Hell On Earth – Photos From A Chinese Steel Mill

chinesesteelmill

From BuzzFeed –

As the world’s biggest polluter, China faces an extraordinary challenge in reducing its emissions — one made all the more difficult because of the countless high-polluting factories scattered across the country. Authorities have moved to shut down many of the worst-offending factories, but some factory owners simply pay informal “fines” to local authorities before re-opening. Photojournalist Kevin Frayer traveled to Inner Mongolia with Getty Images earlier this month to capture some haunting pictures of life inside one steel mill.

But now it’s been refreshed by this gorgeous man-made rainbow placed right in the middle of it. The artist behind it is Gabriel Dawe, a Mexican-born creator who specializes in mixed media and installations made out of colored threads which look like light beams bouncing around confined spaces.

According to RedFerret.net –

Your headphones are your connection to your musical library when you’re on the go. Why not make them part of your look? I mean, why be plain when you can be magical? The Elf Ear Headphones are the elf ear alternative to earbuds. These earbuds connect via 3.5mm jack and generally function as standard sound devices. Their shape is a bit different. Instead of just being a set of discreet silicone topped nubs you slide into your ear, these bad boys are topped with pointy elf ears that work with your normal human ears to give you a magical makeover.

AbleWord – FreeFile Review

I only recently discovered a fantastic word processor called AbleWord, and have found it a pleasant surprise. Think of AbleWord as WordPad on steroids. It is a simple word prosessor with some powerful features. It is Windows only.

The Good – The install is quick with no extra software. AbleWord has a attractive Windows XP style interface. The menus and toolbars (only 2) are sparsely populated with only the basics. AbleWord’s real power lies in the formats that it works with. It will open, edit, and save in .doc .docx .pdf .html. Compatability with MS Office formats is good. It has Spell Check, Text Find, and Word Count. Tables and images can be inserted into documents. Everything seems to work well.

The Bad – I have trouble finding anything wrong with AbleWord. One thing that I found confusing was the “Open PDF Text” command. Initially, I tried to open existing PDF files with that command, and had mixed results. Later, I found that opening PDFs with the “Open” command gave excellent results. One suggestion I have is that simple drawing tools would be a welcome addition.

— — — — The Bottom Line — — — —

AbleWord is an excellent application that deserves much wider recognition. It is perfect for most pc users who have basic word processing needs. The PDF functionality make it a must have program.
