  • Red Bull 400: An Insiders Look At The Toughest 400 Meters In The World

    The Red Bull 400 could very well be the most difficult sprint in the world. This year 300 male and female contestants met at a ski-jump slope in Planica, Slovenia for a 400-meter vertical sprint that pushed their muscles to the absolute limit, in an attempt to reach the top first. It is basically the complete opposite of the Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling race. The sprint took a grueling seven minutes to complete and Planica offered the steepest slope in the race’s history.

  • 10 Record Breaking Major League Baseball Contracts

    Baseball players are among the highest paid professional athletes—salaries that allow the leagues’ brightest stars to earn astronomical sums of money. Currently, the league’s highest paid player is Alex Rodriguez, who will make $29.5 million before the conclusion of the 2013 Major League Season. But, according to the folks at baseball almanac, Rodriguez’s current contract—while mammoth—is not unprecedented. And, while Rodriguez is the highest paid player in the history of the Big Leagues, there were other players that predate Rodriguez who—for their time—made unthinkable amounts of money. The players on this list are all players who became some of the most affluent players in sports history due to their teams demand for their talents. Before beginning, a reminder is needed to re-establish the fact that this is an article that contracts record-breaking contracts—it is not an article chronicling the largest contracts in Major League Baseball history.

  • 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 »
