You would probably think these bench designs were purposely set up like a puzzle and were made deliberately playful. Truth and behold, these designs were created to ward-off society’s homeless people.
Some urban cities have developed creative zones for playful social interaction within its shared spaces. However cities with high rate of homelessness added self-delimiting and counter-intuitive designs to ward off people from lingering in the shared zones and preventing the area to be converted into potential sleeping lounges.

Five ninth-grade young women from Denmark recently created a science experiment that is causing a stir in the scientific community.
It started with an observation and a question. The girls noticed that if they slept with their mobile phones near their heads at night, they often had difficulty concentrating at school the next day. They wanted to test the effect of a cellphone’s radiation on humans, but their school, Hjallerup School in Denmark, did not have the equipment to handle such an experiment. So the girls designed an experiment that would test the effect of cellphone radiation on a plant instead. Continue reading “Student Science Experiment Finds Plants Won’t Grow Near Wi-fi Router”

And every time they do it, they pay a fraction of a penny more because of a shrewd maneuver by Goldman Sachs and other financial players that ultimately costs consumers billions of dollars.
The story of how this works begins in 27 industrial warehouses in the Detroit area where Goldman stores customers’ aluminum. Each day, a fleet of trucks shuffles 1,500-pound bars of the metal among the warehouses. Two or three times a day, sometimes more, the drivers make the same circuits. They load in one warehouse. They unload in another. And then they do it again. Continue reading “The House Edge: A Shuffle of Aluminum, but to Banks, Pure Gold”

Prince William of Orange married into the English House of Windsor, taking King James II’s daughter Mary as his bride.

Do you ever feel trapped in an invisible control grid that is slowly but surely closing in all around you? Do you ever feel like virtually everything that you do is being watched, tracked, monitored and recorded? If so, unfortunately it is not just your imagination.

By pushing through new appointments to his National Labor Relations Board and his so-called Consumer Financial Protection Bureau—without any consent from the Senate—President Obama is shredding our Constitution.
Utah Senator Mike Lee, a former constitutional lawyer, has stood up against Obama and blamed the President for using “deeply flawed legal reasoning”:
