Four thieves storm the Fresno Apple Store and steal $27K worth of electronics!

The Fresno Police Department is investigating a robbery at the Apple store at Fashion Fair Mall. Lt. Rob Beckwith said police are searching for four men who stormed the store around 11:30 a.m. Saturday and took items off the display tables. "They were going through people and just grabbing stuff," Beckwith said Sunday. Police initially got a report that the incident was an armed robbery, but later determined that the alleged heist was quick and no weapons were used. Beckwith said investigators are describing the alleged robbery as "a large grand theft" due to the product value and that there was significant monetary loss. It was also unclear what specific items were taken by the men. Beckwith said detectives looking into the case may use surveillance video in the investigation. (via livelink.com)

Fix file association mess created by Irfanview

I will explain here how I solved this stupid problem that came up in Windows 10. Having a huge number of photographs to view, choose and edit, I decided to install the Irfanview freeware program, which I have known since Windows prehistory and had never given me problems . But with Windows 10, the story was a little different! 

I decided to uninstall Irfanview after completing the above tasks, perhaps because it seems really prehistoric. The uninstallation program warned me about the return of the file associations to default and I thought everything was fine. The problem came out when I tried to re-link the image files to my preferred viewer (the old school Windows Photo Viewer). When I tried to choose "open with" and "choose another app", there was not the expected "always use this app to open .jpeg files"!

After hours of reading messages from people with the same problem to solve, I came to the conclusion that Irfanview ruins several registry keys that need to disappear quickly. The easiest way to solve this mess is to use the "File Types Man" free tool, choose the file associations that are producing this problem and right click on "open file type in RegEdit", then just delete this key and repeat the process - there will be the "always use this app to open .jpeg files". Obviously this works with any kind of files!

The only thing that stands between fact and fiction is time,’ says daryl villanueva, founder and chief of design at bandit9, as he unveils the brand’s latest motorcycle, the ‘L concept’. much like the wonder that surrounded the launches of the inspirational USS enterprise or even their ‘EDEN‘ model, this bike is a sci-fi masterpiece in its own right. it disregards the ordinary, where it is instead shaped from a minimalist form and suspended turbine to define a fully functional work of art.

A Pink Pineapple Shaped Pavilion by Studio Morison

Contrast in design creates striking moments. A great example of this is when you mix something new with something old. The Louvre Pyramid by I.M. Pei at the Louvre Palace is a perfect example of architectural contrast. Not all projects need to be quite so stark though as evidenced by this lovely pavilion intervention at Berrington Hall.
As described by it’s website, Berrington Hall is a “neo-classical mansion with fine interiors, set in landscape grounds,” a posh canvas for which Studio Morison introduced a giant, pink pineapple that’s origami in form. It’s funny because I feel like the pavilion is so different from the environment around it, but the fact that it’s set in a garden is very appropriate. Pineapple’s are grown in the ground, the pink color harkens back to a victorian color palette, and the origami form is very flower like overall.
It’s definitely a fun intervention that would bring a smile to the face of any person who came across it.
