Oh NPR... et tu?

The header article to this video makes an observation about Linde's wife grasping the import of the discovery before he does. Shocking, the little woman got it before the famous physicist. Yes, Linde's wife, theoretical physicist Renata Kallosh who is according to Wikipedia "well known for her contributions to string theory, in particular finding the first models of accelerated expansion of the universe in low energy supersymmetric string" got it before he did.

At least NPR caught themselves afterwards. And to be fair to Linde, it looks like he's not a morning person. Three cups of coffee for me and I'm still not capable of grasping elementary stuff like how to operate a door.
Andrei Linde, one of the founding fathers of cosmological inflation, answers the door to the news that his theory appears to have been confirmed.

Girls & Science

This is relevant to my interests as a dad.

This past Saturday, I took my daughter to a science expo at a local high school Super Science Saturday and do you know what I noticed? At every single hands-on exhibit it was the boys who pushed their way to the front demanding attention. And they got it. It really does start early.

Without exception, the boys would push their way to the front of the line; grabbing, pushing, shoving, shouting while their parents stood back and let it happen. Were they being incredibly rude? Well, yeah. But I think the attitude was that they were just being boys. Which is the problem in a nutshell. As if there is some sliding scale of acceptable behavior based on gender. Horse crap.

All in all we had a great time. At the last exhibit - she took a look at the sun through a large telescope. Sure enough, a boy practically knocked her down to take a peak telling his mom that he knew all about the sun's corona. My daughter turned to him and told him that what he was looking at was not the sun's corona but solar prominences.

Score one for actually paying attention.         #stemwomen

12 Years a Slave propaganda because it did not portray happy slaves

James Bowman,  movie and culture critic for The American Spectator brings into question the political agenda of the makers of 12 Years a Slave for not showing the kinder gentler side of slavery.

Yes, and I suppose Schindler's List should have been a musical comedy.

I know, I know. You don't have to work that hard on the internet to uncover incredible stupidity like this. Especially on right-wing sites like The American Spectator  (worst spectator sport ever, BTW. Get off the bench and play FFS) But this level of stupidity has to be well over 9000.

I don't know whether you read the article or not +BrendaD Brown -- I wouldn't recommend it anyway. But the thing I found offensive was the scholarly language making it sound oh so reasonable. I just don't know -- there are just some thing you would expect that normal decent people can agree upon no matter what their political position is; like rape, murder, violence, child molestation or slavery which happened to be all of the above and more. It's cowardly not to look it square in the eye for what it was. Evil.

The answer is obvious. Stop funding studies and everything will be OK. Seriously, every time some scientist gives us more bad news it's because of some study they've done. Stahp.

And what the hell is NASA doing spending money on studies anyway? When are they going to get back to the important stuff like giving us videos of astronauts playing golf on the moon?

Tomorrow is International Day of Happiness and not a moment too soon if you ask me. And for your daily dose of gratitude, here's a video made by the +United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) of people in the the city of Tacloban  - devastated by Typhoon Haiyan - dancing to the +Pharrell Williams song "Happy."

Over simplification time: does it mean that they're happy with their condition? No. But maybe it means that there are people out there in the world trying to make a difference and you can be one too.

The people of the Philippines still need our help.  A lot of it. Not gonna shine you on. Spreading the word on social media is just step 1/1,000,000th -- money can't buy you love. Just the Who's in Whoville letting you know they're still here. Donations, volunteering, whatever. My daughter's grade school has been raising money through various activities. If there's something you can do where you are there's no time like today to do it. That's all.
 
Tomorrow is the International Day of Happiness! 

"Happiness may have different meanings for different people. But we can all agree that it means working to end conflict, poverty and other unfortunate conditions in which so many of our fellow human beings live," said +United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

A message from one of the million job boards I've been sucked into

"Joseph, there's no better feeling than a machine doing work for you. Set up a Job Alert on xyz.com to have positions matching your exact job search criteria delivered to you daily or weekly."

Really? No better feeling than a machine doing work for me??? 

Only if the machine is a blender and I'm stuck in margarita-ville.

That's sort of where I'm coming from. My daily dose of irony is getting dangerously high.

Just lost some respect for the man. I guess he also believes all the people hurt by the act are liars.
