This is his fourth consecutive No. 1 solo album.
Hydrogels are made of hydrophilic polymer chains that absorb up to 90 percent water. They’ve shown significant potential in everything from wound dressings to soft robots, but their applications have been limited from their lack of toughness – until now. A team of scientists at Hokkaido University have developed a new set of hydrogel composites or “fiber-reinforced soft composites” that combine hydrogels with woven fiber fabric to create a material that is five times stronger than carbon steel.

Amazon has announced some major changes in how they pay affiliates once again and I’m going to be making some changes here as a result. This Daily Deal post, for example, takes quite a bit of time to create each day and I’ll be dropping it as a feature. I’ll still check the daily deals and post any that look interesting, but not all of them in detail. Instead, I’ll be using that time to create more posts of new and bargain books that aren’t in the Daily Deals. My current plan is to still post the free MP3s from eMusic and Naxos and the free book from Packt, but only if it isn’t a duplicate of one I’ve posted before. I’ve had suggestions that I allow indie authors to purchase an ad or guest post, no more than one per day. What are your thoughts? Any features you don’t read or wish there were more of? Feel free to leave me a comment below.

WEST MILFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — New Jersey police have arrested a man in connection to a burglary in Passaic County last week.
West Milford Police arrested 21-year-old Austin Demarest, of Hewitt, for allegedly entering an unlocked home on Riverside Road and stealing jewelry, collectible coins, and loose change.
The homeowner’s juvenile son disrupted the burglary when he came home from school, according to police.
Demarest is charged with one count of burglary and one count of theft. Police say he’s the primary and only suspect in two other burglaries in the same area, which both remain under investigation.

Where is Melissa McCarthy when you need her??
Sean Spicer is completely losing control of the White House, and an incredible new report in POLITICO details exactly how bad Sean’s been at his communications job of late.
According to the political news outlet, Spicer held an “emergency” meeting with the entire White House communications staff last week — only the meeting wasn’t about anything.
Instead, it was a ruse to get every single staffer in a room, take their government-issued and personal cell phones, and look through all the devices to try to figure out who is leaking so much administration info to the press.
He admonished the group of staffers about leaks, after which that meeting immediately leaked out to POLITICO, and now we’re reporting on it!
Spicey has lost control of his team!!!
Here’s how it all went down, according to the news outlet’s leaked source info:
“Upon entering Spicer’s office for what one person briefed on the gathering described as ‘an emergency meeting,’ staffers were told to dump their phones on a table for a ‘phone check,’ to prove they had nothing to hide. Spicer, who consulted with White House counsel Don McGahn before calling the meeting, was accompanied by White House lawyers in the room, according to multiple sources. There, he explicitly warned staffers that using texting apps like Confide — an encrypted and screenshot-protected messaging app that automatically deletes texts after they are sent — and Signal, another encrypted messaging system, was a violation of the Presidential Records Act, according to multiple sources in the room. The phone checks included whatever electronics staffers were carrying when they were summoned to the unexpected follow-up meeting, including government-issued and personal cellphones.”
This administration is horrified and running scared because their own staffers don’t believe the bullshit and misdirection they constantly spew.
At some point here, heads have to roll.
It’s becoming abundantly clear that Spicer has not only lost control of his communications staff, but the administration as a whole can’t plug leaks coming out of staffers from all corners who recognize Donald Trump‘s gross incompetence and repeated problems.
Read the whole report about leaks and emergency ‘meetings’ HERE.
Surely, The Donald can’t be happy about Spicer’s inability to lead his staff!
More rappers need to do stuff like this.
