That was the closest rainbow (on rain... it's easy with fountains) I've ever seen. It's barely visible on pictures but it was quite clear to the naked eye. I guess that's because of exposure time. But zoom in, you can resolve colors on individual droplets.

When your family is attacked, you hug them closer.

Make no mistake: we encourage actions like the terror in Orlando when we name call, demonize gay people, spread misinformation, or otherwise create situations to make a certain group feel unsafe. Our own prejudice validates those who want to harm others and gives them confidence. We need to think, every moment, about how we can bring more people closer together; not about how we can elevate ourselves above at-risk groups. My advice? Go online and search. Read people's stories. But, above all, ask questions. Be curious, not afraid.

My heart, my tears, and my thoughts go out to everyone directly affected. And a special thought for every single gay man, woman, or kid, every trans person or open-minded experiencer out there - This man wanted people like us to feel afraid. He targeted all of us last night. But, instead of fear, we hold each other.

Drowning doesn't look like drowning. It's time for the annual re-post of maritime safety expert and former USCG rescue swimmer +Mario Vittone 's article.

What's happening physiologically when someone is drowning -- why it doesn't look like on TV:

1. Except in rare circumstances, drowning people are physiologically unable to call out for help. The respiratory system was designed for breathing. Speech is the secondary or overlaid function. Breathing must be fulfilled before speech occurs.

2. Drowning people’s mouths alternately sink below and reappear above the surface of the water. The mouths of drowning people are not above the surface of the water long enough for them to exhale, inhale, and call out for help. When the drowning people’s mouths are above the surface, they exhale and inhale quickly as their mouths start to sink below the surface of the water.

3. Drowning people cannot wave for help. Nature instinctively forces them to extend their arms laterally and press down on the water’s surface. Pressing down on the surface of the water permits drowning people to leverage their bodies so they can lift their mouths out of the water to breathe.

4. Throughout the Instinctive Drowning Response, drowning people cannot voluntarily control their arm movements. Physiologically, drowning people who are struggling on the surface of the water cannot stop drowning and perform voluntary movements such as waving for help, moving toward a rescuer, or reaching out for a piece of rescue equipment.

5. From beginning to end of the Instinctive Drowning Response people’s bodies remain upright in the water, with no evidence of a supporting kick. Unless rescued by a trained lifeguard, these drowning people can only struggle on the surface of the water from 20 to 60 seconds before submersion occurs.”

This doesn’t mean that a person that is yelling for help and thrashing isn’t in real trouble—they are experiencing aquatic distress. Not always present before the Instinctive Drowning Response, aquatic distress doesn’t last long—but unlike true drowning, these victims can still assist in their own rescue. They can grab lifelines, throw rings, etc.

Look for these other signs of drowning when persons are in the water:

Head low in the water, mouth at water level
Head tilted back with mouth open
Eyes glassy and empty, unable to focus
Eyes closed
Hair over forehead or eyes
Not using legs—vertical
Hyperventilating or gasping
Trying to swim in a particular direction but not making headway
Trying to roll over on the back
Appear to be climbing an invisible ladder

“With the Advanced LIGO detectors continuing to improve, the VIRGO detector in Italy coming online and upcoming gravitational wave interferometers slated to be built in both Japan and India, we’re finally making direct observations of the invisible Universe. We’re not merely gathering light and inferring what must be there indirectly; we’re measuring the ripples in the fabric of space itself. For the first time in human history, we’re engaging in astronomy without a telescope at all. For the first time, an astronomical observatory is detecting signals where no light is emitted or absorbed. Einstein was right again, and over 100 years after he formulated his greatest theory, we’re all sharing in its riches.”

On September 14th, 2015, just days after turning on, the twin Advanced LIGO detectors detected the first gravitational wave signature: a merger between two black holes, of 36 and 29 solar masses. They inspiraled, they merged, and they lost 5% of their rest mass to gravitational radiation, sending ripples through the fabric of space due to Einstein’s E = mc^2. It raised a whole slew of questions: were these typical black holes? Where were the lighter ones? How many other events would LIGO see? And was this a fluke? Today, a second gravitational wave event was announced: GW151226, occurring the day after Christmas, saw a 14 and an 8 solar mass black hole merger together from 1.4 billion light years away. The Universe has always been speaking to us, and thanks to the power of gravitational wave observatories, we’re finally learning how to listen in a whole new way.

Go get the whole story on what this means today!
The first observation of merging black holes was an incredible confirmation for General Relativity. Now, the scientific payoff begins.

Let us read what we paid for

Imagine a business like this: you get highly trained experts to give you their research for free... and then you sell it back to them.  Of course these experts need equipment, and they need to earn a living... so you get taxpayers to foot the bill.  

And if the taxpayers want to actually read the papers they paid for?   Then you charge them a big fee!

It's not surprising that with this business model, big publishers are getting rich while libraries go broke.  Reed-Elsevier has a 37% profit margin!

But people are starting to fight back — from governments to energetic students like ‎Alexandra Elbakyan here.

On Friday, the Competitiveness Council —a gathering of European ministers of science, innovation, trade, and industry—said that all publicly funded scientific papers published in Europe should be made free to access by 2020

This will start a big fight, and it may take longer than 2020.   But Alexandra Elbakyan isn't waiting around.

In 2011, as a computer science grad student in Kazakhstan, she got sick of paying big fees to read science papers.  She set up SciHub, a pirate website that steals papers from the publishers and sets them free.

SciHub now has 51,000,000 papers in its database.  In October 2015, Elsevier sued them.  In November, their domain name was shut down.  But they popped up somewhere else.  By February, people were downloading 200,000 papers per day.   Even scientists with paid access to the publisher's databases are starting to use SciHub, because it's easier to use.

Clearly piracy is the not the ultimate solution. Elbakyan now lives in an undisclosed location, to avoid being extradited.  But she gave the world a much-needed kick in the butt.   The old business model of get smart people to work for free and sell the product back to them is on its way out.

For more, read:

John Bohannon, Who's downloading pirated papers? Everyone, Science, 28 April 2016, http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2016/04/whos-downloading-pirated-papers-everyone

and especially the SciHub Twitter feed:

https://twitter.com/Sci_Hub

27 May 2016, http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2016/05/dramatic-statement-european-leaders-call-immediate-open-access-all-scientific-papers

The Dutch government is really pushing this!  Congratulations to them!

Imagine what might have happened if the toilet was implemented in Assembler. You put your code in wrong section, and you genitals get executed instead.

For a romantic weekend with secret lover. Absolutely charming place. Just a few rooms, but the standard is equivalent of 3* or even 4*. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Beautiful place on the edge of Wigry National Park, at the shore of a small lake. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. Note there is no restaurant here. But nearby Suwałki offer many restaurants. Also restaurant in Camedule monastery in Wigry is an option.

Avoid this place. Let me start with things that were nice: - location is really great: in a picturesque bay of the lake. The lake is to the north west, so in the summer you can enjoy sunsets over the water. - breakfast was surprisingly good. Now, what is bad: everything else. - surrounding of the hotel is total mess (except for the lake side). - rooms are dirty, hot and humid. - bathroom is okayish but smelly. - personnel is nice towards guests, but when they think nobody hears, they yell at each other and abuse swear words. Extra points if you understand Polish. - restaurant is poor (except for breakfasts, see above). Very poor selection, meals aren't tasty. To summarize: I enjoyed a night here anyways. But if I had come here with a loved one, I'd have had bad time. The place isn't worth three stars. Also it's severly overpriced for the quality.
