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

Instagram makes teens and celebrities angry by killing millions of spambots | The Verge - http://www.theverge.com/2014...
LMAO. Although that is a pretty massive drop. "A crackdown on spam Instagram accounts has triggered a cataclysm in the world of low-grade social media celebrities. The event, which began today after the photo-sharing service made good on its promise to start deleting millions of fake accounts, has been dubbed the "Instagram Rapture" after the follower counts of apparently popular Instagrammers were savaged. Jenni Farley, maybe better known as Jersey Shore's JWoww, saw her followers drop from 2.6 million to 115,000, while rapper Ma$e committed Instagram's version of seppuku, deleting his account after freefalling from 1.6 million followers to around 100,000." - rönin from Bookmarklet

North Korea Is Not Funny - Let's be clear: "The Interview" isn't a courageous act of defiance against a dictator - The Atlantic http://www.theatlantic.com/interna...
"This film is not an act of courage. It is not a stand against totalitarianism, concentration camps, mass starvation, or state-sponsored terror. It is, based on what we know of the movie so far, simply a comedy, made by a group of talented actors, writers, and directors, and intended, like most comedies, to make money and earn laughs. The movie would perhaps have been better off with a fictitious dictator and regime; instead, it appears to serve up the latest in a long line of cheap and sometimes racism-tinged jokes…." - Victor Ganata
"But it takes no valor and costs precious little to joke about these things safely oceans away from North Korea’s reach. When a North Korean inmate in a political prison camp or a closely monitored Pyongyang apparatchik pokes fun at Kim Jong Un and the system he represents—that is an act of audacity. It very literally can cost the person’s life, and those of his or her family members. To pretend that punchlines from afar, even in the face of hollow North Korean threats, are righteous acts is nonsense." - Victor Ganata
"What’s more, crowding the North Korea 'story' with anecdotes of nutty behavior and amusing delusions may ironically benefit those in charge in Pyongyang. It serves to buffer and obscure the sheer evil of a regime that enslaves children and sentences entire families to death for crimes of thought, while building ski resorts, dolphinariums, and other luxury escapes for elites with funds that could feed its malnourished people for several years." - Victor Ganata
"How many people would have watched The Interview and concluded that they should do something to help change this odious regime and bring about human rights for North Koreans?" - Victor Ganata
This was a real-life Team America and nothing else. Sony's decision was a financial decision and nothing else. The cinemas that decided not to show the film out of fear were run by utter morons and nothing else. - Mark H
"In Charlie Chaplin’s 1964 autobiography, the star discussed the backlash that he faced from Hollywood and the German and British governments when plans for The Great Dictator’s release were announced. He moved forward with the project despite these concerns, but years later suggested that he regretted that decision: “Had I known of the actual horrors of the German concentration camps, I could not have made The Great Dictator; I could not have made fun of the homicidal insanity of the Nazis.”" - Andrew C (✔)
The movie theater chains were also probably looking at the bottom line as well. I read somewhere that all it would take is about 5% of the audience not showing up during the holidays to totally wreck their profitability, given how much of a cut they have to give studios. - Victor Ganata

Mysterious ice pancakes appear on Scottish river - CNN.com

"Ice pancakes. These strange frozen saucers were found during a recent cold snap near the River Dee -- a salmon-filled waterway that passes by the British Queen's summer residence, Balmoral Castle, before heading eastwards to the coastal city of Aberdeen. River Dee Trust biologist Jamie Urquhart made the discovery and took the photos at Lummels Pool, Birse -- several miles downstream of Balmoral. The trust said it was initially unsure what caused the pancakes, but supects they're caused by a rare phenomenon in which foam freezes in a swirling eddy." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Taipei Zoo’s ‘hero tortoise’ makes TV news in the US - Taipei Times - http://www.taipeitimes.com/News...
"The story of a tortoise at Taipei Zoo that helped another one flip over made headlines on ABC News in the US on Tuesday. A video of the stranded tortoise on its back, being tipped over by another one, attracted 1.51 million hits on YouTube and drew the attention of ABC News after it was posted by Audi Yu on Nov. 25. Posted under the title “See a Hero Tortoise Help a Friend Get Back on Its Feet,” the video shows a tortoise using its head to nudge the other one until it flips onto its feet, to huge applause from a crowd of spectators. Yu said he noticed the tortoises while he was accompanying his daughter on a school field trip to Taipei Zoo and he shot the video to show her that helping others is the key to happiness." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

The Amount of Trash America Produces is Staggering. So Why Don't We Copy Taiwan?
"When it’s garbage day in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan, you won’t see abandoned trash bags on the streets waiting for pickup, as you might in Manhattan. Instead, you’ll find Taiwanese citizens lining up to heave their own bags into the garbage truck each and every night. By turning rubbish collection into a daily civic duty, this island of 23.5 million has been remarkably successful at achieving something that eludes most developing nations: The richer Taiwan gets, the less trash it produces." - rönin from Bookmarklet
"The former minister of Taiwan’s Environmental Protection Administration, Dr. Eugene Chien, who helped create the program during his tenure, says its success proves that if you educate kids, they do the work for you. “If you tell the adults that they must separate the garbage, they get mad with you,” Dr. Chien told a group of journalists at a meeting in November. “But if I teach their son or their daughter, then the parent will say, ‘Why is my child so smart?’ and they will do it.”" - rönin
Do we have the concept of "civic duty" here? - Brian Johns
We used to, at least. - Spidra Webster
The not leaving trash bags outside for pickup makes sense considering how hot & humid Taiwan is year round. When I was living in Taipei they hadn't started the blue bag only restriction yet but I can imagine that not going over well here. - rönin

Ocean Acidification Harming Shellfish | The Scientist Magazine® - http://www.the-scientist.com/...
Ocean Acidification Harming Shellfish | The Scientist Magazine®
"Climate change is bad for commercial oyster and mussel growers. But until recently, researchers weren’t sure exactly how rising CO2 levels and the resultant ocean acidification—reduced pH—harmed the farmed bivalves. This week (December 15), researchers proposed an answer: it’s all about saturation state. In a paper published in Nature Climate Change, scientists from Oregon State University and state agencies reported that the larvae of Pacific oysters and Mediterranean mussels have a hard time forming their calcium carbonate shells as the surrounding seawater’s saturation state falls. Saturation state is a measure of how corrosive the seawater is to the shells that the larvae make as they grow, and as CO2 increases in the atmosphere, saturation state drops. A lower saturation state means more corrosive water. “Biological oceanographers have speculated that early life stages of marine organisms might be particularly sensitive to ocean acidification, but the underlying mechanisms... more... - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
Yep. A very troubling harbinger. :( - Jenny H. from Android
The oysters in this study are imported from Japan not native to the Pacific North West. The average PH of the ocean water they come from is naturally more alkaline "8.5 PH" than the waters off the coast of Oregon "8.1 PH." The larval die off which occurred is actually due to up welling. Oregon's natural oysters indigenous to the area are thriving. The aquaculture farms that have... more... - Eric Logan
