Is Believing in God Evolutionarily Advantageous?


Jesse Bering's mother died of cancer on a Sunday, in her own bed, at 9 o'clock at night. Bering and his siblings closed her door and went downstairs, hoping they might somehow get some sleep.

It was a long, hard night, but around 7 a.m., something happened: The wind chimes outside his mother's window started to chime.

Bering remembers waking to the tinkle of these bells, a small but distinct sound in an otherwise silent house. And he remembers thinking that those bells carried a very specific message.

"It seemed to me ... that she was somehow telling us that she had made it to the other side. You know, cleared customs in heaven,", Bering says.

Georgia May Jagger, who's been the face of Hudson Jeans for two seasons, appears in a very sexy, very underwear-less new video for the label, titled "Lips". The ad spends the majority of its airtime zoomed in on Jagger's electric-red mouth, which, to be fair, is pretty fascinating.

The Moral Landscape: Q & A with Sam Harris


With Facebook Places, you can avoid rude awakenings

She
I'm thinking about a usefulness for geolocation gadgets nobody has thought before. I can't understand why geolocation actors are only showing the advantages of knowing who is near to increase your interactions wiht friends. Because sometimes, more than it seems to be, if I know where is she, I want to get out of there, not near. I'm thinking on my ex-wife.


The man who wanted to live without time

Maurizio Montalbini | Image: Selfportrait
Maurizio Montalbini | Image: Selfportrait
Losing track of time is no easy task. We are immersed in a world of time references, even if we pretend to live without a watch. The movements in our neighborhood, traffic levels, the amount and the stereotype of pedestrians who walk by the window, the noises that occur throughout the day, night, and even their own hours of daylight and darkness. We are surrounded by temporary signals. And in the imaginary case that the signals disappear, our last resort when estimating the passage of the hours would be determined by our internal clock, known as circadian rhythm.

Facebook Places and betting by geolocation


Facebook Places outside US
And finally, Facebook launched its geolocation service, called Places. He did it from partnering with other market players, such as Foursquare and Gowalla, but the bet Facebook is quite different. Theirs is not put together a game with virtual goods and badges, it is simply a social network based on the geolocation intended to tell our friends where we are. But while Facebook has more than 500 million registered users all bets on this market acquires new meanings. One of them is quite obvious: the possibility that it becomes a marketing tool for businesses, particularly those linked to the travel market.

Blue Rose is a 1956 studio album by Rosemary Clooney, accompanied by Duke Ellington and his orchestra.

Clooney was pregnant at the time of this recording, and so she dubbed her vocals in Los Angeles rather than travel to the Ellington band in New York. The final two tracks on the CD reissue, "If You Were in My Place (What Would You Do?)" and "Just A-Sittin' and A-Rockin'" were originally issued as a single and not included on the original LP issue.

The Green Lantern Movie Trailer 2010

The Green Lantern
In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.

Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.

Your Password Should Be At Least 12 Random Characters Long to Be Safe

Uh, yeah, about that... I've not memory for that.

Amplify’d from lifehacker.com

According to a study at Georgia Tech Research Institute, your password should be at least 12 random characters long (and include letters, numbers, and symbols) if you want to consider yourself safe from brute force password hacks. From MSNBC: "'Eight-character passwords are inadequate now ... If eight characters is all you use, and if you restrict your characters to only alphabetic letters, it can be cracked in minutes,' said Richard Boyd, a senior researcher at GTRI." We've highlighted how easily common passwords can be hacked, but even if you've got a system auto-generating your passwords, you may want to make sure you're going for at least 12. It may seem like a lot to remember (because it is), but that's where a great password management solution comes in handy. [MSNBC via @wjrothman]

Everything you need to know about Facebook Places

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg at Facebook’s HQ on August 18, 2010
On last August, 18 at Facebook’s HQ, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg officially announced Facebook’s long anticipated Places feature, saying it is meant for “serendipitous meetings”.

"This is going to a really fun and interesting summer”, said Zuckerberg.

How location services can survive in spite of Facebook’s entry

How location services can survive in spite of Facebook’s entry
Good friend Alex Wilhelm wrote about how Facebook’s location integration is the destination and termination of prognostication on the location sensation. (I apologize for this sentence).

The argument is simple: Facebook interfaces with location services, and because it’s way bigger it’ll become how people update location on mobile.

After all, your social capital on Facebook is way bigger than on Foursquare.

Twetiquette. It’s time to break out Miss Manners on Twitter.

Amplify’d from thenextweb.com

This is something that’s been bugging me for a while now, so I figured that this was as good of a time as any to let it out there.

Who and what you retweet is not a sign of the influence you have. It doesn’t make you cooler. It isn’t a “Hah! Look at me!” moment. It is simply a way of saying “Hey, I found this interesting, and you might too”.

With the sudden influx of sites that are attempting to use Twitter to measure a person’s influence, it’s no surprise that we’re seeing more and more retweets of things. The problem with that, however, is that those of us on the blogging side of the world can see some pretty ridiculous trends.

Retweeting Before Reading

I wrote an article on my personal site (which I won’t link to here, but I’m sure you can find via a quick Google search) that brought this right into the forefront. I screwed up, one day, on TNW. I posted something that I quickly thereafter found out was really old. So I pulled the post down with a 301 redirect that went to the TNW front page.

That non-existent article got over 100 retweets in less than an hour. At last count, actually, it was nearing 200 as the title continues to float around the Twitterverse.

Tossing out an educated guess, I’d say that a typical TNW article gets retweeted about 1/4th as much as it is read. So if you see 250 retweets, you can bet that roughly 1000 people have read it. That number fluctuates, of course, but that should be pretty solid.

With that in mind, we sometimes see articles (like one that @m4tt wrote today) that have huge retweet counts that can even surpass their read counts.

Stop. The. Insanity.

Good Intentions, Foolish Actions

It seems to me that most retweets happen because people find something interesting and want to pass it on to their friends/followers. However, in doing that, often times it happens before someone actually reads what they’re tweeting.

What happens, as a result of this, is an overall watering down of the quality that gets pushed around Twitter. The service that can sometimes be the fastest way to disseminate can also be diluted of quality content so quickly that it becomes momentarily irrelevant

Foolish Actions, Foolish Intentions

Then, of course, there is the flip side. Some folks will retweet things very quickly, without so much as reading the story behind it, simply so they can be the “source”. The problem with that, however, is that they’re not the source. The source is what they’re retweeting.

It goes along with an article that @Alex wrote about things that you need to stop tweeting about. The fact is, the majority of huge people or sites get their stuff retweeted. So much so, in fact, that when you add to that it just becomes spammy.

Twetiquette

In the world of Twitter, it is everyone’s job to play “Miss Manners“. If someone’s being spammy, call them out on it. This includes me, as well. I want to know when I’m annoying people, because it can happen easily given the amount of things that catch my attention.

If someone’s being a douchebag, retweeting the things you’ve already seen a few hundred times, there is one simple solution: Unfollow.

And finally, for the love of God, don’t retweet an article before you re-read it. The next thing you know, you’re retweeting a catchy headline that has nothing to do with the actual content. Egg on your face? You bet.

The Web Means the End of Forgetting

When historians of the future look back on the perils of the early digital age, Stacy Snyder may well be an icon. The problem she faced is only one example of a challenge that, in big and small ways, is confronting millions of people around the globe: how best to live our lives in a world where the Internet records everything and forgets nothing — where every online photo, status update, Twitter post and blog entry by and about us can be stored forever. With Web sites like LOL Facebook Moments, which collects and shares embarrassing personal revelations from Facebook users, ill-advised photos and online chatter are coming back to haunt people months or years after the fact. Examples are proliferating daily: there was the 16-year-old British girl who was fired from her office job for complaining on Facebook, “I’m so totally bored!!”; there was the 66-year-old Canadian psychotherapist who tried to enter the United States but was turned away at the border — and barred permanently from visiting the country — after a border guard’s Internet search found that the therapist had written an article in a philosophy journal describing his experiments 30 years ago with L.S.D.

Four years ago, Stacy Snyder, then a 25-year-old teacher in training at Conestoga Valley High School in Lancaster, Pa., posted a photo on her MySpace page that showed her at a party wearing a pirate hat and drinking from a plastic cup, with the caption “Drunken Pirate.” After discovering the page, her supervisor at the high school told her the photo was “unprofessional,” and the dean of Millersville University School of Education, where Snyder was enrolled, said she was promoting drinking in virtual view of her under-age students. As a result, days before Snyder’s scheduled graduation, the university denied her a teaching degree. Snyder sued, arguing that the university had violated her First Amendment rights by penalizing her for her (perfectly legal) after-hours behavior. But in 2008, a federal district judge rejected the claim, saying that because Snyder was a public employee whose photo didn’t relate to matters of public concern, her “Drunken Pirate” post was not protected speech.

According to a recent survey by Microsoft, 75 percent of U.S. recruiters and human-resource professionals report that their companies require them to do online research about candidates, and many use a range of sites when scrutinizing applicants — including search engines, social-networking sites, photo- and video-sharing sites, personal Web sites and blogs, Twitter and online-gaming sites. Seventy percent of U.S. recruiters report that they have rejected candidates because of information found online, like photos and discussion-board conversations and membership in controversial groups.


Technological advances, of course, have often presented new threats to privacy. In 1890, in perhaps the most famous article on privacy ever written, Samuel Warren and Louis Brandeis complained that because of new technology — like the Kodak camera and the tabloid press — “gossip is no longer the resource of the idle and of the vicious but has become a trade.” But the mild society gossip of the Gilded Age pales before the volume of revelations contained in the photos, video and chatter on social-media sites and elsewhere across the Internet. Facebook, which surpassed MySpace in 2008 as the largest social-networking site, now has nearly 500 million members, or 22 percent of all Internet users, who spend more than 500 billion minutes a month on the site. Facebook users share more than 25 billion pieces of content each month (including news stories, blog posts and photos), and the average user creates 70 pieces of content a month. There are more than 100 million registered Twitter users, and the Library of Congress recently announced that it will be acquiring — and permanently storing — the entire archive of public Twitter posts since 2006.


In Brandeis’s day — and until recently, in ours — you had to be a celebrity to be gossiped about in public: today all of us are learning to expect the scrutiny that used to be reserved for the famous and the infamous. A 26-year-old Manhattan woman told The New York Times that she was afraid of being tagged in online photos because it might reveal that she wears only two outfits when out on the town — a Lynyrd Skynyrd T-shirt or a basic black dress. “You have movie-star issues,” she said, “and you’re just a person.”


We’ve known for years that the Web allows for unprecedented voyeurism, exhibitionism and inadvertent indiscretion, but we are only beginning to understand the costs of an age in which so much of what we say, and of what others say about us, goes into our permanent — and public — digital files. The fact that the Internet never seems to forget is threatening, at an almost existential level, our ability to control our identities; to preserve the option of reinventing ourselves and starting anew; to overcome our checkered pasts.


In a recent book, “Delete: The Virtue of Forgetting in the Digital Age,” the cyberscholar Viktor Mayer-Schönberger cites Stacy Snyder’s case as a reminder of the importance of “societal forgetting.” By “erasing external memories,” he says in the book, “our society accepts that human beings evolve over time, that we have the capacity to learn from past experiences and adjust our behavior.” In traditional societies, where missteps are observed but not necessarily recorded, the limits of human memory ensure that people’s sins are eventually forgotten. By contrast, Mayer-Schönberger notes, a society in which everything is recorded “will forever tether us to all our past actions, making it impossible, in practice, to escape them.” He concludes that “without some form of forgetting, forgiving becomes a difficult undertaking.”


It’s often said that we live in a permissive era, one with infinite second chances. But the truth is that for a great many people, the permanent memory bank of the Web increasingly means there are no second chances — no opportunities to escape a scarlet letter in your digital past. Now the worst thing you’ve done is often the first thing everyone knows about you.

Definition of influential people

Provocation
I believe that you are someone influential if what you publish makes something previously unrecognized be borned on me, professional or personally.

It is not a condition to me that you have thousands of followers, who twit with a set frequency or you retwitteen so assiduously and, importantly, I do not care if you follow or not follow me. For me, you can be influential people whether you're an unknown person or a important figure recognized by all.

If you can disturb me, inform me, persuade me, teach me, provoke me, move me, angry me... in short, make me feel curiousity, you are a person of influence.

Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock & Jack DeJohnette - Prism 1985


Definición de Persona Influyente

Provocación
Considero que eres alguien influyente si lo que publicas hace nacer en mi algo que antes no existía, profesional o personalmente.

No es una condición para mi que tengas miles de seguidores, que twitees con una frecuencia establecida o que te retwitteen de forma asidua e, importante, no me interesa si me sigues o no me sigues. Para mi, puedes ser una persona influyente bien seas una persona desconocida y anónima o un personaje público por todos reconocido.





Si eres capaz de inquietarme, informarme, persuadirme, enseñarme, provocarme, conmoverme, enojarme… en fin, hacerme sentir curiosidad, eres una persona influyente.

About the album's title, Gerrard explained: " If you read about African music, they believe that during the process of making this music that you come into contact with spirits from another plane. They say that this place is like a mirror of the world we live in, [...] With the best music, you don't find the composer or the musicians within the work, you find yourself, your own feelings.

"Sanvean" was written in September 1993. It too was previously performed in concerts by Dead Can Dance and eventually in

Hans Zimmer's score with the vocal participation of Lisa Gerrard, who does not intend to follow either the path undertaken Miklós Rózsa or Alex North in the titles of Roman or melodies evoke the splendor of peplums. In reality, the road taken has been to give effect to show the film, making a dramatic double reading about the main character (as I see him as a human or legend) and recreate the environment.

Nuestro cerebro "se cablea como Internet"


Cerebro de Homer
El cerebro se organiza y se cablea como una gran red interconectada –similar a internet– y no como un sistema jerárquico donde se dan órdenes desde la cúpula, como se creyó por mucho tiempo, afirma una nueva investigación.

The Movement to Smother Solidarity

Dove of Peace
Should you shut up about human rights abuses because they are happening far away, to people you don't know, who have a different culture or colour or creed? There is now a growing movement across the world saying that, yes, empathy should be cauterised at national borders.

Professor Philip Zimbardo on the Secrets Powers of Time

A very amazing presentation about we feel the past, the present and the future

American psychologist Philip Zimbardo, well known for conducting the Stanford Prison Study, gives a talk on The Secret Powers of Time that is brought to life through RSA animate. He first identifies the six main time perspectives in which people live; two focus on the past, two on the present and two on the future. If a number of people share a certain time perspective it can come to characterise a nation; Zimbardo talks of his native Italy and the popularity of the separatist Lega party that reflects the future-orientated time perspective of the North and the present-orientated South. The average American male will have clocked up 10,000 hours playing video games by the age of twenty-one and, according to Zimbardo, this causes a digital rewiring of the brain. Children of today operate in digital fields that they have active control over but in the traditional, analogue classroom they have a passive role and therefore struggle to engage in learning.

This House would rescind the UK invitation to the Pope

This debate took place at the 2010 Hay Festival of Literature and the Arts. Only audio is available for this event; you can listen to the debate on the player above.

Arguing in favour of the motion are Johann Hari and David Aaronovitch.

Johann Hari begins the debate by arguing that the pope holds ultimate responsibility for allowing the ongoing abuse of children to take place and for maintaining the Vatican policy of dealing with the abuse in house. He states that opposing the visit is not anti-Catholic and furthermore, should the Pope be allowed to visit, then he should be arrested upon arrival.

David Aaronovitch asserts that there is no place for the Pope in the modern world. The lack of accountability and transparency that surrounds the Vatican and the position of the Pope is a contradiction with our values to such an extent that the invitation should be rescinded.

Arguing against the motion are Helena Kennedy and Phillipe Sands.Read more at richarddawkins.net
