Following the recent #DOC  decision I discovered this investigation by #MotherJones . It is a very insightful read on the matter.
I know it is a long read but knowledge ain't free right ?

So can we, at the end of the day, take advantage of cognitive biases to improve public health ? I remind Kahneman citing some success about that.
Framing people’s choices differently could boost uptake, economists suggest.

An old picture from 2014. But Roy Hargrove is eternal anyway.
Quincy Phillips behind his drum kit during The Roy Hargrove Quintet show at the New Morning on the 2nd of August 2014. In the middle of the Parisian summer of 2014, Roy Hargrove stopped at the New Morning with his quintet for a two nights show. The quintet members changed since the last time he came to present his album Earfood. Still the show was sleek and we had a groovy night. The line up was the following : Roy Hargrove (Bugle,Trompette), Ju...

You may have missed today the announcement of one of the most important scientific discovery of those last 50 years: the actual measurement on Earth of gravitational waves produced by two black holes merging about a billion year ago.

I strongly invite you to watch the press conference by the #NSF: https://youtu.be/aEPIwEJmZyE?t=1596

I you are curious, you can as well read the paper detailing how it was done: http://journals.aps.org/prl/pdf/10.1103/PhysRevLett.116.061102
If your relativistic curiosity isn't satisfied, there are still plenty of it for you: http://journals.aps.org/general-relativity-centennial

A new upload of Hualien #Airport #Taiwan.
Hualien is an isolated city east of Taiwan. It hosts an important military airbase that shares its runway with a modern civil airport to welcome tourists and visitors. The airport is built with beautiful white and grey marbles produced localy. Each time I few in and left I found this airport totaly empty. The only noise I could hear was the water running in the central fountain and the distant steps of a couple workers. I decided to take a few sh...

27 lines on a cubic

Here's the best thing I know about the number 27. Any smooth surface described by a cubic equation has 27 lines on it!

In general this is true only for complex surfaces, where we look at complex solutions of the cubic equation. For these it takes two complex numbers (rather than two real ones) to say where you are. So they're kind of hard to visualize.

But for this particular surface, drawn by Greg Egan, we can see all 27 lines even if we only look at the real surface formed by the real solutions.

This is the tip of an iceberg I'm just starting to drill down into. For more, visit:
