Puzzle time once again for us BlackBerry 10 users. Pot the Ball is a free download which is ad-supported, although you can grab the paid edition if you get hooked - which may well be possible! If you like a challenge with a difference this one may well be just what you've been looking for.
I'm a pretty big fan of platformer games so when the latest game from Funkoi called Eyebert appeared in BlackBerry World I had to give it a go. Eyebert mixes both the platformer and endless runner genres that are popular these days and with it coming from Funkoi, I knew it would be good. In the game, you have to help Eyebert and Favvie run across weird alien worlds, getting them to their next ride through their space adventure together with the ultimate goal being to collect jewels to unlock upgrades and challenging bonus levels.

I’m delighted to attach a short PDF on ‘How to Open with a BANG!’
Research has showed you only got 7-10 seconds to make that first impression and then by the end of the magic minute the mind is made up!
So make sure your opening is relevant, powerful and precise.
'Learning in the fast lane...'
(Salaam - Peace)
During my sessions when facilitating Present with Impact and whilst working on executive coaching sessions on this skill, we discuss the importance of the vocal impact (known as paralinguistics).
Research over the past 40+ years has shown that listeners are impacted by 3 areas: Body Language, Vocal Impact and Choice of Words Spoken. The percentage of impact is 55% (Body Language) and 45% (Voice and Words Spoken).
Have a think – which speaker impresses you the most? Now ask yourself , why? I bet you, one of the reasons will be his/her voice!
During my sessions, delegates often say ‘my voice is weak’, ‘my voice is monotone’, ‘I don’t sound energetic’, ‘my voice is not loud enough’, and so on.
Well the good news is: YOU CAN IMPROVE YOUR VOICE , if you really want to! I did and so can YOU!
Attached is a very short PDF with some practical tips on making your voice more expressive.
Enjoy and use to your benefit.

Did you know that BlackBerry 10 devices have a built-in video editor? This powerful feature allows you edit the length of a video, crop and/or rotate as well as apply different enhancements such as adjusting the brightness or contrast. To help you get started, here’s a quick 1-2-3 on how to edit the length of a video using your BlackBerry 10 device.
Step 1 – Record some video
If you don’t have a video on your device already, record something using the Video Camera. You can edit videos that you may have copied to your device previously but keep in mind it must be a supported media type. To find out more about what types of media BlackBerry 10 devices support check out the BlackBerry 10 media support website.
Step 2 – Edit the video
To edit a video that you’ve just recorded, tap the preview option that appears in the bottom-left corner of the Video Camera app, followed by tapping Edit in the toolbar. You also have the option to edit previously recorded videos. Open the Videos app, select the video you’d like to edit, tap the three dot icon in the bottom right and select Edit.
After doing this, Length along the bottom toolbar will be selected automatically so all you need to do is adjust the sliders to your desired locations. After adjusting the length, optionally tap on Crop or Enhance to further customize your video. When you have finished making edits, tap Save in the top right corner to save a new copy of the video with your edits. The video will be saved in the same location as the original video using the same filename, adding “_edit” to the end.
Depending on the size of the video you are saving, feel free to multitask while the Save process runs in the background. You’ll know the process is finished when the Saving dialog no longer appears.
Step 3 – Sharing the video
After saving your new video, consider sharing it with others across your favorite social networks, or combine it with other memories you’ve captured using BlackBerry Story Maker. You can also copy the video to your PC or Mac using BlackBerry Link.
