I Was An Extra On The Sleepy Hollow Set, And Here's What I Learned
"Action! The AD walks up behind my co-visitors, leans in DURING THE SCENE and whispers, "OK after he's done talking, just walk in front of the camera." I instinctually decline. He smiles and says, "OK, now." The silent club becomes a reverberating nightmare echo chamber of my shoes clomping around. I walk past the two actors mid-scene with a look that my cat gives when she's leaning back to bite me. "Maybe you'll be a wipe," someone suggests. I'm sorry, America." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
Hah that was hilarious. "Action! Another journalist sits a few spaces down the bar from me, this clever devil has developed cues and interactions with other extras far beyond my own. His character mutely gestures to the lovely co-ed at the bar, asking her if she'd like a drink. She declines. He continues this pantomime every, single, take. It's the Groundhog Day of rejection.

Sept. 17, 1849: Harriet Tubman Attempts to Escape From Slavery
 
On this day in 1849, American abolitionist Harriet Tubman escaped from slavery. She escaped alongside her brothers, Ben and Henry, who forced her to turn back with them after they had second thoughts.
 
Tubman ran away again shortly afterward without her brothers, this time successfully, using the Underground Railroad as her escape route to the North.
 
The Underground Railroad was a lifeline for slaves escaping to freedom, and Harriet Tubman became undoubtedly one of its most famous “conductors.”
 
PBS Black Culture Connection invites you to learn 10 interesting facts about Harriet Tubman.

Our water use is down 40% year over year, due in part to going with Rachio for our smart sprinkler system. We're also down about 60% from two years ago. More to do, but the right direction. http://blog.louisgray.com/2014...

We went 54k gallons over a 60 day period in 2012 to 24k this year. Our kids still take too many baths, and we do too much laundry, but the trajectory is good. - Louis Gray
We too have been cutting back on water usage. In completely unrelated news, we had to have 17 trees taken out this summer. :( Oh, wait, that's not completely unrelated, is it? :( - Amit Patel
Our well is producing a few gallons a day per person. Around here the water truckers have been overwhelmed with business since june as wells have run dry. We're using bottled water and eating off paper plates. #prayforrain #sacrificepeopleforrain - Todd Hoff
Looking at the data makes me feel like we're still using a ton of water, but unless we never bathe or wash clothes, we're hard pressed to take it dramatically lower. - Louis Gray
That's 12K gallons a month? That's 400 gallons a day. With 4 people that's 100 gallons per person per day. Which is average. So that's very good progress. Good work. Using no water landscaping is a good next step. That will be coming soon enough for everyone. Without better monitoring data it's hard to go that next step in reducing usage. Here are some more water savings tips: http://friendfeed.com/toddh.... - Todd Hoff

Life Is Random: Biologists now realize that “nature vs. nurture” misses the importance of noise http://tm.durusau.net/?p=56319
"Is our behavior determined by genetics, or are we products of our environments? What matters more for the development of living things—internal factors or external ones? Biologists have been hotly debating these questions since shortly after the publication of Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection. Charles Darwin’s half-cousin Francis Galton was the first to try to understand this interplay between “nature and nurture” (a phrase he coined) by studying the development of twins." - Maitani

Here's Why Longsword Fighting Is Now A Popular Sport
"If you love sword battles in your fantasy films, then this emerging sport may be perfect for you. Called longsword fighting, it's a revival of a once-forgotten ancient skill. There's been a renewed interest in what enthusiasts call historical European martial arts, or HEMA. It includes such things as grappling and several types of swordfighting. But it's the longsword that's getting much of the attention." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Warmest August on Record, Global Warming Continues – Greg Laden's Blog - http://scienceblogs.com/greglad...
"According to data just updated by NASA, last August was the warmest August for the entire instrumental data record, which begins in 1881. This has been something of a mixed year but overall warm. Of the 134 years for which there are data, the coolest month this year so far was February, at 17th place, with July also being cool, at 11th place. Keep in mind this is over 134 years. For the months of January through August, there are no one-digit ranks (1 through 8) prior to 1989, inclusively, and you don’t really start getting consistent “top ten” ranks until 1998." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
Hahahaha now who has to use obscure blogs ? Global August 2014 Report: http://nsstc.uah.edu/climate/ - Eric Logan
This story is all over the Internet: [Google News; global warming august 2014 https://www.google.com/search...] - Sean McBride
I don't care where it's reported. The raw data says it's BS. RSS. http://data.remss.com/msu... - Eric Logan
Just out of curiosity which entry on your search parameter meets your previously stated criteria as reputable science publications. Think Progress ? You should just take Greg's word for it source watcher. LMAO. Greg Laden is a biological anthropologist and science communicator. His research has covered North American prehistoric and historic archaeology and African archaeology and human ecology. He is an OpenSource and OpenAccess advocate. - Eric Logan
This new story (it's less than a few hours old) has been reported so far in Huffington Post, Seattle Weekly, Climate Central, AccuWeather and Think Progress. I took a quick glance at reader comments for informed pushback -- haven't noticed any yet. I am waiting to see how the leading scientific publications cover it over the next few days and weeks. - Sean McBride
Give it a few years till they homogenize historical raw data. ;) - Eric Logan from FFHound!
Haha. Gavin Schmidt has picked up the baton for James Hansen. He took 12 days longer than everyone else and runs counter to the others, but there you have it. GISS http://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp... - Eric Logan
# Eric Logan quotes on climate science 1. Hahahaha 2. LMAO 3. Haha - Sean McBride
Meanwhile, the latest reporting on this story: https://www.google.com/search... - Sean McBride
It's just as funny today as it was yesterday and it's a full 1/2 degree higher than any other data set. your trusted sources method are still conspicuously absent. "This result is apparently at odds with satellite measurements of the global tropospheric temperature calculated by the University of Alabama in Huntsville and by US firm remote Sensing Systems. Both these data sets showed... more... - Eric Logan
The divergence between the data sets is larger than the observed warming during the satellite era "pre pause" in other words the 1979-98 average. Truly laughable. - Eric Logan from FFHound!
Enrique está perdido en la niebla. - Sean McBride
Sean, creo que hemos jugado a este juego antes. - Eric Logan
Also Sean it's a moot point because today @climateofgavin just adjusted it down on GISS so that August 2014 is no longer the hottest even according to NASA. Pure comedy. It's + .68 anomaly today. http://data.giss.nasa.gov/cgi-bin... - Eric Logan from FFHound!
Still looking for informed pushback on this story: https://www.google.com/search... - Sean McBride
Where are your reputable science links ? Mission accomplished. The echo chamber repeats information like it's factual the facts are on this thread. The scientific pushback got @climateofgavin to adjust the GISS by .02 which was enough to make it the hottest August according to GISS for a day. It's still .49 divergence from the other data sets. Winter is coming and it's an El Niño year. - Eric Logan from FFHound!
Historically UAH runs hotter than GISS during El Niño years which makes the divergence odder. Google it for yourself. - Eric Logan from FFHound!
My mind works differently than yours, Eric -- I am looking for informed discussion on this latest datapoint which places it in the context of *all* relevant datapoints. That conversation should begin to develop over the next few weeks. - Sean McBride

One planet, one language: Science fiction versus earth linguistic diversity
In fact, as you look at language-users in science fiction, from the Kzinti of Larry Niven's Known Space to the bugs of Starship Troopers to all the aliens in Star Wars and beyond, though they may command a vast space-faring empire across many cubic light years of territory and billions if not billions of billions of sapient speaking beings, they never seem to command more than a handful of languages. By contrast, on our lone watery rock in a measly little corner of the galaxy, we Earthlings have thousands of languages with perhaps tens of thousands of dialects . Looks like sci-fi writers have really screwed up, huh? - Halil from Bookmarklet
Our only path to space is if we unify on Esperanto. - Stephen Mack
The other explanation is that every spacefaring species in existence are descended from genocidal maniacs who obliterated every other culture on their planet and are now taking their mass murdering ways to the stars ;) - Victor Ganata
One thing this post makes me think of is the fact that we might not even recognize extraterrestrial species if they literally bit us in the face. I mean, what if they're already here, we just lack the mental constructs and sensory apparatus to perceive them? :D - Victor Ganata
So, you mean that they are out of phase to our sensory/mental perceptions? That sounds plausible, aliens out of phase has been a running theme in a few Trekkie episodes. - Halil
Not even necessarily requiring advanced/exotic physics, but just existing outside our own expectations of what life should be. Just considering how long it has taken to learn about some terrestrial species that have been around for billions of years all around us like bacteria and archaea. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
It still cracks me up that Futurama ran with the fact that a Frenchman like Jean-Luc Picard spoke English and had an English accent and concluded that French was no longer a living language. - Victor Ganata
