In Europe there is much talk about dividing up a business like google to counter the alleged monopoly. One thing that is said about a monopoly is that it counters innovation. The thing with google though seems to be that they are in part so succesful because they are continuously sponsoring innovation. This spoon is a cool example.
Liftware is a stabilizing handle and a selection of attachments that include a soup spoon, everyday spoon, and fork. Liftware is specially designed to improve the lives of those with Essential Tremor, Parkinson’s Disease, or other motion disorders.

No, I can't imagine what the world would be like when it's 3-4 degrees warmer. And I prefer not to find out. But the evidence has convinced me that it will happen within a few generations if no action is taken.

But deniers are everywhere, even among the scientifically literate. Just yesterday a statistician in a dutch newspaper cherry picked temperature readings from the past 18 years to prove the mean temperature had not gone up significantly. Luckily this was debunked by others the day after. 
 
3 or 4 degrees may not sound like much, but the difference in global temperatures between today and the last ice age is only 5°C.

Any change in temperature will have huge effects on people and nature – which is why we need our leaders to act now to keep warming below 2°C.

Amazing! I would be terrified about not seeing a car in time when rounding one of the corners.

When will enough be enough...
 
An oil tanker sank on Tuesday in the Shela River, a sanctuary for dolphins, crocodiles and other aquatic animals in the  #Sundarbans that sweeps across the deltas of southwest Bangladesh and southeast India. This tangle of mudflats and waterways, flora and fauna is so diverse and precious that both countries protect it as national treasures.  +UNESCO designated the Sundarbans a World Heritage site because it is the largest contiguous mangrove forest on Earth. Oil spills and other human caused environmental disturbances are a threat. This photograph of the Sundarbans was taken from the #OrbitalPerspective of astronauts and cosmonauts living and working together in #space.

Really? I mean..... really? You have this wonderful, revolutionary process of 3D printing. It can be used in so many creative ways with so much promise for the future. And what do americans do with it, they make practical and deadly weapons. I'm sorry I can't get my head around this. Aren't there enough weapons already? I'm... no, just speechless.
A Pennsylvania machinist has created ammunition made specifically for 3D-printed guns that could allow them to fire many more shots without breaking.

The undisputable truth. The type of weather doesn't matter and even the scenery doesn't matter (although mountains are preferable :).
 
Agree.

Shocked to read about the death of Robin Williams. Endless appreciation for his genius.  #RIPRobinWilliams
 
We never expect to hear about death. We never wake up knowing someone will have died today. As we busy ourselves with all of the lovely distractions that life offers us... we push death away... like some unwanted vegetable on the dinner plate. But every once in a while, death enters our periphery and reminds us that it's still there. Not to scare us... not to terrorize us... only to remind us to cherish each bite of the meal put before us. Like it or not we will be made to eat our vegetables. My deepest gratitude for the man who reminded us to play with our food. Au revoir, Robin Williams. #robinwilliams #robin #riprobinwilliams #wiliams #deadpoetssociety

Please rehare.

Yes it did. Also sad to read that he himself was quite depressed.

At the EASS congress a few weeks ago I attended a discussion about the reviewers 'issue'. It's always interesting to read that the scientific world is in motion on a subject as important as this.
 
What is open peer review? What are the benefits and challenges? Read this great blog post from F1000Research! http://ow.ly/x8jAY #openaccess
This is the second in a series of posts in which we go into more detail about some of the concepts that F1000Research is based on. In the first instalment, we looked at open access. Here, we turn to open peer review. What is open peer review? What are the benefits and challenges?
