Judging from the logo you would think this post is about picnics. It's actually about Picnik, the free photo editing website.
Picnik allows you upload your photos to their website for editing. They have editing tools ranging from basic edits to airbrushing. You can resize the photo, change its exposure, and brighten or darken the photo, and more; these tools are all located under the heading "Basic Edits." Under "Featured," you can add the effect "Cross Process," whiten teeth, and much more. You can also add different effects such as "Black and White" or "Lomo-ish," under "Effects." You can add text and stickers to your photos like a scrapbook under "Text" and "Stickers." Along with all of this you can touch up you pictures (under "Touch-Up"), add a frame (under "Frames"), add other effects such as "Burning" or "Clone" (under "Advanced"), as well as add seasonal stickers to your photos (under "Seasonal"). After editing, you can save your edited pictures to your computer or upload it to websites like Picasa, Twitter, and Facebook. Unfortunately, Picnik will be closing on April 19, 2012. However, now their premium features are free for everyone!
There are a lot of new movies in theaters now but one of the movies that cought my attention was Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. This move is about a dad who died in the 9/11 attack while being in the World Trade Center. His son Oskar thought his dad left him a hidden message that was left for him in New York City. The boy goes to New York City to go on a hunt for a lock that fits this mysterious key he found in his dad closest hoping to find the message. Along this hunt the boy discovers many new thing about life that he never even knew.

One of the movies coming out soon is The Hunger Games. Many people are obsessed with all the books, written by Suzanne Collins, and are looking forward to the movie being released on March 23. The film features many famous stars, including The Last Song star, Liam Hemsworth, as well as Elizabeth Banks and many other actors. The film takes place in the future where boys and girls are selected to fight on live television. When Jennifer Lawrence's character, Katniss Everdeen's younger sister, Prim, is chosen to fight to death, she decides to take her place. Gale Hawthorne, played by Liam Hemsworth, is Katniss's best friend and Josh Hutcherson is starring as her love interest, Peeta Mellark. Overall, with all the drama and excitement the movie is very highly anticipated.

New robots called quadcopters have been invented at the University of Pennsylvania. These small robots are some of the first that can have coordinated actions, such as flying in a figure-eight shape. They are also very agile and can do things such as flip over, land, change directions, and move around obstacles. This is significant because these robots could eventually replace human search teams. Sometimes people have to search in dangerous conditions, such as when a major earthquake or a tsunami happens. The robots could guarantee the safety of many people who risk their lives to search for others in a dangerous situation. While people are still looking for a way to program groups of robots at a time, rather than having to program each one manually, this is still a big scientific advance and may help many people in the future.
