A Teacher's Prayere
Dear Lord, Teach me the art of detachment, but not too much, that I might love them more sincerely and serve them more completely.

Updated: 14 March 2013 Religion can make axiological claims only; it cannot make epistemic and metaphysical claims. This in no way diminishes its value. On the contrary, it puts religion in its prop...

Tree Frog enjoying a Light Snack

This is a Cuban tree frog on a tree in photographer James Snyder's backyard in southern Florida.

How and why he ate this light is a mystery. When he took this photo, Snyder thought this frog was dead, having cooked himself from the inside.

After a few shots the frog adjusted his position. So after Snyder was finished shooting him, he pulled the light out of the frog's mouth and he was fine.

Here's a favorite observation of mine: I have a short, seven mile commute to work, part of which is on the "Lloyd Expressway," perhaps the only expressway in the country interrupted with traffic light...

Today we're marking the birth of a someone who is a hero to many of us at Google. Alan Turing was born 100 years ago into a world very different from our own—but he’s a founding father of every computer and Internet company today. In 1936, his paper “On Computable Numbers”  introduced two key concepts, “algorithms” and “computing machines," which now rank among the most important intellectual breakthroughs of the 20th century.

In the evolution of computing, all paths trace back to Turing—so we're proud to help commemorate and preserve his legacy. In 2010 we helped raise funds to preserve Turing's papers at Bletchley Park, and recently we’ve worked with curators at London’s Science Museum on their new exhibition “Codebreaker - Alan Turing’s Life and Legacy.” And of course, we couldn't let this occasion pass without a doodle. If you visit our homepage today, you'll find a simulation of his “Turing machine"—try your hand at programming it, and read more about Turing in our blog post: http://goo.gl/ByYbV
