​Sick of Windows spying on you? Go Linux
With Windows 10 snooping on your every keystroke, it's time to consider an alternative: the Linux desktop, e.g. +Linux Mint 
You can try to turn Windows 10's data-sharing ways off, but, bad news: Windows 10 will keep sharing some of your data with Microsoft anyway.

Dutch Windwheel - A wind machine you can call home
_The building is anticipated to pay for itself in ten years.
Windmills have dotted the Dutch countryside for centuries. But in densely populated cities, whooshing turbines are a tough sell. A new concept called the Dutch Windwheel could offer a silent, low-maintenance alternative._
This futuristic building will provide power and panoramic views

Amazing skills and beautiful nature.
 
Amazing mountain biking feat!

For the first time in one of his films Danny climbs aboard a mountain bike and returns to his native home of the Isle of Skye in Scotland to take on a death-defying ride along the notorious Cuillin Ridgeline.

Google Hangouts goes it alone, free of Google+

More of the dismantling of Google+, but this one is a logical move.

Rotterdam to consider trailling plastic roads
The days of putting up with crumbling asphalt streets might just come to an end. Construction company +VolkerWessels has revealed plans for recycled plastic roads that are both more sustainable and more practical than old-fashioned blacktop. Besides reusing material, they'd last about three times longer and survive greater temperature ranges

#construction   #Rotterdam   #road  
Dutch city could be first to pave its streets with recycled plastic bottles, a surface claimed to be greener, quicker to lay and more reliable than asphalt

Exploring Biblical Jordan
David Nunn explores all of Jordan's Biblical sites and recalls events which occurred on them. 
Follow the adventures of Lot, as he fled from Sodom and was sheltered in a cave; Jacob, as he wrestled with God by the river Jabbock; and Moses, as he led the great Exodus northwards from Aqaba. There's Mount Hor, where Aaron died and was buried; the plains of Moab, where Moses gave his final instructions and blessing; Beth Peor, where he pleaded to be allowed to enter the Promised Land.

The Dutch now have a wholly solar-paneled cycle path connecting two suburbs in Amsterdam – the first of its kind in the world. The SolaRoad will convert the sun’s energy into electricity for the grid.
