Wonderful article. This really resonated with me.

Key takeaway: "FaceReader, being a piece of software and therefore immune to gender bias, proved to be the great equalizer: It detected RBF in male and female faces in equal measure. Which means that the idea of RBF as a predominantly female phenomenon has little to do with facial physiology and more to do with social norms."

Do people always think you're mad when you're not? Researchers think they've pinpointed the problem.

The examples shown don't say "RBF" to me at all. Kanye just look tired to me. Of course, I am not good at reading expressions. 

My neutral expression tends to evoke "are you tired?" from people (whether or not I'm actually tired). I must have TSF: Tired Sleepy Face.

Great article on dreams of the dying.

<quote> “The huge challenge of this work is to help patients feel more normal and less alone during this unusual experience of dying,” he said. “The more we can articulate that people do have vivid dreams and visions, the more we can be helpful.”

Other research suggests that dreams seem to express emotions that have been building. Tore Nielsen, a dream neuroscience researcher and director of the Dream and Nightmare Laboratory, at the University of Montreal, surmised that at the end of life, such a need becomes more insistent. Troubled dreams erupt with excessive energy. But positive dreams can serve a similar purpose.

“The motivation and pressure for these dreams is coming from a place of fear and uncertainty,” he said. “The dreamers are literally helping themselves out of a tough spot.”

In the weeks and days before death, the dreams of the patients in the study tended to occur with greater frequency, populated with the dead rather than the living...

“Often when we sedate them, we are sterilizing them from their own dying process,” he said. “I have done it, and it feels horrible. They’ll say, ‘You robbed me — I was with my wife.’” </quote>

"This coloring book is split into two sections: Coloring and Creating. The first offers your basic color-in-the-lines patterns, but they’re all math based and come with a short description to help you appreciate what you’re beautifying. The second Creating section includes simple instructions on how to create patterns, mostly through randomness, such as Coin Hex, which asks you to choose for your hexagon pattern only two colors (but I chose three). Then you must toss a coin (or number generator in my case) to determine the color for each hexagon. The point of an activity like this? Even though your colored pattern is random, 'stare at it and you will see patterns. It’s a reminder that we find randomness very difficult to comprehend.' Very difficult indeed. I'm only one-quarter of the way through Coin Hex and already I see all kinds of patterns popping out of the page."
See sample pages from this book at Wink. I’ve already reviewed a few adult coloring books for Wink and thought I had moved on, but then Patterns of the Universe came my way and I couldn’t resist. W…

I shamelessly ordered this one for myself at Amazon already; it was just $10! I do mostly mandalas and patterns, so this looks totally perfect for me.
I spent much of my childhood making Spirographs!!!

"If the baseline platform for a quality educational VR experience is pegged to the high end of the market, that creates a distinct advantage for well-funded schools, exactly the opposite of the vision of VR bringing previously unaffordable educational experiences to all. Access to computing technology for low-income schools has been one of the major battles in the past few decades of education. To see the snooze button get punched on that fight would be incredibly frustrating.

"This could, however, be an opportunity for headset makers and other platform holders. Even if educational VR does end up on the high end of the market initially, it would be wise for the makers of the hardware to consider taking losses in order to distribute gear into the schools and classrooms where it can make the most impact."

"This scene occurs after the guy's boss tells him to buy a car instead of riding his bike.", according to +Jym Dyer, who also told me it's from the movie Maryada Ramanna, available on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhmOT3FiYag&feature=youtu.be

Based on this one excellent scene, I'm probably going to check this movie out. :)
