Psychology has a golden rule: If I am warm, you are usually warm. If I am hostile, you are too. But what happens if you flip the script and meet hostility with warmth? It's called "noncomplementary behavior" — a mouthful, but a powerful concept, and very hard to execute. Alix and Hanna examine three attempts to pull it off: during a robbery, a terrorism crisis and a dating dry spell.

One of the few shows I will re-watch shortly after the initial viewing and this from a guy who normally doesn't re-watch shows at all. 
BoJack Horseman begins its third season with a leg up on its titular character, who’s still chasing down critical acclaim in a desperate attempt to find meaning in his life. The second season of Raphael Bob-Waksberg’s tragicomedy was as densely packed with jokes as it was despair. But where BoJack i

Eric Harrell 3D prints an amazing and functional mini Subaru flat-four engine #3DPrinting #3DThursday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/07/21/eric-harrell-3d-prints-an-amazing-and-functional-mini-subaru-flat-four-engine-3dprinting-3dthursday/

If you’re a guy, chances are you’ve probably opened the hood of your car, poked around for a bit and then thought “Yep, that’s an engine”. While most men are fascinated by engines, unfortunately many of us can do little more than check the oil. But if you’re eager to learn more, you can now do so at home without taking your own car apart. Mechanical engineer Eric Harrell has just shared a 3D printable 35-percent scale model of a Subaru’s EJ20 flat-four engine that is fully functional, though obviously not a real engine. A perfect 3D printing project that will teach you all about how engines actually function.

If this project sounds familiar, that’s because this isn’t actually Harrell’s first 3D printed engine. The mechanical engineer, who goes by ERICTHEPOOLBOY online, has previously shared numerous fantastic car-related 3D printing projects, including this working 3D printed replica of a Toyota 4 Cylinder Engine 22RE back in January. Most importantly, like that Toyota replica, this Subaru engine is not an actual engine. “It’s fully functional as in all parts move as intended in the real thing. Do not confuse it with a real engine, as this is not,” Harrell says.

Wood chip bioreactors are simple trenches that can be constructed on farms to clean the water that flows out of tile drains. Although the bioreactors are already a proven practice, more work remains to be done.

A lot of computing pioneers were women. For decades, the number of women in computer science was growing. But in 1984, something changed.

Overt discrimination in the labor markets may be on the wane, but women are still subtly penalized by all sorts of societal conventions. How can those penalties be removed without burning down the house?

It's a typical Best Buy. Sometimes the staff are useful, sometimes they don't acknowledge you are there. Prices are about on par with every other store that sells appliances and electronics.

Service was as one might expect. Parking is tight, as per area usual. A small bit of peeling paint in the bathroom and HVAC wasn't working quite right but staff was friendly and helpful.
