11 Of The Oldest Living Things In The World

For nearly a decade, photographer Rachel Sussman has been traveling the globe in search of the world's oldest living things. From the Mojave Desert to the Australian Outback to Greenland's icy expanses, she captures portraits of life forms so relentless they've managed to survive eons of planetary change. An 80,000-year-old colony of aspen trees in Utah and a 43,600-year-old self-propagating shrub in Tasmania rank amongst Sussman's unlikely subjects, just two of the many plants, fungi and invertebrates catalogued by her lens.

iPhone 6 Plus Camera Review: Iceland

AE/AF lock is really useful when shooting macro shots like this one but also for high-speed photography or any shot you are lining up and waiting for. For instance, if I'm on the sidelines at a bike race and want to get a shot of a biker whizzing by with perfect composition, I would AE/AF lock on that composition ahead of time and then wait for the rider to cruise through. This is quicker because the exposure and focus have already been chosen and your phone just needs to actuate the shutter.

Explore Black Holes and Destroy Planets in the Awesome New Interstellar Game | WIRED

Once your perfect universe is finished, you can pilot your own starship through space. It feels a bit like a NASA simulator turned into a game and—because it uses real science—requires that you travel the way an exploratory crew would have to. Navigating around black holes to avoid being drawn into the void? Yes. Avoiding crashing into various bodies? That too. Using gravity to slingshot around and save fuel? You got it. You’ve even got the option of traveling through wormholes. It’s like Galaga , but with Newtonian physics. There are no pew! pew! pew! noises, but we won’t judge you for making them at your desk.

The Top 25 Modern PC Games - IGN

For the longest time, the task of building a great Batman game had proved to be beyond the talents of most developers. Rocksteady emphatically put an end to that trend with the excellent Batman: Arkham Asylum, but it went one step further with Batman: Arkham City. (Which of these two games would make this list proved one of our most contentious decisions.) By opening up such a large expanse of Gotham to explore, we were at last able to be the Bat: swooping freely from the rooftops and gliding down alleys to terrify and takedown goons with finesse before zipping back up into the night. Yet it’s not merely the freedom of its open-world that makes Arkham City so great; it’s the gripping story, the wonderful cast of villains, the effortless free-flowing combat, and the countless and compelling side quests that all combine to make it the best superhero game ever made. As an added bonus, it looks particularly stunning on the PC. - Tristan Ogilvie

7 talks on the struggle of mental health

To all appearances, Eleanor Longden was just like every other student, heading to college full of promise and without a care in the world. That was until the voices in her head started talking. Initially innocuous, these internal narrators became increasingly antagonistic and dictatorial, turning her life into a living nightmare. Diagnosed with schizophrenia, hospitalized, drugged, Longden was discarded by a system that didn't know how to help her. Longden tells the moving tale of her years-long journey back to mental health, and makes the case that it was through learning to listen to her voices that she was able to survive.

We made weed butter with a 'magical' machine

Compared to the manual alternative, making Magical Butter in "the world's only botanical extractor" is a lot less messy and a whole hell of a lot less smelly. That is, until it's time to separate the botanicals from the butter. Once the infusion was done, the machine beeped a couple of times, beckoning us to what we'd all been waiting for. One of my colleagues slipped on the love glove (a neon green oven mitt) and popped the lid off the pitcher. What we saw was, well, disgusting. The substance wasn't the bright green concoction pictured in the promotional material; instead we ended up with what looked like a mass of runny baby poop. Did that stop us from digging in? Hell no. We strained out the murky bits, leaving behind a lump of something that brought the words "lung butter" to mind. The end result was a nearly clear, subtle-tasting butter. It smelled, looked and tasted better than any "botanical" butter I'd ever had, but as anyone who's eaten the stuff will tell you, it should not be eaten alone. So we whipped up some homemade brownie batter, poured it in a Pyrex pan, threw it in the preheated oven and set about plowing through a platter of artisanal cheeses and meats.

3 Things to Know Before Embarking on an International Job Assignment

For Huston, living and working abroad means being on a work permit, which can add an extra layer of stress. "We all have days when we fantasize about quitting our jobs," she says, explaining that the stakes for such decisions are much higher when you’re on an employer-sponsored work visa. "On a work permit, this can add anxiety. It also makes tax returns really complicated," she adds. "Ask your company to cover the cost of an accountant."

Blogging Nuns, Tweeting Monks, And The Catholic Church's Digital Revolution

Catholics are also thinking about how the youngest among them can learn to navigate the virtual world. On CatholicMom.com, a blog network founded by Lisa Hendey in 2000, mothers contemplate how to nurture their children to be responsible citizens of the digital world. “Early on we used to think that parents can control every bit of content that came into their child’s life, but we’re learning over time that’s not possible,” Hendey says. “We think about how to help children form a conscience, so that they can make positive, upright, and uplifting choices online.” In the United States, the Catholics and the Greek Orthodox have collaborated to provide an online resource called Faith and Safety that helps parents guide their children through the web. “Children need to learn how to interact online in a way that is kind and generous and true to the human spirit,” says Helen Osman.

Apple TV Is Now Armed And Ready To Be The Hub For The Smart Home

What does that mean? A million things, but lets give an example. You go on vacation, and your family visits your home. They ring your frontdoor, you answer videolink via your phone. They want to stay a few nights, so you give them your front door. As they walk in, your AC sense legit people and turns up the heat, a air monitoring device detects too much CO2 in the air, and sends a message to open the windows for a few minutes while also turning out the AC a bit more to adjust for the cold, they go to bed the blinds close, your sleep monitoring system sense that your mother isn´t getting deep sleep (REM) and changes some parameters automatically like closing more curtains and lowering more lights, adjusting AC a bit lower. This all happens automatically, because all devices communicate with each other. Apple does not do much half-assed, they focus on the end result, and built clever frameworks to enable developers to slowly find their own path to the end result. You bettcha Apple has been hard at work with HomeKit, Apple TV, and figuring out how to get bluetooth/wifi playing along on a device level requiring minimal power.

14 Impossibly Chic Cat Houses

Formation Association/Edgar Arceneaux "Feral Cat Shelter (Working Title), is a shelter for feral cats which doubles as a bench for two or more people. The shelter is formed of a continuous rib system which undulates to form sanctuary spaces and safe passage for cats. Possessing floating clavicle bones, or shoulder bones, cats are able to squeeze into any shape that is the same width as it's skull. The narrowing spaces of the Feral Cat Shelter allow the entry of cast, while fending off their possible predators. A series of organic spaces is formed by the incremental, radial transformation of the structural ribs, interconnected by various apertures through the cross-bracing. On the field, cat workers may use the Feral Cat Shelter for discussion and rest during their observation activities. The Feral Cat Shelter acts as a social node for both feral, or 'community', cats, and the people who have dedicated themselves to working with them. Though the two may never use the bench simultaneously, the uses of both parties are suggested in its form."

Terry Gilliam on His Epic New Dystopian Film The Zero Theorem | WIRED

Six years ago, when we first talked about doing this movie, the budget was $20 million, and we ended up making it for $8.5 million. There's probably $500,000 of savings in there in improved technologies—for example, Christoph and Mélanie Thierry recorded some new lines on their iPhones while he was in Berlin and she was in France, emailed them back to me, and they're in the film. We couldn't have done that a few years ago. But the rest is people working for scale, working their asses off, being very clever, and filming in Bucharest. And getting actor friends to come in and work—but I can't take advantage of all my friends next time.

The “Oculus Platform” Marketplace For Virtual Reality App Launches This Fall | TechCrunch

[ Update 4:35pm PST : After sitting down with Oculus co-founder and VP of Product Nate Mitchell, we've got new details on the future of the Oculus Platform. First, the goal is to eventually give VR developers a way to make money. Mitchell tells me the top question Oculus gets from VR app developers is when they'll be able to sell their experiences. He believes this will create "a cycle that improves the ecosystem. If they if they can be super successful (making money), they can reinvest in development, and that’s the best thing." Creating a great marketplace for developers is largely why Oculus hired Jason Holtman, who turned Valve's Steam online game store into a favorite in the gaming comunity, as its Head Of Platform.

Oculus Execs Believe Controllers Are The Missing Link In Virtual Reality | TechCrunch

During the Q&A I asked what the execs thought were the advantages and disadvantages of different input devices like dual-wielding nunchuks, motion tracking, and gloves, and which is each of their favorites. Luckey responded that a great device for guns is not the same as a great device for swords is not a great device for productivity apps. He said there will need to be a device that’s good for generally interacting with virtual worlds, though. With so many different use cases for VR and different corresponding input devices, it leads me to believe that Oculus will build a platform for connecting third-party input devices to its headsets. This would leave controller fragmentation to the developer community so Oculus can focus on generalizable problems and opportunities that exist across VR apps.

NASA Awards Boeing And SpaceX Contracts To Deliver Astronauts To The Space Station

NASA was very tricky here. It looks like they awarded the contract to both for valid reasons. But good luck getting that entire amount funded! Thus they kept the old boyz in the “space states” happy (cough, cough) by awarding Boeing the contract. But we all know SpaceX is way ahead of Boeing as far as development. The Dragon capsule is already flying cargo the the ISS. When there are funding cuts to NASA guess who is going to be out, the contractor who is behind and costs more, Boeing!

Amazon's $200 Kindle Voyage is the Rolls-Royce of e-readers

All of the new software features will be making their way to the refreshed Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite as well. The Paperwhite is getting only the mildest of upgrades -- going from 2GB to 4GB of storage. The truly budget $79 Kindle, on the other hand, is getting a relatively significant revamp. The new design, other than its bulky body, is almost indistinguishable from the Paperwhite. The navigation buttons are all gone and the interface has gone all-touch. You also get a much beefier processor and twice the storage as before. While you don't normally think about the processor in your e-reader, as Amazon keeps packing in features, you'll be thankful for the extra horsepower. Even with the new CPU, you'll probably notice a stutter or two as you poke around in X-Ray or start turning on features like WordWise.

R + L = J: 'Game of Thrones' fan theories to chew on - CNET

If there's one thing "Game of Thrones" is really good at, it's plot twists. As soon as you start to root for the characters, they wind up either dead or in some strategic alliance with the character or house you despise most. George R.R.

Why Bitcoin Is Poised To Win Big In Las Vegas

In Vegas, however, especially on the Strip, bitcoin has even more going for it. First of all, because so many people visit Sin City every year, the market attracts a high volume of people looking to spend money. The Viva Vegas souvenir shop, in which McAlary has placed his first ATM (he calls it the “Bitcoin Bodega"), sees more than 100,000 people a day in foot traffic. Las Vegas also draws an international clientele who want to access their money instantaneously, and to gamble without paying transfer fees to centralized banks.

15 Insanely Great Tricks to Master Apple's iOS 8 | WIRED

Apple’s new update irons out some of the iOS web browser’s most frustrating quirks. First is a new quick-search feature: Just type the name of a website and a search term, separated by a space. For example, typing “craigslist chainsaw” will prompt Safari to ask if you’d just like to search Craigslist.org for a chainsaw. In older versions of iOS, typing this into the address bar would prompt a Google search for those individual words, and then you’d have to tap on the Google result you wanted. So this new trick saves you a couple of taps. You have to enable this Quick Website Search feature in Safari’s settings, and it only works on sites that you’ve previously run searches on—Safari wants to be sure it’s only offering the option on sites you browse often. But it’s a boon for usability. Another new option in iOS 8′s Safari is the ability to request a full, desktop version of a site instead of the mobile version. This eliminates a common headache on the mobile web . To request the desktop site, just tap Safari’s address bar while browsing a mobile site, and you’ll see the desktop option appear.

The Lost Art of Candor in the Workplace

McKeown’s second piece of advice is to protect others from yourself.Candor does not mean disregarding other people’s feelings.

Confrontations should be reserved for the worst of behavior, not when letting someone know that more polish is needed.

THE MOBILE AND ONLINE BANKING REPORT: Mobile Is Pulling Customers Away From Branches And Online Banking

Worldwide, mobile banking is now more popular with bank customers than visiting brick-and-mortar branches.  Fifty-seven percent of customers do their banking online on a weekly basis, while nearly one-fourth use mobile banking weekly (up 9 percentage points from 2013). Only 14% visit a bank branch every week. Mobile is completely changing the customer-bank relationship. (See chart, above.)

Instagram has a drug problem

If you’re curious, just do a hashtag search — try “#xanax,” for example. You’ll be greeted by a list of hashtags spanning more than 100,000 images just for this particular substance. Many of these images are “legitimate” inasmuch as they just portray drug use. But mixed within are posts with product for sale. With an untraceable money transfer or Bitcoin transaction, you can have a shipment on your doorstep in days, via the U.S. Post Office or other delivery service. Some users even claim to deliver overnight.

AI For Everyone: Startups Democratize Deep Learning So Google And Facebook Don't Own It All

But this event, focused mostly on startups, including several that demonstrated their products before the panel, also revealed there’s still a lot of entrepreneurial activity. In particular, several companies aim to democratize deep learning by offering it as a service or coming up with cheaper hardware to make it more accessible to businesses.

How 3D Printing Will Impact Your Future

Meanwhile, we will see better and more diverse materials coming to market as well as better printers with increased printing speed at reduced cost. 3D printing will make its way to many more classrooms in education as it’s the ultimate maker tool to create objects and prototypes. And we will probably see Apple, Google or Amazon coming up with an own 3D-printers as soon as the consumer market is ready to explode.

Emergency Room Communication Sucks. Could This Twitter-Like Tech Save Lives?

Last year, Law decided to tackle this problem head on. At the Disrupting Medicine Hackathon sponsored by Brigham and Women’s hospital, Law met Yi Ding Yu , a doctor who had similar frustrations with emergency communication, and John Rodley, a developer eager to use technology to solve medical problems. The outcome: Twiage , a platform that allows first responders to send tweet-like messages and pictures from their smartphones straight to the emergency room. “Users live-update Twitter with a news event using videos, pictures, and words,” says Yu. “Why can’t that same story be told for patient care by physicians and first responders?” (While Twiage is inspired by Twitter, it is not affiliated with Twitter in any way.)

43 Characters - Super Smash Bros. for Wii U / 3DS Wiki Guide - IGN

On October 31st, it was revealed that certain characters will be available through alternate costumes. The first of which to be revealed is the Male Wii Fit Trainer. This was further expanded when it was revealed that Olimar and Alph would be alternate costumes, and not different characters. Despite this, Alph gets his own shout from the announcer both by picking the character and winning the game. Another notable alternate costume case is Bowser Jr., who was revealed to have all seven of the Koopalings as his alternate costumes. Despite this, several characters like Dr. Mario and Dark Pit are still "clone" characters that have their own character spot on the roster.

What exactly does this smart home startup do that’s getting so much money and talent? Well, Leeo isn’t ready to talk about specific products it’s coming out with yet, but the company’s explanation of how it’s approaching the industry is a bit different than other smart home companies. From the very beginning, Leeo is focusing on working with hulking incumbents like telecommunication companies and utilities to help roll out services onto the company’s smart home product line. That will make Leeo a bit of a mix between an enterprise and consumer product company.

Sheila Kennedy , principal architect with the firm KVA Matx who has just won the $100,000 Berkeley-Rupp Prize and a semester of teaching at the University of California Berkeley for using architecture to advance female empowerment, specializes in this kind of “soft infrastructure.” And to her, it holds an enormous amount of potential energy to change societies all over the world. “It’s like putting on a pair of glasses and seeing the world in a different way,” she says. “And then you realize, ‘Whoa, I can’t take these glasses off.”
