Girl Genius: Omnibus Volume One

When Tor Books unexpectedly sent me a copy of the recently-collected first hardcover edition of Girl Genius: Omnibus Volume One - Agatha Awakens, it was a welcome introduction to this bizarre and entertaining steampunk adventure. This edition covers the storyline from issues one through ten of the original comic book - which covers the first three of the authors' self-published collections - and makes for an ideal gateway to the world and its characters. It's steampunk to the core, with its Industrial Revolution surroundings, airships, sideburns of true magnificence, and mad scientists gifted with "the Spark" of invention.

Gallery: What 100,000 people are lining up (in frustration) to see at Yeosu World Expo

by Frances Cha

Apparently, visitors to the Expo 2012 in Yeosu, Korea, are like blind dates. You pray they'll show up, but when they do, you don't really know what to do with them.

Despite being riddled with global superlatives -- of the quirky techie variety, including biggest gathering of robots in the history of expos, the world's largest dome screen, the world's tallest robot and a laser-shooting robot fish -- the ocean-themed Expo 2012 in Yeosu, Korea, has had a rickety start the past few weeks in terms of attendance and operations. 

Visitor turnout

The daily number of visitors to the Yeosu Expo -- located 455 kilometers south of Seoul -- finally reached 100,000 this past Sunday, mostly due to the three-day Buddha's Birthday holiday weekend.

The local press reported that the growing number of visitors served to highlight the shortcomings of the expo, especially in regards to advance bookings and lack of parking, restrooms and accommodations. 

According to Korean daily Dong-A Ilbo, more than 1,000 visitors who could not reserve admission to the eight main exhibition halls filed for refunds on Sunday, while some facility operations were stalled when annoyed patrons caused a ruckus at an aquarium.

New road layout is going to help us all

TAKE a deep breath, step back and look at the plans for the new road layout through the Centre. There is something refreshingly sensible about them. They really do seem to have been drawn up by people who know what it is like to navigate their way around the bizarre figure-of-eight arrangement that is there at present.

Whether you are driving into the city or out every way is made more straight forward.

And if you are in any doubt just run through the current journey you have to make.

Of course it is easy to judge a plan on paper but the omens are good.

It also makes sense to reestablish this area as a transport hub as it was during the days of trams, something which led to it being called the Centre.

But there is a sting in the tail. The revamped layout is only the consequence of the bendy-bus rapid transit network going ahead.

Whether that will deliver any benefits at all to public transport in Bristol remains to be seen.

If we are lumbered with diesel powered buses rather than electric trams then we can at least enjoy some of the benefits.

And one of those will be having a traffic-free plaza around Bristol's cenotaph for the first time in living memory.

Video: Jay Leno's Garage releases Bollywood-inspired Tata Nano episode

Filed under: , , ,

Jay Leno's Garage Tata Nano

Jay Leno has finally turned out the Tata Nano episode of Jay Leno's Garage. As it turns out, the television personality actually found a way to purchase the tiny machine for himself, and the show follows the car all the way down the production line and to the Big Dog Garage in Los Angeles. Leno rolled out a whole passel of Bollywood dancers to mark the occasion and even abandoned his traditional denim uniform for an elegant Indian suit. Unfortunately, the Nano isn't legal to operate on U.S. roads, so the comedian had to come up with a place to play with his new toy.

The Los Angeles Police Department was more than happy to offer Leno a little time on their test track to stretch the Nano's legs. Despite the small engine, the car seems plenty entertaining to drive, though its suspension is clearly set up to handle the rough streets and byways of the Indian countryside. Check out the clip for yourself.

Don't say we didn't warn you: Korea's 5 spiciest dishes

by Jiyeon Lee

My mission: find the spiciest, most lip-burning, tongue-scalding, stomach-scorching dish in Korea.

But why?

Strange as it might sound, for me and many fellow Koreans, spice is therapy.

There's something cathartic about feeling like your brain is on fire; it's a sentiment many Koreans relate to.

In a country where extreme spice is considered as basic as salt and pepper, a sensible response to ?I?m so stressed out? is ?let?s go wolf down something terribly spicy."

Tony Blair: It Would Be Strange If Politicians Didn?t Have Relationships With Big Media

post thumbnail In a moment reminiscent of last year’s shaving-cream pie attack on Rupert Murdoch at a Parliamentary committee hearing, an unwelcome guest infiltrated the Leveson Inquiry into UK media ethics today. This time, it was former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair testifying and the attack was a verbal one. An antiwar protester burst in shouting, “The man is a war criminal!” before being forcibly removed. Blair, who supported the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, and who told the inquiry there was nothing odd about speaking with Murdoch three times before the war, was unruffled. Related: UK Editor Arrested In News Corp Scandal Earlier in the day, Blair said that as a politician, running afoul of a media group “means you are then effectively blocked from getting your message across.” Blair gave evidence as to his relationship with Rupert Murdoch and the relationship of politicians and the media in general. He avidly courted the News Corp chief from his early days as head of the Labour Party. After Blair paid a visit to Australia in 1995 in what he said was a “very deliberate and very strategic” move to curry favor, Murdoch famously said, ?I suspect we’ll end up making love like two porcupines – very carefully.? Murdoch’s Sun newspaper backed Blair in all of his runs at office. Related: Rebekah Brooks First Person Charged In News Corp Scandal Blair told the inquiry ... Read More »

United first U.S. airline for 787 Dreamliner

Tickets to ride on Boeing?s new 787 Dreamliner have gone on sale at a U.S. airline for the first time, after United announced its Denver-to-Tokyo service this week.

Seats are available now for flights starting some months ahead -- the first is scheduled to take off from Denver International Airport on March 31, 2013, and return from Tokyo Narita the following day.

United CEO Jeff Smisek was enthusiastic about his company?s getting its hands on the new Boeing, calling the Dreamliner ?the coolest airplane in the sky.?

Long and thin

The Denver-Tokyo route is one of those low-traffic flights sometimes described as ?long and thin,? meaning it?s intercontinental, but not in particularly high demand, due to the size of one or both cities it connects.

That makes the Dreamliner suitable for profit-squeezed airlines, as with a little over 200 seats it's both smaller than other long-haul craft and fuel-efficient.
