast.

Having a successful CES is about the intangibles — knowing how to cluster your meetings, wearing the right shoes, making time to eat something decent, staying hydrated and always making sure you get at least six hours of sleep.

But if you’re at CES to create content, there’s even more to think about. Because if you don’t plan well, you’ll run out of power, fight in vain for bad WiFi and get storage-full messages in the middle of your best video opportunities.

After more than a decade of sometimes learning the hard way, here’s the kit I bring to produce the best content possible while carrying a bag that’s light enough to sling all week.

Disclaimer: CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

— While plenty of content creators get away with a tablet or a slim Chromebook, I need a full laptop for running Adobe Creative Cloud and processing professional photos and video. I have the 2016 model, and while I don’t love the Touch Bar that’s existed on models since then, I do dig Touch ID and the 2560×1600-pixel Retina Display. And the 13-inch has plenty of horsepower in a small package.

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch Touch bar

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch 201

— This is my personal phone, but I also use it to take and edit a lot of photos — both from the itself and to quickly grab images from my mirrorless cameras to edit and post on Twitter or for stories with tight turn-arounds. Something else that comes in especially handy during CES is that my two are on two different wireless carriers, so I can sometimes get a connection on one when the other is sputtering.

 — If I’m honest, this is mostly for watching movies and videos on the flights to-and-from CES. But, it also comes in super handy when my laptop is low on battery and I just need to open a text editor and write a story — when paired with the . While this 2017 model is still available, though, those buying now should check out the snazzier 2018 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros.

— I dig Sony mirrorless cameras for their compact size, silent shutter, electronic viewfinder, and other digital-first features. My go-to camera is the full-frame , but the crop-frame and its lenses are smaller, lighter and more portable so that’s why it’s in my bag for CES. The a6300 also makes such a great video camera that many professional wedding photographers use it as their second shooter to get background and b-roll shots.

— This lens is an amazing deal for under $500. It’s a perfect walkabout lens for the Sony a6300. While it doesn’t compare in quality to the breaktaking Sony 70-200mm GM f2.8, you can buy this crop-frame lens for a fourth of the price and sometimes even less. And considering that you’re putting it on a crop frame, it’s basically the equivalent of a 300mm telephoto. That makes it a powerful option at events. In terms of performance-for-value, I think it’s one of the best kit lenses in the world (and one of the most underrated).

— I also bring this tiny nifty-fifty for the e6300 because the one thing the Sony 55-210mm won’t give you is beautiful bokeh (blurred background). This 50mm excels at those shots, which is especially helpful for taking products photos.

— Love to use this small, thin and lightweight strap with the Sony a6300.

— There are plenty of steps to track at CES. Just roaming the show floors racks up lots of mojo. But, you also quickly learn that traffic is so bad at CES that it’s often faster to walk between locations than waiting in long taxi lines and then sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic. Even the 30-minute walk between The Venetian and fb88 the Las Vegas Convention Center is a lot more pleasant as a walk and well worth it for your mental and physical health. The show floors are so loud that getting wrist alerts about calls and text messages on the is also clutch at CES.

— I’ll just say it, I hate charging headphones or earbuds. I’m a reluctant convert to this part of the wireless revolution. And I still always carry a pair of wired earbuds as a backup. But, the have terrific sound and are super useful when you’re walking a lot, or listening to podcasts and watching movies on planes. And the ease with which they automatically pair to an iPhone and iPad might be the most impressive thing about them.

— Since so much of the tech industry descends on CES — over 150,000 people and still growing — it’s a great place to interview smart people and ask them about the stuff they are working on. These encounters can make great video clips. But, CES is so loud that a lot of interviews can be useless without a good directional microphone. Movo offers some great options that can plug into either a camera like the a6300 or a smartphone. I like this one because I can plug it directly into the 3.5mm jack and this model of the Movo also has a second mic so I can record my own audio as well as a guest and also listen at the same time to make sure it’s getting a good quality recording.

— Power banks are a dime a dozen. This one is my favorite because of its size and modest price tag.

— used to include one of these long corded adapters with all of its MacBooks, but now it only includes the dongle to plug your power brick directly into an outlet. Those bricks are sometimes so heavy that they fall out of an outlet or can’t squeeze into a crowded power strip. I still use one of the perfectly extension cables from an old MacBook, but fortunately, as well. They’re super handy when sitting on a floor somewhere at CES to work on your laptop and stretching to plug into an outlet.

— I have plenty of old USB SD card readers that I could plug into USB-C adapters, but that’s clunky. And now that Apple has removed SD card readers from MacBook Pros, dealing with SD cards from cameras can be a bit of pain. This inexpensive little dongle makes it simpler — and theoretically, a little faster for transferring a lot of big files.

— Again, I could plug an old USB Ethernet adapter into a USB-C adapter, but that gets kludgy and it also doesn’t take advantage of Gigabit Ethernet. And at CES, whenever you can plug into a wired internet connection, you do it because the wireless gets swamped.

— This app lets you transfer photos from Sony mirrorless cameras to your smartphone, where you can then quickly edit them with your favorite app to post on social media and/or in stories.

— Speaking of favorite photo editing apps, is still the best for fast photo editing app on mobile. It’s also pretty full-featured. And Google bought it in 2012 and has made it available for free on Android and iOS ever since.

— Snapseed is great for quick edits of photos that don’t need much help and aren’t going to be very high-profile. But for images that need more polish and that I really want to make pop, I import those to Lightroom. The great thing is that with Lightroom CC, next-generation editor, the mobile, web and desktop versions are nearly identical so it’s easy to import from any of those places and then switch devices to do the actual editing. Then, you can even switch again to export the file wherever you need it.
