"Developing tenderness towards yourself allows you to see both your problems and your potential accurately. You don't feel that you have to ignore your problems or exaggerate your potential. That kind of gentleness towards yourself and appreciation of yourself is very necessary. It provides the ground for helping yourself and others."

~ Chogyam Trungpa from: Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior

National Park Service at 100: The Prehistory of the Parks

There is no shortage of things to see in America’s national parks. Whether the view is of dappled Acadia or striated Zion, they all share one thing: somebody recognized that it was special enough to set aside for us all. First you have to see, and then you can save.

That’s worth keeping in mind on Aug. 25 as the U.S. National Park Service celebrates the 100th anniversary of the act that established it. The parks are celebrating with much fanfare: all 412 of them have free admission on the big day and throughout the following weekend. The Postal Service is issuing commemorative stamps to celebrate and the U.S. Mint is making special coins.

Yet America’s majestic national parks actually predate Woodrow Wilson’s signature 100 years ago. It was 1864 when the bill came across Abraham Lincoln’s desk to grant “Yo-Semite Valley” and the Mariposa Big Tree Grove to the State of California “for public use, resort, and recreation”—the first time in recorded history that a government had set aside land for public enjoyment rather than profit.

What’s the Difference Between Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning?

The easiest way to think of their relationship is to visualize them as concentric circles with AI — the idea that came first — the largest, then machine learning — which blossomed later, and finally deep learning — which is driving today’s AI explosion — fitting inside both.
AI, machine learning, and deep learning are terms that are often used interchangeably. But they are not the same things.

First study to explore language and LSD since the 1960s: New study shows LSD's effects on language

"Inducing a hyper-associative state may have implications for the enhancement of creativity," Family adds. "The increase in activation of semantic networks can lead distant or even subconscious thoughts and concepts to come to the surface."

er, no shit...
