We are skeptics who have devoted much of our careers to practicing and promoting scientific skepticism. We ask that journalists use more care when reporting on those who reject climate science, and hold to the principles of truth in labeling. Please stop using the word “skeptic” to describe deniers.
Public discussion of scientific topics such as global warming is confused by misuse of the term skeptic.

The UN will help the call for a bright future for people and planet this Saturday at 8.30pm local time by switching off the lights for Earth Hour at the iconic UN Headquarters building in New York.

The global initiative unites hundreds of millions of people, communities, companies and governments around the world to turn off their lights for one hour in a symbolic show of support for climate and sustainability action and for providing clean energy to the more than one billion people who lack access to electricity today.

All UN staff members around the world have also been encouraged to
take part both in their office and at home.

Learn how you, and your friends and family can participate in Earth Hour at: www.earthhour.org

It sounds delicious!  If we're more aware of our sense while we are eating then we might slow down enough to not overeat.  Conversely, sound can make "less tasty", but healthy foods easier to eat.
----------------
But why is the way food sounds important to us? For one, Spence says it could be that sound is an indicator for texture and therefore quality. Texture can reveal how fresh food is. If an apple cracks crisply when it’s bitten into, instead of yielding without a snap, you know that’s a good sign.

Outside sound can also influence perception, and it doesn’t require much effort. “If I’m having Italian food and I’m hearing music of that region, it may make me perceive the food as more authentic,” he says. Even the ice cream company Häagen-Dazs launched an app where customers can scan their ice cream carton and listen to a violin concerto timed to allow the ice cream to soften.
What your food 'sounds' like affects how good it tastes, a new study says

I think they make more noise AFTER you ate them as in the form of gaseous noises.

it is estimated that 95% of our food is directly or indirectly produced on our ‪#‎soils‬. Healthy soils supply the essential nutrients, water, oxygen and root support that our food-producing plants need to grow and flourish: http://bit.ly/1FMbgH1 ‪#‎IYS2015‬

I think that these kinds of graphics are usually target a general audience which tend to have an education level that is below high school (which what some government websites aim to do).  As far as soil production, I'd say that you still need to find the right materials to create soil since you cannot magically pull it from your butt or unless your a soil miracle worker :))  Maybe Dirt! The Movie was a dirty lie.

I hate it when someone else cause me to have a bad day so it's better to blow off some steam than build it inside you.

I like this song.  I just saw this video today and it's obvious a take on the Robert Palmer music video "Addicted to Love".

I can see this in a dentist's office.  Or maybe a drag race after hour in a start-up.
 
Honda’s UNI-CUB prototype takes balance control technology to the next level with optimized wheel shapes and higher-precision control of drive power and posture stabilization. Riders can look forward to enjoying the UNI-CUB in future workspace environments with this new technology. For more information, visit: http://awe.sm/cLmpt

Thought for the day:

Just because a food product is labeled "non-GMO" does not means that it is a healthy food.

It's finally portable enough to be used as a replacement for your standard fire extinguisher.

---------------

Seth Robertson and Viet Tran, engineering students of George Mason University, have a new explanation of how to put out a fire and they build their very own practical peace of fire-fighting technology.

Their new fire-fighting solution works with sound waves, to speak English, by pushing low frequency sound waves “30 to 60 hertz range” to the flames you can separate the oxygen from the fuel.

---------------

In 1857, Irish scientist John Tyndall recognized that sound waves could extinguish flames. Now, scientists hope that phenomena could lead to the development of new fire extinguishers that would be useful, say, in a spacecraft or terrestrially to avoid water damage from sprinklers.

If you know then you may be able to prevent someone from being paralyzed for life.
 
About every 40 seconds someone suffers from stroke in the U.S. That’s about 795,000 strokes per year. Don’t become a statistic. Learn the risks. http://spr.ly/6266NJfu
