 Watch the Mini Manbo robot (probably) find melted radioactive uranium fuel rods IN 2011, THE FUKUSHIMA DAIICHI NUCLEAR POWER PLANT EXPERIENCED A MELTDOWN due to damage caused by a tsunami following the Tōhoku earthquake. Ever since then, the plant has been leaking extremely dangerous radiation into the Pacific Ocean and surrounding area. The problem with radiation, is, obviously, that it’s dangerous. So dangerous that you can’t get near it to contain it, and even robots sent into...

Photo of the Day: “Peek” by Dan Parratt

PHOTO BY DAN PARRATT, FLICKR   EVEN ON FIRST GLANCE, THIS PHOTO BY DAN PARRATT, IS NOT AS MUNDANE AS THE SUBJECT MATTER SUGGESTS, In a great way, there’s something very painterly about this composition, and I also realized that it  is very appropriate for a Thanksgiving photo pick. There’s just something about the lighting. It has a rich softness and detail to it that really drew me into this photograph. I really love how the exposure allows me to see everything in this photo...

Photo of the Day: “Road to Enlightenment” by Matt Walker

PHOTO BY MATT WALKER, FLICKR   THIS VIBRANT PHOTO, BY MATT WALKER, IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE LONG EXPOSURE, with the lights of traffic appearing as a strip of neon lights running through the wilderness. I really love the perspective of this photo, taken in California, taking full advantage of height as well as the perfect time of day to capture very dramatic clouds, a beautiful orange sky, and commuters completely unaware they are collectively making this art possible simply by going on their daily...
Tesla Announces Its New Roadster, and It’s So Fast That I Definitely Couldn’t Handle It, At All

Tesla Announces Its New Roadster, and It’s So Fast That I Definitely Couldn’t Handle It, At All

ELON MUSK REVEALED THE TESLA ROADSTER LAST THURSDAY as a total surprise during the Tesla Semi-Truck reveal. A new car out-of-the-blue from Tesla is surprise enough, but wait, there’s more.   Commenting on the Roadster’s stats, Musk himself states what everybody is thinking: “These numbers sound nutty, but they’re real.”   The stats below rival, or beat, the most expensive, desirable and exclusive production cars currently in existence. These cars cost millions,...
Guide: The “Right Way” to Order Starbucks Drinks, Simple or Complex

Guide: The “Right Way” to Order Starbucks Drinks, Simple or Complex

 ONE OF OUR READERS JUST ASKED ME how to order modified drinks at Starbucks, and as I was typing a response, I realized I should put it up here for everyone to see.   What am I even talking about?   In order to modify your Starbucks drink to your liking, you need to know your options, and that starts here. The ingredients in a Starbucks drink are said in a specific order. This is the same as the order on the cup, read from top to bottom, and how Baristas are trained to write them. Rattling off...

Photo of the Day: “southern lesser long-nosed armadillo” by Alexander Dülks

PHOTO BY ALEXANDER DÜLKS, FLICKR   THIS ARCHITECTURAL PHOTO, BY ALEXANDER DÜLKS, IS PERFECTLY COMPOSED. And has perfect contrast, having a drama to it without being overly dark or bright.   I love good (and interesting) architecture, and this definitely fits that description. This is a photo is of HEMISFÈRIC, a building designed by architect Santiago Calatrava, and is, believe it or not, actually a movie theater in València, Spain. Featuring IMAX and 3D screenings, and being part of the City...

Starbucks Toasted White Chocolate Mocha Review: The White Mocha You Know and Love, But With a Little Edge, Plus Cranberries

IMAGE FROM STARBUCKS I FINALLY GOT A CHANCE TO TRY THE STARBUCKS TOASTED WHITE MOCHA after planning to do so since before its release.     Let’s start with Starbucks’ description of the Toasted White Chocolate Mocha:   “Our rich espresso, steamed milk and flavors of caramelized white chocolate are topped with whipped cream and candied cranberry sugar. And like the holidays, this drink is here, then gone.”   My Recommendation       As always, I recommend getting hot...

Mr. Robot, Season 3, Ep. 6: eps3.5_kill-pr0cess.inc, Recap and Analysis

 
 TAKING PLACE DIRECTLY AFTER THE LAST (EXTREMELY INTENSE) EPISODE, we are back following Elliot’s attempt to prevent Stage 2 (blowing up the E Corp paper records building) from going off. We learn quite a bit in this episode about key story components that drive the show. Lots of Mr. Robot interaction, lots of Angela’s motivations and worldview, big moves from Zhang and his Dark Army, as well as some clues about the nature of the entire world of Mr. Robot. Exciting and effective...

Photo of the Day: “Take a coffee break” by Kappo Moriyoshi (明遊快)

PHOTO BY KAPPO MORIYOSHI (明遊快), FLICKR   THIS PHOTO, BY KAPPO MORIYOSHI (明遊快), IS MYSTERIOUS. I’d never guess it was taken in an airport, but it was.   This great composition features a barely-visible silhouette seen through glass, and excellent use of dynamic lighting. This is candid photography done very well, and it really stood out to me.   Click here to see our other Photos of the...
