Sailor’s Choice: A Monkey that flits between sea and shore

Nostalgia is a powerful emotion. After all, it’s the foundation of business for brands such as Harley-Davidson and Indian, and model lines such as Triumph’s ‘modern classics’ and the BMW R nineT and R18.

John Sommers II/Getty Images Even though the unemployment rate declined to 7.9% and 661,000 jobs were added last month, the uptick in the number of Americans who are long-term unemployed shows there is still a long way to go before the jobs market fully recovers.

Inside Colombia’s ‘Air Chapo’ Cocaine Shipping Scandal

The Cybunker is the off-the-grid garage+bunker the Tesla Cybertruck deserves

Street Sleeper: Bunker customizes the new Street Twin

Unique Fuzzy House offers locals a public shortcut through the building

When architecture studio Situation-based Operation (SO) was asked to create a home in Chiang Mai, the brief came with an unusual request: preserve the existing desire path. Since the plot had been left empty for many years, locals had created a desire path, or shortcut, through the land between two roads—and the owner wanted to keep that path functional for the community. As a result, the architects designed the Fuzzy House, a concrete home that blurs the line between public and private use. ...

Bunker, Startup That Helps Insure Gig Workers, Nabs Cash from Chubb

Many people assume that the growing “gig economy” presents few barriers to entry for workers who want to, say, start driving for Uber, or shopping for the grocery delivery service Instacart. That’s true in some cases, but many independent contractors—everyone from field service technicians to software consultants—must meet a surprising number of requirements before they can begin a new assignment. For example, it’s common for companies that contract with freelancers to require them to car...

BIG hides an invisible museum beneath Denmarks sand dunes
