Hagelswag: Chocolate on bread.
Hagelswag is the world's finest chocolate on bread, bottled in Amsterdam. A #Dutch  tradition, ready to be shared with the world.
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hagelswag/hagelswag-chocolate-on-bread

Gerbrand Slag was probably the most famous chocolatier in Amsterdam in the 17th century. Due to the Spanish occupation, Amsterdam was the most important harbor for cacao trade worldwide. In those days, cacao was a luxury product, mostly consumed as a hot beverage. But Gerbrand Slag was no ordinary chocolate maker, he was the most talented and most ambitious chocolatier – in retrospect, he was a visionary. Gerbrand did what no one had done before, he made a chocolate product for everyday use: hagelslag – chocolate sprinkles on bread.

But with his invention came the scorn of his fellow chocolate makers. They weren’t looking for innovation and a product for every simple man. Criticizing the stubbornness of the Dutch he packed his bags, made a large batch of hagelslag and set sail to New Amsterdam, which later became known as the city of New York. But his bad luck didn’t stay behind; with the shore of the Promised Land in sight his ship – The Prince Maurits - sank. Gerbrand survived but the hagelslag did not. And that’s why the world knows our beers and our cheeses but not our beloved chocolate sprinkles on bread.
Hagelswag is the world's finest chocolate on bread, bottled in Amsterdam. A Dutch tradition, ready to be shared with the world.

Cave-digging artist finds inspiration underground
For the past 25 years, Ra Paulette has been carving out man-made caves from the sandstone hills of New Mexico, and then sculpting these spaces into works of art he calls wilderness shrines. Lee Cowan has the story of an artist who does his best work underground.

A Visual Look at 2 Million Chess Games
http://blog.ebemunk.com/a-visual-look-at-2-million-chess-games/

I was interested to see what kind of visualizations I can do, and what patterns would be revealed by considering so many games. It was the biggest collection of games I could find, spanning games from 1801 up to 2013, and players with ratings between 215 (wow!) to 2861 (I wonder who that is?). So I think it's a pretty good representation of chess games all around.

Dutch police are training eagles to take out drones
In the video demonstration, an eagle is seen easily plucking what looks like a DJI Phantom out of the air. However, it's not clear how dangerous this is for the bird. Raptors' talons are incredibly sharp and their grip is strong enough to crush bone, but that doesn't meant they're indestructible and carbon fiber props spinning
The anti-drone arms race just got serious. As tech firms and law enforcement experiment with radio jammers and net-wielding interceptor drones to take down rogue quadcopters, police in the...
