New BEARDFIST track up. This time, we've created a theme song for the excellent android game Mechadroids, by Rogue Vector (www.roguevector.com). The song was created as a wedding gift for one of the Rogue Vector developers.

The game can be found at http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=uk.co.deadworldstudios.mechadroids&hl=en

A Rufus Wainwright cover we did to warm up when BEARDFIST increased in size from 2 to 4 members. First BEARDFIST track with a real bass.

Excellent article on Ars Technica on digital steganography

WiBit is a learning resource for C, Objective-C, Java, C++ and object oriented programming in general. Lessons are in the form of video tutorials, presented by two tutors at a time in a conversational and podcastian manner.

It's excellent.

13 year old girl invents a cure for hiccups, currently looking for distributors.
 
Here's a story non-reported by The Week about the barely teenage girl who "invented a cure for hiccups." (I say non-reported because what passes for journalism here is swiping pieces of other people's journalism.) I use it because i illustrates something I find interesting about this story, which was covered by the New York Times, MSNBC, ABC and other venues. It certainly bears attention because of the feel-good nature of a bright middle-schooler doing something cool and extraordinary. I salute this enterprising whiz kid.

But while it is not unprecedented for a young person to start a company, I think the real news is that, according to these articles, she managed to "cure" hiccups, something that medical science hasn't really mastered. So you might think that any one of these venues might have actually questioned this claim instead of reporting it as fact and leaving it at that. Nope. No one adult reporter apparently even asked if there was any scientific evidence that her cure (sugar, apple cider vinegar and sucking on a lollipop) actually works better than a regular lollipop, blowing into a paper bag, taking actual medicines or simply waiting for hiccups to go away.

I wish young Ms. Keivman the best. I bet if she grows up to be a reporter, she'll do better than the professionals who put on blinders to make sure their stories kept to the sunny side.

Incredible set by Andrey Pavlov.
 
The photographs in this picture gallery may look like they been Photoshopped or assembled with dead insects, but the ants in these images are very much alive. Russian photographer Andrey Pavlov spends hours setting up fairytale scenes. He studied ants, and saw that they all follow a very specific path when they’re working. So he put his props on their trail, and photographed the insects interacting with his miniature 'stage sets'.

Pictures: ANDREY PAVLOV / CATERS NEWS

Found on telegraph.co.uk
(http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/culturepicturegalleries/9128153/The-fantasy-world-of-ants-photographs-by-Andrey-Pavlov.html)


Here are some statements taken from an interview with dailymail.co.uk

Mr Pavlov shot the images at an anthill just metres from his home in Moscow, Russia.

The snapper explained: 'For the last seven years I have always had my camera with me, but it was only when I had children and started reading them fairytales that I realised it was something I never did as a child.

That's when I decided to make up for it and start creating some fairytales of my own.

I used to work in theatre which was a big help when it came to making props, and I chose ants because I respect them and their way of life.

They care about their children and look after the elderly. They have lived for millions of years.

I take my inspiration from humans but luckily for me ants are quite inquisitive, which seems to make them very willing participants.

Update
I just found his profile on depositphotos.com! You can contact Andrey and buy his photos on http://depositphotos.com/user-1000145/Andrey-Pavlov.html
