Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses. Ann Landers

End of Moore’s Law will shift battle plan in cloud price wars

Fifty years after Intel Corp. co-founder Gordon Moore famously predicted that the density of transistors will double every two years, chip designers are finding themselves pressed against the physical boundaries of the media they work within. A former chief architect of the chip giant believes that the limit could be reached as early as 2020, while theoretical physicist Michio Kaku pins the end of the trail at around 2022.

"We’ve fundamentally misunderstood what addiction is. It isn’t a moral failing. It isn’t a disease. Addiction is an adaptation to your environment. It’s not you; it’s the cage you live in.”

"These manuscripts were originally written in Koiné, or “common” Greek, and not all of the amateur copyists spoke the language or were even fully literate. Some copied the script without understanding the words. And Koiné was written in what is known as scriptio continua—meaning no spaces between words and no punctuation. So, a sentence like weshouldgoeatmom could be interpreted as “We should go eat, Mom,” or “We should go eat Mom.” Sentences can have different meaning depending on where the spaces are placed. For example, godisnowhere could be “God is now here” or “God is nowhere.”

"But in the past 100 years or so, tens of thousands of manuscripts of the New Testament have been discovered, dating back centuries. And what biblical scholars now know is that later versions of the books differ significantly from earlier ones—in fact, even copies from the same time periods differ from each other. “There are more variations among our manuscripts than there are words in the New Testament”
 
I agree with +Paula Jones​ that this is an outstanding artcle

The explanation, such as it is, goes on to blame the parts of ISC's network that run WordPress, but it doesn't yet say what went wrong.

What might have happened?
The Internet Systems Consortium, better known as ISC, thinks it might have had a malware infection. An insecure installation of WordPress seems to be behind the problem...

The researchers noted that noncognitive skills are predictive of job performance, with employer surveys finding that such skills are valued in the workplace. Indeed, they wrote, "A growing body of empirical research shows that non-cognitive skills rival IQ in predicting educational attainment, labour market success, health, and criminality."
It may be just as important to evaluate schools based on students’ levels of motivation and perseverance as it is to judge them based on students' standardized test scores. A report released by the National Bureau of Economic Research in D...

Go West, young Han: How China and the new Silk Road threaten American imperialism

High-speed railways are revolutionizing trade in Eurasia -- and could upset the global balance of power

November 18, 2014: it’s a day that should live forever in history. On that day, in the city of Yiwu in China’s Zhejiang province, 300 kilometers south of Shanghai, the first train carrying 82 containers of export goods weighing more than 1,000 tons left a massive warehouse complex heading for Madrid. It arrived on December 9th.

Welcome to the new trans-Eurasia choo-choo train.  At over 13,000 kilometers, it will regularly traverse the longest freight train route in the world, 40% farther than the legendary Trans-Siberian Railway. Its cargo will cross China from East to West, then Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Poland, Germany, France, and finally Spain.

Cholera is caused when the bacterium Vibrio cholerae infects the small intestine. The disease is characterized by acute watery diarrhea resulting in severe dehydration. EPFL scientists have now demonstrated that V. cholerae uses a tiny spear to stab and kill neighboring bacteria - even of its own kind - and then steal their DNA.
