The uncanny places on Earth that look like alien worlds | Random | Scoop.it
We've made huge strides towards finding exoplanets and surveying the other worlds in our solar system recently -- but most of us will never know what it's like to stand on another soil, especially under another sun.

How People Read Online [Infographic]

How People Read Online [Infographic] | Random | Scoop.it
Now that reading online involves a bevy of social actions, from sharing to commenting across a plethora of devices, how many of your site’s readers will make it past the first paragraph?.

Recently Slate's technology columnist investigated this issue further in his article You Won’t Finish This Article. Using data from Chartbeat, he found that most readers don’t engage with the article, and if they do, they are inclined to do so before scrolling half-way down the page.

I think this is amazing even though I don't play games. I would start playing games just to have this controller. Now when your out on a plane or a road trip and you want to play a game, you can use this. Everyone thats a game head should get this, its new level technology.

For children, sarcastic language can be difficult to understand. They generally begin to recognize sarcasm between ages 6 and 8, especially familiar sarcastic praise such as "Thanks a lot!" and "Nice going!"
