In my neighborhood, we call any guy who berates other fathers because they don't shop at Whole Foods or do give their kids vaccines 'that guy with no friends.'(1) But among moms the peer pressure is strong.
Living Photos: Tech Showing How 2D Single Photo Images Can Be 3D Animated Is The Best Thing You'll See Today
The University of Washington algorithm Photo Wake-Up was posted in preprint form on arXiv in December and created a buzz because it can take a person from a 2D photo or a work of art and make them run, walk or jump out of the frame. The system also allows users to view the animation in three dimensions using augmented reality tools. Next week at the Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition in Long Beach, California, the researchers will be showing results.
What if it eliminated child labor? Nearly everyone would agree to that - unless they believe paying more would just lead to more profits by exploiters in developing nations.
It provides not just the first evidence of farming, it also provides early evidence of gender inequality. according to a paper by researchers from the Department of Prehistory and Archaeology at the University of Seville who study prehistoric societies in the Neolithic Period in the Iberian Peninsula.
600 Plant Species In 250 Years Extinct (0.15%) Is NOT 'Bad News For All Species' - Scary Clickbait BBC News - Annotated
This article is scaring people, with the usual “all going to be extinct soon ” hype that we have had so many stories about this year. It’s not true at all. It was a clickbait title and the article itself was also misleading by omission. It did not explain how many species of plants there are. There are around 391,000 species, according to one study in 2016, with 2,000 new species discovered every year. Yes it does matter that 571 have gone extinct. But at 0.15% of the plant species, it is not a mass extinction and we don’t risk a world without plants. Moreover most plants can be preserved as seeds for centuries when dried and kept in cold conditions.
But they engaged in trade also. Millet, originally domesticated in China, was likely consumed at low levels by pastoralists inhabiting the far-flung regions of Siberia and southeastern Kazakhstan, possibly as early as the late third millennium but with the expansion of trans-regional networks across the steppe, when objects and ideas were first regularly exchanged over long-distances, millet consumption began to increase.
And they did, thanks to a genetic database of modern grapevines and 28 archaeological seeds from French sites dating back to the Iron Age. They discovered that Savagnin Blanc (not Sauvignon Blanc) from the Jura region of France was genetically identical to a seed excavated from a medieval site in Orléans.
That means the variety still grown now has grown for at least 900 years as cuttings from just one ancestral plant.
The crater, thought to have been created about 4 billion years ago, is oval-shaped and as wide as 2,000 kilometers (roughly the distance between Waco, Texas, and Washington, D.C.) and several miles deep. Despite its size, it cannot be seen from Earth because it is on the far side of the Moon.
2006 QV89 Asteroid - NO HAZARD - Most Likely Next Impact Splosh In Pacific - In Pictures, For Panicking People And Children
This asteroid is expected to miss. It is classified as NO HAZARD.
NASA and ESA have not issued any warning for this asteroid because it is harmless.
The ESA table looks scary if you aren’t used to numbers. But replace numbers by words and you get:
This is a shorter version of my longer article, mainly in pictures, to help young children and panicked people who often find it hard to think clearly.
In a new survey, 80 percent of gun owners support the concept of personalized guns, referred to as "smart" guns because they include safety features like fingerprint locks to help prevent use by unauthorized individuals. But only 18 percent are willing to buy them.
People who smoke marijuana and are considering having children in the future need to be aware about four serious issues that may impact both men and women according to an article ("Five things to know about ... marijuana and fertility" - the title says five things, but there are only four, the fifth is a plea to send more money) in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal).
The following is useful information for people who may want to conceive.
Four things to know about marijuana and fertility:
Scientists continue to gain ground in the race against wheat stem rust, a pathogen that threatens global food security because of its ability to kill wheat. The new chink in nature's armor was discovered in the first rust virulence molecule that wheat plants detect to 'switch on' built-in resistance and stave off the disease.
Dog owners insist that 'all dogs are puppies', which means our beliefs about their cuteness are not conditional on age, but a paper in Anthrozoos: A Multidisciplinary Journal of the Interactions of People and Animals, suggests otherwise. The authors found that dogs' attractiveness to humans peaks at roughly eight weeks, the same point in time at which their mother weans them and leaves them to fend for themselves.
No Alert Issued For Asteroid 2006 QV89- 4th Most Concerning NO HAZARD Asteroid In ESA Risk List Means Not Concerning At All
This is an example of a “Sensationalist press choose a random asteroid” story. NASA didn’t warn us about it, and nor did ESA. It is expected to miss and is currrently classified as no hazard. It’s been in the table for many years, and there hasn’t been any announcement by anyone, just that for no reason, just “pick a random asteroid time” CNET, the Independent, Fox News and various others decided to run stories about it today.
The mechanism is the magma below the mid-ocean ridges.
"It's the magma chamber breathing, expanding and contracting due to the tides, that's making the faults move," says Christopher Scholz, a seismologist at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.
Low tide correlation to earthquakes is surprising because of the way the mid-ocean fault moves. The fault as a tilted plane that separates two blocks of earth. During movement, the upper block slides down with respect to the lower one.
Not so for "Hamilton" producer Jeffrey Seller and Broadway photographer Josh Lehrer, who are instead funding efforts to use science to clone and plant 100 of the world's oldest and largest trees, called Champion Trees. Like California Redwoods.
