Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain

No small beer: in August it performed to a sold-out crowd at the BBC Proms music festival at the Royal Albert Hall.

Sarah Lyall's New York Times Arts section front page story yesterday was accompanied by a slide show.

Or just sit back and enjoy the music.

Richard Feynman's 1964 Lectures Now Online

From Terry Tao: "Seven videotaped lectures from 1964 by Richard Feynman given at Cornell, on 'The Character of Physical Law,'  have recently been put online ... with a number of multimedia enhancements (external links, subtitles, etc.). These lectures, intended for a general audience, broadly cover the same type of material that is in his famous lectures on physics.

id•this — 'Human-powered identification of anything or anyone'

Interesting site forwarded last evening by the inimitable Joe Peach.

The caption for the photo above: "Hwy. 41 between Marquette and Negaunee, Michigan, in the 90s, and a storage facility. Was known locally as the 'Shootey Rocket.' What is it? A carnival ride?"

Automatic Odor Remediator

Yfuuw

From the website:

•••••••••••••••••••••••

Automatic Odor Remediator

Using the same technology found in casinos and five-star hotels, this is the most effective home odor-eliminating device available.

The device automatically releases an invisible dry mist of odor-eliminating microdroplets that are 100 times smaller and 1,000,000 times lighter than aerosol mist droplets.

Unlike aerosol or plug-in sprays that quickly fall to the floor, the lightweight microdroplets remain airborne for up to 14 hours and drift to all corners of a room, eliminating unpleasant odors produced by tobacco smoke, cooked food or any foul smell, replacing it with a pleasant, subtle scent.

The device covers up to 10,000 cubic feet (the equivalent of a 35' x 35' space with 8' ceilings), neutralizing bad smells in two or three adjacent rooms.

About the size of a box of tissues, the device sets up unobtrusively on a table.

Includes one fragrance cartridge that lasts up to 60 days (specify Pine, Lavender-Herb, or Citrus-Mint).

5-1/2"W x 5-1/4"D x 5-1/2"H.


Plugs into AC.

$199.95.
