Getting a little too close with your computer screen? Check out our guide to making friends in Boston.

Have you ever wished there was an app like Uber, but for nature lovers? Then check out Ridj-it, a Boston-based online platform that’ll help you find adventure buddies and a ride to explore nearby lakes, mountains, and more. Ridj-it drivers must submit a valid driver’s license before they can lead a trip, and they’re also evaluated via user feedback afterward for riders’ safety. If you don’t feel like joining a carpooling group, you can still tag along by signing up for a trip on their website or in their over 15,000-person group, Boston Outdoor Adventures. The founders claim users who do carpool in a group have become lifelong friends — and even gotten married — after meeting through a Ridj-it ride. So, if you’re feeling bold, give it a shot.

ACC fashion, computer programing & anthropology students unite to study Austin flooding

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin Community College turned to some unique citizen scientists in a recent project examining flooding in Central Texas: fashion, UX design and anthropology majors. The project is part of the school’s Citizen Science Undergraduate Research Experience and is funded by National Science Foundation.

As part of the project, the students discovered some startling facts about who’s prepared for flooding, who is most impacted and how flooding impacts Barton Creek and Barton Springs.

“We spent a long time recruiting in a lot of other departments,” said Professor Leslie Davis, an oceanography instructor at ACC.

She said that turning to non-scientists helps bring a new perspective to their studies.

“You really want to draw from a diverse group of students.”

Eleven students were chosen for the program, out of dozens of applicants. Each participated in a five-week research

After 30 years, computer repair service still ‘about people’

WILBRAHAM – The small shop at 2785 Boston Rd. in Wilbraham is filled with shelving racks on which customers’ devices sit. There isn’t much space to move around in the small rooms, but the areas are used efficiently. Anywhere that isn’t taken up by electronic equipment is occupied by posters and models of various sci-fi franchises, mostly Star Wars.

“We’re all geeks,” said owner Aristeo Torres. The quirky nature of the shop belies the expertise of Torres, his partner Jan Macon and the five technicians that work under Torres’s tutelage at POST Computer Systems. The word POST in the business’s name is an acronym that stands for “power-on, self-test,” a diagnostic testing sequence that is used in computer repair.

POST Computer Systems began 30 years ago in Torres and Macon’s basement. Torres had the technological know-how, while Macon was the business manager. Since then, Torres has taught Macon about computers
