From How to speak Ragi at: http://cjcherryhmovieinaudio.tumblr.com/post/41848898131/how-to-speak-ragi

The Foreigner series is an epic undertaking that explores politics, diplomacy and the day-to-day culture shock between radically different species as they grow, explore, and evolve (as people, you know, like you do). Cherryh’s exploration of the different cultures is so detailed and in-depth that we’re thinking if this stuff actually happens some time in the future, it’ll unfold exactly as it’s plotted out in these 14 books.  Prepare to have your mind expanded.

Announcing Libra - the Landsat imagery browser you will love

Explore Libra here: http://libra.developmentseed.org/

"Libra is a browser for open Landsat 8 satellite imagery. Use it to browse, filter, sort, and download images.

Each circle on the map represents the number of available images at that location. Filters at the top of the map can be used to select a new date range, cloud cover percentage, and sun azimuth angle."

Liberating Landsat

"We love open imagery. The global development organizations and developing governments that we work with use open satellite imagery for everything from evaluating disaster response, to tracking deforestation, to planning for drought. For our partners, open imagery isn't just a matter of cost; it is a matter of licensing and distribution. They get immediate access to Landsat images... more »

Benedicto: May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. May your rivers flow without end, meandering through pastoral valleys tinkling with bells, past temples and castles and poets towers into a dark primeval forest where tigers belch and monkeys howl, through miasmal and mysterious swamps and down into a desert of red rock, blue mesas, domes and pinnacles and grottos of endless stone, and down again into a deep vast ancient unknown chasm where bars of sunlight blaze on profiled cliffs, where deer walk across the white sand beaches, where storms come and go as lightning clangs upon the high crags, where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you -- beyond that next turning of the canyon walls.

"The paper map may be old-fashioned, but when it comes to Cuba, Van Dam is ahead of the curve. Havana is currently a dark spot on Google Street Maps, and Google hasn't yet released a statement saying when the company will upgrade its coverage. Even if Street Maps did work there, though, there are no guarantees it would have very many users in the near future. With Internet coverage at a scant 5 percent across the country and download speeds reminiscent of the pre-dial-up era, Cuba doesn’t yet have the digital infrastructure to support cell phone cartography. Which leaves room for a handy paper copy renaissance: This is a fleeting moment, Van Damm notes, when “the trusty laminated map trumps” Google views."

The atevi have no feeling of love, but rather man'chi—a loyalty-web to one's leader, one's leader's leader, and so on outward until the Aiji of Shejidan, leader of the aishidi'tat or union of all atevi. Political boundaries are not based on territory, but on association—where their man'chi lies. [...] assassination is a legal and accepted means of settling disputes, provided proper protocol is followed.
From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreigner_universe

Image is the cover from Deceiver by Todd Lockwood depicting paidhi-aiji Bren Cameron, and his atevi family and bodyguard:
“Nandi,” his senior bodyguard said, by way of parting as they reached the door. The four tall atevi who were as close to him as family—closer, in point of fact—were not given a place in the gathering of lords and ladies milling about beyond the foyer, not this evening. The only bodyguards allowed in the gathering to­night (and indeed a veritable wall of black Assassins’ Guild uni­forms guarded that door) were the aiji’s security. 
From excerpt from Protector by tor: http://www.tor.com/stories/2013/03/protector-excerpt

The Foreigner Series by C. J. Cherryh currently stands at 15 novels that immerse the reader in the world of Bren Cameron and the political intrigue of the Atevi. At the beginning of the series, Bren Cameron starts out as the translator struggling to understand a completely alien culture, but he gradually becomes one with the atevi; a Lawrence of Arabia tale filled with suspense, intrigue, and deadly politics. I highly recommend it.___

Waste to heat - the heating system of Gothenburg, Sweden

Gotheburg, Sweden transforms its garbage into heat which is pumped through 620 miles of pipe across the city. The program is so successful that they have to import 100,000 tons of garbage from Britain annually and even extract heat from the sewer system. Overall, Sweden recycles 99 percent of its waste. +Adam Johnson would approve.

Thank you, +Duncan Geere

Mark Crosby has made a Google -style map of Middle-Earth that he thinks would have helped Frodo and Sam in the Lord of the Rings fulfill their quest much easier and faster.

The map comes complete with time via routes, waymarkers, dragon's eye view (instead of satellite view) and an "Eagle option." You see Mark thinks it would have been much more efficient if the Eagles took Sam and Frodo straight to Mordor. Silly Mark. One does not simply fly eagles into Mordor.

"Big enough to be overwhelming, still intimate enough to feel the pulse of time, Black Canyon of the Gunnison exposes you to some of the steepest cliffs, oldest rock, and craggiest spires in North America. With two million years to work, the Gunnison River, along with the forces of weathering, has sculpted this vertical wilderness of rock, water, and sky."

Gorgeous shot and great information. Thank you, +Charles Carrigan Now on the bucket list, too! 

Geology Field Photo: Nonconformity at Black Canyon  

The Black Canyon of the Gunnison is a geologic wonder, exposing incredible steep cliffs of a dark Precambrian gneiss.  The gneiss also contains some schist and most notably some granitic dikes that stand out against the darker rock (both also Precambrian in age).  The canyon is also incredibly narrow for its depth; here at this point of view it is about 1000' across, but nearly 2000' deep!  The canyon is so narrow that sunlight has a difficult time reaching the canyon floor.  Also here you can see a thin, yellowish white layer sitting on top of it - this is the Jurassic Entrada sandstone (~170 Ma), meaning there are hundreds of millions of years separating it from the igneous and metamorphic rocks that it sits on.  This is a classic example of a non-conformity: where sedimentary layers sit on top of igneous or metamorphic rocks.

Conservation and rural-life policies are really two sides of the same policy; and down at the bottom this policy rests upon the fundamental law that neither man nor nation can prosper unless, in dealing with the present, thought is steadily given for the future. 
~ Theodore Roosevelt

More than a billion people have downloaded Google Earth. More than a billion people use Google Maps. They are very comfortable tools for people to explore the planet in high resolution. Most people, originally when Google Earth first came out in 2005, they thought, well, what can I do with it? 

What we’ve helped these groups understand is, you can take the whole world on a virtual guided tour of places on the planet that may be under threat. Whether it’s deforestation of the Amazon or elephants being poached in Africa or Appalachian mountains being blown up for coal in a very unsustainable fashion—often these are happening in remote places, and it’s difficult to communicate to the general public, policy makers, and media, what’s at stake, what’s really happening.

…If I were to say, my fellow citizens, that we shall send to the moon, 240,000 miles away from the control station in Houston, a giant rocket more than 300 feet tall, the length of this football field, made of new metal alloys, some of which have not yet been invented, capable of standing heat and stresses several times more than have ever been experienced, fitted together with a precision better than the finest watch, carrying all the equipment needed for propulsion, guidance, control, communications, food and survival, on an untried mission, to an unknown celestial body, and then return it safely to earth, re-entering the atmosphere at speeds of over 25,000 miles per hour, causing heat about half that of the temperature of the sun--almost as hot as it is here today--and do all this, and do it right, and do it first before this decade is out--then we must be bold.

They get immediate access to Landsat images and can analyze, manipulate, and distribute with almost no restrictions.

To make Landsat data more useful, we've made it easier to use. We built two open source tools for working with Landsat data - Landsat-util and Landsat API. It used to take all day for Development Seed's imagery specialists to turn Landsat data into imagery layers for online maps. With these two tools, any developer can do it in a matter of minutes."

Jerry's Map: A World of the Imagination

In the summer of 1963 I began drawing a map of an imaginary city. The work started as a doodle done in the spare time I had while working at a tedious job. I continued to add to that map through the years until, in 1983, I set it aside to put my free time to other use. The Map was stored in the attic of our home in Cold Spring, New York. It gathered dust. My son, Henry, found it one day while rummaging around. He brought it down to me and asked what it was. Seeing it then triggered me to dust it off and continue the project. It now comprises almost 3100 individual eight by ten inch panels. Its execution, in acrylic, marker, colored pencil, ink, collage, and inkjet print on heavy paper, is dictated by the interplay between an elaborate set of rules and randomly generated instructions.

~ Jerry Gretzinger, 71 Artist and Mapmaker from Jerry's blog here: http://jerrysmap.blogspot.com/

The map has never been displayed in its entirety*, and no one, not even Jerry, knows what his world looks like. "Even he is powerless to say what the outcome will be," says Lynn Staley [Jerry's artist sister-in-law]. "So not only is there great beauty in the map's texture and variation, there is potentially galactic suspense. Will this place, whatever it is, survive or be consumed by the void? What about its inhabitants? And what can we learn from it about our own fate? Is there someone somewhere with another deck of cards like Jer's?"

The world was so beautiful, and there was so much of it: he could gaze forever at the wonder of leaves and not see them all: could inhale the wind and not smell all its scents, hear the sounds of men and horses and not hear all the sounds of the woods, and taste the thousand flavors in stale water and still find it wonderful... because it was not the darkness.

His purpose -- to create out of the insubstance of the air, from a shimmering of light and a fluttering of shadows. that most wonderous of spells, a Shaping.

I just go to that same daydream-spot inside my head that I'm pretty sure all of us have. I don't know if people who don't write for a living actually meet strangers there, but I do, on a regular basis, and I absolutely insist they arrive with a good problem and tell me about it. There are particularly good spots for productive encounters: there's a beach I imagine and if I sit long enough and stare down the length of it, I'm sure someone will come walking down it, and most of them are interesting when they arrive. Sometimes I don't write all I meet, but most of the ones I meet do have interesting backgrounds. And sometimes I find I'm not on that beach at all, but in some space station corridor or in some castle hallway. Once these strangers tell me a little about their worlds I can make up the rest, out of smidges of geology, geography, history, archaeology, and snippets of whole cloth, and once I know their history and their quirks, I can most often figure out the rest of the story. Translation: thinking up new ideas and characters isn't hard. Writing day and night for months ... that's hard.

The Future of Maps: Predictive Analysis & Enhanced Data Collection

"The mapping industry is changing fast and it will affect everything from logistics, food delivery, navigation, search etc.

Fun fact: 80% of actions on the phone are already location-based. The established players in mapping are struggling. OpenStreetMap, microsatellites, open source, drones, crowdsourcing are completely changing the landscape and are introducing a kind of "neogeography". New players like Uber, Lyft, delivery services, running apps are turning into platforms that track the pulse of whats happening in our world through GPS probes - and almost in real-time."

"The mapping industry is changing fast and it will affect everything from logistics, food delivery, navigation, search etc.

Fun fact: 80% of actions on the phone are already location-based. The established players in mapping are struggling. OpenStreetMap, microsatellites, open source, drones, crowdsourcing are completely changing the landscape and are introducing a kind of "neogeography". New players like Uber, Lyft, delivery services, running apps are turning into platforms that track the pulse of whats happening in our world through GPS probes - and almost in real-time."

100 Years of National Geographic Maps: The Art and Science of Where

"Since 1915, National Geographic cartographers have charted earth, seas, and skies in maps capable of evoking dreams."

Crowdsourced cartography will help people find and map more objects. As more devices are connected to the Internet, users will be able to create more personalized maps. Wearable technologies, such as smart watches, will allow an increased capture of geo-data. Of course, society cartographers will still be needed to collect and analyze that data.
~  Juan José Valdés, the Geographer of the National Geographic Society when asked what the next 100 years hold

+charity: water brings clean water to the village so that single mother Tenicia, the best bread maker in Mozambique, can make a living and support her family. Thank you, +Maptia!

A remarkable story by +charity: water about a single mother in Mozambique who is using clean water to build her bread-making business into a better future for her family.

https://maptia.com/charitywater/stories/meet-tencia-mozambique-s-finest-bread-maker

"Every bit of her bread-making process requires water: The dough mixture. Washing hands, utensils, plates and bowls. Even cooking the bread itself.

“Without water it’s impossible to bake…”

Now everything was possible. And for the first time, Tencia could bake as much bread as she wanted."

"The Dragonriders of Pern is a series of science fiction novels, masquerading as fantasy novels. Considered by some to be the Grand Dame of Science Fiction, Anne McCaffrey was very rightfully made the first woman to win both the Hugo and Nebula award back in 1968 and 1969 for her story, 'Weyr Search' which the Pern series grew out of. She is also the first woman to break into the New York Times Bestseller list.

The story follows the story of the descendants of interstellar colonists from earth. These people set out into space to colonize a planet called Pern circling about earth's distance from a star called Rukbat. The system had even snagged a rogue planetoid that spun it close to Pern at erratic intervals. They got there. They settled the place along with some uplifted Dolphins that came with them. They even started some work uplifting some of the really smart and adorable little dragon-like lizards they found there.[...]

When the small red planetoid came in close for a near pass by Pern, our colonists were horrified to find that voracious spore-like ejecta from the 'Red Star' crossed the distances between the two bodies. Worse, these spores when they hit Pern's atmosphere spooled out into filiment like clumps of 'Thread'. Even worse still, this thread when it hit any place lush and green immediately burrowed into the ground, consuming anything organic that it touched, and spread like wildfire.

One scientist noticed that the little lizards they'd been working with voraciously attacked, ate, and even chewed a form of stone that enabled them to breathe fire and destroy the thread. And a plan was hatched. Literally. The humans uplifted and worked over the lizards' genetics. Growing them. Breeding them. Getting them bigger and bigger to aid the humans' fight to survive their new home. They even bred telepathy into the things so they could be communicated with by humans. And the plan worked. But at a cost.

Over successive generations of survival, the dragons did indeed get bred bigger and bigger. Thousands of years pass, with humanity surviving more and more passes of the red star in tandem with their 'dragons'. But with each pass, mankind loses more and more knowledge of their past in the ensuing destruction. [...] In fact, by the advanced time of our first novel, mankind is in a pretty precarious position."

"Forty years ago, Bill and his childhood friend Paul Allen bet that software and personal computers would change the way people around the world worked and played. This bet wasn't exactly a wager. It was an opportunity to make computers personal and empower people through the magic of software. Some people thought they were nuts. But the bet turned out well.
 
Fifteen years ago, the two of us made a similar bet. We started our foundation in 2000 with the idea that by backing innovative work in health and education, we could help dramatically reduce inequity.
