cuteoverload.com should start making some business deals.

From the abstract:
Performance indexed by the number of successful trials increased after viewing cute images (puppies and kittens; M ± SE = 43.9±10.3% improvement) more than after viewing images that were less cute (dogs and cats; 11.9±5.5% improvement).

I love how @mathbabe schools @natesilver over the free pass he gives to financial industry in his book. Her argument: their models actually worked; they meant to screw us.

Pretty clever way of determining the time of audio recordings by using fluctuations in the AC power grid:

"For the last seven years, at the Metropolitan Police forensic lab in south London, audio specialists have been continuously recording the sound of mains electricity.

Any digital recording made anywhere near an electrical power source, be it plug socket, light or pylon, will pick up this noise and it will be embedded throughout the audio.

Comparing the unique pattern of the frequencies on an audio recording with a database that has been logging these changes for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year provides a digital watermark: a date and time stamp on the recording."
