Modern technology has brought us many benefits, including mosquito traps that cost hundreds of dollars, but sometimes we overlook simple solutions to difficult challenges such as mosquito control. When it comes to controlling pests, research tends to focus on chemicals or concepts that can be patented. Unless someone can make a profit from an idea, the public may never become aware of it.

how to:
Because mosquitoes are attracted to the CO2 we breathe out, I started looking for ideas that used CO2 as the bait for the mosquito trap. I did think of dry ice but it does dissipate fairly quickly.

I found a cached link on Google here. It seems to be active again now. I've rewritten the instructions some and hopefully it will work as well.

Thanks to the students for their hard work on this project. I've used some of their photos for illustration.

Thanks to the students for their hard work on this project. I've used some of their photos for illustration.
Supplies:

1 2 liter soda bottle
a sharp knife
black paper
tape
candy thermometer

Take a 2 liter soda bottle. Cut off the top right below where it starts to narrow for the top, invert and place inside the lower half.

Make a simple sugar syrup.
Ingredients:

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 cups cool water
1 tsp. active dry yeast

Directions:

Bring 1 cup of the water to a boil.

Dissolve the sugar into the boiling water.

Once the sugar is dissolved completely, remove the pan from the heat. Stir in 2 cups cool water, stir well.

Check the temperature of the syrup to make sure it is no hotter than 90 degrees F, if hotter, let cool to 90 degrees F, add 1 tsp. active dry yeast, no need to mix. Put syrup in the bottom part of the bottle, using the cut off neck piece, leave in place.

Be sure to seal the two parts of the bottle with the tape. The fermenting yeast will release carbon dioxide. Put black paper around the bottle since mosquitoes like dark places and carbon dioxide. This mosquito trap will then start working.

TIPS: Put the trap in a dark and humid place for 2 weeks, you'll see the effect. You'll have to replace the sugar water + yeast solution every 2 weeks.

Rubio is a conservative, but fortunately the Three Laws of Robotics will keep him from harming us all. -- @SrWHOfficial

I only tuned in for about 20 minutes of the debate, but I caught the fourth time he gave that speech.

All I can think is that someone told him "To beat Cruz and Trump, you need to appeal to the conspiracy theorists," and he got carried away. It was just weird. He was asked a question. He said first he wanted to respond to someone. And his response had nothing to do with what they had said. When the moderator pointed that out, his excuse was, "Well, he mentioned Obama."

Maybe it's a post-hypnotic suggestion? Anytime someone says the word "Obama", he automatically gives his speech?

Vice does an indepth look at what led the CIA to spy on a senate investigation.

From the timeline, my guess is that someone misconfigured the search engine. It was supposed to have two access groups with one shared directory. But the CIA added a third group with their own documents. And their documents ended up in the search. That kind of after-the-spec-is-done tweaking often results in security issues, and this time it did as well. The CIA's analysis was available to the Senate team. And when the CIA's public response bore no relationship at all to their own internal review, they got caught with their pants down.

I'm investigating moving my email over to my (legacy) free Google Apps account. But I originally set it up with a secondary domain, not my usual email address. But I figure there must be a way to move it to a new domain.

Yes. You can do it it using the Google APIs. But not the web console.

Okay, so someone must have written this.

Of course they did. So I download a command line tool (Python) called GAM. Walk through an extremely long (but easy to follow) set of instructions on setting up my Google API account and giving it all the right API permissions. Get the whole thing installed. Run it. Run the command to change my primary domain...

Nope. You can only change to a validated secondary domain. My other domain is an alias, not a secondary domain. I can't make it a secondary domain because that's not an option on the legacy free accounts.

I think I have a solution. I can get a 30 day free trial for the business version, and I have the option of going back to the free version anytime in the 30 days (but not after). So if I turn on the trial, then I can add a secondary domain, swap the primary with it, and then go back to the free version.

That ought to work, right?

But I only get one chance to do it.

The things I'll do to avoid paying $40/month (5 * 8 folks on my family email server).

Of course, once I do all that, I still have the email alias problem. I use a custom email address for every site I sign up for. I used to use "+", but too many sites claimed it was an illegal character. So I switched to "-" and programmed my mail server to translate it as a "+". Here I'll need to use aliases for that, but Google only allows 30 aliases per account.

OTOH, I don't see any limits on the number of groups. So I could create a group for each one, and put only myself in the group. Is there really no limit to the number of groups? Anyone?

Or of course I could go update 20 years of websites with new email addresses. Ugh.

❝ Ruth Gruber was the youngest PhD graduate in the world, earning her degree at the age of 20 with a doctoral thesis on Virginia Woolf (the first academic work on the author), when she trudged out into the Arctic and became the first journalist to interview prisoners at a Soviet Gulag in 1935.

You can (until DMCA takedown) watch a SFW version of an XXX version of Batman. And it's not bad. Which probably says more about the original Batman than about porn movies, but whatever. :)

#t

This is... quite amazing, actually. Rule 34 means, of course, that this porn exists. But the really funny thing is that even after excising the naughty bits, it looks like a decent episode in its own right. This might be the first time I've seen a porn show with an actual plot... Now I kind of want to find the originals.

And oh yeah, there's legal and copyright questions over everything. I bet this made some law clerk's day to run across for a change.___You can (until DMCA takedown) watch a SFW version of an XXX version of Batman. And it's not bad.

❝ Argosy began in 1882 as a magazine for children and ceased publication ninety-six years later as soft-core porn for men, but for ten years in between it was the home of a true-crime column by Erle Stanley Gardner, the man who gave the world Perry Mason.

During her tour of Sundance virtual reality (VR) experiences, Andrea Mandell experienced Across the Line, which transported her for six minutes to a Planned Parenthood health care clinic parking lot.

"I walked past irate picketers at planned parenthood," she writes.

Executive director Dawn Laguens told her that the creators of this hard-hitting VR offering hope that it encourages legislators to think about "what women experience as they try to access health care, and especially abortion, in this country."

Director Brad Lichtenstein called VR an important empathy tool. "There's no way to really convey [these women's experiences] unless you put somebody right in the middle of what it feels like," he said.

Custody cases related to BDSM have dropped significantly since the DSM made a distinction between between behavior and pathology.

❝ “1987 was a bad shift,” Wright recalls. “Anyone who was [voluntarily] humiliated, beaten, bound, or any other alternate sexual expression was considered mentally ill.” ❞

#t  

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 5 was released in May 2013, its contents marking a dramatic improvement for people who practice BDSM. The final language states: “A paraphilia is a necessary but not a sufficient condition for having a paraphilic disorder, and a paraphilia by itself does not necessarily justify or require clinical intervention.”

“Now we are seeing a sharp drop in people having their children removed from their custody,” says Susan Wright, founder of the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF). Since the change, according to the NCSF, less than 10 percent of people who sought the organization’s help in custody cases have had their children removed, and the number of discrimination cases has dropped from more than 600 in 2002 to 500 in 2010 to around 200 over the last year.___Custody cases related to BDSM have dropped significantly since the DSM made a distinction between between behavior and pathology.

Watching a Black Hole With an 8" Telescope

Indirectly of course, but that's the only way to watch a black hole.

Watching A Black Hole From Your Back Yard

Black holes don’t emit light directly, but material around a black hole often does. As gas and dust falls toward a black hole, it’s often compressed and superheated, causing it to emit light. Usually the light we see is in the form of x-rays and gamma rays, since they can penetrate material surrounding a black hole. But recently we’ve observed visible light from material near a black hole, and with a decent telescope you could observe it from your back yard.

V404 Cygni is a black hole with a mass of about 12 Suns. Orbiting it is a star a bit smaller than our Sun. Every few years the star passes close enough to the black hole that some of its outer material gets captured by the black hole. The captured material falls into the black hole, and as it does the material is superheated and emits x-rays. We know the x-rays we observe come from near the black hole because they vary in brightness over a short time. Since the fluctuation of brightness depends upon the scale of the object emitting light, quick variations mean the source must be relatively small, and therefore near the black hole.

The emission of x-rays can also heat up material farther from the black hole, causing it glow in the visible spectrum. The visible glow from the black hole is much more steady, and doesn’t vary quickly. But when V404 Cygni became active, one of my colleagues, Michael Richmond, decided to check it out with RIT’s 8-inch telescope. He made the video you can see above. What he found was that the brightness of V404 Cygni varied in the visible spectrum in the same way it varied in the x-ray spectrum. This meant the visible light came from the same region close to the black hole.

What’s amazing about this is that Rochester isn’t known for having the best viewing conditions, and 8-inch telescopes are pretty common among hobbyists. So it wouldn’t be to difficult for folks to observe an active black hole from their back yard.

The high today is 55F, the streets are bare, and we've had no snow to speak of this year.

This was my all time favorite album when I was a kid. I still think it's the best children's album of all time. And growing up, I made this song the model of how I wanted to raise my kids.

This Train
Marty
Hey Jimmy Joe John Jim Jack
The Whale
Grace Darling
Morningtown Ride
Join Into The Game
I Had A Mule
Lollipop Tree
Run, Little Donkey
The Riddle Song
Stay On The Sunny Side
B-A Bay
America The Beautiful/This Land Is Your Land

I used to sing Morningtown Song to my kids every night. They got four songs a night, and that was always the last one. I once fell asleep in mid-verse and woke up singing the chorus :).

There once was a tiger, tiny little tiger, playin' with his tiger toys
But his nurse-maid made him so afraid, he didn't dare make a noise

There once was a tiger, tiny little tiger, playin' with his tiger toys
But his nurse-maid made him so afraid, he didn't dare make a noise
What happened to the tiger, tiny little tiger, who never learned to roar?
He's just a mat, stretched out flat on somebody's bedroom floor.
What we're sayin' is...

Hey, Jimmie, Joe, John, Jim, Jack
Even little tigers lose their knack
When somebody twice their size
Can't see the world through children's eyes.

There once was a bunny, fluffy little bunny, through the piney woods he'd roam
But his mother cried, "Come back inside! A bunny belongs at home!"
What happened to the bunny, fluffy little bunny, who never learned to hop?
Because the bunny couldn't hop, he hangs in a butcher shop.
What we're sayin' is...

Hey, Jimmie, Joe, John, Jim, Jack
Even little bunnieslose their knack
When somebody twice their size
Can't see the world through children's eyes.

There once was a beagle, happy little beagle, following his tail around
But his father said, "Go straight to bed, and don't make a single sound!"
What happened to the beagle, happy little beagle, who never learned to bay?
Some burglars came, and to his shame he turned tail and ran away.
What we're sayin' is...

Hey, Jimmie, Joe, John, Jim, Jack
Even little beagles lose their knack
When somebody twice their size
Can't see the world through children's eyes.

Don't do this. 
Don't do that. 
You might as well just be a statue.
That's how children lose their spark.
But if grown-ups would take part in things that children have their heart in
They'd never end up hiding in the dark

What we're sayin is...
Hey, Jimmy, Jack, John, Jim, Joe
When you have your own kids let them know
Even though you're twice their size
You see the world through children's eyes.___
