Not before time, one might say!

A warp drive to achieve faster-than-light travel may not be as unrealistic as once thought.

Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday to Italian educator Maria Montessori, whose approach to education is used in thousands of schools around the world today. Montessori schools emphasize independence, freedom, hands-on work (with materials such as those depicted in our doodle) and mixed-age classrooms. Plus, a fun fact: our founders, Larry and Sergey, both attended Montessori schools!

**You are a nerd if you know that the batman function is:**

"1.5*sqrt((‑abs(abs(x) - 1)) * abs(3 - abs(x))/((abs(x) - 1)*(3 - abs(x)))) * (1+abs(abs(x) - 3)/(abs(x)- 3)) * sqrt(1 - (x/7)^2)+(4.5+0.75 * (abs(x - 0.5)+abs(x+0.5)) - 2.75 * (abs(x-0.75)+abs(x+0.75))) * (1+abs(1 - abs(x))/(1 - abs(x))), (‑3)*sqrt(1 -(x/7)^2) * sqrt(abs(abs(x) - 4)/(abs(x)-4)), abs(x/2) - 0.0913722 * x^2-3+sqrt(1 - (abs(abs(x) - 2) - 1)^2), (2.71052+1.5 - 0.5 * abs(x) - 1.35526 * sqrt(4 - (abs(x) - 1)^2)) * sqrt(abs(abs(x) - 1)/(abs(x) - 1))"

Brilliant, isn’t it?

And look at this symmetry:

11 x 11 = 121

111 x 111 = 12321

1111 x 1111 = 1234321

111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321

Now, take a look at this…

101%

From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:

What Equals 100%?

What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

We have all been in situations where someone wants you to

GIVE OVER 100%.

How about ACHIEVING 101%?

What equals 100% in life?

Here’s a little mathematical formula that might help

answer these questions:

If:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Is represented as:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

If:

H-A-R-D-W-O- R- K

8+1+18+4+23+ 15+18+11 = 98%

And:

K-N-O-W-L-E- D-G-E

11+14+15+23+ 12+5+4+7+ 5 = 96%

But:

A-T-T-I-T-U- D-E

1+20+20+9+20+ 21+4+5 = 100%

THEN, look how far the love of God will take you:

L-O-V-E-O-F- G-O-D

12+15+22+5+15+ 6+7+15+4 = 101%

Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that:

*While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will

get you there, It’s the Love of God that will put you over the top!*

**Icicle of Death**

With timelapse cameras, specialists recorded salt water being excluded from the sea ice and sinking.

The temperature of this sinking brine, which was well below 0C, caused the water to freeze in an icy sheath around it.

Where the so-called "brinicle" met the sea bed, a web of ice formed that froze everything it touched, including sea urchins and starfish.

The unusual phenomenon was filmed for the first time by cameramen Hugh Miller and Doug Anderson for the BBC One series Frozen Planet.
