Yes, nurture affection and empathy.  As far as I've figured out, every human could be a monster given the environmental preconditions.  And each of us can also be the opposite, given the right environment.  I think perhaps we as a species have a net movement towards the enriching environment, but sometimes my optimism is challenged. :/ 
 
My main interest is in the promotion of human values. From birth we have a sense of affection and some sense of concern for others. We need to nurture it. Scientists have found that to ensure even physical health peace of mind is essential. People often think that love and compassion are only matters of religious concern, but in fact such values are necessary in all human relations.

"I feel as if I’m watching as we fly in slow motion on a collision course toward a giant mountain … Fewer than 10 years ago, the best analysis projected that melting Arctic sea ice would mean nearly ice-free summers by the end of the 21st century. Now the ice is melting so rapidly that virtually ice-free Arctic summers could be here in the next decade or two. The lack of reflective ice will mean that more of the sun’s heat will be absorbed by the oceans, accelerating warming of both the oceans and the atmosphere, and ultimately raising sea levels."  
We need to tax carbon dioxide emissions to protect our economy.

Been playing on http://online-go.com, mostly blitz because it's fun to go fast. In Go, the first pattern you learn is stairs.  This is the second thing I've learned.  There's this rule saying you cannot move so that the board has the same stone configuration compared to a previous state.  But you don't store it in your head that way to begin with.  You store it in the context of the below scenario: 1. White has what was previously a suicide position surrounded and will take my piece. 2. on my turn I cannot take white in retaliation so I must move elsewhere.  But that is only the first part of how that rule plays out in the stones.  Once you 2. move elsewhere, the board is now different than in the past, so if 3. your opponent is distracted in their glory of conquering territory, and plays elsewhere, you can 4. steal that space right back, HAH!  Now…. I am still losing the large majority of my games, BUT I have taught a lot of people this rule.  Sometimes it takes them a while to notice whats happening in the blitz.  :D

Is it better to get a later resignation than an early one?  Anyway I'm proud, I lost six games before I got this win.

see #ohlauer  on twitter.  MASSIVE 5day+ protest on human rights, freedom of movement.  Refugees even when they are allowed to stay in Germany are not given freedom of movement within Germany.  Many choose to come to Berlin anyway because racial violence is common in many parts of Germany.  See America's own warning to "foreign-looking" Americans traveling in Germany here under the Safety tab: http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/english/country/germany.html

Ah, you've seen the POV Polar Bear cam, right?
This video, which is the first ever from a free-ranging polar bear on Arctic sea ice, shows an interaction with a potential mate, playing with food (don't be surprised!), and swimming at the water’s surface and under the sea ice.

Wrote this for myself and a friend. Less than 25 lines. I <3 Perl. 

#this program reads a list of article word pairs in and promts the user for the correct article for one word at a time. Usage: "perl derdiedas.pl" in Terminal; exit with ctrl-Z. Edit this file as needed for desired vocabulary. 

use warnings; use strict; #because
my @lines=`cat derdiedas.pl`; #derdiedas .pl ->@lines
my %article_hash; #setup : word -> article
my $end=''; #for loop control below

foreach my $line (@lines){#this loop fills up %article_hash;
    if ($line=~/^__END__/){ $end="I exist";next} unless ($end){next} #1
    chomp $line; unless ($line=~/\w/) {next} #2 all bad lines gone
    my ($article, $wort) = split(/ /,$line); #split on space
    $article_hash{$wort} = $article; #print "*$article* $wort\n";
}
my @words=keys(%article_hash);#word keys -> array
my $wort = $words[rand @words];#pick a random word
print "\n___ $wort\n"; #first prompt

while (<>){ #main loop
    my $guess = $_; chomp $guess; #read in answer
    if ($article_hash{$wort} eq $guess) { print "RICHTIG! $guess $wort\n\n"}
    else { print "SCHEISSE! $article_hash{$wort} $wort\n\n\a" }
    $wort = $words[rand @words];#pick a random word
    print "___ $wort\n"; #next prompt
}

Wow. Docs drain all your blood and refridgerate you to buy time while patching gross traumatic injury. Opt out study design! I wonder how effective it will be.

Yeah, this was pretty far out. I hope the technique works, but I can't in good conscience wish that they obtain a large sample size... you gotta be almost dead already to try it. :-(

Introduction
I'm interested in biomedical science, education, and making a meaningful contribution to the world.  I've taught biology and bioinformatics at the college level, have performed academic research and worked in biotech R&D.

I like camping, jogging, painting, crocheting, reading and learning new skills.  I practice a vegan straight-edge lifestyle (sometimes badly) for compassionate and environmental reasons.
