Like a snow globe from the future, the Tempescope consists of an acrylic case, water pump, mist diffuser and a bunch of LEDs which together are able to simulate a range of weather conditions, including clouds, lightning, rain and sunshine. Running off a small Arduino-based computer, the Tempescope is able to sync up with your phone or PC to show you what the weather's going to be like tomorrow with physical, realistic demonstrations. Aside from the fun-factor of having a box filled with actual lightning in your front room, the Tempescope has a number of practical uses. You can set it to mimic the weather outside right now or tomorrow, so think of it as a mini barometer or weatherman.

You can specify a location and have a Tempescope sync up to it -- a great way to "send" weather to loved ones that are far away. Or just use it as a way to relax and set it to rain lightly and lull you into sleep. Light. Limbero.com - Axel Samuelsson's code and other spare time projects.

Boston Market has about 530 company-owned restaurants, and touts their food as “fresh, delicious, home-style meals just like you would prepare and serve at home if you had the time–without the hassle of preparation and clean-up.” When you do cook at home, I hope you don’t add as much salt.

However, what impressed me most about the Boston Market online nutrition information is that they publish the ingredients in their food! (Scroll down past the spreadsheets) That’s the first time I’ve seen that from any chain, and I’ve got to say that — long lists of additives notwithstanding — it’s a huge level of transparency that I applaud. They also list some meal combinations under 550 calories.

It’s not even the first official day of CES 2015, but the biggest tech trade show of the year is already off and running. And unlike the past few years there’s already been a deluge of interesting new devices that seem like something more than blindly desperate attempts to copy Apple or latch onto to a trend no one cares about. Instead, what we’re seeing is that cheap sensors and embedded processors are worming their way into everything from recliners to baby bottles to plants to… belts? Okay, the belt was a little dumb. Yes, there was a lot of garbage at CES Unveiled last night.

Abscam—sometimes written ABSCAM—was a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) sting operation that took place in the late 1970s and early 1980s.[1] The two-year investigation was directed from the FBI's office in Hauppauge, New York, and was under the supervision of Assistant Director Neil J. Welch, who headed the bureau's New York division, and Thomas P. Puccio, head of the Justice Department's Organized Crime Strike Force for the Eastern District of New York. The operation initially targeted trafficking in stolen property and corruption of prestigious businessmen, but was later converted to a public corruption investigation.

The FBI, aided by the Justice Department and a convicted con-man, videotaped politicians accepting bribes from a fraudulent Arabian company in return for various political favors.[2] "Abscam" was the FBI codename for the operation.

During October we've been positively innundated with new versions of apps, mostly from Google as the company plasters Material Design over nearly its entire catalog. But there have been some notable launches as well, dominated by Google's own Inbox (and the scramble that comes from an invitation system). For some other highlighted picks from October and a few honorable mentions, read on.

Inbox by Gmail Android Police coverage: Google's 'Inbox By Gmail' Email Replacement System Is Live, But Invite-Only For The Moment Inbox is kind of a big deal as far as Google is concerned - it appears to be the new status quo for the company's email system going forward. The app and web service are beautiful, but it's not all animations and bold colors: Inbox takes a new look at the way users actually interact with email. It treats each one like a task on a to-do list, and automatically groups them together for simple completion and dismissal.

Inbox by Gmail requires an invite. Google Fit djay 2. 2H7VbyY.jpg (JPEG Image, 2700 × 3600 pixels) - Scaled (27%) The Most Overrepresented Job In Every State : dataisbeautiful. OpenStax College. Nosey little fucker, aren't you? America Via Erica: Speech. Below is the video and transcript of the Coxsackie-Athens HS Class of 2010 valedictory speech that went viral on the web, thus proclaiming me as the 'valedictorian who spoke out against schooling.' Here I Stand Erica GoldsonJune 25, 2010 There is a story of a young, but earnest Zen student who approached his teacher, and asked the Master, "If I work very hard and diligently, how long will it take for me to find Zen?

The Master thought about this, then replied, "Ten years. " The student then said, "But what if I work very, very hard and really apply myself to learn fast - How long then? " This is the dilemma I've faced within the American education system. Some of you may be thinking, “Well, if you pass a test, or become valedictorian, didn't you learn something? I am now accomplishing that goal.

H. To fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence. ... To illustrate this idea, doesn't it perturb you to learn about the notion of “critical thinking.” 152. ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS: The science all-stars poster. So I originally just planned to do a poster featuring Newton’s famous quote along with the top 10 scientists in history. As I kept reading about all these great people, I kept adding more and more characters until it spiralled into the 47 people you see above. There’s no real criteria I had when choosing people, and being just a science fan and not an actual scientist, I’m sure I’m missing some important figures.

Please share in the comments some of your favourite scientists that I haven’t included, especially if you know of any more women … it’s a bit of a sausage fest up there. I’m open to updating the poster with your suggestions. Without further ado, roll call please: It’s now also available to BUY AS A POSTER, including a white variant version!

The Abacus Bracelet | HaHa Bird. Hey, hipsters! So that 1980s calculator wristwatch you’re wearing isn’t retro enough for you anymore? Time to go waaaaay back in time with your wrist-worn calculating devices, all the way to the abacus. The bracelet is made from layers of bubinga veneer, glued around a form one layer at a time. Individually, each piece of wood is flexible, but when they’re glued together they hold their shape. Below are veneer sheets cut into 1.5″ wide strips for the bracelet. The first step was to make a form for the bracelet. I drew out the shape in Illustrator, printed it, then spray-mounted it to a scrap of 2×4. To make the bracelet I spread some glue on a strip of veneer, wrapped it around the form with the glue side out, then wrapped another strip around it.

My first attempt (this project wasn’t successful until the third try) had indentations in the wood from the clamps, so on later attempts I put a layer of brass sheet around the wood to spread the pressure of the clamps.

How to Criticize with Kindness: Philosopher Daniel Dennett on the Four Steps to Arguing Intelligently.

By Maria Popova “In disputes upon moral or scientific points,” Arthur Martine counseled in his magnificent 1866 guide to the art of conversation, “let your aim be to come at truth, not to conquer your opponent. So you never shall be at a loss in losing the argument, and gaining a new discovery.” Of course, this isn’t what happens most of the time when we argue, both online and off, but especially when we deploy the artillery of our righteousness from behind the comfortable shield of the keyboard. That form of “criticism” — which is really a menace of reacting rather than responding — is worthy of Mark Twain’s memorable remark that “the critic’s symbol should be the tumble-bug: he deposits his egg in somebody else’s dung, otherwise he could not hatch it.”

But it needn’t be this way — there are ways to be critical while remaining charitable, of aiming not to “conquer” but to “come at truth,” not to be right at all costs but to understand and advance the collective understanding. Teen drug and alcohol use continues to fall, new federal data show. Drug and alcohol use among America's teens continues to trend downward, according to new numbers released today by the Department of Health and Human Services. From 2002 to 2013, the average American teenager's odds of regular (at least monthly) tobacco use nearly halved.

Recreational use of prescription painkillers saw a similar decline. The rate of regular alcohol use among teens aged 12 to 17 declined from from 17.6 percent to 11.6 percent over the same period. Teen marijuana use, a contentious topic now that several states have legalized marijuana sales, is also on the decline. These findings come from the 2013 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), an annual, nationally-representative survey of roughly 70,000 Americans aged 12 and older.

Because of its large sample size the survey is considered an authoritative account of the nature and scope of drug, alcohol and tobacco use in the United States.

Android’s factory reset feature is supposed to wipe all the data off your device, ensuring none of your personal data is left. You should be able to sell or dispose of your device in confidence after using it. Unfortunately, Android may not always wipe everything — and people who are determined enough may be able to recover some of your personal data afterwards.

But you can ensure your personal data is completely wiped if you know what you’re doing. Why Can Data Be Recovered? When you delete files from any hard drive or flash drive (whether on an Android phone, computer, or elsewhere), the files aren’t actually wiped from the drive. You can later use specialized deleted-file-recovery or data forensics tools to scan a drive for bits of deleted files and try to recover them.

Android’s “factory reset” feature seems to work similarly. If you’re selling or disposing of your phone, someone could examine its internal storage to find emails, photos, texts, and other personal data stored on it.
