why am I getting 'unexpected for' here:

(function () {
    "use strict";
    var i, barebones = ["cat", "dog"];
    if (barebones.length > 1) {
        for (i = 0; i < barebones.length; i += 1) {
            window.alert(barebones[i]);
        }
    }
}());

I like it when there is no direct links to the answers. When I don't understand the reasoning behind a warning, I google, and while I google, I learn a lot of stuff along the way.

Gorgeous, complex music. Big band jazz meets avant-progressive.

Absolutely gorgeous slice of power pop with a gentle bossa nova feel.

Avant-garde prog rock meets Spike Jones. Dave Stewart of National Health (not the guy from Eurythmics) reimagines 'The Collapso'. A glorious racket.

"Sometimes I make music. Over the years, I’ve noticed an interesting pattern of behavior from some musicians—often self-taught—who think of themselves as creative types: they display an aversion to learning any music theory. The logic, they say, is that knowing the theory behind music will somehow constrain their creative abilities. I’ve never understood that logic (and I secretly believe that it’s a retroactive excuse for a lack of discipline). To my mind, I just don’t see how any kind of knowledge or enlightenment could be a bad thing.

Alas, I have seen the same kind of logic at work in the world of web design. There are designers who not only don’t know how to write markup and CSS, they actively refuse to learn. Again, they cite the fear of somehow being constrained by this knowledge (and again, I believe that’s a self-justifying excuse)."

Gordon Pask and Stafford Beer. Two cybernetic giants who are long overdue for a resurgence.

You've got that magic touch, hummingbird.
 
"Rather than just waiting patiently for any pollinator that comes their way to start the next generation of seeds, some plants appear to recognize the best suitors and “turn on” to increase the chance of success, according to a new study published this week.
Being picky may increase access to genetic diversity and thus give the plants a competitive advantage over their neighbors, but there is a risk, the researchers say. If the preferred pollinators decline for any reason, the plants may not reproduce as easily and could decline as well.
These findings stem from the discovery that the showy red and yellow blooms of Heliconia tortuosa, an exotic tropical plant, recognize certain hummingbirds by the way the birds sip the flowers’ nectar. The plants respond by allowing pollen to germinate, ultimately increasing the chances for successful seed formation.
Researchers from Oregon State University and the Smithsonian Institution announced their results in this week’s issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a professional journal. “To our knowledge, these findings provide the first evidence of pollinator recognition in plants,” they wrote.
Matt Betts, an associate professor in the Oregon State University College of Forestry is the lead author. Adam S. Hadley, also at Oregon State, and W. John Kress of the Smithsonian Institution are co-authors. The National Science Foundation provided support for the research.
In experiments at the Las Cruces Biological Station in Costa Rica, Betts and Hadley began by trying to pollinate Heliconia plants by hand. Although such methods are commonly used in plant propagation, the researchers were puzzled by their lack of success. So in an enclosure known as an aviary, they exposed Heliconia to six species of hummingbirds and a butterfly. The team discovered that two types of hummers – violet sabrewings and green hermits – achieved more than 80 percent success in fertilizing the plants.
By controlling the sources of pollen, the researchers excluded the possibility that fertilization could be explained by specific birds carrying higher quality pollen".
