Reinventors Network799,731Here'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 20:00:00191

My sense is -- and I'm only speaking for myself, of course -- is that Google is wonderfully and enormously user-centrically concerned about overly broad "requests" by the government for user data. And across the board, the government will not get the "nod and wink" non-warrant cooperation that they've perhaps gotten used to when dealing with Big Telecom and the like. Again, just my personal opinion.

Is it possible to reset our biological clocks?

This study, which was published in The FASEB Journal, included 16 healthy volunteers who were studied in temporal isolation chambers. These results show, for the first time, that the peripheral biological clocks located in white blood cells can be synchronized through the administration of glucocorticoid tablets.

I got to hang out with the awesome people of the Pennhurst Paranormal Association for 5 hours that was filled with paranormal stories, history and lots and lots of photography. And insane amount of photos to follow over the next few weeks. Stay tuned!

Some History of the place:

"Pennhurst was constructed and opened in 1908 as a state school for the mentally and physically disabled. Pennhurst's property was vast, covering 120 acres. Created to house over 10,000 patients at a point in time, Pennhurst was one of the largest institutions of its kind in Pennsylvania. Half of Pennhurst's residents were committed by court order and the other half were brought by a parent or other guardian.

Some History of the place:

"Pennhurst was constructed and opened in 1908 as a state school for the mentally and physically disabled. Pennhurst's property was vast, covering 120 acres. Created to house over 10,000 patients at a point in time, Pennhurst was one of the largest institutions of its kind in Pennsylvania. Half of Pennhurst's residents were committed by court order and the other half were brought by a parent or other guardian. It was devoted strictly to the care, treatment and education of the disabled. Originally named Pennhurst Home for the Feeble Minded and Epileptic, it finally was just called Pennhurst State School. Pennhurst employed a large number of staff to help assist in maintaining the facility. This staff included a board of trustees, medical staff, dental staff, and specialists in psychology, social services, accounting, and various fields of education. The grounds of Pennhurst included a 300-bed hospital, which had a full nursing staff an
d two surgeons on call at all times. Others at Pennhurst included members of the clergy and farming experts who grew most of Pennhurst's food . Pennhurst was an essentially self-sufficient community, its 1,400-acre site containing a firehouse, general store, barber shop, movie theatre, auditorium and even a greenhouse. The buildings of Pennhurst were named after towns in Pennsylvania such as Chester and Devon. The original buildings were designed by architect Phillip H. Johnson. All of Pennhurst's electricity was generated by an on-site power plant. A cemetery lay on the property, as well as baseball and recreational fields for the residents. Many of Pennhurst's buildings were strictly for storage; however, the majority were dormitory and hospital-style living quarters for the residents. Many of the buildings had security screens that were accessed on the inside, to prevent patients from escaping, or jumping to their deaths. Most of the stairwells had security fences to keep patients from jumping over the railings. Many of the buildings are linked by an underground tunnel system designed for transportation of handicapped patients to and from the dormitory, recreational buildings and dietary.

Pennhurst was often accused of dehuminazitation and was said to have provided no help to the mentally challenged. The institution had a long history of staff difficulties and negative public image, for example, a 1968 report by NBC called "Suffer the Little Children". Pennhurst State School was closed in 1986 following several allegations of abuse. These allegations led to the first lawsuit of its kind in the United States, Pennhurst State School and Hospital vs. Halderman, which asserted that the mentally retarded have a constitutional right to living quarters and an education. Terry Lee Halderman had been a resident of the school, and upon release she filed suit in the district court on behalf of herself and all other residents of Pennhurst. The complaint alleged that conditions at Pennhurst were unsanitary, inhumane and dangerous, that these living conditions violated the fourteenth amendment, and that Pennhurst used cruel and unusual punishment in violation of the eighth and fourteenth amendments. After a 32-day trial and an immense investigation, prosecutors concluded that the conditions at Pennhurst were not only dangerous, with physical and mental abuse of its patients, but also inadequate for the care and habilitation for the mentally retarded. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania also concluded that the physical, mental, and intellectual skills of most patients had deteriorated while in Pennhurst.

In 1986, Pennhurst was ordered closed, and began a program of de-institutionalism that lasted several years. Once the buildings were closed, they began to rapidly deteriorate from lack of heating, moisture invasion and vandalism. Thousands of people began to illegally tour the property spray painting everything in sight and breaking all the glass in the place. Theft was rampant and the destruction of the property was in full swing. Patients were thrown out and a large homeless contingent developed in the area.

Pennhurst fell into complete ruin as the complex was shut down. Buildings were abandoned as they were, with patient’s clothes and belonging strewn about. Furniture, cabinets and medical equipment were left to decay as if someone had just got up and walked out the front door. This is the place that will eventually resurrect into one of the most studied properties in the ghost hunter media, and will become an amazing haunted attraction."

The Free Encryption App That Wants to Replace Gmail, Dropbox, and HipChat

Cryptographers devote their careers to the science of securing your communications. Twenty-four-year-old Nadim Kobeissi has devoted his to the art of making that security as easy as possible. His software creations like Cryptocat and Minilock encrypt instant messages or shared files with three-letter-agency-level protection, with user interfaces that require Lincoln-Log-level skills. Now he’s combining elements of his dead-simple apps into what he’s calling his biggest release yet, a single platform designed to encrypt everything you and any group of collaborators do on the desktop.

Today, Kobeissi plans to announce Peerio, an “encrypted productivity suite” meant to help individual users and businesses encrypt everything from IMs to online file storage. The software, initially launching as a Windows and Mac app as well as a Chrome plugin but coming to mobile platforms soon, resembles a simplified Gmail with IM and Google Drive features included. Unlike Gmail, all communication sent via Peerio are end-to-end encrypted and can’t be decrypted by anyone but the recipient—not even someone with access to the Peerio server itself.___

Our Future Societies: Beyond Dualism

"The narrative I choose, in order to navigate this ever-expanding domain, is one of co-creation. I choose empathy. I choose love."
-- +Gunther Sonnenfeld 

What could possibly be more fitting to amplify on the darkest day of the year, than love? And, since we have developed these digital tools, to connect clear across the planet, we are beginning to realize that our suffering, stems in no small part from outdated beliefs - eg the one I snuck in here already, as if the Northern Hemisphere darkest day spiehl, is somehow THE perspective. In Australia, in South Africa, it's not.  :)

As for our future societies, what if they will be co-created, starting right here, right now?

"We made it? What happened? We happened."

Because we could.

8,000-year-old olive oil found in ancient clay pots

Ancient people pressed olive oil as far back as 8,000 years ago in Israel, a new study finds. Researchers found residues of the Mediterranean-diet staple on ancient clay pots dating back to the 6th millennium B.C. "This is the earliest evidence of the use of olive oil in the country, and perhaps the entire Mediterranean basin," Ianir Milevski and Nimrod Getzov, excavation directors at the Israel Antiquities Authority, said in a statement.

"The largest trees in a forest may command the most attention, but the smallest seedlings and youngest saplings are the ones that are most critical to the composition and diversity of the forest overall".

BitTorrent Opens Alpha For Maelstrom, Its New, Distributed, Torrent-Based Web Browser

BitTorrent, the peer-to-peer file sharing company, is today opening an alpha test for its latest stab at disrupting — or at least getting people to rethink — how users interact with each other and with content over the Internet. Project Maelstrom is BitTorrent’s take on the web browser: doing away with centralised servers, web content is instead shared through torrents on a distributed network.

Carry is Massively Disruptive to the Traditional Shipping Market

Every day there are millions of people flying commercial airlines across the globe – why not take advantage of that? Carry has today announced the launch of their new service that connects people who want to ship things with travelers who can carry the packages for them.

“As a carrier, you’ll be providing a premium experience for shippers,” says Peter SerVaas, co-founder of Carry. “In beta testing, shippers saved an average of over 60 percent compared to traditional shipping options. Similarly, carriers have earned an average of $500 towards their travel.”

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.

The research is in Science Translational Medicine. (full access paywall)
