02. Spread no more: Denmark bans Marmite

“According to the advert, you either love it or hate it. As far as Marmite goes, it seems that Denmark hates the stuff. That at least is the conclusion that many foreigners have drawn following a ban on the sticky brown yeast extract.” (Guardian)

03.Robots develop language to ‘talk’ to each other

“Robots are developing their own language to help them navigate and improve their intellectual ability. The Lingodroid research project lets robots generate random sounds for the places they visit in both simulations and a real office. The “words” are shared and the robots play games to establish which sound represents which location.” (BBC)

04. Top 10 Hip-Hop Soundtracks

“Movie soundtracks aren’t what they used to be. And I’m not saying that as an old head lamenting on the “good ole days.” The ‘90s and early 2000s saw a lot of hip-hop’s major figures contributing new and unreleased songs to movie soundtracks making for a superb compilation with a thematic feel. Imagine if Jay-Z, Nas, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, The Roots, Common, Mos Def, Talib Kweli or any other top notch hip-hop artists recorded new songs for a soundtrack that isn’t on any of their albums. It would be an epic collection, to say the least.” (Street Census)
