"Scientific doomsday" is upon us
(via Daniel Sarewitz from CSPO at +Arizona State University, Tempe Campus)
Scientists must publish less, says Daniel Sarewitz, or good research will be swamped by the ever-increasing volume of poor work.

+Matt McIrvin -- Exactly. I think that's exactly the meaning the Price (the original author of the "scientific doomsday" phrase) was intending. From the article linked above (emphasis added by me):

"More than 50 years ago, Price predicted that the scientific enterprise would soon have to go through a transition from exponential growth to “something radically different”, unknown and potentially threatening."

"Mathematical modeling can be taught at every stage of a student’s mathematical education, from kindergarten to undergraduate school and beyond, as a basis for developing problem-solving skills and mathematical habits of mind."
Rachel Levy discusses the new national Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Mathematical Modeling Education (GAIMME), a report co-published by SIAM. The report explores the benefits of teaching mathematical modeling from an early age.

Apparently insects and crustaceans hold the key to understanding the origin of consciousness...

(alternatively, invertebrate researchers should probably brace themselves for IACUC in the future...)

An Australian scientist and a philosopher propose that the structure of insect brains suggests they have the capacity for basic awareness.

So my neighbor decided to slice off a beautiful section of blooming tree to make room for his eyesore of a +DIRECTV​ dish. Who even uses satellite TV anymore? Do I live next to a BW3 from 1995?

Actually, the much lower compression of the satellite feed results in WAY better picture for us than cable... it's very noticeable when we visit friends. Plus, seeing we're in SEC country, satellite TV gives us a way better deal when accessing BTN for Michigan Sports. The DirecTV guide and DVR interface is lightyears better than our cable provider's, and, lastly, the base service package is about $20/month cheaper than cable. I do still have to pay (WAY too much) for cable internet... but, all in all, we like DirecTV substantially better than cable.

Family-owned classic restaurant on the ASU campus. A frequent location for ASU visitors and catered events. The food is expensive, and the menu changes periodically, but the food is usually very good with nice portion sizes. It's not great for vegetarians -- you might be stuck with only one possible entrée. In general, when you get tired of the entrées, try combining an appetizer and a soup or salad -- the price is not much different than the entrée, and it makes for a much more diverse menu. The bread pudding dessert is very odd -- it's gigantic with a toasted mushroom topping. It's not bad, but it's probably not what you were expecting.

Great north Indian food, but the service is sometimes very slow especially if you're waiting to place a dessert order after your main food. There is live music some nights. Lately, it has been very empty in the restaurant, and I worry about the longevity of the place. Again, the food is fantastic.

The pretzels and cheese appetizers and unique pizza topping combinations give this major chain restaurant its charm. Don't forget that there is a pick-up window so you can avoid the rowdy inside filled with families and kids at some locations and college kids at others.
