Hm, informative, but feels liberally-bent (I claim ignorance though, and only say this because I get a positive feeling about the law after reading it).  Then again, I look for spin in the media so often now that my calibration might be off ;-).  Anyone have some input for me?

HIGGS!

Today, a huge breakthrough was made in physics. And it all rests on the seemingly simple graph below: it shows the detection of what is almost certainly the Higgs boson, a fundamental particle that is predicted to be critical in giving other particles mass!

I suspect that graph may well be in physics books for decades to come:

The bottom line is that two independent detectors at the Large Hadron Collider have found a new particle at an energy of 126 GeV (about 125 times the mass of a proton) with a confidence level of - get this - 99.9999%. This new particle is consistent with predictions made by the Standard Model of particle physics of what the Higgs should look like. This discovery is so strong that scientists are essentially saying it must be the Higgs boson.

This is a breakthrough in modern physics, a monumental first step in understanding one... more »

There is no question that melting ice sheets and glaciers will be the dominant contributor to the rising sea levels in the future as melting accelerates with rising global temperatures. But I thought it really interesting to read about the sheer amount of 18 trillion tonnes of water which have been removed from underground aquifers without being replaced over the past half century. This accounts for a rise of 5cm of sea levels since 1961 and did exceed by twofold the effect of global ice melting and thermal expansion of sea water!

The exact opposite of what advertising sells us.

A human worth being lives by function before form.

The authors looked at the relationship between self-esteem and product choice (among lamps and calculators) when one option is more physically attractive and the other more functional. The authors found that participants who had completed a prior self-affirming task were less likely to choose the highly aesthetic option, but instead chose based on function.

"Note that conservatives are pessimists, and radicals are optimists, about human nature, which is probably neither so good nor so bad as they would like to believe, and may be not so much nature as early training and environment." -Will Durant, on Aristotle's political philosophy (in The Story of Philosophy)

Your Work Ethic Depends on Dopamine Levels Across the Brain
By Jamie Condliffe, +Gizmodo

Some of us work hard, others are slackers—and for a long time the reason behind radically different work ethics has been a mystery. But new research reveals that dopamine levels in three different areas of the brain influence our willingness to work.

After some illuminating discussion on Facebook and some more research (and thought) of my own, I've come to the (admittedly weak) conclusion that humans are certainly affecting Earth's climate via the accelerating use of combustible fossil fuels. The next question is, "what should be do about it, if anything, and when?"

What we might be seeing over the next 100 years, in a nutshell:

(informative summary blog post)

Thoughts?

Edit: I’m pretty sure our models of global population predict something on the order of a steady-state 10 billion people before too long (based on historic trends, the observed phenomenon that well-developed countries have lower than 2-children-per-couple birthrates, and the fact that underdeveloped countries are quickly developing).

Google's Delusions of Openness

(Warning: This is a long Essay in Response to recent Utterings of King Google aka Mr Sergey Brin)

"Openness" is one of the many Fetishes of Tech-People and Companies, usually attached to equally great Rubber Words like "Standards" and "Access".

Usually these Words are mostly used when one of the Giants has a serious Market Disadvantage wants equal access to our Money. Apple loved to complain about Microsoft's lack of "Openness", until they had their own little Monopoly etc.

[A request]

I'm usually on the giving-advice/information/thoughts side of Google+ activity, but I'm coming up against a bit of a quandary, and I'd like to ask for some input from those wiser than I.

I want a job where I can do new things all of the time.

I don’t want to be just an engineer, because that means I’ll have to do engineering all of the time. I don’t want to be a writer, because that means I’ll have to do that all the time… but I like both of those things, along with chemistry, physics, math, etc. I’ve always been a dabbler, and I’ve always done an at-least-acceptable job at everything I’ve tried. Is there a job that requires a renaissance person? (I’d say “renaissance man,” but I’m trying to get away from gender-specific phrases that don’t need to be gender-specific. Helloooo Californian liberal education!)
For additional in... more »

Incredibly beautiful:
Salvador Dali - Destino. Walt Disney (2003) HD1080

I got this from +Matthew Nieters, and had to share it with everyone.

After having sat and thought more about this, I wonder whether I'd feel so moved if I hadn't known it was created by Dali and Disney.
