The First Real Reason We Need To Sleep - Business Insider
"Scientists have just reported the first major mechanical reason our brains need to sleep — certain cleaning mechanisms in the brain work better when we shut the brain down. Just like how dump trucks take to the city streets during the pre-dawn hours because there's less traffic, our brain's cleaners also work best when there's less going on." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
Sleep is unproductive and a waste of time. - Louis Gray
But can you really trust a man with a brain filled with garbage :-) - Todd Hoff
No offense, but if you think No Country for Old Men was lessened/ruined/brought down by its ending, I think you’re wrong.
Was it brought up by the ending? I don't think so. - Todd Hoff
brought up in what sense? - Big Joe Silence
Brought down in what sense? - Todd Hoff from iPhone
In the sense that it doesn't really resolve. A lot of people I know like the movie except they think the ending is unsatisfying and a let-down. - Jandy

Revenge has turned into a telenovela. Shame. It had potential.
I have been saying this since the beginning! I can't stop watching it because it's so ridiculous, but I honestly keep thinking, wait, isn't this like a telenovela? - Corinne L
I don't watch it but am forced to catch snippets when wife has control of DVR. If they can't stay on one scene for more than 30 seconds and more than half the cast has been dead or tortured and yet now rich it's a telenovela. - Steve C Team Marina
I guess they have to do that to extend the number of seasons. I mean really, go tell your dad it's you already. How silly is that? - Todd Hoff
And then after she tells him it's her, she doesn't go into all the shit Victoria did to her. I'm just like what? And why is the David we are seeing now so different from peaceful, flashback David? - Petty LaBelle
Is it really David? Is she really remembering things correctly? Is she really his daughter? What father doesn't recognize his daughter? - Todd Hoff
And why won't anyone make David shave?! - Corinne L
Because he's evil David? - Todd Hoff

That moment when you finally awaken to the realization that dwelling on something that already happened and can't be undone or redone is totally stupid and unproductive and unnecessarily crazy making.
this realisation doesn't always change behaviour. "I hate television. I hate it as much as peanuts. But I can't stop eating peanuts." - Orson Welles - Big Joe Silence

Impression of the new iPad air is favorable so far. It's much lighter so it's easier to hold when reading. It's mich more responsive than my iPad 2. The lte is great. And the ac wifi is a dream. The screen is less reflective which makes a big difference. The narrow bezels make it harder to hold when reading.

A ‘Stupidity’ Virus Has Been Discovered
"A virus known to attack green algae in lakes and rivers can also infect human brains -- and it’s making dummies out of us. The virus, called ATCV-1, can impair cognitive activity, learning and memory, essentially making a person who has the virus less intelligent, researchers in the U.S. have found. Scientists said this is the first time the virus has been observed in people." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
“This is a striking example showing that the ‘innocuous’ microorganisms we carry can affect behavior and cognition,” Robert Yolken, a virologist at Johns Hopkins Medical School in Maryland, who led the original study, told the Independent. All people have physiological differences “encoded in the set of genes each inherits from parents, yet some of these differences are fueled by the various microorganisms we harbor and the way they interact with our genes,” Yolken said. - Steve C Team Marina

This App Will Train You How To Read A 120,000-Word Novel In 2 Hours - Business Insider
"In real life, the Boston tech startup Spritz makes a speed-reading app that allows you to do just that. After a small amount of practice reading with the Spritz app, you should be able to read at 1,000 words per minute — a speed fast enough to let you take in a 120,000 word novel in just two hours. (The company also had a promotional integration on the Lucy web site.)" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
I wonder how fast your emotional system can react. If you are reading for pleasure it seems that speed doesn't allow empathy to ripple through your body which means you aren't really experiencing what you are reading. - Todd Hoff

Recommendation theory | MIT News
"In their new paper, the MIT researchers show that so long as the number of clusters required to describe the variation in a population is low, collaborative filtering yields nearly optimal predictions. But in practice, how low is that number? To answer that question, the researchers examined data on 10 million users of a movie-streaming site and identified 200 who had rated the same 500 movies. They found that, in fact, just five clusters — five probabilistic models — were enough to account for most of the variation in the population." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

How a Memory Is Made | The Scientist Magazine® -
How a Memory Is Made | The Scientist Magazine®
"“It never ceases to amaze me that we know enough about memory to be able to channel specific memories to specific cells,” said Silva. “We are able to genetically engineer the insular cortex so that we can determine ahead of time which neurons will be engaged in which memory. To me, that’s really magical.” On the other hand, he said, these experiments are “limited, because in the real world, real memory is not about single strong memories.” Rather, said Silva, we remember events as “strings” of individual sensory memories. He said his team is now working to understand how these strings are formed, and CREB clearly plays a part. For Costa-Mattioli, the demonstration that similar processes control memory allocation in different parts of the brain is “very tantalizing. . . . Perhaps this mechanism allows the strengthening of connections between brain areas.”" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

"Claudia Schnugg: This development, to create a three dimensional objects from changes of physical three dimensional objects over time (e.g., how objects, arms or legs change while moving through a room) is extremely interesting if you think of Daniel’s work in its bigger context. He first developed static pictures that show how slices of the world change over time. Based on that he developed videos that were able to demonstrate time through this technique in a way that addresses more senses. Real Imaginary Objects is now the next step, where Daniel develops sculptures that show time as manifestation in the real world that can be touched and viewed from any perspective." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

"Crossing the threshold from unawareness to awareness [could be] a reflection of bound crossing [in the integrator]. In this way, the integration-to-bound theory may help to resolve the contradiction between the subjective report of free will and the requirement for causal antecedents to non-capricious, willed actions. …our results provide a starting point for investigating mechanisms underlying concepts such as self, will and intention to act, which might be conserved among mammalian species" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

A Much Cheaper Grid Battery Comes to Market | MIT Technology Review
"A new kind of battery that stores energy from solar and wind power cheaply and cleanly has hit the market. It is by far the cheapest of a new generation of large, long-lived batteries that could make it possible to rely heavily on intermittent, renewable energy sources. Aquion Energy, a company spun out of Carnegie Mellon University, recently delivered the first of its batteries to operators of small power grids, or “microgrids,” that can operate independently of the centralized grid." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Changes in U.S. precipitation: wet areas to get wetter, dry areas to get drier | NOAA
"The twenty-first century may bring the United States more of the weather it's already got, whether wet or dry. The U.S. National Climate Assessment, issued in May 2014, examined multiple model projections of seasonal precipitation over the rest of this century. In general, precipitation is projected to increase in the northernmost parts of the country, and decrease in the southwestern United States. These maps show projected seasonal precipitation changes for the final decades of this century (2071-2099) compared to the end of the last century (1970-1999) depending on two possible scenarios for greenhouse gas emissions. One scenario assumes that greenhouse gas emissions peak sometime between 2010 and 2020 and rapidly decline afterwards. The other scenario assumes that greenhouse gas emissions continue increasing throughout the 21st century." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

California on pace for hottest year ever | -
California on pace for hottest year ever |
"LOS ANGELES — This past month was the third-warmest October in California since officials began keeping records more than a century ago, continuing the state’s pattern in what is likely to be its hottest year ever, according to government climatologists. The average temperature statewide last month was 64.5 degrees, less than one degree under the all-time record set in 2003, the National Climatic Data Center reported. In the larger view, 2014 remains on pace to be California’s warmest year with an average temperature through October that is 1.6 degrees above the previous hottest years — 2003 and 1992 — when the average through October was 62.2 degrees." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
Just did some basic measuring and calculations to see if my pour-over coffee system is more or less economical than my K-Cup coffee system.
When I make a whole (10-cup) pot of coffee in my regular coffee pot, I generally use 8 tablespoons of ground coffee. When I make a 12-16 oz. cup of coffee using pour-over, I generally use 3-4 tablespoons of ground coffee. At first, I thought that seemed like a pretty insane waste of money (I'd use the same amount of ground coffee for 2 cups of coffee as I do for a whole pot). Then, I thought about how expensive K-Cups generally are. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I can't really make a 16 oz. cup of coffee with a K-Cup, but I can make a 12 oz. cup (though, that's usually too weak for me to enjoy it). Normally, I'll make either an 8 oz. cup or a 10 oz. cup. At that point, 1 K-Cup is approximately equivalent to 2 tablespoons of ground coffee in my pour-over. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Figuring an average cost of $.50/K-Cup (many are more expensive than that, some are a bit cheaper than that), and an average cost of $15.00/lb. of ground coffee, I figure there has to be at least 60 tablespoons of coffee in a pound in order for it to be equivalent in cost to the K-Cup. I just dumped less than a pound of Starbucks coffee into a 4-cup measuring cup (which would be ~64 tablespoons, if my math is correct - 4 Tbsp = 1/4 cup; 16 Tbsp = 1 cup; 64 Tbsp = 4 cups). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Based on that, it appears that the pour-over is more economical than the K-Cups, and not a whole lot less convenient. Yes, I could use the re-usable filter/cup in the Keurig machine, but, using 2 Tbsp for an 8-10 oz. cup of coffee in that thing always results in grounds spilling out all over the place. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
As a sidenote, the Keurig machine cost $100-150 when I bought it; the "deluxe" pour-over I bought from Starbucks (which also includes a nice wooden box with space for 2 pour-overs for regular cups or 1 pour-over for a tall mug) was $25 on clearance. That said, I still use the Keurig machine to actually heat the water before I pour it into the pour-over (it's much quicker than the microwave), so that's why the cost of the systems is an aside, rather than a part of the actual discussion. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
As a second sidenote, while it's possible for me to sample a bunch of different kinds of coffee with the pour-over system, it's much easier to store/buy samples in K-Cups than it is to try to store all of that ground coffee in various places. Even with 4 or 5 different kinds of ground coffee right now, my counter space is pretty limited. If I dump the ground coffee into a container (as... more... - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Interesting thoughts - I use the reusable refillable K-Cup mostly. I have. A selection of coffee and tea K Cups for guests. I - WarLord
Great analysis. Just wondering about replacement costs. How long until a Keurig machine needs replacement? - Todd Hoff
WarLord - the refillable one is great if it works for you; as I said, it always spews grounds all over the place when I try to use it, due to the amount of coffee I use in it. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Todd - As long as you treat the Keurig machine well (using filtered water, cleaning with vinegar every 6 months or so, etc.), it should last for a few years, at least. The one my ex-wife is using has worked well for ~5 years, now (the issue she's having with it now is that the gasket that goes between the top needle & the K-Cup itself disappeared, so it leaks when you try to use it). The one I'm currently using (one of the Cuisinart models) is only a year old, so I can't comment on its longevity, yet. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
As one more sidenote that I thought of today: With the pour-over, I have the opportunity, given the right circumstances, to re-use some of the coffee. For instance, this afternoon, I made an 8 oz. cup of coffee for myself with 2Tbsp. of coffee, and drank it pretty quickly. Then, by adding 2 more Tbsp. to the existing coffee grounds, I was able to make 16 oz. of coffee in my travel mug before I headed out the door. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
