The New York pizza guide, from old-school slices to nouveau pies Denino's Pizzeria & Tavern Photograph: Michael Skigen With the ranks of New York pizza spots growing exponentially each year, Gotham is a veritable pie mecca.

Humans Have a Lot More Than Five Senses Today I found out humans have a lot more than five senses. It turns out, there are at least nine senses and most researchers think there are more like twenty-one or so. Just for reference, the commonly held definition of a “sense” is “any system that consists of a group of sensory cell types that respond to a specific physical phenomenon and that corresponds to a particular group of regions within the brain where the signals are received and interpreted.” The commonly held human senses are as follows: Sight: This technically is two senses given the two distinct types of receptors present, one for color (cones) and one for brightness (rods).Taste: This is sometimes argued to be five senses by itself due to the differing types of taste receptors (sweet, salty, sour, bitter, and umami), but generally is just referred to as one sense.

12 | High-Speed Photography Turns Water Droplets Into Liquid Sculptures The water droplet is the quintessential cliché of high-speed photography. Any Internet search will produce a dizzying number of bursting and rippling liquid surfaces. Yet in the right hands, even the familiar can be extraordinary. Markus Reugels, a German amateur photographer who has perfected the theme, has produced an exhaustive catalog of his favorite subject captured in every conceivable, fleeting pose. What began as an ordinary domestic exercise--taking pictures for the family album--has become a “lovely hobby,” involving many hours of trial and error using instructions gleaned from the Internet. Reugels thickens the water with guar gum to create the consistency of milk or cream. For those interested in giving the technique a whirl, Reugels recommends using a plastic bag with a small hole, a tripod, and a remote trigger. Reugels hopes to break into commercial photography, though he doesn’t anticipate abandoning his water-drop experiments.

How Bill Nye Became The Science Guy. And A Ballet Shoe Inventor. And a Political Voice When Bill Nye tells a story about getting hit in the head, he stops to remind you about inertia, “a property of matter.” He’ll ask you how many electric switches are in your iPhone and casually chat about SpaceShipOne. It seems as though Nye were born to play the role for which he is best known: “the science guy,” an amusing, bow-tie-wearing teacher with an entertaining experiment to go with every scientific phenomena. But his career trajectory reads much more like a delicate string of happenstance than a born destiny. Looking a bit like Steve Martin started his career as a comic. But listen for a fair length of time to Nye talk about his string of happy accidents, and you'll realize he's wired for disruption--personal and otherwise. Nye has a knack for embracing chance opportunities. A video clip of an interview Nye gave in February went viral this month, attracting more than 4.6 million views (at the time of this post) and national media attention.

47 Mind-Blowing Psychology-Proven Facts You Should Know About Yourself I’ve decided to start a series called 100 Things You Should Know about People. As in: 100 things you should know if you are going to design an effective and persuasive website, web application or software application. Or maybe just 100 things that everyone should know about humans! The order that I’ll present these 100 things is going to be pretty random. So the fact that this first one is first doesn’t mean that’s it’s the most important.. just that it came to mind first. Dr. <div class="slide-intro-bottom"><a href="

Um, Maybe You Shouldn't Have Hidden From the Zombies in That Church... I keep posting in these but of course you keep deleting my opinions. You can't just change the definition of the phrase "fine art" because you like this art. It's skilled art, it's great art, hell maybe it's even "high art," but fine art is a thing and this is not that thing. That doesn't mean it's less creative or beautiful than other art, but it is not fine art. It is concept art, it is art that is meant to define a world in which a game will be made. I don't blame you for wanting people to appreciate videogames as art, but just because they can't be "fine art" (yet), doesn't mean they AREN'T art. Slapping an arbitrary "fine" in front of the article doesn't prove it to Roger Ebert or anyone else who doesn't respect video games, and it also is a big slap in the face to the other articles that you label as just regular "art."
