Many thanks to Anurag, Alex, and others who provide us with Google Scholar.
 
Here's a look at Anurag Acharya and Google Scholar on the service's tenth anniversary.  Anurag just can't quit it.

Scholar is a wonderful thing and I'm very glad it exists. My only complaint is that the way it does venue impact rankings is not very useful. H-index for a venue is mostly just a measure of how big the venue is, not what its quality is. Much better would be to measure the median number of citations to papers published at the venue.

Hi Sanjay, I really hope you don't mind me commenting like this here, but I have to let you know what your Collections fans have been up to.

Collections are a great feature, and after having authored a few myself, I came to realize  they were not that easy to find in a search.

With that in mind, I came up with the idea of creating a Community which would allow members to share their own Collections, and those of others. And to include a whole new approach to moderation too.

We have created categories where the Collections can be added and found easily by our viewers and members. We allow and recommend hashtags be used in the comment box when sharing with us, to make it easier for the Collection to be found when using the communities search box.

I have to admit, it wasn't easy at first to convince members how important it was for a community such as ours. A collection of Collections if you like, but much more.

But, and after explaining the importance and viewer friendliness of our community, we soon started picking up speed. Granted, we are small in numbers compared to a photo sharing community, but we are extremely high in quality Collections, popular well known members, and have only been going just a few weeks.

We are at this time only just over 500 members strong, but we do share over 400 of our members Collections. That is a great ratio in any community books.

We are doing what we can to promote Collections here, and would appreciate any help and advice you can offer. Maybe you could post Collection update information to our community directly, as you get it. Or offer advice to our members and I?

In the meantime, please take a look at our Community, as I am sure you will be impressed.

Kind regards and best wishes.

cuteoverload.com should start making some business deals.

From the abstract:
Performance indexed by the number of successful trials increased after viewing cute images (puppies and kittens; M ± SE = 43.9±10.3% improvement) more than after viewing images that were less cute (dogs and cats; 11.9±5.5% improvement).

Yes, it's her.  Wikipedia has a good summary about her blog.

The stolen syrup was a small portion (8M lb or 15%) of the national strategic syrup reserve. The currently recovered syrup was a small portion (7%) of the stolen one.

Not a very sappy ending so far. Conspiracy theories and puns abound.

Fun blog from a primary school student in Scotland about her daily lunches, each one tagged with "Food-o-meter", Mouthfuls, Courses, Health Rating, Price, and Pieces of hair (usually zero fortunately).
I decided to try something new today and I chose the vegetable spring rolls from the menu. They came with sticky rice which was amazing because it stuck to itself but not to my fork. My soup today mus...

When he visited Google, somebody asked him if he really did make (and eat) cheese from human milk- and he didn't deny it.

From National Geographic's photo of the day:

"A very rare, adrenaline-packed showdown between two spotted predators: a male cheetah and a female leopard. The leopard came to steal the cheetah's fresh kill."

Reading (but not understanding) Korean. There's probably a Simon and Garfunkel song about that.

I learned to read Korean for a short trip I had there several years ago. It took a couple of hours. I couldn't pronounce anything properly (the sounds are really subtly different from English), but I could totally turn Korean words into the romanized versions in the guidebook, and thus decipher things like menus. Totally forgotten it now. And yes, I could understand absolutely nothing (er, except for a few menu items).
