Colour me impressed by #FNB


In less than a week, I went from no account to iPad 2 delivered to me, paying less in fees with the iPad than I was at #StandardBank , who have been less than standard in terms of service recently.

The world's first "spherical flying machine" developed by Japan's...



Reshared post from +Tom Anderson
The world's first "spherical flying machine" developed by Japan's ministry of defense. It can hover like a helicopter and take off and land vertically. If it hits an obstacle, it can maintain its trajectory through the use of gyroscopes. It can roll along the ground and walls to maneuver into position. The prototype is made of commercially available parts costing just $1,400. It's equipped with a camera.

I realize this was made for defense and spying, but at this price I'm guessing someone will be able to make a toy out of it as well. :-)

PS: I was going to share the throwable ball camera this morning, but +Trey Ratcliff beat me to it (http://bit.ly/t4tAR7), so I'm going with the Japanese drone instead :-)

The 147 Companies That Run The World



Reshared post from +Morgan ABBOU
The 147 Companies That Run The World

Three systems theorists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich have taken a database listing 37 million companies and investors worldwide and analyzed all 43,060 transnational corporations and share ownerships linking them. They built a model of who owns what and what their revenues are and mapped the whole edifice of economic power.

In effect, less than 1 per cent of the companies were able to control 40 per cent of the entire network, says Glattfelder from the New Scientist. Most were financial institutions.

Hồ Plitvice, thiên đường là đây

Công viên quốc gia hồ Plitvice có phong cảnh cực kỳ đẹp nằm trong khu vực Lika của Croatia. Công viên được bao quanh bởi các ngọn núi Plješevica , Mala Kapela, và Medveđak, nó cũng chính là một phần của dãy núi Alps Dinaric. Có tất cả 16 hồ với màu xanh lục và xanh dương xen kẻ tại Plitvice, được phân cách bởi các vách đá vôi tự nhiên nằm trên cao nguyên Plitvice. Thác nước kết nối các hồ với nhau. Thác nước cao nhất tại đây có tên là Veliki Slap, có độ cao khoảng 70 mét (230 feet). Các khu vực quanh hồ Plitvice có thể tự hào với một lượng lớn các hệ thực vật phong phú đầy màu sắc và các loài động vật thú vị . Du khách có thể đi bộ theo nhiều con đường mòn và nhân tạo xuyên qua các tán lá cây và hồ nước trong xanh, hoặc khám phá mặt hồ bằng thuyền. Công viên có 3 khách sạn và một khu cắm trại, nếu không thích ở đây du khách có thể lựa chọn nơi nghĩ khác tại các làng mạc và thành phố lân cận.
