5-min Stated Clearly video describing how DNA acts as blueprint for a living thing. A real-time simulation from PBS: From DNA to Protein.

The DNA that holds the design for a human is like a very clever, one-billion word book:

There are 23 chapters, called chromosomes.
Each chapter contains several thousand stories, called genes [the protien recipes].
Each story is made of paragraphs, called exons, which are interrupted by advertisements called introns.
Each paragraph is made of words, called codons.
Each word is written in letters called bases.

From "Genome" by Matt Ridley, a great book that tells stories of the human genome, one chapter for each chromosome. While doing so, he describes self-interest, history, memory, fate, gender wars, and other aspects of humanity in a way that is brilliantly accessible and often delightfully humorous.

Thank you +Ashley Wilson.

This movie shows the sense in which Julia sets are self-similar.   The Julia set for a number z is the set of complex numbers that you can hit over and over with the function

f(x) = x^2 + z

and get a sequence of numbers that remains bounded.  By definition, the Julia set gets mapped to itself by this function f. 

In this movie, when it's not wiggling around, the black stuff is the Julia set for a number z equal to roughly 0.8 + 0.2 i.  But it's animated: at time t, we see what happens when you take the Julia set and apply the function

f(x,t) = x^{2^t} + tz. 

When t = 0 this function does nothing.  By the time t = 1, this function equals

f(x) = x^2 + z

so it maps the Julia set into itself.  And then the animation loops around!

Anders Kaseorg put this animated gif on Quora:

http://www.quora.com/Fractals/Why-are-Julia-sets-fractals

but I don't know where he got it.  And by the way, what I'm calling the Julia set for the number z is technically called the filled Julia set for the function f(x) = x^2 + z.  For more definitions and pictures, see:

Introduction
I'm pretty lame. My time is spent playing video games, reading books or watching movies. I can't spell or sing. I do enjoy art  and from time to time indulge myself in painting or drawing.

After taking my dog to my amazing vet I was told that my dog needed to go to the ER and she suggested I take her to Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Center of New Mexico for prompt treatment. First contact I had with the staff at Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Center of New Mexico was over the phone. I called to get a price quote on what the treatment might run me so I will be ready when I got there. The staff on the phone was extremely helpful and considerate the stress I was under at the time I call. Because of the help she gave me over the phone I was able to get everything in order I was going to need to support my dog financially and made the overall visit less stressful. When I got to the ER it was already almost 8pm. My dog was not in a life treating situation but he was in pain still the staff reacted right away. They keep me up to date with all action that would be take to help my pet and what actions might need to be taken and how he was holding up. In the end he came out of the whole experience feeling much better. While I waited a few real bad emergency’s came in and the care I saw the staff give the animal and there support they offered their human counterparts showed the true goodness of humanity.

My family and I recently moved to the Rio Rancho. We have a menagerie of pets with two dogs and three cats. Recently my dog who I have had about thirteen years got a bad case of paraphimosis, Dr. Cressy gave my pup an examination and recommended I take him to the animal ER right away. I followed her instructions and he recovered great. When I called her the next day to set up a follow-up appointment right away my dog was remembered and asked about how he was doing and if everything was ok. The true care that Dr. Cressy and her staff have for animals is easily seen. She has also treated our younger dog and a kitten for minor illnesses.
