Comments Off on Banksy’s Upcycled Sphinx Brazenly Stolen from Queens

Is robbery the highest form of flattery? UK street artist Banksy recently completed an upcycled Sphinx sculpture made out of old cinderblocks only to have the piece stolen shortly after by the hired hands of an opportunistic art gallery. According to reports, the statue was dismantled piece by piece and loaded it onto a vehicle right in front of a crowd of Bansky admirers.

Comments Off on DIY: How to Brew Kombucha at Home

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.

Turkey Unveils the World’s First Intercontinental Underwater Rail Tunnel

Comments Off on Turkey Unveils the World’s First Intercontinental Underwater Rail Tunnel

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 Erdo?an, 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.
