Olympus Tough TG-1 iHS Review & Rating The Olympus Tough TG-1 iHS ($399.99 direct) is not your typical rugged point-and-shoot camera. This pocket shooter looks more like a traditional camera—its lens is centered rather than perched in the corner—and has a fast f/2 aperture on the wide end. The 12-megapixel TG-1 iHS can go down as far as 40 feet underwater, fires full-resolution images at 5 frames per second, and offers GPS functionality. Put all of these features together and you have an ideal outdoor model that ousts the Nikon Coolpix AW100 ($379.95, 4 stars) as our Editors' Choice for rugged cameras.

What is mercury poisoning? Actor Jeremy Piven, best known as loudmouth talent agent Ari Gold on HBO's Entourage, has made an early exit from the Broadway play Speed the Plow, blaming a mercury-rich sushi diet and possibly use of herbal medicine. His doctor says tests revealed Piven has mercury levels five to six times higher than normal, and has ordered a fish-free diet and rest. “I talked to Jeremy on the phone, and he told me that he discovered that he had a very high level of mercury,” playwright David Mamet told Variety. “So my understanding is that he is leaving show business to pursue a career as a thermometer.” Piven's doctor, Carlon Colker, told the showbiz publication that “insensitive comments like that are not only unkind and unfair, they reflect a profound lack of understanding of a problem that can actually kill.”

Day to Night – A photographer captures the day and night on the same picture We already talked about the Day to Night project of American photographer Stephen Wilkes, who likes to capture the day and night on the same image, creating the poetic encounter between two environments that intersect and overlap. After his first series, When the Day meets the Night in a single photograph, I propose you a selection of the latest pictures from this beautiful project, which leads us from Paris to London through San Francisco, Tapei or New York. The photographs of Stephen Wilkes will be exhibited at the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery in New York from November 5, 2015 to January 9, 2016.

3D Printed Cell Technique Allows Material To Mimic Human-Like Tissue By: Tanya Lewis, LiveScience Staff Writer Published: 04/04/2013 02:11 PM EDT on LiveScience A team of chemists has found a way to print 3D material that resembles living tissue. The scientists developed a 3D printer that squeezes out tiny water droplets into a drop of oil, creating miniature spheres with a lipid bilayer that mimics the membranes of living cells. They deposited these droplets in layers to create a material that can bend like muscle or communicate like neurons, as reported today (April 4) in the journal Science.

Raw organic honey is one of my all-time favorite health foods… and it tastes great! It’s loaded with nutritious vitamins and minerals. And according to health experts, some of the benefits include anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, so honey is often used as a natural antiseptic in traditional medicines. Especially the rare Manuka honey (we recommend this). Our lives are better with music — Rethink Music Classes are back in session here at Berklee, and Rethink Music is celebrating our seventh year of work on the future of music.

11 vital things I wish someone had told me in my twenties As the years go by, we all think about the mistakes we’ve made, and often wish so much that we could have done certain things differently. How many foolish things did we do in our youth? We here at Bright Side would like to share an interesting article with you. Among the many fascinating thoughts he has shared on his Medium profile, author and successful businessman Nic Harry recently posed an important question that might help all of us achieve some personal growth: what advice would I give to myself in my twenties if I could go back in time? We think the advice he offers, however, might prove useful to everyone regardless of their age.
