The Infamous Jacques Torres Chocolate Chip Cookies Now, I have a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I swear by. I love it, I think it is incredible, and I haven’t changed my mind about that. However, as much as it pains me to say it, these chocolate chip cookies by Jacques Torres are absolutely, without a doubt, the best chocolate chip cookies that I have ever made or tasted in my entire life. I guess that’s why they call him Mr. Chocolate! Either way, I made these and everyone that tried them went nuts. Edit: For more Jacques Torres deliciousness, check out my Jacques Torres Chocolate Mudslide Cookies! Your ingredients. Whisk together the cake flour, bread flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Beat together the butter and sugars, until light and fluffy, at least 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla. Add in the flour mixture, very gradually, until just moistened. Fold in your chocolate. Milk is, in fact, an essential component to enjoying these amazing cookies. Author: The Crepes of Wrath Prep time:

20 Most Amazing Microscope Shots These microscope pictures are taken from the book ‘ Microcosmos’, created by Brandon Brill . This book includes many scanning electron microscope (SEM) images of insects, human body parts and household items. These are the most amazing images of what is too small to see with the naked eye. 01 – A wood or heathland Ant, Formica fusca, holding a microchip 02 – The surface of an Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory silicon microchip 03 – Eyelash hairs growing from the surface of human skin 04 – The surface of a strawberry 05 – Bacteria on the surface of a human tongue 06 – Human sperm (spermatozoa), the male sex cells 07 – The nylon hooks and loops of velcro 08 – Household dust which includes long hairs such as cat fur, twisted synthetic and woolen fibers, serrated insect scales, a pollen grain, plant and insect remains 09 -The weave of a nylon stocking 10 – The end of the tongue (proboscis) of a hummingbird hawkmoth 11 – The head of a mosquito 12 – A human head louse clinging to a hair

Nanotube Power Technology Breakthrough at MIT May 12, 2010 12:00 PM Engineers at MIT have devised what they call a new way of producing electricity. By coating a microscopic carbon nanotube with a layer of fuel and igniting one end with a spark or laser, they're able to send a wave of heat shooting through the nanotube's interior. How It Works: 1. 2. 3. Possible Uses For Nanotube Power: Environmental Sensors Nanotubes could power environmental sensors that, scattered like dust in the air, closely monitor wide areas. Space Instruments The devices store power indefinitely, so they could be ideal for sensors in craft on deep space missions. Communication Devices A special coating could produce an alternating current that can transmit radio signals and cellphone calls. Mercedes Benz: Left Brain/Right Brain | Digital Ads I saw these great Ads recently—which are absolutely amazing I reckon. These digital works were designed for Mercedes Benz cars, and are based upon the left/right brain functions: ★★★★★ Like this type of article? Yes, the fourth Ad is a little different, but I still love it. Images © Copyright / Credits for the design works: Project: Left Brain Right Brain – Einstein.

Researchers at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering have created a device that mimics a living, breathing human lung on a microchip. The device, about the size of a rubber eraser, acts much like a lung in a human body and is made using human lung and blood vessel cells. Because the lung device is translucent, it provides a window into the inner-workings of the human lung without having to invade a living body. It has the potential to be a valuable tool for testing the effects of environmental toxins, absorption of aerosolized therapeutics and the safety and efficacy of new drugs.

A Father Who Creatively Captures His Kids (20 photos) If there was a prize that could be given out to the most creative father, I'd hope that it was awarded to Jason Lee. A wedding photographer by day, he's used to capturing some of the most important moments in a couple's lives. As a longtime fan of Jason's photos on Flickr however, I think the real magic happens when he turns the camera onto his daughters. Sure, his children are adorably cute in their own right, but that's not what makes his photos so interesting. It's when he puts his own spin on their everyday moments that we not only get to experience our own childhood again, we're able to see a father's pride shine through. I was able to get in touch with Jason to ask him a few questions. Q: How did you get into photography? Q: How do you come up with such creative photos of your daughters? Q: How has being on Flickr helped you with your business? Q: Any inspirational stories you'd like to share? Q: Do you have any advice for aspiring photographers? Q: Any quotes you live by?

Someone Left The Cake Out In The Rain Visiting 10 of the Most Interesting Abandoned Places on Earth Travelers looking for a getaway from the normal getaway should skip the sandy beaches to walk amid silent relics in Namibia, Chernobyl or an abandoned California gold mining town. These empty places may look like Scooby Doo set pieces, but they hold important clues to bigger mysteries about both the past and the future; the creep of urban decay and the necessity of memorializing tragedy. Sometimes history lives alone. We bring you 10 modern ghost cities where you can choose your own adventure, exploring what once was and what could have been. Hashima Island, Japan After spending a little less than a century as a bustling coal mining facility, Hashima Island became known as "Ghost Island" when demand for petroleum outstripped demand for coal in the 1960's and the 5,000 Mitsubishi-employed islanders began a mass exodus. Hashima Island was officially re-opened for tourists in April 2009. 1 of 10 Photos

Lesson Plan for Making a Speaker Laboratory ©1995 The Regents of the University of California by Regan Lum Introduction: A speaker is a device that converts an electronic signal into sound. figure 1 Purpose: In this laboratory, you will explore how a speaker works. Materials: 1 permanent magnet 2 feet of wire 1 pencil tape or glue 1 Styrofoam or paper cup 1 signal source (tape player) 1 plug with alligator clips for tape player Procedure: Assemble material as shown in figure 1. Leaving about 10 centimeters on the end, wrap the wire around a pencil to make a wire coil and tape or glue it to the bottom of the cup.
