The sound of the Middle Ages: New bells for Paris' Notre Dame Cathedral

Nine newly cast bells are to be installed at Notre Dame, the historic Paris cathedral whose towers were made famous by the fictional hunchbacked bell-ringer Quasimodo. The giant bronze bells, commissioned as part of the cathedral's 850th birthday celebrations, will replace the current bells, whose chimes are notoriously discordant.

Vehicle free streets: they make city life easier and more enjoyable.  New York City should consider doing this to an avenue or two permanently.

Q: What would happen if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90% the speed of light?

+Randall Munroe of xkcd has launched a new series called "What if?". You'll not want to miss his answers to off the wall scientific questions from curious readers. As a baseball fan, I am pleased to see this was the first entry. Smart cartoonists are incredible.

Presenting a Governor's School John Cage concert tonight featuring Radio Music, 44 Harmonies, 4'33", Living Room Music, Imaginary Landscape No. 1, and Sculpture Musicales.  Very exciting.

I can describe Mitt Romney’s tax policy promises in two words: mathematically impossible.

Is this really surprising? The man believes in magic underpants.  Of course he would promise the impossible.

This is what happens to your body within one hour of drinking a can of soda.

10 minutes: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system, which is 100 percent of your recommended daily intake. You'd normally vomit from such an intake, but the phosphoric acid cuts the flavor.

20 minutes: Your blood sugar skyrockets. Your pancreas attempts to maximize insulin production in order to turn high levels of sugar into fat.

40 minutes: As your body finishes absorbing the caffeine, your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, and your liver pumps more sugar into the bloodstream. Adenosine receptors in your brain are blocked preventing you from feeling how tired you may actually be.

45 minutes: Your body increases dopamine production, causing you to feel pleasure and adding to the addictiveness of the beverage. This physical neuro response works the same way as it would if we were consuming heroin.

60 minutes: The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestine, which boosts your metabolism a bit further. High doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners compound this effect, increasing the urinary excretion of calcium. The caffeine’s diuretic properties come into play. (You have to GO!) Your body will eliminate the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that was otherwise heading to your bones. And you will also flush out the sodium, electrolytes and water. Your body has eliminated the water that was in the soda. And in the process it was infused with nutrients and minerals your body would have otherwise used to hydrate your system or build body cells, bones, teeth.

The sugar crash begins. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You start feeling like crap. Time to grab another?
