    Image Credit: Claudia Augello, Johnny Sanchez, Scott Yamamura / Seattle Children’s HospitalAs if walking out of Costco with your giant tub of mayo wasn't weird (yet practical) enough, now you might find yourself walking out of Costco with a bear that almost 100 inches tall. I know this is weird, but like, how can you even be mad? Those bears are going to make whoever gets them very happy (as long as they don't live in a studio apartment) and they are only $179.99.I do realize one hundred eighty dollars may sound steep for a stuffed bear, but would you think that if said bear…

This partial solar eclipse will be visible to almost everyone in the United States and Canada.  On the left is an animation showing the view from above the Earth, looking down on the U.S. during the eclipse. The curved line sweeping around clockwise is the terminator, the day/night line. The big gray distorted circle is the physical shadow of the Moon. You can see that over time it moves roughly eastward and southward, the combination of its motion and the Earth’s spin. If you…

    Lori Dorn

    Nudibranchs of Papua New Guinea is a beautiful short film by underwater photographer Dustin Adamson taken during a recent trip to Papua New Guinea. The film focuses on the gorgeous form, color and slow movement of the eponymous nudibranch, a soft-bodied mollusk that comes in varying sizes, colors and shapes. Nudibranchs are generally small, a bit like a traditional slug. But these slugs are much more interesting that the ones we find in the garden. The different shapes, colors, and sizes make each species of nudibranchs unique. Hopefully with this video that is up close and personal with the…

The app stems from an xkcd comic about the often confusing difference between a simple computer task (determining whether a photo was shot in a National Park) and an extremely challenging task (determining whether a photo contains a bird). After seeing the comic, Flickr engineers built the Park or Bird? app using existing technology. National Park photos can indeed be identified easily through a…

    We recently sponsored the slightly-awkwardly-named-but-totally-worthwhile Type-A Parent Conference in Atlanta, and so naturally the topic of email came up (surprise!), especially in relation to testing email forms with different email accounts. It can be a real pain to create yet another email address for your site, and so we all have only a few addresses to go around. Right? Wrong! If you have a gmail account – and who doesn’t? – you effectively have an infinite number of email addresses. And I was surprised how few of the experienced bloggers and content marketers I met…

    If you or your subscribers have been frustrated trying to get to a FeedBlitz feed (or click through to a link in a FeedBlitz feed) in the last 24 hours or so, the reason is because some third party DNS servers have been returning the wrong results for feeds.feedblitz.com. The net effect is that although FeedBlitz is up and your feeds are being served, some subscribers are being sent to the wrong servers, and getting errors as a result.

    Not having Flash development experience in-house, we were puzzled recently when we received a support request from a Flash guy wondering why a file we’d never heard of (crossdomain.xml) was giving a 404 file not found error when he requested it. Because it wasn’t there, obviously. Thankfully, the developer in question was kind enough to throw us a link about why that file was needed for Flash, and a few minutes later we had everything we needed to know. Thanks, Chad! So if you’re a Flash developer, crossdomain.xml is now available on our servers to permit you to use…
  • New: RSS Image Enclosures Now Visible

    Phil Hollows
    13 Aug 2014 | 6:58 am
    A funny (peculiar, not haha) thing about major media site RSS feeds is that not only are the feeds often little more than a plain text (and so kinda boring) sentence, but also that their RSS feeds tend to include thumbnail images as enclosures. Enclosures are the part of a feed typically used for podcast media files, and the problem with stashing an image as an enclosure is that most people won’t see it, since the picture isn’t part of the main content. As a result, the feed and downstream feed usage (e.g. email subscriptions) are much less engaging for us carbon based life…

Scientists are reporting that a wall of water up to nine meters (30 feet) high surged onto Hawaiian shores about 500 years ago. A 9.0-magnitude earthquake off the coast of the Aleutian Islands triggered the mighty wave, which left behind up to nine shipping containers worth of ocean sediment in a sinkhole on the island of…

Specifically, over the past few weeks, nativist groups such as the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) and the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) as well as some lawmakers started criticizing the U.S. government for not adopting tough travel restrictions. While the solutions proposed are indeed simplistic and not adequately justified, the motivation behind them is clearly opportunistic. Specifically, these groups…

    Massachusetts residents can now make a modest living out of their own bodily functions – by donating a sample of their poo. An independent non-profit stool bank called OpenBiome is willing to offer volunteers $40 per deposit, and what’s more, it’s all for a good cause. The stool samples will be used for fecal transplants, to fight the deadly superbug C. difficile, which affects more than 500,000 and kills 14,000 Americans per year. If you’re wondering about fecal transplants, you can read all about the life-saving procedure in this feature we did a couple of years ago. At the…

    A special project in the town of Essen, Germany, is designed to engage alcoholics and drug addicts in cleaning up the city’s streets, giving them a chance to pick themselves up and rejoin society. The project is called ‘Pick-Up’, and it pays the participants with a small hourly wage, along with free beer! Although the beer is meant to be an incentive, the amount given away is small, so it won’t really cause a lot of damage. “The beer is distributed on the individual needs of the participants,” read a fact sheet from the organisation that manages the project. “Not everyone…

    Is the Chupacabra real? The video below explains the possible species connections the Chupacabra could have. For example, is it a rat/kangaroo mix? Or what? Is the Chupacabra a new species all together? Is it a cross between two species?Many of the sightings that are hyped in the media are always proven false. That doesn't mean the Chupacabra isn't real. Nature can do weird things, and the idea of strange mutations isn't a crazy one. Until caught, the Chupacabra will remain reclusive, and mythological. The truth is out there.

    When the waters of the Mississippi River broke in April 2011, it created one of the largest and the most damaging floods in the U.S. in the past century. Flooding was caused by two major storm systems that deposited record levels of rainfall on the Mississippi River watershed. When that additional water combined with the springtime snowmelt, the river and many of its tributaries began to swell and spill over. Certain areas were inundated with 20-30 feet of water forcing evacuation of tens of thousands of homes in areas along the Mississippi and the Yazoo River. But many decided to stay put…

Coal fires rage below the surface and noxious gases spew from fissures in and around houses.
