The best dating sites for introverts, wallflowers, and shy people

Urban Hippie
Online dating is pretty much the best thing that ever happened to introverts.Now, you can scan for a potential mate without ever leaving the comfort zone that is your home. Of course, you'll eventually need to get up and go on a date. But hey, it's better than trying to find a single cutie at the bar or approaching a random person in a cafe.

Riding a Bird e-scooter through a busy pedestrian area? You could be automatically slowed down.On Wednesday, Bird announced the launch of its new Community Safety Zones, geofenced areas of high-pedestrian activity clearly marked in the app's map.

You'll also get a message in the app explaining why your scooter has slowed down. It's a much-needed move following the long-studied dangers of riding e-scooters for riders and pedestrians — e-scooter related injuries are no joke, and that significantly goes for pedestrians. Bird's e-scooters' top speeds range from 16 miles (25 kilometres) per hour for the Bird Air to 18 miles (28 kilometres) pe

If the "Save video" option doesn't come up, that means the TikTok user doesn't have downloads turned on for their account. But, you could always screen record the TikTok instead. To save a TikTok, follow the steps below. How to...
