How would it be if a major factor in greenhouse gas pollution turned out to be the source of future fuel?

While this article may point to panic, the situation is not completely as bad as it seems. What could be seen as a weakness of open source software is also the strength that allowed this to be discovered and quickly remedied.

As always, the best advice is: change your passwords, use a responsible password manager (like Chrome, Apple Keychain, or LastPass) to allow you to have different passwords on different systems, and as much as possible, use dual-mode authentication systems when they are offered to you.

Maybe, much as the assassination of McKinley led to the creation of the Secret Service, this #security exposure will mark the decline of passwords as the sole mechanism for authentication.

Heartbleed is as bad as it is possible for a security flaw to be.

Oddly Google is on record saying no need to alter passwords. I have 2 step verification on important sites also.... I'm more fascinated about HeartBleed than personally concerned.

Name the spot.  Where was this photo taken? (No credit if you're over sixty and have seen an actual sporting event in this place -- Okay extra credit if that's true.)

The world is changing, getting smaller, and very probably more well-educated.  I know that is an irritant to some, but holds great hope for many of us. #education #inclusion #collaboration  
 
Why I Adore Khan Academy
Up until last week, I knew Khan Academy did YouTube videos, but I had no idea their entire website was one huge learning portal. Thanks to Ray at horriblebooks.com, I started poking around the website, then immediately got my son and myself an account there. 

Today, I got my Coach Report, with updates of all the things my son had done during the week. He had been learning Java from a book, but went crazy when he discovered how much he could learn about coding from the site. Today is Saturday, and the boy was on this morning, taking his Mastery Challenges before getting to his Minecraft for the day.

In the meantime, I've been re-learning how to factor polynomials and brushing up on my higher level math before the kids get there.

If you don't already know how awesome +Khan Academy is, I invite you to check it out. I'll be getting my daughter started on the site on Monday to supplement the Life of Fred I do with her. This is a fantastic resource for #homeschool !

Not just because of this -- I love math!

Wishing for this metabolism sometimes.  (The author's or the bird's.)
Our hummingbird feeders are draining quickly this week, with several birds taking turns at the feeder.  I hope this means one of the female hummingbirds is nesting nearby. The adults need to eat ev...

...the agonizing part about getting a Via Mia pizza is the time between when you get it and when you can put it in your mouth. The aroma assaults you even through the thick sides of the take-home box. When it's Via Mia night at our house, I always volunteer to drive, but I'm always in trouble when I arrive with pieces missing.

...my partner and I were far from home (Northern California is a long way from Maine, after all) but we were able to get a great haircut, and a wonderful style/cut from a very competent stylist. Nikki was friendly, professional, and very good with both of us. I had the feeling that we'd get the same great service from any of the hairdressers in Cliff's excellent salon. (Don't look too hard for Cliff, he's not there anymore though.) The price was very reasonable, and the service was great. I recommend it. ---v
