Right: Andrea Phillips , co-organizer of the biennial's ten-month public program, “Public Alchemy.” (All photos: Kaelen Wilson-Goldie) WHEN THE ISTANBUL FOUNDATION FOR CULTURE AND ARTS (IKSV) struck a sponsorship deal with Koç Holding to support five editions of the Istanbul Biennial over ten years, from 2006 through 2016, one can reasonably assume that everyone involved wanted something fairly solid—financial stability, reputational fortification—from the arrangement. So what can we expect in 2013? There are still four months to go before the official opening, but Erdemci has titled her show ( Mom, Am I Barbarian?

5 Home Depot Hacks Converting cassette tapes to digital formats | Technology | Is there a cheap device to copy cassette tapes direct to PC? Paul Niemiec You don't need one. Using the traditional method, all you need is a cassette player, a cable to connect it to your PC's sound card, and Audacity software, which you can download free for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. You can find instructions on the Lifehacker blog. If you are using a hi-fi cassette deck, the connecting cable will probably have two phono plugs at one end and a 1/8 inch mini-jack at the other (often called a Y cable). The Lifehacker instructions suggest digitising the sound using the LAME MP3 encoder. The process is basically the same if you buy a specialised recorder such as ION Audio's Tape2PC deck, except it connects to the PC via a USB port. An even simpler and cheaper approach is not to use a PC at all. In this case, all you need is an MP3 player that has a direct encoding (line-in) feature, plus a stereo line-in cable (sometimes called a Direct Encoding Cable) costing about a fiver or less.

Shea Butter Lotions, Products - Moisturize Dry Skin Shea butter has been around forever — and for good reason. This serious hydrator has been used for centuries to moisturize skin (and hair, too). It's essentially a triglyceride (a fatty acid) that’s crushed out of the nut of the African shea tree, then heated up in large vats, so that the softening oils make their way to the top. Unlike other butters, shea butter quickly emulsifies when it hits the skin and is subtly warmed up from an elevated body temperature — that's why it effortlessly seeps into the skin, and doesn’t rest on the surface. Not only is it a superstar skin softener, it also helps heal and calm skin, thanks to essential nutrients such as omega-6 fatty acids and linoleic acid. What's more, it acts as an emollient and has anti-inflammatory properties (perfect for sensitive skin prone to irritation). Begin Slideshow

Recycled Cardboard Shelf To make the brackets start by cutting 1.5” (40mm) wide strips. For maximum strength cut the stips so that the corrugations run along the length of the piece like the grain in a piece of wood. Glue (school glue) them together in an L shape. Be sure to alternate where the joints are so that no two joints are directly on top of each other. Make these L shapes the same thickness as a pencil. Trim a pencil and cut a notch into the bracket about a third of the brackets width. I know its a bit of a cheat using pencils as struts but i didn't have enough cardboard to make them.

15 Beautiful Free Online Magazines I have always loved magazines, from the glossy pages of my first subscriptions as a toddler, to the refined pages of a Kinfolk magazine.

Silk-Dyed Eggs {aka TIE-Dyed!} I posted this tutorial a few years ago and it has become somewhat of a tradition to bring it back every year! One of our family Easter traditions is dying eggs with pieces of silk. I saw a cute lady show Martha how to do it a few years ago and I ran upstairs right then to steal a tie! It’s way cooler than those cups of neon liquid that end up all over your clothes, your furniture and your hands plus it gives you an excuse to rid a man’s closet of ugly ties. Here’s the run-down: You need 100% silk for this to work. I try to find an assortment of colors and patterns. Usually it will tell you if it’s 100% silk right on the main label of the tie, but a lot of them don’t, and if that’s the case, check that little tiny end, it’s usually hiding there. The first step is to deconstruct the tie. Next you cut a piece large enough to cover an egg. Now, notice how I tied the eggs in the above photo- with the tie on the top of the long side of the egg. I wish eggs came like this at the grocery store.
