We've all seen them: the dreaded boob lights , marring apartments and builder-grade homes everywhere with their unrepentant mediocrity. If you're a little bit handy you've probably replaced one, or thought about it, but then you probably ran into the same difficulty I did when I started looking for a fixture to replace the boobs in my own apartment: flush-mount fixtures can be really ugly. If the room in question doesn't have the head room for a beautiful chandelier with a two-foot drop, finding the right fixture can be a real challenge. Where are all the nice-looking flush-mount lights? Surely, they have to be out there...somewhere, so we decided to do a little hunting, and here's what we found. READ MORE »

The sky above Nottingham's luminarium may have been grey and boring - but inside the pop up attraction it was a different matter. Bright colours and unusual patterns adorn the walls and ceiling of the art installation which opened at Nottingham Lakeside Arts in Highfields Park today. (May 29) While children enjoyed the bouncy castle-type material in the luminarium, a walk-in sculpture which showcases the wonder of light and colour, adults also revelled in the relaxing colours and...

In his own remarks to the gathering back inside the hall, now cleared of chairs and set up with a dance floor, Milbank noted the traditional Ketubah set a price on the wife to be paid to her father.

We're on approach and I saw 6 lights over the airport in absolute uniform, in a V shape...It's unidentified, it is flying and it's 6 objects....That was the most viewed UFO event, over 20,000 people saw that. What Actually Happened? It began with Luke Air Force Base, the media, the National UFO Reporting Center, the Governor's office, and the police receiving a number of reports from people in Nevada of a very large craft hovering in the sky. Some people were reporting it as a boomerang formation of lights, just as Kurt describes in the video above. The object (or objects) began moving south towards Arizona where even more people would see it. Again, people were not reporting just lights hovering in the sky, they were reporting an actual solid object, a craft of some sort, spanning the size of one or two football fields. The witness reports detail lights, sometimes multiple lights, in a pattern that ranged from a few all the way up to a dozen, all in some sort of organized formation.

A distraught pensioner has called on council bosses to turn street lights back on after her car was trashed by vandals in the early hours of the morning. Patricia Hamer, who uses her car to run vital errands for her very ill husband, was brought to tears when she found the wing mirror of the VW Golf hatchback she had just had repaired had been smashed - meaning she couldn't drive it. The 74-year-old's neighbour also had their mirrors smashed up at the same time - at around 1am on Sunday, May...

It came with a choice of three responsive engines: a cooking 3.0 V6, a supercharged version and, at the top, a supercharged 4.2 V8. They all worked through an eight-speed auto and had super-fast stats. Even the slowest could get to 60mph in just over five seconds and top 160mph. Proper, old-school performance, then, with gadgets and nice touches like the fantastically noisy exhaust. Buyers got a lot of kit with the standard V6, so your half-price used F-Type will come with keyless ignition, touchscreen infotainment and all the usual driver aids and passenger comforts. It is worth finding an S derivative with that trick exhaust, sports suspension and a limited-slip differential. Lots of buyers reckon the optional 19in alloys are better-looking, plus there is leather inside and a designer console. There’s a whole range of different packs, too. Some are cosmetic and a bit pointless but others are useful, such as the Visibility Pack, which adds a heated front screen and automatic wipers and lights.

Our Golf goes in for its first service after reaching 18,000 miles, just after some warning lights pinged up on the dash Our Volkswagen Golf 's schedule is set to ‘long lifemode, and a warning indicator diligently popped up on the dashboard 300 miles before the first service was due at 18,000 miles. Then the tyre pressure warning indicator pinged up on the instrument panel a couple of days before the service and the ECU light joined it as I drove to Volkswagen Twickenham, so I mentioned them both while dropping the car off. Although the service seemed relatively pricey at just over £200 for an oil and filter change, it included an Express Visual Check, which gave me a written report on how much tread was left on the tyres and how worn the brake pads were. As someone with a busy life, I appreciated having these checks done for me. My mentions of the warning lights were heeded, too.

We see your glitter tears and barbed wire eyebrows , but if you really want to take beauty into the future, you'll at least consider these LED eyelashes. SEE ALSO: Anonymous found photos explore a century of hairstyles Dubbed F.Lashes , the illuminated eyelashes appear to change display animations depending on how you tilt your head or move your body. The LED eyelashes will come in pink, red, blue, light blue, white, yellow, green, and can be applied using normal eyelash glue, no elaborate cybernetic surgery required. Co-creator and Arduino designer Tien Pham showed the F.Lashes off on Friday. According to Pham, the lights on the LED eyelashes are powered by a tiny 3.3 volt watch battery and last about four hours. He also claims that they hold up well when exposed to sweat and don't emit any noticeable heat. Read more... More about Fashion , Wearables , Hacking , Beauty , and Makeup

Holocrons are holographic data storage devices used in the Star Wars universe by both Jedi and Sith as teaching devices or for storing valuable information. After the fall of the Jedi, they became rare and closely guarded artifacts. [DaveClarke] built one to light the room . [DaveClarke] built the lamp around a Particle Photon a STM32 ARM-M0 based microcontroller with a Cypress wifi chip. All [Dave] needed for the workings were an IR proximity sensor, a servo and a bunch of super-bright white LEDs. When the sensor detects something, it starts up the system. The servo rotates a gear which raises the lamp and fades in the LEDs. The next time the sensor detects something, the servo lowers the lamp and the lights begin to fade out. And since the Photon is connected to the cloud, the system can be accessed with a web interface as well. Okay, so it's just an IR sensor detecting reflected infrared light and not the Force that's used to turn it on, but it's still pretty cool.
