"The notion of the 'space fighter' is a staple of science fiction, they play key roles in some of the most enduring sci-fi universes, and as it happens frequently the people behind these universes haven't really given much of a though to how the design of a space fighter affects the way it flies and performs.
There are plenty of great space fighter games and within the genre of 'spaceship' games there are different flight models that are used - non-newtonian, semi-newtonian and full newtonian. With Cloud Imperium Games releasing a detailed dev blog on their spacecraft flight mechanics I wanted to demonstrate some of the physics within Kerbal space program. We start out in the atmosphere to demonstrate how real world fighter planes fly since this behaviour is aped in Star Wars. Then we go to the Mun and demonstrate various control systems seen in universes that support newtonian flight models..."

"This is an experimental video. The main point of this video is to see things from another perspective, from the point of view of those who are not important to the plot they're involved in. In this particular case, for example, when things are seen from the point of view of the irrelevant criminals, it seems as if this was a horror video since they don't even know why are they doing what they do, they just follow orders, but things are very different from the main character's perspective.
So that's they point of this video, to see things through those who only follow orders, but don't know exactly what they are doing or why. Just like the common guard from Metal Gear Solid games, or the combine soldier from Half Life 2 games.
Don't get my point yet? Don't worry, the video will explain itself. Now proceed to watch the video to understand..."

"'Do You Know Who You’re Going to Bed With? Protecting Yourself From Bed Bugs in the Modern Era' by Brittany Clark.
It’s the dead of night. You’re curled up snug in your bed, sound asleep. But wait! Dramatic music swells and an ominous figure appears at your bedside. The audience screams, but you slumber on, blissfully unaware as this creature leans in to consume your blood. Even in the recesses of sleep, you feel something. You stir and waken. The beast quickly retreats, but you don’t have to see it to know the horror that has come to you. You have just been bitten…by a bed bug! Despite the fact that we have lived with bed bugs since the first caveman threw down some animal hides and curled up for a nap, most of us have only ever heard of them in nursery rhymes and media horror stories. What are the real dangers of bed bugs and how can we protect ourselves?
Brittany is a licensed field representative and bed bug specialist for Pestec Integrated Pest Management company in San Francisco. She has a B.S. in psychobiology from the University of New England. She’s a Leo who likes long walks on the beach, dogs, and protecting her bed from parasites."
