I really enjoy posting fun stuff here.  But this is serious.

Steve Easterbrook just finished writing a series of important posts on Azimuth, summarizing part of the IPCC report on climate change.  Here's a short version of his last post.  Pay attention!

--------------------------------------------------------------------

To stay below 2°C of warming, most fossil fuels must stay buried in the ground.

Perhaps the most profound advance since the previous IPCC report is a characterization of our global carbon budget. This is based on a finding that has emerged strongly from a number of studies in the last few years: the expected temperature change has a simple linear relationship with cumulative CO2 emissions since the beginning of the industrial era.

The chart is hard to follow, but the main idea is this: whatever we do, the results tend tolie... more »

NASA's Kepler Mission Discovers First Earth-Size Planet In The 'Habitable Zone' of Another Star!
April 17, 2014: This artist's concept depicts Kepler-186f, the first validated Earth-size planet to orbit a distant star in the habitable zone. Using NASA's Kepler Space Telescope, astronomers have discovered the first Earth-size planet orbiting a star in the "habitable zone"—the range of distance from a star where liquid water might pool on the surface of an orbiting planet. The discovery of Kepler-186f confirms that planets the size of Earth exist in the habitable zone of stars other than our sun.

While planets have previously been found in the habitable zone, they are all at least 40 percent larger in size than Earth and understanding their makeup is challenging. Kepler-186f is more reminiscent of Earth.

Literally eating people alive : No kidding. We have heard of Naeglaria fowleri, the brain eating amoeba found in water. Now there is new research that shows that the parasite Entamoeba histolytica , which was earlier thought to kill human cells by toxins, actually eats them while they are still alive.

Article Extract: It used to be thought that the parasite Entamoeba histolytica killed human cells with toxins and only ate them once they were dead--and that during its meals, it would eat cells by engulfing them whole, like other amoebas. But a new study shows that these parasites instead chomp on human cells while they are still alive, taking little bites until the cells die and then moving on.

First, make it right. Then, make it fast.  Obscuring code to make it run faster isn't always necessary or desirable, but when it matters - like creating Burrows-Wheeler transforms from billion-base pair genomes - Pearls of Functional Algorithm Design looks like it would be an interesting reference.

Imagine a world without hate.   Humans are capable of such wonderful things, but there remains a side to us that too easily distances ourselves from others.  Efforts to dehumanize and marginalize some of us, reduce us all. 

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of those hurt and killed in Overland Park and with all those consumed with anger and tortured by hatred.

Beautiful abstract art?

Rather this is a graphical representation of the frequency of four digit PIN codes. On the x-axes we have the first two PIN digits from 00.. to 99.., on the y-axes we have the last two digits from ..00 to ..99. Popular PIN codes include the yellow diagonal, PIN codes of the form XYXY, and even more bright XXXX. The vertical yellow line are PIN codes marking a year, mostly between the years 1930-2010. The yellow blob on the lower left are US formatted calendar days from 01/01 to 12/31 (you can even see how many days each month has). Also singleton yellow dots can be explained.

Anyway, it is beautiful, in my opinion.

People are arguing about the new IPCC report, but what does it actually say?  Here's the start of a series that provides clear answers to those questions.  Check it out!

But, this series only covers the first IPCC report, "Working Group 1: the Physical Science Basis".  Do you know clear-headed, reliable people who can write good summaries of the reports from Working Group 2 (impacts and climate adaptation) and WG3 (climate mitigation)?

Born under the Second Law of Thermodynamics

We know Neil Armstrong as the first man to step on the Moon -- but in his heart, beyond all that, he was an engineer. And here he gives a brief but passionate oratory about his vocation, a reminder to all of us about the ways in which the world can be changed. Something for all your kids and for all you students and all you engineers out there, to remember why we do what we do.

Since the video (wonderfully illustrated by +PHD Comics' Jorge Chan) lacks captions, I'll transcribe his words for you here:

"I am, and ever will be, a white socks, pocket-protector-wearing, nerdy engineer: born under the Second Law of Thermodynamics, steeped in the steam tables, in love with free-body diagrams, transformed by Laplace, and propelled by compressible flow.

Best short description of homotopy type theory I've seen:

"Around 2005, Voevodsky, and independently Steve Awodey and Michael Warren, realized that constructive dependent type theory, the axiomatic basis for Coq, has an unexpected homotopy-theoretic interpretation. ... What Voevodsky, Awodey, and Warren realized is that one can view dependent type theory as a calculus of topological spaces and continuous maps between them, wherein the assertion x = y is interpreted as the existence of a path between x and y. More specifically, Voevodsky showed there is a model of constructive type theory in the category of simplicial sets, a mathematical structure well known to algebraic topologists."

If You Don't Know Me By Now...

I'm really pensive tonight, here in the wee hours of the morning in midwest America. Our friend, +Dirk Talamasca passed away today, and his passing reminded me of how much we knew about Dirk, and loved about him.

Dirk and I had some great back-and-forth discussions (and arguments) over these few years, but we were always respectful and equally passionate (whether our words were printed publicly, or privately). I enjoyed our conversations immensely. And the same thing can be said of hundreds and hundreds of friends here!

This venue, this UI , has been a place for all of us to get past the slick veneer of other social media places. While that is perfectly fine for many people, I suspect some of us have always sought much more in our connections.

I don't always link to TED talks but when I do, it pays to watch them

http://www.ted.com/talks/hugh_herr_the_new_bionics_that_let_us_run_climb_and_dance

Hugh Herr is building the next generation of bionic limbs, robotic prosthetics inspired by nature's own designs. Herr lost both legs in a climbing accident 30 years ago; now, as the head of the MIT Media Lab’s Biomechatronics group, he shows his incredible technology in a talk that's both technical and deeply personal. 

I am not going to spoil it but chances are high that you'll be fighting tears, in a good way, before you've even made it halfway through this video. If you need to renew your faith in the goodness of mankind or its ability to overcome problems, Hugh Herr has got you covered.

Inner Life of a Cell | Protein Packing
Harvard University and XVIVO come together again to add to the growing series of scientific animations for BioVisions -- Harvard's multimedia lab in the department of Molecular and Cellular Biology. 'Protein Packing' strives to more accurately depict the molecular chaos in each and every cell, with proteins jittering around in what may seem like random motion. Proteins occupy roughly 40% of the cytoplasm, creating an environment that risks unintentional interaction and aggregation. Via diffusion and motor protein transport, these molecules are directed to sites where they are needed.

Popular science; the best of the best

After having devoured truckloads of books, I am now finding it increasingly difficult to score new reading material. Not that there's a shortage of books out there, it's just that I've primarily been reading the well known stuff and only now have to start looking at the more obscure work. I am hoping you guys (and girls) can help me out here by pointing me towards some new books and writers who might not be well known but should be.

I've done my homework, I've scoured the internet for bestsellers, poll winners, and suggestions from famous scientists and in doing so I've managed to uncover a few more guaranteed good ones but not nearly enough to keep me busy for the many decades I plan to spend on this lovely planet of ours. Because I've been reading the well known stuff, my digital excavation work has uncovered a... more »

Stephen Hawking uses fast cars to explain how we can "see" that our universe is expanding - and how we can run the trajectories backwards to discover our origin. :)  Short (4-minute) excerpt provides a lasting impression of some key concepts.  

My goal has always been simple: 

To work out how the universe works and why it exists at all.  

Luckily, there are clues everywhere.

Why would the discovery of gravitational waves from the early Universe be such a big deal?  To get a sense of this, take a walk back in time to when these waves would have been formed:

380 thousand years after the Big Bang - recombination.  Hydrogen gas cools down to form molecules.  The universe becomes transparent, and light from the hot gas moves freely through it, eventually becoming the cosmic background radiation we see today.
Temperature: 3000 Kelvin.

10 thousand years after the Big Bang - end of the radiation-dominated era.   At this point more energy is in the form of matter than in the form of light. 
Temperature: 12,000 Kelvin.

1000 seconds after the Big Bang - decay of lone neutrons.  There had been lots of lone protons, neutrons and electrons.  But a neutron by itself is unstable: it decays into a proton, an electron and ananti-e... more »

Khan Academy is partnering with the College Board so that all students who want to go to college can prepare for the SAT at their own pace, at no cost.  This will start in 2015.

I have mixed feelings.

I love Khan Academy, because they make education free!  I don't love the College Board, because they're the monopoly that sells the "SAT test" which American students must take to get into college.  

There's an industry of special schools and tutors who make money teaching kids how to do well on the SAT.   As inequality rises in the US, and parents become desperate to help their children jump from the sinking middle class to the rising upper class, this industry is growing. 

As far as I can tell, this industry exacerbates inequality.  The parents who can afford tutors for their kids get them.  The parents who can't, don't.

IBM to set Watson loose on cancer genome data.  

"Given the results of the DNA and RNA sequencing...Watson will figure out which mutations are distinct to the tumor, what protein networks they affect, and which drugs target proteins that are part of those networks. The net result will be a picture of the biochemical landscape inside the tumor cells, along with some suggestions on how clinicians might consider intervening to change the landscape."

The Interactive Tree Of Life. :)   http://itol.embl.de It's technically a graph instead of a tree, because some of those little ancestors likely got ahead by merging - forming more capable structures by working together - and creating cross-ties on the tree. [1,2,3].  :)

Bonus: Click on the interactive Tree of Life.  Click "Search" in the upper left.  Enter "Homo sapiens".   Then click the "Homo sapiens" entry on the outer circle. Guess who shows up to represent our species? :)

2 birds with one stone; Discovery of gravitational waves in the CMBR strengthen Inflation's case!

"Almost 14 billion years ago, the universe we inhabit burst into existence in an extraordinary event that initiated the Big Bang. In the first fleeting fraction of a second, the universe expanded exponentially, stretching far beyond the view of today's best telescopes. All this, of course, has just been theory.

Researchers from the BICEP2 collaboration today announced the first direct evidence supporting this theory, known as "cosmic inflation." Their data also represent the first images of gravitational waves, or ripples in space-time. These waves have been described as the "first tremors of the Big Bang." Finally, the data confirm a deep connection between quantum mechanics and general relativity."

If World War One Was a Bar Fight

I saw this a few years ago & it seems to be making the rounds again.

Favorite line: "Germany rolls up its sleeves, looks at France, and punches Belgium."

On the Shores of a Cosmic Ocean: My review of "Cosmos"

http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2014/03/10/_cosmos_carl_sagan_s_classic_program_is_updated_and_terrific.html

I really enjoyed watching "Cosmos" last night, and it made me think quite a bit about religion and freedom of thought. I put some of this down in my review of the show, but I have more thinking to do about it, too. Congratulations to my friends Neil Tyson and Ann Druyan for this wonderful production.

 >Turing’s most significant difference from Church was not in logic or mathematics but in philosophy. Whereas Church merely presented the definition of -definability and boldly claimed that it corresponded to effective calculability, Turing undertook an analysis of the capabilities of a “computer”—at this time, the term referred a human performing a computation assisted by paper and pencil. Turing argued that the number of symbols must be finite (for if infinite, some symbols would be arbitrarily close to each other and undistinguishable), that the number of states of mind must be finite (for the same reason), and that the number of symbols under consideration at one moment must be bounded (“We cannot tell at a glance whether 9999999999999999 and 999999999999999 are the same”).

This is a very readable and engaging paper by Wadler. If you have any interest in computation or logicthen I highl... more »

TECHNOLOGY LAB / INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY $2,400 Introduction to Linux” course will be free and online this summer

Earlier this week, The Linux Foundation announced that it would be working with edX, a non-profit online learning site governed by Harvard and MIT, to make its “Introduction to Linux” course free and open to all.

The Linux Foundation has long offered a wide variety of training courses through its website, but those can generally cost upwards of $2,000. This introductory class, which usually costs $2,400, will be the first from the Linux Foundation to run as a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). There is no limit on enrollment through edX's platform.

This robot is teaching college kids how to code robotics apps

Robots: they build your Teslas, assemble your iPhones, and now they teach your college kids. The Baxter Robot, created by Rethink Robotics, teaches undergraduate students at the University of California, Berkeley, the principles of using and coding for robots — the same kinds of robots that will be assembling automobiles, constructing phones, and performing all kinds of tasks in the next decade or two.

The Warrior

The warrior falls and this time,
he knows he will not rise. 
He will not fight again.

Even the chaotic cacophony of battle begins to fade. 
His consciousness crawls from the growing well, 
surprisingly strong, the desire for one moment more. 

He hears, barely, at the edges of his mind.
As a graceful voice whispers inside, 
You've done well.

Then he feels it. 
The pain, the fleeting triumph. 
The sense of accomplishment that never lasts. 
For having beaten the game, 
he knows that simultaneously,
he has lost it.  

That which has consumed him, that which he lived for,
and trained for, now died for, is leaving. 
And all that has sustained him
and given him meaning, is gone. 

He forces his eyes from their awkward position, 
to see oncemore the sky... more »
