"The home’s resident, who did not wish to be identified, said he had met Nunez-Figueroa online and they had gone on about six dates. He cautioned other people about allowing acquaintances into their homes. “Before you have somebody come in your house really check them out … really give it some time before you let somebody in, because they might want to stay,” he told KTLA." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Poor kitty! Did she make it to the vet yet? - Katy S
twice, in fact. we are not 100% sure what's going on yet. will be starting antibiotics in case there is an underlying bacterial infection somewhere. her kidney/liver numbers yesterday were not good at all, so I am hoping it is the infection and not the more serious reason. she is stable at the moment, and the vet was pleased with how she is doing so far today, so we just have to watch and wait. - holly #ravingfangirl

The earliest known Turkish settlers in the United States arrived in 1586 when Sir Francis Drake brought at least two hundred Muslims, identified as Turks and Moors, to the newly established English colony of Roanoke on the coast of present-day North Carolina. Only a short time before reaching Roanoke, Drake's fleet of some thirty ships had liberated these Muslims from Spanish colonial forces in the Caribbean where they had been condemned to hard labor as galley slaves.[9] Historical records indicate that Drake had promised to return the liberated galley slaves, and the English government did ultimately repatriate about one hundred of them to the Ottoman realms. - Halil from Bookmarklet
Significant waves of Turkish immigration to the United States began during the period between 1820 and 1920.[10] About 300,000 people immigrated from the Ottoman Empire to the United States, although only 50,000 of these immigrants were Muslim Turks whilst the rest were mainly Arabs, Azeri, Armenians, Greeks, Jews and other Muslim groups under the Ottoman rule. - Halil
Most ethnic Turks feared that they would not be accepted in a Christian country because of their religion and often adopted and registered under a Christian name at the port of entry in order to gain easy access to the United States;[12][13] moreover, many declared themselves as "Syrians" or even "Armenians" in order to avoid discrimination. - Halil

I'm not sure I see how this data means that men suck. Am I missing something? Imho youth will often be a main reason for attraction. I thought that was just part of human nature. Women in this sample may have been responding mainly from a place of "the men I am attracted to who are date worthy", while men may have been responding more from a "she's hot/cute regardless of whether or not I end up dating her." - Corinne L
Rudder's new book, Dataclysm, is really entertaining -- easy 60 min read -- showing how in the behavorial sciences one should definitely NOT rely on self-reporting and polls. Observe how people actually behave, don't ask them -- collect their preferences via their clicks and keyboard activities. Technology from online ad marketing does have fascinating uses. BTW we are also such racists, despite what we might even tell ourselves. Overall, cool data science application on social graphs. - Adriano

One of the greatest tips I can give to anyone packing for a move: Wrap your breakables in the fabrics things you own. It's faster packing than using newspaper, takes up less space overall, and your stuff won't be all dirty when you unpack. Example: Wrapping dishes & nicknacks in towels, curtains, & t-shirts. ;) - April Russo

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

My grandfather passed away 20 years ago this November.

Coloring Isn't Just For Kids. It Can Actually Help Adults Combat Stress.
"Coloring is an activity that we tend to associate with children. As we grow older, we put aside our crayons and colored pencils in favor of more respectable writing utensils like pens and highlighters. However, it turns out coloring can be beneficial for adults -- namely for its de-stressing power. The practice generates wellness, quietness and also stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses and creativity. In fact, publishers have lately been launching coloring books specifically for adults. The trend is alive and well in countries in Europe and North America. Most recently, in Spain, the publication Espasa published Coloréitor, with illustrations by well-known cartoonist Forges. Does Coloring Really De-stress? One of the first psychologists to apply coloring as a relaxation technique was Carl G. Jüng in the early 20th century. He did this through mandalas: circular designs with concentric shapes similar to the Gothic churches’ rose windows. They have their origin in... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

Muslim scholar discovered America 500 years before Columbus
Abu Raihan al-Biruni, who was born in the year 973 in what is today known as Uzbekistan, was the first person to officially suggest that an undiscovered landmass in the ocean between the Europe and Asia actually existed. Although al-Biruni, who made the claim in the early eleventh century, never himself laid eyes on the Americas, his unmatched expertise on geography and mapping led him to the conclusion that the known world – which spanned from the west coasts of Europe and Africa to the east coasts of Asia – only accounted for two-fifths of the world. - Halil from Bookmarklet
His knowledge of both Middle-Eastern and Indian languages, as well as being trained in mathematics, astronomy, mineralogy, geography, cartography, geometry and trigonometry under great scholars like Ahmad al-Farghani, gave him deep insight into the sciences of various fields and civilizations. Al-Biruni began by working out the latitudinal and longitudinal locations of various cities in... more... - Halil

Will someone figure out for me if there are some forces in play that would make it reasonable to hypothesize that that there should be large raised landmasses rather than just water between Europe/ Africa and Asia? Or was the hypothesis just based on the stupid amount of open ocean his new calculations would give without the landmass? - Eivind
All scientific hypotheses have a speculative origin to some degree that drives others to either prove or disprove it, if science didn't work that way we'd still be treating people with leeches. This guy was one of the few people of his time to hypothesise that the world was round and not flat, this and other facts and his own calculations about the worlds circumference probably lead him... more... - Halil
Hypotheses aren't proved or disproved, Halil, but they can be rejected or supported. And the world back then wasn't as flat as popular legend would have you believe :) I was just wondering out loud if he had more than the "nonsensicalness" of the large ocean to base his guess on, but I suspect not. - Eivind from Android
Whilst I agree there are subtle differences in the meaning of those words, they essentially mean the same thing: "I believe the milk in that glass is sweet" 1) I will prove that the milk is sweet by drinking it! 2) I will confirm that the milk is sweet by drinking it! The same meaning. - Halil
In the case of using the scientific method, semantics are important. You never "prove" something with science. You can reject or fail to reject a null hypothesis (the status quo) or support/fail to support an alternative hypothesis. In colloquial speech, people often use all sorts of terminology about science that scientists (well, any good ones) would never use, e.g. "prove",... more... - Jenny H. from Android
