Learning! Genetics!

The University of Utah has a pretty great online genetics learning center. Especially fun is this zoom-able comparison of various tiny things (from a coffee bean down to a carbon atom). Neat!

Obama wins 2009 Nobel Peace Prize hours before bombing the moon

Or at least that's what the cheeky comment on metafilter had to say about it.

Joking aside, this is a bit of an odd turn isn't it? As the Carpenters would say, "we've only just begun."
Asked why the prize had been awarded to Mr Obama less than a year after he took office, Nobel Committee head Thorbjoern Jagland said: "It was because we would like to support what he is trying to achieve".
So, basically, the Nobel prizes (at a sweet $1.4m a pop) have become like pro sports contracts - pay for potential.

Dictatorship in the USA
Michael considered fate at 13:21   |   Permalink   |   Post a Comment
Gore Vidal, who predicts a dictatorship in the US soon, is a real spit and vittles kind of guy. If you've read any of his stuff you know he's a straight-out with it sort of guy, and says it like it is. In the article linked above he makes excellent points about the dim-witted-ness of the American populace, complaining that Obama is giving his audience too much credit (he really needs to talk down to them, Vidal thinks).

So is he right? Here is an anecdotal experiment - go to google and type in "can a human " into the search. You will get a drop down of suggestions based on common searches including your terms.. You may be shocked by what is on the top of the list.

For those too lazy, here is a screenshot (via c-dunx):
