Proposed for construction in downtown Jakarta, Peruri 88 is designed to accommodate Jakarta’s high population density. Resembling ten vertically stacked blocks, the 88-storey complex will house retail, office and residential space as well as a luxury hotel, wellness centers, parking structures, a mosque, wedding venue, IMAX theater, an outdoor amphitheater and sky gardens aplenty.
This is an age of hate. Of cynicism, mediocrity, irony, despair, anger. Of smallness and cruelty.
The hate is everywhere. TV, Internet, talking heads. It seeps through the digits our lives have been reduced to.
It is hard to love in an age of hate. Love is the miracle that kills the serpent;…
Spire goes beyond tracking moments of movement to provide feedback when you’re at work, home, and in life. Spire helps you cultivate focus and balance during your day.
Stress is typically thought of as having negative health consequences, but it can be difficult to know when or why we become stressed. While tools such as the handheldPIP sensor have previously aimed to let users know when they should relax, Spire is a wearable device that continuously tracks users’ respiration and other metrics, letting them know when they need to take a deep breath.
According to the creators, stress raises tension and causes shallow breathing that can stop oxygen being delivered effectively to the brain and heart. Taking time out to focus on breathing can ease the pressure of stress, but it’s easy to forget. Spire is a device that clips onto any clothes and uses its array of sensors to track respiration rate as well as breathing patterns throughout the day to create a picture of the users’ wellbeing. It also tracks differences in physical activity, such as running, walking, standing, sitting and lying down. Connecting to owners’ smartphones via Bluetooth, the device provides alerts when breathing becomes shallow, as well as advice such as ‘take 10 deep breaths’. Monitoring behavior over both the short and long term, Spire enables users to keep their stress in check and lead a more balanced lifestyle.
The meat industry contributes almost one-fifth of all greenhouse gases, takes up vast quantities of land, resources and energy, and relies on techniques that contribute to animal cruelty. Not only this, but demand for meat is set to increase with global population rises and higher incomes in developing countries, which could create problems for world food security. The recent unveiling of the world’s first lab-grown beefburger is testament to the efforts scientists are taking to ween consumers off of farmed animal produce, and now Six Foods has created a brand of chips made from crickets that could make insect meat palatable for the western world.
The brainchild of three Harvard graduates — Laura D’Asaro, Rose Wang and Meryl Natow — the startup’s first product is Chirps, a gluten-free, natural, low fat chip. Instead of the usual potato or corn, Chirps are created from a mix of ground beans, rice and cricket powder that’s baked rather than fried. The result is a bag of chips that contains 7g of protein — more than an egg. This comes from the fact that 200 calories of cricket meat provides 31g of protein, compared to 22g in beef. Additionally, it requires 1/2000th of the amount of water to farm, and 100 times less greenhouse gas is emitted.
Insects are for the most part absent from western diets, but around 2 billion of the rest of the world population enjoy them as a delicacy. By packaging them as chips in three flavors — Sea Salt, Hickory BBQ and Aged Cheddar — Six Foods could help replace their meat consumption with a more efficient and environmentally-friendly method to get their protein. The company is currently taking pre-orders for its first batch, priced at USD 15.99 for three 5oz bags. Are there other ways to give sustainable insect meat a bigger part in the western diet?
It’s hard to explain to regular people how much technology barely works, how much the infrastructure of our lives is held together by the IT equivalent of baling wire.
Computers, and computing, are broken.
They meet in person and do nothing but sit in silence and breathe and hold hands. They close their eyes and touch one another’s faces. They feed one another, hands to one another’s mouths. They refuse to create avatars. They fetishise flesh.
The film depicts a dystopian version of Tokyo in the year 2019, with cyberpunk tones.

The 1% price increase is just a catchy tagline – simple, popular and irrelevant. Effective pricing starts with segmentation and targeting and not dialing knobs. 1% price increase may be relevant to businesses that already have the right segmentation and versioning but not when the marketing and pricing strategy are wrong.
Smart machines probably won’t kill us all—but they’ll definitely take our jobs, and sooner than you think.

… this theory called Stochastic Probability theory – It means that the outcome of an event cannot be determined as future events are randomly decided. In simple terms you cannot predict the future and a good example is stock market and currency exchange rate fluctuation.
Coming back to our life scenario, anyone would laugh if they are told that future events are unpredictable. Thats obvious they would say.
