I think it's funny that they attribute their long-standing Republican leaning to conservatism. The first third of that 126 years, the Republican party was the more economically progressive of the two major parties, and it was the more progressive party on race and gender issues for over half of that period.

I can't disagree with their reasoning for endorsing Clinton, though. Conservatism vs liberalism aside, Trump is scary.

I'm happy we're able to help Krebs stay up.
John Gilmore, an American entrepreneur and civil libertarian, once famously quipped that “the Internet interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.” This notion undoubtedly rings true for those who see national governments as the principal threats to free speech.

+David Kågedal given that the site just recently changed hosts in the past day or so, maybe your ISP caches DNS longer than normal?

Good for these girls. Now if we could just get the rest of the US to stop objectifying our girls.
Portland Public Schools' new policy could be a game-changer.

Young Scientist creates Smart Rice Paddies

Rice is the staple food of over half the world's population. According to Wikipedia, rice provides as much as one-fifth of the calories humans consume, either as food they eat themselves or feed/fodder for their livestock. As such an important crop, it's surprising how little attention has been given to improving crop yields or environmental impacts.

Fifteen-year-old Mansha Fatima wanted to find out if using inexpensive automation systems would show an improvement in crop yields and a reduction in water usage, both of which would improve the lives of farmers in her home country, India.

As it turns out, she was on the right track. Her experimental "smart" rice farm showed both an improvement in water usage and crop production: a nearly 13% increase in rice production, and an astounding 30% decrease in water usage. That is a remarkable improvement!

Read more about her experiment here: http://selfrescuingprincesssociety.blogspot.com/2016/09/science-fair-rock-star-mansha-fatima.html

Nifty (tho on the general Google blog instead of the photos blog is... confusing me).

Any word if we'll be able to edit the concept movies that are generated? (And I mean on the web and all devices, not just some devices as video editing is now?)

Ah, yes...took me a bit into the article to recognize the author as he's dropped the "things I won't work with" title that was long common to this subset of his posts. His one about FOOF is still a personal favorite.

The guards at an Alabama prison have gone on strike in solidarity with the striking prisoners at the same facility.

I have no words.

+Dor Kleiman it means that Google+ is officially one of the products that fall under Google Apps contracts, rather than just an incidental product with no guarantees.

Someone made this dream couch line up on Tumblr, and now I can't stop thinking about how awesome it would be.

(source: http://buff.ly/2cP3BgR)

From left to right it's: Dame Judi Dench, Meryl Streep, Dame Julie Andrews, Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Helen Mirren, and probably-soon-to-be-Dame Emma Thompson.

I mean, it could be even more awesome, but it would probably create some kind of singularity.
