in case 785 smelly hound dogs eat your holiday turkey, Binging with Babish has you covered. The chef prepares Peking duck, similar to what Ralphie and his family are served at the Chinese restaurant in the Christmas classic. He wraps the meat up in a homemade Mandarin-style pancake and tops it with thinly sliced cucumbers, scallions, and hoisin sauce.
In 1957, Ivan Chermayeff and Tom Geismar teamed up to create what would be one of the most legendary design duos ever. Over their 60 years together, they've made some of the most iconic logos for companies like Pan Am, Mobil Oil, PBS, and Xerox, and that's just scratching the surface. In this short tribute, their extraordinary career is highlighted with an interview of the pair, sadly the last for Chermayeff.
Based in Brooklyn, New York, graphic designer Scott Reinhard combines vintage maps with elevation data to create stunning pieces of art. Reinhard uses a chromogenic process to create each print, which takes traditional color photography development and integrates 3-dimensional data with paper maps for a result that is so visually appealing, you'll be tempted to reach out and feel what looks like 3D texture. The process brings the maps to life, creating a 2D print that is vibrant and detailed giving you a unique work of art that blends history and modern technology. In addition to the topographic maps, Reinhard creates compelling digitally rendered maps and has even adopted his technique to the surface of the moon.
It's hard to beat the convenience of K-Cup coffee packs, and the Oxx Coffeeboxx lets you enjoy them wherever you might be. The brewer itself is housed in a dust-proof, water- and impact-resistant shell that can withstand loads of up to 1500 lbs. yet weighs just 12. It can fit mugs up to 8" tall, and has options for 8, 10, and 12 oz cups, with a 30 second pre-heat and 75 second brew time. A 3-foot retractable cord and built-in handle make it easy to tote around, a 2.5L water reservoir lasts all day, and the separate hot water dispenser makes it good for making tea, oatmeal, noodles, and other things, too.
How could humans make something that they have no idea how it works? This is the secret behind machine learning — the algorithms that run nearly everything we do in our digital lives. CGP Grey tries to explain how something we don't really know how it works, works, and how these robots are the future of humans.
Retirement isn' the end — it's the beginning. Just ask Kobe Bryant's jerseys. They might be hanging from the rafters of the Staples Center, but they have big plans for the future.
