Ikea Malmö (yeah, that's my town) moved from their old boring building in the outskirts to a shiny new one near the Svågertorp train station. The new Ikea is much larger, recycles everything, and uses only green electricity to boot in order to become the first Ikea with the smallest carbon footprint.

One Laptop per Child (OLPC) is a non-profit humanitarian organization whose purpose is to provide educational opportunities to the world’s poorest children by giving each and every one a connected, rugged, low-cost laptop. This video tells the story of hope using the alphabet and a simplistic animation style. Real photography was married with childlike drawings bringing to life an otherwise desolate landscape.

Todays Crazy ad was erected by Phil Wolf, the owner of a local auto dealership, and it has gotten a lot of attention. After putting up a controversial billboard about President Barack Obama asking for POTUS' birth certificate, complete with a turban caricature of the president next to the word Jihad?, Wolf's phone has been ringing off the hook with reactions to it.
Wolf says he initially drew the billboard on a napkin and then had an artist paint it. The sign, which was completed Friday, is visible to drivers on Interstate 70 near Kipling Street.
"I can't say I expected everything that's been going on with the responses we got," Wolf said.
He says his business has been overwhelmed with phone calls. Some callers have threatened both Wolf and his employees.
