Turn a toaster on its side - brilliant kitchen hack!

I love a grilled cheese sammy with a bowl of cream of tomato soup, I know, I know how 50s retro, but it's one of my favorite comfort foods.

Next time I'll be trying this trick...
Making a perfect grilled cheese sandwich can take both time and dirty your cookware. If you're just making a quick grilled cheese sandwich try turning your toaster on it's side and toasting the bread ...

Could sleeping for four hours a night be better than sleeping for eight?
Sleeping in one eight-hour chunk is a very recent phenomenon, and lying awake at night could be good for you, according to scientists and historians.

GOOD with numbers? Fascinated by data? The sound you hear is opportunity knocking.

Welcome to the Age of Big Data. The new megarich of Silicon Valley, first at Google and now Facebook, are masters at harnessing the data of the Web — online searches, posts and messages — with Internet advertising. At the World Economic Forum last month in Davos, Switzerland, Big Data was a marquee topic. A report by the forum, “Big Data, Big Impact,” declared data a new class of economic asset, like currency or gold.

Amazing data visualization technique accompanied with very good presentation skills. Really "must watch" 20 minutes clip.

CubeStormer II solves the Rubik's Cube puzzle faster than the human world record.

The mechanics are constructed entirely from LEGO, including four MINDSTORMS NXT kits, with the addition of a Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone running a custom Android app as the robot's brain. Both the MINDSTORMS NXT kits and the Samsung Galaxy SII use a variety of ARM --based processors.

The Internet will Discover You

How do you get discovered on the Internet? Here's a little bit about that. I talk about why and how I share and recommended people like +Elena Kalis and +Daniel Ibanez . I checked, and back when this was recorded, they had less than 5,000 followers, so it is exciting to see how much they've grown on G+. This video should auto-jump ahead to the 8:17 mark.

Derya Unutmaz originally shared:
 
Stressed yeast cells frantically reshuffle their chromosomes in a desperate last bid to find a combination that survives. This "panic" response enables them to rapidly evolve resistance to drugs.

The discovery might also apply to cancer, because cancer cells often have abnormal numbers and arrangements of chromosomes. Understanding one of the mechanisms by which cancers develop resistance to drugs could in turn open up new ways to combat cancer.

The key panic button driving the reshuffling is heat-shock protein 90 (Hsp90), which normally ensures that chromosomes are faithfully copied when cells divide and multiply. When Hsp90 is knocked out, the chromosomes get completely reshuffled. That's normally a disaster, but in a desperate situation it's a potential lifeline.
