Robert Best2,685Google+ Relevance CircleWhat people of "relevance" do we have in common? Care to share?This big shared circle contains my most "relevant" circles according to G+. It also only contains people/profiles who post publicly (Either occasionally or prolifically).Do you recognize others in the list? (I think the probability is high)As far as I know, the visual beside the "Add people" button below shows you the 8 people from this circle who are most "relevant" to you. Also, if you click that add people button, the list inside is ordered by "relevance".Some people in this circle I know very well... others I haven't met at all (Besides interfacing with what they share publicly on G+) I'm curious, what circles do we share of high relevance? Give a few people shout outs! Let's have a random chat.You were likely notified of this post... I normally don't share to any of my specific circles, so as to avoid sending out unwanted notifications... But since I have you and your attention here... HELLO! Have we talked before? Why do you think I have you circled? What's of relevance for you? (Besides people on G+) If we do know each other... Have we been in touch lately? If not, let's please catch up!2015-03-03 01:03:39455111

Don’t Be So Sure the Economy Will Return to Normal

Here is another change that might be a broader sign of a pending reset: A heavy burden of adjustment in the overall labor market is being borne by the young. Wages for the typical graduate of a four-year college have dropped more than 7 percent since 2000, and the labor force participation rate of the young has been falling. One consequence is that young people are living at home longer and receiving more aid from their parents. They also seem to be less interested in buying their own homes.

Lab grown meat thirty thousand times cheaper than 18 months ago

In 2013, it cost $325,000 to make lab grown meat for a burger made from cultured muscle tissue cells. Now the cost is $11 for a quarter pound lab grown patty.

Dutch Professor Mark Post, the scientist who made world's first laboratory grown beef burger believes so-called "cultured meat" could spell the end of traditional cattle farming within just a few decades.

Data farming. Literally.

When Larrabee began using such sensors, he had to walk into the fields to read each one individually — a process so laborious that he sometimes did it just once a week. But now, every 15 minutes, readings from the 25 sensors are fed into a network of solar-powered information-gathering stations scattered through the orchard. One of the stations transmits that information to a main database via cell signal. Larrabee uses his smartphone or tablet to log on to see that data, which is available almost instantaneously. Using a software platform called PTC ThingWorx, he sees two color-coded gauges for each sensor — blue means too much water in a given location, red not enough. Combined with data from weather stations around the property, the information helps Larrabee decide when to irrigate, where to do so, and how much water to use, either to maximize growth or toavo... more »

"Everything we do, every time I turn a pump on, everything costs money," he says. "If I can manage my irrigation to exactly what I need, I'm not running the risk of overdoing it. I'm managing the health of the orchard better. I would equate that to a longer life of that orchard, to better crops, better-quality products."___

Domino's pizza crust used to ID suspect in DC quadruple murder

A 34-year-old man with a criminal history has been identified as a suspect in the brutal May 13 torture and murders of a wealthy family in Northwest Washington, D.C. thanks to a pizza crust found in their home. Law enforcement sources told the Washington Post that they've ID'd the man, Daron Dylon Wint, using DNA evidence that came from the crust of a Domino's pizza. It was ordered to the family's home the night before the bodies were found and wasn't destroyed in the fire.

Three-year ocean voyage discovered thousands of new, unfamiliar viruses

"Surprisingly despite several decades of prior marine viral research, only 39 of these 5,000 viral populations were similar to previously known viruses," Brum says. "This means that the most abundant and widespread viral populations in the oceans have yet to be characterized — but now we have an idea of what viruses are important targets for future investigations."

MIT’s Humanoid Robot Goes to Robo Boot Camp

As one of the Darpa Robotics Challenge’s 25 robot finalists, Atlas will be representing Tedrake’s team at the 2015 challenge in Pomona, California in two weeks. Its purpose in life—along with the other finalists—is to be the best search-and-rescue robot possible. In terrain too dangerous for humans to traverse, a robot that can lift hundreds of pounds and work power tools could save lives without endangering others. The challenge will put those skills to the test.

Most European men descend from a handful of Bronze Age forefathers

Researchers determined DNA sequences from the Y chromosomes of 334 men belonging to 17 populations from Europe and the Middle East. The study shows that almost two out of three (64%) modern European men belong to just three young paternal lineage. Geneticists have discovered that most European men descend from just a handful of Bronze Age forefathers, due to a 'population explosion' several thousand years ago.

Stone tools found in Kenya are the oldest ever discovered

Researchers digging in Kenya say they've found the oldest stone tools ever discovered, at 3.3 million years old — pushing the record back by around 700,000 years. That places these tools before the birth of Homo, the genus that includes modern humans; as such, it calls into question the conventional belief that it was species within Homo that first learned how to work with stone tools. The findings are being published today in Nature.

Iron levels in brain predict when people will get Alzheimer's

Studies have suggested that people with Alzheimer's also have higher iron levels in their brains. Now it seems that high iron may hasten the disease's onset. Researchers at the University of Melbourne in Australia followed 144 older people who had mild cognitive impairment for seven years. To gauge how much iron was in their brains, they measured ferritin, a protein that binds to the metal, in their cerebrospinal fluid. For every nanogram per millilitre people had at the start of the study, they were diagnosed with Alzheimer's on average three months earlier.

Google Dropping Hints About its Next Big Product

the company will “announce some things around Cardboard that aren’t made of cardboard,” says Google’s Clay Bavor. Intriguing.

I caught up with Bavor on the outskirts of the SVVR Expo in San Jose, California... and sure enough, Google’s ambitions for virtual reality are greater than that. Bavor says the original Cardboard was just the tip of the iceberg—the beginning of Google’s journey into the VR space. “Our ambitions don’t end there,” he assures me. He hints that though the original Cardboard was intentionally designed to be limited—without a headstrap to keep it on your head, and with a limited field of view—those limitations might not last.

How will Google shake up the virtual reality landscape at Google I/O on May 28th? I can’t say, but Bavor assures me that we’ll want to be there—andthat the future of Google Car... more »

7 books Bill Gates recommends you read this summer

In true fashion, there are some brainier books that will make you think, including On Immunity and Should We Eat Meat?, but also some more fun ones, like Hyperbole and a Half. “You will rip through it in three hours, tops,” writes Gates. “But you’ll wish it went on longer, because it’s funny and smart as hell. I must have interrupted Melinda a dozen times to read to her passages that made me laugh out loud.”

Awe may promote altruistic behavior

"Our investigation indicates that awe, although often fleeting and hard to describe, serves a vital social function. By diminishing the emphasis on the individual self, awe may encourage people to forgo strict self-interest to improve the welfare of others," said Paul Piff, PhD, assistant professor of psychology and social behavior at the University of California, Irvine. He was lead author of the study, which was published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

Awe is that sense of wonder we feel in the presence of something vast that transcends our understanding of the world. People commonly experience awe in nature, but also in response to religion, art and even music.

Why I Started Using Gaming Peripherals to Get Real Work Done

I might give this a try.

Mouse buttons are a revelation: I feel this needs its own bullet point because I never realized how lazy my right-hand’s thumb is. With the G600 I got another twelve buttons I could press without moving taking my hands off the mouse. It’s a little disorienting at first, but once you get used to it, you’ll wonder how you can live without it.

Making Hardware Is a Total Pain. But Not in This Factory

What Church really wanted was for manufacturing to work more like cloud computing, where you can simply request the resources you need through the web. He wanted to be able to upload his designs to a manufacturer, get a quote automatically, and, when the time comes, order a batch of prototypes with a push of a button, instead of having to spend hours and hours going over spreadsheets with sales reps. That didn’t exist, so, along with electrical engineer Parker Dillmann, he started a factory called MacroFab that lets hardware designers do just that.

He wanted to be able to upload his designs to a manufacturer, get a quote automatically, and, when the time comes, order a batch of prototypes with a push of a button, instead of having to spend hours and hours going over spreadsheets with sales reps. That didn’t exist, so, along with electrical engineer Parker Dillmann, he started a factory called MacroFab that lets hardware designers do just that.___

Imagination beats practice in boosting visual search performance

Practice may not make perfect, but visualization might. New research shows that people who imagined a visual target before having to pick it out of a group of distracting items were faster at finding the target than those who did an actual practice run beforehand.

3D Food Printing

I am all for the 3D printing movement but don't think we need additional reasons for consuming heavily processed food.

The system is basically a simple 3D printer with a heated extrusion head that takes small cartridges of marzipan, chocolate, and fudge. You can print a few dozen little objects – buildings or sugar frogs – with each cartridge.

A darker side of the maker movement: home-brew heroin?

Humble fungi and a home-brewing kit could soon do what the combined might of the West failed to – halt the thriving poppy industry in Afghanistan, the source of 80 per cent of the world's opium. Genetically engineered yeasts could make it easy to produce opiates such as morphine anywhere, cutting out the international drug smugglers and making such drugs cheap and more readily available.

Yeasts capable of doing this do not exist yet, but none of the researchers that New Scientist spoke to had any doubt that they soon will.

Electroloom Is A 3D Fabric Printer In The Making

3D printing is pushing into all sorts of areas, allowing for rapid prototyping of plastic and metal components, circuit boards and even putting putting an alternative spin on food production — or offering a lower cost way to construct living tissue structures for drug testing. Well here’s another big hope for the technology: wearable 3D printed clothes. (Not just the elaborate art pieces being currently created out of jointed plastics.)

First Steve Jobs trailer shows Michael Fassbender as the Apple founder

Leaked emails from Sony Pictures showed that Steve Jobs had something of a torturous development process. The movie was originally in production at the studio, with David Fincher set to direct, but it slipped from Sony's grasp to Universal in late 2014. Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle is now at the helm, working with a script written by West Wing creator and The Social Network writer Aaron Sorkin. With its production problems apparently ironed out, and an accomplished cast in place, the movie's finally set for release on October 9th.

Ad Tech Is Dead, Long Live Marketing Tech

According to new research from Perceptions Group, programmatic ad buying is expected to increase by 21 percent this year, largely driven by demand among marketing pros and agencies. The real opportunity in programmatic is so much bigger than the current narrative about automated ad buying. While it will continue to represent an area of innovation and growth in digital display advertising, expect to see new success stories emerge across other marketing functions as well as new channels like inbound customer calls, radio and television.

Don’t Be So Sure the Economy Will Return to Normal

Here is another change that might be a broader sign of a pending reset: A heavy burden of adjustment in the overall labor market is being borne by the young. Wages for the typical graduate of a four-year college have dropped more than 7 percent since 2000, and the labor force participation rate of the young has been falling. One consequence is that young people are living at home longer and receiving more aid from their parents. They also seem to be less interested in buying their own homes.

A Shared Future, A Global Economy Of Haves And Servants

Markets are huge, global and fast evolving as the falling middle class of the developed world separates into consumers and producers that need to work harder, longer, more hours to make fraying ends meet. This vast tide is combining with rising developing country middle classes. Global macro is the lens through which we see these opportunities. Macro trends are fueling the sharing economy and are also contributing to the rise of developing middle classes and the declines in some developed middle classes.

We will see an economic evolution further toward buyers of labor and further away from sellers of labor.___

Lab grown meat thirty thousand times cheaper than 18 months ago

In 2013, it cost $325,000 to make lab grown meat for a burger made from cultured muscle tissue cells. Now the cost is $11 for a quarter pound lab grown patty.

Dutch Professor Mark Post, the scientist who made world's first laboratory grown beef burger believes so-called "cultured meat" could spell the end of traditional cattle farming within just a few decades.

After Revolution 2.0

Given sufficient wealth and technical infrastructure, could new networked governments and institutions be constructed and sustained on the fly, by smart and capable people (like Egypt’s Wael Ghonim) who find themselves guiding / riding the wave of revolution? Eventually, theoretically, yes. Could that happen in, say, Egypt today? Of course not: not even close. Estonia, maybe, but Estonia doesn’t need a revolution.

The dark irony is that much of the world is developed enough that technology can help its oppressed join together into powerful movements, far more easily than would have been possible even a decade ago — but not yet developed enough that the slow, painful, and brutally difficult process of rising from the ashes of the old regime has gotten any easier.

The Seasteading Institute has also come to appreciate that the middle of the ocean is less inviting than early renderings suggest. It now hopes to find shelter in calmer, government-regulated waters. According to its most recent vision statement, “The high cost of open ocean engineering serves as a large barrier to entry and hinders entrepreneurship in international waters. This has led us to look for cost-reducing solutions within the territorial waters of a host nation.”

Creepy Ads Use Litterbugs’ DNA to Shame Them Publicly

NEXT TIME YOU’RE about to toss a cigarette butt on the ground, consider this freaky fact: It takes less than a nanogram (or less than one billionth of the mass of a penny) of your dried saliva for scientists to construct a digital portrait that bears an uncanny resemblance to your very own face. For proof look to Hong Kong, where a recent ad campaign takes advantage of phenotyping, the prediction of physical appearance based on bits of DNA, to publicly shame people who have littered.

It is possible now to see the number of cars in retail parking areas. In the near future, the eyes in the sky will be able to learn if the shoppers are leaving happier or angry from Wal-Mart or Home Depot.

There are now opportunities to visually track international oil reserves in real-time, unlike in the past when this data was proprietary. Oil reserve tanks have adjustable roofs that change their height depending on how much oil is being stored. Photos showing the changing length of the shadows as the sun passes over at specific times will show how much oil remains in each tank and the rate at which the reserves change.

Digitizing Neurons: Researchers step up to BigNeuron challenge with big computing resources

Supercomputing resources at an American lab will support a new initiative designed to advance how scientists digitally reconstruct and analyze individual neurons in the human brain. Mapping the complex structures of individual neurons, which can contain thousands of branches, is a labor-intensive and time-consuming process when done by hand. BigNeuron's goal is to streamline this process of neuronal reconstruction -- converting two-dimensional microscope images of neurons into 3-D digital models.

What does the rapid advance of Artificial Intelligence mean for humanity?

When machine intelligence arrives (if it does), what will have happened? Computers with personalities would be akin to the discovery of alien life in other galaxies. Yet humanists argue that mindless automation will continue to get more powerful, and more pervasive, but fundamentally the world remains ours to create. Humanists thus refocus the discussion on real consequences of unbridled automation, and the diminishment of human excellence resulting from over excitement about machines.

Bad memories drive lab rats to rescue drenched companions faster

An experiment testing whether empathy can drive behaviour in rats has found that, when a dry rat observes a distressed rat trapped in a wet chamber, it will free it from its cage. Not only are these rats willing to help others, they do so faster if they themselves have previously suffered a soaking. "This suggests that knowing that soaking is distressing enhances the rats' motivation to help their cage mate," says Nobuya Sato of Kwansei Gakuin University in Japan. "We think this comes from empathy."

Wolfram has created a website that will identify any image you throw at it

The new image project joins Google's Goggles and Amazon's Firefly as rapid identification tools, though is notably designed without the intent to try and sell you anything with what it finds. It also comes just a little while after Flickr's new Magic View, as well as Microsoft's research site that determines people's genders and age based on photos. Unlike Microsoft though, Wolfram says it keeps a thumbnail version of the photo after you've uploaded it (so it can be shared with other people), and that it's collecting the images to keep on training its system, so be mindful of what you send in.
