    Artist Turns 1988 Ford Fiesta Into Sculpture of a Squatting

    British artist Hetain Patel has spent three months turning an old 1988 Ford Fiesta into a sculpture inspired by the US blockbuster Transformers. Hetain Patel, 32 from Bolton, created the sculpture in homage to the American film and toy franchise, with his engineer brother Pritum and his father, Pravin, who converts cars into hearses for his job.
    "My first car was a 1988 Ford Fiesta gifted to me by my father as I turned 17. Born in the UK to immigrant Indian parents, the passing of a car between generations provided me with my first taste of independence. In this new work, I’ve turned my hand to a newly acquired 1988 Ford Fiesta of the same specifications as my original car to create my first sculpture. Manufactured in England, this car stands as a symbol of working class Britain, a native body, albeit here a car body."
    The video is a time-lapse video of Hetain’s build process.

    Adventure Is Calling by Shane Black.
    "During those 2 months, we traveled across 32 states , visited 13 national and state parks, and drove nearly 13,000 miles in a (somewhat) trusty old Dodge Caravan... with no cruise control. It was an adventure that gave us many memories that we will all hold onto for many years to come. I think that everybody needs to take a trip and have their eyes opened to just how beautiful this world is and how much is really out there."
    Living wallet

    The Living Wallet looks like a regular wallet — except for the small wheels on its sides. According to its official website, the wallet pairs with a bookkeeping app called Zaim, which works on the iPhone, Android, iPad and on the web.

    Zaim has two modes, 'Save Mode' and 'Consumption Mode', depending on your balance and it does its part to see that you save money. If you spend too much, the "Living Wallet" will walk away from you to discourage excess spending and thus helps you save money.

    Gold found in the leaves of eucalyptus trees
    Australian scientists from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) have found gold in the leaves of eucalyptus trees. The particles are much too small to be seen with the naked eye but have been detected using a type of x-ray that is especially good at picking up trace amounts of metals and minerals. 

    However, the amount of gold in the leaves is little. Study leader Mel Lintern told the Brisbane Times: 'If you had 500 eucalyptus trees growing over a gold deposit, they would only have enough gold in there to make a wedding ring.'
