I'm eagerly anticipating the uproar about "stealing" energy. While close-range induction may indeed add to the load, I don't see how collecting stray transmitted energy would create more of a load in the transmitter. Have you heard of commercial broadcasters complaining about too many listeners*? Me neither.

*listeners = receivers...

I'm counting on this.
 
Do you think a lifetime of reading can help you stay sharp when you’re older?

Isn't chemistry beautiful?
 
Happy #independenceday

The chemistry of 4th July fireworks. I think a couple of these might be mislabeled. The fact remains that the science of fireworks is incredibly complex, and really freaking awesome!

Sodium produces yellow/gold colors. Barium creates green, copper compounds produce blue, strontium salts give you red and titanium metals give you silver colored sparks. 

Other commonly used chemicals are carbon which provides the fuel, oxidizers which produce oxygen for burning, magnesium which increases the overall brilliance and brightness, antimony that gives you a "glitter" effect and calcium which deepens the colors.

h/t to IFLS for the great pic!

Great discussion of science. Reminds me of recent discussion started by +Randall Lee Reetz regarding science and G+.

All measurements aren't of equal value. Abstracting reality is a compression problem. Is the compression problem. Science is the n-hard iterative problem. Science edges in on the same solution evolution edges in on… the shortest path to hear death. Which is of course identical to "what matters".

Some useful advice for cloud-based app design.
 
Ben Kamens from +Khan Academy (which uses App Engine) walks through some useful App Engine design guidelines.  Don't miss the link to Ben's mini-profiler (http://bjk5.com/post/6944602865/google-app-engine-mini-profiler ).

Language is a living organism, with words being repurposed and seemingly modern coinages following tried and true patterns - meaning that the very save expression/word may have existed before.
 
If your love of Sherlock, Doctor Who, or, indeed, any cultural phenomenon crosses the borderline between admiration and fanaticism, then chances are you’ve been labelled a fanboy or fangirl. They are simple compounds from the words fan and boy or girl, but predate Benedict Cumberbatch and Matt Smith by some decades. #fanboy #fangirl #language #words

Reminds me of a particular Green Day song. And I don't even like them.

I'm struggling to accept that this screenshot is genuine. If it is, then nothing surprises me anymore.

Interesting breakthrough. I expect the dental industry to resist adoption and/or make it prohibitively expensive.
 
Grow a tooth? : Stem-Cell Dental Implants Grow New Teeth Right In Your Mouth. The loss of a tooth is a minor deformity and a major pain. Although dental implants are available, the healing process can take months on end, and implants that fail to align with the ever-growing jawbone tend to fall out. If only adult teeth could be regenerated, right?

Dr. Jeremy Mao, the Edward V. Zegarelli Professor of Dental Medicine at Columbia University Medical Center, has unveiled a growth factor-infused, three-dimensional scaffold with the potential to regenerate an anatomically correct tooth in just nine weeks from implantation. By using a procedure developed in the university's Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine Laboratory, Dr. Mao can direct the body's own stem cells toward the scaffold, which is made of natural materials. Once the stem cells have colonized the scaffold, a tooth can grow in the socket and then merge with the surrounding tissue.

I hope they hurry up with this one.  I might need it in a couple years.

"Bare Paint" pen lets you create a circuit on paper

The makers of Bare Paint claim their product is the world’s first non-toxic, electrically conductive paint available, making it a perfect tool for educational projects such as touch-sensitive paper drawings that can create sounds or turn on LED lights.

"We generally split applications into two simple classifications, signaling and powering," they said. “Signaling could include using the Paint as a potentiometer while interfacing with a micro-controller, as a conduit in a larger circuit or as a capacitive sensor. Powering a device would include lighting LED’s or driving small speakers. The most interesting stuff happens when you combine these properties into something new."

Story
Tagline
Marketer, linguist, and developer
Introduction
I have sixteen years of experience in international marketing, including more than five years dedicated to international product marketing in the consumer and medical device industries. My advice: Buy time, and test, test, test.

Academically, I'm a linguist, with strong focus on language analysis. My thesis compared the language use in UK and US court opinions.

I'm a voracious reader, with broad interests from science to sociology to anthropology.
Bragging rights
Grew gross global revenues by 20% YOY during a recession. This was a turnaround from about 3 years of market implosion.
Education
  • Albert Ludwigs University of Freiburg
    MA Linguistics, 2005
Love the ultimate veggie wrap. Actually, it's hard to find something to dislike here. Great breakfast burritos, too. Maintaining a ski village atmosphere, it's a great place to go for a quick lunch.

Authentic food and a great selection of hard to find German groceries. My favorite lunch spot.

Want genuine Italian pizza? Look no further. The pizza here is very much like what you'll find in northern Italy. I'll definitely be back. I first discovered Il Vicino in Albuquerque, where it started. I'm glad to discover that it's now in Colorado as well!

The food was generally great. Was slightly disappointed by the spring rolls, but otherwise highly recommend it.
