Fun with Foam Printing - Easy Tutorial
I loved this idea because not only can you recycle these horrid polystyrene containers, but the process is really simple. You could even use tracing paper and trace your design so you don't even need to be able to draw.

Materials needed: Foam or polystyrene container pencil paint or ink small roller 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Happy printing! Original image courtesy of themetapicture

Whether you’re a senior preparing for campus recruiting or a recent graduate still hunting for a job, here are the top questions experts recommend asking at the end of a job interview to leave a great final impression on hiring managers and establish yourself as a top candidate. “Is There Any Reason Why You Wouldn’t Hire Me?” Kelsey Meyer, senior vice president of Digital Talent Agents in Columbia, Mo., says, “A recent candidate asked, ‘If you were to not offer the job to me, what would be the reason?’ This was extremely straightforward and a little blunt, but it allowed me to communicate any hesitations I had about the candidate before he left the interview, and he could address them right there.” Michael B.

Upgraded Origami Published on October 3rd, 2011. Origami, that awesome paper folding technique we all know about or have seen, has been a popular art form within Japan for many centuries and popularized elsewhere during the mid 1900s (Wikipedia). It is said to help calm the soul, build patience, and really good practice for building things. As the premise is to build 3D forms that are sturdy, look great, and hide all unsightly connecting joints, it is no surprise then the next leap from origami is something like…paper sculpture.

His name is Jeff Nishinaka who was born and raised in Los Angeles.
