Best UK Web Hosting Reviews. This Stanley Kubrick-Alfred Hitchcock Mashup Is a Film Geek's Wet Dream. There's a genre of mildly pretentious film buff who geeks out over Stanley Kubrick films like A Clockwork Orange and 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Shining, and wants to talk about AI as a what-might-have been.

This Stanley Kubrick-Alfred Hitchcock Mashup Is a Film Geek's Wet Dream

And there's another genre of film geek who goes insane over Alfred Hitchcock, constantly streaming Vertigo and Psycho and Rear Window, and re-reading that Truffaut book 100 times. And sometimes these two groups overlap. This mashup called "The Red Drum Gateway" from a clever French outfit called Gump Studio brings together Kubrick and Hitchcock in a way that is extremely satisfying. It starts with an unhinged Jack Nicholson moving in across Jimmy Stewart's Greenwich Village apartment complex courtyard, and by the time Pvt. Lawrence from Full Metal Jacket shows up, things have gotten trippy. Uk.businessinsider.

Across the USA by Train for Just $213. Turns out, you don’t need a car to see America.

Across the USA by Train for Just $213

Traveling coast-to-coast across the United States by train is one of the world’s greatest travel experiences. Amazingly, it’s also one of the world’s greatest travel bargains — the 3,400-mile trip can cost as little as $213. The American railroads are reminiscent of a bygone era. These were the trains that tamed the Wild West, fueled the Gold Rush, and served as the backbone of the Industrial Revolution.

At its peak, it was the most luxurious mode of transportation that money could buy. Today, the USA still has an excellent rail network for visitors that’ll take you to almost all the towns and cities a visitor would want to see. In December 2011, I traveled from San Francisco to New York by train.This is my trip in pictures. The 3,400-mile coast-to-coast train ride takes 4 days if you do it without stopovers. The train doesn’t technically depart from San Francisco but 20 minutes away in Emeryville.

New Surreal Collages by Eugenia Loli

The nurse-turned-programmer-turned-journalist-turned-artist first began exploring digital collages in 2013 by scanning images from old vintage magazines and science textbooks that she assembled in Photoshop and shared on her Tumblr. You can follow more of Loli’s work on Instagram or Facebook, and she sells prints and other things in her shop. Uk.businessinsider. Getty Images, Justin Sullivan From the time Google was a tiny startup, it's been using an internal grading system for employees call Objectives and Key Results, or OKR.


OKR is a simple system that helps a company organize and execute its goals. It starts at the top, and travels down the chain of command within a company. Google didn't invent the OKR system. It came from Intel. A few years ago, Google Ventures partner Rick Klau gave a presentation on how OKR works. We watched Klau's presentation, and peeled out the slides to provide a how-to on how OKRs work, and how you can use them for yourself.

Domina los atajos de teclado de Adobe con esta chuleta

Por norma general, los diseñadores trabajamos con una (o dos, en caso de los programadores) manos en el teclado y la otra en el ratón, por lo que apartar la mano del teclado para coger el ratón y buscar en los menús lo que queremos encontrar es una pérdida de tiempo. Es un proceso que a la larga nos hace perder mucho tiempo. Los atajos de teclado fueron creados para evitar perder tiempo en coger el ratón y trabajar más rápido.

7 Legal Herbs That Can Alter Your Consciousness and Super-Charge your Dreams

Throughout our daily lives we are more likely to coast by using our automated behaviors and modes to experience our reality, but at night those boundaries are broken down and our spirits fly.
