Denna veckas kluring rör sig i gränslandet mellan ämnena matematik och fysik. Det handlar om att lägga vanliga spelkort så långt ut på en bordskant som möjligt utan att de ramlar ner. På bilden nedan syns två spelkort på en bordskant. Notera att de är placerade så att det översta kortet till största delen ligger utanför bordet.

Science for Everyone! Hi everyone! It's been a long time (my life as a postdoc is exhausting and leaves me no time to blog), but I admire this year's Nobel Laureate Randy Schekman's (of UC Berkeley, go Bears!) efforts to raise an important issue regarding the rising cost of higher public education during his acceptance speech in Stockholm next week. Could This 2013 Nobel Laureate Afford College Today?

Earth and other unlikely worlds From Evening's Empires: Escorted by the assassin and her sisters, Hari passed through an airlock into a short tunnel lined with stained white ceramic, where hidden machines blitzed him with microwaves, neutrino beams, and X-rays. He was forced to surrender his book, felt a small surge of relief when it was returned to him after it had been interrogated inside a virtual space as ancient as the tunnel’s security protocols. It was the only thing he’d brought with him.
The Mary Sue - A Guide To Girl Geek Culture “Dude, I have gotten in some trouble for my little quotes and I am learning to whoop [zipped-lips motion]. I thought that I was saying things that were foregone conclusions. It turns out nothing is, and you will not be hearing from me on the Batman front.” – actress (and Ben Affleck’s wife) Jennifer Garner speaking with Collider. Garner previously made headlines when she barely said anything about Affleck’s Man of Steel sequel costume. ”I’ve seen the suit,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “The suit is unbelievably cool.

This piece was originally published on AlterNet. In a society that reflexively copes with death by using religion, grieving atheists are turning to each other. How do you deal with death -- your own, or that of people you love -- when you don't believe in God or an afterlife?
