Short, but thought provoking piece on why "renewable energy" isn't good enough.

AMAZING TOOTHPICKS SCULPTURE

One man, 100,000 toothpicks, and 35 years: An incredible kinetic sculpture of San Francisco.

Thirty five years ago, artist Scott Weaver had already begun work on this insanely complex kinetic sculpture, Rolling through the Bay, that he continues to modify and expand even today.

The elaborate sculpture is comprised of multiple “tours” that move pingpong balls through neighborhoods, historical locations, and iconic symbols of San Francisco, all recreated with a little glue, some toothpicks, and an incredible amount of ingenuity.

He admits in the video that there are several toothpick sculptures even larger than his, but none has the unique kinetic components he’s constructed. Weaver estimates he’s spent over 3,000 hours on the project, and the toothpicks have been sourced from around the world.

You can find this amazing piece of art in the American Visionary Art Museum http://www.avam.org/

A Supercell Thunderstorm Cloud Over Montana

Is that a spaceship or a cloud? Although it may seem like an alien mothership, it's actually a impressive thunderstorm cloud called a supercell. Such colossal storm systems center on mesocyclones -- rotating updrafts that can span several kilometers and deliver torrential rain and high winds including tornadoes. Jagged sculptured clouds adorn the supercell's edge, while wind swept dust and rain dominate the center. A tree waits patiently in the foreground. The above supercell cloud was photographed in July 2010 west of Glasgow, Montana, USA, caused minor damage, and lasted several hours before moving on.

Linguists name 'occupy' as 2011's word of the year
Portland, Ore., USA

Sat Jan 7, 9:19 p.m. PST: Members of the American Dialect Society came out in record numbers to vote last night at the organization's annual conference.

+CNN reports that "Occupy" won a runoff vote by a whopping majority, earning more votes than "FOMO" (an acronym for "Fear of Missing Out," describing anxiety over being inundated by the information on social media) and "the 99%," (those held to be at a financial or political disadvantage to the top moneymakers, the one-percenters).

Occupy joins previous year's winners, "app," "tweet," and "bailout."
