  • How Dwight Eisenhower Can Save Your Life (and Other Ass-Kicking Time Management Tips)

    I walk a thin line in trying to give advice about time management. Most people think of time management as: stop doing fun things and work all the time. That is not what I propose. I think time management is important so you can get out of the library (or office), stop pulling your hair out, and enjoy a beer with your friends before your four years pass you by. So, what qualifies me to write an article about time management? During my senior year, I managed to balance 3 jobs, a freelance business, and being a full time student with an honor roll GPA (all said, totaling 70+ hours/week), and I still found time to write this article. While I’m not superhuman, I think I’ve mastered the ability to spend my time the way I want to spend it. And I don’t want to single out college students. The ideas I am proposing can be applied just as easily to those already in their careers.

  • You Can Tell A Woman’s Personality Based on Her Sandwich Order. Back Me Up Science.

    Next time you decide to go on a date you might be better off taking a lady out to lunch instead of dinner. Food Psychologist Dr Elizabeth Jones, of Mindlab, who conducted the correlation analysis study for Warburtons said: “Personality traits tend to go hand-in-hand with personal habits and routines, which allows us to match the type of bread and filling a woman chooses to have at lunch with a personality group. “Down to earth women go for White bread, foodies prefer Wraps and females who think realistically pick Wholemeal.” The Daily Express said of the research: “Women who were fans of the BLT on seeded bread were ‘opportunists’ who lived for the moment. These BLT women demonstrated common sense and had a good sense of humour, according to the research. Ladies who picked the humble ham salad on white bread were ‘forward thinkers’, constantly seeking inspiration and were inventive and original. Beef roll devotees were ‘impulsives’, being able to work to tight deadlines and enjoy the thrill of spectator sports. Lovers of Cheese and pickle were the ‘brainiacs’, full of ideas, logical and enjoy crosswords.”

But what does this mean for the business? Is this beer bubble about to burst? Should I hold off on brewing my own Cooch Hooch?

  • Bird’s Eye View Airport Photos Are Surprisingly Peaceful [12 Photos]

    When you think about airports, you think about the stress of arriving hours before your flight; the stress of getting fondled and interrogated by TSA; the stress of making it to your gate before your flight leaves despite arriving at the airport hours ago. And if you’re afraid of flying, there’s that, too. Airports are not a peaceful place. At least, they aren’t from our point of view, here on the ground. But when you look down at airports from satellite images, they don’t seem so bad. Just expanses of runways and some cute little planes. Even the world’s busiest airports, like Heathrow and JFK, look serene. For more of these calming airport images, check out Holding Pattern. Just don’t let these pictures fool you, airports are still awful.

  • 11 Eerie Photos Of 1960s NYC Devoid Of People

    French photographer Eugene Atget was well known for his photos documenting early 1900s Paris.

  • The Myth of the Alpha Male [Link]

    Everyone knows that there are two types of men—alphas and betas. The alphas are powerful and have their choice of any woman while the betas get walked all over. It’s a simple theory, gleamed from observing animals like chimps and wolves, and it has been applied to humans for ages. But is it really that simple? Scott Barry Kaufman, Scientific Director of the Imagination Institute, doesn’t think so.

  • Dubai is Creating the World’s First Climate Controlled City/ Bond Villain Headquarters

    Dubai has it’s fair share of surreal accommodations, unheard of luxury and a police squadron of super-cars, so why not? Why not work on plans for a city completely separated from the conditions of the outside world? Why not take 48 million square-feet and turn it into a mini metropolis? It’s called the Mall the of the World, and it will be the world’s first city-sized enclosure allowing it’s residents to nearly avoid outside conditions completely. The point is to give people the ability to experience normal city life inside the controlled environment for weeks on end. With Dubai’s summer temperature averaging 104 degrees (F) the city will be looked at as the premiere destination for travel or even seasonal business. Their winter temperatures reach around 72 degrees (F), during those months the promenade would open it’s roofs allowing cooler temperatures to flow through the city streets. The full monty will include over 100 hotels & serviced apartment buildings, including over 20,000 hotel rooms, the largest theme park in the world and the largest mall in the world, at over 8 million square-feet.

  • 10 of the Toughest Man Meals on the Planet

    According to Hemingway, a man’s diet should consist of ham, sausage, sauerkraut, and beer. In other words, Hemingway thinks men should follow the diet of a German soldier. But what dishes scream manliness like bacon and eggs or simply a pint of scotch, neat. Here, we’re trying to tackle the manliest meals from around the world. We’re not looking for heart-attack burgers or  twenty-three pounds of pork. Instead, we’re giving you hearty, traditional dishes fit for the men at the navy yard. Schweinshaxe, Germany: More specifically, pork knuckle. Juicy and crackly, the Germans serve this platter atop a few pounds of Knödel (potato dumplings), sauerkraut, or red cabbage. Up the Mante: Cleanse your palate with a liter of Augustiner, which is basically another meal in itself.   Black Pudding, United Kingdom: Not pudding in any American sense, black pudding is actually sausage encased with pork blood and oatmeal. Up the Mante: Order with a battered and fried with a traditional English, served with massive slabs of bacon — not like our thin, overly crisp version — fried eggs, more sausage, and, of course, a cup of tea.   Sannakji, South Korea: This South Korean staple turns dinnertime into Fear Factor. more »

The capsule is carried up via large balloon, reaching the 100,000 feet mark in about 90 minutes. The capsule will then float around for a few hours before returning to terra firma.

  • Las Vegas Time-Lapse In 4K Will Blow You Away [Video]

    High-Definition is extremely impressive…if you’re living in the early 2000s. But here in the mid-2010s, 1080p no longer cuts it.
