How To Watch American Netflix In Canada

My Intern Hazen tipped me off to this free DNS service that allows you to watch Netflix (and other US Geo-restricted content) outside of the good ol’ US of A! For free! (Did I mention that it’s free?)

These guys are calling themselves Tunlr.

I love these services. Unlike VPN services, with these DNS redirects your streams don’t get slowed down by being  proxied through a US server.

We set it up on our AppleTV and it works like a charm!

Get started with AppleTV

  1. Open Settings
  2. Open General
  3. Open Network
  4. Open Configure TCP/IP
  5. Select Manually (we assume you already have a fully functional network setup)
  6. Skip IP address by selecting Done (hit the left button on the remote and press OK)
  7. Skip Subnet Mask by selecting Done
  8. Skip Router Address by selecting Done
  9. When asked for the DNS address, enter: 149.154.158.186
  10. Select Done
  11. Select Restart in the General menu

If you don’t see the Netflix App in the main menu, you have to change your iTunes store location:

  1. Open Settings
  2. Open iTunes Store
  3. Open Location
  4. Select United States
  5. Go back to the Settings menu
  6. Select Restart in the General menu

Once you start Netflix for the first time, it may take a while until the log in dialog appears (give it at least a minute).

NOTE: I should mention, that if you have a number of devices on your home network that you wish to use to access US services, you’re probably better off setting your router’s DNS to 149.154.158.186.

Anna Franz – Ink injection into yolk sac artery of 72 hour-old chick embryo to visualize the beating heart and the vasculature (10x)

What is the subject matter of your winning entry?

This movie not only demonstrates the power of the heart and the complexity of the vasculature of the chick embryo, but also reflects the beauty of nature’s design.

Can you elaborate on the imaging technique you used to capture this movie?

This technique is relatively easy and quick: A window is cut into an egg to expose the 72h old chick embryo. The embryo is then placed under a stereo microscope. A finely drawn glass capillary needle is filled with India ink and then inserted into an extraembryonic yolk sac artery. Some ink is gently expelled from the needle and the distribution of the ink in the vasculature is followed by time-lapse microscopy. The only challenging part of this technique is the insertion of the needle into the artery without spilling too much ink and without damaging the embryo.

How does this subject matter relate to your work?

I study centriole duplication using Drosophila as a model organism. I am currently doing a PhD in developmental biology studying centriole duplication in Drosophila. In 2010 I took a 6-week course in embryology in Woods Hole where I learnt several techniques used to study embryogenesis in a number of organisms. One of these techniques was the injection of ink into an artery with the aim to visualize the vasculature of the chick embryo.

What first sparked your interest in photomicrography?

When I was a child, my parents got me a simple microscope which I used to look at insects and plants. I became fascinated by microscopy because it reveals the complexity of biological structures most of which our eyes can’t see. Later I decided to studied biology at university where I could combine microscopy with photography.

Amy Winehouse – found dead

Troubled soul singer Amy Winehouse, who had been attempting a comeback after a few years battling drug and alcohol addiction, has been found dead in her London home, according to British media reports.

Sky News and BBC reported police sources as confirming the 27-year-old singer’s death.

London police issued a statement Saturday saying an unnamed 27-year-old female had been pronounced dead at the scene at a home in north London.

“Inquiries continue into the circumstances of the death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained,” said Metropolitan Police.

Erratic performances forced tour cancellation

The singer showed up nearly an hour late for a concert in June at Belgrade’s Kalemegdan Park and disappointed the crowd of approximately 20,000 by stumbling about, mumbling through her songs and occasionally exiting the stage — leaving her bewildered band and backup singers performing in her place.

The concert was to be the first of a 12-date tour, which was cancelled soon after.

Winehouse rose to fame in 2006 with the success of her sophomore album Back to Black, which featured the smash hit song Rehab. In 2008, she won five Grammy Awards — including best new artist and record of the year — but her ongoing struggles with substance abuse, erratic onstage behavior, legal battles and other personal problems have overshadowed her musical achievements.

Though she was flooded with a variety of musical accolades over the years, the performer made headlines in Britain and worldwide for her increasingly erratic behavior, disheveled appearance, poor performance at recent concerts and substance abuse problem.

Winehouse also had a tumultuous marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil, whom she married in 2007. They had many public spats, which often turned violent. The couple divorced in 2009.

She had also sought help for psychiatric and alcohol and drug abuse problems.

“No Surprise” Lyrics:
If you need me, I will run to you
And if you call me out of the blue I will run to catch you as you fall on me
And it’s no surprise that you’ll soon forget about me

So slow it down
Take it easy

If you want me, I will be right here
And if you love me you will notice me here

But it’s no surprise that your eyse are crying my name
And it’s no surprise that your eyes are seeing the same

So slow it down
Take it easy

So slow it down
Take it easy
