It's a brand new year and that means we can expect some brand new emojis heading to your phone.  The Unicode Consortium ash released its codes for 230 new emojis which will include a flamingo, otter, guide dog, waffle, garlic clove, sloth, hearing aid, mechanical arm and a juice box to name a few.  Also included a yawning emoji, a wagging finger, a pinching hand and a red drop of blood, which was designed to represent a menstruation cycle (although many feel it is not representative of  what is was designed for). The update, known as Emoji 12.0 is comprised of 59 distinct new emojis; 16 gender variations 155 skin tone options are also included. The release allows program developers to create the new emojis for their particular platform, which means there will be an update for your phone coming up in the next few weeks.
