City of Boston Archaeology Program The boyhood home of influential black activist Malcolm X has turned out to be a fascinating archaeological site.Rodnell Collins — Ella's son, who owns the house today — plans to restore the home, possibly to turn it into apartments for graduate students studying civil rights, social justice or African-American history, according to the National Trust for Historic Preservation."I wish it hadn't happened, but we're recovering a lot of materials that were in the house that the family hadn't seen since the looting in the '70s," Bagley told Live Science, adding that Rodnell Collins has been able to identify toys that he played with and pieces of his mother's mixing bowl.Surprisingly, the excavators discovered a foundation for a previously unknown structure and a hoard of artifacts from the 18th century, including clay wig curlers and expensive ceramics that indicate there was a wealthy person's home there more than 200 years ago."We're finding thousands of artifacts from at least 100 years before the house was built," Bagley said.For example, they posted a picture of a broken gold, plastic disc found at the site, and within minutes, someone had identified it as a trading stamp token from a store called Sav-A Coin in South Carolina.

Rogers @RogersWrites July 27, 2016The task of vouching for a candidate s character has traditionally fallen to the would-be first lady.In his wide-ranging and largely ad-libbed speech, President Clinton spun the tale of his decades-long relationship with his wife—from the day they met in 1971 at Yale Law School to the first time he visited her childhood home in Park Ridge, Illinois, to the day he asked her to marry him … and she finally accepted.
I suddenly found myself reminiscing about how my mother sung me to sleep that night in my childhood home.These are not things that you can ever forget.Countless nights come and go, some spent anxiously looking forward to the first day at work, others dawdled off casually in some luxurious hotel, but none can match the serene nobility of being tucked in each night before bed.And yet, I find myself craving for nostalgia every now and then.I know I am speaking of an ancient time, but I can t help but feel that those periods possessed their own innate charms.Many will argue that banning all electronics from your bedroom is the key to a good night s sleep, but there is actually a thousand ways in which a smart bedroom can help you sleep better.

Long before anyone worried about drones crashing through the front window, winemaker Paul Masson built a chateau in the hills above Saratoga.Now it s for sale.You can have it for $7 million — not bad in the Silicon Valley real estate market, where paying upwards of $5 million for a house somehow doesn t register as a big deal anymore.Born in 1858, Masson grew up in France and patterned his chateau — built in 1936 — after his childhood home in Burgundy.With its turret and pitched slate roof, it s a grand place: 4,897 square feet with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and a wine cellar, overlooking vineyards on three-plus acres.Extensively renovated about a decade ago by its current owners, the kitchen counter is an antique, imported from a French butcher shop.Have a look right here.But whoever buys this spread will get something additional: history.As the story goes, says Patricia Anderson, the Coldwell Banker agent who listed the house this month, Paul Masson s daughter would play the organ in the turret.She would sit there, I m told, and look out the window and see who was coming up the path.And who might that be?Why, Charlie Chaplin, who attended Masson s parties.

Publisher Square Enix announced a collection of PlayStation VR-exclusive content bundled with the upcoming PlayStation 4 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider, revealing that players will soon be able to freely explore series star Lara Croft s childhood home from a first-person perspective.Fans hoping for a pleasant tour through series history should beware, however, as Croft Manor hides chilling secrets throughout its dimly lit corridors and PlayStation VR support adds a first-person psychological horror element.Rise of the Tomb Raider s PlayStation VR support is limited to the game s exploration-based Blood Ties chapter, which was previously released as downloadable content for the Xbox One edition.The upcoming PS4 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider bundles all previously issued add-on content alongside its core single-player campaign.Chronologically positioned part-way through the main story and selectable as one of a handful of additional extras from the main menu, this side-quest sees Lara returning home to unravel a family mystery, Sony s Gillen McAllister explains.Croft needs to explore her surroundings, piece together clues, and uncover secrets to learn how to reclaim the dilapidated Croft Manor as her own.
It's a milestone of which Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics are all too aware, so to commemorate this momentous occasion, October will see the release of Rise of The Tomb Raider 20 Year Celebration, a redux of last year s Tomb Raider featuring three brand-new modes.Yet while it would've been easy enough to just cobble together a few quick pieces of fan service, this anniversary package sees the team at Crystal Dynamics exploring Lara s past while giving us a few glimpses into what we might expect to see from her in the future.Inheriting the series from Core Design after 2003 s poorly received Angel of Darkness, Crystal Dynamics was tasked with reviving a franchise that was on its last legs.After a timed console exclusive saw the initial Rise of the Tomb Raider launch come only to Xbox One and PC, next month sees the game finally make its way to PS4.Receiving a letter from her uncle threatening to take Croft Manor away from her, Lara returns to her childhood home in search of her father s will, in a bid to fend off the uncle once and for all.Taking yet more inspiration from Uncharted, Blood Ties sees you wandering around a dark, cluttered and secret-filled Manor, finding clues and reading letters that help reveal the story behind Lara s upbringing.

Android's gatekeeper vies for the mobile virtual reality crown.The Google Daydream View, controller and Google Pixel smartphone.The daunting number of novelty smartphone-powered VR kits has reached absurd levels at this point, with more and more tech companies looking to ride the wave of the 'next big thing in tech', but only succeeding in further saturating an already muddled and confused emergent field.Whether it's the soft, cushioned padding around the eyes or the cool, breathable material, strapping yourself into the Daydream View is as snug and enjoyable in the fifth minute as it is the fiftieth.Various smartphone manufacturers have pledged support for Daydream, which poses a design problem on paper considering the variety of devices with different dimensions that are expected to fit in the View.The front flap and overall design of the phone compartment abates a lot of these fears though, as a pair of stretchable plastic hinges results in a universal holder for your smartphone and even those protected with a case .
I ve been into virtual reality since the very first Samsung Gear VR was released in 2015.It was only a developer s version and had its faults, but was one of the most fascinating pieces of technology I had ever used.Last year, I wrote a controversial piece on the consumer version of the Gear VR and why mine was gathering dust.Still, the Gear VR isn t as mobile as it should be for virtual reality, and that s where Google s new Daydream View headset, which sells for $79, comes in.The Daydream View looks and feels like something you would find at an expensive clothing accessory store rather than Best Buy.But everything is fine once you put the headset on and enter the virtual reality world.
