Preserving and Restoring Your Car Battery

The Noco Genius battery charger/restorer can extend the life of your car battery, and restore a failing battery to good health. While much focus these days is on new battery types; generally the most expensive investment in batteries we currently make is with the decidedly old fashioned lead-acid battery in our vehicles.  The technology dates back to the very first ever rechargeable batteries in 1859, and while there have been modern-day tweaks such as the development in the 1970s of “sealed” or...

you're not going to believe this... introducing cookie!

I fell in love with Cookie the first time I saw her outside the library. I knew her current people wouldn't keep her. Yada yada yada, today she joined our pack. Cookie is a tiny slip of a thing, smaller than Kai, and very skinny. She has not had a lick of training. We haven't had a dog starting at square one in a long time! I have no doubt that with patience, consistency, and the example of her packmates, she'll come along very quickly.We took her home this morning, first stopping at an e...

Writing Narrative Non-fiction with Benjamin Gilmour

Just like fiction, successful narrative non-fiction must immediately engage its readers. But how do we thread the, messy texture of lived experience into a cohesive narrative form? From what narrative position or voice do we tell our story and how should we structure it? What should be left out and what should be included? In this workshop on narrative non-fiction, Benjamin Gilmour, author of Paramedico, will explore the many questions that arise when telling true stories. Benjamin Gilmour is an...

Best traditional Portuguese seafood

As a nation of seafarers, the Portuguese have always had a strong bond with the ocean. This, of course, deeply influences the country’s cuisine.

When you get the chance to try Portuguese seafood, start with these seven traditional dishes. 1. Ameijôas à Bulhão Pato Photo:...

The world’s oldest human just died

The world’s oldest man has just died at the ripe old age of 146. According to his papers, Sodimedjo — also known as Mbah Ghoto (grandpa Ghoto) — was born in Indonesia in 1870, though the country has only officially recorded births since 1900, so there is some speculation as to whether or not his documents are valid. Officials told the BBC, however, that based on interviews and supporting documents, the claim holds up, making him the oldest man alive — until Monday, when he died in his village...

AWS remains in firm control of the cloud infrastructure market

It has to be a bit depressing to be in the cloud infrastructure business if your name isn’t Amazon. Sure, there’s a huge, growing market, and the companies behind Amazon are growing even faster. Yet it seems no matter how fast they grow, Amazon remains a dot on the horizon. It seems inconceivable that AWS can continue to hold sway over such a large market for so long, but as we’ve pointed out before, it has been able to maintain its position through true first-mover advantage.

How to stay awake on long drives

Don’t look now (especially if you’re driving) but we’re hurtling headlong into road-trip season. Family vacations, warm-weather highway adventures, and drives across the country with your dog for a summer job put us on the road for longer hours than we are the rest of the year.
