From the page: "Catering a TEDx event can be 窶" how do you say it? 窶" costly. So we think it窶s so cool that the organizers of TEDxSydney decided to crowdsource the food for the 2,200 people attending the event in May. All the food in the amazing spread above comes from community gardens and from plants grown in the backyards, windowsills and balconies of both attendees and generous urban farmers throughout New South Wales. This incredible crowdsourcing was organized by Sydney窶s Grow it Local. More than 250 local growers donated food in the end."

The deal is the latest by Intellectual Ventures, a Bellevue, Wash.-based company that's made headlines for accumulating a massive trove of software and design patents, along with other intellectual property.
A major part of IV's business includes licensing patents out to other companies, which can use them for legal protection, though it's also made waves for litigating other companies. "
Spending countless hours digging through archives isn’t without its rewards — namely, such semi-serendipitous finds as gorgeous black-and-white photos of NASA facilities, vintage ads for libraries and reading, yesteryear’s science ads, and mid-century posters from the Golden Age of Travel. My latest addition comes from the public domain images of the U.S. National Archives: a handful of delicious vintage food PSA posters, a number of which were later included in the book Eating with Uncle Sam: Recipes and Historical Bites from the National Archives (public library), based on the National Archive exhibition titled What’s Cooking, Uncle Sam? The Government’s Effect on the American Diet.
Would you be surprised to hear that the human race is slowly becoming dumber, and dumber?
Despite our advancements over the last tens or even hundreds of years, some ‘experts’ believe that humans are losing cognitive capabilities and becoming more emotionally unstable. One Stanford University researcher and geneticist, Dr. Gerald Crabtree, believes that our intellectual decline as a race has much to do with adverse genetic mutations. But human intelligence is suffering for other reasons as well.
"Eierseksjonssameiet RUDSBERGET, gnr. 104, bnr. 693, i Rælingen kommune består av 4 hus med tilsammen 40 boligseksjoner, 1 næringsseksjon (lager), tomteareal, p-plasser og boder til hver seksjon. Eiendommen hadde tidligere adresse Nedre Rælingesvei. I forbindelse med regulering og utbygging fikk eiendommen adresse Rudsberget 1 - 4.
Litt om Rudsberget i tidligere tider
Hus på vandring – fogdens hus på Rudsberget 1790.
Fogdegården på Rudsberget var utypisk for bygda. Det var det største huset i Rælingen og bygget av fogd Dedekam i 1730-årene. Huset inneholdt blant annet storstue, kammer, dagligstue, skrivekammer, sengekammer og kjøkken med kjeller under. Det må ha vært langt flere rom enn dette, for som vi ser på bildet er huset på to fulle etasjer samt loft. I 1892 ble huset revet. Tømmeret ble brukt i et hus i Solheimsgaten i Lillestrøm. Et annet hus på tunet bestod av en” skolestue, haugestue (havestue), skrivestue og et kjøkken med kielder under”. I tillegg fantes bryggerhus og drengestue.

From the page: "Diabetes mellitus, a disorder of glucose regulation, is a global burden affecting 366 million people across the world. An artificial âoeclosed-loopâ system able to mimic pancreas activity and release insulin in response to glucose level changes has the potential to improve patient compliance and health. Herein we develop a glucose-mediated release strategy for the self-regulated delivery of insulin using an injectable and acid-degradable polymeric network. Formed by electrostatic interaction between oppositely charged dextran nanoparticles loaded with insulin and glucose-specific enzymes, the nanocomposite-based porous architecture can be dissociated and subsequently release insulin in a hyperglycemic state through the catalytic conversion of glucose into gluconic acid. In vitro insulin release can be modulated in a pulsatile profile in response to glucose concentrations. In vivo studies validated that these formulations provided improved glucose control in type 1 diabetic mice subcutaneously administered with a degradable nano-network. A single injection of the developed nano-network facilitated stabilization of the blood glucose levels in the normoglycemic state (

From the page: "Take a hike! According to a study referenced in Scientific American, participants who spent four days hiking without electronic devices scored nearly fifty percent higher on creativity tests than a control group. Fifty percent is a HUGE difference. It may not be possible to go hiking in the woods for four days, but it is possible to incorporate the concept into your daily life. Take a few moments each day to stroll around your yard or the grounds of your apartment complex WITHOUT your cell or smartphone. The walking will fulfill the need for more movement, while the daily observing of the world around you will serve to inspire your writing. **NOTE: If you regularly work out with apps on your smartphone, we recommend that you silence your ringtone/notifications so you are free of distractions and can let the creativity flow more freely through your mind."

"Lee, who has just completed a Masters degree in the subject from Massey University, says we know very little about those who actually do return.
On a recent online discussion created by KEA - a non-profit organisation dedicated to leveraging expat Kiwis' contribution to New Zealand - returning expats were surprised at the little value potential employers placed on what they have to offer. Many said employers were even fearful of hiring them.
"I was actually told by several people that I didn't get the job because the manager perceived that I knew more than he did and therefore felt threatened," one return migrant said."
From the page: "Communicating in short, simple emotionally charged messages is essential for stimulating the Limbic Brain. Unlike the neocortex, our mammalian brain is actually incapable of processing much information. More than driving an impulse or decision, the Limbic Brain is also responsible for our feelings of loyalty, love and devotion. So not only are Nike, Apple and Bill Clinton able to drive choice with their simple emotionally charges messages, they are able to create loyalty so strong that even rational arguments can not unseat those feelings."

9 May 2013
The new ionic liquid pretreatment of cellulosic biomass yields a biphasic solution, a lower phase rich in sugar and an upper phases rich in ionic liquid. (Courtesy of Simmons/JBEI) Click to enlarge.
Researchers at the US Department of Energy (DOE)窶s Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) have developed a new technique for pre-treating cellulosic biomass with ionic liquids that could reduce the cost of producing advanced biofuels from plant sugars.
This new technique requires none of the expensive enzymes used in previous ionic liquid pretreatments, and yields a biphasic solution窶"a lower phase rich in sugar and an upper phases rich in ionic liquid窶"making it easier to recover fuel sugars and recycle the ionic liquid. An open access paper describing this research has been published in the journal Biotechnology for Biofuels. "
