Sadly politics has always been upside-down in this way.  I salute Margot Wallström.
 
"Finally, and most revealingly in my opinion, the non-affair shows us that the rights of women always come last." Yep.
If the cries of ‘Je suis Charlie’ were sincere, the western world would be convulsed with worry and anger about the Wallström affair. It has all the ingredients for a… Read more

One of the many reasons I don't want to have anything to do with counties from that part of the world. :-( any way, go Scandinavia! Give em hell!

The Capuccino in the United Club lounge (near B6) at Chicago O'Hare is the worst coffee I've ever tasted in any airport.   Why, United?   Perhaps the problem is the comma.   Why United? could be a better question.

I just read (via +Julian Feurich) of +Williamson Greenhouses Inc's CropBox system  (see http://www.cropbox.co/index.php/cropbox/vertical).   They claim it provides "exponentially higher" yields of x150 if you stack 5 high.

I'd love to know +Williamson Greenhouses Inc what yield you get if you only stack only 4 high, and if you stack only 3 high.   Do you understand what "exponentially" means?   
CropBox is a shipping container farm system featuring the latest technology in precision farming.

It's interesting that the 'sprouted barley horse feed' is so much more productive.  I'd bet you could automate a lot of the harvesting out of such a regular system.
It's the highest 'Only $' price I've seen.

This paper contains a surprising result.

Freeman Dyson's name will be familiar to many of you as the inventor of the Dyson Sphere (though his work in quantum electrodynamics and also in understanding why everyday objects don't just coalesce into each other is more important).    I suspect the name of his collaborator, William H. Press is less familiar.   Press is one of the authors of Numerical Recipes (see http://www.nr.com/).

I haven't seen this film in years.   It's a good idea done well.   I think I would have preferred it had there been ambiguity in the end about what was really happening, though.

That is an odd little film. Can't say I haven't had that "mental race" wending my way out of Union Station in the morning though. :)

This is the most wonderful thing I have read all week.
 
“How anyone could do medicine in those days and not become a socialist I find hard to understand,” Vaughan wrote. “What I hated most was people’s acceptance: ‘Yes, I have had seven children and buried six, it was God’s will.’ I hated God’s will with a burning hatred.”
The extraordinary life of Janet Vaughan, who changed our relationship with blood.

Completely agreed. A well written and interesting piece.

I was driving my daughter into pre-school this morning.   She asked me, "Daddy, when you were a little boy, were there dinosaurs?"

I had no idea that in some places, you can't get CPR in a moving ambulance. Hence this is a really important invention.
Tim Franko received CPR for two hours and 45 minutes after a recent heart attack. Doctors believe it's the longest CPR in a case where a patient who had no heartbeat was successfully revived. But it's not the only recent case in Minnesota of a really long resuscitation.

Hmm yes;  the thing where the medics can't work on a patient while the ambulance is moving because of a lack of a seatbelt needs fixing as well though; I'd have thought something like a simple body harness hooked to somewhere might have given them more movement than a traditional seatbelt.

the olympia is one of dublin's premier music venues, but clearly it looks very worn.

a world-class theatre in the midst of the dublin docklands, but with bar/refreshments facilities that seem to owe more to a cinema than a theatre. the seating and acoustics in the auditorium are excellent.

one upon a time this was home to dublin's only regular goth night, but hasn't been an interesting place to drink since then. too many televisions.

you'd never casually pass it by; it's a great spot to hide away from the roar of temple bar.

very popular. it's a great place to drink if you like standing on the pavement.
