In defense of all the time I spend watching funny internet video clips:
Joyful laughter and meditation look similar in the brain, new research suggests. A small study from Loma Linda University researchers shows that when people engage in humor-associated mirthful laughter, their brain wave frequencies are similar to...

Did you feel that earthquake at 3:10 p.m.?
The US Geological Survey confirms what you probably felt if you live in North Texas: There was a pretty decent-sized earthquake at 3:10 p.m. It was a 3.5-magnitude quake, reports…

To get Christmas ideas, I looked at the top Google searches.  Bethany Mota?  Dream on!  Shaving kits?  Now that's a possiblity.  Sweater dresses.  Hrmm.  Apple watch?  How much is that?  What is a "piyo" workout?  http://www.google.com/trends/2014/

Christmas is only two weeks away, and I usually tune out the Christmas music, because most of it is overdone and poorly done.  I really found this to be excellent, though.

Here's an article about cold fusion without a punchline. Did it just get real?

You should sit in meditation for twenty minutes every day — unless you’re too busy; then you should sit for an hour.

+Skrillex FanPage​​ was in the neighborhood last night and I danced my feet off til well past 4am to an odd but great blend of electro, deep house, hip hop and signature Skrillex heavy beats. That dude has an amazing amount of energy and I could tell he loves the music.

This adds a twist to everything I thought about heredity and evolution.
 
Transgenics abound in nature

Aeon has a fine piece collecting the current knowledge on how pervasive gene-swapping among species truly is.  Thus one of the major tenets of anti-GMO activism evaporates:

”Genetic promiscuity is far more prevalent in nature than we realised. This fact alone is not an argument in favour of GMOs; simply because something occurs in nature without assistance from humans does not mean it is inherently good or bad. Confronted with this fact, however, we can no longer pretend that gene-mixing between species is ‘unnatural’, that it is some misguided practice that would never exist if not for our meddling latex-gloved hands. We did not invent gene transfer; DNA did.“
Genes that leap from one species to another are more common than we thought. Does this shake up the tree of life?

Alan Turing deserved so much more.
 
This piece about @jgrahamc's campaign to get the UK gov to apologize to Alan Turing shows why +Steven Levy's Backchannel on Medium is so great at telling the inside story of events and people that matter in tech. 

I am delighted that I was able to turn Steven on to John Graham Cumming's story, which demonstrates how a geek with a cause can use his skills to make a big difference.
John Graham-Cumming used cunning and data to get the apology

This beach is free, and has a bit of gravel, so lake shoes or flip flops are a good idea. The water is shallow and the bottom is mostly sandy. There is a large grassy area for playing ball or flying a kite. There are some covered picnic tables with grills and free parking, albeit limited. The bathrooms near the gate have flush toilets and the grounds are well kept. I liked this place overall, and it's a great free place to hang out with the family, play, and cool off on a hot day. The wind surfers, kite surfers, paddle boat/board folks were having a lot of fun. The beach has few large rocks, so some people tied their boat up here for breaks between tubing sessions.

They have the best wing value, but there's somewhat of a wait.
