February 16, 2011 Ahh, someday I'll make my own one of these. February 15, 2011 Whee! February 14, 2011. Luminous Mushroom Night Light. I was originally going to use part of a birch branch I cut from our tree (it had been partly rotted).

Luminous Mushroom Night Light

Once I started sawing the rotten part off, two spiders and an earwig crawled out and I lost my nerve. I considered my other options. A smooth, decaying stick I found in the strawberry bed seemed aesthetically pleasing... but all the cracks almost guaranteed lots of bugs. The maple branch I'd removed from our tree a few weeks ago was almost certain to have very few things that might crawl out and bite me, but it just wasn't very interesting to look at. Finally, I decided on the root end of some evergreen bushes I recently ripped up. Funny Hugh Laurie & Stephen Fry Comedy Sketch! 'Your Name, Sir?'. Imeüble 2.5 dimension shelf system by Bjørn Jørund Blikstad. Second and a Half Dimension Shelves This project goes by the name “Imeüble” and it’s a shelving system that accesses not just your eyeballs and book-storing hands, it works with your mind to help you store information the same way you learn to associate words to their meanings!

The easiest comparison is one the designer uses: when you read the word “cornfield,” you imagine a field full of corn, not the word “cornfield.” In that the shelf appears to be 2D but is actually 3D, this whole system works in the same environment of learning.

What The ‘New Heart of Wall Street’ Looks Like « Data Center Knowledge

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. The New York Times devoted more than 3,000 words Sunday to a feature story on the rise of high-speed trading operations. But the Times offered no visuals of any of the facilities housing the servers supporting the surge in electronic trading. So here’s a glimpse inside the data centers powering the “new heart of Wall Street.” The photo above provides a look at the inside of a data center operated by Equinix, the company that runs the “New York Four” facility in Secaucus described by the Times as a “vast technological sanctum.”

“While this ‘Tron’ landscape is dominated by the titans of Wall Street, it affects nearly everyone who owns shares of stock or mutual funds, or who has a stake in a pension fund or works for a public company,” The Times writes. Like most major financial companies, Direct Edge uses more than one data center provider. Driscoll Middle School Trick Play.

In a new study, researchers report that bumblebees were able to figure out the most efficient routes among several computer-controlled "flowers," quickly solving a complex problem that even stumps supercomputers.

Bees Solve Complex Problems Faster Than Supercomputers

We already know bees are pretty good at facial recognition, and researchers have shown they can also be effective air-quality monitors. Bumblebees can solve the classic "traveling salesman" problem, which keeps supercomputers busy for days. They learn to fly the shortest possible route between flowers even if they find the flowers in a different order, according to a new British study. The traveling salesman problem is a problem in computer science; it involves finding the shortest possible route between cities, visiting each city only once.

Bees are the first animals to figure this out, according to Queen Mary University of London researchers. This is no small feat, especially considering the tiny size of bee brains. Electrolux Pure Washer – Eco Automatic Sink Concept by AHHA Project. Split-Face Sink, Very Nice!

10 Unbelievable, Unlikely Animal Friendships. Friends and enemies in the animal world tend to be pretty clear-cut -- there are some species that just weren't born to get along. But as these unlikely pairs show, even Mother Nature doesn't set things in stone: Who says that orangutans and tigers, dogs and deer, cats and birds can't all be friends somehow? From a sheep that brought a baby elephant out of a deep depression to natural enemies that snuggle down together for every nap, these 10 heart-wrenching relationships are incredible and unforgettable.

Take this macaque, for example, who, according to The Daily News, was rescued from Neilingding Island in China after his mother abandoned him and left him for dead: His recovery was dragging until he made friends with this pigeon, and now the two are rarely apart.
