The GMO debate needs more people like Pollan and Ronald.

These days Google+ gets overwhelmed with dodgy blogs lacking any kind of credible backing that are using fear to influence the GMO debate. Between all this noise it is great (thank you +The New Yorker) that some people, even if they are from opposite sides, talk to each other on a more mature level.

A must read article ( also do read the referenced articles ) for all that do engage in the debate here online!

Machine learning techniques are used to study overlap and influence of paintings. 

This overlap is achieved by comparing concepts that are present on the paintings. These concepts include everything from simple object description such as duck, frisbee, man, wheelbarrow to shades of colour to higher-level descriptions such as dead body, body of water, walking and so on. For each painting a vector of 3,000 concepts is determined. For each vector they searched for similar vectors using natural language techniques and a machine learning algorithm.

"The algorithm is also able to identify individual paintings that have influenced others. It picked out Georges Braque’s Man with a Violin and Pablo Picasso’s Spanish Still Life: Sun and Shadow, both painted in 1912 with a well-known connection as pictures that helped found the Cubist movement."

Have a look and play yourself at:  https://www.rijschoolvergelijker.nl/ 

Would be cool to get some feedback from people regarding our implementation and how this works for you!

The Dutch solution to stop people actively using their mobile on the bike: bribing! 

The gov developed an app that will lock your phone while biking (though it seems this is a manual procedure) and maps the distance you have been biking offline. The more you bike offline the better the odds to win things like a bike. Would be cool to see some data about that once people start logging themselves.

Markdown and Evernote. It is (sort off) finally there. 


Found this tool the other day that is making it possible to write simple Markdown documents (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Markdown)  that will convert into nice looking formatted Evernote notes. 

It seems all very new, but the basics are working great. I can write my stuff, it autocompiles (it is split-window) so I can see what I do and the results are autosynced to Evernote. 

Only problems I've had so-far is that when editing later in Evernote, the syncing back towards Marxico is inconsistent. Also, currently, the tools is using plain-old-http and no https, so I'd not use it for anything too sensitive (or on an open network).

Fascinating to read about how long and how much tech modern humans and Neanderthals exchanged. 

" The new dates suggest that the two species lived in Europe for up to 5,000 years. This backs the view of some archaeologists that relatively late advances in Neanderthal stone tool technologies and their use of jewellery were copied from modern humans."

The Domino Sugar Factory, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, once the largest sugar refinery in the world, has been one of the most recognizable buildings on the Brooklyn waterfront for more than a century. Ten years after the plant ceased operation, in 2004, its forty-foot-tall yellow sign is still legible, even from Manhattan.

In 2012, the photographer David Allee was given access to the ninety-thousand-square-foot Domino complex. Built in 1882, on the site of an earlier refinery that had burned down, the factory processed sugar cane from all over the world, and at one time it produced half of the sugar consumed in the United States.

The GMO debate needs more people like Pollan and Ronald.

These days Google+ gets overwhelmed with dodgy blogs lacking any kind of credible backing that are using fear to influence the GMO debate. Between all this noise it is great (thank you +The New Yorker) that some people, even if they are from opposite sides, talk to each other on a more mature level.

A must read article ( also do read the referenced articles ) for all that do engage in the debate here online!
