THIS IS WATER

THIS IS WATER

English subtitles now available. We’re working on subtitles in additional languages. Thanks!

In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. However, the resulting speech didn’t become widely known until 3 years later, after his tragic death. It is, without a doubt, some of the best life advice we’ve ever come across, and perhaps the most simple and elegant explanation of the real value of education.

We made this video, built around an abridged version of the original audio recording, with the hopes that the core message of the speech could reach a wider audience who might not have otherwise been interested. However, we encourage everyone to seek out the full speech (because, in this case, the book is definitely better than the movie).

Ex-Military Bio-Environmental Engineer | Kristen Meghan | Blows Whistle On Air Force | Chemtrails

At the 2013 Atlanta Music Liberty Fest, Kristen Meghan, former Air Force Bio-Environmental Engineer gave a ground breaking presentation of what she had discovered about Chemtrails while serving her Country. This BRAVE young lady has put her livelihood / life on the line for U.S. Please take a minute to thank her and help U.S. by redistributing this Video and any other VALID information about Chemtrails to as many people as you can! This is a GLOBAL issue, other countries must get this information as well. "they" are spraying the majority of the population… Why?

Sapphire Screen: The Making Of A Scratch-Proof Smartphone Display

Sapphire Screen: The Making of A Scratch-Proof Smartphone Display

If you followed our coverage from MWC in Barcelona, you might remember a demo by Jeff Nestel-Patt of GT Advanced Technologies, showcasing a smartphone display 2.5 times stronger than Gorilla Glass that was, for all intents and purposes, impervious to scratches. If you missed that video, maybe you caught our article from last week discussing sapphire’s importance to the future of the mobile industry. If you missed both of those, then you’re still in luck – because this piece right here trumps them both.

You see, it turns out that the GT Crystal Systems facility at which much of the aforementioned sapphire is manufactured sits just up the road from Pocketnow’s Boston offices in Salem, MA. So Jeff, being the nice guy that he is, invited us for a visit to get a feel for just how sapphire smartphone displays are made. And since we like science and smartphones, and really like it when those two fields intersect in a way we can photograph, we packed our camera and went for a ride …
