Giant Chocolate-Covered Rock Candy Geodes Months in the Making

by Christopher Jobson

Six months in the making, these enormous chocolate-covered rock candy geodes are the creation of culinary students Alex Yeatts and Abby Lee Wilcox, the results of a final project for the Culinary Institute of America in New York. Details are scarce on how the duo went about creating the giant sugar rocks, some of which have the distinct hue of purple amethyst. The calorie count is also elusive, but we can only imagine it equates to the years these things take to form in real life. (via Sploid)

Places You Can Live for Under $1000 a Month

by Jill Harness

You probably know that the cost of living can vary from country to country and while income often goes down as the cost of living goes down, some people can earn the same income no matter where they live. If you are lucky enough to be in that second category, you might find your money will stretch a lot further in the countries featured in Travel and Leisure's list of countries you can live comfortably in for under $1000 a month.

How To Live On A Boat Without Leaving The City

by Zeon Santos

Living on a boat is a dream shared by very few people, since the accomodations are tight, the amenities are few and the comforts of home are lacking, but it does beat sleeping on the streets.

However, if you've always dreamed of living that boat life then it may surprise you to hear that you can actually live on a boat without leaving the city- and it may be cheaper than renting.

But before you stop homing or apartmenting and start boating you need to find out a few things, firstly whether you have access to slips or moorings or both, and whether it's legal to liveaboard in your city.

Docks are expensive but they often have electricity and water hookups, and access to bathrooms and showers and such, while moorings are cheap but leave you far from shore.

Once you figure out the legality and location of your boat life adventure you have to decide one more thing- whether to rent or buy a boat.

There are many boat owners out there who are willing to rent out their docked boats to tenants, but your new boatlord may cut your life at sea short if they choose to evict. On the other hand buying a new floating home can cost you some serious coin...

Can we?

Saint Lucia

Air Transat has dropped the price of one of their non-stop flights from Toronto to the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia in February 2018 down to $374 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

Update @ 11:00 AM EST - Looks like they are now $464.

Availability for travel

Feb 2018

Here's how to find this deal...

1. Go to Flighthub

2. Search for a flight from Toronto to Hewandorra, Saint Lucia (UVF)

Try the following date combination:

Feb 18 to Feb 25

screenshot from Flighthub



Where to stay on St. Lucia?

The map below will show you some great deals on accommodations in St. Lucia for under $99 CAD/night for 2 people.

I've found that Saint Lucia is one of the few Caribbean islands with a high number of reasonably priced Airbnb accommodations.

The average price per night is still quite high ($275 CAD), but there are so many Airbnb rentals, that it's pretty easy to find well-reviewed places being offered for $50 to $85 CAD per night for 2 people.

Architect Ricardo Bofill’s Abandoned Cement Factory Residence and Studio

by Kate Sierzputowski

In 1973 Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill stumbled upon a cement factory in Catalonia, Spain, an enormous compound of silos and buildings that covered nearly two and a half miles of underground tunnels. Bofill decided to buy The World War I era structure and its grounds, making modifications to the original structure in order to create an all-inclusive live/work space that would unite the Surrealist, Abstract, and Brutalist elements found in its industrial form.

Original construction to transform the sprawling series of buildings took a little over a year and a half. After the dust cleared from the jack hammers and dynamite, Catalan craftsmen worked to add gardens and purpose back into the abandoned compound. Today the factory holds a cathedral, model workshop, archive rooms, residence, and studio, a workspace for Bofill’s firm spread over four floors in the factory’s silos and connected by a spiral staircase.

Despite over forty years in the making, the entire project is constantly evolving and is one that Bofill never sees as being fully completed. With continuous tweaks, Bofill has created a perfectly programmed existence, a ritualized lifestyle that goes against his previously nomadic early life.

“I have the impression of living in a precinct, in a closed universe which protects me from the outside and everyday life,” said Bofill on his website. “The Cement Factory is a place of work par excellence. Life goes on here in a continuous sequence, with very little difference between work and leisure.”

You can see more images of the garden-covered structures on Bofill’s website, and see a short Nowness documentary on his studio and residence below. (via Designboom)

[Google Play] Kairosoft Co.,Ltd Game Sale, $1.69 CAD for Multiple Games

by SpazMan
If you're a mobile gamer, you're likely to have heard of Kairosoft before as making some of the most addicting premium mobile games on the marketplace. Their roots began with developing "Game Dev Story" (on PC in Japanese, I believe, later turned mobile) which has spurred quite a few other games of the same genre. This morning I awoke to several of their games on sale, even two recent releases.

Here's the Kairosoft developer page, should you want to browse all their offerings (most are not on sale, from what I see, but you can always try their Lite versions to get a free taste).
As far as I can see, here are the games up on discount:

Game Dev Story - Regular $2.80 USD, for $0.99 USD ($1.09 CAD)
Dungeon Village - Regular $4.99 USD, for $1.25 USD ($1.69 CAD)
Hot Springs Story - Regular $4.99 USD, for $1.25 USD ($1.69 CAD)
Pocket Arcade Story - Regular $4.99 USD, for $1.25 USD ($1.69 CAD)
The Manga Works - Regular $4.99 USD, for $1.25 USD ($1.69 CAD)

5 small towns to visit three hours from Toronto

by Derek Flack

small town ontarioIf you drive the roads of Ontario long enough, you might pronounce the province just "bush land, scrub land." There's so much granite beyond Toronto, one rejoices to arrive at a hamlet carved out of the earth. Spread along the back roads, you might find a temporary home and have "some opinion of what beauty is."

Here are my picks for 5 small towns worth visiting within a three hour drive of Toronto.

Napanee
Forget Avril and the Hell Holes sign off the 401 exit, after you pass the Tim Hortons and McDonalds on Centre St., Napanee is the most quaint river-side place. Sit on the long patio at the Waterfront River Pub and Terrace and wonder why you don't leave Toronto often enough.

Grand Bend
Go to Grand Bend for the Beach, stay for the party. This is one of the chief shirt-less zones in Ontario, and after the sun goes down, the bars on Main St. are as raucous as King West. Failing that dubious distinction, the bike trail that runs just off the shore is one of the best Ontario.

Campbellford
It's all about chocolate and beer in Campbellford. This is a town with a great farmers' market, arts scene, and culinary culture that downtown foodies dream of. Ferris Provincial Park is immediately adjacent to the main drag in case you require a quite injection of nature.

Bala
Port Carling attracts all the tourists, but Bala is where it's at. Just south of the major tourist action, here you might linger at Bala Falls before eating breakfast at Don's Bakery. The Kee to Bala remains a big deal up here some 75 years after its inauguration.

Port Dover
Lake Erie tends to be under-appreciated by Toronto folks, but much to our detriment. Port Dover as a town is as quaint as they come, but the beach is five stars. In other words, bring your bathing suit. The waterfront is positively bumping in the summer months as the crowds take advantage of the warm waters and small-town hospitality.

What's your favourite small town within three hours of Toronto. Let us know in the comments.

US CONGRESSMAN FAILS IN BID TO ESTABLISH MINIMUM SEAT SIZE

by Admin
US CONGRESSMAN FAILS IN BID TO ESTABLISH MINIMUM SEAT SIZE

US congressman, Steve Cohen, failed in an attempt to establish a minimum seat size standard on passenger aircrafts.

 

Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tennessee, introduced the “Seat Egress Air Travel (SEAT) act’ in a bid to have the Federal Aviation Administration establish a minimum seat size standard. However, last Thursday, the House Transportation panel voted to ground the bill.

 

Mr Cohen says that seat width has shrunk from 18 inches in the 1970s to approximately 16.5 inches today. Meanwhile, American backsides have most certainly widened. As for seat pitch (the distance from one point of a seat to the same point on the seat in front), the congressman claims that also has shrunk from 35 inches to around 31 inches. “Shrinking seat sizes isn’t just a matter of comfort but safety and health as well” he said.

 

Cohen announced he will attempt to push the proposal in a stand-alone bill.
