By now, the entire Netflix indulging world has heard of the diminutive-yet-formidable Mari Kondo.

But very few know that color can affect learning abilities as well.

Better yet, it features a simplistic and intuitive interface that makes it possible to plug and play in seconds. Simply hook it up to your smartphone and instantly share your favorite movies, music v...

Guy Develops Clever Way to Unload Huge Concrete Pipes By Himself

Don't try this in front of the OSHA inspector: This anonymous tradesman has developed a that's-so-crazy-it-just-might-work system for getting massive concrete pipes off of a truck by himself. I suspect he's doing it by himself because all of his assistants were killed during the initial attempts. In fact I think he got the tires by stripping their trucks, since they won't be using them anymore.

Unfortunately, temperatures dropped and killed the plants. According to the BBC, the project was designed by 28 Chinese universities, and the expe...

Permaculture feeds and empowers refugees in Uganda

Refugees arrive at Palabek refugee camp in Northern Uganda with the clothes on their back and what little they carried. New arrivals, many from South Sudan, receive a tarp, tent poles, a water can, a cooking pot and a ration card for enough food to make starvation a slower process. While aid agencies swarm Sub-Saharan Africa, home to more than 26 percent of the world’s refugee population, few make their desired impact. But African Women Rising (AWR) is having startling success. The organization...
