A team of researchers working at the South Pole announced Monday that BICEP2 cosmic microwave background telescope had detected ripples from gravitational waves – the first evidence of cosmic inflation. This is one of the biggest discoveries in physics and cosmology in decades, providing direct information on the state of the universe when it was only 10-34 seconds old, energy scales near the Planck energy, as well confirmation of the existence of gravitational waves. The idea that the universe exponentially grew in a fraction of a second, rather merely rapidly expanding. The researchers at the South Pole were able to detect gravitational waves (ripples that squeeze space as they travel) and what they deemed the first direct evidence of this inflation occurring billions of years ago.

Games « you found me. I make alternate reality games: games that are designed to improve real lives or solve real problems. I’ve been making ARGs since 2001 — and you can watch trailers for a dozen of my favorite ARGs below. Many of my games challenge players to tackle real-world problems at a planetary-scale: hunger, poverty, climate change, or global peace, for example (see: EVOKE, World Without Oil, Superstruct). Others are simply designed to make players happier in their everyday lives — by dancing more, say, or by being kind to strangers (see: Top Secret Dance Off and Cruel 2 B Kind). And some have specific positive health impacts in mind: increasing physical activity, for example, or speeding up recovery from a concussion (see: CryptoZoo and SuperBetter).

Questionable Content: New comics every Monday through Friday Ah, the joy of working with good hardware. Today's strip is the first to be created entirely on my new G5 and with my new (shiny, silver) Wacom tablet. I can't say enough good things about working on an Apple computer.

Recycled Art: 66 Masterpieces Made From Junks Ever shocked by the beauty of toilet paper rolls, or saw the chicken formed by the egg shells, or witnessed coolest lion made by tires? Heck, all of them are even made by common things you discarded every day, and they are known as recycled art. (Image Source: Kyle Bean) Recycled art is not something that’s beautiful but just a waste of time and space. It’s like alchemy which turns base metal into gold, except that it turns trashes into gold.
