The tick-tick-tick sound in "We Need to Talk About Kevin" could be anything, you think at first. An alarm clock, a bomb, even sprinklers with their tell-tale spinning and spitting. In a way, the sound represents all three in this movie about a broken relationship between a mother and a defiant, manipulative son and the cataclysmic consequences. As the movie opens, you know that something awful has happened although you don't (yet) know the toll or specifics. But it's obvious that Eva (Tilda Swinton) is a reviled, tense and wary woman whose house and car are vandalized with red paint and probably not for the first time. 'We Need to Talk About Kevin'
Have you ever wished you could go back in time and have a conversation with one of the greatest minds in history? Well, you can’t sorry, they’re dead. Unless of course you’re clairaudient, be my guest.
This is part of Future Forward, a new, semi-regular series exploring how cutting-edge technologies might be applied. The Problem Antennas are pretty much always one of two things: bulky and effective, or small and prone to failure. Engineers have been brilliant about milking more and more from radio waves in our wireless spectrum, but despite developments like 4G and over-the-air HD broadcasting, our antennas are based upon antique technology. Dropped calls, fuzzy pictures: Some of it’s due to the nature of the frequencies themselves, but most of these issues could be fixed with better antennas. The Breakthrough A company called Chamtech has developed a nano-capacitor-infused spray , a very powerful antenna in a can.
Somehow, ritual drunk-conversation concerning team captains for the apocalypse has become a major part of the lives of 20-somethings. Having been matured in the Grandaddy-crowned masterpiece film (put “A.M. 180” on and forget that you have a job) 28 Days Later and the best-selling Zombie Survival Guide , we’re all a little too ready to deal with the 2012 of our dreams. “The Safe House,” designed by KWK Promes, starts to get eerily close to something I could work with, if say 200 bludgeoned members of the undead army came over to eat their way into borrowing some sugar. “The most essential item for our clients was acquiring the feeling of maximum security,” begins the designers’ website in the summary of the structure.

Let us be clear: Baking soda is not going to permanently cure your acne or turn back the cruel hand of time. But if you’re looking to detoxify your body and your household, this multitasking ingredient will make your life easier (and more beautiful) without denting your coffers. Mom may have taught you that baking soda will make your bread rise and your fridge smell better, but did you know of its many cosmetic applications? Even the ancient Egyptians—and what beauty post would be complete without them?—used a compound similar to baking soda as soap. The stuff is antiseptic, antifungal, and lightly exfoliating.
(click images for detail) For the better part of three decades multidisciplinary artist Guy Laramee has worked as a stage writer, director, composer, a fabricator of musical instruments, a singer, sculptor, painter and writer. Among his sculptural works are two incredible series of carved book landscapes and structures entitled Biblios and The Great Wall , where the dense pages of old books are excavated to reveal serene mountains, plateaus, and ancient structures. Of these works he says: So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint Romantic landscapes.
Part of Nietzsche’s problem with history, science, and the knowledge drive in general is that these activities typically presuppose that "knowing" is possible, and that truth is more valuable than untruth, or appearance. It is supposed that there is another world, one free from our perceptions, which can be known if we can find an objectifying lens through which the real nature of things, i.e. inherent properties, things-in-themselves, essences, can be understood. Nietzsche sees most endeavors concerned with discovering the truth as attempts to separate the knower from the known in such a way that they can separate their perceptions (the way the world seems) from the perceived object (an entity that has an existence free from what we bring to the word.) With this separation of the world into "the world of mere appearances" and the "real world," objects are seen as things-in-themselves, with inherent meanings that are non-revisable, objective, and universal ("The Philosopher" 133).

If you are in the fitness and bodybuilding world for some time, you've probably seen there is a ton of information about training, nutrition and supplements on the internet, magazines, television... Some of it is very useful, but unfortunately, most of it is very misleading. Often, when people find themselves overflown with information, they can pick bad advice, or even fail to act, mainly because they get confused and don't know what is good and what is bad for them.
