Almost every single big capital in Spain has kicked out from power the right-wing PP , replacing it in most cases by citizen (e.g., often non-professional politicians) mayors.

My hometown, Zaragoza, is going to have as mayor a non-politician lawyer who has defended the rights of jail prisoners for the last decades.

Machines and automation have long been harbingers of job destruction. The rise of farming technology during the early 20th century shifted workers from the field to the factory and eventually a boom in white-collar jobs. This NPR piece examines how machines have changed industries over time and led to the current service sector growth.

For hundreds of years, people have been talking about machines taking jobs. Less often discussed: machines creating new jobs.

It's a great idea, but I think there is a problem with this device, think about each snowboarders (or skiers) in a sky track with one of this cameras, it could be fun, isn't it.

Sounds fair in this case
Some companies are refusing to pay employee hospital bills that they think are out of line. Instead, they pay what they think is reasonable. So far the gambit appears to be working.

A few weeks ago, this image showed up on a notorious hyper-granola website called "The Naked Label," along with the reminder that "we cannot make better food than nature." I want you to look at it for a moment, and tell me if you spot anything wrong with this image.

Next, I want to get this on a t-shirt, with the back of the shirt printed with detailed biological and medical information about the fungus depicted here -- the 100% all-natural amanita muscaria, which is both poisonous and psychoactive. In fact, I want a whole series of shirts with this same logo, and all sorts of other natural things depicted -- say, a plague bacillus, a golden dart frog, and maybe someone getting eaten by a bear.


But surely we all know what the website meant, and I'm just needlessly nitpicking on their rather dubious art direction? No: I'm criticizing them for the "naturalistic fallacy:" the belief that "natural" things are good, and "artificial" things are bad, even without any real understanding of what one and the other really are. It's a way to perform one's social class ["I only eat natural foods, of course; I would never let my children encounter anything packaged."] while drawing political and financial ire at technologies which are out there saving human lives every day. We get to worry about obesity epidemics because until a few years ago, we were worried about famines. I know: several of my family members nearly died from them.

There was recently an excellent article about real food concerns and how to separate them from populist nonsense; if you're at all interested, I recommend it. It's called "The biggest concerns about GMO food aren't really about GMO's," and it's by +Beth Skwarecki​: http://vitals.lifehacker.com/the-biggest-concerns-about-gmo-food-arent-really-about-1702906290

For the lovely image below and more about it, and the nonsense which sites like that purvey, a h/t to Yvette d'Entremont (@thescibabe on Twitter) and a recommendation for her article: http://gawker.com/the-bullshit-hypocrisy-of-all-natural-foods-1702686054

I'd definitely buy one of those t-shirts.

Yonatan Zunger originally shared to Brief Dispatches:
 
A group of researchers has built a way to mine the giant corpora of pictures people have posted publicly (on sites like Picasa and Flickr) and build time-lapse images of landmarks. This involves huge technical challenges of identifying landmarks, building 3D models of them, stabilizing the images, and normalizing the motion and lighting -- and so far, they've managed to find over 20,000 such images, showing everything from changing seasons, to building construction, to moving glaciers.

They've made a video showing off their favorites: https://youtu.be/wptzVm0tngc. You can read the paper at http://grail.cs.washington.edu/projects/timelapse/ , and hopefully they'll soon have a way to see all their results.

+Google Self-Driving Car Project is now ready for the public road!

Google is announcing the next phase in their self driving car project. This summer, a few of the prototype vehicles they’ve created will leave the test track and hit the familiar roads of Mountain View, Calif., with safety drivers aboard.

+Colin McMillen: They'll probably claim a religious exemption.  It's just the kind of church where monks have to perform the sacrament of paying rent every now and then, lest their souls' credit rating suffer.

Went here for dinner on our first night in Asheville. Great atmosphere, food (great risotto, tasty salad and very well prepared steak), and service (thanks Colleen!)

Maybe we were just unlucky with the food, but it was terrible. Really uncooked (no, not al dente, we didn't have any problem with pasta anywhere else in Italy) and too salty. When we asked to return it there were condescending stares, and when it came back it was still in a terrible state. Mediocre food and terrible service. Worst experience in our whole trip in Italy.

Came here for our first meal in Asheville and the food was delicious. Great salad, delicious pork loin, good tacos, ... and they had gluten-free beer (I am celiac)!
