A politician who is consistent in his stands - this has to be one of the rarest kind of people to exist, I think.

via +Irreverent Monk 

This is a photo of a 20-year-old Bernie Sanders leading students in a multi-week sit-in to oppose segregation in off-campus housing owned by the University of Chicago.

On a frigid Tuesday afternoon in January, 1962 the 20-year-old from Brooklyn stood on the steps of University of Chicago administration building and railed in the wind against the college’s housing segregation policy. “We feel it is an intolerable situation, when Negro and white students of the university cannot live together in university owned apartments,” the young bespectacled student told the few-dozen classmates gathered there. Then he led them into the building in protest, and camped the night outside the president’s office. It was Chicago’s first civil rights sit-in.  ( from http://goo.gl/gzZaFP )

This is commitment in action, and his commitment has been ongoing for 50 years.    http://goo.gl/yvLuSJ

Too cool. via +Casey McKinnon 

Electron microscope video of phonograph needle in an LP groove. About 1/400 actual speed. Captured via Tektronix MDO3000 oscilloscope.

This video was made via the "stop motion" animation technique.  I moved the LP by 50 microns at a time, and captured a frame after each move. The setup inside the microscope was made possible by the fact that there are two separate stages with their own motion controls. I fixed the needle to one stage and the LP to the other so that I could get both parts into the frame at a good angle.___Too cool. via +Casey McKinnon

Confession time: The thing about ADHD is that I'm not only easily distractable, but I also have a poor opinion of time. As a general rule, I hate time. I have trouble thinking about my future as well as my past. The inability of maintaining continuity is an impairing feature, I think.

But the upside is sometimes, I have great ideas, temporary moments of great insight. In ADHD speak this is called hyperfocus. It usually happens after I ingest a good cup of coffee. I usually write them in my Evernote. I don't generally follow up on these ideas, because you know, continuity.

If I had problems to sleep, imagining situations where I have a lot of power makes me feel good, it has a calming effect. I dream about taking control of the world at large either through financial means or physical means. Robots always play a big part. The threshold that I need to reach is artificial intelligence with powerful computation abilities, accurate pattern recognition and sensory abilities beyond human capabilities. Wrong, this are not actually leaps that necessitates the use of the word 'threshold'. They only require incremental improvements to current technologies. Massive improvements, but still incremental. The threshold that is required is near limitless power generation - the robot should not be constricted by limited power capacities. And the amount of energy should be very high, because the second thing they need to do is to be able to convert some of this energy to mass - creating certain desirable elements that leads to the ability to continuously fabricate materials to assist in the production of more robots.

My vision of near limitless power generation is compact fusion reactors - think Iron Man. But there is a fallacy here. The generation of energy through fusion reactions involve the conversion of mass to energy, mass in this case refers to hydrogen atoms - the lightest element in the periodic table. If the robots were also required to use the energy to create things - essentially converting the energy back to mass - and the elements that needs to be created are mostly metals, forget that, any elements that needs to be created will be actually heavier than hydrogen. Heavier - more mass. And they have to be energy loss in both the conversions - this means a humongous amount of hydrogen is needed in the first place. It is not exactly a feasible idea. Assuming theoretically that there is 0% energy loss (which is impossible), the mass of hydrogen required will be the same with the mass of other elements produced. Lets say that the main material for the exoskeleton of the robots is titanium. Ok that is just from popular conception of a strong metal. After consulting Wolfram Alpha (I just paid for the app), the strongest metal by bulk modulus will be rhodium. The atomic weight of rhodium is 102.91, while the atomic weight of hydrogen will be 1.00.

While the same amount of mass will be produced, the vast difference is the amount of volume that the same amount of mass will occupy. 1kg of Rhodium will have a volume of 80.3 mL, while the same mass of hydrogen gas will have a volume 1.11 x 10 to the power of 7 mL. That means the same mass of hydrogen takes 138000 (approx.) times more volume.

The current consensus in fusion generation is if a sustainable generation is feasible, the hydrogen will have be sourced from sea water, i.e the reactor will need to be located by the sea. Now this is obviously not possible to the portable fusion reactors that will be used in my robots. The next obvious solution is to obtain the hydrogen from air. Hydrogen constitutes 5x10^-5 % of the atmosphere. That is not actually much. Given that Wolfram Alpha advises me that the total volume of earth's atmosphere is 3x10^30 mililiters; lets calculate how much hydrogen there actually is. There is 1.5x10^24 mL of hydrogen in the atmosphere. Again, assuming 100% conversion to rhodium, this will produce 1.087x10^19 mL of Rhodium, ok, that is a lot. This will constitute 1.35x10^17 kg. This, with a certain margin of error (that comes from the rounding of values in my calculation up to two decimal values) will represent the maximum possible value for the mass of rhodium that can be produced.

But I will never get this amount because I have used a lot of assumptions to make the calculation more convenient.

First, a 100% conversion will never happen. The energy produced from the fusion reaction is not going to be used for reconversion to mass alone. A considerable amount will be used for motor movement, and to sustain the computational processes within the robot. Do not forget weaponry either. That will also require a lot of energy. Second, energy loss will occur in every step of the way. After all the energy use and also losses, the energy proportioned to be converted to mass will not be used to produce rhodium alone, other elements will also be necessary for the proper functioning of the robots.

Second, the value obtained from the above calculation assumes a 100% uptake rate, that is, the robots will consume all the hydrogen gas available throughout earth's atmosphere in one go. This is also impossible. 

Lets go back to rhodium. According to Wikipedia: "Rhodium is a hard, silvery, durable metal that has a high reflectance. Rhodium metal does not normally form an oxide, even when heated.[15]Oxygen is absorbed from the atmosphere only at the melting point of rhodium, but is released on solidification.[16] Rhodium has both a higher melting point and lower density than platinum. It is not attacked by most acids: it is completely insoluble in nitric acid and dissolves slightly in aqua regia."

So not only it is strong, it is also highly resistant to corrosion (either through oxidation or contact with acid) as well as heat. Even more reason to use it in the first place. Hollywood always portrayed robots as invulnerable to human attacks, it is usually bullet proof, can't be destroyed from explosions and so on. Think Robocop, Terminator, and again Iron Man. Batman too. The only possible way to achieve this, from the facts available to me, is to use rhodium. Seeming that it is an extremely rare metal to begin with, mining for the metal is not exactly a workable solution to manufacture my robots. (Wikipedia: "Rhodium is one of the rarest elements in the Earth's crust, of which it comprises an estimated 0.0002 parts per million (2 × 10−10).[23] Its rarity affects its price, and thus its usage in commercial applications.")

Aside from fusion and its subsequent energy to mass conversion, I have to also explore other possibilities. These options will actually be less viable but as I am just exploring my fantasy; there is no harm in moving forward.

Option number two is using the process of annihilation to create energy. Annihilation is basically what happens when a particle and its subsequent antiparticle collides above a certain energy and this results in energy. A modern and widely occurring example is the electron-positron emission which produces energy in the form of gamma rays (photons). To employ this process, I have to find enough antiparticles first, for which the source is still unknown. Energy generation through annihilation is an example that is mentioned by theoretical physicist Michio Kaku as a possible energy source for a spaceship in the future to achieve very a high speed.

If, I managed to obtain sufficient amount of antiparticles (for which particle; that remains to be decided) or a sustainable means of producing them, (to make the process of producing antiparticles viable, the required energy must be less than the energy that will be produced from the subsequent annihilation process.), I also need viable means of containing these antiparticles.  - This option remains to be explored.

Option number three will sound preposterous to some, but this is a fantasy, so I will proceed to continue. Option number three is to create a black hole. Since a black hole has infinite mass, theoretically this mass should also be able to be converted to infinite energy. To make this even remotely viable, I have to also consider the means of containing the black hole. Containing a black hole should logically be a more challenging endeavour compared to containing antiparticles. The containment structure (or field) should have a cancelling effect on the gravitational force that is created by the black hole. The failure of this containment structure, even for the shortest amount of time (which will be the Planck time = 5.39106(32) × 10^−44 s) will inevitably lead to the total collapse of our solar system. So the stakes are pretty high.

Assuming that a fail-safe containment structure for the black hole is created, the next thing to do is creating a black hole. Naturally, black holes are created when giant stars collapse into themselves. The sudden expansion of mass of the star leads to an exponential increase in the gravitational field which then pulls all the mass into a singular point with zero volume and infinite density. Well, that is how I understand it anyway.

According to Wikipedia:

"Gravitational collapse is not the only process that could create black holes. In principle, black holes could be formed in high-energy collisions that achieve sufficient density. As of 2002, no such events have been detected, either directly or indirectly as a deficiency of the mass balance in particle accelerator experiments. [77] This suggests that there must be a lower limit for the mass of black holes. Theoretically, this boundary is expected to lie around the Planck mass (m P = √ħc/G ≈ 1.2 ×10 19 GeV/c 2 ≈

2.2 ×10 −8 kg), where quantum effects are expected to invalidate the predictions of general relativity. [78] This would put the creation of black holes firmly out of reach of any high-energy process occurring on or near the Earth."

That entry does not make any sense to me, and I view it with a certain level of incredulity. So going back to creating a black hole through gravitational collapse, how do you actually make that happen? To achieve a sufficient mass density, I will have to find way to strip away electrons and protons from atoms, essentially only leaving the neutron behind. This concentration of pure neutrons will be very, very dense and could quite possibly lead to a gravitational collapse.

The other big question is: How do you actually harvest energy from the black hole? I have no answer for now.

[Content redacted due to personal stuff]. I've had several revelations on things to write post-wake up. One of them is to write a fiction story.

The earth is invaded by an alien civilization. But this time, humans are the villain. 100 years into the future, people are still bickering on sustainable means of energy production which is also cost effective. Technology have not advanced so much, as there is a limit on how much energy is available to be used to meet the increasing demands of new technology. There are no flying cars, but cars are driverless.

Geographical boundaries between nations have ceased to be relevant. Groups of people are governed by their own belief systems, regardless of their location. Each groups will have their own language, laws and economic system. In the pursuit for more resources to sustain their followers, only three belief-systems prevailed. Three is an arbitrary number, I will need to elaborate more on the systems much later. Industrial use of land have been reduced as nearly all of the manufacturing process is automated. More land is used for agriculture; mainly for food production.

Between these three groups, one has developed to become more reliant on technology. They are engulfed by their idealism of transforming human lives. They seek of transcendence, functioning beyond their physical limits. (Question: what creation of them will prove to be so necessary but will stretch their energy production limits?)

This group is the same group which have failed miserably with their experimentations with fusion power many years earlier.

The prevailing method of energy generation that is used by all the three groups are geothermal conversion to electricity. Drills go down thousands of kilometers, piercing earth's crater and transferring the heat of molten lava percolating inside the mantel to the surface. Most of the geothermal stations are located near fault lines between the tectonic plates. The venting of heat from beneath the crater produces the additional desirable outcome of reducing stress between the tectonic plates. Since geothermal electric generation prevailed over other methods of generation, there have been a significant reduction in the occurrence of volcanic eruptions as well as earthquakes.

But geothermal energy have its drawbacks. It has introduced additional heat into the earth's climate system. Fossil fuel have been doing this for a long time, but the amount of heat released by petroleum and coal pales in comparison to the amount energy that is being harvested from beneath the earth's crater. Earth's climate system have significantly changed. Snow is a thing of the past. Earth's South pole and North pole are nothing but an endless vista of a cold ocean. Polar bears and penguins are extinct, a thing of the past. Earth experiences a summer-like weather all year round at nearly all places. Rain is frequent.

Earth's complex weather system stays beyond human comprehension, even 100 years into the future. The use of quantum computers have increased man's capability of understanding the climate, but only to a certain extent. Nevertheless, 7 day weather forecasts have become reliably accurate. People know when to bring an umbrella or when its a good time to have a picnic outside. 

The Energy dependent group needs more elaboration to move the story forward. Their philosophy is transcending beyond the human form. For them, mere automation of necessary tasks relevant to their well being is not enough. They are seeking to expand their awareness beyond their conventional senses. This group is now to be known as Group 1.

Group no. 2 evolved from the advances of financial innovation over the years. They live in a world within a virtual economy. They mostly work on assigning and controlling value on materials, ideas and services. Life is a process of financial transactions as a function of time. Empirical values of the monetary kind are even assigned to feelings.

Group 3 is a group that maintains their lives within a system of sensory overload. A normal interpersonal conversation between members of this group does not only involve verbal transactions, but also involve the production of visuals and also scents. Since they are little their heads are embedded by a small projector, a minor extrusion above the right ear, that transmits visuals directly into the human eye. The same extrusion includes a miniscule nozzle that is able to produce a panacea of scents. There is such a wide range of scents that they are able produce insofar that humans belonging to the other two groups are not able to discern the discrete differences of each quantum of scent. People of group three are the only ones that have a foreign object embedded into their body and their brains have evolved to accommodate the additional sensory information.

Although not common, there have been known instances of conversion of belief between people belonging to group one and group two. Conversion is generally frowned upon though, and in cases where it does occur, it is done in utter secrecy. But converting into group 3 is for a fact impossible. Their process of communication has evolved to such an advanced level that the group behaves as an organism of its own through the overwhelming expression of individuality between its members. ___

The United States president flies on one of two Boeing 747-VC25 official planes, which are now 25 years old from first flight.

Malaysia's Prime Minister in a terse reply is that one out of 7 official planes Malaysia has is 16 years old and a safety hazard, despite the fact that a lot of commercial airlines are over 20 years old.

What would be a much better response, is to show the existing running costs of current plane vs the new one, and also the schedule and usage of the official planes so Malaysian public can decide on their own whether it's worth spending a few hundred million for new plane for the Prime Minister or a new hospital.

Writing about science in Bangladesh seems to guarantee you a death sentence.

Das, meanwhile, was said to be the editor of Jukti, a scientific magazine, and also contributed to the blog Mukto Mona, which was run by Avijit Roy, a Bangladeshi blogger also hacked to death in February.

A similar type of attack killed blogger Washiqur Rahman Babu in March in the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka. CPJ said that the blogger "wrote about religion, science, and against communalism, mainly on Facebook."

Cool.

This is crazy.  Here are 95 perfectly cut 2.5 cm cubes of unprocessed foods, so beautifully made and organized that they look computer generated (but they aren't!).  What I find really impressive is that most items are really easy to identify, even with such small samples... how many can you get?

Hijabi Israelis?

Another moment of an #israeli   #independenceday  during #idf  weapons' exhibitions. Those guys on the front do not look too oppressed, are they? That's is because their families was of those few Arab fellows that trusted Jews and and stayed instead of running when other Arab armies attacked Israel in 1948___Hijabi Israelis?
