The Large Hadron Collider has played host to a grand conceptual performance that combined opera, dance and physics. Watch the video.

Interesting pair of historical analysis on the last century. I've definitely put the Tooze book on my reading list (already has 5 hold requests at Berkeley Library :-). It looks like it has some interesting views on results of post WWI development and causes of WWII. Not sure the Grant book is so unique - From's Libertarian leanings showing a bit in that section - but might be worth a lower place on the list. 
Adam Tooze's study of the two world wars traces a new history of the 20th century.

Another reminder of the potential of fusion, real and imagined - we're only 20 years until it is ready to supply unlimited power, 10 if you are a defense contractor...
This week, Lockheed Martin supposedly managed to achieve a “breakthrough” in nuclear fusion that has gotten a lot of media attention. As Charles Seife points out, it did so “without having built a prototype device that, you know, fuses things on an appreciable scale. It’s a stunning assertion, even by...

Eventually the Repubs will have to suggest something (other than Keystone) and no.

Sunrise comes to SF Bay, as seen from Bay Trail. I really love this place...

Maybe Friday, tomorrow is early office hours (yesterday I dropped Nobue off at BART which gave me the excuse to go to the Marina). Little wet will be good to slosh around in..

Was a difficult task for the powers-that-be. The crowds were given the choice of packing the streets early Sunday morning to watch my promenade (is there a rolling version of that?)  or keep to a warm bed. Tough choice for most...

This slipped out accidentally while exploring picture slider options for the blogger site; so far the default one they offer is not what I want so I'll have to do a bit more techie stuff.

This mornings walk - around Lake Merritt, a very picturesque part of Oakland (and one with a ton of pictures from lots of others). It really is a gem that Oakland is rightly proud of
