UFC Fighter Ronda Rousey Has Physics-Based Superpowers. It's like @rjallain wrote this just for me. :) http://www.wired.com/2015/08/ufc-fighter-ronda-rousey-physics-based-superpowers/ 

EG. he calculated the kinetic energy of one of Rousey's punches: "Twenty-five joules! That might not seem like a lot of energy, but just lifting a typical textbook off the floor and onto a table is about 10 Joules. Do this every three seconds. Now weave and dodge at the same time. You will get tired quickly. Or, conversely, imagine getting hit in the face with two textbooks every three seconds. "

A 17th century Renaissance painting reveals how selective breeding changed watermelons. "It's fun to go to art museums and see the still-life pictures, and see what our vegetables looked like 500 years ago," says horticulturist James Nienhuis. http://www.vox.com/2015/7/28/9050469/watermelon-breeding-paintings

"There’s always been this divide between technology — the inanimate stuff that we build — and biology — the living stuff that nature builds. It’s not that we can’t build living things; we just have to figure out how. And that’s exactly what synthetic biologists are trying to do."

Dear Dr. B: Can you make up anything in theoretical physics? (It may sometimes seem like that from the outside looking in, but really, no, you can't.) http://backreaction.blogspot.com/2015/08/dear-dr-b-can-you-make-up-anything-in.html
"Theoretical physicists, as they “make up theories” are not free to just do whatever they like. The standards in physics are high, both in experiment and in theory, because there are so many data that are known so precisely. New theories have to be consistent with all the high precision data that we have accumulated in hundreds of years, and theories in physics must be cast in the form of mathematics;"

Interesting Q&A with philosopher Philip Kitcher: "Current education in science treats all students as if they were going to have scientific careers. They are required to solve problems and memorize lists. For many of them, this kills interest very quickly. In my view, all students should be given an initial opportunity to pursue the science track as far as it goes. But for those who quickly decide that track isn’t for them, a different style of teaching is in order. That should acquaint them with important concepts, give them a sense of the character of scientific work, present some of the wonderful surprises of scientific discovery, and, above all, show how important scientific research continues to be to human life. Science literacy consists in the ability and the desire to follow reports of new scientific advances, throughout your whole life." http://www.3ammagazine.com/3am/74992/

A murder mystery unravels as the camera zooms out and changes angles. "The Pavement was directed by Taylor Engel. It’s a hypnotic short that explores the idea of differing perspectives of a story by showing how much can change as the camera zooms out to reveal more moments and different perspectives."  http://sploid.gizmodo.com/a-murder-mystery-unravels-as-the-camera-zooms-out-and-c-1721168895

Suggestion: The EM Drive Is Getting The Appropriate Level Of Attention From The Science Community. "t's not a perpetual motion machine, doesn't deserve to be dismissed out of hand. But it's far too soon to justify huge research programs into it, even if it is a real effect. We just have to be patient and see how the experiment develops." http://www.science20.com/robert_inventor/suggestion_the_em_drive_is_getting_the_appropriate_level_of_attention_from_the_science_community-156719

Vladimir Nabokov’s Hand-Drawn Sketches of Mind-Bending Chess Problems http://www.openculture.com/2015/07/vladimir-nabokovs-hand-drawn-sketches-of-mind-bending-chess-problems.html 
"For Nabokov, the skill and ingenuity required for composing chess problems paralleled that required for great writing: 'The strain on the mind is formidable,” he wrote in his memoir Speak, Memory, 'the element of time drops out of one’s consciousness.” Puzzling out chess problems and solutions, he wrote, 'demand from the composer the same virtues that characterize all worthwhile art: originality, invention, conciseness, harmony, complexity and splendid insincerity.'"
