The Raspberry Pi Zero might be the smallest of the bunch , but you can also slim down a Pi 2 or Pi 3 pretty easily if you need that extra CPU but not the components. Node shows you how.
Node’s downsizing guide is actually sandwiched in the previously mentioned Nintendo DS-sized portable Linux machine project, but the component removal idea here is worth mentioning on its own. He desolders the...View more »
In a move that should surprise no one given the anti-affirmative action stance of the Trump administration, the Justice Department has come out in support of the students who are suing Harvard University over claims that its admissions policies discriminate against Asian American applicants.
The lawsuit, which is spearheaded by Edward Blum—the conservative activist who worked with Abigail...View more »
Diversity and representation are the hot-button topics in Hollywood right now. In an industry that reflects the world in which we live, black people and women—so, basically black women—are often underrepresented in Hollywood. But people like Tyler Perry are changing that. Sure, he’s a polarizing figure based on his content, but you can’t deny his ability and execution when it comes to hiring...View more »
Una de las razones por las que nunca me enganché a Minecraft es mi notoria ineptitud para diseñar edificios. No se me daban bien los Lego cuando era chico y no se me da bien el modo creativo de Minecraft con 29 años. Pero hay gente con estudios (y un talento nato) que sube la media.
Es el caso de Andrew McClure, el...View more »
At the age of 3, I’m not sure if I knew about college or Georgia, but I knew that my dad had returned from his business trip “down South” with a new shirt for me with S-P-E-L-M-A-N on the front, and I definitely knew how to throw my hands up to the Los Angeles sun (and smog), don a chubby-cheeked smile and pose for the camera. One hundred years after Spelman’s founding, I had heeded the call...View more »
LAS VEGAS—The thing nobody tells you about watching fights live is how quiet the arena can get.
When Hawaiian middleweight Brad Tavares took to the octagon to fight Canadian pretty boy Elias Theodorou during Friday night’s UFC event, the arena rumbled with Bruce Buffer’s sonorous yelps and the fighters’ respective walkup songs. Once the fight started, you could have heard a mouse fart. The...View more »
Darrin Bell draws editorial cartoons for the Washington Post Writers Group. He is also the creator of the comic strips "Rudy Park" and "Candorville."
This is how it happens when extraterrestrials make contact with Earth.
It starts with a newspaper report about suspicious activity at a space research facility—government agents and military vehicles. The local sheriff gets angry and confused. Then the TV news reports feature interviews with locals saying things like, “Nothing really happens here very much. And since nobody knows, it could be...View more »
Scifi, Fantasy, and mainstream nerd culture, isn't always the most accepting place for women (see: Gamergate, actually don't, it's super depressing). There's a Celluloid Ceiling for women in SciFi and Fantasy, and movies can't seem to get it together. Wonder Woman has to share her debut with a bunch of dudes, Nolan had Rachael Dawes explode in Dark Knight because she's so boring, and Black...View more »

Bitcoin ’s price may still be on the decline, but that hasn’t stopped some major companies from piling onto the cryptocurrency craze. Last month it was Kodak , and now Square (the mobile payments company created by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey) is jumping on the Bitcoin bandwagon, too.
Dorsey announced on Wednesday that Square Cash, the company’s answer to Venmo, will let you buy and sell...View more »
After a silly episode with a shocking ending Episode 4 “Shisui’s Request” is a more subdued affair serving as a primer on the relationship between Shisui and Itachi. For fans of the series this is a profoundly important episode as quite possibly with the exception of Sasuke nobody was more influential in Itachi’s life then Shisui. For some the first half of this episode could be considered...View more »
What’s often felt like an inconsistent and tumultuous season for rookie phenom Shohei Ohtani is shaping up to be a pretty damn impressive opening number. So much of Ohtani’s buzz quieted down when a ligament injury pulled him off the mound for most of the season, but while he’s been rehabbing in an attempt to pitch again before the year is done (he thinks he will), he’s remained remarkably...View more »
For Fish N’Chips Friday, I decided to show off my vintage Corgi Triumph TR3A “big mouth.”
This car is green with a red interior and has a racing style #7 on the hood. The body is accurate except for the windshield, which is too tall and is the wrong shape.
Interior detail is good considering the time frame. I believe this car was introduced into the range in 1957 or 1958, around the same time...View more »
