While that series created a new angle to look at the author from, it’s important not […]

What Makes Your Brain Happy And Why You Should Do The Opposite by David DiSalvo

I know I frequently go on about learning more about a book from its sub-title than its main title, but ‘What Makes Your Brain Happy And Why You Should Do The Opposite’ makes it clear from the start what its author David DiSalvo is on about. Whether it’s true or not is going to depend […]

New tech in the air. Real and…?

There are a couple of photos floating around the interweb of some interesting new airborne tech. The first, which is definitely real (unless NASA have started doing spoofs) is the X-48C concept craft based around a single delta-shaped fuselage.

Who’s in the house?

Here’s some new Doctor Who-inspired leggings and a dress from a firm called Black Milk. The only trouble is, looking at this, you’re going to need to have the body of a very thin teenager to be able to squeeze into them (or maybe it’s just the model they are using). You know, like Wilma […]
