In recent years, a body of research has shown that beneficial microbes play a critical role in how our bodies work. And it turns out there's a lot of communication between our gut and our brain.

Just lost my account. I may fake an ID to get it back, or just assume that I'll have a series of throwaway accounts.

Kill it! While we are at it, gmt for everyone, and a location based solar time for our calendars.

Once again, the beltway consensus screws us. Glad I've never applied for a security clearance. Growing up among people who worked in the classified to SCI (black door projects) part of the world, I've never romanticised that kind of stuff.
 
President Obama truly doesn't believe in accountability for massive failure -- by torturers, bankers and now the head of an agency where pathetic, known security lapses helped China get access to an incredibly sensitive database on government workers and people holding security clearances.

Meanwhile, the NSA has laughed off the part of its duties in which it's supposed to focus on defense, not just offense.

And this is what we get. It'll keep happening because no one has any accountability for anything in our government or top business dealings, if they're near the top of their ladders.
Undetected for nearly a year, Chinese intruders executed a sophisticated hack that gave them “administrator privileges” in government networks. Their ultimate target: information on anyone seeking a security clearance.

Worth reading to the end. 
Are professional ethicists good people? According to our research, not especially. So what is the point of learning ethics?

This is a must watch, well, if you liked the movie.
 
By now, the entire internet’s realized that Deep Dream, Google’s artificial neural network, is capable of some pretty trippy images. But what happens when you run a movie about acid trips through the acid trip generator? Fear and Loathing in your worst nightmares, that’s what.

Great app, download 10-20mb instead of 250 for nightlies. Do turn OFF zip verification when you flash though.
