21 Of The Most Beautiful Japanese Cherry Blossom Photos Of 2014

by Lina

The delicate pink sakura, or cherry blossom, is associated primarily with the culture of its native Japan. These trees blossom throughout Japan every spring, but their beauty never gets old, so we’ve collected some of our favorite photos of this year’s cherry blossoms in Japan.

In Japan, the blossoming of the sakura begins in April, when students go back to school or people go back to work after the holidays. Japan’s national weather service even tracks the movement of the “sakura front,” which is an imaginary line that travels south-to-north every season and heralds the blooming of the sakura. This line’s progression in Japan is marked on this convenient sakura calendar.

The cherry blossom is tied to the ancient Japanese tradition of hanami, or picnicking under a sakura tree. The fact that the cherry blossom has heavily featured in ancient Japanese art has made it a staple of both historical and modern Japanese aesthetic. Although it is also native to China and Korea, it is generally associated primarily with Japanese culture, which is why it often accompanies the Japanese diaspora into cities around the world.

While sakuras are probably best viewed with a Japanese castle, mountain or garden in the backdrop, they might also be planted somewhere in your city as well. They provide a great opportunity to go have a beautiful springtime picnic!

Unsurprisingly, a novel about a time-traveling Hitler is a source of controversy

by Andrew McGrath

“Summer 2011. Berlin. Adolf Hitler wakes up on a patch of ground, alive and well.”

It’s not the setup to some juvenile joke; it’s the setup to a best-selling novel: Timur Vermes’s Look Who’s Back, due out in English in April from MacLehose Press.Look Who's Back

Look Who’s Back opens on Adolf Hitler waking up in a park in modern Berlin, unchanged since World War Two. A local mistakes him for an actor in a World War Two film who refuses to break character and, praising his performance, sets him up at a local comedy club where he is the opening act for a Turkish-German comedian. He launches into exactly the sort of rant you would expect from Hitler. Instead of ruining him, however, his rant makes him a YouTube sensation. Newspapers start interviewing him thinking he’s a dedicated actor examining 21st century morals and eventually he gets a stint as a pundit, before making a move back into politics.

The novel sold 1.4 million copies in Germany but gathered a lot of controversy: critics claimed that the book trivializes Hitler’s crimes. In the U.S., where he was already a YouTube hit and the star of his own comic, a satirical novel about Hitler might not seem like a big deal. In Germany, where Holocaust denial and public displays of Nazi commemoration are illegal, it’s a touchier subject. Vermes has defended the book, however, telling German media:

“The fact is we have too much of a stereotype of Hitler. He’s always the monster and we can be comforted by the fact that we’re different from him. But in reality he continues to spark real fascination in people, just as he did back then when people liked him enough to help him commit crimes.”

Others don’t take issue with Hitler as fodder, but see the book as ineffective satire. Daniel Erk described the book as “Easily accessible, not elaborate, more like a cheap joke.”

Warm - SHOP.CA - Digital Humidifier - Perma Filter - $109

by AFG786
Was in the market for a humidifier after my last one burned down. This seems perfect as it is digital, has a permanent filter and is quite affordable. There are good reviews for it on the manufacturer's site, amazon.ca, amazon.com, etc.

$130-$140 everywhere else I checked. I had some discounts left on SHOP so I ended up scoring it for under $100 including cash back.

Edit: Don't forget to go through ebates or GCR for 3% back.

Over The Counter Eye Drops: Refreshing Or Bad For Eyes?

torp8719

Moisturizing drops are fine, Visine is not. :/

My eyes have always been slightly dry. They feel dusty in the morning when I wake up, and turn red the instant I get something in them, which, when you have a rabbit who sheds, means they always have something in them. It also takes about an hour for my eyes to turn white again after a shower, and I worry that people at work think I’m stoned. A few years ago, when looking at my red eyes in the mirror, I had an idea: DUH. I could just use Visine in the morning after my shower. Every morning.

It worked great for awhile. I started carrying Visine in my purse and using it whenever my eyes felt dry at work, or whenever redness set in. I couldn’t believe I’d never noticed just how often my eyes were red! It was way more than I’d realized. Thank god for Visine, I thought.

Until...Visine didn’t work for me anymore. I bought the strongest kind I could find—my eyes would whiten, then turn red again a few hours later. About this time, I went to my optometrist to get my prescription checked. During the exam, I casually mentioned that my eyes were red all the time. My optometrist examined my eyes.

“Do you use redness-relieving eye-drops? Like Visine or Clear Eyes?” he asked.

I nodded. “Ohhhh yes. All the time.”

“You’re addicted to them. You need to stop using them immediately. Eye-drops like Visine actually make redness worse in the long run.”

“What? Seriously? Wait, but my eyes are so red.”

“They’re going to be red for a few weeks until they heal,” he said. “No more eye drops, okay Krista? Not even artificial tears. Not ever, not at all. Throw your Visine away. Your eyes will whiten normally if you leave them alone. But they’re going to be red for a little while while they get off the chemicals in Visine.”

I opened up my purse, pulled out the tiny Visine bottle, and dropped it in the trash can ceremoniously. He smiled. “Good. Don’t let me see you with that crap again.”

After two weeks of explaining my chronically red eyes to everyone, my eyes healed. I haven’t needed to use drops since.

But was it just me? I see all my friends carrying Visine and Clear Eyes and cute little bottles of Rohto (a newer, extra-refreshing-feeling eye drop), and I wondered, if almost everyone uses eye-drops: are they helping or hurting?

Dr. Rajesh Khanna M.D., a doctor passionate about eye care with a book out called The Miracle of Pi in Eye with a chapter dedicated to dry eyes, sets the record straight here.

How Eye Drops Work...And The Side Effects

Dr. Khanna says that redness-relieving eye-drops can actually cause more harm than good. “Visine’s main chemical is a vasoconstrictor, which will constrict blood flow in the outer blood vessels of the eye. Every time you use it, the blood vessels constrict, but when you stop using it, the blood rebounds. It’s a vicious cycle.” And it gets worse—you can get addicted to eye drops. “These products are being driven by marketing,” says Dr. Khanna. It turns out there are two types of tears in the eyes: basal and reflex. He explains further: “There’s a pump in the eye called the lacrimal pump, which produces basal tears 24/7—these flow across the eye, where the lid spreads the tears like windshield wipers. These are the tears you need all the time. In order to have healthier eyes, we need to improve the amount of basal tears. The other type of tear is the reflex tear, which we get when our eyes react to something, like wind striking the eye. This new eye-drop, Rohto, which gives a very cool, refreshing feeling—that feeling is happening because the ingredients in Rohto are irritating the eye, causing lots of reflex tears very suddenly.”

Should You Ever Use Eye Drops?

When I posed the question to him, he replied “Only if you’re going on national TV and you don’t want to appear drunk.” So no. In Dr. Khanna’s eyes, you just shouldn’t use them. That goes for those who wear contacts and/or always have dry eyes. It’s worth noting that Khanna isn’t a fan of contacts for eye health, in general. “Because contact lenses are a foreign body in the eye, they move and irritate the eye every time you blink. There are a lot of incidents of infection resulting from contacts,” he explains.

So What Can You Do To Fight Redness and Irritation?

Whether you wear contacts or not—everyone can benefit from some simple eye care. Try to minimize the amount of wind that hits your eyes, and don’t sit in front of air conditioners. At the end of the day, splash cool water over the eyes to help wash away any irritants. “That alone can take care of a lot of allergens causing redness,” says Dr. Khanna. And because the cells in the eyes are constantly being replaced, it’s important to keep a healthy diet. “Try to eat lots of green, leafy vegetables, kale, almonds, carrots—lots of beta-carotene rich fruits and vegetables,” explains Dr. Khanna. And if your eyes continue to stay red and dry for weeks at a time, Dr. Khanna suggests seeing a cornea-trained doctor who knows how to treat dry eyes.

Amazon.ca - Various Spigen Nexus 5 cases - 12.99 and up

by pnyknights
While searching around the interwebs for a case for my new nexus 5, I came across Spigen Amazon store.

Most mention 15% select cases. Discount shown at final order review, although I'm not quite sure if its restrictions need some clarification. (ie buy two eligible cases, only get one discount)
One that really stood out is the Ultra hybrid which is 50% off and comes with a screen protector

The Black Slim Armor is $17 and the Gold is $20, both eligible for amazon free shipping >$25
The white version is also $20 but $7 to ship.
Still a good discount on the first two as they are usually $25 from manuf site.

If only the Slim Armor view would come down in price I'd jump on that....stormtropper FTW :)
