Good night, Sleeping Bear Dunes.

We went camping up north of Muskegon and visited Sleeping Bear Dunes with some old friends of ours.

It has been a great, relaxing weekend.

State by State, Democratic Party Is Erasing Ties to Jefferson and Jackson…

❝For all the attention this summer to the fight over the Confederate battle flag, the less noticed moves by Democratic parties to remove Jefferson and Jackson from their official identity underscore one of the most consequential trends of American politics: Democrats’ shift from a union-powered party organized primarily around economic solidarity to one shaped by racial and sexual identity.❞

#FTFY: In Case of Fire… Levitate!

Saw this sign at a doctor’s office today. Apart from the dubious value of the legally necessary Braille markings, and aside from the questionable wisdom of descending into the flames lurking at the bottom of said stairwell, what struck me most was the clear depiction of levitational abilities.

Of course, this brings to mind other questions best left unasked.

I didn't have a Sharpie on me, so I defaced the sign digitally. ツ Enjoy.

Outstanding in my field…

Not only am I sick and tired of sitting all day to do my ❝work,❞ I am persuaded that prolonged sitting—for literally hours at a time—is not only not doing me any favors, it is slowly killing me and makes losing weight very difficult.

So, I'm currently using a jerry-rigged standing desk down in my basement and I like it. Standing all day can be unhealthy, too, so I move my laptop to a table to alternate sitting as well.

If you’re considering a standing desk, I recommend checking out this thorough and educational review…

We have a mess of them at work. Folks go through about 6 to 9 months tying then out (claiming to love then) and then go back to sitting.

Thanks for this. I’m considering the GH4 for ENG interviews/field recording. But it looks like it may be worth waiting for the GX8.

“Mini ice age” coming in next 15 years, new model of the sun's cycle shows…

❝The model shows that solar activity will fall by 60 per cent between 2030 and 2040 causing a "mini ice age". The conditions predicted have not been experienced since the last "mini ice age" which lasted from 1645 to 1715, called the Maunder Minimum.❞

OTOH:

News about an imminent ‘mini ice age’ is trending — but it’s not true

Hackers Finally Post Stolen Ashley Madison Data

Thirty-Seven million men just soiled their pants…

❝A data dump, 9.7 gigabytes in size, was posted on Tuesday to the dark web using an Onion address accessible only through the Tor browser. The files appear to include account details and log-ins for some 32 million users of the social networking site, touted as the premier site for married individuals seeking partners for affairs. Seven years worth of credit card and other payment transaction details are also part of the dump, going back to 2007. The data, which amounts to millions of payment transactions, includes names, street address, email address and amount paid. AshleyMadison.com claimed to have nearly 40 million users at the time of the breach about a month ago, all apparently in the market for clandestine hookups.❞

❝The surest way to make a monkey of a man is to quote him. That remark in itself wouldn't make any sense if quoted as it stands.❞

Accidental selfie + photobomber!

I spent Sunday afternoon giving Jen the afternoon off while the kiddos and I took in a movie, explored some run-down building facades and toured a lighthouse.

While trying to shoot some broken windows from within the safe confines of the car, I accidentally reversed my iPhone's camera and took a selfie.

Meanwhile, my little photobombing monkey, Ellie, was ready to take advantage of the moment.

I'm guessing I should just always keep the camera on her! ツ

What could possibly go wrong?

New Letters Added to the Genetic Alphabet

❝Now, after decades of work, Benner’s team has synthesized artificially enhanced DNA that functions much like ordinary DNA, if not better. … The researchers have shown that two synthetic nucleotides called P and Z fit seamlessly into DNA’s helical structure, maintaining the natural shape of DNA. Moreover, DNA sequences incorporating these letters can evolve just like traditional DNA, a first for an expanded genetic alphabet.

❝The new nucleotides even outperform their natural counterparts. When challenged to evolve a segment that selectively binds to cancer cells, DNA sequences using P and Z did better than those without.❞
