we can do better...
As one of Bernie’s delegates, I’m disappointed so far. But we’re still fighting hard.

Earth from Space: New York City Thermal Infrared Overlay

In this composite image you can see parts of New York City and New Jersey, imaged by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) with a thermal infrared overlay taken by the Thermal InfraRed Sensor (TIRS) aboard Landsat 8. The images were taken July 25th, 2015 at 3:39pm GMT.

When I processed this image I was surprised about the distribution of hot spots. I expected Central Park to be as cool as it is because dense vegetation prevents urban heat islands (https://goo.gl/X14sgO). But although the rest of Manhattan has a somewhat sparse vegetation the surface temperatures are cool in comparison to other areas. At first I thought I made a mistake yet when comparing this image to the infrared image in the article linked below they show a similar distribution of hot spots. Take a look here and read more about urban heat islands:

Technical Data

For those interested, here the technical data for this image. The underlying image is a panchromatic OLI Band 8 image, the overlay is a combination of Thermal InfraRed Sensor (TIRS, https://goo.gl/bAzPDO) Bands 10 and 11 images. The resulting colors represent the surface temperature from purple-blue (cool) to yellow-red (warm). Image scale is 15 meters/pixel. Image resolution for the underlying image is 15 meters, the thermal infrared data has a resolution of 100 meters.

Story
Tagline
If you have enough data, there usually *is* one correct way to do things.
Introduction
Before you read anything, go take 4 minutes and watch this video about how awesome human engineers are - this video shows hows an accelerometer works and more awesomely, how it's actually made! (an accelerometer is the thing that tells your phone when to rotate the screen)

An eternal optimist, I'm extremely excited to be alive at this point in human history. The internet is the final step in the evolution of communication, but the first step to a greater collective human intelligence than we can possibly imagine. One person to one person by the fireside, to one person to many in village squares, to one person to many more people via printing presses and distributed literature, to radio broadcasts and finally to televised visuals across the planet, we have only ever had a unidirectional format of distribution. But in *only* the past 20 years (20 years!!!) we have gained the ability of every (connected) person to be heard and be able to reply to every other person on the planet. If you're not completely floored by that concept (and even more amazed to have witnessed it come about) then you're really missing something great.

Thanks to our 24/7, emotion-based info-tainment media machine, we see way more about the world than at any other time in history. And depending on who you're watching for your information, this can be a great problem for the larger population.

If you find yourself getting mad at a news article, there's a very real chance that you're being manipulated by that media outlet. Step back and try to empathize and truly understand what it would be like to be on the other side. Think about how the other side grew up, what their parents were like, how they eat, sleep and go to the bathroom (the basic problems of every human on the planet). If you can think about that (without making sophmoric, juvenile jokes) then you're one step closer to understanding *why* you disagree and not simply disagreeing "because they're just wrong".

We need more understanding as we face this deluge of information. The beauty is that you can understand almost anything you want, thanks to the internet.

You'll be rewarded with a whole new circle of friends that grows organically, and is probably way more interesting than your current social (dare I say) echo chamber??

I work in Tribeca where all the bars are a sh*tshow after work. Yeah, you have to take the L out here or walk from the JZ (only marginally less hipster) but as an after work place, it's chill and cheap (drafts are $4 til 9)

As this place gets more popular (and I realize that these reviews are facilitating that) it gets a little more dooch*ee. At present, 8:45 Tuesday the guy next to me can't stop talking about how he found this place and has been coming here for years. But in general, nice place, nice drinks, nice service. Time will erode the ambiance.

Was amazing, then they recently sold it and it seems the new staff just kinda half-asses things. Meh. Food is still fine, but with the old ambiance, this place rocked.
