“And I reply, ‘you know what I’m going to tell my grandkids? I’m going to tell them that we paired service dogs with children in need, off the back of a f***ing joke.’

Now here's a cryptocurrency philosophy that I could support.
 
Dogecoin and Social Good
The founder of dogecoin is everything bitcoin is not. He is inviting government regulation, is more concerned with charitable efforts than being rich, and firmly believes in the importance of an inclusive community. Essentially he comes off as a liberal who sees the potential use of cryptocurrency as a force in social good. It may be something that started as a joke coin, but there is something underneath the creators of dogecoin which is purely idealistic, and kind of punk rock.

Speaking of idealism, if you list your wallets in the comments, I will tip you. If you don't have a wallet, get one at dogecoin.com or dogevault.com for an online wallet. 
Dogecoin founder Jackson Palmer has thrown down the gauntlet to the cryptocurrency community declaring that neither he nor his digital currency are for sal

DÍA LITÚRGICO: 
MARTES XI DEL TIEMPO ORDINARIO

Texto del Evangelio (Mt 5,43-48): En aquel tiempo, Jesús dijo a sus discípulos: «Habéis oído que se dijo: ‘Amarás a tu prójimo y odiarás a tu enemigo’. Pues yo os digo: Amad a vuestros enemigos y rogad por los que os persigan, para que seáis hijos de vuestro Padre celestial, que hace salir su sol sobre malos y buenos, y llover sobre justos e injustos. Porque si amáis a los que os aman, ¿qué recompensa vais a tener? ¿No hacen eso mismo también los publicanos? Y si no saludáis más que a vuestros hermanos, ¿qué hacéis de particular? ¿No hacen eso mismo también los gentiles? Vosotros, pues, sed perfectos como es perfecto vuestro Padre celestial».

SED PERFECTOS COMO ES PERFECTO VUESTRO PADRE CELESTIAL

Hoy, Cristo nos invita a amar. Amar sin medida, que es la medida del Amor verdadero. Dios es Amor, «que hace salir su sol sobre malos y buenos, y llover sobre justos e injustos» (Mt 5,45). Y el hombre, chispa de Dios, ha de luchar para asemejarse a Él cada día, «para que seáis hijos de vuestro Padre celestial» (Mt 5,45). ¿Dónde encontramos el rostro de Cristo? En los otros, en el prójimo más cercano. Es muy fácil compadecerse de los niños hambrientos de Etiopía cuando los vemos por la TV, o de los inmigrantes que llegan cada día a nuestras playas. Pero, ¿y los de casa? ¿Y nuestros compañeros de trabajo? ¿Y aquella parienta lejana que está sola y que podríamos ir a hacerle un rato de compañía? Los otros, ¿cómo los tratamos? ¿Cómo los amamos? ¿Qué actos de servicio concretos tenemos con ellos cada día?

Es muy fácil amar a quien nos ama. Pero el Señor nos invita a ir más allá, porque «si amáis a los que os aman, ¿qué recompensa vais a tener?» (Mt 5,46). ¡Amar a nuestros enemigos! Amar aquellas personas que sabemos —con certeza— que nunca nos devolverán ni el afecto, ni la sonrisa, ni aquel favor. Sencillamente porque nos ignoran. El cristiano, todo cristiano, no puede amar de manera “interesada”; no ha de dar un trozo de pan, una limosna al del semáforo. Se ha de dar él mismo. El Señor, muriéndose en la Cruz, perdona a quienes les crucifican. Ni un reproche, ni una queja, ni un mal gesto...

Amar sin esperar nada a cambio. A la hora de amar tenemos que enterrar las calculadoras. La perfección es amar sin medida. La perfección la tenemos en nuestras manos en medio del mundo, en medio de nuestras ocupaciones diarias. Haciendo lo que toca en cada momento, no lo que nos viene de gusto. La Madre de Dios, en las bodas de Caná de Galilea, se da cuenta de que los invitados no tienen vino. Y se avanza. Y le pide al Señor que haga el milagro. Pidámosle hoy el milagro de saberlo descubrir en las necesidades de los otros.

"I take issue with how he reduced my daughter to a “distressed baby” who cost the company too much money. How he blamed the saving of her life for his decision to scale back employee benefits. How he exposed the most searing experience of our lives, one that my husband and I still struggle to discuss with anyone but each other, for no other purpose than an absurd justification for corporate cost-cutting." 
Late last week, Tim Armstrong, the chief executive officer of AOL, landed himself in a media firestorm when he held a town hall with employees to explain why he was paring their retirement benefits. After initially blaming Obamacare for driving up the company’s health care costs, he pointed the finger...

"If ever there was a testimony to the importance big data has achieved in business it’s this: We will now shape our physical world to create better streams of digital information."

And suddenly, I'm even more interested in Disney infrastructure.
Summary: MailChimp Chief Data Scientist is at Disney World this weekend wearing his RFID-equipped MagicBand. Here’s how he thinks the practice of digitally tracking consumers in the physical world will reach everywhere from theme parks to our homes.

It seems you cannot stop progress, including digital technology and Disney's beloved attractions and characters.

" They say that when the costs–the time and effort–associated with being a member of a social network outweigh the benefits, then the conditions are ripe for a general exodus. The thinking is that if one person leaves, then his or her friends become more likely to leave as well and this can cascade through the network causing a collapse in membership."

Wonder how much it matters whether the key friends move to another platform or retire generally.

A Tumblr of things that cost more than space exploration (more than the total US budget for space exploration, or more than specific well-known missions, and so on). Lovely to have at your fingertips when arguing with someone who thinks we spend too much on space.

Things that cost more than space!..this big assed useless as government-one, & two the misappropriated, misplaced, mismanaged $'s these fuck boys enjoy, tho never even achieve satisfaction. Yet & still they help themselves to a literally, unlimited petty cash flow-via the embezzlement enterprise, that is... this big assed, useless assed government. The war against drugs cost more than space-however tho...which is actually it's war against it's very own poor people. Where as the drugs are really a silent partner in the business of killing poor people, & stealing even more resource from out each&every last "the hood". Excuse me for going off on a tangent pls... I seriously don't mean to trivialize OUR issues. But lastly, our FREEDOM ain't free. & so yeah, freedom costs more than space does...

How can you help do science? It's easy! If you see a bumblebee, take a picture.
 
Bee a citizen scientist! Take a photo of a bumblebee and help collect data to protect this important part of the ecosystem.
Bumblebee populations in North America are in decline. A new website allows citizen scientists to upload photos of the bees they see in the wild, to help track and conserve the rare species of this important pollinator.

"Ken Jennings—yes, that Ken Jennings—put it best. "Terrified I might get cancer," he tweeted this morning, "because what if Bill and Emma Keller yell at me.""
Journalists question the ethics of cancer—of fighting it, and of blogging about it.

"If a little girl is running around on the baseball team with her mitt, people think, 'That's a strong girl,'" said her husband, Matt Duron, who, like his wife, uses a pen name to shield the boy's identity. "When my 6-year-old is running around in a dress, people think there's something wrong with him." [...] 

"Why? "Masculinity is valued more than femininity," University of Utah law professor Clifford Rosky said. "So there's less worry about girls than about boys."

I hate this attitude so much. Our society is so afraid of femininity and feminine activities that it makes life hell for little boys (and grown up boys!) who are interested in activities that are deemed too "girly". 

This is why I'm a feminist. Not just to improve the lives of women, but to improve the lives of everyone. A world where women are equal to men in every way is a world in which a man doesn't have to fear looking like "less of a man".
As women are encouraged into typically masculine roles, research shows men are continuing to be held to rigid gender stereotypes.

Men are stuck in gender roles, and it's absurd. I can't help but giggle when I look at all the guys spending huge amounts of time and energy to get "buff" - before or after they go to their desk job, in their luxury SUV with power everything.

I'm a museum girl, educator, science geek and costumer. Sometimes all at once.
Introduction
I specialize in Informal Science and Environmental Education, focusing on finding ways to teach big concepts in little ways. I'm never happier than when I'm in a creek lecturing someone about fossils or catching crayfish.

I also suffer from a tendency to dabble in the humanities, but never in public, and I always wash my hands afterwards.
