thepolo: This is a program that ‘warmifies’ your computer screen after the sun goes down. Basically, it tracks the sun and if it’s out, your computer screen is normal, and when it goes down, it gradually gets warmer. I’m on my first night with this, but I have to say, the light is a lot less irritating. Also, it can be disabled whenever you want, should you need to do more serious, active work....
Revolution Porn →
spiegelman: I get a sense that there’s a lot of rah-rah revolution going on by American observers of the Egyptian protests and the Tunisian overthrow, with a lot of knee-jerk criticism of the United States for supporting the “wrong” side in the conflict. It all seems very Tea Partyesque to me, salivating over the spectacle of radical change without any real thought whether the actual...

evanfleischer: The U.S. has secretly been backing opposition figures for the past three years. 1,000 protesters have tried to storm the Interior Ministry. The Washington Post wants Mubarak to go. It seems the army is siding with the protesters. Here’s Ian Black on why what Mubarak did last night — firing his … cabinet? — was so insufficient: “Mubarak (…) failed to give any sign that he was...

The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately...– Elizabeth Foley I totally agree with this.

Big cities are not always the biggest polluters →
For instance, the sprawling western U.S. city of Denver’s per capita emissions were nearly double those in New York City, home to 8 million inhabitants and a heavily used subway system. as a semi-frequent flyer to denver, i can safely say its also probably because everyone and their dog drives an SUV in denver.

Unfortunately, a closer look at the numbers reveals that nationally, key indicators of literacy are on the decline. The scores that earned D.C. the top spot in 2010 would, in 2004, only be enough to reach 7th place. i bolded the last...

Pizza / McPizza - McDonald’s has also attempted pizza at various times, with an apple-pie–like McPizza and more conventional McDonald’s Pizza. A line of personal-sized pizzas was first seen in the late 1970s in test-market stores near interstate highways around Milwaukee and Madison.
