    I’m headed here in a few weeks. Also Seti river valley near Pokhara to visit some climate scientists whose contract I’m managing.

    Studio Life—Francesca Dimattio

    DiMattio’s computer, iPod, and other electronics had a patina of oil paint on the areas most touched. She eventually was forced to replace the failing computer, even though its paint-coated track pad still worked. “I’d had no intention of buying a new one,” she laughed. “It was never the paint that was the problem.”

    Probably one of the coolest and creepiest places I have ever been to!

    An entire stadium here in Miami facing the ocean was abandoned and basically taken over by skaters and taggers here in Miami. Every inch of this place has been graffitied on and it looked like something out of an end of the world type movie

    In Amsterdam, each car that drives by this speed sign and stays below the 30 kilometers per hour speed limit raises 0,03 for the neighborhood. Functioning as a reward system for good civic behavior, the city then regularly pays what’s due to the neighborhood and the money is intended to go towards local community projects.

    Iconic view at Borobudur today. Extremely photogenic, even with crowds of people.

    Mosquitos were born to bite us, and aside from lighting worthless tiki candles, haplessly swatting them away, or resorting to spraying toxic DEET all over ourselves, there’s really not a whole lot we can do about it. Imagine then, if you could be encapsulated in an anti-mosquito bubble simply by wearing a small square sticker. Not only would it save mosquito-magnets like myself some really uncomfortable moments, it could be a major game changer in the way we prevent mosquito-borne illnesses like Malaria, Dengue Fever, and West Nile Virus.

    The good news is that a sticker like this is not some far away concept dreamed up by scientists in a lab–it’s actually a real thing that you’ll likely be able to find on the shelves of your local Walgreens sometime in the not-so-distant future.
