Amazon wants Alexa everywhere

CNN News Feed - Sat, 09/22/2018 - 15:14
Amazon won't make massive amounts of money off of its new $60 Alexa-controlled microwave. Or the Alexa controlled wall clock that only sets timers. In fact, making a profit from its growing selection of Alexa and Echo devices may be beside the point.

Cincinnati's New Brewery Trail Is Serving Up Craft Beer With a Side of History

Travel and Leisure - Sat, 09/22/2018 - 13:30
<p><a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/weekend-getaways/three-day-weekend-guide-cincinnati" target="_blank">Cincinnati</a> is paying tribute to its pre-Prohibition past.</p><p>On Friday, the city is opening the first phase of its <a href="http://brewingheritagetrail.org/" target="_blank">Brewing Heritage Trail</a>, an urban walking trail that invites visitors to learn about Cincinnati's brewing history by taking them through the Brewery District in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood.</p><img alt="Steve Hampton, a local architect and the part-time executive director of the nonprofit Brewery District Community Urban Development Corp., stands near a sign showing the history of the brewery district, in Cincinnati.

Linck Brewery — as well as "iconic signage" and public art installations.</p><p>In the late 1800s, there were a collective <a href="http://www.otrbrewerydistrict.org/history_district.php" target="_blank">17 breweries in Over-the-Rhine and West End</a> thanks to the thousands of German immigrants in Cincinnati. The 18th Amendment, however, rung in the Prohibition era. While only a few of the breweries survived, the area lays claim to <a href="https://cincinnatiusa.com/things-to-do/attractions/brewing-heritage-trail-tours" target="_blank">one of the country's largest collections of 19th-century brewery architecture</a> to this day. The Trail, <a href="http://www.otrbrewerydistrict.org/projects_masterplan_initiative_1_trail.php" target="_blank">in the works since 2011</a>, is just one of many projects that the <a href="http://www.otrbrewerydistrict.org/about_purpose.php" target="_blank">Brewery District Community Urban Redevelopment Corporation</a> (CURC) has initiated to "preserve, restore, and redevelop" the <a href="http://brewingheritagetrail.org/" target="_blank">city's history and Italianate architecture</a>.</p><p>"The Trail tells more than just how much we made and how much we drank; it is the story of American immigration, ingenuity, ethnic conflict, industrialization, the labor struggle ... and the impact of a constitutional amendment on local economies told through the production and consumption of a single commodity — beer," executive director Steven Hampton told <a href="http://www.ohio.org/blogs/2017/08/cincinnati%E2%80%99s-brewing-heritage-trail" target="_blank">Ohio.org</a>.</p><p>As you walk through the neighborhood, you can download the free <a href="http://brewingheritagetrail.org/download-the-app" target="_blank">Brewing Heritage Trail app</a> to take yourself on a self-guided audio tour of the area and to learn more about the city's history via photos, stories, and augmented reality experiences.</p><img alt="Findlay Market Biergaten sponsored by Christian Moerlein Brewing "src="https://cdn-image.travelandleisure.com/sites/default/files/styles/1600x1000/public/1537205713/findlay-market-beergarden-cincinnati-ohio-CINCYBEER0918.jpg?itok=ue2QSlyo"><p>For a more unique experience, you can also <a href="http://brewingheritagetrail.org/tours" target="_blank">sign up for any number of guided tours</a>, some of which grant special access to sections of the trail not open to the general public, like the subterranean lagering cellars of historic breweries.</p><p>Although you will be touring a city once heavily influenced by Prohibition, you will find no shortage of beer on several of these tours.</p><p>The Brunch, Beer, &amp; Breweries tour, for example, invites you to ride a streetcar through the Brewery District and sip on local craft beer at the award-winning <a href="https://www.moerleinlagerhouse.com/" target="_blank">Moerlein Lager House</a> (while you brunch your way through the brewpub's rich history, of course). Likewise, the Heritage &amp; Hops walking and bus tour takes you to three breweries for generous samples of craft beer.</p><p>And if you haven't had your fill of beer by the end of your tour, just know: <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/hotels-resorts/brewdog-beer-hotel-in-columbus-ohio" target="_blank">BrewDog's beer hotel</a> is only a two-hour drive away.</p><p><em>The Brewing Heritage Trail opens on Friday, September 21; sign up for a guided tour on their <a href="http://brewingheritagetrail.org/tours" target="_blank">website</a>.</em></p>

China Is Opening the 'World's First Underground Hotel' Inside an Abandoned Quarry

Travel and Leisure - Sat, 09/22/2018 - 13:02
<p>Some of the world’s most impressive hotel room views will be underground, starting in October.</p><p>The <a href="https://www.ihg.com/intercontinental/hotels/us/en/shanghai/shghe/hoteldetail" target="_blank">Intercontinental Shanghai Wonderland</a>, slated to open next month, will be unique for many reasons. But the most-eye popping is that <a href="https://www.lonelyplanet.com/news/2018/09/17/underwater-hotel-in-abandoned-quarry/" target="_blank">16 of the hotel’s 18 floors will technically be underground.</a></p><p>The hotel was built into the side of the abandoned Shenkeng Quarry in Songjiang, about 22 miles outside of <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-guide/shanghai" target="_blank">Shanghai</a>. It plummets 300 feet down to a pool of water at the bottom of the quarry.</p><p>The hotel will have 337 guest rooms and suites. Guests will be able to take in the impressive panoramic views from their room’s rounded balconies.</p><p>In addition to being an impressive architectural feat, the building is notable for its environmental impact. It creates its own power — including heat and lighting — through geothermal and solar energy, and the roof is covered in greenery.</p><p>Water runs throughout the structure. A waterfall, built into the center of the hotel, pours into the pool at the bottom of the quarry. The two bottommost floors are built completely underwater. One floor will have guest rooms and a restaurant, both facing an underwater aquarium. At the bottom of the building, there’s a sports complex that includes a swimming pool.</p><p>The quarry is located close to tourist attractions like the Chenshan Botanic Gardens and Sheshan National Park.</p><p>It took a team of more than 5,000 architects, engineers, designers and workers more than 10 years to complete the hotel.</p><p>Room rates are not yet available — but it is unlikely to come cheap. The hotel will be a five-star luxury experience when it opens in October.</p>

Your iPhone Has a Secret Texting Feature You Might Not Know About (Video)

<p>If you’ve ever wished there was a quicker way to easily edit your texts and notes when using your <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-news/new-iphones-xs-max-xr" target="_blank">Apple devices</a>, we’ve got good news for you.</p><p>Apple recently released its latest version of software available for its mobile devices and <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-tips/cool-gadgets/apple-ipad-pro" target="_blank">iPads</a> on Monday, and one of the most handy tools you can tap into through the new<a href="https://www.apple.com/newsroom/2018/09/ios-12-is-available-today/" target="_blank"> iOS 12</a> is its text editing shortcut.</p><p>With <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-news/apple-iphone-ios12-notifications" target="_blank">iOS 12</a>, Apple users who have devices that don’t automatically come with <a href="https://developer.apple.com/ios/3d-touch/" target="_blank">3D Touch</a> capability will now be able to utilize the feature.</p><p>For those not familiar with the 3D Touch capability, the feature allows users to quickly turn their devices keyboard into a trackpad to easily move the input cursor to points of interest when editing text.</p><p>While it is already available on the iPhone 6S and later devices like the iPhone 7, iPhone 7S, the iPhone 8, and iPhone XS, iOS 12 will now make it available across iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices regardless of their screen capability.</p><p>The feature works when Apple’s stock keyboard is open.

The First Full Day of Fall Will End With a Spectacular Harvest Moon (Video)

Travel and Leisure - Sat, 09/22/2018 - 11:00
<p>Is September's Harvest Moon the most famous full moon of the year? OK, so it's no <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-news/next-super-blue-blood-moon-eclipse" target="_blank">Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse</a>, but as the full moon that occurs closest to the <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-news/autumn-equinox-first-day-of-fall" target="_blank">fall equinox</a>, there's something special about our shining satellite on Sunday and Monday.</p><p>So <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/trip-ideas/space-astronomy/harvest-moon" target="_blank">what is a Harvest Moon</a> and how can you see it? Here's everything you need to know.</p><h2>Why is September's full moon called the Harvest Moon?</h2><p>It’s all about timing. Every 27.3 days, moon's orbit puts Earth between it and the sun, which makes the moon's surface as fully illuminated as possible, as seen from Earth. The Harvest Moon’s intense brightness means that farmers have historically been able to work in the fields late at night gathering in September’s crops.</p><p>For the same reason the Harvest Moon has also been called the Corn Moon. However, it's not just about the brightness of the moon, but when it rises and sets. During a full moon — and for a day or so on either side — our satellite rises above the eastern horizon close to when the sun sets in the west, and shines all night, sinking in the west as the sun rises in the east the next morning.</p><h2>When is the Harvest Moon?</h2><p>The Harvest Moon 2018 occurs at precisely 10:53 p.m. EDT on Monday, Sept. 24, 2018. On that day, the sun will set in the west at New York City at 6:49 p.m. EDT and the Harvest Moon will rise in the east at 7:01 a.m. 99 percent illuminated. It will be visible all night long, setting at 07:03 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, September 25. The sun will rise at 06:46 a.m. EDT.</p><h2>How to watch the Harvest Moon</h2><p>Due to it being so close to the fall equinox, there are a couple of opportunities to catch the Harvest moon. Normally, the moon rises around 50 minutes later each day. However, in the week or so around the fall equinox, celestial mechanics shorten that to about half an hour. So you can just as easily look at an almost-full moon close to sunset on Sunday, Sept. 23, when it rises at 6:33 p.m. EDT, just before sunset at 6:51 p.m. EDT.</p><h2>How to see the Harvest Moon</h2><p>The Harvest Moon, as with all full moons, will be best observed at moonrise and moonset, which is close to sunset and sunrise, respectively. That's because once the moon has risen around 10 degrees above the horizon, it's way too bright to observe comfortably.</p><p>Although it is possible to get a moon filter for a small telescope, all full moons give off way too much glare to look at easily for long with the naked eye. However, before it rises above 10 degrees in the sky in the east, it's a pale orange color, which then turns to pale yellow before brightening. This is the best time to look at it, not only because you will be able to see more detail, but because it's so low in the sky it’s likely to be visible between buildings, or above mountains. It just makes for a more interesting sight. For the same reasons, a full moonset is also an arresting sight.</p><h2>When is the next full moon?</h2><p>The next full moon will occur on Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2018 at 12:45 p.m EDT, precisely 27.3 days after the Harvest Moon. October's full moon is often called the Hunter's Moon because Native Americans and European settlers used to use the moonlight to go hunting in preparation for a long winter. However, you may be tempted to look up at our satellite a few days before the Hunter's Moon because Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018 is <a href="https://moon.nasa.gov/observe-the-moon/annual-event/overview" target="_blank">International Observe The Moon Night</a>.</p>

Scientists Find Ecstasy Makes Octopuses 'Gentle and Cuddly'

Travel and Leisure - Sat, 09/22/2018 - 10:51
<p>Would you like to cuddle an <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/attractions/zoos-aquariums/octopus-escapes-aquarium" target="_blank">octopus</a>? Turns out, all those tentacles really are great for hugging. At least, that is, when the party gets going.</p><p>A <a href="https://www.cell.com/current-biology/fulltext/S0960-9822(18)30991-6" target="_blank">study published in <i>Current Biology</i></a> in conjunction with Johns Hopkins University and the Marine Biological Laboratory shows that octopuses (<a href="https://www.merriam-webster.com/words-at-play/the-many-plurals-of-octopus-octopi-octopuses-octopodes" target="_blank">octopi?</a>), when given the party drug MDMA, also known as ecstasy or Molly, become much more “cuddly” than they are when sober.</p><p>Of course, one might assume that all creatures are more cuddly when taking ecstasy, since it drastically increases the activity of <a href="https://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/drugfacts/mdma-ecstasymolly" target="_blank">serotonin and dopamine</a>, but the finding is a little more intriguing for octopuses. Unlike more socially inclined humans, the mighty octopus is a far more solitary creature — definitely not one for raving under strobe lights.</p><p>The experiment conducted, <a href="http://fortune.com/2018/09/20/octopuses-ecstasy-cuddly/" target="_blank"><em>Fortune</em></a> reported, involved placing a “hand-sized” octopus in the center chamber of a three-chambered tank. On one side there was a colorful object and on the other was another octopus, protected inside a small cage.</p><p>Fascinatingly, while sober, the octopus spent more time with the object, but when it was given a mild dose with MDMA, it favored the other octopus.</p><p>According to <a href="https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2018/09/20/648788149/octopuses-get-strangely-cuddly-on-the-mood-drug-ecstasy" target="_blank">NPR</a>, scientists chose a specifically low dose of MDMA, since higher doses gave a profoundly different result. “They really didn't like it. They looked like they were freaked out," Johns Hopkins neuroscientist Gül Dölen told NPR. "They were just taking these postures of super hypervigilance. They would sit in the corner of the tank and stare at everything."</p><p>But at lower doses, Dölen told NPR that the octopus was “essentially hugging” the other one.</p><p>What does this mean for science (other than octopuses are cuter than we thought)? Judit Pungor, a neuroscientist at the University of Oregon, told NPR, “I was absolutely shocked that it had this effect...They have this huge complex brain that they've built, that has absolutely no business acting like ours does — but here they show that it does. The fact that they induced this very sort of gentle, cuddly behavior is really pretty fascinating.”</p><p>“It just shows us how much we don't know and how much there is out there to understand,” Zachary Mainen, a neuroscientist at the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown in Portugal, told NPR.</p><p>Perhaps we’re not so different from the octopuses after all.</p><p>People on Twitter can certainly relate to these cooler, chiller cephalopods.</p><p> </p>

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park Is Reopening This Weekend, but It Won't Be Quite the Same

Travel and Leisure - Sat, 09/22/2018 - 08:14
<p>After months of anticipation, <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/trip-ideas/national-parks/hawaii-volcanoes-national-park-reserve" target="_blank">Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park</a> will <a href="https://www.nps.gov/havo/learn/news/20180917_pr_reopening.htm" target="_blank">reopen</a> to the public on Saturday, Sept. 22.</p><p>While the park is reopening many trails and key attractions, it will be missing one of the elements that has made it so famous over the years — its lava.</p><p>Most of the park closed on Friday, May 11 as a result of <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-news/hawaii-volcano-eruption-laze-is-it-safe-to-visit" target="_blank">eruptions and seismic activity</a> at the summit of Kīlauea. The natural disaster depleted the lava lake inside the Halemaʻumaʻu Crater and the lava flows from Puʻu ʻŌʻō. </p><p>"There is <a href="https://www.nps.gov/havo/planyourvisit/lava2.htm" target="_blank">no molten lava</a> or lava glow to see anywhere in or out of the park," the park's website warns.</p><p>The changes mark the first time in years the park has no lava for visitors to see, <a href="https://www.nps.gov/havo/learn/news/20180831_pr_reopening.htm" target="_blank">according to park representatives</a>, though there are several <a href="https://www.nps.gov/havo/learn/news/20180831_pr_reopening.htm" target="_blank">famed trails and locations</a> open to explore again.</p><p>These include the Crater Rim Trail between Volcano House and the Kilauea Military Camp, the Sulphur Banks Trail, the Kīlauea Iki Overlook, Devastation Trail, portions of the Crater Rim Drive to the Keanakāko'i Crater (open to pedestrians and cyclists only), the Mauna Loa Road, the Chain of Craters Road, sections of the Escape Road from Highway 11, the Kīlauea Visitor Center, and the Hawaii Pacific Parks Association store at the visitor center.</p><p>Sept. 22 also marks <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-news/national-parks-free-entry-2018" target="_blank">National Public Lands Day</a>, meaning visitors will get free entrance into the park. </p><p>Those planning to visit will want to head to the park early (opening time is 10 a.m.), as representatives say to expect heavy traffic and lengthier lines as parking around the summit has been reduced by a third. </p><p>Visitors should use <a href="https://www.nps.gov/havo/learn/news/20180912_pr_reopening_safety.htm" target="_blank">safety precautions</a> including avoiding hiking at night or on closed trails, hiking with at least one other person as the park is dotted with open holes that can often be covered by vegetation, staying away from cliff edges to avoid potential rockfalls in the still-fragile area, and wearing protective eyewear as whirlwinds of ash can still arise in locations like the Kaʻū Desert.</p><p>Visitors will also want to bring at least two quarts of drinking water per person, as the water in the park is still unsafe to drink at this time, along with snacks and a full tank of gas for those who are driving. </p>
