    James Heptonstall has a strange hobby he is calling “Race The Tube.” The idea is really simple. James gets off at one stop on the on London’s “Tube” (their version of the subway) and races to the next stop to beat the train. Telegraph.co.uk has all the details: A commuter has proved that travelling on foot can be just as fast as taking the Tube – and staged a race against a London Underground train to prove his point. James Heptonstall filmed his 380m sprint from London’s Mansion House to Cannon Street station while his friend Noel Carroll took the Circle Line Tube for the same journey. He made it back on to the train with seconds to spare and was applauded by his fellow passengers. The pair created a video of the stunt, which included climbing 75 steps and passing through two ticket barriers, using GoPro cameras and uploaded it to YouTube last month. Mr Heptonstall, 30, an environmental consultant who lives in Hampstead, said they had been inspired by similar challenges in other European cities. He said: “It was just a test project.

  • California Is Burning: 18 Shocking Photos Of Wildfires Sweeping Across The Golden State

    Wildfires are sweeping across all parts of California, from Yosemite National Park to the central region near San Francisco. Thousands of acres have been burned and homes have been lost as Mashable reports. The fires are the most recent in a spate of almost a dozen wildfires burning across the state (see the map below). Around 100 visitors were airlifted from a fire in Yosemite earlier this month when the blaze unexpectedly approached the popular Half Dome peak. California’s extreme drought has increased the risk of wildfire statewide, and the National Weather Service issued a red-flag warning of “fire weather” in Southern California. The message warns that the area’s triple-digit heatwave, high winds, dry vegetation and low humidity mean any spark could set off a huge fire. Dry vegetation in California’s historic drought has worsened the wildfires. This year’s wildfire season has been the most destructive yet resulting in horrifying images on social media posted by locals of their smoking hometowns. To give you an idea of what is going on in California we pulled together the following collection of photos.

  • 10 Reactions To The 2001 Announcement of iPod That Prove Apple Fans Never Change

    Remember the days of your no-skip CD player? Lugging around a wallet sized CD book and extra batteries so you could bump Country Grammar on repeat. Ahh those were the days. The idea of being able to carry around multiple days worth of music in your pocket, with a rechargable battery, seemed almost unfathomable but during a low-key event in October 2001 Steve Jobs changed everything and set Apple on it’s way to becoming the most valuable company in the world. The ramifications of this launch can be seen in this stock chart below: The iPod may have been expensive, especially in a time when the stock market was in the dumps and the U.S. was still reeling from 9/11, but it proved to be completely revolutionary. Storing days and days worth of music in your pocket and making it affordable enough so college students and housewives could afford the technology right alongside celebrities was genius. But not everyone was happy about the announcement. A macrumors.com thread from October 2001 shows that more than a few fans didn’t see Steve Jobs’ vision for the future so let’s take a look at some of the best reactions to the release of the iPod more »

  • Never Forget: 70 Powerful Images From September 11, 2001

    Some of the following imagery is pretty shocking but we made the decision to include these images in the photo set because it is the sad and shocking part of history. The term “Never Forget” has become semi cliche over the last decade but September 11, 2001 is a date that we must never lose sight of. September 11th was one of those days that everyone who was old enough to experience it will never forget. 9/11 also happened in a time of transitioning media. There was no Youtube, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. It was one of the last major world events before the rise of citizen journalism.
