Nasa Announcement Today

Just a gentle reminder to tune in for NASA's big press conference today at 1pm EST. They'll be announcing findings beyond our solar system. Perhaps a new world we can all migrate to before this one burns down in the coming years? Just kidding...juuust kidding! Seriously though, not something you want to miss.

The Next Big Blue-Collar Job Is Coding

It still makes me laugh when people picture coders as basement dwellers, bay-area tech hipsters, or government-hired internet ninjas. I mean, some coders do have exciting, film-worthy jobs, I'm sure. But then, so do some lawyers.

It's been a pleasure attending some programming workshops at General Assembly and seeing what diverse backgrounds everyone comes from. I really see coding to become as standard as good grammar when it comes to the job market.

Check out what Wired had to say about it this past week.

Absolutely beautiful read on how to love.

I wholeheartedly agree that understanding is the key component to real love. Often times, I find the word "understand" to be watered down. I believe you can care for someone you don't understand very deeply, but if you feel something's missing it's probably true understanding of and/or from the other person.

The legendary author of Peace is Every Step, says here: "Understanding someone’s suffering is the best gift you can give another person. Understanding is love’s other name. If you don’t understand, you can’t love... In a deep relationship, there’s no longer a boundary between you and the other person. You are her and she is you. Your suffering is her suffering. Your understanding of your own suffering helps your loved one to suffer less... "

Happy Valentine's Day. <3

Happy 2017!!!

Every year, we start the new year with a sense that somehow, this arbitrary marker of time... this complete revolution around the sun... this new man-counted digit at the stroke of midnight... will renew our times. It's as if, for this first week of the new year, hope exists that entropy will cease and order will be restored. I propose treating our time differently. May we learn to thrive in the chaos. As one friend wrote last year, "Be the microorganisms that thrive in shit.". We give so much importance to changing external circumstances that we don't give enough attention to the key of evolution: Adaptation.

There is so much about ourselves we can control. Loss doesn't rob you of control. Failure doesn't rob you of control. Remember this when you undoubtedly slip this year. You don't have to be a complete stoic. You are still free to feel emotion; to bask in the woes of the infinitely large and infinitely small. Just don't stunt your own evolution in the process.

May we all grow our own iron lungs.
Happy rest of your life. <3

Demonstration of the Achievements
- Aleksey Litvishkov

It'd be pretty neat to be able to look into a large glass and be reminded of what makes us all great.

RIP John Glenn, former U.S. Astronaut

After the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, young John Glenn signed up to be a military aviator. Little did he know he'd soon be soaring out of the globe. As the first American to orbit the Earth in 1962, he circled our planet three times in a Mercury capsule named, Friendship 7. And once was not enough!! In 1998, he flew out into orbit again on the Space Shuttle Discovery. At 77 years old, this made him the oldest human to fly. In 2012, President Obama awarded him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Thank you, John Glenn, for your incredible life story. May what you started never end. <3

No Clear Mind

Seriously blown away with this track. I've been a fan of No Clear Mind since their first album ("Dream is Destiny"), but what really marks them as true artists is how they've evolved from those quiet, soft , dreamy sounds. This song is pounding and still manages to keep that spellbinding sound that made me fall in love with them in the first place.

Really, REALLY worth the listen.

Be sure to check out their new album, Makena, on Spotify!

Can humans influence Quantum Mechanics?

Today's the big day! The Big Bell Test is a worldwide quantum experiment powered by human randomness. That means, you can be a volunteer in a huge quantum physics experiment from the comfort of your chair. To keep things fun for everyone, the Institute of Photonic Sciences have created a game where players use sequences of 1s and 0s as randomly as possible. The project will use the contribution of over 30,000 people who will generate sequences of random bits and test the properties of entangled particles and more!

Give it a spin! It's for SCIENCE!!

Don't let the U.S. pull out of the COP21 Paris Agreement.

If you're a U.S. citizen and you care about our climate, please consider signing this petition and sharing it with your friends. We can't afford to backtrack on basic high school level science.
