  • Unbelievable Time Lapse Of Norway’s West Coast [Video]

    Thomas Berge is a full-time Civil Engineer in addition to being a husband and father to four children. You wouldn’t think he’d have a lot of time to indulge in his filmmaking hobby and you’d be right. That’s why it took Thomas three years to compile the footage that makes up “West Coast.” Featuring hyperlapse and time lapse shots of Stavanger and Bergen, the video showcases Norway’s incredible West Coast. Thomas used his Canon EOS 600D to capture every shot but is saving for a full-frame camera for his next project which will include some Milky Way shots.

  • How To Dress Like A Leader In Any Workplace

    The full suit is rare attire for many professions these days, an identity reserved for attorneys, bankers and doctors mostly as the world is becoming more business casual or dare we say mainstream casual. The days of every professional wearing a suit are far behind us, so what exactly do the 5 stages of business attire mean? In today’s world being over dressed is not always a good thing, a more casual approach to office attire creates a sense of comfort in the office which could lead to better production, Sylvie di Giusto, founder of Executive Image Consulting, works with executives looking to improve how they present themselves and professionals hoping to impress their clients and bosses.

  • Instagram Chef Transforms Junk Food Into Art

  • Google Has Made It Easier Than Ever To Find Your Phone

    Maybe you left your phone at the bar last night. Maybe it fell out of your pocket during your Uber ride. Or maybe it’s hidden under some dirty laundry in your room. No matter what, we’ve all lost our phones and we will all lose our phones again in the future. But now Good Guy Google is making it easier to track down your phone. Android Device Manager is already available for Android phones, allowing you to remotely lock and wipe your device, but now Google has made it even easier to find your phone by simply typing “find my phone” into the search bar.

You can even ring your phone for five minutes to really hone in on the location. Now I’ll just have to remember to keep GPS enabled…

  • Makeup Artist Transforms Herself Into Horrifying Comic Villains [13 Photos]

    With so much emphasis on computer generated visual effects, we tend to forget how much can be accomplished with just makeup. And we’re not even talking latex and all manner of prosthetics. With just a little bit of face paint and a whole lot of talent, makeup artists are able to transform any normal schlub into a horrific comic villain, such as Venom or Scarecrow. And Emily Anderson is one such talented individual. On her Instagram feed @likecharity, Emily illustrates her impressive control of body paint with a series of photos that transform her into the most vile of creatures. But her talent isn’t limited to body paint. At Emily Anderson MUA, you can check out all of her work, including some special effects shoots.

And most impressive of all, the whole thing was produced, edited, and directed by the Red Mamba himself, Matt Bonner.

  • SodaStream MIX Will Perfect Your Cocktails

    The original SodaStream is a cool device, but adults are drinking less soda these days and kids are too damn lazy to use the machine, so many have ended up just collecting dust. But as we drink less soda, we seem to be imbibing more cocktails than ever, which is why the SodaStream MIX might find itself used much more than its predecessor. The SodaStream MIX will add fizz to whatever liquid you use and will even alter the carbonation depending on the density of the drink. That means a pulpy juice-based drink will be carbonated differently than a Tom Collins. But that’s not all the MIX is good for. The device also connects to the web and through a touchscreen interface, offers recipes along with options to share your own with mixologists around the world. MIX can also communicate with its mobile app via Bluetooth connectivity. There’s no word yet on the price or release date for the device, but it’s currently on display in Milan this week. For a detailed look at the features and design, check out SodaStream.

  • Would You Believe This is the Interior of Volvo’s New SUV?

    Volvo’s main focus has been on safety for decades, they basically paved the way for autonomous cars, first with self driving and emergency stopping and soon will have a fully functional self driving vehicle on the road, but their XC90 has slowly crept up amongst competitors as a leading product for innovation and luxury. For the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show, the Swedish automaker rolled out a Range Rover-esque version of its new SUV, called the “XC90 Excellence.” “This is our new flagship car,” Volvo senior vice president of design Thomas Ingenlath said. “We have created the ultimate experience of Scandinavian luxury.” Though from the outside the XC90 and Excellence look identical, the interior boasts royal features. The rear cabin has been dubbed a “Scandinavian sanctuary” by the automaker. A retractable control touchscreen, folding tray tables, a refrigerator with bottle and glass holders, a heated and chilled cup holder and to top it all off, handmade crystal glasses by Orrefors are a few of the features the interior features. “What we have designed is amongst the best rear seat experience available in a luxury car,” Mr. Ingenlath said. More than likely the production model will be a T8, which is powered more »

  • The Forbidden Island: 37 Stunning Photos from Inside Cuba

    Photographer unknown and embedded via noticaribe With over 2 million inhabitants Havana is the capital of Cuba and the largest, and arguably most influential, city in the Caribbean. But the vast majority of Americans have never seen what the “Pearl of the Antilles” actually looks like from the inside. Now that American and Cuban relations are on the mend there is a good chance Cuba could become one of the leading tourism hot-spots for Americans like it was before the revolution in the late 1950’s.

  • Browns Unveil 9 New Uniform Combinations for 2015 Season

    The cleveland Browns mad waves a few months ago after they unveiled new creative assets that underwhelmed the world. After decades of monotony Browns fans were hungry for change. They’re expectations fell short after they received a simple color hue change on their signature bland orange. Well yesterday the team unveiled a new set of uniforms boasting 9 different color combinations. Browns president Alec Scheiner said about nine different jersey combos: “We could be like Oregon of the NFL”. Yes, and no. Yes, because it’s a drastic change from the Browns classic style uniforms that keep traditionalists happy, but fall short with a younger fan base, and no, because the Browns are simply catching up to the rest of the league. Most teams in the league already offer alternate or throwback style jerseys, so while we appreciate Scheiner’s excitement, it’s nothing groundbreaking or even new…outside of Cleveland. As Nike highlights, “To honor the city and team history, the Browns’ iconic uniform has always embodied a simple, workmanlike appearance with an immediately recognizable orange and brown color palette. This aesthetic holds an emotional power well beyond the colors, numbers and iconic stripes.” “This modernized uniform design draws influence from Cleveland’s architectural more »

  • Rare Encounter Between Sperm Whale And Underwater Vehicle Caught On Video

    Hercules, a remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV), was almost 2000 feet below the Gulf of Mexico, off the coast of Louisiana, when it was approached by a sperm whale. Although sperm whales have been known to dive as deeply as 10,500 feet, they usually stay far away from any mysterious ROVs. It’s refreshing to see something so incredible going on in the Gulf of Mexico this time of year that doesn’t involve drunk spring breakers at Panama City Beach. To keep up with Hercules and other ROVs, check out the live feeds at Nautilus Live.

  • All 6 Star Wars Films Retold As Infographics

    Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens opens later this year and even if you’re not totally excited, you have to admit that you’re somewhat curious to see what JJ Abrams has in store for the franchise. Especially considering the terrible job he did with Star Trek! But before December, it might be a good idea to remind yourself what went on in the last six Star Wars films. However, making the time to watch all six movies can be difficult. You probably still remember how bad the prequel trilogy was and you may fear the original trilogy doesn’t hold up. So instead of actually watching them all, just take a look at these infographics from Marc Morera and let your memory fill in the rest. Then get pissed off when Abrams retcons everything you know.

  • The Turbulent History Of Gin [Link]

    Until the recent craft cocktail explosion, gin was mostly seen as the drink of choice for red-nosed old men and widows who leave lipstick marks on Benson & Hedges cigarette butts. But throughout its history, the spirit has seen its reputation change time and time again. See how gin, which began as a medicinal concoction, almost destroyed society only to find new life in the cocktail renaissance.

  • Watch This Puppet Rock Out To “Tom Sawyer” On A Tiny Drum Kit [Video]

    Neil Peart, drummer for Canadian rock band Rush, is widely considered one of the best in the biz. And his work on the band’s hit “Tom Sawyer” is probably the pinnacle of air-drummed solos by music nerds. With that in mind, the fact that a puppet can play like Peart without skipping a beat is incredibly mind-blowing. Musician and marionetteer Ricky Syers built the tiny drum kit and controls the puppet in the entertaining video. It’s definitely impressive, but how about some Buddy Rich for a follow-up?

  • Man Meal: How To Dry Age a Cut of Beef Yourself

    If you’ve ever had yourself a cut of aged meat, it’s no wonder why it costs nearly double then regular cuts at most restaurants who serve it. While it’s known that most fresh beef is aged for a few days to allow enzymes in the meat to break down muscle tissue, giving the meat better texture and flavor, the process of long dry aging beef is a bit more ambiguous. The difference between dry-aged beef and the steak you pick up, shrink wrapped at the grocery store is drastic. Drastic enough to never second guess the price on a dry-age cut again. Grocery store steaks are whats known as wet aging, holding in all the moisture after the cut is sealed, while dry aging is exposed to air, so dehydration can further concentrate the meat’s flavor. So why isn’t every piece of meat dry aged? Because it’s expensive and the dried meat has to be trimmed off the cut, making the cut lighter as well, so for some that extra exquisite flavor and texture isn’t worth a lighter, more expensive cut. Though the dry age option might not be cost effective, it’s a great special occasion option for any meat more »

  • Ground Control Is The First Beer Brewed With Space Yeast

    At first glance, Ninkasi Brewing Company’s Ground Control may not seem like anything special. An Imperial Stout brewed with Oregon hazelnuts, star anise and cocoa nibs, the brew sounds like an offering from any of a number of craft breweries around the country. But Ground Control has one huge difference: its ale yeast has been to space and back. Last year, Ninkasi Brewing’s founders embarked on Ninkasi Space Program with the aim of sending yeast to space. The first attempt was made in July with a rocket launched from Nevada’s Black Rock desert. The yeast was packaged to survive extreme temperatures for just 12 hours, so when it was found 27 days later, the yeast had perished. A second attempt in October with the aid of spaceflight firm UP Aerospace proved more successful. The rocket carried the yeast 77.3 miles into space where it floated for more than four minutes. The yeast was quickly retrieved by a US Army helicopter and made its way back to the brewery. The result is Ground Control, an Imperial Stout whose epic space journey tacked an additional $80,000 onto production costs. With that in mind, the $20 price tag for a 22-ounce bottle is more »

  • Daring Photographer Snaps Photo Seconds Before This Lion Attacked

    Atif Saeed is a renowned nature photographer who’s captured beautiful landscapes and wildlife around the globe. His keen eye has produced moments in time that make you appreciate being alive. One of his most recent photos is one of them. Saeed was in a safari park near Lahore, Pakistan when he managed to spot a lion in his natural habitat, but when his camera began to make an alarming sound, the male’s attention was focused on Saeed. Immediately the lion began to B-Line it in the direction of the photographer, though he managed to escape with only 10 feet between him and the predator. Saeed told Daily Mail, “I was thinking – I must show the character and status of lion and this was the only way I could think of to achieve this. The story finished in few seconds as the lion aggressively jumped towards me and I just about scrambled into my car. I was laughing at that time, but now when I think back about the incident I don’t think I would be able to do it again. It was a pretty close encounter.” Check out Atif’s work at Atif Saeed 500px and Facebook All Photos Courtesy of Atif Saeed
