    The idea of coming full circle and returning whence we came from is one that appeals to many of us, regardless of our faith (or lack thereof), and this is an idea captured perfectly by this beautiful new burial method developed in Italy. The Capsula Mundi project by designers Anna Citelli and Raoul Bretzel has developed an organic, biodegradable burial capsule that will turn the deceased’s body into nutrients for a tree that will grow out of their remains. After being encapsulated in the fetal position, the deceased is buried and either a tree or tree seed is planted above their…

    26 Feb 2015 | 1:41 am
    Cerro Sarisarinama is a table-topped mountain called a tepui, in Jaua-Sarisariñama National Park at the far south-west of Bolívar State, in Venezuela, near the border with Brazil. The name of the mountain originates from a legend of the indigenous Ye'kuana Indians that speaks of an evil spirit living in caves up in the mountain. Sometimes the evil spirit is heard devouring human flesh and then a terrible sound "Sari... sari..." is heard. The tepui is located in one of the most remote areas in the country, with the closest road being hundreds of miles away. Unlike other tepuis,…

  • What Color is This Dress?

    26 Feb 2015 | 8:00 pm
    There’s been quite a debate among Tumblr users about the colors of this dress. The picture was posted by Swiked, and then passed around, igniting arguments wherever it showed up. I looked at it and said, “That’s white with gold lace.” Then I read three posts at Buzzfeed about the controversy surrounding the colors, with plenty of pictures of the dress with various color corrections and even a catalog entry, and they determined that the dress is actually blue with black lace.But what really floored me was when I returned to the original picture and saw it as blue and…

To illustrate this, Hopes&Fears recruited a young ASL speaker, 12-year-old Brooklyn resident Tully Stelzer, and an adult speaker, ASL artist Douglas Ridloff, to demonstrate various slang terms on camera.

The city has released images of signs urging people to use their “eyes, brakes, brain,” clarifying that the 35 MPH speed limit is “a speed limit, not a suggestion,” and encouraging pedestrians to “cross the street, then update Facebook.” It’s unclear if the signs have reduced speeding, but they have been a hit online and in the media.

Your content is already great, and now people have invited you to send it to them whenever you write. That’s what they want; so go ahead. Give it to them. Here’s how you get started: Choose a reputable, supported email service (because nobody wants to end up being labeled spammer, right? Right). Behave well, always (ALWAYS) use dual opt-in,…

    Why Email When you think about building your site for the first time, you’re probably also thinking about your Facebook presence. After all, that’s where the people are, right? OK, that makes sense at a superficial level. But there are two problems with emphasizing platforms like Facebook instead of your own site and your own list: Facebook owns Facebook. Building your online presence on someone else’s digital turf which they adjust to please themselves (and not you) is risky. Facebook stinks for engagement. “Stinks” – a bit strong, you say?

Then, out of nowhere, New England got “lucky” twice: Firstly, when Seattle tried an unnecessarily high risk play just to waste time, and secondly when the rookie intercepted the ball, effectively securing victory for New England.

    26 Feb 2015 | 11:45 am
    The Sahara Desert and the Amazon rainforest seem to inhabit separate worlds. The former is a vast expanse of sand and scrub stretching across the northern third of Africa, while the latter is a dense green mass of humid jungle covering northeast South America. And yet, they are connected: every year, millions of tons of nutrient-rich Saharan dust cross the Atlantic Ocean, bringing vital phosphorus and other fertilizers to depleted Amazon soils.

    This year, one Boston neighborhood tried to ban the time-honored practice of using space-savers to reserve a parking spot after shoveling it. But old habits die hard…and somewhat violently.

One night, she says, “As I was looking for open parking , I pulled into an unclaimed space, thinking, what luck! No chair in sight!” Too good to be true, it turns out. When she returned to her…

    In case you haven’t heard of it before, the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, also known as Pastafarianism (a cross between pasta and Rastafarian) is a movement that promotes a light-hearted view of religion, and is generally viewed by the media as a satirical take on organized religion. But 63-year-old German retiree Rüdiger Weida takes his Pastafarianism quite seriously – he established his own church chapter in the town of Templin, in September of last year, and is now trying his best to get it legally recognized by the state!

To teach children that everything has a cost in money or effort, I share cash-related stories from the newspaper with them.  Recent example: A sneaky jeweler who wanted to hide his sales from the taxman sold jewelry worth six million euros (HK$53 million) for cash.  The buyers took the jewelry and left him with…

    You might think that cranking up the thermostat is the simplest way to heat your home, but there are plenty of other ways to ensure your living space stays toasty – and they can also save you money. 1. Don’t hang clothes over radiators. It might make them dry quicker but it makes the radiator work harder and so use more energy. 2. Turn the thermostat down by one degree.

    Cerro Sarisarinama is a table-topped mountain called a tepui, in Jaua-Sarisariñama National Park at the far south-west of Bolívar State, in Venezuela, near the border with Brazil. The name of the mountain originates from a legend of the indigenous Ye'kuana Indians that speaks of an evil spirit living in caves up in the mountain. Sometimes the evil spirit is heard devouring human flesh and then a terrible sound "Sari... sari..." is heard. The tepui is located in one of the most remote areas in the country, with the closest road being hundreds of miles away. Unlike other tepuis,…

    Port Royal was a city situated on the end of an 18-mile long sand spit known as the Palisadoes, at the mouth of the Kingston Harbour, in south-eastern Jamaica. Founded in 1518, it rapidly grew to become the most important trading post in the Caribbean Sea due to its strategic position on the trading routes between the New World and Spain. When England officially appointed privateers to raid enemy ships in the Caribbean, as a part of its defence strategy, pirates from around the world congregated at Port Royal to legitimize their trade.
