Researchers uncover 8,000 years of human history hidden in the Middle East Which would be interesting, seeing as, when interpreted literally, the Bible also claims that the universe was created between 6000-8000 years ago. Which is problematic, to say the least. EDIT: Not to mention the mental gymnastics required to reconcile the (presumably) carbon dating of the earliest Mesopotamian settlements to 8000 years ago and the fact that that same dating methods go on to describe artifacts and fossils that are up to 40 000 years old. As I recall, Asimov hypothesized that the age of creation used in the Bible is actually linked to the point at which we (or rather Near Eastern peoples) began recording history in the form of writing. Not sure how strong his evidence was but it sounds reasonable intuitively.
filter CSS Filters are a powerful tool that authors can use to achieve varying visual effects (sort of like Photoshop filters for the browser). The CSS filter property provides access to effects like blur or color shifting on an element’s rendering before the element is displayed. Filters are commonly used to adjust the rendering of an image, a background, or a border. The syntax is: Where blur()brightness()contrast()drop-shadow()grayscale()hue-rotate()invert()opacity()saturate()sepia()url() - for applying SVG filterscustom() - "coming soon" Surreal video works This video by Sam Spreckley is called 'Surface ii' and is a combination of 8mm film being destroyed and some awesome sound effects. The perfect collaboration of vague sounds with surreal images makes this video a great piece of art. The video below is called 'Oil and Water' and is also a definite recommendation!
Why Learning to Code is So Damn Hard Quincy Larson was just a "guy in a suit in an office" and decided he wanted to learn how to code. So he asked around. He started by picking up a bit of Ruby then found himself skimming through other languages like Scala, Clojure and Go. He learned Emacs then Vim and even the Dvorak keyboard layout. He picked up Linux, dabbled in Lisp and coded in Python while living on the command line for more than half a year. Like a leaf in a tornado, the advice Quincy received jerked him first one way and then another and then another until he'd finally taken "every online course program imaginable".
