Firefox 26 says no to Java plugins
http://memeburn.com/2013/12/firefox-26-says-no-to-java-plugins/

Mozilla’s flagship product Firefox just released it’s latest version, number 26, though it comes with an array of features one stands out, by default it blocks all Java plugins, you have to specifically allow each one. You might not be aware of this if you are not a techie but java plugins are ubiquitous on the net.

Impressive
 
These sculptures are made ENTIRELY from wood
Wooden Illusions

Artist and Professor Tom Eckert uses traditional processes to carve these hyper-realistic sculptures of everyday objects entirely made of wood. He uses plenty of carpentry techniques in his creative sculptured pieces, such as constructing, bending, laminating, carving and painting. 

After receiving his M.F.A. degree from Arizona State University, Eckert began teaching at the university. He has exhibited his work in over 150 national and international exhibitions. Recently his incredible artwork has been featured in the Netherlands after getting lot of appreciation throughout the United States.
