Enjoy the sunshine! Hiking in Northern California...
Living in the Bay Area means that our average, everyday views are just as spectacular as some of the best in the world. (We like to think so, anyway.) Here are five of our favorite short hikes with spectacular views along the way.

From killer new productivity apps, to some of the most addicting games to ever land on the iPhone, you'd be forgiven for not being able to choose the best offerings of the year.

This simple invention could have an astronomical effect
Over one sixth of the world’s population is without clean water – that’s around one billion people suffering from malnutrition at this very moment. Water.org states that 3.4 million people die each year from water, sanitation, and hygiene-related issues, and about 6000 children die every day for the same reason, hence this issue can be […]

Several intersecting Circles here in this "new" essay from Isaac Asimov published at +MIT Technology Review. The following pullquote may become my new e-mail sig line:

It is only afterward that a new idea seems reasonable.

But this one is all right too:

Obviously, then, what is needed is not only people with a good background in a particular field, but also people capable of making a connection between item 1 and item 2 which might not ordinarily seem connected.

Top 50 Rich Media Social Marketing Influencers to Follow on Twitter
Who are the influencers on Twitter that you should you be following?

I'm honored to be included in this list from Cision of the "Top 50 Rich Media Social Marketing Influencers" - a list of people they say are shaping the future of social media.

How was this list determined? +Cision North America says they "searched high and low for the top 50 media rich social influencers on Twitter by leveraging CisionPoint‘s Influencer Search and by receiving a high score in relevancy (the volume of on-topic tweets related to rich media), timeliness (recent tweets related to the topic), engagement (retweets, replies and mentions), and cone of influence (connection to other influencers in the space), to find the experts on rich media social networks that you NEED to follow."

Pin it for later: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/159526011777068811/

A virtual reality brain training game can detect mild cognitive impairment

Greek researchers demonstrated the potential of a virtual supermarket cognitive training game as a screening tool for patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) among a sample of older adults. MCI is a condition that often predates Alzheimer's disease (AD) and is characterized by memory loss and inability to execute complex activities such as financial planning.

Interesting, beautiful illustrations
 
Life, loss, love and being human.
Like people, artworks endure—and sometimes succumb to—pandemics, disasters, and wars. Museums preserve the survivors. Archives and libraries (such as the Getty Research Institute) both deepen our appreciation of what remains and help us piece together the histories of what does not.

Some gorgeous photos of illuminated manuscripts, along with some meaningful reflections on the human condition. Bryan Keene writes some illuminating (forgive the pun) prose which accompanies each artifact. There is much worthy of quotation and further exposition. 

One of the losses we suffer in the modern world is that we see the past as a foreign land, full of names and dates disassociated from ourselves. There is no otherness like the otherness of the dead. But in collections like these we have an opportunity to reacquaint ourselves with a common life all human beings share.

These works are not "Medieval" or "Roman Catholic" or even "religious" as if that sets them apart from who or whatever we are. Art is human, and we can know these masters, though we cannot name them, in that we also know better ourselves.
The Iris is the Getty's online magazine. Launched in April 2010, it is written by the staff, volunteers, scholars, interns, and others at the Getty's two Los Angeles campuses—the Getty Center in Los Angeles and the Getty Villa in Malibu—and around the world.
