Controversial DNA startup wants to let customers create creatures.  What could possibly go wrong?

http://www.sfgate.com/business/article/Controversial-DNA-startup-wants-to-let-customers-5992426.php#photo-7342818
In Austen Heinz’s vision of the future, customers tinker with the genetic codes of plants and animals and even design new creatures on a computer. In a makeshift laboratory in San Francisco, his synthetic biology company uses lasers to create custom DNA for major pharmaceutical companies. With the latest technology and generous funding, a growing number of startups are taking science and medicine to the edge of science fiction. In the works or...

Humbolt Brewing Company

Imperial Stout
11%

Tastes at first reminiscent of black licorice, but settles into a rounded flavor along the front and center of my tongue. Kind of sour in a candy sour way for a long awaited aftertaste.

One of the most poignant and informative Cracked articles I've ever read. 
We spoke with a victim of female-on-male rape to find out what it's like to be the victim of a crime that most of society refuses to acknowledge is even a thing. Spoiler Alert: It's awful.

Chris reedited the live/studio mash up for Trust Me, check it out and tell in what you think! Still planning on this being the single and recording an actual video, but still working on that at the moment.
 
Trust Me, take 2

Re-edited the studio-version-plus-live-performance-footage video for Trust Me from our debut record, EP1, to more closely sync the audio with the video.

Much happier with this result. Please do let us know what you think (and don't forget to thumbs up/subscribe if you like it)!

 You can listen to or purchase EP1 from the Google Play store at http://goo.gl/2Jc5wy (iTunes and other releases still upcoming).

If you check it out, be sure to leave a review or a star rating on the store page!

Nafeez Ahmed: How corporations and spy agencies use "security" to defend profiteering and crush activism

A couple friends of mine worked there so I checked them out a couple years ago to find it is probably the best hole in the wall Thai you can find in GR, and I mean that in a good way. Just went to Erb Thai yesterday and was COMPLETELY disappointed, while Googling around for other Thai places, this popped up and I remembered how amazing it was. Want to leave a review because I love their food the few times I've had it and I need to go back for more. The place is small, but very clean and the food is very tasty. I do remember them having styrofoam, something I dislike, but I cannot comment if they still use it or not, or if they offer something else for take home or takeout. Either way, I finished my meal each time I was there so it wasn't anything I had to worry about.

First I'll mention the good things. The food was flavorful, tasty, and spicy. I ordered the medium plus spice level (1tbsp) in the pineapple curry with scallops. Girlfriend ordered a peanut sauce rice dish with medium spice (1tsp). We also ordered the "crab cheese" (crab rangoons), which is where my disappointment began. Now while the food was very tasty, I was very unhappy with the consistency, the service, and the take home box. First and foremost, the crab cheese was very inconsistent because only two of them had an okay amount of filling (all four of them could have been more full of crab cheese filling), and when I brought this up to one of the two servers I got the response, "I watched them make it, they put a spoonful of filling in them, it's probably in the sides." This appalled me because I am the customer and I was the one who ate the food, I should know about what was in it. Word of advice: if they're not called crab rangoons, don't order them. In addition to the server not hearing my complaint, the crab cheese was also not crispy enough. Frankly, for getting 4 crab rangoons for 3.50 or something was VERY disappointing and I will never purchase them here again, that is if I even go there again. Now for my meal, it was very good, but again, the consistency was lacking. I only had two pieces of pineapple in my dish along with a cold half ring next to the fried rice. The cold half ring helped cool the spice level, but I was very disappointed that ordering a 'pineapple curry fried rice' only netted me two pieces of pineapple in the actual dish. There were enough scallops in the dish, but the lack of pineapple really got to me and I found my self more and more disappointed as I picked through the food looking for possible pineapple chunks. Then when I asked for a take home box I got a small styrofoam container for my food which upset me as I do not support businesses who do not use acceptable take home boxes like typical Chinese food boxes or something that wasn't styrofoam, which we all know is terrible for the environment and unhealthy for humans to consume (something that is inevitable when you put hot items against the styrofoam surface causing it to melt particles into your food). My girlfriend was very satisfied with her dish, though she had a craving for a peanut sauce Asian dish, so there's no way she could have been upset. Overall, the tasty food did not make up for the poor customer service when I had a complaint about the food I ordered. Couple that with the inconsistency and I choose to leave this review online to express my dissatisfaction and desire to find better thai restaurants in Grand Rapids instead of Erb Thai.

I first went to Moe's a long time ago and while I enjoyed the experience, it was only until recently that I returned. Seeing the place as a competitor to Qdoba, I decided to see how they'd handle my usual Qdoba order: a steak/pork quesadilla with some veggies added. While I enjoyed my order differently than Qdoba's, what fascinated me was their deliciously warm white queso cheese to dip chips in, so much so that all I ordered next time I was there was simply chips and cheese to have a snack on my dinner break. This time however, I was waiting in the lunch rush line with my mother and had time to thoroughly peruse their menu to discover that they make a Crunchwrap! Now obviously it is not a crunchwrap, but I've made these at home, and they weren't even half as good as Moe's Stackers! I had tofu with guac, white queso, corn pico, caramelized onions, and black beans. Overall, I am quite satisfied, and if I had eaten more than I did the previous day I may have saved half, which I would suggest you do as well! This food would be easily heated up by microwave or oven or pan at a future time. Moe's is to Qdoba what Subway is to Jimmy John's, but without all the bad rap. If you want to check out their mission statement and company concepts, check out the wheel on the wall behind the workers while you're waiting in line. And while I mention their competition with Qdoba, it is interesting to note that at Qdoba I don't get the cheese unless there are more than a few people to eat it and I usually spend $9, whereas at Moe's I've been spending nearly $12 because I always return for more queso! But if you make a good product, then what's not to love? My wallet sure loves money but sometimes I have to put him in his place - back in my back pocket. Okay that was terrible, but enjoy the food it is amazing!

While driving to my band's cookout yesterday, we spotted numerous Asian cuisine restaurants along the way, Bamboo among them. Today, the girlfriend and I decided to retake that route and we ended up at Bamboo. Upon walking in, you'll find a quaint little restaurant with nice atmosphere and wonderful workers willing to help you customize your food in any way you'd like. We first ordered drinks, a Thai iced coffee (tasted like a coffee stout beer!) and a Thai iced tea (flowery tasting tea with some sort of fruit juice mixed in I think) and for an appetizer, we tried the spring rolls ($3.25) and ordered a pork egg roll too ($1.25/ea). The spring rolls were unexpectedly served cold with tasty greens, shrimp, and pork along with a tasty peanut sauce. They were not only amazing, but my girlfriend couldn't get enough of the tasty peanut sauce. Then our food came - Pad Thai w/ tofu ($8.95 if I remember correctly) and a curry dish, the green one ($8.95 +$2 for shrimp). The Pad Thai looked amazing served with a crepe-like egg wanton around the edges. My dish, the curry with shrimp served soup-like in a bowl, came with green beans, snow peas, bamboo shoots, and rice, which was served in a separate bowl that I quickly added to the soup like curry dish to soak up the liquid. Both dishes were not only amazing, but for the amount of food on the plate they were excellently priced! We both brought home leftovers that I can't wait to dig into later. I highly recommend this beautiful little place if you're looking for some authentic Vietnamese or Thai cuisine. We will definitely be going back!

One of the better cafes downtown, it sits right next to Madcap Coffee and I highly recommend Local Mocha over it's neighbor. They not only have various kinds of coffee drinks, including soy options, but also serve food including breakfast and lunch sandwiches that are delicious! If you have a sweet tooth, try their homemade caramel or homemade chocolate. It'll leave you wanting more, making sure you make return trips to say hi to the owners and their kids.

Dual Brewery/Cafe with a nice atmosphere (visited late Sunday afternoon) and rather good beer. Had Czar Carr Russian Imperial Stout, 12.7% Drinks similarly to Founder's Breakfast Stout, but heavier and exactly like a Russian Imperial Stout should taste. Excellent brew. Grilfriend had the Hippie Wheat, 5.2% Nice floral smell of hops and wheat with a slight spice as you drink it.
