Cool. With a very slight change to the classical logistic map, you can get routes to #chaos without period doubling.

The new map (i.e., classic logistic plus squared sine):

f(x_n) = r x_n (1 - x_n) + mu sin^2(2 pi x_n)

It was only a matter of time... #PokemonGO

Coincidentally, looks a bit like the Enterprise, no? #STTOS #StarTrekBeyond
If you’re struggling to build your Pokémon posse because your Pokeballs are curving all over the place, Jon Cleaver has created a simple but brilliant iPhone case that serves as a guide for your finger to keep launches dead-straight, and vastly improve your monster capturing skills in Pokémon Go.

Don't be surprised if #PoGo takes you to #McDonalds in the near future. Lovin' it?
In the wake of its tremendous popularity, everyone’s wondering about is how Pokémon Go intends to make money. In addition to in-app purchases, Niantic chief John Hanke has said that the game intends to create “sponsored locations,” as they did with their earlier game Ingress. And a few enterprising Redditors apparently figured out who the company’s first customer will be.

Put down that diet soda! New study shows that sucralose makes you eat more throughout the day by triggering an ancient starvation pathway.

Having said that, the article does seem to imply that the problem is the sense of sweetness without any accompanying energy. So, as you say, aspartame might give same response...

When you marry a biologist, you end up taking a lot of pictures like these when you go on late night strolls through the desert.

We also saw a good looking rattlesnake. She didn't pick that one up... But our herp friends certainly would have given it a shot.

In case you thought that Brachymyrmex were small enough, take a look at their minims! You can see the relatively "giant" queen (weighing in around 2 mg) and a millimeter scale for reference. And under the scope these minims look like perfectly formed little #ants!

One more for scale. See that speck behind the queen's abdomen between her and my finger? Yeah, that's a minim.

No, it's not April Fools' Day nor is this a #TBT post. This new console from #Nintendo has an HDMI output, classic #NES controllers, and can link up to Wiimotes for a more modern experience. It comes preloaded with several classic NES games too.
Nintendo is on a bit of a nostalgia trip. First, Pokémon Go makes billions for the company in just a few days, and now the company is release an adorable new console.

That's super fun. The moon passes between the satellite and the earth, allowing you to see the "back" side of the moon as it passes. #photobomb

What I thought was really interesting ideas that the Sun is clearly behind us, hence the fully lit Earth. That means, however, that we're also seeing the fully lit Moon - it's actually as bright as a full Moon. The image shows how much brighter the Earth is by comparison.

Considering all that, can you imagine how bright the Earth was to the Apollo astronauts?

The lunchtime $9.95 deal for half pasta and half salad is a great value for the taste of the food. Otherwise, it would be hard to justify going here for lunch with specials costing $28 and most regular items in the neighborhood of $15. But the food is good to an American tongue (Italians will point out that it is only a cheap imitation though). The atmosphere is nice too -- especially out on the patio in non-summer months.

This isn't the worst place I've stayed in (especially for a motel), but it's not the best. If you can, it's probably better to stay in Holbrook (to the west) or Gallup (to the east). Stay here if you're too tired to make it to those. The hotel seems like it's not quite finished, stuck in a suspended state of construction without a lot of construction actually going on. Minor aspects of rooms are not quite complete. The water has a lot of particulate in it. The beds are comfortable enough, but the sheets don't feel as clean as you'd like. The free breakfast in the morning is a voucher for the adjoining restaurant. I recommend going for the French toast as the eggs are a small portion. The OJ is pretty bad, and chocolate milk is just white milk with a little syrup. If you're really tired on your drive, this place will be a major relief. Otherwise, wait another hour and stay in one of the nearby towns.

Modern hotel with very comfortable, spacious, quiet, pet-friendly, non-smoking rooms with AAA-member room rates. There is definitely an emphasis on comfort. Breakfast area is a little small, especially if there are kids running around, but hot breakfast includes eggs, sausage, and waffles as well as the normal continental options. Glad we stayed here and not at the nearby motels. Worth the slightly higher rate.
