OpenJDK 7 will eventually be lead by Andrew Halley . The Project page has already been moved over to the wiki .
From the Wiki:
"The source code for the last release, 7u80, is available by cloning the jdk7u master forest : http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk7u/jdk7u/. The final build of that release was tagged as jdk7u80-b15."
Marx is important indeed (more historically and to understand his appeal specially in Latin America), but there are many 'escapes' from his biased and flawed world of view. You just require some more better sources...
"What’s most amazing? We’ve managed to zoom in by more than a factor of 10^200, or more than a googol squared, and we still find this same self-similarity, and the same remarkable, intricate structures."
Compare that 10^200 scale to the universe: from the plank scale to observable scale is only about 62 orders of magnitude. Mindblowing!
It's universal, that smell of rain. Nearly every human who has ever lived, knows it.
From EarthSky, we have an explanation of what it is, and it's not what you think.
From the article
The word is “petrichor,” and it’s used to describe the distinct scent of rain in the air. Or, to be more precise, it’s the name of an oil that’s released from the Earth into the air before rain begins to fall.
This heady smell of oncoming wet weather is something most people are familiar with – in fact, some scientists now suggest that humans inherited an affection for the smell from ancestors who relied on rainy weather for their survival.
By steam distilling rocks that had been exposed to warm, dry conditions in the open, they discovered a yellowish oil – trapped in rocks and soil but released by moisture – that was responsible for the smell.
The oil itself was thus named petrichor – the blood of the stone.
The smell itself comes about when increased humidity – a pre-cursor to rain – fills the pores of stones (rocks, soil, etc) with tiny amounts of water.
