I wonder why we cannot rename our Capsules? Would that be a difficult change to make +Ingress​ ?

The material is called Vantablack, and it absorbs 99.96% of the light that hits it. The visual effect resembles the ACME portable holes that Wile E. Coyote never got the hang of.
 
Nanoparticle #technology is responsible for a substance being called “the blackest black in the world.” Objects coated in #Vantablack reflect so little light that they appear two-dimensional. See how the substance was created and how it could increase solar energy efficiency: http://intel.ly/1FCvnSR #Science

What came first, humans or stone tools?
Apparently...stone tools!
Archaeologists have made a discovery that may mean our school textbooks have to be rewritten.
According to a paper published by the science journal Nature, the oldest stone tools made by our human ancestors have been discovered in northwestern Kenya and they date back 3.3 million years -- about 700,000 years before the oldest tools previously unearthed.
Archaeologists have found the oldest stone tools known to mankind, dating to 3.3 million years ago -- 700,000 years older than previously thought.

Funny, I never thought of fish as being warm or cold blooded before, apparently there is at least one warm blooded fish out there...

That makes the opah (Lampris guttatus) the first warm-blooded fish every discovered. Most fish are exotherms, meaning they require heat from the environment to stay toasty. The opah, as an endotherm, keeps its own temperature elevated even as it dives to chilly depths of 1,300 feet (396 meters) in temperate and tropical oceans around the world.
The tire-size opah, which can weigh up to 200 pounds, thrives in cold ocean depths by keeping its blood warm, making it the first fish ever discovered to generate its own body heat. It does so in a bizarre way.

The findings, published today in Nature, show that as many as one-fifth of all genes in blood cells undergo seasonal changes in expression.

I did not know that, Nature is awesome!
In the winter, your blood contains a denser blend of immune responders, while summer veins swim with fat-burning, water-retaining hormones.

I think this will be a good thing.
 
Is your web site ready for Google's Mobilegeddon?

Google is changing its search algorithm tomorrow to favor mobile friendly sites. The change is being called Mobilegeddon because sites that are not sufficiently optimized for viewing on a smartphone will be knocked down the rankings in Google search results. The research firm Portent said that 10,000 websites out of the top 25,000 sites failed Google's mobile-ready test, including the Department of Homeland Security. 

Is YOUR site ready?

It's a beautiful day for a run along the Petitcodiac River in Moncton, New Brunswick.
This river has quite a history.

There is ALWAYS a price!
 
Tylenol / acetominaphen -- kills pleasure as well as pain!
Painkilling drugs taken every week by almost a quarter of Americans kill positive emotions.

Hire this man!
A distiller has come up with a method of producing spirits that taste like they've been aging in the barrel for 20 years, but his process only takes six days.

Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things.
Introduction
Born in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada.  I love hanging out with my family, drinking French wine, playing Flag Football, the NFL, Science, Philosophy, and pretty much anything geeky.
People tell me that I'm funny, but I'm never quite sure how to take that.

Also, I get confused with punctuation, and I only post publicly some of the time.
  
Suggested circles to put me in.
