I AM MY OWN PARADIGM Washington, D.C.

Exploring Portland’s Cathedral Park

For more photos and videos from the park and its arches, explore the Cathedral Park and St. John’s Bridge location pages.

In the northernmost part of Portland, Oregon, the iconic St. John’s Bridge extends across the Willamette River. Though the bridge has become known for its green hue and distinctly pointed towers, the park underneath has also come to enjoy a fame of its own.

The bridge’s stylized architecture continues even into its soaring concrete supports, which resemble the arches of a Gothic cathedral. Taking its name from the supports, Cathedral Park opened in 1980—a stark change from what had nearly been a junkyard beneath the bridge a decade earlier.

Now, the park’s lush meadow spaces, proximity to the river and dramatic backdrops create a special draw for local and visiting Instagrammers, making the space a favorite for creative outings and InstaMeets.

How do Americans feel about the sci-fi technologies promising to invade their lives? This week, pollsters from the Pew Research Center released the results of a survey of 1001 adults, revealing which technologies we’re afraid and which ones we think will never come to pass. The fears of a dystopian future are telling. When asked whether a new tech breakthrough would be a change for the better or worse, most respondents picked “worse” for implants that pump information into our brains, drones in U.S. airspace, and even robot caregivers for the elderly. About half of us are ready for driverless cars, but about three-quarters said they would not use a brain implant to improve their memory or performance, or eat lab-grown beef. Not surprisingly, the idea of trusting robots to take care of us is a little easier to digest than digesting a hamburger made by science. The body is (more) sacrosanct. 

Which is More Likely: Teleportation or Space Colonies?

can we start a club for teenagers who were constantly complimented on their intelligence when they were younger and are now having trouble coping with the realization that they’re actually of average intellect at best

in elementary school i constantly scored as reading at a college level but then i got to college and suddenly everyone’s reading at college level.

I HAVE NEVER SEEN A POST THAT SO ACCURATELY DESCRIBES MY LIFE.

When you know how to weld, you can repair the rusted hand railing on your front stoop or a broken tractor hitch. You can build machines or simple workshop aids, such as heavy-duty shelf brackets. When you get good at it, you can even restore old cars. That’s a lot of applications for a single skill. At its most basic, welding joins two pieces of metal using melted steel as the glue. Here we demonstrate that process with a flux-cored wire-feed welder. When the powdered flux inside the wire melts, it emits a gas that condenses to form a thin shell of slag. This protective layer prevents contaminants in the air from polluting the cooling molten metal and reducing the strength of the weld. Most projects require five steps: prepare the metal; clamp the pieces in position; tack them together with blobs of metal; finish-weld the parts; and clean up the assembly. Get that down and you can handle a project like the C table at the end of this article. 

Yes, You Can Learn to Weld. Here’s How.

Hmmmmm

Oh my god. I want this for whatever tablet I decide to get.
