Delusion or Fact?

Supposedly G+ has experienced a 97% drop in activity over the last 12 months. Call me crazy, but based on everything I can figure, its actually more active. 

Is this another case of drive by journalism or are others out there experiencing a huge drop in activity?
Google needs to rethink its mission statement and delight its customers

Heard this great quote today by Barry Hampe...

"The origin of the universe matters to only two kinds of people: creationists, who hope to prove something, and cosmologists, who hope to learn something."

+Paul Howard It would seem you are channeling your inner Deepak : )

I don't think generalizations are bad. In many cases they are helpful.

For instance, in general, its incredibly unsafe to drink and drive. Does that mean that everyone who has had a couple drinks is unsafe? Or that all sober drivers are safer? Of course not. But as a rule, "in general", this is a good concept to grasp because it saves lives.

Genuine replicators - here we come.
A new molecule-making machine could do for chemistry what 3-D printing did for engineering: Make it fast, flexible and accessible to anyone. Chemists built the machine to assemble complex small molecules at the click of a mouse, like a 3-D printer at the molecular level. The automated process has the potential to greatly speed up and enable new drug development and other technologies that rely on small molecules.

It absolutely blows me away how fast things are moving this century. One scientific breakthrough/discovery after another. Now this...!

The act of giving someone head is now a rather hostile takeover.

Daniel, you're not entirely correct. Those escalators seem to be made of wood and paper is a derivative from trees.
So, pray, let me have a good chunk of those escalators so I can read real Books (the audio is in my head) . Oh, BTW, once I'm finished I'll recycle it.
Of course 😊 the + goes to your "disruption" of the original idea.
Congrats to both.

Mind Blown...
(old news, but still amazing)
A bioengineer and geneticist at Harvard's Wyss Institute have successfully stored 5.5 petabits of data -- around 700 terabytes -- in a single gram of DNA, smashing the previous DNA data density record by a thousand times.

The human genome (≈ 3.3 Gbp ≈ 6.6 Gbits) weighs ≈ 3.6E-12 g,  a packing density of ≈ 1.8E+21 bits/g (≈ 202,600 Petabytes/g), so Life keeps the record (for now), beating the Harvard number by a factor of ≈ 295,000...

America's War on Science

I have few complaints living in the United States. I've been given many opportunities, been forgiven for failing, and have always been free to choose my own path. 

One thing though that has continually bugged me is the seeming war on Science that occurs here that you don't see in any other first world nation.

We literally have half the population doubting basic scientific consensus, whether it be evolution, the moon landing, vaccinations, GMOs, or climate change,

And this will no doubt be evidenced by many who quickly object to any of the above by parroting the stance of their political party or religious teachings who are about as well versed in science as your neighbor- the one who has never read a science book in her life.

It's nice to see a major publication shedding some light on this issue. Maybe the United States will finally turn the corner on science.
We live in an age when all manner of scientific knowledge--from climate change to vaccinations--faces furious opposition. Some even have doubts about the moon landing.

Concept and rashenal ideological processing are learned skills,also you should be able to think outside normal conceptions,in multidimensional aspects of thought process.

This is far more exciting to me than going to Mars...
 
It's Official: We're On the Way to Europa

http://bit.ly/1zbmdh1

NASA's 2016 budget request increases the space agency's budget by $519 million, starts a new mission to Europa, increases funds to Commercial Crew, and threatens some long-running planetary missions.

Story
Introduction
I'm a tech junkie,plain and simple. I love the fact that huge corporations like Google, Microsoft, Apple, and Facebook are war with each other.and we consumers ultimately have the final say on who wins. Particularly intriguing to me is assessing the meaning and potential implications of the changes in all this technology...which now seems to happen on almost a daily basis. 

As much as I'd like to post on a regular basis, I just don't have the time. But if I find an idea intriguing enough or something that just needs to be said, I'll write about it.
