Climate Change Has Coffee Growers In Haiti Seeking Higher Ground

This technology will replace satellites, fiber, and copper, and fundamentally change the broadband industry. Call it Skynet" - http://www.lightreading.com/iot...

It won't replace fiber in cities, I suppose. And the picture is lacking the constellation of microwave 'platters' a MW link would require. - 9000

Barbie in form of the goddess Kali, presented at the exhibition 'Barbie: The Plastic Religion' in Buenos Aires, has angered (some) Hindus.
"Hindus welcome the art world to immerse in Hinduism but taking it seriously and respectfully and not for refashioning Hinduism concepts and symbols for personal agendas. Barbie-fication of Kali is simply improper, wrong and out of place", said Rajan Zed, a notable interfaith leader. - centralasian from Bookmarklet
"The depiction of Barbie and Ken as the Virgin Mary and a crucified Jesus Christ and other saints also drew sharp comments". - centralasian

There are people who survived Ebola, right? Can we turn their antibodies (or whatever it's called) into a vaccine? #realquestion
Yes, "passive vaccine". - miki from Flucso
At least one of the nurses in Dallas has received a transfusion from a survivor: http://www.jconline.com/story... - MoTO: Team Marina
From what I understand, a vaccine is still a ways away. - MoTO: Team Marina

I think a number of Ebola patients have been treated that way. - John (bird whisperer)
The blood of these survivors, either thru transfusion or research, just may wind up saving thousands. That would be beautiful. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
^That's what I'm saying! :) - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
It's tricky because while antibodies have some protective effect against viruses, the part of the immune system that usually takes care viruses is cell-mediated immunity, and that's not really transfusable. I think it's still unclear just how protective anti-Ebola antibodies are. - Victor Ganata
I think I seriously didn't understand how immunity against viruses worked. Thanks, Victor! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

Philosophy Monkey: Steven Pinker - Linguistics as a Window to Understand the Brain
"One of the things I first enjoyed when I was introduced to philosophy was its recursive nature: we could use thought to investigate the nature, the rules, the structure and the limits of thought itself (and what that could tell us about the human mind). For a very similar reason I have a certain appreciation and fondness for linguistics. Most of our communication takes place through language, and linguists are hard at work trying to understand what they can about human cognition, nature and culture, by paying close attention to the way in which we use language." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"In the following lecture, Steven Pinker provides a fascinating introduction to questions such as how syntax (the study of linguistic structure), phonology (the study of sound), semantics (the study of meaning) and pragmatics (the study of the social and cultural role and context of language), all help us to understand how language works. He also provides a lesson on the nature of the... more... - Maitani

I don't know that much about Mexican food, but it occurred to me today to cook my leftover chorizo into the black beans (from a can) that I was cooking with a little diced onion. Worked out great, so then this evening I made a sofrito (sliced onions, diced garlic, and diced sweet pepper) to go with the leftovers of that.
I've started looking at "mothership" cooking. A large base ingredient that purposefully triggers leftovers. - Johnny
I love that kind of cooking. I think 'roasted chicken' is probably my favorite, but that's likely because I know the most recipes to take advantage of the whole chicken. - Jennifer Dittrich
I like Johnny's term for it: "mothership cooking." Ha! - Corinne L

Happy anniversary :-) - Marina's Godmother :-) from Android
Why is it called that? - Joe
Because it's the term used for the return of the date on which something significant happened. Like a birthday. Which, technically, is also an anniversary. Guess it has something to do with "anno", the year. :-P Also, thanks, Helen! - Uli from Android

Black Keys drummer: U2 release 'devalued their music' - CNN.com
"Carney also defended the Keys' choice not to put their last two albums on Spotify. Artists aren't being fairly compensated, he said. (Cracker's David Lowery has made the same point about Pandora.) "My whole thing about music is: If somebody's making money then the artist should be getting a fair cut of it," Carney said. Presumably referring to Spotify co-founder Sean Parker, he added, "The owner of Spotify is worth something like 3 billion dollars ... he's richer than Paul McCartney and he's 30 and he's never written a song."" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Myth-conceptions: How myths about the brain are hampering teaching -- ScienceDaily
"Myths about the brain are common among teachers worldwide and are hampering teaching, according to new research. The report highlights several areas where new findings from neuroscience are becoming misinterpreted by education, including brain-related ideas regarding early educational investment, adolescent brain development and learning disorders such as dyslexia and ADHD." - Maitani from Bookmarklet

Shannon - GlassMistress
My mom, though she'd never admit it, gets a little controlling. Some of it is just her nature and some of it is living alone and being used to having things her way. Here are the rules so far:
I am not to sit on the bed, it will break down the edge. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I am not to flush the toilet at night, it will disturb the downstairs neighbors, - Shannon - GlassMistress
I am not to use the wash cloths in the bathroom to wash my face (she gave me a ratty one for make up removal) - Shannon - GlassMistress
I am not to touch the wall. The bed I'm sleeping in is against the wall. I should try not to touch the wall lest it get dirty. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I'm not to make the dog bark. If I walk through a door the dog barks. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I am not to spray hairspray in the bathroom ... Must go out on the porch. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I m not to put the box of breakfast leftovers (two slices of bacon in a small styrofoam box) in the back of the car. (First argument accomplished on this one when lightly said "it'll be ok! it's just bacon! nothing will spill) - Shannon - GlassMistress
*blink* *blink* - bentley
If that were my Mum, I'd be tempted to do a massive, stinky poop in the toilet in the middle of the night and leave it for her to discover in the morning. - Melly - #TeamMarina
the sitting on the edge of the bed thing was in the documentation when I bought my new mattress a few years ago. So I can accept that. (also, yes, I read the documentation for my mattress. :p) - ellbeecee
Isn't this the plot of odd couple? - Todd Hoff
ellbeecee ... I get it,I do, but I am probably the only person that will sleep in that bed and only once every two years..... - Shannon - GlassMistress
The wash cloth thing I get ... And do the same at home. I probably wouldn't enforce it on a guest though. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Dear Lord! Mom needs to adjust her priorities. I too am controlling, enough to get myself a hotel room! - Janet from FFHound!
Dude. You really put up with a lot with your mom. Beyond the no-brainer 'no smoking in the house', I can't even think of a time someone gave me rules as a houseguest. - Anika from Android
Don't pet the dog at the table. The table is the only place to sit b/c I'm not to sit on the antique sofa in the living area (or the side of the bed). Also, mom is currently petting the dog. At. The. Table. - Shannon - GlassMistress

Some Fear Ebola Outbreak Could Make Nation Turn to Science
"NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—There is a deep-seated fear among some Americans that an Ebola outbreak could make the country turn to science. In interviews conducted across the nation, leading anti-science activists expressed their concern that the American people, wracked with anxiety over the possible spread of the virus, might desperately look to science to save the day. “It’s a very human reaction,” said Harland Dorrinson, a prominent anti-science activist from Springfield, Missouri. “If you put them under enough stress, perfectly rational people will panic and start believing in science.”" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Additionally, he worries about a “slippery slope” situation, “in which a belief in science leads to a belief in math, which in turn fosters a dangerous dependence on facts.” At the end of the day, though, Dorrinson hopes that such a doomsday scenario will not come to pass. “Time and time again through history, Americans have been exposed to science and refused to accept it,” he said. “I pray that this time will be no different.”" - Jessie
