Craig Ferguson, keeping late night off balance - CNN.com
"Perhaps there are still some people asking, "Craig Ferguson who?" Too bad. They've been missing something special. The "Late Late Show" host shuffles off the stage Friday having hosted an eccentric decade of shows, a program that was often under the radar but always quietly, distinctively ... Craig Ferguson" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
Didn't realize his last show is tonight :( i knew he was leaving and all - Steve C Team Marina
Leno as final guest, tho?? - Big Joe Silence
finally gave Thompson some good screen time last night not playing Geoff or anyone else. - Big Joe Silence
Dang I'll have to find that online Joe thanks. - Steve C Team Marina
It's a bummer to me that he's moved on to game shows, but it was apparent to me some time ago that he'd become bored with running a talk show. - Spidra Webster
i hope he does something better than a game show in the near future. have you ever seen the archaeology documentary series he hosted in the early 90s called "Dirt Detective"? - Big Joe Silence
Yup. They were on YouTube for a while. - Spidra Webster
I had no idea he was leaving! That sucks. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Corden is taking over? Yech. - kendrak
I don't know who Corden is I'm afraid. - Steve C Team Marina
James Corden? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... He's alright, but a little obvious with his humour for my tastes. - kendrak
If you watch Doctor Who, you've seen James Corden in The Lodger and in Closing Time. Stormageddon's dad. - bentley
He was a charming man when I met him. For the two seconds we shook hands backstage lol. I'll miss his show. Suited my tastes. - Brent Schaus
From a 1999 article about Craig Ferguson: "Last July, [Craig Ferguson, Nigel Wick on The Drew Carey Show,] tied the knot with American love Sascha, his girlfriend of three years. Their wedding was a blend of elements that reflected the couple's backgrounds. A female rabbi officiated at the Jewish ceremony, though the bride walked down the aisle to the sound of bagpipes. And while Sascha... more... - bentley
Stormageddon's dad!! - Amit Patel
so Secretariat takes off its head and it's Bob Newhart. Geoff turns into the kitten from the "What did we learn on the show tonight" spot and then Craig wakes up in bed as his character from The Drew Carey Show next to Drew and then things get weird... Drew Carey looked nothing like Suzanne Pleshette, tho. - Big Joe Silence
Given the Hollywood Reporter tweet I just saw, it sounds like you're not far wrong. - Spidra Webster
i watched it, this is as it went down. i left out some of the good bits. - Big Joe Silence
I never did get down there to be in the audience. When I didn't own a car, their banning of backpacks (my purse is a backpack) made it impossible for me to do. When I finally got a car I was in school and it just wasn't as easy to do. I regret it. - Spidra Webster
he might guest host on Late Late Show at some point. and he's as much as said he'll likely do a similar format show again, just not on CBS. - Big Joe Silence
Yeah, but if I'd done it I could've gone when there was still a small intimate studio audience. :) - Spidra Webster
I wonder if any of his future work will be with "World Wide Pants?" That's Letterman's production company who owned]/owns Late Late Show. - WarLord

Taking the 100k Steps Fitbit Challenge and Raising Money for Charity
On Monday, Stephen and I have a crazy plan to set a new personal record for Fitbit steps. The goal? 100,000 steps in a single day, blowing away my previous personal best by more than 50 percent, and coming close to fifty miles walked - while also helping raise money for Camp Taylor, a free summer camp for children with heart disease, in memory of Riley Norton, the son of my friend and colleague Ken Norton. - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet
Who's this Stepeh guy? :) - Stephen Mack
No idea STEPHEN. NO IDEA. - Louis Gray
You go guys!! Maybe I'll try to join you for a lap - my next badge is at a measly 25K steps... - Ken Gidley
We'd love to have you for some or all, Ken! That's for everyone else here, too. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Hey Bruce, I think @Fitbit should be promoting this on their channels. :) - Louis Gray
What about … sleep?! - Amit Patel
Sleep is a waste of time and unproductive Amit. - Louis Gray
What could be a bigger waste of time than walking? - Todd Hoff
Not walking? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Walking or running for charity is never a waste of time. As a fellow charity racer and Fitbit fanatic, I'm proud of Louis and Stephen for being so awesome! I did 65K during my marathon day (29 miles total including walking to/from the race), so I know y'all can rock this so easy! Kick butt, gentlemen! <3 - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed

Scrolling back in time to the 9th, you can really see the advance against certain landmarks. I've looked into the crater of an active volcano and seen the lava bubbling inside, but I've never seen lava flow. It must be amazing to see it move (but not when it's coming towards people, of course). - bentley

Interesting. I had thought LEDs were still less light per watt than the sodium lamps used in streetlights… (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...) - Amit Patel
I've lived through every change of street lighting except gaslight. Every color change since incandescent has been jarring and seemed Wrong. Colors were always changed from "real". When my street switched to LEDs I was charmed. The first few nights seemed eerie. But in a way the street now looks more natural. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed

Tired and grumpy all week for some reason. Things are annoying me more than usual. Yesterday, storm news reports. This morning, emails from a random stranger who wants me to help him/her do some project, but he/she can't form a cohesive sentence to even explain what he/she is doing. Tomorrow, who knows?
Hearing about all the CIA crap made me grumpy. That nobody will go to jail seems to be a reoccurring pattern. But it looks like blue skies, at least for today. - Todd Hoff

Powerful, potentially damaging storm to bring very heavy rainfall and high winds to Northern California : California Weather Blog
Powerful, potentially damaging storm to bring very heavy rainfall and high winds to Northern California : California Weather Blog
"One additional thought: near-shore ocean temperatures off the coast of California remain exceptionally warm, which has been contributing to California’s record warmth this year. As witnessed during last week’s storm, these warm ocean waters have also led to a local increase in near-shore atmospheric instability during convective regimes and may also be acting as a source of additional lower-atmospheric moisture during storm events this winter. Thus, it’s possible that these exceptionally warm ocean temperatures could modestly boost precipitation rates associated with the upcoming heavy precipitation event, especially near the coast." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
It was definitely warm on the coast today. Some big waves too. - Todd Hoff

Just caught myself doing the four tap pattern that The Master was doing in Doctor Who. It made me wonder if you do something very unique like that in public, how long would it take before someone recognized it for what it was.

Young, Black and Frisked by the N.Y.P.D.
"These experiences changed the way I felt about the police. After the third incident I worried when police cars drove by; I was afraid I would be stopped and searched or that something worse would happen. I dress better if I go downtown. I don’t hang out with friends outside my neighborhood in Harlem as much as I used to. Essentially, I incorporated into my daily life the sense that I might find myself up against a wall or on the ground with an officer’s gun at my head. For a black man in his 20s like me, it’s just a fact of life in New York. Here are a few other facts: last year, the N.Y.P.D. recorded more than 600,000 stops; 84 percent of those stopped were blacks or Latinos. Police are far more likely to use force when stopping blacks or Latinos than whites. In half the stops police cite the vague “furtive movements” as the reason for the stop. Maybe black and brown people just look more furtive, whatever that means. These stops are part of a larger, more widespread problem — a... more... - Paul Buchheit from Bookmarklet
Horribly sad. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
It's institutionalized racism. It's when you cross the street with your kids because you see a black or brown guy walking towards you, regardless of how he's dressed or what he's doing. When you lock your car doors because the color of the neighborhood changes, regardless of the economic stature of the area. You see 3 or more black or brown guys hanging out and call them "thugs" or... more... - Anika

Considering that only about 5% of stops (regardless of color) result in arrests, it's hard to imagine how they even justify this practice. - Gabe

Bogus Journal Accepts Profanity-Laced Anti-Spam Paper | Scholarly Open Access
"After receiving a spam email from the International Journal of Advanced Computer Technology, Dr. Peter Vamplew of Federation University Australia’s School of Engineering and Information Technology sent the anti-spam article as a reply to the spam email without any other message, expecting that they might open it and read it, but not that it would be considered for publication. To his surprise, the journal accepted the paper and sent him an acceptance email that had two PDF attachments. One was a formal statement of acceptance and the second was the reviewer report." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"The screenshot above is from the acceptance letter. The following screenshot is from the review form, in which an anonymous reviewer indicated that the paper’s appropriateness for the journal is “excellent.” The peer reviewer’s report.

But they are! On the other hand, Figure 2 is a bit crude for publication. I think it's a stretch to say that *no* peer review was completed; it just wasn't a particularly tough peer review. Maybe the reviewer had a sense of humor, unlike...well, never mind. - Walt Crawford

More expensive to live near BART in dense areas. I'm not sure it's as expensive to live near BART in Concord or Walnut Creek, though, as people living out there tend not to take pubtrans as much. - Spidra Webster

C4 carbon fixation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"C4" plants use a different carbon chemistry than "C3" plants. They are more drought tolerant and remove significantly more CO2 from the atmosphere than C3 plants.

A ‘Stupidity’ Virus Has Been Discovered
"A virus known to attack green algae in lakes and rivers can also infect human brains -- and it’s making dummies out of us. The virus, called ATCV-1, can impair cognitive activity, learning and memory, essentially making a person who has the virus less intelligent, researchers in the U.S. have found. Scientists said this is the first time the virus has been observed in people." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
“This is a striking example showing that the ‘innocuous’ microorganisms we carry can affect behavior and cognition,” Robert Yolken, a virologist at Johns Hopkins Medical School in Maryland, who led the original study, told the Independent. All people have physiological differences “encoded in the set of genes each inherits from parents, yet some of these differences are fueled by the various microorganisms we harbor and the way they interact with our genes,” Yolken said. - Steve C Team Marina

I prefer living in places where the usual method of directions references intersections, not highways or landmarks.
Oh, you'd hate it in Nicaragua. https://vianica.com/nicarag... - bentley
bentley: madness. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Bentley, that actually helps explain so much when I was getting directions from some people earlier this year. They didn't know the address and the arriba and oriente designations meant nothing to me. But even in English, the word 'block' can be hard. I mean between actual named roads, but sometimes people count alleys which is bizarre. - Anika
I forget, does the article mention that many of these landmarks no longer exist?. Addresses sometimes refer (at least, they used to in the late 1970's) to the landmark's pre-1972 earthquake locations. When you're new in town, and an address starts with the former location of a restaurant called El Arbolito, what you hear is, "From where the little tree used to be..." - bentley
Yes it does. I laughed at that part, because when I give directions, I'll reference places that don't exist, mostly because I think they still should exist & refuse to accept the new buildings. If people didn't live in LA before 1995, they'll be assed out on some of my directions. - Anika
Yeah, I still refer to a certain parking structure in Ann Arbor as the Jacobson's parking structure, even though Jacobson's left in the 1980's. - bentley
Also, in Tokyo (or all of Japan?) many streets aren't named, but blocks are. And then buildings are numbered in each block by chronological order of construction rather than fixed location order. - Andrew C (✔)

Though Broadway kinda fucks things up for a bit, in the middle there. - Meg VMeg
Vancouver has Kingsway slicing a diagonal through the grid and SF has Market... - Andrew C (✔)
In my experience any town Like my St Paul which is platted around a river is going to be difficult to grid for streets. And difficult to navigate and we're prone to "turn by where The Golden Rule used to be" which is/was defunct clothing store closed when I was a small child... - WarLord

France: Big Cat on the Prowl Is Not a Tiger - ABC News
"A big, wild cat eluding 200 police and military forces near Disneyland Paris is not a tiger, French authorities said Friday — but they don't know exactly what it is. The creature popped up near a supermarket, crossed a major highway, slinked past a gas station, and sent regional officials into high alert. The administration for the Seine-et-Marne region had announced Thursday that authorities were searching for a tiger on the loose. But in a statement Friday afternoon, the administration said "the presence of an animal of the tiger species has proven to be excluded." The statement was based on analysis by government wild animal experts of the animal's tracks. It said the animal is a feline but they are still trying to determine its species. The hunting office could not be reached for comment. The animal's origins remain a mystery." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
