This is my second experiment with illustrating theorems through a video. In the absence of a second opinion (so far) I've set it to "unlisted" on YouTube so I don't unwittingly mislead anyone. Comments and corrections are welcome.

We’re always interested in tools and techniques that can be built upon to drive innovation. The Eulerian Video Magnification method (http://people.csail.mit.edu/mrub/vidmag/) takes a video as input and exaggerates subtle color changes and imperceptible motions to reveal temporal variations undetectable by the naked eye. The results display hidden information that can give us insight into the world around us, as demonstrated below.

"Socialist" is a label conservatives have tried to pin on President Obama. Which puzzles real socialists. "It makes absolutely no sense," says Greg Pason of the Socialist Party USA. Obama's health care overhaul "is anything but socialist. It's bailing out for-profit companies."

Well, since Twitter (and its Photobucket proxy) turned my Men in Black 3 into something all black, here it is on Google Plus. My original tweet: "Tempted but decided sequel to a sequel to a sequel shouldn't invade memories of my first Sweden visit. #Stockholm #MIB3"

Nature and condos are a distraction, funding is bad, but it seems to me the ultimate problem is that Vancouver just doesn't feel like a city, it feels more like a collection of neighbourhoods that tolerate each other out of necessity or convenience. The lack of a collective civic identity (aside from the Olympics or mourning the riots) may or may not be a bad thing, but it may be reflected in some of Vancouver's arts and culture woes. Civic leaders also appear to have done little to capitalize on the cultural legacy of the Olympics (whatever one may think of the overall legacy) when locals did seem to unite in various collective events, not all directly sport-related.

Jeff.... YES... you get it. Vancouver is an overly small town masquerading as a big city. I took a tour as part of a design conference last summer with an architect and planner. He pointed out that Vancouver is a hodge-podge of contrasting interests because it is no longer a city. It's a large-scale residential community whose inhabitants commute to the burbs and back. The neighborhoods are now clusters of well-to-do and mostly foreign (in Vancouver in the last decade) inhabitants whose dependence on Asian investment have allowed them to remain immune from the culture. They have no idea of the original neighborhood concept of Vancouver or its once proud tradition. Last week I wrote a writer for the Sun who wrote an article on what killed the cultural scene. I responded from the theatrical point of view -- and later I'll add to my blog "Vancouver Solitudes". http://vancouversolitudes.blogspot.ca
My letter was too inflammatory to be put in the paper, but the writer wrote me back pretty much concurring.

Unknown committee voters apparently stall eurocopyright reform over unknown copyright owners.
 
Meanwhile, in the European Parliament, important copyright monopoly reforms were voted down 14-against-12 in a committee with 23 possible votes. That means 26 votes were cast and counted.

Vancouver (6 June 2012)
Matthew Soules lauded the opportunity cities give for "intercultural exchange" and noted the anti-urban extremism inflicted upon Phnom Penh, Sarajevo, and New York City. He was speaking at the Vancouver Urban Forum organized by the city's former mayor Sam Sullivan.

Some well-taken points here.
 
Mind Blowing Movies: Groundhog Day (1993): an essay.

A classic.

That a commercial movie like this could somehow flirt with and then explicitly reject the idea that romantic love alone is all you need -- instead using its metaphor to show that a connection to community and service are critical components to a fulfilling life -- was beyond a Twilight-Zone level shock for me.

Less than a year ago windows like this were smashed in by rioters when the local hockey team lost a championship. I kind of admire The Bay department store's ironic moxie in using broken glass in their display, though it is a bit startling.
