**Anticipating a huge backlash, I will probably not be looking at comments on this video. If gets extremely vitriolic, I will likely turn them off. And for everyone telling me it’s tacky to list credentials, try being a woman in science on the Internet, then tell me it’s not necessary...**

Building The PERFECT CASTLE in Grounded

In today's Grounded update episode, I built the biggest castle ever out of every mushroom block I could find on the map for my little Aphid friend! Hopefully he likes his spider roommates!

ABOUT & GAMEPLAY: Grounded
The world is a vast, beautiful and dangerous place – especially when you have been shrunk to the size of an ant. Explore, build and survive together in this first person, multiplayer, survival-adventure. Can you thrive alongside the hordes of giant insects, fighting to survive the perils of the backyard?

The SHROOM AND DOOM Update has been released!

THE BROODMOTHER
Grounded's first boss is finally here, and to celebrate, the team thought our backyard explorers should be rewarded with one of the most terrifying spiders they could find. You're welcome.

For anyone brave or foolhardy or both, she can be found in her lair near the Flingman flying disc in the Hedge, but it might take an offering of a tasty morsel to tempt her to face you. Just be warned - she might consider you the tasty morsel instead, so you'll want to make sure you're geared up and prepared!

PETS!
Take some slurry from the Grinder and entice a weevil or aphid to be your pet (that you can actually pet!) - each one has a different personality, and you can tame multiple if you make little pet houses for each one. Just be warned, these little critters are just as vulnerable with you as they were before, so treat them with care!

MUSHROOMS!
Every mushroom you see in the yard is now harvestable! Chop down those toadstools and grind them down into slurry you can use to make bricks! The castles you can create from these bricks are the current sturdiest defense you'll have against the dangers of the yard.

Check out Grounded on Steam for the new update!

If You See This Bug One Day, Don't Squish It!

So you’re at home, enjoying your evening tea under a warm blanket, when all of a sudden you see a huge — no, enormous! — mosquito. Its long and gangling legs have a span of your palm, and it clumsily bumps into all the obstacles it meets. Despite its awkward appearance, it’s still terrifying! What if it carries malaria? Slowly, not to draw the monster’s attention to yourself, you get out from your soft chair and run for it into the bathroom, lock yourself in there, and open the browser on your phone.

While googling, you get engrossed with reading up on some other weird and crazy bugs. For example, here’s the human-faced stinkbug. No, they don’t really stink, at least for humans. Here's a titan beetle next! It's the largest beetle in the whole world: it can grow as long as your entire palm, complete with fingers! Here's an Atlas moth that looks like they have three heads, two of which are serpent’s. They’re sometimes called cobra moths. There are 10 quintillion insects on Earth at all times and the critters on this list can fight to be named the “Strangest Bug Ever”.

The Most Reckless Pilots. Lowest Flights You've Never Seen Before

For copyright matters please contact us at: Copymanager.mn@gmail.com

PRIVATE DIARY ►

It's a real pleasure to see aerobatics performed by professional pilots high in the sky. These events are usually filmed by specialists, while spectators watch the show from the ground. However, sometimes anyone can capture spectacular images, and not during a special air show, but absolutely by chance. Today we have compiled such videos for you. Really cool airplane flights just a few feet off the ground: it's a terrifying and fascinating spectacle at the same time. Ready to see them? Then...

Distinguished Speakers Series with Dr. Rajiv J. Shah

Dr. Rajiv J. Shah brings over twenty years of experience in business, government, and philanthropy to The Rockefeller Foundation.  Appointed as USAID Administrator by President Obama in 2009, Dr. Shah was charged with reshaping the $20 billion agency’s operations to provide greater assistance to pressing development challenges around the globe. By elevating the importance of innovation, promoting public-private partnerships, rethinking internal practices, and shifting how dollars were spent to deliver stronger results, Shah secured bipartisan support that enabled USAID to dramatically accelerate its work to end extreme poverty. Two significant Presidential priorities – Feed the Future and Power Africa – passed the House and Senate with bipartisan support and were signed into law by President Obama, and the Global Food Security Act is the second largest global development legislation after PEPFAR.  Shah’s work delivered results for countries facing democratic transitions, post-conflict situations, and humanitarian crises, and is widely credited with providing life-saving access to food, health, and water for millions of children across the planet. 

Dr. Shah is a graduate of the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, and the Wharton School of Business.  Prior to his appointment at USAID, Shah served as Chief Scientist and Undersecretary for Research, Education and Economics at the United States Department of Agriculture.  He also served in a number of leadership roes at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, where he helped launch the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (a joint venture by the Gates and Rockefeller foundations) and the International Financing Facility for Immunization (credited with raising more than $5 billion for childhood immunizations worldwide) and where he supported the creation of the Global Development Program.

A Lasting Legacy: Sixty Years of Winterthur Graduate Programs

On view May 25, 2012, through June 16, 2013, the exhibition A LASTING LEGACY commemorates the nation's most successful university-museum partnership and explores Winterthur's impact on the changing roles of conservation and curatorial scholarship. Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library is the premier museum of American decorative arts, with an unparalleled collection of nearly 90,000 objects made or used in America between about 1640 and 1860. The collection is displayed in the magnificent 175-room former home of collector and horticulturalist Henry Francis du Pont, much as it was when the du Pont family lived here, as well as in permanent and changing exhibition galleries.
Winterthur is set amidst a 1,000-acre preserve of rolling meadows and woodlands. Designed by du Pont, its 60-acre naturalistic garden is among America’s best, with magnificent specimen plantings and massed displays of color. World-renowned graduate programs, art conservation laboratory, and preeminent research library make Winterthur an important center for the study of American art and culture.
