"No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away"

The ripples you caused, Sir Terry, are going to circle the world, and intersect, and reproduce over and over again for long times to come.

The world without Terry Pratchett is a smaller, darker place.

Thank you, Charlie Stross, for writing an unsentimental eulogy that shows another facet of Terry's life, and how it touched you.

Science FTW!
 
Die Raumsonde Rosetta hat Kometenbilder gemacht, auf dem zentimetergroße Details der Oberfläche zu sehen sind. Und ihr eigener Schatten!

Man kommt mit den Berichten über die laufenden Weltraummissionen ja gar nicht mehr hinterher. Zuerst die neuen Bilder des Zwergplaneten Ceres. Und gestern wurde neue Bilder veröffentlicht, die während des extrem nahen Vorbeiflugs der Raumsonde Rosetta am Kometen 67P/Tschurjumow-Gerasimenko gemacht worden sind. Am 14. Februar flog Rosetta in nur 6 Kilometer Abstand an der Oberfläche…

John Oliver nails it - we wouldn't expect anything less than that.

The same "legal insanity" will of course follow after any of the other "Trans * Partnership *" treaties will take effect, nullifying national jurisdiction whenever a multinational company feels like it without any means for appeal.
Australia's plain packaging cigarette laws have received global attention thanks to a starring role in a segment of John Oliver's satirical television news program, which highlighted how how tobacco companies attack laws designed to reduce cigarette consumption.

Dear +Google - the last thing I want to see when I plus a posting about something serious, is a bubbly explosion of Valentine Hearts.

Please stop it.

Thank you.

The GOP's War on Science continues, further proving that the only thing they are interested in is partisan politics.

Unbelievable.
 
In further news, the US House of Representatives has continued their plans to bring about the Apocalypse, passing a bill (on almost exactly party lines) to effectively ban scientists from being on the EPA's scientific advisory board. Under these new rules, anyone who has done research on anything which the board studies is considered to have a conflict of interest, and therefore cannot sit on the board. Fortunately, simply having a financial stake in the matters which the board studies does not constitute a conflict of interest, so the scientific advisory board continues to be open to corporate public affairs officers, demented preachers, or roving madmen off the street.

The bill now proceeds to the Senate, where it has been referred to the Committee on Environment and Public Works. This is the committee chaired by Sen. Inhofe of Oklahoma, author of The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future and other light classics, in which he tells us that because of the existence of God, the "arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is... outrageous." So in all, it's a good year for public affairs officers, demented preachers, and roving madmen off the street in all aspects of our government, and I forecast excellent career opportunities for each of these categories going forward. 

h/t +Peter da Silva for the link.
The GOP-dominated House passed a bill Tuesday that effectively prevents scientists who are peer-reviewed experts in their field from advising the EPA.

Houston, Chapel Hill, Mississippi   ... it is time to call out those who are fuelling the hatred. Every single time.
 
This is worth your time and consideration. Thanks, +Jenn Le Roy 
Judge Carlton Reeves sentenced three young white men in the murder of an innocent black man. But first, he had something to tell them.
