  • Satellite Map from NASA Shows Earth’s Vegetation [10 HQ Photos]

    Just how much greenery covers the Earth? Now we have an answer, thanks to a new interactive map produced by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that shows how much of the earth is covered in living plants. Using the Suomi NPP satellite, researchers were able to gather a year’s worth of satellite images and compile them into a single high-resolution image that shows which parts of the planet are the lushest, and also which ones are covered by the sparsest vegetation.

  • Tesla is Leading the Charge with A Battery Swap Option

    Electric car manufacturer, Tesla, has recently announced a game changer in the world of refueling your car. As we all know, Tesla’s home charge is the most ideal, simply plugging in to the nearest outlet in a garage or driveway for the night and waking up to a juiced up sportscar that has a range of 200 miles, but if you find yourself in a high speed chase or just want to juice up, Tesla Superchargers provide half a charge in about 20 minutes and are strategically placed to allow owners to drive from station to station with minimal stops. Although there are only eight around the country now, by the end of 2013, there will be enough Superchargers around the country to successfully drive coast to coast and of course, they’re all completely free of charge. Well you know what charge I mean. With the leaps and bounds Tesla has/will be making in the near future, the game changer is their new Battery Swap option. For $60-80, about the same price it takes to fill up the average car these days, you can switch your battery in 90 seconds and be on your way. The question is what happens more »

  • The Face of Dejection: Tim Duncan’s Post Game Interview

    This is the face of a man in the twilight of his carrer, who played the game he was born to play above and beyond the expectation of someone his age. A man who’s seen the trophy at the end of the road and managed to grab it every time he’s come within reach of it. You can talk about how a player acts when he wins a championship, LeBron’s class and appreciation for a worthy adversary, a humble post game interview from the contemporary best player in the world. But if you want to see the face of a man uphold his integrity after he worked, arguably, harder than any player on the court only to have his 5th NBA title taken away from him, then take a look at Tim Duncan in this post game 7 press conference. A devastated Duncan addressed the media, anguish oozing from his eyes when asked if game 6 would be the game that sticks out in his mind, he replies “For me, no, Game 7. Missing a lay-up to tie the game, making a bad decision down the stretch, unable to stop Dwyane and LeBron. For me, Game 7 is always going to more »

  • Blood and Ice or Words and Nerds?

    ESPN has a contract to broadcast the National Spelling Bee but spends less time covering the NHL, during the freaking playoffs, than the average person takes to use spell check.  That’s right, the self-proclaimed Worldwide Leader in Sports will drop around thirty seconds to tell you who won the Stanley Cup but broadcasts a full TWO HOUR play along version of “the Bee” [Dork Porn]. Bullshit, B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T, Bullshit. There, that’s a sentence that ESPN execs can understand.  Men are doing battle, literally skating on thin ice, risking injury for the glory of the once-in-a-thousand-lifetimes privilege of hoisting the Stanley Cup above their heads knowing their name will be inscribed on its side for the future of mankind to remember them by.  Meanwhile, 281 virgins-to-the-day-they- die are locked in vocab combat trying to remember if ‘misspell’ has two s’ (sp?  Who cares.) I WILL PAY THE BLOOD AND ICE PRICE!  The TV ratings for NHL dictate more coverage.  The NHL is up 18% in overall viewership from last year and just recently set an all time viewing high for NBC Sports Network at a 2.07 rating (previous record was 1.97).  It is the 4th most watched sport in the USA and more »

  • The Top 5 NBA Free Agent Head Coaches

    The NBA Finals are often a great reminder of our love for the game. Much of the offseason conversation usually centers on the superstar free agents. Take last year for example; fans and analysts alike were clamoring about now-Lakers center Dwight Howard’s future destination. A few years back, the Miami Heat mad one of the greatest offseason moves and signed three of the top free agents in a class that was incomparable to any before, which is partly why the team is still playing basketball. But this offseason is different. The hot free agents don’t compare to the Howards or Wades of seasons past. Instead, the focus is placed not on the court itself but along the sidelines, in an empty chair next to the bench. Yes, the hottest free agents in the 2013 offseason may in fact be head coaches. And they deserve the honor this year considering that a handful of these coaches made the playoffs. For one reason or another, the coach and his respective franchise hae decided to part ways, leaving contending teams with loads of potential but very little directions. Like the superstar free agent moves, these head coach signings can and will alter the more »
