No rain for decades: Stand by for the ‘megadroughts’, scientists warn - Climate Change - Environment Experts warn the droughts could be even more severe than the prolonged water shortage currently afflicting California, where residents have resorted to stealing from fire hydrants amid mass crop failures and regular wildfires. Megadroughts – which are generally defined as lasting 35 years or more – will become considerably more frequent as global warming increases temperatures and reduces rainfall in regions already susceptible, warns Cornell University’s Dr Toby Ault, the author of the new report. Megadroughts are also likely to be hotter and last longer than in the past, he claimed. His peer-reviewed research – to be published in the American Meterological Society’s Journal of Climate – is the first to scientifically establish that climate change exacerbates the threat.

Breather: A Living Room for Nomads Everywhere we go, we are surrounded by countless, unused rooms–furnished, climate controlled, wifi enabled rooms. If you’ve ever wandered around a city–or any place away from home–you’ve probably wanted to duck into one of these rooms to work, take a quick nap or simply have some quiet time alone. A new service called Breather is about to enable just that, providing on-demand offices, nap spaces, meditation spots or whatever type of space you might need. Breather works by using excess capacity real estate (mostly unused office spaces to begin). With Breather’s smartphone app, users will be able to locate these spaces and reserve on the spot.

10 Awesome Infographics for Graphic Designers As a graphic designer, you’ve probably designed at least a few infographics for your clients – or even for fun. You can create (and sell) infographics for any topic or industry, which means infographics can be a lucrative source of income. Some designers make a full-time living designing infographics alone. The Complete Guide to Not Giving a Fuck Ok, I have a confession to make. I have spent almost my whole life– 31 years– caring far too much about offending people, worrying if I’m cool enough for them, or asking myself if they are judging me. I can’t take it anymore. It’s stupid, and it’s not good for my well being.

The Aletheon: The Truth Book of Avatar Adi Da [After the Ruchira Dham Event of April 12, 2000,] My Divine Avataric Self-Revelation-Word Became a completely different kind of Utterance.Most essentially, My Divine Avataric Self-Revelation-Word has Become The Aletheon.— Avatar Adi Da Samraj The Aletheon During the final two years of a Lifetime that had been utterly devoted to the Communication of Truth, Avatar Adi Da created His supreme Scripture — a book of oceanic depth and magnitude.

Jetpack Will Help Runners Hit 4-Minute Miles There are times when seconds count, and the ability to move quickly could mean the difference between life and death. In combat, soldiers can carry upwards of 90 pounds in their rucksacks and on their bodies, which significantly reduces how fast they can move on foot. Jason Kerestes, a student at Arizona State University, has developed the 4 Minute Mile: a jetpack that helps soldiers move faster, without requiring them to physically exert more.

Popcorn Time We started Popcorn Time as a challenge to ourselves. That’s our motto. That’s what we stand for. We are enormously proud of this project. Amazing Places To Experience Around The Globe (Part 2) Tian Tan Buddha on Lantau Island, Hong Kong Fernando De Noronha - Brazil Spirit Island, Magligne Lake, Alberta, Canada How to Build Self-Discipline Discipline is freedom. You may disagree with this statement, and if you do you are certainly not alone. For many people discipline is a dirty word that is equated with the absence of freedom. In fact the opposite is true. The Vedic Circle of 9 and 0 The symbol of 'the consciousness that will be this Consciousnesses of the point and the whole at the same time' is the Sun Symbol (as seen above): a point which gives birth to 'the whole'. The mystery of what the 9 has to do with becoming simultaneously conscious of the point (or Absolute) and the whole (Manifest Reality) is lessened when one acknowledges the circular structure of not only time, but also of the 9-0 Vedic number system which is still used to measure time and everything that exists in space. A linear view of time and number fails to represent both the circular structure of time and space and to reveal the relationships, harmonies, geometries and symmetries between parts of the whole. For instance, when looking at the number or time line of 0 to 9 and beyond, one does not SEE the relationship between the 0 and the 9, nor the central triangle or trinity formed by the 0/9, 3 and 6. Each number in this circular view has its place within the whole.

50 Things About Millennials That Make Corporate America Sh*t Its Pants In 2013, Joel Stein deemed Millennials the “ME Generation.” The TIME contributor called Generation-Y selfish, egotistical and lazy. He also noted, however, that we may just be the generation that will save us all. Per usual, no one knows what to make of us. Our parents scorn us, then praise us. They lament over our technological dependency, then ask us to set up their iPads.
