With enough time, you'll grow your own brand new dinosaur. What went wrong? ▲ Corn World: Teeth on the Cob. Thu 11-06-2015 I was commissioned by Scientific American to create an information graphic based on Figure 9 in the landmark Nature Integrative analysis of 111 reference human epigenomes paper. ▲ Network diagram redesign of the heatmap for a select set of traits.

100 Websites You Should Know and Use (updated!) Entertainment Meet David Peterson, who developed Dothraki for Game of Thrones There are seven different words in Dothraki for striking another person with a sword.

Cruz deWilde: Career Portfolio In the late 1600’s, Sir Isaac Newton got bonked on the head by an apple and surmised that every point of mass is attracted to every other point of mass with a strength that diminishes as the inverse of the square of the distance that separates them. The predictive accuracy of his equation was so consistent for so long, that his theory became law, despite the fact that he never managed to explain how gravity works. And it wasn’t until the dawn of Quantum Mechanics that we found out that gravity doesn’t always work. Today, our current collection of laws and theories representing some of humanity’s best efforts to describe the universe might be affectionately described as a large, codependent, dysfunctional family that lives by the mantra 'Often wrong, but never in doubt.' The Law of Gravity is the family patriarch that younger theories such as Relativity, Big Bang, and Quantum Mechanics are still forced to respect, even as they rebel against him.

37 Data-ish Blogs You might not know it, but there are actually a ton of data and visualization blogs out there. I'm a bit of a feed addict subscribing to just about anything with a chart or a mention of statistics on it (and naturally have to do some feed-cleaning every now and then). In a follow up to my short list last year, here are the data-ish blogs, some old and some new, that continue to post interesting stuff. Steam Extraction of Essential Oils Considering the cost of some essential oils exceeds $400 per oz. (30 ml) and most essential oils cost about $100 per oz. I thought it would be an interesting project to experiment with home made extraction. The cost of a pre-built unit (that is only about 5 gallons) is about $1,000 however, I sat up an experiment using a 55 gallon drum - and other junk I found around the farm for $0.00. The following pictures describe the materials and process.
