Adult Desserts: Strawberry-Watermelon Popsicles & Champagne : Zomppa – International Food Magazine Remember popsicles? When was the last time you had a popsicle? One of those sticky, succulent, sweet and refreshing icons most generally associated with summertime heat and good times? My sister and I had a popsicle at least once a day during the summer. With the cacophonous sounds of crickets chirping in our backyard and the hazy orange-red sun settling into the horizon, my sister and I would steadily slurp on our sticky-sweet treats, hoping we could catch the popsicle drips before they oozed all over our chins and palms.

Ten Winter Ales Ranked Winter may still be more than a month away, but try telling that to your local craft-beer store (unless you don’t have a local craft-beer store, in which case you have my deepest sympathy).

Eight Paste staff and interns voted on the selections with the help of beer expert Eric Johnson of Athens’ Trappeze pub and Wild Heaven Craft Beers rattling off insight via speakerphone. Here, we count them down for you. (If your favorite winter beer is missing, let us know about them in the comments section below.)

Euclideon promises unlimited graphical detail Are Euclideon's promises the future of graphics or vapourware? Small Australian tech company Euclideon has released a new demo trailer for its graphics technology Unlimited Detail, which promises to ditch the dependency on polygons in games in favour of millions of cloud point technology. This should create richer game worlds that look more realistic, says Euclideon. The problem with polygons (as the video below brilliantly highlights) is that they’re computationally expensive and don’t give a realistic look when you look closely. ‘There is a better way to do graphics, which is used in medicine and the sciences, and that is to make everything out of tiny little atoms instead of flat panels [polygons].
