Repairing any modern device looks impossible. Thousands of tiny components, all soldered onto multiple boards tightly layered on top of another — it's something only a robot could do. But Jessa Jones wants you to know that it isn't impossible — and to teach you how to do it. Jessa's background is in molecular genetics, and she used that to found the Practical Board Repair School, where she teaches the art of replacing microscopic parts.
Take the lights of nighttime Tokyo and combine them with giant robots and you'll have an idea of the dekotora culture of Japan. Translated as "decoration truck," these disco rigs put the chrome-and-steel kings of American highways to shame. Great Big Story looks and the years, money, and love this small auto subculture puts into the vehicles that make them their living.
We spend about a third of our life sleeping, so the mattress you sleep on every night is incredibly important. Make sure you get the right one by trying out a Casper. This USA-made mattress is made up of multiple layers of foam, including one for support and pressure relief, and one to make sure you don't get too hot. It's all wrapped up in a durable woven cover, and shipped right to your door in a box that's easy to maneuver into even the smallest abodes. You get 100 nights to try it out, can return it for free if you're not satisfied, but if you are (and you probably will be), you can upgrade even further by grabbing some of the company's soft Supima cotton sheets and dual-layer pillows.

Good lighting is always important in film and photography. United Visual Artists think it's equally as important on the stage. While showcasing their work with the British band Massive Attack, the London-based art and design group explore not just the visual aspects of stage lighting, but also the emotional and physical effect it can have on an audience.
