Grandma's Bar
275 Clarence Street, Sydney NSW 2000
One of the few more specialized cocktail bars in Sydney, Grandma's has an excellent selection of rum cocktails (probably the best in town), in addition to the usual cocktail selections. The standard of drinks is consistently high here. Generally speaking, I have never had a problem getting in here, but that's most likely because they let the bar get incredibly crowded. I've spent more than my fair share of time cramped up against the air conditioner outside, due to lack of space. Summary: come for the drinks, but be ready to sacrifice your personal space.
Quality Very Good

Hangout with women in tech+Google Australia 

Why is it important to have a diverse workforce in I.T? What opportunities are out there for female computer engineers in Australia?
 
Join a Hangout with Google engineers Susannah Raub and Katie Bell as they explain why they’re passionate about increasing the impact of women in all aspects of technology. Hosted by +Alan Noble, we’ll also cover how Google is bringing together and celebrating technical women through various scholarships, internships and more.

Look out for our Hangout at +Google Australia on Wednesday 4th July at 1:30 PM Sydney local time (AEST).

Please reshare and if you have any questions about women in technology, add them here to this thread.

Google Sydney is hiring!

We're looking for talented software engineers (both new grads and experienced) with a strong background in fundamental CS that are interested in working with smart people on hard problems with big infrastructure.  In addition to generalists, we're also looking for mobile application developers.

If this sounds interesting, please apply directly or reach out to me.

Testing is slowly becoming the thing I love to do.

Pity my degree has another 2 years to go :(

This is just a lovely analysis by +Randall Munroe  about playing relativistic baseball. The physics seem mostly right, except for the spherical shape of the resulting nuclear explosion; the baseball's motion should instead reshape it into roughly a hyperboloid (same shape as  a sonic boom) with additional widening due to secondary fusion of the debris. 

The fusion will slow down the baseball more than Munroe claims, too. Although it's going very fast, that also means it's hitting a lot of nuclei per second, and that's a lot of explosions. (Even after the original baseball is wholly consumed, there's still a flying blob of very hot nuclei to fuse) Using figures for a standard MLB baseball and air that's basically pure Nitrogen at STP, and approximating 10MeV energy released per fusion event (assuming that it's dominated by fusion of Hydrogen in the baseball with Nitrogen in the air, or Hydrogen in the air with Carbon in the baseball) you end up with a simple differential equation for the speed of the baseball which you can solve numerically. The baseball is brought to a stop within about 300 microseconds, during which it will have traveled about 84km. Since the cone of fire will be dominated by X-rays during this short time interval, it will also spread at the speed of light, with the result that the fireball will look at first somewhat like a cone lying on its side.

So what you'll really see is a very bright flash streaking across the countryside, leaving in its wake an expanding cone of light brighter than the Sun (but tinged noticeably blue) expanding outwards. It will then go through the whole process of getting briefly dimmer before flashing bright again, and then rising upwards as a ball of flame before curving into a mushroom cloud. This cloud would be more than big enough to bounce up against the upper end of the atmosphere before it properly mushroomed out, so it would more flatten and spread horizontally, probably engulfing a sizeable geography (like, a good-sized Western state) in flame and light. The total energy yield would only be about 20kT, not much bigger than the Hiroshima bomb, but the motion of the ball would spread the explosion out over a much wider area -- less devastation per location, but spread out much more dramatically.

It would be a pretty awesome game to watch.

Tremendous little Italian wine bar. The atmosphere of the place is the absolute winner here. The layout is like a set of disjoint nooks and crannies, creating a very intimate space. The music is noticeable, but not too loud, so you can actually hear your companions. A very cute, very comfortable place to spend an evening. As for the wine, the wine list is not giant, but for myself (pretty useless when it comes to wine, and very useless when it comes to Italian wine) it helps not to have a phone book sized tome to decipher. We tried three bottles last night, all reasonably priced, which varied from good to superb. The waiters were very helpful in helping us choose wines too. Highly recommended.
Quality Excellent

Quiet, relatively well appointed local gym. Nothing special but definitely sure the job.

My favorite Italian on the UWS, and heck there's a lot of Italian food around here. Great pasta and great mains. The wine list is affordable but high quality, and the service is attentive.

I highly recommend the rigatoni. Overall a friendly, cheap neighborhood place with great food.

I didn't have a great experience here. Took ages to get the attention of servers either for problems (microphones didn't work) or drinks (at bar and in the room). Prices are too high if you've got a large group in a single room, as they charge per person per hour. A little more building maintenance also wouldn't hurt.

It's freaking huge, and the stained glass windows are beautiful. Tour guide Talya was friendly and knowledgeable.
