jQuery('.owl-carousel').owlCarousel({
  loop: true,
  stagePadding: 200,
  margin: 40,
  nav: true,
  navText: [
    "<i class='fa fa-caret-left'></i>",
    "<i class='fa fa-caret-right'></i>"
  ],
  autoplay: true,
  autoplayHoverPause: true,
  responsive: {
    0: {
      items: 1,
      stagePadding: 0
    },
    600: {
      items: 2,
      stagePadding: 0
    },
