Truly stretching the limit of the word "Street" here, but super cool.
Sunday, March 1, 2015 at 11:00 PM. Home to millions of plant, animal and insect species, the Amazon rainforest is one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. Undiscovered species thrive in the canopies of the primary forests, atop trees that have stood for centuries.

Finally starting to see uses for big data and data mining that I approve of! Yesterday, breast cancer research. Today food!
By studying the network of links between Indian recipes, computer scientists have discovered that the presence of certain spices makes a meal much less likely to contain ingredients with flavors in common.

Android Studio 1.1 final is now available in the stable update channel. You can also download full installers from http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

This version is primarily a bug fix release, though it does include a handful of new features - primarily unit testing support, watch face templates, mipmap icons, many new lint checks, and basic BCP47 3-letter language code support, along with support for the new version of the Android Gradle plugin, also version 1.1.

For the full details, see the release announcement at

Check out this great new video from my buddy +Jarek Wilkiewicz. It's a great overview of how to use search to reach more users.
 
For nearly two decades, Google has been helping web developers connect their content to their users. But in today’s world, information can be found in apps, as well as websites. That’s why, today, we’re announcing Google Search for Developers, a single destination for information about all of the APIs that you can use to integrate with Search. To learn more, watch the video with +Jarek Wilkiewicz below, and visit https://g.co/developersearch to get started.

A plea for Bug Data where it counts. With thanks to +Benjamin Hill​
I am dying, literally, at my home in Hollywood, of metastatic breast cancer, the only kind of breast cancer that kills. For six years I've known I was going to die. I just didn't know when.

"We now know that breast cancer is not one disease. What works for one person might not for another: There is no one “cure.” We are each, in effect, one-person clinical trials. Yet the knowledge generated from those trials will die with us because there is no comprehensive database of metastatic breast cancer patients, their characteristics and what treatments did and didn't help them.

In the Big Data-era, this void is criminal. Consider what Wall Street does. Even the tiniest companies can see how much stock they sell, compare themselves to cohorts, review history, predict trends. Why can't we create such a database for cancer patients, so we can all learn from patient experiences and make more educated decisions on what treatments will extend and improve lives?"

#cloudcomputing  could go a long way to addressing this #bigdata   #bigdataanalytics  issue

Wasn't unhappy, just forgot to smile. Sometimes I have resting-bear-face. #Geohipster. Found out that Twitter and FB strip the EXIF data, while G+ preserves it which is cool. You can see where I took the picture in the Photo details. Remember though that the location is where the phone was, not necessarily where what was pictured resides.
