"A “bioreactor façade” has been mounted as a “second skin” onto the sun-facing sides of the BIQ building. The panels contain algae that grows in the direct sunlight. It can then be harvested and turned into a biofuel-like pulp that is burned in a generator at the heart of the building."
A unique algae-powered building is to be officially unveiled on Saturday at the International Building Exhibition in Hamburg.

"When planting flowers and digging in the dirt, use hip hinging to save your knees and lower back. Maintain your spinal shape as you bend from the hips. Take a wider stance to reach the ground more easily.  When you feel your hamstrings pulling, bend your knees to keep from tucking.  Check to see that your knees track over your feet and that your shoulders remain back for good blood flow to your arms and hands. Try resting one elbow or forearm on your thigh as the other hand performs your gardening tasks to reduce the demand on the muscles in your back.”

Did some garden work this morning. How did I do? Like those horrible yoga poses I can't do either.

Good point. When I make an extension it's part of my app. It's only consumable if you download my app so it pushes my agenda as well as apple's. With Google Now are you just a another unbranded data supplier to Google?

"Interestingly, the main competition to Android Wear takes an app-centric view, which is very different. I noted just last week how there were so many Apple Watch apps at launch compared to those available for Android Wear, which has been around since last June. There are already 3,500 Apple Watch apps according to the company's CEO, Tim Cook, speaking to investors just yesterday.

Google can't seem to get the same high profile apps on its watch, but with the continued expansion of Google Now partners, maybe it doesn't need to. By integrating existing phone apps with Google Now, the most useful information can still be found on an Android Wear watch."
Summary:Google Now -- and by extension, Android Wear -- becomes a little more useful thanks to new third-party integrations that provide highly valuable information at a glance.

Tesla's 7 kWh $3,000 For daily cycle applications is a good price point. Link two of these tother and you have a great place to store solar energy during the day for the night. With this simple tech it's far more feasible to be independent of the energy company. Having a battery room was not something I wanted to take on.

"Now, 2,000+ years later, Akkadian is making a small comeback. At Cambridge University, Dr. Martin Worthington, an expert in Babylonian and Assyrian grammar, has started recording readings of poems, myths and other texts in Akkadian, including The Epic of Gilgamesh. This clip gives you a taste of what Gilgamesh, one of the earliest known works of literature, sounds like in its mother tongue. Or, you can jump into the full collection of readings right here."

I hate watches, yet I bought two, one for Linda and one for me. Why? I built a watch extension for my app PicBak so I pretty much had to get one.

The white sport 38mm Apple watch arrived this night. Yay. This is my wife's watch but I get to use it too until mine arrives in the far far future.

First impression is the package is heavy. The ups driver thought there must be a big transformer in the watch to be so heavy. Nope, the watch reliquary is just heavy. I guess that means luxury.

The watch itself is thick and heavy on Linda's wrist. And if you have bad eyesight the 38 mm may not be a good choice.

For me the larger band that comes with the watch just barely fits and it looks small to me. Also, I can't seem to lock the larger band into place.

The white plastic band looks and feels good. It just oozes quality. As does the whole watch. The screen looks fantastic. The graphics are precise and beautiful. Very impressed with over all look and feel.

Figuring out how to use the watch is a challenge. Nothing worked at first. I eventually figured out I was pressing too hard. Force touch requires a gentle touch.

Going dick Tracy and talking through the watch was very cool. I think a lot of the features will only make sense when other people you know have the watch too.mi look forward to that.

My extension actually worked, though not quite in the way was expecting. At least I can test the real thing now. Performance to the phone is adequate, there are delays which make it difficult to know what's going on.

Overall, very nice. It's a complex beast so I'm interested to see how people adjust to it.

Not sure what these are, but they are lovely. It seems they like to grow in out of the way places which makes them lovelier.

Just watched Manufacture of Doubt yesterday, so this is no surprise. It's pretty depressing...

The Rise of Partisanship and Super-Cooperators in the U.S. House of Representatives

"It is widely reported that partisanship in the United States Congress is at an historic high. Given that individuals are persuaded to follow party lines while having the opportunity and incentives to collaborate with members of the opposite party, our goal is to measure the extent to which legislators tend to form ideological relationships with members of the opposite party. We quantify the level of cooperation, or lack thereof, between Democrat and Republican Party members in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1949–2012. We define a network of over 5 million pairs of representatives, and compare the mutual agreement rates on legislative decisions between two distinct types of pairs: those from the same party and those formed of members from different parties. We find that despite short-term fluctuations, partisanship or non-cooperation in the U.S. Congress has been increasing exponentially for over 60 years with no sign of abating or reversing. Yet, a group of representatives continue to cooperate across party lines despite growing partisanship."
