"After several failed attempts to talk to the spies himself, Šeba asked his student to explain to them that he wasn’t a tax collector, or a criminal — he was simply a “crazy” scientist willing to trade tequila for their data. The men handed over their used papers. When the researchers plotted thousands of bus departure times on a computer, their suspicions were confirmed: The interaction between drivers caused the spacing between departures to exhibit a distinctive pattern previously observed in quantum physics experiments." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
"Scientists now believe the widespread phenomenon, known as “universality,” stems from an underlying connection to mathematics, and it is helping them to model complex systems from the Internet to Earth’s climate." -- odd sense of things. Doesn't math have a connection to the phenomena? It's the outcome of the interaction of packets of things, which IMHO explains the connection to math without suggesting a more radical ontology. - Todd Hoff

Climatology versus Pseudoscience book tests whose predictions have been right | Dana Nuccitelli | Environment | The Guardian
"On the flip side of the coin, climate contrarians have predicted anything from minimal warming to rapid global cooling. Their predictions have generally been terribly inaccurate, and yet the same people who have made these wrong predictions are still treated as credible experts by certain segments of the media. It seems as though their history of inaccurate predictions has no effect on their credibility. When scientists with a history of inaccurate predictions are treated with the same credibility as those who have made accurate predictions, that’s a problem." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
Guess funds Dana Nuccitelli ? http://www.bbc.com/news... - Eric Logan
I personally think arguing over what the climate is or is not doing because we have such a little ability to change it is like a crust of bread fallen on a stove arguing with another crust whether the stove is getting hotter or colder. What to me the real issue we can do something about is responsible living on earth. - RetiredTeacherD
When it is financially viable which may be sooner than many expected if oil prices continue to slide. We will transition to something other than fossil fuels because it will be a real economic imperative.

Just an amazing garden. Wish I could do that sort of thing here, but our trees have already matured. - Todd Hoff
did anyone get to the actual High End Permaculture video? all I get is 15 min sales pitch for his online course! - Maхx Tee
They seem to be redirecting to their class now. - Todd Hoff
I managed to get to it eventually. I think you may have to play the course video first. Try fast-forwarding to near the end of the video. - Ken Morley
Now I see it (and about 2 dozen other videos), looks like course promo is over. :) - Maхx Tee
But I am left puzzled, what is considered "high end" about the garden showed? - Maхx Tee
It was created for a very expensive house that previously had more traditional landscaping. It's also high end in a design sense. Creating lux relaxation spaces from a unique pallet of plants and design principles also gives a very high end feel. It's not strictly for production, it's not strictly utilitarian, it's obviously and capably designed to be enjoyed and give the owner a sense of themselves. - Todd Hoff
RE: 2 dozen other videos - I particularly enjoyed "5 Acre Abundance on a Budget" where he maps out his thought process on transforming one of his early, smaller properties. "Permaculture in Paradise" is also very inspiring. :) - Ken Morley
I took a permaculture class from him and he's an inspiring guy. These videos are really high quality, I like the direction he's taking in trying to preach outside the choir. - Todd Hoff
My wife has been talking up permaculture to me for the last year -- I should probably start paying attention. - Sean McBride

Dr. Jeff Masters' WunderBlog : Second Warmest January on Record Globally | Weather Underground
"January 2015 was the second warmest January since record keeping began in 1880, said NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) on Thursday. NASA also rated January 2015 as the 2nd warmest January on record, behind January 2007, which had the warmest departure from average of any month in recorded history. January 2015's near-record warmth continues a trend of very warm months for the planet--December 2014 was the warmest December on record, and 2014 was Earth's warmest calendar year on record. Global ocean temperatures during January 2015 were the 3rd warmest on record, and global land temperatures were the 2nd warmest on record. Global satellite-measured temperatures in January 2015 for the lowest 8 km of the atmosphere were the 7th or 5th warmest in the 37-year record, according to Remote Sensing Systems and the University of Alabama Huntsville (UAH), respectively." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Until recently, archaeologists would have told you they were both inhospitable environments devoid of large-scale human settlements. But they were wrong.

Ingress: The Incredible & Addictive Covert Game Being Played All Around You
Show all
"A little over two years ago, a small team within Google called Niantic Labs introduced Ingress, a game that adds a virtual reality layer on top of the entire world, which you can claim, defend or destroy for your cause - depending on which side you've chosen. And while I tested early versions of the game while it was developing at Google, and dabbled with it just after launch, I put it aside before jumping back in with both feet two months ago, when a pair of colleagues on my new team couldn't stop talking about it. And now I won't stop talking about it either. Simply put, in my view, it's the most well-designed, intelligently deployed concept I've ever seen for an immersive experience on mobile, which encourages you to get off your butt, explore the world around you, and find new people to help you achieve goals together. Every facet of the application, even while it seems mysterious, is designed to help you get out of house, to explore new crannies of your neighborhood (and beyond)... more... - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet

40 brilliant idioms that simply can’t be translated literally | TED Blog
"It’s a piece of cake. You can’t put lipstick on a pig. Why add fuel to the fire? Idioms are those phrases that mean more than the sum of their words. As our Open Translation Project volunteers translate TED Talks into 105 languages, they’re often challenged to translate English idioms into their language. Which made us wonder: what are their favorite idioms in their own tongue?" - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"Below, we asked translators to share their favorite idioms and how they would translate literally. The results are laugh-out-loud funny." - Maitani
Does "Die Katze im Sack kaufen" also imply that you've been tricked and didn't get what you thought you bought (which is the Norwegian meaning), or is it just any "blind" purchase? - Eivind
In italian we say "saltare di palo in frasca", similar to the french "Sauter du coq à l’âne" (from pole to leaf), we also have "costare un occhio nella testa" exactly as in spanish “me costó un ojo de la cara” and of course many others. The one I like the most is "sono andato nel pallone", literally "I went into the ball" or "into the big ball". It's up to you to guess the meaning. :-) - miki

Why climate scientists are right about how hot the planet is going to get - The Washington Post
"Right now, humans are well on pace to at least double carbon dioxide concentrations from preindustrial levels by the middle of the century. But given how complex the climate system is, how do we know that the IPCC’s sensitivity estimate holds true? There’s a lot at stake — if the scientists are overestimating the climate sensitivity then global warming might be less worrying. No wonder that climate “skeptics” have often cast doubt on the matter." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Social networks in primates: smart and tolerant species have more efficient networks | Nature http://www.nature.com/srep...
Networks.jpg
"Network optimality has been described in genes, proteins and human communicative networks. In the latter, optimality leads to the efficient transmission of information with a minimum number of connections. Whilst studies show that differences in centrality exist in animal networks with central individuals having higher fitness, network efficiency has never been studied in animal groups. Here we studied 78 groups of primates (24 species). We found that group size and neocortex ratio were correlated with network efficiency. Centralisation (whether several individuals are central in the group) and modularity (how a group is clustered) had opposing effects on network efficiency, showing that tolerant species have more efficient networks. Such network properties affecting individual fitness could be shaped by natural selection. Our results are in accordance with the social brain and cultural intelligence hypotheses, which suggest that the importance of network efficiency and information flow through social learning relates to cognitive abilities." (...) - Amira

I misremember Iraq - http://mondoweiss.net/2015...
Scott Long comments on the Brian Williams scandal that he lied about his experience in Iraq, but he doesn't understand why this is an issue. Williams made up a story, but he was in the middle of the most fantastic made-up story in American history. The Iraq war was a gigantic fiction: the reasons were fake, the goals were fake, the triumph was fake. Rather than Williams' tall tales, the real scandal is journalism’s complete submission, as the “war on terror” raged, to the fantasies of patriotic allegiance.

10 Things People Once Complained Would Ruin The English Language
"You've probably heard that English is being ruined — by the Internet, by texting, by Americans, by young people who have no respect for proper grammar. But it turns out that people have always worried over English, and over the centuries, have accused all sorts of things of "ruining" the language. Is the Innanet RUINING teh English Language??? ¯\(°_o)/¯ There exists a certain paranoia that the web will somehow destroy the English language as we all… Read more gizmodo. com Top image made with the Historic tale construction kit at bayeux.datensalat.net. 1. The Norman Conquest Let's start with one thing that actually did put English at genuine risk. In 1066, William the Conqueror occupied England and claimed the English throne. Being the Duke of Normandy, William did not speak English, but Norman French, and French became the language of government and business. But for centuries, English held on at the fringes, the language of the occupied people, even as king and queen after king and... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

Learning with all the senses: Movement, images facilitate vocabulary learning -- ScienceDaily
""Atesi" - what sounds like a word from the Elven language of Lord of the Rings is actually a Vimmish word meaning "thought". Scientists have used Vimmish, an artificial language specifically developed for scientific research, to study how people can best memorize foreign-language terms. According to the researchers, it is easier to learn vocabulary if the brain can link a given word with different sensory perceptions. The motor system in the brain appears to be especially important: When someone not only hears vocabulary in a foreign language, but expresses it using gestures, they will be more likely to remember it. Also helpful, although to a slightly lesser extent, is learning with images that correspond to the word. Learning methods that involve several senses, and in particular those that use gestures, are therefore superior to those based only on listening or reading." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"Thus, we learn with all our senses. Taste and smell also have a role in learning, and feelings play an important part too. But does multisensory learning work according to the principle: the more senses, the better? "That could well be so," says von Kriegstein, "but we don't know how much the learning outcomes improve with the addition of more senses. Ideally, however, the individual... more... - Maitani

"This bringing together of Joyce’s esthetic theory with the māyā idea was a wonderful illumination for me. I just woke up this morning and said, ”My god, I have finally got it after eighty years.” I have known the implications of esthetic arrest, but I’d never linked it up to the māyā idea. It is your mental attitude that determines whether you experience the projecting or the revealing power. The world is there in both modes. It is not that the world changes, it’s your consciousness." - Todd Hoff
The idea esthetic arrest as defining art is too pragmatic for me. It means something is art if it stops a viewer and transports them beyond categories. It doesn't leave room for an artist producing something by their process, but because of how it's received it's not therefor art. Intent matters as well. But neither results or intent are ever enough. - Todd Hoff

You know the super bowl commercial I liked, surprisingly, was the princess cruise one reading about our human relationship with the sea. I'm easily moved by little puppies, little kiddies, and little ponies, but not cruise lines, but I was quite moved by this one.
