An earthquake will destroy a sizable portion of the coastal Northwest. The question is when.

He was dismissed by the art world and venerated by mathematicians … he rejected both Mick Jagger’s and Stanley Kubrick’s attempts to schmooze him. So who was the mysterious MC Escher, master of illusion?

Here's a disturbing mystery. The saiga is an Asian species of antelope with a face drawn by Dr. Seuss. In the past two weeks, over a third of the entire species has dropped dead of an unknown disease--possibly opportunistic infections taking advantage of weakened animals. I talked to saiga experts about this distressing outbreak for a story in The New York Times​

In the past two weeks, more than third of all saigas have been killed, conservationists have found, and the cause of the outbreak is unknown.

If you're saying that we should tread carefully and consider unintended consequences, then of course I agree. There are many examples of entire species being wiped out because of some other species being introduced by humans for a different purpose.

I have dipped into that Bill Bryson book but haven't read it in its entirety. I didn't know about the koalas, but I have read about kangaroos and even elephants being culled even in recent times.

Nice talk by Prof N. Mukunda, expanding on Eugene Wigner's "Unreasonable Effectiveness" paper from 1960.
 
An extremely enlightening Lecture on "Mathematics as Language of Nature: A Historical View" by Eminent Theoretical Physicist Prof. N. Mukunda. A must watch for practicing scientists.

Nice talk on doing research by Erik Demaine. You may know of him from his work on computational origami.

Erik Demaine’s nice Presburger Award presentation about how to do research, which I mentioned the other day, is now on YouTube. I like his emphasis on fun and creativity.
