CT Scan of 1,000-Year-Old Buddha Sculpture Reveals Mummified Monk Hidden Inside | Colossal
"What looks like a traditional statue of Buddha dating back to the 11th or 12th century was recently revealed to be quite a bit more. A CT scan and endoscopy carried out by the Netherlands-based Drents Museum at the Meander Medical Centre in Amersfoort, showed the ancient reliquary fully encases the mummified remains of a Buddhist master known as Liuquan of the Chinese Meditation School. While it was known beforehand the remains of a person were inside, another startling discovery was made during the scan: where the organs had been removed prior to mummification, researches discovered rolls of paper scraps covered in Chinese writing." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet

New York City Could See 6-Foot Sea Rise, Tripling of Heat Waves by 2100 - Scientific American
"Heat waves and floods caused by climate change could mean disaster for the Big Apple's five boroughs by the end of the century, with sea levels now predicted by a new report to climb by as much as 6 feet by 2100. According to the New York City Panel on Climate Change, an independent body composed of climate scientists, New York could see a 6-foot increase under a worst-case scenario that has been revised from previous estimates that 2 to 4 feet would be the maximum rise." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet

Oklahoma Lawmakers Vote Overwhelmingly To Ban Advanced Placement U.S. History | ThinkProgress - http://thinkprogress.org/educati...
"An Oklahoma legislative committee overwhelmingly voted to ban Advanced Placement U.S. History class, persuaded by the argument that it only teaches students “what is bad about America.” Other lawmakers are seeking a court ruling that would effectively prohibit the teaching of all AP courses in public schools." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"In August last year, the Republican National Committee blasted the Advanced Placement U.S. History test, claiming it “deliberately distorts and/or edits out important historical events.” The RNC said a new framework for the exam “reflects a radically revisionist view of American history that emphasizes negative aspects of our nation’s history while omitting or minimizing positive aspects.” The College Board countered that the framework had not been changed since 2012." - Andrew C (✔)
"Efforts by conservative school board members in Colorado to make the Advanced Placement U.S. History course “more patriotic,” prompted a walk-out by students. Under the changes proposed in Colorado “students would only be taught lessons depicting American heritage in a positive light, and effectively ban any material that could lead to dissent.” In South Carolina conservatives asked... more... - Andrew C (✔)

Researchers from the US and Israel have identified the first-ever example of a creature capable of editing its own genetic makeup in order to blend into its surroundings – the squid.

Icelandic Fox Cubs Sent to Foreign Zoos | Iceland Review - http://icelandreview.com/news...
Icelandic Fox Cubs Sent to Foreign Zoos | Iceland Review
"The Reykjavík Zoo and Family Park recently sent animals to be kept at foreign zoos for the first time. These were the five cubs of fox couple Frosti and Flandra, which were born last spring. After undergoing medical examination and vaccination, one cub was sent to Norway and four to Sweden. The purpose of the transport is to prevent inbreeding and support the Arctic fox stock in Scandinavia, where it has declined significantly, among other reasons because of the invasion of red foxes. It is believed that only around 50 wild Arctic foxes exist in Norway, a press release from the Reykjavík Zoo and Family Park states." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

"The woman is alone. Do you know how rare finding a moment’s peace has been for women throughout human history? If you spent the rest of your days alone in a cottage on a solitary Alp, it would not begin to make up for the years your foremothers spent having to listen to men as a profession.

Re: How Apple's '1984' Ad Was Almost Canceled - http://www.mentalfloss.com/...
"While one can quibble as to whether this is truly on the level of a "Big Brother" issue, there's another point to be made - Apple hasn't changed the way that it acts. If you want to talk about closed environments, look at the original Macintosh. Unlike other computers that allowed expansion slots or even alternate operating systems, the Mac had none of that. One can argue that the Mac was an example of planned obsolescence, undercutting the rival Lisa product (and yes, due to the nature of bureaucratic organizations, the Lisa - and the Apple II - were competitors to the Mac) and eventually killing it. Perpetual war? See above. Remember that the symbol of the Macintosh team was a pirate flag (the Mac team vs. the rest of Apple), and the impetus for the ad itself was Jobs' brilliant positioning of Apple as an underdog fighting IBM. The one thing that I'll grant you is that the original Mac did not represent an "ever-expanding imposition into daily lives." Because of the philosophy at..." - John E. Bredehoft

What neuroscience is learning from code-breakers and thieves | NAUTILUS http://nautil.us/issue...
2015-02-10_002235.jpg
"It’s hard to imagine an encryption machine more sophisticated than the human brain. This three-pound blob of tissue holds an estimated 86 billion neurons, cells that rapidly fire electrical pulses in split-second response to whatever stimuli our bodies encounter in the external environment. Each neuron, in turn, has thousands of spindly branches that reach out to nodes, called synapses, which transmit those electrical messages to other cells. Somehow the brain interprets this impossibly noisy code, allowing us to effectively respond to an ever-changing world. (...) The Penn scientists have taken their cues from a 73-year-old algorithm that British code-breaker Alan Turing used to read secret German messages during World War II, and a mathematical sequence more famously used to break into digital keypad locks on cars. “Neurons extract information from the world and put it in code,” says Joshua Gold, an associate professor of neuroscience at the University of Pennsylvania. “There’s got... more... - Amira
"It turns out to be a great insight for how the brain assembles evidence to make decisions,” Shadlen says.
