At The Intersection of Math and Art. "In the late 19th and early 20th centuries a niche industry developed in Germany to develop, build, and sell models of various geometric shapes in these new geometries." http://www.3quarksdaily.com/3quarksdaily/2015/03/people-are-tightly-bound-by-the-limits-of-their-intuition-even-if-we-intellectually-grasp-an-idea-we-often-struggle-to-comp.html
by Jonathan Kujawa Human beings are tightly bound by the limits of our intuition and imagination. Even if we grasp an idea on an intellectual level, we often struggle to internalize it to the point where it becomes a native...

Mesmerizing Molten Glass Paintings by Etsuko Ichikawa. "Ichikawa removes fiery, molten glass from a kiln as it glows at 2100° F, and then manipulates it over thick paper, leaving scorch marks and burns. The process is something akin to photography, in which light is recorded on film, capturing and eternalizing the immediacy of a moment." http://www.spoon-tamago.com/2015/03/30/mesmerizing-molten-glass-paintings-by-etsuko-ichikawa/ 
Etsuko Ichikawa is a Tokyo-born, Seattle-based artist who creates mesmerizing abstract "paintings" through the art of pyrography. Specifically, Ichikawa removes fiery, molten glass from a kiln as it glows at 2100° F, and then manipulates it over thick paper, leaving scorch marks and b

Custom Glass Planets Containing the Cremated Remains of Loved Ones http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2015/03/custom-glass-planets-containing-the-cremated-remains-of-loved-ones/ 
Merry Coor produces ethereal designs from cremated remains within custom glass beads. Coor crafts each bead by hand, first melting glass into a round bead, then spiraling the design out of ashes on top, and finally sealing the design with an outer layer of clear glass. For e

Is the MagSafe Power Adapter Safer Than USB-C? How difficult is it to pull a MagSafe plug out of a MacBook?  What about a USB?  Will the USB-C power be dangerous for your laptop? http://www.wired.com/2015/03/magsafe-power-adapter-safer-usb-c/ 
The new Apple MacBook charges with a USB-C cable instead of the magnetic MagSafe power cord. How much safer is the MagSafe?

You know, I am kind of fed up with the MagSafe. 

1. Don't talk to me about safety since almost every MS Power Supply I have had has developed frayed cords -- one to the point of sparking on me.

2. The Gen 2 MagSafe connector is WAY, WAY too loose. Frankly, a bit of friction contact would be nice.

Story

Science writer, cocktail physics
Introduction
I'm a science writer, author of several popular science books for general readers. I also have my own blog at Scientific American, Cocktail Party Physics. Most recent books: "Me, Myself and Why: Searching for the Science of Self," coming out January 28, 2014, and "The Calculus Diaries: How Math Can Help You Lose Weight, Win in Vegas, and Survive a Zombie Apocalypse" (2010).
Bragging rights
Married to +Sean Carroll (affectionately known as the Time Lord). Black belt in jujitsu (although I no longer practice). Ran a program for two years matching scientists with writers, producers and directors in Hollywood, for the National Academy of Sciences. Dedicated to stamping out the notion of "two cultures": science is as much a part of creative human endeavor as the arts. I make a mean pad thai. Also orange/cranberry scones. Quite possibly first and only person to utter the phrase "negative index of refraction" on late-night TV (Craig Ferguson).
