Bad news for Milan Expo 2015 as reports show pavilion construction incomplete

by , 04/20/15
filed under: Architecture, News

Milan Expo 2015, 2015 Milan Expo, Wolfgang Buttress, Milan Expo construction incomplete, world expo 2015 incomplete, milan expo pavilions, feeding the planet energy for life

The upcoming Milan Expo has been hit by yet another scandal, this time from reports that some of the Expo buildings will not be completed in time for the May 1 opening. The bad news follows a string of controversies including allegations of corruption and Expo masterplanner Jacques Herzog’s criticism of the event as a “vanity fair.” Although the Expo is slated to open on schedule, Italy Chronicles and Dezeen report that the buildings still under construction will not undergo standard safety inspections and a nearly €3 million separate contract has been awarded to hide ongoing construction with temporary screens—a hefty sum that adds to the €1.3 billion the Italian government has already invested into the Expo.

The Continuum is a luminous artwork that plays with the concepts of light and form. This beautifully-shaped object, made by Japanese design collective Kappes, creates an ethereal light animated by the movement of small wires placed at its core. The design was featured recently at the Salone Satellite at Milan Design Week, an exhibition where emerging young designers gather to collaborate and share their innovative ideas..

William Shatner proposes $30 billion Kickstarter-funded pipeline to solve California's water woes

by , 04/20/15

William Shatner has been many things over the course of his career—actor, author, activist, horse-breeder, and car insurance spokesperson, to name just a few—but his latest area of concern is somewhat of a head-scratcher. In an interview with Yahoo Tech’s David Pogue, Shatner gave him quite the scoop, announcing that: “I’m starting a Kickstarter campaign. I want $30 billion… to build a pipeline… Say, from Seattle. A place where there’s a lot of water. There’s too much water,” down to California to address the drought. And judging by the video, Shatner looks entirely serious.

NASA satellite captures rainbow-hued Saharan dunes at sunset

If you didn’t know better, you might think the above is an image of water rippling over a colorful lake bottom, or an abstract painting of sorts. The reality is that this is an image of the Earth – specifically a sunset over an area of the Sahara Desert – as captured by NASA’s Landsat 7 satellite. It shows ‘ribbons’ of sand and patterns of stripes from linear dunes in the uninhabited Erg Chech region of southwestern Algeria.

Meet Hydaway: the water bottle that folds down to fit in your pocket

Hydaway Bottle

Reusable water bottles can take up a lot of space, but Hydaway folds down to just over an inch, so it can fit in a pocket, wallet, backpack, or just about anywhere. These food-grade silicone and BPA-free plastic collapsible bottles are dishwasher safe, and can be filled up with fresh water for drinking on the go. Hydaway’s creators have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund its production, and reached their funding goal in the first day! Production has already begun, and if they manage to raise $70,000 by midnight on Earth Day, April 22nd 2015, they will donate 1 percent of their total fundraising goal to One Percent for the Planet! They’re at nearly $58,000 right now, so you can help them reach their goal, and in turn, help the entire planet.

Could this new material make it possible to clean up oil spills with a net?

nanotechnology mesh cloth, oil and water mesh cloth, oil and water separation, oil separation cloth, cloth collects oil, clean oil spill, oil spills, oil spill clean-up

This piece of steel mesh doesn’t look like much but it might be one of the only things that can separate oil from water. The mesh allows water to go through, but it causes oil to float on top, thanks to an oil-repelling coating on the surface. Researchers mixed water and oil together and then poured the mixture (well, as well as it could be mixed) through the material. The oil was collected on the top of the material and could then be collected in a beaker separately from the water. This type of coating is under development at Ohio State University and is part of a suite of nature inspired nanotechnologies according to Phys.org. This discovery could eventually lead to great strides in the clean-up techniques of oil spills, which endanger wildlife and the environment on a near daily basis.
