Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/1)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca   #sharedcircles   #circles   #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:25:36432622658

Could Earth be an exception and life be more common on Moons (and ExoMoons) than Planets?

The tantalizing possibility and studies currently conducted in the field, are discussed by +Elizabeth Howell in her article on Astrobiology Magazine.

"With about 4,000 planet candidates from the Kepler Space Telescope data to analyze so far, astronomers are busy trying to figure out questions about habitability. What size planet could host life? How far from its star does it need to be? What would its atmosphere need to be made of?

Look at our own solar system, however, and there’s a big gap in the information we need. Most of the planets have moons, so surely at least some of the Kepler finds would have them as well. Tracking down these tiny worlds, however, is a challenge.

Apparently Comet 67P C/G Stinks!

"Rotten eggs, horse pee, alcohol and bitter almonds: this is the bouquet of odours you would smell if a comet in deep space could be brought back to Earth, European scientists said on Thursday.

An instrument aboard the probe Rosetta has detected some intriguing chemical signatures from Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko since their rendezvous in deep space in August, they said.

Molecules include ammonia, methane, hydrogen sulphide, hydrogen cyanide and formaldehyde.

"If you could smell the comet, you probably wish that you hadn't," the team said wryly in a blog posted on the European Space Agency (ESA) website."

The time has come to make it happen!

The short film ‘Landing on a Comet – the Rosetta Mission’ begins where the first DLR video on the Rosetta mission left off – on 20 January 2014, the day the Rosetta spacecraft ‘woke up’. At that time, the researchers were anxiously waiting for a signal that would take 45 minutes to reach Earth, despite travelling at the speed of light. In the new video, the participating scientists describe the milestones for the Rosetta mission in 2014 and eagerly look forward to the day of the comet landing.

"(Phys.org) —A recent study paid for by the European Commission, and conducted and published by (the non-peer reviewed site) Science-Metrix, has found that more than half (approximately 55 percent) of peer-reviewed research articles that were originally published between the years 2007-2012 can now be accessed free of charge somewhere on the Internet—a marked increase over last year when papers from just one year reached that mark. Researchers with the study also found that approximately 13 percent of peer-reviewed research papers were published directly to open access sites in 2012. Papers first published behind paywalls make their way to open access sites only after a certain time delay, usually, the researchers report, due to authors archiving their papers themselves."

On 23 October, part of the world will experience a partial Solar Eclipse, where the new moon passes between the Sun and the Earth.

For this event, +Scott Lewis will join +Thad Szabo at Cerritos College in Norwalk California, where he'll be holding his astronomy lecture for the students in the astronomy classes he teaches. 

Joining them will be astrophysicist +Katie Mack all the way from Melbourne, Australia to add in on the discussion about the science of how and why eclipses occur, the safest way to observe them and many more interesting astronomical knowledge!

The Q&A App will be turned on for YouTube and Google+, so feel free to ask us questions as the show goes on. Also, we'll turn on photo-sharing so if you're able to take your own shots of the eclipse, please share them with us!

Mystery on Titan

Scientists using observations performed with the ALMA telescope, discover unexpected and so far unexplained organic molecule concentration patterns in Titan's atmosphere.

"(Phys.org) —While studying the atmosphere on Saturn's moon Titan, scientists discovered intriguing zones of organic molecules unexpectedly shifted away from its north and south poles. These misaligned features seem to defy conventional thinking about Titan's windy atmosphere, which should quickly smear out such off-axis concentrations.

"This is an unexpected and potentially groundbreaking discovery," said Martin Cordiner, an astrochemist working at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and the lead author of a study published online today in the Astrophysical Journal Letters.

Dalmooc course

So these are some very initial observations regarding the first few days of this MOOC I have been attending with EdX.  The program is an hybrid class/social learning experiments organized by EdX and the University of Texas Arlington led by the renowned and extremely knowledgeable Dr. +George Siemens .

The class is a 9 weeks survey of Data Analytics tools and techniques, with a large focus and concentration on the Learning Analytics subset of the field.

The course is subdivided in four segments each one concentrating on a different aspect of data collection and analysis methodologies and techniques.

Dalmooc course

So these are some very initial observations regarding the first few days of this MOOC I have been attending with EdX.  The program is an hybrid class/social learning experiments organized by EdX and the University of Texas Arlington led by the renowned and extremely knowledgeable Dr. +George Siemens .

The class is a 9 weeks survey of Data Analytics tools and techniques, with a large focus and concentration on the Learning Analytics subset of the field.

The course is subdivided in four segments each one concentrating on a different aspect of data collection and analysis methodologies and techniques.

First, we'll be touching on a tool named Tableau; a very effective analytics tool that can also provide the rapid creation of effective graphic data visualizations.

The second part of the course (2 weeks) will touch upon Social Metrics, another interesting aspect on the cutting edge of Educational Data Mining and Learning Analytics.  This segment exploring how to tap and leverage the metrics provided by social media interactions and participations and applications in the learning analytics realm.

The third part will concentrate on more pure data mining and forecasting using RapidMiner.  This is an area with a multitude of applications in numerous fields.

Finally the last part of the course will touch upon Text segmentation and analysis.  This is a particularly challenging sub-field of data analysis in that it attempts to fetch directly from open text inputs and extrapolate patterns and trends.

What makes the course particular interesting is its dual nature of more traditional course with instructors guidance coupled with a completely open social media aspect leveraging and tapping into some of the most popular social media venues such as Twitter, Google Plus and Facebook.  The student are allowed and even encouraged to try both course paths and experiment as much as possible with different learning methodologies.

Overall the course appears fascinating in nature although its very experimental nature makes the interactions challenging especially in these very first few days of the course.

These peculiar aspects makes this course not only unique but also very "meta" in nature.  It is a course that will teach but also learn from its teaching and learning..

So far it has been an interesting first few days and I am looking forward to see where the course will lead us into.

Thanks for reading.

"1.) The anthropic principle doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with the multiverse.

The anthropic principle is equally valid regardless of whether there is a multiverse or not and regardless of what is the underlying explanation for the values of parameters in our theories, if there is one. The reason it is often brought up by multiverse proponents is that they claim the anthropic principle is the only explanation, and that there can be no other selection principle for the parameters that we observe. One then needs to show though that the value of parameters we observe is indeed the only allowable one (or at least the most probable one) if one requires that life is possible."

The Universe exists as it does; we exist in the Universe; therefore, the Universe needed to have such properties that at least allowed for the possibility of us arising. Is that a trivially true statement? Is that simply a useless tautology? Or can something like this actually be informative, and guide us in a useful direction when it comes to our understanding of the Universe? Theoretical physicist Sabine Hossenfelder explores these and other issues, including the multiverse, in this fascinating look into the anthropic principle.___

Google Unveils FIDO U2F Security Key Support

Below is a short summary of the main differentiators between U2F security keys and traditional smart card- and hardware-based authentication devices:

⇨  No need for drivers, client software and middleware – Uses native drivers and built-in support directly into the browser. No installation, no configuration – just works !

⇨  Highly scalable while protecting your privacy - Generates a new set of encryption keys for every service, that is only stored on the specific service it connects to. With this approach no secrets are shared among service providers, and even low-cost security keys can support any number of services.

⇨  Great user experience – To register and authenticate, all it takes is a simple touch of a button!

Google leads $542 million funding of mysterious augmented reality firm Magic Leap

Google is leading a huge $542 million round of funding for the secretive startup Magic Leap, which is said to be working on augmented reality glasses that can create digital objects that appear to exist in the world around you. Though little is known about what Magic Leap is working on, Google is placing a big bet on it: in addition to the funding, Android and Chrome leader Sundar Pichai will join Magic Leap's board, as will Google's corporate development vice-president Don Harrison. The funding is also coming directly from Google itself — not from an investment arm like Google Ventures — all suggesting this is a strategic move to align the two companies and eventually partner when the tech is more mature down the road.

Could Earth be an exception and life be more common on Moons (and ExoMoons) than Planets?

The tantalizing possibility and studies currently conducted in the field, are discussed by +Elizabeth Howell in her article on Astrobiology Magazine.

"With about 4,000 planet candidates from the Kepler Space Telescope data to analyze so far, astronomers are busy trying to figure out questions about habitability. What size planet could host life? How far from its star does it need to be? What would its atmosphere need to be made of?

Look at our own solar system, however, and there’s a big gap in the information we need. Most of the planets have moons, so surely at least some of the Kepler finds would have them as well. Tracking down these tiny worlds, however, is a challenge.

A new paper in the journal Astrobiology, called “Formation, Habitability, and Detection of Extrasolar Moons,” goes over this mostly unexplored field of extrasolar research. The scientists do an extensive literature review of what is supposed about moons beyond the Solar System, and they add intriguing new results."

The high capacity of this new connection will provide U.S. scientists with enhanced access to data at the LHC and other European-based experiments by accelerating the exchange of data sets between institutions in the U.S. and computing facilities in Europe.

Scientist stumbles upon spider as big as a puppy

"(NEWSER) – Strolling through a Guyana rainforest one night, a scientist heard some rustling and thought he'd encountered a furry mammal.

Well, he was right about the furry part.

The creature was actually a Goliath birdeater spider, LiveScience reports — the world's biggest type of spider, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. It can weigh up to 6 ounces. For comparison, National Geographic reports a black widow weighs roughly .035 ounces; that's 170 times lighter."

"The human brain is capable of 10^16 processes per second, which makes it far more powerful than any computer currently in existence. But that doesn't mean our brains don't have major limitations. The lowly calculator can do math thousands of times better than we can, and our memories are often less than useless — plus, we're subject to cognitive biases, those annoying glitches in our thinking that cause us to make questionable decisions and reach erroneous conclusions. Here are a dozen of the most common and pernicious cognitive biases that you need to know about."

Introducing:  The Neglect of Probability (Cognitive Bias)

" The neglect of probability, a type of cognitive bias, is the tendency to completely disregard probability when making a decision under uncertainty and is one simple way in which people regularly violate the normative rules for decision making. Small risks are typically either neglected entirely or hugely overrated, the continuum between the extremes is ignored. The term probability neglect was coined by Cass Sunstein.[1]

There are many related ways in which people violate the normative rules of decision making with regard to probability including the hindsight bias, the neglect of prior base rates effect, and the gambler's fallacy. This bias, though, is notably different from the preceding biases because with this bias, the actor completely disregards probability when deciding, instead of incorrectly using... more »

There are many related ways in which people violate the normative rules of decision making with regard to probability including the hindsight bias, the neglect of prior base rates effect, and the gambler's fallacy. This bias, though, is notably different from the preceding biases because with this bias, the actor completely disregards probability when deciding, instead of incorrectly using probability, as the actor does in the above examples. "
...............................
" Baron (2000) suggests that adults may suffer from the bias as well, especially when it comes to difficult decisions like a medical decision under uncertainty. This bias could make actors drastically violate expected-utility theory in their decision making, especially when a decision must be made in which one possible outcome has a much lower or higher utility but a small probability of occurring (e.g. in medical or gambling situations). In this aspect, the neglect of probability bias is similar to the neglect of prior base rates effect.

In another example of near-total neglect of probability, Rottenstreich and Hsee (2001) found that the typical subject was willing to pay $10 to avoid a 99% chance of a painful electric shock, and $7 to avoid a 1% chance of the same shock. (They suggest that probability is more likely to be neglected when the outcomes are emotion arousing.) "
