Among the Lanes of Lukang

Hidden away along the west coast of Taiwan is a town called Lukang. Much of Lukang has the everyday hustle and bustle of motorbikes and street stalls, but among this is a sleepy little neighborhood that’s altogether different. Lukang’s Historic Preservation Area reaches back in time with narrow brick lanes and beautiful little doorways that feel untouched since well into the last century.

Exploring the area by foot allows time to linger among the evident history and charm, and walk through some of Lukang’s well-preserved temples. Longshan was a favorite with its calm, open spaces and old, impeccably groomed trees in the courtyard.

Old Market Street and Nine Turns Lane hold the discovery of antiques, crafts, artists at work, and doorways to homes within the district. Sometimes colorful, sometimes old and worn, each doorway has its own personality along with a healthy dose of intrigue as to what might be…

Local recommendations app Sosh is expanding into two new cities — Washington and Chicago — and is also announcing a partnership with OpenTable.

Unlike Yelp, Sosh instead provides a finely tuned curated list of what’s happening in the cities it covers: San Francisco, New York, Seattle, plus today’s new arrivals. The app says it doesn’t aim for quantity (there are 20 highly rated restaurants near you), but instead quality (you should go to this one hidden place we know about). It curates this information via expert reports (what it dubs ‘tastemakers’) as well as other sources like local magazines and blogs.

As Sosh’s CEO Rishi Mandal explained to me “the goal has never been to build an exhaustive list of things that people could do.”

With today’s OpenTable announcement, we are seeing more of Mandal’s overall vision for the app: Users are able to use Sosh to book reservations for the venues…

Billions Of Crazy Ants Set To Invade Houston

Postado originalmente em CBS Houston:

HOUSTON, Texas (CBS Houston) – In the next few weeks, billions of Rasberry Crazy Ants will descend on Houston after already invading more than 20 counties in Texas.

“These ants are so much more powerful than fire ants. When these crazy ants move in they take over,” Tom Rasberry, a Pearland exterminator, told KPRC.

In 2002, Rasberry discovered the unique ant variety known as the Tawny Crazy Ant, but are nicknamed after him. The ants, which originally came from South America, are known for their sheer numbers and for their irregular movements.

“They’re 10,000 times tougher than fire ants,” Rasberry said. “They’re much more difficult to control.”

Rasberry Crazy Ants don’t sting or bite, but they prefer to live under rocks, in lawns and sometimes in trees instead of creating ant hills.

“They can get into electrical equipment. They get electrocuted, and unfortunately that signals other ants to the…
