Singapore was covered by a thick blanket of haze on 17 June 2013. The smoke haze from the fires in Sumatra was brought over by prevailing winds blowing from the southwest or west, and has affected Singapore since 13 June 2013. The PSI reading hit 155 at 10pm on 17 June 2013, the highest level since September 1997 when the index reached an all-time high of 226.
I shot the video above from a high rise building in the Redhill area. It shows how bad the haze really was. Distant buildings can no longer be seen. Everything is so grey and hazy. And you can barely spot the train coming out of the MRT station.
The PSI yesterday reached unhealthy levels so it was time for... Mask On!

Forget about the GoPro, the Google Glass can be the ultimate POV action cam according to Mat Honan. He writes: "I wanted to see how Glass stacked up against other action cameras I’ve used. So the other day, on my way to work, I ditched my usual bike glasses for Glass with the windshield lens." This looks promising. If only Google Glass has a night vision mode and I will definitely use it on my show Singapore Haunted.

The Star Wars Han Solo in Carbonite Light Switch is a working switch installed in the crotch of Han Solo in Carbon Freeze. To turn the light on, just flip Han's willy! The maker says he hand-sculpted the switch plate and it installs directly to the wall over an existing switch outlet. I'm tempted to play with the switch many times.

For his latest work 36 Exposures, David Emitt Adams used 35mm film canisters discarded by his photography students as the base to hold their portraits. He writes: "I employed this labor-intensive, 19th-century photographic process to make the students’ portraits on the very film canisters that played a crucial role in their initial understanding of photography."

chocolate chip cookie cone! He writes: " I decided to just bake one giant cookie in my oven and then roll it into a cone the second it was done baking, before it could harden. Well, I guess sometimes the simplest idea is the best, because this worked like a charm."

White stream of snow flows through the beautiful landscape in a valley in Austria. Check out the moving snow! This is a wet snow avalanche, a low velocity suspension of snow and water, with the flow confined to the track surface. Most avalanches occur spontaneously during storms under increased load due to snowfall. The second largest cause of natural avalanches is metamorphic changes in the snowpack such as melting due to solar radiation. Other natural causes include rain, earthquakes, rockfall and icefall. Artificial triggers of avalanches include skiers, snowmobiles, and controlled explosive work.

Minister for Communications and Information Yaacob Ibrahim gets the MDA Rap treatment in which he tries to explain why Singapore requires news websites to apply for licences. He says Singapore wants to protect the interests of the ordinary Singaporeans and therefore it is important that the government makes sure that they read the "right" thing.
The new regulations state that online news sites reporting on local "news and current affairs" will need individual licenses, they will need to put out a performance bond of S$50,000 to acquire the license, and licensees will be required to remove "prohibited content" within 24 hours of being notified to do so. Sounds absurd? You bet. It is as absurd as the infamous MDA Rap video.
Meanwhile, bloggers in Singapore do not fall into MDA's new licensing framework for news sites, yet. MDA says that an individual writing about current affairs and trends on his personal website or blog is not news reporting.

Fast & Furious 6 required around 400 cars with everything tuned in Dennis McCarthy's performance shop in Burbank, California. Dennis is the man in charge of building the cars for Fast & Furious 6. A lot of the cars for the Fast & Furious movies were build by Dennis and his team from scratch while others were bought from Craigslist.com, ebay, etc.
Cars featured in the movie includes the BMW M5, Dodge Daytona, Jensen Interceptor, Ford Mustang, the Flip Car, Ford Escort, Barracuda, Lucra LC470, Z20, Nissan Skyline, Lamborghini Murcielago, Aston Martin DB9 and a Navistar MXT military vehicle.
For the Flip Car in Fast & Furious 6, director Justin Lin tasked the film's vehicle designer with developing a car capable of driving head first into moving vehicles and flipping them into the air. McCarthy and his team designed a fully functional, low to the ground, formula one style car with a ramp on its front that allowed it to catapult other cars into the air while keeping the Flip Car driver safe.
For more behind the scenes action, check out R3LOAD Network's B-Roll: Fast & Furious 6 (more than 20 mins long!) starring Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Sung Kang, Chris Bridges, Luke Evans, Gina Carano and John Ortiz. Fast & Furious 6 is directed by Justin Lin with cinematography by Stephen F. Windon. It is produced by Original Film and One Race Films and distributed by Universal Pictures.
