The Little Ice Age is generally seen as a major event in European history. Analysing a variety of recent weather reconstructions, this column finds that European weather appears constant from the Middle Ages until 1900, and that events like the freezing of the Thames and the disappearance of ...

It's been great seeing cider make a comeback. Gone are the days when I'd have to hunt down an Irish bar for a cider. Now any good bar or restaurant in New England or Washington State has something in a bottle and something on tap.

Cider is the fastest-growing alcoholic beverage in the United States. Much of that growth is driven by big industrial producers, but smaller cider-makers are looking for a larger bite of the apple.

I've noticed that our locally-owned restaurants are starting to offer hard cider on tap.  I'm told that the ciders are wildly popular and sell out very quickly.

"the point was to respect the baby's life and to give Beatriz the care and the right to health that she deserved,"

Or in other words. "We risked the mother's life in order to force her to carry the brainless baby long enough that it could be born and die."

Making more people aware of this story is socially responsible so to prevent this country from repeating an ugly part of its own history.  As such articles go, it is even almost entertaining in places, although I cannot say I found it a fun read.

I know two women, who are now in their 40's or so, who were forced to carry pregnancies to term, and then were never allowed to see their babies. It was their mothers who did this to them.
Oddly enough, they have chosen never to become pregnant again. And their mothers gripe about "not being a grandmother".

Serves the old bitches right, imho.

375 million year old fish fossil found - with umbilical cord. Live birth for fishes occurred as early as 375 million years ago! Amazing!

Why yes, I am using @Fairpoint. How on earth did you guess?

And, I might add, my mother is paying nearly what I pay in Massachusetts for 60MB/6MB. I think this is supposed to be 3/1.

Protections for anonymous speech are vital to democratic discourse. Allowing dissenters to shield their identities frees them to express critical, minority views . . . Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority. . . . It thus exemplifies the purpose behind the Bill of Rights, and of the First Amendment in particular: to protect unpopular individuals from retaliation . . . at the hand of an intolerant society.
1995 Supreme Court ruling in McIntyre v. Ohio Elections Commission

There's no way on Google+ for me to create a page of my favorite posts, so FWIW:
————————
Who is hurt by the "real names" policy? A summary.

I'm a middle aged, American, white guy; why is name privacy so important to me?

On Pseudonymity, Privacy and Responsibility on Google+. This covers every argument against pseudonyms that I have heard, and gives lots of examples of real people whom Google doesn't believe are worth allowing here.

Read two bloggers talking about what it's like to get a dozen or so threats of physical violence every week…from people who have found out where you live.
and what it's like when your business gets destroyed by someone spreading lies and creating fake web sites.

On privilege, a word I always used to hate.

How Google needs to fix "common name" enforcement.

It's Google's service, why do I feel I have a right to ask them to change?

How has the internet changed what it means to be "public"? (At the end of an example of the importance of anonymity in influencing scientific change.)

Why is Google hiding their "real name" requirement from new users?

For more good information on the debate about controlling who knows your wallet name, see the web page "Who is Harmed by a Real Name's Policy" http://j.mp/pojGSo and the site http://my.nameis.me/. For more on the ethical issues surrounding requiring legal names, the Oxford University blog, "Practical Ethics", expands on the idea here: http://j.mp/pUMa0j

I founded or cofounded seven of the ten startups I’ve been involved in. I have dealt with everything from financing (VC pitches, finding private investors, cutting deals with corporate investors, and by-the-bootstraps) to marketing and sales, public presentations, tutorials, panels and standards committees. On the technical side I have ranged from pure development, to managing development and IT groups, to providing architecture and technology solutions for developers. I believe in flat hierarchies, well-defined processes, and building fun corporate cultures.
