So you've been publicly shamed

Friday, 03 July, 2015

@TitleA great renaissance of public shaming is sweeping our land. Justice has been democratized. The silent majority are getting a voice. But what are we doing with our voice? We are mercilessly finding people's faults. We are defining the boundaries of normality by ruining the lives of those outside it. We are using shame as a form of social control.

Samsung's 'see-through' trucks aim to reduce risk of passing on highway

Friday, July 3, 2015

Navigating busy two-lane highways can mean drivers often can't see the road for the cars and take a risk that can prove fatal when they attempt to overtake large vehicles like transport trucks. The Korean technology giant Samsung wants to reduce that risk with the help of technology that allows drivers to virtually see "through" the vehicles ahead of them. Using monitors mounted on the back of a truck or other large vehicle and connected wirelessly to a camera in front, Samsung's Safety Truck technology shows drivers what's ahead of the 18-wheeled obstruction they're driving behind — day or night.

Culinary Resource – In season now, FiddleHeads

Friday, May 22, 2015

As increasing awareness of what we eat and where our food comes from becomes mainstream, we seek to grasp back that connection to our food sources. This connection had previously been evaporating in the wake of big brand grocery stores and, increasing lists of unpronounceable food additives showing up on food packaging. While many people may not be in a practical position to start a hobby farm to feed themselves. Foraging for food is accessible to anyone. >> Read More
