ryan bruxvoort constructs affinity house as a shelter for sparrows
"in his pursuit to create a suitable house for sparrows, ryan bruxvoort worked through multiple iterations in an effort to reach a final product called ‘affinity’. early on in the project bruxvoort set forth the following statement, which helped guide him through his design process from start to finish: ‘my goal is to create a shelter that compliments its environment while at the same time attracting sparrows to inhabit it. ultimately I wish for this to culminate into a form that shows empathy for the sparrow, in a serene, carefully crafted manner. this led to the development of a delicate, almost fragile look that has been constructed in a manner that affords tremendous structural integrity. this light yet resilient quality of the house is to be reflective of the sparrow itself.’" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Question for Twitter users - how do you feel about being retweeted? Like, Don't LIke or Don't Care?
Don't care. - Rochelle
Thanks Rochelle. I am the same way and have a friend that thinks its way important. I don't see the big deal. That's just me though and thought I'd see what others thought. - Paulette
I like it...but I don't live for it like some do. - Just another Bubba
If you're using Twitter for business, then I can see it being important - Shevonne
Yeah, I can see that would be important Shevonne! - Paulette
I don't care. - Akiva
dont care - Peter Dawson
Like. Doesn't happen much, though. - Alex Scrivener from iPhone
okwhy would any1 really care about being retwitted ? - Peter Dawson
@Peter retweets show that people are listening to what you say, and they think it's important enough to share. - Just another Bubba
Thanks Bubba! Yes Peter - its so that your tweets get seen by more people. Sort of like FOAF here. - Paulette
no the person who retweet cares enough to share,, but why would that concern me ?? does number of retweets indicates an 'ego ' measure ? remember in the blog days, it was all about link love and comments etc etc.. ego manic type thinking ? - Peter Dawson
Care deeply! :-) - Donna Lynne Brown
@Peter it's the same thing. Currency in the blog world is comments and mentions, in the Twitter world it's really retweets, not followers. - Just another Bubba
If you don't like to be retweeted, why even bother to be on Twitter? If you just use it to communicate with a few people, you're better off with email or Facebook. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
I don't think anyone is saying the don't like it. They don't care which is different. - Paulette
Weren't the options like, don't like, don't care? - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
I don't care, personally. I mean, it rarely ever happens to me, and I don't hang out much on Twitter, anyway. - #cryptic
I don't care. - Trish R
If someone digs what I have to say enough to RT it I like it. As long as credit is given anyway. - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce
If I say something stupid on Twitter, I wouldn't like for it to be retweeted! LOL - Paulette
Like it if somebody likesa post and RTs but lack won't stop my posting - WarLord
I would love to be retweeted; it would show me that someone values my input. - MiniMage
Don't care unless it's an issue I think deserves attention. This would also include "issues" that might make me money. Of course, those types of tweets are quite infrequent. - Rahsheen
I've seen all kinds of tweets retweeted and sometimes I wonder why. Some are just personal stuff, that would not constitute a retweet but it does. If I am having a glass of wine and a bubble bath and tweet it, I wouldn't expect or want it to be RT'd but I've seen some of those. Just weird if you ask me. I think some people go overboard with it. - Paulette
Blast from the past! - Paulette from iPhone
For me retweet is a validation of my post As I retweet MOSTLY like and agree but some is more of a bookmark - WarLord
Me too .don't care - taluisland

Maybe I'm overly pessimistic, but any solution to antibiotic resistance is likely to be temporary, because "life—uh—finds a way."
Especially once it gets put into soap, cleaners, surfaces and every other damn thing. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
I blame the frogs. - Steve C, Team Marina
That said, it's probably going to be a while before we start getting teixobactin-resistant bacteria because from what I can tell from the molecular structure, it's unlikely it will get absorbed intact through the GI tract, meaning that it must be administered intravenously, so that will probably limit how often it will be administered. - Victor Ganata
The way they discovered it is probably the bigger breakthrough: they can now grow previously unculturable bacteria and they can even more rapidly screen bioactive molecules for desired activity. - Victor Ganata
As an aside, teixobactin is also only active against Gram-positive bacteria—while it will undoubtedly be deployed for methicillin-resistant and vancomycin-resistant Staph, the greater scourge (at least in terms of ICU mortality, anecdotally speaking) are Gram-negative bacteria, which we still haven't discovered any new antibiotics for since the '90s. - Victor Ganata
We're life too. - Todd Hoff
Sure, but life is an ongoing arms race as far as multicellular organisms versus pathogenic bacteria is concerned. There is no magic bullet. There is no ultimate cure. - Victor Ganata
We're life, too, but bacteria don't have an anti-science GOP holding them back... - Spidra Webster
The anti-science sentiment in the U.S. definitely doesn't help, but from what I've been told, the biggest reason big pharma hasn't been researching new antibiotics is because antibiotics aren't profitable, even though big ag abuses massive quantities of broad spectrum antibiotics. #capitalismFTW - Victor Ganata
Well, maybe Big Ag should chip in, then. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
You would think big ag would, but since they just feed livestock antibiotics willy-nilly, they tend to use the cheaper off-patent stuff. Plus, inserting IV lines into livestock to administer newly-patented brand name antibiotics is cost prohibitive :) - Victor Ganata

Running Activity 4.04 mi - RunKeeper
Well, I didn't run the Chicago Marathon and I know have plantar fasciitis in both feet, but I met my annual mileage goal (600 miles) 6 weeks early, ran more miles than any year since my late 20s and dropped about 10lbs. So I've got that going for me. Which is nice. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet

Don't Get Used To Mobile Apps — Their Days Are Very Obviously Numbered http://www.businessinsider.com/the-future-of-mobile-apps-2014-10
When a linkbait site post says "very clearly" and "obviously" and "no doubt," you can anticipate a lot of doubt and enormous ambiguity on the topic. Heck, you can do that without even falling for the linkbait. (I have no horse in this race, since I have zero mobile apps downloaded to my nonexistent smartphone and/or "phablet.") - Walt Crawford
Funnily enough, I was kind of thinking that about Business Insider... - Zamms
Business Insider is pretty much the bottom feeder of tech biz "journalism." - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Ok, so the rhetoric and the venue may not be so hot, but the idea in the story was something I hadn't considered. As a UX person, I try to keep abreast of ever shifting trends in design. This other piece turned up in my feed a short time later and does a better job of talking about the same limitations of the app model for interaction: http://blog.intercom.io/the-end... - Stephen Francoeur
Walt, if you don't use apps and don't care about them, perhaps you are not the target audience for this piece , regardless of its quality or validity. - laura x from iPhone
Laura: I respectfully disagree. The piece was typical wild-ass generalization of the "because X is superior, therefore Y will disappear" nature. Will mobile apps decline in importance? Probably--but that wouldn't be a BusInsider story. Stephen's later link was a whole lot better. I guess I just get tired of the linkbait approach used by BusInsider, BuzzFeed, HuffPost, a bunch of other... more... - Walt Crawford

I have some pork shoulder, cut in nice big stew chunks. I also have a bottle of hard cider. And red onion & carrots. What kind of greens would you throw in that pot? Anything else?
Salt, garlic - probably as whole peeled cloves, cumin? Also, I'd use at least one umami "cheat", whether that's fish sauce or anchovies or miso paste. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
I dunno much about stewing with greens, so my instinct would be to cook em separately. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
I would use spinach or mustard greens. I like stewing with mustard greens cut into strips, the best. I sauteed or roast them first. - Anika
Potatoes! :") - Jenny H. from Android
I would love potatoes in there, but I'll be serving it with rice or noodles, that's enough carbs. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I do have fish sauce. I have spinach, but there's a few dollars to pick up something different. Mustards sound good, I really like them with pork. Should pick up a piece of garlic too, don't have any fresh in the house. Plan to season with my house mix, which is black & red pepper, garlic powder, paprika, celery seed. Fish sauce is salty, prolly won't need to add much salt. Also a lil prepared mustard, I'm out of mustard powder. Maybe a pinch of ginger... - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Another option would be to mix in fresh greens just before you serve. They'll preserve their flavor and texture and make a nice contrast with the stew. Chopped mustard, kale or bok choy. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Yes, thin greens would get thrown on top near the end of cooking, to wilt & soak up flavor but not stewed into strings :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Bok choy is kind of my go to green, I buy/cook it more than any other. It's possible I go with that again :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I'm making this stove top, thought about the slow cooker but nah, not this time. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

The (early) Beatles were a pop band that had their own branded talc powder and were dismissed as long haired pretty boys with rubbish music. Today's music may actually be rubbish but I always have in the back of my mind that when my dad was young, my grandmother said the same thing then with the same confidence as I do now.
MargoMayfairTalcOM209b.jpg
MargoMayfairTalcOM209c.jpg
Also, fun fact. My dad is probably one of the only people who has seen both The Beatles and The Wiggles play in the same venue :) - Johnny
Some will... and for some it will be transformative and nudge them towards other creative pursuits. There is enough bullshit in this world so I'm trying hard to not personally crap on any art or creative pursuit that is designed to make people happy. Also, even blatant dumb commercial pop music when done extremely well has some good qualities. - Johnny from iPhone
They didn't have AutoTune then. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
True, but the Beatles were pioneers of experimental effects on the music. John Lennon often used double tracking and echo effects because he disliked the sound of his voice. - Johnny
Also, given their love of using the studio to the full limits (See: Revolver, Rubber Soul and Magical Mystery Tour) the assumption that the Beatles wouldn't have utilised at least some part of the technology if it was available is weak. - Johnny
The issue is not that the Beatles would have used AutoTune if it existed then, but that if AutoTune existed then the Beatles would have been "just another band." Effects are one thing and can be creative, but the cumulative impact of AutoTune is that within their respective genres (but especially pop) everybody sounds the same. Equally awful. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
That assumes that the Beatles early skyrocketing success was due purely to their musical talents and not their marketability as 4 good/reasonably looking young boys with rebellious haircuts that pissed off your parents. There were plenty of better talented artists around at the time that never broke it because they wouldn't have worked on a can of Talc. - Johnny
Case In Point:The Beatles at Shea Stadium. They could have unplugged their instruments because the noise from the screaming fans drowned out the actual music. Most of the audio on the film recording is either redubbed or taken from other concerts. - Johnny

"Apple got more details right on their watch than the vast majority of Swiss and Asian brands do with similarly priced watches, and those details add up to a really impressive piece of design." - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet
This: "... The Apple Watch is absolutely the best smart watch on the planet. That much I'm sure of. But are we sure that wearable technology is something we really want? In the same way those who publicly wore blue-tooth headsets five years ago and those who wore Google Glass one year ago, will smart watches ever become a thing that people genuinely want? If anyone can make it happen, it's Apple. It's going to take a lot of time, and a lot of test cases when this thing launches next year ..." - WarLord
I think the secret sauce here isn't the watch itself, but the (as yet unproven) ability of the watch to reduce friction in things like payments and IoT integration. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)

"[...] what’s missing amidst the Apple Watch’s litany of features is any sense of the restraint that has guided Apple’s products in the past. There’s no suggestion that Apple has cracked what these weird watch things are really all about. The watch seemed like a perfect opportunity to do less. Instead, Apple seemingly just threw up their hands and did it all." - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet
