Radio Station in Houston Now Only Plays Beyoncé
A radio station in Houston has a new format: All Beyoncé, all the time Nothing but Beyoncé — not even any ads. No Destiny's Child, either (sorry, Kelly and Michelle.) See also: 'Crazy in Love': 20 Songs by Music's Power Couples News 92 FM, Houston's first FM all-news radio station, shocked fans and employees with the announcement that it would be shutting down immediately. Listeners were confused when at, at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, a traffic report transitioned into the singer's flawless discography without explanation. The station's all-news format was an experiment to begin with when it was founded in 2011. Although News 92 FM had a staff of seasoned journalists and a dedicated following, they sadly never found a sustainable business model. Read more...

Evil YouTuber Convinces Grandma That 'Frozen' Is Real
We still can't tell if this is incredibly sweet or downright evil. Kevin Droniak has made a YouTube career out of convincing his grandmother that he attends school with Miley Cyrus, is going to prom with Beyoncé and other clearly false realities about his life. This may seem like a simple (and possibly evil) premise, but Droniak's YouTube page,This Kid Needs Medicine, has amassed more than 13 million views.

Implanted Prosthetic Arm Moves Us One Step Closer to Bionics
Modern prosthetics work better and, in some cases, look cooler, than ever before. Still, most amputees are removing them at night and reattaching them in the morning. They're not part of the body, and they do not offer the same kinds of sensations One Swedish amputee, however, is wearing a different kind of prosthesis — one that is actually connected to his own bone, muscles and nerves. The result is a mind-controlled artificial arm that offers more movement, less discomfort and — in the long run — actual touch sensation.

Colorful Butterfly Wings Inspire Counterfeit-Proof Technology - http://mashable.com/2014...
Colorful Butterfly Wings Inspire Counterfeit-Proof Technology
To stop identity thieves and counterfeiters, a group of researchers is looking for inspiration from an unlikely source: butterflies. In order to attract a mate, the male Pierella luna butterfly of Latin America uses its wings to perform an advanced optical trick known as reverse color diffraction. Thanks to the microstructure of its wings — made up of tiny scales curled slightly upward at the end to diffract light — the butterfly appears to change color when it's viewed from different angles. Now, researchers at Harvard University have figured out a way to use artificial photonic materials to mimic the Pierella luna's attractive light show. They've created what's known as a diffraction grating, a surface that splits white light into its individual wavelengths of color and sends those colors traveling in different directions. When the photonic material is viewed from one angle, it looks to be one color, but from a different angle the color appears to change, says study co-author... - Blog Profit Expert

The Stock Market Just Had Its Worst Day of 2014
NEW YORK — The stock market had its worst day of the year Thursday, just 24 hours after recording its best. The Dow Jones industrial average plunged 334 points as falling energy stocks and worries about the global economy sent investors fleeing out of the market. The blue-chip index rose 275 points the day before. For three years, U.S. investors have enjoyed a stock market that has, for the most part, quietly and steadily moved higher. The pleasure cruise appears to be over. Market volatility is back and in a big way, market observers say. The stock market hasn't seen day-to-day movements like this since August 2011, when Standard & Poor's downgraded the United States' credit rating. The S&P downgrade subsequently pushed the U.S. stock market into its last "correction," a technical term for when stocks fall 10% or more from a recent peak. Read more...

Super Typhoon Vongfong Menaces Okinawa and Mainland Japan
Super Typhoon Vongfong, which became the most powerful tropical cyclone of the year earlier this week, has taken a turn to the north, on a course that will take its core of ferocious winds and high waves perilously close to Okinawa and then on toward the mainland Japanese island of Kyushu this weekend. As of 4 p.m. ET, the storm had maximum sustained winds of 150 miles per hour, making it a Category 4 storm, and just barely meeting the minimum standard to be called a "super" typhoon It will likely lose the latter distinction by early Friday morning eastern time. Satellite imagery shows a well-organized storm, though, with an eye that has varied between 30 to 50 miles wide at times. Vongfong is forecast to pass near or over the island of Okinawa on Saturday as a Category 3 storm, posing a significant threat to U.S. military personnel stationed there. The storm will then move north-northeast, toward making landfall in Kyushu on Sunday afternoon or evening eastern time, most likely as a... - Blog Profit Expert

Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro Design Was Inspired by Fine Watches
The first Lenovo Yoga laptop was an inspired piece of hybrid design: a full-featured laptop that could be used in four different modes, thanks to a special hinge that could unfold the screen a full 360 degrees. Two years later, Lenovo is taking the Yoga's design to new heights of minimalism. The Yoga 3 Pro is a Windows laptop that weighs just 2.62 pounds and measures a mere 0.5 inch at its thickest point. And it still manages to fit a 13-inch display — with an incredibly sharp 3,200 x 1,800 resolution, no less.
