Aerobie AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker: Kitchen & Dining
I've been searching for the perfect cup of coffee for some time. A local coffee shop has achieved it with the Clover (sadly now owned by Starbucks and not for sale: [www.starbucks.com]) but how to achieve similar quality at home? French press comes incredibly close, but is too muddy. The bottom 1/3-1/4 of the cup is more like Turkish coffee, it's so thick. My solution is to brew like a french press, letting the coffee steep for 4 minutes or so, but then running it through a paper or mesh filter in a manual coffee pot ([www.amazon.com]). Brew the Best Possible Coffee Without Breaking the Bank
Pour-Over Coffee Is an Intriguing Alternative for Coffee Snobs I don't get it. I need a $60 imported japanese 'goose-neck fra-la-la' to pour water? The basic idea is great - pour a cup at a time, use not-too-hot water, pour it slowly and precisely into the grounds, and use good filters. I do that every weekend with a $2 cone, and my beat up old kettle, in a 5-minute ritual that gives me peace and provides great coffee. When she beats me to it, my wife throws a mug full of scalding water into the cone, and 15 seconds later I have a cup of acrid, watery coffee. What you use to grind - important.

Progeria Progeria (pronunciation: /proʊˈdʒɪəriə/) (Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome, HGPS, Progeria syndrome) is an extremely rare genetic disease wherein symptoms resembling aspects of aging are manifested at a very early age. Progeria is one of several progeroid syndromes. The word progeria comes from the Greek words "pro" (πρό), meaning "before" or "premature", and "gēras" (γῆρας), meaning "old age". The disorder has a very low incident rate, occurring in an estimated 1 per 8 million live births. Those born with progeria typically live to their mid teens to early twenties. It is a genetic condition that occurs as a new mutation, and is rarely inherited, as patients usually do not live to reproduce. 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 ... 5 Logical Fallacies That Make You Wrong More Than You Think

Supporting entrepreneurship in France at Le Camping 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. Using large-scale brain simulations for machine learning and A.I.

Introducing Chrome for iPhone and iPad!
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean coming in July with Project Butter UI, Google Now, richer notifications The next major upgrade to Android will be version 4.1 Jelly Bean, it has been announced at Google I/O today. Project Butter is the major new innovation in Android 4.1, focused on making the entire UI "fast, fluid and smooth." That includes triple buffering in the graphics pipeline, to ensure consistent frame rates with interface animations. Google's I/O demo showed two Galaxy Nexus devices side by side, one running Ice Cream Sandwich and the other on Jelly Bean, with the latter offering a significantly higher frame rate when navigating the Android UI. Google Now is a big addition from the Android team, introducing a sort of self-aware quality to Android phones — automatically updating you on your favorite sports teams in real time, learning your commute route and checking traffic, and also providing public transit information when it senses you're close to a transport station.
