Snapchat CEO to #blogging community: We believe mass-media, "who’s smarter than us, [should] figure out what’s important" news for us. Oh.

"It is more online magazine than social media platform and is intended to feed Snapchat’s young audience a daily flow of content from major media companies...". My thoughts exactly. I like the shiny interface, but it's a slap in the face to the democratization of media that has been the single biggest driving force in information sharing in the last decade.
 
Snapchat wants you to engage beyond self-destructing selfies so they launched Discover

Self-destructing messenger Snapchat has launched Discover, a new tab within its mobile app that will give users access to long-form articles and video cultivated by Snapchat’s new editorial team.

It is more online magazine than social media platform and is intended to feed Snapchat’s young audience a daily flow of content from major media companies: Comedy Central, Food Network, CNN, National Geographic, Vice, Yahoo, and Warner Music Group.

Of course, in keeping with Snapchat’s the ephemeral nature, Discover resets itself daily. That fact is made clear by channels’ messaging at the end of their content: come back tomorrow.

I don't see this as cheating. One of the things I don't like about Clan Wars is that each player can attack only twice. Our clan's really active players can't do as much as they want to help win. This is actually a solution that let's people be as active in clan wars as they want.

+Clash of Clans Attacks  I should probably walk away from this trolling, but let me try anyway. Here goes: I learned about sandboxing today from watching this video. I had an opinion about it. I commented on the video. You saw the comment and assumed that I had been sandboxing. I haven't. But I wouldn't get mad at other people if they did. I think it's not a cheat if people do. Actually, I'd like Supercell to update CoC so that this becomes part of the game, but so that in sandbox mode you still can't detect the hidden defense buildings. Are we clear?

Instead of a big open field, which has been suggested in some forums, clans should be able to build a clan city together. Clan elders can collaboratively build a village up from zero. The buildings can look slightly different from the regular village buildings and have slightly different properties. Clan members donate gold, elix, troops and gems to build the city. There are no barracks to train troops, which must be donated by clan members. Keep the attack concept and the troop donation the same as is suggested in this forum.

Clan members can buy gems to donate to the city, or to make resources or troops to donate to the city.

This would let Supercell make money and give it a ton more options for development than if clan wars were just a big open space where people dropped the existing troop units.

A big open space with only troops will create one main problem. There is no opportunity for game development. Players donate troops. That's it. It'd be like the arena fights in Castle Crash, which get pretty boring quickly. Clan Wars, instead, should give you the opportunity to build. After all, that's the compulsive factor that has made the game so popular in the first place.

This is the first kickstarter I might fund.
 
Nice one.
I never liked watching bee keepers smoke the bees.

With this brilliant invention by Stuart and Cedar Anderson, a father-and-son beekeeper team in Australia, honey bees around the world can breathe a collective sigh of relief. Their Flow Hive invention allows beekeepers to harvest honey from their hives without disturbing the bees inside.

This is fascinating technology, which certainly saves on bee casualties, but also depends on bee population control. It could not work without a queen excluder, as there would be no way of seeing into the center of frames to check for larva, and a queen excluder means keeping the larva in the nest box, which means limiting population which means a limited harvest, and the bees having a more dificult time self-regulating and adapting to climactic and other factor. If you can double your' nest and population, you sextuple your harvest. Isolating the nest also makes them more prone to colony colapse. In a predictable place with a predictable climate and with lots of experience, this technique could seem utopian. I wish I knew where there was still one of those climates. perhaps Australia.

Religious scholar Reza Aslan gives the kind of level-headed answers you wish you'd be able to give in the same situation. Nailed it.
 
CNN asks Reza Aslan a dumb question... and he crushes them with facts.
Religious scholar Reza Aslan took some serious issue on CNN Monday night with Bill Maher‘s commentary about Islamic violence and oppression. Maher ended his show last Friday by going after liberals for being silent about the violence and oppression that goes on in Muslim nations. Aslan said on CNN that Maher’s arguments are just very unsophisticated.

He said these “facile arguments” might sound good, but not all Muslim nations are the same. Aslan explained that female mutilation is an African problem, not a Muslim one, and there are Muslim-majority nations where women are treated better and there are even female leaders.

There was a notice for our apartments today for residents to move their cars because they were gong to try to clear the snow from the parking lot. A few minutes later they announced "Never mind. There's too much snow." Nobody can even back up on the parking lot now. 73cm of snow has fallen in the last couple days.

Some days nature just declares a no-car day.
