'Slumber Party Barbie' Diet Book From 1965 Offers Troubling Weight Loss Advice (PHOTOS) (Huffington post)
Many fad diets are based on ridiculous premises: eat lots of cabbage!; inject
yourself with hormones produced by pregnant women!; staple your ears!
Now, courtesy of a 1965-era Barbie, comes another outlandish idea to help keep
the pounds off: starvation. We've always known Mattel's iconic Barbie doll may
not be the most healthful source for advice on keeping a trim figure, but the
"Slumber Party Barbie," produced in the mid-1960s, really takes the cake.
Among the doll's accessories are a small plastic scale permanently set to 110
lbs., and a diet book titled "How To Lose Weight," because who doesn't go to a
sleepover without their diet book?

Lost 12 of 2012: Nedry In A Dim Light (drownedinsound)
...it feels rather like the inner workings of some vast machine - solid,
heavy, intricate, and tactile. The textures and patterns here are hypnotic,
and on higher volumes, truly punishing. It is most definitely of 2012, and I
mean that in the best way possible. It feels like the latest entry in a
nebulous timeline, the result of years of influences, from electronic music
and beyond. At the same time, whether intentionally or not, this menacing
whirlpool of a record feels apt for a year in which international fear and
confusion seemed to reach unprecedented levels.

Raspberry Pi Used To Replace A 30-Foot GSM Base Station And Create A Working Mobile Network (crunchgear?)
A Cambridge, U.K.-based consulting firm has managed to use the open source
Raspberry Pi computer to replicate the functions normally performed by a
30-foot GSM cellular basestation to create a fully functional mobile network.
Using two open source software programs, and a bit of off-the-shelf hardware
kit DIY enthusiasts can get their hands on fairly easily, PA Consulting rolled
their own mobile phone service.

Official: So Long, 3 Series: Concept 4 Series Coupe previews new two-door BMW (Autoblog)
Filed under: Detroit Auto Show, Coupe, BMW, Luxury
With the launch of the BMW 4 Series coupe, we can officially say goodbye to
the two-door 3 Series. As we've long reported, BMW is moving its coupe and
convertible models up one digit (like the 5 Series/6 Series relationship);
when the next-generation 1 Series launches in the States, it will actually be
called the 2 Series. And while there are certainly a lot of 3 Series aspects
to this new 4er, BMW says the new car "represents the zenith of a development
curve" and that the automaker "has given the new model its own individual
character and a standalone design."
Compared to the current 3 Series coupe, the 4 Series concept rides on a two-
inch-longer wheelbase, adds 1.7 inches of width, and is just over half an inch
shorter in height. The whole thing looks very sculpted and sleek, and there
are plenty of design elements from the larger 6 Series, as well. The full-LED
headlamps and aggressive lower fascia will certainly grab your attention, but
if we're honest, some of us prefer the simpler, cleaner lines of past 3 Series
models versus this somewhat ...

A winning vision for the future of urban mobility (MIT)
Architecture professor Meejin Yoon and her partner, Eric Höweler, have won the
Audi Urban Futures 2012 Award — a €100,000 prize ($132,142) — for their
proposal to create a new kind of transportation platform in the Boston to
The award was judged and presented as part of the Istanbul Design Biennial
Höweler+Yoon Architecture was one of five architectural offices asked to
develop a vision on future urban mobility for the competition, each focused on
the metropolitan region they call home.
For the region they nicknamed BosWash, Höweler and Yoon imagined a "Shareway"
that would merge all forms of transport into a single artery, piggy-backing a
new bundled high-speed rail infrastructural system on the existing interstate.
All modes of transport — commuter and freight trains, cars, bikes and
pedestrians — would coexist on a multi-level track that follows the 450-mile
route and connect to a ‘Superhub’ in Newark with an airport, seaport, rail
station and interstate intersection, along with parking and storage.
The proposal also includes house-sharing programs and a proposal to convert
vacant Baltimore land into agricultural fields.

College basketball preview: USF Bulls vs. George Mason Patriots (St. Petersburg Times)
**By Greg Auman, Times Staff Writer**
Friday, December 28, 2012
**USF vs.** **George Mason**
**When/where:** 7; Sun Dome, Tampa
**TV/radio:** BHSN; 98.7-FM, 1010-AM
**Records:** George Mason 7-4, USF 7-3
**Notable:** Three of George Mason's losses are against RPI top 50 teams. …
USF could be shorthanded in the post as senior forward Kore White sprained a
toe in practice. The Bulls have gone without guards Shaun Noriega and JaVontae
Hawkins in the past two weeks as well, with Martino Brock and Jawanza Poland
taking on more minutes as a result. … After having no players average double-
digit scoring last season, USF now has three, with Toarlyn Fitzpatrick at 12.7
and Victor Rudd (11.6) and Anthony Collins (10) close behind. … Rudd was voted
national player of the week by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association after
getting 29 points in a triple-overtime win vs. Bowling Green. … Patriots guard
Sherrod Wright averages a team-high 16.9 points.

Paul Hawken responds (Sustainable Industries)
Paul Hawken inspired the crowd at the November 1 Sustainable Industries
Economic Forum. If you missed the event, you can watch Hawken's talk in its
entirety here. The audience enjoyed a lively Q&A session, though we regret not
having time to answer more questions. In this season of giving thanks, we are
grateful Hawken took time to thoughtfully respond to the following questions
submitted by forum attendees. You are invited to continue the conversation in
the comments section below.
**Q: **We have so many smart people all over the world. How do we, or can we,
motivate or create incentives for these smart people … to find solutions that
change the system instead of inventing the next app or web site the world does
not really need? -_Annika__ Hoeltje, Presidio Graduate School_
**Hawken:** Motivation has two sources. The primary source is your own
experience. Passion, dedication, and aspiration arise from our inner life. Yet
our inner life is influenced by our experience in the world. Thus the second
source of motivation and incentives is the work, writings, talks, movements,
and actions of others. The understanding of how to change our relationship to
each other, the ...

3 Questions: Engineering hurricane barriers of the future (MIT)
_Oceans at MIT's Genevieve Wanucha sat down with Chiang C. Mei, Ford Professor
Emeritus of Engineering in MIT's Department of Civil and Environmental
Engineering, to ask for his perspective on the possibility of storm surge
barriers on the East Coast of the United States. He is well known for his
contributions in fluid mechanics with applications to coastal engineering. Mei
has worked on barrier systems since 1984, when construction of MOSE in Venice
began. His knowledge of the engineering challenges inherent to sea barriers
allows him to offer guidance to U.S. engineers and some concrete suggestions
for protecting the New York area._
**Q. ** Hurricane Sandy's devastating blow has left citizens and government
officials wondering how the area will fare in future storms. Climate
scientists predict that a warming planet will bring fewer but more intense
hurricanes with enough power to occasionally hit cities along the entire
Eastern seaboard. Given the predictions, do you think we can protect East
Coast cities? What would this technology look like and how much would it cost?
**A. ** From an engineering point of view, protecting New York and New Jersey
from storm surges is possible. It's also desirable because ...
