Building that crumpled during the Taiwan earthquake.
It's been many years but sure hope they catch the bastard construction crews.
#taiwan #earthquake 
The only high-rise building to have collapsed in the Taiwanese city of Tainan following a major earthquake on Saturday seems to have had serious constructions flaws. The collapse has exposed cooking-oil cans embedded inside the building’s concrete walls.

To me (An Aussie) I think the biggest problem is that a reasonable percentage of republicans actually like this idiot..
Which doesn't say much for the mental capacity of a reasonable percentage of Americans.

A few thoughts on the original Microsoft Band
(just got a used one cause my Fitbit Charge doesn't have heart rate sensor. Fitbit's build quality doesn't often inspire confidence)
____________________________
I was doing a device top up and it dawned on me all the contact pins on the Band 1 cable are all exposed.
Guess I'll leave the cable not plugged in till I'm charging. Don't want to find out if my USB power supply is fused if the pins on the Band 1 cable are shorted by contact with metal/conductive surface. Yikes.

Tried Band 1 on right (dominant) wrist and it felt heavy. Switched to left wrist and it immediately felt better as left wrist has been used to watches weight in the past.
The Band does feel very lumpy on the wrist. I ended up affixing footwear comfort pads onto the left/right bulges (batteries?) of the Band to make it more comfortable to wear (Dr. Scholl's Moleskin Plus). Don't laugh.
First night with the Band and woke up forgetting which way I had worn the device so ended up pressing on the inboard release catch a few times wondering if the Band had ran out of batteries already. (How do you tell the release catch button from the Power Button?)
Will be interesting to see how to fit the bulky Band 1 under sleeve of winter jacket when I take it out for the first time.
The Band 1 is quite a shrunken down ankle monitor of a hulk of a device. I have small wrists and the whole flat display is nearly as wide as my wrist. It's nice to have a large display but when it makes the device so klunky...
Think the 'Pimp My Band' app for Windows Phone 8.1 is the only way to get the battery level of the device. Only way I've found now is to actually plug Band 1 into charge cable to get battery level. Guess I'll run the Band 1's power down to see if it has any low battery warning like the Fitbit has.

Chinese New Year celebration in charts
#chinesenewyear 
It's time to paint the town red, blow things up, visit grandma and eat hundreds of millions of chickens. Yes, it's the Lunar New Year, and cities from Shanghai to Singapore to Vancouver are preparing to usher in the Year of the Monkey.

What lurks in yonder tasty glazed donut?
#donut 
Food mash-ups aren’t as easy as they look. For every Cronut there’s a million cragels (that’s a croissant-bagel hybrid, for everyone who missed the wave) that just don’t come out right. But if there’s one food mash-up that got everything right—at…

Guess I'll have to purge the kitchen.
Won't help much as I've eaten all the snacks already
#clutter 
Cluttered and chaotic environments can cause stress, which can lead us to grab more of the indulgent snacks -- twice as many cookies according to this new study!

When the lower Manhattan crane fell.
Nasty. So sad someone died and there were injuries.
#cranecollapse
An electrician working in a nearby building to the crane that collapsed in the TriBeCa area of Manhattan caught the moments it fell on video.
