I’m a bit of a weather geek and had been a little bit disappointed that the Dark Sky iPhone app wasn’t available in Australia, well disappointment be gone! The team behind Dark Sky has brought their magic forecasting algorithm to a new shiny web app, Forecast.
The app’s location awareness is pretty spot on, and so is their forecasting (kind of important for a weather app right). You can save your locations too for faster reference when you load / open the app. Go check it out!
Pro Tip: If you load it up on your iDevice you can of course save it as an app, the app icon is quite nifty too.
Science! Biology, specifically!
It’s going to be a long 4 month wait…
I like the ‘interface’ comment.
A very quick throw together recipe for this one;
- I generally allow 7-8 King Prawns per person (for a main meal, less for an entree)
- 1 teaspoon of garlic paste, or 2 garlic cloves crushed
- 1/2 teaspoon of chilli paste, or 1 chilli finely sliced and deseeded
- 1 handful of green beans, topped and tailed
- 1/2 a red onion, sliced finely
- 1 handful of snow peas, topped and tailed
3/4 cook the King Prawns in a small amount of oil in a Wok With the garlic and chilli, then set aside.
Cook the onions for a minute in the wok before adding in the green beans and snow peas, then cook for a further 2 minutes.
Add the King Prawns back to the wok with the vegetables, stir fry for 1-2 minutes, or till the King Prawns are a nice shade of pink.
Serve it up with some salad or some rice depending on the taste you’re going for.
A fantastic TED talk by Amanda Palmer. Well worth the 13 odd minutes, whether you like her music or not.
