Have you stared deeply into the Cat’s Eye Nebula?

NASA describes the dying star, NGC 6543, in elegant scientific prose. “The Cat’s Eye (NGC 6543) represents a brief, yet glorious, phase in the life of a sun-like star.” The space agency recently posted a sharpened image of the distant planetary nebula, located some 3,000 light-years beyond Earth. These sprawling clouds of dust and gas form when stars similar to our sun reach the end of their lives and “gently eject their outer gaseous layers,” according to NASA and ESA astronomers. The legendary Hubble Space Telescope, now nearly 30 years old, originally captured this image of the planetary nebula.

People are having stress dreams about losing their AirPods

Hope, a 19-year-old college student at the University of Texas, had just walked off a plane from a family vacation when she had a sinking realization: she had left her AirPods onboard. She soon grew desperate. In an effort to get back her beloved earbuds before the plane left for its next destination, she climbed onto the wing. But she was unsuccessful, and the plane took off with her struggling to cling to the wing — still trying to retrieve her AirPods. It was literally a nightmare scenario. “I woke up crying,” she said.  The whole ordeal had been an exceptionally vivid dream. Hope, a design student who asked to be identified by her first name only, says she, like …

Man live-streams suicide on FB, probe underway

New Delhi: A 27-year-old Bengal man, who was living in Delhi as a tenant, live-streamed his suicide on Facebook from his rented apartment in Shahdara on Sunday morning, police said. The incident came to light after the deceased’s friend saw the video on the social media site and dialled immediately to the police.

83 Times People In Wheelchairs Could Not Go Places Due To These Terrible Design Fails

Accessibility is a vitally important feature of any civilized society – everyone, regardless of their mobility, should be able to access and enjoy public facilities. Poorly-designed accessibility for people in wheelchairs, for example, sends a pretty insulting message: “We added this feature because someone told us we had to, but it’s not important enough that we put any effort into making sure it actually helps.” Accessibility then becomes purely symbolic, something designed to show that ‘we care,’ but has no practical purpose. Sadly, people with disabilities encounter this kind of attitude all too often, and beyond the continuous and ongoing campaigns for accessibility rights, there is little left to do but laugh at these outrageous fails collected by Bored Panda. …

How to make sure you’re buying the new Nintendo Switch with improved battery life

Photo by James Bareham / The Verge The new hardware revision of the Nintendo Switch is now making its way to retail stores. It features a newer, more efficient CPU than the original launch console, which results in significantly longer battery life ranging between 4.5 and nine hours. (The original Switch can last between 2.5 and 6.5 hours.) Otherwise, the Nintendo Switch “v2” — not to be confused with the upcoming Switch Lite — hasn’t changed much: it’s got the same design and same screen. That means there’s no easy way to distinguish the new, longer-lasting model from the original unless you know where to look and what to look for. Look at the box The easiest way to spot …

TWICE’s Jeongyeon Stuns With Her New Super Short Hair Cut At The Lotte Family Concert

TWICE‘s Jeongyeon has proved that she slays with any hair length, but short hair is definitely her specialty. She’s sported short hair since debut, only occasionally going for longer locks. Jeongyeon pictured during MV shooting for “Dance The Night Away” Jeongyeon is most comfortable with short hair and usually opts for a neck-length cut with a light brown/blonde color. For the Lotte Family Concert, however, Jeongyeon decided to go for a pitch black bob cut shorter than usual and after seeing the pictures ONCEs forgot how to breathe. This new look says one thing: Jeongyeon did not come to play. Jeongyeon’s duality with this look is also amazing. With her bright smile she turns from fierce vixen who means business into …

The Perseid meteor shower peaks tonight, but the Moon is going to spoil the fun

Photo by Bob Riha Jr. / Getty Images On the evening of August 12th and early on August 13th, the Perseid meteor shower will reach its peak, with streaks of light zooming across the skies up to once every minute or so. Unfortunately, stargazers may have a tough time seeing these shooting stars this year, thanks to the light of our pesky Moon. The Perseid meteor shower occurs every August whenever Earth passes through the tail of a comet called Swift-Tuttle, a big rock about 16 miles (26 kilometers) across that orbits around the Sun. As Swift-Tuttle zooms through space, the Sun heats up the icy comet, causing a bunch of loose material like pebbles and dust to fly off. …

Occupational Hazards?

I've worked a few different design jobs and for the past year I've been in a studio that requires a lot of scrolling up and down. Think multipage layouts, long webpages, and the fact that I love flying through a few sites for inspo whenever I get a spare second. I rarely work with a still screen. Recently I get extremely dizzy at work and have even experienced vertigo while driving. Once I sit still it goes away, but it always comes back whenever I look at my monitors at work. Does anyone else have experience with this or ideas on how to make it stop? submitted by /u/immadinosaur44 [link] [comments] Read more: reddit.com

Tired of binging/5’2 females, how many cals do you eat?

So I had a few years of disordered eating where I restricted very low (think 200-500ish calories) and lost a lot before binging started etc., and I gained most back – now I restrict very low for a few days, then binge again and end up gaining even more. I'm so so sick of this cycle! I really would love to lose this binge weight in a healthy, sustainable way, but I'm short and not too active (1-3 light workouts a week if any) and I remember a summer when I tried reverse dieting and upping my calories slowly every week – as soon as I got to 1400 cals, I had already put on 8lbs. It feels like I …

Gas Turbine System Technician (Electrical) Fireman Matt R. Richardson, left, receives training at the helm aboard the guided-missile destroyer USS Truxtun (DDG 103). | Image: U.S. Navy The US Navy will replace the touchscreen throttle and helm controls currently installed in its destroyers with mechanical ones starting in 2020, says USNI News.

On August 21st, 2017, the USS John S. McCain collided with the Alnic MC, a Liberian oil tanker, off the coast of Singapore.

“New IP initiatives” are in the works at both Activision and Blizzard

Activision-Blizzard’s game lineup is built largely on a small group of big, recognisable series ranging from Warcraft to Call of Duty. Overwatch has been Blizzard’s only new IP in the better part of two decades, and while Activision has published original titles like Destiny and Sekiro in recent years, its internal studios haven’t done much original franchise development, either. That may change, however, as COO Coddy Johnson tells investors during the company’s latest financial earnings call. “New IP initiatives” are in the works at each of the company’s business: Activision, Blizzard, and mobile division King. Exactly what that means remains to be seen, but given the company’s historical reticence to launch new IP, any indication of active development is notable. …
