Bear losing his mind. His Kong ball rocks his squishy world. He's such a fatty melt.

lol @ fatty melt!
 
There are a gazillion churches in Buffalo with cool architecture, this is one of them. Admittedly there are better, but it's freakin' cold out and I caught this shot walking to the car.

I somehow didn't realize that +Mozilla Firefox apps from the Marketplace could be installed in OS X. In the pic the three apps you see open are from the Firefox Marketplace; SoundCloud, Wikipedia and zMaps (uses Google Maps).
Just drag them from your applications folder or launchpad to the dock like any other program.
I quite like this. It makes sense they are web apps, but yeah, cool.

Cool. I'll take a deeper look this weekend.
 
San Fernando Valley residents, it's been going on for awhile apparently :/
 
This advertising company uses #Drones to track your smartphone's location.  What do we have to do to keep private nowadays? #privacy #security #noflyzone 
Following a long tradition of advertisers ruining fun things for everyone else, a Singapore-based marketing firm is testing drones that can track the location of people below them, using the Wi-Fi and cellular transmission signals from their phones.

I need some.
 
I like the slickness of +Mozilla Firefox  Share. Stays out of your way, it's smooth and fluid too. Just needs a few more services, but has most of the big ones already.

Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch
"The invention of synthetic plastic created an era of disposable products. Watertight and endlessly malleable, plastic is the perfect invention yet, its miraculous durability is also its curse because it never goes away. In the early 21st Century, rumors about an island of garbage somewhere in the Pacific Ocean, started to rise. TV host and filmmaker Angela Sun, decided to investigate. Her journey takes her thousands of miles from human civilization. There, in what should be a remote tropical paradise, she discovers an ecosystem inundated by plastic waste. Exposed to seawater and sunlight, tons of discarded plastics are breaking down into smaller fragments resembling food to fish and birds. The images Angela uncovers, combined with the latest evidence from researchers, shows that the truth behind the myth is much worse than imagined. A growing toxic confetti is transforming the oceans and is also working its way up the food chain that humans depend on. Angela returns from Midway with even more questions. She seeks out scientists and health experts who reveal that chemicals in many of the plastic products we take for granted are harmful. She encounters environmental activists trying to raise awareness and legislators struggling to address the problem. She uncovers the hidden truth about recycling and attempts to contact the leaders of an all-powerful petrochemical industry in control of our limitless production and consumption of plastic. Angela's journey is one that everyone living in a disposable society needs to see."

While some of you were watching the Oscars, ISIS burned the library of Mosul to the ground.

Eight thousand rare books and manuscripts destroyed. 

Eight thousand.
