Space Fan News!2,701,082Hello Space Fans!If there's one question that +Tony Darnell and +Scott Lewis have been asked more than any, it's "what telescope should I buy?". With the holidays in full swing, many are eager to either go buy the biggest, most expensive telescope they can or just find a local Super Duper Mart, buying what they have there. With so many things to consider along with some potentially confusing terminology being used, it's extremely easy to be overwhelmed as to what you should do when first buying a telescope. Well have no fear, your favorite dynamic duo will be hosting a Hangout On Air to help answer any questions and give some helpful tips, tricks and teasers into the best way to get started in observing the Universe!As a special treat, +Gary Gonnella, +Stuart Forman and +Peter Lake will also be joining the hangout to share their experience in getting into the amazing world of citizen astronomy and astrophotography. These three are powerhouses when it comes to observing from home, on the road or even remotely, and they will undoubtedly be able to bring a lot of information to the show!So how do ask your questions? You can always leave your questions and comments here in the Event page, as well as on YouTube when the show goes live. Also, the Q&A app will be in use while live, so you can interact directly with the crew! (Just like downtown)Beginner's guide to buying a telescope2013-12-19 03:00:00183G+

Can false memories for both pleasurable and aversive events be artificially created? What about false memories for more than just contexts — false memories for objects, food or other mice? These are the once seemingly sci-fi questions that can now be experimentally tackled in the lab.”Check out our second Geek Week Hangout on Thursday, Aug 8 at 2 PM: http://goo.gl/EqHLtX Faking It: Neuroscience of Memory at MIT2013-08-06 20:00:0051G+

Google Science Fair1,891,228What does an Academy Award, Theoretical Physics, & Kings College have in common? The sum of these is the brilliant mind of Google[x] Engineer +Dan Piponi and the work that he's done. Not only does he get to work on cool projects in the Google[x] lab, he can also explain science in a way that’s accessible to all ages. Join Google Science Fair winner +Shree Bose as she moderates a hangout with Google’s Dan Piponi. He'll shows us how to find subatomic particles from the comfort of your own home. Most of us are familiar with pictures of subatomic particles interacting but seeing it in real life seems like a lofty goal. What most people don't realize is that you can get similar results at home by spending about $40 on materials that are pretty easy to find.     Bring your questions and curiosities to follow along with Dan, Shree and the other #deSTEMber participants Wednesday, December 19 at 10 AM PST / 12PM CST / 1 PM EST. Keep tuning into the 31 days of #deSTEMber with +Girlstart and +Google Science Fair for more at-home experiments and STEM activities.      For a full list of events, check out Girlstart’s calendar http://goo.gl/fP810deSTEMber Experiment: Inside the Mind of Google [x] Engineer Dan Piponi2012-12-19 19:00:00162G+

Weeeeee, I'm back from my first day of work!

I just started my first "real" job at a real office! I'm the web and social media editor for the USC Annenberg Center on Communication Leadership and Policy (communicationleadership.usc.edu)! Well, I'm just a part-time temp worker for now, but hopefully they'll want to keep me around. ;)

Anyone have a good first-day-of-work story? When was the first time you felt like you had a "real" job? And how did it go?

As for me, so far so good! I'm excited and nervous and motivated and terrified and all that good stuff that accompanies anything new. Yay for new adventures! :)

The Invention of Orange Carrots

Today I learned that carrots weren't orange until the 16th or 17th century! The first domestic carrots were purple and yellow, originating in Central Asia in the 10th century [1].

You can thank the Dutch for cultivating our modern orange carrots. Holland was "a leading country in carrot development" by the 1700s [2], and the carrot's rise in popularity was also reflected in "the sudden appearance of orange carrots in period oil paintings" like Joachim Wtewael's famous "Kitchen Scene" [3], which you can see here: http://www.wikipaintings.org/en/joachim-wtewael/kitchen-scene-1605

In fact, all of today's orange carrots derive from just four varieties of Dutch carrots, three of which come from the "Horn" variety named after the Dutch town Hoorn [2].

But why have I never... more »

Thanks +Pearl Chen for sending me this adorable Android mini figure!!! Now I just need to decide how to paint it...

As you can see, this little droid dude has some smooth moves! He's celebrating National Dance Day one day late. ;)

If you have Photoshop and you're into stop-motion animation, here's the tutorial I used to make this:

As for the photography part, all you need is a camera, some patience, and a steady hand!

Is it just me, or did G+ Auto Awesome make these stars twinkle? (Click it to view full screen and look closely!)

"Even though you may think they came from lying under the stars, for me, they came out of loving the blackness of the pencil." -- Vija Celmins

This is Night Sky #4 by Vija Celmins, found at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.

When I look up at the night sky, my focus is on the stars -- specks of light in what looks like a vast emptiness. But on canvas, the stars are the emptiness, the unpainted specks, and the texture of the black paint becomes the focus.

When you take a few steps back, the painting looks so photo-realistic that the stars almost appear to be twinkling -- no auto awesome needed!

Americans love Jews! Atheists and Muslims, not so much.
How Americans Feel About Religious Groups: http://goo.gl/v0mnSG

So what does that mean for the atheist Jews? =P Highlights from the study:

- Evangelicals rated more positively by republicans than democrats; most non-Christian religions viewed more favorably by democrats than republicans

- Both Jews and atheists rate evangelicals negatively, but evangelicals rate Jews highly

- Christians and Jews are rated more favorably by older Americans than by younger people; other non-Christian faiths are rated more positively by younger people

- Jews rated most positively by whites; evangelicals and Muslims viewed more favorably by blacks than whites

- And this one's no surprise: groups tend to be rated most positively by their own members

My first byline!   I wrote an intro article for a series on Mobile Technology for Community Engagement: http://goo.gl/jEqsuc

In 2011, Pew Research found that only 35% of American adults owned a smartphone. Just three years later, smartphone ownership has nearly doubled to 58%, with 90% of American adults owning some type of cell phone.

Pew Research also found in 2013 that 72% of all online American adults use social media sites like Facebook, up from only 8% in 2005. Even President Obama is "hip to all these things"; he's hosted Twitter chats, Google+ hangouts, a live Q&A on Tumblr, and an "Ask Me Anything" thread on Reddit.

But this increased connectedness doesn't necessarily translate to increased engagement on a local level. Especially in a sprawling, decentralized city like Los Angeles, growing a sense of community has provend... more »

My first non-blurry fireworks photo ever!

Happy 238th Independence Day, America! Tonight I learned that all my neighbors are illegal fireworks aficionados, so... the celebration continues!

(It actually feels more like a war zone than a celebration, though. Several car alarms are going off on my street right now, there's smoke everywhere, and my ears are ringing after making the mistake of going out on the balcony right as one exploded over my head!)

I have a feeling I'm going to be up all night whether I like it or not. lol.

Overcoming Imposter Syndrome
http://goo.gl/yxkavm by +Alicia Liu 

This feeling is partly why I gave up on a STEM major despite my interests. I had (and sometimes still have) this nagging voice in my head, telling me, "You can't do that because you're just not the math/science/tech type."

As Alicia describes it, "In my head I held a definition of a good programmer, and I didn’t fit it. [...] I did not try to implement algorithms in academic papers for fun. I did not skip meals to code."

Even though she majored in computer engineering and co-founded a software startup, this is what she believed: "I managed to get that far through sheer dumb luck and managed to keep everyone from finding out I’m not great at programming.”

And racking up more accomplishments doesn't solve the problem. As MayaAngelo... more »

Sweet Math: How to Make Fibonacci Lemonade

"This drink may be the world’s first tastable example of the relationship between the Fibonacci sequence and the golden ratio!" http://goo.gl/QkeuNk by +Andrea Hawksley 

I have to try this sometime. This isn't visual mathematical art like fractal cookies or Pi pies. This is chemical art enjoyed through your taste buds!

Each layer of this lemonade is composed of varying ratios of sugar and lemon juice. "The top layer of our drink is 1 part lemon, while the second layer is 1 part sugar syrup. Following the Fibonacci rule, each subsequent layer has proportions that are the sum of the previous two layers proportions."

"Generically, for layer n > 2, there are fib(n-1) parts sugar and fib(n-2) parts lemon juice. These are adjacent Fibonacci numbers, so as the drink is consumedthe ... more »

Remembering my mom

I lost my mom to cancer recently.

I wish I could offset the weight of that sentence, soften it with the detail of my memories. I wish I could somehow express them all at once, the ups and downs and infinite gradations of emotion in between.

Maybe you've also experienced a loss of one kind or another that left you feeling lost for words, or just plain lost. What was it like for you? I'm not entirely sure how to talk about it. I just know that I need to.

I need to say something about my mom before I begin to let life return to normal (whatever normal is), and before I get back to sharing posts about cool science stuff or animated GIFs or whatever else.

I don't have the energy to share as much as I'd like to. Not yet, at least. So I'll just say this: she made sure that I knew I was always and will always be... more »

A downtown stroll on a cloudy day

Downtown LA may not be known for its flora and fauna, but that just makes it all the more special when I discover a new little garden. :)

And after staring at a computer screen all day, a few minutes of (relatively) fresh air feels pretty special, too. In fact, I just realized I had forgotten the literal meaning of the phrase "a breath of fresh air"! Fresh air can be so delicious. Even if it is a little smoggy.

Generating realistic terrain with 130 lines of JavaScript
http://www.playfuljs.com/realistic-terrain-in-130-lines/

"Programmers tend to be lazy (I speak from experience), and one nice side effect of laziness is really brilliant ways to avoid work. In this case, instead of spending mind-numbing hours manually creating what would likely be pretty lame rocky surfaces, we'll get spiritual and teach the computer what it means to be a rock. We'll do this by generating fractals, or shapes that repeat patterns in smaller and smaller variations.

I don't have any way to prove that terrain is a fractal but this method looks really damn good, so maybe you'll take it on faith."

Common Core Epic Fail!
#geekhumor   #math   #mathematics  

Also see appended edited comment below.

One father, who has an advanced engineering degree, couldn't figure out the approach used to calculate a math problem presented on his son's elementary homework assignment: “Jack used the number line below to solve 427 – 316. Find his error. Then write a letter to Jack telling him what he did right, and what he should do to fix his mistake.”

“Dear Jack, Don’t feel bad. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electronics Engineering, which included extensive study in differential equations and other higher math applications. Even I cannot explain the Common Core mathematics approach, nor get the answer correct. In the real world, simplification is valued over complication. Therefore, 427 - 316 = 111.

You Can Now Add a 3-Second Intro to All Your YouTube Videos

About time! Blip.tv had this feature from the start -- and that was like 8 years ago! Anyway, here's how to do it on YouTube:

"1. Upload the three-second intro video you’d like to use to your channel as an unlisted video.

2. On your channel's InVideo Programming page, click "Add a channel branding intro" and select the intro from a list of eligible videos.

3. Select which videos you want the intro to appear on. You can choose whether to add it to all of your videos, or just the ones you’ve uploaded after a certain date. You can always remove or change the intro later."

" April is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
Winter kept us warm, covering
Earth in forgetful snow, feeding
A little life with dried tubers."

— "The Waste Land" by T.S. Eliot
http://www.bartleby.com/201/1.html

I think April will be over before I can finish reading this interminable poem!

It's supposed to be one of the most famous poems of the 20th century, but I could never finish the trek across all 434 lines of its obscure literary allusions.

If I've never read the whole thing, why do these first lines pop into my head every April? It's not exactly a catchy jingle. =P

What do you think? Any T. S. Eliot fans want to explain this to me?

The World's Smallest 3D Glasses Created to Study Evolution of 3D Vision, Improve Vision for Robotics

Apparently the praying mantis is the only invertebrate known to have 3D vision. And if their 3D vision turns out to be similar to ours, it "would mean that mantises have independently evolved similar 3D processing to vertebrates"!

http://www.ncl.ac.uk/press.office/press.release/item/testing-3d-vision-in-praying-mantises

This makes me wonder... what are some other good examples of features evolving independently in very different organisms?

This research could also "open up all kinds of possibilities to create much simpler algorithms for programming 3D vision into robots," according to one of the researchers, Dr. Vivek Nityananda.

When it comes to political beliefs, studies have found that when exposing misinformed people to "corrected facts in news stories, they rarely changed their minds. In fact, they often became even more strongly set in their beliefs. Facts, they found, were not curing misinformation. Like an underpowered antibiotic, facts could actually make misinformation even stronger."

RIGHT NOW:  Bill Nye Debates Creationist +Ken Ham Live

The videos that sparked the debate:
Bill Nye: Creationism Is Not Appropriate For Children
Ken Ham Responds to Bill Nye "The Humanist Guy"

Why is Bill Nye even doing this in the first place? The Science Guy says, "I decided to participate in the debate because I felt it would draw attention to the importance of science education here in the United States."

"Tuesday's debate will be about whether Ham’s creation model is viable or useful for describing nature. We cannot use his model to predict the outcome of any experiment, design a tool, cure a disease or describe natural phenomena with mathematics.

These are all things that parents in the United States very much want their children to be able to do; everyone wants his or herkids ... more »

Don't Just Follow Me....ENGAGE

I am thankful for all the followers I have and try to circle back the ones who engage on my posts with comments/shares.   But, unfortunately I miss a bunch of good people that add me.    

When I add someone to my circles I let them know in a comment why I did.  At that point they can add me back or not but I like to let them know that I am out there and why I chose to follow them.  So please, let me know you are out there.

So you know how we're doing that thing where we're doing whatever our
G+ friends says to do?

I took +Liz Krane's advice and mixed my Earl Grey with some hot chocolate. I also added a bit of condensed milk to sweeten and since I like some milk with my tea occasionally and I also like it in my Hot Chocolate.

It actually tastes great! Tastes like a chocolate bergamot orange! And now I will be annoyingly slurping this in class. Thanks for the tip Liz!

Weeeeee, I'm back from my first day of work!

I just started my first "real" job at a real office! I'm the web and social media editor for the USC Annenberg Center on Communication Leadership and Policy (communicationleadership.usc.edu)! Well, I'm just a part-time temp worker for now, but hopefully they'll want to keep me around. ;)

Anyone have a good first-day-of-work story? When was the first time you felt like you had a "real" job? And how did it go?

As for me, so far so good! I'm excited and nervous and motivated and terrified and all that good stuff that accompanies anything new. Yay for new adventures! :)

R.I.P. Comet ISON ("born 4.5 billion BC, fragmented Nov. 28, 2013")

"Comets are like cats; they have tails, and they do precisely what they want." — David H. Levy, who discovered 22 comets

As Karl Battams writes in this beautiful eulogy, Comet ISON was a comet full of "tenacious ambition":
http://www.isoncampaign.org/karl/in-memoriam

Battams' caption for the image below: "This is how comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) wished to be remembered."  :)

"Survived by approximately several trillion siblings, Comet ISON leaves behind an unprecedented legacy for astronomers, and the eternal gratitude of an enthralled global audience. In ISON's memory, donations are encouraged to your local astronomy club, observatory or charity that supports STEM and science outreach programs for children."... more »

The Invention of Orange Carrots

Today I learned that carrots weren't orange until the 16th or 17th century! The first domestic carrots were purple and yellow, originating in Central Asia in the 10th century [1].

You can thank the Dutch for cultivating our modern orange carrots. Holland was "a leading country in carrot development" by the 1700s [2], and the carrot's rise in popularity was also reflected in "the sudden appearance of orange carrots in period oil paintings" like Joachim Wtewael's famous "Kitchen Scene" [3], which you can see here: http://www.wikipaintings.org/en/joachim-wtewael/kitchen-scene-1605

In fact, all of today's orange carrots derive from just four varieties of Dutch carrots, three of which come from the "Horn" variety named after the Dutch town Hoorn [2].

But why have I never... more »

Turkey and Tryptophan: Thanksgiving Myth Debunked

ƵƵƶƶ Why do we feel sleepy after a big meal? You've probably blamed the Thanksgiving turkey for having too much tryptophan, an amino acid that the body converts to serotonin and melatonin, two sleep-inducing compounds. But it turns out that tryptophan has to be consumed on an empty stomach and not with gourmandish excess of cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie, to be effectively blamed for your soporific state.  Did you know that even oat bran and soybeans contain more tryptophan than turkey? Check out this infographic ▶ http://goo.gl/pQtLTp .

ƵƵƶƶ Another popular theory is that after a big meal, our body diverts blood supply to the gut, and away from the brain, to help digestion. While this seems logical, it turns out that cerebral blood flow and oxygenation are kept stablethrough more »

Why Aren't There More Women Making STEM Videos on YouTube?

Emily Graslie spent "an embarrassingly long amount of time just trying to think of a handful" of women who make STEM videos on YouTube.* She asked for suggestions on Twitter and got replies like "There are others besides you and Vi Hart?"

Emily found that "while there are at least 13 STEM channels hosted by men with more than 400,000 subscribers (and 7 of those 13 have topped a million subscribers), there are only four channels by women which have more than 160,000 subscribers."

Emily discusses one of the main issues: those horrible, horrible YouTube comments! (Some of the comments quoted in the video made me want to laugh and cry at the same time. lol.)

It's definitely one of the reasons I've been hesitant about making more YouTube videos of my own... more »

The Geekhood of the Travelling Book ... Who Wants It Next?

When I'm done with this book, I'll mail it to one of you awesome Google+ friends of mine! Thanks +Jason Salas for sending me this splendid Android textbook all the way from Guam -- a 6,000 mile trip to reach me here in Los Angeles! I just opened it up, and this absolutely made my day. :) It looks like a great resource. (See Jason's review of the book here: http://goo.gl/EzSkoV)

Whoever I eventually send it to will need to promise to then send it to someone else so that eventually, this book might travel all the way around the earth!

Soooo... who else wants to learn about programming for Android? What sorts of projects do you want to work on? Video games? The next big social media web 2.0 buzzwordy thing? 

As for me, I first want to get up to speed on the new API and finally update myve... more »

THE SCIENCE OF DOCTOR WHO - Dr. Brian Cox Presents

This is a fantastic special that someone has been kind enough to put up on YouTube and the BBC has been kind enough not to kill it. (which always means that it might go away rather suddenly)

The special is available on iPlayer in the UK and will air in the US on BBC America on November 18th at 10:00pm cut up and with a dozen commercials interrupting it every 10 minutes.

You might expect some of the crappy, campy, snappy crap that you would expect from BBC America but it's not that at all.

It's a fun, interesting, intelligent and highly entertaining presentation from Dr. Brian Cox about all sorts of science that intersect with Doctor Who.

I'm really hopeful a lot of young fans get to see this and it sparks their interest in science.

Full-Length Documentary "Minecraft: The Story of Mojang"

I haven't watched it all yet, because I have things to do -- it's a full-length documentary, an hour and a half! You can also download it on their website: http://minecraftstoryofmojang.com/

"Minecraft: The Story of Mojang is a feature-length documentary that follows the young company over the course of its first year as their profile expanded across the world stage and into the homes of millions of gamers. Featuring insights from industry icons (Peter Molyneux, Tim Schafer), journalists (Geoff Keighley, Stephen Totilo), tastemakers (Gabe & Tycho of Penny Arcade), and players profoundly impacted by the game (Yogscast, The Shaft, Minecraft Teacher), the film serves as a time capsule for one of this generation's most unorthodox success stories.

The beauty of physics and animation

I love love love this animation by Xiangjun Shi. Everything in her portfolio (http://www.xiangjunshi.com/film.html) is worth taking a look at!

And that dual degree program she took (see http://risd.brown.edu/) sounds so cool! It's exciting to see more and more universities offering programs that encourage students to combine their interests in the arts and sciences. They work together so beautifully!

Why Ecology & Environmental Science is Everyone's Business
Our most recent +Science on Google+ Posterside Hangout on Ecology and Environmental Science was excellent and well worth watching in full. It highlighted the intersections between climate change the social consequences of environmental damage. The presentations covered the measurement of air quality; disease outbreak amongst fish; and the relationship between extreme thunderstorms and global warming. Below I give a detailed summary of the points I was most interested in as a social scientist (I will do the same for our previous hangouts).

I urge you to watch the presentations in full and comment on the talks from your perspectives. I am particularly interested in different social science reactions to these talks: how can we make a contribution to weather and marine sciences using the ecological frameworks and methods... more »
