Crowd-funding site Kickstarter hacked Officials won't say how many accounts were hacked
Kickstarter Changed The Rules Of The Game - Although Kickstarter is probably the best online crowdsourcing site for artistic as well as tech projects, the website has been criticized for not being able to sustain the quality of the projects. For instance, in the past some projects haven't been delivered on time and Kickstarter didn't do anything about them. Now the company has posted a new blog post, enumerating new rules for project creators. [Click on Image Or Source on Top to See Full News]

Split-face portraits: 2 halves of the faces of 2 relatives combined into one portrait

Split Family Faces - My Modern Metropolis. Photography series explores facial similarities between family members.
Canada-based photographer and graphic designer Ulric Collette came up with probably the coolest family photo shoot idea ever. While doing “an image a day” type of project Urlic tried to age his son in Photoshop an accidentally ended up creating his first genetic portrait (the first picture on our list). It was made by splicing together photographs of himself and his son. Urlic calls his on-going series ‘Genetic Portraits’ and sees a lot of potential and other ideas related to genetics. Interestingly enough, the new combined faces of relatives look quite normal or at least are not far from it. However, the best part is that you can try it yourself! In case your face doesn’t match with your family members, you might also consider experimenting with your neighbors.
Amazing photographic art by photographer Ulric Collette. Blending images together to create amazing images, showing similarities between family members.

MARTIAN EMBASSY - The concept is to awaken creativity in kids, so the design acts as a trigger, firing up the engines of imagination. It’s an intergalactic journey - from the embassy, at the street entrance, to the shop full of red planet traveller essentials, to the classroom. By the time kids reach the writing classes they have forgotten they are in “school”.

Another awesome animal: Shrek the Sheep from New Zealand- Hid in a cave for 6 years. When found had 60 pounds of wool on its body.
Ever hear of Shrek the Sheep? Shrek was a Merino male ( a wether) in New Zealand who evaded shearers for 6 years. After he was finally caught and shorn, his 60-pound fleece contained enough wool to make suits for 20 men (the average fleece is about 10 pounds). He lived his days in peace and fame, finally passing last year. Let's here it for Shrek the Sheep!
Shrek the sheep ran away and hid in a cave in New Zealand for 6 years. When Shrek was finally found in 2004, the sheep had gone unsheared for so long that it had accumulated 60 pounds of wool on it's body, enough to make suits! The sheep became famous and even got to meet the Prime Minister. Shrek finally passed away last month at the age of 16.

* Christopher Columbus reported seeing three mermaids in the ocean off of Haiti in January of 1493. He reported that they “came quite high out of the water”, but were “not as pretty as they are depicted, for somehow in the face they look like men.”

The Guàmǎtóu (挂马头) is a ghostly spectre that looks like a horse's head, dangling from a tree by a human hand. Described in old Chinese anomaly tales (誌怪, Zhìguài), their presence often signals an unburied human corpse nearby.
