The UK already had Greyhound rescue well established over 30 years before it came to attention in the US with the "Greyhounds: Running for their Lives" documentary.

I had two rescue G-hounds in the past. I'd gladly have them again if I had the space for them.

Circle +Erica Erkkila for regular pics of her pups. :-)

Yeah. Originally the d12s were made of paper, to be cut, folded and glued into shape by the players.

G+ addiction, anyone?
 
These days the idea of process addictions is widely accepted.

Process addictions are addictions that involve a compulsive and/or an out of control #relationship with certain behaviors such as #gambling, #sex, #eating... and yes, even #money...

There is a change in brain chemistry with a process addiction that's similar to the mood altering effects of alcohol or drugs

With process addictions engaging in a certain activity, say viewing pornography, compulsive eating or an obsessive relationship with money, can kick start the release of brain/body chemicals, like #dopamine that actually produce a high that's similar to the chemical high of a drug.

The person who is addicted to some form of behavior has learned, albeit unconsciously, to manipulate his own brain chemistry.

Visualising Algorithms
by +Mike Bostock

If you haven't seen it elsewhere in this comprehensive article Mike Bostock explains the value of using our highly evolved visualisation skills to augment our intellect and evaluate and debug algorithms.  In doing so he delights the reader with numerous fascinating animations, code, images and so many related mathematical, visualisation and programming rabbit holes that it looks like Fibonacci's rabbits (http://goo.gl/bzyRI1) have been here.

Algorithms are a fascinating use case for visualization. To visualize an algorithm, we don’t merely fit data to a chart; there is no primary dataset. Instead there are logical rules that describe behavior. This may be why algorithm visualizations are so unusual, as designers experiment with novel forms to better communicate. This is reason enough to study them.

But algorithms are also a reminder that visualization is more than a tool for finding patterns in data. Visualization leverages the human visual system to augment human intellect: we can use it to better understand these important abstract processes, and perhaps other things, too.

Introduction
A Wyoming kid transplanted to America's Dairyland. I miss the mountains. I love real winter and snow; it's so clean, clear, and everything I'm allergic to is dead. By day I crunch numbers for research, by night I write or paint or play games or other fun stuff as time allows. 
My G+ goal: to share a few really good things every day --> Low volume but high signal. I tend to follow those who do the same.

In my spare time (ha!) I write blogs about the mathematics of games (Giant Battling Robots) and (sometimes) funny sciency-politicsy-stuff (Dread Tomato Addiction). I am Righteously Agnostic and a Skeptical Humanist.

The Multiverse is not the answer

Inflation tells us that it’s likely real, but can it be the answer to any of our scientific questions? Probably not.

We ate at the West Bay Diner twice while on vacation recently, and really enjoyed it. The atmosphere was great, and the food was excellent. The salad bar, though small, was well stocked, and it was a one of the reasons we went back a second time. Today I found myself wishing I could have another of their fresh baked cookies, and actually pondering the 7-hour drive to get some. Maybe next year!

"NOW is when you make progress", is something Jeremy often says to encourage us to push ourselves harder as we approach the end of a workout, but it's pretty good advice in general. I used to be in great shape, and I thought I knew what I was doing, but after rather half-heartedly trying to get back in shape for years I just wasn't having any success. My wife asked me to come along to visit her exercise boot camp for a charity workout, and I just joined up right away. This has really been the boost I needed to get moving again. I've relearned exercises and routines more appropriate to my age, gotten in with a high-energy group that I really enjoy, and I'm making the progress that I could not do by myself. So give it a try; NOW is always a good time. :-) A word about costs. If I wanted to do workouts like Jeremy's all on my own, I would probably need a gym membership, some regular time with a personal trainer, maybe a dietitian, and 3-4 hours of time out of my busy week. That adds up to quite a bit. Also, by getting fit I am saving myself a lot of potential health troubles (and bills!) down the road, and enjoying life more while I'm at it. Jeremy is a professional and very serious about helping people get fit, and I don't mind paying for his service. The way I see it, I'm getting a bargain.
