Stupefying Natural Wonders You Can Find Right Outside your Window

Travel
This chunk of cosmic dust we live on is full of unexplored wonders, if you know where to look! And probably since the earliest days of our civilization, our ancestors and their offsprings tried to understand all these remarkable phenomena. Some worshipped them as deities, others feared them, but pretty much everyone respected those unique and unusual natural wonders. I can even bet you a taco that many of those special places are still hidden to this day. But still, from what we’ve discovered in the last 10,000 years or so, there are plenty of magical places you can visit today. Best part is, these biomes are scattered pretty much all over the globe, so no matter where you are, you’re probably somewhere near one, and all you have to do is go out exploring! Now, let’s see those 19 natural

Title race back on as Jose Mourinho’s Man United defeat Chelsea

Jose Mourinho got the better of former club Chelsea as Manchester United injected life into their top-four hopes - and the Premier League title race. Much was riding on today's Old Trafford encounter, with the battle for Champions League football heating up as Antonio Conte's table-toppers attempt to ward off ever-improving Tottenham. The fixture lived up to the pre-match hype as Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera secured a 2-0 win which gave Mourinho revenge for this season's defeats at Stamford Bridge. The result meant the leaders' cushion over Spurs remained at four points - the same tally that separates the Red Devils from a Champions League berth after this weekend's games. Whatever the gap, this is a timely shot in the arm for the home side as they try to juggle their Euro...

Tony Adams lost his first game in charge of Granada after Celta Vigo claimed a 3-0 win in Sunday's La Liga clash. On-loan Fulham striker Jozabed put the visitors ahead after 22 minutes with a brilliant chip over the advancing Guillermo Ochoa. The match was lacking in quality, but Marcelo Diaz produced a moment of brilliance when he curled a fantastic free-kick over the wall and into the top corner after 73 minutes. Then, just three minutes later, Claude Beauvue was on hand to tap in from close-range, after Theo Bongonda hammered the inside of the post with a stinging drive. Claudio Beauvue scored the third Former Arsenal and England captain Adams was appointed manager on Monday, replacing the sacked Lucas Alcaraz, with Granada 19th in La Liga. Having lost ...

Inside the Mind of Aaron Draplin

Surprise. Poster design by Aaron Draplin for the 75th anniversary of PRINT magazine. That was Aaron Draplin’s reaction when he got the call from HOW—to feature him again. According to the Portland, OR, graphic designer, the story hasn’t changed all that much. And to his point, there’s no lack of Aaron Draplin or Draplin Design Co. coverage on the World Wide Web. So much so, that I felt a bit of trepidation about the interview. What could I unearth that hadn’t been covered before? And why would someone read this story? My trusty go-to list of questions weren’t going to work for me. I didn’t want to write something that’s already been published. And I certainly didn’t want Draplin to roll his eyes during our chat. I realized I needed his help to build a new narrative. So I came

Five Fundamentals of Product Innovation

At the recent Pacific Design & Manufacturing conference, design expert Bryce Rutter identified the DNA of breakthrough products. If designers stick to a user-centered process, they’ll create better and more innovative products, an expert told attendees at the recent Pacific Design & Manufacturing conference. Bryce Rutter, founder and CEO of Metaphase Design Group, Inc. , said that well-designed products – from beer cans to medical instruments to handheld consumer devices – all share the same attributes. “Good products speak to you through more than one sense,” he told an audience of engineers and designers. “They have the right sound, they look fantastic, and when you put them in your hand, they just fit.” Moreover, the operation of well-designed devices shouldn’t be a myste

The best cities for CAD designers include some cities that don’t quickly come to mind when you think product design. urns out Detroit is the best city for job prospects if you’re a CAD designer. In the creative industries, it can be hard to tell what geographic locations offer a decent standard of living as well as good of job prospects. The engineering recruitment firm, Modis, conducted a study that ranked the top cities for CAD designers, placing Detroit first.   Source: Modis   Motown topping the list for CAD designers isn’t too much of a shocker. “Detroit’s success can be directly attributed to the automobile industry,” Matthew Ripaldi, SVP at Modis, told Design News. “This has had a ripple effect on other cities across the state, namely Niles (w

Top 9 Skyscrapers That Push The Limits of Design

Design
Architecture is an amazing thing. The sheer ability to make a building stand out and become a landmark that’s instantly recognized is a much underrated skill to have. And especially in our modern times, architecture has moved forward in huge leaps, pushing the limits of design in every possible way. We build ‘em bigger, taller and more expensive. It’s essentially how cities brag to each other. The buildings that are most thankful to design would be skyscrapers. They single-handedly determine the entire skyline of a city and they’re the most visible building in any area. They also give an added architectural challenge because higher buildings need to be built more aerodynamically et cetera. Also it’s cooler to build a 100 story building than a random “square with triangle on top” house. Le

Animals
Although most people wouldn’t typically associate extreme intelligence with animals, that is a bit of a misconception. While they are obviously not able to match the computational and meta cognitive power of the human brain there are certain things some animals specialize in for which their minds are uniquely adapted. In some ways you could say they are smarter (or more functional) than even humans at performing these tasks. These are the 25 most intelligent animals on Earth.
