We're looking for a few good minds!

* Google Life Sciences Analyst Position *

The Baseline Study is a collaborative project between Stanford, Duke, and Google that will investigate the biology and chemistry of a healthy human. The goal is to help find new, and proactive ways to detect and prevent disease. We aim to combine traditional clinical observations of health, e.g. diet and behavior, with molecular and genomic signals. The project will involve the analysis of a wide variety of data sets, ranging from clinical data to comprehensive molecular profiles.

As a Quantitative Analyst for the Baseline Study, you will perform statistical analyses of large, disparate, and complex sets of data. You will consult with other Google Life Sciences teams on studying design, identifying biological targets for new technologies, and formulating new protocols for biological measurement. The team builds analytical tools on an evolving software platform and works closely with software engineers.

For all those fathers out there who don't want to carry around a diaper bag.
The first pants in human history to be designed specifically to replace a diaper bag. Yup!

Google Now crushing it.
Over the course of 3000 voice queries, the search giant shows its digital assistant is way ahead of its rivals.

Today's announcement about the self-driving cars that Google has been working on.  Some custom-built proto-types are being built this year, and a low-speed (25 mph, probably around town) pilot program is planned in the next couple of years in California.

I never really understood the difference between an conference and a symposium... until now.

What happened just after the Big Bang?  Astrophysicists have now directly observed the "first tremors" after the bang, using a lab down near the South Pole.  This evidence adds to dozens of indirect measurements over the last few decades which supports inflation theory.

This is just as cool as the discovery of the Higgs boson!
Detection of gravitational waves supports cosmic inflation theory of how the universe began. The discovery, made in part by Assistant Professor Chao-Lin Kuo, bolsters work of Stanford's Andrei Linde.

It's basically the energy scale of inflation.   If inflation was to be probed by an atom smasher, that is the energy it would need.  Current technology that reached the "Higgs scale" is ~10 TeV, so it's doubtful we'll get there any time soon. Another 10^13 is a pretty tall order....

And Canada (where it originally launched).  Let's hope it keeps spreading.

Science Bling!

Ever wanted to turn lead into gold? Here's something more valuable:

These folks are turning pencil lead into diamond! They put a small amount of pencil lead on top of platinum, and then zapped it with X-rays. And viola - a thin sheet of diamond was produced.
