How far away is that storm, Tiger?

There are apparently some 25 million lightning strikes in the US every year with around 400 people struck by lightning strikes and many of them on the wide open fields of sporting events. The most dangerous place to be, of course, is on the golf course where golf addicts always seem to want to play one more hole before the weather really kicks in. Now, I was always told you count five seconds for every mile that the storm is away, after the  lightning strike and when the thunder sounds. Storm Distance Calculator works on this theory and, with a couple of clicks on your mobile, you'll ...  More

Read over 2,000 global newspapers from cover to cover

The way we get our news has changed dramatically over the last few years and it's likely to be only the beginning. Ten years ago most of us would have had the daily paper delivered to the door or would pick a copy up on the way to work but these days many have abandoned the paper chase to get their news experience directly from the Internet. But it's not the same is it? From reading snippets of articles on the net one doesn't get the full spectrum of news from around the globe. Yet it's getting harder to find good quality journalism unless you scour online newspapers from around the world. ...  More

A conceptual social experiment with debates and discussions

I'm not quite sure of the underlying meaning of an app like Nageshny although I can totally see how it would appeal to some of the more creative thinkers out there. Nageshny could be called a crowd sourcing app and has its origins in the Arab world where it is not quite as easy to get ones point across as it is in less turbulent parts of the world. It considers itself to be a social experiment where users can debate and discuss specific issues and even back their argument up with photographic and video evidence before other members vote to see who wins. Awfully democratic, don't you think, ...  More
