Man finds 22,000 Roman coins in Devon and spends 3 nights sleeping on site to guard hoard
An amateur metal detectorist has unearthed one of the largest hoards of Roman coins ever found in Britain. Laurence Egerton, 51, made the discovery as he explored land near Seaton, in East Devon - and he was so concerned someone would steal it, he camped out for three nights while archaeologists excavated the site. Dubbed Seaton Down Hoard, the collection of 22,000 copper-alloy coins is thought to have been buried by a private individual or soldier for safe keeping, but was never recovered.

Snake Robot Climbs a Tree
From the Biorobotics Lab at Carnegie Mellon University, a snake robot (Snakebot) demonstrates how it can climb a tree and look around. Please keep in mind that this robot climbed a specific tree with a specific trunk width about 1 meter off of the ground. The researchers working to design, build and program these robots still have much work to do to get these bots to climb taller trees of various sizes and to navigate over branches and wires.
The Rose Wine Guide
There are two factors that differentiate Rosé wine from Blush wine. The sweetness and that Rosé wine must be made from red wine only. Often called Rosato or Rosado wine, the one thing that makes blush and rosé wine the very same is that regardless of what they’re called, they’re all pink. It’s by using just a small amount of the color from the grape skins that gives the wine it’s pink color. The actual darkness or clarity of the color is based on how long the skins are in contact with the juice....
The Pocket Watch Primer
Initially known as Nuremberg watches in the early 16th century, the first timepieces that transitioned from clocks were somewhere between the size of a mantle clock and a pocket watch. They were worn around the neck as a necklace or fastened to the attire of the gentleman in possession of it. Shaped like a cylindrical drum and then rounded like an egg, the brass boxes that told time were quite detailed and ornate. Rather than having a crystal or glass face, they would have a hinged cover made of...

The Choir: The Unity of Many
The human body is the oldest musical instrument. The clapping of hands, stamping of feet – all produce sound and, when matched with intentionality, “the power of minds to be about, to represent, or to stand for, things, properties and states of affairs”, are capable of representation, through mimicry, rhythm and repetition. But greater still than the limbs is the human voice, capable of sounds as mundane as coughing, yawning, and clicking, to more amazing ones, like whistling, speech and, for th...
The BBQ Grilling Guide — Gentleman's Gazette
Whether it’s grilling, barbecuing low and slow or smoking and curing, outdoor cooking has been a technique that men have turned to since the dawn of time. The idea of cooking over a hot fire induced salivation and thoughts of carnivorous delight. There is no cooking method more “manly” than grilling, but that doesn’t mean it has to be quick and sloppy. Grilling can produce some of the most savory and elegant dishes found in the world today, and here’s where we’ll celebrate them.

Fullerite: harder than diamond, and now made at room temperature
It sure does suck to be diamond, these days. It seems like a day doesn’t go by that we don’t hear of diamond being bested in some way — despite its millennia-long reign as the king of all sorts of physical properties, diamond has fallen behind in many ways. In terms of hardness, an entire class of materials called “ultra-hard” have the gemstone beat, and in the case of super materials like graphene, the margin is not small. Still, diamond does have one big advantage over all these new fangled sc...

NASA confirms new thruster could revolutionize space travel
When Roger Shawyer first unveiled his EmDrive thruster back around 2003, the scientific community laughed at him. They said it was impossible, that it was based on a flawed concept, and couldn’t work because it goes against the laws of conservation of momentum. But somehow, despite all of the reasons it shouldn’t work, it does. Scientists at NASA just confirmed it.

Sinquefield Cup: One of the most amazing feats in chess history just happened, and no one noticed.

The Evolution of Flying Ships
The invention of hydrofoils was one of the most revolutionary developments in the history of marine engineering. Hydrofoils are vessels that use wing-like foils below the hull in order to reach greater speeds on the water. The "wings" are submerged so that the hull can be above the water, which allows the boat to go much faster since water is about 1,000 times more dense than air.

I haven’t resorted to buying peeled garlic (yet!) and I recently just discovered a new garlic peeling trick at All you do is crush the cloves (they suggest using the heel of your hand, I use the flat of my knife) then dump them into a bowl.

Aksumite currency

Aksumite currency was the first native currency to be issued in Africa without direct control by an outside culture like the Romans or Greeks. It was issued and circulated from the middle of the height of the Kingdom of Aksum under King Endubis around AD 270 until it began its decline in the first half of the 7th century. No sub-Saharan state would mint coins after Aksum until the Kilwa Sultanate in the 10th century.

Aksum's currency served as a vessel of propaganda demonstrating the kingdom's wealth and promoting the national religion (first polytheistic and later Oriental Christianity), as well as facilitating the Red Sea trade on which it thrived. The coinage has also proved invaluable in providing a reliable chronology of Aksumite kings due to the lack of extensive archaeological work in the area.

Dark and dreamy - desire to inspire
I found this house on Urbis Magazine's website and fell in love immediately. It's dark and modern (but not overly) with lots of beautiful wood, marble and tile used throughout. It is a small 1860's worker's cottage from the front, now a guest house and man cave, and a glorious, dark-stained barn-like structure at the rear of the property. It is the best of both worlds - old and new combined.
