Slowest sunsets around solstices - Peter Lowenstein in Mutare, Zimbabwe captured this beautiful sunset on December 16, 2017, a few days before the December solstice – his summer solstice. Here’s a natural phenomenon you might never have imagined. That is, the sun actually sets more slowly around the time of a solstice. The slowest sunsets (and sunrises) occur at or near the solstices. The fastest sunsets (and sunrises) occur at or near the equinoxes. This is true whether you live in the Nor...

In the premium price bracket, Samsung has continued to release high-end tablets, but the company has few competitors at this point. One of them...

The end of a season

Fungus, unknown species

Svartskog, Norway

This autumn has been the most amazing when it comes to mushroom diversity and numbers, but in the first week of November I found only inconspicuous and to me unknown species.

This one I found amongst the lichen and moss on the western slopes near the ocean where the very low hanging November sun still was able to warm the ground on its way towards the horizon. In summer this location would dry up quickly in the sun and there would be no sign of fungi.

Talon for Twitter - v7.0.0

New version is available to everyone now! I put up a new version to the beta channel this morning. I think it will only live in beta for a few hours, just to make sure there aren't any massive crashes. I will aim to push it to production later this morning.

The big change for this version is the inclusion of a new design for the timeline! Check out the details and notes, here: https://blog.klinkerapps.com/upgrading-your-twitter-timeline/

You can enable the Timeline Style Tweet Layout from the App Style section of settings. It isn't going to be for everyone. If you like the compact layout, chances are very high that you will hate this one.

If you do like it, enjoy!

Is it acceptable to use a brain scan to read a person's mind?

Using brain scans to see what a person is thinking? There's still a long way to go, but technologies for 'reading' the mind are developing fast. Could the use of such technology create privacy concerns? Giulio Mecacci and Pim Haselager of Radboud University propose five criteria that might help ethicists and policy makers to assess the potential implications of brain-reading technology. Their paper will soon appear in Science and Engineering Ethics. Using technologies such as functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalogram (EEG), researchers collect information about a person's brain activity. Thoughts can be associated to certain patterns of brain activity. By training an algorithm to recognize these associations, a person's thoughts can be inferred from their brain activity. In other words: to a certain extent, a person's mind can be read. Are your thoughts still your own? Such 'brain-reading' techniques can be used for a number of purposes. For 'locked-in' patients, for example, who are completely conscious, but have absolutely no control over their bodies any more. However, such applications also raise questions for society. Are your thoughts still your own? And can you be held responsible for your thoughts, for example in court? Mecacci and Haselager suggest that in order to assess these ethical and legal issues, a framework is needed.

Prioritizing national sovereignty over alliances, President Donald Trump is poised to outline a new national security strategy that envisions nations in a perpetual state of competition, reverses Obama-era warnings on climate change, and de-emphasizes multinational agreements that have dominated the United States' foreign policy since the Cold War.

The Republican president, who ran on a platform of "America First," will detail his plan Monday, one that if fully implemented could sharply alter the United States' relationships with the rest of the world. The plan, according to senior administration officials who offered a preview Sunday, is to focus on four main themes: protecting the homeland and way of life; promoting American prosperity; demonstrating peace through strength; and advancing American influence in an ever-competitive world.

Trump's doctrine holds that nation states are in perpetual competition and that the U.S. must fight on all fronts to protect and defend its sovereignty from friend and foe alike. While the administration often says that "America First" does not mean "America Alone," the national security strategy to be presented by Trump will make clear that the United States will stand up for itself even if that means acting unilaterally or alienating others on issues like trade, climate change and immigration, according to people familiar with the strategy.
