Here's a public service item - they may speak a language that's somewhat comprehensible but their political identity can be rather intricate to parse out:
 
What's the Difference Between England, Britain and the U.K.? | Smart News | Smithsonian

' ... Understanding complex geopolitical dynamics may be hard, but that’s no excuse not to refer to countries by their proper names. Here’s a quick primer to help you sort out who’s who when it comes to the U.K.: ... '

Folks should hop on this
 
Today I learned... how hops might help the bees!
Colony Collapse Disorder is a real problem affecting bees around the world. But new research is showing that hops can help save the bees.

"From the beginning I had a sense of destiny, as though my life was assigned to me by fate and had to be fulfilled. This gave me an inner security, and, though I could never prove it to myself, it proved itself to me. I did not have this certainty, it had me. Nobody could rob me of the conviction that it was enjoined upon me to do what God wanted and not what I wanted.
That gave me the strength to go my own way. Often I had the feeling that in all decisive matters I was no longer among men, but was alone with God. And when I was "there," where I was no longer alone, I was outside time; I belonged to the centuries; and He who then gave answer was He who had always been, who had been before my birth. He who always is was there. These talks with the "Other" were my profoundest experiences: on the one hand a bloody struggle, on the other supreme ecstasy."

~Carl Jung; Memories, Dreams and Reflections; Page 48.

Cell phones will get still even better than the communicators depicted in Star Trek TV shows:
 
High-efficiency power amplifier could bring 5G cell phones

'A new highly efficient power amplifier for electronics could help make possible next-generation cell phones, low-cost collision-avoidance radar for cars and lightweight microsatellites for communications.

Fifth-generation, or 5G, mobile devices expected around 2019 will require improved power amplifiers operating at very high frequencies. The new phones will be designed to download and transmit data and videos faster than today's phones, provide better coverage, consume less power and meet the needs of an emerging "Internet of things" in which everyday objects have network connectivity, allowing them to send and receive data.'

[excerpt]
Daniel Nocera, a professor of energy science at Harvard who pioneered the use of artificial photosynthesis, says that he and his colleague Pamela Silver have devised a system that completes the process of making liquid fuel from sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water. And they’ve done it at an efficiency of 10 percent, using pure carbon dioxide—in other words, one-tenth of the energy in sunlight is captured and turned into fuel. That is much higher than natural photosynthesis, which converts about 1 percent of solar energy into the carbohydrates used by plants, and it could be a milestone in the shift away from fossil fuels. The new system is described in a new paper in Science.
A new system for making liquid fuel from sunlight, water, and air is a promising step for solar fuels.

Raspberry Pi's Matt Richardson saw this video at Google I/O yesterday, and it's got us all excited. It's a demo of a Raspberry Pi robot (Dexter Industries' GoPiGo) working with Google’s Cloud Vision API, and it has TONS of potential for your projects.

Story
Tagline
Experiments vindicating quantum physics indicate that consciousness is more fundamental than matter/energy. Now trying to figure out where all that leads to - the science/spiritual pursuit of the 21st century.
Introduction
Interested in esoteric subjects of any variety but especially alternative history and latest musings on nature of reality
Bragging rights
Cracked the code (as in how they relate and what they jointly say) of Sir Ridley Scott's three films: Alien, Blade Runner, Prometheus. I have 3 articles and a podcast on this subject.
