Walk downtown in The Hague, Netherlands, and you'll find a tiny butcher shop with a giant glass window and wooden front.A selection of fresh steaks, chicken, smoked bacon, and mackerel chill inside the front counter.It looks like a retro-style butcher shop — with one major difference.The first of its kind, the shop is fittingly called The Vegetarian Butcher.Since the shop was founded in 2010, the demand for its products has grown tremendously.The shop now sells its vegetarian meats to more than 3,000 stores in 13 countries.

Sirpa Kähkönen Kuopio-series is already the seventh part of, summer 1968.the Book is, however, independent and open to those who have not read the earlier parts.Kähkönen describes a few of the family steps on a small, just a few blocks in the area.many are still living at the plank fences, birch and maple leaf, harry shadow in wooden houses and drink their morning coffee out on the stairs.the Reader goes into the past of the world, where women do the housework, families eat pork and gravy and black-and-white tv are still new rough.the Workman chooses sides, even though the battle home on behalf of or suffered as a political prisoner.
It may be hard to imagine a time before they existed, but Apple's retail stores celebrated their 15th birthday on Thursday.When they first opened, the concept of an Apple Store seemed like a risky proposition — The New York Times called it "an aggressive move during an economic slowdown".At the time, Apple's computer business was doing ok, but the personal computer landscape was still dominated by Windows PCs.The iPod was a success, but in the pre-iPhone days Apple didn't have a lot of money to burn on ventures like retail.Fifteen years and 479 stores later, the bet Apple made paid off.Apple stores generate more revenue per square foot than any other retailer — even jewelry stores.Before they officially opened, Steve Jobs made a video walkthrough of the Tysons Corner, VA store to give folks an idea of what the stores would look like.Some things, including the genius bar and long wooden tables, have remained the same, while the overall layout of the stores has since evolved.The video is a blast from the past, and comes from a time when Apple was still the underdog, trying new things to differentiate themselves from all the other PC makers.
You can buy an iPhone as you walk down The Avenue, enjoy a seminar with artists in The Forum, fix your laptop under the trees in the Genius Grove and get some training in The Boardroom.The stores confounded early expectations and helped Apple become one of the most admired consumer brands in history.The reboot was led by design chief Jony Ive and Angela Ahrendts, who worked at Burberry before joining Apple two years ago to run the retail operations.If the concept works as designed, you'll buy into Apple's ecosystem of hardware, content and services—at least for another few years.Visitors will be able to enjoy the show from a few dozen wooden and leather stools designed by Ive's elite unit.This space extends Apple's push to attract business customers that has seen the company team up with Cisco, SAP and IBM in recent years.The San Francisco version is also home to a fountain by local sculptor Ruth Asawa.When Apple reported slowing iPhone sales earlier this year, Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri said customers weren't upgrading their handsets as quickly as they once did.
A 3D-printed replica is nothing more than a plastic trinket if it doesn t function as well as the original.But as revealed last year, a company called 3Dvarius has created the world s first 3D-printed playable electric violin that sounds just as good as its wooden equivalent—and now you can finally buy one.Its creator, Laurent Bernadac, and the rest of the team at 3Dvarius, have turned to Kickstarter with a $56,000 crowdfunding campaign to help put the 3D-printed instrument into the hands of musicians around the world.That s certainly on the pricier side of violins, even for electric models, but none look like an instrument from the future.The 3Dvarius shape and design is also based on the revered Stradivarius, which can fetch millions at auction.Just don t expect the Antiques Roadshow to get excited when you bring it in for an appraisal.

The Xiaomi Drone teaser released by the companyChinese smartphone maker Xiaomi is all set to reveal the company's first drone and has released a teaser prior to its launch slated to take place on 25 May.The company posted two photos on its Weibo account, the first with a hand holding a wooden propeller, indicating that the upcoming product will be able to fly and then the photo above showing off a product shaped like a camera-drone.Unlike smartphones and tablets it is hard to speculate on the specifications of a product like a drone as different manufacturers bring their own innovations.We have been hearing about Xiaomi's first drone for the past few months, but, until this month, the company did not confirm the existence of the new product.Xiaomi had also patented a drone that could be operated from a smart wristband using gesture control techniques.As for the release of the drone, large markets like the US and Europe are still devoid of official sales of Xiaomi phones.

Insoles, rocket engines, circuit boards — you name it and there s undoubtedly somebody out there that s figured out a way to print it.In all fairness, it probably can t match the warm acoustic tones of a wooden Stradivarius, but what the 3DVarius lacks in acoustic sound quality, it makes up for with more user-friendly features and broader functionality.Like many of the more affordable printers that have surfaced in the past couple years, 101Hero is a delta-style 3D printer, meaning it uses three vertically moving parallel motors to change the position of the filament extruder.This configuration allows the machine to make accurate prints without any high-precision rails, linear bearings, or other crazy-expensive CNC components you d find in cartesian-style printers.As if that wasn t awesome enough, it s also got a passively cooled extruder tip which is unheard of , and a removable build plate that makes it less of a hassle to retrieve your finished prints.If you leave your wallet behind in a public place, whats to stop a thief from swiping your money and ditching the wallet?
This wouldn t be a particularly noteworthy action, except that it included an image of what appears to be Variety s upcoming cover, depicting Marissa Mayer as a Christ-like figure carrying a Y-shaped cross.Indeed.Mayer is hanging out in what looks like some kind of desert environment, carrying a Y-shaped wooden cross on her back, her face etched with pain, embarrassment, or both.Does the skull on the ground represent the poor Yahoo shareholders screwed over by bad management and poor decisions?Marissa Mayer couldn t handle lifting the weight of a massive, billion-dollar company?It s either that, or I m going to get stoned and start throwing out some alternative interpretations.

Moshi makes great products, fusing functional and beautiful design with premium materials, but that doesn t mean they re cut out to make great headphones.You get the thick-gauge cardboard box with invisible magnetic clasp, a simple-yet-informational graphic on the inside cover, a high-quality compact carrying case, the headphones, a headphone cable, and a modicum of paperwork thank you!For one, we enjoy how tightly the Avanti fold up for compact storage.Their most striking sonic attribute is their ability to produce instrumental texture – the gut of a cello string, the zing of a trumpet, the wooden clack as a drumstick attacks a ride cymbal.We never had any problems with harshness or sibilance – cymbals just seemed to have more verve than usual, and brass instruments an added measure of zing, for example.For anyone who wants a slick-looking pair of cans with a premium feel and sound quality to match, we think the Avanti are a perfect fit.
Image: Goldfinger, 1964 Back in 2006, Nike introduced the high-performance SUMO 2 golf club driver, specially engineered to help golfers hit straighter shots, even for slightly off-center hits.That s the conclusion of Daniel Russell, an acoustician at Pennsylvania State University, who described the results of his latest experiments earlier today at a meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in Salt Lake City, Utah.Last summer, he heard that Nike Golf was designing a new line of composite drivers with the goal of addressing that unpleasant impact sound.It was such a different—some say annoyingly loud—sound, it raised eyebrows.Kerrian likens the sound of impact from the SUMO 2 to the tin-can ping of an aluminum baseball bat—a pet peeve of avid baseball players, who generally prefer the satisfying crack of a wooden bat.Acoustics can help find a happy medium between the two extremes, according to Russell: Understanding how and why clubs make the sounds they make is the first step toward helping sports engineers design clues that sound just right, while still hitting the ball straight and far.

Eileen Scanlon, left, steps across a 44-foot wooden boat on Wednesday, May 25, 2016, underneath a home she rents in Highlands, N.J. Thomas P. Costello/The Asbury Park Press via AP HIGHLANDS, N.J. – Workers raising a waterfront home in New Jersey made a nautical discovery: a 44-foot wooden boat from the 19th century.The 12-foot wide vessel, its rudder fully intact, was found beneath Eileen Scanlon's Highlands bungalow on Wednesday, the Asbury Park Press reported.The boat likely was used to transport coal and other good along local waterways, and pieces of coal were found scattered along the floor.Rumors of the vessel's existence had circulated for years.Scanlon got a peek of what looked like a rudder through the home's crawlspace shortly after buying it in 2010, but she didn't anticipate the size and scope of the boat.It's built from 3-inch-thick wooden plants and is held together with 18-inch iron nails.
That s the premise behind a gorgeous new piece of decor from the custom woodworkers at Luno called the EGB2.The salt and pepper speaker screens alone courtesy of Marshall are enough to recall the smooth melodies delivered by the record consoles of old, and it should go without saying this thing will really tie the room together.Beneath the EGB2 s rich wooden exterior rests a brilliant collection of peripheral components, old and new, to keep you and your guests entertained and impressed — and inebriated, if that s the way the wind blows.Those include a pull-out mini bar, capped with four gold-rimmed tumblers, and enough storage space for four bottles of the good stuff.Adding to the fun is a three-band tone control system — with classic push-button controls — and the system is powered by a 200-watt class D amplifier.Each channel offers a 6.5-inch woofer matched by a silk dome tweeter Luno doesn t list the brand, unfortunately , and there are also dual aux inputs to plug in an exterior device and a lower shelf with storage space for 150 of your favorite records.
