Neat interactive guide by The Guardian. FAQ on climate change.

Considering the immense variety of Malaysian food, this review of it by Serious Eats is pretty amazing.

"America gets a lot of credit as a melting pot. But it's got nothing on Malaysia." HELL YES.

Hilarious! How people in science see each other (Check out for how professors see undergraduates)

Online vigilante group Gaysec had OpsRamadhan where they accused my friend arlene tan of being the one behind anti-Islam online personality Sitt Al-Wuzara.

This is why their accusations are bollocks & why you're a moron if you believed it.

First official photo of Henry Cavill as Superman in Zack Snyder's upcoming Man of Steel.

I'm not too big on the honeycomb/scales pattern of the fabric, but I'm just glad they made the S-crest big again. Still can't see if he's wearing red shorts/underpants.

Does this signal a too-grim image for Superman? In any case, looking forward to a star-studded film with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner and Russell Crowe!

+Unscientific Malaysia is in this month's JUICE for a feature on growing scenes in Malaysia. Because of that, I seem to have appeared on their front cover.

Get your copy to read more about us, or see my mug (I think +Hawa O is somewhere inside too, so yeah)

New features in Google+!

via +Pete Cashmore
Thanks everyone for another amazing week on G+! Here's a sampling of features and fixes we've rolled out most recently:

- You can now re-order your circles by dragging them left or right on the Circles page, and they'll stay that way across Google+. (For bonus points, try dragging one of your circles into the top half of the Circles page.) [original post: http://goo.gl/Jy4Vv]

- Webmasters can now see and test updates of the +1 button before they're launched to all users on their site [original post: http://goo.gl/70a31]

- The +1 button now renders up to 3x faster, and webmasters can make things even speedier by using the new async javascript snippet [original post: http://goo.gl/GhWGe]

- You can now choose who can start a huddle with you: Anyone, your Extended Circles, or just your Circles. To make your selection just visit Google+ settings on the desktop, or G+ settings on Android. [see attached screenshot]

- You should now see a better list of places when searching for a place to check into on G+ mobile. [original post: http://goo.gl/opvWa]

- You can now edit the names of your photo albums directly inside of Google+. Just go the Photos page, click "Your albums", choose an album, and click on the album title. [original post: http://goo.gl/gaVv8]

- You can now create new circles in-line from the "Add to Circle" menu all across G+ (including profiles, hovercards, and people suggestions in the Stream). [see attached screenshot]

- And… we've created a "What's new in Google+" page that'll help keep track of these features & fixes in the future [what's new page: http://goo.gl/0fcNs]

Keep the feedback coming y'all -- we're listening, and making changes. Enjoy the weekend!

I swear by Feedly browser extension (http://feedly.com/) for my RSS, but Readefine is a pretty, AIR-based, desktop alternative.

Pros: Real pretty, supports Instapaper, use Google Reader account
Cons: Uses Adobe AIR, no support for sending articles to Twitter/email/bookmarks
