Ingress players around the world have helped the police solve crimes and has reportedly reduced the occurance of crimes in areas where there are portals. This isn't the first player we have known to have lost, but to be lost in such an act of violence.. We will be observing 5 minutes of silence in memory.
 
Today, Friday December 4th we will be observing an all comms, Five Minute Moment of Silence to honor the fallen agent @kojen who passed away after the San Bernardino Shooting. Please spread the word that both factions will be honoring his memory tomorrow by ceasing all activities beginning at eleven AM pacific, the time of the shootings occurred. Thank you all in advance for your support in honoring a fellow Ingress Agent.

I am glad to see that there is reform going on.  We can't leave it up to a government.  It isn't just our future, but our children's & grandchildren's futures.
 
Perhaps Singapore is well-positioned for revolutionary education system reforms

+John Romero Remember that discussion,what, 10 years ago now?
 
The brain does two things that are of particular importance to the present theory. First, the brain uses a method that most neuroscientists call attention. Lacking the resources to process everything at the same time, the brain focuses its processing on a very few items at any one time. Attention is a data-handling trick for deeply processing some information at the expense of most information. Second, the brain uses internal data to construct simplified, schematic models of objects and events in the world. Those models can be used to make predictions, try out simulations, and plan actions.
Science has failed to pinpoint the actual brain processes behind our awareness.

hey found that although brain size was highly heritable in both species, the organization of the cerebral cortex—especially in areas involved in higher-order cognition functions—was much less genetically controlled in humans than in chimps. One potential explanation for this difference, according to the researchers, is that because our brains are less developed than those of our primate cousins at birth, it creates a longer period during which we can be molded by our surroundings.

The brains of modern man are markedly smaller than those of our pre-farming ancestors. This has led to a countering line of thought that our modern brains must have evolved to be more "efficient". The alternative is that loss of volume or "shrinkage" seen in the modern human brain reflects a general loss of capacity, similar to the brain "shrinkage" well charted for domesticated animals. H. G. Wells (once again, ahead of his time... ;) ) ran with this concept and peopled his bleak future accordingly. Beautiful brainless, docile, and dumb. In short, they were completely domesticated.

New Beginnings.

FIRST sketch in a WEEK!
I was sick this whole past week and just could NOT draw at all. Even if I could get up and get in front of a page or a computer, nothing came out.
This is the very first sketch since last week... kind of super moody, but it probably has to do with the fact that I was just out for a while.

Our next meeting is next Wednesday June 10, 2015, at the Louisiana Technology Park featuring some great Enterprise DBA material!

Topic: Small Question/Big Answers

Detail:  The longest days in a DBA’s life start with small questions. Who has sysadmin in all of our databases? How big will our databases be next year? Which servers will be affected if we change the AD account password? If you’re a DBA in this shop and you have hundreds of databases, then your entire week just got really long. What you need is a way to organize your environment in such a way that you can get the answers easily and turn these into trivial questions. We’re going to show you how our new product Minion Enterprise lets you manage your environment in a way so that you get all of your time back. While Minion Enterprise can work wonders in your environment, we’re also going to discuss other ways to bring your shop under control.
 
Bio: Sean McCown is a Certified Master in SQL Server 2008 and a SQL Server MVP with 20 years of experience in databases. He is also founder and co-owner of the MidnightDBA.com website, where he records free SQL Server training videos and co-hosts the popular web show DBAs@Midnight.
 
The meeting will begin around 6pm, sponsorship is still available if your company is interested!
 
All of our meetings are open to the public, open to students, folks looking to get into the field and those looking to move up! Please spread the word and come prepared to learn and share your knowledge and experience!

Have to read the entire article. I have worked in robotic automated projects. They are more efficient and reduce human error on predictable repetitive tasks.

I was a gypsy in a former life, I work and play with computers in this one.  I work to help increase STEM awareness through various organizations. I am an avid MMO gamer.  I love AI and robotics, science fiction and fantasy, reading and movies and music and my children and my dog!  I also participate in the NaNoWriMo every year.  I write often, though I have yet to submit anything to be published.  

I make frequent posts on Science(Physics, Astrology, Neuroscience, Robotics, Geology, Environmental), Technology, Philosophy, Art, STEM, Intelligence, Writing, Higher Education and Ingress.  I try to put people in the right groups based on their profiles.  So let me know if there is a specific area of interest when adding me.
