How long can O’Rourke wait as 2020 pace picks up around him?

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — You won’t see Beto O’Rourke announce whether he’s running for president in 2020 for a while.

Parachuting Drone Deemed Safe for Large Crowds

One of the most common uses for drone technology is monitoring crowds. Whether it is for entertainment or emergency personnel use, unmanned aerial vehicles are real game changers when it comes to providing a cheap, efficient way to get surveillance from the air. The only problem with all of this is that it has to be done in as safe a way as possible – and that’s often easier said than done when you’re talking about flying a drone above large crowds of people.

Norwegian liquor travels the world

People have different definitions of what it means to be well-traveled. For some, it means a big portion of your time is spent exploring new places. To others, it simply means racking up passport stamps. Every drop of Linie Aquavit, a spirit from Norway, is well-traveled regardless of how you define it. In fact, all of the Linie sold since 1821 has seen more of the world than the vast majority of humans. Before being bottled, Linie is aged in 500-liter barrels that previously held Oloroso she...

The Best Film Camera of All Time is…

The best film camera of all time is the Olympus OM-1.   That’s all folks, end of the article. Ok, bias is a thing…my favourite is the Olympus OM-1 Photo by Martin Taylor Ok Just Kidding…Sort Of… Alright, alright, I do realise that just because a camera is my favourite camera, it isn’t necessarily the best.   This is probably the most subjective thing to try writing about, but I’m going to try to address it without starting World War 3 (or maybe I will…it is the internet!).

Miami Beach Starts Using Blimps After Florida Drone Ban Comes Into Effect

Drones get a bad rap, that’s for sure, but they offer a lot of advantages in certain areas. One of those is helping police and emergency personnel. Image via Pixabay from Pexels.com. But a recent law in Florida banning the use of drones in monitoring private citizens has caused the police department there to get a little creative. In fact, they’re bringing back an old – but classic – technology to help them get around the Freedom from Unwanted Surveillance Act, passed in 2015. FStoppers descri...

5 Mouthwashes People With Good Breath Always Use

In his series The Art Of Love, which was written in 2 C.E., the ancient Roman poet Ovid offered tips for lustful women. To attract a partner, he wrote that a woman must learn many things — including how to avoid showing "a black tooth" — but most important was this: She must never smell. “She whose breath is tainted should never speak before eating and she should always stand at a distance from her lover's face," he wrote.It's no exaggeration to say that people have been obsessed with bad brea...

Random Excellence: Frank Stefanko

Frank Stefanko, Corvette Winter From what I read about it, this is one of the most famous pictures of Bruce Springsteen, showing the singer as a young man with the Corvette he bought with the proceeds from Born to Run (and still has).

Unlocking Creativity: Are These Creativity-Inhibiting Mindsets Holding You Back?

IN AN IBM global survey of CEOs, the overwhelming consensus was that more than rigor, management discipline, integrity or even vision, successfully navigating an increasing complex world will require creativity. In a world where we must adapt or die, we need creative solutions. In struggling to generate a sufficient number of creative ideas, we typically blame the number of creative individuals in our organization or hierarchy and bureaucracy. But in Unlocking Creativity, Michael Roberto takes...
