Reinventors Network791,674Here's a really hard problem that Larry Lessig is not sure how to solve: "Let's assume we've got a fundamentally corrupt government, in the precise sense that the dependence upon "funders" corrupts the intended dependence upon "the people alone," and that too many within that system are too deeply connected to it to push for its change. That means any effective movement for change has got to come from the outside. How would a grassroots movement in the Internet Age create the pressure such a change would require? How would the people who brought the Internet to scale tackle this problem?"Joining Larry in his effort is a veritable who's who of internet know-how, the folks who have built & scaled networks for change: internet pioneer Tim O'Reilly, Change.org Founder Ben Rattray, Moveon.org Executive Director Anna Galland, VC Brad Burnham, Executive Producer of TED Media June Cohen, Bram Cohen, creator of BitTorrent, and Markos Moulitsas, Founder of Daily Kos. Reinvent Money in Politics2013-07-11 20:00:00195

The emotion of filled space -- human abstracts by Philip Jackson

I have long been familiar with Philip Jackson as a monumental sculpture. His public work has always struck me as representational, humanely evocative and subtly tender in the kindest possible way. 

I recently came upon Jackson's other works on Yol and Art's tumblr and was heart-struck by the enormous emotionality of these abstracts. So much of how we convey feeling is non-verbal, physical shaping of space by posture and juxtaposition -- and we fully and instantly apprehend this, but on a level well below both attention and verbal expression.

Gut Microbiota Influences Blood Brain Barrier Permeability

Full article at http://neurosciencenews.com/blood-brain-barrier-gut-microbiota-1558/.

A new study in mice, conducted by researchers at Sweden’s Karolinska Institutet together with colleagues in Singapore and the United States, shows that our natural gut-residing microbes can influence the integrity of the blood-brain barrier, which protects the brain from harmful substances in the blood. According to the authors, the findings provide experimental evidence that our indigenous microbes contribute to the mechanism that closes the blood-brain barrier before birth. The results also support previous observations that gut microbiota can impact brain development and function.

Central Park - Autumn - New York City

There are moments that remain etched into time:

moments that aren’t easily forgotten no matter how much time passes between the yawning gaps in between memory and dreaming.

Cameras become jars with which to capture moments that flicker like fireflies.

Photographers are moment collectors and dream catchers.

Madagascar and the Baobab Alley of Morondova.
Imagine trees whose branches look like roots, trunks as water reservoirs and leaves sprouting about 2-3 months of the year. Imagine humongous trunks, up to 82 feet in circumference and storing up to 32,000 gallons of water in its swollen trunks. It can live up to 5000 years.
It is known as the ‘Tree of Life’. It is the Baobab, folks.
The Baobab, tall, massive, flame resistant and one of the most unique plant on Earth. It thrives in one of the most unique, eco-sanctuary, Madagascar.

Drawing directly from the style of the Venetian baùtta i tabarro, I find these figures frankly hierophantic in impression; where are they leading me, for most assuredly, lead met they do. Their vast, contiguous texture and lines intensify the strength of the detail in a remarkable way by gathering up the eye in a way that creates an almost palpable visual frame for delicate gilded fingers or ghostly sketches of facial expression. Alone, these details lack context and physical presence to pull our feelings. Within the framework of massively defined space they are the human element, in simultaneous isolation from, and dependence upon everything that surrounds it. I love the artist's notice of that human condition, our constant state of embodied contradiction, that somehow manages to continue in each of us as integral beings.

The average redwood tree lives to be between 500 and 800 years old. However, there are some old-growth trees that have lived even longer. The oldest living redwood trees are between 2,000 and 2,200 years old. Protecting these old-growth trees is considered essential by scientists because 96 percent of all old-growth redwoods have been killed by loggers. Today, old-growth redwood trees are protected by Redwood State and National Parks in Northern California.

Redwood trees have survived the ages due to their adaptability to fire, flood and fog. Redwood trees produce dormant buds, called burls, encouraging new growth after injury by forest fire. When the root system of a redwood tree is covered in layers of soil and silt after a flood, the tree begins a new set above the top of the old roots, closer to the surface, allowing the tree to live on. Redwood trees also utilize the dense fog that blankets... more »

When the root system of a redwood tree is covered in layers of soil and silt after a flood, the tree begins a new set above the top of the old roots, closer to the surface, allowing the tree to live on. Redwood trees also utilize the dense fog that blankets the forests of the Pacific Northwest. Redwoods pull moisture from fog, getting up to 40 percent of their water needs from fog during the dry summer months. The long lifespan of redwood trees is made possible by its adaptability. ~by Casandra Maier, Demand Media

So much beauty to behold...so much life has marched past these wondrous trees...

Imagine for a minute you are a 2000 year old redwood...what would you have to say to humanity today?

The mathematics behind the Droste effect
http://www.josleys.com/article_show.php?id=82

In 1956, M.C. Escher completed a drawing called “Print Gallery”. The drawing depicts a young man looking at a print in a gallery that is deformed almost beyond recognition. There is an enigmatic white area in the center of the image.

In 2003, a group of mathematicians at Leiden University, led by Prof. Hendrik Lenstra succeeded in unraveling the mathematical structure of the image. Once this structure was known, they could ‘complete’ the image by filling in the famous white spot with the help of a computer algorithm.

A summary of their method was published in a paper, and received a lot of acclaim, not only in academic circles, but also in the general press.
