How To Get An Internship in Publishing: 5 Tips - Publishing Trendsetter Having an internship, whether pre- or post-graduation, is the true “Step 0” in a publishing career.

Follow Livia's advice so that you don't feel this way 1. Figure out how to live in or near New York City Tree Shaped Wind Turbines to be Installed in Paris A French company called New Wind is installing tree-shaped wind turbines at the Place de la Concorde in Paris, France. The company’s founder, Jérôme Michaud-Larivière came up with the idea while in a Paris square, when he “saw the leaves tremble when there was not a breath of air.” He hopes the trees can be used to exploit small air currents flowing along buildings and streets, and could eventually be installed in people’s yards and urban centres. He is the first to admit the efficiency of the trees is low compared to more consistent currents higher up, but believes the £23,500 trees are more viable and less intrusive than ‘monstrous’ conventional wind turbines. The 26 foot high trees, which use tiny blades inside the ‘leaves’, could potentially be profitable after a year of wind speeds averaging 7.8 mph. They can generate electricity in wind speeds as low as 4.5 mph.

'GoSleep’ Sleeping Pods And Other Micro-Hotels For Weary Travelers The next time you transfer through Abu Dhabi International Airport, don’t be surprised to find a bizarre collection of futuristic “sleeping pods” lined up like eggs in a crate. Ten of the $12.25-per-hour pods now reside in Terminal 3, along with 10 more in the Al Dhabi Lounge at Terminal 1. Inside each capsule, travelers with a penchant for napping right in the middle of the terminal can find a fully enclosed chair that converts into a private flat bed, along with sliding shades that seal out airport noise, light and crowds. Three-dozen more “GoSleep” pods will be installed across the airport later this year, and all will be outfitted with Internet access; storage space for luggage and valuables; and a power source for laptops, mobile phones and other electronic devices. Abu Dhabi Airports Company, or ADAC, called the Finnish-designed sleeping pods an exclusive “world first.” The UAE hub isn't the only airport introducing novel ways to serve travelers burdened by layovers.

Secrets to Making a Wedding Cake A wedding cake is essentially just a really big layer cake, and making one from scratch can be fun as long as you plan ahead, are organized, and have all the right equipment on hand. Keep in mind that this cake, if decorated differently, would be great for any big celebration, such as a birthday, anniversary, or anytime party. Before tying on your apron, it’s good to know what you’re in for, so here’s the rundown. The cake comprises three cake tiers: a 12-inch bottom tier, a 9-inch middle tier, and a 6-inch top tier. Each tier is made of three layers of cake and two layers of filling (mix and match flavors, if you so please). After baking, assembling, and frosting each tier separately, the tiers are stacked on top of each other; evenly spaced wooden dowels placed within each tier ensures overall structural integrity and helps prevent the cake from collapsing upon itself.
