Anxiety: We worry. A gallery of contributors count the ways. If you live in America in the 21st century you’ve probably had to listen to a lot of people tell you how busy they are. It’s become the default response when you ask anyone how they’re doing: “Busy!”

Whether you're the kind of coffee drinker that slugs back the swill in the break-room coffee pot at work or savors exotic coffee on sleepy Sundays, there is always room for enhancing your java. Photo by visualpanic . Consider yourself forewarned however, once you begin brewing better coffee it becomes increasingly difficult to go back to enjoying crappy coffee. Raised in a family of non-coffee drinkers I simply accepted that the coffee I intermittently experienced in diners and donut shops across America was the entirety of the coffee experience—scalding hot, bitter in taste, and certainly not as pleasant a caffeine delivery system as Mountain Dew. All of that changed when I started drinking more coffee to survive life on the graveyard shift and decided that there had to be a way to make coffee taste good without adding so much sugar into it that I may as well have kept drinking soda.
Coffee aficionados often have to make a choice between easy but disdained drip coffee and the rewarding fuss of French press . Get ahead of the coffee snob curve by checking out pour-over coffee, a Japanese method that's gaining ground among caffeine fiends. The first thing to know about Japanese-style pour-over coffee is that it's not a weekend morning, heat-and-go method. It requires a special kind of kettle, a certain kind of carafe, good beans, and the patience to watch as small amounts of water work their way through the grounds. But the results, it is said, are very distinct: The narrow spout produces a thin, precise stream, and the handle brings your hand into a naturally balanced position - instead of flooding the filter and letting it drip, you deliver a measured amount of water over a period of several minutes.

Progeria (also known as Hutchinson Gilford Progeria Syndrome , [ 1 ] [ 2 ] and Progeria syndrome [ 2 ] ) is an extremely rare genetic disease wherein symptoms resembling aspects of aging are manifested at a very early age. The word progeria comes from the Greek words "pro" ( πρό ), meaning "before", and "gēras" ( γῆρας ), meaning "old age". The disorder has a very low incident rate, occurring in an estimated 1 per 8 million live births. [ 3 ] Those born with progeria typically live to their mid teens and early twenties. [ 4 ] [ 5 ] It is a genetic condition that occurs as a new mutation, and is rarely inherited. Although the term progeria applies strictly speaking to all diseases characterized by premature aging symptoms, and is often used as such, it is often applied specifically in reference to Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS).
The Internet has introduced a golden age of ill-informed arguments. You can't post a video of an adorable kitten without a raging debate about pet issues spawning in the comment section . These days, everyone is a pundit. But with all those different perspectives on important issues flying around, you'd think we'd be getting smarter and more informed. Unfortunately, the very wiring of our brains ensures that all these lively debates only make us dumber and more narrow-minded. For instance ...
You may already be familiar with some shortcuts for Google Search, like using the search box as a calculator or finding local movie showtimes by typing [movies] and your zip code. But there are many more tips, tricks and tactics you can use to find exactly what you’re looking for, when you most need it. Today, we’ve opened registration for Power Searching with Google , a free, online, community-based course showcasing these techniques and how you can use them to solve everyday problems.
Entrepreneurs all around the world are building technologies that empower their communities and address both local and global audiences. Last week, a team of Googlers from 10 countries gathered in Paris to spend time with entrepreneurs and startups at Le Camping, an accelerator program that’s part of Silicon Sentier , an association focused on supporting promising digital projects in the Ile de France region. We celebrated the results of the first two seasons of the program and welcomed the new startups for season three. Le Camping’s program selects 12 new startups each season (one season lasts six months).
You probably use machine learning technology dozens of times a day without knowing it—it’s a way of training computers on real-world data, and it enables high-quality speech recognition , practical computer vision , email spam blocking and even self-driving cars . But it’s far from perfect—you’ve probably chuckled at poorly transcribed text, a bad translation or a misidentified image. We believe machine learning could be far more accurate, and that smarter computers could make everyday tasks much easier. So our research team has been working on some new approaches to large-scale machine learning.
