I came across this instructable that I really really liked.

Whenever I need a CD case and don’t have one, I’ll inevitably pick up a random piece of A4 paper and just fold and staple it together into a folder. ugly but functional.

This guy however made a CD case from the same random piece of paper and it becomes ART.

Origami CD case

Now the CD case is both pretty and functional. How neat! Learn how to do it here.

And in case I forgot to mention it before, instructables.com is a wonderful site chock full of all kinds of instructions to do almost anything. I really like the site because of the gems I can find – like this instructable! =)

I got this interesting piece of news from my rss feed today:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Two separate teams of researchers announced on Tuesday they had transformed ordinary skin cells into batches of cells that look and act like embryonic stem cells — but without using cloning technology and without making embryos.

Hopefully this breakthrough would mean that the current debate about moral and ethical issues would become irrelevant. Anyway, do go read that link. There’s not alot of scientific jargon so it should be an easy and informative read.
