This is Shanghai, Time-Lapse of a Bustling Chinese Metropolis

The soaring skyline and frenetic pace of Shanghai are depicted in a seamlessly connected series of time-lapses in
“This is Shanghai”
by filmmaker
Rob Whitworth
and urban explorer
JT Singh
In 1980 Shanghai had no skyscrapers. It now has at least 4,000 — more than twice as many as New York. ‘This is Shanghai’ explores the diversities and eccentricities of the metropolis that is Shanghai going beyond the famous skyline.

Germany Puts Its Longest Word Out to Pasture Germany Puts Its Longest Word Out to Pasture

The BBC reports that Germany
has retired its longest word
: “Rindfleischetikettierungsueberwachungsa ufgabenuebertragungsgesetz.” The 63-letter word, which means “law delegating beef label monitoring” is pronounced just like it’s spelled: “Rindfleischetikettierungsueberwachungsa ufgabenuebertragungsgesetz.” The word was born in 1999 to describe a law related to the mad cow disease epidemic, but the law was recently repealed due to updates in EU laws on the testing of cattle. According to the BBC, the German media is now searching for a new longest word in the German language. The longest word in the English language is the
189,819-letter chemical name for a protein

And since some of us are confectioners, we felt it was our responsibility to find out just what this flavor was that could turn a screaming, furious infant into a placid, contented one. Surely the flavor must be heavenly, yes?
We are endlessly grateful to all the mothers who kept sharing their breast milk with our flavor specialists until we were able to candify it. These lollipops wo

After Boo was saved, Sully and Mike realized they no longer required scares for cash, thus forcing Mike into a new line of business; comedy.
As Mike continued his stand-up routine with the children in hopes for laughs, Sully partied and wasted money that he didn’t have. The problem is: the world didn’t care,

Terrafugia Unveils Futuristic TF-X Flying Car Concept Terrafugia Unveils Futuristic TF-X Flying Car Concept

Last year
we posted about the
Transition
, a flying car under development by
Terrafugia
. With the Transition nearing production, the Massachusetts-based company has announced plans for its next generation of flying car, the
TF-X
. The TF-X concept calls for hybrid-electric drive, vertical takeoff and landing, and a 200 MPH top speed. In contrast to the Transition, which requires a trained pilot to operate, the TF-X will feature an advanced autopilot that will allow it to perform most flight functions—including takeoff, landing, and navigation—automatically. According to Terrafugia, a TF-X operator could be trained in as little as 5 hours. Terrafugia expects it will take 8 to 12 years to bring the TF-X to production.

Shark Attack, Infographic Shows the Staggering Number of Sharks Killed by Humans Every Year Shark Attack, Infographic Shows the Staggering Number of Sharks Killed by Humans Every Year

Joe Chernov
and
Robin Richards
have created an
infographic
that illustrates the staggering number of sharks killed by humans every year. According to the infographic, sharks killed 12 people last year, but humans kill that many sharks every four seconds, adding up to an estimated total of 100 million sharks annually. Many sharks are killed by “
finning
,” a process in which a shark’s fins are cut off to be sold for shark fin soup. Organizations like the
Shark Conservation Society
Stop Shark Finning
Humane Society International
, documentaries like
Sharkwater
, and environmental campaigns on
The Pew Charitable Trusts
are all working to raise awareness of and ultimately prevent shark finning. You can view the
