1. Hate dirt? You'll love this Shark robovac - now discounted nearly $200!
The Shark EZ Robot is your easy path to smart cleaning. After each session, your robot automatically empties itself into the bagless self-emptying base, which holds LOTS of dirt and debris, so you can forget about vacuuming for weeks (and still enjoy a clean space). This Shark fan wrote, "I bought this because I have two dogs, a husband that works in construction and a 16-year-old son who has no idea what it means to wipe his feet before entering the house. I can now tell a difference in how my house smells on the daily! The trash box on the base holds a lot of dog hair and red clay dirt. I'm so thankful for this!"
The Acer Chromebook is a great starter laptop or terrific tech addition to any household. It loads large webpages fast and has a crisp video display. Also, mutitasking is a snap since it can run multiple pages at the same time. And because the Chromebook is powered by Google, it comes with all the Google apps you know and love. A recent convert wrote, "Chromebook is new to me, and I was quite impressed how quickly it set up once I entered my Google information. It's lightweight, portable and weighs under four pounds. It has a very thin and streamlined footprint, and I can bring it along with me when I travel, and even to bed to watch videos. The screen is clear and large, the sound is crisp."
Enjoy more delicious meals and fewer greasy calories - for only $38! - with Gourmia's 6-Quart Digital Air Fryer.

Meanwhile, 12 One-Touch Cooking Functions allow you to air fry, bake, dehydrate and so much more - with just a tap! Perfect for the at-home chef that doesn't want to do too much of the heavy lifting! This foodie discovered the secret to healthy french fries thanks to Gourmia: "I recently started a diet and was told to try out one of these air fryer machines. I loved this fryer. It made eating french fries a possibility! I really like the one-touch buttons. The french fry button cooks them for the perfect time and temp."
You'll rarely see this size and style dip below $40 at other retailers and, right now, Walmart is offering this sleek mirror for half that. This minimalist mirror with natural wood frame works helps to bounce light around a space, make smaller spaces feel bigger and simply add a chic statement to a wall. Weighing in at only seven and half pounds, you won't have to fret over finding studs or buying toggle bolts (though, for peace of mind, it can't hurt!). And for only $20, get multiples! Upgrade a bathroom or throw in the round shape among a gallery wall. You can't go wrong with this classic looking glass (or the price).
Do you have someone on your list who's in their blue period? Help them nurture their inner artist with this 112-piece supply set.

In short - it includes everything needed to create sketches, landscapes and portraits. It also includes an artist's mannequin -- a tool used to help artists learn how to draw the body --and a case to keep everything together.
Most supply sets of this size retail for well over $50, so this $25 special buy is not to be missed.

World number three and reigning British Open champion Cameron Smith overcame a final round challenge and electrical storms to win the Australian PGA Championships for a third time Sunday by three strokes.
KOCHI, India (Reuters) -More than 80 people were wounded in India as villagers protesting to halt construction of the $900-million Vizhinjam port project by India's Adani Group clashed with police in Kerala state, the latest escalation in a months-long strike. The protests, by a mostly Christian fishing community against the project led by billionaire Gautam Adani's $23-billion ports business, have forced the latter to stop work on the port, seen as a potential and lucrative rival to those in Dubai, Singapore and Sri Lanka. Over the weekend, police arrested some protesters who blocked Adani's construction vehicles from entering the port, despite a court order for work to resume.
Somali police launched an investigation Sunday after 20 foreigners were discovered near territory controlled by the Al-Shabaab militant group claiming to be fishermen who had been held hostage for years.
