5 Secret Restaurants in Paris

1. L’Etage de Pastavino – Saint Germain’s best-kept secret It just looks like an ordinary Italian deli (épicerie in French) on a bustling market street in Saint Germain … but it’s hiding a secret in a dark corner at the back. Indicated only by two blackboards nearly tucked out of sight, something well-worth discovering is at the top of this winding staircase … Disappear past the shelves of Italian produce and find yourself in a charming, chic and cosy dining room upstairs… Jazz music plays softly in the background.

We didn’t order this little plate, but it came anyway. We tried the four house cheeses of the day. Illustrations + comics - "I Think I Am in Friend-Love with You"  ...

BBC Two - Wikileaks: The Secret Life of a Superpower. Introduction To Making Games Part 1: Picking A Game Framework. Whether you are a seasoned game developer or just getting started making your own game, chances are you are going to need a good game framework to build upon.

Introduction To Making Games Part 1: Picking A Game Framework

A game framework could be as simple as a collection of code packed up into a library in a specific language, like JavaScript, or a more complex system of scripts, tools, and workflow built on a specific platform. Both types are designed to help speed up your game’s development. The last thing you want to be doing, especially when getting started, is reinventing the wheel. Carrot Is A Productivity And Social Motivation App With A Sense Of Humor. There are plenty of productivity and self-motivation apps on the market, but Hong Kong-based company Innopage wanted to create one that lets users indulge their whimsical side. iOS app Carrot‘s interface only allows you to fill-in a simple template and people have used the Mad Libs-like format to set goal and reward sets (called “carrots”) that are silly (“I am going to wake up at 6:30AM and reward myself with going back to sleep at 6:45AM”) and serious (“If I run 4.5km tonight then I will treat myself to a big breakfast tomorrow”).

Encouragement is crowdsourced from Carrot’s other users and your Facebook friends. “Carrot” is a reference to “stick and carrot”–the phrase that distills the two ways that people can be motivated, either by force or by will–and Innopage is not the only one to have jumped on the idea that it might make for a catchy name for a motivational to-do app. There is another Carrot already in existence in the U.S. that barks reminders at users.

War is described as people's rebellion against the assumption that everything needs to happen for a purpose, because humans do things without purpose, and this is what determines human history. Swinging dubstep its all gone jazzy (10 songs) 30 Fun Indie-Artist Covers of Pop Tunes. Covering a song can be tricky, but covering an extremely well-known song is downright dangerous. Most pop songs are either deeply loved or grossly hated and attempts to cover either can fall flat. We’ve compiled a list of the greatest pop covers by some of our favorite indie artists (taking liberties with the words “pop” and “indie”). 30. Ingrid Michaelson- “Toxic” (Britney Spears) Michaelson’s ukulele is a pleasant surprise in this rendition of Spears’ “Toxic,” coupled with her powerful vocals this song becomes surprisingly enjoyable.

Hamachi-Jalapeño Pizza. This is a variation on the Tuna Pizza I made a while ago and it was inspired by my old favorite dish at Nobu, the Hamachi-Jalapeño sashimi. Your Italian grandma’ will strongly disagree with the “pizza” part and you might even get slapped for it but it’s worth the risk. It’s a disk of flour tortilla that’s toasted, brushed with eel sauce and caramelized in the oven or under a broiler. Thin slices of fatty yellowtail tuna are arranged on top and brushed with a mixture of yuzu and soy sauce which has the wonderful effect of slightly curing the fish. Order of the Occult Hand. The Order of the Occult Hand is a whimsical secret society of American journalists who have been able to slip the meaningless and telltale phrase "It was as if an occult hand had…" in print as a sort of a game and inside joke. History[edit] The phrase was introduced by Joseph Flanders, then a police reporter of The Charlotte News, in the fall of 1965, when he reported on a millworker who was shot by his own family when he came back home late at night.
