Cool video. Scale model of solar system built in the desert.


A new video called "To Scale: The Solar System" does its best to teach viewers just how vast our cosmic backyard really is, by creating a scale model of Earth's neighborhood in Nevada's Black Rock Desert.

Google is offering 2 free GB's of storage for running a security checkup. If you're already using the Goog's services (um...you're reading this :) ) then this is not too shabby. I haven't run it yet but plan to. The article notes that you can locate the security checkup in your settings.

Google is doling out an extra 2 GB of Drive storage in exchange for customers performing a security checkup on their accounts.

Great interaction and format here. Engrossing and brings back memories of growing up in Chicago-land south burbs, seeing the projects as a young boy (in passing on the interstate or visiting such places as The Museum of Science and Industry) and driving into them for deliveries as young man working for HPA Monon.


In 1993, photographer Patricia Evans took this photo of 10-year-old Tiffany Sanders. Almost 20 years later, Tiffany saw her photo on a book cover and got in touch with Evans. This is the story of what happened in those intervening years — to them, and to public housing in Chicago.

Spying on Congress and Israel: NSA Cheerleaders Discover Value of Privacy Only When Their Own Is Violated

"... we witness the tawdry spectacle of large numbers of people who for years were fine with, responsible for, and even giddy about NSA mass surveillance suddenly objecting. Now they’ve learned that they themselves, or the officials of the foreign country they most love, have been caught up in this surveillance dragnet, and they can hardly contain their indignation. Overnight, privacy is of the highest value because now it’s their privacy, rather than just yours, that is invaded."
Mass, warrantless surveillance is inherently abusive and unjustified, and one shouldn't need a report that this was done to the Benjamin Netanyahus and Pete Hoekstras of the world to realize that.

Fascinating excerpt. Never heard of this before. Seems silly to say but reading this made me itch all over. You?
A new disease is plaguing thousands, but experts are in conflict over its origins—and whether it exists at all.

Story
Introduction
Hello, and welcome! My name is Jason Jacobs and I am a web designer and illustrator.

I am skilled both in traditional and digital media and draw upon a variety of life experiences and creative vision when bringing about positive solutions to life's design dilemmas.

I am an obsessive reader whom also likes to write, I enjoy listening to a wide spectrum of music, and love applying my creative chops in the kitchen. One of my latest kitchen endeavors: exploring the art of artisan bread-making. I'm also a fan of Creole cooking and can whip up a pretty mean Gumbo.

New to Boise and the first time here (previously ate Thai at a place near the mall/theater that was excellent but cannot recall the name right now) with girlfriend and visiting friends. The decor was nice and the place seemed clean. We didn't have to wait more than five minutes to be seated. Food: The appetizers we ordered were great to be sure. The main dishes were not: drowning in sauce and the duck with my dish was nothing but gristle and fat. Service: Terrible. Our waiter was obviously having a bad night and was sarcastic (beyond playful chiding) and condescending to us. Price: too expensive for the service and quality of the main dishes. Will never go back.
