5G is here – It will change the world around us

5G can be 100 times faster than the current 4G (although 30 times faster is more likely), and you can expect some real changes.

What does 5G mean? “Fifth Generation.” It’s the fifth generation of mobile internet technology which all our phones use, and for most of us this just means how fast the internet on our phones is. Right now (since 2010) our phones use 4G (or older).

5G was the center of attention at the Mobile World Congress this year. That’s because it’s bound to have a massive impact on the power of technology around us.

A big area of discussion is self-driving cars, which we’ve all seen a lot of news about, but haven’t seen a lot of actual vehicles driving themselves on the streets. But 5G is so much faster, it could allow cars to talk to each other in realtime, so they can know when other cars are switching lanes, going off the road, passing another car, going too fast, braking, etc., and can adjust their own driving.

The cars will require a bunch of cameras and sensors on them to receive this data, as well as a cloud internet service to manage the masses of data.

The BMW iNEXT, expected to hit the market in 2021, is an SUV already being built to use 5G technology in this way.

Another use for 5G already being talked about is for managing farming. Sensors are already being used on beehives, for example, to measure temperature, humidity, movement and location, so farmers can tend to their farms’ health.

Another one is “smart glasses” that will provide augmented reality. Another is virtual reality on a mobile level – not just plugged into a computer in a room. Another yet is drone swarms to carry out rescue missions or monitor traffic.

With the implementation of 5G, cellular phones will become much faster, and mobile gaming and other internet computing will be burdened with lag a lot less. On the other hand, we can expect technology to have much more power and control over our ability to maintain our privacy and independence.

The advances in technology’s power will not come immediately. They will come as a response to the new capacity of 5G, so we’re talking about upcoming products being built to take advantage of some of what 5G has to offer.

5G is going to use higher-frequency bands – 3.5GHz  – 26GHz and higher, which means faster internet but less strong internet – it can be blocked more easily by real physical obstructions. This might mean a greater number of smaller, closer phone masts, but this would also be more expensive. It also might mean bad or no service in rural areas. 5G is expected to be better at handling lots of devices in a given space are trying to access the internet at the same time, though, so it will reduce internet service congestion in cities.

When? New phones sometime in 2019 in some countries, which will be able to use both 4G and 5G.

What about 6G? The industry is working on it, but it isn’t expected to be available until 2030.

A rare track by Daft Punk’s dj has been released

An unreleased techno track by Daft Punk’s dj, Thomas Bangalter, has been put out, whether you want to call it a leak or a release or what. The song was taken from the “Riga” (a Latvian movie that got the Daft’s a Best Score award nomination) soundtrack which was released last year, and the song is eponymous, and was recorded in one take.

Ed Banger records head Busy P – Ed Banger is also famous for some of our favorites like Justice and Myd, which we’ve talked about here before.

Because Daft Punk haven’t released any new music since 2013 when the mega-successful (for them) “Random Access Memories” came out, with dance hits like “Get lucky,” so people are scooping this new track up. During that time, Daft Punk has been producing music for other musicians.

How did the new track get out? Well, Busy P is Daft Punk’s former manager.

For the Riga session, recording notes credit Bangalter with “beats and loops,” and the Bangalter solo track. The thing came out on a blue, one-sided vinyl record, and some were even sold in Paris last June. Here’s the track on EdBanger’s instagram, because a proper clip of the 14-minute song isn’t really to be found easily online. Maybe it will make its way into the robot’s live set though and someone will up it from there?

Who invented basketball

Who invented basketball

Inventor of Basketball

His name was Dr. James Naismith, and he lived in the second half of the 1800’s and first half of the 1900’s. When he was a schoolboy, there was a game the kids played that was where the whole idea came from. The game was called “duck on a rock” and it involved players trying to throw a rock and knock another rock – this one is placed on top of a third, larger rock and is called a “duck” and knock the duck off.

Was the inventor of basketball Canadian?

Yes, he was born in Canada, but moved to America as an adult, and he invented basketball in America.

Naismith was born in Almonte, Ontario, Canada. He went to university in Montreal (at McGill) and worked as the Athletic Director there too. Then he moved to America – Springfield, Mass. – in the 1890’s to work for the YMCA there.

Naismith continued to live in the States, working at University of Kansas (establishing their basketball program) until his death in 1939.

How was basketball invented?

Naismith made it up on his own, because he needed a good indoor sport for the kids where he worked.

In 1891, while working at the YMCA, Naismith needed a sport that was engaging and could be played inside during the winter. He set about creating a new game. He wanted the game to be not just about strength, but about skill too. And, as he worked out the rules, it came about that the new game would prohibit most physical contact between players: no shouldering, holding, pushing, striking or tripping – the penalty for doing any of these was strict: the first instance would be a foul, and the second instance would disqualify the player until the next goal, and if the ref thought there was intention to harm, the player would be kicked out of the game with no substitution allowed. Player were also not allowed to hit the ball with a closed fist.

The first basketball was a soccer ball. And the first basketball hoop was a basket, and the ball had to stay in the basket to be counted as a point. The rules were much the same, although some parts have changed since the first “basketball” games were played. The game really took off within a year or two, and was popular by 1893, and was put in the Olympics in 1936.

Who invented basketball shoes?

Converse. Specifically, Marquis Converse. He came up with the Converse All-Star in 1923 (the roots of the shoe date back to 1917), and the shoes became popular and got endorced by Chuck Taylor.

All-Star Converse shoes had a real sales market since the 1920’s, and their status had periodic elevations in the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, but basketball shoes didn’t really take off and become massively profitable products on a large scale (outside of basketball) until the 1980’s. That’s when mega sports star Michael Jordan became a hugely influential personality. As kids and adults paid notice of Jordan, they also noticed what he wore, and with some powerful marketing, noticing the type of shoes Jordan wore got an even stronger focus. His shoes was the Nike Air Jordan 1. As other big basketball stars picked their shoe, it gave power to the brands that made those shoes, and a lot of other stars wore Nike’s, as well as Converse and other brands.

The simplest camper trailer you can build in your driveway

The simplest camper trailer you can build in your driveway

If you’ve ever wanted to build or customize your own camper or trailer but didn’t know where to start, we’ve found the perfect project for you. Compact camping has become more and more popular in recent years, but not everyone has the money to invest in a top of the line model, and it’s really not a necessary thing, especially if you’ve got the tools, materials, and willingness to experiment a little and make something tailored to your needs.

The Explorer Box is a small, beginner camping trailer with enough nooks and crannies to outfit you for a weekend (or two) of fun. Simply plop your tent on top and get rolling. You can see photos in the overview at Compact Camping Concepts, as well as a list of what comes with the purchase of the blueprints – materials list, building notes, and the like.

You’ll need to have three pieces in order to complete the project: a flat bed trailer (you can purchase an already-made trailer or buy a kit), the Explorer Box, and a tent to go on top. Once you have all these items put together, you’re ready to start your life as a weekend nomad.

You can also click through the other pages on the Compact Camping Concepts site, which boasts a store, a gallery, and a blog.

Cowboy wok plow disk

There’s really nothing that can compete with a meal cooked outdoors. I have fond memories of campouts and fishing trips where we sat around the fire and ate our freshly cooked food. Nowadays, there are several dozen different types of outdoor cooking, some of I’ve just recently heard of, like this “Cowboy Wok“, which is basically a standing open grill (also called a plow disk).

There are companies like Southwest Disk that specialize the cowboy wok, and other business that sell them as part of their inventory on Amazon. Wherever you get one, you’ll need to read up on the safety and use section of the guide prior to firing it up and trying it out.

Of course, after getting the cowboy wok, you’ll have to figure out what you want to make first — there’s a FaceBook group full of suggestions, complete with photos and videos of every kind of recipe you can imagine, from chicken pasta to antelope tacos.

If you’d rather rig a DIY version of a cowboy wok, there are plenty of YouTube tutorials to guide you, such as the one by Dave’s Homestead. Whether you buy one or make one (or alter one), you’ll be cooking up a tasty mess of home-cooked vittles in no time.

Home-made Pipe Bench - Easy to make this bench with a few basic materials

When I’m entertaining, especially in the spring and summer, I’m often looking for ways to add extra seating without it being intrusive and noticeable. Having to use chairs means there will be a lot of potential clutter, which is difficult if you want a free-flowing party with mingling, dancing, or games.

That’s where this homemade pipe bench comes in — it’s affordable, easy, and can seat more than one person. It can also be disassembled and put up for the next time you want to have a backyard BBQ, garden party, or evening soiree.

This type of furniture would also look good in a house with an industrial bent, or even in a cafe, coffee shop, or at special events such as weddings. If you have a catering company or own another small business where seating is required, this could potentially be a lot cheaper than trying to purchase a large amount of chairs.

To make one pipe bench, you’ll need a wooden board, the proper tools, and the following pipe materials: elbow fittings, T fittings, 10″ nipples, 12″ nipples, and end caps. You can have the wooden board measured and cut at the store to save you time, if you prefer.

If you’d like to learn more about making your own bench, you can see the tutorial as well as a supplies list on Homemade Modern.

How to Look Taller

These are tips that any person can do, and they will make you look approximately 10-15 feet tall. If you use all of these techniques at once, you could achieve a maximum 55 foot tall appearance. Just kidding, but these really will make you look a lot taller.

  • Tuck in your shirt and pull the waist of your pants up. Of course, this makes you look like you have longer legs, which is what makes most tall people tall.
  • Wear pointed shoes
  • Pull up the ankles of your pants (or roll them under or cuff them, or have them hemmed – if you have jeans hemmed, you can have them reattach the hem so they look like they were made that length)
  • Monochroming – wear the same color top and bottom, which makes it appear you have no separation (an illusion of sketchiness) between top and bottom
  • Roll up sleeves and bottom of a shirt, which sometimes makes the shirt look too small. Same with ankles of jeans. This also makes legs look more slender, because it only shows the most slender part.
  • Wear a longer (superlong) necklace.
  • A tighter shirt can make a torso look thinner in comparison to the rest of your body
  • Another note: if you’re using a fashion element that makes you look taller, like a type of necklace, you can accentuate it by wearing a contrasting color underneath, so for example if your necklace is gold or silver, you can wear a black or navy shirt.

Omega Seamaster Watch with Cuffs

Here’s how a cufflink and watch fan matches their outfit: Matching Omega cufflinks and a Seamaster.

Not only fashionable, also function … and a pop culture reference.

The Omega Seamaster is a line of auto-wind and quartz watches. They started making them in 1948, so there are some vintage watch versions of these. They became pop a bit later, though.

The Seamaster is particularly popular among celebrities, with famous wearers including Prince William, Joe Biden, Jeremy Clarkson, Gabriel Holmes and Adam Savage. An Omega Seamaster typically has a stainless steel case and bracelet (Bond style with Omega symbol clasp), screw-in crown and case-back, engraved with the Omega hippocampus logo, up to 1200-metre water resistant, luminescent hands, unidirectional bezel, blue, silver or black dial with orange accents, sapphire crystal (anti-reflective) and helium release valve.

Yes, they are pretty much maybe most famous because of their association with a certain 007 intelligence agent. This is the watch featured in 8 recent Bond movies (starting in the 90s).

Super-small rooftop tent

Super-small rooftop tent

While in the past people have been concerned with amassing every single item needed for the perfect camping trip, nowadays it seems that less is best. There’s not so much stress when it comes to ensuring all the things are included and there’s more thought behind the why of camping – getting away from the rush, enjoying nature, and spending time in solitude.

It’s also easier to do these days, especially with the uptick in interest around nomadic travel and designers who understand that simple, aerodynamic shapes are easier to work with. Sebastian Maluska, designer of a rooftop tent that affixes to the top of a vehicle, knows that very little is needed for a quiet weekend getaway.

Lightweight materials such as aluminum and waterproof fabric make up the entire tent, leaving room for one or two sleeping bags. The tent folds up quickly, and provides shelter whether in rain or sun. A ladder is also provided so that entry and exit are easy to attain.

If this type of tent camping interests you, there are plenty of photos and a write-up about this particular rooftop tent over at Bless This Stuff, which also notes that the model, named “The Nest”, is not only lightweight but cost conscious as well, taking up very little room and keeping costs down not only by materials but by conserving fuel as well (due to the shape and weight).

Make 8bit Wooden Reindeer

What about making reindeer out of readily-available wood to use as decorations outside the house this Christmas? We decided to make a basic plan for anyone out there to use to make an 8bit reindeer for their yard. The size is easy to adjust, and you could make it out of 2x6s (it would stand about 3 feet high or so when completed) or little pieces of plywood (for small foot high decorations). You can see from our blueprints we used equal-sized large squares as measurement-points, so you can simply divide or multiply to your chosen size. This reindeer shape was most influenced by a popular IKEA reindeer decoration that came out a few years back. We thought it might make a nice wooden DIY project, too!

DIRECTIONS for the large-size wooden 8bit reindeer:

  • Get 2x6s and 2x4s (you could actually just use 2x4s exclusively by woodglueing them together)
  • But the boards to the large rectangular shapes for each body part
  • Notch and cut out the few adjustments to these large pieces. This involves the 3 leg pieces, as well as the angle-cut for the face
  • Glue the 8bit reindeer together with wood glue
  • Paint to desired color(s), and add any custom elements you want (We show one picture there where we colorized the design orange-brown, with white spraypaint around the edges, ears and face, and added a red nose and painted-on eyes
  • We also show how to make antlers for those out there who want an adult-looking reindeer

If anyone makes one of these, big or small, please send us the photos so we can add them to this!

Who does this? Collecting flower pedals in season

Does anyone here collect the masses of flower pedals when the seasons change and the streets and parks are covered with them? Cherry and plum season are big ones! If so, what do you do with the pedals?

Do you scent your sinks, bathtubs, and ice waters? Or do you have some DIY craft purpose for them?

How to paint with plastic wrap or wrapped string

How to paint with plastic wrap or wrapped string

Now that those of us who grew up in the 80’s and 90’s are adults, there seems to be a resurgence of those colors and patterns that we loved (or hated, as the case may be) into the mainstream. Of course, most of us aren’t able to spend thousands of dollars on decor, but there are thrifty ways to inject some of that playful energy into your own home, without having to purchase many supplies.

One of the best parts of being a DIY-er is that you typically have a lot of what you already need at home. Alisa Burkes, who showcases her work on Flickr, is a testament to what you can do with the plainest and simplest of materials. Using bubble wrap, saran wrap, and string with her paints, she has created many whimsical, unique designs that bring to mind the tie-dye, splash, and color combos of the 1990’s.

If you want to try this out, you’ll need acrylic paints, and assorted household materials, such as paper towel or toilet paper tubes, cotton string, and various textures such as felt, foam, or even an old washcloth. If you’re even more daring, you might want to try vegetables and fruits as well. You can paint on linen or canvas bags, scarves, t-shirts, board, cardboard, or, if you really want to go full 90’s, an accent wall.

Check out Alisa Burke’s Flickr for inspiration.

A Log Bed

While Sitka Log Homes is best known for their beautiful, artistic work in home building, they don’t just spend their time selling blueprints or building log cabins. Some of their other projects, while on a smaller scale, showcase their attention to detail, their inventiveness, and their dedication to providing quality to their customers.

You can browse through the website to find plans, photos, and the like if you’re wanting a peek at their construction process, but their log and timber projects are just as interesting, especially if you’re wanting inspiration for your own work.

One of their most interesting designs is the log and timber bedframe, which utilizes both cut and raw wood, which creates a unique silhouette for the frame, something that reminds me of ancient fairytales and fantasy creations by C.S. Lewis or J.R.R. Tolkien. I can picture this bed in a host of places, including a hobbit hole, a mountain cabin, or even a loft that needs a forest influence.

If you’re handy and want a new carpentry challenge, a look at their frame should be enough to work out what you can do in order to make it your personal DIY project. You can see it, along with their other smaller projects, at the Sitka Log Homes website.

British grandfather created an ecosystem in a bottle garden he hasn't watered in more than 46 years

One of the big complaints I hear from plant owners is that it can be a challenge to remember to water their plants, and with some plants, all it takes is one missed watering and it’s gone (especially with pickier plants like orchids). We had to quit buying plants for my mother because of this – we nicknamed her the ‘serial plant killer’.

Luckily, even if you don’t have a green thumb, you can still enjoy the benefits of having indoor plants. It just takes a little more creativity up front. David Latimer, an English native, has kept the same plant alive in an enclosed ecosystem since 1972.

The spiderwort sprout Mr. Latimer used was given enough water to foster its own ecosystem, and with sunshine pouring through its glass case, it has no trouble composting and creating carbon dioxide. It’s a fascinating study of how the Earth works, and would be an excellent project for a science classroom, a family gardening experiment, or even as a gift to your favorite botanist.

If you’d like to learn more and perhaps build your own sealed bottle garden, you can get inspired by searching out and reading about David Latimer.

Trampoline Tent Cover for Backyard Camping

One of the best late spring or early summer activities is getting to spend time outdoors. Of course, there are a few downsides, like bugs, but the benefits and fun far outweigh the downsides, which can be fixed with citronella candles and mosquito net – or, if you’re wanting to spend the night outside, a tent cover for the trampoline.

If you’ve already got a trampoline, or are considering one, you may also want to check out trampoline tent covers, which can be put up and taken down quickly, allowing for an impromptu camping trip without all the hustle and bustle, reservations, planning, and car time that a regular camping trip requires. You can set up a campfire, tell spooky stories, and then snuggle into a sleeping bag and thank the stars you have a cozy cover that keeps the weather and bugs off you while you dream.

There are plenty of styles to choose from, some with additions and extras like inflatable capability, a treehouse design, or windows. There are more kid-friendly options as well as more practical designs for the adults. You can find covers for $50.00 and up on Amazon, or you can check out places like Wal-Mart or Wayfair for their offerings, which come in all sizes – you’ll be able to find the perfect fit for your trampoline. You may also be able to catch these on sale during cooler months, so keep an eye out and add one of these to your wishlist.

A Faster Freestyle

There are different swimming styles and strokes like breaststroke. This is the most popular swim stroke of all, where both arms execute half-circular movements at the same time under the water. The backstroke is faster than breaststroke but slower than butterfly and it is an excellent workout for the back. There is the butterfly stroke which is a very unique technique since it is performed with the face down in the water and the legs perform a dolphin kick while the arms move in a forward circle at the same time. Sidestroke is not used in swimming competitions. These are some techniques and strokes in swimming just to name a free, but the most useful swim stroke is the free style. It is the fastest and most efficient of the competitive swimming strokes. That is the reason why it is always used in swimming competitions.

Here are the winning steps and tips of free style stroke according to one study:

1. Position your body parallel to the bottom of the pool. You’ll be turning your arms and shoulders and twisting your body as you move your arms, but your head should remain centered until you need to breathe. This position will give you the balance you need to swim freestyle successfully.

2. Your elbow must come out of the water as this will prepare you to move the arm forward as far as you can. The arm that is not extended should hang at your side at the water, about perpendicular to the bottom of the pool, as you extend it backward.

3. Extend the arm as far as you can to maximize your speed and the distance you cover in the pool. Keep your fingers together to make a slight “cup” with your hand. Your other hand should rotate backward until it is parallel with your side.

4. To finish the stroke with the first arm, you’ll need to do the “catch,” which means you should curve your hand back inward toward your belly button, then out again by your hip as your hand “pulls” on the water and exits it. This will help you maximize your control over the water, which will help propel you forward. If you just move your arm back in a straight line, you won’t be able to “catch” the water as well. Then, fully extend your arm behind you so that your thumbs graze the side of your thighs below your suit-line.

5. Breathe every third stroke. Stroke with your right arm, your left arm, and then breathe when you stroke with your right arm again; then, stroke with your left arm, your right arm, and then breathe when you stroke with your left arm again. As you come up to breathe, place your ear on one shoulder with your cheek in the water, giving your mouth enough room to breathe comfortably.

Camping Recipes You'll Want To Try And Share

Malls get boring and beaches get old. Why don’t you try camping with your friends? You will surely have a good time in the woods, setting up your tent, cooking your own foods and hunting in the wild. Camping sounds like a great adventure and you really don’t have to worry about what you’re going to eat in the forest. Here’s a quick guide that will help you come up with the tastiest recipes over your campfire:

1. S’moreos

Toast marshmallows on a stick over your campire. When toasted, sandwich the marshmallows with two graham crackers. Add small pieces of chocolate inside.

2. Campfire Cones

Chop apples and bananas or any fruit of your choice into smaller pieces. Put together in a bowl your sliced fruits, chocolates and marshmallows. Wrap your cones with foil. Stuff the cone with your mixed fruits, chocolates and marshmallows. Toast the cone over the fire.

3. Barbecued Apple Crisp

Before leaving home to camp, prepare the foil recipe that you will bring in the woods. Mix nutmeg, cinnamon, oats, flour and sugars. Pour butter and mix. Put the mixture in the fridge. Meanwhile, slice apples and spread in the mix from the fridge. Squeeze in lemon juice. Spread your mix a foil and wrap it into squares. Bring it to your camp and toast over fire during lunch.

4. Banana S’mores

Preheat your grill to medium heat. Partly slice banana into halves, lengthwise. Put on an aluminum foil. Put in marshmallows and chocolate chips in between the slices. Wrap in aluminum foil and grill. Once grilled, unwrap it and put cereal or sprinkles on top.

5. Blueberry Cobler

Ready your grill charcoals. Mix blueberries, sugar and flour then transfer mixture into baking pan. Cook over the grill for 10 minutes and then stir. Cook for another 10 minutes and make sure the juices have been released. Put tiny bits of biscuits on top of the blueberry mixture and cook for 10 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.

Bonus. Pan Fried Pizza

Just like home made oven baked pizza, but made in your campfire pan.
