Jason Darrell20,419A Circle of Bloggers -|- FYIOver time, this circle has fluctuated in populace and purpose. It's simply called "Blogger" - at one point or another, I've read a blog, liked what I've seen and added the author thus.There will be some noticeable absences. I have Pro Copywriters, G+ on Steroids and Google Awesome circles, too. If you're not in here, blog and I engage regularly, you're in one of those.However, being in this circle doesn't preclude you from being in those others. I know several people here I have in multiple circles.This isn't a 'shared circle' as in: add your name, plus 1 it and share it.These peops have been hand-picked by me over (almost) 3 years. And, according to Circloscope, all have posted content within the last 6 weeks (unless they're exceptionally talented and they warrant inclusion due to the magnitude of their blogging skills, in which case I've left them in).Lastly, if you're included and have never posted content in your life, accept my apologies and drop me a note to be removed.2014-07-11 11:43:174091005CC G+

When we launched Google+ over three years ago, we had a lot of restrictions on what name you could use on your profile. This helped create a community made up of real people, but it also excluded a number of people who wanted to be part of it without using their real names. 

Over the years, as Google+ grew and its community became established, we steadily opened up this policy, from allowing +Page owners to use any name of their choosing to letting YouTube users bring their usernames into Google+. Today, we are taking the last step: there are no more restrictions on what name you can use. 

We know you've been calling for this change for a while. We know that our names policy has been unclear, and this has led to some unnecessarily difficult experiences for some of our users. For this we apologize, and we hope that today's change is a step toward making Google+ the welcominga... more »

John Oliver had a great piece talking about income inequality in the US, and how people perceive it. The key point, which he does a great job of explaining, is how people perceive laws which protect the rich at their own expense as being in their favor, in case they might become rich in the future: there's a profound psychology behind that. As he puts it, "I can clearly see this game is rigged... which is what's going to make this so sweet when I win this thing!"

There are actually many deeper levels to this thought which he doesn't go in to, but which also affect us deeply. The belief that "most people who want to get ahead can make it if they are willing to work hard" -- held by 60% of Americans according to a Pew study -- has as its other side the implication that if you don't get ahead, that means you personally failed.

Dear Supreme Court:

Among other interesting consequences of the Hobby Lobby decision, you've just given every single person in the country effective line-item veto power over most laws: any person or "closely-held corporation" can invoke strict scrutiny on anything by simply saying "I don't wanna." (Or rather, "this violates my deeply-held religious beliefs," but go ahead and try to define that one as anything stronger than "I don't wanna." Half the Christian denominations would burn you at the stake.)

You asked for it, you got it.

If you wanted to purchase large quantities of stolen human brains, where would you go? eBay, or the local Dairy Queen? If you answered "either one," then you're obviously ready to... okay, I'm not sure exactly what you're now ready to do, except perhaps to understand the Great Indianapolis Brain Robbery, which was neatly wrapped up late last year with the help of a San Diego artist who called the police after becoming suspicious that the human brains he had just bought on eBay might be stolen. 

Wait, what?

"Corporations enjoy tons of rights and privileges that biological beings should be salivating over. [...] On federal tax returns, individuals can deduct either the sales taxes they paid or their state income taxes, not both; for companies, these deductions are all-you-can-eat. If people were treated like companies, we could also start deducting the first dollar we spend on health care, rather than just the medical spending that exceeds 10 percent of our adjusted gross incomes. Home-buying would also become more attractive. Right now there are limits to how much mortgage interest humans can deduct. But if you analogize your primary residence to a “corporate headquarters” and your vacation homes to “branch offices,” you can deduct the full interest on every McMansion you ever buy.

The article linked is very technical, but the key takeaway is this: a team has figured out a way to manufacture a whole variety of chemical catalysts which use depleted Uranium as the key ingredient. These catalysts can do something that's generally very difficult: convert very simple carbon compounds like CO2 into all sorts of useful compounds. 

There's a lot of work that still needs to be done to turn these initial results into real engineering, and a lot of ways in which the engineering could turn out not to work in practice, but if it comes together, this could simultaneously turn depleted Uranium from a hazardous byproduct into a useful material, help usher in whole new categories of ways to get rid of excess CO2, and help find new ways to synthesize important organic compounds (everything from industrial gases used to make other things to plastic and nylon) without using larger... more »

Damn -- this sounds like fun. Angela Fritz got to stand in a wind tunnel to see just what category 3 hurricane winds feel like. The highest winds I've ever been in were 95mph stead, 120mph gusts -- that from living in Boulder, where our peculiar geography leads to some fairly intense windstorms in the spring.

An important development in the Ukraine situation: Russia (not separatists aligned with Russia, but the Russian Army itself) has started shelling positions inside Ukraine, is massing heavy weapons along the border, and appears to be preparing to transfer much heavier weaponry, including tanks, APC's, and 9A52-4 "Tornado" surface-to-surface missiles to their aligned forces.

Apparently, in the aftermath of the MH17 shootdown, the pretense of Russia having only indirect involvement is going away, and there is now an open war between Russia and Ukraine.

It's worth noting that prior to this, Russia has been very careful about the weapons it supplied to insurgent forces, limiting them to weapons which are known to be in the Ukrainian army's inventory: this made it very hard to tell which weapons were Russian-supplied and which were captured, aiding plausible... more »

"South Texas businessman Chris Mapp, 53, told this editorial board that ranchers should be allowed to shoot on sight anyone illegally crossing the border on to their land, referred to such people as 'wetbacks,' and called the president a 'socialist son of a bitch,' the editorial reads.

Mapp later defended his remarks to the San Antonio Express-News, claiming use of the racial epithet is as "normal as breathing air in South Texas."

“We can't have illegal immigrants, drug cartels, human traffickers or terrorists coming across our border,” Mapp said. “Our borders can either be sealed by choice or force, and so far choice hasn't worked.”

D&D holds a special place in my heart: it was my very first exposure to the idea of role-playing games, many long years ago. But as time went by, it became clearer and clearer that this was a game of Fridge Horror (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FridgeHorror): if you back away from the game's conceits for a moment, you realize that it's all about playing roving bandits and murderers, with lots of heroic tropes stacked on top of it. (Which is to say, it's surprisingly similar to the Middle Ages. Seriously, knights are something you run away from.) I'm glad to see that the upcoming 5th Edition -- of which a sample below -- is keeping up the tradition.

The fucked-upedness of this was driven home to me several years ago, when my group of friends decided that it would be fun to pull out an actual D&D module -- an adventure-in-a-box -- and play it, as a lark. The... more »

A "crash blossom" is a sentence -- often a news headline -- which has been so shortened that the meaning becomes incomprehensible or confusing. Classic examples would be "British Left Waffles on Falklands" or "Squad Helps Dog Bite Victim." 

But I think that +The Associated Press has beaten all records for crash blossoms with today's tweet. 

Just for clarity, "crash" really was meant to modify "Malaysia Airlines Flight 17," not "lands." The plane did arrive safely.

Poisonous, Not Venomous, Birds

The words poisonous and venomous are often used interchangeably, but they mean very different things. Before we get to birds, let's get definitions out of the way:

Poisonous: ingestion, absorption, or inhalation of a harmful substance
Venomous: injection of a harmful substance.

The comic by Bird and Moon covers it quite well in fun and simple terms, but what about the poisonous birds mentioned?

In Papa New Guinea, there are birds the locals know as "rubbish birds" as they cannot be consumed. The reasoning? They're toxic, and therefore bitter to taste at minimum. They are the pitohui and the ifrita, and their feathers and flesh contains the poison homobatrachotoxin. As it were, it is the exact same poison that makes golden poison arrow frogs the most deadly in the world to... more »

James Flynn gives a short but extremely interesting talk about what's come to be known as the "Flynn Effect:" average IQ's have been systematically rising over time. He argues that this is driven by our world requiring a greater ability for abstraction: we can look at two different objects and ask what they have in common, and how we can use that commonality, rather than simply treating each object as a wholly unique entity. It's worth watching.

While it's not a proposal I'm willing to sign off on automatically -- measurement of cognitive ability is notoriously hard to define, and often reflects unconscious biases of the test creators -- there is some real meat to the concept. Flynn's proposal is by no means a trivial one: the observed changes are only in certain types of cognitive task, and they've been seen in a range of tests, suggesting an actual... more »

The situation is roughly what you would expect, given what's on the ground: rebel troops are keeping investigators away and making sure that any evidence is removed to be modified by professionals before its release.

The chart isn't exact, and it leaves quite a few groups out, but it gives you at least a rough sense of who hates whom in the Middle East. It does make the simplifying assumption that relationships are symmetric, which is never quite true: what each side gets out of a relationship isn't quite the same as what the other does. For example, it lists Iran and Iraq as being friends, which is true insofar as Iraq has a government which is under significant Iranian influence. This does not mean that the average Iraqi likes Iran, or vice-versa.

Or to put it more simply, "wolves love sheep" does not imply the converse.

The chart does, however, clearly show the first rule of Middle Eastern politics: the enemy of your enemy is very likely your enemy as well, simply one with whom you have at least one objective in common. (Well, OK. The third rule. The first is, never get... more »

This is the first downing of a civilian jetliner in this conflict and, if it were the rebels who brought it down, all kinds of ugly things follow.

In preparation for launching humans into space, lots of science had to be done, to figure out just what people could survive and still remain functional. How, for example, do you design a seat to hold someone in place when they're strapped to the top of a giant explosion? How do you build a parachute that can help them eject or land? And just what happens when people spend time in zero-g?

So around 1960, the USAF released this video, which has everything from people ejecting from jet aircraft to early versions of sensory-deprivation tanks to cats and pigeons trying to navigate in microgravity on an original edition of the Vomit Comet. If you ever wanted to see people doing Science!, this is it.

On the subject of social networks, let me present to you Viking social networks. Or rather, the analysis of the social networks represented in sagas and epic poems, and the rather fascinating things they can tell us.

The one that caught my eye the most: the Táin Bó Cúailinge, the classic Irish epic, has long been thought to be entirely fictional. However, fiction leaves a trace: the mathematical structure of social networks which people make up (who talks to whom, etc) don't match the mathematical structure of "real" social networks. (This is sort of similar to Benford's Law, a method used to detect when people have faked data: it turns out that the distribution of digits found in real data and in numbers that people made up are different) Applying this analysis to the Táin, it was discovered that its graph is halfway between a real and fake one -- and that the fictionalasp... more »

When we launched Google+ over three years ago, we had a lot of restrictions on what name you could use on your profile. This helped create a community made up of real people, but it also excluded a number of people who wanted to be part of it without using their real names. 

Over the years, as Google+ grew and its community became established, we steadily opened up this policy, from allowing +Page owners to use any name of their choosing to letting YouTube users bring their usernames into Google+. Today, we are taking the last step: there are no more restrictions on what name you can use. 

We know you've been calling for this change for a while. We know that our names policy has been unclear, and this has led to some unnecessarily difficult experiences for some of our users.

John Oliver had a great piece talking about income inequality in the US, and how people perceive it. The key point, which he does a great job of explaining, is how people perceive laws which protect the rich at their own expense as being in their favor, in case they might become rich in the future: there's a profound psychology behind that. As he puts it, "I can clearly see this game is rigged... which is what's going to make this so sweet when I win this thing!"

There are actually many deeper levels to this thought which he doesn't go in to, but which also affect us deeply. The belief that "most people who want to get ahead can make it if they are willing to work hard" -- held by 60% of Americans according to a Pew study -- has as its other side the implication that if you don't get ahead, that means you personally failed.

Photos Of A Traffic Jam Stuck In The Woods For 70 Years http://b4in.org/f5cv

Around the town of Chatillon, Belgium, the end of World War II left a few creepy hallmarks of the armistice in the form of long lines of cars left abandoned by the hundreds in the woods.

While one theory goes that the cars belonged to Americans who left them in a hurry on their way off the continent, Bored Panda points out that no one really knows for sure.

While there were initially four giant pileups with over 500 cars, only one remains rotting in the woods, a monument to the inexorable creep of entropy.

The history of our understanding of geology is more complex than you would think. Even in the 1300's, writers were comfortably discussing how fossils had been deposited by gradual changes in sea level and the shapes of the coast, how sedimentary structures were laid down over eons, and generally had a very solid understanding of the "deep history" of the planet. New historical research shows that these writers were far from unusual; in fact, this appears to have been the general consensus throughout the late Middle Ages and Renaissance, and very likely well before that as well. 

It's worth remembering that, contrary to modern ideas of the Middle Ages as being entirely lacking in understanding of the world -- imagining the moon to be made of cheese, the Earth to be flat, and geology to have started a few thousand years earlier ex nihilo -- people were actually reasonably... more »

To stare at the "super black" coating made of carbon nanotubes – each 10,000 times thinner than a human hair – is an odd experience. It is so dark that the human eye cannot understand what it is seeing. Shapes and contours are lost, leaving nothing but an apparent abyss."

His seven-year-old daughter asked him if she could be a real princess, so he found an 800-square-mile patch of desert between Egypt and Sudan that nobody actually claims (because there isn't actually a huge market for uninhabitable swaths of desert) and planted his flag there. And has since reached out to the African Union for assistance in formally establishing the Kingdom of North Sudan, and is talking about establishing good relationships with his neighbors by turning it into an agricultural production center.

I have no idea if he's serious or just doing something a bit crazy to make his daughter smile. But I have to say, there are far worse ways to found a country, and as has been said of another unusual monarch,* he "has never shed blood... has robbed no one, and despoiled no country.

Selecting the right metrics of success is one of the most important things you can do in any project. (In fact, you could say that the entire problem with testing-based education projects is that people teach to the test, and that's different from what they would teach otherwise: which may be a sign that the test is wrong. A good recipe for teaching, I've found, is to first figure out what you want the students to be able to do; then test them by having them actually do it; and then teach to the test as much as you want.)

Here, the state of California is in the process of improving one of the key metrics it uses to evaluate infrastructure projects, namely how it measures the impact of a project on traffic. Up to now, it's used something called "Level of Service," which is basically optimizing for making cars flow as efficiently as possible. This is fine if you're... more »

An interesting article from The Economist about the mess which is states trying to figure out how to assemble and regulate pot industries. My favorite quote: "Like Soviet officials organising the tractor industry, [the state of Washington] must, under I-502, determine a maximum quota for production."

I find it oddly pleasing to see a determinedly Tory paper advocating wider legalization of pot and comparing the states' regulatory frameworks to the USSR. (Which, to be honest, isn't an entirely bad comparison)

I'm fascinated by this, because I had no idea that there even were any Republican Jews in Congress. The Republican Party has become so deeply associated with Christianity and with establishing its legal primacy that a Jew sitting among Tea Partiers would have good reason to be nervous about the party's real intentions. (Much like Israelis have good reason to be nervous about how American Evangelicals love to support the country so much. Israelis actually know what Dominionist theology contains and just what role the Jews play in it -- witnesses to the resurrection of Christ at the End Times, who will then either convert or be thrown down with the enemies of God -- and they also know that these enthusiastic preachers very, very much believe in the proximity of these End Times and that they would be a Good Thing. This makes them what is known as Scary Fuckers to Be Around.)

And for those of you who have encountered a certain voice-recognition system which is prone to transforming "How big is the Serengeti?" into "Show me pictures of spaghetti," you may want to try Google Voice Search: quite apart from being surprisingly good at understanding you, it can do a number of things you may not expect. 

Pro tip #1: Voice Search can correct things. I just said to my phone, "Where's Walia?," which it misunderstood as "Where's Wally?".

A few days ago, the Washington Post reported on a dump of 160,000 communications intercepted by the NSA, talking about the number of people being deliberately targeted versus the number of people incidentally monitored, the intimacy of the conversations and images captured, and so on.

Today, they did something even better, which I wish newspapers would do more often: reported Bart Gellman goes into great detail about how the story was reported, how editorial and phrasing decisions were made, and exactly what was behind the story. It's long, but if you want to understand how things like this are reported on by a careful journalist, this is a great read.
