Pocket-sized personal transporters could soon be seen on the streets of Tokyo

The slender WalkCar is made from aluminum and weighs between two and three kilograms (4.4 to 6.6 pounds), depending on whether it is an indoor or outdoor version.

Saito expects to see many other uses for his transporter, as he says it has enough power to help people push wheelchairs with ease. The lightweight aluminum board is stronger than it looks, and can take loads of up to 120kg (265 pounds).

It reaches top speeds of 10 kilometers per hour (6.2 miles per hour), for distances of up to 12 kilometers (7.4 miles) after three hours of charging.

Castelvetrano

Castelvetrano olives are Italy’s most ubiquitous snack olive. Bright green, they’re often referred to as dolce (sweet), and come from Castelvetrano, Sicily, from the olive variety nocerella del belice. They have a Kermit-green hue, meaty, buttery flesh, and a mild flavor. Consider serving them with sheep’s milk cheese and a crisp white wine.

(These look like the olives I took to Isaac’s house with brie and sourdough bread.  Heaven.)

Recipe for success! Chicago restaurant named best in the world for a FOURTH year running

  • Best restaurant in the world is Grant Achatz’s Alinea, Chicago
  • The awards are voted for by readers of Elite Traveler magazine 
  • The US has 19 of the best restaurants in the world, followed by France which boasts 14 and the UK, which has a mere eight

———————————————————-

Achatz’s culinary origins, however, are surprisingly humble. He first started cooking when he was a kid, helping his mom and dad at their diner in Michigan.

About This Course

24 lectures  |  45 minutes per lecture

By December 1791, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart had written the defining compositions in every available musical genre of his time: symphony, chamber music, masses, and—above all—opera. Opera was the prestige genre of the time, and Mozart loved it dearly and counted on it heavily for personal, professional, artistic, and financial reasons. Just the thought of opera, as Mozart wrote, made him “beside myself at once.”

The world of the operatic stage spoke deeply to his primal instinct for play, his taste for fantasy, and his restless creative imagination.

Mozart’s operas vie with each other to be considered among the greatest achievements of human artistic striving:
