Two ancient Mayan cities found in Mexican jungle
"MEXICO CITY, Aug 22 (Reuters) - Archaeologists have found two ancient Mayan cities hidden in the jungle of southeastern Mexico, and the lead researcher says he believes there are "dozens" more to be found in the region. Ivan Sprajc, associate professor at the Research Center of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts, said his team found the ancient cities of Lagunita and Tamchen on the Yucatan peninsula in April by examining aerial photographs of the region. Sprajc said the two cities reached their heyday in the Late and Terminal Classic periods (600-1000 AD). At each site, researchers found palace-like buildings, pyramids and plazas. One of the pyramids is almost 20 meters (65 feet) high. They also found a facade featuring a monster-mouth doorway, which probably marked one of the main entrances to the center of the city. Photographs from the sites showed stone pyramids jutting out from beneath dense foliage." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
I love that we can still discover ancient cities. - Stephen Mack
And lost tribes. - Todd Hoff
Very interesting, having recently visited Chichen Itza and Coba in the Yucatan. - Son of Groucho

A new assessment from Europe's CryoSat spacecraft shows Greenland to be losing about 375 cu km of ice each year. Added to the discharges coming from Antarctica, it means Earth's two big ice sheets are now dumping roughly 500 cu km of ice in the oceans annually. "The contribution of both ice sheets together to sea level rise has doubled since 2009," said Angelika Humbert from Germany's Alfred Wegener Institute. "To us, that's an incredible number," she told BBC News. - Halil from Bookmarklet

Have you fulfilled your childhood dream of getting a syndrome named after you? - sglassme
Not yet...I think for Christmas this year everyone is getting a DNA test. I want to see what your guys' genomes look like. The new doctor is an interesting mix of hard core cutting edge medical technology and woo woo. In the middle of reviewing my genetic tests she recommended a lady in Hebron that does colonics. I was like, "I thought we stopped treating mental illness with enemas in the 19th century...." - Sarah G.

Email could never be invented today. All new successful comm platforms are about proprietary products that own the customer relationship.
To be fair email was an answer to a problem posed by the poor disconnected networks of the day. We have different systems today because the technology allows it. The rest is just greed. - Todd Hoff
But as long as you own the email addresses used by your customers, along with their entire address book, you own the relationships. - April Russo

The meanderiness of a river, its Stølum number, is... - Maths and Science blog- matthen
"The meanderiness of a river, its Stølum number, is defined as the length the water travels from source to finish (blue curve) divided by the direct distance (red line).  This can change chaotically as a river changes coarse, forming Ox bow lakes. The ratio is often found to converge to (but rarely exceed) 3.14, roughly pi." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
(animated gif - click through to see) - Amit Patel
Why would this converge to pi?! - Amit Patel
I guess the courses of rivers tend to approximate alternating half-circles with the straight-line distance as the diameter? - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Hm, that makes sense! :) - Amit Patel

Memories of errors foster faster learning -- ScienceDaily - http://www.sciencedaily.com/release...
Memories of errors foster faster learning -- ScienceDaily
"Using a deceptively simple set of experiments, researchers have learned why people learn an identical or similar task faster the second, third and subsequent time around. The reason: They are aided not only by memories of how to perform the task, but also by memories of the errors made the first time." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
""In learning a new motor task, there appear to be two processes happening at once," says Reza Shadmehr, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. "One is the learning of the motor commands in the task, and the other is critiquing the learning, much the way a 'coach' behaves. Learning the next similar task goes... more... - Maitani
"The surprise finding in the current study, described in Science Express on Aug. 14, is that not only do such errors train the brain to better perform a specific task, but they also teach it how to learn faster from errors, even when those errors are encountered in a completely different task. In this way, the brain can generalize from one task to another by keeping a memory of the errors." - Maitani
I still can't see how the experiment they describe leads to the conclusions posed in the paper. - Maitani
Perhaps in over simplifying, but I didn't need science to know this. - MoTO: Team Marina from Android
What they describe are simple experiences everyone knows, and I can't find anything unexpected in the experiment. Why I was interested in this, was the assertion that "The surprise finding in the current study, described in Science Express on Aug. 14, is that not only do such errors train the brain to better perform a specific task, but they also teach it how to learn faster from... more... - Maitani

"This week I traveled to northeast China to check out a bitcoin mining operation. After being received at the airport, my contact drove me for nearly an hour to a part of the country more remote than I was expecting. This was my first time checking out a mining operation of this size, so I don’t really know what I was expecting, but I was definitely surprised by how off the beaten path it was." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
Not only is this insane, but the author has no realization that it is insane, and his paean to libertarianism and capitalism at the end sounds like cloud cuckoo talk. Gold is irrational but at least it can be a paperweight. Paper money is irrational but at least you can wipe your ass with it. Bitcoin is literally nothing physical, the most irrational currency of all, and yet here's an operation spending $60k a month in electricity to generate irrational wealth. - Stephen Mack
Ain't humans strange? - Son of Groucho
To be fair, most of our government-backed currency is also stored as bits in computers. But the "government-backed" part is the thing. - Victor Ganata
Money is just one of those things not to think too deeply about. Otherwise the data streams collapse. - Todd Hoff
I just think about the resources used up to mine bit coins. It's so arbitrary. In my head it's equivalent to if tomorrow we declared that alligator teeth were worth millions apiece and people began tearing apart swamps. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Not as scalable :-) - Todd Hoff
Well, that is kind of how the stock market and real estate and consumerism works…. :D - Victor Ganata from iPhone
