A 137-Mile ‘Cycling Utopia’ Floating Above London’s Rail Lines
Bicycles, Architects, Propo, Paths, Bike, London, Cycling, Norman Foster, Architecture
Architect and cycling enthusiast Sir Norman Foster just unveiled plans for the SkyCycle, a “cycle utopia” that soars up and above the congested streets of London. The three-story high bicycle highway is envisioned to cover 135 miles routed above the city’s existing rail lines. The sky-high scheme was created as a response to growing concerns over bicycle safety and the mounting physical constraints of adding on-the-ground segregated bike paths.
With the worsening condition of London traffic, Foster + Partners, Exterior Architecture and Space Syntax have proposed a $12 billion solution: the SkyCycle. The bike path, designed to follow existing railway lines, would be the city's first #infrastructure project for bicycle commuters, and according to the #designers, would serve 6 million people who live within the bike's network area and up to 12,000 cyclists per hour, per route.

A British soldier with his sniper rifle, onboard a Merlin helicopter on route to Camp Shawquat, Nad-e Ali, Afghanistan in 2010.British snipers fulfil a vital and enduring role on the battlefield, in terms of intelligence-gathering, target identification and eliminating high-value targets. The L115A3 rifle, part of the Sniper System Improvement Programme is a large-calibre weapon which provides state-of-the-art telescopic day and night all-weather sights,increasing a sniper's effective range.
How the war started in "How I Live Now"- interesting "basically waited for most of the British Army to be lured into crises on the other side of the world and then waltzed in and cut off all the transportation and communications and stuff so basically they were DEFENDING Britain against its own returning armed forces rather than attacking it.” Excerpt From: Rosoff, Meg. “How I Live Now.”

Mountain hobbit home
A home tucked in the mountains. If you're in Switzerland and looking for a nice place to stay, Villa Vals might just be your thing. The holiday house is created by Bjarne Mastenbroek and Christian Müller, respectively of architectural offices SeARCH and CMA. To avoid disturbing nature the villa is totally integrated into the landscape and only the entrance is visible. For the interior the duo decided upon traditional contemporary Dutch design, creating a natural, serene environment. #switzerland

Propellerhead's music app Figure
Figure (iPhone, $0.99) Music App Is Awesome, Easy to Use and Cheap. It’s looks great and is incredibly easy to use — a novice with no music experience will have a beat pumping out of the speakers within 10 seconds. Those with a bit more knowledge, however, will find the app surprisingly deep — you can tweak around with the pitch, filter, waveform, distortion and other effects, adjust the key you’re in, and even add a bit of shuffle.

Act of Valor (3.5 stars) I enjoyed the action sequences and the tone of this movie. The effects are well done. That being said, I couldn't give it a higher grade because the acting is terrible. I know these guys are Navy SEALS and not actors, but it affected the overall flow of the movie.
Act of Valor (2012) AMAZING movie!!! See it if you haven't!!!
