I posted this on my personal page but really want to make sure this gets the attention it deserves. Not my post, but the contemplation of death is something I have engaged in for several years now both in my daily life and my meditation practice. Through the lens of death life becomes clear.

When we are able to see beyond our own fear of the unknown, of other, the differences between Christianity, Islam and Judaism become trivial. And the similarities, the common meaning, ethics and morality of the three are brought to light. Thank you so much Krista Tippet and everyone who makes On Being possible for sharing the true nature of Islam. These stories resonate with my experiences and interactions with the Islamic community so unlike what is portrayed by most media outlets and even churches. They were a joy to listen to and something I feel I'll come back to again and again.
16 Muslims, in their own words, speak about the delights and gravity of Islam's holiest month. Through vivid memories and light-hearted musings, they reveal the richness of Ramadan — as a period of intimacy, and of parties; of getting up when the world is

No.  Just adverse people believe that.  I think that just breeds cynicism.  The whole, "you young whippersnappers don't know how good you have it, why back in my day... (insert depth of snow, mileage walked, etc...)"

Totally not in line with the above.  :-)

 'Every day, they are learning how brilliant [Snowden] was,' said a former U.S. official with knowledge of the case. 'This is why you don't hire brilliant people for jobs like this. You hire smart people. Brilliant people get you in trouble.'"

I don't think I've ever so much of what's wrong with the thinking in Washington summed up in such a succinct and enlightening manner. I can't help but wonder how much more bullshit like this it's going to take to break enough out of their apathy and actual change the status quo. 
Edward Snowden accessed some secret national security documents by assuming the electronic identities of top NSA officials, said intelligence sources. “Every day, they are learning how brilliant [Snowden] was,” said a former U.S. official with knowledge of the case.  …

Chris Roberts is making a new game?! Is it part of the Wing Commander canon or something completely new? It looks stunning either way. Any chance of an android port? There's a severe lack of good space combat sims on this OS. :-(
 
Way to go +Roberts Space Industries, I'm totally ready to by the 300 series next November. #starcitizen

Whoa, Matt, I'm kinda shocked you haven't seen this yet one of the most successful KickStarters of all-time. Has to date raise over 10M.

I wish I had kickstarted enough to get into the Alpha. The engine looks amazing

And to answer you question, they may do some second screen stuff on Android/iOS with management, but that trailer is all in-game, so I'm pretty sure it'll be upgrade time for my rig by that time.

Please go check it out and we'll start our own squadron 11-2014.

Yep, these are the people "regulating" our economic system.
A confidential report and a fired examiner’s hidden recorder penetrate the cloistered world of Wall Street’s top regulator -- and its history of deference to banks.

You know, if it weren't for the whole "getting locked into Apple's ecosystem" thing along with their obsessive need to control how the hardware is used after it's sold I would really, really, really want one. I'd even be willing to cough up the $3,000. Sadly the entire company was built by a control freak who was so good at marketing and mass manipulation that he managed to convince the rest of the world that those were good ideas. 
As a product designer, one of my favorite parts about any new Apple product launch is the inevitable "How it's made" video. The Mac Pro incarnation did not disappoint. What makes Apple fascinating is not that they are using some wiz-bang alien technologies to make things - even here in Portland, Oregon, all the technologies Apple shows in this video are in-practice across numerous local factories. What makes Apple unique is that the...

No this diet probably won't work for everyone, I doubt it would even work for me. I just love that more people are starting to pay attention to their bodies. Personally I've found that the more I pay attention to the subtle aches, ticks and tingles the easier it is to interpret them and the happier I become. Feeling better is always nice! :-)
