Everyday Objects Stash Money, Secrets, Drugs, IDs Yiting Cheng just finished up a master's degree in design, but she could already teach James Bond a thing or two about stashing valuables. For her thesis project, Cheng designed a series of eight objects that ingeniously store secrets--from passwords to money to drugs to IDs. And you can see all of them in this nicely shot video (our favorite is the secrete drawer, hidden in the edge of a table, which is only accessible when attach a magnetic pull): According to Cheng: This project is about concealing valuables, secrets, bad habits and personal information in our workplaces. In other words, she hides things in plain sight, by hiding them inside objects so familiar that you'd never question their integrity.

The Infinite Monkey Cage Rose Marcus - Astrolink - home page | Rose Marcus, evolutionary astrologer, Vancouver Month’s Overview: September Astrolink Despite the obstacles or work that lie ahead, September opens with a fairly smooth running week. Even so, uncertainty can continue. Sept 8 delivers the third of three super full moons in a row, and the final one for 2014. Spread out over the day before and after, the Pisces full moon is aligned with Chiron (moon conjunct/sun opposite). A special one may hold great sway. When Pisces, Neptune, and Chiron combine with a super moon, the tides of mass consciousness are raised in some specific way. Chiron and the Pisces super full moon are engaged in a water element grand trine involving Ceres/Vesta/Saturn in Scorpio and Juno in Cancer. On the other end of the spectrum, the grand trine in water also facilitates opportunists, hidden agendas, power-plays, and inflitration. The Pisces super moon can see matters to do with water – volume, levels, quality, purification, distribution, mining, and rights claim our attention. Sept 1: Mercury into Libra 10:38pm

Machiavelli: So that its subjects will view it with admiration, as a chicken which has the daring and courage to boldly cross the road, but also with fear, for whom among them has the strength to contend with such a paragon of avian virtue?

10 of the world's biggest unsolved mysteries: Voynich Manuscript Voynich Manuscript Named after the Polish-American antiquarian bookseller Wilfrid M. Voynich, who acquired it in 1912, the Voynich Manuscript is a detailed 240-page book written in a language or script that is completely unknown. Its pages are also filled with colorful drawings of strange diagrams, odd events and plants that do not seem to match any known species, adding to the intrigue of the document and the difficulty of deciphering it. The original author of the manuscript remains unknown, but carbon dating has revealed that its pages were made sometime between 1404 and 1438. Theories abound about the origin and nature of the manuscript. One thing most theorists agree on is that the book is unlikely to be a hoax, given the amount of time, money and detail that would have been required to make it.
