The problem with modern rechargeable lithium battery technology – well, one of the many problems – is that over time, the materials on the inside become corroded which lessens their ability to hold a charge.

Hey, remember when we told you about those rumors that physicists may have finally found gravitational waves? It’s been pretty quiet since then, but yesterday fresh rumors surfaced that yes, the discovery is real. And we could have an official announcement by February 11.

An awesome art experiment

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to visit the High Line park in New York (http://goo.gl/maps/LXydT). While walking, I noticed a statue which looked very much like a sidewalk performer.

It looked so realistic that I had to stare at it for a while to make sure it was actually not a real sidewalk performer, anyhow, a real person would have had a little box next to their feet to collect the spectators money, wouldn't they? But there was none. 

Then, I thought: "What would happen if I put such a box myself next to the statue's feet? That should work"

So I came back yesterday, at 3pm, and did the experiment. I collected $10 in half an hour. People were dropping notes and coins and then waiting for the statue to move. At some point, more than ten people were looking at the 3D printed lady at the same time.
Ironically enough, not many noticed the sign planted in the grass explaining the sculpture.

[SOLVED] With the new Google+ how do I select the circle that I want to display?
For example, I want to see only the posts from "Family" or "Friends".

Thanks.
