POLAR BEAR: SPY ON ICE

I find this absolutely fascinating! Award-winning director John Downer had disguised one of his remote-controlled spy cameras as a large snowball to capture the journey of a polar bear mother and her cub crossing the sea ice in Svalbard, Norway. Check it out over hereDid anyone catch the special on Animal Planet when it aired on March 10th?

BEFORE I DIE

Check out this rad piece of street interactive street art in New Orleans. Public installation artist and urban planner Candy Chang spent $300 of her own money and many, many hours creating the "Before I Die" board in her New Orleans neighborhood. "I turned the side of an abandoned house in my neighborhood into a giant chalkboard with grids that say, “Before I die I want to _______.” Residents can use chalk to write on the wall and remember what is important to them in life."

HIPMUNK

I can't say enough about the ease of using Hipmunk.com to book flights. I was at the gym reading Fast Company when I came across an article about how convenient this flight search website is to use. I was struggling while working with a travel agent because I needed to see different options. What can I say, I like options. I ended up finding a better price on my international flights. The bonus: the price you see is the final price, including all taxes and fees.
