Andrij “Andrew” Harasewych465,552On 2012 November 13/14, a total eclipse of the Sun is visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses Earth's southern Hemisphere. The path of the Moon's umbral shadow begins in northern Australia and crosses the South Pacific Ocean with on other no landfall. The Moon's penumbral shadow produces a partial eclipse visible from a much larger region covering Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific. For those traveling to Australia for the eclipse, please note that the eclipse occurs on the morning of Nov. 14 local time.

Researchers from West Virginia University are teaming up with a new startup called Agri Carb Electric Corporation to investigate the farming infrastructure benefits of hemp. This will mark the first time West Virginia has allowed hemp cultivation in 70 years. 

The state is taking advantage of the Federal Farm Bill, which Obama signed in 2014. The bill allows states to cultivate hemp for research and pilot programs. 23 other states have already begun growing hemp in the last two years.

Hemp is a resilient plant. It’s capable of phytoremediation, a process in which the plant leaches pollutants from the soil, hyper-accumulates them, and metabolizes them. Phytoremediation works particularly well on sites contaminated with heavy metals, uranium, and arsenic. This could potentially clean up fields in West Virginia that have been contaminated by coal and gas extraction.

Researchers from West Virginia University are teaming up with a new startup called Agri Carb Electric Corporation to investigate the farming infrastructure benefits of hemp. This will mark the first time West Virginia has allowed hemp cultivation in 70 years. 

The state is taking advantage of the Federal Farm Bill, which Obama signed in 2014. The bill allows states to cultivate hemp for research and pilot programs. 23 other states have already begun growing hemp in the last two years.

Hemp is a resilient plant. It’s capable of phytoremediation, a process in which the plant leaches pollutants from the soil, hyper-accumulates them, and metabolizes them. Phytoremediation works particularly well on sites contaminated with heavy metals, uranium, and arsenic. This could potentially clean up fields in West Virginia that have been contaminated by coal and gas extraction. 

“There are a lot of contaminated brownfields throughout West Virginia that people find too expensive to cleanup,” said Agri Carb’s CEO, Don Smith II. “We can be a complement to the state’s coal and gas industries by using a hemp cash crop to revitalize spoiled lands. This research should interest every post-industrial community in West Virginia to invest (with grants) and monetize what is now considered worthless.”   

The idea here is not just to clean up the fields with hemp, but to use the plants for products that will bring in cash. Hemp has a wide variety of uses, including textiles, fuel, paper, food, plastics, and construction materials.

Although Agri Carb frames this as a boon for West Virginia, the implications go beyond that. Imagine an entire economy supported by the sustainability of hemp. 

So what is Agri Carb, and why is the company interested in sustaining agricultural infrastructure with hemp? ___

Mark Sanders took apart the innards of a popcorn popper, introduced them to a Raspberry Pi and ‘hey presto’, a home roaster for the perfect cup of coffee.

A list of ingredients and the recipe itself are available online, along with a series of helpful images.

All in all, this is a brilliant home build that is not only functional but also looks great!

Based on 83 human samples from Holocene Europe as analyzed under the 1000 Genomes Project , it is now found that for the majority of the time that humans have lived in Europe, the people had dark skin, and the genes signifying light skin only appear within the past 8,000 years. This recent and relatively quick process of natural selection suggests to researchers that the traits which spread rapidly were advantageous within that environment, according to the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

Driving to infinity

A long time ago, before most of you showed up on Google+, I wrote a story about infinity.  It featured a character who was recruited by the US government to fight in the War on Chaos.  His mission was to explore larger and larger infinities.  

You can see that story in my "bigness" collection - lots of posts, each one its own little chapter.

But I keep wanting to talk about infinity - it's endlessly interesting!   I keep learning more about it.  Some posts here by +Refurio Anachro re-ignited my desire to write about it, and now I have.  Here's the first of three articles:

Driving to infinity

A long time ago, before most of you showed up on Google+, I wrote a story about infinity.  It featured a character who was recruited by the US government to fight in the War on Chaos.  His mission was to explore larger and larger infinities.  

You can see that story in my "bigness" collection - lots of posts, each one its own little chapter.

But I keep wanting to talk about infinity - it's endlessly interesting!   I keep learning more about it.  Some posts here by +Refurio Anachro re-ignited my desire to write about it, and now I have.  Here's the first of three articles:

https://johncarlosbaez.wordpress.com/2016/06/29/large-countable-ordinals-part-1/

If you read this, you'll learn about the two basic kinds of infinities discovered by Cantor: cardinals and ordinals.   Then we'll go on a road trip through larger and larger ordinals.

The picture here shows some of the first ones we'll meet on our trip.  Omega, written ω, is the first infinite ordinal:

ω = {0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,...}

Each turn of the spiral here takes you to a higher power of omega, and if you go around infinitely many times, you reach omega to the omegath power.   There are many ways to visualize this ordinal, and I explain a few. 

But my road trip will take you much further than that!

In this first episode, we reach an ordinal called epsilon nought, first discovered by Cantor.  In the second episode we'll go up the Feferman–Schütte ordinal.  In the third we'll reach the small Veblen ordinal and even catch a glimpse of the large Veblen ordinal.

All these are countable ordinals, and you can write computer programs to calculate with them, so I consider them just as concrete as the square root of 2.  And yet, they're quite mind-blowing.
