Swine Flu Is Jumping Into More Species Than Ever
"Remember the H1N1 flu that spread across the planet in 2009? It was the same flu strain that was predominant during this winter's flu season. Now it's turned up in sea otters living off the coast of Washington state, and researchers don't know how it got there." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Dallas Photographer Mike Mezeul Captured the Best "Blood Moon" Photo of All | Dallas Observer
"If you didn't stay up late on Monday night to witness the "Blood Moon," fear not. The cosmos have conveniently scheduled three reruns over the next two years. Can't wait six months? Observer freelancer Mike Mezeul II has you covered. He's the guy who shot the time-lapse photo you've probably already seen on your social media feed. (When my mother-in-law posts it on her Facebook feed, describing it as merely "viral" is woefully inadequate.) The Baltimore Sun's photography blog caught up with Mezeul for an explanation of how he did it. Short answer: He stood out in the cold for a really long time." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

March Was 4th Warmest on Record Globally | Climate Central -
March Was 4th Warmest on Record Globally | Climate Central
"March 2014 was the fourth-warmest March on record globally, according to recently released NASA data, making it the 349th month — more than 29 years — in which global temperatures were above the historic average. The amounts that temperatures around the world differed from the historic average. Credit: NOAA The planet’s average March temperature was 57.9°F — 0.7°C (or 1.2°F) above the average temperature from 1951-1980 — behind only the March of 2002, 2010 and 1990, in that order. Data is still coming in that could change the temperature deviation from this March, but likely only a few hundredths of a degree in either direction, said climate scientist Gavin Schmidt, director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, which compiles the temperature data." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

If I had $1,500 to spend on gratuitous tech, I'd probably just buy a decent gaming rig instead of Glass. Augmented reality can wait until version 2.0. I need to kill me some demons at 100 fps now.
I lasted about 20 minutes with Glass before I decided I'm just not the right kind of asshole for that product. $1500 can buy so much more useful stuff. Like a gaming rig. :D - Hookuh Tinypants

My kids middle school has mandated teachers + students who can't prove being vaccinated stay home until next month because of a measles case. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Seriously, a 1400% year-over-year increase is pretty impressive. - Victor Ganata
my county specifically in the oc. I go nowhere those little heathens and their parents are. - Lnorigb
Several of the school districts in my region are doing something similar to Micah's situation. They're also working to change district policies to disallow children without vaccination records from registering in the fall. I'm surprised that was ever allowed to begin with - when I was a kid, you HAD to have a vaccination record before they'd let you register. Shit, even OSU required I submit a vaccination record before I was allowed to register for my undergrad. - Hookuh Tinypants

Farmer Robert Sampson ploughs fields in the way his family has since 1885 | Mail Online -
Farmer Robert Sampson ploughs fields in the way his family has since 1885 | Mail Online
"Eight mighty horses toil in a farmer's field in an image that evokes an idyllic rural Britain at risk of vanishing forever. Robert Sampson is shunning modern machinery and employing old-fashioned horse power on his land in Hampshire. Five generations of his family have used this method to plough the fields since 1885. And the 58-year-old is keen to keep the tradition alive. Every day, he takes his Percherons out to plough his 256 acre plot. The method may take a little longer than using machinery, but he saves on diesel and road tax as his horses are content to munch grass at the end of a day’s labour. He said: ‘I do it because I love it. People think I’m mad … and there are times when I think I am too!’" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
Lake Orta, one of the smallest and least-known of northern Italy's sub-Alpine lakes, is a place for sublime moments. The German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, who visited the lake in May 1882 and believed that the experience changed his life forever, inscribed the date "von Orta an" ("from Orta onwards") as a preface to his masterpiece Thus Spake Zarathustra. Other 19th-century writers enchanted by its quiet beauty include the French novelist Honoré de Balzac, who wrote rapturously of this "grey pearl in a green jewel-box", and Robert Browning. His poem "By the Fireside", which contemplates the beauty of a setting where "Alp meets heaven in snow", describes the lakeside village of Pella as a luminous "speck of white... in the evening-glow". - Ksana
“…so the party arrived on an early May day in the ancient town of Orta, situated on a peninsula that juts out into the lake from the eastern shore. Opposite it, like an emerging pearl, lies the Island of St. Giulio..." - Ksana
"In the month of May 1882, a very young Lou Salomé, a Russian woman with a great charm and intelligence (most outstanding among the extraordinary figures of the "belle époque") spent a few days at Orta; she was accompanied by her mother, Nietzsche and Paul Rée, a mutual friend...." - Ksana

The new pulse of digital music -
The new pulse of digital music
"Besides creating their powerful music, the students have invented a series of interfaces and musical gadgets. The first is the app sensorUDP, which transforms musicians’ smartphones into motion sensors. Available in the Android app store and compatible with iPhones, it allows performers to layer up to eight programmable sounds and modify them by moving their phone. Music student Pieteke MacMahon modified the app to create an iPhone Piano, which she plays on her wrist, thanks to a mount created by engineering classmates. As she moves her hands up, the piano notes go up in pitch. When she drops her hands, the sound gets lower, and a delay effect increases if her palm faces up. “Audiences love how intuitive it is,” says the composition major. “It creates music in a way that really makes sense to people, and it looks pretty cool onstage.”" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
This reminds me of the stuff Interval Research was doing in the late '90s (movement to create sound, sound to create visuals, etc.) - Laura Norvig

Being referred to in a group as "you guys" is so, so irritating to me.
It's possible I have a bad attitude today. - Marie from iPhone
I'm trying to break myself of that habit - maʀtha
one of my faculty told me off in a email for addressing her and male colleagues as "you guys" - Sir Shuping is just sir
all y'all - Greg GuitarBuster
Nah, just "y'all." Reserve "all y'all" for situations in which a group is in trouble: "All y'all better X if you know what's good for you!" ;) - Rachel Walden
I know where you're coming from. Related problem: the word gals seems awkward to me. Similar to dudes in a non-surfing context. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
From my experience, the use of "all y'all" requires a mid-air finger snap. - Marie
I've been making a conscious effort to switch to "folks" for exactly this reason. - Catherine Pellegrino
I've developed a negative reaction to 'folks', probably because of its overuse in political speeches "folks are having a hard time, they're hurting" (of course the speaker isn't REALLY connected to 'folks') - Greg GuitarBuster
Maybe it's because I grew up with a lot of brothers, but I have no problem with "you guys". I don't see it as gendered. "Ladies", on the other hand, raises my hackles as a way to refer to a group of females. - Spidra Webster
I usually refer to a group as "y'all" out of habit. A weird habit to have for a native Californian, really. :) And Spidra, I detest when someone rolls up and refers to a group of women as "ladies". It always feels so disingenuine and almost patronizing. - Hookuh Tinypants
I got your second-person plural pronoun right here, Ladies. - Holly's favorite Anna
I've seen enough instances of people saying "you guys" to all-female groups that I believe it really is gender-neutral for a subset of native speakers - but also try to avoid it myself because of the subset for whom it really really isn't. I think formally I say "you all" if disambiguation is required ("y'all" isn't a word here; "youse" is but isn't natural in my own mouth), and on social media I say "folks" or "tweeps" or use the Māori "hoa mā" (friends) depending on audience. - Deborah Fitchett
Sometimes, I will say "Hi everyone," or "Hi all," when sending an email to a buncha people. - Joe - Systems Analyst
What is wrong with you guys? - Joe - Systems Analyst
Hi all, or You all. - Betsy
People - maʀtha
I am actually quite irritated when someone at work sends an email to everyone in the support dept, and opens it with something like "Hey guys and gal" or "Hey guys (and April)", since I am the only female in the group. I don't like being singled out like that. For me, I'd much prefer "Hey guys" without the additional add-on just for me. I also consider "guys" to be gender neutral, in... more... - April Russo

The skeptics are wrong — the gender pay gap is very very real - Vox -
The skeptics are wrong — the gender pay gap is very very real - Vox
"The commonly cited statistic that American women suffer from a 23 percent wage gap through which they make just 77 cents for every dollar a man earns is much too simplistic. On the other hand, the frequently heard conservative counterargument that we should subject this raw wage gap to a massive list of statistical controls until it nearly vanishes is an enormous oversimplification in the opposite direction. After all, for many purposes gender is itself a standard demographic control to add to studies — and when you control for gender the wage gap disappears entirely! Of course that's completely trivial. The question to ask about the various statistical controls that can be applied to shrink the gender gap is what are they actually telling us. The answer, I think, is that it's telling how the wage gap works." - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet
Neoliberalism, the Revolution in Reverse | Chris Lehmann | The Baffler -
Neoliberalism, the Revolution in Reverse | Chris Lehmann | The Baffler
"The world of neoliberal market consensus that we now inhabit would likely strike many of the movement’s founders as a grotesque parody of their own aims and intentions. But because it is a fable of intellectual overreach, as opposed to narrow economic self-interest, the neoliberal saga also bears an oddly hopeful moral. The seemingly impermeable armature of terrible social and economic thought that has bequeathed to us our present state of ruin is really a flimsy and jury-rigged set of market superstitions, and could readily be discarded for sturdier wares." - Eivind from Bookmarklet
"Bangladeshi workers can either be more safe or starve more rapidly. But according to Epstein, they assuredly aren’t entitled to earn a living wage without the threat of being crushed or burned to death at any given moment. The pertinent market trade-offs simply won’t permit it. Indeed, if you want to know the truth, Epstein claims, “labor agitation was . . . one of the contributing... more... - Eivind
I had a contractor friend give me a rough estimate of what it would cost today to take care of ALL of the major projects/renovations/replacements that I have on my list. I knew it would be totally unrealistic for my budget right now, but it was actually less than I expected. So i guess this is good news?
To replace the roof, soffits, fascia and gutters, ALL of the windows (except the bay window in the kitchen dining nook which was added after initial construction and actually DOES insulate somewhat) would run about $25K. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Adding an exterior stair off of the balcony deck to the back yard adds another $2600. And the last (and lowest priority) improvement would be to add maintenance free siding over the existing redwood, which is the stuff that gave me so much grief when I did last summer's painting project. That would bring the total to $36K. So, hey ol' FF buddies... ol' pals... I'll send you some naked pics for a $5K contribution! For $10K I'll send pics of someone else! For $20K I promise not to send any! ;-P - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Seriously, I was expecting the roof alone to cost $20K. I figured the windows would cost $10K or so, but that was for just the biggest ones. He's figuring in the french doors to the balcony, and all of the smaller windows in the lower level and the bathrooms. So that's a relief, in an odd way. Maybe if I can do it in stages over 10 years or so, it might be manageable. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I remember hearing a financial advisor on WPR telling a prospective home buyer that he should expect to spend about 10% of the purchase price annually for maintenance and needed improvements. My jaw dropped, but now that doesn't seem so extreme. I guess I/we were fortunate in our previous homes, because we never came close to that ratio. On the otherhand, I could do a lot more of the regular maintenance myself, as well as some "special" projects. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
And just to be clear, I'm kidding (KIDDING!) about donations... too many people with real and urgent needs out there. (I would sell the naked pics, however.) - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
We put a lot of money (for us) into the house when we bought it. We couldn't afford to get the yard, kitchen, or master bath done. It'll be a while. :-/ - Yvonne from FFHound!
The windows will give you immediate return on heat/air conditioning. - Janet from FFHound!
Definitely, especially in another winter like we just had! (And are still having...) That would be my highest priority except that the roof will soon reach a point where I'll either have to go with stop gap repairs year after year, or get the whole thing done right and not have to deal with it anymore. (And probably not the next one or two owners after me.) But still, shelling out $300... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Seems exceptionally reasonable what type of roofing will it be and is it a re-shingle or complete tear down to frame? We're in the same boat I do most work but am now paying for major landscaping work. - Steve C
Oh, and a wood stove in the lower level. Which will will really help keep the bedroom areas of the house warmer at night. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I know, it does seem reasonable, Steve. The roof is warranted for 30 years, and the shingles will be the "architectural style." He'll do a complete tear down and lay down the ice water barrier around the perimeter and the "valleys"... I was considering a metal roof, which carries a 50 year warranty, but I won't be around for most of that and I'm not sure the eventual buyer would view it... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Wow in that case that is a great deal! Roof alone down to tear down and replace is at least $15K - Steve C
The guy who is providing the estimate is trying to do a lot of projects this spring, summer and fall so that he can finish purchasing a piece of property up nort' and build himself a small cabin to serve as his abode in retirement. As such he's willing to offer better than normal pricing so he can get the amount of work he wants. He knows his stuff, but I do have to watch him a bit on... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Commenting on that "10% for maintenance..." Wow. If that was true around here, we'd move into a rental, since that would be considerably more than our total annual spending on *everything.* That is, house maintenance, food, utilities, clothing, entertainment...everything. - Walt Crawford
I'm glad I'm not the only one who balked at that number, Walt. In the three houses that I've previously owned, I'd say we spent 10% - 15% of the mortgage *payment* each month (on average). Many months it was much less, but then an occasional big item would need repair or replacement. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android

Zuckerberg Vows Facebook Will Shoot Down Google Drones : The New Yorker
"MENLO PARK, CA (The Borowitz Report)—One day after Google outbid Facebook for a manufacturer of solar-powered drones, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg served warning that his company was prepared to blow Google’s drones out of the skies. At a presentation for Facebook employees at the company’s headquarters in Menlo Park, Zuckerberg announced plans to build a $24 billion Facebook laser shield, a global network of satellites capable of identifying and incinerating Google drones in midair. Zuckerberg delighted his audience with a brief animated demonstration showing a Facebook satellite locking in on a Google drone and obliterating it with a green laser. “Unfriended, bitch,” said Zuckerberg, to a roaring ovation from his employees." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
" Within an hour, Google responded with a stern warning of is own, vowing, “Any act of aggression against Google drones will not stand.” To that end, the company announced that it was prepared to shoot down Facebook’s laser satellites with a long-range super cannon called Google Gun. " - Jessie
I put my money on Google. Zuckerberg will extract as much private information from participants as he can, but he'll end up ceding that actual destructive weapons battle to Google, or maybe Jeff Bezos. He's equally ruthless and I'm pretty sure he could take the other two in a fist fight. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I think Google may have a leg up in the robot wars. - Ken Morley

I am the one who rocks: Bryan Cranston helps teen land a prom date - -
"If terrifying chemistry-teacher-turned-meth-maker Walter White of "Breaking Bad" asks you to do something, you'd better give him the answer he wants. High-school student Stefan Montana of Los Gatos, Calif., nabbed actor Bryan Cranston, who played White, after seeing him in the Broadway show "All the Way" last Thursday, and enlisted him in a little project. "Maddie, if you don't go to the prom with Stefan, then maybe your best course of action would be to tread lightly," Cranston, in Walter White character, obligingly said into a camera. A nervous Montana followed up the celebrity cautionary remark by asking, "Maddie, will you go to prom with me?"" - Steve C from Bookmarklet
"The New York Daily News reported that Montana was in New York visiting colleges and got the idea for the question while watching Cranston's play. "(Cranston) really is the nicest guy in the world," Montana told the Daily News. "It really is true. He's not really a celebrity, he's a dude. He didn't have to help me out but it was pretty amazing."" - Steve C
He's awesome - Shevonne
Many years ago, Jeff Daniels was having dinner with friends at the Common Grill in Chelsea (Michigan; his home town). He noticed two girls who were treating themselves to a nice dinner before going date-less to the prom. He told them that, after he finished doing whatever he was doing with his friends, he would drop by the prom and be their date. And he did. And he was. - Betsy
That's very cool Betsy - Steve C

RT @RumsfeldOffice: That I & most Americans have no idea whether our taxes are accurate tells us something. My annual letter to the #IRS:
It looks like Donald Rumsfeld is really riding this radical skeptical train down to the end-of-the-line, doesn't it? "I have no idea whether our taxes are accurate because true knowledge is impossible." - Victor Ganata

So Bundy and his anti-government allies were basically going to use women and children as human shields. Bravo.
That guy is straight up crazy. ""It was a tactical plot that I was trying to get them to use," Mack said in comments flagged by The Raw Story. "If they're going to start killing people, I'm sorry, but to show the world how ruthless these people are, women needed to be the first ones shot." "I'm sorry, that sounds horrible," he continued. "I would have put my own wife or daughters there,... more... - Andrew C (✔)
IIRC, in cowboy movies it's always the cowards and bad guys who use women and children as shields. Nice of him to label himself clearly to the world so we don't have to guess. - Betsy

I think because of my preoccupation with fantasy worlds, when I first learned about the history of the Jesuits at my Jesuit-run high school, I imagined that St. Ignatius had founded an actual order of paladins.
I think it's mainly because of Ignatius's military training that I developed a sense that the Jesuits were kind of a quasimilitary arm of the Roman Catholic Church. - Victor Ganata
The head of the Jesuit order is called the Superior General. - Victor Ganata
I realize that I probably misinterpreted what "Church Militant" actually means. (More so than "crusader", it seems to be the Christian equivalent of "mujahid" which also seems to be similarly frequently misinterpreted.) - Victor Ganata
The founding document does make the quasimilitary nature of the Society of Jesus evident, though: "Whoever desires to serve as a soldier of God beneath the banner of the Cross in our Society, which we desire to be designated by the Name of Jesus, and to serve the Lord alone and the Church, his spouse, under the Roman Pontiff, the Vicar of Christ on earth, should, after a solemn vow of... more... - Victor Ganata
My impression of Spanish history was very hazy when I was 11-13. It's like they probably explained it in class at some point but I missed it? and then I got mixed up about the expulsion of the Jews in 1492 and the expulsion of the Jesuits in 1767 and I wasn't sure who was which and which was who and was there more than one expulsion and what are jesuits anyway and are they related to... more... - Betsy
(And that's what goes through my mind any time anyone mentions Jesuits.) - Betsy
Yeah, I'm not really sure what faction exactly shot Ignatius with a cannonball, or even what army Ignatius was serving with at the time. #TooManyWars - Victor Ganata
