Map Reveals World's Earthquakes Since 1898 If you've ever wondered where and why earthquakes happen the most, look no further than a new map which plots more than a century's worth of nearly every recorded earthquake strong enough to at least rattle the bookshelves. The map shows earthquakes of magnitude 4.0 or greater since 1898; each is marked in a lightning-bug hue that glows brighter with increasing magnitude. The overall effect is both beautiful and arresting, revealing the silhouettes of Earth's tectonic boundaries in stark, luminous swarms of colour. The map's maker, John Nelson, the user experience and mapping manager for IDV Solutions, a data visualization company, said the project offered several surprises. To review the blog of IDV Solutions see link http://uxblog.idvsolutions.com/2012/06/earthquakes-since-1898.html

Have you ever dreamed of what it would be like to pilot a giant robot? A roboticist by the name of Hajime Sakamoto dreams of building his very own Gundam mobile suit, and he's making progress on a real 4 meter (13 feet) tall bipedal robot that can carry him around. Unlike the Kuratas, which was built by an iron working artist and moves on wheels, Sakamoto's robot is the real McCoy. His company, the Hajime Research Institute, has been building humanoid robots for the better part of a decade, in various sizes, which have competed in RoboCup soccer matches over the years. In 2009 he built a 210 cm (7 feet) tall humanoid robot, which was controlled with a standard game pad, but apparently that wasn't big enough.

It's hard out there for a geek, especially when it comes to finding a date, but thanks to events like Sci-Fi Speed Dating, comic-book and video game enthusiasts actually have a chance of finding a special someone who shares their interests. Sci-Fi Speed Dating is an event that takes place at Comic Cons around the U.S, giving geeks the chance to meet like-minded members of the opposite sex and hopefully lay the foundation for a real relationship. Ryan Glitch, the man who came up with the idea for Sci-Fi Speed dating, actually met his girlfriend at one of these events and is now on a mission to help fellow geeks find their Princess Leia, Catwoman or whatever other fictional character they might fancy.

poodle cat

9-month-old poodle Pao Pao is seen acting as a babysitter to a kitten at a pet shop in Hefei, According to owner Ho Yunyun, Pao Pao has grown up with the cats, "The cats are quite relaxed with Pao Pao". And apparently Pao Pao takes his duties of raising the kittens up right seriously. "If he sees cats scratch things he will bark at them for reminder. If the cats were fighting he would also dash to separate them and bark at them, seemingly scolding them for not loving each other. To newborn kitties Pao Pao is super tender. He lies beside them gently and let the kitties hug him during sleep". Ho said Pao Pao now acts more and more like a cat. "He now uses his fore claws to clean his face, which is typical to cats. Dogs never do that."

Nimble-fingered Allison Hoffman used her impressive hook skills to fashion all of the Dr Who timelords from crochet. The 35-year-old created them after being asked to supply the ultimate sci-fi soft toy present for a geeky husband. "I made the dolls for a woman that wanted to give her husband a Christmas present that would blow him away," Allison explains. "He is a huge Doctor Who fan and she knew he'd love these toys. He's actually building a custom cabinet to display them now! "Before taking on this project I had only seen the newer Who and not very many episodes, but now I feel like I know all of these people personally! "I've done a ton of research on them and would easily consider myself a Whovian at this point.
