This LED billboard is the only way to see the sunrise in smoggy Beijing

This LED billboard is the only way to see the sunrise in smoggy Beijing | Grist

New York Times correspondent Edward Wong RTed this picture of a billboard in Beijing:


We've previously reported about Hong Kong's fake blue-sky backdrop for tourist photos, but Beijing has done them one better -- the ersatz sunset glows just like the real thing, and if it's video, as reported, you can even take fake tourist Vines and nobody will be the wiser! Just make sure to use a tight, tight zoom. Step back too far and it becomes clear that you're in a dystopian air pollution nightmare.

Miley Cyrus, Arias murder trial top Yahoo's 2013 searches

Miley Cyrus, Arias murder trial top Yahoo's 2013 searches - Yahoo News

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Pop singer Miley Cyrus and the trial of boyfriend-killer Jodi Arias dominated Yahoo's online searches in 2013, the web search engine said on Tuesday, while rapper-producer duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis dominated music streams on Spotify.

Cyrus, 21, generated the most overall searches on Yahoo this year, overtaking reality television personality Kim Kardashian, who topped the list last year.

Cyrus has had an attention-filled 2013, in which she grabbed headlines for her breakup with actor-fiance Liam Hemsworth, danced provocatively on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards in August, and released her new album "Bangerz" in October.

The murder trial of 33-year-old Arias, who was found guilty in May of killing her boyfriend Travis Alexander at his Phoenix-area home, captivated the public over five months with bizarre testimony and graphic sexual evidence, helping it become the most searched news item on Yahoo.

Arias' trial was followed on Yahoo by the Affordable Care Act and its common name "Obamacare," which were counted as one search term, as the second most-searched news story, while the Boston Marathon bombing in April came in third.

President Barack Obama was the top-searched political figure, topping ailing Nelson Mandela, the former South African president, at No. 2, and former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin at No. 3.

While Cyrus topped Yahoo's overall searches, R&B singer Beyonce topped Microsoft's Bing search engine as the most-searched person, while Kardashian's first child, daughter North West she had with rapper Kanye West, topped Ask.com's top celebrity search terms.

Online music-streaming site Spotify also released its 2013 year in review on Tuesday and named Seattle's rapper-producer duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis as the year's most-streamed artist.

The pair have seen their career skyrocket this year as their debut album "The Heist" spawned hit singles "Thrift Shop," "Same Love" and "Can't Hold Us," which was the most-streamed single.

Shazam, the music-identifying online app, also named Macklemore & Ryan Lewis as its most "Shazamed" artist, with 11.7 million tags throughout the year. R&B singer Rihanna came second with 8.4 million tags. She was also named Spotify's most-streamed female artist for a second consecutive year.

To the Indian experiment the attempt to blend democracy and rapid economic growth has concentrated the attention of the free world. From the day of its independence, the economy was planned by the government of India. Rooted in a normal society and lacking a lot of the conditions of economic development, India was required to shepherd sources of money, men, and equipment carefully to make the leap into the modern technological age.

Robert F. Kennedy’s Assassin Transferred To New Prison

Robert F. Kennedy’s Assassin Transferred To New Prison

Robert F. Kennedy's assassin was transferred to a new prison within the California system on the date of the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination.

Sirhan Sirhan is serving a life sentence for the 1968 murder of Senator Robert F. Kennedy, also known as Bobby.

According to a state corrections official, Sirhan Sirhan, accused killer of former Attorney General, Bobby Kennedy, was transferred from Corcoran state prison in central California to Richard J. Donovan prison in San Diego.

Deborah Hoffman, Corrections spokesperson said the move was routine within the prison system and the date in which it took place was an "unfortunate coincidence."

Since being convicted Sirhan, 69, has spent time at Corcoran State Prison in the San Joaquin Valley, Pleasant Valley State Prison in Coalinga, and San Quentin.

His life sentence for the murder of Robert Kennedy was commuted to life in prison in 1972.

Under the law, the killer has the right to a parole hearing every five years, the latest such occasion was in 2011 when his parole was denied.

Robert Kennedy was the younger brother of John F. Kennedy and served as Attorney General from 1961 to 1964, when he left the Johnson administration to run for the Senate.

The Indians still encourage a substantial amount of ownership of the way of production by private persons.

As a close confidant to his brother, Robert F. Kennedy had great influence on several crucial historical moments for the United States, such as the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the Berlin Crisis of 1961, and played several roles within Jack Kennedy's administration.

Robert F. Kennedy was a champion for the Civil Rights movement and fought the mafia and organized crime during Kennedy's Presidency.
While campaigning for the Democratic Presidential nomination in 1968, Kennedy won the California primary and had just given an acceptance speech to his supporters in one of the ballrooms at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.

As he left the ballroom, taking a shortcut through the hotel kitchen, Sirhan Sirhan fired three times hitting Robert F. Kennedy and others, the assassination was caught on video.

Bobby Kennedy was rushed, first to Los Angeles's Central Receiving Hospital and then to Good Samaritan Hospital where he died early the next morning.

Sirhan said that he shot the Senator for his support for Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War, which had started a year prior, on the day of the assassination.

Robert Kennedy was buried in Arlington National Cemetery, not far from his brother John F. Kennedy who was also assassinated on November 22, 1963.
