"We can't afford to waste a brain." #period

#mustwatch   #TED   #exposedpost
Decades ago, few pediatricians had heard of autism. In 1975, 1 in 5,000 kids was estimated to have it. Today, 1 in 68 is on the autism spectrum. What caused this steep rise? Steve Silberman points to “a perfect storm of autism awareness” — a pair of psychologists with an accepting view, an unexpected pop culture moment and a new clinical test. But to really understand, we have to go back further to an Austrian doctor by the name of Hans Asperger,...

Interesting topic and nice conversation!
 
Is Math a Science/Theory vs Law

Scientists cannot deny how useful mathematics can be in proving their hypotheses and establishing credibility for their work. But is math just a means to an end, or could it be considered a form of science unto itself? On today’s program, Matt Hoffman, an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the Rochester Institute of Technology, will grapple with this question and explain how even mathematicians can disagree on the answer. In our second half, we’ll discuss the difference between a scientific theory and a law.

Host: Brian Koberlein
Guest: Matt Hoffman
Producer: Mark Gillespie
Music: Marcus Warner

Electric Cars/Rare Earth Elements

Electric cars hold the promise of helping society conserve energy and wean us away from fossil fuel. But it’s more complicated than that. On our show today is Dr. Callie Babbitt, and Assistant Professor of Sustainability at the Rochester Institute of Technology. She’s going to tell us why we need to consider the materials we use to build car batteries, and how we’ll reuse those materials when the batteries reach the end of their useful life. In our second half, we’ll talk about the rare earth elements used in batteries, where these materials come from, and where they can be found in space.

We started designing the world’s first fully self-driving vehicle to transform mobility, making it easier, safer and more enjoyable for everyone to get around. Now we're ready for the next step of our project: this summer, our prototype vehicles will leave the test track and hit the familiar roads of Mountain View, California, with our safety drivers aboard.

Teaser Trailer

In July New Horizons will finally make it’s flyby of Pluto. We have made lots of planet flybys over the years so in some ways this is nothing new. But it’s important to keep in mind that this is the latest in a long line of planetary explorations. Each mission we’ve undertaken has been an amazing feat of engineering and scientific discovery. We’ve come a long way to get to Pluto, both in real distance and in technical prowess.

And in many ways New Horizons is just a teaser for even greater missions to come.

Breaking news! #wakeupPhilae  
Tweet Rosetta's lander Philae is out of hibernation! The signals were received at ESA's European Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt at 22:28 CEST on 13 June. More than 300 data packets have been analysed by the teams at the Lander Control Center at the German Aerospace Center (DLR). "Philae is doing very well: It has an operating temperature of -35ºC and has 24 Watts available," explains DLR Philae Project Manager Dr. Stephan Ulamec. "The lande...

What about a forecast box? 😁
The tempescope is an ambient physical display that visualizes various weather conditions like rain, clouds, and lightning. By receiving weather forecasts from the internet, it can reproduce tomorrow's sky in your living room.

Sorry, with regard to beauty, you can do no better than Euler's identity...
Brain scans show a complex string of numbers and letters in mathematical formulae can evoke the same sense of beauty as artistic masterpieces and music from the greatest composers.

Story
Tagline
A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert every effort in order to give in the same measure I have received.
Introduction

Studio per diventare ingegnere civile ma i miei interessi spaziano in quasi tutti i campi della scienza e della tecnica, in particolare la fisica, la matematica, l'informatica.

Mi interesso molto di tecnologia, specialmente dell'intero mondo Google. In effetti cerchio ogni Googler che mi capita a tiro qui su G+.

Per hobby mi diletto a imparare la programmazione su Android.

Apprezzo anche la fotografia, preferibilmente urban.

Altro su di me:

  • G+ Early Adopter
  • Fiero di non avere un profilo FB
  • Cultore di The Big Bang Theory (se non lo conoscete → vergogna)
  • Nerd but not gamer
  • Fiero possessore di Nexus 5 e Nexus 7
  • Ubuntu User
  • Bitcoin Enthusiast

Possibili cerchie in cui inserirmi:
  • Geeks
  • Google Enthusiasts
  • Tech Lovers
  • Android Lovers
  • Nerds
  • Amazing photo sharers
  • Ubuntu Lovers

Eng

I study to become a civil engineer but I have interests which range in almost all fields of science and technology, especially in physics, mathematics, computer science (#STEM area).

I am very interested in technology, especially the entire Google world. I actually circle every Googler I find here on G+.

As a hobby I delight to learn programming on Android.

I also appreciate photography, preferably urban.

All'apparenza tutto bello e funzionante e poi...la doccia non funziona e lo scarico del lavandino è intasato. Mi spiace dare solo 2 stelle, ma il bagno DEVE essere funzionante in un albergo. Nota positiva: il letto era enorme e molto confortevole.
