I'm doomed! An article stating the obvious, next than just feeling not that superb there are some minor and some severe long term health effects associated with lack of sleep.
"In one study, healthy young men prevented from sleeping more than four hours a night for six nights in a row ended up with insulin and blood sugar levels like those of people deemed prediabetic. "

I think this is great news that companies no longer can patent any human gene that occurs naturally!

Cons and pros about sequencing your own genome and what you can actually right now at this moment do with these kind of information/data. Quite a nice read I'd say.

Swedish male train drivers have been wearing skirts to work: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-22828150
Why? It's hot, and shorts are banned.
Do you ever think dress codes are unfair towards men or women?

With all this new photo magic at +Google+ (Auto Awesome they call tha) does anyone know how far back Google will be optimising my pictures? Will it only include my "auto backup" folder or also start analysing my other albums and start doing things like photoboot and motion movies off all my uploaded pictures?
Also, is there anyway to influence this behaviour? As in to change picture order in the photoboot, add another one, remove one etc etc.
+Trey Ratcliff you seem to be have some sort of G+ inside information.... do you know anything about this?

Really admire Bill Gates his long term vision on health care and health care spending. Great vision he and his foundation have.
"Whenever you can eradicate one of these infectious disease, you get these exponential benefits. Polio’s the extreme example where we’re near the magic number of zero, so the $2 billion that the year spends protecting kids against getting polio, the day you know you’re at zero — you have to really know you’re there — then you save the $2 billion. And, you know, that happened for smallpox. Nobody spends any money on smallpox unless they worry about a bio-terrorist recreating it. It’s financially the best thing that ever happened because we’re saving all that money forever after."

Only in Holland cyclist can manage to delay the renovation of on of the most important museum in the country.
"The renovation, which cost 375m Euros (£320m), had been delayed by flooding, asbestos and a cycle access dispute."

Join us for another Science HOA, brought to you by +ScienceSunday. An estimated 1% of the human genome codes for genes: those snippets of information that define us as individuals and as a species. What about the vast remainder? Is it the "dark matter" of biology or just "junk DNA"? You may recall the ENCODE project which made a splash in the news with the claim that 80% of the genome was functional. Now comes the push back, with scientists challenging that statement as an overreach. What is ENCODE? What does it tell us and perhaps as important, what does it not tell us? If you have any questions for our panel, please leave them on the Event page as always.
This +ScienceSunday panel discussion will be hosted by +Rajini Rao, +Buddhini Samarasinghe and +Scott Lewis. Joining us will be +Ian Bosdet and +Josh Witten, two scientists that have written extensively about this topic. We... more »

Great piece of infographics by the +The Guardian! They visualised all the mortality data of the last century from all over the world and put it in some fancy infographics. A proper 6 by 2 meters print is also on show in the +Wellcome Collection.

Study from Microsoft Research in PNAS shows that when using public like data from Facebook you can build a whole profile about that person and can pretty accurately predict someone's race, religion and personality.
So be afraid off all these +Hello Kitty likers, they are instable ;-)

Interesting read about the pros and cons about working from home (thanks +Filipe Cadete for sharing this!) in the +The New York Times. In essence working from home promotes productivity and working at the office promotes creativity.
It's exciting to see how big tech companies like Google/Facebook and now also Yahoo try to make life at campus as great as possible to sort of getting you hooked on getting to work. Also by limiting your desk space and closing doors at work to increase serendipitous encounters.

Looks like a pretty simple way of running backend stuff on a cloud in a normal Python environment. Did anyone played around with #PiCloud do you like it? As they seem to run stuff in parallel does anyone has any input about how many concurrent jobs it is running for you in the background (as in if I ask to run a function 100.000 times how many are running at the same time?). Just being #curious here :-)

So if I'd use my awesome procrastination skills in the correct manner I could get things done while procrastination?!
“With this sort of appropriate task structure, the procrastinator becomes a useful citizen. Indeed, the procrastinator can even acquire, as I have, a reputation for getting a lot done.”
Wise words for a guy that took 17 years writing a book with only 92 pages lol

Interesting read by the Genomes Unzipped people about the different genetic ancestry testing companies available today and how the BBC, again, manage to not keep up with the standards they claim to behold. Read also the very interesting comments on the article as they shed more light onto the somewhat dodgy connection between the interviewer from the BBC and the owner of the company.

Boom, finally some sense about GM food that counteracts all the nonsense untruthful nonsense the anti-GM lobby is pushing into the debate.
"Genetically modified food should be grown and sold widely in Britain and consumer opposition to the technology is a “complete nonsense”, the Cabinet minister in charge of food and farming has said."

For all the people using +Google Drive to sync their scripts into the cloud the +Neutron Drive application is awesome!! It will give you full syntax highlighting and editing of your scripts in the cloud. Much better than the default viewer from Google Drive for scripts/LaTeX/plain text.

The Linear Book Scanner
While working on Google Book Search, Dany Qumsiyeh and Jeff Breidenbach created (and open-sourced!) a new way to scan books. It was prototyped on the cheap using a vacuum cleaner, some sheets of polished aluminum, and a bit of Python code. See it in action at Linear Book Scanner.

Research by the Nederlands Dagblad has shown that Max Havelaar Foundation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stichting_Max_Havelaar) is not paying a single penny more for the "fair-trade" products they buy from the farmers. Even more shockingly is that most farmers didn't even knew they are part of a "fair-trade" foundation that should give them a better price. Research from the new paper has shown that the additional money people spent on these "fair trade" products is actually spent on the organisation of the foundation. So-much for the world first fair-trade certification #FAIL or #FRAUD?!

First articles are published in the new +eLife journal. Do really like those "eLife digest" part that gives a laymen introduction into the field and the relevance of this current paper.
Another reason to click the link might actually be to read the paper that is actually kinda exciting as well if you want to live for ever ;-)

Scary privacy news from back home.... The government is seriously thinking about giving itself the opportunity to have access to any DNA related material hospitals or your gp has to fight crime. Of-course at the moment of introduction this would only be allowed for "serious" crimes but then again I think this is a dangerous move to make as it could seriously threaten the health of even the general public if people don't get treatment for some illnesses.

It's all in the chocolate!
"Chocolate consumption could hypothetically improve cognitive function not only in individuals but in whole populations. Could there be a correlation between a country’s level of chocolate consumption and its total number of Nobel laureates per capita? A tongue-in-cheek report from Columbia University’s Dr. Frank Messerli looks at the issue."
