Come join this Hangout On Air, hosted by @103430512218037500671 of @107538622122068192565 to see the latest - and coolest - device for underwater exploration.* To study the behavior of fishes and invertebrates that live in the oceans' depths, scientists need to observe and interact with these animals in their habitats. But how? Advanced techniques allow for diving to several hundred feet, but human physiology sets practical limits for the type of work and amount of time at that depth. The Exosuit, the newest generation of atmospheric diving systems (ADS), keeps the pilot protected from the effects of pressure and will allow a trained pilot to perform delicate work at depths of up to 1,000 feet (305 meters) for hours. Together with a remotely operated vehicle (ROV), the Exosuit will provide new ways for scientists to observe, photograph, and collect marine life in areas that are otherwise difficult to explore. Live from the @103316048524269527650, come join this Google Science Fair 2014 Hangout On Air to see the the only Exosuit currently in existence. You'll hear how it will be used in deep-dive research this coming summer, along with its partner ROV (remotely operated vehicle).

I really wonder about people who spam communities with unrelated content. Are they just unaware that they're posting to a community instead of to the public or are they just posting their content wherever they can? I just saw a community in which someone had posted photos of their rafting trip. It was not an outdoor adventure community.

I didn't get into the show until the second season but loved it.

On this day:
At 5th July of 1989, the first episode of the popular sitcom 'Seinfeld' aired on NBC.

'Seinfeld' is an American television sitcom that originally ran for nine seasons on NBC from July 5, 1989, to May 14, 1998. It was created by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld, the latter starring as a fictionalized version of himself.

Brilliantly unconventional, imaginatively off-the-wall, broadly funny sitcom is one that you'll probably never forget. 'Seinfeld' is a gem, a sitcom that deviates from the norm and uses sly, uncanny methods to tell run-of-the-mill stories. The show is famous for being about nothing, but in reality it's about everything.

'Seinfeld' cleared the way for finding humor in a television show outside of the situation but just in the banter between characters, who chatter about inane topics with pitch-perfect delivery, or having episodes derived out of the minutiae of everyday life. This is a technique key to the success of single-camera comedies such as 'The Office', 'Curb Your Enthusiasm', and 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia', where the situation is often secondary to the banter between characters.

It also showed self-parody in an intelligent way, clearly poking fun at the status of the show, particularly in later seasons, where they often made references to the show and it's lack of popularity in earlier seasons. Self-parody is behind many shows such as 'Arrested Development' and 'Scrubs', though often in a lesser extent than in those shows.

Jerry Seinfeld played himself and surrounded himself with an ex-girlfriend (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), a childhood friend (Jason Alexander), and a neighbor (Michael Richards). Four terrific actors with incredible chemistry among them, the four careened through 9 seasons of total mayhem. Sex, religion, politics, old age, political correctness, race, relationships, homosexuality, Los Angeles...you name it, they harpooned it.

Jerry Seinfeld, the star of the show, while he can't act, he still has hilarious reactions to things and has funny lines. His profession on the show is a comedian.

Jason Alexander plays George Costanza, Jerry's friend he met when in high school. He is the most self involved character, and really only cares about himself which makes his character funny. For seasons 1 and 2 he was a real estate agent, and from the end of season 5 to season 8 he worked for the New York Yankees. In season 5 he lived with his parents. Season 7 George was engaged. If ever there was a very odd sexual situation, it was usually George who was placed in it.

Julia Louis Dreyfuss played Elaine Benes. Elaine, like George, is very self involved. Many of her plots and sub-plots involved her at Pendant Publishing and Peterman, her jobs. She went out with Jerry before the show started.

Michael Richards plays Cosmo Kramer. Kramer would often be the one who agonizes someone else to get in trouble. He is self employed and often had the sub-plot that tied the other plots together. He is known for his over the top reactions to everything.

Along with having a great main cast, the reccurring cast was also great. Wayne Knight played Newman, a heavy set mailman who lived in Jerry and Kramer's building. Jerry Stiller and Estelle Harris played George's extremely annoying, but hilarious parents. Barney Martin and Liz Sheridan played Jerry's parents who lived down in Florida. Heidi Sweissberg played George's girlfriend/fiancée Susan. John O' Hurley played Elaine's boss from the end of season 6 to season 9, and spoke in a hilarious old time dialect. and Patrick Warburton played Elaine's on again off again boyfriend David Puddy.

Although by the later seasons the show had gotten more wacky and bizarre, the quality of the comedy never dipped in all it's nine seasons. Even when they found themselves in the most ludicrous situations, you could always strangely identify with the characters. Other shows are funny, but 'Seinfeld' was naturally funny, the lines never seemed forced and the situations blended together seamlessly.

Where shows like 'Cheers' and 'Friends' (even 'Frasier') rely almost entirely on one liners and emotions, Seinfeld's characters had practically no emotions (George once pulls the plug on a hospital patient's drip, and pretends to be disabled to use the spacious disabled bathroom) and the one liners were all part of the conversation.

It really is difficult to say anything negative about 'Seinfeld', there's no episode where you could say the writers weren't trying or had given up, even in it's last season the show performed the ambitious "Backwards episode" where the story finished at the beginning and started at the end. Sometimes you couldn't see where the storylines tied up at the end, you just had to look a bit harder for the genius, a reason why most episodes require a second viewing.

'Seinfeld' has received awards and nominations in various categories throughout the mid-1990s. TV Guide has named it the greatest show of all time. It was awarded the Emmy for "Outstanding Comedy Series" in 1993, Golden Globe Award for "Best TV-Series (Comedy)" in 1994 and Screen Actors Guild Award for "Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series" in 1995, 1997 and 1998.

Apart from these, the show was also nominated for an Emmy award from 1992 to 1998 for "Outstanding Comedy series", Golden Globe award from 1994 to 1998 for "Best TV-Series (Comedy)", and Screen Actors Guild Award for "Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series" from 1995 to 1998. In 2013, TV Guide ranked Seinfeld as the greatest TV show of all time.

There are very few shows that could match the cleverness, satire, characterizations, and plot development of "Seinfeld". Believe it or not, you can watch "Seinfeld" episodes over and over again and they never get boring!

If you grew up being taught that whenever your beliefs seem logically contradictory you should just trust that God knows more than you do and it all works out somehow, you learn to accept these inconsistencies as a normal part of life and you learn to quit trying to reconcile them.

It is fascinating to watch people react to contradictions in their faith and conduct. Now they have even retconned Jesus to suit their political aims.

So, collective mind of the internet, how difficult is it to relocate a thermostat for an HVAC system? In my new rental home the thermostat is simply not in an optimal place for accurate temperature readings. It is significantly warmer at the thermostat than it is in the rest of the house. A better location for the thermostat would be approximately 6 feet away on the same wall. Should I pester my landlord to move it, move it myself, or just resolve myself to the idea that the thermostat will always read hotter than the temperature elsewhere in the house?

So the new internet plan gives us 1TB of data consumption per month. Considering I never went over the 300GB cap on the old plan, I might have a tough time exceeding this one. I'd have to be streaming constantly on multiple platforms, or downloading some really huge files.

When estimating travel time I have a few general rules. For trips under 30 minutes I typically double the amount of time the GPS tells me or the time it "normally" takes when I'm quoting an arrival time to someone else. Thus that 10-minute trip is quoted at 20 minutes. It gives me wiggle room in case of traffic delays, difficulty finding a parking space, or whatever. For trips of 30-60 minutes I typically add an extra 15 minutes to my travel time. While more things can go wrong on a slightly longer trip there are also more options for dealing with it by taking alternate routes and such. For trips of greater than 1 hour I add an extra 15 minutes per hour. This means that 3-hour trip is quoted as 3 hours and 45 minutes. This gives time to deal with traffic problems and allows for gas, food, and restroom stops. All of this assumes clear weather conditions and daytime travel. For inclement weather... more »

When estimating travel time I have a few general rules. For trips under 30 minutes I typically double the amount of time the GPS tells me or the time it "normally" takes when I'm quoting an arrival time to someone else. Thus that 10-minute trip is quoted at 20 minutes. It gives me wiggle room in case of traffic delays, difficulty finding a parking space, or whatever. For trips of 30-60 minutes I typically add an extra 15 minutes to my travel time. While more things can go wrong on a slightly longer trip there are also more options for dealing with it by taking alternate routes and such. For trips of greater than 1 hour I add an extra 15 minutes per hour. This means that 3-hour trip is quoted as 3 hours and 45 minutes. This gives time to deal with traffic problems and allows for gas, food, and restroom stops. All of this assumes clear weather conditions and daytime travel. For inclement weather I add an extra 5 minutes per 15 minutes of my estimated time. I also add another 5 minutes per hour for night travel. 

What are your rules for estimating travel time?___

They were small-town girls from New Jersey who had been hired by a local factory to paint the clock faces of luminous watches, the latest new army gadget used by American soldiers. The women were told that the glow-in-the-dark radioactive paint was harmless, and so they painted 250 dials a day, licking their brushes every few strokes with their lips and tongue to give them a fine point.

But the most baffling part about this story is not the fact that the general public had no idea that radium was so dangerous, but the fact that some people most certainly did! And yet, they sat back and watched as everyone around them was poisoning themselves.
