New York during the 1970s via +Mashable

The reason I like photography is, as said in the article, that they can be used as a systematic method of documenting changes in the urban environment, and the changes in social behavior that come with them.
Photographer Camilo José Vergara studied the South Bronx and Lower East Side during a period of economic stagnation.

So Sweden plans to be fossil-free by 2030. When I saw the map, I freaked out.

+Google Photos, an idea for the next update: sometimes when my photos get uploaded, they're mis-oriented. In my camera roll on my iPhone, they look... well, they way they're supposed to. And then for some reason half of them become upside down or sideways. Could you by any chance investigate or improve this?

Introducing Shared Albums – Everyone’s photos, together at last

Privately sharing all the photos you took – and getting the ones you didn’t – is hard. Texting and emailing lots of photos is slow and data-intensive, and sometimes photo sharing apps don’t work across different devices.

Introducing shared albums – a fast and simple way to pool photos with friends and family, no matter what device everyone’s on.

Just select photos and tap “New shared album” to create a link with collaboration on. Friends and family with the link can add photos, get updates, and save photos with just a tap.

Shared albums are rolling out now on Android, iOS, and the web.
• On Android, shared albums will automatically become available in the app, as long as you have v1.10 in the Play Store: goo.gl/55OnIr
• On iOS, get the v1.6 update in the App Store: goo.gl/gjaHPD
• Shared albums are available now on photos.google.com.

[N6 Design]: So here is a preview of the DIN shields. I don't have FF DIN, I have something called "DIN Alternate". This typeface used to be available as part of the OS X font collection, but it stayed with me in OS X El Capitan.

Anyway, the designation is the same except now, there are no more county road shields. They yellow colour has been changed to designate non-paved roads, something that's quite important to the drivers of Russia.

So, when I buy FF DIN, I'll remake a grand edition.

Error: I forgot the 'ь' in the word "магистраль".

[N6 Design]: Here's a sample sign using the shields I created earlier. The distances are not accurate; they're modified for the sake of difference. #transportationdesign

Pantograph

So I've been digging around my grandfather's model railway collection and noticed that company that made all the little trains is called PIKO Spielwaren GmbH (it said "Piko Modelbahn" on the box; I guess they changed their name).

So, being the person that I am, I decided to make my own model railway logo. It's called Pantograph (Пантограф), which is a device that is used to supply a locomotive with electricity from overhead wires. Here it is.

I realize this isn't some high class restaurant, but if you're even in midtown, go and try this place. This a simple food "gallery" (as they call it); they have everything from noodles to sushi. And it's all Korean. Which is awesome. Last time I was there, I got soy ramen noodles with pork...(I think). Anyway, they gave me a giant bowl of it and it was the most delicious bowl of Asian noodles I had in a long time, if not ever. So go ahead and try it - there's plenty to choose from and for lovers of frozen yoghurt, there's a Red Mango (never tried; I usually go the Pinkberry next door). I really really recommend it. Oh - almost forgot - on the top floor, there's a patisserie with mouthwatering pastries: linzer cookies, macaroons, and more. Try it out. You won't regret it, that's for sure.

I have to say, this place is the best for breakfast and German food. I was there for lunch, but I used the brunch menu. I got a chorizo hash with a nice salad on the side. Now, here's the bad part. I got a side of bacon in addition and it was ~$5. What was so wrong about the bacon? Well...the gave me *only four (4)* strips!!! I appreciate your lovely food, Spitzer's, but four strips of bacon _does not_ cost five bucks. It just doesn't. Now for the people reading this, don't get too concerned. Other than that, it was a great atmosphere; the location was beautiful with all its wood panels and communal tables. It's a really talkative place. So there you go.
