It's not heart breaking, it's disgusting. 
 
Creatures across the world are being decimated as humans kill them for food in unsustainable numbers, while polluting or destroying their habitats. In the last 40 years we lost half of our wildlife!

Thank you for making this video. Made me think of the Superbowl ad "Like a girl."

I wrote something! 
This tweet from Marc Andreesen and RT'd by Dave McClure caught my eye: Great roundup of 10 essays (including one by me) on building things: medium.com/@brendanbaker/… @brendanbaker I clicked the link because as an entrepreneur who is building a company, and chairperson for a nonprofit organization that helps people "build" things, it [...]

Thanks for sharing your unboxing video with us, Thomas! That is the first WOW BotBot I have ever seen! Also, I love Prudence the Pug and the quick cameo by your cat. In some of my videos my dog Sydney makes noises too. :)

A team of researchers based at several Japanese universities made prototype sticky sensors that they've now tested on the still-beating hearts of living rats.

When furries escape.
In some zoos in Japan and China, staff members perform regular security drills to practice their response to a large animal escape by using costumed zookeepers as the fugitive animals. Individuals in furry costumes or pairs in full-size mockups of larger animals run through zoo property, sometimes inflicting mock injuries, as fellow zookeepers work to surround, subdue, and recapture them.

I feel like this isn't particularly useful... people react differently than animals, also we're not quite as fast/agile >_>

Thank you! I found a heart pocket I made many many years ago at Elementary school and I couldn't figure out how to make one. My son and I made one over the weekend and he loved it.

A timeline of papers that represent something of the spirit of the development of computer science over the past 100 years. Criteria included:

The paper must have changed the world.
The paper must have changed the author's perspective.
Only one paper is allowed from each decade.
Computer science and mathematics papers are challenging but rewarding. I might not always grok the notation or have the background to fully appreciate the conclusions, but they are a good way for me to expand my horizons.

Introduction

Hi and thanks for being here!

I'm a Tech Director at the Connected Learning Alliance & DML Research Hub. I co-founded the LA Makerspace and serve as Chairwoman. I also co-created the LA tech stratup map, Represent.LA.

This is general list of things I tend to post:

  • Technology
  • Conservation
  • MAKE / DIY 
  • Women in Tech 
  • Los Angeles, 
  • Digital Media Learning,  
  • Mentoring & Coaching, 
  • Traveling, 
  • Kid Stuff, 
  • Animal Advocacy
  • and things that make me laugh.

Hearts and Hugs,

Tara
