Tarotscopes That Slay: New moon in Aries

I am writing this to you from my at-home sanctuary that my husband and I lovingly call the “spirit room”. It’s just the second bedroom in our tiny two-bedroom Los Angeles bungalow but it’s also a vortex for healing and love. I am gazing out the window at the bougainvillea in full bloom, creeping along the dark green fence that separates me from my neighbor. If I lean a little to the left I can see the giant cactus that I planted from a trimming my friend Michelle gave me years ago. The sky is a...

Learning about Innovation from Mr. Edison

Thomas Edison died on October 18, 1931. Three days later, at the request of President Hoover, people all across America turned out their lights for a minute or two.

They covered a range of devices and technologies. There was electric light and mass communications, batteries, sound recording, motion pictures, and more. Today, if you want to ...

My inventions by Nicola Tesla

Nikolas Tesla’s patents and theoretical work helped form the basis of wireless communication and radio. He is also known for his high-voltage, high-frequency experiments in New York and Colorado Springs, experiments in X-rays, and his ill-fated attempt at intercontinental wireless transmission in his unfinished Wardenclyffe Tower project.   “An autobiography, which gives one an understanding of what Tesla was going through while he came up with his world changing inventions.” Recommended by Shas...

Tesla – Anatomy of a Great Company Name

Tesla is a fantastic name for revolutionary electric car company, but not a name that could navigate a typical corporate naming process and survive.The death of a thousand cuts would include:We can’t acquire Tesla.com (they were at TeslaMotors.com for the first 8 years), we’d have to use Teslamotors.com, a non-starter.

Guy Apparently Convinces Friend That Dwayne Johnson & The Rock Are Twins

Apparently one of the things the Rock is cooking is controversy about whether or not he's his own twin brother. That's at least in the mind of "Becky," a person who now believes that Dwayne Johnson and the Rock are two different people.A lot of people have shared this text chain, which could easily be fabricated, but the earliest version we can find after exhaustive search (five minutes of Googling) is here.I fucking love becky so much pic.twitter.com/GQt0sVzBDb— Nik (@NikkyRoberts) February 23...

Tesla - Not a Dream - (2016) :90 (USA)

This is a spec ad written and directed by the Freise Brothers, identical twins, Adam and Nathan. As a spec directors spot, I'll only look at at the cinematic story-telling here and not the sales proposition, having said that, I think it's really quite good from a directing standpoint. Nicola Tesla's words (sans Franco-serbian accent) with a the distinct popping and hissing from early phonograph recordings is the perfect VO and the inspiration that the brothers used to tell the story. There...
