The Sound of the Sun by George Bradley 1953

It makes one all right, though you hadn’t thought of it,
A sound like the sound of the sky on fire, like Armageddon,   
Whistling and crackling, the explosions of sunlight booming   
As the huge mass of gas rages into the emptiness around it.
It isn’t a sound you are often aware of, though the light speeds   
To us in seconds, each dawn leaping easily across a chasm   
Of space that swallows the sound of that sphere, but   
If you listen closely some morning, when the sun swells  
Over the horizon and the world is still and still asleep,   
You might hear it, a faint noise so far inside your mind
That it must come from somewhere, from light rushing to darkness, 
Energy burning towards entropy, towards a peaceful solution,   
Burning brilliantly, spontaneously, in the middle of nowhere,  
And you, too,... more »

WHAT DOES THE SUN SOUND LIKE?: The sound of the sun plays a vital role in how we understand it. Listen to it here: http://dne.ws/1abPy23___The Sound of the Sun by George Bradley 1953

Another minimalist map - this time it is the world's time zones minus the world. While based on lines of longitude, lines have been adjusted to avoid population centers or follow borders, or simply to reduce the number of time zones. Throw in local variations and daylight savings and it is a wonder anyone knows what time it is.

Defying gravity...

Thank you, +Kostas Michalis 

"Dismissal of dance music can be found throughout the critical history of Western "serious" music.  To the extent that the appeal is to physicality rather than abstracted listening, dance music is often trivialized at the same time that its power to distract and arouse is regarded with anxiety (McClary in Popular Music and Film / I. Inglis)

A dramatic entrance on a grand staircase for the superlative writing of Virginia Woolf, brought to you by the lovely hand of +Anna del Valle Martí 


Playing with light and darkness

"Lazy and indifferent, shaking space easily from his wings, knowing his way, the heron passes over the church beneath the sky. White and distant, absorbed in itself, endlessly the sky covers and uncovers, moves and remains. A lake? Blot the shores of it out! A mountain? Oh, perfect—the sun gold on its slopes. Down that falls. Ferns then, or white feathers, for ever and ever——
   Desiring truth, awaiting it, laboriously distilling a few words, for ever desiring—(a cry starts to the left, another to the right. Wheels strike divergently. Omnibuses conglomerate in conflict)—for ever desiring—(the clock asseverates with twelve distinct strokes that it is midday; light sheds gold scales; children swarm)—for ever desiring truth. Red is the dome; coins hang on the trees; smoke trails from the chimneys; bark, shout, cry "Iron for sale"—and truth?
   Radiating to a point men's feet and women's feet, black or gold-encrusted—(This foggy weather—Sugar? No, thank you—The commonwealth of the future)—the firelight darting and making the room red, save for the black figures and their bright eyes, while outside a van discharges, Miss Thingummy drinks tea at her desk, and plate-glass preserves fur coats——
   Flaunted, leaf-light, drifting at corners, blown across the wheels, silver-splashed, home or not home, gathered, scattered, squandered in separate scales, swept up, down, torn, sunk, assembled—and truth?
   Now to recollect by the fireside on the white square of marble. From ivory depths words rising shed their blackness, blossom and penetrate. Fallen the book; in the flame, in the smoke, in the momentary sparks—or now voyaging, the marble square pendant, minarets beneath and the Indian seas, while space rushes blue and stars glint—truth? or now, content with closeness?
   Lazy and indifferent the heron returns; the sky veils her stars; then bares them."

Virginia Woolf. "Monday or Tuesday" in Monday or Tuesday, 1921.

"Examine for a moment an ordinary mind on an ordinary day. The mind receives a myriad impressions—trivial, fantastic, evanescent, or engraved with the sharpness of steel. From all sides they come, an incessant shower of innumerable atoms; and as they fall, as they shape themselves into the life of Monday or Tuesday."

Virginia Woolf. Modern Fiction, 1919.

Photography "7, rue de l'Estrapade" by Eugène Atget, 1904-1905.

In some ways I see what we’re doing here in the impetus of this company is taking a lot of the learning [at Google] about how to do big data, how to apply [artificial intelligence], how to apply machine learning to these pipelines of images, and apply that to the satellite space.

Using satellite imagery and cutting-edge computing techniques to estimate global oil surplus, predict crop shortfalls before harvest time and spot retail trends by keeping track of the number of cars in big-box parking lots. "The company, Orbital Insight, uses machine learning techniques and computing networks that mimic the human brain to spot patterns in massive amounts of visual data. Facebook uses similar techniques to recognize faces in uploaded images and auto-tag you and your friends. But instead of searching for faces, Orbital Insight is taking advantage of the growing abundance of satellite imagery, thanks to the rise of small, low-cost satellites, and teaching their networks to automatically recognize things like vehicles, the rate of construction in China and the shadows cast by floating-lid oil containers, which change depending on how full they are."___In some ways I see what we’re doing here in the impetus of this company is taking a lot of the learning [at Google] about how to do big data, how to apply [artificial intelligence], how to apply machine learning to these pipelines of images, and apply that to the satellite space.

My next blog series will be a transect across the most dangerous kind of plate boundary in the world: a subduction zone in central California. The nice thing about the zone in central California is that it is extinct so we only worry about magnitude 7.8-8.0 quakes on the San Andreas fault, not the magnitude 9.0 monsters that are 30 times more powerful.___Our favorite Geotripper, +Garry Hayes, talks subduction - mélange, forearc basins, and magmatic arcs.

Earth Hour, raise awareness about climate change.

More at: http://www.earthhour.org/ Thank you, +Google Earth Blog 

Earth Hour takes place this Saturday, 28th of March at 8:30 pm local time. Earth hour is an annual event designed to raise awareness of global climate change. Participants turn off their lights for a period of 1 hour. It would be nice to see what this would look like from space, but due to obstruction from cloud cover and lightening, it might be difficult to see the effect. Nevertheless, this would be a good opportunity to look at what the earth looks like at night and see just how much energy we waste on lighting.

Happy Leonard Nimoy's Birthday, plussers. May you remember to hug those you love today. Thank you, +lynn paden 

I am convinced
by Leonard Nimoy

I am convinced
That if all mankind
Could only gather together
In one circle
Arms on each other's shoulders
And dance, laugh and cry
     together
   Then much
     of the tension and burden
       of life
     Would fall away
In the knowledge that
We are all children
Needing and wanting
Each other's
Comfort and
Understanding
We are all children
Searching for love

Them bones, them bones, gonna walk around

Google Earth allows anyone to travel the globe and see the world which is exactly what armchair traveller Jamal Masood does as part of the Google Earth Community and then blogs about what he finds. In this entry in his travelogue, Jamal follows "Calmita Cosmica" (the Cosmic Magnet), the 92 foot-long, perfectly-scaled skeleton (except for the long, strange nose) created by Italian artist Gino De Dominicis, as it travels from exhibition to exhibition all over Europe. Cosmica has (maybe) now found a permanent resting place in the MAXXI, the National Centre of Contemporary Arts in Rome, Italy. But who knows? Cosmica may get restless again.

When you please your mother by doing something, it gives you confidence that you can please other people.  I think that’s where the courage to make people laugh came from, but I didn’t want to be a comedian. I wanted to be an actor.  Maybe a comic actor, but an actor. That’s what got me into acting was putting on an act, because in life, I wasn’t funny and I felt on stage or in the movies, I could do whatever I wanted to. I was free.

"This is one of the finest collections of 17th century cartographical prints and drawings in existence. Joan Blaeu's original 'Atlas Maior' (Great Atlas) from the 1660s was substantially expanded into something of a personal world geo-encyclopaedia in the following decade by the Amsterdam lawyer, Laurens van der Hem, while continuing a visual style established by Blaeu.

The gargantuan ~50 volume series -- housed today in the Austrian National Library in Vienna -- includes more than 2400 maps, charts, sketches and birds-eye-views of towns, buildings and harbours, seascapes and landscapes, with the occasional portrait of significant historical figures."

Thank you, +Matt Hall 

The Atlas Blaeu-Van der Hem
This documentary takes a look at the Atlas Blaeu-Van der Hem – one of the largest and greatest atlases ever assembled. Created by Willem Blaeu and his son Joan in 17th century Amsterdam, the atlas contains nearly 600 maps charting the world. It was published in different languages – Latin, German, French, Spanish and Dutch.

This documentary also shows how publishers created a facsimile of the historical eight-volume Atlas in the Austrian National Library.___"This is one of the finest collections of 17th century cartographical prints and drawings in existence. Joan Blaeu's original 'Atlas Maior' (Great Atlas) from the 1660s was substantially expanded into something of a personal world geo-encyclopaedia in the following decade by the Amsterdam lawyer, Laurens van der Hem, while continuing a visual style established by Blaeu.

The gargantuan ~50 volume series -- housed today in the Austrian National Library in Vienna -- includes more than 2400 maps, charts, sketches and birds-eye-views of towns, buildings and harbours, seascapes and landscapes, with the occasional portrait of significant historical figures."

As we find water scarcity becoming a reality, especially here in California where we face another dry year, may we take a minute this World Water Day to raise awareness about the most important substance on Earth - potable water.

Happy World Water Day! Thank you, +WWF  #worldwaterday  

Celebrate #WorldWaterDay with us!

Whether it’s solid, liquid or gas, water is essential: It keeps us alive. It guards our health and our planet’s. Water is also at the heart of our food and energy supply, and it works hard! In fact, it was probably used to build the screen you’re looking at.

Even if you take care of it, water’s in everything and everyone uses a lot of it. We’re working to protect freshwater ecosystems and improve water access, efficiency and allocation for people and nature. → http://panda.org/waterday___As we find water scarcity becoming a reality, especially here in California where we face another dry year, may we take a minute this World Water Day to raise awareness about the most important substance on Earth - potable water.

I have posted this wonderful mid-century Folk Hero map before, but Vox gives it an especially nice showcase here with a magnifier, enlargement, zoomed-in views, and a list of every folk hero included on the map.

The artist, William Gropper (1897 - 1977), is an equally fascinating study. Born to a working-class family, Gropper identified with labor movements throughout his life. At age 6, he was covering New York sidewalks with chalk drawings. He began his formal art instruction at age 13, and after high school was accepted to the Parsons New York School of Fine and Applied Arts. He later worked as a cartoonist for the New York Tribune and Vanity Fair as well as radical publications such as Rebel Worker and Daily Worker. His art seems to capture the essence and unseen detail of Americana and America.

It is said that Bucephalus was so wild that no one else but the world's greatest warrior, Alexander the Great, could tame him. When Bucephalus was lost in the country of Uscii, Alexander commanded that his horse be returned lest he ravage the whole country "with fire and sword." Bucephalus was promptly returned.

Below is the heroic story of Alexander the Great and Bucephalus' conquests, brought to you by the amazing, +Dave Shapiro 

Find more on the taming of Bucephalus here: http://goo.gl/6nMOcS

The Death of Bucephalus

Educated by Aristotle, Alexander of Macedon (Alexander the Great) continued the conquest of Greece initiated by his father Philip and expanded the empire. His aspiration was the total conquest of the world. At that time, the known world was significantly limited by the knowledge of the day. Aristotle taught the geography of the world based on the map by Herodotus drawn in the 5th century B.C.E. (See the map.) The belief was that a large river (or sea) surrounded all of the continents. Alexander had intended to thrust south and east before turning toward Europe. 

Alexander reached northern Africa, conquering Egypt and becoming pharaoh before turning to the Persian Empire - the largest, most powerful of the day. His intent was to drive through the Persian Empire into India and, upon reaching the sea, sail to southern Africa, ride the Nile north and then conquer Europe. 

Alexander was a tremendous strategist both politically and on the battlefield. Very often, after conquering an area he would retain the native leadership of the area simply incorporating the area into his empire. Alexander attempted to introduce Hellenistic cultural values into the areas he ruled. He constructed scores of libraries.

When just a boy he tamed a black stallion that he named Bucephalus. He was devoted to the horse and became an expert rider. When he began his conquest, Alexander introduced new concepts to the cavalry. Prior to Alexander, battles in Mediterranean and the Middle East were somewhat staged affairs. Battles were fought on a plain and the armies of the opposing sides would line up, facing each other and then march forward. Alexander altered that forever. 

For Alexander, cavalry became a dynamic tool. Rather than the line-up and advance plan, Alexander would race his cavalry back and forth in the alley between the two opposing armies creating great clouds of dust. He would then order his infantry to march forward, suddenly appearing out of the dust cloud. Meanwhile his cavalry would split into three parts. Two sections would attempt to ride off only to return behind the enemy, encircling and crushing them. The third group would charge directly into the stationary infantry units creating greater chaos as the infantry units attempted to escape being trampled.

This juggernaut allowed him to conquer Babylon and then town after town fell until he ruled the entire Persian Empire. Then he turned to India and that is where the problems began. Traveling with an army numbering more than 150,000 he effectually had a mobile city. In addition to the army, there were teachers, architects, engineers and other support positions. Eventually Alexander reached the Hindu Kush area where the mountains stopped any further advance so he turned south.

In 326 B.C.E. Alexander reached the Punjab and confronted King Porus. That he fought Porus at the Battle of Hydaspes is not disputed however, the result of the battle and just about everything else is disputed. The two armies lined up across each other on opposing banks of the Hydaspes river. Two factors hampered Alexander. First Porus was a great military strategist and had matched Alexander’s maneuvers at each turn. The second problem was the monsoons. The river was swollen and fast moving and the ground was so wet that the ‘dust cloud’ tactic was impossible. (Note: the actual site of the battle is believed to be just south of the city of Jhelum, Pakistan today.) 

Based on what little information has survived, the following is a quick description of the battle. Alexander split 6000 infantry and 5000 cavalry from his main force, traveled 27 km north to ford the river. Expecting this, Porus sent one of his sons and a significant force searching for just such a feint. By the time Porus’s troops located Alexander’s army, they  had already crossed. The Indian unit was eliminated. Alexander advanced toward Porus’s main force. 

Porus had 200+ elephant war machines lined along the riverfront. When Alexander attacked Porus’s army from the rear, his main force attempted to cross the river. Boxed in, the Indian army attempted to explode out in every direction. The battle would prove to be the bloodiest, costliest of any of Alexander’s battles. It is estimated that Alexander lost almost 10% of his army in this single battle. The single thing Alexander valued most was his horse and in the Battle of Hydaspes, Bucephalus was killed. So who won?

This has been debated for centuries. Those that argue for Alexander’s victory, point to the two cities established on opposite sides of the river. One is named Bucephala and the other is Nicaea (Greek for ‘victory’). Those that suggest Porus won point to the fact that Porus remained King and Alexander advanced no further; he immediately began the long return to Babylon. There is another group that suggests that Alexander barely defeated Porus and discovered that Porus’ army was not the strongest in India. Had he continued, Alexander would have faced the significantly larger forces of the Nanda Dynasty. 

Porus had demonstrated that the Phalanx and the various cavalry tactics employed by Alexander would not work well in the hilly countryside of northwest India. Alexander required open, flat plains. He never advanced beyond the Indus River.

The influence that Alexander had on the world of his time, cannot be exaggerated. The construction of libraries, the introduction of science, the values of Hellenistic culture and much, much more were the lasting gifts of his conquests. Alexander was 33 years old when he died. 

Even today, the influence of Alexander is still felt. The name ‘Alexander’ and its variations, is one of the most popular boys names. (#1 in Russia, #3 in Canada, #6 in the U.S.). There are a score of cities named for him. But what of Bucephalus? There are many monuments to the stallion and even a special marker in Pakistan marking his resting place.___It is said that Bucephalus was so wild that no one else but the world's greatest warrior, Alexander the Great, could tame him. When Bucephalus was lost in the country of Uscii, Alexander commanded that his horse be returned lest he ravage the whole country "with fire and sword." Bucephalus was promptly returned.

“We’ve learned new ways of doing things,” he says. “In the past, we used the Roman-legion, hierarchical, triangle structure. But Google and the tech volunteers we work with organize in different ways—ways more like what you see with open source projects like Linux, with more or less one manager and then a bunch of equal peers. That can have profound implications for the humanitarian field.”___Polycarbonate encased Android tablets that can be disinfected by dipping in chlorine help doctors in the high-risk zone retrieve medical information to help the fight Ebola.

"Water infrastructure is "the single biggest vulnerability we're facing in Southern California," according to U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Lucy Jones, who oversaw development of Garcetti's earthquake proposals. Safeguarding the system is essential, the mayor argues, to prevent businesses from shutting down and a "mass evacuation" by people who lack water to drink, shower or flush toilets in the aftermath of a severe earthquake on the southern San Andreas fault.

The financial demands of earthquake-proofing L.A.'s water system create a political conundrum for the mayor. He has stressed his commitment to carry out his entire plan — both the retrofitting of buildings and improvements to water and telecommunications infrastructure.
