Dan Thompson2,147Here is my circle of writers.  My suggestion to you new G+ folks is to add the entire circle as its own circle, i.e. "Dan's Writing Circle".  Over time, move your favorites over into your own growing array of circles.In particular, though, I'd say pay attention to John Ward, Evo Terra, Nathan Lowell, Brook Johnson, and Jefferson Smith.2014-02-22 19:51:53249212CC G+

+Elizabeth Therese Niwel  tagged me in a #fivedayquest .

Today is Sunday, there have been very little comings and goings. But let me tell you anyways.

Day 2
 
The bathroom had a small leak which continues. We have decided to turn off the mains and figure out what to do at a later date. Pshaw. Drips just once in a few hours.

Got up late and stumbled into the Kitchen to make some chai. No this is not chai tea.... its different. For those who want the recipe, here it is : http://goo.gl/svySE9

+E.E. Giorgi has very kindly offered to redo my amateur attempts at the cover for Orange Rock. I gratefully accepted. The first sample she showed me was kinda amazing.

+Elizabeth Therese Niwel  tagged me in a #fivedayquest , who was in turn shanghaied honored by a tag by +Bob Schlette.

While I've been wondering if there is much to write about, it may be a good idea to bore regale you people with the happenings which happen on a daily basis.

Day 1
 
Been jam packed with action. The bathroom had a small leak... in the inlet pipe which connects to the flush tank. So small that it has a droplet every few hours. The plumber is scratching his head. +Gita Jaisinghani is on the job. I try to add my two bits.

An idea which has been festering in my mind annoys me. I look up references and see that people have not really married the three technologies which seem to meld together to go into space with a lower cost and vitiating the use of fossil fuels (http://goo.gl/HJZYsB). I decide to make a story on my blog and post it. Itp... more »

Transform concept : From +Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). This is a model of a non-static table which would transform to your requirements. Is close to a concept of a non-biological chair-dog in Dune.

Article Extract: Just imagine if your sofa could sense how you’re feeling when you get home from work. To stave off marathon TV sessions, it could transform from a cushioned pile of pillows to a rigid lounge as encouragement to go outside and move around. This exact shape-shifting scenario is an unlikely reality, but a new project from MIT’s Tangible Media Group envisions more realistically what might happen when our furniture is finally able to respond to us.

The team describes Transform as a table, though you’d have to be hard-pressed to eat dinner at it. The rectangular object is made of 1,152 plastic pins that are controlled by individual microprocessors thatsit u... more »

Architects Give the Classic Chess Set a Radical Makeover : While looking at the +Smithsonian Magazine site for exhibitions, I came across this amazing design. While it does not clarify if this game is playable, it is beautiful nevertheless.

Article extract: The Staunton set defined the game we know today. Recently, a group of young architects were challenged to redefine the game, invited by Los Angeles gallery and storefront Jai & Jai to create and exhibit their own chess sets. First spotted over at Architizer, some of these sets go beyond designing pieces to redesign the timeless battle between light and dark - and a couple deconstructed it completely. “The World is Flat” by Laurel Consuelo Broughton, for example, transformed the 64-square board into a globe to create a dynamic, edgeless game to wouldn't look out of place on Star Trek.

While astronomers look at the lunar eclipse (already started) : A whole new drama is ongoing. NASA's  LADEE may well crash into the moon soon, or may get affected by the lunar eclipse and it's propulsion system could freeze and burst. Though current predictions are that it will survive. Scientists know that LADEE's days are numbered. But it has already achieved it's mission profile. (See more on the eclipse here from +NASA : http://goo.gl/pXBsyL )

Article Extract: Scientists have no delusions about the fate of NASA's LADEE robotic probe, which has been exploring the shroud of dust and the trace gases that surround the Moon. On April 21, if not sooner, the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer will crash into the surface of the Moon and vaporise. But before its demise, scientists hope to break new ground by flying LADEE literally just above the ground.... more »

I was late on the plant-based alien. I would assume the classification would be a little confusing. This is an alien on a methane-based sea. Low gravity on a moon attached to a gas giant has led to it's ability to use photosynthesis which is not exactly like a plant. Please note due to the lack of true (human light perception) light, aliens often use false color.... it's all about perception.

The photoelectric sensors only sense light.... it has no real predators.

Sorry for the delayed post.

Railguns : There are a few of these in the testing phase. Now the U.S. Navy has one which can be mounted on ships, which can be launched at over Mach 7. Railguns were first built in 1944, but the size and engineering was daunting. Using just electromagnetism, one could shoot projectiles at amazing speeds. more recently, NASA has been toying with the idea of melding a railgun with a scramjet. (See http://goo.gl/IIiBeJ).

Railgun Explained: A railgun comprises a pair of parallel conducting rails, along which a sliding armature is accelerated by the electromagnetic effects of a current that flows down one rail, into the armature and then back along the other rail.

The massive railgun that needs just one sailor to operate it relies on the electromagnetic energy of the Lorentz force—the combination of electric and magnetic forces on a point charge—for power. The Navy likes thewea... more »

Cats control humans : Well, this is not really news. Any cat owner knows this is true. And science has already shown us how the cat's cry is very similar to a human baby's cry. The same demanding vocalization is seen by researchers. Though that is not where it stops. Some of the findings of The Secret Life of Cats undertaken by the BBC folks is amusing if not amazing :)

Article Extract: If you've ever wondered who's in control, you or your cat, it's obvious. It's your cat. Household cats exercise this control with a certain type of urgent-sounding, high-pitched meow. This meow is actually a purr mixed with a high-pitched cry. While people usually think of cat purring as a sign of happiness, some cats make this purr-cry sound when they want to be fed.

Solicitation purring : Previous research has shown similarities between cat cries and human infant... more »

+NovoPulp: The Speculative Fiction Anthology
Our First Anthology Published Exclusively by G+ Authors and Artists

NovoPulp was conceived by +Ted Ewen in 2012. He saw the individual efforts of struggling writers putting their work out there and thought a volume of work by G+ authors and artists might be worth pursuing. Two years later we have published our first book and plan to publish one anthology a year of the very best speculative fiction G+ can provide.

http://www.NovoPulp.com/store

In the 2013/2014 anthology we have:

Stories from:
+Lacerant Plainer, +Micha Fire +Charles Barouch +H David Blalock +Laston Kirkland, +James Calbraith, +M Stange, +David Grigg, +Michael Matula, +Rich Larson, and myself.

Rosetta the comet chaser : I posted earlier about the ESA Rosetta being awakened after a long 'sleep' period (http://goo.gl/GWjGYo). The comet chaser is now set to make history as the first robotic spacecraft to make a landing on a comet streaking though space.

Article Extract: It has been a long trip for Rosetta. On March 2, 2004, the European Space Agency probe was launched to rendezvous with a comet streaking along at 24,600 mph. Scientists hope that Rosetta will be a codebreaker like its namesake, the ancient tablet that gave scholars the key to deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphics.

Rosetta spent the first seven years of its mission getting into a position where it could eventually intercept its target, Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. After four gravity assists and two asteroid flybys, mission engineers sent the spacecraft coasting on a 957-day hibernation in deep... more »

The mediocre Barrier Reef : Is what has been predicted with continued acidification of the water bodies on our planet. While Coral reefs are shrinking rapidly, the warnings are dire and the 'rainforests of the seas' are in a bitter struggle for survival. Read about Symbiodinium and how they are related (and essential) to the living coral reefs.

Article Extract: Coral reefs cover less than one-tenth of one per cent of the area of the world's oceans — but they support more than 25 per cent of all creatures that live in the oceans. The Great Barrier Reef lost half of its coral cover in the 27 years between 1985 and 2012.

The Great Barrier Reef stretches some 2600 km off the coast of Queensland, with over 2900 individual reefs and some 900 islands. This is made of trillions of tiny animals known as 'coral polyps'. Each polyp is a cylindrical animal usually onlya... more »

The Microbial world : In a number of senses, the Earth belongs to microbes. They have existed since life was first here. And they continue to exist and thrive on our planet. They are most likely to survive any extinction event. We depend on them for life (see link on gut microbiota) and living things depend on them. More than we can imagine. They are our true overlords. 

A teaspoon of dirt contains 50 billion microbes, more than seven times the number of people on Earth. Yet despite such abundance, scientists know little about the microbial ecosystem. We understand less about the bugs in our home, for example, than the animals in the deepest ocean trenches. We know even less about their impact on us. (http://goo.gl/ckf8Z6)

Astrobotic Techonology recently tested the Moon landing tech. They are one of the participants in the +Google Lunar XPRIZE and some of the robotic technology they are working on is quite path breaking. +Astrobotic Technology has it's website here : http://www.astrobotic.com

More on the Google Lunar Xprize: http://www.googlelunarxprize.org/teams/astrobotic

From +Popular Science : It's not easy to land a robot on the moon. Only the U.S., the former Soviet Union, and China have succeeded; other nations have only managed to make debris-strewn craters with their landing vehicles.

Eighteen privately funded groups, however, think they can safely land a privately funded spacecraft in 2015, rove around the lunar surface, and claim tens of millions of dollars in prize money for the feat. To that end, a Pittsburgh-based company called Astrobiotic has released athree-min... more »

A world without borders : Is it possible? I am a proponent of a world without borders. We were born into a country, which we adopted. It kept out others. Who were not us, but had their own identity. Over time, you realize people from all over the world are your friends, your acquaintances, maybe even your soulmates.

Does it make sense to keep out people...we are all humans and our fates are extricably linked to each other, be it by economics, global warming, the future of our species. Will we ever take the next step and become one planet, united to meet the challenges that we will inevitably have to face....

How fast is Spaceship Earth traveling through space? : The answer is not as simple as one would assume. Because all motion is relative. So it could be a variety of different answers. Depending on the frame of reference, the answer could be zero or a variety of different answers. We do know that everything is moving. The Earth, the Sun, the Milky way, the local galactic cluster..... all of it. Read on to look at the motion from different perspectives....

Article Extract: The problem with motion is that “true motion” doesn’t exist.  The best we can do is talk about “relative motion” and that requires something else to reference against.  What you consider to be stationary (what you chose to define your movement with respect to) is a matter of personal choice.  The universe isn’t bothered one way or the other.

Weirdly scary and quite something to watch : The Tsunami triggered by Tuesday's earthquake in Chile (8.2 on the Richter scale) is shown in this animation from PTWC. The animation shows simulated tsunami wave propagation for 30 hours followed by an "energy map" showing the maximum open-ocean wave heights over that period and the forecasted tsunami runup heights on the coastlines.

Article Extract: The tsunami caused only limited damage. But, whenever a tsunami is generated, it's not just coastal stretches in the immediate vicinity that are at risk. Tsunami waves can cross oceans, sometimes arriving as much as a day after the event that caused the waves.

You can see the model forecast of how the tsunami from the Chilean earthquake was expected to have moved across the Pacific. The forecast was done by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, a branch of the NationalW... more »

Zebra Stripes in the Van Allen Belt : The Van Allen Belt is a plasma (charged particles) which are held in place by the Earth's magnetic field. Most of the charged energetic particles are thought to come from solar winds and cosmic rays. These radiation belts often damage sensitive satellites, but is part of the Earth's natural magnetic shield against harmful cosmic radiation. According to new research, the' Zebra Stripe' pattern observed in the Van Allen Belt may be due to the Earth's rotation, rather than due to geomagnetic storms on the Sun as earlier theorized.

Article Extract: A weird zebra-stripe pattern discovered in Earth's inner Van Allen radiation belt is generated by the planet's rotation, according to new research. The study may provide new insights into the complicated dynamics of similar belts around other planets. It also overturns previously held... more »

Material science, nanotechnology and biology meet : They really do. For some time now, since the time I read Isaac Asimov's 'Innerspace', one has been reading about the idea of self-assembly, of creating living materials and of medical nanotechnology and nanomachines.... something which would change the world as we know it. Forever. While it is still a decade away, work is on to get to a stage where at the very small scale, we will be able to manipulate these tiny machines. h/t to +Corina Marinescu for bringing up Richard Feynman in a post, which got me thinking of this....

The U.S. Quietly gives up control of the internet : Last month, I had read this article which talked about how the U.S. had plans of giving up the internet. While they 'definitely don't want to give it to the U.N., it seems like it's unclear who will control the internet in the near future.

From Popsci: Last month, the United States announced some very big news in a very boring way. The U.S. government is relinquishing its last official control over the internet. The phrasing chosen by the Department of Commerce announces its intent "to transition key Internet domain name functions to the global multistakeholder community."

Here's what that means. The U.S. government is giving up control over the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). ICANN is the body that coordinates unique names for websites, making it responsible forth... more »

A poet once said, 'The whole universe is in a glass of wine.' We will probably never know in what sense he meant it, for poets do not write to be understood. But it is true that if we look at a glass of wine closely enough we see the entire universe. There are the things of physics: the twisting liquid which evaporates depending on the wind and weather, the reflection in the glass; and our imagination adds atoms. The glass is a distillation of the earth's rocks, and in its composition we see the secrets of the universe's age, and the evolution of stars. What strange array of chemicals are in the wine? How did they come to be? There are the ferments, the enzymes, the substrates, and the products. There in wine is found the great generalization; all life is fermentation. Nobody can discover the chemistry of wine without discovering, as did Louis Pasteur, the cause of much disease. How vivid is... more »

The Bigelow inflatable space habitats : One company took an elegantly simple idea and ran with it. Today Bigelow Aerospace is not only on the cutting edge of space station habitat tech, they are actually looking at making modular and connectable habitats. Fascinating indeed. Earlier post here http://goo.gl/fQRLfD, and an even earlier post here : http://goo.gl/ZbjD2w

Trash-talking scrabble playing robot : Victor is a bad player of scrabble. Intentionally. Students at Carnegie Mellon University are studying how robot-human interactions could evolve, and what are the dynamics when a robot is more human-like in it's interactions.

Article Extract: The robotics department at Carnegie Mellon University created a robot named Victor who can play Scrabble, just not very well. But that doesn't stop him from blaming his opponents for his double-word-score shortcomings.

Victor has a head with an animated face complete with glasses, blond hair, and even a collegiate soul patch, but his fiberglass body lacks arms. He can move, look at the board, and talk to people. He sits at a table at the lounge in CMU's Gates computer science building waiting for a human to challenge him to a match. Just don't expect any friendly banter.

Just as Neil deGrasse Tyson said in Cosmos scientists are not afraid to be wrong or admit that they don’t know. As Isaac Asimov once said, "The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!', but 'That's funny ..." Many of us love NASA so much because they constantly work on the frontier of knowledge and ignorance. NASA constantly surprises us by discovering new worlds or landing on a moon of another planet whose distance is unfathomable, even though it’s still within our own Solar System.

Cosmos is an excellent example of how science is more than just data and facts, but often can be poetic. It’s a reason to fight hard and show your support for investments in science. NASA is one such investment. Tell Congress you want them to increase NASA's budget. Take action today: http://www.penny4nasa.org/take-action/ more »

the "Big Pig Rig" en route to London!
» www.scribblegraph.me/london-stationery-show/

No, not me... but some of my artwork will be over there! Artline has a stand at the London Stationery Show, April 1st & 2nd (stand M709) and they will have a few scribbles on display. I sent the pigs over to help Grace get ready for the show. Grace is the Shachihata (EU) go-to for all things social. If you're in London, you should make time to pop in and say hello to her - she's super friendly, and I want to know what happens when people walk up to her and say hello from Ashlan in Australia. That would be swell! In fact if you do make it there, add me on Twitter and tweet me a photo of you with the Artline stand, and I'll mail you a print:)

"Windcatchers" - Science fiction images : I like the way this is imagined. Not very out there, and at the same time it has the feeling of a creature one would expect. Though the inspiration is from insects, clearly. Illustrator David Aguilar melds art and science to imagine how alien creatures might adapt to their environments. I find David Aguilar's art a work in progress, though one would have to say it seems like just a jump away from something truly brilliant.

Article Extract: In his latest book, Alien Worlds, Aguilar presents eight worlds, all modeled after Earth-like planets and moons that actually exist in the Milky Way galaxy. Aguilar projects different temperature, gravity, light and water conditions onto these planets—all educated inferences based on the many stages Earth has gone through in its history. In “Ocean World,” for example, the planet’s surface ispredomi... more »

Thanks to +Richard Green and +Chad Haney for reminding me about trigonometry. While I do not really think Pi day is a thing, I recently was asked by a friend to help his kid with Math (especially trig).

I remember asking the kid.... why do you not like trig. He said "I don't think it's going to be useful." I went into how one can find the height of his wall.... all one had to do is understand the angle the hypotenuse made and the length from the wall to the place on the floor where he had made his imaginary triangle. He enjoyed this immensely. I then asked if he knew what Pi was. He was nonplussed.... It was a ratio right? I showed him these gifs. It was nothing but the radius draped across the circumference 3.141... times... That was Pi. How did this relate to Cos and Sin? The graph shows just how.... The unit circle he had been taught was suddenly... more »

I am trying to raise awareness and money for the Alzheimer's society.  My Dad is in the advanced stages.

Alzheimer’s: Dad carries on and lives with it.
 
I thought I would follow on from last week and tell you how I think my Dad has coped and deals with his Alzheimer’s.
I’ll just mention a snippet of his life when he was a little younger.  I have to mention his brother, my Uncle.
Dad had an older brother called Chas.  My sister and I always called him ‘Nunk’, Dad said it was a London......sorry, “It’s a Landon fing” apparently it is a nickname for uncle.  My Dad’s family had this silly tradition that the men had to have the initials C.W.C. I’ve no idea why!  I’m the first male not to have those initials, thanks to Dad.  Who knows what I would have ended being called!  Dad and Mum had whittled it down to a few names eventually theysettled on Stephen, because a... more »

Dear g++d people of google + , friends!

I am writing this post to help a very dear friend here on G+.
I know +Mara Mascaro since the beta of this platform, as many of you out there know her as well. She is one of the nicest person i met here, and she needs your help.

To make the long story short, Mara had a small 'accident' last year, she fell on  her nose and went under surgery in her country. As it turned out later, the surgery was useless and damaged her nose to the point where she can barely breathe anymore.
She is in a bad shape today, due to the lack of sleep and losing hope that she can ever get fixed this.
She spent a lot of time and money on consulting every specialist in Italy, whom were not able to help her, and on top of it are rude or simply just cancel an appointment without even telling her.
While they all admit that the infamous... more »

The Science behind the Eternal Shelf Life of Honey : Modern archeologists, excavating ancient Egyptian tombs, have often found something unexpected amongst the tombs’ artifacts: pots of honey, thousands of years old, and yet still preserved. Through millennia, the archeologists discover, the food remains unspoiled, an unmistakable testament to the eternal shelf-life of honey. Honey can remain preserved in a completely edible form, and while you wouldn’t want to chow down on raw rice or straight salt, one could ostensibly dip into a thousand year old jar of honey and enjoy it, without preparation, as if it were a day old. Moreover, honey’s longevity lends it other properties–mainly medicinal–that other resilient foods don’t have.

“Honey in its natural form is very low moisture. Very few bacteria or microorganisms can survive in an environment like that, they just die.They’re smoth... more »

The Crabster : Despite the silly-sounding name, this is actually a pretty cool submersible. With it's ability to map the area around it, move across all kinds of obstacles and can ostensibly achieve a depth of 656 feet. I found the movements of this robotic sub very reminiscent of a spider. Plus it has the advantage of being almost autonomous.

Article Extract: The world’s largest and deepest underwater-walking robot, the 1,400-pound Crabster CR200, was designed to scuttle along the seafloor like a monstrous crustacean. Its possible vocations include scientific explorer, commercial surveyor, and treasure hunter. In fast currents too dangerous for scuba divers, it steadies itself on six legs by putting its head down, raising its rear, and facing the flow head-on. It has 11 cameras, including an acoustic one to see through cloudy, turbulent waters.

The Cr200 crawls on sixa... more »

How fast is Spaceship Earth traveling through space? : The answer is not as simple as one would assume. Because all motion is relative. So it could be a variety of different answers. Depending on the frame of reference, the answer could be zero or a variety of different answers. We do know that everything is moving. The Earth, the Sun, the Milky way, the local galactic cluster..... all of it. Read on to look at the motion from different perspectives....

Article Extract: The problem with motion is that “true motion” doesn’t exist.  The best we can do is talk about “relative motion” and that requires something else to reference against.  What you consider to be stationary (what you chose to define your movement with respect to) is a matter of personal choice.  The universe isn’t bothered one way or the other.

Relative to the Earth: The Earth turns on its axis (youmay have heard... more »

Making use of Carbon and CO2 : The amount of carbon emissions that are in the form of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere has got some scientists thinking creatively. Why not use it? While trees are natural Carbon sinks, it would be an elegant solution to capture the carbon and use it in manufacturing. It's not even tech which is very far away, in fact most of it is even being tested today and some of the technologies are in use....

Article Extract: Forget Storing Carbon. Why Not Capture It And Make It Into Something Useful? : Sooner rather than later, stopping the emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases will not be enough to stave off global climate change, and we'll need to begin pulling carbon out of the air. For many in the chemical and manufacturing industries, carbon dioxide, or other simple carbon-based chemicals, is a core raw material used for makingeve... more »

A fellow sufferer posted this : No, I'm not ignoring you. I just lost internet for a day.... what was really awesome was the response I got from the service provider..... (All MTNL employees are from a large public sector).

Me: Hello maam.... my internet is not working...

MTNL customer service: Oh? Is it completely dead or is it coming and going.

Me: The Internet light is off, though the DSL and the WLAN light is on.

MTNL Service: Where are you calling from?

(I tell her)

MTNL Service: Oh there is an issue in that locality. I believe they are fixing it.

Me: Any idea by when it would be fixed?

MTNL Service: Who knows. You could get lucky.

I tell +Gita Jaisinghani... she tells me that they are probably fixing it. MTNL people couldn't be bothered to fib anyway. I agree....

A must read.

"The man who wore a sanitary pad" created a cheap way of producing sanitary pads for women. It took him 4 and a half years and almost cost him his marriage. The resulting product is a machine "by the women, for the women, and to the women". 

Funny in parts, thought provoking, heart touching, one of the best things I've read in a while.
