I investigate many different aspects of the series, including the characters, the story, the music, the art, the gameplay, and much more. In these videos, I explore psychological and philosophical concepts as they apply to FF, occasionally comparing and contrasting the games with other series, such as Legend of Zelda, The Elder Scrolls, Silent Hill and many more.

WebGL Water Loading... Made by Evan Wallace This demo requires a decent graphics card and up-to-date drivers. 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:

[App Roundup] Our Top Seven Picks For The Best New Apps Of October 2014 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. 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.

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.
