The Bangladeshi government wants every household in the nation to be solar powered by 2021. In the race to become the “first solar nation,” they hope to achieve this goal by focusing on what they call solar home systems (SHS). Solar home systems are provided by the government to homes that do not have access to the main power grid, thus supplying power where there previously was none.

In 2001 the hipsters of Portland planted the seed for a fascination with PBR that quickly spread nation-wide. So what state could be better qualified to provide us with a beer made from actual human urine?

Winters for the homeless can be an incredibly difficult time, so Carnegie Mellon University challenged its students to create temporary, economically viable shelters for people living on the streets.

The ambitious idea to link Europe and Asia via a sea tunnel was first conceived in 1860 by a sultan of the Ottoman Empire, but Abdoul Medjid lacked the technology and funds to turn the idea into reality. In 2004, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who was then mayor of Istanbul, revived the plan along with other excessive ideas such as a third airport, a parallel canal and a third bridge. These ambitious projects, which locals blame for the destruction of green spaces and the loss of homes, helped to fuel mass anti-government protests across the country earlier this year.

The first time I heard about kombucha was when a friend of mine sent me a picture of a strange, somewhat bubbly liquid that had a slimy film on top of it. I asked if she was planning to put any of that in her mouth, and she reassured me that it wasn’t just delicious, it was loaded with health benefits. It took months before I was prepared to try it, but it turns out that it really is quite fabulous, and it’s also easy to make at home—you need just a few simple ingredients, and enough patience to let things ferment for a couple of weeks.

The U.S. Senate voted 62-36 in favor of the highly-contested Keystone XL pipeline on Thursday (1/29), with nine Democrats joining Republicans to show support for the $8 billion project that would transport 830,000 barrels of oil per day from Canada’s Tar Sands to the Gulf Coast. Following the vote, the Obama administration reiterated their stance that they will veto any bill that looks to expedite approval for Keystone XL, instead opting to wait for U.S. State Department to complete its investigation as to whether or not the pipeline is in national interests.
