Think like a planet—and reorganize society to reflect it, says Case Western Reserve University’s environmental ethicist Jeremy Bendik-Keymer. That’s a new way of thinking about reversing the tide of climate change. “Don’t obsess over your individual actions: counting carbon emissions, changing light bulbs or even developing new technologies for personal use. The only international cure-all for climate change is societal, born of civic protest against the injustice we are visiting on future children,” Bendik-Keymer says.

"When Stuart Chaifetz, a father in Cherry Hill, N.J., was told his autistic son was acting uncharacteristically violent at school, he sent him to class wearing a hidden recording device that caught a teacher on tape bullying students. NBC's Jeff Rossen reports."

Although I'm not an uber math geek, I can appreciate the curious observation that the main function that describes prime numbers (the Riemann zeta function) also describes natural processes. Carl Sagan would have been delighted. =)

"We have found an unknown branch of the tree of life that lives in this lake. It is unique! So far we know of no other group of organisms that descend from closer to the roots of the tree of life than this species. It can be used as a telescope into the primordial micro-cosmos," says an enthusiastic associate professor, Kamran Shalchian-Tabrizi, head of the Microbial Evolution Research Group (MERG) at the University of Oslo.
Biologists all over the world have been eagerly awaiting the results of the genetic analysis of one of the world's smallest known species, hereafter called the protozoan, from a little lake 30 kil...

The Sierpinski triangle is one of my favorite fractal shapes, possibly because I figured out how to create it on my own by writing a BASIC program from scratch in 1985 to render it onscreen. Nowadays, one can order a model of the the 3D version -- the Sierpinski tetrahedron -- and print it out at home on their 3D printer!

Some interesting things happen when the 2D and 3D versions are extended to infinity (keeping the overall sizes the same): the surface area of the 2D reduces by 1/4 each iteration, eventually approaching zero. Similarly, the volume of the 3D version reduces to approach zero, but at the same time, the surface area of the Sierpinski tetrahedron stays constant. In other words, it becomes a solid object with a measurable surface area but with no volume!
A Sierpinski tetrahedron, the 3D version of the Sierpinski triangle, stage 5 I think. There are 4096 of the smallest tetrahedrons. The model has 499994 faces. Update: The edges are now almost 18 cm (7...

Atlanta-Based Professional UI Developer/Designer (HTML, CSS, PHP, JS, Photoshop)
Introduction
I'm a multi-faceted web developer/designer currently living in Atlanta. I was born and raised in Michigan, and from an early age was fascinated with the natural world around me. A strong aptitude in science combined with talents in writing led me to major in astronomy and liberal arts in college. After graduation, in what turned to be a quirky twist of fate after graduation, as a hobby I reverse engineered web sites and taught myself how to create sites from scratch. This led to my hiring as a entry-level developer shortly after -- 14 years later, I still find myself amazed that my career change from astronomy to web development still continues to  challenge and fulfill me.
