Death Valley National Park

Death Valley National Park is located in Eastern California. During the summer it is one of the hottest places on Earth where the highest recorded temperature of it reached 54.4°C or 130F.

However, whenever the hottest temperature gets updated a historical artifact claiming that the hottest temperature it reached is actually 57°C or 134F. This was assessed and is claimed as an observer error.

Stashed ideas

3 IDEAS

Hacked: A History

Around 1200 A.D., the word ‘hack’ appeared in the English language, meaning to ‘cut with heavy blows in a random, irregular manner’.

It’s technological transformation happened in 1955 at M.I.T., in the minutes of a technology club meeting. It loosely meant working on a tech problem in a different, creative way which is not written in any instruction manual.

Digital Mirrors

As more and more interaction goes online due to work being increasingly remote, we find that we are staring at our digital selves on the laptop or smartphone screen more often than usual. Social scientists are looking at the long-term effects of being connected via screens in our homes, isolated from real people.

If we like ourselves, we would find pleasure in being on video calls, but if we are self-critical, the same negative feelings would be amplified. The screens act like digital mirrors, showing us more of what we believe in.

Befriending yourself

From a young age, we learn how to be a good friend to others. We learn how to share and to treat others how we want to be treated.

Yet, many of us don't receive guidance on how to treat ourselves with kindness. We might even believe that being kind towards ourselves is self-indulgent or weak.

How planes fly

Planes can fly quite easily without engines, as gliders (planes without engines), paper planes, and gliding birds show us.

A plane's engine is designed to move the plane forward at high speed. The wings move a plane upward. At high speed, the air flows fast over the wings and throws the air down toward the ground, generating an upward force, or lift. The upward force overcomes the plane's weight and keeps it in the sky.
