Spectacular indeed!
 
Man Walks For Hours to Create Spectacular Snow Patterns

Artist Simon Beck must really love the cold weather! Along the frozen lakes of Savoie, France, he spends days plodding through the snow in raquettes (snowshoes), creating these sensational patterns of snow art. Working for 5-9 hours a day, each final piece is typically the size of three soccer fields! The geometric forms range in mathematical patterns and shapes that create stunning, sometimes 3D, designs when viewed from higher levels.

How long these magnificent geometric forms survive is completely dependent on the weather. Beck designs and redesigns the patterns as new snow falls, sometimes unable to finish a piece due to significant overnight accumulations. Interestingly enough, he said, The main reason for making them was because I can no longer run properly due to problems with my feet, so plodding about on level snow is the least painful way of getting exercise. Gradually, the reason has become photographing them, and I am considering buying a better camera.

Spectacular art for the sake of exercise!

Downton Abbey (the house) on Downton Abbey (the TV show) is played by Highclare Castle, the county seat of the Earl of Carnarvon. Over on the Paris Review site, Meredith Blake has a brief history of the family that currently lives there. Downton Abbey fans will note the striking parallels between Almina's life and that of her fictional counterpart, Lady Cora Crawley. This is hardly an accident: Lady Carnarvon and her husband, the eighth Earl of ...

I mean seriously. The original post over on @mbeisen's It is NOT junk blog drew out a Elsevier flack Tom Reller who had a thing or two to say about the Research Works Act being peddled by New York CongressCritter Carolyn Maloney. In that last linked comment, Mr. Reller claimed: When I say peer review process, I think you’re hearing just peer review. Peer review is exactly what you say it is, volunteer work in the name of academic science, and it ...

If Google search is starting to seem a little creepy in how much data it tracks about you or the ads it shows, give DuckDuckGo a try.

Seeing as how I found this post by accidentally searching Google for "google", I'd say it's Google that sucks big time now. I switched my Chrome default over to DuckDuckGo a couple weeks ago, and I'm really enjoying it. It's nice to have straightforward and clean search results (like the old Google) and the !bang syntax is useful. You can even "!g <keywords>" if you want to route your search through Google. (Also useful for getting image or map searches via !gi and !gm.)

Sophie Scott gives an excellent summary of the different ways people communicate, and how Twitter (etc.) fits right in.

Worth reading for the epic geek comments alone.
Too bad about those minor defects in workmanship, though.

"Sure I read the paper, but I, ahhhh, don't remember all the details."

This is actually pretty spot on.

Increasing funding for NIH is good for science and for jobs. What's not to like?

It's hard to argue against science in the abstract. Of course more knowledge is good! My sense on the human health front, however, is that the attention is focused on disease management rather than wellness and disease prevention. Two-thirds of all cancers are environmentally or behaviorally induced (half of them from smoking). Also, health care expenditures in the US are almost 20% of GDP, twice the level of other developed countries. The way we address human health is affecting the federal budget in a very big way, as well as the cost of doing business generally. The "generates jobs" meme is nutty. Hurricane Katrina generated jobs. The question is, is this the best way to use our resources and address human health.

Had the biggest cranberry orange scone we have ever seen. Delicious! The ordering process is slightly confusing the first time but it's well worth it.

Went for lunch/brunch on a Sunday. Service was timely and excellent. Food was delicious. Prices not cheap but very reasonable considering the quality. Nice selection of beers, including pints of British beverages such as Strongbow cider and Bombadier ale. Will definitely return!
