I like facebook, I really do - but I'm genuinely concerned for its future.

Fascinating read!
When I brought my puppy home last August, I knew he would be fun to play with. I had no idea how entertaining he would be when asleep. He dozed constantly, and more often than not, his whole body —...

OUT of chaos, comes order. A computer that mimics the apparent randomness found in nature can instantly recover from crashes by repairing corrupted data.

Dubbed a "systemic" computer, the self-repairing machine now operating at University College London (UCL) could keep mission-critical systems working. For instance, it could allow drones to reprogram themselves to cope with combat damage, or help create more realistic models of the human brain.

we tell them to shut up and sit down after spending a year telling them how to walk and talk. We teach them how to walk and talk, and they start touching things — "Oh, don't touch that, Junior. Sit down. Stop making noise. Stop banging on the pots and pans." Every one of those is an experiment. It's an experiment in acoustics. But you don't want your pots dirty, so you tell them to stop.

You're afraid your dish might break, so you tell them to stop playing with the china. Well, what's the cost of replacing your dish? A few dollars. If it's expensive, maybe twenty dollars. Why is it that you don't spend that, but you'll easily write a check to send your kid to some fancy school for thirty or forty thousand dollars a year? "Oh, because at the end, they'll have the degree from this school." It ain't about the degree. It's about: How do you think? That doesn't have to come from an institution, it comes from your trajectory through life and whether your appetite for learning, whether your urge to query the unfolding of nature around you is nurtured or quelled. That's the difference. 

What happens, the kid goes and plays in the mud. "Don't play in the mud; you'll get your clothes ..." There's bugs in the mud. That's kinda cool. They turn over a rock. "You'll get dirt on your clothes." There's millipedes under the rock. Let the kid find the millipedes. Plucks the — off the rose — "Don't break the rose like that; that's a rose." No, they want to see what's inside the rose; it's kinda interesting. The middle is not the same as the outside. Let the experiment run its course. - Neil deGrasse Tyson

Too much truth in that.

An historic astronomical circumstance is about to transpire in the skies above Earth (above the skies, technically). A space rock 50 meters wide (160 feet) will be passing just by the good Earth, getting as close as 27,700 kilometers (only 17,200 miles!). Never before has humanity witnessed something so large pass so close to us. But, don't worry – we are not at risk of a “meeting of heavenly bodies”, as they say. This bad boy will be quietly on its way within the day of February 15, 2013 not to be seen again until 2046.

Dated facility but was comfortable and clean. Service was fair at best, but I would wager it was just our server that below expectations and not indicative of the entire facility. The pizza was a bit more greasy than I anticipated, but still very good as well as the fried green beans.
