Thanks Todd, I'm fairly happy with it. The original plan was to do a clear finish, but it just didn't look right. I hated to paint over it. - Ken Morley

Impression of the new iPad air is favorable so far. It's much lighter so it's easier to hold when reading. It's mich more responsive than my iPad 2. The lte is great. And the ac wifi is a dream. The screen is less reflective which makes a big difference. The narrow bezels make it harder to hold when reading.
But damn it was expensive. - Todd Hoff
Get a good case. I found out the hard way that the screen is very fragile. - Ken Morley

Mosaics Revealed at Ancient Greek City of Zeugma in Turkey | Greek Reporter Europe - http://eu.greekreporter.com/2014...
Mosaics Revealed at Ancient Greek City of Zeugma in Turkey | Greek Reporter Europe
Show all
"Archaeologists discovered three unique mosaics at the Ancient Greek city of Zeugma, in south Turkey, near the borders of Syria. The ancient city of Zeugma was originally founded as a Greek settlement by Seleucus I Nicator, one of the generals of Alexander the Great, in 300 BC. The population of the city at its peak was approximately 80,000 inhabitants." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
They're beautiful. (I wonder why a sea goddess has wings attached to her forehead? (Oceanus' lobster claws make total sense, of course.)) - Eivind
Symmetry? The wings and the claws parallel each other. And as they spring forth from the head, perhaps it's a sign of divinity? - Todd Hoff
Just seems like a deviation from the aquatic theme of her hubby/brother's protrusions and her sea serpent necklace. - Eivind

How a $47 Shrimp Treadmill Became a $3-Million Political Plaything - http://chronicle.com/blogs...
How a $47 Shrimp Treadmill Became a $3-Million Political Plaything
"It is disingenuous for the Republican-controlled House Committee on Science, Space and Technology to promote the idea that scientists are wasting millions of taxpayer dollars to run shrimp on treadmills based on a 30-second video clip. Given that every teaspoon of seawater can contain millions of bacteria, it does not take a mental giant to understand that the health of marine organisms and the safety of the seafood we eat are closely related." - Ken Morley from Bookmarklet
Still, this led me to look up shrimp on treadmills on YT and I found one set to Eye of the Tiger: https://www.youtube.com/watch... - Andrew C (✔)

I scored 0 out of 40 and I have no red bars at all. *tap* *tap* Is this thing working? - bentley
You'd think I'd be the queen of selfies but I've grown out of that. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
I scored 20, which is much lower than I assumed. I thought it would be about 38. It seems to be hard to measure narcissism against societal norms. I think there's a very thin line between narcissism and being comfortable with yourself & your abilities. - Anika
You're so vain you probably think this quiz is about you... - Steve C Team Marina
The reason I took the quiz was I was listening to a podcast with Marc Maron and Dr Drew and they mentioned people with codependency usually scored a 40 (so like the highest score). So on the plus side, I'm not codependent but I'm apparently vain. :P I like to think I'm happy with what I see in the mirror for the most part. :) - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
6 and self-sufficient, with a minor in vanity :) - Ken Morley
I scored 2 out of 40. - John (bird whisperer)
2 out of 40 as well, though I'm not sure I agree with how they have some of those categorized. Being self-effacing isn't the opposite of narcissism, and there are a lot of instances where simply being comfortable with yourself seem conflated. - Jennifer Dittrich

people forget how many probes and landers we sent to the moon before ever sending humans there. - Big Joe Silence
I'm still astonished that so much was achieved in such a short time frame. - Ken Morley
well, IIRC, space exploration was considered both patriotic and militarily advantageous back then. now the only thing the ppl controlling the purse strings seem to care about is how much money can be diverted into their own pockets and the pockets of their friends. worse, there seems to be this notion, even in the scientific community, that probes are sufficient stand-ins for immediate human presence and first-hand experience. - Big Joe Silence

Pope Francis declares evolution and Big Bang theory are right and God isn't 'a magician with a magic wand' - The Independent http://www.independent.co.uk/news...
While I realize that there are lot of Christian sects that are indeed very anti-science, the stance of the Roman Catholic Church is the reason why that argument has always felt like a strawman to me. And Pope Francis isn't the first pope to state this. - Victor Ganata
And the Big Bang theory was first posited by an astronomer and physicist who was also a Jesuit priest. - Victor Ganata
He has his own astrophysicist. http://archive.wired.com/wired... - Ken Morley
It seems to me like he describes an ascent of man type directed evolution. Divine artificial selection? May just be that the pope doesn't really understand the mechanisms of evolution, poor choice of words, or bad translation, of course. But it's not really compatible with the science, is it, if man is believed to be the inevitable end product, the pinnacle, of evolution? I agree it's... more... - Eivind
It's really just a version of the strong anthropic principle, though. The strong anthropic principle and the fine tuning problem make some scientists unhappy precisely because they give intelligent design an opening but they're perfectly compatible with existing evidence. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
It's also a version of creationism :) - Eivind from Android
Sure, but it's a version of creationism that isn't at odds with current observations. - Victor Ganata
“Evolution in nature is not inconsistent with the notion of creation, because evolution requires the creation of beings that evolve.” - Eivind from Android
Well, one way to summarize the strong anthropic principle is that the initial conditions of our universe inevitably lead to the evolution of intelligent life—the physical constants that define our universe make it inevitable that matter will develop into living organisms and which then inevitably evolve into sophonts. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Where, exactly, can intelligent life be found, though? - Uli
Friendfeed. - bentley
LOL, well, yeah, then we end up having to finely parse words like "intelligence", "life", "matter", "existence". - Victor Ganata
I view his remarks as political. One more effort to dislodge his American Bishops from their Republican coalition with evangelicals... - WarLord
Here's what it really is: The tooth and nail adherence to "Creation Science" was making the church looking fucking dumb. Lots of dumb things were trying to be done in the name of the church and ultimately that is turning people off. This is a bridge to sideline those people but still have an explainable way to have Genisis. - Johnny from iPhone
The thing is, the Roman Catholic Church's stance on evolution has been essentially unchanged for the last 64 years. It was really only Benedict who was trying to change things. And it was a Jesuit priest who came up with the Big Bang Theory in the first place. - Victor Ganata
But given the rise/size of other strains of Christianity who are big on Creation Science, this is a pretty clear marker to step away from them. - Johnny from iPhone
Oh, for sure. Francis definitely wants to distance himself from Benedict. But it's more like Francis is turning the wheel back to the direction it was in the first place, rather than setting off in an entirely new direction. - Victor Ganata
Pope Declares There is No Conflict Between Big Bang, Evolution and The Catholic Faith... In 1951 - uCatholic http://www.ucatholic.com/blog... - Victor Ganata
The God of the gaps approach is probably wise, but maybe he should use the Norwegian church as an case study to see what /can/ happen to a church if it is too eager to adjust its dogma according to the demands of the secular world. - Eivind
The Roman Catholic Church has frequently adjusted itself to the secular world and has employed the god-of-the-gaps argument often. I'm mainly just objecting to the media hype that somehow Pope Francis is being revolutionary. The episode with Galileo is mostly a half-millenium old strawman that happened for political reasons rather than true anti-science sentiment. Mendel, Bacon, Lemaitre are not anomalous. The Vatican is not as bound to literal interpretations of Scripture as many other Christian sects. - Victor Ganata
Yeah, this really isn't radical in any way. It looks even less revolutionary if you consider the context: at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences while dedicating a bust of Pope Benedict. Francis may be pushing back against intelligent design arguments, but if so, he's pushing very gently. And it's not likely that his audience in this case would put much stock in intelligent design anyway. - John (bird whisperer)
I do think he is arguing for intelligent design, just not in the stronger sense of an actively interventionalist god. It resembles the Deist argument, really. At most, he is repudiating Creationism based on the literal interpretation of scripture, but that has been the long-standing position of the Roman Catholic Church anyway. - Victor Ganata
The media is pushing the "great new pope" angle pretty hard, and it seems to work pretty well for them :) - Eivind from Android
