Sounds like a great program. I need to start a non-profit...
 
+World Wildlife Fund's Sabita Malla is exploring how Google Glass can help protect vulnerable rhinos in Nepal. Are you a nonprofit with an idea for how to amplify your impact with Glass? Submit your idea by 5/20 at g.co/givingthroughglass

Individuals who work at US-based nonprofits are eligible to receive a pair of Glass, a trip to a Google office for training, a $25,000 nonprofit grant, and access to developers to make your Glass project a reality.

Just as Neil deGrasse Tyson said in Cosmos scientists are not afraid to be wrong or admit that they don’t know. As Isaac Asimov once said, "The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!', but 'That's funny ..." Many of us love NASA so much because they constantly work on the frontier of knowledge and ignorance. NASA constantly surprises us by discovering new worlds or landing on a moon of another planet whose distance is unfathomable, even though it’s still within our own Solar System.

Cosmos is an excellent example of how science is more than just data and facts, but often can be poetic. It’s a reason to fight hard and show your support for investments in science. NASA is one such investment. Tell Congress you want them to increase NASA's budget. Take action today: http://www.penny4nasa.org/take-action/

When you give animals human clothes, they start making horror movies.

I got my beta Gmail account 6/19/04.  I've been loving it ever since.
It wasn't the first, but since day one, Gmail has always been the best email service

Ok that's impressive.
 
Forget USBs - these ‘post-it notes’ transfer files just by sticking them on to a computer....

Transferring data onto your computer could soon be a simple as using a post-it note.

Scientists have invented data storage devices that look like the sticky labels, and transfer files simply by being stuck onto the front of a computer, or other device.

The tiny, paper-thin drives called Datastickies are stacked one on top of another, like real post-it notes, and are then peeled off as and when they're needed.

The user then sticks them to the front of their computer, TV, smartphone or tablet to transfer data via a special adhesive.

Datastickies are made from graphene - a super-strong, conductive material made of a single layer of carbon atoms - and will be sold in a range of different sizes up to 32GB.

The special adhesive used to stick the devices together, and to electronic devices, is conductive.

It is a 'special low-tack, pressure-sensitive adhesive' capable of being reused without leaving marks like a stick note, explained the designers.

The technology is still being developed, but its hoped they will one day replace popular USB drives. Datastickies' design was the brainchild of designer Aditi Singh and university professor Parag Anand, both from New Delhi, India. 

Singh said: 'Datastickies are a design concept for graphene-based flash drives that may replace USB data drives in the future.

'USB-based drives can be inconvenient to use as the positioning and insertion of the drive in the USB slot needs to be done precisely.
