Comments Off on Actress Vanessa Hudgens is under criminal investigation for defacing a natural landmark in Arizona

Nothing says romance like a hiking trip to scenic Arizona with your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day, but one Instagram photo could lead to big trouble for actress Vanessa Hudgens. She posted (and has since deleted) an image of a heart on a red rock , containing the names “Austin + Vanessa.” It might seem like a sweet gesture, but defacing protected national park lands is illegal. Authorities are now trying to locate the scene of the alleged crime, as well as any witnesses who might be able to point fingers at the guilty parties.

The scientists have developed a totally new type of data storage , in the form of glass discs close to the size of a quarter. Data is encoded into tiny nanostructures embedded within the glass, and the team believes their invention could be used to store data for up to 13.8 billion years.

Green valentine idea: express your love with seeds

Comments Off on Green valentine idea: express your love with seeds

We stumbled across a gorgeous valentine gift idea over at the Mother of a Hubbard website: instead of candy, this heart-shaped box is full of seeds! Ideal for avid gardeners or foodies, this gift can be customized to suit anyone’s preferences. To make it, you just need to buy a standard heart-shaped chocolate assortment box, and replace the candies or truffles with organic, heirloom seeds. In the picture above, the gift is filled with seeds ranging from peas and beans to corn, squash , and tomatoes , but you can just as easily fill yours with a variety of of organic culinary herb seeds, or flower seeds that are known to attract butterflies. Just add in a guide that identifies the different seeds, and you have a gift full of love that’ll just keep growing. (Yes, you can eat the chocolates yourself. We won’t tell.) + Mother of a Hubbard Lead image © Mother of a Hubbard Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: box of seeds , gardener , gift idea , heart-shaped box , heart-shaped seed box , heirloom seeds , organic seeds , seed box , seeds , Valentine , valentine gift idea , valentine seeds , Valentine’s , valentine’s day , Valentine’s Day Gift

Love sign made of matches and reclaimed wood sets hearts afire

Comments Off on Love sign made of matches and reclaimed wood sets hearts afire

With Valentine’s Day right around the bend, we thought it was the perfect time to feature artist Pei San Ng ‘s amor-themed matchstick art . Ng arranged approximately 2,500 match sticks with red tips on a base of reclaimed art board and plywood to form the word “Love.” “Love on fire represents romance and passion or destruction and jealousy. It is raw and gritty,” says Ng of the work. You might be tempted to mimic this symbolic piece as a tribute to the person who sets your heart aflame—just be careful not to do it indoors or while wearing polyester clothing! + Pei San Ng Via Recyclart Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: eco art green design , eco design , green art , love sign , match love sign , matches , matchstick love sign , Matchsticks , pei san ng , Reclaimed Materials , recycled love sign , Recycled Materials , sign made of matches , Valentine , valentine’s day
