The Magic Wallet. Slim and Unique Design. RFID protection. by Tim Rich We were always carried minimalistic wallets. Although you can find a large number of thin, stylish and functional wallets on the market, we always wanted our wallets to have an individual design and unique functions. We have made different prototypes for the wallet during the initial testing phases. One day we remember making our own wallets out of cardboard and rubber bands as a child and became intrigued by the idea and started working on modernizing the concept. The search for an ideal model of " The Magic Wallet” took approximately a year.

The Bucky-Gandhi Design Institution › Free science and engineering in the global public interest A follow up to my bitcoin magazine interview on natural monopolies, cartels and power law distribution of wealth.

Gentle Apocalypse SHENZHENREADER TECHNOLOGY CO.,LTD 中文版 | English After-sales Service Quality Assurance Paul Kingsnorth The Moneyless Manifesto Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth. – Henry David Thoreau We were crunching our way through the fresh January snow one blue-skied afternoon, my little hand in hers, when my mum gently told me that Santa Claus wasn’t real. She was being kind of course, a pinch of tough love to save me the ignominy of telling the more streetwise kids what he had brought me that Christmas.

How To Build An Outdoor Cob Oven For $20 Technology has brought the art of making food to a new level which may in fact ruin someone on the long term if they don’t have the necessary knowledge of dealing without the appliances and devices at our disposal nowadays. Try baking something without fossil fuels or electricity for a week and you’ll find out how really hard that is. But if you’re lucky enough to have the space for a cob oven, you can make it just fine. For building the oven from scratch, you will need some hard work, positioning the stones for the foundation, continuing with filling with clay mortar, making the arch doorway and cob dome, and finishing with clay or sand mortar between the bricks. The Wim Hof Method *Revealed* – How to Consciously Control Your Immune System We previously published an article about Wim Hof, holder of 20 Guinness World Records for withstanding extreme temperatures. He has climbed Everest and Kilimanjaro in only shorts and shoes, stayed comfortably in ice baths for hours, and run a full marathon in the highest desert (50 degrees celsius, 122 Fahrenheit) with no water & food. Wim is able to accomplish these feats with ease through the use of ‘The Wim Hof Method‘ — a breathing technique that allows you to control the autonomous systems of the body.

Nasa-funded study: industrial civilisation headed for 'irreversible collapse'? A new study partly-sponsored by Nasa's Goddard Space Flight Center has highlighted the prospect that global industrial civilisation could collapse in coming decades due to unsustainable resource exploitation and increasingly unequal wealth distribution. Noting that warnings of 'collapse' are often seen to be fringe or controversial, the study attempts to make sense of compelling historical data showing that "the process of rise-and-collapse is actually a recurrent cycle found throughout history." Cases of severe civilisational disruption due to "precipitous collapse - often lasting centuries - have been quite common." The independent research project is based on a new cross-disciplinary 'Human And Nature DYnamical' (HANDY) model, led by applied mathematician Safa Motesharrei of the US National Science Foundation-supported National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center, in association with a team of natural and social scientists.
