    The World's Thinnest House
    Polish architect Jakub Szczesny told the Wall Street Journal that he often walked by the gap and thought, "This is a perfect spot for life to be inserted."

    Squeezed into a 5-foot Warsaw alley that actually narrows further to 3 feet, the home itself is just about 50 inches wide in front and scarcely more than 2 feet wide toward the back.

    Judgement

    “No one truly knows what they will do in a certain situation until they are actually in it. It's very easy to judge someone else's actions by what you assume your own would be, if you were in their shoes. But we only know what we THINK we would do, not what we WOULD do.”

    SADNESS

    Nothing can cure the soul but the senses, just as nothing can cure the senses but the soul.

    So true both are equal. Calmness of soul is very important because when a person is going through sad phase which have changed his life he needs strength to fight with the situation.
    I am also going through same situation. I have got no words to share. Got no Idea what to say,
    But 
    I am trying my level best to come out of sadness & doing my best to reach out for the colors of Life
    Morally I need spirit to face the challenge. So in a way I am sharing with G+ because it is full of life & enthusiasm. I need some encouraging words from you G+ family.

    7 tips on how to build a great network on Google+

    Here are a few tips I have received along the way on how to build a network of people with whom you want to interact....

    1. Decide on what you want to be doing on Google+
    For you, is this social media platform for passion, pleasure, professional, philosophical conversations or even finding people to whom you simply relate...? You can decide or just let it happen! Either way, you make it your own.

    2. Find people you want to be doing it with!
    Search by "hashtags", "shared circles" "profiles" "pages" and add them into relevant circles. There are so many ways you can make Google+ your own and build your personalised network.

    3. You can then just look at people's posts within specific circles and have that as your stream depending on what you want to experience

    4. Build up circles based on people "bringing people together". These form part of your network and...

    5. You can then share the circle with others as limited or open as a public post. But when you share public more people will find it and if they want, they can add the circle in as part of your network. Sharing circles is a natural way to build your network based around passions, as +Guy Kawasaki would say!

    6. Engage and interact with people you relate to and want to build a connection with. It is a two way process but often needs one person to initiate the contact.

    7. We are connecting in a totally new global way.
    Google+ is not Facebook.
    There is a wonderful opportunity for you to find people you want in your life. And you might find that building your own network of connections enriches it as well.

    And of course Emotional Intelligence and Social Intelligence will all play a part as well. An article on that here: http://bit.ly/Jfx0JM

    Thanks to everyone for engaging, you make Google+ what it is :D

    A shout out to +Rehan Ahmad as we keep reconfirming that "engagement is the key" and to +Jaana Nyström +Elaine Lindsay +Linda Dee +pio dal cin +Johan Horak +Amanda Blain and many others who are delighted to help so many people on this platform.
    Thanks for the guidance from you all as well :D
    Also, if you don't know +Rahul Roy and +Shamil Weerakoon then I'd suggest you add them in as they are the Masters of Curation!

    10 Important Tips for Google+ Beginners

    1. To get the most rewarding experience on Google+ begin by circling at least 300. I picked 300 since it’s a manageable number. Circle too little of a number of people and your stream will be dead, circle too many at the beginning and you might overwhelm yourself with an overload of information, most of all you’ll have a hard time making solid and lasting connections.

    Don’t just circle blindly or you’ll get bored. Do searches for terms you like reading about, if you’re interested in physics do a search for “Einstein”. The search results will bring up a ton of posts relating to your interests. Go through them then click on one that catches your eye. Check the users profile out, do you like their content? If so circle them! Keep doing this until you've got a good amount of people circled.

    2. Pay attention to the What’s Hot posts/section, some of the posts that get in the What’s Hot section come from hightly active engagers. Connect with them! You can learn a lot from watching what goes on in their threads. I haven’t met an active engager who wasn’t friendly, so don't be shy.

    3. Once you’ve started connecting with people who you share the same interests with and begin experiencing just how wonderful the community is you’ll start to realize that it no longer makes a difference if your real life friends and family move over from Facebook.

    Google+ is much different than Facebook in a sense that here you make new friends, friends who you will probably have a lot more in common with than your family or real life friends over on Facebook. Making new friends or connections seems like a daunting task but actually comes quite easily and naturally once you begin engaging with other people and find your place among a group with similar interests. Right now you want your friends and family here to fill a void, once that void is filled you wont give it much thought since you’ll be wrapped up in fun and interesting discussions or sidetracked by all the yummy information that fills your stream.

    4. Everybody wants comments and shares, that’s natural. Give it some time, once you begin actively engaging with other users you’ll notice more action on your posts so long as others find your content interesting. Google+ isn’t Twitter so posts that contain just a sentence or two will probably be overlooked. Look around, find out what other people are commenting on, pay attention to the topics that get attention. Provide users with content that will benefit them in some way. If you’re an expert at something write a post on tips and techniques. Be helpful, people will appreciate you for it!

    5. Post original content. Reshaing posts is a great way to spread something interesting but be interesting yourself and create unique content. People who only reshare the content of others probably won't have many people following them. We want to get to know YOU, not just them.

    6. Over time you’ll begin to make friends with other users by replying to their comments on a regular basis. If you jump all over the place and don’t become a regular commenter to a handful of people you follow then it’s kind of like you’re just passing by. When you become a regular commenter people will notice you, they’ll see that you’re an active engager. Engagers follow other engagers. Post helpful or interesting stuff and you’ll begin seeing an influx of comments and shares on your own posts.

    It takes time to grow your circles and a bit of skill in learning what types of posts get the most action. Don’t give up! Engage, engage, engage!

    7. One of the reasons users follow other users is because they’ve read a comment they wrote that was well thought out, helpful, or inspiring. One of the things I look for in following someone is their sense of humor. I love being around people who will make me laugh! So funny comments tend to grab my attention.

    8. It’s never too late to “click” with a group. Normally “clicks” are considered a bad thing, they remind us of high school. But here clicks are formed by people who share the same interests not people who flock together thinking they’re better than everyone else and don’t care to let anyone else join their “club”. Here everyone is open to connecting with new users, the more the Google+ community brings us, the better. So don’t feel like you can’t find a place to fit it, trust me there are thousands of places for you to fit in. We’re all very accepting here, we love connecting with new people!

    9. If you have questions, ask them! I don’t know one person here who wouldn’t take the time to answer a question from someone who is new. We were all new at one point and had our own questions. Heck... I still have questions! Don’t feel intimidated because you’re just learning when it seems everyone else is already an expert. We’re not, there are new features coming out all the time, we learn new things from people every day. We’re ALL learners. In fact, I think that’s why we’re here, to learn something new!

    10. Have fun! What could be more simpler than that?

    “Sometimes I ask myself, "Do I have the courage to do the right thing when it matters most?" And that answer, I'm afraid, is silence.”

    DEFEAT YOUR FEAR


    Don't let what you don't know scare you, because it can become your greatest asset. And if you do things without knowing how they have always been done, you're guaranteed to do them differently.
    so
    Convert your fear into strength to
    ROCK THE WORLD

    PASSION VS QUALITY

    If you have passion you can adjust with quality, because sometimes passion can stretch our abilities to its limits.
    If you have less facilities it allows you to think more productive ideas to fulfill your passion.
    so
    BE PASSIONATE WHAT EVER YOU DO

    RAIN

    The richness of the rain made me feel safe and protected; I have always considered the rain to be healing -- a blanket -- the comfort of a friend. Without at least some rain in any given day, or at least a cloud or two on the horizon, I feel overwhelmed by the information of sunlight and yearn for the vital, muffling gift of falling water.

    Its rain here, I am loving it & happy to share with you all friends
    so

    In honor of poet Adrienne Rich, this morning I send greetings to all our poets, poetry lovers and cartoon freaks,

    Forgetfulness: The name of the author is the first to go, followed obediently by the title, the plot, the heartbreaking conclusion, the entire novel, which suddenly becomes one you have never read, never even heard of. It is as if, one by one, the memories you used to harbor decided to retire to the Southern hemisphere of the brain, to a little fishing village, where there are no phones. Long ago, you kissed the names of the nine Muses goodbye and you watched the Quadratic Equation pack its bag. And even now, as you've memorized the order of the planets, something else is slipping away, a state flower, perhaps, the address of an Uncle, the capital of Paraguay. Whatever it is you are struggling to remember, it is not poised on the tip of your tongue, not even lurking in some obscure corner of your spleen. It has floated away, down a dark mythological river, whose name begins with an "L" as far as you can recall, well on your own way to oblivion, where you will join those who have forgotten even how to swim and how to ride a bicycle. No wonder you rise in the middle of the night, to look up the date of a famous battle in a book on war. No wonder the moon in the window seems to have drifted out of a love poem that you used to know by heart. - Billy Collins, former two-term U.S. Poet Laureate

    It is difficult for me to resist writing out the entire script of Collin's TEDTalk, much as I might want to because it is so great. Instead I hope that I can gently, poetically, lure you away from whatever you are doing to listen to this wise, charming, witty, childlike and brilliant poet talk about his collaboration with the Sundance Channel, which took several of Collins' poems and animated them, making them immediate, accessible and inviting, making them seem, well, not like poetry at all, but more like thoughts we all have every day about everything, only we just don't know it, and if we did, we couldn't put those meandering thoughts down on paper with the particular brilliance of Collins, for if we could that would make us all poets now, wouldn't it? But we aren't poets, are we? But Collins is, and thank God for that.

    I have always loved poetry and poets. I am in awe of the craft and those who take on the mastery of it. And I share this intriguing TEDTalk with you today in honor of renowned poet Adrienne Rich, who died on Tuesday at age 82, and about whose extraordinary life you can read here:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/29/books/adrienne-rich-feminist-poet-and-author-dies-at-82.html?pagewanted=1&hpw

    Please watch. I think you will enjoy it and have a few very good laughs in the meantime.

    Launch Madness: NASA fires 5 rockets in 5 minutes. Two days ago, 5 ATREX sounding rockets were fired from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia as part of a heliophysics study of the upper level jet stream.

    • At the edge of space, 60 to 65 miles above Earth's surface, winds achieve astonishing speeds of 200 to 300 miles per hour. This highly electromagnetic layer can damage man-made satellites and disrupt communications systems.

    • Each rocket released a harmless chemical tracer, trimethyl aluminum (TMA), which forms milky, white clouds that track the winds in space. In addition, two of the rockets carried instrumented payloads to measure pressure and temperature during their short flights.

    • "This area shows winds much larger than expected," says Miguel Larsen, a space scientist at Clemson University who is the principal investigator in charge of these five rockets, known as the Anomalous Transport Rocket Experiment (ATREX). "We don't yet know what we're going to see, but there is definitely something unusual going on. ATREX will help us understand the big question about what is driving these fast winds."

    These technologies can make life easier, can let us touch people we might not. But
    Technologies are not worthy of Parents.
    Because

    The technology can only instruct us to do any thing but Parents performs time & time again to make us understand. Like a child first walk by holding finger of there parents. This technology can't do

    A technology can make your way a bit easier towards the goal But parents will support us till the goal is in our hand. so

    My message to all G+sers Please when ever you get time hold your parents hand & just say this to your parents

    Phase of disappointment or losing hope on G+

    Frank Gehry

    A world renowned Architect. An Architect who's concepts made him famous. An Architect who was rejected by his teacher. His teacher said "you are not for Architecture. But he never looses his hope & continued to struggle & today world is forced to learn his art of expressing Architecture. He did work on Cubism, Curve specially A-symmetrical shapes of designs in an awesome way that one could not stop himself to say:
    That's what I want

    SKETCHES OF FRANK GEHRY
    It is a documentary about this wonderful Architect. About his ideas, concepts & behavior towards perceiving any project. He believe that a wrong thing or a thing that is not placed in a proper manner is itself a UNIQUENESS because odd value does take attraction.

    My View
    I am a strong believer of Dynamism, Or A thing that puts you in sate of surprise. Because in present day world every one want fresh & attractive views. The awareness is building up in today's generation about understanding new ways of living. That how can we make our habitats according to our environment. This ideology is presented by this super genius Architect. His way of developing an awesome piece of Architecture through an ugly sketch has inspired me & helped me to improve my Perception & Conceptual ideologies.

    I must prefer every one to have a look at this trailer & must watch complete documentary whether you are an Architect or not because it can influence your thinking & help's you to do that what your Heart wants.
    so

    ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOUR HEART

    A Dream Grows in Copenhagen

    COPENHAGEN — How does a city expand and, at the same time, reduce car use and emissions? Officials in Copenhagen believe part of the answer is to build and extend a modern mass transit network while trying to eliminate the need for commuting altogether.


    Copenhagen, with a population of 1.2 million in the city and its suburbs, will need to find homes for a projected 100,000 new residents by the year 2025.

    Fortunately, the city still has room to grow.

    In 2001, the first building in a new master-planned suburb called Orestad, south of downtown and named for the Oresund, the channel separating eastern Denmark from Sweden, was completed. Work on preparing a second major site, Nordhavn, in the docks north of the city, has just begun on land freed up by the departure of heavy industry.

    The Copenhagen City and Port Authority, a foundation owned jointly by the city of Copenhagen and the Danish state, is tasked with developing both plans at a cost of several billion dollars.

    But the completion of Orestad and the commencement of Nordhavn are coming at a time of great uncertainty in the Danish and global economies. The European Commission has cut its growth forecast for Denmark to 1 percent this year from 1.4 percent.

    Although new buildings are being put up at a slower pace than before the financial crises — Denmark is part of the European Union but not the euro zone — building in Orestad has not stopped. And officials here say it is because they must grow or stagnate.

    “When the development of the new town on the Orestad site was decided by the Danish parliament in the early 1990s, the politicians realized that Copenhagen lacked the dynamic and attractions to function as the driving force for Denmark and to be able to compete with other metropolitan cities in Europe,” said Rita Justesen, chief planner at the City and Port Authority.

    Orestad, a 310-hectare, or 766-acre, development, was meant to help change that, introducing new energy into this windswept city between the North Sea and the Baltic.

    “We had 310 hectares on the edge of the city with no existing buildings,” Ms. Justesen said. “It could act as a testing ground for new urban and architectural ideas. For example, we had the possibility of building high-rise blocks which were not allowed elsewhere in the city.”

    Copenhagen’s latest reinvention — there have been a number through the centuries — started in earnest when an international architectural competition was announced in 1994 to develop Orestad, then an empty strip of land about 600 meters, or 2,000 feet, wide and 5 kilometers, or 3.1 miles, long in the flatlands between the southern fringe of the capital and its international airport. A plan submitted by Arkki, a Finnish studio, was selected.

    There was also a synergy to be tapped: in 1995, construction started on a combined road and rail bridge-tunnel to connect Copenhagen with the Swedish city of Malmo across the strait. The link, the longest such structure in Europe, gave the Danish capital the chance to enlarge its sphere of economic influence to embrace Malmo, a prosperous city of just over 300,000 people.

    The link opened in 2000 and Orestad is ideally situated to benefit, as it straddles the highway that connects Jutland, the peninsula on which mainland Denmark sits, to Stockholm via Malmo.

    Essentially, the City and Port Authority had two main goals: getting enterprises to set up in the city instead of on the outer fringe of Copenhagen — or abroad — and encouraging young families to stay in Copenhagen rather than buying a home in the distant outskirts.

    Businesses have moved into Orestad, but the plan has not yet proved hugely successful in attracting new residents, though the wider malaise of the Danish property sector is undoubtedly a key factor: average real estate prices in Denmark have dropped about 15 percent since 2007, when the market was at its peak.


    According to research provided by Danish Homes, a real estate agency, the average cost of a two-bedroom apartment of 70 square meters, or 750 square feet, in Orestad is around 2.1 million Danish kroner, or about $373,000. This compares with, for instance, 1.5 million kroner for a two-room unit of a similar size in Norrebro, a mainly working-class district to the north of the historic city center that is in the process of gentrifying.

    Planned suburbs are nothing new in Copenhagen. The quarters of Christianshavn and Frederiksstad were built in the 17th and 18th centuries, respectively, following plans to expand the city into new areas. Both districts are now regarded as “natural” parts of Copenhagen, even though developers originally found it difficult to attract new residents.

    In the 20th century, the architect Arne Jacobsen — internationally famous for his Egg and Swan chairs — designed Bellavista, a stylish housing estate on the Oresund coast about five miles north of Nordhavn. Completed in 1934, Bellavista’s white-washed walls, rounded corners and flat roofs are a faintly exotic take on modernism.

    Less exotic but arguably much bolder than Jacobsen’s interwar project, the Orestad development deliberately mixes housing — mainly blocks of flats and compact brick single-family homes with modest backyards — with offices and stores, including the largest mall in Scandinavia.

    From the automated train that connects Orestad to Copenhagen’s historic center in about 10 minutes, day and night, the visitor can glimpse the originality of the plan: broad green spaces juxtaposed with dense pockets of housing, office blocks and retailing space, interspersed with sometimes breathtaking standalone buildings. These range from the huge, squat block of Field’s shopping center to the shimmering blue form of the city’s new concert hall, which appears suspended 45 meters above the ground.

    In its brochure, “Copenhagen Growing: The Story of Orestad,” the City and Port Authority includes a striking image of two cows grazing on pastureland with an angular block in the background. The building is the 8 House which, typically for Orestad, combines housing units, shops and offices — and it is beginning to fill with new residents.

    All told, right now just over 6,100 people live in Orestad. In time, some of the current green spaces will disappear; when the project is complete the new suburb will be home to around 20,000 residents and may offer jobs to as many as 80,000 people. Field’s, the mall, already employs around 3,000.

    But Orestad is not without its critics. A prominent local architect, Jan Gehl, says the new suburb was old-fashioned from its inception. “It was built on principles — specifically those of the modernist movement — that were popular in the middle part of the last century,” he said. “Orestad was built from the top-down, rather than from the bottom-up. Plus, there was an idea that if you got enough ‘starchitects’ on board, then things would be fine.”

    The French architect Jean Nouvel designed the DR Concert Hall, which is the focal point of the new Danish TV and radio complex, and home to the Danish National Symphony Orchestra.

    Images can be projected onto the building’s semi-transparent exterior facade when a performance is in progress. (Mr. Nouvel’s creation overran its budget and its final cost was around $300 million, making it the world’s most expensive concert hall.)

    Meanwhile, the Polish-born American architect Daniel Libeskind was hired to design a striking 710-room hotel, the Cabinn Metro, close to the center of the district.

    Arguably more beautiful than either of these is the Tietgen student dormitory, a ring-like structure designed by the Lundgaard & Tranberg firm of architects, with a copper alloy facade that is intended to change in color over time. The Tietgen building accommodates students enrolled at Orestad’s IT University.

    “The thing is,” Mr. Gehl said, “when they designed Orestad the spaces between the buildings was not an area of concern. The district could also have benefited from softer edges.” By softer edges, Mr, Gehl explains that Orestad needs spaces where residents are encouraged to linger, like shops with their merchandise on view outside and cafes with outdoor seating.


    “It’s the two lower stories that are the key,” Mr. Gehl said. “We see at our eye level, not much upwards or downwards.”

    Ms. Justesen, the chief planner, said she was pleased the city had the vision to “think big.”

    “But making a new town a lively place is always hard,” she said. “Getting from nothing to something has required a focused effort.”

    Other problems include geography. Orestad sits on a plain and is very windy; additionally, in Scandinavia the sun is low in the sky for much of the year and Orestad’s high buildings create shadows.

    Nordhavn, the second big project, covers 200 hectares. It is a child of this century, and overcomes some of Orestad’s negatives, like outdoor living space. It will have a denser, lower structure, with homes, offices and retailing units “on a traditional Copenhagen scale,” Ms. Justesen said.

    Nordhavn’s master plan includes two large, public spaces, alongside smaller parks that will give residents play and exercise areas, drawing on Copenhagen's wider interest in so-called pocket parks: attractive, well-lit green spaces of fewer than 5,000 square meters, often created on irregular plots, where friends can meet or take a lunch break, and children can play safely.

    Unlike Orestad, Nordhavn is essentially an urban regeneration plan, on and around former shipping docks.

    The patchwork of harbors and connecting canals on the western side of the district — some dating from the 19th century — will one day give residents the chance not only to live at the water’s edge but also to get around by small boat, canoe and kayak.

    The idea of taking a kayak to get to the office is not meant as a gimmick. Already 50 percent of commuters use bicycles in central Copenhagen, and the city is determined to cut down on car use in the capital’s suburbs, too.

    But gales are also a fact of life here too; the area is exposed to often fearsome winds on its eastern edge.

    Ultimately, the City and Port Authority estimates that Nordhavn will be home to 40,000 residents, with workspace for approximately the same number of people.

    But, as other North European port cities with ambitious development plans have found, like Hamburg and Amsterdam, Copenhagen’s challenge is to grow without compromising what makes it livable, even unique.

    “Over the years, Copenhagen has lost its provincialism and become a cosmopolitan city — which is both a gain and a loss in some ways,” said Thomas E. Kennedy, an American writer who has lived in the Danish capital since 1976.

    “I regret the fact that the vertshuse, the city’s traditional brown bars, are giving way somewhat to chrome and glass cafes, the sausage wagons to fast-food restaurants,” said Mr. Kennedy, who has written a string of novels set in Copenhagen, “Falling Sideways” the most recent of them.

    “When you sit in a pub that Soren Kierkegaard may have sat in, or one in which a Gestapo snitch was liquidated on Hitler’s birthday in 1944 and there’s still a bullet in the wall, your days join history and join the continuum of it,” Mr. Kennedy said.

    Jens Kramer Mikkelsen, a former mayor of Copenhagen who is now managing director of the City and Port Authority, emphasizes the need to introduce an element of flexibility in new suburbs that are created from scratch.

    “Nordhavn will be developed over the next 40 to 50 years,” said Mr. Kramer Mikkelsen, who expects to sell the first plots during the first half of this year.

    “It is important for us as city planners and developers to plan for the unplanned,” he said. “It is important to make space for the will of future generations.”

    Windies cricketer Runako Morton dies in accident

    West Indies cricketer Runako Morton was killed in a car crash here Sunday night.

    The 33-year-old, one of the few cricketers to emerge from the island of Nevis, lost control of the car he was driving and hit a pole, according to reports. He died on the spot.

    Morton had played 15 Test matches, 56 One-day internationals and seven Twenty20s for the West Indies since making his international debut in 2002. He last played in February 2010 in a Twenty20 against Australia in Sydney.

    Former West Indies Chris Gayle, under whom Morton played in the national team, tweeted: "We lost a True Warrior W.I Cricketer Runako Morton-May is soul rest in peace! Our memories together Live On!-My Condolences to his Family."

    Argyle Pink Jubilee
    Huge rare 12.76 carat pink diamond found in Australia

    The huge rough stone was found at Rio's pink diamond operations in the Kimberley region of Western Australia and would take 10 days to cut and polish. A diamond of this calibre is unprecedented -- it has taken 26 years of Argyle production to unearth this stone and we may never see one like this again.

    The individual who gets to wear this remarkable pink diamond will be incredibly lucky indeed. It is likely to go for at least $10 million.

    I AM HACKED

    Hacking is a reality, with every one familiar with using technology of Computers.
    This word is consisted of only 6 alphabets But thee 6 can destroy anyone's life in just few seconds

    HOW DOES IT EFFECT
    It simply snatch your identity, without even knowing you will be finished.

    My dearest close friend suffered from it. Although I will talk about facebook here because my friend is a facebooker. He went to another city for a month and unfortunately facility of internet was not in his reach. During this time his account was hacked. He lost all his close one's due to stuff that a hacker added to his profile.
    He was heavily damaged by the act and he had to give justifications to all his mates. His life was stuck and was in state of worry. He called a computer specialist to understand what's going on. He was shocked by hearing about his account hacking. Now he has started again to built quality networking But still long way to go for him to reach the level where he was...

    Our check and balance can easily solve this major problem. so keep your eyes open.

    My best wishes are with all of you for safe and sound journey of internet

    Proud to be PAKISTANI

    Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy gets Pakistan its first Oscar


    Pakistani filmmaker and first-time Oscar nominee Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy won an Academy Award on Monday for her documentary about acid attack victims, a first for a Pakistani director.

    Her victory shines a spotlight on a subject which affects thousands of women in Pakistan and elsewhere, but is seldom discussed at home. Chinoy dedicated the award to the women of Pakistan.

    The women’s “bravery and resilience in the face of adversity inspires me every single day,” she said. “They are the true heroes of Pakistan.”

    Saving Face chronicles the work of British Pakistani plastic surgeon Mohammad Jawad, who performed reconstructive surgery on survivors of acid attacks in Pakistan.


    Co-director Daniel Junge said he had the idea for the film after hearing about Jawad, and asked Chinoy to work with him. He has been previously nominated for an both an Oscar and an Emmy.

    “To win … and with such a subject — it’s such an honor,” he said

    Bicycle around the carbon cycle: Tiny Diatoms could offset global warming.
    About half the photosynthesis on earth occurs at sea, where tiny phytoplankton such as diatoms “fix” atmospheric carbon dioxide by converting it into organic matter. About 15% of this eventually sinks to the ocean depths, along with the diatom skeletons.

    A 13-year study recently reported in PNAS revealed an unexpected and previously undocumented late summer deep sea sequestration of carbon by a symbiotic combination of cyanobacteria and diatoms. Although diatoms are tiny (about 30 could fit into the width of a human hair), their glass-like skeletons are heavy, so that when they die they take carbon out of the surface water, locking it into deep ocean sediments. Scientists speculate that the increase in day length could be a cue for the diatoms to begin sinking en masse, usually around August.

    Carbon dioxide levels are higher now than the past 2.1 million years. Natural carbon sequestration by diatoms offers a welcome source of remediation.

    Paper (open access):http://www.pnas.org/content/109/6/1842.full

    Extreme Hanging Tents  Unbelievable!!

    Rock climbers began to stay overnight on the rocks in the 50’s. At first they were searching for convenient mountain “shelves” to replace a bed, and now they are using hanging tent systems called portal edges.

    They are designed specially for rock climbers who have to spend multiple days and nights on a big wall climb. Honestly, I wouldn’t be able to sleep hundreds or thousands feet off the ground! Maybe you wouldn’t be scared. Take a look.

    Playing Violent Video Games Good For Your Eyes!
    via: http://goo.gl/WRXDQ

    Parents of young children might find it hard to believe, but playing video games could be good for your eyes. Just ten hours of gaming for four weeks dramatically improved the vision of young men and women who as babies were almost blind.

    After 40 hours of playing a violent video game, they were able to read two extra lines on an eye chart. The men and women studied were born with cataracts in both eyes and as babies could see light but not detail. Although their cataracts were removed, their vision did not return to normal. When they were aged between 19 and 31, they took part in the study, which involved playing an action game in which they took on the role of a solider shooting the enemy or a gunman firing at aliens. Some saw improvements in vision after just 10 hours. After 40 hours, they able to see further down the eye chart, be better at distinguishing the direction of a movement and at telling faces apart.

    The study shows violent games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 were best at helping former cataract sufferers' vision improve.
