Android 5.0 “Key Lime Pie” UI Concepts

Droid-life posts some images of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie UI design – lockscreen and homescreen. I like it a lot more than iOS 7 UI design.

To the distracted drivers of the Web

According to the Cohen’s Children’s Medical Center of New York, texting and driving has just surpassed drunk driving as the leading cause of death in teenagers behind the wheel. Last year, more than 3,000 teens died as a result of sending and receiving SMS messages.

It is quite shocking although not completely surprising to learn that texting and driving has just surpassed drunk driving as the leading cause of death in teenagers behind the wheel. I hope anyone who reads this does not repeat the same mistake. Do the wise thing to put down your phone and concentrate on the road for the safety of yourself and others.

Tight clusters of traditional mud-brick-and-palm houses have stood for centuries in Ghadames, a pre-Roman oasis town in the Sahara. Rooftop walkways allowed women to move freely, concealed from men’s view.

M42: Inside the Orion Nebula

The Great Nebula in Orion, an immense, nearby starbirth region, is probably the most famous of all astronomical nebulas. Here, glowing gas surrounds hot young stars at the edge of an immense interstellar molecular cloud only 1500 light-years away. In the above deep image in assigned colors highlighted by emission in oxygen and hydrogen, wisps and sheets of dust and gas are particularly evident. The Great Nebula in Orion can be found with the unaided eye near the easily identifiable belt of three stars in the popular constellation Orion. In addition to housing a bright open cluster of stars known as the Trapezium, the Orion Nebula contains many stellar nurseries. These nurseries contain much hydrogen gas, hot young stars, proplyds, and stellar jets spewing material at high speeds. Also known as M42, the Orion Nebula spans about 40 light years and is located in the same spiral arm of our Galaxy as the Sun.
