    Lithuanian artist Severija Inčirauskaitė-Kriaunevičienė uses cross-stitch embroidery to adorn metallic objects such as plates, spoons, pot lids, lamps, rusty tin cans, pails and shovels, even automobiles. Some of her pieces feature traditional floral motifs while others are much more unusual and playful - the ashtray appears to contain stubbed out ends of cigarettes. The spoon reflects the mouth of the person about to eat from it.

    Visit Severija’s website to check out many more examples of her awesome embroidery.

    after an apparent attack by a fox, a street cat named bob was found injured and curled up in the hallway outside of a support housing flat in tottenham were james bowen, a recovering heroin addict and homeless busker, was staying. james took the cat in, got him to the rspca, and nursed him back to health using what little drug money he had for antibiotics.

    but in the process, bob helped to nurse james back to health as well, giving him a reason to get up in the morning and get clean. since his recovery, bob has refused to leave james side, following him everywhere for the last six years.

    thanks to a literary agent who passed him on the streets, james has since written an international bestselling book about his hardships and friendship with bob. “we’re two injured souls looking for someone we can trust,” james says. done in collaboration with the writer garry jenkins from an islington café, the book also attempts to dispel some of the social stigma that goes with homelessness.

    How To Read A 223-Page Novel In Just 77 Minutes 

    Spritz is a company that makes a speed-reading technology which allows you to get through a mass of text, reading every word, in a fraction of the time it would take if you were turning the pages of a book or swiping through a Kindle.

    The basis of Spritz concept is that much of the time spend reading is “wasted” on moving your eyes from side to side, from one word to the next. By flashing the words quickly, one after the other, all in the same place, eye movement is reduced almost to zero. All that’s left is the time you take to process the word before the next one appears.

    The company is selling licenses for other companies who might want to use the technology in operating systems, applications, wearables, and websites. Obviously, the tiny screen of a smart watch instantly springs to mind.

    But the real revelation of Spritz is in trying it yourself.

    i really hope this gets adapted as an ebook reader for android relatively soon :(

    i might even buy a fricken kindle if they incorporated it

    i just really want it for reading ebooks

    Some of my students have showed me this, and it seems really interesting. It might be helpful for people who have difficulty paying attention to a single task at a time or who have visual processing issues and can’t look at a book without their head swimming.

    Don’t know how much of the book they’d actually absorb, and it certainly isn’t for everyone (just looking at it makes me want to claw my eyes out, I don’t even want to know what it would do to students with epilepsy) but it’s certainly interesting.
