The Venezuelan people is presently fighting back against the oppressive (and utterly incompetent) dictatorship. The repression is getting worse every day, as the regime tries to quell the massive protests.
 
 VENEZUELA UPDATE

Today citizens of Venezuela supporting the opposition started to block their streets with barricades to protect their families.  They do this avoid the Government paid thugs and the Cuban infiltrated within the National Guard from coming into their communities and destroying and killing people.
Today I counted 4 people dead on the protests. All were from the opposition.
These people killed were unarmed. 
Meanwhile the president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro called the motorcycled armed thugs to come to the main palace in Caracas to show that they support peace. At the event, he danced Salsa while innocents were being killed in different cities around the country. Here is an image that shows how the infiltrated Cuban regime is killing and abusing peaceful protesters. 

HOW CAN YOU HELP? You can sign this petition asking for help in Venezuela.

You can also write a letter to the White House or the by contacting Congress.

Thank you.

Police firing live rounds at student protesters in Venezuela. Massive protests country-wide enter their 4th day, while all medias are controlled by the government and online services such as Twitter are blocked.

The video is definitely worth watching for a good summary of Hawking's latest paper.

Forget fusion power, buttered cats are the future!
 

Buttered Cat Paradox

The buttered cat paradox is a common joke based on the tongue-in-cheek combination of two adages:

Cats always land on their feet.
Buttered toast always lands buttered side down.

The paradox arises when one considers what would happen if one attached a piece of buttered toast (butter side up) to the back of a cat, then dropped the cat from a large height. Some people jokingly maintain that the experiment will produce an anti-gravity effect. The faux paradox has captured the imagination of science-oriented humorists.

The idea appeared on the British panel game QI, where the idea was discussed. As well as talking about the idea, they also brought up other questions regarding the paradox. These included "Would it still work if you used margarine?", "Would it still work if you used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter?", and "What if the toast was covered in something that was not butter, but the cat thought it was butter?", the idea being that it would act like a placebo. The paradox also appeared in the episode "Gravitational Anarchy" of the scientific podcast RadioLab.

Brazilian energy drink brand Flying Horse has released a commercial that simulates the recreation of this phenomenon, which is then used to create perpetual energy. I used the commercial to make the gif. below.

Very interesting, there's some elegance in brute force physics, may it be just turbulence or the evolution of the universe.
 
The Millennium Simulation Project

The Millennium Run used more than 10 billion particles to trace the evolution of the matter distribution in a cubic region of the Universe over 2 billion light-years on a side. It kept busy the principal supercomputer at the Max Planck Society's Supercomputing Centre in Garching, Germany for more than a month. By applying sophisticated modelling techniques to the 25 Tbytes of stored output, Virgo scientists have been able to recreate evolutionary histories both for the 20 million or so galaxies which populate this enormous volume and for the supermassive black holes which occasionally power quasars at their hearts. By comparing such simulated data to large observational surveys, one can clarify the physical processes underlying the buildup of real galaxies and black holes.
