I would crop it to be honest :-)

Also impressively shows the power of promotional/discount sales.  Makes it unsurprising that Ron Johnson was fired from JC Penney - he got rid of all their discount sales!

It's election year, hope some candidate brings up that issue.

SageMathCloud: A Collaborative Mathematics Research and Teaching Tool

University of Washington Professor +William Stein, recipient of a 2013 Google Research Award, has created SageMathCloud (SMC, http://goo.gl/B30gya), a robust, low-latency web application for collaboratively editing mathematical documents and code. Built on top of standard open-source tools and using Google Compute Engine (http://goo.gl/6PZT6D) as a hosting platform, SMC a viable platform for mathematics research, as well as a powerful tool for teaching any mathematically-oriented course.

Fascinating ...essay?. Favorite quote - "Or writing to a "console", which is like figuring out where your dog goes during the day by following the trail of droppings"

Marshall: cool! I'll keep that book in mind.

The essay is really interesting. It made me aware of a bunch of things about programming that I'd never really thought about. I really like his Scrubbing Calculator, too.

Interesting idea, I wonder if it works better than the automated options?

There might be a market for this on less popular routes where the automated search engines don't always provide optimal results.

Even though the Higgs boson was found, the Standard model is still not mathematically rigorous. Any leftover LHC money that can be used for that?

"A full-fledged treatment of particle physics requires quantum field theory, which uses representations of a noncompact Lie group called the Poincar´e group on infinite-dimensional Hilbert spaces. This brings in a lot of analytical subtleties, which make it hard to formulate theories of particle physics in a mathematically rigorous way. In fact, no one has yet succeeded in doing this for the Standard Model."

Fun fact: For non-trivial quantum field theories, perturbation theory (=Taylor series expansion in the coupling constant) generally has divergent subseries. So the amplitude depends on the order of summands. Though that is just the starting point for a long story about nonperturbative contributions...
