Earth has a gas problem. But seriously: The latest CO2 concentration measurement is at 398.17 ppm: http://1.usa.gov/ZyizbZ

Not Enigma

Capt. Jerry Roberts, the last member of the WWII codebreaking team at Bletchley Park responsible for reading the highest level strategic commands, coded by the Lorenz cipher machine, has died at the age of 93.

Largely thanks to one mistake made by a peeved German telegraphist who was forced to retransmit a long text and broke the rules, and to the brilliance of mathematician Bill Tutte along with the more well known mathematicians Alan Turing and Max Newman and the brilliant electronics engineer Tommy Flowers, Jerry was sometimes able to read Hitler's messages before the generals for whom they were intended.

"We were breaking 90% of the German traffic through '41 to '45", Capt Roberts recalled in one interview.

"We worked for three years on Tunny material and were breaking - at a conservative estimate - just under 64,000 top-line messages."

Now we can finally upload and download music through the Web browser, well, through Chrome browser anyway.
 
Music was made to be loved. We just made loving it easier. With Google Play Music for Chrome, you can now keep all the music you love in the cloud so that you always have it. To add new music, enable the “Google Play Music for Chrome” lab at play.google.com/music/listen#/labs. Then simply drag and drop songs into your Google Play Music library. If you have a lot of music in iTunes or if you want new music to be added automatically, you can configure this by clicking “Add Music” at the top right of play.google.com/music

But, wait, there’s more! This new lab has extra goodies. You can now open a handy mini-player by clicking the arrow in the bottom right corner of our web app so you can see what’s playing or skip songs from any tab. Plus, download songs, albums and playlists directly from the web. Let us know what you think! 

We built this lab using Chrome Apps and Native Client technology, developers can learn more at developer.chrome.com/apps/about_apps and developer.chrome.com/native-client. Uploads, downloads and the mini player are just the start, and we are excited to push the boundaries of what’s possible on the web.

Very interesting article. When I was a kid, I lived all kinds of places - urban, suburban and country. My dad always let us roam where ever we wanted as kids. I don't remember there being any rule beyond "be back when the street light comes on." Maybe this is because he grew up on a large farm where he and his brothers ran around in the woods freely as kids.

WE DID IT! +ProcterGamble  have committed to stop trashing the rainforest! 

>>>http://act.gp/1g6qk4u<<<

400,000 of us emailed P&G's boss and thousands more campaigned on the streets and in supermarkets. Today P&G finally listened and committed to a zero deforestation policy in all their product supply chains. This is people power in action!

Can you spot the snake? Black rat snakes and garter snakes are commonly seen on the #AppalachianTrail, but don’t forget that extremely venomous snakes like rattlesnakes and copperheads are also out there. Need help identifying those limbless reptiles? www.whatsnakeisthat.com tells you what snake species are found in each state.
