If Google sees that you're searching for specific programming terms, they'll ask you to apply for a job. It's wild. Here's how it works.

Quantum Mechanics is the Sum of Alternative Paths:

In other words, how far towards Sirius do we have to stretch the alternative paths before quantum interference starts to kill their contribution?

First implementation of requestIdleCallback is in Chrome Canary!

What is it? It allows applications to cooperatively schedule background tasks such that they do not introduce delays to other high priority tasks that share the same event loop, such as input processing, animations and frame compositing. 

For more details on the API, the spec, and more examples, see:
https://w3c.github.io/requestidlecallback/

Finally, to get started:
- Boot up Chrome Canary
- Enable chrome://flags/#enable-experimental-web-platform-features
- Restart the browser
- Experiment with rIC, ..., and please provide feedback!

3D printed robotic hands inspired by superheroes and comic books won the UK James Dyson Award. "Bristol-born Joel Gibbard of Open Bionics set out to make low-cost robotic hands that amputees would want to show off after he became terrified as a teenager about what would happen if he one day lost a hand."
A low-cost robotic hand inspired by comic books has won the UK final of the James Dyson Award.

A review of a very interesting book that shows that a) quantum mechanics and b) much (if not all) of general relativity can be formalised in a strict finitist foundation. Not to mention all mathematics derived in the constructive system BISH.

That makes them Platonists  — whether they know it or not (sort of like automatically believing God exists), perhaps brainwashed by the educational system. :)
