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.

When I was in school, we weren't even allowed to use a ballpoint pen until after the 10th standard. It was pencils only until the 4th or 5th, and then fountain pens. I remember we used to carry pieces of blotting paper or chalk.

I am sad to say that my handwriting has been ruined in the last decade or so. Even when I take notes for myself or discuss something with colleagues over a piece of rough paper, whatever I write ends up being an illegible scrawl.
Thicker ink, fewer smudges, and more strained hands: an Object Lesson

I did own a hero pen. I used to smash the tip lightly to flatten it a little. I didn't know what i was doing then, but I now realize that is how calligraphic pens are. I just thought at the time, my writings looked good.

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

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.
