Induction stove tops might be more energy-efficient than electric or gas burners, but many chefs miss the obvious visual cues about what temperature they're cooking at—a red-hot burner is hard to misinterpret.

How London's Amazing New Subway Trains Were Designed

"I remember going on the Tube trains when I was very young, and thinking 'this is amazing'.

Portraits of abandoned dogs before being put down at a shelter

Taiwanese photographer Yun-Fei Tou created these portraits of abandoned dogs minutes before being euthanized to "arouse people's awareness of animals rights."

Short film: Giant rock creature teaches a funny life lesson

I think this silly animation about a giant rock creature trying to rescue a town is a hilariously dark lesson that shows how some things just aren't worth saving.

This is how you actually break open a giant Italian cheese

I'm just posting this for two reasons. Because I find it fascinating from beginning to end—I just couldn't stop watching him prepping the cheese wheel to break it open—and because I just discovered there's a thing called Channel Cheese TV on YouTube.

Sending the Great Oscar de la Renta to That September Issue In the Sky
