“People in the African continent are more regarded as an abstract statistic than a patient in the U.S. or Europe,” Mr. Carilho told Mic. “How many individual stories do we know about any African patients? None. They are treated as an indistinguishable crowd.” - MoTO: Team Marina
""...experts agree that Mr. Duncan was given “the best care and treatment available.” There is no evidence, Mr. Hutchinson says, that Mr. Duncan did not receive the experimental medication with which some of the white victims of the disease were treated because of his race. ZMapp, the treatment, Mr. Hutchinson writes, is still an experimental drug with a very limited supply. - MoTO: Team Marina

Why Is There Something Rather Than Nothing? - http://ieet.org/index...
Why Is There Something Rather Than Nothing?
"Well, why not? Why expect nothing rather than something? No experiment could support the hypothesis ‘There is nothing’ because any observation obviously implies the existence of an observer. Is there any a priori support for ‘There is nothing’? One might respond with a methodological principle that propels the empty world to the top of the agenda. For instance, many feel that whoever asserts the existence of something has the burden of proof. If an astronomer says there is water at the south pole of the Moon, then it is up to him to provide data in support of the lunar water. If we were not required to have evidence to back our existential claims, then a theorist who fully explained the phenomena with one set of things could gratuitously add an extra entity, say, a pebble outside our light cone. We recoil from such add-ons. To prevent the intrusion of superfluous entities, one might demand that metaphysicians start with the empty world and admit only those entities that have... more... - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

[1410.5401] Neural Turing Machines - http://arxiv.org/abs/1410.5401
"We extend the capabilities of neural networks by coupling them to external memory resources, which they can interact with by attentional processes. The combined system is analogous to a Turing Machine or Von Neumann architecture but is differentiable end-to-end, allowing it to be efficiently trained with gradient descent. Preliminary results demonstrate that Neural Turing Machines can infer simple algorithms such as copying, sorting, and associative recall from input and output examples." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

These self-cooling walls could replace air conditioning - http://www.citymetric.com/horizon...
These self-cooling walls could replace air conditioning
"To break this depressing cycle, architects from the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia in Barcelona are developing walls that cool themselves without the need for electricity. The technology uses a substance called "hydrogel", which absorbs water and can swell to up to 400 times its original size. When the air around the hydrogel heats up, the water evaporates, which cools the air around the gel by around 5° Celcius. The mechanism’s not dissimilar to the way our body cools itself down by evaporating water from the skin’s surface in the form of sweat.   To create a self-cooling wall, bubbles of the gel are inserted between two ceramic layers." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

A Family Rejects the Industrial Model and Rebuilds Their Farm – The Plate: Maryn McKenna
"The current Will Harris expected to carry on that legacy, and for many years, he did. He went to the University of Georgia, earned an agricultural-science degree, returned to the farm, and put into practice everything he had learned. That meant routine antibiotics, hormone implants and grain feeding for the cattle, and routine fertilizers and pesticides and herbicides for the fields they sometimes browsed on. By his 40s, Will Harris was running two profitable, perfect monocultures—one of meat and the other of grass—and doing everything his education and family history told him he should. And then he stopped, and thought, and changed his mind." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
"On its 3,000 acres, a mix of owned and leased, he and his 110 employees run 10 different species: cattle, pigs, sheep, goats and rabbits; and chickens, turkeys, geese, ducks and guinea hens. Everything is raised out on the restored pastures, which now support a complex mix of grasses. The animals move through the fields in a carefully plotted rotation, each eating their favorite... more... - Todd Hoff

BBC News - The anarchic experimental schools of the 1970s
"Catterall recalls 40 years ago gathering in the centre of Liverpool with a group of children from the free school, all holding a tomato. When you see him, lob it, the teacher told them. The venerable man they were waiting for appeared and the children duly let fly. But the target was not just anyone. It was Edward Heath, the British prime minister. The children have been ordered by their teacher to bombard - albeit with tomatoes - the elected leader of the country. It's hard to imagine a time when teachers would take schoolchildren on a trip to heckle the prime minister - let alone throw things at him. Breen laughs at the absurdity. "It was just another adventure for me. It was a day out. It's not till I got older that I realised what it was about."" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Baby boomers ruined America: Why blaming millennials is misguided — and annoying - Salon.com
"Baby boomers came of age in an era of unprecedented prosperity. They were raised by parents who had survived poverty, war and the true sacrifice of a generation burdened with great moral struggles. As a whole, they experienced economic and physical security. Baby boomers received, by today’s standards, inexpensive and widely available education, preparing them for a thriving and open job market. Success at the beginning created a strong foundation for financial and personal success on a level the world had never known. This led to America’s greatest asset: the middle class. So what did they do with all their good fortune? From the time the baby boomers took over, the United States has experienced an economic environment plagued with unfounded asset and real-estate bubbles and collapses. The bubbles were caused by blind greed on the part of investors, and a blind eye on the part of regulators. The baby boomers forced the financial and banking system out of relative security to high-risk systems." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
