I learned about this app yesterday. You can pay to have a satellite take a high-resolution picture of somewhere on the Earth. It will alert you when it is going to take the picture so you can run out and be in it.

I think this would be a really cool idea for a highschool class picture or a big family reunion... however I think the logistics might be a bit limiting right now.

A few hundred I think. You'll have to take a look for the exact price.

If you enjoy men's choir and/or 'a capella' you should hear this. It is beautiful.

This looks cool!
The RMP² insoles could lead to a new generation of versatile power meters.

Surely, forgiveness is the only way we can break the cycle of hate.

This is not to say we approve of the actions but that we won't harbor hate and pass it forward to others. In fact I am appalled by what happened in Charleston.

It takes a lot of insight for someone to see past the pain and be able to forgive after a horrific action like this.

I can't imagine the suffering these families must be going through. I am doing the only thing that I can think of to help, and that is taking some time to write and hopefully get other people to think about forgiveness and maybe change their life for the better.

I have never had a family member killed, but I have experienced the miracle of forgiveness (forgiving and being forgiven) in my life. I hope that more people can experience it too.
Appearing in court to address the shooter, family members gave testimonials of forgiveness that stunned a nation with their power and faith.

+Doyin Oyelaran​ I agree it is rough. Semantically, I would say that forgiveness doesn't lose its power. Rather it can take more power to forgive someone when it becomes apparent that they are not remorseful and will likely not change.

However if we do not forgive and instead perpetuate stereotypes and biases (of any kind) we are ultimately injuring ourselves and those that come after us.

I'm not saying it is easy. I'm not saying it would be simple for me if someone murdered my family member.

In this case forgiving doesn't mean the withholding of justice from the guilty he should definitely be prosecuted. Instead it means the personal healing and liberation the victims can obtain from embracing kindness and understanding instead of hate and revenge.

Thinkpads are awesome.... Combining best current technology with the best historic features would be amazing.

Extremely interesting and eye opening.
The jobs picture has changed profoundly since the 1970s. This map shows how those changes played out across the country.

Thanks to this post to help me how to learn how to use the .attributes file in a git repo to ignore specific lines of code (useful when I want to add specific debugging lines to code but don't want to commit them to a repo).

Pretty useful!
