Irvine’s Weekend Weather:  Keep Your Umbrella Close

This weekend’s forecast calls for cloudy skies with more rain.  There’s a possibility for morning showers on Saturday so be sure to keep an umbrella (and jacket) with you.  Sunday’s weather should be bit better with cloudy skies but no rain expected.  The good news is that there are lots of indoor events happening this weekend in Irvine, especially at the libraries, so there’s no need to let the wet weather “dampen” your plans.

Breakfast Republic (University Center, 4213 Campus Drive)

Breakfast Republic, located in the University Center across from UCI, is a popular breakfast spot, offering delicious food.  With their extensive and “hip” menu, there’s almost always a crowd.  While the indoor seating area can get a bit loud, the outdoor dog-friendly patio is more relaxing.  The restaurant is known for their uniquely flavored pancakes like the churro or cinnamon roll flavors.  However, I recommend one of the scrambles like their Portuguese sausage scramble. And don’t forget to order a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice to go along with your meal.

Breakfast Republic is open daily from 7am-3pm. For more information, check out their website by clicking here.


Weekend iPhone Tip by Jake Jacobs

Live Photos captures a snippet of animation rather than a single still photo.

In the Camera app, tap the Live Photos icon at top or side of the screen.  (It looks like a target.)  Once selected, it will turn on every time you open the Camera app.  To have it remember what it was set to when you last used the Camera, go to Settings → Camera → Preserve Settings → Live Photo → On.

View Live photo motion by 3D touching the screen.

Edit a Live Photo: you can trim it, shorten it, or mute its audio.

Extract a single frame from a clip to use as a still photo by tapping the Share button and then selecting Duplicate → Duplicate as Still Photo.

Change the Live Photo effect by swiping up on the photo and selecting Loop, Bounce, or Long Exposure.  Loop repeats the sequence over and over as if you put a loop of film in a projector.  Bounce goes back-and-forth as if you continuously toggled the projector from forward to reverse.  Long Exposure blurs a moving object such as a babbling brook or airplane moving across the sky, as though taken with a long shutter exposure.
