We could just fix this mess with some basic math.

We may have destroyed the planet, but we made some pretty awesome stuff, like cars and iPads and wars. Generations from now, they'll be so jealous.
 
It's too late to stop it. We could mitigate it so that its effects will not be too severe, but we won't thanks to politics as usual.

This will not be the End of the World, or even the End of Humanity, but it will be very, very bad for both our environment and many, many people.
It's still "possible" to avoid horribly grim outcomes, but ... not likely.

Gotta learn this truth the hard way, I suppose.

More proof that fish are the freakiest things in nature.
 
The tire-size opah, which can weigh up to 200 pounds, thrives in cold ocean depths by keeping its blood warm, making it the first fish ever discovered to generate its own body heat. It does so in a bizarre way.

For a man who didn't say much on screen, he sure had a lot of profound and powerful things off screen. #Charlie Chaplin​

Socialism brings misery and despair to everyone, every time it is tried ... wait, what? Oh, sorry. Actually, it's the opposite. Sorry.

El Niño will save us all! Wait ...



#elninosaves
LOS ANGELES (KRON) — This week's wet storm isn't expected to provide much, if any, relief from California's historic drought. But there is hope for a serious drenching next year in the form of El Nino, a tropical weather pattern over the Pacific Ocean that typically brings rain to the West Coast. Climatologists say the…

There's a party in the cloud and EVERYONE's invited!
Paolo Amoroso originally shared to Chrome OS Life:
 
Einked, an Inkscape replacement for the cloud
The search is over, I finally found an Inkscape replacement I can use in the cloud with my Chromebook. It’s the Einked SVG vector graphics editor, a free Chrome app:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/einked-vector-graphics-ed/eeodiejfjedlblfjmhckiljfopoggbkg

The app, which seems clearly inspired by Inkscape, has a user interface similar to the desktop software’s and provides most of its basic features. If you are familiar with Inkscape you’ll feel at home with Einked.

It’s actually not yet cloud-ready, as it doesn’t support saving to or loading from Google Drive or other cloud storage services. And some features are still limited, such as the text tool which doesn’t let you change the text size and has very few fonts. Einked, however, is under active development and has many new features on the roadmap. The author told me cloud storage support in coming in the summer of 2015.

Einked starts fast on my Acer C720 Chromebook, almost instantaneously. It also works offline. The screenshot shows the app’s window on my Chromebook. The app loads and saves SVG files and exports PNG and BMP bitmaps.

Having a Chromebook and planning to switch to Chrome OS for all my desktop computing needs, I had been looking for an Inkscape replacement for a long time. The vector drawing apps I found in the Chrome Web Store miss some of the features I need, such as coordinates and size readouts for graphical elements and layers.

Interestingly, the Einked app listing in the Chrome Web Store does include the keywords I was searching for, but wasn’t returned, so I had missed it. The Chrome Web Store is a mess, but this is another rant:

I had lost all hope, then Christopher Baker let me know about Einked in the comments to a post of mine. Huge thanks Chris!

I remember the crazy hype! Windows 95 will REVOLUTIONIZE THE INDUSTRY! I personally think it did, as many geeks sought an alternative and found Linux.

Wow. Something good happening in the world.
 
After several years of work, now no one in the city goes more than 10 days without a permanent place to live. The mayor — who began as a skeptic — explains how they did it.

Chicken and waffles is not a thing so much in CA as it is in the South. So its great to see these kinds of dishes accessible here. Go and get the chicken and waffles. You won't regret it.
