Huh. I've never seen it do that. - Jennifer Dittrich

Merlin Bird ID app – Instant Bird Identification Help for 350 North American birds
New bird mobile app looks promising — they narrow down candidate birds based on size and color and behavior (which you enter) and location and season (automatic). I've used Petersen and iBird and am happy with neither; I'll try this one. - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
I tried it out, and I'm quite happy with it so far. It seems much nicer for casual birdwatchers like me, and I'm guessing it's not for birdwatching geeks. - Amit Patel

Nazis, shoddy science, and the climate contrarian credibility gap | Dana Nuccitelli | Environment | theguardian.com
"Because the pool of climate experts who dispute that humans are the primary cause of global warming is so small, representing just 2 to 4 percent of climate scientists, climate contrarians often reference the same few contrarian scientists. Two such examples are Roy Spencer and John Christy of the University of Alabama at Huntsville (UAH), both of whom have testified before US Congress several times, and are often interviewed and quoted in the conservative media." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"In their opinion piece, Christy and McNider present a graph that's supposed to prove their argument that climate models have overestimated global warming. However, rather than compare models and observations of global surface temperature, which are of the greatest importance for those of us living on the Earth's surface, they instead show temperature data from higher up in the atmosphere, the temperature of the mid-troposphere (TMT)." - Sean McBride
"Spencer, Christy, and McNider offer perfect examples of what John Kerry was criticizing – shoddy, biased science being treated on equal footing with solid mainstream science. In reality, there should be an immense credibility gap between the climate contrarians who have been consistently wrong and who deny the inconvenient data, and the mainstream climate scientists whose positions are... more... - Sean McBride

My beautiful daughter made this picture collage for me today.

She is beautiful, Eric. Looks like your wife. - MRW_8
Thanks, MRW. She looks a lot like me ex wife actually. My daughter got married last year so now I have a son in law also. My son is getting married on July 5th. I suspect I may join the ranks of Grandpa in the next few years. - Eric Logan
The upper left looks like the woman with you in Italy. That's not the mother? - MRW_8
Nope. Had my daughter in college divorced her mom 18 years ago. Daughter came to live with me when she was 16 and introduced me to my current girlfriend that I took to Italy after she met her. - Eric Logan

LISTEN: In Private Speech, Dick Cheney Talks Bombing Iran and GOP Donors Applaud | Mother Jones
"What do former Vice President Dick Cheney, billionaire mega-donor Sheldon Adelson, and Republican activists and funders talk about—and applaud—when they're behind closed doors at a Las Vegas hotel? Bombing Iran." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"This past weekend, the Republican Jewish Coalition held its spring leadership meeting at Adelson's Venetian hotel, where several possible 2016 contenders, including ex-Governor Jeb Bush and current Governors Chris Christie, Scott Walker, and John Kasich, showed up to kiss the ring of the casino magnate, who's looking to bankroll a viable Republican presidential candidate. Though the... more... - Sean McBride
Top comment: "Everybody except Cheney has figured out that it was US meddling and favoritism in the Middle East that caused 9/11, but after participating in one of the most disastrous US administrations, this sociopathic individual smiles his crooked smile and proposes another war to fix America's problems. He critiques the President who has been obliged to spend most of his time... more... - Sean McBride

Life inside the densest place on earth: Photos of Kowloon Walled City - CNN.com
Picture a colossal empire of little houses stacked on top of each other. Visualize them connected by staircases snaking under dangling wires, through corridors so dark even police were rumored to be afraid of them. Now picture 33,000 people living there, within the space of one city block. That was Kowloon Walled City, once considered the densest settlement on earth. - Steve C from Bookmarklet
""You don't want to romanticize a slum, you know. Because it was that. But it was much more than that. The Walled City was a kind of architectural touchstone in terms of what a city can be -- unplanned, self-generated, unregulated. It was vital and vibrant and every part of it was being used."" - Steve C

Last month I paid off my "big" credit card. Today I paid off my Amazon card, and thanks to the Kindle credits, I won't be paying for this month's books, so I AM DEBT-FREE AT LAST!!
That's awesome - Shevonne
At least until the next big expense. I did the "snowball" thing. I paid off my car just when I retired, and used the erstwhile car payment to pay down my credit card. I'm lucky that I already own my house and now my car. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Congratulations!!! Whatta a huge thing to accomplish. - Lnorigb
It wasn't easy. I started by not using the oddball store and gas cards I had. Paid them off in turn and was left with one card with the biggest credit limit, which really piled up what with a new furnace among other things. Got an Amazon card for online expenses. Now I just have monthly expenses on the online card, plus All Those Books. Still have the "big" card but I hope to be able to pay back anything I use that for in the future. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
you are an inspiration! kudos! - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
thats great.. being debt free" - Peter Dawson
m9m: I assume the One Big Card pays 1% (or 1.5%) cash back? If not, get one that does...at this point you should have a great credit rating. Yes, being wholly debt free is wonderful. - Walt Crawford

How We Retrieve Memories - Brain Basics #1 - Scientific American - http://www.scientificamerican.com/video...
"Have you ever had a moment of temporary amnesia when you can't recall a certain word or someone's name? That's because your brain wasn't able to recreate the pattern of activity that occurred when the memory was stored. Learn more in the first of a series of videos from Scientific American MIND." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
I hope I'll manage to watch at least part of the video. - Maitani
I've also read as you get older this occurs not because of dementia, because you just know too much stuff. It becomes hard to retrieve everything efficiently. - Todd Hoff
Ima go with that, Todd. It's like that guy on Charlie Rose says... what was his name anyway? I can picture him... I've read several of his books... I almost had it just then... ach... it's gone. Oh well. #JustKidding #EricKandel - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

Tired of Not Having a Grocery Store, Village Engineer Invents a Vending Machine | Adweek
"The town of Clifton in central England hasn't had a grocery store for almost 15 years, so a local engineer invented a giant vending machine that dispenses milk, eggs, bread, toiletries, pet food and even umbrellas for the village. Refrigerated compartments keep perishables cool and a "basket" system allows bottles and egg cartons to be dispensed without breaking or spillage. Located in a parking lot, the unit's brick motif and awning make it look somewhat like a traditional English village shop. It takes cash and credit cards and boasts various security features (alarms and such). Creator Peter Fox hopes the machine is the first of many. It carries no advertising, but that's probably just a matter of time. Via Design Taxi and Daily Mail." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
I'm not sure "invents" is the right word. I saw this type of product in a Swiss train station in 98 and I know they had them in Japan before then. - Soup in a TARDIS
If they're not English-speaking, then it doesn't count. I think that's how it works. - Jessie

This is how households should work. Every house has a vending machine that is filled by 3rd party jobbers. When you want something you just buy it from the machine and it automatically gets refilled. - Todd Hoff

"A fox in the hen house is usually a recipe for disaster. But having crept into a coop while its eight residents were pecking about outside, this cunning customer just curled up on a nest of their eggs for a nap. Maybe he was tired and it was the closest thing he could find to a feather bed, or perhaps he was slyly dreaming of a chicken omelette for tea." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

I do. If they see me, they'll usually invite me into the gardens for more pictures and discussions. Some give cuttings and plants, too. Ironically, for my job, I get yelled at by people whose homes I'm NOT photographing. - Anika
