Bow down: I am the emperor of dreams;
I crown me with the million-colored sun
Of secret worlds incredible, and take
Their trailing skies for vestment when I soar,
Throned on the mounting zenith, and illume
The spaceward-flown horizons infinite.
~ Clark Ashton Smith, Excerpt from The Hashish Eater

Now as the twilight's doubtful interval
Closes with night's accomplished certainty,
A wizard wind goes crying eerily,
And on the wold misshapen shadows crawl,
Miming the trees, whose voices climb and fall,
Imploring, in Sabbatic ecstacy,
The sky where vapor-mounted phantoms flee
From the scythed moon impendent over all.

Twin veils of covering cloud and silence, thrown
Across the movement and the sound of things,
Make blank the night, till in the broken west
The moon's ensanguined blade awhile is... more »

If you've seen the movie, you'll know why THIS is the coolest thing on Google Plus right now. Read the comments on the OP for more fun.

The worst part about being a robotics student... is the research thesis I need to write when I'm a senior... Good thing I keep extensive lab notes on all my experiments. Especially when I created Baymax. ___If you've seen the movie, you'll know why THIS is the coolest thing on Google Plus right now. Read the comments on the OP for more fun.

"Isaiah Saxon and Sean Hellfritsch from Encyclopedia Pictura, a San Francisco studio that previously worked on Grizzly Bear's "Knife" clip, directed the "Boys Latin" video. "We tried hard to bring out the vibe of that alternating melody that Noah is singing. We wondered what that should look and feel like from a synesthesia perspective," Saxon said in a statement. "We've always believed that shapes and forms themselves have emotional meaning. For example, round things are often cute and non-threatening, while spiky things usually seem dangerous. We ran with that idea by creating these dynamic forms that grow out of our characters as they deal with their emotions."

Almost completely cut off from life by her debilitating illness, Laura Hillenbrand, the author of “Seabiscuit” and “Unbroken,” finds ways to bring her inspiring and award-winning histories to life. 

Thank you, +Bill McGarvey for sharing the story of this amazing woman.


Unbroken, Still...

A long read, but a good read, nonetheless.

"It may be tempting to think of Hillenbrand as someone who has triumphed in spite of her illness. The truth is at once more complicated and more interesting. Many of the qualities that make Hillenbrand’s writing distinctive are a direct consequence of her physical limitations. Every writer works differently, but Hillenbrand works more differently than any writer I know of. She has been forced by the illness to develop convoluted workarounds for some of the most basic research tasks, yet her workarounds, in all their strange complexity, deliver many of her greatest advantages. When I asked, for example, how she reads old newspapers on microfilm without traveling to a library, I was stunned to discover that she doesn’t.  'I can’t look at microfiche,' she said. 'I couldn’t do that even in my good vertigo years.' "

How geogeeks wish one another Merry Christmas. Thank you, +Jakub Marian and +Rob Jongschaap 

I've corrected a few mistakes in my map of "Merry Christmas". The one that surprised me most is that English is not the official language of the United Kingdom! Although the British government and the media refer to English as if it were the official language of the UK, the official status is not anchored anywhere in the law. English is "officially official" only in Wales (alongside Welsh).___How geogeeks wish one another Merry Christmas. Thank you, +Jakub Marian and +Rob Jongschaap

The Spiral Jetty from space. I am also linking +Irina Tcherednichenko's wonderful post with photos and personal memoirs of this wonderful earthwork sculpture: https://plus.google.com/+IrinaTcherednichenko/posts/MLsNELRCFAT

Spiral Jetty, Great Salt Lake, Utah, USA | Earth | Satellite
Spiral Jetty is an earthwork sculpture by Robert Smithson, consisting of a 1,500-foot-long (460m), 15-foot-wide (4.6m) counterclockwise coil jutting from the northeastern shore of the Great Salt Lake in Utah, USA. Smithson reportedly chose this site because of the vibrant colors of the water (salt-tolerant bacteria and algae thrive here in 27% salinity) and its connection with the primordial sea.

"The Daily Overview project was inspired, and derives its name, from an idea known as the Overview Effect. This term refers to the sensation astronauts have when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole. They have the chance to appreciate our home in its entirety, to reflect on its beauty and its fragility all at once. That's the cognitive shift that we hope to inspire."

"We start out just the same way you would make a map on Earth; we start by making a base map, specifically with photos from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The MRO has a camera on it called HIRISE, the High-Resolution Science Experiment. HIRISE takes pictures at roughly 25 centimeters square, about the size of a dinner plate. So if you put a dinner plate on Mars, it could take a picture of it, or at least it would show up as a bright dot. When we take pictures of the ground we can take them at different angles, and when we do we can create an elevation model. With that information we can see the shape of craters and rocky areas and figure out where it's safe to land, where it's safe to drive the rover and, just as important, where do we want to go to do the science?"

It shouldn't be surprising that NASA offers the coolest job titles in the solar system. Best, hands down, is Planetary Protection Officer. Just behind it is Mars Rover Driver. But running a close third: Keeper of the Maps. So this is how my friend Fred Calef helps us understand where our rovers are and how they should get where we're going. Basically, he's our Martian GPS.___"We start out just the same way you would make a map on Earth; we start by making a base map, specifically with photos from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

And what of the dead? I own that I thought of myself, at times, almost as dead. Are they not locked below ground in chambers smaller than mine was, in their millions of millions? There is no category of human activity in which the dead do not outnumber the living many times over. Most beautiful children are dead. Most soldiers, most cowards. The fairest women and the most learned men – all are dead. Their bodies repose in caskets, in sarcophagi, beneath arches of rude stone, everywhere under the earth. Their spirits haunt our minds, ears pressed to the bones of our foreheads. Who can say how intently they listen as we speak, or for what word?

The atmosphere and iconography of Gene Wolfe’s books already existed in my own imagination way before I read them. If you take a look at the section of my website titled “Migraine Monochromes” you’ll see what I mean. They were done back in the 1970’s – prior to 1980 when I was given the first in the Urth series to illustrate. The mood and environment were paramount above any particular scene, although I tried to keep as close as possible to the text.

Aside from Frank Frazetta, Bruce Pennington is the name to know in terms of vintage sci-fi/fantasy art. The graphic genius composed some of the most iconic covers in the genre's history, including works for the Dune series and the New Sun Cycle. Here's a brief gallery of his maddening designs, from a time before the Apple-induced simplicity we're accustomed to today, when publishers wanted every square inch of the book jacket to scream bizarre adventure, alien vistas, and mind-blowing narratives.

The likelihood that Smith will ever attain widespread recognition for his poetry is, to be sure, not great. Most members of the general literary community have become so unaccustomed to the lushness and complexity of this kind of poetry that they are likely to pass it off unthinkingly as either esoteric or passé (as if literary merit were somehow equivalent to contemporaneousness); while devotees of Smith's fiction appear to be unfamiliar with the rhetoric of poetry and are therefore unused to fantasy in verse form. But to the judicious reader, the compressed brilliance, the imaginative range, and the verbal and metrical panache of Smith's odes, sonnets, and lyrics will be immediately evident. The Roman axiom pulchrum est paucorum hominum ("Beauty is for the few") never had a more relevant object than the poetry of Clark Ashton Smith.
~ S. T. JOSHI & DAVID E. SCHULTZ, 2002 Introduction to The Last Oblivion: Best Fantastic Poems of Clark Ashton Smith

"Clark Ashton Smith was born on January 13th, 1893, in Long Valley, California and lived much of his life in nearby Auburn, with his parents. An autodidact after Grade 5, Smith began to write at the age of eleven. At seventeen, Smith sold stories to The Black Cat, The Overland Monthly, and other magazines. His first collection of verse, Star-Treader and Other Poems was published in 1912, and received rave reviews. He resumed writing short stories in the late 20s, his best output occurring between 1930 and 1936, often in Weird Tales. A literary friend of Robert E. Howard and H.P. Lovecraft, he contributed a number of elements to the Cthulhu Mythos, and created a world of Hyperborea before Howard used it for his Conan tales. He continued to publish verse in a number of magazines. His translations of Baudelaire's Les fleurs du mal (The Flowers of Evil) are also very highly regarded. Smith was also a painter and sculptor. He also worked a number of mundane jobs including journalist, a fruit picker and packer, a wood chopper, a typist, a cement-mixer, a gardener, a hard-rock miner, mucker and windlasser."

Lovecraft, he contributed a number of elements to the Cthulhu Mythos, and created a world of Hyperborea before Howard used it for his Conan tales. He continued to publish verse in a number of magazines. His translations of Baudelaire's Les fleurs du mal (The Flowers of Evil) are also very highly regarded. Smith was also a painter and sculptor. He also worked a number of mundane jobs including journalist, a fruit picker and packer, a wood chopper, a typist, a cement-mixer, a gardener, a hard-rock miner, mucker and windlasser."

As you float through the dreamy ice world, your brain attempts to make sense of this bizarre landscape the only way it knows how. It makes connections to the familiar.

“When you fine tune your curiosity into a place somewhere between the smallest pebble and grandest vista, you stop merely looking and begin to see.”

Glenn Dixon shares a subtle but enthralling Antarctic tale.___As you float through the dreamy ice world, your brain attempts to make sense of this bizarre landscape the only way it knows how. It makes connections to the familiar. You begin to see cars, animals, household objects and even human faces reflected in the solemn ice. It seems each and every piece that floats by is more beautiful and elegant than the previous. Their sweeping curves and succulent textures give them their own distinct personalities. They are familiar, yet they are completely unknown.

As the summer sun broadcasts its warmth for almost twenty-four hours each day, it sculpts the ice into breathtaking shapes. The truly remarkable thing is, at any given moment, you are the only person who will ever see this particular configuration of ice. Everything is constantly changing. The dynamic tidal systems and strong ocean winds are shifting the icebergs around while the melting sun causes them to become unbalanced, eventually flipping over with surprising force. There are few things more humbling than sitting for hours on a lonely, rocky beach and watching these gentle giants play in tender currents.  

There is an allure that this space imparts on the imagination. I could sit and float around the ice all day making photographs. Everywhere you point your lens there is a new and abstract photographic opportunity waiting to be seized. Your eye seems to leap from one piece of ice to the next, drawn into the deepest crevasses from which the most brilliant, yet impossibly blue hues emit.  

These floating travellers, drifting at the mercy of the tides, are quiet and withdrawn. As they break up there is no sense of despair or bitterness, just the comfort in knowing that as they part ways, new life and opportunity is born. The end of one thing is the beginning of another and is perhaps not to be feared.

"Autonomous cars will require maps that differ in several important ways from the maps we use today for turn-by-turn directions. They need to be hi-def. Meter-resolution maps may be good enough for GPS-based navigation, but autonomous cars will need maps that can tell them where the curb is within a few centimeters. They also need to be live, updated second by second with information about accidents, traffic backups, and lane closures. Finally, and this was the point Skillman was trying to make with the 1720 road atlas, they’ll need to take human psychology into account and win the trust of their passengers. “The key to making autonomous driving work is to not forget about the driver,” Skillman said."

Update: 12/14/2014

Recent analysis of data from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter indicates Candor Colles, a western portion of Mars' Candor Chasma, one of the largest canyons within the longest canyon system in the solar system, Valles Marineris, once held lakes, which filled with sediments. Shaking of the sediments by "marsquakes" related to faults in the region produced the hilly landforms of Candor Colles.

The Soul of Seoul by Dave Shapiro. Haven't circled Dave yet? Here is one of the wonderful posts you are missing!

Thank you, +Dave Shapiro 

Seoul: A Modern Phoenix

According to ancient Greek legend, the Phoenix was a bird that regenerated from the ashes of its prior form. If there is any modern city that could make the same claim it would be Seoul, South Korea. Seoul has demonstrated to the world what can be accomplished when intelligence, ambition and courage cooperate to build, to create a global city in a single generation.

There is archaeological evidence that the Seoul area was first settled in the Paleolithic Age. Early settlements were built near the banks of rivers and this one rested on the edge of the Han River which divides Seoul today. In 18 B.C.E., King Onjo selected the site for the capital of the Baekje Kingdom. One of three kingdoms that resided in the Korean Peninsula, by the 4th century the Baekje Kingdom controlled most of the western portion of the peninsula and stretched into China.

Control of the area would pass through many nations as the peninsula was invaded repeatedly until 1392 and the rise of the Joseon Dynasty. The Seoul settlement was established as the capital. The influence of the Joseon Dynasty cannot be overstated. The Dynasty ruled from 1392 until 1897. Within a decade of the establishment of Seoul as the capital, the population grew to more than 100,000 people (a significant size for that period). The Joseon Dynasty was based on Confucian philosophy, a humanist philosophy which continues to permeate Korean society today - one of its greatest strengths. After invasions from China and Japan, Korea became isolated by choice; it was known as the ‘Hermit Kingdom’.

In 1897 Korea voluntarily ended its isolation and became the first city in Asia to have telephones, telegraph, a water system, electricity and introduced trolley cars. Then in 1910, Japan invaded once again, this time annexing Korea. For whatever reason, the Japanese policy was to eradicate the Korean culture. Temples were destroyed, laws passed that banned the teaching of Korean history, language and tradition. Korean names were replaced with their Japanese equivalent; even the architecture for new buildings was in the Japanese style. As an indication of their dominance, the Japanese government office was built with traditional Japanese architecture, directly across from the Korean Palace. In 1948, Japan lost control of Korea.

1950 brought the Korean War; basically a civil war for control of the country. During the war, Seoul exchanged hands four times. The destruction in the city was catastrophic. Nearly 200,000 buildings, 1,000 factories and nearly 60,000 homes had been destroyed. Of the 2.5 million people living in Seoul, nearly half were homeless. 

Out of the ashes of that city, a new metropolis arose. In the 1960’s South Korea began to restructure, to build and to create a new city and a new society. It became the first of the “Asian Tiger” economies. Determined to ‘invest in human capital’, the public education program expanded. Today it is one of the toughest and finest in the world. In 1945 the literacy rate was only 22%; today male literacy is at 99.2% and female literacy at 96.6% Education is highly valued. There are 38 universities and competition is intense. The intensity and the competition are similar to that of India and as in India, the suicide rate among students is greater than that of other countries.

Today Seoul is a global city; the metropolitan area is one of the largest in the world. 25% of the population of South Korea resides in Seoul. South Korean companies have become world competitors. The robust growth in the economy has produced a large middle class. In 2012 a report was issued that indicated the quality of life in Seoul exceeded that of New York, London and Melbourne and was slightly behind that of Paris and Tokyo. 

In 2011 the world’s largest ‘floating island’ was completed. This island complex is used for performing arts, water sports and other entertainment. These islands float on the Han River which divides the city.

Finally, Seoul is the gaming capital of the world. Per capita there are more ‘gamers’ than anywhere else. There are gaming cafes for video as well as board games. VIdeo games dominate in popularity and this has not been lost on game designers. Some companies have designed special maps or scenarios just for the Korean gamers.___The Soul of Seoul by Dave Shapiro. Haven't circled Dave yet? Here is one of the wonderful posts you are missing!

Both art and science arise from our root desires to describe our experience of reality. From this starting point, the artistic and scientific paths diverge. Science describes external reality, about which we share a consensus. Art captures our internal, subjective realities. But the two sides do not always stand apart. My own work can best be described as science/art, not simply because I paint that which scientists study but because I draw evenly from artistic and scientific approaches to capture the essence of the neurons that carry sensations and produce thought.

Often these girls are shunned by their families and ostracized by their communities simply because they want to learn and are willing to risk nearly everything just to stay in a classroom.

Like Malala, they want simply to have the opportunity to pick up a pencil, read a book and become who they would be if no barriers stood in their way."

She is mature and wise, well beyond her years

"An atmospheric river is a conveyor belt of vapor that extends thousands of miles from out at sea, carrying as much water as 15 Mississippi Rivers. It strikes as a series of storms that arrive for days or weeks on end. Each storm can dump inches of rain or feet of snow. Meteorologists sometimes call small occurrences “pineapple expresses,” because they tend to flow in a straight line from around Hawaii toward the U.S. West Coast. The graphic below explains the details."

+Dave Shapiro​ highlights a hero, Chiune Sugihara, who acted in his official capacity to save over 6,000 Jewish refugees during WWII, even though it ended his career in disgrace. What an amazing hero and an ultimate act of personal integrity. Never doubt that the choices you make can change the world.

Thank you, +Dave Shapiro​ 

And whoever saves a life, is considered as if he saved an entire world. 

History documents the great warriors, the great builders, authors, inventors and artists but seldom takes note of those quiet heroes; people who do not seek fame or monetary gain but perform exceptional, extraordinary actions to save someone’s life. Too often we celebrate the most efficient warriors while ignoring the silent heroes. World War II was the most devastating war to ever be waged. We know Hitler, Patton, Rommel, Churchill, Hiro Hito, Roosevelt, Mussolini and scores of others but Chiune (Sempo) and Yukiko Sugihara....? 

In March 1939 Chiune Sugihara became the Japanese Consul General in Lithuania. Just months after his posting, Germany invaded Poland. Jewish refugees surged into Lithuania with tales of atrocities. Temporarily housed by the Jewish community of Lithuania, the situation worsened when the Soviet army invaded Lithuania. Travel to the west would be impossible; escape would have to be through an eastern route. Eventually the refugees discovered that the Dutch had authorized their Consul, Jan Zwartendijk, to issue entrance visas to Dutch controlled Curacao and Guiana (Surinam). The only viable option was to travel through Japan and that would require a travel visa from the Japanese Consulate.

The refugees approached the Japanese Consulate requesting the travel visas. Sugihara contacted the Tokyo government three times requesting permission to grant the visas. The response was: “CONCERNING THE TRAVEL VISAS PREVIOUSLY REQUESTED... ....ABSOLUTELY NOT....NO EXCEPTIONS...NO FURTHER INQUIRES EXPECTED.”  

Sugihara was aware of the plight of these Jews and he discussed with his wife, the possible repercussions of not following his government’s instructions. Failure to act ‘in the best interest of the Japanese government’ would result in the end of his career and financial losses, he would return to Japan having shamed himself, his family and his family name. The situation worsened and the pressure on Sugihara increased as the German army advanced on Lithuania; the Soviet government ordered all foreign embassies to close. Sugihara was conflicted; he had been raised with the traditional samurai ethics. Sugihara requested an additional 20 days to complete ‘business’. 

In 1940 all visas were hand written with an accompanying official stamp. Sugihara and his wife proceeded to write visas; hundreds and hundreds of visas. They attempted to complete 300 visas per day (normally a month’s worth). Hundreds of visas became thousands. There are stories that as Sugihara sat on the train waiting to depart Lithuania, he continued writing visas. As the train left the station, he passed the official Japanese visa stamp to one of the refugees.

As many as 6000, Jewish refugees were housed in Kobe Japan and Shanghai China. These survivors became known as Sugihara Survivors. Unfortunately, as expected, Sugihara was recalled to Japan, terminated and disgraced. He struggled to provide for his family. 
Though recognition for his actions required decades, his actions were noted. In 1985, Sugihara was declared Righteous Among the Nations (חסידי אומות העולם) by the government of Israel. He was awarded (posthumously) the Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland, the Order of Polonia Restituta and the Life Saving Cross of Lithuania. In Japan statues have been raised and documentaries filmed. Schools teach of his exploits. An asteroid has been named for him.

On one occasion Sugihara was asked why he issued the visas to the Jews. He replied: “I knew that somebody would surely complain about me in the future. But, I myself, thought this would be the right thing to do. There is nothing wrong in saving many people’s lives.”___+Dave Shapiro​ highlights a hero, Chiune Sugihara, who acted in his official capacity to save over 6,000 Jewish refugees during WWII, even though it ended his career in disgrace.

Bay Area Storm Watch

+Mike Pegg has put together a collection of SF Bay Area Storm links to keep you informed and find the resources you need in case of crisis. There are also links to help you follow the storm in Twitter. Stay safe and dry, Plussers!

Thanks, +Mike Pegg 

[SF Bay Area Storm links - expand below]
If you’re a weather watching geek like me, any system that brings with it higher than normal precipitation and winds will be super interesting to you.. especially in the weather-boring San Francisco Bay Area.  The storm that’s arriving on our doorstep later this evening is a once in a decade or so thing.. so I’m watching closely!  :)  

People from outside the area will scoff (and so did I when I first arrived here from Ontario, Canada) but heavy amounts of rain and wind have significant impact to a ground surface area that don't get either in extreme doses very often.  That includes fragile trees/limbs and waterways that fill up fast.  I've come to appreciate the impact and no longer compare it to other areas.    

Here are the sites I have fired up in Chrome and I’m sharing them here:

Weather Underground Map [goo.gl/X4wL] - Tons of weather station data, webcams, radar etc that you can toggle on and off.  You can pretty much camp out on this mashup throughout the storm.

Google Crisis Response Map [goo.gl/WCiCJc] - This map is the best place to see all official alerts (eg: National Weather Service), see Red Cross shelters if they end up being set up and community storm reports.  

Google Public Alerts [goo.gl/79LmWJ] - Clearinghouse for National Weather Service Alerts for Northern California.  When you go through to specific alert pages, tweets and news for that specific alert are also shown.

NWSBay Official Twitter account [goo.gl/qWPfhP] - National Weather Service San Francisco and Monterey Bay area.  Super geeky, TONS of data posted here.  

NOAA Real time river flood info and forecasts [goo.gl/BDHHe1] 

Bay Area Meteorologists to follow: +Rob Mayeda, [Jeff Ranieri: goo.gl/X2gE6X]

Twitter "BayAreaStorm" hashtag: [goo.gl/FDbfbq]
*Google+ equivalent: #BayAreaStorm   

Super cool wind direction visualizer [goo.gl/nKlu8V] - Pure eye candy, nothing else.  :)  [via +Alex Roux]

Another tip: Go on to your city/municipality’s website and email yourself a few links to things like Utility Outages [eg here: goo.gl/35Lh28 for Palo Alto].  This can end up being a lot easier to search down from your computer than on mobile if you’ve lost your electricity.  Also searching terms on Twitter like “outage yourcitynamehere” are good as well to see official accounts of municipalities or public utilities tweeting updates.  

Enjoy the storm - should be fun to experience together!  ___Bay Area Storm Watch

The whole world was spread out before me. I had a blank canvas to fill with extraordinary possibilities, a fascinating jigsaw puzzle to piece together. It was a once-in-a-lifetime — a once-in-the-history-of-the-world — opportunity for anyone, but especially for a woman in the 1940s.
