Treehotel, Sweden & FAN THE FIRE - StumbleUpon UPDATE: Treehotel are now offering their Mirrorcube treehouse as a turnkey solution available to the public Don’t get me wrong, cities are great. Hell, I currently live in London and before my days are over want to spend a serious amount more time in New York, LA, Tokyo, Paris, Sydney and more, but when you need to really get away, it should be to the Treehotel, not the Waldorf. An eco-based design hotel concept, each “room” is wonderfully individual with stunning design and even better views. With the plan to build 24 new treehouses over 5 years, a handful are already in place, and miles from civilisation offering the perfect, isolated getaway, just a touch south of the Arctic Circle.

A dog’s seeing eye dog Lily is a Great Dane that has been blind since a bizarre medical condition required that she have both eyes removed. For the last 5 years, Maddison, another Great Dane, has been her sight. The two are, of course, inseparable. (via Weird Universe, Daily Record, The Sun) City with Superfast Internet Invites Innovators to Play Citizens in Chattanooga, Tennessee, have access to one-gigabit-per-second Internet—that’s 100 times the U.S. national average, and fast enough to download a two-hour movie in about five seconds. The only question is: what to do with it? The city is hoping a contest with $300,000 in prize money will help answer that question. Some early entries include health-care applications, such as transferring larger files like CT scans in real-time so that specialists can serve a larger area. But even if some great ideas come out of the contest, the fact remains that most people in the U.S. still have access to only relatively slow Internet connections. Furthermore, where superfast Internet is available in the U.S., it is typically prohibitively expensive. Even so, in Tennessee they are optimistic that the contest will bring rewards.
The Most Frightening Bridge Ever Storseisundet Bridge (Norwegian: Storseisundetbrua) is the longest of the eight bridges that make up the Atlanterhavsveien (“The Atlantic Road”), the road connection from the mainland Romsdal peninsula to the island of Averøya in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. It is a bridge on one of Norway’s most scenic and popular tourist roads – the Atlantic Ocean Road (Atlanterhavsveien in Norwegian). The bridge named Storseisundet makes a sharp bend as it jumps over a number of small islands and waterways. The approach to the bridge looks scary as the bridge seems to end abruptly and as if any attempt to proceed would result into the vehicle flying out and dropping into the waters below. Storseisundet Bridge is a cantilever bridge that is 260 metres (850 ft) long and with a maximum clearance to the sea of 23 metres (75 ft). 1. Ads by Google
An interview with Adele, the mother behind "Mila's Daydreams" In January 2012, Harper Collins published Adele's book called "When My Baby Dreams," filled of the pictures from Mila's Daydreams! You can purchase the book on Amazon. Ariel discovered Adele's website Mila's Daydreams last week, and immediately knew that we had to have an interview with Adele! The premise of the blog is deliciously simple yet unbelievably brilliant–every day while her daughter Mila naps, Adele tries to imagine what Mila's dreams are like. Then, she helps bring them into the non-dream world and captures it with her camera. What inspired you to start this wonderful project? You're on maternity leave from a career in advertising. In Daydream photos, I just adore my child — I don't think target groups or results. Tell me about your process of creating one of Mila's daydreams. Then I quickly arranged the set and put her middle of it. It took about 3 minutes, and I was ready to upload the photo. Does Mila ever wake up when you're posing her? What does your partner think?
Lofted Forest Home: Organic Curves & Natural Materials Good things come to those who wait – particularly in a work of uniquely detailed and highly curved architecture. Nearly a decade in the making, this structure by Robert Harvey Oshatz is much like a tree house – lofted toward the top of the canopy around it – only bigger, grander, more complex and curved than most any tree house in the world. The perimeter of the structure is pushed out into the forest around it, curving in and out to create views as well as a sense of intimacy with the coniferous and deciduous tree cover. The curved, organic mix of materials continues to the interior of this elevated forest home – a conceptual play on the fluidity and complexity of music (the source of inspiration for the architect and client in the design).
Hack Facebook Password – Facebook Hacking Need to hack someone’s Facebook password? Well, you’re at the right place! In this post I’ll show you some of the possible ways to hack Facebook password. Also, at the end of this post, I will be discussing about some of the Facebook hacking methods that are simply scam and do not work! Every day I get a lot of emails from people requesting me to hack Facebook passwords of their spouse, girlfriend or boyfriend so as to reveal their secret relationships (if any). However, I strongly deny any such requests as I do not provide any paid hacking service on my site. Possible Ways to Hack a Facebook Password: With my experience of over 9 years in the field of ethical hacking and IT security, all I can tell you is that, there are only TWO ways to successfully hack a Facebook password. 1. Keylogging refers to simply recording each and every keystroke that is typed on a specific computer’s keyboard. Hence, for a novice computer user, this method is the easiest way to hack a Facebook password. 2.

Reclaimed Farmhouse Beams Made Into Eclectic "Farmpunk" Furniture Photos: Unite Two Design For those who find the relentless uniformity of modern, mass-produced furniture tedious (and not to mention environmentally unfriendly), there's always the option of furnishings that are made from recycled materials, like these pieces by the resourceful American trio Unite Two Design. Combining unlikely elements of rustic with the industrial, Unite Two Design's distinctive furniture is handcrafted from farm beams that are reclaimed locally, and odds and ends of industrial machinery. Calling their unique, juxtaposed style "farmpunk", it's cool to see that sometimes each component can hail from different centuries altogether. According to their website, their inspiration comes from being creative with what's at hand: In the beginning we embraced the philosophy of use what you have or find and create with it, which shows true ingenuity. This creative reconciliation between rustic and industrial is apparent in all their work. Like this?
