The Energy of Life | The Scientist Magazine®
"Energy is the currency of biology. By harvesting electrons from a stunning range of starting materials, Earth’s organisms produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which powers biological reactions. In the case of mammals and most eukaryotes, sugars and other organic molecules are common electron sources, the oxidation of which drives ATP production. Bacteria and archaea can use a range of other chemicals, from sulfide to iron to ammonium. Cells take up these electron-rich molecules and capture their electrons, which jump down an electron transport chain in the mitochondrial or cell membrane. As electrons move along the membrane toward a final electron acceptor, protons are pumped from the cell’s interior to the exterior, setting up a chemical gradient. Finally, protons stream back into the cell, releasing the chemical pressure and generating ATP. With each energy-requiring reaction, from flagella construction to cell division and growth, cells draw upon their ATP bank. The wide variety... more... - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Woman Avoids Smiling for 40 Years to Stop Wrinkles
"A night out with your best friends, marrying your significant other, or the birth of your child can be some of the happiest moments of your life, but you'd never know with Tess Christian — she hasn't smiled in 40 years. Since Christian, 50, was 10 years old, she's never laughed and has barely grinned. No, it's not because Christian has no sense of humor. Instead, she's trying to beat the hands of time and avoid wrinkles. "Everyone asks if I've had Botox, but I haven't, and I know that it's thanks to the fact I haven't laughed or smiled since I was a teenager. My dedication has paid off. I don't have a single line on my face," she said." - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet
Seems to have worked - Todd Hoff
I feel kind of sad for her. I mean, she's getting exactly what she wants so I guess from her perspective it's nothing bad or sad. But to me it just seems sad to not experience sidesplitting laughter or grinning like a Cheshire cat. I've always been told that I have a very expressive face, and that makes me love every single wrinkle and sag even more. <3 - Hookuh Tinypants

Twitter reveals the language of persuasion | Cornell Chronicle - http://www.news.cornell.edu/stories...
"The researchers found these features most likely to generate retweets: Ask people to share. Words like ”please,” “pls,” “plz” and, of course, “retweet” were common in successful messages. Be informative (often measured by length). Use the language of the community, and be consistent with the language you usually use yourself, with which your followers are familiar. The researchers are also testing on Reddit, where users form distinct communities. Imitate the style of newspaper headlines. (In their tests, the researchers used the New York Times as a model.) Use words that appear often in other retweeted messages. Use words that express positive or negative sentiment. Refer to other people, not just yourself. Use third person pronouns. Use generalizations. Statements that can be applied to a variety of situations are the most often repeated. Make it easy to read. The researchers applied a formula used to measure the grade level of a text." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

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

Jon Stewart says he’s leaving The Daily Show · Newswire · The A.V. Club
"Ending one of the most venerable and trusted careers in making a complete mockery of the news, Jon Stewart has announced that he is stepping down as host of The Daily Show. According to sources who were there (some of whom are already passing word along on social media), Stewart let the news slip at the taping of today’s episode, telling those in the audience that he’s retiring. No word yet on when exactly he’s leaving, whether this means he’s ending his time in the anchor chair to focus on being a Serious Movie Director now, or just how much this is Brian Williams’ fault." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"UPDATE: Comedy Central just sent out this official statement confirming the news, and saying that Stewart will remain with The Daily Show until the end of the year. It also says that the show will “endure for years to come,” suggesting that it won’t end with Stewart." - Andrew C (✔)

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

If you're sticking close to the coastline, you could give the Sacramento relatives the heads up & they could meet you in SF or Berkeley, which isn't all that far.

RT @mikedrucker: " we don't really have the budget for defense against the dark arts " - wizard public school
You can only truly be safe if you abstain from the dark arts entirely. Mentioning them may tempt children to dabble. - Jennifer Dittrich
There may be dark arts, but there's really no wizard consensus that dark arts are caused by human behavior. Dark arts have fluctuated since magic was first discovered. - Stephen Mack
As a parent, I hope I can fill out a simple form to exclude my child from any mention of these "dark arts." The government should not dictate when (if ever) I tell my child about dark arts! - Brian Johns
I've always told my children that the dark arts are perfectly natural and nothing to be afraid of. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I like this whole thread, so much. - Laura Krier
Dark arts are just a matter of parental choice. When I was growing up, half the neighborhood was dealing with dark arts. When my cousin was using dark arts, my parents dragged me over there to play with them so that I could get exposure too. I got over it. It's all the modified magic that the kids learn today, it was simpler before we had the common core arts. - Stephen Mack
Plus, now that He-who-must-not-be-named has been defeated once and for all, I really think Defense Against The Dark Arts classes are just funding the military-magic-industrial complex more than anything. - Andrew C (✔)
I agree with Andrew. I learned so many Defenses when I was a boy, but I've forgotten them all because they're just not practical in day to day magic. When was the last time you used Arithmancy outside of a textbook or cramming for half-forgotten OWLs? Modern public wizard schools should be focused on the three Ws (wanding, witchcraft, and wriding brooms) and making sure we're competitive with fast-rising realms like Hibernia. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
As a tax-paying full-blood, I am enraged at the incompetence of our school administrators in squandering their resources and being unable to fund basic curriculum. Nothing is more important than teaching our future wizard generations basic Defenses against the unmentionables. Nothing.

Fragments of Truth: The Psychology of Procrastination: How We Create Categories of the Future
"Tu and Soman hypothesized that one reason for why we procrastinate is that we do not envision time as a linear, continuous entity but instead categorize future deadlines into two categories, the imminent future and the distant future. A spatial analogy to this hypothesized construct is how we categorize distances. A city located at a 400 kilometer distance may be considered as being spatially closer to us if it is located within the same state than another city which may be physically closer (e.g. only 300 kilometers away) but located in a different state. The categories "in my state" and "outside of my state" therefore interfere with the perception of the actual physical distance." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

What language tells us about the roots of the stone age diet | David Shariatmadari | Comment is free | The Guardian
"With a highly technical understanding of sound change, and collections of thousands upon thousands of cognates, whole words, and then large vocabularies of unrecorded languages have been revealed. Much of the early history of academic linguistics was spent reconstructing European “proto-languages”, our best guesses at earlier forms of familiar linguistic groups. There was proto-Germanic, proto-Romance, proto-Slavic and, eventually, a huge lexicon of proto-Indo-European (PIE) a hypothetical language that represents the common ancestor of everything from Welsh to Romanian, Greek to Sanskrit. This, of course, takes us back quite a long time. Just how long is a matter of fierce debate. In all probability it gets us just a bit beyond the earliest writing, about 6000 years ago. Not quite palaeolithic then, but late neolithic – still stone age, and before, or at the very dawn of agriculture. What did society look like then? How did people live, eat and hunt? Well, let’s look at some of the vocabulary we’ve been able to reconstruct (thanks to the database over at University of Texas, Austin, for these examples)" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

"Rivera had a sketch of the Tread before he even returned to work. It looked like a bit like a bike chain, with interlocking tools. Many Leatherman tools are “wearable,” but not like the Tread. A bracelet made sense: It allowed you to have your tools on you, literally, all the time. It also required each bit, wrench and driver to be tiny, so you wouldn’t encounter trouble from the TSA, Disney guards or anyone else. The longest, sharpest bit—a pointy sim card removal tool—is just under a quarter-inch long, well within TSA regulations.

"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

Disease Networks Show Molecular Connections | Quanta Magazine
"Combining Loscalzo’s molecular networks with Thurner and Barabási’s disease networks would help to create a bridge between correlation and mechanism. If comorbid diseases share overlapping molecular networks, researchers could use the networks to understand the biochemical mechanisms behind them. These two kinds of networks, very different in how they are built, are united only by the idea that data can reveal connections that otherwise would pass unnoticed. But together these networks have the potential to open new doors in the study of disease." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Rivers might constitute just 20 percent of continental water flowing into oceans -- ScienceDaily
"The Amazon, Nile and Mississippi are mighty rivers, but they and all their worldwide brethren might be a relative trickle compared with an unseen torrent below the surface. New research shows that rivers might constitute as little as 20 percent of the water that flows yearly into the Atlantic and Indo-Pacific Oceans from the continents. The rest flows through what is termed the 'subterranean estuary,' which some researchers think supply the lion's share of terrestrial nutrients to the oceans." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
