All eyes were on Outkast at Coachella when André 3000 and Big Boi performed together for the first time in seven years. So it was only fitting that, like caged animals at a zoo, the hip-hop headliners started their set inside a cube that displayed nifty, ever-changing designs. Big Boi and André 3000 also each had time alone onstage to spit out songs from their solo careers. Meanwhile, they sprinkled the set with cameos from Janelle Monae and Future. "This is my favorite group in the entire world and what we are witnessing tonight is history — I am so honored, so I want y'all to scream for Outkast," Monae said after performing "Tightrope" (go to the 37:50 mark to watch) with Big Boi. mashable mashable
Twitter Rolls Out Real-Time Notifications on the Web
Twitter today announced it has acquired Android lockscreen app startup Cover. The app, which only launched as a beta in October, will remain on Google Play “for now.” Cover says there are no plans to kill the app as the team switches its focus to working at Twitter. That being said, the startup didn’t rule out “changes down the road” and said it would provide an update accordingly. “Twitter, like Cover, believes in the incredible potential of Android. They share our vision that smartphones can be a lot smarter — more useful and more contextual — and together we’re going to make that happen,” Cover explained in its acquisition announcement.

One Million Kg Challenge launched to get S'poreans to keep fit One Million Kg Challenge launched to get S'poreans to keep fit SINGAPORE: The Health Promotion Board (HPB) has launched a first-of-its-kind nationwide challenge to encourage Singaporeans who are overweight and at risk of becoming obese to battle the bulge. According to the National Health Survey 2010, 1.7 million Singaporeans have a body mass index (BMI) of 23 or above, and they are at risk of obesity-related diseases such as diabetes, heart diseases and stroke. HPB says one million Singaporeans with BMI of 23 or more are either already pre-diabetic, or suffer at least one or more chronic condition such as diabetes. The BMI is a measure of body fat based on an adult's height and weight. For Asians, a BMI value of 23 and above indicates that a person's weight is outside of the healthy weight range for his or her height.
Two decades ago, I crossed the United States by train for the first time. I left Portland, Oregon, and the gloomy shadow of my first break-up with my first American girlfriend, went up to Seattle, then crossed a restorative, fluffy-cloud-filled Big Sky to the plains of North Dakota and Minnesota and Wisconsin, where we were briefly halted by a cow on the track.
