"... the piano struck the pavement and played a final, dissonant, 88-note chord."

OK G+, here's your chance to beat [other social network], which has failed me.

Long ago, my good friend put together an eclectic mixtape for me that I loved.  The tape is long gone but I'm trying to reconstruct it. This is a rough transcription from memory of (the main section of) one song on that tape. It was all instrumental, with a lot of horns and percussion. Can anyone tell me what song this is?

When you go to see an outdoor performance by the Marin Shakespeare Company, this is where you get to be.  And this is just the parking lot!

"Labour doesn't get to win all its arguments, capital doesn't get to. But it's in the tension, it's in the actual fight between the two, that capitalism actually becomes functional"
The creator of The Wire, David Simon, delivered an impromptu speech about the divide between rich and poor in America at the Festival of Dangerous Ideas in Sydney, and how capitalism has lost sight of its social compact. This is an edited extract

This is the best overview for laymen of the Standard Model I've ever seen, by far.
The Standard Model of particle physics is a triumph of science. It's a collection of 17 particles, and four forces. Physicists like to call it "elegant" but to the untrained eye, it looks anything but. Where does this all come from? In this week's Ask a Physicist, we'll find out.
