    Essentials Week spotlights unexpected items that make our daily lives just a little bit better. Here's a bad situation: You're strolling outside in the cold, perhaps on your way to a doctor's appointment or a performance of The Nutcracker, and you realize your lips are a little chapped. You reach into your coat pocket for some Chapstick. It's not there. No worries; you'll use the tube in your bag. You unzip the back pocket of your bag (best pocket for Chapstick — easy access) and root around in there. No Chapstick. God. Your lips will never feel moisture again.

    TL;DR: Add something unique to your kitchen with the 5-Piece Professional Damascus Chef's Kitchen Set for $152.99.  Before all the passionate steel aficionados out there decide to chime in, allow us to offer a disclaimer: No, the Damascus steel on these chef's knives was not actually forged by a Syrian bladesmith in the Levant several hundred years ago. However, this modern-day reproduction still features the steel's distinct flowing pattern and each blade is extremely sharp and strong. Glad we got that out of the way.

They'd offer an unconvincing "thanks" before setting it aside and unwrapping something else. We get it. But the thing is: it's not a regular notebook. It's an electric notebook.

    We can't all drive teched-out cars like a Tesla Model 3, with its touchscreen and phone app that can bring the car to you in a parking lot.  Sure, some car owners can use Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to text and listen to podcasts, but then the rest of us are driving practically blind with no proximity sensor warnings and only the radio for our entertainment. But those of us with "dumb" cars don't have to stay that way.

    The nofollowing contains mild spoilers for Netflix's 6 Underground.  "A glorious clusterfuck."  That's how "One," a billionaire-turned-vigilante played by Ryan Reynolds, recounts his crew's inaugural mission. It's an apt descriptor for the havoc the six rogues inflict on the city of Florence in 6 Underground's opening scene, but it's just as fitting a summary of Michael Bay's Netflix debut overall.  A high-octane thrill ride as stupid as it is bloody, the streaming service's biggest play in the action genre delivers everything a subscriber could want from the Transformers director and a (...) -- Netflix, Ryan Reynolds, Streaming Services, Michael Bay, 6 Underground

    Way back in 1984, the Ghostbusters defended New York City from an onslaught of supernatural phenomena. In their honor, [BALES] created this costume for Halloween, replete with an amazing replica proton pack.

We might do the same, except it’d just be us versus the wall, and most of the exercise would consist of bending over to pick the ball up off the floor.

    That’s a warning sign. So is, “I don’t know how it would fail.” In the first case, you haven’t thought deeply enough (or don’t have enough experience) to imagine how your solution might not work in every case. The best way to make your work better is to get more imaginative about how it could fail to resonate with those you seek to serve. And in the second, once you can imagine that it might not work, it’s really helpful to imagine what failure actually entails. What breaks? What are the side effects? How will you recover?

    We always marvel at how open-source tools can often outstrip their commercial counterparts. Yosys, the open-source tool for Verilog synthesis, is a good example. Although the Xilinx ISE design suite is something close to abandonware, a lot of people still use it because it supports older FPGAs the newer tools don’t. Its Verilog parser is somewhat slow to catch up to new standards, and according to a recent GitHub update, Yosys can now provide files for ISE that target Spartan 6, Virtex 7, and Series 7 FPGAs. In addition, there is some support for Spartan 3, Virtex 2, 4, and 5, although (...) -- FPGA, fpga, verilog, xilinx, yosys

    When you hear the name “Tesla”, chances are good that thoughts turn instantly to the company that’s trying to reinvent the motor vehicle and every industry that makes it possible. While we applaud the effort, it’s a shame that they chose to appropriate the surname of a Serbian polymath as their corporate brand, because old [Nikola] did so many interesting things in his time, and deserves to be remembered in his own right. Take the Tesla valve. In essence a diode for fluids, the Tesla valve uses a tortuous path to allow flow in one direction but severely restrict it in the other. (...) -- Misc Hacks, combustion, explosion, fluid dynamics, propane, Tesla valve, turbulence

    Gerald Cotten died unexpectedly in December of 2018, but don't try telling that to the people who lost millions worth of cryptocurrency as a result.  The then 30-year-old founder of the Canadian cryptocurrency exchange QuadrigaCX was traveling in India when he reportedly died from complications resulting from Crohn's disease. His former customers, however, suspected foul play — and now, reports Coindesk, they want Cotten's body exhumed.  Why?
