Hundreds of scientists demonstrated in Rome today against a proposed law on the protection of animals for scientific purposes, which they fear threatens biomedical research in Italy. The law — which was approved by Parliament on 31 July and is awaiting government rubber-stamping — is intended to ...

It's surprising how useful is to use wireshark to debug your problems with webservices :)

Ok, here is a question: if I'd want to start a DIY Bio space in my town, where could I start from?

+Vladimir Bulatov does it again!  At each moment, this movie shows you a tiling of the hyperbolic plane by pentagons, four meeting at each corner, mapped onto a disc with four slits cut out.  This mapping is conformal, meaning that it preserves angles.  As time passes, the hyperbolic plane rotates and we see this crazy movie.

For a more detailed explanation, with tons of great pictures, go here: http://bulatov.org/math/1001/

Here's the short version: there's a way to measure distances on a disk that makes it into a model of the hyperbolic plane.  There are actually a number of ways, but Bulatov - and Escher - use the Poincare disk model, because in this model straight lines look like portions of circles: very pretty.  Then, according to the Riemann mapping theorem you can map this disk in a conformal way onto a disk with 4 slits cut out.  The hard part is finding a formula for how to do it, and then implementing it on a computer.

For more details, try these picture-packed pages:

and this more advanced one:
