Mickey Mouse magic

first_imgKicking off the Unreal Cake Campaign for 2011 is Disney, which has developed a cake technology so clever that it will no doubt prompt your photo cake printer to wave the flag and commit digital suicide. Disney was recently awarded a patent for interactive cakes using small pico projectors. Or to give you the full mouthful: “Projector Systems and Methods For Producing Digitally Augmented, Interactive Cakes and Other Food Products”.While the system would be able to project images on to the surface, it would also detect the topography of the cake. For example, each slice cut out could develop a story; if there’s a simulated lake image projected onto the cake, slicing into it would create a waterfall of projected water flowing down the missing section. Props could also be programmed to trigger projections, such as if Aladdin’s lamp were to be rubbed, a genie could be projected coming out. Or waving a wand might make Tinkerbell appear. Cute.It might be Stop the Week’s sick penchant for horror cakes, but we’re already thinking of some of some gruesome applications for a Halloween cake, where you literally stick the knife in.last_img read more

Twilight on the Trail

first_imgI’m done for the day. The office has worn me down sufficiently for one nine-hour period. My head hurts from squinting at the computer screen, my body feels heavy from inactivity, and my back scolds me for sitting for so long.As I burst out of the door and into the evening sunshine and spring breeze, I spread my arms wide to soak as much of it in as possible. Every bit of radiation, every fresh, unfiltered oxygen molecule that passes over my skin… I thank it for waiting for me, and apologize for neglecting it all day from my fluorescent-lit cell. As I stroll towards my car, my bike smiles at me and quietly says, “I’m ready. Are you?”The grind. The man. The rat race. They have a way of sapping your energy and getting you down, but there is no better cure for that than pedaling into the woods and playing games with physics and nature. Time accelerates, and the duration of four favorite songs, played at excessive volume, finds me at the trailhead.As I downshift and begin pedaling up the hill to start my loop, all angst and negativity from the day has evaporated. Those same oxygen molecules now flow into my lungs, through my heart, and then on to the atrophied limbs that are screaming with joy for the exercise. Even brutal exertion feels more like a gift than a punishment on a day like today.I reach the summit after a 45-minute climb, take a sip of water, and stare out at the sunset and back at civilization. This is what I was put on Earth to do. That other thing…I only do that to allow me to experience places like this. My boss couldn’t track me down in a million years out here.Seat down, knee pads on, and I’m in reaction mode. The world around me turns to a blur as I focus on a descent that is very familiar, yet still remains one of my all-time favorites. Conditions are perfect. The recent rain has made the dirt beautiful and tacky, and I giggle as I put my foot out and drift around an off-camber corner. There is something very liberating about laughing out loud in spite of the fact that no one can hear you.Riding my bike is a humbling experience. Every corner, root, and jump is a puzzle that I can only partially solve. No human being has ever had a perfect run on any trail. There is always room for improvement and learning, and that is part of what keeps drawing me back for more.What is work? The events of the day until this point are nonexistent as my bike dances underneath me. New life is emerging all around as the grip of winter releases, and I travel alone at dusk in my place of sanctuary. I used to try to explain this feeling to non-riders. I have given up. The scope of human communication cannot accurately depict the feelings that it brings to me, nor can it describe the sense of satisfaction afterwards. As I dance with my partner in crime down the mountainside, it truly feels like a part of me.I triple over three roots, rail a corner, and shift my weight back as my suspension soaks up a rock garden. In the blink of an eye, my front tire hits a wet rock and swaps out. It’s scary how quickly crashes occur on a mountain bike, I’ve never experienced anything quite like it. Before I know what is happening, I have somehow wrapped my right leg all the way into the frame, and the bike and I are an intermingled heap as we accelerate towards the unforgiving ground.I see stars. My upper leg is crushed in a vice that the bike has somehow created. The pain is beyond anything that I have ever experienced. I tumble to a stop, and involuntarily scream in agony to the empty woods. My mind is racing to make sense of the situation; it all just happened so fast. As if on cue, a cold breeze hits my sweat-drenched neck to signal the onset of night.I lie back in the ferns and close my eyes. The pain is still unbearable, and my mind races to assess the situation. Who did I tell that I was coming out here? Nobody. Did I see anyone at the pull-off or on the trail? No. How long will it be before anyone knows I am gone? It’s five miles of singletrack to the nearest form of civilization.My leg is still throbbing in pain and beginning to turn the dark hue of a deep tissue bruise, but I did not feel or hear the horrible snap of a broken bone. Ten minutes of counting my blessings and gathering my thoughts on the forest floor, and I am back on my bike slowly rolling downhill.I exit the trail and turn onto the uphill fire road that will reunite me with my vehicle. The last hint of daylight is fading from the sky, and the warmth is quickly following suit. In spite of the shot of pain that accompanies every other pedal crank, the work keeps me warm.Sometimes, the knowledge of how something could have transpired is just as powerful as the actual events would have been. As I limp my bike up to the roof rack on my car, I do so with a dire awareness of what could have happened, and the peculiar feeling that I have some things yet to do in this life.In spite of the pressures that the world places on me, it is time to create a vocation for myself, rather than just a paycheck.  My time on this earth is too short to do something that is not fulfilling.My parents had it right when they repeated to me, “Never confuse having a career with having a life.”last_img read more

Parolee Set Fire to Patchogue Reservist’s Home, DA Says

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Harry Fleischmann Jr.A Patchogue parolee is accused of ransacking and burning down the home of an Air National Guard reservist serving overseas, Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota said Tuesday.Harry Fleischmann Jr., 33, will be arraigned Tuesday on charges of burglarizing and burning down the home of Air National Guard Reservist Eric Carver on Dec. 27.Carver, who is also a New York State Trooper, is currently on active duty serving in Africa, officials said.Fleischmann, a convicted burglar on parole, “ransacked the victim’s house in the Swan Lake development in East Patchogue and stole Trooper Carver’s SUV, off-duty handgun, holster, some ammunition and a generator that Fleischmann found in a backyard shed,” Spota said, adding that his criminal history dates back to 1996.“He also found gasoline in the shed and poured the gas on a stairway leading from the rear door of the house to the main floor, tossing a match into the doorway,” he added.The blaze destroyed Carver’s rear door, melted the siding and destroyed his living room and kitchen, the district attorney said.The Suffolk County Police Pattern Crimes Unit arrested Fleischmann on Jan. 16, authorities said. Detectives also linked him to several commercial burglaries dating back to last year at gas stations in East Patchogue, Brookhaven, Islandia, and Rocky Point, and burglaries of a Medford car wash and a Bayport liquor store, officials said.“The thought that somebody came in here and did that was very scary,” said Debbie Roach of Swan Lake Civic Association whose group raised more than $20,000 to help Carver get back on his feet when he returns.The fundraiser was the brainchild of her 10-year-old son who gathered his Christmas money and bought bracelets that the civic association later sold for the fundraiser.When Roach first heard that someone was indicted for setting the blaze she felt “joy” and “relief,” she said.“It was a very scary thing,” Roach said of the break-in and fire, “we didn’t know if it was anyone” from the community.last_img read more

Liverpool pay respects at memorial

first_img Current manager Brendan Rodgers will give a reading, as will Everton boss Roberto Martinez. It is an emotional week for Liverpool, and a number of tributes were also held prior to Sunday’s game against Manchester City. Captain Steven Gerrard, whose 10-year-old cousin Jon-Paul Gilhooley was the youngest of the 96 victims, was in tears after his side’s 3-2 win over one of their main title rivals. Gerrard said: “The reason I was so emotional was because of when this game fell. “It wasn’t just because it was a big match in our season, it was because this week is always about more than football for everyone associated with Liverpool. It’s emotional for so many people. “I’m speaking on behalf of everyone when I say the win was dedicated to the victims and families of Hillsborough. “All the squad will be present at the service to pay our respects as we should.” During the service, the number ’96’ will be laid out on the pitch in large figures made up of scarves donated by fans of all clubs and from various sporting institutions. Liverpool’s players will be in attendance as Anfield hosts the annual memorial service for the victims of the Hillsborough disaster. Press Association Kenny Dalglish, manager at the time of the disaster, assisted in this initiative by writing to all 92 League clubs as well as the English, Northern Irish, Scottish and Welsh national teams for support. The inspiration for the idea came from the ‘mile of scarves’ formed between Anfield and Goodison Park a week after the disaster in commemoration in 1989. More than 4,000 scarves were tied together. The scarves will be donated to local good causes, including homeless charities, after the service by the Liverpool FC Foundation. Next week, a celebration of the lives of the 96 victims is planned with a charity match in support of the Hillsborough Family Support Group. A team of UK and Irish Liverpool legends, managed by Dalglish, will take on a side of international Reds greats, under the charge of Gerard Houllier. The commemorations come a fortnight after fresh inquests into the deaths of the 96 victims opened in Warrington. Tuesday marks the 25th anniversary of when 96 Liverpool supporters were killed at the Reds’ FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest in Sheffield. The whole Liverpool squad will be present along with directors, other staff and a number of former players and managers. last_img read more

Football: No. 9 Wisconsin projected as heavy favorite against struggling Georgia State

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin football team is expected to discard Georgia State at Camp Randall Stadium Saturday like a can of Natural Light in a freshman dorm room.The No. 9 Badgers (2-0) are favored over the Panthers (0-2) by 35.5 points and have a 98.4 percent chance of winning, according to ESPN.UW released an extensive injury report on Thursday, revealing that the team will have to limp through Saturday’s contest, though it may not seem that way when the clock hits quadruple zeros.Senior running back Corey Clement is listed as questionable, and starting left guard redshirt freshman Jon Dietzen is out. Dietzen’s leg injury caused him to leave last week’s win over Akron early. Clement was limited in practice this week, playing in just the first half after a Zips defender tackle forced him to re-tape both of ankles on the bench.Football: Third-down success on both sides of ball key for No. 9 Wisconsin moving forwardIt’s no secret that third down is the most important down in football. Usually, the team that converts the majority Read…If Clement is not available, he will miss an opportunity to go up against one of the worst run defenses in the country. The Panthers have allowed an average of 394.5 points per game (ranking 128th in the country) on the ground through their first two games this season.The defense also concedes an average of 5.8 yards per carry.“I thought that we were horrible,” Georgia State’s fifth-year head coach Trent Miles said on a conference call with reporters this week. “I didn’t think we played well. We didn’t play good football, [including the] fundamentals and basics of blocking and tackling and kicking and throwing and catching. We’ve got to fix that if we want to be a competitive football team.”On the defensive side of the ball for the Badgers, the Wisconsin secondary continues to take hits. After learning that UW would lose Natrell Jamerson for four to six weeks Sunday, it appeared as though true freshman Caesar Williams could see some reps at the third corner spot. That won’t happen as he will be out Saturday. Expect junior Lubern Figaro or redshirt freshman Titus Booker to take his first meaningful snaps in Jamerson’s place.True freshman wide receiver A.J. Taylor will return kicks for the Badgers Saturday, even after head coach Paul Chryst said earlier in the week that Clement was a “viable option” for the task. Clement was listed above Taylor at the kick returner spot on the team’s depth chart released Monday.The Badger secondary’s biggest challenge Saturday, other than finding a suitable replacement for Jamerson, will be stopping Georgia State receiver Robert Davis. Davis ranks eighth among FBS active leaders in receiving yards (2,563) and 13 in receptions (166).Also out for Saturday’s game are freshman defensive lineman Billy Hirschfield (leg), fifth-year senior wide receiver Reggie Love (infection) and redshirt freshman linebacker Nick Thomas (leg).Georgia State is in just its fifth-year as a Division I FBS program. The Panthers managed only two wins in their first three years of existence but broke out last year with a (6-7) record to earn Miles the Sun Belt Coach of the Year honors along with an appearance in the Cure Bowl.Game information (TV, radio, time)When: 11 a.m.Where: Camp Randall Stadium.

Gentle Clowns to face off against unintentionally satirical pamphlet waivers Saturday

first_imgIt was lopsided from the very beginning.Who would have thought, that in a battle between The Badger Herald — the independent bastion of freedom and journalism in Madison — and the dAiLy CaRdInAl, the University of Wisconsin State Run Media, it would all come down to something as simple as the Weather app?For those unfamiliar, the Weather app is able to use groundbreaking technology — synthesizing the power of the cellphone, the internet and years of meteorological data — to predict the weather. It was the Gentle Clowns’ familiarity with this apparatus and an unconfirmed hot tip from Al Roker, that allowed the Herald to demand that the softball game be postponed from last weekend.This seemed to not sit well with the staff over in the cramped, poorly lit (one would assume that an inability to properly read content is the only explanation for their weekly bowel-movement-in-newspaper-form disservice to the university) office down in the ugly undercarriage of Vilas.They bleated and crowed. They warbled out something about a “brouhaha,” which incidentally was the closest thing to a pertinent multisyllabic phrase uttered by the birds in years.After all, who wouldn’t want to play softball in the freezing rain? The Gentle Clowns, that’s who.Regardless of scheduling concerns, it’s always Hamm’s O’Clock when the Herald is on the case and our four-person staff will have polished off the keg before the Cardinal can say “free rent.”Now, for the game itself.The Herald is marching out the finest lineup this side of Bascom Hill has ever seen.First, upper management. With this three-headed monster of editorship, who is best described as “literate,” at the helm — there is no chance we will lose.Alice Vagun is the head honcho responsible for outdrinking whatever the largest pigeon at the Cardinal is called. We have faith. Fun fact about Alice is that she was the first person to rhyme “Insane” with “Batman”, and Childish Gambino owes her royalties every time “Freaks and Geeks” plays.Managing Editor Yusra Murad was recently awarded “Roast of the year”, thanks to her performance in the DM’s of the Dirty Bird last week.Managing Editor Teymour Tomsyck is as tall as he is apathetic, need we say more?Now, for the infantry:Batting first will be second baseman Lucas “I made a game-saving play in eighth-grade little league” Johnson.Rounding out the top third of the lineup will be outfielders Will “I’m currently writing this and uncomfortable” Stern and Danny “Has been the sports editor longer than he has been the sports editor” Farber.At cleanup will be third baseman Molly “Can’t get Kevin Jonas to leave her alone” Liebergall followed by shortstop Peyton “I will shove this oxford comma so far up your-” David.Batting sixth is the power hitting Henry “There is no ethical consumption in baseball” Solotaroff-Webber.At DH and up seventh will be Emily “Narrowly avoided a pyramid scheme” Hamer followed by Outfielder Riley “There will Pinot mercy” Steinbrenner.Next will be the catcher Ben “Knows almost every rule of baseball from a high school class” Sefarbi.The lineup will end with our best-underhanded pitcher Jeremy “God’s plan” Frodl.Not to mention our secret weapons which will be revealed when the time comes. We wish the Dirty Birds luck, or rather, better luck than they had last week at the WNA Awards.last_img read more
