Extreme Slow-Mo Video of Things Getting Destroyed

We spend so much time, money, and effort that once in a while we like to see things getting destroyed. It’s safe. We can watch things from a distance get pulverized. Add to that the exceedingly popular stuff-in-slow-motion trend and you’ve got one pretty spectacular video of stuff getting destroyed in slow-mo. The following video was shot by Philip Heron and James Adair on a Photron SA1.1 high speed camera.

The video aired on Freeview on Wednesday the 19th of May 2010 for Rave Live. Makes you wanna go out and get a high speed camera and break stuff, though we recommend you consult a professional before you… blah blah! Hope you enjoy this as much as we did.

Potentially Hazardous Asteroid to Collide With Earth in 2182

Scientists have been monitoring and calculating the likelihood of a potentially disastrous asteroid collision with the Earth in the year 2182. The asteroid, (101955) 1999 RQ36, is only estimated to be a one-in-a-thousand chance that it will collide with the Earth, but as scientists have calculated the potential impacts through the year 2200, over half of the calculations point to the year 2182 for a collision.

The mathematics behind the calculations come by using two different models, the Monte Carlo Method and line of variations sampling. Using these models, VIs (Virtual Impactors) have been searched. VIs are sets of uncertainties that would lead to collisions with the Earth, two of which appear in 2182 with over half the chance of an impact.

The asteroid is part of a group of Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHA), which all have the possibility of colliding with the Earth and causing damage because of the proximity of their orbits. The asteroid in question was discovered in 1999 and has roughly 560 meters in diameter.

Yahoo Japan to Switch to Google’s Search Engine

Yahoo Japan, Japan’s largest Internet portal operator, will adopt Google’s search engine, refusing to follow Yahoo Inc in choosing Microsoft as a partner.

Yahoo Japan, which currently uses Yahoo Inc’s search technology, and Google together would control almost all of the search market in the word’s second-biggest economy.

The deal stands in stark contrast to the decision by Yahoo Inc, which owns roughly one-third of Yahoo Japan, to integrate its search technology with Microsoft after the U.S. government blocked a potential tie-up with Google.

Yahoo Japan, which hopes the deal will strengthen its No. 1 position in the domestic market, will also adopt Google’s search-linked advertisement delivery system and feed its data to Google sites.

Apple’s New Honesty Feature

With all the chatter about Apple and their new iPhone recently, it can be hard to escape the noise. Bad press seems to be everywhere, from complaints about Apple lying about the white version of the new iPhone 4, to the over-reported antenna issue. Wouldn’t it be great if Apple let you decide whether you wanted to hear about it anymore?

Of course it would, and now there’s an app for that.

Ok, so maybe it’s not that easy, but this iPhone screen cap sure gets our hopes up. Maybe one day you’ll be able to exclude certain terms from your mobile entertainment experience by simply submitting a list of things you don’t want to show up. Here’s to hoping.

Bikers Ride in Honor of 28 Million Living With Cancer

The final stage of the Tour de France was flooded with color but today, the color black is what stood out from the pack. Led by cancer survivor and seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong, Team RadioShack started the finale by swapping their official red-and-gray racing kit in favor of exclusive black “28″ jerseys, dedicating their ride to the 28 million people worldwide currently living with cancer. Although race officials mandated that the team return to their official Team RadioShack kits, the messaging still broke through the pack.

“RadioShack’s partnership with Lance Armstrong has always been about more than cycling. It’s about engaging our customers and more than 35,000 associates in the global fight against cancer,” said Lee Applbaum, chief marketing officer for RadioShack Corp. “We understand that for 28 million people around the world, the race is not over.”
