FriendFeed Bookmarklet Hosting: Micah W.'s ffbookmarklet v1.03 "Woot Tube" Release --  draggable version
Having trouble with the FF Bookmarklet in Chrome or other browsers? This is an updated version thanks to Micah and sizofroid. To make it easier to install, I'm now hosting it at my site, so you don't have to jump through hoops, you can just drag the updated version to your bookmark bar. - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
Yay! [update: uh, I don't see the actual bookmarklet on that page] - lris
Hmm, what browser are you using, Iris? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Chrome, Mac. Here's what I see http://screencast.com/t... - lris
Well that's weird. Chrome on Windows is working for me. When you go to the FF tools page, is the button there visible for you? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Yes it is - lris
Iris, have you disabled JavaScript by chance? I had a coworker test with Chrome on his Mac and it was working for him. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
No. And I did have adblocker running but I disabled it for that site. - lris
I love you. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I love you too, Melly! - Stephen Mack
Iris, hold on, gonna try something to fix it. - Stephen Mack
I'm running Chrome on Windows if that helps, FYI. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Iris, I changed how the image for the button was hosted. Did that fix it for you? - Stephen Mack
Yay! I see it! - lris
Yay! Hmm, you must have some pretty high levels of security set. All I changed was copying the image for the button from FF's server to mine. - Stephen Mack
I am not aware of extra high levels of security. Maybe I'm accidentally extremely careful. :) - lris
I'm sure it's no accident. :) - Stephen Mack
Hopefully no one else is having any trouble? - Stephen Mack
I added the older versions at the bottom, just in case there are any compatibility issues. - Stephen Mack
When I saw "draggable" I first thought it meant the popup can be dragged around within the page, to make it easier to select images that it would ordinarily be covering up...like this old one: http://pastebin.ca/1323845 I am still using that one, but installed as a dedicated CustomButton. If you have the Firefox add-on installed, it's easy to install the button from here: http://appsapps.info/ff... What I would like to have is a combo of all the goodies into one awesome button. - April Russo
April, that's a cool idea. I couldn't get the one you linked to work for me, though. I wonder if we can beg Micah to add that functionality into his version. - Stephen Mack
I just did. ;) - April Russo
Ah! I don't know about CustomButton, though. What is taht? - Stephen Mack
Which one could you not get to work? The 1st or 2nd link? The 1st is instructions for modifying the official bookmarklet to use the drag & drop popup. The 2nd link requires the CustomButtons add-on installed in Firefox. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US... You'd just click the link on my page to install the button, then right click a Firefox toolbar, go to... more... - April Russo
2nd link. But I see what you mean, it requires the add-on. Does it work on Chrome or IE, or just Firefox? - Stephen Mack
Compatibility: Mozilla Firefox 1.5+ SeaMonkey 2.0+ Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0+ Mozilla Sunbird 0.8-0.9 / Calendar 1.0pre KompoZer 0.8b1-0.8b3 Flock 0.7-1.5+ and Pale Moon (which is what I am using) - April Russo

Rather unexpectedly got offered a job today, now I just have to hope that the physical therapy works well enough that I will be able to do the job without screwing over the whole kitchen. I'm going to be in charge of desserts for a new restaurant! Working with my favorite co-worker ever!
I'm excited to somewhat have my own "kingdom" creatively speaking. I didn't even apply for this job, just went to meet the executive chef (my former co-worker, close friend, and on-again-off-again (currently on) roommate is the sous chef & had recommended me as pastry chef). He was like, "yeah, we'll work around that [injuries], it's about the right fit... based on this conversation, I want you for the job, just gotta check on salary with the owners." - Lo
I was "..... what?" I didn't even get to wear my interview suit! WHAAAAAAAAAAA. I'm afraid of not being able to pull my weight, but I know the universe playing a trump card when I see it. It's usually smarter than me, so we'll follow this rabbit hole and see where it takes us, eh? - Lo
Sometimes that's all you can do ^ - Steve C Team Marina
Thanks, I need to be reminded :) - Lo
Opening slated for November 7. It's been pushed back a few times, which was lucky for me! - Lo
The executive chef has a science background, too (geology). And he thinks the job has to be fun, and stay fun. The owners aren't sinking everything into this, so there is less pressure to perform financially. They really wanted women in the kitchen, at least one, which worked in my favor. Their menu is focused on local but the main emphasis is deliciousness (you'd be surprised how often that's NOT the key issue in food prep). Overall a super awesome environment. The only downside is early mornings - Lo
There, I think that's all the good stuff. Gotta love how no matter how long I go without posting here, it's my FIRST STOP with news. I didn't even tell my family yet lol - Lo
Congrats, Lo! We'd love to see pics of your creations. :) - Anne Bouey
Great news! - Janet from FFHound!
Very cool, Lo. Very cool! - Bette Cooper
Congratulations! - bentley from FFHound(roid)!

Am I doing something wrong if I'm shooting the moon at f/8? It's full and bright so I guess but it still feels weird.
The last moon photo I took was at f/8. - John (bird whisperer)
Oh, when you said 'shooting the moon', I thought you were playing Hearts (or Spades, or whichever games does that). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Of course, an eclipsed moon is darker, so that might be a consideration. - John (bird whisperer)
The moon is reflected sunlight, so it should get the same exposure as outdoors on a bright sunny day: f/16 @125 for ISO 100 (the "Sunny F16 rule"). During the eclipse it will be 1-3 stops darker. - Glen Campbell
•Try the "sunny f/16" rule: Shoot at f/16 with a shutter speed of 1/200 second if your film or sensor sensitivity is ISO 200. •Owing to the atmospheric haze and dust, and so forth, you might need to shoot at f/5.6 using a shutter speed of 1/250 second. •Try the "loony 11" rule: Shoot at f/11 at 1/ISO.[2] •Try Antonio Marques' suggestion: Aperture at f/11, ISO 100, 1/125 to 1/250.[3] - WarLord

Radioactivity in Norway's reindeers hits high - The Local - http://www.thelocal.no/2014100...
Radioactivity in Norway's reindeers hits high - The Local
"Much higher levels of radioactivity than normal have been found among Norway's grazing animals, especially its reindeer population, a study revealed on Monday. Almost 30 years after the nuclear plant explosion in Chernobyl, this autumn, more radioactivity has been measured in Norwegian grazing animals than has been noted in many years. Lavrans Skuterud, a scientist at the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority (Statens strålevern), said: “This year is extreme.” In September, 8200 becquerel per kilo of the radioactive substance Caesium-137 was measured in reindeer from Våga reinlag AS, in Jotunheimen, central Norway. In comparison, the highest amount at the same place was 1500 becquerel among the reindeer in September 2012. The research also measured radioactivity in Norwegian sheep this year. Both in Valdres in southwest Norway and Gudbrandsdalen in southeast Norway, 4500 becquerel per kilo meat from sheep was measured at most. 600 becquerel per kilo is the safe limit allowed for sheep meat to be sold for human consumption." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
" The Radiation Protection scientist is quite certain about the cause. Lavrans Skuterud said: “This year, there has been extreme amounts of mushroom. In addition, the mushroom season has lasted for a long time. And the mushroom has grown very high up on the mountains.” Especially the gypsy mushroom (Cortinarius Caperatus) has been a problem. This is a good food mushroom, both for people... more... - Jessie

Scientists’ depressing new discovery about the brain - http://www.salon.com/2013...
"Nyan and his collaborators have been running experiments trying to answer this terrifying question about American voters: Do facts matter? The answer, basically, is no. When people are misinformed, giving them facts to correct those errors only makes them cling to their beliefs more tenaciously." - Andrew C (✔)
"People who thought WMDs were found in Iraq believed that misinformation even more strongly when they were shown a news story correcting it. People who thought George W. Bush banned all stem cell research kept thinking he did that even after they were shown an article saying that only some federally funded stem cell work was stopped.

The complicity cost of racial inclusion - Al Jazeera America - 2014 Aug 24 http://america.aljazeera.com/opinion...
"Expanding what it means to be white isn't good news; it only preserves structural privilege" - Victor Ganata
"What is white in America (and what isn’t) has always been subject to revision. The Irish and Italians are examples of groups that have been invited into whiteness." - Victor Ganata
"The Boston Marathon bombers are examples of how one might be escorted out. Despite their light skin and Caucasian ethnicity, the Tsarnaev brothers were depicted as dark-skinned 'Islamic terrorists' on the cover of The Week magazine. American whiteness may be able to absorb mass shooters of schools and movie theaters, but once a bomb was involved, the media seemed eager to relocate the Tsarnaevs to an imaginary Middle East." - Victor Ganata
"But race is a social construct, not a scientific fact: American whiteness was an ideological creation to rationalize the enslavement of Africans and the extermination of native peoples." - Victor Ganata
"For the past 50 years, Asian-Americans have been the so-called model minority — the minority group held up by politicians and the media to demonstrate the potential for success for people who aren’t white. It is no coincidence that this narrative arose alongside the black power movement in the 1960s. Asian-American success over time became a rhetorical bludgeon used to deny the real and ongoing effects of institutional racism and white supremacy on African-Americans." - Victor Ganata
"By passively accepting the privileges of whiteness, Asian-Americans become complicit in America’s present system of hierarchy, a system in which the nation’s institutions inflict ongoing injustices on a racial underclass. Highly paid Asian-American Google employees do not bear more responsibility to combat racial injustice than similarly positioned white people, but they don’t bear... more... - Andrew C (✔)

Kitsap County road crews battling persistent beaver
"He builds it. They tear it down. He rebuilds it. They tear it down again. That back-and-forth defines the battle being waged between county road crews and a very determined beaver. "They're workers, you know. They're busy all the time, I appreciate that about the animals," said Kitsap County Roads Superintendent Jacques Dean. "But at some point what they're doing is compromising public safety, and we can't let that happen." Dean says his crews have had to dismantle a beaver dam beneath a bridge on Long View Road three times since August. Each time, the beaver returns to the same spot and starts over. At one point the dam was 40-feet long and 3-feet tall. "It's costing us a lot of time to keep sending our people out to haul away all the wood, brush and mud," Dean said. "We've decided we need to catch the animal."" - Jessie from Bookmarklet

A Beautiful Glimpse Into The 'Hidden World' Of Young Muslim Women In China - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014...
A Beautiful Glimpse Into The 'Hidden World' Of Young Muslim Women In China
A Beautiful Glimpse Into The 'Hidden World' Of Young Muslim Women In China
"Through her series, Marchi documents the daily lives of young women navigating the ins and outs of a Muslim identity in contemporary China. The project began with the experiences of Ding Lan -- Fatimah is her Muslim name -- a 22-year-old whom the artist met in Cairo, Egypt. "Many young Muslim students move from their country to Egypt to learn about Islam," Marchi explains in a statement. "They are Muslim -- but they do not know much about this religion. Once in Egypt they discover it through the study of Arabic, the Koran, and through life in Cairo." Marchi has spent the last two years exploring this "hidden world" of devotees. Young Chinese Muslims who, like Ding Lan, traveled to Cairo to attend Al Azhar, a world renowned Islamic institution that is famously free. The haven attracts many students; among them, 20 to 25-year-old women who identify as Huizu, a Muslim minority in China, and hail from regions like Xinjiang, Qinghai, Gansu, Ningxia or Henan. Henan is where Ding Lan lives, and where much of Marchi's series takes place." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"According to research by the US-based Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, over 23 million individuals in China identified as Muslim as of 2010 -- amounting to 1.8% of the country's population. The number is expected to rise to nearly 30 million by the year 2030." - Jessie
"who identify as Huizu, a Muslim minority in China, and hail from regions like Xinjiang". I wish they were a little more clear that Huizu != Uighur, which I think is what most Muslims in Xinjiang are, but aside from that I like the photos. - Jessie
