Steve Jobs's yacht is making what looks to be its first public appearance in the Dutch city of Aalsmeer, a bit more than one year after his death. The photographs first appeared on the Apple news site One More Thing and closely resemble the description given by Walter Isaacson in his Steve Jobs biography.
After our omelets at the café, we went back to his house and he showed me all of the models and architectural drawings. As expected, the planned yacht was sleek and minimalist. The teak decks were perfectly flat and unblemished by any accoutrements. As at an Apple store, the cabin windows were large panes, almost floor to ceiling, and the main living area was designed to have walls of glass that were forty feet long and ten feet high. He had gotten the chief engineer of the Apple stores to design a special glass that was able to provide structural support. By then the boat was under construction by the Dutch custom yacht builders Feadship, but Jobs was still fiddling with the design. "I know that it’s possible I will die and leave Laurene with a half-built boat," he said. "But I have to keep going on it. If I don’t, it’s an admission that I’m about to die."
One image clearly shows "de vries," one of the two shipyards that make up the Feadship custom yacht building company, while another tells us that the yacht is christened "Venus," the Roman goddess of love and beauty. The ship builders were each gifted an iPod shuffle with the ship's name inscribed on the back, along with a note thanking them for their "hard work and craftsmanship."
Jobs's family is reportedly on-hand for the unveiling of the superyacht that One More Thing says features a lightweight aluminum exterior measuring up to 80 meters long. Another image shows six of the seven 27-inch iMacs found in the ship's interior, reportedly designed by Philippe Starck. The backside of the iMacs are also visible in the wheelhouse in the video above.

**ฝูงเป็ดกับการว่ายน้ำครั้งแรกของชีวิต** / สะท้อนชีวิตฮาฮาดีครับ 55555+
This video should make you smile as these ducks see water for the first time.
The full story is here http://woodstocksanctuary.org/2012/09/large-bird-hoarding-case-resolved/ which includes horrible pictures from the initial rescue.
(Sorry mobile users, YouTube is restricting this to desktops only for now!)
For the first time in their lives two dozen recently rescued ducks get their first taste of life in a pond. They had been living for years with a hoarder who had them in pens without adequate access to water or proper nutrition.

What is the music?
Music is "Egyptian Reggae" by Jonathan Richman. You can find it on iTunes or just about anywhere. Jonathan is a swell musician so if you're not familiar with him, check him out--you're in for a treat! He was in the film "There's Something About Mary" if that reminds you. http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/egyptian-reggae/id68288338?i=68287597
Can we have a version without the music?
Nah. This video was shot on the spur of the moment with a Canon 7D. If you know anything about these cameras, they have nice picture quality but crummy audio because the mike is mounted on the camera -- so you pick up all the clunks and clicks from manipulating the lens. Plus the ducks were about 20 - 30 feet away, so we really didn't pick up too much audio of them.
Why didn't you let the ducks just find their own way into the water instead of chasing them in?
There are a number of considerations. It was important to get the new ducks integrated into the flock swiftly because by the end of the day they would be sharing a coop to protect them from nocturnal predators, and so any issues needed to be observed and dealt with if certain ducks were being picked on, etc., so that we could separate them again if necessary. The pond is a safe place for ducks because there are no corners, whereas the pasture perimeter does have corners.
Also we have limited staff and lots of other animals needing attention, so it was judicious for the safety of the new ducks to get them acclimated while staff members were present. Last, from many previous experiences we KNEW they would love the water once they were in.
Who made the video?
Doug Abel is an award-winning editor (30 Rock, Louie, The Fog of War, more http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0003575/) who co-founded the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary with his wife, Jenny Brown. Jenny recently wrote a book called "The Lucky Ones" which tells the story of her journey to create WFAS. http://youtu.be/RbL18w9unFM
How to properly eat a cupcake
"Ever have trouble eating a cupcake without looking like a fool? Whether it's frosting on your face and fingers, or nibbling it like a kitten, a cupcake is a tough dessert to eat properly."
"Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules and they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them — because they change things. They push the human race forward.
While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius — because the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world are the ones who do."
Today is the one-year anniversary of the death of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. It seems like an appropriate time to listen to his narration of Apple's first "Think Different" commercial again.
This is the halftime performance of The Ohio State University Marching Band on 10/6/12 against Nebraska. The theme was Video games and it included parts from Zelda, Halo, Pokemon, Tetris, and others.
Don't miss the running horse at 6:00.
This is another amazing halftime by the OSUMB. Be sure to watch the other great shows they've put on and will continue to put on this season.
