'...“I can’t even begin to enumerate all the safety protocols and fundamental principles of spaceflight that this particular vehicle violates,” said veteran NASA flight director Raymond Fletcher, who called the crayon-drawn spaceship the “most poorly conceived” and “shockingly hazardous” craft he had ever encountered...'
MONROEVILLE, PA—Listing off a litany of structural and technological flaws, the nation’s leading aerospace engineers issued a stern warning Thursday that local 6-year-old Bradley Koenig’s design for a spaceship is entirely unsafe. Expert...

An international team of astronomers led by Yale University and the University of California-Santa Cruz have pushed back the cosmic frontier of galaxy exploration to a time when the universe was only 5% of its present age.

The team discovered an exceptionally luminous galaxy more than 13 billion years in the past and determined its exact distance from Earth using the powerful MOSFIRE instrument on the W.M. Keck Observatory’s 10-meter telescope, in Hawaii. It is the most distant galaxy currently measured.

The galaxy, EGS-zs8-1, was originally identified based on its particular colours in images from NASA’s Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes. It is one of the brightest and most massive objects in the early universe.

A plan to plant billions of trees using drones.
Industrial deforestation is responsible for the destruction of forests worldwide and results in disruptive effects on their ecosystems, including reduced biodiversity, increased soil erosion and the release of greenhouse gas emissions, to name a few. Planting a tree takes a lot longer than cutting one down, and it's a relatively slow and expensive process. Fortunately, a solution may be on the horizon.

Photoshop users make the impossible possible, for that we thank them for taking creativity to places we never could've dreamed. Some things are so amazing, we're not sure if they're Real or Photoshop.

Valve is now going to allow developers to ban people from games via Steam itself. The way the article reads, a developer can say "ban this user" and that user will be locked out of the game on Steam itself. Not sure how I feel about this.
In a move that’s bound to yield some very interesting results, Valve just announced that it was changing the way it administers bans on its ridiculously popular gaming service Steam. Rather than adjudicating the entire process on its own, the company is effectively handing over power to individual game developers.

Introduction
I'm a contract developer, focusing mostly on Flash AS3 development for a number of ad agencies in Toronto. 

Over the years, developing all types of projects for small and large companies alike, I realized the similar requirements between them and slowly built a set of classes that I could reuse from project to project.

Through my experiences in this industry, I've built my own open-source Flash framework called Redblox to help me build projects in Flash in a fraction of the time.
