Astronomers noticed something curious about the center of a galaxy 600 million light-years away. A central blast of radiation, a quasar, seemed to have an engine of bumper-sized proportions. Not one, but two black holes circling each other.

THE DEEPEST CAVE IN THE WORLD🌍
KRUBERA CAVE 
Krubera Cave is the deepest known cave on Earth. It is located in the Arabika Massif of the Gagra Range of the Western Caucasus, in the Gagra district of Abkhazia, a breakaway region of Georgia. The difference in elevation of the cave's entrance and its deepest explored point is 2,197 ± 20 metres (7,208 ± 66 ft). It became the deepest-known cave in the world in 2001 when the expedition of the Ukrainian Speleological Association reached a depth of 1,710 m (5,610 ft) which exceeded the depth of the previous deepest known cave, Lamprechtsofen, in the Austrian Alps, by 80 m. In 2004, for the first time in the history of speleology, the Ukrainian Speleological Association expedition reached a depth greater than 2,000 m, and explored the cave to −2,080 m (−6,824 ft). Ukrainian diver Gennadiy Samokhin extended the cave by diving in the terminal sump to 46 m depth in 2007 and then to 52 m in 2012, setting successive world records of 2,191 m and 2,197 m respectively.[2][3] Krubera remains the only known cave on Earth deeper than 2,000 metres.

"It's not a Weeping Angel, it's the Devil's Staircase" a.k.a. the Cantor Function. "When you’re looking at it, it just stays there, constant and still. But if you turn your back for just an instant at a point in the Cantor set, the function grows impossibly quickly." http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/roots-of-unity/2015/03/31/cantor-function-weeping-angels/

Decoding Trump-Mania: The Psychological Allure of Hating Political Correctness (Part II) http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/psysociety/decoding-trump-mania-part-2/
Fans of Donald Trump praise his dedication to unfiltered honesty. But what exactly is it about the idea of being "anti-PC" that appeals to so many people?

Good for profit

I have always thought the phrase Good for profit was a very smart pun. Is it a for-profit that is good? Is it an initiative that is good for profit? You get the gist. Today I get to weave it into a post that I suspect is very topical right now.

A lot of rage is spreading in tech companies about the Indiana Law on protection of religious freedom that is (ironically) deemed to be discriminatory towards LGBT and other groups. Quite a few companies seem to be announcing plans to decrease engagement with the state of Indiana based on their opposition to this law. Some are curtailing their investments, others are pulling out from their regular events. These actions are obviously based on their principles and sense of what is right and wrong. But if you take the definition of a corporation that we are taught in business schools, then its all about maximizing shareholder value.

Is opposing the Indiana law really helping Salesforce, Apple, Yelp etc’s bottomline? In general, regardless of your position on this specific law, should we incorporate our sense of right or wrong into product strategy and decision making?

I think these are very interesting questions. Back in Google, we would grapple with the moral implications of our product decisions at regular intervals. It is one of the few companies that codified this behavior into a motto — Don’t be evil (Well, one could argue that not being evil isn’t the same thing as proactive supporting the good. But I think the intent was to codify some sense of social wellness into product development). I remember countless arguments that were won on the basis of this motto. And for many of us, product development truly felt like a thoughtful, user centric endeavor because of this rule.

Being thoughtful about the implications of our actions, whether as individuals or as a society, is an important aspect of what makes us human. Corporations are a part of society and though maximizing shareholder value is their prime goal, I suspect doing so while ensuring they do no evil (or even better, taking a stance against bad laws) is equally key. And finally, it actually does make business sense. I suspect companies that do so, end up doing very well and having a significant impact on their bottomline. This topic is ripe for some real research that backs this theory (or disproves it) with real data.

In the meantime, let’s please do no evil.

Strangely, it's stay open only till 11:30 pm. The entry to this space is through the main door of the dilapidated Great Punjab restaurant at Linking Road. I They like to call themselves a “meeting room, not a bar”. Well, a beer room by any other name… Inside, there is an entire wall of see-through refrigerators revealing glistening beer pints from across the world, with corresponding glasses to match. Besides the Indian (Kingfisher, Tuborg) and ubiquitous international beers (Peroni, Miller, Stella, Asahi), Pint Room also stocks rarer brands like Murphy’s Irish stout, Super Bock, Viru Premium, Birra Moretti and Amstel Light. PRICE : Reasonable
