20 Furniture Marvels For The Futuristic Home
Design will keep changing to suit the most current of trends, tastes and functionality needs of today’s buyers. The same can be evidently seen in mobile phones, PC keyboards, gaming consoles and even in mugs.

Customer Assistant - Part Time - Rogerstone Return to Search Results Job Introduction Tesco: Rogerstone Contract Type: Permanent British drugs survey 2014: drug use is rising in the UK – but we're not addicted Usage More than 15 million Britons, nearly one in three of the adult population, have taken illegal drugs and the proportion of the nation who have ever taken drugs is increasing over time; when the Observer last conducted research into national drug usage and attitudes in 2008, 27% of the population had taken illegal drugs. That figure has now increased to 31%. Last time round we noted that, while men were more likely than women to take drugs, the gender gap appeared to be closing, based on a comparison between 2008 and 2002 data. That process is now complete, with both sexes equally likely to have taken drugs.

Plugged-In Over Preppy: Teenagers Favor Tech Over Clothes Photo For some teenagers, wearing last season’s jeans will always be unthinkable. But a growing number consider texting on a dated smartphone even worse. For teenage apparel retailers, that screen-obsessed teenager poses a big threat in the still-important back-to-school sales season. Immersive Cocoon // Step Into The Future Directed & 3D CG by Oliver Zeller, Video Courtesy of I-Cocoon The world of interfaces continues to evolve and surprise us. We still think of it as something we can hold, fold and place in our bag to carry anywhere. What if you can be part of an intuitive and holistic experience where your interface is not reduced to a mouse-click or a two dimensional tablet screen.

Healing trip: how psychedelic drugs could help treat depression Next year, if all goes to plan, a dozen patients with clinical depression will be invited to a UK laboratory and given psilocybin – the psychedelic ingredient found in magic mushrooms. Over the next four or five hours, many of these volunteers will experience dream-like euphoria as colours, smells and sounds become more intense, perception of time distorts and their sense of self dissolves. Some may feel a surge of electricity through their bodies, sudden clarity of thought or hilarity.

Phones need 'bed mode' to protect sleep Image copyright Thinkstock Smartphones, tablets and e-readers should have an automatic "bedtime mode" that stops them disrupting people's sleep, says a leading doctor. Prof Paul Gringras argued the setting should filter out the blue light that delays the body clock and keeps people awake later into the evening. The doctor, from Evelina Children's Hospital in London, said every new model was "bluer and brighter". He said manufacturers needed to show more "responsibility". As it gets darker in the evening, the body starts to produce the sleep hormone melatonin - which helps people nod off.

Smart glass 2 Microsoft has posted an awesome new concept video with some ubercool new interfaces that could be here in five to ten years, estimates Kurt DelBene, President, Microsoft Office Division. That sounds a bit conservative. “All of the ideas in the video are based on real technology,” he said. “Some of the capabilities, such as speech recognition, real time collaboration, and data visualization, already exist today.

I felt the same way, until I found out the European Voluntary Service. I’ve just graduated with a degree in French and Russian, and I’m currently doing a year-long voluntary project in Samara, Russia, working for an international youth exchange charity called Lastochki. Other volunteers I know here are working in kindergartens, hospitals and with disabled people.
