teamepiphany: Virtual supermarkets are popping up in subway stations in South Korea, where commuters can virtually shop for items while waiting for the train to come. Customers simply scan an item’s QR code using the free “Homeplus” app and can have it delivered to their doorstep before they even get home.

Donald Glover talking about the comments he received during his campaign to be the next Spider-Man (x)“I was talking about it with Dan Eckman, who directed my Bonfire video. Can you imagine that trailer? That would be dope. Like it makes sense… a poor black kid in Queens. Like it just fits.”
Warren Andrews had just finished putting up balloons for his stepdaughter’s 18th birthday party at their suburban home in Mayflower, Arkansas, when his wife came inside and said something was wrong. After stepping out of his house, and taking one glance, he immediately dialed 911.
“I don’t know what’s going on, but I’ve got a river of oil coming down the street at me,” Andrews told the operator. Five minutes later, the slick of noxious black crude spewing from a ruptured Exxon Mobil pipeline was eight feet wide, six inches deep and growing fast.
In this photo, spilled oil from Exxon pipeline runs through a neighborhood in Mayflower, Arkansas on March 29, 2013. Reuters was recently given access to the photo from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Exxon is refusing to let reporters anywhere near the accident. They’re also controlling the airspace above the spill. They don’t want you to see what’s happening. TOO BAD, EXXON.

I opened up the bottle and inside was a stream
I opened up the stream and inside were the stones
My homegirl sick wit it

Someone we all should know……David Adjaye.
David Adjaye (born 1966) is a world renown, prize-winning architect who was born in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, Africa. Adjaye currently lives and base his firm in London but maintains a home in New York City. He is undoubtedly one of the world’s preeminent living architects. His resume include designing both private and public structures on nearly every continent including the Harlem Affordable Housing Complex in Sugar Hill, NYC (shown above, first two photos) and The Pavilion for Miami Design and well as the Francis George Library in Washington, DC (shown above, last two photos). The Pritzker Prize is the “Oscar” of the architecture world, awarded annually to a sole architect for recognition of their body of work and many believe that Adjaye will be the first person of African descent to be awarded the Pritzker.
