Six Books that will Change Your Life btw, I find that as a general tip, you should get as many different perspectives on the same subject. For example, on the subject of Wealth, I read or listened to: Rich Dad Poor Dad One Minute Millionaire Fountain of Wealth Robert Allen The Millionaire Next Door Think and Grow Rich Science of Getting Rich Web Relic, the Animated GIF, Becomes Medium for Art More often than not, animated GIFs are reserved for quick chuckles. Cat portals , face palms , and even the occasional girl punch , are this limited media format's bread and butter. But the current crop of digital artists are turning to this former Net-annoyance to create Web-based art. Sites like Rhizome , 8-Bit Today , and Nasty Nets dig through the deepest recesses of the Internet to find these oddball creations.

Demonic Males: Apes and the Origins of Human Violence By Richard Wrangham, Dale Peterson. Chapter One: Paradise Lost “You will be killed!” the man at the Burundian embassy in Kampala said, in a bizarrely cheerful voice, as he stamped our visas.
24 Sci-Fi Novels You Can Read for Free A true classic from the Golden Age of science fiction, written by a science fiction great. The pulpy space opera tale has aliens who secretly shape humanity's destiny, nuclear war, space travel, genetic engineering, stellar pirates, and more. This was just the first part of the Lensman series, an expansive set of books that spans billions of years. A Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne This book is a longstanding personal favorite, a tale of explorers who follow a series of caverns down to a prehistoric wonderland in the core of the Earth. The conceit is ridiculous to the point of near-fantasy, but as a tale of adventure its influence can still be felt, and it spawned many stories of relict dinosaurs and mysterious lands, as well as "what's under the crust" stories with varying degrees of implausibility.
"Life-Changing Books" We asked our readers what books made the biggest difference in their lives, and here’s what they had to say. The list below tells you what books shaped their lives and why. 1984 – George Orwell 1984 “was the first book I actually enjoyed reading.

And yes that was intended as a pun. I guess you could think of the work as ‘animated photography’. If you know or find any more information about the artist please drop a line or two in the comment section. So I sorta owe Matthew DiVito AKA Mr. Div a post since I posted some of his work last week and didn’t credit it properly.

eclectic excerpts delivered to your email every day from editor Richard Vague Today's encore selection -- from Quantum: Einstein, Bohr, and the Great Debate about the Nature of Reality by Manjit Kumar. Albert Einstein (1879-1955), the physicist who developed the theory of relativity, was born and spent his earliest years in Germany: " 'The people of Ulm are mathematicians' was the unusual medieval motto of the city on the banks of the Danube in the south-western corner of Germany where Albert Einstein was born. It was an apt birthplace on 14 March 1879 for the man who would become the epitome of scientific genius. The back of his head was so large and distorted, his mother feared her newborn son was deformed. Later he took so long to speak that his parents worried he never would.
Why Warp Drives Aren't Just Science Fiction Astrophysicist Eric Davis is one of the leaders in the field of faster-than-light (FTL) space travel. But for Davis, humanity's potential to explore the vastness of space at warp speed is not science fiction. Davis' latest study, "Faster-Than-Light Space Warps, Status and Next Steps" won the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics' (AIAA) 2013 Best Paper Award for Nuclear and Future Flight Propulsion. TechNewsDaily recently caught up with Davis to discuss his new paper, which appeared in the March/April volume of the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society and will form the basis of his upcoming address at Icarus Interstellar's 2013 Starship Congress in August. [Super-Fast Space Travel Propulsion Ideas (Images)] "The proof of principle for FTL space warp propulsion was published decades ago," said Davis, referring to a 1994 paper by physicist Miguel Alcubierre.

Male Bats Caught Performing Oral Sex on Females Male bats perform oral sex on females, apparently to make sex last longer, researchers say. These findings, the first discovery of male-to-female oral sex in bats, match prior studies revealing that female bats perform fellatio, or oral sex, on male bats. Scientists analyzed a colony of about 420 Indian flying foxes (Pteropus giganteus) roosting in a single fig tree in southern India, near the village of Nallachampatti. This fruit-eating bat is one of the largest bats in the world. Over the course of more than 13 months, using binoculars and a video camera, researchers witnessed 57 cases of sex ― oral and intercourse ― usually in the morning. "Apart from humans, bats also exhibit oral sex as a courtship behavior," said Ganapathy Marimuthu, a bat researcher at Madurai Kamaraj University in India.
