The blue poison dart frog or blue poison arrow frog, Dendrobates “azureus”, is a poison dart frog found in the  forests surrounded by the Sipaliwini savannah, which is located in southern Suriname and adjacent far northern Brazil. D. “azureus” is a medium-sized frog that weighs about 8 grams and grows to 3.0-4.5 cm in length.  The frog has a typical lifespan of four to six years in the wild. Its bright blue skin, usually darker around its  limbs and stomach, serves as a warning to predators. Although poison dart frogs are known for their skin toxins; in captivity,  the frogs lose toxicity as a result of altered diets.

VIEVU² body worn video camera can take quite a licking

There are normal video cameras that all-action folks wear in order to record their adventures for posterity so that they need not explain with words all over again to a new group of friends each time, but rather, let the video recording itself do the talking. Then again, there is another class of video cameras altogether that feature a rugged exterior that is capable of handling a fair amount of abuse without batting an eyelid. The VIEVU² is one particular wearable video camera that falls under the latter category, where it is touted to be the first ruggedized, body worn video (BWV) camera that will target the “prosumers”/professional workforce, using the very same military-grade technology that law enforcement/government agencies utilize.

The VIEVU² will target professionals including private security, contractors, insurance adjusters, facilities maintenance, fleet management, inspectors and technicians, among others, as it captures video that is ideal for protection against erroneous accountability/liability claims, property protection, as well as mitigating workplace theft; C-level, other executives including Human Resource reps are able to rely on the VIEVU² to document meetings and other important employee interactions.

Since the VIEVU² is milled from a solid block of aluminum, that kind of physical make up enables it to withstand the bumps/bruises of your daily grind, not to mention its ability to be worn on a belt, lapel, pocket, or other places that bulkier cameras will not fit in at all. Weekend warriors, too, will find the VIEVU² to be the ideal companion as it works great for hiking, biking, skiing and other kinds of fun physical activity.

When paired with an iPhone or Android mobile app, it will be able to perform view-finding, framing and editing, and is easy uploadable to YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Dropbox, email, or text accounts. The VIEVU² will do all of its recording in HD video (1080p) with 90 minutes of recording time, and will also connect to 802.11g/n Wi-Fi networks.Vievu body video camera

Photos of Animal Parents with their Kids…

Nothing could match the love of a parent and their children.

This is not only true for us, as humans, but for most of the animals in the world as well.

Parents are there to provide for us, guide us and teach us about the world around us.

Here are the 25 cutest moments that parents in the animal kingdom have shared with their offspring.

GOD’S “PHONE” NUMBER

This is Beautiful . PLEASE SEND IT TO EVERYONE YOU LOVE, INCLUDING ME.

Hello God, I called tonight
To talk a little while
I need a friend who’ll listen
To my anxiety and trial.


You see, I can’t quite make it
Through a day just on my own…
I need your love to guide me
So I’ll never feel alone.

I want to ask you please to keep
My family safe and sound.
Come and fill their lives with confidence
For whatever fate they’re bound.

Give me faith, dear God, to face
Each hour throughout the day,
And not to worry over things
I can’t change in any way.

I thank you God for being home
And listening to my call,
For giving me such good advice
When I stumble and fall.. !!!!!!!

Your number, God, is the only one
That answers every time.
I never get a busy signal,
Never had to pay a dime.

So thank you, God, for listening
To my troubles and my sorrow.
Good night, God, I love You, too,
And I’ll call again tomorrow!
P.S. Please bless all my friends and family too.

Send this to anyone that you love and care about.

Let them know God is there for them.

Homemade All Purpose Floor Cleaner Recipe

When we moved into our new home a couple years ago, we debated quite a bit about floor selection: Carpet vs hardwood. Each of them has pros and cons. In the end, we put hardwood floor except for the rooms. Now we understand that you need to clean hardwood floor pretty frequently. Even a little dust or liquid make the floor look dirty. Here is a recipe we have found quite effective in clean hardwood floors. With this hardwood cleaner recipe, you can make you own hardwood cleaner easily at home. Here are what you will need for this cleaner

  • a cup of water
  • a cup of vinegar
  • a cup of alcohol
  • 2-3 drops of dish soap

Baking Soda Dough

Baking Soda Dough

Ingredients
◦2 cups baking soda
◦1 cup cornstarch…
◦1 1/4 cup water

 

Directions
Step 1
Combine all the ingredients in a pot and heat on medium heat.
Step 2
Continue to constantly stir the ingredients until the mixture begins to thicken. It will take several minutes to thicken.
Step 3
When the mixture starts to come together and looks like mash potatoes, scoop it out onto a Silpat mat or parchment paper to cool down. Cover it with a damp cloth.
Step 4
Once the dough is cool enough to handle, you can roll it out to approximately 1/4″ thickness and use cookie cutters, stamps, shape by hand, or whatever method you want to use to decorate your cut-outs.
Step 5
Bake at 175F for 45 minutes to an hour. Baking will make the ornaments turn a slightly tan color. *If you don’t plan on painting the ornaments and want to keep them white, air dry for 2-4 days.*
Step 6
Let the dough cool and you’re ready to decorate.

Cumulonimbus Cloud over Africa

Cumulonimbus Cloud over Africa - seen on www.eposvriende.co.za

Perhaps the most impressive of cloud formations, cumulonimbus (from the Latin for “pile” and “rain cloud”)
clouds form due to vigorous convection (rising and overturning) of warm, moist, and unstable air.

Surface air is warmed by the Sun-heated ground surface and rises;
if sufficient atmospheric moisture is present, water droplets will condense as the air mass encounters
cooler air at higher altitudes.

The air mass itself also expands and cools as it rises due to decreasing atmospheric pressure, a process known as adiabatic cooling.
This type of convection is common in tropical latitudes year-round and during the summer season at higher latitudes.
As water in the rising air mass condenses and changes from a gas to a liquid state, it releases energy to its surroundings,
further heating the surrounding air and leading to more convection and rising of the cloud mass to higher altitudes.

This leads to the characteristic vertical “towers” associated with cumulonimbus clouds, an excellent example of
which is visible in this astronaut photograph. If enough moisture is present to condense and heat the cloud
mass through several convective cycles, a tower can rise to altitudes of approximately 10 kilometers at high latitudes
and to 20 kilometers in the tropics before encountering a region of the atmosphere known as the tropopause—
the boundary between the troposphere and the stratosphere. For more info, visit NASA Goddard Space Flight Center on Flickr.

Onewheel is a self-balancing skateboard that will let you soar on the streets

Riding a bicycle or skateboard to and from your destinations is an environmentally friendly and healthy way to travel. However, not everyone possesses the skills necessary to balance themselves atop two wheels or a board. If you like the idea, but don’t think it’s possible for you, then you’ve likely looked into some other people-mover options that can balance themselves, and don’t require gas for fuel.

The Onewheel is one such option, but is far more portable and looks cooler than a Segway. This resembles a skateboard, but only has one go-kart type wheel in the middle. It can balance itself, and thanks to it’s cushy wheel you won’t feel any bumps or protuberances while on the road or sidewalk. Those who have ridden it say it’s similar to riding on a wave or fresh snow. It’s capable of going up to twelve miles per hour, and your speed is controlled by leaning forward or backward. Should you choose, you can even go in reverse!

It only takes 2 hours to recharge, and as it is minute-for-minute recharging, I assume that’s also its battery life. There is a fast charging cable available that will juice up the Onewheel in about 20 minutes, but it will undoubtedly cost more. It has a weight limit of around 250 pounds, and can’t go on an incline larger that 10%, as the front of the board goes down to move forward. This will cost you around $1,400.
