If you are open to scientific evidence this superb essay may change your mind. It succinctly makes the case for GMOs (including the one area where they are of legitimate concern). It also does a good job in describing why labeling (in current form) is not the answer.

Robocup 2015: Exciting Robot Football Save.
Join the Simple Science and Interesting Things Community and share interesting stuff! https://plus.google.com/communities/117518490246975838002

RoboCup is an annual international robotics competition proposed in 1995 and founded in 1997. The aim is to promote robotics and AI research, by offering a publicly appealing, but formidable challenge. The name RoboCup is a contraction of the competition's full name, "Robot Soccer World Cup", but there are many other stages of the competition such as "RoboCupRescue", "RoboCup@Home" and "RoboCupJunior". In 2014 the world's competition was held in Brazil. RoboCup 2015 was held in Hefei, China

Technically very cool and sweet.

[Throwing a torch in Virtual Reality] 
This seems like a bigger achievement than it looks : Two guys basically blindfolded, using a digital representation as their basis of motor functions like throwing/catching. Pretty wicked.

The speed of the calculations occuring here is absolutely mind-blowing.
Person A starts to move arm - computer A sends information displaying arm movements and torch location. computer B receives the information and displays it for Person B. All fast enough for Person B to actually physically catch the torch. The simulated times and distances and RL times and distances have to be within an extremely low margin to successfully catch a thrown object.___Technically very cool and sweet.

The Silver Cord, Co-authored by Steve Masseroni and myself, will officially be translated into Chinese. This is an amazing achievement. We are grateful to the nearly 1000 Chinese fans who backed the campaign.

Raising almost 300,000 Renminbi raised ($46,823.79), The SIlver Cord Chinese translation campaign bettered our US ‪#‎Kickstarter‬ campaign (which had 720 backers who pledged $42,723). Which means we have a bigger fan base in CHINA.

We are very thankful to Jiamin Zhao, CO-founder and CEO of http://www.yeeyan.org, who was the catalyst, and to Geoffrey Chen, founder and CEO of Zanshang Crowd Publishing for all their support http://www.zan-shang.com

The fourth dead whale washed up on our nearby beach today. But we have also never seen so many live whales feeding so close to shore these past 3 weeks. The whales are gorging on fish and will breach with their mouths open to scoop the fish. Also  we've seen lots of dolphin very close. All this is happening just south of the mouth of the Golden Gate and San Francisco.

Kill decision. It's coming.

> The Samsung SGR-1 patrols the border between North and South Korea, called the Demilitarized Zone. South Korea installed the stationary robots, developed by Samsung Techwin and Korea University, according to NBC News.

Roff said the SGR-1 was initially built with the capability to detect, target, shoot intruders from two miles away.

"In that sense, it's a really sophisticated landmine, it can sense a certain thing and can automatically fire," she said.

But Peter Asaro, the co-founder of the International Committee for Robot Arms Control, told NBC News that South Korea received "a lot of bad press about having autonomous killer robots on their border."

Now the SGR-1 can now only detect and target but requires a human operator to approve the kill shot.

Nicely done, China.

Technicians have begun assembling the world's largest radio telescope, with a dish the size of 30 football grounds, deep in the mountains of southwest China's Guizhou Province. Yesterday afternoon, they began to assemble the telescope's reflector, which is 500 meters in diameter, compared to Puerto Rico's Arecibo Observatory, which is 300 meters. "Having a more sensitive telescope, we can receive weaker and more distant radio messages. It will help us to search for intelligent life outside of the galaxy and explore the origins of the universe," Wu Xiangping, director-general of the Chinese Astronomical Society said.

Okay fine. But please read the first few chapters of Liu Cixin’s epic Science Fiction novel (and current Hugo Award nominee) THE THREE BODY PROBLEM. That will teach you caution not to press SEND with any “outgoing messages.” Listening is good.___Nicely done, China.

In 1491, pre Columbus, the Amazon may have had a native population of 5-6 million, with large scale agriculture and crop domestication, whose remnants can still be found in the jungles.

The secret is that only 5% of the world's species have been discovered. Some of the unknown ones may be in your backyard. We could use better tools to look.

Aquaterra is a unique shallow underwater area rich in human remains and climatic clues. It is explorable with ROVs..

"Dobson calls the area “aquaterra,” a new name for the previously undefined lands that were repeatedly exposed and inundated as ice sheets advanced and retreated over the past 120,000 years.  “It’s like a vast millennial tide,” he said, “as glaciers hold and release waters to the oceans, and it’s the same timeframe as the rise of modern humans.”

Nobody has a better nose for what is coming in the near future than NYT's technology writer John Markoff. IN this interview he riffs on what he thinks is coming, and what he thinks the next platform will be. I agree with his pick of VR/AR and AI: http://edge.org/conversation/john_markoff-the-next-wave

If you are open to scientific evidence this superb essay may change your mind. It succinctly makes the case for GMOs (including the one area where they are of legitimate concern). It also does a good job in describing why labeling (in current form) is not the answer.
