I'm about to lose my house...

agirlwithguts:

I should start by asking you to forgive me for what I am about to say.

I don’t know where to turn or what to do really. I don’t want to be one of those people. But here I am. I feel dirty.

Ehhhh… I’m just going to leave this here. I’m not going to spread it around the internet but if you…

If you’re able to help Sara out, please do…she is a tireless advocate for folks with IBD, and she’s been through more than most of us will ever endure and does it with a smile most of the time.

I Think Twitter Should Buy Nuzzel Immediately, Before Yahoo or Flipboard Does

stoweboyd:

I got access to Nuzzel today, and it is going to immediately join Flipboard as one of the few apps I religiously use everyday to make sense of my Twitter flow. Nuzzel cross-tabulates my incoming stream of tweets, and yields the stories that a whole bunch of my scene are talking about in Twitter….

As a longtime Flipboard user / fan, I need to check this out…

Myokines - Another reason to use your muscles.

shortandsweetvelo:

I’ve heard of cytokines but this is the first I’ve heard about Myokines. From WIKI

Kid logic works better for learning new gizmos - University of California, Berkeley Original Study
- Preschoolers can be smarter than college students at figuring out how unusual toys and gadgets work because they’re more flexible and less biased than adults in their ideas about cause and effect, according to new research. The findings suggest that technology and innovation can benefit from the exploratory learning and probabilistic reasoning skills that come naturally to young children, many of whom are learning to use smartphones even before they can tie their shoelaces. The findings also build upon the researchers’ efforts to use children’s cognitive smarts to teach machines to learn in more human ways.

Beginner’s mind.

Love this…

Oscars, The Grouch

parislemon:

I hate almost all awards shows.1 The one exception has always been the Academy Awards.

I’ve watched the Oscars every year for as long as I can remember. To those who know me as a movie buff, this shouldn’t be surprising. Still, I can’t stand the Golden Globes or that various other pageants you can find on random television stations during awards season. But the Academy Awards always seemed special to me. Beyond reproach.

But I fear I’m starting to lose that loving feeling.

I didn’t watch much of the Oscars, because it seems that it’s more of an entertainment event itself than an actual awards program, and I’m just not into that style of entertainment.  But I did see some of Ellen mugging around with her Samsung mobile phone, taking pictures - I just had no idea that was something orchestrated by Samsung itself.  Another bit of innocence lost…
