Julia Farley, the London curator, said the museums hoped to explode the view that the Celts were a distinct race who kept moving west from eastern Europe until they ended up stranded to this day in Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

the flyby is flying by! 
 
Pluto’s bright, mysterious “heart” is rotating into view, ready for its close-up on close approach, in this image taken by our New Horizons spacecraft on July 12 from a distance of 1.6 million miles (2.5 million kilometers). It is the target of the highest-resolution images that will be taken during the spacecraft’s closest approach to Pluto on Tuesday. More: http://go.nasa.gov/1Rvnom9

British Columbiana. Very odd map. 
The population of western Canada in 1883 was about 125,000. But where most would have seen a vast, empty wilderness, the Canadian Pacific Railway saw “The Golden Northwest, a home for all people.” It promoted its vision with a colourful poster declaring the C.P.R. was “The Grand Transcontinental Highway from the Cities of the East to Winnipeg and Manitoba’s Boundless Wheatfields.”

CBC > "The new death toll comes in the wake of comments made by Beverly McLachlin, the chief justice of the Supreme Court. At an event on Thursday, McLachlin said that Canada attempted to commit "cultural genocide" against aboriginal peoples."

http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/6-000-aboriginal-children-died-in-residential-school-system-report-finds-1.3093580?cmp=abfb
Justice Murray Sinclair, the chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, says at least 6,000 aboriginal children died in Canada's residential schools. The exact number could be much higher because documentation is scant.

"AI is already here, and it’s only going to get smarter. But the biggest myth about AI is that it’ll be like our own intelligence, with the same desires; greed, jealousy, hunger for power. In fact, it’s something alien and new. The ‘machine learning’ algorithms that fuel so much of modern life already are often inscrutable; even their designers don’t really know how they form decisions."

"Once we accept a machine is alive, any relationship we form with it will be on the same level as any other living thing. Thus, robots are truly alive in our minds; which is perhaps more significant to the future of human-machine relationships than any Turing test. A robot doesn’t need to convince us it is human – we’re ready to believe it already."

Useful list of cognitive biases > 

http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/List_of_cognitive_biases

Cognitive bias describes the inherent thinking errors that humans make in processing information. Some of these have been verified empirically in the field of psychology, while others are considered general categories of bias.

Excellent venue for our Coin, Stamp and Collectables Fair. The staff there are very helpful and organized. There's plenty of space and easy access. Thank you from the North Shore Numismatic Society.

Delighted to report that customer service was excellent today - really helpful and prompt. This makes the third time in as many months that customer service has been good so I'm changing my rating. Huge change from previous years - well done J&M.

I do love my new Toyota Tacoma truck ♥ and buying it was a happy experience (altho' paperwork takes ages as it always does everywhere). Pablo Santos was just so straightforward and helpful. He had clear answers to all our questions and let us really get the feel of the drive ourselves. I like it that there was no 'selling' and no 'pressures' - it was all very relaxed, informative and easy. Top marks. Pablo's manager and colleagues were all equally friendly and helpful. Thank you all ! Recommended! p.s. Pablo's follow-through for the accessories etc was excellent too. And installation faultless. I get the impression the service is also good but will let you know

Good menu with unusual dishes. Food for our partyvaried from excellent (chingri malai) to unsatisfactory (lamb overcooked in the malvani lamb). Pleasant setting with a cafe feel. However appalling service - surly and rude.

UPDATE - I've been back to this great shop a half-dozen times now. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- >My appreciation of their expertise has gone up even more! They really do know their stuff.This shop does indeed suit collectors but also casual browsers. I've personally witnessed many people coming in to see how much this stamp or that coin might be worth. Adults of all ages and occupations, Children with history projects. The chaps in the shop invest a lot of time in being courteous and welcoming. A few people do get a bit upset to find inheritance coins are not actually valuable but the Shop staff are very warm and understanding. Just lettin' ya know. Cheers Julian Original Review --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- >WONDERFUL SHOP!! So glad I found this Vancouver Coin and Stamp dealer shop. The chaps in here answered all my questions with expertise and deep courtesy. The first time I went in I expressed an interest in certain Coin Types and they've guided my collecting and laid coins aside for me to see next time. I am so impressed with this service. They communicate by email too. Perfect. The shop itself is just as you would want the real expert stamp/coin shop to be like: books, boxes, albums, catalogues, envelopes of treasure piled higgledy-piggledy everywhere. It's a fascinating Alladin's Cave. Displays glimpsed. Interesting pieces abound. But walking in fresh? Immediate help, even in busy times. And friendly people! taking time to chat and enquire and answer. I love this place and will be back and back again. They even offered me a great arrangement with a few 'stamps' I thought worthless. Recommended. For the curious browser and the passionate both. There's no pressure here. Fair value. Expertise. Coins and Stamps. Heaven.
