Most Saturday mornings Kurt Kahl is in a rush. Either the high-adrenaline rush from riding his mountain bike or the rush from taking off on the perfect head-high wave on his surfboard. “I tell people that our team designed the Telluride to be the kind of vehicle we would want to own,” he says. “Something that would work with my lifestyle. Something big enough to take all my gear. Something with three rows for my wife and I to take friends out for a fun night.” As senior design manager at Kia Design Center America, in Irvine, California, Kahl leads the team that conceptualized and created the new, three-row, Telluride. “Pretty much the entire design team here is into adventure sports,” he says. “We live to ride bikes, surf waves, hike trails.” He says he designed the Telluride accordingly, so it had to be big and practical, with no coupe-like rear end compromising load space or headroom. Take out the tape measure and you get an idea of … [Read more...] about SPONSORED CONTENT: Making the New Kia Telluride

Burning Questions Burning Questions is The Takeout's Q&A feature that satiates your food and drink curiosities Most of us assume that extra virgin olive oil, or sometimes EVOO in recipe shorthand, is the good stuff. After all, cookbooks call for it specifically, and it even has “extra” right there in its name. But what about its non-extra-virgin siblings that might just be labeled “olive oil” or “light-tasting olive oil”? Are they inferior oils for bargain-hunting plebeians too cheap to pony up for the good stuff? Not exactly. In fact, if you’re using olive oil in a delicately flavored dish, you may even prefer the standard stuff. Here’s why. Defining extra-virgin olive oil Extra-virgin olive oil is essentially the oil that’s pressed out of olives once the water and pulp parts are removed. It can’t be heated up or have any chemicals added to it. (Those standards are mostly set by non-government groups such as the … [Read more...] about What is non-extra virgin olive oil, and when should I use it?

Here a bee is held in a container that allows air to flow through while a camera detects its response. The container is designed for use at security checkpoints (airports, military bases, etc.) to check for explosives. Los Alamos National Laboratory Back in 1988, two entomologists, Joe Lewis and Jim Tumlinson, joined in a project that, for the first time, uncovered the ability of an insect to learn through association. It was, at the time, not only novel, it was also an out-and-out revelation. An insect — in this case, the parasitic wasp (Microplitis croceipes), which feeds on and eventually kills certain agricultural pests — could learn in a most-basic way. Think Pavlov's dogs, except smaller and buzzier. From that study and other similar research — by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the Stealthy Insect Sensor Project at the Los Alamos National Lab, for two — we have spun forward to the point where honeybees now have successfully … [Read more...] about Bees Are Smart But Don’t Try Training Them at Home
